Kimberley votes for cull C A R O LY N G R A N T Daily Bulletin

In front of a group of silent protesters from the BC Deer Protection Society, Kimberley City Council approved three recommendations from the city’s Urban Deer Committee on Monday evening. The first recommendation was that Kimberley undertake a limited cull of up to 15 deer in Marysville and up to 15 in the Blarchmont, Chapman Camp area. Council voted unanimously to go ahead with the cull with Councillors Albert Ho-

glund and Don McCormick absent. Committee Chair Gary Glinz said that the committee arrived at the recommendation after this year’s population counts were conducted a few weeks ago. He said when they looked at counts and complaints in the Blarchmont, Chapman Camp area, they grouped together, whereas in Marysville there weren’t as many complaints but more deer were counted. Secondly, Council voted to provide $2,000 to start up an education program in local

schools. Glinz said that the need for this arose because of some children being afraid of deer after close encounters. “It indicates a missing piece,” Glinz said. “To do it right we need someone who knows what they are doing. We want kids not afraid, but aware.” Glinz said a professional would be needed to deliver the program because the school board is careful about who they allow to speak to students.

Cranbrook Council supports 911 levy ARNE PE TRYSHEN Townsman Staff

The province and the Union of B.C. Municipalities is working to find a funding solution to the provincial 911 service. They have been looking for ways to pay for the booming operating costs as the population switches over to mobile phones. At the moment the service is paid through taxes, but that leaves cell coverage lacking. There is a national 911 fee that cell service providers charge So the province and UBCM wanted feedback on the proposal and sent out

a report. Council asked administration to give a more in-depth review of the literature provided on the proposed Provincial 911 Call Answering Levy (CAL). During Monday’s meeting, Fire Chief Wayne Price, from Cranbrook Fire and Emergency Services, explained that the first step in the process is the Public Safety Answering Point. There are 13 in the province and the area’s PSAP is administered by the RCMP in Kelowna.

Local birders set for 114th Christmas Bird Count Da rryl C al der

The annual Christmas Bird Count (CBC) — the longest-running citizen science survey in the world — will take place from December 14, 2013 to January 5, 2014. Cranbrook, Kimberley, Elkford and Fernie naturalists will join tens of thousands of volunteers throughout North America braving winter weather to add a new layer to over a century of data. For many years, the Christmas Bird Count was organized at the continental scale by the National Audubon Society. Since 2000, Bird Studies Canada has partnered with Audubon to coordinate counts in Canada. Scientists rely on the trend data of the CBC to better understand how birds and

the environment are faring throughout North America — and what needs to be done to protect them. CBC results are at the heart of numerous peer-reviewed scientific studies. “Each CBC volunteer observer is an important contributor, helping to shape the overall direction of bird conservation,” said Dick Cannings, Bird Studies Canada’s Christmas Bird Count Coordinator. “Bird Studies Canada and our U.S. partners at Audubon rely on data from the CBC database to monitor bird populations across North America.” The Christmas Bird Count began over a century ago when 27 conservationists in 25 localities, led by scientist and writer Frank Chapman, changed the

Keep your eyes peeled for the pine grosbeak and others of our fine-feathered friends, this December and January for the annual Christmas Bird Count. course of ornithological history. On Christmas Day in 1900, the small group suggested an alternative to the “side hunt,” in which teams

competed to see who could shoot the most game, including birds. Instead, Chapman proposed that they identify, count, and re-

cord all the birds they saw. Now binocular brigades often brave winter’s chill, ice, and snow to record changes in resident populations before spring migrants return. Counts are often family or community traditions that make for fascinating stories. Accuracy is assured by having new participants join an established group that includes at least one experienced birdwatcher. Count volunteers follow specified routes through a designated 24-kilometre diameter circle, or can arrange in advance to count the birds at home feeders inside the circle and submit the results to a designated compiler. From feeder-watchers and field observers to count compilers and regional editors, everyone who takes

part in the Christmas Bird Count does it for the love of birds and the excitement of friendly competition — and with the knowledge that their efforts are making a difference for science and bird conservation.

Save On & Overwaitea’s ‘Help Light a Star’ extended to New Year Donna Grainger

On Nov. 21 Save On Foods in Cranbrook and Overwaitea Foods in Kimberley and Fernie launched their own special fundraiser to Help Light a Star for EKFH’s Starlite Campaign. Since the launch, customers have being generous by donating their More Rewards points with Save On and Overwaitea outlets matching 1,000 points for every 1,000 points donated,

equalling a $2 donation from the Overwaitea Food Group. Although the program was to end December 3, store managers from the three outlets are extending its support to January, 2014.  “We are more than halfway to the goal of raising $5,000 and lighting a star, so unanimously  our stores in Fernie, Kimberley and Cranbrook agreed to extend the campaign,” said Len Steen-

son, branch manager in Cranbrook.  To participate in Help Light a Star, a customer simply has to redeem their More Rewards points at the customer service counter or directly through the till. Not enough points? No problem — donations are also accepted in-store with all donations being directed to the More Rewards points event.

911 call levy Continued from page 1

When you dial 911 in this area the call goes to Kelowna, where they ask if it’s police, ambulance or fire. That then goes to a more specific dispatch. For an ambulance call in Cranbrook, it would be passed from Kelowna PSAP to Kamloops. Fire goes directly to dispatch here. “Costs have been going up,” he said. “Cranbrook’s share in 2006 was $22,000. Last year it was $42,000. “Right now we tax our residents for their share of the 911 system. As you can see it’s gone up almost 100 per cent in six years.” Price said that part of the reason for the rising costs is the exponential rise of technology, and costs could rise another 10 per cent in the next year or two. “If you look at technologies, they are changing every month and I think they just can’t keep up to provide an efficient service,” he said. “They can’t keep up with the current devices.” Even the errant pock-

et dials are putting a lot of stress on the system. One of the solutions taken from other similar services in North America is the call levy fee on every phone, not just landlines. Price said they would probably also add a caveat about future devices being included as well if capable of making 911 calls. Price is wary of a tax solution, since it would likely keep rising up every couple of years that it is presented. He said the levy allows the user to pay for the services that they are using. “I think it’s a wise idea, especially as so many are forgoing their landlines now and only have a cellphone,” said Coun. Sharon Cross, adding that both mobile and landline phone users pay their fair share for the service. Price said they are also hoping to get some grants that take into consideration the extra stress to the emergency system that comes in the summer months as vacationers come to the area.

Councillor calls for ice announcements Arne Petryshen

Coun. Gerry Warner was hoping the city might be able to post updates on ice conditions of the various skating areas in Cranbrook. Warner said two Sundays ago, he and three friends noticed that Elizabeth Lake was frozen solid with glass-like ice. “It was just one of those splendid Canadian winter days,” he said. That day the four of them were the only ones out there. By Wednesday there were dozens of people on the ice, he said. But Warner then saw an ad in the paper warning about thin ice. “I think you could probably drive a semi truck on Elizabeth Lake after this weather,” he said. “I’m just wondering if the city would make announcements.” Warner wondered if the city has a scale for how many centimetres

of ice would be considered safe. “I’ve always thought four inches,” he said. “I think when we first went on Elizabeth Lake it was three inches and it was fine. Then when it’s declared safe, can the city let the public know that this form of recreation is available?” Warner said he didn’t see anyone at Baker Park when he walked by before the meeting, but said it is flooded and in great shape. He hoped that notifications were something that the city could do for people as it “makes the winters more bearable.” CAO Wayne Staudt said the city does put warnings out when there are areas of thin ice on Idlewild Lake. “But I’m not sure if we follow up and say when it is safe, so we can work on some of those public announcements that’s for sure,” Staudt said.

As Council passed each recommendation from the Urban Deer Committee on Monday evening, they faced a silent protest from the BC Deer Protection Society.

Group protests new cull vote C arolyn Grant

Members of the BC Deer Protection Society, which was formed in Invermere and involved in a lawsuit against the District of Invermere against its deer cull, attended Kimberley City Council on Monday evening to protest as Council voted for a cull of a total of 30 deer. They sat silently, holding signs, as Council approved the cull, and left quietly after the vote. They left behind a letter, signed by society director Devin Kazakoff, in opposition to the decision. After the meeting, Sherry Shrieves, who sits on the deer committee, told Council she was disappointed that they didn’t ask more questions before they voted for the cull. “One question is, has the deer committee consulted an ungulate biologist?” Shrieves says there have been wildlife biologists involved but not one specifically specializing in ungulates. The Society letter quotes a biologist, Dr.

Rick Page, who said that culling simply creates room for more deer from the larger population outside of town to move in. She also pointed out that the SPCA has never said culling was humane, only that it was done in a professional manner. Coun. Darryl Oakley said that an SPCA constable was allowed to observe the first cull. “I pushed hard for that,” Oakley said. “This is killing animals; it is heartbreaking. His job was to see if there was suffering.” Coun. Bev Middlebrook asked what exact-

ly the answer was if culling was unacceptable. “If you don’t cull and hazing is not allowed, what do we do? I am a total animal lover but it is also my responsibility as a councillor to see people safe.” “But will the cull really make it any safer?” Shrieves asked. “Can you guarantee safety once you cull?” “No, you can’t guarantee but you can’t sit back and let the deer have run of the community either,” Middlebrook responded. “You need to remove food sources,” Shrieves said. “The cull won’t work without that. You

take animals out, more come in. “Look at Helena, Montana. They have been culling for years. Now they are facing a lawsuit.” Shrieves said that she was a member of the Urban Deer Committee but her perspective was not heard. “This is an ethical issue. It’s not a referendum on how much money you spend to fix the arena. You don’t hear my opinion — just the committee recommendations.” The letter to council also said the following: “The City of Kimberley has no obligation,

legal or ethical, to interfere with the wildlife living in and around the city boundaries. Human/wildlife conflict and management is within the jurisdiction of the provincial government. The behaviour of wildlife, within or outside municipal boundaries, is not your responsibility and risk management is not required. In fact, it is possible that by assuming responsibility, council is exposing Kimberley to liability.” The letter also referred to Kimberley as having gained “notorious status as the town that has killed the most deer in B.C to date”.

Kimberley votes for new cull Continued from page 1 “It has to be non-political, non-partisan and age appropriate,” he said. “It’s worth approaching a professional to put the curriculum together.” Thirdly, council voted to continue to lobby hard for aversive conditioning — both through MLA Norm Macdonald and any other opportunity to speak to the government. Aversive conditioning, or hazing, has been tried in Kimberley

under a special permit but continues to be illegal under the BC Wildlife Act. Council is concerned that it has been quite some time since the trial (last May) with no movement on amending the Act. “I have to express my disappointment with the B.C. government,” said Coun. Darryl Oakley, who sits as council rep on the deer committee. “It’s just been so slow. I really feel strongly Kim-

berley could utilize this tool. This is an option that has some viability. I hope Norm Macdonald can push it along.” Coun. Kent Goodwin said he was a little concerned about sending a mixed message to the government. “We are saying the deer are not our problem, but on the other hand we are saying give us more tools to deal with them. Maybe the province should be doing the hazing,” Goodwin said.

the board decided not to proceed with any changes to the regulation of home based businesses in Electoral Area A.

RCMP requested to increase police presence The RCMP will be requested to increase the police presence on highways in the East Kootenay to help encourage appropriate winter driving habits.

Overview level hazard assessments received Following the flooding this summer, the RDEK received funding from Emergency Management BC for an aerial assessment of both Cold Spring Creek and Fairmont Creek. The Overview Level Hazard Assessments have been received. A detailed assessment on Cold Spring Creek will be considered if future funding opportunities become available. The Fairmont Creek assessment was included as supporting documentation in the RDEK’s application for Phase 2 flood mitigation work through the Building Canada Flood Protec-

tion Program.

Jimsmith Lake development approved The board of directors has given final approval to an 11lot subdivision at Jimsmith Lake. The Daprocida development will create two hectare (five acre) parcels at the southern end of the lake. The controversial development was revised to include larger parcels after opposition from the Jimsmith community. The adoption of the bylaw amendment that will allow the development was opposed by Cranbrook directors Wayne Stetski and Bob Whetham.

Ho ho ho and a bottle of rum I ’ve finally done it. For the first time in my entire life I am ready for Christmas two weeks in advance. Please humour me for a moment while I smugly gloat in your face ... Okay, enough of that, before somebody slaps me. I know that’s what many of you are feeling because I myself have been through the very same range of emotions, many, many, many times. I always start out with good intentions. First, I make a list of gifts I would like to receive and send it out to my family. Being Australian, these days I split the list into gifts that can be mail-ordered online for my Australian family, and gifts that need to be bought in person for my husband’s family in Canada. That is always the first thing I do because I am a selfish youngest child and I never truly evolved into the kind of gracious adult who feels Christmas is more about giving than receiving. It’s easy to say that until there’s a pile of presents under the tree and less than half have your name on them. This year, my family asked for my wish list back in September. It was frighteningly early to be thinking about Christmas — the leaves had not yet fallen, let alone the snow. But it did start me on my Christmas

process, and for that I will be eternally grateful. By eternally, I mean until next December. After creating my wish list, I got to work on the other list: who to buy for and ideas of what to buy. In October, my husband and I made a trip to Kalispell to start buying. I feel a little ashamed to admit I was not shopping locally, but in my defense, I bought Sally more items later in CranMacDonald brook than I did in Montana. Plus, while in Kalispell, we saw a neighbour, a former mayor of Cranbrook, someone I work with, and someone my husband works with. Next, I ceaselessly hounded my family in Australia for their wish lists. It is easy to irritate someone into compliance when you can phone them at three o’clock in the morning without having to actually wake up at three o’clock in the morning yourself. Because of the time difference, if I phoned at 9 a.m., it was 3 a.m. there. Very civilized. (I joke: I didn’t actually do that. I phoned at 10 a.m. when it was 4 a.m. No, no, I didn’t really do that either.) After ordering online all my gifts for Australia, there was only one hiccup. The Australian department store I ordered four gift cards from made a mistake in preparing them. They emailed to ‘fess up and correct the mistake, but made a mis-

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

take in that email. Then when the gift cards arrived, they had made another mistake in what they sent. So to summarize: they made a mistake, then they made a mistake correcting their mistake, then they made a mistake correcting a mistake that was correcting a mistake. Excellent job! With that problem ironed out, I had only to finish my Canadian shopping (tick: Black Friday and the Winter Farmers’ Market in Cranbrook), decorate the most stunningly laden tree you have ever beholden (tick: November 30), wrap all the gifts (tick: December 1) and do my Christmas baking (tick: last weekend). This makes me the Christmas ninja. I hope you realize that. I came up behind Christmas when it was least expecting it (that is: in September) and had it all tied up in wrapping paper and bows before it knew what was happening. I am going to revel in this glory right now because there is no doubt in my mind that, come December 23, 2014, I will be forking out hundreds of dollars for nextday delivery and rueing the day I ever bragged about my holiday efficiency. I almost expect to go home this evening to find the dog has knocked over the tree, torn open the gifts, and is in a chocolate coma from consuming the holiday baking. It could totally happen.

ROAD TO THE BRIER:The Buchy rink, comprised of Skip Tom Buchy, Third Fred Thomson, Second Dave Toffolo and Lead Darren Will, earned a qualifying spot at the provincial playdowns this past weekend during zone playoffs in Sparwood. The team would like to thank the following sponsors for their support: Stephen Rota Management Inc., Coal Valley Motor Products, Assante Wealth Management, Avenue, B & B glass, ABC Country Restaurant, Coors Light, Marysville Petrocan, Kootenay Insurance Services Ltd., Sun Life Financial – Frank Vanden Broek, Prestige Hotels and Resorts, Kimberley Curling Club.

Buchy rink punches ticket to provincials TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

A Kimberley curling team has taken the first step to competing on the national stage this season. Tom Buchy and his fellow curlers competed in the Kootenay zone playdowns in Sparwood this weekend, going undefeated to capture one of two qualifying spots for provincial playdowns in Vancouver next February. The winner of the provincial championships represents B.C. at the Tim Hortons Brier—the national men’s curling championship. Buchy is joined by teammates Dave Toffolo and Darren Will, second and lead respectively, along with newcomer Fred Thomson, who is third. Skip Trevor Perepolkin and his rink out of the Castlegar Curling Club won the sec-

ond qualifier, in a field that included seven teams from the East and West Kootenay. The Buchy rink faced Chris Ducharme out of the Creston Curling Club and scored a triple in the ninth end to secure a 9-5 victory in the opening draw on Friday. Later in the afternoon, the Kimberley foursome went up against Rob Ferguson representing the Trail Curling Club, and won 6-3. Heading into the final end, the Buchy rink had a tenuous 4-3 lead, but scored a deuce to close out the victory. Still undefeated in the ‘A’ bracket, Team Buchy and Team McHargue battled for the first provincial qualifying spot. McHargue, representing the Elkford Curling Club, featured Cranbrook resident Gerry Kent on his team. After five ends, Buchy led 4-0 before McHargue tallied a pair of points over two ends. But the Buchy rink scored a deuce in

the eighth end to finish off the game and win 7-2. “We had a really solid weekend,” said Buchy. “We won three games and now advance to Vancouver starting February 5th. “…The guys played well and we managed to get it done.” Thomson is a new addition this year after Kelowna’s Dave Stephenson was unable to sign on for another year due to work and family commitments, according to Buchy. However, it’s a small and close-knit curling community in the region, and Buchy invited Thomson to join the crew. “He’s been to the Brier once, been to the Canadian Mixed twice, so he’s a good fit,” Buchy said. “…We all know Fred really well and thought he’d make a good fit, just by knowing him.”

Scott Niedermayer is being included in the 2014 class of inductees for the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame, which was unveiled on Tuesday in Vancouver. Niedermayer, a Cranbrook product, is a retired NHLer who is considered one of the greatest defencemen to ever play the game. He joins nine other individuals and one team as part of the class. Niedermayer has won every major North American and international championship during his professional career, including titles such as: Memorial Cup, world junior championship, Stanley Cup (four times) World Cup of Hockey, IIHF world championship, and Olympic gold. He was also recently inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame, after getting voted in on his first ballot. Joining Niedermayer in the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame next year freestyle skiers Greg Athans and Sarah Burke along with basketball players Lars Hansen and Joanne Sargent. Other names included Hockey Canada president Bob Nicholson, Dr. Jack Taunton (Sports Medicine), Robert Powell, a former Olympian and tennis player. Paul Carson was included in the media category, while former sports journalist Erwin Swangard was honoured with the WAC Bennett category. The 1978 Doc’s Blues Women’s Softball team was inducted in the team category, which captured a silver medal in the world softball championships of the same year. Trevor Crawley

A’s trade Brett Anderson to Rockies for Pomeranz, Jensen OAKLAND, Calif. - The Oakland Athletics found a trade partner for pitcher Brett Anderson and his big salary. The A’s dealt the left-hander and cash to the Colorado Rockies for lefty Drew Pomeranz and minor league right-hander Chris Jensen on Tuesday. Two-time AL West champion Oakland had been looking to move Anderson, who is due to make $8 million this season and has a $12 million contract option for the 2015 season. That includes a $1.5 million buyout. The 25-year-old Anderson was the Athletics’ starter on opening day this year. He went 1-4 with a 6.04 in five starts and 16 appearances, finishing up as a reliever in an injury-interrupted season. “Thanks to the A’s Organization and Fans for everything,” Anderson posted on Twitter. “I’ll nothing but fond memories of my time there.” Of his move to Denver, he added: “Peyton Manning and I are going to become best friends...fact.” This marked A’s general manager Billy Beane’s fourth trade in just over a week. Anderson, a second-round draft pick by Arizona in 2006, has been plagued by injuries in recent years. Associated Press

Ice beat Cougars 3-1 to close out B.C. division road trip TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Mackenzie Skapski played the role of Ebenezer Scrooge against the Prince George Cougars, making 51 saves to lead the Kootenay Ice to a 3-1 win on Tuesday night. The Cougars outshot the Ice in all three period and took the initial lead, however, Skapski’s work in between the pipes and offence from Jaedon

Descheneau, Tim Bozon and Jagger Dirk, was enough to lift Kootenay to victory. Though Kootenay picked up the win, head coach Ryan McGill wasn’t too impressed with the lack of effort throughout his bench, noting that the team only won because of Skapski. “We had a team of veterans and leaders that didn’t show up, be-

sides him,” McGill said. “Obviously we needed him and I guess I’ll put Tim Bozon in that category—he played pretty well—but after that, or before that, we had nobody show up.” In front of a crowd of only 1,410 at the CN Centre in Prince George, the two teams held each other scoreless after the opening period, before trading goals in the middle frame.

Jordan Tkatch trailed the play on a Cougars odd-man rush, and picked up a juicy re-

bound to put Prince George in the lead in the first half of the period. Descheneau combined with Matt Alfaro to knot the game back up 10 minutes later on a play that went to video review after the puck appeared to go in off his skate. However, the goal stood, which had both teams tied at 1-1 going into the final period. Dirk broke the dead-

lock four minutes in on a screened shot, and Bozon notched some insurance, walking through a crowd to sneak a backhander into the net. While Skapski got a workout in the crease, Ty Edmonds made 29 saves on the other end of the rink for the Cougars. Kootenay was denied on all three powerplay opportunities, while shutting out Prince

George in two of their chances with the man-advantage. The Ice did it without the help of captain Sam Reinhart, who has already taken off to Etobicoke for the upcoming Team Canada selection camp. Ice head coach Ryan McGill will leave on Wednesday to join up with Brent Sutter and Benoit Groulx as part of the national squad’s coaching staff.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) When given some perspective, you might think someone’s idea is hogwash. You can be sure that, regardless of whether you say anything, the other party can see your facial expressions and/ or hear the tone in your voice. Be diplomatic. Tonight: Get some extra R and R. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You work well with people in general. You’ll find out how caring certain associates can be. Thanking someone for his or her support will mean more than you realize. Express yourself in a way that others will identify with you. Do not act like a boss.

Opportunities pop up out of the blue that encourage this talk. Remain optimistic. Tonight: Be a duo. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Tundra

Others will be challenging. You could have a strong initial reaction, but that will pass. You might be too concerned about a personal matter. For the time being, remain on topic and trust that the right time will come to work through this issue. Tonight: Return calls and emails. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Emphasize cooperation rather than willfulness. You often get caught up in wanting things to go a certain way. You could hear news that initially might not make you happy.

involving a personal matter. Trying to force what you want will not work. Allow someone some time to understand where you are coming from. At that point, this person will be more receptive to you. Tonight: At home. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Communication excels and allows greater give-and-take. At the same time, an opinion of yours is transforming. You could be surprised at how off a snap judgment might be. Use your high energy to get some holiday shopping done. Tonight: Get together with a friend. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Take time to go over your holiday gift list. You will be much happier if you honor the amount you can spend on each item. You also could come up with a creative idea that might be more fun than a present would be. Follow your imagination. Tonight: Shop, then join a friend.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

ANNIE’S MAILBOX by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I was married to a verbally abusive narcissist for 10 years. Two separations and three counselors later, I decided to leave him. That was in June. I recently met someone who makes me believe there are good people out there. But my soon-to-be ex and my brother have been screaming from the rooftops that I am a cheater, and that my husband’s behavior was perfect. This hurts me so deeply I cannot describe the pain. I bent over backward for this man for years, but he always has to “win.” Due to my brother’s badmouthing me and my unwillingness to fight, my parents barely speak to me. My ex is irresponsible about money, so I paid off his truck and am making half of his house payment so my kids have a place to stay when they see him. I have 10 pages of documentation from all the horribleness I have lived through. I hope my parents someday will warm up to the new man who treats me so well. I have given up on my brother. Meanwhile, my ex keeps telling me how he is doing “the right thing” by letting my children see me, because all of his friends tell him not to. Of course, he never was involved with the kids. He’s using them for leverage. I pay for all of the children’s expenses and their health insurance, and I see a counselor regularly. But every week, my ex or my brother contacts me and tries to make me feel like a terrible person for leaving. Will it ever stop? -- Exhausted in Wisconsin Dear Wisconsin: We hope so, but you have to be strong. Until the divorce is final, your husband (and brother) will try to wear you down so you will return. As long as the children can be used to pressure you, your ex will do so. We know you are tired, but you need to fight back a little harder. Let your parents know exactly what is going on, and let them see the documentation. Make sure you have a good attorney who will see that the kids are protected and have access to both of their parents. Don’t push your new relationship. It’s too soon for your parents to accept. And keep seeing your counselor. It will help. Dear Annie: I have battled cancer since 1995. I will be on chemotherapy or some drug until I wish no further medical intervention. I am always bald, so I wear a beautiful assortment of headscarves. This usually elicits a caring smile, the start of a conversation or a comment meant to give hope. And while I am grateful for the smiles and caring statements, there is one comment I would like to eliminate. A number of people say, “Well, we’re all dying.” I understand these folks mean well, but it is a condescending and insensitive thing to say. Instead of giving hope or comfort, it says that my terminal diagnosis isn’t that big of a deal and I should just get over it. Please tell people to think carefully before making such a comment to one who is terminally ill. -- Counting My Blessings in Jacksonville, Fla. Dear Counting: We could write a book about all of the inappropriate comments that people make when confronted with awkward or difficult situations. Thanks for alerting them to put this particular phrase in a locked drawer and throw away the key. Dear Annie: “Not Lonely in Virginia” said she has trouble making friends. When she added, “I suspect it may have to do with reading body language. I can’t interpret the signals,” it sounded like Asperger’s. I was in a relationship with a man with Asperger’s, and I didn’t have a clue about this syndrome. It was devastating. I read everything I could and now understand it. Please direct her to www.aspergers.com, where she will be welcomed and understood. -- Sioux Falls Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
