mark creek flume

City will try again Mayor says City “unlikely” to proceed with Phase II without funding assistance from feds and province of British Columbia C AROLYN GR ANT weditor@dailybulletin.ca

Another intake of funding requests from the Flood Protection Program has been announced by the provincial government and the City of Kimberley is ready and eager to re-apply for funding for the Mark Creek Flume project. Mayor, Council and staff were very disappointed to learn earlier this year that their application for funding for the $4 million plus project had been denied. The Mark Creek flume has reached the end of its useful life and is in danger of failure. The first third of the project — from the east end of the flume to just before BJ’s Restaurant on Wallinger — has been completed. The first third included the somewhat controversial removal of the St. Mary Avenue bridge, which will be replaced with a footbridge.

In celebration of Earth Day 2013, the students of the Kimberley Independent School were out picking up litter around the community. Students collected litter from popular public sites around Kimberley, including the Rails to Trails, Rotary Park, Overwaitea parking area and surrounding area, and the Civic Center. Don’t forget it’s PItch In Week in Kimberley. You can get garbage bags and more at City Hall if there’s an area of town you’d like to help clean up.

the branding process

Kimberley’s story continues to unfold C AROLYN GR ANT editor@dailybulletin.ca

Kimberley City Council has renewed its contract with Story & Co. to complete the third and final phase of their branding project, website redesign. Last fall, the City of Kimberley contracted with local, award-winning firm Story & Co. to tell Kimberley’s story and come up with a consistent message upon which to base marketing. The process began with community en-

gagement and gathering feedback on just what Kimberley residents and visitors perceived Kimberley’s story to be. Since January Story & Co. has been meeting with the City’s economic development staff as they finetuned the brand. “This is the key phase on the roll out of the brand,” said the City’s Director of Economic Development, Kevin Wilson. “The City’s website is becoming the most important way to communicate. It’s important that

the website reflect the brand vision. The goal is to compel people to action, to create emotion.” Wilson said the website will be ready before the brand roll out, because as soon as the brand is released it’s important to direct people somewhere. Mayor and Council had high praise for City staff involved in the process, saying they felt fully informed as it went along. “I’m looking forward to this project be-

coming visible,” said Coun. Darryl Oakley. “And it has stayed on budget.” “Story & Co. has been dead accurate on the estimates they gave us,” said Coun. Don McCormick. “This is the natural next step. To not do this website renewal now would leave us two thirds of the way through the project.” The final portion of the contract is worth $24,150 including taxes.

To celebrate B.C. Arts and Culture Week, Cranbrook and District Arts Council is holding an artists’ reception for the Art Group 75 exhibit. On show until May 2, Art Group 75 is a group of seniors who get together to share a passion for painting. “Art Group 75 is a seniors’ painting group that exhibits with us annually,” said Linda Holmes, president of the arts council. “This reception will recognize both their value in the artistic community and also celebrate arts and culture week. “We thank ArtsBC and the province of British Columbia for their support for this event.” This week, communities across B.C. are putting the spotlight on the contribution arts and culture make to learning and life. “Arts and Cultural Week is an opportunity to showcase a unique Cranbrook art group and celebrate their achievements. As Cranbrook has a large population of retirees, it is important to include them in this week’s celebration and show that there is a vibrancy to this sector, and to showcase how they live their lives and pursue fun and dreams,” said Holmes. An opening reception for Art Group 75 will be held Thursday, April 25 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at arts council HQ, #104, 135 – 10th Avenue South, Cranbrook.

Cranbrook man recalls dramatic week in Boston

Dave Butler visited the U.S. city during the weeklong hunt for the bombers who killed three and injured hundreds at the Boston marathon Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

A Cranbrook businessman has just returned from a visit to Boston during one of the city’s most tumultuous weeks. Dave Butler, who was visiting on business for Canadian Mountain Holidays, arrived in Boston last Tuesday, April 16, one day after two bombs exploded at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three and wounding more than 250 people. He left Boston on Saturday, April 20, a day after the second of two suspects in the bomb-

ings was taken into custody by law enforcement. It was Dave’s first visit to Boston, and he stayed in two hotels, one just two blocks from the site of the explosions, and another further from downtown Boston but closer to Watertown, where bombing suspects Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were tracked down by police. “It was very spooky to be there shortly after it happened and to see the range of emotions of the people,” Dave says. “It was a heck of an introduction to the town.” When Dave arrived in Boston Tuesday, he checked into a Four Seasons hotel just two blocks from the site of the bombings. “At that point, the city was still in mourning around the losses of the bombing,” Dave says. From outside his hotel he could see a makeshift memorial set up to the victims and behind it, Boylston Street was cordoned off. “Looking down that

This is one of those awesome movies that reveals our collective insanity while spotlighting how we manage to be creative, inspired and beautiful in our humanity.

was still water bottles on the street, there was still metal fencing lying around, papers, it was all still there, you could see them clear as day. Then up on the buildings on the side of the street were men in white suits still doing the investigative work,” Dave recalls. Bostonians Dave encountered were tense,

but there was already a strong sense of camaraderie, he goes on. “Almost everybody I would talk to who was a local would say at the end of your conversation, when you bought a coffee, when you went into a restaurant, people would say, ‘Stay safe.’ I heard that over and over again, and I think it just happened organically.

“Through the week, as things progressed, the level of tension built because they still didn’t know who these guys were or where they were. Everybody was in hyper sensitivity mode. You could see people looking each other in the eye and being more aware of what was going on around them.” See Page 4

A dramatic week in Boston From Page 3 By Thursday afternoon, Dave was staying at a different hotel further from downtown Boston, but closer to Watertown. The FBI released photos and surveillance footage of two unknown suspects. “Things happened very quickly thereafter; things got very tense in a hurry because then they knew who they were, they knew they were in the Watertown, Cambridge area, which was just north of where we were,” Dave says. Outside his hotel was a constant parade of police vehicles and media trucks bearing satellite dishes. On Thursday night, the Tsarnaev brothers engaged police in a shootout in a Boston neighbourhood. The older brother, Tamerlan, 26, was killed,

while Dzhokar, 19, escaped. That led to a day-long manhunt Friday, and everyone in the city was advised to stay indoors if possible. On Friday morning, Dave left the hotel for meetings outside Boston. He felt safe doing so because he was headed away from the action in Watertown. “Literally, we were the only traffic on the road. It was very strange – a major U.S. city that was just a ghost town,” Dave says. He returned to Boston that evening via taxi, and still the streets were deserted. “It was 6 o’clock on Friday night, probably the busiest night of the weekend in Boston, so every bar and restaurant and the streets should have just been packed with people. There was no-

body – nobody – on the streets,” Dave recalls. Soon after, the lockdown ended and people slowly began to trickle back onto the streets. Dave went to dinner and while he was there, police took Dzhokar Tsarnaev into custody from his hiding place in a boat in a Watertown backyard. “During the meal, there were people in the restaurant who were watching things happen on social media on smartphones. In the restaurant, we heard this palpable buzz and people saying, ‘Oh, they got the guy.’ We heard that repeatedly. “By the time we walked out on the street it was clear the lockdown was over because there were lots more people out on the street than there had been two hours earlier.” Between Friday evening and Saturday morning when Dave left Boston to return to Cranbrook, the mood in Boston

Notice of Roll Review Panel for the Purpose of Correcting the Residential Flat Rate Tax Roll

City of Kimberley

PUBLIC NOTICE

As in past years the City of Kimberley will be levying a flat tax on residential properties in 2013. A Notice will be mailed to each residential property owner with a change in their flat tax status specifying the class of the property as either: Sub Class A: Property with improvements; (buildings, including manufactured homes); Sub Class B: Vacant Property If you have a query regarding the flat tax roll status of your property the Residential Flat Rate Tax roll will be available at City Hall. A Roll Review Panel will sit on Thursday, May 2, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. in the Council Chambers, City Hall, 340 Spokane Street, Kimberley, B.C. for the purpose of correcting the RESIDENTIAL FLAT RATE TAX ROLL IF: (a) (i) the name of the owner of a parcel of real property is not correct; (ii) a parcel of real property is not residential property or, (iii) a parcel of real property is not correctly identified as either Sub-class A or Sub-class B as indicated above, and A complaint shall not be heard by the Roll Review Panel unless written notice of it has been made to the office of the Collector, 340 Spokane Street, Kimberley, BC V1A 2E8, by Tuesday, April 30, 2013 at 4:45 p.m. Holly Ronnquist, CMA Collector

changed significantly. “Whenever they saw a police officer – and there were still lots around – people would be going up to them and saying, ‘Hey, thanks, guys.’ Over and over again, I saw that countless times, people would say thanks to them.” While it may not have been the best time to visit Boston, Dave says he came away with positive impressions of the city’s residents. “Everywhere there were signs that said ‘Boston Strong’. People just rallied around and said, ‘These guys are not going to knock us down.’ I would think that if anything the city is going to be stronger and more vibrant and more together as a result of this thing than they were before. “I’d love to go back because it’s a wonderful city. People are super friendly, there is wonderful history, it’s a super walkable city. I loved it, I would go back in a heartbeat,” Dave remembers.

SPECIFIED AREA TAX ROLLS The City of Kimberley is updating the specified area tax rolls for the following service areas: Surfaced Parking Platzl Revitalization Owners of property located in these specified areas may request that the roll be amended, in relation to their own property, on one or more of the following grounds:

Alan Shore brings his play “A Chosen Vessel” to Kimberley, Sunday.

Fellowship Baptist presents “A Chosen Vessel” For the Bulletin

Kimberley Fellowship Baptist Church will present the play “A Chosen Vessel” this Sunday, April 28, 2013 at the church (395 Marsden Street) at 7 p.m. The play is billed as an enjoyable and challenging one-man dramatic presentation of the life of Paul. Presented by Alan Shore from Chosen People Ministries, this play is set in the dungeon where Paul is awaiting execution and is a recollec-

tion of his life and ministry that is faithful to Scripture. Although Paul emerges as one whose accomplishments and gifts made him larger than life, he’s also revealed as someone with both humour and humanity. You’ll not only come to know Paul as a Christian, but also as a Jew, as you enter into the deep feelings and high hopes he had for his own people. The 45 minute presentation will be followed by time for questions and discussion with Alan. A retiring offering will be taken.

PUBLIC NOTICE AQUATIC CENTRE PARCEL TAX ROLL The City of Kimberley is updating the Aquatic Centre Parcel Tax Roll. A person may make a complaint to the Aquatic Parcel Tax Roll Review Panel on one or more of the following grounds: • There is an error or omission respecting a name or address on the parcel tax roll; • There is an error or omission respecting the inclusion of the parcel; • An exemption has been improperly allowed or disallowed. The Aquatic Centre Parcel Tax Roll is available for inspection at Kimberley City Hall during regular office hours. Request for Aquatic Centre Parcel Tax roll amendments must be made in writing to the City of Kimberley, 340 Spokane Street, Kimberley, BC V1A 2E8, before Tuesday, April 30, 2013 at 4:45 p.m. If complaints are received, the Aquatic Parcel Tax Review Panel will meet at 10:10 a.m. on Thursday, May 2, 2013 in Council Chambers. Holly Ronnquist, CMA Collector

Mayor Ron McRae says Council doesn’t believe it would be prudent to proceed without assistance. “The second phase will more than likely have to wait for a funding announcement,” McRae said. “We don’t believe it’s prudent to proceed until funding is secured.” McRae said it’s a matter of everyone — the feds, province and the municipality — paying their fair share. The City’s application will be ready to go out this Friday and Chief Financial Officer Holly Ronnquist says this is only the first round in the intake, more of a questionnaire on the project than an application itself. If the project passes the first phase, a more detailed application follows. She said the City should hear by the end of June or beginning of July on whether or not it has been successful on the first round.

Dogs, poodles and oodles of doodles

W

e never had a poodle; frankly, I don’t like them. The first dog ever willing to live with us longer than necessary to devour everything in the fridge was a German Short-hair Pointer or Retriever or Something. We called her Hexa, not that she ever actually listened to any one of us when we called her. Hexa hated cold, especially cold water, but she managed several times during her life-span to almost drown herself plus several innocent people, like our exfriends, who endeavoured to save her. Hexa not only fell into raging creeks but scared the life out of us when she slipped a through a cornice several thousand feet above the valley floor. I recall laughing for a moment at her predicament as she hung there, her back legs scrabbling in thin air, then I had to risk life and limb to retrieve her. You see, because she was a shorthaired mutt, she was always cold and so she couldn’t just lie down like any ordinary dog. No, she had to pace about and thus got into trouble. She wasn’t all that bright either; we have a photograph somewhere of her pointing at a grouse with her stubby tail. But she was no poodle and our friend Roger adored her and so went off and pur-

chased a dog for himself, but not a German Short-of-Brains Pointer. I like the larger breeds of dogs but, as I said earlier, I am not very fond of poodles. You see, one time, in Calgary, I volunteered to take a lady friend’s poodle for a walk. This nearly caused my demise, for that poodle, like all of them, I suspect, was fiendishly clever. He amused me at first by leaning against telephone Peter poles, cocking a leg and Warland peeing outward. This was a novel concept for dogs except that the animals are supposed to pee on the upright and thus mark their territory as well as stink up the place at the same time. I suspect that poodles are mean creatures because people insist on making them look so stupid and un-doglike by messing about with their tails and by putting bows on them, so I am convinced that that poodle was doing the weird pee job just to lull me into a false sense of security whilst preparing to trap me with his leash. Every so often, when I was relaxed, he’d wrap that leash around my legs and dump me on to very hard Calgary sidewalks. I staggered back from that walk bleeding and bruised all over, learning to hate poodles. But it doesn’t matter now as most poo-

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

dles have turned into doodles. They’ve been cross-bred with sensible dogs so that a person can find himself face to face with Labradoodles, Chihuahuadhoodles and Great Dane doodles. I once encountered something that looked like a cross between a poodle and an Akita and I was willing to bet that that doodle cost a fortune every week at a doggie beauty parlour. Our last dog was named Led Zeppelin and we adopted him from the younger generation that had given him such a bizarre name. That German Shepherd opted to live with us oldies and we called him Zep; he never told us how to spell it. Zep had been around. Everyone in town seemed to know him. Why, not long after he’d come to live with us, we were walking on Premier Ridge, up there near Wasa, and he was scouting for bears when we heard a voice say, “Hey, Zep!” The greeter, obvious well acquainted with our dog didn’t know us from Adam, or Eve. Which just goes to show, right? To my knowledge, Zep never fell into a raging torrent or through corniches. I don’t think he bothered pointing at grouse but he adored running after bears while we looked for suitable trees for us to climb. Then, when our panic subsided, he’d come trotting back smiling with the fun of being with us, not at all like a puffed up poodle with silly bows in his hair.

Bancks makes NHL debut against Predators TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Two days after getting called up from the AHL, Marysville product Carter Bancks will made his NHL debut with the Calgary Flames in Nashville against the Predators on Tuesday night. Bancks, 23, has been playing with the Abbotsford Heat of the AHL for the last three seasons, but Calgary’s farm squad has played out their year and missed the post season. “I’m really excited. A little nervous for sure, but a lot of excitement,” said Bancks, in an pregame interview with FlamesTV. “It’s been a journey to get

here and I’m just going to try to embrace it and have as much fun as I can tonight.” Bancks, along with six other Heat teammates, were called up on April 21st, as the Flames have been looking at some of their younger players and prospects in preparation for next season because the club is outside of the NHL playoff picture. Bancks joins former Kootenay Ice sniper Max Reinhart, who has been with the team for the last three weeks and is making an impression with a goal and two assists in nine games. “Obviously, getting the chance to play at

this level is what every little boy dreams of, and getting to watch it on TV growing up, you see how fast it is, how strong it is—it’s just going to be a really good test,” added Bancks. “I’ve worked a long time for this and I just want to go out there and give it my best, I guess. It’s going to be fun.” Prior to his professional career, Bancks played four seasons in the WHL with the Lethbridge Hurricanes, but began his junior hockey career with the Kimberley Dynamiters of the KIJHL. Hockey runs in his blood as his father, Jerry Bancks, is an assistant coach with the

McDavid’s hat trick leads Canada 6-0 over Swedes C ANADIAN PRESS

SOCHI, Russia Connor McDavid scored three power-play goals and Canada clinched first place in its group with a 6-0 rout of Sweden on Tuesday at the world under-18 hockey championship. McDavid opened the scoring 1:17 into the game, and sealed the victory with a pair of goals in the third period. The 16-year-old Erie

Otters forward, who added an assist, has 11 points in four games at the tournament. Zach Nastasiuk, Morgan Klimchuk and Nick Ritchie scored in the second period as Canada pulled away from the Swedes. Philippe Desrosiers made 28 saves for the shutout. Despite the lopsided score, Canadian assistant coach Jody Hull

said he didn’t feel his team was in control until late in the second period. Canada took three straight minor penalties after McDavid’s game-opening goal, allowing Sweden to build momentum. “We had some real good momentum early before we ran into penalty problems,” Hull said. “We got back and started doing what we need to do to win

games.” Canada finished first in Group B with a 4-0 record, outscoring its opponents 23-3. The Canadians will play the Czech Republic, which finished fourth in Group A, in Thursday’s quarter-finals. Sweden will face the United States on Thursday. The Americans who finished third in Group A, are looking for a fifth straight gold

medal at the event. Hull said while Canada would love a crack at the Americans, his team is prepared to face any opponent in the medal round. “The Canada-U.S. rivalry is at a high in both men’s and women’s game right now,” Hull said. “If we get to the final and we play the Americans, great. If it’s another team, we’ll be prepared for them.”

Big 4th quarter lifts Heat 98-86 over Bucks TIM REYNOLDS Associated Press

MIAMI - Everyone in the Miami huddle was bracing for a grind to the finish. On the other end, the sense around the Milwaukee bench was that an upset was there for the taking. Then the Heat landed a swift knockout punch. Dwyane Wade scored 21 points, LeBron James finished with 19 and the Heat used a frantic start to the fourth quarter to pull away and beat the Bucks 98-86 in Game 2 of the teams’ Eastern Conference first-round series on Tuesday night. It was 68-65 entering the fourth. With James and four backups on the court, the Heat needed only 2 minutes, 22 seconds to outscore Milwaukee 12-0 and stretch the lead to 80-65 - ensuring the reigning NBA

champions would take a 2-0 series lead into Game 3 on Thursday night. “We held court,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “We protected it for two games. We did what we’re supposed to do. And that’s it.” Chris Bosh, Shane Battier and Chris Andersen all scored 10 points for the Heat. James’ post-season streaks of 22 straight games with at least 20 points, and 16 straight games of at least 25 points, both came to an end. Ultimately, none of that mattered. “We didn’t get into our game like we wanted to in that third quarter,” James said. “But we went into the fourth with a (three-point) lead and we were able to jump on them.” Ersan Ilyasova scored

21 points for Milwaukee, which got 16 from Mike Dunleavy and 14 from Larry Sanders. The Bucks’ starting guards, Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis, combined for only 15 points - after teaming up to score 48 in Game 1. “It’s a series,” said Sanders, who had a sore right ankle after he collided with Battier in the fourth quarter. “We made progress this game.”

They’ll need to make more, and do it quickly. James has never lost in 10 previous series where his team takes a 2-0 lead, and Wade is 8-0 in that same situation. “In the playoffs you’ve got to find different ways to win,” Wade said. “No matter what everybody says on the outside, (Milwaukee) is a good team. They played us very well.” For about 46 minutes, the Bucks played them

even. It was that 12-0 run that was the difference in what finished as a 12point game. Andersen started it with a three-point play, James had a layup not long afterward and the Heat were starting to roll. Another basket by Andersen off a pass from Ray Allen made it 77-65, and James found Norris Cole for a 3-pointer that capped the flurry and made it 80-65.

Charlotte Bobcats fire head coach Mike Dunlap ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHARLOTTE, N.C. The Charlotte Bobcats say they’ve fired coach Mike Dunlap after just one season. The Bobcats went 21-61 under Dunlap, finishing with the second-worst record in the

NBA ahead of only the Orlando Magic. Charlotte won just seven games in the strike-shortened 2011-12 season but more wins weren’t enough to save Dunlap’s job. Dunlap was hired last summer after working as

an assistant coach at St. John’s. The move means the Bobcats will have a third head coach in as many seasons as owner Michael Jordan continues to look for what he feels is the right person for the job.

SPORTS BRIEFS Blue Bombers report loss, blame costly delays for building new stadium

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers announced that the team posted a $758,307 loss last year, blaming costly delays in building their new home for the disappointing economic performance. The club released its 2012 financial report Tuesday and said while the team had an overall operating profit of $726,930, “exceptional” costs for the development of Investors Group Field and a loss from the write-down of Canad Inns Stadium turned the team’s bottom line from black to red. The Bombers were supposed to play in their new $200-million facility at the University of Manitoba campus last year, but weather delays hindered construction and forced the team to continue using Canad Inns. Investors Group Field is expected to be ready this season, with a practice run taking place on May 26 for a multi-denominational prayer event. A Bombers exhibition game is scheduled for June 12 against Toronto and a sold-out Taylor Swift concert is slated for June 22. The loss was a sharp turnabout from the 2011 financial report, which saw the Bombers take in $3.01 million in net earnings from operations and an overall net profit of $2.3 million after stadium development costs.

Paul George wins NBA’s Most Improved Award after breakout season

INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana forward Paul George has been honoured as the NBA’s Most Improved Player. Tuesday’s announcement comes less than a week after the 6-foot-9 forward finished his breakthrough regular season and less than 48 hours after he became only the second player in franchise history to record a triple double in the NBA playoffs. He had 23 points, 11 rebounds and 12 assists in the Pacers’ 107-90 Game 1 win over Atlanta - giving the Pacers their first 1-0 series lead since 2006. Game 2 is Wednesday night in Indy. George averaged 17.4 points and 7.6 rebounds this season, both career highs. He averaged 12.1 points and 5.6 rebounds in 2011-12. He’s the fourth player in franchise history to win the award, joining Jalen Rose, Jermaine O’Neal and Danny Granger. Associated Press

Bayern humbles Barcelona 4-0 in first leg of Champions League semifinal

MUNICH, Germany - Thomas Mueller scored two goals as Bayern Munich dominated Barcelona on Tuesday to take a commanding 4-0 lead after the first leg of their highly anticipated Champions League semifinal. Mueller scored in the first half and added another after Mario Gomez and Arjen Robben had also scored in the second half. While Barcelona turned around a 2-0 deficit against AC Milan with a 4-0 win at home, this Bayern team looks highly unlikely to allow a similar comeback in the second leg next week in Spain. Lionel Messi started for Barcelona despite injury worries but looked far from his best and was hardly a factor in the match. Barcelona had few chances, while Bayern used its size to outmuscle the Spanish side on set pieces. Associated Press

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You could be juggling a bit more than you want to. Honor your priorities, and eliminate anything that is insignificant and/or futile. You could find this process to be difficult, as it is not easy for you to admit that your efforts fall short. Tonight: Go along with a suggestion. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You pull the wild card financially. You are more likely to encounter extremes, so remain focused when dealing with money. You will be a lot happier as a result. Don’t take risks before seeking out other opinions. Tonight: Get to the gym or take a walk. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Your creativity emerges when dealing with a loved one. A solution emerges, no matter what you have to deal with or what choices you have to make. Push comes to shove in a difficult situation. You feel better than you have in a long time. Tonight: Have fun!

CANCER (June 21-July 22) You come from an anchored point of view. Sometimes others see you as a stick in the mud when it comes to taking risks. You will have one opportunity to jump on an offer. Be sure of yourself when taking this gamble. Tonight: Have a discussion with a family member. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Listen to news with focus and determination. Though everything might seem fine, you could become aware of someone’s suppressed anger. Try to address this issue, but understand that this person might not be cognizant of his or her deeper feelings. Tonight: Visit with friends.

Others simply can’t stay away. Tonight: Go with the flow. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Know that something is going on within you.

Tonight: Get some extra zzz’s while you can! SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) A meeting provides direction as well as feedback. You’ll see someone’s anger, perhaps for the first time. A change in how you discuss certain personal matters might be appropriate. Your caring means a lot to someone in your daily life. Tonight: Where the action is. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You are changing -- and quickly, at that. Your belief that you gain

as a result of resolving a problem is worth exploring. You are capable of enormous growth and change. Consider your options more openly. Tonight: Burn the candle at both ends. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Keep reaching out to someone at a distance whom you genuinely care about. The unexpected often occurs. You’ll need to pull back and rethink a personal matter. Be careful when dealing with mechanical equipment. Use care with spending. Tonight: Return calls. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Take news with a grain of salt. You might not understand everything that is happening around you, but you have a theory about the different elements involved. Unfortunately, you could have your rose-colored shades on. Tonight: Dinner with a favorite person. BORN TODAY Actress Barbra Streisand (1942), actress Shirley MacLaine (1934), singer Kelly Clarkson (1982) ***

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: When I was 11 years old, I made an insulting remark to one of my older sister’s teenage friends, teasing her about her acne. The next day, my mother loudly confronted me about it, and my grandmother and sister joined in. For the next several months, if I said anything my mother didn’t like, she’d angrily remind me of the horrible thing I’d done. For years after, she’d allude to it. This continued until I was close to 30. Last year, my mother told me this same girl had been working as a waitress after dropping out of college, and that my comments about her acne had ruined her self-esteem. At that point, I tracked her down and asked her whether she was still upset with me over the incident all those years ago. She said she didn’t remember it at all. She said her lifestyle choices were the result of her rebelling against her domineering parents and had nothing to do with me. During a recent car trip with my parents, my mother brought this up again. I loudly said, “That was 24 years ago, and I’m tired of hearing about it. If you don’t stop, I will leave.” My mother told me to “go,” and I had my father pull over, and I took my bag and walked back home. I haven’t spoken to my parents in six months, and I don’t miss them. Really, Annie, when can a 35-year-old man expect forgiveness for something he did when he was 11? I may have been a rude kid, but I had a mother who called me “fat” and “pudgy.” I guess I learned it from her. Is my mother crazy, or do I have to do some penance? -- New Yorker Dear New Yorker: Your mother seems vindictive and obsessive. You have acknowledged your rudeness toward this young woman and, we assume, apologized to her at some point. But when a child is 11, a parent should use such incidents to teach kindness. Your mother used it as an excuse to hold something over your head for eternity. You are right not to tolerate such comments any longer. Dear Annie: I am appalled by the way people dress. We dress so casually that women do not take pride in being women, and men are losing their dignity. I believe in equality, but do women have to dress like men? And everyone wears jeans with everything. We look sloppy. People from other countries must wonder why we don’t take more care with our outward appearance. After all, it reflects a healthy mind, body and spirit, and shows we care about our American image. Can anything be done about it? -- Conscientious Observer Dear Observer: Probably not. People like to be comfortable, which can lead to being sloppy and gender-neutral. Others like to show off their bodies, which can lead to overexposure. Fashions come and go. All you can do is hold out hope for a more formal future. Dear Annie: To all outward appearances, I am hale and hearty, regardless of what is going on inside my body that requires the use of a handicapped parking space. Recently, one sour-faced woman commented that I “do not look handicapped.” Usually, I ignore such boors, but it was taking a lot of effort to walk tall and smile that day. I remarked that it was an exceptionally good day for me, and I hoped she would put her X-ray vision to good use for the betterment of medical science. And I kept right on walking. -- Encino, Calif. Dear Encino: That was a kinder response than most. Thanks. Dear Readers: Today is Administrative Professionals Day. If you have assistants who make your job easier, please let them know how much they are appreciated.

Renate Herta Brigl Sept. 13, 1942 April 18, 2013 Renate Herta Brigl, 70, passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family, on April 18 in Cranbrook, B.C. at Joseph Creek Village. She was born on September 13, 1942 in Berlin, Germany, to Reinhold and Luise Hundt. Renate spent her early childhood in Berlin. After the death of her father, she returned with her mother and brother Hans to her mother’s hometown of Selb. Growing up in this porcelain capital of Germany, Renate gained an early appreciation for fine things. With her journeyman’s ticket in hairdressing in hand, she moved to Munich in her early twenties to seek adventure. There, while taking a ski course, she met her future husband, Albert. After their marriage in 1968, they had two children, Gundula and Ursula. Looking for clean air, sunshine, wide-open spaces and the fulfillment of a long-time dream, the family moved overseas to settle in Cranbrook in 1979. They built their home in Gold Creek and took much pleasure in the ever-changing view of the mountains. A third daughter, Sonja, was born in Canada. Renate loved to be outside, and worked hard to build a beautiful garden to surround their new house. Here she created, by instinct, a garden of many colours and large size, which was widely admired. During the many summers the family spent at their cabin on Kootenay Lake near Riondel, Renate devoted all her energies to tending the forest, beach and cabin to create an idyllic retreat that the family enjoys to this day. Along with running the household, she started a hairdressing salon, Charming Lady Beauty Salon. She became close friends with many of her clients and always enjoyed bumping into people she knew in town and catching up on the latest news. Wherever she was, Renate or Mama as she was known to family and friends, created an atmosphere of warmth, welcome and beauty. She loved to see the world, even sailing as part of the crew on a yacht from Africa to South America on a 2 month journey when she was 65. After her first visit in 1998, part of her heart belonged to Hawaii, with its tropical plants and white sandy beaches and many memories of the family together. Always enthusiastic and bubbling over with life, Mama was the driving force behind family activities. Whether hiking, gardening, travelling, or just doing daily activities there was never a dull moment in her presence. But she also enjoyed quiet times at home as a voracious reader and a great lover of dogs. Above all Mama loved her family, to whom she devoted her life. In 2011 she was overjoyed to welcome her granddaughter, Isabel Vogel (born to Sonja and her husband Paul Vogel), to the world. Passionate, enthusiastic, loving, genuine, and warm, no one who met her ever forgot her. A service will be held on Friday, April 26 at 2pm at McPherson’s Funeral Home, 2200 2nd St. S. A reception will follow at the Brigl residence, 3220 49th St. S. In lieu of flowers, a memorial donation may be made to the Cranbrook SPCA, PO Box 2, Cranbrook, B.C. V1C 4H6.

Obituaries JOHNSON, Margaret “Anne”

On April 17, 2013, Anne Johnson ended her final journey in Kelowna in her 90th year. Anne was predeceased by her husband Don in 1984.  She will be dearly missed by daughters Ellie (son Cody), Sharon (daughters Carrie and Lindsey), Carol (sons Jason and Jeff), son Gordon, along with 5 great grandchildren.  Anne was a long standing member of the CWL for 68 years.  Anne and Don were nominated “Family of the Year” in 1982 by the Knights of Columbus in Cranbrook, BC.  In lieu of flowers, donations in Anne’s memory may be made to the Parkinson’s Society of BC, 600 – 890 West Pender St., Vancouver, BC V6C 1J9, or the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, 4480 Oak Street, Vancouver, BC  V6H 3V4.  Prayers will be held at 7:00pm on Friday April 26, 2013, with a Funeral Mass to follow at 10:00am on Saturday April 27, 2013, both at Christ the Servant Catholic Parish, 1100 14th Avenue South, Cranbrook BC.  Interment will be at Westlawn Cemetery where Anne will be laid to rest with Don.  Arrangements have been made by Springfield Funeral Home, Kelowna BC and McPherson’s Funeral Services, Cranbrook BC.  Condolences may be sent to the family by visitingwww. springfieldfuneralhome.com, 250-860-7077.

France legalizes same-sex marriage after debate that triggered huge protests Lori Hinnant And Sylvie Corbet Associated Press

PARIS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; France legalized gay marriage on Tuesday after a wrenching national debate that has exposed deep conservatism in the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heartland and triggered huge protests that tapped into deep discontent with the Socialist government. Legions of officers with water cannon braced outside the National Assembly for violence that had not come by late evening. The protests against the measure included thousands but were peaceful. Other gatherings were simply celebrations. The measure passed easily in the Socialist-majority Assembly, 331-225, just minutes after the president of the legislative body expelled a disruptive protester in pink, the colour adopted by French opponents of gay marriage. Justice Minister Christiane Taubira told lawmakers that the first weddings could be as soon as June. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We believe that the first weddings will be beautiful and that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll bring a breeze of joy, and that those who are opposed to them today will surely be confounded when they are overcome with the happiness of the newlyweds and the families,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; she said. In recent weeks, violent attacks against gay couples have spiked and some legislators have received threats â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including Claude Bartelone, the Assembly president, who got a gunpowder-filled envelope on Monday. One of the biggest protests against same-sex marriage drew together hundreds of thousands of people bused in from the French provinces â&#x20AC;&#x201D; conservative activists, schoolchildren with their parents, retirees, priests and others. That demonstration ended in blasts of tear gas, as

right-wing rabble-rousers, some in masks, led the charge against police, damaging cars and making a break for the presidential palace. French conservatives, decimated by infighting and the election loss of standard-bearer Nicolas Sarkozy, found common cause in opposing same-sex marriage. Hoping to keep the issue alive, the conservative UMP party planned to challenge the law in the constitutional Council. French civil unions, allowed since 1999, are at least as popular among heterosexuals as among gay and lesbian couples. But that law has no provisions for adoption, and the strongest opposition in France as far as samesex couples goes comes when children are involved. According to recent polls, just over half of French are opposed to adoption by same-sex couples â&#x20AC;&#x201D; about the same number who said they favoured same-sex marriage. Christophe Crepin, spokesman for the police union UNSA, says the extraordinary security Tuesday included a total of about 4,000 officers in the area near the National Assembly building and water cannon positioned nearby. One group of anti-riot police swarmed the banks of the Seine River about a quarter-mile from the legislature, hours before protests were scheduled there. France is the 14th country to legalize gay marriage nationwide â&#x20AC;&#x201D;and the most populous. In New Zealand, where gay marriage enjoys popular support, people gathered outside Parliament and joined in singing a traditional Maori love ballad after a vote last week making it legal. Nine states and the District of Columbia in the U.S. also recognize such marriages, but the federal government does not.
