Tembec passes the baton to Teck

Three huge properties in the Elk Valley have passed between the hands of two of the East Kootenay’s biggest companies SALLY MACDONALD Townsman Staff

Teck has purchased more than 7,000 hectares of land in the Elk Valley from Tembec, purely for conservation purposes. The two businesses – one, the East Kootenay’s largest employer, and the other, formerly one of the East Kootenay’s largest employers – announced the $19 million sale late Thursday, October 17. Within the next two months, three parcels of land will be transferred to Teck’s ownership. The Grave Prairie property is 3,059 hectares in size, located 7.5 kilometres northeast of Sparwood, and, according to environmental group Wildsight, is an important wintering area for elk. The Alexander Creek parcel, 3,098 hectares in size, is 10 kilometres east of Sparwood, on the north side of Highway 3 next to the Alberta border. The property allows wide-ranging wildlife such as grizzly bear and lynx to move between Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park into the Rocky Mountains. Finally, Teck purchased 992 hectares known as the Flathead Townsite, in the Upper Flathead Region, 28 kilometres southeast of Sparwood. “These lands are not amenable to mining,” said Nic Milligan, Teck’s manager of community and aboriginal affairs. “They were purchased in order to work in cooperation with First Nations, communities and other stakeholders to ensure they are used to protect key wildlife and fish habitat in the Elk Valley and Flathead River Valley now and for the future.” The sale has been applauded by conservation groups in B.C., Alberta and Montana who are working to protect the Flathead Valley.

Two bucks go at it in Townsite last week, with a third either refereeing or waiting to join in.

Use caution as rut begins C AROLYN GR ANT editor@dailybulletin.ca

As the fall advances into November, bucks of both the mule and white-tail variety will begin to enter the rut. In the weeks leading up to the rut (into November and December) bucks increase their displays of dominance and indirect threats. A dominant buck typically circles a rival with deliberate steps; back arched, head low and tail flicking.

Bucks can also display dominance by violently thrashing the bushes with their antlers. Bucks will engage each other in a show of dominance, and while it can be fascinating to watch, the message from the Kimberley Urban Deer Committee is, do it from a distance. “The general message is, stay away from bucks,” says Kimberley Urban Deer Committee Chair Gary Glinz. “They are wild, you never know if

they will take a run at you. Leave a wide berth when you see a buck following a doe.” Glinz says that as bucks enter the rut, their hormones are raging and they are far more focused on breeding than anything else. Staying away from them is just common sense. Often, Glinz says, larger bucks will enter town during the rut after staying away for most of the year. These bucks will leave again after the rut,

and you can ensure that they stay away be managing attractants. A particular attractant right now are mountain ash berries, something people may overlook when making sure apples and plums are picked. Bucks are burning energy during the rut and need to replenish it, with mountain ash berries being a good source. To report an incident to the Conservation Officer Service, please call 1-877-952-7277.

Teck purchases conservation land

Diane Pancel played the songs of Streisand on Thanksgiving weekend.

The Kootenay Performing Arts Company hits homerun with Streisand Concert FOR THE BULLETIN

The Kootenay Performing Arts Company has again delivered on its promise to produce and present high caliber productions starring world class artists. In only a short time audiences have enjoyed two presentations under this newly revamped company and been very vocal in sharing just how integral, important and vital it is to the artistic landscape of the region, and more specifically, the overall cultural fabric that makes Kimberley so appealing to so many. This was proven with the first presentation of Grammy winning violin virtuoso Pablo Diemecke in late September, and now once again it was

heightened with Los Angeles based international recording artist Diane Pancel this past Thanksgiving weekend. Her elegance, graciousness, beauty and professionalism were evident the moment she stepped out on stage. Montreal born pianist Yanik Giroux made quite the impression with audiences, not only through his musical talents, but with his quick wit and friendliness with patrons both on and off stage. Both artists were inviting and engaging, and played off of each other extremely well. It was great to see Friday evening’s concert at a near sellout. Saturday night’s show was also well received by the public. Patrons were enthusiastic and excited to be at the theatre and be part of what is being hailed as a most enjoyable concert. The standing ovation and encore only heightened that. From the subtle and warm stage décor to the rich colors of Ray Gareau’s lighting, all the way through to the incredible and powerful vocal performance of Diane Pancel was perfectly suited for the intimate Centre 64 Theatre. Dressed in red silk, Ms. Pancel had the audience captivated right from the moment she started singing. She kept everyone glued from beginning to end with her sultry smooth voice. Her full bodied tone in “Evergreen” was like being wrapped up in a warm blanket on an autumn

night to the upbeat “Second Hand Rose” which was brassy, playful and just plain fun. Her rendition of “Papa, Can You Hear Me?” from the classic movie “Yentl”, was both haunting and moving. With only a darkened stage and a single lit candle, Ms. Pancel took the audience on an emotional journey leaving many wanting more. In fact at the end of the song the room stayed eerily quiet before the audience erupted into applause. It was spellbinding. After the concert the mother of one young girl of about 8 said “My daughter was nearly in tears it was so beautiful”. At the end of the show patrons were treated to a meet and greet reception allowing each the chance to speak with both special guests artists. All in all audiences were dazzled with all the classics one would hope to hear in a Streisand concert. If this production is any indication of the caliber of artistry and production value we can expect going forward than let’s get behind it this company and show our support. If seeing patrons line up to purchase tickets to the next event in the Legends Concert Series already is an indication residents are eager for more than we have much to look forward too. Patrons certainly got their monies worth with this concert. Well done to everyone involved. Bravo!

From Front Page 1 “We’re very excited that Teck has made a significant investment to purchase and work towards conserving this important wildlife and fish habitat,” said John Bergenske, Wildsight’s executive director. In 2010, the B.C. government and Canadian government signed an agreement with the state of Montana and the United States government to protect the Flathead, which is adjacent to the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, a designated World Heritage Site. In November 2011, the B.C. government passed the Flathead Watershed Conservation Act, which bans mining, oil and gas activity in the Flathead. Teck said it is invested in maintaining the East Kootenay’s environmental values. “Our employees live and work in the Kootenays and they want to ensure its vibrant economy and natural splendour is maintained for future generations,” said Milligan. “We strongly believe that by working in partnership it is possible to have both world-class mining and a world-class environment.” In coming months, Teck will discuss how the properties should be managed with First Nations and other Elk Valley stakeholders. This is the second sale of East Kootenay lands that Tembec has announced in the past month. On September 30, it revealed the $4.2 million sale of 1,875 hectares west of St. Mary Lake to Nanaimo-based company Jemi Holdings Ltd. Tembec hopes to sell off 64,500 hectares of land in the East Kootenay, with the goal of making $75 million by the end of 2014. The remaining properties are in the St. Mary Valley, near Canal Flats, and south of Cranbrook. Tembec has had a presence in

This March, Tembec sold its Skookumchuck pulp mill to Vancouver-based 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 also announced this week that its Cranbrook-based vice president of

the Forest Products Group, Dennis Rounsville, is retiring this year. Rounsville began his career with Crestbrook and worked for Tembec in Cranbrook until it sold its East Kootenay mills, then relocating to the company’s headquarters in Quebec. “Dennis Rounsville has been a valuable member of our executive leadership team, and a significant contributor to Tembec and the forest products industry through his long career, and we wish him a fruitful and happy retirement,” said Tembec’s President and CEO James Lopez.

Economic development

It was with great interest that I read Mr. McRae’s article in the Bulletin (Thursday Oct 17), in which he dismissed the idea of an economic development idea based on what appears to be nothing more than his own opinion. Although a prison may not be on everyone’s top ten list of economic development ideas, it and all ideas should at the very least be open for discussion. Do we immediately say no to potential opportunity that can offer a massive boost to our local economy simply because Mr. McRae doesn’t like the idea? Unfortunately we really don’t know what the commu-

nity thinks. We have not offered an open and free opportunity for anyone to weighin on the idea. There has been no opportunity for council to vet the idea. What do we say to members of the community that see a potential large construction project as opportunity? What do we say to citizens who think the possibility of an influx of a few hundred families to the community as a good thing? What do we say to upwards of 15 million dollars injected into the local economy annually... no thanks we are sitting back with our feet up on the desk waiting for “non geographic dependent businesses” to come calling? As an elected representative I feel it’s not so important what I think, but critical to what the community thinks. Its insulting to citizens that I or any other elected official can determine “emphatically” what will be endorsed (or not) without asking. If this is a dead duck Mr. McRae, then please tell me what great non-location dependent businesses are in the works. What have you been working on? Our community (like others) is faced with (to many) jobs that are chronically low paying, in addition we are also facing serious infrastructure

sustainability issues that will cost in the order of tens of millions of dollars over many years to deal with. Maybe we can organize a lollypop parade and take donations to help pay for all this, eh? Many thanks to Don McCormick for showing amazing energy, true leadership, phenomenal networking and communication ability, and above all raw guts to leave no economic opportunity stone unturned. Good for you Don McCormick, keep up the “Great” work!  Darryl Oakley Kimberley

of promises to all and sundry, but will it succeed in taking the mind of opposition parties off of the scandals of the summer past? Highly unlikely. Whether Prime Minister Harper intended the break from Parliament to change the channel from Senate spending scandals and other undesirable topics or not, it is unlikely the NDP or Liberal parties will allow those scandals to slip from memory. With police investigations into the spending of such Senators as Pamela Wallin ongoing, the matter is not likely to go away. The NDP and Liberals would be foolish to let it go. And face it, a politician of any stripe or party, will be a pit-bull when he/she senses weakness in an opponent. There are too many unknowns — as in who knew what — around the Senate spending scandal for the NDP or Liberals to let it die. Harper will have to face the questions in the House. Whether he chooses to answer them or not is up to him. But they will be asked. So all that proroguing was for nothing. It’s enough to make a person cynical about politics.

One Book One Kootenay author coming to Cranbrook

O

n a recent trip to the grocery store, Nelson author Deryn Collier was stopped by a reader. “I really think you should be writing. Go home. Right now. I need to know what happens to Bern.” Coroner Bern Fortin, protagonist in Collier’s debut novel Confined Space, has that effect on a lot of readers. To find out why – as well as why it was chosen by library users across the Kootenay and Boundary regions as this year’s One Book One Kootenay

(OBOK) selection – you need to read the book, and in fact the Kootenay Library Federation encourages Kootenay booklovers to do just that. Copies of Confined Space are available at every library in the region. Then mystery-lovers and others will want to come to a special presentation by Deryn Collier at the Cranbrook Public Library on Thursday, Oct. 24 at 7 p.m. Confined Space introduces Bern Fortin, coroner for a

small Kootenay town, as he investigates a murder in a brewery. Local readers may find the setting familiar since Collier drew on her experiences of when she worked for a time at Columbia Brewery in Creston before settling in Nelson for inspiration. Earlier this year, Confined Space was shortlisted for the Arthur Ellis Award for Best First Crime Novel by the Crime Writers of Canada. One Book, One Kootenay is a region-wide book club supported by public libraries in

the East and West Kootenays, the Kootenay-Boundary area, and the Columbia Basin Trust. Visit www.obok.ca to find out more about the program, a video interview with the Collier, as well as details of the upcoming the fifth annual OBOK. Call the Cranbrook Public Library at 250 426 4063 to sign up for Deryn Collier’s reading on Thursday, October 24th at 7 pm. It promises to be a suspense-filled and entertaining evening.

Cemetery of the Mediterranean

“I

don’t know how many more people need to die at sea before something gets done,” said Malta’s prime minister, Joseph Muscat. “As things stand we are building a cemetery within our Mediterranean Sea.” He was talking about the part of the Mediterranean between the North African coast and the two islands that are the closest bits of the European Union: the Italian island of Lampedusa and his own country, Malta. In the past two weeks, almost as many migrants have died in that narrow stretch of water – only 120 km. (80 miles) separate the Tunisian coast from Lampedusa – as died along the US-Mexican border in all of last year. On the southern US border they mostly die of thirst in the desert; in the Mediterranean they drown. The migrants pay the people smugglers in Libya or Tunisia thousands of dollars each to make the crossing in small, unseaworthy, grossly overcrowded boats, but the smugglers don’t go with them. They don’t want to get arrested at the end of the journey. They just hand over the keys to the migrants. The refugees – more than half of the 32,000 who have reached Italy so far this year come from Syria, Somalia or Eritrea – have no experience at sea. The boats leak, they run out of fuel, they catch fire, and nobody knows what to do about it. In many cases, the boats just capsize when everybody rushes to the same side to call for help from a passing ship or aircraft. Then they are in the water, and of course there are no life-jackets. Last week, when 359 Somali and Eritrean migrants drowned in a single boat, nobody even

had a satellite phone to summon help. Most of the migrants can’t swim, and even those who can often drown before help arrives. Every sinking brings stories of parents who could swim, but had to choose which children to save. “For us it’s intolerable that the Mediterranean is a sea of the dead,” said Prime Minister Enrico Letta of Italy on Monday, announcing that his country is tripling its air and naval presence in the death zone. But as Interior MinisAngelino Alfano warned, Gwynne ter “It’s not a given that the intervention of an Italian ship Dyer will mean that migrants are taken to an Italian port.” They don’t want the migrants to die, but they don’t want them to stay in Italy either. As in other European Union countries that are getting a lot of asylum-seekers, the flood of migrants from Africa and the Middle East is fuelling a powerful anti-immigrant backlash. The numbers are not really all that huge. Frontex, the EU agency that deals with refugees, recorded only 272,208 asylum-seekers last year. That’s the biggest number since 2005, but it’s only a drop in the bucket among the EU’s 400 million people. The problem is that they almost all head for a few relatively rich countries in western Europe – Britain, France, Germany and the Low Countries – or else end up stranded in Greece, Italy or Spain, the countries closest to where the refugees sail from. And for Italy, in particular, the problem has got a lot worse recently. A joint EU police force managed to close off the previously favoured route for Middle Eastern refugees, the Greek-Turkish border, in 2010, but that just redirected the migrants to sea routes across the

Mediterranean. The recent revolutions in Libya and Tunisia have crippled the ability of those countries to control their own coasts. And the wars in Syria and Somalia are generating ever larger numbers of desperate asylum-seekers. The Italians do let most of the migrants stay – although Germany accused Italy last May of encouraging the refugees to move on by giving them 500 euros ($680) and a “Schengen” visa that allows them to travel to most other EU countries without passport checks. But the brutal truth is this: the safer the EU countries make the Mediterranean crossing, the more people will try to come. Most of the migrants currently risking their lives in those little boats are genuine refugees, but behind them, in the vast sweep of countries from West Africa to Somalia and Iraq, there are several hundred million others who would leap at the chance of moving to Europe. The nationalists in those countries will indignantly deny that, but you only have to talk to ordinary people there to know that it is true. Europeans, like most people, want to see themselves as generous and caring, but behind all the humanitarian talk there is the stark reality that the EU will never make it so easy and safe to get in that even a small fraction of that vast reservoir of would-be migrants actually tries to make the journey. European leaders who let that happen would be committing political suicide. The least bad solution would be to encourage the emergence of stable governments in Tunisia and Libya that could stop the boats from leaving their shores, but that will not happen any time soon. In the meantime, people will go on drowning in the Mediterranean, although hopefully in smaller numbers than the catastrophe of the last few weeks.

Ice pick up three points in three games TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The number three was a recurring theme for the Kootenay Ice this weekend, which picked up a trio of points over three nights in games against the Saskatoon Blades and the Edmonton Oil Kings. Kootenay fell 4-2 to the Blades in Western Financial Place on Friday, then headed up to Edmonton for a pair of tilts, where they came out with a 4-3 win on Saturday and a 3-2 overtime loss on Sunday. The Ice got some reinforcements in the defensive corps on Saturday night, as Russian import defenceman Rinat Valiev finally settled his visa issues and flew into Alberta to join the team. Rookie Hudson Elynuik also picked a good time to score his first career WHL goal, which stood to be the game-winner on Saturday night. Utility man Jeff Hubic remained in the defensive

corps to cover the absence of the injured Tanner Faith, who is out indefinitely with an upper body injury. “I think my role is to just keep it simple,” said Hubic. “That’s how I’m trying to do everything.” Goaltending duties were split up, with Wyatt Hoflin standing in net against the Blades, while Mackenzie Skapski manned the crease for both games against the Oil Kings. Hoflin surrendered three goals in 29 shots for the loss, while Skapski was beat three times on Saturday in 31 shots and allowed the same number of goals in 26 shots on Sunday. Kootenay Ice head coach Ryan McGill lamented last week that he wasn’t getting enough secondary scoring, however, that changed this weekend as players other than Sam Reinhart or Jaedon Descheneau found the back of the net. Hubic and Austin Vetterl both scored their first goals

of the season to mark Kootenay’s only offence against the Blades. Hubic pinched in from the point and collected his own rebound for his goal, while Vetterl waited out the goaltender and sniped the five-hole on an odd-man rush. Reinhart and Descheneau did everything they could to score; the former rang a shot off the iron and the latter missed a wide-open net, however, both collected assists on Hubic’s goal. At the first intermission of the game, Vicki Syfchuck, who was participating in a breast cancer fundraiser, was released from the comforts of a 2014 Sierra GM truck, where she had been spending the last 30 hours. Collin Valcourt broke a 2-2 tie in the third period and Clayton Kirichenko scored on the empty net as the Blades took away the win.

Nitros cool to Rockets, explode against Rockies, Nitehawks TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Despite a brief setback, the Nitros regained their fire, collecting four of six points over the weekend with a loss and two wins. Kimberley lost a 4-2 decision to the Rockets in Golden on Friday, completed a comeback on Saturday to win 5-4 in overtime over the Rockies and hammered the Nitehawks 6-2 on Sunday in Fruitvale.

The four points catapulted the Nitros back on top of the Eddie Mountain division, as the Rockies had briefly pulled ahead before the weekend action. The game against the Rockies was especially important, said Andrew Stack, who scored the game winner in overtime on Saturday night. “Obviously Columbia Valley is in our division, so divisional games are

always huge, and especially in a game like tonight—I think they had a point on us going into first place, so coming out with this win was big for us, because we want to

stay on top of the division this year, for sure,” Stack said. A full version of this story can be found online at: www.dailytownsman.com.

A business without advertising gets you no customers.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You could be as clear as a bell, but you still will witness a lot of confusion. Your intuition will counter what you are hearing. You might become irritated and angry as a result of this misunderstanding. Know that everyone is human. Tonight: Choose a stressbuster. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Be aware of the cost of not being as thorough as you could be in a certain area of your life. You might feel as if a risk is worth taking. Make sure you look at the worst-case scenario before you commit. You’ll be less likely to make a mistake. Tonight: Run errands on the way home. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You’ll be ready to proceed full throttle, but you could get tripped up by a misunderstanding. You are slightly accident-prone, and you might not be ready to take off on a physical jaunt. Relax, and choose to do only what feels right. Tonight: As you like it.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) You might think one way, but within hours, you could reverse your direction. The elements of indecision and confusion easily could mark your day, if not the next few weeks. Try to give yourself some space to figure out what you want. Tonight: Start thinking about Halloween. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Confusion starts right now, whether it is around you or within you. Be as succinct as possible. Your diligence will keep you out of trouble. Use caution and good sense before spending money or committing to any investments. Tonight: See through the obvious. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Your anger flares easily. The issue is how you handle it. Somehow you could be involved with a misunderstanding today or in the near future. No one likes being misrepresented. A partner or associate will seem vested in not getting it. Tonight: Claim your power. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You are all smiles, no matter

Tundra

which way you look at a personal matter. At this moment, you will want to detach to gain a new perspective. Don’t let this attitude undermine being supportive. Confirm meetings and times. Tonight: Release any tension through exercise. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Deal with a partner directly. Even if some tension ensues, know that you have done better than anyone else could. Your imagination might conjure up a lot of reasons for the problem that might not be grounded. Let them go. Tonight: Even if it is Monday, go let off some steam. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Defer to others, as your perspective might not be heard at the present time. A boss or someone you look up to could be cantankerous and touchy. Meanwhile, you could be thinking in other terms and not connecting. Tonight: Go along with someone’s suggestion. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Stay focused on what you are doing. Confirm all plans. Misunderstandings easily can happen.

Understand your limits. Let your creativity emerge in a discussion. Know that your message might not be digested and understood by everyone. Tonight: Be diplomatic. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) While others are in the midst of confusion, you seem to carry on with the playfulness of the weekend. Your easygoing attitude might help you, but it could aggravate someone close. Be as clear as you can be about plans. Others will be touchy. Tonight: Deal with someone’s ire. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Defer to others as much as you want. Confusion surrounds a partner’s feelings. This person might not be as clear as he or she should be, and you might not be able to read between the lines. In fact, you most likely are seeing only what you want to see. Tonight: Stay close to home. BORN TODAY Chemist Alfred Nobel (1833), actress Carrie Fisher (1956), bandleader Dizzy Gillespie (1917)***

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I’m a 50-year-old male, married for 20 years to a beautiful woman in her 40s. The past five years have been hard. I have made mistakes during our marriage, but have worked hard to change and be a better husband. I don’t drink, smoke or gamble. I love my wife dearly and have never cheated. I don’t want anyone but her. Unfortunately, my wife displays no emotion toward me in any way. Everything we do together is fine, and she is a wonderful companion, but her coldness is killing my spirit. I don’t want to spend the rest of my life like this. I want us to enjoy each other’s company. I have dealt with this for as long as I can, and I think I’ve reached the end of my tether. I need help. -- Crushed Dear Crushed: We don’t know what you did in the past that may be contributing to your wife’s coldness toward you, but if you have made genuine efforts to redeem yourself for five years, she needs to cut you some slack before it’s too late. There’s a point at which punishment becomes counterproductive, and you’ve reached it. Please talk to your wife and let her know that the current situation has become intolerable and you cannot continue in the marriage like this. Ask her to go with you for counseling to work on ways to warm up and improve your relationship. As always, if she refuses, go without her. Dear Annie: I am a member of a large family. We are planning a beach vacation for next summer and are having issues with how to share the expense of the rental house. The house sleeps 14. I think the fair way to share the expense is to divide the total rental cost by the number of occupied beds. Other members of the family (those with children) can’t afford that much and say costs should be split equally between the adult siblings. That means it would cost me, a single adult, as much as it would my sister’s family of four. It also means the cost would be divided by seven instead of 14, so the total price is a lot higher per sibling. I don’t feel I should have to subsidize my sister’s kids’ vacation. What do you think is fair to all parties? -- Shore To Cause a Problem Dear Shore: Unless your siblings’ spouses and children don’t plan to eat, bathe or use electricity, the cost per person is higher than just a bed. But dividing all costs by the number of people may mean that your siblings cannot afford it and won’t come. So what’s “fair” may not work for your family. Figure out the costs per person. (Very young children should not count the same as adults, and anyone who gets a bedroom to himself should pay a little extra.) Then determine what each sibling can afford of their fraction of the total. The siblings who can afford more might choose to pool extra money to make up for those siblings who are less well off. The important thing is to discuss and agree on the price in advance. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Devastated,” whose family will not accept her relationship with an African-American man. Our daughter married a black man in 1975. My biggest reservation was the prejudice that their children might face. But they handled it in an exemplary fashion. They taught their two lovely daughters to tell people, “My dad is black and my mother is white, and that’s just the way it is.” I learned to love my son-in-law as if he were my own child. He is a special man. They have been married 37 years and counting. I side with you, Annie. It is really nobody’s business. I hope “Devastated” will go for it. -- Proud Mother in Kansas Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

A five year survey of more than 3,000 companies found that advertisers who maintained or expanded advertising during a troubled economy saw sales increase an average of 100%.

4. Continuous Advertising Strengthens Your Image. When people who postpone buying come back to the marketplace, you’ve got a better chance of getting their business if you’ve continued to maintain a solid, reliable image.

5. Direct Advertising is Cost Efficient. Direct has the advantages – demographic and geographic numbers to afford advertisers the best value and exposure for their advertising dollar.

6. Advertise to Generate Traffic. Continuous traffic is the first step toward sales increases and expanding your base of buyers. The more people who contact you, the more possibilities you have to make sales.

7. Advertise to Make More Sales. Advertising works! Businesses that succeed are usually strong, steady advertisers. Look around. You’ll find the most aggressive and consistent advertisers are almost invariably the most successful.

8. Advertise Because There is Always Business to Generate. Salespeople are on the payroll. As long as you’re in business, you have overhead and you’ve got to advertise to generate a steady cash flow.

9. Advertise to Keep a Healthy Positive Image. In a troubled economy, rumors and bad news travel fast. Advertising corrects gossip, shoots down false reports and projects positively.

10. Advertise to Maintain Employee Morale. When advertising and promotion are cut, salespeople become less motivated. They may believe the store is cutting back, even going out of business.

Call today and start advertising.
