East Kootenay hospital to get Two charged in Kimberley multimillion dollar addition drive-by shooting on Friday MLA announces $12 million in funding to build a new intensive care unit at East Kootenay Regional Hospital and upgrade the hospital’s electrical system SA L LY MAC D ONAL D Townsman Staff

A project first mentioned in the B.C. government’s 2013 budget in February has turned into a $12 million boon for Cranbrook’s hospital. On Friday, April 5, Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett officially announced a $12 million contribution to help Interior Health replace the intensive care unit (ICU) at East Kootenay

Regional Hospital (EKRH). It’s 60 per cent of the project’s $20 million cost. The remaining 40 per cent – $8 million – has been funded by the Kootenay East Regional Hospital District board. “It is my pleasure today to announce the next big thing for EKRH — a new intensive care unit and upgraded electrical system,” Bennett said during the announcement in the hos-

pital’s lobby, attended by dozens of medical staff, hospital volunteers and fundraisers, and elected officials. “All of us are involved in contributing to these improvements: the Hospital Foundation, Interior Health, the B.C. government, volunteers, and in particular the medical staff. As my father would say, you have taken a sow’s ear and turned it into a silk

purse. “I recall in 2000, Maclean’s magazine portrayed our hospital as the poster child for how bad rural health care was in Canada. Today, this new intensive care unit complements a new ambulatory care ward, new diagnostic imaging centre, new emergency room, new entrance and many new specialists.”

RCMP say no link between suspects, targeted house


Kimberley RCMP say there is no link between two men charged in a Thursday drive-by shooting and the home they shot at. Overnight between Thursday, April 4 and Friday, April 5, police were called to a home on Archibald Street in Kimberley. First at 11 p.m., the inhabitants of the home reported shots being fired at the residence and gave police a

vague vehicle description. Police began to search for the vehicle, but were unable to locate it before the alleged shooter returned to the scene of the incident at 1 a.m. According to an RCMP statement, police located the suspect vehicle and arrested two men. On Friday, charges were laid against two 27-year-old men who

RCMP said have extensive criminal records. One man has been charged with discharging a firearm with intent, possession of a weapon while being prohibited, possession of a prohibited weapon and ammunition, and breach of probation. The second man was charged with breach of probation. The pair will next appear in Cranbrook court on Monday, April 9.

VICTORIA — Health officials in B.C. are on alert after the latest bird flu outbreak in China has killed six people. Provincial Health Officer Dr. Perry Kendall says health authorities are working with their federal and international counterparts to keep a close eye on the H7N9 virus. He says the risk in Canada is low and there have been no reported cases of human-to-human transmission of the virus. Kendall says surveillance systems set up following an earlier bird flu outbreak in 2009 and the SARS outbreak are working well, with detailed protocols in place to deal with anyone who arrives at a B.C. airport sick. He says provincial and federal health labs are ready to investigate any new cases of influenza and B.C. has a stockpile of antiviral drugs in case the virus spreads beyond China. The Public Health Agency of Canada has also posted an advisory about the virus for Canadians planning travel to China.

Railway Museum founder leaving the Station April 30 Courtesy Chris Ayling

Garry Anderson, the driving force behind the Canadian Museum of Rail Travel and the Cranbrook Archives, Museum and Landmark Foundation (CAMAL) will retire on April 30, 2013. The recipient of many outstanding service awards, including the Order of Canada and most recently a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal and the Canadian Museums Association’s Distinguished Service Award, Anderson has dedicated his entire career to preserving local heritage, including the building of an internationally recognized Railway Museum in Cranbrook. According to CAMAL Board Chair, Jeanette Sissons, Anderson’s professional career is a record of outstanding dedication and achievement. “Garry is always quick to acknowledge the help of our board members, volunteers and donors,” explained Sissons. “But everyone would say the Museum was Garry’s vision from the very beginning, one that he has pursued with a single-minded tenacity for almost 40 years. Without Garry there would be no Museum or Cranbrook Archives.” Anderson grew up in Cranbrook. After earning a degree in architecture at the University of B.C. he returned to Cranbrook in 1972 to find a community up in arms about the recent demolition of a number of historic buildings, particularly the local post office. The City hired him to produce a report to find a better way to manage heritage preservation, and one of the recommendations was the formation of a local heritage society. Founded in 1976 and with Anderson first as the volunteer Chair, and since 1980 as the paid Executive Director, CAMAL set out to create a repository of Cran-

Garry Anderson brook history through preservation of archival material and exhibition of the City’s rich railway past – all within a Museum facility. “Over the following 35 years, with Garry Anderson as our conductor, that’s exactly what CAMAL achieved,” Sissons said. “We have a massive archive of Cranbrook history that will be kept safe for generations to come. We are an internationally renowned showcase of the golden days of rail travel, both preserving some of our railway heritage and serving as a tourist attraction and income generator for our com-

munity. “And, of course, we have the stunning Royal Alexandra Hall, reconstructed from one of the key Canadian Pacific Railway Hotels, for local celebrations, weddings and other community events.” Sissons said that rather than winding down his efforts as he approaches retirement, Anderson continues to promote local heritage, recently completing a large Explore Historic Cranbrook Heritage Tour map with 96 local historic listings; 15,000 copies have been printed for free distribution. “The Museum is an enduring testament of Garry Anderson’s outstanding effort to protect and honour our past, and for that we will always be grateful,” Sissons said. “We wish him the very best in his wellearned retirement.” CAMAL will be hosting a private retirement celebration for Garry Anderson at the end of the month.

Crown won’t charge Creston RCMP officer after IIO report C anadian Press

VICTORIA — No criminal charges will be laid in connection to the first charge assessment sent to Crown by British Columbia’s new police watchdog. The Criminal Justice Branch says it has decided not to approve a charge in connection to allegations of excessive force by an RCMP officer in Creston, B.C.

Crown counsel says it has thoroughly reviewed all available evidence from the Independent Investigations Office and the Delta Police Department in connection to the incident. The IIO began investigating after an allegation that a man suffered serious facial injuries after an altercation with an officer at a local business last October in the southeastern B.C.

community. The justice branch has concluded the available evidence doesn’t support the substantial likelihood of conviction for a criminal offence. While the branch says Crown counsel has concluded the officer used force against a male, the prosecution wouldn’t be able to prove that the force was excessive and therefore unlawful.

partnership with other members of the dental team and will gather all the necessary information to make an informed diagnosis. Your dentist may look at some or all of the following during your examination: • Medical history including health conditions or medications that could impact dental care or treatment. • X-rays are a valuable diagnostic tool that may be taken to see what’s going on below the surface of the teeth and gums. • Oral hygiene to confirm plaque and tartar levels that affect gums and teeth. The dental exam and diagnosis is the foundation of oral health. Your dentist is able to detect and diagnose oral health problems to stop disease from advancing.

The dental exam – more than a ‘checkup’ As with your overall health, prevention and early detection are the cornerstones of good dental health. Regular brushing, flossing, good n u tri t i on a nd no t smoking all have a role to play in reducing the risk of cavities, gum disease and other oral disease. Equally important is a regular dental exam, even if you wear dentures, which can identify and diagnose small problems before they become more serious. “De n tal d i se a se o f t en does not show symptoms u n t i l t h e d i s e a s e h a s progressed,” said Dr. Bruce Ward, spokesperson for the British Columbia Dental Association. “Patients are not aware that a problem exists until they have pain or swelling. Unlike other illnesses or diseases, dental disease is not reversible so catching it early is critical to prevent ongoing problems or negative health impacts.” By understanding what the dentist is looking for during an exam and speaking with

your dentist about your diag n o s i s y o u c a n m a k e informed decisions about your dental health needs. Each patient is unique so the specific components of the dental examination will vary based on your current oral and general health, lifestyle factors and frequency of professional dental cleanings. It is also important to understand that your dental insurance coverage is based on the plan purchased by your employer for all employees, which may or may not cover your unique oral health care needs. Review your plan and discuss this with your dentist so that you can understand your options and can make the best decision for your own health. During the dental examination your dentist will inspect a number of important areas and functions of your mouth to identify any early signs of dental disease and prevent small problems from becoming big ones. Your dentist may perform parts of the examination in

• The gums will be examined for signs of disease such as redness, swelling or infection. • Soft tissue health, including the lips, tongue, cheeks and upper and lower surfaces of the mouth for signs of oral cancer or sensitivity. • The condition of teeth to identify any damaged or decayed teeth along with the condition of any dental prosthesis (e.g. dentures). • Existing dental work, such as fillings, root canals and crowns will also be inspected. • Jaw function: how the teeth are fitting together and the bite. The overall health and function of the temporomandibular joint (joint that joins the jaw to the skull). • The general condition of the bones in the face, jaw and around the mouth. • The normal growth and development of baby and permanent teeth in children. Talk to your dentist if you have any questions about your dental exam, diagnosis or treatment options. For more information visit

ICU project expected to start this year, complete in 2016 Continued from page 1 The $20 million project will consist of a 6,500 square foot ICU with six beds, including equipment. The proposed design includes the capacity to build a second floor onto the expansion at a later date. About 50 per cent of the project cost will go to upgrading the hospital’s electrical system,

according to Todd Mastel, Interior Health’s director of business support. “It’s a rebuild of the electrical backbone in the entire facility, taking the power supply from 208 volts to a 600 volt system, new transformers, upgrading the emergency power system including two new 750 kilowatt generators, as well as making sure we comply with CSA standards for hospitals,” Mastel said during a hospital district board meeting Friday morning. A request for proposals for the ICU’s design will be issued on Monday. Construction is likely to start by the end of the year. However, because the electrical work must be carefully scheduled, it will take 36 to 40 months to complete, meaning the new ICU ward should open in late 2016. The hospital district approved its $8 million of funding on Friday morning, just hours before the government announced its $12 million share. In anticipation of the government funding, the hospital district had already budgeted $2.6 million for the project. On Friday, the board agreed to borrow another $5.4 million.

“I want to tell you proudly that we did that with no tax increase as a result,” said hospital district board chair John Kettle. “This is one of the greatest announcements I’ve had the privilege to be involved in,” added Kettle. “We have it today because it was a team effort. “We handed the ball to Bill (Bennett) and said: sic ‘em. Bring us the money. Today I take my hat off to Bill and say – he brought us the money.” Dean McKerracher, vice chair of the hospital district board, spoke about the facility as someone who was a patient for four days in the existing ICU last year. “There was not a lot of room in there by the time they hook up the machines,” he shared. “There is a great need for this facility and I am pleased to be part of this announcement.” Internist Dr. Bill Newsome shared the gratitude of the hospital’s medical staff. “On behalf of all of the staff, I am very excited about this new facility. We have all worked shoulder to shoulder in the old ICU. It is going to be a great service to the whole region.”

opinion/features Letters to the Editor

Mr. Hills in the April 3 Townsman attacks the BC Liberal government’s record on the economy. B.C. is actually doing very well compared to the rest of the world – one of the world’s healthiest economies; jobs created faster than most of Canada; balanced budget; AAA credit rating; lowest personal income taxes in Canada; low business tax rates; significant growth in take-home pay for working people; strong resource industries. We should all take the time to be aware of our relatively positive circumstances and what we have to lose by choosing the NDP on May 14. Mr. Hills implies that the NDP have a better record in government than the BC Liberals, so let’s compare. B.C. became a “have-not” province under the NDP; worst economy in Canada; highest personal and corporate income taxes in Canada; zero growth in take-home pay; mining moved to South America. The NDP actually began their failed tenure in government with the strongest economy in Canada and the lowest taxes. This is a pattern for the NDP. The NDP has never understood that governments must do more than spend tax payer dollars. Governments should use

policy to encourage investment and job creation, so that people are working and businesses are prospering. For example, our government is encouraging the once in a lifetime opportunities in liquefied natural gas that can provide us with thousands of great jobs, billions to pay off the provincial debt and add to our quality of life. The NDP refer to this opportunity as a “fantasy” despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. Why would we risk losing this huge opportunity? The truth is the NDP is offering change for change’s sake, while hoping voters will not consider the very real risk that taxes will go up, investment will go down and good new jobs will go elsewhere. The NDP are a threat to the future of British Columbia, not a “change for the better.” Lois Dettling Cranbrook

Who is ‘Us’ In the Daily Townsman of April 3, 2013, a question was posed by a letter from Shirley Green as to who “us” is in some of Bill Bennett’s campaign ads.

In response, I would like to describe who “us” is: 1. Us is all the people who live, work and recreate in the East Kootenay and are proud of our initiatives and free enterprise economy. 2. Us is the majority of people in the East Kootenay who have voted for Bill Bennett in the last three provincial elections as the representative of free enterprise. 3. Us is the people of East Kootenay who want strong representation in Victoria and someone who will stand up for East Kootenay constituents as Bill Bennett has done. 4. Us is the people of the East Kootenay who want our sons, daughters and businesses to remain in the East Kootenay and not be run off into Alberta by a repressive NDP government like happened in the 1990s. 5. Us are the people of the East Kootenay who cherish our own style of living and do not merely follow the dictates of lower mainland large labour groups. That is who “us” is and that is why Bill Bennett is one of us. Jim Fennell Cranbrook

KMA president Chad Hansen was thrilled to see the musical diversity in the Artist of the Year category. “We’ve got an opera, two big folk-stomp bands, an electronic producer and a singer-songwriter going head-to-head,” he said. “It just goes to show the range of talent we have in the region. Whatever type of music you like, you can find somebody here doing it really well.” Shortlisted artists come from all corners of the Kootenays. The Good Ol’ Goats from Cranbrook show up in the “Best Roots and Blues” and “Artist of the Year” categories, Golden’s WakCutt is on the list for “Best DJ” and the Slocan Valley’s Immune 2 Cobras is hoping for “Best New Artist” and “Best Punk/Rock/ Rhoneil Metal.” There’s a huge representation from Nelson artists. KHAOS, the opera written by Don Macdonald, is nominated in three categories. Tofu Stravinsky and James Lamb are both up for “Album of the Year” and Selkirk music student Dylan McPherson is going for “Best New Artist.” To listen to tracks from all the contenders and place your vote go to and click “Nominate” on the page banner, then “Vote now.” There’s a play button under each artist’s picture that you can click to listen to their music.

ourteen years ago, scientists developed a genetically engineered version of rice that would promote the production of vitamin A to counter blindness and other diseases in children in developing countries. In a few months, the Philippines will become the first country to start giving “golden rice” out to its farmers. Bangladesh and Indonesia will follow suit soon, and India is seriously considering it. Good, but 14 years is rather a long time, isn’t it? The number of children in developing countries who went blind from vitamin A deficiency during that time (half of whom died within 12 months of losing their sight) runs into the low millions. (The World Health Organisation estimates that between a quarter-million and a half-million children a year go blind from vitamin A-deficiency.) “Golden rice” contains beta-carotene, an orange-coloured pigment that is a key precursor chemical used by the body to make vitamin A. Sweet potatoes, carrots, spinach and butternut squash are naturally rich in beta-carotene, but ordinary white rice contains almost none. And rice is the most important food in the diet of about half the world’s people. So what caused such a delay in getting it out to the farmers? It was created by Peter Beyer, professor for cell biology at Freiburg University in Germany, and Ingo Potrykus of the Institute of Plant Sciences in Switzerland in the late 1990s, and was ready for field trials by 2000. But the first field trials were delayed for seven years by protests from Greenpeace and other environmental groups, and crossing various regulatory hurdles took another six. Both the protests and the regulatory hurdles were based on the notion that genetically engineered plants are “unnatural.” Which automatically raises the question:

which human food crops are actually “natural,” in the sense that you will find them growing wild in nature. Answer: none. That’s why ecologist Stewart Brand has proposed the phrase “genetically engineered” (GE) in lieu of the more common “genetically modified” (GM) on the grounds that ALL domesticated plants have been genetically modified, by cross-breeding or by blasting seeds with radiation. None of them would survive in the wild. Gene-splicing is just a Gwynne more efficient and neater Dyer way of achieving the same goals. Much of the early opposition to GE was no more than a superstitious fear of the unknown, and there was also genuine concern that it might pose health risks to consumers. The way that GE crops were first introduced was bound to arouse opposition. In 1996 Monsanto, the world’s leading biotech company, began to market GE versions of corn, soybean, cotton, canola, sugar beets and alfalfa that had been engineered to tolerate glyphosate, a very effective herbicide that the company had been selling with great success as “Roundup” since 1974. The patent on “Roundup” was expiring in 2000, allowing glyphosate to be made by rival companies. But in practice Monsanto’s patents on the new GE seeds extended its monopoly for decades more: farmers could buy glyphosate wherever they wanted, but to use it to best effect they had to buy Monsanto’s herbicide-resistant seeds (called, of course, “Roundup Ready”). Then Monsanto used relentless lobbying to get its GE seeds through the approval process and out onto the market. It succeeded in North America and most other major grain-growing areas, but not in Europe — and its strong-arm tactics created deep resentment and suspicion in many quarters. A decade and a half later, that still

lingers. But it’s now clear that GE crops pose no health risk. North Americans have been eating them for 15 years, whereas Europeans scarcely eat them at all, but there is no significant difference in disease and death rates that can be linked to GE food. Meanwhile crop yields have risen dramatically, herbicide and pesticide use has declined, and no-till farming that cuts carbon dioxide emissions due to ploughing has become far more common. The opposition to GE crops never came from farmers, and it’s now in steep decline in the general public as well. There are seven billion of us now, and there will be at least eight-and-a-half billion before the human population of this planet stops growing. Moreover, as living standards rise in most formerly poor countries, diet is changing too and much more meat is consumed. To meet that demand, even more grain is needed. We are using 40 per cent of the land surface of the planet to grow our food. That is already too much, because replacing the complex natural ecology with our monocrop agriculture removes vital elements from the chemical and biological cycles that keep our climate stable. As environmentalist Jim Lovelock, the author of the Gaia hypothesis, put it: “We cannot have both our crops and a steady comfortable climate.” But perhaps we could have it both ways if we cut back to, say, 30 per cent of the planet’s land surface devoted to agriculture. Or 25 per cent. The point is that we must reduce the area we are farming, not increase it. The only way to do that is to raise crop yields dramatically. Genetically engineered crops may be able to meet that demand. There are no other proposed solutions on the table.

Cranbrook Eagles Boxing Club athletes Dylan Clark (left) and Shannon Ryan (right) spar during a training session as they prepare for the upcoming B.C. Golden Gloves tournament.

Ryan gets ready to rumble Cranbrook athlete looking forward to upcoming boxing tournament

After making her hometown debut in the ring a few months ago, Shannon Ryan is looking forward to competing again in front of family and friends for the B.C. Golden Gloves boxing tournament this weekend. Ryan, a 16 year old boxer in Grade 11 at Mount Baker Secondary School, is currently undefeated in three fights, after stepping into the ring for the first time in the Rumble in the Rockies tournament last fall at the Eagles Hall. Since then, she’s appeared in four fights and is undefeated in all

of them—albeit they’ve all been against the same fighter. Ryan is one of four local fighters with the Eagles Boxing Club hoping to get in a few bouts during the Golden Gloves tournament. However, Eagles Boxing Club coach Bill Watson has yet to set up a match for her, but hopes to get her in the ring if he can get a female boxer for the weekend event. “It’s just so much more of a thrill when it’s in your own town,” said Ryan. “I’m really excited.” Ryan’s three fights have been against the same opponent in

American boxer Savannah Riggles, who fights with the Flathead Boxing Club out of Kalispell. “Although I knew she was ready to get in the ring, she didn’t feel like she was ready,” said Watson, “so this year, we managed to get her in the ring for that fight in Cranbrook and her first bout, she took on someone that was older and heavier and we won the fight. It did tons for her confidence and she couldn’t wait to get back in the ring after that. “The next three bouts were against the same girl. She stopped her twice out of those three bouts and its time

for us to move on.” Ryan has noticed improvement in her boxing, especially on the strategy side of things when she’s in the heat of the moment. “My first fight, I just threw myself out there and just ran at her,’ said Ryan. “But as the fights progressed, I’ve learned. You can’t just throw your punches or you’re going to get punched back. “It’s really nice to slow down and be able to think in the ring.” The B.C. Golden Gloves tournament kicks off on Saturday this weekend at the Cranbrook Curling Centre.

Canada falls to Sweden in world curling final MONTE STE WART Canadian Press

VICTORIA - Canada’s world men’s curling championship reign ended Sunday after three years, but Brad Jacobs was still able to put the loss in perspective. Jacobs’s Northern Ontario rink fell 8-6 to Sweden’s Niklas Edin in the gold-medal game. “It’s not like we came out and we curled really horrible,” said Jacobs.

“We threw the rock really well. I feel like we curled really well. The ice was a little different. We didn’t catch on to it quick enough. That’s why they’re holding hands (as champions) and we got the silver medal today.” Edin locked up the win in the eighth end as he stole two points to go up 8-4. After Jacobs pulled within two in the ninth, the Swede was

able to run the Canadians out of rocks in the 10. “We’re so happy that we could make enough shots in the beginning to get that good start,” said Edin. Sweden led throughout the game after going up 2-0 early. “Unfortunately, we didn’t bring our A-game today and we were on the wrong side of the edge,” said Jacobs. “We

Raonic lifts Canada over Italy and into Davis Cup World Group semifinals

didn’t give (fans) much to cheer for.” Jacobs’s Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., rink had hoped to complete a fourth-place to firstplace run after entering the playoff round with two straight losses. The Jacobs rink also fell short in its quest to win the first world crown for a Northern Ontario rink since Al Hackner’s Thunder Bay rink triumphed in 1985.

VANCOUVER - Milos Raonic helped take Canada where it’s never gone before at the Davis Cup. Raonic defeated Andreas Seppi 6-4, 6-4, 3-6, 7-5 on Sunday and Canada advanced to the World Group semifinals for the first time by defeating Italy 3-1 in their quarter-final tie. Canada will next face Serbia in the World Group semis in September. Serbia, which features the world’s top player Novak Djokovic, wrapped up its quarter-final tie with the U.S. Sunday when Djokovic defeated Sam Querrey 7-5, 6-7 (4), 6-1, 6-0 to give the Serbs an unbeatable 3-1 lead in the series played in Boise, Idaho. Team Canada had

never before been to the Davis Cup quarter-finals in the modern era when it accomplished that by upsetting Spain in February. Roanic’s win ran the Thornhill, Ont., native’s personal winning streak of Davis Cup singles matches to seven straight. His overall record for Canada is now 12-4, 10-3 in singles and 2-1 in doubles. Canada’s victory over Spain at the same UBC venue in early February was a true upset with Spain ranked No. 1 in the world in Davis Cup - although the Spaniards were missing a couple of their top guns. But the win over Italy, on paper at least, was true toss up. Raonic and Seppi were virtually tied in the world rankings and Italy’s second singles play-

er, Fabio Fognini, held a huge ranking advantage over Canada’s No. 2 Vasek Pospisil. And the doubles - which Canada won in five tense sets Saturday - also looked like a “pick-em” matchup. But on a deeper level Canada had many things going its way. First, was the home country’s comfort level with the venue. It was the third tie involving Canada at the UBC arena in the past 13 months. The semifinal will be played in Serbia where it will be Canada’s opponent’s terms to dictate the terms of battle. Canada has actually been incredibly fortunate in that regards, having been favoured with four straight home-soil ties. That string will end in September.

Max Reinhart makes NHL debut TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Former Kootenay Ice sniper Max Reinhart made his professional NHL debut with the Calgary Flames in front of a home crowd during a 5-2 loss to the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Arena on Saturday night. Reinhart, who was recalled the same day from the Flames’ AHL affiliate, the Abbotsford

Heat, made it into the starting lineup on the left wing alongside Roman Cervenka and Mikael Backlund. Reinhart played 16:08 minutes over the course of the game, and logged some power play time at the end of the third period. Reinhart’s debut in Vancouver was a special moment, as he hails from West Vancouver

and played in front of family and friends. Max’s dad, Paul Reinhart, is a former NHL defenceman who played with both the Canucks and the Flames over his career in the pros. Reinhart is still with the Flames and will move to the centre for their next game in Denver against the Avalanche on Monday night.

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I am a 44-year-old guy who wears his heart on his sleeve. I met “Lisa” two years ago. I was fresh out of a divorce. Lisa was in terrible shape. Her mother had just died, and shortly after, she lost her fiance in a traffic accident. Then she moved back home to take care of her ailing father. It was love at first sight for me. But Lisa never fully grieved over her fiance. She told me he was her “soul mate,” and that she would never love another man the way she loved him. I told her I have all the patience in the world and would be there for her through her grief and sorrow. I knew she needed to deal with this in her own way, which included getting his name tattooed on her back. Again, I was patient and understanding. Lisa’s family began inviting me to their home. But her family had been exceptionally close to her fiance and began posting things on Facebook to remind Lisa of him. It finally reached the point where I had to say something, and I talked to Lisa’s cousin. I said posting such things keeps the fiance’s memory fresh in Lisa’s mind, which doesn’t help her heal. I asked the cousin to please get the family to stop doing this. Well, my request got back to Lisa, who became hostile and negative toward me. She broke things off. Annie, I love Lisa with every ounce of my being. Was I wrong to speak up? -- Lonely and Still in Love Dear Lonely: You meant well, but talking to Lisa’s cousin was inappropriate and appeared as if you were going behind her back and being controlling. Lisa has had a rough time. Regardless of what her family was posting online, she wasn’t ready to get back into the dating pool. It’s also likely that she will always connect you to this unfortunate time. Please move on. This ship has sailed. Dear Annie: I am an adopted 14-year-old and an only child. I would like to get in touch with my biological family. Everybody tells me to wait until I am 18, but I feel I should be able to contact at least one biological parent. From what my adoptive mom tells me, I have an older brother. I was also told that my parents tried to find my biological father, but out of the five names listed on the adoption papers, none of them matched. Is there any way to contact my family? Even if I can’t find my mom, is there a way I could find my brother and speak with him? -- Adopted in Arizona Dear Arizona: Please do not do this without the support of your family. Finding biological parents and siblings is not always the joyful reunion you dream of, and sometimes things don’t turn out well. It also can be hurtful to your adoptive parents if your relationship with them is undergoing changes, as it often does during the teen years, and you think your biological family will be “better.” There is a reason reputable organizations insist that you be 18 or older to search. Please ask your parents for help with the International Soundex Reunion Registry ( Dear Annie: “Pining for Rome” complains, “The foods and pastimes that I’ve become fond of are nonexistent in America.” Nonsense. Granted, she may not see games of bocce ball going on in the local park or find abbacchio brodettato on the menu at Denny’s, but in this global world, all the things available in Rome are available in the USA.

GORDON, Ian Michael August 21, 1942 - March 27, 2013 With sadness in our hearts, the family of Ian Michael Gordon announces his sudden passing on Wednesday, March 27, 2013 while on vacation in Hawaii at the age of 70 years. Ian leaves behind in mourning his loving wife of nearly 49 years, Cathy (nee Burns); his daughter and son in law Deb and Phil LeLievre; his son and daughter in law Glen and Laura Gordon and his grandchildren Erin and Jake Gordon and Evan LeLievre as well as family and friends the world over. Ian was born in Cranbrook, BC to James and Ann Gordon. Along with his four brothers (Dennis, Jack, Alan, Jim) and two sisters (Noreen, Mary), Ian was raised in a loving family filled with faith, fun and an appreciation of the great outdoors. From an early age, fishing, hunting and hockey were passions Ian both excelled at and enjoyed his entire life. Like his dad and all his siblings, Ian was a prolific story teller with a memory for events and detail that made his stories, while sometimes long, never dull. Edgar Allan Poe said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;To observe attentively is to remember distinctlyâ&#x20AC;?. That was Ian. Ianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans for a career in forestry changed quickly when on a chance trip to Calgary in 1961, he found himself enrolling in the Royal Canadian Air Force. Ian earned his pilotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wings in 1969 and began an incredible journey that would take him around the world several times. He flew into nearly every continent in the world and loved every country and learning about their culture and people. His biggest beef with the Cold War was that it prevented him from going into and meeting people in the eastern block countries. His slide shows after his trips were epic. If you paid attention, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d learn far more watching and listening to his stories then you ever could in a history, geography, or political science class. Flying Queen Elizabeth II in 1977 was an especially poignant trip. After more than 28 years in the RCAF (Ian was never a huge fan of unification and the term Canadian Armed Forces), he moved on to fly commercial charters and soon after landed his second career as an Aviation Instructor at Selkirk College in Castlegar, BC. He had perhaps his biggest career impact during those 12 years sharing his excellence and passion for flying with so many young pilots. Ian loved and respected his students and the feeling was mutual. After retirement in 2002, Ian and Cathy moved to Airdrie to enjoy life near their children. Ianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last decade on earth was spent doing the things he loved most including continuing to follow and assess world events, relaxing with his family, traveling, fly fishing with the best of the best, and doting on his three, in his words, â&#x20AC;&#x153;incredibleâ&#x20AC;? grandchildren. He was a lucky man. He was a wonderful man. Clear skies and smooth flying Ian. You will be missed. A Celebration of Ianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Life was held at FOSTERâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S GARDEN CHAPEL, 3220 - 4 Street N.W., Calgary (across from Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park Cemetery) on Saturday, April 6, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family via the website www.fostersgardenchapel. ca. If friends and family so desire, a donation may be made directly to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 200, 119-14 Street, N.W., Calgary AB T2N 1Z6.
