A young Cranbrook man will spend two years in a federal prison after pleading guilty to 17 charges resulting from a four-month crime spree in Kimberley, Cranbrook, Creston and Crawford Bay. Curtis Paleologopoulos, 22, was in custody in Cranbrook Provincial Court on Wednesday, Nov. 28 facing charges including four charges of theft of a motor vehicle, three charges of theft, three charges of

break and enter, four charges of breach of probation, one charge of possession of stolen property, one charge of assault and one charge of possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose. The offenses began in July when someone broke into a home in Kimberley and stole gold jewellery. In September, Paleologopoulos went to a pawn store in Cranbrook in an attempt to sell 12 items of gold jewellery, four of which were identified as being items stolen

from the Kimberley home. Also in July, Paleologopoulos stole a bottle of gin from a Cranbrook liquor store. In September, a motor vehicle was stolen from the driveway of a home in Kimberley. Paleologopoulos’ fingerprints were found inside and outside the vehicle. Many of the charges stemmed from a crime spree on October 18. Paleologopoulos stole a vehicle in Kimberley and drove it to Creston. See CRIME, page 3

Yearly turkey drive aims to help local families A r n e P e t rys h e n Townsman Staff

The Christmas season is a time for celebration, but as with many places, some families in the Cranbrook area are in tough situations over the holidays. For the fourth year in a row the Cranbrook and District Chamber of Commerce will be putting on the one day turkey drive for the Salvation Army and the Cranbrook Food Bank. The goal of the drive is to provide festive holiday dinners to 750 families in need in the community. The Chamber will be taking donations and organizers are hoping to collect at least $20,000 in pledges. The turkey drive is Wednesday, Dec. 5, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The drive started a number of years ago. “There was a call out from the Salvation Army that they didn’t have enough donations to do hampers and turkeys for people in need,” said Jason Wheeldon, one of the event organizers. So a few of the Chamber di-

rectors and staff got together and started calling up the business community and Wheeldon said the donations were filled within a few hours. And because the need was there, they decided to make it a yearly thing for the Chamber to do, and broaden the reach to the general public. Some community “celebrity pledge raisers” will be helping out and Wheeldon himself will be dressing up as a six-foot tall turkey as a remind for people to make a call or visit the Chamber to make a pledge. Wheeldon said his quirky sense of humour lead him to find the turkey outfit. “We were at a store and I seen the chicken outfit,” he said. “I thought, let’s have some fun with it. So we tried to do it really humorously. We set a contest last year that any group, organization or business that’s going to come in with a larger donation for the Turkey Drive, we will come up dressed as a turkey and pick it up.” Wheeldon said the outfit brings a lot of laughter, usu-

ally at whoever is wearing the outfit’s expense. As to who has to wear the outfit, Wheeldon said whoever is on his “hit list.” Last year the Turkey drive raised something like $28,000 Wheeldon said, and they hope to do the same or better this year. The idea is people pledge a turkey and that pledge amounts to about a $20 donation. “We try to make it as easy as possible to the donors, so they phone their donation in to the Chamber of Commerce or they can drop their donation off,” he said. “Just for convenience needs we can invoice them through the Chamber or bill them.” Wheeldon said the drive takes pressure off the food bank and Salvation Army so that some of the organizations capital that would be used up at Christmas time for those in need can be used for other times of the year. For instance in January and February, the charitable organizations still see a high demand for services, but fewer donations, so those funds can help to tie them

over. “All the funds that they receive through the program go into their Christmas Hamper programs,” he said. There are 750 hampers that need to be prepared this year between the two organizations and the cost of those hampers ranges from $85$100, which means the program can cost as much as $75,000. “So if we can help by bringing them $25,000 into it, then it keeps their resources for when it’s needed,” he said. On Wednesday, Dec. 5, call the Cranbrook and District Chamber of Commerce office at 250-4265914 to make a pledge.

man to be sent to a federal institution, where he hopes to take advantage of drug and alcohol treatment programs and training. Judge Webb agreed to a two-year global sentence for Paleologopoulos, combined for all 17 charges. “You’re only 22 but it seems every time you show up out of jail you do something stupid,” Judge Webb told Paleologopoulos. “Essentially, a) you probably need to leave town and b) you need to grow up.” The young man agreed, saying that he plans to move to Toronto after he is released from jail, and that many people in Cranbrook would be happy to see him go. “You’ve got a terrible record and a reputation in the community that’s bad if not worse. You’ve got to decide if you want to get a fresh start,” said Judge Webb.

in and cooked food. They returned to the first home and stole a vehicle. That vehicle was found in Kimberley two days later. On Oct. 28, Paleologopoulos was seen rifling through a vehicle by its owner, who confronted him. Paleologopoulos sprayed him with bear spray, saying the man was “bigger and scarier” than he is and didn’t keep his distance. The next day, Paleologopoulos was found with bear spray when he was arrested by RCMP. The breach of probation charges stemmed from times in May and June when Paleologopoulos broke a court-ordered curfew, and his failure to pay a court-ordered fine in August. Defense counsel Rick Strahl asked Judge Ron Webb to impose a two-year sentence for Paleologopoulos because that is the minimum required for the

It was found abandoned at Creston Valley Hospital. He then stole another vehicle from a home in Creston, as well as a women’s purse and a backpack containing knives from the owner’s second vehicle. With another person who has not been identified, Paleologopoulos drove the stolen vehicle to Crawford Bay where they unintentionally crashed after falling asleep at the wheel. They walked to a nearby residence, broke in and stole several items, including jewellery, a case of valuable historic money, and bear spray. They also used the hot tub at that home, but did not take a safe because Paleologopoulos said it would be disrespectful to the owners.

Hopley deemed long-term offender From Page 1 Instead, Justice Holmes gave Hopley the label of long-term offender. That means that once he has served his prison sentence, Hopley will be in the community but under the supervision of the federal parole board, with conditions set by the parole board. If he breaks those conditions, he can be returned to prison for up to another 10 years. Hopley pleaded guilty to the Sept. 2011 abduction of three-year-old Kienan Hebert from his home in Sparwood in the middle of the night. He then took Kienan to an abandoned cabin in Crowsnest Lake, Alberta, where the little boy was kept for four days. Then Hopley returned Kienan to his home and left the child curled up on the sofa. Justice Holmes gave Hopley a sentence of seven years and two months for the offences, but Hopley was given credit off his sentence at day-for-day for the 26 months he has already served in custody awaiting Friday’s hearing. In her decision, Justice Holmes said Hopley could not be given dan-

gerous offender status because he has not displayed a pattern of repetitive behaviour in his criminal record. Hopley had a string of convictions in the 1980s, before he turned 20, of sexual assaults against young children. But he has not been convicted of a sexual offence since 1985. In 2007, he attempted but ultimately failed to take a 10-year-old boy from his foster mother in Sparwood, claiming he was acting on behalf of the boy’s biological mother. Justice Holmes said that act was not similar enough to the 2011 abduction of Kienan to make the two offences a pattern, and the gap between the 1985 sexual assault and the 2007 offence is too long to be considered part of a pattern. “The Crown submits that the pattern of using children for his own purposes began when Mr. Hopley as a teenager used children for sexual purposes. I cannot agree because those sexual offences are too far removed in time from the abduction related offences, and they share only the slightest of features,” she said.

Instead, the judge ruled that Hopley is a long-term offender, pointing largely to the facts that he carefully planned his abduction of Kienan, he does not feel empathy for any of his victims, and he remains convinced that he was justified in taking the boy from his home. “He acted without any real concern about the enormity of the harm he was likely to cause,” said Justice Holmes. She referred to Hopley’s claim that he took Kienan because he felt he’d been treated unfairly in his 2007 conviction. “The logic by which Mr. Hopley justifies his offences is in my view likely sincere. However it is that very method of thinking which in my view places Mr. Hopley at substantial risk of reoffending.” With the long-term offender status comes a supervision order of up to 10 years. Justice Holmes chose to give Hopley the maximum time for that order. She referred to the evidence of forensic psychiatrist Dr. Emlene Murphy, who said that homosexual pedophiles become less likely to reoffend with age, with the

risk of reoffending dropping off greatly after age 70. “Mr. Hopley is now 48. After he has served the appropriate period of imprisonment for these offences, long term supervision for the maximum period available will take him close to the age where his risk of reoffending will be minimal,” said Justice Holmes. The prosecution had been seeking a sentence of 8 to 10 years, while defense counsel was seeking a sentence of 4 to 6 years. Hopley may appeal, defense lawyer says The Hebert family will now be able to put this traumatic event behind them, Crown prosecutor Lynal Doerksen said after the sentence was handed down. “I know the Heberts will be happy this is over and the attention they have been given will go away now. I’m sure they are going to be happy with that,” he said. Justice Holmes in her decision said the Heberts have shown “exceptional fortitude” in dealing with Kienan’s abduction, adding that Kienan’s mother has written to Hopley in prison encouraging him to seek support. “This is a very unique family and they have been very forgiving,” said Doerksen. “They have been dealing with this in their own way and have done a remarkable job with that. It certainly is very unique; I haven’t seen a family like this

very often.” The Crown knew that achieving dangerous offender status for Hopley would not be easy, he went on, “because Mr. Hopley did not commit any physical harm or a sexual assault against Kienan Hebert. It’s a problem I’m glad we had. I’m glad Kienan was returned to his family whole and that we did not have an easier case. “The Crown is pleased with the results. This means Mr. Hopley will be in custody or under strict supervision until he is about 63. The Crown is very happy he has got the sentence he deserved, and the long term offender designation means the public will be protected for a very long time.” But defense counsel William Thorne said that, while Hopley was not surprised by the long term offender designation or the seven-year sentence, he is considering an appeal of the 10year supervision order and the one-for-one credit for time served. Thorne had been seeking credit at 1.5 times the days served waiting sentencing. “He and I are going to have further discussions and he may consider some points of the judgement he may wish to appeal,” said Thorne. Hopley does plan to take advantage of treatment options while he’s in prison, Thorne went on. “Mr. Hopley within the past couple of years has come around to thinking that some treatment for his problems might be helpful, not so much just to reduce his sentence, but hopefully, when he does get out into society again, to help him not reoffend so he doesn’t end up back in jail.” It’s important that the message gets out, Thorne went on, that Hopley’s sentence was reduced because he brought Kienan back without harming him. “That was a very, very significant mitigating factor that rightly should lessen his sentence,” said Thorne. “Hopefully anyone that’s contemplating a similar type of action in the future will recognize that leaving the child unharmed is in everybody’s best interest, including the offender.”

Ecosystem restoration volunteers honoured SUSAN BOND For the Bulletin

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. “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, Murphy 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 grassland 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. For more information, visit www.trencher.com.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

But in Toronto Center they had high hopes. Toronto Center had been held by Bob Rae, a figure who looms large in Ontario politics. With his retirement, and an unknown running for the Liberals, the seat, in an area that has produced for the NDP, was up for grabs. But the NDP didn’t grab it. Does the blame lie with Mulcair? He is in some ways reminiscent of the beleaguered Michael Ignatieff — a brilliant mind, coupled with a less than inspiring public persona. Mulcair has been magnificent in Question Period —  on focus and unrelenting in his efforts to have Mr. Harper provide answers to the Senate scandal. But somehow that isn’t translating to the hustings. In fact, Justin Trudeau even adopted the late Jack Layton’s quote on love and hope, causing the exact opposite emotions in NDP members. Interestingly enough, both Trudeau and Harper could claim that they delivered, holding the two ridings each. Yet public perception seems to be that because the Liberals took the Conservatives right down to the wire in a safe Manitoba riding, it’s advantage Liberals. We will see. Oh, and also last week, a Russian torch-bearer carrying the Olympic flame set his jacket on fire. I’m sure Putin’s looking into it. Because it was flaming. See you next week.

What’s Up?

KIMBERLEY AND CRANBROOK COMMUNITY CALENDAR

The annual Affordable Art Show is on display at the Key City Theatre gallery until Dec. 20

Affordable Art at Key City Theatre The Key City Theatre is hosting its annual affordable art show from November 25 to December 20 in the Key Gallery. This event provides local artists with the opportunity to showcase in our gallery 3 pieces of art that are priced under $300.00 each. 26 artists from across the East Kootenays have submitted more than 70 pieces in a wide variety of styles. Many popular artists have contributed their works for the Affordable Art show at Key City Theatre. Cranbrook photographer Brandon Peters has two canvas prints of his stunning photos of Mt. Rundle and Kootenay

National Park. Marilyn Oliver’s use of heat and wax in her two pieces of encaustic art are unique and vibrant. We have a wide variety of acrylic works from local artists including Jim Robertson, Wolfgang Kunze, Paula Cravens, Elizabeth Stuart and Val MacPhee. Steen Jorgensen acrylic painting “Three Pig’s” has a similar feel to C. M. Coolidge’s “Dogs Playing Poker” paintings and shouldn’t be missed. Dave Weir, a local wood carver, has a piece that is hauntingly similar to “Treebeard” of the Ents from J.R.R Tolkien’s classic series Lord of the Rings. Additional works from Darlene Purnell (fibre), Sharon Routley (oil and can-

vas), Dorial Davis (mixed media), Yoki (oil pastels) and many more can be viewed hanging on the Key Gallery wall until December 20. The Key City Theatre will also be holding an Affordable Art Reception and Christmas Craft Fair on December 14th from 11a.m to 4 p.m. The reception will include a meet and greet with local artists, live music, 20 local crafters and artisans tables, refreshments and door prizes. Admission is free and provides a great opportunity to purchase some last minute gifts and stocking stuffers from local artisans. For more information contact Nick at 250 426 7006.

Sixth annual Starlite campaign underway Courtesy Donna Gr ainger

One of the best parts of living in the East Kootenays is the lifestyle if offers. Many people are born and raised here and many more are choosing to move here to raise their families. But we are also a small region compared to many other areas which presents a unique set of challenges.  In some cases, people seeking certain health services may need to leave their communities to receive treatment.  Some families must make hard decisions to relocate to ensure their loved ones have access to essential services.   These are just a few of the reasons why East Kootenay Foundation for Health’s Starlite Campaign exists; to help you find a way to help support your community’s  own health care

initiatives to improve and better address needs. Dr. Lawrence C. Jewett, MD. FRCS(C), Medical Director for the East Kootenay Interior Health Region encourages people from their local community and the region to support the Starlite Campaign.  “The donations gifted to the East Kootenay Foundation for Health helps fund health care facilities and programs in the region.  This support is an integral part of the quality of care available to residents living here in the East Kootenay.  Your donations are extremely important and beneficial for our hospitals, residential care homes and public health programs. By supporting the Starlite Campaign you will help your community and regional health care: • Work towards bringing

new health care options to your region that you may previously have had to travel great distances for. • Acquire new medical technology that makes treatments faster and more efficient. • Increase patient comfort and quality of care in home and in hospital. • Improve the standard of living, independence and enjoyment along with the quality of life for many seniors. • Provide many new options to families and children that ensure a stable and clear future in your community. Over the past five years your generous donations of over $404,000 to the Starlite Campaign has remained in the East Kootenays with over $385,000 from the campaign released to fund essential health care equipment and patient comforts in facilities throughout the

region. If you are interested in investing in the current and future health care needs of your community, please consider a donation towards the Starlite Campaign this holiday season.   Donate at your local hospital or health care facility or on-line at www.ekfh.ca.

Three children hurt in accident near Fernie Peter Meiszner Global News

Three children are in critical condition and their parents in stable condition after the vehicle they were traveling in, went off a highway and into a river near Fernie Sunday, Global News is reporting.

RCMP confirm a vehicle went off the road on Hwy. 3 (Crowsnest Pass) about 8 km west of Fernie just after 1 p.m. Sunday. Two of the children were taken to Alberta Children’s Hospital via ambulance jet. They are listed in critical condition.

The third child was taken to Elk Valley Hospital in Fernie, also in critical condition. The parents are said to be in stable condition in the Fernie hospital. The BC Ambulance Service says they responded to the accident scene with six ambulances and a jet.

The road was not plowed at the time and conditions were slushy, with about four inches of heavy slush on the road. It’s believed the vehicle lost control and went off an embankment into the river. Mike Greenwood, who saw the aftermath of the crash, told Global

News that he saw emergency workers trying to resuscitate two people, who were not breathing. Five ambulances responded to the accident, but it’s believed the car was underwater for a while before emergency crews arrived. As of press time, no further details were available.

Survey finds Canadians don’t want NFL here if it means demise of CFL TORONTO - An overwhelming majority of Canadians don’t want an NFL team in Canada, especially if it means the demise of the CFL, a survey suggests. Forty per cent of 1,007 on-line participants said they didn’t want an NFL team in Canada at all while another 41 per cent added they’d welcome an NFL franchise in this country only if it co-existed with the CFL. The survey, released Sunday, was conducted in mid-November by Reginald Bibby, a professor of sociology at the University of Lethbridge, and pollster Angus Reid Global. “They’d have to co-exist, that’s the simple bottom line,” Bibby said in a telephone interview. “Compared to 1995, if anything, that viewpoint seems to have solidified. “People are feeling stronger about it.” According to the survey, since ‘95 Canadians have become more insistent that they’d only want the NFL here if the CFL continued to exist (41 per cent versus 32 per cent). Also, more care about the issue now than 18 years ago (50 per cent compared to 33 per cent). The margin of error in the survey is plus or minus three per cent. Canadian Press

Kesler has 2 goals to send Canucks 3-2 over Hurricanes RALEIGH, N.C. - Ryan Kesler scored two goals to lead the Vancouver Canucks to a 3-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday. Tom Sestito also scored for the Canucks and Jason Garrison had two assists. Backup goalie Eddie Lack made 29 saves to help Vancouver pick up its third win in its past 11 games. Kesler’s second goal capped a stretch where the teams combined to score three goals in 37 seconds. Jordan Staal and Nathan Gerbe scored for Carolina. Cam Ward made 27 saves. The Hurricanes squandered six power-play opportunities against the NHL’s best penalty-killing unit and have lost six of their past eight games. Canadian Press

Oil Kings drill through Ice Reinhart siblings clash as Edmonton builds up an early lead to win 5-1 over Kootenay

cial Place. Oil Kings forward Curtis Lazar led the way with a goal and two assists, while Sam Reinhart notched the only marker for the Kooteany squad. Edmonton jumped up to a 2-0 lead late in the opening period, and built on their lead with a second period effort and a pair in the final frame. It was the third time that the Reinhart siblings of Sam and Griffin clashed this season, a mere few days after playing on the same Team WHL squad for the Subway Super Series. Griffin, who is Edmonton’s captain and property of the New York Islanders, earned

an assist on Lazar’s goal. “I think the key was that we got off to a good start, we were getting pucks on net and we had a couple goals that went in early,” said Reinhart. “Especially after last night [a 2-1 win over Lethbridge], we were snake bitten early and didn’t get them till late, it was good to get off with the lead.” Sam Reinhart broke the shutout for Edmonton netminder Tristan Jarry in the last 10 minutes of the game on a shorthanded breakaway. Edmonton did a slick job of keeping the Ice on the outside, which resulted in only 23 shots on the Oil Kings crease guardian. Mackenzie Skapski took the loss for

Kootenay, turning away 27 pucks. Edmonton also killed it with their transition game, which took advantage of Ice turnovers to generate quick, sustained pressure. “It’s tough to win games when you don’t have the puck,” said Ice blueliner Jagger Dirk. “Get the puck into their zone, but if we can’t put the pressure on them and keep it in their zone, it leads to transition goals—I think they scored a couple. “I thought we did a pretty good job of initially getting it in, but we didn’t put enough pressure on their defenceman, they where able to wheel and make a pass and come back right away.”

Brandon Baddock struck first for the Oil Kings late in the first period. Just over a minute later, Lazar tipped Reinhart’s point shot for a two-goal lead. After taking four penalty minutes all season, Sam Reinhart was slapped with a two-minute minor and ten minute misconduct for unsportsmanlike conduct. Over the course of the game, Landon Peel and Tim Bozon also earned 10-minute misconduct infractions. In the second period, Aaron Irving beat Skapski from the blue line, while a teammate also had a disallowed goal on a puck that was batted in on a high stick. Jaedon Descheneau had Kootenay’s best chance with the puck all alone in front of Jarry, but the Edmonton goalie stayed patient and made the save. Jarry also flashed the leather to make a sharp save on Reinhart, who came down on a shorthanded odd-man rush.

Nitros split with Creston, Fernie Tre vor Cr awley Sports Editor

The Kimberley Dynamiters split their weekend schedule, dropping a decision to the division-leading Creston Valley Thunder Cats, but recovering for an overtime win over the Fernie Ghostriders. With the win over the Riders, the Nitros keep a tenuous hold on second place in the Eddie Mountain division, two points ahead of Fernie. The T-Cats have a nice cushion and are ahead by nine points for first. Brandon Formosa and Trevor Hanna both notched a pair of goals to lead Creston over the Dynamiters. Alex Rosolowsky, Andrew Miller and Jared Marchi scored for Kimberley. Creston and Kimberley were knotted at 2-2 after the first, but the Thunder Cats kept scoring, while holding the Nitros at bay. Formosa and Hanna spotted the T-Cats to an early lead before Rosolowsky and Miller answered back for Kimberley. Formosa and Hanna both struck in the middle frame on powerplay and shorthanded

goals. Marchi brought the Nitros within one in the third period, but Seth Schmidt and Jonathon Watt finished it off for Creston.

Tyson Brouwer took the loss in goal for Kimberley, turning away 32 shots, while Brock Lefebvre and Magnus Viberg shared shared netminding duties, collectively making 29 saves. After the loss, the Nitros headed to Fernie to challenge the Ghostriders and nearly blew a two-goal lead to win 4-3 in overtime. The Nitros had a 3-1 lead going into the final period, but the Riders were able to mount a

comeback and tie it up to force an extra frame. Jason Richter was the overtime hero for the Dynamiters, scoring a powerplay goal with 36 seconds left to end the game. The two teams were knotted after one period on goals from Dylan Sibbald and Aidan Geiger. However, Kimberley pulled ahead on a pair of late goals with the man-advantage by Marchi and Darren Martin. Fernie got back into the game with a quick powerplay goal in the third period from Josh Teves and Aaron Neufeld tied it up with 1:33 left. Jeremy Mousseau earned the win, making 23 saves for the Nitros, while Fernie netminder Phoenix Logan-Hill turned away 24 shots. All four of Kimberley’s goals were scored with the man-advantage, going four for six, while Fernie potted one marker in five powerplay opportunities. Kimberley hosts the visiting Columbia Valley Rockies on Tuesday night at the Civic Centre.

Jones beats Carey to open Roar of the Rings Scot t Edmonds Canadian Press

WINNIPEG - It was all over in the sixth end as Jennifer Jones scored six against fellow Winnipeg skip Chelsea Carey on Sunday to open the Canadian Curling Trials with a commanding 10-2 win. “If we could score a six in every game, obviously I would be pretty excited,” Jones said. “It’s a long week but a short week. It’s a pretty short round robin from what we’re used to so you don’t want to get behind the eight ball early.” Carey, curling without third Kristy McDonald who was out with the flu, said she wasn’t letting the loss get to her and felt they played well, including alternate Breanne Meaken “We were just the wrong side of the inch,” said Carey. “My last rock picked in three and we were just off on everything after that. We were throwing it real good and the weight was really close and it would just rub a guard and we’d just miss the runback and my double in the fourth end just doesn’t quite move it far enough.” It wasn’t the only lopsided game as Edmonton’s Val Sweeting

defeated reigning Scotties champ Rachel Homan of Ottawa 10-3. In closer matchups, Ontario’s Sherry Middaugh defeated Saskatoon’s Stefanie Lawton 5-3 and Renee Sonnenberg of Grande Prairie, Alta., beat Edmonton’s Heather Nedohin 8-6. “One too many picks I think,” said Homan after the loss. “It’s always a little bit different from tournament to tournament. We’re just kind of learning the ice and getting a feel for it and next game we’re going to come out a lot stronger.” For Sweeting it was, well, sweet. The 26-year-old has only

been in one Scotties and is far from being a favourite in the trials. “Everyone likes a good underdog, so if that’s us, that’s totally fine with me,” she said. “We were a little fortunate in the beginning of that game . . I struggled early, I don’t think my team did.” The turning point in the Jones-Carey game was clearly the sixth end which put the veteran ahead 9-1. Carey started with the hammer and they had blanked the first and the fifth end, but Jones stole one in the second and two in the third, when Carey failed to hold her

shooter on an open hit, giving Jones a 3-1 lead. Facing a five in the sixth, Carey missed a shallow hit completely with her first rock. Jones elected to remove Carey’s centre-line guard with her first rock and Carey came off her own to roll close to the four but Jones raised hers to remove it and make it six. Jones may be one of the most successful curlers in Canada but she has never managed to even come to winning an Olympic berth. She failed to make the playoffs in her previous two attempts in 2005 and 2009.

Will Ferrell, aka Ron Burgundy, joined TSN for Canadian Curling Trials opener C anadian Press

WINNIPEG - It may be all to promote his new movie but actor Will Ferrell delighted curling fans Sunday, and a few curlers as well, as he brought anchorman Ron Burgundy to the Canadian Olympic Curling Trials. He even tried his luck on the ice, with a little tutoring from Ontario skip Glenn Howard, and then donned a kilt. “I’m really enjoying Winnipeg, the Paris of Canada,” he said later, staying in character for the entire visit. “The limo ride from the airport was first class all the way. They had roast pig for me. An entire roasted pig there in the limo.”

As for curling jargon, he said he knows what “hurry hard” means but uses it mostly to get the driver in front to start moving. Ferrell is promoting “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” set for release this month before Christmas. Saturday night he stopped in Bismarck, N.D., to do a local news program. But Sunday he joined TSN curling broadcaster Vic Rauter to comment on part of the opening draw of the trials, as the eight women’s teams vying for an Olympic berth squared off. The men were following later in the day at the event, which ends next Sunday.

Kootenay unable to counter Edmonton’s transition game Continued from page 8 “To score on a guy like him, you have to shoot the puck lots and get him moving side to side,” said Descheneau. “He’s a world-class goalie, one of the best in the league.” Import Edgars Kulda made it 4-0 for the Oil Kings in the third period, before Descheneau sprung Reinhart for a shorthanded breakaway to get Kootenay on the board. Brett Pullock finished off the scoring, picking up a loose puck after Reid Petryk drove to the net. “We weren’t ready to play,” said Dirk. “I thought we had a good

week of practice, but you can practice as much as you want, there’s a difference between practice and a game.

“We didn’t come out the right way we wanted and we didn’t improve throughout the game, which was our goal, and that’s why we lost.”

NOTES: The Ice hit the road on Sunday night to begin a fivegame road trip through the B.C. Division. Mike Dyck was on the bench for the Edmonton contest. Dyck is assisting Jay Henderson while bench boss Ryan McGill takes off for the World Junior Championships over the Christmas break. Ice defenceman Tanner Faith finally returned to the lineup after missing the last 21 games with an upper body injury. It was also BMO Ultimate Fan night, and Bev Sansom answered all the trivia questions correctly and will have a chance to win a trip to the MasterCard Memorial Cup in London, Ont.

HOROSCOPES by Jacqueline Bigar

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Keep reaching out to someone at a distance. You will be far more detached from a situation that seems to be triggering others. Don’t worry -- others will catch up. You might choose to explain your logic to a receptive audience. Tonight: Run a holiday errand or two. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You might want to listen to others more carefully. Note what is not being said as well as what is being said. When you read between the lines you will get a better sense of direction in an important partnership. Your instincts also guide you. Tonight: Be mysterious. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Others want to dominate. Let them be in control, or encourage them to think that they are. If you delegate, you’ll have an opportunity to have more “you” time. Whether you run out to do some shopping or just hang out at home, you will enjoy this. Tonight: A must appearance.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) You might want to approach a matter totally differently. Consider and investigate alternatives to take care of what is mandatory in order to get more free time. Brainstorm with associates if you don’t see the most effective solution. Tonight: Out late. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Consider that maybe you are not meant to “settle in.” Your unusual, creative and dynamic thinking might not be able to flourish in the status quo. Surprising news could come forward. You’ll have a lot of choices -- perhaps more than you might realize. Tonight: Be a wild thing. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Be willing to take a stand, even if you’re advised otherwise. You could be exhausted by a certain situation and your quest to find the right answer. Take news with a grain of salt. Assume the lead, as you are more grounded than others. Tonight: Into the wee hours. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Reach out to a dear friend

Tundra

whom you always enjoy. This person might have a different perspective that you often need to hear. Schedule a get-together very soon. In the meantime, listen to the feedback you receive. Tonight: A meeting could go late. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) A risk or an offer might not be the best path. You easily could make a mistake or a bad decision. Understand where someone else is coming from, yet be willing to say “no.” You will see life from a renewed perspective if you honor boundaries. Tonight: Your treat. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) If you are honest with yourself, you might not be sure as to which way to head with a personal matter. You might want to discuss a situation more openly. You will get what you want from this situation, but be sure you know what that is. Tonight: As you like it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Know when it is necessary to take a back seat. The unexpected will continue to be the

theme. You’ll have a choice either to sit back and get a sense of humor or to let yourself be somewhat upset. You know what is best for you. Tonight: Take a deep breath, then decide. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) A financial matter could be undermining you, if you allow it to. Look at your long-term personal goals before you take action. Initially, you could be uncomfortable, but you will make your life much better if you handle this now. Tonight: Celebrate a new beginning. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Take a stand. Your instincts will help you follow through on an important matter. You might feel pressured to process a problem. A new beginning becomes possible with a boss or supervisor. Be willing to ask for what you want. Now is the time. Tonight: No risk-taking. BORN TODAY Singer Britney Spears (1981), actor Lucy Liu (1968), fashion designer Gianni Versace (1946) ***

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

ANNIE’S MAILBOX by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: In 1988, I had a wife and three beautiful children. Then my wife decided to be “liberated.” She wanted to spread her wings and be independent. She engaged me in a particularly acrimonious divorce and lived on child and spousal support until she discovered that being independent was not working for her. She remarried and moved my children hundreds of miles away, effectively excising them from my life, even though she admits I was a great father. Needless to say, I harbor considerable animosity toward her. I’ve since remarried a wonderful woman. My children are grown and starting their own families. I recognize that I must endure the unpleasantness of having to see my ex at my children’s weddings, etc., but I never expected that my brother and sister would invite my ex to their own children’s weddings and other family functions. I feel that because my ex divorced me, she is no longer a part of my family and should not be invited to attend family gatherings. I have made this point very clear to my siblings, along with the fact that seeing my ex causes me significant pain. Further, my new wife feels she’s being upstaged by my ex at these events. Yet, my siblings insist on including this woman. Is it unrealistic for me to believe that when my ex divorced me, she also divorced my family? Am I expecting too much to ask that my siblings not embrace the woman who devastated my life? -- Divorced in Oregon Dear Oregon: Sorry to say, but what your siblings do is not something you can dictate. Their children may still consider this woman to be their aunt, and their relationship to her does not include the bitterness and rancor you are hanging onto. Please let it go. Allowing your ex to rattle you after all these years gives her power over you. You don’t have to enjoy her company, but you can work on making her presence insignificant. Dear Annie: Two years ago, my father and his wife became irritated with me and cut me out of their lives. When I became pregnant several months later, they got back in touch because they wanted to be a part of the baby’s life. My husband recently returned to college, and so we moved back into my mother’s house in order to save money. This angered my father and his wife, who said I am a bad mother and need to grow up. They shut me out again. My parents have been divorced for a long time. I was never close to my father or his new family. Dad is not a particularly nice guy, but I feel I should keep in contact. Now I’m wondering whether it’s worth trying to mend this relationship, or should I just admit it’s toxic and cut my losses? -- Had Enough in Michigan Dear Michigan: This doesn’t have to be either-or. You don’t have to turn yourself into a pretzel to stay in his good graces, but you also don’t need to cut him out entirely. Send him photos of the baby. Invite him to the birthday parties. But otherwise, limit contact and learn to ignore his criticisms. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Too Late To Try Again,” whose relative cut her off without explanation. The same thing happened to me. I attended a family reunion in Michigan four years ago. A cousin’s wife was the organizer, and I thought she did a great job. The next year, I didn’t receive an invitation. I contacted the wife, who blocked me on Facebook. I then contacted my cousin, who said, “The invitation was probably lost.” But when it happened the next two years, I knew it was intentional. I haven’t a clue what I did, but I’m glad I read that column. It saved me years of frustration. -- Thankful in Kansas Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

YOUR AD in the BULLETIN has staying power. has selling power!

With so many advertising mediums dividing the attention of potential customers, newspapers remain the most effective source for reaching consumers. Why? Simply put, newspapers reach more people, more often. Highly portable and highly visible, newspaper ads go with people and stay with them. That means your business is more likely to be on their minds when they’re in the market for related products or services. When it comes to spending your advertising dollars, make the choice that’s tried and true: newspaper advertising works harder for you.

December CounterAttack ROADCHECKS NOW UNDERWAY Today, the B.C. government, police and ICBC launched the annual December CounterAttack campaign to ask drivers to plan ahead for a safe ride home if their holiday festivities will involve alcohol. During December, an average of five people are killed in B.C. each year in crashes involving impaired driving. While attitudes towards drinking and driving have changed considerably over the years, an average of 95 lives are still lost each year and impaired driving remains a leading cause of car crash fatalities in B.C.* “We’ve come a long way since 1976, the year before CounterAttack roadchecks

started, when more than 300 people were killed in impaired related crashes each year in our province,” said Suzanne Anton, Attorney General and Minister of Justice. “Despite the progress, the numbers are far too high, which is why

we’re committed to reducing crashes involving alcohol and drugs and will continue to support enhanced enforcement, including the December CounterAttack campaign.” If your holiday festivities involve alcohol, make a plan before you head out. Arrange for a designated driver or use other options to get home safely – call a taxi or Operation Red Nose, take transit or call a sober friend.

“The reality is that approximately one third of all car crash fatalities in B.C. are related to impaired driving,” said Todd Stone, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure. “These are preventable tragedies. Safety is our top priority and we want everyone to do their part this Christmas season and look out for their friends and family – take a stand and don’t let them get behind

the wheel impaired.” Police across the province will be out in full force at CounterAttack roadchecks this holiday season looking for drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs. “Every December, we see people who think they’re okay to drive but end up causing crashes that change lives forever,” said Chief Constable Jamie Graham, Chair of the B.C. Association of Chiefs of Police Traffic Safety Committee. “The hardest aspect of a police officer’s job is telling a family they have lost a loved one as a result of one foolish decision – a loss that could have been prevented. We know there will be many gatherings this holiday season and that’s why officers across the province are dedicated to keeping impaired drivers off our roads.” “We want everyone to enjoy a safe holiday season with their family and friends,” said Mark Blucher, ICBC’s president and CEO. “Ask yourself if it’s your

VEHICLE IMPOUNDMENT FOR IMPAIRED DRIVING

1924 Cranbrook St. N. 250-489-4010 www.alpinetoyota.com

Drivers whose breath sample on a screening device is above .05 blood-alcohol content now face three- to 30-day vehicle impoundments, and other consequences. In B.C., a vehicle driven by someone with a blood-alcohol content (BAC) of .05 can be taken off the road by police and impounded for three to 30 days. The length of impoundment depends on the driver’s BAC, and whether they’ve been caught before. Police can continue to impound a vehicle for 24 hours, without needing a breath sample, when drivers are impaired by drugs, alcohol or both. The vehicle’s owner is responsible for all towing and storage costs. Other changes to the Motor Vehicle Act now mean impaired drivers also face an immediate roadside prohibition and higher costs.

A message from your friends at the... 803 Cranbrook Street N. 489-4301

DRIVE SAFE.

Getting your vehicle back For three- and seven-day impoundments you may go directly back to the impoundment lot. For impoundments longer than seven days, you will need to go to a driver licensing office with required ID, then collect your vehicle and pay related charges at the impoundment lot. Learn more about getting your vehicle back » Appealing a vehicle impoundment ICBC administers the filing of appeals on behalf of the Office of the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles (OSMV) for vehicle impoundments longer than seven days. Important: You cannot appeal a three- or a seven-day impoundment for impaired driving. To file an appeal for impoundments 30 days or longer, go to any driver licensing office. Be sure to bring your Notice of Impoundment with you.
