There are smiles on the faces of the hard-working volunteers at the Kimberley Helping Hands Food Bank, as once again the East Kootenay Realty Food Bank Duck Race proved itself to the year’s biggest fundraiser. “The Duck Race was again a huge success and hit a new record of $17,000,” said organizer Marilyn Jolie. “The community as usual helped make this the best race ever purchasing tickets and attending the barbecue. Audrey Welk, a local realtor, even had one of her clients donate $100 to the race proceeds.” The good news this year was that the ducks actually hit the water. The two previous years, Mark Creek had been running too fast for the ducks to be retrieved safely. Jolie said all the ducks arrived en masse at the finish line, but a clear winner was caught. “We got them all in the water and our guys at the finish line were so brave. Thanks to Darren Close, Michael and Harvey Jolie, Dave Clarke, and Devin Wilson who went into the water to retrieve the ducks.” First Prize was $1500, donated by Jolie, and it was won by Garrett Marshall. Second Prize, $150 gift certificate from The Village Bistro, two nights accommodation Rocky Mountain Accommodation, and two rounds of golf compliments of Kimberley Golf Course was won by Ed Bannantyne. Third Prize is $250 cash from Kaity Brown photo Meadowbrook Green Houses, The ducks hit the water for the first time in three years at the annual Food Bank July 1 Duck went to Maren Anderson. See DUCK, PAGE 3 Race.

The two grizzlies spotted on the ski hill last week are still there. Coun. Darryl Oakley says he spotted them on Tuesday evening near the T-bar hike. “There were two grizzlies right by the Easter Chair, Oakley said. “I couldn’t see if they were male or female, they were above me about 200 metres. But they were definitely grizzlies, you could see the humps.” Oakley says the bears were just foraging, but obviously have not moved on as you might expect them to after they were seen last week. “Usually you seem them once or twice and then they move on. These ones have been there a while. Everyone hiking the hill should be really cautious, keep your dogs on a leash, stay in open areas so you have a good view of what’s coming up.”

Boil water order lifted Water quality advisory remains in effect C AROLYN GR ANT editor@dailybulletin.ca

After an extended period under a Boil Water Notice, the order was lifted yesterday, although a Water Quality Advisory remains in effect. Testing shows that current water quality is FAIR according to Interior Health’s Guidelines. Interior Health recommends that children,

the elderly and persons with weakened immune systems drink boiled water when turbidity levels are above 1 NTU. Turbidity was in the 1 to 5 range on Wednesday. Although the rains and heavy runoff were over before last weekend, Mayor Ron McRae said hotter weather led to increased use of water therefore the large volume going through the system stirred it up again. Please check the City website at city.kimberley.ca for the latest updates on turbidity.

Local NEWS Open fire ban in effect July 8 Ba r ry Co ulter Townsman Staff

As temperatures soar in B.C. the danger of wildfires also rises drastically. Therefore, the Southeast Fire Centre has placed a prohibition on open fires in its jurisdiction. The centre, based out of Castlegar, announced Wednesday that as of noon, July 8, all open fires are prohibited in the area extending from the U.S. border north to the Mica Dam and from the Okanagan Highlands and Monashee Mountains in the west to the B.C.-Alberta border in the east. The prohibition is “to help prevent human-caused wildfires

and protect public safety,” the centre said in a release. “The prohibition will remain in place until Sept. 20 or until the public is otherwise notified.” Prohibited activities include: the burning of any waste, slash or other materials; stubble or grass fires of any size over any area; and the use of fireworks, sky lanterns, or burning barrels of any size or description. The prohibition does not restrict campfires that are a half-metre high by a half-metre wide or smaller, and does not apply to cooking stoves that use gas, propane or briquettes. Anyone lighting a campfire must maintain

a fireguard by removing flammable debris from around the campfire area and must have a hand tool or at least eight litres of water nearby to properly extinguish the fire. Make sure that that the campfire is fully extinguished and the ashes are cold before leaving the area. This prohibition covers all BC Parks, Crown and private lands, but does not apply within the boundaries of local governments that have forest fire prevention bylaws and are serviced by a fire department. Anyone found in contravention of an open fire prohibition may be issued a ticket for $345 or, if convicted in court, be fined up to $100,000 and sentenced to one year in jail. If the contravention causes or contributes to a wildfire, the person may be subject to a penalty of up to $10,000 and be ordered to pay all firefighting and associated costs. Crews from the Southeast Fire Centre have responded to 27 wildfires since April 1 (22 caused by humans and five caused by lightning), which have burned a total of 168 hectares.

ter the age. Scattered around town at many different Cranbrook businesses are some very well-dressed and decorated wooden deer. The public is invited to collect a quest form, which includes the necessary clues — rather like a scavenger hunt — and to then set about locating all the deer either hiding or in full view at various businesses and other locations within Cranbrook city limits. There are prizes for those who accomplish the task in the shortest time, whether it is a number of days or weeks. Forms will be validated on collection as well as on return and

entrants have a time period of six weeks, to accomplish the task. Winners will not be announced until the Cranbrook and District Arts Council’s 40th Anniversary Art in the Park Day to be held Aug. 24, giving everyone a fair chance at this self-directed search. On Aug. 24, the Great Artsy Urban Deer Round Up and Competition will take place and all deer, those on the Quest and those decorated by groups and individuals, will be judged. This special day will see all day entertainment including bands and local talent, the Lions Club’s wellloved art sale, artists at

work, art for sale, gallery readings and drama in the park. Those individuals, groups and families wishing to decorate their own deer may still purchase a deer from the Arts Council Office. They still have until Aug. 24 to decorate their deer. There will be prizes for child, family and group classes as well as the business class and we look forward to seeing how creative the public can be. All deer will be judged within their own class. All proceeds from these activities will be going to the Cranbrook and District Arts Council Building Fund.

COTR and Ktunaxa Nation partner to offer new In-Community Training Program For the Bulletin

Baby Jack Celebrates with Sarah Kennedy’s Grade 1/2 class at Marysville School!! With his parent Brianne, Jack has been teaching the children important lessons about expressing feelings, respect, inclusion, infant development and safety, and the power of a loving bond between parent and child. Roots of Empathy is an evidence-based classroom program that reduces levels of aggression among school children while raising social/emotional competence and increasing empathy. Jack and his mom Brianne have been doing baby visits with this class all year in the Roots of Empathy program facilitated by CBAL Coordinator Kim Roberts. For more information about Roots of Empathy or Kimberley CBAL programs please contact kroberts@cbal.org.

Your thoughts on chickens and rabbits There is no town hall meeting upcoming to discuss the issue of backyard chickens and rabbits in Kimberley, though it was reported in the Bulletin last week. Council has had some discussion on

the issue after a delegation visited with a request that chickens and rabbits be allowed in backyards in Kimberley. While a townhall has not been called, Council would be interested in any feed-

back on the issue. If you have an opinion on whether chickens and rabbits should be allowed, please email info@kimberley.ca

College of the Rockies and the Ktunaxa Nation have joined together to offer a Bridging to Education and Employment program within Ktunaxa communities starting this summer. To be eligible for the program, participants must be of Aboriginal heritage, 18-years of age or older, unemployed and not receiving EI benefits, or employed part-time and not currently attending school. The program includes four pathways to employment: health careers, trades, tourism hospitality and internal economy. Participants will have the opportunity to gain their BC adult Dogwood certificate, College of the Rockies post-secondary course credits, industry certificates, non-credit College courses and traditional knowledge. “Ensuring Aboriginal learners are able to get the education they need to join B.C.’s labour force is an important part of B.C.’s Jobs Plan,” said Amrik Virk, Minister of Advanced Education. “The Bridging to Education and Employment program will provide a vital link to support education and training pathways for people of the Ktunaxa Nation communities.” The aim of the program is to tap into the potential for growth, development and accomplishment within the Ktunaxa Nation, to enhance career prospects and to increase employability opportunities. The additional focus on traditional knowledge allows for this training to be a fully-rounded educational experience. College of the Rockies President and CEO Nick Rubidge is pleased to have the College involved in this new program. “We have worked closely with the Ktunaxa Nation for many years to develop educational opportunities and curriculum which supports cultural learning and facilitates post-secondary credentialing,” he notes.

New role for former mayor

daily bulletin

Cranbrook’s former mayor Scott Manjak has taken a position on the opposite side of the gavel. Manjak started work on Tuesday, July 2 as the Chief Operating Officer at ?aq’am (St. Mary’s Band). “As the Chief Operating Officer I am responsible for the day-to-day operations of the St. Mary’s administration and government, and I also work with Chief (Jim) Whitehead

and council on council initiatives, very similar to a local government role,” Manjak explained. Since leaving office as Cranbrook’s mayor in November 2011, Scott and his wife Raeleen relocated to Sparwood. Manjak set up a consulting business, and through this he began to work with the ?aq’am community. “There were some staffing changes internally and through those changes they approached me and asked if I was interested in filling this position on a one year basis while some of their staff were away,” said Manjak. The position will build in relationships Manjak developed with the community during his time as mayor. “When I was mayor we did quite a bit of work with the St. Mary’s community and council under the previous Chief

Scott Manjak Cheryl Casimer. We had council to council meetings on a quarterly basis with the community,” he said. “During my time in Cranbrook I created some really close friendships in the St. Mary’s community so it’s such a good opportunity to work

with folks that I really respect and appreciate.” It will be interesting to see how a local government is run from a different perspective, Manjak went on. “It’s very interesting because you get to see a different side than I have before. In my previous role mayor and council would make policy decisions and set direction of where we felt the community wanted to go and then it was up to staff to put those practices and policies in place. Now, being responsible for implementation, I have an appreciation of how the decisions were made and what some of the pressures were. So it seems like a natural fit to me.” Because the position has a 12-month term, Manjak will commute to ?aq’am from his home in Sparwood, where his wife works for the district as Director of Corporate Services.

KIMBERLEY NEWS July 1, 1954 Indium Invites Investigation Indium may be a 20th century Cinderella metal. Today it is little better than a poor relation but, with scientific fairy godmothers looking at new and wider uses, it could join the ranks of Canada’s important metallurgical products. Silvery white indium

is one of the softest metals known. Lead, the popular “sift” metal, is four times as hard. Indium is almost soft enough to be chewed like gum and a bar half inch thick can be bent by hand without trouble. Like its close cousin tin, indium “cries” or crackles when put under stress. In 1893, researchers Reich and Richter discovered a new element while analyzing zinc ore samples at the Freiberg School of Mines in Germany. They named their find indium be-

cause, in a spectroscope, it showed as a deep, indigo blue line. The discovery was not commercially important. Indium was too rare to attract attention. Tests showed that zinc ore, where indium is usually found, often contained as little as a third of an ounce per ton. Even by 1924 it was still a curiosity. At that time the world supply totaled less than an ounce. The Sullivan Mine at Kimberley, B.C., is probably the largest known source of indium. The

Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company of Canada Limited found traces of the metal in zinc concentrates being shipped from the property to its metallurgical plants at Trail. Extraction tests were started in 1940. Two years later 30 pounds of refined indium were produced in Cominco’s research laboratories. Industrial detective work traced indium through the complex lead and zinc smelting processes. A recoverable accumulation was found in one of the pro-

cess slags. At present Cominco could produce about 1,000,000 ounces of indium annually although production is much less due to the small demand. A reserve of 10,000,000 ounces is also available in byproduct stockpiles built up over past years. Indium is used as an indicator in atomic piles since radio activity can be induced easily in the metal. As an ingredient of solders, it lowers the melting point considerably. See Page 5

A huge thanks to everyone at the shop for there dedication to Matteo in his learning experience. Jacob Beattie and Parker Illis have been showing interest in audio equipment for years. So why not bring in the best from the area! Ray at Ray’s music has been in the industry for years, he shared his love and skills for audio equipment with the Jacob and Parker. We are lucky to have so many skilled mentors living in the community so it make sense to tap into those resources for our student population. If you feel you could provide a educational work experience for a student of McKim please contact Mr. James weir at james.weir@sd6.bc.ca or drop by the school in September.

COTR and Ktunaxa partner for incommunity training From Page 3 “This is a terrific opportunity for us to continue this valuable relationship.” Through her visits to area First Nations communities, program coordinator Jo Ann Smith has been impressed by the interest in the program. “At each community I visit, the program has been greeted with positive enthusiasm,” she says. “Potential participants are being identified and the Bands are very excited to have their members take part in this opportunity.” Funding for the program has

been provided through the Canada/British Columbia Labour Market Agreement. Under the BC Jobs Plan, the Government of British Columbia has committed to providing funding for community-based delivery of programs that meet Aboriginal learners’ needs.

The Way it Was From Page 4 An indium-tin alloy makes an effective glass-to-glass and glassto-metal seal. Applied to bearings in some aircraft and racing engines it has valuable anti-seizure qualities. Low melting point alloys of indium have been used in surgical casts, foundry patterns, safety plugs and dental alloys. It retains its softness at below zero temperatures. It is being used in some of the transistors that are replacing vacuum tubes. The surface has only been scratched. Now that a supply is assured, research may soon develop uses which will make indium a household word and another Canadian production achievement.

From coast to coast, one place stands out most “The Kootenays are marvellous, the Kootenays are best. Hurrah for the Kootenays, to hell with the rest.” Bill’s anthem

O

n the recent Canada Day, I was accosted by my neighbour of many years here in Cranbrook. Probably in order to test my mettle, he asked me what I thought about Canada and Canada Day. Alert for a trap, I was wary; when I talk to him, I always feel as though I am being interrogated; it can be extremely stressful. Like most Canadians, I suspect, my affable neighbour comes from an immigrant family. They’re almost sure to have been in this country for a couple of generation whereas my beloved and I have scarcely got our knees brown; we only arrived about sixty years ago. When we had our present house built here on the edge of Cranbrook almost fifty years ago, I used to visit the site and get in the way. I enjoyed talking to the bosses and their employees. It was like the Tower of Babel here with Dutch contractors, German stone-masons, Austrian electricians and Italian carpenters. They all used to get excited when boasting about their homelands, going glassy eyed over their native cities but, when I asked them if they’d like to go ‘home’, they re-

coiled. “You’re kidding,” they replied with varying accents, “We’re not stupid.” My family has prospered here too and that is exactly the way I feel about living in this country. Well, I mean, in this part of the country — I don’t have feelings about the rest of the place. I’ve visited Nova Scotia, stayed a while in Quebec and even learned some of the patois, le joual. I’ve also lived in Prince George but, when abroad I say I’m Canadian, I mean the East Kootenay. In fact, nationalism is a concept dreamed up by politicians. They’re the ones that get the maps drawn and then tell us who Peter we are. There was a show on TV Warland about the native peoples of the Brazilian Amazon forests who were being shown Google Earth pictures of the region and being permitted to try to point out the boundaries of their particular tribes. I bet they’re still having battles over that one. Try to imagine the First Nations of what was to be called Canada debating tribal areas 200 or so years ago. They’d never succeed. For the Blackfoot, the Cree, the Inuit, the Algonquin and even the local Ktunaxa the boundaries would change with the varying strengths of their tribal neighbours. After all, they didn’t get from Asia all the way south to Tierra del Fuego by staying put. Then the Europeans butted in and pushed and shoved until, in 1867, the

politicians created a nation and called it Canada and drew the present maps, and those that lived there suddenly found themselves being Canadians. Nationalism is an idea that can be utilized by politicians in order to rouse the people in case of war. Imagine taking men from Vancouver Island, from the Yukon and the prairies, from Quebec and Newfoundland and putting them into an army and labelling them CANADA so that they can mutilated in some foreign war. Those that survive will come home to their diverse familiar environments and, very soon, forget the silly nationalism that had been foisted on them. Most Canadians, as I’ve always done, might use the word when they are far from home in some foreign land because they don’t want to be suspected of being British or American but, once home, they’ll think of themselves as belonging to a friendly community like The Kootenays. However, even though the National government has taxed the hell out of me over the years, now that I’m old, the pension service has been good and, thanks to Tommy Douglas’ determination, we have Medicare. So I guess I am a Canadian. I’m glad I chose to live here in the East Kootenay. I’ve been welcomed, but don’t expect me to make a to-do with fireworks about it, even once a Peter Warland is a Kootenarian citizen living in Cranbrook.

Old brick building The brick building behind City Hall needs our help. This building was home to Cranbrook City’s Water and Electrical Department for decades. It played a vital role in the development of our community from the 1930s until the ‘70s. It was constructed from locally made bricks, and has a unique architectural design. It has stood for nearly 80 years, and now the city wants to demolish it. Knock down another piece of our heritage. And why? Recently, two members of our group of volunteers spoke before city council proposing to restore the building with minimal cost to the city. The $134,000 estimate the city had to repair the building kept being brought up. However this estimate is apples to oranges. It includes many unnecessary upgrades that the building does not require. Anyone can get a copy of this estimate from City Hall. The city only had one estimate done. If you needed new tires for your car and got an estimate for $10,000 to put on new tires, would you scrap your car? Or maybe get another estimate? We are proposing to repair the building at almost no cost to the city, with volunteer labour and support from local businesses. It’s a win-win. We fix a historic building and they get to use it. And our community

preserves a piece of its history. Preserving a historic building would be a feather in the city’s cap; knocking it down would be quite the opposite. Remember the original post office? In 1973 the city decided to demolish the Masonic Temple on 11th Avenue. Because of concerned citizens, that decision was reversed and The Studio Stage Door has been standing proudly for another 40 years. There were fireworks on Canada Day after all, because citizens worked together for something they felt was important and raised the money. Citizens who take action can make things happen. Many people have written to city council in support of saving the building.   We need more people to speak up and tell the city that this building deserves to be saved. What’s the hurry to knock it down? Maybe city council can be convinced to reconsider. This is part of Cranbrook’s heritage. Here’s the opportunity to do your part. Go to the city website and send a message to council — www.cranbrook.ca/ mayor-and-council/78-council-information. Or call me at 250-489-4286 to add yourself to the list of supporters. A Facebook page has just been created as well: Save Cranbrook City’s Waterworks and Electrical Department Building — www.facebook.com/SaveTheLittleBrick-

Garage. There is a petition to save the building that anyone can sign if they want to see the building saved. We will be set up at this Saturday’s Farmers’ Market. It’s up to us to preserve our city’s heritage. Ken Haberman Cranbrook

Misuse of symbols As an American I am offended by the picture you posted of Lady Liberty and Justice kissing with the DOMA paper in her hand. Everyone has a right to their opinion on this matter. But as one of the many who have served our countries’ armed forces, many of whom have bled and died for freedom, I feel what you published was demeaning to those of us of the Christian faith who believe in a God of Justice who loves all people. To use the picture of the symbols of freedom and justice for my country turns my stomach. God bless you and enjoy the freedom that good men and women have died for, as we both celebrate the births of our nations. Larry J. Sims MSgt, US Air Force, Retired Cranbrook

Summer reading challenge

The troubled life of Dolores Price

I

got stuck in the bathtub several times this week. Not stuck in a I’ve-fallen-and-I-can’t-get-up kind of way. I was stuck because I was frozen to the spot as the water grew cold, immobilized because I was so worried about Dolores Price. “She’s Come Undone” by Wally Lamb is not a recent novel: it was written back in 1992, subsequently made the New York Times bestseller list in the 1990s and was chosen as an Oprah’s Book Club selection in 1996. This novel was a finalist in the 1992 Los Angeles Times Book Awards, and was named a notable book of the year by the New York Times Book Review. The novel, Lamb’s first, follows the troubled life of Dolores Price. We meet Dolores in 1956 when she’s just a little girl, innocent and unaware of the growing tension in her parents’ marriage. When we say goodbye to Dolores, it’s the 1990s and she’s in her late 30s. In between, Dolores puts up with so much strife that it’s quite remarkable she makes it

Sally MacDonald out alive. She almost doesn’t, as the novel’s name gives away. Set in America’s wonder years of the 1950s, Dolores’s childhood is a long way from idyllic. Before she reaches high school, Dolores has been surrounded by infidelity, mental illness, divorce, poverty and rape. Awash in a sea of self-loathing, Dolores is completely unable to help herself, and refuses to accept help from the few people in her life who genuinely love and care for her. As she grows up, fresh disasters beat at her like waves with every turn of the tide. Sometimes she shoulders them like a trooper, but inevi-

tably the burdens become too much to bear. Dolores moves through life like she’s swimming up a murky river, blind to what’s around her, trapped in her body, her state of mind, her hatred of herself and anger against the world. There were times during this book where I abhorred Dolores, where my compassion was completely worn out, my patience used up, where I wanted to grab her and shake her for the decisions she was

Letters to the Editor

making. The girl goes through a lot, a heck of a lot more than any one person can be expected to bare, and the fact that she cracks up is completely understandable. It just takes so darn long for Dolores to stop making things worse for herself, to ask for help instead of shutting off any sort of help that’s offered to her. When she finally does, well, of course it’s not an easy road. Nothing in life comes easy for this woman. It’s one leap forward, one step backward every day, or so it seems. But by the end of the book, despite her flaws, I grew to love Dolores. More than that, I admired her. I could learn a few things from her. I want to be her friend. Tough, frustrating, rude, strong, stubborn and beautiful: “She’s Come Undone” is a masterpiece in character development. I’ll never forget Dolores Price. Now quick, onto the next book before I start crying. Sally MacDonald is a reporter with the Cranbrook Daily Townsman.

Jarret Stoll hospitalized after suffering seizure LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles Kings centre Jarret Stoll was hospitalized Wednesday after suffering a seizure. The Los Angeles Times reported that Stoll fell ill at his Hermosa Beach home. Kings general manager Dean Lombardi told the Times that he visited Stoll in the hospital and the “bottom line is that he’s fine. Now the issue is what caused it.” The Kings did not immediately respond to an Associated Press email seeking comment on Stoll’s condition Wednesday. The 31-year-old Stoll missed all but the first game of the Kings’ second-round playoff series against the Sharks after suffering a concussion following a hit by San Jose’s Raffi Torres. He returned in time for the Western Conference finals against the Chicago Blackhawks. Stoll also suffered a concussion during the 200607 season while playing for the Edmonton Oilers.

Rangers add Manny Ramirez on minor league deal ARLINGTON, Texas - Manny Ramirez is apparently cutting his long dreadlocks for another shot at the major leagues. The Texas Rangers said Wednesday they had agreed to terms on a minor league contract with the 41-year-old slugger, who hasn’t played in the big leagues since 2011 with Tampa Bay. Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said part of the deal was Ramirez, twice suspended for testing positive for banned drugs, agreeing to cut his hair and “comply with our minor league rules on appearance and discipline.” Ramirez was set to report to Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday, and he will be a designated hitter whenever he is activated. He played for three months in Taiwan before leaving the Rhinos on June 20. Ramirez hit .352 with eight homers and 43 RBIs for the Rhinos. The team tried to keep the 12-time All-Star, but he wanted to return to his family in New York. Daniels said Ramirez was looking for an opportunity to play either in the United States or Japan. Ramirez was suspended for 50 games in 2009 while with the Dodgers after testing positive for a banned drug. He retired in April 2011 instead of serving a 100-game ban for a second positive test, but later agreed to a reduced 50-game suspension and played in the minors for Oakland in 2012. Associated Press

CHL IMPORT DRAFT

Ice add two players in import draft TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Kootenay Ice will feature some European flavour on the roster this year, after making two selections in the CHL Import Draft on Wednesday. With the first pick, the club welcomed defenceman Rinat Valiev into the fold, making it the first time in franchise history that a Russian is a part of the team. The Ice swung for the fences with their second selection, picking Artturi Lehkonen out of Finland.

Ice GM Jeff Chynoweth’s biggest need was beefing up the defensive corps, which he addressed with the selection of Valiev at 25th overall. Though Valiev is of Russian descent, he spent last season in the USHL with the Indiana Ice, appearing in 15 games.

“We needed somebody who could play immediately. We don’t have time to develop. We need someone who can play big minutes for us sooner, rather than later.” Jeff Chynoweth He suffered an injury that kept him out of the U18 World Championships, where he would’ve played for his home country, and was ranked 142nd overall in the final NHL Central Scouting rankings before the 2013 NHL Draft. Listed as a 6’1” 190pound blueliner, Chynoweth said he

wants Valiev to slide right into the back end and take on big minutes and responsibilities. “All reports are is he is a good skating defenceman that can play anywhere in the lineup from one through six on the back end,” said Chynoweth, “and from our end, going into this, we needed somebody who could play immediately. We don’t have time to develop. We need someone who can play big minutes for us sooner, rather than later.” An added bonus is his language skills and familiarity with North American culture, as he’s able to speak fluent English based on his experience in the USHL while living in Indiana. When the second round of the import draft came around, Chynoweth decided to go big or go home with the 85th overall pick in Lehkonen. Lehkonen, a Finnish forward, was picked up in the second round of the NHL Draft last Sunday by the Montreal Canadiens, and is currently playing professional hockey in his home

A few forwards that Chynoweth had on his list were scooped up right before his second round pick, and he decided to take a chance on Lehkonen, who’s fate is in control by the Canadiens. “It’s a huge longshot,” said Chynoweth. “We’re swinging for the fence and hoping and praying that maybe Montreal signs him and brings him over here and feels that major-junior is best for his development.”

Lehkonen is billed as a speedy and skilled forward who had 30 points in 45 games with KalPa in the Finnish Elite League, where he is a 17-year-old playing among men. The Vancouver Giants had the first overall selection, using it to take defenceman Dmitry Osipov, out of Russia. NOTES: The CHL Import Draft allowed goaltenders to be picked in the first round this year. Euro goalies are banned from now on.

Murray makes it into Wimbledon semifinal Howard Fendrich Associated Press

LONDON - When Any Murray dropped the first two sets of his Wimbledon quarterfinal Wednesday, the 15,000 Centre Court spectators were reduced to a silence so complete that birds could be heard chirping. By the time his fiveset comeback was nearly complete, more than two hours later, the fans were greeting each point that went Murray’s way with celebrations of the sort normally reserved for a championship. It’s been 77 years since a British man won the country’s Grand Slam tennis tournament, and thanks to the second-seeded Murray’s 4-6, 3-6, 6-1, 6-4, 7-5 victory over 54thranked Fernando Verdasco, the locals still can hold out hope the wait will end Sunday. Murray will play in the semifinals at the All England Club for the fifth consecutive year Friday, facing No. 24 Jerzy Janowicz of Poland. The other semifinal is No. 1 Novak Djokovic of Serbia against No. 8 Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina. There is no doubt who will be the recipient of the most boisterous support. “Great atmosphere at

the end of the match. ... I love it when it’s like that. It was extremely noisy,” said Murray, who lost last year’s Wimbledon final to Roger Federer. “They were right into it, pretty much every single point.” Murray needed to summon some strong tennis, and plenty of grit, for his seventh career victory. He never panicked - no matter what all of his self-admonishing muttering and gesticulating looked like - and eventually figured out how to handle Verdasco’s powerful serves and high-risk, high-reward style. “When you play more and more matches, and gain more experience, you understand how to turn matches around and how to change the momentum of games,” Murray said. “Maybe when I was younger, I could have lost that match. But I’ve learnt how to come back from tough situations more as I got older.” He’s only 26, but he truly has matured as a player over the past 12 months. After shedding tears following the 2012 Wimbledon final, Murray returned to the same spot four weeks later and beat Federer to win a gold medal at the London Olympics. Then, at the U.S. Open in September, he defeated

Djokovic to win his first Grand Slam title. Wednesday’s other quarterfinals lasted a mere three sets each and the most compelling segments came at the very beginning of 2009 U.S. Open champion del Potro’s 6-2, 6-4, 7-6 (5) win against No. 4 David Ferrer, and the very end of Janowicz’s 7-5, 6-4, 6-4 victory over 130th-ranked Lukasz Kubot in the first Grand Slam match between two men from Poland. Janowicz, 22, reached his first major semifinal - the first for a man from his country by pounding down 30 aces, and saving all six break points he faced. When it finished, Kubot walked around the net to Janowicz’s side of the court and the pair of

Davis Cup teammates embraced and exchanged shirts. Janowicz sat in his sideline chair, covered his face and sobbed. “It’s not easy to control all of the feelings in-

side my body,” he said. “I was never in (a major) quarterfinal before. I never had a chance to be in (the) semifinal of a Grand Slam. I never played against Lukasz before.”

Coyotes finally gain stability with arena lease agreement vote John Marshall Associated Press

GLENDALE, Ariz. The Phoenix Coyotes have spent the past four years living with the financial restraints of being run by the NHL, making the best of the limited resources before them. After Tuesday night’s Glendale City Council vote in favour of an arena lease agreement

with a prospective team owner, the Coyotes will finally be on even financial footing with the rest of the league. “The only way you can win long-term is to have a strong ownership,” Coyotes general manager Don Maloney said. “Now that we have an ownership in place, it gives us a chance, gives us a little more of a chance to show that

we know what we’re doing.” The Coyotes had been searching for an owner since Jerry Moyes took the team into bankruptcy in 2009. After numerous false starts with potential owners and constant rumours of relocation, the Coyotes found a perfect suitor in Renaissance Sports and Entertainment.

Ovechkin named to NHL all-star teams at right and left wing Stephen Whyno Canadian Press

TORONTO - Alex Ovechkin made NHL history, but not because of his accomplishments in his MVP season. The Washington Capitals star was voted an NHL all-star firstteam right wing, and because of a voting error also was named to the second team at left

wing. Ovechkin’s position-switch was one of the top stories of the lockout-shortened season, as he played 44 of 48 games as a right-winger. Ovechkin played four games at left wing early in the season alongside linemates Jay Beagle and Joey Crabb. He scored two goals in

those four games, both on the power play. Once Ovechkin adjusted to right wing, he finished the season with 23 goals in 23 games and won the Hart Trophy. General manager George McPhee said Ovechkin’s third MVP was more special because of the work it took to achieve it.

Riders hold off on debuting Simon Dan R alph Canadian Press

Geroy Simon’s much-anticipated debut with the Saskatchewan Roughriders will have to wait another week. Head coach Corey Chamblin announced Wednesday that Simon, a key off-season acquisition, won’t play Friday in Saskatchewan’s home opener against the Calgary Stampeders. Simon missed the Riders’ season-opening 39-18 win over the Edmonton Eskimos with a leg injury. With the Riders hosting this year’s Grey Cup, GM Brendan Taman was busy this off-season tweaking his roster to make a run at the CFL title. He signed defensive back Dwight Anderson, linebackers Rey Williams and Tristan Black and defensive linemen John Chick and Ricky Foley as free agents while trading with Hamilton for defensive lineman Jermaine McElveen. But his biggest off-season move was landing Simon from the B.C. Lions in January. The sixfoot, 198-pound Simon is the CFL’s all-time receiving yards leader (15,787) and needs just 29 catches to break Ben Cahoon’s league mark of 1,017 career receptions. Simon was part of two Grey

Cup-winning teams and a sixtime all-star over 12 seasons in B.C. But he missed five games last year with hamstring ailments that limited him to 54 catches for 700 yards and two TDs. It marked the first time in 10 seasons Simon hadn’t cracked the 1,000-yard receiving plateau. Saskatchewan is looking for the 37-year-old Simon to return to form and provide veteran leadership for a young receiving corps anchored by speedy Weston Dressler (94 catches, 1,206 yards, 13 TDs). On Tuesday, the Riders released receiver Greg Carr, prompting suggestions the club was paving the way for Simon to make his debut with the club Friday. Saskatchewan last won the Grey Cup in 2007 but the past two years the team representing the host city has won the CFL title. The B.C. Lions defeated the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 34-23 at B.C. Place in 2011 before the Toronto Argonauts beat the Calgary Stampeders 35-22 last November at Rogers Centre. Blistering start It didn’t take CFL offences long to dispel the popular notion that defences have the advantage to start the regular season. A total of 277 points were

scored in last week’s four opening games, or an average of 69.3 per contest. Last season, the league average was 51.8 points per game. What’s more, fans were treated to an average of 755.3 yards of net offence per contest, including 577.3 yards passing. Last year’s average was 552.3 yards. More surprising, though, was the average of 214 yards rushing per game, compared to 209 in 2012. CFL teams also scored 30 touchdowns (20 passing, five rushing, two on defence, two punt returns, one kickoff return) and booted 18 field goals last week. Offences averaged an amazing 7.2 yards on first down. Toronto and Hamilton hooked up for quite an offensive display Friday night at Rogers Centre, combining for 936 net offensive yards in the Argonauts’ 39-34 victory. And that didn’t include a 104-yard kickoff return TD by Tiger-Cats’ rookie Lindsey Lamar. Attendance was also up as the average gathering was 31,462 compared to 28,191 last year. Calgary running back Jon Cornish had 172 yards rushing on 24 carries in the Stampeders’ 44-32 win over B.C. The CFL’s top Canadian last season had six carries of 10 or more yards against the Lions.

An adventure in the Amazon jungle

R

Maritime Travel’s Carla Nelson has just returned from an exotic vacation at the remote Sandoval Lodge in Peru

ecently I travelled to Peru and experienced the remoteness of

the jungle. The Sandoval Lake Lodge is accessed by the Madre de Dios River, a tributary of the mighty Amazon River, and located on an oxbow lake called Sandoval. This is what I mean by remote: we flew into Puerto Maldonado, a city of 100,000 people, the gateway to the Peruvian jungle. Upon arrival, we were transported a short distance to a building where we repacked only the items that we would need for the next three days; our main luggage would stay behind. Our duffle bags were then loaded onto the roof of our shuttle van and strapped down as we headed off for our ride over rough dirt roads to the river. Here we embarked on our transport down the river, a 20-passenger long, covered aluminum boat with a big motor and a couple of guides. During our 45-minute ride, we dined on lunch – rice, tofu and veggies served in a banana leaf. It was quite delicious! Once we disembarked, we walked for three kilometres with our day packs on a very muddy trail to the lake. Our duffle bags were transported by rickshaw over the same trail by some strong young men. From the lake, we boarded dugout canoes and carefully paddled through some narrow overgrown canals to the open lake. After 30 minutes across the lake, we reached Sandoval Lake Lodge. The lodge is on the banks of the lake and during our time there,

we experienced the most incredible sunsets, and starry night skies! With the jungle animal noises in the background, it was truly magical! The lodge itself is mostly open air, with only screens as window covering, just to keep the critters out. There are hammocks everywhere, a large dining area and bar, equipped with cards, games and a few books. Food was fresh, good and plentiful. We had the most delicious spicy salsa that we put in everything from soup to popcorn! Wine and beer were available from the bar – Peruvian wine, not so good, but Cusquena beer, delicious! And when there is electricity (intermittently throughout the day at scheduled hours), the bartender could even make a mean Pisco Sour! During our time in the jungle, we ventured out on many guided treks and ‘catamaran’ boat rides to view the flora and the fauna. Some of our spotting included: black caiman, howler monkeys, giant river otters, herons, macaws, squirrel and capuchin monkeys, gladiator frog, hunter spider, coral snake, leaf cutter ants, rhino beetles (big flying ones), pink-footed tarantula. We even had a long lizard fall from the rafters of one of the bedrooms right onto the bed of one of our guides. We heard him yell, we all went to see, I grabbed the tail to throw him outside (the lizard), he screeched (the lizard), then so did everyone else – quite the little episode. Of course, for sleeping at night, we wrapped our beds with our mosquito nets to keep out all the unwelcome visitors!

We also learned a lot about traditional plant medicine. It’s amazing how many natural remedies we use today, most of them originating in the Amazon jungle. But you have to know what you are doing and what to eat or touch, as many of the plants are poisonous. That’s the value of the local and very knowledgable guides! To hear more tales from the jungle, contact Carla Nelson, Branch Manager (Jungle Jane), Maritime Travel, 250489-4788.

MP wants investigation into Calgary train bridge collapse Bob Weber Canadian Press

An Opposition MP is calling for a separate Transport Canada investigation into the near-collapse of a flood-damaged rail bridge in Calgary to see if tough new rail safety regulations were broken. “Someone needs to be held responsible,’’ said New Democrat transport critic Olivia Chow. “The federal government shouldn’t wash their hands of it and the (Transportation Safety Board) is not the right venue. It really is Transport Canada.’’ Four petrochemical-laden rail cars derailed on a bridge over the Bow River last week when a Canadian Pacific Railway freight train

was passing over the span. A preliminary investigation has determined one of the four piers that support the bridge sagged when the river swelled during heavy flooding. CP said it inspected the bridge 18 times after the flooding began, but it was unsafe to send divers down to check below the water’s surface. “We would normally have probably put divers in to inspect, but the current was too fast,’’ CP CEO Hunter Harrison said last week. “It’s so murky, you couldn’t do an appropriate inspection.’’ Harrison said it would have been “jeopardizing commerce’’ to hold back trains until divers could get in. Calgary Mayor Na-

heed Nenshi and Conservative MP Deepak Obhrai, who represents the riding where the bridge failed, expressed anger with CP. Chow said the federal government needs to investigate the failure under provisions of the 2011 Railway Safety Act, which came into force last May. Companies that break the rules can be fined up to $1 million and executives can be fined $50,000 or face jail time of up to six months. Chow said the act requires the government to ensure railways are doing a proper job of monitoring safety procedures. “Under the (safety management system), they’re supposed to investigate if the company is following the rules or not and of course there

willing to take its responsibility seriously.’’ “Any time the safety management system is broken, there need to be consequences. There needs to be punishment. If not, then it’s not worth the paper it’s written on.’’ Transport Canada spokeswoman Karine Martel said the government will wait for the findings of a Transportation Safety Board investigation into the accident. “Once they have completed their investigation and released

their report, Transport Canada will not hesitate to take appropriate action,’’ she said. A Transportation Safety Board spokeswoman said the board won’t conduct its investigation specifically in light of the new legislation. “We do not intend to review changes made in the 2011 Railway Safety Act,’’ said Julie Leroux. “That being said, if we find actions taken or not taken that contributed to the Bonnybrook bridge pier foundation failure, we will identify

(them) as inadequate or a safety deficiency.’’ Board investigations often take longer than a year. Transport Canada has issued an emergency directive for all CP trains to restrict their speed to 17 kilometres an hour over bridges that might have been weakened by flooding. The directive holds until the structures have been fully inspected. Last week’s accident was safely resolved without injury to rail crews or harm to the river.

Two toddlers die after being left in vehicles Diana Mehta Canadian Press

MILTON, Ont. — Many shed tears, others held one another, while some just looked shellshocked as they gathered Wednesday to mourn an Ontario toddler who died last week after being left alone in a sweltering car. The funeral for Maximus Huyskens took place just hours before a three-year-old girl who was left in a hot car in Edmonton died in hospital. The two losses — heart-wrenching in their similarity — reignited the discussion over the dangers of leaving children unattended in vehicles. The service for Max, held at a church west of Toronto, drew family, friends and even some strangers, united in their empathy for parents who had lost their youngest son a month before his second birthday. Police have said the boy died after “being exposed to high-level temperatures for an extended period of time’’ in a sedan outside a Milton, Ont., home. Investigators said the child was in the care of his maternal grandmother, who is in her 50s, while his father was at work and his mother was at an appointment. No charges have been laid and police say they’re still awaiting further toxicology test results. As horrifying as the deaths of Max and the Edmonton girl were, safety experts hoped the tales of loss would highlight the problems around leaving children alone in or near vehicles. “If there’s any good in it at least it does draw attention to the fact that this is a problem,’’ said Catherine Gaudreau, spokeswoman for the Canada Safety Council. “The bottom line would be to never leave a child alone in a vehicle, not even for a few minutes.’’ While there are no official statistics available, the organization estimates between four to six children across the country die after being left alone in vehicles every year. Hot cars are particularly dangerous for young children, said Gaudreau, explaining that on a summer day

the temperature inside a car can soar to 50 degrees Celsius in as little as 10 to 20 minutes. Heatstroke can occur when surrounding temperatures reach about 40 degrees. A child left in a sweltering car could go into shock, sustain vital organ failure and

die, sometimes even after being rushed to hospital, Gaudreau said. “For children that’s particularly problematic because their bodies simply do not have the capacity to cool themselves and their core body temperature rises three to five times faster

than that of adult,’’ she said. Experts warned, however, against jumping to conclusions in assigning blame. “The vast majority of these cases we see, it’s not a failure of love, it’s a failure of memory,’’ said John McKiggan, an inju-

ry lawyer in Halifax who founded Kids and Cars Canada. “It’s not because the parent, caregiver, or grandparent doesn’t care about the child. It’s because something happened that made them forget and people don’t understand how easy it

is for that to happen.’’ In cases where memory lapses have lead to deaths, however, one expert in trauma and grief advised against thinking that such tragedies only happen to other people. “We distance ourselves from that situa-

tion and say ‘they’re careless, they’re indifferent to the safety of their kids’...If you just quickly distance yourself from that reality... then you’re not going to learn the lesson,’’ said Dr. Stephen Fleming, a psychology professor at York University.

UN says first decade of century shows accelerated warming John Heilprin Associated Press

El Paraisio, a few kilometres north of Lima, is a 4,000-year-old Peruvian archaeological site.

Peru officials say developers destroyed pyramid ASSOCIATED PRESS

LIMA, Peru — Real estate developers using heavy machinery tore down a 20-foot (6-meter) tall pyramid at the oldest archaeological site near Peru’s country’s capital, cultural officials said Wednesday. Rafael Varon, deputy minister of cultural patrimony, told reporters the destruction occurred over the weekend at the ruins of El Paraiso, a few kilometres north of Lima. He said Wednesday his agency has lodged criminal complaints against the two companies for the weekend’s damage, identified as the Alisol and Prov-

elanz, and has moved to seize the equipment used. People who answered the telephone at both companies said no one was available to comment. Peru’s tourism ministry says El Paraiso was built some 4,000 years ago and was a religious and administrative centre, long before the rise of the Inca culture encountered by the Spanish conquerors. Marco Guilen, director of an excavation project at El Paraiso, said the people who tore down the pyramid “have committed irreparable damage to a page of Peruvian history.’’ “We are not going to be able

to know in what ways it was constructed, what materials were used in it and how the society in that part of the pyramid behaved.’’ Varon said people apparently working for the two companies tore down one pyramid and tried to destroy three others, but were stopped by witnesses. Mayor Freddy Ternero from the town where the ruins are located, San Martin de Porres, said the pyramids were located in agricultural fields and were not guarded, though he said the Minister of the Interior sent police to protect it after the incident.

GENEVA — Global warming accelerated since the 1970s and broke more countries’ temperature records than ever before in the first decade of the new millennium, U.N. climate experts said Wednesday. A new analysis from the World Meteorological Organization says average land and ocean surface temperatures from 2001 to 2010 rose above the previous decade, and were almost a half-degree Celsius above the 1961-1990 global average. The decade ending in 2010 was an unprecedented era of climate extremes, the agency said, evidenced by heat waves in Europe and Russia, droughts in the Amazon Basin, Australia and East Africa, and huge storms like Tropical Cyclone Nargis and Hurricane Katrina. Data from 139 nations show that droughts like those in Australia, East Africa and the Amazon Basin affected the most people worldwide. But it was the hugely destructive and deadly floods such as those in Pakistan, Australia, Africa, India and Eastern Europe that were the most frequent extreme weather events. Experts say a decade is about the minimum length of time to study when it comes to spotting climate change. From 1971 to 2010, global temperatures rose by an average rate of 0.17 degrees Celsius per decade. But going back to 1880, the average increase was .062 per cent degrees Celsius per decade. The pace also picked up in recent decades.

In this Dec. 30, 2010 file photo a wallaby stands on a hay bail trapped by rising flood waters in Queensland, Australia. U.N. climate experts say global warming accelerated since the 1970s. Average temperatures were 0.21 degrees Celsius warmer this past decade than from 1991 to 2000, which were in turn 0.14 degrees Celsius warmer than from 1981 to 1990. Natural cycles between atmosphere and oceans make some years cooler than others, but during the past decade there was no major event associated with El Nino, the phenomenon characterized by unusually warm temperatures in the equatorial Pacific Ocean. Much of the decade was affected by the cooling La Nina, which comes from unusually cool temperatures there, or neutral conditions. Given those circumstances, WMO Secretary-General Michel Jarraud says the data doesn’t support the notion among some in the scientific community of a slowdown, or lull, in the pace of planetary warming in recent years.

“The last decade was the warmest, by a significant margin,’’ he said. “If anything we should not talk about the plateau, we should talk about the acceleration.’’ Jarraud says the data show warming accelerated between 1971 and 2010, with the past two decades increasing at rates never seen before amid rising concentrations of industrial gases that trap heat in the atmosphere like a greenhouse. By the end of 2010, the report shows, atmospheric concentrations of some of the chief warming gases from fossil fuel burning and other human actions were far higher than at the start of the industrial era in 1750. Carbon dioxide concentrations measured in the air around the world rose 39 per cent since then; methane rose 158 per cent; and nitrous oxide was up 20 per cent.

The Cranbrook and District Arts Council was delighted to host Linda Bullock as she introduced students to the versatile medium of acrylic and acrylic paint manipulation. The CDAC workshop space was abuzz with students picking up new and useful techniques on Saturday, June 22. For $35 students were treated to a four-hour workshop, where instructor Linda Bullock allowed the students to experience acrylic manipulation using her assortment of gels, mediums and pastes. Usually these additions would set you back a small fortune, but Linda supplies them as part of the course, for no additional fee. This is superb considering that often without knowing if a medium really speaks to you, first timers to new mediums can be put off from experimenting by high price tags, not to mention the uncertainty as to what each addition will do to your acrylics. Will glass beads appeal to you? Does the addition of fiber paste com-

Students are encouraged to play with each addition to see what works for them and what they like best. Linda described it best when she toted the workshop as less of a workshop and more of a “play day.” The result of four hours in acrylic alchemy?

The legendary decade of the 1980s is coming to life again, in classic rock style. On July 9, legendary rock band Nazareth is coming to Cranbrook and taking an entire generation on the ride of a lifetime. Nazareth are a Scottish hard rock band, founded in 1968, that had several hits in the United Kingdom in the early 1970s, and established an international audience with a cover of Joni Mitchell’s song This Flight Tonight and their 1975 album with title track  Hair of the Dog. Perhaps their bestknown hit single was a cover of the ballad “Love Hurts”, in 1975. Nazareth continues to tour throughout the world and in 2011 they released their latest album Big Dogz to rave reviews. 2008 marked

the band’s 40th anniversary since the original four members got back together in Scotland, and the 40th anniversary tour was one of the biggest in the band’s history. 2013 is once again shaping up for another Naz rock and roll road trip and HM Productions is bringing these rock icons to Cranbrook, B.C., on July 9 to headline for a one-of-a-kind ‘80s theme party at the Cranbrook Curling Club. “Through a sea of big hair and bright colours, one band emerges and stands above the rest.” Nazareth — The Rise of the ‘80s, at the Cranbrook Curling Club, July 9, 2013. Tickets are $35 + tax and are available at Bridge Interiors - 125 Slater Road, Cranbrook, or online at www.ticketweb.ca.

35 Ross Street HOWARD STREET ARTIST CO-OP

155 Howard Street STEEN JORGENSEN

Hometown: Kobenhagen, Denmark Art displayed at Downtown Deli Art Medium: Acrylic on canvas. Favourite colour/colour scheme and how it is used: Any colour or combination of colours that work for what I am trying to accomplish on a particular painting.

ANGELIQUE GILLESPIE Hometown: Calgary, Alberta/Radium Hot Springs Art displayed at the Burrito Grill Art Medium: Acrylic paintings Favourite colour/colour scheme and how it is used: As an Australian I am greatly influenced by the bright, warm colours of tropical flowers; the rich burnt oranges of the heart of the desert or the naturalness of the Australian Aboriginal. My favorite colour has always been burnt orange, right down to the dishes and clothes I had as a child. I paint from an intuitive well without language, planning or composing. It is an internal response to the childhood colourful flowers, the large blue-green ocean, the lush tropics or the wilderness of the bush or desert. My pieces are filled with reds, browns, bright greens or other warm tones because I am painting intuitively and responding to who I truly am. To answer how I use colour in my work, is to ask me to step back and describe the process instead of being the process. That’s hard to do.

JIM ROBERTSON Hometown: Cranbrook Art displayed at The Snow Drift Café Art Medium: Acrylic Favourite colour/colour scheme and how it is used: My favourite colour is not just one, but more like a group of. In music you would play in a key. I paint in keys. Different keys for different moods. Limiting my palette to a key colour plus four others I find this allows me to paint bright but I hope not ghastly. Loud but not to load. Rock on.

IRMA-JEAN BROWN Hometown: Kimberley   Art displayed at Kimberley Public Library    Art Medium: Watercolour Favourite colour/colour scheme and how it is used: Indigo is a favourite colour of mine.  I use it a lot in my landscapes. NO PHOTO AVAILABLE

SUE PIGHIN

Hometown: Kimberley Art displayed at Sew Creative Art Medium: Watercolour on paper and yupo Favourite colour/colour scheme and how it is used: My colour choices are warm and cool triads, to create harmonious vibrant colours. NO PHOTO AVAILABLE

JOHN OUGH Hometown: Kimberley Art displayed at Buddha Belly Deli Art Medium: Acrylic Favourite colour/colour scheme and how it is used: Colour scheme is dependent on the subject matter so I don’t really have a favourite colour scheme.

JEANIE MILLER Hometown: Wycliffe   Art displayed at Sew Creative Art Medium: Mostly Watercolour, some Acrylics. Favourite colour/colour scheme and how it is used: My favourite colour palette is  Permanent Rose, Thalo Blue and New Gamboge. I like this palette because I can make every colour I need for a painting and not be concerned about whether the colours will fight with one another. This palette works really well for my preferred subject, flowers.

ROD WILSON Hometown: Wycliffe Art displayed at BJ’s Restaurant and Creek Side Pub Art Medium: Photography Favourite colour/colour scheme and how it is used: It is more about composition, and how the parts of the image fit together. The stimulus for the creative process continually evolves. Currently it is about the performing arts, particularly that fleeting significant moment in a performance that crystallizes what is happening in the performing arena.

MARRIANE RENNICK Hometown: Kimberley Art displayed at the Kimberley Golf Club Art Medium: Primarily with watercolour but some acrylics Favourite colour/colour scheme and how it is used: I love all bright colours and, with few exceptions, use them in all my work.  My goal is to keep the colours as vibrant and yet transparent as possible so the light is able to reflect off the white of the paper underneath.

NEIL PANTON Hometown: Hamilton/ Cranbrook Art displayed at Bootleg Gap Golf Course Art Medium: Photography Favourite colour/colour scheme and how it is used: My favourite colour scheme is black and white. How I manipulate what falls between these two colours determines each individual piece of art I create. A photograph is made not taken.

LORI JOE Hometown: Kimberley Art displayed at Alpen Café Art Medium: Acrylic on canvas Favourite colour/colour scheme and how it is used: My preferred choices of colours are vibrant, rich colours such as quinacridone red, phthalo blue. They make me smile and give one a sense of happiness in a whimsical way. I want people to smile when they see my art; it is so much better than frowning.

DON DAVIES Hometown: Kimberley, Originally from Australia Art displayed at Alpen Café Art Medium: Pencil sketching with some watercolour Favourite colour/colour scheme and how it is used: I think my favourite colour is actually that golden yellow colour. I try to capture it in leaves in my art – it’s something you would find in autumn.

KAITY BROWN Hometown: Kimberley, grew up in Mendoza, Argentina Art displayed at Kimberley Public Library Art Medium: Photography Favourite colour/colour scheme and how it is used: ­My favourite colour is white – whether it is that little star of light in someone’s eyes or puffy clouds, the colour white is beautiful.

LYNNE LUKER Hometown: Kimberley Art displayed at Bean Tree Cafe Art Medium: Acrylic on Canvas Favourite colour/colours scheme and how it is used: My favourite colours to work with together as a colour scheme are both browns, paynes grey, golds and oranges, as I feel they give off such a warm feel. I also love using blues and greens together, because the blues are exciting and bold and the greens soften the whole piece giving it a serene setting!

HELEN ROBERTSON Hometown:  Kimberley Art displayed at the Friends of the Kimberley Library Art Medium: Acrylic Favourite colour/colour scheme and how it is used: Colour is energy!  I use colour in my work to explore the organic and vibrant nature of growth.

A powerful tool when you want to reach your potential customers.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Listen to news with an open mind. You might feel as if you have pushed someone in your personal life too hard. You do not have the facts to make a solid decision about how to proceed. If you can’t make sense of this situation, just wait. Seek feedback. Tonight: Be with friends. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You might be a little too involved with money for your taste. Nevertheless, it is a crucial part of your life. Make calls and bring others together. Do not neglect a certain someone -- you might want to do something with this person that needs planning. Tonight: Your treat. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Surprises will come in from out of left field. You could wonder which way to proceed. You might be able to go from one happening to another. Don’t worry about upsetting someone. An older family member or friend might be vague. Be careful. Tonight: As

you like it. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Know that much could be going on behind the scenes. You might think you know all the details. Listen and observe, and note that there is a hush-hush matter going on. Do not take it personally; make sure that you find out as much as you can. Tonight: Enjoy the fireworks. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You thrive among groups and crowds. The unexpected easily can dissolve a situation into a chaotic misunderstanding. You might want to rethink a question with more openness. Your intuition emerges in a discussion with one person. Tonight: Where you want to be, but not alone. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) The only way to lessen pressure is to understand where it is coming from. You might have made a judgment subconsciously about what someone said. You could have decided that he or she was right, and the tension stems from taking on that judgment. Tonight: Check in with a friend. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

For Better or Worse

You might be making plans to get away, as you could be unsure of your choices and the direction in which you’re heading. You will feel more complete after a discussion. You can’t diminish the importance of a relationship. A call brings positive results. Tonight: With friends. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Work with an individual directly. You will find that most issues can be resolved in this manner. You could meet very different people from very different backgrounds. Together, you will add zest to what would be a mediocre happening. Tonight: Make time for a special friend. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Defer to a partner, who really does mean well. There are many reasons to do this, and there also might be a natural benefit that you won’t see or understand immediately. Unexpected behavior from a child or loved one could throw plans into chaos. Tonight: Lighten the mood. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Your determination to bring a project to its natural ending re-

mains your major focus. Woe to those who attempt to interfere -- even if it is a holiday! Understand that many people are in celebration mode. Your intuition will guide you. Tonight: Say “yes” to an invitation. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Your sense of mischief emerges. Handling even a serious matter might be difficult. For all practical purposes, consider taking tomorrow off. A child or loved one expresses his or her caring. You might be surprised and also quite touched. Tonight: Let down your hair. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Without intending to, you could cast a haze over the clearest of situations. Confusion often prevents you from dealing with major issues. An unexpected event or phone call could distract you from your original plans. Do what you need to do first. Tonight: Go party hopping!

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Readers: Happy July 4th! While you’re grilling hot dogs, scooping potato salad and spending the day with family and friends, please remember the reason we celebrate this day. Here’s one of our favorite pieces, originally written in 1955 as a public relations advertisement for the Norfolk and Western Railway company magazine (now the Norfolk Southern Corporation) and updated in 1976. Although some of the statistics have changed over the years, the sentiment remains the same: “I Am the Nation” by Otto Whittaker I was born on July 4, 1776, and the Declaration of Independence is my birth certificate. The bloodlines of the world run in my veins, because I offered freedom to the oppressed. I am many things and many people. I am the nation. I am 250 million living souls -- and the ghost of millions who have lived and died for me. I am Nathan Hale and Paul Revere. I stood at Lexington and fired the shot heard around the world. I am Washington, Jefferson and Patrick Henry. I am John Paul Jones, the Green Mountain Boys and Davy Crockett. I am Lee and Grant and Abe Lincoln. I remember the Alamo, the Maine and Pearl Harbor. When freedom called, I answered and stayed until it was over, over there. I left my heroic dead in Flanders Field, on the rock of Corregidor, on the bleak slopes of Korea and in the steaming jungle of Vietnam. I am the Brooklyn Bridge, the wheat lands of Kansas and the granite hills of Vermont. I am the coalfields of the Virginias and Pennsylvania, the fertile lands of the West, the Golden Gate and the Grand Canyon. I am Independence Hall, the Monitor and the Merrimac. I am big. I sprawl from the Atlantic to the Pacific -- my arms reach out to embrace Alaska and Hawaii. I am more than five million farms. I am forest, field, mountain and desert. I am quiet villages -- and cities that never sleep. You can look at me and see Ben Franklin walking down the streets of Philadelphia with his breadloaf under his arm. You can see Betsy Ross with her needle. You can see the lights of Christmas and hear the strains of “Auld Lang Syne” as the calendar turns. I am Babe Ruth and the World Series. I am 110,000 schools and colleges and 330,000 churches where my people worship God as they think best. I am a ballot dropped into a box, the roar of a crowd in a stadium and the voice of a choir in a cathedral. I am an editorial in a newspaper and a letter to a Congressman. I am Eli Whitney and Stephen Foster. I am Tom Edison, Albert Einstein and Billy Graham. I am Horace Greeley, Will Rogers and the Wright Brothers. I am George Washington Carver, Jonas Salk and Martin Luther King Jr. I am Longfellow, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Walt Whitman and Thomas Paine. Yes, I am the nation and these are the things that I am. I was conceived in freedom and, God willing, in freedom I will spend the rest of my days. May I possess always the integrity, the courage and the strength to keep myself unshackled, to remain a citadel of freedom and a beacon of hope to the world. Dear Annie: Anybody who makes it a habit to call every day can become a nuisance. A friend phones me every night just as I’m settling down to watch TV. I’ve become an unwilling, unpaid substitute psychiatrist for an hour of free listening. I’ve started saying that I’m watching a great movie and can’t be torn away, or that I’m expecting a call from someone else. I hope she is listening to the message I’m trying to get across to her and to others who read your column. -- N.C.

NEWS Moment of silence as US investigates wildfire that killed 19 firefighters Associated Press

PRESCOTT, Ariz. — Hundreds of firefighters making progress Wednesday on the wildfire outside the mountain town of Yarnell were coming off the line to share a moment of silence and watch a procession of the towed vehicles of the 19 elite Hotshot crew members killed over the weekend. Firefighters in Arizona and across the U.S. are pausing throughout the day to remember the Granite Mountain Hotshots and recognize the dangers firefighters face everyday, said Jim Whittington, spokesman for Southwest Incident Command Team. “One of the things that defines the entire wildland firefighting community is we don’t forget,’’ he said, adding that crews pay tribute every year to those who have died in some of the nation’s worst firefighting disasters.

Investigators from across the U.S. will be working this week to try to find out what went wrong. The investigation will include examining radio logs, the fire site and weather reports. They’ll also surely talk to the sole survivor of the blaze, who warned his fellow firefighters and friends that the wildfire was switching directions and heading straight for them. In the nation’s biggest loss of firefighters since 9-11, violent wind gusts on Sunday turned what was believed to be a manageable lightning-ignited forest fire in the town of Yarnell into a death trap that left no escape for the team of Hotshots, most of them in the prime of their lives. Only one member of the crew, identified Tuesday as 21-year-old Brendan McDonough, survived. He was on a hilltop serving as a lookout. Mc-

Donough made it to safety, while the rest were overtaken by the blaze. McDonough grieved with families of the fallen firefighters Tuesday evening at a public memorial service in Prescott. More than 3,000 people gathered at a high school football stadium to remember the 19 men during a service punctuated by repeated moments of silence amid emotional remarks from pastors and officials. “On behalf of the Prescott Fire Department, I want to thank all of you,’’ said Ralph Lucas, a battalion chief for the Prescott Fire Department. “This has brought us to our knees but at some point there will be another house fire or wildfire.’’ After one moment of silence, 19 purple balloons — one for each of the fallen firefighters — were released into the air.

The nine-member team of investigators, comprised of forest managers and safety experts who arrived in Arizona on Tuesday, is expected to release an update later this week. The ultimate goal: Prevent a similar thing from happening again. “We have a responsibility to those lost and their loved ones, as well as to current and future wildland firefighters, to understand what happened as completely as possible,’’ Arizona State Forester Scott Hunt said in a statement. Safety standards for wildland firefighters were toughened nearly 20 years ago when 14 firefighters died on Colorado’s Storm King Mountain, and investigators found a number of errors in the way the blaze was fought. In what fire authorities said was an eerily similar situation to the Arizona blaze, a rapid

Death of Cirque de Soleil performer ruled accidental Canadian Press

LAS VEGAS — The death of a Cirque de Soleil performer last Saturday in Las Vegas has been ruled accidental by the Clark County coroner’s office in Nevada. In a statement posted on its website,the office says the death of Sarah Guillot-Guyard was accidental and related to multiple blunt force trauma. The 31-year-old woman died after she fell more than 25 metres while performing in front of an audience at Las Vegas’s MGM Grand hotel. The coroner’s office says the Nevada Occupational Safety and

In this Nov. 28, 2008, photo, Sarah Guyard-Guillot, left, and Sami Tiaumassi perform during Cirque du Soleil’s “Ka” at MGM Grand Resort in Las Vegas. Health Administration is continuing an investigation into the accident and it could take up to six months to complete. Witnesses told the Las Vegas Sun that the accident occurred during a fight scene near the end of the “Ka,’’

which combines acrobatics with martial arts and puppetry. Visitor Dan Mosqueda of Colorado Springs, Colo., said Guilot-Guyard was being hoisted up the side of the stage when it appeared that she detached from her

safety wire and plummeted to an open pit below the stage. The show momentarily continued, then stopped. Minutes after the accident, a recorded announcement informed audience members that refunds or vouchers to future shows would be offered, and the crowd was dismissed. The founder of Cirque du Soleil said in a statement that his tight-knit performance company is “completely devastated’’ by the death of the 31-year-old performer. “I am heartbroken,’’ Guy Laliberte said. “We are reminded with great humility and respect

how extraordinary our artists are each and every night. Our focus now is to support each other as a family.’’ While Cirque performers soar over audiences, scale vertical walls and dangle aloft in aerial ballets — the incident was the first stage casualty in the company’s 29-year history, according to Cirque spokeswoman Renee-Claude Menard. Guillot-Guyard, a mother of two, had been with the original cast of “Ka’’ since 2006. Born in Paris, she is also listed as the head coach at Cirquefit, a program that offers acrobatic fitness classes for children.

Joshua Michael Anderson November 5, 1993 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; June 30, 2013 It is with great sorrow that the family of Josh Anderson announces his passing at the age of 19. Josh was never known to take up much space in a conversation, but what he did say he meant and it usually made you laugh. Josh loved the outdoors and spent all his free time fishing, hunting, dirtbiking, snowmobiling, and hiking. Hockey was a love of his until he discovered hunting and snowmobiling and those quickly took over his fall and winters. He was involved in the Wasa and District 4-H club from the age 6 until he was 16. 4-H instilled many values in Josh that he carried with him throughout his life.

Want to reach new customers? We read the newspaper every day, Monday to Friday.

Top Ten Reasons to Advertise in a Newspaper 1. Advertise to Reach New Customers. Your market changes constantly. Advertising is tremendously helpful in directing customers to the product and services they need, and helps put you ahead of your competition.

2. Your Competition Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Quitting. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to advertise to get your share of business or lose it to the stores that do. If you cut back on your advertising, you may forfeit new prospective customers to your competition.

3. Advantage Over Competitors Who Cut Back. A five year survey of more than 3,000 companies found that advertisers who maintained or expanded advertising during a troubled economy saw sales increase an average of 100%.

4. Continuous Advertising Strengthens Your Image. To advertise using our â&#x20AC;&#x153;SERVICES GUIDEâ&#x20AC;? in the Cranbrook Daily Townsman, Kimberley Daily Bulletin and The Valley, call us at 250-426-5201, ext. 202.

When people who postpone buying come back to the marketplace, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a better chance of getting their business if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve continued to maintain a solid, reliable image.

5. Direct Advertising is Cost Efficient. Direct has the advantages â&#x20AC;&#x201C; demographic and geographic numbers to afford advertisers the best value and exposure for their advertising dollar.

6. Advertise to Generate Traffic. Continuous traffic is the first step toward sales increases and expanding your base of buyers. The more people who contact you, the more possibilities you have to make sales.

7. Advertise to Make More Sales. Advertising works! Businesses that succeed are usually strong, steady advertisers. Look around. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find the most aggressive and consistent advertisers are almost invariably the most successful.

8. Advertise Because There is Always Business to Generate. Salespeople are on the payroll. As long as youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in business, you have overhead and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to advertise to generate a steady cash flow.

9. Advertise to Keep a Healthy Positive Image. In a troubled economy, rumors and bad news travel fast. Advertising corrects gossip, shoots down false reports and projects positively.

10. Advertise to Maintain Employee Morale. When advertising and promotion are cut, salespeople become less motivated. They may believe the store is cutting back, even going out of business.

Call today and start advertising.
