NO, IT’S NOT WINTER JUST YET: Stewart Wilson snapped this portrait of a western painted turtle on a recent fine October day at Idlewild Park. The shelled one had been sunning itself on a log, but it slipped into the water when the photographer took out the camera. It resurfaced a few minutes later, as if to say, “Come in, the water’s warm!” Don’t mind if we do, Turtle!

Partnership seeks to make Cranbrook more youth friendly ARNE PETRYSHEN Townsman Staff

The city is part of a initiatie with Big Brothers Big Sisters to make Cranbrook more youth friendly place. Dana Osiowy, executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters, and Frankie Hols, youth liaison, gave council an update on their work so far with CBK Youth, and where they planned to go next. “We talk a lot about engagement,” Hols said. “It’s not only getting our youth engaged, but also that we as a community be engaged with our youth.” One of the ways they are help-

ing do those things is by encouraging communication and collaboration between youth service providers in the community. In August, they hosted the first youth service providers network opportunity, which had 25 people attend. “It was really well received,” she said. They are also hosting activities, such as a giant slip and slide in Idlewild Park in September for Grade 7-12 students. In total 28 kids came out and Hols said it was a ton of fun. They also put together a survey to find out how youth-friend-

ly Cranbrook is currently. “The survey will help us get strategic direction for the project,” she said. “We created the survey in two parts.” One part gets opinion from the youth in the community, the other of the adults. Both versions can be found at From here they will be compiling the results of the survey and finding key focus areas that they will implement through the youth advisory committee as well as the youth service providers network.

Chances high Hopley will re-offend if released, court hears S A LLY MACD ON AL D Townsman Staff

Randall Hopley has been rated as having a one-in-four chance of committing another sexual offence against young boys within the next 10 years. Forensic psychiatrist Dr. Emlene Murphy gave evidence Wednesday in the week-long dangerous offender hearing for Hopley, who has pleaded guilty to the abduction of three-year-

old Kienan Hebert from his bed in Sparwood in September 2011. Dr. Murphy, who has 30 years experience in the field, reviewed police and court documents related to Hopley, along with prior psychiatric and expert reports, before interviewing Hopley in North Fraser Pre-Trial Centre in October 2012.

Talking trash

The landfill near Cranbrook may soon be collecting garbage from the Elk Valley, under an agreement up for discussion at last week’s RDEK board meeting Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

Garbage from the Elk Valley may soon be disposed of in the landfill near Cranbrook, under a new agreement proposed by Regional District of East Kootenay directors. Until now, Elk Valley garbage has been transferred to a landfill in Pincher Creek, Alberta, at a cost of $63.35 per tonne. The Elk Valley generates about 9,000 tonnes of waste each year, which equates to about one 53-foot tractor trailer a day, five or six days a week, according to Board Chair Rob Gay. “The waste is residential and commercial — it’s the same as Central where there is no heavy industrial coming from the Elk Valley,” added Gay. Bringing that waste to the Central Landfill, located near Cranbrook, would reduce the landfill’s life span from 94 years to 71 years, meaning space would be used up in about 2084, according to the regional district’s environmental services department. To make up for that reduction in the lifespan, Gay proposed two measures. First, that the Elk Valley would be charged a “fair disposal fee” that would let residents of the Central subregion — Cranbrook, Kimberley, Jaffray, Wasa and nearby communities — have a tax break.

Second, part of the fee collected from the Elk Valley would go into a reserve fund to let the regional district explore “future diversionary initiatives” for the garbage. “That reserve fund would really allow us to look at a number of innovative ways to reduce burying as much garbage as we do,” explained Chair Gay. Cranbrook City Council held a special meeting so that board members Mayor Wayne Stetski and Councillor Bob Whetham could find out how council felt about the issue. “We passed a motion very similar to the one that has been proposed,” said Mayor Stetski. “That fund potentially could be used for everything from curbside recycling, composting, or potentially collecting that money to provide incentive to build an energy complex where we would burn garbage and create energy,” Mayor Stetski said. “This fund would accumulate and be used to benefit the Central subregion in a number of different ways.” Now Elk Valley directors will take the proposal to their own councils to decide whether to accept it or continue taking their trash to Alberta. In the process, all of the directors will come up with a fair fee per tonne for accepting the garbage at the Central landfill.

Cherry Creek Falls Park Included in Parks Plan Townsman Staff

Cherry Creek Falls Regional Park has been designated as an Electoral Area E Regional Park. The 35.8 acre parcel of land was originally part of a mineral claim. The claim was pur-

chased by the Meadowbrook Community Association in an effort to preserve the area. The RDEK has applied for tenure over the land in the vicinity of the Falls to make it part of our Regional Parks system.

It’s the second year Bellies to Babies has run the fundraiser, in collaboration with the United Way of Cranbrook and Kimberley. The Knights of Columbus 1406 took advantage of the offer. They purchased 10 boxes of the apples (25 pounds a box) at $25 a box, donating the fruit to the Cranbrook Food Bank.

Scam targets Shaw customers CAROLYN G R AN T Daily Bulletin

There are countless scams out there, and at the root of almost all of them is an attempt to get someone’s personal financial information. Kimberley senior Murray Dean reports that someone claiming to be from Shaw Communications contacted him via email to say that the Deans’ latest payment on their Shaw account had been declined by the bank. The email states: “We are unable to process your last payment with the information we have on file. Reason: Declined by Bank. Did you recently change your credit card, bank, address or phone? Sign in [in the email, this is a link] to update your billing information, otherwise your account will be deactivated. To reactivate your account, you will be required to pay a $15 reactivation fee.”

The email is signed “Shaw Support”. Dean did the right thing — he contacted Shaw himself by phone and was told there was nothing wrong with his account, it was up to date. “But it would be easy to fall for it,” Dean said. “The email looked like it was from Shaw. I just wanted to let people know about it.” This type of scam is called phishing, according to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre. The word phishing comes from the analogy

that Internet scammers are using email lures to ‘fish’ for passwords and financial data from the sea of Internet users. Phishing, also called “brand spoofing”, is the creation of email messages and web pages that are replicas of existing, legitimate sites and businesses. These web sites and emails are used to trick users into submitting personal, financial, or password data. These emails often ask for information such as credit card numbers, bank account information, social in-

surance numbers, and passwords that will be used to commit fraud. The goal of criminals using brand spoofing is to lead consumers to believe that a request for information is coming from a legitimate company. In reality it is a malicious attempt to collect customer information for the purpose of committing fraud.

City staff have taken a look at traffic calming measures for residential streets after complaints about speeding came to council. Engineering staff was asked to look into the cost of Electronic Vehicle Activated Traffic Calming Signs and found that they do not come cheap. On Monday, Oct. 7, CAO Wayne Staudt said they came back with an estimate of $10,000 if the reader is installed where the sign can be posted on a lamp standard pole or $14,000 if,

such as on the way down 2nd Street South, there are no lamp standards to attach to. The signs read vehicle speeds, and indicate when the vehicle is speeding with an LED message. It doesn’t display the actual vehicle speed. “The costs are quite significant,” Staudt noted. “Obviously these signs are not cheap. I think they are very effective.” He suggested that if council is interested in the signs, that it have a budget discussion to look more closely at the

costs. The other option that staff looked at was painted road signs. That was a much more economical option, with public works estimating each costing $200. Mayor Wayne Stetski noted that the request came through the Cranbrook in Motion committee which was looking for existing alternatives for slowing traffic down. “We can take this information back to them and see whether any of the committee members has any recommendations around moving forward,” Stetski

BBBS, city partner on behalf of youth Continued from page 1 Mayor Wayne Stetski said that youth issues have been a priority for himself and council in the past two years. He noted the large role Columbia Basin Trust plays, giving $25,000 a year for four

ters Cranbrook is doing a great job on the youth initiative. “I like your plan and where you’re going,” Scott said, but cautioned that some things like youth centres cost a lot of money. She hoped they could come up with creative solutions for youth engagement and activities. She said they could look at what kinds of activities a youth centre offers and find a more affordable way to do it. Osiowy said that she has worked in youth centres in the past, as well as on a youth centre network when she was with Columbia Basin Trust. “I’m very aware of the pitfalls of having a youth centre,” she said. “It can really be a black hole.” A few years ago she worked on asset maps of Cranbrook. “We got these beautiful maps and there were a million things that were actually happening in Cranbrook,” she said. “We realized there’s lots of stuff, but there are barriers to youth participating.” She said they are working on a sort of clearing house of activities to facilitate involvement in the activities we do have in Cranbrook.

Defense points out Hopley has had no sexual convictions since 1985 Continued from page 1 One test Dr. Murphy conducted on Hopley, called a Static 99, found that Hopley fits in a group that has a one-infive chance of reoffending in the next five years, and a one-in-four chance of reoffending in the next 10 years. “He is a high risk to the community at this point,” Dr. Murphy told the court. What’s more, she explained, research of sex offenders shows Hopley, 48, falls into several categories where reoffending is highest. He committed his first offence when he was a teen, his offences are against male children, some of whom were strangers to him, and he does not have an adult partner. Each of these circumstances places him in a group that has a high risk of reoffending. Crown prosecutor Lynal Doerksen asked Dr. Murphy what level of supervision Hopley would need in order to prevent him from reoffending if he was released from custody. “Given his risk of reoffending in a sexual way is high, he would need a very high level of supervision,” she said. “He would need very intense supervision with conditions that would curtail his freedom in a major way.” She suggested electronic monitoring, spot checks by a probation officer and a driving prohibition as some of the appropriate conditions. Dr. Murphy considered Hopley’s history of sexual offences against children, which started when he was 15. In 1985, when he was 19, Hopley was sent to a federal prison for the sexual assault of a five-year-old boy in Hosmer. Although Hopley was not convicted of a sexual offense in 2007, Dr. Murphy also considered a case that year in which Hopley was instead convicted of break and enter, because she said it related to his pattern of offending. In that case, Hopley admitted to attempting

Randall Hopley enters Cranbrook Court Monday, Oct. 7, to abduct a 10-year-old boy from his foster home in Sparwood. Hopley claimed the boy’s biological mother had offered him $2,800 to kidnap the child and return him to her. However, after Hopley broke into the foster home, the boy’s foster mother heard the child scream and Hopley fled. Although police found sexual paraphernalia when searching Hopley’s residence soon after, he denied that his

motivation for kidnapping the child was sexual. However, Dr. Murphy said that in the lack of any information backing up Hopley’s claim, “sexual motivation is suspected from a clinical perspective.” When Dr. Murphy discussed the abduction of Kienan Hebert with Hopley, he denied hurting the child physically or sexually. The prosecution has presented no evidence

that Hopley assaulted Kienan. Hopley told Dr. Murphy that he abducted Kienan to “send a message to police” but did not elaborate on what that message was. “He did not clarify how the message issue was connected to taking the boy,” Dr. Murphy said. “That was a puzzling conversation because it wasn’t very logical.” Dr. Murphy considered that there was a sexual component in the kidnapping of Kienan, even though there was no offense. “From the information I have, there was evidence of sexual paraphernalia in the cabin on this occasion,” Dr. Murphy said. “That would seem to imply some plan for sexual behaviour.” However, during c ro s s - e x a m i n a t i o n , Hopley’s defense counsel William Thorne challenged Dr. Murphy’s finding that Hopley’s motivation in the Hebert case was sexual, pointing out that in

statements to police Hopley said he was “protesting against the police, the courts and his lawyer” after the 2007 case. “It may be he wanted to prove a point or he may have wanted to commit a sexual assault or it could be mixed motivation,” Dr. Murphy responded. “But sexual motivation cannot be detached from this case.” Regardless, Thorne

added, there is a gap in Hopley’s offenses between 1985 and 2007. “For a relatively short period of time, he was engaged in activity for which he was convicted. There has been nothing after that except for the two abductions, would you agree?” Thorne asked. “That is a fairly lengthy period of time,” Dr. Murphy agreed. “How to explain that, I really do not have a

The recipe calls for a can of mushroom soup.” I gave her my can-opener repairman card. “Barry Coulter,” she said. “That name sounds familiar. Have we met before? Or is there something else you do, that I may have heard of you?” “I am a can-opener repairman, Ma’am,” I said. “That’s what I do. Now show me to the can-opener.” We went into the kitchen, and she showed me the can-opener. “So what seems to be the problem?” I said. “Well … it doesn’t open cans anymore — obviously. I was just going to throw it out and get a new one, but I was shocked at how expensive a new one is! Then I saw your ad.” “You did the right thing,” I said. “In this wintry economic climate, we have to make things last longer. All this planned obsolesence is no-oo-o good!” I examined the can opener. “What you got here,” I said, “is some feeder wheel gear slip-

page. I’’ll dopple the bearing tighter to the axle shaft, refocus your Manley sprocket, a quick sharpen of the cutting wheel and you’ll be good to go.” I hefted my box of specialized tools up onto the kitchen counter and set to work. “To tell you the truth,” she said, “I didn’t know there was such a thing as a can-opener repairman.” I took off my glasses and screwed the loupe eyepiece into my orbital socket. “It’s a growing industry. It’s part of that whole trades boom — you know, how we have too many sociologists, fine artists, web designers, journalists — but not enough plumbers, heavy equipment mechanics or pipeline welders? They’re really promoting trades, and getting

more people into trades. I though it was about time I took up a trade.” “And you …” “I chose can-opener repair. I like working with my hands. I tend to get hurt when I try welding. I’m an inveterate finger-licker, so plumbing’s not for me. And crawling under heavy equipment, getting all covered with oil? Forget it!” “Where does one go to learn can-opener repair?” “One goes to college. Where else?” “Is it a long course? A difficult course?” “It’s all right,” I said. “Couple more night classes and I can get my electric can-opener certification.” “It seems surprising to me, that you can make a living re-


pairing can-openers. Is there something else you do? Do you do some moonlighting on the side?” “Hey,” I said. “I may wear several job-hats, but I’m no Econo-bot, regardless of what people say.” “Pardon me, what does that mean?” I pointed at the window. “Hey, look at that! Oh, now it’s gone!” “What was it?” I stood away from the counter, brandishing the can opener. “All righty! Where’s that soup!” The newly repaired can-opener worked like a dream. I worked out my invoice and presented her with the bill. “Seventy-five dollars! Are you serious!” “Minimum one-hour labour,” I said. We shouted back and forth, for a bit, until she finally broke down and wrote me a cheque, just to get me out of the house. “That’s my only call of the day,” I said to myself as I walked to the van. “Guess I’ll go see how my order of fridge magnet ads is coming along.” For all your can-opener repair needs call (Editor’s Note: Phone number deleted for lack of space)

I am writing this letter in response to the article “A federal prison near Kimberley?” I worked for the Correctional Service of Canada as a Correctional Officer for almost eight years in the Fraser Valley and have recently moved back to Kimberley to raise my young family here. Years ago, I may have been an advocate for this proposal, but not now. I am glad I left the CSC life and I am not looking back. I love the Kootenay region for its pristine nature and we do not need the stigma of having a prison here. No, you will not see inmates sipping coffee at the local coffee shop, but something to consider is you would see an influx of inmates’ families move to the area to be close to their less than desirable boyfriends and husbands. In larger centers like Prince Albert, Abbotsford or Chilliwack you may not notice, but you would

most certainly notice in a small town like Kimberley with fewer than 7,000 people. Another thing to consider is that once the prison is built it would not be immediately staffed by local people. The Correctional Service of Canada is a Federal Government Agency. The positions would be first offered to Correctional staff from across Canada on a seniority basis before any new recruits would be trained to fill vacancies. This would do nothing for local families. The only immediate work would go to contractors in building the prison, and that’s only if local contractors are tendered the contracts from the federal government to build it. There are in fact eight federal institutions in the Fraser Valley and one in Victoria, not two in B.C. like the article suggests. We don’t need to model our society like the Americans where the correctional system is an “industry” and prisons are

built just to keep small-town America alive. The RDEK can use a little more ingenuity than that. I may be mistaken, but it is also my understanding that the CSC has been sitting on a plot of land outside of Kelowna for the past 20 years. If this is the case, and the interior of B.C needs a federal prison, let them build it there. A federal prison may provide a pay cheque from the government, but it would not produce anything of tangible quality. If we want to create local jobs, we need to create or develop something from within this area; something that would be tangible, of quality and would give back to the communities of the RDEK. We are living in an era of unlimited potential and the sky’s the limit with what we can do, we just need to use a little imagination. Trust me, we don’t need a prison here. Bryan Hunt Kimberley

Taking up the Charity Boxing Challenge TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Thrilla in Manilla has nothing on the upcoming boxing event that will pit two local businessmen against each other in the Brawl to Settle it All. Steve Mercandelli and Kenny Bridge are stepping into the ring in the headlining bout as part of a charity boxing event on Saturday, Nov. 2, at the Eagles Hall, to raise money for deserving individuals and families in the community. The brainchild of Tom White, a coach with the Cranbrook Eagles Boxing Club, the event will also feature four other bouts featuring local members of the business community. When White first cooked up the idea for the Charity Boxing Challenge, he put in a call to Mercandelli, who works at Cranbrook Dodge, to see if he’d be interested in taking part. Mercandelli, who has some boxing experience back when he trained with the British Army, signed on and White asked if there was anyone in the business community that he’d like to fight. “I said, right away, ‘Kenny Bridge’,” Mercandelli said. Five minutes later, White called back to say Bridge, the owner of

Bridge Interiors, was in. From there, the event blossomed to include other local men and women sponsored by various other local business in the community. Along with the bouts, the event will feature a live auction with items donated from various business, which include everything from memberships to the Eagles Boxing Club to a queen bed set to gift certificates to a local restaurant.

“It’s going to be a full night with four or five hours of fun, and every single dime is going back into the community, we’re not keeping anything—we’re donating every dollar.” Tom White “It’s going to be a full night with four or five hours of fun, and every single dime is going back into the community, we’re not keeping anything—we’re donating every dollar,” said White. “When we’re all done and everything’s counted up, we’re going to distribute the funds out to those in need.” White has his ath-

letes down at the Eagles Boxing Club twice a week to shape up and prepare for the physical demands of getting into the ring for a few rounds. “Training’s actually going really well,” said White. “I was surprised at how many of these guys are actually dedicated. The first name that comes to mind is Kenny Bridge. The guy is down here before boxing starts, he’s really taking it serious, and these guys—it’s not going to be a joke, they’re both going all out—which I was surprised, being that they know each other fairly well. “They both say their leaving nothing outside, they’re giving it all when they’re inside the ring.” Both of them, arguably the two headliners for the event, are eager to get down to business, brushing up on their showmanship during a recent training session. Mercandelli fired the first volley, saying the fight has been 13 years in the making. “I’m fighting a very big man,” Mercandelli said. “He’s got a big target in the centre there, called his stomach, so I think I’m going to focus on the stomach, quite frankly, and work low. “It’s either the stomach or the big mouth, I don’t know which one I’m going to go for.” Bridge responded,

Steve Merdandelli and Kenny Bridge get down to some Muhammad Ali-inspired trash talking inside the ring at the Cranbrook Eagles Boxing Club in advance of their charity match on Saturday, Nov. 2, at the Eagles Hall. noting that he’s got a few tricks up his sleeve that his opponent might not expect. “We got a couple things that Steve doesn’t know, and because this is going to be a onetime deal where if I get disqualified and I’m never allowed to box again—oh well,” Bridge said. “…He said he’s had 64 fights. I don’t think he’s had any more than 59, after watching him spar down here and stuff. Me having none, I’m not all that worried about it.” Other confirmed fights up on the card include a female match between Pamela Ryan and Brandi Archibald.

White looking for donation suggestions Tom White created the Charity Boxing Challenge with the intent of raising money to go towards deserving individuals and families that are struggling with financial hardship. But he needs help deciding where the funds should go. Anyone can anonymously submit their nominations of a particular individual or family to White via email. Also, if any businesses or organizations wish to contribute items towards the live auction, they can contact White for that as well. White can be reached at: Items up on the live auction block so far include: Queen Bed Set – Bridge Interiors Cranbrook Watch – Jewels on Ninth Cranbrook Dinner for two – Frank’s Steak & Schnitzel Haus Cranbrook Nascar Driver, Autographed Hats & Shirts – Freightliner of Cranbrook One year pass for boxing – Barry Shingar Trucking Cranbrook One year pass for boxing – All in the Family Lawn Care Cranbrook Three Hot Yoga Classes – One Love Hot Yoga Kimberley (new location opening in Cranbrook) 4 hr skid steer rental -Ray Kelly TomCat contracting Troy Adams will take on Ralph Martini, while Randy ‘Moose’ Rothwell will challenge Josh

Kapitaniuk. Jack Chisholm will also step into the ring against Chase Theilen, and

there could be some more additions to the card as it gets closer to fight night.

Referee Graham Waugh drops the puck to start the third period between the Kimberley Dynamiters and the Columbia Valley Rockies on Wednesday night at the Civic Centre.

Rockies crumble as Nitros earn 3-1 home win Tre vor Cr awley Sports Editor

After suffering their first loss of the season last weekend in Nelson, the Kimberley Dynamiters returned to their winning ways on Wednesday with a 3-1 victory over the visiting Columbia Valley Rockies. Decked out in their black and pink jerseys to mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Nitros suffocated the Rockies’ offence and put themselves back in the win column. The Nitros scored in the first frame and added another pair in the second period. The Rockies, in response, only put 8 shots on goal by the halfway mark of

the game and managed to sneak in a powerplay marker in the third period. Dynamiters goaltender Tyson Brouwer stopped 13 shots for the win, while Brody Nelson made 21 saves in a losing cause. “I thought we played a really solid defensive game,” said Nitro head coach Jerry Bancks. “We have been all year—I think we’re probably leading the league in goals against—and I would say probably shots against as well, so to keep them to 14 shots was quite a feat. “A hard game for the goalie to play, but I thought he did a great job. He stayed very

composed and did a really good job, considering there was not a lot of action.” Nitros captain Darren Martin said the team played well against a divisional rival, which are always important games. “We came out well prepared and our first period definitely took some wind out of their sails,” Martin said. Aaron Shubert kicked off the offence just after the halfway mark of the first period, collecting a loose puck in the slot and roofing it past Nelson. In the second period, defenceman Tristan Pagura doubled the lead by scoring his first KIJHL goal

with a slapshot from the point on the powerplay. Alex tripled it for the Nitros late in the frame, scooping up a rebound off a breakaway from teammate Dylan Sibbald, who had a few chances all alone on goal throughout the game. Ryan Lawson scored the lone goal for Columbia Valley, capitalizing on a rebound in front of Brouwer on a powerplay with 10 minutes remaining in the game. Tempers flared a bit near the end of the game, with Andrew Miller and Dustin Kostiuk dropping the gloves to have a go at each other.

The Rockies had one goal in six opportunities with the man-advantage, while Kimberley scored once in eight powerplay chances. “I though our powerplay was a little bit off, we had lots of chances, we just didn’t finish,” said Bancks. “It was a good win.” Kimberley climbs back up the standings ladder and sit on top of the Eddie Mountain division, one point ahead of the Creston Valley Thunder Cats with a game in hand. The Nitros head up to Invermere for a rematch with the Rockies on Friday, but will host the Golden Rockets on Saturday.

With a depleted defensive corps, the Kootenay Ice beat up on the Lethbridge Hurricanes with a 5-2 road win at the Enmax Centre on Wednesday night.

“We had a real good start. I think that was the key to us, for sure. We got off to a good start and I think we did a good job of keeping the puck in their end.” Ryan McGill

Ice captain Sam Reinhart led the way with two goals and an assist, while goaltender Mackenzie Skapski made 25 saves for the win. Kootenay’s offense seemed to click, as ‘Canes netminder Corbin Boes was pep-

pered with 41 shots while the Ice powerplay was able to capitalize twice. Zach McPhee, Levi Cable and Zach Zborosky also supplied the offence alongside Reinhart for the Ice, while Axel Blomqvist and Macoy Erkamps responded for the ‘Canes. “We had a real good start,” said Ice head coach Ryan McGill. “I think that was the key to us, for sure. We got off to a good start and I think we did a good job of keeping the puck in their end.” “I think we generated a powerplay on our second shift of the game, so I think it was a good start for us, and then we just kind of went from there.” McPhee and Cable kicked off the scoring in the latter half of the opening period as Kootenay rode a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes.

Cardinals surge past Pirates 6-1 to win NL division series R.B. Fallstrom Associated Press

ST. LOUIS - Nobody’s better than the St. Louis Cardinals when they can’t afford to lose. Adam Wainwright went all the way on the mound and St. Louis got two-run homers from David Freese and Matt Adams to beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-1 Wednesday night, advancing to the NL championship series for the third straight season. Wainwright scattered eight hits in his second dominant win of the division series, coming through for the Cardinals in a winner-take-all Game 5. St. Louis gets to stay at home to open the NLCS against the well-rested Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night. “I wanted it bad. It’s probably the most nervous I’ve ever been,” Wainwright said. “I don’t get a whole lot of nerves when I pitch. Before I pitched today, I was pretty nervous.” By ending Pittsburgh’s storybook sea-

son, the Cardinals improved to 8-1 when facing post-season elimination the past three years. They also won Game 5 of the NL division series in Washington last year - even though Wainwright got rocked - and at Philadelphia in 2011. Freese homered in the second inning off rookie Gerrit Cole, and Adams connected in the eighth against reliever Mark Melancon to make it 5-1. Pete Kozma added an RBI infield single, and Wainwright finished it off by striking out Pedro Alvarez with two on. “I’m just so fired up for this team and this city right now,” Wainwright said. “Cardinal fans were rockin’ today and I’m just fired up to be here.” Alvarez became the first player with an RBI in his first six post-season games on a fluke hit that caromed off first base in the seventh. But the Pirates, who ended a record streak of 20 consecutive losing sea-

sons this year, were held to one run in each of the final two games of their first playoff appearance since 1992. Despite their charming turnaround and a victory over Cincinnati in the NL wild-card game, the Pirates haven’t won a post-season series since the 1979 World Series. The 23-year-old Cole beat the Cardinals with an impressive effort in Game 2. They got to him early this time even though his fastball hit

100 mph in the first inning against Matt Holliday. Freese made the kid pay for a full-count walk to Jon Jay with two outs in the second, lining a 1-2 pitch into the visitors’ bullpen in left. The Pirates had the bullpen up in the fourth after Yadier Molina’s infield hit and a throwing error put runners on second and third. Cole gave up just three hits over five innings, but was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the sixth.

Freese struggled this season to overcome a back injury in spring training and had nine homers and 60 RBIs. But just like teammate Carlos Beltran, he’s an October star with seven homers, 29 RBIs and a .325 average in 36 career post-season games. Adams’ power hitting helped the Cardinals overcame a midfoot sprain to cleanup man Allen Craig in early September and he hammered a first-pitch fastball from Melancon

well over the right-field wall for his first RBIs of the series. The Pirates scratched out their lone run on two infield hits and the single by Alvarez that looked to be a harmless inning-ending groundout before it hit the bag. Freese was a hometown hero in 2011, both the NLCS and World Series MVP. He singlehandedly got the Cardinals to Game 7 of that World Series with a two-run triple with two outs and two strikes in

the ninth and then ended Game 6 with a leadoff homer in the 11th. “He’s a stud. He’s a big-time player at bigtime moments,” Wainwright said. “And that’s what we expect of him and that’s what he continues to deliver.” NOTES: Lou Brock, clad in a red sport coat worn by all the Cardinals’ Hall of Famers, bounced the ceremonial first pitch, with pitcher Joe Kelly making a nice scoop.

Reinhart leads Kootenay to 5-2 win over ‘Canes Continued from page 9 Blomqvist answered back for Lethbridge in the second frae, but Reinhart restored the two-goal lead a few minutes later. Zborosky and Reinhart drew blood on a pair of powerplay goals in the final frame, while Erkamps got his marker with the man-advantage. “Lethbridge did a real good job of killing off some penalties

in the first two periods, and then I thought our powerplay really had a good killer instinct in the third period,” said McGill. Rookie Ice defenceman Troy Murray also notched his first career WHL points with a pair of assists to McPhee and Reinhart. The D-corps is short staffed as Tanner Faith (indefinite— upper body) and Landon Peel

(day-to-day—lower body) are out of the lineup, however, Jeff Hubic moved down to the back end to provide six skaters on the blue line. Those two injuries means everyone has had to handle more minutes, said McGill. “Obviously we’re going to have to rely on the goaltender here a little bit, but at the same time, it’s an opportunity for some guys to step up and just be real simple players,” said

McGill. With the win, Kootenay climbs up the Eastern Conference ladder into fifth place, one point behind the Red Deer Rebels, and one point ahead of a three-way logjam between Brandon, Calgary and Moose Jaw.

‘PREVENT KITCHEN FIRES’ – FIRE PREVENTION WEEK (OCTOBER 6 – 12, 2013) Cranbrook Fire & Emergency Services is reminding residents to ‘Prevent Kitchen Fires.’

ANIMAL CONTROL BYLAW – NUMBER OF PETS Under this bylaw, no person shall keep or harbor an accumulation of six (6) or more pets, and shall include no more than three (3) dogs, three (3) cats or combination thereof within the combined number of pets and for certainty shall include no more than one (1) vicious dog within the aforementioned number of pets. Visit our website and click on ‘Bylaws’ for more on all of our City bylaws..

According to research, cooking is the leading cause of home fires. Two of every five home fires begin in the kitchen—more than any other place in the home. Cooking fires are also the leading cause of home firerelated injuries. Among the safety tips that firefighters will be emphasizing during Fire Prevention Week include: • Stay in the kitchen when you are frying, grilling, broiling, or boiling food. • If you must leave the room, even for a short period of time, turn off the stove. • When you are simmering, baking, or roasting food, check it regularly, stay in the home, and use a timer to remind you. • If you have young children, use the stove’s back burners whenever possible. Keep children and pets at least three feet away from the stove. • When you cook, wear clothing with tight-fitting sleeves. • Keep potholders, oven mitts, wooden utensils, paper and plastic bags, towels, and anything else that can burn, away from your stovetop. • Clean up food and grease from burners and stovetops.

For more information about fire prevention and fire safety, contact Cranbrook Fire & Emergency Services at 250-426-2325.

Bugaboo Adventure I

Jim Barber

was awake before the 6 a.m. alarm call, excited for what the next two and a half days would bring. When my feet hit the floor, I was immediately in action; the shower, then onto checking my suitcase and gear — overpacked again. A goodbye to Julie and Cali, our dog, and I was in the car and headed for Radium, where I would meet my friend, Dave Butler, from Canadian Mountain Holidays. A quick coffee and chat and we two were on the road again, headed for the CMH helipad at Spillimacheen. Dave and I are both amateur/ hobby photographers, and when he told me that he and his team from CMH had collaborated with Canadian Geographic Magazine and professional photographer Neil Ever Osborne to put together a photography workshop in the Bugaboos, there was no holding me back. At 9:40 a.m., a Bell 412 helicopter swooped in under the cloud, an experienced pilot at its helm. My excitement built. I love riding in a helicopter. Off to the Bugaboo Lodge to get settled and meet the rest of the crew, whose camera shutters wouldn’t stop clicking for the next two and a half days. I knew the Bugaboos were beautiful, not only by reputation. Years ago, I had driven into an area beyond the lodge to visit a client. That was the first time I stood in awe, viewing the glacier and spire that adorn the many advertisements for this area of the Purcell Mountain Range. For two and a half days, my soul was drenched in Mother Nature’s glory as I witnessed and photographed her in her many moods and majesty. Dave, myself and the 14 other amateur shutterbugs, along with a group of heli-hikers, were treated like family by the professional staff at CMH. My name was not forgotten once by any member of the staff, the

Everything from hiking boots, jackets, rain pants, back packs, and bag lunches had been thought of. Whisked off to mountain tops by helicopter first thing in the morning, we would not see the lodge until late in the afternoon, when I really came to appreciate a mug of Guinness. Exhausted from a day of hiking and shooting, I poured myself into bed each evening, a smile on my face as I remembered the

sight of the glaciers that surrounded me throughout my day. Like a lot of us, I take for granted the area in which we live, sometimes forgetting that you don’t have to go far beyond our local borders to experience true adventure. Heli-hiking in the Bugaboos provided me with an adventure that included experienced mountain guides, wonderful staff, great food, perfect accommodations and a few days that brought great joy to my soul.

Living well

Nutrition on the go I Stephanie Bury & Christine Adair

n today’s fast paced world, a lack of time can feel like a barrier to healthy eating. A busy lifestyle doesn’t mean that nutrition has to fall to the wayside. Here are a few savvy strategies for making wholesome meals on the go that will help you save time while meeting your nutritional goals. Write a shopping list for the upcoming week to avoid multiple trips to the grocery store. Group items in your grocery list to reflect the store layout such as keeping all produce items together. Consider shopping in the evening when grocery stores tend to be less busy. Frozen vegetables, bagged salads, and whole roasted chickens can be healthy time-savers. At home, try preparing enough pasta to use in two different dishes. For example, pasta and meat sauce for supper and pasta, fresh cut vegetables, nuts and dressing for the following day’s lunch. Share responsibility for cooking and grocery shopping with family members, friends, or roommates. Eating a nutritious breakfast will give you the energy you need to kick-start your day. Here are a few morning time savers. Try pre-portioning yogurt, oatmeal or other morning favorites in readyto-go containers the night before. Prepare a big batch of granola or muffins over the weekend for a handy morning breakfast throughout the week. Lay out your coffee mug, cereal bowl, and cutlery on the table the night before to speed up your morning routine. Keep smart snacks like nuts, dried fruit, crackers, nut butters, or any other favorite healthy snacks in your bag or desk to make sure you always have an energy booster. Try protein-rich foods that pack a punch for lunch such as hummus, hard-boiled eggs, cheese cubes, tuna salad, diced chicken or ham. Keep the fridge stocked with plenty of grab-and-go veggies like sliced cucumbers, bell peppers, and carrot sticks for snacking. The best way to balance a healthy diet with a busy schedule is to keep it simple! Focus on the time-saving strategies that will work best for your life and make them part of your daily routine. Over time, small changes will make a big impact on your health. Remember to plan regular meals, stay hydrated, snack smart, and you’ll be well on your way to meeting your nutritional goals.

The theme of this year’s conference was “A Canada that Works and Plays”. The Conference included several excellent speakers: Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada; Douglas Porter, Chief Economist, BMO Financial Group; David Goldstein, President & CEO, Tourism Industry Association of Canada; Honourable Christy Clark, Premier of British Columbia; and Mark Brand, Social Entrepreneur and Restaurateur, Save On Meats, Downtown Eastside Vancouver. The main focus of the conference presentations was on tackling two key barriers to Canadian competitiveness: Canada’s skills shortage and its uncompetitive travel and tourism strategies. The gap between the skills of the unemployed and the requirements of current job openings is a leading barrier to competitiveness for many Canadian businesses. One of the reasons for this may be because educators are not fully aware of employers’ needs. Chambers of commerce have an important role to play in connecting educators and employers so that schools, colleges, technical institutes and universities can properly advise students where the jobs

are and what skills they’ll need to succeed. The Canadian Chamber created a competition to highlight the initiatives that local chambers are undertaking to address this issue in their communities. Of great interest were the presentations by the three finalists in the competition: the Regina & District Chamber of Commerce, the Mississauga Board of Trade and the Surrey Board of Trade. Congratulations to the Surrey Board of Trade, whose “HR Solutions for Immigrant Talent Initiative” developed in partnership with Douglas College was selected as the winner. The travel and tourism sector is one of Canada’s largest generators of GDP, contributing close to $80 billion to the economy annually and accounting for more than 600,000 jobs. Visitors to Canada spend more than $15 billion annually. So important is the sector that most municipalities and provinces have tourism marketing organizations, including many chambers of commerce. However, Canada is experiencing a serious and abrupt decline in the sector and has dropped from the 7th largest tourism destination in the world in terms of total foreign visitors to 18th. Can-

ada is the only G8 country to reduce investment in marketing while the US has doubled their investment. Also of note is Canada ranks 1st or 2nd as a preferred destination, but is 16th in terms of arrivals. Other important issues are our Visa process, border facilitation and “club sandwich” of fees, taxes and levies. Conference presentations focused on how the chamber network can influence the various levels of governments in increasing Canadian tourism marketing to levels competitive with our travel rivals. A key component of the AGM was the policy resolutions debate.

Grizzly shot near Mt. Fernie Provincial Park Tamar a Hynd Fernie Free Press

The Conservation Officer Service (COS) have asked owners and land managers to close the trails temporarily on the west side of Mount Fernie Provincial Park (MFPP) and part of the F.A.R. ski hill area accessing the Lizard Creek (Gorby Creek trail network) after a sow grizzly bear was shot and injured by a hiker on Wednesday, Oct. 2. Two adults were hiking on the Galloway trail near Gorby trail when they came across a sow grizzly bear with two 2-year old cubs that were feeding on a moose carcass. Initially the sow came towards the hikers and diverted into the bushes with her two cubs. The sow came out

from the bushes without the cubs and came at the hikers. The male hiker had a high-powered rifle and discharged one shot at the sow that was 10 to 15 feet away. When the shot hit the sow, she went into the grass by the trail allowing the hikers to depart the area. The hikers notified COS as soon as they got out of the area by mid afternoon. The hiker had the appropriate license for the firearm. COS initiated an investigation of the area in the evening of Oct. 2 until it became dark. COS returned to the area on Thursday, Oct. 3 looking for the bear. COS notified Island Lake Lodge, Fernie Alpine Resort and B.C. Parks requesting they

jured sow with cubs and a food source at a crucial time of year is high risk situation,” said COS Joe Caravetta. “Our hearing ability was compromised because of the creek noise and a bear would not be able to smell us as the wind was coming towards us.”

The area is closed for approximately 10 days to give scavengers time to eat the moose carcass. “There are two possibilities with the sow grizzly,” said COS Joe Caravetta “The bear perished in the bushes and we hope the cubs

BC Hydro has formally applied to the B.C. Utilities Commission for approval of extra fees for people who refuse to use the utility’s wireless electricity meters. BC Hydro’s application details costs expected for staff, vehicles and equipment for manual collection of meter readings, and adjusting the smart grid software and hardware to compensate for non-transmitting meters. It also estimates the cost of extra checks for electricity theft in areas

where mechanical meters remain. Portable “check meters” are to be deployed to find unexplained power losses in those sections of the grid. “These check meters are $2,000 per unit, and it is anticipated that an additional 200 to 500 units will be required,” the application states. The 130-page application seeks BCUC approval to impose fees announced by BC Hydro in September. It confirms that people who keep their old mechanical meter are to be charged $35 a month, while those who choose

a wireless meter with the radio transmitter disabled will be charged a $100 setup fee an $20 a month for manual collection of readings, starting April 1. The BCUC could reduce the fees if it finds them to be excessive, or increase them if that is justified. The $35 per month fee will be charged to customers with mechanical meters starting Dec. 1, and will be adjusted later if the BCUC changes the fee. A cabinet order issued by Energy Minister Bill Bennett in September instructs the BCUC to approve fees that

NEWS Body of mushroom picker found days after his friend walked out of woods C anadian Press

TERRACE, B.C. — Search and rescue workers near Terrace, B.C., have found the body of Devlin Sabo, just days after the friend he was lost with was found alive. Sabo and Ike Murray went mushroom picking along the

Skeena River Sept. 22 but failed to meet up with another man at their boat at a designated time. Police now know the two men became lost on the first day of their ordeal and hunkered down in an area that had been left out of the massive search zone that crews scoured

for seven days. The men decided after a week to start hiking out, and Sabo lost the strength to continue. Police say Murray stayed with his friend until he died and then hiked for another two days, finding the railroad tracks

where he was discovered by CN maintenance workers. Both the coroner and the Terrace police forensic unit attended the site where Sabo’s body was located, and the matter has been turned over to the coroner.

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: Male rape is a subject that is seldom mentioned. A close and dear male friend (in his late 40s) was severely raped twice. He was kidnapped from his residence, drugged, sodomized and left naked on the first occasion, and then his residence was broken into, and he was tied up and raped a second time. The general public may think this is rare and unusual. Not as much as you’d believe. After the attacks, my friend was examined in a hospital, and a rape kit was done. He then began attending support groups sponsored by different church organizations. He was surprised to learn that hundreds of other men have undergone similar experiences. My friend later saw one of the perpetrators shopping in a well-known store and immediately called his local investigating officer. The officer told him, “He has the right to shop in that store just as you do.” The local authorities have no sympathy for male rape. The FBI has a division to cover violent crimes, but they mainly focus on female rape. Somehow, male rape is an untouchable subject. I am writing you to ask that you refer victims of such crimes to a protection agency that will go to bat for them. Will you publish this letter to generate responses for other victims? This sort of crime needs to be explored, publicized, exposed by news agencies and brought to the attention of someone who cares. -- California Dear California: It is estimated that 10 percent of all sexual assault victims are male. And while that is a lower number than for women, it is still considerable, and the victims should receive the same respect from the authorities. All rape victims, male or female, can find support through RAINN ( or by calling their hotline at 1-800-656-HOPE ( For advocacy in bringing this subject to the attention of the public, please contact Dear Annie: I have been hurt many times by men in my life. I am now ready to find one good man to love forever. I’ve been looking online, and a man on one site caught my attention with his looks and his profile. The problem is, he doesn’t seem to be checking his emails. Do you know how I could find him? I listed what little information I had on Craigslist, hoping someone would recognize him, but no luck. This might be my lost love. Do you have any suggestions for finding him? -- Betty Dear Betty: It is quite possible this man isn’t responding to your emails because he is not interested. You are dangerously close to being a stalker. Please stop searching for this particular guy -- or any “lost love,” which is too great an expectation to place on someone. Consider other men who might have more potential if you back off and give them time to get to know you. Dear Annie: I had to weigh in on the letter from “Joe Not-So-Cool,” who asked whether he should travel in Europe for a while or be a “hardworking loser in a loser job.” That phrase told me that what might be necessary for Joe to achieve his desired goals is an attitude adjustment. The millions of low paying and less than glamorous jobs being done by Americans throughout the country are not “loser jobs.” They are an integral part of our economy and are being done by honest, hardworking people to the best of their ability. There is dignity in this, period. If Joe took one of these entry-level “loser jobs” in his field, he might eventually achieve his dream. This is what happened with me. I started on the lowest rung possible in my field, and now I have a position I could only dream about. I am set up perfectly in my career because I worked hard and took pride in the job I was doing. -- Been There in Hawaii Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

KOOPMANS, GOSSE (GEORGE) 1922 â&#x20AC;&#x201C;2013 George Koopmans died Friday, October 4, 2013 in Cranbrook. George was born into a large family in Garyp, a small town in the province of Fryslan in the Netherlands. He loved ice skating and participated in the prestigious Alvestedetocht, or Eleven Cities Tour, a 200-kilometer skating race.

Though he disliked school, George greatly admired academic achievement, and at 17, he began his pursuit of Hilda Wobma, the smartest girl in town. According to George, it was simply a bonus that she also had the best legs. George and Hilda had an eventful courtship, much of it conducted during Germanyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s occupation of Holland in World War II. They married in 1947. Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dearest dream was to farm. In 1949, his sights turned to Canada, and with 50 borrowed dollars, he, pregnant Hilda and 11-month-old Bill set out for a new life. After a wretched voyage plagued by storms and seasickness, the young family arrived in Halifax in the middle of a harsh Canadian winter. They settled in Wycliffe. A born farmer, George had a reverence for agriculture, and his children quickly learned to say â&#x20AC;&#x153;soilâ&#x20AC;? rather than â&#x20AC;&#x153;dirt,â&#x20AC;? which had a negative connotation to Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ears. George developed a talent for coaxing vibrant crops, flowers and vegetables from the poorest soil. He enjoyed a wide variety of fresh garden vegetables, though he drew the line at broccoli.

Ph: 250.426.6006 Fx: 250.426.6005 2104D 2nd Street S. Cranbrook, BC theďŹ&#x201A;

George owned a dairy farm in Fort Steele and later purchased a farm in Wasa where he raised cattle. His happiest days were those spent haying on his tractor.

Eternally Remember Your Loved One

Following his retirement from farming, George worked at Crestbrook Forest Industries as a personnel assistant for 17 years. He was a charter member of the Wasa Lions Club. George loved Hildaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cooking, pickled herring, salty black licorice, potatoes from his garden, Simmental cattle, John Deere tractors, diesel engines, and a good dry martini. He resumed oil painting in his later years. George disliked pretentiousness, rudeness and those who treated the elderly like â&#x20AC;&#x153;third-class citizens.â&#x20AC;? He believed in plain speech, and stories of his more interesting encounters invariably ended with a shrug and the phrase, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It had to be said.â&#x20AC;? He distrusted potluck dinners, leftovers and pasta in all forms. He viewed casseroles as a sneaky way to get him to eat ingredients of insufficient quality to stand on their own. Though he lived a simple life, George felt that his family made him the wealthiest man on earth. His proudest achievement was his 66 years of marriage to the smartest girl in Garyp. George believed he had the most accomplished children and grandchildren in the world, and he was proud to share that information. Credit for his talented offspring went to Hilda and his own good sense in winning her hand. George is survived by his wife Hilda and five children Bill Koopmans (Judy), Hilda Muir (Bob), Pat Hall (Dave), Don Koopmans (Debbie) and Shannon Rodgers (Pat); nine grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

3 years after doctor-assisted death, B.C. court set to rule C anadian Press

VANCOUVER — The B.C. Court of Appeal is set to rule on Canada’s ban on doctor-assisted suicide, weighing in on a contentious legal case that is expected to end up at the Supreme Court of Canada. The case stems from a B.C. Supreme Court decision last year that struck down the ban and ruled the law violated the charter rights of sick and dying people by

preventing them from ending their lives. The federal government appealed, arguing allowing physician-assisted suicide would demean the value of life and put vulnerable people at risk of abuse. Lee Carter, whose mother Kay travelled to Switzerland to seek physician-assisted suicide in 2010, says she hopes the court will affirm the rights of seriously ill Canadians to choose how

they want to die. Carter says her mother was forced to keep her plan secret because of the law, but would be thrilled to know her story has helped propel the public debate. Legal experts expect this week’s decision will be appealed to the Supreme Court of Canada, which last considered the issue in 1993 in a case involving Victoria resident Sue Rodriguez.

Mulcair says NDP losses in N.S., B.C. are lessons for federal party C anadian Press

OTTAWA — The crushing defeat of Nova Scotia’s NDP government has dealt a blow to federal NDP Leader Tom Mulcair just as Parliament is poised to resume. Mulcair likes to point to the success of provincial New Democrat governments to bolster his argument that the NDP can do the same federally. But that’s a harder case to make after the

Thomas Mulcair NDP’s drubbing in Nova Scotia on Tuesday, which followed another disappointing loss in

British Columbia last May. Mulcair says there are lessons to be learned from both defeats on everything from organizing on a riding-by-riding basis to maintaining a consistent message. He doubts the Liberal victory in Nova Scotia had anything to do with federal Grit Leader Justin Trudeau. Trudeau was the only federal leader to campaign in the province’s election.

New study calculates years when temperatures go off charts for cities Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Scientists have figured out when temperatures could really go off the charts from global warming. And for dozens of cities it is only about a generation away. For Kingston, Jamaica, it’s 2023. Singapore

in 2028. Mexico City in 2031. Cairo in 2036. Phoenix and Honolulu in 2043. Researchers at the University of Hawaii came up with the dates after looking at 150 years of record-keeping. Then they calculated when cities and ecosystem across the world

would regularly experience never-before-seen hotter environments. For example, in 2005, the world had it its hottest year on record. But the study in the journal Nature says that by the year 2047 every year will likely be warmer than that record-setting scorcher.

Passenger lands plane at English airport after pilot becomes incapacitated Associated Press

LONDON — When the pilot of his small plane collapsed in the cockpit, passenger John Wildey took the controls of the Cessna 172 over England, and suddenly began his first experience of landing — with some help from instructors on the ground. “I hadn’t a clue what to do to get down,’’ the 77-year-old Wildey told the BBC on Wednesday. “I’ve never flown a plane before.’’ Officials at Humber-

side Airport in northwest England put emergency plans into place and flight instructors were called in to help Wildey after the mayday call went out Tuesday evening. Soon after he landed, his friend the pilot, the only other person aboard the aircraft, died. Wildey said he began to veer off the runway as he was attempting to reach the brakes and could see a wall rapidly aEmergency services were waiting when the

plane touched down, after a few bumps. Rob Murray, one of the flight instructors, said he was glad to have helped and that Wildey did a “remarkable job,’’ given he had never flown a plane before. He said the atmosphere in the control tower was tense and there were handshakes but no cheers when the plane touched down. Police said an inquest will be carried out to establish what caused the pilot’s death.

Journey to the land of fire and ice I

Mountain City Travel’s Diane Manson explains why Iceland is the next popular destination

celand is an up-andcoming hotspot for adventurous travellers. It boasts broad horizons and unique landscapes and is home to a mere 320,000 happy people. Reykjavik, the capital city of Iceland, is a great jumping-off point. Brimming with fashionista charm, Reykjavik is dotted with boutiques, cafés and colourful twotone houses. In recent years, Reykjavik has emerged as a hip alternative to major European powerhouses, such as Paris and Rome. Its compact size makes it an ideal walking city. A 90-minute guided tour through Reykjavik is a perfect introduction to the city. You’ll hear great storytelling and an insider’s look into Reykjavik’s past, present and future. Visiting Laugardaslaug Thermal Pools is a great example of why

swimming is a national sport in Iceland, despite the country’s proximity to the Arctic Circle. Considered the city’s largest geothermal pool, the complex houses a 50metre outdoor pool, two waterslides, numerous “hot pots” (jacuzzis), an outdoor children’s pool, a thermal steam bath, indoor gym and a minigolf course. In the interior of the island, the Highlands of Iceland showcase geysers, enormous glaciers, steaming mud pools and gorgeous waterfalls. Iceland is home to Europe’s largest national park, Vatnajokull, offering everything from heli-skiing and hiking in the mountains of the Troll Peninsula and rock climbing in the Hvalfjorour fjord to sailing between icebergs in Jokulsarlon. Pingvallavatn Lake, in southwestern Iceland, boasts one of the top three places in the


Iceland’s Blue Lagoon is a geothermal pool in the middle of a lava field and a popular tourist hotspot. world for SCUBA and snorkelling. This is one of the only underwater places in the world

where you’ll see rifts; where two tectonic plates meet, or pull apart from each other.

If you’d rather keep your feet on the ground and prefer a more tranquil vacation, Iceland is

home to many prestigious golf courses and spas: one being the Blue Lagoon, a geothermal

spa in the middle of a lava field, filled with milky blue water. The midnight sun in June is a major mustsee if you are visiting this time of year, with the sun hardly setting at 11 p.m., and coming back up at 2 a.m. If you’re touring in December, there are 20 hours of darkness. Don’t be alarmed – this country is well lit by awe-inspiring yellow, green, blue and pink Northern Lights. Getting to Iceland has never been easier. Beginning May 2014, Iceland Air will operate nonstop from Vancouver to Reykjavik. A short 7-hour flight, a nap, and you can hit the ground running.   For your next hot (and/or cool) vacation, contact an expert at Mountain City Travel, toll free 1-877-427-2233 or 250-427-2233.
