IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR
Be bear aware
Bear activity on the rise in Kimberley; black bears in town, grizzlies still in higher elevation on ski hill C AROLYN GR ANT email@example.com
Although there is no formal Bear Aware program to track movement of bears in Kimberley this year due to a funding miscommunication, there is plenty of anecdotal evidence around town suggesting that black bears have moved in. There are reports of visits by Ursus Americanus all over town, and as usual, the problem seems to be badly managed attractants. This is the time of year to take extra care with attractants of all sorts. Make sure your garbage is stowed securely in a bear proof location, or if it is getting especially fragrant in the late summer heat, don’t wait until garbage pick up day — take a trip to the transfer station. The other big attractant at this time of year is ripening fruit. Apple trees all over town appear loaded with fruit. If you have a fruit tree in
your yard, pick it. Wildsight has an apple press available. You can register to borrow the press to make your own juice at http://www.wildsight.ca/ apples/registration In addition to the black bears, the grizzlies that have been sighted several times on the ski hill and the Lois Creek trails are still in the area, hanging out in the higher elevation on North Star Mountain. The following tips come from Bear Aware BC. Garbage Store garbage in a secure building until collection day or consider purchasing a bear-resistant household container. Ensure bins are tightly closed. Regularly wash all recycling items and clean the bins that contain garbage or recycling. Do not leave garbage in the back of a truck, even if it has a canopy. If you cannot store garbage securely, freeze smelly items and add to the bin only on the morning of collection. Fruit Trees Pick fruit and allow it to ripen indoors or pick daily as it ripens. Do not allow windfall to accumulate on the ground. See, BEARS, page 4

This is not a sight you want to see when hiking. These two grizzlies may be the same ones that were hanging out on the ski hill earlier this summer, as well as being seen on the Lois Creek Trails. They were photographed in the area of the War Zone run at KAR last week. Please use caution when hiking.
Kimberley’s First Saturday in September C AROLYN GR ANT firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s First Saturday again on September 7, and a nice menu of activities has been planned. This one is all about community, says Carol Fergus from the Arts Council, which is why it’s so great to see the partnership between Kimberley Alpine Resort and the Kimberley Underground Mining Railway as one of the anchor events. KAR will be running the chairlift, so one and all are invited to board the train downtown for a Platzl to
Peak tour from downtown to the top of North Star Mountain. It’s all available for a special price and there will be entertainment from Tuck’s Troubadours and a barbecue courtesy of the Kimberley Elks Club at the downtown station. And the Platzl is where Kimberley celebrates community, Fergus says, so a great lineup of entertainment has been scheduled there as well. Brenda O’Keefe, Fraser Armstrong and the Pursuits and Sheva with Van and Shelagh Redecopp, Darin Welch and Haily Dun-
can”s School of Highland dance will all be performing, beginning at noon. There will be all kinds of information booths set up, such as Emily Chase from Kimberley Edible Gardens, Wildsight will have their apple press available, so bring your picked fruit. The City of Kimberley will be there with information on the new marketing tools — #agoodplacetobe “We’d like to promote lunch in the Platzl,” Fergus said. “There are so many restaurants — if it’s nice weather, come and eat
outdoors and enjoy the music. Cominco Gardens are beautiful right now, there’s a group bike through the Nature Park, buskers are welcome in the Platzl.” In addition to the musical entertainment, Trina Rasmusen will be offering a free excerpt from her Fly Me to the Moon vertical dance show at Spirit Rock Climbing Centre. There is another high tea at Chateau Kimberley, an opening exhibit at Centre 64 for local artist Cristina Borgogelli, and a jazz concert in the evening, also at Centre 64.

The Kootenay Country Fair is celebrating its 36th year of bringing together crafters and harvesters in the autumn. The event takes place Sunday, Sept. 8, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the historic ambiance of Fort Steele Heritage Town. The event will include a petting zoo, entertainers, strolling minstrels, wagon rides, children’s games, commercial tables and access to the entire heritage town. There will also be demonstrations in wheat threshing, blacksmithing, gold panning, visual arts, carvers and other activities of yesteryear. Fort Steele’s historic setting adds to the atmosphere of the country fair. The main attraction of the day is of course the exhibition of crafts and produce that people
have put their time into growing and creating. There are various categories to enter into from best photograph to most unusual vegetable to best decorated cookie. There is even a “Reduce, Reuse & Recycle” category where children and adults create artistic or utilitarian items out of recycled material. Admission includes access to the heritage town as well as the many activities throughout the day. In the morning, there will be a pancake breakfast, and at lunch a barbecue at the International Hotel. There will also be snacks available from vendors throughout the day. Entry forms must be received by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 3, which can be mailed in, either online to kootenaycountryfair1@gmail. com or through the

The zombies will walk again in Cranbrook next month. Last year the walk brought out 150 or so of the area’s undead population and this year Zombie Walk 2013 organizer Chad Engelhardt is hoping to bring to life even more. The zombies all meet up to become a horde on 8th Avenue on October 5 and make their way downtown across baker street. “Everyone dresses up and we have a whole bunch of zombies walking down Baker Street,” Engelhardt said. Instead of craving brains, these zombies are bringing items for the Cranbrook Food Bank. “We’re going to collect food items as entry,” explained Engelhardt. “When you bring a food items you’re going to get raffle tickets for the prize draw.” Engelhardt said he decided to start the Zombie Walk when he no-
ticed most towns have the events, but Cranbrook wasn’t one of them. It was also a good opportunity to gather donations for the food bank. “So I planned one and we had it last year,” he said. “It went pretty well. The weather was fairly nice and we had about150 people come. We raised $1,500 (in donations) for the food bank. It was pretty good last year, I’m hoping this year is going to be better.” M&M Meats will be on hand serving food and there will be music. There will also be pageant style awards for best dressed zombies. He said this year is coming together and with less than a month to go, time is of the essence. The organizing committee is still looking for businesses who want to donate time, services or products for pageant prizes. For more information search 2013 Zombie walk Cranbrook B.C. on Facebook.

Congratulations to Kimberley’s Dave Doucet, who recently returned from teh BC Senior Games in Kamlooops with three medals, two golds and a silver. Dave represented the East Kootenay in cycling.
One Book One Kootenay For the Bulletin
As each public library polling station reported, the results changed in this hard fought, 3-way race. The 5th annual One Book One Kootenay (OBOK) was not selected until the last library was heard from. It was almost as suspenseful as this year’s selection, Confined Space by Deryn Collier (Simon & Schuster, 2012). “OBOK is a wonderful way to support local writers and the exposure throughout the region for Confined Space has been fantastic,” remarked Collier when she heard her book was voted as the one people in the region should read. “I really hope the program continues.” OBOK is a regional book club, supported by the Kootenay Library Federation, the 19 member libraries in the Kootenay/Boundary and the Columbia Basin Trust. It has created an awareness of the depth and diversity of our literary
example of a locally written mystery, with universal appeal. The characters feel real, the plot is believable and you don’t have to live in the Kootenays to picture Kootenay Landing. Once you have read it you will want to hear what Collier has to say about her book. What inspired her? Where did she learn the technical details? How did a first time author, from Nelson, get a large, well-established publisher to take her on? These, and many other questions, will be answered at events hosted by libraries, across the region, in October.

Bert Banks, a man with a long history of community service, and in particular a strong advocate for many years for an aquatic centre in Kimberley, will be honoured at that Aquatic Centre on Friday, when the lap pool will be dedicated to him. There will be a small dedication ceremony on Friday, September 6 at 2 p.m. Mayor Ron McRae will be doing the honours and tea and coffee will be served in the multipurpose room. The community is invited to attend. Banks, born in Cranbrook but raised in Kimberley, began his community service in the then-village of Chapman Camp where he was the instigator of the Chapman Camp Recreation Committee. He served on the Village committee for five years and was the Village representative on the East Kootenay Board of Health. He was a member of the Benevolent Society, Masonic Lodge, & Jay Cee at Anglican Church. He began his service on Kimberley City Council in 1968 after the amalgamation of Kimberley, Chapman Camp and Marysville. At that time he served until 1971. He served again from 1973 to

1975, and then from 1990 to 2002 for a total of 17 years on Council. He was a member of the Board of Directors for the Kimberley Ski Hill and served over 20 years with the Kimberley Dynamiters organization as President, Vice President and more. He personally signed bank notes when the club struggled financially in the 1980s, helped the club by organizing dances, socials, etc. and brought the club back
to being in the black. He remains a huge supporter today. Banks advocated for a pool in Kimberley for many years. He sat on the first Pool Committee in the 1980’s, again in 1996 when it was tried again, and again in 2004 when the third Pool Committee was successful in achieving the go-ahead for the present aquatic centre. Banks has also been an advocate for seniors housing in Kimberley.

Time to be bear aware From Page 1 If you do not want the fruit, prune the tree vigorously to prevent blossoms or spray spring blossoms with a garden hose to knock them off. If you would like to make the fruit available to others, contact a local fruit exchange program or food bank. Consider using electric fencing to protect your fruit trees. If you no longer want to manage your tree, consider replacement with a native, non-fruit bearing variety. Berry Bushes Berries should be picked as they ripen. Consider replacing your bushes with native, non-fruiting varieties if you do not want the fruit. Consider using electric fencing to protect your fruit trees. Bird Feeders Use bird feeders only in the winter when bears are hibernating and natural bird food is limited.
Use bird baths or native plants to attract birds without attracting bears. Compost The key to a healthy compost is ensuring equal amounts of brown and green materials. Layer your greens, such as kitchen scraps and fresh grass clippings with no more than 10 cm of browns, such as dried leaves, grasses, shredded newspaper and cardboard. Do not add fish, meat, fat, oils, un-rinsed eggshells or any cooked food . Add oxygen by turning regularly. Avoid overloading the compost in fruit season - freeze material and add gradually. Avoid adding cereals or grains. Pet Food Feed pets indoors. If pets are fed outside, ensure all food is cleaned up. Store pet food in a secure location or in a bear-resistant bin. Barbecues

Twenty-six ladies participated in the Ladies Club Golf Championship on Sunday with Mrs. Louane Holmes capturing the crown by shading Mrs. Margaret Wilson in the championship flight. Mrs. Holmes shoved last year’s champion, Mrs. Edith Achtzener, out of the race and went on to win her third championship. Her previous titles came in 1949 and 1950. Diminutive Ralph Redding dethroned Doc Livingston as Men’s Club champion in a match that went into 19 holes before Redding was declared winner. Redding had to come from behind to defeat the former club professional. The various men’s flights will be run throughout the coming two weeks.
HAULING JOB PROVES TRICKY
One of the trickiest hauling jobs in Kimberley’s history has been underway this past week with Kootenay Enterprises Ltd., promoters of Kimberley’s television receiving company, hauling a 105 foot mast to the top of North Star Mountain. The huge pole, one of the biggest ever seen here, was selected by Jimmie Gillespie and tom Birrell and was cut about 12 miles up the St. Mary’s road. Lee Ringham then undertook the tricky job of hauling the monster to Kimberley. At the present time, it is within sight of its objective although a tractor
will be required to get it the remainder of the way up the mountain. Benny Redisky, of the television company, said this morning that the first game of the World Series was received sharp and clear at the company’s receiving station.

Your Fourth Line Club, in appreciation of the whole-hearted support ,shown over the last season, proposes to make this coming winter’s program bigger and better than ever.

If you attended the Lions’ farewell party for Dr. B. Krasnoff at the Oasis you will be familiar with the class of entertainment we have in store for you. If you don’t believe me we give you as reference, Bill Copeland, Lloyd Larson, Bruno Rinaldi, Dr. Finch and Dr. Schofield, who have already had the pleasure of seeing this team work.

Exuberant secrets of the Kootenays “What a day this has been, what a rare state I’m in…” Alan Jay Lerner
ne evening, during those hot days of August, I had a call from a stranger. I was in a very cheerful mood so I picked up the phone. The caller, a man who told me his name, announced that he was doing a survey and was asking folk their opinions on how they felt about living here in the East Kootenay. As I said, I was feeling extremely cheerful that evening, exuberant even, and so politely told the caller that, although I didn’t have the time to chat about his survey, I had elected to come to the East Kootenay because I’d admired the look of the valley when I first visited, I have lived here for over fifty years, loved my life here and, what is more, I had no intention of leaving until, as they say, ‘I shuffled off this mortal coil’. The reason for my happiness that particular evening was that Paul and I had just returned from an exhilarating day in the local Rocky Mountains. After a few abortive attempts, we’d re-discovered a trail that had led us easily to a high ridge and to a panorama that had taken away our collective breaths. That trail had been a close-guarded se-
cret of a few local people. We both had known of its existence but had been unable to unravel its secret until that joyful day when we’d heaved our ancient bodies on to the ridge and stared at the panorama before us. And there was no-one else there, virtually no evidence of human activity but for a small pile of rocks marking the head of the trail. We’d felt privileged to be there. A few weeks before, we’d returned battered and Peter bleeding from an earlier atto find a practical Warland tempt way up to a nearby ridge. After too many hours, we’d made it; it wasn’t a practical route; I’ve still got the scars. But this time, there, laid out before us, was the whole Wildhorse Valley and its peaks, basins and pretty lakes. We knew them all. Paul looked as excited and as young as a man of his years was able; I merely felt a tad more youthful than I ought to have done. We sat for a while, Paul and I, soaking in the heady atmosphere. Way to our left were the Nine basins where we both had climbed, skied and camped innumerable times. Paul recalled setting up his tent in a meadow that had been filled with Grass of Parnassus. I thought back to discovering a brilliant coloured hummingbird frozen
stiff almost at the top of Mount Dingley. We chuckled as we recalled skiing, almost in the dark, down the basins to where our snowmobile waited and then refused to start. Across from us lay Bear Creek and its two tiny lakes, a popular hiking place these days. George and Maggie, his wife, first spotted Bear Lake from the mountain above it. They’d climbed from the Summer Lake side and were determined to get to it. A week or so later we discovered the new logging road up towards the basin and off we went. It wasn’t easy, we recalled; the game trails had been few and far between. And there was the East Fork of the Wildhorse from where, when the logging roads still existed, we’d climbed Mount Sneath and Mount Haley plus a high, unnamed peak that friend Sandy labelled ‘Mine’, and where I’d watched two college girls tie their jackets about their waists, pull the tails up between their legs and ‘bum slide’ at breakneck speed down icy snow slopes as I aged far too rapidly. Further to the right on that glorious day quite recently we looked over at Boulder Creek and the backside of Mount Fisher, a fine peak that we’d both ascended several times but now avoided because of the ‘hordes’ that go there these days. We’d rather climb, as we did on that glorious day so recently, where few others care to tread.

Parkinson’s fundraiser is this weekend What’s Up? First-ever Parkinson’s SuperWalk taking place in Cranbrook, Saturday, September 7 Townsman Staff
Tracy Ellerbeck’s mother was diagnosed with Parkinson’s four years ago, at the age of 52. Tracy and her mother Suzanne recently decided to get matching tattoos of the Parkinson’s symbol of the tulip with the words “hope in bloom” – and found they wanted to do more for the cause. “My mother heard about a family in Vancouver who had raised a significant amount for SuperWalk last year,” said Tracy. “We knew it would be a large task to take on, but decided that we were going to start our very own walk in Cranbrook.” Tracy is now the local organizer for the first-ever Parkinson’s SuperWalk in Cranbrook. She’s working hard to spread the word and build awareness within the community. “My family has always been very active,” she said. “We want to raise funds and find a cure for Parkinson’s, so my mother can continue to maintain her quality of life.” She said there are many people in the area who are touched by Parkinson’s and SuperWalk gives them hope. Proceeds from SuperWalk events across
Susanne and Tracy Ellerbeck. B.C. go towards research and support services provided by Parkinson Society British Columbia. Last year, the society funded two local researchers, hosted a regional conference and Young Onset seminar, delivered clinician training and community lectures to more than 400 people across the province and added five new support groups bringing the current total to 53. The event takes place on Saturday, September 7, 2013, at 11 a.m. at the College of
the Rockies track. Families and friends will walk together to raise critical funds for Parkinson’s research, support services and education. Register by visiting www.parkinson.bc.ca. SuperWalk is the largest national fundraising event for Parkinson’s disease and this month communities across Canada and in B.C. will join in the initiative. In B.C. organizers hope to best last year’s fundraising of $595,000, while in Canada, the aim is to raise $3.3 million. Parkinson’s is the second most common degenerative neurological disorder after Alzheimer’s noted the society. It is estimated that 11,000 British Columbians and more than 100,000 Canadians live with the disease. It is cruel and unforgiving causing tremors, rigidity, postural instability, difficulty talking, walking and swallowing, reduced facial expression, and in some cases, depression and dementia. The debilitating effects of Parkinson’s are felt not only by the person with the disease, but their entire family. It knows no bounds and can strike anyone – women and men of all ages, ethnic backgrounds and lifestyles. There is currently no known cure.
Blackmore loses costly court battle F inally, polygamous leader Winston Blackmore has felt the sting of Canadian law. But reminiscent of how the Americans finally put Prohibition-era mobster Al Capone behind bars, it’s not the criminal laws that Blackmore has run afoul of, it’s tax laws. After what a judge called an “astronomical” understatement of his income and benefits by approximately $1.8 million, Blackmore fought Revenue Canada. He lost on appeal. Now, not only does he have to pay his back taxes, Blackmore’s on the hook for a penalty of $150,000. (Despite Judge Diane Campbell’s conclusion that Bountiful residents don’t have to share Blackmore’s tax burden, the evidence heard at the trial suggests that Blackmore will likely raise the money by additional tithing or making a “famine call” to residents to live for three months only using their stored food supplies and handing over their grocery money to him.) There’s no small irony that Campbell described Blackmore’s behaviour as “reflective of an indifference as to whether there is or is not compliance with the law.” In her decision dated Aug. 21, the judge also wryly noted that the case introduced “unique and novel legal and factual issues that are not normally before this Court.” The appeal, which stretched over five months in 2012, was the first time the section allowing special tax consideration for religious groups was tested in court. And, tax boffins aside, Blackmore’s notoriety means that this is likely the only trial that Campbell will ever be asked about at dinner parties. Blackmore is the religious leader to
about 500 people - mostly family members - living in and around Bountiful, in the Kootenays. The faith they profess is based on the teachings of Joseph Smith, Mormonism’s founder, and it includes polygamy. Blackmore, who was once known as the bishop of Bountiful, was criminally charged with polygamy in 2009 along with James Oler. Those charges were dropped beDaphne cause of a procedural error. But Blackmore and Bramham other men in Bountiful remain under scrutiny. Special prosecutor Peter Wilson is reviewing RCMP evidence with a view to laying charges ranging from polygamy to human trafficking to sexual exploitation. Religion was at the root of Blackmore’s tax appeal, but Campbell’s task was limited to determining whether Bountiful constitutes a “congregation” under the federal Tax Act. To do that, she heard from religious experts as well as both former and present Bountiful residents who talked about life in the isolated community. The whole thing began because Revenue Canada found that over six years starting in 2000, Blackmore understated the income and benefits he received from J.R. Blackmore & Sons, which he directed. In court, Blackmore argued that his followers ought to share his tax burden. Yet, he admitted that until he spoke to Vancouver lawyer David Davies about possibly appealing, he had no idea that there was a special tax provision for groups such as Hutterites who live communally. Despite at times praising Davies for the case he made, Campbell concluded that Blackmore’s community failed to meet any of the four criteria that define a ‘congregaLetters to the Editor
tion’ in the federal Tax Act. They don’t all live and work together. They don’t belong to an identifiable religious organization, only to a “religious tradition.” Not all of the property is held communally; instead, Bountiful has what Campbell called “its own unique relationship to property ownership.” That unique relationship includes some private property ownership, some property held in trust and Blackmore’s undisputed right to shift them like chess pieces from house to house - even ones they’ve built and paid for on their own. As for devoting their working lives and activities to the congregation, Campbell said there was no evidence that that is part of Mormon tradition. But it was in her consideration of a penalty that Campbell was scathing. As the “directing mind” of J.R. Blackmore & Sons, Blackmore “ought to have known that ignoring the astronomical magnitude of the differences between the reported income/benefits and the amount of benefits assessed - ranging from 884 per cent to 1,326 per cent - over a number of years, would attract some type of tax consequences,” she wrote in her 92-page decision. But here’s another irony. Blackmore also has an astronomical number of wives - so many that he forgot to mention one when he was asked to list them in Campbell’s court - and an astronomical number of children that now hovers somewhere north of 125. He ought to know that all of that would attract some type of consequences. But so far, Blackmore’s behaviour hasn’t. No wonder he’s indifferent to Canadian laws.

4 ex-players sue NFL and helmet maker after league’s concussion settlement NEW ORLEANS - Four former NFL players have sued the league and its helmet maker, claiming they hid information about the dangers of brain injury. They want medical care for past, current and future NFL players. The ex-players - Jimmy Williams, Rich Mauti, Jimmy Keyes and Nolan Franz - filed the federal lawsuit in New Orleans on Sunday. Last week, the NFL tentatively agreed to pay $765 million to past players with health problems that can be caused by concussions, but some said the amount should have been more. James Dugan II, the attorney for the former players bringing the new suit, did not immediately return a call and email seeking comment. Neither the league nor helmet maker Riddell, Inc. would comment Tuesday about the new suit, which claims they failed to protect players from brain injuries. Riddell isn’t part of the proposed settlement. Associated Press
Williams beats Navarro to reach US Open semifinals
NEW YORK - From an ace on the first point to a stinging return on the last, Serena Williams was close to perfect in the U.S. Open quarterfinals. The score said it all: 6-0, 6-0. Yes, Williams is looking better and better with each match at the year’s last Grand Slam tournament. With two more wins - no matter the exact scores - she’ll earn a fifth title at Flushing Meadows and 17th major championship overall. The No. 1-ranked and No. 1-seeded Williams shut out 18th-seeded Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain, winning 53 of 71 points and dominating pretty much every statistical category Tuesday night. The first set took all of 19 minutes. The second was slower, lasting 33 minutes, but no less lopsided. In Friday’s semifinals, Williams will play Li Na. Associated Press
Canada’s women’s soccer team to open 2014 schedule against the U.S.
Canada’s women’s soccer team will open its 2014 schedule with a friendly against the United States on Jan. 31. The game will take place in the U.S., although the location has yet to be determined. The teams last met on June 2 in front of a record-setting crowd at BMO Field in Toronto, with the Americans winning 3-0. That game - billed as “The Rematch” - marked both the first meeting between the rivals since Canada’s heartbreaking 4-3 loss to the U.S. in the 2012 Olympic semifinals, and the Canadians’ first game back home since they won bronze in London. The Canadian women have an all-time record of three wins, five draws and 45 losses in 53 international matches against the Americans, and have never won at home, tying them once and losing six times in seven home matches dating back to 1990.

Kootenay Ice assistant coach Jay Henderson (left) and head coach Ryan McGill (right) survey the ice at one of the team practices during training camp last week at Western Financial Place.
Henderson enjoying WHL life New Kootenay Ice assistant coach ready to tackle exhibition and the regular season
TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor
After playing 12 years of professional hockey, Jay Henderson moved seamlessly into coaching, starting at the college level for two years before landing with the Ice. Suffice to say, this past training camp hasn’t been his first rodeo, but the new assistant coach admits it’s been a different experience. “I was kind of amazed at what goes on behind the scenes,” said Henderson, who spent the previous two season assisting the bench with the NAIT Ooks in the ACAC, based in Edmonton.
“As a player, you don’t really worry about that, you worry about yourself, right? So it’s nice to be on the other side of things and obviously, it’s a really well organized club, so to see the way they function— there’s a lot of great people here, which is awesome.” A lot of players Henderson worked with at NAIT had just finished in some junior league— whether the WHL or Jr. A—but the goal of developing talent is still the same. In fact, he already had a connection to the club as he coached Ice graduate Steele Boomer for a year. “There’s a lot of bright futures here for
some of these guys and that’s where the skill levels are,” said Henderson, “and it’s our job to mould them into young men and young professionals.” Henderson joined the Ice in the summer, signing a two-year contract and replacing former assistant Chad Kletzel, who resigned to spend more time with his family. The players were split up into three teams at training camp—Blue, Black and White—with individual team practices and scrimmages. Henderson was out on the ice with bench boss Ryan McGill to help run the practices and get his hands dirty.
“It’s amazing, to be honest with you,” he said. “A lot of the talent, I wouldn’t say all of it, but a lot of it, is in the young kids—young men—but the veterans have done a great job with them, allowing them to perform up to their capabilities.” “…It was a great week at camp and I’m really looking forward to Tri-Cities to see how we
match up against other teams.” McGill has noticed what his new assistant has brought to the team so far, and is excited for the future. “He’s going to be great,” said McGill. “The kids love him, he’s got a real good grasp of how we do things here and he’s fitting in just perfectly.”

IOC president Rogge’s final term nears its end STEPHEN WILSON Associated Press
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina - Twelve years after taking over an IOC recovering from its worst ethics scandal, Jacques Rogge is leaving with the Olympic body in much sturdier shape but facing serious challenges. The 71-year-old Belgian steps down as president next
Tuesday after steering the International Olympic Committee through a period of relative stability that spanned three Summer Olympics and three Winter Games. Rogge, an orthopedic surgeon who competed in three Olympics in sailing, is completing his term with a reputation for bringing a calm, steady hand to the often turbulent
world of Olympic politics. He took a hard line against doping and ethics violations, created the Youth Olympics, oversaw a growth in IOC finances during a time of global economic crisis and made peace with the U.S. Olympic Committee after years of bitter squabbling over revenues. Under Rogge’s watch, the IOC has also taken the Olym-
pics to new places - including awarding the 2016 event to Rio de Janeiro for the first games in South America. “I hope that people, with time, will consider that I did a good job for the IOC,” Rogge, in an interview with The Associated Press, said with typical understatement. “That’s what you legitimately want to be remembered for.”

Pioneers are up for the challenge Team of triathletes prove that age really is just a number at Penticton event
Tre vor Cr awley Sports Editor
A team of athletes, including a Cranbrookian, recently returned from competing in the Penticton Challenge Canada Triathlon, which replaced the Ironman Canada, as it relocated to Whistler. Gary Bilmark, Sister Madonna Buder, and Dyane Lynch
competed as a team, with each individually taking on a different portion of the event on Aug. 25th. Calling themselves Team Pioneer, the three were personally invited by Challenge Family CEO Felix Walchshofer, who hails from Roth, Germany. Tackling the 112-mile bike portion was Sister
Madonna Buder, who at the young age of 83, has more than 45 Ironman races under her belt. Dianne Lynch, who holds the distinction of being the first and only woman to compete and complete the Penticton Ironman in 1983, ran the 26.2 mile marathon at the tender age of 70. Gary Billmark, at a
youthful 71 years of age, represented Cranbrook and completed the 2.4 mile swim. All told, the team finished the race with a time of 16:41:40, which was just under the allotted time of 17 hours. They finished last in the team portion of the event, but ahead of 22 individual participants.
EDMONTON - Edmonton Eskimos general manager Ed Hervey lit into his 1-8 football team Tuesday, and announced he has reached past his coaching staff to indefinitely bench underperforming offensive lineman Simeon Rottier. Hervey told reporters he will not longer sit quietly by and watch star quarterback Mike Reilly get slammed, drilled, hammered, and rag-dolled after every throw. “I’m done watching it,” Hervey told a news conference at Commonwealth Stadium, a day after Reilly was sacked seven times in the team’s 37-34 loss to the Calgary Stampeders. “I’ve had enough.” Hervey said he met with head coach Kavis Reed after the game to discuss the changes, which include a new play-caller on offence, but when asked about Rottier said, “There was no room for negotiation on this one. “Our football team is going to rest on the
shoulders of how healthy and how much success Mike Reilly has. We have to protect him to give ourselves a chance. “Our offensive line needs to improve and needs to improve fast,” he said, adding that changes are coming to the line.
“Our offensive line needs to improve and needs to improve fast.” Ed Hervey He said while linemen like Matt O’Donnell, Alexander Krausnick, and Thaddeus Coleman a have shown promise, he has lost patience with Rottier. “The majority of my frustration has been with Simeon,” he said. “Clearly Simeon is not living up to expectations. It wouldn’t bother me if he didn’t play another down this year.” Why not trade him or release him? “You know non-im-
port offensive linemen. You’ve got to hold onto them. The ratio,” he said referring to rules demanding a portion of the roster go to either players born in Canada or who spent a significant portion of their childhood here. You want to hold onto a guy you don’t want to play? “I’ve got to hold onto him. You change the rules and I’ll change that.” Rottier and Reed were not available for comment as Tuesday was an off-day prior to Friday’s rematch with the Stampeders at Commonwealth Stadium. Rottier, 29, was signed as a free from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in February 2012. The sixfoot-six 295-pound guard is from Westlock, Alta., and played college ball at the University of Alberta. The Eskimos are off to their worst start since they went 1-10 in 1971, and are on track to finish last in the West Division for the sixth time in the past eight seasons.
Canada’s Raonic on Davis Cup collision course with Djokovic Donna Spencer Canadian Press
Canada’s Davis Cup team is deep in talent. That depth will be needed to beat world No. 1 Novak Djokovic and Serbia on their home court in Belgrade. Milos Raonic leads Canada into the World Group semifinal tie Sept. 13-15 on clay at the Belgrade Arena. The winning country moves onto the final in November against the winner of the other semifinal between Argentina and Czech Republic.
Canada has never made it this far in the international men’s team tennis event that begins each year with 130 countries. Only 16 qualify for the World Group each year. Each tie consists of four singles matches and a doubles match. “As a group we’ve gone through events and moments that are pretty uplifting and it’s been a year where we’ve done a lot of things we’ve never done before and we want to continue to do that,” Canada’s captain Mar-
tin Larendeau said Tuesday during a conference call. “We’re really looking forward to the challenge and the chance to keep alive this great story we’re going through.” Raonic, from Thornhill, Ont., is the highest-ranked male singles player in Canadian history at No. 11 in the world. He reached his first Masters final at last month’s Rogers Cup in Montreal where he lost in straight sets to current world No. 2 Rafael Nadal of Spain.
Raonic, 22, advanced to the fourth round of the U.S. Open before falling in five sets to Richard Gasquet of France on Monday. Djokovic is 3-0 in Davis Cup singles in 2013. He and Raonic have never met on the professional tour. Frank Dancevic of Niagara Falls, Ont., doubles specialist Daniel Nestor of Toronto and Vancouver’s Vasek Pospisil round out the Canadian squad. Ottawa’s Jesse Levine, Filip Peliwo of Vancouver
and Toronto’s Adil Shamasdin will also travel to Belgrade as part of an extended squad of players. Serbia’s Janko Tipsarevic is ranked No. 21 in men’s singles and reached the third round of the U.S. Open. Nenad Zimonjic, the No. 1 doubles player in the world in 2008, and Dusan Lajovic will also represent Serbia with Bogdan Obradovic as the team’s captain. The Canadians will fly to Belgrade later this week. They’ll practise on clay courts
in the city and start training on the competition surface Monday, Laurendeau said. “It’ll be a challenging surface to adapt to for both teams,” he said. “The Serbs have also been playing on hard courts ever since Wimbledon and there’s not much time to turn it around. “We also know that we’re playing indoors. Indoor tennis is always something we enjoy and we like. Even though it’s clay, we still play in conditions where the ball will travel pretty well.”

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Confusion could cloud a decision if it is made immediately. Sit on this matter for a few days, if possible. A partner will appear to be more cheerful than he or she has been in a long time. Know that a boss or older relative might expect certain things of you. Tonight: Go for an early bedtime. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Your creativity is likely to emerge when dealing with a partner who can be cold. You might decide to suggest a weekend away together.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You might need some time to reach out to a family member or to deal with a domestic matter. A boss or higher-up could be so vague about what he or she wants that you might need to read some tarot cards in order to figure it out! Stay even-tempered. Tonight: Happy to be
home. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Keep conversations moving. You might find that someone’s voice has you drifting off to a different time or place. Try to stay present.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) A partner could be more creative than usual. This person seems to be choosing not to see what he or she does not want to. Try to help this individual be more realistic without sacrificing his or her imagination. You might like the outcome. Tonight: Take your next cue. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You might want to try a new way of doing something, and even if you don’t, a partner or loved one will insist that you approach a situation in just that manner. Keeping the peace in this case might not be very easy, but it certainly will be necessary. Tonight: Ever playful. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
For Better or Worse
You have a lot to do, and you will do your best to accomplish all of it. You could be overwhelmed by everything that you hear. Do not hesitate to question a family member, as this person often is elusive. You know what needs to be done. Tonight: Head home early. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You might have been so focused on work lately that you’ll be delighted to have some fun with a child or loved one today. You could see a situation differently from how an associate sees it. Make a point to consider this person’s point of view. Tonight: Play the night away. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Others will push you hard because they know that you’ll perform to the best of your ability. You might not feel comfortable with their lack of perspective. You are likely to distance yourself and say little. You care more about the end product. Tonight: A must appearance. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You will want to reconsider an offer that comes from someone
at a distance. You might not want to share more until you are ready. You also might want consider making a change in your daily life. Recognize the effect that this could have on others. Tonight: Surf the Web. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Try a different approach, or do some rethinking and revising. An associate or a partner could have strong feelings regarding how a situation needs to be approached. Let this person have his or her way, as your convictions are not as strong as his or hers. Tonight: Love the one you are with. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Defer to a friend or loved one. You might be uptight about what you are hearing. Clearly, you seem to be getting mixed messages.

Rhymes with Orange

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: Atrial fibrillation is a serious health issue that can lead to stroke. I didn’t even really know about it until my wife and I attended a preventive health screening at a local church where they checked for atrial fibrillation and other stroke risk factors. It turns out that atrial fibrillation is an irregular heartbeat that you may not even feel. We had no idea my wife had this condition until the screening. We brought the results to our doctor’s office, and they jumped on it. An EKG confirmed the screening results and told us that my wife was on the verge of having a stroke. This screening saved her life. September is Atrial Fibrillation Awareness Month, and I hope everyone will be checked for it. It is treatable. Finding it and working with your doctor to manage it can save your life or the life of someone you love. -- Dewey Bandy, Zephyr Hills, Fla. Dear Dewey Bandy: Thank goodness you and your wife attended the screening. We hope your letter will serve as a reminder to all of our readers to talk to their doctor about being tested for atrial fibrillation. Dear Annie: I recently learned that my husband of 40 years has reconnected with an old flame. I don’t think anything has happened between them yet, but I am sure he’d go for it if he wouldn’t get caught. So, I would like to address this to her: Dear Other Woman: My husband is a good provider, but don’t expect companionship. I can count on one hand the number of times we have seen a movie in 40 years. Don’t expect him to attend church or any other activity with you. Don’t expect to have a social life. Don’t expect him to go for a walk with you, even though he has a number of health issues and a walk would be good for him. Do expect to work full time and still do almost everything else to run the household. Do expect him to spend almost every evening and weekend watching TV. Do expect him to want sex on a regular basis, although he doesn’t care about your satisfaction. When his grandchildren visit, do expect to entertain and watch them, because he won’t. From your conversations with him, you probably think I am just baggage at this point, but say the word, and I will pack his suitcase. -- Too Tired To Care Dear Too Tired: Your marriage sounds depressing and exhausted. If you want to salvage what’s left, please consider putting some energy back into it. Marriage takes effort from both partners. Your husband is looking for excitement, and you’re fed up with his self-centered behavior. Is it too late for you to work up any interest? Could he possibly learn to be more considerate? Please get some counseling, with or without him, and decide what you want from your life and whether it includes your husband. Dear Annie: Thank you for your perfect answer to “Wichita, Kan.,” the teacher who asked what gift to give students when invited to their graduation parties. You said a personal letter saying positive things about the student is also a “gift.” My daughter just graduated high school and invited a substitute science teacher she really liked to her graduation party. Later that evening, she was going through the cards people had left for her. When she opened the card from the science teacher, she proclaimed, “Look what Mr. McF gave me!” and handed it to me to read. There was nothing in the card but a handwritten message. But the message was priceless. When my daughter sat down to write her graduation thank-you notes, this teacher received one, along with all of the notes for physical gifts. It was truly appreciated. -Proud Mother in N.P., NE Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

SEATTLE â€” Dozens of search and rescue members on Washington stateâ€™s Mount Rainier were deployed to rescue three Canadian climbers who fell into crevasse. Two of the three men who tumbled â€” one from Surrey, B.C., and the other from Edmonton â€” are in hospital in serious condition. The climbers fell early Sunday morning into a crevasse on Emmons Glacier at about the 3,500metre level on the 4,400 metre active volcano, said a news release from the U.S. National Park Service. The men were on their way to the summit of the mountain. The service said the incident was reported by another climbing team that happened to see the three fallen men at about 3:50 a.m. Sunday. A crew of about 36 personnel worked on the rescue. A helicopter pilot managed to drop a four-person rescue team to within about 30 metres of the accident scene. The service said the injured men were extracted by a newly established short-haul helicopter system. More than 10,000 people attempt to climb Mount Rainier every year, but fewer than half that number actually reach the summit, according to statistics from the Park Service.

VICTORIA â€” Mining companies will be able to apply for exploration permits online for existing mine sites, as the B.C. government cuts red tape for the booming sector. Natural Resources Minister Steve Thomson says low-impact activities such as exploration drilling and induced polarization, which uses an electrical current to measure deposits in the ground, can now be undertaken through the website FrontCounter BC. Mining companies will have to give the province 30 days notice of the exploration work, for the information to be referred to area First Nations. Companies will also be able to go online to extend the timing of previously approved exploration work up to two years. Last year, mining companies spent $680 million on exploration in the province.
With Verizon out, telecom file is a tricky one for Harper government C anadian Press
OTTAWA â€” With the deadline to sign up for a wireless spectrum auction looming and a major U.S. company out of the running, it looks doubtful anyone will burst onto the scene to compete against Rogers, Telus and Bell. So with Verizon out, what now for a Conservative government that has long staked its ground on getting a fourth player into Canadaâ€™s wireless market? Companies have until Sept. 17 to put down a deposit to participate in the auction of wireless spectrum, to be held in January. One route might be to delay the auction â€” an option Industry Minister James Mooreâ€™s office says it isnâ€™t considering. Telecom analysts say the Tories could look at regulating things such as the roaming fees charged by wireless companies. They say another option might be to let the auction go ahead as planned and save a decision on any leftover blocks of spectrum for a later date.

Ancient climate-cooling meteor may have hit Quebec
Somewhere under the forests, soil and bedrock of southern Quebec lie the ancient, undiscovered traces of an enormous meteor strike so catastrophic that it helped change the Earth’s climate and alter human history.
At least, that’s what Dartmouth University geochemist Mukul Sharma argues in a newly published paper, which could lead to an explanation of one of the most baffling episodes in our planet’s history. “The whole idea is controversial,’’ he said. “There’s a correlation between a cli-
mate event and a meteor, but what is the cause? How did it all play out?’’ Sharma has long been fascinated by a period about 13,000 years ago called the Younger Dryas, during which the Earth suddenly reversed a warming trend and cooled radically for more than a millennium.
North American ice-age mammals from camels to ground sloths to sabre-tooth tigers became extinct. Ancient humans had to put away their mastodon spears and learn to survive on roots, berries and small game — and maybe even shift to agriculture. “It was an abrupt event

when the Earth (was starting) to warm up,’’ said Sharma. “Suddenly, the climate changes again to very, very cold conditions and remains so for 1,400 years and then goes back merrily to warming again.’’ But why? Some scientists hypothesize that it was related to the collapse of a giant ice dam formed by receding glaciers, which released a huge flood of cold freshwater that disrupted ocean currents and reversed climate trends. Others suggest something else must have been at work as well — perhaps a series of major meteor strikes. Remains that could be from meteors dating from the onset of the Dryas have been found. But — perhaps because most of North America was covered by ice at the time — no evidence of an actual impact has been discovered. Enter Sharma. He and his colleagues began examining tiny, marble-like rocks found in Pennsylvania and New Jersey that date right from the start of the Dryas period. These “spherules’’ contained minerals that could only have been produced through extraordinary heat. What’s more, Sharma found the spherules weren’t local. The combination of isotopes they held closely matched those from areas in southern Quebec along the Gulf of St. Lawrence. What he’d discovered was evidence of a meteor strike so powerful it could punch through more than a kilometre of ice and still retain enough energy to generate temperatures upwards of 1,700 C, send a huge mushroom cloud into the sky and hurl rubble over a good chunk of the continent. That, perhaps in conjunction with other strikes around the same time, could have been disruptive enough to contribute to the climatic hiccup of the Younger Dryas. Never mind that the actual crater hasn’t been found. It may lie buried under thick beds of glacial till left behind as the ice finally retreated, Sharma suggested. He acknowledges that his discovery doesn’t prove meteors caused the Earth’s sudden cooling. It does, however, suggest there was at least one major event affecting the atmosphere that occurred right around the same time.
