Former Cranbrook men among Hell’s Angels arrested in Spanish bust KIM BOLAN Vancouver Sun
Two former Cranbrook residents are among the four Canadian Hells Angels accused of attempting to distribute 500 kilograms of cocaine in Spain. Two full-patch members — Jason Cyrus Arkinstall (formerly of Cranbrook, now of Mission) and Chad John Wilson of Haney — were among the men arrested in a coffee bar by Spain’s National Police. The othermen facing charges in Spain are Scott Smitna (formerly of Cranbrook) and Michael Dryborough, associates of the Hells Angels in Mission and Haney. Spain’s Interior Ministry revealed details of the investigation Saturday and released a video of the arrests of the four, but did not identify them by name or hometown. The video shows police running into the café, wrestling the men from their chairs to the ground and handcuffing them. Police did not say when the arrest happened. The Spanish government said the four were involved in an attempt to smuggle cocaine from Colombia to SUBMITTED
A SUMMER OF GOOD DEEDS: Natasha Rose, 8, had a summer of doing good for others. She raised money during a family garage sale to donate to the Calgary Zoo, supplementing that by selling her crafts and putting out a donation box. Natasha ended up raising $60 for the zoo. Just before school started, Natasha cut off her long hair and has donated that to “Locks of Love,” where it will be made into wigs for children who have lost their hair due to medical circumstances.
Cranbrook councillor heads to UBCM championing two-tiered policing A RNE PE TRYSHEN Townsman Staff
A motion that could see a two-tiered policing system put in place in the province will go before the Union of British Columbia Municipalities at a meeting this week. Coun. Sharon Cross first put forward the motion in council and was headed to the meeting in Vancouver, which goes from Sept. 16 - 20.
Cross said she put forth the motion as policing costs all over B.C. are rising. “With the new 20-year agreement (with the RCMP), the cost to municipalities is going to continue to rise and we felt that we needed to do something different in terms of looking at policing models,” Cross said. She alluded to Alberta, which has the Peace Officer Act. “What they really have is a
two-tier policing system,” she said. “The RCMP deal with major crimes: drugs, guns and gangs. “That allows the peace officers to deal with other provincial and municipal acts such as traffic safety issues, community engagement around youth, community outreach programs and bylaws.”

Officer charged over Cranbrook shooting has first court appearance TOW N S M A N S TA F F
Court proceedings have began for a Cranbrook police officer charged over a shooting last October. Cst. Richard Drought did not appear in person for his first court hearing in Cranbrook Provincial Court on Monday, September 16. Drought faces charges of unlawfully discharging a firearm over an October 2 on-duty shooting in Cranbrook. Drought is represented by Vernon lawyer Richard Hewson. A senior prosecutor from Victoria is in charge of the case for the Crown. The court case will next be in Cranbrook court on Monday, October 21.
Cst. Drought has been charged with intentionally discharging a firearm into a motor vehicle, knowing that another person was in the motor vehicle, and of intentionally discharging a firearm while being reckless as to the life or safety of another person. The man injured in the incident was Nickolas Bullock. According to RCMP statements at the time, a police officer was stationed at the southwest end of Cranbrook conducting a road block when he saw a suspect vehicle. The officer tried to pull over the vehicle; when it did not stop, the officer gave chase.

Grizzlies reported in Marysville Monday C A R O LYN G R A N T Daily Bulletin
Townsman file photo/Annalee Grant
Members of the Independent Investigations Office scour the scene of an incident in Cranbrook on Oct. 3, 2012. The IIO’s report has led to charges against a local RCMP officer.
Officer makes first appearance Continued from page 1 That chase ended in a rural Cranbrook driveway. The officer allegedly discharged his firearm. Bullock, 26, was allegedly injured but appeared in Cranbrook Provincial Court one week later. The 17-year-old female oc-
cupant of the vehicle was not injured. Civilian police watchdog the Independent Investigations Office was called in to investigate the police-involved shooting. On April 3, the Independent Investigations Office forwarded a report to the Criminal Justice Branch, which they do only
when they feel there may be grounds to lay charges. Meanwhile, Bullock has pleaded guilty to four charges in relation to the same incident, including dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and flight from a police officer. He will be sentenced in Port Coquitlam on Tuesday, October 8.
In the continuing saga of Kimberley’s wandering bruins, two grizzly bears were spotted in Marysville just before 6 a.m. Monday morning. Sharon Ekskog says her husband saw them walking down 310th Avenue in Marysville as he was heading to work. “He called to let me know,” she said. “They weren’t aggressive, they were just lumbering down the street making the dogs go nuts.” The bears have been spotted around Kimberley daily for the past week or so. They have been reported along Rotary Drive, along Mark Creek and near

Conservation officers are hoping to be able to relocate two grizzlies, currently at large in Kimberley. McKim School. Conservation officers want to avoid putting the bears down if at all possible. They do have traps out but so far have been unsuccessful in luring the
high-profile Hells Angel. He was most recently in court in Calgary, where he was acquitted in 2011 of uttering threats against police. The judge in the case said Arkinstall was “physically abused” by officers during his arrest and that an anonymously recorded video contradicted the testimony of the cops. In B.C., Arkinstall also successfully challenged a law that allowed city electrical inspectors to search houses for marijuana grow operations without warrants. Surrey city inspectors and police first attempted to enter his house back in 2005, but Arkinstall refused to let them in. They tried again 2006 and 2007 on the grounds that the high power consumption could mean pot was growing inside and the neighbourhood at risk.
Arkinstall agreed to allow inspectors in, but not Surrey RCMP. The inspectors would not go in unescorted. BC Hydro later cut off the family’s electricity, leading to a three-year court battle. Arkinstall, 40, has an extensive criminal record and has been convicted of offences ranging from assault causing bodily harm to trafficking in cocaine, for which he was sentenced to 18 months in jail on July 28, 2005. Wilson, the other full-patch Angel arrested in Spain, pleaded guilty in South Dakota in 2009 of being an alien in possession of a firearm. He was sentenced to four years in prison. Wilson was earlier acquitted, along with fellow HA member John Midmore, of attempted murder for an Aug. 8, 2006 gunfight with members of the rival Outlaws biker
gang. Wilson and Midmore claimed they acted in self-defence when they wounded five people linked to the Outlaws. At the time, Wilson was a member of the San Diego chapter, but he returned to B.C. and joined the Haney group.

Officials alleged the drug conspiracy was linked to a member of the San Diego chapter of the Hells Angels, of which Wilson is a former member. Police had been aware of the conspiracy for several weeks and had been watching since July 30 as the operation unfolded. Officers searched two vans loaded with cocaine and then arrested the Canadians. Police also seized encrypted smartphones. Two other people were arrested at another location. Spain’s National Police worked with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, Europol and French officials on the investigation. The Vancouver Sun has learned the RCMP was contacted after the arrests to provide information on the four men. Arkinstall has been a

UBCM motion calls for 2-tier policing Continued from page 1 Cross said when Alberta implemented the Act, Okotoks hired four peace officers to start. The officers worked directly with the RCMP in
the same building. “Okotoks realized a tremendous cost savings, to the point where the peace officers were self-supported through
all the ticketing and things they engaged in,” she said. “It really offset the municipal costs of policing.” She said she hopes to see the motion suc-
ceed to open the door for the province to look at a new model. There is the draft B.C. Policing and Safety Plan, which suggests looking at more special

We are hoping the public will want to get dressed up and make it a night out.” James says that the past season of Kimberley Summer Theatre had a budget of upwards of $170,000. Going to a full season will require a quarter million dollar budget. “People may not realize that 65 per cent of that will come from ticket sales. Grant bodies have been incredibly generous but that’s only about 20 per cent of the budget. It takes community support — whether buying tick-

ets or making a donation. There were some very generous people who surprised us this summer. “My plan is to build a strong donor base.” James also plans to use the gala as a launch pad for the rest of the season. There are plans to bring in Jeff Hyslop, who sang the Phantom in London. He also plans to bring in Jackson Davies from the Beachcombers for a run of Norm Foster’s gold comedy ‘The Foursome’ next spring. “I think it’s very exciting that people from outside want to come here and be a part of this. We’re excited to be presenting all year.”

ties don’t have that.” The motion has been approved by Cranbrook City Council and the AKBLG. At the moment, municipalities pay the RCMP, but Cross said the ticketing is shared with the province. “We already hire them, so why doesn’t the municipality just take that over with the
second tier?” she said. “In Cranbrook we don’t have a full contingent and that’s kind of been the case for a while. So we kind of pay the overhead costs but are not getting the full benefits.” She said this would free up the RCMP to pursue major crimes. “It’s a major issue all over B.C.” she said.

Evolving Kimberley Summer Theatre from a summer season into a year-round venture — the Kootenay Performing Arts Company — requires a tremendous amount of commitment from the board and company director Tony James. It also requires a leap of faith — faith that local audiences will support the venture. That support can be shown immediately by simply purchasing a ticket for the upcoming gala at the Kimberley Conference Centre on September 28 — Classical Enchantment. The gala will feature violin virtuoso Pablo Diemecke, along with ballet dancer Sarah Murphy-Dyson and others. There will be a private, invitation only event at Chateau Kimberley on Friday evening, master classes with the performers on Saturday afternoon and the gala on Saturday evening. Tickets are available at the Platzl box office and by calling 250-427-4080. “This gala is first and foremost a fundraiser,” James said. “There will be a silent auction, and a full two-hour performance with some really moving pieces including a Pablo solo with Sarah dancing. There will be a post-re-

My wife and I were returning from a short holiday in the U.S. and had just passed through Cranbrook returning to Lacombe, Alberta. We were driving an older model motorhome, which broke down at Fort Steele and would not restart. We contacted RiteWay RV mobile services and Rob was there very shortly, even though he had another commitment in about an hour or so. It was very hot but he crawled inside and out of the motorhome trying to locate the problem. He finally did and managed to jury rig a temporary electrical connection to get us back to Cranbrook. He then proceeded to lead us back to town (he had to cancel his prior commitment) to Farbrook Auto Wrecking where a new ignition switch was found very quickly. As if he hadn’t done enough already, he came to the campground where we had stayed overnight and again jumped started the engine and led us once again back to Farbrook’s. And, thanks to the great service there, we were on the road home again in an hour. Just wanted to give a great big thank you to Rob and also the boys at Farbrook Auto Wrecking for going above and be-
yond for us complete strangers! So good to know there are such good people in the City of Cranbrook! We definitely plan on returning! Anne and Murray Nixon Lacombe, Alberta
Area C business
In July I had a visit from the BC tax assessor to look at my property. He told me that, in his opinion, my business was going to be re-allocated as commercial or industrial. I asked what that would do to my taxes, and he said “a substantial increase.” He also indicated that he had already visited a number of small business operations in Area C, and they may also be changed. I immediately sent Bill Bennett a letter, and a copy to Rob Gay, Area C Director. Bennett’s office researched my questions and gave me some advice. Rob Gay has yet to respond. On Friday, Sept. 13, there was an article on Page 1 of the Townsman that cleared this up for me. The Mayor of Cranbrook says “keep industrial business
inside the city.” There will now be only two categories of home-based business allowed in Area C — such as child care and bed & breakfast — but major homebased businesses such as portable sawmill, trade contracting and metal working would not be allowed. Each of these would be approved on a site to site basis. Cranbrook City Council decided it would not recommend approval of the Regional District’s bylaws that would permit major home-based businesses in Area C. Mayor Wayne Stetski, Councillors Sharon Cross, Gerry Warner and Bob Whetham voted in favour, while Councillor Angus Davis was opposed. The City needs to know that the population of Area C spends a lot of money in this city. There is a population of 5,713 (as of 2011) living in Area C that will be directly affected by this. It’s probably the worst thing that could happen to the area. You need to read the article in the Townsman and perhaps plan on attending RDEK meetings, where you can voice your opinions. This will affect Area C first, maybe the other areas after. Bill Luke Area C, Cranbrook
Rape is an African problem L ast May, with considerable trepidation, I wrote an article about what seemed to be extraordinarily high rates of rape in Africa. The original data came from a study by South Africa’s Medical Research Council in 2009 which found that more than a quarter of South African men — 27.6 percent — admitted that they had committed rape. Almost half of those men had raped two or three women or girls. One in thirteen had raped at least ten victims. Over the next couple of years, I ran across a couple of other less detailed studies suggesting that the problem was not just South African. A report from the eastern Congo in 2012 said that over a third of the men interviewed — 34 per cent — had committed rape, and an older report from Tanzania found that 20 per cent of the women interviewed said they had been raped (although only onetenth as many rapes were reported to the police). So I wrote a piece called “An African Iceberg” in which I said that this was a phenomenon that needed urgent investigation continent-wide — but it did occur to me to wonder if there were similar icebergs in other developing countries. The only figures that were available for developing countries elsewhere were official ones, and those normally only record the number of women who tell the police they have been raped. Most don’t. Women are reluctant to report rape in any society, and in traditional societies much more so. The South African study was the only one that had adopted the strategy of asking men directly. Maybe if the same sort of study were done in other continents, I thought, it would return equally horrifying figures. And lo! Somebody else had the same thought, and the resources to do something about it.
The new report, conducted under the auspices of four United Nations agencies cooperating as “Partners for Prevention”, was published last week in the online version of “The Lancet Global Health”, a respected British medical journal. The study was undertaken quite specifically to learn if the South African figures were duplicated in developing countries outside Africa. The researchers chose six countries in the region: China, Gwynne Asia-Pacific Cambodia, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Indonesia and Dyer Papua New Guinea. As in the South African study, the word “rape” was not used in the questionnaire. The 10,178 men interviewed were asked if they had ever “forced a woman who was not your wife or girlfriend at the time to have sex” or “had sex with a woman who was too drunk or drugged to indicate whether she wanted it.” There were further questions about forcing a wife or girlfriend to have sex (which is also rape), about gang rape, and about raping males, but for simplicity’s sake let us stick with the questions about what the researchers called “single perpetrator rape” of a woman who was neither wife nor girlfriend. The answers varied from country to country, but the overall picture was clear. Africa (or at least South Africa) is all alone out there. In most of the Asian countries involved in the study, between 2 and 4 per cent of the men interviewed said that they had raped a “non-partner” woman. That falls into the same range that prevails, one suspects, in most developed countries (although their reported cases of rape are much lower). There were some local peculiarities, like the fact that in rural Bangladesh men are more likely to get raped than women.
Letters to the Editor
tuesday, SEPTEMBER 17, 2013
China came in surprisingly high, with 6 per cent of the men interviewed admitting to rape, but that may be related to the growing surplus of males in a society where the gender ratio has become very skewed: there are 99 large Chinese cities where more than 125 boys are born for every 100 girls. But Papua New Guinea was right up there with South Africa: 26.6 per cent of the men interviewed had committed “single perpetrator rape” of a non-partner woman. And the other numbers were just as startling: 14 per cent of PNG men had participated in a gang rape, and 7.7 per cent had raped a man or boy. So Asia as a whole is quite different from Africa on this count — but PNG is practically identical. What is so special about Papua New Guinea? It is a country with an extravagantly large number of different tribes and languages. It is an extremely violent country, where most people live in extreme poverty. It is a place where the law is enforced only sporadically, and often corruptly. And it is a place where traditional tribal values, patriarchal to the core, reign virtually unchallenged among a large part of the population. Remind you of anywhere? Well, you already suspected that this was at the root of it, didn’t you? You just didn’t want to say so, for fear of being accused of being racist, anti-African or something of that sort. But it does need to be said, loudly and repeatedly. Women and girls are more likely to be the victims of sexual violence in Africa than almost anywhere else, and the only way to change that is to change the behaviour of African men. By persuasion if possible, but also by enforcing the law. Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist whose articles are published in 45 countries.

Bills come due at BC Hydro
hen Christy Clark became premier in 2011, one of her first priorities was to delay steep increases in BC Hydro rates. BC Hydro was heading to the B.C. Utilities Commission to apply for rate increases totalling 32 per cent over three years. This, obviously, was a problem for an unelected premier whose single message was that she was good for families, and who faced an election in two years. The government’s Mr. Fix-It, Rich Coleman, first tried to delay a couple of expensive seismic upgrades, adding to the long history of political fiddles that pushed off expensive problems. BC Hydro’s engineers soon convinced him that if the creaky old Ruskin and Campbell River dams were to bust in a quake, it wouldn’t be good for families downstream. Coleman scraped up some internal savings in the vast utility and met Clark’s pre-determined target of keeping rate increases below four per cent in the pre-election period. Mission accomplished, as George W. Bush might have said. Then last week, an August working paper on the need for BC Hydro rate hikes was leaked. It showed BC Hydro making a case for new increases totaling 26 per cent
over two years. The leak came via the Canadian Office and Professional Employees local 378, the BC Hydro inside staff union that has a history of mostly juvenile attacks on the B.C. Liberal government. Bill Bennett, the current energy minister, spent the next couple of days repeating to anyone who would listen that this initial proposal had already been rejected, and that work was well along to make the rate increase more palatable. BC VIEWS Perhaps it’s back to where it was in 2011. Tom COPE 378 and the NDP Fletcher played their rehearsed roles. Both tried to blame the situation on private power contracts. The union and its political front are less concerned about rising power bills than they are about holding onto the state monopoly on electricity generation. Energy industry lawyer David Austin calculates that of the proposed 26.4-percent increase, about 3.5 per cent can be attributed to BC Hydro buying power from private sources, at prices competitive with new public power sources such as the Site C dam. Most of it comes from the overdue repairs to those old dams, other costly projects including the addition of turbines to two Columbia River dams, and deferred debt from previous political meddling. In August I reported that as many as 20
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
of BC Hydro’s existing private power purchase contracts will be cancelled or deferred. This was also seized upon to portray private power as the root of all evil, both financially and environmentally. In fact the attrition rate on these projects has always been about one out of three. This is what happens when the risks of expanding the provincial electrical grid are shared with private investors. These run-of-river and wind projects were promoted to maximize clean energy sources, as well as to spread the grid to remote areas. This was Gordon Campbell’s climate change strategy. Then came the gas boom. Clark seized upon liquefied natural gas exports as the key to future prosperity, and the government soon declared burning gas “clean” as long as it facilitates LNG production. Bennett now acknowledges that gasfired power plants are an option for the future. They are cheaper than hydro, small or large. Bennett’s two tasks are to supply industry with cheap power and get consumer rates under control. It looks as if the gas is being turned up, and Site C is moving to the back burner.

SPORTS BRIEFS Stampeders first team to snare a CFL playoff berth CALGARY - Head coach John Hufnagel hasn’t always been satisfied with the performance of his Calgary Stampeders in games this season, but he can’t argue with the results. Calgary tops both the league and the West Division at 9-2 and is the first team this season to secure a playoff berth. The Stampeders have worked for their wins with a constantly rotating cast of characters. All CFL teams deal with injuries in a season, but the theme of Calgary’s season so far is resiliency. The employment of three different starting quarterbacks has been well documented, but the Stampeders have also been forced to cover gaps on the offensive line, at receiver and in the defensive backfield when starters went down. It begs the question how much better Calgary would be if they weren’t routinely plugging holes in their lineup. Canadian Press
Tim Thomas agrees to tryout deal with Florida Panthers SUNRISE, Fla. - Tim Thomas wanted back in the NHL. The Florida Panthers wanted goaltending help. It might be a perfect match. The two-time Vezina Trophy winner agreed to a tryout deal with the Panthers on Monday, nearly a year and a half removed from his last game in the NHL. Thomas will be on the ice with Florida for practice Tuesday, and Panthers general manager Dale Tallon said his talks with the star of Boston’s run to the 2011 Stanley Cup convinced him that the move was right. “He really wants to play and he really wants to lead and he really wants to be the starter and he wants to win and he wants to win now,” Tallon said Monday while the Panthers faced Nashville in a preseason doubleheader. “I was very impressed with him. His attitude is terrific. I liked everything that he had to say and I liked his approach. We try to strive to get better every day and I think a good Tim Thomas makes us a better team.” Associated Press

Kootenay will carry a few extra players into the regular season for a longer look TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor
It’s crunch time in the WHL as prospects look to solidify their fulltime spots as the regular season looms. It’s no different for the Kootenay Ice, which has whittled down their roster and now carries 24 players—two goaltenders, eight defencemen and 14 forwards. Of that total, 18 are returning veterans from last year. Forwards Hudson Elynuik, Zach Zborosky and Matthew Alfaro, along with blueliners Troy Murray, Dylan Overdyk and Jordan Steenbergen are the remaining holdovers from camp hoping to stick around for their rookie WHL seasons. Throw in Russian D-man Rinat Valiev,
who hasn’t arrived yet due to visa issues complicated via a strike from the Canadian foreign service workers strike, and competition for fulltime spots gets a lot tighter. Alfaro, 17, is in his third Ice camp and is pushing for a role up front. He’s made an impact on the scoresheet, scoring twice in four preseason games. “This was my third WHL camp, so I was a little more experienced before coming in previous years,” said Alfaro, “and unlike last year, I had expectations on myself, put a little more pressure on myself to make this team, because I know I can.” Alfaro comes to Kootenay from AAA Midget in Calgary, where he played with the North-
MONTE STE WART Canadian Press
SURREY, B.C. - The B.C. Lions are preparing for the possibility that quarterback Travis Lulay won’t play in a key game against Saskatchewan because of a shoulder injury, but a decision on who would take the snaps in Lulay’s place is still up in the air. B.C. coach Mike Benevides said Monday the club will prepare offensive packages for backup signal-caller Thomas DeMarco and nominal No. 3 Buck Pierce. “I’m going to get
both of those guys, both Buck and Thomas, prepared right away,” said Benevides at the club’s practice facility. DeMarco, a second-year pro, has more knowledge of B.C.’s offensive system. But Pierce, a nine-year veteran in his second stint with the Lions after being acquired in a trade from Winnipeg last week, has more CFL experience. Benevides said he was not ready to make a declaration on who would start if Lulay can’t play. Lulay was injured on the weekend while running for a 14-

stars, tallying 31 points in 33 games. Though he’s chipped in offensively in the preseason, he still had to adjust to a few things. “Speed,” Alfaro said. “When I got the puck back in Midget AAA, I could take the time to make the play, now I’m in the dub, I need to know before I get the puck. “Less time and space. More physical, too.” Alfaro scored in Kootenay’s 8-6 loss to the Everett Silvertips in the
Tri-City tournament, and also lit the goal lamp in Coleman against the the Hitmen last Sunday. The defensive corps is a little younger this year, which will be led by overager Jagger Dirk. Returnees include Tanner Faith, Matthew Thomas, Landon Peel and Clint Filbrandt, who is coming into his sophomore year after being acquired in an off-season trade from the Americans. Jordan Steenbergen, at 17, is the elder of the remaining defensive prospects, as Dylan Overdyk and Troy Murray are both 16. Overdyk was Kootenay’s second-round pick in the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft, behind Troy Murray, who went 10th overall in the opening round.
The blueliner played AAA Bantam hockey with the St. Albert Sabres in the AMBHL last year, scoring five goals and posting seven assists in 32 games. This was his second time at training camp and his first real crack at making the team for his rookie season “It’s really intense competition, definitely some of the highest I’ve seen before, so it was nice to be a part of it,” said Overdyk, on his training camp experience. “…You’re mostly competing against guys who’ve played in this league before, so you definitely got to elevate your game. You got to change the way you play your game too, to an extent, but mostly, it’s remained the same.”

yard touchdown in a 36-14 victory over the Montreal Alouettes. Lulay was not at the practice facility while reporters were present. Benevides said the QB was getting an MRI exam and could be examined again Tuesday. The coach hopes to be clear on Lulay’s status by Wednesday, when the Lions return to practice.
“On Wednesday, I’ll have a clearer idea of what I want to do,” said Benevides. “We’re going to get both (DeMarco and Pierce) prepared, because it’s going to take both of them to win a football game.” The Lions (7-4) have a chance to gain a share of second place in the West Division when they visit the Roughriders (8-3) next Sunday in
Regina. Lulay told a Vancouver radio station Monday that his shoulder “stiffened up” overnight following the win over Montreal. He also told The Canadian Press on Sunday that he was feeling stiffness, but Benevides said a team doctor was encouraged by the range of motion that the QB’s shoulder displayed following the game.
Zach Johnson gets 1st win of the year at BMW Championship DOUG FERGUSON Associated Press
LAKE FOREST, Ill. Zach Johnson is having a September to remember, and there’s still one very big week to go. In one tournament, he made a 25-foot birdie putt on his final hole to earn the last spot on the Presidents Cup team. In the next one, Johnson made a bunch of big putts in the final round of the rain-delayed BMW Championship for a 6-under 65 for a two-shot victory
over Nick Watney. Next up? His win Monday at Conway Farms gave Johnson the No. 4 seed going into Tour Championship, giving him a clear shot at the FedEx Cup and its $10 million prize. “It’s hard to grasp the last two weeks of golf,” Johnson said. “It’s not like you have to win every week to win that FedEx Cup. You’ve just got to win at the right times, or play well at the right times. And I like the momentum I
have for next week.” Johnson’s 10th career win came at the expense of Jim Furyk, who endured another dose of final-round disappointment. Furyk, who had a one-shot lead, has failed to win the last six times he had at least a share of the lead going into the last round. He holed a 12-foot birdie putt at No. 10 to build a twoshot lead, but played the last eight holes in 2-over and wound up with a 71 to finish alone in third.

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: Last year, my husband and I attended my cousin’s annual summer barbeque. After we arrived, I looked for a place to tie up our dog in the backyard and noticed a few dead rats. They appeared to have been there for some time. I made mention of this to my cousin’s husband, but he made no attempt to remove them even though they were only a few steps away from the barbeque pit. I tied my dog several feet away from the dead rats. Later, when we returned home, our dog started scratching. This continued for several days until we noticed his fur was falling out. I believe he contracted mange from the dead rats. We’ve been invited to their “last nice weather barbecue,” but I am reluctant to go. My husband says we should go regardless, but I feel that if they don’t care to get rid of the dead rats in their backyard, they shouldn’t expect to entertain guests there. And also, the guest bathroom is never clean when we visit. What do you think? -- Disgusted in the Midwest Dear Disgusted: We think your cousin and her husband are not particularly meticulous about their cleaning and don’t care if you notice. And while your dog may have contracted mange from something in their yard, there’s no way to be certain now. You can contact the health department in your city and report the conditions (most municipalities like to know if there is an increased rat population). But that may not solve your problem, which is whether or not to attend another barbecue there. We say give them one last chance -- but don’t bring your dog. Dear Annie: My 55-year-old niece hasn’t held a job in more than five years. She is bipolar and on medication and is also dependent on painkillers. Her mother kept her husband’s ashes in a box for years, and after her mother died 13 years ago, my niece told me she “just couldn’t let him go.” This man is not her biological father. But he was a Korean War veteran and deserves to be interred with full military honors at the Great Lakes National Cemetery along with his wife’s remains. It was his wife’s wish to be buried with her husband. Even the husband’s surviving brother and sister have expressed shock and disbelief that his cremains are still in a closet. They want him to be given a proper burial. The military cemetery will provide a niche, a plaque and a service, all of which would cost my niece nothing. Yet, she won’t do it. Is this the behavior of a normal human being? Or is she being selfish and controlling? -- Speaking for Another Lost Veteran Dear Speaking: Well, if she is bipolar and on painkillers, she may not be entirely rational about this. We assume your niece inherited whatever belonged to her mother, including her stepfather’s ashes. And although he was not her biological father, she still may have been very attached to him. Instead of being angry and demanding, consider being kind and understanding. Sympathize with her desire to keep the ashes. Explain how she would be honoring her stepfather by giving him a military burial, and that her mother would wish to be with her husband. You may not think she deserves such consideration, but you are more likely to get the result you want if she doesn’t feel obligated to defend herself. Dear Annie: I laughed at the letter from “Wondering in Clinton Township,” whose sister gets all bent out of shape when she receives a letter addressed to “Aunt Frances” instead of “Mrs. Frances Smith.” Right now, I am holding a letter addressed to “Grandma Bobbie” and another addressed to “Aunt Grandma.” I really don’t care how it’s addressed, just as long as they write to me. -Fort Myers, Fla.

Margaret Gertrude McLuckie (Nee Oliver) July 20, 1931 September 14, 2013 Margaret passed away peacefully, on the morning of Saturday September 14 at the age of 82, at The Pines Retirement home in Kimberley. Margaret was born and raised in White Rock, B.C. She later met and married William (Bill) McLuckie who predeceased her in May 2007. They lived in Williams Lake, moved to Fort Steele in 1965 and then to Cranbrook in 1969. During that time she made numerous friends throughout the area of Cranbrook, Kimberley and Wycliffe. She leaves behind to mourn her: Cheryl McLuckie, Robert (Bob) McLuckie, Barbara Rinehart (Earle), Hugh McLuckie, Patricia Hoy ( Terry), Brian McLuckie (Shawn), 8 grandchildren: Tim Rinehart, Steven Rinehart, Jodi Bretzer (Chris), Jason Hoy (Zoe), Thomas Hoy, Robert McLuckie Jr (BJ), Connor McLuckie, Jordon McLuckie, and 3 great grandchildren Jaymes McKenzie (Tim), Kennedy and Ethan Sande (Zoe). She will be sadly missed by her family and friends who all hold fond memories of their times spent with her over the years that they knew her. No funeral service will be held as per her wishes.
With deep regret we announce the passing of Gregory Robert Keith on September 11, 2013 at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital with his wife and sister by his side, after a lengthy battle with cancer. Greg was born in Saskatoon on July 30,1948 and raised in Regina. He followed his father into the engineering profession with a technologist diploma from Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Technology followed by an Engineering degree from the University of Manitoba. He started his carer working for his father at Keith Consulting and continued on to become the President of a successor company, Keith Project Management. He was working with LVM Highway Technical Engineering Services. His professional specialty was in the field of highways and transportation on domestic as well as projects abroad. Although Greg was dedicated to his profession he also pursued his many diverse interests. Throughout his life with Mary they travelled extensively to destinations such as Australia, the Orient, Mexico, Europe and the USA. Along with golf and curling his other life long passion was the restoration of cars and motorcycles. He was the driving force behind the annual â€œMadd Maxx, a motorcycle trip that took a group of old and new friends down numerous secondary roads, and countless adventures throughout Western Canada and the USA for the past 10 years. While at home bird watching, gardening and landscaping his Kimberley backyard filled Greg with joy. Greg is survived by Mary, his wife of 37 years, his best buddy Louie his dog, his sister Vicki-Lynn (Bill) McMorris, Mother in law Mary Stephen, Sister in law Jean(Ken)Selinger, from Regina, his brother Murray (Denise), Port Moody BC, brother in law Jim Stephen Kamloops and numerous nieces and nephews. Gregâ€™s easy going laid back personality attracted may loyal life long friends who will miss him greatly.
Send condolences via http://www.markmemorial.com in Margaretâ€™s name.
Special thanks to the East Kootenay Regional Hospital for the tremendous care and compassion shown towards Greg and Mary during recent stays. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to the Oncology Dept of the East Kootenay Regional Hospital or a charity of choice.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association.

Some trouble with the jewelry Hello Wendy; I was wondering if you could help me solve a riddle about my mom’s jewelry. I am getting on in age and have a hard time walking around or I would come and see you. I have this ring of my mom’s — it’s quite nice and I have three grandchildren that are females. I don’t know which one I should give this ring to. Can you ask my mom which grandchild she would like to have her ring? Feeling Torn Dear Feeling Torn: Thank you for the names of your mom and your three female grandchildren. This has enabled us to answer your question.
When I contacted your mom she says she knows that you are quite confused about who to give the ring to. She also stated she has other jewelry that is just as fine. She feels it would be a good idea when you give the ring to your one grandchild; to give away some of the other jewelry at the same time, to the other two. She is pointing to her neck and I see a strand of pearls or stones of some kind and she is telling me they are authentic. She wants you to give the ring to your oldest grandchild. Your mom was quite close to her and she wants her to have the ring. There is also a bracelet with charms
on it that she would like you to give it to your youngest grandchild. Well, I guess the necklace goes to the middle grandchild. She is nodding and smiling at me that I have given you the correct information. Your mother sure has good taste or should I say your father was sure good in picking out jewelry for your mom. These three pieces of jewelry if you so choose to give to your grandchildren would be quite a nice gift from their great grandma. Oops, here comes your dad and he is waving to you. They were a happy couple and got along quite well. Hope this helps you. Wendy

Dear Forgetting and Forgiving: Yes, I remember you and we had a nice time talking to your husband and I think you understand now why he treated you the way he did. Really no excuses to treat you so miserably as he and we talked about. You were together in five past lives and they were not positive past lives as you have experienced in this lifetime.
