Crystal meth, heroin seized during Cranbrook drug raid Drug dealers move among East Kootenay communities SALLY MACDONALD Townsman Staff

Cranbrook RCMP have seized several

hundred doses of crystal meth and heroin in a weekend raid in the city, saying that it shows drug dealers have no boundaries. A search warrant was executed by Cranbrook and Kimberley RCMP on a 9th Avenue property on Sunday, Dec. 15.

RCMP arrested a 33-year-old woman who had recently moved to Cranbrook from Kimberley. She faces charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking and was set to appear in court on Monday, Dec. 16. See DRUGS, page 3

Entrance road paving and track upgrade top list C AROLYN GR ANT

As many prepare lists for Santa at this time of year, Kimberley City Council is considering lists of requests for funding. Council is entering budget deliberations — always a difficult time in these days of ever tighter finances.

“ I want to know more about mutual funds.”

The Society’s biggest wish is to pave the entrance road to the downtown station, 90 per cent of which is on City land. The road receives a large amount of foot traffic during the railway’s operating season, explained Society president Mick Henningson in a letter to Council. He says the hope is that one day the road will be part of the Peak to Platzl Trail once a foot bridge is installed across Mark Creek near the station. The problem is the gravel road can have puddles and be gener-

ally mucky when it rains or dusty after a dry spell. Henningson suggests that it could be paved with recycled asphalt from City paving projects, in much the same way City Hall parking lot was done this year. The other big wish is for funds to upgrade the remaining one kilometer of rail from 65 pound rail to 85 pound rail. This particular stretch is getting wavy and an upgrade is required. Council made no decisions but referred the request to Operations, to join “a long list of projects”.

Local gov’ts support residents in Columbia River Treaty review Input to Libby dam operations; flood risk management part of recommendations SALLY MACDONALD Townsman Staff

Local governments have had their say on the future of the Columbia River Treaty. Last week, local governments in B.C.’s Columbia Basin for-

mally submitted recommendations for the treaty, which is up for renewal and termination in 2024. The Columbia River Treaty is a water management agreement between the United States and Canada signed in 1961 and ratified in 1964. The Treaty optimizes flood management and power generation, requiring coordinated operations of reservoirs and water flows for the Columbia River and Kootenay River on

both sides of the border. Both B.C. and the U.S are in the process of developing recommendations on the future of the Treaty because 2014 is the earliest opportunity that either country can give notice to terminate substantial portions of the Treaty, which would take effect in 10 years. Public hearings held jointly by local governments and the B.C. government in November brought

235 Basin residents, and another 100 provided input in writing on the future of the treaty. “Basin residents were clear about their issues and concerns related to the future of the Columbia River Treaty and we’ve worked together to find practical solutions that address a range of Treaty-related issues from salmon restoration, to increasing input from Basin residents in dam operations,” said Deb

Kozak, Chair of the Columbia River Treaty Local Governments’ Committee. “Our recommendations are with government now and we expect that they will be incorporated into any decisions about the future of the Treaty.” There were several key concerns that local government heard from the public, Kozak continued. “Residents want local government and First Nations’ input into any future discussions about the Treaty. And they want the Provincial Treaty Review Team to continue assessing alternative scenarios for Treaty dams and reservoirs that would improve ecosystem function and other values. Residents in BC especially want to understand what it would mean for this region if the Columbia River was managed to meet the U.S. request for increased Columbia River flows in spring

and summer.” The local government committee has put forward 12 recommendations directly related to the Treaty, and five recommendations to address domestic Treaty-related issues. The Committee’s recommendations address the following international Treaty issues: • local government status in international discussions; • continued engagement with Basin residents; • assessing benefits and impacts; • reducing negative impacts to the Basin; • equitable benefit-sharing; • expanding the focus of the Treaty to include ecosystems and other interests; • flood risk management; • Canadian input to Libby Dam operations; • power generation; • continuing Treaty rights to water use in BC;

• integrating climate change; and • pursuing salmon restoration. Recommendations regarding regional or so-called domestic issues address: • mitigation and/or compensation for negative impacts in the BC portion of the Basin; • community economic development; • meaningful ongoing engagement of Basin residents; • restoration and conservation of fish and wildlife in the East Kootenay-Koocanusa;

• a water management process for the Kootenay River; • full implementation of the Columbia River and Duncan Dam Water Use Plans; and • the Columbia Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program. The Committee’s recommendations are available at www.

Drugs seized in Cranbrook From Page 1 “Police have not seen a lot of these drugs in our area and are working hard to curtail it,” said Cpl. Chris Newel. “Meth is highly addictive and, in desperation to obtain these drugs, subjects go on to other crimes, primarily theft. In addition, meth is relatively cheap which results in purchases by younger persons with lesser or no incomes.” Meanwhile, local RCMP have been busy with other drugs-related

arrests in the past month. On Tuesday, Dec. 3, police caught a 50-yearold Marysville man delivering cocaine to a customer in Cranbrook. The man was found with two packages of cocaine, containing one gram each. He was charged with Trafficking in a Controlled Substance. He was released on conditions for a Dec. 16 court appearance. “Drug dealers will sell to whomever, wherever – they may reside in a certain community

but will travel to neighbouring areas in order to sell. In the two cases above there was a clear connection between Cranbrook and Kimberley,” said Cpl. Newel. Local police also assisted Columbia Valley and Fernie RCMP in cocaine arrests last month. “It’s important to realize that although an arrest is made in one area that subject likely has connections throughout the Kootenays and often into Alberta or the Okanagan,” said Cpl. Newel.

B.C. Minister visits Ktunaxa territory SALLY MACDONALD Townsman Staff

John Rustad, B.C.’s Minister of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation, was in Cranbrook Friday, Dec. 13 to meet with the Ktunaxa Nation. Last week, the Ktunaxa and the B.C. government renewed a Strategic Engagement Agreement (SEA) originally signed in 2010. “(The SEA) really helps us to strengthen our relationship between the province and the First Nation. It allows us to find effective ways to do engagement around things like land use issues and resource development, and in many ways it also helps us to be able to cooperate in decision making around things like stewardship and other development within the traditional territories,” Rustad said. Friday’s visit was Rustad’s first to Cranbrook since he was appointed to the ministry in June. “Since I’ve been appointed to this position, I try to get out and meet with as many of the First Nations as I can on their traditional territory,” said Rustad. He was set to meet with the Ktunaxa in Cranbrook, then travel to Grasmere to visit the Lower Kootenay Band, before travelling to Invermere to meet with the Shuswap Band. Rustad said that in the Ktunaxa traditional territory, significant impacts are mining and for-

In 2010, the B.C. govern-

ment approved a Master Development Agreement for the four-season resort west of Invermere. But the Ktunaxa have long opposed the development, saying that it would be built in sacred Ktunaxa territory, Qat’muk, home of the grizzly bear spirit. Rustad said that the SEA means the B.C. government and First Nation can disagree without affecting their relationship. “That’s one of the reasons why we do enter into these sorts of agreements,” said Rustad. “We

know that we are not always going to agree on everything. “Sometimes, if we don’t reach agreement, we are able to do that without damaging our ability to do other things together. That’s really what true partnership is all about: being able to sit down respectfully, understand one another’s concerns, and to be

able to work together where we can.” Rustad said the SEA will strengthen the two governments’ relationship. “The Ktunaxa are great people and we’ve got a strong relationship and I look forward to continuing and building on that relationship,” he said.

Traces of Valium were also in his system. So it was not just one bad choice that night, but a series of bad to worse choices. Choices which, to the casual observer, such as myself, seem to indicate a complete lack of concern for others. A psychologist hired by the defense — which I’m sure was not legal aid — told the court that Couch suffered from affluenza and was unable to link his bad behaviour with consequences due to his parents teaching him that wealth buys privilege. He needed rehab, his lawyer argued, not prison. Incidently, his rehab facility in California will cost $450,000 a year. His parents have agreed to pay for it, so.... yay, parents! I guess. Your kid dodged a big one. You might want to consider funding some psychological studies on affluenza so you have more ammunition for his next trial. Because I think we can probably be safe in assuming there will be one. Seriously. Affluenza. Now I’ve heard everything. Carolyn Grant is the Editor of the Kimberley Daily Bulletin

Rookies adjust to life on the road Kootenay prepares for final game before Christmas break against the Lethbridge Hurricanes TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Jordan Steenbergen knows what he needs to bring after his first major WHL road trip. “Definitely more snacks,” said the Ice rookie defenceman. “Didn’t bring enough snacks and probably some more of everything, like clothes. “… As the rookie, I guess I didn’t pack well enough, but other than that, it was fun.” It was the longest excursion from Cranbrook of the season for the Ice, which lasted 10 days, starting in Victoria and ending in Prince George. “It was different being on the road for that amount of time, lots of time to sleep and rest, but also lots of time to get to know everyone better and bond as a team more,” said Steenbergen. “It was different, being around the guys the whole time—since I don’t live with some of the guys—being in the hotel rooms and creating relationships,”

added fellow rookie Matt Alfaro. The results weren’t as good as the team were hoping for, with two wins and three losses during the swing through the B.C. Division. Aside from a dismal 3-0 shutout in Victoria, Kootenay lost one-goal games against Vancouver and Kelowna, and picked up two wins against Kamloops and Prince George. Kootenay Ice head coach Ryan McGill summed up the performance last week before leaving for Team Canada and the World Junior Championships. “Inconsistent,” said McGill. “We played very well in Kelowna, we should’ve won the game because we could’ve buried opportunities in the first period. There’s an opportunity there to win the game because of how we created offence. “Same thing in Vancouver. We shouldn’t be two-and-three on this trip, we should be probably four-and-one and

it’s a direct result of inconsistent play from our best players.” Alfaro and Zborosky both collected three points over the trip, each potting a goal and two assists. “It’s good. I’m getting more of an opportunity with the injuries and lots more ice time,” said Alfaro. “Just doing the best I can, trying to put some points on the board and just be a plus-player.”

Zborosky is the highest scoring rookie for the Ice this year, with five goals and eight assists in 32 games. “I never expected it to be like this, but it’s been a really good thing for me, it’s helped me not only in hockey, but off the ice, I’ve become

more mature and I’ve also improved a lot in hockey,” he said. “I think what I want to work on is being more consistent each game, but I’ve also gotten used to the speed of the game.” Kootenay struggles continued in their first game back on home ice against the Red Deer Rebels, suffering a 4-0 shutout on Teddy Bear Toss night on Friday, however, a huge performance from goaltender Mackenzie Skapski led to a 3-2 shootout win over the Broncos on Saturday. The Ice now close out the first half of the WHL schedule with their final game before the Christmas break against the visiting Lethbridge Hurricanes on Tuesday. Currently the Ice are missing the services of Ryan Chynoweth, Tanner Faith, Jagger Dirk, Rinat Valiev—all injured—while captain Sam Reinhart is busy with the World Juniors. However, the Hurricanes will be the final

hurdle before a nineday break where the players will get to head home and put hockey on the back burner. The Hurricanes have had a tough year and hold the worst record in the CHL, however, it’s a new-look team since the Ice faced them last. St. Louis Blues prospect Nick Walters joined the team in a deal that sent highly touted NHL prospect Ryan Pilon to Brandon. Lethbridge also added Teagan Sacher, a goaltender previously from Regina, as well as Carter Folk and Riley Sheen in October. Despite the record, the ‘Canes blew out the Rebels 6-0 a week ago on home ice. “We got to approach them like we approach Kelowna,” said Steenbergen. “You see them last week, they beat Red Deer 6-0 so any team can beat any team in this league on any given day and we can’t come in with our heads held too high. “We gotta maintain consistency and come in like any other team.”

Ottawa Redblacks select Glenn, DeMarco in CFL expansion draft

TORONTO, Ontario - The Ottawa Redblacks selected quarterbacks Kevin Glenn and Thomas DeMarco in the first round of the CFL expansion draft Monday. Glenn, 34, spent the last two seasons with Calgary but was left unprotected for the draft by the Stampeders. The 12-year CFL veteran appeared in 15 games last year, leading Calgary (14-4) to a league-best record. Glenn will be reunited with Redblacks head coach Rick Campbell, who served as Calgary’s defensive co-ordinator last season. Glenn, a Detroit native, completed 223-of-335 passes (66.6 per cent) for 2,710 yards and 18 touchdowns with seven interceptions. DeMarco, 24, spent the last two seasons with the B.C. Lions, completing 103-of-191 passes for 1,325 yards with 10 touchdowns and eight interceptions while replacing the injured Travis Lulay. The two were among eight players selected in the opening round by the Redblacks, who will begin play in 2014. Ottawa’s other first-round selections include running back Chevon Walker (Hamilton), defensive linemen Jonathan Williams (Toronto) and Moton Hopkins (Montreal), receivers Wallace Miles (Winnipeg) and Carleton Mitchell (Edmonton) and offensive lineman James Lee (Saskatchewan).

You will feel confident that you can handle that problem, and you’ll be right! Tonight: Do what you want. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Pivotal meetings in the morning will force you to take stock of your life. By the afternoon, a quieter, more sensitive mood weaves through your day.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Pace yourself; you have a lot to accomplish. An unexpected matter needs resolution. First you need to detach in order to find the right answer.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

ANNIE’S MAILBOX by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: My husband likes to watch porn. I don’t care to watch it myself, but if my husband asks me to join him in his viewing, I will. Recently, I found out that my husband was watching porn on his phone at work. When I confronted him, he claimed it was just an advertising pop-up. But I knew he was not being truthful. I checked his phone and found that these were actual websites that you have to log on to in order to view the contents. I don’t like him to watch porn at all, but I’d rather we watch together than know he’s accessing live webcam shows and chat rooms. I consider this to be cheating. I have told him how it makes me feel and have asked him to stop. But he says he’s going to continue because he enjoys it and sees nothing wrong with it. Now he erases the data from his phone so I won’t see it. After 28 years together, he is now deceiving me, and I am terribly hurt. He doesn’t seem to care how I feel or that he is damaging the trust between us. What did I do wrong for him to treat me this way? I have asked him to see a marriage counselor or a sex therapist with me, but he’s not interested. I love him, but I don’t think I can live with this kind of life. Do you think watching and chatting with a real naked woman online is cheating? What about watching porn behind your wife’s back? Is this normal behavior in a marriage? -- Angel in Anaheim Dear Angel: A marriage is not healthy when one partner doesn’t care about the feelings of the other. Unlike old-fashioned pornography, the Internet provides real women, in real time, performing virtual sex acts. This not only creates unrealistic expectations of one’s actual partner, but it can become addictive. Your husband may not be having an affair, but he is both sexually and emotionally connected to other women, which could be considered cheating. Since your husband refuses to go for counseling, please go on your own and sort it out. Dear Annie: My husband, “Tom,” passed away nearly three years ago. He had a lot of friends, most of whom I haven’t seen since Tom’s funeral. Our daughter has since gotten engaged, and we are now in the process of creating the guest list. Are we obligated to invite Tom’s closest friends even though they have made no effort to stay in touch with our family? -Bitter in Vermont Dear Bitter: Unless your daughter would like these people to be invited, you are not obligated to include those “friends” who have made no effort to stay in your life (or hers) for the past three years. Our condolences. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “No Early Bird in California” about DPSD, a circadian rhythm disorder that prevents people from having a regular sleep schedule. It has a name! Thank heavens! No one can understand the frustration and struggle I have had with this all of my life. I have tried so hard to go to sleep at a normal hour and wake up early, but cannot. I miss out on a lot, but I can’t help it. I feel fine when I am able to live according to my natural schedule, working night jobs and hanging out with other night people. -- Night Owl Dear Night Owl: Many readers were surprised and delighted to discover that their late-night sleep schedule could be identified. Here’s another viewpoint: Dear Annie: I am typically up until 2 a.m. and sleep until 10. I get my eight hours each night. I do whatever my day calls for during my waking hours with no problem. Why should this be called a disorder? My order is fine. Who determines what is “normal”? Different is not synonymous with abnormal. -- Massachusetts Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

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

With so many advertising mediums dividing the attention of potential customers, newspapers remain the most effective source for reaching consumers. Why? Simply put, newspapers reach more people, more often. Highly portable and highly visible, newspaper ads go with people and stay with them. That means your business is more likely to be on their minds when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the market for related products or services. When it comes to spending your advertising dollars, make the choice thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tried and true: newspaper advertising works harder for you.
