spirit at the Skate Park, the washrooms at the park have been vandalized. The washrooms were built with funds raised at McWhinnie Days. Kimberley RCMP CPl. Chris Newel says it appears someone crawled through a window overnight and damaged the toilet and door. The

washrooms will be closed until they are repaired. Newel also reports another spate of thefts from vehicles, most in residential neighbourhoods in Marysville. “People are going through vehicles at night and mostly taking loose change. C. NEWEL PHOTO However, Newel says this a good reminder to make sure The washroom is closed until

Barriers preventing more people from becoming organ donations are of increasing concern to organzations like the BC Branch of the Kidney Foundation. And that organization is taking steps to identify and deal with these barriers. The Foundation wants to know if you are an organ donor. If not, you can be, or maybe you think you are a donor and it turns out you’re not registered as one at all. “The gap between those saying they are registered and the official record is because B.C.’s organ donor registration process is misunderstood,” said Karen Philp, Executive Director of the BC Branch of the Kidney Foundation.” A recent Ipsos online survey, conducted in the last week of March, sought to find out how many B.C. residents were registered as organ donars. Fifty-one per cent of those surveyed answered yes. Yet only 19 per cent are actually

registered on B.C.’s organ donor registry. Representatives of the Kidney Foundation will be coming to Cranbrook in the fall, as part of a 10-community tour across the province. They will be asking British Columbians what they feel the barriers of getting a kidney transplant are. “I think it’s important for people to know that up to 50 people a year are dying while waiting for a transplant, and that’s only in B.C.,” Philps said. “It takes a lot of British Columbians to register to be an organ donor in order to help someone have a successful transplant — because not everyone can be a match.” The Kidney Foundation of Canada encourages anyone who thinks they registered through their driver’s licence,to check with the BC Online Organ Donor Registry, which can be accessed at www.kidney. To make donations to the Kidney Foundation go www. or call 1-800-567-8112.

New MBSS Principal hired Ba rry Co u lt e r

School District 5 has looked north to fill a key position in a Cranbrook school. The SD5 Board of Education announced Wednesday that Viveka Johnson will be taking over as Principal of Mount Baker Secondary School, effective August, 2014. Johnson is currently Principal of McKim School in Kimberley, School District 6. She will be taking over from current MBSS Principal Jason Tichauer, who will be serving as SD5’s new Director of School Learning. The SD5 announcement said Johnson has experience as acting District Principal of Special Education in School District 6 (SD6) and was the principal of a middle school

and alternate school in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta. She is trained in secondary education with an emphasis on math and science. “We’re confident that Viveka is up to the challenge given her broad educational experience and track record as a school and community leader,” said Frank Lento, SD5 Board Chair. “We’re very excited to welcome Viveka to our District.” “I’m very impressed with what Mount Baker has, and continues to provide, for its students especially given that the building itself is overdue for replacement”, says Johnson. “I look forward to collaborating with such quality staff and am excited to get to know the students and school community.”

Viveka Johnson Johnson says she’s also excited to be involved in the planning of a replacement Mount Baker/Neighbourhood Learning Centre (NLC) in the near future.

Anderson is Cranbrook’s new Water Smart Ambassador for the summer Free irrigation assessments will be available For the Townsman

The City of Cranbrook’s annual Water Conservation education initiative will see a new face at the helm this summer. Brittny Anderson has been hired as the official

Water Smart Ambassador for Cranbrook through into late August. Anderson will spend the summer months working with residents to help them learn about water conservation and to help




residents get the most out of the water they use each summer. “I am delighted to work with the community to reduce overall and more specifically peak water use, which occurs during the summer months,” Anderson said. “Frequently with a few slight changes water conservation can easily become second nature.” New this year will be the availability of free irrigation system assessments for both residential and commercial water customers. The public is encouraged to take advantage of the free assessments. Infor-

Brittny Anderson mation about how to sign up for an assessment will be made available in late May. “We are very excited

Provincial Health Officer urges vaccinations Measles outbreak declared again in Alberta, B.C. urges immunization C AROLYN GR ANT Bulletin Editor

This week (April 26 to May 3) is National Immunization Week in Canada and B.C.’s Provincial Health Officer Dr. Perry Kendell is urging parents to protect their families from preventable diseases. At the same time, the measles outbreak,

which was declared over in the Lower Mainland earlier this winter, is not over in Alberta. Alberta officially declared a measles outbreak in Calgary, Edmonton and central Alberta this week. This highlights the need, Dr. Kendall says, to encourage immunization in all parts of the province. “Protecting our children against diseases like measles, chickenpox, mumps, meningococcal meningitis, rubella, pertussis, influenza and polio, is as important as using an infant car seat or wearing a seat belt when driving,” he


said. In Alberta, immunizations are now being offered to babies ages six to 12 months, in an effort to protect them against the disease. Alberta Health is also urging children aged four and older who have not received their second measles shot to have it as soon as possible. Dr. Kendell says there are several factors at work that may cause parents to think immunizations are not necessary. “Paradoxically, the very success of childhood vaccination programs has led in some cases to complacency


Water Conservation Measures for City of Kimberley Residents OUTDOOR SPRINKLING •

Residents of properties with even numbered addresses should sprinkle or irrigate only on even numbered days.

Residents of properties with odd numbered addresses should sprinkle or irrigate only on odd numbered days.

Sprinkling and irrigating should be done between the hours of 4:00 am to 10:00 am AND 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm.

Automatic irrigation systems usually offer the option of activating sprinkling and irrigating at specified times. Optimum times are between the hours of 12:00 midnight and 4:00 am using the odd/even system described in Number 1 and 2.

All outdoor hoses should be equipped with working spring-loaded shut-off nozzles for any use by hand.

Hand watering of plants using a hose with a working spring-loaded shut-off nozzle or a hand-held container can be done at any time.

More frequent watering of newly laid sod or newly seeded lawns is expected. Please call City Hall and advise if you plan additional sprinkling for new lawns.

If additional information is required, please contact the Operations Services Department at City Hall – 250 427-5311, extension 213 or log on to our website (see address below).

THIS IS A VOLUNTARY PROGRAM AND YOUR COOPERATION IS GREATLY APPRECIATED. The City of Kimberley has hired, a student, for their Water Conservation program. This program will have a three pronged approach to water conservation. The student will educate residents about water conservation who are seen watering during the heat of mid-day or on off days. Secondly, greater awareness will be given to low flow showerheads and fixtures. Finally, commercial & residential water use audits will be conducted to help residents & businesses to reduce their water use. The City of Kimberley looks forward to working cooperatively with residents and businesses so that they can improve their water efficiency. The City of Kimberley would like to emphasize that these measures follow good gardening principles while going a long way to reduce water consumption. Over watering your lawn will drain nutrients away from the roots, promoting disease and infection and potentially damaging your root system. Additionally, those who choose to water their lawns in the heat of mid-day risk to lose over 50% of the water to evaporation and may burn their plants.

It’s National Immunization Week and the province is urging parents to immunize their children. (“these illnesses are no longer there for us to worry about”), a “free-rider” syndrome (“if enough other people get their kids vaccinated, my kids will be okay”), deep misunderstandings about how vaccines and the immune system work (“vaccines will overwhelm my baby’s immune system”) and more sadly, to misin-

formation from medical charlatans and misguided celebrities. “The bottom line is that if more people get vaccinated, more will be protected from getting these preventable diseases, but it takes a collective effort. We estimate that depending on the disease, immunization rates of between 85 and 95 per cent are required to

develop community immunity. There are still regions in B.C. that fall substantially below these levels.” Dr. Kendell says vaccines present very, very low risks and a great deal of protection offered by them. “For example, there is a one in one million risk of a severe allergic reaction to a vaccine that prevents measles,

but the risk of encephalitis to an unvaccinated child or adult who gets this potentially life-threatening disease is over 300 times higher.” Vaccinations are available for free through any public health clinic. Any adult born after 1970 should also make sure they are vaccinated. “To prevent outbreaks like recent ones in B.C., all of us need to ensure our immunizations are up to date,” Dr. Kendell said. “To eliminate these diseases altogether - as we have done with smallpox - requires a collective effort from all British Columbians. Because of immunization, our children have grown up largely without the devastating effects of some of our most virulent diseases that damaged families just a generation ago; but decreasing immunization rates can put this success at risk. I encourage everyone to learn the facts and get immunized.”

Philippines Shelterbox life stories For the Bulletin

Fernie’s ShelterBox Response Team (SRT) member, Andre Bloemink, shared his recent activities with an appreciative audience at the Kimberley Rotary luncheon on Wednesday April 23, 2014. Andre has recently returned from Cornwall, England, where he helped to mentor twelve newly recruited SRTs from various European and Asian countries during a nine day training session. Andre has also recently spent three weeks  in the Philippines providing life changing shelter and supplies to hundreds of the over 7800 families who suffered from the November 8, 2013 Haiyan Typhoon. Mr. Bloemink’s previous deployment experience was in the Peruvian Andes assisting with the after effects of flooding and landslides in April 2012. Due to his hand-on experiences Andre provided invaluable tips and recommendations to the new enthusiastic male and female recruits. Time in the UK was also spent on reviewing the operational successes and weaknesses during the world’s record breaking storm affecting 14,000,000 including 6,000 deaths. How and where can we improve? Andre’s personal pictures and videos were supported by real individual stories of real families whose pride and culture gave them hope and great appreciation of the help and dignity provided by unknown donors from far away. The Beneficiaries asked Andre to please thank you all for giving him the tools to save thousands like themselves. While on deployment, SRTs must recruit local in-country volunteers to assist in the deployment of shelter tents and critical supplies to the most needy in the fastest manner. Andre gave high praise to local Filipino volunteers for their work ethic and organizational skills.  Following their basic tent construction training, local teams of four were erecting one ShelterBox tent every 15 minutes. The SRTs usually had a posse of children following them every day cheering them on, always laughing and waving to their new saviours. It is these memories of the Filipino expe-

Wetlands Keepers workshop at St. Mary Lake Register before May 15 For the Bulle tin

Wetlands are some of the most biologically natural ecosystems on earth. The St. Mary Valley Rural Residents Association is sponsoring a Wetlands Keepers workshop on July 25, 26 and 27. While that is some time in the future, organizers would like people to sign up by May 15 in order to give them an idea as to how many will be taking part. The association has completed four years of monitoring water quality on the rience which are most endearing, the ability to smile and laugh in the face of so much destruction. Many questions followed Andre’s presentation. How does Andre get approval from his employer to take time off from work to assist at a disaster? In the summer Andre works in Sales for the Fernie construction company, Larsen Whelan Enterprises. During the winter he works as a Ski Guide for the cat skiing company, Fernie Wilderness Adventures. In both cases his employers fully appreciate what his volunteer efforts do for others and cover for him in his absence. He has no idea on where his next deployment will take him. After seeing how the typhoon took away all the shade after the tops of palm trees were blown off, he added that our tents are used as both hospitals and schools to shelter both patients and students. Keeping children in school keeps them active and out of potential trouble. The current greatest continuing challenge for ShelterBox is the Syrian Crisis. ShelterBox has provided aid for over 4,400 families in Syria, Iraqi Kudistan, Lebanon and Jordan. We continue to work in the region aiming to assist a further

5,000 families. It has been over three years since the conflict in Syria began. Currently there are 2.5 million refugees and this number is expected to double by the end of 2014. Now, one-quarter of Lebanon’s population is Syrian refugees. Here again ShelterBox is supplying special school boxes to keep the children and their teachers active. Additionally, Zimbabwe has recently had thousands of families forced from their homes due to mass flooding. Eight hundred tents have been distributed by our

implementing Partner, the International Organization for Migration on behalf of ShelterBox. A ShelterBox costs $1000 each which includes all transportation costs to anywhere in the world. Donations are gratefully accepted online at shelterboxcanada. org; at the Kootenay Savings Credit Union (cheques payable to Kimberley Rotary Club); or you can also donate to a ShelterBox jar at Grubstake Pizza. For any questions contact Graham Mann at 250-4275057 or at


CEMETERY OPERATIONS Please be advised that during the spring and summer seasons (May 15 – October 15) families and/or friends are kindly asked to remove any grave decorations, wood crosses, shepherds hooks, glass, pottery, or china items from the Kimberley and Marysville cemeteries. This is to assist in seasonal cemetery maintenance and grass cutting operations. Any items remaining on grave spaces after May 15 will be collected by the cemetery caretakers and placed on the tables at the service building. Families are permitted to place flowers on grave spaces during the summer. The container should be non-breakable and be a part of the grave marker. THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION.

St. Mary River and has completed a Lake Management Plan for St. Mary Lake. This workshop is the next step in the group’s concern about water quality and protection in the St. Mary Valley watershed. The purpose of the workshop is monitor and map one of the wetland areas at St. Mary Lake by examining aerial photographs and topographical maps and assessing soil, plants, birds and amphibians in the wetlands. It will train and equip volunteers to map other wetlands in the valley. The information gathered in this workshop will be up-

loaded to the B.C. Wetlands Atlas and become part of the pubic information record. The Wetlands Keepers workshop has been developed by the B.C.

’ll have you know that I seldom feel my age of a full half-century and change. I still consider myself to be enjoying the full flush of youth (all right, the outside edge of it). Just a young guy starting out in life. But then something will occur or come to mind that makes me feel that I’ve lived a very long time indeed. For instance, to coincide with the current measles outbreak (the largest in B.C.s history) and now another in nearby Alberta, my immunization history card arrived in the mail, swimming up through all those decades like a bottom-feeding fish in the lake of memory. A relative found it in a box and sent it to me. Suddenly I feel just as one who was born during the John Diefenbaker years should feel. The blue card is creaky with age, like a soldier’s paybook from World War I. It is inscribed with my late mother’s elegant cursive handwriting and various stamped dates from the Saskatchewan Dept. of Public Health, starting in 1962. The card informs me that as an infant, I had almost more vaccinations than you can shake a stick at — for smallpox (‘62 and ‘68), diptheria, pertussis, tetanus and polio (10 times, ‘62 through ‘78); I also received oral polio vaccinations five times, ‘62 through ‘78. (I also received a tetanus booster shot in Calgary in 1998. This was the only medical attention I received when I was taken to a very crowded, chaotic Foothills Hospital after being hit by a car). So for this week — National Immuniza-

tion Week — I am aware of my vaccination history down to the smallest detail. But perhaps the most interesting aspect of this old blue card is the list of socalled “childhood diseases” I had. I had them all. Red measles in 1965, chicken pox when I was in Grade 1, German measles (rubella) in the summer of 1971, and later in that same summer the mumps — the famous mumps (my mother and I Barry actually had mumps at the same time). Coulter The tactics of infection back then weren’t as extreme as you hear about — like deliberately sending one’s children to contact the disease from another infected kid, to “get it over with,” but it was close. We all turned up as per normal at the little country school we attended and waited to catch whatever was going around. If we suspected we were coming down with the mumps, the teacher would make us do the pickle test. You chomped down on a pickle, and if this hurt your jaws you likely had the mumps and were sent home straight away. I remember really wanting to catch the mumps, so I could have the week or two off school. With my usual superb timing, I caught both the measles and the mumps during summer vacation. I lay in bed for days, my jaws wrapped up, watching the one channel of TV available to us back then. My, what a long time I’ve lived. Nowadays, of course, a concerted attempt to wipe out these childhood diseases appears to be on the edge of success — thinking in terms of a half-century, of


course. Some would say that the fact that B.C. is experiencing its biggest measles outbreak in history is a sign of the edge of failure. But the point is that whereas 50 years ago a kid was practically assured of getting measles, as part of life, these days a case of measles is rare, the outbreak in the Lower Mainland and Alberta notwithstanding. The arguments against immunization have been raised since the days of Edward Jenner, who developed smallpox vaccine. I can understand how such a process can create suspicion. Whatever one thinks about Andrew Wakefield and his troubled “science” in 1998 (his research linking vaccination and autism was proved to be fraudulent), there’s something counter-intuitive about protecting oneself against a disease by injecting one’s body with a substance associated with that disease. But then again, the last case of smallpox appeared in the world in 1978. It no longer exists. I was the last generation to have been vaccinated for smallpox. No one would willingly expose one’s kids to smallpox, “to get it over with.” Or polio — frighteningly common two generations ago, now on the verge of being wiped out too. Why shouldn’t we eliminate these “childhood diseases,” render them historical only? What purpose do they serve? Does contacting mumps as a child make us stronger adults? Does chicken pox purify the blood? A society free of disease would be a sign that society is moving towards an ultimate good.

Cranbrook Trails

news/opinion Letters to the Editor

Last week I was given an extensive tour of the ATV and 4WD trails and routes east of Cranbrook. These trails showed evidence of both hiker and biker use also. Cranbrook residents are lucky to have these public lands. Shame upon the people who have littered these areas with their debris. They’re using the areas for refuse dumps, while having access to your city’s fine garbage disposal facilities, shows no respect for other people nor the lands. Should an organization, headed up by reliable folks, undertake to clean up the areas, I will donate $200 to assist them in their efforts. Herb Green Smithers


In response to Mario Scodellaro, re: “Taxpayers”, I am pleased to clarify a number of concerns he raised:
 • The west entrance to Cranbrook was in need of a fix. While beauty is in the eye of the beholder, the rocks reflect the area in which we live — the Rocky Mountains. The designer of the sign also pointed out that while we live in the mountains, our strength is our people. The rocks were chosen individually and two have faces in them to reflect that strength. The metal sign is indeed low maintenance, the red wording for Cranbrook stands out in the day, and is very visible at night.  We have planters all around town, and it is the intention to beautify wherever possible. This entrance is one of two first impressions that visitors have of our city.
 • The current Committee Terms of Reference are driven by Council (top down).  The Family and Community Services Committee met with CAO Staudt and Mayor Stetski where it was clarified that a Committee, through the Chair or the sitting Councillor, can ask Council for permission to take on an issue, or research to bring back to Council for their consideration, which is what I did.  This Committee wanted to research and explore the current physician shortage in our area.  Perhaps Mr. Scodellaro has a doctor.  However, in a few short months there will be approximately 3,300 people in the Cranbrook area without a physician.  This is a concern to me, and the members of our Committee.  Council gave us permission to pursue it by a majority vote.  The results of our findings will also be shared with the EK Division of Family Practice at their monthly meetings, which I have also been attending.  Creative solutions are in order.

 • The 2nd Street repairs planned from the highway to 14th Avenue are expected to be done in phases as funding is

available, which is rather unlikely this summer. The underground infrastructure on this street has been identified by staff as being a very high priority.  Replacing our infrastructure the same way we have always done will no longer meet the needs of changing and sometimes extreme weather events, so we are doing our due diligence and looking at alternatives that are proven to work elsewhere.  Since 2nd Street is a main route to the hospital, Mt. Baker Campground, Spirit Square, and our downtown, beautification is also a consideration.

 • The 10th Avenue improvements from Baker St. to 1st Avenue were implemented by the previous Council.  The intention was to make the downtown more walkable and sociable. While vehicles are accommodated, the result is slower moving traffic, making it safer for pedestrians.
Hopefully, I’ve been able to address some of the concerns for Mr. Scodelarro and your readership.

 Sharon Cross Cranbrook City Councillor


My thanks to Mr. Scodellaro for his letter in the April 24 issue of the Townsman raising questions about Cranbrook’s transit system. I always appreciate the opportunity to provide more information to the citizens of our great little city. Having transit in Cranbrook is important, particularly for students, seniors and those who do not own an automobile. It is also a selling point for people looking to move here. The challenge is to get more people using buses. One way Council is supporting transit is by approving free bus service to downtown from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturdays from

June 28 to October 4, to encourage participation in the Farmers Market and the Spirit Square Summer Sounds Concert Series, and to get citizens out using the buses. Mr. Scodellaro is right – it is expensive. The City pays 53 per cent of the costs of the conventional bus service and 33 per cent of Paratransit with our partner, BC Transit, paying the balance. This means we will pay $535,000 for our share of conventional bus service and $92,550 for Paratransit from local tax dollars for 2014/2015, after deducting the revenue. We keep all revenue, which is projected to be $235,000 from regular bus services, and $15,139 from Paratransit. The more riders there are, the less tax money is required to subsidize the service. The forecast for 2014/2015 is 214,284 riders for conventional and 7,409 for custom (Para) transit. The good news is that ridership has increased every year since service commenced in December 2000. One of the things that still troubles many of us is seeing relatively large buses carrying relatively few passengers outside of peak hours. In the last two years we have met annually with BC Transit, and each time I have said to them that we need smaller buses included in our fleet. Last fall they advised us that our five buses are locked into lease arrangements that began in 2000 or 2002 and don’t expire until 2018 (one bus) and 2019 (four buses). I said that was unacceptable and asked them to consider us as a pilot community to test smaller buses and to look for opportunities to swap for smaller buses with communities that might need larger ones. In a follow-up phone call this spring, BC Transit said that they are working hard to try to get us smaller buses by 2016. I assured them that earlier would be even bet-

ter. Having smaller buses should reduce costs at least a little and reduce their environmental impact, while increasing the happiness quotient for many of us who check every bus that goes by to see how many people are riding! As I said at the beginning, having a transit system in Cranbrook is important. You have a role to play by giving transit a try, or by buying a sheet of bus passes and giving them to family and friends (Santa brought my kids some in their stockings last Christmas), or by buying passes, which are available at City Hall, and giving them to Street Angels, the food bank, or to families who have no other means of transportation. When you really think about it, we can use transit to bring our community together in many ways… Mayor Wayne Stetski Cranbrook

The Courts

I have been extremely disturbed recently by rulings coming out of both the provincial and federal courts that are overturning decisions/leglislation of both levels of government. No matter what side of the political sphere you happen to be on, I think we should all be concerned that an unelected, elitist bunch of academic members of the legal profession are able to overrule our elected governments. The one that really disturbs me is the overrule on the elimination of the credit of one and a half for time served while awaiting trial. We appear to be heading towards supreme autocracy of the courts in our wonderful country, but what can we do about it? Neil Matheson Cranbrook

Wild, nasty series expected between Habs, Bruins BILL BEACON Canadian Press

BROSSARD, Que. Carey Price knows what to expect when the Montreal Canadiens play the Boston Bruins in the playoffs. “Both rinks are going to be loud and probably obnoxious,” the Canadiens goaltender said Wednesday. “We’ve been in this situation before.” The Canadiens and Bruins will face each other in the post-season for a record 34th time when their NHL Eastern Conference semifinal opens Thursday night in Boston, and this one promises to be as nasty and closely contested as ever. As is the tradition, it pits a bigger, more physical Boston team against a Montreal side built on quickness and puck pressure. The Bruins are favoured after finishing first overall in the NHL with 117 points, but the 100-point Canadiens won three of their four regular season meetings and have a history of dashing the Bruins’ dreams in the post-season. Montreal is 24-9 against Boston in playoff series, including 18 in a row from 1946 to 1987, although the Bruins have won seven of

the last 11, including the last two in 2009 and 2011. “It’s a good rivalry,” said Canadiens winger Max Pacioretty. “We always have fun playing against them. “They play a completely different kind of game than us.” Montreal has a way of driving the Bruins crazy, as they stick to playing hockey and refuse to get involved in skirmishes. Key bruins like Zdeno Chara and Milan Lucic have been put off their game by chasing after targets like P.K. Subban and Brendan Gallagher, who have been known to taunt opponents. That’s why Pacioretty said a key for the Canadiens will be maintaining discipline. “They’re a big team. They like to play really physical,” he said. “When we just worry about our game and don’t let the stuff after the whistle affect us, when we walk away from that, we’ve had good opportunities to win games against them. “Obviously, they’re going to be smart too in the playoffs and won’t be taking as many penalties as in a regular game, but we have to focus on our game and not them.” Both teams wrapped up the first round early and will be rested. Montreal swept the young Tampa Bay Lightning, while Boston needed five games to dispatch the Detroit Red Wings. It may be in Boston’s favour that they are coming off a series against a team that plays a similar brand of hockey to Montreal.

Reinhart named WHL Player of the Year Kootenay Ice captain also earns most sportsmanlike honours during league awards ceremony TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Kootenay Ice captain Sam Reinhart is the WHL Player of the Year. Reinhart, who is in his third year in the league, scored 36 goals and tallied 105 points while leading his team to Game 7 in the second round of the playoffs.

“It’s a huge honour,” Reinhart told the crowd as he accepted his award. “The talent that’s in this league is amazing.” While accepting the award, Reinhart also referenced the support of his teammates and management, and also singled out Tim Bozon for his inspiring recovery from meningitis. In addition to Player of the Year, Reinhart also picked up the Most Sportsmanlike Player, going up against Mitch Holmberg of the Spokane Chiefs on

both counts. Reinhart tallied all of 11 minutes in penalties over the course of the regular season, and two in the playoffs. “I’ve always taken pride in trying to play smart and play the right way,” said the Kootenay Ice captain. Reinhart set a franchise record with a 22-game assist streak, and raised the bar for single season assists at 69, breaking the previous record set by Jarret Stoll. He ended the year with a plus-24 rating in 60 games. He factored into 45 per cent of Kootenay’s offensive production and was held off the scoresheet only nine times—all nine of which ended in a loss for the Ice. In addition to his stellar performance on the scoresheet, Reinhart also represented Canada at the IIHF World Junior Championship and played in the CHL Top Prospects game. The Ice have been represented at the WHL awards ceremony for the last three years. Reinhart was up on stage two seasons ago to pick up Rookie of the Year honours, while head coach Ryan McGill took Coach of the Year honours during the 201213 campaign. He is ranked as the third overall North American skater in the final Central Scouting rankings leading up to the NHL Draft in June.

Sportsmanship, safety and better game flow target of new CFL rules Scott Edmonds Canadian Press

Kimberley’s Bavarian Barbarians went head to head against the Cut Throat Carhops during the first East Kootenay Roller Derby League bout last weekend.

Roller derby back in action Tre vor Cr awley Sports Editor

Roller derby is back. The East Kootenay Roller Derby League kicked off their first event of the 2014 season with three regional teams and one out of Calgary going head to head at an arena in Canal Flats. In front of 100 spectators, the Bavarian Barbarians went up against an experienced crew out of Alberta, the Cut Throat Carhops.

Veteran jammer Stroker came out strong for the Barbarians, with her blockers dishing out and absorbing some hard hits, one of which sent Ruby Ka-Boom to the bench with a bloody nose. Though the Kimberley team put up a good scrap, the Carhops used their speed and size to come out with a 228-73 win. In the second match of the night, the 2012 EKRDL champions—the Invermere Killer Rollbots—went up against the new

Wildcat Brawlers out of Elkford. Despite being new to the sport, the Brawlers have some great talent supported by tough blockers. However, the Rollbots leaned on their experience and won by a score of 221-129. Next up for the league is another bout in Invermere on May 10, which will feature matchups between the Bavarians and the Brawlers, while the Rollbots will go up against the East Side Wheelers out of Alberta.

Archrivals to meet in Champions League final Associated Press

LONDON - A season of the unexpected for Atletico Madrid will end with a shot at a first Champions League title against its fiercest rival. Having disrupted the established order of power in Spanish football, the capital’s second club successfully negotiated its first European Cup semifinal in 40 years on Wednesday, overwhelming Chelsea 3-1 to setup a meeting with Real Madrid. “They’re a very powerful club used to those big European nights,” Atletico coach Diego Simeone said. “It’s been many years for us as a club, so it’ll be a new experience. But we’re keen and excited.” His side will also be undaunted by the prospect of facing the ninetime winners in the competition’s first derby final. Simeone’s side could be taking the Lisbon turf on May 24 as

champions of Spain for the first time since 1996. Just two wins are required from the final three domestic matches to break up the Barcelona-Real Madrid stranglehold on the trophy. “Playing like we play we are the strongest team in the world,” Atletico midfielder Tiago said. “And we deserve what we have in this moment.” Although former Atletico striker Fernando Torres put Chelsea in front at Stamford Bridge

after a scoreless first leg, Adrian Lopez levelled before halftime and Diego Costa netted a penalty on the hour before Arda Turan capped the visitors’ second-half superiority with the third. “We completely controlled the game against a great side,” Simeone said through a translator. It was a fourth successive semifinal loss for Jose Mourinho since winning the competition in 2010 with Inter Milan, after previous setbacks

at Real Madrid before returning to manage Chelsea last year. Without Mourinho, Madrid has ended a 12year wait to reach a Champions League final after trouncing holder Bayern Munich 4-0 on Tuesday and 5-0 on aggregate. After seeing Chelsea win the 2012 Champions League and 2013 Europa League from afar, Mourinho’s first season back at the club could now end without a trophy.

NBA owners committee to hold first discussions on Sterling removal C anadian Press

NEW YORK - The NBA owners’ advisory and finance committee will hold a meeting Thursday to discuss the next steps in the removal of Donald Sterling as owner of the Los Angeles Clippers. The 10-member committee will have a conference call two days after Commissioner Adam Silver banned Sterling for life from the league and

fined him $2.5 million for making racist comments. Silver also said he would urge owners to use their power to force Sterling to sell the team. That would require the support of three-fourths of the league’s owners in a vote. Silver said Tuesday during a news conference that he was confident he had the votes, which appears true given the numerous statements of support that were released by teams.

WINNIPEG - Players aren’t the only people on the field who will be held to a higher standard this season, as the CFL’s new vice-president of officiating says the men in stripes will also be held to account. “We want to make sure that the officials are as prepared as they can be,” Glen Johnson said Wednesday. “We’re improving all of our training and development efforts. We’re trying to evaluate them more consistently. We’re going to make officials accountable for their performance.” He said those who perform the best on the field will work the most, and the evaluation won’t just include the

usual crop of retired officials but will also include selected groups of coaches asked to provide feedback. Johnson spent 24 years as a referee and head referee in the league before being appointed to this new position in December. The league’s board of governors will be voting May 8 on proposed new rules this season and Johnson is currently touring all CFL cities to meet with teams and discuss those as well as other issues, such as a move to codify infractions more clearly in simple language. He said officials, players and coaches will know with more certainty what is and what isn’t going to draw a flag.

The proposed rule change that has drawn the most attention so far is a plan to make defensive pass interference subject to challenge and review by video replay but Johnson says there are many more. “There’s player-safety related ones where we’re eliminating some illegal low blocks. I think that’s going to have a really positive impact on the game. Keeping players safe and healthy and having them play more is a good thing.” Others are designed to improve game flow, such as not stopping to allow defensive substitutions if there are no offensive substitutions. “I think you’re going to see a higher tempo,” says Johnson.

Final three teams close out first round of NHL playoffs Associated Press

KINGS 5 SHARKS 1 SAN JOSE, Calif. - Anze Kopitar scored the tiebreaking goal late in the second period and Jonathan Quick made 39 saves to cap the Los Angeles Kings’ historic comeback from three games down with a 5-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks in Game 7 of their first-round series Wednesday night. Drew Doughty, Tyler Toffoli, Dustin Brown and Tanner Pearson also scored for the Kings, who became the fourth NHL team to win a best-of-seven series after losing the first three games. The Kings joined Toronto (1942), the New York Islanders (1975) and Philadelphia (2010) as the only teams to complete that comeback and now will get another California showdown in the second-round with the first Freeway Playoff against the Anaheim Ducks. Matt Irwin scored the lone goal and Antti Niemi made 25 saves for the Sharks, who added perhaps their most bitter playoff disappointment to a history of them. San Jose has the second most regular-season wins in the NHL the past 10 seasons but has never made it past the conference finals. WILD 5 AVALANCHE 4 DENVER (AP) - Nino Niederreiter scored his second goal of the game at 5:02 of overtime and Ilya Bryzgalov made a big save filling in for an injured Darcy Kuemper, leading Minnesota to the victory in Game 7. It’s the first playoff series win for the Wild

since 2003. Minnesota trailed 4-3 before Jared Spurgeon scored on a nifty play with 2:27 left in regulation. Spurgeon waited for a clear look at the goal, and then shot it over Semyon Varlamov’s shoulder and off the left post. Mikko Koivu and Dany Heatley had the other goals for the Wild, who will face the defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks in the second round. Nick Holden, Jamie McGinn, Paul Stastny and Erik Johnson scored for the Avalanche. Patrick Roy’s first season on the bench for the Avalanche ended the same way his Hall of Fame goaltending career did - with a loss to the Wild in Game 7. Roy surrendered the winning

overtime goal in 2003. RANGERS FLYERS

2 1

NEW YORK (AP) - Daniel Carcillo and Benoit Pouliot scored second-period goals, and the New York Rangers advanced to the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs with a 2-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 7 on Wednesday night. The Rangers shook off a 5-2 thrashing in Philadelphia on Tuesday and knocked out the Flyers about 24 hours later, improving to 6-0 in Game 7s at Madison Square Garden. New York will face another Metropolitan Division rival,

the Pittsburgh Penguins, in the next round starting on Friday. Henrik Lundqvist made 26 saves, allowing only a third-period goal to Jason Akeson 4:32 into the final frame. He protected the one-goal lead at 7:25 when he made an awkward save against Flyers captain Claude Giroux. The Rangers mobbed Lundqvist after the final buzzer, while the Flyers consoled their goalie Steve Mason. Mason, who didn’t start until Game 4 because of injury, was sharp in stopping 31 shots, but he couldn’t will his club to a complete comeback after the Flyers fell into a 3-2 series hole. The Flyers dropped to 9-7 in Game 7 after winning their previous three.

Raptors beat Nets 115-113 to take series lead Lori E wing Canadian Press

TORONTO - Kyle Lowry scored on an awkward, lurching 31-foot buzzer-beater just before halftime Wednesday, a circus shot that left him sprawled, grinning on his stomach on the Air Canada Centre floor. The Raptors very nearly spoiled what was the point guard’s finest performance - in a playoff series full of them - while holding on for a 115-113 victory over the Brooklyn Nets. Lowry poured in 36 points in the victory that gave the Raptors a 3-2 lead in their best-of-seven playoff series.

“He is great, he did a great job,” Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. “But this game tonight, we have got to learn from it because there are so many learning experiences from tonight’s game. Having the lead, (handling) prosperity, embracing the pressure. “Kyle. . . 36 points is huge. Huge for us.” DeMar DeRozan added 23 points, while Jonas Valanciunas finished with 16 and Greivis Vasquez added 15. Amir Johnson chipped in with 11 points for the Raptors who gave up a 26-point lead in the fourth quarter, making for some tense moments at the ACC, but

held on for the victory. When asked to describe the emotions of a fourth quarter that saw the Nets score 44 points, Casey answered: “You wouldn’t want to hear it.” The series heads back to Brooklyn’s Barclays Center for Game 6 on Friday, and a victory there would send them to a second-round series against the Miami Heat. A Game 7, if necessary, would be Sunday in Toronto. The Raptors controlled the game through the second and third quarters, when it seemed they could do no wrong, and led by 26 points twice late in the

third. They headed into the fourth up 91-69 and appeared poised to cruise to an easy victory, but the Nets had plenty of fight left, tying the game at 101 on a three-pointer by Joe Johnson with 3:16 to go, stunning the crowd. Lowry drained the go-ahead three and then scored on a driving hook shot to put Toronto up by three points with 27 seconds left. A three and foul shot by Anderson pulled the Nets to within a point, but Andray Blatche - with Lowry running right at him turned the ball over on a backcourt violation sealing the Raptors’ victory.

daily townsman / daily bulletin

features It happened this week in Cranbrook

Week of April 27 through May 3 Dave Humphrey Items compiled from the archived newspapers held at the Cranbrook Museum and Archives

1889 Railway News … Work in Isadore canyon, northeast of here, is progressing as rapidly as possible under Contractor McCarty. It will take several weeks to get through the canyon. Mr. Cowman, Jr., passed through here enroute to the Movie Lake tunnel. Mr. Cowan said that there is less than 200 feet more work ahead of them to complete the tunnel, and was confident that June would see the work finished. The tunnel is in a slate formation, which is very hard. All Smiles … Miss Lizzie McPhee departed last night for a visit in Fort Steele. Report says she will soon return and make the life of a popular young Cranbrook bachelor happy. Canbrook Goldfield … The Cranbrook townsite has been aptly described as a beautiful mountain park; it covers many acres, and will pan fine gold, in small quantities, almost anywhere; it is not likely, however, that bedrock will ever here be reached, as in an effort to reach water just north of town a hole was sunk 90 feet without getting through the wash. A Talking Machine ... The gramophone, a talking machine, much simpler and cheaper than the phonograph, invented by Dr. Berliner, the famous electrician, will soon be put upon the market. Its records of human speech and of music, it is said, are indestructible, and can be cheaply multiplied to an indefinite extent by simple mechanical means. What it has to say or sing can be heard all over an ordinary sized house. So devoid of complexity is its construction that the complete apparatus will cost only eighteen dollars, and a smaller edition, intended for the use of children, will be sold for five dollars 1899 Cemetery Grounds ... H. P. Cummins has been engaged the past week surveying the new

cemetery grounds just west of town. There will be five acres in the plot, which is to be sub divided into burial lots. Improving the Bowiing Alley ... C. M. Fink has prepared plans for remodelling the bowling alley. An attractive front will be put in with large windows, a card room added and a cigar stand. New balls and pins have been purchased, and commencing May 1, a prize will be given each month to the one making the highest record. A shooting gallery will be put in immediately. Mr. Fink will have a first class place and it will be a popular resort with the people of Cranbrook. A Fine Entertainment … Miss E. Pauline Johnson, the daughter of a head chief of the Mohawks, gave two entertainments in Cranbrook, appearing Saturday and Monday evenings at the Presbyterian Church. To one who has never heard her she is a most interesting revelation. Graceful in her movements, pleasing in her tone and charming in appearance, she holds her audience with perfect ease while reciting her wonderful tales of nature. Her compositions are in nature’s own language, and she displays the true poetic instinct in the grouping of ideas and her rhythmical combination of words. To see her in her Indian costume, and hear her recite, one can see the sparkling waters, the overhanging branches the peaceful paddling in a bark canoe, and catch the fragrance of wild flowers, or feel the rush of the torrent, the dash of the Indian brave in battle, the flash of the knife and the swish of the tomahawk. And, then again, she appears in beautiful evening costume, and recites poems and prose that are caustic reflections on the foibles, shams and hypocrisy of life. Her sarcasm is as keen as a Damascus blade, her wit as sparkling as champagne and her pathos as touching as the sob of a child. Those in Cranbrook who heard Miss. Johnson were indeed fortunate. A Close Shave … W. R. McFarlane has moved into his new shop and is now comfortably situated with every facility for doing the best of barber

work. At no little expense he has put in two bathrooms, and has a pleasant reading room in connection. A man can go there and get his bath, shave or haircut, and enjoy reading the latest periodicals. Mr. McFarlane’s place is a credit to Cranbrook. 1900 Our Athletes ... The Cranbrook exponents of the noble games of base and foot ball have received invitations to attend the Fernie celebration of the Queen’s birthday, May 24th. They no doubt will accept, and a feeling of pride in home talent induces the hope that they will wipe their opponents off the face of the earth, “paregorically” speaking. Get in and drill, boys. “Trick” Bicycle Riding ... Archie Currie is one of the most obliging and genial of Cranbrook’ s many swells; he is so very generous and obliging that he’d almost break his neck to do a favour for anyone, and that’s what he narrowly escaped doing last Sunday Two ladies were approaching as he was bicycling toward the basehall grounds on that day. One of them was wheeling a comparatively new representative of the rising generation, and as Archie drew near he thought he’d do a little something to amuse the baby as he was passing and make it think after all that this is not altogether a world composed of sin and sorrow. So he undertook to do the “front wheel spinning act” as he glided by. He got it started on the spin all right, but it stopped too quick, and lo! Archie turned a half somersault, landing fairly on his back, the bicycle and he reversing their positions with both wheels spinning in the air. He picked himself up as quickly as possible, quietly told the baby not to be frightened, as that was only a little trick that he often performed for his own amusement. The New Bicycle Stable ... Parrott & Demers have completed their new bicycle livery. It is a handsome, finely finished two-story building, 24x28 feet, and has on the first floor a large room in which to “stall” the wheels, and two smaller rooms in the

rear to be used for mechanical purposes. The upper story consists of two large rooms, and the whole is handsomely plastered, wainscoted and hard oil finished, and makes a fine building. In the front is a large platform about 24 feet wide and 20 feet long. G. R. Leask was the contractor and Pieper & Currie wielded the paintbrushes. “Get There” Outfit ... Leask and the Slater Bros., who have been putting in a sawmill near the planing mill, are hustlers. In just a week from the time of starting to erect the mill and putting in the machinery, it was in operation and cutting lumber for the completion of the building; and the work is thoroughly done. The plant throughout is a good one, and with such men to operate it will prove a valuable addition to the producing interests of South East Kootenay and Cranbrook. Wedding … McFarlane/Fletcher. The wedding of this popular young couple, last night, at the Methodist church was the most important socially and in details more elaborate than any event of a similar nature

ever occurring in Cranbrook. Hence the Herald is forced to delay a full report until the next issue. The happy couple departed on this morning’s west-bound express for an extended tour. Attendance … The school was open during the month of April for 19 days; the number in attendance, 43 in the first division and 42 in the second—an average of 85 in the two divisions, on a total enrolment of 105. Protected by the Police … A well-known old prospector was taken into custody last Tuesday by Constable Morris and locked up for his own protection. He was celebrating and had accumulated an overstock of “Oh, be Joyful” and was being trailed by several whose principal occupation is said to lay for people overburdened with the coin of the realm and boozerino, adding to their stock of the latter and separating them from the stock of the former. At the lockup there was found in the intoxicated man’s pockets about $85 and a belt well filled with gold coin strapped about his body.

The findings of the survey will be reviewed by the membership committee and the directors. The results of the survey will give us a clear direction in developing our fall program. The retail sector of the Chamber membership met on April 15th. Under the leadership of Vice-

Cranbrook Archives Museum and Landmark Foundation

President David Struthers, the group identified both challenges and opportunities for the retail sector in Cranbrook. I really appreciated the following information brought to us from Erin Dalton of Lotus Books. Thanks for shopping at one of our local retail outlets. Here’s what you just did! 1.

And on every membership survey, our members tell us that networking is the most beneficial part of their membership. We asked, when you think about networking, what does a successful networking opportunity look like that would provide value to your business. Some of you said, Our lunch table today was a super

networking experience. Some good value from panel discussion. Any opportunity to meet with other business people. Small enough to learn-big enough to bring a variety of ideas to the discussion. Set up something using a speed dating format where participants have specified tie to communicate. Luncheons, getting out in the public. Providing opportunity to mingle with other businesses in town. I think the ability to walk around and chat with other chamber members. Learning and educational opportunities self-care for self and employees. Getting to players, who’s working on new projects in the community… getting out to events having folks see my name/face get in contact with me. Those were some of the answers given on the survey. Again, our thanks to everyone who took the time to complete the survey. We appreciate your interest. Watch for detailed information for the Sam Steele Beer launch on May 22nd at The Heid Out & Fisher Peak Brewing Co. A collaboration with the Chamber of Commerce, the Sam Steele Society and The Heid Out & Fisher Peak Brewing Co. Well, yes you are invited.

The Drive One premise is simple, come down, test drive a new vehicle, and Ford Canada will donate $20 to the SPCA for your time and effort. Our goal is to send out 300 test drives, for a total donation of $6,000. “We approached the SPCA this year, because of all the hard and often difficult work they do in this area. Their employees and volunteers are some of the most passionate and dedicated people you’ll ever meet. Let’s face it, many of us are pet owners, ourselves, and can all identify with the heartbreak associated with finding a stray or abandoned animal. These things combined make the SPCA’s efforts worthy of their community’s recognition. “After speaking with Brenna, and discovering that the SPCA receives no government funding whatsoever, the decision to take them on was an easy one.”, says Rene Kowalchuk, Sales Manager at Denham Ford. Denham Ford is proud to support local charities, and to date, has raised well over $10,000 in Drive One events, alone. So bring the kids and your appetites and come visit Denham Ford’s new location at the north end of the strip on Sunday May 4, between 10 and 4, and test drive a new Ford to help us raise money for our friends at the SPCA!!

Punk rock legend performing at Lotus Ferdy Bell and

As Tom Holliston works a Western Canada gigging stint into his fateful move from Vancouver to Minnesota, he’s quick to point out this is not a fare-theewell tour. “More like a fareVERY-well tour — I hope! I’ll be in Minnesota over the summer.. I’ll be back on the West Coast later in summertime, working on new material with another band.”    Presumably this is NoMeansNo, the legendary prog-punk power trio Holliston’s been with since 1993. A tireless stalwart of the West Coast punk / underground rock community for over 35 years running, Holliston is also known for his work with the Show Business Giants and the Hanson Brothers (NoMeansNo’s humorous alter-ego side project), and is a peer of other Canadian cult heroes like Ford Pier. And Holliston presents his own particular

repertoire of clever folkrock with an intimate acoustic performance at Lotus Books in Cranbrook on the evening of Friday, May 2. “I love playing less traditional venues,” Holliston shares. “There’s usually a different mindset ... alcohol sales being somewhat less of a motive for the evening happening. On this tour I’m playing a basement in a private home in Winnipeg that’s been turned into a small club. The hosts are wonderful people. Mind you, I still need to play well and entertain: the event doesn’t run of it’s own accord.  It never changes. Tour after tour, I look forward to having good shows; just playing well, having people come out and enjoy themselves, and hooking up with seldom-seen pals.”   Holliston was asked if it’s difficult to stir up a Beatlemania frenzy over his solo tours when living somewhat in the shadow of the NoMeansNo world.

“I don’t think I’m capable of evoking frenzy!” Holliston laughs. “Hopefully not trepidation. Most people come down a notch or three when they’re distancing from the name-brand and playing solo.  Being on tour alone, or away from a band, has benefits that other projects may not. One single agenda being an example. Smaller PAs, meaning far less overhead. A different sort of challenge: seeing if you, yourself, can hold the attention of the attentive.  The average attendee apparently reacts to music mainly through beat and melody. Studies have shown, as they say. You can’t be a good band without a good drummer. This is simple, empirical fact... and furthermore, if the bass player’s stepping on the beat, the good drummer may become violent! That said, a good sense of melody becomes crucial. Especially when people aren’t familiar with your

Saturday May 3 rd

solo music. As I’m not a great melodist, I resort to tricks.”   Although not quite in his mid-50s, Hollison was asked: when he turns 70 and looks back upon his long list of unique and colourful rocknroll adventures, what points of satisfaction can he list off to the world at large with pride?   “I want to know that I did my best at something I loved to do; that I worked as hard as I could to make good things happen...without collapsing too often in a heap of shuddering stress! Everyone owes it to themselves to try as hard they can, if they really want to do something.   “The best praise is always from one’s peers. A few times I’ve been given kudos by really good players, and I’ve felt on top of the world. I’ve felt that my parents would be proud of me.  The thing I most hope to see at the age of 70 is the road forward.”

Big LNG investors endorse province’s plan Tom Fletcher Black Press

The biggest players in B.C.’s liquefied natural gas export proposal are still more than a year away from final commitment, but their latest step forward is a vote of confidence, according to the CEO of LNG Canada. Representatives of Shell Canada, Korea Gas, Mitsubishi and PetroChina announced signing of a joint venture agreement for the LNG Canada project in Vancouver Wednesday, with Premier Christy Clark and Natural Gas Minister Rich Coleman on hand. LNG Canada CEO Andy Calitz cautioned that a final investment decision depends on completion of reviews by B.C.’s Environmental Assessment Office and Oil and Gas Commission. The companies will now begin engineering work, and those steps will take another 18 to 24 months, Calitz said. The partnership includes an increase in Shell’s stake to 50%, with

PetroChina retaining 20% and Mitsubishi and Korea Gas reducing their shares from 20% to 15. Calitz said the companies have other projects in development in Africa, Australia, Russia and elsewhere, and the change does not reflect any loss of confidence in B.C. Calitz acknowledged the B.C. government’s commitment to increase industrial skills training in the school and apprenticeship system, announced Tuesday. Clark also announced she is leaving Friday for her fifth trade mission to Asia, with stops in Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong, mainly to promote LNG development. Calitz said there are international factors affecting the export price, but LNG Canada is looking beyond Asia to other world markets. There are three key factors in deciding whether to commit to the Kitimat project, Calitz said. They are shifts in the gas price in Asia, the supply and cost of labour

Many school boards in dark Judge awards damages to gullible and naive entrepreneur in B.C. over Afghan commemoration C ANADIAN PRESS


OTTAWA — Officials at many school boards across the country are scratching their heads about what’s expected of them during next week’s national commemoration of sacrifices in the Afghan war.

Provincial education departments were asked by the Harper government to have schools mark the May 9 event but left details up to individual jurisdictions. Many educators are trying to piece together an event, as is the Royal

Spokesman Ryan Bird says given that it is a new commemo-

VANCOUVER — Misrepresenting a vending-machine business to a “gullible and naive” entrepreneur has cost a Vancouver-area businessman more than $435,000. B.C. Supreme Court Judge Stephen Kelleher says Brian Thurston of Nutriview Systems Inc. convinced Harry Ma to pay a grossly inflated fee for a vending-machine business that operated in the Coquitlam School District, east of Vancou-

Public Notice Trespassing on Teck Metals Ltd. private land can be extremely dangerous. Any unauthorized entry to Teck’s property in the Kimberley area, including land leased to others, the former Mine-Mill ore haulage way, Mine Site, Concentrator Site, old Fertilizer Site, internal roads and Mark Creek valley can be hazardous. It is a contravention of the Mines Act for unauthorized persons to be on the Mine Site property. Trespassing by anyone on Teck property is strictly prohibited. Persons who disregard fences and signs will be subject to prosecution under the Trespass Act and the Mines Act.

ver. Kelleher says Thurston, a former stunt man and actor who has training in motivational speaking, also promised that corporate-sponsorship agreements and supply arrangements were in place and he would buy back the business in the first year if Ma wasn’t satisfied. But the judge noted in his ruling that the contract between the men contained none of the promises, and Ma, who

was 22 years old at the time, didn’t consult a lawyer because he didn’t want to show a lack of trust in Thurston. Kelleher says while Ma let his trust overwhelm his commons sense, the man still had the right to rescind the contract because three of Thurston’s statements were fraudulent. The judge assessed the business at $175,000 but awarded more than $435,000 in damages to Ma.

Thieves take everything from model housing ASSOCIATED PRESS

WICHITA, Kan. — Everything has been stolen — including the kitchen sink — from the kitchen of a model house in Kansas. Police say thieves stripped the kitchen of the Clayton Homes unit in south Wichita, taking all the upscale appliances, the wooden cabinets from the walls and, of course, the sink. General manager

Kevin McCracken says the model unit was nearly ready for display when the theft occurred, sometime between 9 p.m. Sunday and 8 a.m. Monday. KWCH-TV reports that the missing appliances, cabinets, counters and sink, along with the cost of repairing the damage, amounts to a loss of several thousand dollars.

Alberta counts 880 wild horses in the foothills John Cot ter CANADIAN PRESS

EDMONTON — The Alberta government has counted 10 per cent fewer wild horses in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains this year, but says it is too early to say whether it will rein in an annual roundup of some of these animals. Alberta Environment spokeswoman Carrie Sancartier said 880 feral horses were counted over five days in March, down by about 100 from 2013. These latest numbers were presented this week to a committee that advises the government on what to do with the horses, which are not native to the region and compete for grass with cattle and wild animals such as elk. “This will provide important information for the committee as it considers where to target management efforts in the future,” Sancartier said Wednesday. “There hasn’t been a decision made on a capture season for next year.” The committee includes horse welfare, livestock, forestry, hunting and conservation groups. Sancartier said the actual number of horses along the foothills could be higher because the animals are counted from the air by helicopter. The province said just 15 of the horses were rounded up during the last capture season, which can run from Nov. 1 until March 1, despite permits that would have allowed as

Watchdog says better health privacy laws needed C ANADIAN PRESS

VICTORIA — B.C.’s privacy watchdog says the province needs to enact a new health information privacy law to keep up with the pace of changing technology and cutting-edge research. The recommendation is one of 21 made by information and privacy commissioner Elizabeth Denham in a report that outlines dramatic changes coming in health care. Denham says digital health, genome sequencing and big-data linkages present new opportunities for innovation, but also new risks for the protection of personal health information. While other jurisdictions in Canada have stand-alone health information legislation, Denham says B.C. has a patchwork of laws and the rules can be difficult to follow. Her report says the government needs to take a holistic approach to the collection, use, disclosure and protection of personal health information and patient data by introducing a comprehensive health privacy law with independent oversight. Denham says the province has the opportunity to be a leader in embracing new technologies to improve health outcomes for patients and promote leading research.

many as 200 to be taken. The roundup drew the ire of animal rights activists who said some of the captured horses were destined for slaughterhouses. The culling is also opposed by some people who believe the horses should be treated as part of Alberta’s cowboy heritage. Earlier this year the government said the capture was necessary to keep a ballooning population in check. Bill desBarres of the Alberta Equestrian Federation is a member of Alberta’s feral horse advisory committee. He said up to 50 horses either died or were removed over the fall and winter from the herds along the foothills. Some were captured and others were found wandering outside the six areas where they freely roam. He said the drop in numbers is no reason for concern at this point and said it is too early to make a decision about whether another roundup is needed. “It does not ring any alarm bells,” he said. The challenge is to carefully manage the population of the horses to ensure they have enough to eat. “Obviously if they run out of food it is not humane to leave them out there to starve.” Alberta Environment says wild horses like to gather in grassland areas, including native grasslands like rough fescue, which are sensi-

Ranchers pay fees to the government to use these same areas to graze livestock. The government says these horses have no natural predators,

although a few are sometimes killed by wolves or cougars. The horses are descendants of domestic animals used in logging and mining operations in the early 1900s. DesBarres said the committee

will make its recommendation to the government about whether another roundup is needed to help control the size of the wild horse population as early as July.

Tanker cars derail, catch fire in Virginia ASSOCIATED PRESS

LYNCHBURG, Va. — Authorities were evacuating numerous buildings Wednesday afternoon after several CSX tanker cars carrying crude oil derailed in downtown Lynchburg, Virginia, and caught fire along the James River, city officials said. The city of Lynchburg on its website posted that the fire department was on the scene and urged motorists and pedestrians to avoid the area. It tweeted that the tanker cars were carrying crude oil and that three or four of

them were breached. The city said 13 or 14 tanker cars were involved in the derailment. No injuries were immediately reported, the city said. Photos and video show several black tanker cars derailed and extensive flames and smoke. The city said on in a news release on its website that CSX officials were working to remove the portion of the train that is blocking workers from leaving a local foundry. A phone message left by The Associated Press with the Lynch-

burg Police Department wasn’t immediately returned. Lynchburg is a city of about 77,000 people in the foothills of Blue Ridge Mountains. It is home to Liberty University and several others and is located about halfway between Baltimore and Charlotte, North Carolina. Oil train accidents were the topic of National Transportation Safety Board Chairman Deborah Hersman last week at a two-day safety forum in Washington. Hersman said the Obama administration needed to take steps

US to adopt new air pollution standards ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO — A federal court has given the Obama administration a deadline for updating federal standards for smog that are more than a year overdue. U.S. District Court Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers in San Francisco on Tuesday ordered the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to issue ground-level ozone standards by Dec. 1 and a final rule by Oct. 1, 2015. “EPA will meet the deadlines outlined by the court,” Liz Purchia, an agency spokeswoman, said in an emailed

statement. “However, the deadlines present a challenge for the agency because there is a significant amount of scientific analysis and review required.” Ozone is the main ingredient in smog, a powerful lung irritant. At ground-level, ozone is created when emissions from cars and industrial facilities mix with sunlight to create smog. The court ruling came after environmental groups sued the Obama administration for failing to issue a new standard by March 2013, as required by

the federal Clean Air Act. The last ozone standards were adopted by former President George W. Bush in 2008. Environmental groups had sued the agency then to strengthen the rules, and the Obama administration had vowed to do so. In 2010, then-EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson proposed tightening the standards, as agency scientific advisers recommended, only to have them tabled by the White House. Businesses and congressional Republicans said the rules would hurt the economy.

immediately to protect the public from potentially catastrophic oil train accidents even if it means using emergency authority. The Transportation Department was in the midst of drafting regulations to toughen standards for tank cars used to transport oil and ethanol, as well as other steps prevent or mitigate accidents. But there isn’t time to wait for the cumbersome federal rulemaking process — which often takes many years to complete — to run its normal course, Hersman said.

Nine eagles killed C ANADIAN PRESS

KAMLOOPS, B.C. — The remains of eight bald eagles and one golden eagle have been found in a ditch near Kamloops, B.C. Officials with the Conservation Officer Service say the carcasses were discovered last month in the ditch beside a well-used public road. Heads, feet, tail feathers and wings of all nine birds had been removed. T’Kemlups Indian Band Chief Shane Gottfriedson said eagles are sacred creatures for First Nations culture. “Most importantly, when you look at how the eagles were desecrated it causes a concern for our wildlife, too,” Gottfriedson said Wednesday. Conservation officer Andy McKay said that while the eagle population is currently in good shape, any more such incidents could affect their numbers.

HOROSCOPES by Jacqueline Bigar

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You’ll demonstrate a good deal of knowledge when in a conversation with a close associate. Know that there is always more to learn. Try to stay focused. A boss might feel awkward asking for a favor. Do what you can to help. Tonight: Brainstorm away. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You might decide that the time is right for a discussion about money. Recognize that you could view the situation differently from how others do. You also can be stubborn. Unless someone is used to working with you, he or she is likely to feel frustrated. Tonight: Your treat. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Much is going on behind the scenes right now. How you project yourself and what you say could be very different from reality. You might feel uneasy around a loved one who seems to be quite irritated. Relate to others on an individual level. Tonight: Beam in what you want.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Know when to stop yourself from continuing on the same path. Understand what is happening with a child or loved one. This person might need some attention or companionship. An unexpected event could force some thought. Tonight: Reach out to a close friend. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You will draw others into your way of thinking. A meeting could allow associates to vent and express their ideas. Let them clear the air. You might find that a different approach works better with an irate person who does not want to calm down.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Reach out for another opinion,


especially if you are perplexed by a situation. You need to detach before you respond. Your temper easily could be unleashed if you don’t use some restraint. A key person in your life will do the unexpected. Tonight: Have a good time. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Defer to someone you trust to handle many of the demands of your day. You might be sitting on some anger, and it would be wise to release some of your frustration or share your feelings before you suddenly explode. Tonight: Be with a favorite person. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Keep your priorities in mind. What you think might be a great idea will need to be tested. You’ll have a lot of energy with a certain situation. A friend might need to express his or her strong ideas. Consider what would be best under the circumstances. Tonight: Say “yes.” CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Pace yourself, and you will get a lot done quickly. Your dynamic ideas could trigger a strong reac-

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You’ll be very playful compared to those around you. Your lightness actually might offend someone.

ANNIE’S MAILBOX by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I was widowed five years ago, after 36 years of marriage. Recently, I reunited with my boyfriend from junior high school. “Harry” is in the final weeks of a divorce. It turns out that Harry and I are very much in love. Unfortunately, my oldest daughter is extremely angry that I am dating a man whose divorce is not final. She refuses to meet Harry and wants me to stop seeing him. She will not visit me or permit me to spend time with my two grandchildren as long as I am with Harry. I have always been close to my three adult children. I am terribly hurt by my daughter’s refusal to allow contact. We have gone to counseling separately, and I am hoping, in time, that we can get some joint counseling. But right now, my daughter won’t even talk to me. We are at an impasse. Any advice? -Widow Dear Widow: If your daughter truly objects to your seeing a man who is not yet legally divorced, then there will be no change until his status is resolved. And you might consider waiting. While you knew Harry as a young girl, your current relationship is new. Please take your time. Your daughter also may feel that you are trying to replace her father, and she could reject any man you date. Many grown children have a difficult time accepting that their widowed parent is in love with someone else. They feel that as long as you remain a grieving widow, your late husband is the love of your life. Anything else is a betrayal. It is, of course, terribly selfish of any child to deny parents such future happiness and expect them to live in the past. We hope counseling helps you both. Dear Annie: My 83-year-old husband has always been a quiet man. He now lives at a nursing home for medical reasons and comes home every day to visit me. After a few words of greeting, he sits down and remains silent, expecting me to entertain him with conversation. He’s turning into his father, who never said more than five sentences to me. I’m not in the best of health and don’t do much socializing, but I can speak pleasantly about current world affairs and events in our children’s lives. Some days I don’t feel like talking at all and would like to just sit and watch television. My husband’s attitude is making me angry and exhausted. I’ve spoken to him about it, but he is too lazy to contribute anything. He has two friends and no social activities. He makes me feel like screaming. Any suggestions? -- Iceberg Dear Iceberg: You are taking on a bigger burden than necessary. The fact that your husband visits doesn’t mean he is a guest whom you have to entertain. You are not obligated to make conversation with someone who neither contributes nor cares. While he undoubtedly appreciates news of the children, there is nothing wrong with having a visit where the two of you watch TV together. Accept him as he is, and talk only as much as you want. We hope this alleviates some of your frustration. Dear Annie: I have another perspective on “Concerned Cousin,” who worried about grandchildren occasionally sharing a bed with the grandparents. My husband and I have 12 grandchildren. When they sleep over, we put them in the same little tent our daughter once slept in when we camped out, along with a second small tent we purchased later. The kids love it, and we can keep an eye on them throughout the night. In this day and age, it is important to take precautions. We are loving, caring grandparents, but the reality is, if a parent decides to punish you, you can be accused of terrible things you never did. -- Protect the Grandparents Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Destiny Rescue: a view of the dark side F Jeff Crozier

rom March 17 to April 4, I travelled in Thailand and Cambodia to experience the darker side of our world. I am 44, with three amazing kids, and a beautiful wife, and the pastor of an incredible church in a small city at the base of the Rocky Mountains in B.C. I never pictured myself sitting in the middle of the red light district in the heart of Cambodia, having a drink with prostitutes. But that is exactly where I found myself while ministering with Destiny Rescue, an organization whose heart is to rescue underage girls from a life of slavery and servitude in the sex industry of Thailand, Cambodia and other countries around the world. I had the life-changing opportunity to go out on the streets of two major Asian cities and experience various stages in the process of rescuing girls. On my first night we visited a bar where a group of eight to ten “working girls” were waiting to welcome anyone who would enter. Our leader for that evening, who I will call “Gene,” noticed a few girls that were potentially underage and felt a draw to engage these girls. After a few minutes of explanation on how a “soft” rescue goes we approached the bar and sat down. Typically these girls work for the bar and will be paid based on one-

May Special

Jeff Crozier, during a visit to an orphanage in Cambodia hour time allotments. We requested the three girls who looked the youngest and asked them to sit with us. We paid 100 Baht each for the girls’ time ($3.50) and began to talk. At this point, the girls would typically be asked to perform various acts or dances, so our job was to make sure they knew that we were not there to demand any act or dance and that they were safe while sitting with us. When we explained this to them, a visible look of relief passed over each of their faces. A sure sign that they did not like the work that they were being forced to do.

As our time there passed, we learned that these particular girls were 17 and 18 years old and had only been working in this business for three weeks. The stories that we heard were usually similar. Each had come from a large, poor family and this was the only way to make enough money to send home to support the family. One of the girls was a beautiful 17-year-old who was in school and needed tuition for the coming semester. We chatted with them and bought them dinner. As we spoke, using as much Thai as we were able to and the girls with very

broken English, we came to see that these were young women who had dreams and desires that far surpassed the degradation they were finding themselves in. They were locked into a life that took everything away and gave nothing in return. They held no hope for what we would consider to be a normal life. We quickly learned that if there was a different path offered, all three of these girls would gladly take it. The hardest thing to do that night was to actually leave them there. These young women are the same age as my children who were safe at

home in Canada. I wanted to steal them from that desperate environment right then, and never allow them to be groped, used and discarded by countless men. My heart was breaking as I came to the realization that this was normal in their world. Gene told the girls that good men would be contacting them in a couple of days and offering them a way out. They seemed relieved at this and I knew that we had given them a thread of hope to cling to. Before we left we hugged the girls, releasing healthy “daddy” hugs and speaking blessing over them. As I walked away, I could hardly suppress the urge to actively do more, but what God had called me to on that night was to release the Love of Jesus on these daughters. As I sit writing this, I have just received an email from Thailand telling me that two of the girls that we contacted that night are in the process of going through the rehabilitation and training program that Destiny Rescue offers. My experiences in Thailand and Cambodia have changed my heart and dramatically shifted the way that I look at the sex industry. No child or young woman, whether in North America, Asia or any other part of the world should ever be forced to give up a part of themselves just to make a living, or be forced into slavery to satisfy the supposed needs of men. I have seen the hopeless empty gaze of girls crying out to be freed from this oppression. My only question to myself now is, “What can I do next?” If you are wondering what you can do next, check out the organization that I worked with at www.destinyrescue. org. They have many opportunities for you to become involved with rescuing girls from a life of servitude and abuse.

The public is invited to come and hear about Jeff’s trip and his reflection on human trafficking in Thailand and Cambodia, sunday, May 4, 6 p.m. at House of Hope in Cranbrook.

Obituary Faye Christine Almack

It is with deep regret and sadness, that after a lengthy battle with cancer, we must announce the passing of our mother Faye Christine Almack on April 27, 2014. Mom will be remembered and loved by many. Great memories will be cherished by her sons Norman (Cheryl) of Prince George and Robert (Scott) of North Vancouver. Proud Grandma to Shannon and Jared, Great Gramma to Maddie and Kayden and Auntie to Scott. Faye was predeceased by her husband Bill, her parents Mac and Claire and brother Dougie MacPherson. Faye was born on September 14, 1943 and was a lifelong resident of Kimberley. Through Mac and Claire, Faye also had roots in the West Kootenays. She spent many summers in Kaslo and Silverton, which led to an everlasting love of the Kootenay Lake area. Bill and Faye never strayed to far from home but did enjoy day tripping around the area immensely. Faye was quite an accomplished fly tier and fly fisher and spent many hours in the west arm of the Kootenay lake perfecting her craft. Many thanks to the angels who staff the Pines. The compassion and the dedication you perform your duties with is no small comfort to the families of the loved ones in your care. Thank you. There will be no service as per Faye’s wishes. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Pines Memorial Society, c/o 372 - 108 Avenue, Kimberley, BC V1A 1C6.

Obituaries Theresa (Terry) Mary Nixon (nee Strain) May 4, 1929 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; April 23, 2014 It is with great sadness that the family of Theresa Nixon announces she passed away peacefully surrounded by family on April 23, 2014 at the age of 84.

Theresa was born and raised in Fort McLeod, AB. She eventually moved to Cranbrook, BC where she met, and later married Harold, her husband of 59 years. Together they started their family of 3 boys in Parson, BC before moving back to Cranbrook. Theresa was adventurous and never one to sit still, always up for trying something new. She took up downhill skiing in her 60â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, went white water rafting, travelled to Thailand, went on all the rides in Disney World with her grandkids, and hiked up mountains. She enjoyed baking, we will all miss her homemade bread, buns, cinnamon buns cookies and Christmas squares. Other hobbies included knitting, word puzzles and walking. Theresa kept fit and active by walking every day, including her final days in Foothills hospital. She also always made sure that she had her weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supply of lottery tickets on hand.

In times of grief, these caring professionals are here to serve and comfort your family.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mother Theresaâ&#x20AC;? (as she was known amongst family) never complained about anything and always put the needs of others ahead of her own. She was there to lend a hand to friends, family, or complete strangers. Theresa faced many adversities in her life head on and never got discouraged no matter how difficult things had become. She was never happier than when she was surrounded by her family, be it a casual evening sitting in the backyard, family vacations, birthday celebrations, weddings, or reunions. Theresa leaves behind her 3 sons; Garth (Linda), Gord (Karen) and Lorne (Kim), 4 Grandchildren; Josh (Jill), Allison (Scott), Jeff (Terri), and Danielle (Davey), and 4 Great Grandchildren; Avery, Madelyn, Jace, and Kael. She is predeceased by her husband Harold, her daughter Baby girl Nixon, her grandson Joel, and her siblings Eugene, Joe, Madelyn, and Gwen. Theresa never told us how to live our lives, she showed us. Rest in Peace Mom.

Canadian schools starting to teach computer coding C ANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO — It’s still small, but there’s a movement afoot to teach coding to Canadian kids at school. Given the increasingly important role that technology is playing in today’s culture, business and everyday life, children should be exposed to computer tools as soon as possible, according to Leroy Vincent, a technology and art specialist at the River Valley Middle School in Grand Bay-Westfield, N.B. The school is featured in an upcoming documentary called “Code Kids,” about a push to implement technology training in grade schools throughout the Maritimes. At River Valley, Vincent made it his mission to have every one of the school’s 340-odd Grade 6 through Grade 8 kids exposed to computer programming. “Everything in the world now is computers and everything is pro-

gramming. I’m not saying every kid is going to be a programmer, don’t get me wrong, but every kid has got to be exposed to it,” says Vincent. “We want to make sure every kid understands what it is and if they understand what it is they’ll know whether they’re interested or not.” Real programming languages are far beyond the grasp of most grade schoolers but Vincent has introduced his students to a language called Scratch, developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Scratch is capable of creating interactive stories and games and has a user-friendly drag and drop interface that makes programming less intimidating and easier to learn. “It’s a very highly successful introduction (to programming),” Vincent says. “The kids found immediate success from it so it hooked

them very quickly.” In Ottawa, a program called is pairing Grade 10 students with Grade 3 kids in a project to have them all learn more about coding. The younger kids come up with an app concept based on a subject they’re currently learning about in class, and the older students bring that idea to life. “The apps are basic but what we like to say is that the app is not the end goal, it’s the process of creating the app that really is the biggest lesson for the students involved,” says program manager Maria Smirnoff. “They’re using apps like ‘Angry Birds’ or ‘Bejeweled’ but they don’t understand the process that goes behind making it.” Smirnoff says the project, which started in four schools and is now in 55, was designed to encourage technology education at a time

Canadian schools are starting to teach coding for computers. when it was being forgotten, in the aftermath of Nortel’s collapse. “Parents who were impacted by the Nortel — I’ll say disaster for a lack of a better term — were actually discouraging their own children from pursuing a technology career

Bird watchers in feathered fuss over rare sighting C ANADIAN PRESS

PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. — Bird watchers in Prince George, B.C., are in a flap over the latest unique sighting in that north-central B.C. city. For the first time ever recorded, a blacknecked stilt has been spotted in the area. Avid birder and Prince George Naturalist Club key leader Clive Keen photographed the small interloper Monday morning east of the city, just hours after it was spotted on Sunday evening. “This is really very exciting for local birders,” he said. “It’s very unusual to be able to add another

species to the PG-and-area checklist. The sighting takes us from 297 species recorded locally to 298.” While the bird is not uncommon on the east side of the Canadian Rockies, it is very unusual on the B.C. side, “and almost unheard of in the north of the province,” said Keen. “It’s also a very peculiar bird, with the bright red legs completely out of scale with the small black and white body,” he described. “It’s quite closely related to the beautiful avocet, but trades in the avocet’s elegance for the ability to find food in deepish, still ponds.”

There are practical reasons some birds veer off their usual track. In late 2012, snowy owls flocked to the Prince George region after an overabundance of food in the western Arctic regions, caused a bird boom that sent thousands of owls soaring to uncommon locations in search of food. More and more, climate change is playing a role in the longer lists kept by any region’s bird counters, said Keen, although he noted data is hard to correlate to any one surprise sighting. “More likely, this bird just got

Emergency personnel save chilled woman in Edmonton C ANADIAN PRESS

EDMONTON — Rescuers needed a police helicopter spotlight and thermal imaging sensors to find a semi-conscious and hypothermic woman who had become trapped between two logs after falling down an Edmonton river bank. More than two dozen emergency personnel combined in the Monday night darkness to help save the young woman, who was found along the edge of the North Saskatchewan River.

Police say she had been with group at a fire pit in a central-area park when she wandered away. It was two hours before her friends noticed she was missing and called for help. A fire department technical rescue team worked with paramedics to pull the woman up the riverbank using a basket stretcher. She was taken to hospital for an assessment, but police say she won’t have any lasting injuries.
