Rockies snow pack drops 20 per cent U.S. study finds a dramatic drop in snow cover, affecting water supplies, energy production, and flood and wildfire risk S A LLY MAC D ON AL D Townsman Staff

The Rocky Mountains have lost 20 per cent of their snow cover since the 1980s, according to a U.S. geological study. The study by scientists at the U.S. Geological Survey found “unusually severe declines in snow pack in the northern Rocky Mountains” since the 1980s. Earlier research had found that before the 1980s, snow pack was low in the southern Rockies when it was high in the northern Rockies, and vice versa. This new study found that the decline now applies to the entire length of the mountain range. “Each year we looked at temperature and precipitation variations and the amount of water contained within the snow pack as of April,” said scientist Greg Pederson, the lead author of the study. “Snow deficits were consistent throughout the Rockies due to the lack of precipitation during the

cool seasons during the 1930s — coinciding with the Dust Bowl era. From 1980 on, warmer spring temperatures melted snow pack throughout the Rockies early, regardless of winter precipitation. The model in turn shows temperature as the major driving factor in snow pack declines over the past 30 years.” To conduct the study, geological scientists measured the amount of snow against monthly temperature and precipitation data, going all the way back to 1895 and running the figures all the way to 2011. That gave the scientists a look at how winter temperature, spring temperature and precipitation has affected the snow pack. Geologists found that regional snow pack accumulation is very sensitive to changes in those two factors — temperature and precipitation — over time.

Man pleads guilty over New Year’s crash Roland Capilo was charged over an accident that resulted in the death of his niece

SALLY MACDONALD Townsman Staff

A man charged in connection with the New Year’s Eve 2012 death of 20-year-old Brittany Capilo has pleaded guilty in Cranbrook provincial court. Roland Capilo, Brittany’s

uncle, pleaded guilty to dangerous driving causing death and failure to stop at an accident causing bodily harm on Monday, May 27. The court heard that the accident occurred on LD Ranch Road on the ?aq’am (St.

Mary’s Band) reserve at around 5 a.m. on January 1, 2012. There were five people in a Dodge van driven by Roland Capilo, and they had been driving back from the hoodoos on the reserve after celebrating

the new year. Occupants of the vehicle reported that Capilo had been drinking, and was driving at around 100 kilometres an hour.

It was on a dog walk several weeks ago that I noticed my human had increased the pace of our usually gentle meander to a full-on power walk. This was atypical enough, but when he began incorporating short bursts of jogging, I knew something was up. As it turned out my so-called master had agreed to join a team of his work mates in a 5km/10km fun run and had now — less than a week from the day of the race — decided to see if he could indeed run. The next few days turned out to be not only entertaining but positively sweat soaked. It is that very ability to perspire that makes humans as a species, one of the better distance runners on the planet. You gentle reader, are a running machine. Your furless body is blessed with a plethora of three different kinds of sweat glands that keeps your body from over heating during exertion by means of evaporative cooling. This is a crucial adaptation that I, with my thick golden coat, do not possess. This means that over distance, my man should (and here I stress the word should) be able to outrun me. In humanity’s more primitive past they actually brought down prey using a method called persistence hunting. The bipedal, naked skinned, hominid would chase fleet-footed animals like antelope for days until the over heated beast eventually became exhausted and then became dinner. In her article for The Scientific American, called “The Naked Truth,” Nina Jablonski wrote, “Naked skin itself played a crucial role in human evolution.” That it was only as you people-types lost your fur that your brain size began to increase. Why? Because, she writes, “without regulation of body temperature, tissues and organs — specifically the brain — can become damaged by overheating.” So what is an active dog with a thick, luxurious, coat, who cherishes his brain to do? Well there are a number of cooling methods available to us canines, not the least of which is panting. By moving quantities of hot air from our lungs out and over our lolling tongues we are able to lower our body temperature — although somewhat inefficiently — by evaporation too. Then of course there are other common sense methods — like the seeking of shade, immersion in cool water, and perhaps most importantly choosing a human with a measure of compassion; a person who will recognize our discomfort and not make us push past our limits to keep up, because we will, you know. To be with our pack leader we will go till our hearts burst. You humans are truly a blessed species. Not only do you have this large, high-functioning brain, the glorious abilities that come with an opposable thumb and the company of canines who shower you with love and respect, but you can sweat too. By extension, this ability to perspire puts your species among the best long distance runners in the world. So the next time you are in a large crowd, say like in a Wal-Mart, look around at the humanity that surrounds you and be proud. Well, my man did indeed finish his race and in his hiking boots no less. Mind you, he did walk around for about a week post event, looking like a marionette being controlled by a very unskilled puppeteer. Seems there was a “stiff” price to be paid for his lack of preparation. Evidently, dogs aren’t the only ones silly enough to abuse themselves in an attempt to keep up with the pack.

Capilo sentencing ready in August Continued from page 1 Brittany Capilo was seated in the middle of the rear passenger seat and was not wearing a seatbelt. Roland Capilo lost control of the vehicle, and it rolled six times before coming to a stop. No other occupants of the vehicle were seriously hurt in the crash, but Brittany Capilo was thrown about 25 metres from the van and died at the scene. Roland Capilo fled the scene before RCMP

arrived, but a police dog tracked the man down. Capilo then told RCMP that he ran away because he was scared and didn’t know what to do. A Gladue report, which takes into account circumstances facing Aboriginal people, and a pre-sentencing report are being prepared before Capilo is sentenced. That sentencing hearing is likely to occur after August 1, with a fix a date hearing scheduled for July 15.

Snow pack affects water supply, fire risk, energy Continued from page 1

However, it is hard to see why the snow pack has declined so rapidly in the past 30 years. Patterns are hard to discern when analyzing variation of temperature and precipitation because La Nina and El Nino affect the northern Rockies differently than the southern and central Rockies. Recent changes to the snow pack in the mountain range were compared to evidence from tree rings going back 800 years. Greg McCabe, co-author of the study, explains that “recent springtime warming also reduced the extent of snow cover at low to middle elevations where temperature has had the greatest impact.” “Both natural vari-

ability in temperature and anthropogenic warming have contributed to the recent snow pack decline, though disentangling their influences exactly remains elusive,” said Julio Betancourt, a fellow researcher at the U.S. Geological Survey. Snow pack on the Rockies is important for both the U.S. and Canada because it affects things like crop irrigation, energy production at hydroelectric dams, as well as the risk of flood and wildfire. According to the study, if snow melt happens earlier and faster, it can have repercussions for water supply, risk management and ecosystem health for communities west of the Rocky Mountains.

A young athlete from the Aqsarniit Ukauttaq team from Rankin, Nunavut competes at the Coconut Cup tournament held in Kimberley this weekend past.

Special guests attend Coconut Cup

The gymnastics tournament put on by the Kimberley Gymnastics Club brought the Aqsarniit Ukauttaq team from Rankin, Nunavut K a i t y B row n Townsman Staff

The 4th Annual Coconut Cup on May 25 and 26 put on by the Kimberley Gymnastics Club is a competition for young gymnasts but also a fun and light-hearted celebration of gymnastics. Every year, the centre has hosted teams such as Trail, Cranbrook and Golden but this year the centre had some very special guests. “They’re from Nunavut and there are 17 of them and they have travelled all the way down here to our Coconut Cup,” said Twila Ryan, technical coordinator for the Kimberley Gymnastics Centre. “They saw us on the gymnastics B.C. website, and they thought it might be a nice meet for them to come to — a friendly competition that they would feel comfortable with.” The event consisted of the staples of gymnastics: bars, vaults, balance beams, parallel bars, rings and floor

routines. It was an endof-season competition and not a qualifier. The gymnastics club from Rankin, Nunavut started in 2004 and already has approximately 150 recreational and competitive athletes, ranging from young children to adults. The Aqsarniit Ukauttaq team practiced at the centre on Friday before the big event, splurging in the luxury of a real and fully equipped gymnastics centre. “We don’t have a permanent facility so we set up and tear down the equipment four days a week and we just function out of the high-school gym,” said Lisa Kresky, coach for the Nunavut team. So why did the group come all the way to Kimberley? “Each year we try and do one competition in southern Canada because we don’t have competition in the north,” Kresky said. “So we always look for a club down south. We’ve been going to

Ontario a lot of years but this year we wanted to come towards the mountains to give the kids a different experience.” As well, the competition fit the club’s requirements for their annual travel and competition experience. “This competition offered the levels that we needed and it also had boys and girls,” Kresky said. “(Our team) has some of both, and that was one of the main reasons we chose this competition.” However, both of the teams agree that the Coconut Cup is beneficial for the kids on a cultural level as well. “Our guests are going to be singing ‘O Canada’ in their language, which is very ex-

POLL WEEK of the

citing,” Ryan said. “They’re going to do some throat singing for us. So it is a cultural experience for us too.” Ryan added that the Kimberley group is often the one that does the travelling and so gymnasts can appreciate how far this team has come. “Our gymnasts here in Kimberley are really excited to be the host for people who have come really far away to visit them. They’re really proud of their gymnastics club and what they’re doing as gymnasts,” Ryan said. “Our goal, really for all of our people who are coming to the event, is to have fun, enjoy gymnastics, not feel like there is any sort of pressure to perform, but to

enjoy performing.” On their way down, the team got a chance to see scenic Banff and to go horseback riding and voyager canoeing there. After the competition, the team plans on doing sight-seeing around Kimberley to see the Underground Mining Railway and the Kimberley Aquatic Centre. “Where we live, we are a very isolated community,” Kresky said. “So it’s really good to give the kids an experience in a southern atmosphere where there are trees that we don’t have and other facilities — shopping centres, swimming pools and things that we just don’t have — to give them those experiences.”

It’s almost fire season in the Kootenays so it’s a good time to look at the fire dangers of your home and neighbourhood, to be prepared in the event of a fire. Many homes in Cranbrook are near what is called the wildlife urban interface, a zone where the natural world comes into contact with the city environment. The way to mitigate the risk, according to the city, is to make your residence less susceptible to fire and make Cranbrook into a fire-adapted community. “Many people move to the wildland urban interface, bringing with them the same fire protection expectations they had when living in urban or other suburban communities,” said Wayne Price, director of Cranbrook Fire & Emergency Services. “The responsibility of the public is to under-

stand and prepare for the risk of wildland fire. Homes that do not reflect the risk pose not only a threat to the residents themselves, but neighbouring homes and emergency services as well.” Price said that with proper preparation through the community, human population and infrastructure can withstand the devastating effects of a wildland fire, reducing loss of life and property. This goal depends on strong and collaborative partnerships between agencies and the public at the provincial and local levels, with each accepting responsibility for their part. According to the Southeast Fire Centre, every year British Columbia averages more than 2,000 wildfires. Of those, 92 per cent of these fires are extinguished at a size of less than four hectares and are regarded as a successful initial attack. Half of the wildfires

in B.C. are lightning caused, the other human caused. Some ways to help Cranbrook become a fire-adapted community and limit dangers to your home and neighbourhood are: • build relationships with local public safety agencies and residents before a fire starts; • know what to expect from local emer-

known by Wednesday. A recount is also underway in the closest of the 85 constituency elections, Saanich North and the Islands. The NDP’s Gary Holman led after initial counting with 9,676 votes, 50 more than B.C. Liberal candidate Stephen Roberts. Adam Olsen of the B.C. Green Party was a close third with 9,294 votes. Another closely watched constituency is Coquitlam-Maillardville, where B.C. Liberal Steve Kim led with 9,044 in preliminary results. The NDP’s Selena Robertson was 105 votes behind after early results in the final count, which includes absentee ballots. Premier Christy Clark has indicated she will wait until the final count is complete before deciding where to seek a seat in a by-elec-

tion. The NDP’s David Eby finished 785 votes ahead of Clark in election-night returns for Vancouver-Point Grey, a result unlikely to be overturned by the addition of late ballots to the total. Elections BC officials say the 180,000 absentee ballots doubles the number received in 2009. The final count include votes cast by people outside their home constituencies. It also incorporates mail-in votes and special polling places set up at hospitals, isolated communities and logging or fishing camps.

To your batmobiles, citizens What’s Up?

The Kootenay Community Bat Project is seeking volunteers for the Annual Bat Count Submitted

The Kootenay Community Bat Project is seeking volunteers for the Annual Bat Count. This citizen-science initiative encourages residents to count bats at known roost sites to provide valuable information on bat populations. “This event is a wonderful opportunity for residents who care about wildlife to be involved in collecting valuable information,” said Juliet Craig, Coordinating Biologist for the Kootenay Community Bat Project. “They don’t need any special skills and kids can be involved.” The Annual Bat Count is being promoted by the Kootenay Community Bat Project (KCBP) in B.C. to collect baseline data on bat populations before the devastating White Nose Syndrome enters the province. “White Nose Syndrome is decimating bat populations in eastern North America,” Craig said. “We are lucky that this disease is not yet in B.C. but it may just be a matter of time.

They can video the emergence or use a hand tally counter to count the bats as they fly out.

They record the final count along with some basic information on weather conditions. Two counts are done between June 1 and 21 before pups are born, and two more between July 21 and August 15 when pups are flying with their mothers. “We know relatively little about bats, including basic information

on population numbers,” Craig said. “This information will be extremely valuable, particularly if it is collected annually. If people want to get involved but don’t have a roost site on their property, we do our best to match them to a roost site nearby.” Funded by the Columbia Basin Trust, the

KCBP also provides support for landowners dealing with bat issues on their property.

Trend toward a peaceful world

I

magine for a moment that all the wars of the world have come to a peaceful conclusion. Most violent crime against people and property has also been eradicated. The worst outbreak of violence in the world in the past 24 hours has been a fight in a bar in Irkutsk, Russia. What item do you think will lead the international news for the next 12 hours, or however long it takes until something fresher come along? The bar fight in Irkutsk, of course. “If it bleeds, it leads,” says the axiom, and the world’s media follow it slavishly, so they will always give you the impression that the world is drowning in violence. It is not – but people think it is. Stop people at random and ask them how many wars they think are going on in the world right now. Most people would guess around a dozen, although they wouldn’t be able to name them. The right answer is two, and one of them, Afghanistan, is probably approaching its end. There are close to 200 independent countries in the world, and only one in a hundred is currently at war. They are both primarily civil wars, although there is some foreign involvement in each case. The Syrian civil war is extremely destructive of lives and property, the war in Afghanistan less so, and in both cases the fighting occasionally slops over their borders, but that’s it. There are a number of other countries where there is a lower level of civil conflict: the Democratic Republic of Congo, for example, or Colombia (although the latter is now engaged in peace talks to end the fifty-year conflict between the state and the FARC guerillas). But the Sri Lankan civil

war is over, the Iraqi civil war is at least over for the moment, and the many little wars of West Africa are all over. Then there is Somalia, the world’s only failed state, where twenty years of violent anarchy may finally be drawing to an end. But the actual scale of the fighting has rarely risen to a level that would qualify what has been happening there as a full-scale war. Not, at least, what would have qualified as a full-scale war back in the days when that sort of thing was still common. Most of Gwynne the time Somalia’s conflict has been more like gangDyer land wars on steroids. There is terrorism in various places, like Boko Haram’s bizarre campaign to impose Islamic law on Nigeria (where only half the population is Muslim), the Pakistani Taliban’s campaign of murder against their Shia fellow-citizens, and the Naxalites’ long and forlorn struggle to make a Communist revolution in India. All nasty, but none of them real wars. And there is, finally, the famous “war” on terror, which these days amounts to little more than over-zealous law enforcement at home and selective assassination by drones abroad. Like the “war” on drugs in Mexico, it is only a metaphor for an activity that is not really a war at all. So that’s it: two real wars, and a clutter of lesser conflicts that really do not merit the term. In a world of seven billion people, only a few hundred million have even the slightest experience of organised violence for political ends. Why, then, do so many people think that the world is still overrun by war? The media are partly to blame, but they

are also manipulated by various governments that raise the spectre of war for their own ends. Wars that have not happened and are never likely to fill the imaginations of the public: a war in Korea, a US and/or Israeli attack on Iran, Western or Israeli intervention in Syria, a war between China and South-East Asian countries over islands in the South China Sea, a US-Chinese conflict in the Pacific, and on and on. A lot of people, some in uniform and some not, make a living off these mostly phantom fears, and they contribute to the general impression that the world is still a place where war, however deplorable, is the normal state of affairs. It is not. We live in an era where, for the first time in history, no great power genuinely fears attack by any other, and where the number of actual wars can be counted on the fingers of one badly mutilated hand. Almost 90 million people died in the world wars and other big wars (including the Russian, Chinese and Spanish civil wars) of the first half of the 20th century, out of a world population that was onethird of what it is now. In the second half of the century the death toll dropped steeply to 25 million or so, most of whom died in colonial independence wars and civil wars. And so far, in the 21st century, the total is less than one million people killed in war. What we have on our hands here is a miraculous and mostly unsung success story. There will doubtless be more wars, but they may be small and infrequent. We are obviously doing something right. We should figure out what it is, and do more of it. Gwynne Dyer is a London-based independent journalist

RBC Cup championship team includes local player Brandon Bruce describes the journey with the Brooks Bandits that ended with a national Junior A title TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

It was a fortuitous trade in December that sent Brandon Bruce to Alberta, where he suited up for the Brooks Bandits in the AJHL and became a national champion five months later. Bruce, a Cranbrook native, joined the ride and helped the Bandits towards a league title, runner up honours at the Western Canada Cup, and eventually, the team’s first-ever RBC Cup, which was hosted by Summerside in P.E.I. “It feels pretty amazing, that’s for sure,” said Bruce. “…I think it worked out to playing nine months of playing hockey and our playoff run, was probably—we started in March and we just ended in the middle of May, so it was definitely a long haul, that’s for sure, but you prepare for it all year, you work hard all year to make those kind of runs.” The RBC Cup—like the Memorial Cup—is the pinnacle of Junior A hockey which is earned in a tournament featuring winners of regional leagues around the country. The RBC Cup tournament features winners of the Western Canada Cup (Surrey Eagles, BCHL) and the runner up (Brooks Bandits), the winner of the Fred Page

Cup (Truro Bearcats, MHL) and winner of the Dudley Hewitt Cup (Minnesota Wilderness, SIJHL), along with the city’s host team (Summerside Westside Capitals, MHL).

“It’s a pretty amazing feeling, to know that the work you put in all year and you train for all summer that this is it, you’re going to win.” Brandon Bruce The right winger has bounced in and out of WHL and Junior A hockey, spending his first year of junior eligibility in Swift Current with the Broncos as a 17 year old, before moving to the Merritt Centennials of the BCHL. He returned for his second full year with the Centennials this season, but got shipped to the neighbouring province when the Bandits acquired him in a trade. “It was bittersweet,” said Bruce. “I had to leave behind the friends that I made in Merritt, but it was a great opportunity to go to a great team and play with some great players there as well.” The Bandits rolled

through the AJHL playoffs, rallying from a 3-2 series deficit to defeat the Okotoks Oilers in seven games in the third round, and going on to defeat the Spruce Grove Saints in five games for the league title. “That was a really tough series and a lot of adversity to get through, being down 3-2 (in a series) to a really good hockey club,” said Bruce. The Club moved on to the Western Canada Cup, which featured the winners of the Junior A leagues in B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, which was held in Nanaimo. The Bandits had a 3-1 round-robin record, which put them into the Championship final against the Surrey Eagles, where they fell 4-1. “We didn’t play our best hockey, and when that game was over, especially with that tournament style—it’s not a playoff style—you have to have a short memory and the guys in the room, we lost to Surrey, we knew they were going to RBC and we knew we had one more game to try and get there. “It was kind of like a mental reset.” Because of the tournament format, they were pitted against the Yorkton Terriers in a page playoff system to determine runner up honours with the second

Blue Jays bruise Braves 9-3 T YLER HARPER Canadian Press

TORONTO - Edwin Encarnacion hit a threerun homer while Colby Rasmus and J.P. Arencibia each hit two-run shots as the Toronto Blue Jays opened a home-andhome series with Atlanta by defeating the Braves 9-3 on Monday. Mark Buehrle (2-3) was solid through six innings for the Blue Jays (22-29), with one earned run allowed on five hits, two walks and six strikeouts. Tim Hudson (4-4) also went six for the Braves but his pitching line wasn’t so flattering.

The right-hander gave up six runs on eight hits with just one strikeout. He was replaced in the seventh by reliever Cory Rasmus, Colby’s brother, who made his second major-league appearance and lost points in the sibling rivalry. Cory Rasmus gave up a ground-rule double to Melky Cabrera, walked Jose Bautista and watched Encarnacion send the first pitch over the fence for his 14th homer of the year for a 9-1 lead. Colby Rasmus also got some family bragging rights after the Blue

Jays centre-fielder doubled off his brother later in the inning. Evan Gattis had the lone homer for NL East-leading Atlanta (3020), a two-run drive in the eighth inning off Brad Lincoln. Notes: Attendance at Rogers Centre was 22,8008. ... Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said the team is hoping to have RHP Josh Johnson (triceps) back June 4 when Toronto opens a two-game series in San Francisco. Braves centre-fielder B.J. Upton and right-fielder Jason Heyward were given the day off

Cranbrook native Brandon Bruce and the rest of the Brooks Bandits celebrate as they pose with the RBC Cup—the crowning championship for Junior A hockey in Canada. RBC Cup berth on the line. “Their season was on the line, our season was on the line, that was a real intense game,” said Bruce. The Bandits won 1-0, booking their ticket to P.E.I. It didn’t get any easier in Summerside for the Bandits, which posted a round-robin record of two wins and two losses, which was enough to put them into a crazy semifinal against the Minnesota Wilderness. After two periods, the Wilderness were ahead with a 4-2 lead. Then the Bandits

went to work. RJ Reed scored a powerplay marker early in the frame for the Bandits, but the Wilderness held onto a one-goal lead as time ticked down. With netminder Michael Fredrick on the bench in the final minute, the Bandits buzzed in the offensive zone and were rewarded when Dakota Mason tied up the affair with 18 seconds remaining in the contest. Mark Reners was the overtime hero for the Brooks squad, catapulting them into the RBC championship game

against their hosts, the Summerside Western Capitals. It was another wild finish for the Bandits, which rode a 2-1 lead from the first period throughout most of the game. The Capitals pulled their goaltender at the end of the third period for an extra attacker, however, Cam Maclise found the back of the empty net to seal it up for Brooks team.

“When Cam Maclise scored that empty netter, that’s when it really starts to hit you, like, this is real, we’re going to win, this is the national championship,” said Bruce. “Its a pretty amazing feeling, to know that the work you put in all year and you train for all summer that this is it, you’re going to win. “It’s an incredible feeling.”

Kimberley Summer Theatre Presents:

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Your anger and frustration seem to bubble up. After listening to someone’s needs, you could feel put off. Do not respond if following through makes you uncomfortable. Make calls and reach out to a neighbor or sibling. Good news heads your way. Tonight: Hang out. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You will discover what is possible if you relax and become more forthcoming. Your appraisal of a personal matter encourages you to take a leap of faith. Be sure to do much-needed research. By afternoon, you’ll feel as though it is time to take action. Tonight: Make it easy. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Engage in a conversation with a partner. You might not come to an agreement easily. Take an overview and see what facts you are missing. Get to the bottom of a problem by taking in the whole picture. Suddenly, you could see the right path to take. Tonight: Use your imagination.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Others let you know what they want. The problem might be that you are not sure of your choice yet. In some way, you could feel as if someone is running right over you. Share your feelings with this person. Tonight: Chat with a partner or dear friend. Speak your mind. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You could be taken aback by someone’s efforts. You also might find that you are angry or frustrated with an older friend or boss. Why not address the issue directly? This person’s response could take you by surprise. Be prepared. Tonight: In the thick of a situation. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Have a talk with someone you respect, especially if this person is acting as if he or she is peeved. There probably is a good reason for this behavior. You won’t be able to work anything out until you know the problem. Count on your ingenuity. Tonight: Burn the midnight oil. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You could view an important

For Better or Worse

matter very differently from a partner. Listen to what this person shares. He or she means exactly what he or she says. You will have to be very charming and nurturing to surf this wave and come out unscathed. Tonight: You know what is best. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Sometimes you push so hard to have your way that it is difficult to come to terms with a different point of view. Try to listen more to a key person in your life. You both will be a lot happier as a result. Consider taking a walk in order to clear your mind. Tonight: At home. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You might be finalizing some details regarding a purchase or balancing your finances. You will perk up considerably in the afternoon. Make calls, schedule meetings and -- most importantly -- catch up on a friend’s news. Tonight: Run errands on the way home. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You might want to rearrange your schedule in order to make time for an important conversa-

tion in the morning. Understand where others are coming from, and listen to their logic. Tempers run high, and you can do little to change what is going on. Tonight: At a favorite haunt. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You could be dragging in the morning and feel unsure as to which way you want to go. Alleviate a problem by talking it out; otherwise, you could be walking on eggshells. You have a greater chance of clearing the issue later in the day. Tonight: Make yourself happy, first. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Zero in on your priorities. You could be surprised by how strong-willed you need to be in order to get your point across. Later, you might want to spend some quiet time dealing with a project or going over this conversation in your head. Tonight: Catch some extra zzz’s.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: My bullheaded 50-year-old daughter has taken gossip from 32 years ago to make my life a living hell. I have four grown children. My older daughter called everyone she could think of and told them I molested my son when he was 5. My daughter never checked to see whether it was true. I have never been arrested for this or had charges filed against me. She further told all the grandchildren and great-grandchildren that they should never stop at my home. I am 74 years old, have trouble breathing and have cancer that is currently in remission. I want to see my family before it’s too late. My daughter called my sister-in-law and told her she will not go to my funeral when I die. I have been denied visits and phone calls from family members for three years. I desperately need my family to visit. -- Sad and Lonely Dear Sad: You say charges were never filed, nor were you arrested, but you haven’t said that you are innocent of the accusation. If the gossip is true, we completely understand why your daughter would want everyone to stay away. If it is not true, you need to make it clear to the rest of the family that your daughter is spreading lies. Please ask whether she would be willing to go with you for counseling to clear this up and to see whether there is any possibility of reconciling before it is too late. Dear Annie: I’m one of two daughters. Both of us have two sons. Long story short, one of my sister’s sons has borrowed thousands of dollars from Grandma, received a nice car and has never paid any money back. The other three boys have never borrowed a penny. I am the executor of Grandma’s estate and have power of attorney. When something happens to Grandma, I’m in charge. She’s not going to have a million dollars, but when her estate is eventually divided, I believe it would be perfectly fair to exclude the one grandson. What do you think? -Trouble in Hubbard Dear Hubbard: It may be “fair,” but it could estrange you from your sister, not to mention your nephews. What does Grandma think? If she is of sound mind and wants all of her grandsons to receive equal shares, you have an obligation to follow her wishes. You could discuss with her the option of deducting the money her grandson has already borrowed from whatever is left of his share. You also could give the grandson an object of sentimental value in lieu of money, so he doesn’t believe his grandmother forgot about him. Whatever the final decision, please discuss it with your sister as a gesture of good faith and ask her opinion. She may or may not agree with your assessment, but at least she won’t be shocked and angry when the time comes. Dear Annie: I have a couple of thoughts for “Want My Solitude Back,” who assumes these drop-in neighbors and relatives are simply intrusive. But they may believe you want company now and then. Most people do. I, too, enjoy solitude, but most of us want it balanced with caring relationships. Recently, my uncle was found dead in his home. The coroner said he’d been dead at least 10 days. My uncle may have lain on the floor suffering because no one visited him. He had pushed everyone away. If “Want My Solitude Back” truly wants to be alone, he can move to a sparsely inhabited rural area far from anyone who may intrude. Or he could stay where he is and stew and complain -- that should get rid of any friends he might have. -- Likes People Much of the Time Dear Likes: There is a rather thick line between having no one ever visit and having uninvited guests drop by constantly, especially around mealtime. People need to be respectful of one another. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Not sure about the

of retailers report that newspaper sites are efficient in assisting them in meeting marketing needs compared with other sites.

7. High profile: Research.net reports that, among top executives (CEO, CIO, CFO or owner/partner), Internet advertising ranked above over all other media measured for: “Where I prefer to find our about new products,” “Where I prefer to receive information about companies,” and “Where modern, up-to-date brands advertise.” At the same time, these early adopters of technology also skew younger than the traditional newspaper audience. Forty percent of online newspaper users are aged 18-35. 8. Reinforcement: Seventy-six percent of online newspaper users also read the newspaper in the past seven days, and repetition increases awareness. The Internet Advertising Bureau found that, by increasing the number of online banners from one to two per week, branding results on three key metrics increased 42 percent making online a great, inexpensive way to increase the branding lift of traditional campaigns. 9. Quality: Seventy-five percent of advertisers generally said newspaper Web sites’ advertising was as good or better than other Internet sites.

10. Mix: A variety of recent studies have demonstrated the power of online, when included in a mix with traditional media, to elaborate the brand message. Newspaper print and online products combined have the highest penetration and most desirable audience of any other local medium.
