In what will likely be the most expensive single-family property ever sold in this area, a private equestrian estate — Cherry Creek Estate Ranch — is being offered through an exclusive online auction service with an opening bid of “only” $1

million. The property has previously been listed for $7.5 million. The five bedroom, six and a half bath home on 320 acres is being auctioned through Interluxe, a company innovating the luxury real estate auction segment.

Fire damages historic Cranbrook building Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

A fire has damaged the historic Elko train station in Cranbrook. The fire started on the porch area of the building and spread to the attic and rear of the building before it could be extinguished. “Damage to the Elko station is considered minimal with some fire and smoke damage,”

said Chris Zettel, City of Cranbrook corporate communications officer. The fire broke out at about 12:20 a.m. on Wednesday, July 17. Cranbrook Fire and Emergency Services rushed to the scene with two engines and four firefighters, quickly followed by another 12 responders. Crews managed to

extinguish the fire quickly. “Cranbrook Fire and Emergency Services will be investigating the cause of the fire (Wednesday), in partnership with the CPR police and the RCMP,” said Zettel. The city said Wednesday afternoon that the cause of the fire has been deemed suspicious in nature

and RCMP are investigating. The Elko station is owned by the Canadian Museum of Rail Travel and is located at the former site of the museum, opposite the top of Baker Street. Built in 1901, the historic station was located at Elko, but the museum and Cranbrook Archives bought the building in 1987 and restored it.

Her grandfather, Robert D. Mather, started a sawmill near Fort Steele, which provided the lumber for the Windsor Hotel. After moving to Cranbrook and marrying in 1937 she raised her sons Peter and Leonard. Her grandsons Kevin and Krister now help run the family business.

Committee to take on that ton of bricks Council looks to Wellness and Heritage Committee for recommendations on old Water and Electrical Building

Arne Petryshen Townsman Staff

The fate of the brick garage behind city hall is still up in the air, with strong feelings on council for keeping it and for demolishing it. On Monday, council was presented with a petition signed by 200 people at Saturday’s Cranbrook Farmer’s Market asking for help in preserving the building. Resident Ken Haberman forwarded the petition along with a letter stating that the group is in support of keeping the building. Haberman and Rob Amsing were in council back in June as a delegation hoping to stall the city’s destruction of the building and show that there is interest in preserving it. “Many people believe that the Cranbrook City’s Water and Electrical Building is worth preserving, and if revitalized, will enhance downtown Cranbrook,” Haberman wrote.

Dave Humphrey also wrote a letter asking about a heritage registry. This prompted Roy Hales, who was acting CAO for the meeting, to explain how the current heritage bylaw works. “The city has a bylaw that designates municipal properties as municipal heritage properties,” Hales said. “There is a list of nine or so properties – including city hall and the rest of its property – in which the building out back that we talk so much about is located.” To make changes to a registered property, the owner has to get a permit from council. There was also a heritage registry created in 2003, but Hales said that through a nomination process there have not been any buildings on the list. “Nothing came forward to council,” Hales said. “We have this register in title, but with nothing on it.”

He said the federal and provincial governments have their own criteria, and the city should have a community heritage register that closely follows that. The city doesn’t have anyone on staff that has the qualifications or time to do an assessment of the properties that meet the criteria. Mayor Wayne Stetski suggested council get the Wellness and Heritage Committee to respond with recommendations on the options available. Coun. Angus Davis took a disapproving stance on those who want the building gone. “If someone’s been in favour of demolishing this then they have no love of history or the value of old buildings,” Davis said, noting what the Baker Hill Heritage Association was able to do, which was to make sure that buildings in that area that meet heritage values conformed

Local mountain biker off to France Cranbrook’s Jason de Rijk to compete in Trans Savoie race through the French Alps in August

Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

A Cranbrook mountain bike rider is heading to France next month to take part in a six-day endurance race through the French Alps. Jason de Rijk, who owns Sidekick Stickers, has been a keen mountain bike rider since before he moved to Cranbrook from Lethbridge five years ago. “We have a great little nook here in the East Kootenay,” he said. “There is a lot of great stuff around here that we are lucky to have all to ourselves.” Having competed

and placed in mountain bike competitions around western Canada and the U.S., de Rijk is now setting his sights on conquering a new series of mountains: the French Alps. “We live in the Rockies which are extremely beautiful, and I’ve always had the desire to go to somewhere that’s like it,” he said. “The biking is going to be sweet, and I’ve always wanted to see the Alps. Taking my bike along in a race is just a bonus.” Held from August 18 to 23, the Trans Savoie is a rally-style race where

only the downhill sections are timed. The course begins in Val D’Isere, France, and passes through 13 villages to its conclusion in Chamonix. But between the villages, the route stays in the mountains on single track, de Rijk explains. “There are no roads, there are no quad trails,” he said. “It’s pristine, beautiful, meant for bikes, meant for hiking, there certainly isn’t any motorized use. It’s going to be beautiful. “I’m getting excited! My palms are sweating.” Each of the six days consists of four or five

Following, there will be a public open house of the Fire Hall, with tours of the fire trucks, the building and other firefighting equipment. Everyone is welcome to attend.

timed stages as the riders rocket downhill, around 5,000 metres (16,400 feet) each day. The uphill sections – about 1,000 metres (3,280 feet) a day – are not timed, and in many cases riders can use existing ski facilities to reach the mountain tops. “A lot of the uphills are covered by chair lifts or trams or gondolas. They might even truck you for portions of the uphill,” said de Rijk. To help him achieve his dream, de Rijk has put together a fundraiser raffle. Thanks to supporters such as Cranbrook Dodge, Favorit Cycle and Ski, High Country Sports, Max’s Place, Tim Hortons, Canadian Rockies International Airport, Giant and Gore Bike Wear, more than $1,000 in prizes are going to be raffled off. Prizes include a Giant Via town bike, Briko biking shades, a Tassimo home brewer, and a High Country gift certificate. Tickets are $10 each and available at Favorit Cycle and Ski, High Country, Max’s Place and Sidekick Stickers. De Rijk said Cranbrook Dodge and a local dentist who doesn’t want to be identified have both chipped in to support him in the competition.

MLA says cabinet minister open to allowing deer hazing C AROLYN GR ANT Daily Bulletin

The conversation about the issue of urban deer in B.C. communities is widespread, from neighbours on the street corner to the higher echelons of the provincial government. Columbia River Revelstoke MLA Norm Macdonald recently had a meeting with Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations Minister Steve Thomson. The subject was deer hazing and Kimberley’s one-day trial at the end of May. Deer hazing, in which trained dogs are used to “herd” the deer out of town, is currently prohibited under provincial law. But following the experiment in Kim-

berley, which by all accounts was successful, Macdonald believes there could be some momentum into having that law changed to allow more deer hazing. “The Minister said he was open to the idea and looking into it,” Macdonald said. “He said he thought it was a good idea. He has staff working on it.” If it does involve a legislative change to the Wildlife Act to allow for dogs to chase deer, Macdonald said it would only be a small change and therefore quite easily made. “It could be done for the next session but that’s for Legislative Management to decide. We are scheduled to sit in the fall but there’s an expectation we may

not, given past history. But even if we don’t sit until next winter, there’s still time.” The Minister did not make a commitment and Macdonald says these conversations are quite casual, but he felt encouraged. “There has been a resistance to changing the Act somewhere in the bureaucracy in the past,” he said. “But the Minister does get final say and his response indicates an openness. That’s encouraging.” In a letter to Macdonald, Minister Thomson made no commitment but did say: “The provincial government supports communities taking creative approaches to managing urban deer and other wildlife.”

Gordon Terrace has new vice-principal Submitted

The School District 5 (SD5) Board of Education recently appointed Kaley Wasylowich as temporary vice-principal at Gordon Terrace Elementary School. Born in Edmonton, Wasylowich attended the University of Alberta. Moving to the East Kootenay to begin her career in education, she has spent the past 21 years with SD5. Wasylowich previously taught Grades 7, 8 and 9 Band at Parkland Middle School. During her time at Parkland, Wasylowich involved her students in Festival competitions in Red Deer, Penticton, San Francisco and Magic Music Days in Disneyland.

“I’ve enjoyed every moment at Parkland,” Wasylowich said. “My students have been such an appreciative, responsible and fun group. My Grade 7s ranked the second highest in their category at the Festival of Bands Competition in Red Deer, and I took the biggest group ever – 100 students – to perform at Magic Music Days in Disneyland this June. It’s going to be difficult to leave them.” Wasylowich says that while she’ll miss her “big” kids tremendously, she’s excited to get back to working with the little guys. SD5 Board Chair, Frank Lento, says Wasylowich will make music wherever she goes. “Kaley has a great tal-

ent for motivating others to want to do their best. Her enthusiasm and leadership will be a great asset to Gordon Terrace. Wasylowich has also

been a pianist for the Symphony of the Kootenays and accompanied the Mount Baker Secondary School Vocal Jazz Ensemble and Concert Choir.

A satisfying flight of fancy I had a nerve-wracking couple of days toward the end of this week because this novel took me longer than a week to read. Normally Sunday afternoon rolls along and I am starting on the next book, but this past Sunday morning I was only two thirds of the way through the novel. And I spent Sunday preparing for a barbecue with friends so I didn’t have time to read at all. It took a couple of evenings of dedicated reading and late nights reading by bedside light to finish this novel. It’s not that it was a hard read; it was just longer than I realized going in. That’s one of the problems with a Kindle — you can’t immediately see and feel how long a book is. Now I need to choose a quick read to make up for lost time. Hmm, what to choose? A Nicholas Sparks? I kid: his novels are overly long, and I’m not a fan. The last one I read, “Safe Haven” seemed to be full of words for their own sake, rather than advancing plot or character. There were a couple of pages where Sparks described two people setting a table for lunch. Maybe I missed the sexual tension that was supposed to charge their actions. *** This week’s novel is “Life

Sally Macdonald After Life” by Kate Atkinson. If you could see the future and you were in the prime of your life in Europe in the 1930s, what would you do? Think on that one a little and “assassinate Hitler” might come to mind. Indeed, that’s just how this novel opens, with the female British protagonist shooting Hitler in a cafe, then she is shot herself. The novel then doubles back on itself (oh boy, does it ever) to explore the story that led to this point. The premise of “Life After Life”, by British author Kate Atkinson who already has four bestsellers under her belt, is that Ursula is endlessly reincarnated as herself, time after time, with each life eerily similar to the last but different in momentous ways. She is born in a snowstorm

in 1910, and in her first life she dies without taking a breath, strangled by the umbilical cord. She starts again, survives, and lives to five years old, when she drowns. And so on. Yet Ursula Todd is not aware that this is what’s happening to her; at first she has just a strange sense of deja vu, feeling like she has seen things before. It develops to an inexplicable sense of impending doom that she must prevent, and with each life her understanding of what is happening to her deepens. Finally, she sees all and knows what she has to do. Ursula lives through the grimmest times in 20th century history, in London during the

air raids, in Berlin as it falls to the Soviets, sometimes making it through the war, more often dying in tragic circumstances. But for all this history, the novel is intensely personal. It’s about how Ursula fairs during the wars, how her family and friends cope. It’s incredibly satisfying to read, because just as soon as a favourite character is killed off, Ursula is reincarnated and given a chance to save them. When it boils down to it, while Ursula is a self-declared patriot, her actions are to protect her idyllic childhood home and her dear family, as much as out of a broader sense of cosmic duty. I wished that Atkinson had explored more deeply how the world would be different if Hitler had not become the Fuhrer. But that is a pretty big ask, and I should have known by the end that this was not her intent. I’ve watched the movie “Groundhog Day”, and of course the comparison is legitimate. But I found “Groundhog Day” just extremely banal and frustrating. “Life After Life” is just the opposite: it celebrates the ordinary as beautiful, and lets you appreciate every character for as long as they are part of Ursula’s story.

Opinion/Events Letters to the Editor


Now that our Premier Christy Clark has secured a seat in Victoria, it seems a good time to acknowledge the achievements of our M.L.A., the Honorable Bill Bennett, in winning yet another election victory and on being appointed Minister of Energy & Mines as well as Chairman of the Core

Review Board. Congratulations and best wishes to Mr. Bennett; he is going to be very busy for the next year or two and time spent in the East Kootenay will be limited. While I am sure that all MLAs enjoy delivering specific benefits to their own ridings, we should bear in mind that they have much larger issues to deal with; all

MLAs — and particularly cabinet ministers — have responsibility for the whole of B.C. and, sometimes, their decisions will not sit well with the folks back home. C’est la vie! Bud Abbott Cranbrook

Nathan Horton has surgery to repair injured shoulder COLUMBUS, Ohio - Columbus Blue Jackets forward Nathan Horton has undergone surgery to repair a shoulder injury suffered during the Stanley Cup finals, general manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced on Wednesday. The surgery was performed by Dr. Jon Warner at the Boston Shoulder Institute at Massachusetts General Hospital. Horton signed a seven-year, $37.1-million contract with the Blue Jackets on July 5. He has 198 goals and 204 assists for 402 points with 543 penalty minutes in 591 career NHL games with the Florida Panthers and Boston Bruins. This past season, he had 13 goals and nine assists in 43 games with the Bruins before picking up seven goals and 12 assists in 22 Stanley Cup Playoff games. Associated Press

Citing social unrest, FIFA president says Brazil may be wrong choice for World Cup

GOING, Austria - FIFA President Sepp Blatter says Brazil might have been the wrong choice as host of the 2014 World Cup if the tournament is affected by similar social protests as at last month’s Confederations Cup. Blatter told German press agency DPA that “if this happens again we have to question whether we made the wrong decision awarding the hosting rights.” Hundreds of thousands of Brazilians took to the streets during the warm-up tournament in June, demanding better public services and expressing their anger over the costs to stage the World Cup.

Manchester United rejects Chelsea’s bid for striker Wayne Rooney

LONDON - Chelsea’s audacious bid to sign striker Wayne Rooney from Manchester United has been rejected by the Premier League champions. The 27-year-old Rooney has been pushing for a move since expressing his frustration to the club about his lack of playing time towards the end of last season. But both Alex Ferguson and David Moyes, who succeeded his fellow Scot as manager in May, have insisted Rooney is not for sale since he has two years left on his contract. Despite those public statements, Chelsea has maintained its pursuit of the England striker, culminating in a formal bid submitted to its Premier League rival. Associated Press

Rocky Mountain Bandits catcher Greg Wimmer confers with his pitcher in a timeout during a game against the Cranbrook Senior Men’s team at Confederation Park on Wednesday night.

Bandits tune up for weekend home set TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Rocky Mountain Bandits learned some lessons in a 14-7 loss to the Cranbrook Senior Men’s team on Wednesday night at Confederation Park. Namely how costly errors can be. But it’s better to learn a few things against some older veterans and work out any problems before heading into their final home set against the Whitefish Glacier B

team this Saturday afternoon. The senior men’s team, the White Sox, jumped up to a 4-1 lead after two innings, and scoring another three runs soon after. “It was better than it usually is, at the beginning of the game anyway,” said pitcher Devon Marra. “Then we let those three runs in on that one error and that kind of brought everyone down and it was just a mood-killer.” A few missed catch-

es in the outfield, along with some troubles on the pitching mound, translated into a 14-3 lead for the White Sox after five innings. However, the Bandits started working their bats in the sixth inning, and along with

a costly error by the White Sox and some nifty base-stealing from Brandon Ouillette, the Bandits managed to do some damage and chip away at the deficit to end the game at 14-7. “When they put Jordan Torgerson up on the mound, he wasn’t throwing very many strikes and we were getting a little more excited, like ‘Hey, we have a chance at this,’” said Marra. “We just went out and played.” The Bandits will stay

home this weekend and take on the Glacier B team, a squad they’ve faced a few times this season, with mixed results. “Their starting pitcher, he pitches against us a lot and we know he’s not very confident,” said Marra. “So we should jump on that and get some good solid hits.” Confederation Park will host both of the double-header games on Saturday, which kick off at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.

JulyFest to feature roller derby bout Tre vor Cr awley Sports Editor

Though JulyFest will have the usual bocce and soccer tournaments going on, there will be a new, but familiar, event that will make it’s debut in the Kimberley Civic Centre on Friday night. The roller derby girls will hit the concrete inside the arena at 7 p.m., marking the first time that such an event will be featured in JulyFest. Tickets for the derby are only available at the Civic Centre doors. The Kimberley derby team, the Bavarian Barbarians, will be playing a squad made up of other teams in the East Kootenay Roller Derby League. As with every derby event, this one has a unique title, as the girls have christened it the Invasion of the Bocce Snatchers. The girls will be divided into two teams as the Belles of the Balls take on the Meanie Pachinis. The Barbarians are hoping to make it an an-

nual event, as it runs right smack in the middle of the EKRDL season. If you miss the bout, the derby girls will be in the JulyFest parade on Saturday, and will be volunteering around Kimberley for the weekend. Pamela Currie, who goes by the moniker Demolition Dolly when she’s out on the derby track, is encouraged by all the support for derby when the team is out and about in the community, referring to a car wash the team did a few weeks ago. “For us, it was pretty phenomenal,” Currie said. “It was steady the whole day and it was really great for people to see us outside of derby, outside of the rink. There was a lot of community support.” Submitted photo

Rule changes have not reduced concussions rates in NHL Helen Br answell Canadian Press

TORONTO - A recent NHL rule change designed to cut down on the number of concussions in the league hasn’t made a difference, a new study suggests. The research suggests the rule, which outlawed bodychecks aimed at the head and checking from a player’s blind side, has not led to lower concussion rates among pro hockey players since it came into force in the 201011 season. The senior author of the work said the league should take another crack at the rule change, noting that as it

stands the wording is too subjective and gives referees leeway not to enforce it. “If player safety is the prime priority of the NHL in bringing this kind of rule in ... then they need to relook at this in a very serious way and adjust things,” said Dr. Michael Cusimano, a neurosurgeon who heads the injury prevention research unit at Toronto’s St. Michael’s Hospital. “If it isn’t a priority, I could see them just leaving things the way they are and it’s kind of a Band-Aid response to a major problem.” The NHL did not respond Wednesday to a


request for comment on the article. And the NHL Players’ Association declined to comment because it hadn’t had a chance to review the study. But another concussion expert applauded the work, saying Cusimano and his team had performed a service by exploring the impact of the rule change. Dr. Charles Tator, a brain surgeon with Toronto Western Hospital, said the change’s lack of impact has an effect not just in the arenas of the National Hockey League, but on rinks where kids who dream of making it to the NHL some day emulate their professional


heroes. “Professional hockey is still a bad influence on the amateurs,” said Tator, who is project leader for the Canadian Sports Concussion Project at the Krembil Neuroscience Centre.

“I wasn’t totally surprised, but I was disappointed that we weren’t able to show a difference.” Dr. Michael Cusimano The study was published Wednesday in the journal PLoS One. Cusimano and colleagues painstakingly put together data on reports of concussions and suspected concussions - based on reports of symptoms - from a variety of sources. Some of the information came from teams,

GULLANE - The practice round schedule posted each day at Muirfield is not the only way to determine how players are getting ready for the British Open. Johnson Wagner’s name was on the tee sheet at St. Andrews over the weekend.

Geoff Ogilvy could be found on the other side of the country, on links courses like Turnberry, Royal Troon and Western Gailes. Justin Rose was at North Berwick. So were Bubba Watson and Luke Donald, who got in plenty of golf along the Firth of Forth the week before the British Open. It’s not unusual for

The analysis also showed that the type of hits outlawed by the NHL rule weren’t actually the major cause of concussions. About 28 per cent of interactions produced a concussion also generated a penalty call, said Cusimano. In that 28 per cent, the bulk of the penalties were for fighting. “And blindsiding, which was what the rule was initially was written about, was only 4.1 per cent of all those.... But four per cent of 28 per cent is a very small number.” “I wasn’t totally surprised, but I was disappointed that we weren’t able to show a difference,” Cusimano said. “Part of it’s the way the rule’s written. Part of it’s the way the rule is enforced. Part of it’s the penalties associated with the rule. And part of it is that concussions are also coming from other causes like fight-

ing, that is still allowed.” The way the NHL rule is worded gives referees outs to avoid levying penalties for some of the hits, for instance in cases where players are deemed to have put themselves in a vulnerable position. “So it’s like his fault, because he put himself into a vulnerable position. And this highlights one of the major problems in sport and particularly in hockey these days. We victimize the victim even more, rather than looking at the game and the system and saying: ‘What can we do to reduce these injuries?”’ Cusimano said. He suggested that if the league wants to get serious about protecting players, it has to raise the cost of concussion-inducing hits, both on the player who inflicts the injury, and on the team which sent him out to do it.

others from media reports. The information was gathered for both the NHL and the Ontario Hockey League, which has stricter rules on checks to the head than the NHL does. The OHL rule penalizes any hit to the head of another player, intentional or unintentional. The data showed that there was no statistical significance in the incidence of concussions in the NHL in the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons compared to the 2009-10 season. That latter was the year before the NHL rule change went into effect. The researchers estimated there were about 5.23 concussions per 100 games in the NHL regular season. Despite its stiffer rule, the OHL didn’t have markedly different concussion rates, clocking 5.05 per 100 games in the regular season.

players to take off from their regular tours a week before a major to prepare. What’s different about the British Open isn’t everything? - is that preparations aren’t limited to the course they will be playing. “You can prepare for the U.S. Open on the range,” Ogilvy said Wednesday. “But you can only prepare for The Open on the course. And it doesn’t necessarily have to be the course you’re playing. The seaside courses here, they’re the only courses with turf like this, with sand like this. There’s something different about the seaside wind in Scotland. ... You can fly to Shanghai or Abu Dhabi and work on what you need at home. But you can’t work on what you need at home until you get here.” Tiger Woods, a threetime Open champion, arrived Sunday morning and has played nine holes a day. There was a time he would leave home a week early and head to Ireland with Mark O’Meara and David Duval, both former Open champions, and play the links courses there. Woods loves to recall his first experience with links golf in 1995 as the U.S. Amateur champion. He played the Scottish

Open at Carnoustie, and then drove down the North Sea shoreline to St. Andrews for the British Open. “I absolutely fell in love with it, to be able to dink a 5-iron from 150 yards and bump it on the ground, or vice versa have 260 out and hit a 4-iron and it bounces over the green. That, to me, is pretty neat. Because we play everywhere around the world - an airborne game where you have to hit the ball straight up in the air and make it stop. Here it’s different. A draw will go one distance, a fade will go another, and they’re so dramatic. And I just absolutely love it.” True, adjusting to links golf can just as easily take place at Muirfield, where the British Open starts Thursday. Defending champion Ernie Els came down from Castle Stuart and has stayed at Muirfield, wrapping up his final practice round Wednesday just after 6 p.m. The forecast is dry for the week, with perhaps some mist on the weekend. Even though officials had the course just the way they wanted it early in the week, they have turned on a few sprinklers in the evening to keep it from getting overcooked.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT Jaffray’s Dean Brody scores five CCMA nominations

Thursday, JULY 18, 2013

Page 11

Adrian Lee Canadian Press

TORONTO — With seven nominations, Gord Bamford has taken the early lead at this year’s Canadian Country Music Association awards. The nominations were announced Wednesday, and for a second straight year, Bamford will go toe-totoe with Nova Scotia-based Dean Brody, who has five nominations of his own. For 37-year-old Gord Bamford, who has taken home hardware four of the last five years, this is certainly not old hat. “No, it never gets boring — it gets a little nerve-racking,’’ says the Alberta singer, up for categories including album of the year, songwriter of the year and the fans’ choice award. “The Canadian music industry is so great, the country music industry is so competitive with so many great new bands, you’ve always got to be at the top of your game, and hopefully it pans out.’’ Brody and Bamford are just a few of the 130 artists and groups up for the Canadian country music industry’s most vaunted prizes, including veteran songbird Michelle Wright for female artist of the year, platinum recording artist Terri Clark for video of the year and Scotland-born Johnny Reid for fans’ choice. “(Canadian country music) is stronger than ever,’’ says Bamford. “People should start paying a little more attention, because we’ve got such a great industry here, and such a great opportunity to play music.’’ Among the first-time nominees feeding the industry-wide competition Bamford sees is Autumn Hill, one of 29 other artists or groups making their CCMA debut. The band, composed of Calgary’s Tareya Green and Toronto’s Mike Robins, could barely contain laughter and wide smiles about being nominated for the rising star award. “It’s kind of the top, just to be in the company of such amazing artists,’’ says Green. “(Robins) was saying earlier,

Autumn Hill were also announced as one of the performers for the show, which airs on Sept. 28. The pair will join Grammy-nominated Tennessee troupe the Band Perry and circuit veterans Emerson Drive, among other performers yet to be revealed. For their part, Emerson Drive members are more philosophical about the honour. “Obviously to get nominations helps your career, winning helps your career, we’ve been

fortunate we’ve won a few,’’ says lead singer Brad Manes. “We’re a road band though — it doesn’t matter whether we win or lose, we’re back on the road playing for fans who have supported our career from day one.’’ The CCMAs, which will conclude Country Music Week, will be held at Rexall Place in Edmonton — not far from the floods that devastated huge swaths of the area around Calgary. Green, born and raised in Calgary, says her brother Sean has been volunteering to help in High River. The band has teamed up with the Red Cross to

raise funds for recovery efforts at shows this summer. “I think (Country Music Week) would just infuse any sort of energy or sense of community — any positivity helps with everyone’s spirit,’’ she said. “It’s incredible to see them all come together and rebuilding the city.’’ “Albertans will really come together ... it’s definitely a tragedy,’’ Bamford says. “That’s what we do as Canadians, we help each other out.’’ The ceremony will be broadcast on CBCTV at 8 p.m. ET with encore performances later that night on Country Music Television.

HALIFAX — The chief curator of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia says Alex Colville’s work spoke a universal language that reflected what it means to be human. Sarah Fillmore says Colville will be remembered as both a gentleman and extraordinary artist whose tranquil but slightly unsettling work fo-

cused on routine moments in life. Fillmore, whose gallery features some of Colville’s work, says the incredible response to his death from artists across the spectrum including sculptors and jewellers speaks to the high esteem in which he was held. Colville died Tuesday in Wolfville, N.S. He was 92.

Rolling Stone takes heat for cover featuring Boston bomb suspect Tsarnaev Associated Press

BOSTON — A Rolling Stone cover story on Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev isn’t on the stands yet but it’s already generating controversy, with at least two retailers announcing Wednesday that they will not carry the issue. The cover of the magazine’s Aug. 1 edition is a photo in which Tsarnaev looks more like one of the rock stars that usually grace it than a suspect in the April 15 bombings at the marathon finish line that killed three and wounded more than 260. A preview on the magazine’s website says the story by contributing editor Janet Reitman traces how “a bright kid with a

Rolling Stone’s August cover has caused uproar. charming future became a monster.’’ Rolling Stone editors said in a statement that

the story falls within the traditions of journalism and the magazine’s commitment to serious

and thoughtful coverage. “The fact that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is young, and in the same age group as many of our readers, makes it all the more important for us to examine the complexities of this issue and gain a more complete understanding of how a tragedy like this happens,’’ the statement said. The CVS pharmacy chain, based about 50 miles (80 kilometres) from Boston in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, and a Rockland, Massachusetts-based convenience store chain, Tedeschi Food Shops, both said they will not carry the magazine. “Tedeschi Food Shops supports the need to share the news with everyone, but can-

not support actions that serve to glorify the evil actions of anyone,’’ the chain said on its Facebook page. “Music and terrorism don’t mix!’’ One of the marathon runners, Lauren Gabler, who works in IT consulting in Washington and was running her fourth Boston Marathon this year, said she at first thought the Rolling Stone photo was of a model or rock star and was surprised when she realized it was Tsarnaev. “The cover almost tricks you into what you’re looking at,’’ she said. She had finished the race well ahead of when the bombs went off hours into the race but was two blocks away headed to brunch when she heard and felt the explosions. She was not hurt. “I haven’t read the article yet, and I know it will probably be quite in-depth, but my initial reaction is that the photo that’s being used almost makes him look like a good guy,’’ she said. Tsarnaev has pleaded not guilty in the bombings.

96-year-old grocery store owner fends off masked robber ASSOCIATED PRESS

MARSHFIELD, Wis. — A masked robber apparently thought the 96-year-old owner of a neighbourhood grocery store in Midwestern Wisconsin state would be an easy target for his crime. He was so wrong. Margaretta Wolf has owned the store bearing her family name for 54 years. And she wasn’t about to turn over her cash to the armed intruder after he ordered her to open the cash register. “I said: ‘I’m not opening up that cash register and that’s it, I’m not opening it. I said you can have all the Tootsie Rolls you want but I am not opening that cash register,’’’ Wolf said. The man in the silver mask and carrying a knife continued to give Wolf orders during the robbery attempt Monday. “He said, ‘Walk in the back of the store,’ I said, ‘I’m not walking no place, I’m standing right here,’’’ Wolf recounted. The elderly store owner stood her ground when the man flashed a pocketknife and placed it on the counter. “I said, ‘I’ll press a button and I’ll have somebody here in seconds,’’’ she said. Wolf said the would-be robber appeared frustrated, looked around, spotted a security camera in the corner, grabbed the knife and fled. Marshfield Police Lt. Darren Larsen told WAOW-TV he’s just glad Wolf is OK.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: My daughter, “Elizabeth,” is a professional who is married to an older man. I’ll call him “Jacob.” They have two children. Elizabeth recently was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and is going through intense chemotherapy. Early in her treatment, Jacob used to help a lot around the house with laundry and meals, and took good care of the kids. But she is halfway through her treatments, and although Jacob still looks after Elizabeth and the children, he expects her to do a lot more around the house. Of course, as soon as Elizabeth feels a little strong, she goes beyond her capacity and does too much. This aggravates me. Elizabeth never demands that Jacob help more. I had an argument with him over it. On the day of one of her treatments, I reminded him to be home in time to pick up the oldest child from school. He replied, “I will see when I will be finished at my mother’s.” I told him that on the day of the chemo, he cannot leave his wife alone with two children, supper and homework time. It is very tiring for her. He said he does not need to be reminded. Then we got into an argument, and he said we do not love him, we only do things for our daughter, and we are lucky he does not close the door in our faces. Annie, I worry about Elizabeth’s strength. We help as much as we can by cooking some meals, picking up the oldest from school, helping him with homework and taking the youngest so Elizabeth can rest. But Jacob allows her to do the laundry, cooking and shopping while he cuts the bushes, cleans the gutters and prays (he is very religious). She is not going to get well if she is exhausted. My sweet daughter always takes her husband’s side, and my husband tells me to look after my own health, because I had a mild heart attack a few months ago. How do we handle this? -- Distraught Mother Dear Distraught: We know you want Jacob to take over all of these chores, and we agree that he should do more on the days when Elizabeth has her chemo. But try to be more compassionate. Jacob is going through a difficult period, too, and also needs a break. Please do what you can for your daughter’s family. It is a great help when you can cook a meal or take the kids. If you can afford to hire someone to assist on the days when Elizabeth has a chemo treatment, that would be an amazing gift. Otherwise, please back off a bit. You are not helping yourself or your daughter by getting into fights with her husband and adding stress to her life. Dear Annie: “Iowa” wrote to say that her mother suggested she put down her 13-yearold cat because he has diabetes. She was upset that Mom was so negative. But Mom may be wiser than you think. I cared for my 18-year-old diabetic cat, who needed insulin shots daily. While the shots are easy to administer, the main problem is having to schedule your entire life around those injections. If “Iowa” is still in school, has a boyfriend and perhaps a parttime job and a busy social calendar, she might discover the responsibility of daily shots at regular times is a lot to incorporate. I was unable to accept a job that required irregular shifts and had to forgo summer vacations that involved being out of town unless I could take my cat with me. Because I made significant sacrifices for my cat, she enjoyed a good quality of life for five years. But the commitment is far more than just poking the cat with a needle. It is a major responsibility she cannot shirk when something more interesting comes up. -Lifetime Cat Lover Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Joan was born on March 22, 1948 in Cape Town, South Africa. Joan loved her family, friends and hockey. She spent her life caring not only for her own children, but also for many others’ children in her loving day home. She had an amazing ability to fall in love with all children and cared for them as if they were her own. Joan always had an open door policy in her home. She welcomed unexpected drop-ins from friends whom she greeted with a warm smile, tea and cake. Joan had an unwavering faith in God and her Saviour Jesus Christ. She faced many life challenges with grace and a steadfast belief in the power of prayer. She fought a brave and exhausting battle with diabetes and its many side effects over the past fifteen years. True to her nature, she did so with grace and an amazing sense of humour. Joan was an amazing wife and life partner to Gerald Brinders. They married December 12, 1970 and had dated for six years prior to that time. They travelled the world, lived in South Africa and the United States Of America before settling in their beloved Cranbrook. Joan was a wonderful role model of inspiration for her children and four grandchildren and all who knew her. After losing her sight and much of her mobility in 2000, Joan developed a keen interest in hockey. Nothing gave her greater pleasure than sitting by the radio listening to the Kootenay Ice play by play. Joan is survived by her loving husband Gerald Brinders, daughters Petula (Tony) Yanew, Juliana (Lawrence) Williams, Jude (Christy) Brinders , granddaughters Jessica Williams, Rachel Yanew and Rebecca Yanew, grandson Jackson Brinders, and brothers Robert, Tyrone and Andre Jackson.

Ezekiel â&#x20AC;&#x153;Zekeâ&#x20AC;? Hawk Fantuz was born on January 21, 1993 weighing just over 4lbs and passed away on June 24, 2013. He grew from a tiny preemie baby to a fine young man in he blink of an eye. He always had a wonderful smile for everyone he met and he loved to talk about the outdoors, work, hunting, basketball, archery â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but especially hunting. Zeke graduated from Fernie Senior Secondary School in 2011 and since that time had attended College of the Rockies in Cranbrook, spent time working, hunting and doing anything else that interested him. This fall would have seen him attending Selkirk College in Castlegar, where he would have been taking the Recreation, Fish and Wildlife Course. Zekeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love for his family and friends was possibly the only thing that superseded his passion for the outdoors and hunting.

Frank was born in Natal, British Columbia on April 2, 1919. He grew up in the beautiful Elk Valley and enjoyed hunting, fishing and trapping throughout the valley and in various other communities throughout his life. As a young man Frank served in the Canadian Army in World War II and then returned to Canada to start a new life where he worked in various jobs in mining, forestry, on the railroad, and at a sawmill. He lived throughout different parts of British Columbia, but spent most of his life with his loving family in the East Kootenays. Frank had a terrific zest for life. He enjoyed a good retirement which included over 20 years of living in Morrissey engaged in active fishing, hunting, and trapping until his health slowed him down from his favourite outdoor activities.

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. — The South Beach, Fla., mansion once owned by Italian designer Gianni Versace and the place he was fatally shot is headed for the auction block. Fisher Auction Company is handling the sale, set for Sept. 17. The 23,000 squarefoot oceanfront mansion had previously been listed for $125 million. Originally built in 1930, the 10-bedroom, 11-bathroom, gated home features a 54-foot long mosaic pool lined with 24-karat gold. It also includes numerous frescos, ornate statues, arched doorways and an open air courtyard. “We are very pleased to have the opportunity to manage the sale of this one-of-a-kind property,’’ said Lamar Fisher, President and CEO of Fisher Auction Com-

pany, who said the sale should draw prospective buyers from around the world. In 1997, the 50-year-old Versace was killed in front of the property by a man who later committed suicide. Versace had purchased the home in 1992 and spent about $33 million renovating and adding another wing. Tourists can still routinely be spotted taking photos in front of the house. The property had been operating as a 10room boutique hotel for several years but closed earlier this year. A bankruptcy court has appointed Fisher Auction Company to handle the sale, in conjunction with Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate. Versace had many famous friends including Princess Diana, Madonna, Elton John and Cher.

The one-acre property features ten bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, seven fireplaces, a garage for 12 cars and a guesthouse.

Astronaut Karen Nyberg assists astronaut Luca Parmitano remove his space suit after a dangerous water leak aboard the International Space Station on Tuesday, July 16, 2013.

NASA perplexed by Italian astronaut’s flooded helmet Marcia Dunn Associated Press

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — The astronaut who came close to drowning in a flooded helmet is searching for clues in his spacesuit. So far, neither Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano nor engineers in Houston have uncovered the cause of Tuesday’s close call outside the International Space Station. The spacewalk was aborted after water leaked into his helmet. The main suspect is the suit’s cooling sys-

tem. He was unable to speak or hear as the spacewalk came to a hasty close. His eyes were also soaked. NASA says Parmitano could have choked or drowned. On Wednesday, the next NASA astronaut who’s supposed to fly to the space station, Michael Hopkins, said the important thing is that the spacewalkers got back in safely. He’s confident NASA will solve the mystery before sending anyone else out the hatch.
