RCMP stepping up traffic enforcement ARNE PETRYSHEN Townsman Staff


Tammy Bouvette is escorted from Cranbrook courthouse during a break in sentencing May 13.

Cranbrook RCMP are going to continue stepping up traffic enforcement this year. Cpl Pat Prefontaine said traffic is one of the local detachment’s top priorities and figures prominently in the plan for 2013 and 2014. Prefontaine presented first quarter crime

statistics last week in council. The number of tickets handed out for traffic violations rose to 141 in the first quarter from 87 last year, a 62 per cent change. Total notices and orders, as well as total detachment tickets also rose by 55 per cent and 57 per cent respectively. Coun. Sharon Cross said she was glad to see

traffic was a priority. Total calls to the RCMP were similar in the first quarter this year when compared to the same period of 2012. From January to March there were 1,861 calls to service, a slight decrease from last years number of 1,918 for the same period.

Bouvette pleads guilty Serving the community one bowl at a time Sentencing hearing begins for woman charged with criminal negligence over 2011 death of a Cranbrook toddler SALLY MACDONALD Townsman Staff

The woman charged in connection to the death of a 19-month-old Cranbrook girl has pleaded guilty to criminal negligence causing death. Originally charged with second degree murder, Tammy Bouvette was in Cranbrook Provincial Court on Monday, May

13 for a sentencing hearing over the May 2011 drowning death of Iyanna Teeple. Bouvette, 29, cried throughout the day-long proceedings, at times with her head in her hands. She wore green sweats and has a tattoo on her neck that reads “Mommy’s Angels”. Prosecutor Lianna Swanson

outlined the Crown’s case for Judge Lisa Mrozinski. While Bouvette originally told RCMP that Iyanna drowned in the bathtub on May 26, 2011, while Bouvette turned to pick up a shampoo bottle, she later admitted to different circumstances.

Kimberley’s Baptist church got inspired by a hungry traveller to create a soup kitchen in their community K AITY BROWN Townsman Staff

Kimberley’s Baptist Church is hosting a soup kitchen every Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for anyone to come and have homemade soup.

The soup kitchen program has been going since Jan. 19 and has yielded steady success — with a handful of regulars as well as some newbies here and there. “Anyone is welcome

to come and eat some soup, not just those who need it,” said Dave Stephanek, one of the founders of the soup kitchen program.

I once awoke from a dream only to find my human standing over me with one of those “aw, isn’t that cute” looks in his eyes. He then reached down and scratched me behind the ear and asked, “Were you chasing rabbits in your sleep, Boulder? You were whimpering and your legs were just a goin’.”

An unrestrained dogumentary.

This is an example of how human-types often underestimate the canine psyche. They presume that being dogs, our dreams and desires are restricted to our physicality, our earthly wants and needs. I mean chasing rabbits is fine sport but why would I limit my imaginings to the possible. Why not release my subconscious to soar on the wings of the impossible.

No gentle reader, the next time you see your pup twitch and whimper in his sleep, he is most likely not dreaming of the pursuit of earthly prey; he is probably dreaming he can fly.

Ariel Manoeuvres: Young ravens playfully tumble through the sky in a celebration of flight.

Graceful and Deadly: A Red Tail Hawk keeps an eye out for a dinner of ground squirrel or perhaps puddy tat.

I have been intrigued by flight and jealous of those who possess the ability, since puppyhood. As a tyke I would watch the birds flit back and forth at the feeder and marvel at their aerobatics.

Once, I tried to chase a raven that had swooped down to tease me. Unfortunately, just as I was picking up speed, I impacted a tree trunk with considerable force and a cautionary double lesson was learned. Firstly, the earth bound must stay alert for terrestrial hazards and secondly, ravens have a twisted sense of humour.

Despite my early opinion of ravens, I must admit that of all the birds, it is they that seem to most appreciate the gift of flight. I have witnessed the sleek, black birds aerially cavorting with each other; barrel rolls, dives, even grabbing each other by the feet and tumbling end over end, chuckling as they fall through the sky.

If it is true that a sense of humour and an appreciation for play is an indicator of intelligence, then ravens are brilliant indeed.

Another bird I have no shortage of respect for is the red-tailed hawk. We have a pair of them that often hunt the gophers which have taken up residence in our llama pasture. Unfortunately, these birds of prey do not seem to differentiate between gophers and house cats. More than once a feline friend of mine has had to scrabble for cover after seeing the silent shadow of the hawk sliding towards him.

With penchant for late night snacks, this Barred Owl was the number one suspect in the demise of Cat Chester.

Boulder takes flight: Considering he doesn’t have any wings, he flies well for a dog.

The red-tails may be an imminent threat to our kittens but as fate would have it, it was an owl that snatched my feline pack mate, Chester, away from us. While on a late night mousing expedition, the hunter became the hunted. Humans wept and dogs moped. Despite our understanding that the world was unfolding just as it was meant to, we mourned his loss. Just as Chester had caused so many mice mothers to do.

Perhaps, it will be death that opens the door to flight. In the book “The Art of Racing in the Rain,” I read that in Mongolia, when a dog dies they cut off his tail, place it beneath his head, and put a piece of meat or fat in his mouth. All this to speed his journey into the next life, where he may come back as a man. If this is true, maybe if you have been an especially good dog, that next form might even be that of a soaring hawk or a playful raven. Since I am not in a big hurry to lose my life (or my tail for that matter) I remain earthbound. For now, my only experiments with flight will come when I encounter a terrestrial hazard at speed … and soar right over it.

RCMP detail spikes and trends for Council Continued from page 1 Prefontaine said there weren’t any real surprises in the report other than a 68 per cent increase in mischiefs. There were 99 mischief reports so far this year compared to 59 last year. On the other hand, break-ins were down by 27 per cent, with 16 happening this year compared with 22 last year. Prefontaine said in the case of the mischief reports, there was no apparent pattern to the crimes. “I didn’t notice any trends,” he said. “I do see groups of eight mischiefs in a day and 15 to 30 in a period of three days. We have one (day) where there is eight in the same area – tire slashing, window breaking. What we find is that when someone goes on a rampage, they keep it pretty local and they are usually on foot.” Prefontaine also noted that one car being vandalized

amounts to one file, so one vandal could cause multiple files and increase the numbers, which skews the statistics. Coun. Denise Pallesen mentioned that council had received a letter from a resident noting there is more vandalism when the carnival is in town. “I planned for carnival this year and that wasn’t a consideration of mine,” Prefontaine said. “I didn’t see a trend there at all as far as an increase in breakins.” He said there is more public drunkenness, but that is a spike and not a trend. Police had 145 reported person offences, which include things like assaults, sexual assaults, robberies and threats, compared to last year’s 133. For 2012 police followed three prolific offenders and this year will add a fourth person to the program.

There is also a new prolific offender co-ordinator. The prolific offender program runs on the idea that 50 per cent of crimes in a community are perpetrated by 10 per cent of offenders, and so tries to deal with them in various ways. “When we have a new prolific offender we do what’s called a lifestyle interview,” Prefontaine explained about the program. “We approach these people, do an interview and talk about their life of crime. In no uncertain terms they are told ‘we’re going to be watching you, we’re going to be doing curfew checks.’ Sometimes it is twice a night on weekends. We’re there, we’re checking to make sure they are following their conditions.” Prefontaine said on the drug front, the drug task force is now doing multiple warrant searches per day. “There is no lack of work,” he said.

Bouvette pleads guilty, to be sentenced Thursday Continued from page 1 Bouvette was caring for Iyanna and two of her own four children, then aged 17 months and four years, and had just finished feeding Iyanna lunch, she later told RCMP. She began to unclip Iyanna from a high chair when she heard noise from another room and went to check on the other children. Bouvette then heard a loud bang from the kitchen and rushed back to see Iyanna face down on the kitchen floor with the chair on top of her. Bouvette picked Iyanna up and said she had a red mark on her forehead but no other

visible injuries. She took the crying baby upstairs and ran a bath. She then left the bathroom for about five minutes, Bouvette told RCMP in a statement in June 2011. When she returned, Iyanna was face down in the bathtub and unresponsive. Bouvette phoned 911 and tried to resuscitate the little girl. Iyanna was taken to Cranbrook hospital, then transferred to Alberta Children’s Hospital, where she was taken off life support the following day. An autopsy found injuries to the top and side of Iyanna’s head

and to her mouth. Swanson told Judge Mrozinski that Crown cannot prove Bouvette caused those injuries or the drowning, but said that Bouvette’s failure to protect the child amounted to a wanton disregard for her safety. Defense counsel Jesse Gelber said Bouvette was suffering from anxiety and depression at the time of Iyanna’s death, and pointed out that Bouvette pleaded guilty to criminal negligence at the first chance she had. Judge Mrozinski will hand down her sentencing decision about the case on Thursday, May 16 in Cranbrook.

Stephanek said there is no one man behind the soup kitchen. Drew Westergaard, the Pastor for the church, Nick Turner and Harry Mackenzie are also the ones who helped make the soup kitchen idea a reality. However, almost everyone at the church is involved with the program, switching out times at the kitchen and volunteering their time to provide soup for the less fortunate. “If anyone is behind it, that’s God,” Stephanek said. The inspiration for the soup kitchen came from an unlikely place. Pastor Westergaard said that a homeless man and traveller named David knocked on the door of the church on a couple of occasions asking for something to eat.

Things you can’t say in elections Another election campaign has come and gone, with the ritual posturing of political parties and most news media searching for anything they can portray as a conflict. Now comes the time to wonder why not enough people cared, or informed themselves about the real problems of running this $40 billion corporation called the B.C. government. Why would they, when the whole thing is presented as a combination of beauty contest and sports event, with endless discussion of polls and “attack ads” and who’s ahead and what’s the score? Again we have seen the truth of former prime minister Kim Campbell’s observation that elections are no time to talk about serious issues. Indeed, there are some things you can’t speak of at all. Peace River North MLA Pat Pimm caused a stir at a candidates’ debate when he referred to constituents’ concerns that disabled children can cause difficulties in classrooms. He didn’t say classrooms should be segregated, although that’s a discussion worth having. He didn’t deny the need for more support for special needs kids. But his opponents immediately portrayed it that way, and media seized on the conflict despite the factual inaccuracy.

West Vancouver-Capilano MLA Ralph Sultan had a similar experience when he referred to his study of poverty in that affluent area. He noted that there was a high correlation between single parenthood and kids in poverty. Picking on single mums, his detractors exclaimed, and that’s what got reported. The B.C. Conservatives kicked their Boundary-Similkameen candidate BC VIEWS out of the party because he wrote an article saying Tom women shouldn’t choose to Fletcher be single mothers. You can talk about child poverty, as long as you only discuss it based on federal statistics that do not measure poverty. Christy Clark started doing this as soon as she became B.C. Liberal leader, one of several issues where she dispensed with the facts and tried to copy a popular NDP stance instead. She was all about families, which can of course be single people, single parents or pretty well anything you want them to be. In fact the decline of the traditional family and the abdication of responsibility by many parents, fathers in particular, are central factors in the problem of poor and neglected children. But you can’t talk about that, at least not during elections. Whole areas of political discussion have devolved into euphemisms that are chosen because they can’t be defined. Every-


body’s in favour of “affordable housing,” for instance. What they won’t admit is that this is code for subsidized housing, because then they would have to talk about how much the subsidy is, and who has to pay for it. Good grief, that might raise the question of whether the state should be taking money away from some people and giving it to others so they can live where they otherwise couldn’t afford to live. We even have rules preventing the media from reporting polls on election day. People might be influenced by this, you see. If you tell them Party X is far ahead, they might stay home and mow the lawn instead. If you tell them someone is making a comeback, they might change their vote because they want to be on the winning side, or the one that has “momentum.” Just like any other sport. The news media are steadily losing influence with the public. There are many factors involved, including the vast array of information sources that are available at most people’s fingertips. Another factor is treating the public like they’re idiots. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and

Cranbrook youth attend cancer forum What’s Up? Submit ted

On Saturday, May 11, 75 youth gathered at a Youth Forum in Vancouver to learn about cancer prevention and build skills to take action on relevant health and cancer prevention issues, becoming part of a larger movement fighting for a world where no Canadian fears cancer. Early last April, the Canadian Cancer Society, B.C. and Yukon, called on youth from across B.C. to take a stand against cancer in their communities — and they answered. The 75 young leaders, between the ages of 19 and 25, participated in the day-long forum to discuss what healthy communities look like and how to get involved. There were opportunities to learn and share, to network and see a broader vision for global change. “The Canadian Cancer Society is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year,” said Amber Hay, Cancer Control Coordinator, Canadian Cancer Society, BC and Yukon. “We feel that if we equip our future leaders of change with some tools to make a difference in their communities, we can set the stage for the next 75 years of cancer prevention.” Designed by youth, for youth, the Forum featured pre-

Throughout the day, forum attendees were encouraged to contribute to a multimedia ‘board’ (photos, videos, etc) where they could share their ideas on health and healthy communities. The youth also participated in sessions featur-

ing topics on influencing public policy, tobacco control and indoor tanning and practiced goal setting and planning concepts to put their ideas in motion. A total of 15 youth from the Southern Interior attended the Forum, including Jenny Byford, 21, from Cranbrook. “As a member of the Forum’s Youth Advisory Committee I had been counting down to the forum for months and it by far exceeded my expectations,” Byford said. “The opportunity to network and share ideas with

75 other young adults who are true leaders within their communities goes unmatched. “We know about 50 per cent of cancers can be prevented and with the support of youth involvement in advocacy for healthy public policy, education of environmental carcinogens, and individual behaviour change, we can significantly reduce our population’s cancer risk. The forum took place at the Simon Fraser University, Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue in Vancouver.

3-D guns point the way to the future


he story so far: Cody Wilson, who describes himself as a “crypto-anarchist” and almost certainly wears a Second Amendment belt-buckle, had a bright idea early last year. No government could ever oppress its people again, reasoned the 25-year-old law student at the University of Texas, if everybody in the world was able to manufacture their own guns at home. Well, not everybody in the world, exactly, but at least everybody with $8,000 to buy a 3D printer on e-Bay, or access to one of the 3D printing shops that are springing up in major cities. So Wilson set out to design a gun made entirely of high-density ABS plastic that could be printed on a standard 3D machine. He printed and tested it, and last week he made the blueprints available online. For those who are not clear on the concept (the rest may proceed in an orderly manner to the next paragraph), a 3D printer is basically a photocopying machine that sprays molten plastic instead of ink. But instead of doing only one layer on a sheet of paper, it does thousands of layer, one on top of the other, until it has formed a fully three-dimensional object. Like a gun. There are not all that many 3D printers in circulation yet, but they are the Next Big Thing, and in five or ten years they may be as common as mobile phones. It would appear that a great many people are looking forward to that happy day, because in the first week after Wilson up-

loaded the blueprints for his gun, 100,000 people downloaded them. Wilson is one of those political innocents on the libertarian right who truly believe that governments would behave better if everybody had a gun. He even calls his plastic pistol the “Liberator”. He presumably hasn’t noticed that the United States government carries on collecting Gwynne heavy taxes and crushing the spirit of free enterprise Dyer even though most Americans already have guns. Predictably, last Friday the U.S. government mobilized to shut his little enterprise down. The Office of Defense Trade Controls Compliance at the State Department wrote Wilson’s company, Defense Distributed, demanding that his designs for a 3D gun be “removed from public access” until he proves that he has not broken the laws that govern the shipment of weapons overseas. (Is he really shipping weapons overseas? Don’t bother us with details.) But the genie is well and truly out of the bottle. There have not only been 100,000 downloads from Wilson’s own site. It has also been uploaded onto Pirate Bay (with no protest from him), and downloads from that site are going through the roof. So what does all this mean? It doesn’t mean that terrorists are more dangerous; they have never had any trouble in getting their hands on weapons a lot more lethal than a single-shot pistol. It does mean that people can now make

weapons that will not be detected by this generation of airport metal detectors, so it may soon take even longer to get on the plane. But that was going to happen pretty soon anyway. What Cody Wilson has actually done is provide us with a useful wake-up call about the huge economic and security implications of this powerful new technology. The 3D printers will get better, faster and cheaper, and they will be able to produce much more impressive weapons. Forget about banning assault weapons; people will be able to make them at home. More importantly, they will also be able to 3D-print almost any other mass-produced item whose components are less than a metre (three feet) long. This not only has serious implications for retailers of such items — the Wal-Marts of the world — but also for entire countries whose economy depends heavily on manufacturing and exporting items of this sort. Even the cheapest labour is probably more expensive than 3D printing. So “outsourcing” will go out of fashion, but the impact of 3D printing on traditional employment patterns in the developed countries will be just as severe. Cars will continue to be built on (highly automated) assembly lines, but the most of the companies in the supply chain will collapse as the car manufacturers start printing the parts themselves as and when they need them. Here comes the future again. Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist based in London

Knights win OHL title, set stage for Memorial Cup C ANADIAN PRESS

LONDON, Ont. - Bo Horvat lifted the London Knights to their second straight Ontario Hockey league championship by the slimmest of margins. Horvat scored his second goal of the game with 0.1 seconds left to play as the Knights defeated the Barrie Colts 3-2 in Game 7 of the OHL final on Monday. Alex Broadhurst directed the puck toward the Barrie net and it came loose close in the crease for Horvat to slip past goalie Mathias Niederberger. The goal - at 19:59 - required a video review to confirm both the time remaining and whether the puck actually crossed the line. “You dream as a kid about scoring a goal like that in a Game 7,” said Horvat. “I knew I had to get to the net and look for a rebound.” Horvat, who also scored 7:13 of the first period to open the scoring, finished the series with seven goals and four assists, and was named the winner of the 99 Trophy as playoff MVP. Horvat had 16 goals and seven assists in 21 playoff contests. “It’s unbelievable to win the 99 Trophy,” Horvat said. “I’m humbled to have my name going on that trophy with all the other great names. I certainly couldn’t have done it without all the

other guys in our room.” London becomes the first back-to-back OHL champions since the Windsor Spitfires in 2009 and 2010. Last year, the Knights lost in the Memorial Cup final in overtime, 2-1 to Shawinigan. Despite the tension during the video review, London captain Scott Harrington said he gradually became confident of the outcome. “The longer the time for the review went on, the better the chance I knew it would be a good goal,” said Harrington, a Pittsburgh Penguins prospect.

“It’s unbelievable to win the 99 Trophy. I’m humbled to have my name going on that trophy with all the other great names. ” Bo Horvat Andreas Athanasiou had scored midway through the first for Barrie to even it 1-1. The former Knight had a yawning cage to fire the puck into after a terrific pass from Zach Hall. It would be Barrie’s lone power-play opportunity. Olli Maatta’s power-play goal in the second period restored the London lead. The blue-liner had left his point position and received a pass from Broadhurst before beating Niederberger. London maintained its 2-1 advantage until Mitchell Theoret’s 14th of the playoffs at 17:09 of the third created the electric finish in front of 9,046 at the Budweiser Gardens. The tension included a Barrie shot off the crossbar with just over two minutes remaining. The Knights now join host Saskatoon Blades, WHL champion Portland Winterhawks and QMJHL winners Halifax Mooseheads at the Memorial Cup, which begins Friday with the Blades entertaining London in the tourney opener.

Canada edges Slovenia in extra frame DONNA SPENCER Canadian Press

STOCKHOLM, Sweden - A lapse of concentration in their most recent game aside, the Canadians have melded into a contending team at the IIHF World Championship on little preparation. Canada heads into Thursday’s quarter-final game with firepower on offence, an improving blue-line and goaltending capable of getting wins. The quarter-final has been Canada’s stumbling block in this tournament with losses in the last three consecutive years. “We realize that,” forward Steven Stamkos said. “The last three years, I think, have been early exits and it’s not going to get any easier.” Canada awaits the conclusion of the preliminary round Tuesday to confirm its quarter-final opponent. Montreal Canadiens

defenceman P.K. Subban was added to the team Monday and will play in the quarter-final. A 4-3 overtime win over relegated Slovenia on Monday gave Canada 18 points from five wins, an overtime win and a shootout loss in the round robin. Unbeaten Switzerland was one point back with a game in hand. The Swiss need just a point Tuesday against Belarus to secure first place. The top four countries in each group advance to the quarter-finals with one playing four and two facing three. Host Sweden (4-2) will finish third in Canada’s pool. Tuesday’s game between the Czech Republic and Norway will determine the fourth quarter-finalist in Stockholm. The United States, Finland and Russia will finish top four in Helsinki, but Tuesday will determine their seed-

The fourth and final playoff berth in that pool was still up for grabs between Slovakia, Germany, France and Latvia. Canada’s team game improved each of the first five games. The sixth, Sunday’s 2-1 win over the Czech Republic, lacked the offensive fireworks of the previous games. Canada would finish no worse than second in their pool Monday regardless of the

outcome against Slovenia, ranked No. 18 in the world and already relegated to the second-tier world championship next year. The Canadians sleepwalked through the first period and trailed by two goals against the Slovenians who came ready to compete. “Obviously you don’t want to start a game like that,” Stamkos said. “If you do against the next oppo-

nent, you’re probably going to be going home.” Matt Duchene and Brenden Dillon scored Canada’s other goals. Devan Dubynk, who rotated with Mike Smith in Canada’s net, made 17 saves for his fourth win of the tournament. Smith faced the tougher opponents in the round robin with wins against the Czechs and Swedes and a shootout loss to Switzerland.

Wild soccer squad returns from U.S. tournament TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Mount Baker Wild girls soccer team returned with a different result in each of their trio of games at a tournament in Couer d’Alene over the weekend, posting a win, a tie, and a loss. The squad made their annual appearance at the Bill Eisenwinter Hot Shots tournament, a huge event that draws over 200 teams from around the northwestern U.S. in various age divisions, according to Wild head coach Jimmy Robinson. The Wild’s first game on Saturday was a dominant affair for the Mount Baker girls, however, the match ended in a tie against a squad out of Pullman, WA. “It was controlling, it was our pace, it was our style, it felt really good, and that’s what I think went wrong, if you will, because we got too lethargic, too unfocused,”

said Robinson, “and the other team got a garbage goal so it ended up 1-1, but it definitely should’ve been our win.” Mount Baker followed up with a 2-0 loss against a team that was the toughest they’ve faced all season, which came in from Bozeman in Montana. “They were a big, strong, fast, skilled team,” said Robinson. “They were one of the best teams we’ve played all year and it got a little rough, it got a little intense, but it was good because I was telling the girls that’s exactly what we’re going to see when we’re down in North Van [Provincials] so we ended up losing that one 2-0 but we played very, very well.” The Mount Baker went into Sunday with one more match against a team out of Helena, and came together to pull out a 1-0 win in what was a pretty aggressive match, said

Jordyn Lee, a midfielder with the Wild squad. “Jimmy said we had nothing to lose, so we might as well leave it all out there,” Lee said. “He told us to just go out

there and have fun— win or lose—and it was a competitive game that we all just wanted to win.” Robinson added that the team was very composed after their tough loss the day before, and a few changes to the game plan also helped out. “We switched a few things up formation-wise and it seemed to work very, very well,”

Robinson said. Lee said that even though the game got a little rough, her team was able to stay in the game. “Our last game, they were aggressive and getting really frustrated—the ref was really good about calling it both ways—but we managed to keep up with them and kick up our aggressiveness as well,” Lee said.

Wild soccer team hosting skills camp TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Mount Baker senior girls soccer team is organizing a one-day camp for Grade 5 and Grade 6 students as a fundraiser for their trip to provincials at the end of the month. The girls will work with the kids all day with a morning and afternoon session teaching skills and passing on their soccer smarts to their young charges.

“[Things like] trapping, passing, how to get open and create space, and then we’ll have mini-scrimmage games and stuff like that,” said Jordyn Lee, a Grade 12 student who plays centre midfield for the squad. Lunch will be provided by Boston Pizza, and kids will receive a T-shirt, which is covered by a $50 registration fee. After the afternoon session, the Wild soccer team will end the day

with an alumni match against former Wild soccer players. The camp will be at Mount Baker Secondary School on Saturday, May 25, with thiscoming Thursday (May 16th) as the registration deadline. Any Grade 5 or Grade 6 students interested in attending the camp can talk to their elementary school principals, which should have registration information.

Boston completes comeback, beat Leafs in OT Neil Davidson Canadian Press

BOSTON - Patrice Bergeron scored at 6:05 of overtime to complete a miraculous Boston comeback as the Bruins rallied to oust the Toronto Maple Leafs from the playoffs with a nail-biting 5-4 victory in Game 7 Monday night. Bergeron, with his second of the night, ended it as the Bruins blitzed the Toronto goal. The Leafs could not clear the puck and the Bruins forward snapped home a shot. Two late goals in the space of 31 seconds by Boston’s Milan Lucic and Bergeron, with goalie Tuukka Rask off for the extra attacker, shockingly tied the game up at 4-4. It had looked like two early goals by defenceman Cody Franson had been enough to propel Toronto into the next round of the playoffs. The Leafs led 4-1 midway through the third period when

the Bruins started pulling rabbits out of their hat with three unanswered goals - the last two with the clock running out. It marked the first time the Bruins have come back from a three-goal deficit in a playoff game since April 11, 1990, when they trailed the Hartford Whalers by a 5-2 score in the third period but went on to win 6-5. “We played extremely hard for six games. That 55 minutes (in Game 7) we threw everything we had at them. It’s just an extremely disappointing loss,” said a muted Dion Phaneuf. The Bruins will face the Rangers in the second round after New York shut out the Washington Capitals 5-0 in another Game 7 Monday. The capacity crowd, which had been disgruntled most of the night, partied as it waited for an overtime peri-

od that never seemed in the cards. Leading 2-1 entering the third period, Phil Kessel added an insurance goal at 2:09, poking in the puck into a gaping goal after Nazem Kadri hit the post. Kessel’s fourth goal of the post-season was helped by a Bruins giveaway. Kadri then scored on a two-one-one, banging home Kessel’s rebound at 5:29 to seemingly hammer another nail in the Boston

coffin. At the other end, James Reimer seemed to have got into the Bruins’ heads until Nathan Horton swept in a pass from Lucic, who swooped behind the net and then got the puck through traffic to his linemate to cut the lead to 4-2 at 9:18. That sparked a late flurry by the Bruins and Lucic, stuffing in the puck from in close, scored with 1:22 remaining. Then Bergeron beat Reimer

WASHINGTON - Led by Henrik Lundqvist’s 35 saves in a second consecutive shutout, and goals from some unlikely sources, the New York Rangers beat the Washington Capitals 5-0 in Game 7 Monday night to reach the Eastern Conference semifinals. New York contained

HEAT 88 BULLS 65 CHICAGO - LeBron James scored 27 points and the Miami Heat nearly matched a franchise record for points allowed in a playoff game, pounding the listless and short-handed Chicago Bulls 88-65 on Monday night to take a 3-1 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

The 65 points allowed were only two more than the all-time post-season low for a Miami opponent, and it was easily the worst offensive performance by a Chicago team. Never before had the Bulls scored fewer than 69 in a playoff game nor 10 or less in a quarter during the post-season, but both those marks fell on a night when they were dominated on

Man United fans celebrate Premier League title MANCHESTER, England - Tens of thousands of Manchester United fans lined the streets on Monday to celebrate their team’s 20th English league title and catch another glimpse of manager Alex Ferguson before he retires. Jubilant United players were spending a second day with the Premier League trophy after lifting it Sunday following the 2-1 win over Swansea - Ferguson’s final game at Old Trafford after nearly 27 years in charge. A custom-designed, open-top bus bearing a “Champions 2013” logo set off from the stadium under overcast skies and wound its way through the packed streets in a parade that will last more than an hour before arriving at Albert Square in the centre of the city. “Yesterday was a day I’ll never forget,” said Ferguson, who waved a United flag in front of supporters before the bus departed. “All my family will never forget. “On behalf of all my players, thanks for all your support.” Associated Press

Some 20 Bruins had already experienced a Game 7, with a combined total of 105 Game 7s between them. As a franchise, the Bruins were 12-11 in Game 7s (11-7 on home ice) compared to 12-9 for Toronto (5-8 on the road).

Now the Heat will try to wrap up the series at home on Wednesday night, taking what they hope will be the next step toward a second straight championship. Carlos Boozer had 14 points and 12 rebounds for the injured and short-handed Bulls. GRIZZLIES 103 THUNDER 97, OT MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Tony Allen scored on a driving layup to open overtime and Memphis held off Oklahoma City to push the defending Western

Conference champions to the edge of elimination. The Grizzlies shook off a first half in which they couldn’t hit shots and the Thunder seemingly couldn’t miss in building their largest lead in this series at 17 points. But the Grizzlies have yet to lose on their home court this post-season, and they won their third straight and seventh in eight games to grab a 3-1 lead in the series. Game 5 is Wednesday night in Oklahoma City. The Grizzlies outscored the Thunder 9-3 in overtime. Kevin Durant scored 27 points but missed all five of his shots in overtime.

New York ahead in the first period, before Taylor Pyatt and Michael Del Zotto made it 3-0 early in the second on goals 2:10 apart. Ryan Callahan added a goal 13 seconds into the third period, and when Mats Zuccarello scored with about 13 1/2 minutes remaining, thousands of red-clad fans streamed to the exits.

We are doing this with full honesty and respect for each other. The main problem is that the dating success is not equal. I found it easier to get a date. Whereas, my husband is having a tremendous degree of difficulty. He has online dating profiles, but no luck. I am seeing someone who is a wonderful person, but I want my husband to experience new things along with me. Open marriage is still considered taboo, and it is extremely important to my husband and me that we are honest about our marital status with any prospective date. Even though he is happy for me, I feel compelled to help him. But I’m not sure how to do it without overstepping unspoken boundaries. -- Open but Lost Dear Open: Are you sure your husband wants this as much as you do? He may have agreed to the arrangement only to please you. We think you need to have this discussion again and let your commitment to honesty lead the way. Ask your husband whether he is truly happy with the idea of an open marriage and, if so, what you can do to make things easier for him. Marriage, “open” or otherwise, requires the ability to communicate. Dear Annie: Would you please address the distinction between “dinner” and “supper”? I’ve heard many people refer to the evening meal as dinner, but the definition of an evening meal is supper. I even heard a prominent newscaster refer to the president as sitting down with a guest at the White House for “dinner” tonight, but if they are sitting down at night, it is clearly supper. -- Stickler in the South Dear Stickler: In most parts of the U.S. and Canada, these words are used interchangeably. However, there are regional distinctions, which might explain why this bothers you so much. According to most definitions, “dinner” refers to the main meal of the day. Back in the Middle Ages, people often ate the main meal at lunchtime. Now we tend to eat it much later, but it is still called “dinner” regardless of the time. “Supper” refers to a lighter meal taken later in the evening and is often used interchangeably with “tea.” The word “dinner” also is used when referring to a formal meal or banquet (hence the president’s dinners), and “supper” is always a less formal affair. We hope that answers your question. Thanks for the change of pace. Dear Annie: In response to “Wife of the Plumber,” I have only one thing to say: Get out while the gettin’ is good! Her husband is a total narcissist, and nothing is going to change him. Narcissists are superb at conning people, especially those who love them. We are the ones they treat the worst, because we have that unrealistic hope that given time things will improve. After almost half a century, I can attest to the fact that no matter how many chances you give, no matter how many promises they make and no matter how much you love them or how hard you work, it will never change. They see nothing wrong with themselves. It is always the other person’s fault. They will not seek help. I urge her not to throw her life away on someone who will never be there for her. I hoped too much and loved too strongly, and although still legally married, I have finally reached the point of emotionally withdrawing from my self-made prison. If leaving is not feasible, she needs to protect herself and her children from the extreme damage that is done by living with this type of person. And get counseling. -- Been There, Done That and Escaped Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Nice bunch of ghosts Happy Mom’s Day to all the mothers living on earth and to the entire mothers in Heaven. Happy Mother’s Day, Mom, I love you. Hi Wendy: I was wondering if you could tell me if I have any ghosts in my house. We moved in two years ago and I still hear footsteps going into the basement and when I am working in the kitchen I hear shuffling noises upstairs. Yesterday, I heard a door slam upstairs and the kids were in school. This is why I am sending you this email. The door slamming makes me feel a bit creepy about living in this house. Nothing has happened to the children and we all like the house. My husband just laughs it off but I am now concerned. What do you think? Do we need to be worried about any of these ghosts? Scared Mother Dear Scared Mother: Don’t be afraid, Mom, the entities in your home will definitely not hurt you, your children or you husband. We feel that you have at least four entities in your home. Please be aware, as I have said before, these entities did not move in when the house was built. These entities were living on the land before the house was built. I see a little boy running around upstairs and that is the footsteps you hear. The door slamming is just his way of saying please notice that I am here. So, when you hear the footsteps upstairs or if the door does slam again just yell up to him and acknowledge that you know he is in the house with you. What will happen is he will eventually quiet down and then if he thinks you are not paying attention to him he will start making noises again. Thereare also a man and a woman in the basement of your place and these are the footsteps you hear. They keep walking up and down the stairs especially more in the evening. I think they are

ASK WENDY Wendy Evano brother and sister and they died quite suddenly in one lifetime. The other entity that we see is a very old woman who likes to sit in your living room and look out the window to the street. She likes watching the cars go by and the children playing and the busy activity that you have on your street. She also likes to go into each of the children’s bedrooms and watch over them at night. I think you have a nice bunch of entities living in your home with you and I would not worry about them at all. Just once in a while acknowledge that they are there and they will be very happy. This means talk to them whenever you get a chance or you think about it. What human or entity likes to be ignored living or dead. Some people feel really silly when I tell them to do this when they have entities in their home acting up. However, when they finally decide to give it a try they have all come back and confirmed to me that the noise levels were quite drastically lower. Some people have also told me that they like the feeling of entities around them; it makes them feel safer. I as well like all the entity activity that goes around in my home but then I have always seen and been used to seeing entities, angels, guides my entire life since I have been a child. We hope this information has helped you and you will try our suggestion. We sincerely pray that you can live in harmony with these wonderful entities living in your home. Wendy For personal and over the phone readings contact Wendy @ 4262127. Need some answers about the paranormal or of this plane then contact me @ wevano@shaw. ca or write to me at the Townsman.

One Hundred and eighty local grade four students were invited to attend the annual cross-cultural day that was hosted and organized by community members of St. Mary’s Indian Band. The students had a glimpse of several traditional activities of the Ktunaxa people. Some activities included an ethno- botany walk, legend telling, tipi raising, traditional stick games and a visit to the interpretive center. The day created new friendships and was rewarding for all participants. Pictured above: Everyone took an active part in the Friendship Dance.

Clark, Dix in race to campaign finish line Tom Fletcher Black Press

As NDP leader Adrian Dix set out on a 24hour bus-and-airplane marathon from Prince George to Vancouver Monday, B.C. Liberal leader Christy Clark dropped in on Vancouver Island and Metro Vancouver constituencies in the last day of the B.C. election campaign. Both party leaders planned to end their final push in their home constituencies in Vancouver, with polls open at 8 a.m. Tuesday for an election where they are far ahead of their B.C.

Conservative and Green Party competitors. “We are neck and neck with the NDP,” Clark said at a lunchtime stop at a yogurt bar in Saanich Monday. She pleaded with supporters to get voters out to support B.C. Liberal candidate Rishi Sharma, who is in an uphill battle against NDP incumbent Lana Popham. Provincially, a wide NDP lead in polls has been reduced to single digits in the last two weeks. Clark started her lastday tour with a visit to a North Saanich seniors’

home, introducing residents to her son Hamish and local candidate Stephen Roberts. After the yogurt bar stop, her campaign bus headed to Oak Bay-Gordon Head, where incumbent cabinet minister Ida Chong is in a three-way battle with NDP candidate Jessica Van deer Veen and Green Party candidate Andrew Weaver. Dix’s round-theclock push is unprecedented in modern B.C. politics. It started Monday morning in Comox, with flights to Kam-

loops, Williams Lake, Prince George and Penticton, then a bus trip through Keremeos, Hedley, Princeton, Hope, Langley, Richmond, a 4:30 a.m. breakfast in Vancouver, a stop at a Burnaby fire hall and finally a rally at Dix’s Vancouver-Kingsway campaign office. B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins and B.C. Green Party leader Jane Sterk spent the final day of their campaigns in their home constituencies, Langley for Cummins and Victoria for Sterk. Aggressive as ever, Clark suggested Dix was putting on a last-minute push because he’s desperate that his lead has slipped away. Dix responded that the 24hour tour has been in the works since the beginning of the monthlong campaign.

Chris Hadfield floats in a most peculiar way while singing David Bowie’s ‘Space Oddity.’


Astronaut bows out of space station with music video of Bowie’s ‘Space Oddity’


Marcia Dunn Associated Press

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — In a high-flying, perfectly pitched first, an astronaut on the International Space Station is bowing out of orbit with a musical video: his own custom version of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity.’’ It’s believed to be the first music video made in space, according to NASA. Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield’s personalized rendition of “Space Oddity’’ was posted on YouTube on Sunday, one day before his departure from the orbiting lab. He’s wrapping up a five-month mission that began last December. His return aboard a Russian Soyuz capsule, along with American Thomas Marshburn and Russian Roman Romanenko, was set for late Monday in Kazakhstan. Hadfield, 53, a longtime guitarist who played in an astronaut rock ‘n’ roll band, recorded the video throughout the space station. “With deference to the genius of David Bowie, here’s Space Oddity, recorded on Station. A last glimpse of the World,’’ Hadfield said via Twitter.

The spaceman altered some of the lyrics of Bowie’s 1969 version, singing “Planet Earth is blue and there’s nothing left to do.’’ The Bowie version goes “... and there’s nothing I can do.’’ And instead of “Take your protein pills and put your helmet on,’’ it became, “Lock your Soyuz hatch and put your helmet on.’’ Planet Earth provided a stunning backdrop for many of the scenes. Hadfield, an engineer and former test pilot from Milton, Ontario, was Canada’s first professional astronaut to live aboard the space station and became the first Canadian in charge of a spacecraft. He relinquished command of the space station on Sunday. The five-minute video posted Sunday drew a salute from Bowie’s official Facebook page: “It’s possibly the most poignant version of the song ever created.’’ One of the video collaborators was piano arranger Emm Gryner, part of the Bowie band in 1999 and 2000. “Planet Earth IS blue,’’ she said in her online blog, “and there’s nothing left for Chris Hadfield to do. Right. Safe travels home Commander!’’
