Steelworkers, RCR reach three year deal Deal still to be ratified by Trickle Creek Lodge and Kimberley Alpine Resort employees C AROLYN GR ANT

Union employees at both the Kimberley Alpine Resort and the Trickle Creek Lodge have new three year deal in hand just as the ski hill prepares to open. United Steelworkers Local I-405 lead negotiator for the deals Jeff Bromley says the negotiations went well right from the start. “With the abundance of white stuff on the hill and the anticipation of the upcoming ski season, we were able to secure improvements in wages and benefits for our members at Kimberley Alpine Resort and a significant wage increase for our members at Trickle Creek Lodge,” said Bromley. “In past rounds of bargaining, with the downturn in the economy, both memberships at the Ski Hill and the hotel shared the pain and didn’t receive significant wage increases over that time.


With KAR opening this weekend, let’s not forget that the Kimberley Nordic Trails were in great shape even before the big snow this week. Lots of skiers have enjoyed the early season conditions. Above, trail attendants, Jan and Tyra check Hebert before he heads out for a ski. Ski lessons are taking place in the background.

Winter Market moves to Green Door this weekend

Shop for the unique in Kimberley’s Platzl C AROLYN GR ANT

The Kimberley Winter Market moves from the Mark Creek Mall to the more cozy environs of the Green Door this Saturday and Sunday.

“The Kimberley & District Chamber of Commerce and the Green Door are teaming up to have a cozy holiday setting for this week’s market,” said Chamber Manager Mike Guarnery. “This week’s market will have 11 vendors.” After the weekend at the Green Door the Winter Market moves back to Mark Creek Mall until at

least December 21. The Winter Market is open to artisans, and people who have items they might like to sell for Christmas. The Chamber is looking for more vendors to participate in the markets. Guarnery says the price is right, for even the smallest home-based business. The cost for booth space will be $15.00 for Chamber mem-

Dine and 79


bers and $35.00 for non-Chamber members. Price includes both Saturday and Sunday. Some spaces will have access to electricity for an additional $5.

The 33rd annual Mass Choir concert, Cranbrook’s largest vocal event, was held at the Alliance Church for the second year in a row, on Wednesday, Dec. 4. Every seat in the 1,000-seat church was filled for the performance by 350 students from all nine of Cranbrook’s elementary schools, and featured a selection of carols, interspersed with readings from the gospels. The event serves as a fundraiser for the Salvation Army, and Captain Linda Green was on hand to meet student representatives of the schools prior to the concert. As of press time, the totals collected for the cause were unavailable.

Group’s aim: To help sick children SALLY MACDONALD Townsman Staff

Little Baby Q was born at about 28 weeks, weighing one pound and 14 ounces. Mom and Dad lived in the East Kootenay, but Baby Q needed the support at Calgary’s neonatal intensive care unit at Foothills Hospital. For the next three months, Baby Q stayed at Foothills. During that time, her mom stayed at Ronald McDonald House, while Dad travelled back and forth from Calgary to the East Kootenay to continue working. When Baby Q was finally able to come home, she still weighed only four pounds three ounces. She will continue to need visits to Calgary until she turns five. The new East Kootenay organization Friends of Children supported Baby Q and her parents during those long months of worry, stress, displacement and separation. Friends of Children, which opened its East Kootenay office in Cranbrook in October 2012, supports families whose children need medical care out of town by covering the cost of accommodation, gas, and parking. It helps with medical issues including cancer treatment,

premature birth and severe injuries. “The cost of it is the biggest one, and then where do you stay,” said coordinator Pat Chisholm. “Often moms are left and dads have to go back and continue on, or you have these families where it’s a third baby and somebody has to keep looking after the other children and working. “It gets very complicated for families, both cost wise but also socially and emotionally.” So far this year, Friends of Children has approved 123 family requests for assistance with expenditures, reaching $25,045. The majority of sick kids in the East Kootenay are sent to Calgary for treatment. In 2011 and 2012, East Kootenay children attended 1,334 medical appointments in Alberta. About 114 of those visits were for hospital admission. By contrast, 14 children from the region were admitted to B.C. Children’s Hospital in Vancouver during that time. The average cost of a family’s trip to Calgary for a one-day medical appointment is $335, including gas, parking and motel. Friends of Children began as a non-profit serving the Prince George area. But in 2009, Cran-

brook resident Gail Brown approached the organization about offering its services in the East Kootenay. “Gail talked to them about developing a satellite service for the East Kootenay that would be in line with what they did because she felt what they did was so important and would benefit the children in our region because there are very similar needs,” said Chisholm. The East Kootenay branch has been serving local families since 2009, but just last year opened an office in Cranbrook’s Kootenay Child Development Centre and brought Chisholm on staff to manage the family support. While the office is in Cranbrook, Friends of Children serves the entire region. “We have children on our caseload from Elkford, Sparwood, Creston, the east side of Kootenay Lake, all the way to Golden,” said Chisholm. She deals one-on-one with families, forwarding their needs to a dispersal committee that allots the funding. Before the trip, Chisholm will arrange accommodation for the family at their destination. “We book them ourselves because then families don’t have to worry about that,” said

Chisholm. “Not having to phone a motel, not having to figure out where the best rate is today... those are some tangible things that take the load off families.” Friends of Children will also reimburse for gas. For anything the organization can’t help with, Chisholm can refer the family to another organization. “Once people start knowing where to go and what to do, that starts to immediately decrease some of those anxieties,” she said. Friends of Children cannot help with ongoing therapies and intervention services, flights or dental appointments. They cover costs related to appointments anywhere outside the region, be it Calgary, Vancouver, Kelowna or elsewhere. “For the most part, anything that people ask for we do try to accommodate that or find alternate ways to fund that if we can’t,” said Chisholm. Most of Friends of Children’s expenses depend upon donations from the public. Costs for one family alone can get up to $10,000.

The RCMP is making impaired driving enforcement a national priority; stepping up enforcement efforts across the country to stop impaired drivers, beginning with an enforcement blitz on December 7, 2013. Cranbrook and Kimberley RCMP members along with East Kootenay Traffic Services will be conducting road checks throughout the region on Dec 7. If you are planning on drinking, please do not drive. By finding an alternative way home such as public transit, cabs, or a designated driver you can help ensure that you, and people sharing the road with you, get to their destination safely. It is important for people to realize that alcohol affects people in different ways. Factors such as diet, fatigue, and prescription drugs can change how alcohol affects an individual. It is possible to be considered impaired even if you have a Blood Alcohol Content below 0.08. The consequences of impaired driving are massive. You’re risking your life and the lives of others. You can be charged criminally and the ripple effect on you, your family and friends could be huge. Driving after using drugs, even prescription drugs, is just as dangerous as drinking and driving. Trained Drug Recognition Experts can determine that you’re under the influence of a drug and you can be charged with drug-impaired driving. RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson, “A small decision can have great consequences. Let’s make the right choice before we get behind the wheel. Everyone has the right to come home safe”

Changes A positive step for food sustainability proposed

Second season of Cranbrook’s public produce garden a big success

Now approaching the end of 2013, the Cranbrook Food Action Committee is reflecting on a positive second growing season for the Cranbrook Public Produce Garden. This year saw a dramatic increase in participation at the Garden and further development of garden beds and infrastructure. To increase accessibility to the Garden, particularly for seniors and those with physical disabilities, a 4 foot wide compressed gravel walkway was built this fall, leading from the street into the Garden. As part of the same project, funded by the Government of Canada New Horizons for Seniors program, at the end of the pathway is the newly constructed timberframe pergola that will make picnics and rest much more comfortable next year! A great number of people have made use of this communally managed Garden space, and the enthusiastic care en-

Many individuals in the community have donated plants, seeds, tools, and time toward the development of this space. Their many years of combined experience in local gardening has helped guide us in the right direction. The involvement by such groups as the Kootenay East Youth Program, Cranbrook Boys and Girls Club, Stepping

Out Program, Community Action Program for Children, Bellies to Babies, the Farmer’s Market Nutrition Coupon Program and school classes from Mount Baker High School, among others, contributed greatly to the growth of a healthy harvest all season long. The care and time given to the Garden this year by so many different people have helped cre-

ate a beautiful and productive space. Now that the pergola and walkway are in place, the second half of the Garden can be transformed to productive food growing space in the spring of 2014. As this converted space in Eric MacKinnon Park was historical farmland, the soil is so fertile there has hardly been the need to add amendments and the produce has been prolific.

As the winter months of reflection descend upon us, gardeners turn to dream time and the Cranbrook Food Action Committee invites you to include the Public Produce Garden in that space to contribute desires and ideas for the future. The success of this space is measured by the number of people actively involved, learning, and eating from the Garden. When the weather starts warming in the spring, keep your eyes and ears open for a celebration of our new pergola and planning sessions for the 2014 season. Thank you to everyone in the community for embracing this exciting project and the communal sense of ownership intrinsic in its success. It is a valuable community space for seniors, children, and every age in between. If you have questions or feedback, please contact Shannon at (250)427-7981, or like the ‘Cranbrook Food Action Committee’ Facebook page to stay updated. This project is funded by Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program.

Steelworkers, RCR reach tentative deal From page 1 “This time it went well right from the start. The employer came to the table with the intention of getting a deal and that’s exactly what happened.” USW Local 1-405 represents workers at both the Ski Hill and the Trickle Creek Lodge but they are separate agreements

and separate memberships. Both operations however are owned by Resorts of the Canadian Rockies (RCR). Trickle Creek has about 20 to 25 employees year round, while the ski hill has seven to 12 in the off season and about 120 during peak season, Bromley says. Kimberley Alpine

Resort is one of two ski hills organized by the Steelworkers in the province, the other being Red Mountain. “When the mine was open, the Steelworkers organized the ski hill, city hall, the credit union and then the hotel when it was built,” Bromley said. Both memberships still have to ratify the

proposed agreements. Ratification meetings are scheduled for Thursday, December 12, 2013 at 1PM for the Ski Hill employees in the Slopeside Cafeteria and Friday, December 13, 2013 at 1PM for the Trickle Creek Lodge employees in the Steeples room of Trickle Creek Lodge.

Both bargaining committees are recommending acceptance of the memorandums. “I want to thank the bargaining committee for their tireless work throughout this process and also the membership for their patience throughout the process,” added Bromley.

The Kimberley Rotary family From Page 3 December is Family Month, so traditionally we have a Holiday Celebration. This will be held on the 8th of December at the Gasthaus Am Platzl local restaurant, where we’ll have fun with family and friends. On December 13 we will be supporting the City employees with their annual holiday festivity; this time and effort helps city employees get a well deserved

break. Also in December we dedicate one of our weekly meetings to our families, who are invited to join in the celebrations of the season and enjoy some of the youngest members of our Rotary family. Throughout the year we have picnics and pancake breakfasts. For these events we encourage our younger family members to get involved. Let’s challenge our

children to serve others and have fun along the way.  “Service Above Self” is our motto. Our goal has always been to support Families not only locally but throughout the world. When you see us around town or working on the highways give us a wave or come join us for lunch. We meet at B.J.’s Restaurant & Pub on Wednesdays at noon. See you there.

Jesus’s awful family tree

new year in the life of the church began this past Sunday. We are once again in the season of Advent, a season of hope and preparation. In the season of Advent, the church looks both backwards and forward in time. We look backwards to the birth of Jesus. Jesus came proclaiming that the kingdom of God was near to us. In Jesus, God’s dream of a world made new and set right was given a fresh urgency. But the world we live in is not like that, so we also look forward in Advent to the possibility of God’s dream becoming a reality. That’s what makes Advent a season of anticipation and expectation. We are getting ready to celebrate the birth of Jesus at Christmas. We also examine ourselves to see how faithfully we are working in partnership with God for the healing of the world. In churches that follow the Revised Common Lectionary (a listing of texts we use in common), this is the year in which the gospel of Matthew sets the tone. Matthew begins his story about Jesus in a way that’s not very exciting—a genealogy. So–and–so begat so–and so, who begat so–and–so, and it goes on for 17 long verses. In the midst of the boredom, there is something very interesting about this genealogy. Most genealogies list only men. After all, it was a patriarchal culture. But Matthew breaks those boundaries and includes five women in his genealogy. And what women they are! All five of

these women share something in common: Sex scandals. Tamar tricks her father–in–law in Genesis 38 into having sex with her which leads to a pregnancy. Genesis 38:24 says quite plainly that Tamar has been ‘playing the whore’. The second woman, Rahab, was a prostitute who sheltered Israelite spies during the time when Israel was coming into the land. Rev. Yme The third woman is Ruth. Woensdregt She’s unmarried, yet doesn’t hesitate to sleep with an intoxicated Boaz at night. Ruth 3:7 tells us that Ruth ‘uncovered his feet’ and lay down beside him. That phrase is a Semitic euphemism for the male organ. The fourth woman, Bathsheba, was involved in adultery. You can find her story in 2 Samuel 11–12. The fifth woman was Mary. She was unmarried and pregnant. Her fiancé Joseph was bothered enough about this that he was ready to end the engagement. He changed his mind when he was assured in a dream that her pregnancy was God’s doing (Matthew 1: 18–25). All five women are the main characters in some pretty good stories. But frankly, those stories are a little embarrassing. If this were our family tree, we’d probably stop talking about great–great–great… grandmother for fear of embarrassing the family. At the very least, we’d skip over the details, and just hush the story up. But not Matthew. In fact, he highlights these five women in Jesus’ family tree. Why? It’s almost as if Matthew were saying

that God entered the world not just under the cloud of a scandal, but that God chooses to enter the world in the middle of small town gossip. If you’ve ever been the subject of that kind of gossip, you know exactly what that means. I think that Matthew means this as a hint about where and how God begins God’s work in the world. It’s the same kind of hint that Luke gives in his story about Jesus being born in a manger to peasant parents in some hick town in the Roman Empire. God comes to be with us—but not where we’d expect to find God. Not in churches. Not in world capitals. Not in superpower nations. God doesn’t start with the talented, the powerful, the rich or the famous. Rather, God begins with the poor, the immigrant, the homeless person on the street in the cold. God comes in the midst of moral scandal and gossip. God comes in the place of social shame and moral blame. Jesus is born to an unmarried pregnant teenager, born in a family which boasts of other women who have been shunned and blamed. This gives us a clue as to where we might look for God in our world—not in the churches. Not in official residences. Not in places of honour or beauty. God is found in places where the powerful and the respectable people least expect it—with the poor, among the homeless, loving the addicted, and lifting up those whom we push aside. Yme Woensdregt is Pastor at Christ Church Anglican in Cranbrook.

Opinion/Events Letters to the Editor

Candy Cane Lane: Dimmed but not diminished

I am writing this letter as a resident of Candy Cane Lane located in Cranbrook. On Sunday, December 1, I started out on my morning walk with my dogs and as I rounded the corner of my house something appeared out of order — the display of Christmas decorations that we put out annually was decidedly smaller, in fact there was a quantity of items gone from our yard. As I looked around the cul-de-sac I noticed that many of my neighbours were also missing things, or even worse, the decorations in their yards had been destroyed. I am deeply saddened by this act of idiocy. The residents of Candy Cane Lane

and in fact our entire community invest a lot of themselves to try to bring smiles by decorating our homes and properties to celebrate the season. To the curly haired driver and his unseen accomplice in the little dark-coloured truck piled high with stolen decorations, I hope you had fun destroying people’s hard work and creativity because after all that is what the decorations were all about, bringing joy and having fun. The police were called while this was happening at 3:30 a.m. and when they called to my neighbour approximately an hour later, after they had heard the description of the vehicle and driver they informed him the vehicle was “known” to them and they had been “watching” it throughout the evening. I understand that this crime of vandal-

ism/theft does not rank very high on the police priority but I think it should rank very high as a community priority. We need to let individuals who do these types of things be aware that we will not accept this revolting behaviour and we will do all within our power to educate, inform and support that this is not acceptable and consequences for actions actually do exist. Please, if anyone has information regarding this despicable act, contact your police. I would also like to let everyone know that Candy Cane Lane is alive and well. The lights are on albeit a little dimmer and the spirit of the season continues to thrive in our little cul-de-sac. Mark & Trish Wagner Cranbrook

Sherlock Holmes and the mysterious Dr. Bell: The Final Chapter


Then & Now

Jim Cameron


he dismal November day turned inevitably into night as Sherlock Holmes and I, comfortably ensconced in our London apartments at 221B Baker Street, considered the letter recently arrived. At first glance it appeared nothing more than queries directed towards the great detective from a fellow by the name of Jim Cameron, of Cranbrook, British Columbia. I reviewed the contents as Holmes paced about the sitting-room. “It would seem that Mr. Cameron has long been intrigued by the fact that the main thoroughfare in his home town is named Baker Street” “Quite so, Watson,” Holmes replied. “Most probably named after a bakery that once stood there,” I surmised. “Not in this case. The street is named for town founder Colonel James Baker.” “Indeed? I knew he travelled to the colonies but I had no idea he was responsible for an entire

“I am afraid I can tell nothing of either man. They are both a mystery.” town.” “He is, and according to Mr. Cameron it is a place of some substance. But there is more to the Baker story that concerns us” “Mr. Cameron attempts to connect you to his hometown but is there any connection between you and James Baker?” “If Mr. Cameron states the truth then, indeed, there is a connection to James Baker through his brother Valentine.” “Pasha Baker? I know

of him from my army days. He was somewhat of a legend among the lads.” “Then you are aware of the scandal that fell upon him? He was accused of accosting a lady in a private train carriage thereby destroying a very promising career and placing him in gaol for a time.” “Of course, but how does that signify?” “Mr. Cameron states that a gentleman by the name of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle has written a story based, in

part, upon the scandalous events involving Valentine Baker. Further, it would appear that you and I figure largely in the tale, Watson.” “That is preposterous!” I exclaimed, reaching instinctively for my Webley service revolver, only to recall it was locked in the desk drawer. “No need for that.” said Holmes, noticing my reaction. “Apparently the characters in his story, “The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington

Plans,” reflect closely our actual selves. The tale concerns a gentleman by the name of Colonel Valentine Walter, his brother James and the murder of a man on a train. We, along with my brother Mycroft, discover Colonel Walter to be the murderer, whereupon he is sent to languish in prison.” “More than a coincidence, to be sure. It certainly ties us indirectly to the Baker family.” “It is not all, Watson. Mr. Cameron is searching for information regarding a Dr. J.H.M. Bell, apparently a relative of Dr. Joseph Bell. Do you recognize the name?” “It doesn’t ring a —” A curt glance from Holmes prevented me from continuing. “According to Cameron, there is some evidence that a Dr. J.H.M. Bell worked and resided in Cranbrook for a period of at least three years beginning in 1911, the year his supposed relative Dr. Joseph Bell died. He has had no luck tracing the connection between the two and has asked for our assistance. Apparently Dr. Joseph Bell was renowned for his use of deduction in criminal investigation and using methods very similar to mine did a great deal for modern forensics. As it is, I am afraid I can tell Mr. Cameron nothing of either man. They are both as much a mystery to me as the letter itself.” “I’m afraid I don’t take your meaning?”

Tom Higgins stepping down immediately as the CFL’s director of officiating



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

TORONTO, Ontario - The CFL is in need of a new director of officiating. The league announced Thursday that Tom Higgins is leaving that post effective immediately. “It’s our understanding Tom intends to seek a position on the competitive side of football, as a coach, general manager or administrator,” CFL commissioner Mark Cohon said in a statement. “We thank him for his efforts and wish him the very best in his future endeavours.” Higgins became the CFL’s director of officiating April 15 2008. Prior to joining the league’s head office, Higgins spent more than 25 years as a player, coach and personnel director. Twice he was named the CFL’s coach of the year and in ‘03 led the Edmonton Eskimos to a Grey Cup title as the club’s head coach. “Tom’s tenure as director of officiating has seen the introduction of many improvements and innovations from the debut of the Command Centre for video review to the introduction of position coaches to the addition of a co-ordinator for the development of amateur officials,” Cohon said.

Reliever Wilson agrees for $10M, one year with L.A. Dodgers, according to report A person with knowledge of the negotiations says free-agent reliever Brian Wilson has agreed to terms on a $10 million, one-year contract to stay with the Los Angeles Dodgers. The deal is pending a physical, the person said Thursday, speaking on condition of anonymity because the team had not made an announcement regarding the quirky, bearded pitcher. Wilson’s new contract includes an option for the 2015 season. Wilson, a right-hander and the 2010 majors saves leader while with San Francisco, joined the NL West champion Dodgers last season after a second Tommy John elbow ligament replacement surgery. He missed almost the entire 2012 season when the Giants won their second World Series in three years. Wilson went 2-1 with a 0.66 ERA in 18 outings this year for Los Angeles. Associated Press

Lindsey Vonn plans to enter World Cup races at Lake Louise LAKE LOUISE, Alta. - With her eyes wide and a big smile, Lindsey Vonn declared on Thursday that she is ready to race for the first time in 10 months. In an interview with The Associated Press and USA Today Sports, Vonn said she will return to competition in a World Cup downhill on Friday, the latest major step in her push to get ready for the Sochi Olympics. She has not raced since a high-speed crash at the world championships in February, when she tore two ligaments in her right knee and broke a bone in her lower leg. About 2 1/2 weeks ago, Vonn partially re-tore one of those reconstructed ligaments in a crash while training in Colorado. Associated Press

Dirk on last road trip through B.C. Ice defenceman relishing a final expedition through his home province

TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

For Jagger Dirk, there’s no place like home. He may not be heading through Penticton, but it will be close enough. The Kootenay Ice are heading through the B.C. Division in a five-game road trip, and will swing through the Okanagan where the overage defenceman grew up. Due to scheduling issues, the Ice and B.C. Division teams alternate travel, as Koote-

nay heads on the road once every two years, while the opposition comes up to Cranbrook on alternating seasons. This will be his third and final trip of his WHL career going back through his stomping grounds. “Being 20 and the last time I’m able to go through that B.C. road trip, it’s going to mean a lot to me,” said Dirk, following a 5-1 loss to the Oil Kings last Saturday night at Western Financial Place, “because I started my WHL career in Vancouver five years ago, so it’s going to be bittersweet.” Entering his fifth season of his career, Dirk has developed to be a staple on the back end with an offensive touch, and, like his jersey number, is currently fifth in team scoring with three goals and 15 assists. Dirk began his ju-

nior career in the BCHL, playing with the Salmon Arm Silverbacks, before being called up to the Ice full time, starting with his first career WHL game against the Giants on Dec. 2, 2009—a 6-2 win for Kootenay. “16 [years old], came in and played Vancouver where my dad played his Canucks career, it’s pretty special,” continued Dirk. “Hopefully we end it the right way, with a sweep, that’d be nice. We’re definitely capable of doing it if we play the right way.” So far, the road trip hasn’t gone favourably for the Ice. The team dropped a 3-0 decision to the Royals in Victoria, and despite putting in a better effort in Vancouver, the Giants stole a 3-2 victory on some solid goaltending. The Ice will take on the Kamloops Blazers

on Friday, which are dwelling in the basement of the Western Conference but that’s no excuse to take them lightly. It will be a reunion for the two teams that consummated a trade earlier in the season that sent former Ice players Collin Shirley, Matt Thomas and draft picks to Kamloops in exchange for Landon Cross and Tim Bozon. Ice assistant coach Jay Henderson is under no illusions that they have their work cut out for themselves. “It’s going to be some tough games still coming up, and it’d be nice to come out ahead on this trip with three wins, three opportunities to play,” he said, after Wednesday’s loss in Vancouver. “But I thought tonight’s performance was much better, it was just about capitalizing and we didn’t do that, but the

effort was there, for sure.” While Kamloops is struggling, Kelowna is on the opposite end of the spectrum, sitting in second place in the Western Conference and on top of the B.C. Division. With Cranbrook-born head coach Ryan Huska leading from the bench, the Rockets have only one loss in 14 games. Four Rockets players are property of NHL teams that were picked up in the 2013 draft. Both games should have some familiar faces in the stands cheering for Dirk. “I know lots of friends and family are going to come to the Ka m l o o p s - Ke l o w n a games, so I’m excited to see them,” said Dirk. “I haven’t seen them in a while, but I’ve obviously got to concentrate on the game when it’s game time.”

Jacobs, Jones earn final berths at Olympic curling trials C anadian Press

WINNIPEG - Reigning Canadian champion Brad Jacobs defeated veteran Kevin Martin 5-4 on Thursday to clinch a spot in Sunday’s final of the Canadian Olympic curling trials. The battle of the best took Jacobs’ record to 6-0, but Martin goes to 5-1 and earns a berth into Saturday afternoon’s semifinal. The other semifinalist won’t be determined until the men finish their seven-game Roar of the Rings round robin with a morning draw Friday at the MTS Centre. With Martin leading 4-3, Jacobs blanked the eighth and ninth ends to keep the hammer in the 10th. Both rinks had a pair of rocks inside the fourfoot, with a Jacobs’ stone almost dead centre in the button. Martin then put up a guard, forcing the 28-year-old Jacobs to do a run-back takeout and score two points. Martin, who won gold at the 2010 Olympics and silver in 2002, is looking for a fourth trip to the Games. The 47-year-old was leading Jacobs 3-1 after four ends, but Jacobs scored two in the sixth to tie it up. Martin looked like he was going to taken ad-

vantage of Jacobs’ misses in the seventh end and score two, but after he took out a Jacobs’ stone his own rock was just barely swept out of the rings for the 4-3 lead. A duel between the Winnipeg rinks skipped by Jeff Stoughton and Mike McEwen ended with McEwen defeating the veteran 9-6. Stoughton, who dropped to 2-4, was given a standing ovation. McEwen sits at 3-3. Before competing in his fifth trials, Stoughton said it’ll be his last attempt to go to the Olympics. McEwen jumped to a 5-1 lead after the third end when he scored four against the two-

time world champion, but Stoughton stole two in the fifth to close the gap 5-4. McEwen stretched the lead to 9-5 after a draw for three in the eighth end. Winless Kevin Koe of Calgary drew to the button to claim his first victory of the competition with a 7-6 decision over veteran Glenn Howard of Coldwater, Ont. (2-4). John Morris, who curls out of Kelowna, B.C., improved to 4-2 with a 7-6 win over John Epping of Toronto (1-5). Friday’s action features games between Martin and Morris, Stoughton and Howard, McEwen versus Koe and Epping against Jacobs.

Rachel Homan didn’t care how she got a spot into the Canadian curling trials semifinal, it just mattered that her rink got one. The defending Canadian champion defeated Stefanie Lawton of Saskatoon 6-5 in the final game of the seven-game round robin to finish 4-3, but Winnipeg’s Chelsea Carey and Ontario’s Sherry Middaugh also sported the same mark. Homan got bumped to the semi, though, because her Ottawa rink fared better than Carey and Middaugh’s teams on rankings based on draws to the button before games throughout the week. “It wasn’t import-

ant,” Homan said of avoiding a tie-breaker. “It’s nice to be able to get second place and go into the semi. Either way we had a chance and that’s all we needed.” Carey and Middaugh will play their tie-breaker Friday at 1:30 p.m. (CT), with the winner taking on Homan later that night at 6:30. Winnipeg veteran skip Jennifer Jones already earned a bye into Saturday night’s final (6:30 p.m. CT) and will watch her competitors battle it out. Jones, 39, defeated Edmonton’s Heather Nedohin 6-5 to finish her round robin at 6-1, while Nedohin ended with a 3-4 mark.

Curling to apply for mixed doubles in Olympics Ste ve Dougl as Associated Press

Curling officials will apply to add mixed doubles to the Olympic program in time for the Pyeongchang Games in South Korea in 2018. Since returning to the Olympics in 1998, two curling events have been contested at each games - the men’s and women’s competitions. The World Curling Federation made a tentative bid in 2005 to include mixed doubles on the Olympic program for the 2010 Vancouver Games, but it was rejected because the discipline

hadn’t spread globally. However, WCF president Kate Caithness said “mixed doubles is part of our sport that has taken off around the world,” with the governing body spending the last eight years developing the spread to meet the technical requirements for Olympic admission. The application will be made after next year’s Sochi Games and decision will be reached by the IOC in 2015. If it is accepted, mixed doubles would be a 16team competition. “It would allow other countries who wouldn’t perhaps have

the chance of going to the Olympics with a full men’s team and full women’s team to take part in the Olympics,” Caithness told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. “We have mixed doubles in world championships so we have done our homework. Hopefully it will appeal to the IOC.” Caithness said the discipline would fit “in the same venue, in the same timeframe and with the same officials” as the men’s and women’s events. Hungary is the current world champion in mixed doubles.

Jamie Benn playing his way onto men’s Olympic roster Stephen Whyno Canadian Press

TORONTO - Jamie Benn can’t always get what he wants. Over the summer Benn wanted to be invited to Team Canada’s Olympic orientation camp and named captain of the Dallas Stars. Hockey Canada didn’t put him on the list but Benn did become the NHL’s third-youngest captain. Funny thing is, those parallel events have combined to make Benn something of a force this season and a legitimate candidate to represent Canada in Sochi. That spark started with being snubbed from camp. “He really is playing like a possessed player,” Stars coach and Team Canada assistant Lindy Ruff said Thursday. “He’s done some great things for our team.

“He’s led our team in a lot of categories. There’s been nights where we needed big plays and big goals, there’s been nights where we needed physical play and he’s really supplied almost everything.” Benn has seven goals and 18 assists in his first 26 games, second only to Chris Kunitz of the Pittsburgh Penguins among Canadian-born left-wingers. The 24-year-old was a centre earlier in his career with the Stars, but the off-season acquisition of Tyler Seguin from the Boston Bruins allowed Benn to move back to his more natural position. “I’m comfortable in both spots, but it’s pretty nice going back to left wing,” Benn said. “It’s where I played almost my whole life. “Obviously to have Tyler in the middle at

his regular position, we’re feeding off each other pretty well.” That move could also help Benn make Team Canada, which is stacked at centre with Sidney Crosby, Jonathan Toews, John Tavares, Eric Staal and many others. “I mean it was going to be tough to beat out Crosby, I think, at centre,” Benn said, smiling. “I guess I’ll go back to left wing. “I think there’s a lot of great centres in this league that are going to have to play different positions on that team. I guess it’s a little bit of an advantage to play your normal position on wing.” Benn also has the advantage of being coached by a member of Mike Babcock’s Olympic staff. Ruff “sees the good and the bad and what goes on during

the year,” Benn said, while the rest of Canada’s management staff has remained handsoff. But Benn has been in the spotlight since he said he wanted to shove it in Team Canada’s face for not making him one of the 47 players invited to Calgary for camp. Babcock said back in August he wanted players who weren’t invited to get the message. “I read or hear, ‘Oh this guy feels snubbed.’ So what? Do something about it,” Babcock said. “The great thing about life is you get to control what happens to you the majority of the time. Do something about it if you’re not here.” Benn has. He conceded being “a little disappointed” over the summer but hasn’t shied away from calling it a source of motivation.

“Whenever you can have a chance to represent your country in anything it’s obviously pretty special,” he said. “I’m just obviously focusing on the Stars and what I have to do to help this team win, but I definitely want to make them have a hard decision in choosing the team this year.” It’s a hard decision because there are so many players in Benn’s spot on the borderline between Sochi and a two-week vacation while the Olympics are going on. “You’ve got to let your playing do your speaking in these situations, and I think he’s gone into some tough buildings and played pretty well for us,” Ruff said. “I think any player that’s in that bubble category, all they can do is put numbers up and play well.”

Redblacks hire Calgary defensive co-ordinator Campbell as head coach

The Ottawa Redblacks have found their man. According to a CFL source requesting anonymity, the Redblacks have chosen Calgary Stampeders defensive co-ordinator Rick Campbell as their first head coach. They’re expected to make it official Friday morning at a news conference. Ottawa is scheduled to return to the CFL in 2014. Campbell is a 15-year CFL coaching veteran but the Ottawa appointment would be his first as a head coach. Campbell is the third CFL head coach to be hired this off-season behind Edmonton’s Chris Jones and Winnipeg’s Mike O’Shea. All three are first-time CFL head coaches. Campbell is the son of legendary Edmonton Eskimos head coach and executive Hugh Campbell and has spent the last two years as Calgary’s defensive co-ordinator. This past season, Calgary recorded a CFL-best 63 sacks en route to posting a league-best 14-4 record. But the Stampeders lost 35-13 to eventual Grey Cup-champion Saskatchewan in the West Division final. Campbell had been mentioned as a leading candidate for Edmonton’s head-coaching job, which went to Jones. Campbell succeeded Jones as Calgary’s defensive co-ordinator in 2012 when Jones left to join the Toronto Argonauts. Canadian Press

Energy Minister rejects plea for hydro rate deal from school trustees Canadian Press

VICTORIA — Energy Minister Bill Bennett has turned down a request from the British Columbia School Trustees Association for a special deal or exemption from looming BC Hydro rate increases, which are forecast to rise by 40 per cent over the next decade. Bennett said Thursday that if he grants a special deal to school boards, taxpayers, businesses and industrial power users must make up the difference through even higher rates. A nine-per-cent increase is set to take effect next April — the first of five years of hikes that total more than 25 per cent.

The trustees association said the higher rate in April will increase total hydro rates at 1,600 public schools to $39.6 million from $35.5 million, likely sparking program cuts for students. “No, we won’t be granting school boards an exemption from the payment of their electricity bills,’’ Bennett said. “The nine per cent increase in the first year amounts to less than one-tenth of one per cent of the total budgets of school boards. Everybody else is going to have to manage it, including the government, and everyone else is doing their best to manage budgets from all different types of perspectives.’’


“We believe they can manage the impact of this rate increase,’’ he said. Trustees association president Teresa Rezansoff said the nine per cent increase means school boards will have to find an extra $4.1 million, and an estimated $29 million for increased hydro costs over the next five years. Hydro costs for more than 1,600 schools across the province already amount to $35.5 million a year. School boards get limited funding, and the rising utility costs will lead to additional staff losses and fewer student services, Rezansoff said.

Cold weather leads to higher demand for electricity Submit ted

As the temperatures drop, BC Hydro is expecting an increase in the overall provincial electricity use. Electricity demand peaked at 9,102 megawatts, on Monday evening between 5 and 6 p.m. This compares to a peak of only 8,723 megawatts last Mon-

day. Generally, BC Hydro sees the highest demand for electricity between 4 and 8 p.m. on weekday evenings – the time of day when people come home, turn up the heat, do their laundry, make dinner, switch on the T.V., etc. BC Hydro expects demand to stay high in the evenings this week


as the cold weather persists throughout the province and is expecting a peak of 9,500 to 10,000 megawatts this week. The highest peak demand on record was observed on Nov. 29, 2006, when consumption reached 10,113 megawatt, between 5 and 6 p.m.  British Columbians

house only when they are home. Most of the electricity generated and used in BC is produced by large facilities in the north and the southeast of the province. The GM Shrum generating station and the Peace Canyon generating station on the Peace River produce about one-third of the

can take steps to reduce energy use to offset an increase in heating requirements. Easy ways British Columbians can save on their daily power use include: washing clothes in cold water, turning off the ‘heat dry’ function on the dishwasher and using a programmable thermostat to heat their

electricity generated in B.C. each year, and the Columbia River facilities – including Revelstoke, Mica and Seven Mile – produce about one-half. The electricity is distributed to cities and towns using 76,000 kilometres of distribution and transmission lines.

Life with a workaholic, and life with you Hi Wendy: My husband is a workaholic, and I thought it would be a good idea to book us a little holiday this month. I need to get away from everything and everyone and have a little alone time together for a change. When I told him about my surprise he did not seem the least bit interested. I was wondering if

you see this trip I planned for us as being a fun one? Will he co-operate and at least try to enjoy himself or will he just complain like he always does? We were supposed to go to our son’s for Christmas but everyone seems to be working, including, of course, you know who, and it’s just not in the cards for this year. Will my son be coming home anytime in the

New Year and if so can you tell me when? I’m also worried about my mom’s health. Can you tell me if she will be okay while we go away for a few days? My aunt and my sister will be coming home during the Christmas holidays and they were wondering if they could come and see you. I think my aunt would like to talk to her husband who


went to heaven last year. I wasn’t quite sure if you worked during the holiday season. I have a good life, Wendy, and my husband is a good man and a good provider. I

er, there are those type of workaholics who work themselves into oblivion because they don’t want to face life or the problems in their lives. Fortunately for you, your husband is not of that nature and neither am I; thank the dear Lord. I do see him liking the little getaway that you planned, but after about the third day you will start to notice that he will be getting a little annoying and start complaining. Fortunately, you made the right move with your plans because it’s not a long drive to get to your destination and by the time the fifth day rolls around you will be at home and glad he is going back to work. So enjoy the first three days and hold your breath for the last two days until you get home. Have a nice long bath after your trip and all will be well. I did a spec on your husband and he is not a nasty man nor is he a verbal abuser. He is strong willed and likes what he likes and tells you so, and you just sink your head in the sand like an ostrich and don’t listen to him. What I’m trying to say is you can still enjoy each other even though you like to do different things. For example: I don’t think your husband would get mad if you went away with your girlfriends for a few days when you need to get away. Your husband is quite independent and, like I said, knows who he is and what he likes. You, on the other hand, seem to be quite dependent on him and find yourself somewhat lost when he is not with you. Your learning lesson is that you can be with someone you care about deeply and still be independent and learn to do your “own thing,” if you know what I mean. So, to put it plainly give the guy a break — he is a good husband and provider like you said. He’s not a cheater and has a laidback personality.

You, on the other hand, have a highly stressful job and are quite hyper at times and need to let off some steam. This means you need to find something for yourself that gives you enjoyment and releases stress. It’s called being an individual and not losing your identity and still able to live with someone under the same roof in harmony. I think if you change your attitude about this situation with hubby you will enjoy his company a lot more. This also means when you do plan trips, cut the time down for him and all will be well. That’s called being considerate and knowing who you are married to and trying not to change them. I know I am being a bit blunt with you but when your husband tries to tell you what he wants, you dig your heels in and get a little belligerent and this makes him more anxious. We see your son and family coming home at the end of February of 2014; it’s the only time he and his wife can get off work, unfortunately. I asked my guides about your mom and they said she would be fine for the few days you are away. Yes, I will be working as usual during the holiday season and it would be fine if your sister and aunt would like to come and see us for a reading. It’s a wonderful time to channel over and talk to loved ones on the other side. So, tell them when they come to town to phone me and I will book them in. I am already getting calls from out of town for readings and this is not abnormal during the Christmas season. Wendy

The War on Democracy in Thailand


has gone quiet in Bangkok, as the people who have been trying to overthrow the government tidy up the debris that litters the city after the last two weeks of demonstrations. It’s King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s 86th birthday this week, and nobody wants to disrupt it with unseemly scenes of conflict. Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra is taking an equally low-key approach. The Thai army has removed the barbed wire that sur-

rounded government offices, and protesters are wandering through the prime minister’s offices and picnicking on the lawns while she runs the affairs of state from some other location in the capital. But by next week the Civil Movement for Democracy will be back in action, and the final outcome is not clear. The main thing that distinguishes the Civil Movement for Democracy is its profound dislike for democracy. In the mass demonstrations that have shaken

Thailand since 24 November, its supporters have been trying to remove a prime minister who was elected only two years ago – and their goal is not another election. “We don’t want new elections because we will lose anyway,” one protester told Reuters. “We want (the prime minister’s family) to leave the country.” If they succeeded in driving Yingluck from power, they would skip the whole business of elections and hand the country over to an ap-

Sherlock Holmes and the mysterious Dr. Bell: Part II Continued from page 7 “I am just coming to grips with it, but apparently it all connects by way of Arthur Conan Doyle.” “The writer who based his detective story upon you?” “No, Watson. Rather the writer who based me upon Dr. Joseph Bell.” At this I was struck dumb. Holmes’ words seemed to make no sense and I supposed I had misunderstood. “What precisely are you saying, Holmes?” “I am saying, my friend, that I deduce from Mr. Cameron’s letter that I am a fictional character based upon a doctor who may or may not have had a relative who lived in the town of Cranbrook in the year 1911.” “It can’t be, Holmes. If you are a fictional character then I, as your colleague, would have to be ...” Words escaped me as the full import of the matter slowly came clear. I collapsed in the nearest chair. “How can you possibly believe this to be fact, Holmes?” “It is the date that the letter is written, among other things. See for yourself.” “But there was no date upon the letter.” “Not the letter Watson, the envelope.” Holmes passed me the same and I gasped involuntarily upon viewing the postmark. “Good Heavens, November 2013, nearly a century from now.”

“I have undertaken numerous scientific experiments and have determined that the paper, the ink, all is unknown to me. It is either produced by a hand much more clever than I, a feat I sincerely doubt, or it is,” Holmes paused, “exactly what it claims to be.” “But surely that is impossible.” “The impossible is often simply the unknown, as you well know.” “Are we to believe that our names will be known one hundred years from now? “Indeed. Mr. Cameron states that in his time

all and sundry know of the deeds of Sherlock Holmes and his colleague Dr. John Watson. Every library in the land holds accounts of our doings. Why, the tales are studied from university to the lowest scholastic levels, including – “Don’t say it, Holmes.” I pleaded. “Elementary, my dear Watson, elementary.” I could swear the great detective suppressed a smile as he turned towards his desk. “But come, there may be little we can do for Mr. Cameron but, fictional or otherwise, the world of crime awaits us.”

pointed “People’s Council” made up of “good men”. These good men would naturally agree with protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban that the majority of the Thai people are too ignorant and flighty to be trusted with the vote. “From a Western point of view, “democracy” is an elected government serving as the people’s representative,” he told The Guardian. “Unfortunately, elections in Thailand do not represent people’s (real) choices because their votes are bought.” They are “bought” not by bribes but by government spending on free health care and anti-poverty programmes. In most democracies this is seen as part of the normal political process, but Suthep and his supporters, who include a high proportion of the country’s professional and middle classes, especially in the capital, regard it as illegitimate. The current government has destroyed “the virtues and ethics of the people,” Suthep says, but with time and hard work the unelect-

Gwynne Dyer ed People’s Council could make them moral again and “put the country on the path to perfect democracy.” We can even imagine that the poor might eventually become enlightened enough to be trusted with the vote again. There is a conflict between the interests of the rich and the poor in most countries. In democracies it normally plays out in the electoral competition of rightand left-wing parties, and some compromise (always temporary and contentious) is arrived at via the ballot box. But in Thailand, the rich take to the streets. They do so because they always lose the elections. In five elections since 2001, the winner every time has

been Thaksin Shinawatra or somebody chosen by him. Thaksin is a man of humble origins who built the country’s largest mobile phone provider and then went into politics. He proved to be unbeatable. He set up programmes like village-managed micro-credit development funds and low-interest agricultural loans. He created a universal healthcare system and provided lowcost access to anti-HIV medications. Yet between 2001 and the coup that overthrew him in 2006, the GDP grew by 30 percent, public sector debt fell from 57 per cent of GDP to 41 per cent, and foreign exchange reserves doubled . He even managed to balance the budget. Income in the northeast, the poorest part of the country, rose by 41 percent. Poverty nationwide dropped from 21 percent to 11 percent, and the prevalence of HIV/AIDS declined. Thaksin even allowed the 2.3 million migrant workers in the country to register and qualify for health cover.

From the point of view of the opposition Democratic Party, all this was just “buying the people’s votes.” When Thaksin won the 2005 election with an increased majority, it conspired with the military to overthrow him. He was then tried on corruption charges, but fled the country before the inevitable verdict and has since lived in exile, mostly in Dubai. But his party, reformed and renamed, goes on winning every time there is an election. That’s why his 27-year-old sister is now the prime minister. She probably does do what he says most of the time, but there’s no crime in that: the voters who put her there were really voting for Thaksin. And if the current insurrection in Bangkok overthrows her, they will vote for whoever else represents Thaksin next time there is an election. The right in Thailand should really grow up and get over it. Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist whose articles are published in 45 countries.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

ANNIE’S MAILBOX by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: My boyfriend and I have been together for two years, and he moved in six months ago. “John” is 25 years older than I am. He has always been supportive and helpful, but now he is displaying passive-aggressive behavior. John was forced into retirement last year, and I think he somehow blames me. I work full time, take care of two teenage boys, cook dinner every night, do dishes and laundry, clean the bathrooms, buy the groceries and pay the bills. John sweeps and vacuums and does the yard work, which is a godsend because I have had shoulder issues that make these things difficult for me. But lately, John has been pushing all of my buttons. He throws the towel over the shower door even though there is a nearby towel rack. I know it’s a small thing, but it’s a daily nuisance, and he knows it bugs me. He also does not squeegee the shower after he uses it, and I’m the one who cleans it. And he leaves the toilet seat up -- but only when the toilet is dirty, which is his way of telling me it’s time to clean it. He leaves dishes in the sink instead of loading the dishwasher, even though I’ve asked him to at least leave them on the counter. When they are piled in the sink, I have no room to prepare dinner. I know these are tiny things, but they add up, especially when I’m working all day while he is watching TV. When he’s upset with me, he gives me the silent treatment, and often it takes me days to figure out why. I know John is depressed because of his retirement, but he is well situated, doesn’t have to pay any bills and gets home-cooked meals every day. I love him dearly, but I am going nuts walking on eggshells. What am I doing wrong? -- Massachusetts Dear Massachusetts: Nothing. You did not live with John before his retirement and don’t really know whether he was always like this. His age may also be a factor in that he might be less energetic and capable than he was a year ago. And depression could cause him to push you away in these subtle ways, feeling he doesn’t deserve you. Please talk to him. Tell him you love him, but that the current situation is making you worry your feelings aren’t reciprocated. Ask him to see his doctor about depression. Suggest he look into part-time jobs or activities that will keep him more active during the day. But if he makes no effort to address this, the situation is not likely to improve. Dear Annie: I recently missed my 10-year high school reunion. I found out it was held in August, and I was never invited because I am not on Facebook. When did social media get so big that people can’t pick up a phone or write a letter? -- Curious Dear Curious: Social media sites began springing up as early as the mid-90s. Facebook was founded in 2004, and there are now more than a billion users. Like it or not, people are more apt to use such a site for mass invitations rather than pick up a phone and make dozens of individual calls. Our readers have let us know that when you haven’t heard about an upcoming reunion, you should contact others and find out whether you are out of the loop. Dear Annie: I’d like to respond to “Too Good of a Cook,” whose grown children often visited for the weekend but never offered to help cook or contribute to the growing grocery bills. My mother had many siblings who visited from out of state. Her rule was, “You are guests for one day. After that you are living here.” So everyone helped out with the dishes, cooking, cutting grass, doing wash and whatever. -- J.F.

Johnston, her sister Jean M. Murray, her loving daughters Julie M. Port (Dan), Joni R. SjĂśquist (Fred), her son Thomas A. Johnston (Gillian), her grandchildren Brian Port, Murray Gardener, Heather Gardener, Dannielle Port, Colin Port, Tyler and Megan Johnston, her great grandchildren Heidi Prentice, James and Sarah Port, Rebecca Port, Colin and Patrick Gardener, Mark, Stefan, Daniel and Abegael and her great great grandchild Brooklyn Andrew.

Springsteen ‘Born to Run’ manuscript SPCA removes more than 140 animals from sells for $197,000 at NYC auction ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — A handwritten, working lyric sheet for Bruce Springsteen’s 1975 hit “Born to Run’’ sold for $197,000 on Thursday at Sotheby’s. The document used to be in the collection of Springsteen’s former manager, Mike Appel, according to Sotheby’s. It did not reveal the identity of either the seller or the buyer, a person bidding by telephone. Most of the lines in this rough 1974 version, written in Long Branch, New Jersey, are apparently unpublished and unrecorded, but the manuscript does include “a nearly perfected chorus,’’ the auction house said. The title track of Springsteen’s 1975 album has revved up generations of fans — some of whom still refer to themselves as “Tramps,’’ like in the song. Springsteen is known to scrawl his songwriting stream-of-consciousness in notebooks. His thought process, written in blue ink on an 8 1/2-by-11 sheet of ruled notepaper, could trigger a spell-checker meltdown: “This town’ll rip the (out

AP/Sotheby’s, File

This file image released by Sotheby’s shows a page from a handwritten manuscript of Bruce Springsteen’s 1975 hit “Born to Run.” your) bones from yourback / it’s a suicide trap (rap) (it’s a trap to catchthe young) your dead unless / you get out (we gotto) while your young so (come on! / with) take myhand cause tramps / like us baby we were born to run.“ There are also some notes in the margins — “Wild’’ and “Angels’’ and a word that looks like “velocity,’’ with the letter “t’’ in Springsteen’s curlicue cursive. “Although Springsteen is known to have an intensive drafting process, few manuscripts of ‘Born to Run’ are

available, with the present example being one of only two identified that include the most famous lines in the song,’’ Sotheby’s said. Springsteen’s website describes the “Born to Run’’ album as “a sheer epic fueled by tangible energy, the idealized notion of escape and the romance of youth.’’ His “Darkness on the Edge of Town’’ album came out three years after “Born to Run.’’ For much of that interlude, Springsteen was prevented from releasing music due to a lawsuit involving Appel. Material from the “Darkness’’ ses-

sions may have been influenced by the acrimonious fallout from their business breakup. “Darkness’’ was “noticeably sparer than ‘Born to Run,’’’ according to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame website, which says Springsteen described the evolution as “a certain loss of innocence.’’ “If ‘Born to Run’ was epic cinema, ‘Darkness’ was brutal reality, its characters not dreaming of idealized escape as much as struggling against their circumstances,’’ notes Springsteen’s website. A lot of water has since ebbed and flowed under that bridge. In November 2009, Springsteen invited Appel and his son to fly with the E Street Band to their tour finale in Buffalo, New York, which featured “Greetings From Asbury Park, New Jersey,’’ an album Appel co-produced. At the show, Springsteen publicly acknowledged Appel’s contributions to his career. Springsteen told The Associated Press in 2010 that he and Appel were “very good friends.’’

New Brunswick home C ANADIAN PRESS

FREDERICTON — Charges are pending after the seizure of more than 140 animals from a home in Fredericton, N.B. on Tuesday. SPCA animal protection officer Olivia Justason says they included about 30 birds, some 58 cats, 21 dogs, six pot-belly pigs, chinchillas, gerbils and rabbits.

The SPCA say some animals are healthy, others required immediate medical care, none were put down and most have already been placed in foster homes. Hilary Howes of the New Brunswick SPCA says masks were needed to enter the house because of ammonia in the air from the animals’ urine.

Suitcase that fell onto highway miraculously returned to owner C ANADIAN PRESS

REGINA — A Regina woman who lost her suitcase on the highway is no longer singing the blues. Trina Owens says she reached out on social media and Kijiji after her suitcase fell off the back of the truck she

was in. The suitcase was full of Christmas presents she had just bought on a shopping trip to the U.S. Her online plea paid off — a woman contacted her and it was returned, battered but with all the presents inside and in good shape.
