A summer day in the life of Cranbrook



Trevor Lundy is pictured performing with a backup herd of the Artsy Urban Deer down at the Cranbrook and District Art’s Council’s “Art in The Park,” Saturday, August 24. A host of arts-based activities and displays were part of the Arts Council’s 40th anniversary celebration — which included the winning selections in the Artsy Urban Deer contest and subsequent auction. For a complete list of results and a special photo feature, see Tuesday’s Daily Townsman.

Guess who’s coming to dinner? Alice Cooper bringing his “Raise The Dead” tour to Western Financial Place in Cranbrook November 13 B A R RY CO U LT E R

One of the most renowned personalities in rock is bringing his legendary show to the stage at Western Financial Place. Alice Cooper, “the Godfather of Shock Rock,” whose career spans five decades, will be bringing his “Raise the Dead” tour to Cranbrook on Nov. 13. Tickets go on sale Sept. 4. According to Kootenay Concert Connection President, FJ Hurtak, Cooper’s ap-

pearance has been in the works for quite some time. “My business partner and I have been working with Chris New from the City of Cranbrook, and our agent for well over a year now trying to schedule a date and negotiate a contract for Cranbrook,” Hurtak said. “Alice Cooper is one of the most sought after artists in the world and it’s very difficult at times to put together a package that is workable for all parties. Every

time we thought we had it locked up, a routing problem or some other issue would cause the deal to go sideways. With a great deal of perseverance at all levels we finally managed to do it. “We are so pleased to bring another artist of this calibre to the East Kootenay following in the footsteps of Bob Dylan, Johnny Reid, and Randy Travis.”

n Saturday, July 20, I set out at dawn on a photo safari, hoping to depict a summer day in the life of Cranbrook. I finished up 18 hours and 120 kilometres later, having taken some 260 photos of what turned out to be about 40 different events, and left with the feeling that I had really only just scratched the surface. Summer in Cranbrook has always struck me as a sleepy season, but I learned the opposite is true, that this town buzzes with activity, private and public, as befits a dynamic small city. There is something going on everywhere you turn, at all hours of the day — all those hours I was active anyway. After much consideration we pruned “A Summer Day” down to 40 images, roughly one every half hour, starting with the baking at Max’s Place and finishing at Dewey’s Pub, rocking out to the band Dewey Cheatem and Howe. We’re running this photo safari over the course of this week, starting today on pages 8 and 9 — two pages a day Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. But as I said, we feel we’ve only scratched the surface of what comprises a summer day in Cranbrook. It was certainly the most fun 18-hour work shift I’ve had. And I’d like to thank all those individuals, businesses and parties that welcomed my approach. I especially want to offer congratulations to Carly Jo and Aaron, Liz and David and Nicole and Cody — whose weddings I came across — and to Jace, who celebrated his birthday on that day. “Three Weddings and a Birthday” became the working title of this project. We hope you enjoy “A Summer Day in Cranbrook,” running this week. We’re looking forward to seeing what a winter’s day in Cranbrook looks like, from top to bottom.

New manager takes helm at EK SPCA Brenna Baker is taking the leash at the Cranbrook SPCA and has lot of plans and goals for making it the second best place for animals to be – other than their soon-to-be-found forever homes raising goal should be double or triple because of the needed upgrades to the centre. There are a handful of hardworking volunteers currently who are there cleaning and caring for the animals. Baker says they also have some drop in volunteers who come in and play with the cats and walk the dogs. “I am a huge supporter of volunteers and I appreciate absolutely everything that they do.” “I really want the public to feel welcome out here — that they can come in and that they can volunteer. I need to grow the volunteer base again — that is another one of my goals, to get people volunteering on a regular basis because we are non-profit, we rely on our volunteers.” Donations don’t always have to be of time or money. Baker says another way to help out is by donating old toy dogs, scratching poles or stainless steel bowls for food and water. “I really believe that if the community was more aware of what we need that they would come together and support us.” For more information about what the SPCA does and how you can help out, you can check their website at and to support the East Kootenay SPCA or to see the animals waiting for their new home call 250-426-6751.

amazing and just so much better for the animals. “Our building is not that old, having been built in the 1980s, and it’s great. But we have grown so much.” There are also smaller but crucial issues that need funding. “We need to upgrade all of our cat cages, for example,” Baker said. “Right now they are made of wood, and we really need to get the larger, stainless steel cages, so that their care is better.” Baker explains that one of the biggest expenses that the Eat Kootenay SPCA has is the vet bills. When they receive the animals in need, they update each one of the corresponding shots, spaying and neuter them if need be, as well as they take on the costs of any medical problem each animal may have. One of the messages that Baker wants people to be aware of is that the centre is not provincially funded and runs on donations and volunteers. Events like the Paws for a Cause are the ones that bring in the donations they need to be able to make the SPCA centre the second best place for the animals to live — the first being the new forever-homes that the critters will find. This year’s goal for the Paws for a Cause is $15,000 but Baker says that in reality that fund-

The SPCA now has a new manager, Brenna Baker, who has lots of plans in store for the East Kootenay SPCA branch. Lately, the SPCA is filled to the brim. Baker says they have 91 pets registered and although some are in foster care, that there are still 10 full grown dogs that need homes, a few little dogs, and more than 50 cats — mostly kittens, but some adult cats as well. One of Baker’s main goal is to provide education for the public on proper pet care and the importance of spaying and neutering pets. “I just want to raise a lot of awareness — not just in the Cranbrook area, but in the whole East Kootenay, on how important that SPCA is,” Baker said. “My staff and volunteers do such a great job, but we just don’t have the funds for some of the needs.” Baker said that detailed education on pet care would help prevent the abandonment of pets, as well as future owner and pet problems. “I want to raise funds so that we can actually hire an education coordinator, who goes out to the schools throughout the whole East Kootenay and educates kids and parents on the importance of spaying and neutering and the work that the SPCA does. We don’t just look after cats and dogs but that we also look after farm animals and their welfare.” Baker has more pressing matters with the SPCA practically maxed out of room, the more immediate goals include general maintenance, feeding and vet care. “Ultimately I would like to see this building improved one day – that’s my whole goal,” she said. “I know that Maple Ridge just got a brand new building.

Alice Cooper coming to Cranbrook Nov. 13 Continued from page 1 Alice Cooper — born Vincent Furnier — came out of Detroit with the band of the same name in the late 1960s, winning an international reputation with such hits as “I’m Eighteen,” “School’s Out,” “Under My Wheels,” “No More Mr. Nice Guy” and other songs, now considered classics. Furnier adopted the band’s name as his own

name in the 1970s and began a solo career with the 1975 concept album Welcome to My Nightmare. In 2011 he released Welcome 2 My Nightmare, his 19th album as a solo artist, and his 26th album in total. Cooper set the precendent for such bands as KISS, NY Dolls, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, Motley Crue, Slipnot and Rob Zom-

bie. He’s widely credited for having invented the concept of the rock concert as theatre, and he still brings that energy to his shows on an active touring schedule. With a schedule that includes six months of every year on the road, Alice Cooper is bringing his own brand of rock psycho-drama to fans both old and new, and enjoying it as much as the audience does.

As he heads back on the concert trail again this fall, Alice insists he’s still motivated to continue touring and making albums, as well as making time for such side projects as Coopers’s Town (his Phoenix-based restaurant/ sports bar), his Alice Cooper, Golf Monster book, and his Nights with Alice Cooper radio show syndicated worldwide on over 100 radio stations.

“There’s nothing standing in my way, why not”? he said. “It’s what I love doing...and no one puts on a show like ours, musically and visually.” Alice Cooper was in the class of 2011 inductees into the worldwide Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Fame. Cooper was singled out at the ceremony as the original self-proclaimed rock villain, who brought a new level of music and

visual theatrics to arenas. An Evening with Alice Cooper, “The Raise the Dead Tour”, stops in Cranbrook on November 13th at 7;30 p.m. Tickets for the event go on sale at the Arena box office at 10

a.m., Sept 4th, or you can order by phone at.250-426-SEAT, or on line All seating is reserved and pricing for tickets ranges from $47.25 to $78.75, including gst (service charges extra).

‘It came to me in a dream’ Interview with artist Cristine Borgogelli

everie’ is Cristina Borgogelli’s plan for a viewer interactive art installation in the Gallery at Centre 64 which will be on display from September 4 to 29 with an opening reception, to which the public is invited, from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept.7. I’m always a little hesitant when the term ‘installation art’ comes up. Don’t get me wrong, some are stunning and beautiful and others are just a dumpster, as featured in the Museum of Modern Art in Montreal. No kidding, an actual dumpster! They may have modified it a bit, but who cares? It’s a dumpster. However, back on track; its OK, Cristina’s plan does not involve a dumpster. I asked Cristina what her inspiration was for this exhibition? She started laughing and replied, “It came to me in a dream”, which is not entirely untrue. She had been meditating about it subconsciously for a while. She explained her philosophy for this show. “I want to present an exhibition that is more conceptual than just looking at it. It’s not just about dreams you have at night, its hopes and dreams, and taking a step in signaling an intention about your future. We don’t think about that when we sleep.” This sounds more intriguing than dumpster art. I like it already. ‘Reverie’ is about rediscovering dreams and

“making them more of a ritual, understanding where they’re coming from.” It’s an exploration of spirituality in design and finding out if there is any truth to beliefs or superstitions that surround sleep. It’s about getting back to spirituality and nature and away from the structure of modern society. Cristina Borgogelli is of Italian heritage and a first generation Canadian. Her family hails from Ontario, their first settlement in Canada. She moved out west in 2005 and has been living in Kimberley since 2008. From 1999-2002, Cristina lived in Italy where she studied exhibition and fashion design at the Istituto Marangoni & Domus Academy in Milan. I have no doubt she’ll be bringing a little Italian flair to this show. She also worked for Fabrica in Northern Italy. It is a place where designers under 25 years of age are invited to create conceptual designs for graphics, products, industry and commerce. With this as a base, she is trying to “engage the viewer to think about the concept in a different way and give a more experience- based exhibition”. Influenced by the ideas of the late artist/designer Tobias Wong, Cristina described how “he took objects he made and used them to questions things; questioning why we have attachments to things and why we appreciate or do things”.

Borgogelli Continued from page 1 He would want to see the evolution of a piece. For example he made a pill from flakes of gold, with the question, if you ate it, would you feel wealthy? She also described how the process of creativity feels to her. “To get back to the rhythm of creating for me is like meditation, also disconnecting from technology and getting back to nature and working with my hands and not just my brain.” I had a preview of what Cristina is working on for the show. The original concept of a walk-in three dimensional dream-catcher has morphed into interactive pieces in which she asks viewers to participate by writing down dreams and nightmares in the Dream Matrix. She is also making dream catchers for the show with found objects, like pieces of wood from the lakeshore, feathers, and recycled yarn. Another feature that I found interesting is her idea of Totem Sheets. She will display 4 large, brightly coloured fabric art sheets with animals on them, representing a concept. The idea is that if you actually slept under one of these sheets “how would (the concept) manifest (itself) in your life?” She has chosen for herself a fish totem, to represent flow. The interesting interactive element to this is her invitation to the viewer to “write down a word they would like to meditate on while sleeping, or a word that will help them to sleep better”. She believes the act of “sleeping under a concept” would be like an alternative to journal writing each night. This is Cristina’s first solo show, “I wanted to do this for myself, to be creative and commit to something, to come up with an idea and actually do it. “I’m just putting it out there and you can totally hate it!” Somehow, I don’t think we will hate it. What’s to hate about getting back to nature, exploring spirituality and the direction of your future through the medium of dreams? The exhibition will be open from 1 to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays throughout September.

Moir Park gets 26 new trees A r n e P e t rys h e n Townsman Staff

Moir Park will be a little greener with news that 26 new trees were planted last week. The trees come thanks to a grant through BC Hydro’s Regreening Program. The grant from BC Hydro was for $3,500, while the City of Cranbrook provided $7,000 to support the tree planting initiative at Moir Park.

“The new trees assist the City in continuing its program of greening of the community,” said Chris Zettel, corporate communications officer at the City of Cranbrook. “The funds provided by the BC Hydro helps the City purchase and plant more trees than it would be able to on its own.” In the past 20 years BC Hydro has provided financial support for community tree plant-

ing in Cranbrook and communities throughout the East Kootenay. BC Hydro and Tree Canada Foundation administer the Regreening Program and work directly with municipalities and communities around the province to support tree planting in urban areas. The partnership helps restore, enhance and retain green space within communities, as well as encourage

The evolution revolution “Some people drink from the fountain of knowledge; others just gargle.” Robert Anthony


atching the Knowledge Network these days is so edifying. I am discovering stuff I’d never before dreamed of learning. The trouble is, by the next day, I’ve forgotten what important thing it was that I’d learned the day before. This is probably why Knowledge and PBS show these fascinating programs several times; they know about idiots like me. The latest bit of information that boggled my diminutive mind was about bacteria appearing in boiling water on a recently erupted volcanic island off New Zealand. I think that I partly comprehend the science of evolution, but did those bacteria suddenly evolve out of nothing right there in that boiling water on that island or did they fly in and suddenly become enamoured with hot baths? I don’t get it. Let’s work through this slowly, eh? Volcanic lava spewed out of the earth under the sea. Eventually, this new rock piled up and poked up out of the sea and became, ipso facto, an island. Rain fell and accumulated in hollows and formed pools which, because the rock was hot, became hot enough themselves to boil the hide off an elephant yet, in the middle of this foo-

faraw, bacteria appeared, swimming as their lives depended on it. No wonder a bacterium is able to evolve out of nothing behind my fridge. We humans haven’t a hope in hades of stopping these life-forms. Mind you, other forms of life evolve around my place with the speed of summer lightning. Take that roll of black electricians’ tape (the tape being black, not the electrician), for example. I found myself having to Peter join two electric wires and, Warland as I am not fond of my few remaining head hairs standing on end like Seinfeld’s Kramer’s does, I went in search of some tape. I couldn’t find a bit. I scoured the house — skilfully avoiding the bacteria lurking everywhere — the tool shed, all the tool-boxes, everywhere, and struck out. I resigned myself to yet another journey to Cambodian Tire and so went to lie down to consider the cussedness of life. Then, half asleep on the settee, I had an inspiration and rushed out to my pickup truck, rusting outside in the elements, and there in the box where I’ve always kept the necessaries for getting me out of trouble in the bush, I discovered a roll of electrician’s tape. It probably only held about two inches (one point five kilograms) of the precious stuff but it sufficed. With the wiring completed, I wan-


dered into the shed and there found, in plain sight, two full rolls of tape. I’d never seen them before and reckoned that they had evolved there out of saw-dust, lubricating oil and spiders’ eggs. Isn’t nature wonderful? Lots of other things evolve out of thin air in my place. Yesterday, for example, I was searching for a stapler, something that is supposed to reside in the tool shed but had somehow wandered off. I wasted half a day on seeking that missing object then, suddenly, a new one (not the old blue one that frequently refuses to work) appeared out of nowhere. It must have evolved right there on the desk. I’d never seen it before. I wonder what it evolved from. Bacteria? I read recently that scientists have discovered one of our earliest ancestors in the Burgess Shale in Yoho National Park. What the heck he was doing there boggles my mind but, looking at the pictures, I can’t see why he wasn’t squashed flat like all those other creepy, nasty-looking things, sprayed maybe, but then, we humans wouldn’t have evolved from it in time to enliven things, eh? Talking of enlivening things: now I’ve been informed that there’s another one of my family been discovered living in Australia. Does evolution ever quit? How do these Australian Warlands get on with life upside-down whilst hanging around in gum trees like koala bears? Isn’t evolution marvellous?

he forests surrounding Cranbrook, and most other communities in the Regional District bear no resemblance to the forests that evolved in this area over the last 1,000 years, and are in danger of being irreparably altered in the event of a large-scale, high-severity wildfire. I make this simple statement in response to a recent letter to the editor in which the author suggests that these same forests do not constitute a threat to the community and that they should be left in their current state. In 1890 there were only 28 trees per hectare in McLeary Park and at that time the forest was comprised of primarily western larch, with a few scattered ponderosa pine and Douglas-fir. Prior to 1890, low-intensity surface fires passed through McLeary Park, and the rest of what is modern-day Cranbrook, on average every seven years. Since 1890 we have successfully excluded fire from Cranbrook and the

immediate area but the consequences are significant not only for the community but also the native ecosystems. McLeary Park, prior to the City thinning it in 2006, contained over 10,000 trees per hectare with a dramatic species shift from the historic fire-tolerant western larch to much less fire-tolerant Douglas-fir. A fire today has the potential to quickly transition from a low-intensity surface fire to a fast-moving crown fire, resulting in an extremely dangerous work environment for firefighters and risking homes and surrounding neighbourhoods. This is the same scenario as when 40 per cent of the town of Slave Lake was destroyed or damaged by a wildfire in 2011. What the City of Cranbrook and other regional governments are trying to do is to proactively reduce the risk of catastrophic fire and make the forests more resilient to fire in general (we can’t stop all fires so the strategy is to “fire-harden” our communities and

neighboring ecosystems). As the letterwriter correctly points out one of the consequences of thinning the forest is the development of a grass understory in the forest which when ignited can result in rapid fire spread. Wildfires in thinned stands are much preferred over the unthinned stands for a number of reasons: it is safer for firefighters to attack the fire; aerial resources are much more successful at impeding the fire; total fire cost is much lower; and, the forest has a much better chance of surviving. The science behind the effectiveness of this strategy — thinning followed by prescribed fire — is very solid and irrefutable. Areas that I was involved in on the San Carlos Apache Reservation in Arizona in the mid-1990s survived the massive 2011 Wallow Fire whereas many stands that were not thinned, or were not prescribe burned following thinning, were burned so severely that they will not support forest growth for centuries. One other irony I must

point out involves the assertion that our efforts to fireproof the community are really just an excuse to support the timber industry. The timber industry cannot use 90 per cent of the material that we need to thin because it does not produce sawtimber — it is too small, tapered, dead, etc. The only product stream suited for this material is the renewable bioenergy sector. It is through utilizing this material in the development of bioenergy opportunities that we hope to generate the revenues necessary to pay for the work necessary to treat the lands, fire harden our communities and restore the local ecosystems to the healthy and fire resilient condition without additional costs to the taxpayer.

Another defeat for the environment


he world has failed us,” said Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa. “I have signed the executive decree for the liquidation of the Yasuni-ITT trust fund and with this, ended the initiative.” What might have been a model for a system that helps poor countries avoid the need to ruin their environment in order to make ends meet has failed, because the rich countries would not support it. In 2007, oil drillers found a reservoir of an estimated 846 million barrels of heavy crude in Yasuni National Park, in Ecuador’s part of the Amazon. But the park is home to two indigenous tribes that have so far succeeded in living in voluntary isolation – and it is listed by UNESCO as a world biosphere reserve. A single hectare of Yasuni contains more species of trees than all of North America. Ecuador, which cannot access finance on international markets, desperately needs money, and the oil meant money: an estimated $7.2 billion over the next decade. Nevertheless, Ecuadorians were horrified by the pollution, deforestation, and cultural destruction that the drilling would cause: a large majority of them opposed drilling in the park. And then Energy Minister Alberto Acosta had an idea. What if Ecuador just left the oil in the ground? In return, Acosta hoped the rest of the world would come up with $3.6 billion (half of the forecast income from oil revenues) over the next decade, to be spent on non-polluting energy generation like hydroelectric and solar power schemes and on social programmes to help Ecuador’s many poor. The pay-off for the foreign contributors to this fund would come mainly from the fact that the oil under Yasuni would never be burned, thereby preventing more than 400 million tonnes of carbon dioxide from going into the atmosphere. Only a drop in

the bucket, perhaps, but if the model worked it could be applied widely elsewhere, offering the poor countries an alternative to selling everything they can dig up or cut down. The idea won the support of the United Nations Development Programme, which agreed to administer the Yasuni-ITT trust fund. It was set up in 2009, and the money started to come in. But it didn’t flood in; it just trickled. Chile, Colombia, Turkey and Georgia donated token Gwynne amounts. Brazil and Indonesia (which would cerDyer tainly benefit from the same sort of arrangement) promised donations eventually but didn’t actually put any money up. Among the developed countries, Spain, Belgium and France also promised donations, Italy wrote off $51 million of Ecuadorian debt, and Germany offered $50 million worth of technical assistance to the park.And that was it. Not a penny from the United States, Britain, Canada, Australia, the Netherlands or Scandinavia. Individuals put in what they could afford (including high-profile donors like Leonardo DiCaprio and Al Gore). But four years later, the pledges only amounted to $116 million. Actual cash deposits were only $13 million. So last week, Correa pulled the plug. “It was not charity we sought from the international community,” Correa said, “but co-responsibility in the face of climate change.” Maybe Correa could have waited a bit longer, but the idea was always Acosta’s baby, and Acosta ran for president against Correa last February and lost. It was also Acosta who led the successful drive to make Ecuador the first country to include the “rights of nature” in its new constitution. This is a radical break from traditional environmental regulatory systems, which regard nature as property. Ecuadorian law now recognizes the inalienable rights of ecosystems to exist and

flourish. It gives people the right to petition on the behalf of ecosystems, and requires the government to take these rights seriously. Like the trust fund, this is an idea that may ultimately bear much fruit. For the moment, however, it’s just too great an intellectual and political leap to demote the property rights of actual voters (and campaign contributors) to a status below the right to survive and thrive of mere ecosystems – even though we all depend on these ecosystems to survive ourselves. So we continue on our merry way to a global meltdown – and this just in from London! Fracking is now more important than wind power! When the Conservatives came into office three years ago they pledged to be the “greenest government ever”, but they have fallen in love with shale gas, CO2 emissions and all. The British government has announced a new tax regime for fracking described by the Chancellor, George Osborne, as “the most generous for shale (gas) in the world.” Not only that, but there will be “no standard minimum separation distance” between a fracking rig and people’s houses. Planners considering drilling applications “should give great weight to the benefits of minerals extraction, including to the economy.” In practice, that means that they can drill wherever they want, including your front garden. Whereas local people will now have a veto on the construction of any wind turbines in their neighbourhood. Prime Minister David Cameron’s office explained that “it is very important that local voters are taken into account when it comes to wind farms … if people don’t want wind farms in their local areas they will be able to stop them.” It’s okay to ruin the planet, but God forbid that you should ruin the view.

Canada falls 3-2 to United States in U18 women’s hockey exhibition LAKE PLACID, N.Y. - Eve-Audrey Picard scored twice but Canada lost 3-2 to the United States in the finale of a three-game women’s under-18 exhibition hockey series Sunday. Picard opened the scoring at 16:58 in the first period and added another in the third, but the U.S. went ahead with a three-goal second period. Taylor Williamson’s power-play goal tied the game just 44 seconds into the period, and Lexie Laing scored two more to put the Americans ahead for good. Shea Tiley made 27 saves in net for Canada, while Erin O’Neil stopped 18 for the U.S. Canada won the opening game 4-1 on Thursday and beat the U.S. again 3-2 on Friday as the team prepares for the 2014 IIHF Ice Hockey U18 Women’s World Championship next April.

Rockets’ Lin keen to work on chemistry with Howard BEIJING - Jeremy Lin said Sunday he’s looking forward to pairing up with the Houston Rockets’ newly acquired star Dwight Howard. Lin told reporters on a visit to Beijing that he saw a natural affinity in the pair’s affection for the pickand-roll game. Howard signed with Houston after playing for the Lakers, following a strong push by former Rockets starts, including Hakeem Olajuwon and China’s Yao Ming. The Rockets went 45-37 during Lin’s first season with the team and lost to the Oklahoma Thunder in the first round of the playoffs. The addition of Howard is expected to put the team in contention for a title. Associated Press

Hockey and golf seem to go hand in hand, so it’s only natural that the Kimberley Dynamiters are hosting a golf tournament that concludes

with free tickets to an evening game on September 21st. Dubbed the Putt to Puck Classic, the Nitros will tee off at the recreational nine-hole course at the Bootleg Gap Golf

ner and the ticket for the game between the two KIJHL teams at the Kimberley Civic Centre. Tournament organizer Glen Johnstone said the event is another way to raise money for the team, eschewing traditional fundraisers such as raffle tickets. “People are tired of buying raffle tickets for a chance to win something,” said Johnstone. “They’d rather donate money this way, because they’re actually getting something for it, so that’s how we’re feeling. “We got so many golf courses around here, we might as well try to utilize them.” Johnstone plans to have long drive, chipping and putting contests set up, with additional chances to win prizes for a hole-in-one and closest-to-the-pin. Tournament format will be a scramble start

with participants playing best ball. It’s a tight weekend for the Dynamiters, which play a Friday game in Invermere against the Rockies, before coming home to Kimberley for the tournament and matchup with the ‘Riders on Saturday afternoon and evening. The tournament could be a way for out-oftown Nitros players to spend time with their parents, who may come to town to attend the game, Johnstone added. “We want to try and get it so that people who are coming into the game, like parents, they might be able to play golf in the middle of the day, then come watch their kids play hockey that night,” he said.

Players arrive for Canada’s men’s Olympic off-ice camp Stephen Whyno Canadian Press

CALGARY - Sidney Crosby would like to be on the ice this week at Hockey Canada’s Olympic orientation camp. So would Roberto Luongo. Instead, the high cost of insurance will limit them to some optional off-ice workouts and maybe some golf on the side. But Hockey Canada figures that no skating is no problem for the players who travelled to Calgary for a few days of meetings, bonding and information-sharing in preparation for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. “It would be nice, but it’s not the case and I still think we can get a lot out of these few days without skating,” said Crosby, the Pittsburgh Penguins captain who scored the gold-medal-winning goal in Vancouver in 2010. “There will be a lot of information being thrown out there and we’ll have to learn a lot in a short period of time, but I think everyone is kind of excited for that.” Those who went through this experience four years ago before the Vancouver Olympics remember it fondly. They were able to skate then,

something that allowed coach Mike Babcock to at least get a rough idea of line combinations. General manager Steve Yzerman would have liked that extra preparation, but as assistant coach Claude Julien of the Boston Bruins pointed out, not having the luxury of skating gives the staff a “great opportunity to do something different.” “What you do in the next three days, we’ve learned over time really matters,” said assistant Ken Hitchcock, who coaches the St. Louis Blues. “The terminology that Mike talks about that we put in the next two days, the systems, the walk-throughs, are really, really important because all of us at the end of this event, we get onto our own teams and we don’t think about it until we get on the plane. Having that information that the players can draw from, we can go back and hit familiar ground right away.” Creating some familiar ground is one of the main goals in the next couple of days. Many of the players at least know each other, but as Kevin Lowe, president of the Edmonton Oilers, noted, there’s no way to under-

estimate “camaraderie and relationships” going into the Olympics. Spending time together is one thing players said they’re trying to get out of this experience.

“Being an Olympian to me is much bigger than just being part of a regular hockey team.” Mike Babcock “I know a lot of them are going to be my opponents during the season; some of them are pretty close friends that I haven’t seen in while, so it’s a plus,” said Ottawa Senators defenceman Marc Methot. “And being around some great hockey people, there’s always an opportunity to learn a lot of cool new things. And we’re still getting a couple workouts in. They’re optional workouts, but we are working out, so it’s not a complete loss, physically.” Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf emphasized the need to stay in a workout routine, which also might be the biggest downside

of not skating at this camp. “I don’t think it matters from a standpoint of preparing for the Olympics. I think that we’re all professional players here, we’re all playing relatively the same game. There’s no big hockey secret out there,” Getzlaf said. “I think that the only thing that would be nice to keep on skating because we’re getting prepared for our own (NHL training) camps. This is a big chunk, this is almost a whole week where we’re not going to get our skates in.” San Jose Sharks defenceman Dan Boyle, 37, was “thrilled” not to be skating because he hadn’t ramped up his off-season regimen too much before going to Calgary. Oilers left wing Taylor Hall would love the opportunity to skate with a lot of talented potential teammates, but he was relieved because he’s not yet in peak shape to do so. Players generally didn’t protest the lack of on-ice activities because the insurance issue was out of their hands. Hockey Canada president and CEO Bob Nicholson estimated that with contracts totalling about

Adam Scott holds his lead to win Barclays Doug Ferguson Associated Press

JERSEY CITY, N.J. Masters champion Adam Scott won The Barclays on Sunday after everyone around him did their best to lose it. Scott played bogey-free at Liberty National, making only two birdies on the back nine for a 5-under 66 that put him in the mix of a crowded leaderboard at the top. Turns out he was the only one who stayed there. “I can’t believe it, to be honest,” Scott said after winning the FedEx Cup playoffs opener. “I just played a good round today and I came in and really didn’t think it had a chance. But obviously, things went my way a lot out there.” Justin Rose had a 25foot birdie putt for the lead, ran it 5 feet by the cup and three-putted for a bogey for a 68. Kevin Chappell had a two-shot lead through 10 holes, only to play the next seven holes in 7-over par

to close with a 76. Tiger Woods suffered a back spasm on the par-5 13th hole and hooked a fairway metal so far left that it landed in a swamp on the other side of the 15th fairway, leading to bogey. He dropped another shot on the 15th, and then gamely birdied the 16th and 17th holes to pull within one shot of Scott. Woods’ putt from the back of the 18th green was one turn short of falling to force a playoff. The last challenge came from Gary Woodland, who fell out of the lead when he hit driver on the 13th that ran into the water, leading to bogey. Woodland had birdie chances from inside 10 feet on the final three holes, and missed them all. He closed with a 73. “I found a way to hang in there and grind it out and gave myself a chance on the back nine on Sunday, which is everything you can ask for,” Woodland said.

Scott finished at 11under 273 and moved to a career-best No. 2 in the world. It was the second time Woods has missed a playoff by one shot at Liberty National. Woods, Woodland and Rose shared second place with Graham DeLaet of Canada, whose 65 matched the low score of the final round. DeLaet will move up to No. 9 in the Presidents Cup standings, and with one week before qualifying ends, is in good shape to make the International team. Woods had all four rounds in the 60s for the first time in a year on the PGA Tour, though it wasn’t enough. He battled stiffness in his lower back all week, which he attributed to a soft bed in his hotel room - the second straight year he has had back issues from a mattress at this event. Scott won for the second time this year, and at least put himself into the conversation for

PGA Tour player of the year if he were to go on to win the FedEx Cup. He is No. 2 in the standings behind Woods, though the $10 million prize does not come into view until the Tour Championship.

Reading is For Everyone!

$1.5 billion, it just got too expensive to insure them and allow players to lace up their skates. “I don’t think it’s anything major,” said Luongo, who won gold in Vancouver in 2010. “It’s always fun to go on the ice with the country’s best players and it kind of kicks off your season a little bit one you do that. It’s going to be a good time here even though we’re not skating. But it would’ve been nice to maybe stop a few pucks.” These players will get their chances to skate with teammates soon enough, when NHL camps open next month. “Guys have been working out and guys have been skating a lot

recently,” Tampa Bay Lightning forward Steven Stamkos said. “Maybe a little break is going to be nice before you really go hard for two weeks heading into (training) camp. ... It’s not like even if we were going on the ice we’re going to be doing a lot of tough, tough situation things. We’re probably going to get the same results by going over things with coaches, watching video and things like that.” That’s where Babcock’s coaching comes in. He said there’s “no sense worrying” about not skating, simply adjusting to the situation on the fly. The Detroit Red Wings coach singled out

everyone getting to know each other and implementing the details of how Canada is going to play in Sochi as two important pieces of camp. The third element is far more wide-ranging. “Being an Olympian to me is much bigger than just being part of a regular hockey team,” Babcock said. “You’re part of a bigger team: the Canadian team. That’s not just the Canadian hockey team, that’s the Canadian Olympic team. I think it’s a special, special thing. When you get special opportunities, your preparation should be the same. Our preparation this week has to be gold-medal preparation.”

Japan beats California 6-4 for Little League World Series title Associated Press

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Ryusei Hirooka lined a decisive two-run double in the bottom of the fifth inning and Shunpei Takagi hit two solo home runs as Tokyo beat Chula Vista, California, 6-4 on Sunday to win the Little League World

Series. It was the 14th championship game for Japan, which was making its fourth straight appearance in the title game, and ninth title. California, making its 23rd championship game appearance, has won seven World Series titles. Giancarlo Cortez

had a two-run single and Grant Holman an RBI single for Chula Vista. Trailing 4-3 after Cortez’s single in the fourth, Japan tied it on Takagi’s second homer and won it when Hirooka lined a 2-2 pitch down the left-field line for a double.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You could be overly serious as the day begins. You might feel as if there is a lot of tension around a domestic matter that you need to deal with. Opportunities will break through the moment. The unexpected will occur with a financial issue. Tonight: Follow your instincts. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You might want to think through a decision more carefully. Remain responsive as you juggle different forms of communication. A sudden insight might help you gain a better perspective about an individual. Tuck away this information. Tonight: Your smile wins the day. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Know when to take a pass and not jump headfirst into a project. Honor the fact that you have had enough. If you can take a day off, then do so. A friend might surprise you with his or her actions. Tonight: Make your excuses and take some much-needed personal time.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) You will find that success comes naturally. If you start to overthink things, you might sabotage yourself. Your instincts are right on, so follow them. Vague news might come in from afar. Know what you want, and you won’t lose your focus. Tonight: Join a friend or two. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You’ll want to see results from your recent efforts, and you’re more than willing to put in the necessary hours. A boss could feel pushed by your enthusiasm. You might sense a coolness between the two of you as a result. Just remember who the boss is. Tonight: Till the wee hours. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Detach, especially if you’re feeling pressured by a partner. You might not be sure what direction you should head in. A loved one or dear friend will add a certain element of chaos to your life. Try to understand where this person is coming from. Tonight: Listen to a roommate. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Relate to a partner or friend di-

For Better or Worse

rectly. You will see better results, and so will those around you. You seem very busy to others, and a loved one could do the unexpected. You have a long-term desire that could be fulfilled right now. Tonight: Go along with someone’s suggestion. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Defer to others, as they are unlikely to be responsive at this moment. Take an overview, and you’ll gain a deeper understanding of what is motivating others. Your creativity is likely to soar to an unprecedented level. Tonight: Once again, you are the one doing the listening. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You dive into your to-do list nearly immediately, and with someone’s help, you could get through your list earlier than you might have thought. A loved one could be most unpredictable, but he or she makes you laugh. Your compassion will flow. Tonight: Be naughty and nice. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You could feel subdued by a choice you need to make. Someone close to you clearly spoils

you; however, this person might not be able to give you feedback regarding this matter. You will wonder about your limitations. Tonight: Listen to a friend. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You are full of laughter and fun despite the fact that you are dealing with a heavy burden or a difficult situation. Your innate optimism mixes well with your willingness to work. You know that you will find a way out of this problem. Tonight: Hang out with a friend. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You might be making a situation more confusing than it needs to be. You have some strong words you want to share about a money matter. Know what is necessary to take pressure off the situation. Question what is motivating a partner or friend. Tonight: Speak your mind.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: My husband has a brother, “Bart,” who is several years younger. They are not particularly close, but we socialize on holidays. Bart has two daughters, a 20-yearold and a 7-year-old, both living at home in their small town. The family has lived a fairly isolated life. Bart is a pessimistic, rather unhappy and very self-absorbed guy. His wife is quiet and antisocial. My mother-in-law helps them financially and has always been available as a babysitter. My husband and I are concerned about the older daughter, “Laurie.” She has written very specific narratives on Facebook that have caused alarm. Laurie says she was constantly bullied as a child and recounted times when her father slapped her so hard, her nose bled and she urinated on herself. She says her ex-boyfriend was abusive, and she has attempted suicide eight times. Knowing that a minister lives next door to them, we called and asked for advice. Sadly, he stated that he is afraid to confront Bart because of his quick temper and fear of further reprisals against Laurie. He said the family is quite isolated, no one visits, and they don’t see other people socially. My daughter contacted Facebook, and they left resources and the number of a suicide hotline for Laurie. She attends college, and I’m sure there are counseling services there. What else can we do? -- Worried Aunt Dear Aunt: Laurie is fortunate to have family members who care so much about her welfare. It is difficult to assess what is true in a Facebook narrative. Laurie can post whatever she likes, and there is no way to confirm it. However, based on the minister’s comments and Laurie’s isolated family life, it is better to err on the side of protecting her. She has been given resources through Facebook. She has counselors available at college. You also could contact her privately and let her know she can come to you if she needs help. If you believe there is ongoing physical abuse, urge her to call the Domestic Violence Hotline ( at 1-800799-SAFE. Dear Annie: I often babysit my 3-year-old granddaughter. She recently has developed allergies, and they suspect one trigger is my dog. Her family has a dog that stays outside. Mine is an indoor pet. My granddaughter loves the dogs. Before my granddaughter visits, I vacuum, clean, dust and put my dog in a separate room. I do not have any carpeting. The allergic reaction doesn’t occur every time she visits, but I’m getting the impression that her parents want me to get rid of my dog. My dog is part of the family, and I cannot see doing this. But I also don’t like seeing my granddaughter suffer. What should I do? -- Torn Grandma Dear Torn: We know you are doing your best to keep your home dander-free for your grandchild, but it’s difficult to achieve that goal. Ask the parents whether you can go with them to the girl’s next pediatrician appointment and discuss your options. The doctor may offer alternatives that will allow you to keep your beloved animal. Dear Annie: I felt the need to respond to “Disgusted Parent,” whose son’s teacher accused him of plagiarism. I am a middle school language arts teacher. As part of our curriculum, especially now that we have adopted the Common Core Standards, I teach my seventh graders the difference between what is and is not plagiarism. I teach them to remember that “when in doubt, cite it!” In spite of what “Disgusted Parent” said, the majority of teachers do indeed teach their students how to think, read and write. I also require them to support their thinking in their writing. If this young man used someone else’s information, even if he put it in his own words, he still must cite the source -- Nash County, N.C.

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

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

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

5. Content: After e-mail, the most preferred Web

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

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

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

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