Dirtbag is coming March 8 and 9, Centre 64 and McKim Theatre CAROLYN GRANT

Dirtbag weekend in Kimberley will soon be upon us — an opportunity to view, and hear, the offerings of those who pursue the dirtbag lifestyle. The dirtbag philosophy, says John Haner of the Kimberley Volunteer Ski Patrol (one of the organizations Dirtbag will be raising funds for this year) is to make enough money as you have, then have fun, do what makes you happy. And the dirtbag spirit is strong in Kimberley, says one of the fest’s organizers, Alison Ko. It just made sense to support local volunteer groups. “The spirit of Kimberley is strong. We get so much support from the community. The ski hill is a huge piece of the community and the ski patrol is so much a part of the ski hill.” “The ski patrol are the guys in the red jackets,” Haner said. “The volunteer ski patrol are the original ski patrollers at he ski hill since back in the 1950s. They have hired people for ski patrol but on weekends, we are the ones you see.

advice on spending

Tourism Infrastructure Advisory Committee appointed CAROLYN GRANT

The Kimberley Tourism Infrastructure Advisory Committee, which will advise Tourism Kimberley on expenditure of Resort Municipality dollars for capital projects in the next five year period, has now been appointed. Appointed to the committee are Jesse Ferguson, Tod Caton and Tim Greiner from Tourism Kimberley, Schaun Goodeve from

the Chamber of Commerce, Ted Funston from the Kimberley Alpine Resort, Wendy Moore for Festivals and Events, Cam Dodd representing merchants, Andy Gray, Steve Brine, and Greg McCallum representing the recreation sector, and Noreen Shaw for Arts and Culture. Twelve people expressed interest for the public at large positions, a number City Council found positive. However, a couple of City Councillors

were not entirely in favour of the appointments. One, Bev Middlebrook, didn’t like the gender balance. “Out of 11 positions, only two were female,’ she said. “It would have been nice to have a female perspective in the recreation area.” It was pointed out that those selected came from those who applied, but Middlebrook said there was another woman who applied but was not chosen.

Coun. Darryl Oakley voted against the appointments. “The process is inequable and flawed,” he said. “It doesn’t represent the direction the City needs to go. Certain skill sets are required to steer the City in terms of cost recovery. I went through the list — who was selected, who was not. I’m disappointed.” Mayor Ron McRae pointed out that it was an advisory committee only. Council voted to accept the appointments.

Canada’s Alt-Country maestro will be making his way west, with stops in Cranbrook and Trail, later this spring. Corb Lund is described by music critics, as Americana, traditional country artist, alternative country artist, singer-songwriter and country- rock artist. Surprisingly, they all fit, and so do the titles of some of his most popular songs. Songs like, The Truck Got Stuck, Bible on the Dash, Devil’s Best Dress, I Wanna be in the Cavalry, Roughest Neck Around, Five Dollar Bill and many more. Born and raised in Southern Alberta, Corb Lund grew up on his family’s farm and ranch.

Corb Lund and the Hurtin’ Albertans will be playing Cranbrook in May. After high school, he moved out of the farmland and into the city to

study jazz guitar and bass in Edmonton. It was there he started a punk-metal band with some friends, called The Smalls. It was a far cry from the kind of music for which Lund is known for now, but The Smalls enjoyed over a decade of prominence selling over 35,000 records in Canada. When that group finally disbanded, Lund set off on his own to pursue a decidedly different style of music. He gathered together a group of fellow Albertans to round out his traditional country and western sound, and

named the group, The Hurtin’ Albertans. Since then, they have toured extensively, and have released a total of 7 albums. In 2009, the group inked a contract with New West Records, earning them a greater amount of attention and wider distribution. This proved to be excellent timing for the singer-songwriter’s budding career, as it was quickly followed by Lund winning the Americana Music Association’s Emerging Artist of the Year Award nomination in 2010. The honor of being recognized as a nominee by the AMA

went along nicely with Lund’s numerous Juno and Canadian Country Music Awards nominations. He won a Juno for Roots Traditional Album of the Year in 2006, and the Canadian Folk Music Award for English Songwriter of the Year in 2008. Corb Lund’s latest album,” Cabin Fever”, released in August of 2012, has been highly acclaimed, and features songs like, Cows Around, Gettin” Down the Mountain, Pour Em’ Kinda Strong, and 9 more tracks which will only add to the honor of being labelled “one of Canada’s most prestigious Country singers, and one of Alberta’s finest exports”. Corb Lund and the Hurtin’ Albertans ‘Cabin Fever” takes over Trail’s Charles Bailey Theatre on May 16th, and Cranbrooks Key City Theatre on May 17th. Showtimes are 7;30 p.m. and tickets for the event go on sale on Friday March 1st at the Charles Bailey Box office or by calling 1-866368-9669.

Ice show to feature Dads and Daughters March 8 at the Civic Centre For the Bulletin

Not the typical faces that represent North Star Skating Club? Well for this year’s ice show these men will surely be a hit! The Starskaters are thrilled to be showcasing the skating skills of not only themselves this year but also that of their Fathers. Coach Tamara has choreographed a Dad/ Daughter Act that will be performed on March 8 at NSSC’s annual ice show. You can show your support of these Fathers by sponsoring their efforts to perform. The Dad who receives the most pledges by February 28 will receive a “One night stay at Trickle Creek Lodge and a dinner at the Old Bauernhaus Restaurant”. NSSC would like to thank Trickle Creek Lodge and the Old Bauerhaus Restaurant for their support of these men with their donations. This great prize

will be sure to motivate these Dad’s to raise funds for NSSC. This year’s show will start at 6:30 pm at the Kimberley Civic Arena. There is no charge for admittance due to generous funding from Mark Creek Lions Club, R.W. Anderson Contracting Ltd, Falkins Insurance, RCMP Seedwatch Grant and Kimberley Vision Care. Thanks to these funders NSSC has been able to purchase a much needed curtain, lights and decorations to ensure a successful performance. Donations are always greatly accepted at the door and will be used to offer future skating programs to local children in Kimberley. This year NSSC has really expanded its Carnival. Spectators can expect performances by all its Club Skaters, guest performances by accomplished Figure Skaters from Fernie and Cranbrook and the Dad/ Daughter act that will surely draw a crowd of

supporting fans. KMH will be running a concession for the intermission. Tyler Crawford (voice of the Kimberley Dynamiters) will be the MC for the evening. So mark your calendars for March 8 and come out to enjoy local and East Kootenay talent as Canskaters and Figure Skaters perform at NSSC’s Show Case 2013.

From Page 1 “We like to be involved in the community. The dirtbag spirit is part of the ski patrol.” Dirtbag fest will also raise funds for the group hoping to add a whitewater feature to Mark Creek. The Dirtbag Fest concept has proven popular since its inception, and although it has missed a year here and there, it’s usually a sell out. It’s an opportunity to see what some truly amazing photographers and film-makers have been up to — and a lot of them live right here in Kimberley. It’s a chance to see stories on film, such as the Kimberley family who took a canoe trip from

Jasper to Tuktoyaktuk. Or a local man who walked out his front door and hiked — all the way to Rogers Pass. The festival has expanded this year. There will be the hugely popular film and photo night on Saturday, March 9 — an opportunity to see films and also the local slideshow. Organizers say they have been flooded with local entries for the community slideshow. “Local flavour is the core element of Dirtbag and locals have really stepped up this year,” Haner said. On Friday, March 8 at Centre 64, there will be a celebration of the spoken word at Centre 64. “Dirtbag is about sto-

Local NEWS Kimberley Health Care Auxiliary year in review

$57,079.76 raised in 2012 For the Bulletin

Because of community support and the hard work of the nearly 100 volunteers who contributed 14,854 hours of work, the Kimberley Health Care Auxiliary was able to give $57,079.76 back to the community in 2012. Major Health Care Auxiliary donations in 2012 included a Crash Cart for East Kootenay Regional Hospital, and another $30,000 to the EK Foundation for Health for hospital medical equipment. The Kimberley Special Care Home( The Pines) was given

$12,000 for the purchase of comfort and care items, including a hot food delivery system, 2 leather recliners and a vital signs monitor. Other donations were curling brooms and sliders for use by junior curlers to encourage their participation in the sport, four free public swims at the Aquatic Centre, and three Memorial benches placed along the Rails to Trails. Two scholarships of $1500 each were awarded to Selkirk graduates entering a medical-related field. The Kimberley Health Care Auxiliary is a member of the British Columbia Association of Health Care Auxiliaries, and was proud to host the

Area Conference in September, with visitors from Kelowna, Kaslo, Golden, Invermere, and Cranbrook . The delegates appreciated the generous contributions of Kimberley merchants who donated items for the Conference. Thank you merchants! The local Auxiliary operates a Thrift Store on 304th St in Marysville and on Howard Street in Kimberley, as well as a Medical Equipment Loan Cupboard located on the lower floor of the Health Care Centre on 4th Ave. New volunteers are always welcomeplease call Brenda at 250-427-2503 for more information.

Cranbrook approves cull of 30 deer

City not providing any more detail on decision


A second cull of up to 30 mule deer will be carried out in Cranbrook, the city announced on Thursday. Council made the decision “after much careful deliberation”, reads the statement released by corporate communications officer Chris Zettel. “Due to concerns around public safety raised both by the RCMP and council, the city will not at this time be providing any additional details surrounding the population reduction activities,” reads the statement. It refers to the population control as “reduction” in the urban deer population and says the measures will “focus on several key areas of the

community, based on complaints received both by the city and by the Conservation Officer Service.” The city was granted a permit from the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations in late 2012, it continues. However, it does not say when or where the cull will be carried out. Council and staff are not answering any questions about the statement nor speaking to the media. “The city will not at this time be providing any additional details surrounding the population reduction activities. The city will provide a comprehensive review to the public once these activities have been completed,” reads the statement. Yesterday, the B.C. Deer Protection Coalition took out a full-page advertisement in the Townsman, stating “Will Cranbrook kill deer this winter? Rumour says yes.” The advertisement

Colleen Bailey, a spokesperson for the Hu-

mane Treatment of Urban Wildlife, which is a member of the B.C. Deer Protection Coalition said the group is against the city’s decision. “We condemn the assertion that public safety is at risk if the city releases any details of the cull. We assert that this is simply being used as an excuse to conduct the entire opera-

Question of kill or cripple, court told BY C AM FORTEMS Kamloops Daily News Staff Reporter

Lifelong criminal Garry Shank described being given an AK-47 rifle and instructions to kill a drug rival in Cranbrook as payback for a recent shooting. Shank testified for a second day as a Crown witness in B.C. Supreme Court in the murder conspiracy trial of Lonnie Adams, Lorne Carry and Colin Correia. He told the court he was picked up in November 2009 in Calgary by Correia and Chad Munro, who had been recently shot by a rival in the East Kootenay drug trade. While on the road, Correia contacted Carry in Cranbrook, telling his friend he was bringing “two rabid dogs from Calgary,” Shank described. “It was basically retribution,” Shank said. “One of his (Correia’s friend) had just been shot. It was escalating. Cranbrook was their town.” Shank later signed on as a police agent and wore a recording device. But in his testimony Thursday he described

being on the run from police before that time, along with a friend, negotiating with Correia and Carry about the hit on their rival. “I asked if they were looking to have him crippled or killed — whether they wanted me to spray his legs and cripple him or cut him in half,” Shank said in response to questioning by Crown lawyer Ann Katrine Saettler. On the road from Calgary, Shank said Correia

and Munro stopped the truck in Jaffray, nearby Cranbrook, so the pair could show him Doug Mahon’s home, the layout of the rural property and the route they suggested he take to sneak up and kill the rival. Shank said he wanted $5,000 to cripple Mahon or $10,000 to kill him. He also wanted a cash advance, a vehicle and a week to learn Mahon’s habits.

Before Shank could commit the murder, however, he was arrested by RCMP, acting on a tip from an informant, in the trailer where Carry had temporarily set him up. He had fled from a Vancouver halfway house and was the subject of a Canada-wide warrant. With him was the AK-47 assault rifle he testified that Carry had supplied.

tion under the cover of secrecy. Opponents of the cull have simply exercised their democratic right to be part of an open and transparent decision making process and this right was removed by council when it held secret meetings and heard from deputants of its own choice,” said Bailey. “We will continue to reach out to the community to tell us where traps are set and we are committed to monitoring the traps during this cull period.” Last April, council approved a second cull of up to 50 deer in Cranbrook. However, Mayor Wayne Stetski told the Townsman in October that the second cull had been put on hold pending legal action over Invermere’s cull. “(Invermere) has been taken to court over the public involvement process that was used by council to make the decision to cull 100 deer in Invermere’s case. That pro-

cess that Invermere used is the same one that all of us used – in Cranbrook, Kimberley and Invermere. So if the court decides there was something inappropriate or perhaps incomplete on that public process, potentially it would impact the future around public processes leading up to whatever decisions councils make,” said Mayor Stetski at the time. The Invermere Deer Protection Society started a civil suit against the District of Invermere in February 2012, claiming the district did not do enough public consultation prior to decided to carry out a call. The court injunction halted the cull for much of February, but the society’s request to extend the injunction failed and eventually Invermere was able to cull just 19 deer before its permit to euthanize 100 deer expired. According to a March 2012 issue of the Inver-

mere Valley Echo, Columbia Valley RCMP laid charges in cases where traps were tampered with or deer released from traps during the Invermere cull. In May, the Supreme Court of B.C. gave permission for the society’s civil suit against the district to continue. That case is still before the court. A hearing was set to be held in January, but was delayed. Despite this legal action, public safety concerns have led the city to proceed with a second cull anyway. Devin Kasakoff, a spokesperson for the Invermere Deer Protection Society, is questioning why Cranbrook council changed its mind. “Why was the mayor worried about Invermere’s court case in October 2012 and not in February 2013? Nothing has changed. Our case is moving forward,” he said in a February 14 press release.

I did a column on cheese theft last year the crawl at the bottom of the screen read. Indeed conditions on the ship were not — yes, I know, I’m all over the big issues.

Two headlines immediately popped into my head — ‘Lord T’underin’ Cheeses’ and ‘What a Friend We Have in Cheeses’. I also wrote of the bewildered elk in northern BC who was romancing bovines. My headline of choice was, ‘Don’t Have a Cow, Man’. Did I use any of these? No. Not worth it. I managed to sneak by a ‘Joint Operations’ headline for a combined-detachment drug bust once. My esteemed colleague Barry Coulter has also had his headline ups and downs. He proved to be too cowardly to run his greatest headline ever (in his opinion)— “Venison Vidi Vici” (as in Julius Caesar) for a story on the deer cull. Other glorious puns, like the world has never seen, have been left on the cutting room floor, as they say, mostly out of fear of reprisals. But some he did print include ‘Burg’s Biggest Burger Burgled’ when the Burger King hamburger was stolen; and ‘Trout War Shows No Sign of Abating’. Hee hee. But for the most part, cute headlines bring you nothing but woe. Not everyone thinks you’re as funny as you do. I’m betting the folks at Carnival Cruises don’t think ‘Floating Petri Dish’ is a laugh riot. Carolyn Grant is editor of the Kimberley Daily Bulletin.

Opinion/Events Letters to the Editor

JGMRM confusion I am writing to clear up what seems to be some confusion over how the new Jumbo Glacier Mountain Resort Municipality (JGMRM) will participate in regional government. Those of us who will be on council have had informal discussions that will lead to the following protocol: the JGMRM appointee to the RDEK board will attend board meetings only at the express request of the RDEK Chair, and all costs associated with such attendance will be paid by the JGMRM. I had discussions about this protocol with members of the RDEK board before their recent vote not to pay costs. This same protocol will apply to the Regional Hospital Board. It is also worth noting that neither the resort developers nor the Minister favoured participation at the RDEK by the resort municipality in its early stages. Ministry staff advised that the Local Government Act requires that any new municipality have a seat on the regional district board. It is easy to focus on the unusual circumstances of a municipality being created in advance of residents. It would more useful to remember that the primary purpose of this special type of municipality is to ensure that the resort has been carefully designed and prepared for the arrival of those residents and guests, so that such a significant provincial tourism asset is well managed from the start and for the long term.

China/Japan clash I enjoy Gwynne Dyer’s columns, and I generally agree with his observations and reasoning. But in the case of the Chinese-Japanese clash over the East China Sea islands (January 29) I think Gwynne has missed the boat. In terms of finding a just solution to the matter I have chosen to look at the history of the 20th century. One needs to go back only 70 years to find arguments for the Japanese not to own the islands (the attack on Pearl Harbour in 1941, and the subsequent Japanese invasion of several countries). To my knowledge, the terrible atrocities carried out by the Japanese military have never been admitted by Japanese governments, and they have never sought to redress the grievances of those countries they occupied. Indeed, successive prime ministers of Japan have virtually paid homage to their own war dead, including several top military officers who had been found guilty of crimes against humanity. But a particular reason why China should have the islands dates back to the Japanese invasions of China in 1931 and 1937. These invasions were accompanied by mass executions, the deliberate bombing of the civilian population, the torture of citizens, the branding and raping of women. But the crescendo of Japanese brutality reached its height in 1937-38 with “the rape of Nanking.” It has been reported that “340,000 people were murdered and 80,000 women raped” during the course of Japanese occupation. This 14-year war against China took more than 30 million innocents. Surely this is now an opportunity for the Japanese to do what Germany did decades ago: admit to the terrible behaviours of its soldiery. Apologize to the world at large. And make at least a token attempt at re-

dress by withdrawing any claim to the East China Sea islands, thereby avoiding the possible havoc of yet another Sino-Japanese war. For more information, read The Rape of Nanking by James Yin, available in the Kimberley library. Peter Moody Kimberley

Election coming I would like to request that people of this area start to think about the upcoming Provincial election. I ask everybody these questions. Do you want to be led by a leader that has stood up and admitted his past mistakes regardless how long ago they took place. Or would you rather be led by a leader who continues to let her parties lawyers slither through the slime trying to explain how two people had 6 million dollars in legal fees paid by us the taxpayers notwithstanding the fact they were convicted? Would you rather be led by a leader whose party welcomes immigration as long as those people were protected by the valued rights we all enjoy as Canadians. Or would you rather be led by a leader who supports the “ temporary foreign worker “ philosophy which is all about servitude and more dollars for the already rich? Think of hundreds of Canadian miners that should be but are not not currently employed in northern B.C. Think of the conditions that those that are working are under. Is this the kind of Canada or B.C we want? Would you rather be led by a party who built and maintained an effective and economically profitable apprentiship system, or a party that dismantled that system and is now spending 15 million more of your tax dollars trying to convince you the system that now exists is effective? For those answers that make you fell better then I encourage you all to research the various parties positions and decide what kind of B.C you want your children and grand-children to inherit in the future .

Crown land Recreating on Crown land first attracted me, and has joyfully kept me here, for most of a lifetime, in our wonderful Kootenay country. I am not happy that apparently all Crown land that is close to Cranbrook, on the north, west, and south sides is being offered in a potential land settlement. This will give a monopoly, and form a noose around our city as to any future development by anyone except aboriginals. I strongly believe in equality for all, so I am absolutely astounded to hear that the proposed treaty settlement will require a vote of acceptance from aboriginals, but that no corresponding vote will be given to the rest of us! This is not democratic, is not acceptable, and must be changed. My property on the outskirts of Cranbrook, backs on to some of this Crown land where I currently hike, hunt, cut firewood, ride my quad, and hold family campfires. How much of that recreational activity is being secretly negotiated away from me? Voting to change present governments is only going to make things worse, for this undemocratic, secretive, treaty process was set up several years ago by the provincial NDP, and the federal Liberals, and their so called Bill of Rights, that enshrine so many wrongs!

Dogs in distress There are two dogs in Kimberley that are penned up in a small enclosure, walled with tarps. They are also chained and lying in dog feces. They never get exercised. There have been numerous complaints to the SPCA about the situation and yet, nothing is done. I myself have called the SPCA about that ridiculous situation. The first response was — did you know that they just had a baby. I frankly don’t care if they just had a baby, or an elephant for that matter. Those dogs have been deemed vicious by the local animal control officer as the dog previously jumped the fence to go after another dog. These dogs just need attention and exercise. It is our civic duty to ensure they get the home they deserve. Patti Biggs Kimberley

I would like to express my gratitude for the privileged lifestyle I am able to lead in this small part of the world. I hope the citizens of Kimberley recognize this privilege also. We are so used to being able to have ready access for all our outdoor activities in a 360 degree radius, that sometimes we forget to appreciate the efforts of others to contribute to this lifestyle. In particular, I am referring to our local golf courses. Bootleg and Trickle Creek Golf courses need to be recognized for the access privileges allowing us to walk on their paths, slide on their hills, and cross country ski on their fairways. It is also a great privilege to walk our dogs off leash on their property. This typeof access on golf properties is unprecedented with most other areas. Allowing this access is an example of exactly what Kimberley advocates as a reason to visit or live here. Please join me in expressing your gratitude by thanking the staff and showing the greatest respect for their property. Three cheers for Bootleg and Trickle Creek golf courses.

I would like to give recognition to a local business that gave us some outstanding service this past summer. My son and I were touring through southern B.C. on our motorcycles over the August long weekend. In spite of careful pre-trip inspections, his bike developed mechanical problems and we arrived in Cranbrook looking for a knowledgable bike dealer. We ended up doing much better than we hoped for — we met Bill Boswell and staff at Peak Performance. Their expertise and attentiveness to our problem went beyond our expectations. Through their efforts we were able to continue our long-anticipated trip, and our unplanned delay in Cranbrook proved to be a very positive experience. I believe the city of Cranbrook is privileged to have Peak Performance as part of its business community.

Dynamiters ready to open playoffs on the road TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Rockets took a beating in the Kimberley Civic Centre on Sunday night, but Nitro head coach Glenn Burgess doesn’t expect his playoff opponents to roll over so easily when the post-season begins in a few days. A lack of discipline sunk Golden, as the team gave up nine poweplay opportunities, including a five-minute major for a slash delivered after a Nitro goal was scored.

However, Kimberley was just as guilty when it came to occupying the sin bin, Burgess pointed out. “One thing we will have to do, is be disciplined,” said Burgess. “Discipline is huge against these guys, because they have a deadly powerplay.” The Nitros begin their post-season push in

Golden on Thursday and Friday for the first of two games on the road. The two teams travel down to Kimberley for their third game in as many nights for Game Three, with Game Four on Monday evening at the Civic Centre. Nitro captain Connor Kutzner scored once and earned two assists in the final regular-season matchup between the two teams on Sunday. “It feels pretty good,” said Kutzner. “It’s always good to get some confidence going into a playoff series. We knew tonight was going to be a rougher game to set the tone for playoffs, but it was good to go out there, match their intensity and win the game.” Burgess isn’t too concerned with the adversity of starting on the road, but admits the team will miss the home crowd and the larger ice surface in the Civic Centre. “It’s not going to be easy,” said Burgess. “We start up their in their barn, and they’re good in their barn. We got a taste of it though, and that’s what this team needs.”

Dynamiters down Rockets 8-5 TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

It was a playoff preview on Sunday evening as Jason Richter posted a hat trick and led the Nitros to an 8-5 victory over the Golden Rockets for their final regular season game in Kimberley. Tied up at 2-2 after one period, the Nitros added another pair of goals in the middle frame, and lit the goal lamp four times, while the Rockets notched a trio of markers in the final period. Richter had a fivepoint night, adding two assists to his hat trick, while Taylor McDowell also had a big night, with five helpers in the assists column. Nitro goaltender Jeremy Mousseau made 36 saves for the win. “Our guys battled hard enough to beat a good team,” said Nitros head coach Glenn Bur-

gess. “They did what they had to do, and there’s been lots of games where they haven’t done that, so it’s definitely a step forward.” Golden opened the scoring in the first period, when Keith Wake beat a screened Mousseau from the point on a Rocket powerplay. A minute later, the Nitros evened things up when Richter got his first of the evening, taking a feed from Sam Nigg on a odd man rush and beating Rockets’ stopper Cody Boeckman on the backhand. A minute after that, Isaac Schacher put the Nitros in the lead, scooping up a rebound in front of the net after the puck had bounced off the post. However, the Rockets struck back by the time the period ended, with Jacob Bergeron earning the tying goal.

The Nitros doubled up the lead in the second period, with Richter scoring on the powerplay, while Eric Buckley scored his first of two for the night. Black Roney scored early in the third period, but Dynamiter captain Connor Kutzner answered back within a minute to re-establish a two goal lead. “We just kind of started off slow in the third and you could kind of tell that they were going to score a goal,” said Kutzner, “and when they did, our line went out there and just tried to turn the tide. I got the puck in the corner and saw Buckley open in front of the net and I tried to pass it to him, but it went of a guy’s skate and into the net, so it was a lucky bounce, but it got the momentum back in our favour.” That seemed to gal-

minutes left in the contest. However, the Rockets managed to put a dent in their deficit and added a pair of late goals from Brad Orr and James Price to make it a final score of 8-5.

Sports Ice split weekend, close within a point of playoff race Tre vor Cr awley Sports Editor

The Kootenay Ice headed into Brandon looking for a harvest, but only came out with half of what they were looking for over the weekend. The Wheaties broke a third period tie on Friday to win 3-2, however the Ice bounced back the following night when Jon Martin scored the overtime winner to lift Kootenay to a 4-3 OT win. “I think we came out with more jump and more urgency in the second game, as compared to the first game,” said Ice assistant coach Chad Kletzel, on the difference between the two meetings. “We had had more guys playing the game we want to play.” Whether it was a hangover from the 16-

hour bus ride or not, the Ice came out a little flat in their opening matchup on Friday, as both teams managed to keep each other scoreless in the first. Brock Montgomery opened the scoring in the middle frame on the powerplay, but Jack Palmer tied it up for Brandon three minutes later. Ryan Pulock, a highly touted defensive prospect in this year’s NHL draft, broke the deadlock late in the frame for his 13th goal of the season. Austin Vetterl tied up the game six minutes into the final period, however, Jayce Hawryluk scored a late powerplay goal to give the Wheat Kings the lead and eventual win. Ice goaltender Mack-

enzie Skapski got the start, making 23 saves in defeat, while rookie goaltender Jordan Papirny got his first career WHL win for the Wheaties. It was a different result the next night, even if Brandon got a brief lead at the start. Pulock made it 1-0 with five minutes to go in the first period, however Montgomery scored his fourth goal in as many games, early in the second to even it up. Jon Martin and Kyle O’Connor both found the back of the net for the Ice by the halfway mark of the frame, but Nick Buonassisi made it a one-goal game by the end of the period. Marek Kalus scored a shorthanded marker in the final frame to tie up the game and send it into

overtime. Martin’s goal, with 1:17 left in the OT period, gave the Ice the first win of their three-game trip into Saskatchewan. Skapski earned the win with 24 saves, while Curtis Honey turned away a barrage of 38 shots for the Wheat Kings. The back-to-back nature of the schedule allowed the Ice coaching staff to make a few changes for Saturday’s game, but it was up to the players to step up to the task, said Kletzel. “Adjustments and that don’t really work unless you have everyone buying in and doing them,” Kletzel said. “That’s the main thing. Any system will work as long as everyone is doing it together as a five-man

unit and they’re committed. And we were more committed on the second night.” The win, coupled with Lethbridge losing to Prince George on Saturday night, puts the Ice one point behind the Hurricanes for the Eastern Conference’s last playoff spot. Kootenay heads into Swift Current for an afternoon meeting with the Broncos on Monday. “You’re aware of it, but I don’t think it’s a focus,” said Kletzel, of the playoff implications. “Your focus is on preparation and your day-today routine and being ready to play. We do a lot of discussion about taking care of your individual play, which leads into taking care of your team play.”

West beats East 143-138 in NBA All-Star game Brian Mahoney Associated Press

HOUSTON - Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and Kobe Bryant turned this All-Star game into L.A. story. Paul had 20 points, 15 assists and won MVP honours, Bryant blocked LeBron James’ comeback attempt, and the Western Conference beat the East 143-138 on Sunday night. Kevin Durant scored 30 points and Griffin finished with 19, joining his Clippers teammate, Paul, in creating Lob City deep in the heart of Texas. “You just want to play fast. I like to throw the lob. I like to see guys hit 3s,” Paul said. “When we’re out on the court with all that firepower, why wouldn’t you want to make passes? You’ve got KD filling one of the lanes, you’ve got Blake, Kobe on the wing. There’s nothing like it.” James scored 19 points but shot only 7 of 18, Bryant blocking two of his shots late, after

having no shooting troubles during the latter part of the season’s first half. Carmelo Anthony led the East with 26 points and 12 rebounds. “I think we played really good defence at the end of the game as a team,” Durant said. “Kobe was really going with the ball. It’s tough to stop LeBron, but he did his best. He was able to block a few of his shots. But CP did a really good job of keeping us in the game.” On Michael Jordan’s 50th birthday, the AllStars threw down plenty of jams reminiscent of MJ’s glory days. The first dunk of the game came 16 seconds in, Paul throwing a pass to Griffin as part of the West’s 7-0 start. The West led after each of the first three quarters, though was never ahead by more than eight points through three periods. They finally pushed it into double figures early in the fourth fu-

eled by former Oklahoma City teammates Russell Westbrook and James Harden, but couldn’t put it away until a late run behind the guys from the city of Los Angeles - who along with Lakers centre Dwight Howard gave Los Angeles all but one of the West’s starting spots. Paul hit two 3-pointers, Bryant made a layup, and his block of James led to Durant’s dunk that made it 136126. Griffin had one last forceful dunk to help close it out, throwing a

pass to himself off the backboard and climbing high in his neon green sneakers to slam it home and make it 142-134. Harden had 15 points in his home arena, where the sights of the game were on the floor and the sounds were at the rim - which shook repeatedly after thunderous dunks for most of the game before, as usual, players tried to make some stops down the stretch. Players’ sneakers were a variety of pastels and fluorescent colours that looked like they came right from Easter Sunday church, many clashing so badly with their multi-colored socks that they may as well have been created by spilling out random paint buckets. James and Dwyane Wade wore purple, and Griffin’s neon look was also sported by the usually not-so-loud Tim Duncan and Brook Lopez. But the NBA’s


high-flyers sure could leap in them. Durant slammed one down so hard at one point that he stumbled backward after landing, appearing woozy. He came in as the career leader in points per game with 28.3 and may have won a second straight MVP award if not for Paul’s big finish. The Bryant-James duel down the stretch was a good one between the two players who are most often compared to Jordan. “It was all in good spirit, man. It was just two guys that love to compete, love to go at it. So I had a lot of fun,” James said. Bryant finished with only nine points but had eight assists. Griffin shot 9 of 11 from the field and didn’t miss until trying to violently throw one down from a few feet away from the basket. Indiana’s Paul George scored 17 and Kyrie Irving had 15 for the East.

Milos Raonic wins third straight SAP Open title Josh Dubow Associated Press

SAN JOSE, Calif. Now that the final match has been played at the SAP Open, Canada’s Milos Raonic would like to take the court with him. The Thornhill, Ont., native became the first player in more than a half-century to win this tournament three straight times, beating Tommy Haas 6-4, 6-3 Sunday for the title in the final year of the Bay Area tournament. “I think roll up the court, put it in my bag and hopefully it doesn’t get lost on a flight,” Raonic said. Raonic has never lost in 12 matches in this event and became the first player in the Open era that began in 1968 to win this tournament three straight times and first overall since Tony Trabert did it from 195355. Raonic won the final tournament here in

similar fashion to his first two, using an overpowering serve to control the match. He fired a 144 mph ace on his first serve of the match and was never threatened on serve. He had 19 aces and finished the week facing just a single break point. Raonic wrapped up the match when Haas sent a backhand wide to lose serve for the third time in the match and then went into the players’ box to hug family and friends. Perhaps no one will miss this tournament as much as Raonic. Since coming here for the first time in 2010, he has never lost and has three of his four career titles in San Jose. But he won’t get another as the tournament that dates to 1889 is being moved to Memphis next year after the owners of the two events sold the higher-profile Memphis tournament to a group from Brazil.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) If you don’t accomplish what you want to do early on, you might find that it becomes more difficult as the day goes on. Others seem to interfere with your normal routine. View an obstacle that appears on your path as a sign to think carefully before continuing. Tonight: Talk to a friend. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Emphasize the role that others play in your life in order to manifest a goal. The additional responsibility you have shouldered in the past few weeks seems to pay off. If you’re wondering which way to go with a present situation, listen to feedback. Tonight: Balance your budget. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You’ll head into work feeling sure of yourself. If you want something done your way, you’ll have to take the lead. You might feel the need to start over, even if you don’t want to lose the work, as you continue to see problems arise with this project. Tonight: To the wee hours.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Stop, and try to take in what is going on behind the scenes. Your fatigue is apparent, and you know when you have had enough. You might want to ask someone to fill in for you. Be reasonable in how you handle an unruly child or loved one. Tonight: Head home early.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Your playfulness might become

For Better or Worse

tempered by the realization of how much you need to do. Detach and prioritize, and you’ll get more done than you thought possible. Recognize what is happening with an important relationship, and try to be more nurturing. Tonight: Make it easy. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 20) Your communication style seems to be transforming. You might not like everything that is being revealed right now. Use your ingenuity to solve these issues and more. Do not rush through the process for an answer. Take news with a grain of salt. Tonight: Easy works. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Approach a recurring situation differently. You might choose to be less verbal. Find out what the root of the problem is, and then work with others to fix it. As a result, you will have less to worry about. Tonight: Your optimism makes a big difference in your dealings. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHHH Realize what is happening within your immediate circle. Try to do something differently.

What has not worked in the past suddenly will. Rethink a situation, brainstorm with others and approach it in a new way. Tonight: Live it up. Enjoy catching up on a friend’s news. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH You have been a bundle of energy as of late. Suddenly, the need to slow down hits you. How you deal with a situation could change radically because of your needs. Make no definitive statement just yet. Your finances could factor into your thinking. Tonight: Do a little shopping. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Your way of dealing with a problem could change radically. You’ll observe others and see different ways of handling pressure and communication issues. If you like someone else’s style, you might want to consider adapting certain elements of it. Tonight: As you like it.

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: Our daughter, “Mattie,” is 42 years old. She has been married for 10 years and has two school-age children. Due to her husband’s work transfers, Mattie twice was left alone with the children for several months while she tried to sell the house and her husband moved to the new location. The first time it happened, things worked out OK, but the second time, Mattie started drinking quite heavily. We didn’t find out until she had seizures, lost a lot of weight and ended up in the hospital close to death with severe liver damage. She pulled out of it, but now we worry that she might be in the same situation. We visited her over the holidays and suspect she has started drinking again. She also seems very depressed. Her husband doesn’t seem to recognize the problem. As parents, do we get involved? If so, do we confront Mattie or talk to her husband? -- Terrified for Our Daughter Dear Terrified: Please don’t be afraid to speak to Mattie if you think she is drinking again. It is a serious matter, both physically and emotionally, and needs to be addressed. You also should speak to her husband. He may be doing more than you realize, or he may be in denial or completely oblivious. Contact Al-Anon ( for assistance and suggestions. Dear Annie: When my mother was dying of cancer, she chose to die at home and not at my “pious” sister’s house. My sister resented this and made only brief visits during Mom’s final days. The day the hospice nurse said Mom would probably die within hours, my sister stopped by and then left for a week’s planned vacation. We postponed the funeral until she returned, and she showed up to the visitation in a souvenir T-shirt. After the funeral, Sis, as executor, didn’t want my brother or me to go through Mom’s possessions. Instead, she had an auction, and we had to bid on closed boxes. Many of the things we know belonged to Mom did not show up, and somehow, my sister’s name got on the deed to the family farm. There has been no accounting of the income from the auction, and when we asked, Sis became angry. The final straw was that my mother wrote a personal letter to me but did not get around to mailing it. Sis found it, made copies and passed it out to everyone but me. I would like the original, but Sis says, “Finders, keepers.” Sis now wants us to get together and pretend there are no problems. This is putting my “Christian attitude” to the test. Should I turn a very bruised cheek and pretend all is well for the sake of family unity? -- Confused in Missouri Dear Missouri: Your sister certainly has been less than forthcoming, and the business with the personal letter is rather nasty. Did your mother have an attorney? If so, there should be an accounting of where the money went and what your sister was entitled to as executor. But you may need to sue in order to get the information, so decide what it’s worth to you. It is likely to cause a permanent estrangement, and you still may not get what you are hoping for: your sister’s remorse and an apology. Our condolences. Dear Annie: “Want To Do the Right Thing” wants to celebrate his parents’ 50th anniversary but can’t afford the restaurant and wants guests to pay for their own meals. We all want things we cannot afford. Most parents would not enjoy knowing their children are depriving themselves for a big party. Instead, arrange for a nice family photo that would be treasured. Then take your parents out to a lovely lunch or dinner. -- R. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Russia labours to replace windows smashed in meteor fall L aur a Mills Associated Press

CHELYABINSK, Russia — As a small army of people worked to replace acres of windows shattered by the enormous explosion from a meteor, many joked on Saturday about what had happened in this troubled pocket of Russia. One of the most popular jests: Residents of the meteor were terrified to see Chelyabinsk approaching. The fireball that streaked into the sky over this tough industrial city at about sunrise Friday was undeniably traumatic. Nearly 1,200 people were reported injured by the shock wave from the explosion, estimated to be as strong as 20 Hiroshima atomic bombs. But it also brought a sense of co-operation in a troubled region. Large numbers of volunteers came forward to help fix the damage caused by the explosion and many residents came together on the Internet — first to find out what happened and soon to make jokes. Chelyabinsk, nicknamed Tankograd because it produced the famed Soviet T-34 tanks, can be as grim as its backbone heavy industries. Long winters where temperatures routinely hit minus-30 Celsius add to a general dour mien, as do worries about dangerous facilities in the surrounding region. In 1957, a waste tank at the Mayak nuclear weapons plant in the

Municipal workers repair damaged electrical power circuit outside a zinc factory building with about 600 square metres of a roof collapsed after a meteorite exploded over in the Chelyabinsk region on Friday, Feb. 15, 2013. Chelyabinsk region exploded, contaminating 23,000 square kilometres and prompting authorities to evacuate 10,000 nearby residents. It is now Russia’s main nuclear waste disposal facility. A vast plant for disposing of chemical weapons lies 85 kilometres east of the city. For many, the meteor provided a reason to roll up their sleeves and get to work repairing the more than 4,000 buildings in the city and region where windows were shattered, or to provide other services. More than 24,000 people, including volunteers, have mobilized in the region to cover windows, gather warm clothes and food, and make other relief efforts, the regional governor’s office said. Gov. Mikhail Yurevich on Saturday said that damage from the high-altitude explosion is estimated at 1 billion rubles ($33 million). He promised to have all the broken windows replaced within a week.

Meteor catches Canadian astronaut off guard on space station Pe ter R akobowchuk Canadian Press

MONTREAL — The meteor that streaked across the sky above the Ural Mountains in Russia on Friday caught Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield off guard. Hadfield, who is aboard the International Space Station on a five-month visit, said he missed the big event from his vantage point in outer space. “We weren’t in a position to see that meteorite do all that damage in Russia,’’ he told University of Waterloo students

during a video link-up Friday. Canadian astronaut Jeremy Hansen, who joined students for the chat with Hadfield, tried to offer his own assurances. “This isn’t new news,’’ the rookie astronaut said. “The Earth is struck by objects all the time. In fact about 100 tonnes of debris hits our planet every day (and) most of it doesn’t pose a threat to us.’’ Phil Langill, an astronomer and University of Calgary physics professor, said the meteor “snuck in under the radar.’’ He added that to be able to

spot such a meteor beforehand, “you would have to be just really lucky.’’ “You have to have the right equipment looking in the right direction, at the right time, with the sun in the right angle, no clouds,’’ Langill said. He said space rocks like meteors are usually visible when they reflect sunlight, but a lot of them are dark. Langill also pointed out that, luckily, the Russian meteor made a long streak across the atmosphere and did not come straight down toward the

Earth. “The more air that it passes through, the more it’ll burn up in the air and the less of it will hit the ground, said Langill, who is also director of the Calgary-area Rothney Astrophysical Observatory. He added it could have been worse had the meteor slammed into the ground. “It’s hard to put a hard number on these things, but certainly a crater the size of a city block probably would have resulted,’’ Langill said, adding he wants to analyze the data.

MPs say it’s time to test blimps Stephanie Le vitz Canadian Press

OTTAWA — It’s time to rethink the blimp, a House of Commons committee suggests in a new report. Airships are often associated with the Hindenberg crash of the 1930s, and their development was overtaken by that of the airplane, reducing their use in recent years mostly to props in ad campaigns. But there’s room for certain kinds of them to play a new role in Canada, especially when it comes to reaching remote communities in the North, the transportation committee recommended in a recently released report. “Hybrid air vehicles may one day provide a superior solution, as they can travel over snowfall, frozen water or impenetrable terrain, and require no roads or rail installations to operate,’’ says the report.

The committee’s look at airships was part of a broader study examining more creative ways to address some of the shortfalls in Canada’s transportation sector. When it comes to airships, a number of barriers exist to putting them into more widespread use, the committee heard. Among them is a lack of infrastructure, trained personnel and licensing regimes, said Barry Prentice, a professor at the University of Manitoba and president of ISO Polar Airships, a research institute that promotes the use of the vehicles. Prentice is adamant the time to start developing those capabilities is now. “The problem we have in the North is not going away, climate change is not going away, and what are we going to do when we get to the point where the ice roads are not us-

able,’’ he said. “We certainly can’t afford to build gravel roads every place in the North and the airships are the most reasonable solution that we should be taking a hard look at.’’ In addition to helping northern communities access food and supplies, they could have military applications. The U.S. military was expected to spend about $1.3 billion last year to acquire and develop airships and related technology for both cargo and surveillance. Discovery Air Innovations told the committee that just to develop the vehicle they’d like to bring to Canada could cost $60 million to $80 million, but they are having difficulty obtaining support from banks or private companies that might be able to use one. The government is equally wary about putting in money. “As the committee does not

wish to put taxpayers’ money at risk by investing in a business that cannot attract private capital, it focused on the question of whether the operator of a hybrid air vehicle would have the opportunity to compete for federal shipping contracts,’’ the report said. So the committee has recommended a pilot project be launched via Public Works and Government Services to see whether the airships could work. “The technology needs testing to ensure reliability. If the government were to abandon existing transportation modes in favour of a new option that failed to work, urgently needed goods might not reach their destination,’’ the report said. The committee report does not obligate the government to pursue a particular course of action and the government has time to table its response.

Tacky Tourists come out for Heart & Stroke Fundraiser


Photos by Barry Coulter

he theme of “Tacky Tourist” drew a colourful mob of rinks to the rink. The 33rd annual fundraising curlathon for the Heart & Stroke Foundation of BC and Yukon took place Saturday, Feb. 16, at the Cranbrook Curling Club, a daylong party of good cheer and exciting curling action, though maybe a little confusing visually. See more later this week in the Cranbrook Daily Townsman.
