City of Kimberley releases 2013 Financial Plan Residential taxes to rise four per cent; business three per cent C AROLYN GR ANT editor@dailybulletin.ca

The numbers have been crunched, scanned and crunched again and on Wednesday, the City’s Chief Financial Officer Holly Ronnquist made the 2013 Financial Plan available on the City’s website. In the past the financial plan was first presented at an open house but given poor attendance in the past several years, Council decided to

Step #1: Call Karrie and get your access code number. 250-426-5201 extension 208

release the documents online. The plan will be before Council next Monday, May 6 for the first three readings, with adoption following the week after. The number most taxpayers are looking for is what kind of property tax increases are on the horizon. For homeowners the answer is four per cent, with business taxes rising three per cent and light industrial three per cent as well, which brings light industrial into a one to one ration with residential taxes. Business taxes are 2.38 to 1 in 2013, a drop from last year’s ratio. There is no change in the flat tax

which remains at $736 for improved residential properties. There is also no change in the Aquatic Centre flat tax, which remains at $150 per parcel. There will be no increase in utility rates, but garbage rates are under review as there has been no change since 2000. The impact of the four per cent increase on an average priced home (average being $228,683) is $73. That brings the yearly cost of an average home, including millrate tax, frontage tax, parcel tax, flat tax and utility charges to $3,329, which

puts Kimberley just a bit above Cranbrook ($3,240). Property taxes account for $8,724,190 of the $26,489,880 in total revenue for the City in 2013. In terms of challenges for municipal funding, there are some new directions that will impact future City spending including Climate Change, GHG Reduction, Affordable Housing, Accessibility for Persons With Disabilities, Sustainable Communities, Forest Management and Wildlife Management. In addition, policing costs, already over nine per cent of the City’s operating budget are expected to

rise 28 per cent by 2017. The City has $9.22 million in capital expenditure planned for 2013. The list includes the Flume (dependant on obtaining grants), the Sunmine project, Blackbear bridge replacement, a grader and dump truck, Morrison Sub culvert/ Waldie Rd repair/paving, Marysville ice plant upgrade (to be determined), Aquatic Centre UV water treatmen, Paving/repairs to Gerry Sorenson Way, Rotary Drive, Knighton Road, Levirs Ave, Electronic Council (hardware/software) and ongoing waterline and sewer work.

Spring burn season comes to an end Submit ted

Weather, safety and smoke are always factors when it comes to pulling off prescribed burns in the Trench. The Rocky Mountain Trench Ecosystem Restoration Program (Trench ER) had planned four burns this April in the narrow window between dry out and green up, and was able to conduct two burns. Trench ER burns enhance wildlife habitat by restoring grasslands and open forests — they are planned and executed by Ministry of Forest, Lands and Natural Resource Operations staff, under the guidance of the Trench ER program partnership. “Only two of the prescribed burns were ignited this month,” said Randy Harris, ER team leader. “Both looked good and we’ll be doing follow-up assessments to ascertain the degree of success.” The two burn locations were: • The old Kimberley Airport, off Miller Road,

Local crews from the B.C. Wildfire Management Branch Southeast

Fire Centre conducted the burns using plans prepared to achieve specific objectives for each fire. “Personnel were given valuable training in the classroom and during operations that will pay large dividends in the end when these tactics are utilized on wildfires,” said burn boss Mike Morrow of the fire centre. Ecosystem resto-

ration projects have been ongoing on these sites for several years. “Previous thinning treatments have reduced forest stands to where low-intensity, controlled burns can be introduced,” Harris said. “The burns improve grazing for elk and cattle, enhance habitat for badgers and other wildlife, and restore open forest and grassland ecosystems, which are

vital to the overall health of the Rocky Mountain Trench.” Funding for this season’s prescribed burns is provided by the B.C. Government’s Land Based Investment program and the Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation. Visit www.trench-er. com to learn about ecosystem restoration in the Trench.

Chamber hosts all candidates forum Part one C AROLYN GR ANT editor@dailybulletin.ca

A rather sparse crowd attended the All Candidates Forum hosted by the Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday evening. But those who did attend heard a wide-ranging discussion on the issues facing British Columbians, and perhaps gave undecided voters a nudge in one direction or the other. There were only three candidates at the forum, though four are running in Columbia River Revelstoke. Green Party candidate Laurel Ralston was unable to attend, though a statement was read on her behalf. The other candidates, Doug Clovechok, BC Liberals, Earl Olsen, Conservative Party, and Norm Macdonald, NDP, gave a brief introduction, then fielded questions. Some were Kimberley-specific, such as support for the flume project. Olsen admitted he wasn’t that familiar with the project but anything to do with improving a community,

Ready, set, debate. Doug Clovechok, BC Liberals, Earl Olsen, Conservative Party, and Norm Macdonald, NDP, just prior to discussing the issues at McKim Theatre Tuesday night. especially for health and safety, was something that should be supported. As MLA, he would fight for funding for the project, he said. “I vote my beliefs and values, not my party,” Olsen said.

Macdonald said the flume was obviously in need of repair, and as the MLA for the area he had spoken to Ministers such as Shirley Bond and Ida Chong on the need to fund the project.

“In opposition you have to figure out ways to make government listen. In an NDP government, we can get funding for the project.” He said he was surprised that Kimberley

didn’t receive funding. “I actually expected a pre-election announcement,” he said. Clovechok said the announcement had nothing to do with pre-election spending. He said that since the

BC Liberals came to power in 2001, Kimberley had received $13 million in government grants. “All sorts of projects have been funded and none of that money is tied to this MLA. Bill

Bennett got the money. The job of an MLA is to represent people, to put people in from of the money. That’s what an MLA does.” Another local issue discussed was hazing deer. Macdonald was in favour of changing the legislation preventing hazing, saying the province had to take a more active role in the issue of urban wildlife. “In Kimberley you have a community with a plan that includes hazing. Banff and Canmore have used it and it worked. “There has to be more resources from the province.” Clovechok said that while wildlife was a problem for communities across the province, he did not believe hazing works. “The dogs haze the deer out and then they come back. It doesn’t work,” he said. “You need education and enforcement and a plan. Plans come from sitting down and having dialogue, and frankly, culling is part of that.” Olsen agreed with Clovechok on culling —he doesn’t believe it works either. See Page 4

Three of four candidates debate in Kimberley From Page 3 “Is it safe to have this many deer? We have to live with them but the province is responsible for them, and needs to give the community guidelines.” A more general question around the land transfer tax was asked —would any party support its cancellation. “The Conservative party doesn’t like inhibitive taxes,” Olsen said. “It discourages people from coming into the market. It

makes no sense. Like the carbon tax, it’s taking money out of the economy. Tax should be reasonable and fair across the board. We would work to clean that up.” Macdonald said that while the land transfer tax was an unfair one, and not the only one, you can’t remove it without finding another source of revenue. “To be honest, neither we, nor any other government, is going to remove it,” he said. “We have a huge

deficit, and all this debt is fiscally constraining.” “It’s not often that I agree with Mr. Macdonald,” Clovechok said. “But no government will have the opportunity to get rid of that tax. We (BC Liberals) are the low tax party. We are gong to lower the tax on small business. All I hear from the NDP is tax, tax,tax, spend, spend, spend.” See tomorrow’s Bulletin for more on the forum.

City of Kimberley Water Conservation Measures for City of Kimberley Residents

OUTDOOR SPRINKLING 1. Residents of properties with even numbered addresses should sprinkle or irrigate only on even numbered days. 2. Residents of properties with odd numbered addresses should sprinkle or irrigate only on odd numbered days. 3. Sprinkling and irrigating should be done between the hours of 4:00 am to 10:00 am AND 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm. 4. Automatic irrigation systems usually offer the option of activating sprinkling and irrigating at specified times. Optimum times are between the hours of 12:00 midnight and 4:00 am using the odd/even system described in Number 1 and 2. 5. All outdoor hoses should be equipped with working spring-loaded shut-off nozzles for any use by hand. 6. Hand watering of plants using a hose with a working springloaded shut-off nozzle or a hand-held container can be done at any time. 7. More frequent watering of newly laid sod or newly seeded lawns is expected. Please call City Hall and advise if you plan additional sprinkling for new lawns. 8. If additional information is required, please contact the Operations Services Department at City Hall – 250-427-5311, extension 213 or log on to our website (see address below). THIS IS A VOLUNTARY PROGRAM AND YOUR COOPERATION IS GREATLY APPRECIATED. The City of Kimberley has hired a student for their Water Conservation program. This program will have a three pronged approach to water conservation. The student will educate residents about water conservation who are seen watering during the heat of mid day or on off days. Secondly, greater awareness will be given to low flow showerheads and fixtures. Finally, commercial and residential water use audits will be conducted to help residents and businesses to reduce their water use. The City of Kimberley looks forward to working cooperatively with residents and businesses so that they can improve their water efficiency. The City of Kimberley would like to emphasize that these measures follow good gardening principles while going a long way to reduce water consumption. Over watering your lawn will drain nutrients away from the roots, promoting disease and infection and potentially damaging your root system. Additionally, those who choose to water in the heat of mid day risk losing over 50% of the water to evaporation and may burn their plants.

ticipate in the Kimberley Ages & Stages Pilot Project, provided by the Kimberley Early Childhood Development (ECD) team. Parents are asked to complete the Ages and Stages self-guided questionnaires which provide a quick look at their child’s overall development. They can gain confidence in their understanding of their child’s progress and learn ideas for supporting their next steps. The results will help show the child’s strengths and areas in which he or she may need support or more practice over time. If parents have concerns about their child, they will receive information about helpful activities and also support so that they can connect with appropriate services if desired. The Ages & Stages Pilot Project also provides families with information about par-

enting resources, community programs, and fun developmentally appropriate activities. For further information, or how to participate in the project, please contact Diana Card, Project Coordinator at 250- 427-0716 or CAPKimb@shaw.ca. This community initiative aims to create a long term, sustainable system that enables parents of every three year old child in Kimberley to complete the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ) and Ages and Stages Questionnaire: Social Emotional (ASQ:SE). Children starting kindergarten in Kimberley have consistently shown to be vulnerable in the areas of Social Competence and Emotional Maturity. Many have challenges that are best addressed at an earlier age. Project outcomes include: • A comfortable way

to discuss children’s development with all families • Educate parents on normative development and how to best support their child’s development • Early identification of required interventions • Data on number of children that require early intervention to assist with service provision funding requests • Reduce the number of children that start school vulnerable/ providing supports to children earlier Statistical data gathered from this project will be used to guide the provision of services in our community and support funding applications. The Kimberley ECD team would like to acknowledge the financial support of Columbia Basin Trust and Children First.

Canadian Pacific warns about trespassing During Public Rail Safety Week, CP Police are reminding East Kootenay residents to stay away from rail tracks; meanwhile, locals claim enforcement has become too stringent Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff Sally MacDonald photo

As RCMP and Canadian Pacific come together to raise awareness of railway safety, locals are saying they have been unfairly fined by CP Police. On Tuesday, April 30, Cranbrook RCMP officers joined up with Canadian Pacific Police Service officers to remind the public about the importance of safety near train tracks. Throughout the day Tuesday, the two law enforcement agencies performed checks at railway crossings in Cranbrook to mark Public Rail Safety Week in Canada, April 20 to May 5. The exercise was designed to remind people that CP Police are peace officers just like RCMP and sheriffs, and to deter people from trespassing on railway property. There are now two CP police officers based in Cranbrook whose task is to cover CP’s property throughout the

Cranbrook RCMP join Canadian Pacific Police for a joint enforcement exercise on Tuesday, April 30 at the 6th Street North railway crossing. East Kootenay. The CP Police Service is made up of constables who are employed by Canadian Pacific but work on behalf of the Crown. Many CP Police officers have previous police experience, and their job is to enforce the Canadian Railway Safety Act, as well as the Canadian Criminal Code and provincial traffic safety legislation. “Their priority is public and employee safety,” said Kevin Hrysak, CP’s media relations manager. “They are here to protect our railway infrastructure and public safety.” Hrysak said that CP Police generally issue a warning for trespassing before issuing a fine, which can be as much as $10,000. “In most cases we will warn someone first, but in some cases we

will issue a ticket because it is a deliberate act,” said Hrysak. “Unfortunately, in some cases, warnings are not enough and one way to deter people is to hit their pockets.” But Marysville resident Rawley Garrels said he complied with CP Police in Cranbrook last month and was still issued a fine rather than a warning. Garrels rode his bike into Cranbrook for a meeting on April 10 and stopped for a coffee at Starbucks. When he came out of the cafe, he realized his bike had a flat tire. “I had about 10 minutes to make the meeting so rather than change the flat right there, I said to myself that I would walk the bike to the meeting and I would change it afterwards,” said Garrels.

He walked his bike behind the Greyhound station on a trail about six metres from the track that goes all the way to 6th Street North. A CP Police officer came down the trail, stopped and asked Garrels for identification. “I wasn’t running or hiding,” Garrels said, adding that until the officer arrived, he hadn’t crossed the tracks. Still, the CP Police officer issued Garrels a $115 fine. Garrels is now disputing that fine. “Lots of people use it and there are vehicles parked along there,” he said. “I don’t think it’s right that they are charging people without giving them warning.” Garrels went on to say there is no indication the trail is CP property. “If there was a sign saying this is private property, no trespassing, or don’t enter, that’s fine. But if you go and look there, there is no indication anywhere along that says do not enter.” Hrysak said CP property can extend 200 feet or further from the centre of the tracks. “We are going to put up more signage,” he said. “Sometimes it’s not deliberate trespassing; they are just unaware of the dangers.” Other East Kootenay residents have raised concerns off the record that if CP are to become more stringent on trespassing laws, it could limit ac-

But Hrysak said if people stick to pedestrian crossings, they won’t be fined. “Pedestrian crossings are there for one reason and that’s public safety,” he said. CP does consider adding pedestrian crossings if a site is frequently used, depending on safety and funding, among other considerations. Anyone with concerns about access over CP property should contact an elected official, such as their Regional District of East Kootenay representative, mayor, MLA or MP. “We have a community relations department that deals with elected officials,” said Hrysak.

best-seller and remains the most widely used anthropological text ever, but it also ignited a firestorm that still flares up occasionally. Because Chagnon did not just say that primitive people were always at war, and that a lot of them died from it. He said that there was a GENETIC component in this behaviour. Like all good anthropologists, he did genealogies of the people he studied – and he discovered that men who had killed other men in battle had three times as many children as men who had not killed. Human beings are “imperfectly monogamous”, but in groups where force is relatively unconstrained the best warriors get more wives. Therefore, Chagnon said, they are more successful in passing on their genes. He did NOT say that culture and environment play no part in moulding human behaviour. He was simply documenting what should have been obvious: that if all human societies fight, then we must, among other things, have some genetic predisposition to do so. We are not necessarily doomed to fight in groups, but we are (unlike cows and pigeons) ABLE to do so.

Letters to the Editor

Now listen here!

To all young people: As of May 7, I, Stu Misko, will be 65 years old — a senior citizen. I’d like to let everybody, especially businesses, know that I will be whining and snivelling to get my seniors discount on everything, whether I need it or not. I’m starting to notice the signs of seniorism, such as: I’m really good at opening up child proof caps with a hammer; I’m smiling all the time because I can’t hear a word you’re saying; I’m usually interested in going home before I get where I’m going. I want the respect from you young people that I deserve, and you will call me Mr. Misko, not Old Geezer, Silver Tip, Old Fart (Gas Bag) or any other names you young people can think of. You young people don’t realize the wealth of knowledge that I have even though I can’t remember past last Tuesday. I’m a walking storeroom of facts — I’ve just lost the storeroom. Any advice I give you young people is not because I’m smarter than you — I’ve just done more stupid stuff. She Whom I Must Obey says she can tell I’m close to being a senior because I smell musty. I’m a drug addict — high blood pressure pills, vitamins; you name it, I take it. I’m starting to meet new people every day. Apparently I used to work with some of them. Go figger. I can’t remember names, so everyone is “Hey you!” I’m going to wear goofy hats and shorts. I will drive really slow and when you flip me the bird, I will give you that look and a goofy smile. Now if I can just find the newspaper building I will submit this letter. Stu Misko Kimberley 

Help for Hospice I’ve been a hospice volunteer for almost three years and am extremely proud of the hard-working volunteers, board members and, of course, Jeanne Davidson, our co-ordinator (and Volunteer of the Year). Through my experiences, I can see first-hand how valuable and appreciated the hospice services are. It wasn’t until I became a volunteer that I even understood the depth of difference we can make in someone’s end of life time and for their families as well. Menno and I have been hospice financial supporters for some time now, and usually conduct our “charitable” ways rather quietly. But this time we

want to go public and present a challenge. Dueck Enterprises and Fisher Peak RV Rentals are challenging the business community to raise $10,000 during Palliative Care Week, May 5 – 11. The week starts off with the Evening to Remember on Sunday, May 5, 6:30 p.m. at Idlewild Park and we’ll start off by throwing $500 into the pot. The $10,000 would go towards operating expenses and business owners know that without having operating costs covered it is virtually impossible to move forward. “Operating costs” may not be a pretty buzz word, but without it, there would be no Hospice Society. What a sad day that would be for our loved ones. To make your pledge, call Christie Dueck at 250-426-5460. Christie Dueck Cranbrook

Misquoted With regard to Mr. Delich’s letter to the editor concerning the Fernie All-Candidates Forum he is certainly entitled to his opinion of my performance. However, I would like to set the record straight with regard to his comments concerning my answers. First of all, let me clarify the letter’s reference to the “golden period for B.C.” which was not a comment of mine. What I did say was that according to Statistics Canada economic growth was greater in the 1990s under the NDP than it has been under the Liberals. More jobs were created in the 1990s and more people moved to B.C. In fact both Mr. Bennett’s family and my family moved to B.C. in the 1990s. My family moved here because there were many jobs in forestry. I also recommended the audience investigate the truth further by looking up the facts from Statistics Canada and checking reports by CBC (readers could also refer to articles online in The Tyee). With regard to my answer on the Flathead, I said that as the elected MLA my job will be to represent the views of local residents at the provincial table. In the event there is a proposal to change the status of the Flathead, I would make sure that the proper data was collected so that I could accurately represent the views of my constituents and would vote accordingly. I also said that I have one vote within a caucus and that is why I will work hard to ensure that all Kootenay East issues are front and centre with my caucus col-

leagues. I will be a strong, effective Kootenay East MLA within government. Norma Blissett Cranbrook

History shapes us but doesn’t define us Continued from page 6 In saying this, Chagnon outraged two overlapping groups: the large number of anthropologists of that generation whose intellectual roots were in Rousseau and Marx, and people who feared that primitive groups would be more vulnerable to exploitation by the mass societies around them if they lost the protective myth of the peaceful, noble savage. The tactics of Chagnon’s critics were ruthless and even slanderous: he was accused of giving the Yanomamo weapons and urging them to fight, even of deliberately causing a measles epidemic among them. He’s a combative sort, and his recent book shows the scars of fighting off unjust

accusations for more than forty years. He would have fared better if he had dropped the other shoe. If he had known as much about history as he did about anthropology, he would know that the level of violence in human affairs has dropped drastically since the rise of civilisation – precisely because we now live in bigger societies. Even the earliest mass societies lost far fewer people to war than the little societies of the more distant past, because it was no longer the entire male population that went to war. The battles were far worse than those of primitive warfare, but most people never saw a battle. Even the dreadful 20th century follows the trend line. At least 50 million people

Thursday, MAY 2, 2013 Page 7

were killed in the two world wars, but that was out of a global population that was nearing 2 billion people: a 3 percent fatal casualty rate for war over a period of 30 years. It’s very unlikely that any pre-contact primitive society ever had a casualty rate that low. And in the six decades since 1945, far less than one percent of the world’s people have died in war. We are shaped by both our genes and our culture, and our culture no longer accepts war as natural and inevitable. We are not better people than the Yanomamo, and we’re very far from perfect. But our past does not define our future. Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist based in London.

Reinhart leads Canada to gold medal at U18 championship TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

You could almost hear Sam Reinhart smiling through the phone. The young 17-yearold recently returned home from Russia sporting some new hardware for his trophy case after leading Team Canada to a gold medal finish at the IIHF World U18 Championship in Sochi. “It’s pretty special,” said Reinhart. For the final, the Canadians faced off against the defending champions in the U.S., and eked out a tight 3-2 victory, despite getting outshot 35-12. Frederik Gauthier notched the game winner for Team Canada, with scoring also coming from Laurent Dauphin and Madison Bowey, while Connor Clifton and Mike McCarron responded for the Americans. Goaltender Philippe Derosiers made 33 saves in net to give the Canadians the win. Reinhart said the Americans put on a really tough game, but his teammates were able to hold the line. “They’ve got a tremendous amount of

depth,” said Reinhart. “When you play together for two years, it’s obviously a challenge to go up against that. They played well against us for sure, as you saw from the shots, but we knew that if we played our game and focused on ourselves, we’d have success and that’s what we did in the final and came out on top.”

“We knew that if we played our game and focused on ourselves, we’d have success and that’s what we did in the final and came out on top.” Sam Reinhart Reinhart posted three goals and four assists in seven games over the course of the tournament, but it was OHL phenom Connor McDavid who led the way with eight goals and six assists for 14 points. The two have a connection via Kris Knoblauch, who coached Sam Reinhart in his rookie year, but is now mentoring McDavid as the bench boss for the OHL’s Erie Otters. McDavid, the OHL’s rookie of the year who was granted exceptional status to play his inaugural season as a 15-year-old, posted two hat tricks in the tournament and has made professional scouts take notice.

WESTERN HOCKEY LEAGUE

McGill named WHL coach of the year Kootenay Ice head coach honoured during league awards ceremony in Calgary TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Kootenay Ice head coach Ryan McGill has been named the WHL coach of the year during a ceremony at a league banquet in Calgary on Wednesday afternoon. McGill is the fourth Ice coach to nab the Dunc McCallum Memorial Trophy over the last nine years, as Cory Clouston won it twice, while Mark Holick also picked up the same hardware. McGill, who was the nominee for the Eastern Conference, beat out Ryan Huska, the bench boss for the Kelowna Rockets who led the team to a franchise record 52-win season. “It’s an honour, it’s a great award for our team,” said McGill. “I don’t consider this to be a coaches award because of how hard the players have to work and everybody else in the organization, so it’s a tremendous honour for the organization. “We’re very proud because there’s a lot of other coaches and a lot of other organizations that had great years.” McGill, who took

over the reigns last summer, oversaw a team that struggled in the first half of the year, collecting only 10 wins by the Christmas break. However, the Ice reversed their fortunes in the second half of the year and launched out of the WHL cellar into the playoffs for their 15th consecutive appearance.

The second half run began with a streak of 12 wins in 13 games, and the Ice shot up ladder and into eighth place, which kept their streak of post-season runs alive. “I don’t think we’re ever quite satisfied, to be honest, but at the same time, I think we are really proud of how the group came back after the Christmas break and really set their goals in front of

them and wanted to be better everyday,” added McGill. Kootenay faced the Edmonton Oil Kings in the first round, and bounced out after five games. The Oil Kings are currently heading into the championship round for a rematch of last year’s final against the Portland Winterhawks. McGill, Ice general manag er Jeff Chynoweth and head scout Garnet Kazuik will remain in Calgary for the WHL Bantam Draft on Thursday. The Kootenay head coach was previously nominated for the same award back in 2002 when his team captured the Memorial Cup, but lost out to Bob Lowes, who led the Regina Pats. After winning the CHL’s top prize, McGill graduated into the pro ranks, coaching in the AHL for seven years and the NHL with the Calgary Flames for two more seasons. The Flames didn’t renew his contract at the end of the 2010-11 season and he spent a year out of the game working in the oil and

However, McGill returned to the Ice last year, and the transition from the pro ranks back to major-junior hockey has been pretty smooth, he said. “The transition has been great,” McGill said. “I still have a long ways to go in learning and being able to deal with

16- to 20-year-olds, and I think I’m doing a good job here, reflecting on that. “Obviously, next year is a real important year for our organization and I want to make sure that I build those relationships even stronger for next year, and I’m working on that as we speak.”

Lillard wins NBA Rookie of the Year award ANNE M. PE TERSON Associated Press

PORTLAND, Ore. It’s unanimous: Damian Lillard is the NBA’s Rookie of the Year. No, it never was in question. Lillard, the sixth overall pick in last June’s draft out of Weber State, led all rookies with a 19point scoring average. He also averaged 6.1 assists and 3.1 rebounds,

playing in all 82 games this season. He broke Stephen Curry’s rookie record for 3-pointers in a season, finishing with 185, and became just the third NBA rookie with at least 1,500 points and 500 assists, following Oscar Robertson and Alan Iverson. And he swept all six of the league’s Rookie of the Month awards this season. “I can’t stop smiling,” Lillard said when he was awarded the Eddie Gottlieb Trophy on Wednesday. Lillard is the fourth player in league history to win the Rookie of the Year unanimously, joining Blake Griffin in 2011, David Robinson in 1990 and Ralph Sampson in 1984.

All season Lillard has been winning accolades from across the league. “He’s fantastic, really fantastic,” Kobe Bryant said after the two squared off in a game earlier this month. “A lot of players get hot, but he’s got the moves, the patience, intelligence, the balance on his jumpers. He’s the real deal.” Utah Jazz forward DeMarre Carroll is also a fan. “He’s a complete player,” Carroll said. “He’s a young guy but you’ve got to give him credit, he plays hard and the team really relies on him. He’s not afraid to take the big shot. The sky’s the limit.” At the ceremony to

announce the award at the Rose Garden Arena, the smartly dressed guard spoke about his upbringing in Oakland and how it shaped him as a hard-working player. He was disappointed when he broke his foot to start his junior season at Weber State, because he had hopes of jumping to the NBA. He redshirted, and came back the next season to earn All-American honours. He was voted the Big Sky’s Most Valuable Player. When he let Weber State know he was going pro, Lillard announced his first goal was to win Rookie of the Year. “I came out and I proved it up,” said the 6-foot-3 guard, who was proclaimed the team’s

franchise point guard from the start by Blazers general manager Neil Olshey. “I know that Damian’s best days are ahead of him,” Olshey said Wednesday. “This is the first step in a bright future.” Lillard is the fourth Blazer to win the Rookie of the Year award, joining Geoff Petrie (1971), Sidney Wicks (1972) and Brandon Roy (2007). “The thing you love about him more than anything else is he plays with a chip on his shoulder,” Toronto Raptors coach Dwane Casey said: “He’s one of those underdogs who went to a small school who is out to prove to everybody he’s an NBA player.”

Sports Red Sox rout Blue Jays 10-1 Gregory Strong Canadian Press

TORONTO - The Toronto Blue Jays were hoping Wednesday’s game against Boston would allow them to build off an impressive comeback win in the series opener the night before. Instead the Red Sox showed why they have the best record in the major leagues. Boston slugged five home runs and starter Clay Buchholz was masterful over seven shutout innings as the Red Sox crushed the Blue Jays 10-1 at Rogers Centre. Mike Napoli’s second homer of the game came in Boston’s four-run seventh inning as the Red Sox improved to 19-8. “Really we didn’t get anything going to stay in the game,” said Jays manager John Gibbons. “But like I said it was still manageable and we were still within striking distance going into the seventh inning and it exploded. “And then it was out of hand.” Stephen Drew, Daniel Nava and Mike Carp also homered for the Red Sox. Buchholz (6-0) allowed just two singles over seven shutout innings, lowering his earned-run average to 1.01. “It’s fun pitching good,” he said. “I’ll try to ride the wave as long as it’s there.”

The right-hander walked three and had eight strikeouts, throwing 66 of his 101 pitches for strikes. Buchholz leads the major leagues with six victories on the season.

“Really, we didn’t get anything going to stay in the game. But like I said, it was still manageable and we were still within striking distance going into the seventh inning and it exploded.” John Gibbons “When you’re able to command both sides of the plate and cut it and sink it on both sides of the plate, you know that’s why he’s been doing as (well) as he’s been doing,” said Toronto catcher J.P. Arencibia. Toronto (10-18) opened the three-game set Tuesday with a 9-7 victory that offered a glimmer of hope that this might be the series where they turn things around. But the Blue Jays were handcuffed by Buchholz and

simply could not put a rally together. The Blue Jays scored their lone run in the eighth off reliever Alex Wilson when Brett Lawrie of Langley, B.C., tripled to score Maicer Izturis. Boston got to Toronto starter Mark Buehrle (1-2) in the second inning. Will Middlebrooks reached after being hit by a pitch and Drew followed with his first homer of the season, pulling a 1-0 fastball into the second deck beside the right-field foul pole. Munenori Kawasaki hit a oneout single in the third for Toronto’s first hit but was left stranded when Lawrie and Colby Rasmus struck out. The Red Sox used the long ball again in the fourth inning. Napoli crushed a no-doubt blast to deep centre field for his fifth homer of the season. Nava followed with a solo shot of his own, also his fifth homer on the year, to make it a four-run game. The Red Sox loaded the bases in the sixth but Buehrle got out of the jam with a double play. The veteran left-hander was pulled with two outs in the seventh after issuing a walk to Jonny Gomes. Buehrle gave up five earned runs, seven hits, three walks and had one strikeout.

Bruins blow away Leafs to open series Neil Davidson Canadian Press

BOSTON - Nine years out of the NHL playoffs and the Toronto Maple Leafs looked rusty. And sloppy. And, by the end, befuddled. David Krejci had a goal and two assists as the Boston Bruins spoiled Toronto’s long-awaited return to the post-season, scoring four unanswered goals to defeat the sloppy Maple Leafs 4-1 on Wednesday night. The Bruins went be-

hind early but clawed their way back into the game before a capacity crowd of 17,565 in yellow-and-black at TD Garden - Boston’s 154th straight sellout. The experienced Bruins turned the screws on the error-prone Leafs as the game wore on. “I just thought we self-destructed ... We know that this is going to take more than an ordinary effort and tonight our effort wasn’t anywhere near close enough to put us in a

competitive position,” said Leafs head coach Randy Carlyle. Fans may have partied early in Toronto but last call was reserved for Bruins fans on this night. Wade Redden, Nathan Horton and Johnny Boychuk also scored for Boston on a night where video review ratified one Bruins goal and disallowed two more. Krejci, meanwhile, registered his 13th career multi-point playoff

Boston outshot Toronto 40-20, including 14-6 in the third period. “We left Reims (goalie James Reimer) out to dry for most of the game,” said Leafs centre Nazem Kadri, who also lamented a string of undisciplined turnovers. “We are just killing ourselves when we do those type of things,” he said. “No one expects to win when you’re playing shinny hockey out there.” “I’ve never seen so many people fall down with nobody around them,” added Carlyle. Game 2 goes Saturday and Carlyle promised changes in his lineup. “There are some thing we did that were totally, totally unacceptable from our standpoint and from a coaching standpoint and we have to correct it,” he said. “And now we have two days of practice and we’re going to practise to get better.”

Reinhart adds a gold medal to his growing collection Continued from page 8 Having generated a lot of buzz himself in his rookie year, Reinhart knows what McDavid is going through. “I can’t say enough about him,” said Reinhart. “He’s so young and the talent he has, it’s not everyday someone two years older says how easy it makes it playing with him, so it was a great experience for me and I really enjoyed it.” Reinhart captained the Canadian squad, but he isn’t a stranger to the position, as he held the same role during the Ivan Hlinka Memorial tournament last

Sam Reinhart August—another international event that had a golden finish. Reinhart also played on the same U18 team last year that had a heartbreaking 2-1 loss to the Americans in the semifinal, but pulled off a bronze medal victory with an overtime win against Finland.

The Kootenay Ice captain wanted the script to be different this time around. “It doesn’t really change, how bad you want to win the next time—every tournament you want to win just as bad—but being there last year and knowing this was my last time, my last opportunity at it, it definitely gives you more motivation to get it,” said Reinhart. Reinhart got his first taste of international competition in his rookie season, playing for Team Pacific in the U17 World Hockey Challenge.

Bayern Munich sets up all-German Champions League final Joseph Wilson Associated Press

BARCELONA, Spain Barcelona star Lionel Messi watched from the sideline as Bayern Munich completed its dismantling of the Spanish side with a 3-0 win on Wednesday, lining up the first all-German Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund. With its all-time leading scorer out after he aggravated a right hamstring injury, Barcelona failed to seriously threaten Bayern’s goal much less an epic comeback after its 4-0 first-leg defeat. Bayern, meanwhile, humbled a team that has been the envy of European football for a second time in only nine days. “I think it is a terrific performance, it is a little bit of history,” Bayern forward Arjen Robben said. “If we perform like this, against a team who have dominated Europe for the past five years, who have so much quality, it is amazing.” After the visitors had toyed with Barcelona in the first half, Robben finally

opened the scoring in the 49th minute before Barcelona’s Gerard Pique added an own goal in the 72nd. Thomas Mueller headed in Bayern’s third goal just four minutes later, as Barcelona slumped to its first home loss in European competition since 2009. Four-time winner Bayern will face Dortmund in the final on May 25 at Wembley Stadium. Besides Messi, Barcelona was also without four other first-choice players. But the glaring truth is that even with several Spanish internationals on the pitch Bayern, was once again the better side. And after this tie, it’s clear that the power has shifted away from Camp Nou further east. Pique described it as one of his club’s “worst nights,” adding that even Messi wouldn’t have made a difference. “It isn’t pleasant living through a situation like this,” Pique said. “In the first half, we really tried but when they scored the first we were left feeling down.

We have to congratulate Bayern who were superior. “The fact that Lionel Messi, the best player in the world, did not play was a factor - but I do not think his participation tonight would have changed things all that much.” While fellow Spanish side Real Madrid won 2-0 on Tuesday to almost reverse a 4-1 first-leg loss to Dortmund, Barcelona didn’t even come close and definitely didn’t bow out of Europe’s top-tier competition gracefully. Instead, its second stinging defeat to the newly-crowned German champions will surely open a period of reflection in the club, despite being on course to win the Spanish league title. The Catalan side has been seriously outclassed for the first time since a trophy-laden era started in 2008 under the guidance of former coach Pep Guardiola, who will take over as Bayern coach next season. After these performances, Guardiola will have a tough time matching the

job Jupp Heynckes has done this season. “When the draw came out and we were paired with Barcelona, I would never have imagined that we would win 4-0 and then 3-0 at the Camp Nou,” Heynckes said. “Barcelona is a fantastic team. Today it had personnel problems, when Messi plays it is very different. However, we played a game at a very high level for 90 minutes.” Bayern lost last year’s

final at home to Chelsea in a penalty shootout. It also reached the 2010 final, but went down 2-0 to Inter Milan. “I believe any team in the world would have trouble playing us because we are a unified group with clear objectives,” Heynckes said. “We have won the league, are in the (German) Cup final, and in the final of the Champions League after we lost last season due to some very bad luck.”

Cracks had already appeared in Barcelona’s reign, which had seen it win the European Cup three times in the last seven years, during the round of 16 with a 2-0 loss at AC Milan, before Messi dug down and scored twice to help secure a 4-0 win. “He’s the worst player for us to lose,” said Barcelona midfielder Xavi Hernandez. “Practically all the passes in the last three quarters of the pitch are for him.”

Veteran curler joins B.C. rink for Olympic pre-trials C anadian Press

Veteran curler John Morris will get another crack at representing Canada at the Olympic Games. Morris has joined Jim Cotter’s rink from Kelowna, B.C., as the team prepares for the Canadian Olympic pre-trial competition in November. The top two men’s and women’s teams at that event will advance to the Canadian curling trials with a spot at the 2014 Sochi Games on the line. Morris spent the last

seven seasons as a third on Kevin Martin’s Edmonton rink, helping the team win an Olympic gold medal, two Canadian men’s curling championships and one world title over that span. Morris parted ways with Martin last week, despite the fact Martin has already qualified for the Canadian curling trials. “The past couple seasons, especially this last season, I felt that we weren’t performing up to our capabilities,” Morris said at the

time. “I just felt it is in the best interest of our team if we brought someone new in there. “I’ve always played with passion and drive and I felt, especially this last season, I was lacking some of that and as result my performance had declined a bit and I was no longer thriving.” Morris said he would take some time to decide on his future, but within a week he had already found a new rink to call home.

Election 2013 issue: agriculture policies Part of a series comparing party platforms on an issue-by-issue basis To m F l e tc h e r Black Press

VICTORIA — Relief from carbon tax on farms and promotion of B.C.-grown agricultural products are key promises in the campaign for the May 14 provincial election. The B.C. Liberal Party and the B.C. NDP have argued for a decade about the best way to promote local food consumption. The NDP platform promises to reinstate the “Buy B.C.” program that identifies products grown anywhere in the province. The B.C. Liberal government ended that program, and in 2012 it committed $2 million to regional “Buy Local” promotions that they say are more adaptable to local needs. The party’s current platform promises to double that funding to “promote 50- and 100-mile diets.”

Neither party is specific about assistance for tree fruit growers. The NDP pledges to “help orchardists with replanting and other costs,” while the B.C. Liberals offer to “begin work on a permanent and sustainable tree fruit replant program, to be implemented following the current three-year, $2 million program.” In its pre-election budget, the B.C. Liberal government has offered $20 million in carbon tax relief for greenhouse and flower growers, in addition to an exemption for coloured gasoline and diesel used on farms. The B.C. Green Party proposes major reforms, including phasing out synthetic chemical pesticides, banning genetically modified crops such as canola and removing

Boaz Joseph/Black Press

Field preparation in the lower Fraser Valley taxes on value-added B.C. products such as juices and wines. Platform highlights:

• The B.C. Liberals promise a new meat inspection system by 2014, including a new

“Certified B.C. Beef” brand. The party also wants to create a “Centre of Excellence for Ag-

riculture” at the University of the Fraser Valley. • The B.C. NDP promises $8 million per

year starting in 2014 for agriculture programs. Plans include pilot programs to use B.C.  produce in hospitals and long-term care facilities. • The B.C. Conservative platform promises only to “introduce policies that support, farmers, ranchers and others.” The party emphasizes its pledge to phase out the carbon tax on all fossil fuels, citing its role in poor financial performance by B.C. agriculture relative to the rest of the country. • The B.C. Green Party would prohibit further release of top-rated land from the Agricultural Land Reserve, and “provide small grants to support municipalities and school boards that wish to maintain and expand community gardens and urban agriculture.”

to Business Update The Chamber Board of Directors has continued to encourage the City of Cranbrook to make changes to its processes, internal culture and the implementation and tracking of its economic development strategy to remove barriers to doing business in Cranbrook. This follows the Chamber’s presentation to Mayor and Council in December on the results of its barriers to business survey. This process has involved regular up-date meetings between Board Directors and City staff in areas such as the economic development strategy, permits and processes, and the service culture inside the City. The Board – which is optimistic that positive changes are underway - expects to receive a progress report from Mayor Stetski by the end of May. At that time, the Chamber Board will provide members with its own detailed progress report on what it sees happening. The Chamber Board welcomes feed-back from any existing or new businesses which are trying to start or expand business in the City.

A Salute to 4H the theme for Sam Steele Days June 13th – 16th. Nearly 100 Years In The Making!

The objective (of 4H competitions) is to train the heads and hands of the boys and girls; to give them broad and big hearts; to improve their

health by giving them an interest in outdoor life; and to encourage on the part of all British Columbia citizens, a stronger and more intelligent in agriculture.” Such was the goal of the 4H movement when it started in 1914 in British Columbia. During this first year, over

200 young people between the ages of 10 and 18 were involved in competitions sponsored by the Department of Agriculture. Originally the program focused on potatoes as a project but was expanded later that year to include poultry in order to interest more youth and to widen the influence of progressive

farming practices on the BC farming community. While 4-H has changed and evolved a great deal since its start in 1914, the impact of the program on the young people involved is as relevant today as it was back then. 4-H continues to teach young people to successfully meet

the challenges not only of their own futures but also the future of their communities. From the 6 year old Cloverbud member to the 21 year old 4H Ambassador, the 4-h program continues to be a fantastic training ground for life. The Sam Steele Society proudly salutes 4H it’s members.

Bangladesh factory collapse prompts Retail Council to update industry guidelines C anadian Press

TORONTO — The Retail Council of Canada is updating its industry guidelines in the wake of a building collapse at a garment factory in Bangladesh that killed at least 400 people. The association said in a statement Tuesday it will develop an updated set of guidelines for best practices and educational materials and resources for its members. It did not release details of the guidelines. The RCC said it has also joined a North American industry coalition of retail associations, and is working with the International Labour Organization, along with other stakeholders, including the Bangladeshi government, to come up with safety standards for the Bangladesh garment industry. The group represents

Workers and fire fighters are shrouded in smoke as they prepare to dislodge the debris and fallen ceiling of the garment factory building which collapsed in Savar, near Dhaka, Bangladesh on Monday, April 29, 2013. 45,000 Canadian retailers, including department, grocery and independent merchants. The illegally constructed eight-storey garment factory, which made products for Ca-

nadian clothier Joe Fresh, collapsed last week, resulting in a death toll that has now topped 400. About 2,500 survivors have been accounted for. Loblaw, which owns

Joe Fresh, said it is in the process of contacting family members of the deceased to provide compensation. The compensation announcement came as Loblaw and other companies met with the Retail Council of Canada’s responsible trade committee to discuss how to prevent similar tragedies in the future. Retail Council president and CEO Diane Brisebois has said one of the challenges has been that Canadian agencies don’t have the power to mandate that certain codes or regulations are followed in another country. Loblaw has said its vendor standards were designed to ensure that products are manufactured in a socially responsible way, but that current measures do not address the issue of building construction or integrity.

LAKE LOUISE, Alta. — Parks Canada has issued a moderate avalanche warning for Banff, Kootenay and Yoho national parks. Experts say below-normal temperatures in April have resulted in a lingering and unsteady alpine snowpack. They expect warmer spring temperatures will further increase the risk of snowslides to high. Outdoor enthusiasts are being

warned to avoid rugged backcountry trails and to stay within ski resort boundaries so as not to trigger the unstable snowpack. Parks Canada also says current conditions could also mean avalanche danger on some popular summer hiking trails. Officials say avalanche risks can be reduced by checking conditions before going out, avoiding avalanche terrain entirely or carrying safety gear.

Municipal politician irked by remuneration Michele Young Canadian Press

KAMLOOPS, B.C. — A city councillor in British Columbia’s Interior says she and her colleagues deserve more than minimum wage for the work they perform. Coun. Nancy Bepple says she crunched some numbers recently and found municipal politicians in Kamloops, B.C., are paid about $10 an hour. Bepple says she works 20 to 30 hours a week as a councillor and must buy back benefits from her pri-

vate employer, Thompson Rivers University, when she’s away on city business. Councillors have unanimously endorsed a motion introduced by Bepple on Tuesday that asks city staff to research remuneration rates in comparable cities around B.C. Any change in council’s pay would go into effect in December 2014, after the next municipal election. The mayor of Kamloops is currently paid more than $74,400 a year, councillors earn more than $24,800, and one-third of the pay is tax free.

Wide world

A drive through quaint English countryside A few years ago, I visited my friends living in Bristol and we did a driving tour of the Cotswolds. This was a fabulous trip, visiting an area of England far removed from the hustle of London. Defining the Cotswolds as a geographical region is an exercise; most people agree that the region is centred on the Cotswold escarpment, but there is no general agreement on where the boundaries of the region lie. Some maps show the Cotswolds stretching from the outskirts of Bath in the south almost to Stratford-upon-Avon in the north, and from the Severn in the west to Oxford in the east. Some of the confusion is unavoidable as the roads wind to and fro through the charming English countryside and you never really know for sure where you are. Along the Cotswald escarpment lie some of the prettiest, most “English” villages in the entire country. But getting around to these villages is interesting to say the least when you are being driven by an English driver, whose only two speeds are ‘full on’ and ‘stop’. I was gripping the armrests most of the trip! Hard to focus on the gorgeous countryside when you are fearing for your life round each turn. And they just laugh, ha ha, you North Americans

Carla Nelson of Maritime Travel tells what a tour of the Cotswolds has to offer

Submitted

Bourton-On-The-Water is a picturesque Cotswolds village with the Windrush River passing through town. with your wide roads and tame speed limits. I understand that you can do these loops through the quaint villages by tour bus rather than a rental car (or with a friend) which may be a lot more relaxing. But needless to say, we were able to stop any time when we spotted a cute pub, a quaint tea house, a beautiful riverside park, or a delightful church. One of my favourite villages is Bourton-onthe-water. The Windrush River meanders through the centre of town, and is crossed by low stone bridges. The cottages are built of lovely golden “Cotswold stone”, a warm-toned limestone that gives the

villages of this region a charm found in few other places. Artists line the banks of the river happily sketching on their easels. Children tangle their feet from the banks of the river. People picnic. It is just lovely. Tewkesbury has some fine antique shops, and an abbey church surrounded by half-timbered Tudor buildings. A few short miles away is Winchcombe, yet another delightful Cotswold village, and close to Winchcombe is Belas Knap. The names of these villages are so much fun to say – Chipping Sodbury, Chipping Camden and Cheltenham – almost as fun as

visiting them! Cheltenham owes its prosperity and its fine architecture to the spa which became popular

here in the Georgian period. The town is all white houses and wrought-iron railings and colourful baskets of flowers hung from the buildings. One of my favourite visits was to the town of Bath. The great Roman baths here were used from about 80-400AD, but they were then covered up by building on the site. In 1775 the baths and temple complex were discovered by accident, and they have been restored to their former glory. This is without a doubt the best Roman site in England, and well worth seeing. Nothing very British about Bath at all. You really shouldn’t visit the baths without visiting the Pump Room, which looks down into

the steaming Great Pool. It was here that generations of high society members came to drink the waters. You can still drink the waters, but it doesn’t really smell so good! You can’t ‘bath’ in the baths, this is not a hot springs, but nonetheless, it is a very interesting place. The best time to go to the Cotswolds is spring and fall to avoid the crowds. It’s a busy tourist area in the summer months. And the weather is quite decent in spring and fall. It’s not difficult to get there. We have nonstop flights from Calgary into

both London Heathrow and London Gatwick. Then buy a bus ticket on National Express right from the airport and a short few hours later (when you will be sleeping from the jet lag anyways), you will arrive in Bristol. Then you can take single or multi-day tours, rent a car, or hop in a friend’s vehicle and hope for the best. I’m still here, so I guess it wasn’t all that bad! But there’s always walking tours too...

US tribe faces $4.9M price to block development near massacre site Kristi Eaton Associated Press

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Tribal members say the man who owns a piece of the Wounded Knee National Historic Landmark on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation is trying to profit from their suffering, asking nearly $5 million for two tracts of land with an assessed value of less than $14,000. It was there, on Dec. 29, 1890, that 300 Native American men, women and children were killed by the 7th Cavalry in the final battle of the American Indian Wars.

James Czywczynski, whose family has owned the property since 1968, is trying to sell the 40acre (16-hectare) fraction of the historic landmark and another 40acre parcel for $4.9 million (16-hectare). He has given the Oglala Sioux Tribe until Wednesday to agree to the price, after which he will open it up to outside investors. Oglala Sioux tribal president Bryan Brewer told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the tribe does not have the money to buy the land and that, even if

it did, tribal members shouldn’t have to buy back something that is theirs. “We are hoping no one will buy this land. And I’d like to tell investors that if someone thinks they can go down there and commercialize this, it will never happen. We will not allow it,’’ he said. Czywczynski did not return repeated calls from The Associated Press on Wednesday. Earlier this month he told the AP he had three offers from West Coastbased investment groups interested in

Officials load a plane part that was discovered wedged between an apartment building and a mosque into a truck in New York, May 1, 2013.

Suspected 9-11 plane part removed from between 2 buildings Colleen Long Associated Press

NEW YORK — Police used a pulley system on Wednesday to remove a suspected 9-11 plane part from between two buildings near the World Trade Center site, and the medical examiner said no potential human remains had been found there. About six officers raised the jagged, 255pound (115 -kilogram) metal piece, which contains cranks, levers and bolts. They took it over a three-story wall, lowered it into a courtyard, and carried it through a basement.

Onlookers across the street took pictures as they loaded it onto a truck headed to a Brooklyn police facility. The part was discovered a week ago, wedged in a narrow space between an apartment building and a mosque. In 2010, the mosque prompted national debate about Islam and freedom of speech because it’s located just blocks from ground zero. Authorities believe the rusted wing part is from one of the two hijacked airliners that brought down the trade centre on Sept. 11, 2001. The 5-foot piece is a

trailing edge flap support structure, police have said. Located close to the body of the plane, the part helps secure wing flaps that move in and out and aid in regulating plane speed. Boeing officials told police the part came from one of its 767 airliners, but it isn’t possible to determine which one. Both hijacked planes that struck the towers, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, were Boeing 767s. American and United have had no comment.

buying the land for the original asking price. The ultimatum has caused anger among many tribal members and descendants of the massacre victims. “I know we are at the 11th hour, but selling this massacre site and using the victims as a selling pitch is, for lack of a better word, it’s grotesque,’’ said Nathan Blindman, 56, whose grandfather was 10 when he survived the massacre. “To use the murdered children, the murdered teenagers, the unborn, women screaming and running for their lives, using that as a selling pitch ... that has got to be the most barbaric thing ever to use as a selling pitch.’’ Czywczynski acknowledges the historical significance adds value to each parcel of land, which have each been appraised at less than $7,000 apiece, according to records reviewed by the AP. Besides its proximity to the burial grounds, the land includes the site of a former trading post burned down during the 1973 Wounded Knee uprising, in which hundreds of American Indian Movement protesters occupied the town built at the massacre site. The 71-day standoff that left two tribal members dead and a federal agent seriously wounded is credited with raising awareness about Native American struggles and giving rise to a wider protest movement that lasted the rest of the decade. The land sits on the Pine Ridge Indian Res-

Brings Plenty said the tribes are not in a position to pay millions of dollars for the land. Although tribal members are not opposed to development that would preserve, beautify or better educate the public about the land and its history, they are opposed to commercialization, he said. “You don’t go and dance on grandma and grandpa’s grave to turn a hefty dollar sign,’’ he said. Tribal members and descendants have reached out to President Barack Obama to make the site a National Monument, which would better guard it against

development and commercialization, Brings Plenty said. But even if an outside investor buys the land with intent to develop, there will be obstacles, said Craig Dillon, an Oglala Sioux Tribal Council member. The tribe could pass new laws preventing the buyer from actually building at the site. “Whoever buys that is still going to have to deal with the tribe,’’ Dillon said. “Access is going to be an issue. Development is going to be an issue. I’m not threatening anybody, but my tone is be aware you have to deal with the tribe if you purchase it.’’ There are nearly 2,500 national historic landmarks across the country, with the vast majority of them owned by private landowners, said Don Stevens, chief of the History and National Register Program in the Midwest Region

for the National Park Service. “We advocate for preservation and we always express concern about potential harm for their care,’’ Stevens said, adding that the NPS does not have any legal authority. Still, a site can lose its designation if it does not retain its physical integrity, he said. One example is Soldier Field in Chicago, which lost the designation when it was remodeled a decade ago because it changed its physical character. As for the Wounded Knee site, Stevens said any development could potentially affect the Historic Landmark designation. “Certainly you would hear a hue and cry about that type of thing,’’ he said. “And certainly if we saw something going up, we’d express our concern, even if we don’t have a legal jurisdiction to intercede, we’d express our concern.’’

5-year-old child accidentally shoots 2-year-old sister Associated Press

BURKESVILLE, Ky. — A 5-year-old U.S. boy accidentally shot his 2-year-old sister to death with a rifle he had received as a gift last year, authorities said. The children’s mother was home at the time Tuesday afternoon but had stepped out to the front porch for a few minutes and “she heard the gun go off,’’ Cumberland County Coroner Gary White said. He said the rifle was kept in a corner, and the family didn’t realize a bullet was left inside it.

White told the Lexington Herald-Leader newspaper the boy received the .22-calibre rifle, especially made for children, as a gift. The shooting, while accidental, highlights a cultural divide in the U.S. debate over gun control, which again became a top issue after 20 young children and six adults were shot dead at a Connecticut school in December. While many urban and suburban areas work to keep guns out of the hands of children, it’s not uncommon for youths in rural areas to

own guns for target practice and hunting. “Down in Kentucky where we’re from, you know, guns are passed down from generation to generation. You start at a young age with guns for hunting and everything,’’ White said. The girl died of a single gunshot wound to the chest area. It is not clear whether any charges will be filed, said Kentucky State Police spokesman Trooper Billy Gregory. The AP is not identifying the children because of their ages.

Scientists find evidence of cannibalism at Jamestown Bre t t Zongker Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Scientists revealed Wednesday that they have found the first solid archaeological evidence that some of the earliest American colonists at Jamestown, Virginia, survived harsh conditions by turning to cannibalism. For years, there have been tales of people in the first permanent English settlement in America eating dogs, cats, rats, mice, snakes and shoe leather to stave off starvation. There were also written accounts of settlers eating their own dead, but archaeologists had been skeptical of those stories. But now, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History and archaeologists from Jamestown are announcing the discovery of the bones of a 14-yearold girl that show clear signs that she was cannibalized. Evidence indicates clumsy chops to the body and head of the girl, who appears to have already been dead at the time. Smithsonian forensic anthropologist Douglas

Owsley said the human remains date back to a deadly winter known as the “starving time’’ in Jamestown from 1609 to 1610. Hundreds died during the period. Scientists have said the settlers likely arrived during the worst drought in 800 years, bringing severe food shortages for the 6,000 people who lived at Jamestown between 1607 and 1625. The historical record is chilling. Early Jamestown colony leader George Percy wrote of a “world of miseries,’’ that included digging up corpses from their graves to eat when there was nothing else. “Nothing was spared to maintain life,’’ he wrote. In one case, a man killed, “salted,’’ and began eating his pregnant wife. Both Percy and Capt. John Smith, the colony’s most famous leader, documented the account in their writings. The man was later executed. “One amongst the rest did kill his wife, powdered her, and had eaten part of her before it was known, for which he was executed, as he well deserved,’’ Smith

Doug Owsley, division head for Physical Anthropology at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History, displays the skull of ‘Jane of Jamestown’ during a news conference at the museum in Washington, Wednesday, May 1, 2013. wrote. “Now whether she was better roasted, boiled or carbonado’d (barbecued), I know not, but of such a dish as powdered wife I never heard of.’’ Archaeologists at Jamestown and Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia were somewhat skeptical of the stories of cannibalism in the past because there was no solid proof, until now. “Historians have questioned, well did it happen or not happen?’’ Owsley said. “And this is very convincing evidence that it did.’’ Owsley has been working with William Kelso, the chief archaeologist at Jamestown, since their first burial discovery in 1996. The remains of the 14-year-old girl, discov-

ered in the summer of 2012, mark the fourth set of human remains uncovered at Jamestown outside of graves. Researchers named her “Jane’’ to give her an identity for a book explaining her story. Her remains were found in a cellar at the site that had been filled with trash, including bones of horses and other animals consumed in desperation, according to archaeologists. The discovery detracts from the happier mythology of John Smith and Pocahontas that many associate with Jamestown. The vice-president of research at nearby Colonial Williamsburg,

which oversees excavations of the original Jamestown site, said visitors will have a fuller view of a terrible time in early American history. “I think we are better served by understanding history warts and all because I think it gives us a better understanding of who we are as a people,’’ James Horn said. “It gives us a better sense of the sacrifices that people made, ordinary people like Jane, to survive in the new world.’’ Owsley, who has also done forensic analysis for police investigations, analyzed the girl’s remains and how the body had been dismembered, including chops to the

front and back of the head. The girl was likely already dead at the time. There was a cultural stigma against killing someone for food. But it was clear to Owsley immediately that there were signs of cannibalism. “It is the evidence found on those bones that put it within the context of this time period,’’ he said. “This does represent a clear case of dismemberment of the body and removing of tissues for consumption.’’ It was the work of someone not skilled at butchering, Owsley said. There was a sense of desperation. The bones show a bi-

zarre attempt to open the skull. Animal brains and facial tissue would be considered accepted and desirable meat in the 17th century, Owsley said. The human remains will be placed on display at Jamestown to explain the horrid conditions early settlers faced. At the Smithsonian, curators will display a digital reconstruction of the girl’s face in an exhibit about life at Jamestown. Owsley said archaeology is helping to fill in details from a time when few records were kept — details that won’t likely be found in history books. Kelso, whose archaeology team discovered the bones, said the girl’s bones will be displayed to help tell a story, not to be a spectacle. “We found her in a trash dump, unceremoniously trashed and cannibalized, and now her story can be told,’’ Kelso said. “People will be able to empathize with the time and history and think to themselves, as I do: What would I do to stay alive?’’ The Smithsonian and Jamestown archaeologists are publishing their findings in a new book but decided against waiting to announce the discovery through a peer-reviewed journal. “In a lot of ways, I say Jane is us,’’ Kelso said. “She brings the past to the present.’’

LONDON — A British adventurer has died and two others suffered frostbite as they tried to cross Greenland’s ice cap on a charity hike, officials said Wednesday. The British Foreign Office said Philip Goodeve-Docker died and two others on the trek remained hospitalized. On Friday, the three-man expedition got caught by a strong cold wind that sweeps across the eastern part of the vast icecap, Poul Petersen, a spokesman for the police in Greenland said. A rescue helicopter was not able to reach the men until Saturday because of the bad weather, and on arrival they found that Goodeve-Docker was dead.

Philip Goodeve-Docker died during a trek across Greenland. The survivors were flown to

Britain via Iceland after first being treated at a hospital in Tasiilaq on Greenland’s east coast, 180 kilometres (112 miles) south of the Arctic Circle, Petersen said. Goodeve-Docker’s body was being sent later to Britain, he said. Goodeve-Docker embarked on the trip to raise money for charity in honour of his grandfather, who died two years ago. On his website, he described the 500 to 600-kilometre (310 to 370-mile) trek as one of the great polar challenges. The adventurer said he expected the trip’s dangers to include polar bears, strong winds, crevasses up to 500 metres (1,650 feet) and temperatures as low as minus 50 Celsius (minus 58 Fahrenheit).

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I’m in my 40s and have been married for 20 years. We have two children. Our marriage has been OK but not totally fulfilling. For the past five years, I have been in contact with my ex-fiancee. I have thought about getting divorced a number of times but have never gone through with it. I love my wife, but not the same way I love my ex. Whenever I speak with my ex, I am my happy old self. She is the most caring, sweet, romantic person I’ve ever met, and I know, without a doubt, that our lives would be happy if we were together. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about her. We treat each other the way people should be treated. My children do not have the best relationship with their mother, so I don’t think a divorce would be all that traumatizing for them. I just don’t want to hurt her. I have spoken to her about the things I’d like changed, but she only complies for a short while, and then things go back to the way they were. Is this just a midlife crisis? Should I settle and stick with my current life or take a chance on a new one? -- Wanting No Regrets Dear Wanting: So why didn’t you marry your ex-fiancee? It’s not uncommon to fantasize about a wonderful life with someone you don’t actually live with. The mundane responsibilities, raising children, doing housework, paying bills -- all of those things are unromantic and unexciting. It takes work to make a good marriage. Don’t simply tell your wife what you want her to change. Maybe she’d like you to change, too. We commend you for not wanting to hurt her. So please give your marriage a chance before you bail. Ask your wife to come with you for marriage counseling to see whether you can work through some of those things that are making you unhappy. Dear Annie: My husband recently passed away after 40 years together. It’s been heartbreaking. While going through his desk, I found a checkbook for our joint trust account. He had written in it that he wanted to leave all five of our children a sizable amount of money. I have no problem with four of them, as they are all employed and responsible adults. However, the fifth “child” is 58, unemployed, and living on his veterans benefits and disability so he can smoke medical marijuana. I have already written checks for the first four kids, but I am dragging my feet about the fifth. It was my husband’s wish that they all be treated equally. Am I being disrespectful to my husband’s memory by not getting a check out to my son? I’m afraid he will blow it all on weed. -- An Anxious Mom Dear Mom: We think your son is probably as responsible as he’s going to get. Certainly your husband knew this. Talk to your son. Explain that he has money coming to him, but you are concerned that it won’t last very long. Ask whether he’d like you to pay it to him in installments or put it in a trust for his long-term benefit. He may actually prefer an arrangement like this, but if not, please give him the money anyway. What he does with it is not your problem. Dear Annie: Perhaps the owners of vacation homes whose guests leave photos of their own families in the home could start guest scrapbooks. A large scrapbook would provide room for visitors to note when they were there and perhaps mention a few of the more interesting things they did while enjoying the generous hospitality of the owners. This would provide a nice memory book for both the owners and guests, as well as providing an appropriate place for guests to leave their family photos. -- Barbara in Ventura Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

NEWS Missing woman, last seen dropping off kids for school in 2002, surfaces in Fla. Mark Scolforo Associated Press

Carmen Blandin Tarleton, of Thetford, Vt, underwent a transplant in February after a 2007 attack in which her estranged husband doused her with industrial strength lye, burning more than 80 percent of her body.

US woman reveals new face after transplant Rodrique Ngowi Associated Press

BOSTON — A U.S. woman revealed her new face after a transplant Wednesday, six years after her ex-husband disfigured her by dousing her with industrial-strength lye, and said she went through “what some may call hell’’ but has found a way to be happy. Carmen Blandin Tarleton had face transplant surgery in February and spoke publicly for the first time at a news conference. “I’m now in a better place, mentally and emotionally, than I ever could have imagined six years ago,’’ Tarleton said. “I want to share my experience with others, so they may find that strength inside themselves to escape their own pain.’’ In 2007, the 44-year-old mother of two was attacked by Herbert Rodgers, who believed she was seeing another man. Police say he struck her with a bat and poured lye from a squeeze bottle onto her face.

When police arrived, Tarleton was trying to crawl into a shower to wash away the chemical, which had already distorted her face. In 2009, Rodgers pleaded guilty to maiming Tarleton in exchange for a prison sentence of at least 30 years. A Boston hospital said more than 30 surgeons, anesthesiologists and nurses worked for more than 15 hours to replace skin, muscles, tendons and nerves in the face transplant. The face donor was Cheryl Denelli Righter, who died of a sudden stroke, a hospital spokeswoman said. Righter’s daughter, Marinda, told Tarleton on Wednesday that she looked beautiful, adding she was certain her mother had somehow picked Tarleton. “They are both mothers, they are both survivors, they are both beacons of light,’’ she said. Tarleton, who is legally blind, thanked Righter’s family for what she called “a tremendous gift’’ that’s greatly alleviated the pain she’d felt daily.

Newly-adopted puppy tracked, taken by former owner C anadian Press

SAANICH, B.C. — An internal investigation is underway within the B.C. SPCA, after a newly-adopted puppy was reclaimed by its original owner. Officials at the society want to know how a 30-year-old Squamish woman was able to trace the ninemonth-old husky-shepherd cross to its new home on Vancouver Island.

Police were called after someone broke into a Saanich home last Tuesday and grabbed the dog. An investigation led to the Squamish resident who had the pup when she was taken into custody. According to the SPCA, the dog had been abandoned by its original owner and it was surrendered to the society for placement in its adoption program.

LITITZ, Pa. — A central Pennsylvania woman who mysteriously disappeared after dropping off her children for school 11 years ago has surfaced in Florida, telling police she travelled there on a whim with homeless hitchhikers, slept under bridges and survived by scavenging food and panhandling, authorities said Wednesday. Brenda Heist, 53, had been declared legally dead, Lititz Borough Police Det. John Schofield said. The detective said he met with her in Florida on Monday and she expressed shame and apologized for what she did to her family. Heist was going through an amicable divorce in 2002 when she was turned down for housing assistance, which led her to despair. She was crying in a park when two women and a man befriended her, then invited her to join them as they began a monthlong hitchhiking journey to south Florida, Schofield said. Her ex-husband Lee Heist, who got the courts to declare her legally dead two years ago and has remarried, said at a news conference Wednesday that he was angry because of the effect her disappearance had on their son and daughter. Lee Heist was looked at as a suspect, but co-operated with investigators, took a polygraph and was eventually cleared. He was able to maintain a bond with the children. “They knew that I was there, and I loved them and would take care of them,’’ he said. He said his ex-wife and their children have expressed a desire to speak with each other, but for now they are taking things slowly. Schofield said Brenda Heist was expected to be released from police custody in Florida and was likely to spend some time with a brother in that state before moving in with her mother in Texas.

Brenda Heist in 2002 (left) and in 2013. “She has a birth certificate and a death certificate so she’s got a long ways to make this right again,’’ Schofield said. “She’s got to take it slow with her family, I’m sure, and it’s going to be a long process.’’ Inside her Lititz home the day she disappeared, dinner was defrosting and the laundry was half done. Police located her car in a neighbouring county but none of her personal belongings were taken. When Schofield called recently to meet with her ex-husband and their daughter, they assumed he would be notifying them that her remains were found, the detective said. Lee Heist said he struggled financially after his wife disappeared, quitting his job and losing his home. She had been a bookkeeper at a car dealership. “There were people in the neighbourhood who would not allow their children to play with my children’’ because he had been a suspect, he said. Brenda Heist turned herself in to Monroe County sheriff’s deputies in Key Largo, Fla., on Friday, regarding some outstanding warrants, and then informed them she was a missing person. She had apparently been using a different name and had been homeless for the past two years, most recently living in a tent community run by a social service agency.

“She said she was at the end of her rope, she was tired of running,’’ Schofield said. For about seven years she lived with a man in a camper in Key West and worked odd jobs. Schofield said she never had access to a computer and never checked to see if she was being sought, although she assumed she was. The Heists’ daughter is now a 19-year-old West Chester University sophomore, and their son, 23, recently graduated from the same college and is pursuing a law-enforcement career. The school is about 30 miles west of Philadelphia. Schofield said police in Florida were trying to sort out the warrants before releasing Brenda Heist. The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said Heist was in “protective custody,’’ although not with the office. The sheriff’s office did not immediately respond to a request by The Associated Press for a way to contact her. Police in Lititz said the investigation eventually involved dozens of detectives, and although the trail had grown cold the case had never been forgotten, with Heist’s picture tacked to a wall at police headquarters. Lee Heist said he and the children also remembered, and observed anniversaries. Her valuables were returned to her mother years ago, he said.

Ontario woman rescued from mud after 12-hour ordeal C anadian Press

HALIBURTON, Ont. — A central Ontario woman didn’t panic when she was stuck kneedeep in mud for 12 hours because her dog snuggled up to keep her warm and calm. Sandra Van Alstyne, 64, was out walking Monty, a three-yearold border collie, in the cottage country area of Haliburton Highlands on Tuesday around 10:30 a.m. when she encountered a muddy section of a trail. “It didn’t look like it would be a real problem,’’ she said Wednesday from her home. “So I

stepped in it and I got sucked down into it.’’ Van Alstyne got her right leg free, but her left leg just wasn’t coming, she said. “It was like it was cemented,’’ she said. When she didn’t return home Van Alstyne’s husband became frantic and called police, who immediately started searching for her. In the mud, meanwhile, Van Alstyne said she wasn’t too worried. “I surprised myself,’’ she said. “I didn’t panic. I had my dog

with me and he stayed right by me, even when it got a little chilly he was right there to snuggle into.’’ About 12 hours after she got stuck, provincial police found her using a helicopter and tracking dogs and had to use shovels to help get her out. The officers themselves nearly got stuck while trying to rescue her, Van Alstyne said. She got checked out at the hospital and is no worse for wear, except for a voice hoarse from shouting for help. Monty is fine too, she said.

With so many advertising mediums dividing the attention of potential customers, newspapers remain the most effective source for reaching consumers. Why? Simply put, newspapers reach more people, more often. Highly portable and highly visible, newspaper ads go with people and stay with them. That means your business is more likely to be on their minds when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the market for related products or services. When it comes to spending your advertising dollars, make the choice thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tried and true: newspaper advertising works harder for you.
