The sweet smell of success — and popcorn —was in the air at the Kimberley Winter Market, held up at the Kimberley Conference and Athlete Training Centre for Alberta Family Day. Organized by the Kimberley Chamber of Commerce, the idea was to capture some of the tourist crowd at the ski hill this past weekend and show them what Kimberley business has to offer. Above, Kootenay Kettle Corn tempts tourists. See more on Page 3.

The victim was recovered from beneath the snow but was unresponsive, he said. “This male was immediately flown to Invermere Hospital by RK Heli ski helicopter, where attempts to revive him failed,’’ Shehovac said. The man’s name was not released. The skiers — all from Germany — were on their sixth run of the day when the slide occurred.

community snapshot Kimberley Chamber Winter Market C AROLYN GR ANT editor@dailybulletin.ca

The Kimberley Chamber of Commerce hosted a very successful Winter Market at the Kimberley Conference and Athlete Training Centre this past Sunday. The idea was to take advantage of the crowds in to ski at the Kimberley Alpine Resort for Alberta Family Day weekend, and take advantage they did. Grant Sharam, Manager of the Conference Centre says that there were 60 businesses and organizations exhibiting, and a steady stream of interested people going through. “We had great crowds,” he said. “It was very well attended.” Given that attendance, Sharam says vendors were already asking if it would become an annual event. “There is already interest in doing again next year,” he said. “It was organized by the Kimberley Chamber and they did a great job.”

The Weather Network 2013

From page 1 The weather was good and all the skiers had been trained to use safety beacons before heading out. “Assistance by the guide resulted in the quick recovery of the one person that was buried and survived,’’ RCMP said. The B.C. Coroners Service is investigating and the cause of death was not immediately known. Shehovac said the man’s friends helped

police notify next of kin in Germany. The slide was described to police as 150 meters wide, and approximately 300 metres down the mountainside. There was no answer at RK Heliski on Tuesday. Prior to the slide, photos were posted on the company’s website showing a co-ed group of skiers zig-zagging through fresh powder under sunny skies. The website reported excellent conditions for the

group skiing glaciers and trees. The website said RK, which is based at Panorama Mountain Village just outside Invermere, B.C., has been in operation for 43 winters. The Canadian Avalanche Association’s forecast for the Purcell Mountains on Monday said the risk was considerable in the alpine and the treeline, and moderate below the treeline. While there have been dozens of slides in B.C. this winter that

have involved skiers and other backcountry users, the association reports only one previous fatality in October at a mine surveyor’s camp near Stewart, B.C., near the Alaska border. Another man was able to escape the slide and was not hurt. Avalanche fatalities have decreased sharply since the winter of 20082009, when 24 avalanche deaths were recorded in B.C. and Alberta. Nineteen of those fatalities were snowmo-

bilers — eight of them killed in a single incident days after Christmas. Mary Clayton, spokeswoman for the Canadian Avalanche Centre, said a stable snowpack this year may be one of the factors in the fewer number of avalanche deaths this year. “The 10-year average in Canada is 14 deaths from avalanches every year. The last three years has been under that and this year there are only two so far. But winter’s not over yet.’’

Morrow to open slopes for Hope From page 1 You then have all day to accomplish your goal of skiing the height of Mount Everest. That works out to be 16 passes of the main run. You can participate individually or in groups of up to four people, allowing you to split the distance between your friends, family or coworkers. The event will close with many prizes being awarded including those for the top fundraisers (team and individual).

So far, planning is going well, says event coordinator Liana Shaw. “Teams have registered and funds raised so far total $5019, but we need to boost the fund raising! “The first 20 people to register on line have access to free lift tickets, courtesy of the Kimberley Alpine Resort. After that all lift tickets will be half price. again thanks to the support of Resort of the Canadian Rockies (RCR).” There will be entertain-

ment all day at the base and a fundraiser for Jenna Homeniuk at the closing ceremonies. The Chop your Locks fundraiser for Kimberley cancer patient Jenna Homeniuk is teaming with Slopes for Hope as well. “We are looking for three students who want to participate in chopping their locks for Jenna Homeniuk during our closing ceremonies,” Shaw said. The purpose of Slopes for Hope is to raise funds to as-

sist the Canadian Cancer Society in the pursuit of their mission – the eradication of cancer and enhancement of the quality of life for those living with cancer.

Friends of Burma volunteer honoured SALLY MACDONALD Townsman Staff

A dedicated Cranbrook volunteer has been nominated for a prestigious national award. Barb Ryeburn, a founding member for East Kootenay Friends of Burma, has been nominated for the Paul Yuzyk Award for Multiculturalism. “It’s quite an honour,” said Ryeburn. “I don’t think it’s just for me, I think it’s for everyone. “Ever since I’ve lived here I’ve been blown away by how many people want to get involved.” The nomination was put forward by Ryeburn’s partners in Friends of Burma, which works to sponsor refugees from the world’s most troubled locations to escape to Canada. “She volunteers thousands of hours every year to settle refugees into the community,” said Friends of Burma’s Shauna Jiminez. “She has taken refugees into her home, she has spent thousands of volunteer hours referring them to services, taking them to services, advocating for services, and putting those services in place. It often involves hours of paperwork, hours on the phone, hours of driving, all out of her own expense money and all as a volunteer.” Since starting Friends of Burma in 1997, Ryeburn has helped close to 40 refugees come to Canada. Some have lived with Ryeburn, her husband Kim Eaton, and three children Maya, 22, Lukas, 19, and Simon, 17.

“My kids grew up with people from Ghana and India and Indonesia. I thought that was a great experience for them,” said Ryeburn. As well as her work with Friends of Burma, Ryeburn was the local coordinator for Canadian Crossroads International from the late 1990s to the early 2000s. In that role, Ryeburn helps East Kootenay residents prepare for volunteer placements in Ghana, Nepal, Indonesia and the Ivory Coast. She arranged visits to Canada for participants from India, Indonesia, Ghana and Suriname. As well as working as a student services teacher at TM Roberts Ecole, Barb volunteers between 10 and 20 hours a week for Friends of Burma. “There’s always something, all the little things. It all does add up,” said Ryeburn. Sometimes the workload becomes a lot to handle, but the

friendships she has formed with the refugees she has sponsored makes it all worthwhile. “Sometimes I’m stressed out and I’ll go up to Kimberley and be with the family with a little baby. I wouldn’t think of anything else I’d rather be doing. They are lovely people and they add so much to our lives,” said Ryeburn. She also advocates constantly to change people’s perceptions about refugees. “You don’t have a real idea until you meet someone who’s a refugee,” said Ryeburn. “So many people say, oh, those refugees are taking our jobs, or they are terrorists, or we have to be careful because they are being smuggled in on boats. “But every time you set up a new volunteer and they get to know these people and develop friendships, you see the community’s attitude changing as more and more people hear the stories.”

It’s important to realize that refugees are fleeing life-threatening situations. Welcoming them to Canada is sometimes saving their lives, according to Ryeburn. “We are privileged as Canadians. We do have to battle for things, but we have so many opportunities. When we can try and make that available for people who are in such dire conditions, I can’t think of why you wouldn’t want to do that.” The Paul Yuzyk Award acknowledges individuals across Canada who have made exceptional contributions to the integration of newcomers. It includes a $20,000 grant to be given to an eligible, registered notfor-profit Canadian organization of the recipient’s choice. Ryeburn said if she were to win the award, she will pledge the grant to Friends of Burma to sponsor more refugees.

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 almost $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.

The decline of the West?

Y

ou know the story-line by now. There are one million US-dollar millionaires in China. (“To get rich is glorious,” said former leader Deng Xiao-ping.) Seventy per cent of the homes in China are bought for cash. China’s total trade – the sum of imports and exports – is now bigger than that of the United States. “They’re going to eat our lunch,” whimper the faint-hearted in the West. It’s not just the Chinese who are coming. The Indians and the Brazilians are coming too, with economic growth rates far higher than in the old industrialised countries, but it doesn’t even stop there. There’s also Mexico, Turkey, Indonesia and half a dozen other big countries in what used to be called the Third World that have discovered the secret of high-speed growth. The power shift is happening even faster than the pundits predicted. As recently as 2009, the “Brics” (Brazil, Russia, India and China) accounted for less than one-tenth of total global consumption. The European Union consumed twice as much, and so did the United States. But by 2020, the Brics will be producing and consuming just as much as either of the older economic zones, and by 2025 considerably more than either of them. In fact, if you include not just the four Brics but all the other fast-growing economies of the ex-Third World, in just a dozen years’ time they will account for around 40 per cent of world consumption. As a rule, with wealth comes power, so they will increasingly be calling the tune that the West must dance to. Or at least that is the Doomsday scenario that haunts the strategists and economists of the West. It’s nonsense, for at least three reasons.

First of all, a shift in the world’s centre of economic gravity does not necessarily spell doom for those whose relative influence has dwindled. The last time the centre shifted, when the United States overtook the nations of Europe in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, it did not dent Europe’s prosperity at all. It’s true that by the latter half of the 20th century there were American troops all over Western Europe, but that would not have happened if Europe had not come close to deGwynne stroying itself in the two world wars (which can be Dyer seen as a European civil war in two parts). In any case, the US troops have mostly gone home now, and Europeans live at least as well as Americans. Secondly, the new centre of gravity this time, while mostly located in Asia, is not a single country with a coherent foreign policy like the United States. The four Brics will never become a strategic or economic bloc. They are more likely to split into rival blocs, although one hopes not. And the Mexicos and Turkeys and Indonesias of this new world will have their own fish to fry. So it will be a more complicated world with many major players, and the centre of economic gravity will be in Asia, but there’s nothing particularly strange about this. More than half of the human race lives in Asia, so where else should the centre of gravity be? Asia is very far from monolithic, and there is no logical reason to suppose that its economic rise spells economic decline for the West. Thirdly, descriptions of the future that are simply extrapolations of the present, like the ones at the start of this article, are almost always wrong. If the widely be-

lieved forecasts of the 1980s had been right, Japan would now bestride the world like an economic Colossus. The one certain thing about the future is surprises – but some surprises are a little less surprising than others. Take climate change, for example. The scientific evidence strongly suggests that the tropical and sub-tropical parts of the world, home to almost all of the emerging economic powers, will be much harder hit by global warming than the temperate parts of the globe, farther away from the equator, where the older industrialised countries all live. There is already much anger about this in the new economic powers. Eighty per cent of the greenhouse gases of human origin in the atmosphere were put there by the old-rich countries, who got rich by burning fossil fuels for the past two centuries, and yet they get off lightly while the (relatively) innocent suffer. But even if the newly rich wanted revenge, they are too disunited – and will be too busy coping with the warming – to do much about it. The centre of gravity of the world economy is undoubtedly leaving the old “Atlantic” world of Europe and North America and moving towards Asia, but how far and how fast this process goes remains to be seen. And there is no reason to believe that it will leave the countries of the West poor or helpless. True, economists in the West often ask the question: “what will we sell the emerging countries in the future that they cannot produce for themselves?” In the runaway global warming scenario, the answer would be “food”, but the real answer is sure to be more complex than that. Never mind. They’ll think of something, because they’ll have to. Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist based in London

features know it all

Logistics of Les Misérables C AROLYN GR ANT entertainment@ dailytownsman.com

The Know it All has been to the theatre in recent days and came away mightily impressed with the production of Les Misérables starring students of Selkirk Secondary and McKim Middle School in Kimberley. The work involved in pulling off a complex production of this sort boggles ones mind. Kudos to stage director Bob McCue and musical director Sven Heyde for getting everything they could out of this talented group of young performers. The solid cast featured a number of real standouts and they are all to be congratulated. The lead roles in Les Miséables feature beautiful, but difficult, songs and the young singer/ actors acquitted themselves very well indeed. Also to be given bouquets are the area musicians who gave of their time to provide accompaniment to the singers — the orchestra was tight and obviously well rehearsed, bringing the amazing Les Mis score to life. Costumes were wonderful, sets brilliant. A moving and emotional performance by all — just a wonderful experience. Well done to all involved.

Nedohin remains unbeaten at Scotties GREGORY STRONG Canadian Press

KINGSTON, Ont. Team Canada’s Heather Nedohin isn’t all just emotion and passion on the curling ice. She’s also a master tactician who thrives in pressure settings. Nedohin is as friendly as they come but packs an intensity-loaded wallop in competition. Add it up and you’ve got a formula for success that’s working once again at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts. “She is an extremely determined and feisty individual,” said Canadian lead Laine Peters. “A lot of that is so intrinsic. I don’t think you can necessarily learn it, it’s just in there. “And she’s got it.” Nedohin recorded her fourth straight victory Monday afternoon, needing only seven ends to complete a 12-2 rout of Quebec’s Allison Ross. She improved to 5-0 later in the day with a 10-3 victory over Stacie Devereaux of Newfoundland and Labrador. Manitoba’s Jennifer Jones and Ontario’s Rachel Homan also had 5-0 records after seven draws. Jones defeated Kerry Galusha of the Northwest Territories/Yukon 9-1 in the evening draw while Homan beat New Brunswick’s Andrea Crawford 7-5. Saskatchewan’s Jill Shumay fell to 4-1 after dropping a 12-7 decision to Suzanne Birt of Prince Edward Island. Nedohin is known for delivering ear-piercing orders to teammates Peters, Beth Iskiw and Jessi-

ca Mair down the sheet. The 37-year-old Edmonton skip will sometimes jump in the air, twirl her arms around or contort her body in odd positions when her stones enter the house. “She does have composure when she’s calling the game, but when she’s calling line for her shots she’s so crazy,” Peters said with a laugh. “We see the replays and we kill ourselves laughing because she’s so full of emotion and excitement.” Nedohin simply doesn’t know how to play at a low intensity. “We like that because she pumps all of us up,” Peters said. “She brings that excitement that makes us all feel that way.” The good vibe that Nedohin shares with her teammates was evident before the evening game. With the catchy thump of OutKast’s “Hey Ya!” blaring on the K-Rock Centre sound system, the team members took turns showing each other a few hip-shaking dance moves. They quickly got focused again for the warmup and were all business once play began. The rink has been steady and consistent over the first three days of the tournament. “I believe we’re the same team as last year,” Nedohin said. “We’re just keeping it going.” Nedohin, a married mother of two, is trying to win her third national title. She picked up her first victory in 1998 on Cathy Borst’s Alberta rink.

KIMBERLEY NORDIC CLUB

Cross-country ski racers representing different clubs around B.C., Alberta and the northwestern U.S., came out to the Kimberley Nordic Centre to compete in the Teck Kootenay Cup over the weekend.

Kimberley hosts cross-country ski races TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Cross-country skiers descended on the Kimberley Nordic Centre over the weekend for the final races of the Teck Kootenay Cup Series. The Blackjack Cross-Country Ski Club, out of Rossland, came in first place, due to their

great performances and number of competitors fielded in five races over the two-day event. However, the Kimberley Nordic Club was the runner up in second place, while third went to the Nelson Nordic Club. Roughly 110 skiers competed in the two-person team sprint

event on Saturday, while 143 skiers raced in the classic technique distance race on Sunday. Other groups represented at the event include: Toby Creek Ski Club out of Invermere, Hills Nordic Ski Club from the Slocan Valley, Canmore Nordic Ski Club out of Alberta, Glacier Nordic Ski Club

from Missoula, Banff Ski Runners and Foothills Nordic Ski Club, who came in from Calgary. Lending some star power to the event was Rob McKeever, a former Olympian and National Ski Team member, who participated in a 20-kilometre classic ski race on Sunday. The races were well

attended with over a hundred spectators on both days, which made it the best fan turnout for a Kootenay Cup yet, according to organizers. Organizers also give a shout out to over 40 volunteers who helped out with the event, along with numerous local businesses and Teck for additional support.

Men’s Avalanche ready for provincials TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

After two semesters of volleyball, the men’s Avalanche team is readying for a run at the provincial title when the Pacwest championship kicks off on Thursday at the College of the Rockies. The college was awarded with the honour of hosting the event, and the team is looking forward to home court advantage, according to men’s head coach Steve Kamps. “Court awareness changes when you’re on the road,” said Kamps. “The amount of hours we’ve practiced in this gym, we’ve got three fifth-year guys on this team—that’s a huge advantage for us and combine that with hopefully a big crowd on Thursday night and things should

fall into place for us.” Mitch Duthie, who plays right side with the team, said the home court allows him and his teammates to draw support from the crowd during matches. “We have a great home base,” said Duthie. “We love playing in front of our fans, just like any other home team, but we feel like we do play a lot better at home.” “…With provincials being here, it’s going to be really exiting. We can do big things.” The Avs ended their season two weekends ago on the road, as both the men’s and the women’s teams got defeated by their counterparts from Columbia Bible College and the University of the Fraser Valley. The women had a tough season and weren’t able to finish

Avs need to capitalize on mistakes Alouettes hire new head coach C anadian Press

Continued from page 8 “Coming to provincials, it’s like the start of a new season, so we’re all pretty excited about it,” said Duthie. “It’s just starting over, starting fresh and we’re all looking forward to Thursday night’s game.” The men’s Avs played four matches against the Capilano University Blues, who they will face in the quarterfinal match on Thursday evening at 8 p.m. at the College gym.

“It all boils down ot the mental side of the game and physically, I think we’re one of the most talented teams in the league, sizewise, we’re definitely the biggest in the league and we’re in our own gym...” Steve Kamps The Avs took their only win against the Blues on the road in their opening road trip at the beginning of the season, winning in straight sets. The Blues came

back for a sweep of their own the following day in a rematch, winning 3-0. The Blues also came up to Cranbrook and won two matches in straight sets. “Cap came in here and took a couple off us, which didn’t really sit well with the guys,” said Kamps. However, the Avs are itching to avenge those losses on their home court, where a single win advances them deeper into the championship. “The real season starts on Thursday and we need to be confident and ready to go and if you play well, anything can happen,” said Kamps. “It’s single-elimination and it only takes two wins to get to the final and off to nationals.” “It all boils down to the mental side of the game and physically, I think we’re one of the most talented teams in the league, size-wise, we’re definitely the biggest in the league and we’re in our gym, and all that combined, I think that bodes well for us.” Duthie noted that the Avs had trouble passing the ball and

being consistent when the teams last met. The Blues play a simple style of volleyball and don’t make a lot of mistakes that opposing teams can capitalize on. “We just got to make them make errors,” said Duthie. “...They are a pretty strong hitting team, but nothing crazy—we’ve seen a lot harder. We just got to put our block up and put a good consistent swing on the ball.” Though the Avs have their first game Thursday evening, volleyball action begins in the afternoon at 1 p.m., start-

MONTREAL - The Montreal Alouettes have named Dan Hawkins their new head coach. Hawkins takes over for Marc Trestman, who was hired as the Chicago Bears head coach last month. Hawkins has big shoes to fill. Trestman led the Alouettes to consecutive Grey Cup titles

in 2009 and ‘10) and was named the CFL’s coach of the year in ‘09. The 52-year-old Hawkins has never coached in the CFL, but neither had Trestman when he was hired by the Als. Hawkins does have head-coaching experience at the NCAA level with Boise State and Colorado.

While he was just 19-39 at Colorado, Hawkins was 53-11 at Boise State and holds an overall head-coaching record of 112-61-1. Mike Miller, who served last season as the Arizona Cardinals offensive co-ordinator, will be the Alouettes offensive head coach, offensive co-ordinator and quarterbacks coach.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You find that others often seek you out. Use your imagination, and you’ll come up with many workable ideas. In fact, you’ll have so many options that you might not know which way to go. You have a unique way of understanding personal issues. Tonight: Head home. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Your sense of timing and choice of words appear to be right on, and many people will react to them. You understand far more than others might realize. Listen to someone’s news, but take it with a grain of salt. You’ll want to do what is most workable. Tonight: All smiles. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Be conscious of your limits before you jump into a situation. Your view of what is provocative could change radically. A matter involving your career might not be resolvable at this point. You know what must be done. Carefully consider your options. Tonight: Out late.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Know when to say that you have had enough. Your sense of humor will come out as you begin to understand what motivates others. Detachment gives you a unique perspective that allows you to see a situation differently. Tonight: Have a ball with friends and loved ones. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You might want to be more mindful of your spending, needs and assets. Once you are, you will make better choices. Your ability to understand vagueness can help you in your dealings, but you still might need more information. Friends surround you. Tonight: Where the gang is. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Zero in on your priorities. Understand who you are and with whom you will be dealing. Conversations might become animated, and you could receive more feedback as a result. Trust your intuition when reaching out to someone at a distance. Tonight: Say “yes” to an invitation. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

For Better or Worse

Pressure builds. You might feel as if you have little time to accomplish a lot. Reach out to someone you really care about. This person’s reaction could shock you. A boss pushes hard to get his or her way. You could become overwhelmed as a result. Tonight: To the wee hours. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Reach out to someone at a distance. You could gain critical information that will help you move a project to a different level. Ask questions, and you’ll come up with a better solution or a more workable idea. Your creativity flourishes. Tonight: Respond appropriately. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You might want to head in a new direction. Despite what is happening with others’ insecurities, a partner or associate supports you 100 percent. This person follows his or her intuition. Communication flourishes in real-estate issues. Tonight: At home. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You might want to rethink a decision more carefully. You often

use logic to explain your actions or decisions, but know that they were motivated by a gut feeling or an intuitive hunch. Be honest with yourself. Tonight: Listen to a friend and follow through on his or her suggestion. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Maintain a mellow attitude when dealing with co-workers and associates. They need to ask questions in order to understand why you are moving in a certain direction. You might need to seek out more information on a financial decision. Tonight: Get feedback from others. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Tap into your endless creativity, and know that there are answers to your questions. How you handle a personal detail could change the outcome of an entire situation. Use your ingenuity. Others enjoy their conversations with you. Tonight: Easy works. Attention is reciprocal.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I am a 19-year-old heroin addict striving toward recovery. I go to five Narcotics Anonymous meetings a week, but I have occasional setbacks. After the most recent incident, I left drug paraphernalia in the bathroom. I took full responsibility and was ashamed and disgusted with myself. But the first thing my mother said was, “Did you leave that out on purpose so your sister could find it and start experimenting? She’s only 13!” Annie, my sister is anti-drugs, and I talk to her a lot about the subject. I believe openness and honesty are the keys to avoidance, and I will do everything I can to save her from making the same mistakes I have made. My parents will never understand addiction, but I wish they would try a little harder. I have repeatedly asked them to come to one NA meeting. I wrote them a three-page letter explaining the importance of my going to meetings and how valuable their support would be to me. I arranged for people to talk to my parents so they could ask questions that might be too uncomfortable to ask me directly, but they had no interest. They discourage me from attending meetings, and when I brought home literature from NA for them, they left it on the floor, and the dog chewed it. I am heartbroken and need their support so much. Fighting my addiction is hard and scary, and instead of helping, they attack. I don’t know what else I can do. -- Begging for Mummy and Daddy Dear Begging: Your parents are frightened -- for you and for your sister -- and they also don’t trust you. Getting off of hard drugs is a difficult process, and we commend your efforts. Your parents’ support is important. But if your setbacks include using drugs in their home and leaving paraphernalia in plain sight, it contributes to their anger. Would your parents help with the cost of a reputable rehab facility? The Salvation Army also offers a program. You are making progress, but it is often beneficial to be separated from the culture that contributes to your drug use. Please show your parents this letter, and tell them you wrote it. We hope it helps. Dear Annie: My father has Alzheimer’s, and I have attended a support group for five years. I have learned a lot. Please let your readers know that the Alzheimer’s Association offers support groups, as well as information on local services, how to find good medical help and social workers who can assist with problems including wandering, driving and medication. You can learn how others have dealt with similar problems. There is informational literature on how to prepare for what may happen next with your loved one. People who do not live in the area with the affected relative (considered a long-distance caregiver) can also benefit greatly from attending a support group where they live. The association’s focus is on all dementias, not just Alzheimer’s. Thank you for spreading the word. -- Caring for Dad Dear Dad: We often mention the Alzheimer’s Association in this space. It is an invaluable resource, and we are grateful to you for delineating what they do. Readers can contact them at alz.org. Dear Annie: We, too, went through the same turmoil as “Indiana Mom” because of a vindictive daughter-in-law who convinced our idiot son (he’s a Ph.D.) to prevent us from seeing our grandchildren. Finally, no longer willing to tolerate this form of “grandparent abuse,” we disinherited my son and grandchildren and will never see them again. It was a painful decision, but we had to do it in order to maintain our stability. In retrospect, it was the right decision. We have regained our emotional equilibrium. -- California Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

TRAVEL

Très magnifique – the beautiful city of Paris

P

aris is a city brimming with art, history, culture and architecture. One soon understands why Paris is affectionately referred to as the City of Light and Lovers. Paris is an experiential city. Stroll along the River Seine, savour a glass of wine at a bustling café, explore breezy boulevards, roam manicured parks. The city ensconces you in its cultural ambience and beauty. The Eiffel Tower has become the symbol of the City of Light. It was built for the 1889 World Exhibition, to celebrate the French Revolution having taken place 100 years previous. Be sure to include this iconic monument for an amazing panoramic view of the city. Another impressive vantage point of Paris is from the steps of Sacre-Coeur. Live like a Parisian: bring a blanket, brie cheese and wine to enjoy the sunset and early evening magic.

Museums and art are abundant in and around Paris. The Louvre is the world’s most visited museum. It houses sculptures, drawings, archaeological finds and paintings, the most famous being, the Mona Lisa. Not to be missed is a converted railway station, now museum: the Musee d’Orsay. It has an incredible collection of Impressionists paintings. Van Gogh, Monet, Degas and Renoir may all be witnessed here. At some museums, entrance is free the first Sunday of every month. Be sure to arrive early and be prepared for a busy day. The Champs-Elysees is a 17th century garden promenade turned avenue connecting the Place de la Concorde and the Arc de Triomphe and home to the final stage of the Tour de France. Specialty shops, boutiques, chic restaurants, cinemas, and car show rooms provide great people watching while enjoying a scrumptious pastry. If you’re a shopper,

rants, patisseries and coffee shops. Paris easily lives up to its culinary reputation. Disneyland Paris is fun for the whole family. Any time of year is a great time to visit Paris. Exceptional seasons are spring and fall when one can enjoy mild days

and fresh nights. When staying in Paris the rule of thumb is “location, location, location.” Booking accommodation well in advance is recommended. Exploring the city’s districts, or arrondissements, is best done from a central location.

Euro is the currency of France. ATMs use a four-digit pin number and traveller’s cheques are not recommended. Most cafés, restaurants and hotels include a service charge. It’s always astute to review your bill carefully. The ‘joie de vivre” of

Paris will surely capture your heart! For your sojourn to the capital of France call Mountain City Travel – Carlson Wagonlit at 250-427-2233, toll-free 1-877-427-2233 or email travel@mcity.ca. P.S.: we’ve been there: many times. 

Alberta environmentalists take caribou concerns to U.S. Bob Weber Canadian Press

EDMONTON — Alberta environmentalists are going south with their concerns over the effects of the province’s energy industry on caribou. Convincing Alberta’s oil customers in the United States that they should press for greater protection of the vanishing herds is the only way to get action, said Helene Walsh of Keepers of the Athabasca, one of the groups behind the move. “We think that’s the only hope for our caribou and other issues of biodiversity in the province,’’ she said Tuesday. “It seems clear ... that depending on the Alberta government for better resource development just isn’t going to do the trick.’’ Spokespeople for the provincial government or industry weren’t available for comment.

The Keepers, along with the Alberta Wilderness Association, have sent a package of information on caribou habitat to groups who were involved in a rally in Washington on the weekend against the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. The Alberta conservationists want caribou to become part of a wider discussion in the U.S. on the environmental impacts of Alberta’s energy industry. The information points to studies that suggest nearly all of Alberta’s 13 caribou herds are in decline, with several of them expected to vanish within a generation. Habitat fragmentation, which shrinks the old-growth forest that caribou need and provides predators for a route to the animals, is generally cited as the main reason. Alberta continues to sell oil and gas leases in the small remnant of

caribou habitat that remains relatively undisturbed — although industry is required to follow guidelines on those lands designed to minimize the impact. Walsh said that’s the kind of information an increasingly environmentally aware population wants as it makes its energy choices. “Increasingly, the markets are demanding more sustainably produced products,’’ she said. “They need to know that’s not what’s happening in Alberta and maybe that pressure can force change.’’ One of the groups that received the information was the Washington-based Natural Resources Defense Council. Spokeswoman Elizabeth Shope said the group has been aware of caribou concerns for some time and will use the new material as it lobbies U.S. lawmakers

and the State Department on the upcoming Keystone XL pipeline decision. Although Keystone would largely move bitumen from the oilsands, Shope said the oilsands and the conventional industry are part of the same problem. “It’s really important that the State Department consider the impacts to caribou and other wildlife as part of the environmental impacts of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline.’’ Walsh doesn’t make any apologies for enlisting foreigners in what might be considered a provincial issue. “We’re trying to motivate government and industry to do better so they will have continued access to markets. Balance between economic development and the environment does not mean that the environment loses all the time.’’
