Proudly serving Cranbrook and area since 1951


On Wednesday, July 24, more than 150 members of the Cranbrook stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints began a journey meant to demonstrate the hardships the Mormon pioneers went through in the mid-1800s. The four-day trek will take the group in a loop beneath the Steeples mountain range and past Horseshoe Lake.

The bill for backroads will be $5.5 million The long list of forestry roads closed by June’s flooding in the East Kootenay comes with a multi-million-dollar price tag S A L LY M AC D O N A L D Townsman Staff

More than 50 sites and 30 bridges on the East Kootenay’s backcountry roads need to be repaired, with the damage estimate at $5.5 million. Ray Morello, manager of the Rocky Mountain Forest District, said work has started to assess each site individually, but it’s a complex process. “Just the scope of this, with the number of bridges and pieces of road that will have to be addressed, that’s why it takes some time,” said

Morello. “We are trying to figure out what has to be done first. It’s not as simple as just getting out there and regrading a road or reinstalling a culvert.” Morello said that the forest district has identified three drainages that are the highest priority to repair: roads in the White River, Bull River and Elk River drainages. “That’s where our focus will be,” he said. The first step is an engineering assessment on each site.

“For example, if a bridge has been destroyed, the engineers have to determine what size bridge will now be required,” said Morello. “Some of the crossings are no longer suitable so we may have to assess if the crossing needs to be relocated to a different spot.” Once a new bridge is ordered, it is built by an engineering firm and transported to the area. Then abutments must be built and installed, before finally the bridge can be put in. “That’s all quite a process to do,” said Morello.

Similarly, some sections of road may need to be relocated. “Some sections of road have been completely removed by the creeks, so we have to make an assessment if we can rebuild the road in that location. Then we have to have a biologist make a call on whether we can do work to reestablish roads which the river has now carved out.” Money to do the work is not really a problem at the moment, Morello said. “We are using existing funding to get the assess-

ments done and get as much work done as we can before the window of opportunity for this season will end.” The forest district, under the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, will apply to have those costs reimbursed later under Emergency Management B.C., which provides money for unforeseen events such as the flooding that caused this massive amount of damage. Creating a time frame for when roads will be reopened – and if it will be

this summer – is practically impossible at this point, Morello said. “That’s pretty hard to say right now,” he said. “As soon as we have those assessments, we will start tendering the works. “You have to be mindful that some of these sites are high elevation sites, so winter comes early. “From October onward, it may be unsuitable to do those road repairs.” For a full list of backcountry road closures, visit services/road-works.htm.

World Hepatitis Day a reminder to get tested Arne Petryshen Townsman Staff

This Sunday, July 28, is World Hepatitis Day and those in the care field hope that people will take this as an opportunity to get tested for Hepatitis C. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hepatitis C is considered a silent epidemic because you can live with it for about 20 years

with minimal or no symptoms, though about 20 per cent can clear it,â&#x20AC;? said Kelly Ferguson, from East Kootenay ANKORS. She said that for World Hepatitis Day there are events around the world in relation to Hepatitis. Hepatitis A is caused by fecal oral matter, so it

EK Energy Diet launches Friday Townsman Staff

The East Kootenay Energy Diet is launching this Friday, July 26. The kick-off will include a free barbecue at 12 p.m. at Cranbrookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rotary Park. The Energy Diet is a way for residents to save on energy and money. It follows in the footsteps of the successful Rossland Energy Diet, which took place last year in the West Kootenay. Those keen on cutting back their homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s energy consumption can sign on for the diet Friday at the event. Pre-registration is available through www.eked. ca. Then in September, there will be community launches across the East Kootenay which will present another chance to sign up for those who miss the barbecue. Megan Lohmann, the Regional District of East Kootenayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new community energy manager, said the Energy Diet is a program designed to allow residents to have an energy assessment of their home, complete energy efficiency upgrades, and access various rebates and subsidies for the assessment and renovations performed. Bill Bennett, Minister of Energy and Mines, will be joined by the partners who are making this possible: the Regional District of East Kootenay, BC Hydro, Columbia Basin Trust and FortisBC. Bennett said he was delighted that BC Hydro and CBT recognize the importance of providing

opportunities for rural communities in B.C. to participate in energy conservation programs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By piloting their Community Energy Manager position here in the East Kootenay, residents will have opportunities to save energy and money through this innovative, collaborative partnership,â&#x20AC;? he said. Come out for the East Kootenay Energy Diet launch and a free burger at Rotary Park in Cranbrook at 12 p.m. Friday, July 26.

means you have to ingest fecal matter to get it. About 80 per cent of people can clear the virus on their own. Hepatitis B is a sexually transmitted infection. In B.C. kids have been getting vaccinated for it in Grade Six since 1994. Hepatitis C is usually passed on through high risk behaviour, such as through injection drug use which accounts for 70 per cent of new cases. Ferguson said snorting and smoking drugs is also a possible passageway if the object used for the task is shared. Symptoms of Hepatitis C can include psoriasis of the liver, liver tumours, diabetes, and people may become more prone to pneumonia. Gary Dalton, care team co-ordinator at ANKORS, said part of the hope for World Hepatitis Day is just to get rid of some of the misinformation that people have for the forms of the disease. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hepatitis A and B are curable, but they allow Hepatitis C in easier if it is not treated early enough,â&#x20AC;? Dalton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to

You can be inoculated against A and B. For people who do test positive for Hep C, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important that they get a second test.â&#x20AC;? Dalton explained that the first test looks for antibodies trying to resist the disease, while the second test actually looks for the presence of the virus. Because 20 per cent of people can clear the virus naturally, the presence of antibodies doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily mean that the virus is

The new name of the royal baby may knock the City of Prince George off the top of a Google search, but the mayor isn’t complaining. Shari Green says there’s no other place with more to celebrate in the naming of Britain’s new prince than her central B.C. city. Green says civic officials are already planning to invite Prince William, Kate and the baby for February 2015, when the city hosts the Canada Winter Games. She says they’re also planning a tourism campaign around the baby’s name and will be letting those in the United Kingdom know about the other Prince George. Green says they’re gathering a gift basket for the baby that will have a number of mementoes from the city. The city was named after Prince George III and dates back to 1760.

Come to a place over the rainbow and see if the Great Wizard will grant you your greatest wish. Kimberley Summer Theatre is bringing the most well-known musical film of all time to McKim Theatre for kids big and small. “It’s about Dorothy Gale who lives in Kansas. She dreams of a world beyond what she knows and what she has grown up with – she dreams of being over the rainbow. She gets caught in a twister and it’s about her adventures through meeting the Tin Man, the Lion and the Scarecrow and how she figures out herself through them,” said Fiona McIntyre, who will play Dorothy. Director Truus Verkley talks about the excitement in bringing a classic to Kimberley. “This is the first time I’ve directed a show that everybody knows, that’s iconic, and so it’s been interesting working with that and still trying to put my own creative spin on it,” Verkley said. “But it has been a lot of fun because everybody knows those characters. It is fun to work with those stereotypes and to try to get the actors to really embrace them.” For Fiona McIntyre, being a part of the production has been a lifelong dream come true. “The Wizard of Oz was the first show I ever saw; I saw it when I was maybe four years old. It’s been really cool to get to play Dorothy and to live out that dream that I had when I was four when I saw that girl on stage and thought, ‘I want to do that’,” McIntyre said. “Last summer I was a top 20 finalist for “Over the Rainbow” on CBC so

The Kimberley Trails Society is inviting qualified persons to submit expressions of interest for the following project:

Bottom row: Lucy Collingwood (Stage Manager), Thia Sterling (Wicked Witch), Christina Kim (Musical Director), Fiona McIntyre (Dorothy), Tippy the dog (Toto). I got to go to Toronto and Barbados to audition for that. I sang “Over the Rainbow” about 150 times, so it’s really nice to get to do it within a play.” Now Kimberley Summer Theatre is taking on a true classic, unlike the farces and musicals that the group has done in the past. “Everyone knows it and so we are trying to stick with the original,” said director Verkley. “We’re staying pretty true but we have some added cool elements. There are a couple of elements that were cut from the movie that are still in the original play.” The actors and actresses, the stage hands and the creative team

are all working together to bring the whimsical production to life. Together the group is working to re-kindle the passion for live theatre after last summer when Kimberley Summer Theatre took a hiatus. “On the first day of rehearsals I said this to the actors: ‘My goal as a director is always to make the audience have a great time watching the show” said Verkley. “That’s one of the things that I really want to accomplish with ‘The Wizard of Oz’. Because everyone knows the story and because everyone loves the story, they come away from the live production with even more joy in their hearts than they would

from just watching the movie,” said Verkley. “I think if we can make it so that, even if kids don’t come away saying, ‘I want to perform’, if they come away inspired to do something new or try a sport or join a club or something to step out of their comfort zone a little bit, that’s my goal,” said McIntyre. But putting together the play won’t be a leisurely stroll down the yellow brick road. For one, Toto the dog is played by a real pup – Tippy. “He is quite a friendly little guy. I have known him for a couple of summers now,” Verkley said. Tippy has been

A new focus, a new vision I


n response to an interesting, thought-provoking article in last week’s Daily Townsman in which Councillor Davis talked about the empty downtown buildings, I would like to share a vision for Cranbrook development. The councillor called on us to think about what needs to be done to revitalize Cranbrook, to find a new focus that would attract development and revenues and somehow begin to fill up so many of our empty buildings downtown. Here is my response: This city has a college, yet it is never really acknowledged as a college town. Mentioning the college seems of secondary or tertiary importance as if its existence is a perk or a spinoff to other things. Colleges are revenue generators for cities. Colleges can be big business. A college is an industry in and of itself with multiple benefits to a city. But first, let me say I am speaking only from my perspective as a citizen of Cranbrook. I am by no means whatsoever speaking on behalf of the local college. A college town is a concept. Focus goes on promoting the fact we have an excellent college first and, in the case of Cranbrook, first above tourism and our other regional industries. A college town builds its own character and becomes a destination. It attracts students, yes, but it also attracts faculty, support staff, and even broader, it leads to economic development of stores, restaurants, gas stations, transportation, housing, and arts and culture. College towns create welcoming communities interested in diversity. And they create a very unique, marketable identify for a city. Here are just some of the perceived benefits of developing a city like Cranbrook into a college town. As you read, I

am sure you will think of many others. • Economic development: job development at the college and city-wide; increased revenues through sales (shoppers) and property taxes; development of businesses that address the needs of new residents. Shopping, recreation and the delivery of goods and services are more likely to remain in Cranbrook as it grows and diversifies into a newly-visioned regional hub. • Real estate spin-offs: housing becomes a growth industry as students, faculty and those working in services or business move into the city, drawn by the focal college. Families also come to access higher education and/or families grow as new residents arrive. Rental and sales property have great potential. As student enrolment grows, so does the need for rental accommodation. Since most students will remain in Cranbrook for the duration of their studies, they will rent rather than buy. This opens a huge potential for the development of student-friendly housing. • A retirement destination: There is evidence that college towns attract retirees, in part because of access to the many goods and services that develop as the result of the college hub (including medical and recreational services). Additionally, seniors can avail themselves of free courses and other services at the college. • Arts and entertainment: As population grows in response to the growth of the college, the demand for arts and entertainment grows with it. And as the population diversifies, the range of offerings will grow to meet the demand. A larger support and demand develops for symphony, museums and galleries. This provides business and employment opportunities as it enhances the local arts scene, its fund-raising opportunities and so on. This growth be-

comes a revenue producer for non-profit organizations, businesses and tourism. • Sports: not only do colleges have dynamic, competitive sports programs that draw tournaments (and therefore spinoff revenue to the city), but as the population grows, there will be more demand for access to sporting activities and events. This becomes a revenue producer for non-profit sports organizations, businesses and tourism. • Cafe culture: College towns have a certain je ne sais quoi. They develop an identity, a character of their own and this is often seen in their arts, but they also tend to develop a cafe culture. Much like in Europe, economic and socio-cultural growth occurs where there are public places to sit and chat with friends. • Students and interns: Efforts to recruit students and interns become part and parcel of an on-going, progressive partnership with the college, itself. In this case, imagine a similar campaign to promotional material put out by the Chamber of Commerce designed to recruit business and residents, but targeted at students! College towns do not have to grow to a size that is unwieldy. There are many such towns across the USA and Britain that can attest to this. They can remain of moderate size and the citizens of Cranbrook need not fear that they would suddenly be overwhelmed by an influx of people. This kind of re-envisioning/refocusing of the College as a primary industry that generates growth and revenue (not a spinoff of other industry in Cranbrook) and from which all citizens would benefit would take time to develop. But, I leave that to the city planners and the college. Melodie Hull is an instructor at the College of the Rockies

More female leaders at premiers’ meeting What’s Up? Maria Babbage Canadian Press

TORONTO — When Canada’s premiers sit down Thursday for their semi-annual summit, they’ll be making history by changing the face of provincial and territorial leadership. For the first time, there will be six women at the meeting in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont., representing about 85 per cent of the country’s population. And at the head of the table will be Kathleen Wynne, who was sworn in as Ontario’s first woman premier just six months ago. It’s more than a photo op for the history books, she said. “I was just talking to a grandmother who was saying her granddaughter wants to be the prime minister,’’ Wynne said in an interview. “The fact is that it’s very important that people see themselves represented and that 50 per cent of the population is sitting at the table, better represented. It’s a very good thing.’’ It matters because it signals to the public that women are capable of holding high public office on equal footing with men, said Jane Arscott, a professor at Athabasca University who writes about women in politics. “We haven’t seen that before,’’ she said. “It will shift in our minds our sensibility about who can lead and how they will do it.’’ But the appearance of gender equality can be deceiving, experts say. Even though six provinces and territories are led by women, female representation hasn’t im-


When Canada’s premiers including B.C.’s Christy Clark, sit down Thursday for their semi-annual summit, they’ll be making history by changing the face of provincial and territorial leadership. proved in the legislatures, said Christine de Clercy, a politics professor at the University of Western Ontario. In fact, studies suggest that the gains made over the last 30 years have pretty much stopped, she said. The number of women in legislatures across Canada has reached a glass ceiling, she said. “This might be a little bit of a historical hiccup we have: an unusual set of circumstances where we have lots of women premiers, but this is not some new harbinger

of a better, more equal political environment,’’ she said. “In fact, it’s just a quirk, and it might lead people to overestimate representation of women which ... in Canada, compared to many other countries, is still relatively poor.’’ Will this surge in female leadership change the dynamics among premiers? For Alberta Premier Alison Redford, it’s more about the new faces than the female ones. “I’m pretty excited about the Council of the Federation, not because we have so many new women leaders, but because we have so many new leaders,’’ she said. Some, like British Columbia Premier Christy Clark, have been given a new mandate to govern by winning a general election, Redford said. “I think there’s going to be incredible dynamism because we have passionate leaders around the table that have exciting visions for the future,’’ she said. There may be more women, but there are other groups absent from the premiers’ table, said De Clercy. Many pockets of society — including ethnic groups, aboriginal people and the disabled — are “hideously’’ under-represented in our political system. “It’s totally great that we have Premier Christy Clark, Premier Allison Redford, Premier Kathleen Wynne,’’ she said. “But when you think about it, these are the premiers of three of the most diverse provinces in the federation. And they’re still from ... broadly Anglo-American, white, middle-class backgrounds.’’

Summer Reading Challenge

Let’s join the circus for a week


t was a rough start this week. I found it hard to pick up a new book after finishing “Life After Life” last week. It felt disrespectful to just put the book down, move on and forget the characters. Those characters were still with me, and since the book I read this week, “Water For Elephants”, is set in the same time period, I kept expecting Ursula Todd to pop into the story. Alas, she never did, and the characters in “Water For Elephants” just didn’t have the same pull for me as Ursula did. *** Oh, I really do love a happy ending. A lot can be forgiven in a book if you just give me a nice happy ending to top it off, all loose ends tied into a neat little bow. I will happily suspend all sense of logic if it means I can buy into that positive resolution. The ending was the best part of “Water For Elephants”. That’s not to say that it isn’t a well written novel. But honestly, there were times where it was so hard to read that I almost put the book down. I’m glad that I kept going, because it was a great story and if I had put it down at those points, I probably wouldn’t have

sally macdonald

picked it up again. “Water For Elephants” is the story of Jacob Jankowski, set in 1931. Just days away from finishing a veterinarian’s degree at Cornell University, Jacob gets devastating news: his parents have been killed in a motor vehicle accident. An only child, he learns his parents were deep in debt, and he has nothing. Desperate and awash in grief, Jacob jumps a train, not realizing he has inadvertently joined the Benzini Brothers Greatest Show on Earth. It’s the kind of circus that doesn’t exist any longer, complete with “freaks” such as a bearded lady and “strong woman”, and a full menagerie of zebras, giraffes, lions, chimpanzees and even – significant later in the story – an elephant. Jacob’s experience in the circus takes one unexpected

turn after the other, with various wild and unbelievable events augmenting the story. (Interestingly, in an author’s note, the writer says she picked up many of the crazy circus stories from real-life accounts of early-20th-century circuses.) Once you strip away the wild circus veneer, this story has a fairytale quality, with a hero, a villain (or two), and a damsel in distress. “Water For Elephants” is the third novel by Vancouver author Sara Gruen. Initially rejected by her publisher, Gruen later found a new publisher and “Water For Elephants” went on to spend 12 weeks on

the New York Times bestseller list in 2006. I’ve read a later novel by Sara Gruen as well: “Ape House”. I can see many similarities between the two: both feature humans with a special connection to animals, and in both novels it is the animals that are the true moral compass for the antagonists. “Water For Elephants” is a captivating story and it moves along at a cracking pace, keeping you engaged through every twist and turn. But I just couldn’t connect to the human characters as much as I felt I was expected to. At times when I should have been concerned for one of the characters, I found myself thinking, “Who cares? What about the elephant?!” I have also come to realize that I don’t like it when a writer starts a novel with an epilogue covering the events at the climax of the novel. I understand that this is a technique to capture your attention and start building suspense immediately. But I would really rather the story just progressed to that point in its own time.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick breaks silence on former TE Aaron Hernandez FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick broke his silence Wednesday four weeks after former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was charged with murder. Belichick says the Patriots will learn from “this terrible experience,” and that it’s time for New England to “move forward.” Team owner Robert Kraft has said he was “duped” by Hernandez. Tom Brady and the team’s other five captains are scheduled to speak with reporters on Thursday when training camp opens. The first practice is set for Friday. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty after being arrested and charged on June 26 in the shooting death of Boston semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd on June 17. Lloyd’s body was found in an industrial park near the North Attleborough home of Hernandez. “We’ll continue to evaluate the way that we do things, the way that we evaluate our players and we’ll do it on a regular basis,” Belichick said. “I’m not perfect on that, but I always do what I think is best for the football team.” Associated Press

Referee Kim Eaton responds to an offside call from his linesman against Nate Hickerson, who scored Kinsmen’s first goal against the Sullivan Pub. Though Hickerson’s goal was recalled, Kinsmen went on to defeat Sullivan Pub 4-0 for a berth in the league final.

Teams set for soccer league final TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The East Kootenay Soccer League has a final set up, following the conclusion of the second semifinal on Wednesday night at the Mount Baker field. Cranbro ok-bas e d Kinsmen and Kimberley’s Sullivan Pub clashed for the second berth into the final, with the redshirts coming out on top with a 4-0 win.

goals to lead the Kinsmen squad to victory. Kimberley put up a good fight in the first half, and had the edge in terms of possession and generating quality chances, however, the Kinsmen squad was able to capitalize on a few mistakes in the second half, and found the back of the net four times. In fact, Kinsmen scored six goals in total, however, two of them were whistled offside. The Sullivan Pub started strong and forced the attack against Kinsmen, generating some quality chances that were deftly turned away by Kinsmen keeper Gary Elliot. A dangerous cross into Kinsmen’s 18-yard box was volleyed in midair towards the net, which Elliot punched away—right to the head of another Sully player, who pitched it right back towards the goal.

However, Elliot made the catch and moved the ball upfield. At the other end of the pitch, Walmsley nearly got his first at the top of the 18-yard box, sending a shot just wide of the left post with a left-foot shot. It looked like Nate Hickerson had scored the game’s first goal, beating goaltender Rob Balcom, however, the play was whistled offside. Scoreless after the first half, the two teams regrouped. Kinsmen only had one sub, while Sully Pub was able to get three or four fresh legs on the field at any given time. Kinsmen pulled it together a bit more in the second half, yet still struggled on their possession play. They nearly struck gold on a header that went off the crossbar, but it was Walmsley who broke the deadlock later on.

Kinsmen took a free kick, which sailed over the Sully Pub defence, and Walmsley and Balcom engaged in a footrace for the loose ball. Walmsley barely got to it first, and tapped it by Balcom into the net as the two collided. Not much later, Chris Franklin doubled the lead when he went down in a scramble in front of the net and poked a shot past the goal line. Sullivan Pub tried to stay strong in the face of a two-goal deficit, but then disaster struck. Joey Brons picked the pocket of a Sully defender and went in uncontested on Balcom, firing a easy shot into the corner for a three-goal Kinsmen lead. Walmsley nearly got his second of the game, scoring off a throw in that made a deflection into the six-yard box, however, he was whis-

tled offside. Sully Pub organized a successful attack up the field, breaking through the Kinsmen defence, however, the shot went wide of Elliot and the goalpost. Walmsley potted his second of the night near the end of the game to seal up the scoring for Kinsmen. Earlier on Tuesday, Mister Tire and Players Bench duked it out in the first semi final of the playoffs. Mister Tire, the first place seed going up against the fourth place Players Bench, drew first blood, however, with two minutes remaining, it turned into a tie game. Overtime solved nothing, and the game was decided in penalty kicks. Mister Tire and Kinsmen will go headto-head for the league final at 7 p.m. on Friday at the Mount Baker soccer field.

Dodgers beat Blue Jays 8-3 in 10 innings Ian Harrison Associated Press

TORONTO - Mark Ellis hit a two-run homer to highlight Los Angeles’ five-run 10th inning as the Dodgers beat the Toronto Blue Jays 8-3 on Wednesday night to complete a three-game sweep. Yasiel Puig also went deep in the 10th for the streaking Dodgers, who have won six straight and 23 of 28 to go from last in the NL West on June 21 to first place. Los Angeles won its 10th straight road game, the franchise’s longest streak since the Brooklyn Dodgers won their first 11 away from home in 1955. Brandon League (5-3) pitched two innings to beat his former team for the second straight game and Kenley Jansen finished for the Dodgers. Juan Perez (1-2) gave up all five runs and four hits in the 10th inning for Toronto. The Blue Jays were swept for the second straight series, and have

lost a season-high seven consecutive games and 14 of 18. Toronto led 3-2 heading into the ninth before the Dodgers rallied against closer Casey Janssen. Puig drew a leadoff walk before Janssen struck out Adrian Gonzalez and Hanley Ramirez, then got two strikes on Andre Ethier. When Ethier hit a sinking liner to centre, Colby Rasmus charged the ball but couldn’t catch it, then had it bounce off his glove, allowing Puig to score. The blown save was Janssen’s second in 20 opportunities. In the 10th, Juan Uribe drew a one-out walk and Ellis homered into the second deck in left, his fifth. One out later, Puig hit his ninth homer. Gonzalez walked, Ramirez doubled and Ethier followed with a two-run double. Ethier went 4 for 5 with two RBIs and Puig was 3 for 5 with a walk and two RBIs. The Blue Jays broke

a 2-2 tie in the eighth against Ronald Belisario when pinch runner Rajai Davis scored from second on a throwing error by Gonzalez. Los Angeles opened the scoring on Uribe’s bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the second, and Puig made it 2-0 with an RBI double in the third. Dodgers starter Ricky Nolasco held the Blue Jays without a hit until the bottom of the fifth, when Rasmus and Maicer Izturis drew consecutive walks and Brett Lawrie drove them in with a two-out double off the wall. Making his fourth start since being ac-

OAKVILLE, Ont. Mike Weir said his play at last year’s Canadian Open was awful. A lot has changed since then. The 43-year-old Brights Grove, Ont., native returned to Glen Abbey Golf Club on Wednesday for the 2013 Canadian Open with a new approach to his game and a renewed confidence after last year’s disappointing finish. Weir shot 72 in each of the first two rounds in 2012, missing the cut by five strokes. “The confidence level and the way I’m playing from a year ago is a big change,” said Weir. “I feel confident when I tee it up on Thursday every week now. It’s not quite where I want it to be, but I could say that about weeks that I’ve won before the week started and then things can kind of come together and you end up winning a tournament. “So I’m hoping this

week I feel good about my game and I think if I can get some momentum going early in this tournament and get rolling, I’ll have a good chance.” Weir’s renewed confidence comes from working on his driving at the range, allowing him to relax at the tees and concentrate on his putting. “I have much more confidence with my ball striking and I’m able to spend more time on my short game now,” said Weir. “I spent so much time on my long game that that feels pretty good for the most part now.” Weir’s right to be encouraged after several big strides in his game this year, including a tie for 28th at the U.S. Open in mid-June after a strong fourth round when he shot 1-under par. “I’m not fooling myself. I go out there and I tested like the U.S. Open,” said Weir. “You can’t fool yourself around a place like that.”

dated to July 22, meaning he’s eligible to return Aug. 6, but manager Don Mattingly said Kemp might need more time. NOTES: The game was briefly halted in the fourth after home plate umpire Will Little was hit on the left arm by a pitch from Nolasco. Little remained in the game, but left the field for treatment between the top and bottom of the sixth. ... Blue Jays RHP Brandon Morrow will have more tests on his sore right forearm. Toronto GM Alex Anthopoulos said it’s hard to be optimistic that Morrow will be able to return this season.

British Columbians have embraced wireless digital technology with 96% of hydro rate payers accepting Smart Meters. Smart Meters enable better management of the electricity grid, reduced costs, better law enforcement and opportunities for conservation.


For the 4% who don’t want a wireless digital meter, they now have two optout choices keep their old analog meter until it quits working or take a new digital meter with the radio off. Those without a Smart Meter today must advise BC Hydro by December 1st if they want a new digital meter with radio off.


Those of the 4% who chose one of the opt-outs will be charged the cost of having their meter read manually plus the other costs associated with not taking a Smart Meter. The 96% of British Columbians with a Smart Meter will not be subsidizing those who chose to opt out. More details are available on the BC Hydro web site.

Fans hear from Canucks management at summer summit Monte Ste wart Canadian Press

VANCOUVER - If all goes according to plan, the roof will be open at B.C. Place Stadium in March when the Vancouver Canucks host the Ottawa Senators in the Heritage Classic. “If worse comes to worse and it needs to be a covered facility, it’ll be a covered facility,” NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said Tuesday. “We hope that’s not the case.” Given B.C. Place’s 59,841 seating capacity, Daly said he expects some tickets to be priced lower than usual Canucks games at Rogers Arena, but added that some will also be more expensive. Meanwhile, Daly said the NHL is working with the players’ association and International Ice Hockey Federation to see what can be

done to reduce insurance cost for Olympic teams’ summer orientation camps. Currently, the high cost of insurance is restricting Canadian and U.S. players to off-ice workouts. Daly spoke to reporters before Vancouver Canucks general manager Mike Gillis and new head coach John Tortorella faced questions from fans at the NHL club’s annual summer summit. Among the other topics discussed, Daly said the NHL will give strong consideration to the Pacific Northwest in the event of expansion or relocation, but declined to address Seattle specifically. The city was considered a strong candidate for a potential move of the Phoenix Coyotes, who have resolved their arena-lease issues and are

expected to stay in Arizona once the sale of the club is complete. The league could look into possible expansion or other business growth after the sale closes. “I think there’s a willingness to consider (expansion),” said Daly, who also added he expects the size of goaltenders’ equipment to be reduced this season. Meanwhile, Gillis and Tortorella discussed the Canucks’ plans with fans heading into the 2013-14 season. The club has been eliminated in the first round of the playoffs the last two seasons and has just one post-season victory since losing Game 7 of the 2011 Stanley Cup final to the Boston Bruins. The lack of playoff success cost Alain Vigneault, the franchise’s all-time winnin-

gest coach, his job in May after the Canucks were swept by the San Jose Sharks. Tortorella, fired by the New York Rangers after they were eliminated in the second round by Boston, was hired as Vigneault’s replacement, with the former Canucks coach taking over in the Big Apple. Gillis’ choice of Tortorella as coach has been criticized, along with his handling of Vancouver’s goaltending situation, which resulted in Cory Schneider’s trade to the New Jersey Devils after the Canucks could not move Roberto Luongo and his mammoth contract. Gillis defended his decision to trade Schneider and keep Luongo as the starting goaltender. “We made our choice and our choice was to go with

Roberto,” Gillis told the fan summit. He met with Luongo in Florida recently and said the two had a positive conversation, indicating the goaltender is looking forward to returning to the Canucks after he spent the past year expecting to be dealt. “It wasn’t strained or adversarial at all,” Gillis said. The Vancouver GM has also come under fire for the team’s poor draft record under his watch. Only one Gillis draft choice, Cody Hodgson, now a member of the Buffalo Sabres as a result of a trade, has become a regular NHLer. The Canucks will enter the 2013-14 season having won five straight Northwest Division titles, but Vancouver’s schedule will be more difficult in the new Pacific

Division following NHL realignment. Gillis will also have to contend with a reduced salary cap that drops to $64.2 million from $70.3 million. He and Tortorella said they will give prospects a chance to make the club that has mostly established veterans. “We have to,” said Gillis. “We don’t have a choice.” Notes: Tortorella announced that the Canucks have hired Mike Sullivan and former Dallas Stars coach Glen Gulutzan as assistants. Sullivan spent four years as Tortorella’s assistant with the Rangers. Gulutzan spent the past two seasons at the Stars helm, missing the playoffs both seasons. He was a candidate for the head coaching position that went to Tortorella.

ConstruCtion Questions:

Is that a Lego house? Are you ready to step up and publicly admit that you not only played with Lego as a kid, but still dream about building a real Lego house?

contractor to use foam spray insulation in the attic.

Rafi had that dream and he decided to see it through. He had many discussions with his builder about using ICF (insulating concrete forms) instead of traditional building practices of pouring a concrete basement, stick framing the structure and insulating with bat insulation. ICF are interlocking modular units that are drystacked and then filled with concrete (rebar reinforcement added as you stack), locking together like Lego bricks and forming the structural walls of a building. The step of insulating the walls is gone as the products the modular units are made of provide the insulating factor. With all the ceiling pot lights in his house, a source of significant heat loss, Rafi agreed with his

An avid reader and researcher, Rafi was well aware of the energy efficiency and consequent energy savings of ICF construction over traditional. He also knew the neighbourhood would be real happy with the sound absorption; Rafi and the Rascals would soon have the perfect studio for their all-night Friday jam sessions (he was the drummer). The human “crows” gather every day on the sidewalk to watch the progress of Rafi’s house and nod to each other at how quickly and efficiently his house is built. Four months start to finish and Rafi moves in. In the same neighbourhood, a traditionally built home of comparable size was still under construction and the newly educated “crows” just shook their heads and agreed that none of them would go back to the “old ways”.

Ask Menno

On the practical side, Rafi seldom turns his furnace on over the winter as his gas fireplace in the open concept main floor is enough to keep his home toasty warm (saving even more than he thought). The thick walls also keep the hot days of summer out and create deep window wells, giving the house a comfortable, country feel. Savings have been made on the home insurance premiums, too, as the mainly concrete structure has improved fire rating. When asked what he likes best about his Lego house, Rafi replies “watching it grow block by block” just like I did as a kid.

PROS & CONS of an open floor plan secrets of the kitchen may dislike an open floor plan. Pro: Light can flow effectively through an open space, minimizing dark rooms and reducing the need to install more windows. Light in and of itself can help a home feel more spacious.

Open floor plans have evolved to be the floor plan of choice in new homes and current home renovations. Turn on a home renovation show, and you’re likely to see eager homeowners knocking down walls to open the kitchen to the family room. Walls have become anathema to homeowners.

There are many supporters of the open floor plan, particularly (Based on a true story, those who entertain names changed) frequently or like to keep an eye on chilSubmitted by: dren throughout the house. Although open Menno Dueck, floor plans are touted, Ask Menno there are plenty of Consulting, Dueck people who have Enterprises Inc. never been enamored 250-426-5460 www. with having all of their rooms flowing into one. There also are some people who prefer a different style.


Menno Dueck

For those who are not fans of the open floor plan, blame the excess of the 1980s for their inception. In homes built in the 1960s and 1970s, rooms were

compartmentalized and isolated for specific activities. During the 1980s, an era of “bigger is better,” when entertaining was widely popular among homeowners, designers noticed that many homeowners preferred an open floor plan in which rooms merged into one another, creating the illusion of more space. These floor plans also enable people to be in separate rooms and still interact with one another across the space. A home’s floor plan largely depends on the preference of the homeowner. There are many advantages to having an open floor plan versus one that is more compartmentalized. Here is a look at some of the pros and cons. Pro: Open floor plans can be safer for parents of young children. If the home opens up with the liv-

ing spaces branching off from the kitchen, parents can keep an eye on children while the parents prepare dinner. It also eliminates the number of places that kids can hide and get into mischief. Con:Privacy is reduced in a home with few walls. Much in the way that an open floor plan enables children to be seen from every angle, it also enables you to be seen -- and all of your belongings as well. There’s also no place to retreat to if you need a minute to collect yourself when entertaining. You’re on display unless you retreat to the bathroom. Pro: Entertaining can be easier in a home with an open floor plan because hosts and hostesses are not separated from their guests or holed up in the kitchen the entire time. An open space enables everyone to mingle and conversations to flow. Con: Those who like to host events without showing guests all of their dirty dishes or

Pro:Open floor plans allow for more family time together in one space than a home with a more compartmentalized layout. Con: People who are collectors or who have a lot of furniture or accent items may find that open floor plans do not work well with this type of design mantra. Pro: Because several rooms run into one another, color choices for walls and furnishings in a home with an open floor plan can be limited and cohesive, making choices easier. Con: On the flip side, those who want to incorporate different color schemes and eclectic styles may have difficulty deciding on where to “end” rooms or how to comingle furniture.

Con: While light can flow easily, so can sound. Noises through the house may be amplified. A student doing homework in the dining room may be disturbed by the television blaring in the family room. Talking on the phone or even finding a quiet nook to read a book may be challenging.

Exploring the last frontier in Alaska

Carla Nelson of Maritime Travel explains why a cruise is the best way to see this beautiful state


ou’ve heard it. The Last Frontier. The Great Land. On the bucket list. Must visit before I die. Yes, it’s Alaska! And in the bigger picture, it’s pretty darn close to us, so what are you waiting for? And since I’m a ‘Master Cruise Counsellor’, I am going to tell you one of the easiest and best ways to get a taste of this wonderful area of the world is on an Alaskan cruise. Alaska cruise season goes from May until September, with many cruise lines departing from Vancouver and Seattle. In my opinion, Princess Cruises and Holland America Line do it best for the price. This is also a perfect cruise for a first-time cruiser to see if you like ocean cruising – not too far to go and not too expensive. There are two main itineraries for cruising

in Alaska. A seven-day round-trip Inside Passage cruise will show you the panhandle of Alaska and some of the most spectacular scenery, especially in the Lynn Canal. As you cruise into Skagway, you almost feel like you are touching both sides of the canal. These Inside Passage cruises also visit the glaciers, either in Glacier Bay, Hubbard Glacier or Tracy Arm and Sawyer Glacier. It is spectacular to watch and listen to the glaciers calve from the deck of your cruise ship. You do get up-close and personal. Sometimes the crew will lower a lifeboat and go fetch a chunk of glacial ice floating in the bay and bring it back to the ship, where later the bar staff will happily chip off a large cube for your cocktail! On the way, you may visit the city of Juneau, the fishing village of Ket-


An enormous cruise ship is dwarfed by majestic glaciers and mountains in Alaska’s Glacier Bay. chikan, the Russian village of Sitka, and Icy Strait Point for whale watching. The second itinerary is a one-way voyage,

seven days northbound or southbound, which can be combined with a land tour. You cruise from Vancouver or Seattle to Anchorage, techni-

cally the port of Anchorage, which is in Seward. This cruise takes in the entire Gulf of Alaska up to the mainland, with more glaciers along the

way. You can then transfer to the Alaska Railroad for a very scenic trip to Anchorage and fly home. Or continue on a

land tour. Now you are really in the Great Land! Anchorage is the gateway to Alaska’s top wilderness attractions – Denali National Park and Mount McKinley, Fairbanks, Kenai Peninsula, Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and the remote Prudhoe Bay. So there you have it: a great destination and experience, and close to home! I lived in the Yukon for many years as well as here in the B.C. Rockies, so I did not think I would be easily impressed by an Alaskan cruise. But I was! The scenery was spectacular, the wildlife viewing incredible, my fishing expedition in Ketchikan was bountiful, and the luxury of a cruise ship isn’t bad either!

Royal baby named George Alexander Louis Canadian Press

LONDON — His Royal Highness has a name. The new prince has been named George Alexander Louis, royal officials said Wednesday, ending speculation over what moniker Prince William and his wife, Kate, would pick for their first child. Kensington Palace said royals are “delighted to announce’’ their son’s name, adding that the 2-day-old baby and third-in-line to the throne will be known as “His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.’’ Noble names are steeped in history, which

explains why thousands of bets rolled in to British bookmakers for the name George, the name of six previous British kings. The moniker evokes the steadfastness of the Queen’s father, George VI, who rallied the nation during the Second World War. Meaning farmer or earth worker, George was the 12th most popular name for boys born in England and Wales in 2011. St. George, a 4th-century Christian martyr, is the patron saint of England. The name Louis could be a tribute to Lord Louis Mountbatten, the Duke of Edinburgh’s uncle and the

last British Viceroy of India before independence in 1947. William’s father, Prince Charles, was close with Mountbatten, who was assassinated by the Irish Republican Army in 1979. The announcement from Prince William and Kate — just two days after the baby’s birth — was quick, by royal standards. The Queen and the

Duke of Edinburgh took a month before settling on the name Charles for the Prince of Wales. Diana, Princess of Wales, and Prince Charles took a week before settling on William’s four names. For now, the littlest royal is expected to stay out of the spotlight after making his first “public appearance’’ in the arms of his parents outside of London’s St. Mary’s Hos-

The U.N. General Assembly has designated November 19 as World Toilet Day to spotlight the plight of 2.5 billion people who don’t have basic toilets. According to the U.N., six billion of the world’s seven billion people have mobile phones — but only 4.5 billion have access to toilets or latrines. The General Assembly resolution approved by consensus Wednes-

day urges the U.N.’s 193 member states to promote behavioural changes and adopt policies to increase access to sanitation and end open defecation, a key cause of diarrhea. U.N. Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson said the annual observance of World Toilet Day “will go a long way toward raising awareness about the need for all human beings to have access to sanitation.’’

After leaving the hospital, William and Kate introduced their son Wednesday to his great-grandmother, the Queen, who was keen to see the baby before she starts her annual summer vacation in Scotland later this week.

It’s as if you have a rabbit’s foot tucked away in your back pocket. You will benefit from any activity involving this person. Profound changes are being made. Tonight: Try to make it early. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You might have difficulty verbalizing a vision involving a

project. Even if someone says that he or she understands, that might not be the case. Defer to others, yet stay on top of communication. Ask a question, even if it makes you feel stupid. Tonight: At a favorite haunt. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Be aware of what you are doing with your checkbook. The damages could be far greater than you had anticipated. Know when to say “no.” At this point, you are capable of pulling white rabbits out of black hats. Tonight: Indulge a friend or loved one; it does not have to cost. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You are right where you need to be, and others find you with ease. Many friends will express a great deal of respect for you and your thoughts. Follow your intuition, especially regarding a matter at a distance. Your personality melts boundaries. Tonight: You can have it all.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I am a woman and am deeply attracted to a good friend, also female. We have begun watching a racy TV show together at my home, and it’s becoming very uncomfortable for me to watch it with her. I find myself wondering whether I should instead offer to loan her the DVDs so she can watch them on her own. If so, do I need to explain why? She has told me over the course of our friendship that she is eschewing romantic relationships until she is in a healthier frame of mind, which I support, and that she plans to move in six months or so. I have a young son and am not interested in a temporary entanglement. I do not want to alienate my friend and am wondering what course of action is least likely to put a crimp in our friendship. -- Crushing Dear Crushing: Is it possible that your friend is interested in you romantically? If you think that might be the case, you should tell her that you are attracted to her and see what happens. However, if that is too emotionally frightening and you fear it will end the friendship, you need to stop these incendiary “dates” in whatever way removes the intimacy from your get-togethers. Offer her the DVDs and say that you are tired of watching this show. You could suggest an alternate TV program that is less racy or invite more people over so it’s not only the two of you. You could meet at a local coffee shop or restaurant to chat. You do not have to bare your soul to her if it makes you uncomfortable, but it means you must stop putting yourself in this compromising position. Dear Annie: My father recently informed me of some dark family history that happened years ago. I already felt disconnected from his side of the family, but now I feel ashamed to be a part of these secrets and dishonorable behavior. I am considering changing my surname. I suspect my father will be angry that I’m giving up the family name, and I realize that my name doesn’t necessarily reflect on me, but going through life connected to those bad things seems like a worse option. What do you think? -- Shady Family Business Dear Shady: Unless your family name is particularly recognizable, it is unlikely that anyone will connect you to these dark deeds. However, if you wish to change your name as a protest against your father’s family, that is up to you. But be prepared for his reaction and willing to face the consequences. Dear Annie: “Doing It Myself” asked for advice about his mother, who has dementia. She wanted to stay in her home. I am a retired Adult Protective Services social worker whose job was to investigate adult abuse, neglect and exploitation. I cannot tell you how many times I investigated a report in the home and knew as soon as I saw the caregiver that the person had a history of violence. I have told my children that I want to remain in my own home only if I can recognize it as my own and the information I give them is reliable. (Dementia patients often report thievery or abuse when it does not exist.) Otherwise, I want to be in a nursing home. There is a much greater chance that abuse or neglect will be witnessed in a nursing facility. When the patient’s family hires a caregiver, it is important that they go through a licensed reliable service that screens their employees. They should never look through the classified ads for an individual to care for a loved one. -- Been There Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

In Memoriam


In Memoriam In Loving Memory of

Neil Saunders

Jan. 24, 1944 - July 27, 2009 It has been four years since you left us. We miss and think of you every day. You are in our hearts and never forgotten. Forever remembered, missed and loved. Mary, Stephanie, Rick and Shayla

If tears could wash away our pain, We would not feel such hurt again, The heartbreak felt since you’ve been gone, We wouldn’t wish on anyone, But today is your birthday, So we’ll have to be brave And accept God’s taken what first He gave.

Happy Birthday to our special Angel, Jacey. Love Uncle Jamie, Auntie Marnette, Devin, Braden, Ethan, Sheldon & Clayton.

It is with heavy hearts we announce that Gord passed away peacefully on Friday, July 19th with his family by his side. Gordy will be deeply missed and forever loved by so many but most of all by his best friend and wife Barb, his kids Chris, Laura (Daryl) and Tara (Derek), his mother Mae, and his grandkids Brodyn, Josh, Teagan, Gabrielle, Ryker, Kinley and Logan. Gord worked for many years as a firefighter with the Cranbrook Fire Department doing something he truly loved and was proud to be a part of. Sports were always a huge part of Gord’s life and he spent numerous hours both coaching and playing. Some of his favourite times were spent up the Bull, sitting on the beach in Mazatlan, cooking, guiding, trapping and golfing. Rats saw beauty where many overlooked, he enjoyed the simple things in life. Spending time at the Lake with his family, having a cold beer with good friends and driving countless miles to beautiful places with the one he loved. We would like to thank the hospital staff and send out a very special thanks to Dr. Bob O’Brien, Dr. Karen Pont and nurses Debbie and Trish for their overwhelming compassion and caring. To all our wonderful friends and family we appreciate your support and understanding for allowing just the family to have our little but precious time with him over the last few weeks. At the request of Gord, no service will be held. Rats has touched so many people over the years and we would like to invite those that were blessed enough to have this pleasure to an informal open house between 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm on Saturday, August 10th at Norbury (Garbutts) Lake. Come share the memories you have and laughter with the ones he loved. The family asks that in lieu of flowers that a donation be made to STARS in Gord’s name at under memorial donations. Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service. Condolences for the family can be offered at:

nee MITCHELL, GLENNIS MARY MARGARET ‘GRANNY’ January 2, 1930, MICHEL, BC July 19, 2013, CRANBROOK, BC Survived by husband Warren of 57 years, next month would be 58. Children Lorne (Nancy) - Barrie, ON, Earle - Kelowna, BC, Dawn (Tony) - Calgary, AB, Robyn (Frank) - Cranbrook, BC, Aaron - Westbank, BC. 15 Grandchildren & 15 Great-Grandchildren. Predeceased by parents Joe & Eva Mitchell. Siblings, Nellie, Irene, Alice, Sonny, Irvin, Frank and Elsie. Celebration of life to take place Saturday, July 27 from 3:00-5:00 pm, Senior Citizens Hall, 125 - 17 Ave. S., Cranbrook, BC. GYURKOVITS, CORNELIA WILHELMINA “CORRIE” NOV 3, 1927 – JULY 18, 2013 It is with sadness, that the family of Corrie announces her passing to be with the love of her life, Leslie, one day before what would have been their 68th wedding anniversary. Born and raised in Amsterdam, Netherlands, Corrie met Les while he was serving with the Canadian Seaforth Highlanders. They married on July 19, 1945 after a six week romance. As a young war bride Corrie moved to Canada in early 1946 and settled into a three room home beside the Moyie River in Yahk to start her new life and family. In 1949 Les started working for CM&S and the family moved to Kimberley. Les and Corrie continued to raise their family in Kimberley which grew to five boys and a daughter. Corrie took an active role in the Boy Scout movement for a number of years and in her spare time enjoyed her needle work and playing bingo. With Les’ passing in 1974 she was briefly employed by Delamont Jewellers in Kimberley. In the mid 80’s Corrie moved to Cranbrook to be closer to family and lived independently, continuing to enjoy her crocheting and cross stitch, leaving many legacy pieces for her children and grandchildren. With declining health, Corrie moved to Joseph Creek Village in July 2010. The family would like to thank all the staff at Joseph Creek for their kindness and care while she resided there. It was greatly appreciated by her family. Corrie leaves to mourn her passing her five sons and daughter: Bill and Jolene (Castlegar), John and Linda (Cranbrook), Bob and Rhonda (Wasa), Sue (Merritt), Richard and Phil (Brighton, England), Donald and Elizabeth (Vancouver), eleven grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren and three great-great grandchildren. She also leaves her sister and brother-in-law, Rie and Joop and many nieces and nephews in Holland. She was predeceased by her husband, Les and son-in-law Wilf Simon. There will be no service by her request. A family gathering will be held in early August for the internment with Les at the Kimberley Cemetery. Arrangements made through Mark Memorial.

Ten Reasons to Advertise on a Newspaper Website 1. Frequency: The online newspaper Web site user accesses the Internet almost twice as much as the general user. 2. Credibility: The credibility of the newspaper brand

extends to the advertiser. Fifty-nine percent of Web users agree that online advertising is more believable from a trusted Web site. Online, newspaper Web sites are the dominant local media site in most markets.

3. Targeted: If you want to focus on a particular backyard, advertising in an online newspaper is more personal, and more relevant because it is local. Newspapers also publish a plethora of niche sites (youth, women, movie fans, seniors, are illustrative) for virtually any demographic advertisers could possibly hope to reach. 4. Purchasing power: Sixty-two percent of newspaper

Web site users purchase online compared with 49 percent of general users. Thirty-nine percent of online newspaper users have incomes higher than $75,000; 65 percent own their homes. Fifty percent of online newspaper users have spent more than $500 online in the last six months, and 63 percent of online newspaper users prefer to find out about new products through the Internet.

content is news, sports, financial information, entertainment news, and shopping â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in that order. Sixtytwo percent of Internet users visit online newspapers for local news, compared with 39 percent for the local TV station Web site and 23 percent for the local radio station site. Not even Yahoo! or AOLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Digital City can top this.

6. Retailers prefer newspaper sites: Sixty-five percent of retailers report that newspaper sites are efficient in assisting them in meeting marketing needs compared with other sites.

7. High profile: reports that, among top executives (CEO, CIO, CFO or owner/partner), Internet advertising ranked above over all other media measured for: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where I prefer to find our about new products,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where I prefer to receive information about companies,â&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where modern, up-to-date brands advertise.â&#x20AC;? At the same time, these early adopters of technology also skew younger than the traditional newspaper audience. Forty percent of online newspaper users are aged 18-35. 8. Reinforcement: Seventy-six percent of online newspaper users also read the newspaper in the past seven days, and repetition increases awareness. The Internet Advertising Bureau found that, by increasing the number of online banners from one to two per week, branding results on three key metrics increased 42 percent making online a great, inexpensive way to increase the branding lift of traditional campaigns. 9. Quality: Seventy-five percent of advertisers generally said newspaper Web sitesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; advertising was as good or better than other Internet sites.

10. Mix: A variety of recent studies have demonstrated the power of online, when included in a mix with traditional media, to elaborate the brand message. Newspaper print and online products combined have the highest penetration and most desirable audience of any other local medium. SOURCE: Newspaper Association of America
