Farmers’ struggles shown to ag minister
Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett brought B.C.’s new minister for agriculture Pat Pimm to the East Kootenay on Monday S a l ly M ac D o n a l d Townsman Staff
B.C.’s agriculture minister got a firsthand look at the difficulties facing the East Kootenay ranching community on Monday, July 29. Minister Pat Pimm
spent the day in and around Cranbrook on a tour personalized by Kootenay East MLA and Minister of Energy and Mines Bill Bennett. Bennett’s tour focused on a key issue for local farmers: the seemingly arbitrary
boundaries of the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR), and how it restricts farmers’ ability to make a living. “The Agricultural Land Reserve was not the only issue we dealt with on the minister’s tour, but that was the
main reason I invited him up – to focus on that,” Bennett told the Townsman. The Agricultural Land Reserve was established in the 1970s to protect the loss of B.C.’s agricultural land to urbanization. The
boundaries encompass 4.7 million hectares of public and private land that may be farmed, forested or vacant. About five per cent of the province is inside the ALR. Owners of property within the ALR are sub-
ject to land use rules that differ from the rest of the province. Because farming is deemed the priority for that property, non-agricultural uses are regulated. If the property own-
ers wants to subdivide the land, use it for nonfarm purposes or exclude it from the ALR, it needs approval by the Agricultural Land Commission.

Groups get funding to bolster food security Arne Petryshen Townsman Staff
Food security in the East Kootenay recently got a healthy serving of $15,000 per year, for three years to the Cranbrook Food Action Committee and Wildsight Kimberley/Cranbrook. The funds are a piece of a $60,000 pie dished
out by Interior Health Authority through the Community Food Action Initiative. The funds are being divided between Cranbrook/Kimberley, Nelson, Kamloops and Canoe/Dog Creek. The East Kootenay Community Eats Project, proposed by the Cranbrook Food Action
Committee and Wildsight Kimberley/Cranbrook, is a food security initiative that hopes to envelop the entire cycle of food, from planting and harvesting to processing and consuming, while increasing collaboration among individuals, organizations, communities, and local government.
“One of the really exciting things it’s going to do is encourage a lot more working together between Cranbrook and Kimberley on food security,” said Shannon Duncan, communication coordinator for the Cranbrook Public Produce Garden. “That’s going to be a really big focus.”
Picture Valley Ranch, near Wardner, is struggling with erosion as the Kootenay River eats away at the property. Pictured, left to right: MLA Bill Bennett, ranchers Lonnie and Jamie Jones, and Agriculture Minister Pat Pimm.
Ag minister sees local conditions Continued from page 1
“I’ve been very frustrated with the way the Agricultural Land Commission operates,” said Bennett. “People who are sitting on a piece of land that is covered by rocks and trees, land that never should have been inside the Agricultural Land Reserve boundaries in the first place, are constantly being turned down when they want to use their own private land – land that they purchased – for purposes of maybe a small subdivision, or maybe they want to put a small campground on it, and they’ve been flummoxed by the land commission for years. “That to me doesn’t make sense. If it’s good agricultural land, yes, I get it. But in most cases in the East Kootenay, they are turned down even though their land is not fit for agriculture.” So on Monday, Bennett brought Minister Pimm to the East Kootenay to see for himself what the farming community deals with.
“We toured with the ranching community, and they were very clear: Yes, preserve good farm land, but for goodness sake, land that’s not good farm land, let the people who own it utilize it in a way that will help them economically and help our region in terms of the economic activity,” said Bennett. Part of Minister Pimm’s tour was a visit to Fort Steele Farms, where long-time owners Mike Malmberg and Sharon Mielnichuk are handing down operation of the successful family business to their daughter, Maxine. Their original request to have a 1.34 acre section of the property subdivided so they could build a home for Maxine’s young family was denied by the ALC. “They were eventually, just recently, granted the right to build a home. But I wanted the minister to see the situation first hand because I think the decision of the Land Commission
(originally) was just plain wrong,” said Bennett. “I wanted the minister to see that sometimes the decisions of the Agricultural Land Commission in fact do not benefit agriculture, because that farm would have had to be sold.” Bennett recognized that it’s hard to make a living from farming. “There is the assumption with the Agricultural Land Commission that somehow or another, these people are making a living off agriculture and they don’t; it’s really difficult. And they will be the first ones to tell you: someone in the family has to have an outside job in order for them to stay on the land. So if there are things that we can do to help them sustain themselves and stay on the land and prevent the land from being sold to somebody who is just going to use it to build a big house on it and not practice any agriculture, then we should be doing that.”
MLA Bennett also took Minister Pimm to Picture Valley Ranch on the banks of the Kootenay River near Wardner to meet owners Lonnie and Jamie Jones. The ranch has been affected by the flooded Kootenay River, with one field losing about seven feet each year for the past three years to erosion. “We wanted to show the minister that particular issue with flooding. Our best lands are close to the river in this region; they’re bottom lands,” said Bennett. To deal with erosion of agricultural land, the river would need to be diked and rip rapp installed. “It’s a very expensive fix,” said Bennett. “The province doesn’t have any extra money right now but I’m hopeful that we’re going to be able to find some way of helping. There are probably three or four ranches along the Kootenay River that are in that circumstance. This particular ranch is the worst off of any of them.”
Duncan said the dual organization partnership will be working on developing a community commercial kitchen in Cranbrook. “It’s a big project, but we’re going to be laying the ground work,” she said. “In Kimberley, we’ll be creating a similar type space (to the produce garden) using what’s been learned in Cranbrook.” They are also looking at starting a midweek farmers’ market in Kimberley. “Those are the three main pieces of it,” she said. “It’s a three-year funding, which is nice because it gives us some leverage to look for extra funding, because some of those projects are pretty big. “It’s also nice because we know we can work on it for three years in a row.” To do all of those things, she said it will take a lot of community involvement, along with some events to get people involved and get feedback. She hopes to see as much of the community involved in the process as possible. “The first event will be in September and we’re going to be having a 100-mile feast,” she said. “We’re just working out the finer details
on that, but that will be a fun kick-off to it. We’re actually going to hold that at the Cranbrook Community Produce
“It’s a big project, but we’re going to be laying the ground work. In Kimberley, we’ll be creating a similar type space (to the produce garden) using what’s been learned in Cranbrook.” Shannon Duncan Garden.” There is no date set yet for the feast. “We’re really happy to have got the funding and to be able to work on more projects for food security here,” she said. “We’re having some exciting things happen and it’s nice to be able to build on it.” Rose Soneff, community nutritionist, with Interior Health said food security is about making sure everybody has easy access to healthy, affordable and locally grown foods. Soneff works in Interior Health’s Food Security and Community Nutrition program. “Achieving food security is a team effort –
communities, businesses, organizations and governments all have an important role to play and that is why we are pleased to be able to support these exciting projects,” Soneff said. She said the funding increases the community’s ability to contribute to the growth and development of their local food system and focuses on current food security activities as well as future food security planning. “The funding can be viewed as seed money – it is aimed at long-term sustainable projects that will continue beyond the three-year period,” said Soneff. “ Health Minister Terry Lake said the Interior is fortunate to have access to a strong local agricultural community, but added “there remain barriers to access (them). Access to a healthy diet is crucial to maintaining good health, so this funding will help grow local health as well as local food production.” For more information on the projects, or to get involved, contact Duncan at 250-4277981 or email@example.com, or Jessica Windle in Kimberley at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Cranbrook RCMP and British Columbia Forest Service Wildfire Management Branch responded to a roadside grass fire early Wednesday, July 31. The fire grew to approximately 100 feet by 100 feet. Passersby stopped and helped extinguish the fire using shovels, branches, sticks and anything they could get their hands on. Shortly after an on-duty Forest Service firefighter arrived to keep the fire under control. A water truck later extinguished the fire. It’s unknown what caused the blaze. The grass fire was near the popular cycling route known as the North Star Rails to Trails.

RCMP switch back to two separate detachments for Cranbrook, Kimberley Continued from page 1 This initiative will allow the new Kimberley Detachment Commander to open the communication lines between the Kimberley detachment and the South East District in Kelowna. “It does not have any financial implication for either Cranbrook or Kimberley,” said Kimberley Mayor Ron McRae. “It has no affect, other than allowing our Kimberley RCMP detachment the ability to consult and communicate with the Regional Office directly, while maintaining support services we currently have in place.” With the recent retirement of the former Inspector in Cran-
brook, a review of the integration took place and both communities have opted to establish two independent Detachments. The two communities are different in a number of ways despite their close proximity. It is felt that these differences are better served with an independent Detachment model. “We are proud to provide policing services for a variety of municipalities in the South East District region of B.C. The B.C. RCMP is committed to providing the most effective policing services requested and required based on the needs of the individual communities and the re-
gion. We can assure the communities of Kimberley and Cranbrook will continue to be well served by the RCMP,” stated Chief Superintendent Mike Sekela. Mayor Stetski added, “Cranbrook City Council is comfortable with having separate detachments for our two cities, because we know that both detachments will continue to support one another whenever it is required.” As part of their next steps, the City of Cranbrook with the assistance of the RCMP, plan on implementing a new Staff Sergeant Detachment Commander sometime later this year.

Local NEWS Strange Burgess Shale fossil BC RCMP urge everyone to drive with caution this long weekend had worldwide relatives
Hallucigenia’s modern cousins live in jungles around the globe Submit ted
The 505-millionyear-old Burgess Shale in Canada’s Yoho National Park is famed for its bizarre marine animal fossils, most of which are thought to be found nowhere else on the planet. A paper published July 31 in the prestigious British scientific journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B suggests that, in fact, one of its most famous animals had relatives spanning the globe. Hallucigenia sparsa is a spiny, worm-like animal with numerous pairs of soft walking legs. Originally described from the Burgess Shale over a century ago, this rare creature has long baffled scientists who have struggled to better understand how it lived and if it had any relatives. Today’s study, lead by a team from the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM), University of Toronto and the University of Cambridge, reveals that Hallucigenia had relatives all over the world. Upon re-examining Hallucigenia specimens using cutting edge techniques, researchers noticed that its defensive spines strongly resemble a group of small, isolated spiny elements found worldwide that had puzzled scientists for decades, with both groups of spines having subtle surface ornamentation and a structure resembling a stack of ice cream cones. These characteristics were sufficiently unequivocal for researchers to suggest that the small isolated spines were indeed related to Hallucigenia. Along with its relatives, Hallucigenia formed a group of animals that spanned the planet’s ancient Cambrian seafloors. “From Canada to the United States, China to Mongolia, and the United Kingdom to Australia, we now know that during the Cambrian period Hallucigenia had relatives all over the world”, said Dr. Jean-Bernard Caron, Curator of Invertebrate Palaeontology at the ROM, and lead author of the study. “This study

The August long weekend is upon us and the BC RCMP would like everyone to enjoy the weekend but also remember to use your road sense and stay safe. Police will be out in force along roads and highways in an attempt to reduce the number of crashes this weekend. If you are travelling this weekend follow a few simple rules to help ensure that everyone sharing the road reaches their destination safely: • Leave plenty of distance between you and the car in front of you when travelling on the highway and follow the posted speed limits. • Make sure all passengers use their seat belts, and use approved restraining devices for pets. • Put your cell phone away, or pull over at a safe location if you need to make a call. Road conditions can
change in an instant and distracted drivers may not be able to react in time. Remember to slow down or move over if safe to do so when approaching an emergency vehicle with emergency lights activated on the side of the road. The law states that all vehicles must slow down to 40 km per hour when the posted speed limit is less than 80 km per hour, and 70 km per hour when the posted speed limit is more than 80 km per hour while passing emergency vehicles. If you plan to consume alcohol, don’t drive. Make sure that you have an alternate way to get home such as a designated driver, transit or a cab. Don’t accept a ride with anyone who consumed alcohol or has taken drugs. Remember that various factors such as fatigue, heat and diet change how alcohol and drugs affect people.

An artist’s conception of Hallucigenia sparsa, back in the day. shows that because spines were more resistant to decay, they could actually preserve more readily in many conventional fossil deposits but it is only in exceptional sites like the Burgess Shale that we find complete articulated specimens with spines attached to the rest of these delicate soft-bodied animals.” “The hard bits and pieces of animals found in conventional fossil deposits go hand in hand with the information provided by the Burgess Shale and similar ‘exceptional’ deposits – taken together, these data sources provide a unrivalled insight into the evolution and ecology of the earliest complex animals,” said Dr. Martin Smith from the University of Cam-
bridge and co-author of this study. “Hallucigenia bears a striking resemblance to its modern relatives, the velvet worms, which live in fallen logs in jungles throughout the world – though Hallucigenia long precedes the earliest forests, or indeed the earliest life on land.” Caron added that despite this difference in habitats, the Cambrian forms were probably micropredators or scavengers like their modern counterparts and probably filled similar ecological roles. Though it was discovered more than a century ago, Hallucigenia was first restudied by renowned palaeontologist Simon Conway Morris in 1977 because of its “bizarre and dream-like quality,”
much like a hallucination, and has gone on to become one of the Burgess Shale’s most recognizable creatures. Managed by Parks Canada in Yoho National Park, the Burgess Shale was recognized in 1981 as one of Canada’s first UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Now protected under the larger Rocky Mountain Parks UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Burgess Shale attracts thousands of visitors to Yoho National Park each year for guided hikes to the restricted fossil beds from July to September. Both Parks Canada and the Burgess Shale Geoscience Foundation lead hikes to the fossils. The bulk of Burgess Shale specimens are held in trust for Parks Canada at the ROM in Toronto.

SUMMER READING CHALLENGE
Courtroom drama hit and miss At first, reading this novel was like biting into a big, juicy burger. It was tasty and meaty, but ultimately I knew too many would be bad for me. “Defending Jacob” by William Landry is a legal thriller. This is a new genre for me – I haven’t read a courtroom drama before, though I watch some television series in that genre. I found the legal aspect of this novel almost therapeutic. I spend quite a lot of time in Cranbrook’s courthouse to report on criminal trials and, let me tell you, those experiences are not nearly as captivating as the trial at the centre of “Defending Jacob”. Written by a real-life former United States Assistant District Attorney, “Defending Jacob” is told from the perspective of fictional Assistant District Attorney Andrew Barber. When a 14-year-old boy is stabbed to death walking through a park on his way to school one morning, Barber is in charge of the investigation. But the plot thickens when Barber’s own son Jacob, also
14, is charged with the murder. All of a sudden, Andy is forced to play for the other team, as his family crumbles around the allegation while they desperately try to clear Jacob’s name. There are more twists in this story than in a Chubby Checker song, so I can’t say much more about the plot. Much of the novel takes place in the courtroom – during Jacob’s trial and, mysteriously, six months later during a grand jury that Andy is a witness in. It’s not until the end of the novel that the significance is revealed. But for all that scene-setting, this story is not just about the legal aspect. Really, at its core, “Defending Jacob” is about what happens to a family in a cloistered community when a child is accused of an unspeakable act. Andy and his wife Laurie each handle the pressure differently; Andy refuses to accept any information that tests his faith in his son, while Laurie starts to wonder if perhaps they have made mistakes as Jacob’s parents. The essence of “Defending
SALLY MACDONALD Jacob” is the lengths of parental love. Landry probes the limits of that love, and painfully so. At one point the author describes a nervous tic Jacob displays where he picks at a piece of skin on his finger incessantly, worrying at it until it draws blood. From my perspective, that description was a metaphor for what the trial has done to Jacob’s parents: it picks away at their trust in their son, worrying at it until they begin to fall apart. In many ways, this novel was captivating, even though it was also far-fetched. I was engrossed by the story; in fact, I read half of it in a single day. At the same time, I regret
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
becoming so engrossed in the novel because of the way it ended. The pace was... off. At first it slowly moved through Andy’s investigation then Jacob’s trial. But the story doesn’t end when the trial does, and what comes next is rapid, unexpected, and almost cruel to the reader. After a series of brutally unexpected twists, the story simply stops. You are left with more questions than answers. You are left reeling, so much so that when I finished the book right before bed, I was unable to sleep for several hours because I was tormented by unanswered questions. In the end, I feel a little bit ripped off by “Defending Jacob”. It let me down: I had hoped it would be a satisfying courtroom drama with a clear line of good versus evil. What I got was very different: an exploration of a family in crisis, which is no longer sure what is right and what is wrong. Sally MacDonald is a reporter with the Cranbrook Daily Townsman

Re: “NDP soul search going nowhere” (B.C. Views, July 30). Climate change is a reality, and bold political leadership is needed to address it. During the election campaign, New Democrats put forward a plan to expand the base of the carbon tax to include venting emissions from oil and gas operations, capturing an additional five per cent of carbon emissions in the province, but that plan didn’t include all industrial process emissions. We believe that government should work with the oil and gas sector to make sure companies pay their fair share for the emissions they produce. This is particularly important as the B.C. Liberal government pursues an aggressive schedule of LNG expansion which, if realized, will make it nearly impossible for the government to reach our legal emission reduction requirements. New Democrats will hold the government to account for their green promises, and continue to advocate for policies that help reduce emissions and spur efficiency, innovation and best practices.

I am writing this letter about an outstanding Cranbrook business. Just Liquid on Van Horne Street has changed the face of water sports in this area over the last three years. I am a resident of Jimsmith Lake and have witnessed this myself and am so happy to see our little lake utilized more fully. Jimsmith has gone from a family spot to cool off hot kids, the odd canoe ride and ice fishing in the winter, to an active lake where now not a day goes by when I don’t see many, many people on the lake — kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding and canoeing. The change has been phenomenal — it’s exciting just to watch from the sidelines. It is not unusual to see Rob and his staff in the water teaching children to kayak. As well as teaching classes on all equipment, Rob and his staff organize community paddles every night of the
week. They offer youth group, white water paddle, community lake paddle, community river paddle, and scuba. This summer, Parks Canada has asked Just Liquid to do workshops and demonstrations in our local provincial parks one day a week. More than that, though, Rob Porter is an outstanding corporate citizen. I have come to know Rob from his participation in the annual Haiti Auction, and I know he has generously donated to many, many local events and causes. In this day of internet shopping, we need to remember the value that local business provides us in expertise, selection, and the continual community involvement, that no online store or cross border shopping can. As I write this letter, I decided to take a look at Just Liquid’s website and read their mission statement. It reads as follows: “Our mission is to be ambassadors in the development and support of active lifestyles through all types of water sports in the East Kootenay and to provide all-encompassing water sport retail, rental and instruction via knowledgeable, approachable, and enthusiastic staff. Also to maintain our regional reputation for unparalleled expertise and water sports and continue to develop the East Kootenay water sports community.” In my opinion, Just Liquid has met and surpassed all these goals. Check out Jimsmith Lake someday – you’ll be surprised! Oh – and Rob, his staff and friends also find time to compete on weekends and more often than not, place on the podium. Great ambassadors for our great area! I wonder – where does all that energy come from? Norma Juozaitis Jimsmith Lake
Where is the historic connection? My wife and I recently had the opportunity to visit the fine city of Walla Walla, Washington, and were pleasantly surprised by the vibrant nature of the town. Live music, great food, a wonderful museum and a thriving wine industry all caught our attention. This left me wondering about whatev-
er happened to the historic connection between Walla Walla and the Kootenay region. Several years ago I authored a book called Living in the Shadow of Fisher Peak, which chronicled the gold rush fever that consumed the west in the 1860s and saw Walla Walla become the commercial hub of the northwest U.S. On a cold winter’s day in March of 1864, California 49’er Jack Fisher and a contingent of men rode out of Walla Walla and headed 400 miles due north to the Wild Horse gold fields near the present day heritage town of Fort Steele. It is said that the subsequent gold strike, which produced an estimated $15 to $30 million in gold, funded the startup of the Boyer-Baker National Bank, now a fixture of downtown Walla Walla. As I wrote in my book: “Evidently there was so much gold making its way to Walla Walla, the Dorsey S. Baker Company quickly filled their one safe to capacity. The company then took to filling empty nail kegs with gold dust. It is unlikely that the miners, who were depositing their valuable gold there, were ever told about this stop-gap method of banking. From these humble beginnings, the Boyd-Baker National Bank of Walla Walla sprang forth.” So my question is: Where is the Cranbrook–Walla Walla connection today? How about a sister city agreement between the two cities to promote modern day tourism trade and commerce? How about a Chamber of Commerce exchange that would build on our common historical heritage? How about a summit of the mayors of the two cities? If you would like to read more about the historical connection between Walla Walla and Cranbrook and the Kootenay region visit the gift shop at Fort Steele and pick up a copy of my book, Living in the Shadow of Fisher Peak, or it is also available at any local bookseller. Next year, 2014, is the 150th anniversary of the discovery of gold on Wild Horse Creek and the development of Walla Walla as the commercial hub of the early Pacific Northwest interior. I personally think it is time to re-establish this important historic link to the benefit of both our communities. Keith Powell Cranbrook

Special Olympians return home with medals TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor
A group of Special Olympians have returned with some hardware following the 2013 edition of the B.C. Summer Games in Langley. Representing the Cranbrook and Kimberley region, over 26 ath-
letes joined up with roughly another 65 to compete for the Kootenay area at the Summer Games. Athletes competed hard and were rewarded with individual and team honours. The softball team won a bronze medal in
the B division, while the bowlers also captured bronze as well. Individually, swimmer Robbie Paolini earned a bronze medal in the 100-metre backstroke and 100-metre breaststroke, while Mark Skelton won bronze in the 25-metre backstroke.
Organizers of the event said it was a huge success and the largest-ever Special Olympics in provincial history. “I think the 2013 SOBC Summer Games a was a great success,” said SOBC chair Pam Keith. “It was well-organized
and very well orchestrated overall. The athletes and volunteer coaches were so inspiring both on and off the playing fields and we so appreciated the 1,200 volunteers who worked so hard to deliver such a rewarding and memorable experience for every-
Blue Jays stand pat on trade deadline day NEIL DAVIDSON Canadian Press
TORONTO - The underachieving Blue Jays, movers and shakers during the off-season, were quiet on non-waiver trade deadline day Wednesday. Toronto GM Alex Anthopoulos says while says his team, 49-57 heading into the day’s play, needs to improve, there was nothing that made sense. He cited “some traction” on two possible deals, one of which fell apart last week while the other collapsed Tuesday morning. “Other than that it was pretty quiet overall,” he told a media
conference call. He acknowledged the team was most interested in a starting pitcher and middle infield help. “Then there were some other ideas thrown at us that were larger concepts but they weren’t things we needed to rush to do now,” he said. The deadline has now passed but teams can still make a deal during the season. But moves are more difficult since the players in question have to pass waivers. Also players traded after Aug. 31, can’t make the post-season roster. Anthopoulos said
“There’s no question we need to make improvements, we need to get better. “The results and the standings speak for themselves.” Alex Anthopoulos
while he didn’t expect a lot of action leaguewide in August, some talks might turn into trades in the off-season. “There’s no question we need to make improvements, we need to get better.” he
said. “The results and the standings speak for themselves.” “I still feel good about a lot of our players,” he added, “but like anything, from year to year, you evaluate and some evaluations change. The way that the season plays out each year, you have to adjust accordingly. “There’s no question we’re going to have to make some changes and improve the roster in various ways but there weren’t those opportunities for us in terms of deals that made sense right now.” In the off-season, Toronto acquired R.A.
Dickey, Mark Buehrle and Josh Johnson as well as position players Melky Cabrera, Maicer Izturis, Emilio Bonifacio and Mark DeRosa. Anthopoulos said the deals the team was working on in recent days never made it into the media. “The things that were out there from the media perspective, I’d say almost all of them were completely false.” Veteran reliever Darren Oliver was seen as one Jay who might be made available but Anthopoulos, speaking generally, said the demand didn’t meet the supply of left-handed relievers.
one.” Nearly 600 medals were award in 11 sports as athletes from across B.C. and the Yukon put on a stirring display of the Special Olympics spirit of true sportsmanship, inclusion, inspiration and joy. “The courage and de-
termination with which these athletes competed in every event was remarkable to behold,” said Games chair Arne Olson. “There is no limit to how hard they try. And the Games showed there is no limit to what they can do. It was incredible to watch.”
NFL Pro Bowl rosters to be selected by fans through a draft
NEW YORK - The NFL Pro Bowl rosters for next year will be selected in a draft by team captains, with Deion Sanders and Jerry Rice assisting as alumni captains. The NFL will abandon the AFC vs. NFC format that has been in place since 1971. The league says Wednesday that fan voting will determine the players in the draft pool. The draft will be televised by the NFL Network on Jan. 22. The game will be played Jan. 26 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii. Other changes are coming to the game, too. The ball will change hands at the end of each quarter, which could double the opportunities for two-minute drills. Kickoffs (and return specialists) will be eliminated - teams will start on their own 25yard line. Defences will be allowed to play cover-2 and press coverage in addition to man, and several clock tweaks have been instituted to speed up the game and prompt offensive play. Associated Press

Pospisil looking to make a statement at Rogers Cup Monte Ste wart Canadian Press
HALLOWED HALLS: Local hockey coach Colin Patterson was inducted into the B.C. Hockey Hall of Fame on Friday at a ceremony in Penticton. Patterson has deep roots in the Cranbrook and Kimberley area, first as a player before moving on to a coaching career at the local, provincial and national level. Patterson has worked with teams locally such as the Kimberley women’s hockey team, just as he began his coaching career, to the Cranbrook Colts Jr. B team, to guest coaching with Team Canada’s Spengler Cup team in the 1980s. Above—Hockey Canada president Bob Nicholson (left) and retired NHL forward Paul Kariya (centre) join Patterson for a picture at the induction ceremony.
WEST VANCOUVER, B.C. - Vasek Pospisil would have no trouble filling a scrapbook - or an online photo album - featuring his accomplishments this year. The Canadian tennis star has been piling up memories, but he still has a chance for more unforgettable moments between now and the end of September. Pospisil will compete in the Rogers Cup in Montreal next week as he continues to tune up his game in preparation for Canada’s historic Davis Cup semifinal against Serbia in Belgrade in September. “I’m hoping to get a lot of matches here this week and confidence to build for the Rogers Cup,” said Pospisil, who is playing in the Odlum Brown VanOpen, a United States Tennis
Association event, in West Vancouver before he heads to Montreal. “It’s obviously a very exciting next couple of months for me.” Pospisil, a 23-yearold Vernon, B.C., native who now calls Vancouver home, will head into the Rogers Cup looking to build on a season in which he has helped Canada reach unprecedented heights on the international stage. Canada earned a berth in the Davis Cup semifinals for the first time ever with its quarter-final win over Italy in Vancouver in April. The quarter-final berth was Canada’s first in the Davis Cup’s modern era, resulting from a win over Spain’s injury-riddled world No. 1 squad in February, also in Vancouver. Pospisil is a candidate for Davis Cup singles and doubles selection.

The Nitros have made more summer moves, adding some additional out of town talent to the roster. Charlie Dagostin, a big 6’1” defenceman out of the Yukon, has committed to the team, after getting noticed by general manager Rick Allen at a tournament in Edmonton last season with his midget team, the Ft. St. John Trackers. Dagostin said being approached by Allen caught him by surprise. “He offered me a card and I decided to take it,” said Dagostin. “It was kind of out of nowhere, I wasn’t really expecting anything like that to happen. “Definitely a pleasant surprise.” Dagostin will join fellow out-
of-towner Mackenzie Hollis, who was signed earlier in the summer, on the blue line and he’s eager to show what he can do. He played in the Northern Alberta Midget AA League last year with the NE B.C. and Yukon Trackers, scoring four goals and posting eight assists in 28 games. “I’m a defensive D-man by heart, naturally,” said Dagostin. “I’m really trying to get my offensive game going, try to create some more chances—it’s always fun to score. “But naturally, I’m a defensive D-man.” As a kid, Dagostin idolized hockey legend Bobby Orr because his dad is a huge Boston Bruins fans. “But the way I play, I think I may play more like Duncan Keith, maybe,” he added. Though Dagostin played for a
team based out of Ft. St. John, he hails from Dawson City, growing up in a cabin just outside of town, in a place he described as “the boonies”. “We lived in the boonies—off the grid, we didn’t have any running water or power,” said Dagostin, with a laugh. “A pioneer lifestyle, I guess some people would call it.” Allen noticed Dagostin last year while up in Edmonton, and was impressed by his demeanour and defensive abilities on the ice. “It’s pretty good for us that somebody wants to come that far to be a Dynamiter,” said Allen. “He committed to coming, before I committed to him. Once I found out that he wanted to come down and was willing to drive all that way to take his chances…I think we need to have a bit of pioneer experience in us, too.”
A-Rod silent as MLB drug suspension looms Associated Press
TAMPA, Fla. - Alex Rodriguez didn’t stop to talk with reporters after his rehabilitation session at the team’s minor league complex, two days before Major League Baseball is likely to suspend the New York Yankees third baseman for his connection to a clinic accused of distributing banned perfor-
mance-enhancing drugs. Coming back from January hip surgery and a late-July strained quadriceps, Rodriguez increased the intensity of his leg workout by taking on-field batting practice and running the bases at the Yankees’ minor league complex. A-Rod felt tightness in the quad before the Tri-
ple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre game on July 20. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said he will play in a simulated game Thursday at the minor league complex. Rodriguez could be sent to Double-A Trenton for a new rehab assignment on Friday. Scranton is on the road. “Tomorrow’s simu-
lated game is the first step in that process and then I just don’t want to get anything past tomorrow just because of the weather, but the plan would be for him to be in a rehab game on Friday,” Cashman said. A suspension would prevent Rodriguez from playing in any major or minor league games unless the penalty is stayed.

Cochrane wins bronze at world championships C anadian Press
BARCELONA, Spain - Ryan Cochrane had to claw his way to Canada’s first podium finish in the pool at the 2013 FINA World Championships. The Victoria native won his third straight medal in the men’s 800metre freestyle Wednesday, charging down American Connor Jaeger on the final 100 metres to win the bronze medal in seven minutes 43.70 seconds. The 24-year-old won silver in the event at the 2011 worlds in Shanghai, and bronze in 2009 in Rome. China’s Sun Yang took the gold in 7:41.36. Cochrane, who came an agonizing fourth in the 400-metre freestyle Sunday, was edged by American Michael McBroom by 0.1 seconds for silver. “The touches aren’t my friend this meet,” Cochrane said. “It was hard getting fourth place. It’s a frustrating place to be but with a
world championships anything can happen. There’s so many great competitors that in this 800 I think anybody had a chance at the podium. “To know I could claw my way back onto the podium is great and we have the 1,500 to look forward to after this.” Randy Bennett, head coach of the national team and Cochrane’s coach at the Victoria Academy of Swimming, characterized the race as “interesting.” “Five guys in it all the way and it’s not that normal in the distance freestyle,” Bennett said. “It’s usually a two- or three-horse race but it was interesting - he could have been fifth. “It’s great racing for him to get his hand on the wall in the third place position and be aware that he had to go in the last 100 as hard as he did, so we’ll take the medal and run with it but you always want a little bit more.” The medal is Cana-
da’s fifth overall at the championships, and second in swimming. Victoria’s Eric Hedlin won a silver medal in the 5-km open water race earlier in the twoweek event, which also features water polo, diving, synchronized swimming and a new high diving discipline. Also Wednesday, American Missy Franklin held off a late challenge from Federica Pelligrini to win the 200-metre freestyle. The win came after Franklin pulled of the 50-metre backstroke, ending a possible bid for eight gold medals at a single major event. She also has gold medals here from the 4x100 free relay and the 100 backstroke. The 18-year-old entered eight events, giving her a chance to match Michael Phelps as the only swimmers to win that many events at a major championship. But, after a tough double on Tuesday and a lacklustre showing in
the morning preliminaries, Franklin and her coach, Todd Schmitz, decided to scratch the 50 backstroke - a non-Olympic event that she swims mainly for fun, though she did take bronze at the 2011 worlds in Shanghai. There was only a 20-minute break between the semifinals of the 50 back and the final of the 200 free, and the latter was much more important to Franklin. She just missed a medal in that event at the London Olympics, losing out for third by a hundredth of a second. “We decided that maybe the risk kind of outdid the rewards,” Franklin said. “So we decided not to do it. It was fun to swim it this morning but I’m really happy with the decision to scratch and just do this.” France’s Camille Muffat went out hard, leading after the first lap and 0.75 under the world-record pace.

Franklin edged ahead at the midway point and held off hard-charging Federica Pelligrini of the Italy, the world-record holder, to win in 1 minute, 54.81 seconds. Pelligrini claimed silver, 0.33 behind the winner, while Muffat settled for the bronze. The worlds continue through Sunday. Cochrane is back in action in the 1,500-metre freestyle heats Saturday. He has back-to-back world championships silver medals in that event, along with the 2012 Olympic silver. “The field is getting faster and faster and I think one of the mistakes we made (in the 800) is playing into everybody else’s race tactics,” Cochrane said. “Seeing that the field was so even shows we were all trying hard but maybe not executing the race plans we wanted to. In the 1,500 you can have front-end speed, back-end speed, people who have different technical sides.”

Penguins welcome public back to partially reopened Calgary Zoo C anadian Press
CALGARY — The popular Penguin Plunge was one of the exhibits on view as the Calgary Zoo welcomed visitors Wednesday for the first time since the animal park was heavily damaged in last month’s
flooding. The zoo’s partial reopening also included the Canadian Wilds and Prehistoric Park displays. One of the few bright spots for the zoo since the devastating floods in June has been the birth
of a baby gentoo penguin July 7. It is the first penguin hatched at the zoo since the Penguin Plunge opened in February 2012. The reopening only affects about one-third of the park. The rest won’t be open until at
least December. The park is located on St. George’s Island, near where the Elbow and Bow rivers meet. Forty buildings, including the African Savannah exhibit, were severely damaged. The disaster has
Local kidney patient supports Cranbrook Walk, August 11 Submitted
Kidney patient Thom McCaughey is this year’s regional honoree for The Kidney Walk in Cranbrook. Thom will represent The Kidney Walk and through his story help put a face to this disease that is often under recognized and undetectable in its early stages. The event takes place Sunday, August 11, at Confederation Park in Cranbrook, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The annual Kidney Walk supports individuals, like Thom, and their families who are affected by kidney disease by raising awareness about the seriousness of this disease as well as funds to help provide critical
programs and services. Kidney disease affects one in 10 Canadians and currently has no cure. Twenty communities across B.C. are championing The Kidney Walk. These extraordinary grassroots events feature live entertainment, prizes, fundraising barbeques, silent auctions and more. But most importantly walkers, runners and paddlers alike come out and show their support for kidney patients and their families. For Thom, being a part of The Kidney Walk and supporting The Kidney Foundation is important. Recently diagnosed with kidney disease, Thom is hoping that through his role with The Kidney Walk he will
become more involved and better connected to the kidney community. Thom has had diabetes for 25 years and is also a cancer survivor. He just recently discovered his kidneys were functioning at 14 per cent and is currently on dialysis. He believes it is important to get checked out by a doctor regularly, because, “you never know if something that you think is small can become a serious problem.” Since 2008, thousands of participants and volunteers have helped The Kidney Walk campaign raise over $860,000 for kidney patients in B.C. This year the goal is to raise $340,000 province-wide.
been hard on the facility’s pocketbook — $160,000 a day in lost revenue. The zoo was forced to move 160 animals to higher ground at the height of the flood. Zebras were moved to the zoo’s wildlife conserva-
tion centre outside the city. Two hippos almost escaped when high water levels lifted them close to the top of their enclosure. Giraffes that were standing up to their bellies in cold water were ailing after the flood, but
recovered. Two peacocks, a pot-bellied pig and some fish died. The zoo soon realized that the South American exhibit was too damaged to be restored. Its animals are being shipped to other accredited zoos in Canada.

Jamaica a kaleidoscope of cultures
Uniglobe’s Sarah Murphy explores the tropical Caribbean Island
amaica is the third largest Caribbean Island, and the largest English-speaking Caribbean Island, however the majority of the population speak Jamaican Creole, called “patois”. The average temperature is 27 degrees, and only differs by about five degrees all year. The ocean is clear, the sandy beaches white, and snorkelling is fantastic. Jamaica is extremely mountainous, with the highest point being Blue Mountain Peak at an elevation of over 2,200 metres. (Don’t miss trying their famous Blue Mountain Coffee.) Jamaica has long been noted for the richness and diversity of its culture and the quality of its artists, and it is world-renowned for reggae music. The
unique music was made famous by legendary Jamaican Bob Marley. The cuisine, religious practices, art, music, dance, and language reveal the kaleidoscope of cultures that contribute to Jamaica’s unique flavour. With convenient, direct flights available from Calgary, you can arrive in Montego Bay in less than six hours. Favourite Places and Attractions Negril: With its seven-mile stretch of white sand beach, it is known as the most laid-back place in Jamaica. To preserve its natural beauty, the law is that no building can be higher than the tallest palm tree. Fern Gully: This three-mile roadway winds through a canopy of lush forest foliage.
Nine Mile: This town is the home and final resting place of reggae superstar Bob Marley. Black River: Jamaica’s longest navigable river gets its name from the colour of its peat river bed. It is home to mangrove forests, crocodiles, and many bird species. Appleton Rum Estate: This attraction is not to be missed. YS Falls: This area has beautiful scenery, with cascading falls, natural pools for swimming, and a zip-line overhead. Rick’s Café: Perched atop cliffs at Negril’s west end, the cafe is open for both food and drink daily. It offers amazing sunsets, live music, and professional cliff jumping displays. After visiting Jamaica three times myself, I can personally say that it is one of my favourite Caribbean destinations. For more information, call the girls at Uniglobe Travel at 250-4268975, or visit 24 10th Avenue South, Cranbrook.
The waters of Jamaica are crystal clear, the people are easy going.
NOTICE Bring your used stamps to 822 Cranbrook St., Cranbrook, BC This is a year round fundraiser by the Eastern Star for funds to supply Cancer Dressings. Please bring stamps with a 1/4” around the stamp to the Townsman for Skip Fennessy who picks them up.
Thank you for your support!
Music is an integral part of Jamaican culture.

Keep reaching out for new information. The more you know, the better you will be able to handle a situation. Make a call to someone at a distance; you could get a fresh perspective from this person. You also respect his or her judgment. Tonight: Get ready for a surprise. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You’ll want to understand where someone else is coming from. You could be taken aback by a series of independent and erratic actions. You also might want to see a situation differently. A discussion with a close associate will result in a change of attitude. Tonight: Be spontaneous. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Defer to others, and you’ll find out what is needed in order to balance someone’s demands. Sometimes this person makes sense to you, but he or she has a tendency to do the unexpected. Ask questions if need be. Tonight: Observe a loved one’s spontaneous behavior. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Listen well to news, and be open to a different approach. An
element in the way you structure your day could be subject to change. At first, you might feel uneasy about this, but eventually you’ll see the positive benefits of the alteration. Tonight: Run some errands. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) While everyone might seem very serious and determined, you’ll have an open mind for the possibility of a change. You also could see many more benefits and positive outcomes than others do. A new friendship could be a source of excitement. Tonight: Let the good times roll. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You’ll need to deal with an important financial matter; try not to shake up the status quo in a negative way. Taking a risk might be OK now, if you can sustain a loss. Only you know for sure. A family matter or personal issue dominates the moment. Tonight: Happiest at home.

Rhymes with Orange
By Hillary B. Price
Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I’m a senior in college and live at home. My parents, especially my father, are controlling and overly attached to me. I’ve had enough and am planning on moving away the second I graduate, but my family doesn’t seem to get this. They tell me about graduate schools and full-time job opportunities in or near our town. They’ve offered to let me live rent-free in the house if I stay in the area after college. These “suggestions” are starting to pile up, and graduation seems so far away. I can’t let myself fall into the same trap that got me to stay with them at the start of college. How do I say I’m leaving for good? -- Nobody’s Baby Boy Dear Nobody: Your parents don’t “get it” because they see no indication that you are leaving anytime soon. They’ll believe it when it happens. While many kids would appreciate their parents’ offer to stay rentfree, we agree that you should strike out on your own. Loving parents guide their children to be independent. You don’t need to keep saying you are moving out. Simply save your money and find a place you can afford, in whatever city you prefer. Research job and educational opportunities. What you cannot do is expect your parents to cover your expenses when you no longer live at home. Good luck. Dear Annie: I’m a married female in my early 50s and haven’t had a real friend in more than 20 years. It’s not a question of meeting people. They just don’t seem to gravitate toward me. I’m considerate and clean and have a good sense of humor. I’m a bit on the shy and quiet side, but I’m friendly and a sympathetic listener. I have often made the first move and invited someone to join me for lunch. They accept and seem to enjoy our time together, but they never reciprocate. At work, everyone seems to buddy up with someone else, and though everyone appears to like me, I have no buddy of my own. I’ve been to counseling twice and have read books on making friends, and neither has helped. I appreciate that I have a good marriage, a good job, great kids and a nice home, but the absence of just one good friend saddens me greatly. Do you have any advice? -- Lonely for Friends Dear Lonely: It can take a long time to get to know someone in middle age, when friendships are already entrenched from work, church and community. You would need to make a greater effort, inviting someone for lunch several times, before the comfort level promotes a closer friendship. In the meantime, please look into the Red Hat Society (redhatsociety.org) and meetup. com for people in your area who are actively looking to make new friends. Dear Annie: Your answer to “Loved the Show, Disliked the Seat,” the person whose seat at a Broadway show was partially taken over by a “rather large” woman, was totally off the mark. You said to show tolerance. That’s absurd. The person whose personal seating space is being invaded needs to go to an usher or, better yet, to management and request another seat. Chair arms at performance spaces are there for a reason. If someone feels that he or she needs more space than the establishment has allotted, he or she should make arrangements for special seating. Obese people are required to buy two seats on airplanes. Why not do the same for theaters and sports stadiums? -- Been Sat On at a Performance, Too Dear Sat On: Going to an usher or management is a perfectly valid way to address this. Unfortunately, it usually necessitates missing part of the show to locate someone in authority and finding equally desirable, unoccupied seats elsewhere. Charging double for theater seats is an argument we don’t have space for here. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

William, Bill to all of us, grew up in Killarney Manitoba. During his school years Bill excelled both scholastically and as an athlete with hockey and golf being his favorite sports. Bill had two careers, the first as an RCMP, his favorite, and a second career as a Land Agent for Trans Alta Utilities, which was safer. Bill retired after 24 years from the RCMP with the rank of Staff Sargent and worked another 17 years with Trans Alta Utilities before retiring to Kimberley British Columbia. As mentioned, Bill enjoyed hockey and played at a high level and shooting low scores on the golf course but disliked being shot at while working. Bill`s sense of humor laced generally with sarcasm and his steadfast convictions provided the framework to work as an RCMP Officer. As the old saying goes, Bill would treat a total stranger better than his loved ones at times, helping someone in trouble, he barely knew, was common. These actions often left a confusing message for his family but left no doubt he had compassion.
Curry & Agnes Purdy
This was also evident in Bill`s commitment to helping the communities he lived in, building a healthy environment for children by organizing or supporting sporting events from hockey to baseball and establishing junior golf programs so children had a good environment to grow.
Kimberley Nordic Centre Please no gifts.
Bill`s compassion for animals ran equally strong, often seen feeding the ducks at Elizabeth Lake and taking his dogs Leia and Leo everywhere he and Shirley went.
