The grizzly bears are up and about C AROLYN GR ANT


Spring Honda, represented by Corey and David Spring (pictured above) took two awards at Saturday night’s ‘Evening of Excellence,’ the Cranbrook and District Chamber of Commerce business awards gala, held at St. Eugene Mission Resort. Spring Honda won for Customer Service Excellence and for Business Person of the Year. See Tuesday’s Daily Townsman for a special photo feature.

One of the things Susan Bond had hoped for, after recovering from a grizzly attack last fall, was that people would let others know when they saw bear tracks, especially around popular hiking areas. She received just such a heads up last Thursday from hiker Lyle Grisedale of Kimberley. Bond and her husband, Peter Moody, were both badly injured when they surprised a grizzly sow and her two cubs last November while walking near their home on LD Ranch Road. Grisedale was hiking on the Wycliffe prairie last Thursday — as the crow flies not all that far from where Bond and Moody were

toward the second butte when he saw the tracks. He says he’s hiked this particular area for years and never seen grizzly

sign, but that doesn’t mean the bears aren’t there.

Leader charged in conspiracy didn’t know, lawyer says CAM FORTEMS Kamloops Daily News

One of three men accused of plotting to kill a Cranbrook drug rival was instead concerned with running his “Mr. Frosty” business of supplying after-hours booze and cocaine and had no knowledge of any murder plan, his lawyer said Thursday.

Lonnie Adams was too busy running ‘Mr. Frosty’ business, court told

Don Campbell, who represents Lonnie Adams, began his closing submissions to the jury Thursday afternoon in the murder-conspiracy trial. The Crown has alleged Adams was part of a criminal organization, a rung higher than co-accused Lorne Carry and Colin Correia.

Campbell said evidence heard in court from recordings made by RCMP show Adams wasn’t conspiring to kill a drug rival. Instead, Campbell said those conversations show he was concerned with running an illegal booze and drug operation he called Mr. Frosty.

Prosecutor Ann Katrine Saettler told the jury earlier in the day to “look at Mr. Adams’ part and role in the organization.” She also noted that evidence introduced in court showed Adams told key Crown witness Gary Shank that Shank was being brought

in for “heavy work.” That heavy work was murder of drug rival Doug Mahon. “That’s a code,” Saettler said. “Words are not used on the phone like ‘murder’ and ‘killing’ when you’re talking about doing this things.” Adams, Lorne Carry and Colin Correia are charged

with conspiracy to commit murder in the trial that began Feb. 6. Carry is also charged with possession and attempt to transfer an AK-47-like automatic rifle, while Correia is charged with possessing and attempting to transfer a restricted handgun.

Cranbrook siblings take top spot in film competition A r n e P e t rys h e n Townsman Staff

To win the Olympus Showdown film competition takes a mix of creativity, talent and organization, as the contest gives filmmakers only 72 hours to put together their submission. For the group that won the competition, which includes two area locals, all of those things came together. Ryan and Sharai Tapp both grew up in Kimberley, and have lived in Cranbrook as well. Ryan currently lives in Nelson, while Sharai lives in Whistler. Both had instrumental parts in the three day production of the film, “Katch Up,” said their father Randy Tapp. “Both my kids were involved in the film that won,” Tapp said. “It’s really a big event and remarkable that they got to that level.” The team was awarded a $10,000 prize for their efforts. Sharai stars in the five minute film as the genie. She is starting out on a career in acting. The whole competi-

Ryan was brought on for his musical talents. He took a music program in Nelson and has worked on a number of film soundtracks. During the competition, he worked under a tight deadline to develop the films score,

with only 12 hours by the time the film was ready for him to jump in. “They are given 72 hours from scratch,” he said. “They do as much as possible to keep it a level playing field.” The contest includes some well-funded filmmakers from

abroad that come to compete and included 48 teams in total. The teams pay an entry fee, then the organizers tell them the rules and the clock starts ticking down the 72 hours, in which they have to complete the production, from filming to final edit. They

then screen the films for the judges, who choose the finalists. After the awards are given out, there are three nights of public screenings in Whistler. “I’m pretty proud of them,” he said. To watch the short film go to vimeo. com/64159024.

Are you due for your immunization shots? IHA encourages the public to think about being vaccinated during National Immunization Awareness Week tetanus boosters Wednesday, April 24 at the Public Produce Garden, but the last day to sign up is Monday, April 22. The nurses will have a tent set up, so the event will be going ahead rain or shine. To register call Terri or Charlotte at Interior Health at 250-420-2207. Meanwhile, you can walk into the Public Health Unit in Cranbrook (beside the hospital) or Kimberley Health Centre (in Townsite) from Monday to Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., and a public health nurse will be available to give you immunization shots. When most people are vaccinated for a disease, it makes it  harder

for that disease to spread from person to person. When people stop immunizing, diseases come back and that becomes especially risky for those who may be more vulnerable like young children, seniors, and people with certain medical conditions or compromised immune systems. “This year we saw an increase in cases of whooping cough (pertussis) here in Interior Health and some parts of our province experienced significant outbreaks,” said Dr. Rob Parker, Medical Health Officer with Interior Health. “This is an important reminder that we need to keep our immunization rates high to help prevent outbreaks

lent sources of information about vaccinations. For more information, contact Cranbrook Public Health Unit at 250-420-2207, or Kimberley Health Centre at 250-427-2215.

Trial to hear defence closing submissions Friday Continued from page 1 The trial centres around Shank, a lifelong criminal who testified that he confessed to RCMP that he was hired to kill Mahon by the three men. He was then signed on by RCMP to be a police agent and wear a recording device in various scenarios with the three accused. But defence lawyer Campbell noted the law is complex. The Crown must prove that once Shank became a police agent, Adams conspired with at least one other Lyle Grisedale photo

Grisedale estimates the track is seven inches across.

Grizzlies up and about Continued from page 1 “I’ve never come across tracks like that before but this one just happened to step into soft dirt close to the creek,” he said. “If it was walking on the grass, you’d never see the tracks.” Grisedale said he wanted to get the word out because this part of Wycliffe is very popular with hikers. He also contacted

Susan Bond. “Last fall grizzly tracks were sighted in the days before and after our attack,” Bond said. “I do want people to be aware that bears are out there. One thing people may not know is that grizzlies are primarily vegetarians. At this time of year they are after the new grass, shoots and

roots, tubers. As vegetation is starting to green up, the bears are out there.” Grisedale says there is no doubt in his mind that the tracks he photographed are those of a grizzly. “There’s no black bear with a foot that long. And you can see the claws. It’s definitely a grizzly and a big one.”

I read with interest the article that appeared in the April 18, 2013, edition of the Cranbrook Daily Townsman entitled, “Most Canadians have BPA in Urine, Lead traces in Blood: Report.” In the piece, bisphenol A, or BPA, is identified as being found in plastic “food and beverage containers.” Within the context of beverage containers used to package bottled water and other non-alcoholic consumer beverages, this statement requires clarification. BPA is not used in the production of PET plastic-based beverage containers, which have been in use by the Canadian beverage industry for more than 25 years. According to Health Canada (www., BPA is used to “make a hard, clear plastic known as polycarbonate, which is used in many consumer products, including reusable water bottles and baby bottles. It is also found in epoxy resins, which act as a protective lining on the inside of metal-based food and beverage cans.”

Drowning in Droppings Hazing — Wow, this suggestion certainly brought merriment and enlivened the discussions in and around the coffee shops. My favorite comment — “Isn’t hazing kind of like herding cats?” Well, it has proven to be just another delay of the inevitability of what really has to be done. With the denial of permission to haze the deer, the magnitude of the problem has multiplied making the real solution more traumatic. It was good, however, to see that the Provincial Government has claimed ownership of the deer. This declaration

should enable all of the hard working bylaw officers the authority to issue tickets to the Government for not removing their deer doo-doo. I know that I have at least one garbage can full in my yard just waiting for them to pick it up. We seem to be drowning in doo-doo these days and not all of it comes from the deer. I’m hoping to see said by-law officers issuing tickets to the dog owners that somehow never ever see their dogs doo-dooing all over town. This has likely resulted in a cost savings at the little used doo-doo bag stations strategically placed about town. I ask: “Have they ever run out of doo-doo bags?” I suspect not. Just walk the streets, alleys and our walking trails. See the disgusting dropping for yourself. “Political Fence Sitting” could be the new replacement for wrestling at the Olympics. We have plenty of that going on in all levels of our government. I just had to get that off my chest. I’ll be okay. Bill Roberts Kimberley

The art of political hardball New Democratic Party leader Adrian Dix launched his election campaign last week in Premier Christy Clark’s riding of Vancouver-Point Grey, a jab that was likely inspired by his political mentor Glen Clark. The earlier premier Clark kicked off his 1996 election bid with a rally in the same riding, represented by then B.C. Liberal leader (and later premier himself ) Gordon Campbell. That Premier Clark went on to narrowly win the election, though not the seat, which stayed Liberal. Dix’s presence there Tuesday was a reflection of the expectation that if the opinion polls hold, the NDP will both win the government and unseat the premier. On the same day that Dix was conducting his demonstration of the art of political hardball, the B.C. Liberals were fielding one of their own, and to more immediate effect. For the Liberal party researchers had turned up some damaging, if dated, comments about aboriginal people and French-Canadians by the NDP nominee in Kelowna-Mission, Day-leen Van Ryswyk. Unlike the Liberals, the New Democrats hadn’t done their homework on her, witness not just the above-cited comments, but the one reported yesterday by Vancouver Sun columnist Craig McInnes. “The government is nothing more than a big black hole that feeds off the working man, sucking his last penny from his hand so they can give it away freely or lose it stupidly on things like fast ferries and about a zillion other stupid things.” This circa the 1990s, when Dix’s thenboss Glen Clark was touting the fast ferries as a vision for the future. Given time, the Liberals might have had some fun with that one as well. But the hapless Van Ryswyk was off the NDP slate within two hours of the Liberal

press release, Dix having whipped up a quick batch of lemonade with the lemon he’d been dealt earlier in the day. The Liberals, overplaying their hand as they often do, then accused Dix of hesitation: “She should have been immediately fired.” But on that charge one thought back to the Liberal handling of the ethnic outreach scandal, when it took Christy Clark a full day to acknowledge the problem, another day to accept the resignation of her deputy chief of staff and the better part of a week to appear in the legislature in person to face questions over the fiasco. The other point worth Vaughn noting about the brief controversy was the timPalmer ing. The Liberals chose to release the poisoned fruits of their research on the opening day of the campaign. If they’d held off until after official nomination day, April 26, B.C. election rules would have prevented the New Democrats from appointing a replacement. Either they decided the dirt wouldn’t keep until then, or, more likely, they hoped for a boost on opening day to reduce the NDP lead in public opinion. That much was suggested by the polls released on opening day — an Angus Reid survey that had the New Democrats ahead by 17 points, an Ipsos Reid survey that put the lead at 19 points. Those gaps, however malleable they prove to be in the days ahead, went a long way toward explaining the respective opening strategies of the two major parties. Clark spent a significant amount of her time campaigning in areas that usually elect Liberals, including Chilliwack, Kamloops, Prince George and the Peace River country. I was particularly struck by her decision to pay an early visit to the Peace because the Liberals won the region’s two

seats handily in the last three elections. But there was Jack Weisgerber, the former three-term MLA for Peace South and now a government supporter, telling reporter Jas Johal of Global TV that the Liberals face a tough fight in the region this time out. While Clark was trying to shore up support in government-held ridings, Dix was roaming freely through high-profile territory that could change hands if the opinion polls remain in his favour. Apart from the premier’s riding, he dropped in on the Abbotsford bailiwick of Finance Minister Mike de Jong, on Comox, currently held by Education Minister Don McRae, and on Vancouver-Langara, where Social Development minister Moira Stilwell is seeking re-election. McRae tried to turn the tables on the strategy by showing up for the Dix event in his riding, which had New Democrats joking that the Liberals were reduced to crashing their events as the only way to meet a crowd of happy British Columbians. The Liberals, for their part, were wishing all voters could see the Dix interview with reporter Rob Brown, aired Thursday on CTV: Brown asking how the NDP intends to spend the $300 million they are taking out of the Liberal education fund, Dix ducking the question and looking chippy while he does it. I’ve seen that side of Dix in scrums before but not of late. If it surfaces again, that could be trouble for the New Democrats. But at this point the offending interview was a mere snapshot of a campaign in progress, like others taken during the week, opinion polls included. String them together and you’ve got a narrative for the election. But we’ll only know which ones counted and which ones didn’t after the votes are cast on May 14.

Yellow-Bellied Cowards in Washington And now for a few choice words about the recent Senate vote that scuttled universal background checks on gun purchases. And the first three of those words are… Yellow-Bellied Cowards. Here’s a couple more. Gutless, Craven, Chicken-Hearted Invertebrates. Dastardly, Lily-Livered, Spineless Jellyfish with the moral compunction of inbred Piranhas crowded into a too-small tank filled with liquid meth. That giant, arrogant pimp known as the NRA should be laughing hysterically after its lackeys trashed the ephemeral spirit of compromise that had settled over Washington like a soft dawn mist. Ninety percent of Republicans voted against an issue 90 percent of the American people support. A bipartisan bill that was so watered down it was translucent. Leaked moisture all through the Senate chamber to a depth of a half-inch. Would have easily supported two schools of guppies. The Senators that deigned to speak before scurrying down their greasy little wormholes to bunk in the nether regions of hell whined that pro-gun forces punish politicians for votes, while pro-gun control

forces don’t. Nobody mentioned the right thing to do or keeping automatic weapons out of the hands of felons or making the country or our schools safer. You know, their job. The NRA, itself worried about being primaried from the right by other gun associations, encouraged its well-compensated Will Durst hookers to compete among themselves to see who could lie most outrageously. Numerous Senators claimed the bill would lead to a national gun registry even though the very bill they spoke of included provisions to specifically prohibit such a thing. Perhaps it needs to be spelled out in simpler language like: “Gun Registry -Bad. Not Good. No-Go. Not Going to Happen.” Besides, exactly what is wrong with a national gun registry? You have to register a car. Most cities mandate bicycles be licensed. You need a card to take a book out of a library for crum’s sakes. Proving that some people are much more comfortable with guns than they are books. Which is part of the problem. In what was surely meant as an inside joke, Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn com-


plained the bill would raise taxes. Why stop there? And child pornographers will camp in your back yard practicing Sharia law with uncircumcised goats riddled with Chinese bird flu. This time the NRA may have overreached. Perpetrated an outrage too far. A revulsion too great. Could very well have created its own Frankenstein monster. 90 percent is a big figure. You’d think even the most casual of voters might tend to remember when someone turns their back on the country, jumps up and down on a litter of newborn puppies, then parties. And it would only take a committed few to throw their allegiance to candidates who pledge loyalty to the nation rather than a lobby that focuses on weapons of mass destruction. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal wasn’t kidding. The GOP’s path is clear. It is doomed to be the rich, white guy, anti-science, progun, stupid party. Destined to slowly strangle on its own gurgling incoherencies until it is no longer comprehensible or relevant. Couldn’t happen soon enough to a nicer bunch of rich white guys. And their grinning, gun-toting, treacherous minions. Will Durst is a political comedian living in San Francisco

Canada beats Germany at U18 tournament C ANADIAN PRESS

SOCHI, Russia Connor McDavid of the Erie Otters scored for the second straight game to lead Canada in a 3-1 win over Germany on Saturday at the IIHF under-18 world championship. McDavid finished with a goal and an assist as Canada improved to 2-0 at the tournament. Canada opened the tournament with a 4-1 in over Slovakia. He assisted on Madison Bowey’s opening goal just 1:27 in the

game while on the power play. “It was a great pass Connor McDavid gave me,” said Bowey. “I had a lot of time and space so I just kind of took it and put it in.” Yan-Pavel Laplante of the P.E.I. Rocket made it 2-0 when he scored at 11:22 of the first as Canada finished the period with a 15-7 edge in shots on goal. McDavid pushed the lead to 3-0 midway through the second, but Germany got one back when Janik Moser scored with under a

minute left in the frame. “I had a pretty good game but I was just doing it for the team,” said McDavid. “I came here with not too many expectations. I’m playing well right now but, like I said, it’s all about the team.” Canadian goalie

Philippe Desrosiers finished with a 25 saves on 26 shots, while Kevin Reich was kept busy at the other end with 36 saves on 39 shots. Canada next plays Switzerland on Monday. The tournament is being played on two 2014 Olympic rinks. Canada will play the first round in Group B against Slovakia, Germany, Switzerland and Sweden at the 7,000seat Shayba Arena. The United States is looking for a fifth straight gold medal at

the event. The Americans and host Russia are in Group A with Latvia, Finland and the Czech Republic at the 12,000-seat Bolshoy Ice Dome. Many top players are unavailable to participate at the tournament because they’re still involved in playoffs with their junior clubs. The semifinals are on April 26 with the final on April 28. Canada won gold in 2003 and 2008 but then was out of the medals until it took bronze at last year’s event.

Curler Glenn Howard wins Players’ Championship GREGORY STRONG Canadian Press

TORONTO - Glenn Howard capped the curling season in style Sunday by hitting a clutch double takeout with his final shot to win the Players’ Championship at the Mattamy Athletic Centre. He also let the stacked field know that he just might be the skip to beat at the Olympic trials later this year. Howard, from Coldwater, Ont., scored two in the final end for a 4-3 victory over Winnipeg’s Mike McEwen in the final Grand Slam event

of the season. Howard won all seven of his games against a field that included top domestic and international competition. “We’re as good as anybody right now,” Howard said. “I can’t wait to get out to those trials in December and see if we can let the old guys keep playing.” The 50-year-old skip and teammates Wayne Middaugh, Brent Laing and Craig Savill have been strong again this season after an excellent 2012 campaign. Howard won the Tim Hortons Brier last year and fol-

lowed it up with his fourth world title. He owns top spot on the World Curling Tour’s Order of Merit and took the bronze at the recent national playdowns. Winning the last Grand Slam event on his final shot was a nice way to head into the summer. “This is a big event, this is 15 of the best teams in the world and we just won it,” Howard said. “So it doesn’t get any better. This is harder to win than the Brier, this is harder to win than the worlds as far as I’m concerned because you’ve got all the best

teams here. “So to win it, you’re pumped.” Howard and McEwen both seemed content to chip away throughout the game with neither skip able to generate much offence. McEwen was light with his final throw in the last end, giving Howard the chance to go for two instead of a single that would have forced an extra end. “Only one team gets to win their last game and that happens to be us this year,” Laing said. “So yeah, it’s awesome.” Earlier, Scotland’s

Eve Muirhead defeated Margaretha Sigfridsson 8-5 in the women’s final for her first career Grand Slam title. The win came just a few weeks after Muirhead beat the Swedish skip in the gold-medal game at the world championship in Latvia. “We knew we had to be sharp against the Swedish girls,” Muirhead said. “We always have huge battles against them and we have a pretty high success rate against them in a final. “To get another one is great.”

McDowell wins playoff to capture RBC Heritage title PETE IACOBELLI Associated Press

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. - For all the big moments in Graeme McDowell’s career, his resume was short on PGA Tour victories. McDowell relished what he called his first authentic tour win, defeating fellow U.S. Open champ Webb Simpson in a playoff at the RBC Heritage on Sunday. McDowell’s been at the centre of some of golf’s biggest moments, from his rousing triumph at Pebble Beach in 2010 to capturing the winning point for Europe in that year’s Ryder Cup matches. He has six European PGA victories, too, but he hadn’t triumphed in the weekly grind of the world’s top tour.

“This game kicks you more often than it gives you a pat on the back,” McDowell said. “It’s hard to win.” Not on this day for McDowell, who pushed forward on wind-blown Harbour Golf Links when his rivals were moving backward, unnerved by the 20 to 30 mph winds that rattled the course. He rallied from four strokes down when the day began to take a oneshot lead into the 72nd hole. Then after he made his only bogey of the round to fall into tie with Simpson, two-putted from about 15 feet to make a par on the extra hole that Simpson couldn’t match. “I guess the weather was what the doctor or-

dered. I needed that to get close to the leaders,” said McDowell, who earned $1,044,000 for the victory. McDowell, from Northern Ireland, had a 69, one of only three scores in the 60s among the 70 who teed off Sun-

day. Simpson, reigning U.S. Open winner, shot 71. He had a chance to win in regulation, but his 22-footer for birdie went 3 feet past and set up the additional hole. “I came in with not too much confidence, but I just

stayed true to the process of what we’ve been working on,” Simpson said. Luke Donald shot a 69 to tie for third with Kevin Streelman, who had a 72. Jerry Kelly rounded out the top five after his even-par 71.

Blue Jays rally to beat Yankees 8-4 NEIL DAVIDSON Canadian Press

TORONTO - Brett Lawrie doubled home two runs in a four-run sixth inning and J.P. Arencibia hit his seventh homer as the Toronto Blue Jays rallied with six straight runs to defeat the New York Yankees 8-4 on Sunday afternoon. The win helped To-

ronto (8-11) avert a series sweep at the hands of the Yankees (10-7). And Lawrie’s heroics with the bat helped take the sting out of being involved in an 11th-inning fielding blunder that led to a New York win Saturday. Lawr ie, a made-in-Canada bundle of energy, also shone at third base by stabbing a

hard hit ball from catcher Chris Stewart in the eighth to trigger a double play. The game was a sellout for the second straight day at the Rogers Centre, with 45,575 on hand to see the Jays show some fight - and offence. Toronto came into the game ranked 13th in the American League in hitting average (.225).

Bancks gets called up to the Flames TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Calgary Flames are turning towards their youth to allow the young blood to compete for jobs next season. The NHL club has called up seven players from their AHL affiliate in Abbotsford, one of which includes Carter Bancks, the son of Kootenay Ice assistant coach Jerry Bancks. The AHL playoffs, which will begin shortly, will not feature the Abbotsford Heat, which finished 12th in the Western Conference, missing the post-season for the second time in its four-year history in the Lower Mainland. In 59 games with the Heat this season, Bancks has tallied four goals and seven assists, and accumulated 53 penalty minutes. Bancks has been playing professional hockey for the last three full seasons with the

Heat, and has reached the end of his entry-level contract with the Flames. The Flames are already featuring some other call-ups in their current roster, such as former Kootenay Ice sniper Max Reinhart and Portland Winterhawks alum Sven Baertschi are currently auditioning for roles in the show next year. Joining Bancks with the Flames is Akim Aliu, Paul Byron, Mark Cundari, Leland Irving, Blair Jones and Ben Street. Jace Coyle, another local hockey player who has turned pro, is currently battling it out with Idaho Steelheads against the Ontario Reign in the second round of the ECHL playoffs. Coyle has been up and down with Texas Stars of the AHL this year, is—like Bancks— on the final season of his entry contract.

New Olympic offices in Montreal to be showpiece for sport STEPHANIE LE VITZ Canadian Press

OTTAWA - The Montreal headquarters of Canada’s Olympic movement is getting a major makeover. A 1,486 square metre space in the heart of the city is being turned into a centre of Canadian sport for athletes and the public, the president of the Canadian Olympic Committee says. The new facility will feature the Olympic rings on the building, a museum and a gift shop as well as administrative space, Marcel Aubut said in an interview Sunday. “It’s going to be a unique showcase for Olympics in Canada,” Aubut said. “It’s going to be lots more than the COC offices.” The building is being given to the COC rentfree, thanks to a deal between the Quebec government and the building’s current owners. Aubut says the site will open in September, after which he’ll get to work on a similar project

for the COC’s offices in Toronto. He adds he had begun negotiating with former Ontario premier Dalton McGuinty and will go back to discuss it with current Premier Kathleen Wynne in the next six months. An Olympic museum was opened by a private group in Toronto in 2004 but the $42 million facility in the heart of downtown closed two years later. Meanwhile, the COC is closing its Ottawa office, and splitting its work between Montreal and Toronto. Aubut says closing up shop in the nation’s capital, plus the rent savings in Montreal, will see $600,000 a year go back into COC coffers. Since first being elected as COC president in 2009, Aubut has sought to dramatically raise the profile of both the organization and Olympic sport in general, in part by applying much more of a private-sector approach to its operations.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH In your mind’s eye, you have a vision of what you want to do today.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Your words have impact, but perhaps they affect someone you would prefer they wouldn’t. A loved one could take a comment personally. Listen to your inner voice as to how far you can push this person. Be aware of your limits. Tonight: Meet a friend for a chat. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Recognize a tendency to go overboard.

good for you. A friend could disappoint you at the last minute. On some level, you might be feeling like you have to make a choice. Tonight: Follow the music. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Deal with a partner directly. You know a situation could radically change, no matter what you do. Creative opportunities pop up from out of the blue. Don’t try to impress a parent or higher-up. You actually are likely to fall on your face if you do. Tonight: Out and about. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Defer to others. You might feel as though you have the best idea, but taking a step back will work out well for you. Focus on what is happening within your immediate group of friends. A response to an inquiry might be too late coming in. Tonight: Follow someone else’s lead.

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: My friend “Nina” just broke up with her boyfriend of five years. We are here for her, trying to help in any way we can, even though we think she is out of her mind for doing this. One of our friends has been telling Nina lies about the guy, saying he has been talking about her behind her back. I have never heard him do this. All he has ever said is that he loves Nina and doesn’t understand why she broke things off. This friend has a reputation for being dishonest. There have been fights about this before. She has backstabbed Nina twice in the past, yet Nina always turns to her when she thinks her world is collapsing. Nina has told me that she doesn’t trust this woman, but they continue to act like sisters. I care a great deal about Nina, but at what point does a 40-year-old woman grow up? Maybe Nina needs to have her life blow up in her face so she gets a clue. Is there anything I can do? -- A Real Friend Dear Friend: Not really. Nina knows this woman lies to her, and yet she is willing to break off an otherwise good relationship over it. We think Nina does this on purpose. It provides an excuse for her to sabotage her relationships and be miserable. Either she doesn’t believe she deserves happiness or she likes creating drama. Tell Nina you care about her and want her to be happy, but she is going to have to do some work to get there. Suggest counseling, but don’t hold your breath. Dear Annie: The other day, we invited a couple out to lunch as our guests. However, my wife and I were upset when they ordered appetizers without asking us. We never order appetizers, because we watch our diets and feel the dinner provides plenty of food. Also, since we were paying for it, why would they order something we ourselves didn’t order? We kept our thoughts to ourselves but would like to know whether this was proper. -- Feeling Exploited Dear Exploited: Guests should always take their cues from the hosts. If you did not suggest appetizers, they should not have ordered them on their own. However, as hosts, you cannot insist that your guests share your food preferences in a restaurant. It would have been gracious of you to ask whether they would like to order appetizers, provided you could afford to do so. Dear Annie: I’m writing in response to “Worried Family in Illinois,” whose brother is addicted to drugs. This tugged at my heart because I’m dealing with that very problem in my own family. While it’s true that a person needs to be willing and ready before rehab will truly work, the key is giving your loved one an opportunity to get clean long enough to think clearly. There is a law in my area that most attorneys don’t even know about called Casey’s Law. It allows you to file a petition against the addicted person. If adequate proof is shown that the individual is not capable of making good decisions, the judge can rule that the person has to get help. My loved ones are doing wonderfully, and even though it will be a lifetime commitment, they now have a chance at a life. -- From One Worried Family to Another Dear Worried: Thank you. Casey’s Law is currently available only in Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana. It requires filling out a petition for involuntary treatment. Information and copies of the petition can be found at or Operation Unite ( at 1-866908-6483. Annie’s Snippet for Earth Day (credit E.B. White): I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority.

daily townsman / daily bulletin

Feeling troubled Dear Wendy: My husband is going in for an operation in May and I was wondering if the operation will be successful? Can you tell me when you see him returning to work this year? My grandfather passed away six months ago and I was wondering if he is doing okay in heaven. I loved him so much. Is he with grandma and is there anything else you can tell me about how he is doing in heaven? I have applied for several new jobs and I was wondering if you see anything transpiring from my resumes that I sent out? Feeling Troubled Dear Feeling Troubled: We feel that the operation your husband is having in May will go fine. However, we feel that he may have to have another minor surgery at the end of this year on the same area. We do see him going back to work in August of 2013. I don’t like death for the living. It makes one feel so abandoned and lonely when someone you love dies. Your grandfather was quite weak when he passed over. He had to be what I call incubated for a little while. This means his soul’s energy was weak because of the illness he had on this plane. He had to be put into a dome like structure until he could adjust to the energy on the other side. He has been out of incubation on our earth time for a few days. He has seen his wife (your grandmother) but he is mostly staying with his dad for now. He will probably be ready to talk to others on this plane in another four months; if you wish to do a channel over. For now he is resting and there are several people around him during this phase. We do not see any of the applications that you have sent out resulting in you obtaining the job you want. However, we do see you working part-time for a while in July and this temporary job may result in a full time job if you want it. Keep apply-

ASK WENDY Wendy Evano ing for the jobs you want and we see you in the winter of 2013 obtaining a job you may quite enjoy. Wendy Dear Wendy: I was wondering if you could do one of your specs on this man I am currently dating. I have my reservations about some of the things he is doing and the way he is doing them these last few months. I have been in several serious relationships in the past that did not turn out so great. I would appreciate it if you could help me. Feeling Hesitant Dear Feeling Hesitant: Thank you for the first and last name of this man you wish us to do a spec on. This is the information my guides have told me about him: He does drink a little bit too much for our liking. He does not take street drugs but he does take medicinal drugs. He does not cheat on the women he goes out with but he is a bit of a liar. This means he tells half truths about some of his past relationships he has had with women. He can be a bit of a verbal abuser because he has a moody disposition. He is a good father and cares deeply about his children. This man needs a lot of alone time because he gets quite nervous if over stimulated too much. He could have a touch of anxiety disorder. We feel he should go to his doctor or someone who knows about anxiety disorder and have a talk with them and get diagnosed properly. Hope this information has helped.

Members of the Classics Oldtimers Hockey Team donated $500 to Kids Sports Coordinator, Stu Deeks. The “Classics” consist of seniors ranging from age 60 to 78 who still love to play the game of hockey two mornings a week during the winter season. By giving $500 to Kid Sports, they hope to model a love of sports that lasts throughout life. Many seniors enjoy many different sports just for the fun of it, and remain active and healthy. Pictured above are (left to right): Stu Deeks, Gary Quakenbush, Garry Roger, Murray Knipfel, Bill Gibbon, Phil McKim, Randy Trombley and Lloyd Wilson. The Classics are in their “off season” now, but will start up again next October. If you are interested in playing, contact the Cranbrook Leisure Services for more information.

Weather was chilly, shooting was hot Br adley Woods

The Bull River Shooter’s Association held its second match of the season on Saturday, April 13. Members and guests gathered on a chilly and snowy morning at our range near Fort Steele to test their freehand rifle skills in spirited competition. We started with an open house and were pleased that some brave new souls ventured out to try our sport. We were very proud that so many members arrived early to help our visitors. The match began after lunch and the first few rounds were quite challenging. The berms backstopping the “white” targets were white with snow. Many spotters/scorekeepers had to ask the shooter if they knocked down the target! Soon we were raking the dirt between rounds to get things visible. Eventually the weather settled and the participants revelled in the opportunity to compete. Match winners are as follows: Silhouette Rifle .22cal B class — Gaby Hernandez (jr) A class — Kalvin Marsh (jr) AA class — Trudy Phillips AAA class — Kaitlynn Johnson (jr) Match Champion — Rob McKeeman Don’t think us adults don’t notice that three of the five category winners were juniors! Raw talent and hard work mean all can do well in this sport and that we can enjoy competing with anyone! We were very pleased to have six juniors shooting at this match and hope they continue to enjoy our sport. Sunday, April 14, saw a great high power match where shooters must knock down targets from 200 metres to 500 metres — freehand! Nine shooters tested their skills. 1st place — Oliver Graham (won by
