Cranbrook court

Accused in Marysville murder back in court

Claudia De Assumpcao made a brief appearance March 18 from a correctional centre in Maple Ridge Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

The woman charged

in the March 8 alleged murder of a 47-year-old man in Marysville had a second brief court appearance on Monday. Claudia De Assumpcao has been charged with second degree murder and arson over the death of Jordon Lenard Lomsnes earlier this month. According to RCMP, De Assumpcao, 37, was Lomsnes’s girlfriend and they lived together for a year before his death. On Monday, March

18, De Assumpcao appeared before Judge Grant Sheard via video link from Alouette Correctional Centre for Women in Maple Ridge. De Assumpcao was remanded in custody until her lawyer is able to contact her to discuss a bail hearing. Her next court appearance will be on April 15 in Cranbrook, at which time a date is likely to be set for a bail hearing in Cranbrook Supreme Court.

A controversial mining claim near Cherry Creek Falls in Meadowbrook has been designated a Mineral No Registration Reserve by the provincial Gold Commissioner May Mah-Paulson. What this means is that no new mineral claims can be registered on the 400 plus acre property, which has been a concern for Meadowbrook residents for well over a year. In the fall of 2011, Meadowbrook residents were dismayed to learn that the owner of the claim wished to put

a trailer on the site and, potentially, a quarry. The Meadowbrook Community Association was formed soon after, with the goal of protecting the popular recreation site, possibly by creating a day use park. Working with Jane Walter, Area E director for the Regional District of East Kootenay, the MCA was able to get a commitment from the RDEK to create a regional park, but there were still roadblocks — the owners of the claim were willing to sell but over $50,000 had to be raised, and the land was still a mineral claim.

A prominent Canadian singer-songwriter and an old friend of Cranbrook is making an appearance at the Studio Stage Door next week. Stephan Fearing is currently in transit — driving a car across Canada on a tour in support of his first solo album in seven years. He touches down in Cranbrook Wednesday, March 27. “I’ve played (the Studio Stage Door) a bunch, and I’ve played (the Key City Theatre too)” Fearing told the Townsman from somewhere near Osoyoos. In fact, it was only a year ago he took to the stage at the latter venue with Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, another of his musical incarnations (also featuring

Colin Linden and Tom Wilson). “I’m always out — either on my own, or with Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, or with Fearing and White,” Fearing said of the touring life. “I haven’t put out a solo record in a long time, because other priorities have taken over. But I make my living playing music. That means you have to take on a number of different aspects of that, just to make it work. “With the Rodeo Kings, it’s a bigger beast, it takes a little more coordination and logistics and all that. As solo artist, it’s easier in some ways — a guitar, a car and a box of records in the back, so I do a lot of that too.” The new album, “Between Hurricanes,”

“As solo artist, it’s easier in some ways — a guitar, a car and a box of records in the back.”

“Yellowjacket.” The new songs reflect numerous changes that have occurred in his life in between times — getting divorced, remarried, becoming a father, ending a relationship with his record label and his manager. “The title came up because I decided I was going to paint my house as well as write the songs for the album at the same time. Where I live, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, August to September is hurricane season, and the two events kind of came together. “The idea of between hurricanes kind of fits — that calm where things settle for a short period of time.” Fearing also discussed the processes through which those songs were written. “Sometimes I start with a phrase, more often than not I’ll start with a musical phrase. With this album, I had a short window of time to write most of the songs, so it was just a matter of literally sitting down and taking the time to allow a song to come through.

“Melody is very important to me, perhaps more so than it used to be,” he added. “I think I was a little more ‘lyric-centric’ in the past, but the last couple of records I’ve been really concentrating on melody. “Melody is hardwired. I find that after shows the things that people remember are the melodies more than lyrics.” Fearing is used to performing and writing for large ensembles (Rodeo Kings) and small (Fearing and White). Different strategies can apply when performing solo — switching up guitar tunings from standard from time to time, like DADGAD, or — his favourite alternative tuning — Double Drop D, where both E strings in standard are tuned down to a D. “The alternate tunings give you give a more varied palette to work from as a performer,” Fearing said. “I think that as a solo player you have three elements working with you: the guitar, the voice, and the song itself. So trying to add different picking patterns, different textures, varying the tempos, etc, so that it’s not just strum, strum, strum. You’re there to entertain people.” As to the legendary grind of the touring life, Fearing still finds it enjoyable. “There’s a point in your life when you realize that this is what you do, and it’s too late to quit, unless you want to go get a job at WalMart or something. But I’m lucky, because I really love what I do, and the chance to tour solo again — I don’t know how many more times I’ll be able to get to drive across this country of ours.” Stephen Fearing is appearing at the Studio Stage Door on Wednesday, March 27. The show is part of the Beannick Subscription Concert Series.

Just a lick of paint on the old locomotive

Sunrise Rotary’s project to restore the old Elko train opposite the Cranbrook arches is almost complete, with its finishing touches to be made by July 2013 Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

There was a halt over winter, but work will soon get started again on the Elko train restoration. The Paint the Train project, which began in May 2012, involves a lot more than a simple paint job. The Sunrise Rotary Club has taken on the responsibility of restoring a 1950s-era train that sits beside Highway 3/95, opposite the Cranbrook arches.

Sunrise Rotary president Daryl Richardson accepts a $2,000 donation from BC Hydro’s Lisa Coltart, executive director of Power Smart and Customer Care, and the Tuesday, March 19 Rotary breakfast. So far, metal panels on the train have been replaced, the exterior has been sandblasted, and the train has been primed for painting. All that’s left is some minor welding, the replacement of broken glass in the windows, and final paint work and lettering. The project is likely to be completed by

mid-July 2013. While Sunrise Rotary members have done a lot of the grunt work, said Rotary member Frank Vanden Broek, local businesses have made significant donations to the project. “Riemann Painting have been doing all the sandblasting, priming and painting, all at their own cost. It’s the

equivalent of tens of thousands of dollars,” said Vanden Broek. “Sandor Rentals donated the equipment rental, especially for the sandblasting, also in the tens of thousands. “Fab Rite Services have donated a lot of work at cost,” he said, adding that its work included welding, strip-

College of the Rockies welding instructor Tim Ross also donated time to help with the welding. “Club members did a whole bunch of the grunt work,” said Vanden Broek. “We had numerous work parties during the summer

with club members.” Financial contributions have been made by the Downtown Business Association, Columbia Basin Trust through the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance, Hryciuk Gallinger Accountants, and Community Futures. On Tuesday, March 19, BC Hydro helped see the project through

to completion with a $2,000 grant. “We want to get it done and completed, but we are still looking for donations,” said Vanden Broek. To contribute to the Paint the Train campaign, please contact Frank Vanden Broek at 250-421-1523.

TrailsSociety,Friends of Lois Creek, improving signage on local trails Nigel Kit to Secretary Kimberley Trails Society

If you’ve been on the Lois Creek Trails lately, you may have noticed the new maps on the kiosks at Lindsay Park and 8th Ave. entrances. This project has been coordinated by the Kimberley Trails Society, working with Friends of Lois Creek, the Kootenay Orienteering Club and Recreation Sites and Trails BC. Jim Webster from KOC has put together a clear and accurate map, and the eye catching and informative poster was designed by Maurice Frits of Kimberley Promotions. The new trail signs installed last year by Don Davis and Blake Rawson from FOLC, with the new maps are providing a much improved experience to both locals and visitors to Lois Creek. The ‘Tea Spot Loop’ route signs installed last fall will have further im-

provement this year. Some of the fibreglass posts at key junctions will be replaced by wooden posts, with signs showing the map and other trail information to help users find their way along the loop to the Tea Spot. Kimberley Trails Society has successfully obtained a grant from the Resort Municipalities Infrastructure development fund to work on this, and other signage projects around Kimberley. A new kiosk at the Morrison Sub entrance to Lois Creek Trails is planned, along with improvement to signage at the Kimberley Campground trails, and the Swann Ave entrance to the Kimberley Nature Park. Also, working in conjunction with the Kimberley Nordic Centre there are plans to improve signage for Round the Mountain, the Magic Line Trails and the Nordic Don Davies, Blake Rawson, Nugget the Dog and Nigel Kitto check out the new signs at Lois Creek.

The Open Installation of Officers for Harmony Chapter for the 2013 – 14 term was called for Saturday, March 16, 2013 at 2 p.m. in the Selkirk Masonic Hall in Kimberley, BC. Prior to the official opening of the Chapter, Out-going Worthy Matron, Myra Farquhar, welcomed representatives from Kimberley’s ‘M e to We’ group. These young ladies, Maddie Guimont; Maggie Gilbert and Haylie Farquhar, gave a brief but educational over view of the group’s purposes and aims. They acknowledged with thanks the past support that they had received from the Eastern Star and for the privilege of sharing awareness with new faces. Acting Worthy Patron, John McGillivray PP from Chinook Chp #133 in Calgary welcomed the room full of guests and the outgoing officers into the Chapter

room. The Conductress opened the Bible and the Chaplain lead the gathering in the Lord’s Prayer. Pro-tem Marshal, Peter Mennie presented the flag and O Canada was sung. Visitors included Past Grand Matron Eileen Palmieri of Golden, Jean Fleury from Jubilee #64, Cranbrook, Grand Representative of Kansas and Jackie Thesen from Golden #25, Grand Representative of Tennessee of the Grand Chapter of British Columbia & Yukon, Order of the Eastern Star, Worthy Matrons, Roberta Richards from Jubilee #64 in Cranbrook and Faye Riches from Golden #25, Worthy Patron, Colin Campbell from Jubilee #64. Nine members with over 50 years service to the Order were welcomed and warmly applauded. A special welcome was extended to Flo McGillivray, mother of John and Myra who is a 82 year member of the

Star. Myra bragged that her mother has been in attendance for each of her installations to the east. Harmony Officers that were installed were Worthy Matron- Sr Myra Farquhar , Associate Matron – Sr Didi Stroud; Associate Patron- Br Peter Mennie; Treasurer- Sr Jan LivingstoneL; Conductress - Sr Ruby Rioux; Conductress – Sr Marnie Henne; Organist- Br Colin Campbell; Adah – Sr Jane Campbell; Ruth – Sr Pat Oslund; Esther – Sr Jean Craik; Electa- Sr Barbara Craig; Warder – Br Dick Robison. WM Myra read her acceptance speech thanking the members for electing her this particular year as it was 80 years ago that her maternal grandmother, Sr Georgina Morrison was installed as Worthy Matron and ‘ now I have the privilege of wearing that same pin.’ She thanked all for their promised support.

Meadowbrook land designated mineral reserve From PAGE 1 MCA president Bob Johnstone says the word from the Gold Commissioner came last Friday. “Basically it means the claim will become Crown land and no one can mine there again,” he said. “The RDEK will decide on the size of the park.” Johnstone says it’s unnecessary to make the entire 400 acres a park — the area of most interest to residents to protect is right around the creek, with the rest being available for recreational use. He says they will offer assistance and guidance to RDEK staff regarding the park. “We’d just like to see maybe a washroom and picnic tables, maybe a proper fire pit.” That is all for the RDEK to decide, Johnstone is just happy that they were able to prevent a quarry that close to the falls and creek. “Bill Bennett, MLA for East Kootenay and Minister for Community, Sport and Cultural Development, and Doug Clovechok, BC Liberal candidate for Columbia River – Revelstoke have been actively working hard with provincial officials, the tenure holder and us, but we were not sure if they would succeed. “It’s exciting.” The MCA had to raise $51,000 to purchase the mineral claim and Johnstone says that, through dona-

tions and grants, they have done that. He says announcements from some of the larger funders are pending. He says that the community association has enjoyed working with the RDEK Board and staff on this issue. “In particular, Johnstone said, “I would like to express our Board’s appreciation to Area E Director, Jane Walter, for her steadfast opposition to the proposed quarry and her untiring efforts towards creation of a regional park”. Walters said that teh RDEK re working on an application to the provincial government to create a 40 acre Area E park. She also says Columbia River Revelstoke MLA Norm Macdonald provided assistance, writing letters in support of the park. The MCA was founded on April 5, 2012. In less than a year the Association has incorporated as a society, signed up 179 members, obtained a reserve surrounding Cherry Creek Falls and raised the more than $50,000 required. “It has been a very busy first year”, Johnstone said, “But the determination, dedication, and diligence of my colleagues on the Board: Marie Kohlman, Sandra Loewen, John Lyon, David Mayes, Margaret Mayes and Marty Musser, have ensured it has been a rewarding one”.

Work to construct a new building near Walmart to house Sport Chek and The Dollar Tree will start soon, after council development permit on Monday, March 18. It was the second time council discussed the development; on March 4 council postponed its decision over concerns with traffic flow into and around the site. But since that meeting, the developer, Smart Centres, has committed to contributing $5,000 to the city for a traffic impact assessment, and that pledge was enough to convince council to approve the 22,000 square foot building. “I am very pleased to see that Smart Centres will provide a letter of commitment to provide a $5,000 contribution to the city to undertake a traffic impact assessment of the road system leading up to the complex,” said Mayor Wayne Stetski. The new building will be locat-

ed opposite Walmart where the yellow bins used to be, between La Vie En Rose and EB Games. Part of the parking lot will be swallowed up by the construction, but an additional 200 parking spaces will be created in front of Home Hardware and beside Walmart. A new sidewalk would be built from McPhee Road through the property to the existing sidewalk on Willowbrook Drive. “I’m very pleased that this project is going through. It just means that other businesses from outside our area think that Cranbrook is a viable economic place to do business,” said Councillor Denise Pallesen. “It’s not just the folks in the city that will be going to these two new stores; it’s the draw from around here of 50,000 people up the valleys and down to Creston. They don’t all come in just to go to Sport Chek – they’ll go to the Tamarack mall, they’ll go to Superstore, they’ll even go downtown. So I’m pleased with any economic growth. I think these

are great businesses.” At the last meeting, council and city staff expressed concern about traffic congestion coming into the complex from Tim Horton’s and traffic flow within the site. The $5,000 commitment from Smart Centres gave council reason to approve the development on March 18, although Councillor Bob Whetham suggested the developer look again at traffic issues. “My only issue is the traffic circulation within the site. It’s no great shakes right now – parts of it are like a free-for-all,” said Councillor Whetham. “I think ultimately you have to satisfy the customers as well. If it’s difficult to move around the site, then that’s not going to be a positive thing. “Some of these things it would seem to me should be able to be resolved without a great deal of difficulty. “I hope the developers will look into that as a service to the customers.”

Shelter needs momentum

As the Salvation Army struggles to meet the needs of Cranbrook’s less fortunate without a permanent homeless shelter, city council is affirming its support for the project and urging BC Housing to approve the facility. The Salvation Army’s Captain Kirk Green wrote to council earlier this month explaining the difficulties the church faces while it waits for funding for the $16 million emergency shelter and transitional housing project. “We are facing an epidemic of demand,” wrote Capt. Green. “The current temporary winter shelter services we provide does not come near to managing the immense need in the community.” Capt. Green cited three recent instances where the church was unable to help people in the community who need supportive housing. “In each instance, safe, secure and affordable supportive housing could have been the starting point to recovery and unfortunately in each incident we were limited to partial and patchwork solutions,” he wrote. The proposed homeless shelter would house 80 people and provide services such as addic-

tions counselling, anger management and life skills programming. There would be housing for overnight stays, short-term units and long-term units for single people and families. It would be built behind the Salvation Army on Slater Road. But the project has been waiting for funding

approval from BC Housing since October 2011. Each community in the Regional District of East Kootenay has come together to pledge $260,00 for the project, including a $68,000 contribution from Cranbrook. Council also agreed in October 2011 to waive development cost charges of $138,000.

On Monday, March 18, Mayor Wayne Stetski put forward a motion that council send a letter to BC Housing, “restating our support for the project and asking the question in terms of where this fits on BC Housing’s priority list,” he said. Council unanimously agreed to send the letter.

with local residents and to conduct neighborhood enquiries. However, due to potential slope instability, officers did not personally attend two vacant residences on the South side of the slide. (Warning signs remain in place and the public is cautioned not to go into the area due to the slide risk). One residence on Holmgren Road, situated in the slide area, has an outbuilding/ garage near the property. The outbuilding was broken into and the following items stolen: an older Toro Ride on mower, a table saw, and an air compressor. (This was the property where the three deceased were located). The property owner of a second residence located on McNichol Road, the other side of the slide, reports that he is missing: a yellow “Moose” snowplow blade for his ATV, assorted hand tools, a twin mattress, 100 Lp’s and 100 45 rpm records, and also an Apple lap-

The Kaslo RCMP is currently investigating a rash of break-ins to properties affected by last year’s massive landslide at Johnson’s Landing. Thieves risked their own lives and entered the slide area to gain access to several residences within the evacuated zone and stole tools and other items. On March 17, 2013, Kaslo RCMP received a report of a Break and Enter involving four unoccupied buildings in the Johnson’s Landing slide area. The offences are believed to have occurred some time during the past week (Mar 11 - Mar 16). The unknown suspect(s) broke into one residence and a garage, and then navigated their way through slide debris to access two more unoccupied residences on the South side of Johnson’s Landing.

It is indeed extremely unfortunate that not only were the property owners victimized by the original slide but eight months later are victimized again by criminals stealing their property.

ompared with the “transformational” mega-budget of 2012, “Economic Action Plan 2013” will likely be a humdrum, quiet affair – with little new spending, perhaps $2 billion in new cuts, and a great deal of tweaking intended to make the Harper government appear cautious, moderate, sensible and competent. As “action plans” plans go, this is unremarkable stuff. Politically, though, the budget may do the ruling Conservatives some good. As reported by Postmedia News in late January, the centerpiece of Thursday’s budget document and speech will be training; forging a better fit between the skills of those in the labour force, and the requirements of employers. Over the past year, Conservative insiders say, Prime Minister Stephen Harper has heard repeatedly from business leaders who say their inability to find skilled workers is impeding growth. Solving that problem now takes centre stage. Skills training for seniors, immigrants, the disabled and aboriginals is expected to receive particular attention. The PMO has long believed better job training could help ease economic hardship on aboriginal reserves, while also providing northern resource firms with a better-trained and readily available pool of workers. This dovetails with the Harper government’s incremental approach to addressing social problems on reserves, working on a caseby-case basis with bands interested in economic development. As has been signaled by the government for weeks, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty will reiterate his plan to eliminate the federal deficit within the current term, before the 2015 election. That will allow the Conservatives to make good on promises

made in 2011, many of which carried the caveat of a balanced budget. If the finance minister can deliver, fiscal hawks in the Tory caucus point out, Canada will be among the first western nations to return to balance since the recession of 2009, without having raised taxes. Flaherty will almost certainly provide himself with some wiggle room, however, citing continuing economic troubles in Europe and the slow recovery in the United States, and perhaps the “bitumen bubble,” which is weighing on Canadian crude prices, and thus government revenues. In order to make balance in 2015 feasible, the government must add to the $5.2 billion in spending cuts announced in 2012. Benefit packages of federal civil servants may be a target for savings – as has occurred in labour negotiations in both private and public sectors in recent years. The Department of National Defence will come in for further reductions, which the government will bill as mainly administrative. All told, the new cuts are expected to garner as much as $2 billion in annual savings. The tone of this budget will be quite different from last year’s, not only because there will be significantly less of it pagewise, but also because it is intended to project a prudent, yet moderate message. The point is simply to avoid annoying Canadians further while consolidating the dramatic changes made last year, for example on the approvals process for resource developments. In purely political terms, we will see in this budget the emergence of the Harper government’s strategy for re-election. The Conservative brand took three major hits last year: the robocalls scandal, still slowly unfolding; the controversy over its two omnibus budget bills, C-38 and C-45; and the F-35 fighter procurement debacle. The

Conservatives’ reputation for integrity, democratic accountability, honesty and managerial competence all sustained heavy damage. Hence, the government’s desire to pull in its horns and strike a less abrasive tone – a shift it is expected to reinforce in the coming summer cabinet shuffle. Though Conservatives are quick to assert that nobody but Stephen Harper knows the plan for cabinet, there is broad expectation within Conservative circles that some older, male faces at the table will be replaced by younger, female ones, in an effort to rejuvenate the government’s approach and image. This becomes particularly important as the Tories face off with a Liberal party that may be reinvigorated by the retail appeal of its soon-to-be new leader, Justin Trudeau. Conservative strategists believe NDP leader Tom Mulcair has sidelined himself in recent months, first with his misfired proposed revamp of the federal Clarity Act, and more recently with his perceived undermining of the Keystone XL pipeline project. That positions Trudeau, in the near term, as the opposition leader most likely to appeal to economically conservative Canadians who, while more-or-less content with the government’s economic policies, dislike its harsh political style. To answer that, the Tories have but two weapons: First, be less abrasive. Second, provide the kind of prudent, middle-ofthe-road economic management that Canadians have repeatedly endorsed at the polls, since the Chretien years. Whether the Harper Conservatives will meet these tests remains to be seen: What is clear is that they intend to try. Michael Den Tandt is a columnist for the Postmedia News

Sanchez established as Jets’ starter, but there will be open competition PHOENIX - Mark Sanchez will be given every opportunity to remain the New York Jets’ starting quarterback. He’ll have to beat out David Garrard, Greg McElroy - and maybe even Tim Tebow - in what coach Rex Ryan insists will be an open competition. “Somebody has to take the first snap,” Ryan said Tuesday at the NFL meetings. “That’s kind of how I look at it. But there is definitely competition at that spot. The first snap, he’ll be the guy running out there first. But there’s going to be competition, and clearly we have to improve at the quarterback position.”

Sanchez struggled mightily last year, and was benched in favour of third-stringer Greg McElroy for a game. Associated Press

Leafs recall defenceman defenceman Jake Gardiner TORONTO - The Toronto Maple Leafs have recalled defenceman Jake Gardiner from the American Hockey League. “Congrats Jake Gardiner on #NHL call up to #Leafs from #Marlies! Jake was getting ready to play #AHL tonight in Lake Erie,” Gardiner’s agent Ben Hankinson posted on his Twitter account Tuesday. Leafs general manager Dave Nonis confirmed the move during an interview on Sportsnet Radio in Toronto. The call-up comes one week after Hankinson caused a stir after tweeting “#FreeJakeGardiner” shortly after the Leafs looked lacklustre in a 5-2 road loss to Winnipeg. Gardiner has made a case for a call-up this season, posting 10 goals and 21 assists in 43 games with the American Hockey League’s Toronto Marlies. Canadian Press

Minor ball accepting registrations Local baseball groups band together to organize the Sam Steele ball tournament TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

It’s time to dust off the cleats and start swinging the bats as the Cranbrook Minor Ball Association gears up for registration for the next two weeks. Boys aged 4-16 and girls aged 4-18 can sign up for the upcoming season—with a registration deadline of April 8th—at Players Bench or online at Cranbrook Minor Ball president Seana-Lee Coolbaugh said numbers appear to be up again this year—a trend that is continu-

ing from last season. There will also be rep tryouts for the Jr. Babe Wild team, which travels throughout the East and West Kootenays. The girls in the U12, U14 and U16 age divisions will also have tryouts for the Cranbrook Heat rep teams. The organization is also hoping to host it’s first home tournament in the beginning of June. Sam Steele Ball Tournament Cranbrook Minor Ball Association is also pairing up with a few other local baseball or-

ganizations to run the annual Sam Steele Ball tournament in June. Junior Chamber International (JCI) Kootenay had taken ownership of the event for the last seven years, but decided to call it quits with their final tournament last June. Cranbrook Minor Ball Association, along with other groups like the Rocky Mountain Bandits and the Home Run Society and a few others, have pitched in to pick up the slack. “The Home Run Society was looking at it, but they didn’t have enough bodies, and its just kind of came out,”

Coolbaugh said. “We all just started working together to get the best use we can, so it should be really good.” However, JCI will continue to run the Balls of Steele bocce tournament. Though the JCI’s won’t be officially running the show, Coolbaugh said they are always a phone call away for advice. The new supergroup of local baseball organizations are hoping to take profits from the tournament and redirect it back into capital investments at ball parks in the city. Coolbaugh said the

team is creating a men’s and women’s division, and are working on scheduling more games for each individual squad that enters. Other changes may include bigger cash prizes for the tournament winners, softball poker—where the winning team gets two cards, with the pot going to the team with the best hand—and an exhibition game featuring some of the younger local talent. “We’re still putting different things together,” continued Coolbaugh.

Sports NFL owners pass new rule changes Barry Wilner Associated Press

PHOENIX - Concerned with how it will be officiated, NFL owners delayed voting Tuesday on a rule change that would ban offensive players from using the crown of their helmets against defenders in the open field. After approving two other rule changes to enhance player safety, they stalled on the more contentious issue. NFL senior vice-president of football operations Ray Anderson said the owners plan to vote on it Wednesday before the meetings end. The owners outlawed peel-back blocks anywhere on the field; previously, they were illegal only inside the tackle box. A player makes a peel-back block when he is moving toward his goal line, approaches an opponent from behind or the side, and makes contact below the waist. The penalty will be

15 yards. “... really under no circumstances will you be permitted to block low below the waist when you’re blocking back towards your own end line,” said Rams coach Jeff Fisher, co-chairman of the competition committee. Also banned is overloading a formation while attempting to block a field goal or extra point. Defensive teams can now have only six or less players on each side of the snapper at the line of scrimmage. Players not on the line can’t push teammates on the line into blockers, either. The alignment violation is a 5-yard penalty. The pushing penalty is 15 yards for unnecessary roughness. “There were injuries, yes,” Fisher said. “Talking to coaches and the players, it’s just not something they look forward to doing. It’s like, ‘Oh, we scored again? We have to go out there and protect, kick an

extra point or try?”’ But the potential change that has drawn the most attention - yes, even more than eliminating the infamous tuck rule, which seems to be a foregone conclusion and will be voted on Wednesday - is prohibiting ball carriers outside the tackle box from lowering their helmets and making contact with defenders with the crown. New York Giants

owner John Mara, a member of the competition committee that has recommended the change, said there was “a chance” a vote could be tabled until the May meetings in Boston. “There was a spirited discussion,” Mara said. Many coaches have said they are concerned about officiating such a new rule. “In all fairness it’s going to be tough on the officials, it’s going to be

tough to make that determination at live speed with one look,” said John Harbaugh of the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens. Harbaugh noted that in the competition committee’s examination of one week of play last season, it found five instances where a ball carrier was not protecting the ball or himself and lowered his helmet to make contact with a defender.

MLB and NFL working on scheduling problem for Ravens’ 2013 opener Barry Wilner Associated Press

PHOENIX - Major League Baseball is looking into a solution to a scheduling issue that could prevent the Super Bowl champion Ravens from opening next season in Baltimore. Traditionally, the NFL’s champs kick off the season on the

Thursday night after Labor Day with a home game. But the Orioles are set to play the White Sox that night at Camden Yards, which uses the same parking lots as the Ravens’ stadium. “From a baseball competitive standpoint, it would be very difficult to change times. We’re talking about September,” MLB

senior vice-president Katy Feeney, who oversees scheduling, said Tuesday. Sept. 5, to be exact, in the midst of the stretch run for the pennant and wild cards. The NFL said it does not have the option of moving the Ravens’ opener to the previous night because of Rosh Hashanah.

US Open tennis ups prize money to $50M by 2017 Associated Press

The U.S. Open tennis tournament will increase its annual prize money to $50 million by 2017 - nearly double what it was last year and switch back to a Sunday men’s final in 2015, The Associated Press has learned. As part of an unprecedented five-year agreement with the men’s and women’s professional tours, New York’s Grand Slam also is making an additional $4.1 million increase to this year’s prize pool, on top of an already-record $4 million jump announced in December. That brings the 2013 total payout to $33.6 million from the $25.5 million in 2012. The moves, aimed at improving relations with players seeking a greater say in the sport and a larger slice of

Grand Slam revenues, were formally presented to the ATP Player Council at a meeting Tuesday in Key Biscayne, Fla. Details were described to the AP by U.S. Tennis Association officials in telephone interviews after their session with representatives from the men’s tour. The USTA planned to announce the changes Wednesday. “Roger Federer said it perhaps best of all: It’s time for us to work together, as opposed to working against each other,” USTA Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer Gordon Smith said. The USTA’s prize money announcement comes before both the French Open (which starts May 26) and Wimbledon (which starts June 24) say how much they will offer this year.

Growing into, Homan splits two games at Growing into, or growing out of? world curling championship or growing out of? Growing into, or growing out of? Gregory Strong Canadian Press

RIGA, Latvia - Canada is on the playoff bubble entering the final two days of round-robin competition at the world women’s curling championship. Rachel Homan’s rink has been brilliant at times and inconsistent at others over the first few days at the Volvo Sports Center. The national champs from the Ottawa Curling Club team have a mediocre 4-3 record to show for it, leaving them in a pack of teams tied for fourth place. However, optimism reigned after Homan dropped an 8-4 decision to Sweden’s Margaretha Sigfridsson on Tuesday in a game that was much tighter than the score suggested. It was a breakthrough performance by the Canadians even though they came up short. For the first time, they displayed the form they used to win their first Scotties title last month. Canada shot at an impressive 89 per cent clip against the 2012 world silver medallists, who fired an 88 per cent overall but were just a touch better when it counted. “If there’s such a thing as a good loss, that was one,” said Canadian coach Earle Morris. The back-and-forth battle saw plenty of rocks in play, but little

scoring until the 10th end. Sigfridsson got around a guard and knocked Homan’s stone from the four-foot ring for the win, with three other stones in the house beefing up the score. “It was very frustrating to lose that one because we definitely outplayed them,” Homan said. “But that happens sometimes, that’s curling. You just move on and take the good from that game and keep doing it.”

“It was very frustrating to lose that one because we definitely outplayed them. But that happens sometimes, that’s curling.” Rachel Homan The team’s early jitters at the tournament were replaced by frustration with the ice and inconsistent weights over the last couple of days. The Canadians focused on the positives Tuesday evening and it paid off with a performance they can build on. Morris was very pleased and Homan was in good spirits as well. “We definitely took a step forward today and really found how we need to play,” Homan said. “The ice is tough out there but we

just have to keep playing like we did tonight and we should be fine the rest of the way.” Homan edged Italy 7-6 in the afternoon session. Canada will play Germany and Switzerland on Wednesday. Morris said he was particularly impressed with the team’s cohesiveness. “I’m really happy - we finally played a good curling game,” Morris said. “We had some great energy, we made a lot of shots, we just didn’t win it. “I’m feeling really good all of a sudden.” After 11 draws, Sigfridsson and Scotland’s Eve Muirhead share first place at 6-1, with Russia’s Anna Sidorova third at 5-2. The United States, Switzerland and Japan are tied with Canada at 4-3. The top four rinks in the 12team field make the playoffs. “We were in it together and in it right to the end,” Homan said. “So lots to take on from that game and bring to the next game. We should be fine. “If we keep playing like that, we should be fine the rest of the way.” This is Homan’s first appearance at this tournament. She’s hoping to win Canada’s first world women’s title since Jennifer Jones was victorious in 2008.

KOOTENAY ICE Ice confident in facing Oil Kings

It’s round two for the Kootenay Ice and the Edmonton Oil Kings. In a repeat of last year’s opening playoff series, the two teams will face each other again in the same fashion, with the top-seeded Eastern Conference Oil Kings hosting the Ice in Edmonton on Friday and Sunday. The defending WHL champions beat the Ice in all six regular season games last year, and swept Kootenay in four straight in the playoffs. However, things are different this time around.

While Edmonton is fielding a strong team yet again, the Oil Kings and the Ice have three wins apiece in six meetings this year, which has helped boost the club’s confidence. “We’re really excited,” said Ice forward Brock Montgomery. “We have three wins against them and that’s key going into their building. We did something remarkable after Christmas to come back, so I think everyone is excited to be in playoffs. “We’ve beat top teams before and we know that we can beat them.” Jaedon Descheneau

will get the chance to play in front of his hometown crowd for the second time in as many post season appearances, while Sam Reinhart will do battle with his older brother Griffin, who patrols the blue line for the Oil Kings. “Playoff hockey is playoff hockey, it doesn’t really matter who you’re playing— you got to bring your best game,” said Reinhart. The two teams have a split record over the regular season, however, the home team won every matchup. Edmonton outscored the Ice 16-13 over the season series, while both sides recorded a shutout victory. Looking at both teams, the statistics speak volumes. Edmonton ended the season on top of the Eastern Conference, tied for second overall in the WHL with their championship opponents last year in the Portland Winterhawks taking the regu-

lar season crown. The Oil Kings (5115-2-4) led the conference in home wins, with 25 in the column, have the top powerplay at 28.6 per cent and the top penalty kill at 87.5 per cent. Their team defence and goaltending is very stingy, allowing the fewest goals across the league. “They are the defending champions, they have 51 wins, they’re number one on the powerplay, number one on the penalty kill pretty much all year,” said Ice head coach Ryan McGill. “Obviously, we know we have our hands full, but we also want to make sure that we respect this team as much as we can, but we also want to make sure that we play to our strengths and play the game that

Proud to r u o Y t r o Supp y a n e t o o K

we know we can play.” Some statistics on the Kootenay end of things highlight the improvement of their road record. Before the Christmas break, the Ice had three wins in 15 road games. After the holiday, Kootenay collected 11 victories in 21 road games. The Ice also capped off their season with a big road win in Calgary against the Hitmen, which has added more confidence to the players in the dressing room, said Montgomery. “We didn’t have the best last month that we wanted to have, but we had a huge win against Calgary to finish off the season and I think that’s all the confidence we need going into playoffs,” Montgomery said.

Bolshoi general director rejects principal dancer’s claim on his job Associated Press

MOSCOW — The Bolshoi Theater’s general director has rejected criticism from an assertive principal dancer who is openly aspiring to take his job at the famed Russian dance theatre. Anatoly Iksanov responded Tuesday to dancer Nikolai Tsiskaridze’s claim that he feels ready to take the top job by saying that his opponent’s “fame and scandalousness’’ aren’t enough for the position.

The two men have waged an increasingly ugly public battle since the Jan. 17 acid attack on Bolshoi artistic director Sergei Filin. Iksanov has blamed Tsiskaridze for creating an atmosphere of intrigue that contributed to the attack. The dancer has accused Iksanov of using the attack to settle scores. When asked about critical statements from the dancer, Iksanov said he wouldn’t comment on “nonsense and dirt.’’

‘Bible’ producers say Internet chatter that Satan actor resembles Obama is nonsense A s s o c i at e d Pr ess

NEW YORK — The producers of the cable TV miniseries on the Bible say Internet chatter that their Satan character resembles President Barack Obama is “utter nonsense.’’ Mark Burnett and Roma Burnett said Monday the Moroccan actor who played Satan in the History channel series, Mehdi Ouzaani, has played Satanic characters in other Biblical programs long before Obama was elected president. The connection got widespread attention after talk show host

Glenn Beck last week tweeted: “Does Satan look EXACTLY like Obama? Yes!’’ History said in a statement that the network has “the highest respect’’ for Obama, and that “it’s unfortunate that anyone made this false connection.’’ “Both Mark and I have nothing but respect and love our president, who is a fellow Christian,’’ said Downey, the “Touched By an Angel’’ actress who is married to Burnett. “False statements such as these are just designed as a foolish distraction to try and discredit the beauty of

the story of the Bible.’’ Beck has actually been a big supporter of “The Bible.’’ The same tweet that pointed out the actor’s resemblance to Obama urged his followers: “Don’t miss it.’’ On Monday, Beck tweeted “Media — relax.’’ He said the observation was “funny, nothing more’’ and that the series “is 1 of my fav shows. Keep watching.’’ The five-part miniseries has been a big hit for History, reaching more than 13 million viewers for its first episode.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Innate tension causes you to make demands in your unique style. You will want to take charge if someone else isn’t doing the job. Your natural leadership characteristics emerge. You might not pick up on the subtle innuendoes in a situation. Tonight: Celebrate spring. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You might be witness to a friend -- or a situation -- getting off track. The severity of just how far off will be dependent on your attempt to help those involved gain clarity. The problem will be fixed when people are able to see the big picture. Tonight: Be clear in your choices. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Your honesty takes you to a new level of understanding, and others respond in kind. A family member might express his or her thoughts in a harsh way. Don’t take it personally. You know what you want, and you know what others want. Tonight: Buy a favorite dessert.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) You go with the flow, despite encountering difficulties and dismayed people. The news you hear could be cluttered and not totally accurate. Encourage others to brainstorm while you follow through on a nonrelated -- but equally important -- issue. Tonight: Listen to a loved one. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You can do whatever you want. Listen to news with an open mind. Your ability to understand others will emerge, and it might seem necessary to make a project run to completion. If possible, tone down your strong personality right now. Tonight: Don’t be so hard on yourself. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You like what is going on with a child or loved one. Deal with others directly, and know full well the extent of a certain problem. Your ability to honor a change will allow greater ebb and flow with a partner. This person will appreciate your efforts. Tonight: Watch out for spring fever. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

For Better or Worse

Others have a lot to say, regardless of whether you are interested in hearing their opinions. Listen to someone who has a lot to share, but do some questioning. Your schedule could become rather hectic. Go with the flow rather than get aggravated. Tonight: Say “yes” to an offer. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Realize that you might be a little less adventuresome than usual or perhaps even slightly negative. Examine your options, and then decide which direction you want to head in. Know that an attitude change will open up more possibilities. Tonight: Let your mind relax. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Greet spring with a smile. You might wonder why others are in such a tizzy. Understand that not everyone can enjoy life as you do. Try to avoid having a tiff with a loved one in the near future by trying to see his or her side. Tonight: Get into the idea of spring fever. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You could be too concerned with a loved one. You also might not

be comfortable with the immediate results of a meeting. Get rid of some of your stress and/ or high energy by walking or jogging, even if it means using your lunchtime to do it. Tonight: Chill out. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You see the beauty in the day, despite everything you need to do. You might be tempted to verbally attack someone who tries to rain on your parade. If you lose your composure, don’t drive or use mechanical equipment. Tonight: Hang out with some friends. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You could be difficult without intending to be that way. A haze surrounds you and several situations. You might feel like a mouse running on a wheel that is going nowhere. Stop, if this is the case. Decide to get out of the house for a least a few hours. Tonight: Be spontaneous. BORN TODAY Film director Spike Lee (1957), ice hockey player Bobby Orr (1948), TV host Fred Rogers (1928)

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I am a teenager in the northwest. Recently, I contracted a kidney infection that was painful and needed treatment. I didn’t know what I had and wasn’t familiar with the symptoms, so the only thing I said to my parents was that I didn’t feel well. After a few days, it got so bad that I had to go to the emergency room. I was given a prescription and healed, but the hospital bill was $600. When the bill came, my mother read me the riot act for costing her so much. She told me I should have said something earlier and saved them some money. That was true, and I apologized. But the impression I got is that my health is not worth that much money to her. I’ve never had a good relationship with my mother, but this stung. Why would she insinuate such a thing? What should I do? -- Not as Pretty as a Penny Dear Penny: We don’t think your mother meant to imply that your health is not worth $600. Have you ever seen a parent yell at a toddler for running into the street? It’s not out of anger. It’s because they were worried to death by what might have happened. We think this was your mother’s reaction. Your illness turned out to be curable, but it could have been something far worse. Becoming angry at the bill was emotionally safer than facing her fears of losing you altogether. Please forgive her outburst. Dear Annie: I was married for 47 years to a man who did not want me making friends outside his family. Unfortunately, his family didn’t much care for me. I acquiesced to his wishes (pre-women’s rights). When he died, I tried volunteering in order to make friends, but I guess I am programmed to push people away. I correspond via email with a few folks, but no one wants to take the friendship further. I let my son have my house and moved back to my hometown into a retirement place that my son convinced me would be beneficial. But they sold him a bill of goods about the activities here. There are none. No one wants to be friends. They say good morning, but even my invites go unanswered. I would like to move, but I can’t afford it, and no one will help me pack up. People are full of suggestions -- go to the mall, go to church. (I tried that, filled out a visitor card and never heard from them.) I’ll be 70 soon, and I feel life isn’t worth living if I have to be alone. -- Florida Dear Florida: You sound terribly depressed, and this may be part of the reason you have trouble making friends. People are attracted to those who are upbeat and energetic, and those traits are difficult for you to display when you feel so low. Talk to your doctor about an antidepressant. Ask someone in charge whether you could help organize a group outing, perhaps to a movie or a play. Do some volunteer work where your help will be appreciated and you can spend time getting to know others and practicing your social skills. You’ve spent years being “programmed” to push people away. Attracting them won’t happen overnight. Consider yourself a work in progress. Dear Annie: This is in reply to “A LongTerm Care Employee,” who admonished families for not bringing new clothing to nursing home residents. There is another factor at play here: dementia. My mother wears the same clothes over and over. She has new clothes in her closet. She doesn’t recognize them and thinks they are someone else’s clothes. I have tried to remove the most worn items, but she stands over me and says, “No, I wear that.” This perceived problem is not always what it seems to be. -- Kentucky Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Dresses worn by Diana, Princess of Wales, have been auctioned off for $1.2 million. Left: Diana wore this Catherine Walker dress on a state visit to Brazil in 1991.

Princess Diana’s iconic gowns sell for $1.2 million ASSOCIATED PRESS

LONDON — A collection of some of Princess Diana’s most memorable evening gowns has fetched over 800,000 pounds ($1.2 million) at a London auction. Kerry Taylor Auctions say the highlight — a velvet navy gown Diana wore in 1985 to a White House gala dinner, where she danced with Hollywood star John Travolta — was sold for 240,000 pounds to a British man.

The Victor Edelstein gown came slightly below the expected maximum price, which was set at 300,000 pounds. Other dresses at Tuesday’s vintage fashion auction included several Catherine Walker gowns worn for state visits around the world. Diana sold dozens of her dresses at a New York charity auction at the suggestion of her son, Prince William, in 1997 — months before she died in a Paris car crash.

Bronx Zoo hatches three rare maleo chicks ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — The Bronx Zoo says it’s hatched three rare maleo chicks. The birds are native to Indonesia. The zoo studied and recreated the special conditions they need to successfully incubate. What do they look like? Zoo curator Nancy Clum describes them on a YouTube video posted by the Wildlife Conservation Society. To her, a maleo resembles a chicken with a fan tail, a pink belly — and a football helmet on the back of its head.

LOS ANGELES — When NASA’s twin spacecraft Ebb and Flow crashed into the moon last year, scientists did not count on seeing the aftermath. On Tuesday, the space agency released before-and-after pictures of the lunar north pole where Ebb and Flow came to rest. Months after the back-toback, mission-ending dives, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter flew over the crash sites and imaged the final resting spots. Ebb and Flow broke into smithereens upon impact and pinpointing the small craters they carved was difficult, said

Arizona State University researcher Mark Robinson, who operates the orbiter’s camera. Ebb and Flow deliberately plunged into a lunar mountain in December after mapping the moon’s gravity field in unprecedented detail. The location was chosen because it was far away from the Apollo landings and other historic sites. Since the finale occurred in the dark, telescopes from Earth did not capture it. Even the reconnaissance orbiter had to wait until sunlight streamed to the northern lunar region. Launched in 2011, the space-

craft spent nearly a year flying in formation, exclusively collecting gravitational data. Among the discoveries: The lunar crust is much thinner and more battered than scientists had imagined. Initially flying at 56 kilometres above the lunar surface, the spacecraft dipped lower and lower in altitude during the $487 million mission. Scientists are still poring through the last chunk of data beamed back just before their demise. The Ebb and Flow crash sites were named in honour of mission team member, Sally Ride,

Orphaned polar bear cub gets care at Alaska Zoo, before new home ASSOCIATED PRESS

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — An orphaned polar cub is making its temporary home at the Alaska Zoo in Anchorage. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service spokesman Bruce Woods says the bear’s mother was killed March 12 on Alaska’s northwest coast, but it wasn’t immediately clear if the shooting was subsistence or defence related. Woods says the man who shot the bear brought the cub to authorities, and it was ultimately transferred to Anchorage for care. The cub is about 3 or 4 months old and weighs just over 18 pounds (8 kilograms). Courtesy the Alaska Zoo, John Gomes — AP Photo The bear isn’t currently on display. The wildlife service will eventually This photo provided by the Alaska Zoo and taken March 12, place the cub somewhere else since the 2013, in Anchorage, Alaska, shows Kali, an orphaned polar Alaska Zoo already has two polar bears. bear cub who is being cared for at the zoo.

NEW YORK — The Statue of Liberty, closed since Superstorm Sandy damaged the island where it stands, will reopen to the public in time for Independence Day, officials said Tuesday. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar announced the timeline for the reopening along with U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer of New York. “Hurricane Sandy inflicted major damage on facilities that support the Statue of Liberty,’’ Salazar said. “Based on the tremendous progress we have made, Lady Liberty will be open to the public in time for the July 4th celebration.’’ The statue itself was spared in the late October storm, but its surrounding island was badly damaged. Railings broke, paving stones were torn up and buildings were flooded. The storm

also destroyed boilers, sewage pumps and electrical systems on the island. As much as three-fourths of Liberty Island’s 12 acres (5 hectares) was flooded, officials estimated, with water reaching as high as 8 feet (2.5 metres). An exact opening date wasn’t set. Before the statue can reopen, a security screening process for visitors must be worked out with the New York Police Department. Salazar said an announcement was expected in the next week or so. About 3.7 million people visited the statue in 2011, making it the 19th most visited national park. Schumer emphasized how important it was to the New York economy to have the statue open. “Being open for the summer tourism season isn’t just import-

ant symbolically, it’s a boon to the city’s economy and businesses, as the statue attracts millions of tourists from all over the world to our shores,’’ he said. Sandy came one day after the Statue of Liberty’s 126th birthday and the reopening of the crown, which had been closed for a year for a $30 million upgrade to fire alarms, sprinkler systems and exit routes. The storm also inflicted major damage on nearby Ellis Island. More than 1 million historical artifacts and documents were moved because of the impossibility of maintaining the climate-controlled environment necessary to preserve them. A reopening date for Ellis Island hasn’t been set, National Park Service Northeast Region Director Dennis Reidenbach said.
