Smooth season so far Arne Petryshen Townsman Staff
It’s been a slow burning season on the forest fire front in the Southeast Fire Centre region and in Cranbrook as well. “So far this season, we’ve had about 80 fires,” Karlie Shaughnessy, fire information officer for the Castlegar-based fire centre, said. “Those have burned about 285 hectares. Of those 49 were lightning caused and the rest person caused.”

Search and Rescue’s bright new future A generous donation helped Cranbrook Search and Rescue purchase a permanent new headquarters Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff
It’s been quite a year for Cranbrook Search and Rescue. Last Christmas, the volunteer organization took delivery of a new ground search and rescue truck, fully equipped with everything they need to look for people missing in the backcountry. In June, they bought two side-byside ATVs to help with ground
searches. And in April, a single anonymous donor gave the group $180,000 so they could purchase a permanent home. In between, 2013 has been one of the busiest years ever for ground search and rescue, which has responded to about 15 calls since January. In 2012 – also considered a busy year – they responded to 12 calls. Now, it’s hard to believe that three
short years ago, Cranbrook Search and Rescue (SAR) was operating out of a single bay in a shack behind the old fire hall. “I’ve been involved with volunteer groups for 30 years and for me, walking to that back alley and seeing the little shed, it was just another SAR,” said Greg Bedwell, SAR president, who moved to Cranbrook from Terrace five years ago. One truck was kept inside the
bay; another older truck was kept outside. Both vehicles were packed with equipment. In 2011, when Cranbrook Fire and Emergency Services moved out of the old fire hall next to city hall, SAR moved in, temporarily renting the space. Last year, they started looking for a permanent home.

Karlie Shaughnessy, Southeast Fire Centre Shaughnessy said the fire average for this time of year is 133 fires. “Cranbrook hasn’t had any significant fires this year,” she noted. Shaughnessy said the fire danger rating is varied throughout the Southeast region between moderate to extreme, and around Cranbrook the rating is at moderate to high.

More rain needed to decrease fire risk CONTINUED from page 1
The fire centre is forecasting an unsettled weather outlook with a mix of sun and cloud and a chance of afternoon thunderstorms, and will decide on a campfire ban in the near future. “Right now fire officials are considering putting a campfire ban in,” she said. “They are watching the weather really closely to see if it hits that region where we need to put a campfire ban in,” said Shaughnessy. She said it depends on the amount of precipitation that comes out of the thunderstorms in the next few days, and added that if the ban comes in, it would probably be next week at the earliest. “We’re just hoping
we see a little bit of rain with these storms that come through.” There are open fire prohibitions on every type of fire, which limits the only type of fire to a campfire less than a half metre high and half metre wide. Items like
fireworks are also banned. She noted that last year a full campfire ban never came into effect. She also mentioned that there have been a large number of abandoned campfires and incidents throughout the area. “We’ve had 129
campfire incidents this year, and last year we only had 100. So it’s slightly above average,” she said. The incidents mostly consisted of campfires left on Crown land. For more information on the fire conditions go to www.bcwildfire.ca.
Libby Dam fire supressed SUBMIT TED
A small fire in the Souse Gulch day-use area in Montana on Lake Koocanusa behind Libby Dam was suppressed Sunday afternoon, but some recreation areas remain closed to the public. The fire was reported Friday evening, closing Souse Gulch to the public until 4 p.m. MST Sun-
day while fire suppression and monitoring were underway. The fire impacted approximately 1.5 acres of the day-use area. Fire suppression support was provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service fire personnel and a tanker helicopter. Fire officials believe
it was a human-caused fire. The exact source is unknown, with no further evidence to support an investigation. With the recent hot, dry weather, please be careful with all fire, making sure any source of heat or flame is dead out and liberally doused with water before leaving the area.
Drowning deaths up in B.C. BL ACK PRESS

Members of the East Kootenay Shrine Club invited East Kootenay Foundation for Health’s Donna Grainger to tour the Shriners Hospitals for Children Care Canada bus. The bus travels through the East Kootenay to take children to the Spokane Shriners’ or BC Children’s Hospitals. While on site, the regional Shrine Club gave EKFH a donation of $3,500 to help purchase a pediatric vital signs monitor for the East Kootenay Regional Hospital. This and many other generous donations has resulted in the Shriners donating more than $22,000 to health care through the foundation.

Veteran folk troubadour plays Kimberley Ferdy Bell and
“I haven’t played the Kootenays since last winter,” remarks roots songwriter Stephen Palmer. “I did a show at the Snoring Sasquatch in Creston: very friendly room! I played for the Kootenay Bluegrass Association and had a great jam session afterwards with lots of acoustic pickers; I played Silverton...a very historic area which gave me a lot of good song ideas!” So here’s hoping Mr. Palmer receives much more memorable song ideas when he performs live at BJ’s Creekside Pub in Kimberley the evening of Thursday, August 1. “Songwriting’s definitely an ongoing process with me,” Palmer admits. “I get a lot of
my best ideas on the road, and I get lots of inspiration from other pickers and writers, young and older...always lots of new material. After over 47 years of gigging, I love touring more and more. I love meeting new people and playing for new audiences, and I always enjoy performing my own music. It’s been better since I started playing my best music for people, rather than following some bar manager’s hackneyed formula for maximum alcohol consumption. People can always tell when it’s the real goods, and it’s just what they deserve for taking the time out to come to my shows.” Stephen Palmer cut his teeth musically in the late1960s with Edmonton’s psy-
chedelic rock band Graeme Wafer, moving to country-rock in the early 1970s with Sweetgrass. Building solid musical respect across western Canada through the rest of the ‘70s as a formidable guitarist, Palmer moved into singer-songwriter mode in the 1980s. After living on Vancouver Island for many years, Palmer has called Moose Jaw home for the better part of a decade, and obviously loves it and the musical cronies he associates with. “Deep Dark Woods are amazing,” Palmer says. “Jack Semple can play blues, jazz, or folk extremely well. North America’s guitar champion Bob Evans is from Regina. In May I played two shows for about a thousand 16-year-old
high-school choir and band kids at the Mae Wilson Theatre... I encored with “Ring of Fire” and they sang the roof off!” Palmer’s new album Prairie Airs will be released this coming winter, featuring mostly original material and a brisk take on Stompin’ Tom Connors’ “Roll On Saskatchewan.” With music indeed keeping him young, the good-natured Stephen Palmer looks set to keep on keeping on as long as his guitar’s strung and tuned. “It just keeps getting better and better, the longer you can keep it going. No wonder Gordon Lightfoot isn’t retiring!” Stephen Palmer performs live at BJ’s Creekside Pub at 8 p.m. on Thursday, August 1.
New depot will suit Search and Rescue for years Continued from page 1
“We decided we needed more room to work and expand,” said Greg. “We started looking for places to rent or lease.” The criteria was tricky: it needed to be east of the railway tracks so rescue vehicles weren’t held up by trains. It should be close to the highway for rapid response. They needed somewhere large enough to hold the two vehicles, a trailer, and have space for storage and training. As Search and Res-
cue began to hunt for property in earnest, they got good news. Actually, pretty incredible news. “A longtime local resident approached us with a significant donation,” said Greg. “He had two stipulations – one is that he not be known to anyone but myself and my wife. The other was that the money go towards the purchase of a building. He didn’t want to see us stuck paying rent or lease payments.” When all was said and done, that anonymous donor gave Search
and Rescue $180,000 towards the purchase of a new headquarters. “My hands were shaking when he handed me the cheque,” said Greg. “We had a really good down payment. It put us in a position where we could afford a reasonable location.” In April, Search and Rescue moved out of the fire hall and into its new location at 38 7th Avenue South. It’s less than a block from the highway and just about smack dab in the middle of the strip.
The 4,500 square foot building, which used to be an auto body shop, has been totally renovated. It has heated flooring, a meeting room, office space, a kitchen and bathroom, and plenty of storage. SAR still has a mortgage on the building, which it will cover through donations and government grants. Those government grants have proved very helpful over the past two years. On top of the fiveyear-old state-of-the-art highway rescue vehicle with the Jaws of Life,
Cranbrook SAR last year used B.C. gaming grants to purchase a new ground rescue vehicle. It has plenty of space to carry rescuers, can charge a generator, and lots of nooks and crannies for gear. This year, gaming grants allowed Search and Rescue to purchase two side-by-side ATVs in June, which will be used on ground searches in the backcountry. “They are going to be a great asset to us. We have done a few calls where we thought we could use them,” said
SAR volunteer Nick Bedwell. One of only five highway rescue teams in B.C., Cranbrook’s highway team consists of about 14 rescue volunteers. Each year, the team responds to between 80 and 100 calls. The ground search team has about 16 volunteers. SAR trains every Wednesday night, with sessions alternating between the highway team and the ground team. Volunteers have the opportunity to be trained in both, but it’s not a re-
Kimberley teen receives award in Victoria Submit ted

Kimberley Cadet Ethan Green (bottom) learned how to build a natural A-frame shelter at the Air Cadet Training Centre in Victoria.
METCHOSIN, B.C. – 14-year old Ethan Green of 266 Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron in Kimberley formally received the Most Improved Cadet Award for his Flight, i.e. class, in the Basic Survival Course (BSC), on parade today in Victoria. One Most Improved Cadet is selected from each Flight, and takes into account their overall improvement in the areas of performance, participation, attitude, conduct, and teamwork skills. “Cadet Green took a while to settle,” said his Flight Sargent, Jake Lisk, a senior cadet from 768 Squadron in Quesnel. “Once he became engaged in the subject, he focussed, and emerged as an enthusiastic team player.” Over 190 air cadets from throughout B.C. formally graduated during a ceremonial parade at Albert Head Air Cadet Summer Training Centre on Friday, July 26, 2013, in Victoria. Cadets graduated from four
program areas: (1) Basic Aviation Technology and Aerospace Course (BATAC), (2) Basic Drill and Ceremonial Course (BDCC), (3) Basic Fitness and Sports Course (BFSC), and (4) BSC. Mr. Doug Slowski, B.C. Air Cadet League Representative, presented Cadet Green with his award. Flights within each of the four courses had approximately 25 cadets. Cadets within each Flight are eligible to receive one of the two individual awards: Top Cadet or Most Improved Cadet. During the three-week BSC, the cadets learned how to react when an emergency situation arises and they do not have access to the normal comforts of home. More than teaching teens how to camp, the Basic Survival Course provided hands-on exposure to primitive outdoor living skills, how to aid in a rescue, as well as how to be rescued.
The teens learned how to problem-solve under adverse conditions, including hunger and isolation, under stress and with a lack of sleep. The cadets learned how to push their personal boundaries, a transferrable life skill that can be applied to any situation, regardless of the life path they choose after they leave the Cadet Program. The 53 cadets on the BSC learned from municipal and federal experts in urban and ground Search and Rescue, endured four days in the removed woods, building their own shelters, preparing their own food, collecting their own water, isolated from world without electronics in teams of two, and had a number of outdoor-related field trips. During their three-week course, the teens – the majority between 13 and 15 years of age – lived separately from the rest of the 350 cadets on course at Albert Head, sleeping in large tents in a wooded area.
quirement. Everyone involved with Search and Rescue volunteers their time, which can quickly add up to more than 200 hours a year. “Time is at a premium because we all have our regular jobs,” said Greg. What’s more, mutual aid agreements see Cranbrook Search and Rescue respond to emergencies all over B.C. “We could be called to go anywhere. Our team leaders can be requested throughout the province,” said Greg. Many businesses in the community throw their support behind Search and Rescue, he went on. “Every year we like to thank our supporters. We rely on these people a lot. Some give us thousands of dollars, if not physically then in-kind,” said Greg. Now, Cranbrook Search and Rescue has adequate equipment and vehicles to respond to emergencies throughout the region, a host of volunteers to carry out the work, and a headquarters that will see them well into the future. “People expect this for every SAR group – and why not?” said Greg, indicating the building, vehicles and equipment that make up Cranbrook Search and Rescue’s bright new future.

Rotary scholarship money available for post-secondary students Submit ted
Local post-secondary students entering the latter part of their university training have a chance for financial help this fall thanks to a scholarship program sponsored by the Cranbrook Sunrise Rotary Club. Four scholarships are being given out
ranging from $1,000 to $1,500 to students entering their third, fourth or fifth year of studies. At least one of the awards will be given to a student in arts or the performing arts. Students must have graduated from Mount Baker Secondary School or a local private school or home school. Criteria
Theatre camp builds to free public show Arne Petryshen Townsman Staff
On Friday, kids taking part in the Theatre Boot Camp will put on a number of performances beginning at 2 p.m. in Cranbrook Rotary Park. The kids will be making up the performances themselves, as part of the boot camp, said Lisa Aasebo, who is putting on the camps. “They are pretty talented guys, so we’ll see what they come up with,” she said. The camp runs from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. each day this week. Aasebo said the group works on characters, scene study, mask work and improv. She teaches them techniques, then helps them to put together and rehearse their own unique show. “It’s all leading towards them creating their own show. I’m a professional actor, so I work on using the actual techniques and real names of things that we use in the theatre world,” she said. “So they have all the rules and skills and improv, mask work, scene study and character development. All that works together to create a show.” Aasebo lives and works in Cranbrook and just finished performing in ‘Self Help’ with the Kimberley Summer Theatre. She has two endeavours, Creative Monkeys children’s programmes and Theatre Boot Camp. Aasebo moved back to Cranbrook at the end of March and started the camps. The theatre camp is their first summer camp of the year.
is based on academic merit at the post-secondary level, financial need and community service. Money for the scholarship program comes from various Rotary fundraising projects including the Rockies Film Festival, the annual Cranbrook Public Library used book sale and several others. Sept. 1 is the deadline to apply for the scholarships and applications can be found on
the Cranbrook Sunrise Rotary webpage or Facebook page. Completed application forms are to be sent to: Scholarship Committee, Rotary Club of Cranbrook, Box 765, Cranbrook, B.C. V1C 4J5 or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Scholarship winners will be notified by mid-September. The program has been in place since 1998 and has helped many local students over the
years, says Cranbrook Sunrise Rotary member Alex McLeod. “It’s basically local funds raised by Rotary members going back to teach kids.” And there’s a reason why the money is directed at third, fourth and fifth year students, McLeod says. “There’s a lot more money out there for kids in first and second year. But when they go farther in their studies it starts to get lean so we
decided to give them this last financial kick to help them make it through.” Last year some 40 local students applied to the program and this year there’s likely to be a similar number, says McLeod. “I think there will definitely be enough to make the selection process a challenge.” Grades, financial need and volunteerism will all be given equal weight in the selection
process, he says. The Rotary movement itself is based on volunteerism and that’s why community service is one of the “intangibles” in the selection process, McLeod adds. “Rotary is all about giving back to people, and in this case, rewarding kids for the hard work they’ve done.” Submitted by Gerry Warner, Cranbrook Sunrise Rotary Club
“It’s a really good show. It’s great to see what they come up with. The skit they’re working on right now is pretty funny.” Lisa Aasebo “We have a bunch of other camps coming up, but this is the acting week,” she explained. “This is the acting workshop. The next week coming up is the tech workshop. Then we have a writing and directing workshop, and then sets and props.” The classes are usually for 12-17-year-olds, but she said she lets younger children in if they are keen, like the 9-13-year-olds in the class this week. The public performance is at 2 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 2 in Rotary Park, Cranbrook. “It’s a really good show. It’s great to see what they come up with,” she said. “The skit they’re working on right now is pretty funny. Aasebo said she plans to eventually turn the camps into a non-profit association. “I’m trying to really get it to a point where it becomes a student-led production company,” she said. “So they can create their own shows. They do all the stage managing and tech and all their costumes themselves, write the shows themselves and that sort of thing. That is the end goal.” For more information email Aasebo at theatrebootcamp@ gmail.com or call her at 604-990-9199.

US swimmer Ledecky crushes world record in 1500 freestyle PAUL NE WBERRY Assocaited Press
BARCELONA, Spain - American teenager Katie Ledecky smashed the world record in the 1,500 freestyle for her second gold medal at the world swimming championships on Tuesday. Looking stronger at the end of the gruelling race than she did at the beginning, the 16-yearold obliterated the world record in the 1,500meter freestyle by more than 6 seconds Tuesday night for her second gold medal at the world swimming championships. Fellow American
Missy Franklin picked up her second gold medal, as well. Cruising through a demanding double, the 18-year-old star of the London Olympics easily won the 100 backstroke, then returned about an hour later to post the second-fastest time in the semifinals of the 200 free. Elsewhere, Victoria’s Ryan Cochrane advanced to the final in the men’s 800-metre freestyle. The 24-year-old swam his heat in 7:49.58 Tuesday, putting him in third position heading into Wednesday’s final.
American Connor Jaeger (7:49.28) and China’s Sun Yang (7:49.37) were the only swimmers faster. Elsewhere, Montreal’s Barbara Jardin was eliminated in the semifinals of the women’s 200metre freestyle, while Sam Cheverton of Pointe-Claire, Que., didn’t advance past the heats. Edmonton’s Richard Funk missed the semifinal by just 0.2 seconds in the men’s 50-metre freestyle and Zack Chetrat of Oakville, Ont., missed the semifinal in the men’s 200-metre butterfly.
Fraser avoids arbitration with Leafs C ANADIAN PRESS
TORONTO - The Maple Leafs have avoided arbitration with Mark Fraser and signed the defenceman to a one-year deal. Fraser’s deal is reportedly worth $1.275 million, in between what the two sides were requesting if the case
went to an arbitration hearing. The 26-year-old had eight assists and a NHL defenceman-leading 85 penalty minutes in 45 games this past season. He appeared in four of Toronto’s seven firstround playoff games. With Fraser signed, the only restricted free
agents the Maple Leafs have left to deal with are centre Nazem Kadri and defenceman Cody Franson. General manager Dave Nonis said last week it wasn’t a “red flag” that those players needed new deals and did not anticipate a problem signing them.

Local wins lacrosse league title TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor
A Vernon Jr. B lacrosse team won their league championships with a little help from some Cranbrook talent. Joel Fruncillo, who mans the net for the Vernon Tigers, led his team to the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League title after down in the Kamloops Venom in four games in the final series. With a league title in hand, the Tigers are waiting for two other Jr. B league playoffs in the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island to end before all three go head to head for the provincial championship during the upcoming August long weekend. “I’ve been waiting for this for a long time,” said Fruncillo. “I’ve never really been on a championship team before, so this is a great opportunity.” Fruncillo, a 20-yearold Cranbrook product, has been with the team for a few years after growing up in the Key City and moving away to further his lacrosse career on the coast. “I played in Cranbrook pretty much for my whole life until I was 16, then I got drafted to a team on the coast,” said Fruncillo. He ended up with
Joel Fruncillo accepts the trophy and banner with team captain Keith Hanna the Venom after playing a bit in the Jr. A Intermediate league in the Lower Mainland. Winning the league this year is a long time coming, since they lost out in the final last year, with Fruncillo on the bench with an injury. “Last year, we made it all the way to the finals but I broke my hand at the end of the regular season, so I wasn’t able to play,”
said Fruncillo, “but this year, when we came into the season, we were definitely looking forward to contending—we were definitely coming in as one of the top teams and we were expecting to be in the finals.” The Venom gave the Tigers a tough final, winning one game, however, the Vernon squad was able to rack up the necessary three
victories in the best-offive series. “They [Kamloops] started out really weak this year—I think they were 1-10 at one point in the season—but then towards the end of the year, they got a couple guys back and started really coming together,” said Fruncillo. “By playoffs, they upset the number one team— Kelowna—and gave us a really good series.”

Kyle Brodziak had no hesitation about helping Josh Harding when the Minnesota Wild goaltender asked. When Harding, who played 10 games last season after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, met a girl at the NHLPA’s annual charity golf tournament who’s living with the disease, Brodziak was even happier to have made the trip. “She seemed really thrilled because she said that there’s not much awareness out there and she was just really happy that he was doing it,” Brodziak said. What Harding is doing is more than just playing through MS. The 29-year-old started Harding’s Hope with the goal of raising awareness and helping those stricken with the disease
that attacks the nerves in the brain, spinal cord and eyes. When he launched the endeavour last week, Harding said he wanted to be a role model for those with MS and show that it’s an incorrect perception of the disease to think about wheelchairs and death. No doubt continuing to play goal in the NHL serves that purpose. “I felt great,” Harding said in an interview Monday. “I almost feel better. I’ve really put my mind to this - not that I wasn’t before - but I know I’ve worked so hard to get to where I’m at.” That’s not to say Harding’s life has been easy since being diagnosed in October. He has had to pay closer attention to his body when he feels tired and needs to plan his schedule around medications and more. “In the summer I didn’t know
how much the heat would affect me. I came to realize that it makes me pretty fatigued,” Harding said. “I’ve just got to be careful about things and know my body and learn and always just be thinking about what’s best for my health.” Harding is trying to balance taking care of himself and promoting his new charity. Tuesday he attended the NHLPA’s tournament at Glen Abbey Golf Club, which was set to raise $100,000 for various player charities, with the winning team getting $40,000. Harding’s team included Brodziak, Wild defenceman Tom Gilbert, New York Rangers goaltender Martin Biron and forward Dominic Moore, New York Islanders forward Cal Clutterbuck and former Minnesota goaltender Dwayne Roloson.

Pavelski signs five-year extension with Sharks Stephen Whyno Canadian Press
Cranbrook’s Colin Patterson is shown on a projection screen giving a speech at his induction into the B.C. Hockey Hall of Fame in Penticton over the weekend.
Patterson inducted into B.C. Hockey Hall of Fame Tre vor Cr awley Sports Editor
The B.C. Hockey Hall of Fame held their induction ceremony on Friday night, which featured a class that included Cranbrook’s own Colin Patterson, a hockey coach who grew up in the area and has deep roots in the game. Patterson’s class also included retired NHLers Mark Recchi and Paul Karyia, along with fellow bench boss Marc Crawford, who has helmed a few NHL teams including the Vancouver Canucks and Dallas Stars. There was also a Cranbrook connection in the induction of the the Kamloops Blazers dynasty teams of 1993/94 and 1994/95, which featured Ryan Huska on both rosters.
Huska, who was born in Cranbrook but grew up in Trail, played with the Blazers in his major-junior days, winning back-to-back Memorial Cups in those two years. Huska is currently the head coach of the WHL’s Kelowna Rockets. Rounding out the class was Nancy Wilson, a long-time coach who has led teams at the university, provincial and national levels. Hosted in Penticton, Patterson said he had a great time at the ceremony, giving a brief speech when he was called to the podium. “I’m privileged to be in with the group that I was inducted with and thanked all the the people who had helped me along the way and
some of my old coaches and some of the things people did for me growing up,” said Patterson. It was a friendly crowd filled with family, old friends and hockey contacts, said Patterson. “A lot of the coaches, I’m familiar with, and family was there and friends were there,” said Patterson, “so it was renewing some acquaintances with a lot of the coaches I spent time with in coaching clinics and various programs.” Patterson has spent a lifetime in the game, first as a player with Michigan Tech in the NCAA before moving into coaching, where he worked at various levels ranging from the Cranbrook Jr. B Colts to
celebrate BC DAY
the Canada’s Spengler Cup team. Patterson authored a series of lesson plans that was adopted by the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association— now Hockey Canada— which became an instrumental resource for coaches to foster skill development. Patterson was an assistant under Kootenay Ice head coach Ryan McGill during his first tenure when the team won a Memorial Cup in 2002. Patterson also juggled his coaching career with his day job as a teacher at Laurie Middle School, where he taught for 30 years in mathematics. Patterson is married to his wife, Janet, and has three sons—Brad, Shane and Jeff.
Joe Pavelski endured plenty of highs and lows during his first seven seasons with the San Jose Sharks. Most notably, he saw his year end short of the Stanley Cup final every time. Not living up to expectations so often earned the Sharks a dismal reputation for losing in the playoffs. “Every year we’ve come in, you’ve had that feeling that we can get the job done,” Pavelski said. “We haven’t turned that corner quite yet.” Yet was the word that resonated for Pavelski, who on Tuesday signed a five-year, US$30-million extension that keeps him with the Sharks through the 2018-19 season. It was a deal the
29-year-old centre signed not only for longterm security but also because he believes this group can win a championship. “To be a part of the core, to play those minutes, to be looked at like that, it’s one of the big reasons why I believe this team can win,” he said on a conference call with reporters. “It’s because we’ve been there, we’ve learned, we’ve grown up as a group in a lot of ways. To keep trying and be a part of it, it’s just pretty special.” San Jose general manager Doug Wilson pointed to Pavelski and 24-year-old centre Logan Couture as key pieces of the core moving forward. Couture earlier this off-season signed an identical ex-
tension to the one Pavelski got. In the past handful of years, players like Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau and Dan Boyle have most embodied the Sharks, for better or worse. Wilson spoke to those players’ agents about extensions, but at 34, 33 and 37 years old, Thornton, Marleau and Boyle have “gone through that phase” of getting locked up to long-term, lucrative contracts. Pavelski had already established himself in the NHL four years ago when he signed a $16-million contract. Since then, he has grown into an important contributor, having put up a total of 150 goals and 186 assists in 479 games, all with the Sharks.
Matt Flynn aiming for QB starting role with Oakland Raiders Josh Dubow Associated Press
NAPA, Calif. - Matt Flynn is solidifying his role as starting quarterback for the Oakland Raiders one year after losing that same job in training camp in Seattle. Flynn entered camp with the inside track over Terrelle Pryor and rookie Tyler Wilson to replace Carson Palmer in Oakland and has done nothing in the first week of camp to change that equation. It’s a far cry to what happened to Flynn a year ago in Seattle where Flynn went from coveted off-season freeagent acquisition with a $26 million contract to backing up a thirdround pick in a matter
of weeks at training camp. With Russell Wilson set as starter in Seattle, Flynn was traded to Oakland in the off-season and has done his best to hold onto this opportunity to start in the NFL. “I took away a lot of things from Seattle last year,” Flynn said Tuesday. “But the thing that I took away the most was that I want this even more now, even more this year. I’m blessed to have another opportunity at this and I’ll try to take advantage of it and do as much as I can to not let it get away from me.” Flynn has been the most impressive of the three quarterbacks so far in training camp
with the most accurate arm, a good grasp of the offence and strong leadership on the field. “I’m going in there and trying to be the best quarterback out here, trying to be the best quarterback for this team and help this team win as best I can,” Flynn said. “I’m coming in here every day with my hard hat on, trying to prepare.” While coach Dennis Allen has stressed an open competition at quarterback with Pryor and another rookie named Wilson - Tyler nothing that has been seen so far in the off-season or camp indicates that Flynn won’t be the starter when the season opens Sept. 8 in Indianapolis.

Will it work? Tonight: Return calls and emails, then decide. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You might want to go right past a problem that has stopped you in your tracks before.

Rhymes with Orange
By Hillary B. Price
Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: My husband, “Scott,” and I have been married for three years, and our families keep asking when we’re going to have children. It’s all they talk about. I just became a licensed physician’s assistant, and Scott was accepted into an Ivy League doctoral program. No congratulations or kudos for either of us. Scott’s friends held a small celebratory barbeque, and we invited his sisters and parents. All they did was talk about how we’ll never have time for kids with such busy careers. At my sister’s bridal shower, my aunt asked whether Scott and I were having fertility problems. I pointed out that I’m only 28, and she laughed and said, “Better hurry up!” Scott and I have a lot of student debt. We spent a lot of time apart during our studies and are now finally able to make time for each other and start putting away for the future. I mentioned to my parents that we were going on a cruise this summer, and my mother got all excited, assuming we were planning to get pregnant. I was dumbfounded and didn’t respond. She later told her friends that we were “trying,” and several of them contacted me with congratulations. I do not understand this fascination with my sex life. It’s embarrassing and annoying. We have a big family reunion coming up for Scott’s grandmother’s 80th birthday, and his sisters have told me that if they don’t see a bump, they’ll lock us in the closet and not let us out until I’m pregnant. I no longer want to attend, and Scott feels trapped. I’m at the end of my politeness rope. What should I do? -- Leave Us Alone Dear Leave: You have to be more assertive and less nice to these amazingly rude, intrusive people. Tell them, “We’re sorry if you are disappointed, but the topic of pregnancy is not under discussion. Scott and I will decide when to start a family. If you persist in bringing up the subject, we will be forced to leave.” Then ignore all angry comments in response and leave if you need to. Every time. Dear Annie: My sister recently died, and her son and daughter both spoke at the funeral service. Her son said lovely things, but my niece was quite negative, making mean and nasty remarks about her mother in front of family and friends. This was upsetting and hurtful to me. Is this appropriate? Do children take this opportunity to dump on their parents for things in the past? Because of this, I have decided not to have a memorial service. I’ve told my husband to have me cremated and my ashes dispersed at a beach where we played as children -- no family or friends. No parent is perfect, but my children were cared for properly, and we helped them even when they were grown. I don’t think they would do this terrible thing, but I’m -- Not Taking Any Chances Dear Not: It is cruel to trash a parent at a funeral service, when the deceased cannot defend herself. It also makes the guests terribly uncomfortable. Your niece obviously harbors a great deal of anger and pain. We hope she will see a therapist and work through this in a more productive manner. Dear Annie: I had a similar experience to “Want Duct Tape,” whose father-in-law hummed during their drives. I drove my late mother-in-law to her doctor appointments, weekly Bingo games and the beautician. She read every single sign we passed -- street signs, gas station signs, grocery store weekly specials, whatever. No one could have a conversation. She didn’t want to talk to us, but she made sure we couldn’t talk, either. I finally figured out that it was a passive-aggressive power play. We had to listen to her. The solution? Earplugs. -- Been There and Bought the T-Shirt Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

regional NEWS Tanker carrying 35,000 litres of fuel crashed while driving down closed road Kim Nursall Canadian Press
A tanker truck driver took a wrong turn and drove past two “road closed” signs before the vehicle tumbled off the road, spilling 35,000 litres of jet fuel into creek in a remote area of British Columbia’s West Kootenay region, says a Ministry of Transportation spokeswoman. “It is our understanding that he did not intend to travel on this road,” Kate Trotter said. The signs are in “very good condition and visible to all road users,” she said in an emailed statement Monday. Pictures and maps supplied by the ministry indicate several signs are posted along Lemon Creek Rd., warning drivers that it is inaccessible and unmaintained. One “road closed” sign about 700 metres before the truck fell into the river extends halfway across the gravel area, appearing to leave little room for larger vehicles to squeeze past. But Roger Nickel, the base manager for Executive Flight Centre in Revelstoke, B.C., the company that owns and operates the tanker, said drivers often go past such swing signs and find the fuel drop-off point just beyond the signs. He added that the Ministry of Forestry said it would have someone there to meet the driver to direct him and no one showed up. Officials from the Ministry of Forests declined to comment because their investigation is ongoing. Dozens of homes were evacuated Friday after the spill, and Environment Ministry officials have said dead fish were later found in Lemon Creek. B.C.’s environment minister said it’s difficult to draw conclusions about transportation issues from “an incident that was very out of the ordinary. “Once (cleanup) is dealt with we would be moving on to look at what, if anything, could have been done to prevent this with respect to the truck,” Mark Polak said. “In terms of overall policy,

This tanker truck took a closed road and overturned spilling 35,000 litres of fuel into Lemon Creek in the West Kootenay on Friday. we’d be not wise to be basing a lot of ... thinking on that one incident.” NDP environment critic Spencer Chandra Herbert said the spill highlights how, even with good safety protocols in place, one error can lead to devastating consequences. “When we’re talking about mass increase of exports of dangerous cargo, whether that’s oil, gas or other materials, we can’t assume just because somebody says it’s safe it means that it is,” he said. “We have to remain forever vigilant.” Helicopters fighting a wildfire in a remote area of B.C. were waiting for the fuel when the tanker rolled into the creek. “It’s typical during a fiery event that many different roads, whether it be forestry or logging roads, are used to get to the various sites,” Executive Fight Centre’s senior vice president, Wayne Smook, said. Depending on the severity of the fire season, Smook said dozens or more trucks may be dispatched during a single year. The tanker that crashed into Lemon Creek was the only truck delivering fuel to helicopters battling a wildfire burning near the town of Winlaw, B.C. In a news release, Smook apologized to residents for any hardships the crash may have caused. Noxious fumes filled the air as the jet fuel poured into the creek, forcing a temporary widespread
evacuation affecting 1,300 people. Residents and farmers could still not use the water for any reason as of Monday afternoon. “Do not drink, do not cook, do not bathe, do not go out into the river,” said Medical Health Officer Trevor Corneil. The Interior Health Authority also advised that locally grown fruit and vegetables should be thoroughly washed with alternate water sources, and fish from the rivers should not be eaten. It said wells close to the creek or rivers, particularly those in gravel or shallow sandy soils, may be contaminated. Corneil said ingestion of jet fuel can lead to nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. The fuel can also “cause exacerbation of any chronic diseases of the nervous system, the respiratory system or the cardiovascular system,” he said. However, Corneil said that although the effects of the fuel may be severe, as long as contact is brief the body can generally recover quickly. Provincial environment officer Rick Wagner said tests are being done to determine if the fish died because of the fuel spill or some other reason, and results should be available in the next couple of days. Representatives from multiple government agencies, as well as the company, are expected to answer questions about the incident at a meeting in Winlaw Tuesday night.
Dog sitters call in Search and Rescue to look for boaters Angel a Treharne Fernie Free Press
Concerned dog sitters called out Search and Rescue to search Lake Koocanusa for three boaters who had run into friends and not returned to pick up their dogs at the arranged time. The three boaters left to go fishing on Lake Koocanusa from
Englishman Creek Campsite on Sunday, and the group camping next to them agreed to watch their two dogs while they were gone. But when the three did not return by 11:30 p.m. The dog sitters called the RCMP who then called out Fernie Search and Rescue. Due to the darkness, Search
and Rescue were only able to send a vehicle to Dorr Road to drive parallel to the lake to listen for distress calls. Whilst doing this the subjects returned to their campsite at 2:20 a.m. They said they had met up with friends and decided to spend time with them before returning to their campsite.

DON’T DRINK and DRIVE Play it smart with spirited parties
Many party hosts are unaware that they may be held liable should a person become intoxicated at their event and then go on to injure another person while under the influence. This is why bartenders will stop serving customers who are visibly drunk. Although laws vary from place to place, party hosts should still keep tabs on their guests’ alcohol consumption, cutting off guests who might have had enough to drink. In addition to monitoring alcohol consumption, party hosts can employ these additional practices to keep everyone safe. * Collect keys upon entry to the party. Ask guests who plan to drink alcohol to surrender their car
keys to you when they arrive at the party. Guests may be offended at having to relinquish control of their cars, but it is a wise move to remove any temptation to drive away.

The rate at which alcohol leaves the body and enables persons to no longer feel its effects varies depending on age, gender, weight, and even race. Experts advise only having one alcoholic beverage per hour, which is the average time it takes for that drink to be metabolized. Consuming nonalcoholic drinks between alcoholic beverages
will keep blood-alcohol content down.

*Make nonalcoholic beverages available, too. Giving guests options may help them drink more responsibly. Drinking water is a way to flush out the system and reduce the effects of alcohol. Party hosts often make alcoholic beverages available to their guests. Use caution and monitor guests’ drinking so no one gets sick or injured.

Party hosts and hostesses are responsible for the safety of guests when alcoholic beverages are served. Parties catering to adults are often enhanced with a variety of food and beverage options, and alcoholic drinks are a common component of such gatherings. Party hosts and hostesses who will be offering the spirits to their guests should keep safety in the back of their minds.
