The event, organized by Vern Gorham of Creston, followed upon a series of competitions in seven Kootenay communities, with two singers from each advancing to Saturday night’s finals at the Alliance Church. Fourteen singers brought their best before a panel of three judges, and an audience of hundreds. Seven were selected to a second round to determine first second and third place, based on a points system.

Kimberley youth centre facing closure

Lee’s Spark Youth Centre on hiatus as new board mulls future options CAROLYN GRANT Daily Bulletin

The Lee’s Spark Youth Centre has been in operation in Kimberley for 20 years, the longest running youth centre in the province. But these are tough times for the centre and it has been shut down since the winter. In a last ditch effort to keep the Lee Haskell Society alive, former staff members have taken on the Board positions. Former Executive Director Bev Middlebrook has stepped in as chair, with former staffers Chelsea Tierney as Vice President and Secretary, and Sherry Jenson as treasurer. George Rdalja will act as a director. “The previous board wanted to step down and we just didn’t want to see a Society that’s been in existence for 20 years dissolved,” Middlebrook said. The plan was to close the Howard Street building, sell it and its assets and put the money into scholarships. And that still may happen if operating funds aren’t found, Middlebrook said, but they just want to make sure they have exhausted every possibility before they close down for good. And if closure is the only option, the current board has 20 years experience combined at the centre, and will be able to use that knowledge to get the best out of its assets. The issue is operating funds, enough money to pay the bills each month. The Centre does have over $20,000 in program funds sitting in the bank, but you can’t use that money for a Hydro bill.

“It is operating costs we are struggling with,” Middlebrook said. “Funders give money for programs, not for paying monthly bills.” At present, the Centre is on hiatus, while the board tries to find ways to raise funds and perhaps evolve the Centre into something different, maybe more of a community centre. “The City and community have invested a lot of money and time into the building,” Middlebrook said. “It’s in the best shape it’s every been in, it’s energy efficient.” The new board has been brainstorming and they have some possibilities. There is potential to change the front part of the building into space for youth (25) businesses, perhaps new starts who can’t afford the rental price for Platzl space. The back space of the centre has a stage, a new commercial kitchen, two washrooms, a woodburning stove and it’s completely wheelchair accessible. That gives it plenty of potential for smaller weddings, anniversary parties and more. “It’s time the Centre changed,” she said. “We are looking at new directions, maybe a community centre. but ther would still be a youth drop in in the evenings. We are just laying low right now, having conversations. To save money we have all the bills shut off, no phones, just lights until the fall. Then we’ll see.” If you would like some input into what to do with the Centre, email Bev at leesbev@

Local day care expands to accommodate 3-5 year olds Arne Petryshen Townsman Staff

Summit Community Services Society, which has operated a wide range of social programs in Cranbrook for the past 40 years, expanded Little Summit Day Care recently. The day care now has a program for 3 – 5 year olds. The society recognized the need for a program for this age group to complement its other

programs. On Thursday last week, the society celebrated the opening of the expansion. MLA Bill Bennett said that the day care is something that runs right along with the B.C. Liberal’s family first plan. Mayor Wayne Stetski said as a parent years ago he knows who stressful it can be looking for daycare for your children. “With the opening of the

The society said that with the addition of the 3-5 year program, it can now

provide a continuum of care from the birth of a child to around when they enter school. The society attributes the successful completion of the expansion to the contributions and help of a number of funders and local contractors and suppliers. The primary contractor for the project was New Dawn Developments.

Wasa Triathlon celebrates 20 years The family-minded event, encouraging determination and good health, is coming up June 8 and 9

K ait y Brown Townsman Staff

The annual Wasa Triathlon is celebratng its 20th anniversary, filled with the same family-minded focus as always. The triathlon has come a long way from its humble beginnings, gathering more and more participants over the years. Events taking place at the 20th annual edition this coming weekend include the TriKids, Sprint, Olympic and Relay styles. “I don’t know the exact numbers of the earlier days but it was more around 30 to 40 individuals and a bunch of relay teams,” said Charlie Cooper, one of the main organizers of

the event. “In 1999, I think, there were 90 participants. In 2001 we had 180, the following year in 2002 it got up to 360, and in the last two years, 2011 and 2012, we had about 1,200 participants come out to Wasa.” Not only has the triathlon increased in numbers from past years, but it has also increased its diversity of contestants — participants ranging from beginning runners at their first event to those at the peak of their physical condition challenging themselves. “It’s not just for the hard-core athletes, we’ve seen a big increase especially in women that just want to

try and take on new healthy challenges in biking and running,” Cooper said. “We’ve had people of all walks of life that take on the challenge.” In 2003, the Wasa triathlon incorporated something unique that most triathlons don’t provide, which is a race for children and teens. Numbers of youth participating have now grown to about 400. “The number one thing for the Wasa triathlon is that it is a family event and it’s for everybody. We’ve had families from all over and we will have families where pretty much every member participates.” Cooper said that the

PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE Public Notice is hereby given that the Municipal Council of the Corporation of the City of Cranbrook proposes to adopt “City of Cranbrook Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 3769, 2013”. The proposed amendment will change sections of the “City of Cranbrook Zoning Bylaw No. 3737, 2012”. The purpose of the zoning amendments is as follows: Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 3769, 2013 will add a new definition for shipping containers and include provisions in Part 4 - General Regulations to enable the use of shipping containers for storage purposes in the C-2 Highway Commercial Zone, M-1 - Clean Industrial Zone, M-2 - Light Industrial Zone, M-3 - Heavy Industrial and Transportation Zone, and the P-3 - Public Utility Zone. General regulations include limiting the number of containers to a maximum of six (6) or one (1) container per 400 m2 of site area, for the first 1.0 ha of site area, whichever is less; and one (1) shipping container per 1000 m2 of site area thereafter. Additional regulations include provisions for siting, screening, separation distances from combustible structures, and fire and safety requirements. “City of Cranbrook Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 3769, 2013” may be inspected between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, up until June 10, 2013, as posted on the bulletin board in the foyer at City Hall or in the office of the Municipal Clerk. The Public Hearing will commence in the City Hall Council Chamber, 40 10th Avenue South at 6:00 p.m. on June 10, 2013. All persons who believe that their interest in property is affected by the proposed Bylaw Amendment may submit written presentations to the City of Cranbrook prior to the date of the Hearing and they may also submit written and/or verbal presentations at the Hearing, thereby allowing all persons an opportunity to be heard on this matter. SUBMISSIONS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AFTER THE PUBLIC HEARING. Municipal Clerk

changes to the triathlon not only helped increase numbers at the event, but allowed the Triathlon to accommodate all kinds of athletes. “The history of it, since its 20th anniversary, goes way back to the Cranbrook Swim Club with their Masters Club. A group of them decided to put on a triathlon and the first one was in 1993.” However, Cooper said that there have been challenges along the way, one of the being the lull in the year 2000 when no one was available to put it on. “We managed to get a group back together and that was kind of my first big year of involvement in 2001. We got a committee back together and so I have been involved ever since. It will be my 13th year this year,” Cooper said. “We’ve had tremendous support from the community, sponsors, businesses,” Cooper said. “For any event to survive it needs lots of partners.” As the community has given to the Wasa Triathlon and made it thrive, Cooper said that returning the favor is one of the main priorities of the committee — giving back to the community by setting up donations for volunteer groups, such as the individuals who help the participants in the water. “At the same time, I do hire a lot of businesses that come to help out. I collect money and I pass it out back to the contributors.” One of things Cooper values that he sees at the triathlon is the location — Wasa Lake and campground, which he believes is a beautiful location under the Rockies. “It’s always been my goal to see that event

The Committee is quite proud of that.” For those participating, it is not just about competing to win a prize or be the best – but about the act of accomplishing a challenging run. “In terms of the values of other people coming to the event I think they are goal setting, being healthy, keeping a balanced lifestyle,” Cooper said.

“I think overall life is getting more stressful and financially tougher for people but I think if we try and keep life fun a little bit, with a little bit of physical activity and little bit of a sense of adventure, that’s good. I think the Wasa Triathlon brings that.” Charlie Cooper “Life is not getting easier. I think overall life is getting more stressful and financially tougher for people but I think if we try and keep life fun a little bit, with a little bit of physical activity and little bit of a sense of adventure, that’s good. I think the Wasa Triath-

lon brings that.” In celebration of the 20th anniversary, the committee has come up with a new logo for the triathlon and the event will have a market feel – with food vendors and some other stands to give participants opportunities to stock up on memorabilia of the race. “We are just going to continue focusing on, what we feel we do really well, which is produce a quality event that puts the athletes first and we don’t want to get away from that by putting in any gimmicky things,” Cooper said. “We are just trying to make the athletes feel special for the 20th anniversary.” The event in this upcoming weekend, June 8 and 9, at Wasa Lake.

Cranbrook girl helps mark War Amps anniversary S u b m i tt e d

Nicole Byford, 14, is back from The War Amps 2013 BC Child Amputee (CHAMP) Seminar in Vancouver. The seminar brought together child amputees from across the province while also honouring the Association’s 95th anniversary. Born missing part of her left hand, Nicole attended the three-day seminar, which included sessions on the lat-

est developments in artificial limbs, parenting an amputee child, and dealing with teasing and bullying. The opening session paid tribute to the long history of The War Amps, and its continuing legacy of “amputees helping amputees.” Nicole was a Junior Counsellor to the younger Champs, acting as a role model and offering advice. A high-

light at the seminar was the Amputees in Action session, where Champs demonstrated their standard and recreational artificial limbs and devices to the group. CHAMP is funded solely through public support of The War Amps Key Tag and Address Label Service. For more information, call 1 800 250-3030 or visit

B.C. rejects Enbridge pipeline plan To m F l e tc h e r Black Press

The B.C. government has recommended rejection of the Enbridge Northern Gateway oil pipeline project its final written submission to the federal environmental panel. Environment Minister Terry Lake announced the decision Friday, two weeks after an election where pipeline politics played a key role. He said the B.C. government isn’t satisfied with the company’s plans for spill control on the twin pipeline proposed to run from northern Alberta to a tanker port at Kitimat. “Northern Gateway has said that they would provide effective spill response in all cases,” Lake said. “However, they have presented little evidence as to how they will respond.” Lake said any heavy oil proposal would be subject to the B.C. government’s five conditions, which include spill prevention and response, aboriginal participation and a share of oil export revenues for B.C.

Environment Minister Terry Lake Enbridge Northern Gateway vice-president Janet Holder said Friday the province’s position is not the end of the discussion. “The five conditions cannot be fully met until the end of the Joint Review Panel process,” Holder said. “We are working hard to meet the conditions and

earn the confidence of the government and the people of B.C.” Ministry staff evaluated the 192 conditions proposed by the Joint Review Panel, the federal agency that will make a recommendation for permits to Ottawa next fall. The B.C. government and Northern Gateway officials will give their final oral arguments to the panel when hearings resume in Terrace on June 17. Enbridge has argued that its submissions to the federal panel included 7,000 pages of technical reports and nine separate witness panels have answered every environmental question put to it. The panel has conducted 69 days of cross-examination of company officials by B.C. and other representatives. Lake said the B.C. government is not opposed to heavy oil pipeline projects in general, such as the pending application to twin the 60-year-old Trans Mountain pipeline from Alberta to port and refinery facilities in Burnaby and Washington state.

LETTERS to the EDITOR Oil Barons Anyone for a Tar and Feather or maybe Riding out of Town on a Rail party? Looks like that’s what it is going to take to get the attention of the grubby oil barons that keep jumping the price of gas at the pump. They jumped the price to $1.359 when oil was at $93 - $94 a bbl, now it has risen to $1.419 when oil has risen to $95.96 a bbl. The last time gas was at this price was when oil was in the $140 a bbl range. Prime Minister Stephen Harper doesn’t seem to be the least bit concerned what the oil money grabbers are doing to the economy (maybe because of home problems with the pork barrelers (Senators Duffy and Wallin), but it sure is hurting the pockets of those of us that are paying their wages. Could it be because the Chinese have made inroads into the Alberta oil and gas market (Petro Can and others) and their economy is doing a little poorly, so they

figure to take some profits home to bolster their bankroll? They aren’t helping ours! Seems all we are expected do is grumble and mutter to ourselves or others over coffee, but it would be satisfying if we could find some way of showing our displeasure to one the powers that be.

MMA fighters put their pride on the line TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

It’s safe to say that B.C. came out on top of the cross-border rivalries at Battle for the Border: Redemption. Western Financial Place played host to the sequel to Cranbrook’s first MMA event, as fighters from B.C., Alberta, and the U.S. put their pride on the line to go to war inside the cage. Out of the seven fighters representing B.C. only lost one their bout against a cross-border opponent. “Couldn’t have planned it any better,” said Mike Corrigan, who coaches all the Cranbrook fighters out of House of Pain. “Except for Jesse’s fight. Nerves got the better of him.” The event featured three amateur cards, as locals Jesse Cuthill, Mike Seguin and Adam Wills represented House of Pain and got into the cage with their opponents, preparing the way for the professional and headlining bouts. Cuthill, who was making his debut inside the cage, got the show started with a matchup against Tom O’Connor, a fighter out of Progressive Fighting Academy in Lethbridge. It was an aggressive start for both sides, however, O’Connor pounced when Cuthill lost his balance, securing a rear-naked choke a minute and a half into the first round. That turned out to be the only loss of the night for those representing Cranbrook and B.C. Mike Seguin was up next, challenging Robert Nelson, in what was one of the best fights of the

night. The two went to the ground for practically all three rounds, as each struggled to gain position and find a way to apply a submission hold. After three rounds, the judges awarded a split decision to Seguin, who improved his record to 2-0 after winning his debut at the first Battle for the Border last September. Local Adam Wills and Connor Derry finished out the amateur portion of the event, with the Cranbrook fighter coming out on top after a furious stand-up battle. The two went through all three rounds, rarely hitting the ground as they jabbed with their fists and landed kicks on the body. After the final bell rang out, the judges gave a split decision to Wills, improving his record to 5-1. The professional card began after that, with Sheldon Doll going up against Dan Walders out of Calgary. Walders went down early and Doll took advantage, applying an Arm Triangle submission hold 26 seconds into the first round for the win. Brandon MacArthur then continued B.C.’s win streak of the night, taking down Jordan Murray with an Armbar submission halfway through the first round. The crowd, already riled up, got behind Rob Roy for his fight with Derek Clark. Roy and Clark engaged in a standup battle early in the opening round, each looking for the knockout punch. Clark went to the mat and Roy gained position, working the ground and

Roy then jumped the cage and ran through his throng of supporters on the floor and in the stands in celebration. The co-main event featured an all-female matchup between Charmaine Tweet and Amanda Bell. Tweet came into the event representing Regina with a record of 3-3, and had faced the current bantamweight UFC champion Ronda Rousey in the past. Tweet ended up victorious over Bell with a Rear-Naked Choke submission in the first round,

after holding off on some ground and pound from her opponent. Derek Boyle made his return as headliner for the second time in the Battle for the Border series, taking on another American fighter, Eben Kaneshiro for the main event. Boyle controlled the fight right from the beginning, working some aggressive stand-up while gaining position when Kaneshiro took the bout to the mat. Boyle worked his ground and pound on Kaneshiro throughout two rounds before getting the win via technical knockout.

Pacers repel Heat, force Game 7 MICHAEL MAROT Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS - Roy Hibbert had 24 points and 11 rebounds, Paul George finished with 28 points, and the Indiana Pacers forced a deciding game in the Eastern Conference finals with a 91-77 victory over the Miami Heat on Saturday night. LeBron James scored 29 points for the defending NBA champions, who will host Game 7 on Monday. Dwyane Wade

was limited to just 10 as he and Chris Bosh struggled again. The Pacers opened the third quarter on a 14-2 run as the Heat went 1 of 11 from the field. Indiana led by 17 late in the third. Miami got within four before the Pacers pulled away again. It was everything one would expect from an elimination game. The teams traded jabs, sometimes literally, counterpunched effectively and players

ignored the bumps and bruises of yet another physical game in a tough, compelling series. Both teams attacked the basket with sometimes problematic results. Indiana missed about five dunk attempts in the first half and a series of short jumpers, too, costing them precious points. The Heat struggled, too, starting the game just 3 of 22 from inside the 3-point line. Miami was just 16 of 54 from inside the arc for the game.

Kimberley Summer Theatre Presents:

ARIES (March 21-April 19) An idea might seem nearly magical in the way that it just pops into your head. You have been doing a lot of processing lately. Let go of a need to be so rigid, and go with the flow. The challenge will be to stay appropriate while honoring your uniqueness. Tonight: As you like. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You might not agree, but the smart move is to say little and remain focused on what you want. Everyone has his or her special uniqueness, as do you. Accept this fact. The end results could be dynamic. Tonight: Play it low-key. Curl up with a good book or relax to a movie. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You know exactly what you want, and you refuse to be distracted. Someone you work with could inspire you to keep going toward a special goal. Sometimes you are very hard on yourself and question your abilities. Stop that! Tonight: Catch up

on a friend’s weekend. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You might want to rethink a situation. Try to be more careful when making choices. A boss could be observing far more than you realize. Understand what is happening within a special friendship, and know that you might need to delay a chat. Tonight: On top of your game. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Your ability to identify with others will emerge, though you could feel conflicted in some way. Stop and consider why this is before you make any decisions. Check in with someone in the know who can give you some good advice. Tonight: In the thick of things. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You might want to take another look at a recent decision you’ve made. Your actions can, and likely will, have an impact. You might want to open up a discussion if you not done so yet. You might be surprised by what the other person shares. Tonight: Say “yes” to an enticing offer. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

For Better or Worse

Evaluate what is going on within you. Your sense of humor emerges, which allows greater give-and-take with a personal matter. Defer to a partner or an associate who often demands the lead. Right now, there might be little choice. Tonight: Follow someone else’s lead. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Think in terms of personal gain. Lighten up, and the flow of a conversation or interaction will be much smoother as a result. A loved one might be aching to have an important conversation with you; make time for this person. Tonight: Squeeze in some exercise. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You might want to reach out to a child or potential new friend. This person will appreciate your overture. Realize what is happening with a family member, as he or she might be holding back or trying to hide something. Plan a visit in the near future. Tonight: In the moment. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Deal with a domestic issue directly. You could have a bad case

of the blues. Your sensitivity will come forward in a conversation. You seem to know what is happening before it occurs. Follow your intuition about a personal matter, and you will be OK. Tonight: Head home. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You’ll need to ask a lot of questions in order to determine how much of a risk something is. You might need to let this one go. Your serious demeanor could throw someone off in a conversation. Acknowledge what is going on. Tonight: Catch up on a friend’s news. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) To others you might seem so vague, yet to you, you are as a clear as bell. What you can tolerate as far as specifics is much different than others. Verify a financial offer and make sure it is to your liking. Otherwise, let it go. Tonight: Run errands on the way home. BORN TODAY TV news anchor Anderson Cooper (1967), actor Tony Curtis (1925), artist Donald Judd (1928)

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: Five years ago (after 20 years of marriage), my wife and I separated because she found out that I had been regularly indulging in phone sex and that I had slept with another woman. In addition, I’d made constant demands of her for sex. When she asked me to leave, I was determined to completely change my life. I sought help and was clinically diagnosed as a sex addict. I entered a 12-step program and had intensive therapy, read voraciously and, with the help of God, turned my life around. When I briefly lost my job some years ago, my wife let me move back into our home, but not into our bedroom. Since then, we have slowly rebuilt trust to the point where we date, cuddle and even sleep in the same bed. We share our lives and regularly see a couples therapist. She tells me she can see how I’ve changed, and that she admires the work I’ve done. Despite all of this, however, she has repeatedly said that she does not believe she will ever be willing to have sex with me again. She refuses to discuss the matter, even in therapy. She sees a therapist on her own, but says that working on becoming intimate with me is not a priority. I would like to keep our family together, but I don’t know how I can continue in a relationship where sex isn’t even allowed to be discussed. Can people have a healthy relationship without sex? It feels like our relationship is incomplete. What can I do? -Loveless and Discouraged Dear Loveless: Married couples can have a good relationship without sex, but only if both partners agree to it. We commend you for doing the necessary work to salvage your marriage. Unfortunately, your wife still may not trust you entirely, or she may simply be uninterested in intimacy. She also may feel that she put up with your philandering for 20 years, so you should give her however much time she needs. There has, in fact, been progress, albeit more slowly than you’d like. Intimacy and communication are things you should be working on in couples therapy. Please bring both of these issues up at your next session. Dear Annie: I’m a 13-year-old girl. Last night, my mom and I decided to watch a movie together at home. My mom was tired from a long, stressful week worrying about my sick uncle. She fell asleep toward the beginning of the movie. I am just wondering if there is a proper etiquette about falling asleep during a movie. -- Sleepy in Indiana Dear Sleepy: Some things can’t be helped. It’s perfectly OK to fall asleep during a movie, provided the snoring doesn’t disturb your companion. We’re sure Mom would have enjoyed staying up with you had she been able. Since she fell asleep so early in the film, you could have watched it alone or turned it off, tucked her in and watched it another time when she was more fully awake. Dear Annie: This is in response to “Begging for Mummy and Daddy.” My daughter started using drugs as a teenager. She got sober for quite a few years, and then she lost it again. At 29, she passed away from a heroin overdose, leaving behind two children, 3 and 9. Please, parents, support your children, brothers, sisters and grandchildren any way you can while they battle this addiction. This is an epidemic in our country. We live in a small town of 2,400 people, and it still reached us. -- Raising Grandchildren in Wisconsin Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

NEWS Canadian veterans Toronto mayor Syrian rebels, Hezbollah guerrillas worried wounded Rob Ford lashes battle as war spills into Lebanon out at critics will be forgotten C anadian Press

LONDON — A group of Canadian soldiers and veterans, many of them struggling with post traumatic stress, have arrived in London after a gruelling six-day cycling ride from Paris. They took part in an event put on by the British-based charity Help for Heroes, which gathered 300 riders from the United Kingdom, Canada and the U.S., including a number of amputees who lost limbs in Afghanistan and Iraq. The entire group stopped at various battlefields in northern France, and received a huge welcome in London as they ended the ride at Horse Guards Parade. Most of the Canadians took part under the sponsorship of the charity Wounded Warriors Canada. Dave Penasse, a former armoured vehicle driver who served in Bosnia, says he’s concerned that as the war in Afghanistan becomes a distant memory for the public, people will forget about the 2,047 who were wounded physically and mentally. His sentiment is echoed by Bryn Parry, co-founder and chief executive of Help for Heroes, who says most memorials are to the dead, but he says one should be erected to the wounded.

Associated Press

C anadian Press

TORONTO — Toronto’s mayor has passed up another chance to directly address allegations of a video in which he appears to be smoking crack cocaine, but he had plenty to say about his critics. Rob Ford used his weekly radio show (on Newstalk 1010) to take a swipe at Ontario’s governing Liberals and media pundits who have questioned his ability to govern amid the video scandal. Instead, Ford and his brother, a fellow city councillor, again slammed Premier Kathleen Wynne, who has expressed concern about the “personal issues’’ that have garnered much attention at city hall in recent days. In discussing Wynne’s governance, Ford

said she “couldn’t organize a two-card funeral’’ and told the premier to “straighten up’’ her act. Ford also lashed out at the Toronto Star — one of the two publications that first reported on the alleged crack video — saying he would “have a stroke’’ if the newspaper apologized for its recent reporting, which his brother claimed was “gutter journalism.’’ Ford answered few questions about the scandal last week, which erupted last month when two separate reports claimed someone described as a drug dealer was trying to sell the alleged footage of the mayor. Ford, who has said he does not use crack cocaine, has lost several staffers over the past two weeks.

BEIRUT — Syrian rebels and Hezbollah guerrillas battled Sunday in their worst clashes yet inside Lebanon, a new sign that the civil war in Syria is increasingly destabilizing its fragile neighbour. Syria’s foreign minister, meanwhile, rebuffed an appeal by the U.N. and the Red Cross to let humanitarian aid reach thousands of civilians trapped in the rebel-held town of Qusair, under regime attack for the past three weeks. The Red Cross said many of the wounded were not receiving desperately needed medical care. The latest confrontation between Lebanon’s Hezbollah militia and Syrian rebels, who have been fighting on opposite sides inside Syria, came at a time of increasingly incendiary rhetoric between Sunni and Shiite Muslims in the region. One of the Arab world’s most influential Sunni clerics, Yusuf al-Qaradawi,

urged the faithful this week to fight alongside Sunni rebels against Shiite Hezbollah and President Bashar Assad’s minority Alawite sect, an off-shoot of Shiite Islam. Hezbollah’s involvement in the battle over strategic Qusair has also raised tensions with Syrian rebels who have threatened to target the militia’s bases in Lebanon, and with Sunnis in Lebanon who support the rebels. Clashes between Sunnis and Alawites erupted Sunday evening in Lebanon’s northern city of Tripoli, wounding at least 14 people, according to the state-run National News Agency. Also Sunday, three rockets from Syria struck northeastern Lebanon, a day after 18 rockets and mortar rounds hit Lebanon’s eastern Baalbek region, a Hezbollah stronghold. From Saturday night into Sunday, Hezbollah encircled and ambushed Syrian rebels and allied Lebanese fighters whom they suspected of rocketing Baalbek, a

Lebanese security official said. Events in Lebanon could spin out of control, even if rival Lebanese groups don’t want Syria’s war to be exported to Lebanon, said Hilal Khashan, a political science professor at the American University of Beirut. With Lebanese fighters increasingly engaged on opposite sides in Syria, “the worst is yet to come’’ in Lebanon, he said. Syrian activists reported new fighting in Qusair, about six miles (10 kilometres) from the Lebanese border. Local activist Hadi Abdullah, speaking by Skype, reported heavy shelling and regime airstrikes on the town, saying at least four people were killed and more than 30 wounded. He said thousands of civilians were trapped in Qusair, including hundreds of wounded. Hezbollah cut off running water when it seized the water station, he said, and food was running out.
