Proudly serving Cranbrook and area since 1951

$2.4 billion worth of buildings within the East Kootenay lie in flood hazard areas, report finds SALLY MACDONALD Townsman Staff

A flood hazard study has found that about 36 per cent of the total assessed value of improvements within the Regional District of East Kootenay, including municipalities, lies in an area prone to flooding. That is equal to $2.4 billion of building infrastructure, according to the report prepared by Vancouver applied earth sciences company BGC Engineering. “The first surprising result is the proportion of infrastructure that is located in areas that have been mapped as potentially subject to flood hazard,” engineer

Kris Holm told the Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK) board of directors at a committee meeting on Thursday, April 4. “It’s not an estimate of the potential building damage costs that could happen during any particular flood hazard scenario – that would be much lower,” he said. “This is likely an overestimate of the damage that could occur during any particular flood event, although it is perhaps a proxy for the importance of flooding as something to think about in the district.”

Out of tragedy comes hope The deaths of two young people from cancer has resulted in Canada’s first childhood cancer awareness organization BARRY COULTER

The families of two young people who died last year are hoping that something especially good will arise out of the tragedy. Jacey Uphill of Cranbrook and Ty Sparks of Calgary both passed away last year, after fighting their own battles with cancer. The two bonded while undergoing treatment at a Calgary hospital, and decided they wanted and needed to increase awareness of childhood cancer. And thus 2Believe — Canada’s first childhood cancer

awareness organization — was born. Jacey and Ty conceived of the concept and designed the logo for 2Believe, which at this stage is partnering with the Helping Families Handle Cancer Foundation. Marnette Uphill, Jacey’s aunt, said that despite the harsh realities of their illness and treatments, both Jacey and Ty wanted to be active in their communities about raising awareness of childhood cancer.

The Good Ol’ Goats, which formed in 2011, 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. Angus Liedtke said the band is on a high to have made it this far. “My dreams of becoming a professional musician are coming true and it’s a great feeling,” he told The Townsman. The Newfoundland band are formidable opponents, he went on. “Being up against Sherman Downey is also fantastic. They are a great group with lots of

loyal fans, so it’s pretty intimidating,” said Angus. Votes have been cast for the Goats from across the country, but support from their home town has been overwhelming. “Thank you to everyone who has voted and supported us. It means the world to us,” said Angus. The Good Ol’ Goats submitted their track ‘The Train’ in the Searchlight contest back in February, among hundreds of Canadian up-and-coming bands. “When we wrote our song, we were still a brand new group, we didn’t ever think that “The Train” would be played on Q with Jian Ghomeshi at such a national level,” said Angus. “Overall, it’s been a very fun experience and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.”

Jimsmith development faces opposition Plans to subdivide a 54-hectare property on the southern end of Jimsmith Lake face criticism by a community group and some elected officials Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

A proposed development at Jimsmith Lake was given first reading by the regional district last week, despite opposition by both Cranbrook directors and a community group. The Daprocida development covers 54 acres on the south end of Jimsmith Lake. The developer has applied for an amendment to the Regional District of East Kootenay’s (RDEK) Rockyview official community plan to rezone and subdivide the property into 17 residential lots. Fifteen of the lots will between one hectare and 1.5 hectares in size; the remaining two lots will be two hectares. A park will be maintained on 1.9 hectares of the property. On Thursday, April 4, the RDEK’s planning committee heard from a consultant for the developer who outlined the proposed zoning changes. The developer agreed to place several restrictions on the property, protecting the piece of land intended for park use, promising not to remove a band of trees along the north and south boundaries that protect the existing views from adjacent properties, and contributing $1,175 per lot to the RDEK for road maintenance in the City of Cranbrook and future trail development in the Jimsmith area. Area C director Rob Gay, who looks after that area, was satisfied with the development agreement, as was the majority of the board, and it was given first reading and sent to the public consultation stage during the Friday, April 5 meeting. But five of the 15 directors were opposed to the development: Cranbrook’s Mayor Wayne Stetski and

Coun. Bob Whetham, Canal Flats Mayor Ute Juras, Sparwood Mayor Lois Halko, and Elkford Mayor Dean McKerracher. Mayor Stetski said the development goes against the three-year-old Rockyview Official Community Plan (OCP). “It’s also in conflict with the Cranbrook OCP, Jimsmith Lake Community Association presented their displeasure with this proposal, the Area C advisory planning commission have mutually agreed that one-hectare lots are not appropriate. It does encourage sprawl, it doesn’t encourage smart growth which I think should be of importance to this table,” said Stetski. Coun. Whetham said that regional district staff put in a great deal of time and effort to put together the Rockyview OCP. “Plans do need to be amended from time to time as circumstances change or plans become out of date. But nothing has been brought forward to suggest that is the case here,” said Whetham. “The public was already consulted during the development of the plan and the advisory planning commission has confirmed this direction. It should not be necessary for affected residents and landowners to have to spend more time and resources to try and convince the RDEK board to maintain its adopted policies. I don’t believe this is a necessary step, and I really think it is a discredit to all the time and effort that went into preparing this plan in the first place.” A public hearing on the development will be held on Tuesday, April 23 at 7 p.m. at the RDEK board room in Cranbrook.

A 17-lot subdivision at the southern end of Jimsmith Lake will be given a public hearing later this month after the Regional District of East Kootenay board gave one reading to a bylaw amendment last week.

Floods a hazard for $2.4 billion worth of EK buildings Continued from page 1

Most of the flood hazard areas are outside of municipalities, the study found. Area A – around Fernie and Sparwood — has the highest priority rating; followed by Area F — between Canal Flats and Invermere; then Area C — around Cranbrook; Area E — Wasa and Skookumchuck; Area G — north of Radium; and finally Area B — around Koocanusa. Within municipalities, Fernie has the highest rating, followed by Elkford and Canal Flats, then Invermere, Radium Hot Springs, and finally Cranbrook, Kimberley and Spar-

wood. The report also took in climate change predictions and applied them to flood hazards in the regional district. The study summarized projected climate change over the next 100 years. “To sum it up, by the year 2070-2099, models suggest we will see in the district a general increase in annual temperatures, a decrease in summer precipitation, an increase in winter precipitation, a decrease in spring snowfall, a general decrease in extreme snowpacks, an increase in the intensity and frequency of short, high intensity

Parts of Wasa were heavily flooded last year. precipitation events, and somewhat of an increase in extreme precipitation for the north-

ern versus the southern areas of the region,” said Holm. “Some of the pro-

Mike Turner file photo

jected results (of climate change) are that we may see extended flood hazard seasons:

later autumn floods, earlier spring floods, increased secondary peak flows for the flows occurring in the autumn, potentially an increase in the number of high flow events if there is an increase in intense precipitation, and increased frequency of rain on snow events, which is a driving factor for flooding.” Landslides have different triggers, he went on. For example, more forest fires could bring more intense run-off, which could bring landslides. “In general, there is potential for increased debris flow activity over the next 100 years, an increase in peak dis-

charge rates which may result in increased landslide activities, changed tidal patterns, and possibly, depending on the processes, a reduced effectiveness of existing dykes and flood infrastructure,” said Holm. The flood hazard study was prepared using existing data as the first step towards a comprehensive regional flood management plan. The RDEK board of directors have not yet approved funding for the next steps of the plan. On Friday, April 5, the board postponed consideration of the study to wait for further information.

Police put an end to the great horse escape Arne Petryshen Townsman Staff

Cranbrook police had to wrangle up some escaped horses Tuesday morning as a call came in from the area near Highlands Elementary School. The horses had somehow gotten loose from a nearby property and were seen roaming the area before RCMP

were called in to round them up. “I don’t know how they got through the fence, but they got through a fence somewhere,” Cranbrook RCMP Cpl. Pat Prefontaine said. Cst. Haley Pinfold and Cpl. Rod Hrehirchuk arrived at the last known location of the horses at around

8:15 a.m. They proceeded to track the horses down. It ended up taking just over an hour to round up the two horses, thanks in part to the help of a few nearby residents with horse wrangling skills. Beth Crawley lives in the neighbourhood and said her husband Doug noticed the horses walking down the street.

When he told her about them, her first thought was to help catch them. They jumped in their truck, grabbing a couple of halters and a carrot along the way, and headed out to help find the horses. “I knew that it would be much easier to chaperone them if they had halters on,” Crawley said.

They lost sight of the horses, but down the road they came across their neighbour Brian Chore with two RCMP officers, and the two horses. “(Brian) had arrived with some rope and they made some makeshift rope halters,” she said. The three of them had roped the horses in

with the make-shift halters, though Crawley gave them the proper halters she had brought, as they fit better. Crawley said she noticed one horse had some minor cuts on its body, so she suspected that it was the leader and had orchestrated the escape, while the other smaller horse had likely just tagged along

as an accomplice. She was happy the events had a positive ending. The two officers took charge of the horses, and backtracked in the opposite direction to find the owners. Prefontaine confirmed the officers identified the owners and brought the horses back home.

Green Building Conference features energy efficient renos invited to Friday night’s events. “Saturday’s program features two workshop streams focusing on either energy efficient home renovations or a variety of green or alternative building methods and materials,” said Jensen-Shill. “We will have two days filled with the latest in green building, high performance renovations, net zero and passive homes.” Jensen Shill encourages anyone with an interest in building and renovating to come along. “The event really is a great investment of time and money for anyone in the industry,” she said. “Builders, designers, realtors, or anyone considering building or renovating with an eye on the environment will all benefit from the conference.” Kimberley building inspector Andy Christie is keen to see renovators and builders attend. “When you consider the amount of time and money that people invest in either building or

renovating their homes,” he said, “the cost of registration and time spent attending the conference is well worth the amount of knowledge and resources that participants come away with, not to mention the payback down the road due to decreased energy consumption.” Early bird rates for registration are available until April 19.

The courage of the read-ins


ola Hendricks was not afraid. It was in June of 1962 when she walked into the public library in Birmingham, Alabama. The 30-year-old insurance writer approached the circulation desk, and politely requested a book. The library staff told Hendricks she was unwelcome, and refused to serve her “because she was a Negro.” One of the librarians then told her to try one of the “black” libraries the city had and ask one of the “black” librarians there for the book. Lola Hendricks didn’t go to any of the separate but equal African-American libraries — she went directly to the courthouse and filed a suit against the city for not having integrated its libraries. Even though it was illegal, racial segregation was strictly enforced in cities all through the American South. Birmingham was not only the most segregated city in the entire nation, it was also one of the most violent. Lola Hendricks was not afraid — but no one would ever blame her if she was. Birmingham was a city known for biting back. The city was ground zero for the American Civil Rights Movement. This was where the Freedom Riders were attacked and severely beaten; where the Ku Klux Klan was free to terrorize and murder; where Martin Luther King was attacked and jailed; and where bats, fire hoses, attack dogs, and eventually dynamite would be used on the city’s children. The city’s

mayor had stated the libraries would only integrate “at gunpoint,” and the police commissioner hated African-Americans to the point of sheer lunacy. Juliet Morgan — a white librarian from Montgomery — complained in a letter to the newspaper that it was untenable that public libraries professed to be institutions of democracy and freedom, but excluded half of the city’s population due to the coBOOKNOTES lour of their skin. This Mike Selby simple act created an overwhelming amount of hostility towards her, and the mayor demanded her employment be terminated. The library she worked at was boycotted, with numerous members tearing up their cards in a mass protest. Morgan also received numerous death threats both at work and at home. Returning home from work she found all her windows smashed and a cross burning on her front lawn. Overcome with fear, she committed suicide. This is the setting in which a group of courageous people fought to integrate the public library. While Hendricks waited for the courts to enforce the law, a young student named U.W. Clemon entered the public library, sat beside some white patrons, and did the unthinkable: He began to read a book. Clemon was the first African-American patron to successfully use the Birmingham Public Library (he also became the first African-American federal judge). And since Clemon’s presence

didn’t cause a disturbance, or the much feared racial-war, the library board voted to desegregate all of their branches. By the time Hendricks’ lawsuit was heard by the court, it was no longer necessary. These actions — what would become to be known as the “read-in” movement — were happening throughout the American South, as libraries voluntarily or by threat of legal sanctions integrated. Some experienced conflict and violence while others were able to integrate quietly. And whatever the means, voluntarily or screaming and kicking, they all got there. This story is not complete without mentioned the conspicuous silence of the American Library Association — the governing body of United States libraries. While against segregation on paper, the ALA took zero action to help anyone integrate the libraries. “When a book is banned in the smallest hamlet, there is a vigorous protest,” wrote an ALA member from New York. “But when a city takes away the right of citizens to read every book in the public library, we say nothing.” The “read-in” of the Civil Rights Movement forever changed libraries and librarianship, just as the greater movement changed the society these libraries belonged to. Civil Rights leader Vernon Johns commented, “This story in years to come, in generations to come, is going to be really a story that will be impossible to believe.” One certainly hopes so.

What’s Up?

Letters to the Editor

Give It Up For Hunger

In a country as affluent as Canada, hunger is unacceptable. Yet, close to 900,000 Canadians will visit a food bank for assistance this month alone. Of those, 38 per cent are children or youth. Hunger is often a hidden issue, and we are working to change that fact with Hunger Awareness Week. Here in Cranbrook, the rise in need is represented by an increase of 4.8 per cent from 2011 to 2012 in those turning to us for support, with more than 9,410 individuals. In Kimberley the rise in need is represented by an increase of 12 per cent since 2010, and 3,082 individuals. But we can change this statistic. We’re asking Canadians to Give It Up for Hunger on Wednesday, May 8, by putting food out of reach by fasting for a day and challenging themselves to give up breakfast, lunch and dinner. In fact, we have even challenged our government officials to also give it up for hunger – by fasting an entire day. For Hunger Awareness Week last year, over 150 parliamentarians and staff fasted to show their support for the hundreds of thousands of Canadians who struggle with hunger. We hope that people will share their experiences and thoughts on this challenge by going to, asking their politicians to join us in fasting on May 8 and supporting us. We can work to make a difference for the hundreds of individuals in our community who turn to our food

bank for support each month. By learning about hunger and experiencing it personally, we can all change the way we think about hunger and activate the changes needed to reduce it. During Hunger Awareness Week May 6-10, the Cranbrook and Kimberley Food Banks will be working with volunteers from Investors Group. We encourage Canadians to Give it Up for Hunger, to become more conscious of hunger and what it feels like to go without food. Visit for more information. You won’t regret it.

I would like to give Ken Haberman a big thank you for expressing his feelings towards the City of Cranbrook planning to demolish the former Cranbrook Ambulance Building, made of bricks from the power plant. I would like to show you where the bricks came from. Please turn to Page 29 in the Cranbrook and District Key City Chronicles 1898-. At the bottom of the page, the photo shows the high smokestack of the steam-generating plant, which had a capacity of 600 tons of coal. The power plant was located on the west highway, just a few hundred yards from where the west arch was located on Van Horne Street and Third Street, just across from Guido’s Store. Please save the building.

Mount Baker field hosting high school soccer matches TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

It won’t be a formal tournament, but high school soccer will be in session this Friday and Saturday at the Mount Baker Secondary School field. The senior girls team, fresh off a successful opening tournament in Kelowna that saw them battle their way into the final, will host five other teams from around the region in a chance for everyone to get some more game time experience. Last weekend’s tournament in Kelowna was a impressive start for the team, even though they lost in the final. However, everyone is working on improving as a team and looking forward to the next challenge, according to Deanna Barnes, a Grade 12 student on the team. “We were communicating really well on the field and were supporting each other,” said Barnes. “There was definitely some rough things that we can work on but for the most part, we played really well.”

And those rough things the team wants to improve? “Moving off the ball to help your teammates out more, make the passes easier,” Barnes continued. “We’ve been working a lot on ball control and making hard passes and moving a lot off the ball.”

Teams from Creston, Kimberley, Fernie and Invermere will make the trip to Cranbrook for the exhibition action this weekend, but the Baker squad is eyeing up one particular match, said Barnes. “Selkirk [Kimberley]—we always try to beat them,” smiled Barnes. The girls have three games on Friday at 9 a.m., noon and 3 p.m. and finish everything off on Saturday with a 10:30 a.m. match at the Mount Baker field.

Blue Jays claim outfielder Casper Wells off waivers TORONTO - The Toronto Blue Jays have claimed outfielder Casper Wells on waivers from the Seattle Mariners. Wells batted .228 for the Mariners in 2012 with 12 doubles, three triples, 10 home runs and 36 RBIs. He was designated for assignment by Seattle on March 31. The Grand Rapids, Mich., native has a career Major League batting average of .246 with 25 home runs and 80 RBIs over three seasons with Detroit and Seattle. To make room on the 40-man roster, the Blue Jays have designated right-handed pitcher Alex Burnett for assignment. Canadian Press

Local boxers ready for the ring TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

More Cranbrook boxers are gearing up for the upcoming B.C. Golden Gloves tournament his weekend, as Gage Duthie and his brother, Ducan, will be stepping into the ring to represent the Eagles Boxing Club. Also hoping to get some action inside the ropes is Dylan Clark, a young 12-yearold athlete who already has a couple bouts under his belt. The B.C. Golden Gloves is one of the biggest boxing events in the province, and Eagles Boxing Club coach Bill Watson is hoping to draw 75 entrants from across Western Canada when the event kicks off on Saturday at the Cranbrook Curling Centre. The youngest competitive fighter of the club, Dylan Clark, is itching to get into the ring in front of a hometown crowd, even though he is a little nervous. “I’ve had a couple friends and a teacher say they’d come watch if I ever fight here,” said Clark. “I’m nervous, but I can’t wait to step into the ring.” It won’t be a new experience for the 12-year-old boxer, as he already has three bouts under his belt. Clark has been boxing for less than a year, and originally got involved with the club as a way to cross-train for rep hockey,

before upgrading to the competitive side of the sport. “I like to be competitive and it’s an aggressive sport,” Clark said. He’s picked up a few things over his two wins and one loss that makes up his fledgling boxing career. “You learn keeping your hands up and defending yourself,” Clark said. “Hit and don’t be hit.”

Watson is excited about his young charge, and knew as soon as Clark came through the doors that he could make an impact in the ring. “Dylan is an excellent example of a prospect. He’s the type of kid—it’s like putting a quarter in one pocket and pulling a dollar out of the other,” said Watson. “He’s just a top notch prospect and he’s starting at the right age where by the time he’s able to compete for a national title, he’s going to have 15 or 20 fights under his belt, which is what he’s going to need if he

goes back east against those boxers out of Quebec and Ontario.” Watson’s most experienced boxer, Gage Duthie, is hoping to get more than just one bout during the weekend tournament. Duthie already has eight fights and will soon be competing in the open category. “He’s had eight bouts and he’s getting close to being an open boxer, which is 11 fights,” said Watson. “Once you’ve had your tenth bout, that next fight, you’re an open boxer, which means he could be boxing anybody with any number of fights. “…Like the rest of these boxers, he needs some good competition to improve and the Golden Gloves, it’s a pretty popular division, that 132- pound, 60 kilo division, so hopefully we can get him a couple of fights and then after that, we’ll just keep preparing for provincials at the end of May.” Duthie said he’s been lined up against a boxer out of Saskatchewan who is the same age and in the same weight class. He’s eager to get into the ring in his hometown after a fight fell through last fall at the Rumble in the Rockies. No matter who he’s facing, Duthie has a plan for approaching the bout. “Take the centre. Keep him on the side ropes,” Duthie said. “Don’t waste all my energy on the first round—save it up for the third round and finish strong in the third round.”

Howard looking ahead to Olympic trials GREGORY STRONG Canadian Press

TORONTO - There is just one major title missing from Glenn Howard’s resume. The Canadian curling legend has won just about every significant event over his storied career but he has yet to step onto the Olympic podium. The 2014 Winter Games might just be his last opportunity to do so. Howard has already qualified for the Canadian Curling Trials this fall. If he emerges victorious at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, he would represent Canada next February in Sochi, Russia. “It’s on my bucket list to get to an Olympics,” Howard said Wednesday. The Midland, Ont., native started curling over 30 years ago and is still at the top of his game. He won the 2012 Tim Hortons Brier and earned his fourth world title later in the year. Howard and teammates Wayne Middaugh, Brent Laing and Craig Savill have been strong again this season. The veteran skip is in

top spot on the World Curling Tour’s Order of Merit and he won bronze at the recent national playdowns. Howard said his team will likely sit down in the next week to look back at the last few years to determine what they need to do so they can peak at the Dec. 1-8 Olympic trials. “You want to have your best performance in December and then hopefully you win that and then have it in February,” Howard said after a promotional appearance at Yonge-Dundas Square. “I don’t see a lot of changes. We kind of like what we’ve done. Our last two years have been pretty successful. “A couple of weeks we weren’t that happy about. We’re not sure why and that’s what we’ve got to figure out. We don’t really know what that formula is but we’re going to try to figure that out too.” Howard will be one of the favourites in the final Grand Slam of the season - The Players’ Championship - set for April 16-21 at the Mattamy Athletic Centre (formerly Maple Leaf

Gardens). With a number of top international teams in the field, the event will have an Olympic-type feel. Howard, who turns 51 in July, knows this year will probably be his last chance to get to the Games. “I don’t know whether I can go another four years,” he said. “Maybe, I don’t know. But I have to treat this like it is. Obviously this is our No. 1 focus. We’re in the trials and hopefully (we’ll) win that to represent Canada in Sochi, Russia. It would be the typical dream come true and my chances are getting less and less and I know that, just due to my age. “It would absolutely

be the highlight of my career if we could ever pull that off and get to Russia.” Howard won national and world titles with his brother Russ as skip in 1987 and 1993. Glenn was skip for Brier and world championship victories in 2007 and 2012. Howard and fellow veteran skips Jeff Stoughton of Manitoba and Kevin Martin of Alberta have already qualified for the Olympic trials. The rest of the eight-team men’s field has yet to be determined. Some of the country’s top young skips perhaps Mike McEwen, John Epping or 2013

Brier champion Brad Jacobs - might be in the mix as well. “They’re the up-andcomers for sure,” Howard said. “Whether it’s a changing of the guard - I don’t like that phrase but it’s going to happen sooner or later, there’s no doubt.” Martin won Olympic gold at the Vancouver Games in 2010. He beat Howard in the 2009 trials in Edmonton to qualify. Jacobs, who won silver last week in his first world championship appearance, will also be in the 15-team men’s field at The Players’ Championship. Epping is the defending champion.

Blue Jackets pack on experience while playing pressure-packed games RUST Y MILLER Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio There are a lot of reasons why the Columbus Blue Jackets won’t make the playoffs, and really only one why they might. Last in the NHL not so terribly long ago, they’ve surprised every-

one all season. Why not once more? A cynic would point out they have too many road games (6) and too few at home (2); that the remaining opponents are daunting; and that there are too many good teams to overcome. Yet after Tuesday

night’s 4-0 victory over San Jose, the young and restless Blue Jackets are just two points behind eighth-place Detroit with eight games left to play. If they make it, or if they don’t, the club figures to gain from the experience.





Bayern Munich wins 2-0 at Juventus to progress to Champions League semifinals DANIELL A MATAR Associated Press

TURIN, Italy - Bayern Munich continued its march toward a second consecutive Champions League final with a 2-0 win at Juventus on Wednesday, securing a 4-0 win on aggregate and a place in the semifinals. Mario Mandzukic all but killed off the tie in the 64th minute, heading in a rebound to leave Juventus needing to score four goals in 26 minutes. Substitute Claudio Pizarro added Bayern’s second in stoppage time, after Arjen Robben had earlier hit the post for the German champions.

The only sour note for Bayern was a booking for Mandzukic after a clash with Giorgio Chiellini. The striker will miss the team’s next match. The victory keeps Bayern in the hunt for a treble this season after winning the Bundesliga with a record six games to spare on Saturday. It has also reached the semifinals of the German Cup. In Wednesday’s other match, Barcelona advanced to the semifinals on the away goals rule after drawing 1-1 with Paris Saint-Germain to see the contest finish 3-3 on aggregate. Borussia Dortmund and Real Ma-

drid will be the other clubs in the draw on Friday. “It doesn’t matter who we meet, everyone in the last four can win it, us included,” Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes said. “It won’t be easy for anyone. I’m sure everyone respects us, we’ve reached the final twice in the past three years. “It’s not as easy as it seems to play a really important game four days (after winning the league) so really congratulations to my players. If we had continued to play as we did in the first 20 minutes we certainly wouldn’t have won.”

BARCELONA, Spain - Lionel Messi came off the bench to help Barcelona fight back for a 1-1 draw with Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday and reach the Champions League semifinals for a sixth year in a row. Barcelona advanced on the away goals rule after its 2-2 draw in Paris last week meant the contest finished 3-3 on aggregate, but not without showing just how much it depends on Messi against major opponents. Messi, who had injured his hamstring a week earlier, was only cleared to play an hour before kickoff. He went on in the 62nd minute with his team losing 1-0 after Javier Pastore’s opener. It took him nine minutes to start the decisive move that Pedro Rodriguez finished off to keep Barcelona in the hunt for its fourth Champions League title in eight seasons. Messi has dominated many a match for Barcelona on its way to trophy success in recent seasons, but his importance and leadership for the Catalan club was rarely more evident than on Wednesday night. “Messi is a very important player and he

put in a great effort,” Pedro said. “He was the catalyst. We changed after he came on and we have to thank him for that.” Barcelona was a different team with Messi though he was probably not at full strength- compared to the lacklustre side that PSG toyed with while the Argentina international watched from the dugout. Barcelona was almost

unrecognizable for stretches in the first half without its star, as it lost its nerve and became sloppy in its trademark passing. “(Messi) is the best player in the world,“ Barcelona defender Gerard Pique said. ”It doesn’t matter if he’s a little bit injured, he can change everything. We knew that having him on the pitch would be important.“

Sports All eyes on Tiger Woods at the upcoming Masters Doug Ferguson Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Ga. - The first tee shot clattered through a pair of pines on the left side of the 13th fairway, finally landing on the wrong side of Rae’s Creek. Tiger Woods tried again, and this wasn’t any better. Fans peered across the fairway and only heard the ball rifle through some bushes. “He’s hitting another one,” a man announced from the gallery. The third shot with a fairway metal caused them to retreat until it turned with a slight draw, clipping a pine branch and settling in the second cut of rough. Woods played nine holes Wednesday morning in his final tuneup for the Masters, and how he played was of little consequence. Even so, that snapshot from the 13th tee was another reminder how quickly the best plans can fall apart, even for the No. 1 player on top of his game, especially at Augusta National.

Think back to Woods at his absolute best. He won 10 times in 2000, including three majors, and finished no worse than fifth in 19 of his 22 tournaments worldwide. Going into the Masters, he either won or finished second in 10 of his previous 11 PGA Tour events. It felt as though everyone was playing for second at Augusta that year. What happened? Woods made a double bogey and a triple bogey in a span of three holes, shot 75 in the opening round and never caught up. The hype over Woods is not that strong this year, though there is no doubt who is driving the conversation. Those who have played with him on the course or hit balls next to him on the range talked about how he never missed a shot. His putting has been pure since he got that tip from Steve Stricker last month at Doral. And it shows in the scores. Woods has won his last two tournaments, at

Doral and Bay Hill, and neither was terribly close. When the Masters begins Thursday, he is the odds-on favourite to end his five-year drought in the majors, and win a green jacket for the first time since 2005. Trouble is, Augusta National doesn’t play favourites. “Obviously, Tiger is Tiger,” said Scott Piercy, who will play alongside Woods and Luke Donald in the opening two rounds. “He’s always going to be that target. He knows it, and that’s how he wants it. But there’s a lot of people getting closer. And the golfing gods, or whatever you want to call them, have a lot to do with winning. A bounce here, a bounce there. A lip in, a lip out.” Angel Cabrera got one of those bounces off a pine tree and back into the 18th fairway in 2009 that helped him save par and win a playoff on the next hole. Sure, he was a former U.S. Open champion, but the big Argen-

“Yes, Tiger is the favourite. He’s strong. He’s determined. We will see. But he’s going to be chased by a lot of really good players.” Nick Faldo tine was No. 69 in the world that year, the lowest-ranked player to ever win the Masters. The hole got in the way twice for Charl Schwartzel in 2011, once on a chip across the first green that fell for birdie, another a shot from the third fairway that dropped for eagle. He finished with four straight birdies to win. It has been 11 years since the No. 1 player in the world - Woods - won the Masters. There is always the usual assortment of players who seem to contend every year for a green jacket. Phil Mickelson is a three-time Masters champion, his

most recent in 2010 when he arrived at Augusta National without having come close to winning that year. Fred Couples was tied for the 36-hole lead last year at age 52. Rory McIlroy has shown he can play the course, at least on the weekdays. Lee Westwood has been among the top three twice since 2010. But for every Woods there is Zach Johnson. For every Mickelson there is Trevor Immelman. Johnson was just a normal guy from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, who would not seem to fit the profile of a Masters champion. He wasn’t very long, didn’t hit the ball very high and didn’t go for the green in two on any of the par 5s. He won by two shots in 2007. “I thought I was playing good that week,” Johnson said. He might have been the only one who realized it. Johnson put the estimate at “0.5 per cent” of those who could

YOUR CITY WORKING FOR YOU! Thursday, April 11, 2013

have pictured him in a green jacket. Then again, it’s like that just about everywhere he goes. “The favourite is all media-driven, all public-driven,” Johnson said. “There are no surprises out there. There’s probably 70 or 80 guys that you would not be surprised one bit if any of them won.” Three-time Masters champion Nick Faldo didn’t name them all, but his list kept growing when he talked about 20 players who could win the Masters, all from what he referred to as the second tier and described as “pretty darn good.” Justin Rose, Ian Poulter and Luke Donald. Brandt Snedeker and Bill Haas. Louis Oosthuizen and Schwartzel. “Yes, Tiger is the favourite,” Faldo said. “He’s strong. He’s determined. We will see. But he’s going to be chased by a lot of really good players.” Robert Garrigus con-

sidered the last few weeks on the PGA Tour to illustrate how fickle this game can be. Martin Laird had missed the cut in half his tournaments and had yet to crack the top 30 when he closed with a 63 to win the Texas Open. D.A. Points had missed seven cuts in nine tournaments and had not finished in the top 60 when he won the Houston Open. “I saw the odds on Tiger last night and I thought, ‘Man, you just never know what’s going to happen,”’ Garrigus said. “I saw I was like 200-to-1, and thought if I could bet I might throw a couple of hundred dollars on me.” Woods is annoyed that seven Masters have come and gone since he last sat in Butler Cabin with his green jacket, though he looks at his record and isn’t worried. He keeps giving himself chances, and he figures one of these years, everything will fall into place. And he’s still the guy to beat.

La Cafamore presenting Black Angels on EK tour B r ia n L awren ce Creston Valley Advance

Nelson’s La Cafamore string quartet will return to Cranbrook on April 20 to perform two works, one well-known and the other not so. Audiences on the quartet’s Kootenay tour will enjoy Franz Schubert’s Death and the Maiden (String Quartet No. 14 in D Minor), as well as a more recent work, Black Angels, by American composer George Crumb, in which the members will play their usual instruments in unusual ways, and throw in a few new sounds for good measure. A variety of percussive instruments — such as crystal glasses and a tam-tam gong — will be used, and in some parts, will play their instruments, well, backwards, with their fingers near the bridge and the bow where their fingers usually go. “Some of the techniques are very difficult,” said cellist Jeff Faragher. “We’ve all been practicing on our own for about eight months. … “[Crumb] is a master of soundscapes. He tells stories through experimenting with different tones and pushing the edge of what instru-

ments can do.” Chanting of numbers in various languages, including German, Japanese and Hebrew, rounds out Black Angels, which Crumb wrote in 1970 to represent the struggle of good versus evil. “The piece is a journey,” said Fragher. “It embodies a fall from grace and a journey through hell. It’s not directly religious per se, and it’s not based on anything religious.” The work is comprised of three parts. The first, Departure, depicts the fall, the second, Absence, introduces the dark themes of the fallen angel, and the third, Return, brings forth beautiful music as God prevails over evil. Faragher was introduced to the work in college, when a friend played it for him at a library listening station. He was told to turn the volume up for the beginning because it was really quiet — which he discovered wasn’t the case. “The beginning is extremely violent and loud,” Faragher said, adding that his startled reaction got him kicked out of the library. That doesn’t represent the entire score, however. “It’s challenging

enough, but still there are some beautiful melodies, there are some really magical moments that draw the audience in,” he said. “There’s a bit of theatricism, as well, with all the instruments we have.” The Schubert piece, Death and the Maiden, also has a serious tone. Written in 1824, the theme of death is present in all four movements. “Because of the dark nature of the program, we thought it would fit,” Faragher said. “It’s probably one of his most famous. They’ll kind of mirror each other nicely.” La Cafamore’s Kootenay tour begins in Nelson, and also travels to Creston, Cranbrook, Invermere, Rossland and Silverton. “It’s very important to me to bring relatively new music to audiences who don’t get a chance to hear it,” Faragher said. The performance begins at 7:30 p.m., April 20, at Knox Presbyterian Church in Cranbrook. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for students and children, and $45 for families, available at the door. For more information, visit www.

Rosette, at Friendz Pub Saturday, April 13.

Cranbrook set to welcome Rosette Rosette Luve is a Canadian pop, R&B, and house singer, a songwriter, actor and dancer — an international sensation and Canadian music icon. Rosette is coming to Cranbrook on April 13, and will be performing at Friendz Pub Saturday for one night only.

Rosette has a list of number one hits and is probably best known for her most recent chart topper “Amnesia” (featuring Timbaland). The show will also feature singer-songwriter Craig Smart. Tickets are only $15 and they can be purchased at Just Liquid in Cranbrook.

Nelson string quartet La Cafamore will play in six Kootenay venues on this month’s tour.

Vancouver metal warriors will rock the Byng Ferdy Belland

“In my career, I’ve played some of the craziest places you can imagine, everything from a tattoo shop to a sushi bar,” remarks DJ Temple, lead guitarist for Vancouver’s heavy metal hammer-throwers Without Mercy. “The tight-knit metal community allows us to find friends all around who help us get the ball moving and spread the word, be it through social media or just plain word of mouth.” And Without Mercy’s high-volume ball seems to be moving at breakneck speed across British Columbia this tour around, climaxing with their upcoming concert at the Byng Roadhouse (with opening support from Cranbrook’s death-metal newcomers Lost Harbinger) this Friday, April 12. “It’s safe to say that the road has its ups and downs,” Temple says. “The national touring experience has some crazy places...and even crazier people, that’s for sure! The strongest Canadian metal audiences are in places you wouldn’t believe. Places like Prince George and Red Deer have really set the bar for just how insane a crowd can get. Also: this country is BADASS! Why not get out there and see it while

Without Mercy playing the music that you love? Now, if only I could get Tourism Canada to cut me a cheque for saying that!” Based out of Abbotsford, B.C., since 2007, Without Mercy (which also features vocalist Curtis Fournier, bassist Tristan Martin, and drummer Matt Helie) has wasted no time over the past six years by bludgeoning their way into the hearts and minds of the West Coast music scene through locktight musicianship, imaginative songwriting arrangements, and above-average ultra-technical riffer. The band has an EP and a full-length album under their belts, and have shared stages with legendary metal artists like

Satyricon and Death Angel. Without Mercy maintain a punishing regimen of live performances, whenever and wherever they can. “We were going into a writing-mode hibernation and hadn’t played for awhile,” Temple said. “We were asked to co-headline an Abbotsford show with a local band who are really good friends of ours, and things got pretty hectic. Curtis got such a large circle-pit going that the fans ended up destroying the walls of the hall! Or, should I say, the fans smashed through the wall to make more room for the circle-pit. I have to say, that was a new one for us!” 2013 proves to be a busy year for Without

Mercy. Following several festival appearances this summer, their new EP is planned for general release. The band plans on returning to the studio in the fall to lay down their next album. “I figure I can sleep somewhere around 2015,” laughs Temple. And he’s not exactly joking. Nicknamed “the Ginger Tornado” by his bandmates, the affable guitarist is also known for helming the Temple Music Academy in Abbotsford and provides online guitar lessons. A busier metalhead than him is hard to find. Without Mercy are at the Byng (21 Cranbrook St. N.) Friday April 12, with Lost Harbinger. Showtime 8 p.m.

UNICEF ranks Canada 17th in child well-being index C anadian Press

Canada ranks 17th out of 29 so-called wealthy countries when it comes to the well-being of children, according to a new study from UNICEF, the United Nations children’s agency. UNICEF graded the 29 countries in five categories and Canada’s best ranking was 11th in the area of housing and environment. The UN agency placed Canada 14th in educational well-being, 15th in material well-being, 16th in behaviour and risks and a low 27th in health and safety. Canada scored third-best on smoking, with UNICEF saying only four per cent of

children aged 11, 13 and 15 reported smoking at least once a week. The same can’t be said for cannabis, with Canada sitting 29th and last with 28 per cent of children saying they have used cannabis within the past year. When it comes to obesity, Canada is third from the bottom, with 20.24 per cent of children aged 11, 13 and 15 deemed overweight based on the body mass index. Canada ranked 21st in bullying, with 35 per cent of children aged 11, 13 and 15 report being bullied at school at least once in the past couple of months. UNICEF also placed Canada 22nd in in-

fant mortality. David Morley, UNICEF Canada’s president and CEO, says the report shows there’s a lot of work to be done. “The fact that our children rank in the bottom half when compared to other industrialized nations simply isn’t good enough,’’ Morley said. “It is clear Canada can do better. Protecting and promoting the well-being of our children must become a national priority.’’ The Netherlands remains the overall leader in the study and is the only country ranked among the top five in all dimensions of well-being. Four Nordic countries —

Norway, Iceland, Finland and Sweden — round out the top five. The bottom five in the UNICEF index are Greece, followed by the United States, Lithuania, Latvia and last-place Romania. Meanwhile, Canada’s overall ranking drops seven places to 24th when children’s views of their own life satisfaction are measured. Only five Eastern European countries rank lower than Canada in this category. “Listening to children’s voices, even at the youngest ages, and knowing more about how they see and evaluate their own lives is critical to improving children’s well-being,’’ Morley said.

A report on children’s well-being looked at a sweeping range of contributors that covered everything from relative poverty and education levels to diet and exercise.

Watchdog says mental health system for teens is fractured C anadian Press

VANCOUVER — British Columbia’s mental health system for teens is a fractured, confusing and frustrating experience for families trying to help their children, B.C.’s children’s watchdog said in a report released Tuesday. The report by Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond said mental health services for children between the ages of 16 and 19 is a patchwork of ser-

vices that are inconsistent from region to region across the province. Her report found serious shortcomings and poor communication in a mental health system that isn’t doing enough to help children with mental health trouble or their families. “The results of this review paint a disturbing picture which is well characterized by this comment from a physi-

cian participant: ‘The system is broken. I’ve become so angry, frustrated and burnt out. The biggest frustration is the systemic disarray.’’’ Turpel-Lafond’s office surveyed hundreds of youth, parents, caregivers and professionals who work with youth with mental health problems for the review. Information on the experiences of 89 families who tried to use the sys-

tem was also used for the report. “Indeed, this review reveals a fractured youth mental health system in B.C. that is confusing and frustrating for youth and their families to navigate,’’ the report concluded. Long waiting lists, some for more than a year, were highlighted in the report. Turpel-Lafond said as many has half those surveyed said they were told they’d

have to wait. One family had to wait until their daughter became violent before a semblance of help appeared. It’s simply not good enough, the report said. “For adolescents and those entering their adult years, this is a prime window for prevention, intervention and treatment.’’ But the report said without proper treatment, that window could be slammed shut and the consequences can be life-long. The report said

promises of a 2003 report to improve the mental health system for children have gone unfulfilled. “The review can only conclude that there remains a distinct lack of provincial leadership and accountability.’’ Turpel-Lafond suggested the “leadership void’’ be addressed with the creation of a minister of state for youth mental health who would be responsible for building a three-year plan to create a coherent mental health pro-

gram for teens. Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid acknowledged the findings in the report. “What we see from this report is there’s a particularly vulnerable population that has two transitions, an age transition and a between-ministries transition that we are not managing well enough today and we need to address that.’’ As for Turpel-Lafond’s recommendation of the appointment of a minister of state for youth mental health, MacDiarmid said that would be up to the next government. The report also singled out communication lapses as a major concern. Child and youth mental health workers told investigators they were only notified about half the time if their clients went to the emergency room in a crisis situation. Family doctors interviewed said when mental health staff conducted an assessment of one of their patients they see the report only about 50 per cent of the time.

A birth control pill for Trail’s pigeons? Sheri Regnier Trail Daily Times

Forget about a pigeon cull. How about a pigeon pill? The City of Trail is now researching methods of birth control for

the birds. “It seems incredible to me that we are spending this much time on pigeons,” said Coun. Robert Cacchioni. “But I want to mention that council is looking at this

problem. “And in actual fact, we are looking at finding a feed that we can give to these particular birds that will render them sterile. In effect, a birth control pill.”

Cacchioni said that when studying the actual cost and the escalation in the pigeon population, the idea may give the most bang for the buck. “In fact, if we can find

Slide damages historic rail trestle C anadian Press

KELOWNA, B.C. — A rock slide has damaged a trestle along the historic Kettle Valley Railway, closing the popular Myra Canyon Trail south of Kelowna, B.C. Officials with BC Parks are assessing the damage and it’s not known when the popular hiking and biking trail will reopen.

Myra Canyon Trestle Restoration Society director Ken Campbell describes the slide as catastrophic. He says the springtime freezethaw cycle pried several boulders from the rock face above one trestle, and the resulting slide was very destructive. All other trestles and pathways

along the trail are also being inspected for any damage. The century-old Kettle Valley Railway, including more than a dozen soaring rail trestles through the Myra Canyon, has been dramatically upgraded over the last decade since a wildfire destroyed 12 of the historic wooden spans and damaged two steel trestles.

this particular product, it would be a very simple solution,” explained Cacchioni. “No birds would be killed, they could have all the fun they want, and within a few years, we wouldn’t have any more issues.”

David Perehudoff, chief administrative officer, said that there definitely is such a product approved for use within the U.S. “We are determining whether or not we have license to use it within

B.C. and Canada,” he said. “So it would obviously be the solution that is preferred here. Our staff is researching it right now, because it is the most humane alternative.”

Cellphone texts and GPS help Mounties rescue kidnapped woman C anadian Press

PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. — The RCMP says cellphone texts and GPS co-ordinates helped them rescue a woman who said she’d been kidnapped by her boyfriend and was being held in his transport truck in central B.C. Police say the 26-year-old victim began texting a friend

on Monday saying her boyfriend had become violent, had stopped her from going to work for a week and was threatening to harm her. She said the man had her in his truck, they were travelling from Williams Lake to Kitimat, and he’d told her if he saw the police he’d kill her.

The friend called 911 and dispatchers managed to obtain the cell phone’s GPS co-ordinates. Mounties on the lookout for the truck found it in Smithers and arrested a 24-year-old

suspect without incident, while the woman was taken to safety. Police say the man will be facing several charges, including assault, forcible confinement and uttering threats.

Is the obvious answer the right one? How would you feel if you paid for a new roof you didn’t need? That’s exactly what happened to Janie, first time homeowner and a single mother of two. Janie found the house she wanted and put in an offer, subject to a home inspection, confident that the inspection would show any issues she needed to be aware of. The inspection came back stating the shingles on the roof had several years left and also indicated that some

daily townsman / daily daily townsman / dailybulletin bulletin

nails in the attic of the family room addition had rust on them. The inspector verbally told her the nails were very dry, had been for a long time, and was nothing to worry about. The condition was lifted and she happily took possession. Sitting in the family room addition one cold evening, she heard a dripping sound and looked up to see water beading along the ceiling and dripping on to a now wet patch on the

carpet. Her conclusion: new roof and sooner than she could afford. Janie didn’t have a “roofer friend” nor could she find anyone who would recommend one, so she called 2 companies from the phone book. When they arrived, she told them about the dripping, what the inspector said about the life of the roof (completely forgetting to tell them about dry rusty nails) and stated “I need a new roof.” Quotes were given, a com-

A few months later, colder weather sets in and what does she see….water beading on the ceiling! The old shingles were never the problem. The problem was insufficient air flow in the attic of the addition resulting in a build up of condensation, creating water droplets that eventually found their way through the ceiling drywall. What Janie’s house needed wasn’t a new roof, but ventilation. A lot

simpler, and a heck of a lot cheaper! The combination of an older roof and water leaking into the home could easily lead one to the same conclusion as Janie… new roof. However, the rusty nail statement in the inspection report should have been an indicator, but how was Janie to know. She had a home inspection done, what do “old rusty nails” mean to her? She made her diagnosis based on what she thought was the obvious answer to an obvious problem and paid dearly for it.

TORONTO, April 10, 2013 /CNW/ - With a heavy spring thaw underway, Canadians are seeking various ways to protect their homes this season. Approximately 40 per cent of all home insurance claims are the result of water damage, according to data from Aviva Canada Inc., one of the country’s leading providers of home, auto, leisure and business insurance. The data also shows that the average cost of water damage claims rose 117%, from $7,192 in 2002 to over $15,500 in 2012, a year in which the company paid out over $111 million in property water damage claims. Last year’s spring thaw was unusually uneventful, due to the dry winter that preceded it but with a more normal snowfilled winter winding down, Canadians should be more proactive in 2013. “With so many Canadians making a significant investment in their

basements as more of a comfortable living space than a grungy storage room, a greater value in belongings in a high-risk area of the home has led to an increase in number of water damage claims,” said Wayne Ross, Vice President of Property Claims for Aviva Canada. “We strongly encourage homeowners to take matters into their own hands in order to protect their homes.” The top ten steps Canadians should take this spring to safeguard their homes and possessions from water damage are: Inspect your roof: To prevent leaks, get the roof inspected every few years to check the condition of the shingles and replace when necessary. Clear out gutters: Prevent blockages, such as leaves and other debris that could force water into your home. Install a backwater valve: These valves close automatically if the sewer backs up and can (continued next page)

Reconnaissance (PFR), Archaeological Impact Assessments (AIA), Site Alteration Permits (SAP) and Traditional Use Studies (TUS). TMECS staff includes numerous highly educated and experienced personnel with over 65 years combined experience working in archaeology and over 26 years combined experience in regional archaeology. TMECS is proud to have established and maintained a collaborative and on-going working relationship with all of the First Nations groups claiming traditional territory within Tipi Mountain’s currently defined operating area. Major projects offer an opportunity for cultural advisors and community members from the Ktunaxa Nation Council (KNC), Okanagan Nation Alliance (ONA), and various Shuswap Bands, to provide input and participate in TMECS’ fieldwork. It is believed that this type of involvement strengthens the relationship between First Nations and their clients.

division, this part of their team is devoted to conducting quality mapping, information gathering and data management, allowing TMECS to provide GIS mapping services in eco-cultural works; including archaeology, ecosystem inventories, habitat assessments, wildlife/fish habitat enhancement, 3D geographical analysis, ethno-botanical model building and expert ecosystem mapping.

Tipi Mountain Native Plants (TMNP) is a wholesale native plant nursery located just outside Cranbrook, on the St. Mary Reserve. The company proudly propagates, and cultivates local plant species used in many ecological restoration programs through-out the province. TMNP deems that disturbed terrain should be returned to ecologically correct environments with a wide array of native species through ecological reclamation. Native plants are ideal for use in a wide variety of landscapes including mines, residential and commercial landscapes, as well as in all wild

ecosystems. When planted in the correct location, native species are more resilient than their introduced counterparts; as they attract beneficial insects, birds, and fauna, they don’t require chemical inputs, and are more drought resistant.

prevent thousands of dollars in damage. Scope out your sump pump: If your basement has one, examine it and conduct a test run if it doesn’t get used frequently. Divert snow away from your home: Ensure that snow is removed from around your home, its foundation, doors and basement windows. Check your foundation: As ice melts, if you notice water pooling in certain areas, clear the liquid away from your home. Ensure your window wells are debris-free: Clear any accumulated garbage or leaves to allow water to drain properly. Ensure street catch basins are not blocked: These prevent snow from building up on the street level, pro-

tecting water from seeping towards your property. Protect your valuables: If your home is prone to water damage, consider moving valuables away from high-risk areas, such as the basement, or place items on high shelves or risers. Start right: If you are finishing your basement, make sure to seal your exterior walls. Without taking such precautions, homeowners could put their homes and family belongings at great risk. A provincial breakdown of the increase in the average cost of water damage claims from 2002 to 2012 is included below. The data highlights that BC and Ontario have seen the highest percentage in the average cost of a water damage claim over the last ten years.

New Dawn Developments has started to build the Meadowlark Showhome in Cranbrook’s new Elizabeth Lake Ridge Subdivision and the kitchen will not disappoint. Alison Smith, Interior Designer and Cabinet Specialist for New Dawn, describes the kitchen, “We worked with Gipman Millworks on this project. Gipman’s custom wide rail shaker cabinets will be showcased throughout the house.” “To create a crisp, clean look, we went with maple cabinets in the color ‘popcorn’ which

is a classic soft white to keep the space open and bright, said Smith. “One of my favorite features of the kitchen is the 9 foot long island with extended eating bar. The counter space this provides is amazing - never mind the amount of people it can hold.” There will be an abundance of drawers that have the added benefit of soft closures to eliminate slamming. Crown molding on top of the upper cabinets and a light valance below will add interesting detail. “You won’t be short on

Spring Home Section storage with the large double door pantry in the kitchen located next to the patio doors to the rear deck.” Smith says. Smith added, ‘the window over the kitchen is massive at 7 feet long! Doing dishes won’t be such a chore when you are soaking in the tranquil view of the backyard.” With a total of 2332 square feet, four bedrooms and three and a half baths, the Meadowlark Showhome was designed for spacious living. Home prices for the Meadowlark start at $309,000. plus lot and GST.

Brazilian team discovers new porcupine species Jenny Barchfield Associated Press

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil — A new species of tree-dwelling porcupine has been discovered in Brazil’s Northeastern Atlantic Forest, one of the world’s most threatened habitats, researchers said. Antonio Rossano Mendes Pontes said his team found the rodent, which is covered in dark brown spines with reddish tips, in a small and isolated patch of forest in the northeastern state of Pernambuco. With just 2 per cent of the region’s original forest habitat still standing, the newly discovered porcupine must already be considered endangered, Pontes said. Known by the locals as “coandu-mirim,’’ Pontes and his team have given the porcupine the scientific name

“Coendou speratus.’’ “In Latin, ‘speratus’ means hope, because we have to hope for its future,’’ said Pontes, a zoology professor at the Federal University of Pernambuco, in a telephone interview. The team calculates there are about four of the porcupines per square kilometre in the area known as the Usina Trapiche Forest Remnants Archipelago, where the species was discovered. But Pontes said he doubts whether any more of the porcupines remain outside this small pocket of forest. Even if any do still exist outside the area, Pontes said there’s little chance the different groups of porcupines have been cross-breeding, meaning their gene pool is likely already compromised by inbreeding. Because it shares its

habitat with a larger, previously-known species of porcupine that lives in the upper reaches of the forest canopy, Coendou speratus lives on a lower, mid-height level, feeding primarily on seeds. The porcupine’s pointy nose and long, flexible tail help it manoeuvre through the trees but it can’t jump and is forced to climb down, walk across the ground and up another tree if the trees’ branches aren’t contiguous, Pontes said. Active at night, it sleeps inside hollowed-out holes in tree trunks. Medium-to-large sized predators, ranging from wild felines like jaguars to domesticated dogs, are the Coendou speratus’ natural enemies. But human beings pose the most significant threat to the species.

“People are responsible for logging, clear-cutting and setting fire to the forests and sometimes for hunting the porcupines themselves,’’ said Pontes, who has been researching the little-known swath of Atlantic Forest north of Brazil’s Sao Francisco River, which cuts through northeastern states including Pernambuco and Alagoas, since 2000. “We began by researching all the literature that describes the fauna of the region, going all the way back to the first colonizers five centuries ago, and found out that many of the animals they described are extinct,’’ said Pontes. “One of the incredible things with this discovery is that this species of porcupine is not mentioned at all in the literature and remained unknown to science to date.

This 2009 photo released on April 10, 2013 by Universidade Federal de Pernambuco, shows a new species of the porcupine “Coendou speratus,” in Pernambuco, Brazil. “Given the rate of destruction in this area, where 98 per cent of the original Northeastern Atlantic Forest has already been destroyed, imagine how many species could have gone extinct be-

fore we even knew about them,’’ he said. Pontes’ scientific article detailing the discovery of Coendou speratus appeared in the zoology journal Zootaxa last week.

190 million-year-old dinosaur embryos excavated in China Alicia Chang Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — The latest fossilized dinosaur embryos unearthed in China are providing scientists with the best glimpse yet into the development of the ancient creatures. The 190-millionyear-old bones belonged to Lufengosaurus, a long-necked,

plant-eating dinosaur known for its gigantic size, with adults reaching 30 feet (9 metres) long. A detailed look at more than 200 bones from 20 individual animals at various stages of development revealed they grew much more rapidly inside the egg than other dinosaurs and flexed their

muscles in much the same way as birds and humans. While not a complete surprise, “we are thrilled that we could document this for the first time for an extinct animal,’’ said University of Toronto paleontologist Robert Reisz, who led an international team that excavated the remains in southwestern China. The embryos were the same age as a separate set of fossils that Reisz reported about in 2005 and were hailed at the time as the oldest dinosaur embryos ever found. The two types of dinosaurs, which roamed during the early Jurassic age, were close relatives. The latest discovery was published in Thursday’s issue of the journal Nature.

The cache of bones was uncovered three years ago, but it has taken this long to analyze them — not an unusual lag time for dinosaur finds. In the earlier discovery in South Africa, the embryos were curled up inside the eggs and scientists were not allowed to remove the skeletons. The new collection contained bones that were scattered, letting researchers examine them in finer detail. The latest embryos were not in as pristine condition as the previous find, noted University of Maryland paleontologist Thomas Holtz, who was not part of the discovery team. But they have allowed scientists to chart dinosaur growth, which wasn’t possible before, Holtz said.

WINNIPEG — A Winnipeg man has been sentenced to 90 days in jail for attempting to extort $150,000 from two British school teachers he met online. Robert Li pleaded guilty to the rare charge of extortion by libel. He met the two women online in 2011, pretended to become romantically involved with each of them and promised to move to the United Kingdom. The romantic bubble burst when he demanded the women pay him $150,000 or he would post nude videos and images the women had sent

him. The scheme ended when the women, who didn’t know each other, contacted British police, which in turn contacted Winnipeg police. Li had used a false name with the women but when they agreed to pay him, he told them to send a money order using his real name. “What Robert Li did with that trust was deplorable, despicable, and of course, criminal,’’ provincial court Judge Carena Roller said Wednesday. “These women were devastated and humiliated by his actions.’’

Call Nicole at 250-427-5333

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Follow your intuition. A moneymaking idea of yours might have tremendous value. Try it out on several trusted friends who will take turns playing devil’s advocate. You want their feedback, even if it is negative. You can make adjustments later. Tonight: Indulge a little. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) A friend who might be artistic or just unreliable might play a significant role in what goes on. Remain confident, and don’t lose sight of your goals. A partner or an associate pushes you hard and could become controlling. Is this jealousy? Tonight: You make the call. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Understand that something is going on behind the scenes. You might fear the worst, but try to remain optimistic. You easily can balance a situation. A partner might be uptight about money. A change in how you handle funds could relax this person. Tonight: Get some R and R.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) You might be questioning what is happening within your immediate circle. Friends surround you, and they seem to support you. A creative venture or a matter involving a loved one could go south. Know that this, too, will change. Tonight: Where the fun is. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Others observe you a little too closely for your comfort. You might wonder if you could do something offbeat without being noticed. Let go of a controlling situation. The only way to win is to not play. A family member’s negativity could irritate you. Tonight: A force to be dealt with. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Keep reaching out to someone at a distance -- you need to speak to this person. Avoid all assumptions until you do. Someone could seem aloof, but this behavior is not intentional; he or she is preoccupied with something else. Tonight: Wherever there is good music. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

For Better or Worse

You discover the power of two. You often push very hard to achieve certain results. If you teamed up with someone, the process would be easier and just as successful, if not more successful. Use care with spending, and count your change. Tonight: Talk and visit with friends. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You might want to try something different. You also might not be sure which way to go with a loved one. Please note your detachment. People certainly will not react the same way they would if you were your usual smiling self. Tonight: Go with a friend’s suggestion. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Stay level-headed and focused. You could be amazed at what you can accomplish while others dillydally around. Be more expressive and open with a co-worker or close friend. You will see a different side emerge in this person as a result. Tonight: Squeeze in some exercise. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Your creativity emerges, and it attracts many people. Your

interest in a situation allows greater give-and-take. If a friend cops an attitude, ignore his or her unpleasant mood. Share a great idea with a friend, get some feedback and then go for it. Tonight: Play the night away. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) If you could work from home, would you? You just might get an opportunity to try this out. If you are OK having no one but yourself around, it just might work. A boss or an older friend seems off-kilter. Reach out to this person to find out what’s going on. Tonight: Order in. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Make and return calls in the morning. A message initially could disappoint you, but in the long run, it will give you the space to do what you want. A family member lets you know how much he or she adores you. Enjoy the moment. Tonight: Out and about at a favorite haunt.

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I work for a small family-owned company, and there are fewer than 10 employees. There is no office cleaning service. For years, one of the employees has been compensated for cleaning the building after hours. This person was recently promoted, but continues to be in charge of the cleaning. That’s the problem. For months now, the office has looked like a fraternity house. The trash is overflowing, dust is piling up, and dishes are left in the sink for a week or more. The rumor mill has it that the promotion didn’t come with a large enough raise, so this person is now doing the bare minimum of cleaning out of spite. The other employees refuse to lift a finger because they feel the person being paid to do the cleaning is solely responsible. I understand both sides, but at the end of the day, nothing is being done. I get mad at myself and at the person responsible every time I give in and clean up, but otherwise, the office is unpleasant and looks unprofessional. We have clients in daily, and some have commented on the condition of the office. This has caused me undue stress, but it doesn’t seem to bother the other employees, especially not the one who is supposedly cleaning. We don’t have a human resources department, and I definitely can’t go to the person who is supposed to clean, because he is now my supervisor. Help! -- Dirty Mess in South Carolina Dear Dirty Mess: Surely your supervisor has a boss. That is the person you need to speak to. You don’t have to speculate on the reasons why the cleaning is not being done. Simply say the office is getting messy, clients have noticed, and you think the company might need additional help to clean up after hours. If they do nothing, your decision then is whether to let it pile up, continue picking up after everyone else or find another job. Dear Annie: I believe it is cruel and unusual punishment for department stores, groceries, etc. to force their employees to stand up at all times. These employees are often elderly and need to work due to their financial situation. What is wrong with placing a hip-high stool at each cash register where employees can at least park their rear ends while not busy? I believe employees would be more productive and lose less work due to backaches and sore feet. If managers were forced to stand on their feet for eight hours a day, I believe stools would be brought in by the thousands. -Germantown, Tenn. Dear Germantown: We agree that standing on one’s feet all day can be debilitating, even with occasional breaks. We hope managers are reading this and paying attention. Thanks for your concern. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Father Who Can’t See His Child,” whose daughter, “Linda,” hasn’t spoken to him in 20 years, and he doesn’t know why. She has to reconnect with her dad before it is too late. My husband died two weeks ago after a horrible battle with cancer. He tried for years to reconnect with his children in Canada. As their stepmom, I tried to let them know of his desperate need to be forgiven for “whatever” it was that caused them to stay away. They all knew he was dying. He cried through one short phone call from his daughter. He begged her to come see him, but it never happened. He came away from that phone call even more disappointed and depressed. Our son and I watched him struggle in agony for the last two weeks of his life. He would not let go. He was waiting for those children to come and say goodbye. I beg that daughter, for her sake as well as his, to reconnect before it is too late. She won’t regret it. -- Grieving in Fort Myers Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

College of the Rockies

Why Choose College of the Rockies? A few of the many reasons you should consider College of the Rockies:


VIENNA, Austria — Instead of a five-minute trip home, a wrong turn led to an all-night drive for a pair of Germans that ended when police stopped their car in faraway Austria for heading the wrong way on a six-lane bridge. A police statement says the couple ended up more than 250 kilometres away from their Bavarian hometown. They were stopped early Tuesday after their car grazed three other vehicles while on the wrong side of a busy bridge in Linz, Austria’s third-largest city. The two told police they apparently took a wrong turn after attending a funeral Monday evening and couldn’t find their way back. Wednesday’s statement says the driver’s son picked up the unnamed Germans — his 77-year old father and his aunt, 70 — and drove them home.

„ Our small class sizes provide more individualized instruction and better access to our amazing instructors. „ Our many transfer agreements allow you to start your educational journey close to home and easily transfer to university to complete your credential. „ Staying local and enjoying lower tuition and lots of scholarship, bursary and award options helps you to save money!

   Nina Erickson was in her first practicum in College of the Rockies’ Education Assistant Program when she realized she wanted to continue her education and obtain a Bachelor of Education degree. She found the small class sizes allowed for more hands-on learning opportunities than she may have experienced at a larger institution. Four months after graduating Nina obtained a full-time teaching position in Ahousat, BC where she is further developing her skills in hopes of eventually returning to the Cranbrook area to teach.
