PHOTO COURTESY OF MAYHEM IN THE PLATZL
You don’t often seen a boarder riding a rail down Deer Park Avenue, but last Saturday night’s Mayhem in the Platzl changed all that. A hugely successful evening, Mayhem featured skiers and boarders competing in a rail jam, DJ music, light show and a fashion show. See more photos, page A5.
Mayhem in the Platzl a huge success Hitting just the right note; Mayhem brings Platzl alive C AROLYN GR ANT email@example.com
For years, in fact since the once hugely popular WinterFest died, the search has been on for an event that would bring people to Kimberley’s Platzl in the winter. Events have been tried, but nothing stuck
— nothing hit just the right note and attracted the right amount of people. Until Mayhem in the Platzl. Last Saturday night, the Platzl was jammed with people, all taking in
the rail jam. Organizers say the energy was unparalleled, as DJ music, a light show, a rail jam and a fashion show combined to bring more people out on a winter’s evening than have

Macdonald on budget C AROLYN GR ANT firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s the average family who will be affected negatively by the new budget brought down this week by the BC Liberal provincial government, says Columbia River-Revelstoke MLA Norm Macdonald (NDP). “There’s more dam-
age in it than one would imagine,” he said. “Firstly, they made a big deal of new health spending. But the fact is that the spending won’t meet upcoming cost pressures. It will be A constraint on a more and more constrained service.” Macdonald says there are costs for fami-
lies and overall cuts to services all through the budget. “There’s another Medical Services Premium increase, a Hydro increase, we know ICBC rates are going to go up, tuition fees are going up. All of these will impact families negatively.” See Page A4
Mayhem a huge success From Page A1 Presented by The Choice and Commit, Mayhem was all about showcasing Kimberley’s mountain culture and came together with a huge volunteer effort, great sponsor support and help from the City. Snow was moved and contoured, rails were built and for one evening there was skiing and boarding downtown. The Choice’s team snowboarder Anson won the First Annual Mayhem Rail Jam Cup. Stop by the Choice’s shop to see the cup, where it will be on display for the next year. Organizers are grateful for the wide community support. “Tons of prizes were handed out thanks to the Choice, Commit, Kootenay Mountain
Works, Teck,Chalet GM and My Signs,” read a post-event press release. “Adam Laurin owner of Commit, was on hand for announcing, as well as Ciaran Plant for the singing of O’Canada. “King’s Cat General Contractor’s very skillful Bobcat operator Peter Hill helped move snow in creation and clean up of the rail jam. “Support also came from the Summit Fund, a community program run by Kimberley Alpine Resort, as well as Invest Kootenay, CBT, and Teck. Mayhem was very lucky to have the expertise and hard work of Myc Pakula and Luke Meeds on site to design and build the course, especially during one of the busiest days of the year for the Resort.
John Haner, Lisa Smith and Nancy Ricketts on hand with First Aid was a huge contribution, and Cara Wiseman and her team setting up light and sound with Ray’s Music. “The City of Kimberley and Rockies Law Corporation’s in kind support was above and beyond. From waivers to dump trucks full of snow, this event was made possible with their support. “Tourism Kimberley provided the professional support cinematographer and lighting designer Courtney Forester. “Rail features were made possible by the support of Tyee Log Homes, Fabrite, and Meadowbrook Motors. “Transportation to and from the event was supplied by Simply
Kimberley. The evening concluded with Fashion Mayhem, which was a great success and display of Kimberley’s fashion. Organizers thank El Chupcabra, Leaf Boutique db Natural Attractions, Hands on evolution, Divine Designs, Root for Me fand Back on the Rack for showing beautiful outfits. Grubstake provided fuel for volunteers with a delicious pizza lunch during the set up. With such great success another rail jam next year is a given.

Senior’s Lifestyle Community Keeps Winter at Bay Life in winter can be daunting for seniors. The cold temperatures can make the simplest of tasks much more difficult. Chores like shoveling the drive-way or picking up groceries can turn into momentous tasks. Ice and snow represent real physical dangers that can not only cause a nasty fall but also get in the way of activities outside the house. There is always the worry of a broken or failing heating system that can result in all manner of bills and troubles, adding more unnecessary stress. Combine these stresses and it may lower quality of life, causing family members endless worry. Fortunately retirement housing at Garden View Village can provide plenty of peace of mind for both the residents and the family members, with apartments designed to take the worry out of winter. Not only are the studio, one and two-bedroom suites appointed for comfort and independence but also include many key features to help with each resident’s individual wants and needs. Independent heat and airconditioning controls allow them to set the apartments temperature to whatever will be most comfortable for them. Full kitchens and large wheelchair accessible bathrooms can help residents maintain their independence while weekly housekeeping services and 24-hour assistance is available for complete peace of mind. Since the Village boasts many leisure opportunities, residents don’t have to worry about braving the harsh winter weather in search of relaxation and fun. Just outside of their front door they will find many amenities such as a games room, library, and spa, as well as many lounge areas which are certain to be filled with friendly
faces and familiar smiles. There are also special recreational and social activities such as live entertainment, exercise programs and excursions to local attractions, which are all covered in the affordable monthly rent. Also included in the rent are the delicious meals which are prepared by the on-site chef in the warm central dining room where residents can enjoy meals next to a cozy fireplace where friends and family are always welcome to join. Garden View Village also understands just how much pets are a part of the family. Residents are encouraged to share their apartments with their companions in the totally pet friendly building. With all of these wonderful features the Village relieves worries not only for residents but also for family members. “I had the best winter last year because I live three hours away and didn’t have to worry about my mom being alone.” said Linda Frew, whose mother is a resident at the Golden Life location in Kimberley. “I have total peace of mind knowing there is staff on site 24 hours a day, that she has company for dinner every night, and she is being well cared for. But most of all I have peace of mind knowing she is very happy.” No longer should seniors have to worry about shoveling the walkway or what they’ll do should a maintenance emergency befall them. Cold weather is no reason that seniors shouldn’t be free to enjoy the many activities, freedoms, and quality of life. Garden View Village provides just that and much, much more. Open daily; call Garden View Village at (250) 427-4014 for more information or to book a tour.

Internationally renowned choral director comes to Kimberley For the Bulletin
Sarona Mynhardt, Director of the White Rock Children’s Choir, clinician, and performer, is coming to Kimberley this weekend to work the Selkirk Concert Choir for three days. Mynhardt was born and raised in South Africa. Her formal voice training culminated in postgraduate work at the Conservatory of Music at North-WestUniversity in Potchefstroom. Her early singing career included membership in professional children’s and youth choirs, and later extended to include roles in Musicals, Operettas, and solo recitals. The Selkirk Choir has had a busy season so far, and will be performing with Mynhardt on Saturday, February 22nd, at 7 p.m., at the McKim Theatre. Mynhardt will be leading the Choir in a set focusing on African music. The students are incredibly excited to be working with such an outstanding clinician and educator, and are looking forward to learning a lot from her. Courtney Crawford, soprano with the Selkirk Choir, says, “Mr. Heyde has raved about Sarona all year, and we can’t wait to meet her and have a chance to focus on our singing for three days straight.” Other upcoming events for the Selkirk Music program include a Choral Night with the Kimberley Community Choir at 7:30 pm on Wednesday, March 5th at McKim Theatre, a Band Night with the Kimberley Community Band at 7:30 pm on April 17th at McKim Theatre, and a trip to Calgary to hear the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra perform on May 1st. The CPO will be performing Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, as well as the world premier of a commission from Vancouver composer Dr. Steven Chatman. Sarona Mynhardt will be working with the Selkirk Secondary School Concert Choir from Thursday to Saturday this week, and they very much hope to see a full house for their performance under her direction at 7 p.m. on Saturday, February 22nd, at McKim Theatre.
Macdonald on budget From Page A3 Macdonald says that while the BC Liberals make much of revenue coming from LNG, there really isn’t anything there in the foreseeable future. “We were promised a tax structure around LNG a year ago. Then we were promised it for this session. Now it’s some time in the future. The whole LNG process the Premier is making so much of is well off the rails. It will be difficult to square the revenue promises to promises made to industry about the lowest taxes in North America. There’s no income from LNG for the next three years. The plant that was supposed to be up by 2015 is just not happening.” In fact, Macdonald said, many promises made by the BC Liberal government are just not coming through.
“In the Throne Speech they talked about skills training, then in the budget they cut skills training. They can’t even keep a promise for a week.” “What is truly disturbing about this government’s record on financial matters is that we have skyrocketing debt, and very little to show for it. Health and education services are being cut due to a lack of funding,” continued Macdonald. “And now, due to more than a decade of government interference, Crown Corporations that have traditionally operated with significant surpluses are struggling to stay afloat. “This budget is a classic example of mismanagement of the province’s resources — taxpayers’ get less while paying much, much more.”

South Star’s mysterious Escher Trail I want you all to know: This winter I have taken up cross-country skiing, a sport that seems to fit my budget, temperament and relative degree of conditioning. Yes, I got some skis, and when winter hit I immediately headed out to the fabulous, fantastic, famous South Star Trails in the mysterious hills south of Cranbrook. The South Star Trails, at the base of Cranbrook Mountain, are a local paradise for recreationalists — endless kilometres of trails, spread out over an immeasurable area of light forest, all kept in pristine condition by local volunteers. Skiers head out into its vastness and disappear from each other for hours, re-emerging later in the parking lot at the end of 38th Street, refreshed like they’ve had some communion with the wild gods of the East Kootenay mountain wilderness. In my first outings, I kept to the easy trails, like “Easy Street.” But the other day, hypnotized by the stillness and the swish of the skis, I lost track of where I was. When I “came too,” I found that I was not only quite tired, but I was on one of the tougher, “black diamond” trails — I wasn’t quite sure where. I tried to turn around, tripped over my skis and fell over. I then had the devil of a time trying to get back up, flailing around like some giant overturned beetle in the snow. To my relief, a skier came schussing up out of the lightly falling snow. He stopped, offered his arm, and I was able to finally pull myself back to my feet. I leaned on my poles, gasping. “Say, you look like you could use a breather,” he said. I nodded. “I’d love a bench,” I panted. He looked around over both his shoulders, as if to check that no one was there. “Listen,” he said. “Don’t tell anyone I told
you this, but head that way for 20 metres, take a right, go another 20 metres, take a left, then follow the S-shaped trail for yet another 20 metres, hang another left, and ski the trail you find there for a while. When you feel better, just ski back to the start of that trail and follow your nose out to the parking Barry lot. remember, don’t Coulter tell“And anyone where you heard about it.” The skier then schussed away into the lightly falling snow. So I did it. I skied 20 metres, hung a roscoe, another 20 metres, hung a louie, then another louie, and found myself in front of a sign that said “Escher Trail (volunteers only).” I started down this trail. Escher Trail had a gentle downhill slope that seemed to go on for miles, twisting through the trees. It was the most fun trail I’d been on yet. Easy too. Skiing on it was like resting. “I’m sure not looking forward to that uphill slog on the way back,” I said. “But this great downhill cruise makes it worth it, for sure!” After what seemed like hours, the trail ended, just like that, with only the forbidding wilderness of Cranbrook Mountain in front of me. I turned around, feeling refreshed, prepared to herring-bone, skateski and pole my way back to the head of the trail. But to my surprise, I began to glide back the way I came — downhill again! Through some trick of geography, Escher Trail was a trail that went downhill both ways. “Oh boy,” I said, “I’m going to be skiing this trail again!” If anything, Escher Trail was easier skiing back the way I came. Downhill both ways, how often does that happen? About halfway along, I saw a man on the trail, busy grooming away some tree branches. He looked up as I skied up to him. “What are you doing on this trail?” he
asked. “This is for volunteers only. Didn’t you see the sign?” “I did see the sign,” I said. “But I guess I ignored it. Say, how about this trail! It’s the best!” The man shook his head. “You’ve got a glimpse of what non-volunteers never glimpse. Many have skied these hills looking for the fabulous Escher Trail. Many have skied, few have seen. This is a mystical, edge-of-another-world perk for those who volunteer, keeping the South Star Trails in shape. Who told you about it?” “No one told me about it,” I said. “I just stumbled across it.” The man shook his head again. “No one just stumbles across it. Many have skied, few have seen.” “Well,” I said, “now that I have found it, you can bet I’ll be back. Not only do I feel refreshed, I feel like a Scandinavian Olympian.” Again, he shook his head. What was with all the head-shaking? “You might think you’ll come right back,” he said. “But you won’t. “You could,” he added, “always volunteer.” He got me to help him move a big piece of windfall away from the trail. And then I was off, skiing downhill the way I came, to the top of Escher Trail. And then I followed my nose out to the parking lot, feeling like an Olympian. And that was that. I have skied South Star Trails again and again, searching for the fabulous Escher Trail, that goes downhill both ways. But I have not been able to find it. I ask skiers as they schuss on by — they look at me blankly. I’ve taken the roscoe, the louie and another louie, and I’ve followed my nose. But it’s like Escher Trail never existed. But I’m not giving up my search. I’m keen to see what it’s like biking it in the summer. Perhaps it’s time to volunteer. Barry Coulter is Editor of the Cranbrook Daily Townsman

Opinion/Events Letters to the Editor
To Have or Not to Have — that was the question. Today, governments at all levels are desperately attempting to balance their budgets. The majority of Kimberley’s city council voted otherwise, the debacle of the last council meeting being a case in point. We apparently have a number of pending projects upcoming that will require serious monies to rectify. These should be prioritized with great care as to the impact on the community as a whole. Monies have to go to basic infrastructure first and then to wanted but non-essential projects. We can’t spend money we don’t have or have any realistic hope of raising. The hope that somehow we may qualify for government grants to bail us out and protect us from ourselves: get over it, not going to happen. Government grants usually go to the areas that voted for the government of the day and most importantly to municipal governments that show fiscal responsibility. Provincial and federal politicians through their grant administrators want to be seen as good managers and “purveyors of the public purse”. If you were handing out arena grants, would they go to the community trying to keep one arena or to the community that can’t afford two but insist they deserve two? Councillors Don McCormick and Darryl Oakley are to be applauded for being true to their convictions. I am sure both have been subjected to untold criticism. I commend you both for your pragmatic, fiscally responsible evaluation of this mess we find ourselves in. I thank you for doing your best considering the circumstances. I’m all for minor hockey, figure and speed skating but if the big picture indi-
cates that we can’t afford the convenience of two arenas we have to re-evaluate the circumstances before us. Accusations of making the issue political is an oxymoron; everything at city hall is political. All the upcoming infrastructure costs and where the money is to come from should be part of every spending decision. The Rolling Stones song that says “you can’t always get what you want” and the toughest word to say in the English language —“no”— should have applied here. Ted Boyachek Kimberley
The recent article, “Guide/outfitting camp supported by RDEK, but not for snowmobiling,” published on February 17th has many factual errors that make me question why Mayor Stetski is so opposed to snowmobiling and the Cranbrook Snowmobile Club. Statements such as: “It is critical caribou habitat…” and “I don’t think this should be available for snowmobiling,” by Mayor Stetski show his ignorance of the area in question and the role that snowmobilers have played in protecting mountain caribou habitat in recent years. The members of the Cranbrook Snowmobile Club have voluntarily agreed to restrict snowmobiling in critical habitat, placing thousands of hectares out of bounds to any winter-motorized use. In addition, we have limited our snowmobile use in other areas to existing roads and cutblocks, even though there have not been caribou sighted in most of these areas for over 10 years.
The article went on to state that there are 15 endangered mountain caribou in the Perry Creek area. In my review of the government tracking data for the past several years, I cannot find any evidence of caribou in the Perry Creek drainage. Any sightings and tracks have been to the west in other drainages. The location of the proposed camp is not in designated caribou habitat. Yes, it is adjacent to identified habitat, but so is the City of Cranbrook! The proponent of the satellite guide camp suggested that in the future, he would work with the snowmobile club to assist with our activities in the winter months. We always work with other tenure holders in our area, whether they are guide outfitters, trappers, miners or logging contractors. We respect everyone’s right to use the backcountry for work or recreation in a safe and environmentally respectful way. The Cranbrook Snowmobile Club has maintained a destination cabin in the Moyie River drainage for over 25 years for the use of our members and guests. We also have an emergency shelter open to the public with a wood stove, first aid equipment and a toboggan/stretcher. If the proposed site in the Perry Creek drainage offered a similar emergency shelter, this would be something that all winter backcountry recreationalists could enjoy. I would hope that before Mayor Stetski offers his opinion on snowmobiling again, he would sit down with our environmental committee to get his facts straight. Then perhaps he can make an informed decision. Douglas Hogg President, Cranbrook Snowmobile Club
Ukraine: Yanukovych’s last throw?
hen a government announces that it is going to launch an “anti-terror operation,” that generally means that it has decided to kill some people. That was what the police said at 6 pm local time Tuesday in Kiev, as they launched their assault on the protesters who have occupied the main square of the Ukrainian capital for 11 weeks — and sure enough, people started to die. President Viktor Yanukovych has not just had a bad two months; he has had a bad three years. He won the 2010 election narrowly but fairly, and ever since he has been trying to straddle the gap between Russia and the European Union. Both Moscow and Brussels have been courting Ukraine with trade-and-aid deals, and neither one was willing to let Yanukovych have it both ways. Yet if he opted for either one, half the country was going to condemn him, for Ukrainians are split almost fifty-fifty between those (mostly Ukrainian-speakers in the west
of the country) who want closer ties with the European Union and those (mostly Russian-speakers in the east and south) who want stronger links with Russia. Finally, in late November, he came down off the fence and chose Russia. He did so because Russia’s President Vladimir Putin was offering a massive financial bail-out if he joined Moscow’s new “Eurasian Union”— and threatening Gwynne to turn off the gas that keeps Dyer Ukraine’s economy functioning if he did not. He also did it because his own voters are mostly Russian-speakers in the east. But he didn’t do it happily, because he knew there would be a backlash. What he didn’t reckon with is the strength and duration of the protests, and the fact that they would expand beyond the simple Brussels-or-Moscow issue to take in the massive corruption that has flourished under his government. (Yanukovych’s son Oleksandr, a dentist by training, has become one of the country’s richest men in just three years.) And now his back is against the wall.
Anti-government protesters gather at a barricade at the site of clashes with riot police in Kiev, Ukraine, on January 25, 2014. For the first two months of the confrontation, the protests were mostly peaceful, the riot police were kept on a short leash most of the time (although five people were killed), and you would have taken an even-money bet that Yanukovych could ride it out. Then he made the error of passing severe anti-protest laws, some of the protesters (especially on the nationalist right) started to use violence, and he began to retreat. Within a week he was repealing his new laws in parliament, and accepting the resignation of his hard-line prime minister. Then he was offering the opposition leaders places
in a new cabinet (they refused), and granting amnesty to protesters who faced criminal charges. Then he proposed constitutional reforms that would reduce the power of the president – but on Tuesday he postponed the debate on those reforms in parliament. That was when the killing started — in front of the parliament, not on “Euromeydan”, the main square that the protesters have held since late November — between the rightwing nationalists of Praviy Sektor and a pro-government crowd imported from eastern Ukraine.

Finland knocks out Russian men’s hockey team with an upset 3-1 victory SOCHI, Russia - Finland eliminated Russia from the Olympic men’s hockey tournament with a 3-1 victory Wednesday, putting a stunning end to the Russians’ enormous expectations at home. Teemu Selanne scored an early goal and Tuukka Rask made 37 saves as Finland crushed the Russians’ dreams of winning hockey gold in front of their own fans. Russian teams have won eight gold medals in hockey, but none in the last 22 years. Selanne and Mikael Granlund each had a goal and an assist for the steady Finns, who overcame an early deficit and silenced the Bolshoy Ice Dome with two goals in the first period. Despite its roster of high-priced offensive stars, Russia couldn’t score in the final 52 minutes after Ilya Kovalchuk’s early power-play goal. Finland will face top-seeded Sweden in the semifinals on Friday. Russia has failed to win a medal in three straight Olympics since 2002, and even home-ice advantage couldn’t end the embarrassing drought. A quarter-final exit is excruciating for the proud Russian team, which pressed relentlessly and fruitlessly in the third period after falling behind by two goals. After the final buzzer, several Russian players stood on the ice with their hands on their knees. Evgeni Malkin, who failed to score a goal in the last four games, dropped to one knee before captain Pavel Datsyuk led the traditional post-game handshake line. Associated Press

Kootenay Ice forward Zach Franko has all kinds of room to score the opening goal against the Medicine Hat Tigers on Wednesday night at Western Financial Place.
Ice claw to 5-2 win over Tigers TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor
It seemed like a game destined for overtime. However, the Kootenay Ice survived a late scare to overcome the Medicine Hat Tigers at 5-2 to post an important divisional victory in the Eastern Conference playoff race. “It’s huge, obviously five points—now three—with not many games left, it’s huge,” said Reinhart. “It’s really a four-point game we won tonight, it was definitely, by far, the biggest game of the year.” Despite the win, Kootenay was outgunned on the shot clock, as Ice goaltender Mackenzie Skapski turned away 40 shots, while his counterpart across the arena, Marek Langhamer, made 23 saves. “Especially that team, they love to chuck everything at me,” said Skapski. “I felt like some of the guys kept the stuff to the outside and I saw most of it. They tried to throw traffic at me, but we did a good job of boxing things out and letting me see pucks.” With Tigers sniper
Curtis Valk going pointless, Reinhart took over the WHL’s longest active point streak at 18 games, scoring a goal and tallying three assists to reach the milestone. Valk had run his to the same number before missing the scoresheet on Wednesday night at Western Financial Place. The two teams remained scoreless after
“It’s really a fourpoint game we won tonight, it was definitely, by far, the biggest game of the year.” Sam Reinhart the first period, with Skapski and Langhamer making key saves to
keep it that way. Zach Franko made it 1-0 with 10 seconds remaining in the second period on the powerplay, pouncing on a fat rebound with a wideopen net. Early in the third period, Chad Labelle tied it up for Medicine Hat, slipping it through the five-hole after getting a short breakaway inside the Kootenay defensive
zone. Then, with five minutes left in the game, the Tigers drew more blood. A turnover in Kootenay territory resulted in an odd-man rush for Medicine Hat, and Jacob Doty fired home a slick pass from Blake Penner. But Kootenay had some late-game heroics of their own.

Reinhart owns longest active WHL point streak ARNE PE TRYSHEN Townsman Staff
On Wednesday night, Sam Reinhart from the Kootenay Ice got a goal and three assists during a 5-2 win over the Medicine Hat Tigers, which runs his points streak to 18 games. He said is was great to have points in all those games for his confidence as well as the teams. “The confidence is pretty good right now,” Reinhart said. “More importantly the team is winning when it really matters up into the season. So we’re playing with all our confidence right now and I’ll be looking forward to keeping it going.” Reinhart has had 16 goals and 26 assists in the last 18 games, with one goal and three assists in Wednesday night’s game. When asked how his results
on the score sheet have translated into wins for the team, Reinhart attributed the success back to the team. “Our top lines… we have a couple lines producing at a very good pace right now so that’s always a confidence boost for everyone else,” he said, “and our defensive line, they’re playing great for us as well. They’re chipping in every now and then and you know playing a great game against the other teams top players. So they’re very important to our success.” On the other bench, Medicine Hat Tigers Curtis Valk couldn’t keep his 18 game point streak up and said it isn’t easy coming in to play on the Kootenay Ice home turf. “It’s always tough,” Valk said. “It’s a long road trip during the
day, so coming off the bus you have to be ready to go. I think we started a little slow today compared to what we usually do at home. It’s definitely a tough road trip and they are a good team at home and it’s tough to play here.” Valk had no points in the game, but said the 18-game point streak he’s been riding was a good one. “It’s pretty cool I guess,” he said. “It’s better when the team is winning too, so when I can help out, it’s kind of my job to put up numbers, to score goals, so if it’s helping the team win, it’s even better. “It’s a good milestone, but there are still lots of games left and I’m going to have to keep working at it.” Valk had 16 goals and 13 assists in the last 19 games.

FACTS You Need to Know About…
New AntiDomestic Violence Plan
being implemented effective April 1. 2014 Arne Petryshen Photo
Taylor Johnstone, Emma Lim and Kayley Lim will be competing at the BC Winter Games which start today, Thursday, Feb. 20.
Key City gymnasts head to BC Winter Games Arne Petryshen Townsman Staff
The Key City Gymnastics Club will be sending three young gymnasts to the BC Winter Games this week. The three girls, Taylor Johnstone, 14, and sisters Emma Lim, 10, and Kayley Lim, 13, left to the Games Wednesday night. All three have been doing gymnastics pretty much since they could crawl, Emma and Kayley at the Cranbrook Club. Taylor has been at the club for the past five years. Kayley said she is mostly looking forward to the experience and being there for the events. “You get a really good idea of what big competitions like Nationals and Westerns are like,” Kayley said. Taylor said she is looking forward to the overall experience, meeting people and seeing other gymnasts in higher levels. “I would say experience too, because it’s
like a really big competition,” said Emma. All three have been working hard in preparation for the Games. “Mostly we’re kind of perfecting our routines and just tweaking them a bit,” Kayley explained. “We have a routine for each event, and then vault we do whatever routine we’re working on. There are four routines. It’s hard to explain, but everyone’s is different.” Kayley has also been giving the other girls an idea of what the competition and atmosphere will be like, since it is her second time to the Games. She said her favourite part of being at those games was seeing the older kids compete, though she admitted it was a bit overwhelming since she was just 11 at the time. Head Coach Garry Ricks said the Games are an experience for the girls, especially the two who haven’t been yet. “They are new to the Games experience
and the multi sport, so I think that whole atmosphere is going to be exciting for them,” Ricks said. “I think they all have a strong event that they could do well in.” He said this year is one of the stronger Zone 1 teams that they’ve sent and three gymnasts from Nelson will also be joining them. “It’s really different when you go to a multi sport, versus just a competition,” he said. “They’ve all done well in their categories throughout last year.” He said this will be somewhere between his 17th and 20th Games as a coach. The Games used to be held every year up until 1997. “I think it’s about my 18th games,” he said. “When you’re bringing new kids in it’s always exciting to see what they think of it. I think if they concentrate and put all the distractions of the games behind, I think they’ll do really well.”
Avalanche bound for provincials Tre vor Cr awley Sports Editor
It’s playoff time for the Avalanche men’s volleyball team. The Avs were able to keep their grasp on sixth place in the Pacwest standings, but climbed up to fifth after Vancouver Island University suffered a pair of losses in the final weekend of the regular season. Though tied in points, the Avs have won more sets over the course of the season, which gave them the edge. With the bye in the final weekend, the Avs were able to get some well-deserved rest to prepare for the upcoming provincial championships, hosted by the Capilano University Blues. “We had a bye this past weekend—the only team in the league—and I think it was really beneficial for us just to come back home, rest a little bit and have a mental and physical
break.” said Avs head coach Steve Kamps. “The guys are looking energetic, got their jump back and had a chance to mend a few aches and pains that you get at this time of year. “Mentally, they’re looking really sharp, had a chance to watch some video and prepare a game plan for Capilano, so we’re feeling very good about things.” The Avs and the Blues have faced each other four times— twice in each other’s home court—and Capilano has the season series edge with three wins and one loss. However, there’s more to it behind the numbers. The two teams first met at the College of the Rockies gym in November, and the Avs mounted a comeback after falling in to a two-set deficit to lose out in the tiebreak. The rematch, which the Blues won in
four sets, featured some tight set scores as well. The two teams also met in North Vancouver, when the Avs closed out their season earlier in February, leaving with a split record of a win and a loss. Both matches went to five sets, as the Avs won the first, but lost out on the following rematch. Those kind of results are encouraging for the Avs, who are eager to roll into provincials and be a contender. “We’re excited for the matchup,” said Kamps. “I think we do match up very good against Capilano. They are playing in their own gym, but sometimes that means more pressure and they’re a team that hasn’t been playing great as of late—they’ve been struggling with some injuries—so I think it’s good timing for us to face them right now.” The Avalanche-Blues match,
one of the tournament quarterfinals, will go down on Thursday night at 9 p.m. Should the Avs win, they will face the Columbia Bible College Bearcats in the semifinals. Though it’s playoffs, there is no series here, as each match is a one-and-done deal. If you lose, you’re out. “It’s single-elimination so you’ve obviously got to show up and play,” said Kamps. “There’s such parity in the league this year from first place to seventh place, it was so close with teams beating up on each other every weekend, it’s anybody’s tournament.” NOTES: Avs right side Curtis Stockton was named the Pacwest men’s player of the year on Wednesday. He was also named to the Pacwest men’s 1st team All-Stars. Teammate Zach Fedechko, who plays left side, was also named to the men’s All-Rookie team.
Our government is launching a three year plan to strengthen our collective approach to addressing domestic violence in British Columbia. The plan was developed through consultations with the public and anti-violence stakeholders.
Over the next 3 years, a $5.5 million Provincial Domestic Violence Plan will deliver on our commitment to make BC a safer place for women, children and anyone who has been aﬀected by domestic violence.
The plan focuses on reducing domestic violence in B.C. by providing an integrated and coordinated response to domestic violence in B.C through enhanced information sharing between all service providers, creation of specialized domestic violence units and improving direct services for those aﬀected by domestic violence.

Humphries, Moyes defend Olympic bobsled gold C anadian Press
SOCHI, Russia - The silver streak is over, thanks to Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse. The reigning Olympic women’s bobsled champions retained their title Wednesday and gave Canada its first gold medal since Day 5 of the Sochi Games. It appeared Humphries and Moyse, the dominant duo on the World Cup circuit, might
be forced to settle for yet another Canadian silver. But despite trailing Americans Elana Meyers and Lauryn Williams with two runs to go, the Canadians reached the top of the podium with a consistency that their rivals couldn’t match. “Winning gold is amazing, but walking away satisfied is better,” Calgary native Humphries said. “After the third run I knew that if we did the business we
could be on top.” The gold medal was the first for Canada in over a week. Dara Howell gave the country its fourth gold of the Games last Tuesday, but Canada hadn’t topped the podium since. The medals continued to come in, however, with Canada winning six silver and two bronze during the golden drought. The bobsled gold was Canada’s only medal at Day 13 of the Olympics,
but both curling foursomes ensured more hardware will be on the way. Winnipeg’s Jennifer Jones beat Great Britain 6-4 in the women’s semifinal, while Brad Jacobs of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., downed China 10-6 in the men’s semifinal. And Canada also moved closer to defending its gold in men’s hockey, though it was far from easy. Canada had to hang on for a nail-biting 2-1 win over Latvia in
a quarter-final that was expected to be a blowout. Canada was in fifth in the overall medal standings with 18 (five gold, nine silver, four bronze). The United States leads with 23 medals, followed by host Russia and the Netherlands with 22 each. Norway, which has a leading nine gold medals, is in fourth with 20 overall. Canada will have to perform exceptionally
over the final five days of competition to have a shot at its goal of winning the most overall medals in Sochi, but Humphries and Moyse kept the country in the hunt. While a medal was all but assured for Canada entering the final two runs, a gold was in serious doubt. Humphries and Moyse trailed Meyers and Williams by .23 seconds entering the final two runs. While a quarter second is a comfortable lead by bobsled standards, Moyse thought there was still a chance to defend the gold. “We said last night anything can happen at the Olympic Games,” said Moyse of Summerside, P.E.I. “You gave to believe anything is possible. Even the last two days we knew where we stood but we couldn’t stop believing because anything was possible.” Humphries and Moyse were consistently fast on their final two runs, while the Americans struggled with control. In the end the USA-1 sled came up short on its final run, giving Canada the win by a tenth of a second. “I had no idea how close I was in the last run,” Humphries said. “Heather did and said we closed the gap. I just gave it all we had and wanted one more clean run and see what happens. To get the gold and complete the job is awesome.” Team Canada had
some company in the area of tense games. On the curling ice, Jones needed to make a key shot in the final end against world champion Great Britain in order to move on to the final. Jones showed why she’s one of the best under pressure, drawing to the four-foot against three British counters to secure the win. She improved to 10-0 in Sochi, with only Swedish skip Margaretha Sigfridsson in the way of a perfect Olympic run. The women’s final is Thursday. “It’s crazy to think that we’re going to be on that podium, I’m not going to lie,” Jones said. “It was an emotional win. “We’ve dreamed of this since we were little girls ... We’re going to be on that podium no matter what. Nobody can ever take that away from us. It’s pretty exciting and something we’re going to celebrate, but right now we’re focused on trying to play well (Thursday).” Jacobs blew a tight game against China open with three in the ninth end. After a rough start in Sochi, the Canadian champion will face Great Britain on Friday with a second straight Olympic gold medal on the line. “To get another medal for all of Team Canada is a great feeling, but at the same time, we want to come out and we want to get that gold,” Jacobs said.
Ice crack Tigers with flurry of late goals Continued from page 8
Not even a minute later, Luke Philp came in on a breakaway and ripped a shot over Langhamer’s glove to knot the affair up at 2-2. Then Jaedon Descheneau received a ridiculous pass from Reinhart and beat Langhamer on another breakaway for a one-goal lead with 2:23 remaining in the game. Medicine Hat then pulled Langhamer for the extra attacker, however, a turnover at the neutral zone allowed Reinhart to skate the puck in for an easy empty-net goal. Bozon added another goal with a wide open cage in the final dozen seconds. Needless to say, the late scoring made for a nail-biting finish. “We stayed composed, stuck with it,” said Reinhart. “Good teams find a way to bounce back and with time running out, Luke [Philp] had a really big goal and we kept going from there.” The Ice are back in action this weekend as defenceman Tyler King will face his former team in a home and home series with the Spokane Chiefs.

Nets trade Kings veterans Brian Mahoney THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK - The Brooklyn Nets acquired guard Marcus Thornton from the Sacramento Kings for Jason Terry and Reggie Evans on Wednesday, removing two little-used veterans from their aging roster and hoping a younger one can rediscover his scoring touch. Terry came from Boston along with Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce but has appeared in just 35 games after a knee injury, averaging 4.5 points on 36 per cent shooting. Evans was a
favourite of fans but not coach Jason Kidd, who used him in just 30 of their 51 games. Evans made 56 starts last season and led the Nets with 11.1 rebounds per game, but lost his starting spot when the Nets acquired Garnett, and then fell behind rookie Mason Plumlee in Kidd’s rotation. Thornton averaged 21.3 points in 23 games with the Kings in 201011 after being acquired in a midseason trade with New Orleans. He then led the Kings with 18.7 points per game in 2011-12, but has fallen out of favour
Thursday, February 20, 2014
under defensive-minded coach Michael Malone, even getting benched at one point to make way for rookie Ben McLemore. “Marcus is a proven scorer in this league,” Nets general manager Billy King said in a statement. “He is a young talent who will help us in the backcourt.” But Thornton is averaging just 8.3 points, 2.7 rebounds and one assist in 24 minutes per game this season. He has started 26 of 46 games and is shooting 38 per cent from the floor, including 31 per cent from 3-point range.
Chicago Bulls show little rust after week off, beat Toronto Raptors 94-92 THE C ANADIAN PRESS
TORONTO - D.J. Augustin scored 13 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter against his former team to help lead the Chicago Bulls to a 94-92 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday. Carlos Boozer led the Bulls with 20 points, Kirk Hinrich scored 19 points and Joakim Noah recorded 13 assists. DeMar DeRozan led the Raptors with a game-high 32 points, Kyle Lowry added 16 points, but shot just 4-for-13. The Bulls showed little rust despite having the week off with the all-star break. Playing against a Raptors team that played the night before in
Washington, Chicago came out strong and led by 10 at the end of the first quarter. Tensions were high between the teams early as Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau and Lowry each picked up technical fouls in the first quarter. Tempers flared early in the second quarter as Chicago’s Nazr Mohammed and Toronto’s Tyler Hansbrough got entangled and were each called for a technical foul. Chicago would continue to add to its lead, pulling ahead by as many as 15 before the Raptors called a timeout midway through the second quarter. Coming out of the timeout, Toronto reeled off a 14-2 run before trailing 48-41 at the
half. The Bulls refused to relinquish their lead in a third quarter where the intensity remained high with DeRozan and Boozer called for double technicals. Hansbrough once again found himself tangled with a Bulls player, this time Mike Dunleavy, and the two picked up double fouls. Chicago led 70-62 after three quarters, and back-toback three-pointers from Augustin to open the fourth put the Bulls up by 10. The Bulls got stops when they needed them down the stretch and escaped with a victory after DeRozan’s 43foot heave at the buzzer missed the mark.

Palma de Mallorca: popular for good reason Maritime Travel’s Carla Nelson takes us to the capital of Spain’s Balearic Islands, with centuries of history to take in
alma de Mallorca is the only city and the capital city of Spain’s Balearic Islands. Located on the south coast of Spain in the Bay of Palma, the population of Palma is about 500,000. The island itself is only 21 square kilometres, just 13 metres above sea level. Palma de Mallorca is now a very popular holiday destination, especially for Europeans, but it wasn’t always that way. Palma was founded by the Romans in 123 BC. After the fall of the Roman Empire, the island was conquered by the Byzantine. Between 902 and 1229, it was under Islamic control. The Moors arrived in the 8th century, with a thriving economy based on piracy. For many years following, Palma became a main port for receiving and launching of pirate attacks.
Fast forward a few centuries and the island became a prosperous seaport and agricultural base. With the introduction of tourism in the 1950s, Palma secured a spot as an attractive holiday destination. With all the different rulers over the centuries, the architecture is unique and the culture is a curious blend of ideologies. Palma has a pleasant climate year round, with average temperatures in winter of 15 degrees Celsius and in summer, 28 degrees Celsius. It has relatively low precipitation and average monthly sunshine hours between 200 and 300. High season is July and August, which you would probably want to avoid because of the crowds, but other months would be desirable. Some hotels close for the winter months, similar to much of the
Greek islands. Some attractions on Mallorca include La Seu, a cathedral that was originally a mosque and took almost 400 years to build. Then it received a major restoration in 1901 by the famous architect, Antoni Gaudi. The Old City is a maze of streets with an Arab past; most are pedestrian only, because you could never manoeuvre vehicles through them! The banys arabs (arab baths) are a remnant of the Moorish era, near the Cathedral in the Old City. Two rooms of the original baths are still open to visitors, but the rest of the facility has fallen into disrepair. There are great cycling paths all along the sea promenade and throughout the city. There are many beautiful beaches, and sailing and boating are very popular.
Once a haven for pirates, the city of Palma de Mallorca is now a tourism hotspot in Spain. Palma is a port stop on some Mediterranean cruises, or you can fly there from the continent, or take the ferry from Barcelona. There is a vibrant nightlife, especially in the Paseo Maritimo,
which is the whole strip of promenade along the sea, with many bars, restaurants and discos. Tito’s was a popular spot in the 1950s for Frank Sinatra, Marlena Dietrich and Ray Charles, and is still operating
today. One of my favourite memories of Palma was enjoying a pamboli (kind of a pizza sandwich) with a jug of sangria under the umbrellas of a small open air restaurant in the main
square, with roving flamenco dancers entertaining the tourists and residents alike. For more information, contact Carla Nelson, Branch Manager, Maritime Travel 250489-4788.

Vancouver ranked North America’s top city for quality of living LUANN L ASALLE Canadian Press
MONTREAL — Canadian cities, led by Vancouver, dominate North America’s Top Five list for quality of life, according to a survey issued by global business consultant Mercer. Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal took the next three spots, followed by San Francisco, according to the 2014 Mercer Quality of Living rankings. The only weakness in ranking Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal compared with Vancouver was their harsher winters,
said Luc Lalonde, a principal at Mercer Canada. “It basically boils down to climate because Vancouver has a relatively mild climate,’’ Lalonde said Wednesday. The study also looked at such factors as political stability, crime statistics, public and medical services, consumer goods and recreation. The quality of living index is used by companies to help determine compensation for their employees working abroad. Ottawa ranked 14th globally, while Toronto
was 15th and Montreal 23rd. Globally, Vienna has been the top ranked city for the last three years, while Vancouver retained its fifth-place spot, Lalonde said. Zurich was No. 2 worldwide for quality of life, followed by Auckland, New Zealand and Munich, Germany. Lalonde said the rankings don’t usually change dramatically from year to year. “Wherever you have stability, good infrastructure and if the environment is politically and socially stable and if you have good public
services, these things don’t change overnight.’’ Cities with the lowest rankings in North America included Mexico City, financially troubled Detroit, St. Louis, Houston and Miami. Although Miami and Houston are popular destinations, factors such as crime, air pollution and traffic congestion could have affected their scores, Lalonde said. The city with the lowest ranking globally was strife-ridden Baghdad, followed by Bangui in Central African Republic and N’djamena in Chad.

Vancouver has been ranked as North America’s top city for quality of living, and fifth-best spot globally.
Canadian filmmaker missing in Cambodia; friends find disappearance unusual DIANA MEHTA Canadian Press AP PHOTO/SAYYID AZIM, FILE
In this April 22, 2009 file photo, the U.S.-flagged Maersk Alabama leaves the port of Mombasa, in Kenya.
U.S. men found dead on ‘Captain Phillips’ ship JASON STR A ZIUSO Associated Press
NAIROBI, Kenya — Two American security officers have been found dead on a ship made famous when it was hijacked by Somali pirates, according to a statement by Seychelles police on Wednesday. The two Americans — Jeffrey Reynolds and Mark Kennedy, both 44 — were found dead Tuesday in a cabin on the Maersk Alabama, according to the police. The ship was hijacked by pirates in 2009, an event dramatized in the movie “Captain Phillips’’ starring Tom Hanks. The two men’s bodies were found on Tuesday in their cabin on the ship where it was berthed in Port Victoria in the Indian Ocean island nation of Seychelles. The police gave no cause of death but said a post mortem has been scheduled. The U.S. Coast Guard stated from its headquarters in Washington that it is also investigat-
ing the deaths. The two men worked for U.S.-based Trident Security, according to the Seychelles police statement. Former military personnel frequently provide security on board ships sailing through the waters off Somalia to provide security against pirate attacks. Trident Security was founded by former U.S. Navy SEALs in 2000 and employs former special warfare operators to provide security. Requests to Trident for information about the two men were not immediately answered on Wednesday. The Maersk Line said the cause of death is under investigation but is “not related to vessel operations or their duties as security personnel.’’ The Maersk Alabama’s home port is in Norfolk, Va., where its parent company Maersk Line, Ltd. is also headquartered. The Maersk Alabama transports food aid to East Africa in support of the U.S. government’s
“Food for Peace’’ program, according to the company. Crew members also help support the Bee Hive Children’s Home in Mombasa, Kenya. Several crew members who were aboard the ship when it was hijacked in 2009 are currently suing Maersk Line Ltd. and Mobile, Ala.-based Waterman Steamship Corp. over the attack. The hijacking captured world headlines in 2009 and again when the movie, “Captain Phillips’’ was released recently. The five-day hijacking standoff ended when Navy SEALs aboard the USS Bainbridge shot and killed three of the pirates who were holding Capt. Richard Phillips in a lifeboat. Nine crew members in the lawsuit filed in Alabama in 2012 say they suffered physical and emotional injuries after Somali pirates boarded. Some crew members were held at gunpoint with Phillips, and others hid in an engine room.
The disappearance of a Canadian filmmaker in the Cambodian city of Siem Reap appeared all the more mysterious Wednesday as friends and family said the 58-yearold man was no stranger to his surroundings. Dave Walker spoke the language, knew the streets and was familiar with the local culture. Walker, who had been living in Cambodia for the past year and a half, was staying at a guest house last week when he decided to step out while a housekeeper tended to his room. He apparently left his room Friday afternoon with only a bottle of water and never returned. “This is completely out of character for him,’’ Walker’s cousin, Tammy Wallbridge Madon told The Canadian Press. “All indications were that he was going to be coming
back and he never did come back.’’ Walker’s disappearance was first noticed by his Cambodian business partner, Sonny Chhoun, who came to the guesthouse on Friday evening to meet with him. Chhoun found Walker’s cellphone, laptop, luggage and passport still in his room, but staff at the guest house said they hadn’t seen the Canadian in hours. After Walker failed to turn up that night, Chhoun contacted local police and has been searching parts of the city looking for the Canadian, who hasn’t been heard from since. A local media report said the Australian embassy — which handles consular cases in Cambodia for the Canadian government — had filed an official missing persons report on Walker in the capital city of Phnom Penh. The Phnom Penh Post quoted a police
OJ’s ponytail is coming off!
officer saying authorities were worried for Walker’s safety and were searching for him. Walker and Chhoun had set up a film company in Siem Reap in July 2012 called Animist Farm Films. Siem Reap is located just south of the famous Angkor Wat ruins, which draw hordes of tourist every year. The pair had recently been working on a documentary about the radical Khmer Rouge regime, which left close to two million people dead from starvation, medical neglect, slave-like working conditions and execution. Walker’s abrupt dis-
appearance had his friends and family fearing the worst. “This is very unusual,’’ said Peter Vronsky, who last heard from Walker on Thursday. “No one has seen him on the streets.’’ Vronsky said missing person posters were being distributed in Siem Reap in the hopes that someone would come forward with information on Walker. Friends and family are also hoping Canadian officials will urge Cambodian authorities to actively search for the man. “We’re concerned this not being made a priority,’’ said Vronsky.

HOROSCOPES by Jacqueline Bigar
ARIES (March 21-April 19) You have much to think about and consider. You might need to mellow out a bit. You will have an important and long-overdue discussion with a loved one or an associate. The less that is said to others, the better off you will be. Tonight: In the whirlwind of the moment. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You seem ready to make a dream a reality. A partner or several other people might want to pitch in, especially if this idea could affect them too. An upbeat attitude will help you feel more connected to others than you have in the past. Tonight: Say “yes” to an offer. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Take news with a grain of salt. A boss might have a lot to say, and will talk openly if you seem interested in what he or she has to share. Use caution with your finances. A risk might not pay off in the way you’d hoped it would. Tonight: Get a head start on tomorrow’s work.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) Events could put you more in touch with your dynamic energy. Look at the long-term implications when looking at the big picture. A situation might not evolve as you might wish it would. Do more listening and sharing. Tonight: Get into weekend mode. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You might want to spend more time at home. Use your instincts to achieve a better sense of harmony with a loved one. Indulge in more time together. A change in your schedule could force changes to happen elsewhere in your life. Tonight: Order in. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You might want to examine what is happening in your immediate environment. Make calls, catch up on news and clear your desk. You will come up with a more efficient way of handling key matters. Others will come through for you. Tonight: Spend time with a loved one. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Listen to what is being shared, but hold back for now on shar-
ing what you know. A partner might do the unexpected. You could be upset, but you also do enjoy the excitement that this person brings to your life. Tonight: Do some shopping on the way home. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You might be in the middle of all the action. Take the lead, prioritize and delegate; otherwise, too many key details could be missed. You understand the implications of what is going on better than most people do. Tonight: Think “weekend.” Make plans. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You move through details quickly, yet one could slip past you and ultimately sabotage your plans. Slow down or recheck your work. You also might need to consider getting a second person to work with you on this project. Maintain your sense of humor. Tonight: Ever playful. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Call on your self-discipline. Use your sixth sense to tune in to the obvious dynamics of a particular matter. Someone could appear
to be almost too generous. Pull back while you can, and see what is happening with this person. Tonight: Get together with friends. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You might feel as if you have an additional responsibility weighing you down. Stop and look at what is happening instead of continuing as you have been. Look at the big picture to see your options more clearly. Choose a more easygoing pace. Tonight: A must appearance. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You see life very differently from how many of the people around you see it. As a result, others often are inspired and/or confused by you. At the moment, use your instincts to proceed with an important matter. You will land on your feet. Tonight: Read between the lines.

ANNIE’S MAILBOX by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: One of our darling granddaughters started to pull out her eyelashes at around age 9. We expressed our concern to our son. Shortly after, we were told that our granddaughter was seeing a counselor to address this behavior. We were so relieved when she stopped. But about a year later, she started again. Now her 9-year-old brother is pulling hair out of his head. He has a bald spot about two inches in diameter. Our son and his wife have education degrees. The marriage and family appear OK. The kids seem happy, and they do well in school. I recently brought up the counseling to our son, but he said, “We tried that.” He indicated that the kids will stop on their own. Is stress causing this? How involved should we get? Right now, we feel like it’s the elephant in the room. -- Blue-Collar Grandparents Dear Grandparents: Trichotillomania is a disorder that results in compulsive hair pulling. It is currently considered to be a “body-focused repetitive behavior.” There also may be a genetic predisposition, which would explain why both of your grandchildren suffer from it. Sometimes stress, anxiety or fatigue can trigger the hair pulling, but not always. Doctors do not know the underlying cause but believe it may develop due to a combination of genetic, hormonal, emotional and environmental factors. Appropriate treatment involves cognitive behavioral therapy, sometimes in combination with medication, hypnosis and relaxation techniques. Your son and his wife may already be taking the necessary steps, but either way, you can get more information through the Trichotillomania Learning Center at trich.org. Dear Annie: I recently learned that a friend’s son died from a heart attack. He was relatively young. I was both saddened and shocked. I was more despondent that my friend and his current (third) wife did not attend his son’s funeral. They live in another state, but still. It was his son. We’ve been friends for more than 50 years, but it makes me realize he wouldn’t bother attending my funeral, either. Annie, should I dissolve our friendship? Should I tell him how shocked and disappointed I am? Or should I simply overlook it? -- Sensitive, Caring Person Dear Sensitive: While not attending his son’s funeral seems callous, is it possible that your friend has health issues that prevented him from traveling? Might he and his son have been estranged and his presence at the funeral unwelcome? You can let him know that you were surprised he didn’t attend the funeral, but he is under no obligation to satisfy your curiosity. Limiting the friendship because you believe he no longer cares enough about you is a legitimate concern, but cutting off a 50-year friendship because he might not attend your funeral is excessive. How your friend treats you while you are alive is what counts Dear Annie: This is in response to those individuals who invite family, friends and neighbors to their home for dinner and then feel slighted because the invitation is not reciprocated. Many years ago, when invited to someone’s home, I did return the invitation. But it always made me nervous to entertain. I’d lose sleep, worry about what to serve, wonder whether I’d have enough food or whether my dinner would turn out well. I finally decided that it just was not worth the anxiety to keep having people over. I will occasionally host an informal gathering at my home, nothing fancy. Thank goodness I have friends who know that entertaining makes me anxious. They still invite me to their homes and ask me to bring a salad, a dessert or a bottle of wine. Some of us just aren’t meant to host parties. -- I’m Not Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

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. 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.

The protesters claim that the government infiltrated agents provocateurs into their crowd to start the violence, and the police certainly fought alongside Yanukovych’s supporters in the street battles there. More than a dozen people were killed, including six police, but the fighting in front of parliament was over by mid-afternoon. It might have stopped there, but Yanukovych decided to use this calamity as an excuse to clear Euromeydan by force, although there had been no fighting there.

What is happening in Ukraine is no longer a non-violent protest against a particular government policy. It is a revolution in which both sides are starting to see violence as legitimate, and Yanukovych’s problem is that most people in the capital, though they don’t approve of the violence, support the other side.

And the country’s most powerful oligarch (some would say king-maker), Rinat Akhmetov, has just declared that there are “no circumstances that would justify the use of force against peaceful citizens.” Yanukovych has run out of options. It is hard to see him staying in office unless he turns Ukraine into a full-scale police state, and it’s not easy to see how he could make that stick. The opposition is probably going to win. Then they’ll have to figure out what they want, apart from an end to Yanukovych.
