Locals search for missing Canadian down under Five East Kootenay search and rescue experts have returned after a search in Australia for a missing Ontario man


After several weeks searching the Australian alpine, five searchers from the East Kootenay are back home, having found no sign of Prabhdeep Srawn. From Kimberley Search and Rescue, Scott MacLeod and Seb Martinez; from Fernie Search and Rescue, Bernie Palmer and Tom Hopkins; and from Sparwood Search and Rescue, Charmaine Lingard all volunteered their time to help Srawn’s family find out what happened to the young man. In May, Srawn went alone on a hiking trip to Australia’s highest mountain, Mount Kosciuzsko, at 2,228 metres in elevation. Srawn, a 25-year-old military reservist, had been studying in Australia. But soon after he set out on the hiking expe-

dition, a snowstorm set in, dumping up to 30 centimetres of snow. Srawn has not been seen or heard from since. After searches in Australia found no trace of Srawn, his family asked B.C. Search and Rescue members if they could participate in an independent search. Five East Kootenay Search and Rescue members put up their hands to join the team of 18 volunteers. The Srawn family paid for their travel expenses. Led by Vancouver’s Martin Colwell of SAR Technology, the group left at the end of November. After flying into Sydney, the group piled into a van donated by a local member of the Sikh community and drove to Jindabyne, the town closest to Australia’s high alpine.

Fundraiser derby back for another year ARNE PETRYSHEN Townsman Staff

The fifth annual Family Fishing Derby is just over a month away and organizers are already getting ready for the event. Last year the event had to be cancelled because of unseasonably warm weather. The derby takes place on Horseshoe Lake — last year the ice was too thin to safely hold the event. This year however, Shane Westle, founder and event co-ordinator, said the ice is looking

good this year. “There’s already 12 inches of ice on the lake right now,” he said, so it is looking good for this year. “There’s way more ice than we had last year and a little over a month to go.” The derby is on Feb. 10, which is also Family Day in B.C. Westle started the derby in honour of a friend who passed away from cancer. “It was about six years ago when Mira Morrison passed away,” Westle said. Her hus-

band, also a close friend of Westle also recently passed away. This year there is a new event in their honour: the Morrison shooting gallery. The derby brings in people of all ages and Westle said they expect 1,500 people to come out. “We get all ages, from newborns all the way up to people in their 90s,” he said. “We have a lot of different things going on during the day. A lot of different games for the kids. We have wom-

en’s ski jumping and a best dressed dog contest.” The Fresh Water Fisheries Society is coming to teach kids how to ice fish. Then there are all sorts of other activities including toboggan races, milk jug bowling, best catch fish decorating, snow painting, tug of war and snowball toss. Every year they also do a draw to send a kid to Disneyland. The trip is donated every year by Dacota Freight, along with $1,000 spending money.

Half of the funds raised for the derby goes to emergency aid for kids with Canadian Cancer Society programs and the other half goes into an account that the Family Fishing Derby administers directly. “We’re helping a girl in Kimberley that just got her cancer back recently,” he said. She is currently undergoing chemo at the Calgary Children’s Hospital. “We’ll be helping her out this week and she’ll be in the draw as well.”

To take part in the derby, no fishing license is necessary. Entry tickets are required to participate in events. There are are also prizes for the fishing derby: the top prize is a 12 foot Lund boat and trailer. The first place prize for kids is a 50 inch TV and a Playstation 4. There will also be a 50/50 draw, door prizes and a silent auction. For more info on the derby go to

Christmas 1913: The remains of a day C hristmas, 1913. One hundred Cranbrook Christmases have passed since then. Still, on a quiet winter’s evening it is possible to walk the streets of old Cranbrook and imagine how things were a century ago (just a short mental walk, mind you, in case you’re busy watching TV rather than reading this). Things remain: people are born (159 that year), people die (54 of them in 1913, including at least two children who died that December, the infant death rate being significantly higher in those days), and 61 couples (half male, half female) married. It was an age of electricity and automobiles, of telephones (650 customers) and movies, all on a smaller scale of

Jim Cameron course. But then, Cranbrook was a smaller town. As far as marriages and funerals and such go, the Anglican Church of Burwell (13th) Avenue is the only church remaining of the original five situated along Louis (1st) Street in 1913. Numerous empty lots between the church and the business district were yet to be filled (“A

nice gift for the wife,” suggested a local real estate firm). Rotary Park was there (more or less). Actually less, since much of the park was taken up by the city arena which opened for the season during the first week of December. The weather was mild but the ice set up nicely and the curlers, hockey players and skaters soon filled the big old barn while the city orchestra provided the tunes. Basketball was popular. The new Young Men’s Club on the corner of Louis Street and Hanson (8th) Avenue saw numerous games that month. It’s a parking lot now but it was a hub of sporting activity at the time.

The searchers were able to keep in touch with their families and friends in Canada through a satellite tracker provided by Sparwood Communications. MacLeod said that even when they were out in the alpine without cell reception, they could still send texts to their loved ones, letting them know they were okay. The main group of searchers returned to Canada on Dec. 15. MacLeod was part of a group of six who remained a few more days to continue searching. They returned to Cranbrook on Dec. 19.

Finding no trace of Srawn was a blow to everyone, MacLeod said. “The most frustrating part is we didn’t find anything or any clues to where he might be,” said MacLeod. “The family had expended a large amount of money to get us there, hoping for some results, and we weren’t able to provide that.” In particular, Srawn’s father was very disappointed the search was not fruitful. “He still holds out hope that Prabh could be surviving. He was nice and positive to us. However, everybody was disappointed that we weren’t successful – the searchers, the search manager and the family,” said MacLeod. “I don’t believe the family is going to call it quits. They might get other volunteers searchers involved, probably from Australia.”

Cranbrook 2013: The year in review Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

From fire to flood, new construction and saved heritage buildings, 2013 was a busy year in Cranbrook and Kimberley. From our viewpoint at the Townsman, we have picked the biggest stories of the year. In Part One, we look at the news of January through to April. As 2013 began Kimberley’s fire department

was still mopping up after a fire destroyed the Kootenay Cycle Works building in the Platzl on Dec. 28, 2012. If it weren’t for the department’s latest purchase, a ladder truck, the fire would have quickly spread to neighbouring businesses in the Platzl. As it was, the Gilded Goat also sustained some damage. It didn’t take long for Kootenay Cycle Works to rise from the ashes, join-

ing Rocky’s Ski and Snowboard, also on the Platzl, to form Kootenay Mountain Works in March. A Kimberley tradition came to an end after 39 years. In January, the Kimberley International Accordion Championships announced that the festival would not run again. Organizers said that increasing costs and falling revenue meant the festival was no longer

economically viable. Accolades and tributes to the festival poured in from all over North America. Some visitors asked the festival committee to reconsider, instead holding the festival one last time in 2013 for its 40th anniversary. But it was not to be. A 52-year-old Wasa man was killed in a motor vehicle accident on Jan. 7. Dale Andrew Davis was driving a pickup

truck through Wasa on Highway 95 when it hit the ditch and rolled. Davis was killed instantly. Cranbrook Search and Rescue paid it forward after purchasing a new rescue truck. The volunteer-run organization took advantage of donations and grants to replace a rescue truck it had outgrown. After its new truck arrived, Cranbrook Search and Rescue put the word out to other B.C. Search and Rescue groups who may be smaller and have good use for the older vehicle. The very grateful Keremeos Search and Rescue took advantage of the offer to replace a truck that was on its last legs. Cranbrook City Council supported a liquor license application for the then-unnamed Heid-Out Restaurant and Brewhouse. Owner Heidi Romich revealed plans to turn her popular restaurant, Heidi’s, into a brewhouse where customers could sample beer brewed on-site. The development sailed through the approval process. After a competition to name the pub was run in the Townsman, the HeidOut was chosen and the restaurant opened in June. The United Church of Canada Kootenay Presbytery threw its support behind the Ktunaxa’s bid to save its sacred Qat’muk territory from the development of Jumbo Glacier Resort.

The support came as the United Church met with Ktunaxa elders to reaffirm its apology for the harm done to First Nations children and their families in the residential school program. Beloved Cranbrook citizen Ruby Sinclair passed away in January at the age of 95. The long-time volunteer and Kootenay Ice fan will be remembered for many years to come. Canadian rock legends the Tragically Hip played to a sold-out crowd at Western Financial Place in Cranbrook in January, kicking off their “Now For Plan A” Canadian road trip. Barely a week later, Jaffray hometown favourite and country music star Dean Brody played at the Key City Theatre, “a couple of walls away” from where he went to high school. A gala celebration at the Heritage Inn in January celebrated Citizen of the Year Jason Wheeldon. The local realtor, volunteer and fundraiser extraordinaire was recognized by the Cranbrook and District Chamber of Commerce in front of his colleagues, peers, family and friends. The federal government proposed reshuffling its riding to include Nelson in the Kootenay-Columbia riding, with a seat held by Conservative MP David Wilks. After a public consultation period, the new riding boundaries were finalized in June.

Wycliffe residents Peter Moody and Susan Bond opened up to the Bulletin about their harrowing encounter with a grizzly bear in Nov. 2012. The pair told how they stumbled upon a sow grizzly with her two cubs, feeding on a deer carcass. Acting in defence, the sow attacked Susan and Peter, causing serious injuries to their heads, arms and legs. They were able to walk to a nearby home for help, but spent several weeks in hospital in Calgary recovering.

In February, a trial got underway in Kamloops for three Cranbrook men charged over a plot to kill a local drug rival. A criminal turned police agent John Garry Shank testified against Lorne Carry, Lonnie Adams and Colin Correia. Shank became a police agent in the investigation after he was arrested on breach of parole. He then wore a recording device in meetings with the three men, while they discussed a plan to kill Doug Mahon. The trial continued until April when the three men were found guilty. In August, Correia was sentenced to 12 years in jail. Carry received a 10 year sentence. Adams, who was found guilty of counselling to commit murder, instead of the more serious conspiracy to commit murder, was sentenced to five years in jail.

2013 in Review Local climbing athlete Gord McArthur was chosen to represent Canada at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games. The Cranbrook resident was selected by the Alpine Club of Canada to participate in the demonstration sport of ice climbing. Cranbrook highschool student Keltie Murdoch travelled to Taiwan in February. Keltie was presenting her award-winning project, Geo Air, at the Taiwan International Science Fair. On Feb. 19, the Jumbo Mountain Resort Municipality was officially incorporated with an appointed mayor and council. At the same time, the West Kootenay Eco Society filed an injunction against the B.C. government, asking for a judicial review of the creation of the municipality. Environmental group Wildsight held a rally in front of the municipality’s first council meeting in Radium. When the B.C. government announced its budget in February, it included a multi-million dollar investment in the East Kootenay Regional Hospital. Together with the Hospital District, the Ministry of Health are funding a $19.9 million renovation at the hospital to create a new Intensive Care Unit and upgrade the electrical system. The project is expected to break ground in spring 2014. The City of Cranbrook conducted its second urban deer cull in February, taking 24 deer in an 18-day period. During the cull, two of the borrowed clover traps were vandalized, and a protest was held in Cranbrook. Mayor Wayne Stetski said council was left with little choice but to cull because the province has not approved other methods of wildlife control such as relocation. Master gardener, volunteer and arts enthusiast Jenny Humphrey was named Woman of the Year by the Canadian Federation of University Women – Cranbrook chapter. Humphrey was

Continued from page 4 celebrated in a touching ceremony in March before family, friends and colleagues. Young filmmaker Kaio Kathriner was in his hometown of Cranbrook in February to make a short film, The Hunt for the Mad Trapper. With a cast made up of Kaio’s high-school friends and Vancouver actors, The Mad Trapper told a version of the Northwest Territories legend. A Cranbrook oldtimer who heard about the filming got in touch with the filmmaker to tell what he knew secondhand from an old buddy who had taken part in the real-life hunt for the mad trapper. Those interviews will be used in some capacity in the film, Kathriner said. A group of three friends from Cranbrook who formed a video game company launched its first product at a Boston video game convention. The Eon Alter is a hybrid video game and role-playing game that uses smart devices and is played by a group of people together in real time. A 19-year-old Marysville woman had a harrowing story to tell after her vehicle plunged off the road near the McPhee bridge in February. Lillie Young broke


her back in the accident that occurred just after midnight. But no one saw the accident, and Lillie’s vehicle was hidden from view down the embankment. The tenacious teen spent the frigid night in the upside down car under a blanket. The next morning she managed to crawl up the steep embankment and wave to passing cars for help. Several vehicles passed by the injured woman before a driver finally stopped and took her to get help. Students at Laurie Middle School organized a rally against bullying, Pink the Rink, during a Kootenay Ice game on March 2. Hundreds of Cranbrook school kids performed a flash mob during the first period to the Selena Gomez hit “Who Says”. The East Kootenay celebrated the success of the Clear View campaign to buy a digital mammography machine for East Kootenay Regional Hospital. Over 11 months, the campaign raised $1 million through enormous community support. The machine was put to work right away. A 37-year-old woman was charged with murder and arson over the March death of a 47-year-old Marysville man. Claudia de As-


sumpcao was the girlfriend of Jordon Lomsnes. Her case is continuing in Cranbrook’s criminal court, with her next court appearance scheduled for Jan. 13, 2014. CP Rail laid off 22 per cent of its Cranbrook-based running trade workforce – 46 locomotive engineers, conductors and train men. The company said the layoffs were related to seasonal ebbs and flows and fluctuations in the commodities that are transported from Cranbrook.

building behind City Hall. Since that original decision, a local group has stepped forward, offering to fund the preservation of the old electrical building that was built in 1936 with bricks from Cranbrook’s brick yard. Council has reversed its decision, giving the group one year to raise the necessary funds to protect the building. While on the topic of buildings old and new, council reluctantly approved the construction of a new complex near Wal-Mart in March, despite concerns about traffic congestion in the area. Construction is now underway on the building that will contain Sport Chek and Dollar Tree stores.

A coalition of environmental group called for a moratorium on coal mining in the Elk Valley after a March U.S. study into river pollution. Researchers at the University of Montana found that levels of nitrogen, sulphate and selenium were as much as 1,000 times the background rate in the Elk River. Teck immediately took action through a Selenium Management Action Plan, one of the largest water quality management programs of its kind in the world. In April, the B.C. Ministry of Environment gave Teck an Area Based Management Plan Order, directing it on how to move forward with mining activities in light of the environmen-

tal concerns.

A Kimberley man was killed in an avalanche in March. He was one of a group of snowmobilers who travelled to the Hellroaring Creek area on a memorial run for another Kimberley resident who also died in an avalanche there four years ago. The Canadian Avalanche Centre warned other backcountry users that the risk was high in many parts of the province.

In March, Tembec sold its Skookumchuck pulp mill to Vancouver-based Paper Excellence Canada. Almost 300 people work at the pulp mill, and their jobs were included in the $89 million sale.

A hopeless wish list for 2014 Here are a few things I’d like to see in B.C. political life in the coming year, but won’t. An orderly schedule of legislature sittings, one in the spring and one in the fall. I canvassed this topic with Premier Christy Clark in our year-end interview, and got the usual runaround about how it’s always been optional since old Gordon what’s-his-name set the schedule of sittings and elections more than a decade ago. Spring is for the budget and MLAs sit in the fall if they need to discuss legislation. They need to all right, but what governments want to do is ram it through as fast as they can, so that’s what they do. The last couple of years of this have been a sham worthy of a South American banana republic, with three chambers running simultaneously and opposition members trying to prepare as they run down the hallways. It leads to mistakes in new laws and adds to the public’s cynicism about the whole business, but it gets things done with minimum exposure of the government to criticism. Stephen Harper would approve. A political debate about real issues, rather than just a competition to score

points in an endless election campaign. I appreciate that this is hopelessly naive, but setting aside enough time to consider issues could, at least in theory, lead to that happening occasionally. Certainly the hastily staged mock combat of our legislature today isn’t winning new friends for any political party. The main growth area today is people who have given up on the whole thing. An opposition with BC VIEWS ideas. Tom The B.C. NDP will have Fletcher another leadership contest in 2014, and they’d better bring more modern policy to the table than they had in the last one. Remember the big issues in that pillow-fight? Me neither. I had to look them up. Health care? Local organic carrots into the hospital food. Forest industry? A job protection commissar to force the mills to stay open. Resource development? They’re for it, unless you’re against it. These guys need a Tony Blair-type makeover. They need to be for something, and they need to leave the past behind. Media that care about more than conflict. News organizations are in bad shape these days, and the competition for a rapidly fragmenting audience is having some ugly effects. One thing that needs to go is obsessive


coverage of who’s winning and who’s losing. If the news media are going to be interested mainly in the gaffes and gotcha moments, is it any surprise that’s what politicians try to provide? The Canada Post announcement that it has to wind up home delivery offers a recent example. Is it really so outrageous for the CEO to suggest that walking to the corner is good exercise? When there’s a 24-hour news cycle to fill, it’s a scandal! How many people know that Canada Post’s unfunded pension liabilities amount to $6.5 billion, as it continues to pay a dwindling workforce to hand out mostly advertising flyers? Should they just keep doing that until they run out of cash? Are taxpayers really expected to maintain another two-tier service that’s only available to selected urban people? Facts to go with opinions. Whether it’s the government’s fantasy figures on job creation or the opposition’s arithmetic-challenged child poverty claims, serious problems can’t be understood, much less solved, without defining them accurately. Submitting government advertising to scrutiny by the Auditor General to make sure it is accurate and non-partisan would be a good place to start.

It happened in Cranbrook Dav i d H u m p h r e y

News and notes from Cranbrook’s early days, for the week of Dec. 22 – 28. Items compiled from the archived newspapers held at the Cranbrook Museum and Archives. 1899 Weather … Christmas Day this year was a most unusual one for this climate. The warm weather for nearly a week previous had caused the snow to entirely disappear from the lowlands, and in some places the grass had gotten green, which presented a peculiar sight for holiday week. Last fall M. Phillipps, of Tobacco Plains, predicted an open winter, and it looks as if his prediction was to be verified. Hudson’s Bay Company Coming … General Manager Whyte, of the C P. R., was a passenger on the west bound train this morning. To a Herald representative he stated that Mr. Chipman, of the Hudson’s Bay company, had secured permission from the board of control in England to build a store in Cranbrook, and that in all probability Mr. Chipman would be in Cranbrook before many weeks to take another look over the field. For Sale … Our Coats. For boys, all sizes, $3.75, for a few days, Maggs & Hughes. Furniture and Caskets … B. C. Furniture & Undertaking Co. Manufacturers of all Kinds of Upholstered Furniture and Mattresses. We Sell Retail at Wholesale Prices. Undertakers and Embalmer. Perdue Block, Opposite Canadian Bank Commerce. For the Overworked … What are the causes of despondency and melancholy? A disordered liver is one cause

and a prime one. A disordered liver means a disordered stomach, and a disordered stomach means disturbance of the nervous system. This brings the whole body into subjection and the victim feels sick all over. Parmelee’s Vegetable Pills are a recognized remedy in this state and relief will follow their use. Women’s Ailments … Women are coming to understand that the Backaches, Headaches, Tired Feelings and Weak Spells from which they suffer are due to wrong action of the kidneys. The poisons that ought to be carried off are sent back into the blood, taking with them a multitude of pains and aches. DOAN’S Kidney Pills drive away pains and aches, make women healthy and happy - able to enjoy life. Mrs.C. H. Gillespie, 204 Britain Street, St. John, N.B., says: “ Some time ago I had a violent attack of La Grippe. From this, severe kidney trouble arose, for which I doctored with a number of the best physicians in St, John, but received little relief. Hearing Doan’s Kidney Pills highly spoken of, I began their use and in a short time found them to be a perfect cure. Before taking these pills I suffered such torture that I could not turn over in bed without assistance. Doan’s Kidney Pills have rescued me from this terrible condition, and have removed every pain and ache. Work while you sleep without a gripe or pain, curing Dyspepsia, Sick Headache and Constipation and make you feel better in the morning, Price 25c. 1900 Speaks Well For Cranbrook … Mr. Gill, who has charge of the townsite office during Mr. Baker’ s absence, says that notwithstanding that real estate is naturally slow at this

time of the year, yet he finds that lots in Cranbrook are in great demand, and purchases are being made almost every day. There are quite a number of persons getting ready to build, and are now selecting locations. This speaks well for the growth of Cranbrook. Cranbrook Electric Light Co., Ltd. Rates for Electric Lights … Stores/Offices/Hotels: 1-5 lights; $1 dusk to 12; $1.40 all night Private Houses: 75¢ for 16 candle power Private Homes: 50¢ for 8 candle power 10 percent is allowed on all accounts paid before the 10th of the month. Applications may be made to the electrician Mr. Ewart who will quote the cost of wiring, or to the undersigned. Chandeliers, shades, etc. at Miner’s Hardware Store. W. F. GURD, Secretary-Treasurer. Telegraph … A new telegraph wire is being placed along the C. P. R. from Nelson to Winnipeg. It will facilitate business in Cranbrook and other leading cities. 1902 Do You Want $50? Or $30, or $20? If so, read this. Hill & Co, the hustlers have a new plan that is extremely attractive. They have put $100 in a glass box in their window. The box is sealed and locked. With the box there are 2,000 keys, and in that two thousand there are just three keys that will open the box. For every $5 cash purchase, Mr. Hill gives you a key, or two keys for $10, and so on. When the 2,000 keys are gone, then those holding keys will be permitted to try them. The first one to open will take $50, the second $30, and the third $20. Call in and see any of the Hill boys and they will explain the matter. You

might as well have the right key as not. The Churches of Cranbrook … Cranbrook’s spiritual welfare is simply provided for with four protestant churches and one Catholic The Catholic Church was built here three years ago. It is a modest structure and during the last year it has been enlarged and the grounds improved. Father Ouelette has had charge, and the membership has largely increased during the past y e a r .. Christ Church, Cranbrook, has the distinction of being the first place of worship erected in the town. Through the efforts of a few adhearants of the church of England a church was erected on Baker Hill in the summer of 1898. At that time, and for some time afterwards there was no resident minister in Cranbrook but the church was served by from Fort Steele where the Rev. C. Procunier was stationed and this was carried on until Jun e 1901 when the Rev. Havelock Beachem, the present rector was appointed. Christ Church has had a steady increase in congregation so much, so indeed that this year it was found necessary to enlarge the church some twelve hundred, dollars having been spent in this way. The first work of the Presbyterians in Cranbrook was done during construction by Rev. Oliver, who acted as missionary along the Crow. He was followed by Rev. McPherson, who collected the first funds for the Cranbrook church. Rev. Ball came next and he held services in empty store buildings, but worked with energy for funds for the church, and finally saw the present building erected. After Rev. Ball’s departure, several ministers were in charge for short peri-

ods until January , 1900, when a call was extended to Rev. W. G. H. Fortune, who is still pastor. Under his charge the church has prospered and the building greatly improved, and a handsome manse erected. The church will be out of debt the first of the year. Its membership has greatly increased, and it is in a most prosperous condition. The Baptists began work in this district in 1899 when the Rev. J E Coombes, visited the neighborhood and held services in the surrounding country. Mr. Coombes was followed at different times by the Rev. P. H. McEwen, superintendent of missions, who in 1900 arranged for the settlement in Cranbrook of the Rev. D. Holford, who remained about one and a half years. A church building was erected duri g Rev. Holford’s pastorate, at a cost of S3, 000. In October 1901, the church was opened and Rev. F. W. Auvache, the present pastor, given charge of the work. The membership has steadily increased under Rev. Auvache, and the church is now in a healthy condition. The Methodist church was organized by Rev. George E. Smith who came in 1899, and at the end of the first year there were 50 members and the present edifice built. Rev. Smith was succeeded by Rev. Bowering who remained two years to be succeeded by Rev. S. J. Thompson. Many improvements have been made the past year, and the membership is now 95, with a Sunday school of 107, and an Epworth League of 40 members.

Ice resume WHL schedule with a clash against Chiefs Scott Niedermayer to be honoured in a pre-game ceremony TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The WHL resumes on Friday night as the Kootenay Ice get back in action against the Spokane Chiefs. It will be a special night for the city, which will honour Cranbrook native Scott Niedermayer’s hockey hall of fame career with a pregame ceremony and puck drop. The Chiefs feature the league’s top scorer in Mitch Holmberg, who has collected 37 goals and 37 assists for 74 points in 35 games. Paired up with Holmberg is fellow overage forward Mike Aviani, who is sixth in the points race. The two snipers have combined to score roughly half the team’s goals so far in the campaign. Barring any injuries, the Chiefs should have a full roster, while Kootenay is without captain Sam Reinhart, who is competing with Team Canada at the World Junior Championship and rookie defenceman Troy Murray, who is with Team West at the U17 World Hockey Challenge in Nova Scotia. Two prospects have been called up in Dylan Overdyk and Austin Wellsby, who will join the team to cover those absences. The first half of the




season has been a little up and down for the Ice, which have struggled a bit to find consistency in their game. Injuries in goal, defence and up front haven’t helped the situation either. However, the team proved just how important the second half of the season is last year, rallying to 25 wins and earning a 15th consecutive playoff spot.

“Coming into the year, we had a lot of veterans, we had a lot of hype around the team this year and I think we can do a little better.” Austin Vetterl “I’d say we definitely got a long ways to go right now,” said Austin Vetterl, after their final game of the pre-Christmas schedule against Lethbridge. “Coming into the year, we had a lot of veterans, we had a lot of hype around the team this year and I think we can do a little better. “18-16, I guess is okay, but we’re a betterthan-okay team.”

MBSS alumni run basketball camp TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

As students return home from colleges and universities for the holidays, Mount Baker alumni gathered at the school gym to put on a one-day camp for the senior girls basketball team on Monday. Sisters Chelsea and Katie Nutini, along with Paige McGowan, got together with the high school team coaches— coincidentally their dads, Al Nutini and Joe McGowan—to put the girls through their paces and give them a taste of what it looks like to play college-level basketball. The Nutini sisters are currently playing together at St. Mary’s University College in Calgary, while McGowan formerly played for North Idaho College and Eastern Washington University. McGowan handled a morning session focused mostly on leadership and the importance of teamwork and communication, while the Nutini sisters took the lead on running drills in the afternoon. The day concluded with an alumni game in the evening. McGowan summed up the morning as time set towards team building in the school library before getting down to business on the court in the afternoon. “I think the foundation of success comes from a team that understands each other and shares values and has established an under-

The Nutini sisters participated in an open practice and helped the girls work on pure shooting and playing tough defence. “I think we’re just trying to really improve their skills and make them confident in playing,” said Katie.

“Getting around screens and how to play tough-on-ball defence and just show their passion for the game through their defence, which should bring energy to their offence.” Chelsea took the lead on teaching shooting skills. “We’re really going to dissect their form and their release time and their confidence as a shooter,” she said. “We’re going to work on what being a shooting guard is, getting in the proper mindset to be successful.” Chelsea has made stops at Langara College in Vancouver and SAIT in Calgary before joining up with her sister and the St. Mary’s basketball squad this year. St. Mary’s is having a tough go in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) with a winless record in 11 games, but the two sis-

ters are enjoying the fact that they get to play together. Chelsea describes her sister as being a gritty player who relishes in playing a tough defensive game. “That’s where Katie plays her best games, when she’s getting the rebounds, when she’s doing little things like that,” she said. “She’s also a phenomenal shooter, got a quick release.” Katie added that having a sibling connection on the court can mean plays develop without even talking to each other. “Her court vision, she see’s the court very well and she knows where to be always, which is really nice to play with and she knows the right decisions to make,” said Katie. “Not only that, but she’s a great shooter.” When it comes to getting noticed by

post-secondary institutions to join athletic programs, McGowan said exposure of any sort is key. While attending a camp in the States with the MBSS high school team, McGowan was noticed by a coach at North Idaho, who brought her into the program. However, if high school students have that passionate drive to play college or university-level basketball, it doesn’t hurt to contact the school—or even head coach—directly. “Just because some people are recruited doesn’t mean players can’t send tapes or contact coaches themselves, or go to colleges and be a walk-on,” said McGowan.”Because at NIC and Eastern, we had players on our team who showed up to practice and said, ‘I want to try out.’ “And they ended up being on the team, because they were awesome basketball players and the coaches wouldn’t have found them or met them otherwise, and sometimes those are the best players, because they seek out that opportunity more than a player that got invited for a fullride.”

Canada routs Germany 7-2 to open World Junior Championship Bill Beacon Canadian Press

MALMO, Sweden - Anthony Mantha looked more relieved than jubilant after his three goals helped Canada start the world junior championship with a victory. It may be because there had been doubts the Longueuil, Que., native would make the team - despite lighting up the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League this season - because of his questionable defensive play. No one doubted his ability to put the puck in the net, as Mantha demonstrated with a hat trick in Canada’s 7-2 win over Germany on Thursday. “It’s a great feeling,” the lanky, six-foot-four right winger said. “For me, personally, I had to get a big game going and I think that’s what I did.” It helped that Mantha was on a line with perhaps Canada’s most dynamic playmaker in Jonathan Drouin, who assisted on all three of his goals - two on power plays and one at even strength. But Mantha, the grandson of former NHL forward Andre Pronovost, scores wherever he plays. He had 35 goals in only 32 games with the Val d’Or Foreurs before joining Team Canada two weeks ago for the run-up to the world juniors. He has 85 goals in 99 games over the last season and a half. Coach Brent Sutter said what clinched his spot was that ability to put the puck in the net, which there is not a lot of on this squad compared to past world junior teams. Sutter hopes a crash course in 200-foot hockey will make the Detroit Red Wings pros-

pect a more complete player as the tournament goes on. “He can score goals, but there are other aspects of his game he needs to continue to work on,” said Sutter. “Things I’ve talked to him about one on one. “It’s simple. It’s being a competitor in all three zones and making sure he’s responsible in all three zones. Not just for this tournament, but for him to be a good pro. Especially with the organization he’ll go to in Detroit. That’s what they expect there. You can’t just play the offensive side of the puck.” Sutter said Mantha wants to learn and feels he is already “a better player now than when he joined the team 11 days ago. That comes from our conversations. He understands that he’s not going to get on the ice if he’s only going to be a power-play guy.” He got a passing grade in twoway play against the Germans, who were overmatched but took advantage of some early Canadian sloppiness to keep the score close through the first 15 minutes of play. Mantha has a remarkably quick release for a big man, and having the clever Drouin laying passes on his stick could be a vital asset as the tournament moves on and the competition gets tougher. He said his grandfather, who scored 109 goals in 556 NHL games from 1957 to 1968 for Montreal, Boston, Detroit and the Minnesota North Stars, was a key influence in his hockey development. He said Pronovost taught him “three key points” to success, but won’t reveal them all. “One is work,” he offered.

But he still went into the team’s selection camp two weeks ago in Toronto looking to prove he can do more than score. “For sure I had to make an impression,” he said. “Not every player was guaranteed a spot and I had to battle through it. I got great news and now I’m trying to carry it on.” Drouin has played with Mantha before in an exhibition series and feels that chemistry is developing. “Anthony’s a big guy,” said the third overall pick of the Tampa Bay Lightning. “He’s hard to play against in the corners and everything. I try to use my hands and speed and I think we complement each other pretty well.” The Canadian team got a rousing welcome from the crowd of 1,831 - nearly all wearing Hockey Canada jerseys - at the 5,800seat Isstadion, but still looked nervous as the game began. The Germans got the opening goal off a faceoff in the Canada zone as Dorian Saeftel put a shot through traffic that fooled goalie Jake Paterson only 1:35 into the game. After Josh Anderson and Mantha gave Canada a lead, Janik Moser tied it for Germany after defenceman Adam Pelech whiffed on a clearing attempt. Then Canada took over as Mantha and Bo Horvat got goals before the intermission, Sam Reinhart and Mantha added goals in the second period and Nic Petan finished a play engineered by 16-year-old Conner McDavid in the third. The shots were 30-24 for Canada, but the game was not nearly that close.

TORONTO - Milos Raonic entered uncharted territory for a Canadian men’s tennis player this year, reaching the top 10 in the world singles rankings and leading the Davis Cup team to unprecedented heights. He also won two tournaments in 2013 and thrilled Canadian fans by reaching the final of the Rogers Cup last summer. He capped his impressive year Thursday by winning the Lionel Conacher Award as the 2013 Canadian Press male athlete of the year. Raonic made some big strides this year despite going through some early-season struggles and a coaching change. “The fact that I was performing under those circumstances when

things weren’t the best leading into those events, it’s really great for me,” he said. “It’s what I’m most proud of.” The Conacher award is named after the multisport athlete who was chosen Canada’s athlete of the first half-century.

The winner of the Bobbie Rosenfeld Award as Canada’s female athlete of the year will be announced Friday and the team of the year will be named Saturday. Raonic finished with 45 per cent of the vote in balloting of sports edi-

tors and broadcasters across the country. Calgary Stampeders running back Jon Cornish was well back at 22 per cent, followed by golfer Graham DeLaet (13 per cent) and figure skater Patrick Chan (eight per cent).

Holmberg and the Chiefs will face the Ice Continued from page 8 Running up to the break, Kootenay was running three lines up front because of injuries and turned overeager Zach McPhee to a defenceman—a position he is pretty familiar with. “I played there growing up, actually, pretty much all the way through minor hockey until I came into the league at 16,” said McPhee, “so it’s obvi-

ously been a little bit of a learning curve for me going back there, but it’s not too big of a change.” Like Vetterl, McPhee said he thinks the team has more to give. “I think we’ve come a long way in some areas and I think we can grow in others, for sure,” McPhee said. “I think we have to get more consistent in our play. We can’t just have a

good game and then peel off the game after that.” NOTES: Kootenay was missing Ryan Chynoweth, Jagger Dirk, Tanner Faith and Rinat Valiev to injuries before the break. As of the last injury report on Dec. 17, Chynoweth and Dirk were upper-body—one week, while Valiev was lower-body day-to-day. Faith is still out indefinitely with an upper-body injury.






Raonic voted Canada’s male athlete of the year

HOROSCOPES by Jacqueline Bigar

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Note that people’s moods have changed. Make time for a partner or loved one with whom you often take off. Why not enjoy some special time together? A practical discussion will help set the pace for the next few days. Tonight: Dinner for two. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Defer to others. You might want to escape the holiday fervor and do something completely unrelated. A friend with lots of imagination could turn up and add some fun to the moment. Allow your creativity to flow. Tonight: Say “yes” to an invitation. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You have some important matters that demand your attention. You might sense that a parent or higher-up needs your time as well. You will be able to juggle both effectively. A call involving a partner could head your way. Tonight: Get some much-needed rest. CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Investigate the alternatives that surround a child or loved one. This person might want a change, and you might not be comfortable with the idea. Keep communication open. Your emotional response might be right-on. Tonight: Enjoy those around you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Be more in touch with a family member’s needs. Your ability to visualize what someone else wants will help you please others. Use this talent now. Be sensitive to what might not be working properly, be it your car or some other mechanical item. Tonight: Stay close to home. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You express your opinions tentatively yet honestly. You tend to put a partner or loved one on a pedestal, where there is only one place to go: down. Be aware of how you are building this person up. Tonight: Favorite place, favorite people. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Be more upbeat and positive in dealing with a financial matter. Your attitude could carry over


into a negotiation or conversations in general. Listen to your inner voice, but pull back before acting. Tonight: Your treat. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Beam in more of what you want. Listen to news with greater attentiveness. Understand what is happening within your family and recognize what needs to be done. Someone you care about needs to talk and clear the air. Tonight: Return a call from a relative. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Know what is happening behind the scenes, but understand that you might not be privy to all the conversations. Listen well and ask insightful questions. A partner will let you know how much you are appreciated. Tonight: Get some extra sleep. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Calls come in, and before you know it, you are off doing what you want. A neighbor or close relative will request some of your time. Make it your pleasure. You have a lot of information coming your way! Tonight:

Where the crowds are. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You might have to handle some work or manage a project that has been on the back burner for too long. Use good sense with money, as it could be slipping through your fingers like water. Count your change. Tonight: Grab some munchies with a loved one. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Try to get an overview of a situation and determine which direction you want to head in. You might think that you have a more constructive solution. Test it out on several people before you decide to make it real. Tonight: Go for some exotic cuisine. BORN TODAY Chemist Louis Pasteur (1822), mathematician Johannes Kepler (1571), actress Marlene Dietrich (1901) *** Jacqueline Bigar is on the Internet at www.jacquelinebigar. com.

ANNIE’S MAILBOX by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: One of my sisters has a lovely cat, but when we go somewhere with her, the kitty litter odor is overwhelming. It clings to her clothing and follows her everywhere. My sister is highly sensitive to criticism, so we haven’t approached her about this. She probably doesn’t notice the smell because she lives with the odor every day. We think she might be storing the sacks of unused litter in her closet with her coats, etc., and this is why it is so noticeable. She is an avid reader of your column, so we are hoping she will see this and realize the odor can be controlled if she simply keeps the litter stored in her garage. -- Concerned Sister Dear Concerned: Most unused kitty litter doesn’t have such a distinctive odor that it would be terribly noticeable, but nonetheless, it should not be stored near clothing, because clothes can absorb the odor of whatever is nearby. It’s also possible your sister keeps the actual litter box in her bedroom or closet, or perhaps she doesn’t clean it as often as she should. We understand that she is sensitive to criticism, but don’t you think she would want to know that other people can smell her? Please bite the bullet and speak up. Tell her you are sure she’d want to know. Dear Annie: I was married for 20 years when my husband left me for another woman. At first, I was upset, but in the intervening years, I have changed my mind. Please print this for her: Dear Other Woman: I bet you thought you were the winner when my husband left to be with you. You have dealt with his drinking, pot smoking, heart disease, emphysema, baldness, toothless smile, erectile dysfunction and bad moods. You had to support him because he was chronically unemployed, and now you are his nursemaid 24/7. Because of you, I have had the freedom to love, live and travel. I also drive a new car and paid off a home he didn’t want. I have enjoyed children and grandchildren. I thank you. You may have saved my life. Women, if you think that man you want who belongs to someone else is a real prize, you haven’t seen the whole picture. -- Grateful Granny Dear Granny: We appreciate your voice of experience. More importantly, you have underscored that having a man in your life does not determine your level of happiness. Too many women believe otherwise. Dear Annie: I am responding to “Not Unsympathetic,” whose granddaughter’s birthday parties are “ruined” by a 6-year-old autistic stepgrandson. I am the mother of a child on the autism spectrum. While his autism is very mild and would not ruin family gatherings, I am sensitive to his issues. Many times, autistic children have a meltdown because the stimulation is too much for them. The sounds, smells and noise produce a fight-or-flight response. That is not the same thing as a tantrum, in which children become unruly because they aren’t getting their way. The stepgrandson isn’t going to the party with the intent of ruining it. Try to imagine a situation in which the noise is too much, the colors too bright, the smells overwhelming, and there are some alien rules of behavior that you don’t understand. Try to hold it together under those circumstances at the age of 6. When we’re out with our son, we do our best to anticipate what might cause a meltdown and try to avoid it. But sometimes we don’t know what’s going to trigger it. Your advice to have a separate family party sounds like a good start. -- Not Unsympathetic to the Child Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column. Please email your questions to, or write to: Annie’s Mailbox, c/o Creators Syndicate, 737 3rd Street, Hermosa Beach, CA 90254.

I need a home.

BENDER is a big compact boy, he is around 3 years old. Bender has short orange hair and is neutered. Bender is very sociable and affectionate. Bender loves to be picked up and cuddled, he came to us as a stray. He was dropped off at a families acreage and was keeping their mouse population under control for a while before it got to cold out. If you are looking for a very handsome cat who also will catch your mice look no further! 125A Slater Rd., Cranbrook, BC 250 417-0477 • 877 411 0477

A day in the life of an SPCA employee:

I need a home.

We arrive everyday at 8am to a shelter full of happy cats, dogs, rabbits, rats, bunnies, birds and whatever other domesticated animals we may have in that day. Today is good day! We only have 67 cats in our system, 8 dogs, 13 rats, 2 bunnies and no birds. We do a quick check on all of the animals to make sure there are no signs of parvo or distemper from any of the stray animals that came in the day before. Once the check is clear we are straight to work feeding, cleaning kennels, scooping cat litter, disinfecting dog and cat kennels, cleaning rodent cages, doing on average 12 loads of laundry, washing and disinfecting animal dishes and litter pans, vacuuming, and scrubbing floors. Once all of the cleaning is done we tend to the medical needs of the animals which includes vaccinating, giving medications, changing dressings, and whatever else may need fixing. We also spend time setting up fostering of animals who are to young or not healthy enough for shelter life. We run 6 kittens and 1 dog to the vet to get spayed or neutered. Also, Charlie the new dog, who was surrendered, has not eaten in 3 days and won’t get off his bed so we need to run him to the vet to make sure there aren’t any underlying issues. After returning from the vet we notice that there is a cardboard box left on the front step. We bring it in and it is a box of kittens without a mother. They are probably 2-3 days old. They are cold and hungry so we try to warm them as best as we can and feed them with a syringe. One of the girls will take them home for the night and try and keep them alive by waking and feeding them every couple of hours. We spend the afternoon greeting people, hoping they find their forever companion! This afternoon we take in 3 new cats, 5 new kittens, a stray dog, and a dog who is surrendered because he has too much energy. All of these new animals get physicals and medical exams and are evaluated to see if they are suitable for adoption or if they need some work. We find out from the vet that a cat that we have had in the shelter for 3 months, and have already spent $500 on her, is never going to get better and needs to be euthanize. All of us at the shelter love Ms. Beasley and now we have to say goodbye. A person leaves angry because we just don’t have room for his 2 cats and we have to put him on a waiting list. It all seems very overwhelming today!

DECKER is around 1 year old, he has short hair and is a brown tabby. Decker has a big personality. Decker is extremely loving, he craves people attention. Decker is a very smart cat, he has figured out how to open certain doors to let himself out where people are. Decker gets along with other cats and also likes dogs. This cat is full of personality and is also a great hunter!

I need a home


DINA is a 2 year old black and white short hair kitty with no tail. Dina came to us as a stray and we assumed at first that she was a manx, we took her to the vet for an examination and they said they think its from an old injury and she lost the rest of her tail. Dina is very affectionate and loves people, she gets along with other cats if they don’t crowd her space and would do good in a home with dogs too.

I need a home.

RYDER is a 3 year old neutered male, short haired tabby with white. Ryder is a BIG boy! He loves attention and is an amazing mouser. Ryder does not like other cats but he gets along with dogs. Ryder would be happiest in a home where he can go inside and outside. Ryder is affectionate and laidback. He is very sociable and affectionate and loves to be picked up and cuddled.

But, a great family comes in and adopts Sam, a 12 year old Shepard on medication twice a day, who was surrendered by his owners because they were moving. This is a dog that I thought never would get adopted! A 10 year old girl comes in and donates $175.00 that she raised at her birthday party! Another group of kids come in and bring in a bunch of new toys for the cats and dogs! A elderly couple brings their dog in that they adopted 6 months ago to show us how happy he is. A great end to a day! We then close shop, feed and tend to the animals once more before we shut off the lights and head home. It’s hard to leave at the end of the day. We want to stay and give all of our shelter animals the love that we didn’t have time to give today but we know we will be back tomorrow morning and it will all start again.

I need a home.


We all work at the SPCA because we love the work we do. We love the animals and we are their voice. Thank you to all of my wonderful staff and volunteers for doing the work you do. I am humbled by your commitment! I look forward to working with you in 2014!



SPOOK is a beautiful long haired tortoiseshell. She is about 6 years old and has an amazing personality. Spook came to our shelter because when her owners moved they left her in the apartment and she was found by the landlord. She is really easy going and sweet, she loves to be held and loves to be pet. Spook lived with another cat before and would probably adjust fine to living with a dog as well. If you are looking for a cat that is affectionate, friendly, loves to be petted and pampered? This is definitely the cat for you!



I need a home ELLA is affectionate and laidback 1 year old spayed female. She is a muted torti with short hair. She loves the company of other cats and gets along with dogs too. She loves people and children. Ella is very sociable and affectionate. She will enjoy lots of attention. Ella loves to be picked up and cuddled.

GEMMA is a spayed female, german shepherd cross. Approx. 1 1/2 years old. Good obedience and a confident guardian is important. She is house trained and very intelligent. She can be a little bit shy if other dogs run at her quickly. She should be introduced slowly to dogs and rewarded for relaxed behaviour and play. Gemma has a little bit of anxiety when you first leave her but she gets over it. 22-10th Ave. S., Cranbrook, BC 250-489-1729

Kiesha bonds quickly and loves attention, she is very loyal. She does not look or act like a 13 year old dog. This is a very sweet senior girl who still loves to go for walks and is very gentle.

I need a home.

SIMON is a 10 month old neutered male, border collie/lab cross. Simon is a very high energy dog. Simon knows how to sit, lay down, stay and shake a paw, he also has great recall. He is extremely smart and quick to learn new tricks. Simon is house trained as long as you are paying attention when he wants to go outside. We are currently working on Simons anxiety and further training. He can be a little bit timid when first meeting new people but doesn’t take much time to warm up to someone new.

I need a home. WILEY is a 5 year old neutered male all white cat. Wiley is a very playful and rambunctious guy with a lot of energy, he acts like a kitten. Wiley can be a little rough on other cats but loves people. He will be a great hunting cat for someone with mice. Wylie has a really good personality and he is quite a character here in our shelter.
