Trial deer-hazing in Marysville goes well Deer moved in Marysville on Wednesday

C AROLYN GR ANT editor@dailybulletin.ca

While most people in Marysville were still in bed, or enjoying their morning coffee, two border collies — Bob and Tess — were moving deer. There was no fuss, no muss, no stampede — just a group of deer moving out of town under the guidance of two very well trained dogs. Kimberley’s onetime only trial with aversive conditioning of urban deer took place on Wednesday morning, May 29, 2013. It was kept purposely low-key, with only a few deer committee members, the provincial government biologist Irene Teske, and Coun. Darryl Oakley along to watch as John Zehnder and Margie Jamieson let their dogs do their thing. “It went well,” Zehnder said. “We did a group of deer at Bootleg Gap and then up towards the transfer station. I think the people watching learned a lot and got a good understanding of how it works.” This was a trial only, allowed under special

permission from the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources. The deer removed today will return to town. A full aversive conditioning program will require repetition of today’s events until the deer understand they will not be bothered out of town. “We condition the deer to know that town is not a good place to be,” Jamieson said. “Out of town is the safe zone and the pressure is off.” “The deer see the town as a shelter from predators and as a food source,” Zehnder. “They feel comfortable here.” “In a sense what you do with the dogs is introduce a predator to their safety zone,” Jamieson said. Both stress that this is a non-traumatic way to move deer. “The deer move from the dogs, but they are allowed the freedom to move in the

right direction,” Jamieson said. “We are taking advantage of a natural instinct,” Zehnder said. “These deer saw the dogs, their ears went up and they were ready to

move.” The dogs are off leash, but Zehnder says they are on a ‘verbal leash’. “They have total recall. You can call them off at any point. They

will stop on a dime.” “We can direct their movement right or left,” Jamieson said. “What was evident today was not control over the deer but control over the direction they go. It

works like a funnel with the dogs working the flanks, keeping the deer directed. For the deer, the right direction is the easiest option.” “We want them to feel as if they are being

hunted,” Zehnder said. “That’s why the dogs are off lease. We can put as much pressure on them as required by the situation.” See HAZING, page 3

The Kimberley Primary Health Care Center in conjunction with the Heart Failure program was able to obtain a HOLTER MONITOR through funds donated by the family of the late Mr. Mike Amantea. A holter monitor allows clients to wear a small device that will continuously record and detect all heart rhythms over a 24 hr period. This assists physicians with the diagnosis and treatment of arrhythmias that can cause dizziness, black outs, irregular beating of the heart and also evaluate the effectiveness of heart medications they are presently on. It is a welcome addition to the presently offered services provided to the residents of Kimberley. Above, Catherine Blake, RN with the heart failure program and Maria Amantea, wife of Mike).

Hazing trial deemed a success From Page 1 Both Zehnder and Jamieson have previous experience with hazing, or aversive conditioning. They have worked in national park areas such as Banff and Waterton. They acknowledge that what is being done in Kimberley is the first of its kind. “It’s never been done outside of a national park before,” Jamieson said. “It’s never been done in a municipality,” Zehnder said. “This is a first. It’s a pretty significant trial.” However, both say aversive conditioning, no matter how successful, will only work in certain parts of town, and must be part of a multipronged approach to problems with urban deer. “We’ve seen it work, but it’s one prong,” Jamieson said. “There is also

education, fencing, non-feeding.” “And there is culling,” Zehnder said. “I like to promote a more selective cull.” Jamieson agrees. “Instead of a massive cull, you target the problem deer. If you kill 100 deer and don’t get the four aggressive ones, you haven’t solved your problem.” Both say that for a trial run, Marsyville is an ideal set up with crown land on the edges rather than acreages and farms. “We really do want to acknowledge Gary Glinz and Sherry Shrieves from the Deer Committee and Darryl Oakley. They really worked hard for this. They didn’t just get permission for a trial, they are looking to change legislation.” “It’s very progressive thinking,” Zehnder said.

Getting the dogs on the scent up at the transfer station

A rupture in a wastewater pipe in the worst possible location has forced the City of Cranbrook to pull $1 million out of a reserve fund. “This is a one million dollar surprise,” said Mayor Wayne Stetski. The burst pipe is located out at the city’s spray irrigation fields in Mayook – 20 feet beneath the newly renovated pumphouse building. The 24-inch pipe carries wastewater from one of the two lagoons at the spray fields to the pumphouse, from which it is dispersed through pivots to irrigate the 2,200acre property. Unfortunately, a worst-case scenario came about this spring when city staff learnt

that the 40-year-old pipe was leaking, and had been for some time. “It started off as probably just a pin hole leak and we don’t know how long it has been leaking, but we know it’s probably been leaking at least five years if not more,” Chief Administrative Officer Wayne Staudt told city council on Monday, May 27. Even worse than the tricky location of the burst pipe is that years of leaking wastewater created a sink hole underneath the pumphouse building, which contains hundreds of thousands of dollars in technology. “This leakage then washed away and took the ground under the building, which was primarily gravel, and all that gravel is now

moved out,” said Staudt. What’s more, the city discovered the problem at the worst possible time of year – early spring, when the lagoons are at their peak height. “We were right at the beginning of the season, when the ponds out there are at their maximum levels, and we’ve got to move that wastewater out onto the pivots and the spray irrigation. So it’s not something we could delay. We needed to move quickly so that we don’t exceed our limits,” said Staudt. To repair the 15 feet of burst pipe and stabilize the building, work that is now almost complete, staff had to use directional drilling to get at the problem 20 feet below ground. See Page 5

Cranbrook wants more options for deer issues Arne Petryshen Townsman Staff

Cranbrook Council voted to move a motion forward that asks the province to amend wildlife management regulations to reflect urban wildlife populations. Coun. Bob Whetham put forward the draft motion, which says that current regulations don’t address human-wildlife conflicts in urban areas and lacks the flexibility needed to develop new approaches. The motion asks that the province authorize a person to use alternative wildlife management techniques if the regional manager considers it necessary for the proper management of the wildlife. “This is an outcome of one of the meetings we had with the deer committee,� Coun.

Whetham explained. “It was pointed out by a wildlife biologist that all the regulations we have in place right now were really designed to address the issue of addressing deer populations specifically in the rural areas.� Whetham said there is no framework for managing deer in the urban areas. He said the city should ask the province to amend those regulations in order to be able to look at experimental management techniques. “As long as we’re contained within that framework we really don’t have options,� he said. “We need to be able to change those regulations in order for those wildlife managers to be able to give us permits for something like this.� See Page 5

Cranbrook plans BC Senior Games bid for 2015 or 2016

Games bring economic benefit to host communities Arne Petryshen Townsman Staff

The city is considering putting in a bid to host the 2015 or 2016 B.C. Senior Games. Council’s push will go ahead if it hears a positive endorsement from the business community. The games require a $60,000 contribution from the city, as well as $55,000 in in-kind support, to help in the costs of hosting the games. City staff recommended moving ahead with the application as long as there is support from the accommodation and tourism sector. Staff hopes for the sector can help with the development of the bid package. Mayor Wayne Stetski said the investment sounds like a good opportunity for the city. “Most recently, the benefits have been around $2 million to the communities that

have hosted them,” Stetski said. Coun. Gerry Warner said the whole thing revolves around the active involvement of the tourism sector and so council should hold off on any decisions until it hears back from tourism. “Nobody can predict the future,” Warner said. “Do we know we will get this active involvement? Things are stretched pretty tight right now.” Kevin Weaver, the city’s economic development officer said that staff is looking for some sort of formal sign off that they will support the push for the games. He said there were some concerns around the 2008 Winter Games that the tourism sector had not been engaged prior to a bid, so staff is making sure to address those concerns. Coun. Diana Scott said that there is no danger of moving ahead with the application. “I think it’s early stages yet,” Scott said. “It’s just do we want to do it or do we not want

to do it.” Scott said she thinks the investment is worth it. She alluded to the success of the Canada Cup of Curling and the B.C. Winter Games hosted by Cranbrook and Kimberley. She said the city has the volunteers and wouldn’t need as many as in the winter games. Coun. Angus Davis said he supports the move wholly and reiterated the point about these games being easier to manage. CAO Wayne Staudt said that currently the city doesn’t have the $60,000 in its five-year plan, so the council of the day in 2015 or 2016 will have to decide to add it to its five-year plan.. Davis said he knows quite a few people who participate in the senior games. “People really, really look forward to coming to these games,” Davis said. “It’s now a rough deal. It’s a good deal and I just hope that we can do it.” Warner said he agreed with making the bid as long as council is not making

its final decision at that time. Council voted to move the application forward contingent on the support and involvement of the accommodation and tourism sector.

Deer issues From Page 4 Wayne Stetski said this issue came up recently when the City of Kimberley was denied a 48-hour permit to conduct experimental hazing on its urban deer population. “If we’re going to have options for the future, we need some changes as well to the regulations,” Stetski said. Coun. Sharon Cross said there is potential to get some support from other communities to send the motion to the Union of B.C. Municipalities.

From Page 3 “The high cost of it is because everything is under the building and we have to tackle it from the side of the building, doing almost a directional drilling method that we would use if we were drilling say under a railway or something like that,” said Staudt. He added that if the pipe had not been underneath the pumphouse, repairs would have cost only around $3,000. “In hindsight you would say that wasn’t a great design we have out there, so we are going to revisit it because the infrastructure in and around that building is approaching 40 years old,” said Staudt. It’s thought that the pipe, which should have another 20 years in its lifespan, eroded because of paint inside it. “Just about the only thing they can see about why this pipe failed is that they coated it, which

was a common technique, and that coating may have been a little toxic,” said Staudt. The silver lining on the problem is that the city did not need to borrow money or raise taxes to pay for the emergency repair. On Monday, council authorized taking $650,000 out of its solid waste surplus fund, $200,000 out of its sewer surplus fund, and reassign $150,000 that would have been spent this year on upgrades at the spray irrigation fields. “I’d like to thank staff and previous councils for the foresight in establishing these reserves. We would have a serious issue on our hands – we would have to borrow money or increase taxes or utility fees if that pre-planning had not happened and those reserves had not been available,” said Mayor Wayne Stetski.

Scandals multiply by the day

I

MICHAEL DEN TANDT

n Ottawa, the opposition parties are suddenly in a jam, unlike any they’ve encountered in seven-plus years of Harper government. With so many Conservative scandals on the front burner at one time, and a limited number of allotted questions in the House of Commons, how to deal with them all? It’s a logistical nightmare. At best there’s a risk of scandal chaff setting in – targeting-system confusion, caused by excessive shrapnel in the air. At worst there’s scandal overload, followed by scandal burnout, followed by a massive scandal hangover. It’s not like it was in the Mulroney years, when the government parceled out its catastrophes at a leisurely pace, on average one a year. That was so 20th Century. In 2013 everything happens at full throttle – especially, it seems, when the wheels come off what was previously a well-oiled, ruthlessly efficient machine. Set aside for a moment the Senate expense scandal, concerning the still-unfathomable $90,000 payment to former Conservative Senator Mike Duffy from former PMO Chief of Staff Nigel Wright. Never mind the simple weirdness of the fact that Wright had to be run down, on the hoof as it were, by an intrepid and apparently fit CTV reporter, Daniele Hamamdjian, and her cameraman, Jimmy MacDonald, during a 4 a.m. jog, before he, Wright, would take his first questions about the affair. Let’s take a glance at the rest of the pack. First of course is robocalls, a pattern of gerrymandering first unearthed by my Postmedia colleagues Glen McGregor and Stephen Maher in February of last year. Last Thursday Federal Court judge Richard Mosley ruled that in the May 2, 2011 election, electoral fraud occurred in ridings nationwide, albeit not to a degree great enough to change outcomes. While he did

not point fingers at any individual or party, the judge found the perpetrator or perpetrators had access to the Conservative Party’s CIMS database. The fraud was hightech and widespread. Elections Canada continues to investigate. Next is the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency and its patronage-tainted hiring of Kevin MacAdam, a former staffer of Defence Minister Peter MacKay. Monday the Halifax Chronicle-Herald reported that a Public Service Commission draft report on the 2010 hiring was edited to delete a paragraph suggesting political interference. The edit was done at the behest of MacKay’s office, according to the account by the Chronicle-Herald’s Paul McLeod. Moving from patronage back to alleged fraud, one-time Stephen Harper appointee Arthur Porter is back in the news. Porter, whom the Harper government named chairman of the Security Intelligence Review Committee in 2010 and who resigned in 2011 following a National Post investigation into his dealings, was arrested in Panama this week and charged with fraud. As head of the SIRC, Porter had access to state secrets. Extradition proceedings are under way, the Post’s Brian Hutchinson reports. Cue the Graham Greene references. The backdrop, alongside the Duffy mess of course, has been the excruciatingly public meltdown in Toronto of the Ford brothers’ political dynasty – staunchly Conservative and pro-Harper. “People want subways and we will have subways when Stephen Harper is the prime minister,” enthused Mayor Rob Ford to the CBC in 2011. “And that’s the bottom line.” The bottom line now is that the PM’s best friend in Canada’s largest metropolis is fighting for his political life and, based on the breakneck pace of resignations from his office, losing. Breathless? Don’t be. There’s more. If

we broaden our search beyond alleged skullduggery, to bungling and incompetence, it’s a cornucopia. Here the opposition runs into difficulty, grappling as it must with relatively humdrum files such as the case of convicted spy Jeffrey Delisle. According to reporting by the Canadian Press, CSIS was aware of Delisle’s illicit activities for months before his arrest, but neglected to inform the RCMP. The Mounties first heard it from the FBI. Opposition leader Tom Mulcair pressed Public Safety Minister Vic Toews on this bit of outrageousness in the Commons Monday but, amid the din over Duff, it barely registered. Before much of this hit the news, Harper was already struggling to douse the most serious internal brushfire of his tenure, sparked by his refusal to allow social conservatives in his caucus to re-ignite debate over abortion. That hasn’t gone away. It has been eclipsed, however, by the deadly-serious peril in which the Conservative party finds itself over Senate spending, the Duffy payment, and allegations that a Conservative-controlled Senate committee soft-pedaled a report on Duffy at the behest of the PMO – a charge Harper vehemently denies. Looming in the middle distance are rumours U.S. approval of the Keystone XL pipeline, linchpin of the government’s resource strategy and once thought to be a slam dunk, is anything but. Few informed observers would rule it out. But few would rule it in, either. Rejection would be a disaster, politically for Harper and economically for Canada. All told, it has been a hellish two weeks for the government. It’s difficult to imagine a cabinet shuffle, however deep and broad, that can change this many channels.

The Glories of Rust on display What’s Up? Mike Redfern

S

elf-taught sculptor Rob Toller has a love affair with rust; rusting pipes, rusting steel mesh, rusting cogs and rods and wire and cast-off sheets of metal. “Rust creates a historical record of the material as its patina changes over time,” he explains. From such found materials, together with wood and tree bark and stone, he creates his sculptures, a recent sampling of which will be exhibited in the Gallery at Centre 64 from June 11 to July 6. Outside his back yard studio in the converted garage of the home he shares with his wife, Heather Wattie, in Blarchmont is an eclectic collection of raw materials rescued by Rob from various sites around Kimberley. It includes rock from a local quarry, wood bark from a tree in the St. Mary River, melted pig iron dumped long ago by Cominco over the bank above Mark Creek, cog wheels from a disused Tembec mill, wire brushes from a street cleaning vehicle, and

The works of Rob Toller will be on display at Centre 64 in Kimberley from June 11 to July 6. many other locally sourced materials. Inside the converted garage studio Toller transforms these materials into unique, dynamic twoand three-dimensional sculptures which evolve as he plays with the materials to see where they will go. “It’s all about curiosity, that’s what fuels me, curiosity about

what elements, textures, forms will mix,” he says. Working by hand on an anvil, using a propane forge and electric welder, the forms he creates are only limited by the capacity of this equipment to cut, bend, and polish the materials. He also has to take into account the mass of his hanging sculptures, making them light

enough to hang, and the method by which they will be attached to the hangers on the gallery walls. Starting sculpting about 12 years ago as a recreational hobby, Toller developed his skills and artistic vision to the point where he was selling his work through a Calgary outlet. However, it wasn’t

until after he and his wife moved from High River to Kimberley five years ago that he first exhibited any of his work in a public gallery. In 2011 he entered three pieces of steel sculpture in the Arts on the Edge adjudicated exhibition at Centre 64 and won a couple of major prizes as an emerging artist. He returned the next year as an established artist to carry off more top honours. The hanging committee and the jurors were wowed by his original designs and exciting combinations of materials. His upcoming solo exhibition in the Gallery at Centre 64 will feature about 20 pieces of his recent work, both free-standing 3-dimensional sculptures and 2-dimensional hanging pieces in metal, rock, and wood. The show can be seen Tuesdays through Saturdays between 1 and 5 p.m. with a catered opening reception on Saturday, June 15, to which the public is invited. Admission is free.

Election turnout rises to 58% Tom Fletcher Black Press

More that 1.8 million people voted in the May 14 provincial election, for a turnout of 58 per cent of eligible voters, up from the all-time low of 51 per cent in 2009. The 2013 turnout rebounded to the same level as the 2005 election. Going back to 1983 vote, more than 70 per cent of eligible voters cast ballots, but the turnout steadily declined after that to 55 per cent in 2001. The number of eligible voters has risen over the years with population growth. As a result, the B.C. Liberals got nearly 44,000 more votes this year than they did in 2009, with the NDP total increasing by 24,000. Overall, 161,000 more people voted in this election than four years ago.

Heat rises to the top in tourney TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Baseball season has begun as spring transitions into summer, and the Cranbrook Heat are back out on the diamonds with a strong performance at a tournament in Salmo this past weekend, where they won first place. The girls put on a strong showing in the round robin portion of the event, going undefeated with three wins and a tie. The Heat brought their game against the West Kootenay Rockers with a 6-2 victory, and carried that momentum into their second outing against the Kelowna Outlaws, winning by a whopping score of 10-1. The Heat then went up against another Okanagan team, and scored a lot of runs while downing the Kelowna Warriors 10-6, but finished up their round-robin action with a 2-2 draw against the West Kootenay Warriors.

MMA fighters Sheldon Doll and Rob Roy keep themselves sharp as they prepare for their bouts at Battle for the Border: Redemption on Saturday night at Western Financial Place.

Purchase at the ICE office or call 250-417-0322. Deadline: Friday, May 31 at 5 pm.

For the professionals, this is the calm before the storm. Local pro fighters hit the mats and practiced their technique on Monday night as they prepare for Battle for the Border: Redemption on Saturday night at Western Financial Place. Cranbrook is fielding three local pro fighters as Sheldon Doll, Rob Roy and Brandon MacArthur will step into the cage to represent their hometowns. Headlining the event is Derek Boyle, the main event from the debut of Battle for the Border last September, who defeated Aaron Armstrong in a unanimous decision. Boyle will be facing off against Eben Kaneshiro, a fighter out of the U.S. who has a record of 14-9. Another headlining event is an all-female bout between Charmaine Tweet and Amanda Bell. Tweet has a record of three wins and three losses, while Bell has only one professional fight under her belt, however, she has a 6-1 record as an amateur. Sheldon Doll, a local fighter who lost his

matchup in September, is eager to get back in the cage and prove himself. “Took a little time off after the last fight in Cranbrook and I’ve just been training my butt off two times a day, my work schedule allows me to do that and I took some time off school,” said Doll. “Just took rest time, developed some skills and progressed.” Doll is going up against Dan Walders, a fighter out of Calgary who specifically asked for a match against the Cranbrook fighter. “He just requested to fight me,” said Doll. “I guess he saw my last couple fights so he asked to fight me and I said said sure.” No matter which way the fight goes, Doll feels ready. “I’m constantly working on all my MMA skills, wrestling ju jitsu, boxing so I’ll probably mix it up and do more of a well-rounded MMA game,” Doll said. “A lot of the time I get dragged into stand-up because I love to do it, but I train everything so I’m going to be a mixed martial artist this time. Use everything facet of the game.”

Another local professional who will be stepping up into the cage is Rob Roy, who will be fighting in front of family and friends for the first time in a few years. “I haven’t fought in about two years now, so I’m looking forward to getting back in there in front of the hometown crowd,” Roy said. “Been doing a lot of stuff to prepare for it, a lot of ju jitsu, a lot of boxing. “It’s going to be fun.” Roy has three wins and five losses under his belt, but is pretty evenly matched against his opponent, Derek Clark, who has three wins and four losses on his record. Roy said he knows a bit about Clark, but is confident in his skills. “I want it to be a dogfight, tooth and nail,” Roy said. “I want it to go all over the place. We’re mixed martial artists, the fight should go everywhere. “If you want to stand up, it’s boxing, if you want to kick box, it’s kickboxing. We got MMA for a reason. Mix it up.” Tickets for Battle for the Border: Redemption are still on sale at Western Financial Place.

Blackhawks clip Red Wings in Game 7 Jay Cohen Associated Press

CHICAGO - Brent Seabrook sent a wrist shot past goalie Jimmy Howard’s glove 3:35 into overtime to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 2-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings in Game 7 of their second-round playoff series on Wednesday night. The Blackhawks, who had the best record in the NHL regular season, rallied from a 3-1 series deficit to reach the Western Conference finals against the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings. For just the second time in NHL history, the final four teams remaining in the playoffs are the four most recent Stanley Cup winners. Chicago captured the Cup in 2010. Seabrook picked up a loose puck and skated in on Howard through the middle of the ice, with Detroit defenceman Niklas Kronwall in front of him. His shot hit Kronwall’s leg before it sailed into the left side of the net for the defenceman’s first goal of the post-season. “I don’t know if I saw it go in to be honest,” Seabrook said. “I just

heard the horn going and the boys jumping out. It was a pretty exhausting game, but I think I was more tired during the celebration with guys jumping and pushing me in the face and dragging me down. “It’s exciting. You don’t get to do that too many times.” The sellout crowd of 22,103 roared as Seabrook skated over to the boards and was mobbed by his delirious teammates. Howard put his arm around Kronwall, who was down on one knee, and tried to console him while the Blackhawks celebrated. It was quite a change from the end of the third period, when the Blackhawks thought they had scored the go-ahead goal. But it was waved off with less than two minutes remaining by referee Stephen Walkom, who called a pair of penalties behind the play. Patrick Sharp had given Chicago a 1-0 lead in the second period. Henrik Zetterberg tied it in the third for No. 7 Detroit, which beat second-seeded Anaheim in seven games in the first round. Howard finished with 33 saves.

Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk was held without a point, closing out an ineffective series for the Russian star.

“I just heard the horn going and the boys jumping out. It was a pretty exhausting game, but I think I was more tired during the celebration with guys jumping and pushing me in the face and dragging me down.” Brent Seabrook Chicago made it to the conference finals for the first time since it won the title three years ago and will host Los Angeles in Game 1 on Saturday night. The Kings advanced with a 2-1 victory over San Jose in Game 7 on Tuesday night. Pittsburgh will host Boston in the opener of the Eastern finals on Saturday. Chicago was one of the favourites to win the Stanley Cup when the playoffs began, storming

to the Presidents’ Trophy during the lockout-shortened season. The Blackhawks then boosted their credentials with a five-game win over Minnesota in the first round and a convincing 4-1 victory against the Red Wings in the series opener. But Howard and Detroit responded with three straight victories, pushing Chicago to the edge of elimination. The frustrated Blackhawks held a team meeting the day after Game 4, where the seeds were planted for their improbable comeback. They felt one win would turn it around, and they were right. Three victories later in which the Blackhawks outscored the Red Wings 10-5 after managing just two goals in Games 2-4 - they became the 25th team to win a series after trailing 3-1. It was the first time in franchise history Chicago has made such a comeback. Crawford finished with 26 saves, continuing his strong performance after allowing a soft goal that nearly proved costly in Game 6. He was especially tough after Detroit turned up the pressure early in the

third. The Blackhawks celebrated wildly when Niklas Hjalmarsson blasted a slap shot by Howard with 1:47 left in regulation, prompting cheers from the raucous crowd. But Chicago forward Brandon Saad and Detroit defenceman Kyle Quincey got tangled up in front of the Red Wings bench. Walkom stopped play to give roughing penalties to both players as the Blackhawks went in for what appeared to be the go-ahead goal. Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews had a long discussion with one of the officials while the cheers turned to boos as the crowd realized the goal was waved off. The Red Wings then rushed down the ice, and Johan Franzen’s shot was blocked by defenceman Duncan Keith. After a seesaw series with all sorts of twists and turns, Chicago and Detroit faced off one more time in a Western Conference playoff game. The Red Wings will move to the East after this season as part of NHL realignment while the Blackhawks remain in the West.

Rangers fire Tortorella after early playoff exit Ir a Podell Associated Press

NEW YORK - The Rangers fired combative coach John Tortorella on Wednesday, four days after New York was eliminated from the Stanley Cup playoffs. Tortorella was unexpectedly dismissed with one year left on his contract. He led the Rangers to the Eastern Conference finals last year and into the second round this year before New York was eliminated in five games by the Boston Bruins. The fiery Tortorella, who was hired to replace Tom Renney in February 2009, achieved some success with the Rangers but couldn’t match the Stanley Cup title he earned in 2004 with the Tampa Bay Lightning. Rangers general manager Glen Sather met with the media via a conference call Wednesday afternoon. He did not a name an immediate replacement, but hopes to have one in place by the June 30 NHL draft in Newark, N.J. “I felt this was a decision that had to be made

going forward,” Sather said. “I think he was shocked, but he is a gentleman and he took it very well.” Last season, Tortorella led the Rangers to 51 wins - the second-most in franchise history - and 109 points before they were beaten in six games by New Jersey in the conference finals. He finished his Rangers tenure in fourth place on the team’s career coaching wins list. The 54-year-old Tortorella got the Rangers back into the playoffs in this lockout-shortened season, and New York outlasted Washington in seven games in the first round of the playoffs before being knocked out by Boston. The Rangers entered the 48-game season as a prime contender to win the Stanley Cup, especially after the off-season acquisition of top forward Rick Nash in a trade with the Columbus Blue Jackets. After a slow start, the Rangers rallied to a 2618-4 record and the No. 6 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs.

Canada’s Raonic advances at French Open C anadian Press

PARIS - Canadian Milos Raonic defeated Frenchman Michael Llodra in four sets Wednesday to advance to the third round of the French Open. Raonic, the No. 15 seed from Thornhill, Ont., had 24 aces in the 7-5, 3-6, 7-6 (3), 6-2 victory on the Lenglen showcase court at Roland Garros. “It was a difficult match,” said Raonic, who improved to 4-0 lifetime against Llodra. “Mica’s not just tough for me to play, he’s tough for everyone. “I’m very content with my tennis, I played well today. My serve is the most important part of my game and it worked well today. When it does that, I always play better.” Raonic will next face big-serving South African Kevin Anderson, who beat Russian Evge-

ny Donskoy 6-7 (8), 6-1, 7-5, 6-2. Raonic recorded four breaks in 12 chances against Llodra. “He does a lot of things to make you feel uncomfortable,” Raonic said of the local favourite. “I felt like at one point I just let it get too much, we were playing under his terms rather than mine. In the first set I created a lot of opportunities for myself, especially on his serve.” “It was a good match,” he added. “I won but I wish I could have gotten going a little bit better. But fortunate in that tiebreaker when I felt like my back was up against the wall, I got going and sort of carried that through the fourth set.” Also Wednesday, qualifier Vasek Pospisil of Vancouver dropped a 7-6 (9), 6-4, 6-7 (4), 2-6, 8-6 decision to Argentina’s Horacio Zeballos in a match that lasted over

four hours. The match began late Tuesday but was suspended due to darkness in the fourth set. When play resumed, Pospisil took the fourth set and moved up a break at 4-2 in the decider only to give up a break a game later. Zaballos, who beat Rafael Nadal in February on clay in Chile, later broke for a 7-6 lead and held serve for the win. “It was very disappointing,” Pospisil said.

“I was up 4-2 and completely (gave) him three points in the next game. It was so unlike me. I’m hardly likely to give a break back, especially after fighting so hard to get into winning position. “I came from two sets down against a good clay player, It was still a positive match for me. My game has been improving a lot. Maybe my head was not ready to win a match like this. Maybe my game is im-

proving faster than my head is ready for.” Pospisil was looking for his second career victory at a Grand Slam. He won a first-round match at the U.S. Open in 2011. In men’s doubles play, Toronto’s Daniel Nestor and new Swedish partner Robert Lindstedt came back from an early 2-5 hole for a 7-6 (8), 7-6 (4) first-round win over Russian Mikhail Youzhny and Sergiy Stakovsky of Ukraine.

New sports make IOC shortlist for 2020 Olympic inclusion Stephen Wilson Associated Press

Submitted photo

LEADING THE CHARGE: The Mount Baker Wild rugby squad returned victorious with a dominant 32-0 win over the Crowsnest High School on Tuesday afternoon in Alberta. The Wild got their offence on two tries from Brody Kappler, along with a pair from Matt Rushworth. Taylor Bond and Sid Verma contributed with singles, while Tallon Creber notched a conversion. The game was faced-paced with lots of side to side action, and the Wild did an excellent job in retaining and recycling the ball. Wild coach Sean Sinclair also noted that the game was a nice way to bounce back after losing to Nelson in the zone qualifier for provincials. Pictured above: Logan Marion carries the ball up the field while attempting to avoid a tackle from a Crowsnest High School player.

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia - Three months after being dropped from the 2020 Olympics, wrestling won a reprieve Wednesday and made the IOC shortlist for inclusion in the games. Also making the cut were squash and a combined baseball-softball bid. Eight sports were vying for a single opening on the lineup. Eliminated from contention were five sports - karate, roller sports, sport climbing, wakeboarding and the Chinese martial art of wushu. The IOC executive board will submit wrestling, squash and baseball-softball to the full IOC assembly for a final decision on Sept. 8 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. “It’s a good mix of team sports and individual,” IOC vice-president Thomas Bach said. The decision came

after the eight sports federations made closeddoor presentations to the IOC executive board. The board voted by secret ballot over several rounds, with wrestling winning on the first round with eight of the 14 votes. Baseball-softball beat karate 9-5 in a head-tovote to win its spot on the list. Squash got through in the final round, getting eight votes to defeat wushu with four and sport climbing with two. Men’s baseball and women’s softball, which have been off the program since the 2008 Beijing Games, merged into a single federation to improve their chances of getting back in. “We are humbled and honoured,” said Riccardo Fraccari, co-president of the World Baseball Softball Confederation. “The decision motivates us to work even harder on behalf of the athletes.”

Outstanding in the open forest: On May 15, 27 land managers, guide outfitters, fire suppression experts and contractors took an all-day field tour to see how mastication treatments are working to save money, open up choked forests and reduce the threat of wildfire. Hosted by the Rocky Mountain Trench Ecosystem Restoration Program, the tour visited five locations in the Trench where mastication—mulching by machine—treatments have been ongoing. Shown here, Randy Harris, Trench ER team leader, explains how mastication treatments were conducted in the Cranbrook Community Forest. www.Trench-ER.com

Reality: Our Biggest Delusion This is the latest in a series of submissions from Carrie Blais’s Creative Writing class at Mount Baker Secondary School in Cranbrook

T

hroughout history we have strived to understand the universe and its counterparts, asking questions such as “What is the meaning of life?” or “Is there more to life than we can comprehend?” However, the biggest question of all is something we all co-exist in and face each and every day – reality. It is the epitome of the unknown, and the mysterious natural phenomenon we have yet to uncover while gracing this earth. My perspective however is not less valid then the next, we incidentally have constructed this thought process over years of evolvements in questioning, language, and writing. Therefore, this article is no more than a satire, and the years we have spent “Questioning” only benefit the lives of me and you today. Since the beginning

of human life we have created history everywhere, and as far as we can look back there will always be questions about life we have yet to answer. Some questions can be answered scientifically, while others may be answered from our very own experiences on this earth. However, reality is neither a question nor an answer; it is something I believe we have created ourselves in the midst of our evolvement through time. Therefore, reality is not a phenomenon at all but instead the universe and all of its counterparts, and the word itself is only an illusion. I am not trying to say reality does not exist, because it most certainly does, but instead I am simply just expanding my own thoughts on the matter, while leaving it up to you to decide for yourself. For me reality is only a word and a

definition created by humanity. It is the result of thousands of years of knowledge in time, and I personally believe that we did not start “Questioning” this until we had developed communication with each other. Realistically, life is just an occurrence that we have spent so much time trying to understand instead of just accepting it for what it gives us. If I were to die tomorrow the world would live on, and reality would still exist because it is not a part of me, you, or your favourite childhood pet. I could write about why reality is a misconception all day, but the human mind is something that holds its own beliefs and perspectives, and that is the beauty of individuality – we all choose our own path in life. Subsequently reality is the state of things, as they actually exist, which I

Quilters show feature more than 200 creations Barry Coulter

The craft of quilting is alive and well, and will be on display in all its spendour this Friday and Saturday, May 31 and June 1, in Cranbrook. The Cranbrook Quilters Guild is holding “Stories in Thread,” featuring more than 200 locally crafted quilts. The Guild holds its show every two years, and this year the venue is the Cranbrook Alliance Church. Guild member Bev Higgins said quilts — some of which are for sale as well as display — cover the spectrum. “Some are more traditional, some are

quite artistic — there’s something for everybody,” she said. The quilts are also being judged, and by the time the show opens, attendees will be able to see those considered the best of the best. Tickets are five dollars for adults and two dollars for students. Children under 12 are free. Times are 12 noon to 7 p.m. Friday, May 31, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 1. The Cranbrook Quilters Guild has been in existence for more than 25 years.

find rather ironic. How can we question the existence of things without prior knowledge of it in the first place? Take this article for an example, I could hand it to the Daily Townsman office or I could not, but in the end you would not know if I had completed it without physically reading it for yourself. Therefore, reality is not as far-fetched as we think, it is just our own decisions on what we choose to believe, and writing still remains the most influential form of belief. Take the most appraised piece of literature created “The Holy Bible” one book had captured the hearts and souls of millions, but who am I to say it is not the words of God himself? Interesting isn’t it, yet we still “Question” reality when for centuries an imperative example of the matter had

been right under our nose the entire time. My existence on this earth may not be much to prove anything, but the word “Existence” will always be something brought up for centuries until we can fully understand life’s concealed mysteries. Reality is something we will always “Question” and no matter what, there will always be them until the end of time. Because time is reality, and the fact we strive to understand it is something I will never be able to recognize. However, I do believe one thing and one thing only – reality does not exist for me, but it most certainly can for you. Ryan Smith is a student at Mount Baker Secondary School in Cranbrook

Balancing the budget this year will mean tough decisions by government, no tax increases, and saying “no” to spending requests outside the budget.

A mandate for economic development in resource extraction and tourism includes a recognition by government to balance growth with sustainable activities on the land.

Disaster payouts ‘canary in the coal mine’ for future weather: insurance head BILL GR AVEL AND Canadian Press

Forgeron deflected questions about whether Canadians can expect escalating insurance premiums.

Don Forgeron

He said many insurers are being very “proactive’’ with their customers to make sure they are prepared for problems that can arise. Forgeron said aging municipal storm water and sewer infrastructure is the big worry. The Federation of Canadian Municipalities has estimated there are $69 billion worth of outstanding repairs, he said. “While science has confirmed the weather is getting worse, we also know that aging storm water and sewer infrastructure failure is to blame for most of the damage.’’

t has been almost two months since we switched from HST to PST. The usual

questions I received around April 1st were: “What is taxable?”. I thought that in this is-

What’s Taxable and What’s Not sue of the Problem Solver I would approach that question from the angle of “What PST exemptions are available?”

PST Exemptions All permanent exemptions from the previous PST system are re-implemented, including: food for human consumption (e.g. basic groceries and prepared food such as restaurant meals)

Freedom. Comfort. Piece of mind. www.falkins.com

books, newspapers and magazines children’s clothing bicycles prescription medications and household medical aids such as cough syrup and pain medications These exemptions are available to all purchasers. Purchasers don’t need to do anything to get the exemption.

Providing Exemptions to Customers

250.426.1976 or 877.426.1976 250.489.1981

Some exemptions are only available to certain purchasers in certain circumstances. Businesses need to keep specific information in their records to show why they didn’t charge PST on the sale or lease. If businesses don’t do this, they can be assessed for the tax that should have been

collected, plus penalties and interest. To provide certain exemptions, businesses must get the purchaser’s PST number or, if the purchaser doesn’t have one, a completed PST exemption certificate, otherwise, the business must charge and collect PST. These exemptions include: Goods purchased solely for resale or lease Software or telecommunication services purchased solely for resale Goods or software purchased to be incorporated into goods for resale If the purchaser provides the required documentation after the purchase but within 180 days, businesses may refund or credit the PST charged. It is the purchaser’s responsibility to ensure they qualify for the exemption. If the purchaser completes an exemption certificate but they don’t qualify for the exemption, the purchaser is responsible for paying the PST.

PST Exemption Certificates There are a number of exemption certificates that qualifying customers can complete to get

a PST exemption at the point of sale or lease. If you want further information on any of these exemption certificates please Google the form number after the exemption certificate listed below.

When a good or service is not subject to PST, a specific exemption in the legislation isn’t needed. Similar to the old PST, the following isn’t taxable under the new PST. sales of real property such as residential housing or commercial real estate admissions and memberships

ENERGY SAVING TIPS LIGHTS Regularly clean bulbs, fixtures, lenses, lamps and reflective surfaces. By removing grease, dust and other dirt, it can increase the output of your lights.

AIR CONDITIONERS Change the filter on your HVAC system. If you use the fan on your heating unit to circulate cooler air during the summer months, a clean filter will contribute positively to a higher efficiency level.

NATURAL LIGHT Take advantage of the longer daylight hours. Adjust your lighting practices. Consider installing light sensors so that you don’t pay for light until necessary.

Why travel to Paris? There’s the history, the architecture, the shopping, museums and cul-

Paris is home to several famous landmarks and monuments that have awed and intrigued travellers for decades. Towering over the city of Paris more than 1,000 feet high, the Eiffel Tower is one of the greatest modern architectural masterpieces in the world. It took builders longer than two years to construct 18,038 pieces of iron for the tower’s grand opening on March 31, 1889. Guests can visit the tower and purchase a ticket to either ride the

elevator or climb 1,665 stairs to the third level and observe the city from a height of 905 feet. The Louvre is the largest art museum in the world. The museum’s original structure was built as a palace for King Louis XIV in the late 12th century. More than eight million people visit the museum each year to view original artwork that dates back thousands of years, such as Michelangelo’s “The Slave” and Leonardo da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa”. While the city holds a

heavy cultural and historical significance, it also has a more modern side. Opening in 1992, Disneyland Paris, or Euro Disney, is another popular attraction in the region. On the Avenue des Champs-Elysee, you will find a luxury shopping experience parallel to New York’s 5th Avenue. Prestigious boutiques like Louis Vuitton, Guerlain, Chanel and Yves Rocher are just some of its luxury shops that attract people from all over the world.

The Basin Business Blender: A 3-part skill development, networking and collaboration event for manufacturing and technology businesses. **Travel subsidies available!!**

Part 1: Workshop - Breakthrough Branding Boost marketing and sales performance by learning to identify and promote your brand to your target market. Part 2: Networking Event Come connect with the Basin’s most innovative small businesses and support organizations. Cash bar and appetizers included. Part 3: Keynote - Rallying Regional Innovation Explore the foundations of cluster success, including ways to develop regional entrepreneurship, the attraction of skilled labour and investment, the connection to branding a region, and strategies to overcome barriers.

You may have heard about the hunchback who roamed the towers of the Cathedral Notre-Dame de Paris. It was just a work of fiction created by the French author Victor Hugo, but the cathedral that housed the living monstrosity is very much real and an example of amazing Gothic architecture. The gardens of Paris are a tranquil oasis. It is said that this is the greenest city in all of Europe, with a quarter of its land dedicated to

green space. The Jardin du Luxembourg features a sculpture of Rodin, the first scaled down Statue of Liberty model and a children’s carousel. The question isn’t “why travel to Paris?” but rather “why wouldn’t you travel to Paris?” For information on Paris or any other travel, see our travel professionals at Uniglobe Travel, 24-10th Avenue South, Cranbrook, or give us a call at 250-4268975.

cranks out sound effects for video games. There aren’t many people like him. While Canada closes in on the status of being the world’s second-biggest video-game producer, with more than 16,000 employees, there are only a handful of fulltime foley artists. Relying on his imagination, the Ubisoft employee improvises

sounds based on what he sees on-screen while working on games like Assassin’s Creed 4. He might remove the skin from a banana to mimic a zombie peeling the skin off its face. He’s used an old door knob and latch in order to replicate the sound of a centuries-old musket gun cocking. In this line of work, as it turns out, there

Foley artist Tchae Measroch works at his studio at Ubisoft in Montreal, Thursday, May 16, 2013. might be unusual uses for a medical tool whose regular intended purpose is probing body cavities. “It happened once that I couldn’t find a pair of police handcuffs in my stuff,’’ he recalls. “So, from my ‘Hospital Items Box’ I grabbed a speculum to sound the cuffs.’’ Axes, bottles, boots, chains, old tires, swords — they’re never far from reach. His tool kit involves anything he can use to replicate a sound. He might find such objects at home or in the most unlikely of places, such as garbage cans. And there’s plenty of .

trial and error. While trying to simulate the sound of someone being clubbed over the head, for instance, Measroch quickly realized his bear skull wouldn’t produce the desired effect. In the end, a coconut did the trick. Starting out at age 20, Measroch worked alongside a veteran foley artist on B movies, assisting him for three years before venturing out as a freelancer and picking up film work. Measroch eventually left the movie business and ventured into gaming, lured by the offer of greater creative challenges and recog-

nition. Life as a foley artist has had its challenges. “It’s like being the stuntman of sound,’’ he says. Measroch recalls injuring himself while working on a movie. He’d put his hands through glass while trying to emulate the sound of a woman, held captive in a cabin, banging on the window. Visitors to his studio will occasionally suggest he has a dream job. Measroch makes sure to point out that it’s not just fun and games. “Sometimes it’s a tough job,’’ he says, “and you’ve got to be ready to get your hands dirty.’’

a sense of direction about where this group is heading. You are a natural leader, and you don’t need to press a point. Others tend to defer to you. Tonight: Hang out with a favorite person. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You suddenly could be weighing the pros and cons of a particular situation. You might want to say that you have had enough, so be prepared to act on this verbalization. Check out a purchase with care. Don’t spend what you don’t have. Tonight: Treat a friend to dinner. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH You are very much in the moment. You might not even bother to investigate some important information you heard through the grapevine. Try to be more alert, especially if a boss or some other authority figure heads your way.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I am in my 20s and am engaged to a beautiful girl. Our religion prohibits sex before marriage. But when “Donna” tells me to stop kissing her, I persist. I don’t see why not. It’s just kissing. Donna says she has not been firm enough with me and when she says no, she means no. Yesterday, I was sitting next to Donna and started kissing her on the lips. She said no, and when I didn’t stop, she slapped my face. It felt like I had been stung by a bee. Donna told me she definitely had to slap me. My cousin said that in a dating situation, the woman sets the rules, and it is her prerogative to slap a man’s face if she feels he has gone too far. Do you agree? I don’t think she had to slap me. -- John Dear John: It’s hard to believe you are living in this century. While we don’t recommend that women go around slapping men, anything you do after Donna says “no” could be considered assault or even attempted rape. She is entitled to defend herself. She could call the police. Show some respect for your girlfriend, and stop kissing her when she asks you to stop. You sound too immature to get married. Dear Annie: I am a 32-year-old professional woman and a newlywed. I have been best friends with “Martha” since the first grade, although we began to drift apart after college. But we always talked about our future weddings and vowed to attend each other’s. Meanwhile, I moved to the East Coast, and Martha moved to the West Coast. We stayed in touch and occasionally saw each other in our hometown. I was not asked to be a bridesmaid at Martha’s wedding, but I traveled to California with my fiance to attend and also went to her bridal shower in our hometown. Very few others did because of the cost and the distance. Her parents told me they were thrilled that I was there. About 10 months after Martha’s wedding, I married on the East Coast. Of course, Martha was invited, but she RSVP’d that she could not attend. She gave no reason. My first anniversary is approaching, and I have yet to hear any words of congratulations from my “best friend” -- no card or gift or even a phone call. I also haven’t heard anything from her parents. Back in my hometown, my mother occasionally runs into Martha’s mother. She has never mentioned my marriage. I am terribly hurt. It seems clear that Martha doesn’t care about me or want to continue our friendship. I am trying to put this behind me, but I am puzzled that neither she nor her family had the common courtesy to send a note of congratulations. I am thinking of “unfriending” her on Facebook. -- Raised with Manners Dear Manners: Martha was remiss not to send a card of congratulations. But when friends go in different directions -- figuratively as well as physically -- the closeness tends to fade. It doesn’t mean Martha no longer cares, only that the friendship has become a casual interest. Facebook is actually perfect for that. You can keep track of each other without having to invest any genuine effort. Dear Annie: I believe you missed the boat with your answer to “Irritated by Lack of Thoughtfulness,” who said a woman carried on a cellphone conversation during a funeral. You said it was impolite, but added that the phone could be turned on “mute” or “vibrate” and emergencies handled out of earshot. We have lost all sensitivity to others. At funerals, weddings and church services, phones should be left at home or in the car. If something is so important that one must stay connected, one should not attend the function. Not so long ago, cellphones didn’t exist, and we managed to survive. -- Litchfield, Maine Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Recent discovery restores fossil creature Archaeopteryx to its perch Alic ia Chang Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — A raven-sized creature that lived about 150 million years ago is back on its perch, a new study says. Widely pegged as the earliest known bird, Archaeopteryx’s status was called into question two years ago by Chinese scientists. They proposed yanking the prehistoric creature off the “bird’’ branch of the evolutionary family tree and moving it onto a closely related lineage of birdlike dinosaurs. Now an international team led by the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences believes Archaeopteryx should indeed be considered a bird. The famed fossil was discovered in 1861 in Germany and quickly became an evolutionary icon. Archaeopteryx possessed part-bird, part-reptile traits. It sported broad wings and feathers like a bird, but it also had three-fingered claws, sharp teeth and a long bony tail similar to a dinosaur. Fossil discoveries of feathered dinosaurs in northeastern China over the past two decades have challenged Archaeopteryx’s place

in bird evolution. The latest evidence suggesting Archaeopteryx had more in common with birds than dinosaurs comes from the discovery of an intact, well-preserved skeleton of a previously unknown dinosaur dubbed Aurornis xui. It lived during the middle to late Jurassic era in China’s Liaoning province where many early birds and feathered dinosaurs roamed. Belgian researcher Pascal Godefroit and his team compared the anatomy of the newly discovered dinosaur fossil to a variety of birds and dinosaurs to determine their relationship. The analysis, published in Thursday’s issue of the journal Nature, classifies Archaeopteryx back into the bird category. Lawrence Witmer, a bird evolution expert at Ohio University, called the analysis compelling. But he said it’s still tough to tease apart that segment of the family tree. “All of these little feathered species running and flapping around ... were all very similar,’’ Witmer, who had no role in the research, said in an email.

hey’re so darned handsome, those springtime birds. Catch a glimpse of a male Rufous Hummingbird in the sun or a Canvasback Duck in the choppy, grey water and you have to wonder ... Even the Blackbirds with their red and yellow wing patches or yellow head and breast attract attention. Despite being brightly colored, they’re not always easy to see. The Yellow Warbler, an overall bright yellow bird with reddish streaks, disappears into a willow shrub clothed in lime-green leaves and catkins. The Blue Jay too, with it’s blue crest, dark necklace and flashing white patches, can be hard to spot. However, a careful listener can discern a wide variety of distinctive songs and calls, especially in the spring when birds are establishing territory and attracting a mate. While exploring Isadore Canyon recently, an unusual bird call at dusk had me checking the field guides. This picturesque, wild area north of Cranbrook, shares many of the qualities of Elizabeth Lake. Drive about six kilometres north of the Tamarack Mall towards Fort Steele along Highway 3/95 and turn right into a pullout and park. Follow a short trail downhill through the forest, step over a wire fence and walk left on the old rail grade. Isadore Canyon is the route used by the CPR to connect Wardner and Cranbrook until 1970. The trail skirts interesting rock bluffs and marshy ponds as well as grasslands, rolling hills and mixed forests. The rather loud ker-WEE? announced a small, secretive bird of freshwater marshes that spends a lot of time hiding in the reeds. Soras are very elusive birds who skulk around the margins of ponds, rarely showing themselves. This quail-sized waterbird often gives a high, squealing whinny ko-WEEee-ee-ee descending and slowing at the end. The Sora is the most common and widely distributed Rail in North America. It breeds in shallow wetlands with lots of emergent vegetation. Rails may be seen running rapidly across openings

The Sora in marshes, and they often swim short distances rather than fly. Rails’ bodies are laterally compressed — hence the expression ‘thin as a rail’ — which allows them to escape into dense grass or reeds. A similar bird, the Virginia Rail is also found breeding at Elizabeth Lake where the male gives a hard, mechanical ‘gik gik gik gidik gidik gidik gidik’ which could easily be heard above the rustling leaves and choppy water. Naturalists were pleased to see “four of a kind in swallows” this week. Other evidence of the spring migration included the Eared Grebe, Phalaropes, Brown-headed Cowbird, Clay-colored and Chipping Sparrows and the ‘right-on-time’ Black Tern. Small yellow goslings of Canada Goose are rapidly developing and the many varieties of ducklings will soon entertain visitors. Several hawks and eagles patrolled in search of the unwary. Birding with others opened my eyes (and ears) to so many more great birding spots; you can’t help but improve your skills when surrounded by more accomplished birders than yourself. There is no shortage of opportunity at this time of year. The 17th Annual Wings Over The Rockies Festival included 73 events. Coinciding with International Migratory Bird Day on the 2nd Saturday in May, the First An-

Mike Baird photo

nual Creston Bird Festival succeeded in attracting novice and advanced birders from Victoria to the Elk Valley. Featuring guided hikes, walks and drives, Creston also showcased a blossom tour, hummingbird watch and wine tasting. ‘Little Big Day’, the RM Naturalists’ 12-hour birding competition, pitted five teams against each other in an attempt to record the greatest number of bird species. The winning team spotted 110 species contributing to an overall total of 140 species for the day! From May 16 to 20, the Meadowlark Nature Festival offered over 90 nature tours in the Okanagan Similkameen. Naturalists don’t like to use the word ‘cute’ when describing birds. However, that was the term which came to mind when we discovered “day old” killdeer chicks near Elizabeth Lake Lodge. Even at close range they are tough to see because of camouflage and their habit of walking quickly and stopping suddenly. This is one more reason why it is crucial that dog owners control their pets with a short leash. Join Rocky Mountain Naturalists at 7 a.m. on Tuesday mornings by the Elizabeth Lake Visitor Centre. Dress warmly and bring binoculars, a guide book and scope if you are able; we can provide a helpful Checklist of East Kootenay Birds. We wander along the trails slowly and quietly, so

if you are a bit late, you can easily find us. At 8 AM, we’ll be near the ‘concrete blind’. Experienced birders will guide the group and help with identification. However, the more of us watching and listening will certainly bolster the species count. Expect to explore the various habitats for up to 3 hours; as you can see from the species list, it’s a wonderfully rich area. With the help of Kingbirds next week, maybe we can surpass 55 species.   Species List For Mid-May  Pied-billed Grebe Eared Grebe Canada Goose Mallard Cinnamon Teal Green-winged Teal Northern Shoveler Gadwall American Wigeon Canvasback Redhead Ring-necked Duck Greater Scaup Lesser Scaup Common Goldeneye Barrow’s Goldeneye Bufflehead Ruddy Duck Osprey Bald Eagle Sharp-shinned Hawk Red-tailed Hawk Virginia Rail Sora American Coot Killdeer Wilson’s Phalarope Bonaparte’s Gull Black Tern Rock Pigeon Vaux’s Swift Rufous Hummingbird Northern Flicker Tree Swallow Violet-green Swallow Barn Swallow Blue Jay American Crow Common Raven Mountain Chickadee Marsh Wren Ruby-crowned Kinglet American Robin European Starling Yellow Warbler Chipping Sparrow Clay-colored Sparrow Savannah Sparrow Song Sparrow Red-winged Blackbird Yellow-headed Blackbird Brewer’s Blackbird Brown-headed Cowbird House Finch
