Master of the nightmare Alice Cooper talks about his upcoming Cranbrook show, the Hollywood Vampires, Jim Morrison, Satan, life as the dark outsider, the ‘70s, and the best band he’s ever had


MLA busy with Core Review

Bennett challenges fellow ministers to take ‘bold approach’ SALLY MACDONALD Townsman Staff


our and a half decades, 26 albums and a persona that completely and controversially changed the look of rock concerts have made Alice Cooper one of the most prominent rock acts in the world. And that rock icon is promising Cranbrook audiences the highest energy show they’ve seen in a while. Since the early 1970s, when his shows created controversy and scandal with their focus on horror, the macabre and elements designed to shock, an Alice Cooper concert has become one of the hottest tickets on the international touring circuit. Cooper spoke to the Daily Townsman from Arizona on a searing hot day there, and cold rainy day in Cranbrook. “It’s a ritual,” he said. “An Alice Cooper concert is going to be something that’s almost traditional now. They want the guillotine, they get the guillotine. They want Alice in a straitjacket — absolutely.” Alice Cooper is bringing his “Raise the Dead” tour to Western Financial Place in Cranbrook on November 13. And the Godfather of Shock Rock is enthusiastic about what he and his band are presenting. “The show is very hard rock,” Cooper said. “It’s in three sections. It starts out being really glam Alice, then it goes to nightmare Alice. We do a little section in the show called ‘Raise the Dead,’ where it’s really about all my dead drunk friends.”

Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett has been busy this summer working on the B.C. government’s Core Review. Bennett, who is the Minister Responsible for the Core Review, as well as the Minister of Energy and Mines, sent a letter to each government minister on Tuesday with instructions on the next step of the Core Review. “The focus at this stage of the process is that we want them to come in and talk to the committee about the ministry’s mandate and

A recent Union of B.C. Municipalities resolution calls on the provincial government to increase municipal election terms to four years, from three. The move is meant to bring the provincial and municipal elections inline. In Cranbrook, mayor and council took the opportunity to weigh in on

the subject. Mayor Wayne Stetski said he was conscious of the financial savings when he weighed the option. “I voted in favour as it reduces the cost – for every 12-year period there would be only three municipal elections instead of four,” Stetski said.

Theme Nights at

Cranbrook and District Arts Council celebrated International Day of Peace 2013 in style, with their project pinwheels for peace. Visitors to the gallery could drop in and make a pinwheel of their own design for free, during gallery opening hours on Saturday, Sept. 21. “I’d never heard of this day before and was looking for ways to get young families involved with free activities at the arts council, and this seemed like a great way to start,” CDAC administrator Helen Duckworth said. “I’d found the idea for the activity via the pinwheels for peace website, and thought it was a novel and fun way to make a statement about peace whilst getting people’s creative juices flowing.”

The CDAC saw lots of smiling faces getting crafty with their creations throughout the day, with everyone putting their own ‘spin’ on their pinwheel. Visitors were allowed to take their pinwheels away with them, but every participant donated their pinwheel to the CDAC peace pot, resulting in a beautiful pinwheel bouquet. Finished pinwheels were later taken for display at Idlewild Peace Park for the International Day of Peace celebrations (see related story, Page 30).

The bucks are in the mood; be cautious Submitted

Residents and visitors are advised to continue to exercise caution and common sense this fall, as the fall deer mating period begins. That is the message from the City of Cranbrook. In the weeks leading up to the rut (into November and December) bucks increase their displays of dominance and indirect threats. Dominant bucks typically circle rivals with deliberate steps; back arched, head low and tail flicking. Bucks can also display dominance by thrashing the bushes with their antlers. “We are into a transition period, where some does with fawns remain wary and potentially aggressive toward humans with dogs,” says Mayor Wayne Stetski. “Now we could also see an increase in aggressive activity from the local urban buck population. “Residents are reminded to please give deer plenty of space to move or leave the area. Do not walk closer to the deer; find another route.” Any acts of deer aggression where public safety is at risk should be reported. To report an incident to the Conservation Officer Service, please call 1-877-9527277. To report an incident to the City of Cranbrook, please call 250426-4211 or email

Bennett on core review

Local NEWS

Thursday, SEPTEMBER 26, 2013

Continued from page 1 “We will start to get a sense of whether they are living up to the expectations and goals in their mandate. We will also in some cases get a sense of whether they think the mandate is still relevant and is the most important thing for that ministry or Crown agency to be doing.” Bennett has been tasked with finding $50 million in savings within government through the Core Review, but he says the process is more about creating more efficient ministries and Crown agencies. “As important as finding the $50 million is – because I’m obligated to do that – it is of lesser importance than finding ways to do things smarter,” said Bennett. “It seems like everyone, not just the media but even the public, thinks this is all a dollars and cents process, and it isn’t. That’s not what Premier Clark intended this to be. Yes, I’m looking for ways for ministries and Crowns to spend less money,” he said. “(But) it’s not just a cost-cutting exercise. That’s actually of lesser importance than finding ways to do things smarter. “What we are doing here is we are saying, okay, stop. Everybody just stop for a moment and take a look at what you’re doing. “I think when we just take a pause and take a look at things, we are going to find lots of things to improve.” Still, he needs to find that $50 million in savings before the end of 2013. “So we are looking for some low-hanging fruit right now. I’m not going to go into any detail but we have our eye on a few things that will enable us to find those savings,” said Bennett. The Core Review will include targeted industry and stakeholder consultations. The committee’s recommendations will be made before the end of the 2013-2014 fiscal year, and the process will wrap up before the end of 2014.

City councillors ponder four-year terms Continued from page 1

“All other levels of government have fouryear terms, and it gives municipal officials more time to implement their election platforms and deliver on their promises.” Coun. Sharon Cross said that the union has been debating the question for years, defeating the four-year option each time. “The arguments for three-year terms versus four-year terms are equally compelling,” Cross said. “I support the four-year election term as it would save taxpayer money, and provide for a timeframe that reflects provincial and federal elections, as well as most other provinces.” But not everyone was as optimistic about the four-year option. Coun. Gerry Warner said he was surprised to see the motion pass so handily. “Terms of two years or less are too little and four years is too much,” Warner said. “I think three years is ideal because it gives a councillor enough time to learn the job and accomplish something while giving the voter a reasonably quick chance to vote

Diana J. Scott said that though the change is only a year, that year makes a big difference when you’re committing yourself. “On the face of it, four years would be better to accomplish your goals as a council,” Scott said. “However, I feel it may be a deterrent to people considering running. Four years is a huge commitment to make. A lot can happen in people’s personal lives in that time: circumstances can change, jobs, moves, in-

Gerry Warner Scott felt that the three-year system has worked thus far. “There are usually some veterans around the table, along with new folks, so that lends a consistency from council to council,” she said. Coun. Angus Davis noted that up until the late ‘80s, municipal elections were required every two years. “That I thought was

too short,” Davis said. “Then they went to three-year terms. I think that three years is just great. It gives the public a good amount of time to get a feeling for what their councillors are like. If they’re good then they can re-elect them. If

they’re not what they wanted them to be then they have three years to prove their worth or someone else will be elected.” Davis said that he felt, as a councillor, if he was thinking four years, he’d be thinking more about

himself than the community. “Three years is a good sensible term of office,” he said. Councillors Denise Pallesen and Bob Whetham were not available for comment as of press time.

said. “When people get behind it, moms feel supported and encouraged to do it.” Many mothers don’t breastfeed for as long as they would like to because they may experience breastfeeding difficulties, negative attitudes, lack of support or information. Smith said active support is needed from families, friends, health care providers, and communities for mothers to sustain breastfeeding to one year and beyond. Smith said most families in Cranbrook, like in the rest of Canada, choose to breastfeed. “Unfortunately by six months, most mothers have stopped breastfeeding.” She said women and

Benefits for the family include the fact that the cost of breastfeeding per month is free, whereas the monthly cost of formula can be hundreds of dollars.

pregnant moms and promote breastfeeding to the general public. The Breastfeeding Challenge is a worldwide event that occurs in the fall when Canada celebrates World Breastfeeding Week. The goal is to count every child breastfeeding at 11 a.m. local time at every site registered. The Challenge is a public event, and as a result has encouraged community discussion about issues related to breastfeeding. It has provided a focus for health promotion, the importance of breastfeeding, and the key role breastfeeding plays in the health of a community. This will take place on October 5 at the farmers’ market at 10:45 a.m. with official latch on at 11 a.m. “Last year we had 16 moms and 17 babies at the challenge,” Bybee said. “We are really hoping for at least double that this year. We are planning for 50.” Other events set for Saturday include door prizes, goodie bags for breastfeeding moms and an educational baby-wearing fashion show, “plus a few more surprises,” Bybee said. Local sponsors include Interior Health, Over The Rainbow Family Services,  Bumble Tree, Stephanie Moore Photography, Petra Naturally and Scentsy (Deanna Byman). Organizers have also sent out a breastfeeding logo for local businesses to place in their window, informing the public that that business is a breastfeeding friendly place.

Alice planning on rocking Cranbrook Continued from page 1 Cooper’s “Dead Drunk Friends” — his drinking buddies from yesteryear — just happen to be among the most influential names in rock. “They’re four guys that I used to drink with who are all gone now — John Lennon , Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison (lead singer of the Doors) and Keith Moon (drummer for the Who). “We had a drinking club called the Hollywood Vampires. We drank every night at a place called the Rainbow, and it was literally last man standing kind of thing. “But now, I watched all these guys go. I’ve never done a covers album before. So I said to my producer, ‘Why don’t we do a covers album but let’s direct it towards the Hollywood Vampires?’” The proposed covers album has morphed into a four-song tribute to his late friends — a song from each of Hendrix, the Beatles, the Doors and the Who. “It really makes it fun that not just is it about them, but the fact that I actually really used to drink with these guys,” Cooper said. “They were my big brothers. I was their little brother.” Cooper spoke at some length about Jim Morrison. Morrison, now considered an important poet, was a legendary stage performer who revolutionized the interaction between audience and artist through his tumultuous career with The Doors. He died at age 27, of a heart attack likely caused by extreme alcohol abuse. “The funny thing was that you couldn’t talk him out of it,” Cooper said. “All he ever talked about, or sang about, was the other side. ‘This is the End,’ ‘Break on Through’ (famous Doors’ songs) … When you think about it, he was so obsessed with death in one way or another. “But he was great on stage, a great poet. He was fun to be with. But he was always predicting his own death. And

Alice Cooper, pictured performing with band member Orianthi. when his death came about, nobody was surprised. None of us sat back and said, ‘What a shock.’ We were surprised that he got to 27 years old. “We (the Alice Cooper band) had the privilege of opening for The Doors,” Cooper continued. “It wasn’t one of those deals where we would do our show and get on the bus and go. We would do our show and then stand on the stage and watch every night. Because every night was a different show. You never knew what Jim was going to do. He never did any song the same way twice.” Cooper had his own struggles with alcholism, but has been clean and sober for decades. But it seems he looks back at his famous drinking club with nostalgia. “It was great, and we did have a lot of fun,” he said. “And it was mindless fun. When you’re in your 20s, and you’re living on beer, basically … I look back and say those were really the good old days.” Death, the macabre and the shadow side of humanity have always been touchstone themes of Cooper’s

songwriting, albums and stage performance. His most recent album — his 26th (“Welcome 2 My Nightmare,” a sort of sequel to his 1975 album of that name) and his ongoing “Raise the Dead” tour both confront death, look it in the face, comment on its before and afters. “I think Alice has always been interested in that — things like life and death, God and the devil, good and evil, sinners, saints,” Cooper said. “There’s a very Christian sort of attitude about it. “I grew up in a Christian home,” he said. “I was what you could call the prodigal son. My dad was a pastor, my grandfather was a pastor. I grew up in Christianity, went as far away as I could, and then came back. So I do write about the devil. I write about Satan, I write about God. But I write about Satan in much more of a warning. “It’s one of those things where I’m saying, ‘Be careful who you invite in. Be careful of what doors you open.’ Because the devil’s best trick is to make you think he doesn’t exist. “I write a lot of songs that say not only does he exist, but he is very ac-

tive in trying to get ahold of you.”

“Alice was never going to be about Crosby, Stills and Nash or Jackson Browne. I was always the one who collected those kids who didn’t fit in. There were tons of those kids out there — the kids that didn’t fit in related with Alice. So I was sort of the dark outsider. “ Alice Cooper’s persona over the four decades has served as a dark mirror of humanity, in which we see the things we avoid thinking that we are. “There’s a catharsis there too,” he said. “I always realized one thing about the character of Alice was that is he is not the mainstream, he is the lunatic fringe. Alice was never going to be about Crosby, Stills and Nash, or Jackson Browne. I was always the one who collected those kids who didn’t fit

in. There were tons of those kids out there — the kids that didn’t fit in related with Alice. So I was sort of the dark outsider. “But I think what happened was that people finally started picking up on the sense of humour. You’re going to be the villain and the dark outsider, have fun with it. Don’t be this character that’s just doom and gloom. I’ve always thought the villain was the character that had the greatest lines, and probably had the best sense of humour. So people started finding the sense of humour in Alice Cooper, and it relieved them a little bit, that you could be an outsider and still be funny. The original Alice Cooper band played for years before breaking into the international mainstream in the early 1970s, with a string of hits like “I’m 18,” “School’s Out,” “Billion Dollar Babies,” and “No More Mr. Nice Guy.” When he began his solo career (taking the Alice Cooper name with him), he pioneered the musical recurring nightmare which almost single-handedly created a new musical genre, and from which he contin-


ues to draw inspiration. He agrees with the suggestion that the early 1970s have never been given enough credit as a period of great musical creativity, compared with, say, the late 1960s. “Think of all the ‘70s bands that took rock and roll and stretched it and turned it into an artform,” he said. “I love the ‘60s stuff. But if you really think of the ‘60s, it was really three-minute happy songs. And then you go to the ‘70s and all of a sudden here comes all these bands and stretched it into something new. So I think the ‘70s may have been the most creative time in rock and roll, when you think of Bowie, when you think of Roxy Music, T-Rex, Frank Zappa and the Mothers. And we (the Alice Cooper Band) contributed in our way.” Cooper’s view of the evolution of rock music since that period is less kind. “Rock music is anemic right now,” he said. “How many rock bands are there, actually? There’s the Foo Fighters, there’s Jack White, there’s Green Day — bands like Chicken Foot. But the majority of rock bands today are just anemic. They want to be more folk, or they

want to be more introspective — no image, let’s just get out there and write these songs that are sensitive. “Whereas rock music is Guns N Roses, Aerosmith — really arrogant, snotty rock and roll. I think we need more of that. I really like Billy Talent (a Canadian melodic punk rock band from Ontario). I’ve always thought Billy Talent was one of the really unsung rock and roll bands.” Alice Cooper’s positive enthusiasm returns with mention of the band he’s touring with, and bringing to Cranbrook. “Best band I’ve ever worked with,” he said. “Ryan Roxie (guitar) has worked with me for quite a long time. He’s just a pure rock and roll guitar player showman. Chuck Garric on bass and me. Glen Sobel is one of the best drummers of all time. This guy is Mister Showbiz. He does things with the drums that make people go, ‘What are you doing?’ Tommy Hendrickson (guitar) was co-producer with Bob Ezrin on the last album. “And then I got Orianthi. Orianthi is our 27-year-old female Australian guitar player, and she can play Hendrix like Hendrix. She is a monster guitar player. She looks like a model and she plays like Jimi Hendrix. “You put that band together and there’s just no stopping them. Every night they’re 100 per cent.” Cooper’s wife, Sheryl Goddard, is also in the show. “She was the original ballerina and played about nine different parts in the ‘Welcome to My Nightmare’ show,” Cooper said. “Then my daughter took over, and now Sheryl is back in the show as the demented ‘Day of the Dead’ nurse, and she just kills it. Every night she puts me in the straitjacket — the audience loves it. “It’s going to be the highest energy show you see all year.”

Alice Cooper plays Western Financial Place in Cranbrook, Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2013. Tickets are on sale now.

The Ministry says it’s likely a ‘localized event’. But why? Are the grizzlies always there and we just don’t see them? One theory I have heard is that elk are moving into the reclaimed Sullivan Mine lands and when elk arrive, grizzlies follow. Sounds as good as any other theory. I am at a loss to explain the number of grizzly sightings in recent weeks, so I turn to you, readers. Can you remember another time when grizzly sightings in town were so common? Was there another year like this in the past? Do you think the grizzly population is increasing around Kimberley? Send us your thoughts. Send us your stories of bear encounters.

Opening night will have a gala reception catered by The Green Door, and audience members can mingle with the cast and crew. Our Town is running Nov. 14-17, 2013 at Key City Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for seniors and students, available at the Key City Theatre or call 250-426-7006.

Letters to the Editor Meals on Wheels

The “Meals on Wheels” program has been in place to deliver nutritious and hot supper meals to our elderly citizens who need help because of disability or illness. The seniors pay $6.25 per meal and get meals three times per week. There are two routes in Cranbrook and we usually have between 12 to 18 meals to deliver. I have been a volunteer driver for over six years, while most other drivers have served for between 10 and 20 years. Sometimes I am the only person these people see that day. In the two or three minutes I have with them, I brighten their day and they brighten mine. On Friday, Sept. 21, I had to give my six clients, all of whom I consider friends, news that the program was transitioning to a new program called “Dinners at Home” effective Oct. 15. “Dinners at Home” will provide a choice of 21 frozen dinners that have to be preordered in case lots of eight or 16 meals. I checked and no one’s freezer is large enough to store eight meals if there is anything else in the freezer. Of the six people who I presently deliver to, three live in their own homes and three live in apartments. Four are blind and would not be able to read the 18-page document they received telling them of the changeover to “Dinners at Home”. Another has memory loss from a brain injury. All except one are over 80 years old. None of them have a vehicle to get their dinners from the Green Home. If they do remember to take the meal out to defrost it they still have to be able to set the oven temperature and manipulate the hot oven racks to get their supper out. I had a friend years ago whose mother had to be admitted to a seniors facility due to severely

burning herself in the oven or with a kettle. Our local co-ordinator for Cranbrook and Kimberley was not asked for any input into this decision and found out about it a day before the clients and drivers. A month ago the styrofoam containers which are used to keep the entrees and soup hot and the salad and juice cold for the delivery from the hospital to the clients’ homes were replaced with new containers – another sign that the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing! Earlier this year the government was touting a program to keep seniors in their own homes longer. I am appalled at Interior Health, East Kootenay Regional Hospital Food Services Department, and the Dr. F. W. Green Home for their collective lack of vision in making this cost saving decision. The only money saved in Cranbrook will be $60 per week ($10 per trip for gas and wear and tear multiplied by six volunteers). I would gladly give up my stipend but I truly think a better decision would be to fire the bureaucrat(s) who came up with this ridiculous plan. Now that would result in a substantial saving! Pat Wheeler Cranbrook


The taxpayers of Cranbrook wonder how city management can spend $250,000 on paving the road to the spray irrigation pumphouse when we have city streets not being repaired and maintained. The road to the pumphouse was a good gravel road, easy to grade, and has served its purpose for over 30 years. The amount of traffic per day is minimal.

We have potholes galore and sunken valve boxes that leave the driving public vulnerable to expensive mechanical repairs. I know we have a huge infrastructure problem which cannot be easily solved because of the great expense, but we have to start somewhere. $250,000, plus looking at cost savings in every department, would go a long way towards reasonable maintenance — or at least filling potholes.

KCT Changes

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome Nick Johansson to Key City Theatre. He joined KCT at the beginning of September, as our new marketing coordinator. On another note, Leslie Cupidio, our administrator/office manager for the past 15 years, has decided it is time to leave Key City Theatre. Throughout the years, she has worked with several managing directors, technicians and staff, as well as all the user groups/artists/performers who have graced our stage. Her knowledge about our member/subscribers is truly amazing and it will be hard to fill her shoes in that department. We thank you for all your hard work and dedication throughout the years. The board of directors of Key City Theatre Society and theatre staff wish you well in this next chapter of your life.

Yankees eliminated from MLB playoffs RONALD BLUM Associated Press


The Kootenay Ice acquired Ryan Chynoweth in a trade with the Tri-City Americans.

Ice acquire younger Chynoweth in trade TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Jeff Chynoweth knew a few eyebrows would be raised when he pulled the trigger to acquire his son, Ryan Chynoweth, from the Tri-City Americans on Wednesday. However, the Kootenay Ice GM offered a simple reason for the deal. “If I didn’t think he could help our hockey club, I wouldn’t have made the trade,” Chynoweth said. In exchange for

Chynoweth, Kootenay sent a fifth-round draft pick in the 2014 or 2015 WHL Bantam Draft to the Americans. For his part, the trade came as a bit of a shock to the younger Chynoweth. “It’s a different feeling, for sure,” said Ryan Chynoweth. “I didn’t see it coming, but I’m excited to come back and I’m excited to play, I think it’s going to be fun to play for the team I grew up watching.”

NEW YORK - The end came quietly for this year’s New York Yankees. No celebrations. No titles. No October baseball. Curtis Granderson was batting in the eighth inning Wednesday night when the Cleveland Indians completed a 7-2 win over the Chicago White Sox. And with that, the Yankees were mathematically eliminated from post-season contention in the middle of the season’s final week, even before they finished an 8-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. New York failed to make the post-season for the first time since 2008 and for only the second time in 19 years. Mariano Rivera will be in the bullpen Thursday night for his final game at Yankee Stadium he’ll be there in a regular season game with nothing at stake for New York, rather than on the post-season stage where he solidified his credentials as the greatest relief pitcher ever. “I’ll be there for the fans. They deserve it,” the 43-year-old said. “But it don’t mean anything. I’m not used to pitching for something

that doesn’t mean anything. I wanted to pitch for something that means something.” Evan Longoria homered twice as the Rays won their sixth straight and lowered their magic number over Texas to three for clinching an AL wild-card berth. Slowed by age and hobbled by injury, the Yankees (82-76) failed to claim one of the 10 playoffs berths despite baseball’s highest opening-day payroll at $230 million. “It’s extremely disappointing, and back to the drawing board,” manager Joe Girardi said. “It hurts.” Since starting the latest run of success in 1995, New York had missed the playoffs only in 2008 - when the team bid goodbye to old Yankee Stadium. This time, the Yankees are saying so long to Rivera and Andy Pettitte, who are retiring when the season ends Sunday. New York trailed by just one game for the second wild-card berth earlier this month before a series opener at Boston on Friday the 13th. But the Yankees have lost eight of 11, including three in a row. Before a quiet crowd of

37,260, they were eliminated from contention for a playoff berth on their own field for the first time since 1991. “It’s a really sad feeling,” said Robinson Cano, the All-Star second baseman who figures to secure a nine-figure contract this off-season. “The fun part of this game is playoffs. I’m

really sad right now, and it’s going to stick in my head, in my mind, until next season.” Phil Hughes (4-14) allowed three runs and seven hits in two innings-plus, walking slowly to the dugout and looking up to the stands when he was removed from what likely was his final start with the Yan-

kees. “Just a tough way to end things here - not making the post-season,” Hughes said. A key part of the Yankees’ 2009 title team as a reliever, Hughes went 0-7 with a 6.09 ERA in 13 starts since beating Minnesota on July 2. He is eligible for free agency after the World Series.

Toronto’s offence splutters in 9-5 loss to Orioles DAVID GINSBURG Associated Press

BALTIMORE - The Toronto Blue Jays got 15 hits, four apiece by Munenori Kawasaki and Josh Thole, and never went down in order. And still the Blue Jays lost 9-5 to Baltimore on Wednesday night, mainly because they wasted a week’s full of scoring chances. Ryan Flaherty hit a pair of two home runs and Jonathan Schoop and Steve Pearce contributed solo shots for the Orioles, who ended a six-game skid and secured a winning season for the second straight year. “They stung the ball, hit the ball well,” Toronto’s Brett Lawrie said. “They put runners on, they hit a couple of home runs. That’s about it.” Although Kawasaki had a career high in hits and Thole tied his career high-water mark, the Blue Jays stranded 14 and went 4 for 22 with

runners in scoring position. “We kept getting guys on base. We just couldn’t get them in enough,” manager John Gibbons said. “You run into those. That’s where we could have used that home run. They got a couple of homers. We could have used one. Might have been a different story.” Esmil Rogers (5-9) yielded six runs and eight hits - including two homers - in 4 1-3 innings for Toronto. “You make a couple of mistakes, you pay at this level,” Rogers said. “It doesn’t matter who you are. It doesn’t matter if you’re a baby. If you got a mistake, you’re going to pay.” The Orioles were eliminated from the wild-card hunt one night earlier, so manager Buck Showalter rested Adam Jones, Brian Roberts and Matt Wieters and moved Chris Davis from first base to designated hitter.

Men’s Avs get back to work after weekend tourney TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Kimberley Curling Club


Annual General Meeting will take place on Thursday, October 3rd Curling Club – upstairs lounge at 7:00 p.m. sharp.

Despite a win and three losses, head coach Steve Kamps was able to get a good look at his volleyball team last weekend at an exhibition tournament in Red Deer. The College of the Rockies men’s Avalanche team clashed on the court in the Challenge Cup, a event that pitted the Pacwest (B.C.) and ACAC (Al-

berta Colleges Athletic Conference) against each other. It was a great way to throw his players into the fire and try a few new things before the regular season starts, said Kamps. “We were only oneand-three, but it’s exhibition and we’re looking at different things and the results don’t really matter, we just wanted to see where we were at as a team and

individuals,” said Kamps. The first match was against their hosts, the Red Deer Kings, the silver medalists at last year’s nationals, with a lineup that featured five returnees from that season. The Avs lost in straight sets at 25-17, 25-15, and 25-13. However, the team rebounded the next match, beating the SAIT Trojans in four sets, which helped restore

some confidence for the Avs, Kamps added. Set scores were 25-20, 25-21, 21-25, 25-20. Following that match, the Avs took on the Medicine Hat College Rattlers and fell in straight sets (25-16, 2518, 25-23) after utilizing a different lineup and trying some different things on the court. The final match was a marathon two-and-ahalf hours on the court against the Briercrest Clippers, which was decided when the Avs dropped the tie-breaking fifth set. Briercrest is hosting nationals this year, and the squad features a lot of fourth and fifth year athletes, which was a good test for his Avs, said Kamps. “We were composed, we had leads and Briercrest really

crept back there,” Kamps said. “They’re a patient team, an experienced team, but we didn’t panic. We closed out every set that we did have a lead in, we made some adjustments as we went throughout the match—it could’ve gone either way in the fifth set.” Briercrest took the first set at 25-21, but then the Avs came back and took the next two at 23-25 and 22-25. Briercrest won the fourth set 25-23 to set up the tiebreak, which they won at 15-10. The Avs are back practicing in their home gym and hope to get a few more exhibition games under their belt with some Alberta squads before the Pacwest season starts in October.

Chynoweth adds more depth with additional forward Continued from page 8

The women’s Avalanche team hit the court for some practice this week in advance of their preseason debut at the Rumble in the Rockies touranment this weekend at the College of the Rockies gym.

Women’s Avs ready to rumble Volleyball squad hosting Rumble in the Rockies tournament starting Thursday Tre vor Cr awley Sports Editor

If you hear a loud commotion from the College of the Rockies over the next few days, it’s probably because an Avalanche has rolled into the gym. The women’s volleyball team is hosting the annual Rumble in the Rockies preseason tournament, attracting 5 college teams from Alberta and a CIS squad from the University of Calgary. The ladies, which feature nine-first year athletes on the roster, have been busy in practice, and now its time to get a feel for some real competition. “This weekend, it’s all about putting girls in the right spots, trying them in different positions, everybody’s going to play,” said women’s head coach Agata Bendkowska. “We have lots of games so what we are really looking for, as a coaching staff, is to play them all.

“[There’s] lots of learning for us coaches, but we also want to be competitive. So even though everybody’s going to play, we also want to be very competitive.” Allison Pepper, a returnee with the team who plays on the left side, said practices are usually broken up with different parts of the team working on offence and defence, and now it’s time to put that work to the test. “Everything in practice we split up defence and we’re doing different things on and off, and we haven’t really had a chance to put everything together,” Pepper said, “so this weekend will be great to see how everyone moves together, figure out who works best with who in an actual game situation. “…But everyone’s working really well together. We got lots of girls with lots of talent and I think we’re com-

ing together more as a team now. Training camp was good week of getting to know each other, seeing how everyone can play together, that kind of thing.” Bendkowska and her assistants are excited to see what the girls can do on the court, and who steps up to earn starting spots once the Pacwest season starts. “The team looks really good,” said Bendkowska. “Definitely a new look, and it looks

like the team has good potential. “…They work really hard. Everybody’s on the same level right now, so everyone is working hard because we need to pick out our six best players to compete in the league.” The tournament will be based at the College of the Rockies gym, however, the Mount Baker Secondary School gym will also host some games on Friday.

Coyotes edge Flames with 3-2 OT win C anadian Press

CALGARY - Zbynek Michalek scored 3:53 into overtime Wednesday night to give the Phoenix Coyotes to a 3-2 pre-season victory over the Calgary Flames. The goal came on a slapshot from the blue-line with Reto Berra screened by a group of players in front. Oliver Ekman-Larsson and

Shane Doan also scored for Phoenix (3-2-1). The Coyotes finish their pre-season Friday night with a home game against the San Jose Sharks. Mike Smith had 29 saves to get the victory. Lance Bouma with his fourth goal of the pre-season and Corban Knight scored for Calgary (4-2-1). The Flames have a full week off

before opening the regular season in Washington on Oct. 3. Calgary trailed 2-0 until halfway through the third period when the Flames finally solved Smith, tying the game with goals less than two minutes apart from Bouma and Knight. Notes: Not dressed for Calgary were Jiri Hudler (lower body) and Mike Cammalleri (hand), who are both nursing minor injuries.

Ryan Chynoweth, 18, spent the last two seasons in the U.S. Division of the WHL, starting with his rookie season with the Everett Silvertips before moving to the Tri-City Americans for his sophomore year via a trade deal. In 107 career WHL games, Chynoweth has totalled three goals and 10 assists. Jeff Chynoweth had conversations with Americans general manager Bob Tory regarding a few players before a deal with Ryan emerged. “Ryan will complement our existing age group of 1995-born players,” the Kootenay GM said. “He adds versatility playing either wing or centre, and is one of only three left shot forwards on our team.” Tory has connections with the Kootenay Ice, serving as GM many years ago when

the franchise relocated to Cranbrook from Edmonton in 1998. “With an abundance of forwards, we felt that a situation for Ryan in Kootenay was best for his development as a player,” Tory said in a press release. “We thank Ryan for his commitment, dedication, and work ethic to our team and we wish him all the best as he gets to play in his hometown.” Ryan Chynoweth said he is looking forward to meeting his new teammates and getting down to work. “I’m a hard working two-way forward, I can

play in the offensive and defensive zones,” he said. “I can play all three forward positions and pretty much do whatever I can to help the team win.” The Silvertips selected Chynoweth 24th overall in the second round of the 2010 WHL Bantam Draft.

Broncos QB Peyton Manning has only improved with age Associated Press

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - Peyton Manning is only getting better with age. Those surgical scars on his neck are starting to fade like all those fears that he might never be the same quarterback or even play again - after his right arm shrank from a damaged nerve

in his biceps two years ago. After attacking his rehab as doggedly as he assails defences, Denver’s 37-year-old quarterback is making it hard to fathom and easy to forget that not so long ago he was missing an entire season and getting fired in Indianapo-


The four-time MVP is off to the best start of his storied 16-year career. Driven by last year’s playoff pratfall, Manning is putting up historic numbers while directing an imaginative offence that’s still working through some growing pains.

Sports Crawford, Howard among players on Olympic bubble L arry L age Associated Press

DETROIT - When the NHL season begins, a lot of players will begin tryouts of sorts for their Olympic teams. Sidney Crosby, of course, is a lock to play for the defending cham-

pion Canadians, assuming he stays healthy while playing for the Pittsburgh Penguins. Patrick Kane, likewise, has a secure spot after helping the U.S. win silver in 2010 - if he isn’t injured in a Chicago Blackhawks uniform.

But for some players in the league such as Corey Crawford and Jimmy Howard, they won’t be only playing for the Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings early in the season. The goalies are also vying for the honour of being be-

tween the pipes at the Sochi Games in less than five months. Crawford insisted earning a spot on Canada’s team is not on his mind. “That only puts more pressure on myself,” he said after a preseason

VICTORIA - Mike Aviani had four goals, including two on the power play and another one shorthanded, to lead the Spokane Chiefs to a 6-1 win over the Victoria Royals in Western Hockey League action on Wednesday. Mitch Holmberg added a goal and three assists. Connor Chartier also scored for the Chiefs (30-0). Luke Harrison spoiled Garrett Hughson’s shutout bid with a power-play goal at 13:17 of the third period. The Spokane goaltender finished with 28 saves, including a Brandon Fushimi penalty shot in the second period that would have tied the game 1-1.

game in Detroit. “I just want to worry about what I have to do for our team. To spend any extra time thinking about the Olympic team would be a waste of a time.” Crawford was one of five goaltenders invited to Hockey Canada’s camp last month. He was joined by Vancouver’s Roberto Luongo, Montreal’s Carey Price, Phoenix’s Mike Smith and Washington’s Braden Holtby. Three of them will suit up for the Canadians. “It’s going to be a huge three months for everybody that’s in consideration because that’s when a lot of guys will make the team - or not,” said Red Wings coach Mike Babcock, who will be back on Canada’s bench after leading the team to gold at the Vancouver Games. Howard plans to focus on helping the Red Wings win, hoping that helps him play for the U.S. when the NHL takes a break in February.

“In the back of my mind, I’ll know that I’ll also be auditioning for this team,” Howard said last month in Arlington, Va., at the U.S. hockey camp. “It’ll make the stakes higher for every single game, and I like that.” Howard acknowledged he will keep tabs on his competition - Los Angeles’ Jonathan Quick, Buffalo’s Ryan Miller, Ottawa’s Craig Anderson and New Jersey’s Cory Schneider knowing they’re vying for one of three spots. “Everybody will sort of be watching it,” Howard said. “But I’m not going to read into it too much. You just have to worry about your own game, take care of your business and make it difficult on the staff picking the team.” Each country in the tournament will have some tough choices to make when finalizing their 25-man teams, but the picks and snubs will be closely watched in the Canada and might create a bit of a buzz in

the U.S. before the Dec. 31 deadline to submit rosters. Steve Yzerman returns as the executive director of Hockey Canada and his management group includes fellow NHL executives Ken Holland, Doug Armstrong and Kevin Lowe. While their watching their teams in the league, the executives will be keeping an eye on players from their countries, conducting conference calls and filing reports. Holland, GM of the Red Wings, also plans to scout some games in person that are not on his team’s schedule. “A lot of players from the 2010 team will be on our radar, but there will be some changes because Canada has a lot of good young players who have developed a lot over the last four years,” Holland said. “When we are playing an opponent, I know who I’ll be evaluating on the other team for Team Canada consideration.”

Oil leak after CN train derails in Sask. C ANADIAN PRESS

LANDIS, Sask. — Hazardous material crews were cleaning up oil spilled from a Canadian National train car that derailed close to a small community in western Saskatchewan early Wednesday. RCMP said 17 rail cars — some carrying flammable petroleum, ethanol and chemicals — came off the tracks after 4 a.m. within 500 to 700 metres of the village of Landis, west of Saskatoon. “The spill involved a petroleum product that is not considered highly explosive,’’ Sgt. Grant Rusk said. “Because of the flammable nature of some of the other rail-car contents, and the proximity to Landis and the school, the decision was made to close the Landis School for the day while the contents of the damaged cars were unloaded.’’ No one was injured. Warren Chandler, a spokesman for CN, said it was not clear how much oil spilled, but that the oil was concentrated along the right of way of its the transcontinental rail line. Chandler said some of the cars were on their sides and CN crews were working to clean up the area. “One of the derailed cars is leaking lube oil,’’

he said from Edmonton. “CN crews immediately began a process using vacuum trucks to contain and reclaim the leaking product.’’ The Saskatchewan government said one of the other derailed cars contains ethanol and was on its side, but was not leaking. Premier Brad Wall said most goods shipped by train move safely across Canada and railways are needed. But he said the spill is another chance to talk about the benefit of pipelines. “There is a debate though now that’s precipitated by Keystone and by (the proposed Northern) Gateway and maybe by the Energy East pipeline, about what is the safest way to move certain products,’’ Wall said in Regina. “We think it’s an allof-the-above proposition. We are going to be railing more oil out of this province, that’s just the fact of the matter. We’re doing it now and frankly doing it efficiently and safely for the most part, again from a statistical standpoint. “But we need pipelines. We need them and we need to be unequivocal that pipelines are still certainly the best way.’’ RCMP said the cars that went off of the

8-month sentence for man in Stanley Cup riot C ANADIAN PRESS

VANCOUVER — A 29-year-old Vancouver man has been sentenced to eight months in jail for his role in the 2011 Stanley Cup riot. In passing sentence Tuesday, a B.C. Provincial Court judge called Vasilios Makris’ involvement in the riot “the most serious of any case heard so far.’’ Justice William Kitchen added that it was “difficult to imagine how any rioter could have been more involved in the mayhem’’ that followed the Canucks’ Game 7 loss to Boston in the final. Kitchen said Makris, who was charged with assault and taking part

in a riot, was actively “cheerleading’’ others during the riot, taunted police, broke into a store and was involved in three vehicle fires. Makris had said he believes he drank well over a dozen beer and 14 ounces of vodka on the night of the riot. But Kitchen writes that “considerable video footage’’ shows Makris walking and running and not displaying the “usual signs of impairment’’ such as stumbling. Over the last two years, more than 100 people have received sentences ranging from discharges to more than a year in jail in connection with the riot.

tracks were in the middle of the 560-metre-long freight train and no other vehicle was involved in the derailment. Fire crews from nearby communities put out a grass fire in a ditch caused by the derailment, but police said none of the rail cars caught fire. The Transportation Safety Board of Canada said it is sending an investigator to the site.

The TSB is an independent agency that investigates marine, pipeline, railway and aviation transportation occurrences. It looks at ways to prevent similar incidents, but does not assign blame. Rogers Communications said the derailment severed cables which temporarily cut wireless services Wednesday morning for many of its customers in Western Canada.

The connection between forest fires and climate change Roughly 35 forest fires raged in the state of Colorado in June of 2012, obliterating homes and thousands of acres of land in the process. While these devastating fires were blazing, much of the central United States was under record-breaking heat, with some temperatures consistently reaching the triple digits.

while local temperatures fluctuate naturally, over the past 50 years the average global temperature has increased at the fastest rate in recorded history. And experts think the trend is accelerating. The 10 hottest years on record have all occurred since 1990.

The National Climate Data Center reported that 41 heat records were broken at the time, most in Kansas, Nebraska and Colorado. Such high temperatures are typical in these areas. Many scientists have questioned if the forest fires and the heat waves tend to go hand in hand.

Scientists say that hot temperatures in Colorado are one factor that may have contributed to the forest fires. However, low levels of precipitation throughout the year and the lack of very cold nights throughout the winter may have contributed to a drying out of the forests. In essence, the forests were like stacks of kindling just waiting to go up in flames.

According to the “Heat Waves and Climate Change” report from Climate Communication, a nonprofit science and outreach project funded by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and the ClimateWorks Foundation, as of the June forest fires, there had been nearly 10 times as many hightemperature records as low-temperature records through the midway point of 2012. In the last 10 years, hightemperature records have outnumbered low-temperature records by a two-to-one margin. This has led many people to firmly believe that the climate is growing warmer.

Dr. Steven Running, a University of Montana forest ecologist, predicts that extreme events like immense forest fires will only become more prevalent and accelerate every year as warming trends continue.

The prospects of global climate change have prompted the assumptions of many different ecological changes. Ecologists and scientists have said that a mere two degree change in temperature can have profound effects. Some of those effects include: •

Intense warming over land, exacerbated over the Arctic. Retreating sea ice in this area reflects less light and therefore results in less cooling.

Ice caps and glaciers melt, causing an overall rise in sea levels.

Rising sea levels force many coastal areas, and those already below sea level, to be covered in water.

Although day-to-day weather may not seem to change much, when extreme weather events do occur, they will be much more intense.

Long dry spells combined with earlier snowmelt will increase the risk of wildfires, according to Kevin Trenberth, senior scientist and head of the climate analysis division of Colorado’s National Center for Atmospheric Research.

Devastation of forests may be another casualty of global climate change.

A study published in 2007 in the journal Climate Dynamics predicted wetter winters for the northeastern United States -- with 10 to 15 percent more precipitation -- and hotter summers. Residents of the Northeast witnessed this firsthand when the 2010-2011 blizzards essentially shut down major cities like New York and Boston. Many more people have taken notice of weather abnormalities that have occurred in the last several years. Fiercer hurricanes and other storms around the world and alterations of normal seasonal patterns have raised questions. The Natural Resources Defense Council offers that

ensure elk are managed sustainably and in a manner that meets the interests of all involved. This year’s hunting season closures are guided by the Kootenay Elk Management Plan that called for a 20- to 40-percent reduction to local elk populations. Elk populations now have been reduced 35 per cent, and lowering the elk harvest is now needed to maintain elk numbers at the management target agreed to

in the plan, and to avoid continued population declines. Population surveys conducted in January 2013 estimate there are 7,509 elk in the South Trench area. The 2008 population for elk in the South Trench was estimated at 11,580. Contact: Brennan Clarke, Media Relations Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations 250 356-5261

Detroit’s RoboCop statue to be unveiled next year ASSOCIATED PRESS



DETROIT — Creators of a Detroit statue of the fictional crime-fighting cyborg RoboCop say they plan to unveil it next summer. Venus Bronze Works in Detroit is getting ready to cast pieces of the statue and on Tuesday showed off its 10-foot-tall (3-meter-tall) model to The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press. The 1980s science fiction movie was set in a futuristic and crime-ridden Detroit.

The movement for a RoboCop statue started in 2011 after a social networking campaign exploded in support of the project, quickly raising money to make it happen. Brandon Walley, director of development for the non-profit the Imagination Station, says the statue “will add nicely to Detroit and the rejuvenation that’s happening here.’’ He says the hope is that the statue will stand in a prominent place downtown.

Explorer says underwater ‘yellow brick road’ is leading to more US pirate booty ASSOCIATED PRESS

BREWSTER, Mass. — He calls it “the yellow brick road’’ because it’s literally sprinkled with gold dust. This road runs along Cape Cod’s shifting seafloor, and undersea explorer Barry Clifford believes it leads to undiscovered treasure from the wreck of the pirate ship Whydah. About two weeks ago, Clifford and his dive team took a trip back to the wreck site, and Clifford returned more convinced that the road he’s exploring is a path to riches. “We think we’re very, very close,’’ he said. The Whydah sank in a brutal storm in 1717

Underseas explorer Barry Clifford holds a piece of eight, right, and a metal syringe salvaged from the wreck of pirate ship “Whydah” during a video interview in Brewster, Mass., Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2013. with plunder from 50 ships on board. Clifford discovered the wreck site in 1984 off Wellfleet

Doctor saves choking diner’s life with pocket knife tracheotomy Associated Press

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — A noted California doctor armed with just a pocket knife and a pen performed an emergency life-saving tracheotomy on a diner who was choking on a piece of meat. Dr. Royce Johnson, Kern Medical Center’s chief of infectious diseases, cleared the airway of Pauline Larwood at The Mark restaurant in Bakersfield, California, the Bakersfield Californian reported Tuesday. Some of the nation’s top doctors and other area leaders who were in town for a symposium on valley fever also were in the restaurant. Johnson is the chief of infectious diseases at the Kern Medical Center in Bakersfied. Larwood is a Kern Community College District board trustee. A Bakersfield assemblywoman, Shannon Grove, said she and her husband were seated at a table with Larwood and her husband when she started choking on Monday. Grove said her husband ran to Larwood and tried to perform the Heimlich manouevre. He called for a doctor and Johnson attempted the technique as well. “She had already started turning a real like blue, her fingers and her lips,’’ Grove said. After the Heimlich failed to open Larwood’s airway, Grove called emergency dispatchers and said she watched in amazement as Larwood was laid back in a chair and Johnson used a friend’s pocket knife to make an incision in her throat. “He didn’t scream; he just said, ‘I need a knife,’’’ Grove said. As several physicians gathered around Larwood, someone called for a pen which Johnson then broke in half and inserted the hollow cylinder to use as a breathing tube. The procedure was successful as Larwood was rushed to a hospital. Her son said Tuesday that Larwood was doing fine.

and has since pulled up 200,000 artifacts, including gold ornaments, sword handles, even a

boy’s leg. But just this year, Clifford learned far more treasure may be

resting with the Whydah. Colonial-era documents discovered in April indicated the Whydah raided two vessels in the weeks before it sank. Its haul on those raids included 400,000 coins, the records said. A Sept. 1 dive during what was supposed to be Clifford’s last trip of the season uncovered evidence he was near those coins. That convinced Clifford he had to make another trip before summer’s end. So Clifford and a seven-man crew went back on a three-day trip that ended Sept. 13. Clifford headed for the “yellow brick road,’’ which refers to a gold and artifact-strewn path

Champion steer disqualified from Stampede for banned substance Bill Gravel and Canadian Press

CALGARY — It’s not exactly a case of steeroids, but a review has upheld the suspension of a championship steer at this year’s Calgary Stampede for the use of banned substances. Drug testing of the top two steers in the July 13 Steer Classic Competition revealed the presence of two separate drugs, Ibuprofen and Flunixi, in the 2013 winner. The animal was immediately disqualified and a review by Stampede’s Agriculture Review Panel released Wednesday agreed with the original ruling. The two non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs that were detected are prohibited in any quantity under event rules. The rules state all animals are to be presented without any alterations to their physiological state and free of violative drug residues because the competition is designated “terminal,’’ meaning the champion steer enters the food system. “This was a serious, yet simple issue,’’ said Paul Rosenberg, vice-president of programming at the Stam-

pede. “The steer was disqualified for a violation relating to two separate drugs within the animal’s system. It’s our responsibility to facilitate a fair competition with high ethical standards for our human participants and high quality care for all animals.’’ The panel found that the rules were explicit and clear, the drug testing protocols were valid and the tests did reveal the presence of the two drugs.

“We’ve addressed a number of issues over the last few weeks including a review of our drug testing protocols that verified three important things: the testing methodology used is appropriate for bovine, blood sampling is valid for drug residue detection and cross-contamination did not occur,’’ said Rosenberg. “After reviewing the key elements of the decision, we are very confident with the original disqualification.’’

extending between two significant sites at the Whydah wreck that are about 700 feet apart — a cannon pile and a large chunk of wood that Clifford thinks is the Whydah’s stern. The trove of coins and other treasure likely poured from the stern as the ship broke up and the stern drifted to its rest 300 years ago, he said. Divers searching the path on the recent trip pulled up several concretions, which are rocky masses that form when metals, such as gold and silver, chemically react to seawater. Diver Jon Matel said one discovery was following another, even though divers were working in “black water,’’ or zero-visibility. Matel says several feet of a fine seaweed called mung settled in the excavated pits and it was like diving in a vat of black gelatin. “You’re going by your feel, your touch, your hands, and the ping of a metal detector,’’ Matel said. “When that thing goes off, it’s a

great feeling.’’ X-rays show all the newly retrieved concretions have coins and gold inside. To Clifford it’s more proof of high concentrations of metals and coins being dumped en masse on that spot of sea floor. Clifford believes two examples that were pulled up on the previous trip are particularly compelling evidence: a cannonball piled with 11 coins and a foot-anda-half long piece of iron stacked with 50 coins. “Did all of those coins just happen to fall on this one little piece of iron? Or were there thousands of coins there, and this is just an example of what’s left?’’ he said. Clifford has no doubt it’s the latter, but he’ll have to wait until next summer to try to find out. He’s taken 21 trips this summer at a cost of more than $200,000. But the worsening weather and lingering boat problems after a recent lightning strike make another visit impossible until June.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Use the daytime hours to the max. You could be surprised by everything you can accomplish. Listen to your sixth sense when dealing with a neighbor. An idea might trigger your imagination and keep you distracted most of the late afternoon. Tonight: Happily head home. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Be aware of your checkbook balance, and catch a change quickly. Your ability to move past the obvious while looking for deeper reasons and more information will help. Remain responsive to others, even if you feel a bit overwhelmed. Tonight: Accept an invitation to go out. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You are full of spunk in the morning. The cost of enabling a situation to move forward could be higher than you’d anticipated. Don’t be so cocky about having enough funds dedicated to this project. Tonight: Follow a suggestion from someone who has had more experience than you.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) You might be slow to take action, but once you do, it could be difficult to stop you. You still will want to weigh the pros and cons before making a decision. Know what you desire in the long term. If someone does not make the grade, you will know soon. Tonight: A force to behold. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Use the morning to the max. Meetings will be more successful as a result. You have a lot to think about this afternoon, and you might feel pressured by others to come to a conclusion. Listen to their feedback. Debate an option with a trusted friend. Tonight: Keep evaluating. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Others will continue to pressure you until you decide to become unavailable. Some might say that your attitude is selfish, but that is not the case. You usually give a lot to others, so taking some time for yourself is smart. Tonight: Make plans with a favorite person or two. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You are willing to walk in some-

For Better or Worse

one else’s shoes. Do it more often in order to prevent a problem from developing. Respect and honor your differences, rather than judging them. Your ability to take the lead in a trying situation will emerge. Tonight: A force to be dealt with. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) A partner seems much more fun-loving than in the past. Be ready to switch gears, as you might need to make a long-distance call. You know what is going on with this person. Trust your instincts, despite what you might be hearing. Tonight: Opt for a movie or other fun happening. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You are able to digest a lot of information and then quickly share it in a clear manner. However, when people drop a lot of information on you, it takes time to sort it all out. Ask a key friend for help in separating the viable facts from fiction. Tonight: With a favorite person. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Get as much done in the morning as you can. By afternoon,

meetings and people in general will occupy your time. You are correct in thinking that you need to establish what is too much, yet you might find it difficult to say “no” to others. Tonight: Make exciting weekend plans. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Your playfulness will be hard to resist, but you might need to tame it a bit in the afternoon. You have a lot on your plate, and you have the ability to handle it. Start taking care of business. Make time to discuss an important idea. Tonight: Take a walk or go to the gym. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You might be slow to start in the morning, but by afternoon, you will be full of ideas, enthusiasm and energy. See what a couple of hours can do? If an idea or thought keeps haunting you, make a point to do something about it. Tonight: Put up your feet and relax. BORN TODAY Poet T.S. Eliot (1888), former New Jersey Gov.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I started dating “Zach” 18 months ago and have been living with him for almost a year. Things are perfect except for one thing. Before we met, Zach dated another girl for three years before me. She was horrible and hurtful toward him. When I began seeing Zach, his ex started harassing me to the point where I had to take out a restraining order against her. The problem is, Zach’s older sister is still in constant contact with the ex. She always talks about her in front of me and even allows the ex to babysit her children. She often invites the ex to go places with her and posts pictures of the two of them on Facebook. Zach has had many fights with his sister about this, telling her how hurtful it is to both of us, yet she still continues to do it. I’ve tried everything possible to make his sister like me, but I can’t keep competing with the ex. It’s causing a strain between Zach and his sister. I don’t have issues with anyone else in his family. What can I do to get the ex out of the picture permanently? -- The Current Woman in His Life Dear Current: Zach’s sister is doing this for one of two reasons: Either she likes getting your goat, in which case, your response is very gratifying for her. Or, she doesn’t want you to dictate who her friends can be. Either way, your response should be the same: Ignore it. If her main purpose is to annoy you, she will become bored with the tactic when she sees it has no effect. And if she is truly friends with this woman, the relationship is not your business. The added benefit of ignoring it is that Zach will be grateful. You already have his total support, and that is what counts. Dear Annie: I recently bought my first smartphone and have yet to figure out the proper etiquette for using it in public. I was taught that it is rude to answer one’s phone when in the midst of a conversation. I believe this also goes for texting or using apps. I try to avoid using my phone while at social events. If I have to make a call or respond to a message, I excuse myself to another room. Lately, I have noticed people using their phones in all types of situations that I would consider inappropriate. Are these people just oblivious to the standards of respect that should be shown to others, or have the standards changed? Is there a good set of rules to follow when using my smartphone in public? Also, how can I politely let people know that their phone use is making me feel ignored? -Confused College Kid Dear College Kid: May we clone you? Basic phone etiquette says that you do not take a call when you are with someone else. Letting it disturb your conversation indicates that the call is more important than the person you are with. If it is an emergency, excuse yourself and call back. Try not to speak too loudly. Every person around shouldn’t be privy to your conversation. (It is also a safety issue in case you are giving out personal information.) If someone ignores you to answer a call or play Angry Birds, ask them nicely to please put their phone away. If they still cannot focus their attention on you, say, “I can see that you are busy. I’ll talk to you later.” Dear Annie: This is for “Torn Grandma,” who babysits for her granddaughter who may be allergic to Grandma’s dog. Perhaps Grandma could watch her granddaughter in the child’s home or in a dog-free room that has an air filter running daily. The child should be tested to be sure it’s the dog that is truly the cause of her reaction. -- Your Local Veterinarian Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Why you should take a trip to Thailand Carla Nelson of Maritime Travel tours Thailand’s spectacular islands


hen should you not go to Southeast Asia? Well... now. If you were following the weather news last week, you know that it is typhoon season in Asia. We know it as hurricane season here in North America. Same thing: big storm, high winds, tons of rain. This is not the time to go... but it is a beautiful, fascinating area of the world and you should see it – preferably during dry season! September and October are the rainiest of the rainy season, and the best months (hottest and driest) are November to February. It’s a long flight to Thailand (more than 16 hours) so take some time to visit properly. Flights are reasonable for the distance (at about $1,500), and once there, you will get good value for your money. A few years ago, I travelled to the Andaman area of Thailand and did some island hopping. I have never seen such white sand beaches or crystal-clear blue waters (bathtub-warm!) anywhere else in my travels so far. Here are the highlights of the places I visited. Phuket is about 900 kilometres south of Bangkok. This part of Thailand is nestled in the Andaman Sea and the Indian Ocean. Phuket is the largest island, and is renowned for its world class dive sites. It is also a busy tourist area, so visit and then get out to the smaller islands for a little less chaos. Koh Phi Phi Don is the largest and only inhabited island of the six islands in the Phi Phi archipelago. ‘Koh’ means island, and ‘Phi Phi’ is pronounced peepee. Phi Phi Don has some lovely accommodation that is reasonably priced. The island attracts a lot of backpackers and there is cheap hostel accommodation, but there are also some beautiful bungalows on stilts with hardwood floors, with big open decks and stunning views of the beach and the sea. These resorts have open-air restaurants where most meals are

The beaches of Thailand are stunning and, when calm, a ‘long tail’ fishing boat is a beautiful way to see the area. served family style. Exploring beautiful beaches, spectacular snorkelling and diving, boating along island

cliffs and caves – these are just some of the activities you can enjoy here. Koh Lanta archipela-

go is made up of over 50 islands, though only three are inhabited. I stayed on Lanta Yai. Bungalows on the beach

are spacious and reasonably priced. The most magnificent sunsets can be seen right from your deck chair. Going out for a ‘longtail’ fishing boat ride is a must, but make sure the water is calm – they are probably safe, but they don’t look it! Krabi is on the mainland of Thailand, and one of my favourite destinations. White sandy beaches for swimming, coral reefs for diving, forests with caves and waterfalls for exploring. There is even rock climbing there. Take at least a couple weeks to visit the islands, and do your shopping in Bangkok on the way home. That’s a whole other article!

Cranbrook peace celebration considered a huge success Submit ted

daily townsman / daily bulletin

The coolish temperatures did not dampen the enthusiasm of the crowd that graced Idlewild Peace Park for the United Nations International Day of Peace Celebration on Sept. 21, 2013. There were many displays for the public to look at and participate in: the project on all the provinces and territories of Canada that many of our schools participated in; the Anglican youth group displays and the White Dove of Peace that some of the international students “flew” around the celebration for the youth group; the Arts Council’s peace pinwheels; the Baha’i Children’s Group “decorated deer” and tree hangings; information on a new website “East Kootenay Humanity Network” which was to be launched on Sept. 21; a map of the world made by the international students where people ‘pinned their country’; and a pamphlet, ‘What does peace mean to me?’ to share your thoughts about peace, some of which were shared throughout the program. During the day there was a flurry of excitement as many volunteers and a huge contingent of 30 or more international students from the College of the Rockies International Department helped to bring and set up a tent courtesy of Bridge Interiors, set up staging for the performers, set up chairs courtesy of Frank Sandor, Sandor Rental; set up a tent for the displays; and decorate the trees in the Peace Park. There was much fun and

laughter as 75 international flags of the world (which were painted by children at summer projects in Rotary Park) were weaved around to embrace the celebration; the candles for the evening were prepared; and some balloon popping as many balloons were made ready for the children attending the celebration in the evening. Lovely and very talented, Joelle Winkel opened the celebration leading us with ‘O Canada’. We were honoured to have dignitaries MP David Wilks and Mayor Wayne Stetski present and welcomed their profound words which once again indicated how fortunate we are to be Canadians; our very important Colour Guard from the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 24 in Cranbrook; and Sweeheart Youth Ambassadors, Alicia Leasak and Makenzie Yates, with words of wisdom from their perspective. The entertainment began with a beautiful and soul stirring dance by Brianna Salmon, Stages School of Dance, under direction of Sheri Green, to the music ‘Instrument of Peace’ by the Canadian Tenors. This wonderful rendition truely does set the tone in everyone’s heart to embrace love, peace and unity. Equally stunning were the dances performed by the Royal Stewart Highland dancers under direction of Jane Nixon; the Metis Jiggers under direction of Amy Cross; and the very colourful Filipino-Canadian Association of East Kootenay Dancers under the direction of Lourdes Butalid.

All of the spectacular dancers are real crowdpleasers; we are so honoured to have them as part of the celebration and look forward to all of them returning next year. Our musicians and singers did a fantastic job of engaging the crowd and graciously filling in for last minute cancellations. These very talented individuals were: Joelle Winkel; Joel and buddy from Connect Church Group; John Dumas; Kenneth Trusler from Invermere; and well-known star Ed King, B.C. Country Hall of Fame. As the shivering audience silently left this moving and inspirational celebration, the sounds of “Stand Up And Say Yes” by Carla floated though the air; the words from the chorus leave a profound message to all of us: “Anyone who wants a better tomorrow, Stand up and say yes, I’ll do my part.” The committee for Cranbrook Celebration for Peace Society wishes to extend a very sincere and humble thank you to all of the many volunteers (you know who you are), sponsors and local businesses that so graciously donated items to make this celebration the success it has become. It is because of dedicated hard-working and sincere individuals in our community that special events like this can be presented to the community as a whole to enjoy. Also a huge thank you to all of the performers, and to the audience that attended. See you next year, Sept. 21, 2014, at Idlewild Peace Park.
