Tourism infrastructure funds
City seeks tourism projects Resort Municipality funding available for projects that enhance Kimberley’s tourism product and economy
C AROLYN GR ANT firstname.lastname@example.org
As a Resort Municipality, Kimberley is entitled to provincial funding earmarked specifically for tourism infrastructure projects. The funding, of which Kimberley receives an average of $85,000 per year, is based on the two per cent Additional Hotel Room Tax and the number of accommodation units a municipality contains. Perhaps the most visible example of a piece of tourism infrastructure developed with this funding is the new 18 hole putting course at the Kimberley Riverside Campground. Of the $85,000 available this year, $35,000 has yet to be allocated to any specific project. A call for submissions of
tourism infrastructure investment projects has gone out. Projects will be assessed by the new Tourism Infrastructure Advisory Committee. The projects can be multiyear, but must benefit Kimberley’s tourism economy. Projects must meet the following criteria: 1) The partner organization’s capacity to deliver results; 2) Dollars leveraged from other sources; and 3) Potential benefits to tourism sector. Proposals must be submitted by 4 p.m. MST on March 1, 2013, and should be no more than two pages long. Please submit proposals to: email@example.com or Attn: Kevin Wilson, Kimberley City Hall, 340 Spokane Street, Kimberley.

not easy being green
City takes steps to mitigate greenhouse gases C AROLYN GR ANT firstname.lastname@example.org
When Kimberley signed on to the Climate Action Charter several years ago, it was with the goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2012. Most, if not all, BC communities have now realized that becoming carbon neutral is unlikely. “I don’t think we’ll ever get to complete neutrality, but we are making progress” said City Councillor Don McCormick.
In 2012, Kimberley’s corporate emissions were 1508 tonnes. Rather than purchase offsets, Council opted to put the money in a reserve fund until a green project that benefits Kimberley directly can be identified. Reducing a City’s carbon footprint can be accomplished in all kinds of ways, from big projects like the Sun Mine to small ones like the incentive program for low flow toilets. Trees can be planted, trails developed to encourage less use of automobiles, parks
can be developed. The actions the City of Kimberley is taking were recently outlined in a report to Council by Planning Officer Kris Belanger. Council received the report last week. One of the measures the province is looking for is specific targets in a community’s Official Community Plan. Kimberley will be undertaking a comprehensive OCP review this year which will include strategies to reduce greenhouse gases.
In the meantime, the City is working on many different measures to reduce GHG. They include: • Continued support of the annual Green Building Conference and Trade Show. • Work on the Sun Mine will continue. • a Transit review has resulted in more weekly shuttles to Cranbrook. • Various water smart initiatives including the low flow toilet rebate.

Funding charity passes campaign goal United Way of Cranbrook and Kimberley received almost $123,000 in donations in 2012 Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff
After setting a campaign goal of $111,000 in 2012, the United Way of Cranbrook and Kimberley raised close to $123,000. “There was an increase in local workplace campaigns,” said Donna Brady Fields, executive director of United Way. Falkins Insurance and Canfor’s Canal Flats and Elko mills signed on to hold workplace campaigns for the United Way last year, Brady Fields explained. “Canfor made a huge difference in our campaign with a combined campaign totalling al-
most $20,000 and 80 per cent participation of staff,” she said. Workplace campaigns encourage staff to dedicate an amount of their choosing from each pay cheque to the United Way. “We recognize that donors are constantly bombarded with requests. Some causes are easily quantifiable. But we know the United Way addresses social issues that studies have shown if left unresolved create more difficult issues,” said Brady Fields. The United Way provides financial support for the following local agencies: Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cranbrook;
Bellies to Babies; the Cranbrook Boys and Girls Club; Cranbrook and Kimberley Daybreak programs; the F.W. Green Memorial Home; Kimberley Special Care Home; Cranbrook and District Restorative Justice; Cranbrook Hospice Society; the Hospice Society of the Columbia Valley; Cranbrook Society for Community Living; the East Kootenay PARTY program; and Options for Sexual Health. “The board of directors wishes to thank all of our generous donors who every year step up and help make a difference in our community,” said Brady Fields.

Conspiracy trial continues in Kamloops Police agent testimony continues BY C AM FORTEMS Kamloops Daily News Staff Reporter
Suffering heroin withdrawal and coming down from a drug high, a sick Garry Shank sat in a Cranbrook jail and contemplated whether to hang himself. The self-described “scumbag” fleeing parole had just been arrested by RCMP late in October 2009, in possession of an assault rifle. He was headed back to federal jail, sent there after a tip from an informant to police, who knew where he was. The only people who were supposed to know Shank and his partner had just arrived in Cranbrook were three men, plus their boss in the local drug trade, who had driven them there from Calgary in order to kill a rival. Someone had turned him in. At 30 years old, Shank testified he’d spent more than half his life doing crimes or in jail. He never worked at a legitimate job. “At that point I had a breakdown,” Shank testified Friday in the witness box in the murder conspiracy trial of Lonnie Adams, Lorne Carry and Colin Correia. “I said I was looking to talk to someone. I was crying, having a full-time breakdown. I was so ready to be done with this life.” Shank said he believed one of the three men on trial or Chad Munroe, who had been recently shot in Cranbrook by the rival drug group, had turned him in to police. “I toyed with the idea of hanging myself,” he said in answers to questions from Crown prosecutor Ann Katrine Saettler. “I toyed with all kinds of ideas. One that seemed the most reasonable was to work with the police.” Shank was soon talking with RCMP from the B.C. gang unit, both while in Cranbrook cells and after he was returned to Kent penitentiary.

Self-professed ‘scumbag’ says he contemplated suicide From Page 3 For the third day, Shank recounted his life of crime, agreement to kill Doug Mahon and then conversion to a police agent. The key Crown witness is heavily tattooed on the face, his shirt and tie appearing to obscure other tattoos that snake up his neck. Five months after his jailhouse breakdown, Shank signed an RCMP contract, agreeing to become an agent. This, he explained on the stand, was far more than an informant, who is paid a maximum of $200 at a time for information. As an agent, Shank would wear a recording device and be directed by RCMP “handlers” on a dayto-day basis. The initial reward offering was $25,000, half paid upon completion of the investigation and the other half on conclusion of any trials. He would also be

“I’d dedicated my whole life to being a scumbag. For 17 years I’d literally done this full time. To do this I was throwing it all away ‚every famiy member and friend I had would be gone with this decision.” Garry Shank
paid an income of $1,000 a week during the investigation. “I’d dedicated my whole life to being a scumbag,” Shank said. “For 17 years… I’d literally done this full time. To do this I was throwing it all away — every family member and friend I had would be gone with this decision.” Shank — who started the KRCC riot in 2005 by knocking out a guard with a kettle and starting a fire in the cell block — acknowledged for most of his life he viewed police with “hate.” Even as he was talking
City actions to mitigate GHG From Page 1 • The local building bylaw will be amended to include solar hot water ready requirements for new residential construction. • Further development of Kimberley’s trails and the addition of bike lanes on roads is planned. • There are plans to implement a pilot domestic water metering project. • The City will adopt a corporate climate action plan this year and establish a climate action reserve fund bylaw. • An energy audit of City Hall will be conducted. • Last year, a hot water on demand system for filling the Zamboni at the Marysville Arena was installed and this year, a new, efficient ice plant will be put it. • The City is also continuing with replacing T12 lights with more efficient T8 lights at all municipal facilities. • An air to air heat exchanger and dehumidification system was put in at the Aquatic Centre. • Municipal drivers have been trained in fuel efficient driver, and the City is committed to replacing all fleet vehicles with ‘right-size’ vehicles. • A leak detection program on the water mains will begin and water meters will be installed on all water mains. • The City will continue to plant trees and also continue the second phase of Mark Creek naturalization, with planting of native species.
with police on a daily basis before signing on to become an agent, however, Shank admitted to dealing drugs in Cranbrook. He also told Correia, who supplied him with cocaine to sell, that he was terminally ill from colon cancer — a lie he testified he’d used before with authorities, or any time he wanted to get out of a job. RCMP were forced to keep with that story of cancer. In order to explain to Correia Shank’s absence from Cranbrook, RCMP made a fake arrest booking in Kelowna and also gave
Shank an extensive tour of Kelowna General Hospital’s cancer centre. They also gave him $2,000 to pay back Correia, after he’d spent the money he was supposed to give back to the Cranbrook drug dealer after selling an ounce of cocaine. After the contract signing in March 2010, Shank undertook his first “scenario” — talking again with Correia and Carry about killing Mahon. Unlike five months earlier, this time Shank was working for police and wore a recording device. He testified they discussed at Carry’s home them paying him $10,000 to kill Mahon. “We wouldn’t need to talk about this again,” Shank said of his discussions with Correia and Carry. “We knew our roles.” The trial is expected to last three months.

The bull in culture’s china shop “A pox o’ your throat you bawling, blasphemous, incharitable dog.” Shakespeare Quite recently I had the rare pleasure of a short drive in the local countryside with a young woman. During our somewhat stilted conversation she told me that she loved Shakespeare’s plays and I had to inform her that I hated the man, his plays and his sonnets. As she sat there apparently appalled at my crass ignorance, I was reminded of a short scene in one of the Rowan Atkinson comedy series where the hero, Black Adder, actually meets the bard in an Elizabethan corridor and takes the opportunity to beat him up for the indignities he causes and has caused English school boys. As for ‘great Shakespearean actors’, to me they are just hams; they are incapable of acting. We, as kids in school, we told time after time, that Shakespeare was absolutely marvellous. Well, some of us, still conscious after an hour’s lesson, reckoned that Will might have been all right for folk in Queen Elizabeth’s era, but why was he foisted on us? And, as a local director once told me, “You don’t act in Shakespearean plays; you just stand there and say the lines.” So, while we’re on the topic of awful
actors, take a look at opera. While I was still a young man, I was lured to an opera by a lovely, young French girl. There, in a huge theatre with lots of other sufferers, all sitting, facing the same way and not enjoying themselves, I had a great time. I’d never before seen such a ridiculous display of over-acting and screeching. Despite the fact that the singers were using Italian and my companion was explaining everything in French, I didn’t ‘get it’. I didn’t do too well with the Peter French girl either. There Warland probably is a French word for ‘uncouth’. Mauvais gout, peut etre? In fact, many years after that evening, with an even more callous friend, we used to put on opera on the TV, turn off the sound, and, to his wife’s disgust, sing along. It would probably be wrong, cruel even, to blame my parents for the way I am. It is most likely the stubborn streak that I inherited from my mother, who had a weak heart, was told not to have children, and look what happened. The problem is: I cannot stand being told what I should like, be it Shakespeare, opera, ballet or art. Over the past half century or so I have been subjected to ballet. I’ve sat through performances in big London theatres and not been impressed by the leaps and pos-
turing. Whilst visiting Vancouver one year, I was dragged in to see a ballet company from New York. At the time, Paul Kershaw, here in Cranbrook, was directing students in the Broadway musical Anything Goes and the eight school girls that danced in that show were better co-ordinated. There was also a ballet performed at our community theatre and, of course, I was hauled along. For me, the best thing about that show was the fellow seated behind me who, during a ‘pas de deux’, kept yelling, “Where’s the corpse?”. He probably meant the ‘corps de ballet’, but I loved his mistake. Years ago some enthusiast brought in and displayed several paintings by the legendary Emily Carr, she who was supposed to be really good at totem poles and West Coast scenery. I was lured into the exhibition and there proclaimed loudly that I had never seen such amateurish, muddy painting. I wasn’t actually thrown out, but I am fairly big, bourgeois and stubborn. In the past, teachers tried hard to persuade me and other spotty youths that poetry was good for our souls. This persuasion was supposed to be accomplished by forcing us to learn whole books full of stuff that made absolutely no sense at all to soulless kids. After all these years I can still recite much of that drivel but, according to a very educated friend (with a soul) only the ‘jingly stuff’. I am so uncouth, and a plebeian to boot.

I read with disgust MLA MacDonald’s partisan and irresponsible remarks with regard to Kimberley’s flume application to the federal gas tax program. You will notice, I called it the “federal” program. The money comes from the federal government directly to the Union of BC Municipalities where a panel of five non-political people decide on what projects have the most merit. One of the five reps is a provincial bureaucrat. The Ministry of Community, Sport & Cultural Development provides technical analysis of infrastructure projects to the committee. Neither myself nor any other elected person sees the applications
or is provided any insight into the analysis of projects. I am not asked for my “opinion” because it is irrelevant to the technical determination. The provincial government is handed the list of successful projects as a fait ‘accompli. Mr. MacDonald continues his relentless and tiresome negative tirades, which seems to make him too busy to actually do the work of an MLA. Unlike BC Liberal candidate Doug Clovechok, Norm MacDonald has never darkened my Minister’s door in eight years to advocate for the Flume project or any other project in his Riding. I am not even the MLA for Kimberley but I feel so badly for Kimberley’s lack of representation, I
have brought millions to the community for various projects. I am sorry no federal gas tax money was awarded for the Flume project but it has zero to do with the BC Liberal government. Candidate Clovechok has requested that I ask UBCM and my technical staff if information can be shared to help Kimberley understand what it needs to do to strengthen its next federal gas tax application and I will comply with his request. Bill Bennett MLA, Kootenay East
On Prayer In his column of February 15, 2013, Reverend Yme
Woensdregt asks “What is prayer and does it really work?” I’m sure it does to some degree; it helps to clarify our thinking and to identify our priorities. Also, it can be comforting to feel that we have handed the problem to a higher power. But, when we ask for change, improvement for ourselves or for others, are we not questioning God’s competence? Being both omniscient and omnipotent, surely God would be already fully aware of our needs and desires. We must assume that everything is going according to a plan that cannot be changed despite our pleas. Que sera sera. Bud Abbott Cranbrook
B.C. gas boom is real, all right
hether Christy Clark’s government survives the May election or not, the natural gas “Prosperity Fund” idea floated in last week’s throne speech is a useful one. B.C. is poised to join Alberta in the upper rank of energy producing jurisdictions, with an expanding network of natural gas collection, refining and processing into liquid (LNG) for export. Clark’s pre-election throne speech proposed a resource fund similar to Alberta’s Heritage Fund that would be reserved for debt reduction and major projects, rather than spent on programs, which tends to happen under the political pressure of four-year election cycles. Opposition politicians and media commentators have dismissed this as a pre-election stunt. They note that the LNG industry in B.C. doesn’t exist yet, and may never produce the hundreds of billions of dollars projected over the next 30 years. I returned for a visit to B.C.’s northeast earlier this month, and I can tell you the gas boom is real. My parents homesteaded east of Dawson Creek near the Alberta border in 1962, and I recall when our farm was drilled for gas by Gulf Canada 40 years ago. Many more gas wells have been drilled since then, and country roads have been widened and numbered for industrial traffic. Hydraulic fracturing, already in use when our farm was drilled, has been combined with directional drilling to open up huge new supplies. A farming community
Artist’s rendering shows proposed liquefied natural gas processing and loading facility on Haisla reserve land near Kitimat. called Montney is the latest hot play, yielding not only shale gas but petroleum liquids, which are valuable for diluting heavy oil among other things. B.C. has never seen this kind of international investBC Views ment interest before. Initial Tom projects have Fletcher been joined by global players such as British Gas, and Mitsubishi, a key player in Japan’s replacement of its devastated nuclear power program. Spectra Energy, which operates one of North America’s biggest gas processing plants at Fort Nelson and has another one under construction nearby, has begun work on a third plant near Dawson Creek. Spectra and British Gas have also proposed the latest of several pipelines, to move all this gas to an LNG terminal at Prince Rupert. The Kiti-
mat-Prince Rupert region now has at least five proposed terminals, with investors including Shell, Chevron, ExxonMobil and state players from China and Korea. All this is happening as shale gas is developed across the United States as well. As with oil, Canada is a captive of the U.S. market, and the flood of new gas supply has the North American price at rock bottom. At least B.C. hopes it’s the bottom. Gas royalties passed forest income to the B.C. treasury many years ago, and now as the forest industry struggles to recover, the province faces tumbling revenues from gas. Why would B.C.’s shale gas be seen as a priority for new global investment in LNG? For one thing, we’re a stable democratic country with a mature industry and competent regulation. Secondly, the shipping advantage of the Kitimat and

Prince Rupert ports to the Pacific Rim has finally been recognized internationally, as coal, forest products, grain and container traffic has climbed in recent years. B.C. has another advantage that appears to be increasingly important. The shale gas deposits are deep, under a kilometre or more of solid rock, and most are in remote, sparsely inhabited locations. That adds cost to the pipeline system, but it has a benefit. At the beginning of the year I predicted that the international protest movement that dishonestly targets Alberta oil would soon turn to demonizing natural gas. That pseudo-scientific attack has begun, right here in B.C. I’ll have more on that in a subsequent column. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com

Shyptika loses heartbreaker in senior curling final TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor
The Shypitka rink lost a close game in the B.C. senior men’s curling championship final over the weekend in Trail, losing a 5-2 decision to a team headed by Craig Lepine out of Langley. The two teams were tied up at 2-2 going into the ninth end, however, Lepine managed to score a devastating triple, which ended the game.
“The team was really happy with what we did, and the way they look at it, is that we can win a whole bunch of these things. They really think this is just the beginning of something.” Tom Shypitka “My last rock, I was trying to play a double, to play two, buried, to steal possibly two points that end,” said Tom Shypitka, “but my rock over-curled about an inch, inch and a half, and left him an easy shot for three—and I didn’t really see the possibility of that even happening.” It was a tough loss for the team to swallow, after playing to a respectable record of five wins and
two losses in the round robin. Cranbrook’s Shypitka skipped the squad, with Nelson’s Fred Thomson as third, Trail’s Don Freschi as second and Fruitvale’s Bill King as lead. Team Shypitka’s round robin record pitted them against Myron Nichol, a team from the host club in Trail, in the semifinal, but the Cranbrook skip prevailed with a 8-4 win that put his team into the championship game. Lepine’s six wins and one loss over the round robin was good enough to give him an automatic berth into the final. “They had last rock advantage going into the game, and they used it pretty wisely, played pretty defensively the whole game,” said Shypitka. “They didn’t really give us a chance to get too aggressive; I think they wanted to play it that way.” This was Shypitka’s first crack at the provincial curling title in the senior level, but he’s already envisioning many more runs with his current teammates in the coming years. “The team was really happy with what we did and the way they look at it, is that we can win a whole bunch of these things,” Shypitka said. “They really think this is just the beginning of something.”

FIGHTING FOR RESPECT: The Cranbrook Eagles Boxing Club headed south of the border over the weekend with two fighters, as Dylan Clark and Shannon Ryan took on some American opponents in Kalispell. Clark lost his bout by decision to Koby Moreno, a boxer out of Butte, Montana, while Ryan won hers with a unanimous decision over Savanna Riggles, who fights out of the Flathead Boxing Club. Ryan previously defeated Riggles in her first-ever fight in Cranbrook a few months ago, and remains undefeated in her boxing career.

Ice beat Broncos, move into eighth place TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor
Jaedon Descheneau posted his first career WHL hat trick and led the Kootenay Ice to a 5-2 win over the Swift Current Broncos for the team’s final road trip into Saskatchewan. The win leapfrogged the Ice into eighth place, surpassing the Lethbridge Hurricanes and into the Eastern Conference’s final playoff spot. Levi Cable and Zach McPhee scored the other goals for Kootenay, while Adam Lowry
responded with a pair for Swift Current. Ice goaltender Mackenzie Skapski made 23 saves for the win, while Eetu Laurikainen made 20 saves in defeat for the Broncos. Descheneau’s production over the trip tallied up to four goals in three games, as he scored in the first matchup agains the Wheat Kings last Friday. “He played really well,” said Ice assistant coach Chad Kletzel, on Monday afternoon from Swift Current. “I think
Sell some some tools Sell tools getsome bigger box Sell tools ororget aa bigger box or get a bigger box
his linemates, Reinhart and Martin played well, and the deeper guys we had out there, and he just created ice for himself and got to the net and put three in.” Special teams was a factor, as Kootenay converted twice on the powerplay—both times by Descheneau—in five opportunities. They also shut out the Broncos and killed off only two penalties throughout the game. “We took advantage of our power plays and we’ve created some chances in other games, but not capitalized on, and we capitalized on two this afternoon,” said Kletzel. “Our penalty kill, we did a good job of minimizing their chances, and when they did get a couple, Mackenzie Skapski did a good job of making saves.” It was a big start for Kooteany, which jumped out of the gate and scored within seven minutes, when Cable got his 10th marker of the season. Descheneau got his first of the night a few minutes later on a pow-
erplay, while Reese Scarlett served a slashing penalty. Twenty nine seconds into the second period, Adam Lowry took advantage of mismanagement of the puck in Kootenay’s zone and scored to cut the deficit in half.
However, McPhee restored the two-goal lead at the halfway mark of the frame, scoring on a scramble in front of the crease, with Laurikainen down on the ice. In the third period, Skapski made a big save on a shorthanded oddman rush, but then Descheneau picked up the loose puck and went to work. The speedy forward managed to weave through the Swift Current defence and creat-
ed a breakaway for himself, which ended with the puck in the net. Lowry was the recipient of a backdoor play late in the frame for his second goal, but Descheneau notched his hat trick with an empty netter with 90 seconds remaining in the game. Kootenay, while in the middle of an 11game win streak on home ice, have struggled on the road, with an 11-17-1-0 record outside of Western Financial Place. However, collecting four out of a possible six points with a split record against Brandon isn’t bad for this last road trip, however, they’ll need to keep up their winning ways in order to keep their playoff hopes alive. “The game today, we feel pretty good about our effort, but still, in Brandon, I think we let some opportunities slide through our fingers,” said Kletzel, “but us ending this trip here in Swift Current the way we did is positive and we’ll keep moving forward.”

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You have a way with words that is clear and concise. Right now, whether confusion lies on your side or someone else’s, do your best to clear it up.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You might have made an error financially -- or maybe someone else has, yet you’re the one who has to deal with it. Don’t turn down someone’s offer to help. Once your finances are back in order, you can make that purchase you’ve been eyeing. Tonight: Treat yourself on the way home. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Go full speed ahead. Don’t worry about the outcome of a situation. Rethink a personal matter involving a child or a new friend. Clearly there is a lot of caring between the two of you. If a misunderstanding occurs, don’t take it personally. Tonight: All smiles.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) You are able to make a difference, and you will do your best to make someone feel more comfortable. Don’t worry so much about the long-term implications of a situation, as it might not be the best time to clear the air. Tonight: Get a little extra R and R. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Listen to news with a touch of cynicism. You might sense that someone has distorted the story or left out an important fact. Show interest and ask questions. Others appreciate your attention. A meeting takes a positive turn, which leads to success. Tonight: Find your friends. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Others will look to you to take the lead, so do so.

Your creativity and gentleness might seem like a ploy to some, but that is who you really are. Tonight: Watch someone open up. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Work with individuals rather than groups, and you will be happier with the results. You might need to sort out some recent confusion.

On some level, this experience could be important. Tonight: Defer, defer, defer. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Focus on each task on your to-do list, and work toward meeting your goals. Your ability to move through a problem marks your
interactions. Others trust you to get the job done. Understand what your expectations are from a certain situation. Tonight: Lighten up and relax. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) The unexpected occurs, and you might profit from the outcome of handling it the way you want. Others might take a little while to regroup. If you are wondering what’s going on, try to walk in their shoes. You are in the mood to overindulge. Tonight: Ever playful. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Stay close to home. You might want to reconsider an investment involving real estate or your domestic life. Investigate and discuss different courses of action with a family member or roommate.

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: Several years ago, I stayed with my aunt and uncle for a week. My aunt sent me down to the basement to tell my uncle to come upstairs for dinner. When I turned the corner, I caught him pulling up his pants in front of the computer screen. He asked me not to tell my aunt, and I didn’t. During my time there, he did several other things that made me uncomfortable. He asked me personal questions about women’s bodies, and one time when I was alone with him, he hugged me from behind, pushing himself against me. Eventually, I told my parents about it. Although they believed me, I don’t think they ever said anything to my aunt and uncle. So I made my own rules about how close to get to him when we visited. The reason I’m writing is because I have two younger sisters, both teenagers, and I have noticed my uncle looking at them when we visit. Even more troubling, my uncle has two young granddaughters who visit on a regular basis. While I don’t like to think he’d do anything to them, my aunt and uncle often babysit for the girls, so he has regular opportunities to be alone with them. The situation worries me, but I don’t know what to do. I’m pretty sure neither my aunt nor my adult cousins have any idea what’s going on. My parents aren’t eager to create a rift, and the grandkids really love their grandpa. But I would feel awful if I later learned he had abused these kids. If my parents don’t address the situation, should I tell my aunt? My cousins? -- Don’t Want It To Happen Again Dear Don’t Want: That hug from behind was a type of molestation. Your uncle isn’t likely to change his behavior on his own, so it is important that the relatives be informed and the younger children protected. Tell your parents that if they are unwilling to handle this, you will talk to your sisters and adult cousins. Your cousins may not believe that their father would harm their kids, and they may be angry with you, but they should know nonetheless. Dear Annie: Like “Worried and Confused in Calif.,” I am also turned off by a dear friend who allows her dog to eat off of her plates and slurp from the same glass. If it were only in her own home, it wouldn’t bother me too much. But “Beth” brings her dog to my house and does the same thing. It is very annoying. Beth is wonderfully generous, kind and ethical. I cannot think of a way to tell her without hurting her. Do you have any suggestions? -Love the Friend and Her Dog, But Dear But: You have already given Beth the impression that you don’t mind, so it will require telling her directly that she either not bring her dog, or not allow the dog to lick the plates. You can be gentle about it, saying you’ve become more concerned about germs lately and would prefer that the dog eat from a dish you’ve supplied for him instead of off of her plate. You might have to remind her a few times, but if she’s as generous, kind and ethical as you say, she will comply. Dear Annie: You often recommend grief counseling for readers whose loved ones have died, and you say to check with their local hospital. I’d like to suggest an alternative. Not all hospitals offer grief counseling, except in the immediate aftermath of a death. But hospices throughout the country offer bereavement support, and the vast majority of them serve the entire community, often at no cost. Please encourage anyone who is grieving to explore what is offered in their community through local hospices. -- Loyal Reader Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Watkins, Fredrick George May 4, 1945 February 7, 2013
Fred has been called home to Glory to be with his Lord and Savior. He leaves behind his beloved wife and soul mate of 47 years, Margie. Fred will be lovingly remembered by his children Leisa (Darcy), Kevin (Andrea) and Alyson (Jeff). Grandad was deeply loved and will be greatly missed by his grandchildren, Matthew, Joshua, Bronwen, Caleb, Addie, Brandon, Eli and Conner. Fred will also be missed by his siblings: Earl (Julia), Margaret, Kathryn (George), Sheila, and Gordon and numerous nieces and nephews. Fred was born in Regina, SK to Dr. Robert and Gertrude Watkins and at an early age moved to Kimberley BC. Fred and Margie were married in 1966 and spent most of their years raising their children and serving the Lord in Kimberley. Fred had a close walk with Jesus and a deep desire to share the Gospel with others. Celebration of life to be held Saturday, February 23, 2012 at 1:00 P.M. at the Kimberley Fellowship Baptist Church, 395 Marsden St. Kimberley, BC. The family would like to express their deepest gratitude for the love and support shown from the many wonderful friends and family in the USA and Kimberley BC.
Judy was born on May 24, 1946 in Cranbrook where she was raised and she completed her early education. Judy then attended the school of nursing at Vancouver General Hospital where she completed her studies and became a Registered Nurse. Judy and Gary were married in 1966 and lived in Prince Rupert and Vancouver before returning to Cranbrook in 1968. Judy worked at the Cranbrook Hospital from 1968 to 2000 until being diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis. She then went on to long term disability until retirement in 2006. Judy worked in many different areas of nursing during her career including general duty, critical care, emergency, infection control, education & eventually nurse manager of medical/paediatrics on 3rd floor. Judy enjoyed travelling to various places including Hawaii and Europe. Her main enjoyment in her later years were her grandchildren, Aiden & Sophie and her mini Dachshund’s Fritz & Oke. She got great joy from researching genealogy and attending Kootenay Ice games where she could visit with friends. The family would like to thank Dr. K. Wentworth, Dr. E. Sawatsky and all the staff at East Kootenay Regional Hospital for the care and compassion that they showed Judy during her illness. Judy is survived by her husband Gary of 46 years; daughter Lara (Tony) Billmark; grandchildren Aiden & Sophie; son Todd (Jane) Billmark; brother Bob (Becky) MacKay, sister Darlene (Rocco) Angelozzi; sister-in-law Eleanor Skailes and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents William W. and Vivian C. MacKay. A memorial service for Judy will be held on Thursday, February 21, 2013 at 2:00 pm at McPherson’s Funeral Chapel in Cranbrook.

NEWS Wildlife Act changes create hunting licences for young adults and beginners Townsman Staff
Young people aged 14 to 17 will have greater opportunities to try hunting under new government regulations announced last week. Regulatory amendments to the Wildlife Act will make hunting more accessible to youth and first-time hunters. Under the amendments, the Youth Hunting License has been expanded to make it available for youth aged between 10 and 17 inclusive. Until last week, the age range for the Youth (or junior) Hunting License was 10 to 13 years. Now young adults between 14 and 17 will be eligible. What’s more, the Wildlife Act
now includes a new Initiation Hunting License, a mentoring license that means people aged 18 and older who have not held a hunting licence in B.C. before can try out hunting with a one-year, one-time-only license. “Hunting will always be an integral part of the social fabric of British Columbia and these changes will help introduce a new generation of outdoor enthusiasts to this tradition,” said Steve Thomson, Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. “The B.C.Wildlife Federation and our members are pleased to see the implementation of the expanded Youth Hunting Licence and new Initiation Hunting Li-
cence. These changes will provide increased opportunities for youth to try hunting for the first time and will give experienced hunters a chance to foster responsible hunting and appreciation for wildlife and conservation in British Columbia,” said Bill Bosch, president of the B.C. Wildlife Federation. Hunting, trapping, angling and wildlife viewing are collectively worth about $1.3 billion to the province’s economy. The government is introducing the new Initiation Hunting Licence at $19 ($15 licence fee plus $4 Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation surcharge). The cost of the Youth Hunting Licence is still only $7.
