Childcare crisis under microscope Local groups come together to study East Kootenay childcare problems


A new local task force is tackling the East Kootenay’s childcare crisis. Starting this spring, the group is conducting a child care needs assessment for the region. The assessment will

seek public input on problems that families face in securing child care, and make recommendations on how to alleviate the issues. The task force is made up representatives from the East Kootenay branches of Children First, Success By Six,

Child Care Resource and Referral, as well as community members. Columbia Basin Trust and Teck are partnering with the task force. “Many of us in our different roles have had people approach us quite often about the childcare crisis,” said Pa-

tricia Whalen of Children First. “Right now, there are two scenarios in many of our communities: they either have the space for child care but not staff, or some communities have staff but no space.” The group conducted a

survey recently that illustrated the need for a comprehensive study of childcare issues. “It was quite evident from that survey that there is a huge need in all of the communities,” said Whalen.

A Kimberley taxi driver was robbed at gun point just before midnight Saturday, RCMP report. Cpl. Chris Newel says that the driver got a call asking to be picked up near the Marysville Park swings. “The driver attended; a lone male produced a handgun and demanded money,” Newel said. “Once the subject obtained the money he fled on foot.” Members from both Kimberley and Cranbrook quickly converged on the area, Newel said, and conducted extensive patrols. “A Police Dog also attended and obtained a track but was but was unable to locate the suspect,” Newel said. The suspect is described as a Caucasian male in his 30s, with blue eyes, wearing blue jeans, a black hoodie and a white ski mask. He made the call to the taxi from the payphone at the Marysville PetroCan around 11:30 pm. Police are asking anyone with information to contact the Kimberley RCMP at 250427-4811

Rock violinist Aaron Meyer and guitarist Tim Ellis thrilled the audience at a recent performance at the Key City Theatre. Meyer came to town at the invitation of the Cranbrook Violin Club, founded in 2010 by music teacher Kim Lutz. The club’s goal is to make music accessible to all families with young children. Earlier in the day, the students of Kootenay Orchards Elementary School were treated to an assembly with Meyer and Ellis, and afterwards the members of the Violin Club were fortunate to have the opportunity to attend Master Classes (pictured above) during which they learned about song writing and recording in addition to violin and guitar techniques from Aaron and Tim.

Scammers target emotions with funeral hoax A new scam doing the rounds in Cranbrook draws on the emotion of losing a loved one

S a l ly M acD o n a l d Townsman Staff

Cranbrook residents have been hit by a scam that comes in an emailed funeral notice, according to the Better Business Bureau. The local bureau is warning people not to let their compassion coerce them into a condolence scam. People have been receiving an email with “funeral notification” as the subject lines. The email looks legitimate because scammers using realistic logos, business names and email ad-

dresses. The message offers condolences on the recent passing of “your friend”, whose name is not specified. You are then prompted to click on a link for the details of the upcoming “life service celebration”. If you click on the link, you will be re-directed to a foreign domain, which acts as a gateway for scammers to install harmful malware onto your computer. If this happens, scammers could have access to the personal

have recently suffered the loss of a loved one, contact your friends and family about the funeral arrangements.” BBB provides consumers with these common red flags of email phishing scams: • Don’t believe what you see. As in the example above, scammers can easily copy a real business’ colours, logo and even email address. • Hover over links to check their source.  Place your mouse over hy-

information stored on your device. According to Get Cyber Safe, there are an estimated 156 million phishing emails sent every day, with the fraudulent funeral notice as the latest version. “People receive countless emails each day, which is why scammers try to grab your attention with something as serious as the death of a loved one,” she said. “If no one in your family or circle of friends has passed then you should delete the email. But if by chance you

per-linked text and the true destination will appear. • Be wary of unexpected emails that contain links or attachments. As always, do not click on links or open the files in emails unless you know the sender and are expecting it. • Beware of popups. Some pop-ups are designed to look like they’ve originated from your computer. If you see a pop-up that warns of a problem that needs to be fixed with an extreme level of urgency, it may be a scam.

• Watch for poor grammar and spelling. Scam emails often are riddled with typos and usually indicate that English is not the writer’s primary language. • Ignore calls for immediate action. Scam emails try to get you to act before you think by creating a sense of urgency. Don’t fall for it! • Update your antivirus.  Regularly updating your security software will go a long way in protecting your computer should you happen to click on a malicious link.

Task force taking on childcare crisis Continued from page 1 “Out of 272 respondents, 80.5 per cent said they felt there was a need to do a more in-depth childcare assessment.” Whalen said some of the task force members have spoken to families who are planning to move to Cranbrook and call to enquire about childcare availability. When they learn there is a wait list, some families change their relocation plans. “It’s a bigger picture than I think is realized. People aren’t moving here.” As well as childcare availability, the cost of childcare is an issue, Whalen said, mentioning that when she had two children in child care it cost $1,200 a month. “That’s another part of the crisis – parents are feeling, ‘I’m basically just going to work to pay for child care,’” said Whalen. “It’s tough – there are a lot of people out there who are very employable but they can’t find the child care. So it certainly affects our economy.” Starting in the spring, a consultant will begin to circulate surveys about child care for community members to fill out. There will also be a round of community consultation sessions. The consultant will use the consultation to prepare a report on East

Kootenay childcare with recommendations. That report will be presented to the community, as well as to the recently announced B.C. Office for the Early Years, elected officials, school districts, city councils and chambers of commerce. “A lot of people talk about the crisis but they don’t really know how bad it is until they see it on paper and they see the stats and the different types of childcare that are required to help our families,” said Whalen. “Most people probably feels it’s 9-5 required, but then there are families that need after school care, we’ve got parents who do shift work – there is quite a few scenarios.” With the report in hand, the next stage will be acting on its recommendations, Whalen went on. “I know it’s not an easy fix. It’s bigger than just building a space; we need the staff, they have to be paid appropriately. “It’s quite exciting that we can move forward now. High quality child care is very important to the development of our children.” Stay tuned for more details on how you can provide input to the childcare needs assessment. “I look forward to being part of the project. It’s a very important one to our region,” said Whalen.

It happened in Cranbrook

Days of Cranbrook/Kimberley ‘Light Rapid Transit’ Dave Humphrey

Items compiled from the archived newspapers held at the Cranbrook Museum and Archives 1900 All Aboard For Kimberley … The North Star Branch is now completed to that town. Kimberley has been relieved, and now enjoys railroad connections. The North Star Branch is completed and trains are running from Cranbrook to Kimberley. Quite a number of passengers have patronized the road all ready, and it will not be long before train loads of ore will be coming down the line from the North Star and other rich mines of that district. Cranbrook extends the glad hand to the people of Kimberley, and congratulates them on the fact that they are now in direct communication with the outside world. Kimberley will grow. St. Eugene Hospital … Last Friday evening the St. Eugene hospital building was formally opened under the auspices of the Cranbrook Ladies Hospital Aid society. The St. Eugene hospital, which has just been completed, ranks as one of the very best institutions of its kind in the Kootenays, and for its size, there is not a better equipped or more conveniently arranged hospital in British Columbia. As is well known to most of The Herald readers, the original hospital was built at the Mission, five miles from Cranbrook. The present site was selected, the land being a gift from Col. Baker and his son, V. Hyde Baker, and work commenced last summer on the new structure by Mr. Navin, the contractor. With all speed, consistent with good work, the building was pushed forward, until last month, when it was completed in every detail, a magnificent monument to the Sisters and the people of this district. Small Pox Near … Word was received yesterday morning that there was a case of small pox at Fernie, and later it was given out that Dr. Barber

was the unfortunate. Dr. King was in attendance, and he telegraphed to Constable Morris to have Rev. Holford’s home placed in quarantine, as that gentleman had just returned from Fernie where he had visited Dr. Barber. This was done immediately. The Royal Hotel, where Dr. Barber is living, is quarantined, with about 30 people. Mr. Sheppard, who went up to take charge of the station until the agent got out of quarantine, went over to the hotel, and it is reported, was locked up also. Dr. King says there is not much danger of the disease spreading if care is taken. Ice Harvest … Messrs Grant & Sheady have the contract for putting up on the neighbourhood of 1,000 tons of ice for Moyie and Cranbrook parties. 1902 Want Incorporation … Meeting of citizens appointed committees for this purpose. A large meeting of the citizens was held Wednesday evening of last week at the Cranbrook Hotel for the purpose of discussing the question of incorporation. The question was thoroughly discussed but lack of information prevented any definite action being taken. Get Fitted … Cranbrook ladies should take advantage of the visit of Miss Sexton, the celebrated W. B. corset fitter, at Reid & Co.’s store on Thursday of this week, 20 inst, Mrs. W.

The New Brewery … The preliminary arrangements for the new brewery have been completed, and a strong company has been formed with an authorized capital of $25,000. The new plant will have a capacity of 25 barrels a day, and the equipment will be modern in every respect. Fred Giller, the brewer, who takes a large block of stock, left Tuesday for the coast to purchase the plant. The company includes James Ryan. L. B. VanDecar, Joseph Brault, Frank Clapp, McDermot & Bowness and others. The plant of the East Kootenay Bottling works will be combined with the brewery management. It is expected that the new institution will be ready for business in the month of May. Narrow Escape … For 10 or 15 minutes last Saturday night between the hours of twelve and one o’clock, the people who saw the terrific fire raging in Miss Macleod’s millinery store, were confident that at least half of the business portion of the town would he a heap of ashes Sunday morning. It was a few minutes after 12 o’clock when Messrs. Leadbeater and Veach noticed a blaze in the millinery store room and hastened to give the alarm, and within a few minutes most of the fire boys were on duty under the leadership of Chief Bradley.

1906 Huge Tree Felled … Malcolm McEacheren, of the Moyie Lumber Company, told the Herald last Tuesday that Alex St. Elois’ men at camp 4, at Swanson, cut last week, a tree that scaled 7,500. It was cut in four logs and is thought to be the largest tree ever cut in South East Kootenay.

Have questions on how to apply?

Bridge Needed … It is about time for some steps to be taken to provide a bridge across the slough on the east side of the town for the rapidly increasing residents on Baker Hill. Continued soft weather will soon make the road impassable.

BC Hydro will be making system improvements and re-locating the power line in the Wasa—Wolf Creek area to improve reliability for customers along Wolf Creek Road. Work will begin February 2014 and is expected to be completed by June 2014. The project will include vegetation clearing work, followed by construction activities and the use of heavy equipment, which could result in higher than normal traffic activity in the area.

building is owned by Paul Handley, and was formerly used as livery stable. It is two stories high and extends from the street to the lane, the rear portion being only one storey. The fire had evidently started in one of the small rooms on the ground floor used as a fitting room for the dress makers, and when the fire brigade got their first hose laid the back part of the store room was a mass of seething flames. Undaunted by smoke or heat one detachment rushed in through the front with a line of hose and soon had a terrific stream of water playing upon the blaze. But soon after the fire was breaking out on the side of the building next to the old Bank of Commerce building and also through the ceiling to the rooms above. Once the fire had gotten a start outside it would have been almost impossible to have saved any portion of the block or the Royal Hotel. Chief Bradley had two more lines of hose laid, one from the Cranbrook Hotel corner and the other from the P. Burns corner, both to the rear of the burning building. With the streams from these two lines combined with the one in the front, it was only a few minutes before the fire lessened in its intensity and was soon under control. But what a wreck fire, smoke and water left the building which that day had been redecorated

Waxing eloquent on the subject of skis “Those who know everything are a great nuisance to us who think we already do.” Jonathan Dough A friend of mine wrote recently to ask if I might be enjoying the Olympics and added, “I think the North Americans need to learn how to wax their cross country skis. Pretty pathetic.” “Pretty pathetic” neatly describes my own antics at waxing over the millennia because, frankly, nobody had the patience to teach me to do it properly and, mostly, because I never bothered to find out. Waxing my downhill skis was an utter anathema to me; they went fast enough, thank you, although there were a couple of occasions late in the spring — read, early summer — when a dab of silver wax didn’t go amiss. In fact my friend Paul and I were nearly trapped overnight up on those trails near the Kimberley ski hill because, having climbed to the height of the runs, we found that our skis refused to move. Each time we scraped them clean of snow that looked like and acted like mashed potatoes and put them down they were loaded again. It took a lot of thought, a huge amount of very bad language, and an intensive search through our two back-packs until we discovered an ancient candle, half burned

through. Rubbed on thoroughly, that candle wax did the job and we skied to safety at last. The 20-year old chocolate bar — with dog hair attached — went down remarkably well. I am sure that it was with Paul again, plus another maniac, when we had climbed up into the Nine Basins of the Wildhorse one winter and almost came unstuck. In fact, we stuck. I’ve been reminded that it was due to my blundering off in the wrong direction that caused us to be so late and Peter so, when the temperature thus the snow became Warland and cold enough, our skis wouldn’t run. There we were with the bottom fallen out of the thermometer, night falling far too rapidly, and our skis refusing to budge. We were standing on precipitous slopes, attempting to look elegant, and we weren’t moving; we were forced to walk inelegantly downhill. All three of us waxed eloquent on that occasion, I can assure you. Later on, after we had survived that episode plus, whilst being towed behind the snowmobile, my falling asleep on my skis, some loquacious person endeavoured to explain the science of skiing on too cold snow but, what with the warm room, the big meal and my general fatigue, I lost interest. Apparently, we should have had a special wax with us.


However, we had to “make do” when the snowmobile wouldn’t make progress up into the Paradise Mine that spring. As if it were a noisy mule, it just refused to move. Apparently, the runners at the front wouldn’t run and so, after a “Zorba the Greek” dance, we dug out some silver ski wax and applied that. Improvisation was the word that bright day until the snowsled, sputtering indignantly, ended up way down a precipitous bank in the creek. An avid ski friend from Norway once tried to interest me in the ideas of his ancestors the Sami — those Lapp people who herd reindeer in the north. This shared interest occurred when Sami, as we called him, snapped a wooden ski in two on the mountain near Pine Pass, north of Prince George and had to make his way down in a series of long traverses with one foot on the remaining unbroken ski and the other limb on the broken bit. Sami pondered between sensational falls what his ancestors, who rushed about on skis of differing lengths might have used as a wax. We suggested reindeer poop but Sami wasn’t convinced. He claimed that he’s once used door hinges as bindings on his cross-country skis but, in that school-learned English modified by a few years in Quebec logging camps, it was hard to decide if he might be kidding. Clearly then, I should be taking some genuine lessons in waxing skis, but not just yet; it might spoil the fun.

Letters to the Editor


Response to Snowmobiles/Caribou (Letter, Feb. 20). Personally I support snowmobiling and caribou. Here are the facts from the Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK) Planning and Development Services Committee meeting of February 13, 2014. The Agenda is posted on the RDEK website and this was item 9.4.2 under Natural Resource Operations Referrals. The Staff Report that accompanied the motion said: “The proposed camp location is surrounded by the largest continual caribou habitat area shown in the Cranbrook West Management Strategy. Staff notes that the use of the proposed camp location by the guide-outfitting operation for the limited time and intensity mentioned in the application may not cause negative impacts; however permitting use by the snowmobile club has the potential to increase use of the area throughout the winter and could cause negative pressure on the local caribou population.” The RDEK voted in favour of the proposed camp location but not in favour of using the camp for snowmobiling. The vote was 14 Directors in favour and 0 opposed – a unanimous decision. As you know the herd of caribou referred to is a rare and endangered species, and the RDEK motion is a recommendation to the Province’s Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. If this is not a critical area for caribou as outlined by staff, the Province has the right to approve the snowmobile clubs use of the camp. In the end it is their decision. I would encourage everyone to attend the RDEK Committee and Board meetings which are generally held the first Thursday and Friday of each month in the Regional District Boardroom located at #19 – 24th Ave. S. in Cranbrook (adjacent to the hospital parking lot). This is an important and interesting level of government that you as taxpayers pay into every year. The meetings are open to the public and the gallery is usually empty except for delegations and the media. It’s a great place to get the facts on lots of interesting issues! Thanks for the opportunity to clarify. As I said at the beginning of this letter I am in favour of both snowmobiling and caribou! Wayne Stetski Mayor of Cranbrook

Urban Deer

According the article in the Townsman, Feb. 20 (City to survey residents on deer cull), the article refers to Councillor Gerry Warner, and says that he “does not support the city spending any money on the survey (deer cull), when it is clear to him that Cranbrook has a problem with urban deer.” Then Councillor Warner is directly quoted as saying, “How much longer do we need to go on debating and surveying? I think that issue is settled and I’d like to go on record now saying I will support a cull of deer in our city at any time.” So, Coun. Warner, YOU think the issue is settled? You seem certain that probably 95 per cent of the people in Cranbrook would support the massacre of which you speak. Where are you getting these numbers? It sure wouldn’t be from many of the people that I talk to. Humanity and emotions aside Mr. Warner, you can’t just round

up stats out of the air to support your wanting to go on a killing spree. Holy Bill of Animal Rights, Batman, give your head a shake. Realizing there could be (and are) genuine concerns with deer in mating season or when babies are young, doesn’t mean the only way to solve it is with killing the animals. Just because we can do something, doesn’t mean that we should. If the estimated cost of 10 stolen deer traps is $17,000, could that money not be used toward the costs of relocating families of deer? Rather than trapping them and then killing them — kind of like shooting fish in a barrel? It is my understanding that it is actually difficult to relocate deer. I imagine it was also difficult to build a town in the middle of a mountain forest and yet, we did that. And now we have a problem. I am not claiming to have the answers, I am just questioning how we can call the deer “aggressive” and still think of ourselves as “evolved” when our first response to “something being in the way” is to kill it. Jacquie Clinton Cranbrook


Re: “Koocanusa recreational issues to the fore,” Feb 18. It is with dismay that I read that there is to be yet another ‘study’, the land use and abuse issues at Koocanusa. Only in this case it is called a “scoping exercise!” There are enough studies and plans gathering dust on government shelves to choke a hippo. What we should be examining is the lack of will to put the plans in practice! In 2005 the ORV Coalition put forth a comprehensive report on off road vehicle management that to date is still waiting to be used as intended (, ). It is time to get on with it and not stand still as the last jurisdiction in North America to allow ORVs to go unregulated. Yes I said LAST. The other mentioned problems in Koocanusa already have laws to deal with them. What is lacking is the resources to enforce those laws. I would suggest not wasting money on another ‘study’ and use it to fund the Conservation Officer and Compliance and Enforcement Services. An unnecessary study is just another excuse to not actually do something that will make difference on the ground. It should be noted that the problems at Koocanusa, although egregious, are not contained to that area. Rangelands throughout the whole Trench suffer similar abuses. The Kootenay Livestock Association, as well as many other stakeholder groups, have been asking for these problems to be addressed for 30 years. Land and habitat is being severely damaged and destroyed. Action is well overdue. The government used to have planners, but to my understanding have either let them go or reassigned them. I am sure one of them could be reassigned again to dust off those old plans and get them into practice. Time is a-wasting. Don Lancaster


Those eerie pictures of kids from yesteryear


Mike Selby

hile the small fishing village of Osprey, Florida is ideal for retirees, Ransom Riggs didn’t think it was the most exciting place to be raised in. With few children to play with, Riggs spent his childhood weekends antiquing with his grandmother. Initially bored out of his mind, he soon became fascinated by century-old black and white photographs which could be found at nearly every stop. Although he found all of the photos to be weird, the ones of children always gave him the shivers. “Pictures of kids from a long time ago” Riggs would later state, “are inherently creepy. Riggs happily left Osprey after high school, and attended university in Ohio and later in California. He became an acclaimed filmmaker (The Accidental Sea), and an equally acclaimed writer (The Sherlock Holmes Handbook, Mental Floss).

Monday, February 24, 2014

While scouting for a film location in 2010, Riggs happened to walk by the Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena, only to find his childhood revisiting him. One vendor had displayed hundreds of old photographs of children. Riggs ended up buying them all, and the spent the rest of the year hunting and collecting any black and white pictures of children he could find. Riggs took a handful of the most disturbing looking photos to his editor at Quirk Publishing, asking him if he would like to publish a coffee table book of the haunting images. After flipping through them all, the editor suggested that instead of a picture book, Riggs should write a novel about the children found in the pictures. “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” appeared in June of 2011, and spent the next 63 weeks at the top of the New York Times Best Seller List. The novel

is story of a teenager who travels to a small island off the coast of Wales in search of his grandfather’s murderer. The book includes 44 pictures from Riggs’ collection, with the creepiest one he ever found adorning the cover. His original idea for a coffee table book of just the photos was published in 2012 as “Talking Pictures.” The photos Riggs chose for this book all had inscriptions written on them—illuminating what would otherwise be a collection of lost photographs. “Hollow City,” the sequel to “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” was published just last month. More than 50 photos are found peppered throughout the book, each one somehow more freaky-looking than the rest. Ransom Riggs is currently working on the third book in the series. Mike Selby is Reference Librarian at the Cranbrook Public Library

Dynamiters close out regular season with a win over Fernie TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Kimberley Dynamiters closed out their regular season with a 4-2 win over the Fernie Ghostriders on Saturday night at the Civic Centre. Dylan Sibbald and Tyler Garcia each led the way with a goal and an assist, while Bryce Nielsen and Tyson Klingspohn added scoring for the Nitros. Spencer Bender and Austin Hirano replied for the Ghostriders. Tyson Brouwer picked up the win for Kimberley with 21 saves, while Austin Wells turned away 24 shots for the Riders. Sibbald opened the scoring in the first peri-

od, while Bender replied in the middle frame. Hirano put the Riders up early in the third period, however, a trio of Nitro powerplay goals were good enough to seal up the win for Kimberley.

Garcia scored first, while Nielsen followed a few minutes later with the go-ahead goal. Klingspohn gave Kimberley a two goal lead with just over eight minutes to go in the game,

which proved to be too much for Fernie. Kimberley ends the regular season with a 29-21-2-0 record with 60 points, which puts them in second place in the Eddie Mountain Division. The Nitros have home-ice advantage, and will face off against the Riders in the first round of the playoffs. Creston Valley finished in the division lead with 80 points, while the Kamloops Storm finished first overall in the KIJHL with 85 points and a 42-9-0-0 record. The first playoff round opens on Tuesday evening at the Kimberley Civic Centre between the Nitros and the Riders.

Barry Bonds is set to become Giants spring training instructor ASSOCIATED PRESS

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Barry Bonds is all set to return to the San Francisco Giants. As a spring training instructor, that is. The all-time home run leader who never officially retired is expected to arrive during the second week of March. Manager Bruce Bochy said Saturday that he’s looking forward to having the 49-year-old

Bonds in camp and thinks he can help the hitters. Bonds spent his last 15 seasons with the Giants, finishing in 2007. He has not been elected to the Hall of Fame, with many voters saying his lofty numbers were boosted by performance-enhancing drugs. Bonds set major league records with 762 career home runs and 73 in 2001. He also had a

.444 career on-base percentage and a .607 slugging percentage and stole 514 bases. He’ll join former Giants Jeff Kent, Robb Nen, Will Clark and J.T. Snow as special instructors. Kent and Bonds were involved in a highly publicized feud during the 2002 season, which reached its peak in June, when the two engaged in a shoving match in the dugout.

Kootenay Ice goaltender Mackenzie Skapski makes the game-winning save against Jason Fram of the Spokane Chiefs during a shootout on Friday night at Western Financial Place.

Ice split with Spokane TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Home ice really is an advantage. The Kootenay Ice and the Spokane Chiefs each came away with a win on home soil, as they took turns hosting each other this weekend. The Ice pulled out a 3-2 shootout victory on Friday at Western Financial Place, but dropped a 6-3 decision to the the Chiefs in Spokane on Saturday. The Ice remain in fifth place in the Eastern Conference, five points behind the Medicine Hat Tigers, who occupy fourth. Chiefs sniper Mitch Holmberg scored a first-period hat trick on the way to a 6-3 win in Spokane. Carter Proft added a pair of goals, while Marcus Messier also supplied offence for the Chiefs. Tim Bozon, Zach Franko and Jagger Dirk responded for the Ice. Ice goaltender Mackenzie Skapski was replaced by Wyatt Hoflin after the first period, after allowing four goals in 15 shots. Chiefs netminder Eric Williams made 33 saves for the win. Holmberg scored his hat trick in the span of 9:01 and Messier added a goal in the final minute of the opening peri-

od for a 4-0 Chiefs lead. Franko answered back with the lone goal in the second period, while Bozon tallied early in the final period. Reinhart picked up an assist on the play, extending his point streak to 20 games, one away from the franchise record held by Ice alum Mike Comrie. However, Proft got his first less than a minute after Bozon scored, and added a second 10 minutes later. Jagger Dirk replied with a late powerplay goal, but the Ice ran out of time to mount a comeback. It was a better result on Friday in Cranbrook, as Kootenay picked up a shootout win despite outplaying their opponents for much of the game.

Rinat Valiev was the shootout hero, beating Williams through the five-hole, while Skapski was perfect in turning away all five Spokane shooters. “It feels great,” said Valiev. “I’m so happy to get the win and we get the two points.” Dirk opened the scoring in the first period with a huge slap shot at the point, which was assisted by Landon Peel and Reinhart. Valiev added Kootenay’s second goal in the middle frame with another shot at the blue line that redirected past Williams. However, Keanu Yamamoto caught fire, scoring twice for the Chiefs before the period ended to knot the game up at 2-2. “They got a lot of firepower up front with

Holmberg and Aviani— Holmberg has 50 goals and Aviani has 30, or something like that,” said Dirk. “So if we shut those two guys down, that’s a lot of their offence, but there are also other guys who can score, so we just got to keep playing as a team and do a better job in front of the net. “Tonight, we didn’t do a very good job, that’s how they were able to score their two goals.” Though both teams pressed for the equalizer in the third and OT periods, it remained a tie game.

The Ice saw a familiar face in the Spokane lineup this weekend, and vice versa. It was the first time the two teams played each other since a trade sent former Kootenay forward Hudson Elynuik to the Chiefs in exchange for defenceman Tyler King. Trades are a part of the business side of major-junior hockey, but Elynuik hasn’t missed a beat with his new surroundings. “Things are going really good,” said Elynuik. “I’ve had a great opportunity

given to me and I’m just trying make the best of it and it’s going well so far. “…A great team. I love the guys here, we got great leadership in the room and a great hard-working team and I think I fit in well here.” For Elynuik, it was a different feeling coming back to Western Financial Place, where he played 31 games in his rookie year with the Ice. “It’s weird coming back to where you’ve played before,” said Elynuik. “Those nerves start to kick in during the game and I tried to get in a few shifts to get rid of them. Just play the game—play hard and play smart.”

A golden defence for the Canadian men’s hockey team Stephen Whyno Canadian Press

SOCHI, Russia Team Canada’s best players brought their best game and left with gold. On the world’s biggest stage, Jonathan Toews and Sidney Crosby made good on their strong tournaments and controversial roster pick Chris Kunitz sealed the victory as Canada won its second straight Olympic gold medal in men’s hockey with a 3-0 win over Sweden on Sunday. Canada did not trail at any point in the final or over the course of the entire tournament and finished as the first undefeated gold medallist since the Soviet Union in 1984 in Sarajevo, beating Norway, Austria, Finland, Latvia, the United States and Sweden along the way. Until Sunday, Toews and Crosby were two of Canada’s best players through the first five games but did not have a goal to show for it. Canadian coach Mike Babcock brushed off concerns about a lack of offence from his forwards, figuring they would come but hoping the stars wouldn’t “run out of time.” “They’re leaders for a reason,” Canadian forward Jeff Carter said of Toews and Crosby. “They brought it every night.” Toews, who opened the scoring with a deflection in the first period, and Crosby, who beat Henrik Lundqvist on a breakaway in the second, delivered just in time. Putting up two goals meant Sweden would have had to score as many goals in the

third period as Canada gave up in its first five games of the Olympics. That defensive dominance continued against Sweden, which was without first-line centre Nicklas Backstrom, a late scratch due to a positive drug test. NHL stars accustomed to more offensive roles continued to display the kind of hard-working defensive intensity Babcock needed out of them, limiting Sweden’s scoring chances in the process. Goaltender Carey Price made 24 saves for his second straight shutout to cap off his impressive tournament in which he allowed just three goals in five starts.

“Our defence was great the whole tournament. The goalie was spectacular.” Patrick Marleau “Our defence was great the whole tournament,” said Canadian forward Patrick Marleau. “The goalie was spectacular.” Some members of the Canadian team smiled and hugged as the waited to be awarded their gold medals, but the players seemed as businesslike as they did on the ice throughout the tournament. Injured forward John Tavares wore a shirt and tie under his Canada jersey as he had his medal hung around his neck. Tavares was hurt in Canada’s 2-1 quarter-final win over Latvia and will miss the rest of the NHL season with the New York Islanders.

Yzerman steps down as Team Canada executive director C anadian Press

SOCHI, Russia - Steve Yzerman won’t be going for a third Olympic gold medal. Team Canada’s executive director says he will not lead the team into the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Yzerman built the team that beat Sweden 3-0 on Sunday to capture a second straight men’s hockey gold at the Sochi Olympics. He leaves his post after leading Team Canada to back-to-back gold medals for the first time since 1948 and 1952. He assembled one of the best defensive lineups ever to wear the Maple Leaf in Sochi as Canada gave up just three goals in six games. They shut out the Americans 1-0 in the semifinals before defeating Sweden in the final. When asked if the team in Sochi is the best defensive crew ever to represent Canada, Yzerman said “I believe so.”

Sweden’s players were largely stone-faced as they received their silvers, as if they had come to terms with the result before the final whistle. By beating Sweden, Canada became the first back-to-back gold-medal winner since the NHL began sending its players in 1998. It was the first time Canada won gold in two straight Games since 1948 and 1952. And this didn’t take a fortunate bounce Quality chances came fast and furious in the game’s first few minutes. Crosby generated the first one 57 seconds in when he batted the puck down and found Patrice Bergeron for a shot from between the circles that Lundqvist got in front of. Canada’s Jamie Benn and Sweden’s Niklas Kronwall traded shots before Bergeron picked off a pass from Johnny Oduya three minutes in and shot it right into Lundqvist. Sweden’s best chance of the first period was a minute later, when Gustav Nyquist’s shot from close range hit the left post behind Price. Canada’s starter looked behind him to see the puck inches from the goal line before covering it up. Bergeron continued his tremendous start by shooting off the shaft of Lundqvist’s stick and hitting the post 11 minutes in. That helped Canada turn the tide after being on the receiving end for a handful of shifts. It was the line of Marleau, Carter and Toews that has been together the longest that got Canada on the board at the

Team Canada celebrates their gold medal after defeating Sweden 3-0. 12:55 mark. Carter skated down the right wing almost to the goal-line and found Toews streaking to the net. Able to keep his stick free from Patrik Berglund, Toews got it on the puck and deflected it off the inside of Lundqvist’s right pad and in. With Martin St. Louis inserted onto the fourth line in place of Patrick Sharp, Canada generated a couple of scoring chances and got a power play after Matt Duchene drew a penalty on Swedish defenceman Jonathan Ericsson. Unable to score in those two minutes, Canada went on the kill late in the first into the second after a Kunitz high-sticking penalty and got the job done. Canada had the lion’s share of chances throughout the second period, save for a couple of opportunities by Loui Eriksson and Erik Karlsson, who came into the day tied for the tournament lead in scoring. Karlsson also made a

good stick check on Crosby to thwart the captain in open ice. But Crosby wasn’t going to be denied at the 15:43 mark, when he poked the puck away from Ericsson at Canada’s blue-line and blew right by Alexander Steen to get a breakaway. Crosby had just enough time to think, go backhand and bank the puck

off Lundqvist’s left pad an into the net. It didn’t have the drama of Crosby beating Ryan Miller for the golden goal in Vancouver four years ago, but as he raised his arms in the air it looked like Canada couldn’t be beaten on this day. Kunitz, who made the team because of his natural chemistry with

Crosby, did it all by himself to provide Canada with breathing room. Kunitz took the puck away from Daniel Sedin, skated over the blue-line and beat Lundqvist clean at the 9:04 mark of the third period. Because Canada gave up just three goals all tournament, that set off quite the celebration on the bench. 828C Baker Street Cranbrook, BC 250.489.4512

ANNIE’S MAILBOX by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: My son recently said something that embarrassed me and kept me awake most of the night. My wife and I were at his home for dinner, along with my daughter and several others. We were talking about TV, and my son mentioned a show where a guy does all kinds of things to save money. He said to my daughter, “If you think your daddy is cheap, you should see this guy.” I said nothing at the time because I didn’t want to spoil the occasion. But evidently, he and my daughter both think I am cheap. Annie, I put both of them through college, and so they don’t owe any money. I worked three jobs so my son could attend a prestigious university out East. They have never wanted for anything. It’s been three months, and I’m still hurting. Any advice? -- Disappointed Dad Dear Dad: No one wants to be thought of as cheap, especially by his own children. But we don’t think your son or daughter intended to be hurtful. What you consider sensibly frugal, they undoubtedly recall as you saying “no” to their innumerable requests for toys, gifts, vacations, etc., and how pleased you were when you saved a penny here and there. But please don’t let this fester, as it could damage your relationship with your children. Talk to your son and tell him how much his comment hurt you. We hope he’ll be more aware of your feelings in the future. Dear Annie: I have been a widow for three years. My husband was my first love, and we were married for 36 years. I have now met a man who seems similar to my late husband. I really like “Don,” but I worry that he only wants a caregiver. When we first met, I asked whether he had any health issues, and he said no. But after our second date, he started saying our relationship wasn’t moving fast enough. After a month, Don ended up in the hospital with a mild heart attack, for which he needed a stent. A week later, he was back in the hospital. I think Don lied to me about his health and is looking for someone to be a nursemaid. I like him, but I’m not willing to put forth that kind of effort for a man who has lied to me. I don’t mean to sound callous, but I don’t want to take care of a stranger. It is different when you have loved someone for a while, as opposed to walking into a relationship with someone who already has health problems. Am I doing the right thing by breaking it off, or should I go along and see what is ahead for us? I really am confused. -- Don’t Want To Be Saddled So Soon Dear Don’t: Heart attacks are generally unexpected, so unless Don was aware that he had heart problems, he may not have been lying about his health. And over time, health problems are more likely to arise in any relationship. However, we are more concerned that Don seems to be rushing things. You should never feel pressured to move faster than what makes you comfortable. If you enjoy Don’s company, there’s no reason not to continue seeing him, but make it clear that you are in no hurry. If he wants a caregiver, he should look elsewhere. Dear Annie: I read the responses to “I Need Nice Clothes, Too,” about large-size clothing selections. My complaint is about petite sizes for mature women. There is no selection at all. It’s as if we are being discriminated against because we are short. We like to dress fashionably. We wear coats, pajamas, slacks and dresses, but few stores carry petite sizes, and fewer still have clothing suitable for anyone over 12. I’m sure it’s the same problem for tall women. -- Warren, Ohio Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

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 Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Quitting. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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.

Top Ten Reasons to Advertise in a Newspaper

250-426-5201 ext 202


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, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a better chance of getting their business if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve continued to maintain a solid, reliable image.

5. Direct Advertising is Cost Efficient. Direct has the advantages â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in business, you have overhead and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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.

Call today and start advertising.
