Local man asks to lease a portion of Western Financial Place’s parking lot for a seasonal go kart facility S A L LY M AC D O N A L D Townsman Staff

A local entrepreneur is seeking to start a go kart racing track on a portion of the Western Financial Place parking lot. Christian Hirn spoke to city council on Monday, April 8 about leasing one acre of the parking lot over summer to run a new go kart business, Mad Max’s Go Karts. “The parking lot sits empty for most of the summer time.

It’s already paved. All the infrastructure we would put in place would all be fully portable. We would be willing to lease the property from the City of Cranbrook in order to be able to set this up and see if we could make a go of it,” Hirn told council. Hirn said he has long hoped to start a go kart racing business but doesn’t have money available for start-up costs.

PRUNING SEASON: ISA certified arborist David Couse demonstrates proper apple tree pruning techniques at a Wildsight-sponsored workshop held at a private residence in Cranbrook on Saturday. Another workshop was held in Kimberley later that same day. Couse took the mystery out of the process and showed how proper pruning leads to better tree health and better fruit production. The workshops were part of Wildsight’s Apple Capture project, which seeks to put apples on local trees into the hands of people who want to use them. Apple picking, juicing and dehydrating equipment are available in both Cranbrook and Kimberley. Call 250-908-3276.

Centermount suspends plans for new mine ANGELA TREHARNE Fernie Free Press

Centermount Coal Ltd has just announced that it has suspended its exploration and development program at the Bingay Main metallurgical coal project located approximately 21




kilometres north of Elkford and on the western boundary of Teck’s Fording operation. The Chairman of Centermount’s Board, Jack Austin, stated that, “Our Bingay Main project has outlined in a prefeasibility

study completed in the fall of 2012, a deposit of nearly 200 million tonnes of raw coal with metallurgical qualities similar to those of Fording coal. Work to date has focused on defining proven and mineable reserves both by open pit and


underground methods, and by defining best environmental practices including proper control of selenium to avoid contamination of the Elk River watershed.”


Province turns down Kimberley’s application for deer-hazing permit A R N E P E T RYS H E N Townsman Staff

The City of Kimberley has been denied the experimental deer hazing permit it applied for late last month. The permit would provide a 48hour window to have a professional hazer come into the city and herd the deer out with dogs. Kimberley Mayor Ron McRae said the denial was a disappointment, as the Urban Deer Committee was looking for a permit to do a demonstration of the technique, which has been used in Banff, Jasper and Waterton. McRae said the city is look-

Kimberley city council decided to go back to the Ministry of Forest, Lands and Natural Resource Operations and ask that it reconsider its decision on the hazing permit. “We’ve been saying to the province: ‘Give us the opportunity or you the province should be doing research on these tools to manage the deer population,’” he said. “That isn’t necessarily just specific to culling.”

Lost Kootenays plumbs local nostalgia GREG NESTEROFF Nelson Star Reporter

Banff 6/-4


daily townsman / daily bulletin

A Facebook site devoted to images of this region from the 1950s to the ‘80s is proving wildly popular, with hundreds of photos and comments posted within weeks of its launch. Over 300 pictures have so far been uploaded to Lost Kootenays, which describes itself as a “journey in space and in time into the heart of the Kootenays.” More than half have been shared by locals. A browse reveals shots from the 1972 Silver City Days parade in Trail; the Balfour ferry terminal, late 1950s; and the Kimberley Snow Fiesta 1958. The page’s flagship image is of the 200 block of Baker Street in Nelson in the 1960s lit up at night. There are lots of pictures from earlier years too, including snapshots that have never been shared with a wider audience. Others are from vintage postcards. Users are encouraged to contribute images, home movies, or advertising, particularly of scenery or buildings but also events like parades or carnivals. Take a bow Zac Odin, a Creston writer and photographer, who spoke to the Star via email. How did you get the idea for Lost Kootenays? I have been gathering various images I came across on the internet of things that interested me for quite a while now, specifically of times that seem to have been lost. For example, I have gathered a large number of Sovi-

et-era snapshots, candid photos of normal people doing normal things in what we were led to believe was the Evil Empire. I grew up in the Yukon and about a year ago I found some old and very interesting images of Whitehorse while searching Google which I posted on an old blog and Facebook page. Most of these were postcards from the 1950s and 1960s showing a rather incongruous time – technological utopianism in the middle of nowhere. Not long afterwards I started following Vintage Los Angeles for similar reason. Recently I came across a lot of great images of the Kootenays. Naturally, I found these fascinating and thought others would as well and so I started a page following the model of Vintage LA. How would you sum up the goal of the site? The original goal was to show a time in the Kootenays that was somewhat neglected – the 1950s through the 1970s. I was born in the early 1970s and the ‘50s and ‘60s are, to me, a sort of golden age. Post-WWII affluence and then Cold War optimism in the face of the contradiction of nuclear destruction. A strange time when everything appeared to be new and people believed in the promises of the Space Age. Which is what appealed to me about pages like Lost San Francisco and Vintage Los Angeles to a large degree. However after the participation of many people, the page’s

liked various local pages and then I believe the I Love Creston page was one of the first to reshare an image of downtown Creston.

Are you surprised at the site’s popularity? Yes. I thought I might get some interest for the same reasons that there are other pages like this one but I did not expect that there would be so much.

Zac Odin is behind the popular Lost Kootenays, a Facebook tribute to bygone eras. focus has definitely changed, becoming more of a historical archive. But an archive of the people, not the elite. Free to add to and free to visit any time you like. Where do you find the images that aren’t otherwise credited? To begin with, Lost Kootenays is for entertainment and education. Nobody makes any money off it. Many of the images I posted in the early days of the site were found on Google, much like those on the other ‘lost’ sites, and as such are hard to source. Some of these first images are old postcards. When did the site launch and how did you initially advertise it? I started this site on March 22, uploaded some photos, etc. but didn’t do any promotion until the following Monday. I

Why do you think it’s touched such a nerve? I think there are a number of reasons. The obvious one is nostalgia and people remembering shared times and places. However, there is also the appeal of a vanished time, and I think this is what draws many younger people to the page, some of whom are still in high school. Many of these images are archetypal like, for example, the Peebles Motor Inn in Nelson. It is almost perfect technological utopianism — textured concrete, shiny surfaces, bright lights, etc. and now it is gone, and can never be replaced. One gets a feeling of deep longing for places like that. And sometimes it’s good to know that they simply just existed once. They are representatives of a Golden Age, whether that age was actually golden or not. There is obviously a historical appeal to this page as well that goes beyond memories. People simply just want to know the way things were and this deepens their experience of the area in which they live.

School District hosts regional Concours The Regional Concours d’art oratoire was held at the School District #5 offices in Cranbrook this year with participating students in grades 6 to 10 from Golden, Fernie and Cranbrook. Concours is a French-language public-speaking competition supported and promoted by Canadian Parents for French and organized in conjunction with school staff. The event happens across Canada, involving close to 100,000 students.  The competitions happen at the school, regional, provincial and national levels with thousands of dollars worth of prizes. The winners in their categories were as follows: School District 6 (Golden) Grade 6 1st place:  Robert Caldwell 2nd place:  Maeve Wilson Grade 7 1st place:  Madeline Archibald 2nd place:  Carrington Mitchell School District 5 (Cranbrook and Fernie) Grade 6 1st place:  Maeve Murtagh Grade 7 1st place:  Megan McCall 2nd place:  Ethan Heavey

Centermount suspends plans for new Elk Valley coal mine Continued from page 1 Mr. Austin advised that “the present global economy has reduced the demand for iron ore and therefore for metallurgical coal. “The advice of our financial advisors is to expect that price strengthening will take place by the summer of 2014. “Metallurgical coal producers are taking much lower prices today than in 2011 or in early 2012. The board

has therefore decided that raising the major investment funds to complete a final economic feasibility study should await a metallurgical coal price and steel industry market recovery as current financial proposals are excessively dilutive.” Centermount Coal Ltd is a private British Columbia company which has invested more than $20 million

of shareholders’ funds in its Bingay Main project. Centermount said they greatly appreciate the support they have received from the RDEK Area A Director, Mayors and Council of Elkford, Sparwood, and Fernie, the Elk Valley community in general and their Kootenay based suppliers. They also said they expect to resume the program in 2014.

Hazing application turned down Continued from page 1 He added that, at the moment, culling is the only deer management technique that the province is giving permits for. He is hopeful the province will take another look at hazing. “We think that in B.C. it is a technique that should be looked at, even though the provincial regulations are such that they prohibit that sort of activity, but there are always ways to make things happen, it’s just a

question of exploring that process,” he said. McRae said the ministry denied the application primarily because the current Wildlife Act prohibits activities like hazing. “The province did indicate that if the regulations were amended to allow a project like hazing to go forward then it would have to be done within a specific research project that would be rigorously un-

dertaken and critiqued,” he said. A deer cull is still being considered as well. “A cull was never off the table, there’s certainly the same direction from the urban deer advisory committee in terms of what the next steps might be in a deer cull,” he said, adding that communities like Kimberley need to be given every opportunity to explore techniques in deer management.

2nd place: Eliza Hughes Grade 10 1st place:  Mckinley Richards The winners have the opportu-

nity to attend the provincial Concours, being held this year on May 4 in Surrey. Concours relies heavily on the support of parent and community

volunteers and CPF would like to extend a huge thank you to Anne Beurskens, Philippe Lurol and Yvette Relkoff who volunteered to judge the students’ speeches.

“I don’t have an outrageous amount of funding to be able to purchase a property and apply for zoning changes to turn that into a recreational zoning,” he said. “My proposal is to see if we may be able to utilize a pre-existing facility within the city limits to test this out and do some market research and

studies to see if it would warrant purchasing a property in the future.” Hirn’s proposal is to lease about one acre of the Western Financial Place parking lot from May to September. The track and pits would be formed using stacked tires. A perimeter fence would enclose the facility. Hirn would repaint parking lines at the end of the season. Council liked the idea but

were concerned about noise levels. Hirn offered to provide council with research about noise from go kart tracks. City council asked Leisure Services to prepare a report on the feasibility of the proposal. Council will consider it again likely at its May 6 meeting. Hirn said it would only take about two weeks from approval to bring in the infrastructure and karts and prepare to open.

Kids Connection Preschool’s Fisher Class recently visited Finning Cranbrook as part of a ‘People at Work’ theme. This tour, the third annual, was a much anticipated field trip as the children have enjoyed their tours in past years. Finning staff showed the children around the shop, discussed safety at work, answered questions and showed them the big machines in the yard. A highlight was fitting the entire class into one grader bucket. The children enjoyed hearing about work at Finning and a few of them said they’d like to work there one day!

B.C. party leaders will take part in at least two debates, one on TV and one on radio, in the run-up to the May 14 provincial election. CKNW radio is host-

ing a leaders’ debate at 9 a.m. on Friday, April 26. Invited to take part are B.C. Liberal leader Christy Clark, NDP leader Adrian Dix, Green Party leader Jane Sterk and B.C. Conservative

New Democrats are hoping to bring up youth voter numbers with new legislation that lowers the age that voters can register. Michelle Mungall, Nelson-Creston MLA and New Democrat Advanced Education critic, was in Cranbrook this week talking to students at Mount Baker Secondary School about the new legislation, the Promoting Youth Vote Act. “It is an amendment of the Elections Act,” Mungall said. “Right now you have to be 18 to register to vote. We’re proposing that we reduce the voter registration age.” Mungall said it’s critical to get youth interested and involved at this early age, as at the moment, only one in five youth from ages 18-25 are registered to vote. She said that is pretty level across the board, including the East Kootenay. “This is a huge demographic that is not participating in our democracy and that’s never a good thing,” she said. The plan was recommended by Elections BC as a way to get

voters interested, and follows some U.S. states like Florida, Hawaii and Oregon, as well as countries like Australia in allowing voters to register prior to the age where voting is al-

“Right now you have to be 18 to register to vote … This is a huge demographic that is not participating in our democracy and that’s never a good thing.” Michelle Mungall lowed. Mungall said a major reason young people don’t vote is that they don’t feel they know enough about the process to feel comfortable voting. “There is an incredible amount of alienation with the democratic process,” she said. Mungall noted that post-secondary students are less likely to vote, despite a vested interest as B.C. students take on some of the largest student loans west of the Maritime provinces. She said the B.C. Liberals haven’t done much for

The BC Liberals government has put forth an RESP program, but Mungall said it is difficult to see who will benefit from it, as it most likely will be students 12 years down the road, not students today. Mungall noted that the New Democrats have earmarked $100 million for financial needs based grants to be used if the party is elected. Mungall told the students that if they want to find out more about the Promoting Youth Vote Act they could contact local New Democrat candidate Norma Blissett at normablissett.bcndp. ca. Both Blissett and Mungall were impressed by the thoughtful questions the students had on the election topic. “We just need to reach out to them,” Mungall said.

Adopt a Servile Cervine Service “A word to the wise ain’t necessary – it’s the stupid ones that need advice.” Bill Cosby “The place where optimism most flourishes is the lunatic asylum.” Havelock Ellis


hilst enjoying the balmy breezes and warm sun of this spring and walking in my neighbourhood, I noticed a figure waving to me. I ambled over the road, trying hard to recall a name and failing to do so, then stood and faced a fellow who was in his front yard, apparently standing waist deep in deer droppings, known colloquially as poop. The man, who was obviously of shorter statue than I am, could barely see over the winter’s accumulation of droppings but he persisted and told me that he’d recently been to a few city council meetings. I was still trying to put a name to the man and thought that, maybe, I had once tried to teach the fellow back in the old days in Mount Baker Institute for the Uneducable. I said, “You went to council meetings on purpose?” then added with incredulity, “And stayed awake?” The man muttered something unintelligible then climbed up into what appeared to be a wheelbarrow. I could now see all of

him, not an impressive sight. His name was Brian, Basil, Bert or something and he looked for the moment like a politician at the hustings, wherever they are, and talking about the usual political stuff. “They’re thinking of forming a panel to consider starting a committee to look into the possibility of inaugurating a department that will organize – wait for it – an Adopt a Servile Cervine Service in order to alleviate the problem of the over-population of deer in the city.” He sounded and looked just like someone who had suffered some years in my classes. Anyway, with a slight Peter breeze ruffling the two rehairs on my head Warland maining and wafting a familiar odour of deer excreta in my direction, I struggled with the fellow’s name and decided that it must be Basil and seemed to recall that the Basil I once tried to teach wasn’t noted for the veracity of his statements, especially regarding absenteeism and the lack of assignment completion. “You expect me to believe that nonsense?” I said. “Anyway, I’ve read nothing about this adoption service in the paper.” Two large mule-eared deer ambled by, eyes seeking fodder and sphincters loosening in readiness as I attempted to swallow Basil’s – maybe Brian’s – cockamamie story. The gist of this tale is that the council, wishing to alleviate the problems citizens

are having with deer and with gardens is thinking of getting folk to forgo the concept of adopting a child from Africa or Peru, a puppy from the SPCA, or even a stretch of highway from the hard-pressed provincial government and, instead, adopting a mulie or a white-tail and taking care of it, feeding it, keeping it off other folk’s gardens and generally curtailing its wanderings, i.e. making a pet out of it. “You mean bring the damn thing up like a dog?” I asked. “Take it for walks? Buy food for it?” “Yeah! Treat it like one of the family.” “I couldn’t be that mean,” I muttered. “You imply I should take it to the vet and have it neutered.” “You sent your kids to the vet?” I shook the cobwebs from my brain. I was definitely getting confused. I was being conned and it was well past April First. I asked, “So, are you going to adopt a servile cervine, a well-behaved deer, then?” I tried to imagine this Brian or whatever, strolling through Idlewild Park, plastic bag in hand and a mule deer on a leash. “Sure,” was the reply. “But, even if the plan doesn’t get through council, I’m gonna wait till there’s good frost and bag me one. The deep freeze is almost empty.” Brian – maybe Bert – clambered down off his wheelbarrow and, almost submerged in the cervine excrement, waddled off towards his house. I couldn’t see if his pants were actually on fire.

US beats Canada to win women’s world hockey championship

OTTAWA - Amanda Kessel scored the winner early in the third period Tuesday as the United States beat Canada 3-2 in the gold-medal game of the women’s world hockey championship. The brother of Toronto Maple Leafs forward Phil Kessel moved in on a 2-on-1 and roofed a shot over Canadian goalie Shannon Szabados at 3:09 of the third. Brianna Decker and Megan Bozek had the other goals for the U.S., which got two assists from Kendall Coyne. Courtney Birchard and Caroline Ouellette scored for Canada. Marie-Philip Poulin added a pair of assists. U.S. goalie Jessie Vetter made 14 saves for the win, while Szabados stopped 27 shots in the loss. Canada, which beat the U.S. 3-2 in a shootout in round-robin play, defeated the Americans 5-4 in overtime in last year’s final in Burlington, Vt. The U.S. and Canada have met in every final since the tournament’s inception in 1990. Canada holds a 10-5 lead in gold medals, but the U.S. has won five of the last seven tournaments. Canadian Press

LOOKING SHARP: The Kimberley Minor Hockey Novice program finished out their 2012-2013 season in style by sporting new goalie equipment. The Kimberley Elks and The Kimberley & District Community Foundation both made very generous donations to KMH that allowed the club to purchase 2 new sets of much needed beginner goalie gear as the existing equipment had become outdated and was in poor condition. In the picture above, Mason L’Heureux was testing out the new gear in its first game action during the novices home tournament this February. Minor Hockey would like to thank both the Elks and the KDCF for their support this year and recognize the contributions they make to both their organization and the many other community clubs to help keep them going year after year.

Thinking outside the lacrosse box Okanagan coach is working on building up interest in field lacrosse in Cranbrook

TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

A field lacrosse team in the Okanagan has had some Cranbrook representation for the last few years, and now the head coach is hoping to get even more local athletes interested by using scholarships as an incentive. Field lacrosse—as opposed to box lacrosse, which is played inside an arena—is the game that is played by NCAA schools, and Randy Reynolds, who coaches the Okanagan Sun Devils out of Kelowna, wants his young athletes to realize the types of opportunities that are available with post secondary scholarships. “The hard part with field lacrosse out here, is everybody’s played indoor, but nobody’s played field lacrosse,” said Reynolds. Reynolds is a lifelong lacrosse player and his coaching partner, Kevin Langdale, played the game at the NCAA and professional level. Cranbrook has the

local minor lacrosse association, however, players only compete in box lacrosse, which is played similar to hockey in an enclosed area with boards and nets at opposite ends, while field lacrosse opens up the game on a 100 metre by 55 metre grass surface. A few other Cranbrook players have played with the Sun Devils, and Reynolds wants to run a camp in Cranbrook over the summer to gauge the local interest in field lacrosse. Dakota Hollister, a local lacrosse player who has landed a scholarship with Bellarmine University in the U.S., plays field lacrosse with the Sun Devils, and Caine Manion, a young 15-year-old, is hoping to replicate that kind of success. Hollister played on numerous Midget teams in the Okanagan and did a stint with the Burnaby Mountain Selects, which got him noticed by Reynolds, who

asked the Cranbrook product to play for his team. Manion followed in the same footsteps, playing with the Kelowna Kodiaks and moving on to the Burnaby Mountain Selects, before getting in touch with Reynolds. As a club team, the Sun Devils don’t participate in an organized league, but rather attend tournaments in the Northwestern U.S., which allows his players to get scouted by top-rated colleges and universities. While Reynolds wants kids on his team to learn the field lacrosse game, he is also holding them to high academic standards. In the U.S., if athletes don’t get good grades in high school, they don’t play high school sports. That philosophy carries into college and university as well—coaches aren’t interested in recruiting athletes who don’t have grades that are up to par, according to Reynolds.

Bomber’s QB Buck Pierce vows to stay healthy

WINNIPEG - Buck Pierce wants to stay healthy and win games, and both he and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers will do what they can to make that happen. That includes avoiding plays which open him to more risk of injury. The Bombers have said Pierce is their starting quarterback man again going into training camp. The only backup they retained with any CFL experience is Justin Goltz. Pierce said he worked hard in the off-season and feels good. But he understands how disappointed fans were when he missed 11 games last season as the Bombers missed the playoffs. Canadian Press

School District No. 6 (Rocky Mountain)

Kimberley Zone


School District 6 is inviting all Three, Four and Five year olds to school! Our literacy event, Ready Set Learn, is for preschoolers. This event will be combined with our Kindergarten Orientation.


Local athlete Caine Manion is hoping to make his mark in field lacrosse. “The thought process behind that is, when we go to tournaments, and [university] scouts see our teams play—if every single kid on our team has a university grade point average, then our team’s worth looking at. “…So if all our kids are coming in with university style marks, then it’s very easy for scouts to watch us.”

NOTES: The Sun Devils went undefeated in round robin play at a tournament in Bellingham at the beginning of March with a roster that featured Hollister, Manion and Andrew Lafreniere. The only loss came to a high-powered squad representing Skyline High School out of Seattle. The Sun Devils run two teams in the U18 and U15 divisions.

• Parents/guardians will receive an informational kit with helpful tips for supporting their preschooler’s learning and development in reading, writing, and numeracy. • Obtain information about other local services that are available. • Each child will receive learning materials. • The Kindergarten children are invited into the classrooms to meet the teachers and spend time with their classmates before heading to the gym. Please join us at your neighborhood school: Lindsay Park Elementary School Thursday, April 18th, 9:30 - 11:00 Marysville Elementary School Thursday, April 18th, 12:45 - 2:15 Sponsors: Ministry of Education, Ministry of Children & Family Development, Ministry of Health Services. Hosted by: Marysville and Lindsay Park Elementary Schools.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) A new beginning becomes very possible. Express your enthusiasm for a project and for the direction in which you are heading. Once you are behind something, it becomes a reality. Share some of your ideas with friends and loved ones. Tonight: Find a reason for celebration. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You have a lot going on. Take your time deciphering your feelings, as they could change rapidly. Rather than act aggressively or get into a fight, stop to see what is happening within yourself. Once you can discuss this reaction, you will feel much better. Tonight: Not to be found. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) A friendship could take a sudden new twist or turn. You have worked so hard to get to a certain point that you hardly have had any time to relax. Stop and look around. Your feelings very likely will float to the surface, so take some time to deal with them. Tonight: Greet a change positively.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Pressure builds. You might be on the verge of a professional change, or perhaps you are heading in a new direction with a relationship where you look up to the person. Visualize more of what you want, and express your desires openly. Tonight: Out till the wee hours. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Keep reaching out to someone you care about who is not easily accessible. You have an opportunity for a new beginning here. You might want to rethink what has happened and what you want to happen. With clarity, success is more likely. Tonight: Let your imagination play out. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Work with an associate or a dear friend as a duo -- you might feel more empowered that way. This person often seems to share and act on the same feelings that you experience. Work on communication in order to strengthen your bond. Tonight: Chat over a lengthy dinner. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Defer to someone else. You

For Better or Worse

might feel like you have little choice right now. Your sense of humor makes others feel more relaxed, but sometimes you have to honor your needs. Others can be touchy. Know that it might have little to do with you. Tonight: Choose from many options. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You might want to have a long-overdue discussion with an associate or someone who could be instrumental in your day-today life. You don’t always have the control you desire. Count on this person’s understanding; he or she has good advice to offer. Tonight: Choose a stressbuster. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Answers come forward once you focus. Be open to brainstorming. Though you might vent some anger, you also will see the way around a hassle. Others share opinions more than new ideas, but their different perspectives still are helpful. Tonight: Take a long-overdue break. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You are open to change and are willing to let go of a need to have

certain matters go your way. In any case, a family member might be on the warpath. To calm down the situation, you might want to let go of being right. Make and return important calls. Tonight: At home. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You speak your mind, and others stop to listen. You might have a tone that comes off as angry when expressing your feelings to someone. Choose your words with care. Take responsibility for your side of an issue; you’ll feel better as a result. Tonight: Invite friends over. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Be aware of what you are offering. You might be overspending. Avoid taking a financial risk, no matter how logical it might seem. Be careful when swallowing your anger, as it could encourage spending or some other self-destructive habit. Tonight: Balance your checkbook first.

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I have been married to “Dennis” for eight years. Early on, Dennis couldn’t do enough for me. Now, if my car won’t start, he yells at me and says to call a tow truck. If I ask him to spend time with me, he always has other things to do. On the rare occasion when we attend a social event together, he abandons me so he can “work the room” and have a great time with everyone else. We arrive together and leave together, and the rest of the time, I sit alone, miserable and forgotten. Dennis will go above and beyond for others. It doesn’t matter if it’s the middle of the night, raining, snowing, spending money we don’t have, missing meals, birthdays, holidays and our daughter’s school programs. If it’s a chance to make himself look good, he’s there with a smile and compassion. I get the repairman to take care of me with a handshake and a bill. But when I ask Dennis to treat his family with the same enthusiasm, he calls me a selfish nag. Yes, I resent all the people he helps, because they get the side of my husband that belongs to me. I’m told to take care of myself because he’s too busy helping others and inflating his ego. I get whatever is leftover. I love Dennis, but I’m starting to feel that he only gave me his adoration and helpfulness because he was trying to win my heart. How do I deal with this? -- Wife of the Plumber with Leaky Pipes at Home Dear Wife: Some people put on a good show for others, but at home, they let down the facade. We recommend counseling, preferably with Dennis, but without him if necessary. We also suggest you stop relying on your husband to provide your social life. Instead of sitting “miserable and forgotten,” develop your conversational skills. Get involved in some local activities that interest you so you are less dependent on Dennis’s availability. You need to take better care of yourself. Dear Annie: I am a retired schoolteacher and would like to request that you stop recommending that high school students see their guidance counselors for any problems other than recommended course requirements for graduation. While it may be widely thought that they are there for guidance on many personal issues, most of them, in my experience, are the last person I would recommend a student speak to about family or emotional issues. This may sound harsh, but they are not compassionate and caring individuals. Perhaps they are in elementary and middle schools, but not in high schools. Their time is taken up with increasing state requirements for graduation and dealing with failing students who need course recovery classes. Their general attitude is that they have no time for anything else. -- Retired Teacher Dear Teacher: We know that high school guidance counselors are primarily there to help students navigate their future academic lives. But we are certain most would take issue with your comment that they are not compassionate and caring. Perhaps that was the case in your school, but there are many students whose lives have been changed by kind and concerned guidance counselors who understand that a student’s personal life can interfere with his or her academic success. Dear Annie: Please tell “Still Healing” that it is imperative she inform her stepbrother’s wife about the painful sexual abuse she suffered at his hands. My granddaughters have been through hell because their father sexually abused them. It might have been averted if his half-sister had reported the earlier sexual abuse and rape. When she learned what he had done to his daughters, she finally came forward, but it was too late. Thankfully, he is in prison now, and the girls are getting counseling, but they will suffer for many years. -- Sad Grandmother Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

wide world

Hop across the pond for a British adventure For an introduction to overseas travel, try London – it doesn’t have to be expensive, says Carla Nelson at Maritime Travel


ne of the great cities of the world – London, England! If you have not visited, you must. It is easy to get there and get around; they speak English (the proper way!); it is historic and cultural; and of course we have the Commonwealth connection to the Queen (if the flag’s up, she’s in residence at ‘Buck’ Palace – watch for it). So put London on your bucket list! It’s a great introduction to overseas travel if you haven’t yet done so. As with most of Europe, the downside of travel across the pond is the value of our dollar compared to the Pound Sterling or the Euro. Currently, $1 CAD will only buy 56 GBP, but it’s way better than it used to be. So be prepared for the prices, and look for the deals. It is possible to visit London without busting your budget. Look for free, or almost free, ways to see the city. Get an aerial visit of more than 55 landmarks on the London Eye, a type of ferris wheel high above the city. For $30 you can do the full loop in 30 minutes. Then go visit the National Gallery near Trafalgar Square (Rembrandt, Monet, Picasso and Van Gogh); it’s free. Wander through Hyde Park where you can visit the popular markets at Camden and Portobello Road. You can see the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain, wander through Kensington Gardens and stop for a splurge at the Orangery for a ‘royal’ lunch or afternoon tea. Other inexpensive ways to tour the city include: London Bus Route #4 - Waterloo, Houses of Parliament, Fleet Street, St. Paul’s Cathedral and Islington; or Route #88 Regent and Oxford Streets, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and across the Thames. Before you go, order an Oyster Card for about $40. This is a

pre-loaded card for use on the Tube (subway), bus and rail systems and will save you all sorts of aggravation trying to figure out the best mode of transport to get somewhere. And one of the best activities in London is people watching from an outdoor café sipping a glass of wine in Covent Gardens, maybe listening to some street performers. Just be sure to ask for prices before you settle in - last time I went, my lovely glass of wine outdoors listening to a string quartet cost me 9GBP, about $15! Don’t forget about shopping this can be inexpensive if you window shop, or very expensive if you get your groove on in Harrod’s! The only souvenir I could afford in Harrods’s was a champagne stopper, which I bought many years ago, and still works great, and that stylized green H logo is still a conversation starter! The theatre district in London is world renowned. All the Broadway shows are playing London at one time or another. If you do not have your heart set on a new release, you can pick up tickets for 50 per cent off, at the same-day ticket booth in Leicester Square. I saw fabulous productions of Evita and Blood Brothers on my last trip. Great seats for about $35-50 a ticket. Rather than spending money on an expensive pre-theatre meal in a high-end restaurant in the theatre district, check out Chinatown next to Leicester Square for some really great and inexpensive food.  Although England is not known for its great cuisine, in London it is far different. There is every kind of food available and some very wellknown chefs - think Gordon Ramsay and Alain Ducasse, both with three-starred Michelin restaurants. And I have eaten the best Indian food in London in small family restaurants.

Iconic London sights: Big Ben, a double decker bus, and a red phone box.

Spot landmarks from the London Eye, a giant ferris wheel that dominates the city skyline.

If you want to go traditional, try the Devonshire cream with your crumpets at tea time, or the fish and chips wrapped in newspaper in an English pub. And they do have pretty good ale! Accommodation in London is varied. For inexpensive digs during the summer, you can stay on campus in the dormitories at most universities and colleges, like the University of Westminster. Expect to pay about $50-100 per night. A quaint bed and breakfast will cost approximately $150 per night. I prefer boutique hotels, like the St. James Hotel and Club, in a great location near Piccadilly. This was once a gentleman’s club renovated into 60 suites, and really makes you feel like you are back in the Victorian age. Prices range from $250-300 per night. Or you can choose to live like royalty and stay in those famous hotels – the Waldorf, Claridge’s, the

Savoy. Grand and luxurious, complete with English butlers, concierge, valet and more – for only $400-600 per night!     We have many nonstop flights from Calgary or Vancouver to London, either Heathrow or Gatwick airports. Charters to Gatwick can be quite inexpensive in off seasons, such as May and September. The round-trip fare can be as little as $400, but beware, taxes in the UK are very high, so the total price will be $1000 or more. If you don’t pack too heavy, you can take the tube from Heathrow to central London for just a couple of pounds. Or take the bus, the Heathrow Express or Gatwick Express. To get around the city, the tube is well-organized and inexpensive, so it doesn’t matter that much where your accommodation is – you will be able to quickly get to the centre of the city. But you should try a London cabbie at least a couple times, they are very knowledg-

able and entertaining! Most trips will only cost a few ‘quid’ and ‘pee’, maybe a ‘fiver’ or a ‘tenner’ (don’t worry, you’ll catch on). Best time to go there is spring or fall. The weather will be pleasant, but not too warm, about 12-15C, good for sightseeing. Always take your ‘brelly’, but you won’t need it too much in April or May, the lowest rainfall months (August is the highest). Of course, London is an exciting city to visit. But it is also a great hopping off point to many parts of the UK and Europe. The Eurostar will take you through the Chunnel and in a couple hours, you can be in Paris! England itself has lots to offer outside of London. Next time, I will talk about my experiences in the Cotswalds. For more information, contact Carla Nelson, Branch Manager, Maritime Travel, 250-489-4788, on Baker Street in Cranbrook.
