Driver from Coleman named in mine death SALLY MACDONALD Townsman Staff

The man who died in a workplace accident at Teck’s Coal Mountain mine on Sunday has been identified as Miles Bradley Lorenz, 59, from Coleman, Alberta. The B.C. Coroners Service released the information on Tuesday, March 18. According to the coroner, Lorenz was a water truck driver. On Sunday, March 16, he

was filling his truck with water when he was hit by frozen rock that fell off a separate vehicle. He was transported to hospital in Blairmore, Alberta, but could not be resuscitated. The B.C. Coroners Service, the B.C. Inspector of Mines and the RCMP continue to investigate the death. Lorenz’s family has been notified of his death.

Heads: you get a worse recycling program. Tails: you get to pay more for it.

The BC Government is proposing to offload the province’s world-class recycling programs, run by local municipalities, to an association led by big multi-national corporations. The idea is that we’ll get a better, more efficient program that costs taxpayers less. Unfortunately, what we’ll really end up with is anyone’s guess. The association isn’t guaranteeing that we’ll get a better program, or even one as good as the current Blue Box program already in place. Since the association is led by big businesses outside of BC, many of whom are not even headquartered in Canada, one could presume that profits will come before environmental stewardship. They usually do. They also won’t guarantee that there won’t be any job cuts here in BC. And how is this supposed to make things better for BC?

Currently, BC homeowners only pay, on average, $35 a year for curbside recycling. Under the proposed regime, you’ll pay more. Every time you bring home a pizza, buy toilet paper, or pretty much anything else that comes in a package, businesses will be passing their increased costs on to you. How much more? Well, nobody’s saying. Here’s the only thing anyone does know: we already have a Blue Box program that works, is efficient, managed locally and puts the BC environment first. So why is the BC government flipping a coin, bringing in a questionable recycling program that some of our local elected officials are already calling a “scam?” It’s time to contact Premier Clark and ask her.

What’s going on here?

New school still high on MLA’s agenda Continued from page 1 The Feb. 21 meeting was attended by MP David Wilks, Regional District of East Kootenay board chair Rob Gay, Cranbrook Mayor Wayne Stetski, members of the School District 5 board of trustees, and members of the Key City Theatre Society. A replacement for the 60-year-old Mount Baker Secondary School has been on Cranbrook’s wish list since 2008. In December 2012, the school district, the city and the Key City Theatre Society signed a partnership agreement stating that a theatre would be included in the new high school, just as it is now. The B.C. government has not yet committed funding to replace the high school. Last month, those three partners reached out to the federal government and the regional district to discuss funding opportunities for the theatre portion of the project. According to SD5 Trustee, Chris Johns, while the provincial government is already

supportive of the project of replacing the school. In fact, I’m bringing the Minister of Education to the riding in the near future and I will take him through the school, as I have previous ministers,” he told the Townsman. But, he pointed out, the province’s first and second priorities for school capital projects are those requiring seismic upgrades, and areas where the school population is growing so rapidly that there are not enough classrooms. “Number three is school replacements where the schools have become old,” Bennett said.

“I know that Mount Baker, in that third category, is very high on the list. I will continue to try to move it up the list as best I can.” He supports including the Key City Theatre into the school replacement, however the province won’t be able to shoulder the cost of the theatre aspect. “While I would try to get some extra dollars for the theatre, they are going to be scarce, and we are all going to need to help raise the money that it will take to replace the theatre.” Key City Theatre Society chair Sandra Cave said that is why the group wanted to meet

interior health

Vaccinations important with measles outbreak C AROLYN GR ANT Kimberley Daily Bulletin

An outbreak of measles is occurring in the Fraser Valley Health Unit, confined mostly to the Chilliwack Aggasiz areas, although there has also been a case confirmed in Burnaby. Both Chilliwack and Agassiz have low rates of measles immunization. Medical Health Officer for Interior Health, Dr. Sue Pollock, says that there are currently no cases reported in the Interior Health region, but that may change. “I wouldn’t be surprised to see it spread,” Dr. Pollock said. “It’s spring break and kids are travelling throughout the province with their families.” Recent outbreaks in the Fraser Valley, and in Alberta, are being seen in the unvaccinated population. There is an effective vaccine for measles — about 88 per cent of kindergarten age children in

the IH area are immunized. “There is local variability,” Dr. Pollock said. “Some areas in Interior Health are above 90 per cent immunized and some are less than 80 per cent.” Dr. Pollock says there are three main reasons why some parents do not immunize their children. One, parents may object on religious or philosophical grounds; 2, parents may doubt the safety of the vaccine; or 3, they just haven’t got around to it. “It is a two-dose vaccine series,” she said. “We encourage people to check their own and their children’s immunization records to make sure that both shots were received.” IH advises everyone born since 1970 should be vaccinated. People born prior to that date were likely exposed to measles or had them. You can call your local health unit to make an appointment for a measles vaccine. In Kimberley,

that’s 250-427-2215; in Cranbrook, 250-420-2207. “We will certainly accommodate anyone looking to get their vaccine up to date,” Dr. Pollock said. Measles can cause encephalitis, an inflammation of the brain, which can lead to seizures, deafness or brain damage. Measles are highly contagious. Early symptoms are fever, cough, runny nose and red, inflamed eyes that are sensitive to light. A red blotchy rash appears three to seven days after fever starts, beginning behind the ears and on the face and spreading down to the body and then to the arms and legs. It can also present with white spots in the mouth. If you suspect that you or anyone in your family is ill with the measles, call the ER or doctor ahead of time to avoid exposing others.

with federal and regional politicans, especially since many of the theatre’s patrons are not from Cranbrook. “Over one-third of patrons are from somewhere else in the region, which is why we wanted

to meet with MP David Wilks and RDEK Chair Rob Gay,” she said. Cranbrook Mayor Wayne Stetski said the project would inject $50 to $60 million into the local economy. The project would also improve the social and cultural sustainability of the entire region. “This is the largest high school—and only full-size theatre—in the East Kootenay,” said Mayor Stetski. “This project will offer a first class educational and cultural institution not only for area residents but could also attract those who may consider relocating or retiring to the East Kootenay.” Johns, Cave and Stetski agree the meet-

ing went extremely well, with all parties clearly understanding the value of this initiative. “Rob Gay has invited us to present to the RDEK in April and to request support in securing federal grants with them, and while David Wilks can’t guarantee federal funding, he’s clearly stated his support for our partnership,” explained Johns. “David has already provided valuable information on new federal grants to which our partners may be eligible toward a new theatre build.” Johns, Cave and Stetski are looking forward to a working relationship with the RDEK to identify granting opportunities.

Local NEWS masterchef canada

Now a seasoned winner, Danielle is on a roll The local reality-show contestant is sittin’ pretty after winning a Mystery Box Challenge and sailing into the top eight

Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff


hat’s our girl! C r a n b r o o k ’s Danielle Cardozo has not only made it into the final eight contestants on MasterChef Canada, she did it after winning a doozy of a Mystery Box Challenge. Cardozo, who now works as a sous chef at the Heid Out, conquered the challenge after tackling a box full of exotic ingredients that smelt like dirty feet. Danielle starts the Monday, March 17 episode of CTV’s reality cook-off series on top, after making the best – in fact, the only decent – salmon Wellington in the previous episode. She tells the camera that

the recent wins have only increased the fire beneath her. I sure hope she’s being metaphorical, but you never know in the MasterChef kitchen. The nine remaining contestants are given 90 minutes to prepare a high-end meal from a list of ingredients found in the three judge-chefs’ kitchens. There are things in the mystery box you’d have a snowball’s chance in hell of finding in Cranbrook grocery stores – like white miso, pigeon and durian fruit (the smelly feet culprit). Danielle’s not phased (well, maybe a little rattled) and begins to craft a butter and pork basted monkfish with sea urchin veloute

(which I think is a fancy word for “sauce”), topped with chantarelle mushrooms and taro crisps. To use a phrase from my homeland, it looks real posh. In the top four meals. she’s up against Calgary’s Tammara Behl, Toronto’s Marida Mohammed and Kelowna’s Kaila Klassen. And she wins! “I had never cooked with any of those ingredients before. Not chanterelles, not monkfish, not sea urchin, or taro root. But that day I had a vision and was inspired!” Danielle told the Townsman. Danielle can’t wipe the smile from her face as the judges escort her into the MasterChef pantry, where she is

Cranbrook’s Danielle Cardozo (second from left) can’t hide her joy at winning a mystery box challenge. PUBLIC NOTICE TAKE NOTICE THAT The City of Kimberley intends to amend City of Kimberley Zoning Bylaw No. 1850, 1994.

A Public Hearing for Bylaw No. 2490 will be held on Monday, March 24, 2014 at 7:00 pm in the Council Chamber at City Hall, 340 Spokane Street, Kimberley, BC. If you believe that your interest in property is affected by the proposed bylaw, you may: 1.

able to construct a tough elimination challenge for her competitors. She’s given the choice of three classic Canadian desserts: butter tarts, blueberry grunt (what is that?!?) and the humble Nanaimo bar. Like a good B.C. girl, she chooses the Nanaimo bar. The other contestants then have to create a dessert using the deconstructed ingredients of the dessert. “I have to be honest when I say I am not personally a huge fan of any of the dessert options. But I knew right away that I was sticking to my B.C. roots with the Nanaimo bar. Not because of the B.C. connection, but because I knew it would be easy to overthink and forget to respect the three flavours and textures. It was a complex option,” Danielle said. She also tells the judges that she hopes the challenge will eliminate two of her tougher competitors – Marida

and Kaila. It seems only fair – Kaila has admitted several times that she’s trying to get Danielle out. Time to return the favour. Danielle then heads upstairs to the gallery where she can watch the other cooks sweat it out over baking. Cue evil cackle. “I feel like someone was watching over me because I probably would have went home if I had to bake that day. I have an amazing sister who taught me how to bake, but it’s never been without effort. Things can easily go wrong when you bake. Being able to bake is a major strength in this competition,” she said. Downstairs, the chefs are flinging chocolate around, forgetting how to make custard, and, in the case of Eric Chong, burning caramel not once, but twice as he sprints from stove to pantry like the Road Runner. Danielle’s plan is looking good as Marida,

with an apron that looks more brown than white from chocolate, tells the camera she’s never been so overwhelmed in the kitchen, and Kaila’s panna cottas melt into slop on the plate. Marida’s truffles do indeed land her in the bottom three, next to Vancouver’s Carly Tennant and Mississauga’s Pino Di Cerbo. It’s Carly who is sent home in a puddle of tears. As always, Kaila has a passing swipe at Dan-

ielle to end the show – pointing out that Danielle is on top now, but that means she has only one way to go. Danielle says she’ll get her next time. I sure hope so because that girl’s got to go. Tune into the next episode of MasterChef Canada on CTV on Monday, March 24. And you can watch the show at the Heid Out in Cranbrook, enjoying a dish Danielle prepared in that episode.

Bears are waking up, Parks Canada says CANADIAN PRESS

BANFF, Alta. — Officials at Banff National Park say the first bear of spring could be a sign that the long, cold winter may finally be on its way out. Banff resource officer Mike Grande says the 225-kilogram male grizzly was slowly making its way through deep snow when it was spotted by a rail crew a couple of days ago about 15 kilometres west of Banff. He says the animal still had plenty of winter fat, and, despite the heavy snow, was probably lured out of hibernation by warmer weather after months of below-average temperatures.

“In terms of an emergence, this is about as early as it normally happens. That’s not a bad sign for sure.’’ Grande estimates the bear bedded down in late December. Since bears can usually live off their fat stores for four or five months, this one was in pretty good shape after snoozing for only three months. The usual time to emerge from the den is early April. Female bears with cubs usually don’t risk venturing out until early May. The grizzly sighting is a reminder to the public that it’s once again bear season in the park and care must be taken, he said.

Green machine gathers in B.C.


anada’s sleek, imported green propaganda machine rolled into the capital last week for a couple of days of meetings. You wouldn’t have heard about it, because they didn’t stage any protests or press conferences. Instead they met quietly with selected reporters as well as politicians from both sides of the aisle. They didn’t invite me for some reason, but from what I can gather, it was a friendly networking session. When I speak of our U.S.-directed environmental movement, many people still don’t know what I mean. They see the sign-waving on TV and assume it’s all spontaneous, driven by passionate volunteers. Nuke the Whales for Jesus, as we used to joke in the 1970s. It’s an industry now, and as with our automotive industry, Canada is a branch plant of the U.S.  The Victoria event was an annual conference called Organizing for Change, sponsored by Tides Canada. Thanks mainly to the work of B.C. researcher Vivian Krause, this offshoot of the U.S. Tides Foundation now at least  identifies itself while it pulls B.C.’s political strings. Organizing for Change currently includes Ecojustice, Greenpeace, Sierra Club B.C., ForestEthics Advocacy, ForestEthics Solutions, Georgia Strait Alliance, Dogwood Initiative, Pembina Institute, West

Coast Environmental Law, Wildsight and Seattle-based Conservation Northwest. Tides is itself a front for wealthy charitable foundations based mostly in Seattle and California, funded by billionaires who see “saving” B.C. as their personal eco-project. Their hired activists met with Environment Minister Mary Polak to discuss her just-introduced Water Sustainability Act. This was to demand heavy fees and choking regulations on water used for “fracking,” that nefarious gas drilling technology so demonized in fake docBC VIEWS umentaries and celebrity protests. Tom Tides no longer attempts Fletcher to hide its strategy of targeting energy development in B.C. and Alberta. Its tactics are well  known, too. Environmentalists need high-profile wins, and the economic pain is best inflicted outside of the U.S., the biggest polluter in world history. Organizing for Change’s stated priorities for the year are the “last stand of the Great Bear Rainforest,” the “Sacred Headwaters” and the Water Sustainability Act. Professional protesters are mainly just taking credit for the 2012 buy-back of Shell’s coalbed gas licences around the headwaters of the Nass, Skeena and Stikine Rivers. Tahltan Central Council declared that territory theirs in 1910, and having pros roll in with slogans and graphics wasn’t exactly crucial to the outcome.


Their greatest marketing success so far is the Great Bear Rainforest, which is continually portrayed as being in peril from hunting, logging and of course, oil and gas development. One of the documents Krause unearthed is a 2008 plan entitled “Tar Sands Campaign Strategy 2.1” that has proven remarkably prophetic. As Greenpeace, Sierra and ForestEthics were negotiating the 2007 Great Bear land use plan, other network members were preparing to “raise the negatives” and market Alberta as a unique threat to planetary integrity. I’ve written before about the distortions and evasions required to present such a fossil fuel fairy tale. Suffice it to say that while we have busloads of protesters in B.C., you don’t see them in those benevolent petro-states Angola, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Venezuela, Kuwait or Algeria. They’re not saving the whole planet, just the safe and lucrative parts. And as I mentioned after the protester-staged Neil Young concert tour, it’s amazing how American oil and gas interests and Alaska oil tankers remain invisible to this sophisticated network.  NDP environment critic Spencer Chandra Herbert met with the green machine too. He wants all of B.C.’s groundwater mapped and measured deep into the Earth’s crust. That should take a while. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.

Homan running with leads at world curling championships DONNA SPENCER Canadian Press


YOUTH MOVEMENT: Members of the Kootenay Ice were put through their paces on Monday afternoon during a game of road hockey with some young fans up at the Home Depot parking lot.


Lieuwen shines in first Sabres start Former Ice goaltender makes 23 saves for Buffalo despite 3-1 loss to Calgary TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Former Kootenay Ice goaltender Nathan Lieuwen returned the the crease for his first career start with the Buffalo Sabres in a 3-1 loss to the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night. Lieuwen was solid in goal despite defeat, making 23 saves, while Mike Cammalleri, Paul Byron and Joe Colburne scored for the Flames. Drew Stafford opened the scoring with the lone effort for the Sabres, as Buffalo only put a meagre 14 shots on Flames goaltender Joni Ortio. Even though Lieuwen came up with some big saves, Calgary seemed to have a bit of luck on their side with a few goals. “Tough bounces, right?” Lieuwen told Aaron Vickers of NHL. com. “That’s part of hockey is the bounces. Sometimes players

make good plays and you tip your cap but at the same time you always want to get better to see what you can do to get better.” Stafford put the Sabres in the lead with a wraparound in the first period after a giveaway by Flames forward Ben Hanowski. Calgary opened it up in the second period with a flurry of offensive chances, but Lieuwen stood turned away every shot. Though Sabres head coach Ted Nolan took a timeout to calm things down, Colborne knotted the game up for the Flames with just over a minute remaining in the period. Cammalleri tipped a shot while stationed in front of Lieuwen in the third frame to pull the Flames ahead for a onegoal lead at 9:16. Four minutes later, Byron scored a back-breaking goal on a shorthanded breakaway to put the game out of reach for

RED DEER, Alta. - Jayden Hart scored once and set up two more as the Prince Albert Raiders downed the host Red Deer Rebels 5-3 on Tuesday to clinch the final Western Hockey League playoff berth. Tied for wins and points through 72 regular-season games,

Feltscher. “We played well, two solid games by our team,” Homan said. “We’re not playing 100 per cent, but we’re reading the lines and learning the lines when we need to.” Russia’s Anna Sidorova, South Korea’s Jisun Kim and China’s Liu Sijia were tied at 5-2. The Scots dropped to 2-5. Allison Pottinger of the United States was 3-4. Germany’s Imogen Oona Lehmann, Denmark’s Madeleine Dupont, Latvia’s Evita Regza and Anna Kubeskova of the Czech Republic were all 1-6. The top four teams at the conclusion of the round robin Thursday make the playoffs. Canada faces Germany and South Korea on Wednesday.

Knicks bring Phil Jackson back into the fold as team president BRIAN MAHONEY Associated Press


Former Kootenay Ice goaltender Nathan Lieuwen had his first NHL start with the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesdsay night against the Calgary Flames. Buffalo. Though it was his first start, Lieuwen had played for just over a period in his NHL debut on Sunday, stopping all 10 shots after replacing Jhonas Enroth, who was

injured mid-game during a 2-0 loss to the Montreal Canadiens. “It felt really good to get on the ice and be in that atmosphere,” Lieuwen said. “That experience, it was incredible.”

Raiders overcome Rebels to earn final playoff berth C ANADIAN PRESS

SAINT JOHN, N.B. Rachel Homan still hadn’t thrown a final stone for a win at world women’s curling championship Tuesday. At both the Canadian championships, where her team went unbeaten in 13 games, and at this week’s Ford World Women’s Curling Championship, even seeing her Canadian team in a 10th end has been akin to spying an exotic animal in the wild. With their ability to keep the front of the house clear and throw heavy weight shots with accuracy, the Ottawa Curling Club team has been virtually uncatchable when they’ve taken a lead. Their reward is opposing teams conceding before the 10th end,

with the exception so far in Saint John a loss to Switzerland on Sunday. Conversely, it was the Canadians shaking hands after eight ends in the face of a fourpoint deficit. But Homan went through the Scotties Tournament of Hearts and the first seven games of the world championship without making a game-winning throw in the 10th. Down 8-3 to Canada, Scotland’s Kerry Barr shook hands after nine ends Tuesday night. The Latvians also conceded after nine ends when they trailed the Canadians 8-4 in the morning draw. Canada capped the two-win day tied for first in the preliminary-round standings at 6-1 with Sweden’s Margaretha Sigfridsson and Switzerland’s Binia

the two clubs were forced to play a tie-breaker game for the eighth and final spot in the Eastern Conference. Josh Morrissey, Reid Gardiner and Dakota Conroy each had a goal and an assist for the Raiders, who won three straight games to jump over Red Deer. Collin Valcourt scored once.

Wyatt Johnson, Rhyse Dieno and Evan Polei supplied the goals for the Rebels, who will miss the playoffs for the second time in the past three seasons. Prince Albert’s Nick McBride made 27 saves for the win as Red Deer’s Patrik Bartosak turned aside 42-of-46 shots in defeat.

NEW YORK - Phil Jackson has returned to the New York Knicks as their team president. The Knicks announced Jackson’s hiring Tuesday at a news conference in the lobby of Madison Square Garden, where a giant sign reading “Welcome Home Phil” was overhead and shirts with the No. 18 Jackson wore as a player lined the racks in the merchandise store. Jackson signed a five-year contract that reportedly will pay him at least $12 million annually and said he will

spend significant time in New York. “This is the best place to play basketball,” Jackson said. Jackson was a member of the Knicks’ championship-winning teams in 1970 and 1973, but they haven’t won a title since. Jackson went on to become the league’s most successful coach, winning 11 championships with the Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Bulls. This will be his first time as an executive and the Knicks say he will be in charge of all basketball decisions. Madison Square Garden chairman James

Dolan said he “willingly and gratefully” is stepping back to give Jackson the power to make the changes the franchise needs. Steve Mills will remain as general manager. It’s the second front-office reorganization in six months for the Knicks, who surprisingly fired GM Glen Grunwald days before the start of training camp after he assembled most of the roster than won 54 games last season. Mills replaced him even though he had no previous experience running the basketball side.

HOROSCOPES by Jacqueline Bigar

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You could have a change of heart about an important matter after an open and revealing conversation with a loved one. Your perceptions could change radically as a result. New beginnings bring the possibility of financial gain. Tonight: Hang out with a loved one. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Others might reveal far more than you realize in a conversation. Having a delayed reaction and/or a need to rethink and evaluate your ideas would be natural. If you do not have all the information, how can you make a sound decision? Tonight: Go along with someone’s request. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Your feelings in the morning could change once you understand the depth of dealing with an older relative or a boss. Your carefree approach might bring less-than-desired results, which will require a push for change. Tonight: Incorporate a stress-reducing activity.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) You might have felt as if you wanted to retreat and start a project or interaction all over again. With a touch of imagination, you might find it unnecessary to go back to square one. Use your intuitive sense to open a door. Tonight: A loved one invites you into his or her world. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You are on top of your game. You know where you are heading and why. Communication will seem to dull in comparison to your creative thoughts. You’ll see possibilities where you previously might have thought there were none. Look to the long term. Tonight: At home. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Take a careful look at a financial matter, and know that you might need to get input from others. You could have one idea that seems very good, but you still need feedback. Others’ suggestions can only help. Be open to conversation. Tonight: Hang out. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Hopefully you have maximized


the past few days. Be willing to look at what all the recent activity means to you. An investment might go beyond being financial -- it also could be emotional. A partner will be intrusive in some sense. Tonight: Make it your treat! SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Listen to feedback, and understand what is happening behind the scenes. You might have had a quick glance, and now you have to look toward integrating some of this knowledge. Others will respond to you in a positive, caring manner. Tonight: Beam in more of what you want. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You could be off-kilter today. Understand what is happening with an investment, as vagueness seems to surround the issue. A partnership is likely to increase in importance to you. This person has many moneymaking ideas. Tonight: Togetherness is the theme. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You barely can deal with someone and his or her many needs. You could find it difficult to com-

plete a personal matter because of the intervention of others. Perhaps you need to establish boundaries more seriously, as others might not be hearing you. Tonight: In the moment. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Follow your instincts when dealing with a personal matter. Think in terms of getting together with a loved one. You will have an opportunity to catch up on news while also getting meaningful feedback. Tonight: Stop at the gym or get exercise some other way. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) A conversation keeps echoing in your mind. Detach from the small story or the minor details. Look at the implications involved. Thoughts are nice, but actions count -- no matter what you do or with whom. Tonight: Wherever you are, make sure there is music.

ANNIE’S MAILBOX by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I am a 13-year-old girl whose best friend (I’ll call her “Blue”) has become very rude and even annoying. I can no longer make a comment about something without her answering nastily or adding logic to imaginary scenarios that aren’t intended to be logical. It’s irritating. We have another friend, “Violet,” who is very creative and loves to draw. So do I. But when I showed Blue a picture I had done, she said, “Violet is way better than you are.” This hurt my feelings, and I was angry. When I consulted Violet, she said Blue had been rude and annoying to her, too. We don’t want to offend Blue or lose her as a friend, but frankly, we can’t handle her anymore. What should we do? -- Red in Nevada Dear Nevada: It’s not uncommon for those entering their teen years to behave in ways that are baffling, annoying or rude. Talk to Blue. Tell her how you feel. Explain that sometimes the things she says are hurtful. Don’t be angry or accuse her of anything. Just let her know how sad it makes you. We hope she will be more aware of these things in the future and care enough not to hurt you, but we can’t promise. Sorry to say, not all friendships survive this stage. Dear Annie: I had to write about your response to “Concerned Cousin,” who worries about two grandparents who take turns sharing the same bed with their 5-year-old granddaughter when they visit her home. You should have mentioned what happens when men are sleeping: They can have a wet dream or be stimulated by any dream and touch the person in bed with them, and it can lead to sexual touching while they are asleep. Grandpa should not share a bed with his granddaughter. Sexual molestation is rampant today, and it can start in even the most innocent of ways. Please re-address this letter in your column immediately. -- Wyoming Reader Dear Wyoming: We were saddened at the number of readers who seemed certain that all grandfathers (and apparently some grandmothers) are molesting their grandchildren, intentionally or otherwise. While parents need to be vigilant about these things, it is an insult to all grandparents everywhere to assume that all are pedophiles or lack self-control. While some grandparents (and parents, cousins, uncles, aunts and friends) are indeed untrustworthy, it is terribly hurtful to accuse all grandparents of such horrible things. Nonetheless, in today’s world, we certainly understand the parents’ concerns. We mentioned having the child use an air mattress or sleeping bag, which would be the preferred solution for those who want to be extra careful and worry that they cannot trust the grandparents. Here’s one more with a different perspective: Dear Annie: I’m so grateful my family did not think it weird or creepy for a young girl to sleep in the same bed as her grandfather. My sister and I slept at our grandparents’ house every weekend. We would alternate beds, one of us sleeping with Grandma and the other with Grandpa. Each child got oneon-one time with a grandparent, staying up late, giggling, talking and listening to amazing bedtime stories about growing up during the Great Depression. Grandma was a better storyteller, but the child with Grandpa got the fun of raiding the kitchen pantry for a midnight snack. I was about 11 when I no longer wanted to sleep in the same bed with either grandparent, but that was only because it wasn’t “cool” and I would rather stay up watching television. Silly me. I’m 38 years old now, and both of my grandparents are gone. But those great bedtime memories will be cherished all my life. -- Missing My Grandparents in Davenport, Iowa Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Only with a daily paper are you able to choose to do an ad and run with it in two days, and reach a sizable portion of the population, in a fairly mass, fairly broad and fairly fast way. That’s a set of qualities very few other media can match.” FOR DAILY DELIVERY OF YOUR LOCAL NEWSPAPER CALL US!

of retailers report that newspaper sites are efficient in assisting them in meeting marketing needs compared with other sites.

7. High profile: reports that, among top executives (CEO, CIO, CFO or owner/partner), Internet advertising ranked above over all other media measured for: “Where I prefer to find our about new products,” “Where I prefer to receive information about companies,” and “Where modern, up-to-date brands advertise.” At the same time, these early adopters of technology also skew younger than the traditional newspaper audience. Forty percent of online newspaper users are aged 18-35. 8. Reinforcement: Seventy-six percent of online newspaper users also read the newspaper in the past seven days, and repetition increases awareness. The Internet Advertising Bureau found that, by increasing the number of online banners from one to two per week, branding results on three key metrics increased 42 percent making online a great, inexpensive way to increase the branding lift of traditional campaigns. 9. Quality: Seventy-five percent of advertisers generally said newspaper Web sites’ advertising was as good or better than other Internet sites.

10. Mix: A variety of recent studies have demonstrated the power of online, when included in a mix with traditional media, to elaborate the brand message. Newspaper print and online products combined have the highest penetration and most desirable audience of any other local medium. SOURCE: Newspaper Association of America
