Missing person located at golf course Kimberley woman found drowned in retention pond B A R RY CO U LT E R
The BC Coroner’s Service has confirmed the identity of a Kimberley woman who was reported missing Sunday, April 14, and found deceased in a golf course retaining pond in Marysville the next day. Kimberley RCMP were notified of a missing person Sunday, April 14, just before 6 p.m. Deborah Marie Blais, 55, had gone for a walk with the family dog earlier in the afternoon at Bootleg Gap Golf Course. Later, people on the course discovered the dog struggling in the retaining pond, rescued it and returned it to its home. When Blais did not return, family and friends began searching for her.
Kimberley Search and Rescue members prepare a raft during a search at Bootleg Gap Golf Course, Sunday, April 14. The RCMP and Search and Rescue were called in, and they, along with a police dog, initiated a search of the area.
According to RCMP, it became evident that Blais may have fallen into the retention pond. The RCMP Dive Team was requested.
The next day, Monday, April 15, the dive team located the women, deceased, in the pond. The Coroner’s Service said the pond is
about three metres deep, and held a week’s worth of water for 27 holes. Search and Rescue teams from Cranbrook,

Drive-by shooting accused receives six years jail Dustin Plourde pleaded guilty on April 15 and was sentenced for firing a shotgun at a home in Kimberley
SALLY MACDONALD Townsman Staff
The man charged over a drive-by shooting in Kimberley on April 4 has been sentenced to six years prison. Dustin Fagen Plourde, 28, pleaded guilty in Cranbrook Provincial Court on Monday, April 15 to unlawfully discharging a firearm, possession of a firearm contrary
to an order, and possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm with ammunition. Crown counsel Lynal Doerksen told Judge Grant Sheard that around 11 p.m. on April 4, RCMP were called to a home on Archibald Street in Kimberley after the residents heard a shot fired at the front door. There were two women and a nine-month-old baby
inside the home but they were unharmed. Police saw bullet holes through the window in the front door. Witnesses reported seeing the shots fired from a dark blue Neon, but RCMP could not locate the vehicle. Two hours later, at 1 a.m. on April 5, the residents of the home called to say the shooter had returned, this
time firing at the kitchen window. The shots had penetrated one pane of the double-paned window, but not the second. The residents of the home told the police they were unclear why their home was targeted. Soon after the second shot was fired, police located a vehicle matching the
description outside a home on Wallinger Avenue, and arrested two people who were leaving the vehicle. They found a sawn-off shotgun inside the vehicle. Five charges were laid against Plourde, while Randy Boehner, 26, was charged with breach of probation. He pleaded guilty on Monday, April 8 and was sentenced to 70 days in jail.
The pair told police that Plourde shot at the residence because he mistakenly believed it was home to members of a drug gang. Plourde’s defense counsel Rick Strahl told the court that Plourde had moved to Kimberley from Strathmore, Alberta, three months ago.

You have to be hardy in Canada in April. A gathering of regional high school students opened the soccer season this weekend at Mount Baker Field. But while Friday was pleasant, Saturday brought snowy conditions to test the teams, such as Kimberley’s Selkirk Secondary and Fernie Secondary School (above). Mount Baker Secondary, Creston and Invermere were also represented. But further soccer action should be played in more springlike conditions, as the weather appears to be turning for the better.
Weather looking up come this weekend
A r n e P e t rys h e n Townsman staff
As anyone who has been outside in the last two weeks knows, the weather has been unseasonably cold lately. Warmer weather is on the way; likely things will be looking up by the weekend. Doug Lundquist, warning preparedness meteorologist for Environment Canada, said the whole pattern is quickly moving for another change, and expects that by the weekend the region should be seeing daytime high temperatures getting closer to a normal seasonal high of around 15 degrees. The weather took a downturn soon after
the unseasonably warm Easter weekend. A high pressure front descended upon B.C. from Alaska and drove the temperature down into the cold snap we’ve been seeing. Lundquist estimates that by this weekend, temperatures could reach a high of 15 on Saturday and 14 on Sunday. “It’s the nature of weather; we have ups and downs over time,” he explained. “What happened is right after that really strong high pressure on Easter, we had a flow come more out of Alaska, so it changed from this warm ridge of high pressure bringing in warm air from the

southwest, to flow coming off Alaska, bringing freezing air from Alaska over the Pacific and then down over B.C.” The last 30 days have been 0.7 degrees below average and the last 90 days have been 0.2 degrees above aver-
age. “What’s happening is not outside of what could happen for this time of year (for the Kootenay region),” Lundquist said. “I wouldn’t want to talk about the prairies, because I think they’ve had it a long time, but for us here in B.C. it’s been up and down.” He said though the weather will be looking up by the end of the week, residents should be wary. “It’s definitely not tire-off time if you’re planning on travelling, especially if you’re travelling through the passes,” Lundquist said, adding that even a trip to Kimberley could warrant keeping the
winters on. “On the valley bottom it melts fairly quickly. You wouldn’t have to go too high and it could be an issue.” He said the pattern is definitely closer to the end. “It’s not entirely impossible that we may see some record lows,” he said. On the long-range forecast, Lundquist said there is a high probability that the temperature will once again be above average – in the high teens. “But to look beyond a week in this kind of weather pattern, the reliability of the forecast goes down,” he said.

Gearing up for Election 2013 This is the third installment in the Townsman’s weekly series from the two declared Kootenay East candidates for the upcoming provincial election — Bill Bennett of the B.C. Liberals and Norma Blissett of the B.C. NDP. The question of the week is: What will your government do to support and enhance services to small businesses in B.C.? Small businesses employ over 1 million people, grow our economy and help communities by paying municipal taxes and donating to groups like United Way. As a kid, I worked in my parents’ small business. Then Beth and I owned a fly-in fishing and hunting business where we started with nothing and worked hard to build our business. I know from experience, government policies can either generate confidence or uncertainty. High taxes create uncertainty and discourage business from investing and creating new jobs. Today, our personal income taxes are Canada’s lowest and business taxes are second lowest. We’ll keep it that way. Businesses invest, pay taxes and create jobs when they are making a profit. NDP
Bill Bennett taxes were the highest in Canada when they were in government and yet, they are promising to raise income taxes again. They are also bringing back the unfair corporate capital tax, which is a tax on what a business owns, not on income. Credit Union members should be concerned. Government can either generate confidence or un-
certainty with its policies, including regulations. An unnecessary or unreasonable regulation hurts business and the jobs it creates. We eliminated 40 per cent of the regulations we inherited from the NDP and were the first province to pass a law requiring annual reports on regulations. We’ll continue to recognize the importance of common sense regulations. We’ll also keep growing markets for business. Asian exports to BC businesses have grown 106 per cent. And we’ll also continue investing in skills training. We’ve already invested $35 million into the College of the Rockies and I’m working on an expanded Elk Valley college campus to exploit the job opportunities in forest, tourism and mining businesses.
To paraphrase a recent statement by Adrian Dix: As your government the NDP will offer stability and clarity. We want to remove uncertainty. Uncertainty is what the Liberals have provided over the past four years. The HST created economic uncertainty from its inception in 2009 to its final demise in 2013. This regressive tax increased the cost of many goods and services and inhibited retail sales in the East Kootenay to the benefit of Alberta and Montana. There has been a lot of confusion and uncertainty about the switch back to the PST with many consumers delaying purchases as a result. The HST was also tough on the food services industry. The Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association estimates
norma blissett that the tax costs B.C. restaurants $1.5 billion in lost sales. B.C. small business paid the price for the Liberal HST. With an NDP government there will be no change in the small business tax rate or the small business earnings threshold. We know that we need to modernize liquor policies.
Improvements will be designed in consultation with stakeholders and will assist those involved in various aspects of liquor sales and services. An NDP government will endeavour to put resources in place to ensure government permit applications are processed in a timely manner. Backlogs of outstanding permit applications are not just frustrating, but actually cost jobs and negatively impact communities. Adrian Dix and the NDP are focused on making changes that will make life better for British Columbians. We will do this gradually over a period of time so that we can provide the stability and clarity that is required for business to thrive. Change for the better – one practical step at a time.

Hospice prepares for Awareness Week Arne Petryshen
The Cranbrook-Kimberley Hospice Society is preparing for its third annual Evening to Remember, which coincides with the National Hospice Palliative Care Week, from May 5 – 11. The Evening to Remember event is a fundraiser and memory walk at Idlewild Park on May 5. Yesterday, members of the society met with Mayor Wayne Stetski in Cranbrook as the city put it’s support behind the event. “The mayor and council very kindly declared the first week in May ‘Hospice Palliative Care
Week’ in Cranbrook,”’ said Don Davidson, president of the Cranbrook and Kimberley Hospice Society. This is the second year in a row the city has recognized the week, and the third year for the fundraising and ceremony event. Davidson said the proclamation by the city allows for word to get out about the hospice society and the event. “This is to let people know that it is Hospital Palliative Care Week and to let people know that we are trying to raise some money and get some support,” he said,
adding that they also hope it will raise the profile of the society as well. The hospice society has been around Cranbrook in one form or other since the 80s, but was on hiatus for a few years, until 2007. The society provides comfort to individuals living with terminal illness, as well as ongoing support for loved ones and survivors. The services are provided free of charge by trained volunteers. The society is always looking for volunteers as well. For more information on the event go to www.ckhospice.com.
Since then, Plourde felt he had been threatened by people in Kimberley involved in the drug trade who felt he was a threat to their business. After drinking a large amount of vodka on April 4, Plourde decided to take action “in a crazy, nothought manner”, Strahl described. Both Crown and defense agreed that a six-year sentence was appropriate. Plourde addressed Judge Sheard before the judge considered sentencing. “I know I made a mistake. I’m not trying to minimize the seriousness of what I did. I’m thankful nobody was hurt, in particular the kids. Whatever reason I had doesn’t make it right and I realize I have to pay for what I did. I carry a lot of weight at this point. I’ve had time to sit and think about what I did,” said Plourde. Plourde has a criminal record in
POLL WEEK of the
Alberta. He was last convicted of robbery and aggravated assault in 2007. Judge Sheard considered for about half an hour before sentencing Plourde to a global sentence of six years. He was given six years for unlawfully discharging, one year for possession of a firearm contrary to order, and three years for possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm, with the sentences to be served at the same time. The judge also placed a lifetime ban on Plourde of possessing a firearm, crossbow or ammunition, and ordered Plourde to provide a DNA sample. Judge Sheard also recommended Plourde serve his sentence at a facility other than Kent Institution, as Plourde believed he would be threatened there. Because Plourde pleaded guilty, the Crown ordered a stay of proceedings on a second charge of unlawfully discharging a firearm, and a charge of breach of probation.

Trial approaches for rollover death Young Jaffray man faces trial in June over 2010 fatal rollover crash S ally MacD onal d Townsman Staff
A young man charged in relation to a June 2010 accident that killed a 23-year-old Jaffray man will have a trial in Cranbrook starting June 10, 2013. Jaffray resident Kyle Neidig faces charges of criminal negligence causing death, impaired driving causing death,
and causing an accident resulting in death. In Cranbrook Provincial Court on Monday, April 15, Crown prosecutor Lianna Swanson and Neidig’s defense counsel Neil Robertson confirmed that an eight-day trial by judge can precede starting on June 10. A pre-trial conference is scheduled for May 6.
The charges against Neidig are relating to the June 11, 2010 accident that occurred four kilometres east of Cranbrook city limits on Highway 3/95. The accident claimed the life of 23-year-old passenger Ian Charles Alan Shepherd, also of Jaffray. After a lengthy investigation, charges were filed against Neidig in
April of 2011. The investigation by RCMP East Kootenay Traffic Services revealed that during the violent rollover crash Shepherd was not wearing his seatbelt, while Neidig was not injured as he was wearing his seatbelt. Shepherd was ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene.

Don’t count B.C. Conservatives out
s the B.C. NDP launched its election campaign last week with a package of income tax hikes, higher than those in the B.C. Liberals’ election budget of February, a third party leader confirmed his own plan to increase personal and business income tax rates. It’s not readily apparent from his recently released “fiscal framework” document, but B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins told me his plan to phase out B.C.’s carbon tax does indeed include raising income tax rates that were lowered to make the carbon tax “revenue neutral.” I reached Cummins in Prince George, where he was continuing his aggressive courtship of northern B.C. with an announcement that federal gas tax revenues would be redirected to a new fund for locally determined road improvements. Earlier he vowed to study the deplorable state of northern ambulance service. Cummins has more good news for the north: that’s where a regionally phased elimination of the carbon tax would begin. It’s also the area of thinnest population, meaning the impact on the B.C. treasury would be less. This is, after all, a tax budgeted to bring in $1.2 billion in the current year. The B.C. Conservatives continually remind people that the carbon tax falls dis-
proportionately on rural, remote and particularly northern folks who face long distances, long winters, and public transit options ranging from slim to none. This has ceased to be much of an issue for the urban B.C. majority, who are focused on bridge tolls, ferry fares and the like. The B.C. Conservatives decry the population decline of rural B.C., with international immigration almost exclusively going to big cities, while BC VIEWS temporary foreign workers increasingly fill agricultural Tom and industrial jobs in the Fletcher Interior. The party’s still-evolving platform echoes the NDP’s call for more skills training and increased completion rates for trade apprentices. Cummins is in favour of the proposed Northern Gateway oil pipeline and the massive buildup of infrastructure needed to add liquefied natural gas to B.C.’s energy export mix. He sees that enormous industrial expansion as the path to shift population growth beyond the south of the province. Cummins is surprisingly cool to one industrial project, the proposed Site C dam on the Peace River, calling himself undecided. He also sounds skeptical about the B.C. Liberal plan to extend B.C.’s electricity grid and use that to develop further independent power. This sounds to me like political positioning rather than economic analysis.
An anti-Site C independent candidate has significant support in Peace River North, creating a three-way struggle for a key B.C. Conservative target. The B.C. Conservative platform also totals up the billions in long-term electricity contracts with private power producers and suggests the price for this clean energy has been set too high. This is another echo of the NDP’s vague position. So if the B.C. Conservatives are gungho on oil and gas and think the carbon tax is a mistake, do they think there should be any effort to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions? Cummins sidestepped that question, preferring to talk about conventional air pollution, whether it’s in the Fraser Valley or as a byproduct of a northern industrial boom. As a long-time former Reform and Conservative MP, Cummins is acutely aware that the urban media will leap with extra vigour on any perceived gaffe of the right wing. Should a Conservative let slip that he’s skeptical about global warming, or worse, express a rustic view on social issues, all Hell would break loose. The B.C. Conservatives have started with the most detailed, costed platform of any party. Don’t count them out.

Parkinson’s Law expanded What’s Up? “W ork expands to fill the time available for its completion,” wrote Cyril Northcote Parkinson in 1955, and instantly created a whole new domain in the study of human affairs. “Parkinson’s Law” was one of the most profound insights of the past century, but he didn’t go far enough. There is a media corollary that doesn’t get nearly enough attention. It is this: “International confrontations expand to fill the media space available.” There is a lot of media space available nowadays, and a striking shortage of truly terrifying international threats, so the few modest ones that do exist are magnified to fill the scary news quota. That’s why you hear so much about the North Korean nuclear threat, the Iranian nuclear threat, and the international terrorist threat. Unless you live in South Korea, or Israel, or lower Manhattan, none of these “threats” will ever disturb the even tenor of your life — and even if you do live in one of those places, it is still very unlikely. The very unlikely did happen in lower Manhattan once, twelve years ago, but it is very, very unlikely to happen there again. Nevertheless, 9/11 is used to justify an ongoing “war on terror” that has provided long-term employment for several million people and justified well over a trillion dollars in “defence” spending over the past decade. Which brings us to another law, the Shirky Principle: “Institutions will try to preserve the problem to which they are the
solution.” In other words, armed forces, intelligence services and those parts of the foreign policy establishment that have prospered from “fighting terror” will instinctively preserve that threat. They hunt down and kill individual terrorists, of course, but they also keep coming up with new terrorist threats. Moreover, fighting terrorists does not justify aircraft carriers, armoured divisions, and planes like the F-35. Those branches Gwynne of the armed forces need the threat of wars in which Dyer weapons like those might be at least marginally relevant. Credible threats of high-intensity warfare are scarce these days, so you have to be creative. There is, for example, a remote possibility that the inexperienced young man who now leads North Korea might be paranoid enough, and the generals who supervise him stupid enough, to attack South Korean forces somewhere. That might lead to a major war in the peninsula. The probability that this would lead to the use of nuclear weapons in the Korean peninsula is vanishingly small. The likelihood that it could lead to the use of nuclear weapons elsewhere is zero. Yet this confrontation is getting as much coverage in the Western mass media as the Berlin crisis did in 1961 — and the Asian media generally follow suit. The same is true for the alleged Iranian nuclear threat. Iran is probably not planning to build nuclear weapons, and there is no chance that it would launch a nuclear
attack on Israel even if it did build a few. Israel has hundreds of the things, and its response would destroy Iran. Yet the Israelis insist that it might happen anyway because Iranians are crazy — and both Western and Arab media swallow this nonsense. Fifty years ago, during the Berlin crisis, a single misstep could have led to ten thousand nuclear weapons falling on the world’s cities. Bad things can still happen when politicians miscalculate, but the scale of the potential damage is minuscule by comparison. Yet our credulous media give these mini-crises the same coverage that they gave to the apocalyptic crises of the Cold War. Hence Dyer’s Corollary to Parkinson’s Law: International confrontations expand to fill the media space available. Little ones will be inflated to fill the hole left by the disappearance of big ones. The 24-hour news cycle will be fed, and military budgets will stay big. You just have to keep the general public permanently frightened. That’s easy to do, because people in most countries know very little about the world beyond their immediate neighbours. They’ll believe almost anything the media tell them — and most of the media go along with the official sources because scare stories sell a lot better than headlines about the remarkably peaceful state of the world. Humbert Wolfe’s judgement almost a century ago still applies everywhere: “You cannot hope to bribe or twist (thank God!) the British journalist But given what the man will do unbribed, there’s no occasion to.”
The real test for Trudeau begins now
M i c h a e l D e n Ta n dt
n little more than a year, the 41-yearold eldest son of Pierre Trudeau has moved from the fringes of the Liberal party to its head, from neophyte to Great Hope in one extended leap. His pride of place is undisputed. He won overwhelmingly, on the first ballot, with 80 per cent of the vote. Justin Trudeau now has an unprecedented opportunity to remake a major federal party in his image. The wind at his back is considerable. So are the potential pitfalls in his path. Until recently, Trudeau was often dismissed as a pushover, with little more than good looks and a famous pedigree to his credit. Over the past six months, as polls showed his popularity surging, the punditocracy has moved incrementally from open disdain, to bet-hedging, to heralding a Liberal revival. The latter will not last – unless Trudeau proves to be as effective a leader as he is a campaigner. Unlike Jean Chretien in 1990 and Paul Martin in 2003, or for that matter Stephane Dion and Michael Ignatieff in 2006 and 2009, respectively, Trudeau owes few debts within the party. His donor base is broad and loyal to him personally. There is no close rival who must be appeased. Retired astronaut Marc Garneau might have been that person, but he dropped out. Martha Hall Findlay and Joyce Murray each have loyal but small followings. For Trudeau, all of that is to the good. Now for the deadfall traps. Because of his youth and relative inexperience — he won two hard-fought local elections in his Montreal riding of Papin-
eau, but beyond that the political resume is a blank canvas — Trudeau will be deluged with advice from the party’s veterans, many of whom still consider him a whippersnapper in short pants. Trudeau’s popularity itself can become his worst enemy. Unlike, say, the Conservative and New Democratic parties, the Liberals have historically been porous and undisciplined in their communications, particularly when dissing the leader from the shadows. Trudeau will need to engage his veterans, showing them the respect they will consider their due, without allowing himself to be ruled by them. Should that delicate process go awry, the anonymous backbiting will begin. Second: Though Trudeau has not presented a detailed platform, he has made promises about how he will form policy. He has committed to drawing in all Canadians – not just Liberals – in generating a platform for 2015. Such openness is vital, if the party is to come back from the near-dead: Recent Liberal history is strewn with well-meaning planks — from Dion’s Green Shift to Ken Dryden’s national daycare plan to Martin’s Kelowna Accord – that failed to connect. Trudeau cannot, if he is true to his word, simply recycle these ideas. But a devoted core of Grit partisans, including key members of the caucus, still believe in them and will expect him to do just that. Solving that problem will require skill. The spotlight will be like nothing he’s ever experienced, even in a lifetime spent in the glare. Perhaps most important, Trudeau’s
popularity itself can become his worst enemy. There is a risk of him peaking too early, with an election two years away, and of his success itself becoming an excuse for avoiding the intellectual overhaul the party desperately needs. If that were to happen, the “movement” he has launched will be primed for a hard fall. For as long as Justin Trudeau personally is the alpha and the omega of the new Liberalism – which he is for the time being, without question – the entire edifice is little more than a cult of personality, vulnerable to any missteps or mistakes he may make. And he will certainly make some. Only solid pillars of popular, needs-based policy can provide him with a lasting base. In the House, he will need to be steady, sensible and workmanlike – a far cry from his demeanor little more than a year ago, in the famous “piece of s—” incident. The spotlight will be like nothing he’s ever experienced, even in a lifetime spent in the glare. The Conservatives and the NDP both can be expected to turn every twitch and fumble to their advantage. So, a triumph? For Trudeau it is, absolutely. But the ebullience may be shortlived. For he’s just now, finally, stepping into the ring. In the years ahead there will be moments when he wonders, as he did in round one of the famous punch-up with Senator Patrick Brazeau, whether he’s made a terrible mistake. How he recovers from those moments will tell the tale. Michael Den Tandt is a columnist with Postmedia News

Bruins game against Senators postponed in aftermath of Boston bombings

BOSTON - The NHL says Monday night’s game between the Ottawa Senators and Boston Bruins at TD Garden has been postponed in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings. No makeup date has been scheduled. The league says it “wishes to express its sympathy to all affected by the tragic events that took place in Boston earlier this afternoon.” Two bombs exploded near the finish line of the marathon on Monday, killing two people, injuring 23 others, and sending authorities rushing to aid wounded spectators. A senior U.S. intelligence official said two other explosive devices were found nearby. Associated Press
Jackie Robinson’s ballboy in 1947 to throw out 1st pitch MIAMI - The ceremonial first pitch at Monday’s Marlins-Nationals game will be thrown out by Norman Berman, who was the ballboy for the Brooklyn Dodgers the year Jackie Robinson broke baseball’s colour barrier. The 84-year-old Berman lives in nearby West Palm Beach. He has been a Marlins fan since their first game in 1993, and he was the Dodgers’ 19-yearold ballboy in 1947. Berman saw up close the challenges Robinson overcame as depicted in the new movie “42,” with opponents relentlessly taunting and heckling the Dodgers rookie. Berman’s only season as ballboy was in 1947, and he watched Robinson and the Dodgers reach the World Series. Berman said Robinson befriended him, played catch with him and gave tips on how to make a double-play pivot. Associated Press
Kesler scores twice to lead Canucks 5-2 over Predators NASHVILLE - Ryan Kesler scored two goals and Roberto Luongo made 36 saves to lead the Vancouver Canucks to a 5-2 win over the Nashville Predators on Monday. Derek Roy, Jason Garrison, and Alex Burrows also scored for Vancouver, which has won five of its past six. Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin, and Jannik Hansen each had a pair of assists. Nick Spaling and Bobby Butler scored for the Predators, who have lost a franchise-high seven consecutive games. They have won just once in their past 11 games. Monday’s loss eliminated the Predators from post-season contention. Nashville had qualified for the playoffs in seven of the past eight seasons. Associated Press
Peyton Manning kicks off 2013 quest for Super Bowl ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - Peyton Manning returned to Broncos headquarters Monday, starting voluntary workouts with his group of receivers, which now includes Wes Welker, formerly the top target for Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. The 37-year-old quarterback was working with his receivers a week ago at Duke, where the quarterback’s former college coach, David Cutcliffe, ran a mini-camp of sorts with Manning, his brother, Eli, and an assortment of Broncos and Giants receivers. After taking two months away from football about a month more than he’d hoped for - Manning said it’s hard to gauge the way his arm feels this time this year compared to last. He conceded he wasn’t sure if he’d ever get back to where he was before the neck surgeries that cost him the 2011 season. Associated Press

Oilers fire GM Steve Tambellini DEAN BENNE T T Canadian Press
EDMONTON - The Edmonton Oilers fired general manager Steve Tambellini Monday, saying the window of opportunity is short with their young guns and that Tambellini wasn’t getting it done. Tambellini, in his fifth season as GM, was replaced by former Oiler coach and vice-president Craig MacTavish. “I’m an impatient guy,” MacTavish told a news conference at Rexall Place, sitting beside Kevin Lowe, the Oilers president of hockey operations. “We’re at the stage in
terms of the cycle of our hockey club right now that we have to do some bold things. We have to expose ourselves to some semblance of risk to try and move the team forward in a rapid fashion,” said MacTavish. “We’ve got primary pieces here but we’ve got to add some depth to help these young players.” MacTavish was the Oilers coach from 2001 to 2008, then left hockey to acquire an MBA at Queen’s University. He returned to the Oilers last summer as the senior vice-president of hockey operations. With Lowe and Mac-
Tavish at the podium was former Oilers assistant GM Scott Howson. Howson was recently fired in February as GM of the Columbus Blue Jackets and now takes over MacTavish’s old role as senior vice-president of hockey operations. Tambellini was not at the news conference. The announcement came after the Oilers were expected to compete for a playoff spot in the lockout-shortened 2013 NHL season, but instead are all but mathematically eliminated from the post-season. Heading into NHL action Monday night, the Oilers were 12th in
the Western Conference standings with a 16-187 record, eight points behind eighth-place Detroit. “I for one really had hoped that we’d be a little more advanced than we are now,” said Lowe. “And because careers are short and opportunities for achievement don’t come along very often, we feel strongly that it is important that we make some changes right now.” Lowe said a decision on Tambellini was in the works for awhile, but said the team’s current five-game losing streak, including a list-
less 4-1 loss Saturday to the Calgary Flames, didn’t help. “Losing five in a row, how we lost, where we are - all those things go into the decision,” said Lowe. “If we’re going to do something, then why wait.” It has been seven miserable years for the Oilers since they pushed the Carolina Hurricanes to a seventh and deciding game in the 2006 Stanley Cup finals. The team hasn’t made the post-season since and three previous seasons have seen the Oilers at or near the bottom of the NHL.
Reyes won’t need surgery on his sprained ankle C ANADIAN PRESS
TORONTO - Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes won’t need surgery on his sprained left ankle but is still expected to miss three months, general manager Alex Anthopoulos said. Reyes visited a specialist in Charlotte, N.C., on Monday who confirmed the diagnosis of a severely sprained ankle. Reyes was injured when he slid awk-
wardly into second base in Friday’s game at Kansas City. Anthopoulos said Reyes will be in a cast for two weeks and then in a walking boot for an additional two weeks, meaning he won’t be ready to begin rehab activity for at least a month. Reyes was placed on the 15day disabled list Saturday. The Blue Jays called up shortstop Munenori Kawasaki from tri-
ple-A Buffalo to replace him on the roster. Reyes was acquired from the Miami Marlins in a 12-player trade last November. The fourtime all-star is batting .395 with one homer and five RBIs this season. Also Monday, Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista was not in the starting lineup for the opener of a four-game series against the visiting Chicago White Sox.
Bautista is fighting a cold and is resting a sore back. Anthopoulos said the veteran right-fielder will likely return to the lineup Tuesday night. The Blue Jays are in the middle of a 20-day stretch without an off day. Bautista missed a few games earlier this month with an ankle injury. He has three homers and six RBIs in nine games this year.

King improves to 3-0 at world senior curling event C anadian Press
The bowling team that will represent B.C. at the national championships includes a Cranbrook resident, Dave Gourley, who is making a foray back into the sport. Left to right: Darren Ried, Mike Elder, Larry Richet, Kim Chadwick (coach), Matt Eisenhauer, Dave Gourley.
Local bowler qualifies for nationals
After a three-year hiatus from the sport, Dave Gourley is off to the Canadian championships Tre vor Cr awley Sports Editor
Though he’s taken a three-year break from the sport of bowling, Dave Gourley is back. The Cranbrook bowler has made an immediate impact, bowling his way into the national 5-pin championships in the team event, after his crew won the event at the provincial level in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. Gourley made it through zones in Vernon, and competed in the singles category at provincials as well, narrowly coming in second place.
“Our men’s team—it was pretty well ranked number one,” said Gourley. “We were favoured to win. I guess, over the years, a lot of the older guys who have bowled, said our team that we had was probably the best team on paper that they’d ever seen come out of the province.” The team will head to St. Johns, Newfoundland, to represent B.C. and compete in nationals at the end of May. “From what I’ve heard at nationals, our team and the Alberta team are favoured to win—they got a pretty
good men’s team out of Alberta,” Gourley added. Not bad for a guy getting back into the sport after stepping away from the lanes a few years ago. Gourley has bowled his entire life and made a name for himself as a national-level competitor, but he decided he needed a break. “I’ve bowled on TSN and CBC, made lots of money with the bowling and stuff like that,” said Gourley. “…I stopped about three and a half years ago; I just got tired of it and wanted to do things with my kids and lost
Sidney Crosby skates before practice, no timetable for return Associated Press
PITTSBURGH Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby skated before the team’s practice Monday. Crosby wore a protective mask while skating with injured teammates James Neal and Paul Martin. Coach Dan Bylsma said there is no timetable for Crosby’s return, but called it a positive step for the NHL’s leading scorer. “I would say a foot in the water,” Bylsma said. “I didn’t go out there and see how hard he did go, but I know he was just out for basically a skate. He got out there for a little bit of exercise and to get on the ice.”
Crosby, whose 56 points are four ahead of Tampa Bay’s Steven Stamkos and Martin St. Louis, has not played since being struck in the face by a puck on March 30. The Penguins have gone 4-2 without him and remain atop the Eastern Conference standings with two weeks left in the regular season. Neal hasn’t played since being diagnosed with a concussion following a hit from New York Rangers defenceman Michael Del Zotto on April 5. Bylsma called Neal “symptom-free” but added that the winger will not be rushed back. “It’s definitely good to see guys on the ice and skating,” Bylsma
said. “I think it bodes well for their situation.” Centre Evgeni Malkin, who missed Saturday’s 3-1 win over Florida with an upper body injury, could play Wednesday against Montreal. The reigning NHL MVP is dealing with a lingering shoulder issue that can make it difficult for him to take a full shot without pain. He could have played against the Panthers if the game was more significant and he thinks he will be ready to play against the Canadiens. “I feel good,” Malkin said. “We have a couple days off and skate today and I have little bit of injury, but we still have time until the next game.”
interest, and then my girlfriend this past year talked me into getting back to the competitive side.” Gourley joins five other bowlers that will face other teams from each province and territory across the country. Five members of the team compete during a match, while the sixth is used as a spare if someone struggles. The lead bowls against his lead coun-
terpart on the other team, second bowls against the second, and so on and so forth down the line. The winner of the individual match ups within the two teams earns a point, while an overall team victory results in three points. From the round robin, like hockey, the first place team faces the last place team, second place plays the second last team.
FREDERICTON Canada’s Cathy King remains unbeaten at the world senior curling championships. King’s rink from St. Albert, Alta., cruised to an 11-3 win over Japan’s Mikiko Tsuchiya on Monday to improve to 3-0 and atop the round-robin pool. “There’s always room for improvement,” said third Carolyn Morris. “Anytime you miss a shot, there’s room for improvement. “But I like our cohesiveness. We’re very much a team that sticks together through missed shots and made shots. We have each other’s backs.” Canada stole four in the fifth end en route to the victory. The world senior event is being held in conjunction with the world mixed doubles championship. Morris is the Canadian team’s most experienced player but this marks the first time that she’s played in the event representing her native country. Morris
played for Scotland four times, winning gold in 2005 and silver in 2003 when her family was living there for business reasons. Curling success runs in Morris’s family. Her son, Sean, is a former world junior champion representing Canada in 1994. Sean’s wife, Cori, won an Olympic silver medal in 2010 playing lead for Cheryl Bernard’s Canadian team. Morris’s daughter, Kim, won the Scottish women’s title in 2006 and played in the world championship event in Grande Prairie, Alta. And Kim Morris’s husband, Tom Brewster, won silver medals at the 2011 and 2012 world men’s competitions. The Canadian team returns to the ice Tuesday to face New Zealand’s Liz Matthews (11). Rob Armitage of Red Deer, Alta., improved to 4-0 in the men’s tournament with a 6-4 win over Australia’s Hugh Millikin (41).

Adjust your thinking, and try to understand where this person is coming from. Avoid a power play at all costs. Tonight: Relax.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) You beam in any situation -even if there is a disruption. The unexpected is likely to affect your work, an older relative or a commitment. Know that nothing is written in stone; changes could occur often. Remain confident. Tonight: Go for what you want. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Sometimes the less said, the better. In the future, you might want to keep more information to yourself. In light of new information, re-evaluate a recent decision you’ve made. Listen to news as a cynic. You could gain a powerful insight as a result. Tonight: Not to be found. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Put your ear to the ground, and listen to the inner workings of a situation. Your perspective will transform as a result. You might be worried about a personal matter, or an unexpected development could shake you up. Tonight: Hang out where there are crowds. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You know what you want, and you know what you expect. Stay
For Better or Worse
level, as many responsibilities seem to drop on you. Understand where you are heading with a personal matter. Know when to say “enough.” A partner or an associate becomes flaky. Tonight: In the limelight. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You need to follow someone’s lead, even if you would prefer not to. You might be quietly or overtly cynical, but make an effort to follow through as this person might want. You will gain understanding and a new insight as a result. Tonight: Refuse to get into a power struggle. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You might want to reconsider a suggestion involving a loved one. A child could cause a problem, depending on how rigid you are right now. If you are single, be careful around someone you meet today -- the unexpected could occur. Tonight: Make time for a special person. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You need to honor a change within your immediate circle. People seem to want different things. Understand what is hap-
pening, and know that nothing is written in stone. Honor a change on the homefront. At least your life isn’t boring! Tonight: Go with a pal’s suggestion. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Focus on getting the job done. You could be distracted by calls, an unexpected development and/or a possible change of plans. A boss or higher-up might notice how distracted you are. Pull back and get focused. Tonight: Visit with a co-worker or a friend. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Allow your creativity to flow. Sometimes you take yourself far too seriously. Lighten up, and understand that you can’t go wrong if follow your intuition. Use care with your finances. You never know what will happen next. Tonight: Add more spice to your life. BORN TODAY Composer Henry Mancini (1924), basketball player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (1947), singer Dusty Springfield (1939) ***

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I grew up in an extremely dysfunctional family. I have an older sibling who has hated the rest of us for the past 45 years. Family gatherings are extremely uncomfortable events. Inappropriate barbs lead to physical fights, young children cry while the adults pretend nothing is amiss, family members spy on one another, there is lots of back-stabbing, and some relatives are ignored while others are fawned over. My mother allows her adult children to treat one another like animals and refuses to get involved in the chaos. I am tired of this and will no longer let my children witness these destructive behaviors. Please let other parents know they should work to make their home a welcoming and loving environment. Is there anything I can do to counteract the hostility at these gatherings? -- Too Old for Hate Dear Too Old: You cannot force your parents and siblings to behave in a civilized manner. The pattern in your family seems fairly well set, and no one else has much interest in changing it. You are smart to realize that your choice is to stay or leave. Calmly explain to your family why you are walking out (or not attending), and make no apologies. We commend you for recognizing this dysfunction and not transmitting it to your children. But please consider letting the children see some of the relatives oneon-one, under your supervision. Kids are extremely tolerant of aberrant behavior in family members and can understand “this is how Grandma is” without emulating her. Dear Annie: “Michael” and I are a young gay couple pondering marriage. Gay marriage is not performed in our state, and we realize it would not be recognized here. It’s the principle of the thing. A courthouse venue seems the most feasible, and I am wondering whom to invite. Michael’s parents and siblings would most certainly be there, but I don’t know what to do about my side. I have no siblings, and my parents are divorced. Mom is fully supportive, but my father doesn’t know I’m gay. I would prefer not telling him in order to avoid a conflict. My father would probably never find out that Michael and I are married if I don’t tell him myself. But if he did learn about it, he’d be upset. Then again, he’d also be upset to learn that I’m getting married. Should I tell him? Also, because my guest list is limited, should I invite best friends? -- A Ring on It Dear Ring: We think you should tell your father, not only because keeping secrets can erode relationships, but also because you should not be hiding who you are. If you are mature enough to marry, it’s time to handle the fallout from your father. As for your guest list, invite those people you want to have as witnesses to your union, provided you can afford to do so. Dear Annie: This is a response to “Feeling the Void in Indiana.” It was pretty brazen of him to claim to speak for all men when he said we feel incomplete without sex. I’ll admit that is true for a lot of men, but certainly not all. I’m a healthy 30-year-old man with all the normal biological urges. I also haven’t been in a romantic relationship in years and am completely sexually inactive -- and I feel fine about it. That’s because I put my energy into other things like working out and enjoying outdoor activities. And I have a few friends who are as OK without sex as I am. Sex is not the be-all and end-all of human existence. As a last note, any man who cheats on his wife or girlfriend is a cad, whatever feeble excuses he comes up with. -- Abstinent and OK with It Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

With so many advertising mediums dividing the attention of potential customers, newspapers remain the most effective source for reaching consumers. Why? Simply put, newspapers reach more people, more often. Highly portable and highly visible, newspaper ads go with people and stay with them. That means your business is more likely to be on their minds when theyâ€™re in the market for related products or services. When it comes to spending your advertising dollars, make the choice thatâ€™s tried and true: newspaper advertising works harder for you.
