Energy diet kicks off in East Kootenay ARNE PETRYSHEN Townsman Staff

The Community Energy Association officially kicked off the East Kootenay Energy Diet on Friday in Cranbrook. Bill Bennett, Minister of Energy and Mines, was joined by Mayor Wayne Stetski and representatives from the Regional District of East Kootenay, FortisBC,


Hiker Rick Long rejoices after reaching the 6,800-foot summit of Gray Creek Pass, a vital backcountry route between Kimberley and Crawford Bay. The pass opened at the beginning of the month, after a limited season in 2012.

Gray Creek Pass backroad open to wheeled and foot traffic The popular route across the Purcells is expecting a busy season after being closed last summer SALLY MACDONALD Townsman Staff

During a season where many back roads have been closed because of flood damage, one popular route is open and in surprisingly good condition: Gray Creek Pass.

The popular route links the East and West Kootenay from Kimberley to Crawford Bay, 90 kilometres of gravel road over the scenic Gray Creek Pass. Tom Lymbery, the owner of Gray Creek Store and coordinator of the Kootenay Lake Chamber of Commerce, says

on busy weekends 200 vehicles will come over the pass. “We rate this as a tourism resource road because it’s so interesting,” Lymbery said.

Local firefighter supports kids at burn camp SALLY MACDONALD Townsman Staff

Cranbrook firefighter Murray Robertson has returned to town after what he calls an amazing experience at Burn Camp 2013, from July 14 to 19. The B.C. Professional Firefighters’ Burn Fund puts on a camp each year for children aged between six and 18 who are burn survivors. This past year, Cranbrook contributed to the cause by supporting the Cranbrook Firefighters’ Burn Fund Calendar, in

collaboration with Rocky Mountain Print Solutions and the Cranbrook Daily Townsman. This is the third time Robertson has attended Burn Camp as a counsellor, and it was again a powerful experience. “This year 72 kids from across British Columbia were brought in to Camp Latona on Gambier Island. This year in my cabin we had eight boys aged from 6 to 10,” Robertson said.

Kinbari Sushi open once more The only sushi restaurant in Kimberley is back with a new owner and new chefs who will be serving up fresh authentic Japanese cuisine K ait y Brown Townsman Staff

Kinbari Sushi restaurant is back in business, bringing Kimberley a taste of Japan with quality sashimi and sushi, noodle dishes and traditional flavours. New owner Sooseok Kang, nicknamed Soo, is passionate about smalltown Kimberley and knew that it was the perfect place for him to share good food with good neighbours. “I love Kimberley’s nature; it’s a beautiful place. Fresh air. Nice place and nice people,” said Soo. Soo never sends people home hungry and you’ll be in love at first bite. His foods are fresh and crisp with a perfect balance of flavours and beautiful presentation to match. There is something for everyone at Kinbari – even those who aren’t fish fans. And Soo is always sure to go the extra mile – he even has gluten-free soy sauce available. Soo said he loves the small-town feeling of Kimberley and that he is passionate about making friends within the community. After hitting a bit of a rough patch, the beloved sushi place is back in business. The Kinbari

Soo said that the biggest challenge, and the reason for them being closed for a while, was that it was difficult to find the right chef. Not only was it important to find someone who was talented and who had honed the

sushi craft, Soo wanted to finding someone who was as much in love with the community of Kimberley as he was and who would be willing to live here. Peter Yoon and Yun Choi are the new chefs at the restaurant and will be serving up the quality dishes. Soo himself took culinary programs at a Korean academic school.

As well, he took some culinary programs in Vancouver and owned a restaurant in Kelowna for eight years. “I think that as the new owner I have a lot of experience in Japanese food and a better knowledge about the food,” said Soo. Soo studied Japanese cuisine and is well versed in the culture despite the fact that he himself is from South Korea. “Because Japan and South Korea are very close together, each country’s food is popular at each other’s country. So there are lots of Japanese academic schools teaching about Japanese food in Korea,

and there are lots of Korean academic schools teaching about Korean food in Japan as well.” Soo is passionate about sharing authentic Japanese cuisine with people in Kimberley. He encourages those who may think they won’t like it to give it a try. “Sushi is actually really good for your health,” said Soo. “I would like to offer the chance for everyone to try these special rolls and sashimi.” Kinbari will be open every night from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. except for Tuesdays and is located in the Platzl across from Black Bear Books and Video.

Rancher convicted in shooting death of cattle-chasing dog C ANADIAN PRESS

KAMLOOPS, B.C. — A B.C. rancher who claimed her neighbour’s dog had been attacking her livestock has been convicted of killing the animal. Ruth Robinson was in tears outside the Kamloops court and expressed her disappointment at the ruling. Robinson, who owns a ranch in Sharpe Lake, in B.C.’s south Cariboo, admitted at her trial that she shot the large dog with a rifle.

She testified that she believed she was justified under the Livestock Act because the 55-kilogram Leonberger dog was chasing her cattle. Provincial court Judge Chris Cleaveley found Robinson guilty of killing or injuring an animal under the Criminal Code. The Crown has called for a jail sentence of up to 90 days, but the judge, who reserved his sentencing decision, indicated he won’t impose a jail term.

Energy diet helps homeowners amp up efficiency Continued from page 1 “The program is set up to help homeowners access energy audits and assessments at a reduced price,” Lohman said. “We’ll also be working with local contractors, businesses and tradespeople.” Fortis and B.C. Hydro were at the event to give information on the specific rebates and incentives that are available through them. Lohman said the participation of local governments is also a big part of the program being a success. “All of the local governments within the East Kootenay and the rural area directors have been very, very supportive,” she said, adding that the District of Sparwood, City of Fernie and the rural area directors for the RDEK have decided to contribute $50 to energy assessments in their communities. “So what that means, for a $90 to $100 audit price, they will essen-

The East Kootenay Energy Diet is officially launched at Rotary Park in Cranbrook on Friday, July 26. Pictured, left to right: RDEK board chair Rob Gay, BC Hydro’s Diane Tammen, Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett, community energy manager Megan Lohman, and CBT’s Jennifer Krotz. tially be cutting that in half.” She said the assessments would typically cost closer to $300. There will also be special loans available through East Kootenay Community Credit Union and Kootenay Savings, exclusively to

energy diet participants. Starting in September there will be community specific kick-offs for each community in the East Kootenay. Cranbrook Mayor Wayne Stetski said conservation of energy is a priority for him as

mayor, as well as the rest of council. “We have four initiatives under way,” Stetski said. One is the water conservation initiative that has reduced water consumption by 16 per cent in the past few years. It includes watering re-

Push to have Gray Creek Pass named part of the Trans Canada Trail Continued from page 1 The history of the route goes back to the 1950s, Lymbery explained, when Cominco built a power line over Gray Creek Pass. Cominco employees who had relocated from Kimberley to Riondel were keen to have a shorter route back to the East Kootenay, and at the time two roads were considered – one over Gray Creek Pass, and one over Rose Pass to the north. It wasn’t until the late ‘80s when the push for the backcountry route finally gathered momentum. Rose Pass would have required a three-mile tunnel, Lymbery said, so that idea was abandoned. Gray Creek Pass was finally completed in the 1990s, and officially opened in July 1990. Oliver Lake Recreation Site was established at the summit of the pass at 6,800 feet. “This was designed for semi trailers and logging trucks,” Lymbery said. “In the early years, it was the recommended route for German tourists driving their rental motor homes.” But for the first time last spring, slides damaged the road

and kept it closed, much to the disappointment of backcountry enthusiasts, the chambers of commerce, and even Cranbrook city council, which spoke out in favour of the pass in September. Finally, on October 8, the road was fixed, and the pass’s short season began. Snow usually makes the high-altitude route impassable by the end of October. But this summer, Mother Nature was shining on the pass, and it opened at the beginning of July. The Rocky Mountain Forest District still urges 4WD vehicles only to travel the route, which is narrow and rough in parts. Vehicles towing trailers or motorhomes, and wide vehicles shouldn’t attempt it. Still, it’s open, which is good news for backcountry enthusiasts. “It’s not a cliffhanger or anything like that. It’s a good solid road. A lot of it is built to main haul road status,” said Lymbery. “We have quite a few people who go up and picnic at Oliver Lake. “It’s still somewhat spring time up there. There are some flowers up there.” What’s more, the route is unofficially part of the Trans Canada

Trail. “The official Trans Canada Trail is from Cranbrook to Kimberley (on North Star Rails to Trails). The unofficial part is from Kimberley to Gray Creek,” Lymbery explained. “We are working on that.” A handful of people have made the trek over the pass on foot or on bicycles so far this season. There’s a push to improve signage over the route, as many people have reported difficulty ensuring they are on the right path when other forestry roads connect with the pass. At the Gray Creek Store, which is on Highway 3A where the pass connects back to the pavement, Lymbery has set up a guest book where those walking or cycling the pass can register. “It doesn’t matter which way somebody is going, whether it’s cycling or hiking, we would like to get a record of how many people are using it and help it become officially part of the Trans Canada trail,” he said. The Gray Creek Pass will be closed from July 29 to 31 at 6.5 kilometres from the Crawford Bay side.

strictions, rebates for low-flow toilets, a leak detection system, and a program that turns down the water pressure at night. Another is the wood stove exchange program partnership with Wildsight. Cranbrook is now also a solar community. The City of Cranbrook has also hired a

corporate energy manager to review the city’s buildings and the process that they do in Cranbrook from an energy perspective. Stetski said the city is pleased to be partnering in the East Kootenay Energy Diet. “I think it bodes very well for conservation in the City of Cranbrook and East Kootenay,” he said. “And the good news is you can also save money from your own pockets by participating. RDEK board chair Rob Gay said that programs like this one usually take a while to get off the ground. “The problem with programs like this one is they are usually designed for the larger cities,” Gay said. “To do it in a place (where) we have people spread from Elkford to Spillimacheen, it’s a little bit harder. But that’s what we’ve done.” He said that the various groups and municipalities have collaborated to get this far and now it’s up to the residents to take advantage of the program. B.C. Hydro doesn’t

typically partner with smaller communities on these sorts of initiatives, and this is the first of its kind in the province. Bill Bennett, recently appointed Minister of Energy and Mines, said that B.C. Hydro has to invest about $2 billion a year into aging dams and other energy infrastructure. “The job that Premier Christy Clark has given me is to make sure that Hydro is able to continue to make those investments, because it is an investment into the future of our economy, but at the same time try to keep the increase in rates down as much as possible.” Bennett said that in the Clean Energy Act that the B.C. Liberals passed in 2007, conservation is looked at as a new form of energy. “We think that we have to focus hard on conservation and find that electricity, instead of going out and spending that money,” he said. “This program fits into that context.” For more info on the diet go to

Camp a support network for burn survivors Continued from page 1 “The campers all have one thing in common: they are all burn survivors who have spent some time in a burn unit.” Robertson said that the kids’ burn injuries have various causes, such as electricity, campfires, and structure fires. “The leading cause of burns to the campers seems to be from hot liquids and the majority of these could have easily been prevented. Hot liquid scalds can come from hot water from the tap, spills from coffee pots, crock pots and hot liquids in mugs. A small amount of hot liquid can do severe damage to young children as their skin is four times

more sensitive than an adult,” he said. At first, some of the children at camp – especially if it’s the first time they’ve attended – are uncomfortable showing their scars, but they soon overcome that. “Burn Camp provides the campers with an opportunity to interact with other kids who have gone through similar traumatic experiences. It allows them to connect with others and provides a refuge where they can just be kids and not have to worry about their scars,” said Robertson. “Camp gives the kids an opportunity to work on the emotional healing that is very neces-

sary with such injuries. It provides the kids with a support network that they can rely on for years to come. The campers and counsellors form a close knit group and liken it to a second family.” Over the six days, campers took part in challenging activities – such as obstacle courses, zip lines, and high rope challenges – as well as fun camp activities – such as hip-hop dancing, self-defence training, cheerleading, and a skit night. The highlight was the annual dance, Robertson said, where a cruise ship was brought in so the campers and counsellors could tour the area while they cele-

Kimberley kids encourage others to get outside K ait y Brown Townsman Staff

Kimberley is one of six cities to be chosen for GET OUTSIDE BC. Five local youth travelled to Squamish for a five-day trip earlier this month, full of workshops to learn about how to encourage others to stay fit in their community. The program taught the students how to plan outdoor activities in their communities and re-kindled their passion for the outdoors. “The purpose of the ‘Get Outside BC’ project is to connect youth to the outdoors in a meaningful and sustainable way, and give them a sense of purpose and the capacity to inspire others to spend more time in the outdoors,” explained, Lori Joe, Regional Program Coordinator. The time spent in the outdoors can in-

Our Kimberley group has lots of ideas, and our events are looking promising. We see Kimberley as an already active town and our projects will just help keep our community involved. We can’t wait to start planning!

Marlo Armstrong The experience I got from the trip was incredible. The people there were just like family. I would have to say it isn’t what I expected. There were more workshops than I had thought, and not as much exploring the area. The trip wasn’t a challenge at all. I think the challenge will be our projects and events. I learned how to organize, create, and plan a successful event. The trip has given me the knowledge to be able to get sponsors, network, and more. The trip hasn’t given

me a new passion for the outdoors but has strengthened it. To my understanding right now, the group of us are brainstorming on the idea of going on a BC Parks hike. We are going to try to get a ranger to guide us into the St. Mary’s Alpine Park. I will just be a day hike with a few people. It should be a great start to get us known to the town.  Bryn Oakley “Get Outside” was different than I had expected but it was an awesome experience and I would suggest anyone who has an opportunity to go should

Michael Mitchell At every level Squamish was amazing, from learning new things to meeting new people. It was an exceptional trip which I highly recommend to anyone that gets the chance to go. Although five kids went, we all plan to work together and run outdoor activities catered towards youth. The two main ideas we discussed were leading a hike into the St Mary’s alpine and getting youth interested in kayaking as we hope to have a kayak specific water park in the near future. Keaton Smith The experience was very fun and memorable. We did lots of workshops and got to see beautiful new scenery that I’ve never seen before. I learned that when

you go somewhere new, you’ve got to keep your head up so you can have a good perspective on the new things you see and the new people you meet. The Kimberley participants are going to come together and do a project that’s going to consist of many events, from smaller events such as longboarding races to a winter fun day. Our group’s highest expectation would be to carry on this group for years until we all graduate high school and then pass on the group to other youth leaders in Kimberley.

Gustaf Hagland “Get Outside BC” was full of interesting people and beautiful scenery. The week we had was perfectly balanced between fun and learning. If I learned anything from “Get Outside BC” it would definitely have to be confidence. Standing in front of a large group of people singing someone else’s piece is very different than presenting your own idea. Also, I learned how to whistle with my hands. My future goals for Kimberley are to set up a longboarding event. This event will be for all ages and will focus on teaching safety for longboarders.

If Rocky Mountain Forest District engineer, Dave Rebagliatti, was quoted accurately in the July 24th Townsman – and I have no reason to believe he wasn’t – I have to take strong exception to his comment there is only “one hike” in Mause Basin for the Forest District to worry about in terms of repairing the access roads destroyed by the July rainstorm. Any recreational hiker in this area knows the Mause road accesses dozens of hikes in the basin and beyond the basin, depending on how fit you are and how far you want to go. The old mining road is also the main access to the area’s highest and most iconic peak, Mt. Fisher, the most climbed peak in the entire Cranbrook region and a major draw for climbers abroad. I would also remind Mr. Rebagliatti that forest roads don’t just serve the forest industry in B.C. Long ago, provincial case law established that logging roads are also public roads and serve the public interest of hikers, campers, hunters, fishermen, skiers, snowmobilers, picnickers, swimmers and scores of other recreationalists. And, of course, they’re also critically important to the forest, mining, trapping and mineral exploration industries. Certainly after July’s disas-

trous floods, a priority list will have to be drawn up when it comes to repairing all the roads and bridges damaged in the local back country. But in a province where 93 per cent of the land is owned by the Crown (i.e. the public), the public interest must be very close to, if not on top, of that list. Gerry Warner Cranbrook

Julyfest The Kimberley & District Chamber of Commerce’s Julyfest 2013 was a success at many different levels, and we wish to thank all of those involved who made it happen. We would like to congratulate Julyfest Coordinator Dave Clarke for his exceptional dedication and work to make this year’s event our most successful. Dave’s vision of expanding Julyfest to a new level by adding 54-40 to the Saturday night entertainment, as well as recruiting a strong talent pool of entertainment in the bocce pits and the Kids Fest components, was greeted with favourable reviews by the participants. Dave’s work in coordinating the logistics made this Julyfest operate smoothly, and we greatly appreciate his effort. No event can be successful without the hard work of wonderful volunteers. They provid-

ed their muscle during setup, allowed their hands to get nearly numb while retrieving icy cold refreshments, refereed bocce, and assisted the musicians with moving gear. The Rotary Club of Kimberley sold tickets, the Chamber of Commerce board and nembers gave much needed assistance, and our security from Mountain Eagle and the local RCMP detachment ensured all the events were without incident. Michelle Nex and Leslie Birmingham deserve recognition for their organization and operation of the Canadian Bocce Championships. The event ran on time and participants were able to have total access to them during the event. We also would to thank Simone Desautels for her parade organization. We also want to thank all of the parade entries that came out. It was a great turn out with eclectic float themes. Well done! A big thank you goes out to the City of Kimberley, for their support and effort to make Julyfest the “Best of the Fests!” We have no doubt that the City of Kimberley has the best staff and we greatly appreciate the efforts they made to accomplish Julyfest. As Corporal Chris Newel reported in his RCMP report, Julyfest had very few incidents this year. Congratulations to the participants in bocce, soc-

cer, longboarding, roller derby and the 5k race who made this a fun and safe festival. We thank all the sponsors who helped out financially and with in-kind services. Without your support, a stronger dynamic event would not be possible. There were also a few people and businesses who assisted with last minute requirements, trouble shooting and general help throughout the weekend. You all know who you are and we appreciate you pulling through in a short amount of time to make this event what it was! Finally, thank you to the Kimberley community for all their support and patience as our city swells with visitors to participate in events and reignite friendships. We are truly a community graced with wonderful citizens, visionary business owners, and great festival participants. It is hard not to notice the amazing positive economic impact Julyfest has on Kimberley! We are all very much looking forward to the 42nd annual Julyfest in 2014 and plans are already under way to ensure another great event. We hope to see you all out there enjoying the festivities. Great job, Kimberley! Mike Guarnery Kimberley & District Chamber of Commerce

NDP soul search going nowhere B.C. NDP president Moe Sihota says an external review of the party’s performance in the May election will “look very much at the DNA of the NDP.” Early signs are not encouraging. Start with the five-member panel announced to conduct the review. The required “labour” representation is in the person of Cindy Oliver, president of the union representing college and university instructors, and Andy Ross, ex-president of COPE 378, which represents BC Hydro employees among others. Another appointee is NDP MP Jinny Sims, a former president of the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. If the party wants to further solidify its image as a lobby group for pension-subsidized government unions, it’s off to a great start. The terms of reference defy parody. In addition to unions, the panel required “more than one woman.” A sub-committee may be struck, if it has representation from “youth, women, labour, visible minority, LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisesexual, transgendered, questioning).” I presume the party’s lengthy anti-harassment policy will be read out to begin all meetings. Once they finally get down to business, the list of election campaign details they must examine is long. In addition to that, they must review “stakeholder relations

including community leaders, business, social movement, ethnic communities, environmental movement, affiliated unions and the labour movement.” One of the excuses offered by leader Adrian Dix for the party’s defeat was the loss of 40,000 jobs in the B.C. forest industry. The suggestion is that those people left for Alberta, and if they were still here, they would have voted NDP. That presumed solidarity has never existed in the private sector, and in fact the BC Views highest-paid union workers have good reason to vote for Tom lower taxes. To confirm B.C. Fletcher and Canada’s “progressive” tax system, all they have to do is look at their pay stubs. The mandate for this review mentions not one actual public policy issue. Here’s one the committee might kick around. Having lost the 2009 election campaigning against the carbon tax, the NDP is now calling for it to be increased and extended to greenhouse gases produced by industrial process emissions. A simple example is a cement kiln, which burns fuel to reach the temperature at which the components are partially burned and cement is produced. Cement manufacturers pay carbon tax on the fuel, whether it’s natural gas or shredded tires, but not on the process.  B.C. cement makers are already plead-

ing for relief, because the fuel-intensive process puts them at a price disadvantage with U.S. and Chinese producers. Further unilateral tax action by B.C. would only further increase imports, and potentially push B.C. firms out of business. Goodbye unionized private sector jobs. Dix’s last foray in question period before the summer legislature session adjourned was a demand for the government to order BC Ferries to build its next three ships in B.C. Leave aside the NDP’s uncritical zeal for state control, and their ill-fated experiment with aluminum fast ferries. The most likely bidder for this work is Seaspan, with shipyards in Esquimalt and North Vancouver.  Seaspan is hiring almost 2,000 people to build ships for the Royal Canadian Navy and Coast Guard. It will be flat out to get that done, and the company president can’t yet say if it has the capacity and skilled labour to bid on BC Ferries ships too. Seaspan has to operate in the real world of limited resources. So does the NDP, but it’s not clear if they can find a way out of their thicket of special interests and stale economic notions.

Either way, the army’s political project now requires the massive use of force: the supporters of the Brotherhood must be driven from the streets, by murder if necessary, and its leaders must be criminalised and banned. And other political idiots, in Washington, London and Paris, are going along with that too. President Barack Obama is uncomfortable with what is happening, but he won’t call it a coup because then he would be obliged to cut off $1.5 billion a year in aid to the Egyptian army. Instead, he calls it a “post-revolution transition”, and promises that the United States will be a “strong partner to the Egyptian people as they shape their path to the future.” Egypt is the biggest Arab country by far, and so long as the democratic revolution prospered in Egypt you could still say that the “Arab Spring” was changing things for the better, even despite the calamity in Syria. But it’s very hard to see how the Egyptians can find their way back from where they are now. Even worse, the Egyptian coup is stark proof that political Islam cannot succeed by taking the democratic path. The message it conveys to devout Islamists all over the Arab world is that Osama bin Laden was right: only by violence can their political project succeed. Thanks a bunch, General Sisi.

Brandt Snedeker wins RBC Canadian Open for sixth PGA Tour victory

OAKVILLE, Ont. - Brandt Snedeker shot a 2-under par 70 on Sunday to win the RBC Canadian Open. The 32-year-old from Nashville finished at 16 under for the tournament at Glen Abbey Golf Club for his sixth PGA Tour victory. Dustin Johnson (70), Matt Kuchar (71), William McGrit (68) and Jason Bohn (71) tied for second at 13 under. After playing through scattered showers on Saturday, players had to deal with windy conditions under sunny skies at the course some 40 kilometres west of Toronto. David Hearn of Brantford, Ont., was the top Canadian after shooting a 73 to finish at 4 under. Canadian Press

Distance specialist Mo Farah challenges sprint great Usain Bolt to a race LONDON - Usain Bolt has a new challenger, and maybe even a new distance to think about. The biggest star in track is being sought out by Mo Farah for a charity race somewhere between Bolt’s sprint specialty and Farah’s distance domain. Farah, who won the 5,000 and 10,000 metres at last year’s London’s Olympics, says “it’d be great to be able to do a distance where people vote in what distance will be suitable ... Bolt, are you up for that?” Bolt seems to be considering Farah’s challenge. The Olympic sprint champion says “that sounds fun. It’s going to be hard, but for me it’s charity, so it’s just all about fun and enjoyment.” Associated Press

Phelps loving life but vague about swimming future BARCELONA, Spain - Michael Phelps keeps saying he has no plans for a swimming comeback. Yet he’s leaving the door open to change his mind in time for the 2016 Olympics. As Phelps puts it, “I don’t know what I’m doing tomorrow.” Phelps spoke Monday in Barcelona to The Associated Press and other international media organizations in a series of one-on-one interviews set up by sponsor Speedo. While Phelps quickly shoots down questions about whether he’s done any clandestine training for a possible comeback, he isn’t as adamant as he’s been in the past about his swimming career ending for good at last summer’s London Olympics. Associated Press

Bogosian signs seven-year contract with Jets WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets have signed defenceman Zach Bogosian to a seven-year, $36-million contract. Bogosian was the Jets’ final restricted free agent who needed a new deal. He’ll count just over $5.14 million against the salary cap. The 23-year-old has 34 goals and 69 assists in 297 games, all with the same franchise, beginning with its days as the Atlanta Thrashers. Bogosian was invited to U.S. Olympic orientation camp that will take place next month. Last week the Jets signed right-winger Blake Wheeler to a six-year, $33.6-million contract. They also gave restricted-free-agent centre Bryan Little a five-year, $23.5-million deal. Canadian Press

Whitecaps unveil fall Kootenay Academy plans SUBMIT TED

Vancouver Whitecaps FC regional head coach David Broadhurst will be in Nelson from August 10 to 18 to lead the evaluations for the Whitecaps FC Kootenay Prospects Academy. Boys and girls ages U-10 to U-18 will have the opportunity to be evaluated for selection and invitation to the Kootenay Prospects program, which will include up to four boys and four girls training groups with 16 to 20 players per training group.

“We really enjoyed our inaugural year in the Kootenays and learned more about how the program can have the greatest impact

and benefit for local players,” said Whitecaps FC director of soccer development Dan Lenarduzzi. “Based on that we have made some adjustments this year that will provide a regular Whitecaps FC presence in the Kootenays, more regular contact with the players, and increased communication.” The program, including all sessions, will be run by Whitecaps FC Okanagan regional head coach David Broadhurst and will include a 10-month program with three phases, running September through June, with weekly training sessions. There will also be one travel weekend per phase, which last year included an MLS weekend in Vancouver featuring an on-field training session and a Whitecaps FC MLS match. “The club’s desire is to have an overall regional program strategy that will allow the Prospects Academy to be ac-

cessible to the best players in the Kootenay region,” said Broadhurst. “In this coming 2013-14 cycle, we will operate a West program which will primarily be open to players from Nelson and Kootenay South. The objective will be to work towards a similar East program for the fall of 2014-15. This will then provide the ability to connect the two pro-

grams for select training and events.” Whitecaps FC currently provide technical services to the Nelson Youth Soccer Association and hope to expand these services to other areas of the Kootenays. To be selected for the Whitecaps FC Prospects Academy, all players must register for the evaluation process. Evaluation sessions will

be held at Lakeside Park in Nelson during the weekends of August 10 and 11 and again on August 17 to 18. Players interested in registration for the evaluation can visit and select Kootenay Academy or contact David Broadhurst at or by phone at 250.550.5489.

Shirley, Lee released from U18 camp TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Kootenay Ice forward Collin Shirley and Cranbrook goaltender Payton Lee were both released from the national U18 Team Canada camp this past weekend in Toronto. Shirley, 16, scored a goal and posted an assist over the course of the camp, while Lee was swapped in goal for Team White at the halfway mark of all three intrasquad games. The final roster is

composed of seven players from the WHL, seven from the QMJHL and eight skaters from the OHL, and is coached by Dale Hunter, of the OHL’s London Knights. The squad will practice as a team together on Tuesday before heading over to Europe to chase Canada’s sixth straight gold medal at the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Touranment in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. In his rookie season with the Kootenay Ice

last year, Shirley, a left winger, posted nine goals and 14 assists for a total of 23 points. Lee, a Cranbrook native who tends the net for the Vancouver Giants, made his mark with the team last year, appearing in 36 games in his rookie year. Both players have international experience, as they played for their respective regional teams in the World U17 Hockey Challenge over the 2012 Christmas break.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: My niece is transgender (she’s a boy who wants to be a girl). She needs to take a hormone blocker, and it costs a fortune. Insurance won’t pay for it, so the whole family is chipping in. My brother-in-law doesn’t make much money, and he’s lazy. My parents paid most of their bills when they were first married, and they are giving my niece so much money that we cannot have our annual vacation. My parents will be giving them more money in a few months. Meanwhile, my niece gets everything she wants. My mother recently bought her a $200 outfit for her birthday. I suggested she get something less expensive because she is already paying a fortune for the hormone blocker. My parents now can’t send me to the university of my choice, so I have to opt for community college. I worked like a horse to get straight A’s, but still didn’t qualify for a scholarship big enough to cover the cost of the university. Taking out a loan is out of the question, because my parents won’t co-sign, and the bank won’t give me one without it. I think my sister should sell her jewelry to pay for the drugs, and she and my brotherin-law should downgrade to a smaller home if they need the money. My mother says I’m being selfish. Am I? -- Missing Out Dear Missing: This is your parents’ money. They can choose to give more to your sister (and her child), rather than pay for an expensive university education for you. We realize this isn’t fair, but it serves no purpose to build up resentment. You can get a perfectly good education at a community college for a fraction of the cost, and if you still want to attend a four-year university, you can look into transferring in two years, and research scholarships, grants and loans that may be available then. Your parents obviously believe your sister needs this money more than you do, which also means they feel you are responsible and motivated and will do OK without their help. Please prove them right. Dear Annie: This is for “Puzzled in Gary, Ind.,” who wondered why her senior age and white hair were attracting unwanted flirtation from lesbians. I, too, have a full head of white hair and just turned 59. I also happen to be a lesbian, so I believe I have the authority to speak to her concern. I don’t believe it’s her white hair that is causing the unwelcome attention. It’s more about posture, physical carriage and style of clothing that projects a certain “gay-dar” (gay radar). She shouldn’t change her hair color over this, but perhaps a more feminine hairstyle and wardrobe would make a difference. But you’re right, Annie. Flirting is not a sign of endangerment. -- Pomona, Calif. Dear Pomona: We appreciate the backup. Read on for more: From Florida: As I have aged, I also notice that white men don’t apparently find me sexy or relevant anymore. Thank heavens Hispanic and black men and lesbians still think I’m as cute as a button. I’d forget how to flirt if it weren’t for them. I’m strictly straight and happily married, but still find it a tremendous compliment when someone chats me up a bit. Santa Cruz: Speaking as a white-haired lesbian with all the “inside” knowledge available, I can only wish the rumors were true. Maybe she could give me some pointers. California: As a straight, older widow, I am confused by this, as well. After I stopped wearing my wedding ring, I began wearing rings on other fingers and learned that this is a “lesbian symbol.” How would I know this? I don’t grill people about their sexuality and don’t enjoy having to explain mine, which invariably requires mentioning the loss of my dear husband. I’m beginning to wonder whether I need to wear a fake wedding ring. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Getting back to their roots Members of the Cranbrook Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints began a four-day trek last week to help the youths get an idea of the hardships that the Mormon pioneers faced as they headed west in the 1800s. The trek took the group on a loop beneath the Steeples mountain range.
