A young fawn, only hours old and the size of a basketball, kept perfectly still, not even flicking its ears. Residents are reminded to show caution and discretion, as fawning season is well underway amongst our neighbours the urban deer.

Water conditions continue to hinder Findlay Creek search C ARO LYN G RA N T Daily Bulletin

Police continue to monitor conditions at Findlay Creek Falls as efforts to reach a submerged truck continue to be thwarted by fast water. A few more details around the location of the vehicle believed to belong to the two missing men in the Findlay Creek area are emerging. The truck, driven by 21-year old Stephen Thomson of Canal Flats, B.C., and 19-yearold Nicholas Hoefnagels of Carstairs, Alta., disappeared on June 8, when the two men left their Whitetail Lake campsite in mid-afternoon. The truck was locat-

Prison enforcer given weekend jail for ‘cowardly’ attack on Cranbrook man C am Fortems Kamloops Daily News

A high school boxer turned prison enforcer who headed a “cowardly” gang-related attack will serve time in jail on weekends, after a B.C. Supreme Court justice found Kyle Walsh has since changed his life. Walsh pleaded guilty to an assault at Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre in December 2010. Video provided by the jail showed Walsh conversing with Cranbrook shooting victim Chad Munroe and other inmates shortly after Kevin Winters was placed in their jail unit. Winters pulled the trigger on Munroe outside a Cranbrook bar in 2009. “It’s unknown how these two men were placed in the same unit,” said Justice Hope Hyslop. The attack began as Walsh, who boxed as an amateur in high school, sucker punched Winters in the back of the head. Winters was then set upon by three other inmates, including Munroe, and received a vicious beating for 20 sec-

onds before guards entered the unit. Walsh continued to punch and kick Winters as he lay on the ground. As guards pulled him off, Walsh thrust his arms in the air — an

“You attacked a man from behind, to his head, while he was seated … It was a dispute where you had no stake or business. You did this for your own ego.” Justice Hope Hyslop apparent victory cheer. Hyslop called Walsh “a bully and a coward. “You attacked a man from behind, to his head, while he was seated … It was a dispute where you had no stake or business. You did this for your own ego.” Despite those sentiments, however, Hyslop chose not to side with the Crown, which asked for an 18- to 24-month jail term. Hyslop said neither society in general nor Walsh himself would be

well served by placing him for a long period in jail. The 24-year-old has eight convictions for assault, aggravated assault and assault with a weapon. Walsh received a 90day sentence, which he will serve on weekends to allow him to continue working. He is also on 30 months probation, including a curfew for eight months. Since receiving bail in 2011, Walsh entered an ironworker apprenticeship program, has strengthened ties with his family and has met all the terms of his bail. Walsh “has a sincere desire to become a useful member of society,” Hyslop said in her ruling Tuesday. The shooting of Munroe in October 2009 triggered a gang war and plot to kill a rival drug dealer in Cranbrook. Three men were convicted in B.C. Supreme Court in Kamloops early last month of counselling murder of one of Winters’ associates. The other inmates involved in Winters’ beating received sentences ranging from 12 to 24 months.

dropped a bit and there was some increased clarity over the weekend, allowing a team of 16 Swift Water Rescue Technicians to locate the truck. Kimberley Sgt. Laurie Jalbert told the Canadian Press that the families of the missing men paid for a blasting permit that allowed some rocks to be blown out at the creek, which revealed part of the truck. “The truck is fully submerged and appears badly damaged,”

Newel said. “The search team attempted to use an underwater camera but the swift flowing water prevented teams from directing the camera into effective positions. SAR teams are exploring other options to get the camera down near the truck.” Earlier this week Newel said that it still wasn’t certain that the missing men were in the truck. The camera would help confirm that. Heavy rain this week

is hampering efforts to recover the vehicle, or to get a camera in for a look. The spring freshet is at its peak in June, Newel says. “At this time the water is flowing at a rate of 50-80 cubic meters per second. This velocity makes it unsafe to enter the water or attempt recovery of the truck.” While conditions are being monitored, search teams are not on site at all times. “We are constantly

monitoring the conditions and respond accordingly,” Newel said. “Since the search began police have been in the area at least every second day. “In addition our SAR personnel, although very dedicated, often maintain full time jobs. A number of employers are very understanding but we need to respect that. We are also conscious of volunteer burn-out which can happen in a lengthy involved search like this one.”

Cranbrook City Council favours setting up wildfire hazard reduction zones Arne Pe tryshen Townsman Staff

The City is getting behind a resolution going to the Union of B.C. Municipalities to establish a community forest zone for wildfire hazard reduction. Mayor Stetski said that Robert Gray, a fire ecologist who has worked with various levels of government in Canada and the U.S., put forward the resolution to establish the zones. “His concern is that right across British Columbia, our communities are not really appropriately protected from forest fires yet,” Mayor Stetski explained. “So this proposal is that

communities would have an opportunity to manage the area around their community.” He said the communities would draw a boundary that they would be comfortable with to protect from wildfires, which may or may not include something like the community forest. It would give the community more say with what happens in the zone for wildfire hazard reduction. “Along with that, potentially the forest products from that area could be used for economic purposes by these communities as well,” Stetski added. Coun. Bob Whetham said that the way he

read the resolution, it allows for the establishment of a management priority. “Typically if you look at forestry lands, they’re managed for commercial forestry. This would allow you to manage it for wildfire prevention,” Whetham said. “We could probably look for something very similar for watershed protection, because we’re always having competing demands for management in terms of accommodating our interests for particular reasons. So I think it gives another tool for us to use.” Coun. Sharon Cross hoped that there could be consultation with the

Community Forest Society, since it holds the agreement with the provincial government. Stetski agreed, saying that it was still a long way from happening. “This is very much just step one,” the mayor said. Coun. Angus Davis was also in agreement. “A few years ago when a forest fire was raging to the west of here, about six or seven miles, we were less than a day away from being ordered out of this community,” Davis said, “So if in the area close to the city boundary you can do some forest fire reduction work, then I think we should do it.”

Students create installation for Trout Hatchery Submitted

The Kootenay Fish Hatchery at Bull River now has a new display contributed by the 30 Grade 4/5 French immersion students from Ecole T.M. Roberts in Cranbrook. With the support of Karen Deibert, art teacher at Parkland Middle School, and Caroline Kelly, Bull River clay artist, the students created a variety of local fish species in clay over a period of several weeks. These are now displayed in a natural setting at the hatchery for all to enjoy. The classroom teacher, Janet Bishop, was astounded by the quality of the students’ projects, as they have had little or no training in working with clay. She also remarked that not one student was reluctant to donate their fish to the hatchery, as they were honoured to produce this display for

a location that is much loved by local school children. To celebrate their learning and their artistic creations, the students spent the day on Friday, June 14, at the hatchery. One special highlight was seeing two adult sturgeon. This project would not have been possible without the financial support of a grant from the B.C. Artstarts “Artist in the Classroom” program, Columbia Basin Trust “Wild Voices for Kids” funding, T.M. Roberts Parents Advisory Council donation, parent helpers, as well as School District #5 release time for Ms. Deibert. The students and Madame Janet would like to express their appreciation to Ms. Deibert and Ms. Kelly for their encouragement, leadership and the investment of their personal time to make this project a reality.

Popular market back for fifth year Cranbrook Farmers’ Market starts this Saturday next to Rotary Park Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

You know it’s summer when the Cranbrook Farmers’ Market begins, and that’s about to happen on Saturday, June 22. This year’s farmers’ market will run for 17 consecutive Saturdays – beginning after Sam Steele Days and running every Saturday until Thanksgiving, October 12. Until the end of August, the market will be on from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. In September and October, the hours will be 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. “We are headed into the fifth year of operation, so we are very excited about that,” said market manager Erna Jensen-Shill. “It’s looking again like another wonderful season. We have a lot of the favourite vendors coming back. People come to rely on their favourite borscht and their favourite vegetable growers,” she said. “And then we’ve got some fun new ones as well – a gal that is making frozen fruit popsicles and we’re going to have smoothies at the market this year. So there are a few new treats to look forward to.” This Saturday, the vendors who are kicking off the market will be selling goods such as artwork, pizza, pies, soap, veggies, pottery, bread, aromatherapy, cupcakes, mustard, toys,

The immensely popular Cranbrook Farmer’s Market is back for another season, starting Saturday, June 22, on 10th Avenue in downtown Cranbrook. jewellery and honey. You can also enjoy live music as you peruse the stalls, with busking encouraged. “The crowd enjoys them and generally they walk home with some dollars in their jeans, so it’s a real win-win. It brings a great atmosphere to the market and musicians enjoy the experience as well,” said Jensen-Shill. The market will go on whether there’s sunshine or rain – although so far they’ve been lucky. “Surprisingly in my four years of managing the market, we have not had inclement weather on a Saturday,” said Jensen-Shill. “We can only hope that will continue into this year, but yes, we are a rain or shine market. “If it happens, it’s a wonderful opportunity for people to drag out their rain boots and umbrellas.”

For the first time this year, the B.C. Association of Farmers’ Markets is providing funding for a nutrition coupon program. Through Bellies to Babies and the Women’s Resource Centre, low-income families with children, and seniors are offered $15 coupons to spend at the Cranbrook Farmers’ Market. “They get coupons to come down and purchase fresh locally made produce. It’s a great program,” said Jensen-Shill. When the market wraps up each Saturday, patrons can take a few steps into Rotary Park for the Summer Sounds concert series, running from June 22 to August 17. Organized by the Canadian Museum of Rail Travel, the series will bring local musicians to the stage from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. every Saturday. “We are happy to be a part of a whole package for Saturday down-

town in Cranbrook. People can come out and enjoy the market, grab some lunch and stick around for some music in the park and make a real day of it,” said Jensen-Shill. There will also be two night markets this season: one on Wednesday, July 17, and one on Wednesday, August 14, from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Rotary Park. “We are focusing on making those celebrations of local food, local producers, growers, makers, bakers, just a real emphasis on celebrating the local and having a downtown party along with the farmers’ market,” said Jensen-Shill. Live music at the July night market will be provided by The Rosie Brown Band, “a group of local area women who make some wonderful bluegrass, catchy, fun music,” said Jensen-Shill. The August night market will feature an open mic night arranged by the Cranbrook and District Arts Council. The farmers’ market has become a Saturday morning tradition in Cranbrook. “Patrons come out to enjoy the locally made, baked and grown experience, hook up with their neighbours and have a chat on the street. It’s a real meeting place. It’s very well supported and we’re so proud to be a part of that,” said Jensen-Shill.

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry


’m one week into my summer reading challenge and so far I’m really enjoying it. I’ve been sitting out on the porch with a drink and a book, soaking up the sun and stopping to watch the neighbourhood. I had some trouble choosing books for my reading list: I didn’t realize quite how many books in the New York Times bestseller list are parts of a series. Most of them are of the suspense, mystery or thriller genre, or a hybrid of all three. Trying to select a mix of genres is harder than I expected. * New beginnings, hope, and making amends: when it boils down to it, this is the plot of “The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry”. A newly retired British man, Harold Fry is at a loss for how to fill his days now that he doesn’t have work to take up eight of those hours. One morning he receives a handwritten letter from a colleague from many years past, Queenie, telling him that she has inoperable cancer, and saying goodbye. It unleashes something in Harold, something he had kept contained for a very long time. He crafts a letter in response to Queenie. It doesn’t really capture how he’s feeling,

SALLY MACDONALD and as Harold sets out to mail the letter at the end of the street, he realizes that no letter can. In his yachting shoes, without a cell phone and having never hiked before, Harold decides on the spur of the moment to walk across England to visit his dying friend, leaving his incredulous wife Maureen at home. The distance from Kingsbridge to Berwick-upon-Tweed is seven hours by vehicle, 151 hours on foot. That’s further than from Cranbrook to Edmonton, to put it into scale, although considering the size and congestion of England, it’s tough to make that comparison. There’s no way Harold could predict what happens as he walks across the country. He encounters cruelty, kindness and the whole spectrum between. He learns things

about humanity, about himself, and about his loved ones. At its core, it’s a journey of hope and healing. “The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry” is the debut novel from British author Rachel Joyce. It was a finalist for the Man Booker Prize, Joyce was named New Writer of the Year in the UK National Book Awards, and it was the best selling hardcover book in the UK in 2012. It’s easy to see why. At first, the premise of the book is hard to wrap your head around. Can we really believe that a 65-year-old man thinks he can walk across the country in his yachting shoes, with no previous experience, no plan and when it will clearly use up most of his retirement fund? Yet as the novel progresses, we start to accept Harold just as he is. He has such an unusual ability to draw confessions from perfect strangers, and in accepting them just as they are, we can’t help but show him the same courtesy. There is so much space in the plot for characterization, and that’s what makes it so poignant. I don’t mean to say that nothing happens, because that’s certainly not the case. But it seems that with every step Harold takes, we understand him and like him a little more. That’s even more true of

his wife Maureen, who stays behind and at first cultivates bitterness toward her husband, before going through a transformation herself. This novel reminds me of another British bestseller I loved, “Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand”. It’s almost certainly because of the English countryside setting and the vintage of the main character. But it’s also because both works demonstrate the redeeming qualities of human nature, and the importance of seeing through inconsequential differences to the true humanity we all share.

Chemical weapons and red lines


ool me once, shame on you. (The Taliban regime in Afghanistan helped al-Qaeda to plan 9/11. We must invade.) Fool me twice, shame on me. (Saddam Hussein is building weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. We must invade.) But fool me three times... (The Syrian regime is using poison gas against the rebels. We must help them with arms supplies.) There’s nothing left to say, is there? President Barack Obama’s administration announced last Thursday (13 June) that it will now arm Syrian rebels, since it has proof that President Bashar al-Assad’s regime has been using chemical weapons against them. He clearly doesn’t want to do this, but he has been trapped by his own words. “The president ... has made it clear that the use of chemical weapons or transfer of chemical weapons to terrorist groups is a red line,” said deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes, expanding on Obama’s statement. “He has said that the use of chemical weapons would change his calculus, and it has.” But in a further statement on Tuesday, Obama fretted that it is “very easy to slipslide your way into deeper and deeper commitments,” ending up with full-scale US involvement in the Syrian civil war. Quite right. So how did this very reluctant warrior wind up at risk of being dragged into yet another Middle Eastern war? By making a threat that he never thought he

would have to act on. Last August, faced with constant allegations that the Assad regime was using poison gas, Obama announced that such an event would cross a red line and trigger US intervention in the war. He was just trying to fend off demands at home for instant intervention, and made his promise in the confident belief that the Syrian regime would never Gwynne be so stupid as to do such a thing. Dyer Chemical weapons were banned after the First World War, partly because they were horrible but also because they made battle even more unpleasant without producing decisive military results. And despite occasional subsequent uses — by Egypt in the Yemen in the 1960s, by Iraq against Iran in the 1980s — the ban has mostly held ever since. It would clearly help the rebel cause in Syria if they could prove that the Assad regime was using chemical weapons. Indeed, they would make such accusations whether they were true or not. On the other hand, it was most unlikely that the Syrian regime would actually use its chemical weapons. It has such weapons, of course, like practically every other country in the Middle East, but using them would have no decisive effect in the kind of war it is fighting against the rebels. It would simply give the rebels a better argument for demanding foreign military intervention against the regime. So ten months ago, when he made his “red line” statement, President Obama was confident that Syria would never cross it. It

would be particularly foolish for it to use poison gas in the manner that is now alleged: in small amounts, in four relatively unimportant places, causing a total of 100 to 150 deaths. It just doesn’t make sense, either militarily or politically. In all likelihood Obama’s calculation remains correct today: Assad’s regime has probably NOT used chemical weapons. Yet the American intelligence services, or at least some of them, are telling him that this has indeed happened. Why would they do that? They may have just been sucked in by the steady flow of rebel allegations that Assad’s troops are using poison gas. Even good analysts can succumb to the line of thinking that holds that if there’s enough smoke, then there must be fire. You think that can’t happen? Remember Iraq? It can happen especially easily when the analysts or their superiors want it to be true. The rebels in Syria have been losing all their battles recently, undermining the widespread conviction in American government and media circles that the fall of the Assad regime is just a matter of time. So the desire grows in those circles to reverse that trend by helping the rebels directly. Even if Obama disbelieves the intelligence he is being fed, he cannot reject it openly, and he is shackled politically by his ill-advised “red line” commitment of ten months ago.

s lead minister for B.C. on the looming discussions with the U.S. on the Columbia River Treaty, Bill Bennett has no illusions about what the province might be facing on the other side of the table. “The Americans negotiate like the Boston Bruins play hockey,” said Bennett, referring to the elbows-up style of the team leading the Stanley Cup Final. “They are aggressive negotiators for their own interest.” He was reacting to recent reports from south of the border on the emerging American position regarding the treaty, most provisions of which are subject to termination or renegotiation with 10 years’ notice starting September of next year. The American agencies that manage the treaty, the Bonneville Power Authority and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, take the view that B.C.’s share of the downstream benefits from the treaty should be reduced by about 90 per cent starting in 2024. If that view were to prevail, then B.C.’s proceeds from electricity generated on the American side of the border, which brought in more than $3 billion over the past decade and a half, would be reduced to as little as $26 million a year. “No doubt they would like to pay less money,” said Bennett. But he says the U.S. side needs to recognize that for every cost associated with the treaty provisions, “there are some very important benefits in terms of flood control” on a river that wreaked havoc on both sides of the border before being reined in by a quartet of dams and reservoirs.

“The treaty has been a huge success,” he continued. “It’s the best functioning international water management treaty in the world.” Bennett is not new to this file, having made it a mainstay of his concerns since he first sought office in 2001 as MLA for Kootenay East, a riding squarely in the midst of the Columbia basin. Don’t go telling Bennett that the treaty has been an unmixed blessing for this province. Vaughn “It’s very easy, I can tell you, to go around the CoPalmer lumbia basin anywhere today and find people who were tossed out of their homes and basically told to move someplace else — given a chunk of land someplace that in most cases was not as nice as where they were living down by the river in the valley bottom,” he reminded the legislature in 2003. “So 2,300 people were displaced and 60,000 hectares of high-value valley bottom land were flooded. Numerous First Nations archeological and burial sites were submerged or buried.” He has suggested that next year’s opportunity to reopen the treaty could provide a basis for securing improvements. “Although I do not support terminating the Columbia River Treaty,” he wrote in an MLA letter published back in 2011, “I do support having an extensive discussion with the U.S. over issues such as reservoir water levels during the summer, about fish and wildlife investments and other social issues that were not considered when the treaty was first negotiated.” Today, he cautions against getting carried away by the temptation to seek im-

provements, given all the trade-offs that would be entailed in both countries. “It would be a little like letting the genie out of the bottle.” He’s referring to all those considerations that “were not considered when the treaty was first negotiated.” Essentially the treaty established a water-management regime in the primary interests of flood control and hydroelectric generation on both sides of the border. If it were to be reopened today, there’d be enormous pressure to revise the water-management provisions to the benefit of agriculture, the environment, First Nations, recreation and the fishery, to mention some of the more obvious possibilities. With that cautionary attitude in mind, Bennett will be presenting some options to the cabinet this fall, with a view to crafting a strategy for whatever unfolds next year. He’ll be working from a series of position papers and public consultations being assembled by BC Hydro. The giant utility is the lead agency for B.C. Hydro, for its part, is looking at three scenarios: Treaty Terminate, Treaty Continue and Treaty Plus. (Preliminary details are at blog. on the government website.) Nothing is final at this point, Bennett emphasizes. But British Columbians shouldn’t worry that the downstream benefits, or the treaty itself, is under imminent threat. “I don’t think either the U.S. or Canada will walk away from it any time soon,” he says, confident that both sides will be extremely cautious about letting that genie out of the bottle.

SPORTS BRIEFS Georges St-Pierre to face Johny Hendricks in November Georges St-Pierre will defend his UFC welterweight title on Nov. 16 in Las Vegas against No. 1 contender Johny (Bigg Rigg) Hendricks. UFC president Dana White confirmed the details in a text to The Canadian Press. The 32-year-old from Montreal has defended his 170-pound mixed martial arts championship eight times since winning it back from Matt (The Terror) Serra at UFC 83 in Montreal in April 2008. Most recently, St-Pierre (24-2) won a unanimous decision over Nick Diaz in March at UFC 158. The champion has won 11 straight fights dating back to April 2007. The hard-hitting Hendricks (15-1) has won six in a row since losing to Rick (The Horror) Story in December 2010. His last outing was a unanimous decision over Carlos (Natural Born Killer) Condit at UFC 158. Canadian Press

Top-seeded Raonic beaten by Dodig at Eastbourne EASTBOURNE, England - Top-seeded Milos Raonic was beaten 6-2, 7-6 (7) by Croatia’s Ivan Dodig in the second round at the Eastbourne grass-court tournament on Wednesday. The Canadian struggled from the start, dropping his serve in the opening game and then again to fall behind 5-2. He then failed to convert a break point as Dodig served for the set. The second set went with serve and Raonic failed to convert a set point in the tiebreaker before Dodig clinched the match. Earlier, Marion Bartoli of France withdrew from the tournament with a viral infection, giving No. 2-seeded Li Na of China a walkover into the quarterfinals.

Just hard, focused,” said McArthur. “Preparation starts now, officially, so it’s going to be a long seven months, it’s going to be a lot of dedicated and focused time, but man, I’m so ready for it now. “ He has a number of local training options, where he can get out and ply his trade, or he can get into his van and head over to Canmore in Alberta, where he gets together with fellow climbers to hit up challenging routes. There are also some other places on the international stage that can help with his training, he added. “I’ll be going into Russia and Korea for sure, and then a lot into the Canmore area,” McArthur said. “Definitely going to go to Russia and Korea and train with them, just because they are the best of the best and if you want to be the best, you have to train with the best.”

Blackhawks knot series with OT win NEIL DAVIDSON Canadian Press

BOSTON - Brent Seabrook scored at 9:51 of overtime to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 6-5 win over the Boston Bruins in a wild Stanley Cup final game Wednesday night. Seabrook’s shot from the point through traffic that beat Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask gives the Blackhawks, who never trailed going into over-

time, a new lease of life. The teams are now tied at 2-2 heading into Saturday’s Game 5 in Chicago. The Bruins threw everything they had at the visitors in mounting a furious comeback but came up short in the third game of the series to go to overtime. Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said he felt confident going into extra time, despite Bos-

ton’s fightback. “I still thought in the third period we didn’t give up a ton even though it was a 5-5 game,” he said. “We still had some composure going into the overtime. I thought the bench was where it needed to be and (we) continued to move forward. “But certainly they got the crowd (going) and we lost the momentum a couple of times. We had a nice lead, but they pressed. Their power play helped them tonight as well. But we did a lot of good things tonight. We’ll look at the positives and move forward.” It was a crazy contest, crammed full of offence, momentum swings and bristling with more than a little bad blood. At times, it

was like a violent all-star game. Chicago coach Joel Quenneville’s decision to reunite Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Bryan Bickell paid dividends. Toews and Kane each scored for the Blackhawks, with Michal Handzus, Marcus Kruger and Patrick Sharp getting the Blackhawks’ other goals. But the Bruins refused to keel over. Patrice Bergeron scored twice and Rich Peverley, Milan Lucic and Johnny Boychuk added singles for Boston, which found itself behind the eight-ball all night. It was a roller-coaster ride for the crowd of 17,565 - the 164th straight full house at TD Garden - as the Bruins trailed 3-1 and 4-2.

Blue Jays sweep Rockies to extend winning streak Gregory Strong Canadian Press

The KEYSA U16 team took on a squad from Coaldale on Saturday afternoon at the Moir Park soccer fields. The Sam Steele Days KEYSA youth soccer tournament was a hit this year and was organized by two new co-chairs at the helm.

Soccer tournament a big success: organizers Tre vor Cr awley Sports Editor

The KEYSA Youth Soccer Tournament went off without a hitch thanks to an army of volunteers that helped out a fresh pair of event cochairs. Attracting a field of 31 teams, co-chairs Juli Sebben and Kelly Epp were at the helm for the first time as event organizers, which seemed like a daunting task at first, until volunteers came out of the woodwork to help out. “The tournament itself went wonderfully, it went without a hitch, really,” said Sebben. “We couldn’t have asked for better weather. “We have to say thanks to all our sponsors and our community for all they did for us with

donations and supplies and things like that.” Set during a weekend that consisted of perfect weather conditions, teams occupied all five fields at Moir Park all day on Saturday and Sunday. Sebben said she was struck by how big the event was when she got a birds-eye view of the lower fields while on the upper level of the park. “We were looking down at the two games that were going on in the lower field and I was talking with [a friend] and I said, ‘Look at this.’ “It was end to end with spectators watching these kids play soccer, and we look over at the other field, and it’s end to end spectators and people laying up on the hill enjoying the sunshine and watching the soccer.

Sebben and Epp are on board again next year and hope to keep growing the event. “It was really a team effort and I think for me, that was the most over-

Camilo leads Whitecaps 3-1 past Chivas USA Monte Ste wart Canadian Press

VANCOUVER - Camilo scored two goals and assisted on another as the Vancouver Whitecaps beat Chivas USA 3-1 in MLS play Wednesday night. The Whitecaps (6-5-4) posted their second consecutive win - something they had not done since the first two games of the season. Chivas (3-9-2), meanwhile, has not won since beating the

Vancouver at home on March 30. Jordan Harvey scored the winner for the Whitecaps, who overcame an early 1-0 deficit, while Tristan Bowen replied for Chivas. The game was turned on its head in first-half added time as Camilo and Harvey scored two minutes apart to give the Whitecaps a 2-1 lead. Chivas saw its winless skid extended to nine games despite making an early impres-

sion on new coach Jose Luis Real, who made his MLS coaching debut after taking over from the fired Jose Luis Sanchez Sola. Bowen opened the scoring in the seventh minute from the top right side of the Vancouver box as a result of poor marking and questionable goalkeeping. Harvey allowed Bowen to move in and fire into the top left corner past goalkeeper Brad Knighton, who appeared to misjudge the shot.

It was Chivas’ first MLS goal in a month, dating to a May 19 game against Real Salt Lake. In the 33rd minute, Vancouver’s Kenny Miller fired a Camilo pass wide from outside the top of the Chivas box. But other scoring chances did not materialize until moments before half-time. Notes: Teibert’s two assists extended his club-record streak to four games. He did not record any points in his first two MLS seasons.

TORONTO - Early leads have been the norm, the pitching staff is rounding into form and confidence is growing by the day. The Toronto Blue Jays are doing everything right these days and it’s paying off with victories. Adam Lind hit a three-run homer and Mark Buehrle (4-4) worked five effective innings as the Blue Jays defeated the Colorado Rockies 5-2 on Wednesday to extend their season-high winning streak to eight games. Toronto’s bullpen allowed just one hit over four innings of scoreless relief and Casey Janssen earned his 16th save. “Everything is clicking right now for us,” Buehrle said. “I can’t pinpoint why everything is clicking but we’re getting a big hit, getting a big pitch when we need to, guys are playing great defence behind us. I don’t know what’s happening but hopefully (we can) continue it as long as we can.” Toronto (35-36) completed a threegame sweep of the Rockies with the victory and moved just a game

away from the .500 mark. The winning streak is the team’s longest since a 10-gamer in 2008. Neil Wagner, Brett Cecil, Steve Delabar and Janssen all worked an inning apiece. “What can you say we’ve been saying it over and over every day,” manager John Gibbons said of his bullpen. “There’s going to be times when they’re going to give up some runs but right now they’re on some kind of roll.” Jose Bautista got things started in the opening frame when he reached on a throwing error by third baseman Nolan Arenado. The Toronto slugger moved to second on a single by Edwin Encarnacion and Lind followed by launching a 2-1 pitch over the right-field wall for his ninth homer of the year. The Toronto first baseman has had at least one hit in 19 of his last 22 starts and is batting a stellar .340 on the season. It’s quite a difference from a year ago, when he spent part of the season in the minors. “It’s surreal,” Lind said. “Couldn’t have written that script.”

Canada falls 1-0 to Germany in soccer friendly C anadian Press

PADERBORN, Germany - Leonie Maier scored the lone goal of the game to lead Germany’s women’s soccer team to a 1-0 win over Canada on Wednesday. Maier launched a shot from the right side in the 53rd minute to beat Canadian ‘keeper Erin McLeod. The seventh-ranked Canadians have never beaten Germany, but had to have been pleased with their performance against the world’s No. 2-ranked team. Germany had averaged three goals a

game against Canada in the previous 10 meetings between the two teams. Canada held the Germans scoreless for the first 45 minutes for the first time in its history. “I think there were some real positives in there today,” said Canadian head coach John Herdman. “Defensively, we were able to hold them and there was some real resilience from the girls.” Added captain Christine Sinclair: “John Herdman has us believing that we can beat any team.”

Sports New NHL rule changes could be in place next season Mat the w C arroll Associated Press

BOSTON - Hybrid icing could be on its way to the NHL. The league’s general managers met Wednesday and embraced many of the changes recommended by the competition committee, including hybrid icing and the mandatory use of visors for all players entering the league. A blend of touch and no-touch icing that offers referees the discretion to blow a play dead will be in effect during the 2013-14 preseason. If the experiment is successful, hybrid icing will be implemented for the regular season, pending a vote by the NHL’s board of governors. Mathieu Schneider, a former defenceman who is now a special assistant to NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr, said both sides should have a better gauge by the end of the preseason whether hybrid icing is likely to pass.

“I’m optimistic,” Schneider said. “I’ve learned more through these meetings, watching videos and getting a better understanding.” The rule is designed to promote safer play, allowing a linesman to blow his whistle if he judges a defending player is likely to reach the puck first. “There’s different types of the hybrid icing that have been used in different leagues, so we’re still going to hammer some of those details out,” Schneider said. “But essentially it’s meant to eliminate guys going full speed into the end boards. “If it makes the game safer, it’s a great thing.” Dallas Stars general manager Jim Nill said he and his colleagues haven’t come to a consensus on the issue. “The players in the American (Hockey) League have a good feel for it. Now the NHLers need to get a feel for it,” he said. “I’ve seen it work in every league that uses it and it works

seamlessly.” The biggest obstacle to implementation may be how it will be officiated. “There has to be an outright win,” Schneider said. “If it’s clear that the forward is going to win the race for the puck, if there’s a dangerous situation, then the ref has the ability to blow it down.” Hall of Famer and Tampa Bay Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman said very few general managers, if any, favour no-touch icing, leaving the hybrid version as the best option. “Not that there’s many injuries on the icing now, but the injuries that are there are very severe, and we’d like to try the hybrid icing as a good compromise,” he said. “I’m hopeful that the preseason gives it enough time for the players to vote in support of it.” The general managers also approved the mandatory use of visors for every player enter-

ing the league. Players who have played in a certain amount of NHL games will be grandfathered in, allowed to decide if they want to don a protective shield. The topic was fueled when New York Rangers defenceman Marc Staal was hit in the eye with a puck on March 5, causing him to miss the remainder of the regu-

lar season and all but one of the Rangers’ playoff games. Yzerman, who wore a visor during his final season, thinks every player should have to wear one. “We’ve seen some serious eye injuries along the way here and injuries that can be avoided by simply a player wearing a shield,”

MIAMI - Game 7s do more than settle championships. They define legacies. No matter what happens Thursday night, LeBron James and the Miami Heat, and Tim Duncan’s San Antonio Spurs have already won NBA titles and secured a place in history. Now is their opportunity to elevate it. The truly memorable

teams won the hard way, and that will be the case for the one celebrating at centre court this time. It’s either a Heat repeat, possible only after James led them back from what seemed certain elimination in the closing seconds of Game 6, or the Spurs shaking off as gut-wrenching a loss as a team can have to become just the fourth club to win a Game 7 of the NBA Finals on the road.

“As a competitor you love it, because you know you have an opportunity and it’s up to you,” Heat guard Ray Allen said. “We have a chance in our building to make something great. All of our legacies are tied to this moment, this game. It’s something our kids will be able to talk about that they were a part of. Forever will remember these moments, so we want to not live and have any regrets.” Allen played in the game the last time the NBA’s season went down to the very last day, the Boston Celtics fading at the finish and falling 83-79 to the Los Angeles Lakers in 2010. That made home teams 14-3 in finals Game 7s, with no road team winning since Washington beat Seattle in 1978.

Overcoming those odds, not to mention the NBA’s winningest team, would make this more memorable than the Spurs’ previous four titles, though this is a franchise that never dwells too much on the past or looks too far into the future. All that matters is now. “You know what, it’s all about just winning the title. It’s not about situation or what has led up to it,” Duncan said. “It’s a great story for everybody else, but we’re here for one reason, one reason only: It’s to try to win this game (Thursday). We have had a very good season thus far, and I think we just want to get to the game more than anything. We just want to see what happens and be able to leave everything out there.”

Our Mission Statement:

Fostering a healthy business climate in Cranbrook & District

Business Advantages of “Seniorpreneurship” (Source: Small BusinessBC)

Since the 1990s, how people spend their time during their “Golden Years” has changed drastically. And as more and more Baby Boomers reach retirement age, a new class of entrepreneur has emerged: the “seniorpreneur.” Seniorpreneurs are defined as self-employed individuals who are aged 55 and older. The

number of entrepreneurs in BC that fall into this category has nearly tripled over the last two decades, growing from 55,000 in ‘90s to over 136,000 today. W h a t ’s m o r e , t h e growth of self-employed people in this group has significantly outpaced the growth of self-employed individuals in other age groups.

Today, becoming a seniorpreneur can often be an opportunity to vault a personal passion into a viable business. And as it turns out, being a business owner in this age group has a number of distinct advantages.

1. Decades of Experience It goes without saying that seniorpreneurs will

Bronze MedaliStS at SkillS canada nationalS 2013

bring decades of experience to their new business endeavour – an important quality often overlooked with so much media coverage of young start-ups today. Their previous experience and tacit knowledge can also help them recognize unique business opportunities.

2. Existing Networks Seniorpreneurs have already spent years building up a network of professional contacts, which can provide a huge head start over younger entrepreneurs starting businesses. Even if they launch a business in a completely different industry from their previous career, the personal networks they have built up over the years can be an invaluable resource.

3. Greater Financial Flexibility

time home ownership and growing families – many seniorpreneurs will have more flexibility to grow their business on their own terms. Their credentials and long-term financial records can also make it easier to obtain financing for their business.

Elizabeth Lake Bird Sanctuary – A place to visit this summer.

4. Different Motivations Many seniorpreneurs who are pursuing encore careers have different motivation than younger entrepreneurs. Rapid growth, wealth accumulation and success may be less of a priority, and they may be more oriented toward long-term thinking. In addition to these advantages as business owners, seniors also experience an important personal benefit from becoming entrepreneurs – the opportunity to stay active and socially engaged during their later years.

Three properties, totaling just under 2623ac (106ha), constitute the Elizabeth Lake Bird Sanctuary which is owned by the provincial government, under the jurisdiction of the B.C. Ministry of the Environment. The sanctuary supports many conservation values as well as recreational purposes. The wetland complex serves as an important resting and nesting area for many species of waterfowl and migratory birds. Mammals found in the sanctuary include deer (Mule and Whitetail), elk, Moose and Muskrat. A colony of Giant Copper Butterfly, previously unknown to British Columbia was recorded in the early 1990’s. Diverse vegetation can be found at Elizabeth Lake, including mixed forest hardwoods, conifer trees, and marsh vegetation. The area also hosts four known archeological sites where the story of use by Native Americans can be told.

Elizabeth Lake has benefited from various waterfowl enhancement projects over the last 30 years including the installation of nesting islands and loafing rafts by the Canadian Ducks Unlimited organization. A local volunteer, Art Gruenig, along with other members of Rocky Mountain Naturalists have played an active role in helping College of the Rockies maintain and preserve wildlife habitat around the City of Cranbrook, including the Elizabeth Lake Bird Sanctuary.

BC Chamber of the Year Awards Announced Vancouver, May 27, 2013 - Business leaders and Chamber of Commerce executives from communities across BC gathered in Nanaimo May 23 to 25 for the BC Chamber of Commerce Annual General Meeting & Conference to set the policy agenda for the coming year. As part of the conference, the BC Chamber of Commerce recognized local Chambers of Commerce that have made exceptional contributions to their business community with the Chamber of the Year Award, the most prestigious distinction presented to a member Chamber. The BC Chamber warmly congratulates this year’s Chamber of the Year Award winner and honourable mention.

Chamber of the Year 2013 The BC Chamber of Commerce is very proud to give the 2013 Chamber of the Year Award to the Prince Rupert & District Chamber of Commerce ( for the outstanding leadership role it has played in supporting the Prince Rupert business community through economic challenges, including a downturn in the fishing industry and a devastating mill closure in 2001.

T h i s Chamber has helped drive the development of a local cruiseship industry and helped boost regional tourism through a successful 2012 campaign inviting regional neighbours to “Stay, Eat and Play” in the community.

relevance to the Tofino business community and raise membership: it would bring top-tier speakers to town, by leveraging its network of connections and by seeking in-kind support from its membership to keep costs low and events accessible to the membership. Last year, this Chamber raised $70,000 in in-kind donations, such as event space and catering, and was able to host highprofile speakers including politicians Elizabeth May, Carole James and Naomi Yamamoto. This Chamber has also won local council support - and funds - to look at creating a local

economic development commission; breathed new life into a longstanding community dream to bring a “Higher Learning Centre” to Tofino; and secured matching funds to continue a popular Ambassador program, which enhances tourists’ experiences by providing local residents with knowledge about the community’s history, ecology, events and more. Quotes from John Winter, president and CEO, BC Chamber of Commerce: “The Prince Rupert & District Chamber of Commerce has been an

outstanding leader in its community, boosting morale and helping the local business community pull together and reinvent itself in the face of significant economic shifts and challenges. We sincerely applaud this Chamber’s strong leadership, tireless efforts and true northern grit.” “The Tofino – Long Beach Chamber of Commerce is an inspiring example of a small Chamber punching above its weight and helping to tangibly lead its community forward.

Insulin discovery enshrined in UNESCO Memory of World register C anadian Press

TORONTO — The original documents detailing Canada’s discovery of life-saving insulin have been inscribed into UNESCO’s Memory of the World Register. The Memory of the World Register protects and promotes documentary collections of global significance. The Discovery of Insulin collection from the University of Toronto Libraries records one of the most significant medical discoveries of the 20th century. The 7,000-page collection includes handwritten notes by Frederick Banting, Charles Best, James Collip and John Macleod about early experiments and the successful use of insulin. Patient letters and charts, photographs, lab notebooks and other documents record the

process of discovery and insulin’s development at the university. Banting and Macleod were awarded the 1923 Nobel Prize for medicine. To give credit, Banting shared his cash award with Best and Macleod shared his with Collip. The discovery of insulin in the 1920s had an enormous impact on people with diabetes worldwide. Prior to its development, the disease was mostly treated with a strict diet, which inevitably led to starvation if not death from the disease. When five-year-old Teddy Ryder arrived in Toronto for treatment, he weighed just 27 pounds. The following year, he wrote to Banting from his home in Connecticut, informing him that, “I am a fat boy now and I feel fine.’’ Ryder lived for more

the University of Toronto Libraries,’’ Anne Dondertman, associate librarian for special collections, said Wednesday in a release. “While preserving the orig-

inals, our innovative work in the area of digitization ensures that collections such as these are made accessible to both the local and international communities.’’

WINNIPEG — Buzz around the possible return of a significant Metis artifact has Manitoba’s Metis leader fuming. David Chartrand, president of the Manitoba Metis Federation, says thieves stole the bell of Batoche over 20 years ago and have tried to sell it to the highest bidder ever since. He says they have tarnished the historical significance of the bell and stolen its value from the Metis people. The bell of Batoche was taken from the Saskatchewan community of the same name when the Metis were defeated during the Northwest Rebellion in 1885. It was eventually displayed as a trophy in an Ontario legion hall before it was mysteriously removed in 1991. A Manitoba Metis group is hinting it has negotiated for the bell’s return and say they will make an announcement Friday.

Bill Bennett


Now sworn in as Minister of Energy & Mines & Minister Responsible for Core Review, I will spend much of the summer in Victoria. My office in Cranbrook is open for business and I am always available by phone or email and in person on Friday’s.


The Legislative Assembly will sit for a month, starting June 26th. The sole purpose of this short, summer sitting is to pass the balanced budget we introduced just before the election.

Cathleen Eddison, 89, left, may become B.C.’s oldest person to ever graduate high school this June. Here, she and classmate Adriana Peters, 80, study at the Agassiz Centre for Education alternative school.

Great-grandmother graduates high school C anadian Press

VANCOUVER — A great-grandmother who has waited 56 years to get her high school diploma says she can finally cross that dream off her bucket list after her grad ceremony today in Agassiz, B.C. Maureen Baker says she has attended several high school reunions with her classmates from the 1950s but felt like an outsider because she never finished school. Now, the 76-year-old will finally walk across a stage with two other seniors who have become like grandmothers to about a dozen

teens who attend the same alternate school. Baker says her granddaughter graduated from the same program last year and another granddaughter just got her high school diploma in Qualicum Beach on Vancouver Island. Math was Baker’s toughest course and English was the easiest because she’s been a lifelong reader. She says anyone who has regrets about not graduating high school should go for it because life is just too short to pass on something that important.



The legislative sitting will include Second Reading, which is a series of speeches by members from both sides and Third Reading or “Committee Stage”, during which Opposition Critics have opportunity to question Ministers about their ministry budgets. The Session will complete by the end of July.

KAMLOOPS, B.C. — Mounties in Kamloops, B.C., are investigating the sexual assault of a teenager at a bush party last night involving as many as 1,000 high schools graduates. Police say the 17-year-old girl became separated from her friends, was approached by a male she didn’t know, and was taken into a wooded area where the male sexually assaulted her. RCMP Cpl. Cheryl Bush says the event strongly resembles other recent sexual assault cases where witnesses to the assault have photographs of the

incident. Pictures of other sexual assaults have ended up on social media, resulting in charges against people for distributing child pornography. Bush says police would like this incident to end differently, with witnesses coming forward to present their evidence to police and not distribute it further. The RCMP had deployed extra resources to conduct road blocks leading into the bush part and there were several liquor and drug seizures made before the grads went into the event.

Canadian high school seniors in worse health than 1st-years C ANADIAN PRESS

WATERLOO, Ont. — High school may improve young people’s minds, but it does the opposite for their bodies. A new study out of the University of Waterloo shows Canadian students in Grade 12 are in worse health than their younger high school peers. The research, published in the latest issue of the journal BMC Public Health, found that by the time students reach senior year, they’re at a significantly increased risk for chronic diseases such as diabetes and lung cancer. It shows that over the four years of high school, the number of smokers went up 170 per cent, binge drinking jumped 167 per cent and marijuana use rose by 124 per cent. What’s more, the vast majority of students — more than 89 per cent — didn’t meet Health Canada’s guidelines for minimum physical activity and barely seven per cent reported eating enough fruit and vegetables.

The study’s co-author, Scott Leatherdale, says the fact that large proportions of graduating students fail to meet the most basic healthy living recommendations is cause for concern. Having even one of the risk factors measured can increase the likelihood of disease, and by Grade 12, the average student shows three, he said. Students in higher grades appear to be at the greatest risk, he added. “The only way to avoid a large future burden of preventable disease is to develop more integrated and real-world models of intervention in Canadian high schools,’’ he said in a statement. The study used data collected from more than 31,000 high school students in nine provinces who filled out the substance use section of the 2010-11 Canadian Youth Smoking Survey. The national schoolbased survey is funded by Health Canada and co-ordinated by the University of Waterloo.

This helps the lawn grow in healthy and thick. Once you have fertilized, don’t cut the grass too short. When grass is cut too short, the soil struggles to retain moisture, which can eventually lead to bald spots if weather conditions are dry. During especially dry periods in the summer, watering might be necessary. You won’t have to water frequently, but be sure to water deeply so the water can reach the roots of the grass. Pet Waste Waste from pets can cause bald spots on a yard. This might sur-

prise some homeowners, but pet waste contains a high level of concentrated nitrogen that, when applied to a lawn, can burn the grass and cause bald spots. Urine is most likely to cause bald spots, but fecal matter can as well. When addressing the problem of pet waste on your lawn, make sure no one else’s pets are the cause of the problem. Neighbors out walking their dogs should be discouraged from allowing their dogs to use your lawn as a restroom. If this does not work, (continued next page)

as possible. Watering the area within eight hours can significantly reduce the risk of lawn damage by diluting the nitrogen levels. Another way to address the issue is to encourage the animal to use various spots in the yard, rather than continually using the same spot. Flush each area with water immediately after the pet is finished. If the damage is already considerable, remove the damaged grass and reseed the spot. Mower Damage Sometimes Mother Nature and man’s best friend are not the culprit with regard to bald spots on your lawn. Human error can cause bald spots, too. Dull mower blades or grass that is cut too low can cause bald spots. Fortunately, this is easily remedied.

ConstruCtion Questions:

How safe is your retaining wall? “Who built this retaining wall?” is the question that Grant, a veteran backhoe operator wants to know. Why? It was this incorrectly built wall that could have badly injured him or even cost him his life. Frank’s retaining wall (built by a previous owner) was 8 feet high and 10 feet long and held back the front yard, supported one end of the deck

and butted up to the house. With that much height, there was plenty of room to stand under the deck on the gravel bed. The story begins when Grant gets a call to locate a broken water main line which enters Frank’s house under the deck, near the corner of the house and retaining wall. The backhoe is small enough to work under the deck to do the initial dig

and Grant piles the excavated gravel and soil away from the retaining wall. Grant, using best practices, is doing the final excavation by hand when he hears an unfamiliar sound. The hair goes up on the back of his neck as instinct sets in; he leaps out of the excavated hole and scrambles up onto the dirt pile as the retaining wall collapses right where he had been digging.

When the dust settles and Grant’s adrenalin levels return to normal he is shocked at what he sees. The retaining wall had been basically “free standing” as it had not been attached to the house foundation at all. It had been built on footings, but the footings were sitting on soil that had not been properly compacted. The combination of water seeping into the ground from the broken pipe and the excavation work increased the instability of the wall and was the “straw that broke the camels back”…in this case it could have been Grant’s back. The previous homeowner had hired a friend of a friend to help build the wall. It’s obvious they really had no clue of how to do it properly. And because they did not apply for a permit there were no inspections done. So…do you know who built your retaining wall? (Based on a true story, names changed)

FBI finds no sign of Hoffa remains Agency says it found no sign of remains of ex-union boss Jimmy Hoffa in suburban Detroit Corey William THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OAKLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A search of a rural field in suburban Detroit has failed to turn up the remains of former Teamsters union leader Jimmy Hoffa, an FBI agent announced Wednesday as authorities ended the dig. “We did not uncover any evidence relevant to the investigation on James Hoffa,’’ said Robert Foley, head of the FBI in Detroit. Authorities have pursued multiple leads as to Hoffa’s whereabouts since his disappearance in 1975. He was last seen outside an Oakland County restaurant where he was to meet with a New Jersey Teamsters boss and a Detroit Mafia captain. The latest tip about Hoffa’s remains came

Jimmy Hoffa is pictured in an April 12, 1971 file photograph. from reputed Mafia captain Tony Zerilli, who, through his lawyer, said Hoffa was buried beneath a concrete slab in a barn in Oakland Township, north of Detroit.

The barn is gone, but FBI agents on Monday starting poring over the field where it used to stand. Zerilli’s lawyer, David Chasnick said his client still believed the body

Grandma planning gruelling ocean swim THE C ANADIAN PRESS

PRINCE RUPERT, B.C. — A First Nations grandmother living on B.C.’s north coast is literally diving into the fight against cancer, with a 60 kilometre swim through frigid ocean waters between Prince Rupert and her village of Lax Kw’alaams (lacks-qwahlambs). Dayna McKay is no stranger to the challenging currents, powerful tides and unpredictable swells of the North Pacific, because she swam the route last summer, but in reverse. The 44-year-old has dubbed this leg of her Into The Sea Cancer Free trek as The Journey Home, reflecting her commitment to the battle against all cancers and her support for her uncle, Bill Sampson, who is diagnosed with the disease. McKay’s original journey from Lax Kw’alaams south to Prince Rupert spanned two days and required a dedicated support crew, and she expects her return swim will also be a

nearly 24 hour marathon. The mother of four and grandmother of two intends to dive into waters off Prince Rupert at 6 p.m. on June 28, and — with the help of a 7mm full body wet suit, fins and a support crew of five boats — plans to

reach her home shore by 1 p.m. on June 29. McKay hopes her journey will not only raise awareness about cancer but will also help First Nations youth understand that anything can be accomplished through hard work and desire.


was there. I would have felt a lot better if they had done the whole area. What if they went five feet over one way? Ten feet the

other way?” Chasnick said. Hoffa’s rise in the Teamsters, his 1964 conviction for jury tampering and his presumed murder are Detroit’s link to a time when organized crime, public corruption and mob hits held the nation’s attention. Over the years, authorities have received various tips, leading the FBI to possible burial sites near and far. Zerilli, now 85, was in prison for organized crime when Hoffa disappeared. But he told New York TV station WNBC in January that he was informed about Hoffa’s whereabouts after his release. His attorney, David Chasnick, said Zerilli is “intimately involved’’ with people who know where the body is buried.

UNICEF Canada to launch Syria appeal THE C ANADIAN PRESS

OTTAWA — The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is about to launch a 48hour emergency appeal for Syria. The goal is to help the four million children affected by the two-year-old civil war that the UN says has killed 93,000 people. The agency will start a special appeal to Canadians on Thursday asking for donations at to raise funds for immunizations, clean drinking water, education and psycho-social sup-

port to help children through the emotional trauma of the crisis. The emergency fundraiser follows an unprecedented $4 billion appeal for Syria by the UN earlier this month, the largest in its history. And it comes after this week’s G8 leaders’ summit, which affirmed the need for peace talks, but remained divided on the issue of whether or not to arm rebel groups — a measure Canada opposes for fear of aiding Islamic militants in their ranks.

Premier cancels political staff raises Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – Premier Christy Clark has rolled back salary increases for political staff, after getting an earful from voters. Clark told reporters Wednesday that salary increases for her chief of staff and new positions with the same title in ministers’ offices will not go ahead. “I have heard a lot from British Columbians in the last week about this issue of changing the pay scales and pay levels for political staff, so today I am rescinding those changes, because leadership means listening to people,” Clark said. “Although the original change would have meant we were underspending the budget by $100,000, I’ve heard loud and clear that people didn’t like it.” The lone exception is Clark’s new deputy chief of staff, Michele Cadario, hired for the premier’s office after serving as deputy campaign manager for the B.C. Liberal

Cadario will receive a salary of $195,148 to do the operations and policy roles formerly done by two people. Dan Doyle, Clark’s chief of staff, remains at the same salary as Cadario. A government spokesman said Doyle

never accepted any raise, but recommended the maximum for his position be increased to $230,000 to attract the best candidate for his successor. The top rate for ministry chiefs of staff, formerly ministerial assistants, will remain at

$94,500 a year. The top rate for them was first increased to $105,000, then rolled back to $102,000 before being cancelled. Five of the people appointed to those jobs have had raises cancelled. NDP leader Adrian Dix, contacted in Kelowna where he is campaigning in a byelection where Clark hopes to win a seat, said the raises show the government is “tone deaf” to the concerns of ordinary people. Dix said the decision to scrap the raises is “the first victory for Carole Gordon,” the NDP candidate in the Westside-Kelowna byelection. Gordon is running in the byelection called for July 10, after Clark was defeated by NDP candidate David Eby in a bid to retain her Vancouver-Point Grey seat. In the May 14 general election, Gordon lost by nearly a two-to-one margin to B.C. Liberal incumbent Ben Stewart, who resigned last week to allow Clark to run.

A beloved Syrian tradition – ice cream – sets up shop in Jordan Dale Gavl ak Associated Press

AMMAN, Jordan — For Syrians, no visit to Damascus’ Old City is complete without a stop at a more than century-old ice cream parlour in its main souq where you can watch them make their distinctive dessert by pounding it into shape with giant wooden mallets, then enjoy a bowl of it sprinkled with pistachios. Now those who fled their country’s bloody civil war can savour a nostalgic taste from back home. Damascus’ most famed ice cream shop, Bakdash, has opened a branch in the Jordanian capital, and both Jordanians and Syrians living here are flocking to it. With its mix of milk, gum Arabic and sahlab — a flour made from orchids — Bakdash ice cream is distinct from American brands like Ben & Jerry’s and Haagen-Dazs, which also typically ignite a craze when they open outlets in the Middle East. The traditional Syrian ice cream has a more elastic texture and slightly more perfumed flavour

than the Western versions. The Damascus landmark’s appearance in Jordan is a bittersweet sign of one of the civil war’s tragic repercussions: The dispersal of Syria’s population and culture. Jordan alone is home to more than half a million Syrians, out of nearly two million who have fled into neighbouring countries with no immediate prospects of return. The number is rising by the thousands daily, as life in Syria becomes more tenuous. Things are not easy even in Damascus, the core of President Bashar Assad’s regime, with prices mounting and the currency draining value. Bakdash’s owners — the third generation of the Bakdash family — still keep the Damascus parlour running. But they have set up shop in Jordan and the United Arab Emirates, hoping the new businesses will help keep the store at home afloat. The stores abroad could also be insurance for the future as the war, now in its third year, batters Syria’s economy and annihi-


Deterioration and resultant structural damage threaten the historic San Jose church, in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Puerto Rico church built in 1532 listed as endangered site Associated Press

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — A nearly 500-year-old church in Puerto Rico has been listed as one of the 11 most endangered historic places in the U.S. It is the first time the National Trust for Historic Preservation includes a Puerto Rico site on its annual list released Wednesday. The San Jose Church in historic Old San Juan was built in 1532 and is one of the few remaining examples of 16th

century Spanish Gothic architecture in the Western Hemisphere. It is the second oldest church in the Americas. The grandson of Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon is buried in the church, as well as Puerto Rico painter Jose Campeche. Government officials have been requesting donations to help restore the church, which has been closed for 13 years because of its deteriorated state.

In Damascus before the war, a visit to the Bakdash parlour topped the to-do lists for Syrians, tourists and other visitors exploring the winding alleys of the capital’s fabled Old City. Since 1895, the shop has been a fixture in the Souq al-Hamidiya, the Old City’s main traditional market. For Basima, a housewife who fled Syria seven months ago to Jordan, running across the branch in Amman was a cherished touch of home.

“Any name from Syria sounds wonderful to us,’’ said the 45-year-old woman, wearing a traditional headscarf. “My heart beats faster whenever I see Syrians ... When I meet other Syrians here in the parlour, I feel my spirit lift.’’ About half of the customers are Syrians, said the Amman branch’s assistant manager, Yarob Ababneh. The Amman parlour opened last month. “Once or twice I saw people cry,’’ he said. “Bakdash has been in Syria since 1895, so

those who grew up there know the place and have been there many times.’’ In front of the customers, Syrian ice cream makers pound the booza with large wooden mallets inside metal containers to get it into shape. Sometimes, the pounding sound resembles the fierce drumbeat of a belly-dancing rhythm. It’s then scooped and topped with finely chopped green pistachios — and the taste, some say, can touch heartstrings.

REHOBOTH, Mass. — The couple from Massachusetts had just finished off a bottle of champagne to celebrate their engagement on a Florida beach in August 2001 when they got a crazy idea. They wrote a message, shoved the cork back into the bottle, and tossed it into the waves off Tampa. The message read: “To whoever finds this bottle: may you be blessed as the two of us. May you find someone to love with as much compassion. May you find and keep someone who completes you. This is our message in a bottle.’’ They included their first names and a post office box in their hometown of Attleboro. Karl and Michele Kimmell, now the par-

ents of two children and about to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary, say they occasionally wondered if anyone had found the bottle. Turns out someone had found it, on the opposite coast of Florida. Michael Souvigny found the bottle in February while out hunting along in Green Cove Springs, Fla. He responded to the message, but his letter was returned because the post office box account was closed. At the urging of a friend, Souvigny turned to The Sun Chronicle, which published a story about the bottle. Michele’s sister saw the story and recognized the handwriting on the letter. She contacted the Kimmells, who plan on contacting Souvigny.

Aboriginal Training: Native plants for a sustainable future For many corporations and businesses in British Columbia it is difficult to find native plant stock to reclaim degraded lands. Therefore, these industrial clients and developers are increasingly searching for native species to sustainably re-vegetate their disturbed lands in order to re-establish functioning eco-systems. Because of this, demand exceeds supply and there is little representation in our province for indigenous plants within existing nurseries.  This burgeoning industry provides an incredible opportunity in resource-based communities for job diversity and job creation for the environmentally astute. Growing these plants necessitates creativity, aptitude,

and skill from growers and nursery workers alike. This year, in partnership with Royal Roads University (RRU), College of the Rockies, Keefer Ecological Services Ltd. (KES), Walter Energy, and many different First Nations Groups within BC, Tipi Mountain Native Plants Ltd. is developing and delivering community-based training in Native Plant Horticulture. During the training program, a total of 30

Proud to recognize

aboriginal candidates will cultivate the necessary skills to identify, propagate, and care for indigenous plants through five weeks of intensive course work. Interspersed with six months of job placement within the natural resource sector, the curriculum will be hands-on and exercised at the Twin Sisters’ Native Plant Nursery in Chetwynd, BC and Tipi Mountain Native Plants, Ltd. in Cranbrook, BC. This course work differs starkly from conventional academic or

technical programs; expert botanists and educators from KES and RRU’s Centre for Livelihoods and Ecology have developed a syllabus that utilizes aboriginal ways of knowing and competency-based assessments. In developing a technical skillset to match the existing ecological knowledge of indigenous community members, the program aims to support participants in finding meaningful employment within their home communities.’

Palace officials shed some light on Kate and William’s baby plans Martin Benedyk Associated Press

LONDON — With Prince William and the former Kate Middleton expecting their first child in mid-July — and much of the world interested in the birth of a future monarch — the royals’ office has released some of the couple’s plans, although many details are still being kept private. Kate has made several public appearances recently but is expected to keep a low profile in the final weeks of her pregnancy. Here is the latest news about the infant who will, upon entering the world, be third in line for the British throne. King or Queen? Royal officials can’t say — and it’s not because they are being coy, it’s because Kate and William have not found out — and don’t plan to. Pacing the hall or in the room with his wife? Officials said William

AFP/File, Leon Neal

Britain’s Prince William and his wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, arrive at Westminster Abbey, June 4, 2013. “fully intends to be present at the birth.’’ The birth is expected to take place at the private Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s hospital in central London. That is the hospital where William and his younger brother, Prince Harry, were born. Will the public know when Kate is admitted to the hospital? Officials said there will be no advance no-

tice. The public will be told once she has settled in her room in the early stages of labour, the spokesman said, anticipating that this would be within an hour of her arrival at the hospital. How will people find out that an heir to the throne has been born? This will be a mix of tradition and new social media. Officials said a

royal aide will emerge from the hospital with a signed bulletin on foolscap-sized paper carrying the Buckingham Palace letterhead. The bulletin will be given to an official who will be driven to the Palace, where it will be posted on an easel in public view in front of the building. At the same time the bulletin is posted, there will be an announcement on Twitter and the media will be formally notified. The document will give the baby’s gender, weight and time of birth. And the name? Not so fast. Officials said they don’t know how quickly a name will be chosen. When William was born, a week passed before his name was announced. Where’s Daddy? William plans to take two weeks paternity leave and then return to his military duties as a search and rescue helicopter pilot in Wales.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Your creativity seems endless to many people. You’ll hear news in a more open manner than usual; however, sometimes you can’t help but close down. Honor your unusual ingenuity, and toss it into the mix. You could be surprised by what you hear. Tonight: Ever full of fun. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You might encounter more obstacles than usual.

want to detach in order to see what is going on with him or her. Be careful, especially if you do not feel the same. You do not want to lead this individual on. Tonight: Where your friends are. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Don’t let someone ruin your day by giving too much power to his or her statement. Avoid playing his or her words over and over again in your mind.

Someone at a distance often serves as a trusted adviser. Seek this person out in order to get feedback on what appears to be a touchy issue. A child or loved one expresses his or her feelings in an unthreatening way. Tonight: Let romance in.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: Our oldest son, “Adam,” lives two hours away with his wife, “Eve,” and their three children. One child, “Hayden,” is Eve’s from a prior relationship. She married Adam when the boy was 3. The biological father is irresponsible and alcoholic but loves Hayden and sees him when he can. Hayden is now 13 and a good student, and he works hard to please his parents. We love and cherish him and consider him our own grandson. But we are heartsick that Adam and Eve seem to single him out for unkind treatment. They take him to task constantly for minor infractions. They fling insults and belittling comments at him. He is scolded for the tone of his voice, his posture, mannerisms and nearly everything he says. His parents sometimes make him stand in a corner. It’s humiliating for him. His siblings are not treated this way. Hayden is basically a good and decent boy, and his parents seem to resent him. We are worried sick that if this treatment continues, he will rebel, and we won’t like the consequences. Hayden deserves better. Is there anything we can do to help without offending my son? We once brought this up, and they resented our intrusion. We hesitate to take that road again. What can we do? -Worried Grandparents Dear Grandparents: Belittling, insulting and humiliating one’s child -- at any age -- is angry, inappropriate parenting. Since your son and his wife do not want your input, we suggest you offer to take Hayden for weekends or over the summer for a couple of weeks (or more) if you can manage it. He and his parents could use a break from one another. It isn’t a substitute for better parenting, but it will help. You also can suggest to Hayden that he speak to you, his school counselor or favorite teacher whenever he needs to talk. Dear Annie: We often have two delightful boys over to our house to play with our two sons. These boys are teenagers. We’ve known them for years. They are being homeschooled by their very caring mother. For the first time, the four boys were playing a game that required writing answers and reading them. As I observed them, I could see that the two home- schoolers were having trouble both writing and reading. I finally asked what the problem was, and they said they had never been taught to write in script. These are smart boys, but I worry this could be a real handicap for them in life. Should I talk with their mother or just let it go? -- Feeling Sorry in Vermont Dear Vermont: Fewer and fewer students are learning to read or write in script. With all the keyboards around, penmanship is rarely taught, and script writing has become a lost art. Will it handicap them? Perhaps if they have to read a note from Grandma, but otherwise, it’s unlikely. By the time they are looking for a full-time job, most of their peers will be in the same boat. Dear Annie: I must take exception to one of your suggestions to “Perplexed,” whose father insisted on hearing his voice every day. I think it is ridiculous to expect adult children to call their parents every day. I am a parent of a wonderful grown son and lovely daughter-in-law. I would NEVER expect them to call me every day. I would never be intrusive and barge in on them without calling first. Why do we allow family members to treat each other inconsiderately and without respect when we wouldn’t treat others this way? Parents need to respect that their child’s spouse and children come first. The kids might want to call or be with their parents more if it is not such a burden. -- Fran Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

In Memoriam

Gerald Kenneth Carr November 24, 1930 Father’s Day, June 16, 2013 Devoted husband, loving father, cherished Grandfather, doting Great Grandfather (Papa) and a true friend to all. Gerry passed away Sunday, Father’s Day, June 16th, 2013 at East Kootenay Regional Hospital at the age of 82. A Celebration of life will be held at Cranbrook Alliance Church on Sunday, June 23, 2013 at 3:00 pm. A more detailed obituary will be in tomorrow’s paper.

HENRIKSEN, Aksel Vagtberg 1927 ~ 2013 It is with great sadness the family of Aksel Henriksen announces his passing on June 11, 2013 at the age of 86 years. Aksel was born in Ubby Denmark to Kristina and Christian Henriksen and has four sisters Kris (deceased), Margaret, Olga and Mary and one brother William (Bill). Aksel will be dearly missed and fondly remembered by his family: his son Douglas and his wife Carol along with his children Dena, Michael and Joshua. Also his daughter Dianne Henriksen; and her daughters, Cindy Kooznetsoff and husband Darcey and their two sons Hunter and Tanner along with Krysta Robichaud and her husband Wade. a Aksel was predeceased by his beloved wife Peggy in 2012. Aksel was a devoted family man and a wonderful son, brother, father, grandfather and great grandfather. He started his career in Nelson BC for Canadian Pacific Railways working on the steam engines and after 44 years working for the railway he retired as a Engineer in Cranbrook BC in 1986. Aksel had many interests that kept him busy during his lifetime, but he was especially committed to the Masons, Columbia Lodge No 38 A.F.&A.M , the Gizeh Shriners and he also volunteered his time to the CP Pensioners assisting them in their monthly newsletters.

Lyndell (Bim) Brehm December 23, 1932 – June 20, 2012

To a loving Husband, Father, Brother, Grandfather, Uncle, Cousin and Friend: What would I give to clasp his hand, His happy face to see, To hear his voice, and see his smile That meant so much to me. The rolling stream of life flows on. But still the vacant chair Recalls the love, the voice, the smile Of the one who once sat there. He had a nature you could not help loving, And a heart that was purer than gold, And to those who knew him and loved him His memory we will forever hold. Nothing can ever take away The love a heart holds dear. Fond memories linger every day, Remembrance keeps him near. Always in our hearts.


Dad and Mum spent many years in Maui, Hawaii, enjoying their golfing, friends and many “Happy Hours”. He was also a Life Member of Rotary, receiving the Paul Harris Award. Dad will surely be missed as he was a very kind and loving man who would go out of his way to help others. His love of life for his family and friends was always shown through his laughter and jokes. He is survived by his son, Barry (Irma) and daughter, Sheila Hogg; 7 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren; also many nephews and nieces. His loving wife Lil, passed away in 1998 and son, Neil in 2008. There will be no service as requested by Dad. The family will lay him to rest beside Mum at a later time in Nelson, BC. Those wishing to make a memorial donation in honour of Norm may do so to the: Pines Special Care Home, 3862nd Avenue, Kimberley, BC V1A 2Z8.

In Memory

Ona Mae Smith March 1, 1920 June 22, 2012. God saw you getting tired, and a cure was not to be. So He put His arms around you and whispered, “Come with me.” With tearful eyes we watched you, we watched you fade away. Although we loved you dearly; we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands now rest, God broke our hearts to prove to us, he only takes the best. We miss you very much. Lovingly - Earl, Fern, Nancy, Faye, Howard, Connie, Jean, and families and friends.

Montreal will get its new, new mayor Tuesday S i d h a rt h a Ba n e r j e e Canadian Press

MONTREAL â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Montreal will have its next interim mayor â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the third mayor in less than a year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; by early next week. The city clerkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office has announced a vote will be held during a special meeting of council next Tuesday. A handful of councillors have been named as potential successors to Michael Applebaum, who stepped down as interim mayor after being arrested on corruption-related charges. For now, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pro-mayor will be acting mayor until next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vote. Councillors will have until Friday afternoon to put forth their candidacy, with a vote to come after the long holiday weekend in Quebec. The next interim mayor might not hold the post for long â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a municipal vote is scheduled for November and none of the presumed contenders are seeking the temporary job. There are currently 62 active city councillors on the 65-seat council and the new interim mayor must be chosen from among them. Of the sitting councillors, 41 sit as independents.

Mario Beauregard / THE CANADIAN PRESS

Montreal Mayor Michael Applebaum is taken away by police after being arrested at his home in Montreal on Monday. Applebaum, the man he replaced, Gerald Tremblay, and longtime municipal politician Claude Trudel have all quit their seats in the past year. Several councillors have said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll spend this week weighing whether or not to run. Two councillors threw their name into the hat on Wednesday. Francois Croteau, a member of Projet Montreal and an east-end borough mayor, was first to see the clerk and hand in nomination papers. Later Wednesday, Alan DeSousa, another longtime councillor and borough mayor of St-Laurent, followed suit. He said he reflects

the diversity of Montreal and insists he is clean with nothing to hide. DeSousa, a former Union Montreal member, said he has the experience and the understanding to pick up the slack for the time being. He said he thought about it for a while before deciding to submit his name. Applebaum was arrested by anti-corruption police on Monday and told he was facing 14 criminal charges related to city business dealings in his former neighbourhood. Applebaum says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s innocent and will fight the charges, which include fraud, conspiracy, breach of trust and corruption in municipal

affairs. He is being represented by Montreal lawyer Marcel Danis, a former Tory cabinet minister in Brian Mulroneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s government. Applebaum won the interim job last November with the promise of a multi-party coalition and a vow to root out corruption. He was the first Anglo mayor of Montreal in 100 years. He had replaced Tremblay, a three-term mayor, late last year after the latter resigned following damning testimony at Quebecâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s corruption inquiry. Tremblay has not been charged with anything. Applebaum is to appear in court later this year.

Reputed mob bossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ex-enforcer grilled Denise Lavoie Associated Press

BOSTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; An ex-hit man who admitted killing 20 people insisted Wednesday that he told authorities the truth when he implicated reputed mob boss James â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whiteyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Bulger in 11 of the slayings, but he acknowledged lying in the past, including to his close friend just before he shot him in the head. John Martorano is one of three former Bulger loyalists who agreed to co-operate with prosecutors and testify against Bulger at his racketeering trial. Bulger, the reputed former head of the mostly Irish-American Winter Hill Gang based in South Boston, is accused of playing a role in 19 killings during the 1970s and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;80s. On Wednesday, Martoranoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third day on the witness stand, he endured a stinging cross-examination by Bulger attorney Hank Brennan, who repeatedly challenged his truthfulness and his motives in testifying against Bulger. Martorano insisted that he told prosecutors the truth about the

role of Bulger and his partner, Stephen â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Riflemanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Flemmi, in various killings, but Brennan suggested that Martorano was a chronic liar who fabricated or exaggerated Bulgerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involvement so he could get a reduced sentence for his own crimes. Martorano served 12 years in prison after he cut a deal with prosecutors and agreed to testify against Bulger. Brennan brought up the 1982 killing of John Callahan, a Boston businessman who Martorano described as a close friend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You even lied to your best friend Jon Callahan before you murdered him,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Brennan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Correct,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Martorano replied. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me that was a necessity,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; the ex-hit man said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell him I wanted to shoot him.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Brennan also pointed out inconsistencies between what Martorano told investigators in the late 1990s and what he told jurors in Bulgerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trial this week. Martorano acknowledged that he originally told investigators that Flemmi was sitting next to him in a car and fired shots at James

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spikeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Toole as he stood behind a mailbox on Dec. 1, 1973. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Toole was killed because he had shot and wounded Flemmiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother. Flemmi was a fugitive hiding in Montreal at the time of the shooting. Assistant U.S. Attorney Fred Wyshak tried to rehabilitate Martorano in the eyes of jurors. Wyshak went through 11 murders and asked him if he and Bulger were involved in each. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Correct,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Martorano replied each time. Bulger, now 83, was one of the FBIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most wanted fugitives when he fled Boston in 1994 after being tipped to an upcoming indictment by former FBI Agent John Connolly. He was finally captured in Santa Monica, California, in 2011. Prosecutors say Bulger was a longtime FBI informant who was protected by Connolly and other agents in the Boston office. Bulgerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyers deny that he was an informant and say he paid FBI agents to warn him about investigations of him and his gangâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s illegal activities, including bookmaking, extortion and loan-sharking.

Fine art online auction house to open Aug. 1 in Toronto Vic toria Ahearn THE CANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO — A new online auction company for high-end Canadi-

io in Toronto on Aug. 1. The move means the former Mayberry Fine Art division of will become a separate, full-time auction venture.

an art is entering the market. Consignor Canadian Fine Art says it will officially open its doors across the street from the Art Gallery of Ontar-

Consignor will offer auction and appraisal services and plans to hold its first semi-≠annual online sale of premiere historical and post-war Canadian art in the second half of November. The new company partners are Rob Cowley, Lydia Abbott and Ryan Mayberry, who will act as principals. Cowley is former vice-president and chief auctioneer with Joyner Waddington’s Canadian Fine Art; Abbott is a for-

mer Canadian fine art specialist with Joyner Waddington’s and office director with Heffel Fine Art; and Mayberry is a partner with Mayberry Fine Art and founder of Cowley says the company comes at a time when more fine-art consignors and buyers are viewing the online auction world as a ``viable and strong option.’’ It also comes just a few months after Sotheby’s Canada announced it was ending regular

live auctions in the country. “What we’ve been finding more and more, certainly what I witnessed at Joyner, was the increased comfort and certainly the increase in quality and participation in the online field for Canadian art in Canada,’’ he said Wednesday. “Joyner, I think our first online auction we grossed about $60,000, and last year alone we did more than $1 million in online sales.’’

Consignor’s November online sale will have a full-colour and academic auction catalogue and will offer live previews in the gallery.

Culinary star in ‘Top Chef Masters’ THE CANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO — Toronto culinary star Lynn Crawford will compete on the series “Top Chef Masters’’ this summer. Food Network Canada says the celebrity chef will be among 12 acclaimed cooks from around North America vying for $100,000 for a charity of their choice. The new season of “Top Chef Masters’’ will debut July 24 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Food Network Canada. Each competitor will also be teamed with a sous chef. Crawford’s sous chef is Lora Kirk, who works with her at her Toronto restaurant Ruby Watchco.

They’ll battle to win the cash prize for the Odette Cancer Centre at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. In a new twist this season, each sous chef must also compete in an online competition hosted by Canadian celebrity chef Hugh Acheson. Every episode of ``Battle of the Sous Chefs’’ will lead up to — and have a direct impact on — the next on-air instalment of “Top Chef Masters.’’ Fans can get a sneak peek at “Battle of the Sous Chefs’’ when the first episode is posted on beginning Thursday. Crawford, former executive chef of the Four Seasons Hotel in

Toronto and New York City, has competed on “Iron Chef America’’ and starred in the series “Pitchin’ In.’’ She also owns the food shop Ruby Eats and is set to publish her second cookbook in September. Celebrity chef Curtis Stone returns as host of “Top Chef Masters’’ alongside new head critic, Toronto-bred Gail Simmons. Returning judges James Oseland, Ruth Reichl and Francis Lam will be joined by new judge, food and dining editor Lesley Suter. Celebrity guest judges this season will include Mindy Kaling, Busy Philipps, Kathie Lee Gifford and the cast of “Days of Our Lives.’’
