Kimberley North Star Quilters recently donated 30 quilts to Rotaplast International to be used by teams made up of volunteer doctors, nurses and Rotarians who carry out cleft palate and burn surgeries in underdeveloped countries. Each patient is given a quilt prior to surgery and gets to take it home, a more comfortable alternative than being wrapped in plastic sheets which was the case before the introduction of this program by Rotarian and quilter Terry Hodskins from Maine in 2001. Since then 19000 quilts which would cover five football fields have been donated by quilters from the US and Canada.

Two long-time City employees retire C AROLYN GR ANT Bulletin Editor

The City of Kimberley lost a wealth of experience in one day last week as both Chief Corporate Administrator George Stratton and Deputy Fire Chief Jack Paterson retired. Stratton retired after 23 years with the City and over 40 years in municipal government. Council commented on his retirement last week at their regular meeting, all agreeing that his wealth of knowledge of local government would

be missed. Coun. Darryl Oakley, who served with Paterson on the Kimberley Fire Department said that he went above and beyond his duties as Deputy Chief. “He was hugely respected,” Oakley said. “He was a calm voice and really great to work with, a true professional.” “Both George and Jack did great work for the City over the years. They will both be missed,” said Coun. Jack Ratcliffe.

A grizzly bear was spotted in Marysville on Thursday evening at about 5:30 p.m. Hannah Hollister, who lives on 301 Street, just below the Rails to Trails, says the bear was in her driveway where her four-year old son was playing. “My son was outside playing with the hose. He came in and told me there was a bear. We went outside and it was still there. It was definitely a grizzly, probably two or three years old.” Hollister says she used to work for Fish and Wildlife and would recognize a grizzly. She said her son pointed to where he had been standing, about eight feet from the bear. “He thought it was awesome,” she said.

Hollister said the bear wasn’t doing anything, just standing there. It didn’t appear afraid of them, but didn’t appear aggressive either. “My son told me that our little dog — who is afraid of cats — got between him and the bear. She barked and the bear backed off to the end of the driveway. I called her away and she was growling at the bear but she came. Then she scooted into the house with her tail between her legs. We went inside and shut the door. I opened the blinds, which are squeaky, and that seemed to scare the bear off.” Hollister called the Conservation Officer service and was told that there had been other reports of the grizzly in town last week. Residents are encouraged to manage attractants so the grizzly, or any other bear, will move on.

A grass fire Wednesday in the neighbourhood of Slaterville could have ended up being significant, but quick reaction and a little weather luck meant the fire was under control quickly.

Last week’s grass fire a close call for Slaterville residents A r n e P e t rys h e n Townsman Staff

A grass fire threatened residences and a school in Slaterville Wednesday afternoon. Luckily, fire crews were able to attend and put the fire out before it got out of hand. They got the call mid afternoon Wednesday. The location of the fire was in a woodland area between residences and the Kootenay Christian Academy school building, in the square block between Fifth and Sixth Street NW and Hurry and Briar Avenue NW. “The fire was moving quite quickly up the hill towards some homes, but we were able to stop it,” Scott Driver, deputy director of Fire and Emergency

Services for Cranbrook, said. He said the fire got pretty big and a big plume of smoke was visible across town. At the same time a much bigger plume of smoke could be seen rising from the Ministry of Forest’s controlled burn north of the city. The Cranbrook fire department sent four trucks to Slaterville: A water tender, a fire engine, a bush truck and the command vehicle. “Just due to the location, it was close to a lot of residences and the school,” Driver said. “Fire did make it into the trees and some of the neighbours were quite concerned about the safety of their property.” He said crews aren’t

sure how the grass fire started, noting though there was burning going on in the area earlier, they couldn’t make a determination. “It didn’t look intentional and it didn’t look malicious,” he said. He also said RCMP doesn’t get involved in these types of incidents.

“It could have ended up being significant, but it didn’t,” he said. “Everyone got lucky with weather and thing and we’re sort of fortunate that way.” Driver noted the fire department wants people to know is that there is no open burning allowed in the city. “If people are burn-

ing their yard waste in the city, that’s against the city’s bylaws,” Driver said. “In the regional district it’s allowed under certain conditions that are laid out under the environment and forest services.” He noted there is free recycling at the landfill for those types of material.

Buy a piece of Cranbrook’s heritage For the Townsman

Members of the Cranbrook Heritage Association (CHA) have launched a fundraising drive to raise funds for restoration of the old brick Water/Electrical building. “This is the latest project of the rejuvenated Cranbrook Heritage Association, and we want to make it a success,” said CHA President Karen Crawford. "If every family in Cranbrook bought a brick for $10 we would be able to restore this quirky, interesting old building. Come on Cranbrook!” Crawford added that Chris and Carol Johns were the very first contributors to the campaign. Donations are being received at the following locations: Cathy’s Kitchen, Lotus Books, Cloverdale Paints and Hot Shots Café.

The CHA announced several levels to the fundraising programme. A $10 donation will get the donor’s name on a display brick, while a $25 donation will get a donor’s name on a display cornerstone. “There are also beautiful colour certificates available for donors at larger levels,” Crawford said. “The Columbia Basin Institute of Regional History has contributed beautiful full-colour old share

certificates for contributors at the $50 (Window), $100 (Door) and $250 (Roof) level. These are definitely suitable for framing and display.” The CHA is working to raise $35,000 locally for the restoration, which will be combined with grant funds that have been applied for. Work on the building is progressing as the funds for materials are accumulated. Most of the labour is voluntary.

A fawn left alone is not necessarily abandoned. Quite often, Mom will return shortly. This is true not just for deer; many mammals leave their young alone for long periods of time, only to return to feed them at regular intervals. So, if you encounter a young deer or calf in the wild at this time of the year, appreciate the experience, but don’t approach or intervene. Quick Facts: If you find a fawn or calf that you think may be orphaned, here’s what you should do: See page 5

Although these newborns may appear abandoned, it is rarely the case, and if they are removed they will be orphaned. While professional wildlife rehabilitation facilities in some areas of B.C. can successfully rear these newborns, there is no maternal care and their chances of survival are far less than if they had been raised by their true mother.

VICTORIA – When it comes to newborn wild animals, mother always knows best, and so with fawning and calving season underway provincial biologists are reminding people that newborn deer, elk or moose should not be touched or moved when encountered. People who find these newborns alone often mistakenly believe they have been abandoned, but usually they have only been left there temporarily by their mother, who will return. Intervening in these situations by ‘rescuing’ the fawn or calf is rarely necessary and will usually do more harm than good. It is normal for mother deer, elk and other ungulates to leave their young alone for long periods, returning a few times a day to nurse and relying on the newborn’s lack of scent to protect them from predators. Returning mothers that find humans or pets nearby may leave or can be-

The grant will be used to support a series of free, local educational events and activities designed to inspire BC residents to learn more about their water, including how it is treated and delivered

We also need to think about water as a system that needs long-term planning, investment and public support to help ensure our communities are healthy and continue to thrive.” Due to snowpack in the Kimberley Dam vicinity, Drinking Water Week activities planned for Kimberley

Bill Wilcox, Kimberley’s Recreation Director for the past seven years, has resigned his post following a period of worsening relations between himself and the executive of the Kimberley Amateur Athletic Association, by whom he was engaged. Mr. Wilcox, a former city alderman, has played an active part in the recreation and sports field in Kimberley and it was under his direction that Kimberley athletics won a Dominion vaulting championship, four provincial gymnastics championships, swimming and diving championships and a long list of first, second and third prizes in square dancing. Asked for comment on his resignation, Mr. Wilcox made the following statement: “In the original K.A.A.A. setup, my job was as Recreational Director on a five-day week basis, it being stipulated that I do not interfere with any organized sports such as hockey, fastball, boxing, etc. “I was responsible to the Board of Directors to whom I made a monthly report in addition to an annual report.

With this I am willing to rest my case with the Kimberley public.”

More Expansion For “Bay” Here

Further expansion of the Hudson’s Bay Company’s store facilities in Kimberley is due to get started in the very near future. The company will demolish the old Post Office building, purchased last year by the Rupert’s Land Trading Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Hudson’s Bay Company, in preparation for erection of a one-storey addition to their present building. Some time ago, the company completed arrangements with city council whereby the present lane between Spokane and Ross, adjacent to the company’s property, will be closed and a substitute lane, the other side of the old post office, opened. This will involve moving power, water and sewer lines, a job that will be undertaken in the near future. Gordon Halbert, Bay manager in Kimberley, said this morning the new addition will form part of the present building with the entrance from the present premises.

Key City brings world-class chamber musicians to Cranbrook Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

The Key City Theatre remains a busy and eventful place as summer approaches, with many bookings in May and June, a festival next month, and even events when the theatre would traditionally have been closed. Once school lets out, the theatre usually takes a two-month hiatus. However, this year there will be events at the Key in July and August. “We are not presenting anything on our own over the summer but we are providing that service,” said Gerard Gibbs, managing director. “We will be here a bit more often than what was traditional.” This week, the theatre was forced to announce the cancellation of a concert presenting Lisa Marie Presley, slated for June 27, which had sold several hundred tickets. “She is just off an Australia-Japan tour and she has just become completely exhausted, and the doctor ordered that she take a break. So at this point she has cancelled the North American leg of the tour,” said Gibbs. But keeping up the tempo at the Cranbrook theatre will be the SoWeCa Chamber Music Festival, coming to the Key on Friday, May 23. The festival will bring 11 world-class musicians to Cranbrook, under the direction of Rivka Golani, professor of viola at London’s prestigious Trinity College of Music and one of the great violists of modern times. SoWeCa, which stands for South West Canada, is a festival that ran out of the Empress Theatre in Fort Macleod from 2005 to 2011, a

Ellin’s Baker Massacre 1870 will premiere at Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump on May 25. Prior to the concert in Cranbrook, University of Lethbridge professor of music Brian Black will give a talk on the pieces set to be performed that evening. “It will give the audience a chance to learn more about the background of the pieces and the musicians,” said Gibbs. “We find that audience members really enjoy that opportunity. In most cases, the vast majority of the audience comes in advance for the pre-concert talk.” In future years, the festival will involve more Kootenay musicians, Gibbs said, adding that he hopes to involve the Ktunaxa Nation and Cranbrook’s youth community in the

partnership between Golani and Gibbs, himself an acclaimed oboist and concert producer. The festival has been reborn this year, since Gibbs took the head position at the Key City Theatre. It will include four performances: opening night in Cranbrook on May 23, a recital program at Fernie’s Knox United Church on May 24, a special performance at Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump near Fort Macleod on May 25, and the conclusion on May 26 at the University of Lethbridge’s Recital Hall. “In Fernie we are doing an entirely unique

program. It’s a recital program - in a way, very old fashioned but still very engaging for the audience because all of the musicians get to stand up and perform a solo piece, usually a very flashy show piece. So one after another we all take our turns. It’s a very entertaining program for the audience,” said Gibbs. The concert at Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump reflects the festival’s relationship with the Blackfoot Nation. And Golani was recently given an honorary degree from the University of Lethbridge, hence the performance there.

The musicians performing at the festival come from Canada and the United Kingdom. They include John Lowry, concertmaster of the Calgary Philharmonic; Andrew Brown, assistant principal viola in the Vancouver Symphony, and Noam Buchman, principal flute in the Jerusalem Symphony. SoWeCa commissioned three new works that will premiere at the festival. David Jaegar’s Thunder and Raven will be performed for the first time at the Key City Theatre on Friday, May 23.

event. “We just wanted to get it off the ground and give people an opportunity to see what this is all about. It’s something that we have built over time. We plan to work more closely with musicians here in the community,” said Gibbs. “We have discussed a number of ideas and you will see that come to fruition the following year.” The Key City Gallery is also vibrant and active with new exhibits scheduled into the fall. Currently the works of Sharon Routley and Brandon Peters are on display and in May we will showcase the art of Anton Zanesco. From brilliant abstracts to symbolism filled Canadian Landscapes to portraits depicting aboriginals and spirit, Anton’s

works will be the perfect complement the Soweca festival. For June and the summer months the gallery will be home to archival photographs depicting the early years of Cranbrook and School District Number 5. The Gallery is open 10-4 Monday to Friday — the public is invited to come and view the exhibits and maybe take home a wonderful local work of art. Tickets to the SoWeCa Chamber Music Festival cost $30 for adults and $10 for students. For more information, visit www.soweca.com. Those who have tickets to see Lisa Marie Presley can contact the Key City Theatre at 250426-7006 for a refund.

PUBLIC CONSULTATION PROPOSED AMENDMENT OF OFFICIAL COMMUNITY PLAN The City of Cranbrook has received an application to amend the City’s Official Community Plan. On April 28, 2014, City Council gave first reading to “City of Cranbrook Official Community Plan Amendment Bylaw No. 3797, 2014”. If adopted, the proposed Official Community Plan (OCP) amendment will change the land use designation of the subject property from a “Highway Commercial” designation to a “Low Density Residential” designation. Approval of the proposed OCP amendment will enable consideration of a proposed rezoning of the subject property from a “C-2 – Highway Commercial Zone” to a “RT - Residential Transition Zone”. The subject property is legally described as: Lot A, District Lot 2872, Kootenay District, Plan 11840, Except Part in Plan 13947, and is located on 30th Avenue North as indicated on the reference map below.

Opinion/Events

Final buzzer sounds on Dix leadership

A

s the clock ticked down on the last few hours of Adrian Dix’s three-year tenure as leader of the New Democratic Party Thursday, he was, of course, the recipient some gracious accolades. Both sides of the legislature rose for a standing ovation when he got to his feet during the morning question period. In fielding the last question that Dix would pose as leader, government house leader Mike de Jong skipped the answer and cut straight to the tribute to a worthy opponent. “I frequently disagreed with the Leader of the Opposition but have always respected the passion that he has brought to this place and to public affairs generally and certainly recognized his abilities. He has held a post that is difficult, challenging and thankless.” At which point Dix put up his hands in mock protest, as if to say “thankless? difficult? where did you ever get such notions about the job of leading the opposition?” Back to de Jong, seriously now: “It is a post that is integral and essential to the practicing of parliamentary democracy and (makes) a unique contribution to this place. Question period is perhaps the most appropriate time for this house and this side of the house, all sides of the house, to say thank you.” Also, it allowed the Liberals to skate past a tough line of questioning from Dix about the government’s dubious proposal to reform forestry tenures — lately coming under unlikely fire from one of the leading forest companies, Canfor. But as de Jong acknowledged, both the issue and Dix (albeit in a subsidiary role to

H

incoming leader John Horgan) will still be active when the house resumes business next week. It fell to NDP house leader Bruce Ralston to pick up the theme on behalf of the Opposition. He took his turn at the end of the 30-minute question period, not wanting to pass on any part of the daily opportunity to hold government to account. He began by noting how Dix assumed the leadership following the ouster of Carole Vaughn bitter James in a caucus revolt Palmer in late 2010. “He took over the leadership of our party at a particularly difficult time and drew us together again,” said Ralston. “He has brought to the job that he occupies today an energy, a passion, an intellect and, I think everyone would agree, an unrivalled work ethic.” Especially the latter. Dix is one of the hardest workers I have come across in covering provincial politics. He was exceptionally well-read and well-informed, whatever one thinks of the positions he took and the way he conducted his campaigns. He did a remarkable job of raising money for his party before the last election, particularly from the business community. The confidence he displayed as leader went a long way toward conveying the impression that the NDP was united, ready to govern and poised to win. More recently in the legislature, he has been given to displays of anger and occasional petulance, suggesting he is still harbouring some unresolved bitterness over

losing to Christy Clark. But his good humour was much on display Thursday as he thanked the two house leaders for their kind words: “If I had only known I could unite people so well, I would have left a long time ago.” This just in: According to an Angus Reid poll released Thursday, respondents who balked at voting NDP in the last election, gave Adrian Dix as the No. 1 reason (36 per cent) followed by the party’s policies in general (24 per cent). And what would Dix do differently if he had it to do all over again? “Win the election.” Most lamentable aspect of media coverage of politics? “The tendency to look at public policy like sports — who’s up, who’s down.” Any regrets? “A lot of people are too negative about public life.” Proudest achievement as leader? “Defending working people.” On the latter score, he pointed to his decision to put higher education, career preparation and skills training at the forefront of the party platform throughout his time as leader. And he couldn’t help noting how this very week, the B.C. Liberals were playing catch-up by launching a major set of reforms for higher education, career preparation and — you guessed it — skills training. Now at the top of the public policy agenda and, as Dix would have it, “we forced it there.” Such are the fleeting satisfactions of service in Opposition, when you never got to form a government of your own.

Israel and the “A” Word

illary Clinton would never have used the word when she was US Secretary of State, because she still has presidential ambitions. John Kerry, the current Secretary of State, has no further ambitions in that direction, which may be why he dared to use the words “apartheid” and “Israel” in the same sentence. Or maybe he just didn’t realise that the world would hear about it. Kerry spoke last week to a group of high-ranking officials from the US, Europe and Japan known as the Trilateral Commission about the failure of his yearlong attempt to revive the “peace talks” between Israel and the Palestinians. Somebody at the meeting secretly recorded his comments, which were published by the Daily Beast on Monday, and suddenly he was in very hot water. What he said was that the long-sought “two-state solution” was the only real alternative to a “unitary” Israeli-ruled state that included all the territory between the Jordan river and the Mediterranean Sea – and ruled over millions of Palestinians in the territories that have been under Israeli military occupation since 1967. Those Palestinians, most of whom cannot remember a time when they did not live under Israeli control, have no political rights within Israel. The two-state solution, under negotiation off and on for the past twenty years, would give them a state of their own, but most people had despaired some time ago of getting Israel to agree to

Monday, May 5, 2014

an independent Palestine. Kerry had not, so he was surprised and disappointed when his efforts came to naught. That was why he blurted out the truth that American politicians are never supposed to acknowledge. He said that without the two-state solution, “a unitary [Israeli] state winds up either being an apartheid state with second-class [Palestinian] citizens – or it ends up being a state that destroys the capacity of Israel to be a Jewish state.” It was clumsily phrased, but the basic idea is common in both Israeli and Palestinian political disGwynne course. Even if Israel never formally annexes the occuDyer pied territories, it has been building Jewish settlements all over them for decades, and the Palestinian inhabitants are effectively controlled by the Israeli government. If this situation continues indefinitely, and the Palestinians must live out their lives as mere residents without no political rights, then they are in the same position as the black South Africans who lived all their lives under white rule without citizenship or the vote. That was the very essence of apartheid. Alternatively, of course, Israel might grant them citizenship and the vote: that’s what happened when apartheid ended in South Africa in 1994. But there are already a great many Palestinians living under Israeli rule, and their higher birth rate would make them a majority in in that “unitary” Israel in less than a generation. That might

or might not be a state where Jews were happy to live, but it would definitely no longer be a Jewish state. State Department officials tried to defend their boss’s comments for a few hours, but as the firestorm of protest by American Zionist organisations grew the Obama administration realised that Kerry had to be forced to apologise for speaking the truth. The story that they took him down into the White House basement and beat him with rubber hoses is probably untrue, but on Tuesday he recanted his heresy. “I do not believe,” Kerry said, “nor have I ever stated, publicly or privately, that Israel is an apartheid state or that it intends to become one.” Well, of course not. It’s not an apartheid state now because the non-citizen status of the Palestinians for the past 47 years is technically only temporary, pending the creation of their own state. And Israel has no intention of ever meeting the technical definition of an apartheid state, either, because that would be a public-relations disaster. However, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu seems convinced that he can avoid that outcome simply by hanging on to the occupied territories indefinitely but never formally annexing them, and many Israelis agree with him. They might even be right, but John Kerry doesn’t think so. Or at least, he didn’t until his own people worked him over a bit. Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist based in London.

Raptors’ surprising season comes to an end LORI EWING Canadian Press

TORONTO — Kyle Lowry scored 28 points, but missed on a shot at the buzzer as the Toronto Raptors lost Game 7 of their playoff series 104103 against the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday, ending their season. Amir Johnson had a playoff-high 20 points plus 10 boards before fouling out of the game with 7:53 to play. DeMar DeRozan added 18 points for the Raptors, who were gunning for the first second-round playoff appearance in the franchise’s 19-year history. Patrick Patterson finished with 16 points, while Terrence Ross had 11. Joe Johnson led the Nets with 26 points, while Marcus Thornton finished with 17. Deron Williams had 13 points,

Kevin Garnett had 12, and Paul Pierce 10. Toronto, desperate to keep its season going, played like it was feeling the pressure for much of the afternoon, trailing by as much as 12 points in the third quarter in front of an Air Canada Centre crowd that was hungry for a playoff series win. The Raptors trailed 81-73 going into the fourth, but a Toronto team that has been so strong down the stretch all season long, pulled within five on a basket by Lowry with 7:20 to play. With the fans on their feet for the final couple of minutes left, the Raptors kept their foot on the pedal and pulled within two points with 25 seconds left, after two free throws each from Patterson and Lowry. Williams went to the line

draining one for Brooklyn and it was a threepoint game with 22 seconds left. Lowry drove to the hoop for a basket to cut the deficit to a point, but Shaun Livingston made two free throws to put Brooklyn back up by three with 13 seconds to play. Ross answered with a basket, and the Raptors regained possession but Lowry was blocked at the final buzzer. Fans chanted “Let’s go Raptors!’’ as the dejected players left the court. The Raptors were making their first playoff appearance in six years, despite a season that begun with low expectations. The remarkable turnaround started in December when the Raptors traded Rudy Gay to Sacramento and they went on to win the

NHL PLAYOFFS

Penguins, Blackhawks earn Game 2 victories ASSOCIATED PRESS

PITTSBURGH — Kris Letang broke a scoreless tie in the second period, and Marc-Andre Fleury made 22 saves for his seventh playoff shutout to lift the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 3-0 victory over the New York Rangers on Sunday night, tying the second-round series one game apiece. Letang’s 15th career post-season goal matched Larry Murphy’s record for Penguins defencemen. Jussi Jokinen scored during a third-period power play, and Evgeni Malkin added an empty-net goal for the Penguins, who managed a home split in the first two games with the suddenly weary

Rangers. Game 3 is Monday night in New York. Henrik Lundqvist made 32 saves for New York, but the Rangers mustered little offence while playing their fourth game in six days. New York’s limp power play went 0 for 4 and hasn’t scored in 29 straight advantages. BLACKHAWKS 4, WILD 1 CHICAGO (AP) — Bryan Bickell had a goal and two assists, and Chicago beat Minnesota to take a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference semifinals. Brandon Saad scored his first two goals of the post-season, and Chicago earned its sixth consecu-

tive win despite stretches of lacklustre play in the second and third periods. Corey Crawford made 18 saves in another solid performance. Cody McCormick scored his second career playoff goal, but Minnesota missed another chance to steal home-ice advantage from the defending Stanley Cup champions. Jonathan Toews scored his fourth goal of the playoffs in the first period for the Blackhawks, who improved to 16-2 in home post-season games over the last two years. They are 5-0 at home in these playoffs. Game 3 is Tuesday night in Minnesota.

WHL FINAL

Portland takes 2-0 series lead over Edmonton CANADIAN PRESS

ROUTES IN KIMBERLEY:

beginning when the Nets sat their starters at the end of the regular season in order to drop to sixth in the East to face the Raptors — whom they saw as easier prey than Chicago.

PORTLAND, Ore. — Brendan Leipsic had a goal and an assist in his return from a one-game suspension, and the Portland Winterhawks defeated the Edmonton Oil Kings 3-1 in Game 2 of the Western Hockey League final Sunday. Portland leads the series 2-0, with Games 3 and 4 coming Tuesday and Wednesday in Edmonton. Chase De Leo and Paul Bitter also scored for Portland, while goaltender Corbin Boes made 28 saves in victory.

Henrik Samuelsson scored a third-period goal for Edmonton, which got 29 saves from Tristan Jarry in defeat. Portland has now won 24 straight games at home, including all eight in the post-season. De Leo opened the scoring 2:12 into the game with a long wrist shot that squeezed between the pads of Jarry. Leipsic scored his 13th goal of the playoffs 1:02 later to give Portland a 2-0 lead and force the Oil Kings to use their timeout. Bittner made it 3-0 at the 4:32

mark of the second period as his shot from just inside the blue-line hit Oil Kings defenceman Dysin Mayo and fluttered into the net. Samuelsson gave the Oil Kings a glimmer of hope when he deflected a shot by Ashton Sautner past Boes for a power-play goal with 6:28 remaining in regulation. Edmonton couldn’t pull any closer, though, despite a spirited push in the final minutes. The Oil Kings finished 1 for 3 with the man advantage, while Portland failed to convert on four power-play opportunities.

HOROSCOPES by Jacqueline Bigar

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You could be more in the mood for Cinco de Mayo than some of your friends who might hail from that culture. By midafternoon, you will help a friend relax and enjoy the mood of the celebration. Let go of a serious conversation for now. Tonight: Let the good times rock and roll. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Use the morning for any matter that is very serious and that could demand an important conversation or two. Just because you do not see eye to eye with someone does not mean you need to quarrel. Honor and respect your differences. Tonight: Hang out at home. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You might want to honor a change that is likely to make you feel a bit off-kilter. You could feel tense about a personal matter. Understand the liabilities of giving in to your feelings this afternoon -- you might not get anything done! Tonight: Go for the moment.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Initiate an important conversation, but avoid any bilateral comments that would add to the present discomfort level. You have an opportunity to clear the air, and you absolutely need to take it. Understand the dynamics of what is going on here. Tonight: Get into a celebration. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You could be excited by news that heads your way. Ponder this information with a greater eye to success and change. You won’t want to deny your innate creativity; however, you will need to think before you leap. Tonight: Look beyond the obvious for answers. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Friends play a significant role in your plans, whether you are at work or just off doing your own thing. You’ll have a lot to deal with when speaking to a key loved one or associate. In the afternoon, you might not want to share your ideas so openly. Tonight: Not to be found! LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Tundra

Defer to someone else, and remain open to the possibilities. You will discover the limitations of staying locked in a certain situation. Communication is likely to evolve with someone you trust, who has sound financial knowledge. Tonight: Say “yes” to a friend’s request. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Return calls in the morning. You could hear some interesting information or gossip, and you will need time to digest this news. Honor a change in plans without making it a big deal. You could get into a project but have difficulty switching gears. Tonight: Pace yourself. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You have a way of bringing out the best in people, no matter what goes down. You could see a situation in a totally new light after a conversation, and possibly from a different perspective after a talk with someone else. Absorb as much as possible. Tonight: Break patterns. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You’ll want to relate more directly to a loved one than you

have been able to in the past. Seize an opportunity to open up a conversation, and listen to the feedback you get. A situation around your domestic life could put a smile on your face. Tonight: Be with a favorite person. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Listen to news that comes from a parent or loved one. You might want to visit with someone at a distance and just enjoy life. Be content hanging out with your immediate circle. Laughter seems to surround a child or loved one. Enjoy it! Tonight: Stay anchored. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Examine what is going on in your immediate circle. You will want to have a conversation with a child or loved one as a result. Realize that a lot is happening around you that might not be easy to integrate into your plans. Tonight: Go along with someone’s suggestion. BORN TODAY Philosopher Karl Marx (1818), singer/songwriter Adele (1988), journalist Brian Williams (1959) ***

ANNIE’S MAILBOX by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: What do you do with an old and dear friend who now says something negative at every opportunity? “Lorene” and I live in different states, but used to be in touch daily by phone and on Facebook and have spent time together fairly often when she visits her family here. For years, we were as close as sisters. Then, last year, as Lorene prepared for a reunion with her high school class, she began to change toward me. She hurt my feelings a number of times with subtle snipes and negative comments and, eventually, with a snub that was so insulting, we had a falling out. We didn’t speak for some time, but I missed my friend and reconnected with her on Facebook. She welcomed my friend request, but ever since, the snipes and negative comments have been ongoing. If I post a photo from a lovely vacation somewhere, Lorene makes a negative comment about the place, the weather, the cost or that I was alone there. If I post about some activity I’m planning, she’s full of warnings and cautions. If I post an old family photo, she turns my happy memory into a feeling of loss, commenting about how sad it is that others in the photo died before me. When I tried to discuss her attitude, she became defensive and seemed to misunderstand me, so I dropped it. This is someone who used to call me every day to chat. We have many mutual friends, so it’s impossible to avoid her. I miss my friend and don’t understand where she went. Should I unfriend her on Facebook? Should I just “take it” in silence? What would you do? -- Mourning a Lost Friendship Dear Mourning: Might Lorene be having health issues that affect her personality? Suggest she talk to her doctor because you’re worried about her. Is she only negative about you? It could be jealousy or some long-forgotten argument. And it is not uncommon for some people, as they age, to develop a habit of complaining. Lorene may have no idea how she comes across. It is unlikely that she will ever be the woman you once knew. Can you accept her as she is, ignoring the negativity and focusing only on the good things? Would you rather limit contact, using Facebook to keep track of her, but without phone calls and visits? You don’t need to cut her off completely, but decide what her friendship is worth to you and respond accordingly. Dear Annie: In my community, there are a lot of “open house” parties, especially around the holidays. I was under the impression that we are invited to come and celebrate, have a glass of wine or whatever. But many of the people attending brought gifts for the hosts. I didn’t. Was this the proper thing to do? I believe your advice will help our retirement community. -- No Present Guest Dear No: Large, informal open-house parties where you drop by for a drink and leave do not necessitate a gift, but do write and thank your hosts afterward. Some people bring gifts anyway, and if this is the custom in your community (or if you would feel uncomfortable coming empty-handed), it’s perfectly OK to bring wine, candy or something small and holiday appropriate. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Is There Hope for Me?” who said her husband shows no affection toward her after 27 years of marriage. Everything was the way he wanted it. Her marriage sounds similar to mine. After 43 years, we are now in the process of divorcing. I have had more than enough of having it his way. I am a clergywoman and regret that I was not strong enough to make this move years ago. Yes, there’s hope. Do something. It’s your life. -- C.

She will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Joan (Gary), her granddaughter Sheri (Joe) and grandson David (Melissa). Kay was predeceased by her husband Philip in 1993. Kay was born in Bellevue on October 25, 1916 and spent her early years in Alberta and BC. She met her future husband Phil in Edmonton and, following their marriage in Cadomin on December 24, 1938, lived in Goldfields, Saskatchewan and Yellowknife, NWT. Kay and her family moved to Kimberley in 1949 where she lived happily until her passing. Kay was a long-time member of the Eagles in Kimberley and an active member of the Catholic Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s League at Sacred Heart Catholic Church. She also enjoyed camping, travelling with Phil and spending time at their summer property on Lazy Lake. The family would like to thank the staff at the Kimberley Special Care Home â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Pinesâ&#x20AC;? for the wonderful care she received during the past year. Cremation has taken place. A Funeral Mass for Kay will be held at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Kimberley on Friday, May 9, 2014 at 11:00 am. Her Interment will follow in the Kimberley Cemetery.

Gunda Lien was born in Ringebu, Norway, the youngest of 9 children of Knut and Pernilla Svendsen. In 1916 her mother died and at the age of 8 she traveled with her father and 4 of her siblings to New Brunswick, Canada, via Ellis Island, N.Y. Gunda lived in New Brunswick until as a young woman she moved west, first residing in Saskatchewan, then Alberta and finally B.C., for the past 72 years. She and her husband Karsten raised 3 children in Kimberley, B.C. After Karstenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death Gunda moved to Tswwassen to be closer to family. Gunda was a woman of great spirit, making friends easily with her quick wit and caring manner. She loved to cook and insisted â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;you stay to dinnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. There was always room for more at her table. She often said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If there is room in the heart there is room in the home.â&#x20AC;? During WW11, she often shared the family rations in care packages for overseas. Still, her family never seemed to go without. Always optimistic she showed great courage and strength during hard times and great joy during good times. Gunda was the matriarch of a large family and she was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hands onâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and an inspiration to every one of them, encouraging them to be the best they could be. Her summers were busy welcoming grandchildren to bake cinnamon buns and pick berries for her delicious pies.

Your community foundation.

Gundaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birthday parties became legendary within the family right up to her last celebration at 106 years. Gunda passed away at KinVillage. She was predeceased by her husband Karsten (1987) daughter Patricia (2003) and son-in-law Hugh Morris (2012). She is lovingly remembered by her son Bill (Ruth) Ratcliffe of Victoria, daughter Alice (Stan) Owen of Lynden, Wa. 7 grandchiildren and spouses, 14 great grand children and 12 great great grand children and their respective families and many relatives in Norway. A memorial service will be held at a later date. Donations may be made to KinVillage (Kinsmen), 5410 10th Ave, Delta, B.C. V4M 3X8.

We build endowment funds that benefit the community forever and help create personal legacies Investing in community for good and forever. 250.426.1119 www.cranbrookcf.ca

John Horgan put on steel-toed boots for his first public appearance as B.C. NDP leader, to emphasize his support for the jobs created by natural resource development. Speaking to reporters Friday after a tour of the Western Stevedoring port in North Vancouver, Horgan repeated his wait-and-see position on the proposed expansion of the TransMountain oil pipeline from Alberta to Burnaby, and emphasized his support for liquefied natural gas development. He said the B.C. Liberal government has placed too much emphasis on LNG exports, and it’s been “giving away” the province’s natural resources. “For the past 12 years the B.C. Liberals have seen a decrease in value from our resources coming back to the Crown, which means less financial resources for health care, for education and vital social programs,” Horgan said. “We need to change that. New Democrats historically have talked about the importance of the economy and our valuable

Juan de Fuca MLA John Horgan united the NDP caucus behind his leadership after a string of endorsements prompted Port Coquitlam MLA MIke Farnworth (right) to drop out. social programs. We have a disconnect in place now and I intend, over the next three years, to change that.” Premier Christy Clark left Friday for her fifth LNG sales trip to Asia, visiting Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong in

an effort to close more investment deals. Earlier this week a joint venture agreement was signed by Shell, PetroChina, Mitsubishi and Korea Gas to develop an LNG export terminal at Kitimat, with final investment decisions still up

to two years away. Horgan said the broad support for his leadership shows he has healed divisions over balancing economic growth with environmental protection. He added he will meet this summer with former

premier Mike Harcourt, who quit the party in April over its performance in the 2013 election. Asked this week about the acclamation of Horgan after veteran MLA Mike Farnworth dropped out of the lead-

ership, Clark said having a vigorous debate over leadership is “a sign of a healthy party. “I wish him luck,” Clark said. “It’s easier to go through unopposed but I don’t know if it helps you.”

Shawn Pogatchnik Associated Press

BELFAST — Sinn Fein party leader Gerry Adams was released without charge Sunday after five days of police questioning over his alleged involvement in a decades-old Irish Republican Army killing, an event that has driven a dangerous wedge into Northern Ireland’s unity government. The 65-year-old’s departure from the police’s main interrogation centre in Antrim, west of Belfast, was delayed two hours by a crowd of angry Protestants outside the front gate. The protesters waved Union Jack flags and held placards demanding justice for IRA victims — and roared with fury as a convoy of police armoured vehicles came into view. Dozens of officers — many sporting full riot gear with flame-retardant boiler suits, body

armour, helmets and shields — confronted the hardline Protestants, many covering their faces, as they tried to block Adams’ exit by sitting down in the roadway. After a 15-minute standoff, police escorted Adams out via a rear exit that the protesters could not see. Sinn Fein said Adams intended to hold a press conference in a Belfast hotel within hours. The investigation of Adams is not over, however, because police said they have sent an evidence file to Northern Ireland prosecutors for potential charges later. Sinn Fein said detectives questioned Adams about audiotaped interviews that IRA veterans gave to a Boston College oral history project. Some interviewees accused him of being the Belfast IRA commander who ordered the abduction, killing and secret

burial of Jean McConville in 1972. Police faced a Sunday deadline to charge or release Adams or seek a judge’s permission to extend his detention, a step they had already taken once on Friday when an initial deadline was due to expire. The IRA did not admit responsibility for killing McConville until 1999, when the underground organization defended its action by claiming she had been a British Army spy. Her remains were found accidentally in 2003 near a Republic of Ireland beach. An investigation three years later by Northern Ireland’s police complaints watchdog found no evidence she had been a spy. Sunday’s outcome — freedom but no official exoneration, with evidence bound for the Public Prosecution Service — suggested police

do believe Adams was an IRA commander, but do not have strong enough evidence to charge him with this. Police last charged Adams with IRA membership in 1978 following a firebomb attack on a hotel near Belfast that killed 12 Protestants, but those charges were dropped. British state prosecutors in Belfast would provide a second opinion. They could tell police either that no case could succeed based on existing evidence, recommend new avenues of investigation to strengthen the chances of a successful prosecution, or determine that charges should be filed. Typically however, when such evidence files are sent by police to prosecutors for complex terror-related cases, charges do not follow. Adams has always denied membership of the outlawed IRA. His

arrest weeks ahead of elections in both parts of Ireland infuriated his Irish nationalist party, which represents most of the Irish Catholic minority in Northern Ireland and is a growing left-wing opposition force in the Irish Republic. Sinn Fein warned it could withdraw its support for law and order in Northern Ireland, a threat condemned Sunday by the Protestant leader of the province’s power-sharing government, First Minister Peter Robinson. Speaking Sunday before Adams’ release, Robinson accused Sinn Fein of mounting “a despicable, thuggish attempt to blackmail’’ the police. “I warn Sinn Fein that they have crossed the line and should immediately cease this destructive behaviour,’’ Robinson said, suggesting that the future of

Northern Ireland’s government was at stake. Robinson’s Democratic Unionist Party agreed to share power with Sinn Fein in 2007 on condition that the IRA-linked party accepted police authority. A former IRA commander, Martin McGuinness, serves as deputy leader. Such cross-community co-operation following four decades of bloodshed was the central goal of the U.S.-brokered Good Friday peace accord of 1998. Robinson accused Sinn Fein of hypocrisy by demanding criminal investigations of killings committed by Protestant militants, the police and British Army, but rejecting any such investigations into the IRA, which killed nearly 1,800 people during a failed 1970-1997 campaign to force Northern Ireland out of the United Kingdom.
