Kalum Ko film is a Banff Mountain Film Fest finalist

18-year old student already has impressive film credits C AROLYN GR ANT EDITOR@DAILYBULLETIN.C A

For over 37 years, the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival has showcased a selection of films from around the world during a nine day Festival that takes place annually in Banff. A pre-selection committee narrows down over 350 entries to approximately 70 finalists. The selected films are then viewed by international film jury and shown to the public during the Festival, taking place this year from October 26 to November 3. Having a film chosen as a finalist for the prestigious festival is a big deal for any film maker, no matter his or her experience. But just imagine what it means to an 18-year old from Kimberley. Selkirk grad Kalum Ko, who is currently studying Sciences at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan, recently learned that his film “The Questions We Ask” COURTESY KALUM KO has been chosen as a finalist for this year’s Banff Mountain Film Kalum Ko’s film ‘The Questions We Ask’ highlights Bruce Kirkby’s journey on paddle-board from Vancouver to Victoria.

Emergency helpers busy behind the scenes When disaster strikes, a team of local volunteers springs into action to help people affected SALLY MACDONALD Townsman Staff

When an emergency occurs in the East Kootenay, be it a house fire, a chemical spill, or a landslide, a group of volunteers spring into action. But these are not the emergency responders who lay sandbags and douse flames; these volunteers con-

nect with people affected by disaster and find them a place to stay, bring food to sustain them, help their pets. The Emergency Social Services (ESS) program, a B.C. initiative offered through the Regional District of East Kootenay, is a team of around 12 volunteers with one coordinator

in each of the East Kootenay’s three sub-regions. “What happens is, when there is an emergency and someone has to be evacuated from their home for whatever reason, be it wildfire, house fire, floods, chemical spill, bath leak, then we are able to through the

Emergency Social Services program assist them with lodging, food, clothing and incidentals if required, for 72 hours,” explained Anita Charest, the coordinator for the ESS program for the East Kootenay’s Central subregion, which includes Cranbrook and Kimberley. See EMERGENCY, page 5

Sherpas Cinema film; Kimberley Conference Center, October 12 C AROLYN GR ANT

Whistler based Sherpas Cinema have become known for their stunning cinematography and ground-breaking story-telling. Awards include Best Feature-Length Mountain Film” - Banff Mountain Film Festival 2011; “Movie Of The Year” - Powder Video Awards 2012; “Best Film” - X-Dance Film Festival, SLC 2012; “Best Picture” International Freeride Film Festival, France 2011 and “Best Film Of The Year” - Adventure Film Festival, Copenhagen 2011. Fans of adventure films in Kimberley will have a chance to view Sherpas’ latest offering, “Into the Mind” when the Dirtbag Festival brings it to the Kimberley Conference and Athlete Training Centre on Saturday, October 12. The movie has a Kimberley connection, as aspiring film maker Kalum Ko (see related story, Front Page) worked on the film. “Last spring and summer, I worked with Sherpas Cinema, one of my favourite film companies,” Ko said.

“In the spring, I was the production assistant on a two-week shoot in Calgary for their most recent film, “Into the Mind”. During the summer I was in Whistler working for them as an editor. This past weekend, I attended the world premier in Whister. It was really cool to see how the whole film came together, and that all their hard work paid off.” Press for the movie states, The Sherpas blur the lines between dream state and reality, and immerse you into the mind of a common skier as he attempts to climb and ski the ultimate mountain. Innovative athlete segments are actually a glimpse into his dreamscape, each one harboring messages that help inform our hero’s current, real-life choices. As you experience the majesty of Alaska, Bolivia, the Himalaya and beyond, Into the Mind paints a philosophical portrait of human kind. How do we balance risk versus reward? Why are we inspired to rise to the challenges in our lives and what do we learn on this journey to attain them?

The purpose of World Homeless Day is to draw attention to homeless people’s needs locally and provide opportunities for the community to get involved in responding to homelessness, while taking advantage of the stage an ‘International Day’ provides.

members for tax purposes. But Judge Diane Campbell said in her ruling last August that Blackmore’s community in Bountiful, near Creston, didn’t meet any of the criteria for such a tax break. “The appellant ought to have known that ignoring the astronomical magnitude of the differences between the reported income/benefits and the amount of benefits assessed ... would attract some type of tax consequences,’’ Campbell said in her ruling. Blackmore claimed income from of $172,000 for the years 2000 to 2004 and 2006. He said his yearly income fluctuated between $20,000 and $40,000. But Canada Revenue Agency added hundreds of thousands of dollars a year of income and shareholder benefits from Blackmore’s company J.R. Blackmore & Sons Ltd. See page 5

Emergency social services From page 1 ESS provides primary services such as food; lodging; clothing; and family reunification. ESS may also provide specialized services such as emotional support services; first aid; child minding; pet care; and transportation services. Earlier this year, ESS helped out in Hosmer when the June floods devastated the community. But Charest said 2012 was a busier year, between the flooding in Wasa and the land slide in Fairmont. ESS has also begun to assist local Search and Rescue groups in largescale searches. For example, they helped during the search for missing Sparwood three-year-old Kienan Hebert in 2011, and when a snowmobiler went missing in an avalanche near Hell Roaring Creek this part March. Their role was helping to sign in the many volunteers who offered to help search on the spot, and provide food for the search crews. “That’s nice to help. It’s a different role for us but the more we are utilized, the better we are,” said Charest. Volunteers go through extensive training to help when their feet hit the ground in an emergency, learning how to manage a reception centre and group lodging, fill out documents such as registration and referrals, and manage walk-in volunteers. This weekend, the Emergency Social Services volunteers are taking part in a two-day workshop on helping pets in an emergency. The courses will go through such things as species and breed recognition, feeding and animal care, animal intake planning and compassion fatigue. The weekend session, which runs on Saturday, October 5 from 9 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. and on Sunday, October 6 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., is open to members of the public who want to know more about helping pets in an emergency. “The courses are free and will provide people with a basic overview of emergency pet services and sheltering in evacuations or emergencies,” said Charest. “We need to increase

We are hoping that there are some animal lovers out there who are interested in taking part in these courses and joining our ESS team,” said Charest. “Our long-term hope is

For now, we are eager to get the training and encourage anyone interested to consider registering.” Volunteers with ESS are not required to give much of their time.

Tembec is selling off some of its land in the East Kootenay. The forestry company announced on Monday, September 30 that it hopes to sell $75 million worth of land in the region by the end of 2014. The first sale is a

1,875 hectare parcel, which has been sold for $4.2 million to Nanaimo-based company Jemi Holdings Ltd. The transaction will be complete on or about November 1. Tembec’s statement does not say where in the East Kootenay the parcel is located. According to a website for Jemi Holdings, the company owns more than 25,000 acres in B.C. It specializes in developing, subdividing and marketing real estate. Tembec has had a presence in the East Kootenay since 1999 when it purchased the Elko and Canal

Flats sawmills from Crestbrook Forest Industries. In November 2011, Tembec sold those mills to Canfor. In March, Tembec sold its Skookumchuck pulp mill to Va n c o u v e r- b a s e d Paper Excellence Canada. The site of Cranbrook’s shuttered planer mill still belongs to Tembec. The mill was shut down in 2010 and destroyed in a fire last year. A sawmill on the same site was closed in 1999. Tembec owns approximately 64,500 hectares of land in the East Kootenay.

Blackmore appeals tax decision From page 4 The brief notice of appeal filed said the judge didn’t properly apply a section of the Income Tax Act as “it accords with the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the values to which it gives expression.’’ In her earlier ruling, Campbell said Bountiful was too dispersed

and fragmented to qualify as one of the specific types of communities that Parliament envisioned, such as Hutterite communities. Blackmore, who told the court he had 21 wives and 47 children, had his income reassessed and he was also hit with a penalty of nearly $150,000 in the August ruling.

And in the States, nothing can be done at all and at least 800,000 civil servants are temporarily out of work. And they are not being paid. But the politicians are. So get back to work. On both sides of the border. Carolyn Grant is the Editor of the Kimberley Daily Bulletin

Shattering the sounds of silence What’s Up?

“Necessity is the mother of invention. The father is probably remorse.” Red Green


t was the quietness of life over a thousand years ago in a medieval village that would strike a visitor from today — no planes overhead, no swish or rumble from traffic. Stop reading this for a moment and listen a while. Can you hear something? Some machine turning? A tap running? A distant radio or TV or a pneumatic drill digging up the street? Of all the varieties of modern pollution, noise is the most insidious.’ ‘Yet, in England, in the year 1000, hedgerows actually had a sound. You could hear the insects and the baby birds chirping in the nests, and the only unmusical noise you would hear came from the wheezing of the blacksmith’s bellows. In some villages you might hear the bell in the church tower, or the creaking and clunking of the wooden cogs in one of the watermills. But that was all. As the riffles in the nearby stream chortled and bees buzzed while wood pigeons cooed you could listen to creation and take pleasure in its subtle variety.’ I read this just recently although it was written back in 2000 as a sort of thousand year celebration and is inclined to be a little flowery because the stink of un-

washed bodies and the stench of open cesspools aren’t mentioned, but it is true about the silence. Today, most of us live in perpetual hubbub, and modern cell phones, iPods, wrist watches and other electronics don’t help one iota. As I was composing this very diatribe, I was conscious of a persistent hum from my furnace, a quiet sound of coffee percolating, cars passing in the street, a police siren downtown and then the shrill scream of the telephone at my elbow. In our lives Peter these days there is always noise of our way of livWarland the ing; there is virtually no escape. Of course, we are accustomed to the sounds of nature: crows arguing in the apple tree, the incessant buzz of a million yellow-jackets and the neighbours’ cats fighting on the lawn, but the new sounds penetrate. Think of the whistles and banshee screams that practically all vehicles emit these days when they are back-up. Imagine the din when a person attempts to turn his vehicle around on a narrow bush road with a steep bank. These modern day noises accompany a person when he or she attempts to get away from them. High in the local mountains a person can still hear C.P.R. trains and even the little locomotive at Fort Steele. Jets and helicopters roar overhead and shatter the tranquility of the hills. I well remember that time that my

friend discovered a wrist watch abandoned beside a mountain creek. He opted to take it back to town and maybe find the owner but it got itself destroyed. Shortly after it chimed “The Yellow Rose of Texas” for the third time, my severely irked comrade smashed the time-piece against a convenient rock. Enough was enough. Most of us are inured to the newer sounds inflicted upon us by science but we still react obediently to the electronic signals that these new inventions send us. We are like puppets on strings. One evening, seven of us elderly gentlefolk were enjoying a pleasant time in the sunshine imbibing some tea and light refreshments when someone introduced a birthday cake surmounted by a single candle to represent the innumerable ones that should have been there. Later on, after the hilarity had died down, that candle began to play its tinny version of the birthday song and simultaneously, all seven of us codgers began searching our pockets, purses and underwear for cell phones, iPods, pace-makers and other noise creators. We could have been a septet of simians checking for fleas. The youngest of us, not yet an octogenarian, almost had hysterics. Eventually, I suppose, even the oldest of us become accustomed to the cacophony that we humans have foisted upon ourselves. Peter Warland and his finely tuned ears live in Cranbrook

istential threat to Israel, why would he oppose negotiations that might put an end to that possibility? Exactly what would be lost by giving peace a chance? What would be lost, if a lasting deal emerged from the negotiations being mooted between Tehran and Washington, is the ability of successive right-wing Israeli governments to extort unconditional American military support for Israel, no matter what it does, precisely because it allegedly faces an existential threat from Iran. Since the Russian-sponsored deal over Syria’s chemical weapons has similarly sidelined the prospect of an American attack on Syria (which Israel sees as its second most dangerous enemy), the foreign policy that has sustained Netanyahu for almost two decades is collapsing. Without a plausible military threat to Israel — and where else could it come from, if not Iran or Syria? — his ability to bully successive American administrations into ignoring Israel’s illegal settlements on occupied Palestinian land, its clandestine nuclear and chemical weapons, and much else besides, would slowly drain away. So Netanyahu will do everything he can to strangle the newborn possibility of an American-Iranian rapprochement in its cradle. As the scenes at Tehran airport demonstrate, Rouhani also faces strong opposition at home from those whose political instincts or interests demand a continuation of the Iran-against-the-world confrontation that has already lasted for a generation. Rouhani’s initiative has created a great deal of hope, but its enemies are already working to kill it. Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist based in London

Woods, Mickelson, Els add to their list of Presidents Cup partners DUBLIN, Ohio - Matt Kuchar is the 10th player to have Tiger Woods as a partner in the Presidents Cup. Woods and Kuchar are in the fifth of six matches, taking on Angel Cabrera and Marc Leishman in fourballs. This is the seventh Presidents Cup for Woods, and the second for Kuchar. International captain Nick Price has put Jason Day and Graham DeLaet of Weyburn, Sask., in the opening match against Hunter Mahan and Brandt Snedeker. Ernie Els and Phil Mickelson also have new partners. Mickelson, the only player to have competed in every Presidents Cup, has Keegan Bradley. That’s his 13th partner in this event. Els got his 10th partner in Brendon de Jonge, one of seven rookies on the International team. It’s the first time since 1996 the opening session is fourballs. Associated Press

As NBA’s oldest player, Steve Nash works toward bounce-back season


EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - When Steve Nash was a Canadian teenager moving down to Santa Clara to accept his only scholarship offer 21 years ago, he never could have imagined his remarkable NBA career would lead to the dubious honour he’s getting this fall. The Los Angeles Lakers’ 39-year-old point guard is the oldest player in the NBA, he recently learned. And it isn’t an achievement that’s going on the mantel next to his two MVP trophies. “It’s not a privilege I ever really dreamed about,” Nash said with a grimace. “It’s pretty strange and, I guess, surreal in a way. Obviously, I’m thrilled to still be playing, and I don’t feel as old as I probably look to some of these young guys.” Although Nash has no more than a few grey hairs at his temples, his 18th NBA season will be all about fighting back time. He’s completely healthy after injuries essentially scuttled his debut season with the Lakers, but his age and mileage already have coach Mike D’Antoni talking about limiting Nash’s minutes or even getting him to take days off during the season.

After a weekend of volleyball action against teams from the Alberta college circuit, women’s head coach Agata Bendkowska has a better picture of her team.

ble in the Rockies tournament. “We had some games where we struggled and some great games,” said Bendkowska. “That’s what I planned. We played everybody, that’s what I planned, too. After the weekend, I started to see girls in the right positions. “We played with some teams in the same league as us, and some great teams, like the

University of Calgary. We had a chance to play with better teams and weaker teams. The girls were very happy and I’m very happy.” The team played eight games over the three-day tournament, and Bendkowska had a chance to see what everyone could do. “We played everyone and threw them into new positions trying to figure out new things,” said Bendkows-

ka, “but at the end of the tournament, as it got more serious, I saw girls who were stronger mentally and physically, who are definitely leaders.” The Avs ended up coming third overall in the tournament, getting past the Lethbridge College Kodiaks in four sets in the quarterfinal before falling to the University of Calgary Dinos in the semifinal. The Avs also lost to

the Dinos in the round-robin, however, they played an intense match against the higher-level CIS squad. “It was a really great opportunity, because we got to see what they do at the higher level and we had nothing to lose going into it, so we just played our hardest,” said Jen Pillon. “We had to up our game in order to compete with them and I feel like we did that.”

NBA going international with exhibition games BRIAN MAHONEY Associated Press

NEW YORK - David Stern is soon on his way to the Philippines and Taiwan. After that, it’s off to Beijing and Shanghai. His final months as commissioner are the NBA’s boldest yet when it comes to playing internationally, and he thinks bringing the league around the globe will remain important long after he’s left office in February. “Numerically, without question, to have 10 games this season, it’s our most ambitious,” Stern said of the schedule that begins this weekend. “It’s really just a continued statement to our international audience of our attempts to play games in their time zones and to demonstrate that we think it’s a global game and we appreciate

their support and interest.” There will be 12 teams playing outside the U.S. and Canada, the most ever, and the league will play regular-season games in two countries beyond those for the first time. There are stops in old standbys and first-time trips to cities in Brazil and Spain that will be hosting major international competitions in the next few years. International growth, long a passion of Stern’s, has become something much more: It’s mandatory. “If you listen to Coca-Cola or GE or the great brands - Samsung, Sony, Apple - increasingly more and more of their revenues and profits are going to come from outside the United States. The numbers make it clear, because there are 300-plus million

people in the U.S. and we’re approaching 7 billion outside the U.S,” Stern said in a phone interview. “And so looking at every enterprise that’s doing business, communicating with consumers and the like, I have seen international as a growth opportunity that will continue literally for decades, and our sport is one that crosses borders, along with soccer, in a wonderful way. And we have just scratched the surface.” The schedule opens Saturday with Oklahoma City playing Turkey’s Fenerbahce Ulker in Istanbul, where Kevin Durant was MVP of the world basketball championship in 2010. Philadelphia plays the next day at Bilbao, Spain, a host site for next summer’s renamed World Cup of Basketball.

The MLB playoffs are also for the low rollers Ronald Blum Associated Press

NEW YORK - Hey big spenders! Baseball’s playoffs are no longer your exclusive playground. Pittsburgh, 26th among the 30 teams with a $73.6 million payroll, rolled past Cincinnati on Tuesday night and into an NL division-series matchup against St. Louis. Oakland, 27th on the spending list at $71.1 million, according to Major League Baseball’s latest figures, won the AL West and faces Detroit. And Tampa Bay, 28th at $65.6 million, plays the wild-card game on Wednesday night against Cleveland, 21st at $88.6 million. “We’ve created things that have really helped our sport. They’ve really helped us in a myriad of ways,” Commissioner Bud Selig said Tuesday. “The economics - they were archaic. I used to joke that we were still in back in the Ebbets Field-Polo Grounds days. What I call the reformation of the economic system certainly created a lot of this, there is no question.” Sure, some of the big spenders found their

way into October. The Los Angeles Dodgers raised their spending to $236.8 million during the season and are currently about $100,000 behind the Yankees. (Final figures may change depending on award bonuses and revisions). Despite a No. 1 payroll, the Yankees finished tied for third in the AL East following an injury-filled season.

“I think that the playing field is not level, never will be. But we as the Pittsburgh Pirates have committed ourselves to never using that as an excuse.” Bob Nutting Boston is third at $174.1 million, Detroit fifth at $153.4 million, St. Louis 11th at $119.3 million and Cincinnati 13th at $113.3 million. But half the playoff teams are from the bottom 50 per cent in spending, with the A’s, Rays, Pirates and Indians joined by Atlanta (16th at

$95.3 million). Increased revenue sharing has helped. But a team must make good draft picks and be prudent with contracts and clever with trades. “I think that the playing field is not level, never will be. But we as the Pittsburgh Pirates have committed ourselves to never using that as an excuse,” controlling owner Bob Nutting said just before the team’s first post-season appearance since 1992. “Is it easier to build a great club with $200 million than with $75-$80 million? Absolutely. But I believe, have always believed and will continue to believe, that we can be competitive at that level. We need to make different decisions. We need to make smart decisions.” Parity has increased markedly. No team has won consecutive World Series since the New York Yankees took three in a row from 1998-2000. Half of the 30 teams have made the expanded playoffs in the past two years. Twenty-one have reached post-season play in the last five, and every club except Kansas City and Toronto has appeared in the playoffs

over the past 13 seasons. Many accustomed to the October spotlight already are home. Missing out along with the Yankees were Philadelphia (fourth at $166.2 million), the Los Angeles Angels (sixth at $143.4 million), defending champion San Francisco (seventh at $141.3 million), Texas (eighth at $134.5 million) and Toronto (ninth at $125.9 million). Oakland, Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay have found success with youth. Only Houston ($29.3 million) and Miami $42.3 million had lower payrolls than the Rays, and they jettisoned veterans in favour of

young players. While they endured terrible seasons - the Astros were 51-111 and the Marlins 62-100 - they hope a young core will transform into a contender in a few years. “If you place that type of faith in them, a lot of times they’ll come through for you,” said Athletics manager Bob Melvin, who works under Billy Beane, the general manager who made “Moneyball” famous. Cleveland manager Terry Francona has seen the dollar divide from both sides. He led the large-market Red Sox to World Series titles in 2004 and 2007, and then

took over the more-limited Indians last fall. “Once the game starts, dollar signs go out the window,” he said. “It’s more helpful in the winter when you’re trying to sign guys, but I’ve immensely enjoyed this team and that has nothing to do with money. It’s the characters and the character on this team, and whether we win or lose won’t have anything to do with money.” Revenue sharing came in with the labour agreement in 1997, two years after the end of a strike that wiped out the World Series for the first time in nine decades. Revenue sharing was boosted again in the

2002 labour deal, when a tougher luxury tax was agreed to. That tax has gotten stiffer, and in 2011 players agreed to restraints on bonuses for amateur draft picks and international signings. “I took a lot of criticism back in those days,” Selig said. “Is it worth it now? You bet it is. Because I knew we were doing the right things.” Rays manager Joe Maddon thinks there’s another factor at play: drug testing, which began in 2003. “I thought that the elimination of PEDs in the game permits teams with lower payrolls to compete and win.” he said.

CFL QB Reilly showing no signs of concussion John Korobanik Canadian Press

EDMONTON - Edmonton Eskimos quarterback Mike Reilly went through a normal day of practice Wednesday and showed no signs of any residual concussion symptoms following the nasty head shot he took from Toronto Argonaut defensive lineman Cleyon Laing last Saturday. Reilly was knocked out the game and the team said on Sunday he had suffered a concussion. He missed practice Tuesday but was back taking most of the reps

on Wednesday. “Today was pretty much full-go for me.” the six-foot-three, 215pound first-year Eskimo said afterwards. “Because it’s non-contract every day for us (quarterbacks) nothing changed for me than it would on a normal Day 2. (Thursday) we will probably be a little more rigorous than a normal Day 3 for me. We’ll come out, have a normal practice and then do some strenuous cardio stuff and just push everything a little harder than normal. “As long as everything contin-

ues to go as expected I’m hopeful that I’ll be cleared to play. There only a few days but those are long days, there’s still lots to do.” The 3-10 Eskimos play the 5-8 Montreal Alouettes Saturday in a game they have to win to retain any realistic playoff hopes. Reilly remained in the game for one play after the hit - throwing a touchdown pass - but was pulled after feeling dizziness and confusion on the sidelines. He said Wednesday he’s felt no adverse symptoms since waking up on Sunday.

Parros injured with concussion as NHL fighting debate reignites C anadian Press

MONTREAL - Montreal Canadiens enforcer George Parros was released from hospital Wednesday after being treated for a head injury suffered in a fight with Maple Leafs tough guy Colton Orr during Tuesday’s season-opening loss to Toronto. Parros was knocked unconscious early in the third period after his face slammed into the ice during the scrap. Parros spent several minutes motionless on the ice before he was taken off on a stretcher. “Medical update on George Parros: he was released from the hospital, suffered a concussion, will be out indefinitely,” the Canadiens said Wednesday on their Twitter feed. Parros fell hard on his chin while attempting to punch Orr, who was tugging at his jersey. It was their second fight of a physical game, which the Maple Leafs won 4-3. It was the first game in a Montreal uniform for Parros, who joined the Canadiens last summer after one season with the Florida Panthers. The incident reignited the debate about whether fighting should be a part of the game. Many players say yes. “Fighting is not going anywhere in the game,” Vancouver defenceman Kevin Bieksa said. “It will always be a part of the game. We’ll play with a ten-

nis ball before we take fighthing out of the game.” Jets centre Bryan Little said he has “no idea what (hockey) would look like without it.” “As far as I can remember it’s been a good way for the players to kind of police the game themselves,” he said at practice in Winnipeg on Wednesday. Defenceman Zach Bogosian said much the same thing. “If they take fighting out of the game it will be a whole different dynamic and it won’t be the same,” he said. “Fighting should always be in hockey, not matter what, because you’ll get guys running around that play a lot tougher than they normally would. It’s good, it keeps everyone honest.” Winnipeg tough guy Chris Thorburn called the Parros incident a “freak accident.” “Hopefully the results of fights going into the future aren’t like that,” he said. Parros was drafted by the Los Angeles Kings in the eighth round (No. 222 overall) of the 1999 NHL Entry Draft. He made his debut with the Kings in 2005-06 and later played for the Colorado Avalanche and Anaheim Ducks.

Great year wraps up for dragonboat squad

Courtesy Sandy Zeznick

Abreast in the Rockies Dragon Boat Team paddlers have put the boat into hibernation and hung up their life jackets and paddles after another year of fitness, festivals and fun. We just completed our eighth year and were very pleased to welcome four new paddlers to our team. We continue to show improvement in technique, fitness and race results. The team is made up of breast cancer survivors and supporters as well as associate members.   Paddlers range in age from women in their  40s to their 70s.   All of our paddlers show a great spirit and support each other both on and off the boat. The team is a non-profit society and participates in awareness and is involved in fundraising to support local cancer projects. We were thrilled to be a part of the East Kootenay Foundation for Health’s “A Clear View” campaign which raised $1,000,000 for a digital stereotactic mammography unit. We were part of the “faces” of the campaign


The Abreast in the Rockies dragonboat team out on Moyie Lake. and were able to make a $5,000 donation. Abreast in the Rockies begins the season in February with gym workouts designed by trainer Jodie Pickering. The coaches, Connie Savage

and Deb Thompson, take the team to the pool in May to work on technique and then it’s off to Wasa or Jim Smith Lake in June and Moyie Lake in July, August and September. Members also take part

in hiking, running, swimming, biking, yoga and various other activities. This year the team took part in festivals in Alberta and Montana. We placed second in Women’s A conso-

lation and second in the survivor race in Lethbridge and third in the Women’s division and second in the survivor race at Flathead Lake. All race times for 500 metres were under three minutes!

Abreast in the Rockies is always looking for breast cancer survivors to join the team. If interested in friends, fun and fitness call Connie at 250-489-5573 or email Sandy at

Hawaii: paradise close to home What is


Uniglobe Travel’s Joyce Termuende explores the tropical islands of Hawaii

he Hawaiian Islands are quite simply paradise. The tropical climate is temperate all year round, the humidity is a comfortable level, the water is safe to drink, the beaches are spectacular and the locals are welcoming. There is something for everyone, from the metropolitan city of Oahu with upscale restaurants, shopping and nightlife, to small coastal towns such as Kona where the quaint shops and unique restaurants are sure to please. An easy five-hour flight from Vancouver lands you in either in Oahu, Maui or the Big Island of Hawaii. All of the islands boast warm Pacific tropical water with a variety of accommodations according to your budget. The island of Oahu,

Four good friends from Cranbrook who enjoy a glass of good single malt or fine Irish beverage together travelled to Scotland and then to Ireland to experience the culture, the geography and the weather of the lands that gave us the “uisage beatha” (water of life). John Mandryk will present a photographic tour with music from the tours on October 9 at 7 p.m. at the College of the Rockies lecture theatre. Admission is by donation to the Gogo Grannies and the presenters have donated a bottle of good single malt as a door prize to raise additional funds for the great cause that the Grannies support.

has many lovely beaches as well. The island of Kauai, “the garden isle”, has amazing cliffs on the Napali Coast, the beautiful Waimea Canyon to explore, as well as 50 miles of unspoiled beaches. There are quaint fishing villages to visit and a variety of hotels and condos for a range of accommodation. Kauai boasts that no building is higher than a coconut tree! The island of Maui, “the valley isle”, is very popular with travellers. It’s been voted “Best Island” by readers of Conde Nast Traveler for 19 years.

There are many championship golf courses to play and a trip up Haleakala volcano is unforgettable. Hawaii, “the big island”, is the newest in the chain of islands, and by far the biggest island. Kilauea is one of the world’s largest active volcanoes and is responsible for the ongoing growth of the island. The island has very diverse beaches, from green sand (olivine) to black sand and of course the beautiful golden sand. Hiking among sea cliffs and old lava tubes is a great way to experience the island! While all of the islands have beautiful beaches, amazing snorkelling, an array of shopping and restaurants, various activities such golf, zip lining or hiking, and a full range of accommodation levels, each island has a unique personality.

IV Therapy? Intravenous (IV) therapy involves the injection of vitamins and minerals directly in to the circulatory system. This method allows for higher, more effective doses to be administered to the patient as it delivers the compounds to the blood stream. As well, it eliminates the need for absorption through the digestive tract and metabolism of the liver. IV therapy has been shown to help with a wide range of conditions as the vitamins and minerals are important co-factors for many biochemical pathways in the body related to detoxification and energy production. The most common formula used is known as the Myer’s Cocktail and contains the following nutrients; vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, B complex, vitamin B5, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12. These nutrients help to support your body during times of stress to reduce inflammation, support immune function and increase energy. Other nutrients that can be added are glutathione which is the most potent anti-oxidant to relieve oxidative stress in the body and glycyrrhizic acid which acts as an anti-microbial agent to eliminate acute bacterial and viral infections. IV therapy can help to increase energy, reduce chronic pain, alleviate headaches, eliminate colds/ flus, reduce recovery time from injury, improve athletic performance, support detoxification, relieve stress, lower blood pressure, protect cardiovascular function, reduce inflammation, support immune function, alleviate PMS symptoms and increase anti-oxidant activity.

Minister issues order on BC Hydro meter fees Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – Energy Minister Bill Bennett has issued a cabinet order to the B.C. Utilities Commission to make sure it approves fees high enough to cover the costs of customers opting out of BC Hydro’s smart meter program. The order in council, signed by Bennett and Environment Minister Mary Polak, instructs the independent regulator to approve extra fees sufficient to meet the cost of manually reading mechanical electricity meters that remain in use, or collecting readings from digital meters that have their radio transmitter turned off on re-

quest of the customer. The order also directs the BCUC to approve fees to cover the costs of “failed installations,” either because the customer refused or because an obstacle was placed in the way of the installer. A spokesman for Bennett confirmed that the BCUC may still decide to lower the opt-out fees proposed by BC Hydro, or it may increase them if costs warrant. BC Hydro sent letters in September to about 60,000 residential customers who have refused wireless meters, giving them until December to choose. If customers insist on keeping their old meter, a $35

monthly fee applies effective Dec. 1. If they accept a smart meter with the “radio off,” a $100 setup fee is proposed, followed by $20 a month to collect readings starting April 1. If customers do not register a choice by Dec. 1, their meter will be left as is and the $35 monthly fee will be added to their bill. As it does with rate increases, BC Hydro will start charging its proposed fees as it prepares to defend them before the BCUC. If the commission orders changes, bills would be adjusted accordingly, with refunds or extra charges added.

Wireless meters undergo testing at a BC Hydro facility.

Colorado rock slide kills 5 members of family ASSOCIATED PRESS

DENVER — The U.S. Forest Service says a popular Colorado trail where a rock slide killed five members of the same family will remain closed at least until spring. John Peterson, deputy supervisor for the San Isabel National Forest, said Wednesday that Forest Service experts must inspect the site to see if it’s feasible and safe to rebuild the trail. He says that won’t

happen until after the coming winter. A rockslide buried the trail Monday, killing a Colorado couple, one of their daughters and two of their nephews from Missouri. Another daughter survived with a broken leg after her father shielded her. Chaffee County Undersheriff John Spezze says the trail should be closed permanently. The short, scenic trail leads to Agnes Vaille Falls and is a local favourite.

The U.N. Security Council called Wednesday for immediate access to Syria to provide desperately needed aid, expressing alarm at the rapidly deteriorating humanitarian situation. The unanimous statement was a quick follow-up to the Security Council’s first legally binding action on the 2 1/2-year-old Syrian conflict — a resolution passed Friday that called on Syria to eliminate its chemical weapons. British Ambassador Mark Lyall Grant called the presidential statement on humanitarian aid “a very welcome, positive step after years of paralysis in the Security Council.’’ A presidential statement is a step below a resolution. Some diplomats consider presidential statements legally binding but others do not. The statement aims at helping the nearly 7 million Syrians affected by the fight-

ing, urges the Syrian government to facilitate “safe and unhindered humanitarian access to people in need through the most effective ways, including across conflict lines and, where appropriate, across borders from neighbouring countries.’’ The statement urges the Syrian government to facilitate “safe and unhindered humanitarian access to people in need through the most effective ways, including across conflict lines and, where appropriate, across borders from neighbouring countries.’’ Without urgent increased humanitarian action, the council warned, the lives of several million Syrians “will be at risk.’’ The statement condemns all violence in Syria and increased terrorist attacks by organizations and individuals linked to al-Qaida as well as “the widespread violations of human rights.’’ It stresses the obligation under international

law to distinguish between civilians and combatants and the prohibition against “indiscriminate and disproportionate attacks’’ against civilians and the prohibition against using chemical weapons. Australian Ambassador Gary Quinlan, who drafted the statement with Luxembourg envoy Sylvie Lucas, said they decided to move rapidly to address the humanitarian crisis after Friday’s adoption of the chemical weapons resolution. Quinlan praised the council’s “strong, unified ... unanimous message to all parties in Syria.’’ Lucas said the humanitarian situation is dire: over 2 million refugees, almost 5 million Syrians displaced within the country, one-third of Syria’s housing destroyed, and 6,000 new refugees every day. U.N. humanitarian chief Valerie Amos praised the council for addressing “the horrifying humanitarian situa-

tion in Syria.’’ “As the number of those dying, displaced and fleeing the country continues to rise, we need the whole international community to come together to work to bring an end to this crisis,’’ she said. Amos said aid is urgently needed for up to 2 million people in areas that humanitarian agencies have been unable to reach for many months. She also called for a halt to the targeting of civilians and vital services including schools, shops and hospitals. Amos said “getting to a point where the Security Council has been able to reach consensus on humanitarian issues with respect to Syria is a very strong and important step.’’ “Our task now is to turn these strong words into meaningful action for the children, women and men who are the victims of the continued brutality and violence,’’ she added.

TORONTO — A man media reports describe as an occasional driver for Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has been arrested and charged with four drug offences in the city’s west end. Toronto police say Alexander Lisi, 35, is one of two men arrested Tuesday after a search warrant was executed in connection with an ongoing criminal investigation. Lisi is charged with trafficking in marijuana, possession of proceeds of crime, possession of marijuana and conspiracy to commit an indictable offence. He is to appear in court at Toronto’s Old City Hall today. Media reports describe Lisi as a friend and occasional driver for Ford. The Toronto Star reported earlier this year that Lisi was looking for a video that allegedly showed Ford using crack cocaine. Ford has said he does not use crack cocaine and the alleged video does not exist. The allegation surfaced in May 16 when reporters from the Star and the U.S website Gawker reported they were shown the video. In connection with Tuesday’s investigation, another man, Jamshid Bahrami, 47, of Toronto, is charged with possession of cocaine, three counts of trafficking in marijuana and conspiracy to commit an indictable offence.

Following a discussion with his contractor, Derek Spring, Manager of North Star Motors in Cranbrook contacted Kootenay Region LiveSmart BC Business Energy Advisor, Marilyn Christensen. Marilyn conducted a LiveSmart BC Business Energy Assessment and verified that North Star Motors was eligible to receive rebates through the BC Hydro Product Incentive Program. Her report helped Derek select what was best for the unique needs of his business by identifying potential product retrofit choices, energy savings, estimated costs, and the approximate time it would take for the new products to pay for itself through the rebate and energy savings. As a result North Star Motors upgraded all the lighting in the showroom and shop in two phases.

TESTIMONIAL Going into it, we thought it was going to be onerous, but it wasn’t. Marilyn worked through the application process with our accountant and it was done and over!” Derek Spring, Manager of North Star Motors. The existing metal halide lights were upgraded to T-5 fluorescent fixtures. T12 fluorescent lights were replaced to T8 fixtures. Since the completion, staff has testified to illumination improvements. “The rebate cheque arrived in about six weeks and was exactly what our application summary said it would be. My advice to other businesses is to take advantage of the LiveSmart BC: Small Business Program. Their energy advisors make it easy and not a huge workload.

Ron Sexmith oct 7


on Sexsmith is a Canadian singer-songwriter who started his first band when he was 14 years old. By the age of 17 he was playing the bar circuit in his hometown of St. Catharines, Ontario, where he quickly gained a reputation as “the one-man jukebox”. When his son was born in 1985 Ron decided to start writing his own songs, and soon after released his first album on cassette “Out of the Duff ”. Over the years he has released a total of 13 albums, growing in popularity and acquiring a number of famous admirers. Elvis Costello, Elton John, Paul McCartney, Steve Earle, and Sheryl Crow have all praised the Canadian pop-folk artist. Additionally, Sexsmith co-wrote “Brandy Alexander” with Feist and his song “secret heart” has been covered by Rod Stewart, Fiest and Nick Lowe. In 2011 he won a JUNO for songwriter of the year for the song “whatever it takes” that was covered by Micheal Buble. Ron Sexsmith’s newest album Forever Endeavour has been met with high praise from critics. His new music has been described as “deftly poetic, gently affecting songs that perfectly distil the pitfalls of being human”. Ron is joined by special guest Jenn Grant a Canadian JUNO nominated pop singer and songwriter touring her new record The Beautiful Wild.

‘Hunt for Red October’ author Tom Clancy has died at age 66 Hillel Italie Associated Press

NEW YORK — Tom Clancy, whose hightech, Cold War thrillers such as “The Hunt for Red October’’ and “Patriot Games’’ made him the most widely read and influential military novelist of his time, has died. He was 66. Penguin Group (USA) announced that Clancy had died Tuesday in Baltimore. The publisher did not provide a cause of death. Tall and thin, with round, sunken eyes that were often hidden by sunglasses, Clancy had said his dream had been simply to publish a book, hopefully a good one, so that he would be in the Library of Congress catalogue. His dreams were answered many times over. His novels were dependable bestsellers, with his publisher estimating that worldwide sales top 100 million copies. Several, including “The Hunt for Red

October,’’ “Patriot Games” and “Clear and Present Danger,” were later made into blockbuster movies, with another based on his desk-jockey CIA hero, “Jack Ryan,” set for release on Christmas. Alec Baldwin, Ben Affleck and Harrison Ford were among the actors who played Ryan on screen. The upcoming movie stars Chris Pine, Keira Knightly and Kevin Costner, with Kenneth Branagh directing. A political conservative who once referred to Ronald Reagan as “my president,’’ Clancy broke through commercially during a tense period of the Cold War, and with the help of Reagan himself. In 1982, he began working on “The Hunt For Red October,’’ basing it on a real incident in November 1975 with a Soviet missile frigate called the Storozhevoy. He sold the manuscript to the first publisher he tried,

WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, Vt. — A U.S. man charged with stealing original cards and letters written by poet Robert Frost has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanour charge in a deal with prosecutors.

WASHINGTON — U.S. intelligence officials say the government shutdown is seriously damaging the intelligence community’s ability to guard against threats. But they also say they’re keeping counterterrorism staff on duty, while they are worried about morale. Director of National Intelligence James R.

fine. Police say Bernaby took two letters and 13 Christmas cards written by Frost. They say the documents were in a desk donated three years ago to a non-profit agency where Bernaby worked. He then sold them for more than $25,000. Bernaby says he found the papers in the trash. Most were addressed to Frost’s former secretary. A civil case will determine their lawful owner.

ing staff from the CIA, National Security Agency and Defence Intelligence Agency — have been furloughed. Clapper says he has tried to keep on enough employees to guard against potential threats, but may have to call more back to work if the shutdown continues. NSA chief Gen. Keith Alexander says he has kept on employees working on counterterrorism, but that the shutdown has had a huge impact on morale. The total number of employees at such agencies is classified.

lished in 1984, the defection was a success. Someone thought enough of the book to give it to President Reagan as a Christmas gift. The president quipped at a dinner that he was losing sleep because he couldn’t put the book down — a statement Clancy later said helped put him on the New York Times bestseller list. Clancy was admired in the military community, and appeared — though he often denied it — to have the kind of access that enabled him to intricately describe anything from surveillance to the operations of a submarine. He often played off — and sometimes anticipated — world events, as in the pre-9-11 paranoid thriller “Debt of Honor,’’ in which a

jumbo jet destroys the U.S. Capitol during a joint meeting of Congress. Born in Baltimore on April 12, 1947 to a mailman and his wife, Clancy entered Loyola College as a physics major, but switched to English as a sophomore. He later said that he wasn’t smart enough for the rigours of science, although he clearly mastered it well enough in his fiction. Clancy stayed close to home. He resided in rural Calvert County, Md., and in 1993 he joined a group of investors led by Baltimore attorney Peter Angelos who bought the Baltimore Orioles from businessman Eli Jacobs. Clancy also attempted to bring a NFL team to Baltimore in 1993, but he later dropped out.

Namesake of new movie ‘Captain Phillips’ gets hero’s welcome at Vermont screening Lisa R athke Associated Press

WILLISTON, Vt. — The captain of the American cargo ship hijacked by Somali pirates four years ago returned home from sea to another hero’s welcome — this time for a sneak peek of the Tom Hanks movie about the ordeal. “Captain Phillips’’ got an early screening Tuesday night at a benefit in Richard Phillips’ home state of Vermont ahead of its national release in theatres on Oct. 11. Phillips got a rousing standing ovation after he addressed the packed theatre. He said the movie was entertainment but the benefit showing was an opportunity to raise money for a Champlain College scholarship in honour of a 2012 graduate who died. The event also gave him a chance to honour the military and say thanks to his crew and community in Vermont, who he said helped him and his family in a time of need. “The military — they are the true heroes in my story,’’ said Phillips, who was introduced by former Vermont Gov.

Captain Richard Phillips, the real-life ship captain being played by Tom Hanks in the docudrama ‘Captain Phillips,’ left, enjoys a laugh with Darlene Durett before a screening of ‘Captain Phillips,’ on Tuesday, Oct. 1, 2013 in Williston, Vt. Jim Douglas. Hanks plays Phillips in Paul Greengrass’ docudrama adapted from the captain’s memoir about the April 2009 hijacking. The actor kept Phillips’ beard and eyeglasses in the movie but he didn’t speak

using the merchant ship captain’s strong New England accent. Phillips spent five days as a hostage of Somali pirates on a lifeboat after the Maersk Alabama was hijacked. He was beaten, tied up and threatened before

he was rescued days later by U.S. Navy SEALs, who shot three of the pirates. Before the screening he said that he never felt empathy for the Somali pirates. “That never entered my mind,’’ Phillips said

in an interview. “We were always adversaries. I thought it was important to make sure we both knew we were adversaries in that. I thought that was important for me and my survival. There was no Stockholm syndrome.’’ The sneak peak in Williston was a benefit for a fund created in honour of Sarah Elizabeth Ramsey, who died in June after being struck by a car in New York City. Ramsey had dated Phillips’ nephew. The fund was established by Ramsey’s friends and family for third and fourth year marketing students who want to expand their professional and international experiences. The scholarship will be awarded each year. Ramsey spent a semester in Lima, Peru, during her junior year and completed an eightweek advertising internship in Shanghai, China, before graduating. “Captain Phillips’’ is expected to be a major contender in Hollywood’s awards season. It debuted at the New York Film Festival on Friday.

Vandal cuts arm off Reagan statue in Poland Monik a Scislowsk a Associated Press

WARSAW, Poland — Police were searching on Wednesday for a vandal who damaged a bronze statue of Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II in the Polish city of Gdansk by cutting off one arm of the former U.S. president and stealing it. The statue was unveiled just last year to honour Reagan and the Polish-born pope, who were both widely credited with helping Poland topple communism 24 years ago. The vandalism in the Baltic port city was discovered on Tuesday, setting off the search for the perpetrator, said Lucyna Rykowska, a spokeswoman for Gdansk police. The statue was inspired by an Associated Press photograph taken by Scott Stewart during the pope’s sec-

ond visit to the United States in 1987, and honours Reagan’s support for Poland’s struggle to end decades of communism. People interviewed by Poland’s TVN24 deplored the vandalism and stressed the popularity of the statue in the park where it is located, saying visitors often leave flowers there. The damage was initially estimated at more than 100,000 zlotys ($30,000), but the artist who made the statue said it could be repaired within weeks for far less. On July 17, 2007, Polish President Lech Kaczynski presented his nation’s highest distinction, the Order of the White Eagle, to Nancy Reagan on behalf of her late husband. Poland also has a statute of Reagan in Warsaw, and a roundabout in the city of Wroclaw has been named after him.

LOS ANGELES — Scientists have discovered ancient supervolcanoes on Mars similar to the caldera that sits under Yellowstone National Park. Volcanoes previously have been spotted on Mars, which is

known to have been volcanically active billions of years ago. What’s different about this supervolcano network is that it was found in the Martian northern highlands, a place not known to be active in the past.


BRANTFORD, Ont. — Police in Brantford, Ont., are examining videotape as they investigate vandalism to new statues of hockey great Wayne Gretzky in his hometown. Police say they have a video that was forwarded to them of Monday’s overnight vandalism, which involved someone defacing the statues with spray paint. But they say they have made no arrests yet in the defacing of the statues honouring the Great One, which were publicly unveiled Sunday outside the newly renovated Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre. The statues depict Gretzky holding the Stanley Cup over his head in victory, and as a youth with his parents by his side. Brantford Mayor Chris Friel calls the vandalism “disgraceful’’ and a “crime against the community.’’ Crews were at the scene Tuesday, cleaning off the spray paint.

Baby black bear rousted from irregular roost C ANADIAN PRESS

LUMBY, B.C. — A nine-month old British Columbia black bear cub with a penchant for perching on poles will spend her winter farther north, but closer to the ground. The cub was tranquilized and moved to a northwestern B.C. sanctuary near Smithers on Tuesday after clambering down from the top of a hydro pole in the North Okanagan community of Lumby, about 25 kilometres east of Vernon. The little bruin had been straddling the exposed crossbar of the windswept pole since Monday and there were concerns it could not get down on its own or would receive a fatal shock if it touched live wires just centimetres away. With the power cut, a conservation officer armed with a noose used a cherry picker to reach the bear, but it quickly proved it needed no help descending its irregular roost, clambering tailfirst down the roughly 12-metre pole and setting off through a field in a lumbering — although short-lived — bid for freedom. Conservation officials believe the bear was separated from its mother and several other bears when the nearby corn field they were living in was harvested. The youngster is now being cared for at the Smithers sanctuary and will be released as soon as it can fend for itself.

Studying images from several spacecraft orbiting Mars, researchers at London’s Natural History Museum and NASA found at least one massive volcano and evidence for several others that spewed huge clouds of lava and ash.

The finding described in Thursday’s issue of the journal Nature suggests that early Mars was more active than previously realized, and that such eruptions could have affected the red planet’s climate and atmosphere.

BEIJING — The death toll from a rare spate of hornet attacks in central China has reached 41 people, local authorities said Wednesday. The Shaanxi provincial government said in a statement that the attacks had plagued not only the city of Ankang, where 19 died as reported by the official Xinhua News Agency, but had killed 22 others in two adjacent cities in the province’s south. All told, more than 1,600 people have been injured, and 37 of them are in critical or serious condition in hospitals, the provincial government said. It said it has mobilized a special medic team and trained more medical personnel to treat victims, and an Ankang official told Xinhua that firefighters have been removing hornet nests.

Horoscopes by Jacqueline Bigar

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You could witness some radical, unexpected changes that have the potential to throw you into a chaotic frenzy. You probably will come out of the fog quickly, though, as you instinctively make the right choices. Tonight: Invite a special friend or loved one to join you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) A great idea will come up in conversation. You might be wondering what you can do in order to make a situation work. Listen to others, brainstorm with someone who has unusual suggestions and be willing to break patterns. Tonight: Get some rest -- the weekend is coming! GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You might feel as if a situation has gotten out of control. Note that a tendency toward excess surrounds you, and it can affect you. Know when to back down and say “no.” You could be surprised by a comment from a friend in a meeting. Tonight: Think “weekend.”

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Test out an idea, but allow only a limited number of questions in return. The questions will point to whom you’ll want to work with. Many people look to you as their leader. The reason lies in the fact that you know much more than they do. Tonight: Paint the town red. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Balance your checkbook, and be sure to stay on top of work and other various matters. Return calls, especially to a new friend. Some excitement could surround these conversations, which you might be more involved in than you realize. Tonight: Catch up on a friend’s news. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Allow your efficiency to mix with some unexpected news. Somehow, this situation will work out to your advantage. You might not want to have an emotional conversation, but you will have little choice. Take a deep breath before you start. Tonight: Beam in more of what you want. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)


You could be quite jolted by news that comes in from out of left field. Listen to the wise words of an older person, and you will gain a sense of direction as a result. Investigate the possibilities more openly; you might be surprised by what happens. Tonight: Go find some fun. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You might want to express more of what you need from a situation. Your ability to get down to basics helps many people, especially in a meeting. Clearly, there are no easy answers. Understand what is expected from you before you proceed. Tonight: Go for a good night’s sleep. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Be thankful for your supporters because, even when a situation is unstable, they come through and offer you good information and workable solutions. You could be taken aback by the suddenness of a change. Look at how revitalized you feel. Tonight: Ever playful. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You could see a situation far differently given some space and

time. Look past the obvious and take note of what is not being said. To be effective, you need to detach more often. You’ll see and understand much more. Tonight: Take action, but only if you’re sure of yourself. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You could be taken aback by certain events that are going on around you. You might see a personal matter differently from how the other party sees it. Think before you take action, as you’ll want to understand where this person is coming from. Tonight: A must appearance. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Defer to others, and understand that you might be coming from a different position in a situation. You could find it interesting to see what is going on from a new perspective. Your sense of humor will help you gain insight. Use care with your money. Tonight: Your treat. BORN TODAY Novelist Thomas Wolfe (1900), writer Gore Vidal (1925), civil-rights activist Al Sharpton (1954)

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I have a problem that I have never seen in your column. My 64-year-old father-in-law sends my middle-aged husband pornographic pictures. My husband and I share the same email address, and the last picture was extremely explicit. My husband does not check his email regularly. When he does, he ignores most of his father’s stuff, thank heavens. I haven’t deleted these emails, but I now think my father-in-law is a total creep. Is there anything I should do? I hope he sees himself in this letter. -- Offended Wife Dear Offended: Is your husband aware that his father is sending him these photos? If not, tell him. Then ask whether he wants to receive these pictures. He may not care, or he may prefer not to confront his father. Since they’re meant for him, he should have the final word, although you can encourage him to tell Dad to stop. We also recommend that you open your own email account so you are not subjected to this assault on your senses. Although why you would voluntarily open any email from this man is beyond us. Dear Annie: I’m 14 years old and adopted. As I’ve gotten older, the feeling of wanting to know my real family has grown stronger. Because my adoption wasn’t open, I can’t meet my biological family. I know the government means well by these laws, but it makes me feel empty inside. My adoptive family drives me insane with the excuse, “I can’t tell you much until you’re 18.” Isn’t there something they can tell me? Can the government really bar me from seeing my birth family? -- Left Lonely in My Heart. Dear Lonely: First of all, your “real family” is the one that raised you. There are legitimate reasons why birth records are not intended to be seen by kids under age 18. Reunions with birth parents sometimes work out OK, but they also can be difficult, unpleasant, depressing and a huge disappointment, especially if you are expecting too much. Teenagers, in particular, often go through emotionally rough waters, becoming upset with their adoptive families and mistakenly believing the biological family would be easier. Your parents are simply trying to protect you. But we understand that this is hard and unsatisfying for you. There are counselors who specialize in this field. Ask your parents to make an appointment for all of you to talk with someone who will assist in figuring out the best way to deal with your frustrations and how much information your parents can give you. They can get a referral from your pediatrician. Dear Annie: “In Turmoil in Kansas,” the 45-year-old gay man, could have been me 16 years ago. I lived alone in Michigan, but I had no job, no social life, no partner and only one friend -- and he lived far away. I was in the closet and didn’t know anything about PFLAG. I found that smoky, noisy and crowded bars were not for me. I was so scared to tell anyone I’m gay. I am now 46, have a great partner, live in Florida, joined the local PFLAG chapter, have two great jobs and am out to everyone, including my very accepting parents -- something I never expected. I never go to gay bars, although I have many gay pen pals. In two years, I’ll be moving to Boston to live with my partner, who is transferring jobs. Isn’t it great how life can be so wonderful after being depressed and lonely for so long? Please tell him not to give up hope. -- Sarasota, Fla.

Ethel Jane Cook (nee Nightingale) 1933 - 2013 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ethel Jane Cook on Saturday, September 28, 2013. She is survived by Wayne (Sherry) of Vancouver Island; Brenda (Larry) of Prince Albert, SK; Gary (Wendy) of Cranbrook; Lyle (Heather) of Preeceville, SK; Dale (Deb), Lorne (Lynn) and Bradley of Cranbrook; as well as sixteen grandchildren; twelve great grandchildren; one brother and four sisters. Ethel was predeceased by her husband Walter “Ken” Cook in 2012, her parents Alfred and Marjorie Nightingale, brothers Wilfred, Dennis and Larry Nightingale. Ethel was born on August 14, 1933 in Okla, Saskatchewan. She farmed with Ken at Hazel Dell until they moved to Cranbrook, BC in 1973. Ethel and Ken owned and operated gravel and logging trucks until retiring in 1998. Together they traveled throughout BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan enjoying pony chuckwagon racing, camping and visiting friends and family. Her greatest enjoyment was her family, cherishing her time with grandchildren and great grandchildren. A celebration of Ethel’s Life will be held on Friday, October 4 at 2:00 pm in the McPherson Funeral Home Chapel in Cranbrook. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Make-A-Wish Foundation #112, 2025 - West Broadway, Vancouver, BC, V6J 1Z6. Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service.
