Special RCMP officers guard the Nomad Motel in Cranbrook, where an incident carried well into the night.

Distraught male at centre of police incident in Cranbrook SALLY MACDONALD Cranbrook Daily Townsman

A tense hours-long police standoff at Cranbrook’s Nomad Motel came to an end soon after 9 p.m. on Wednesday, October 30. Dozens of police and emergency services personnel stood guard outside the motel from about 12:30 p.m. The highway was closed from that time until about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday. According to an RCMP statement,

police responded to a call about a distraught male holed up in a motel room. “Police attended to assist, when the male made comments that caused them concern as it affected public safety. “Police set up a perimeter, moved persons out of the area and are currently attempting to make contact with the male inside,” said Cpl. Chris Newel in a statement released about 4 p.m. “It is unknown if he has any weapons but police are taking precautions to

ensure the safety of those in the area.” The highway was closed to traffic in both directions from Victoria Avenue to 6th Street North. At about 2 p.m., a police emergency response team in camouflage uniforms with semi-automatic weapons arrived on the scene. Negotiators were able to re-establish contact with the suspect just before 9 p.m. and took him into custody without incident. He was not suffering injuries.

New anti- One more One World workshop bullying measures in the workplace Employers must have procedures in place to allow employees to deal with on the job harassment and bullying C AROLYN GR ANT

This Friday, November 1, Worksafe BC will begin enforcing new regulations around bullying and harassment in the work place. In other words, bullying has become an issue for which the victim can collect compensation. Bullying and harassment are defined as any inappropriate conduct or comment by a person to the worker that the person knew or ought to have known would cause that worker to be humiliated or intimidated. Work places in B.C. are expected to have a policy in place to deal with bullying by November 1. Bev Campbell of Kimberley is an Employee Advocate who has written a book, ‘Seven Steps to Overcome Bullying in the Workplace - A Survival Guide’. While the book was written before Campbell knew that Worksafe BC would be regulating harassment and bullying on the job, it does offer common sense approaches in dealing with on the job bullying. And since Campbell learned about the new regulations, she has studied them and is now offering workshops to help businesses deal with them. She just recently presented a workshop to the Kimberley Chamber of Commerce.

“A lot of people aren’t aware that the regulations are coming,” Campbell said. “The workshop I’m doing tells people what to do to be in compliance. You must have policies in place, and procedures in place. There must be repercussions. Notes have to be kept.” Campbell said that prior to these regulations, people who were being bullied had no real recourse. She herself was bullied on the job in Alberta and had no place to turn. “I had to leave the job. The doctors said I was fit to return to work but I couldn’t go back to that company. Had these regulations been in place I could have applied for compensation.” Campbell says that many people who have been off on stress leave have been bullied at work. “The are physical and physiological affects that are the result of bullying. If the bully was a supervisor or owner, you really had no place to go. Now you can submit a claim to Worksafe.” If you are being bullied on the job, you must report it through the company’s established reporting procedures. “It’s under the category of any work place safety violation,” Campbell said. “They cannot fire you for it, and if there are other actions, it’s a continuation of the bullying.” Other employees who witness bullying are also able to report it to Worksafe. “The worker, the supervisor and the employer all have to work together to create a safe work environment,” Campbell said.

Last One World Garden Workshop of the Season: Saturday November 2 in Kimberley and Cranbrook

The sixth and final workshop in the One World Garden Series, Can-Do Composting, is coming up Saturday, November 2, 10-noon in Kimberley and 3-5pm in Cranbrook. We’re planning a very hands-on experience this month, so if English is not your most comfortable language, it will be manageable to follow this workshop and in the case of chilly weather we’ll all keep warm! In Can-Do Composting, we’ll be learning what kinds of things we can do to get our composts ready for winter and how to keep composting despite the cold weather. A compost in your backyard is an incredibly beneficial nutrient source for your garden – and it’s a great way to reuse ‘waste’ from your kitchen and yard. The best part about it is that it’s free! This process is simple and relatively easy when you know the tricks to keep things on track. “At this time of the year there are certainly some people out there, myself included, who are overwhelmed with an out of control compost after a season’s worth of feeding it,” remarks Shannon Grey Duncan, project coordinator. “This workshop will be a great chance to bring up troubleshooting questions for our experienced local mentors to help with.” The goal of this workshop series is to increase the local capacity for growing food by offering a place where immigrants or people new to gardening can learn more about growing food locally while gaining hands-on experience and exchanging skills with local members of

the community. This is the final workshop in our 6 part series, and it has been really wonderful to share a season of gardening with many participants since June. “We’ve been fortunate to have different guest garden mentors at each workshop, and this one will be no exception,” says Jessica Windle of Wildsight Kimberley Cranbrook. “The wealth of local knowledge is inspiring and the garden is a great place to learn and share, as well as meet new people and get to know our local community gardens.” The Kimberley workshop will be held from 10-noon at the Kimberley Community Allotment Garden, located on Wallinger Ave. beside Coronation Park and in Cranbrook from 3-5pm at the Public Produce Garden in Eric McKinnon Park. As part of the Welcoming Communities project, Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy, Cranbrook Food Action Committee and Wildsight Kimberley Cranbrook have teamed up to provide these gardening workshops for free. This project is made possible through funding from the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia. The workshops are free but require registration. To register, in Cranbrook: or call (250)427-7981, in Kimberley: shannon@ or call (250)427-2535 ext 223.

Senior’s Lifestyle Community Keeps Winter at Bay Life in winter can be daunting for seniors. The cold temperatures can make the simplest of tasks much more difficult. Chores like shoveling the drive-way or picking up groceries can turn into momentous tasks. Ice and snow represent real physical dangers that can not only cause a nasty fall but also get in the way of activities outside the house. There is always the worry of a broken or failing heating system that can result in all manner of bills and troubles, adding more unnecessary stress. Combine these stresses and it may lower quality of life, causing family members endless worry. Fortunately retirement housing at Garden View Village can provide plenty of peace of mind for both the residents and the family members, with apartments designed to take the worry out of winter. Not only are the studio, one and two-bedroom suites appointed for comfort and independence but also include many key features to help with each resident’s individual wants and needs. Independent heat and airconditioning controls allow them to set the apartments temperature to whatever will be most comfortable for them. Full kitchens and large wheelchair accessible bathrooms can help residents maintain their independence while weekly housekeeping services and 24-hour assistance is available for complete peace of mind. Since the Village boasts many leisure opportunities, residents don’t have to worry about braving the harsh winter weather in search of relaxation and fun. Just outside of their front door they will find many amenities such as a games room, library, and spa, as well as many lounge areas which

are certain to be filled with friendly faces and familiar smiles. There are also special recreational and social activities such as live entertainment, exercise programs and excursions to local attractions, which are all covered in the affordable monthly rent. Also included in the rent are the delicious meals which are prepared by the onsite chef in the warm central dining room where residents can enjoy meal next to a cozy fireplace where friends and family are always welcome to join. Garden View Village also understands just how much pets are a part of the family. Residents are encouraged to share their apartments with their companions in the totally pet friendly building. With all of these wonderful features the Village relieves worries not only for residents but also for family members. “I had the best winter last year because I live three hours away and didn’t have to worry about my mom being alone.” said Linda Frew, whose mother is a resident at Garden View Village. “I have total peace of mind knowing there is staff on site 24 hours a day, that she has company for dinner every night, and she is being well cared for. But most of all I have peace of mind knowing she is very happy.” No longer should seniors have to worry about shoveling the walkway or what they’ll do should a maintenance emergency befall them. Cold weather is no reason that seniors shouldn’t be free to enjoy the many activities, freedoms, and quality of life. Garden View Village provides just that and much, much more. Open daily; call Garden View Village at (250) 427-4014 for more information or to book a tour.

Judy Collins continues never-ending tour Legendary singer, Renaissance woman, plays Cranbrook Nov. 6 Barry Coulter

The great Judy Collins has a message for the people of Cranbrook. “I sure look forward to seeing you,” she said, while speaking to the Daily Townsman this week. “I can’t wait to be singing there for you. And I hope you’ll all come and have a great

time.” The legendary singer, who released her first album in 1961, discovered Canadians Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen, and became one of the most beloved vocalists of the past 50 years, is Cranbrook as part of a swing through the theatres of smaller cities in the U.S. and Western Canada. Though perhaps Canadian tour is the wrong word. Like Bob Dylan, her famous compatriot from the folk revival movement, Collins is on a never-ending tour of

sorts. “I’m always on tour, so wherever I go there I am,” she told the Townsman from New York. “I do about 120 shows a year all over the country and all over the world.” Collins has been a musical presence since her involvement in the folk music scene of the early 1960s, through the heyday of that famous musical decade, recording songs by artists like Ian Tyson, Joni Mitchell, Randy Newman, and other, before those artists themselves achieved they acclaim they were PHOTO SUBMITTED

IMPORTANT NOTICE Canadian Pacific Railway will be replacing the railway crossing in Cranbrook at 3rd Street NW starting on Monday October 28 ending on Friday November 1, 2013. The crossing will be open to regular traffic on Monday October 28 and Tuesday October 29, but will be closed to all traffic on Wednesday October 30 and Thursday October 31. Motorists wishing to access the Industrial Park during the closure should use either the King Street North or the 6th Street North railway crossings. The City of Cranbrook and the CPR apologize for any inconvenience this project may cause.

to reach. Her musical style became more and more diverse from the guitar-based folk songs she started out recording, until by the early 1970s she was standing out for her own compositions as well. In 1975, her version of “Send in the Clowns,” a ballad written by Stephen Sondheim won song of the year at the Grammy awards. Judy has continued an impressive musical career with an extensive catalog from every decade throughout the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and up to the present. Collins’ Cranbrook show will be an intimate,

stripped down presentation — guitar and piano. “I always travel with a pianist, and I play the guitar, so that’s what we do. I’ve always done that so it’s fine with me — it’s wonderful.” She also discussed the program the audience can expect. “We’ll be doing a lot of the new things we’re doing, including a (composer and songwriter Stephen) Sondheim PBS special — so we’re adding some Sondheim. There’ll be some Irish songs — I just did a big Irish PBS show in County Clare, as well as some of the hits. We’ll certainly be doing ‘Send in The

Clouds,’ ‘Both Sides Now.’” Collins’ 50-plus year career has been a throughline through several important musical eras. She was asked if there were any particular moments that especially stood out for her. “Surely the first 10 years or so were the highlight,” she answered. “The high point of the sixties in terms of the writing, the singer-songwriters, the recording. “The record labels were strong, the clubs were strong, the concerts were strong — the television shows were even strong. There were people like the Smothers

Brothers, Glen Campbell — there were very strong music shows as well. “The whole network was supported, and the songwriters were there,” Collins said. “It was a very exciting time. “And of course I worked with everybody from Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Mimi Farina — discovered Joni Mitchell, discovered Leonard Cohen. Collins spoke of her long affiliation of the most famous and renowned of Canadian musicians. “I was very much involved with the Canadian writers from the first,” she said. “I got to know (folksinger and songwriter) Ed McCurdy, the great Ian and Sylvia. I recorded their song ‘Someday Soon.’ “I also got to know Gordon Lightfoot — recorded his song “Early Morning Rain. Not to mention, of course, her decades of affiliation with Cohen and Mitchell. “I’m very fond of Canadian writers,” Collins said. “There’s something about the Canadian writers that very much appeals to me.” Collins, now 71, is a modern day Renaissance woman; an accomplished painter, filmmaker, record label head, musical mentor, and keynote speaker for mental health and suicide prevention. She performs the Key City Theatre in Cranbrook on Wednesday, November 6 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $45 plus GST and are available at the Key City Theatre box office or charge by phone at 250-426-7006.

Centre 64 Fall Jazz Series For the Bullein

October 18th was the last of the three fall jazz concerts presented by Centre 64. Following the success of The Pugs and Crows on September 7, and Kogging on September 28th, Jaclyn Guillou and her quartet, put on an excellent show. Set in a cabaret venue, the audience was treated to a wonderful blend of original pieces and a few Jazz Standards. Jaclyn’s voice and stage presence captivated one and all. Her back-up group treated us to some wonderful instrumentation and improvisation. The audience of almost 90 people rose to their feet at the end of the evening for a well deserved standing ovation.

Performing Arts Committee (PAC), says that “the success of this series certainly inspires us to offer a similar Jazz series next fall. The consensus of the audience was that each concert in the series provided a high level of performance at a very reasonable cost.” The PAC distributed a survey at the Kimberley Community Fair and at the final concert. Participants were asked preferences in music style and genres to guide the committee in planning the Winter/Spring con-

cert series. More to come on that series in the near future. Centre 64 and the PAC would like to acknowledge and thank the sponsors of the Jazz Series for their on-going and generous support: Mountain Spirit Resort for providing accommodation: The Burrito Grill for feeding the musicians dinner and Our Place for providing breakfast. Thanks also to the many volunteers at Centre 64 that make these concerts possible.

Dueck is just back from Switzerland where he spent late September and early October getting some time on a glacier, training and equipment testing. Olympic-level athletes train on a four-year cycle, Dueck says, with years two and three being the most intense and then tapering off in year four so one doesn’t peak too early. Dueck committed to the Sochi Games not long after Vancouver and says he’s not ready to quit yet. “I won’t quit because it’s fun and I love it. I’m just going to get as many days as I can on the snow, and keep it light.” Dueck has skied a test event on the Sochi course and he thinks it sets up well for him. “It’s a challenging, technical hill. There are very steep sections at the top to build speed and there are steep parts with a big jump at the bottom. That’s in my favour. I’m pretty comfortable in the air.” Dueck, who became a paraplegic after a skiing accident in 2004, says there is no comparison to the feeling he gets when going fast. “The faster I go the slower the world seem to go. It’s like it goes by in slow motion. I don’t have the opportunity to

Too much candy can be scary


alloween is almost here and soon little ghosts and goblins will be wandering the streets in search of Halloween candy. If your children generally eat well all year long, then enjoying Halloween sweets is not a big deal – the key of course is moderation and making sure there is more to Halloween than just the candy. Try these ideas to help make Halloween a little healthier. Serve a healthy meal. On Halloween night serve a healthy meal before the kids head out to go trick-ortreating. If kids feel full before they go trick-or-

Rose Soneff treating, they will be less tempted to eat candy along the way and will eat fewer pieces of candy afterwards when they return home. Hand out non-sugary treats. Stand out from the crowd and give out something other than candy. Fun alternatives to treats include Halloween styled pens,

pencils, and stickers. If you do give out sweets, avoid the sticky gooey ones – try small plain chocolate bars or sugarless gums which are less likely to promote cavities. Encourage exercise while trick or treating. Make trick-or-treating an active family affair. Walk from house to house instead of driving. Wear pedometers to see how far you go. End the evening with active play. End the trick-or-treating part of the evening early and return home to play some spooktacular active games and healthy snacks. Manage the candy. One of the biggest challenges for kids and par-


ents is managing all that Halloween candy. Ellyn Satter is a wellknown specialist on feeding children. She offers these steps to help children learn to manage sweets and to keep sweets in proportion to the other food they eat: “On Halloween night, when your children come home from trick-or-treating, let them lay out their candy, be really excited about it, sort it, and eat as much of it as they want, whenever they want. Let them do the same the next day. On the third day, have them put the candy away (out of sight) and tell them Halloween is over and the candy is a treat. Explain that they

can eat the candy at regular meal and snack times – a couple of small pieces for dessert or snacks. Serve milk with a candy snack to boost nutrition. When the candy is gone, return to healthier snacks.” Looking for more healthy Halloween ideas?

The First Meadowlark

Cranbrook’s Joyce Beek captures life on the prairies in her first book, a family memoir Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

Cranbrook writer Joyce Beek has published her first book, a memoir that beautifully captures several generations of family history. Joyce has been writing for years but was inspired to write about her ancestors by her sister. “My sister Dell wrote about the lives of servicemen from Dauphin who had been killed in the war. Dell died of cancer and I wanted to carry on in her vein,” Joyce tells the Townsman. She began writing “The First Meadowlark” about five years ago and finished in March. “I wanted children and grandchildren of all families to search out past information and to study and honour their ancestors.” Joyce was born during a blizzard into a multigenerational farming family on the Manitoba prairies midway between the two World Wars. She is the youngest of five daughters, who lived in a modest homestead not far from Dauphin. Joyce retraces her family’s steps to her pioneer ancestors who first made the long journey from Ontario to the prairies in the late 1800s. She tells of their difficult journey – across the Great Lakes to Minnesota, across the Mississippi to North Dakota, and lastly on a paddle wheeler up the Red River to Winnipeg – and the

struggles they experienced when they finally made it to Manitoba. For instance, her grandmother gave birth to 14 children, but had to bury 10 of them. Eight babies died in infancy, a girl died age 10, and another daughter died at age 19. It was a hard life. “It is easy for me to glory in the past and forget the troubles and pain endured in the early settler days,” Joyce writes. I most enjoyed “The First Meadowlark” as Joyce shares stories from her childhood, about farming, rural schools and small town living. Joyce remembers those particularly cold winter days when her father would give her a ride to her tiny rural school in a horse-drawn sled, bundled under a blanket with her feet warmed by heated stones. She tells of her father’s last harvest, using a four horse team the way he had always done to cut the standing grain. After her family purchases an automobile, Joyce describes a typical Saturday night in Dauphin, watching a film in the theatre, spending nickels on liquorice suckers and jaw breakers, while her mother visited in the grocery store with neighbours. The book is packed with family photos which bring the stories and personalities to life. The Lee family – Jack and Elsie and their daughters Phyllis, Margie, Isy, Dell and Joyce – seem to be in many ways a

Joyce Beek displays her first novel in her Cranbrook home. typical Manitoba farming family, and in “The First Meadowlark” Joyce captures the experience of many generations who live off the prairie soil. But what sets the book apart is the affection Joyce shows for her loved ones in gently and respectfully telling their stories. “I wrote about my sister Dell and my mother often in tears for feelings not expressed in words,” she says. Joyce lingers on her memories of each of her sisters, who have all passed away now, capturing their best traits and sharing her favourite things about them. “The First Meadowlark” is a touchingly detailed family

memoir that depicts an era that has passed now. It is sure to be treasured by many future generations of the Lee family’s descendants who will never want for memories of their ancestors. “The First Meadowlark” will also be enjoyed not only by anyone who grew up on the prairies, but also by those who are curious about that way of life. Joyce Beek will be a special guest at the Cranbrook Public Library’s 45 Books in 45 Minutes event. Visit the library from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Friday, November 1, to hear Joyce read from “The First Meadowlark”.

Premier offers highway work, LNG prospects Tom Fletcher Black Press

Premier Christy Clark announced $15 million for highway safety improvements in a speech to Vancouver Island business leaders Wednesday, and dangled the prospect of liquefied natural gas export jobs as well. In a speech to the Vancouver Island Economic Alliance Summit in Nanaimo, Clark said not everyone expected her to return for this year’s event, before her upset win in the election in May. Vancouver Island was the only region where the B.C. Liberal government lost ground under Clark’s leadership, with the party shut out of the populous southern region around the capital Victoria. The highway commitment is for 2.3 km of centre barrier on High-

way 1 from Shawnigan Lake to the Malahat summit, an extended passing lane and improvements to two intersections. Work is to begin next year. Clark said when it is completed, half of the Malahat corridor will be protected by dividers, including an area near Shawnigan Lake known locally as “NASCAR corner” where vehicles speed to pass before the road narrows.

SPORTS BRIEFS Hudson’s Bay Co. unveils Canadian Olympic team uniforms for Sochi Games

TORONTO - Canadians are getting their first glimpse of the styles that the country’s Olympic athletes will be sporting in Sochi. Official outfitter Hudson’s Bay Co. unveiled the Canadian Olympic team uniforms for the 2014 Winter Games during an event in Toronto today. As always, the patriotic new designs flaunt Canada’s colours as well as black. The collection will feature “Canada” in a vintage classic wordmark as well as imagery of the polar bear, beaver and loon. All of the replica garments being made for consumers and a portion of clothes created for the athletes are being made in China. After the Canadian team uniforms were unveiled ahead of the Beijing Olympics in 2008, the federal government and several opposition MPs cried foul after learning most of the clothes were manufactured by the host country - China -and not in Canada.

Allen Iverson retires after NBA prospects dry up Say goodbye, A.I. Allen Iverson officially retired from the NBA on Wednesday, ending a 15-year career during which he won the 2001 MVP award and four scoring titles. Iverson retired in Philadelphia where he had his greatest successes and led the franchise to the 2001 NBA finals. Iverson says he’ll be a Sixer “until the day I die.” The 6-foot guard had not played in an NBA game since Feb. 20, 2010, and had a brief pro stint in Turkey. He also played for Denver, Detroit and Memphis. Iverson scored 24,368 points and was an 11time All-Star. Former Georgetown coach John Thompson and former Sixers great Julius Erving were in attendance for the ceremony. Iverson says he always thought retirement would be a “tragic” day. But he says he’s happy in his personal life and at peace with his decision. Associated Press

Ice complete comeback win over Rebels TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Sam Reinhart scored the winner while Mackenzie Skapski made three stops to lift the Kootenay Ice to a 4-3 shootout victory over the Rebels in Red Deer on Wednesday night. Despite falling to an early 2-0 deficit, the Ice were able to mount a comeback in the third period to tie up the game at 3-3 and force the shootout after a scoreless extra frame. Jaedon Descheneau scored a pair of goals, while Ryan Chynoweyth added a goal to the scoresheet. Skapski made 25 saves over the course of the game, including overtime. Reinhart scored the only goal in the shootout, as Tim Bozon and Rinat Valiev were turned away by Rebels netminder Patrik Bartosak. Despite a softer start, Kootenay was able to improve throughout the second and third peri-

od, said head coach Ryan McGill. “We got better as the game went on,” McGill said. “We had to adjust our lines, we were okay territorially in the first 12 minutes of the game, but we didn’t generate anything. “We gave up two easy goals and that can’t happen.” The Rebels just about drew blood 10 seconds into the game, taking advantage of a bad giveaway in the Kootenay zone, but Skapski was there to make the save. However, Red Deer did get on the board six minutes into the game on a turnover, as Lukas Sutter put a low wrist shot into the back of the net. As the seconds ticked down to end the first period, Matt Bellerive double the lead for the Rebels, beating a screened Skapski on a wrist shot. In the middle frame, Descheneau cut the

lead in half over 10 minutes in by redirecting a backdoor pass from defenceman Jagger Dirk, who posted his 100th career WHL point with the assist.

Red Deer answered back early in the third period on a shorthanded effort, as Brooks Maxwell stole the puck at the Rebels blue line on an Ice power play, and scored on a breakaway. However, Descheneau responded with a backhander in the slot that beat Bartosak after Matt Alfaro did some digging in the corner for the puck. With just under 10

minutes to go in the third period, Rinat Valiev threw the biscuit on net and Ryan Chynoweth shovelled away to score his second goal of the season to tie up the affair. “The second period, we only had one goal to show for it, but we were trending upwards, and I thought we were better in the third,” said McGill. “I guess you could kind of call it a bit of an ugly hockey game, but two points is two points and it’s a big win for us as far as coming back, being down on the road going into the third period.” The Ice took two late penalties and had to make some key special teams performances at the end of the frame and into overtime. Kootenay killed off all three Red Deer powerplays, but were unable to capitalize on two of their own. “Our first powerplay, we had lots of opportu-

nities to score goals, we had no finish in our game on the powerplay, but we definitely had scoring chances,” said McGill. “Unfortunately we didn’t score. “I will say this—the penalty kill was huge character in the third, for sure.” Overtime solved nothing, though Red Deer held the edge in shots 4-1. Bozon, Reinhart and Valiev—who was chosen, according to McGill, because of his performance in a shootout drill earlier this week—were tapped for the shootout. Red Deer fielded Rhyse Dieno, Dominik Volek and Connor Bleackley—all of whom were stopped by Skapski, who has an unblemished record in the shootout. In handing the Rebels their fifth straight loss, Kootenay leapfrogs ahead of the Edmonton Oil Kings into fourth place in the Eastern Conference.

Red Wings edge Canucks 2-1 in Vancouver JOSHUA CLIPPERTON Canadian Press

VANCOUVER - Tomas Tatar scored his first goal of the season late in the second period Wednesday as the Detroit Red Wings defeated the Vancouver Canucks 2-1. Daniel Alfredsson had the other goal for the Red Wings (7-4-2), while Jimmy Howard made 19 saves as Detroit snapped a four-game slide. Daniel Sedin scored for Vancouver (9-5-1), which finished with a season-low 20 shots and saw its four-game winning streak come to an end. Roberto Luongo stopped 25 shots in taking the loss. Henrik Sedin set up Vancouver’s first goal to extend his point streak to 10 games (three goals, nine assists). Trailing 1-0 after the first period in a game that lacked much excitement, Alfredsson tied the score at 11:37 of the second with his third goal of the season. The former Ottawa Senators captain picked up a loose puck in the slot and fired a shot off the post that rebounded in off Luongo’s leg. Playing just his fifth game of

the season, the 22-year-old Tatar then gave Detroit its first lead of the night with 62 seconds left in the period. With the Canucks collapsing in their own zone, Tartar fired a weak shot from just inside the blueline that found its way through Luongo. Vancouver defenceman Christopher Tanev tried to get out of the way of the shot, but instead appeared to screen the Canucks’ goalie. No longer conference rivals thanks to realignment, the Canucks and Red Wings combined for just 31 shots and few scoring chances through two periods in a defensive matchup that was played between the blue-lines most of the night. Vancouver’s power play,

which has just four goals all season and came in ranked 28th in the NHL, got an opportunity early in the third but was unable to muster any realistic scoring chances. Canucks forward Alexandre Burrows, playing in his second game back from injury after breaking his foot in the season opener, then fanned on a chance in the slot right in front of Howard. Vancouver head coach John Tortorella reunited Burrows with the Sedin twins to start the third period. Ryan Kesler, usually Vancouver’s second-line centre, had been playing on the top line since about the midway point of the Canucks’ recent seven-game road trip.

Luongo kept Vancouver in it with a big pad stop on Detroit’s Justin Abdelkader on a 3-on-1 break with five minutes to go to keep his team in it, but the Canucks couldn’t find a way past Howard. The Sedins teamed up to energize an otherwise dull first period with the opening goal at 14:12. Daniel Sedin glided over the Red Wings’ blue-line and made a drop pass to Henrik Sedin, who cut into the slot. Daniel Sedin moved to the bottom of the faceoff circle and one-timed the return feed past a helpless Howard for his sixth of the season. Luongo then made a big save off former Canucks forward Todd Bertuzzi with four minutes left in the period.

Avalanche goaltender Semyon Varlamov arrested ASSOCIATED PRESS

DENVER - Colorado Avalanche goalie Semyon Varlamov surrendered to Denver police on an arrest warrant on charges of kidnapping and third-degree assault in what authorities are calling a domestic violence incident.

Police released few details about the case Wednesday night during a brief press conference and declined to elaborate, other than to say it involved someone who Varlamov was in an intimate relationship with. Sgt. Steve Warneke said the Russian goalie went to police

Wednesday at about 6 p.m. The Avalanche said in a statement they are aware of the allegations but wouldn’t comment further until the conclusion of the investigation. The Avalanche acquired Varlamov a 2011 trade with Washington.

Red Sox win World Series, beat Cardinals 6-1 in Game 6 Ronald Blum Associated Press

BOSTON - There hasn’t been a party like this in New England for nearly a century. Turmoil to triumph. Worst to first. David Ortiz and the Boston Red Sox, baseball’s bearded wonders, capped their remarkable turnaround by beating the St. Louis Cardinals 6-1 in Game 6 on Wednesday night to win their third World Series championship in 10 seasons. With the celebration underway, Ortiz took a microphone on the field and addressed a city still reeling from the marathon bombings about a mile away in April. “This is for you, Boston. You guys deserve it,” said Ortiz, the Series MVP. “We’ve been through a lot this year and this is for all of you and all those families who struggled.” And this time, the Red Sox didn’t have to fly the trophy home. For the first time since Babe Ruth’s team back in 1918, Boston won the title at Fenway Park. The 101-year-old stadium, oldest in the majors, was packed with 38,447 singing, shouting fans anticipating a celebration more than a lifetime in the making. “Maybe they won’t have to go another 95

years,” said John Farrell, a champion in his first season as Boston’s manager. Shane Victorino, symbolic of these resilient Sox, returned from a stiff back and got Boston rolling with a threerun double off the Green Monster in the third inning on a 93 mph fastball from rookie sensation Michael Wacha. Pumped with emotion, Victorino pounded his chest with both fists three times.

“This is for you, Boston. You guys deserve it. We’ve been through a lot this year and this is for all of you and all those families who struggled.” David Ortiz

John Lackey became the first pitcher to start and win a Series clincher for two different teams, allowing one run over 6 2-3 innings 11 years after his Game 7 victory as an Angels rookie in 2002. With fans roaring on every pitch and cameras flashing, Koji Uehara struck out Matt Carpenter for the final out. The Japanese pitcher

jumped into the arms of catcher David Ross while Red Sox players rushed from the dugout and bullpen as the Boston theme “Dirty Water” played on the public-address system. There wasn’t the “Cowboy Up!” comeback charm of “The Idiots” from 2004, who swept St. Louis to end an 86-year title drought. There wasn’t that cool efficiency of the 2007 team that swept Colorado. “We have a lot of players with heart. We probably don’t have the talent that we had in ‘07 and ‘04, but we have guys that are capable (of staying) focused and do the little things,” Ortiz said. This time, they were Boston Strong - playing for and trying to comfort a city shaken by the marathon tragedy. “We’ve dealt with a lot,” Dustin Pedroia said. “But our team came together.” After late-season slumps in 2010 and 2011, the embarrassing revelations of a chicken-and-beer clubhouse culture that contributed to the ouster of manager Terry Francona, and the daily tumult of Bobby Valentine’s oneyear flop, these Red Sox grew on fans. Just like the long whiskers on the players’ faces, starting with

Gomes’ scruffy spring training beard. “As soon as we went to Fort Myers, the movie’s already been written,” Gomes said. “All we had to do was press play, and this is what happened.” The only player remaining from the 2004 champs, Ortiz had himself a Ruthian World Series. He batted .688 (11 for 16) with two homers, six RBIs and eight walks - including four in the finale - for a .760 onbase percentage in 25 plate appearances, the second-highest in Series history. Even slumping Stephen Drew delivered a big hit in Game 6, sending Wacha’s first pitch of the fourth into the right-centre bullpen for a 4-0 lead. By the time the inning was over, RBI singles by Mike Napoli and Victorino had made it 6-0, and the Red Sox were on their way. “Hey, I missed two games. It’s time to shine,” Victorino said. All over New England, from Connecticut’s Housatonic River up to the Aroostook in Maine, Boston’s eighth championship can be remembered for the beard-yanking bonding. Fans bid up the average ticket price to over $1,000 on the resale market and some prime locations went for more

Canada beats South Korea in soccer friendly Dean Bennet t Canadian Press

EDMONTON - Christine Sinclair, Brittany Timko, and Adriana Leon scored but goalkeeper Erin McLeod saved the game Wednesday as Canada’s national women’s team beat South Korea 3-0 in a friendly at Commonwealth Stadium. McLeod, playing in front of a hometown crowd, made five leaping or diving saves off bullet drives in the first half to hold off a South Korean team that held the edge in play but couldn’t finish. In the space of three minutes McLeod stopped two shots from Korean forward So Yun Ji. At the 32-minute mark Ji curled a shot around the wall on a free kick toward the lower corner that a diving McLeod just got a hand on to direct away. Three minutes later she went vertical to get her fingertips on a Ji blast from 25 feet out. “She’s a phenomenal player,” McLeod said of Ji. “She tried to catch me off

guard a few times. “They did well in our end and we did well to keep them at zero.” Canada struggled in the first half to get the ball up to striker Sinclair on a chilly night before 12,746 fans. Canada didn’t get its first shot on net until the 18-minute mark. But when the Canadians found the net, they made the most of it. Sinclair opened the scoring in the 23rd minute, heading a Diana Matheson corner kick off the far goalpost past Korean keeper Min Kyung Jun. Canada scored again at the 39th minute on a tic-tac-toe play that began when Matheson lobbed the ball in front of the net. Defender Carmelina Moscato flicked it to Melissa Busque, who headed the ball into the path of Timko, who then kicked the ball in from in close. Forward Adriana Leon took a pass from Kaylyn Kyle from 10 feet out and directed a low shot past Jun to make it 3-0 at the

69-minute mark. Stephanie Labbe replaced McLeod in the second half. McLeod said the win was gratifying given the team is just getting back together after a long break. “We’re not game fit. We’ve come off a month and a half break, so I think the last 20 minutes of the game I think we showed the most character, staying compact.” Head coach John Herdman said the team played well considering the long layoff, but said McLeod came through when it counted. “What a goalkeeper. Arguably the best in the world,” he said. “(The Koreans) deserved a goal or two. It could’ve been a closer match. I suggest we’ve still got a little work to do. “In the flanks and the wide areas we looked a little sloppy at times. “The Koreans were technically brilliant at times. That’s what we’re aspiring to.”

Nearly all the Red Sox rooters stood in place for 30 minutes after the final out to view the presentation of the trophy and MVP award. A few thousand remained when a beaming Ortiz came back on the field with his son 75 minutes after the final out. “It was an awesome atmosphere here tonight,” Lackey said. The win capped an emotional season for the Red Sox, one heavy with the memory of the

events that unfolded on Patriots Day, when three people were killed and more than 260 wounded in bombing attacks at the Boston Marathon.

here in Boston,” Farrell said. “And it became a connection initially, the way our guys reached out to individuals or to hospital visits. And it continued to build throughout the course of the season. I think our fans, they got to a point where they appreciated the way we played the game, how they cared for one another. And in return they gave these guys an incredible amount of energy to thrive on in this ballpark.”

Hesjedal says he ‘chose the wrong path’ amid doping allegations C anadian Press

TORONTO - Star Canadian cyclist Ryder Hesjedal says he “chose the wrong path” after reports emerged Wednesday that suggested he was involved in doping. Excerpts from a new book by former Danish rider Michael Rasmussen say Hesjedal was shown how to use performance-enhancing drugs at the start of his career. “And even though those mistakes happened more than 10 years ago, and they were short-lived, it does not change the fact that I made them and I have lived with that and been sorry for it ever since,” Hesjedal said in the statement. Hesjedal did not explicitly say he took performance-enhancing drugs, but in the contrite statement he apologized to fans, sponsors and other cyclists. “To everyone in my life, inside and outside the sport, to those that have supported me and

my dreams - including my friends, my family, the media, fans, my peers, sponsors - to riders who didn’t make the same choices as me all those years ago, I sincerely apologize for my part in the dark past of the sport. I will always be sorry,” he said. Excerpts of Rasmussen’s autobiography “Yellow Fever,” released Wednesday in Danish newspaper “Politiken,” claim that Rasmussen taught Hesjedal and fellow Canadian cyclists Seamus McGrath and Chris Sheppard how to use EPO, a banned substance used in blood doping, in 2003 when Hesjedal was a young mountain bike racer. Rasmussen did not claim he ever saw any of the Canadians actually take EPO or any other banned substance. Neither Sheppard nor McGrath could be immediately reached for comment on the allegations, which have not been verified by The Canadian Press.

A Cycling Canada spokesman said he didn’t know where they could be reached. According to cyclingnews. com, Sheppard tested positive for EPO in 2005 and was banned for two years by the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport. Rasmussen, a climbing specialist and veteran of four Tour de France races, admitted in January to using performance-enhancing drugs throughout most of his career. Hesjedal switched

from mountain bike to road racing and won the Giro d’Italia last year to become the first Canadian to win a major European tour event. The 21day grind through Italy’s mountains, valleys and coastlines is one of the world’s three Grand Tour races. The Garmin-Sharp rider battled injuries this past year. He broke a rib in a Stage 1 crash at the Tour de France but soldiered on and finished 70th. Hesjedal had to withdraw from the Tour de

Suisse after crashing out in the early stages and a virus prematurely ended his bid to defend his Giro title. A three-time Olympian, the Victoria rider finished sixth at the 2010 Tour de France. Hesjedal, 32, won the Lionel Conacher Award last year as The Canadian Press male athlete of the year. “I believe that being truthful will help the sport continue to move forward, and over a year ago when I was contacted by anti-doping au-

thorities, I was open and honest about my past,” Hesjedal said. “I have seen the best and the worst of the sport and I believe that it is now in the best place it’s ever been. “I look at young riders on our team and throughout the peloton, and I know the future of the sport has arrived. I’m glad that they didn’t have to make the same choices I did, and I will do everything I can to continue to help the sport that I love.” In a statement, Cy-

cling Canada said it was “concerned by the allegations.” “Cycling Canada has always taken a strong stance against doping and we wish to reiterate that doping has no place in our sport,” the statment said. “Those that break the rules will be punished to the fullest extent allowed by the anti-doping regulations.” Hesjedal won’t be subject to sanctions because there is an eightyear statute of limitations under World Anti-Doping Agency rules.

Records up for grabs as Stampeders close out season Donna Spencer Canadian Press

CALGARY - The Calgary Stampeders’ regular-season finale is an odd mix. The result has no significance in the standings or playoff implications, but head coach John Hufnagel faces a balancing act as he tries to prepare his charges for the post-season, while giving some players a chance to set remark-

able records. The Stampeders (14-3) close out the regular season in Vancouver against the B.C. Lions on Friday. Calgary secured first place in the CFL’s West Division with a 29-25 win over the Saskatchewan Roughriders last Saturday. Calgary hosts the division final Nov. 17. After Friday’s game, the Stampeders benefit from a few days of rest that di-

vision semifinalists Saskatchewan and B.C. won’t get as they prepare for their playoff game Nov. 10 in Regina. Hufnagel wants to put every player he takes to Vancouver on the field Friday to ensure they are all ready for the post-season. That includes the three quarterbacks Kevin Glenn, Drew Tate and Bo Levi Mitchell. Hufnagel has said Glenn

will start, but his plan is for each man to take multiple snaps. Then there are the Stampeders looking to set personal milestones. Running back Jon Cornish is just under a 100 yards from breaking a franchise record for single-season rushing yards held by Willie Burden since 1975. Defensive end Charleston Hughes is two sacks from a club record 20.

Grants available for projects that support social well-being January 9 deadline for CBT’s Social Grants Program Submitted


The Silk Road through Asia has many captivating scenes, which will be shown at a travelogue on November 13.

Travelling the Silk Road Townsman Staff

On Wednesday, November 13 at 7 p.m., the GoGo Grannies will host a new travelogue by Russell and Sylvia Reid, “Traveling the Silk Road”. “Come join us as we show slides and tell some short sto-

ries about our travels, recapturing the Silk Road in Marco Polo’s footsteps,” said the Reids. “Our truck did a 26,000 kilometres adventure from London, England to Singapore, in just under six months. But we will concentrate our

pictures from Turkey through six Stans (i.e. Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, etc.)  onto China down to Malaysia, taking you from high mountains to the deserts and then to lush green countryside. “Come see and hear about our travels through our cam-

era lens.” The travelogue is a fundraiser for the Stephen Lewis Foundation. It will be held in the College of the Rockies lecture theatre. Admission is by donation. For more information, call Norma at 250-426-6111.

Groups with projects that support social well-being and address social issues in Basin communities are invited to apply to Columbia Basin Trust’s (CBT’s) Social Grants Program. The deadline is January 9, 2014. After considering input from socially focused groups, CBT has adjusted this third intake of the three-year pilot program in two key ways: 1) the program will now have one intake per year (with $1 million in funding available) and 2) there will be increased support available to applicants in developing projects and moving through the application process. “We received feedback that applicants would like more support and guidance, which we’re pleased we can now provide,” said Sabrina Curtis, CBT Director, Sector Initiatives. “Plus a larger volume of funds available in a single intake will help ensure that more applicants with strong projects that are ready to move forward will receive funding when they need it.” CBT is committing increased resources to

help applicants determine which projects are eligible for the program, discuss projects with them and guide them through the application process. The January 9 deadline means groups have over two months to work with CBT to prepare their applications. Groups interested in applying should contact CBT to access support from a Social Grants Program advisor. Granting decisions are made by the Social Grants Program Selection Committee, a volunteer group of Basin residents that includes individuals who have experience and expertise in the social sector and individuals who have broader community development experience. For more information about the program, and to download guidelines and the application form, visit www.cbt. org/sgp. CBT supports efforts to deliver social, economic and environmental benefits to the residents of the Columbia Basin. To learn more about CBT programs and initiatives, visit or call 1.800.505.8998.

15 people arrested in Nelson drug sting Greg Nesteroff Nelson Star

The Nelson Police Department has arrested 15 alleged drug dealers following an undercover project intended to “determine the scope and extent” of drug use and trafficking in the community. Police say during the operation, officers from the BC municipal undercover program bought or seized marijuana, cocaine, ketamine, GHB, ecstacy, morphine, and methamphetamines. Three vehicles were also seized through the civil forfeiture process. Since the operation ended, police have shared the information they gathered with other agencies for fur-

ther investigation, chief Wayne Holland said. Other suspects have also been identified. Some of those arrested have already pled guilty and are serving jail time. However, Holland declined to release their names or give specifics of their sentences for fear of prejudicing other cases still before the courts. Holland wouldn’t confirm whether the suspects had previous convictions, but said all were local residents. While they didn’t necessarily work together, they would have been familiar with one another, he added. “Often one trafficker, if asked for something they don’t have, would

steer a person to another trafficker. They may work in isolation and not necessarily act as an organized group, but definitely know each other.” He said the undercover operation followed up on suspicions that substances in Nelson are more potent and dangerous, including synthetic or designer drugs. “Police always gauge drug sales and transactions in a community. That’s normal,” he said. “The difference is that this time we saw far more designer drugs of a greater variety. You just don’t know what these are comprised of. We’re coming across people in medical distress because of them.

It’s not a pretty sight.” Holland asked citizens, especially parents and teachers, to be on the lookout for the drugs in question and warn their children and students about them. While they were not surprised by the level of drug trafficking in the community, Holland said they never expected to arrest so many accused traffickers. Working with federal crown counsel, he said police tried to make as many purchases as they could in the greatest amounts before deciding who to arrest. “It took a few days to round them up, but we got everybody,” he said. “None knew they had sold to police officers.”

Kootenay Concert Connection in association with the City of Cranbrook proudly presents...

Asked whether the arrests would make a dent in the local drug trade, Holland replied:

“Word is it’s more difficult to buy some drugs in Nelson right now. We hope that’s so but want

to send a message to [dealers] that we’re onto them and not going to let up.”

Atamanenko says he’ll retire in 2015 Nelson Star

After three terms in office, NDP MP Alex Atamanenko has announced that he will not be running in the next election. “I’ve been proud to serve the people of BC Southern Interior,” Atamanenko said in a statement to media. “As I look ahead to retirement in two years, I’d like to thank my constituents for electing me to represent their interests in Ottawa. “ Atamanenko has served the people of BC Southern Interior since his election in 2006. In that time, he has held several critic portfolios, including Food Security, Rural Affairs, and Agriculture. “I’d like to thank Alex

Southern Interior MP Alex Atamanenko for his contributions to our caucus and our movement,” said NDP leader Tom Mulcair. “He has been a great repre-

sentative for BC Southern Interior.” The next federal election is expected in 2015.

Judy Collins F

Nov 6 at 7:30

or the past 50 years Judy Collins has thrilled audiences worldwide with her unique blend of interpretative folksongs and contemporary themes. Originally trained in classic piano Judy Collins made her public debut performing Mozart’s Concerto for Two Pianos at the age of 13. But it was her father’s introduction to a wide variety of artist including Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger that eventually sparked Judy’s love of lyrics. In 1961, Judy Collins released her first album, A Maid of Constant Sorrow and began a thirty-five year association with Jac Holzman and Elektra Records. Over the next 50 years Judy released 49 albums often interpreting songs of fellow artists including the social poets of her time Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs and Tom Paxton. In 1968 Judy Collins released her Wildflowers album which won a Grammy for her rendition of Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” and was subsequently entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame. In 1975 Judy’s version of “Send in the Clowns” a ballad written by Stephen Sondheim won song of the year at the Grammy awards. Judy has continued an impressive musical career with an extensive catalog from every decade throughout the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and up to the present. Now 71, Judy Collins continues to create music of hope and healing that lights up the world and speaks to the heart.

code that is applicable for each specified foreign property, the maximum and yearend cost amounts of the property, the income or loss, and capital gains realized from each property during the taxation year. The web-based fillable form contains tables that are expandable based on the number of properties to be reported for the taxation year. Revised Form T1135 excludes certain property from the detailed reporting requirement. The reporting exclusion provides that where the taxpayer has received a T3 or T5 from a Canadian issuer in respect of a particular specified foreign property, the details of that particular specified foreign property do not have to

be disclosed in one of the tables on Form T1135. Whether the reporting exclusion applies must be determined for each specified foreign property and for each taxation year during which the property was held. For example, if there are numerous properties held in one investment account, only those properties for which a T3 or T5 was issued for a particular taxation year would be subject to the reporting exclusion in that particular year. A specific property may be subject to the reporting exclusion in one year and not in another year depending on whether it earned income for which a T3 or T5 was issued. The taxpayer is still required to file Form T1135 by the filing due date even if a T3 or T5 was issued in respect of all specified foreign property held during the taxation year. In this case, the taxpayer would complete the identification information and check the reporting exclusion box on Form T1135. The reporting exclusion is administrative and is not contained in the applicable provisions of the Income Tax Act.

The Revised Form T1135 applies to 2013 and subsequent taxation years. The new Form was released on June 25, 2013 and applies to taxation years ending after June 30, 2013. Form T1135 must be filed with the CRA on or before the filing due date of the related tax return in the case of a personal tax return, a corporate tax return, or a trust tax return, or the filing due date of the T5013 Partnership Information Return in the case of a partnership. The old Form T1135 will still be accepted for taxation years that ended prior to July 1, 2013. Information to be reported on the new form for each specified foreign property: • The name of the specific foreign institution, investment or other entity holding funds outside Canada. • The specific country to which the foreign property relates. • The cost of the property at the end of the year, the highest cost amount during the year and the income or gains generated from the foreign property,

Boat motor stolen from children’s camp Nelson Star

Police are investigating the theft of a boat motor from Camp Koolaree. On Wednesday, October 23, two volunteers for the camp showed up at McDonald’s Landing  to go over and make repairs during the off-season. When they arrived they discovered the motor was missing from the camp’s boat. The 25 horse power motor, which was locked to the small aluminum boat with a cable, had last been used by camp volunteers on Friday, October 11. The boat was due to be taken out of the water for winter storage this weekend.  Another user of the public dock says he had noticed the motor was gone off the boat a few days earlier but no one is sure exactly when

the motor went missing. The eight year-old motor had been serving the camp mainly for transporting luggage and supplies across to Camp Koolaree, which is accessible only by boat or by a twohour hike on foot. The motor cost nearly $4,000 new, however with depreciation, it is unlikely the camp will see any insurance money towards its replacement after the insurance deductible is met.

New Alberta bill on regional planning could toss dissenters in jail Dean Bennet t Canadian Press

EDMONTON — Alberta Premier Alison Redford defended Wednesday a new regional planning bill she says will help municipalities, but opposition leaders say the legislation will gut local authority and could be used to jail dissenting municipal elected leaders. “This will change the relationship between municipalities and the provincial government for the better because we have modern communities with strong leaders that want to build Alberta just like us,” Redford told the legislature, referring to Bill 28, the Modernizing Regional Governance Act. The proposed legislation would give Redford’s cabinet the authority to set up growth boards to address the

shared needs of municipalities clustered close together. Cabinet would have the right to decide the geographic boundaries of the growth boards, who sits on them, who will run them, what the voting breakdown will be, and what their mandates will be. Any bylaw decisions made by the growth boards must be approved by the municipal affairs minister. The decisions of the growth boards would be binding, and no municipality would be allowed to pass laws or build anything that contravenes the board’s decisions. Elected officials who refuse to co-operate and provide paperwork asked for by the boards would be subject to a maximum $10,000 fine or one year in jail. Wildrose leader Dan-

ielle Smith called the bill a blindside attack on municipal councils just getting down to business after recent elections. “It strips local municipalities of power, and it has some of the most draconian provisions I’ve ever seen,” said Smith. “I don’t know what mayor or reeves they were consulting with, but I cannot imagine mayors and reeves and councils were saying that if they didn’t follow provincial law and they didn’t follow what the PC appointees on these councils wanted to do that they would be forced to either go to jail or pay huge fines.” NDP Leader Brian Mason agreed. “It’s to give control to the provincial government over the activities of municipalities when they choose to use it.”

Scientists may be able to forecast heat waves weeks in advance ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — Meteorologists may have found a way to predict some killer heat waves up to three weeks in advance. Now, the best they can do is about 10 days. An earlier warning would help cities prepare for the heat wave, arrange to open up cooling centres and check on the elderly, said Gerald Meehl, co-author of a study that describes the forecasting clue. “It gives you a little bit of a heads up of what’s coming,” he said. The key may be a certain pattern of high and low pressure spots across the globe high in the sky. When that pattern shows up,

the chances double for a prolonged and intense heat wave in the eastern two-thirds of the United States, according to the study published Sunday in the journal Nature Geoscience. This could predict some types of heat waves but not all, meteorologists said. The study’s authors said they think the pattern occurred before last year’s heat wave in much of the central United States, but they still need more work to confirm it. The researchers at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colo., looked at heat waves that lasted at least a week and were about 5 to 8 degrees warmer than normal. In any given summer week, the

odds of a heat wave like this happening are usually only about 1 in 67 in the U.S. They did thousands of computer simulations and discovered that when high pressure and low pressure systems line up in a specific pattern, it foreshadows heat to come in about 15 to 20 days. Scientists call this 4-mile-high pattern wave No. 5. The weather on the ground at the time of the pattern really doesn’t matter; it can be rainy, dry, hot or cold, said study lead author Haiyan Teng, a scientist at the research centre. The same pattern that signals a U.S. heat wave also indicates different extreme weather in other parts of the globe, like heavy rains.

Peak trash spells danger for world’s environment: Research Alberta mom wants answers after son Bob Weber Canadian Press

Forget about peak oil. An Ontario researcher says the real concern facing the planet should be peak trash. “Solid waste is an incredibly useful proxy for total global impact,” said Daniel Hoornweg of the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, who published a commentary on the issue in Wednesday’s edition of the science journal Nature. “This paper is basically saying that we’re on track to triple the impact — the global damage — to the planet. Arguably, the planet’s having a pretty hard time today dealing with the damage that we’re inflicting on it.” Hoornweg says the amount of garbage a society generates depends to a large extent on how rich its members are. As wealth grows, so does trash — up to a

point where garbage per capita tends to level out no matter how much richer everyone gets. That’s because people tend to shift from buying stuff, which creates trash, to buying experiences, which doesn’t. As well, wealthy societies tend to curb their waste, Hoornweg writes. While North American and European cities have already reached that point, global trash growth is now being powered by rising wealth in the cities of Asia. Eventually, African cities will be the driver. Hoornweg says the 2.9 billion people living in cities generated three million tonnes of solid waste a day. By 2025, it will be double that — enough to fill a line of garbage trucks 5,000 kilometres long. Just as peak oil theorists suggest that oil production will eventually reach a maximum, Hoornweg says the same thing will happen to

trash. The problem is not so much the garbage itself, said Hoornweg, but the resources used to create that much trash. “It’s not so much the environmental impact of that collection and disposal. It’s much more what that represents upstream — how many trees were cut, how many rivers were polluted, how much energy went into all of that waste.” Using United Nations calculations on how much impact the planet can stand, Hoornweg figures peak trash needs to happen by 2075. The answer isn’t to curb urban growth, he said. Cities can actually be more environmentally friendly than rural areas. Besides, urban growth is likely unstoppable. Too much inequity, he said, creates instability.

left on school bus in sub-zero weather C ANADIAN PRESS

EDMONTON — An Edmonton-area mom wants answers after her nine-year-old son was left alone on a school bus for several hours in frigid weather. Colby Fennell, who lives in Sturgeon County, north of Edmonton, was on the bus on the way to Namao school earlier this week when he fell asleep. Two hours later, Colby woke up, alone, inside the bus that was parked in an area he didn’t recognize and the temperature was -8C. Colby’s mother, Diane Kimmy, told CTV Edmonton that she was

told the bus driver parked at her own home in Cardiff, eight kilometres away. Kimmy said her son was too embarrassed to leave the bus, even when he thought he saw the bus driver leave in another vehicle. The school principal says the incident is under review. “I personally have apologized, and so has our transportation department, we are going forward from there, we certainly do not want this to occur again as well,” said Vernice Pollmann. The principal said she was telling other parents what hap-

pened in a letter sent home Wednesday. Kimmy is angry her son was forgotten. “If I did that to him, left him outside all day, I would be in jail,” Kimmy said. She said the school called to tell her Colby wasn’t in class. “I said to them, `I put him on the bus, could you check again?’ And then they called back about five minutes later and said, `He’s here, don’t worry’,” Kimmy said. Kimmy said her son doesn’t want to take the bus again and she’s not sure if her son will return to the school.

Sparwood Council approves $1 million for seniors complex Jenna Jensen Fernie Free Press

In one of the most emotional moments to be witnessed by Sparwood Council, shouts of joy and tears of happiness flowed from the gallery as Council unanimously approved a one million dollar donation to Lilac Terrace, allowing them to begin a much anticipated and hoped for expansion. With only three days to spare the impending deadline of October 31, members of the Lilac Terrace Board and attending general public held their breath as Council made their final decision during a Special Meeting held on October 28. Not new to the delegations, the Lilac Terrace administrator Deborah Friesen and board members have been to Council on several occasions in the past

Sparwood Seniors celebrate with Lilac Terrace Administrator Deborah Friesen as they hear the news that the Lilac Terrace expansion will move forward. month in an effort to secure the funding, but have been deferred on all occasions until the Special Meeting in hopes other promising

funding sources would come through. When no alternate guaranteed funders were recognized, Council determined it was the

District who would guarantee the million dollars allowing the project to move forward, while noting that their financial contribution could be decreased by fundraising as well as other donations that come through in the months ahead. Riding on this decision was years of hard work by the Lilac Terrace Board. “We have been looking at expansion since 2004 and in June we applied for a grant through B.C. Housing and Columbia Basin Trust requesting one million dollars, and received notice of intent to proceed upon conditions of us having confirmation of a one million dollar commitment of our own,” said Friesen. “With the approval from Council we are now able to move forward into a stage called the provi-

sional project application where we will work with a B.C. Housing Project Officer to finalize details and drawings.” The expansion to the west end of the building will include 12 more apartments, similar to those currently at Lilac Terrace as well as two more community rooms, which will be used for palliative or respite care. “This is really amazing to see. Since the hospital closed, there has not been any palliative or respite care options in Sparwood,” said Friesen. “We have been through many situations where families have had to go out of town and seniors have desperately wished to spend the remainder of their lives in their home and now we are finally able to offer this service to our community.”

Journalist at centre of John Furlong case fires back James Keller Canadian Press

VANCOUVER — The freelance journalist who first wrote about abuse allegations involving former Vancouver Olympic CEO John Furlong insists it is her, not Furlong, whose reputation has been unfairly damaged, and she says she’s eager to defend herself in court. Laura Robinson wrote an article in the Georgia Straight newspaper last year that alleged Furlong verbally and physically abused students while he was a teacher in northern B.C. in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The article prompted Furlong to sue Robinson and the paper for libel. Since the story, three people who claim to be former students, including at least one who appeared in Robinson’s original article, filed lawsuits containing explosive allegations of physical and sexual abuse. Furlong went on the offensive this week in a series of media interviews, categorically denying any wrongdoing and casting Robinson as a vindictive activist who has published false allegations as part of a personal vendetta against him. Robinson says in a

statement Wednesday that Furlong’s fierce criticism of her, especially during what she described as the “onslaught’’ of interviews he participated in this week, has been unfair. “I value my hardearned reputation as a freelance investigative journalist,’’ Robinson says in the statement released by her lawyer. “My personal reputation, my reputation as a journalist, and my ability to earn a living have been seriously damaged by Mr. Furlong’s vindictive personal attacks.’’ Robinson says she stands by her original article and she urged Furlong to take the steps necessary to bring the case to trial quickly. Robinson says her

lawyers will file a motion to have the case dismissed “for want of prosecution’’ and to have portions of Furlong’s statement of claim that “attack me personally and professionally’’ struck out. Furlong said in interviews this week that the RCMP “cleared my name,’’ pointing to a letter he received from the police in April that said investigators found no evidence to substantiate allegations by one of the complainants. The RCMP said this week the case “remains open,’’ which Furlong said he could not explain. Robinson seized on the apparent discrepancy in her statement. Furlong’s lawyer,

John Hunter, could not be reached for comment on Robinson’s statement. During his media blitz, Furlong said he

would be “escalating’’ his lawsuit against Robinson, while dropping his claims against the Georgia Straight newspaper.

Okanagan compost facility will ease burden on landfills Joe Fries Penticton Western News

An estimated 17,000 tonnes of organic material could be diverted from regional landfills with the creation of new composting facilities that could be in operation in as little as four years. Building one or more composting sites was a key recommendation in the solid waste management plan adopted in 2011 by the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen (RDOS). The plan estimates organic material, such as biosolids, food and yard waste, accounts for 40 per cent of the approximately 66,000 tonnes of trash that go into regional landfills every year. It also pegs the capi-

na to handle organic matter from the communities’ sewage treatment plants. In April, the two municipalities agreed to spend $425,000 for a new system to make more water available to the plant to help eliminate smells. “It was originally felt through an environmental assessment that the technology that was proposed at the time would be sufficient, but as it turns out it was not,” explained Gordon Light, biosolids supervisor for the City of Kelowna.

Now, however, those issues “have been addressed and I believe we have a very well-run facility today,” said Light. “The benefit is so much better than putting (organic waste) in a landfill or burying it and consuming valuable landfill space and creating methane gas,” he said. The Kelowna-Vernon facility also produces OgoGrow fertilizer, which Light said generates annual revenue of nearly $500,000 that covers about a quarter of the site’s operating costs.

Damage to southwestern B.C. buildings, roads, pipelines and other critical infrastructure could hit $75 billion in a major earthquake, according to a new study. The 345-page report  commissioned by the Insurance Bureau of Canada modelled a 9.0-magnitude subduction zone earthquake well off the west coast of Vancouver Island and

Washington State. The strongest ground shaking and damage levels would be on the western side of Vancouver Island closest to the epicentre. But the report projects more overall damage in Victoria due to its many older, vulnerable buildings, as well as in the Lower Mainland from moderate shaking because of the sheer number of buildings and infrastructure at risk.

The report says lowlands with risky soil types could see significant damage from ground liquefaction, causing buildings to settle, tilt or slide. It also cautions ground failure from liquefaction can also have a “great impact” on roads, freeways, bridges and buried pipelines. Some dikes around the Fraser River delta area may also be affected, compromising their ability to prevent flood-

ing if a tsunami wave also arrives at high tide. The report predicts some roads will be damaged and impassable, water supply and other buried services will be compromised and drivers should expect many bridges to be temporarily closed, if only for a few hours to check for damage that may be slight in most cases. Vancouver International Airport would likely be cut off by road in the first few days due to the shutdown of access bridges. The study predicts a resulting tsunami would cause the greatest damage from flooding along the west coast of Vancouver Island, but waves of up to one metre above normal could also reach some Metro Vancouver shorelines. The report says some residential buildings in west Richmond could experience substantial tsunami damage. Earthquake-triggered landslides are a high risk along parts of western Vancouver Island, it says. And the findings suggest firefighters in Victoria and Metro Vancouver will battle intense local fires, possibly spreading from block to block. Those fires may not ignite immediately, but later, as power transmission is restored and electricity is turned back on in damaged areas.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Whether you’re putting out some final Halloween decorations or you’re just happy to get extra R and R, it makes no difference; others could be touchy at the last minute. If you decide not to participate in an aspect of Halloween, make it OK. Tonight: Whatever knocks your socks off. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You don’t need to go overboard in order to be noticed. You will do that naturally -- just be yourself. Pressure or a desire for change might cause a profound dissatisfaction or a need for change. The unexpected could throw your plans into chaos. Tonight: Celebrate in your own way. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Try a different approach to a heartfelt matter. You will be more willing than you have been in the past to let go and see where the chips may fall. You can be controlling at times, and you might be starting to see the uselessness of that behavior. Tonight: Treat yourself well. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)


Try to come to an understanding with someone who has been difficult at best. You could feel challenged by a personal or domestic matter, though you might not be in the mood to discuss the issue. Your nerves could be fried. Indulge yourself. Tonight: Everyone looks to you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You might not be in sync with those around you. Even if you wish you were more playful, you can’t seem to get past your tension and stress. A loved one or a child might surprise you, though your first reaction could be shock. Tonight: If you want to avoid everyone, do. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Look to your friends, and make a decision about what would be the best solution for a project. Just because your friends feel OK with something, it does not mean you have to feel comfortable with it. Say “no” if you can’t go along. Tonight: Get into tricking or treating. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Keep reaching out to someone at a distance. It doesn’t matter

what your reasoning might be regarding an issue, you are ready to move forward with a major change. It might be health-related, or it might be taking a different approach to your life. Tonight: Look at the big picture. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You will have your mind on other matters -- not on ghosts and goblins. Still, you will go through all the motions, and to many people, you will seem present in the moment. An exciting matter could shake up the status quo. Tonight: Get into the spirit of the holiday. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Defer to others, and you might learn a lot about someone else’s thoughts. You will get much more input, and you’ll gain each other’s respect. It would not be surprising to see both of you get into a brainstorming session in the near future. Tonight: Try to make time for a talk.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: My fiance is amazing, sensitive and wonderful. The only problem is his sister. When we became engaged, “Jessie” was so jealous, her mother begged us to make her my maid of honor. I did, to keep the peace. I’ve spoken with Jessie a handful of times and don’t particularly like her. She’s 29, gets a monthly allowance from her parents because she lives beyond her means, and threatens to withhold her young son from my fiance and his parents when they won’t give her what she wants. We told Jessie she could help with the wedding plans, but then she had a total meltdown and lashed out at my fiance and his mom. We then informed her that she cannot come to the wedding unless she apologizes. This has resulted in my not being allowed near her son. My future mother-in-law is trying to force us to invite her, saying, “I promise to keep her under control so she won’t wreck the wedding.” The fact that she needs to say that makes me very nervous. My fiance isn’t close to his sister and is tired of her behavior. I don’t want her at my wedding because she’s been so rude to both of us, but I’d accept her if she apologized. Do you think we should hold out and hope? It is our wedding. Can’t we do what we want? -- The Bride Dear Bride: Well, yes and no. Weddings represent the joining of families and, as such, should not become grudge matches. Demanding an apology from Jessie is an exercise in futility. She would rather create ill will than admit wrongdoing, and not being allowed to attend the wedding will fuel her fire for years to come. She could use some professional counseling. Meanwhile, consider the long-term repercussions of excluding her. And if you decide to forgive her, don’t rely on Jessie’s mother to rein her in. Ask a few friends to keep her in check, or hire someone to discreetly escort her out if she creates a scene. Dear Annie: A number of years ago, I saw an old ad from the 1800s in a book on soap making. The ad said that this particular brand of soap could be used for everything from washing your clothes to cleaning floors and brushing teeth. This apparently was before toothpaste was invented. Is this where the expression “washing your mouth out with soap” came from? -- Grandma Dear Grandma: We doubt it. While some folks may have used soap to brush their teeth, it wasn’t necessary. Toothpaste in one form or another has been around since before the Romans. It was supposed to have a pleasant taste, or at least be tolerable. Soap was never meant to be ingested. Some soaps contain ingredients that are harmful to the mouth, throat or stomach lining. Washing one’s mouth out with soap is a specific punishment, usually in response to using profanity or other inappropriate language. We know parents used to do this, although we don’t recommend it. Thanks for providing an offbeat topic. Dear Annie: I read “Hermitage, Penn’s” diatribe about the elderly white-haired man who rudely butted ahead of her at the grocery store. Maybe he wasn’t feeling well and had to get out of the store quickly. He’s not going to say, “Excuse me, madam, but I am about to have an accident. May I go ahead of you, please?” I found Hermitage’s reaction to be insensitive and downright mean, a common trend in our young people today. -- Judy from Omaha Dear Judy: There is no excuse to jump ahead of someone without at least saying, “Excuse me.” That is simple courtesy, regardless of age. Dear Readers: Happy Halloween. Please dress your trick-or-treaters in flame-retardant costumes that don’t obstruct walking or vision, and be sure to accompany them.

The main clock tower at UBC’s Vancouver campus. Six sexual assaults have been reported in recent weeks.

UBC: 6 sexual assaults likely have same suspect, say police Kolby Solinsky BC Local News

Six recent sexual assaults at the University of British Columbia appear to be linked by the same culprit, police said on Tuesday. “(They) appear to be related and are likely to have been committed by the same suspect,” said Lower Mainland District RCMP spokesman Sgt. Peter Thiessen (CBC). The most recent reported attack occurred last Sunday – Oct. 27, 2013 – when a young woman was attacked by Gage Hall residence on Student Union Boulevard, around 1:30 a.m. PST. She was grabbed from behind and able to fend the attacker off. On the weekend of October 19, two other young women were assaulted late at night or early in the morning, and the suspect tried to drag one of the victims – a 17-yearold female student – into nearby

woods. Three attacks that first gained considerable attention occurred in a three-week period, starting in late September. All three women were groped under their skirt and were grabbed from behind. All three suspects in those cases – which could be the same man, according to today’s RCMP announcement – were described as tall white men with hoodies. After the attack on October 19, police said they were looking for a Caucasian man in his late 20s to early 30s, with a 6’2 height, thin build, and short hair. The first reported attack occurred on Sept. 28, 2013, around 2:45 a.m., when a 19-year-old student was grabbed from behind and groped on her genitalia (CTV News). The suspect wrapped his arm around her waist and tried to drag her into a garden area.

Growing population means another area code in Alberta C ANADIAN PRESS

EDMONTON — A growing population means some Albertans will be dialing a new area code in a few years. The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission says the 825 code may be assigned to new telephone numbers in the province starting in

April 2016. Existing customers will keep the area codes they have now. The province’s current codes are 403, 780 and 587. But the CRTC says they are expected to run out of telephone numbers by July 2016. Ten-digit local dialing became mandatory in Alberta four years ago.

Shrapnel from the bomb blast in Oliver. Two brothers have been arrested in connection with the explosion and are facing charges.

Brothers charged with South Okanagan bomb incident Kristi Pat ton Penticton Western News

Two brothers accused of a bombing that occurred in Oliver have been ordered for a psychiatric assessment. Stephan Wesley Daoust, 19, and Eric Daoust, 23, appeared at the Penticton provincial courthouse on Monday each facing a single count of placing/ throwing an explosive to damage property. The pair were ordered detained while a 30-day forensic psychiatric assessment is conducted at a Port Coquitlam hospital to determine if they are not criminally responsible due to a mental disorder. The alleged incident took place in August at a home on Earle Crescent and the brothers were arrested on Thursday following a two-month long investigation by Oliver RCMP and Penticton/South Okanagan Similkameen General Investigation Section. “Our findings into both associated matters indicate that the violence was targeted towards the young man who resided in the home where the car was damaged. All three knew each other and are Oliver residents. It appears that the matter stemmed from a mutual longstanding dislike for each other. Luckily no one was injured as a result.” said Cpl. Dan Moskaluk in a press release. The younger of the brothers, Stephan, is also charged with break and enter, possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose for an alleged incident that took place at the same home in the 600-block of Earle Crescent that was targeted in the explosion.

On Sept. 8 a woman inside the residence called RCMP complaining someone sprayed an irritating substance into her home. RCMP found a canister of bear spray, wrapped in electrical tape, in close proximity to the house. The explosion incident occurred on Aug. 11 and went unreported for a day as residents on Earle Crescent originally believed it to be a lightning strike. One resident who lives besides the home where the explosion went off  told the Penticton Western News her mother was jarred awake around 2 a.m. from a loud noise but thought it was thunder. The following day a resident attended the Oliver RCMP office with a piece of metal shrapnel that caused damage to a homeowners’ garage and a vehicle parked nearby. RCMP officers attended and examined the scene and determined that an improvised (homemade) explosive device had been placed and detonated under a vehicle parked in the residential alleyway between Okanagan Street and Earle Crescent. No one was injured in the blast however, close examination of the vehicle and a nearby homeowner’s garage uncovered damage by the blast and flying shrapnel. The metal fragment (18 centimetres in length and five cm in width) was found in the complainant’s garage after travelling at a sufficient velocity to go through the outside wall, splintering a two by four stud and coming to rest inside the garage.

It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Bill Barker. Bill was much loved by his family; daughters Heidi and Tracy (Carm), stepdaughters, Sherri (Randy) and Ardy (Pete), sisters Linda (Bob), and Noreen. He leaves behind his beloved grandchildren, Karlie, Shaelynn, Taylor, Brenden, Georgia, Jaiden, and Isaac; his niece Tracy, (Jack and Amelie) and nephew Randy (Claudia and Tomas). Bill was predeceased by his mother Vivian and father Bim. Bill was born in Edmonton, Alberta, June 2, 1943. Bill lived on the ranch at Ta Ta Creek as a boy; his adult years were spent in Kimberley and Cranbrook. Bill was an excellent horseman but most admired for his ability with heavy equipment.

Bill had many friends in his life who will no doubt miss his sense of humour and infectious laugh, his family certainly will. On October 22, 2013, Bill rode his mustang into the sunset – he was so very loved and will be sorely missed. A celebration of his life will be held spring 2014 outdoors in Cranbrook, under the trees and in the fresh air where Billl loved to be.

He received his early education at Whitgift Public School in London and completed two years of service in the Royal Air Force as a radar operator. During the summers and on weekends he worked as a junior clerk with his father at Fortnum and Mason’s Piccadilly Circus in London, UK. After obtaining employment with a finance company in London, he began planning to immigrate to Canada. In 1957 with a letter of recommendation in his hand from his former employer, he obtained employment in Toronto, Ontario. Very soon thereafter he was transferred to Vancouver and spent the rest of his time working with various finance companies in Vancouver, the West and East Kootenays and Kamloops. He opened the branch of the Bank Of Montreal in 1972 in Invermere and later returned to Cranbrook as the Manager of the Bank Of Montreal until his retirement in 1990. Michael was a very talented and gifted man. He spent endless hours at his workbench creating toys, miniature houses, RC aircraft and also spent many hours gardening with his wife Dolores. Mike and Dolores loved to travel. They took 13 trips to the UK and Europe, many trips to Hawaii, the western United Sates and various parts of Canada. Michael loved all sports particularly cricket, hockey, soccer and golf. He was a past president, Paul Harris Fellow and member of the Rotary Club for close to 47 years. Left to cherish Michael’s memory are his wife of 52 years Dolores; his two sons Steve (Brenda) Harris of Cranbrook and Bill Harris (Ghaile Pocock) of Calgary, Alberta; his grandson Owen Harris of Cranbrook, and granddaughter Julia (Corey) Halford of Airdrie, Alberta; great granddaughter Brooke Halford of Airdrie, Alberta; in England his brother John (Rhona) Harris and sister Judy Cowgill and nephew David (Jen) Harris; his sisterin-law Donna Kennelly of Cranbrook and numerous other nieces, nephews and cousins. Michael was predeceased by his parents Alfred and Lilian Harris and his stepmother Mary Harris. A memorial service for Michael was held on Wednesday, October 30, 2013 in Cranbrook at Christ Church Anglican. Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service.

BlackBerrys, weapons, cash top list of California high school bans items missing in federal inventory twerking dance CANADIAN PRESS

OTTAWA — Hundreds of weapons, BlackBerrys, laptops and iPads have gone missing or been stolen or destroyed, according to the federal government’s annual account-

ing of its property. And the Senate expense scandal is recorded in another obscure line item that cites a $315,000 loss involving four unidentified cases “due to claims for living allowance in the Na-

Eyeless shrimp added to list of endangered species ASSOCIATED PRES

HONOLULU — The federal government says an eyeless shrimp and 14 other Hawaii creatures and plants have been added to the endangered species list. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the anchialine pool shrimp is among the most primitive shrimp species in the world. The creatures live in landlocked pools with subterranean connections to the sea. The other newly listed creature is Drosophila digressa, commonly known as the picture-wing fly. Among the 13 plants listed is kookoolau. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service says it traditionally was used to treat infections. All 15 new listings are native to the Big Island. Fish and Wildlife Service spokesman Ken Foote says Hawaii has more endangered species than any other state. A listing gives species protections that are designed to keep them from extinction.

Earth-size planet found with rocky core like ours Marcia Dunn Associated Press

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Scientists have found a planet way out in the cosmos that’s close in size and content to Earth — an astronomical first. But this rocky world is so close to its sun that it’s almost certainly too hot for life. Astrophysicists reported Wednesday in the journal Nature that the exoplanet Kepler-78b appears to be made of rock and iron, just like Earth. They measured the planet’s mass to determine its density and content. It’s actually a little bigger than Earth and nearly double its mass, or weight. Kepler-78b is located in the Cygnus constellation hundreds of light-years away. Incredibly, it orbits its sun every 8 1/2 hours, a mystery to astronomers who doubt it could have formed or moved that close to a star. They agree the planet will be sucked up by the sun in a few billion years, so its time remaining, astronomically speaking, is short. More than 1,000 exoplanets — worlds outside our solar system — have been confirmed so far. NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope, used to discover Kepler-78b, has identified 3,500 more potential candidates. The telescope lost its precise pointing ability earlier this year, and NASA has given up trying to fix it. Scientific teams in the United States and Switzerland used ground observatories to measure Kepler-78b.

tional Capital Region and-or travel expenses.” The biggest reported losses are related to tax and employment-insurance frauds, amounting to millions of dollars. The missing money and absent items are outlined in an annual report to Parliament, tabled late Wednesday. The public accounts for 2012-2013 show the government expects to recover all of the improper Senate expenses, with $81,000 already paid back by last March. The list does not include any fraudulent claims discovered since April, and does not cite individual senators or break down the amounts of living or travel expenses improperly claimed. The amount of tax fraud, both income tax and GST, discovered in the last year is estimated at about $250 million, down from more than $300 million last year. But employment insurance fraud is up,

reaching about $159 million, or $30 million higher than the year before. The total number of EI fraud cases hit 113,000 in 2012-13, up 105,000 cases the year before. The government, which has especially targeted EI fraud, claims it will recover virtually all of the missing cash. The federal government also says it direct-deposited cash by error into individual accounts almost 7,500 times, for a total of $3 million, up from the year before. Federal accountants expect to write off about half a million dollars of the misdirected cash. The most common device reported lost or stolen is the BlackBerry, with iPads and laptops also frequently missing. The number of weapons reported stolen quadrupled from the year before, to almost 500, though the accounts do not specify

the types. The Defence Department has written off the entire $170,000 value. Another 2,100 undescribed weapons were lost, their value also entirely written off. The air force reported some $26 million in damages to two of its aircraft, again with no details offered. Altogether, some $200 million worth of federal property — from desks to boats — is listed as stolen, damaged or missing. The federal government also paid out more than $700 million in claims against the Crown in 2012-13, including a $29-million out-of-court settlement cheque from Industry Canada to an unidentified claimant. Public Works also settled with St. Joseph Print Group Inc. with a $21-million payment, with no details of the nature of the dispute.


ALISO VIEJO, Calif. — One Southern California high school has added twerking to its list of dances that are banned for students. The Orange County Register reports Tuesday that administrators at Aliso Niguel High School decided the rump-busting dance is sexually suggestive and should no longer be allowed on campus or at dances. Twerking now joins “freaking” and “grinding” as prohibited dances at the Orange County school. Those who break the rules could be ineligible for future dances for the remainder of the school year. Parents also will be notified. No other high schools in the Capistrano Unified School District say they have banned twerking. Twerking has gained recent popularity among teens thanks to pop star Miley Cyrus, but the dance has been around for a while.
