Local relief efforts for Philippines

Local Filipino community worried; ShelterBox asks for donations BARRY COULTER C AROLYN GR ANT

The Philippines is reeling after a devastating typhoon caused immense havoc on the country’s eastern shore last week. And local Filipino-Canadians are anxious and worried for family members, as communications are only just starting to come back on stream. Cranbrook resident Lourdes Roxas-Butalid, who is President of the Filipino-Canadian Association of the East Kootenay, said her hometown of Bogo was wiped out in the typhoon. Bogo is on the island province of Cebu. The northern part of Cebu, Roxas-Butalid said, sustained damage equivalent to the scenes from neighbouring Leyte

“We need your help now. Please make a donation today.” Graham Mann ShelterBox Ambassador and the city of Tacloban, whose images have dominated international news coverage of the disaster. “I only just talked to my mother Monday morning,” Roxas-Butalid said. “There was no communication for days. “It was so depressing to see. I was just there recently. I couldn’t sleep, worrying about friends, classmates, my family … I’ve read on Facebook how some of my friends are now homeless. One of my friend’s homes is just a skeleton. Another has had the roof torn off.” See TYPHOON, page 2

Doctor shortage a serious concern Hall of Fame for Jerry and Annie Kimberley couple Elected officials question Interior Health about step honoured for work to recruit family physicians to the East Kootenay with disabled SALLY MACDONALD tors to East Kootenay communiskiers Townsman Staff

Local elected officials are worried about people in the community who aren’t able to find a family doctor. The Kootenay East Regional Hospital District board of directors met with a representative of Interior Health Authority earlier this month to talk about what is being done to recruit family doc-

ties. During her presentation to the board on Friday, November 1, Dr. Peggy Yakimov began by going over physician vacancies around the region. Cranbrook is short two family doctors, while two more vacancies have recently be filled. A position in internal medicine has also been filled. See DOCTOR, page 4


The list of accolades for Jerry Johnston, the acknowledged builder of the sport of disabled skiing in Canada and around the world, includes the Order of Canada and the Paralympic Order. Every time Jerry re-

ceived one of these distinguished honours, the person leading the applause was wife Annie. But this month, Annie stood beside Jerry to receive an honour as they were both inducted into the Canadian Disability Hall of Fame. The Canadian Disability Hall of Fame is a tribute to the life and ties of the remarkable individuals who have played a part in the historic campaign to change the way we think about physical disability. Jerry and Annie John-

ston have certainly done that, and as Kimberley welcomes disabled skiers each year to train and race at the Kimberley Alpine Resort, it is important to remember that without the Johnston’s work, most of those skiers would not be doing what they are today. Jerry says it was especially gratifying that Annie was honoured as well seeing as she has been such a part of his entire career in building the sport of disabled skiing. “I was the idea man, she put it all together,” he said.

“It’s well deserving because without her a lot of things wouldn’t have happened.” The Johnstons, who recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary, have been retired since 2004, but still remain involved in disabled sport and in seeking to improve access for people with disabilities. In addition to the Order of Canada and Hall of Fame, Jerry has received both the Queens’ Golden and Diamond Jubilee medals and many other honours.

have family members still in the Philippines, an archipelago nation of more than 7,000 islands. In Cranbrook and Kimberley, some relief initiatives are getting off the ground. Roxas-Butalid said Bob Cartier of the local A&W is gearing up for a fundraising drive to help local FilipinoCanadians’ relatives and family members still in the Philippines, who’ve been affected by Typhoon Haiyan. Details are still

emerging — watch the Townsman/Bulletin for further details. Roxas-Butalid said local Filipino-Canadians can contact her to also get involved in the initiative. They can call her at 250-581-0126. The most important thing people can do is donate money to help not just the rebuilding effort, but to ensure that people can survive right now, says Graham Mann, East Kootenay Ambassador for ShelterBox.

government has announced that it will match every donation made to Philippine recovery. So if you donate one dollar, the government will donate the same. There are many charitable organizations offering help. The Canadian Red Cross, for example, has begun fundraising, as has UNICEF and many others. Mann says the ShelterBox is exactly what is needed in the Philippines right now. A ShelterBox is a tent with everything ten people need to survive, from water purification equipment to bedding and utensils. One ShelterBox costs $1,200 and Rotary’s ShelterBox team is already on the ground in the Philippines. “We have ShelterBoxes stockpiled around the world, but there are never enough,”

Mann said. “ShelterBox has had a team in the Philippines since midOctober in response to a 7.2 magnitude earthquake that hit Bohol on October 15. They are now assessing the need associated with the typhoon.” Mann says ShelterBoxes stockpiled in Australia are on their way, but more will be needed and the appeal is going out to raise funds. In Kimberley donations can be made at Kootenay Savings Credit Union (cheques should be made payable to Kimberley Rotary Club) or at Grubstake Pizza. Donations can also be made online directly to ShelterBox Canada at www. Donations of $20 or more will receive a tax receipt.

ALR changes concern Macdonald

Documents show government considering changes to ALR in north, Cariboo and Kootenays C AROLYN GR ANT

Columbia River Revelstoke MLA Norm

Macdonald is concerned about possible changes to the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) that the Globe and Mail says were leaked to them last week. Bill Bennett (Kootenay East) and the Minister responsible for the review of core government services, has made no secret of his feelings that the ALR should be reformed, especially in areas such as the Kootenays and the north

where the land is not necessarily that suited for agriculture. The Globe and Mail broke a story last week saying it had obtained documents that said the BC Liberal government was planning to free up ALR land in northern and eastern B.C. for economic development. Bennett told the Vancouver Sun last week that he wants to ensure that marginal agricultural land within the Agricultural Land Reserve

in the Kootenays, Cariboo and the northeast is used for the broader benefit of local economies. “That’s what people in those areas tell us they want,” he said. However, Bennett denied that the ALR would be dismantled. He did refuse to answer any questions on the possibility that the province could be divided into different zones, reported To m Fletcher of Black Press.

However Macdonald has his doubts about any moves the BC Liberals makes around the ALR, especially given that he says no one would have known about it without the Globe obtaining leaked documents. “It’s coming from a cabinet document, so someone in the bureaucracy has leaked it,” Macdonald said. “They leaked it because someone was concerned about the direction the

Kimberley to host skating competition For the Bulletin

The City of Kimberley can expect to see lots of action around Town and at the Kimberley Civic Arena, November 29 to December 1. North Star Skating Club will be hosting the East Kootenay Invitational Skating Competition. This event will host over 150 skaters and families for a weekend of figure skating. On November 29th, a test day will take place. Figure skaters from the East and West Kootenays will travel to Kimberley to be evaluated in freeskate, skills and dance at the Gold and Silver level. Several of our local figure skaters will be testing and include Molly Miller, Emily Newel, Bianca Marina, Zoe Marina, Sydney Wilson, Hannah Doerksen and Brittany Becker. On November 30 and December 1, skaters from throughout BC and Alberta will be attending two days of competitions. Competing from the NSSC will be Hannah Doerksen, Sydney Wilson, Emily Newel, Caitlin Cavalier, Kyla Carlson, Charlize Du Preez, Brittany Becker, Maki Wilkinson, Ella Wilkinson, Jackson Wilkinson and Kana Dolgopol. The NSSC Board of Directors is very proud to be hosting this event, which has not been held here in over 20 years. In recent years the NSSC has seen significant growth and believes it has the resources to promote its Club and Community by hosting a test day and competition. As well our club skaters are very proud to have the opportunity to showcase

ALR was going. “This is not something the BC Liberals have mentioned at all during the election campaign. They have no mandate for this.” Macdonald says that if the document had not been leaked it would have gone straight to cabinet with little to no public consultation. “This begs the question, what is the food strategy going forward? This is a secret process that impacts our food strategy, and the value of the land. Why is all of it behind closed doors?” The ALR was established in 1974 to prevent agricultural land being

lost to real estate and other development. It covers some 4.7 million hectares in B.C. The possible changes would not include lands in the Lower Mainland, Okanagan and Vancouver Island as those areas contain the most fertile agricultural lands. Critics say opening the ALR in the north is primarily to facilitate further oil and gas exploration. Bennett argues that much of the land in the ALR in the north and the Kootenays is marginal at best for agricultural use.

Obituary Wendy Jean Patterson (nee McDougall) October 5, 1955 November 12, 2013 It is with great sadness that Wendy’s family announces her passing at home in Kimberley, BC, with her family at her side. Wendy is survived by Brian (Doug) of Calgary, Bradley of Red Deer, Amanda (Mike) of Kimberley, husband Brent of Kimberley, and a large extended family. Wendy was predeceased by her father, Stewart McDougall, mother and father in-law, Bev and Thelma Patterson, and brother-in-law Craig Patterson. Wendy was born in Brandon, Manitoba where she was the third child of Donna and Stewart McDougall. Wendy grew up on the family farm with her 7 siblings. She attended school in Carroll and Souris, Manitoba. Wendy married Brent on February 22, 1974 and they relocated to Kimberley, BC, where they raised their three children. After receiving her diploma from East Kootenay College, Wendy re-entered the workforce. She enjoyed many years at the local drugstore where she took pride in her work and cherished the relationships she formed with fellow staff and customers. Wendy’s greatest joy was her time spent raising her family. Wendy will be forever remembered for her strength, courage, determination, kindness and laughter. Her sense of humor will be missed by all who knew her. Jodi L’Heureux photos

From Page 1 However, there is an upcoming vacancy in general surgery, and the regional hospital is short one anesthetist, despite a $100,000 incentive. There is one vacancy for a family doctor in Kimberley. In Fernie, there is a shortage of a general surgeon. There are no vacancies in Invermere. Like Cranbrook, Creston is short two family doctors. According to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia, there are four doctors accepting new patients in Kimberley, but only one in Cranbrook. Dr. Yakimov explained the various incentives offered by the B.C. Medical Association and the Ministry of Health, including increased fees, an annual flat lump sum payment, locum support so physicians can take time off, continuing medical education support and relocation expenses. But, Dr. Yakimov said, enticing a doctor to move to a rural community is not usually about money. “Those incentives – they are fun, but that’s not what gets them here. It’s not dollars and that has been very clearly shown,” she said. Physicians, like many other professionals, seek a work-life balance, she went on. “The most important factors for recruiting to

rural (areas) are that there is a job for their spouse, that there are good schools and recreation activities for the kids,” said Dr. Yakimov. Some communities with a physician shortage, such as Nelson, are turning to a walk-in clinic as a solution so that people who are not able to get a family doctor can still receive medical attention without having to go to the hospital. Doctors who work at a walk-in clinic enjoy benefits that regular family physicians do not, Dr. Yakimov said. “The physicians that work there have a very cushy life. They don’t have to be on call, they don’t have to follow their patients into hospital, they don’t have to be available for their patients. They go and they work whatever their hours are for the day, then they go home and that’s the end of their work day.” But walk-in clinics “siphon off easy stuff”, Dr. Yakimov said, leaving time-consuming, less lucrative medical problems for the full service family doctors. “This leads to burnout of the full service family physicians and an inability for them to sustain their income at a level that makes them happy.” In rural communities, family physicians take turns manning the hospital’s emergency department. Physicians

“The physicians that work there (walkin clinic) have a very cushy life. They don’t have to be on call, they don’t have to follow their patients into hospital, they don’t have to be available for their patients. ” Dr. Yakimov at a walk-in clinic are not required to work at the hospital. “These guys come in and they don’t work there, and they sit in the community and they take off the easy stuff and they don’t contribute. That causes a loss of morale amongst the physicians working in the community and a lack of cohesion amongst the medical staff,” said Dr. Yakimov. What’s more, patients who visit a walkin clinic do not receive the same long-term care that they do from a family doctor. “That doctor may never have seen you before, may not know anything about you, doesn’t have that sense about you that your family practitioner has about you, who looks at you and knows you’re not well just by looking at you. You don’t get that in a walk-in clinic,” she said. But John Kettle, chair of the hospital district board, said that’s a non-issue because people who can’t get a family doctor

don’t have that level of care when they have to go to the emergency department instead. “The reality is, when you go to emergency, you don’t see the same doctor either. He doesn’t have your history. And yet when you need a medical, you can’t get one because you don’t have a doctor,” said Kettle. He cautioned Interior Health not to refer to financial pros and cons when talking about health care for people who can’t get a family doctor. “Because to me, what we are supposed to be providing is the best service we can for our patients,” said Kettle. “I can tell you that of the 1,100 or 1,200 people who don’t have doctors, they would go anywhere to get a doctor, whether it’s a walk-in clinic or a doctor who takes patients. To leave those people unattended is just not going to work.” He encouraged elected officials representing every community in the East Kootenay to look into walk-in clinics. “The reality is, we have to look at other options if the doctors that are currently serving us don’t provide the answers to those problems,” said Kettle. “We’re talking about the welfare of people who can’t get a doctor and who need one. So I would urge anyone here who has an opportunity to look at options in your community that you do so expeditiously. These people are not being served, and we are not serving them well if we sit back and watch this happen.”

Decline and fall of the yoga pants

Also, I Bloomberg TV that his company’s im- balked at spending nearly $100 on workout mensely popular yoga pants “just don’t pants. When I have shared my certainty that work” for some women’s bodies. those pants would not look While my immediate good on me with friends, reaction was, well, no kidI’ve often been told that ding, it still bothered me these mythical pants make that Chip was the one to everyone’s bum look amazsay what I had long been Sally ing. thinking. I’m sorry to say it, but Now, I understand MacDonald that is just not possible. No fashion fads. In the ‘90s, I item of clothing will look rocked scrunch socks, tights and an oversized Hypercolor T-shirt good on all body types. There is just too with a scrunchie in my hair and a mood much diversity among womankind for that ring on my finger. In the 2000s, I wore jeans to be realistic. And what a wonderful thing and a Bohemian top with a chunky belt that is. I don’t want to be a Stepford wife. I like loose around my hips, with my hair styled in the “Rachel”. These are all things I would that brides are often heard to complain about how difficult it is to choose a bridesnot do today.

While modern fashwear track pants outside the house, but it ion models and glossy magazines might make us think differently, I don’t believe was okay to wear yoga pants to work. Don’t get me wrong: I took it as a signal every man wants a size four, B-cup, blonde that it was okay to wear black track pants to girlfriend. But it still bothers me that Chip was the the grocery store. Oh, what a glorious day! From the very first time I walked into a one to point out that not all women suit his Lululemon store and saw those bot- megapopular pants.

We only make sizes above an eight for appearances; if you don’t fit into a size eight or smaller, don’t even bother. Earlier in the year, Lululemon had to recall a whole bunch of pants because the fabric was too see-through. Chip’s response then was that women must be wearing them too tight. When you put the two comments together, it sort of seems like our man Chip created these pants without any intention of selling them to curvy women. The fact that curvy women still wanted to buy them seems to have got his nose out of joint. He’d rather we, what, wore a kimono and stayed out of sight? Also, it’s quite frankly a cop-out. If he wants to sell his pants for these high prices, then they better be decent quality. Not seethrough. Not pilling every time two thighs touch. For one reason or another, part of me hopes that this signals the decline of yoga pants as a fashion fad. I preferred my Hypercolor t-shirt.

Local archers take aim against the best in the world TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

A trio of Cranbrook archers recently took on the best international talent available at the World Archery Youth Championships in China in late October. Adam Pitney, Darby Dean and Brittany Johnson all represented Canada in Wuxi, just west of Shanghai, drawing into respectable finishes against some of the top shooters in the world. All three competed both as individuals in their respective categories, and also in mixed team competition. A total of 14 shooters in different age classes from compound to recurve represented Canada at the competition, which were all housed up in a hotel near the track stadium that hosted the event. Pitney was eliminated in the 1/16th round in the junior men compound category, while Dean placed ninth in women’s cadet compound and Johnson placed eighth in junior women’s compound. All three archers had competed in nationals over in Newfoundland in the summer, and aren’t strangers to facing down high-level competition. “I didn’t find it a whole lot different, but you could sort of feel it inside,” said Pitney. “If I hadn’t gone to nationals, it would’ve been way more nerve wracking than it was.” Dean agreed, noting that the encouraging team atmosphere helped. “It was definitely intimidating and stressful, but having that team atmosphere definitely helped a lot, because it kept things a little calmer, knowing that there was a team supporting me,” Dean said. Each shooter went into qualification rounds, which seeded them accordingly against other opponents for elimination rounds. Pitney said he didn’t shoot too well in qualifications, but stepped up his game in the elimination. “I stayed more positive than I would have at any other competitions where bad things happen,”


Adam Pitney, Darby Dean and Brittany Johnson represented Cranbrook and Canada at the World Youth Archery Championship in China in October. said Pitney. He went up against Leonardo Pardini of Italy, beating him by a single point of 139-138 in the 1/24th round. The Canadian shooter then faced Mario Cardoso of Mexico in a battle that was so close, it ended at a tie of 144-144. It went to a one arrow shoot off after that, and Cardoso was able to take the win. “I lost in the one arrow shootoff,” said Pitney, “but I was really happy with my score, because it was the best I’ve ever shot in an elimination round, so I felt really good about myself.” Dean ended up in ninth place in the women’s compound cadet category, making it into the 1/8th round and losing out to the eventual gold-medal winner. Dean rode a bye into the 1/16th

round, facing Ekaterina Makeeva of Russia, winning a close battle at 141-135. After that, Dean was matched up against another Russian in Alexandra Savenkova in the 1/8th round, who took the match at 146-141 and went on to win the gold medal. Despite the loss, Dean said her Russian opponent was very talented shooter. “I’d rather lose against someone who’s going to do super good than someone who’s not going to do that great,” she said. “…I shot not my best. The wind threw me off guard a lot and I felt that—I don’t want to say not trying hard enough—but I felt I shot as good as I could have with the pressure and whatnot.” For Johnson, her results were better than she could’ve hoped for,

finishing in eighth place and—like Dean—lost out to the eventual gold medal winner in the 1/4th round. After qualifications, Johnson earned a bye into the 1/16th round, and faced Yahaira Corona of Mexico, winning by a score of 141-138. She then headed into the 1/8th round to face another Mexican named Stephanie Salinas. Johnson shot a very close match with Salinas, and beat her by a single point at 139-138, which put her into the quarter final against Sara Lopez of Columbia. “I was the only one from Canada that made it past that round,” said Johnson, “and then I found out I had to shoot against the number one ranked in the competition, and everyone knew who the girl was, so it was quite intimidating.” Lopez ended up shooting a 146,

while Johnson ended a dozen points behind at 134. “I kind of let my nerves get to me on that one and I ended up shooting pretty bad for myself,” said Johnson. “She ended up beating me by quite a bit.” Lopez went on to two more matches afterwards, defeating an American and a German to take the gold medal. After the individual competitions, all three also participated in mixed team competitions. While every competitor was trying to do their best, it was still a friendly atmosphere and all three Cranbrook shooters were able to meet fellow archers from around the world. “I guess I could say that I learned that everyone is there competing for the same thing,” said Dean, “and you can tell—it doesn’t seem like we’re competing because everyone is so friendly and we’re talking with each other and we do the pin trading. “We’re all there for the same thing.” By watching other shooters, they were able to pick up on some different techniques as well. “You get to see the stuff that everyone else uses, and how they shoot,” said Pitney. “…For an archer, you can kind of pick out the little things here and there that each archer does. Like some of them will lean back just a little bit, or they’d anchor in a different spot. Just littler things.” Johnson said she did a lot of practicing in twilight and foggy conditions at home to prepare herself for the possibility of shooting in a challenging environment. She has also been working with a local sports psychologist over her last few competitions to help her with the mental side of the sport. “So every time I went to a competition, I’d learn something new about myself that I needed help with,” Johnson said. “Then I’d go to him and he’d give me tools to fix that, so all the tools that I got to practice in the other competitions, I got to bring into this one.”

Kootenay’s special teams on fire as they face Swift Current TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Heading into Swift Current, the Kootenay Ice are facing one of the WHL’s hottest teams on Wednesday night when they clash with the Broncos. Whether on the road or at home, Swift Current is riding an eightgame win streak, which has helped propel them in to second place in the Eastern Conference.

The Broncos have done it with the help of rookie import Finnish defenceman Julius Honka, who has eight goals and 27 points. Also adding some more European flavour to the roster is goaltender Eetu Laurikainen, who has proven to be a tough puzzle to solve. The team also features NHL draft picks in F Coda Gordon (Calgary Flames, 6th round,

2012) F Graham Black (New Jersey, 5th round, 2012) and D Dillon Heatherington (Columbus, 2nd round, 2013). Though the Broncos are hot, there’s an aspect of Kootenay’s game that’s on fire right now, which is their powerplay. Ranked fourth in the WHL, Kootenay drew blood twice against the Chiefs on Saturday, and twice against the Hit-

men on Monday—skating away to wins in both contests. According to Kootenay Ice head coach Ryan McGill, the team hasn’t tweaked their special teams too much, but he noted that players seem to be making smarter decisions with the puck. “Really, it hasn’t changed too much,” said McGill after Monday’s win over the Hit-

men. “I just think that we move the puck around and we’ve been real patient at making the right opportunity on the net. “You can have some powerplays where all you do is blast away and look for rebounds, and tonight, I thought we had real patience with the puck to find the right play.” Jaedon Descheneau is one of the beneficia-

ries of Kootenay’s hot powerplay, scoring 9 of his 16 goals with the man-advantage. Descheneau is the runner up and trailing by one to Mike Aviani, who leads the WHL in powerplay goals. Kootenay generally sends out four forwards and a defenceman on the first-unit powerplay, with Luke Philp on the blue line to launch bombs on goal.

On the other end of the special teams battle, the Ice are in sixth place overall in penalty killing, second behind the Edmonton Oil Kings in the Eastern Conference. On the topic of playing with a man down, Kootenay is also the second-least penalized team in the league—up by only five minutes on the Everett Silvertips, which have avoided the sin bin the most.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You have a lot of oomph as you start your day. How you use it will be your call. Some of you might decide to tell someone off, while others simply will use the energy to become whirlwinds of effectiveness. Tonight: All smiles! TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Know when to pull back and head in a new direction. You could feel off-kilter as you wake up. Ask yourself what you need to change in order to feel better. Communication is your strong suit. Initiate any necessary discussions. Tonight: Use your imagination as you vanish. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Keep reaching out to someone who is very important to your life. You could take this person’s nonresponsiveness personally. The issue is more likely to be one that is unrelated. There might be a lot going on behind the scenes. Tonight: Join a pal for a midweek break. CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Assume your natural role as leader. Communication could have a harsh quality to it. Refuse to take someone’s attitude personally, but you also might want to establish boundaries. Claiming your power could be more important to you in the long run than you realize. Tonight: In the limelight. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Take the high road and you will do just fine. Conflicts could mark the beginning of the day, yet chummy interactions will mark the end of the day. You’ll make the difference because of your attitude, personality and understanding. Trust your instincts. Tonight: Live it up! VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Deal with a problem directly, which might involve dealing with an individual directly. Know the difference between assertiveness and aggressiveness. Veer toward the former. Tonight: Make it a cozy duo, even if it is just you hanging out with your best friend. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Others seem to keep coming


to you with requests. The problem lies in that so many ask so much of you. Before you know it, you could become angry. Say “no” more often. Only you can balance your demands. Tonight: Accept an offer that might have you out on the town. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Pace yourself, and know when enough is enough. Yes, you have a lot of energy, a strong will and much endurance. In a sense, you are unstoppable when you decide to accomplish a goal or do something important for you. You refuse to see obstacles. Tonight: Be lazy. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Your fiery ways push aside any obstacle you might come across. Be diplomatic with a higher-up or parent. In the long run, you will be happier. A partner points to a new path where creativity and happiness seem to merge. Tonight: Let go and enjoy the moment. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You could decide to maintain a low profile as you sense an issue coming in from out of left

field. You don’t always have to handle every problem. Focus on an issue involving home and/or real estate. Opportunities come through a partner. Tonight: Happy to be home. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) A partner might be difficult at best. Back off, and duck out of the way of this person’s fireworks. Answer calls and get into some errands and/or other responsibilities. Knowing when to back off is an invaluable skill. Tonight: Have a chat over munchies. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You might feel the need to indulge a loved one who lets you know that he or she is not up to snuff. That effort will ease this person’s mood, but do not break your budget. You are resourceful; consider different ideas that keep your costs on an even keel. Tonight: Make nice.

ANNIE’S MAILBOX by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I have been married for more than 20 years and have never been sexually attracted to my husband. He is a good provider, but there is no passion, no excitement, nothing. I have tried everything I can think of to make sex better, but he acts as if it’s part of my wifely duties, which makes me sick. I don’t want to break up our home, but I’m in love with a passionate man who just rocks my world. He kisses me, and I forget my name. Our affair has lasted four years. Why can’t I keep them both? -- Torn in Tulsa Dear Torn: It seems you’ve been doing exactly that for four years, but obviously, it’s not enough. Please stop living a dual life and figure out what you want. If there are young children, you owe it to them to work on your marriage. Get into joint counseling so your husband can work on his Neanderthal attitude toward women and so you can see whether passion can be ignited. If you believe sex is the most important aspect of a marriage, divorce your husband so you can be with Rocks Your World. But having it both ways isn’t working, and you’ll feel better when you deal with this more honestly. Dear Annie: I was sexually abused by an uncle when I was 12. I am now 35 and expect to see him at an upcoming family reunion. After all these years, I finally wrote him a letter. He will never read it. When he dies, I want to place it in his casket. I hope you will let me share my thoughts: Dear Uncle: I have a few things that I’ve waited a long time to tell you. Now that you are dead, I am finally happy. I am happy you are burning in hell. God has given me justice. While others are mourning your death, I am celebrating. I will never forgive you for what you did. You stole my childhood from the moment you laid hands on me when I was a 12-year-old child. Your own niece. When I was a child, I used to think you were a great uncle. I trusted you, respected you, looked up to you, loved you the way a niece should. And when you betrayed me, I was shattered, and I never looked at you the same way. I have waited a long time for your death so that I could go to your funeral and watch you being lowered into your grave. You are a total disgrace. You are nothing to me. God never should have created you. You had no purpose in life other than to hurt children. You are pathetic. Now that you are dead, I can finally be at peace knowing that you will never again hurt a child. -- Still Suffering Dear Still: Thank you for composing a letter that obviously came from a very wounded place. Please don’t wait until your uncle is dead to warn your other relatives and report him to the authorities. Your courage to speak up could protect other children who come into contact with this predator. And for you and anyone else who has suffered through abuse, please contact RAINN ( at 1-800-656-HOPE for support, encouragement and help. Dear Annie: You printed a letter from “Humiliated Wife,” who said her husband seems to be overly interested in a classmate from his 50th high school reunion. You said her husband is in his “late 70s.” Your math is seriously off. My 50th high school reunion is this year, and I’m 67. There’s no way he would be older unless he was held back a few years. -- I Can Add Dear Add: You are right that we could use a remedial math class. But the advice stands. If the man suddenly ogles every woman and can’t keep his hands off the waitresses, he needs to see his doctor.

Top Ten Reasons to Advertise in a Newspaper Your market changes constantly. Advertising is tremendously helpful in directing customers to the product and services they need, and helps put you ahead of your competition.

2. Your Competition Isn’t Quitting. You’ve got to advertise to get your share of business or lose it to the stores that do. If you cut back on your advertising, you may forfeit new prospective customers to your competition.

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

4. Continuous Advertising Strengthens Your Image.



Want to reach new customers? We read the newspaper every day, Monday to Friday.

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

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

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

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

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

9. Advertise to Keep a Healthy Positive Image.


In a troubled economy, rumors and bad news travel fast. Advertising corrects gossip, shoots down false reports and projects positively.


10. Advertise to Maintain Employee Morale.

Is there someone new on the horizon? Dear Wendy: I was wondering if you could tell me if I will meet anyone new this year or in the new year? I started a new job and I seem to like it a lot. I was also wondering if I would be going back to school again to attain my Masters in Education? I have a good life but I seem to be lacking a good partner to share it with. Do your guides see if I will be getting married and having children anytime soon? Feeling Lonely Dear Feeling Lonely: I asked my guides if you would get married and have children in this lifetime. The answer was a definite yes. We feel you will be going back to school and attaining your Masters in Education in 2017.

I asked my guides if you will meet a man for a permanent, long term, loving relationship. The answer is yes, in the latter part of 2014, more towards the winter. However, if you wish you may email us and we will do a “spec” on him for you to make certain this is the man we are “picking up” on. Wendy Hi Wendy: I was wondering if you could tell me if my son will graduate this year? Do you see him going to live with his father this year? Do you think he will ever stop being verbally abusive to his sister and me? I don’t know what to do with him anymore; he seems to be getting worse. Do your guides have any words of advice for me about what I

should do about him? Do you see him taking or being on drugs? Desperate Mother Dear Desperate Mother: Well, my love, you certainly have your work cut out for you with this child. We did a “spec” on him and this is what we have discovered: I asked my guides if he was taking drugs and the answer is a most definite yes. He is also consuming alcohol but the drugs seem to be what he is mostly taking. We do not see him graduating in 2014. We do not see his father wanting to take him to live with him on a permanent basis. We feel that your ex-husband was a verbal abuser as well. We do not feel he

ed front and take some affirmative action with his behaviour and his drug and alcohol problems. You need to let go of the petty difficulties that you and your husband have for each other and totally concentrate on ask your son’s wendy welfare. This Wendy means he Evano has a tendency to lie to you and his dad and he has a tendency to manipulate both of you. His line of defence is to divide and conquer, so to speak, when he wants something from either of you. This means if he doesn’t get money or whatever from you when he wants it, he just phones up Daddy and gives him a story and then Daddy usually ends up by giving him what he wants. The sad thing is he knows Daddy does this

just to shut him up so he will go away and leave him alone. You as well give in to him on occasion because you just don’t know what to do with him and his verbally abusive mouth. He bullies you to the point of submission to what he wants. This needs to stop on both your parts and start acting like adults and start setting boundaries with yourselves and him. This means a proper curfew, get him into some sport, take him to the doctor for an examination, and get him into some program that you and your husband need to participate in with him. He has been let go far too long to run his own life. It’s not going to be easy but it certainly is worth a try, my guide is saying. In conclusion, I feel raising children is one of the hardest jobs. You never know how they

would become physically abusive with you or his sister. However, it is imperative that he gets help for his drug and alcohol problems. If he does not want to do this then you are going to have to make some decisions and design a plan of what to do about his behaviour. I think it’s imperative that you phone his father and both of you sit down and talk to your son and tell him what you have discovered about his problems. If he denies taking drugs or alcohol then tell him you want a doctor’s report to verify what he is saying is true. The reason why you need to do this is because you have let him get away with too many of his lies. It’s time that you and your husband stand together in a unit-

are going to turn out or what they are going to be or do. Personally, if they can act in society with some modicum of respectability and earn a comfortable living for themselves and cope with their emotional issues without getting involved with the law and not be a burden to society, then you have done a good job as a parent. However, there are no guarantees how they are going to treat you as a parent. That comes from their own soul and has nothing to do with how you reared them. So take a deep breath, Mom, get a plan, phone your ex and tell him you want to put your differences aside with him and that you need help to try to get this child you both had the help he needs. You may just be surprised at your ex–husband’s attitude if you decide to do this. This is not about you and him, this is about your son. Wendy

Thief hits Calgary eateries C ANADIAN PRESS

CALGARY — Three high-end Calgary restaurants have been hit by a dine-and-dash artist who racks up a big tab and then escapes before paying the bill. Last week, Muse in Kensington was the target of the high-living thief, who ordered expensive cocktails, a $70 bottle of wine, an appetizer and an entree. He left his wallet on the table and said he was going to the washroom, then slipped out the door. When staff examined the wallet they found bits of magazine clippings inside and that’s when they knew they’d been had. A security camera captured the man’s image and the story and photo went viral on Twitter with the hashtag “musecrimefighters’’ over the weekend. Two other restaurants, Teatro and Blink, believe the same man pulled a similar dine and dash scam on them.
