Sun Mine information Council votes to release as much financial information as possible C AROLYN GR ANT Bulletin Editor

Kimberley residents will soon have more information on the Sun Mine Project as City Council voted Monday to release as much information as is legally possible. Coun. Darryl Oakley made the motion, saying that he understands under the Community Charter that some information cannot be released. “I just want to release what can be released. I get asked so often about the Sun Mine project. It has been going on for some time.” “I suspect within two or three weeks we will be able to release the whole thing,” said Mayor Ron McRae, just prior to Council voting unanimously to support Oakley’s motion. Kimberley voters approved the borrowing of up to $2 million for the Sun Mine in a referendum held at the time of the last election in 2011.

Four years since Mayook double homicide RCMP are still seeking tips in the May 2010 murder case as family of Leanne MacFarlane and Jeffrey Taylor wait for answers Townsman Staff

It has been four years since Leanne Mac-

Farlane and Jeffrey Taylor were killed in a house just outside Cranbrook in what police call a horrendous case of mistaken identity. MacFarlane, 43, and Taylor, 42, had been living in the rental house beside the Highway 3/93 rest stop in Mayook for three months on May 29, 2010. That morning, the couple were shot in their home. MacFarlane died at the scene; Taylor died of his injuries later that day. Po-


lice quickly determined it was a case of mistaken identity. No arrests have ever been made, and Cpl. Jason Smart with the Southeast District Major Crimes Unit said the RCMP is still very much investigating the case. “We are still actively investigating this matter. It’s not something we have ever stopped investigating; we will continue on with this until we get some kind of resolu-

tion,” said Cpl. Smart. Major Crimes is based in Kelowna, but investigates serious crimes throughout the B.C.’s southern interior. Cpl. Smart heads a team of investigators that regularly travels to Cranbrook to pursue tips on the case. “We are still getting tips and we are still following up and we have a team dedicated to solving this,” he said.

Tuesday afternoon for the East and West Kootenays. A high streamflow advisory means that river levels are rising or expected to rise rapidly, but that no major flooding is expected. Minor flooding in low-lying areas is possible. City of Cranbrook Public Works staff was actively monitoring the water levels in Joseph Creek Wednesday and will continue to do so through the weekend. Public Works, in partnership with the Regional District of East Kootenay, is also continuing to monitor the water levels at Elizabeth Lake. Pumping operations are expected to be in place through the weekend, so vehicle access across Wattsville Road will continue to be impeded. The City of Cranbrook is again reminding its residents and property owners who have historically been affected by spring flooding, especially in low lying areas of the city, to plan ahead and take any necessary precautions should any flooding occur. For those who wish to have some sandbags

Joseph Creek: Levels are high and getting higher. handy as a precaution, both sandbags and sand is available beside the City Public Works yard on Cobham Avenue. Residents are encouraged to bring their own shovels to fill the sandbags. As always at this time of year, use extreme caution around waterways. Parents are strongly encouraged to talk to their children about the dangers of fast moving

water and have them keep well away from any water sources.

Greenjobs BC town hall in Kimberley June 5 Kimberley Conference Centre C AROLYN GR ANT Bulletin Editor

GreenJobs BC is travelling the province holding townhall events to talk about a green economy and the possibility for creating local jobs that are good for the economy and environment. The next stop for the townhalls is Kimberley on Thursday, June 5, 7 p.m. at the Conference Centre. Speakers include BC Federation of Labour Secretary-Treasurer Irene Lanzinger, BCGEU President and GreenJobs BC co-chair Darryl Walker, and Pembina Institute Strategic Advisor Ellen Pond. What is a green job? A green job, also called a green-collar job is, according to the United Nations Environment Program, “work in agricul-

tural, manufacturing, research and development (R&D), administrative, and service activities that contribute(s) substantially to preserving or restoring environmental quality. GreenJobs BC believes there are opportunities for green jobs in construction ie, green building and retrofits; with the right mix of policies in green transportation; green forestry jobs such as higher value forest product manufacturing and tree planting; and jobs in clean and energy and conservation rather than fossil fuel jobs. “Creating green jobs is a very real option for BC, but we need to hear from communities about how to work together to achieve this. These conversations will contribute to a vision for a green economy that includes all of BC, from cities to resource communities,” says GreenJobs BC co-chair Lisa Matthaus of Organizing for Change.

Cost estimates questioned C AROLYN GR ANT Bulletin Editor

Kimberley City Council spent some time discussing emergencies this week — and just what taking funding from other projects to deal with emergencies meant in the long term. Council dealt with two such situations Monday evening, the first being transferring $224,739 from a couple of different trunk line and sewer line projects, and

the sewer reserve fund, to deal with the Pollution Control Centre upgrade project; and also a transfer of $60,000 from the 301/309 Avenue water main project to deal with a break in the water main near Mackenzie Street under Mark Creek. That latter amount of $60,000 was a “first look” estimate on the cost of fixing the water main. “I would like to see a conversation on these emergencies,” said Coun. Darryl Oakley. “We are

transferring funds but what is the impact on the projects we are transferring from? We need a clearer picture of all our infrastructure, above and below ground. I am yearning to have that discussion.” Coun. Don McCormick said he was concerned at the first look estimate, and feared the project would cost a lot more. He said he’d like to have a more accurate cost estimate before making a decision.

Volunteer Appreciation Awards and Gala

Volunteerism honoured with Olympic speaker Arne Petryshen Townsman Staff

Olympic medalist Clara Hughes said the stigma surrounding mental health is something that needs to be dissolved and volunteers are the ones who are working to do it. Hughes was the keynote speaker at the Volunteer Appreciation Awards and Gala at St. Eugene on Tuesday Night, attended by over 250 people. It was hosted by the Canadian Mental Health Association Kootenays and Investors Group, as well as a number of other sponsors. The night was about honouring the outstanding volunteers and there were four categories. Youth Volunteer of the Year was awarded to Jelena Jensen. Shirley Yurchychyn was honoured with the award for volunteer of the year. Volunteer Family of the Year was the Farquhar family. Volunteer group of the year was the Kimberley Arts Council. Hughes said volunteers give their time and energy because they want to make a difference. The cyclist and speed skater spoke about the hardships she faced with depression as a young athlete, as well as the challenges that others like her sister with bipolar disorder and father

who struggled with substance abuse, have faced when dealing with mental illness and the sigma that still accompanies it. She said everyone is impacted by it. “If it is not us, then it is someone we know,” she said, adding the work of education and advocating for eliminating and reducing stigma is happening largely through volunteerism. Hughes has completed over 6,000 kilometres of Clara’s Big Ride, and has another 4,000 to go. The ride is a part of Bell Let’s Talk. She said she’s seen good things happening in the realm of mental health in all the communities she’s stopped at. “It is different in every single place, but what is common in every place is the absolute caring and determination of citizens to make a difference, to not wait for government funding to come in, to not wait for big bills to pass or things to happen. People are making it happen,” Hughes said. Hughes represented Canada in many summer and winter Olympics. She carried the flag into the stadium and had the best speed skating race of her career at the Vancouver Olympics, but she said it was the volunteers that stood out. “They always put a smile on my face,” she said. “So to be here tonight to applaud and to award volunteerism is something that I am so happy to be a part of.”

Fourth anniversary of Mayook double homicide From page 1 At the time of the double homicide, RCMP said the home that MacFarlane and Taylor were renting had until recently been lived in by one of the men charged in connection with a shooting outside the Sam Steele Hotel in October 2009. Three Cranbrook men were found guilty in a conspiracy to commit murder trial in April 2013 in a gang-related crime connected to the Mayook homicide, but that trial does not resolve the murder of MacFarlane and Taylor, Cpl. Smart said. “(The conspiracy trial) was separate to the homicide investigation.” It’s important that anyone in the community with information connected to the homicide, however small, come forward, he went on. “This was two innocent people in a case of mistaken identity. It was a horrendous act of violence. I would hope that if people did have information, that they would forward it on to their local RCMP,” said Cpl. Smart. Both victims have family members who are desperate to see charges laid against those who murdered their loved ones. “It is obviously emotionally tough for their family members. It’s been four years and it’s still hard on them.” You can anonymously report tips through East Kootenay Crime Stoppers, phone 1-800-222-TIPS

(8477), the Cranbrook RCMP detachment at 250-489-3471, email or online at www.cintek. com/crimestoppers/ tips.html.

A Facebook group has been set up related to the crime. Find it by searching Facebook for “Leanne MacFarlane and Jeffrey Taylor-May 29 2010 unsolved murder

case”. “We follow up every lead. Every tip or bit of information we get, we follow it up,” said Cpl. Smart.

Host an International Student! Add an international flavour to your home this fall by hosting an international student studying at Parkland, Laurie or Mount Baker schools. Most students come from Germany, Mexico, Brazil and Japan and stay for one semester or one school year. Placements for September are arranged in June. For an information package, please contact Ulli Murtagh at or (250) 489-3866.

What about Hosting Two Students? We encourage empty-nester parents or any family to consider hosting two students from different countries. Such double placements are consistently very successful. Host families receive a tax-free allowance of $660 per student per month and vacation coverage is available.

Posters asking for tips in the case have been put up in town.

Spider senses are tingling O Barry Coulter

ur Kootenay-Columbia Member of Parliament, David Wilks, was in the news briefly this week. The Canadian Bar Association and Criminal Lawyers’ Association on Tuesday were criticising surveillance powers in the government’s anti-cyberbullying bill, Bill C-13. At one point, Michael Spratt of the CLA tangled with MP Wilks about the use of one’s spider senses (the following is taken from the Globe and Mail). “What we want to avoid is police obtaining personal and private information based on their spidey senses, which happens all the time and the courts have a dim view on that,” Mr. Spratt said, speaking about the new powers in the bill. Mr. Wilks, interrupting, said: “As a police officer, my spidey senses, as you [call] them, are the one and only thing that will allow me sometimes to move forward in an investigation that will eventually bring forward more information in a case.” Well, indeed. While there are likely flaws in Bill C-13, I must agree with MP Wilks that instincts, hunches and gut feelings should not be discounted — though no one expects them to stand up in court. I know my instinctive reactions to a problem have often guided me to a decision. Not always 100 per

MP David Wilks cent for the better, of course. For our older readers, “spider senses,” or “spidey senses,” are one of the superhuman attributes of the amazing Spiderman, a rather palooka-like everyman who was bitten by a radioactive spider in his youth developed superpowers, which set him on a career of fighting crime (crimes usually committed by supervillains). “My ‘spidey senses’ are tingling*,” meant there was immediate danger, present but hidden. So no wonder MP Wilks, a former cop, would understand the value of spidey senses. I understand their value as well. But the term “spidey senses” elicits something electric, a tingling announcing that “action will soon be your reward,” as

Barry COulter


the song says (“Your Friendly Neighbourhood Spiderman”). In my case, my warning signals manifest themselves as a heavy pain in my belly, like a snake has hatched in there and is squirming around. A hypothetical situation: I have to decide whether to publish a certain piece in the newspaper. There is something dangerous about it — perhaps it’s potentially libelous. My reaction upon reading it will be unpleasant twisting in my guts, with the thought that if the piece is not published — if it is killed — an unhappy situation will result. If it is published, something even worse will result. In my hard-won experience, I have learned that this is usually how it plays out, and so

I have learned to trust my spidey senses — or rather, the snake in my belly. Following the spidey senses doesn’t stand up in the court of the angry writer. But that’s better than ending up in a real court. But enough of all these spiders and snakes. The important point is that the Amazing Spiderman and the cool things he says have entered our lexicon. “Spidey senses” has become part of our everyday speech, and Spiderman an awesome linguistic role model (“Is he strong? Listen, bud! He’s got radioactive blood!”). * In Spanish, the term is “mi sentido aracnido zumba.” I learned that from reading a Mexican Spiderman comic.

Opinion/Events Letters to the Editor

More political ghosts

I read with considerable interest the Canadian Press article, “B.C. court overturns acquittals for former MP’s campaign official” included in the May 22 edition of the Townsman. Violations of the Canada Elections Act by the local Kootenay-Columbia Conservative campaign in 2006 and 2008 have been confirmed by the B.C. Supreme Court. In March of 2011 I wrote a letter to the Fernie Free Press called “Political Ghosts”. It outlines the local connection to the national Conservative campaign’s “in and out” financing scheme during the 2006 federal election. Former MP Jim Abbott’s campaign, along with 66 other Conservative campaign teams were investigated by Elections Canada for allegedly making fraudulent campaign expenses during the 2006 election. When summoned to appear before a Parliamentary Ethics Committee in August 2008, MP Abbott’s Official Agent refused to appear. Many of his Conservative colleagues also refused to appear before the Committee. After Elections Canada investigated dozens of Conservative campaigns following the 2006 and 2008 elections and then investigated the national Conservative Party’s role in the voter suppression scandal during the 2011 election (one that was expanded to include 247 ridings), it seems clear why Stephen Harper continues to wage such an unprecedented war against the oversight function of the Chief Electoral Officer and Elections Canada. Right now, sitting before the House Of Commons is a new piece of Conservative legislation called the Fair Elections Act (an Orwellian twist of language to be sure). Passage of the Bill would strip Elections Canada of many of its oversight and investigative powers and severely restrict the independence of the Chief Electoral Officer. Echoing the past, one day the Canadian public will ask itself how it elected a government that continues to oppress it in the name of electoral reform and national security. Brent Bush Kimberley

Council business

In response to G. Neil Sinclair, re: “Council Priorities” (Townsman, May 22), I’d like to clarify the role of council as we “take care of city business first and foremost.” City staff provides council with updates on city-related matters so that we can respond by making informed decisions. What other levels of governments do affects municipalities directly. Advocating with other governments/respective agencies, on behalf of our citizens, is a municipal function. It is common practice for municipalities across B.C. to raise concerns with provincial and federal governments, including through the Union of B.C. Municipalities. Councillors can and should be catalysts to move those needs along. For example, while child care is a provincial and federal responsibility, it directly affects the lives of many Cranbrook residents, now at a critical level. It’s an economic barrier that prevents some people from moving here, staying here, or taking jobs due to lack of child care. This is my concern. The Child Care Needs Assessment initiative only requires time, which I gladly volunteer, especially if it will make Cranbrook more livable. Reduced postal services impact seniors, disabled persons, and security of personal information. Council is addressing this with Canada Post. Mr. Sinclair’s statement, “Perhaps the councillors with strong feelings on issues such as these should run for provincial or federal office. Then we could have councillors who put items such as infrastructure first”, discredits the role mayor and council play in

listening to citizens’ concerns, and then advancing those issues on their behalf. As a responsible council, we focus taxpayers’ dollars on the basics. We are also concerned about all aspects of having a healthy, well-rounded, and vibrant community. Sharon Cross, Councillor City of Cranbrook

On belief

Referring to Reverend Yme’s article in the Townsman, May 16, 2014: I was brought up to believe without question that the Bible is the inspired, eternal word of God — “no jot or tittle shall be added to or taken away.” Of course, my belief was completely shattered when I discovered that, not only were there several versions of the Bible but those English words which we regarded with such reverence were not in use anywhere in the world, and had not even been invented when those thoughts were originally recorded. The whole concept became suspect. Today I am always intrigued to meet somebody who is able to accept what I found totally untenable 75 years ago. Rev. Yme’s article refers to the flood: it is interesting to note that the Biblical version of that “event” attributes it to God’s decision that he had made an awful mistake... “And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart” (Genesis 6:6).

Volunteer of the Year

What joy is in my heart this day! Last evening my family was honoured by the Cranbrook division of the Canadian Mental Health Association at their gala at St Eugene’s Pavilion. To be present to hear Clara Hughes speaking was reward enough but that followed with our family being named ‘Volunteer Family of the Year 2014’ – being honoured for doing what we love doing! I have always been a collector of hugs and through volunteering I probably have the world’s largest collection! Thanks to those who nominated us and Medichair who sponsored the award. P.S. I am still expanding my hug collection! Myra Farquhar Kimberley

I sense when you are struggling with a task. Withdrawn, a lack of energy you show. To others, you may just assume a mask. But because I am your teacher, I know. When you excel, I share in your success. When things don’t work, for you I make a change. My goal: for you to learn without the stress. To the world an asset, your goal long-range.

Local mountain biker wins gold at provincials TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Hannah van der Roest made it a clean sweep last weekend, winning her fourth consecutive gold medal in cross-country at the 2014 high school mountain bike provincials in Burns Lake. In addition to her cross-country gold, she added a silver in the shorter enduro course, and she also earned an award recognizing her leadership and dedication. “It’s a complete set for me, I’ve won every year,” said van der Roest. “As far as provincial champion goes, I’ve managed to hold that for my entire span of high school.” In addition to her gold medal in the cross-country race, she also was tapped for the Mark Hume Award, which is given to an athlete who embodies dedi-

cation and leadership in mountain biking. “It was a real honour to get that award, I wasn’t expecting it at all,” van der Roest said. “…”I cried and it was awesome.” Hosted by Lakes District Secondary School, riders across the province had a fun four-cross track timed runs last Friday, with the main cross-country and enduro races on Saturday. “Burns Lake is amazing trail-wise, there’s an amazing maze of trails and the course was really fun,” said van der Roest. “The course was perfect for provincials, it wasn’t so technical that beginner riders were going to go kill themselves on the trail, but a mountain biker would win because you had to have skill.” The cross-country was a fast and challenging 10-kilometre loop for Grades 10-12, with a

Everyone in Grade 10-12 for boys and girls line up at the same time on the 10 km course, which makes for an interesting start, van der Roest said. “The start is always really intense and you’ve


got the adrenaline going,” she continued. “…After this tiny loop, I started to get into my legs and I refused to look behind me, so whenever I heard the squeak of brakes, I always thought, ‘It’s a girl, go faster, go faster.’” She finished in just under 40 minutes, which was her goal.

“It was exhausting. Halfway through the race I thought I was going to fall over and die, but I didn’t.” Van der Roest also competed in the enduro, a technical downhill race that throws a lot of terrain challenges in the path of the rider, and finished in second place. She was joined by her

Hawks stay alive with double OT win over Kings Jay Cohen Associated Press

CHICAGO - Michal Handzus is every day of 37 years old and 15 seasons in the NHL. He knows he’s near the end of his career. He knows he’s slower than most of his Chicago teammates. He also knows how to finish a play in a big spot. Handzus scored at 2:04 of the second overtime, and the Blackhawks beat the Los Angeles Kings 5-4 in Game 5 on Wednesday night to stay alive in the Western Conference final. Brandon Saad made a nice pass to the middle, and the oldest player on the ice beat goaltender Jonathan Quick with a backhander for his second goal of the playoffs. The Slovak centre celebrated by pounding the boards

behind the net as the sellout crowd of 21,871 roared. “Saad, two guys went on him and I got open,” Handzus said. “I was surprised I got open like that but he waited and waited and gave me a great pass.” Handzus has been all over Chicago’s lines all season long as the Blackhawks searched for a second-line centre behind captain Jonathan Toews. His biggest value right now is on the penalty kill, but it was his offence that kept alive Chicago’s title defence. “I want to help the team as much as I can,” Handzus said. “I’m playing on the PK a lot. I’m not playing very well offensively. I’m glad I came through.” Saad had a goal and two assists to help Chi-

cago stop a three-game losing streak. Brent Seabrook, Johnny Oduya and Ben Smith also scored, and Patrick Kane set a playoff career high with four assists. “Personally, I thought Saader was the best player on the ice tonight,” Kane said. “He was bringing so much speed and puck protection.” Game 6 is Friday night in Los Angeles.

“We go home and we come out with a better effort,” Kings defenceman Jake Muzzin said. “We’ve got some experience and veterans in here who know what it takes to stop it.” Marian Gaborik and Dustin Brown each had a goal and an assist, and Jarret Stoll and Tanner Pearson also scored for the Kings, who led 4-3 after two periods. It was Gaborik’s NHL-best

11th playoff goal. Quick and Chicago’s Corey Crawford each stopped 40 shots. Los Angeles was in position to advance to its second Stanley Cup final in three years before Smith drove to the net and swept in a rebound 1:17 into the third. Smith’s third goal of the playoffs set the stage for a frantic finish as both sides pushed for the winning score.

Rangers D-man suspended for two games C anadian Press

NEW YORK - The NHL has suspended New York Rangers defenceman John Moore for two games for his for an illegal check to the head on Montreal forward Dale Weise in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference final. Moore was given a major penalty and ejected from Tuesday night’s game at Montreal’s Bell Centre when,

at 10:41 of the third period, he nailed Weise with a blindside open-ice hit that was almost identical to Montreal forward Brandon Prust’s unpenalized hit on Derek Stepan in Game 3. Weise’s helmet was knocked off after Tuesday night’s hit and he was wobbly when he got up, with teammate P.K. Subban grabbing him in a bear hug for support.

PARIS - Milos Raonic bounced back from a troublesome first match and Eugenie Bouchard overcame a worrying first set as Canada’s top singles tennis players drew on mental toughness to advance to the third round of the French Open. Bouchard managed a 2-6, 6-2, 6-1 comefrom-behind win over German Julia Goerges on Wednesday, while eighth-seeded Raonic beat Czech Jiri Vesely 7-6 (4), 6-4, 6-1 to reach the third round for a third consecutive year. Raonic, from Thornhill, Ont., came back from a break down in the first set and won the hour-long opener in a tiebreak before taking control of the match. Raonic said he is noticing signs of improvement on court after struggling somewhat in his opening match, a 6-3, 7-6, 6-3 win over Australian qualifier Nick Kyrgios. “I feel like I’m playing better today than I did three days ago, I think I dealt a little bit better with when I got things figured out as far

as intensity,” he said. “I held it on a little bit better where I struggled a little bit with my match three days ago. The court is playing a little bit slower than you would expect here in Paris, but it’s been going well so far.” Raonic’s third-round opponent is 29th seed Gilles Simon of France, who will have a partisan crowd behind him. “It’s going to be tough,” Raonic said. Raonic and Simon have only faced each other once before, with Raonic winning on clay at the 2011 Estoril Open in Portugal. Bouchard struggled in the first set before rallying to join Raonic in the third round. “I wasn’t worried after the first, I just took my time,” said Bouchard. “I just really tried to forget about that I lost the first set and just start fresh. That’s what I did for the second and third.” The 18th seed from Montreal will play Swede Johanna Larsson, who upset 12th-seeded Italian Flavia Pennetta 5-7, 6-4, 6-2.

Pacers stave off elimination with 93-90 win over Heat Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS Paul George scored 31 of his 37 points in the second half Wednesday night and almost single-handedly kept the Indiana Pacers alive in the Eastern Conference finals with a 93-90 victory over the Miami Heat. The Pacers still trail 3-2 in the best-of-seven series. Game 6 will be played Friday night in Miami. It took a frantic effort

just to extend the series, even with the foulplagued LeBron James held to just seven points in 23 minutes. Chris Bosh led the Heat with 20 points missed a potential go-ahead 3-pointer in the closing seconds. Indiana turned a 50-41 deficit into a 64-57 lead after three, then led by as much as 11 in the fourth. But Miami’s lastditch rally made it 91-90 with 16 seconds to go before Indiana held on.

Woods pulls out of U.S. Open Associated Press

DUBLIN, Ohio Tiger Woods has withdrawn from the U.S. Open as he recovers from back surgery that has kept him out of golf for nearly three months. Woods says on his website Wednesday he is physically unable to play golf at a high level. The announcement

was not a surprise. Woods said a week ago while promoting the Quicken Loans National tournament at Congressional that he still has not taken a full swing with a golf club. He had microdiscectomy surgery March 31. Woods last played a tournament at Doral on March 9.

CFL and players’ union to resume labour negotiations Dan R alph Canadian Press

TORONTO - The CFL and its players are going into overtime in their collective bargaining talks. After spending more than 12 hours in meetings together and separately Wednesday, the two sides agreed to reconvene Thursday at an airport hotel. “It has been a long day of meetings,” CFL commissioner Mark Cohon said. “We’re going to resume (Thursday) morning, which is a good thing.” It’s certainly a far cry

from what happened the last time the CFL and its players met. On May 21, they gathered for roughly 10 minutes as the league informed the CFL Players’ Association it was rejecting its latest offer before going public with the details of its last proposal to the union. But there was no quick end to Wednesday’s session. The league and players held multiple face-to-face sessions but also spent a lot of time separately, with a conciliation officer being seen going from one party to the other. It was the first time

that news of a conciliation officer being involved in talks surfaced. Also, Cohon attended the sessions with the CFL’s bargaining unit, which also consisted of chief operation officer Michael Copeland, Saskatchewan Roughriders president Jim Hopson, Calgary Stampeders president Ken King, and CFL legal counsel Steve Shamie. The CFLPA’s negotiating team was made up of president Scott Flory, vice-presidents Marwan Hage and Jeff Keeping, treasurer Brian Ramsay and legal counsel Ed

Molstad. The CFL’s current collective bargaining agreement expires at midnight ET on Thursday. Flory has said the players won’t suit up under the terms of the existing deal, meaning the two sides would either have to reach a new contract or at least be close for training camps to open on time Sunday. The league and players met Wednesday morning but spent the bulk of the afternoon apart before resuming face-to-face talks later in the evening. That session ended after roughly an

hour, with the CFL committee leaving for an alternate location. At one point, the conciliation officer and Shamie both could be seen walking towards the union’s meeting room, but the league lawyer left shortly afterwards. Revenue sharing is the main stumbling block in the negotiations, with the players wanting it back to help determine the salary cap each year. The CFLPA had revenue sharing in previous agreements but gave it up in the last deal signed before the 2010 season. Cohon has said the

Blue Jays beat Rays 3-2 to extend winning streak Gregory Strong Canadian Press

TORONTO - The Toronto Blue Jays extended their winning streak to nine games in dramatic fashion Wednesday night with a 3-2 walk-off victory over the Tampa Bay Rays at Rogers Centre. With pinch-runner Kevin Pillar aboard after Dioner Na-

varro opened the bottom of the ninth with a single, Anthony Gose dropped a nice bunt down the first-base line. Reliever Juan Carlos Oviedo (1-1) threw wide to first and Pillar came all the way around to score the winning run. Aaron Loup (2-1) worked one inning of relief for the win as Toronto completed a three-

game sweep. The American League East-leading Blue Jays improved to 32-22 while the Rays fell to 23-31. Toronto struck early with two runs in the first inning. Jose Reyes kicked off Tampa Bay starter Chris Archer’s 26-pitch frame with a single up the middle. He moved to third when Jose

Bautista hit a flare into shallow right field and both runners scored on Edwin Encarnacion’s single. The Rays tied it in the second inning. Matt Joyce took a Liam Hendriks pitch off the centre-field wall for a double and Wil Myers followed with a two-run shot, his fifth homer of the season.

league won’t agree to revenue sharing because it doesn’t have sufficient revenues and profits for the model to work effectively. After decades of financial woes, the CFL is enjoying economic prosperity. It has a new contract extension with athletic apparel giant Reebok. One of its teams (Winnipeg) moved into a new stadium last season and another (Hamilton) is scheduled to do so this year, the same time expansion Ottawa will return and play at a refurbished facility. And with attendance continuing to rise and corporate sponsorships remaining strong, the CFL is buoyed by a lucrative five-year television agreement with TSN, reportedly worth an average of $42 million annually, that kicks in this season. That deal alone will reportedly net clubs an extra $2.7 million each this season. There has been one

players’ strike since the formation of the CFLPA in 1965. It came in ‘74 and lasted three weeks during training camp before a three-year agreement was signed with no regular-season games lost. The ‘14 regular season is scheduled to open June 26. The league has offered to boost the average player salary by 12 per cent this season to $92,917 with a further increase over the following five years. The salary cap would increase by nine per cent from $4.4 million to $4.8 million per team while the average salary would go up $5,000 to $50,000 with a further increase to $55,000 over the following five years. The salary cap would also rise by $100,000 per team if the CFL receives more television revenue from TSN under a renegotiated broadcast agreement for each remaining year of the collective bargaining agreement.

Saying one thing and meaning another Part One Of Two Dear Wendy: My friend had a reading with you and has been telling me that she finds you sincere, honest and trustworthy. I have read a few of your columns and I find that you say one thing but mean another. What I am talking about is how you describe heaven and how wonderful it is. You then say how sad you are when your mother died and you felt lonely and vulnerable. I don’t understand how you can say one thing and then feel delighted about the other when you are talking about heaven. Are you saying you are afraid of death? I don’t know if I believe in heaven or not. I am in my third year of wanting to become a psychiatrist and I am tossing around the idea of: is there really a heaven and a hell? I am

questioning my ideals on religion and who and what I am and what I believe in. I wanted to email you about these few queries and what you think. You don’t have to put this email in the paper if you do not want to and you do not have to respond to my email as well if you feel uncomfortable discussing these issues. Capable and Curious Dear Capable and Curious: Let’s clear up the first issue about how I feel about heaven and my mother’s passing over. I channel over to the other side or heaven at least two times a week. I have told those who have chosen to come to us (by us I mean myself and my guides) for information that no one would know but them and the person or people on the other side. How do I know these things? I have no idea how I know these things.

ASK WENDY Wendy Evano

I hear my guides give me the information and then I tell my client what they have said. What that is called is pure unadulterated faith in my guides and the information they have relayed to me. This faith and relationship that is so pure has come with many years of not following what they have told me to do in my life and living to regret many of my decisions. My personal relationship with my God, guides and angels is one that I have worked very hard to achieve. When I channel over to the other side I see many different types of landscapes and sceneries and all are beautiful and the colours so vivid


and the architectural structures are stunning. I see what I see and I hear what I hear and there is confirmation after confirmation from others that I am correct with the information I am channelling to them. So yes, it is beautiful in heaven and everyone is at peace and comfortable. There are only the emotions of love and truth; that’s the wonderful part. The sad part is

ed to her everyday. I learned so much before she passed over the last few days of her life, which I may some day share with others. My psychic abilities have enabled me to make peace at a faster pace than some others on this plane. However, it had taken me 11 months to accept that my mom passed over and I will not be able to talk to her in person again on this plane in this life-

time. That bothers me like it bothers every other human on this plane when they lose someone they love. Unfortunately, I am running out of space for this week’s column and will discuss the rest of your questions with you next week. Wendy

regional NEWS Fernie girl to co-host telethon Bodies of missing Slocan Nicole Obre Fernie Free Press

Tune in to Global BC this weekend and you might spot a familiar face. Fernie local Brooke Malakoff is co-hosting the BC Children’s Hospital’s Miracle Weekend Telethon. It’s going to be a jampacked weekend for 19-year-old Brooke. She will be interviewed by Elaine Yong Thursday night, appear on the morning news with Steve Darling Friday morning, and act as a youth host for the telethon live from the BC Children’s Hospital Saturday night. Brooke is excited to spend her weekend of fame in Vancouver with her mom, Rochelle Simmons, and step-father, George Torresani. “Instead of donating money we’re kind of donating our time and our story; putting a face to what really goes on behind the scenes,” said Brooke. Brooke was originally diagnosed with a benign tumour on her lung just before Christmas of 2011. Shortly after, Brooke’s condition worsened and the tumour was re-diagnosed as malignant. She was flown to Vancouver for emergency surgery, and while she lost her left lung in the process, the operation was successful. Brooke returned home to Fernie to finish her last year of high school, but just a few short months later, she learned that her cancer had returned. Brooke has spent the last few years undergoing treatment on and off at the BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver and in Cranbrook. But after undergoing DNA testing that suggested she try a new chemotherapy treatment, things are starting to look up. “I had a rough patch with chemo last December, and then things got

Her most recent PET scan showed visible results. “We finally found out

that it’s actually working!” said Brooke. “We can look at the PET scan and actually see a difference,” commented Rochelle. “She’s doing really well and we’re continuing to see improvement.” It was the light at the end of a long tunnel for Brooke and her family. “Just over a year ago, we were basically told

that this tumour would take Brooke’s life,” Rochelle said. “We were grasping at straws. It was just a matter of prolonging her life, keeping her comfortable, and keep trying things.” And the good news just kept on coming. “My doctor in Vancouver said, if you’re feeling this well, and you continue to be doing this well, then you could probably be able to go back to work,” said Brooke. But the family remains cautious and realistic about Brooke’s progress. “For us, Brooke has cancer still. She takes chemo every day and there’s always that constant reminder, but when you look at her and see how good she looks, we’re just rolling with that right now,” remarked Rochelle. Catch Brooke as she co-hosts the Miracle Weekend Telethon this Saturday, from 10 p.m. until midnight Mountain Time, on Global BC.

The bodies of the three males who perished in Slocan Lake on May 10 were successfully recovered Wednesday, May 28. The recovery efforts involved Ralston and Associates, Arrow Lakes Search and Rescue plus the RCMP dive team. The BC Coroners Department has now assumed control of the investigation. The bodies were located in approximately 500 feet of water. According to a police press release, the “good weather this morning made recovery efforts much easier than anticipated.” The families of the youth have all been advised of

Google to build prototype car controlled by computers, not driver Justin Pritchard Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Google plans to build and launch onto city streets a small fleet of subcompact cars that could operate without a person at the wheel. Actually, the cars wouldn’t even have a wheel. Or gas and brake pedals. The company says the vehicles will use sensors and computing power, with no human needed. Google Inc. hopes that by this time next year, 100 of the two-seaters will be on public roads, following extensive testing. The cars would not be for sale and instead would be provided to select operators for further tweaking and have

limitations such as a 25 mph top speed. The announcement presents a challenge to automakers that have been more cautious about introducing fully automated driving and to government regulators who are scrambling to accommodate self-driving cars on public roads. Other companies are working on the technology but none as large as Google has said it intends to put such cars in the hands of the public so soon. To date, Google has driven hundreds of thousands of miles on public roads and freeways in Lexus SUVs and Toyota Priuses outfitted with special sensors and cameras. But with a “safety driver’’ in the

front seat, those vehicles were not truly self-driving. Instead of the standard controls, the prototypes would have buttons to begin and end the drive. Passengers would set a destination. The car would then make turns and react to other vehicles and pedestrians based on computer programs that predict what others might do, and data from sensors including radar and cameras that read in real time what other objects are actually doing. The route might be set by typing a destination into a map or using spoken commands, Chris Urmson, the leader of Google’s self-driv-

ing car team, told reporters Wednesday. The car will be powered by electricity and could go about 100 miles before charging. Its shape suggests a rounded-out Volkswagen Beetle — something that might move people around a corporate campus or congested downtown — with headlights and sensors arrayed to resemble a friendly face. Major automakers have steadily introduced technology that helps cars stay in their lanes and avoid accidents. However, all those vehicles come with a steering wheel and pedals — and the expectation that a driver will jump in should trouble arise. Several

This prototype compact car by Google has no steering wheel and is controlled by computer. more practical than somehow ensuring that people zoning out behind the wheel could take over at a moment’s notice. The first 100 prototypes will be built in the Detroit area with the help of firms that specialize in autos, Google said. It would not identify those firms or discuss the cost of each prototype. This summer, Google

plans to send test prototypes on closed courses, then later this year on public streets. Those test cars will have a wheel and pedals because under California law a test driver must be able to take immediate control. Though next year is the goal for the pilot project, Urmson said public access “won’t happen until we’re confident in the safety.’’

companies have said they expect by 2020 to market vehicles that can drive themselves under certain conditions. “Nothing is going to change overnight, but (Google’s announcement) is another sign of the drastic shifts in automotive technology, business practices and retailing we’re going to witness,’’ said Karl Brauer, a senior analyst at Kelley Blue Book’s KBB. com. A French company, Induct Technology, has produced a driverless shuttle, which in February drove people around a hospital campus in South Carolina. But in terms of a truly self-driving car from a major company, Google looks to be first. The tech titan began developing the prototype more than a year ago after it loaned some employees its retrofitted Lexuses and saw that some “would basically trust the technology more than it was ready to be trusted,’’ Urmson said.

Deer leaps from US overpass, lands on minivan ASSOCIATED PRESS

WEST DUNDEE, Ill. — A suburban Chicago woman is grateful her family is safe after a 200-pound (90-kilogram) deer leapt from an overpass, landing on their minivan as it travelled along a highway. Heidi Conner tells The (Arlington Heights)

Daily Herald that the doe came to rest in the middle of the family’s Chevy on Sunday. She and her four children were travelling about 70 mph (112 kph). She says the accident was bizarre, adding “nobody can believe this deer fell from the sky.’’ Illinois State Police

say witnesses reported seeing the deer jump from an overpass onto the vehicle below. Conner says the crash totalled the van and caused minor injuries, but says the way the deer landed on the vehicle was “a miracle in itself.’’ Police say the animal died.

HOROSCOPES by Jacqueline Bigar

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You’ll encounter various situations that will surprise you, but you can handle them. The effort of dealing with certain scenarios might not be worth it. Be willing to bypass what doesn’t work. You seem to sense what is going on with a family member. Tonight: Speak your mind. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You might want to bypass a controlling situation that seems to be getting you down. Your sensitivity will point to a new direction. If you head down that path, expect a strong reaction from someone you will have to deal with. Tonight: Invite a friend to join you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Weigh the pros and cons of responding in a certain way. You could be overworked and tired, but trust yourself to come through in the end. You might consider going back on a recent decision. Ask yourself whether this would be wise. Tonight: Make plans for the weekend.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Accept the fact that you need more privacy if you ever are to accomplish anything. A boss could be difficult. Relax with the moment, and make choices that work. You also might consider taking a day off just to recharge your batteries. Tonight: On center stage. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You’ll want to talk about how a situation seems to be developing. Your choices might be different because of an increased sensitivity. You could have difficulty telling someone that you changed your mind about a matter that is important to him or her. Tonight: Among the crowds. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) A situation is likely to become complex. Unexpected news could have a loved one or close partner feeling out of sorts. Share your perspective. Keep communication open and fluid. Someone might feel as if you don’t have much imagination. Tonight: Till the wee hours. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)


You could feel pressured by a developing situation. You might want to escape someone else’s demands. Detach and gain some distance from this person. Think through a decision more carefully. Consider your options. Tonight: Follow a friend’s lead. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) A close loved one or partner will appreciate hearing from you. Focus on getting a project completed. You might be a bundle of nerves because of a recent conversation. Your ideas seem quite unusual when discussing a situation, yet everyone will be all ears. Tonight: Be a duo. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You’ll wander into someone else’s turf; you will be able to tell by the response you receive. The nature of your reaction might surprise you. An apology could be necessary. Do not allow an honest mistake to get the best of you. Tonight: Return calls before deciding. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You might want to move in a different direction, if possible. In the next few weeks, a friend or

loved one will be playing devil’s advocate to anything you come up with. Understand that this person will be doing you a favor. Tonight: Clear up some work and finish running errands. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You might want to request some feedback from a creative person. This person is used to thinking outside the box, and can grasp what you are doing. Perhaps he or she will come up with an even better path. Take a stand, if need be. Tonight: Decide to start the weekend early. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Tension will build at home, to the point at which you will want to tiptoe around a certain person. You could be quite withdrawn until you gain a new perspective. Allow your penchant for off-the-wall ideas to emerge. You could be walking into new territory. Tonight: At home. BORN TODAY Former U.S. President John F. Kennedy (1917), comedian Bob Hope (1903), musician Melissa Etheridge (1961) ***

Hagar the Horrible

Baby Blues

Rhymes with Orange

By Dick Browne

By Kirkman and Scott

By Hillary B. Price

ANNIE’S MAILBOX by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I have a 24-year-old daughter by an ex-girlfriend. When “Tiffany” was a child, her mother made it very difficult for me to see her. At one point, her attorney sent me a letter saying I would not have to pay child support if I gave up all parental rights. I refused. When Tiffany was 9 years old, my ex moved to another state without telling me. I found her through her former neighbors. Consequently, I was only able to see Tiffany for a couple of weeks in the summer. Considering all of her mother’s obstructions, I think Tiffany and I have a good relationship. I attended her high school and college graduations, and she comes to visit me once a year. I call her every month to see how she’s doing. Tiffany is getting married next year and just told me that although she doesn’t want to hurt me, she wants her mother to walk her down the aisle. She said her Mom has always been there for her. Tiffany did suggest that I could wait at the front pew of the church and actually give her away to her fiance. I am very hurt by this, and I think Tiffany is being unfair to me. Do you have any suggestions? -- Heartbroken Dear Heartbroken: We know your ex made it difficult for you to be a more involved parent, and you did what you could, but regardless, your relationship is not as close as the one she has with Mom, and it serves no purpose to point fingers now. Tiffany wants Mom to walk her down the aisle, and she has asked you to have the honor of “giving her away.” This is actually a decent compromise and not the snub you seem to think. It is simply one moment of one day of the rest of your lives. If you want to continue your good relationship with Tiffany, please tell her you would be thrilled to wait at the front of the church and escort her to her fiance. Dear Annie: Before my wife and I were married eight years ago, sex was a frequent occurrence. She seemed to enjoy it. But on our honeymoon night, she said, “Let’s get this over with.” A couple of years later, when the frequency had significantly decreased, she told me that sex makes her feel “all yucky.” A few years after that, she said, “It always hurts.” When I suggested she talk to her physician, she sidestepped the issue and wouldn’t go. Now she tells me she “needs time to heal.” From what? Sex is nonexistent. She has headaches, is too tired or pretends to be asleep so often that although she is quite attractive, I no longer see her as an intimate partner. We tried counseling, but all she would talk about was the lamp I had installed at the wrong location. The psychologist indicated that we are not ready for meaningful sessions. Any suggestions? -- Bewildered Husband Dear Husband: Your wife has never enjoyed sex. Most women who experience painful intercourse would seek medical attention. We think her most honest assessment was when she said sex felt “yucky.” That would indicate a psychological hangup that she has no intention of working on. Please go back to your counselor -- on your own -- and discuss these issues. Decide how important sex is in relation to the other qualities your wife brings to the marriage, because she may never be more interested than she is right now. Dear Annie: I disagree with your advice to transfer photos to your computer and discard the originals. Computer programs change, and the photos are not always accessible. If photographs are kept on good paper (acid-free) in a cool, dry place in acid-free boxes or albums, they will last a long time. Ask any museum for help. -- Hoosier Historian Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Obituaries OBITUARY

Donald Peter Keen 1930 - 2014 It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Donald Peter Keen on April 27, 2014 at the age of 84, after a lengthy illness. Don lived in Saskatchewan for most of his childhood. After moving to B.C. ,he became a miner for 35 years, & often reminisced about working underground. After retirement, Don & wife Joyce moved to their Creston home. His personal renovations to his home & landscape were his dream & commitment for many years. His wood stove was a great comfort that gave him hours of content & peace. Don & Joyce enjoyed trips to Barbados and also enjoyed square dancing with friends. He loved to relax in his outside swing & appreciated all that nature had to offer-new grass, flowers (especially sweet peas), & birds. In the years prior to Dons' illness, he enjoyed long walks. Eventually he used his electric wheelchair & toured the neighborhood. It was his independence & he loved it! He lived his life with an enquiring mind that marveled all. Don took great pride in his personal achievements & showed a healthy sense of humor. His spirit will live on. Don is survived by his wife Joyce, three children, Patty (Chris) Doering, Gordon Keen, & Wade (Nicole) Burton; two step children:Debbie (Dennis) Wuthrich & Jennifer Burton; grandchildren, Jennifer Doering, Cindy (Darren) Hoffman, Jolene (Ken) Mellor, Justin (Sally) Doering ,Hunter, Tayman & Adam Wuthrich and six great grandchildren, Jasmine Piccioni, Mikayla Hoffman, Katie, Kelly & Deverne Brock & Lee Doering. A celebration of Dons' life will be held at a later date. Don is predeceased by his former wife, Ruth Keen & siblings, Clifford, Wilfred,Felix, Isabelle & Dorothy. Also great grandson Chase Mellor.

CALL: 426-5201 EXT. 202 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. 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. If friends so desire, Memorial tributes can be made directly to the BC Lung Association ( A funeral mass will be celebrated Saturday, May 31, 2014 at 12:00PM at Christ the Servant Catholic Church, 1100 - 14th Avenue South, Cranbrook, BC with a reception to follow.

1. Frequency: The online newspaper Web site user accesses the Internet almost twice as much as the general user. 2. Credibility: The credibility of the newspaper brand extends to the advertiser.

Targeted: If you want to focus on a particular backyard, advertising in an online newspaper is more personal, and more relevant because it is local. Newspapers also publish a plethora of niche sites (youth, women, movie fans, seniors, are illustrative) for virtually any demographic advertisers could possibly hope to reach.

4. Purchasing power: Sixty-two percent of newspaper Web site users purchase online compared with 49 percent of general users. Thirty-nine percent of online newspaper users have incomes higher than $75,000; 65 percent own their homes. Fifty percent of online newspaper users have spent more than $500 online in the last six months, and 63 percent of online newspaper users prefer to find out about new products through the Internet. 5. Content: After e-mail, the most preferred Web content is news, sports, financial information, entertainment news, and shopping â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in that order. Sixtytwo percent of Internet users visit online newspapers for local news, compared with 39 percent for the local TV station Web site and 23 percent for the local radio station site. Not even Yahoo! or AOLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Digital City can top this. 6. Retailers prefer newspaper sites: Sixty-five percent of retailers report that newspaper sites are efficient in assisting them in meeting marketing needs compared with other sites. 7. High profile: reports that, among top executives (CEO, CIO, CFO or owner/partner), Internet advertising ranked above over all other media measured for: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where I prefer to find our about new products,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where I prefer to receive information about companies,â&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where modern, up-to-date brands advertise.â&#x20AC;? At the same time, these early adopters of technology also skew younger than the traditional newspaper audience. Forty percent of online newspaper users are aged 18-35. 8. Reinforcement: Seventy-six percent of online newspaper users also read the newspaper in the past seven days, and repetition increases awareness. The Internet Advertising Bureau found that, by increasing the number of online banners from one to two per week, branding results on three key metrics increased 42 percent making online a great, inexpensive way to increase the branding lift of traditional campaigns. 9. Quality: Seventy-five percent of advertisers generally said newspaper Web sitesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; advertising was as good or better than other Internet sites. 10. Mix: A variety of recent studies have demonstrated the power of online, when included in a mix with traditional media, to elaborate the brand message. Newspaper print and online products combined have the highest penetration and most desirable audience of any other local medium. SOURCE: Newspaper Association of America

Poet Maya Angelou, author of ‘I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings,’ dies at age 86 Hillel Italie Associated Press

NEW YORK — Maya Angelou, a modern Renaissance woman who survived the harshest of childhoods to become a force on stage, screen, the printed page and the inaugural dais, has died. She was 86. Her death was confirmed in a statement issued by Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where she had served as a professor of American Studies since 1982. Tall and regal, with a deep, majestic voice, Angelou defied all probability and category, becoming one of the first black women to enjoy mainstream success as an author and thriving in virtually every artistic medium. The young single mother who per-

formed at strip clubs to earn a living later wrote and recited the most popular presidential inaugural poem in history. The childhood victim of rape wrote a million-selling memoir, befriended Malcolm X, Nelson Mandela and the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., and performed on stages around the world. An actress, singer and dancer in the 1950s and 1960s, she broke through as an author in 1970 with “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings,’’ which became standard (and occasionally censored) reading. She was a mentor to Oprah Winfrey, whom she befriended when Winfrey was still a local television reporter. She mastered several languages and published not just poetry, but ad-

American poet Maya Angelou has passed away. vice books, cookbooks and children’s stories. She wrote music, plays and screenplays, and received an Emmy nomination for her acting in “Roots.” Angelou was born Marguerite Johnson in

St. Louis and raised in Stamps, Ark., and San Francisco, moving back and forth between her parents and her grandmother. She was smart and fresh to the point of danger, packed off by her family to California

Anonymous “HiddenCash” scavenger hunt in San Francisco creating frenzy Terry Collins Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — Someone is dropping envelopes full of cash across San Francisco — and causing an international frenzy on social media. An anonymous man with the Twitter handle (at)HiddenCash has been hiding money throughout the city since Friday, leading scores on a scavenger hunt. His Twitter following exploded from a few hundred Friday to more than 80,000 and counting by midday Tuesday. One of his clues Tuesday told San Francisco followers to “find Mr. Franklin along the ‘crookedest street,’ (towards the bottom).’’ Translation: There was a $100 bill at the bottom of Lombard Street, the popular touristy thoroughfare that’s best known as the “Crookedest Street in The World.’’ Hidden Cash’s anonymous creator said his giveaways are a “social experiment for good.’’ He claims to make his money off San Francisco’s hot and lucrative real estate market and hopes that winners also “pay it forward.’’ Sergio Loza, 28, of San Francisco, said he saw a clue on Twitter

Sunday morning with the message “Early bird gets the worm.’’ He raced out and found an envelope with $50 inside taped to a parking meter in the city’s Mission District. Loza said he spent $30 on clothes for his

2-year-old niece’s birthday and gave her the remaining $20 as well. Adam Wenger, 27, said he won $200 by finding two envelopes about two hours apart Friday in the city’s South of Market District. One envelope read, “With

Love, from @HiddenCash. Leave $20 somewhere and pay it forward.’’ Wenger, a web producer for KGO-Radio, bought pizza for his co-workers on Tuesday and plans to pay a $100 parking ticket.

after sassing a white store clerk in Arkansas. Other times, she didn’t speak at all: At age 7, she was raped by her mother’s boyfriend and didn’t speak for years. She learned by reading, and listening. At age 9, she was writing poetry. By 17, she was a single mother. In her early 20s, she danced at a strip joint, ran a brothel, was married (to Enistasious Tosh Angelos, her first of three husbands) and then divorced. By her mid-20s, she was performing at the Purple Onion in San Francisco, where she shared billing with another future star,

Phyllis Diller. She lived for years in Egypt and Ghana, where she met Malcolm X and remained close to him until his assassination, in 1965. Three years later, she was helping King organize the Poor People’s March in Memphis, Tenn., where the civil rights leader was slain on Angelou’s 40th birthday. Angelou was little known outside the theatrical community until “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings,’’ which might not have happened if James Baldwin hadn’t persuaded Angelou, still grieving over King’s death, to attend a party

at Jules Feiffer’s house. Feiffer was so taken by Angelou that he mentioned her to Random House editor Bob Loomis, who persuaded her to write a book. Angelou appeared on several TV programs, notably the groundbreaking 1977 miniseries “Roots.’’ She was nominated for a Tony Award in 1973 for her appearance in the play “Look Away.’’ She won three Grammys for her spoken-word albums and in 2013 received an honorary National Book Award for her contributions to the literary community.
