Arrest made after high speed chase Off-duty officer shoots at vehicle’s tires Townsman Staff

Friday proved to be an exciting and potentially deadly day for one Cranbrook police officer. On Friday, July 5 at 1:30 p.m. Cranbrook RCMP began combing the city and surrounding area on a report of a truck stolen from Van Horne Street in Cranbrook. The police officer — who wasn’t identified in a subsequent press release — located the suspected stolen truck at on Hwy 93/95 just north of the Wasa turnoff. When the officer tried to confront the suspect male driver and female passenger, the driver of the truck drove towards him. The officer managed to avoid the truck and fire off his sidearm, hitting at

least one of the vehicle’s driver-side tires (though both were confirmed flat at the end of the chase. The officer then got in his vehicle and pursued the suspect truck — noting once that the vehicle was hitting speeds of 135 km and difficult to keep up with. Officers f ro m Cranbrook and Invermere were scrambled in the Wasa direction. The suspect vehicle turned off on a road near the Skooku m c h u c k mill, stopped and the officer was able to take both into custody, before awaiting reinforcements. In a press release police said the suspect driver was not a local man but was known to police elsewhere and the female passenger was detained as a person of interest. No one was injured as a result of this incident and the police investigation is continuing.

Bull River accident

Missing man’s body retrieved Jaffray’s Zeke Fantuz confirmed deceased after his vehicle went into the Bull River on June 24 Townsman Staff

On Saturday, July 6, the body of missing Jaffray man Ezekiel “Zeke” Fantuz was pulled out of the Bull River east of Cran-

brook by Search and Rescue personnel, according to Cranbrook RCMP. The young man was last seen at about 11:15 p.m. on Monday, June 24 after he left a friend’s house to return home. When he failed to arrive, a search began and revealed a spot where RCMP believed Zeke’s 1994 Nissan Pathfinder had gone off the Bull River Forest Service Road into the Bull River, above the bridge past the Aberfeldie Dam.

In the evening on Friday, July 5, according to Cranbrook RCMP, a family member located Zeke’s vehicle in the river, a short distance downstream of where it went in. RCMP were notified, and Search and Rescue teams attended the scene Friday night. Search and Rescue managed to attach a line to the vehicle, preventing it from moving further downstream. See page 5

Once upon a time, there was a dog named Laddie, whose life was very much like a fairytale. By that I don’t mean to imply that it was full of trolls, evil stepmothers, poison apples or architecturally challenged pigs. No, Laddie’s story is one of loss, rejection, redemption, and fairy godmothers. Oh, and it has a Prince Charming, which of course would be me.

daily townsman / daily bulletin

An unrestrained dogumentary. Old Dog - New Tricks: Laddie meets his new human.

Let me start at the beginning, or at least the beginning as far as my humans have related it to me. As with all good fairytales, it starts with a devastating event. In this case, the sudden death of Rieley the Wonder Dog; the long-time companion to Taylor and to my future humans. His loss left a lonely void in all their lives so when the humans learned of an older golden retriever named Laddie, who had been left at the SPCA; they decided to give him a home.

Laddie this is Taylor - Taylor, Laddie.

I do not know what sad events had lead to an old pup, well past his 70th dog year, to suddenly be left without a family. What I can tell you is that to a dog, the loss of your humans is a tragedy of epic proportion. It is why we were designed to live shorter lives than our people. We would prefer to shuffle off this mortal coil ahead of you, so as not to have to endure that loss. Regardless, it looked like Laddie’s pain was over when he was brought to my peoples home and introduced to Taylor. Oh, the transition was not with out its conflicts, Laddie being older and set in his ways and Taylor still aching for a Rieley she could never get back created occasional friction. All parties involved however were determined to make the relationship work.

Then one day there was a phone call. It was from a wellintentioned female human named Gail. She and her family love dogs so much that they volunteer as a foster family for the SPCA. She had heard of Rieley the Wonder Dog’s passing and was wondering if Taylor needed a new companion. She just happened to be fostering a very active one-year-old golden retriever that needed a home where he had space to run. His name was Boulder. Yes, you see gentle reader; I too was between homes so to speak. My previous owners were good kind people with a little yard, little spare time, and several little dogs. From the tip of my tail that can clean off a coffee table with a single wag to my head that is the size of a cinder block, there is nothing “little” about me. I was not a good fit for this family.

Taylor’s humans were quite certain three dogs would just be too much, but after some coaxing from Gail, they agreed to have me over for a visit. It turned into a nightmare. There was a lot of snarling, snapping, and marking of territory in the house. Again I found that my big personality was just too overwhelming in that dog-crowded house. When Gail arrived to pick me up she was tearfully told it just wouldn’t work and since Laddie was old and his chances of adoption were low, he would have to stay and I would have to go. Then an amazing thing happened, right before my nose, Gail turned into a fairy godmother, granting two wishes with these magic words, “If the reason you are keeping Laddie is because you don’t think he will find a good home anywhere else, I will take him and then you can keep Boulder.”

It was a switch made in heaven. Both Laddie’s and my wish for a forever home was granted. I romped on the farm and in the mountains, Laddie went on long slow walks and slept on a leather couch, both of us considering ourselves a couple of lucky dogs.

Eventually however, all fairytales come to an end and so it was that Gail the Fairy Godmother informed us, that after several great years, the last page of Laddie’s story had been turned. He died peacefully while lying in his favourite spot on his leather sofa, feeling loved and knowing that the last sentence in his book had read, “And he lived happily ever after.”

Aquatic Centre cardboard boat races

Cardboard boats were launched at the Kimberley Aquatic Centre last week. Kimberley kids hit the water to race, or in some cases, sink, in the spirit of friendly competition. It took a lot of ingenuity, and duct tape, to fashion the boats. The Mark Creek Lions were on hand with hotdogs for all. Photos by Kaity Brown and Aquatic Centre staff

Food Bank garage sale coming in August C AROLYN GR ANT editor@dailybulletin.ca

While the Food Bank’s annual July 1 Duck Race was a huge success netting $17,000, the need for fundraising does not stop. “The demand never ends,” said Stan Salikin from the Food Bank. “It is continuous day in, day out.” What that means is that Food Bank volunteers are switching their attention to the next big fundraiser, the Annual Food Bank Garage Sale. “It’s scheduled for Saturday, August 24,” Salikin said. “Lots of people have been phoning in and asking. Yes, it’s

definitely on. We are excited about it. It’s one of our biggest fundraisers.” Last year gross sales at the garage sale were $7500, and it is hoped it will do just as well this year. “People in the community have always been very supportive. We’re asking you to save your good items for the

sale.” Right now, the food bank is just asking that you hold onto the items you wish to donate. On August 1, they will gain access to the curling rink and begin to accept donations. Salikin says someone will be there every day from August 1 until the sale date on the 24th, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the back side door. At that time, you can bring your donated items down. All donations in good shape are gratefully accepted, however it is asked that you do not bring electronics such as old computers or televisions. The sale itself goes on August 24 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Missing man’s body retrieved from Bull River From Page 1 At first light on Saturday, July 6, Cranbrook RCMP with Search and Rescue units from Cranbrook, Kimberley, Fernie and Sparwood, including a swift water and rope rescue team, began the work of retrieving the vehicle. “Search and Rescue teams were successful in having the vehicle towed closer to shore, at which time the body of 20-year-

old Zeke Fantuz was recovered from the vehicle,” said Cpl. Prefontaine. “The Cranbrook RCMP would like to thank everyone who assisted in the search and recovery efforts.” A memorial service for Zeke was held the same day, Saturday, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Jaffray. Meanwhile, two young men

whose vehicle went into Findlay Creek on June 8 are still missing. Stephen Thomson, 21, of Canal Flats and Nicholas Hoefnagels, 19, of Carstairs, Alberta, were last scene leaving a campsite at Whitetail Lake on June 8. Their truck was pulled out of the fast-flowing Findlay Creek on June 25, but the men were not inside it. Photo submitted

Lessons from a dog whisperer From Page 4 In another session, Cesar took dogs afraid of swimming into the pool, where they quickly relaxed under Cesar’s care. People came to the program for different reasons, Cheryl says. “The reasons we went there for were usually different from what we ended up with,” she adds. One woman works for a parole office in the U.S., where the policy is to shoot aggressive dogs on a property when they need to get through to make an arrest. The woman took Cesar’s program in hopes she could change that policy. Another girl runs a volunteer-led non-profit animal shelter with 60 dogs. Cesar showed her how to teach dogs to use a treadmill, then offered to buy one for the shelter. Cheryl has come away with so much knowledge of dog psychology and rehabilitation that she is overflowing with advice. “People think their dogs just need love, but he teaches you about pack leadership and you realize that dogs are a lot simpler than we are and they don’t understand human psychology,” she explains.

“Your energy has everything to do with how they react. “Humans are emotional, intellectual and spiritual; dogs are only instinctual.” Now Cheryl is hoping to share what she has learnt with people in Cranbrook. “I wish I had another 40 years to live to practise what I learned,” she says. She is starting to do consultations with dogs that are experiencing behavioural problems. Eventually Cheryl wants to help as many dogs as possible by coming up with a plan for their humans to better understand what their dog needs. She would like to work with shelters to evaluate dogs and match them with the right human. Cheryl is also considering bringing Yale University’s “Muttigrees” program to Cranbrook schools, which is based on children’s affinity with animals. But for now, Cheryl is still reliving her experience with Cesar Milan. “He made it so fun – I was on a high for weeks after,” she says. “It was a dream I never thought would come true in my lifetime.”

Every year students of McKim have the opportunity to win a prize at the year end assembly. The criteria is no lates during the school year. This year’s the prize was a Kona Mountain Bike. Trevor at Kootenay Mountain Works believes in healthy, active lifestyle and provides a top notch quality bike each year to Mckim well below the cost of the bike. If it wasn’t for Trevor covering a huge percentage of the bike, McKim would not be able to provide this prize. Paul Sotropa a grade 4 student is the winner of the Kona Bike provided by Trevor Knight down at Kootenay Mountain Works.

The murder of crows O

ver recent days a murder of crows has taken up residence in my neighbourhood. One thing I’ve learned about Corvus brachyrhynchosis in this time is that they’re not shrinking violet types, especially when they’re gadding about ensemble. The neighbourhood murder is up with the chickens. Now, usually my yard is host to all manner of birds — robins, chickadees, sparrows and swallows, warblers, flickers come through, even hummingbirds … It’s quite pleasant to drift slowly awake in the predawn light as the benign chirp and chatter of these smaller birds begins. But when the crows stop in, it’s a different story. The other morning, the crows flew in at dawn’s early light, perched in the Rocky Mountain juniper just outside my bedroom window, and began the most murderous brouhawhaw, shouting at each other like some parliamentary debate gone out of control. The caw-caw-cawing jolted me awake like a bucket of water dumped on me. “My gawd,” I groaned, “Shut up! Shut up!” But they did not shut up. I got up and went outside to remonstrate with the crows, but I could not shoo them away. I threw a frisbee into the tree (the only pro-

jectile I could find close to hand), but that didn’t faze the crows at all. Defeated, I went back to bed, and lay there with a pillow over my head until they flew away. The next morning I heard them again, but they were a couple of blocks away, and the sound was muted. I woke up and heard them faintly, caw-cawcawing away like mad by Barry some unlucky neighbour’s “Hee hee,” I chuckled Coulter house. to myself unkindly. “We all have to take our turn.” And so the murder of crows circulated around the neighbourhood, making an endless racket, especially at dawn and dusk. Crows are reputed to be among the world’s most intelligent animals. I don’t doubt it. For example, the region of their brains that perform some types of executive functions and other higher cognitive tasks — the nidopallium — has been found to have the same relative size as the neocortex in humans. A crow could actually be smarter than I am. I’m not going to rule it out. But regardless of their cleverness, crows are subject to the same possible misadventures as the rest of us. On Sunday evening I was engrossed in “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” when I heard a loud ka-boom! from out-

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

side. The power immediately went out, and a clangor of caw-caw-cawing began. “I bet I know what that was,” I said to myself as I went outside. And I was right. There at the foot of a power pole lay a crow, dead as a doornail. At the top of the power pole was the transformer, which looked askew. I called BC Hydro and went over and looked at the crow. It looked smaller up close, especially its head. It was hard to imagine this animal could theoretically match my own relative executive functions and some other higher cognitive tasks. My brain is obviously bigger, therefore I must be smarter, no? Then again, maybe not. If I tried to rewire my kitchen I would probably meet with the same fate as the smoking crow at my feet. “Rest in Peace,” I said to it. All this time the murder of crows had gathered in the trees nearby, caw-cawcawing and shrieking over their lost fellow. Occasionally they would lift off and fly around in lazy concentric circles, cawing away. BC Hydro, I must say, was Johnny on the Spot. A unit pulled in and had the power back on within minutes. They even took the dead crow away. On Monday morning, the neighbourhood trees were silent, except for the chirp and chatter of small birds. After the death of their flockmate, the murder had left, to seek a new beginning.

Army goes back to the future with return to British-style ranks and designations C anadian Press

OTTAWA — The Canadian Army is marching into its past. Defence Minister Peter MacKay says the army will replace the Maple Leaf rank designation on the shoulder boards of officers with the traditional “pips and

Crowns’’ last used in 1968, before the various branches were unified as the Canadian Forces. The ranks of non-commissioned officers will also be returned to the original British Army and Commonwealth designations.

As a result, the rank of private will be virtually eliminated within the army and replaced with trooper, bombardier, fusilier, rifleman or guardsman, depending upon the unit. In recent years, the Conservative government has restored the

pre-unification names of different branches of the military, re-introducing the Royal designation to the air force and navy. MacKay also says the military will do away with the geographic “land forces’’ designations within the domes-

tic army command, instead organizing different regions of the country into their historic “divisions.’’ He says the changes don’t strip away any Canadian identity, but rather strengthen the bond with the past.

Get ready for Hydro rate hikes

T

here’s a new sheriff in town for BC Hydro, and it didn’t take long for the political range war to resume. The new sheriff, Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett, found himself on the barricades as soon as he got the hugely complex responsibility for energy and mines. His saddlebags bulge with reports on BC Hydro’s seemingly runaway costs, along with Premier Christy Clark’s “core review” to cut $50 million a year from government operations. NDP energy critic John Horgan highlighted the latest BC Hydro troubles in his assault on the B.C. Liberal budget. First there was a $140 million cost overrun on the Northwest Transmission Line, under construction north from Terrace to the tiny Tahltan village of Iskut and adjacent mine properties. Then BC Hydro revealed results of an audit of its earthquake preparedness. “Condition red” was the key message. Basically, the sprawling utility has disaster plans for each of its dams or other power facilities, but no overall way to get the provincial power grid back up after a major earthquake. Horgan recited his list of BC Hydro sins after a decade of meddling by the BC Liberals: huge deferred debt revealed by the Auditor General, enormous liabilities for

private power contracts, and more rate increases that Bennett has already admitted are on the way. And now they can’t even keep us safe from the big one. Bennett fired back. About $2 billion of that debt is for seismic upgrades for the 80-year-old Ruskin Dam in Maple Ridge, and the equally frail John Hart Dam on the Campbell River, BC Views built with wooden water pipes. Major BC Hydro Tom works slowed down after Fletcher completion of Revelstoke and Mica dams in the 1980s, and now the work is more expensive. The Northwest Transmission Line is a partnership with Imperial Metals, which wants to power its Red Chris copper-gold-silver mine. Bennett said the company is not only paying for the last section to Iskut and the mine site, but pitching in for the main line as well. Ottawa paid $130 million to get remote communities off decades of dependence on diesel generators. AltaGas, owner of one of those private power projects in the region, puts in $180 million to get connected to the grid. The line will open up more mining and hydro possibilities. The cost overrun traces back mainly to the shortage of high-skill labour such as

geotechnical engineering that the remote region already faces. And this is before natural gas pipelines and LNG plants gear up. Bennett takes over from the last sheriff, Rich Coleman, who put BC Hydro through the wringer in 2011. Coleman soon abandoned his idea of putting off the Ruskin and John Hart upgrades (again) to keep rates low through the election, and saw the B.C. Utilities Commission jack up the rate increase to seven per cent to help slow the ballooning debt. What’s ahead for rates? The utility is looking for 32 per cent in the next three years, says energy lawyer David Austin. He calculates that only 2.5 per cent is attributable to increased private power costs. Among other things, BC Hydro needs regional emergency centres capable of functioning after a Japan-sized quake, plus expansion. Bennett came clean on another reason for rate increases — the government’s increasing dependence on taking a “dividend” as BC Hydro’s lone “shareholder.” The newly updated budget tells us this annual “dividend” is past $500 million and rising fast: $545 million this year, $611 million next year and $684 million the year after.

Listen to your body, starting now

Tatjana Bates

s a community dietitian, I am often asked about the latest trends and diets. I think to get right to the heart of the subject, let’s put the Google search away, get back to the basics and listen to our bodies. If you could ask your body what it needs to feel good and enjoy life – I think this is what it would tell you. Eat regularly. Whether you are working, hiking or travelling, your body needs fuel (food) every three to four hours to support what you are doing. Without regular fuel the body’s metabolism slows down and becomes sluggish and this can result in weight gain. Too little food can cause weight gain and so can consuming only one or two bigger meals a day. Spreading your food intake throughout the day and eating balanced meals of three to four of the food groups will let your body perform its best. Don’t cut out the good carbohydrates. Do you ever feel your energy levels dropping in the afternoon or during an activity? It might be due to a lack of carbohydrates (often called carbs) to balance your meal.

Carbohydrates come from the bread and cereals food group. Many diets limit this group which is an important team player that supplies the body with fuel and vitamins. Check out Canada’s Food Guide to learn more about developing a balanced plan for you. Keep sugary drinks and treats in check. These choices have the sole purpose of pure pleasure but too much fun, too often can add up faster than you think. A small French vanilla cappuccino can pack 10 teaspoons of sugar and two teaspoons of fat; a 591 ml bottle of pop has 17 teaspoons of sugar. It’s okay to enjoy the odd sweet treat but be sure to check in with yourself and ask how often and what else do I enjoy that might be better for me. Cool smoothies with fresh berries, fruit, and yogurt with 100 per cent juice are a delicious and healthier choice. Get a move on. Your body loves to move whenever it gets a chance. Try planning ac-

tivities based on seasons to provide a variety of fun activities that can keep you moving throughout the year. Activity has added benefits that we may not often think about like taking the time to clear our minds, notice our surroundings, connect with friends and family and challenging ourselves by trying something new. Enjoy real fresh food. Nothing beats home cooked, real, locally grown food. This is the perfect time of year to enjoy fresh picked colourful produce and herbs from your garden or local food markets. If your body could talk to you right now I think it would say “don’t worry so much about the trends and the fads — feed me regularly with good, fresh, tasty food and be sure to keep me moving … and by the way thanks for listening.” For more information visit www.dietitians.ca and read Canada’s Food Guide: www.hc-sc.gc.ca/fn-an/food-guide-aliment/index-eng.php Tatjana Bates is a community nutritionist with Interior Health.

SPORTS BRIEFS Suspect in Hernandez case arraigned, ordered held on accessory to murder charge ATTLEBORO, Mass. - A man facing an accessory to murder charge in the case involving former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been ordered held without bail. Ernest Wallace, of Miramar, Fla., pleaded not guilty Monday in Attleboro, Mass., court. He mouthed “I love you” to some people sitting in the courtroom. He returns to court July 22. Odin Lloyd was found slain June 17 at an industrial park in North Attleborough not far from Hernandez’s home. Prosecutors say Wallace and another man, Carlos Ortiz, were with Hernandez when they drove with Lloyd to the industrial park. They have not said who shot him. Prosecutors say Hernandez orchestrated the killing because he was upset at Lloyd for talking to certain people at a nightclub a few days earlier. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty. Associated Press

EAST KOOTENAY TRACK AND FIELD CLUB

Track club represents at Interior meet TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

With some silver and gold in tow, athletes representing the East Kootenay Track and Field club returned home after putting themselves to the test at a meet in Kelowna over the weekend. Zoe Chore took a gold in shot put with a throw of 9.54 metres, while earning silver with the discus throw, sending it 25.48 metres down the field. Samara Schiefner earned spots in the final heats of the 100- and 200-metre races, placing fourth in both, while Sarah Andreas also made it into the last 100metre race, finishing seventh. The EKTFC fielded six athletes that competed well in a tough meet that attracted some high-level talent from Edmonton, Calgary, the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island, said club coach James O’Kane. “The kids, they all did really well,” said O’Kane. “It’s their first time against higher level competition outside of our Kootenay zone, so basically you’re going up there and competing against some of the best

in the province, and they had some really good numbers.” “…They were a little nervous to start, but once they got rid of the butterflies, they turned into great competitors.” Even O’Kane got in on the action, placing first in both the Masters long jump and javelin throw. The season has now ended for the EKTFC, and O’Kane is happy about how things went with the club’s inaugural year, and excited about the future. “We’ve had a really good season so I’m looking forward to next year already, and we want to try and get a few more people involved, see if we can bring in some more athletes now that we’re starting to get some results,” said O’Kane. “It was a great season, really proud of all the kids, they did really great.” Though O’Kane is the head coach, Jenn Doll also helps out with mentoring the athletes, and the club was able to get off the ground with the help of Jane Davies, Lorna Schiefner, Jackie Byford and Jan Grady.

Sports Kimberley golfer reflects on Come Celebrate winning junior championship With Us at MARK CREEK MARKET! Tre vor Cr awley Sports Editor

Only four feet stood between Kimberley golfer Jared duToit and a championship. Despite some pounding nerves, he brought his club back and sunk a short putt on the 16th hole at Revelstoke Golf Club to with the B.C. Junior Boys title last Friday. “This is four feet for the B.C. junior—a must make and the nerves were going everywhere. The putter just feels so heavy when you’re in that situation,” recalled duToit, speaking from Radium where he will be competing in the B.C. Amateur Championship this week. “I took it back and just focused on making a good stroke and rolled it in. I don’t think I realized what I’d done until the ball went in the hole and realized I was the winner and couldn’t be more excited. Couldn’t wipe that smile off my face.” Surrounded by 100 spectators, duToit had just capped off a remarkable comeback that day, erasing a twostroke deficit that put him in a three way tie for first place, which set up a playoff hole. Even though all the eyes were on him, he welcomed the added pressure of having the gallery watch his every move.

“Normally, I’m pretty good in front of spectators,” duToit said. “I like playing in front of spectators and when there is people there, it’s pretty fun for me. “There’s more pressure, but if you pull through, you just look like the guy, right? And I like being that guy.” DuToit led the field after the second round of the event last week, but struggled on the third day, falling to fourth place and two strokes away from the lead. However, he played lights out in the final round, shooting a course-tying seven under par for a score of 65. He saved a par on the 17th hole, sinking a 15-foot putt, and went into the final hole down by a stroke. “I ripped my drive and then hit my approach shot just like I envisioned it, hit it to five feet and made a little five-foot slider to make birdie that put me 11-under and eventually tie for the lead,” said duToit. He also had some help from his playoff competitors in Kevin Vigna and Jordan Lu on the 18th hole. Vigna had a birdie put that could’ve ended the whole event, however, the ball stopped just inches from the hole. Both Vigna and Lu struggled off their tee

Junior Boys Championship last Friday. shots on the playoff hole, and they posted bogeys, but duToit drilled his drive onto the centre of the fairway. He missed the free with his approach, but chipped within four feet to putt for par. The win qualifies duToit for a spot on Team B.C. for the Canadian Junior Boys Championship in Sudbury, Ont, at the end of July. DuToit is also going to shoot for a spot at the Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship through a qualifying

tournament in Victoria at the beginning of August. While duToit won the tournament as an individual, he was also a part of a group that won the zone team—a first-ever for the Kootenay region. DuToit, along with his brother, Russell, and fellow Kimberley golfer Evan Gresty and Scott Merriam of Cranbrook, represented Zone One-E and won the team portion of the tournament, beating out six other zones.

SURREY, B.C. - The B.C. Lions are battling injuries to key players as they prepare to face the Edmonton Eskimos. Linebacker Adam Bighill will miss Saturday’s game in Edmonton due to an ankle injury. Bighill suffered a sprained ankle in the third quarter of last Thursday’s win over Toronto after an Argonaut fell on the back of his leg. Bighill has stated publicly that he expects to be out at least two weeks, but coach Mike Benevides said Monday he is not looking beyond the next game. “Right now, I know he won’t be ready this week,” said Benevides. It was initially feared that Bighill, a CFL all-star last season, had suffered a broken tibia. But, after he was taken to hospital, it was determined that he had only sprained the limb.

“Bighill’s just going to have to go through the program,” said Benevides. “It’s going to take a little bit. The swelling’s down, the pain’s less. But it’s going to take some time.” Anton McKenzie is expected to take Bighill’s place in the starting lineup. “We’re so fortunate to have (McKenzie), a tremendous pro and a tremendous linebacker,” said Benevides. “To be able to just get him to plug in and play Biggie’s position is really fortunate for us. “Obviously, we’ll certainly miss Biggie. There’s no doubt about that.” The Lions could also miss slotback Shawn Gore in Edmonton. He suffered head injury against Toronto after a hard hit in the second quarter forced him out of the game. Benevides said Gore is going through the league’s concussion

protocol. If Gore can’t play, 11year veteran Paris Jackson is expected to start in his place. Another slotback, Nick Moore, also missed practice as he sat out with an ankle injury suffered against Toronto. Moore was able to complete the game and does not know how he suffered the injury, which flared up afterwards. The 27-year-old Westerville, Ohio native expects to recover in time to suit up against the Eskimos. “I’ll play,” he vowed. Meanwhile, Benevides said kicker Paul McCallum (groin), who has yet to play this season, will likely miss the game. Hugh O’Neill, who made three of four field-goal attempts against Toronto, will again handle all of the kicking duties after he was expected to replace the 21-year veteran just on kick-offs and, possibly, punts this season.

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

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Do not hold back. You could come up with an even better idea than what is being worked with. Share your thoughts, but be ready for a brainstorming session to evolve. At some point, you might feel frustrated, but you will need to move on. Tonight: Dinner out with a loved one. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You see many possibilities, especially involving your home. You like many of these ideas, but when you share some of them with a roommate or partner, his or her immediate reaction might be far from positive. Give this person some time to think. Tonight: Make a favorite treat. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You might want to grasp what is happening before you even respond. You could get a lot of calls, but one request seems quite significant. Ask questions to make sure that the person you are dealing with has all the facts. Think before you react. Tonight:

Hang out with friends. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Verify that all bills are paid and your finances are in order before making any more purchases. If you feel as if you are about to enter a risky situation, be smart and walk away. Playing it conservatively is not a bad thing. Tonight: Relax to a movie or hop on the Web. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You have the ability to beam in anything you want; the problem is figuring it out. A complication involving your personal life could put a damper on your day, if you allow it to. Move through the day with an eye to positive changes. Tonight: Jump over an obstacle. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You might want to write down some of your thoughts instead of sharing them right now. You could be confused as to which way to head. Whether you realize it or not, you might be causing yourself a problem where there need not be one. Tonight: Chat the night away. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

For Better or Worse

Meetings might be more important than you realize. Someone younger than you will step up and tell you his or her thoughts. On one level, you might not like what you hear. On another level, you’ll discover what you need in order to move forward. Tonight: Where the crowds are. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Your attitude could be preventing you from knowing what choices to make. You might even misread a boss, parent or key person in your life. Detach, and try to remove all of the judgments you have made here. Then look again, and you might be surprised. Tonight: Up late. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) As difficult as it might be, you might want to break precedent and do something very different. Understanding evolves if you are ready to detach and honor your inner voice. Build on a new friendship, perhaps with someone who is quite offbeat. Tonight: Think positively. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You might want to rethink a

decision involving a partner and money. You might not see eye to eye. Honor who you are, and initiate a conversation. You both could have missed the obvious solution. Find an unbiased friend to brainstorm with. Tonight: Meet someone halfway. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) After you listen to a loved one, partner or dear friend, you could be convinced that he or she is right. You have little to lose by going along with this person’s ideas. Visit with an older friend or loved one at a distance. Tonight: So many invitations for you to choose from! PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Stay mellow, and understand the limitations of your present path. You could be out of sorts and wondering what to do next. Stay levelheaded, have discussions and get feedback. Someone might rain on your parade. Ignore this person. Tonight: Do something for you.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: This is my second marriage. My husband has two children from his first marriage and a stepdaughter. His first wife had several affairs. I feel it may have been due to his lack of support for her. He was always working and never had time for his wife and kids. We married five years after his divorce. My husband and I are happy, and he is devoted to me. But he continues to work a great deal, and I am often lonely. I know it would help to have my own outside interests and hobbies and to go out with my friends, but I miss the closeness I had with my first husband. We did everything together. The problem now is his kids. We have not spoken to them in nearly three years. When his oldest granddaughter sent us a graduation invitation, I sent her a text thanking her for inviting us. She wrote back, “Who is this? I do not recognize the number.” That really hurt me. I gave nine years of my life to that little girl, trying to be a good step-grandmother. I wrote her back and said, “Once upon a time, you called me Grandmommie. I still love and miss you.” I have heard nothing more from her. My husband’s children have no respect for their father because he was always gone. I tried to overcome that for many years, but it went sour. What can we do to get these problems corrected? Should we send a graduation gift? -- Hurting in Oklahoma Dear Oklahoma: First, while your relationship with these children seems distant, let’s not mix apples and oranges. Unless your phone number is programmed into this grandchild’s phone, your name would not come up when you texted, and she would not have known who was contacting her. You can call the children and grandchildren directly and ask how to warm up the relationship. But we can’t promise anything will change unless your husband becomes more involved, and he does not seem inclined. But please send a graduation gift. It’s a start. Dear Annie: I am at my wits’ end. I have tried every angle imaginable to stop an employee from showing her butt crack. I even bought her a long T-shirt. She wore it once and says she can’t find it. Am I wrong to think that she should not be allowed to dress this way? She says that I am the only person who has a problem with it, but I’m simply the only one willing to speak up. Firing her is not an option. -- Fairfield, Conn. Dear Fairfield: If there is no consequence for dressing so unprofessionally, there is no reason for her to change her clothes. Dress codes should be enforced. We recommend you talk to whoever is in charge and ask that a dress code be established and consequences spelled out -- including termination for someone who repeatedly and deliberately refuses to adhere to the requirements of the job. This girl undoubtedly believes her exhibitionism is appealing. But it is actually a source of ogling and amusement at her expense. She should save it for after hours. Dear “No Hypocrite in Paducah, Ky.,” who is addicted to alcohol, criticized family members for being addicted to food. He said, “How is it more legitimate to grab a doughnut when under stress than to pour myself a cocktail?” There is a HUGE difference. I grew up in a home where both of my parents were alcoholics. Alcohol changes a person’s behavior toward others. Food does not. I would much rather have had obese parents than emotionally damaging alcoholics. I wouldn’t have needed so many years in therapy. -- Lynn in Louisville Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Frank H. Robinson, 78, of TaTa Creek, passed away Thursday, July 4th. Frank was born at the Red Cross Outpost Hospital in Rabbit Lake SK on August 2, 1934, the second of three kids between Evelyn (Allan, Terrace) and Dorothy (deceased, & Bob, Chilliwack) to parents Hamilton(Slim) and Pauline. During his younger years, his family homesteaded in the northwesterly area of Saskatchewan where Frank developed his lifelong love and everlasting enjoyment of the beauty and opportunities the outdoors had to offer. A few years after finishing Grade 9 by correspondence, he joined his Dad and Mom in Kimberley, starting his early career in the logging industry. In 1956 Frank met the love of his life, Rose, and her 3 boys, John (deceased), Dennis and Ronnie. After many happy years together Rose passed away in 2006. His family also included 10 aunts and uncles, and many nieces and nephews of 2 generations, whom he enjoyed and loved dearly. Frank always maintained a positive outlook on life and a wonderful appreciation of the best in all his family and friends. The service to honour Frank will be at the Marysville Community Church at 2pm Tuesday, July 9. Myra Farquhar officiating.

Kimberley’s First Saturday in July

Page 15

The third ‘First Saturday’ of the summer was a smash hit – the Platzl was booming with rocking tunes and a lively crowd. There was live music by rock band Sketch, Highland dance, games, booths selling stunning art, garage sales, car washes, high tea, treats and so much more. The event has something for everyone. Be sure not to miss the next one on August 3! Photos by Kaity Brown.

The family-friendly event has a little something for everyone - collectors, shoppers, movers and shakers, musicians, dancers, tea lovers and art enthusiasts.

Left to right: Jenny Wheatley (Dorset, England), Cory Horne, Sandra Roberts, Donna Sanche and Margaret Barclay enjoying high tea and sweets at the Kimberley Chateau.

Rock band Sketch gathered crowds at the First Saturday event with classic rock tunes that everyone could sing along to.

Natalie Kozbial and Samantha Crawford at the kids’ tent, full of games and crafts.

Dustin Mosseau, on the piano, performing for the people browsing the string of garage sales on Howard Street.
