Mayors meet with Premier

Minister suggests joint task force on urban deer issues C AROLYN GR ANT


Two of Kimberley’s citizens are now Canadians. August Paw and Thaw Thi (pictured here with their youngest daughter Ku Lueh Tha) took their Oath of Citizenship last Thursday in Kelowna.

Sometimes a meeting is valuable even if there is no appreciable movement on an issue, says Mayor Ron McRae. Such was the case when McRae along with Wayne Stetski of Cranbrook, Gerry Taft of Invermere and Garry Litke of Penticton, along with other municipal officials met with Premier Christy Clark on the issue of urban deer. It is important to keep the issue top of mind with the provincial government,

McRae says and to keep reminding the government that municipalities cannot bear all the costs of dealing with deer on their own. “I thought the Premier was receptive to the conversation,” McRae said. “She asked good questions. “Minister Steve Thomson was also there and he has more of a history with the issue. He suggested we take a look at striking a task force and look at a management plan in cooperation with the province.” McRae said that Kimberley and Cranbrook are well ahead of other communities in dealing with deer, with Invermere not far behind and could bring a lot of resources to a task force.

Proud new Canadians A long road C AROLYN GR ANT

It is almost six years since August Paw, Thaw Thi and their daughter Hser Dri Htoo arrived in Kimberley after a long journey from a refugee camp on the Thai-Myanmar border. Brought to Canada by the East Kootenay Friends of Burma, they arrived to a new home furnished by volunteers, and began the transition into Kimberley, and Canadian, society, helped along the way by volunteers. Over the past six years, much of their extended

family has been brought to Canada as well, and they have another daughter Ku Lueh Tha, who was born in Canada. Last Thursday, in Kelowna, August Paw and Thaw Thi proudly took their Oath of Citizenship and became Canadians. “It’s been a long road for this hardworking family. They’ve been studying non-stop since they found out that their application was accepted almost two years ago. I’ve never seen anyone so dedicated,” said Pam Bailie, CBAL’s ESLSAP (English as a Second Language Settlement Assistance Program) co-

ordinator for Kimberley. August Paw and Thaw Thi would like to thank all the CBAL volunteers who helped them on this journey to citizenship: “A great big heartfelt thank you to Heather King, Gayle Webb, Ellen Chase, Cailey Chase, Flo Brokop, Ken McRae, and Ali Douglas for the countless hours spent teaching Canadian history, politics, geography and culture. It was all worth it.” “We wouldn’t have passed the test if it hadn’t been for the CBAL program and all their volunteers. They spent so much time with us and it was

very hard. Thank you so much. And thank you to Susan for driving us to Kelowna so that we could take the test and to Pam who took us to our ceremony. We are very happy now.” “EK Friends of Burma is very proud of August Paw and Thaw Thi for passing the increasingly difficult Citizenship test,” said Shaunna Jimenez of Friends of Burma. “This family has flourished in Kimberley thanks to the wonderful support of so many friendly, helpful residents.

Convincing the province on St. Mary Lake Road C AROLYN GR ANT

The efforts to get the province of British Columbia to reclaim responsibility for the St. Mary Lake Road could be a long road to nowhere. When Mayor Ron McRae told Council that he was going to approach the Ministry of Transportation around responsibility for St. Mary Lake Road, longtime Councillor Albert Hoglund’s ad-

vice was ‘good luck, but don’t hold your breath’. It seems that advice was sound. “I was part of the Regional District of East Kootenay presentation to the Ministry,” McRae said. “Jane (Walter, Area E representative) and I got three minutes. They took notes. They seemed somewhat interested but there was more interest in the Elk Valley floods and remnants of that.” Still, McRae says the City won’t give up. City staff will be meeting with local Highways staff soon around a number of issues and will bring it up again.

If there is one human attribute that I as a dog am envious of, it is the strength of your bloodline bond. It is your sense of family.

daily townsman / daily bulletin

An unrestrained dogumentary.

I too have a mother, a father, and a passel of littermates but my link to them has been broken. It has been replaced, I suppose, by the multi-species pack I now run with, and a fine bunch they are. But still, it is a loss to no longer have that bond with those with which you share a genetic link and a common early history.

You humans nurture the relationship of family by putting it above job, friends, and even self. You have family vacations, reunions, dinners, nights, and days, ad infinitum. You even have family hikes, which are - as I found out this summer - pretty amazing events. My humans have had but a single litter, from which they were blessed with a male and a female. Both are now adults and function independently of their parents but still make efforts to maintain the family unit. The girl even went so far as to travel all the way from her home near the Pacific Ocean, back to visit her birth parents and littermate. To celebrate this reunion of genetic materials, many events were planned. Not the least of which was “The Hike.”

The Boy Arrives: Boulder is pleased to find his pack mate at the trailhead.

Wrasslin’ From a dog’s perspective, a perfectly legitimate way for litter mates to interact.

The Beach: The girl enjoys a tranquil moment on the sands of Bear Lake.

It was decided that we would trek to Bear Lake, a liquid jewel high in the mountains of the Wild Horse drainage that both offspring had toddled to on wobbly little bipedal legs many years before. The boy had led us to believe that he wouldn’t be coming along, but when I bailed out of the truck at the trail head, I caught the unmistakeable scent of my young prankster pack mate on the breeze. I rushed him enthusiastically and did my best to lick the sly grin from his face.

The trail to the lake is a good one, steep in places but mercifully short. We young ones rushed ahead and would have been there in no time except for the old dude. He kept falling to his knees and pretending to take pictures of wild flowers. We all knew this to be nothing more than a feeble ploy to stop and catch his breath but we played along. These rest stops gave the siblings time to visit, chat and interact. They teased, cajoled and roughhoused in the way you would expect a couple of pups from the same litter to do.

Even with all those supposed photo opportunities, we eventually made the lake. I went for a swim and thought perhaps we could turn this into a day at the beach, but the boy had more energetic ambitions. He convinced his sister and father that we should scramble to the top of the ridge at the end of the lake so as to take in the views.

Excuses, excuses: Indian Paintbrush blooms and Western Anemone seed heads allow the old dude plenty of reasons to stop and catch his breath. The View From Here: Boulder and the panorama looking towards Bear Lake from the top of the ridge.

The trail winds its way through a plethora of wildflowers as it climbs steeply, so it wasn’t long before our fearless pack leader, surrounded by this abundance of excuses, was leading from the rear.

The boy was still playing at the clown, teasing his sister and showing off his mountain abilities, but when his sister found herself feeling less than comfortable at one of the more exposed spots on the climb, his jokester persona fell away. In a heartbeat he came to her aid, coaching her up the last bit to the crest of the ridge.

The boy showing off his scrambling skills.

You humans are indeed a unique and empathetic species.

The old fella eventually made it to the top, took several pictures of he and his offspring together and then we all headed back down to the lake for a refreshing dip.

Yes even the furless humans splashed breathlessly about for a bit and I swam with them. The water may have been cold, but its icy chill couldn’t compete with the overwhelming warmth of that moment. That moment of realizing I was with family. Photos and word processing by Dan Mills

Travelling with the sun

Arne Petryshen Townsman Staff

A Thunder Bay man is hoping to raise awareness on the uses of solar power by riding a modified trike from Ontario to Victoria B.C. Rick Small began his journey on July 31 and has been on the road since then. The trike is a Dragon e-bike that’s been modified into the Light Dragon. It runs on solar power and the elongated scooter carries one large solar panel on it and pulls one behind. The vehicle doesn’t move fast – with a top speed of 32 km/h, but Small said the trip could have been a lot quicker with a few modifications. One of those would have been battery wall charger. “If I would have brought my battery wall charger I would have saved myself two weeks,” he said. The electric trike would usually

have a range of about 50 km, but thanks to the solar panels, Small can go over 200 before having to let the batteries recharge. Small’s originally made the bike because he is a solar enthusiast and hoped to cut his emissions down to nothing. He also hopes to see the day the roads are filled with solar vehicles that are charged through low hanging lights over the highways as they are driven. He also noted that solar vehicles are economical and don’t require the further investment of gasoline or other fuels. So once the initial investment of the vehicle and solar panels was made, the vehicle can be charged up with the light of the sun. So what will Small do when he reaches Victoria? “Victoria is just a destination,” he said, adding that he could have made it anyplace. For him it was more about Arne Petryshen photo proving the journey across most of the country was possible on a solar-pow- Rick Small is cruising across Canada on his modified solar trike to raise awareness of the potential ered, three-wheeled scooter.

There is an opportunity for public participation and involvement in the City of Cranbrook Highway 3/95 Revitalization Committee. Membership is open to residents of the City of Cranbrook only. The Highway 3/95 Revitalization Committee is a select committee of Council established under section 142 of the Community Charter. It has been formed to identify opportunities to improve the attractiveness of the highway corridor (Highway 3/95 – Cranbrook Street and Van Horne Street within City limits) and prepare recommendations for improvement including consideration of the functional requirements of Highway 3/95 and its accesses as well as its relation to adjacent land uses and the broader community. The Committee’s focus will be to make recommendations aimed at making the highway corridor more attractive to the travelling public including consideration of public and private lands. The City of Cranbrook is seeking one (1) representative: One (1) business owner of a business located on Highway 3/95 in Cranbrook. Terms of reference for the committee are available on the City’s website. Interested individuals are invited to submit a completed Volunteer Application form available at City Hall or on the City’s website – Applications will be accepted at City Hall, attention Maryse Leroux, or by email at, no later than Thursday, October 10, 2013, at 4:30 p.m. local time.

Citizenship for Kimberley residents FROM PAGE 1 Whether it is Ted from across the alley teaching Thaw Thi how to winterize his car, David teaching him how to set up a barbecue, or Mary taking them for their first grocery shopping trip, so many Kimberley volunteers have made becoming Canadian a wonderful experience for this family. “Friends of Burma sponsored this couple as part of August Paw’s extended family to Kim-

berley in 2008 and continue to voluntarily provide support to this large family. More volunteers are always needed; for example, right now the children could use some help with their homework.” EKFOB has also sponsored Thaw Thi’s extended parents to Cranbrook and are seeking volunteers to help them with their English skills. Under the new regulations, newcomers cannot apply for Citizenship until they

have a benchmark 4 level of English. At the current level of ESL instruction available to Thaw Thi’s parents (1 hour/week), it will take decades to get to this level. That is why volunteers are so crucial in this process! If you would like to volunteer to assist Friends of Burma in Kimberley, phone Shauna at 250-422-3259.

Rumble in the Rockies Tre vor Cr awley Sports Editor

The College of the Rockies was preoccupied with hosting their annual Rumble in the Rockies preseason volleyball tournament over the weekend. The women’s Avalanche team played host to six other teams from Alberta, featuring mostly college squads looking for some tuneup before the beginning of their seasons. The event also attracted the heavy hitters out of the CIS league, with the University of Calgary Dinos fielding a squad of players. The Avs played three games on Thursday,

two of which were backto-back, with two losses and a win. The ladies played another three games on Friday, compiling the same record. Based on their round robin record, they headed into the playoffs on Saturday, and beat the Lethbridge College Kodiaks for a chance to take on the Dinos in the semifinal. However, that’s where the road ended for the Avs. The Dinos went on to the tournament final, and were bested by the Red Deer College Queens in five sets to win the preseason championship. The Avs ended the standings tied for third with MacEwan University.

When the Saturday Gala presentation by the Kootenay Performing Arts Company was cancelled due to poor ticket sales, the company moved quickly to salvage at least part of the event. And thank goodness for the 60 or so people who were at the Chateau Kimberley on

Friday night. The concert in the intimate Chateau lobby by Pablo Diemecke and his string quartet was absolutely fantastic. It is truly a loss that a larger audience was not able to enjoy this unique experience. Executive Director Tony James has many other events planned for the winter. If this is an indication of the expert performances we can expect, Kimberley

should be lining up for tickets as space will be at a premium. Congratulations to Shirley Rossi and the Board who have worked hard to transform the Summer Theatre into a year-round experience. Welcome to Kimberley, Tony! Don McCormick Kimberley

Wanted: water/electrical building history

Things are happening! The group working to restore the small brick water/electrical building behind City Hall is making some progress. Willie Kappler has donated a whole truck load of heritage Cranbrook bricks to be used in infilling. Plans are being drawn up to start a fundraising drive to cover materials and expert assistance. Now the group is looking for more history on the building. Do you have stories? Have you ever worked in the building? Do you have photos of the building through time? We are working on an updated Facebook page so that the public can track the work. Those who use Facebook might consider “Liking” the Facebook page ‘Save the Cranbrook City’s Waterworks and Electrical Department Building.’ This gives updates on the project’s progress. As well, we have started designing an interpretive sign to be placed near the building. We would be happy to interview anyone with memories of the building or working within it. As well, anyone loaning photos to the project will get them back promptly. We just need to scan them at a high resolution so that we can use them both in the restoration and the interpretive work. The Columbia Basin Institute of Regional History has offered to do all the scanning for us at no charge. Anyone with information regarding the water/ electrical building can contact Derryll White at 250489-9150, or drop by the offices of the Columbia Basin Institute at #3 – 926 Baker Street downtown. We are looking forward to getting on with the work. Regular reports of progress will be given both on Facebook and in the news media.

Science loses ground to superstition


rom Stockholm to Sydney to Sicamous, September was a bad month for science. In Sweden, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change finally issued its widely leaked update on human-caused global warming. As expected, it downgraded predictions of temperature rise in the face of 15 years of measurements that show little or no average surface temperature increase. The official spin also went as expected. The revelation that more than a dozen computer prediction models have all more or less agreed, and all have been wrong, was played down. The IPCC went from “very likely” to “extremely likely” to affirm its belief in human-caused warming, even as its own core evidence went the other way. Again and again we are told that the vast majority of scientists believe in human-caused warming, and those who don’t are labeled “skeptics” or even “deniers” with hidden agendas. The problem is, science isn’t supposed to be done by polls or popularity contests, or assertions of faith like those that greeted Galileo’s wild claim that Earth is not the centre of the solar system. Before the angry mail starts to arrive, let me hasten to add I am not arguing for or against the theory of human-caused cli-

mate change. You can label me a “skeptic” as I view the temperature readings and the shifting theories advanced to explain them. Speaking of temperature data, David Suzuki had a problem with that at a TV town hall in Australia. Polite, well-informed questions soon revealed that while Suzuki rails constantly about the horrors of global warming, he BC VIEWS doesn’t actually know much about the latest science. Tom As I’ve written before reFletcher garding his CBC-funded attacks on Canada’s oil and gas industry, Suzuki is not only behind on his homework, he resorts to cheap, sensational tricks to exaggerate and misrepresent hazards. His tactics are identical to the U.S.-financed environment groups that obsessively target Canadian petroleum. As for his appearance on Australia’s public broadcaster, don’t take my word for it. Just Google “An Audience with David Suzuki” and watch the show for yourself. Back in B.C., local politicians gathered in Vancouver for their annual convention. One of the most intense debates was over a call to the provincial government to declare B.C. “genetic engineering free.” The heart of this movement, which has resorted to vandalism in Europe, is hostility towards Monsanto’s “Roundup ready” seed. Speakers at the municipal conven-


tion warned of sinister “corporations” trying to contaminate and control our food supply for profit. The debate pitted hobby farmers against professionals. Peace region grain farmers said such a ban would put them out of business. Others pointed out that the province has no jurisdiction and that scientific decisions shouldn’t be influenced by emotion. The session ended with a classic pseudo-scientific claim. A woman who used to have a couple of bee boxes said someone’s bees died and there was a Roundup-ready canola field next door. Case closed. The misguided “G.E.-free B.C.” motion was supported by a narrow majority. As it turns out, there are agricultural pesticides that may be harmful to bees. The David Suzuki Foundation is part of an effort to get one of them banned in Canada. The problem is, it’s not Roundup, and it’s got nothing to do with genetic engineering. They’re called “neonicotinoids,” because they’re similar to nicotine. Old sheep farmers may recall using a crude version: tobacco soaked in water to kill insects on sheep. It’s ironic that as the “information age” accelerates, our society, overwhelmed by conflicting messages, slips back towards superstition.

Toronto to host 2016 NBA All-Star game C ANADIAN PRESS


Brad Lukowich, an assistant coach with the Lethbridge Hurricanes, addresses his players in a stoppage during a game against the Kootenay Ice on Friday night at Western Financial Place. Lukowich, a Cranbrook native, joined the Hurricanes’ coaching staff in the offseason.

Lukowich comfortable with coaching role TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Brad Lukowich was back in town on Friday night, but it wasn’t a social call. The Cranbrook native rolled in with the Lethbridge Hurricanes to challenge the Kootenay Ice, nearly pulling off an upset and forcing a shootout in a 4-3 loss. Lukowich, a defenceman who retired from professional hockey in 2012 after spending the twilight of his career with the Texas Stars in the AHL, signed on as an assistant coach with the ‘Canes in the offseason. After a 15-year career of professional hockey highlighted by two Stanley Cup titles with the Dallas Stars and Tampa Bay Lightning, Lukowich now finds himself on the other side of the bench. In his final years with the Stars, he acted almost like a player-coach, mentoring the young talent on the team’s roster, and he is continuing to do that in his new role with the ‘Canes. “To be honest with you, these guys have picked up a lot of things a lot quicker than I ever could’ve imagined,” said Lukowich. “We had a whole new system coming in, we have a whole new approach to the game, we have whole

new off-ice workouts, practices. Everything’s new now. “You’ve got guys who’ve been here three or four years now doing it a certain way, and you gotta come in and try to do it differently. It’s not an easy task, so for us, we got to look at the bright side and see the strides we’ve made.” Lukowich isn’t the only fresh face behind the bench as head coach Drake Berehowsky was hired in the offseason as well, replacing Rich Preston after a four-year tenure.

The ‘Canes suffered a collapse in the second half of the season last year, slipping from the middle of the pack in the Eastern Conference standings to just shy of a playoff spot when they were leapfrogged by the Kootenay Ice. The Hurricanes ended the season below 0.500 with a 28-34-3-7 record. “We don’t know what happened here last year, and we don’t really care,” said Lukowich. “We’re

looking into the future, we’re looking to see what we have coming up against the night. “We’re still finding out what these guys have. We’ve got specific roles for guys to play, we don’t really care what they did in the past, and we’re just moving forward everyday.” However, Lukowich did point to the Kootenay Ice last year, using the team’s second-half performance as an example of what the Hurri-

canes want to see from themselves. “They started slow and [Ryan McGill] Gilly dialled them all in, once they bought in and were all on the same page, they turned into a really strong force, and that’s kind of how we’re approaching our season this year,” Lukowhich said. “Stick with the plan, get these guys all going in the same direction and have a really solid push in the second half.”

OLD G2012

TORONTO - The 2016 NBA all-star game is coming to Toronto and the Raptors are looking to one of the music industry’s biggest stars to help revamp the franchise in time for the festivities. The club has named Drake its new “global ambassador” and the Toronto rap star will have a voice in the team’s rebranding. Tim Lieweke, president and CEO of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment says he and his team are in the process of planning a major facelift that will include a new

look and new colours, but not a new name. Lieweke says Drake will be heavily involved in the rebranding effort, which is expected to take the next two seasons. “I’m really out here with the people, I’m in touch with what they want to see,” Drake said at a news conference Monday confirming Toronto as the 2016 host. “I really just want excitement for this team. I want us to be one of the biggest teams in the league.” Lieweke called the allstar announcement the beginning of a “new age” for the Raptors.

at Bootleg Gap Golf Course Clubhouse, Kimberley. An amazing collection of

Handcrafted Creations

Entrance fee $2.00 – donated to the Kimberley Food Bank. Soup & Sandwich Buffet: Saturday 11am - 2pm Wheelchair accessible



ARIES (March 21-April 19) Others desire your precision and your ability to handle details. Your compassion comes across through your semi-businesslike attitude. When you express your feelings, the other party gets the message. Tonight: The challenge is not to get involved in a power play. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) The morning might be the most important part of your day. Your follow-through counts with a boss or with someone you would like to impress. Your creativity will inspire others, especially a close friend. Tonight: Live today as if there were no tomorrow. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You will flow with ease in the morning. Make important calls at that time, and/or handle any dealings involving others. By afternoon, you will be best served by cocooning at home. Know that you will get a lot done once you emerge, and quickly at that. Tonight: Head home.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Try to be more in sync with others, and know full well what you need to do. Honor a change that is going on, even if you do not necessarily feel comfortable with it. Let someone know how much you care. Plan to visit this person soon. Tonight: Hang out with a friend. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Move forward with a project that has been on the back burner. You might not be as sure of yourself as you would like to be in the afternoon. Realize that there is a good reason for this lack of confidence, as someone could be trying to sabotage your plans. Tonight: Head home early. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You might sense a change of energy midday. Use the high energy of the afternoon to forge ahead with an important cause; otherwise, a loved one could become very difficult. Understand that this person is set on having things go his or her way. Tonight: Enjoy the moment. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Use the morning to the fullest,


when networking is favored and getting along with others is highlighted. You will have your way, as long as you use the time well. By the afternoon, you could feel overwhelmed and be in need of some personal time. Tonight: Be less available. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Be aware of the fact that you are about to accept yet another responsibility. If you don’t want to take on this task, make yourself more aware of the nuances in your conversations. A meeting in the afternoon could be your major concern. Tonight: Only where your friends are. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You’ll have a limited amount of time to proceed in a certain direction or to blaze a new trail. Allow your innate leadership qualities to emerge. Know that the possibility exists that you no longer will have the same freedom to explore alternatives. Tonight: Burn the midnight oil. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) A partner might demand more of your attention than you willingly want to give him or her

this morning. Do not be surprised if this behavior resurges later today. Detach, and perhaps distance yourself, in order to see how to integrate what you must do. Tonight: Surf the Web. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You might feel as if you are a social director on a cruise, as so many people want to see you and speak with you. You give a sense of direction to many people’s dreams. Someone might want to isolate you in order to monopolize your time. Tonight: Visit with friends over dinner. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Get an early start, if possible, and handle the most important matters first. You could find that you won’t be able to concentrate to the same degree, come afternoon. A meeting with a boss or parent might steal the scene. Listen to what this person says. Tonight: Opt to not be alone.

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I am a 57-year-old woman, and my husband is 61. We met online and spent weekends together for seven months before getting married. I was deeply in love with him for the first six months. Lately, my attitude and feelings have changed dramatically. This man drives me crazy and grosses me out. He is constantly clearing his throat and blowing his nose. He is flatulent and burps long and loud all day and night. He’s clumsy, and his memory is going downhill fast. He becomes very defensive when I try to talk to him about any of this. I still love him, but not romantically. I feel more like a best friend. I have to force myself to kiss him, let alone sleep with him, and due to his denial, I have lost a lot of respect for him. This was not the man I dated. He retired six months ago and now sits around all day getting stoned. He doesn’t make friends, and he needs open heart surgery and a knee replacement and will require a caregiver very soon. He knew I was a nurse when we met, and I think he married me because of his overwhelming fear of being alone. I have spent decades taking care of people who are disabled, demented and in denial. I now see this marriage as a live-in job. He can’t understand why my feelings have changed and blames me. I feel totally trapped. I bought the house we are living in and brought more money into the marriage. However, because I am entitled to his retirement benefit when he dies, he considers our financial contributions to be equal. I didn’t date for 12 years before I met him and thought we were very compatible. I should have lived with him for at least a year, but I wanted to set a good example for my children. Please don’t suggest counseling. It won’t change his personality or improve his declining health and honesty. -- Regrets in Paradise Dear Regrets: The counseling isn’t for him. It’s for you. You feel trapped with a man you no longer wish to be intimate with, and the future you see is that of patient and nurse. There’s no point in beating yourself up over what you didn’t notice when you were dating. That happens to everyone. The question is what you are going to do about it now. And that’s where the counseling can help. You need to sort out how you feel, whether you are willing to stick it out and the emotional cost to you. Dear Annie: Why do people make a big deal out of men who are crossdressers? I am 43 years old, happily married and not gay. I’m a businessman, and I wear lacy lingerie with breast forms under my suits every day. My beautiful wife of 20 years thinks I look hot in lingerie. When we go out to fancy restaurants, I dress up as a woman. I’m very passable, and our four teenage daughters are OK with it. There are straight women who wear men’s clothing, and I never hear anything negative about them. -- A Happy Father and Husband Dear Happy: Women who wear men’s clothing generally do so because it is more comfortable. Men who wear women’s clothing, which is decidedly less comfortable, often do so because it gives them a sexual thrill or satisfies some emotional need. (Some women dress like men for the same reasons.) The important thing is that your wife and daughters are OK with it. No one else’s opinion matters. Dear Annie: I believe “Native New Yorker,” whose scratchy voice makes people think he is foreign, missed out on a lot of opportunities to have fun. His response to questions regarding his origin should be: “I’m from Mars. Please take me to your leader.” -- C.

Working together to make a difference On Oct. 10 buy your local newspaper from a volunteer on the street. Your donation goes directly to a literacy program in your community. Join the Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy and Black Press to promote, celebrate and support literacy initiatives.


he Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy (CBAL) is respected locally and beyond for our leadership in community-based literacy programs, but this success could not have been possible without the partnerships that exist across the region. Partnerships are essential to the work we do and the most effective have been a result of a few key ingredients. First, an issue or challenge drives communities to seek solutions and participation from traditional and non-traditional partners. Second, a working relationship based on mutual respect, collaboration and open communication must be established among partners. Third, the acknowledgement of a

shared goal and the steps to achieve that goal must be identified. These ingredients become the beliefs and values of the partnership and create a forward path to change. Across the region, partnerships are working to support literacy initiatives. Regionally, CBAL partners with Selkirk College, College of the Rockies, Okanagan College and College of New Caledonia to support adult literacy initiatives. As a result, more adults are able to participate in learning opportunities in non-traditional settings. These programs support the development of parenting, life, workplace and academic skills. Locally, CBAL programs are partnering daily to deliver programs. Not only does

Introducing the CBAL team in the Kootenay & Boundary Region. CBAL partner with colleges, but we partner with school districts, libraries and other community organizations. Visit to see what is happening in your community.

One of the greatest partnerships that have developed from the communities is the community literacy planning committee. These committees focus on identifying challeng-

es and issues concerning literacy, share resources and information and focus efforts on creating a healthy learning community. These committees demonstrate that work-

ing together is essential in achieving what we cannot do alone. You can make a difference in your local community. Participate in the Reach a Reader campaign by purchas-

ing a paper on Thursday, Oct. 10, volunteering to sell papers, or spreading the word as a campaign champion. To get involved, contact the Cranbrook Daily Townsman in Cranbrook or the Kimberley Daily Bulletin in Kimberley, Katherine Hough, Community Literacy Coordinator in Cranbrook at khough@; or Kim Roberts, Community Literacy Coordinator in Kimberley at kroberts@ CBAL is a non-profit charitable organization that supports literacy development in the communities of the Columbia Basin and Boundary region of south eastern British Columbia.
