Spring clean up is underway Water quality advisory in effect C AROLYN GR ANT Bulletin Editor

The snow is off the ground a little early this year and Kimberley residents are out raking and cleaning up after winter. The City of Kimberley will help out with your yard clean up by doing special pickups of garden and yard waste — up to the equivalent of one half ton load per household. The schedule is as follows. This week, until April 10, yard waste will be picked up on all garbage routes where regular garbage pick up is done on Wednesdays. Next week, April 14 to 17, those whose garbage is picked up




B Dec. 8 Feb. 6 Feb. 14 Feb. 28 Mar. 1 Mar. 12

Tuesdays will have yard waste removed; the week after, April 21 to 24 is for those with Friday garbage collection, and the following week, April 28 to May 1 is for Thursday collection. Yard waste will be picked up daily during the week, and should be put out at 7 a.m. each day. The yard waste should be clearly marked as such, visibly separated from regular garbage, but still in your regular pick up location. All refuse for spring clean up disposal must be in plastic bags or tagged or marked as yard waste. Small branches can be tied in bundles. Yard waste means waste from garden and lawns, including






grass, leaves, plants, sod and tree and hedge clippings. It does not mean branches larger than six inches, old appliances, used oil, vehicles or tires. The pick up offer is for residential customers only.


for all of Kimberley and Marysville Children, elderly, those with compromised immune systems should boil water or use safe alternative such as bottled water

With both Matthew and Mark Creeks running faster as the spring melt is underway, the first water quality advisory of the season now in effect. Effective 11 a.m. Tuesday, April 7th, 2015 the City of Kimberley is under a Water Quality Advisory — this affects all users including Kimberley, Marysville, Forest Crowne and the St. Mary Lake Road area. Water Quality Advisories are announced when the water quality is fair, and recent testing shows turbidity in water in both Mark and Matthew Creek is in that range. See WATER, page 4

Rugby Revival The early days of rugby in Kimberley in the 1960s recalled by Peter Moody By Peter Moody

The Daily Bulletin records rugby action in 1965.

Rugby Recollections The article by Anthony Dransfeld (Daily Bulletin Mar 27) noted that 2015 is the 50th anniversary of rugby in the East Kootenay. In fact, columnist Dave Humphrey has unearthed evidence that rugby was active here as much as 114 years ago. Humphrey researches and compiles “It happened this week in Cranbrook,” a column of historical tidbits which appears regularly in the Townsman and Bulletin. After reading the 50th anniversary claim, Dave searched the Cranbrook Museum and Archives’ collection of local newspapers, which dates back to 1898, for references to rugby. The earliest articles he found were published in 1901 by the Cranbrook Herald, which covered sporadic Cranbrook vs Nelson matches in a highly entertaining fashion, once

even in poetry. In April 1901, the Herald observed: “The last two seasons Nelson has had a strong team … [but] … the game of Rugby, to the majority here, is entirely new … ” Cranbrook had to enlist players from Moyie and Fort Steele to make up their numbers. Fast forward to the November 3, 1910, edition of the Cranbrook Herald which has a notice that the “Sullivan Mine Rugby football team challenges any team this side of Spokane for a game under American rules.” Marie Stang and Jim Ratcliffe of the Kimberley Heritage Museum have also researched references to rugby in their museum’s newspaper archive. They found a photo in The Dave Humphrey Daily Bulletin of NoThe beginning of a rugby article in the Cranbrook vember 10, 1965. Read on to learn more about Herald in April 1960. that match.

A rugby notice from 1901.

In 1961, a recent immigrant to Canada, I found myself in Kimberley teaching boys’ physical education at McKim Junior High School. My curriculum included gymnastics, track and field, and a variety of team sports. Soccer, the most popular and most played game in the world, was familiar to my students. But rugby, although played in Britain and other Commonwealth countries, was not. So, having learned to love the game in England, I introduced rugby to my PE classes, starting in grade 8 where we concentrated on basic skills, rules and teamwork. By grades 9 and 10 we were playing scrimmages, but for the next few years that was as far as the game went because there were no other rugby-playing schools in the East Kootenay to compete against. I should mention that back then, more than 50 years ago, school rugby was for boys only. Girls weren’t even playing soccer at that time. How times have changed – for the better. In 1965, after several years of practicing, we finally got to play “real” rugby. The spark was Pieter Sevensma, a Selkirk student who did his grade 11 at Brentwood College, a Vancouver Island boarding school that was similar to British boys’ private schools in that rugby was the major sport. Pieter began playing and found that he really enjoyed it. Returning to Kimberley in 1965 for grade 12, Pieter came to me at McKim and proposed that we get rugby going as a regular sport in town. It was a wonderful idea. I got my McKim students on board while Pieter spread the word up at Selkirk. Then we put an ad in the Bulletin inviting men to come and join our after-school practices.

“Afterwards it was back to the hall for showers, refreshments and camaraderie among winners and losers, all part of the romance of rugby. The game was verbally dissected, songs were sung, toasts were raised, and a return game was arranged to be played in Trail the following week.” Kimberley had miners, engineers, geologists and others who knew rugby from their native countries. In just a few weeks we found ourselves with 40-plus keen fellows who wanted to train and play. As coach, I handpicked four 9-a-side teams, comprising men and boys, and on Sunday, November 7, 1965, we played a round-robin tournament on McKim field. It was a gratifying success, played with great enthusiasm and sportsmanship, and enjoyed by quite a gathering of spectators. The Bulletin was there to record the historic event. Good news travels fast. A few days after the tournament, I heard from Craig Andrews of the Trail Colonials Rugby Club – they wanted to come to Kimberley to play us. I said we were very much a beginning team, but sure, we would welcome them. The following weekend Trail arrived for a game on Coronation field. McDougall Hall up on Townsite had the

nearest changing rooms so the teams kitted out there then trotted down the hill to Coronation. Kimberley lads gave it their all, but the Colonials were much more experienced and won the game. Afterwards it was back to the hall for showers, refreshments and camaraderie among winners and losers, all part of the romance of rugby. The game was verbally dissected, songs were sung, toasts were raised, and a return game was arranged to be played in Trail the following week. For the return match we ran into a couple of problems. First off, we were short of players so I enlisted two grade 8 lads, Brian McKenzie and Randy Marchi, who didn’t need much convincing to make up our side. Then, when we arrived for the game after a drive of 170 miles, we found the whole field under four inches of snow. No problem – the two teams spent the first half hour kicking snow off the touch lines and goal lines, then played with much gusto to keep warm. Kimberley never gave up, but once again Trail were the winners. As gracious victors, they followed the rugby ritual of forming a corridor and applauding while the losers ran between their ranks. Our players quickly caught on and performed the same honours for Trail. It wasn’t long after this that I left Kimberley for further education. My last season of rugby was played at Washington State University – the game was just too hard on my dodgy knees. I took up soccer again when I returned to Canada and played for a few decades. But I’ll say this: playing rugby gave me the most fun and satisfaction of any sport I’ve ever experienced.

McKim memories For the Bulletin

Hoppy Easter! Here we are, just fresh from Spring Break and now we are hopping into our Easter break. Awesome! April Fool’s day was filled with hi-jinx. Students were treated to 30 seconds of silence and teachers were treated to some great practical jokes…just ask Mr. McMahon. Here at McKim, we have an epic Dare program for our Grade 5s. Our local RCMP take one day out of their week to teach students about making responsible , legal choices. Constables answer the “tough” questions students need to ask to keep them safe. It goes on for nine days and at the end, there is a celebration we will be reporting on at the end of the process. We have a new SPCA Club at McKim. We at McKim believe in stop-

Learning about owl digestion is appetizing (not!). In Ping Pong this week, Brayden Hoy won the week with ten points. Brad Traverse came second with nine points. Great job, boys! Now that Easter is fi-

Water quality advisory in effect for all of Kimberley and Marysville From Page 1 The City and Interior Health recommend that children, the elderly, people with weakened immune systems and anyone seeking additional protection drink boiled water or a safe alternative. For these at-risk populations, water intended for drinking, washing fruits and vegetables, making juice or ice, or brushing teeth should be boiled for one minute. Boiled water should then be refrigerated in a clean, covered container. Residents could also choose to use bottled or distilled water, or water that has been filtered through a well-maintained treatment device.

Health risks increase as turbidity rises, particularly for at-risk population such as newborns, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems. Contaminants such as viruses, bacteria and parasites can attach themselves to the suspended particles in turbid water. These particles can then interfere with disinfection, limiting chlorine’s ability to remove or inactivate the contaminants. Current turbidity levels exceed the 1 NTU standard recommended in the Guidelines for Canadian Drinking Water Quality. Owners of public facilities must post Water Quality Adviso-

ries at all sinks or drinking water fountains accessible to the public (alternatively, public fountains and taps may be turned off ). As opportunities arise, they must also advise their clientele verbally of the Water Quality Advisory. The City of Kimberley is taking additional measures to reduce risk. Interior Health has been fully involved and the public will be notified when conditions change or water quality has improved. If you have any questions please contact the City of Kimberley at 250-4279660 or check turbidity levels at kimberley. ca

Opinion/Events Letters to the Editor

Space For The Arts

I have read with great interest the information in the paper regarding the discussion about the future of the old Fire Hall. Several years ago, I had the opportunity to visit this old building as part of an historical buildings walk. It is a beautiful building. I hope that you decide to keep it as city property. It would be a shame to lose it. Once buildings like this are gone, they are gone forever. The cost to rebuild is out of the question. The cost to restore is more within your grasp. I understand that the Cranbrook and District Arts Council is interested in using it. They have been without a permanent home for as long as I have lived in the area. The Fire Hall has the potential of becoming an excellent site for the arts. A couple of years ago I had the opportunity to visit an old barn near Lewiston, Idaho. They had converted the main level into small shops and studios and a large gallery area. Upstairs in the old loft area there were more workshop/studios and another open space where we attended a musical performance. There were perhaps 30 of us there. I was so impressed to see a heritage building restored like this. I am a painter. To have a facility where there are rooms to hold workshops, studio space available to rent and gallery space would be wonderful. In Kimberley at Centre 64, the gallery is already booked into

2017. That whole building is well utilized. We have a vibrant arts community — art, drama and music — in the East Kootenay. Space to develop skills, improve ourselves and/or sell our pottery, weaving, or paintings would be good for us and an asset to the overall character of Cranbrook. The Fire Hall has space! It is an historical building! Let us, the community, use it! Ilene Lowing Wycliffe

Old Fire Hall

Surely the civic-minded group now working so furiously to repurpose Cranbrook’s historic, but unused, old fire hall, deserves a chance? The City, to its credit, has already spent more than $100,000 to remove the asbestos in the building and prepare it for a new use. What better use could there be for this fine, old, heritage structure than to become an arts and culture facility that Cranbrook now sadly lacks. Look around the region: Kimberley has Centre 64, Invermere has Pynelogs, Nelson has the Touchstones Museum of Art and History, Castlegar has its famous Sculpture Walk. Cranbrook has … well you get the idea. Again to its credit, the City once had $500,000 in its five-year financial plan to get a needed project like this off the ground if the Cranbrook & District Arts Council

would come up with matching funds. Unfortunately the current City Council took the seed money out of the budget plan and the wind out of the project’s sails. Nevertheless, the CDAC, much to its credit, is continuing to work around the clock to raise enough money to keep the project alive. At a time when the Key City Theatre and Western Financial Place are bringing more great events and famous names to our city, it only makes sense to have a new and vibrant Arts Centre and Gallery to keep building our growing reputation. Cranbrook is often called “The Key City of the Kootenays.” Let’s be bold and work together to create a facility that shows we deserve that title. Gerry Warner Cranbrook

Join the Cigarette Waste Brigade To Reduce Tobacco Waste

Tamarack Centre working with community to reduce waste with spring ‘Butt Out’ Campaign Submit ted

Join Tamarack Centre (1500 Cranbrook Street North, Cranbrook) as they launch their Butt Out campaign to reduce harmful cigarette waste and create a healthier community. The Butt Out campaign aims to reduce tobacco related litter in an effort to keep the environment free of toxic waste with a three-step program. Cigarette waste is a leading polluter. Cigarettes leach chemicals that are poisonous to wildlife and contaminate our water sources, which is why Tamarack Centre is stepping up in hopes of fixing the

problem. The Butt Out campaign asks community members to help reduce waste by collecting cigarette butts from their homes, offices, restaurants and places of business. “It’s sad to see how wildlife can be attracted to foreign items like cigarette butts thinking it is food, especially when you consider the act of tossing the butt to the ground is 100 per cent avoidable,” said Ken Johnson Head of Habitat Asset Management Ducks Unlimited Canada. Tamarack Centre hopes to see a positive impact on the environment and the Cran-

brook community with the Butt Out campaign. Items that people should be on the lookout for are: extinguished cigarettes, cigarette filters, inner foil packaging, and outer plastic packaging. Additionally, the mall has organized a ‘butt pick-up day’ set for Monday, April 13, 2015 for community members who want to get involved. From 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. on April 13, Tamarack Centre administration staff will be on site to receive cigarette waste from the community. To help with collections, Tamarack Centre is offering the first 100 people who drop by with cigarette

waste a $5 Tim Horton’s card. “With the Butt Out campaign, we hope to see the Cranbrook community come together and support us in cleaning up our environment,” said Linda Birch, Manager of Tamarack Centre. “If everyone simply takes a few seconds out of their day to notice the litter and pick it up, it will make a huge difference.” For more information on how to get involved, call the Tamarack administration office at 250-426-2231, and to join the cigarette brigade by visiting:

B.C.’s labour market goes global


he labour situation in B.C. is showing increased signs of strain, even before a long-promised boom in heavy construction gets set to ramp up this summer. Jobs Minister Shirley Bond announced last week that B.C. is suspending its “provincial nomination” program for 90 days. This program allows the province to recommend people for federal immigration, based on skills in demand in B.C. The B.C. provincial nomination program saw its number of applications triple to 1,200 for the month of December, as the federal government cracked down on the temporary foreign worker program. Thousands of temporary foreign workers who have hit the four-year deadline are being sent home, with many of them turning to the provincial nomination track. Bond has been pleading with Ottawa to raise B.C.’s annual provincial nomination quota from 5,000 to 7,000 or more. The three-month pause is so her ministry can add staff and speed up processing time. Backlogged applicants will still be considered, and exemptions for health care workers and a northeast pilot program are being maintained. Even with the current slump in energy prices and before anticipated pipeline

and liquefied natural gas projects start, the labour shortage in the northeast is near crisis. The last time I was in Dawson Creek, radio ads were offering signing bonuses for qualified truck drivers. In Fort St. John, grocery and hardware retailers have come to depend on foreign workers to BC VIEWS keep going. While supposedly eduTom cated young people work Fletcher part-time and refuse to leave the comforts of southern city life, this is the reality up north, and it’s only going to get worse. This summer, work is scheduled to start on the Site C dam on the Peace River, the most costly construction project in B.C. history. And a union vs. nonunion battle reminiscent of the old Expo 86 labour wars is underway. The B.C. and Yukon Building Trades (BCYT) are demanding a project agreement that requires all workers on Site C to be paid their rates, and are warning of chaos on the huge project if they don’t get their way. BC Hydro CEO Jessica McDonald told me that’s not all they want. They are also seeking quotas for members of their unions on a project that will be a small city of 1,700 people at peak construction. BCYT executive director Tom Sigurd-


son says that while all sides acknowledge the need for foreign workers for Site C, he wants to control that too, working with their affiliated unions in the U.S. There will be non-union construction firms, some of them owned by aboriginal communities in the north. There will be contractors affiliated with the Christian Labour Association of Canada. The BCYT hopes to set wages and conditions for them all, and influence Ottawa’s temporary foreign worker program to boot. McDonald and Premier Christy Clark have politely told them to pound sand. Their formula would add millions in costs to the project, driving up BC Hydro rates even more than they are already rising. BC Hydro has already done dam upgrade projects using a “managed open site” model and it’s not inclined to return to the era of W.A.C. Bennett as Sigurdson demands. Sigurdson makes a valid point that when two concrete masons compare paycheques on the Site C project and one sees he’s making $5 an hour less, he won’t be happy. He will want the higher rate, and the BCYT is taking BC Hydro to court to ensure they can recruit new members on the site. It looks like a hot summer ahead.

Storm defenceman a Kootenay draft pick Cyclone Taylor Cup Champion pondering move to WHL, or path to NCAA

Taylor Rocc a Sports Editor

MISSION, B.C. — Andy Stevens has options and with the Campbell River Storm’s season carrying on towards the 2015 Keystone Cup — Western Canada’s Junior B championship — in Cold Lake, Alta., he isn’t prepared to make any decisions just yet. The 6-foot-2, 208-pound defenceman was a 2013 WHL Bantam Draft selection of the Kootenay Ice. With size and a smooth stride, it’s easy to see why the Ice scouting staff saw fit to use a fifthround pick (98th overall) on the now 17-year-old native of Campbell River. “If you didn’t know he was 16, you’d think he was a 20-year-old in our lineup,” said Lee Stone, Storm head coach and general manager. “He’s so strong. Our forwards consistently talk about how strong he is in the corners. He moves his feet. I think he’s going to be an exceptional player wherever he decides to play next year. “He’s a real smart kid, so they’ve kept the school option there. I think it will come down to where he’s got the best opportunity to develop. This year was good for him. Instead of being a six or seven [defenceman] on a higher-end team, he’s a number-one or -two on our club. It’s really served him well and I think he’s got pro hockey written all over him. I think he’s going to collect a cheque to play the game one day. That’s the talent he has.” Stone marvelled about Stevens’ drive and ability to think the game, two assets he believes will take his young

blueliner to success. Where that success comes is still to be determined. Having spent all his time in Junior B, with a cup of coffee at the Junior-A level, Stevens remains eligible to pursue the NCAA college hockey route and it’s an opportunity he’s weighing. The soft-spoken rearguard didn’t attend Kootenay Ice training camp following his draft year after breaking his wrist. He chose to play at home for the 201415 season and didn’t attend Kootenay Ice training camp once again, but with plenty of turnover coming to the Ice roster, next season might be the best chance for a young, efficient defenceman like Stevens to crack the lineup and make his mark in major junior — if he wants to go that route. “It’s definitely an option. They’re a great organization,” Stevens said. “It would be great to play for them. “Right after they drafted me, they gave me a call and we talked for a while. “It’s tough [to decide]. You’ve just got to talk to people that know a lot about it and have experience going both routes. You get their input about it. “I’m just focusing on the season [with the Storm] right now.” There’s no questioning Stevens can play the game and his presence has played a key part in the success of the Campbell River Storm this season. As a 16-year-old, he graduated from the Okanagan Hockey Academy to suit up for the Storm, posting two goals and 17 points in 40 regular-season games. In 11

Andy Stevens, pictured in action with the Campbell River Storm at the Cyclone Taylor Cup, is a Kootenay Ice draft pick Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League playoff games with the Storm, Stevens went on to post five assists and followed up with one assist in four games at the 2015 Cyclone Taylor Cup — B.C.’s provincial Junior B championship — in Mission, where his squad claimed its second B.C. title in franchise history with a 6-5 victory

over the Kimberley Dynamiters. On top of his time with the Storm, Stevens earned looks from the Powell River Kings of the BCHL (Junior A). Though he only saw eight games down the road from Campbell River, the youngster still earned himself a taste of Junior-A hockey and that isn’t something many

16-year-olds can lay claim to. “You’ve got to be faster, stronger,” Stevens said of the taste he had in Junior A. “You’ve got to be able to make plays a little bit faster. It was a great experience.” Should Stevens decide he wants to pursue the NCAA college hockey route, his most likely destination next season will be in a full-time

role with the Powell River Kings as a move to the Western Hockey League nixes his NCAA eligibility. A velvety-smooth stride is the first thing most people notice about Stevens’ game, but at 6-foot-2 and 208 pounds, they might be left wanting a little more grit and sandpaper. The physical side of the game is something Stone said they’ve been working on through this campaign. “He’s smart and he’s physical, but he’s not necessarily in your face,” Stone said. “At 6-foot-2, 205 [pounds], that’s something you’d probably like to see a little more of. But it hasn’t held him back in our league as a 16-year-old and I’d be surprised if it held him back in any other league, too.” For now, Stevens’ focus remains on finishing out the 2014-15 Junior B campaign — a season that has worn as long as it possibly can with the Storm headed to the Western Canadian Junior B championships April 16 to 19. “We have a great coaching staff and group of guys,” Stevens said. “We’re on the ice every day. We’re training hard and we’re a good team.” If Stevens’ and the Storm take to the ice in Cold Lake the way they did in Mission, they might find an opportunity to make history — no Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League team has hoisted the Keystone Cup since its inception in 1983. The Storm open the 2015 Keystone Cup in a date with the Saskatoon Quakers (Prairie Junior Hockey League champions) April 16 at 11:30 a.m. (MST).

COTR Avalanche welcome Aussie recruit S u b m i tt e d

College of the Rockies Men’s Avalanche will have some more help from Down Under next season. Avs Head Coach John Swanson is pleased to announce the signing of Patrik Toze from Queensland, Australia. Toze has garnered many volleyball accolades through the years. He was the under19 state most valuable player in 2014, named to the junior Australian team for the Asian Junior championships, and was the most valuable player for the State Schools Cup as

well as the Aggregate Interschool College Cup in 2013. Toze also holds the Aggregate Interschool College Cup national blocking, spiking and service aces records. He will be playing left-side for the Avalanche. “Patrik brings a passion and skill-set to our program that should easily transition to the collegiate level. His past accomplishments and willingness to improve in all facets of the game will make him a great addition to the team,” says Swanson. Toze is the third Australian

player recruited by the Avalanche over the past four years. Fellow Aussie, Curtis Stockton, has won several honours during his time with the Avs, including PACWEST 1st Team All-Star in 2013/14 and 2014/15, PACWEST Player of the Year for 2013/14 and CCAA All-Canadian in 2013/14. Toze is excited about his opportunity to play for the Avalanche and beginning his studies in the Kinesiology program. “This is the perfect next step for me and my volleyball aspirations. After talking with former head-coach Steve

Kamps and Curtis Stockton, I knew I would fit right in with the team and be challenged on the court,” he says. “Being able to use my sport as a means to obtain my education is also a dream come true. I couldn’t be happier coming into the next season and I eagerly anticipate travelling to Cranbrook for September.”

At right: Australia-native Patrik Toze looks forward to joining College of the Rockies’ Men’s Avalanche in September.

Rhymes with Orange

ANNIE’S MAILBOX by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I have a close acquaintance who is a fitness instructor at the health club where I often work out. Two years ago, I saw her at a local peace parade and got very worked up over something she wrote on the signs she was wearing. I became so crazed over it that I forgot myself and said some awful things about her. I also stopped going to her workout classes for a month and deleted her Facebook pages. Then I found out her husband had had a stroke the day of the parade. I realized how hideous my behavior had been. I returned to her workout class and intended to apologize profusely to her, but she wasn’t there that day. When she finally came back, I told her I’d been praying for her and her husband. Sometimes it seems she has forgiven me and everything is the same between us, but on other days, I’m not so sure. I apologized to her, in a general way, in a holiday greeting card, not mentioning the parade. I’ve lost countless hours of sleep crying from guilt, shame and regret. I’ve finally decided I have to do something. Please print this so she can see it and we can talk about it. -Distraught Dear Distraught: Printing this in the paper and hoping she sees it is a copout. You need to put your spine in place and talk to her directly, no matter how hard it is. A semi-apology in a holiday greeting card doesn’t count, and telling her you will pray for her is kind, but insufficient. Ask your friend whether she is available for coffee, or find some other time when neither of you is rushed and you can speak privately. Here’s what you say: “I know it’s been a while, but I need to tell you how sorry I am for my behavior at the parade and afterward. I don’t know what came over me. I value our friendship a great deal, and I am hoping you can forgive me.” Whatever happens after that, at least you will know you truly tried to make it right. Dear Annie: “Grandma” has every right to be concerned about her stepson’s nearly 3-year-old child who barely speaks. She should follow her instincts and strongly encourage that the girl be assessed by a speech therapist. The lack of expressive language could also be a sign of autism. While the suggestions to spend more time interacting with the child are great, professional intervention might be necessary. It is deplorable that the pediatrician has not caught this, as early intervention can change the trajectory of a child’s life. As a special education teacher over the past 10 years, I’ve seen the terrible repercussions caused by the lack of early intervention and the overworked school systems that regularly miss identifying these needs. -- Concerned Special Ed Teacher Dear Teacher: Several readers pointed out that the lack of speech could be a sign of autism. Others told us that their kids didn’t speak much at that age and turned out just fine. There’s no way for us to know what’s going on, but we absolutely concur that the child should be evaluated by a speech therapist to find out. Unfortunately, that is Dad’s call, and he seems disinclined to do anything. If “Grandma” can take her, wonderful. If not, talking and reading to this little girl could be a godsend.

South of Haida Gwaii likely location of future earthquake and tsunami G e ord o n Omand Canadian Press

VANCOUVER - Experts studying the second-biggest earthquake measured in Canadian history have zeroed in on the Pacific archipelago of Haida Gwaii as the likely source of a future large quake and tsunami. The earthquake off British Columbia’s coast in October 2012 relieved some of the region’s tectonic strain, but new research shows the shifting also increased pressure immediately south of the islands along the Queen Charlotte Fault. “What this has done in essence is raise the possibility of future thrust earthquakes and tsunamis along this part of the British Columbia margin,” said Thomas James, a researcher with the Geological Survey of Canada. James is one of the lead

authors of a compendium of studies analyzing various facets of the recent earthquake, most of which were published Monday in the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America. The Pacific and North American tectonic plates mostly slide along one another, but where those plates meet at certain points along the Queen Charlotte Fault they also push against each other, he explained. The release of that pushing pressure gave rise to the thrust earthquake of 2012. This type of earthquake is “unusual and to a certain degree unexpected” for the region, added James. “Any large earthquake can generate a tsunami but thrust earthquakes are especially effective.” The scientists’ findings were revealed shortly after the provincial government

released a consultation report that found B.C. is falling behind on earthquake preparedness. The absence of major seismic activity near densely populated areas has contributed to a culture of public apathy and resulted in government diverting resources away from emergency management agencies, concluded the report prepared by American consultant Henry Renteria. “The problem when you are living in earthquake country is that an earthquake is inevitable,” said Renteria. “It is going to happen — it’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when.” Renteria spoke critically of significant cutbacks and staffing shortages suffered by the province’s lead agencies responsible for earthquake and disaster management over the past 20 years,

adding that the impact “is beginning to show.” The report also highlighted the role of members of the public in contingency planning. The minister responsible for Emergency Management B.C., Suzanne Anton, was unavailable for comment but the ministry issued a news release regarding the report saying: “The Province will continue taking significant strides toward improving disaster preparedness in B.C.” While the Haida Gwaii earthquake of 2012 caused little structural damage and no serious injuries, in large part thanks to its remoteness, the region experienced tsunami run-up of up to 13 metres. Some of the land also reportedly shifted a full metre from its original location. “I was quite amazed at the emotional trauma,” said

seismologist Alison Bird, who travelled to the archipelago to drop off scientific equipment and interview residents. “Some people felt it but they weren’t really all that bothered by it. Other people were quiet shaken up, figuratively and literally.” Bird recalled being approached by a “burly, lumberjack fellow” close to tears who couldn’t stand the rumblings of the aftershocks, thousands of which could be felt in the weeks following the main event. He would sleep with the radio on so he couldn’t hear the noise, she said. While the timeline is uncertain, researchers say B.C. is due for a powerful megathrust earthquake — popularly described as the Big One — which is forecast to impact more populated regions of the province.

Psychic Advice

Troubled relationship with daughter Hi Wendy: I was wondering if you and your guides could answer a few questions for me? My daughter and I had a falling out last year and I was wondering if you see any type of reconciliation or communication this year from her? My husband is going in for an operation in June and I was wondering if the operation would be successful? Will my son meet a nice lady for a permanent relationship soon? Can your guides tell me how many guides and angels I have around me? n my work place I am surrounded by a lot of negativity. Can you tell me what I can do to help myself and create a better workspace for me? Will I be travelling this year to Europe for holidays? Feeling Overwhelmed Dear Feeling Overwhelmed: I asked my guides if you and your daughter would have a close relationship in the year 2015? The answer was no. I then asked my guides if you would have verbal contact with your daughter in 2015? The answer was yes. I then asked if there would be quarrels and trouble with your daughter in 2015? The answer was yes. It seems to us that you

have had problems with your daughter for the last four to five years. My guides feel that she continually manipulates you to make you look like you are the bad one. At this time if you want any type of relationship with your daughter you are going to have to start acting like one of those bouncy head dogs that they put in cars and agree to everything she wants and let her be in control. You also have the choice of standing up for yourself and be in control of your own life and let her live her life until she grows up. It all depends on what type of parent you want to be. Personally if you raise them and they are not dregs of society, they have good paying jobs, they can handle themselves emotionally without taking drugs or alcohol or prescription drugs, then you have done your job. You need to learn to live your life and learn to be a free spirit again. You remember, don’t you? It’s called having your own identity being your own person. If it’s any comfort you are not the only one with this problem, believe me. It’s comforting to know that this is not your fault — that this is happening with your daughter. If it were your fault then you would be one of the very few moms having this issue

ASK WENDY Wendy Evano with their child or children. Live your life and be happy you are a good mom. If she decides to get a life and become a mature adult and apologizes to you then perhaps you can start from there. However, we don’t feel this is going to happen with this child for quite some time. I mean really could you ever see you and me treating our moms the way these children are treating some of their parents now? It gives me the creeps to feel these emotions from these types of children. The operation your husband is to have in June will be successful. However, we see that he may have to have another operation in 2015. We don’t think it will be for the same problem but we are not sure on that. He also has to check with the anaesthesiologist because we feel he has allergies to certain drugs and this may complicate the operation he is to have in June. Your son will meet several ladies this year that wish to have a permanent relationship with him. He seems to

be as my guide states, “foot loose and fancy free.” He’s got the life of a cat licking the cream. He’s still young and he is in no hurry to form any real long-term relationships with a woman at this time. My guide is showing me an image of a woman that will be coming into his life in 2015 she is fair haired which can also mean a red haired woman. If he meets up with this woman tell him to “run like the wind” she will not be good for him. Then there is another woman with long brown hair, quite a quiet girl she seems nice. You have eight angels and three guides around you at this time. This means you are in need of more physical, emotional and spiritual healing than you are in need of guidance. For your work area always have a small fountain or a fish bowl on your desk. If that is too much work for you then wear a rose quartz crystal to shield yourself from negativity and to bring only kind loving people into your work area. Also surround yourself with a tube of pink light. See yourself in a tall cylinder of pink illumination like a lipstick tube. What I do is crawl into my lipstick tube and then I make sure the pink light is extended above my head and below my feet. When you do this

exercise with the pink light you are projecting strong, heavenly energy inward toward yourself. And nothing can get in this pink light shield but energies that come from divine love. Sometimes you will feel tired, or depressed or edgy when you get home from work and you need to do what we call a clearing to get rid of this energy. Try a plant or a few plants next to your bed. Plants are very helpful in ridding the body of toxins. Plants can absorb all that negative energy from our bodies that accumulate throughout our day and send it into what they call the ethers. So purchase a pothos or philodendron plant. Avoid plants that have prickly or pointy leaves or any pointy leaf variety of plants. The reason for this is their sword like leaves do not promote positive energy flow. We do see you doing some travelling in the year 2015 but we do not see you going to Europe.

Jeralean Talley

115-year-old US woman world’s oldest living person ASSOCIATED PRESS

INKSTER, Mich. - A 115-year-old Detroit-area woman now listed as the world’s oldest living person still makes plans for a fishing trip each year and credits God for her longevity. Jeralean Talley tops a list maintained by the Los Angeles-based Gerontology Research Group, which tracks the world’s longest-living people. Gertrude Weaver, a 116-yearold Arkansas woman who was the oldest documented person for a few days, died on Monday. Talley was born May 23, 1899. Asked for her key to longevity, the Detroit Free Press reports that she echoed previous answers on the topic. “It’s coming from above,” she told the newspaper. “That’s the best advice I can give you. It’s not in my hands or your hands.” Michael Kinloch, 56, a longtime family friend of Talley’s through their church, said Talley’s mental state is “is very sharp.” “It’s unfortunate that other people passed away, but this has certainly elevated her. She’s feeling no pain. She just can’t get around like she used to,” Kinloch said. Talley’s husband died in 1988 and five generations of her family have lived in the Detroit area. In 2013, her 114th birthday drew the attention of President Barack Obama, who said in a personal note that she’s “part of an extraordinary generation.” Kinloch said he’s looking forward to taking Talley, despite her advanced age, on their annual fishing trip. “We go to a trout pond in Dexter,” a community about 40 miles west of Detroit, Kinloch said. “She really likes that.”
