WE’RE ON A ROLL! This issue of the Cranbrook Daily Townsman and Kimberley Daily Bulletin is literally hot off the press. After months of renovations, construction and general tinkering, our new GOSS Community Web Offset Press is officially in action, printing copies of the Townsman, Bulletin, Fernie Free Press and Creston Valley Advance, with more to follow. It replaces an aging Harris V15, which had been faithfully printing your papers for more than 35 years. In this picture from Friday, February 1, press operator Dave Wendell sees to the machinery’s first run: the Free Press’s winter supplement.

College of the Rockies is helping to fill a huge demand by industry for industrial mechanics by offering an Industrial Mechanic/ Millwright Foundation (Pre-Apprentice) program this spring. The 24-week program will start March 4 at College of the Rockies’ Gold Creek campus. Industrial mechanics, also known as millwrights, are an essential part of many industries in Canada as these skilled professionals are responsible for ensuring stationary, on-site equipment is maintained and running efficiently. College of the Rockies’ Trades Programs Department Head, Kim Buchan pointed out, “Millwrights install, dismantle, move, repair, overhaul and maintain machinery and heavy equipment. Industries rely on these welltrained individuals to ensure productivity remains high in their plants. “Tradespeople with these skills can find work in a wide variety of industries, including oil and gas, forestry, mining, construction, manufacturing and processing. It is a comprehensive and highly in-demand trade,” Buchan continued. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates receive credit for Level One Technical Training as well as 425 work-based training hours. For more information on the Industrial Mechanic/Millwright program, contact Cindy Touzin at 250-489-2751 ext. 3337 or touzin@

Kimberley RCMP report Alleged hit and run suspect comes forward

Cpl. C. Ne wel For the Bulletin

Impaired Drivers Yes, the Christmas season is over, but police are still on the lookout for impaired drivers. In January the Kimberley RCMP issued four, 90-day Immediate Roadside Suspensions (IRP) to impaired drives. There were also several 24 and threeday suspensions for alcohol and drugs. One happened right in front of the officer. He observed the driver go right up onto the piled snow along the roadway. At first he thought there might be a medical condition that quickly changed when he detected an odor an alcohol. The sad part, the driver was only going 2 blocks. It would have been very easy to walk, but now there will be no driving for 90 days. Expensive ride.

Feel good Every once in awhile

Elderly man struck by vehicle in Townsite last Thursday C AROLYN GR ANT

This driver drove over a snow bank in front of police. police officers attends a call that has a happy endings and makes them feel good. We are all out there to help, some may disagree, but there is a genuine desire to do the best we can. It happened early last week. I got a call at 3:30 am about a disturbance. A woman was banging on a door and the homeowner did not know her or why she was banging on his door.

Usually these types of call are alcohol related and don’t end well for somebody, this case was different. I arrived to find the woman still there. She was 83! She was cold, disorientated and not happy. I was not able to determine where she lived, but after some questioning and queries on my computer I came up with family in Cranbrook. I took her to them and found out she

OPEN HOUSE Draft Amendment to the City of Cranbrook Official Community Plan The City of Cranbrook is considering adopting an amendment to the City’s Official Community Plan (OCP). Specifically, the proposed draft comprehensive amendment will update information and policy directions based on the City’s Integrated Sustainability Plan (ICSP) and Growth Management Study (GMS). The amendment will add new and updated policies with respect to Cranbrook’s regional context, sustainable land use, municipal boundary extension, and social, institutional and community considerations. In addition, the amendments will also update a number of provisions and guidelines for the City’s Development Permit Areas which will help clarify and streamline the development application process. The purpose of the open house is to provide an opportunity to review the draft bylaw amendment and collect feedback. There will be a short presentation at 7:15 p.m. The Open House will be held at: Manual Training School Cranbrook Public Library 1212 2nd Street North, Cranbrook Tuesday, February 5, 2013 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm If you have any questions, please contact Rob Veg, Senior Planner at (250) 489-0241 or Copies of the draft bylaw amendment will be made available at the Open House.

had moved to Kimberley two days ago and was not adjusting well. I was happy to get her into a warm house with family and out of the -10 winter night. Even though it was 4:30 am I felt good and I’d made a difference.

Kimberley RCMP are clearing up confusion around a vehicle and pedestrian collision in Townsite on Thursday, January 31. Cpl. Chris Newel says that an elderly man, aged 85, was found injured on 4th Avenue about 10 a.m. Thursday. Newel says the man recalled walking along 4th near Rossland Street when he saw a dark vehicle coming towards him. “He put his arms up to protect himself and the next thing he knew he was lying in the snow bank. He sustained injury (bruising) to his right forearm,” Newel said last week. “Although the male could have

slipped and fallen on the icy surface, police believe he was struck by the vehicle. The injured male has some health issues, which has prevented police from learning exactly what happened.” A witness told police they saw a young male at the scene with a broken off car mirror in his hands. Another passerby told police two young males were helping the elderly man but left without providing details. RCMP were looking for the suspect last week, but now the driver has come forward. “The driver clipped the elderly male as he rounded the corner. The male was walking on the road and there was some visibility issues,” said Cpl. Newel. “The driver did stop, spoke to the man and offered assistance. The pedestrian said he was fine, so the driver departed.” Kimberley RCMP thanked the driver for coming forward.

Three cheers for Library volunteers C AROLYN GR ANT

For Pat Stanton and Pat Campbell the reasons for their longtime

volunteer work at the Kimberley Public Library are simple. They love books and they love people.

The two Pats, as they are named by Library Director Karin von Wittgenstein, have been giving their time

to the Library for many years — Pat S. for 10 years and Pat C. for 35. The Kimberley Public Library is large-

City of Kimberley PUBLIC NOTICE The City of Kimberley hereby gives notice that it intends to amend City of Kimberley Zoning Bylaw No. 1850, 1994. “Bylaw No. 2463, City of Kimberley Zoning Bylaw No. 1850, 1994, Amendment No. 115, 2013” proposes to add the following definition to section 3.04: “PLACE OF WORSHIP means a building, structure, or part thereof, which is primarily used for the practice of religion and faith‐based spiritual purposes wherein people assemble for religious worship, faith‐based teaching, fellowship and community social outreach.  Accessory uses include, but are not limited to, classrooms for religious instruction, programs for community social benefit, administrative offices related to the place of worship, and one dwelling unit. The reason for the amendment is to define a place of worship and permitted accessory uses. The amendment also proposes to repeal Section 7.14 (1)(j) of Bylaw No. 1850 relating to P-1 Public Institution Zone and substituting a new Section 7.14 (1)(j) as follows:

Pat Stanton and Pat Campbell have been volunteering at the Kimberley Public Library for 10 and 35 years respectively.

“(j)     place of worship” The reason for the amendment is to replace the permitted use ‘church’ with ‘place of worship’. The amendment also proposes to rename Section 7.14 (3) as Section 7.14 (3)(a) and add the following section 7.14 (3)(b): “(b) No person shall site an accessory building to a place of worship in the P-1 zone which has: (i)

A front yard less than 6.0 m (19.7 ft.);


A rear yard less than 1.5 m (5 ft.);


An interior side yard less than 1.5 m (5 ft.);


An exterior side yard less than 3 m (9.8 ft.).

The amendment also proposes to rename section 7.14 (4) as Section 7.14 (4)(a) and add the following section 7.14 (4)(b): “(b) to

The maximum height of a detached building for a dwelling unit accessory a place of worship in the P-1 zone shall be 7.62 m (25 ft.) or 85% of the height of the principal building, whichever is the lesser.


The maximum height of an accessory detached building in the P-1 zone shall be 4.5 m (15 ft.) above finished grade.

The reason for these amendments is to define siting and size and dimensions of buildings and structures accessory to a place of worship and to ensure ancillary buildings and structures remain subordinate in size to the primary structure. As many of the P-1 zoned parcels with established places of worship are adjacent to residentially zoned properties, residential setback and dimension regulations have been applied in order to promote a gradual transition between accessory structures in the P-1 zone and adjacent residential parcels. A Public Hearing for Bylaw No. 2463 will be held on Tuesday, February 12, 2013 at 6:45 p.m. in the Council Chamber at City Hall, 340 Spokane Street, Kimberley, BC. If you believe that your interest in property is affected by the proposed bylaw, you may: a)

submit written presentations to City Hall prior to the hearing, or


submit written and/or verbal presentations at the hearing.

You may inspect Bylaw No. 2463, Bylaw No. 1850 and the supporting documentation at City Hall, 340 Spokane Street, Kimberley, BC weekdays, except statutory holidays, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. For further information, please call Planning Services at City Hall 250-427-9665. DATED the 31st day of January, 2013

Wittgenstein said. Pat C. began volunteering when the Library was upstairs at City Hall, and kept going through the move to its current location in 1980. She has seen plenty of changes over the years, the most welcome one being the recent renovations. “The latest renovations are marvelous,” she said. “That upstairs is just glorious.” The volunteers do whatever is necessary from shelving books to helping patrons. “Typically after the weekend the book drop is very full. We’re very grateful that Pat and Pat are here every Tuesday. It takes a long time to put the books away,” von Wittgenstein said. It takes even longer, Pat S. admits, when something catches your eye. “I call it shelf reading,” she said. “You find something you like and you sit and read a bit.” Pat C. says that she intends to keep on volunteering as long as her health is good.

Pat S. has no difficulty getting out of the house. “The busier the better,” she said. “I swim on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, Tuesday is the Library, Thursday I sing and I play bridge in between.” “She hardly has time to come here,” Pat C. joked. All kidding aside, von Wittgenstein says that she appreciates the time Pat Stanton and Pat Campbell give to the Library. “Not only do we appreciate their help (hugely) we also look forward to their humor and presence each Tuesday morning.”

What’s Up?

Letters to the Editor Confederation Park I’ve been interested in the work that has been done by the Highways Department to beautify the west entrance of the city. They have made adjustments to make the entrance and exit to/from Cranbrook’s Confederation Park safer and easier for tourists pulling trailers. The Confederation monument, plaque and the time capsule have safely been relocated next to the Cranbrook Chamber’s Visitor Centre. It appears that most of the work was done at no cost to the City. However, now is the time for the City Fathers, and Mothers, to decide if some of our present tax surplus can be used to complete this project. Our Confederation Park has to be the ONLY quiet, free parking spot that is easily accessible from Highway 3 for tourists as they visit our city. It is definitely the only spot where children can get out of their vehicles, safely run around and get some exercise. It is also a great spot for dogs to be given exercise after being cooped up. Not only is this project destined to beautify the west entrance to Cranbrook, it can also draw visitors to the Visitor Centre for information on what Cranbrook has to offer. The same visitors will be exposed to the work done by Ducks Unlimited and can learn of the importance of this area to the Ktunaxa. The same visitors can be shown the work that is done to ensure the safe breeding of our local turtles. Even the account of how Elizabeth Lake got its name is a great story to share. This is our Confederation Park. In spite of another recent “Janus” column, how many Chamber members, city councillors and citizens know about how important a role was played by one resident of Cranbrook when British Columbia was brought into Confederation? Henry E. Seelye played a pivotal role in the Confederation discussions taking place in Ottawa. He ensured B.C. was given responsible government and the status of a province, and was the person who sent the first news of the successful negotiation back to B.C. Henry Seelye is buried in our Cranbrook cemetery and apparently was a member of the first white family to live in the Cranbrook area. We could promote these facts and take pride in his being part of our province’s history by putting up information signs for visitors drawn into Confederation Park. I implore Chamber of Commerce members, city councillors and the citizens of Cranbrook to get behind a decision to use some of our surplus tax funds to ensure the completion of this worthwhile project. Let’s treat the travelling public to at least one attractive entrance to our city and to a place where they will be encouraged to stop. Let’s not welcome visitors to our city by showing them yet another half finished project. Dave Humphrey Cranbrook

Snowmobilers, caribou I was quite concerned to see the small article titled “Snowmobilers lead predators to caribou” in the January 24th Daily Townsman. An uninformed reader might be lead to believe that there was some

truth to the headline. Our club, the Cranbrook Snowmobile Club has been a leader in protecting habitat for caribou in the Lumberton area. The club “voluntarily” closed many popular snowmobiling so that the local caribou herd might have a chance for survival. Countless hours were spent in meetings and placing signs marking the closed areas. Even though caribou have not been seen in recent years in many of these closures, the club supported the closures in the off chance that the caribou might begin to recover and repopulate areas that were determined by biologists to be suitable for caribou winter habitat. No data or research paper has ever stated that predators will follow snowmobile tracks and subsequently prey on the caribou. Predation by wolves and cougars is the leading cause of caribou mortality but this occurs primarily in the summer months when caribou are foraging in the lower areas of the mountains. The Cranbrook Snowmobile Club believed that the recent trans-location of caribou to augment the local herd was at best a last ditch effort to try and bring this remnant herd back to a sustainable level. The science seems to suggest that transplanting caribou and other ungulates is not usually successful. With only 4 out of 21 donor caribou surviving, the club now has serious questions and concerns about the second proposed transplant tentatively scheduled for this spring. We have not seen any plans that would indicate the newest transplants would fare any better. Through our Stewardship Management Agreement (still awaiting signing by MOE) we educate local snowmobilers, install and maintain signage of caribou closure areas and have volunteer patrols to ensure that these closures are enforced. We are doing our part to ensure that caribou have a chance at survival. Over the past five seasons in our management area, club members have not seen a single resident caribou; although one of the 2012 transplants was observed walking down the road on the way out of the Lumberton area in the late spring after the snowmobile season had ended. Perhaps you could have your writers research the facts before printing information that casts our local snowmobile community in a poor light. We deserve much better from our local newspaper. Doug Hogg President Cranbrook Snowmobile Club

Tax ‘savings’ The other day I received a booklet from the Federal Government, courtesy of David Wilks, MP for Kootenay-Columbia, outlining “Tax Savings for You and Your Family”. On the back of the book it states “the Ministerial Offices of both Finance and The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) have reviewed and fact checked the document’s text.” What the booklet fails to mention is the gargantuan largess bestowed on Canada’s corporations. Here are some other facts to consider: • Statistics Canada numbers show Canadian non-financial corporations with

monday, FEBRuary 4, 2013 Page 5


a cash hoard of $526 billion at the end of the first quarter of 2012, an increase of 43 per cent since the recession ended in 2009 (The Globe and Mail, August 22, 2012). • Canada’s corporate tax rate is among the lowest of the low. “When Prime Minister Stephen Harper came to power in 2006, the federal corporate tax rate was 21 per cent. That was down from 24.5 per cent in 1990 and 30 per cent in 1980. Ottawa reduced it to 19 per cent in 2009, 18 per cent in 2010, 16.5 per cent in 2011 and 15 per cent in 2012.” (The Globe and Mail, October 8, 2012). Isn’t it obvious what is really happening in this country? Tax savings for ordinary Canadians are but a pittance, a bone tossed to placate the electorate, and remember, while all this fantastic wealth was being pushed towards those who really don’t need it, the government introduced legislation to raise the age of retirement, not lower it. Try to think of these things not just the next time you do your taxes, but when the next election comes around. Henry Gale Kimberley

Customer Service I just wanted to submit a letter to the editor regarding a local business where the customer service was exceptional. Recently I was having car troubles. I called BCAA, and the young man that showed up just jump-started my car, but suggested I probably needed a new battery. I then drove around (leaving my vehicle running ) and priced out batteries. The first place I had priced it out at was very nice, but was going to have to order it in. After also hearing this from two other places, I was on my way back to the first when I passed a little shop on Theatre Road that I hadn’t even known was there. I pulled in, thinking I probably would get the same answers, but to my delight this young man and his team made me welcome right away. Said they would have it ordered in, knock another $20 off the lowest price and would put it in for me for nothing. They suggested I just leave it for a couple hours. Less than two hours later, the owner called to say the battery was there, but he couldn’t in good faith put it in, as he’d pulled my old one out and tested it and it was perfectly fine. His actual words were, “I’d be ripping you off if I put the new one in!” So then I asked what I should do if the car died again, and he said he didn’t think it would but if it did, then to call him wherever I was and he’d come and put the new one in for me then. So my friend drove me back, and I was fully expecting to at least pay for his time, but he handed me the keys, and said have a good day. I couldn’t believe it. He didn’t know I’d been having a rough time, and his act of kindness almost had me in tears. So thank you to Ryan and the guys from Cranbrook Auto Repair. You will definitely have my future business, and I highly recommend to anyone else to give this business a try as well. Leslie Long Cranbrook

The world’s stupidest products

Of course there’s the Pet Rock. Rememing it. And the single-most pleasing scent in all the world ber those? Who needs a rock in a box, that is that of a baby. You may dispute if you you can pretend is your pet? No one needs want, but any parent knows that smell — that, we all said. Tell that to inventor Gary that unmistakable, soothing, wonderful Dahl who made millions on that little venture. Well, tell it to him if scent of baby — is the best you can find him on that smell ever. tropical island he is no You know who agrees doubt inhabiting. with me? Dolce and GabAnd of course there’s bana, the Italian luxury inCarolyn the singing fish. How many dustry fashion house. In Grant homes did you walk into fact, Dolce and Gabbana and your host insisted you agree so whole-heartedly listen to the bass sing that they have just introduced a new scent to their line of perfumes ‘Don’t Worry, Be Happy’? You had one, — per I bambini, which translates to ‘for don’t lie to me. Then there’s Billy Bob Teeth. Yes, these children’. Yup, baby perfumes to make your baby are dentures that make you look like a hillsmell better than a baby. More babyish, if billy. This begs the eternal question — why? Why would you want to look like a you will. The mind boggles. Can you imagine hillbilly? But the inventor, a small town picking up your little bundle of joy, raising dentist, made millions of dollars. Check it he or she to your face, nuzzling against that out at I kid you not. How about the Flowbee? You know, the sweet skin and saying to yourself, ‘You know what this baby needs is some per- little vacuum hair-cutting machine?

But the afore-mentioned products acproducts we don’t need. But add it to the list or not, I am betting tually did make some people some money. I’m still wondering how much money there are people out there who will think baby perfume is the best idea ever. You baby perfume will make the already

wealthy Stefano Gabbana. Will it make him even richer? Or is baby perfume destined to join the list of products that should never have been invented? I speak of products like Man Candles, with scents of ‘Riding Mower’ and ‘Two by Four’. Never heard of them? Shocking. How about pickle-flavoured toothpaste or pizza-flavoured cookies? How about Paula Deen Butter-Flavoured Lip Balm? Wonder Sauna Hot Pants, anyone? Meatball-flavoured bubblegum? A non-stick frying pan with a denim jeans design. It exists, I swear. Also electric rubber duckies for your bath. Yes, electric. For the bath tub. I don’t see how anything could go wrong with that. Someone also once invented banana bling. It’s like a jewel-crusted sleeve you put over your banana so it... looks sparkly, I guess. There is also a chip made to look like the tip of a finger. You dip it and bite off your own finger. One of my personal faves I found on the quest for stupid products was lunch meat with clown faces formed into the meat with other coloured lunch meat. Sort of like Mortadella, except with the extra creepy factor. Really, the only thing that could make it better was if it smelled more like a baby.

Ice storm 3-0 over Hurricanes TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Kootenay Ice beat the road blues by shutting out the Lethbridge Hurricanes 3-0 on home ice on Saturday night at Western Financial Place. Ice goaltender Mackenzie Skapski earned his fourth career shutout by stopping 23 shots, while Levi Cable, Joey Leach and Brock Montgomery supplied the offence. “I’m feeling really good, especially bouncing back from that Red Deer game [a 6-2 loss],” said Ice goaltender Mackenzie Skapski. “It was a tougher game and it’s good to get back on track again.” Sam Reinhart extended his point streak to 16 games—the longest active run in the WHL—by assisting Cable’s goal in the second period. Reinhart’s streak has tallied 14 goals and 11 assists over the last 16 games. “Obviously there’s been a little individual success on this little run we’ve had, but more importantly, over the last 16 games, we’ve had quite a few wins,” said Reinhart. “We’re just looking forward to keeping that up, every game is so important, so we really need a big performance out of every guy, every game going down the last couple weeks here.” Kootenay has won 12 of the 16 games during Reinhart’s streak.


Lethbridge Hurricanes goaltender Ty Rimmer robs Kootenay Ice forward Jaedon Descheneau during WHL action at Western Financial Place on Saturday evening. The win also makes it eight in a row in their home barn for the Ice, which have another pair next weekend in front of the home crowd against Spokane and Moose Jaw. Special teams won the game for Kootenay, especially on the penalty kill, as the Ice shut out the Hurricanes on all six of their opportunities with the man advantage. On the other side of the coin, the Ice capitalized twice on three powerplay chances. Lethbridge goaltender Ty Rimmer made 26 saves for the loss. The two teams played each other to a draw during the opening period, but Montgomery

saved a sure goal when he got his stick tangled up with an opponent who had a wide open net. The Ice seemed to have some trouble establishing a rhythm in the first period, killing off three of Lethbridge’s six powerplays. “It was just too many penalties in the first and big kills by us and that really enabled us to get some momentum going into the second period and we were able to get some goals there and Skapper played great, said Reinhart.” The first goal came shorthanded, as Reinhart intercepted the puck at the Ice blueline

while on the penalty kill and turned up the ice. Streaking down the sideboards, he dished off the puck to Cable, who went top shelf on Rimmer. Four minutes later, on another man-advantage, captain Joey Leach took a pass from Luke Philp and blasted a slap shot into the back of the net. Montgomery got his late off an empty net goal as the Hurricanes pulled Rimmer to make it even strength while trying to kill off a late penalty. It was the first time Mike Simpson faced his former team since getting traded earlier in January.

“It was good, we had a few words, thought I’d have to drop the gloves and tune him up for all the times he pissed me off when we were rooming together,” joked Jon Martin, after the game. ICE NOTES: Kootenay is three points outside of a playoff spot behind the Medicine Hat Tigers in ninth place. Tanner Faith didn’t play against Lethbridge as he is out one to two weeks with an upper body injury. The team will be out at the skating area in Baker Park on Monday afternoon from 4-6 p.m. Anyone can bring a stick and a pair of skates to play some shinney with the team.

Ravens win Super Bowl, beat 49ers 34-31 ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW ORLEANS From blowout to blackout to shootout, Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens had just enough to survive one of the most electric Super Bowls ever. The outage flipped a switch for the San Francisco 49ers, but the Ravens used a last-gasp defensive stand to hold on Sunday night, 34-31. America’s biggest sporting event came to a half-hour standstill in the third quarter when most of the Superdome lights and the scoreboards went dark. By then, the Ravens had a

22-point lead. Everything changed after that, though, and the 49ers staged a sensational rally before Ray Lewis and Co. shut it down. But there were plenty of white-knuckle moments and the Ravens (14-6) had to make four stops inside their 7 at the end. For a Super Bowl with so many subplots, it almost had to end this way. Flacco’s arrival as a championship quarterback coincides with Lewis’ retirement - with a second Super Bowl ring no less. The win capped a sensational

month since the star linebacker announced he was leaving the game after 17 Hall of Fame-caliber years. The sibling rivalry between the coaching Harbaughs went to John, older than Jim by 15 months. “How could it be any other way? It’s never pretty. It’s never perfect. But it’s us,” John Harbaugh said. “It was us today.” At 4 hours, 14 minutes, it was the longest Super Bowl ever. Among the most thrilling, too. The loss of power delayed the game 34 minutes and left players

from both sides stretching and chatting with each other. It also cost Baltimore whatever momentum it built, and that was considerable after Jacoby Jones’ 108yard kickoff return and game MVP Flacco’s three touchdown passes made it 28-6. Back came San Francisco (13-5-1) in search of its sixth Lombardi Trophy in as many tries. Michael Crabtree’s 31-yard touchdown reception on which he broke two tackles made it 28-13. A couple minutes later, Frank Gore’s 6-yard run followed a 32-yard punt return by

Ted Ginn Jr., and the 49ers were within eight. Ray Rice’s fumble at his 24 led to David Akers’ 34-yard field goal, but Baltimore woke up for a long drive leading to rookie Justin Tucker’s 19-yard field goal. San Francisco wasn’t done challenging, though, and Colin Kaepernick’s 15-yard TD run, the longest for a quarterback in a Super Bowl, made it 31-29. A 2-point conversion pass failed when the Ravens blitzed. Tucker added a 38-yarder with 4:19 remaining, setting up the frantic finish.

Ghostriders edge Nitros 3-2 in Fernie TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Ghostriders kept climbing towards the top of the Eddie Mountain Division with a 3-2 decision over the Kimberley Dynamiters on Saturday night in Fernie. Dylan Robertson broke a tie in the third period to lift the ‘Riders to the win, as Fernie engineered a come from behind victory. Matthew Mitchell stood in net for the Dynamiters, making 32 saves in defeat, while Chris Solecki made 29 saves to earn the win for Fernie. The Nitros opened the scoring six minutes into the game on a goal from Dallin Wolf to take a first period lead.

Braeden Monk tied up the game in the second period, with a powerplay marker, before Kimberley pulled ahead on a goal from Tyson Klingspohn. R.T. Rice brought things even with four minutes to go in the middle period, but Robertson’s goal in the third period stood as the game-winner. Kimberley currently sits in third place in the division and can’t mathematically climb any higher. However, the Columbia Valley Rockies are 10 points behind with five games in hand and could potentially move up if the Nitros get into trouble going down the final regular season stretch.

Avalanche have tough home weekend TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The College of the Rockies volleyball squads had a tough weekend, as both the men’s and women’s teams struggled against the Capilano University Blues. The women’s Avs were blanked 3-0 in both matches, as their opponents held off a late push on Friday (17-25, 12-25, 23-25). The ladies came out firing the next day (22-25, 23-25, 19-25), but the Blues were able to weather the storm.

The men didn’t fare any better, winning a set, but dropping the match on Friday, while getting blanked 3-0 on Saturday. The Blues took the first two sets of the weekend’s first match (27-25, 25-14, 23-25, 25-14), before the men took one away by a spread of two points. However, the Blues roared back and won the fourth to take the match. Capilano swept the three sets on Saturday (25-16, 25-17, 25-21) to earn the win.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You might walk into a veil of confusion because someone is not being clear. This person does not totally understand the dynamics of the situation at hand. Communicate your message with more clarity, and you will get results. Tonight: Laugh off a recent misunderstanding. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You are full of questions. Have that long-overdue discussion. Your energy rarely is sporadic, though it could be at the moment. Swallowing your anger could be one of the causes. A money-making idea sounds good -- just do your research first. Tonight: Follow someone’s lead. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Confusion marks your communication. Assess where the mix-up might be. Excellent ideas could fall flat today. Have some sympathy for a boss or higher-up who might be having a similar experience. Your innate good nature draws in opportunities. Tonight:

Go with the moment. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You could be upset by what you see. Diving in and fixing the problem usually works, only right now the problem isn’t obvious. In fact, you could have a hard time zeroing in on the dynamics involved. Remain confident. Tonight: Touch base with someone at a distance. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Where others seem to be baffled, you will have a sense of direction. You might not be able to verbalize where this knowledge comes from. A friend who understands you very well encourages you to go down an unknown path. Trust your sixth sense. Tonight: With the gang. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Demands seem to appear out of nowhere. This issue could involve your home, personal life and/ or real estate. A parent could be involved. A partner or associate seems extremely whimsical with money, which causes you some concern. Tonight: Stay close to home. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

For Better or Worse

You’ll ask a lot of questions as to what is happening within your immediate circle. You want to get to the bottom of a problem. Approach issues creatively today. Do be careful when dealing with anything mechanical. News from a distance thrills you. Tonight: Keep it light and easy. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Your creativity surges, and you will cook up a great idea. The problem lies in the cost. Even if you do not anticipate a financial snafu, it still could happen. Use good sense with a child or new love interest. You do not want to go overboard. Tonight: Allow greater give-and-take. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You feel up to nearly any task. You might have an important matter to deal with, which could make you feel a little uneasy. Slow down. You can be successful doing so many different things. Lighten up the moment, and share more of your feelings. Tonight: All smiles. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You know precisely where you want to go with a conversation

that is a bit overdue. Listen carefully to news, and take time to digest what you are hearing. If you feel uncomfortable, don’t push at this moment. Caring flows in an unprecedented manner. Tonight: Go with a suggestion. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Confusion could result in a financial mistake. You can’t be careless with money right now. Focus on other matters, where success is more likely to greet you. Your smile will warm up an important friendship. Question a long-term commitment. Tonight: Where people are. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Your way of moving through problems usually is excellent, yet today, there could be a backfire. Let others voice their opinions. A decision that already was made could be hard to carry out. An element of confusion runs through your plans. Tonight: A must appearance.

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I have been with “John” for more than 10 years. We have children together. I have reached the point in my life that I wish to be married. I never wanted to be a girlfriend forever, and he knew this from the beginning. John says stupid things like, “If you did such-and-such, then I’d marry you.” I don’t believe marriage is about how much I can do for him. It’s about loving each other enough to commit. I love John, but he is unwilling to take that step, so I have told him if we are not married by next summer, he has to move out and let me get on with my life. I’m not trying to force him to the altar. It’s simply that if a legal commitment isn’t in the cards, I need to plan my future without him. The problem is, John tells me he will not leave. I don’t want things to get nasty by involving the authorities, but I want more out of my life than he does. Over the past few months, I have made myself completely miserable just thinking about all of this. Am I being unreasonable? Am I putting myself and my needs first by demanding he make a choice? -- Dazed and Confused Dear Dazed: No. John’s needs have come first for the past 10 years. But aside from that, you already may have a legal commitment in place. When a couple lives together as long as you have, it is recognized in many states as a common-law marriage. So, although you haven’t had a ceremony, you may, in fact, be legally tied. You also have children, and a separation will entail custody, visitation and child support arrangements, so you might consider counseling before disentangling yourself. Even something as simple as tossing him out of the house becomes a legal matter. Check the laws in your state regarding common-law marriage, and if necessary, get the assistance of an attorney. Dear Annie: We have a home in another state and allow family members and friends to vacation there. Recently, when we went to the house, we found several framed family photographs of our guests throughout the family room and bedroom. I think this is in poor taste and that our guests have overstepped their privileges. Should I say thank you and simply put the photos away? Or should I allow others to decorate my home? -- Concerned Dear Concerned: Well, this is certainly nervy. You are obviously such an accommodating host that your guests feel a little too much at home. We suggest returning the photographs to the owners, saying, “You must have left these at our house when you last stayed there. I know you would want them back so you can appreciate them in your own home.” Dear Annie: I am “S.W. from California,” the 88-year-old who had a falling out with his daughter. She and her husband cut off contact, so I cut them out of my will. After the letter appeared, I got a call from my son-in-law, who referred me to some online comments about your column. I was surprised by the negative response. It seems there is a generation gap. I was a Depression kid, and there was no help from the government. If you couldn’t pay for food, you starved. Having gone through such rough times, we wanted to make things easy for our kids, and we gave them everything. It only resulted in spoiling them, and they, in turn, spoiled the next generation. These kids expect everything to be given to them and show no respect for their parents. My generation always showed respect. Fortunately, as a result of your publishing my letter, my daughter contacted me, and we are now speaking again. She doesn’t see things my way, and I don’t see things her way, but we have agreed to disagree. -- S.W. from California Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Creative Canadians preserve iconic penny Michelle McQuigge Canadian Press

TORONTO — The country’s one-cent piece may be on the verge of extinction, but for creative Canadians seeking ways to make the most of the soon-to-be obsolete coin, the penny has already dropped. Humble pennies will still be in demand for artistic endeavours or cultural projects long after the smallest form of currency has disappeared from Canadian tills. That phase-out begins Monday when the Royal Canadian Mint officially stops distributing one-cent coins to Canada’s financial institutions. The move comes nearly a year

after Finance Minister Jim Flaherty announced the demise of the coin, whose production cost had come to exceed its monetary value. For some artists, however, the penny remains an item of considerable worth. Renee Gruszecki, a Halifax-based academic and archivist, has spent the past year making a living through a jewelry business devoted primarily to preserving the country’s stray cents. About 30,000 strategically sorted pennies fill Gruszecki’s home and eventually find their way into the accessories produced at Coin Coin Designs and Co. Gruszecki, a long-time collector of lucky pennies, believes her piec-

Rescuers search for workers in a quarry at L’Epiphanie, Que., on Tuesday, January 29, 2013. Quebec provincial police said the body of a man and woman were recovered on Feb. 2, 2013.

Police investigation launched after quarry landslide CANADIAN PRESS

L’EPIPHANIE, Que. — Quebec provincial police have launched an investigation into a deadly landslide at a quarry near Montreal. Gregory Gomez, a spokesman for the force, said officers will work on figuring out what exactly happened now that the recovery effort is over. The company that operated the quarry will be included in the investigation, Gomez said. ``We’ve done some analysis on the site and in the pit,’’ he said. ``We’re going to try to determine what happened, the sequence of events, and if there is criminal wrongdoing in this incident.’’

The province’s health and safety board will also be assisting with the case. The bodies of two workers — a woman and a man — were recovered on Saturday. They had been missing since Tuesday’s landslide at the gravel quarry in L’Epiphanie, Que., east of Montreal. The man has been identified as 54-year-old Daniel Brisebois. Police haven’t yet confirmed the identity of the woman. A third worker was rescued by a provincial police helicopter on Tuesday within hours of the collapse. Rescue efforts were put on hold during the week due to bad weather and concerns of another landslide.

es will help preserve a symbol that doubles as both an object of superstition and a Canadian icon. “The maple leaf is synonymous with everything Canadian. We all identify with it,’’ she said in a telephone interview. “Now it’s just no longer going to be present among us, so I’m saddened by that.’’ The Bank of Canada’s Currency Museum has already taken one step towards preserving the penny a little longer in the minds of Canadians. A mural consisting of nearly 16,000 one-cent pieces has been assembled at the museum to commemorate the coin’s history, said assistant curator Raewyn Passmore. The mosaic, which depicts a giant penny measuring about two square metres, is comprised of coins ranging from the lustrous to the tarnished. Passmore said the design was meant to honour a coin which, while lacking buying power now, enjoyed many decades of prominence since its first minting in 1858. “It was probably the most common coin in circulation at one point and probably the most useful for ordinary people,’’ she said. “We wanted to make a tribute to a sometimes overlooked coin.’’ The penny’s lack of present-day value was the impetus for its demise, a point that’s recently been driven home to Canadians hoping to use their discarded coins to raise money for charity. Jeff Golby, director of charity bank Chimp Fund, launched a publicity campaign shortly after the last penny was struck in an effort to convince Canadians to empty their pockets into the coffers of cashstrapped organizations.

The Royal Canadian Mint will no longer distribute pennies as of February 4, 2013. A massive penny party held in downtown Ottawa netted more than 120,000 cents, but starkly illustrated the coin’s economic shortcomings. Canadians who want to dispose of their spare change, Golby said, could find better uses for it than stopping by a charitable penny drive. “On some level you go, ‘OK, it can’t hurt,’ but when you factor in what it costs to charity . . . in time, in rolling costs, it’s not a cost-effective way for charities to really actually net decent money,’’ he said. The logistical challenges associated with the penny were one reason Flaherty cited for discontinuing the coin, adding the economic toll worked out to about $11 million a year. Retailers will be among the first to start phasing out the coin, and Canadians will see the effects almost immediately. The Federal Government has is-

sued guidelines urging store owners to start rounding prices to the nearest nickel for cash transactions. Electronic purchases will still be billed to the nearest cent. It may take months for the penny to completely disappear from circulation, news that Gruszecki suspects is welcome to more than just penny-wise entrepreneurs. Sales of her jewelry have spiked as the coin’s demise drew nearer, she said, adding Canadians’ disregard for the coin as a form of legal tender has not diminished their sense of its value. “I hope my jewelry will serve as a means for them to save a penny and keep the penny in circulation,’’ she said. “If you’re wearing it on a ring or you’re wearing it around your neck, you keep its visual presence certainly alive. If there can be an additional layer of meaning to it, all the better.’’

Groundhogs indicate spring just around the corner Will C ampbell Canadian Press

WIARTON, Ont. — Canada’s prognosticating rodents are split on whether the country is in for an early spring or six more weeks of winter. Wiarton Willie, Canada’s most celebrated of all its furry forecasters, is predicting an early spring, siding with Pennsylvania’s Punxsutawney Phil — generally regarded as the groundhog of record. Manitoba’s lesser known woodchuck, Winnipeg Willow, also failed to see her shadow when she emerged Saturday morning, meaning she believes spring is around the corner. That contrasted with Manitoba Merv — a gopher-like puppet at an interpretive centre north of Winnipeg — which predicted six more weeks of winter. Alberta’s Balzac Billy, which is really a person in a Richardson ground squirrel costume, predicted

a quick end to winter — giving a thumbs up to a cheering crowd when he couldn’t see his shadow in a Calgary garden centre parking lot. But Nova Scotia’s Shubenacadie Sam and Quebec’s Fred are calling for more cold weather. Folklore has it that if a groundhog sees its shadow on Groundhog Day it’ll flee back to its burrow, heralding six more weeks of winter, and if it doesn’t, it means spring’s just around the corner. Hundreds bundled up early Saturday to watch Willie emerge, many slipping on woodchuck masks or toting figurines of the famous rodent. Willie’s prognostication is the marquee moment of a three-day festival in his honour. Kristin Otten, who was crowned the festival’s queen, said she was a bit disappointed with the groundhog’s call. “I’m kind of sad about that be-

cause I really love the snow. But we’ll see what happens,’’ she said. Others suggested the forecast isn’t as important as the celebration itself. “We only get to do this once a year,’’ said Jerzy Bohatkiewicz, who has gone to the annual event for the last eight years. “There’s a reason for us to be here, to get out of bed at five in the morning, so we can find each other amongst this crowd here, find a little corner where we can all laugh and cheer and have fun —no matter what.’’ Shubenacadie Sam was the first out of his burrow to make his prediction to a worldwide audience via webcam. Fred was next with his forecast in Val d’Espoir, a community in the Gaspesie region. Willie weighed in just after 8 a.m. Eastern time, followed by Willow roughly an hour later.
