What’s next for strugging non-profit? Youth Centre not currently open; hopes for part time by Sept. C AROLYN GR ANT editor@dailybulletin.ca

The Kimberley Youth Centre has operated under many names, from Lee Haskell Centre to Sparks, but it has the distinction of being the longest running youth centre in British Columbia. However, for the past few months the Youth Chris Newel photo

Dynamiters planning next season C AROLYN GR ANT editor@dailybulletin.ca

It was a season with some highs and lows, but it ended on a high note with the Kimberley Dynamiters making the playoffs. Team President Dave Smith and the rest of the organization hope to carry that momentum into next season. “We feel we ended the year on a posi-

tive note,” Smith said. “We are looking forward to next year.” Resumes are now being accepted for the General Manager/Head Coach position. Information on applications is available at kimberleydynamiters.net The deadline for applications is April 5 and the position would start immediately as pre-season planning has already begun. Next up for the Dynamiters is the fundraising Bull-A-Rama event in May. Watch

the Bulletin for more information on that event and other fundraisers. Registration for Summer Conditioning and Identifcation Camp is now open as well. That camp will be held in Cranbrook at Western Financial Centre from Friday, August 9 to Sunday, August 11. Only 60 players and eight goalies will be looked at. For further information on the camp, contact Dave Smith at 250-427-4439, email cdlrs@telus.net or check the website.

Centre has been closed, and in the past few years it has operated inconsistently, says the Chair of the Youth Centre board, Josh Lockhart. Lockhart visited Council this week to update them on plans at the Youth Centre, and to ask for an advance on the City’s yearly grant to help with staff wages and past due utilities and insurance bills. He wasn’t going to go into a sob story on past difficulties, he said, but rather focus on plans for the future.

Rough roads C AROLYN GR ANT editor@dailybulletin.ca

Residents of Levirs Avenue have presented Kimberley Mayor and Council with a petition expressing frustration over the condition of their street. “For the last few years the pot holes are so many and so deep that there is no way around it,” the petition reads. “We would like to see our tax dollars at work and have the street paved. Also, if damage to our vehicles can be certified by a mechanic to road conditions, we would collectively hold the City responsible.” “It appears to be signed by everyone who lives on Levirs except myself,” said Mayor Ron McRae. The petition was referred to the Manager of Public Works, who will respond.

C AROLYN GR ANT editor@dailybulletin.ca

The Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life is scheduled for Saturday, May 25 at the College of the Rockies in Cranbrook from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. And though Kimberley doesn’t host its own event anymore, that doesn’t mean Kimberley residents aren’t more than welcome to participate, says Betty Ann Price from the Cancer Society. “We would love to see more teams from Kimberley,” she said. Although the main objective of the Relay For Life is to raise money for cancer research and cancer patients, the event is held to spread cancer awareness, celebrate the lives of survivors, remember those who lost their lives to cancer, and unite a community in the fight against cancer. Teams walk continuously for 12 hours, with at least one member on

One of the more moving parts of a Relay are the luminaries in memory of cancer patients. the track at all times. The Cranbrook Relay is accepting team registration now and there are a couple of incentive programs for early registration. Between April 1 and April 15 every Relay team

will receive 1 entry for every “grand” raised. On April 15th two winners will be drawn, and they will each walk away with a $1,000 Scotiabank team donation. If you’re team raises $5,000 you will receive 5 entries.

In honor of the 75th anniversary of the Canadian Cancer Society, Air Canada has donated 10 tickets for travel in North America. All teams participating in Relay For Life 2013 that raise $7,500 or more will be entered

From Page 1 “The Youth Centre has value to the City,” Lockhart said. “You may ask how can it have value if it is closed, but the fact that you have people asking about it shows its impact. “It serves youth, gives them a safe place.” Lockhart says in the month before Christmas when the Centre was open, 64 youth visited. “We want to be self-sustaining,” he said, adding that it costs approximately $75,000 each year to operate the Centre. “We get $25,000 from the City and the rest of the year we are scrambling to fill the gap. We would like to be more consistent.” Right now the Board is planning to have the Centre open part-time by the time school begins next September. “When we receive the funds from the City, we are at the break even point,” Lockhart said. “In September we would start with part time hours. We have to be consistent so the community knows what to expect.” He said it hadn’t yet been worked out what part time would look like — full days two or three times a week or a couple of hours a day. Council couldn’t promise Lockhart anything but told him the Youth Centre’s request would be part of their budget deliberations which are currently underway. Coun. Bev Middlebrook who is the Youth Centre’s executive director was not present at the meeting.

to be finalized in the second quarter of 2013. “This transaction supports the continuing transformation of the company and the reshaping of its business portfolio,” said Tembec’s CEO James Lopez. The Skookumchuck pulp mill was established in 1968 by Crestbrook Forest Industries. Tembec purchased Crestbrook’s mills in 1999. Paper Excellence Canada is a privately owned group of companies based in Vancouver. It now owns six

mills in Canada: in B.C., as well as Skookumchuck, it owns mills in Howe Sound and Mackenzie. It owns two mills in Saskatchewan: Meadow Lake and Prince Albert. It has one in Abercrombie, Nova Scotia. Outside Canada, it has two mills in France and one in Germany. Paper Excellence has the capacity to produce close to two million tonnes of pulp and 550,000 tonnes of paper, and it employs about 2,000 people. The 290 employees

The Skookumchuck pulp mill will change ownership within the next three months. Tembec reached an agreement on Tuesday, March 26 with Vancouver-based Paper Excellence Canada to sell the Northern bleached softwood kraft (NBSK) pulp mill and its related assets and liabilities for $89 million, including working capital. There are 290 people working at the pulp mill. Skookumchuck was the last mill Tembec operated in the East Kootenay, after it closed its Cranbrook planer mill in 2010, and sold the Canal Flats and Elko mills to Canfor in 2011. The sale is expected

News from the Kimberley Garden Club

Submit ted by: Marilee Quist

It must be spring, even though we had a nice little snowfall on the Spring Equinox! I have Crocus blooming in my south-facing foundation bed here in Marysville, and other spring bulbs including Tulips, Daffodils, Hya-

cinths and Dwarf Iris are poking their heads up. Even my fall-blooming Sedums have decided it’s time to emerge for another year. Now that the snow has pretty well all disappeared, it’s time to sweep the gravel off the curbside lawn and out of the curbside rockery. At our March meet-

ing, we talked about the various types of tender bulbs (summer-blooming), where to get them, when to plant them, how to care for them, and when to dig them up for the winter. There is a wide range of bulbs for all tastes from the more common Canna Lilies, Dahlias, Begonias and Gladiolus, to the ex-

otic, such as the Orchid Pansy, Baboon Flower, Blood Lily, Chinese Lantern Lily - all hardy to tropical climates. Still, it’s nice to know what’s out there if one wants to experiment! I may just break down and get some more tender bulbs. The flowers in pictures look so beautiful!

Regardless of what kind of annual flowers and herbs local residents grow, at our April 10th meeting, we are going to discuss growing and using edible herbs and flowers. Some of the common edible flowers one might use to brighten up a summer salad are Nasturtiums, Pansies, Calendula (Pot Marigold) and Snapdragons. Violets can be crystallized in sugar water and used to decorate desserts. Squash blossoms can be battered and fried, stuffed and baked and used in a wide variety of ways. If you would like to learn more about this subject, we welcome you to join us at our April 10th meeting, The Garden Club meets the second Wednesday of the month, from 7-9 pm in

the Selkirk High School

Edible flowers such as squash blossoms will be under discussion in April. Library from October through May. For more information on our meetings, call Nola at 250-427-1948. The Garden Club has web space at http://www.kootenaygardening.com. There are several pages in the Kimberley Garden Club section listing deer-resistant plants. In addition to hosting pages for the Cranbrook, Kimberley and Trail Garden Clubs, this

website is incredibly informative with a wealth of gardening information and techniques. I have now gone through my old and new collections of annual flowers and have actually started several varieties of flowers and two varieties of tomatoes. Of course, being a slightly impatient person, I have been checking them daily, even though I know nothing will be up yet. My pretext is that I need to make sure the starter soil I planted them in doesn’t dry out under my grow light! In the next 4-5 days, I hope to be outside, happily cleaning up dead perennial foliage and anticipating the blooms to come in several months. Happy Gardening.

Earth Hour saves power

New, big screen delivered to Centre 64 C AROLYN GR ANT editor@dailybulletin.ca

In the true spirit of community cooperation, Centre 64 now has a Daylight 108x192” Tensioned Cosmopolitan electric front projection screen, thanks in part to Wildsight. “We needed a new screen at Centre 64, one that would be there permanently and just tuck away above the stage when it wasn’t in use,” said Carol Fergus from the Arts Council. “We ordered one that would work for slideshows and presentations, but Wildsight said return that one, we’ll pay for the upgrade for a full size screen that can show movies.” Wildsight, along with other community groups, often host movies at Centre 64.

Cranbrook and Kimberley joined communities all over the world to mark Earth Hour on Saturday, March 23 at 8:30 p.m. Hosted by the World Wildlife Fund, the global initiative began in 2007 and is the single, largest, symbolic mass participation event in the world. Earth Hour asks people to switch off unnecessary lights and electronics for one hour to show concern for the environment. The initiative’s goal is to mobilize people to take action on climate change. Around the world, 7,001 cities and towns in 152 countries participate each year. Meanwhile, across B.C., 136 megawatt hours of electricity were saved during Earth Hour on Saturday, which reduced the provincial electricity load by 1.95 per cent - the equivalent of turning off more than 10 million 12.5-watt LED light bulbs. The total provincial energy savings from Earth Hour participation since 2008 is 500.27 megawatt hours of electricity — the equivalent of turning off 40 million 12.5-watt LED light bulbs.

Volunteers maneuver the new big screen for Centre 64. A hole had to be cut in the wall of the building to get it in.

Welcome back, Barry, from 2103 Readers, let me draw your attention to our 2103 Readers’ Choice Awards (see enclosed supplement). What’s that you say? I have the date wrong in the banner headline? Not so. That’s what my bosses said to me. “What you meant to say,” they informed me through gritted teeth, “was ‘Welcome to the 2013 Readers’ Choice Awards.’” Dear reader, I said the same to them as I say to you. “I meant what I said and I said what I meant. An elephant’s faithful one hundred per cent.” “It’s still 2013,” my bosses informed me, like they should know. “Then how do you explain my flying car in the parking lot?” I riposted. What happened was this. I had been working away on the Readers’ Choice supplement for days. The ballots kept pouring in. I kept counting and tabulating until my eyes were crossing in my head. I dozed off, head down on my desk … I awoke much, much later, feeling a stiffness in my bones like I’d never experienced. I was alone in the office, except for some blue collar type across the room, installing what seemed to be some manner of cabinet. “Excuse me,” I said. “Where is everybody?” He gave a mighty start. “You!” he shouted. “You’re awake! You’re awake!” “Eh?” I said. “I can’t believe I’m the first to say ‘good morning’ to you,” he continued. “You fell

asleep over the Readers’ Choice Awards supplement, and never woke up. Ninety years, and here you are.” “Why didn’t anyone wake me up?” I demanded. “It looked like you needed the sleep,” he said. “People have been saying that for 90 years, every time they close to you (which Barry passed happened less and less freCoulter quently). “By the way,” he said. “We’re under standing orders that if we ever see you awake, to point out the rest of the Readers’ Choice Awards ballots still need tabulating. Too bad you didn’t finish before you took your little kip. They’re through there.” He pointed at a door. “There are about seven million to count, as I understand.” “If no one was going to wake me up to finish the supplement, why didn’t they stop printing the ballots?” “Don’t ask me. I’m just the IT guy in charge of teleportation. Hence this new teleportation machine.” He pointed at the cabinet he was tinkering with. “I thought newspapers were supposed to have gone extinct long ago,” I said. “You thought wrong,” he said. “Anyway, they were — they are — waiting for you to finish the supplement before making the newspaper completely on-line, converting the press to a newly fashionable diesel-powered calliope and retiring the fleet of flying trucks.” “Flying cars! We have those these days?”

I asked in wonderment. “Oh yes, just a device you attach to the drive train of your vehicle,” he said. “They function in the same manner as fourwheel-drive. They’re small little devices, but expensive. There’s lots of theft problems, thieves ripping them out from under people’s cars.” “Seven million ballots,” I said. “Say, have time machines been invented yet?” “Oh yes,” my interlocutor said. “Home Hardware has a sale on them right now, in fact.” “What, Home Hardware’s still around?” I marvelled. “Oh, most businesses have thrived,” he said. “Apparently, after the provincial election of 2013, all economic problems were solved.” “Say, who won that election?” I asked. “I don’t even know. I dropped out of school in Grade 3, to make all that good money in the high tech industries.” “I see,” I said. “Excuse me, I’ll be right back.” I dashed out of the Townsman office to go get my time machine, but first I ripped the flying car device out from under the IT guy’s car. Let him travel back in time and confront me. I’ll just deny it. So to make a long story short, dear reader, to me it really is 2103. I just couldn’t face counting the rest of those ballots. Who can blame me? Barry Coulter is the once and future editor of the Cranbrook Daily Townsman. For rides in his flying car, email barry@dailytownsman.com

Pope Francis, and a self-referential church

I have refrained from writing about the election of Pope Francis. But I have to say that the new Pope has gotten my attention. My heart has been buoyed by the promise I’ve seen in his words and actions since being elected. He seems to be a humble man who chose to live simply in a small apartment instead of the archbishop’s palace in Buenos Aires, and who travelled on buses and trams instead of in the church limousine. A theological conservative, Pope Francis has shown himself to be a man of compassion. It’s a good combination, reminiscent of Archbishop Oscar Romero of El Salvador or Dorothy Day of the Catholic Worker Movement. In Buenos Aires, he showed real compassion for HIV victims, and he sternly rebuked priests who refused to baptize children born out of wedlock. There are also reports of the new pope being a “bridge builder” between Jesuits and other orders and, more widely, between conservatives and liberals in the church. How welcome that would be. Two quotes from this formerly unknown cardinal stand out for me. The first is about the poor and the world’s massive inequality. “We live in the most unequal part of the world, which has grown the most yet reduced misery the least,” he said at a 2007 Latin American bishops meeting. “The unjust distribution of goods persists, creating a situation of social sin that cries out to Heaven and limits the possibilities of a fuller life for so many of our brothers.”

As Pope, he now has the ability to shift the church’s direction in significant ways on a much larger scale. I pray he has the strength to do so. The second quote was about clerical privilege and insular church hierarchy. “We have to avoid the spiritual sickness of a self–referential church. It’s true that when you get out into the street, as happens to every man and woman, there can be accidents. However, if the church remains closed in on itself, Rev. Yme self–referential, it gets old. BeWoensdregt tween a church that suffers accidents in the street, and a church that’s sick because it’s self–referential, I have no doubts about preferring the former.” What a powerful insight and prophetic critique this is of what the church has become. Pope Francis calls us to focus outward, to the world. He would rather be the head of an imperfect church whose mission is focused on those beyond the walls, rather than one who seeks to appear strong or blameless at the cost of vulnerability and transparency. I dare to wonder and hope that if his preference prevails in Rome, it might even begin to change those church structures? I fervently hope and pray that a Global South pope who deliberately chooses his name from Francis of Assisi will be that agent of change. Today, we reverence Francis as a saint of the church. But in his day, he was a rebel, who felt himself called to reform the church. Today, the church needs rebuilding again, to be what the church was meant

to be. To make those changes, Pope Francis will need to address some very fundamental issues. First, the church must be transformed again to become the defender of the poorest and most vulnerable. Biblically speaking, that should be the church’s first and primary work. Sadly, the hierarchy of many churches is not well known for those primary issues today. Second, Pope Francis must address, with both compassion and justice the enormously painful reality of the church’s sexual abuse of children. The church must repent the horrible sins of pedophile priests and cover–up bishops. The church must seek reconciliation. Until that happens, the church’s reputation can never be restored. Third, the new pope must reverse and redress the Vatican’s recent censure and, in my view, mistreatment of its own sisters. These Catholic religious women around the world represent the best of Catholic social teaching. Pope Francis could and should embrace the women of the church instead of suspecting and disrespecting them. While these are enormous challenges for Pope Francis, the grace of God is sufficient for faithful church leaders to lead. And Jorge Bergoglio is said to be such a man of God — fervent in personal faith and consistent in prayer. So let us all do what the  first thing  the new Pope asked the people in the square to do: pray for him. Yme Woensdregt is Pastor at Christ Church Anglican in Cranbrook

Cranbrook papers undergoing digitalization F o r t h e Tow n s m a n/B u l l e t i n

The Cranbrook Archives, located in the large facilities of the Railway Museum, is actually a Cranbrook History Centre that is continually being improved to provide better access by the public to the resource. This resource contains tens of thousands of historic items about Cranbrook and the railway, so it is useful for museum staff when they are researching material on the historic trains and railway travel, as well as material on Cranbrook as shown by the Cranbrook History Gallery. This free gallery, also at the Museum, contains hundreds of images on local history and is easily accessible off the entrance hall. However, it’s primary function is provide historic material to Cranbrook residents to better know their roots. The resource contains photos, pamphlets, maps, books, and one of the most important — all of the old Cranbrook newspapers from 1898 (when the City began) to 1975, and which are now being digitalized by volunteer Dave Humphrey. Humphrey is spending hundreds of hours — and has supplied his own special rotary scanner — to carefully and fully scan the large pages. An example of new technology is the word-searchable PDF format the papers are scanned in. It allows specific word searches for the thousands of newspaper pages in the files. This opens up a whole new way of finding information that a while ago would have taken months, and even then some material might have been missed due to the volume of print on each page. People and business names, events and the “gossip” sections in the papers provide a wealth of information as well a s the “mood” of the

The Archives proper, which is primarily two-dimensional flat material (ie, paper), also contains a collection of historic objects about Cranbrook along with some on the railway. These objects currently use the same accession (control) chronological numbering system that the Archives uses for efficiency and due to the lack of trained staff dedicated to look after this resource. Its management and processing is done by Museum staff as time permits, and dedicated volunteers.

The Archives began in 1976 even before the railway museum, which started construction in 1977. Over the years it has been donated material that would have been lost if the Archives had not been in existence. Access to the database is through the museum website www. trainsdeluxe.com with easy links from the first page. The newspaper database is not on-line, but it is on a special computer at the Museum that the pubic can have free access to during museum hours.

KOOTENAY ICE

Oil Kings put Ice on the brink of elimination TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Ice couldn’t buy a goal on Wednesday night, and the Oil Kings likely weren’t open to entertaining any offers. Despite making Edmonton netminder Laurent Brossoit earn his pay between the pipes, the Kootenay squad wasn’t able to light the goal lamp as the Oil Kings went on to a 4-0 win at Western Financial Place. “I can’t really take all the credit,” said Brossoit, who stopped 20 shots. “My team kept them to the perimeter, I didn’t have too, too many difficult stops, but I was glad that I was seeing the puck when they did break our D and I made the stops I needed to.” The Oil Kings have now outscored the Ice 21-3 over the last four games and lead the series 3-1. While the Ice were able to generate more scoring chances this time around, the Oil Kings followed the script and used their ex-

perience to capitalize on Kootenay mistakes. Mackenzie Skapski had a much better showing than the previous night, though the scoresheet might not indicate it. All three goals that got by the Ice netminder seemed to have an element of luck for the Oil Kings that Kootenay just couldn’t replicate.

“We need to bear down. He’s a good goalie, but that’s not acceptable for us to not put a few past him.” Brock Montgomery Right off the opening face-off, Kootenay had better jump than the night before, but their discipline broke down a bit, as they gave up three powerplays within the first 10 minutes. Despite that, Kootenay was able to kill off those penalties, however, Edmonton scored on

even strength roughly seven minutes into the game, when a shot redirected a couple different times on the way to the back of the net, with Henrik Samuelsson having the last contact. The Ice did their best to respond, with Jon Martin getting the door slammed on him by Brossoit on a breakaway, while Czech import Jakub Prochazka nailed the post, after getting sprung while leaving the penalty box. “We need to bear down,” said Ice forward Brock Montgomery. “He’s a good goalie, but that’s not acceptable for us to not put a few past him. We had ample opportunities, and it’s not acceptable for myself, my linemates and my forward partners.” The Ice continued to make Brossoit work for his shutout in the second period, as Luke Philp had a pair of glorious chances, but wasn’t able to finish on either. While Kootenay poured on the pressure, they also got sent to the

Bill Bennett OUR CHOICE FOR THE EAST KOOTENAY Victoria is a long way from the East Kootenay, both in distance and in culture. Sometimes it seems that the things we value in rural BC aren’t priorities in the Lower Mainland. That’s why we need an MLA who is strong, passionate and knows how to get things done. Bill hikes, hunts, fishes, quads, snowmobiles, skis and golfs. Bill Bennett understands outdoor issues and shares our values here in the East Kootenay and he’s proven he’ll stand up for them.

goal of the playoffs, after staying off the scoresheet in Edmonton’s first two home games. The young 18-year-old sniper had 38 goals and 23 assists in the regular season, and is expected to be a first-round selection in the upcoming NHL Entry Draft.

“I was extremely nervous, coming into those first two games, but I’m back to myself, relaxed, I’m smiling and having fun,” said Lazar. “The puck’s going in for me and I’m looking to continue that.” The Ice seemed destined to end the period

with a two-goal deficit, however, some miscommunication between Skapski and his defence allowed the Edmonton forecheck to pounce on a puck deep inside the zone, and Edgars Kulda scored on a goal mouth scramble.

Registration for Gran Fondo cycling event goes online TOWNSMAN STAFF

Registration is now online for the first annual Kootenay Rockies Gran Fondo cycling event and the applications are already starting to trickle in. Glenn Dobie, chair of the Gran Fondo event, said roughly a dozen names have trickled in, and expects the 500 spots to fill up by the end of early registration at the end of June. “We wanted it to appeal to every type of cyclist,” said Dobie. “The 50-km route appeals to people who want to go for a nice ride with family or friends then have a nice meal afterwards at St. Eugene.” The event—the first of it’s kind in the East Kootenays—is billed as a ride, not a race. Par-

ticipants have the option of signing up to 50-, 100-, and 150-kilometre courses around Cranbrook and Kimberley, with the St. Eugene Golf Resort and Casino as the start and end point. Dobie said he hopes the event adds to others in the region, such as the Wasa Triathlon, Round the Mountain and Six in the Stix. “We wanted it to appeal to every type of cyclist,” Dobie said. “The 50km route appeals to people who want to go for a nice ride with family or friends then have a nice meal afterwards at St. Eugene.” The routes will be clearly marked, and aid stations will be positioned throughout all three courses for riders to stock up on nutrition

and water, as well as troubleshoot any mechanical or medical issues that crop up. Dobie and the organizing committee— namely the Cranbrook Sunrise Rotary Club— are hoping to take proceeds raised from the event and reinvest it back into community initiatives and projects. “Funds raised by the event will be used to enhance and maintain the Rails to Trails system as well as support other local community service projects,” said Dobie. The event is being sponsored by the St. Eugene Golf Resort and Casino, along with Western Financial Group. Anyone interested in registering for the event can visit the website at www.krgf.ca.

Avs hand out year-end awards Tre vor Cr awley Sports Editor

The College of the Rockies Avalanche volleyball teams handed out their year end awards in a ceremony on Saturday at the Heritage Inn. The men’s Avalanche wrapped up their season in the provincial Pacwest Championships at the end of February, when the Capilano University Blues—the eventual champi-

ons—beat them in straight sets. The women’s team had a tough season, with three wins throughout the season, which wasn’t enough to put them into the championships, which were hosted at the College of the Rockies. In addition to the team awards, the Sun City Coachlines First Year student Athletic Award was up for grabs, going to Tyler Remenda.

The Ice tried to keep their offence going in the final period, but the Oil Kings went on lockdown, as Brossoit and his defence kept Kootenay at bay. With just over 2:30 remaining in the game, Kootenay pulled Skapski, and managed to have some pressure in Edmonton’s zone for a bit, but Griffin Reinhart scored into an empty net to seal the deal at 4-0. Edmonton had one powerplay goal in seven chances, while holding off the Ice in five opportunities, and keeping their penalty killing at 100 per cent in the whole series. Right after the game, the two teams got onto their respective busses to make the trip up to Edmonton for Game Five of the series on Fri-

day night. Hopefully that won’t include any more wildlife encounters, as the Oil Kings bus nailed an elk on the way down to Cranbrook. “I think we’ll be going home a bit slower tonight and try to avoid that,” Lazar said.

Seniors, stop worrying about your pocketbooks. by Kathleen Thomas For many seniors, there are common concerns about lifestyle as they age. Many wonder how they will manage their own homes in their older years or what kind of personal care they might be able to afford. For seniors on a limited income, these concerns can be especially pressing as limited resources tend to mean fewer options. Fortunately, a new model of retirement living is helping to alleviate those fears. Retirement living communities across the country are working with provincial, federal and local authorities to make seniors of all income levels equally welcome in their facilities. In Kimberley, Garden View Village has made a commitment to low-income seniors a priority.

Beyond the suite is access to a variety of common areas which include a games room, spa room, library, dining room, cof-

fee room, crafts room, hair salon and lounges. All areas are easily accessible, full of interesting people, engaging activities and share a wonderful sense of community. Rents for allotted low income suites start as low as $500 per month at Garden View Village and include weekly housekeeping, a wide selection of recreational and social activities, 24 hour emergency monitoring, shuttle bus service, and hot, delicious meals prepared by on-site chefs. Each meal is served by cheerful wait staff in a central dining room, with a cozy fireplace where guests and families are always welcome. In addition to the hospitality services, residents can enjoy peace of mind knowing they don’t have to worry about extra bills because all utilities including water, sewer, heat, air conditioning and cable are also included.

Flames trade captain Jarome Iginla to Penguins Donna Spencer Canadian Press

CALGARY - The Calgary Flames have traded away the face of the franchise. In his 16th NHL season in a Flames uniform, captain Jarome Iginla was dealt to the

Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday for college forwards Kenneth Agostino and Ben Hanowski and Pittsburgh’s firstround pick at the 2013 draft. Iginla is scheduled to address Calgary media about his trade Thurs-

day morning. He made history with Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby at the 2010 Winter Olympics. Iginla assisted on Crosby’s overtime winner versus the United States that gave Canada the gold medal in men’s hockey.

“On the doorstep, over the phone and at events, I am speaking with voters of all ages, and they are looking for a change in government and a change in MLA.”

Iginla’s departure from Calgary felt anti-climactic, despite his stature in the NHL. The Flames (13-15-4) quickly played themselves into a position of seller this lockout-shortened this season. Currently 14th in the Western Conference, they face a fourth straight season of playoff-free hockey. With the 35-year-old Iginla in the final year of his contract and the playoffs slipping away for the Flames, it seemed inevitable that Calgary would have to move their all-time leading scorer and get what return they could. “We as an organization owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to Jarome, not only for what he did for the franchise during his tenure as a player here and as our captain, but also for the fact that now as we recognize that despite our best efforts, and despite the work we’ve put in, we’ve fallen short of the goals we set for our-

selves as an organization,” Flames general manager Jay Feaster said. Both Agostino, a junior at Yale, and Hanowski, a senior at St. Cloud, are both playing in the NCAA’s Frozen Four later this week. “In these two players we’ve gotten two players we believe are going to play in the National Hockey League and are going to contribute and will play for us for a long time,” Feaster said. “We add size up front, which is something that we as an organization need. We don’t have a lot of it in the system right now.” Iginla signed a fiveyear contract extension worth US$35 million in 2007. He’s eligible for unrestricted free agency on his 36th birthday July 1. After years of saying he wanted to stay in Calgary and win, Iginla facilitated his departure by softening the no-movement clause in his contract. Lately, the Edmonton native con-

ceded he didn’t have the patience to be part of a re-build of the Flames. When approached by Feaster about a possible trade, Iginla provided a select list of teams he would consent to join. “We respect very, very much the fact that Jarome worked with us to enable this to come about,” Feaster said. The deal was consummated during Calgary’s 4-3 win over Colorado on Wednesday night. To protect their asset, the Flames scratched Iginla from the lineup prior to the game while Feaster negotiated. The GM said three teams made offers. The Flames beat the Avalanche 4-3 in their first game without Iginla. Fans could be heard speculating as they walked into the Saddledome before the game on possible destinations for him. There were a few cheers during the game of “Iggy, Iggy, Iggy, Oi, Oi, Oi.” Calgary’s current

ownership group has been unwilling to strip the team down after recent failures to get into the playoffs. The franchise is now at a crossroads without the man with whom the team has been so identified for so many years. Iginla was one of the NHL’s premiere power forwards during his years in Calgary. The six-foot-one, 210-pound winger is one of just seven players in league history to post 11 straight seasons of 30 goals or more. Iginla was twice a 50goal scorer for Calgary and a winner of the Art Ross (2002) and Maurice (Rocket) Richard trophies (2002, 2004). He’s off his usual pace this season with nine goals and 13 assists in 31 games. Iginla was held off the scoresheet in his final game as a Flame on Tuesday in Chicago, but he scored the game winner Sunday at the Saddledome in a 3-2 victory against St. Louis.

Sports Heat’s winning streak ends at 27 with loss in Chicago Andre w Seligman Associated Press

CHICAGO - No last-second shot. No fourth-quarter rally. No record for LeBron James and the Miami Heat, either. The Heat’s bid for NBA history ended Wednesday night when their 27-game winning streak was snapped by the Chicago Bulls 10197, setting off a raucous celebration inside United Center. Miami finished six shy of the 33-game record held by the 197172 Los Angeles Lakers. Later, James said there was no shame in falling short. “It’s one of the best that this league has ever seen,” James said, referring to the streak that began on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 3. “We recognized that and rightfully so.” James tried to spur yet another comeback in the final minutes, getting mad after a rough foul. But the

reigning MVP could never get the defending champions even or, more importantly, ahead. With only twotenths of a second left, James took the final inbounds pass in his own end, dropped the ball to allow time to expire, turned and walked toward the exit. Luol Deng scored 28 points, Carlos Boozer added 21 points and 17 rebounds, and the Bulls brought the Heat’s stampede to a screeching halt. Miami’s superstar did all he could to keep the run going, scoring 32 points and even collecting a flagrant foul during a physical final few minutes. “We haven’t had a chance to really have a moment to know what we just did,” James said. “We had a moment, just very fortunate, very humbling and blessed to be part of this team and be part of a streak like that.” The Heat hadn’t lost

since the Pacers beat them in Indianapolis on Feb. 1. But after grinding out some close wins lately, including a rally from 27 down in Cleveland, no one counted them out until the final buzzer. For the better part of

two months, they were the NBA’s comeback kings. They erased seven double-digit deficits during the streak. They found themselves trailing in the fourth quarter 11 times, and won them all.

Not Wednesday. “We understand, probably more so later on in our careers, the significance of that. And then that was it,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “We took that moment to acknowledge it, to acknowledge

each other, that experience, but it was never about the streak. We have a bigger goal, but also right now, it’s about ‘Are we getting better?”’ They walked off the floor stoically, not exchanging any hand-

shakes or pleasantries with the Bulls. James slapped high-fives with a couple teammates and coaches, then glared at a fan who grabbed his head as he headed toward the tunnel leading to the visitors’ locker room.

Cara Luft playing inaugural Lotus show Award-winning songstress playing local bookstore Wednesday, April 3 F e r dy B e l l a n d

“I’ve been blown away by the reviews of Darlingford, here and overseas,” says singer-songwriter Cara Luft, whose performing in Cranbrook April 3, one year after her last visit here. “They’re calling it my strongest yet; a how-to manual for aspiring folk players; a desert island disc; one of the best folk records of 2012.” The reputation as one of Canada’s leading modern singer-songwriters is well-deserved. As a founding member of the Wailin’ Jennies (with Ruth Moody and Nicky Mehta), Luft provided the rock-inspired spark which propelled that band into international popularity in the early 2000s, culminating in the 2004 Juno Award for Best Canadian Folk Artist for their album 40 Days. Feeling constricted by the sudden industry demands and growing disillusioned with careerist tensions within the band, Luft opted to leave the Jennies to re-pursue the solo career she had before joining forces with Mehta and Moody. Luft recorded and released The Light Fantastic in 2007 and is currently reaping the rewards of her fourth album Darlingford. Romantic agony is the underlying theme of much of her work, but Luft converts her pain into gain. “Whatever anguish we’ve experienced, we need it out of our bodies in order to truly heal and find perspective,” she said. “We have to move

through whatever we’re dealing with. For me, it’s playing and singing and writing songs. It requires concentration and focus and creative energy, as well as physically strumming and picking up that pen. “When I’ve been hit with something and I don’t want it to eat me alive emotionally and mentally, I need to purge it through music. Luft’s reinventions of traditional English folk songs provide a smart balance to her recorded repertoire; she makes the connection between the Western European folk past and the North American folk present. “My current listening tastes are similar to what I grew up with and appreciated as both a child and young person,” Luft said. “There was a lot of traditional folk in our household, along with the Beatles, Buddy Holly, Stan Rogers, even Neil Diamond. So yes, my tastes are pretty much still the same.” Luft’s drive and determination have taken her tens of thousands of kilometres, far and away beyond her hometown of Winnipeg. “I’m very lucky to visit so many new and interesting places and be able to perform in all sorts of unique and different venues.” Unique and different certainly describes Luft’s upcoming Cranbrook performance on Wednesday April 3, at Lotus Books. With continuous experience, Luft has much to say about the modern realities and joys of the touring Canadian folk musician.

“I always encourage others to play and create music, and keep folk music alive and well in our society,” says Luft. “As a career choice, it’s a really hard life, and music’s an industry that’s constantly changing. There are more roots artists out there making records and touring than ever before, and the competition’s stiff. There are few opportunities out there and too many people grappling over those very small pieces of the pie. That being said, when you’re bit with the music bug it’s really hard to ignore it. “My best advice is to find balance between performing and other

parts of your life.” Luft described her plans for the near and far future. “I want to carve out time to start writing a new album,” she said, “but I’m not rushing it. Darlingford was the hardest project I’ve done, due to the time, energy, concentration and focus I gave to it. I’m not anxious to return to the studio quite yet. “Darlingford is just being released overseas, and the rest of 2013 will see me over in Europe several times to support it.” Cara Luft performs live in concert Wednesday, April 3, at Lotus Books (33 - 10th Ave.S., Cranbrook), 8 p.m.

BUSINESS TO BUSINESS Our Mission Statement:

Fostering a healthy business climate in Cranbrook & District

the PROBLEM SOLVER Gary Knight

I

n past issues of The Problem Solver I h av e d i s c u s s e d some of the issues around Joint Ownership. This area has surfaced again in my office so I thought I would tackle joint ownership again as one aspect of inter vivos estate planning. The importance of joint ownership is the fact that assets passing by jointure do not form part of the decease’s estate and therefore no probate fees. Probate fees have become a

concern for people in recent years. These fees are based on the gross value of the estate at death and are levied as follows: no fee for estates having a value of less than $25,000; $6 per $1000 for estates valued between $25,001 and $50,000; and $14 per $1000 for estates over $50,000. There is also an administration fee of $208 for estates over $25,000. For this reason, people often wish to transfer assets into the joint names of themselves and the intended beneficiaries.

Inter Vivos Planning – Joint Ownership There is a mistaken impression that transferring assets into joint names will only result in a gift upon death. However, the transfer of an asset into joint names may constitute an immediate gift. If this is the case then the following will occur: a loss of sole control of the asset; if the asset is land, then you will not be able to sell, mortgage or otherwise dispose of the land without consent of the coowner; the asset becomes an asset of the joint tenant and subject to claims of creditors and separating spouses; the joint owner can sever the jointure, thus

ApriL 2013

converting ownership to “tenancy in common” and sell or mortgage his or her share; and there may be immediate income tax consequences upon the transfer into joint names. Some people I have contact with wish to make arrangements with a potential joint owner (future beneficiary) that the future beneficiary will hold the asset in trust until death occurs. Such an arrangement must be carefully documented. If this is not done then problems can occur after death. Usually the asset falls back into the estate and if the estate has to have probate then the asset is included with all the other estate

property and probate fees applied. Transferring assets directly in jointure to someone other than a spouse may be appropriate for someone who is terminally ill and death is imminent. Another example is a parent and an only child who have always lived together. When considering this strategy please consult with your lawyer and accountant and always put your intentions in writing.

From the B.C Chamber of Commerce. While the BC Chamber concurs with much of the focus of the Canadian Chamber we would add a word of caution around several measures in Budget 2013.

Canada Jobs Grant program We congratulate the government on its focus to direct training to employer needs.  However, the conditions listed in the budget for these funds does raise a concern that this program will not be readily accessible for small businesses. The Job Grant funds will be directed towards training for an individual to fill an existing position or for an individual to access a better job.  In addition, the employer will need to match the federal governments contributions.  Our concern is that these conditions will make the program difficult to access for small business who wish to train existing staff and will also mean that programs such as the Micro Business Training Program would not be acceptable. Budget 2013 does state the employer groups will be consulted as the details of the program are negotiated over the coming year and the BC Chamber will work with the Canadian Chamber to ensure these concerns are addressed by the federal government.

Temporary Foreign Workers The BC Chamber also has concerns over the direction indicated in Budget 2013 over proposed changes to the Temporary Foreign Worker program.  The federal government is proposing increasing the scope and the length of advertising required under the Labour Market opinion process and is considering introducing user fees to access the program.  Again, these initiatives will reduce the ability of small business to access a program that is essential to some sectors.

TMECS team offers professional archaeological and GIS mapping services and consists of highly experienced personnel qualified to complete archaeological assessments as legislated under the Heritage Conservation Act (HCA). They follow specific policies and procedures defined by regional First Nation Councils; including Archaeological Overview Assessments (AOA), Preliminary Field Reconnaissance (PFR), Archaeological Impact Assessments (AIA), Site Alteration Permits (SAP) and Traditional Use Studies (TUS).

Tipi Mountain Native Plants (TMNP) is a wholesale native plant nursery located just outside Cranbrook, on the St. Mary Reserve. The company proudly propagates, and cultivates local plant species used in many ecological restoration programs through-out

Native plants are ideal for use in a wide variety of landscapes including mines, residential and commercial landscapes, as well as in all wild ecosystems. When planted in the correct location, native species are more resilient than their introduced counterparts; as they attract beneficial insects, birds, and fauna, they don’t require chemical inputs, and are more drought resistant. No project is too big or too small, their client list includes the College of the Rockies, TECK, BC Hydro, the cities of Fernie and Cranbrook, local garden enthusiasts, and professional landscapers. Be sure to mark Saturday June 15th on your calendar for the Tipi Mountain Native Plants Annual Open House.

the backyard of her grandparents’ Anne Marie and Paul Desrochers in Rosedale when the neighbour’s pit bull escaped its enclosure and attacked her. The dog had Jenna by the head. Four-year-old chihuahua Honey, being the protective little dog that she is, began growling and barking at the pit bull. The pit bull released Jenna and turned its attention towards Honey. Fortunately, the pit bull’s owner was soon able to grab and leash her dog before it could do much further damage. Jenna was rushed to the hospital where she received hundreds of stitches to her head and face. The pit bull was put down. A week later, Jenna, a Grade 3 Strathcona elementary student, has not yet returned to school and will be recovering at home for a while. On Tuesday afternoon, she was sitting inside her grandparent’s house on a black leather couch beside her grandmother.

Jenna Hauck / Black Press

A feisty chihuahua named Honey helped save eight-year-old Jenna’s life. Jenna is shy and quiet as a handful of media ask her questions. Honey bounces around at Jenna’s feet, turning in circles a few times before jumping up onto the couch and onto Jenna’s lap. “They’re best buddies,” said Anne Marie Desrochers, looking over at the two. Excited from all of the visitors, Honey’s eyes are wide and her ears are perked straight up.

Honey turns herself around and wiggles her way underneath Jenna’s left arm, clearly looking for some attention. Jenna gently pats Honey’s soft head and scratches her behind the ears. A few minutes pass and Honey’s breathing has slowed, her ears are relaxed, and eyes begin to close. Jenna looks down at Honey with a smile as she lovingly pulls her tiny hero in closer to her.

Harper government quietly leaving UN droughts and deserts convention Mike Bl anchfield Canadian Press

OTTAWA — The Harper government is pulling out of a United Nations convention that fights droughts in Africa and elsewhere, which would make Canada the only country in the world outside the agreement. The federal cabinet last week ordered the unannounced withdrawal on the recommendation of Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird, ahead of a major scientific meeting on the convention planned for next month in Germany. The abrupt move caught the UN secretariat that administers the convention off guard, which was informed through a telephone call from The Canadian Press. The cabinet order “authorizes the Minister of Foreign Affairs to take the actions necessary to withdraw, on behalf of Canada, from the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification, in those Countries Experiencing Severe Drought and/or Desertification, particularly in Africa.’’ Canada signed the convention in 1994 and ratified it in 1995. Every UN nation —194 countries and the European Union — is currently a party to it. The UN body has a research committee dedicated to finding ways to stop the spread of droughts that lay waste to farmland across the planet, particularly Africa. Scientists, governments and civil society organizations are

headed to Bonn next month “to carry out the first ever comprehensive cost-benefit analysis of desertification, land degradation and drought,’’ says a notice from the United Nations Environment Program. “Also, for the very first time, governments will provide concrete data on the status of poverty and of land cover in the areas affected by desertification in their countries.’’ The issue of encroaching deserts has become urgent because of renewed droughts that have plunged millions into poverty in Africa’s Sahel belt last year and in East Africa the year before. The Bonn-based secretariat for the UN body said no Canadian official had contacted them about the withdrawal. “We cannot comment on something that is not communicated officially to the secretariat or to the United Nations,’’ said a spokeswoman, who added she planned to contact the secretariat’s legal office for advice. Baird’s office referred questions to the Canadian International Development Agency, which did not respond immediately. The decision could stoke more criticism of the Harper government’s record on the environment. Canada, along with Japan, Russia and New Zealand, joined the United States in opting out of the Kyoto Protocol to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions. The government has also faced

Prime Minister Stephen Harper widespread criticism for muzzling scientists, leading to a recent complaint to the federal information commissioner to look into the matter. Its decision to cut the funding for the National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy has also sparked an outcry. Baird has suggested the closure of the think-tank was because the government did not want to pay for advice that did not fit with the government’s general direction. The roundtable had warned repeatedly that the federal government would not be able to meet its targets for cutting greenhouse-gas emissions without putting a price on carbon, an idea the Conservatives vehemently oppose. “Desertification, along with cli-

mate change and the loss of biodiversity, were identified as the greatest challenges to sustainable development during the 1992 Rio Earth Summit,’’ says the secretariat’s description of the 1994 convention. It calls the convention the “sole legally binding international agreement linking environment and development to sustainable land management.’’ Canada has also been an active participant in the convention, and has said it was in the country’s national interest to be a party to it. The Canadian International Development Agency — soon to be merged into the Foreign Affairs Department — has administered Canada’s participation and affirmed that fact in an undated, 40-page report, titled “Canada’s First Report

on Domestic Activities Relevant to the United Nations Convention to Combat Diversification.’’ The report says that Canada is an “Affected Party’’ under the treaty because of “the existence of drylands in the Canadian prairies.’’ The convention, the report states, requires Canada “to ensure that desertification issues are integrated into its national sustainable development plans and policies.’’ The convention also obliges its parties “to report on activities undertaken to address the problem,’’ says the CIDA report. “Our status as Party to this Convention is in our national interest because this Convention (and related issues like biodiversity), and the global thinking which is emanating from it, will benefit our own vision and approach of how we address our own, and the world’s drylands,’’ the report concluded. In a May 2008 speech to the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development, Canada’s representative said in a prepared text that “Canada has been a strong supporter’’ of the convention. The text said that “Canada applauds’’ the efforts of the convention’s executive secretary “to elevate the profile of desertification as a key environment and development issue, and will continue to support activities to combat desertification, land degradation and drought’’ in keeping with the goals of the convention.

Mountain pine beetle’s genome decoded C ar a McKenna Canadian Press

VANCOUVER — Gnawing pests that are devastating Canada’s forests and agriculture may not have an appetite for destruction for long, thanks to a recent scientific breakthrough. Researchers at the University of British Columbia and the Michael Smith Genome Sciences Centre have decoded the genome of the mountain pine beetle, which will allow for a first look into how the beetles can cause so much devastation, and why. Because mountain pine beetles live under a tree’s bark, the bugs can’t be sprayed and keeping the insect’s voracious hunger at bay is difficult. Christopher Keeling, research associate at the genome centre, said decoding the beetle’s genome will allow scientists to uncover some of the pine beetle’s secrets — such as how it can survive the bitter cold.

He said the information can also be used to help manage the epidemic in the future. The breakthrough opens up research for not only pine beetles, but all beetles and weevils that can be costly for the agriculture industry, Keeling said in an interview. This includes pesky species like the spruce beetle, the southern pine beetle and the eastern larch beetle, all of which have wreaked havoc on Canada’s forests. The mountain pine beetle alone has caused massive destruction to over 18 million hectares of lodgepole pine in B.C. — an area more than five times larger than that of Vancouver Island. The beetle turned vast swaths of once-green forests first to an orange-red and then to dead black. Pine beetle populations have moved further north and east and have started to infest other pine trees including the endangered

whitebark pine. Keeling said the pesky pine beetle problem is becoming more of an issue in Alberta and is now moving towards Saskatchewan. “Beetles actually are the largest order of insects. There are over 40,000 prescribed species,’’ he said. “Pretty much everywhere in Canada there’s an dendroctonus (bark) beetle that’s affecting the pine or spruce or other conifer trees.’’ Researchers from the University of Northern B.C. and the University of Alberta have found the beetle has genes that allow it to defeat a tree’s defence compounds and others that degrade plant cell walls, allowing it to suck up nutrients from the tree. The research — which was published this week in the journal Genome Biology — revealed a large variation among beetles in the species that is almost four times

greater than that of humans. The mountain pine beetle genome consists of about 13,000 genes and 12 pairs of chromosomes. Scientists think that could help the bug eat more effectively as it expands to new environments. There was also a bacterial gene uncovered that the experts believe allows the beetle to digest wood or possibly micro-organisms that grow underneath tree bark Keeling compared decoding the beetle genome to the sequencing of the human genome, which has opened up opportunities for researchers to quickly study human systems and figure out information about disease. The pine beetle is only the second beetle ever sequenced, the first was the red flour beetle, which is a pest in stored grains. Keeling said in a statement that the pine and red flour beetle are vastly differ-

The mountain pine beetle ent, however, and have “about the same relatedness

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Listen to what is being offered, and know that you do not have to agree. A partner or an associate has strong ideas. You might be surprised by your impulsiveness and willingness to veer in a new direction. Tonight: Don’t allow anyone to slow you down -- you are a roll. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Do your best to take care of errands and other responsibilities. You easily could be overwhelmed, so opt for a change of pace, whether it be napping, shopping or pursuing some other pastime. Fill your day with different activities. Tonight: Think “early weekend.” GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You simply can’t rein in your imagination, no matter how hard you try. You might decide not to discuss your flights of fancy. A relationship with a new friend delights you to no end. A meeting takes an interesting turn. Tonight: Continue as you have.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) If you can isolate yourself, you will get more done. You like a cozy environment, so consider adding a plant or painting to your office; it will add to your productivity. Schedule a brainstorming session toward the end of the day. Tonight: Let it all hang out. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Respond to all of your messages, calls and meetings. Be willing to go along with someone’s off-the-wall idea or suggestion. It could sound crazy, but it just might work. Sometimes, the element of surprise works in your favor. Tonight: Mosey on home. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Take into account the cost of what needs to be done. It is better to take a solid look at the budget for a project before going forward. Be more direct with a loved one. An associate or a friend could surprise you with his or her suggestion. Tonight: Meet friends for munchies. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Use today to the max for any sit-

For Better or Worse

uation or project that you feel is important. Others will surprise you with their responses. Caring evolves when you can get past initial reactions and understand where others are coming from. Your personality melts barriers. Tonight: Your treat. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Play it low-key. More facts and information will emerge if you observe, listen and perhaps make a subtle comment here and there. You could be surprised at what you might have missed. Consider how to avoid this information gap in the future. Tonight: Be confident. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Use the daylight hours to maximize your interests. You might be involved with an important project or a key interaction. Others are receptive to you right now. Present your ideas in a positive manner. The unexpected marks your love life. Tonight: Make it early. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Take a stand, but don’t be upset if someone has a strong reaction. Just for now, let go of

traditional thinking as you approach a problematic situation. Be innovative, and you’ll get better results. A family member could be creating an uproar. Tonight: Be where crowds are. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Detach, and you will understand more. You succeed because you are willing to look beyond the obvious. How you see a personal matter could change. No matter what you do and why you do it, the end results will be the same. Be a straight shooter. Tonight: Till the wee hours. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) An unexpected event or comment might influence your self-image, and could work against fluid communication. You simply are trying to digest too much, too fast. If you need to step away from a conversation or meeting, do. Tonight: Let the good times rock and roll.

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I have a wonderful husband and a problem that started when we married last year. We had a destination wedding. My husband’s stepfather paid for the immediate family to stay at a beautiful rental house. My brother’s ex, “Martha,” surprised us by coming, and she brought her daughter, along with a friend and her 3-year-old. The next day, Martha and her friend had to check out of their hotel hours before the wedding and simply assumed they would hang around the rental house until then. This was not OK. Martha never asks permission. She and her friend left the toddler at the house while they went to get food and then came back with nothing for the child, so she went into the kitchen and made him a sandwich from our supplies. I can understand my motherin-law being upset, but she overreacted and blew up at Martha. They argued, and Martha left and didn’t attend the wedding. Although my mom understands how Martha can annoy people, she shut herself off from then on. She didn’t help me into my dress, paid no attention during the wedding and spoke to no one. After the wedding, we had a small reception at the house, and she locked herself in our room. I was devastated. My husband’s mother apologized profusely to my mother after the incident, but Mom refuses to get over it. She won’t come to family gatherings when my in-laws are present. She missed our son’s first birthday party. I have tried to broker a truce, and I’ve told my mother I will no longer listen when she says negative things about my mother-inlaw. The end result is that she avoids the subject and nothing is resolved. Please help. -- Stressed Newlywed Dear Stressed: Your mother is being childish and purposely hanging onto this grudge. We think she is jealous of your in-laws and hopes her petulance will make you more attentive. It’s working. You are expending a great deal of energy on this situation. Stop. Tell Mom the subject is closed and if she chooses to lose out on family time, that is her decision, and you will no longer try to convince her otherwise. Dear Annie: I need some advice on how to handle put-downs from my wife’s friends. It started when our nosy neighbor saw my wife beat me in a wrestling match. Now the neighbor makes remarks about my getting beat up by a woman. My wife refuses to come to my defense and says I have to deal with this woman myself. How do I deal with these gossipy bullies? -Vince Dear Vince: It might help if you make yourself less of an easy target. You allow this neighbor to discombobulate you. Ignore her, or laugh it off. Her opinions are unimportant. But tell your wife that you expect her to stick up for you when her friends insult you, because she would certainly want you to do the same. Dear Annie: This is in response to “Questioning in California,” who is converting to Judaism and whose friends are not supportive of her new kosher eating habits. I’m not Jewish, but my husband is. For the past seven years, we have kept a strictly kosher kitchen. I recommend she learn how to make some tasty, unconventional kosher dishes and invite her friends over. I make an amazing Southwestern quesadilla and Kung Pao chicken. My husband makes gourmet pizza. We host every Thanksgiving and serve a traditional (kosher) turkey with all the trimmings. With all this good food around, our friends and family adjusted quickly, and some of them even use our recipes. The lactose intolerant are always glad to know that many dishes served in our house are completely dairy free. In fact, I recommend kosher cookbooks to anyone who is lactose intolerant. -- Kosher in California Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Suncor Energy cancels Weekday Morning/Afternoon its troubled Voyageur oilsands project

CALGARY — Suncor Energy announced Wednesday it was not going ahead with its troubled Voyageur oilsands upgrader project Suncor chief executive Steve Williams said market conditions have changed significantly, challenging the economics of the project. “That’s why we undertook a thorough review of the project to determine whether it met our criteria for long-term, profitable growth,’’ Williams said in a statement. “This decision is in line with our commitment to capital discipline and our stated plan to allocate capital with priority given to developing higher-return growth projects and accelerating the return of cash to shareholders through dividends and share buybacks.’’ The Voyageur upgrader was part of a joint venture Suncor inked with Total E&P Canada Ltd. just over two years ago. Suncor said Wednesday it has acquired the French company’s interest in the upgrader for $515 million to gain full control over the partnerships assets.

“Among other things, we will now be able to exclusively utilize the partnership assets to continue driving value from our base business and to support our profitable oil sands growth,’’ Williams said. A flood of light oil from places like North Dakota has changed the market in recent years and tilted the field against the massive multibillion-dollar upgrader project that would have transformed heavy crude into a similar product. Suncor took a $1.49-billion writedown on Voyageur in the fourth quarter of 2012. The company said it will take a charge to its first quarter net income and cash flow from operations of approximately $140 million and $180 million respectively as a result of the decision. Suncor is one of the largest operators in the oilsands, with huge mining operations north of Fort McMurray, a 12 per cent interest in the Syncrude Canada Ltd. mine, a 41 per cent stake in the yet-to-be-developed Fort Hills mine and steam-driven operations at Firebag and Mackay River.

Want to reach new customers? We read the newspaper every day, Monday to Friday.

Top Ten Reasons to Advertise in a Newspaper 1. Advertise to Reach New Customers. Your market changes constantly. Advertising is tremendously helpful in directing customers to the product and services they need, and helps put you ahead of your competition.

2. Your Competition Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Quitting. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to advertise to get your share of business or lose it to the stores that do. If you cut back on your advertising, you may forfeit new prospective customers to your competition.

4. Continuous Advertising Strengthens Your Image. When people who postpone buying come back to the marketplace, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a better chance of getting their business if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve continued to maintain a solid, reliable image.

5. Direct Advertising is Cost Efficient. Direct has the advantages â&#x20AC;&#x201C; demographic and geographic numbers to afford advertisers the best value and exposure for their advertising dollar.

6. Advertise to Generate Traffic. Continuous traffic is the first step toward sales increases and expanding your base of buyers. The more people who contact you, the more possibilities you have to make sales.

7. Advertise to Make More Sales. Advertising works! Businesses that succeed are usually strong, steady advertisers. Look around. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find the most aggressive and consistent advertisers are almost invariably the most successful.

8. Advertise Because There is Always Business to Generate. Salespeople are on the payroll. As long as youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in business, you have overhead and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to advertise to generate a steady cash flow.

Egyptian naval forces capture divers trying to cut undersea Internet cable Associated Press

CAIRO, Egypt — Egypt’s naval forces captured three scuba divers who were trying to cut an undersea Internet cable in the Mediterranean on Wednesday, a military spokesman said. Te l e c o m m u n i c a tions executives meanwhile blamed a weeklong Internet slowdown on damage caused to another cable by a ship. Col. Ahmed Mohammed Ali said in a statement on his official Facebook page that divers were arrested while “cutting the undersea cable’’ of the country’s main communications company, Telecom Egypt. The statement said

they were caught on a speeding fishing boat just off the port city of Alexandria. The statement was accompanied by a photo showing three young men, apparently Egyptian, staring up at the camera in what looks like an inflatable launch. It did not further have details on who they were or why they would have wanted to cut a cable. Egypt’s Internet services have been disrupted since March 22. Telecom Egypt executive manager Mohammed el-Nawawi told the private TV network CBC that the damage was caused by a ship, and there would be a full recovery on Thursday.

exactly what one expects it to be. It is such an easy country to explore due to its small size – only 200 kilometres wide and 300 kilometres in length. When travelling through the countryside, you really get to see why they call it “Fifty Shades of Green”. A traffic jam in Ireland is waiting for a herd of sheep to cross the road. Experiencing Ireland on a tour is a great way to not only see the destination but to learn about it. There are more people living in the United States and Canada of Irish descent than living in all of Ireland, due to the Potato Famine of the 1800s which led to mass starvation and the greatest emigration in the history of the world, causing the island’s population to fall by nearly a quarter. Dublin is a lively cultural city, full of museums, Georgian heritage, not to mention pubs – over 700 of them. Go visit the Temple Bar district, full of numerous restaurants, cafes and pubs at the very heart of Dublin’s nightlife. Head to Kilkenny to explore this medieval city and Kilkenny Castle, the symbol of Norman occupation and in its original 13th century condition. Travel just a little

south and you arrive in Waterford, home of the world famous Waterford Crystal. Kiss the Blarney Stone, at Blarney Castle and receive the gift of eloquent speech. Experience the beautiful Ring of Kerry, and travel along one of the most beautiful coastal routes in the world. Spend a couple of nights in Killarney to get your quintessential Irish experience. Other great sites include the Cliffs of Moher, 214 metres at its highest point and stretching eight kilometres over the Atlantic Ocean on the western seaboard of County Clare. Be treated to unique natural wonders as the Burren, with its vast limestone landscape, known for its stark beauty and Neolithic tombs. Of course, don’t forget to sample Irish whiskey, the proud drink of the Irish and the tasty ingredient in an Irish Coffee. One wouldn’t get the full Irish experience unless you spent one night in a Castle!

UK church exhumes grave over King Alfred speculation ASSOCIATED PRESS

LONDON — A diocese in southern England says it has exhumed a grave over fears that a set of bones could be stolen amid speculation that the remains are those of King Alfred the Great. The Diocese of Winchester says the exhumation took place earlier this week in the churchyard of St. Bartholomew’s Church. The bones are now in storage. Nick Edmond, dio-

cese spokesman, said Wednesday the exhumation was authorized to protect the bones amid heightened interest following the recently discovered remains of King Richard III. Edmondson said no permission has been given to analyze the bones. Alfred — who lived from 849 A.D. to 899 A.D. — was believed buried at nearby Hyde Abbey and there is speculation he was later reburied in the same area.

NEWS Private bounties driving large wolf kills in Alberta: environmentalists Bob Weber Canadian Press

EDMONTON — Conservationists are warning that privately funded bounties for killing wolves are shifting control over Alberta’s wildlife management to special interest groups. The Alberta Wilderness Association has compiled data showing that “harvest incentives’’ offered by northern municipal districts and hunting and trapping groups are encouraging an increasing and unregulated number of wolf kills. The Alberta government says the province has plenty of wolves and doesn’t believe the private bounties are a concern. The Alberta Fish and Game Association says wolves are a growing threat to livestock and popular big-game animals. Others say the bounties are leading to unse-

lective killing because animals from moose to grizzly bears also are strangled in snares set for wolves. Carolyn Campbell of the wilderness association says the bounties — which can be three times the value of a wolf pelt — are an ineffective response to the predators and represent an old-fashioned and unethical approach to wildlife. “Albertans want a more responsible, modern relationship with wildlife that recognizes that wolves have a value and shouldn’t just be shot on sight,’’ she said Wednesday. “We should be managing wolves based on science and not for the pleasure of special interest groups.’’ Starting in about 2010, several municipal districts in Alberta began offering bounties for wolf carcasses killed

on private land. Those districts now include Big Lakes, Clear Hills, Bonnyville, St. Paul and Two Hills. The bounties range between $15 and $300 per wolf. Figures compiled by the wilderness association suggest at least 524 wolves have been killed since 2010,

although the group hasn’t been able to get numbers from all districts. At least $166,000 has been paid in bounties. In addition, two branches of the Alberta Fish and Game Association and some branches of the Alberta Trappers Association offer a $300

bounty. “Wolf predation on farm animals and wild animals is increasing at a high rate,’’ said fish and game president Gordon Poirier. The packs are doing well after several years of good deer numbers, he said. “The wolves are

smiling and happy and fat.’’ But this year’s tough winter has them turning to other food sources, including popular biggame targets such as moose and elk, Poirier said. Fish and game members don’t like the competition. “They want less

wolves, more animals left on the ground — elk, primarily.’’ Alberta Environment doesn’t control wolf hunting and leaves it open to anyone with an in-season big-game tag. The department doesn’t keep records of wolves hunted or trapped on private land.
