“Be more like Deb”
Kimberley mourns the loss of Debbie Blais C AROLYN GR ANT firstname.lastname@example.org
April is Daffodil Month for the Canadian Cancer Society and next Saturday, April 27 has been designated as Daffodil Day, to wind up the Cancer Society’s fundraising drive. Above, Patti King from the Canadian Cancer Society presents a daffodil pin to Mayor Ron McRae to help raise awareness.
Friends and co-workers of Debbie Blais, who tragically drowned in a pond at Bootleg Gap Golf Course on Sunday, are trying to come to terms with the loss of a woman who was known, and loved, throughout Kimberley. Blais, 55, was a familiar, smiling face at the Kimberley Medical Clinc, where she worked for many years. Dr. Ilona Hale worked with Blais for years and admired her greatly. “She was that amazing kind of person,” Hale said. “I’ve been thinking of how she would talk about a bad situation and always find something good. But it’s hard
Debbie Blais to find something good in this.” Hale says maybe one positive thing is that everyone who knew Blais can learn from the way she lived her life. “She left us so much in that example. I was so privileged to be around her for so

Bottle drive For the Bulletin
The grad bottle drive this year will be held on Saturday, April 20 and all community members can expect the grad class to pick up their bottles/cans from 1 to 6 p.m., however with the grad class being as small as it is, it is not guaranteed that every house in Kimberley will be hit. Grads will also be sorting the bottles at the lower parking lot of Selkirk Secondary, if you would like to drop your bottles off. Thanks for your donations and contributions to this year’s grad class.

Trial approaches for rollover death Young Jaffray man faces trial in June over 2010 fatal rollover crash Sally MacDonald 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 acci-
dent 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 re-
vealed 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.
Weather looking up this weekend Spring cold snap should break this weekend, but it’s not time to swap tires yet, Env. Canada says Arne Petryshen Townsman Staff
As anyone who has been outside in the last two weeks knows, the weather has been unseasonably cold lately. But 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. He 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 average. “What’s happening is not outside of what could happen for this time of year (for the Kootenay region),” he 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, he said there is a high probability that the temperature will once again be on an above average high teens. “But to look beyond a week in this kind of weather pattern, the reliability of the forecast goes down,” he said.

Van pool C AROLYN GR ANT firstname.lastname@example.org
The Earth Day events Wildsight is hosting this weekend (Daily Bulletin, April 17, 2013) are all designed to help people make small changes that will reduce their carbon emissions. Along with landfill waste, taken care of by a composting workshop, and home heating savings demonstrated in two show homes, transportation is the biggest cause of carbon emissions in the personal emissions sector. To help people in that area, Wildsight is working with Kootenay Carshare Co-op to start a van pool for Kimberley to Cranbrook commuters. A vanpool is a group of four to six commuters, travelling together every day and sharing the cost of commuting. KCC provides the van and covers all the maintenance and gas costs, so commuters just pay a fixed monthly rate. Interested commuters should get in touch with Lars Sander-Green at email@example.com

obbing, disheartened and depressed, Virginia Steele felt she had made the biggest mistake of her life. After years of teaching elementary school, Steele enrolled in UCLA to obtain a master’s in library science. Right before graduating in 1964, she heard about something called ‘Freedom Summer’—a campaign being launched in Mississippi in order to assist African-Americans register to vote. Part of this campaign would include the establishment of ‘Freedom Libraries,’ a chance for the majority of Mississippi citizens to have meaningful contact with books and reading. Steele wrote to the organizers of Freedom Summer, and expressed her willingness to help out. If they were in need of any professional library assistance, “I am sure I can get some pretty good help from the teachers here at the library school.” She heard from them a few weeks later, but it wasn’t a thank-you note. “We were very glad to find that a professional librarian is joining the Mississippi Summer Project. We would like to ask you to be in charge of one of these Freedom Libraries for the summer.” As she read in disbelief, the letter’s P.S. drove the message home, “bring some 3x5 cards with you.” Having not yet graduated and having never even worked in a library, Steele somehow found herself driving to Mississippi. Her last exam at graduate school was on the history of printing, not on setting up a library. The Freedom Summer organizers had her read four books in preparation: ‘The Souls of Black Folk’ by W.E.B. Dubois; ‘The Mind of the South’ by J.W. Cash; ‘The Other America’ by Michael Harrington; and ‘Killers of the Dream’ by Lillian Smith. She also attended Civil Rights training, which included self-defence against violence. “Image how I felt,” she wrote to
friends back home, “while I was learning how to drop on the ground to protect my face, my ears, and my breasts, I was asked to coordinate all the libraries in the entire project. I wanted to cry.” Steele arrived in Greenville, Mississippi in early June. The site for the library was an apartment located above a beauty salon and shoe repair store. She had no MIKE’S sooner arrived than she BOOKNOTES was startled by a huge bang. The books had arMike rived (20,000 books were Selby donated by civil rights volunteers, teachers, publishers, authors, schools, book stores and libraries from all over North America). The books were supposed to get there ahead of her, but the delivery truck’s tires had been repeatedly slashed. Also, one of the trucks had been seized and the driver arrested on a phoney charge of transporting stolen goods. The drivers were understandably terrified and emptied the boxes onto the street before speeding away. But a human chain soon formed, and people of all ages—including a local drunk who could barely stand—helped get the books into the new library. Besides this act of community benevolence, Steele found it very hard to be there. The heat (38°) was unbearable, and someone had walked off with her wallet. Two other Freedom Libraries had been bombed, and one was burned to the ground. Over in Meridian news was worse. A school teacher named Rita Schwerner had come from New York with her husband Mickey to set up a Freedom Library. But now Rita’s husband was missing (Mickey Schwerner was abducted and murdered along with two other civil rights workers in what became a landmark case). To combat her feelings of distress, Steele made a rubber stamp which read “Freedom Library –Read for Fun – Read to Learn – Read for Freedom.” She then began to catalogue all of the donated books.
Membership cards were more problematic, so she decided to just to write each person’s name down and which book they borrowed. Because the literacy rate in Mississippi at the time was abysmally low, Steele didn’t separate easy-readers from adult books, so as not to cause undue embarrassment. There would also be no fines for overdue books. Not only did she not want to discourage anyone not returning to the library in fear of fines, but a book not returned was felt to be doing more good than it would be sitting on a shelf. A strange fact of history is that Mississippi had already desegregated its public libraries by the time Freedom Libraries began to appear. The problem was this was done so quietly most African-Americans didn’t know this had happened. Then there was the unbelievable psychological courage it would take to test this. Anyone who happened to make it through the front doors of a public library would find a collection not suited to them. These libraries did not contain African-American history, or art, or contributions to science and medicine, or civil rights, or even any fiction written by African-Americans. They also lacked books for adults who had not had the opportunity to develop a high reading level. For Freedom Libraries, these subjects were their entire reason for existing. By the end of that long American summer, over 60 Freedom Libraries appeared all across Mississippi. By the fall, they were all gone. Libraries need to be funded by tax dollars; donations and volunteers will only go so far. Steele was asked once if all her work in Mississippi was worth it. Her answer: “One day I saw two little girls pulling some obsolete books out of a waste can where some sorter had put them. ‘I’m goin’ a make me a library of my own,’ said the one who began the salvage operation.” Steele added to her collection. Mike Selby is Reference Librarian at Cranbrook Public Library.

College celebrates introduction to trades grads Submit ted
On Friday, April 12 participants in an Introduction to Trades program at College of the Rockies celebrated their graduation. Shaylene Osborne, Darren Williams, Jesse Thomas and Ashley Casimer all successfully completed the 11week program. The training, a partnership between College of the Rockies and the British Columbia Aboriginal Mine Training Association (BC AMTA) was part of
BC AMTA’s mandate to recruit, assess and train Aboriginal candidates for careers in the mining sector. Participants were given the opportunity to spend two weeks in each of five trades – Carpentry, Electrical, Heavy Duty/Automotive Mechanics, Welding and Millwright where they were able to benefit from practical knowledge and experience. Students also received training in first aid, forklift operation, fall protection, Work-
place Hazardous Materials Information System and Transportation of Dangerous Goods. College of the Rockies’ Trades Department Head Kim Buchan says, “The program instructors were impressed with this group of students as they were very motivated and hard-working. We hope that the exposure they received to the different trades programs the College offers will aid in their career path decisions.” As indication of the success
of the program, all four graduates are looking to continue their training in various Trades at College of the Rockies. “Helping candidates to move forward in their lives and to achieve success is our goal. We are so proud of these four individuals and all they have achieved,” noted BC AMTA Program Manager and Instructor Suzanne Pederson.

e thrive on sadness. There is so much bad publicity these days, there’s barely any time for the good things that happen in our world. Headlines are roaring with deaths, shootings, bullying, and destruction. Society gobbles up all the bad news they can get; humanity thrives upon other’s sorrow. There’s a German word that sums it up nicely, schadenfreude, which roughly means getting pain from other’s misfortune; and isn’t that truly what we do? I work in retail, and I’ve decided that it’s time we shine some light on good things that happen in our community. A customer of mine was telling me of some hardships he’d undergone recently, and warned me that is was likely he’d have to put a couple things back on the shelf in order to afford everything. It really tugged at my heartstrings to see someone many years older than me, struggling just to live life. I realized at that moment that I’m lucky to have everything I do in my life, and I’m sure the people in line behind this man were thinking exactly the same thing. To my surprise, when my customer realized he had to put some items back, the man behind him in line pulled out some money and handed it to him – without even thinking about reimbursement or benefit to himself.
It really amazed me to know that there are some people in this town — on this earth — that are completely heartless and will do anything to help someone who is struggling. It made my day to witness this act of kindness, and I’m sure it made my customers entire year to be the receiver of such a selfless gift. People like him act from the bottom of their heart, and their kindness will have such a lasting impact on all that they come in contact with. We really need to take time to focus on the good in the world, instead of putting all the bad in the spotlight. Although many will say we are un-sacrificing beings, we all still have the ability to act for the wellness of others. Helping others doesn’t just mean with money, so acts of kindness can still be carried out from the heart, not just the pocket. Whether it’s mowing someone else’s lawn, or helping to carry groceries, every little thing would help. People have no idea the outcome their act of kindness will have on the recipient’s life, or on their own. Since what goes around tends to come around, by doing good for others, good will often come your way as well. The ratio of ‘bad news’ articles to ‘good news’ articles is hugely disproportionate. Although tragic events make for good stories, the papers shouldn’t be filled to the brim with merely just catastrophic deal-
ings. Everyone needs a good dose of philanthropic news, and perhaps if people were more exposed to stories such as those it would result in a more caring, benevolent community as a whole. No harm can possibly come from doing good for others, and if we all start to think about our peers as opposed to just ourselves we could really start to turn the world around. Although we shouldn’t spend all of our time focusing on others and using up all of our resources and energy on other people, we also shouldn’t squander all our time on ourselves. There is a balance that can be found, and if that stability is found I believe it is true that our community would thrive. I just gave one example of a selfless act, but there are many more that we all could do just to contribute in turning someone’s day around; and since helping others doesn’t have to involve money like in my example, there is no excuse for not taking time out of our days to lend a helping hand. We, as a community, can help change our world one step at a time just by helping others. By focusing less on ourselves, and a little more on others, we really can help change some lives. Acts of kindness can brighten lives, and even make ourselves feel better in the process. Jessica Zulps is a student at Mount Baker Secondary School in Cranbrook..

Raptors beat Celtics to finish NBA season LORI E WING Canadian Press
TORONTO, Ontario The Toronto Raptors prefer to think of this as a beginning rather than an ending. To be continued next season. DeMar DeRozan scored 24 points as the Raptors beat the playoff-bound Boston Celtics 114-90 in their season finale Wednesday. The victory capped a roller-coaster season that saw Toronto stagger out to a horrible 4-19 start but win the seventh of its last eight games to finish 34-48. “(The strong finish) gives guys some momentum going in (to the off-season), feel good about themselves, understanding why we’re telling them to work on certain things,” Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. “It means a lot for the organization, for us, to get a good feel for what we can do when guys are tied in, in a good rhythm.” Rudy Gay added 19 points, while Jonas Valanciunas had 18 and Alan Anderson finished with 16. Jordan Crawford scored 16 points to top
Boston (41-40). Paul Pierce had 11 first-half points, and took the second half off to rest up for the playoffs, in which the seventh-place Celtics take on the New York Knicks in the opening round. Kevin Garnett didn’t play (sore left ankle). The Raptors drained 12 three-pointers and led for most of the night, taking a 96-70 lead into the fourth quarter in front of 17,690 Air Canada Centre fans - about 2,000 shy of a sellout. By the time Landry Fields went up for a dunk with two minutes left that put Toronto up by 27, both teams had their reserves on the floor and many fans had already left the building. The Raptors had been mathematically eliminated two weeks earlier, sending them into the off-season without a playoff appearance for the fifth consecutive year. Gay, acquired in the mid-season trade that sent Jose Calderon to Detroit, addressed the crowd before the game thanking fans for their support. “Wait for next year,” Gay told them.

Local football player makes provincial team Jeremy Stewart will suit up with other B.C. players to challenge a team out of Alberta
TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor
A Mount Baker Secondary School football player has made a B.C. squad that will face off against their Albertan counterparts for an inter-provincial game in Kelowna in May. Jeremy Stewart, a Grade 11 athlete, who played as the high school quarterback last season, made the cut at a recent camp in Kelowna, and will join a team made up of 90 players to face a team made up of stars from Alberta. Stewart, a natural wide-receiver who played quarterback with the Wild last year, went down to Kelowna
with three other MBSS teammates in March to give it his best shot at the camp, and ended up earning a spot on the roster. “I was actually pretty nervous,” said Stewart. “I didn’t think it was going to go through, but it did and after that, I got an invite to another All-Star game in Seattle, and another camp in Seattle.” The camp in Seattle is the Football University, an invitation-only event for serious football players that want to push their abilities to a higher level. Kelowna’s tryout had 50 players trying out for the squad, while Van-
couver had another tryout that featured roughly 100 athletes. Stewart has been playing the sport since he was in Grade 8, starting with the Rocky Mountain Rams for two years playing in a few different roles. His family moved to Kelowna where he played wide-receiver with the Kelowna Secondary School Owls, before relocating back to Cranbrook. “Going there was a huge change, just coming from Cranbrook where football isn’t big at all to the Okanagan, where it’s quite a bit bigger,” said Stewart. He joined up with
the Wild football team last year, intending to play as a receiver, but head coach Steve Lightfoot had other ideas. Stewart said he was running a drill as a receiver and threw the ball back to the quarterback, which got Lightfoot’s attention, and he decided to approach Stewart about playing a new role. “He matured a lot last year in that position,” said Lightfoot. “I think it was his first year as a quarterback and there are some growing pains whenever you try something new, but by the end of the season, he was calling the plays in the huddle more than
I was calling from the sidelines.” The Wild football program has grown over the years, but numbers have still been a little shy of what Lightfoot and his coaching counterparts would like to see, which is one of the reasons Stewart ended up in the QB spot. However, Stewart still prefers to play wide-receiver, and his skill at the position is apparent to Lightfoot. “He’s a natural wide-receiver,” Lightfoot said. “He’s tall, he’s fast, he can catch the ball. He’s not scared to hit. He has those characteristics.”
Blue Jays offense struggles in 7-0 loss to White Sox L ARRY MILLSON Canadian Press
TORONTO - Yet another loss by the Toronto Blue Jays has their manager disappointed and at a loss for excuses. The Blue Jays dropped nine of their first 15 games after losing 7-0 Wednesday to the Chicago White Sox, a result that manager John Gibbons found disheartening.
“We haven’t really put it together yet, it’s frustrating,” said Gibbons. “The guys are trying. It’s one of those things, you’ve just go to fight through it. You can’t say it’s early anymore, really.” Catcher Tyler Flowers hit a three-run home run in the second inning and Jose Quintana pitched 6 2-3 innings to earn his first win of the season as the
White Sox (7-8) won their second in a row over the Blue Jays (6-9) after winning the opener of the four-game series Monday. Toronto left-hander J.A. Happ (2-1) allowed six hits, including two home runs, and five runs in 5 2-3 innings to take his first loss in three starts and end a string of four consecutive quality starts by the Blue Jays in
front of a crowd of 15,684 at Rogers Centre. Injuries have been a problem for the Blue Jays who will try for a series split Thursday. They played their third game in a row without right-fielder Jose Bautista, who has a sore back and is listed as day-to-day. Shortstop Jose Reyes is out for about three months with a severely sprained ankle.

Sports Ruff to coach Canada at world hockey championship Donna Spencer Canadian Press
CALGARY - The last man to coach Canada to a medal at the men’s world hockey championship is back behind the bench. Hockey Canada named Lindy Ruff the country’s head coach for the 2013 world championship May 3-19 in Stockholm and Helsinki. Ruff coached Canada to a silver medal at the 2009 world championship. Canada lost 2-1 to Russia in the final in Bern, Switzerland, and hasn’t finished in the top three since then. Ruff was also an associate coach for Mike Babock on Canada’s 2010 gold-medal Olympic team. “I had two great experiences working with Team Canada and really want to make this a third,” Ruff said Wednesday in Calgary. Ruff was available to coach Canada because the Buffalo
Sabres fired him Feb. 20. The 53-year-old from Warburg, Alta., was in his 16th season behind Buffalo’s bench and the NHL’s longest-serving coach when he was sacked. Ruff is Buffalo’s winningest coach with a record of 571-432-162. Unaccustomed to idleness, Russ seemed relieved to have a hockey job again. “It may be a little hard for you guys to understand, but when you’re in it for that many years and you’ve been in the grind for that many years and all of a sudden you’re out, that’s a bad place to be,” Ruff said. “It’s a tough place to be. “There’s days you feel lost. It’s a lonely feeling. There’s been some good in it, not a lot, but I’m excited to get back going again.” Doug Shedden will be one of Ruff’s assistant coaches with the rest of the coaching staff to be named within a
week. The coaches and the Canadian men’s team management group, headed by Tampa Bay Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman, will soon start inviting players to wear the Maple Leaf. Canada opens the tournament in Stockholm on May 4 against Denmark. “Over the course of the next five or six days, we’ll reach out to players who might be available,” Yzerman said. “We wouldn’t contact anybody prior to their team being officially eliminated.” Canada’s world championship team is traditionally comprised of players whose NHL teams didn’t make the playoffs or were eliminated in the first round. Assembling this year’s roster is complicated by the NHL lockout, which pushed the
end of the regular season to April 27 for all teams except the Ottawa Senators and Boston Bruins, who finish on the 28th. If players depart April 30 and arrive in Stockholm May 1, that gives them just two days before their opening game. Ruff pointed out the lockout-shortened season of 48 games has its advantages. “On a short season, players will still want to go and play,” he said. “It hasn’t been an 82-game grind. Most of these players have come off something that’s disappointing and you would hope they’d like to take part in something that could be very rewarding.” Players won’t have time to mull over an invitation to the world championship or relax for long before getting back in the game, so the world championship will be a natural ex-
Oilers start looking toward the future John Korobanik Canadian Press
EDMONTON - With their playoff hopes virtually ended, Edmonton head coach Ralph Krueger said the Oilers must use their final six games to learn valuable lessons for the future. The day after their sixth straight loss, Krueger admitted the team “still didn’t have the foundation” to truly be a playoff team this year and the players now must focus their attention on upcoming seasons. “It’s now having to understand what we do in this final stretch, this is very, very important for us heading into the future,” the first-year head coach said Thursday. “To play teams that are division champions, three of them a is a huge test of our character. It’s going to be very import-
ant to look these division champions in the eye and try to understand in every single game what we’re missing. And try to play these teams even up. “We have the opportunity to really learn lessons that will take us into the summer so we can begin immediately, one day after the season, working on where we can get better, what is this gap (between themselves and division champions) about.” The Oilers were in eighth place and riding a five-game winning streak two weeks ago but have lost their last six to fall to 12th in the western conference, eight points out of a playoff spot. They travel to Denver to play Colorado Friday night before returning home for four of their final five games, four of those against di-
vision leaders Vancouver, Anaheim (twice) and Chicago. Edmonton’s home record is the third worst in the NHL at 8-8-4. Coming after the Oilers appeared on its way to achieving a major goal of making the playoffs, the losing streak has been shocking for the players and the coaching staff. “We were totally on plan at Game 35,” Krueger said. “You get to Game 35 everything worked out, with all the setbacks we had a. so to be where we are today is why it’s difficult to regroup. We reached quite high, from 29th place, to truly believe the possibility of making the playoffs and to have that taken away the reality is extremely painful. And it should be painful and we should feel that.” Krueger said it’s vital
the players and management figure out why they were a playoff team at the 35-game mark and also-rans six games later. “What happened to us, why didn’t we have the energy to sustain that? Why didn’t we play those games in Vancouver and L.A. at a different level and figure out what that gap is, how we can close that gap?” Shawn Horcoff and Ryan Smyth have suffered through the agony of a lot of Edmonton’s non-playoff seasons this will be their seventh straight - and both admit this may be the most disappointing of them all. Horcoff, the team captain in his 11th season with the Oilers, said this year has “probably been the toughest because we were right there six games ago.”
Harper getting to know new Lions team Monte Ste wart Canadian Press
SURREY, B.C. - Justin Harper will not be striking any Superman poses for the B.C. Lions this season. In other words, Harper has no intention of imitating Geroy Simon, the former face of the franchise, who bulges his biceps like the comic book character every time he scores a touchdown. “I look at it as I was acquired for (being) Justin Harper,” he said after working out in a Lions mini-camp Wednesday. “Whatever (Simon)
wanted, wherever he wanted to go, that was out of my control. “I look at it like: I was made to come in here. He was a great guy out here, but it’s my turn now to come out here and show what I can do.” Harper was acquired in the trade that sent Simon, the former face of the B.C. franchise, to the Saskatchewan Roughriders in January after the CFL’s all-time leading receiver declined the pay cut and limited playing time that the Lions proposed. Rather than posing if he scores
a touchdown, Harper will kneel in prayer, thankful for an opportunity with the Lions after he was deemed expendable in Saskatchewan and the NFL. The 28-year-old native of Catawba, N.C., is entering his second CFL season after he had nine catches last year for 95 yards with the Roughriders, but spent most of the season on the practice roster. “It didn’t go the way I wanted it to go,” he said of his debut CFL season. “But, hey, I’m out here where a team definitely wants me.”
tension of their season. “You don’t have three weeks to think about whether you want to go to the worlds,” Ruff said. “You haven’t been off and you’re not going to sit around and say ‘can you give me a week to make this decision?”’ The NHL’s post-season starts April 30. With a 25-man roster to work with, Yzerman says two goalies, seven defencemen and 13 forwards will be invited from NHL teams that didn’t make the playoffs. He expects to keep one or two positions open as insurance against injury, but says he’s unlikely to add players after the first round of the NHL playoffs. “We don’t have the option of waiting until after the first round,” Yzerman explained. “Right now, our intention is to pick the team from players who are all from non-playoff teams.
“Just the way the tournament sets up, it will be difficult after the first round to get players there and have time settle into the team, get used to the time change and be effective.” The world championship prior to a Winter Olympics is both an Olympic tryout for players and a scouting opportunity for team management. Another wrinkle, however, is the NHL has yet to confirm its participation in Sochi, Russia, next February. But Ruff believes players will still be motivated to accept an invitation to raise their Olympic stock. “If you turn it down . . . I think you are putting yourself at a disadvantage,” Ruff said. “If you go and have a great worlds and help a team win a gold medal or win a medal or have a tremendous tournament, it just puts you in a lot better light for what’s coming up in the future.”
Real Madrid overtakes Manchester United as most valuable soccer club: Forbes Associated Press
NEW YORK - Real Madrid passed Manchester United as the most valuable soccer team in Forbes’ annual estimates. Forbes valued Real Madrid at $3.3 billion in rankings released Wednesday, up from last year’s estimate of $1.88 billion. Manchester United, which had been No. 1 since Forbes started the list in 1994, was second at $3.17 billion, a 42 per cent increase. Barcelona was third at $2.6 billion,
followed by Arsenal ($1.33 billion), Bayern Munich ($1.31 billion), AC Milan ($945 million), Chelsea ($901 billion), Juventus ($694 million), Manchester City ($689 million) and Liverpool ($651 million). AC Milan was the only team among the top 10 estimated to decline in value over the past year, dropping 4 per cent. Earlier this month, Forbes estimated the New York Yankees had the highest value in
Major League Baseball at $2.3 billion. In September, it said the Dallas Cowboys were tops in the NFL at $2.1 billion. Among players, Forbes estimated Paris Saint-Germain’s David Beckham as the highest earner at $50.6 million, with $44 million from endorsements. Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo was second at $43.5 million ($21.6 million in endorsements) and Barcelona’s Lionel Messi third at $40.3 million ($20 million in endorsements).

Sacramento’s future uncertain as Kings fans rally for team to stay Antonio Gonz alez Associated Press
SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Is this the end? The chatter around Sleep Train Pavilion centred on that question Wednesday night. With NBA owners debating whether to approve the franchise’s sale and relocation to Seattle, the ever-faithful fans of the Sacramento Kings pushed the uncertainty aside and did what they have done for parts of four decades during the regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Clippers. They rallied. Maybe for the last time. Hope rang out in those trademark cowbells. Optimism showed through purple-painted faces and in the jerseys of players past and present worn throughout the crowd expected to sellout the 17,317seat arena. Stacey Petit-Williams, 32, held a handmade sign that read: “TAKE MY LIFE BUT
NOT MY KINGS.” Her husband, Kenneth Williams, 33, carried another that said: “BEST FANS IN THE NBA SINCE ‘85.” “The Kings are like our stepchild,” said Kenneth Williams, born and raised in Sacramento. “It’s like family. We’re here to cheer something we love.” Fans cheered at full throat during player introductions, often cheering “Sacramento!” while the game was played. Dozens more held up signs at any stoppage with phrases such as “NBA Please Don’t Take Our Team” and “This is NOT goodbye.” The scene was a stark contrast to the home finale two years ago, when the Maloof family that owns the Kings was making plans to move the franchise to Anaheim, Calif. Everybody from fans to arena workers - even the team’s broadcasters shed tears on the court long after the Kings lost
116-108 in overtime to the Los Angeles Lakers. With Sacramento once again standing on the ledge of its NBA future, this season’s finale felt more like a pep rally. “It’s still nervousness, but it’s a lot more confidence this time,” Petit-Williams said. “Our city, our mayor, our fans, we’ve been here before and won.” Former Kings guard Mitch Richmond sat in the first row behind the basket closest to the home team’s bench. Richmond looked up at his No. 2 jersey retired in the rafters just before the game, saying “I don’t even want to think about the possibility of that being taken down.” “It’s time to give this team back to the fans,” Richmond said. Brad Miller, who played for the Kings from 2003 to 2009, sat in the Maloofs’ courtside seats. He also came with his 6-year-old daughter, Aniston.
“Felt I had to be here,” Miller said. Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson, in full cheerleader-in-chief mode, sat down in a courtside seat. He fistbumped “Slamson,” the team’s lion mascot, as players took the court.
“It’s a tough situation for the players and for the fans who spend money to watch the games. It’s just a tough situation.” Jason Thompson Others couldn’t help but feel nostalgic. Gary Gerould has been Sacramento’s radio play-by-play announcer since the Kings moved from Kansas City in 1985. He hopes to continue for several more years, but only if the team stays because his family is in Northern California.
He sat down in the morning and did the math on games he has missed during his career. In his 28 seasons in Sacramento, the 72-year-old Gerould has called 2,198 games - including preseason and playoffs - by his count. Wednesday night might have been his last. “It’s a weird feeling,” Gerould said. “Two years ago, I was absolutely convinced this team was gone. There was not a doubt in my mind. Now there’s at least a ray of hope.” The Maloof family has had a signed agreement since January to a group that wants to buy the Kings, move them to Seattle and rebrand them the SuperSonics who left the Pacific Northwest for Oklahoma City in 2008. Led by Johnson, Sacramento has fought back over to make the sale and relocation of the Kings a real debate. Johnson streamlined

an arena financing plan through the Sacramento City Council and assembled his own group, which submitted a written offer to the league Tuesday night. The NBA’s joint committee assigned to give a recommendation between the two offers convened again Wednesday in New York. The annual meeting of the league’s Board of Governors, consisting of all 30 owners, is Thursday and Friday. NBA Commissioner David Stern said a decision is unlikely until at least May, leading to all the uncertainty in Sacramento’s season finale for everybody involved again. “For the most part, it’s a shame that every year I’ve been here you get the same type of questions and it’s the same situation at the end of the season - is this going to be our last game here?” said Kings forward Jason Thompson, who was among the players who came
back on the court to thank fans two years ago in what felt like goodbye. “It’s a tough situation for the players and for the fans who spend money to watch games. It’s just a tough situation.” The arena parking lot was packed with TV trucks. Radio stations also set up booths along with sponsored business. The Maloofs were nowhere in sight. When Kings coach Keith Smart came out of the locker room before the game and saw a half-dozen TV cameras and another dozen reporters, he joked, “What is this the NBA Finals?” Carmichael Dave parked his purple RV outside the arena. He drove to New York and back over the last three weeks on his “Playing To Win Tour,” stopping at NBA cities to rally for Sacramento’s cause. He encouraged his fellow fans to treat this game as the “season finale, not the finale.”

Showtime 8 p.m.
Ford Pier and the Invasives intersect tonight in Cranbrook Ferdy Belland
Ford Pier is one of the most criminally unsung Canadian musical heroes in sonic operation today. Perhaps he remains in the popular shadows due to his stunning collaborations with other Canadian artists living brighter in the media spotlight: the alternative country of Neko Case, the hardcore punk of DOA, the party-roots of Junior Gone Wild, the earnest folk of Veda Hille, the boozy-bluesy of Carolyn Mark, the dark heady roots-rock of
the Sadies, the progressive art-rock of the Rheostatics’ Martin Tielli — you’ll find Ford Pier playing on most of their albums (and sometimes joining them onstage), either on guitar, keyboards, or anything else that comes handy to his multi-talented mitts. Not to mention the orchestral arrangements he does for Ron Sexsmith and Christine Fellows. And here he is, helming his so-called Vengeance Trio on their first explosive performance in Cranbrook, happen-
Neil Diamond tribute shows coming to Cranbrook Legion Submitted
His voice may not be what it used to be, but Neil Diamond can still sell out concerts and provoke screams from the audience. His charisma was — and still is — legendary. And the Cranbrook Royal Canadian Legion is staging a Neil Diamond Tribute Show on Thursday, May 2. Joey Purpura has lived and breathed Neil Diamond since 2004, travelled across the country and parts of the Caribbean with his tribute show Diamond in the Rough. “I’ve always been able to do voices, as long as I could remember,” said Purpura. “When I found out I could do a pretty good Neil Diamond, my friends encouraged me to go on stage.” In 2002, the Toronto-based impersonator began researching the singer’s life, studying every move, every song and the story behind the
music. He found a Las Vegas-based designer able to replicate Diamond’s glittery costumes of the mid-’70s. “I wanted to research his life because I not only sing his songs, I tell a story and highlight his life just to make it more interesting,” said Purpura. He searched for little known facts about the singer. For instance, Diamond grew up in the same area as Barbara Streisand. They went to the same school and sang in the same choir. Purpura also discovered Diamond was a pre-med student and was six months and 10 credits short of a premed degree when he abandoned his studies to pursue music. “He recorded and released a lot of albums and so he has a huge catalogue of music,” Purpura said about the singer’s international appeal.
ing Thursday, April 18 at the Byng Roadhouse. Pier will be joined onstage with bass wizard Eric Napier and madman drummer Bradford Lambert. The Ford Pier Vengeance Trio is currently
touring in support of their recent 2012 album “Huzzah!”, which, as always, has received much critical praise across Canada and beyond by the hip music media which Pier is continually championed by.
The Invasives have been carving out a musical pedestal for themselves since 2001 to stand proud (but not arrogantly) among their peers in Vancouver’s inter-breeding communities of punks, art-rock-
ers, hipsters, metalheads, and those who just want to hear something loud and good for a change. The Invasives — featuring Byron Slack (lead guitar, vocalist), Adam Slack (bass) and Hans
on drums — will light up the Cranbrook nightlife on Thursday, April 18, at the Byng Roadhouse. They are excitedly intersecting with the Ford Pier Vengeance Trio and local punkers Weekend Glory.

Singer Rita MacNeil dies at age 68 Nick Patch Canadian Press
TORONTO — Rita MacNeil, a singer-songwriter from small-town Canada whose powerful voice explored genres from country, to folk, to gospel, died Tuesday night following complications from surgery. She was 68. Always seeming an unlikely star, MacNeil worked tirelessly over decades to gradually become a beloved fixture in Canadian culture, with her greatest success coming only after she was in her 40s. Her spotless, astonishingly full voice carried a light Celtic lilt that only sweetened her dulcet tones, but she was a versatile singer who could coax grittier notes from her voice as well.
She was painfully shy and admitted to battling self-confidence issues, largely stemming from her weight. Yet she was a renowned live performer who sold out gigs around the world. “I am deeply saddened by the loss of a dear sweet woman and a gifted singer-songwriter who represented women and her beloved Nova Scotia so eloquently in her songs,’’ singer Anne Murray said in a statement. Country music legend Tommy Hunter said his “one vivid memory’’ of MacNeil was when she was a guest on his show. “Coming from a coal mining area she had a soft spot in her heart for those miners. When she sang ‘Working Man’
there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. Rita could convey that kind of warmth and sincerity through her songs to the people in the studio audience and to the viewers at home. It was evident that she touched them all from the many letters and comments we received after that show. I have lost a good friend.” Born in Big Pond, N.S., in 1944, MacNeil grew up with three brothers and four sisters. She fell in love with singing by the age of six, despite her shy disposition and a cleft palate that eventually required surgery. She relocated to Toronto at age 17 in 1962. Once there, she endured a succession of
School DiStrict 5 iS inviting all three year olDS to School! Ready, Set, Learn is an initiative that recognizes that families need positive connections with the school system and community agencies that provide relevant resources and information. All public elementary schools in Southeast Kootenay School District will be offering an opportunity for all three year olds to come to their neighbourhood school (children born in 2010 who have turned three by the date of the RSL event). This event is a partnership between the province, the district, and the early childhood teachers in Cranbrook, Fernie, Sparwood, Jaffray, and Elkford. Ready, Set, Learn will include opportunities such as a tour of the school, a visit to the kindergarten classroom, activities, refreshments, displays or presentations by school children. Parents and caregivers will receive helpful tips for supporting their preschooler’s learning and development. They will also be provided with information about local services available. Each child will receive a learning kit. Four year olds, those children that will be entering kindergarten in September 2013, will be invited to Kindergarten Orientation in their neighborhood school.

Rita MacNeil low-paying jobs, including a retail gig at Eaton’s and a stint as a cleaning woman. Meanwhile, she turned heads with appearances at Toronto’s famed Riverboat folk club and performances at the Mariposa folk festival, but wasn’t earning enough to pay the rent. While struggling to make ends meet, she found comfort in the fledgling women’s
movement. She began attending meetings in Toronto in the early ‘70s that she found out — years later — were being monitored by the RCMP. “If you wanted to see a bunch of women sitting around talking about issues and going on demonstrations that are peaceful and non-violent, then so be it, but I don’t think there was a reason to do that,’’ MacNeil said in 2008.
“What’s radical about equal pay for equal work? And trying to empower women to reach the potential that they have?’’ MacNeil has said these meetings gave her strength and pushed forth her songwriting — in fact, after one get-together, she was inspired to write her first song. By 1975, she was ready to independently release her first album,

“Born a Woman.’’ “All of those songs would have been sung at rallies, demonstrations or meetings that we attended,’’ MacNeil said. She had two children during that time as well — Laura and Wade — though she would eventually divorce their father. She returned to Big Pond, N.S., in 1976 and continued writing. In 1981, she issued “Part of the Mystery,’’ a record financed by family and friends. Big Pond Publishing and Productions Ltd., was operated on a minuscule budget and was forced to conduct sales on a consignment basis. Still, MacNeil was building a fan base through her consistently first-rate performances and slowly growing discography. She issued another album, “I’m Not What I Seem,’’ in 1983. Her breakthrough came with 1987’s “Flying on Your Own.’’ The album — with a cover featuring MacNeil under one of her trademark floppy hats — finally won her some radio play, largely on easy-listening stations in smaller Canadian cities. It was soon certified platinum. Also in 1987, MacNeil won her first Juno Award as Canada’s “most promising female vocalist’’ — at age 42 (she graciously accepted the award even though some thought it odd). She didn’t wait long to issue a followup, releasing “Reason to Believe’’ the following year. Some reviewers thought the record represented a compromise in MacNeil’s sound, with a move toward a more rock-oriented style. MacNeil disputed that and pointing out she always loved rock. Audiences seemed to embrace MacNeil’s new sound and the record quickly reached platinum status in Canada. She issued a popular Christmas album later that year and began recording hit records at a torrid pace, with a new release coming near-annually for the next decade.

Terrorist attacks should spark manhunts, not soul searching: Harper Stephanie Le vitz Canadian Press
LONDON — Terrorist attacks like the one that killed three people at the Boston Marathon should prompt manhunts, not soul searching, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Wednesday in a thinly veiled jab at his new Liberal rival. “When you see this type of violent act, you do not sit around trying to rationalize it or make excuses for it or figure out its root causes,’’ Harper said before leaving London after attending Margaret Thatcher’s funeral. “You condemn it categorically, and to the extent you can deal with the perpetrators, you deal with them as harshly as possible.’’ Harper’s comments appeared to be a direct rebuttal to a CBC interview with Justin Trudeau, in which the Liberal leader said examining the causes of terrorist attacks are important amid the security response. “We have to look at the root causes,’’ Trudeau said. “Now, we don’t know now if it was terrorism or a single
crazy or a domestic issue or a foreign issue. “But there is no question that this happened because there is someone who feels completely excluded. Completely at war with innocents. At war with a society. And our approach has to be, where do those tensions come from?’’ Three people died and more than 170 were injured in Monday’s blasts, which investigators believe were the result of makeshift bombs inside pressure cookers packed with nails, ball bearings and metal shards. Among the victims was 8-year-old Martin Richard of Boston, who was waiting at the finish line to see his father finish the race. “I expressed clearly yesterday and today the shock that I can only imagine that father feels whose son was killed for wanting to give him a hug,’’ Trudeau said Wednesday in response to Harper’s criticism. “I really hope that Mr. Harper rethinks the extent and the lengths he’s willing to go to personally attack people and to politicize tragedies like that.“
First Nation declares state of emergency over suicide crisis C anadian Press
OTTAWA — The remote northern Ontario community of Neskantaga is declaring a state of emergency because of a suicide crisis. The First Nation northeast of Thunder Bay has seen two of its members take their own lives over the past two weeks, throwing the fragile community of 300 into grief and fear for the stability of other families. Chief Peter Moonias says that just as the community was burying the first victim — a man in his 30s — they heard about the death of a 19-year-old man. The problems come just months after another young man killed
himself in December, a tragedy that prompted the community to close ranks and put young people on suicide watch to prevent copycat deaths. Community and regional leaders decided to declare the state of emergency on Wednesday in order to mobilize help from the Red Cross and the Ontario government’s emergency management office. The suicide rate in Neskantaga and surrounding First Nations is far higher than the national average, as communities struggle to deal with isolation, drug and alcohol addictions, poverty, poor housing and a loss of cultural identity.
Given Boston’s proximity to the border, Canadian officials have ramped up security in the wake of the attacks as American officials continue their hunt for clues and suspects in the explosions, which killed three and left 170 wounded. Harper said the U.S. did not ask Canada to take any specific mea-
sures related to the attack. “All governments, all leaders are following these kinds of violent activities anywhere in the world,’’ he said. “We’re obviously continuing to talk to our American colleagues ... we will be following this closely and do whatever we have to do to adapt.’’

he little company that could has grown from one location in Calgary in 1992 to two additional facilities in the city as well as one each in Canmore, Cranbrook and Invermere. All the stores have a varied selection of flooring and Hunter Douglas window coverings. Fitz Flooring’s Cranbrook location celebrates its third anniversary this month with new local management. Betty and Denny Vorley bring many years of flooring installation and sales experience to the Cranbrook location. Denny worked as a flooring installer for 25 years and the couple owned flooring and furniture stores in Golden and on the Sunshine Coast. “We’ve had a lot of experience working with the public in flooring and blinds,” said Betty. The Vorley’s philosophy of superior customer service was a perfect fit with the Fitz Flooring customer values. “Their business ethics are one of the things that drew us to them,” says Betty. “They have very strong business ethics.” Betty says they are excited about managing the Cranbrook store and impressed with how progressive Fitz Flooring is in its thinking. “Being a small business you have to make sure your customers are happy,” says Betty. “And being in small town, you know who your customers are.” Denny says he learned early on that the customer comes first. “That’s how I always ran our business,” says Denny. “So we’re in the

right groove with them. I don’t think I’ll have to change much. It’s a good fit.” Denny says a store that stands by its ethics and values, stands above the rest. “I know we will stand behind everything we do and everything we sell,” says Denny. The Vorleys have only been with Fitz Flooring for a few weeks but already feel like they are part of the Fitz family. “Everything is run like a family. All five stores are working together to the same end,” he says. And so far he’s been impressed with the quality of staff and installers employed at the Cranbrook location. “You can always tell when you have a crew of good guys - people who have worked in the trades,” says Denny. The Vorleys are looking forward to the challenge of bring the same quality of care and service to Cranbrook as they provided in their own stores and the other Fitz Flooring locations. “We want to take it to the next level,” says Denny. Gerry Whitton, Vice President of Fitz Flooring, agrees that it is service that sets Fitz Flooring apart from its competitors. “All of our people and are well-trained and wellversed in flooring,” says Gerry. Whitton operates on the same motto as Fitz Flooring founder and owner John Fitzsimmons’ employs: that if you wouldn’t sell it to your parents then you don’t sell it to a customer. Whitton says the Calgary-based flooring company has always stood for fair price, service and convenience. “I think people
Fitz Flooring has been flooring people in Alberta and B.C. for over 20 years. assume we’re a highpriced store, when in reality we are not. The value and the pricing is there,” he says. “We’re not a conglomerate. The company is owned by three people.” Fitz flooring has over 40 employees in its 6 locations that service western Canada and additionally employs over 25 professional installation crews. “Education is a big part of the company philosophy,” says Whitton. “We strive to ensure people get the same information no matter which store or person they are dealing with” The fact, the company empowers its management to make decisions at the store level helps managers make customer relation decisions on a case-by-case basis while expediting the process. “We have a great group of employees working with us and we trust them to do the right thing,” says Whitton. A testament to Fitz Flooring’s high customer service standards is the fact that the company received the Better Business Bureau’s Ethics Award in 2011 and readers choice gold award for best flooring company in 2012. “ We are obviously doing a lot of things right,” says Whitton. Whitton says Fitz Flooring’s affiliation with the National Flooring Alliance (the only flooring company in Western Canada that is a member) gives the company greater purchasing options, and with that comes greater values and better warranties for the customer. “Our affiliation with the NFA also allows us exclusivity on numerous product lines,” says Whitton. “This enables us to provide products

and special purchases that typical flooring stores cannot access.” Fitz Flooring is also a certified Stainmaster Flooring Centre, which means all Stainmaster ultralife flooring purchased at the stores have a 25-year extended warranty. Whitton says Fitz Flooring goes out of its way to be a good corporate citizen, especially in the smaller communities like Cranbrook, Canmore and Invermere. “We do invest in the communities we go into,” says Whitton. “We realize that it’s important to be part of it, with donations, sponsorships and involvement incl volunteering.” Fitz Flooring has been in the Invermere Valley for 11 years and has always tried to hire locally and support other local businesses. “We just want to fit in and try to do things right for the community, its people and the company,” says Whitton. Invermere store Manager, Andrew Kazakoff, also runs his Fitz Flooring store as if it were his own. “I know how I want to be treated and I understand that flooring can be a large investment. Customers should receive good value for their money in quality of service and product, whether it’s a large or smaller job,” said Kazakoff.
Kazakoff worked in commercial and residential flooring installations for 15 years and owned his own flooring store on the West Coast before joining the Fitz Flooring family, so he’s familiar with all aspects of the business – including customer service. Kazakoff joined Fitz Flooring in 2006 in sales and now manages the Invermere store. “It’s like a family business,” said Kazakoff, who has three brothers who help him in the business. He said Fitz Flooring long ago adopted the Rotary Club’s Code of Ethics and he follows them as well: Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned? Companies will always come across issues, it’s how a company resolves it that sets it apart. “Without the customer we’re nothing. We would not exist,” says Kazakoff. Fitz Floorings sales people do not work on commission, so customers do not get the high-pressure sales pitch. “When a person comes in the door, I look to meet the customers needs” said Kazakoff. “We want them to walk into their house after the flooring has been installed and say ‘boy that floor looks great, glad we went there’.”

Earth Day is a great teaching opportunity for parents Earth Day has been around for more than 40 years, and during that time, it has inspired millions of people to increase their awareness of, and their appreciation for, the environment. Since the dawn of the twenty-first century, people increasingly have adopted ecofriendly lifestyles and attitudes, and the continued embrace of environmentally friendly practices and principles has made the struggles of Earth Day pioneers, like former United States Senator Gaylord Nelson, more than worth it. Nowadays, children grow up learning about the environment in school and at home. For example, many households participate in their community’s recycling programs, and such households are raising eco-conscious children, perhaps without even recognizing they’re doing so. While a transition to a more eco-conscious lifestyle might not be seamless, it’s far easier than many might suspect and even easier for kids who have yet to develop a lifetime of habits that might not be so ecofriendly. With Earth Day on the horizon, the following are a few ways parents can
get their kids involved in activities or lifestyles that benefit the environment. Address Eating Habits Over the last several years, the opportunities to eat in an ecofriendly manner have increased dramatically. Organic foods have grown more and more popular, and parents can use this growing trend to teach their kids about the environment. When shopping for groceries, choose organic products that weren’t grown with pesticides or harmful chemicals and explain this difference to kids. Shopping locally provides another opportunity for parents to involve food when teaching kids about the environment. Explain to kids that shopping locally reduces reliance on fuel because products don’t need to be shipped, be it through the air or on the ground, to your community, minimizing fuel consumption. Teach ConservationTechniques Conservation provides another easy opportunity for parents to instill ecofriendly ideals in their children. Conservation is about reducing waste, so conservation techniques don’t involve sacrifice. Instead, they involve
being more responsible when it comes to using our resources. Parents know full well the constant reminders kids need when it comes to dental hygiene. But use these daily reminders about brushing and flossing as an opportunity to impart a lesson about the environment. Instead of keeping the faucet running while brushing your teeth, turn the faucet off and encourage kids to do the same. When they ask why, explain that this helps conserve water, and show them how it’s just as easy and effective to clean teeth without the water running as it is when the faucet is on. This teaches kids that conservation is simple and often just requires minimal effort to make a big difference. There are additional lessons about conservation that parents can impart. For instance, when grocery shopping, always make a list before leaving the house and explain to
kids that you do this so you don’t have to make two trips to the store and waste the gas that the second trip would require. In addition, encourage kids to turn the lights off when they leave a room to better conserve energy. Purchase Recycled Products Recycling is a practice that many of today’s kids grew up with, and as a result, many of them might take it for granted, failing to fully realize the positive impact they’re making whenever they recycle. If recycling is as natural to kids as breathing, then it’s no surprise they might not recognize its impact. One way parents can address this issue is to purchase products made from recycled materials. A host of products are made from recycled materials, from the paper you put in the printer to the toys under the tree onChristmas morning. Explain to kids why you’re
choosing these products, and let them know such products wouldn’t be possible without their own recycling efforts. Another way to help kids realize the value
of recycling is to make crafts from recycled products. For instance, make a papier mache globe to celebrate Earth Day by using old newspapers as your pri-
mary material. Such lessons show kids their efforts make an impact and increase the likelihood they’ll continue this ecofriendly lifestyle well into adulthood.

It’s In Your Hands April 22, 2013 is Earth Day
Recycling 101 - The Basics Did you know you can use ANY yellow bin you see around the East Kootenay? With over 600 bins available, recycling has never been easier! Here are some quick tips to remember: • All plastics MUST be clean and have a number between 1 and 6. That number must be in the triangular recycling symbol. If there is no number, it should go in the garbage if it can’t be reused. • All plastic grocery/shopping bags can be recycled -- even if they don’t have a number on them. This is the only item that can be recycled if it doesn’t have a number. All other plastics must be numbered • Styrofoam CANNOT be recycled -- even if it’s marked with a #6. • Tin cans should be well rinsed with labels removed, if possible. • Cardboard should be flattened to save bin space. • Foil covered or waxy papers (like milk cartons or foil greeting cards) cannot be recycled. Milk cartons can be taken to the Cranbrook Bottle Depot for recycling.
Only Certain Glass Is Recyclable Glass goes in the yellow bins marked “Glass Only”. The only glass that is accepted for recycling is food-grade glass, which is anything that holds your food or beverages. This includes: • jam jars • salsa jars
• olive oil jars • beverage bottles Drinking glasses, dishes, picture frames, trinkets, ceramics, light bulbs, window glass, etc. should NEVER go in the glass recycling bin. They contaminate the load. Please remember to remove all lids. In the Cranbrook/Kimberley area, the glass recycling bins are located at the Cranbrook Transfer Station, Christ the Servant Church parking lot, Cranbrook Bottle Depot, College of the Rockies, Kimberley Transfer Station, New & Nearly New, and Lindsay Park Elementary School.
Learn More About Earth Day Earth Week is a great time to think about what each of us can do to make a positive difference. Reducing, reusing and recycling really add up.

NEWS Student’s use of medical marijuana causing a stir at Calgary college C anadian Press
CALGARY — A post-secondary student in Calgary is raising some questions about whether she should be allowed to take her medication at school. Lisa Kirkman studies journalism at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) and suffers from severe chronic pain and a blood disorder.
Kirkman manages her condition with the aid of medical marijuana, which she takes through a vaporizer. The vaporizer produces an odour and makes a slight noise — and has caught the attention of school officials. Kirkman says she’s been told that SAIT may ask her not to use the vaporizer within any of its buildings. SAIT says no decisions have
been made. “This is a unique situation and we are reviewing our options to ensure that SAIT meets all of its legal obligations to both groups,’’ the school said in a statement. Kirkman said the situation isn’t ideal for her either. “Obviously, if I could just pop some Ibuprofen, I would do that,’’ she said. “I would prefer to just be able to go to school
and not have anyone know that I have any health issues a and just carry on.’’ Kirkman suggests one solution could be a designated area where she could use her vaporizer without disrupting other students. Her medical permit also allows her to smoke marijuana in designated areas, but she says she would prefer to use the vaporizer.
Zoo to decide soon on relocation of elephants C anadian Press
CALGARY — The Calgary Zoo’s female elephants could soon have a new home. Last year the zoo announced it was going to relocate the pachyderms because after 40 years, the zoo couldn’t give the animals the
space they required. A decision will be coming within six weeks after zoo officials finish visiting sites to determine the best placement for Kamala, Swarna and Maharani. The zoo says the elephants’ long-term welfare is better served by
being part of a large social group; something that can only be achieved at a facility with more year-round space. A decision on a new home for Spike, the male elephant, will be made in conjunction with the Miami Zoo,
Collision between vehicle and horses kills woman C anadian Press
DUCHESS, Alta. — A young woman is dead after the small car she was driving was severely damaged in a collision with two horses in southern Alberta. The crash happened Tuesday evening on Highway 550 near Duchess, about 200 ki-
lometres east of Calgary. RCMP say the 19-year-old victim, who was the lone occupant of the car, was heading east toward the small community when her vehicle slammed into the horses. They say the animals were in the middle of the road, and that
weather conditions were clear at the time while the road surface was dry. The woman, who was from Duchess, died at the scene but police have not released her name. There is no word on whether the horses survived the impact.
which still owns him. Animal-rights organizations have taken issue with the decision of the Valley Zoo in Edmonton to keep its lone female elephant, Lucy. They have pointed out elephants are by nature social animals and have said keeping Lucy alone at the Edmonton zoo in the winter months is like keeping humans in solitary confinement in Siberia.
The case has attracted the support of several celebrities, including retired game-show host Bob Barker and former hockey player Georges Laraque. Zoo and city officials have said moving Lucy would be too stressful and could even be life-threatening for the elephant. However, they have also said Lucy will be the last elephant to be housed at the Valley Zoo.

The Bra Lady
Is Coming to Size You Up Are you tired of feeling saggy, lumpy, pinched or strained? Well you’re not alone. As you’ve probably seen on Oprah or read in women’s magazines, over 80 per cent of all women wear the wrong size bra. Here’s where Barb Chapman, the Bra Lady, comes in. Chapman is coming to CRANBROOK, SATURDAY, APRIL 27 to outfit you with the best possible bra for your body. Chapman said she will be seeing clients on a one-on-one basis, explaining the benefits of good bras and measuring their bodies properly.“ Most women just want to find a good-fitting bra that’s not uncomfortable,” Chapman said. “What they don’t realize is that a good support bra is also important for blood circulation and enhanced lymph drainage. Chapman has over 200 bra sizes available for ordering, ranging from 30AA to 52KK. It’s likely that you’ll fit somewhere between those sizes. She offers these questions for women to ask themselves: • Do you have a drawer full of bras but none that fit comfortably? • Does your bust line “bounce” when you walk while wearing your “everyday” bra? • Do you overflow the cup of your bra? • Do your bra straps slip off or dig into your shoulders leaving red and painful marks? • Does your bra ride up in the back because you tightened the straps to give you added support? • Have you ever begun an exercise class only to drop out because your breasts ached from lack of support while jumping or running? If you answered yes to any of these you are in need of a new bra, and a custom one could be the way to go. YOU’VE TRIED ALL THE REST - NOW TRY THE BEST • NO UNDERWIRES • NO ELASTIC STRAPS • NO STRAPS FALLING OFF SHOULDERS • NO RIDING UP IN THE BACK You can sign up for Chapman’s bra clinic by calling 1-800-254-3938 by April 24. She doesn’t come into town very often so she advises booking as soon as possible.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You are fiery right now, especially when dealing with a personal issue. If you hit a “nay,” you’ll automatically turn up your creativity in order to get a “yea.” Others seem very into having control. You might need to step back and let them take the lead. Tonight: Put on your game face. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Understand what is happening behind the scenes with a relative or neighbor. This person might not be revealing as much as you would like. As a result, you will stay guarded until he or she decides to open up. You might need to verbalize your terms. Tonight: Hang in there. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You can be possessive. You actually might feel a strong need to try to keep up with the Joneses. By noon, you’ll let go of this attitude, communicate better and draw others toward you. Express your true values. Tonight: Return all calls before deciding who, what or where.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) Get as much done as possible before noon. Afterward, you might have to deal with a money matter or a decision. You know what you want -- be willing to pay for it as well. You might change your mind once you see the cost. Tonight: Buy a treat on the way home. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Suddenly, the cards are stacked in your favor. Your personality and magnetism help you get what you desire, even if it is just an easy day or some extra free time. Know what you want! Others clearly are drawn to you. Tonight: Do not hesitate to ask for what you want. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You might encounter a fun-loving person in the morning and suddenly find yourself on an adventure. Detach some in the evening, as you might have some responsibilities to take care of. Not everyone thinks fun is a good reason to shirk responsibilities. Tonight: Vanish. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You rush into a project with an
For Better or Worse
eye on the goal of completion. In the afternoon, you’ll discover even more reasons to cross items off your to-do list. Extend lunch as long as possible. You might want to relax and enjoy the company. Tonight: Where the action is. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Staying grounded could be nearly impossible this morning. What you accomplish in little to no time might surprise even you, if you stay centered. If you do not want to accept any more responsibilities, simply say so. Others will pitch in to help. Tonight: To the wee hours. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Deal with a partner or an associate directly in the morning. You might not be thrilled by everything that is happening. Look past the immediate to the long term, and you will be able to go along with the program. Tonight: Reach out to a friend or loved one at a distance. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Someone could become so controlling that you might want to completely overpower him
or her. Do you really think a showdown will work? Be subtle, yet claim your power. The way you visualize a partnership or a financial deal could become possible. Tonight: Togetherness. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Others might prove to be a hindrance. You can handle what is happening simply by ignoring them and not responding to their requests or demands. Continue as you have, and you will like how you land. Be more forthright in a discussion. Tonight: Sort through invitations. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) A loved one dominates your morning, at least in your thoughts. What you’ll discover is that you need to find another way around a problem. Apply your ingenuity, and answers will come forward soon enough. Tonight: Toss yourself into a favorite pastime.

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: My husband’s parents are in their mid-70s. They are both in good health and financially stable. The problem is, my mother-in-law has a bit of hypochondria along with some anxiety. She has self-diagnosed herself with many “syndromes” (such as fibromyalgia, restless leg, irritable bowel), and she refuses to exercise. Her syndromes, which are exacerbated by her anxiety, keep her from getting out of the house, unless it involves an activity that she truly enjoys, like shopping. My in-laws don’t have a wide social circle, and Mom refuses to try to make new friends. You can’t have a conversation with her without the topic turning to her various maladies. I believe this is causing her some depression. Our town has many great programs for seniors, and I know both of my in-laws would benefit from them. I have repeatedly suggested to my mother-in-law that she get outside more, get some exercise, volunteer, take classes at the senior center, etc., but she refuses. Annie, I understand that Mom may have some physical ailments, but being home all day and inactive surely can’t be making her better. It’s so important to remain physically and mentally active, and it’s frustrating to see a wonderful couple, a wonderful woman, throw her “golden years” away. -- Frustrated Daughter-in-Law Dear Daughter-in-Law: Your heart is in the right place, but please don’t pressure your mother-in-law to take care of herself the way you would. While exercise would be great, it only works if she’s willing to do it. To some extent, she likes her various maladies and isn’t ready to get rid of them. The best you can do right now is suggest that she see her doctor to be properly tested, evaluated and treated. And if you find a program at the senior center that you think she would like, offer to pick her up and go with her. Dear Annie: I’m in love with a girl who said she loved me, too. We dated for a while last summer, and we’re still best friends. But “Lucy” has another boyfriend now, and he is a good guy. We all get along, but I’m extremely jealous that he has her. I’m pretty sure he knows how I feel. I’m still heartbroken about the breakup. I think about it all the time. I’m considering talking to Lucy to see whether there is any chance of us getting back together someday. Should I? -- Lover Boy Dear Lover Boy: Not unless you are absolutely certain that Lucy wants the same thing. Otherwise, you will only be hurt again. We assume the reasons for the original breakup still exist. Also, she has someone else in her life now, and it is not appropriate to make a play for his girl. If he is aware that you are still interested in Lucy, rest assured, she is, too. If she wanted to get back together, she would let you know. We recommend you spend a lot less time in her company so you can learn to get over her. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Rocky Mount, Va.,” about allowing dogs at funerals. When my sister was in hospice for four months, we told the staff how her dog, “Abby,” was searching the house and waiting at the door of her home every day. The wonderful staff suggested we bring Abby in. The dog would check on my sister first, then greet everyone else and finally lie down on the floor beside my sister’s bed. She did this every day we brought her. Toward the very end, Abby seemed to know that her wonderful master was dying. Now, she is a happy well-adjusted companion to another sister. If at all possible, I recommend people let pets be with their masters at the end. Instinct seems to ease their minds, and even though the animals grieve, they are no longer waiting for them at the door. -- Getting Better Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Born in Gilbert Plains Manitoba, October 25 1957, Debbie passed away suddenly in Marysville, BC on April 14, 2013 at the age of 55. Her parents, John and Stella Choma, raised three girls on their farm. Debbie, the youngest, loved the farm and many times would tell stories about frost on the inside walls of the old farmhouse, frozen hair, no plumbing and the last of the weekly bath water. When all of us were riding buses to school she rode a horse to their one room schoolhouse. Debbie was born of Ukrainian heritage and would display her pride and love any chance she could. She loved her family and would cherish any social gatherings with her uncles, aunts and cousins. Debbie had another family, her friends, all whom she loved dearly. She involved herself in the community participating wherever she could. Her singing career began in Gilbert Plains at an early age when she performed with a band called â€œ Five and a Half â€?, she being the half. She was an accomplished singer who loved performing with the Steppinâ€™ Out Dancers and all who participated in â€œLillith Affairâ€?.

She could also be found on the Nordic Trails with her traditional classic skis, on the golf course, in hockey rinks and at recitals and concerts of all types. She enjoyed hiking, camping and living the moment within the beauty of our mountains. She never turned down a cold beer and loved sitting on the deck sipping wine with her family and friends as the sun went down behind the hills. Debbie was of positive spirit, the kindest most forgiving soul. Even as she battled cancer this past year, she displayed courage and optimism all of us could learn from. She worked at the J.F. Hazard and then at the Kimberley Medical Clinic for 32 years. She always considered the â€œDocsâ€? and staff her family, and treated all who walked through the doors with respect and dignity. She was the proudest mother and grandmother of her two boys, three step children, and one grandson. Debbie was predeceased by her parents, John and Stella Choma. She leaves to mourn her loving husband Adrian, her children Derek Carter Stoughton of McKinney, Texas, Scott Tyler Stoughton (Erica) of Austin, Texas, Shawn Blais (Trina) and grandson Dawson Blais, Carrie Blais (Shawn) of Kimberley, Jimmy Blais of Vancouver, sisters Shirley (Phil) of Winnipeg and Evelynne (Billy) of Gilbert Plains. She also leaves behind many uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews, and all her many friends.

Obituaries Yosh Nakahara 1933 - 2013 With grieving hearts, the family of Yosh Nakahara sadly announce his passing on Wednesday, April 10, 2013.
Yosh was born in Vancouver, BC on August 7, 1933. He came to Cranbrook as a boy. He left as a young man to serve overseas in the Canadian Peace Corps, and then returned to Cranbrook to start his family. Throughout his years he did many things that touched many lives. He may have served you a meal or a beverage at the Rainbow Dining and Dancing Club, or he may have helped to build your home or business as he was an excellent carpenter. Yosh was a Legion member and spent much of his time with good friends there, either on the dance floor or at the meat draws. He was also a valued and respected member of the Fraternal Order Of Eagles, where he held nearly every title the organization had. From member, to secretary, all the way up to Grand Worthy Provincial President, Yosh represented the Cranbrook Aerie throughout Canada and the USA with dignity and was greatly admired and loved. Through these organizations and throughout his life, Yosh made many wonderful friends who will all miss him dearly. Left to cherish his memory are his beloved partner, Karen Deveau, his children Rob Ismond (Dawn), Donna Nakahara (Herb Richter), Colin Nakahara and Noriko Nakahara (Jason White), his brothers Kutsumi and Koichi and sister Noriko and their families, as well as his sister-in-laws Barb and Penny and their families, his grandchildren Michelle, Christina, Corilynn and Tay. He will be sadly missed by Karenâ€™s family as well. Yosh was predeceased by his mother Tsune â€œTerryâ€? and his father Rinzo â€œGeorgeâ€?, and his brothers Genshiro and Hiroki. There will be a Celebration Of Yoshâ€™s Life at 2:00 pm on Saturday, April 27, 2013 at the Fraternal Order Of Eagles Hall in Cranbrook. Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service. Condolences for the family can be offered at: www.mcphersonfh.com
Norman Lyle Eidsness â€œIkeâ€? 1926-2013 Norman passed away peacefully at home with his family by his side on Monday, April 15, 2013 at 86 1/2 years. He was born September 12, 1926 at Plentywood, Montana (it being the closest hospital to his home in Gladmar, Sask). He received the nickname of â€œIkeâ€? in high school during the Eisenhower years. He started line work with Manitoba Power Commission, then in Victoria with Hume & Rumble Construction. In 1964 he started with B.C. Hydro in Golden and in 1970 moved to Cranbrook. Ike was a 60-year member of IBEW, a long-time member of the Cranbrook Golf Club and the Canadian Legion, and a member of the Cranbrook Curling Club and the B.C. Hydro Power Pioneers. Before his health issues, he enjoyed golf, fly fishing, camping, playing blackjack, with many trips to Reno and Vegas, playing pool with his golf buddies, family gettogethers, playing his banjo-ukulele at sing-songs with friends. He was also passionate about his vegetable garden and was a â€œgarden guruâ€? for his granddaughter Tamara when she took over. The family is extremely grateful to daughter-in-law, Colleen for her tireless and compassionate care for him during his last days. We also wish to thank Dr. Van Rietschoten for his dedication and care. Ike is survived by his wife Eileen of 59 1/2 years, son Mitch (Colleen) of Cranbrook, daughter Lauren Jinjoe (Dale) of Murrieta, California and son Glenn (Marnie) of Vancouver; his sister Shirley Brizan of Burnaby. He was proud of his five granddaughters, Janine, Tamara (Steve and Danny Mercandelli), Brooke (Ronny) Belkin, Shannon, Ashley; and newborn great grandson, Cohen Belkin. He was predeceased by his parents, Birger and Thenora Eidsness. A Celebration of Ikeâ€™s life will be held at McPherson Funeral Home in Cranbrook on Saturday, April 20, 2013 at 1:00 pm. If friends so desire, memorial donations in Ikeâ€™s honour may be made to the charity of their choice. Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service.
