TSX offers The future of downtown signal honour to Cranbrook company Cranbrook council will host a workshop to bring together ideas for the City Hall block


Cranbrook city council wants to consult with residents about a future vision for the downtown

block containing city hall, the RCMP detachment and the old fire hall. At the Monday, September 9 regular council

meeting, Coun. Bob Whetham put forward a motion that the city host a planning workshop around the future use of the city block between

10th and 11th Avenues, and Baker and 1st Streets. The workshop’s goal will be to identify requirements and seek

Athabasca Nuclear Corp., spin-off of Eagle Plains, invited to ring the bell to open trading day, Sept. 13 B A R RY CO U LT E R

A Cranbrook mining exploration company has been offered a signal honour at the Toronto Stock Exchange this week. Athabasca Nuclear Corp., a spin-off of Eagle Plains Resources, is part of a four-company syndicate that has been invited to ring the bell opening the TSX exchange on Friday, Sept. 13. Chuck Downie of Cranbrook, president and CEO of Athabasca Nuclear Corp., will be in Toronto to take part in the ceremony. Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) is the largest stock exchange in Canada, the third largest in North America and the seventh largest in the world by market capitalization. Its trading day always opens and closes with the ceremonial ringing of a bell. Companies of note, individuals and even charities are often invited as an honour to perform the ringing to open the market. The Western Athabasca Syndicate, which includes Athabasca Nuclear, is currently exploring for uranium in the Athabasca Basin area of northern Saskatchewan. Athabasca Nuclear (ASC:TSX-V) was “spunoff” from Eagle Plains Resources on a “one-forthree” basis, explained Mike Labach, Director of Investor Relations for Eagle Plains, meaning if shareholders had three shares of Eagle Plains they received one of Athabasca (the company was originally called Yellowjacket when the spin-off occurred). Labach said this practice is a typical business model for Eagle Plains — done to enhance shareholder value and spotlight successes.

Ryan Granville-Martin, originally from Cranbrook, now living in Toronto, has released a debut album featuring a brooding, dramatic collection of songs and guest appearances by some great Canadian singers and musicians.

A 10-year project takes wing

Ryan Granville-Martin releases debut album “Mouthparts and Wings”



10-year-project has come to fruition for a musician-producer, originally from Cranbrook, now living in Toronto. Ryan Granville-Martin grew up in Cranbrook, and moved to Toronto in 1995, eventually getting a music degree from the University of Toronto and starting a new life there. He has gained a

reputation as a drummer and producer, and “Mouthparts and Wings,” his debut album, shows he is at the nexus of the Toronto music scene. “Mouthparts and Wings” is a brooding, dramatic collection of songs, written over 10 years. It is thematically connected, but strikingly eclectic. The style of each song stands out on its own — in part because each song fea-

tures a different singer, but also because of Granville-Martin’s diverse production methods and varied instrumentation. He has placed thoughtful horn or string arrangements under some songs (“St. Barnabas,” “Violins”), a cello solo comes looping out of the background to claim our attention, vibes share disc space with overdriven electric guitars.

public input on future use of city-owned buildings and lands in the vicinity of city hall. Coun. Whetham said the workshop idea occured to him during the debate over the old brick building behind city hall, which was last month spared from demolition for a year while a community group raises funds to restore it. “Really it’s part of a larger issue involving change to this whole city block,” said Coun. Whetham. The block is likely to change in the next 10 years, he explained, as city hall will need to expand soon. Also, the city wants input on what kind of tenant would be appropriate for the old fire hall, which is presently vacant. “So what I am trying to do is to bring all of that together and essentially hold an evening where people can bring forward their ideas; the city will have to identify some of the concerns that it has. “It’s an opportunity for people to get engaged in shaping our downtown. It might not happen right away, it might take a long time, but I think we should begin to establish some goals about where we are going,” said Coun. Whetham. A date for the planning workshop has not yet been set.

The bears came over the mountain Grizzlies spotted in Chapman Camp neighbourhood; COs may use rubber bullets, or trap them and relocate them

C AROLYN GR ANT Daily Bulletin

Conservation Officers are looking for the two grizzly bears reported in Kimberley on Monday evening, says CO Joe Carravetta. Carravetta also confirms that the bears were spotted again on Tuesday evening in the area of 106th and 108th in Chapman Camp. “We know they first showed up on Monday night in a fruit tree,” Carravetta said. “The owner picked the fruit and picked up the branches so the bears moved on. They moved to the 106th and 108th area on the edge of town. They were spotted moving through on Tuesday night.” Carravetta says there are no reports that they got into any trouble, however there were Facebook posts on Wednesday morning indicating the grizzlies were in people’s yards. The plan right now, Carravetta says, is to keep an eye on them and protect public safety. “We are not sure if they will continue to stick around. We want

them to move out. If they don’t, we may use rubber bullets, or trap them and relocate them.” Carravetta says that the top priority has to be public safety, but that putting grizzly bears down is usually a last resort. “It depends on the situation. Certainly with grizzly bears you don’t want to have to do that. But sometimes, say it’s a bear at the end of its life cycle, his teeth are worn, he’s skinny. He likely wouldn’t survive relocation. We look at each situation, consult with the wildlife biologist. We try to relocate grizzlies as much as possible, but there are situations where the best thing to do is euthanize them.” As for these particular bears, the best thing the public can do is manage attractants so they move on. “Pick all your fruit, secure your garbage. If we can remove attractants, it might encourage them to move on. And if you see them, please call the RAPP line at 1-877-952-7277.” Carravetta says there

There may soon be a retail business operating out of the old Elko station on Highway 3/95 in Cranbrook. Owned by the City of Cranbrook but operated by the Canadian Museum of Rail Travel, the historic Elko station has contained offices in the past. But now a retail business is interested in leasing the space from the museum, and the city is moving ahead with rezoning that will make that possible. While the railway museum next door is zoned commercial, the Elko station is presently zoned community recreation. City staff will prepare bylaw amendments to change its zoning to community commercial to allow for the retail tenant. At the request of the museum’s

Local NEWS Cranbrook exploration company gets TSX invite Continued from page 1

“The syndicate was invited to ring the bell — likely because of awareness of the syndicate and that they knew our people were going to be in town, because of a mining and exploration conference being held in Toronto,” Labach said. The three other companies in the syn-

dicate are unrelated to Eagle Plains, Labach said, but have combined forces to maximize resources. Both Athabasca Nuclear and Skyharbour Resources have significant land packages along the western margin of the Athabasca basin. “We have a huge land package there, a

very large area to explore which is an expensive endeavour,” Labach said. “Having partners to share the work and risk is a positive development. In these markets it is very difficult to raise exploration capital. So companies are starting to come up with new or unique ways to raise capital to carry out ex-

ploration programs. “What we did here is take advantage of a situation that we found ourselves in: sitting on a very large land package, with Skyharbour sitting on a very large land package — roughly equal to ours — and two other companies that didn’t have any land but wanted to be involved in explor-

ing the area for uranium partly due to the high-grade discovery made nearby at Patterson Lake South. Each of the companies bring different expertise to the syndicate, be it technical expertise in geology or in the financial realm. Two of the companies have more of a financial focus while ours lies in more

the technical end of things. Athabasca Nuclear and Skyharbour contributed to the land and as a result our financial contribution now is less than the other two companies who did not have a land package. “The four of us have entered into an arrangement where everybody can earn an

equal part, but we all contribute differently. This is a similar model to that of Eagle Plains. “When times get tough, maybe you start sharing costs and resources with your neighbours a little more. It’s the same kind of concept. We’re sharing the rewards as well as sharing the requirements,” said Labach.

Album features some of Canada’s best musicians, singers Continued from page 1

G ra nv i l l e - Ma r t i n appears on a number of different instruments (drums are his main instrument) and he is joined by more than a dozen other musicians — friends and colleagues. The music and lyrics on “Mouthparts and Wings” are largely informed by two life-altering events: the death of Granville-Martin’s brother Aaron in 2001, and the birth of his daughter more recently. “There was definitely some potency — or immediacy — behind my songwriting in the wake of Aaron’s death,” Granville-Martin said. “A number of songs were influenced by, or directly deal with that experience. Some of those were the songs that came the easiest to me. “I’ve always been drawn to the dark side in music, so I think that would have come across anyway. But I guess I had something to say, or had something to release.” The joy of his daughter’s birth was tempered by the difficulties one finds when one is suddenly a new parent. “Those first couple years were really hard for my partner Mia (Sheard) and me,” he said. “We didn’t have a lot of support out here at that time, and we were tired and facing a very steep learning curve and a dramatic about-face from the hours and lifestyle we were accustomed to as musicians. “And while there is a song about my ill-prepared, yet thrilled reaction to the arrival of my kid, there are a couple tunes dealing with the isolation, frustration and misanthropy

spawned by that time, too.” The album was a long time in the making — more than 10 years. “Some of the tunes were written shortly after Aaron died, which was in 2001. And one or two before that! The very first recording started, I think in late 2003/early 2004. So by the time the album came out, there were certain lyrics that were written by a much younger me. But art is often about capturing a moment and then letting go.” G ra nv i l l e - Ma r t i n used this project to teach himself to engineer and produce. “I wasn’t about to allow inexperience to be an excuse for lowered expectations. So it just meant time.” The thought-provoking lyrics, coupled with the depth of the orchestration, gives “Mouthparts and Wings” a quality of something new appearing with each repeated listening. Some of the collaborators on “Mouthparts and Wings” are among the top alt-rock artists in Toronto, if not Canada. Ron Sexsmith, who is gaining long-overdue fame as one of Canada’s great songwriters, sings lead vocals on a track (“All Good Things [Come To Those Who Wait”]), as does Martin Tielli of the Rheostatics (“The Prisoner”). Mia Sheard (Granville-Martin’s partner) sings on “Returning Home,” the final track (a gentle optimistic counterpoint to close the album). Some are members of rising bands who’ve taken the Toronto scene by storm — Daniela Gesundheit of Snowblink (“Welcome

corded the bed tracks, but felt his own singing voice didn’t do justice to what he’d done to that point. That’s when I came up with the idea of having people whose instrument was their voice recording the vocals for me,” he said. “As to how I got all these musicians and singers involved, some of them I knew and could just call. They’re friends or we’ve toured together. Instrumental-

ly, it was pretty easy. Finding certain singers was more difficult.” He says it took some research time just to discover the singer. “Because the singer had to fit the tune. The tune always picked the singer. I never approached it from a ‘who would be good for my career’ angle. And with some songs, finding that fit was a challenge. “I learned that the more I stayed out of the way of the singers, the

more they were able to make it their own, which always brings about the best results. I couldn’t be happier with how they all breathed life into these tunes. They really did make them their own.” “Mouthparts is available for sale physically (shipped within three days) and/or as a download through Granville-Martin’s Bandcamp page: http://ryangranvillemartin.

Twelve weeks of summer reads


ack at the beginning of June, as I was driving back to work after lunch, I had one of those light-

bulb ideas. I’d just finished a spectacular book, and I badly wanted to pass on my enjoyment of it to as many people as possible. It occurred to me that, as a newspaper reporter, I had the opportunity at my fingertips. I remembered my childhood years, when I would split my summer days between reading on a beach towel in the backyard, and cooling off in the dimly lit local library, which was housed in an old church, where beams of coloured light from stained glass windows would land upon rows of musty books. In those books I found adventures in faraway lands, met dear friends who explained life’s mysteries to me, and felt that I was personally seeing the sights and sounds of times long past. So, this summer, I decided to once again plunge into the wonderful world of fiction and immerse myself in novels once more. Every week this summer – with one exception – I read a new novel: 12 in all. Almost all of my spare time was spent inside the pages of a new story.

SALLY MACDONALD Through these stories, I had experiences I would never have imagined. I walked along a snowy beach, tormented by mislaid incriminations (“Whiskey Beach”). I stood in a grim courtroom, desperately defending my only son from a lifetime in jail (“Defending Jacob”). I hunkered down in a London bomb shelter, packed with families desperately trying to “keep calm and carry on” in the face of years of onslaught. Then I walked into a German cafe and held a pistol to Hitler’s head (“Life After Life”). I swam beside a beached whale, seeing my reflection in its glassy eye (“She’s Come Undone”). I swayed in a tiny fishing boat that carried me to a beautiful Italian seaside village where I would spend my final

days (“Beautiful Ruins”). As these many tales made their permanent mark in my heart, the stories began to leak into my real life. “Water For Elephants” prompted me to research Cranbrook’s own dramatic circus elephant story. The four-part feature series I wrote from that research will wrap up in tomorrow’s Townsman. And “The Light Between Oceans”, which I began to read on a plane bound for Australia, gently reintroduced me to the landscape and lingo of my upbringing, a much gentler transition than the culture shock that usually hits me when I set foot in Sydney. I’ve found that the world is better seen through the haze of reading. When you sit outside with a book, you pay more attention to the weather, to the colours of summer blooms, to the birds calling over your head. The characters you meet in books can guide you through experiences you’ve never had, and help you understand troubling concepts. Life is better with books. Let’s do it again next summer, shall we? Next June, read the Townsman for an introductory column where this time I will publish the names of the

books I will read so that if you wish, you can read along with me. But to wrap up this year, here are the 12 books I read this summer. I hope you’ve had the chance to read some of my reviews of these novels. I’ve ranked them in order from the ones I enjoyed the least to the best, with my favourite at number one. 12. “Daddy’s Gone A Hunting” by Mary Higgins Clark 11. “Defending Jacob” by William Landry 10. “Don’t Go” by Lisa Scottoline 9. “Whiskey Beach” by Nora Roberts 8. “Water For Elephants” by Sara Gruen 7. “Beautiful Ruins” by Jess Walter 6. “The Light Between Oceans” by M.L. Stedman 5. “The Rules of Civility” by Amor Towles 4. “The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry” by Rachel Joyce 3. “Life After Life” by Kate Atkinson 2. “Cutting for Stone” by Abraham Verghese 1. “She’s Come Undone” by Wally Lamb Till next year, over and out.

Holistic visions of the future

Lieutenant Governor tours Clear Sky, speaks on a subject that’s close to her heart Trish Barnes

Judith Guichon, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, visited Clear Sky Holistic Living Centre last Friday, for a special event that brought together ranchers and others interested in grassland restoration. Guided by Clear Sky’s Catherine Pawasarat and Michelle Heinz, Guichon toured the centre’s Food Forest and Grassland Reclamation projects. Guichon then shared her thoughts about ranching and Holistic Management (HM), a subject close to her heart. “If we had not had the Holistic Management model in place when my late husband died, I would have lost the ranch,” Guichon said. Guichon’s family began practicing HM on its Nicola Valley ranch (and tenured Crown range) in the 1970s. First, they learned the HM principles from Allan Savory, the method’s originator. Then, they introduced HM to ranchers in B.C. by offering workshops themselves. (Guichon’s daughter is now one of Canada’s only bilingual HM consultants.) Holistic Management is a resource management framework that addresses the ‘wholes’ that make up a working system: People, land-base and money. “The main thing about holistic management is planning,” Guichon said. “We spent time considering what we’d like to see if we

The Honourable Judith Guichon (centre), B.C.’s Lieutenant Governor, was at Clear Sky Centre on Friday, September 6. She toured the grassland reclamation plot and food forest, then shared her remarks with ranchers, grassland restoration advocates and environmental educators. She is pictured here with (from left) Leslie Lowe, of Beargrass Landscape Architects, Catherine Pawasarat (Clear Sky Centre), Maurice Hansen, rancher and restoration advocate, and Michelle Heinz (Clear Sky Centre). were to come back in 100 years.” Catherine Pawasarat, Clear Sky’s Chief Visionary Officer, explained why the meditation and retreat centre can benefit from healthy grasslands on its Bull River site, and how holistic management tools can help. “What we thought of as ‘pristine’ nature nine years ago when we moved here turned out to be in pretty bad shape,” Pawasarat said. “We didn’t see anything wrong at first, but we learned the land had been overgrazed.” Pawasarat and her colleagues saw reclamation efforts would help meet the ‘quadruple bottom line’ of Clear Sky’s sustainability mandate, enhancing financial, environmen-

tal, social and spiritual values of the land. The group established a grassland reclamation research plot with the help of local landscape architect Leslie Lowe. They have since hosted workshops about grassland reclamation for community members. (Lowe also helped them establish a one-acre ‘food forest’ — 850 food perennials, including fruit and nut trees, exotic berries, and vegetables.) As for Guichon, even though her duties as Queen’s representative in British Columbia keep her busy most days a year, she’s still a rancher — and HM advocate — at heart. She even sent HRH Prince Charles a copy of Holistic Management and received a hand-writ-

ten thank-you note from him. “There are no ‘retired’ ranchers,” Guichon said. “There are just old ranchers and older ranchers.” She praised ranchers as being dedicated land stewards and encouraged everyone to be bolder in their approach to better land use. “Our biggest mistake is that we are tentative,” Guichon said. “We’re so afraid of making mistakes on the land that we dabble. “You’ve got to be brave to move forward.” For Clear Sky Centre, the next step forward might include hosting a workshop with consensus-building consultant Jeff Goebel, of Triangle Associates. “Jeff specializes in

building consensus— resolving dilemmas between ‘resource wealth’ versus ‘resource scarcity’ perspectives,” Pawasarat said. In the meantime, the Clear Sky team will be tending the Food Forest, settling into its new digs — an annualized geo-solar building they built this year — and offering meditation retreats in September and October. Visit or e-mail for more information. Clear Sky will also offer a Food Forest workshop on October 5 – 6, and a Permaculture Design course from October 13 to 26. For more information, visit www.

Hydro rates going up, ‘but not 26%’ To m F l e tc h e r Black Press

VICTORIA – Energy Minister Bill Bennett has denied reports that BC Hydro rates are poised to go up more than 26 per cent in the next two years. Bennett was peppered with questions Wednesday after one of BC Hydro’s unions released an internal BC Hydro document suggesting a 19 per cent rate increase next year and another six per cent the following year.

The compounding effect would produce an increase of 26.4 per cent over two years. Bennett said the document was prepared for a ministry committee working with BC Hydro on electricity rates, and has been revised three times since the leaked version was created in August. He said the committee has found ways to reduce the rate increases needed to cover extensive construction

and other costs for the utility, but he wouldn’t put a number on the prospective rate increases. The work includes identifying 19 independent power projects whose power purchase agreements are to either be cancelled or deferred. NDP energy critic John Horgan said BC Liberal interference has led to the current situation. “Expensive private power contracts, bil-

lions in Hydro debt hidden in deferral accounts, a sidelining of the independent B.C. Utilities Commission, an 84 per cent cost overrun on the Northwest Transmission Line,” Horgan said. “There is no question that the Liberal government has mismanaged BC Hydro.” Bennett acknowledged that the government’s 2011 intervention to cap rate increases below four per cent for two years has in-

creased the pressure on today’s rates. BC Hydro had been proposing rate hikes of more than nine per cent for 2012 and 2013. “I think we are feeling the impact of decades of difficult decisions by successive governments, Socreds, NDP, BC Liberal,” Bennett said. “All of us have difficulty looking the ratepayer directly in the eye and saying, by the way, we’re going to increase your rates by X.”

SPORTS BRIEFS Angels down Blue Jays 5-4

TORONTO - C.J. Wilson won his eighth straight decision and Kole Calhoun drove in two runs on sacrifice flies Wednesday as the Los Angeles Angels defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 5-4. Calhoun snapped a 4-4 tie with his second sacrifice fly of the game in the eighth inning. Mark Trumbo also hit a two-run home run for the Angels a night after going 5-for-5 with four extra-hits and five runs scored in L.A.’s 12-6 win over the Blue Jays in the series opener. Moises Sierra had two doubles and a triple with an RBI for Toronto. Wilson (16-6) allowed four hits, four walks and four runs (three earned) while striking out six over seven innings to improve to 12-1 in 17 starts since June 14. Blue Jays knuckleballer R.A. Dickey did not factor in the decision after allowing seven hits and four runs in 5 1-3 innings. Toronto reliever Steve Delabar (5-3) walked Mike Trout with one out in the eighth and Josh Hamilton moved him to third with a double to right. Canadian Press

Pitkanen to miss entire NHL season with heel injruy RALEIGH, N.C. - Carolina Hurricanes defenceman Joni Pitkanen will miss the upcoming season as he continues to recover from a broken left heel suffered late last season. The 29-year-old Pitkanen missed the final 13 games of the 2012-13 season with the injury, which occurred in April in a game against Washington when he raced down the ice in an attempt to beat an icing call. Hurricanes president and general manager Jim Rutherford said earlier this month that Pitkanen might not be ready to start his sixth season with Carolina and that he would need another CT scan on his heel. The veteran defenceman has 57 career goals and 225 assists in nine NHL seasons with Philadelphia, Edmonton and Carolina. Associated Press

Stix race open for registration TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The trails are calling as the Six in the Stix mountain bike race nears, which will be based at the upper parking lot at the College of the Rockies. Heading into it’s fourth year, the race has been split up into two days, with the kids race on Saturday, Sept. 21st, followed by the adults on Sunday. It’s the first year that the event has split up the kids and the adults on two different days, which should make managing things a bit easier, said Charlie Cooper, of RM Events, who is partnering up with Favorit Cycles to put on the race. The kids, which can be anywhere between three to 15 years of age, can race on three different courses. For the really young riders that may still be on tricycles or training wheels, there will be a 15-minute circuit on the parking lot pavement. There will also be a 30-minute and 60-minute circuits for the older and more experienced youth riders.

The 30-minute and 60-minute kids courses will be roughly one kilometre long, with the goal of completing as many laps as possible within the allotted time frame. “Really hoping that we get a lot of youth and kids coming out, so basically age three all the way to 15 and any kind of bike goes—a stride bike, a tricycle, a four-wheeler with training wheels,” said Cooper. “This will give the chance for parents to cheer their kids on, on Saturday, so that if one or two parents are participating on Sunday— which we have quite a few families that way— then they can entirely focus themselves on their children.” Parents can sign in at Favorit Cycles on Saturday, before heading into the adult course on Sunday. Sunday’s event features a six-hour solo ride or a two-person relay team over a 12-kilometre course with the goal of completing as many laps as possible.

Skapski returns from prospects tournament with Rangers TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

After getting a brief taste of professional hockey, Mackenzie Skapski knows what it’s going to take to make that next step. The Kootenay Ice goaltender recently returned from a rookie

camp with the New York Rangers, where he suited up for a pair of games in an NHL prospects tournament in Traverse City, in Michigan. “Loved it,” said Skapski. “It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had in hockey and I wouldn’t trade it for

anything. “It was definitely tough and I felt definitely one of the younger guys out there and I didn’t really feel like I was at the 25-year-old or 24-year-old level, but it was really good, just another thing to add under my belt.” The Ice stopper got in two games out of four with the Blushirts; a 4-3 loss against the Carolina Hurricanes and a 4-2 loss against the Columbus Blue Jackets. He turned away 21 shots against the ‘Canes and 31 against the Blue Jackets. The prospects tournament is billed as a rookie event, however, it features players that have a bit of pro experience, or are looking to jump right into the pro ranks. Skapski said he used the tournament as a way

to see what it takes to be in game shape at that level, referencing the struggles that the Kootenay Ice prospects went through at the Tri-City Americans event. “You just saw these guys go through Tri-Cities, and they’re just getting into game shape and kind of mid-season form,” said Skapski, “and that’s exactly what I was doing in Traverse City and I want to get in mid-season form early on and really take off.” Skapski was picked up in the sixth round of the NHL Draft last June by the Rangers, and trekked out a day afterwards for a rookie development camp. Despite some struggles early in the season last year, the Ice netminder seemed unbeatable in the second half, helping the team climb out of the WHL base-

ment and into a playoff spot. Mike Bergren, the goaltending coach for the club, signed on in November of last year and has worked at exploiting Skapski’s strengths and improving other areas of his game. With Bergren at his side in the WHL, Skapski also got the chance to work with Benoit Allaire, the goaltending coach for the Rangers, while at the summer camp and the Traverse City prospects tournament. “He’s really good,” said Skapski, of working with Allaire. “He knows his goaltending and [I’m] just taking bits and pieces from him and applying it to my game.”

Organizers gearing up for Six in the Stix race Continued from page 8

Agata Bendkowska and Steve Kamps, the head coaches for the men’s and women’s College of the Rockies Avalanche volleyball teams, are preparing for a new season.

Avalanche gearing up for new season Tre vor Cr awley Sports Editor

The College of the Rockies have begun a new fall semester, and that means student athletes are hitting the court for the Avalanche volleyball program.

Both Steve Kamps and Agata Bendkowska, the head coach for the men’s and women’s teams, along with their assistants, have had a busy offseason recruiting fresh talent for their respective ros-

ters. Turnover is inevitable, as students graduate out of their programs, or transfer to different post-secondary institutions, however, both squads also feature some returnees

from last season. Below is a breakdown of the new recruits that have signed on for the new season along with athletes who have returned for more action with the Avalanche program.

Women’s Avalanche

Men’s Avalanche

The COTR parking lot will be the central hub of activity, serving as the transition point for relay teams and will include an MC and DJ to liven up the atmosphere. So far, registration numbers are looking pretty good, but there is always room for more, added Cooper. “People are coming from further away and maybe they’ll bring more people with them in the next few days and they’ll be able to sign up some friends and family,” said Cooper, “but also, if we put on a really nice event, they’ll hope-

“We had the Gran Fondo here this past weekend, and hopefully we can get more kids involved with cycling—it seems like there’s a good buzz going on.” Charlie Cooper fully spread the word from where they came from and we can build the event over the next few years.” The Wildhorse Cycling Club will provide a barbecue lunch that in-

cluded with the race package, with proceeds going towards community initiatives such as trail maintenance. “Lots going on with cycling,” continued Cooper. “We had the Gran Fondo here this past weekend, and hopefully we can get more kids involved with cycling—it seems like there’s a good buzz going on.” If any volunteers are interested in helping out with the event, Cooper will gladly find a role for them. He can be reached via email at: charlie@ Anyone interested in competing in the event can register at: www.

Skapski Continued from page 8 Bergren has had limited contact with New York’s goaltending guru, but adds that it always helps to hear what other coaches have to say, especially from someone with Allaire’s background. “He [Allaire] has relayed some information to me about what he’s looking for in certain situations, and some of it mirrors what we’ve done already and some of it’s a little bit different,” said Bergren, “and that’s good, because the feedback that I get from that, tells me that what we’ve done so far is good, now there’s some more things that we can work on.”

“…That’s a guy who’s got an excellent reputation in the NHL and he’s done nothing but pump out Vezina winners, so it’s pretty hard to look at that and not be influenced by that at all.” While prospect Jayden Sittler and Wyatt Hoflin battle for a chance to get some ice time in the preseason, Skapski knows the Rangers will be watching from afar once the regular season gets going. “There’s something in front of me that I can potentially look forward to and my success with the Kootenay Ice will determine that,” Skapski said.

Sports Ice get a good look at future goaltenders in camp Tre vor Cr awley Sports Editor

With an NHL draft pick in the crease for the Kootenay Ice, it’s safe to say Mackenzie Skapski’s job is relatively secure. However, four other netminders came out to the club’s training camp, each with something to prove. Wyatt Hoflin, who backed up Skapski last year, has returned for his sophomore year, and will push Skapski to be at his best, while prospects Jayden Sittler, Jeffrey Veitch and Declan Hobbs worked at leaving a good impression in front of a crowd of scouts and the coaching staff of Ryan McGill and Jay Henderson. All five were split up between three teams for intrasquad scrimmages during training camp, and were also put to work in two sessions with goaltending coach Mike Bergren. “A lot of the stuff we’re doing out there is game situation,” said Bergren, before one such session. “I’ve got all season to

work with the stationary stuff with these guys and I want to kind of cater it to the coaching staff and the the scouts to show them certain situations where you see a lot of plays. “A lot of stuff develops from the half wall down, we’re doing a lot of stuff like that, so we’re showing what the goaltender can do in those situation. Also being able to track and control rebounds is a big thing.” Having worked with Skapski and Hoflin last season, Bergren said he wants to do some fine-tuning with his two immediate pupils, while introducing the other three prospects to WHL level of play with more of an emphasis on teaching. “Get them accustomed to the game, the quickness of the release, learning how to read plays a little bit better,” said Bergren. “A big thing for all of them, is at the Midget level, you can get away with being a little erratic in the crease, but now, because every-

However, the trek out to Abbotsford to see Veitch is too far off the beaten track.

That being said, they all bring something to the table, Bergren said. “They all have certain skills that they excel in, and some that are ample, and some that need improvement,” Bergren continued. “And you’re gonna see that with every goaltender coming through camp, it doesn’t matter where you’re at.” Sittler captured a national championship with the Red Deer Chiefs, winning the Telus Cup in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont, last April, along with fellow Ice prospect Jordan Steenbergen. Veitch, an eighth round pick in the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft, spent some time in the

PIJHL with the Mission City Outlaws. For first timer Declan Hobbs, who was picked up in the WHL Draft back in June, training camp was a bit of a shock to the system, especially going up against WHL level players in the scrimmages. It was hard not to feel a pang of sympathy when guys like Sam Reinhart breezed across the blue line and sniped a well-placed low shot into the corner of the net. However, Hobbs, a third-rounder, who played Bantam last season and will be jumping into Midget, wouldn’t

have it any other way. “I think it’s a big adjustment for the shots and the releases coming quicker, so adjusting to the level of speed for the game—I’m getting there,” Hobbs said. “It’s getting better each game and it’s tough to adjust to it.” Bergren agreed, noting that trial by fire is the best way to get his young goaltenders used to the pace of major-junior hockey. “I think it’s a great learning tool for him. There are going to be situations where he may not have a good game against some of these guys, and he’s been hit up for a couple goals here and there in the scrimmages, but it’s not because he’s playing poorly,” Bergren said. “He’s got a big adjustment to make in terms of the speed of the game, the quickness of the release and just learning how to track at this level, I think is something that goes relatively unnoticed until you actually get out on the ice with

these guys and you realize how much quicker, how much faster, how crisp everything is. And that’s something that, especially coming out of Bantam hockey, that you don’t see at that level.” With Skapski the go-to guy in the crease for the Ice, Hoflin will have to earn his ice time by pushing his netminding partner everyday. Bergren said he was impressed from what he saw from the 18-year-old stopper at camp. “He seems really engaged and really excited to get going and that’s exciting for me, because his first in the league last year and not playing very much, it’s tough,” Bergren said. “It’s easy to get down and easy to kind of lose sight of your goals throughout the season and just accepting a role that maybe you’re not used to, and that’s part of being in the league and growing as a player, so I’m excited to see that he’s come back with a very positive attitude and a good outlook on the season.”

On Saturday, September 7, 21 Cadets, parents and officers were laying bark mulch on the trails of Elizabeth Lake Nature Sanctuary. 552 Key City Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron has been assisting the naturalists and Elizabeth Lake Lodge with the trails since 2008.  Saturday it rained, it poured and just when the cadets thought it was going to dry up, it rained some more. The group worked on the trails behind the ball diamond for 3.5 hours.  The air cadets, youth aged between 12 and 18, are hoping for dry weather on September 15 and 16, as they will be gliding at Canadian Rockies International Airport and participating in an outdoor range. If anyone is interested in joining the Air Cadets, they meet every Tuesday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at #308-10th Avenue South, 2nd floor (New Life Foursquare Church/old 10th Avenue School).

Regional district funds flood recovery Submit ted

Park. RDEK staff will now make application to the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure for an access permit for the park.

The RDEK Board of Directors has approved funding for two separate flood recovery projects in the Hosmer area. The first project will repair a dirt berm that was compromised by the flooding. The berm is on private land and provides a level of protection to Lower Hosmer during high water. The second project will involve the removal of gravel from Lower Hosmer Creek. A large volume of gravel accumulated in the creek during the recent flooding; increasing the potential for future flooding. Both projects will be paid for from Area A’s portion of the Elk Valley Mine Tax Sharing Funds and the work will be completed this fall. In addition, the RDEK is making application for funding for at least three other flood related projects in Area A in Hosmer, near the Elk Valley Airport and Fernie Transfer Station.

New community planning process for Elk Valley The Board authorized the preparation of a new Official Community Plan for the Elk Valley. Over the next 12 months, a new community plan for the unincorporated areas of the Elk Valley will be prepared. The plan will replace the RDEK’s Elk Valley Land Use Strategy (1986) and the Fernie Area Land Use Strategy (2006) and will include the communities of Morrissey, West Fernie, Hosmer and the rural areas surrounding Sparwood and Elkford. It is anticipated that public consultation on the new plan will begin in October. Booth nominated as RDEK representative to CBT Electoral Area F Director Wendy Booth has been renominated as the RDEK representative to the Columbia Basin Trust Board of Directors. Booth’s current

term expires on December 31, 2013. Province requested to extend hotel room tax program The province will be asked to continue to levy a two per cent tax on accommodation purchased within the District of Invermere and a portion of Electoral Area F for another five-year term. In addition, the Board has requested the province include Copper Point Resort in the Hotel Room Tax boundary. Funds collected through the tax go to the Mountain and Valley Inv e r m e r e / Pa n o r a m a Destination Marketing Organization. Transfer of Coal Discovery Trail moves forward RDEK staff will work with the District of Sparwood and Fernie Trails Alliance on the transfer of the Coal Discovery Trail. The District of Sparwood has requested the RDEK transfer the land use permits for the portion of the trail from Hosmer to Sparwood. The Hosmer to Fernie portion of the trail will be transferred to the Trails Alliance.

In support of Rural Development Strategy The RDEK Board has thrown its support behind the establishment of a BC Rural Development Strategy. The Southern Interior Beetle Action Coalition is seeking letters of support for a strategy and will receive one from the RDEK. Letter of thanks The RDEK will send a letter of thanks to Emma and Fraser Young for their generous contribution to the Crossroads Ball Park. The Youngs organized a ball tournament in July and donated $1,000 for facility improvements and upgrades to the ball park. Discretionary Grant in Aid (DGIA) Funding • The National Western Region Mine Rescue Competition will receive $2,000 from the Electoral Area A DGIA Account. • The Lake Koocanusa Community Council will receive $500 from the Electoral Area B DGIA and $500 from the Electoral Area C DGIA accounts to help offset costs associated with the Strategic Planning Session and Annual


General Meeting. • The Cranbrook Archery Club will receive $2,000 from the Electoral Area C DGIA account and $500 from the Electoral Area E DGIA account to assist with expenses for the 2013 World Archery Championships. • The Radium Hot Springs Visitor Information Centre will receive $2,000 from the Electoral Area F DGIA account and $1000 from the Electoral Area G DGIA accounts to offset expenses for summer staffing and operational costs. • Columbia Valley Arts will receive $3500 from the Electoral Area F DGIA accounts and $1000 from the Electoral Area G DGIA accounts to cover costs of a new storage addition for the Pynelogs Cultural Centre.

Dix to announce his future next week Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – Adrian Dix is expected to announce next week whether he will continue as leader of the B.C. NDP. An official in Dix’s office said Tuesday no date or time has been set for the announcement. The NDP caucus met Wednesday (Sept. 11) for the first time since the legislature adjourned in late July, where Dix is expected to inform the party’s MLAs of his decision. Dix has faced calls from within his party to resign since the NDP lost the election to an unpopular B.C. Liberal Party coming off the repeal of the harmonized sales tax and other controversies. NDP finance critic Mike Farnworth said Tuesday he will wait for Dix’s announcement before clarifying his own leadership intentions. “But hey, I finished second last time,” Farnworth said. Energy critic John Horgan and other potential successors have also kept their intentions under wraps as the party prepares for its annual convention in November. Provincial and municipal politicians are gathering in Vancouver next week for the annual Union of B.C. Municipalities convention, at which the opposition leader and premier traditionally give speeches.

Leaders announce huge Sparwood investment Angel a Treharne Fernie Free Press

Sparwood’s downtown is to receive a multi-million dollar facelift, including a major renovation of the mall, a new development including a hotel, restaurant and retail area, plus a walkway connecting the new development to the downtown. Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett made the announcement on Tuesday. The minister hinted that this $15 million investment is just the start, and there may be more to come. The first stage of the development plan includes investments from, Joy Global, Schickedanz West, Teck, BC Hydro and Noort Investments. Jude Smith, Business Development Liaison at the District of Sparwood, said he hoped this investment would act as a springboard to attract a wider mix of quality retail

It’s a big step forward and hopefully will be the catalyst for more.” The first thing that

will happen will be the renovation of Greenwood Mall. Noort Investments, owners of the mall, has committed $500,000 to the redesign and development of the mall including new frontages, parking area development and internal improvements. The biggest investment will be from Joy

Global, who are investing $35 million in a flagship corporate facility. Joy Global is a worldwide leader in high-productivity mining solutions and is a key supplier to Teck. Speaking of the investment, Steve Droste, Regional Manager, Western Operations at Joy Global said, “This

new facility is the next step in our commitment to our customers, to our employees and to the future of mining in the Elk Valley. “The facility will provide our employees with the best environment, tools and equipment which will enable us to provide the highest level of service to our customers. We are excited to be part of this major investment initiative in Sparwood and look forward to the growth and prosperity it will bring to the region.” A pedestrian underpass will connect Joy Global’s facility with the downtown core on the other side of the highway. Regional developer Schickedanz West is investing $14m in the construction of a hotel, retail and restaurant development, which will occupy a prime highway position. They are currently seeking a compatible restaurant to complete

the site. As part of its Beautification Program for municipalities, BC Hydro will contribute approximately $290,000 towards the cost to relocate the existing overhead power line infrastructure to underground in the vicinity of the planned development in Sparwood. Teck has also acquired eight acres of land off Highway 3 for future development. Minister Bennett said: “It is an honour for me to participate in today’s celebration of Sparwood and Sparwood’s future. I know Mayor and Council have worked hard on this development and it is very exciting to see it all come together for them and the whole community. “I am proud to represent such a forward looking community with such strong leadership. And as well, I welcome the new voters who will come with

this significant investment.” Mayor of Sparwood, Lois Halko, said it wasn’t planned that all the investments would come together at the same time, but it was something that had been worked on by District staff for a long time. “There has been a lot of hard work put in leading up to this,” she said. “It’s the most significant economic development and investment since Sparwood became Sparwood. I think all of our staff and Sparwood’s resident swill be very pleased with this. “It has been recognized for a while that the mall, which was built in the early 1970s, is in need of an upgrade. It’ll be a huge perk to get this done.” She said the District will also be contributing by developing a T intersection with a traffic control light at the junction of Highway 43 and Highway 3.

Advocates claim woman in care bitten by mice JOHN COT TER Canadian Press

EDMONTON — A health-care advocacy group is standing by its claim that a disabled woman in a long-term care home in southern Alberta was bitten by mice. The allegation made public earlier this week by Friends of Medicare is being refuted by the organization which runs the St. Therese Villa facility in Lethbridge. Covenant Health has said that while a mouse was seen in the patient’s room, there is no medical evidence that the woman was bitten by rodents. It also said that staff did not document anything. “We stand by what was written in the press release,’’ Shannon Phil-

lips, a Friends of Medicare spokeswoman, said Wednesday. “Our press release contained accurate information. It came from reliable sources who work in the facility.’’ Friends of Medicare said that on Sept. 1, staff saw mice on the face of a woman who has dementia and whose disabilities would have prevented her from removing the rodents. A nest of mice was later found in her closet. The group said the woman was given medication to prevent infection and was suffering emotionally. The allegations have prompted Alberta Health Minister Fred Horne to call an investigation under the Protection for Persons in Care

Act, along with a review into whether health standards were breached at the St. Therese Villa. Dr. Jeff Robinson, chief medical officer for Covenant Health, said officials with the corporation spoke with care staff at the long-term care home, reviewed documentation and consulted a doctor. The doctor concludTHE

ed the patient’s wounds were not caused by an animal bite, but were from a viral condition, Robinson said. “We have no one who has witnessed this woman being bitten by a mouse. We have no evidence that the mouse was on her bed clothes,’’ Robinson said. “When we had a physician examine the lady, he couldn’t see any in-

dication that there were animal bites, and, in fact, it had characteristics that were consistent with a viral rash that had started a week to 10 days before.’’ Phillips said there have been complaints

about mice and bedbugs at St. Therese for more than a year. She said staff spoke to Friends of Medicare about the mice biting the patient instead of reporting it to managers because the workers

feared losing their jobs. “We do not have confidence in an investigation that Covenant Health turned around in 24 hours — a statement made by a doctor on the payroll of Covenant Health,’’ she said.

Orangutans plot trip night before, pass on the route Se th Borenstein Associated Press

WASHINGTON — It’s the ape equivalent of Google Maps and Facebook. The night before a big trip, Arno the orangutan plots his journey and lets others know where he is going with a long, whooping call. What he and his orangutan buddies do in the forests of Sumatra tells scientists that advance trip planning and social networking aren’t just human traits, A new study of 15 wild male orangutans finds that they routinely plot out their next day treks and share their plans in long calls, so females can come by or track them, and competitive males can steer clear. The researchers closely followed the males as they travelled on 320 days during the 1990s. The results were published Wednesday in the journal PLoS One. Typically, an orangutan would turn and face in the direction of

This photo provided by Carel van Schaik shows the orangutan Arno in the jungle of Sumatra in 1998 looking in the direction he intends to travel the next day and letting out a long whooping call to alert others of his route just in case they need to follow him or stay clear. his route and let out a whoop, sometimes for as long as four minutes. Then he’d go to sleep and 12 hours later set on

the heralded path, said study author Carel van Schaik, director of the Anthropological Institute at the University of

Zurich. “This guy basically thinks ahead,’’ van Schaik said. “They’re continuously updating their Google Maps so to speak. Based on that, they’re planning what to do next.’’ The apes didn’t just call once, but they keep at it, calling more than 1,100 times over the 320 days. “This shows they are very much like us in this respect,’’ van Schaik said. “Our earliest hominid ancestor must have done the same thing.’’ Scientists had seen such planning in zoos and controlled experiments, but this study provides solid evidence of travel planning in the wild, said Frans de Waal of Emory University, who was not part of the study. Van Schaik said he and colleagues happened upon the trip calls by accident nearly 20 years ago, first with the dominant male Arno, who they followed more than the

other 14 males. They waited to publish the results because he thought few people would believe orangutans could do such planning. But in recent years, the lab and cap-

tivity studies have all shown such planning. Based on previous studies and monitoring, van Schaik figured the male lets the world know his plans so females can come to him

or stay close. Some females may want to stay within earshot in case they are harassed by other males and need protection. Others can come to mate.



Prince Harry tells children he finds its ‘fantastic’ being an uncle ASSOCIATED PRESS

LONDON — Prince Harry says he loves being an uncle, telling children at an awards ceremony that he’d just witnessed the baby who may one day be king crack a smile. Harry, who was pushed back to fourthin-line to the British throne following the birth of his brother’s son, Prince George, said

Wednesday he’d just visited the 1 1/2-monthold royal, who was taking a bath. Harry told 9-yearold Nikki Christou that it was the “first time I’ve seen him smile.’’ The prince seems to have warmed to his new family role, telling Mary Kirk, the mother of another child, that being an uncle was “fantastic.’’

Reach New Heights in the East Kootenay!

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Pressure builds, and you could be overwhelmed. Follow your instincts with someone at a distance. You might be slowed down by a situation that demands a different approach. You will find it -- just think outside the box. Tonight: Treat yourself to a ticket to an upcoming event. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Your mind needs to focus on a creative project, whether you choose to stay at your desk or at home. Otherwise, your need to wander off with a close loved one will take a higher priority. Make that OK, as you don’t often respond to impulsiveness. Tonight: Togetherness is the theme. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Interactions with a partner will focus on your priorities. Learn from these exchanges, as they could teach you how to be more effective in integrating the different facets of your life. Make a point of avoiding black-andwhite thinking. Tonight: Catch up

on emails, phone calls, etc. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Say what you need to say, but don’t carry around a grievance about someone or his or her actions. Let it go; otherwise, a problem might develop. Communication might be cold and unemotional, yet it’s effective with others who are aware of the situation. Tonight: Hang out with your best friend. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) When you decide to kick back and have a good time, several responses will come forward from your friends who have the ability to let go. Those who hang back might have prior obligations. Be nice to them, as they probably are envious! Tonight: The party goes on. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You would like to be as free as a bird and have everyone else follow you. Unfortunately, a domestic situation might stand in your way. Deal with this personal matter directly, but try not to tear down an emotional foundation. Tonight: Make a to-do list for tomorrow.

For Better or Worse

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You have a choice of whether to hold yourself back or reveal more of what you keep hidden. Very few people are comfortable expressing their vulnerabilities, but it might be important for you to do so at this juncture. Tonight: Continue a conversation over a long dinner. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You can be driven, and at times even obsessive. Your focus today appears to be on a money matter, which could involve changing banks, evaluating a risk or following your intuition. Evaluate the risks seriously. Tonight: If your intuitive side tells you to buy ice cream, do so! SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) The Moon in your sign is akin to you playing a trumpet and announcing your arrival. You can’t avoid being noticed today! Someone who has clout in your life easily could become resentful and cause a hassle. Try to be more subtle around this person. Tonight: With friends. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You might be in a position where

you need to back away and be more of an observer. Know that by tomorrow morning, you no longer will need to hold back. Don’t forget to check in with an expert, as travel in the near future becomes possible. Tonight: Get a good night’s sleep. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Friends always surround you, but right now there seems to be more of them. The issue will be trying to juggle a private matter while still wanting to be carefree and available at the same time. Don’t worry -- you will figure it out. Tonight: Be where the action is. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Understand that others see you as a stronger force and leader than you might believe yourself to be. Perhaps that perception is partly responsible for so many calls, requests and your ongoing popularity. Say “yes” to an invitation. Tonight: A quiet chat with a loved one.

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: My dad’s cousin, “John,” is an internist from another state. During my younger sister’s wedding weekend, Dr. John stayed with us. Two days before the wedding, my sister was stressed and couldn’t sleep. John offered her Ambien. The pill was blue and in a blister pack. He gave her two, even though the label states you shouldn’t take them unless you can get six hours of sleep. My sister absolutely didn’t have time for that. I have a prescription for Ambien, and it’s white. I have no idea what John gave my sister. At the hairdresser’s the next day, she was totally zoned out. Isn’t it wrong for physicians to dispense such medications without a prescription? There have been several incidents in the past where John has given prescription medications to my family members without seeing them. He once sent my dad expired ointments for a rash that turned out to be shingles. When my mother had pneumonia, he told her to take flu medication. He didn’t examine them, nor did he write a prescription. What do you think I should do? -- Furious and Concerned Dear Furious: First of all, Ambien can come in different colors, depending on the dosage. We assume these are sample drugs that John happens to have handy. The real issue is that your family is eager to take advantage of John’s ability to provide such medication for free and without needing to see their regular physician. They have the option not to follow his advice or take what he offers, but they prefer the convenience. Dear Annie: You’ve printed letters about theater and concert patrons who stand up or squash you in your seat. I have a better one. I sat in the worst seat on Broadway. I understand “obstructed view.” This was NO view. I was in the front row. All I could see was a staircase and the backs of actors who were seated in chairs on stage. I was brokenhearted. I found an usher at intermission and demanded to be seated elsewhere. She told me this is what happens when you buy discount tickets at the last minute. But she took me to the last row of the theater and said, “This way you can see the terrific part with the mirror.” I gasped, “There’s a mirror?!” The second act was great, although I had to ask the people next to me to stop texting during the performance. Afterward, I found the usher and thanked her. Then I wrote the box office manager and the theater owners and asked that they please stop selling this seat. I haven’t heard back. -- Don’t Stick a Broadway Baby in a Corner Dear Baby: Most theaters have at least one horrible seat, but it’s hard to know that when you purchase at the last minute, especially when those tickets are discounted. There’s a reason those are the seats that are left. Good for you for speaking up and finding a kind usher willing (and able) to seat you elsewhere. Dear Annie: “Still Waiting” complained that few people reciprocate dinner invitations anymore. Since moving to an active senior community two years ago, my husband and I have hosted about 18 dinners in our home, everything from casual suppers to large parties. Reciprocation in these friends’ homes has been rare, but we don’t care. We’ve enjoyed every one of the meals. We don’t have special cooking skills, and hosting a dinner takes time and effort, but it’s fun and has the added advantage of cozy chats that don’t happen in a noisy restaurant. -- W.

In Memoriam

In Memoriam

It’s been a year since you’ve been taken from us, my mom,

Betty Stewart. A Mother is someone special who is thought of lovingly and remembered in the warmest way whatever the day may be. Sometimes, when life gets busy, we forget to tell the people we care about most just how important they are to us. But even when it’s gone unsaid, we hope you know how dear you are to us and how deeply we’ll always love you. Your Daughter Lori & Family

Obituaries Tyler Bradley Nelson (Jenks) 1981 - 2013 Tyler, born May 15, 1981, passed away peacefully with his mom by his side on Monday, September 9, 2013. For 10 months Tyler fought a courageous battle with cancer.

Tyler grew up in a close loving family surrounding and he always enjoyed spending time at his family home. He enjoyed life and lived it to the fullest. He was always there to lend a helping hand to anyone. Tyler grew up in Kimberley with very special friends, many of whom, spent their last days with him at the hospital. While growing up, Tyler played hockey and baseball. Tyler loved spending summers camping with his family at McNair Lake. Later, Tyler enjoyed sledding, boating and mud bogging. Tyler was famously known for his passion of Ford trucks. He built them, bought them, drove them and blew them up at the mud bogs! After high school, Tyler was employed by Precision Drilling for 14 years on rig #159. He started as a roughneck and proudly worked his way up to becoming the rig manager. Left to mourn Tyler’s passing are his mom Marie, son Austin, cousin Lori, his dog Biscuit and all of his many close friends. Tyler was predeceased by his loving father Ed in 2005 and his little brother Dylan in 2010. A Celebration Of Tyler’s Life will be held for his family and friends at a later time.

Please join us as we celebrate a life well lived and a person well loved.

May 1935 - September 2012 It just seems like yesterday that I whispered in your ear, “So long for now sweetheart we will meet again soon” As I remember those words today I also remember the one person I have loved for an eternity, and that is you my darling. They say as time goes by the hurt of missing you gets easier. I don’t ever want the hurt to get easier because along with the hurt comes the wonderful memories of the life we shared together. Those memories of playing and laughing with our grandchildren, playing and laughing together, these memories will stay with me forever. Thank you my darling for the wonderful memories you have left behind for me. I will always love you Sadly missed by beloved Wife Ena; Children - Marianne, Cathy, Robbie, Kathy and Son-In Law Barry Bauer; Grandchildren - Ryan, Brennon, Aaron, Lily, Marshall, Chris and Evan

We say a loving good bye to Antinesca (Toni) Swinney (nee Grillo) who left us September 5, 2013. Mom was born in a small village in northeast Italy on January 25, 1923, the youngest of 5 children. She is predeceased by her loving husband Willard, brother America Grillo, sisters Misurina Pagurut, Sarah Lovisotto and Teresina Piovesan. She is survived by her only child Wendy (Ron) and grandsons Tavis (Chavely) and Dylan. Toni immigrated to Canada in 1937 with her mother and two sisters. They joined her father in Cranbrook. Mom worked in the kitchen of the Cranbrook hospital where one of the nuns gave her the name Toni, and she has been Toni ever since. She remembers a kitchen garden, fresh chickens, starting boilers at 5 am and making 25 pies in the mornings. In 1946 mom married the love of her life, a lanky farm boy from southern Alberta. They had a wonderful marriage until Willard’s passing in 1998. Mom was a wonderful cook and took great pride in transforming garden produce into delicious meals. Mom and dad spent countless pleasurable hours together in their garden. Mom was a loyal member of St Mary’s Parish for about 65 years, until she moved to Castlegar to be closer to family. Toni spent the last 11 years of her life making new friends and meeting old ones at Castle Wood Village. One of her most pleasant activities was spending time in the beautiful gardens tended by the residents. A celebration and remembrance of Antinesca will be held on September 16 at St. Mary Catholic Church (Cranbrook) at 1 p.m.. Condolences may be left for the family at Mark Memorial Funeral Services in care of arrangements (250) 426-4864

Sharon Lennox 1944 ~ 2013 Sharon Joan Lennox of Bragg Creek, passed away in Lethbridge, AB on Monday, September 9th, 2013 at the age of 69. Sharon was born March 23, 1944 in Hamiota, MB, daughter of Harry Baily and Ruby Baily (nee Gould). She is survived by her two daughters Paige and Tara and beloved grandson Myles (Joe Eagle Tail Feathers). She also leaves behind her brother Doyle Baily (Lynda), sister Jean Menzies, nieces and nephews: Karen Dubois (Lloyd, Aydyn, Chris and Tyson), Kari-Lou Antolic (Eric and Nick), Mark Baily, Kyle Menzies, Kristi Baily (Don and family), Tracy McGillis (Corey and family), Denise Klots and family, Doug Baily and family, Dallas Baily and family and sister-in-law Jean Baily. She was predeceased by her mother and father, her brother Norm Baily, brother-in-law Harold St. Jean and sister-in-law Mary Baily. Having grown up in Oak River, MB, Sharon was always a spirit to whom people were drawn. With a positive outlook and an infectious energy, she was the light in her parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; eyes. Throughout her life Sharon was truly a giving person, in all senses of the word. She became a nurse and worked at the Rockyview Hospital until she and Al Lennox had their daughters. When they moved to an acreage outside of Cochrane to raise their family, Sharon became a pillar in the community. She especially loved her involvement with organizations close to her heart like the Nuclear Disarmament group, the Mustard Seed and the United Church Junior Choir. Sharon gave of herself and was heavily involved with her daughtersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sports lives and supported them unconditionally in all they did in their lives. Once her daughters were grown, Sharon achieved her Healing Touch Practitionerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license and took that as well as her nursing experience into the Palliative Care setting. Her presence brought peace and comfort to patients and their families during their time of transition. Her generous spirit and beauty touched many lives. Sharon will be warmly remembered for her dedication to her family and friends, her free spirit and her sense of humor. Her home in Bragg Creek was very precious to her and many were drawn to itsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; special energy. She will be deeply missed by so many.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 6:30pm on Friday, September 13, 2013 at the GALT MUSEUM, 502 1st Street South, Lethbridge. Donations may be made in her name to St. Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Palliative Care Unit at 1400 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 9 Avenue South, Lethbridge, AB T1J 4V5. The family will make a donation in Sharonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name to the Lethbridge Montessori School for every dollar donated to St. Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on behalf of her grandson, Myles.

She was born on February 15, 1930 in Vancouver, BC. For 25 years she worked as a licensed practical nurse and that career began at a TB hospital in BC. She continued her vocation in the 1970â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at the Eric Cormack Multiple Disabilities Treatment Centre in Edmonton, Alberta where she worked with mentally challenged young adults. From there, her career brought her to the New Born Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ward at the Gray Nunâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Edmonton General Hospital. A few years thereafter, she expanded her practical and theoretical training to the Geriatric and Palliative Care for the elderly. That experience got her involved in assisting in the assessment of the grade of affliction that Dementia and/or Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease had and how it impacted various cases that were brought in. After retiring, Mary cared for the elderly and the sick in their homes at Campbell River, BC and in communities nearby. Later on she took care of mentally challenged persons in our home for the BC Government Social Services Dept. on a contractual basis. However, there were many additional cases referred to her to serve as a relief/respite nurse to other caregivers on an hourly or a daily basis for mainly mentally, but also physically challenged patients. Mary, who had a heart of gold, loved us all equally without exceptions and she will be dearly missed by her husband, son, daughters, grandchildren, great grandchildren and families as well as her sister and her family and by her friends.

In the 1980â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sharon became involved in Native spiritual traditions with the initial guidance of Chief John Snow. Sharon was truly an advocate and lived the teaching every day. She was quietly proud of having Sundanced with Elder Eva McKay with the Sioux Valley Nation in Manitoba in the 1990â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Sharonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spiritual path was linked to many gifted people and we thank everyone who contributed to her journey.

Obituaries Shirley Anne ATWOOD 1931 - 2013

On the afternoon of Wednesday, September 4, 2013, Shirley Anne Atwood passed away at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital surrounded by her family at the age of 82 years. She was the first of six children born to John and Anne (Klein) Campsall at the St. Eugene Hospital on April 19, 1931. Shirley lived her whole life in Cranbrook. Shirley married Ray Atwood on September 11, 1951 and was blessed with two children. Shirley was an absolutely wonderful homemaker who loved her garden and won many prizes at the fall fairs for her extraordinary vegetables. She also found pleasure in finding a good fishing hole or a great berry patch and above all, just being an extraordinary mom and grandma. Some people will also remember Shirley as a life guard at the old swimming pool on 14th Avenue. She left an impression on everyone that new her and will truly be missed. Shirley was predeceased by her beloved husband, Ray in 2002 and by her most cherished son, Lee Atwood in June 2006. She was also predeceased by her brother Hank Campsall in August 2013. Left to cherish her memory is her daughter; Shannon (Grant) Henderson and her two dearly loved grandchildren; Colby and Danni. Also left behind are her siblings; John (Donna) Campsall, Bob (Lorraine) Campsall, Maureen Campsall and Marlene (Bert) Godlonton as well as many nieces and nephews. Momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very special friends, Esther Lindhorst and Naomi Girvin will also miss her and cherish her memory. A Celebration of Shirleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Life will be held on Saturday, September 21, 2013 from 11 am to 3 pm at Shirleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home - 529 Hurry Ave., Cranbrook.
