SKY OF BLUE, SEA OF GREEN: The flocks of Cranbrook are feeling fine these days, thank you very much. The weather is balmy and wet, and life is good down by Joseph Creek. This particular mega-flock is ruling the roost down by the Tamarack Centre, guarding the access across the creek to Willowbrook and Joseph Creek village.

Koocanusa issues to the fore Governments to look into recreational issues at reservoir SALLY MACDONALD Townsman Staff

Problems with recreational use of Koocanusa will be looked into more deeply during a new “scoping exercise”. The Regional District of East Kootenay, relevant B.C. government ministries and Columbia Basin Trust will work together to identify priority issues on Crown land in the area around Koocanusa reservoir. Area B Director Heath Slee

told the RDEK board on Friday, Feb. 14 that he and board chair Rob Gay met in January with Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett and Steve Thomson, Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, “to have a discussion about some of the many issues that have been raised about concerns on Lake Koocanusa, whether that’s unregulated ATV traffic or partying or litter on the landscape and the impact that it’s having on that

natural resource and the importance of putting some resources towards promoting some of these activities,” Slee said. Columbia Basin Trust has agreed to fund the scoping exercise. A consultant will be hired to analyze issues such as recreational camping, off-road vehicle use, and compliance and enforcement on Crown land.

See a doctor online

B.C. company launches service that connects patients to doctors online, with or without a regular GP SALLY MACDONALD Townsman Staff

East Kootenay patients can now see a doctor online from home, even if they don’t have a family doctor, with a new service that has launched in B.C. Medeo is a virtual health care service that launched last January and already has 10,000 patients and 350 family doctors and specialists signed up. Using a computer, tablet or smart phone with wifi or high-speed inter-

net access, patients with a valid B.C. Care Card can log in to Medeo and ask to see a doctor. A coordinator video-calls the patient to confirm technology is working properly and to ask the patient to name a lab and pharmacy. If the patient’s regular family doctor is registered with the service, the patient will be connected to their own doctor at a scheduled time.

Elkford Mayor Dean McKerracher (left) has been re-elected as Acting Chair of the Kootenay East Regional Hospital District board for a third term, and John Kettle (right) has been re-elected as Chair for the seventh year.

For the seventh year, the Kootenay East Regional Hospital District Board has re-elected John Kettle as Chair. “I am grateful for the continued support of this Board and look forward to continuing to build on our positive relationship with Interior Health in the coming year,” said Kettle. “Last year at this time, we were advocating for a new Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for the East Kootenay Regional Hospital. Today that project is a reality and I look forward to seeing construction get underway in the coming months.” The KERHD has committed $8 million to the ICU project, which represents 40 per cent of the project cost. Elkford Mayor Dean

McKerracher has been re-elected as Acting Chair for a third term. “I’ve learned a lot over the past two years and would like to thank the board once again for its support and confidence in my abilities,” said McKerracher. The Kootenay East Regional Hospital District provides up to 40 per cent capital funding for acute care facilities in the region for equipment and facility construction and renovation. The Hospital District extends beyond the boundaries of the RDEK to include the Towns of Golden and Creston, and the portions of the Regional Districts of Central Kootenay and Columbia Shuswap surrounding those municipalities.

City councillor from Lethbridge killed in avalanche while snowboarding C anadian Press

WATERTON, Alta. — A city councillor from southern Alberta has died in an avalanche while snowboarding. Wade Galloway, who was 37, was killed Saturday at Waterton Lakes National Park near the United States border. The City of Lethbridge says in a statement that the first-term councillor had been

with a friend when a wave of snow slid down a mountain. The friend tried to resuscitate Galloway before going for help. Searchers have not been able to recover his body because of bad weather and blowing snow. Galloway, a married father of two children, was elected to Lethbridge council last fall.

Virtual health service eases doctor shortage Continued from page 1 If not, or if the health matter is urgent, the patient can be connected to another family doctor elsewhere in B.C. There is a doctor available for about 90 per cent of Medeo’s operating hours. Any orders for lab work or prescriptions are sent to the patient’s chosen lab or pharmacy to be picked up. There is no cost for the patient, and the doctor is able to bill through the Medical Services Plan (MSP). On Friday, Feb. 14, Medeo’s vice president of physician services, Colin Meakin, spoke to the Kootenay East Regional Hospital District board of directors about the new service, which could be a solution to the General Practitioner (GP) shortage in Cranbrook. “The Kootenays are not alone in the GP

shortage issue. It rears its head in every part of B.C.,” said Meakin. “The solutions we discuss here have the potential to make a real impact for improving access to health care for everyone in B.C.” Medeo is open 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday to Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Meakin said Medeo’s end goal is to have every patient connected to a family doctor. “Medeo is a platform to assist in a stepping stone to attaching these (orphaned) patients to GPs,” he said. “Our primary role is to connect patients with their family physician but we also do offer the walk-in model as well.” Doctors on the platform are suggested to leave a block of time each week to see patients online. “That physician can

actually see more patients in that chunk of time on the Medeo platform than they can in person. It’s a much more efficient way to see a patient,” said Meakin. Patients can also be referred to see a specialist online. “We’ve actually had visits where patients see a GP in the morning, and see a dermatologist in the afternoon,” said Meakin. A B.C. company, Medeo was born out of physicians’ need to use technology to connect with patients. Doctors use Telehealth fee codes to bill MSP. Meakin said the company is also trialling a service in Richmond Hospital’s emergency room where they will have kiosks in the triage area so patients can first speak to a doctor online to find out if they need to wait at emergency. There’s another option

where the hospital’s website provides a link to Medeo on the page where the emergency room wait times are listed. “It’s a really great concept; it’s worked in the States. We are using Richmond as a test case,” said Meakin. Hospital board director Ron Toyota, mayor of Creston, said he signed up for Medeo. “I’m sitting at home at 5.30 in the afternoon, face to face with a doctor in Vancouver, and we had a 15-minute consult. It was all very smooth, very simple. For people who don’t have physicians, it’s going to be a great system,” he said. Hospital board chair John Kettle said that if Medeo can reduce the number of patients who visit the emergency room because they don’t have access to a family doctor, it will save

Heritage building renos complete Townsman Staff

The renovation projects at the Studio/Stage Door are complete, Cranbrook Community Theatre recently announced. Over the past year, the lobby of the historic Studio/Stage Door building was renovated and retrofitted. Funding totalling $35,800 from the Government of Canada’s Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund helped see the project through. The cost for the entire project totalled over $100,000. Cranbrook Community Theatre (CCT) serves as stewards of the heritage building. “I’d like to thank Minister Michelle Rempel, MP David Wilks, and the Government of Canada for believing in this project,” said Peter Schalk, Project Manager. “Thanks as well go out to general contractor Kevin Leiman of Leiman Homes, who went above and beyond to ensure the project met not only our needs but kept with the heritage aspects of the building.” The work included:

new windows, insulation, doors, and flooring, but the biggest improvement was washroom upgrading. The upgrading doubled the size of both bathrooms and has made them wheelchair accessible. The addition of these bathrooms is the second phase of CCT’s accessibility project, which started with the installation of stair glides in the fall of 2011. While work was being done on the inside of the building, the City of Cranbrook replaced the roof on the building. “Cranbrook Community Theatre is thankful to the City for taking care of the roof,” said CCT President Lor-

POLL WEEK

raine Harvey. “We are very fortunate to have such a positive relationship with the Mayor, council, and city staff who appreciate the work it takes to keep this heritage building in good shape.” With additional funding from the Columbia Basin Trust Fund (CBT), the CCT has been able to add new gutters and downspouts to the new roof. The remainder of the monies from the CBT went into the third phase of the CCT’s project, the main entrance and the upper lobby. The main entrance has been retrofitted with energy efficient doors and windows. Also, new carpeting has been in-

stalled on the stairs and in the main lobby upstairs. Originally built in 1909 as a Masonic Temple, the building was put up for sale in 1973. CCT lobbied the City of Cranbrook to purchase the building, which the Mayor and council at the time had the foresight to do. The City then turned the building over to the Cranbrook Community Theatre Society. This year marks the 40th anniversary of CCT’s stewardship of the building. A special grand re-opening ceremony will be held at the Studio/Stage Door, 11 – 11th Avenue South in downtown Cranbrook at 5 p.m., Friday, Feb. 21.

Koocanusa recreation issues getting the government scope Continued from page 1 “You’ve all heard the constant litany of concerns about issues on Lake Koocanusa, whether it’s enforcement or garbage or whatever,” said Slee. “I think we really need to take heed of this opportunity and move forward with it.” The consultant will talk to responsible agencies, residents and businesses to find the issues and identify what is preventing addressing the issue. A working group on the exercise will consist of CBT, RDEK staff, B.C. government representatives and the Ktunaxa.

“Hopefully, we are going to have some benefits that will pay off in the long term in allaying the concerns of some residents and identifying those areas of the most need. So I look forward to the results of this,” said Slee. Last summer, the RDEK board of directors expressed concerns about large music concerts taking place on Crown land around Koocanusa. At the time, Slee and Elkford Mayor Dean McKerracher said they worried that some of the less organized events were disturbing family campers.

perature is what drives the jet stream that flows along the boundary between the two air masses, a lower difference means a slower jet stream. Now, a fast jet stream travels in a pretty straight line around the planet from west to east, just like a mountain stream goes pretty straight downhill. A slower jet stream, however, meanders like a river crossing a flood plain – and the big loops it makes extend much further south and north than when it was moving fast. In a big southerly loop, you will have Arctic air much further south than usual, while there will be relatively warm air from the temperate air mass in a northerly loop that extends up into the Arctic. Moreover, the slower-moving jet stream tends to get “stuck”, so that a given kind of weather – snow, or rain, or heat – will stay longer over the same area. Hence the “polar-vortex” winter in North America this year, the record snowfalls in Japan in 2012 and again this winter, the lethal heat waves in the eastern US in 2012 – and the floods in Britain this winter. “They’ve been pummelled by storm after storm this winter (in Britain),” said Jennifer Francis at the American Association for the Advancement of Science conference in Chicago last week. “It’s been amazing what’s going on, and it’s because the pattern this winter has been stuck in one place ever since early December.” There’s no particular reason to think that it will move on soon, either.

Opinion/features Letters to the Editor

Humans/Ungulates

Dear Ms. Editor; Kudos on your fine article concerning Kimberley’s human/ungulate conflict. In particular, you highlighted the frustration of the champion, Councillor Oakley, in his efforts to protect us from the hundreds (thousands?) of rampaging homicidal mule deer (and the long boarders) in our city. Oakley is my hero; indeed so is the whole “Council.” These are all unsung heroes in my opinion. When the “Council” meets with the deer committee, it can be truthfully said to be the greatest deliberative body of intellectual souls and meeting of fine minds since my wonderful friend Charles Wormington dined alone in Aikman’s Cafe, June 26, 1977 (hot hamburger sandwich). And then, Ms. Editor, you exposed the Bylaw Officer’s effort to circumvent this Mensa level committee in their policy to control those pesky seniors who insist on feeding these criminal mule deer in their mid-starvation phase. He gives them a warning! Can you imagine? A plague on them! (Senior citizens, I mean.) Who do these people think they are? All they ever did in this mining camp was make it the nicest place on earth to live, grow up, and raise children. Haven’t they heard of the “City” edict of re-branding? Don’t they know that close to $200,000 of their tax money is going to this re-burning, renaming, reinventing scam? A $500 fine for feeding starving wildlife? It should be $5,000. Furthermore, if caught, they should be jailed and their houses and property seized. Furthermore, their pensions should be forfeited to the deer committee. Furthermore their — oh oh! I just

realized a very important fact – I’M A SENIOR! (Aged 69.) Also, I just remembered I’ve been feeding the wildlife faithfully since that horrible winter of 1989/90. OOPS! Ms. Editor, would you kindly please disregard this letter. Thanking you for your time … Dougie Johnson Kimberley

Charter of Rights

Tom Fletcher’s column “End this bloody B.C. school war” [Kootenay Advertiser, Feb, 7, 2014] demonstrates his inability to separate symptoms from the problem. The problem is the B.C. government ignoring the law, ignoring the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, preferring to dictate to British Columbians including students, taxpayers, teachers and unions. He gives two reasons why the government must appeal its loss in the recent court case won by the BC Teachers Federation. First is “practical politics.” It lets the government get by without answering questions in the Legislature, as the government can simply note, “It’s before the court.” Second is practical economics. “We can’t afford it” is political poop. His claim that “It appears to hand the BC Teachers Federation the keys to the treasury” is inflammatory nonsense—what you might expect from a political party in B.C. but not from a columnist. Minister Fassbender says 1) appeal of the B.C. court decision will protect students and taxpayers; 2) the judgment is centred on the union’s interest, not the students’ needs; and 3) the judgment is

completely unaffordable for taxpayers. [The Tyee, Feb. 4, 2014] All three are false. When a provincial government disobeys a court’s ruling on the Supreme Law of the Land — The Charter of Rights and Freedoms — we are talking about what kind of country we will live in: Under the Rule of Law or under the lawlessness of Rule by Man/Woman. Tom Fletcher [Black Press, Kootenay Advertiser, Feb. 7, 2014] demonstrates this when he writes: “This union victory began when the Supreme Court of Canada invented a constitutional right to collective bargaining in 2007 based on Freedom of Association in the Charter of Rights.” Columnist Paul Willcox pointed out the preference of MLA Pat Pimm (now Minister of Agriculture) for getting rid of the Charter of Rights: “For 99 per cent of the people out there, that document doesn’t even need to exist,” Pimm said. [“Bashing the Charter,” Cranbrook Daily Townsman, Nov. 13, 2009] Governments know best. Tearing up contracts is a bad example worthy of a Third World country, a horrible example for students. The U.S. in its Constitution [1787, Article I, Section 10] protects contracts: “No state shall pass any law impairing the obligation of contracts.” In 1810 in Fletcher v. Peck, the U.S. Supreme Court for the first time declared a state law void because it conflicted with a provision of the U.S. Constitution. When Christy Clark says the court’s decision “doesn’t reflect government’s view of the case and the facts of the case,” someone needs to inform her she is entitled to her own opinion but not her own facts.

We don’t feel you are being too picky, as your friends say. We feel that you are being cautious and you care about yourself. Your self-esteem is quite healthy and you are open but you are cautious. Listen to your gut instincts — they are right on. We did a spec on the three men that you asked us about and the first name you emailed us is definitely a cheater; the second man you listed is not a socializer at all. I think he has deep emotional issues that he needs to work on. The third man definitely drinks too much and likes to party and does not accept responsibility well. In conclusion we feel you are on the right path. You are a determined, courageous and smart young woman. Going to college and obtaining your degree is definitely the way to success. However, don’t forget while you are working and saving money, take the time to be good to you as well. Half the fun of achieving our goals on this plane is the lessons we learn and the fun we have along the way. Be patient, stay strong and listen to those “gut” feelings of yours always. Those are your guides and angels helping you on this journey. Wendy

SOCHI WINTER OLYMPIC GAMES

Canadian ice dancers Virtue and Moir win silver C ANADIAN PRESS

SOCHI, Russia - Jennifer Jones was perfect. Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir were oh so close. Shortly after Jones wrapped up a flawless round robin in women’s curling with a 9-4 win over South Korea on Monday, Virtue and Moir skated a riveting free program in the ice dance to assure Canada its 15th medal of the Sochi Olympics. But while the Canadians gave their all in their attempt to defend the ice dance gold they won at the 2010 Vancouver Games, Americans Meryl Davis and Charlie White were just as compelling in their free program. In the end the favourites from the United States took gold, while Virtue and Moir settled for silver in their Olympic swan song. “We would have liked to bring home gold for Canada but no one close to us will love us any less because we’re bringing home silver,” Virtue said. That silver gave Canada 15 medals overall (four gold, seven silver, four bronze) after Day

11 of the Sochi Games. Canada was tied for fourth with Norway, behind host Russia and the United States (18 medals each) and the Netherlands (17 medals, 16 in long-track speedskating). Germany still has the most gold medals overall with seven. Canada’s goal is to win more medals than any other country in Sochi. At least one more piece of hardware is guaranteed as the women’s hockey team got by Switzerland 3-1 to set up a gold-medal showdown with the archrival United States. Canada is going for its fourth Olympic gold medal in a row. And additional medals from Canada’s curlers are a strong possibility. Jones knew her Winnipeg rink was going to be the top-ranked team in the semifinals going into Monday’s match with South Korea, but her Winnipeg rink still put an exclamation point on its round-robin by improving to 9-0 and becoming the first women’s team to qualify for the semifinals with an

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir captured a silver medal in ice dancing at the Sochi Games on Monday. undefeated record. “In my opinion, this is one of the toughest fields that has ever been assembled for women’s curling,” Jones said. “To go through undefeated, and to go into the Olympic record books, is pretty awesome.” Edmonton’s Kevin Martin, who did it four years ago in Vancouver, is the only other curler to go through the preliminary round undefeated. Jones will face world champion Eve Muirhead and her rink from Britain in the semifinals

on Wednesday. Canada beat Britain 9-6 in the round-robin after Muirhead missed a potential game-winning shot in the final end. “Now you start fresh,” said Jones. “And everyone’s on an even record.” Brad Jacobs’ rink was idle as the men’s round-robin ended on Monday. The foursome from Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., will face surprising China in the semifinals. It was not surprising that the United States and Canada finished in the top two spots in the

ice dance. Virtue and Moir and Davis and White, who train together and share the same coach, have dominated every world championship and Olympic Games since 2010. Virtue, from London, Ont., and Moir, from Ilderton, Ont., finished with 190.99 points after collecting 114.66 in the free dance. The pair has said Sochi is their final Olympics. “This is the biggest stage in the world so, of course, it’s stressful,” said Virtue. “It’s a pretty ambitious program, and

it’s a loaded program, and I think we did it pretty well. “We felt immense pressure. We trained 17 years for this moment.” White and Davis finished first with 195.52 points, including 116.63 in the free dance, to become the first American champions ever in the event. Canada and United States will renew their rivalry in another sport when the North American foes face off Thursday in the women’s hockey gold-medal game. Canada moved to its fifth straight Olympic final with a tighter-than-expected win over Switzerland. Natalie Spooner scored twice and Melodie Daoust also beat Swiss goaltender Florence Schelling, who was otherwise spectacular with a 45-save performance. Shannon Szabados stopped 21 shots for Canada. “It’s going to be a battle,” said forward Meghan Agosta-Marciano. “It always is when we play against them. But we’ve been training

for this all year and we are prepared. It doesn’t matter what happened when we beat them in the preliminary round.” There was much discussion on the level of competition in women’s hockey after the United States trounced Sweden 6-1 in the other semifinal. But Switzerland showed the sport is growing outside North America with an admirable performance against the three-time gold medallists. “All credit to them, they really turned it on and they made us fight,” Canada forward Haley Irwin said. “They had chances and made it really tough for us tonight and Schelling obviously made some great saves and really held them in there.” Canada had another chance to add to its medal title in the twoman bobsled on Wednesday when Justin Kripps of Summerland, B.C., and Bryan Barnett of Edmonton started the fourth and final run in fourth place. But they had a bumpy ride on their final trip down the track and finished sixth.

Wild basketball teams rolling through season TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Mount Baker basketball teams have been busy over the last few weeks, heading to tournaments local and abroad. The senior boys came out of a tournament in Fernie this past weekend, pulling out a

pair of wins against Sparwood and Kimberley, with only one loss to the East Kootenay’s best out of Creston. The Mount Baker Wild fell by only one point in their first game against Creston, but rebounded with two solid wins over Sparwood Spartans and the Selkirk

Storm. Two weeks ago, the Wild were in Alberta territory, going up against some tough teams at a tournament in Calgary. Tied at halftime with a team out of Airdrie, the Wild took the foot off the gas in the third quarter which didn’t help on the way to their

first loss . The next two games, both against high school teams out of Calgary, the senior boys fell flat, according to head coach Shaun Penner. However, the final match between the Wild and the Henry Wise Wood Warriors had a little silver lining, as the

Swim club hits the water at Alberta meet TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Cranbrook Tritons Swim Club had another successful competition recently in Okotoks, with four swimmers notching personal best times and collecting points for their club. Local athletes Tyler Carter, Shelby Lehmann, Sydney McDonald and Ryan Penney , who are coached by Dave

Chisholm, all had topsix results at the meet. Next up for the club is the B.C. AA provincial championships in Chilliwack at the end of February. Penney obtained a provincial qualifying time in 50m Freestyle but was unable to qualify in a second event that is necessary to compete at the B.C. championships.

Mount Baker bench scored over 30 points to make it a competitive finish. “We step up against the best teams,” said Penner. “When we go up against teams that we know that we’re only going to win if we play our best game, those guys will go out and give their best. “We play down to weaker competition though.

“…You got to respect each and every opponent, and I don’t think that we do sometimes, so that’s our biggest area. We got to play our top game, game in and game out.” The senior girls had a tough weekend in McGrath this past weekend with three losses in three games. However, they attended the same Calgary tournament with

the boys two weeks ago, picking up a well earned win with two losses. “We won a game there and it was because we worked well together, helping with team defence and cheering from the bench, definitely,” said Heidi Anderson, a Grade 12 student on the team. “Definitely we executed our offence way better and our team defence was there.”

Argos defence takes a hit as team releases star linebacker Marcus Ball C ANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO - Another CFL player appears may be heading for a tryout in the NFL as the Toronto Argonauts announced Monday they had released linebacker Marcus Ball. It’s a big loss for Toronto’s defence. Ball had 69 tackles, four sacks and three interceptions last season.

He joined the Argos in 2012 and was part of the Grey Cup winning team, with two key interceptions in the East final. During Toronto’s entire 2012 playoff run he had a total of 15 tackles and three interceptions and was named the team’s outstanding defensive player for his efforts.

HOROSCOPES by Jacqueline Bigar

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Your sixth sense will help you sort through a higher-up’s attitude. Clearly, you do not have the whole story. Defer to someone else, and try not to worry so much about a temporary issue. Take a stand with someone who tends to be defiant. Tonight: Out and about. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Pace yourself without pressuring someone who has not given a lot of thought to a problem. You could feel as though someone is trying too hard to impress others. How you handle this person could change the balance of power. Tonight: Make time for a special person. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You will be full of fun as you seek to make a change, but a partner might not feel the same way. This person will view this adjustment more seriously. Relate to a loved one directly. A chat might not solve a problem, but it will show your compassion. Tonight:

Dinner for two. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Take an overview of your finances. You know your limits with a domestic matter. If you are not as comfortable as you would like with an investment, say “no.” Remember how intuitive you usually are, and then follow through on your gut feeling. Tonight: At home. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Your efforts will pay off, given some endurance and follow-through. A person who has been quite distant might start to open up. You could be delighted by this reversal. A family member’s serious attitude might unnerve you. Tonight: Try not to push so hard. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) In the next few weeks, you will get a read on how your year is going to go. Note what areas of your life might not be running smoothly right now. Communication could be off. If you believe someone has made an outrageous statement, speak up. Tonight: Go along with a request. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Tundra

How you get past an obstacle that seems to keep appearing will be the key to your success. You know what to do. Somehow, you’ll manage to get your way and not upset anyone in the process. You also might gain a former dissenter’s support. Tonight: Do your thing. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) The unexpected will occur, and you might be backpedaling for a while. Your response to a surprise could be more significant than you realize. Take some time to consider all the potential options before declaring what you will do. Tonight: Take some much-needed private time. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Rethink a recent decision you’ve made. The unexpected might occur with a child or loved one. Maintain a sense of humor, and don’t lose sight of your longterm goals. Your responses could be very different from what you had anticipated. Tonight: Go for the moment. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You might want to understand what is happening with some-

one you respect, as this person could be acting out of sorts. Sometimes the best approach is to be subtle while indicating that you care and are there for him or her. Tonight: In the limelight. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Your sense of direction will help you sort out an issue. The more detached you are from a complication, the more likely you are to come up with a winning solution. Problems will surface, and fortunately, they will be minor. Tonight: Opt for the most unique idea. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) The Sun moves into your sign today and energizes you. In the next few weeks, you will note a positive change in your life. Test out what seems like an incredible offer with several trusted friends. You might not be as realistic as you need to be.

ANNIE’S MAILBOX by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: My sister’s husband sexually assaulted my 18-year-old daughter while she slept on their sofa. We kept this a secret for three years, and then it finally came out. When my sister heard, she decided to protect her children from the truth about their father by “divorcing” my family so we would not reveal the secret. She claimed her husband was “blacked-out drunk” and therefore not responsible for the assault. Because there was no intent (presumably), he wasn’t at fault. That was four years ago. My sister’s sons are the same age as mine, and they used to spend many nights together. To add salt to our wounds, the rest of my family supports her decision. They no longer take my kids to her house or to her children’s birthday parties. They never tell us when my sister is at their home. They celebrate holidays with her family before visiting us. My kids and I are completely torn up over all of this and so deeply wounded, not only by the loss of my sister’s family, but also by the lack of support from the rest of them. I don’t understand how my parents and my other siblings could possibly support her decision. Are we wrong to feel betrayed and abandoned? We are about ready to wash our hands of the lot of them, although it isn’t what we want. My parents and siblings have told me that this is the “new normal” and that my family should be grateful for the times they see us instead of focusing on the times when we aren’t included. It feels as if we are being punished because my daughter’s assault was “not that bad” and she wasn’t willing to shove it under the rug for the rest of her life. -- Open for Input Dear Open: We understand that your parents and siblings don’t want to lose contact with your sister by openly supporting you. They know she would cut all of them off. Instead, this is the accommodation they have made in order to have a relationship with everyone. The real problem is that your sister and her husband refuse to address the assault, never apologized or tried to make amends, and blamed you and your daughter for bringing it up. We also don’t know whether her husband has ever dealt with his drinking, which is no excuse for attacking another person. You will not get the support you deserve from your family. Either accept what they offer or don’t. But please make sure your daughter is dealing with this in a healthy way. Contact RAINN (rainn.org) for information and help. Dear Annie: My in-laws, whom I adore, do not have soap in their bathrooms. My husband and I take soap when we go to visit, but that doesn’t change the fact that no one else washes their hands after using the restroom. They then proceed to prepare meals that we are supposed to eat. We have tried sending decorative soap dispensers and asking “Where’s the soap?” but nothing changes. -- Clean Freak Dear Clean: Everyone should wash with soap and water after using the bathroom and especially before preparing food. It helps prevent the spread of germs, some of which can be quite harmful. Have you asked your in-laws why they don’t wash properly? If nothing changes, send them this letter and tell them that Annie says they need to use soap before someone gets sick, fer cryin’ out loud. Dear Annie: Kudos to “Tapped Out” for complaining about checkout line panhandling. It’s happening nearly everywhere. Why should I have to deal with solicitors when I just want to buy a hamburger? Management may think it makes their companies look good, but it causes me to go elsewhere until the campaign is over. -- Already Give 15 Percent to Charity Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

SERVICES GUIDE Contact these business for all your service needs!

Want to reach new customers? We read the newspaper every day, Monday to Friday.

Top Ten Reasons to Advertise in a Newspaper 1. Advertise to Reach New Customers. Your market changes constantly. Advertising is tremendously helpful in directing customers to the product and services they need, and helps put you ahead of your competition.

2. Your Competition Isn’t Quitting. You’ve got to advertise to get your share of business or lose it to the stores that do. If you cut back on your advertising, you may forfeit new prospective customers to your competition.

3. Advantage Over Competitors Who Cut Back. A five year survey of more than 3,000 companies found that advertisers who maintained or expanded advertising during a troubled economy saw sales increase an average of 100%.

4. Continuous Advertising Strengthens Your Image. To advertise using our “SERVICES GUIDE” in the Cranbrook Daily Townsman, Kimberley Daily Bulletin and The Valley, call us at 250-426-5201, ext. 202. BEAR NECESSITIES

ewspapers are not a medium but media available for everyone whenever they want it. They are growing and evolving to meet the consumer’s interests and lifestyles and incorporating the latest technological developments. This is certainly great for readers and advertisers. SOURCE: NADBANK JOURNAL SEPT/08

When people who postpone buying come back to the marketplace, you’ve got a better chance of getting their business if you’ve continued to maintain a solid, reliable image.

5. Direct Advertising is Cost Efficient. Direct has the advantages – demographic and geographic numbers to afford advertisers the best value and exposure for their advertising dollar.

6. Advertise to Generate Traffic. Continuous traffic is the first step toward sales increases and expanding your base of buyers. The more people who contact you, the more possibilities you have to make sales.

7. Advertise to Make More Sales. Advertising works! Businesses that succeed are usually strong, steady advertisers. Look around. You’ll find the most aggressive and consistent advertisers are almost invariably the most successful.

8. Advertise Because There is Always Business to Generate. Salespeople are on the payroll. As long as you’re in business, you have overhead and you’ve got to advertise to generate a steady cash flow.

9. Advertise to Keep a Healthy Positive Image. In a troubled economy, rumors and bad news travel fast. Advertising corrects gossip, shoots down false reports and projects positively.

10. Advertise to Maintain Employee Morale. When advertising and promotion are cut, salespeople become less motivated. They may believe the store is cutting back, even going out of business.
