Council talks streets, parks A R N E PE TRYSHEN Townsman Staff

With recent letters from the public stating a lack of appetite for higher taxes, Mayor Wayne Stetski tried to clear up some of the misconceptions about the 2nd Street South and Moir gravel pit proposals at Monday’s council meeting. “Whether it be 2nd Street South or other parts of the road program, we have $3 mil-

lion in our annual budget to do roads in Cranbrook,” Stetski said. There is an opportunity to apply for a federal grant that could provide funding on a 70 to 30 per cent sharing basis. That would mean for the $3 million the city has budgeted for the roads, an additional $7 million could come from the federal government.

Ray Martyniuk passes away in Panama TONY DRANSFELD

One of Cranbrook’s most illustrious, yet most unsung, hockey players has passed away. Ray Martyniuk played for the Cranbrook Royals of the WIHL, and had the distinction of being the fifth player chosen in the first round of the NHL draft of 1970. Martyniuk passed away in Panama, where he had moved following his retirement. A goaltender for the Flin Flon Bombers, Martyniuk was chosen in the first round by the CanRay Martyniuk with the adiens in 1970.

Local searchers help look for missing man in Australia

Canadian Prabhdeep Srawn disappeared in May while hiking near Australia’s highest peak; local Search and Rescue volunteers are on their way down under to help in the search SALLY MACDONALD Townsman Staff

Four East Kootenay volunteers are bound for Australia to take part in the search for a Canadian man missing in Australia’s high country since May. Originally from Hamilton, Ontario, Prabhdeep Srawn was attending university in

Australia. In May, he travelled to the Snowy Mountains region to hike the country’s highest peak, Mount Kosciuzsko, at 2,228 metres in elevation. However, soon after Srawn set out, a snowstorm hit the region, dumping up to 30 centimetres of snow, and the

25-year-old military reservist has not been seen since. A large air and land search for Srawn was called off in June when winter set into the alpine region. Srawn’s family quickly launched a private search using Australian experts, hikers and helicopters, joined by off-duty members of

Former Cranbrook minister dies in Maryland church fire Fire allegedly started when food bank client set himself on fire and entered the church food bank Barry Coulter

A former priest at Christ Church Anglican in Cranbrook has died in a church fire in Maryland, which started, apparently, when a person on fire entered the building. David Dingwall was serving as Rector at Saint-Paul’s-By-the-Sea Episcopal Church, in Ocean City, Maryland. Dingwall was priest at the Anglican Church in Cranbrook for several years, before moving to the U.S. in 2003 with his wife and three sons. He had been at Saint Paul’s since 2005. The fire began about 9:25 a.m. Tuesday, “when a person on fire entered the Shepherd’s Crook ministry offices,” the Episcopal Diocese of Easton said on its website. Ocean City spokeswoman Jessica Waters told the Baltimore Sun that one man was found dead in the building when first responders arrived, while two other people, including Dingwall, were critically injured. The diocese website reported that though Dingwall’s condiEpiscopal Diocese of Easton Rev. David Dingwall was Pastor at Christ tion stabilized at a local hospital in the Church Anglican in Cranbrook for several afternoon, Dingwall succumbed to his injuries Tuesday evening. years until 2003.

USA Today reported that witnesses say a man set himself on fire then entered the church’s basement home to a food pantry and soup kitchen. “The fire started in the basement of the church offices in what’s called the Shepherd’s Crook food bank, where you can imagine they’ve been distributing a lot of food for the (American) Thanksgiving holiday,” said Rev. Canon Heather Cook, the diocesan official. “It’s a wooden church and it sounds like it caught fire very quickly.” Christ Church Anglican in Cranbrook gave a statement after hearing the news. “We were shocked to hear of Rev. David Dingwall’s death and saddened by the news. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and to the parish he was serving in Ocean City.” Dingwall grew up in western Canada, studied for the ministry in Saskatchewan and served three parishes in B.C., including Cranbrook, before moving to the United States. A prayer service and time of remembrance for David Dingwall will be held at Christ Church Anglican in Cranbrook on Wednesday, December 4 at 7 p.m.”

Man sentenced over King Street shooting S a l ly M ac D o n a l d Townsman Staff

A man has been sentenced to four years in jail for firing a rifle into a Cranbrook apartment building earlier this year. Victor Russell Gravelle pleaded guilty in Cranbrook provincial court on Wednesday, Nov. 27 to unlawfully discharging a firearm. The charge stems from a Feb. 24 incident, the Crown explained, when Gravelle fired a Winchester .270 rifle into a third floor apartment on King Street, Cranbrook. Gravelle was a resident of the apartment block when, at 2:38 a.m., he took the rifle from his apartment, went down to the parking lot, and fired from his truck into the thirdfloor residence of his neighbour. The bullet went through the window and lodged in the wall. His neighbour was sitting on the couch by the window at the time but was not hit by the bullet. Gravelle told police that he assumed his neighbour was home but could not see him by the window. He also told police that he just wanted to scare his neighbour,

who owed him $500. Police reported that Gravelle appeared intoxicated at the time. Gravelle has been in custody since the offence. He was granted bail in April but was unable to meet release conditions. The charge of unlawfully discharging a firearm comes with a mandatory minimum four year sentence. Judge Ron Webb gave Gravelle that sentence, minus the time he has already served, which brings it down to three years and 89 days jail. The judge also imposed a 10-year weapons prohibition on Gravelle and a no-contact order with the former neighbour and the neighbour’s girlfriend. “This was a poor decision largely fuelled by alcohol and at the end of the day no one was hurt,” Judge Webb said in his decision. “I am bound by the criminal code which provides a minimum sentence. In my view the mandatory minimum sentence misses the fact that there are other factors that should be taken into consideration. It does result in an injustice being imposed.”

Local searchers off on Australian mission Continued from page 1 As well, Srawn’s family is paying out of pocket to send 15 B.C. search and rescue experts to launch a separate, twoweek search. Four of those experts hail from the East Kootenay. From Kimberley Search and Rescue, Scott MacLeod and Seb Martinez have volunteered to take part. They will be joined by Tom Hopkins from Fernie Search and Rescue, and Charmaine Lingard from Sparwood Search and Rescue. The team will be led by Vancouver-based Martin Colwell of SAR Technology. “(Colwell) is a search manager and also a computer genius and he has a lot of statistical computerized aids in search management,” said MacLeod, one of the Kimberley volunteers. In teams of three, they will scour a large area searching for Srawn, hoping to complete 60 missions in the two-week expedition. The young man’s rental car was found near the trail head for Koscuizsko, but a week passed before he was reported missing and he had not left plans for his hike. “I think the family is very realistic about what they are expecting. They have spoken of it as a recovery mission and of

MacLeod will travel to Australia this weekend to help in a search for missing man Prabhdeep Srawn. us finding his remains,” said MacLeod. The family is paying for the B.C. team’s travel and expenses, but each person is donating their time. MacLeod said the Srawn family approached B.C. Search and Rescue Association about the mission because of a deep respect for the volunteer-run organization’s Canadian efforts. “B.C. Search and Rescue has the biggest pool of well-trained searchers in Canada,” said MacLeod. “Because of our experience in heavily forested, mountainous terrain, they

went to the B.C. organization.” MacLeod, who leaves for Australia from Vancouver on Saturday, said he volunteered partly because of the challenge of the new terrain, but mostly because he wants to help the family. “The family is very concerned to the point that they are spending a very large amount of their own money to send us. I thought I could make a contribution and help the family out as well,” he said. “I hate this term, but they need closure. They need to know that the best effort they could have has been put out to try to

find him.” A former police officer, MacLeod now works in Victim Services in Cranbrook. He added that the B.C. crew does not diminish the search efforts conducted by Australian personnel. “The local authorities and Australian search teams have done what I understand is a really good job. We will just be going out a little further afield and double checking some areas that they think should be checked better,” said MacLeod. “This isn’t us second guessing them in any way, shape or form.”

Ray Martyniuk one of Cranbrook’s greats Continued from page 1 However, “Marty” lost the goalie job to a guy named Ken Dryden and was assigned to the American Hockey League by Canadiens G.M. Sammy Pollock. Thus began a long career in hockey’s minor leagues — Seattle, Kansas City, the Baltimore Clippers, the Oklahoma City Blazers, Columbus, Springfield, Salt Lake City, Tucson, and finally, Grand Rapids, Michigan. Ray then “retired” from the   Montreal organization so he could get his amateur card with Cranbrook, after playing with Ron “Spike” Huston in Salt Lake City (Ron was a terrific player for Cranbrook in the 1960s, and still lives here). Marty was a fiery competitor on the ice, and once scrapped

with his Royal defenseman Bobby Craig after a “puck miscommunication.” Martyniuk had a long career with Coca Cola as a technician in Cranbrook, servicing the dining establishments, where everyone was happy to see him come in with his tool bag. Ray and Judy Martyniuk started the Lefty Righty Tournament at the Cranbrook Golf Club in 1987 with 50 entrants, and it soon blossomed to be a big success. The tournament ultimately raised more than $600,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society and other charities during the 25 years the event was held. Kenny Holland, current General Manager of the Detroit Red

Wings, was a close friend of Ray’s (and a fellow goalie) and  played in the Lefty Righty frequently. Holland has always donated signed Detroit Red Wings jerseys and NHL memorabilia for the silent auction. Ray and his late wife Judy were world travellers, and Panama was their favourite spot. As Rick “Rocky” Allen, General Manager of the Kimberley Dynamiters, said this week: “Ray Martyniuk is a guy that the hockey community is certainly going to miss. I know that I will.”


Prabhdeep Srawn, 25, went missing in May while hiking in Australia’s rugged Kosciuzsko National Park.


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.

Council debates 2nd Street, Moir gravel pit Continued from page 1 “That would give us $10 million to do roads in this next year,” Stetski said, noting it would not affect a change in taxes. The city feels the 2nd Street project is a good candidate for that federal funding. “Engineering staff have also said that the improvements that are part of that, including the sidewalks, storm drain improvements, vegetation etcetera, in their mind helps improve our case for the $7 million,” he said. Stetski said the federal grants are based on improvements in the community and would not likely be granted for a direct replacement. Apart from being one of the main entrances to the city, Stetski said the sewer and water mains under the street are aging and will need replacement soon. According to the city’s engineers, the average street in Cranbrook costs $650,000 to replace, while the new models for 2nd Street would bring that cost to $830,000 and $860,000 between the two proposals. “It’s important that people recognize that

2nd Street South is in dire straits,” Coun. Sharon Cross commented. She said that given the 50- or 60-year life span of this type of infrastructure, this is a rare opportunity to create an attractive route through 2nd into downtown. On the other side of the tracks is Moir Gravel Pit, formerly Moir Park. The city has received correspondence on this subject as well stating that the funds to rehabilitate the gravel pit into a city park over the next decade could better be used somewhere else. However the money that will redevelop the park comes directly out of funds raised from the sale of gravel through the pit. The land was originally donated to the city by the Moir family. The plan calls for a $10 or $11 million park to be built in phases as the gravel is depleted in specific areas. “Moir Park will be developed without any additional costs to taxpayers in Cranbrook,” Stetski said. Stetski said every $200,000 in taxes the city takes in represents a one per cent property

tax change. “This is a $20 million potential expenditure with no increase,” he said of the two projects. Coun. Angus Davis talked a bit about the history of George T. Moir, a prominent resident of Cranbrook. Moir worked for CP Rail and was known as a trustworthy person. The owner of the property at the time put the land into Moir’s name because of that trustworthiness. “He was going to pass on and he wanted to put it into someone’s hands that he knew it would be taken care of by the municipality someday,” Davis said, “that the land would be put away for recreation.” That’s where the city’s recreation area used to be. “It’s a trust that the city has been given and I think it’s good what we’re seeing in these plans for it,” he said. “It says a lot about Mr. Moir to have that legacy placed in his hands and he could place it on the city. Hopefully we can do it all the honour that it deserves.” The current Moir Park was bestowed with the Moir name when

the city ran into financial trouble and were in danger of having to cut back the construction. The council at the time approached the family which allowed for money to come out of the trust to complete the project. Mayor Stetski also commented on a letter from a resident regarding the 2nd Street project and promises made by a former council to have 27A Avenue S. and 29th Avenue S. refinished. Stetski spoke to former Mayor Scott Manjak and councillors to see if promises had been made at the time, all of who said no. Coun. Denise Pallesen also talked about the resident’s letter. “She was concerned that we might be putting ‘nice to haves’ instead of ‘must haves,’” Pallesen said. The resident said the add-ons should be put in front of residents to decide whether the street improvements, other than infrastructure upgrades, are necessary. She also questions whether Cranbrook is in a financial position to pursue the Moir gravel pit reconditioning. She wondered whether the money could instead be used for Idlewild Park repairs. “Because the city is needing so many other projects to be completed, I’m not sure we need to be doing as much,” Pallesen said. CAO Wayne Staudt said the funding would depend on how long gravel is coming out of Moir gravel pit. “The money is earmarked for the reclamation and building of a park and that’s all,” Staudt said. He noted

that the council of the day made a commitment when it took on the trust fund to build a park once the gravel was extracted. Coun. Bob Whetham noted the resident’s concerns about Idlewild dam. “One of the things I hope we can do is to see whether the funds and proceeds from the sale of gravel from the Moir gravel pit might also be used for Idlewild,” he said. “We have an engineering issue we can’t avoid.” Coun. Gerry Warner said that having paved streets is a basic service and the people of 27A and 29th Avenues have suffered long enough. Warner hoped that after 2nd Street was finished 27A and 29th Avenues would be next on the list. Coun. Sharon Cross noted the resident’s concerns with roundabouts and cited a recent presentation from ICBC. The roundabouts slow traffic without stopping it and make pedestrian crossings safer. ICBC will help pay for roundabout construction. Cross also noted that the bioswale areas in the proposals for 2nd Street are important as it will take pressure off the storm drainage system. Coun. Diana J. Scott noted that the resident’s concerns were about costs, so she said that finding out what each item costs was important for council to do. “If the extras are because of grants, then that needs to be explained,” she said. “If the extras are not because of grants, then we have to say, ‘Do we really need them?’”

Tickets up, crime down in Cranbrook Arne Petryshen Townsman Staff

Staff Sgt. Lorne Craig and Cpl. Pat Prefontaine presented third quarter results for policing in Cranbrook to city council at the Monday meeting. Prefontaine said in terms of school zone enforcement in the one month of school in session during the term, there were four speed checks. He said the officers found there was a high compliance rate in school zones, with only two tickets issued. This year there have been about 22 road checks and 22 tickets issued. “I think our motorists are kind of holding the line on going through school zones,” he said. “We’re expecting with the next quarter we should have our numbers up.” He said there hasn’t been much change in pedestrian jay-walking. He said enforcement is likely not the answer, so RCMP are looking at public education with council’s help. Prefontaine said the city division incorporated East Kootenay Traffic Services data as well in terms of distracted driving numbers, as they work in the city as well. Together the two divisions have issued 95 distracted driving tickets in the city this quarter. He said that’s 63 per cent higher than expected. “It’s not slowing them down, but I think like anything else the continued pressure is going to help,” he said. Cranbrook RCMP have dialled back com-


munity patrols as the rural budget has taken a hit. So far there have been 24 for the year.

“It’s good to see the continued effort on drug traffickers and the number of drug traffickers that are being charged. As everyone knows, drug crime leads to many other types of crime generally as well.” Wayne Stetski There have been five boat patrols. “As with the school zones, we found a very high compliance with small vessel regulations,” Prefontaine said. “That was really nice to see as well. We also worked hand in hand with the Conservation Officer Service.” Prefontaine said they are on track with the Healthier Aboriginal Communities Program. They planned for six presentations this year and are already at six. In terms of reducing organized crime, Prefontaine noted 16 drug traffickers have been charged so far this year. In one case, Cranbrook police worked in conjunction with Crowsnest Pass RCMP to help on the case.

Mayor Wayne Stetski said it’s good to see that virtually all types of crime were down in the third quarter, with the number of tickets issued being the only thing that was up. “It’s good to see the continued effort on drug traffickers and the number of drug traffickers that are being charged,” he said. “As everyone knows, drug crime leads to many other types of crime generally as well.” Coun. Sharon Cross said she was happy with the way police handled the Nomad Motel incident. “More often than not, reports of police intervention and sensitive issues surrounding people with mental issues or medical distresses often end badly for the victim, but RCMP were able to, most recently, deal very professionally and very compassionately with the situation and I commend you for the way you handled the situation at the Nomad,” Cross said. In the end no charges were laid. Councillors also noted Prefontaine’s hair was dyed blond. He explained that it was part of a pledge to raise money for a Cranbrook constable who was diagnosed with leukaemia two years ago. He is now in chemo and so the detachment is doing pledges to present to Ferrier and family as early as this week at a public ceremony.

Playing Chicken in the East China Sea


ince Saturday, when China declared an “Air Defence Identification Zone” (ADIZ) that covers the disputed islands called Senkaku in Japanese and Diaoyu in Chinese, the media have been full of predictions of confrontation and crisis. On that same day Japan scrambled two F-15 fighters to intercept two Chinese aircraft that approached the islands. “This announcement by the People’s Republic of China will not in any way change how the United States conducts military operations in the region,” said US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel, and on Tuesday the US Air Force flew two B-52 bombers from Guam into the ADIZ. A Pentagon spokesman said Washington “continued to follow our normal procedures, which include not filing flight plans, not radioing ahead and not registering our frequencies.” But forcing incoming aircraft to do just that is the whole point of creating an ADIZ. Aircraft entering the zone must provide a flight plan, maintain two-way radio communications and clearly identify their nationality, said the Chinese Defence Ministry, and aircraft that ignore the rules would be subject to “defensive emergency measures.” Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told Japan’s parliament on Monday that the zone “can invite an unexpected occurrence and it is a very dangerous thing as well” – but on Tuesday Tokyo instructed Japan Airlines and All Nippon Airlines (ANA) to simply ignore the zone when

flying through it. It is turning into a game of chicken, and the East China Sea is just about the worst place in the world for that kind of foolishness. China and Japan have been pursuing an increasingly angry dispute over the ownership of the Senkaku/Diaoyu Islands, which are under Japanese administration. They also have a long history of conflict (in which China was generally the victim), and they both have strongly nationalist leaders. Beijing is looking for a diploGwynne matic victory here, not a war, but it is taking a very Dyer big gamble. Just how does China intend to enforce its new ADIZ? By shooting down a Japan Airlines 787 and a US Air Force B-52? If not that, then how? National pride and the personal reputation of new President Xi Jinping are both seriously committed to this game now, and if the foreigners ignore the zone China cannot just shrug its shoulders and forget about it. Which brings us to the key question: did Beijing really game out this move before it decided to set the zone up? Did it set up teams to play the Japanese and the Americans realistically, look at what they might do to challenge the zone, and consider its own counter-moves? That’s what most great powers would do before launching a challenge like this, and maybe China did that too. But maybe it didn’t. When you put yourself in the shoes of a Chinese navy or air force commander

trying to enforce the new ADIZ, you can’t help feeling sorry for him. He can shoot something down, of course, but even his own government would quail at the possible consequences of that. Quite apart from the grave danger of escalation into a full-scale military confrontation with Japan and the United States, the economic damage to China would be huge. On the other hand, if he doesn’t compel aircraft transiting the zone to accept China’s new rules, both he and his political superiors will be open to the charge of failing to defend national sovereignty. This is a lose/lose situation, and I suspect that the Chinese government and military really didn’t game it through before they proclaimed the ADIZ. The Senkaku/Diaoyu Islands are not worth a war, or even a single ship or aircraft. They are uninhabited, and their alleged connection with the seabed rights to a natural gas field around 300 km. (200 miles away) is extremely tenuous. This move is a deliberate escalation of an existing dispute, made with the intention of forcing the other side to back down and lose face. It’s quite common in games of chicken to block off your own escape routes from the confrontation, in order to show that you are not bluffing. And in almost all games of chicken, each side underestimates the other’s will to risk disaster rather than accept humiliation. This could end quite badly.

Child Care Plan

In response to the letter from Neil Matheson regarding Council’s support for the $10/day Child Care Plan for B.C.: Cranbrook’s City Council is appropriately responding to the growing child care dilemma facing families with young children in the community. Fees are too high for many working families, quality licensed spaces are too few, and early childhood educators usually don’t earn a living wage. Child care is not an issue of the political right or left — it is an issue about children’s healthy development, their families and the social and economic health of the community. In School District 5 there are 24 per cent of five-year-olds who arrive for kindergarten already vulnerable on one or more of the early developmental indicators as measured by their kindergarten teacher and tabulated by researchers at UBC. We can do better for our youngest citizens because vulnerable children come from families at every socio-economic level. It’s important to support families to make the choices that are right for them. Some families will choose to have a parent stay out of the workforce, others will not or cannot. And in fact the majority of mothers with young children are in the workforce. The $10/day Child Care Plan when implemented will move children out of unregu-

Foot-dragging on polygamy

Saturday is the second anniversary of then-B.C. Chief Justice Robert Bauman’s landmark decision upholding Canada’s anti-polygamy law. Yet no charges have been laid against the Mormon polygamists of Bountiful, B.C., or against the imam in Ontario who performs second and third marriages for Muslim men there.

For months, B.C. special prosecutor Peter J. Wilson has had RCMP evidence recommending what charges should be laid. The Federal Tax Court found polygamist leader Winston Blackmore guilty of under-reporting his income faster than any action that has yet to be taken regarding the human rights of the women and children, young men and boys of Bountiful. Evidence from Texas trials that put 12 Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints men in prison apparently sits gathering dust on the special prosecutor’s desk. This evidence shows 53 underage girls were trafficked across international borders for forced marriage to older men. In Canada, human rights issues and ratified conventions protecting women and children appear to be just pretty words on paper.

Pen mightier than PC

I take my fountain pen in hand to thank Mike Selby (Booknotes, Nov. 22) for his piece “Pen is mightier than PC.” He wrote: “It may seem odd to discover that … pens and pencils are favoured over computers and tablets.” That being observed, it is alarming to hear reports that more and more educators are backing away from teaching the children how to write. One can only hope that school boards will rethink such short-sighted intentions. Jack Lindquist Cranbrook

Ecosystem restoration volunteers honoured Courtesy Susan Bond

Two long-time members of the East Kootenay Wildlife Association (EKWA) were honoured recently for their contribution to ecosystem restoration. Glynn Killins of Kimberley and Andy Pezderic of Golden represented the wildlife association on the Rocky Mountain Trench Ecosystem Restoration Program (ER Program) and Rocky Mountain Trench Natural Resources Society (Trench Society) from 1996 to 2013. Both men retired this year from their volunteer positions after representing EKWA on the ER Program steering committee and Trench Society board of directors for a combined total of 26 years. Current EKWA rep on the two organizations is Mark Hall of Jaffray. “Glynn and Andy did an outstanding job of speaking up for ecosystem restoration and its benefits, particularly for wildlife habitat,” Trench Society coordinator Dan Murphy told an EKWA meeting in Cranbrook November 16.

Glynn Killins, left, and Andy Pezderic at a Trench Society meeting in 2004. “Their dedication and commitment over so many years is an example to all of us who value the natural environment. It is an honour to recognize them today.” On behalf of ER Program partners and Trench Society member organizations, Mur-

phy presented Killins and Pezderic with gifts in appreciation of their work. Killins was the first chair of the Trench Society, which was formed in 1996 by a coalition of hunting, ranching, wildlife and environmental organizations to support restoration of grass-

What’s Up?

Letters to the Editor lated, potentially unsafe care and into quality, licensed care where educators are well trained and compensated — the same standards we have for older children when they start school. Families would have good choices that don’t exist now. Yes, indeed raising children is the most important responsibility. As we all say, children are our greatest resource, so families should be supported in that child-rearing role at the same time as we ensure Cranbrook residents can participate in the local economy and that businesses thrive. The economic evidence is that access to quality child care is good for the economy and public investment into child care pays for itself. Collectively we invest in public education, health care, libraries and community centres to give everyone equal access. Child care needs to be one of those services that is quality, affordable and accessible.  Often City Council is closer than senior levels of government to the daily experience of residents in the community and as such Councillors have a responsibility to speak up on issues that impact the community – child care is one of those issues right across the province.

land and open forest ecosystems in the East Kootenay and Upper Columbia Valley. Pezderic, a former EKWA president, was a strong advocate for ecosystem restoration at the provincial level during his many years as chair of the BC Wildlife Federation’s Forestry and Land Use committees. The Trench Society was one of the founding members of the Trench ER Program when it was established by the BC Government in 1998. The program has since grown into a partnership of 30 agencies restoring grasslands and open forests on Crown land, provincial and national parks, private conservation properties and First Nations reserves. Restoration enhances winter range for elk, mule deer, white-tailed deer and bighorn sheep, and improves habitat for many of the region’s endangered wildlife species, among other benefits.

Ice vs RCMP: Go blonde or go bald



Sports News? Call Trevor 250-426-5201, ext. 212


On November 29, the Cranbrook/Kimberley RCMP will play the Kootenay Ice in ball hockey, and then either go bald or blonde. Local officers have challenged the Ice to a friendly ball hockey game. The game, which will take place in the Western Financial Place parking lot, will start at 4 p.m. Come cheer on the officers and players. Hot dogs and coffee will be available by donation. Funds raised from the game will go to the Ice charity Believe in the Gold. Right after the game (approx 5:15 p.m.) officers and support staff will either shave their heads or go blonde. A fellow Cranbrook RCMP officer is currently undergoing chemo treatment for cancer. Participating members and staff have been collecting pledges for the past month. Funds raised by the shave off will go to assist the family financially to ease the burden of the increased costs for treatment and travel. The Kootenay Ice Charity, Believe in the Gold, supports families affected by childhood cancer, increases awareness of childhood cancers and raises funds for research into the disease that affects one in every 400 kids. Both the RCMP and Kootenay Ice recognize that cancer affects everyone – the young and old, the rich and poor, men, women and children – and represents a tremendous burden on patients and their families. We are asking for your support at 4 p.m. on Nov. 29 at Western Financial Place in Cranbrook.

Skaters and executive members of the NSFC meet with some of the sponsors for the competition, Bev Middlebrook (Fall fair), Jill Bellm (Trickle Creek Lodge) and Eric Forbes (Kimberley City Bakery)

Kimberley set for Invitational CHRIS NEWEL

From Friday, Nov. 29 through Sunday, Dec. 1, the North Star Skating Club will be holding a Regional High Test Day and the East Kootenay Invitational Competition. In an effort to make these events a success the club canvassed the business community for support through sponsorship. Many businesses and local organizations have stepped up to sponsor the competition through gold, silver and bronze sponsorship. Gold sponsors include Trickle Creek

Lodge Resort, Mountain Spirit Resort, North Star Village Resort, Tourism Kimberley, The Connecting Link, Kienna Coffee Roasters, Jodi L’Heureux Photography, Kimberley City Bakery, Rocky Mountain Distributed Learning School, Kimberley Vision Care and Moody Bee. Silver sponsors are Creekside Physiotherapy, Grubstake Pizza, Community Fall Fair and Wolfpack Signs and Printing. Bronze sponsorship was provided by Anywear Garment. Togs and Toys, Kimberley Electric, the City

of Kimberley, Kimberley Aquatic Centre, Affordable Floors, Overwaitea, the Green Door Catering, Wolfy’s Hair Salon, the Kimberley Daily Bulletin, Snowdrift Cafe and Dancy Pants also showed their support of the competition by providing generous raffle prizes and items for the athlete welcome bags. The North Star Skating Club is proud to be hosting these figure skating events at the Kimberley Civic Arena. 130 skaters and their families as well as eight judges and officials from throughout B.C. and Alberta will visit

our community as a result of the club hosting this event. Because Kimberley has not held a figure skating event such as this for many years it will certainly bring new visitors to our city. The support provided will certainly provide a foundation for our local skating club to host future events. NSSC’s figure skaters are busy working with Coach Tamara Bannatyne at this time to be ready for their test day and competitive events. It has been an exciting fall for the club and the skaters. Local events such as

these are great opportunities to promote our business community and the City of Kimberley. Please join NSSC in welcoming the athletes, judges and officials to Kimberley for a full weekend of figure skating. Admission to all events on Friday, Saturday and Sunday are free to the public. The test day will start on Friday morning at 8 a.m. and run until 6:30 p.m. Competitive events will start Saturday and run from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Sports More than 200 players join NHL concussion lawsuit

C a n a d ia n Press

The original concussion lawsuit against the NHL included 10 former players, and that number has already grown. More than 200 players have joined, according to lawyers Steve Silverman and Mel Owens, who are at the forefront

of the suit. Owens, an NFL linebacker-turned-disability lawyer said in a phone interview Wednesday that “hundreds’’ of exNHL players are going to become part of the suit, which was filed in U.S. federal court in Washington on Monday.

available when requested. was the first to report that more than 200 players joined the effort, which began with 10 players: Gary Leeman, Bradley Aitken, Darren Banks, Curt Bennett, Richard Dunn, Warren Holmes, Robert Manno, Blair James

“These are 10 players, but there’s hundreds of guys that, they’re in the lawsuit,’’ said Owens, who works for NBO Law in Beverly Hills, Calif. “They just haven’t been named yet. They’re going to be there.’’ A list of the 200-plus players was not made

Stewart, Morris Titanic and Rick Vaive. Former New York Islanders centre Bob Bourne announced he joined the suit shortly after it was filed. Leeman and Vaive in recent days have politely declined comment about their involvement, deferring to Sil-

verman and Owens, who said he did not know how many players would wind up being a part of it. “I don’t know how many living alumni there are in the NHL that have these significant problems,’’ Owens said. “I don’t know that. But like in the NFL, it just matured over time. Once the players find out that, ‘Oh, there may be hope for me. I might be able to get some help and some treatment to address my quality of life issues,’ I’m sure they’ll be in contact.’’ More than 4,500 former NFL players sued that league in a case that Owens said has “parallels’’ to this one. That settlement was

worth US$765 million. Owens said there wasn’t any recruiting being done to get more players to join the cause. He sent tweets to several former players informing them of the case beginning Monday. “All of our business that we’ve ever done has all been by word of mouth. The players are the ones that talk amongst themselves,’’ he said. “Once I have knowledge as a player, like you have knowledge and like everybody else has knowledge, the word spreads. Back in the ‘60s and the ‘70s and the ‘80s the person with all the knowledge and the power were the owners. They controlled the message.’’

Correct your tax affairs through the Voluntary Disclosures Program The Voluntary Disclosures Program allows taxpayers to come forward and correct inaccurate or incomplete information or to disclose information they have not reported during previous dealings with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). Taxpayers may avoid being penalized or prosecuted if they make a valid disclosure. A disclosure may be made for income tax and goods and services tax/harmonized sales tax (GST/HST) purposes. This program may be for you if you have any unreported income from business, employment, pension, or interest; unreported capital gains; misappropriated funds; or unreported GST; or if you

have over-claimed input tax credits and expenses or if you have not filed information returns.

How to make a disclosure Making a disclosure is as simple as filling out a form and sending it, along with all of your disclosure information, to your tax centre for processing. 1. Fill out Form RC199, Taxpayer Agreement – Voluntary Disclosures Program. 2. Attach to the form your disclosure submission and any supporting documents. Make sure you include all the information related to your disclosure with the initial submission to avoid processing delays or the file being refused because of insufficient information.

prosecutions and penalties no longer apply. 2. Be complete. 3. Involve the application or potential application of a penalty.

Include all your information—it’s a must! It is important to include all the information so that your disclosure will be processed quickly. If you do not provide enough information, processing can be delayed or the disclosure might be refused.

4. Your submission must be in writing. Mail or fax it to your local tax centre.

Where should a budding Snowbird go?


Carla Nelson at Maritime Travel goes through a variety of destinations for the young-at-heart traveller

re you a Snowbird? It must be great, and I can hardly wait until my turn is here. A few weeks ago, I gave a presentation about Snowbird destinations, some tips and things you should know, to some snowbird and snowbird wannabes. In case you missed it, here’s a brief summary. If you are over 55, live in a northern climate like Canada, are retired, have some disposable income, are reasonably healthy and active, and feel the need to escape winter for 30 to 180 days each year, then you are a potential Snowbird! So, where should you go? Popular destinations like Arizona, California and Florida are available, but don’t discount places like Portugal, Spain, France and Croatia, that are affordable in the off season.

Also consider places where the seasons are reversed, like Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and the Cook Islands. Other choices could include Hawaii, a world cruise, or even Osoyoos, if you have trouble getting outof-country medical insurance. One month in a fully contained apartment on the Sunshine Coast in Australia, with balcony, laundry, heated swimming pool, hot tub, barbecue, with restaurant and coffee shop on site, including airport transfers and a welcome grocery pack would cost approximately $3,600. Airfare is additional. It’s beach weather in Australia in January! Or consider a more affordable option and head to the Algarve in Portugal. It’s off season and not beach weather. But with a consistent temperature of 15 de-

grees Celsius, it’s great for golfing, hiking, sightseeing and strolling

Trail’s backyard chicken plan fails to fly Sheri Regnier Trail Daily Times

After gathering input from 148 residents on the City of Trail website and hardcopies at select locations, city council grounded a request to allow the keep of backyard chickens. Overall survey results show the split was almost 50/50, 49 per cent in favour of changing the bylaw to allow the keep of hens, and 51 per cent opposed. An interesting twist to the whole proposition is that of 72 respondents saying “yes” the bylaw should be changed, only 34 of those said they would keep chickens on their property. “There would appear to be limited interest amongst Trail residents to have backyard chickens,” said Michelle McIsaac, the city’s corporate administrator, at Monday’s council meeting. “Considering there are approximately 3,000

households in Trail, it equates to approximately 1 per cent of Trail’s households.” Of the 169 total responses returned, 148 appeared to have been submitted by Trail residents, and most of the concerns were related to the potential for noise, odour, and the attraction of wildlife and vermin. Another key question outlined the need for restrictions if people started keeping chickens on their residential property, to which 96 per cent agreed there must be regulations in place. Those included a limit on the number of chickens, consideration to property size and location of pens, and no roosters allowed. Council pursued the issue in response to a letter written to the city in August, when a West Trail resident asked how a permit to keep chickens could be obtained.

Creston council wants poll on daylight time Brian L awrence Creston Valley Advance

Nelson Star File Photo

A recent report released by Interior Health found that Kootenay Lake hospital has a significant infrastructure deficit.

Report on hospital repair costs called staggering Greg Nesteroff Nelson Star

Nelson’s mayor isn’t surprised that an Interior Health study  finds Kootenay Lake hospital in Nelson has a significant infrastructure deficit. But John Dooley, who is also the city’s representative on the West Kootenay Boundary regional hospital district, says learning the actual

cost involved — $30 million to make the building good as new — was “a wake-up call” that felt “like a sledgehammer.” The study, made public last week, said Kootenay Lake hospital, built in 1957, is worth $63.3 million, meaning it would cost about half as much to renovate as to replace — not including any expansion of footprint or equipment.

Creston town council would like to see an opinion poll regarding daylight time added to ballots in the 2014 municipal election, it was decided at last night’s regular meeting. The motion passed with three of the four councillors present (Tanya Wall and Wesly Graham were absent) voting to have Mayor Ron Toyota request that the Creston Valley services committee make the recommendation to the Regional District of Central Kootenay board. “I think it’s really important because it’s a democratic issue that was never really solved in 1952,” said  Coun. Judy Gadicke, who supported the recommendation with Couns. Scott

Veitch and Jerry Schmalz. Based on Gadicke’s research, Creston didn’t participate when municipalities were asked about adopting mountain daylight time yearround, and wants that to finally happen. “Once we have a yes or no vote, we can move on,” she said. “We need the democratic process to move forward,” said Veitch. Coun. Joanna Wilson voted against recommending the opinion poll, with responses she’d received on Facebook indicating that Creston Valley residents don’t want to switch to daylight time. “I think there are far more things we could be doing,” she said. “It’s taking away from other discussions we could have at election time.”

TRAFFIC SAFETY IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF ALL: CRANBROOK RCMP Roadways are a very dynamic environment with situations and circumstances that can change quickly. There is great potential for injury and property damage if drivers are not obeying the rules of the road. Signs and signals such as school zones, stop, yield signs and traffic lights are only a few tool used to assist drivers in keeping safe while they navigate City streets. In order for these signs and signals to work, they first need to be seen then obeyed. Please be aware of and respect all traffic signage and signals when driving all year. Make sure our streets are safe for everyone! A Message from the Cranbrook RCMP and the City of Cranbrook.

FALSE ALARM BYLAW Established in 2008, this bylaw states that when police attend at a business premises to provide service in response to a false alarm of a security alarm system, the owner of the property on which the premises are located shall pay to the City of Cranbrook: $100 for the first offence; $150 for the second; $200 for each offence thereafter.

FALL DEER MATING SEASON APPROACHING; RESIDENTS URGED TO BE AWARE Residents and visitors are advised to continue to exercise both caution and common sense this fall, as the late autumn deer mating (rutting) period begins. That is the message from the City of Cranbrook. In the weeks leading up to the rut (into November and December) bucks increase their displays of dominance and indirect threats. A dominant buck typically circles a rival with deliberate steps; back arched, head low and tail flicking. Bucks can also display dominance by violently thrashing the bushes with their antlers. “We are into a transition period, where some does with fawns remain wary and potentially aggressive toward humans with dogs,” says Mayor Wayne Stetski. “Now we will likely also see an increase of particularly aggressive acts from the local urban buck population. Residents are reminded to please give deer plenty of space to move or leave the area. Do not walk closer to the deer; find another route.”

DO YOU HAVE SEWER BACK UP INSURANCE? Please check your Homeowner’s Insurance Policy. If you do not have sewer backup insurance you should contact your broker and arrange to have it included in your policy. The City of Cranbrook does its best to maintain the sewer systems, but has little control over what foreign objects may be deposited in them causing blockage.  The City will not accept any claim for back up of sewers.  Claims of an accidental or unforeseen nature should be processed through your Homeowner’s insurance.

Mealworm stuffing and cricket-topped pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving menu at bug museum ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW ORLEANS — A unique — or rather “eww-nique’’ — Thanksgiving feast is being served up in the Audubon Insectarium’s “Bug Appetit’’ kitchen in New Orleans. On the menu: turkey with cornbread and mealworm stuffing, wax worm cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie with a crispy cricket topping. The Thanksgiving holiday fare is being served through Wednesday at the 23,000-squarefoot bug museum, the largest free-standing museum in the United States dedicated to insects. Exhibits there house

thousands of live bugs, and insect-infused cuisine can be sampled any time of year in the museum’s Tiny Termite Cafe. Specialties include chocolate “chirp’’ cookies, six-legged salsa made with tomatoes and chunks of crickets, sugared wax worms and spicy Cajun crickets. Traditional fare, sans the worms and sixlegged critters, is also available for less-adventurous eaters. On Monday, wideeyed patrons looked on as the museum’s “bug chefs’’ worked at a counter and stove preparing the Thanksgiving eats. “I tried everything,’’

said Amelia Babin, 61, of Duplessis, La., adding that the cranberry sauce with wax worms was her favourite dish. “I don’t know that I’ll ever fix it myself, but it was interesting.’’ Babin’s daughter-inlaw, Amanda Babin, 32, of Gonzales, La., had family members shoot video as she took her first bite of bug: the sixlegged salsa on a chip, which was one of the “appetizers’’ set out among the Thanksgiving fare. “I surprised myself,’’ she said. “I watch Fear Factor and Survivor, and I’m the one sitting on the couch gagging. But I had to do it to say I did it.’’


Elkford Parents Against MindUP I’m wondering when it happened that schools went from learning how to read and write; add, subtract and multiply; learn about Canada and other Countries; do science experiments…….to learning how to meditate and clear your mind? Have your heard of Pavlov’s Dog? Known as “classical conditioning” or “Pavlovian conditioning” or “respondent conditioning”? “Pavlov presented dogs with a ringing bell followed by food. The food elicited salivation (an unconditioned response), and after repeated bell-food pairings the bell also caused the dogs to salivate. In the experiment, the unconditioned stimulus is the dog food as it produces an unconditioned response, saliva. The conditioned stimulus is the ringing bell and it produces a conditioned response of the dogs producing saliva.” MindUP uses the same conditioning responses, only using a Zenergy Chime. “The teacher strikes a Zenergy chime, which encourages children to generally sit cross legged, palms up and eyes closed. They are then to direct their attention to the sound of the chime and focus intently on their breathing. The chime will gradually evoke a conditioned response in the children, as similar tools do in Buddhist monks. “


Last week, the Core Review Committee announced that the Provincial Capital Commission and Pacific Carbon Trust will be folded up, with a savings to tax payers of $6.6 million. There are 90 crown agencies in government, as well as the ministries.


The main goal of government’s Core Review is to ensure the best possible use of government resources and respect for the interests of taxpayers. The Core Review process will continue to review agencies, ministries and programs until the end of 2014.

When did it become OK to evoke a conditioned response in our children? We do not wish our children to become “hypnotized” by the ringing of a chime – to condition them to mindlessly fall into meditation. We wish to teach our children our way of meditation at home. The way we choose to meditate should be taught by us, the parents; not to be enforced upon by teachers or principals of our school system. Also, It says in The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Schools Act Section 76 (1) & (2): “All schools and Provincial schools must be conducted on strictly secular and non-sectarian principles” and “The highest morality must be inculcated, but no religious dogma or creed is to be taught in a school or Provincial school.” When did it become OK to teach our children that it is acceptable to break the law? MindUP is a new program being implemented into Rocky Mountain Elementary School in Elkford, BC. Their core practice is akin to certain forms of Buddhist-style mindfulness meditation. “Buddhism is a religion indigenous to the Indian subcontinent that encompasses a variety of traditions, beliefs and practices largely based on teaching attributed to Siddhartha Gautama, who is commonly known as the Buddha, meaning “the awakened one”.” Buddhism is a religion. Christianity is a religion. Islam is a religion. Hinduism is a religion. Agnostic is a religion. Only to name a few. We are not necessarily for or against any of these – neither are we discrediting any. We are saying “…no religious dogma or creed is to be taught in a school or Provincial school.” Religion, meditation, prayer, religious rituals….those should be taught in an individual’s home….not in a school. Those are choices we make as parents – not teachers – what “religion” to bring our children up with. Just as it is our choice whether our children take a sex education class in school – or teach them from home. Whether our children will go on a field trip, join school sports, any type of extracurricular activities – those are our choices as parents. This program is an extracurricular program. One not mandated by our Government. One, which goes against the laws that our Government has put in place. Before you make a rash judgment call on this program – before you jump to a quick conclusion whether you are for or against this program – be encouraged to do research.

We leave with you one final thought….10-15 years from now when our children are “functioning” adults in society...these adults do not have a basic knowledge for the English language, these adults do not know basic addition and subtraction, these adults do not know how to vote or why they are even voting….but, boy oh boy, when they hear a chime; they can sure stop everything and practice their meditation… Carl & Jennifer Norgate - Kevin & Lorrie-Anne MacLeod -


Chef Jayme Necaise and sous chef Mack Cuenca, front, pose with a pumpkin pie made with crickets at the Audubon Insectarium. Some of the children visiting wouldn’t partake in the bug dishes, but others went back for second and third helpings. The chocolate “chirp’’ cookies appeared to be a crowd favourite. “They’re good,’’ said 5-year-old Francie Kreutzjans, of Fort Mitchell, Ky., who ate several of the cookies flavoured with crickets, which the museum’s executive “bug’’ chef, Jayme Necaise, said were a good alternative to nuts for those who suffer allergies. He also notes they’re a good source of protein.

Her mom, Dinkey Kreutzjans, grimaced through laughs as her family ate the cookies and crispy Cajun crickets. “I can’t do it,’’ she said, laughing. “But it was fun, and they’re going to go home and say they ate bugs in New Orleans for Thanksgiving.’’ The Insectarium will be closed Thanksgiving day, but reopens Friday. The museum includes thousands of live insects, including beetles, cockroaches, ants and termites. It also has a butterfly exhibit created to resemble a Japanese garden.

Montreal flash of light probably a fireball C ANADIAN PRESS

MONTREAL — A Canadian expert says a bright flash of light accompanied by sounds of a booming explosion in parts of Eastern Canada were probably a good-sized fireball. Numerous people posted Twitter messages reporting a blue flash and a thundering boom in the Montreal and Ottawa areas at about 8 p.m. eastern Tuesday. Peter Brown, a physics professor at Western University in London, Ont., said the fact there was sound usually indicates something penetrated deeper into the atmosphere.

“It’s certainly consistent with the effect we would expect for a relatively good-sized fireball that might produce meteorites.’’ Brown said he would not be surprised if meteorites landed somewhere on the ground. Brown, who researches meteors and comets, said it was cloudy and overcast Tuesday night and that no meteor was spotted in data that was collected. But Brown suggested that the fireball may have been far enough away in the sky that none of his cameras were able to record the event.

HOROSCOPES by Jacqueline Bigar

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Sociability surrounds you this Thanksgiving. Many people will tend to emote, yet they still will be enjoyable company. You might discover that you have very little to complain about. It is your job to enjoy yourself. Tonight: Let it all hang out. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Your expectations for Thanksgiving are grounded in your past. You’ll enjoy making the social rounds, so to speak, in that you like visiting with everyone and catching up on news. A loved one will be instrumental to the success of this Thanksgiving. Tonight: Help clean up. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Others always dominate on Thanksgiving. Let the stress of the day fall to the wayside. A loved one will demand your time. Though you might grumble about possibly missing a game on TV, you’ll give this person your attention. Tonight: Put on your dancing shoes.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) You’ll see life from a renewed, upbeat perspective. You won’t mind doing all the holiday prep work, because family is what is important. For many of you, Thanksgiving is one of your favorite holidays. Tonight: Once you are done, kick back and enjoy your company. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You seem to have a naughty perspective on almost everything that happens right now. Your light playfulness will be contagious, but others seem to take it to extremes. A loved one might surprise you with his or her actions. Give this person the space to grow. Tonight: Swap jokes. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You will have a tendency to go to extremes right now. You might indulge in way too much turkey or some other slightly addictive behavior. If you saw this type of behavior from others, you would be very critical. Be less judgmental in the future. Tonight: Rein yourself in. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)


Some Thanksgivings are better than others. You have tremendous potential this year. Enjoying a loved one happens naturally. You could be jolted by some element of this Thanksgiving’s celebration. Relax. You don’t need to make a correction. Tonight: All smiles. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You’ll need to break free at some point during the day. That is not to say that you won’t have a good time; you just need to indulge in a nap or take some “you” time. News about the possibility of a trip and/or visit will make you happy. Tonight: Mum’s the word. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You might want to spend some extra time with a friend, but because of the nature of the holiday, it could be difficult to do. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. A relationship could heat up, and you finally will see a desire become a reality. Tonight: Zero in on what you want. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Take the lead and carve the turkey, especially if others have

trepidations. It seems that whatever you do, loved ones find your actions nearly perfect. Enjoy this short period in which it seems as if you can do no wrong. Tonight: Everyone turns to you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Reach out to someone at a distance whom you care a lot about. This person might be a longtime friend. Open up to new possibilities, and stop working within a rigid framework. Knock down a restriction or two. Live it up! Tonight: Use your imagination. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You could be taken aback by what you hear and from whom you hear it. If something feels off to you, it probably is. Don’t lose your focus on the holiday and a special loved one, no matter what is going on in the background. Tonight: Plan on some special time with a special person.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

ANNIE’S MAILBOX by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I have been with the same woman for six years. Now she has asked me to marry her. We get along terrifically, but when it comes to bedtime, there is no closeness. She says she can’t cuddle with me because she’s been hurt so many times in the past. We sleep with her three big dogs in between us. This doesn’t seem fair to me. If you’re in love, isn’t it only natural to want to hold and cuddle the one you marry? I’m terrified of making the wrong choice. Please help. -- No Cuddles in California Dear California: Not everyone likes to cuddle, but someone who puts three dogs between you in bed isn’t even trying. More importantly, you need to be compatible on this issue. If your girlfriend has been so hurt in the past that she cannot show affection, suggest that she get counseling. Otherwise, we don’t recommend you spend the rest of your life wishing things were different with your partner. And should you decide she’s not the one, please have the decency to tell her so you both can move on. Dear Annie: I would like to offer a possible solution to “No Hallmark,” whose sister makes cards that are a work of art and need to be displayed. Now she’s inundated with lovely cards and doesn’t know what to do with them. I have a dear friend who has been making such cards for more than 20 years. I consider them an extension of her personality and spirit. For a long time, I saved the cards in a box. Recently, I took them out, selected a few of my favorites and had them cropped, matted and framed in a collage that I hung in my home office. Whenever I see it, I smile and remember happy times in our friendship. My friend sends me new cards every year. I display them temporarily and then put them into the box. Sometime in the future, I will once again go through the process of having my favorites framed and hung in a space that needs brightening somewhere in my home. When my friend found out what I had done, it sent her over the moon with happiness -- the same way her thoughtfulness in creating and sending the cards makes me feel. -- Lucky Recipient Dear Lucky: We received several suggestions from readers who came up with ways to preserve these artistic cards without feeling overwhelmed. Read on: From New York: I am a card maker. I hope the people to whom I send my works of art feel the love and good wishes glued and stamped on that card stock. Here is another option for what to do with the cards after the recipient has finished enjoying them: Offer to give them back to the sender. I keep a scrapbook of my art and often look back at previous work to get ideas for new cards. I certainly would take my cards back. Perhaps No Hallmark’s sister will, too. I bet she would be touched by the fact that the cards are still around after all these years. Sierra Vista, Ariz: “No Hallmark” could donate those cards to a charity, such as St. Jude’s Children’s Ranch (100 St. Jude’s Blvd., Boulder City, NV 89005). The Ranch cares for children from abusive homes, and the kids earn money by recycling used cards into new ones and selling them. California: “No Hallmark” could scan those beautiful cards and save them digitally. That way, she keeps the artwork and sentiments, but doesn’t have to store the physical paper. And she also could easily share them with others. She could even make a virtual album. Louisville: My mother takes cards that she really likes and glues the front to a plain gift bag so the card continues “giving its gift.” I liked the idea enough to start doing it myself.

Shaun was born January 11, 1984 and grew up here in Cranbrook, BC. His parents raised him as a bush baby, so his love for the outdoors became his roots. He was always exceptional in school and rarely came home with less than an A.

HARASIUK, Shaun Tyler January 11, 1984 November 16, 2013

Shaun always lived his life to the fullest. Everything he did, he did to the extreme, whether it was hunting, fishing, riding his motor bike or mud bogging. He loved riding with his buddies and said he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold a candle to a few of them. His brother Kelly said this about Shaun, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shaun was an awesome man! Misunderstood by most because he would red line every emotion available, such as loving, sadness, fighting, laughter and anger.â&#x20AC;?
