and area Official Community Plan (OCP) on Friday, Jan. 10. Planner Michele Bates went over the new plan with the directors on Jan. 9. Work began on replacing the outdated OCP in November 2012 with an introductory meeting and questionnaire. Visioning workshops were held in February 2013. A draft plan was presented to residents in August 2013.

Soon after, Bates explained, a business group formed in Wasa that was opposed to the OCP. “They were concerned the OCP did not support commercial development or residential development within the Wasa area.” A public information session was held in December to explain the OCP, attended by 115 people.

Representatives from the Kimberley Health Centre’s Interior Health team were given a warm welcome by Kimberley City Council Monday evening, but that didn’t mean they didn’t also receive a few pointed questions. Shannon Statham, Community Health Services Manager for Interior Health in Kimberley was at Council to keep them updated on services Interior Health provides at the Kimberley Health Centre as well as explaining IH’s strategy of reducing the need for high cost hospital and residential care by helping people to remain healthy in their own homes as long as possible. She also spoke of the challenges in providing services for an aging population in a large, mostly rural health authority as the baby boomers reach the age that they require more health services. Statham said that the population of those entering the period where use of the health care system will dramatically increase was growing at about 20 per cent. She said Interior Health was very proud of the services they provided at the Kimberley Health Centre

“We were promised palliative care when they shut our hospital down, in my mind we don’t have it” Coun. Hoglund and the way they were able to work with the physicians who run their practice at the Health Centre to provide more seamless coverage for those with chronic illnesses. When the floor was turned over for questions, Coun Albert Hoglund said he had a few comments, though he understood that Statham may not be able to answer. These, Hoglund said, were long time concerns of his. He said he understood the concept of wanting to keep people healthy in their own homes, but there does come a time when an aging person needs residential care. Hoglund’s concern was being able to access that care when needed. He said his father-in-law was currently in hospital waiting for a place.

Love, passion, simplicity: Lopez in concert Renowned guitarist playing the Key City Theatre in Cranbrook, Saturday, Jan. 25. Submitted

Oscar Lopez, one of Canada`s greatest guitarists, will be performing at the Key City Theatre on January 25 at 7:30 pm. Known for his intimate live performances, Oscar offers a unique flavour of Latin music that incorporates a mix of jazz, blues and pop. Born in Santiago, Chile to a middle-class family, Oscar was exposed to a wide variety of music from a young age. By age nine he began to experiment with different musical instruments, trying the violin, the mandolin and finally settling on the guitar. A “street learner” Oscar had no formal musical training and developed his craft by performing with his father, neighbours and friends at the local Pentecostal Church. By age 12 Oscar had taken a job at a local manufacturer making car antennas. The monotony of the job had a strong impact on Oscar who began to dedicate himself to his musical career. By 17 he was playing professionally and getting his

first taste of stardom with Chilean pop group The Grace of the King. In 1979, at 25 Oscar left Chile, which was labouring undering the repression of the Pinochet regime, and joined his sister in Winnipeg. Eventually making his home in Calgary, Oscar dedicated himself to his music — releasing 11 albums over a 23 year span. Professionally he achieved great success with seven Juno Award nominations, winning best instrumental album in both 2002 and 2005 for his albums “Armando’s Fire “ and “My Destiny”. Additionally, Oscar is a twotime recipient of the Hispanic Excellence Award and has been recognized as Instrumentalist of the Year by the Prairie Music Awards. But the road to success was not without its bumps for Oscar. From 2001 to 2004 he battled major depression sidelining him from preforming live and producing new music. Since breaking through his bout with depression, Oscar Lopez has rededicated himself

Oscar Lopez plays Cranbrook Saturday, Jan. 25 to his music and now lives by the mantra “love, passion, simplicity”. His live performances are an invitation to a very personal interaction between him and the audience. “My music is an extension

of my soul and life experiences,” Lopez explains. “My albums are the product of this internal and external collaboration. I revel in the thrill of watching an album take form.”

Bank withdrawal Campground to lost ten sites

C AROLYN GR ANT editor@dailybulletin.ca

Kimberley’s Riverside Campground is losing some prime real estate — but not by choice. Kimberley City Council received a geotechnical report on bank erosion at the campground this week. Coun. Albert Hoglund said that during the heavy rains and high water last June, the St. Mary River rose so

high that the bank at the campground sloughed down. An engineering study has determined that ten campsites will have to be closed due to the instability of the bank. “The sites they are losing are probably the most popular with beautiful views of the valley,” Hoglund said. “Unfortunately, with Mother Nature, there’s not much you can do.” The campsite will replace the ten sites at some point, Hoglund said.

Wasa OCP From Page 1 “Amendments were made to the OCP, and in addition a letter was sent to area residents to clarify when a development permit would be required, to mark residential development available in the Wasa area, and it also highlighted the policies that supported commercial development,” said Bates. In consultation, residents said they support moderate growth in Wasa, but wish to maintain the rural character in the areas around Wasa. Locals would like to see a stronger local economy, specifically tourism, and commercial development in the area. The OCP directs new residential development to Wasa Lake with subdivision supported for lots more than one hectare in size. “Currently there are between 50 and 60 lots in the Wasa area that could be subdivided without requiring a rezoning application,” said Bates. “The entire plan area has seen approximately 45 lots developed in the past 10 years.” The plan encourages commercial development such as restaurants, convenience

stores, gas stations and grocery stores, but in existing commercial areas and not along Wasa’s lakefront. Meanwhile, the OCP reflects residents’ value in open space and trails. “The OCP does encourage the integration of green spaces with new development, as well as trail connectivity within the development,” said Bates. Private and Crown land that has been historically used for agriculture is encouraged to maintain these purposes. The regional district is also establishing development permit areas over 28 per cent of Wasa lake and 72 per cent of Cameron Pond. The area extends 30 metres into the lake and 15 metres upland from the natural boundary. “During the meetings, the people that came or sent in comments made it very clear that they were concerned about the quality of their drinking water and of the quality of the lake water,” said Area E Director Jane Walter. “I feel that we are covering these concerns within the OCP.” Visit www.rdek.bc.ca to find out when public hearings on the Wasa OCP will be held in February.

L-R: East Kootenay Foundation for Health’s Donna Grainger (Executive Director) and Beth Bennett (Financial Officer) are all smiles as the joyful PT the Clown (aka Marilyn Christensen) stopped in to make a Starlite gift of $500 for the East Kootenay Regional Hospital Pediatric Department. The funds from this year’s PT the Clown show are being dedicated toward the purchase of comfort (equipment or entertainment) needs for children who may find themselves spending time on the unit. The Starlite Campaign continues until the end of January 2014 and EKFH will be issuing an update release in the next few days.

IH discusses Kimberley services From Page 1 “There are waiting lists at Garden View and the Pines. The waiting list at Joseph Creek is almost two years from what I understand. So my fatherin-law is supposed to go to the first available space and it could be in Golden or Fernie. That’s not easy for the family. It’s heartless. And if you look at the demographics it’s only going to get worse. There’s not enough residential care at the moment.” Statham said that she understands that a senior going out of town is hard on families, but IH was usually able to bring that person back to town within 90 days. Coun. Darryl Oakley, who works for Interior Health in Dementia Care said that was true. “It is consistent that people are coming back in 90 days. If they are sent to Creston or Fernie they are on priority to come back to their community. They are first on the list.” Oakley also said he hadn’t heard of anyone being sent as far as

Golden. Hoglund’s other concern was palliative care. IH literature does list a palliative unit in Kimberley, but Hoglund says it’s just not the case. “Kimberley does not have a palliative care unit,” he said. “IH says we do but it’s also used as a respite bed and for other things. So you can’t always access it for palliative care. To say we have palliative care in Kimberley is not correct. “We were promised palliative care when they shut our hospital down, in my mind we don’t have it. “I appreciate the job you are doing but sometimes I wonder if IH big wigs are listening to people in smaller communities.” Statham said she would take Hoglund’s concerns back to Interior Health. As far as the Health Centre itself, Statham said Kimberley’s health centre was a good model of how a health centre should work, with a good range of services, well-integrated and collaborative.

“It helps that the physicians are co-located at the Health Centre. They can run down the hall and consult.” Mayor Ron McRae said that while Kimberley will always feel the affects of the hospital closure, what was being offered at the Health Centre was a pretty good range of services and should be promoted.

The Weather Network 2014

Changes are coming in B.C. to a synthetic drug that is widely used to help recovering addicts. And doctors, pharmacies and agencies who help those who use it are scrambling to get the word out. Methadone helps people who are dependent on or addicted to other drugs like morphine and heroin. As of Feb. 1, 2014, the current methadone formula given out by pharmacists will change. British Columbia will transition to a new methadone formula, called Methadose, which is expected to provide a safer, more consistent treatment for patients. But methadose will have ten times the strength of the current formula. Almost 15,000 people in B.C. are on methadone programs — prescribed by physicians and dispensed at pharmacies. Locally, the East Kootenay Addiction Services Society (EKASS)in Cranbrook says it has about 90 methadone clients come through its office — though that doesn’t repre-

Methadone is typically dispensed in a solution combined with an orange-coloured drink, but a new formula will have far less liquid. sent all clients in the region. And the changes are a cause for concern, in that methadone users may not be aware of the vastly increased strength of the new formula. “There hasn’t been much notification about this,” said Dean Nicholson, Executive Director of EKASS. “And the risk we see is that because the volume of medication the people will be receiving will be increasing on a 10 to one basis. “Typically, when methadone users — or illicit methadone users; people on the street on the street who might be getting it — they’re thinking of it in terms of millili-

tres instead of milligrams. If they’re buying it on the street, they’re saying, ‘I’m not getting as much liquid as I normally would,’ and they might then throw more in there. But they’re actually getting a much higher dosage of the actual drug, which puts them at risk for overdose and death. “And, obviously, the illicit street users are not going to be getting the education that hopefully people are going to be getting through supervised dispenser sites.” Methadone is dispensed in a one-milligram-per-millilitre solution that is combined with an orange-coloured

drink, that clients drink at the pharmacy or take away as “carries.” Starting Feb. 1, Methadose. The new formula comes as a red, cherry flavoured solution, pre-prepared. Patients will receive the same dose of methadone, but the amount of liquid will be one-tenth as much as what they receive with the current formula. EKASS is setting out to do as much public notification as possible. “Certainly through our office we’re going to be talking to all our clients who are involved in methadone use,” Nicholson said. “We assume their prescribing doctor will be letting them know, but we’ll also be letting them know. “But also, people who we know who might be inclined to illicit methadone use, we want to make sure we get the word out to them. They may not be as aware of the risk. There is a third group of methadone users — those who use it for pain relief, and not because of any previous drug use. Methadone, in fact, was developed originally as a painkiller during the 1940s, due to a shortage of morphine during the Second World War. During the 1960s, it was found it

was helpful to people withdrawing from opioid addictions, namely heroin. Nicholson said that because people who use methadone for pain relief aren’t necessarily as “drug savvy, in a sense,” they may be inadvertently at risk if they’re not being informed of the changes as well. “Often, they may be given more ‘carries’ than some of our drug using clients,” Nicholson said. “Many of our clients who are drug dependent may have to do daily pickups. They can’t be trusted with five days worth of carries. But if you’re dealing with some kind of chronic pain issues, and you’re on methadone and you’re given a week or two weeks worth of carries at a time, and you’re a bit confused, and you might combine them.” EKASS doesn’t completely manage those clients who use methadone for pain. Those clients deal directly with methadone doctors’ offices. Deb Summers, Harm Reduction Manager at East Kootenay Addictions Services, encourages clients to contact her at the office, or their pharmacist or doctor for more information.

KIMBERLEY NEWS Newspaper, January 13, 1955 “Rites Held For Marysville Pioneer”

Funeral services were held on Tuesday, January 11, from McPherson Funeral Chapel, Kimberley, for the late Frederick Word Bird, Rev. F.A. McPhee of Kimberley United Church officiating. Interment followed in the Marysville Cemetery. Mr. Bird, who had resided in Marysville since 1908, was born at Fredericton, N.B., September 1, 1822, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Word Bird of Birch Corner, near Fredericton. He came west to the Prairies in 1906 and two years later came to Marysville where he worked for the Staples Lumber Company at their mill at Wycliffe for many years. He returned to his home in New Brunswick for a visit in 1914, returning to the west again and going up Perry Creek with his

brother where they worked their claims, panning gold first on their claims across the river from Marysville and later working the Birdeil and Homes Lake Claims, seven miles farther along. He had lived on Perry Creek ever since. Surviving are four brothers, Charlie at Marysville; Roland, who worked the Perry Creek claims with him; Watson G., in Fredericton and Ernest in their old home at Birch Corners; four sisters, Mrs. D. Valentine, of Mobile, Alabama; Mrs. Norman Bird, of Fredericton; Mrs. D. Hagerman of Birch Corner and Mrs. James Sutherland, of Kingston, Ontario; also two nephews, Donnie, of Marysville and Charlie Bird, of Prince George, B.C.

Library Moves To New Quarters

After years of seeking a permanent home, the Kimberley Public Library this week moved into new quarters in the old police building and is again “open for business”. The Library has been

housed in various corners of the city since it was formed as an association some eight years ago. For the past few years they have had one room in the Bus Depot building and were finding their quarters cramped as more and more books were added to the shelves. Last fall, an appeal was made to the city council and as a result it was decided that the Library should be given the use of a suite of three rooms in the old police building for a nominal rent of $25 per month, to be applied to the cost of heating and lighting the building which also still serves as a magistrate’s court. Actual task of removing the several thousand books in the Library was carried out by the Library Board assisted by many volunteers during last weekend. In the days following, a great deal of attention was given to the division of the Library’s various departments and patrons will find selection much more convenient than it has

been in the past. On entering the Library there is the Librarian’s room which also houses the books for children and teenagers. In a rear room, all the adult fiction is gathered together and arranged alphabetically by authors. A side room provides space for the non-fiction, reference books and a reading room. Financed by grants from the Community Chest and the Public Library Commission, the local Library operated by a Board comprising Mrs. Archie Chisholm, chairman; Mrs. J.W. Reynolds, Mrs. A. Ruffle, A.G. Stirling, Don Deleporte and Len Sambell. The actual work of Librarian is carried out by volunteers who each serve for an afternoon. They are Mrs. Gordon McCallum, Mrs. E. Holdsworth, Mrs. C.P. Reddick, Mrs. J. Scholfield, Mrs. C.P. Lane, Mrs. A.C. Mattingly, Mrs. R. Young, Mrs. Ken Campbell and Mrs. K.H. Montgomery.

A tale of two potholed cities T risha Fermor, a Cranbrook-area resident, said this: “The roads have never been as bad as they are now. Potholes are a pain in the neck. “There is to nowhere to avoid them. Coming into Biddenden Road is potentially dangerous for cyclists and motorcyclists.” Trisha Fermor is actually a resident of Wilsley Pound in Sissinghurst, which — whatever type of community that may be — is in the vicinity of Cranbrook. That’s actually Cranbrook, Kent, England. Yes, in the parallel universe that Col. James Baker somehow created, they’re complaining about the potholes, to such an extent that the publication “This Is Kent” (a compilation of various Kentish newspapers) did a feature story on the subject, headlined “The Roads Have Never Been So Bad.” Illustrating the story was a photograph of a jolly English pothole, which I, in the Cranbrook in the alternate universe, looked at with amusement. You call that a pothole? Back in Kent, the villagers are calling for a crackdown on the holes, all across the Weald. The holes are a menace to the Common Weal! “If a horse was to stumble into one of the caverns that lie on Dingleden Lane on the way to Sandhurst, their leg would break,” said one parish councillor. (I wish we had more street names like “Dingleden” in Cranbrook, B.C.). This is a problem I’ve never considered, that a horse could break his leg in our potholes (in Cranbrook, B.C.). The hoofed animals that populate our Cranbrook spring gaily over our holes, or dance nimbly around them, all the while dodging the traffic. In the meantime, we’re bringing our motorcarriages into shops on a regular basis to replace our suspension systems.

A Kent County councillor says this: “The extreme wet weather will cause potholes and we have geared up to tackle this, making permanent, first-time fixes as the first choice repair process.” Must be nice — if all we had to worry about was the extreme wet weather as cause of the potholes, we’d be on easy street, no pun intended. Instead we have to worry about extreme wet weather followed by extremely cold weather. That situation doesn’t just create potholes, it creates rift valleys. This, coupled with the fact that Cranbrook (B.C.) is one of the last great towns to be built on a swamp, replete with underground streams makes us the frost Barry galore, heave capital of the westCoulter ern world, which is the real reason, I swear, that horses no longer patrol our streets. Don’t want them stepping in our potholes and breaking their legs, innit? The aforementioned parish councillor says: “The lanes around here are very thin so when the water comes down, it breaks up the road.” Really? Your quaint, delicate little streets break apart under a little rain? Our tough, hardy western streets are torn asunder by the kind of frost heave that flings up mountain ranges. That’s what created the Rocky Mountains, you know. Frost heave! I swear it’s true! Workmen from Kent Highways have been working to repair damage caused to roads in Cranbrook, Kent. The mayor of Cranbrook, B.C., said at the RDEK meeting Friday that workmen from Cranbrook (B.C.) spent as much time last winter repairing potholes as they did removing snow from our very unKentish streets. The Kentish councillor said this: “On occasion we will make a temporary repair until a permanent one can be programmed

in. We are committed to repairing these within 28 days.” Ha ha! “Permanent…” Last year I noted a very bad pothole in a Cranbrook, B.C., neighbourhood. The City came out and repaired it right away — including a full-on repatch. A few months later, a new pothole had appeared, in a different spot of the intersection, like a bad case of eczema re-erupting on a troubled patch of skin. Trisha Fermor of Wilsley Pound says: “The problem lies with Kent County Council not having enough money. Cuts have meant they just don’t have the resources to patch up the roads.” Hmmm, where have I heard that before? But since the subject has come up, I will publicly suggest here that a far more efficient use of the money spent patching up roads in Cranbrook, B.C., may be to invest in an inventory of flying cars, which could be sold to the residents of Cranbrook at cost, thus taking everyone’s minds off the Cranbrook potholes fully, completely. As for the residents of Cranbrook, Kent; if you’re not amenable to the idea of flying cars, or potholes as a rather permanent state of affairs — indeed, something to hold up as an emblem of civic pride, as I am attempting to do here, with varying degrees of success, I think — or a symbol of the awesome power of nature over which no amount of county funds can permanently fix, then I suggest replacing your community’s horses with more surefooted mules. Or, to put the above 700 words another way: Potholes? You call those potholes?

KIMBERLEY DYNAMITERS

Nitros heat up, beat Rockies 4-1 TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

After the flu decimated the Dynamiters over their weekend road trip, the team got enough healthy bodies back in the lineup to grind out a 4-1 win over the Columbia Valley Rockies on Tuesday night on home ice. Jason Richter, Darren Martin, Bryce Perpelitz and Eric Buckley provided offence for the Nitros, while Stephen Pratt scored the lone goal for the Rockies.

“In the first period, we kind of had tired legs, but as the game wore on, I thought, definitely, our conditioning outmatched CV’s for sure,” said Martin, the Dynamiters captain. In the second half of the first period, Buckley struck first on a breakaway, beating Rockies goaltender Stewart Pratt up high on the glove side with a shot. Heading into the second period, the Nitros were the first to kick off the parade to the penalty box. Tyler Kinnon was hit with a four-minute double

minor and Jared Marchi got tagged for goaltender interference, and the Rockies were gifted with a two-man advantage for just over three minutes. Stephen Pratt made good on the ensuing powerplay, scoring Columbia Valley’s lone goal to even it up at 1-1. However, the tide began to change and soon it was the Rockies who were heading to the box and the Nitros made them pay when Perpelitz teed up from the blue line and blasted a slap shot home. A few minutes later, Columbia Valley’s goaltender Stewart Pratt went down with a Nitro player on top of him. The goalie landed a couple blows with his blocker before getting hit with a match penalty and game misconduct. Martin quarterbacked the powerplay and was rewarded with a goal when he unloaded on the net at the blue line. “I think our puck retrieval was good and we had some good shots,” said Dynamiters head coach Jerry Bancks, on the effectiveness of the powerplay. “Perp’s goal was just a rocket, Marty’s was a rocket. “We need to do more of that—score from the point on the powerplay. We’re afraid to shoot, I

Richter scored on another Nitro man-advantage for a three goal lead with just over five minutes remaining in the game.

Tyson Brouwer stood in goal for the Dynamiters, making 31 saves for the win, while Pratt and Brody Nelson shared netminding duties, with 27 collective saves. Having a mostly healthy roster was a welcome change for the team after hitting the road this past weekend with a busload of sick players. “It meant a lot to have most of our play-

ers back, we still have a couple out—and we still had some playing, they’re not 100 per cent,” said Bancks. “…It’s going to be nice to get everybody healthy. We need to get through this weekend, then we’re back to our normal schedule. “You can tell we’ve only practiced twice since Christmas. We were pretty sloppy. It was an ugly win, but we’ll take it.”

Five Ice players crack NHL scouting rankings TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Five members of the Kootenay Ice made the mid-season NHL Central Scouting rankings released on Monday, with Sam Reinhart occupying the highest spot at fourth overall of the North American skaters category. The Kootenay Ice captain was surpassed only by Sam Bennett (Kingston Frontenacs, OHL), Leon Draisaitl (Prince Albert Raiders, WHL) and Aaron Ekblad (Barrie Colts, OHL). Reinhart is currently in Calgary, where he will showcase his skills in front of NHL brass at the CHL BMO Top Prospects game on Wednesday evening. Reinhart was named captain of Team Cherry while Ekblad will

lead Team Orr in a game that features the best talent across the CHL. While it’s no surprise that Reinhart is in the top of the Central Scouting rankings, other Kootenay Ice players have also made the scouts sit up and take notice. Import defenceman Rinat Valiev, who cracked the same lists last season, was ranked 106th, while Jaedon Descheneau and Luke Philp were separated by only three at 122nd and 125th, respectively. Despite his long-term injury, Tanner Faith still has some NHL interest under the Limited Viewing category, joining other injured players such as Joe Hicketts (Victoria Royals) and Taylor Vickerman (TriCity Americans).

Valiev has been a solid addition to the blue line since his arrival in October, where he’s contributed three goals and collected 13 assists. Valiev, who attended an NHL camp with the Dallas Stars in September, adds some size to the blue line and has settled into a steady role with the team. Descheneau leads the Ice in goal production at 28, and sits in sixth place in the WHL scoring race with 57 points. “Yesterday morning, I didn’t even know the rankings were coming out,” said Descheneau. “It’s nice and an honour, now I just have to play well and move myself up in the rankings.” Philp agreed, noting it was the first time he’s cracked the Central Scouting lists.

He has had a solid season, stepping up to the top line while Reinhart left for the World Junior Championship. Philp has tallied 15 goals and 29 assists for 44 points this season, needing only one more to surpass his 2012-13 total. “All in all, I’m just happy to see that my name was on the list and happy for the other guys who where named, too,” Philp said. Even though they’re all happy to see themselves individually ranked, there is still a lot of work to be done as a team leading up and into playoffs. “I’m just worried about the team here and going far in the playoffs and whatever happens on draft day, happens,” said Descheneau.

Raonic advances to second round at Australian Open

MELBOURNE, Australia - Milos Raonic began his Australian Open with a 7-6 (2), 6-1, 4-6, 6-2 defeat of Spain’s Daniel Gimeno-Traver on Tuesday to reach the second round in sweltering temperatures. Raonic, the 11th seed from Thornhill, Ont., was tested for nearly two and a half hours in the demanding heat that hovered just above 40 C. The heat was even too much for one of the ball kids, who had to leave the court in the middle of the match. Raonic finally put away the victory on his fifth match point against an opponent ranked 77th in a first-time meeting. Canadian qualifier Frank Dancevic felt the heat as he was treated on court trailing 4-2 in the second set before eventually going down to France’s Benoit Paire 7-6 (14-12), 6-3, 6-4. Dancevic said he started feeling faint and was stretched out on court with a doctor, trainers and ambulance personnel in attendance. But the Niagara Falls, Ont., native recovered and soldiered on, wisely donning a white cap and finishing the match. Raonic took the victory with 21 aces, striking 48 winners and breaking on 7-of-20 chances. The 23-year-old was frustrated as he tried to close out the contest but finally got the job done when he broke the Spaniard’s serve. He’ll join compatriots Eugenie Bouchard, from Montreal, and Vancouver’s Vasek Pospisil, who won their first-round matches on Monday. Canadian Press

Canada’s cross-country skiers on track to make the podium at Sochi Games

CALGARY - Canada’s cross-country ski team is poised to make Olympic history next month. While Canadian women have stood on the Olympic podium in the sport, a Canadian man never has. Led by Alex Harvey of St-Ferreol-les-Neiges, Que., and Devon Kershaw of Sudbury, Ont., that drought could end on the Psekhako Ridge in Sochi, Russia. The hard goal of Canada’s cross-country team is to claim at least two medals in Sochi. It’s the men who have the best chance at winning them this time. The 11 skiers who’ll represent Canada in Sochi were introduced Tuesday at an elementary school with six being present for the announcement. Harvey, Kershaw, Ivan Babikov of Canmore, Alta., Daria Gaiazova of Banff, Alta., and Perianne Jones of Almonte, Ont., were in Europe and en route to a World Cup event in Poland. Chandra Crawford and Jesse Cockney of Canmore, Toronto’s Lenny Valjas, Graeme Killick of Fort McMurray, Alta., Heidi Widmer of Banff and Emily Nishikawa of Whitehorse will join their teammates in Italy next week for pre-Games training.

You might feel as if you must act a certain way, and you could be irritated to be in that position right now. Do not fight the inevitable. You’ll want to balance the different aspects of your life. Tonight: Out till the wee hours. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Your sense of what to do might involve testing out your ideas on someone who is more knowledgeable than you on the topic. On some level, you could discover how easily irritated this makes you feel. Walk away from a difficult or volatile situation. Tonight: Go with the flow. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Relate to a partner or key associate directly in order to avoid a volatile situation. A friend still might be less than agreeable because of a sudden change of plans. Make a point not to lose your temper, and you will be OK. Tonight: Togetherness is the theme. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Avoid a potentially touchy situation by deferring to others. Consider what is more important: keeping the peace or being

right. Demonstrate compassion toward a partner or loved one. This person could be feeling insecure with today’s Full Moon. Tonight: Sort through ideas. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Someone could take advantage of your caring nature. You might feel hurt, or perhaps you’ll just feel sorry for this person. In any case, pull back and be more discriminating when it comes to your inner circle of friends. Tonight: Head home, and squeeze in some exercise. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You might feel pulled in two different directions. Your friends really enjoy having you around, yet a child or loved one could express some neediness. You likely will try to juggle all of these concerns. As a result, a partner could become impatient. Tonight: Take a midweek break.

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I’m a divorced woman who was married to a self-centered man for 30 years. He often told me that if I thought there was something better out there to not let the door hit me on the way out. I finally took him up on it, and it turned out to be the best advice he ever gave me. For the past three years, I’ve been dating “Ted,” also divorced. He is smart and successful, and we are perfect together in every way. Here is the problem: Ted is not ready to marry. He told me his marriage ended because there was no passion. He fears if we live together, the physical attraction we feel for each other will die. Ted and I spend weekends together and travel often, but then he goes home to his house. I don’t want to live alone for the rest of my life. But if Ted isn’t ready after three years, I doubt he ever will be. His reluctance hurts me deeply and brings back all those feelings of unworthiness from my marriage. Is it time for me to walk? -- Thought I’d Found the One Dear Thought: Ted may be skittish about commitment, but that is his issue, and he is making it yours. Some women are perfectly content with a no-strings relationship with someone they find compatible. But if you are looking for marriage, you will have to set Ted free and look elsewhere. We realize you have put a lot of effort, energy and emotion into this relationship, but if the end result makes you unhappy and anxious, Ted is not the right person for you. Dear Annie: I must reply to all the mothers-in-law who write to you and can’t understand why they are treated so unfairly by their daughters-in-law. My mother-in-law has been incredibly mean to me from the first time I met her. She deliberately does not include me in many of the family functions. She promises my children outings and never follows through. She and her daughter have been the nightmares of my life. This has gone on for years now, and I would rather not have any contact with them. My husband feels I should “be the better person” and just ignore their behavior. But, Annie, I can only do this for so long before the better course is to simply walk away. -- The Other Side of the Story Dear Other Side: Has your husband stood up for you with his family? Does he say, “My wife must be invited to these family functions, or I will not attend”? Does he tell his mother that the children no longer believe her promises and it hurts her relationship with them? If he thinks sweeping Mom’s behavior under the rug will make things better, he is mistaken. It is cowardly. Mom will learn to respect you as a member of her family if her son makes it clear to her that this is not optional and there are clear consequences. We cannot guarantee that she will change her tune, but we can absolutely assure you that if your husband does not do these things, nothing will ever improve and you are right to limit contact. Dear Annie: “Tired of Doing All the Holiday Planning” said she is going to stop hosting family holiday dinners because no one helps her clean up. In our home and those of our friends, the cook does not clean up. Everyone else does. “Tired” should tell her kids and grandkids to clear, wash, dry and put the dishes away. If Dad is in the picture, he should pitch in, too. Some of my fondest times involve the camaraderie when my buddies and I clean up after one of our wives’ meals. (We are lousy cooks.) Guys need to get with the program and show their wives they appreciate the effort of putting the meal together. -- Helpful Husband Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service. Condolences for the family can be offered at: www.mcphersonfh.com

Anne Wiens 1928 - 2014 Mrs. Anne Wiens (nee Schellenberg) of Cranbrook, BC, passed away peacefully on Friday, January 10, 2014 surrounded by her loving family at the age of 85.

Ph: 250.426.6006 Fx: 250.426.6005 2104D 2nd Street S. Cranbrook, BC theďŹ&#x201A;owerpot@shaw.ca

Anne was born in Dundurn, Saskatchewan on December 10th, 1928, and grew up on the family farm near Coaldale, AB. Her faith in the Lord led her to attend Mennonite Bible Institute in Didsbury, AB where she forged many lifelong friendships. She later met the love of her life, Henry Wiens, while working in Calgary, and they married in 1952. Henry & Anne were soon blessed with 3 children before finally moving to Cranbrook in 1967, where their 4th child was born. Anne adored being a wife, mother and homemaker. She possessed a simple and joyful grace that seemed to bring out the best in everyone, in every situation. Her bubbly laugh and sense of humour was always uplifting, and her steadfast faith in her Savior Jesus Christ was an inspiration to all who knew her. Anne was avid bowler in the local womensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; league for many years. She enjoyed travelling, gardening, sewing, knitting, reading, and going for coffee with her many friends. Since moving to Cranbrook, Henry & Anne have been active members of First Baptist Church, and later, the Knox Presbyterian Church. She loved to sing and was active in the church choir up until her passing. She is survived by her loving husband Henry, her four children Dan (Charlene) of Surrey, BC, Dyan (Ken) Thayer of Spokane, WA, Donna (Greg) Pascuzzo and Jamie of Cranbrook; her five grandchildren, Jenny (Marco) Guzzo, Sarah Maglio, Jake Whiteley, Jeff and Brock Pascuzzo; and her brother John Schellenberg of Calgary, AB. A memorial service will be held at Knox Presbyterian Church on Saturday, January 18th at 11:00 am. In lieu of flowers, those wishing to remember Anne in a special way may do so with donations to the Mennonite Central Committee at: MCCBC, Box 2038, Abbotsford, BC, V2T 3T8. Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service. Condolences for the family can be offered at: www.mcphersonfh.com

That means your business is more likely to be on their minds when they’re in the market for related products or services. When it comes to spending your advertising dollars, make the choice that’s tried and true: newspaper advertising works harder for you.

Heid Out hosts MasterChef party Cranbrook MasterChef contestant Danielle Cardozo will be joined by Calgary celebrity foodies at local event on Jan. 20

Cranbrook’s very own MasterChef Canada contestant Danielle Cardozo is hosting a viewing party for the series’ first episode on Monday, Jan. 20 at the Heid Out Restaurant and Brewhouse. Cardozo, who works as a sous chef at the Heid Out, has made the Top 50 and will appear in at least the opening episodes of the new Canadian series, which will air on CTV. After deciding to watch the first episodes at the Heid Out with friends and family, Cardozo thought she would take it one step further and invite Cranbrook to join in for a viewing party. “I knew I was going to be serving my signature dish to the public at some point, as a feature menu item. So I thought, why not serve it up during show?” said Cardozo. Her boss, Heid Out co-owner Heidi Romich, agreed to have the restaurant host the viewing party. “I talked to Heidi about airing the show at the restaurant that week and she was on board. Heidi is a forward-thinking business owner and is really looking at moving forward in the food scene. We thought this would be a great opportunity to try out some dishes

that might be new to her patrons.” For the viewing party, the Heid Out will serve the dish that Cardozo makes on the show: a pan-seared miso-glazed rainbow trout, served with ponzu mushrooms and citrus miso broth. “I’m looking forward to serving it at the Heid Out on the 20th,” she said. Because Cardozo plans to watch the show herself that night, she will prepare the Heid Out’s chefs the day before to serve the dish on Monday. “Though you can guarantee I will be in and out of the kitchen ensuring the dish is just so,” she added. “I’m a bit picky and controlling when it comes to putting my name on dish.” Everyone who attends the viewing party will also be treated to an “amuse bouche” when they walk through the door. “Amuse bouche literally means mouth amuser. It is a bite-size sample of creation made by the chef. So each Monday that we air the show, customers will be treated to a small sample of a future dish we are interested in introducing onto the menu or as a feature dish.” Cardozo has arranged for two celebrity foodies from Calgary to

on Global Television. Cardozo said she met Clapson when she auditioned for MasterChef in Canada. He was also auditioning, but didn’t make the top 50. “I am pretty confidant it’s not because of lack of personality or

cooking ability. I think he was just a little too connected to the food scene,” said Cardozo. She met Shaften through Clapson. The pair are best friends. “I got to know Chris as he told me all about his Top Chef Canada

experience. It was nice to listen to someone talk about an experience that I could relate to,” she said. “I am constantly going to each of them for culinary, promotional, and career advice. They’re exceptionally

supportive. And they’re really just nice guys.” The Heid Out will host a MasterChef Canada season one premiere viewing party on Monday, Jan. 20 at 6 p.m. To make a reservation, phone 250-4267922.

National lab to study virus isolated from fatal H5N1 case Helen Branswell Canadian Press

TORONTO — Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory has isolated live H5N1 virus from respiratory specimens taken from an Alberta woman who died recently from infection with that bird flu virus. The Winnipeg-based lab is working in collaboration

with Alberta’s provincial laboratory to sequence the entire genome of the virus, which the woman is believed to have contracted during a three-week trip to China in December. The woman was unwell on her return trip on Dec. 27, was hospitalized Jan. 1 and died Jan. 3. This is the first time an

H5N1 infection has been detected in North America. Isolating the virus allows the national lab to do research on this H5N1. In an emailed response to questions, officials at the Winnipeg lab say copies of the virus will be shared with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, which is part of the World Health Organiza-

tion’s network of influenza reference laboratories. They also say the full genetic blueprint of the virus will be entered into GISAID, an online influenza database accessible to flu researchers from around the globe. Canadian and Alberta health officials have been working with authorities

from China and from the WHO to try to figure out how the Alberta woman became infected with H5N1. The woman was a nurse from Red Deer who was originally from China. She travelled there with her mother. The pair spent their entire vacation in Beijing and reportedly did not visit poultry markets or have ex-

posure to poultry while there. While H5N1 is considered to be endemic in China, there have been few recent reports of it there and none from Beijing. That fact, along with the woman’s apparent lack of exposure to poultry, leaves authorities puzzled as to how she was exposed.
