Up-and-coming Cranbrook band The Good Ol’ Goats continue to turn heads across the nation, and now they are in the top four new bands in Canada. CBC’s Searchlight contest scans the country to source out the best new bands, and it has

set its sights firmly on The Good Ol’ Goats. On Tuesday, April 2, the local band, made up of Mount Baker Secondary School students, progressed to the semifinals of the Searchlight contest, placing the band in the top four in Canada.

tempted murder, but the Crown dropped that charge at Gravelle’s first court appearance on February 27. Gravelle appeared in front of Judge Ron Webb via video from Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre. Judge Webb agreed that Gravelle could be released from custody pending trial on a $10,000 recognizance, with strict conditions. A member of the Ktunaxa Nation, Gravelle must reside on the Canadian portion of the Tobacco Plains reserve. He can’t leave the reserve without written permission from his bail supervisor.

KIJHL goalie dies in fire Grand Forks Gazette

Robert Dunsmuir, who played goalie for a majority of the season with the  Grand Forks Border Bruins, has died in a house fire in Ontario. According to reports, Dunsmuir, along with his mother Jennifer, father Kevin and younger brother Cameron died early on March 29 at their home in East Gwillimbury, 50 kilometres north of Toronto. The Grand Forks Border Bruins’ organization was devastated by the news. “All of us associated with the Border Bruins were terribly saddened to learn that Robbie Dunsmuir, who was the Bruins’ goalie for most of the 2012/13 season, was a victim of a house fire at his home in Ontario on Friday along with his parents and younger brother,” said team vice-president and assistant coach Matt Zamec in a release. “Dunsmuir, or ‘Dunsy’ as he was known, was a talented goalie and an outstanding teammate, but above all, a kind, generous and compassionate

Robert Dunsmuir

person and an exceptional young man. “Robbie was an exemplary member of the community, donating his time to minor hockey and volunteering for numerous outreach programs. “Everyone who got to know him was touched by his honesty, gentle spirit and sense of humour. Border Bruins’ head coach and GM Nick Deschenes echoed similar sentiments. “Robert was an outstanding person. He was a great teammate and leader on the ice and conducted himself in the highest standard off the ice,” Deschenes said. “He was a big part of our team and our hearts go out to his family and friends in Ontario.”

Cranbrook Community Theatre cast and crew brings Enchanted April to life. In costume at rehearsal is Jennifer Inglis playing Rose Arnott.

Community Theatre volunteers bring ‘Enchanted April’ to life For the Townsman

Cranbrook Community Theatre brings us a story of enchantment and providence in their upcoming production of “Enchanted April.” The story revolves around four disparate, and obviously incompatible, women who escape the sad and depressing doldrums of their lives in post-World War l England by renting a flower-laden castle haven on the Mediterranean Sea in Italy. They slowly recover and rediscover themselves under the care of the landlord and cranky housekeeper. The lives they have left behind start to creep back into this Shan-

gri La, and they soon discover new twists on their old patterns. The story is told with large doses of humour and is embellished with outstanding costumes, sets and props (oh, and an unexpected wardrobe malfunction). With eight actors, an outstanding costume and properties crew, a tight technical team and an incredible set crew, there have been thousands of hours of volunteer time poured into this project. This is the second part of the “community” in Community Theatre. The first, of course, is the community that comes to watch the end result of all the

hard work that goes into a project like this. These productions create a community of their own. The total crew on this show numbers about 20. These people are constantly interacting with the actors and as everyone gets to know each other, life is shared and trust is gained. A new community is built. All of this will be on display for only 10 nights at the Studio/Stage Door. Opening April 12, “Enchanted April” will run every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday until April 27. This grand show starts at 8 p.m. and tickets are available at Lotus Books.

Pro cycling clinic being offered Barry Coulter

A special clinic is being offered in Cranbrook just in time for the cycling season getting underway. The Community Cycle Coaching Certification Clinic (or 5C) will enhance the knowledge of local cyclists up to the next level. The program is designed to help develop a foundational level of cycle coaching skills and abilities to assist cyclists in the community to improve their cycling skills and enjoyment. It will also provide a base for coaches interested in pursuing a competitive coaching career and skills. The program is being offered over three days: Friday, Saturday and Sunday, April 12, 13, and 14, at the Memorial Arena in Cranbrook, 1432 2nd Street North. Dr. Conan Cooper, Cycling BC Coaching Development Coordinator and Canadian Cycling

Association Learning Facilitator, will be the lead instructor. John Mandryk will be assisting. “As an active participant in developing and managing the NorthStar Rails2Trails I see the opportunity for Community Cycle Coaches to assist local and visiting cyclists to improve their skills, enjoyment and safety on the trail,” Mandryk said. “I am confident this is equally true for coaching in the Wildhorse Cycling Club, other cycling clubs and in our area schools. “Whether you are interested in active coaching of cyclists or simply interested in improving your own cycling skills, this coaching course will be a major opportunity to understand and participate in a sport that we all enjoy and can share with family and friends.” The program is scheduled to run: Friday, April 12, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.; Saturday, April 13, 9 a.m. to

5 p.m. (with a lunch break); Sunday, April 14, 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (with a lunch break). Bicycles will be required for the practical components of the course. A secure location to store bikes during the classroom sessions will be provided. Cost is $137.50 with a discount for Cranbrook residents. The normal cost of this course is $250. A 19-hour course with lots of hands-on skill development, it is being subsidized through Cycling BC, volunteer time and the City of Cranbrook. A Coaches Manual is included in the course fee. Please register at Western Financial Place. Registration is limited, but priority is being given to those who have advised of their interest. Please ensure that you are registered and paid by April 4, 2013. After that date, the course will be opened to the public.

Over the next week, until midnight on Sunday, April 7, people can vote online at www. music.cbc.ca/#/Searchlight to put The Goats through to the grand final. The four remaining bands are St. John’s, Newfoundland band Sherman Downey and the Ambiguous Case, Hamilton, Ontario band Poor Angus, and Ottawa’s Henry Norwood,

who is The Goats’ direct competition in this penultimate round. The Good Ol’ Goats are so close to winning the contest, which secures them a paid gig at the CBC Music festival in Toronto, a CBC Music video session, and $20,000 worth of musical equipment from Yamaha Canada. It’s been a meteoric rise for the young local band that formed in

2011. The Good Ol’ Goats consists of Joelle Winkel on shaker and backing vocals, Nolan Ackert on lead vocals, banjo and guitar, Angus MacDonald on mandolin, backing vocals and fiddle, Theo Moore on standup bass and backing vocals, Julian Bueckert on drums and Angus Liedtke on guitar, dobro, banjo, harmonica and vocals.

How do you like them apples? Wildsight Kimberley/Cranbrook hosting apple tree pruning workshops in both towns

for the townsman

Spring is finally here, and it’s time to think about your apple trees. Yes, the harvest is months away, but now is the time to judiciously prune your tree for increased fruit production and health. Don’t know how, or find it hard to follow the directions from a book? Join Wildsight Kimberley/Cranbrook on Saturday, April 6, for a free workshop led by ISA Certified Arborist David Couse. “These workshops are a great opportunity for anyone interested in learning more about managing the long term growth of fruit trees,” said Jessica Windle, Wildsight Food Sustainability Coordinator. “It’s also a chance to try out some of the tree pruning and fruit picking equipment we have available to borrow.” The tree-pruning workshops are just one part of the Apple Capture Project, which Wildsight Kimberley/ Cranbrook got off the ground a couple years ago. The project works to connect excess or fallen apples with people who’d like to eat them — rather than al-

Shooting suspect granted bail Continued from page 1 He is not permitted to be in Cranbrook, except with the permission of his bail supervisor, for a court appearance, or for legal meetings. He is not allowed to consume alcohol or drugs not prescribed to him. Judge Webb also ordered Gravelle not be in contact with five people related to the alleged offence. Gravelle is also required to be in his residence between 8 p.m. and 8 a.m. each day. He is not permitted to possess any firearms, crossbows, ammunition

or prohibited weapons. According to RCMP, in the early hours of Sunday, February 24, a 47-year-old Cranbrook man allegedly shot into a third-floor apartment on King Street. A police dog and handler tracked the man, who was hiding nearby, and found the weapon close to the apartment, RCMP said. Cpl. Chris Newel said at the time that the three occupants of the apartment, who knew the alleged shooter, were uninjured, although bullets narrowly missed one person.

During Spring Break, 28 Air Cadets from 279 Elk Valley Squadron and 552 Key City (Cranbrook) Squadron participated in a four-day field training exercise at Fort Steele Rod & Gun Club. The exercise focused on leadership, team challenges and survival scenarios. Members of Cranbrook Search & Rescue came out to assist the cadets, enhancing their training experiences. Special thanks to SARs members – “Side-Kick” Nick, Lloyd, Laura, Travis and Greg. Besides the unpredictable weather, some of the challenges included: fire building, stretcher carry, first aid, rope bridges, blind trust, compass course, spider net and more. For more information about Air Cadets in the Kootenay region, contact Lt. Bott at 250-426-3685 or trainingdesk552@ gmail.com.

Three areas east of Kimberley will be treated with prescribed burns.

Forest service to perform prescribed burns this week C AROLYN GR ANT editor@dailybulletin.ca

The Rocky Mountain Forest District will be taking advantage of suddenly warmer temperatures and attempt to begin prescribed burns this week. The burns, says Randy Harris, team leader of Ecosystem Restoration, are a follow up to five years of logging and thinning. “We are looking to kill trees less than a

metre high,” he said. “That will rejuvenate the grass and reduce fire hazard.” Burns are planned for: 1. Munson Slough just south and west of Jaffray near Lake Koocanusa; 2. Vicinity of the old Kimberley Airport on Hwy 95A; 3. Premier Lake Provincial Park; 4. Artesian Spring

just south of McGinty Lake and Meadowbrook. There will also be pile burning near Meadowbrook over the course of the spring and fall. The burn at Munson Slough could be ignited as early as Friday, April 5, Harris said. The Old Kimberley Airport Hwy junction burn is possibly this coming weekend. In order to ignite a

prescribed burn temperatures have to be above 20 degrees C, there must be at least 20 per cent humidity and wind speed must be less than 20 mph. “We think we may get those conditions this week,” Harris said. “The warm weather came a lot faster than we thought. A week ago there were poor conditions, now they are looking much better.”

Two teens charged in fire that destroyed a Castlegar church C ANADIAN PRESS

CASTLEGAR, B.C. — Two teenagers have been charged with arson in a fire that destroyed a church in Castlegar, B.C., just before Easter. The charges were laid against two Castlegar residents, 18-yearold Lee Wilding and a 16-year-old girl, who can’t be named because of her age.

They are accused of setting a fire at St. Rita’s Roman Catholic Church that destroyed the church’s main building on March 26. A nearby vehicle was also set ablaze, but no one was hurt in either fire. The girl has been released under strict conditions, but Wilding remains in custody.

Predation

Opinion/Events Letters to the Editor

Regarding Barry Coulter’s story “Locals want a halt to any-buck season”: First, a thank you to Mr. Palmer and Mr. Bowe for taking the initiative to stop the any-buck mule deer season. As a resident hunter I also have concerns with mule deer in the East Kootenay, and being so, have signed the petition. With this said, I believe that the any-buck season is only partially to blame for the mule deer decline that we are seeing today. When wildlife populations are healthy and plentiful it is good for the health of any ungulate population to harvest from all ages of the population. Poor decisions by the Wildlife Branch, starting in the 1980s with the over harvest of mule deer through the limited entry ‘draw’ system, then budget cuts in the 1990s, the almost total elimination of habitat restoration work on winter range, and then — the most crucial in my opinion — predation. Bears, cougars, and yes, wolves. The increase in predators in the last 20 years throughout the Kootenays is alarming to say the least! Wolves in particular are ravaging our mule deer population to a point in some areas that we may never see our mule deer rebound unless government steps in to alleviate the problem. Mr. Coulter’s story implies that the hunting community is harming the mule deer, but in reality it is predation. The hunting community prior to 2010 and for 10-plus years prior to that were only harvesting fourpoint or better bucks from the mule deer population. Changes in seasons/regulations alone will not maintain or increase mule deer populations unless the other issues are addressed. So keep signing the petition, but also wake up the wildlife branch and demand that they reduce the predator population and increase much needed habitat restoration work as well. Cheryl Petovello Elko, B.C.

Silent No More On March 27 the Nanaimo Daily News published Don Olsen’s letter, which asserted that First Nations people are underachievers incapable of taking care of themselves; whose only “fix” would be to make them “equals” by vetoing “traditional use and cultural nonsense”, educating “their children to become modern citizens”, discouraging them from “finding their identity and source of pride” from their ancestors, “turning off the taps” and letting them “stand or fall on their own account”. I won’t bother to address these ridiculous claims, except to say that apparently Mr. Olsen is unaware that his notions have been attempted before. Assimilation, outlawing traditions, child abductions and internment in mission schools — cultural genocide — are part of Canada’s history. And those policies are just SOME of the wrongs Canada’s First Nations people have survived. The fact that First Nations have been recovering and seeking their due rights and justice is what seems to be bothering Mr. Olsen. His letter brings to light the ignorant, naïve, and hostile sentiments that lurk in the dark corners of non-aboriginal society. I would bet Mr. Olsen espoused his vile opinions to family, friends, and anyone else who would listen! I’m sure I’m not the only one who has fallen into stunned silence when a family member, colleague, friend, acquaintance

or stranger has spouted such racist opinions, jokes or slurs. Wanting to avoid conflict, it seemed simpler to just ignore them. I have watched others do the same. One day I realized that being silent was was tantamount to consent for such behaviour, and leads people like Mr. Olsen to delusions that their views are worthy of further broadcast. Without offense or opposition, they assume their comments are acceptable. So I resolved to be silent no more! Silent no more in the presence of ignorant or racist opinions, comments, jokes or slurs. Silent no more while our government ignores First Nations’ pleas for justice and equality. Silent no more during never-ending negotiations for settlements that are long overdue; or while millions are spent on delay tactics and legal fees rather than resolutions. Silent no more while First Nations people and communities continue to suffer! Instead we can find our voice and, with respect and dignity, seize the opportunity to open up a dialogue; or shut them down if need be. I encourage all non-aboriginals to be SILENT NO MORE! We need to speak up and ‘work with our people’ towards understanding and supporting the aspirations of First Nations people. We are ALL much better off with healthy, educated, self-determined, culturally empowered, economically viable, contributing First Nations. Pledge to be SILENT NO MORE at www.facebook.com/SilentNoMoreCanada. Y. M. Quackenbush Cranbrook

Peace, Reconciliation The spring Equinox, together with Easter and Passover holy days, emphasize new beginnings, reconciliation and peace. Yet globally, peace is in short supply. In our lifetimes the World Wars and many regional wars have brought unspeakable anguish to countless families and communities. Military actions have been demonstrably ineffective in establishing durable peace. Closer to home, the absence of peace and reconciliation is evident in the miserable violence-ridden conditions in prisons; in the poverty endemic in Aboriginal communities and in urban cores; and in the astonishing lack of government attention to the perpetual crisis of missing and murdered Aboriginal women. Peace is relational, requiring a concern for others and for our fragile shared world and all its inhabitants. Peace becomes a verb, implying action for peace. Peace makes space for education, for democracy, for cultures and arts, for a healthy environment, and for families and relationships. War and myopic self-interest cannot guarantee those blessings. We stand with those who value peace to insist to our governments that, internationally, we prefer the hard work of diplomacy to military solutions; and that, domestically, we prefer processes of domestic reconciliation to criminalization, incarceration, marginalization and impoverishment. Dr. Jack Boan (Professor Emeritus, Economics), Dr. Joyce Green (Political Science) and 15 academic colleagues.

Running for or from Bill Bennett’s election ads fail to say which party he is running for.  His ads

leave the impression that he is running from his Liberal brand. On March 3, CBC quoted Bill Bennett on Christy Clark: “She’s a trooper. She’s our leader. We have a lot of faith in her.” Global News, March 3, reported that Bennett said “he didn’t think he would run if Clark wasn’t his leader.” Mr. Bennett appears to be giving a hearty party stand at the Coast, while running away from his party in this riding. He can run but he can’t hide from his government’s record. William G. Hills Cranbrook

Getting caught Re: Letter by John Balfour, March 21, 2013: Mr. Balfour insists that the secret account created by the NDP to syphon off NDP constituency office funds was “following the rules.” He also claims that the Legislative Comptroller “signed off on the legality” of the funds, but offers zero evidence of this. The leaked draft of the Auditor General’s report states that NDP MLAs from across B.C., like sheep, obeyed their political masters by kicking back $2,400 per year for five years to a fund that was used to pay political operatives to do political outreach in the Lower Mainland. The Auditor General said the account was used for improper partisan purposes. The Auditor General also said the NDP used these constituency office funds to cover up the fact that the NDP failed to balance their Caucus budget in 2008 and 2009 — and they now expect us to believe that they can balance a $42 billion provincial budget? I am not expressing an opinion, like Mr. Balfour was. I am passing along what the Auditor General actually said. What the NDP don’t want the public to know is that they told the Legislative Comptroller that they would use this secret fund for nonpartisan purposes, but they got caught by the Auditor General doing political outreach with money that was supposed to be used in constituencies such as Columbia River-Revelstoke to benefit the constituents there. The MNLA rule book states clearly that constituency office funds must not be used for political purposes. The NDP broke the rules and the Auditor General caught them. It is well-known that Bill Bennett places his priority on helping his constituents, and if his party told him he had to give back $2,400 per year of money he was supposed to use to help his constituents, Bill would tell them to take a hike. No NDP MLA had the guts to stand up for their constituents and say no to this corrupt scheme. Jim Fennell Cranbrook

‘Us’ and ‘Not Us’ I am puzzled by a line in Mr. Bennett’s campaign ad. What does it mean — “He is one of us”? Who is “us”? Even more important, who is not “us”? How do you tell the difference between the two? What criterion is used to select the difference between the two — gender, race, political ideology? This statement was also used in the last election.

In praise of the oreads It was probably forty years ago that I fell in love with the lithe blonde woman. I never spoke to her or even learned her name. She was the subject of a photograph in a Paris Match magazine that I was pretending I could read. She was poised alone like an oread, a mountain nymph, on an almost vertical rock face in the Italian Dolomite Mountains and I fell head over heels in love with the idea of her. My trouble — one of so many, my friends assure me — is that I have always admired outdoorsy, athletic women. After all, I did successfully persuade one to marry me. In those happy days, just after the second world war had stumbled to a conclusion, I was delighted to join a group of young people who had chosen rock-climbing and mountaineering as their sport. We were an eclectic lot from all walks of life and it was with them that I encountered those strong but beautiful women I learned to admire. DOROTHY: When I met Dorothy the first time, she was already married and had been with her husband, working at all sorts of jobs, doing a great deal of mountaineering and living on an ocean-going yacht. I never saw Dorothy in a dress; she probably didn’t own one. Her hair was always in a braid and coming undone, but

she was still beautiful. And she was tough. On a week-long back-packing trek through Jasper Park, she was the only one of us who never complained about distance, flies, steepness of the slope or disinteresting food but, near the end of the expedition, as we all swam in an icy lake, I glimpsed her naked shoulders and they were rubbed raw from the straps of the gigantic pack that had been her daily Peter burden. JANET: This diminuWarland tive woman once told me, “Unless you can put up with someone whilst camping in a small tent in foul weather and lousy food for several days, don’t even consider marrying him.” She found the right man, climbed with him in the Alps, in the Rockies and the Andes and, when she was a grandmother, beat her native guide to the top of Kilimanjaro in Africa. GWEN: Gwen died just a few days ago. She was eighty-three but I remember her from over sixty years ago. I even saw her on TV, a tall stately blonde (even on black and white film) and she was being interviewed about her joining her husband in a climbing group in the Himalayas. When asked why she, a (mere implied) woman, was going, she replied coyly, “We want to know if women are different.” The Sherpas certainly found out about

this blonde woman being different. They were fascinated by her, especially as she could carry a fair load and yet keep up with them, even at extremely high altitudes. WENDY: A gang of us had just successfully climbed the extremely steep Grepon in the French Alps and it was Wendy’s turn to rope off the summit over massive cliffs. With a little wry smile, she muttered sotto voce, “Just think. I could be polishing the front room floor right now.” I wasn’t as light-hearted as I followed her over. Many years later, when we were reminiscing, she told me, “The hardest climb I’ve done was following John, who had the baby on his back, up that awful track in the Pyrenees and singing silly nursery songs as we went.” JEAN: “You know why she’s marrying you, don’t you?” said my best man as I stood sweating into my unaccustomed suit. “She thinks you’re the only one that can keep up with her in the hills.” I whispered back, “She’s so besotted with my charms, she slows down for me.” Then the bridal march started. Jimmy, as we all knew her, not only slowed down for me over sixty years of marriage, but she stayed with me through thick and thin, crazy climbs, wild ski runs, dangerous caves, two boisterous children and my rotten sense of humour. I wonder how that pretty French oread fared in her later years.

V Reinhart named Ice captain for next season 250.426.5201

TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Though their season recently ended, the Kootenay Ice are already looking forward and have named Sam Reinhart as the team captain for the next campaign. Reinhart is picking up the captaincy mantle from Joey Leach, who is graduating out of the WHL and attempting to break into the pros with the Oklahoma City Barons.

Sam Reinhart Reinhart’s eldest brother Max, who spent his career with the Ice, wore an alternate in his final season, while Griffin, the middle sibling, is captain of the Edmonton Oil Kings. “It’s a huge honour to be named captain of such a successful organization over the past decade,” said Reinhart. “We learned so much over the past year, so ev-

eryone’s coming in next year with a lot of experience, and my job shouldn’t be too difficult. “…You just got to be comfortable in all situations. It’s not as much of talking in the room after every period to get everyone going—it’s just leading by example, on the ice especially, and staying composed.” Reinhart, who doesn’t turn 18 years old until November, led the team in offensive production this past season, with 35 goals and 50 assists for 85 points. However, leading a team as captain is more than just being a talented hockey player, according to Ice general manager Jeff Chynoweth. “Leadership is important on any team and it comes from within,” said Chynoweth. “Sam has been the leader of his peer group on and off the ice since joining the club two years ago. “Not only is he an elite player, but he has the respect of all his teammates and coaching staff with his work ethic and commitment to excellence.”

Canada edges US in shootout to open women’s world hockey championship ASSOCIATED PRESS

OTTAWA - Jennifer Wakefield scored in a shootout and Canada beat the United States 3-2 in a shootout to open the women’s world hockey championship Tuesday. Wakefield’s score was the shootout winner when goaltender Shannon Szabados stopped Hilary Knight in the fourth round. Meghan Agosta-Marciano also scored and Szabados stopped three of four shots for Canada in the shootout. Canada trailed 2-0 after two periods. Captain Hayley Wickenheiser skated to the bench and headed for the dressing room in the second period. She did not return. “Heading into the third period with a two-

goal lead, we’ve got to make sure we’re making smart chips, smart pucks,” U.S. captain Julie Chu said. “Turnovers are going to cost us and I think that’s kind of what happened.” Knight was the first shooter for the United States and she scored on that attempt before Szabados stopped her second. The U.S. had the momentum until Canada’s Rebecca Johnston and Catherine Ward scored in the final nine minutes of regulation to send the game into overtime. “We’re a confident group and we were able to take it to them in the third,” Wakefield said. Monique Lamoureux and Brianna Decker scored for the United States.

LEADING THE WAY: Kootenay Ice forward Luke Philp was named the Boston Pizza Top Playoff Performer for the 2013 WHL post-season. Philp’s play was consistent in the series against the Edmonton Oil Kings, and he led by example, recording two goals and one assist in five games. Pictured above: Trevor Gordon, with Boston Pizza, hands over the hardware to Philp.

Ice veterans moving up to AHL TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Kootenay Ice veterans Brock Montgomery and Joey Leach are turning pro. After ending the season in the first round of the WHL playoffs, the two overage players have reached deals with AHL clubs as they look to further their careers in professional hockey. Montgomery is packing his bags and heading to Austin for a shot with the AHL’s Texas stars, rejoining former Kootenay Ice teammates in Matt Fraser and Cody Eakin, while Leach is off to the Oklahoma City Barons. After having a stellar season last year that saw him put up the best numbers of his career, Montgomery powered his way to even better stats this last campaign, with 31 goals and 17 assists for 48 points, which was good for third in team scoring. That was good enough to impress the scouts with the Dallas Stars, and their affiliate, the Texas Stars came knocking. “I talked with Dallas at the start of the year, kind of kept in contact a

bit so it was nice, that that’s the team I signed with, because they were interested all along,” said Montgomery, “so I appreciate that. They kept looking at me all season.” “…It’s a pretty cool feeling. It’s what you work your entire life for— train every summer, is what it kind of comes down to—and now that I’ve got the opportunity, I’ve got to make the best of it with my work ethic down there and I have to prove myself everyday.” The ball got rolling after the Ice were bounced out of the WHL playoffs in five games against the Edmonton Oil Kings, with the agreement on Sunday evening. “Went over it with my agent and everything looked good, so I told my agent that I was happy with it, and the next day, he told me the deal was done,” Montgomery said. Montgomery will join up with the club on Wednesday, and will likely begin practicing as soon as possible, however, he doesn’t know when he will make his AHL debut. However, he’ll lean on advice and support

from his former Ice teammate in Fraser. “He’ll take care of me down there,” said a smiling Montgomery. Leach had his deal confirmed with the Barons on Monday night, and will head out to join his AHL parent team on Wednesday for the remainder of the season. The Kootenay captain has had a bit of a roller coaster experience with professional teams, getting drafted by the Calgary Flames in the third round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, but turned into a free agent after two years. Leach attended the rookie camp for the Winnipeg Jets last off-season, but has now come to amateur tryout terms with Oklahoma. “I talked to a couple other teams, but yes, this was the one that was pushing to get me there, so I thought it was a good choice to go there and show them what I got.” said Leach. The Ice rearguard ends his career as the alltime franchise leader in plus/minus with a plus 96, while adding six goals and 28 assists throughout the last campaign.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Whether you’re dreaming or at an event, you are on the move. You feel passionately about the direction in which you are heading. If you listen to the voices on the sidelines, you might meet resistance. Your determination can’t be reasoned with. Tonight: A force to be dealt with. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You see life from a different perspective than many other people. As much as you might try to detach, your inner voice will scream passionately about the matter at hand. Calm yourself down before making any dramatic statements. Tonight: Pursue a favorite pastime. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) A meeting or get-together could give you quite a start-up kick, which will charge the remainder of the day. Talk to a dear friend in order to gain a different perspective. Understand what is happening on a deeper level, and eliminate judgments if possible. Tonight: Share news.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Keep reaching out to someone you care about. You might be surprised by what happens when you hear this person’s news and rationale for his or her reactions. A boss or an authority figure could be -- at best -- in a sour mood. Steer clear. Tonight: Return calls and emails. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) A call or a message triggers a lot of action. Someone might be more irritated than you’d originally thought. Stay on top of problems, but try to be flexible. That attitude will get the situation calmed down as much as possible. Tonight: Off to the gym. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Your creativity emerges when faced with a problem. Stay centered, and understand that you will need to resolve this issue. A brainstorming session produces insightful thoughts. Take a lunch break to clear your mind. You will come back with more ideas. Tonight: Ever playful. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Take a step back and observe.

For Better or Worse

See how others handle a domestic issue. The solution that emerges might not be exactly to your liking, but you will get a better idea as to where they are coming from. Your lightness and energy need to be focused elsewhere. Tonight: At home. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Say what you want, but do consider the reactions you might get as a result. Look beyond the obvious and past your objectives. Evaluate your words if you want to maintain peace and accomplish a long-term goal at the same time. Tonight: Let a discussion continue. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Be sure of your financial decisions. Do some fact-checking if needed. You also might want to check out an investment, as it could involve more risks than you are aware of. A loved one pushes you to spend more time with him or her. Make it your pleasure. Tonight: Run an errand or two. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You’ll see a situation in a new light, and you will be ready to

make a move. If you do, others might feel left out, and you could have a lot of apologies to make. Decide whether the flak you’ll likely receive is worth it. Tonight: Take a midweek break from your day-to-day routine. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You might want to try a different approach. It will work, and you will stay ahead of the game. Realize that you don’t have the audience or the support you desire. Timing is not working with you. Put this idea on the back burner for now. Tonight: Get a good night’s sleep. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You could overspend or overcommit if you are not careful. Be aware of your limitations before you take action or say “yes” to an offer. Remember, you are human and can do only so much. Discussions need to focus on friends. Tonight: Have a spontaneous get-together.

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I have been dating my boyfriend for four years. We both have children from our previous relationships and share custody with our exes. Until recently, we had our kids on the same weekends. Then my boyfriend’s ex decided that her children cannot be here when my 11-year-old son is staying over. Because my son is the oldest, he tends to be blamed whenever the kids do inappropriate things. But kids pick up all kinds of things in school, from other kids and from other adults. I feel my son is being blamed unfairly. My boyfriend’s ex doesn’t know me or my children. I have heard her children say and do things they should not be allowed to do, but I seem to be the only one who notices. My boyfriend makes excuses for their behavior, but if my children misbehave, he is quick to let me know that I need to discipline them. The major problem is his 9-year-old daughter, who wants to be the center of attention when she is around her dad. She becomes upset, demanding and controlling, and she recently began sassing me. I love his children and take care of them as if they were my own. I understand the need for them to have individual time with their parents, but I’d also like them to learn how to get along with each other. I blame my boyfriend for letting his ex control the situation. Am I overreacting? -- Confused and a Little Sad Dear Confused: You are on shaky ground when it comes to telling your boyfriend and his ex how to arrange their visitation schedule. It is not unreasonable for the mother to prefer that her kids have time with Dad without your children around. We think you should try to make friends with the ex so you can work on getting the kids together for holidays and special occasions. They will be less belligerent toward one another (and toward you) if they don’t have to compete for their father’s attention at every visit. Dear Annie: I am an administrative assistant and am proud of the level of professionalism I have maintained in the office. However, I feel like I am about to go out of my mind. I share an office with a very rude woman. I do my best to smooth out her rough spots with customers, but she has one horrible habit I cannot fix. She constantly chews gum with her mouth open and looks like a cow. I find it amazing that our administrators, who deal with her daily, have never mentioned this to her. I purposely turn my music up a bit louder to drown out the sound. She and I do not have a good relationship, so I cannot think of a way to mention this without upsetting her. The stress it causes me is giving me a headache. It is gross and unprofessional. Any suggestions? -- Pro in Pennsylvania Dear Pro: You have nothing to lose by asking her nicely to please not chew gum when dealing with the customers, because it is unprofessional, as well as unappealing to see and hear. You also could talk to human resources or a supervisor about instituting a behavior and dress code to cover such things. It is often easier than singling out one particular employee. Dear Annie: I’d like to respond to “N.Y., N.Y.,” the 34-year-old who found it difficult to visit his ailing grandparents. When our parents’ health deteriorated, it wasn’t pleasant to visit, but we kept in mind all the times they took care of us when we were babies, cleaning soiled diapers and sitting up all night when we were sick. Recently, my uncle suffered a stroke. At our first visit, he didn’t recognize us. For the next visit, we brought his favorite music and read stories from Reader’s Digest. I know those grandparents would enjoy some company. -- MD, Calif. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Eleanor Innes passed away on Thursday, March 28, 2013 in Cranbrook at 72 years of age. She was born on July 16, 1940. She was a very special lady to so many people. She started her career as a Dog Groomer with Anna May Gartside at the Clip Joint. She then opened up her own grooming place down town known to all as Pretty Pooch. Snooks was her nick name to many people. She was a volunteer at the red-cross and also did a lot with the SPCA. Snooks had a love for animals; it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter what kind or size. Her dogs and her horse were most special to her. She was an animal whisperer, loved camping, fishing and hunting or anything outdoors. Her new love became field trials with her horse, and Keith her husband, and she always looked forward to going to trials in the USA and Alberta where she met amazing friends, and was known as Fast Eddy. Snooks is survived by her husband Keith Inness, son Terry Lode (Bev), daughter Kim Boggs (Glen), and daughter Robin Pinchak (Clayton). She also leaves behind numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren that meant the world to her.
