The Singletrack 6 — a six-day mountain bike race — passed through Cranbrook on Monday as racers paced through the third stage of the event. Opening in Fernie on July 23, the race features two stages in the mountain community, before heading over to Cranbrook, Kimberley and two more stages in Golden. Riders race in each stage by hitting local singletrack trails and are timed as they move on to other networks throughout the week. See more photos on Page 4.

Outdoor patio destroyed in hit and run Investigation ongoing after Kimberley RCMP locate suspect vehicle

FOR THE TOWNSMAN

Thanks to a tip from the public, police have located a suspect vehicle that damaged a restaurant patio on Howard Street, Kimberley early Tuesday morning. A report was received just before 5:00 am that a nearby resident heard a crash about 40 minutes ago and noted the damaged patio. Police attended and were able to follow a trail of oil through the streets of Kimberley but didn’t immediately locate the vehicle. If anyone has any information regarding the incident, please contact Kimberley RCMP.

Council goes to the dogs: Kennel club promotes show Cranbrook and District Kennel Club has been running an annual show for 43 years TRE VOR CR AWLEY

An outdoor patio outside the Heart Beet in Kimberley was destroyed in a hit and run early Tuesday morning.

Canines got the run of city council for a brief moment last week, as the Cranbrook and District Kennel Club gave an update on their upcoming annual show in August. Richard Lopaschuk, the club president, brought along three members and their canine companions as they hyped their 43rd annual AllBreed Championship Dog Show, which will be hosted at Moir Park with judges coming in all over Western Canada. Lopaschuk said he want-

ed to make council more aware of the club’s activities. “We use their facility on a regular basis, not only for the dog show, but we do our training in various parks around the city just to give people awareness of our organization and dog ownership,” Lopaschuk said. The show in August is 43 years in the running, however, things will be a little different this year, with the AllBreed Obedience Trials being held on Oct. 8-9, 2016, at the Ktunaxa Nation gym.

Transgender rights ‘must be seen’ TOM FLE TCHER Black Press

The B.C. government has passed amendments to its Human Rights Code to specify protection for “gender identity and gender expression,” a reversal by the B.C. Liberals after years of saying transgendered people are already protected against discrimination. Premier Christy Clark and Justice Minister Suzanne Anton staged a group photo with MLAs and transgender advocates before the legislation was introduced Monday. Vancouver-West End NDP MLA Spencer Chandra-Herbert, who has advocated the change for the past five years, said the government has finally relented. “The minister has to admit that what we were saying all along was correct, that in order to have your rights protected, you need to know you have rights,” Chandra-Herbert said. “You need to see your rights in the Human Rights Code.”

Anton said the changes don’t provide additional protection against unfair treatment when seeking a job or an apartment, but meetings with transgendered people convinced her to add gender expression to the list of prohibited grounds for discrimination. “They have been legally protected, but they have not felt protected,” Anton said. “So it’s extremely important for a community that is vulnerable that they know they’re protected, that they know government is behind them.” Two Liberal MLAs criticized the change, but did not vote against it. Chilliwack-Hope MLA Laurie Throness said “gender identity and expression” has been legally recognized as part of “sexual orientation” in the code, along with race, colour, ancestry, place of origin, political belief, religion, marital or family status, sex, age and criminal conviction unrelated to employment. “I would point out that this has not been

done for any other group,” Throness said. “One might specify certain races or religions or ethnicities. I can think of many disabilities, say of developmental delay, or perhaps impairment of sight or hearing or some other impairment, who must experience discrimination as well.” Throness said he does not accept that “gender is fluid,” but rather is “fixed” and a product of biology. He added that the change is “not about protection as much as it is about the programs that will flow from this special recognition.” Surrey-Panorama MLA Marvin Hunt cited rulings that found transgendered people are protected against sex discrimination. “Transgender people are clearly included in the B.C. Human Rights Code,” Hunt said. “Now, the Jews aren’t mentioned in the code, but they are also covered.” NDP MLA Selina Robinson said Throness’ comments “sounded like he felt the government got bullied by the LGBTQ community.” The Vancouver Pride Society refused to allow Premier Christy Clark to walk in their parade last year unless she supported Chandra-Herbert’s amendment.

The Week on the Beat

The Cranbrook Food Bank needs your help.

Cranbrook RCMP recieve 158 calls for service from July 18-25

The Cranbrook RCMP responded to 158 calls for service last week. Impaired driving, motor vehicle collisions and thefts were some of higher volume calls. RCMP responded to four impaired drivers; two for alcohol and two for marijuana. Four collisions were reported, two of which involved alcohol. One driver was given an immediate roadside prohibition for 90 days, and the other alcohol-involved collision, the driver was charged for refusing to provide a breath sample. Other charges were given to drivers in two other collisions. One hit-and-run incident was reported and a suspect was located and registered owner of the vehicle charged with a traffic offence.

RCMP received five assault complaints; one was domestic in nature while one was a dispute between neighbours where one person was arrested and drive marijuana plants seized. Two break and enters were reported, one was unfounded, while the other was solved with property recovered and four

youths identified as subjects. Charges are forthcoming. Police received 13 reports of thefts. Two were shoplifting, one was from a construction yard, three from vehicles. A truck was stolen after the owner left his keys in the truck unlocked, however, the vehicle was recovered the same day in town. Other thefts included items ranging from garden rakes empty cans and bottles, purses, cell phone, validation tag for a vehicle, bicycles and jerry cans. Two cases of property damage to a vehicle and a sign post were reported to RCMP. Police also made three drug seizures, all of which was marijuana. Thirteen Mental Health calls were received and two were apprehended.

Assault leads to break in and firearms offences, suspect arrested FOR THE TOWNSMAN

Cranbrook RCMP are currently investigating a 38 year old Cranbrook resident for several offences including Assault, Break and Enter and Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose. In the early morning hours of July 22nd, Cranbrook RCMP and Police Dog Service were called to a residence for a report of an assault. A 38 year old male had struck a female in the head, causing her inju-

ries. The male then fled on foot. Approximately one hour later, police were called to the Canadian Tire Store for an alarm. Entry had been gained to the business and it was determined a firearm and ammunition were stolen. Information from the public led the RCMP to a residence where the male was located. The male, who is currently out on parole, was arrested without incident and is facing numerous

charges. A firearm was located at that residence. Police are still investigating, but want to assure the public that the male is in custody and the firearm believed to be stolen from Canadian Tire is now accounted for. LOST WALLET Cranbrook RCMP are requesting the assistance of the public in locating or advising Denton Scott Haynes of Tucson, Arizona, to con-

tact Cranbrook RCMP in regards to his wallet being found and turned into our office. Cranbrook RCMP would like to return his wallet and identification to him. If you know of his whereabouts or a contact number for him Cranbrook RCMP would appreciate your call as police would like to return Mr. Haynes property to him. To contact the RCMP regarding the lost wallet, please call 250-4893471.

SINGLETRACK 6

Riders hit the trails for Singletrack 6 FOR THE TOWNSMAN

New to the Singletrack 6, stage three was hosted today in the City of Cranbrook. After waking up in Fernie, riders were transported approximately one hour to the city of Cranbrook. Surrounded by majestic peaks on all sides, Cranbrook is emerging as the newest hot spot in the region for killer mountain biking, after years of relative anonymity. The active local cycling community agreed to let a few of their coveted trail secrets out of the bag for today’s stage. The stage consists of two loops completely

unique loops. Starting with the inner loop and rolling out from the Community College, the course climbed gently on road, giving riders a proper warm-up. Off of the tarmac and onto Loggers Lane gave riders their first singletrack climb of the day. Continuing through Community Forest, smooth singletrack gave way to some tighter climbs and descents and the high point of the day. The pattern of short climbs followed by rewarding descents was the norm and took riders to checkpoint 1 at Kettle Lake.

Upon tackling the second major climb of the day, riders encountered steeper and more technical riding on “Hobgoblin.” After some high-speed, sometimes grassy descents on Migor, the final climb on Bonehead was up. From this point, racers only had a couple short climbs followed by fast and fun descents to finish out the day. The final high speed descent on Roller Coaster left riders pretty pumped on the day as they rolled back into the finish at College of the Rockies.

Kennel club show coming up in August CONTINUED from page 1 “Normally we hold the performance event at the same time, but this year, we decided to have our obedience rally trial in the second weekend of October, rather than with the dog show,” said Lopaschuk. “Just to see how it would work out and possibly get more people participating in performance at our event.” Spectators at the August and October shows can expect seeing canines of all breeds strutting their stuff. “A lot of dogs, for sure,” said Lopaschuk, “and they also can get a perspective of if they are dog owners or need any information on the species of dogs that are available, we can usually provide them with information on certain breeds and where they can purchase them and/ or they can just come and watch.” There have been some ups and downs with the club since it started it’s annual run of

shows 43 years ago, but Lopaschuk credits the club members for seeing it run as long as it has. “Mostly because of the participation of people involved in the sport, and it is a sport, and the competition involved — it’s always something that is competitive always attracts people to continue, win or lose, usually,” Lopaschuk said. And the community itself. It’s a wonderful venue, a wonderful place to come and the numbers of participants have dropped off over the last few years. We used to get 500 dogs here when we originally started, but there are a lot more dog shows and events taking place across Western Canada, so consequently, we don’t get as many as they would in Calgary or Edmonton or those places, but they still come here to participate in the community. “…Personally, I’ve been in the sport for 50 years in various aspects.

Steelworkers Local 1-405 and the City of Kimberley are returning to the bargaining table on Wednesday, July 27 for one day of negotiations with mediator Grant MacArthur from the Labour Relations Board. Both sides say efforts will be made to finalize the essential services levels, but that the potential is there to also discuss the actual agreement and perhaps come to a resolution. The City has asked for essential services designation for workers in water treatment, RCMP clerical staff, and snow plowing staff among others. The two

sides have not been able to agree on numbers so the City requested a return to mediation and the union agreed. “Both the USW and the City are attempting to reach an Essential Services agreement in the event of a work stoppage and have not been able to agree on the levels needed,” said lead negotiator Jeff Bromley in a press release. “The City asked that the mediator get back involved to issue an order on the Essential Service levels and at the same time, to have the mediator come back to take an attempt at a mediated settlement to reach a collective agreement.

Solar Impulse nears journey’s end

A

s I write this, Solar Impulse is already in the air on the last 48-hour leg of its remarkable journey: the first roundthe world flight by an aircraft that uses no fuel except sunlight. By the time you read it, pilot Bertrand Piccard will probably have landed in Abu Dhabi, to global acclaim. And you can’t help wondering: is this the future of flight? There are about 100,000 commercial flights per day, and the aviation industry burns just under 300 billion litres of fuel each year. Commercial aircraft are responsible for about 2 percent of the human race’s carbon dioxide emissions. So electric airplanes that burn no fossil fuel would be very helpful, and Bertrand Piccard thinks that this is indeed the future. “I make the bet that in 10 years we will have electric aeroplanes flying with 50 passengers for short- to medium-haul flights,” he said. “You can fly with no pollution and no noise, and land in urban airports, making no disturbance for the neighbours....And maybe sometime people will say this all started with a crazy idea of flying around the world in a solar aeroplane, and the outcome was useful for everyone.” But Solar Impulse, with the wing-span of a jumbo jet, can carry just one person. Photoelectric cells on the wings power it during the day, and recharge the batteries that take it through the night (barely)– but its average speed is only 75 km/hr, and it took 17 flights and fifteen months to travel around the world, so we are still a long way from the Promised Land. You can’t just scale Solar Impulse up and get an electric-powered commercial aircraft that carries 50 people, let alone the 500 passengers that they can jam into a

long-haul 747 or A380. The basic problem is coming up with light-weight, high-capacity “traction” batteries – ones designed to provide the main power for large vehicles for a period of hours – and progress on this front has been very slow. Traction batteries are still nowhere near the weight-to-power ratio that would be needed for an airliner, and there are no signs of an imminent breakthrough. Solar Impulse may equal a Boeing 747 in size, but it weighs only 2 tonnes. (The empty weight of a 747 is 129 tonnes.) So we should not expect electric airliners any time soon, and people are not going to stop flying voluntarily. Is there any hope out there? Maybe so. Aviation fuel has always been derived from petroleum because other energy source Gwynne no provides as much power for the same weight. (There Dyer are no coal-fired aircraft.) But what the engines need is just a high-octane fuel; they don’t care where it comes from. There are two other places it might come from. One way is by growing oil-rich algae in giant vats (salt water or waste-water will do), and crushing it to separate the oil, which can then be refined in the usual way to extract an octane fuel. Exxon Mobil and Synthetic Genomics have spent $100 million on this project since 2009, but they still have much work to do in creating the fast-growing, high-oil-content algae that would make it commercially viable. The other way is by taking carbon-dioxide directly out of the air, and using a catalyst to combine it with hydrogen to create an octane fuel. Several teams have working prototypes of machines that will extract the carbon dioxide from the air at a modest cost in energy, and the hydrogen can be

obtained just by splitting water molecules. In both cases burning the fuel will, of course, produce carbon dioxide, but it will be precisely the same carbon dioxide that was originally taken from the air to combine with hydrogen or grow the algae – so the process as a whole is carbon-neutral. Since this approach would not require replacing or even modifying the entire 25,000-strong fleet of commercial aircraft, it is certainly more promising for the short and medium term. There is another potential environmental problem linked to fuel-burning aircraft, and that is the “contrails” (condensation trails) they often leave behind them. The contrails are formed by water vapour from the engine exhaust that freezes when the humidity is high and the air temperature is low, usually in the upper troposphere. They can last a long time and spread out until they turn into cirrus clouds covering large parts of the sky. Such clouds let most sunlight pass through inbound, but reflect heat back to the surface in the night-time. How big an impact contrails have on global warming is still not settled, but it may be as big as the effect of carbon dioxide from aviation fuel. Conventional aircraft can only avoid contrails by flying lower, which means higher fuel consumption and much more turbulence – but electric aircraft would not leave contrails at any altitude. So congratulations to Bertrand Piccard and Solar Impulse’s other pilot, Andre Borschberg. Maybe we will have electric airliners one of these days, if only somebody can come up with the right battery – but in the meantime we should be working hard on making carbon-neutral fuel.

Bandits end season on winning note American Legion Baseball season comes to conclusion in Calgary this past weekend

TAYLOR ROCC A Sports Editor

The 2016 American Legion Baseball season came to an end on a winning note for the Cranbrook Bandits this past Sunday in Calgary. Playing one final tournament, the Bandits knocked off the Calgary Redbirds in a backand-forth 10-9 thriller to defeat the hosts in the final game of their own tourney and claimed third place. The victory brought the Bandits home with a record of 22-21-1 — the best mark the team has put up in the 10 years since head coach Paul Mrazek took hold of the reins. “I think there was a lot of success, but as a coach, I’m always looking for more,” Mrazek said Tuesday afternoon. “I think we can improve upon it again next year. But we had lots of success with players developing. Rookies really did well by the end of the year and were fitting in playing this level of baseball. They did a great job. “Overall, as a team, we had more wins than ever… We played just over .500 baseball and that’s a first in 10 years.” The final game featured some special moments, particularly for veteran left-handed pitcher Tyler Thorn, who was dressed for his final contest as a Bandit. After the Bandits took a 10-9 lead in the sixth inning, Thorn took to the mound with a one-run lead and a runner aboard on first base in the seventh inning. In quick and efficient Tyler Thorn fashion, the southpaw clipped the Redbirds wings for three consecutive outs, earning the save and guiding his team to one final win. The savvy Cranbrook kid pitched into a line-

out at second base, which turned to a double play to kick things off, before getting the next at-bat to groundout back to the mound. Cooly and casually, Thorn scooped up the baseball and trotted to first base, tagging the bag for the final out of his career and the Bandits’ 2016 season. “That was a pretty cool finish,” Mrazek said. “I think that was a highlight for a lot of the guys.” The Sunday triumph provided a measure of revenge for the Bandits, who fell 10-3 to those same Redbirds in the opening game of the tourney early Saturday afternoon. Saturday evening saw the Bandits drop a tough one to the talented Regina Prospects by a 7-2 margin. With one final round-robin game remaining, the Bandits were thumped handily by NW Premier Baseball out of Post Falls, Idaho, setting up for the rematch against the Redbirds. “Regina and Post Falls were the best teams we’ve played this season,” Mrazek said. “It was a good experience for the players. It was the best pitching they had faced. It was good for them to see and focus on the innings that we played the game right and played it well, [then] learn from where we let it get away from us. “We played with those teams for a whole bunch of innings. If we continue to do that the games will be a lot tighter and that’s where we want to go. We want to improve and get to that next level.” With the 2016 American Legion Baseball season in the books, this past weekend proved the last time this particular group of Bandits

The end of a campaign always serves as a time for reflection and while this Bandits squad was worthy of celebration after it put forth the best win total in Mrazek’s decade in the dugout, the coach admittedly said he always wants more and this team could have been even better than it was. “I still think we need to tighten up defensively, primarily in the infield is where we’ve got

to focus next year,” Mrazek said. “We’ve got a very strong outfield, even the rookies were playing the outfield well.

“This group didn’t give up... We really did battle hard in a lot of games. When we were down, we stayed in there and won. We’re getting comfortable in those tighter situations.” Paul Mrazek Bandits Head Coach We’ve got to tighten up our infield and progress there. “That will help us get to the next level and when I say the next level, I mean being a bit more competitive with

the bigger centres, the bigger cities. But talking with some of the players, it was a good season. Everyone improved and I think we keep getting better with understanding the game and knowing what’s important. But there’s still room to improve offensively, defensively, and we’ve got to focus on staying in the game and knowing the situations a bit more.” If there’s one characteristic Mrazek could single out about his 2016 Bandits, it’s that the team never quit. On many occasions, the club found itself down and seemingly out, only to dig in and find ways to scrape out runs, make comebacks and steal victories from opponents. Sunday’s final victory over the Redbirds —

and back-and-forth affair from start to finish — is a perfect example of the team that never gave up, even when it fell behind on the scoreboard. “This group didn’t give up,” Mrazek said. “We won a lot of games that we were behind in and came back in. There were a lot of games where the other team got four or five runs in the first inning and we never gave up. “We really did battle hard in a lot of games. When we were down, we stayed in there and won. We’re getting comfortable in those tighter situations.” Outside of battling, setting a new mark of wins in a season and claiming the first season of .500-plus baseball in Mrazek’s history with the program, the fiery

shot-caller expressed how important it was for the team to finally have its own bus — complete with team logos and colours — this season. With the amount of time spent on the road — some trips as long as 10 hours on the highway — Mrazek said having a bus for the team to call its own was long overdue and a great benefit to the boys as they became familiar with one another and gelled over the course of the season. While the scheduled has been exhausted for the Bandits, the only thing that remains is to hand out team hardware. Mrazek said he will take a week or two to get everything organized before the team rallies for one final celebration gathering prior to the end of summer.

Kimberley product Matt Wilkins (#18) battles in front of the net during his two-game amateur tryout with the ECHL’s Adirondack Thunder this past season. TAYLOR ROCC A Sports Editor

Kimberley product Matt Wilkins has graduated from the college ranks and landed his first professional hockey contract. Tuesday morning, the Reading Royals of the ECHL announced the signing of Wilkins, 25, to a one-year ECHL contract. The 2015-16 season marked the final year of Wilkins’ NCAA Div. 1 career with Union College. Over 146 games, the 5-foot-11, 193-pound forward tallied 29 goals and 85 points. The 2012-13 season saw Wilkins and Union win the ECAC championship, before claiming

both the ECAC title and NCAA championship in 2013-14. Following the 201516 NCAA season, Wilkins signed an amateur tryout (ATO) with the Adirondack Thunder of the ECHL, suiting up for two games. Wilkins played 91 games with the KIJHL’s Kimberley Dynamiters from 2007-08 through 200809, amassing 40 goals, 44 assists and 84 points before moving on to the Junior A ranks. In 37 games with the BCHL’s Trail Smokeaters (2009-10), Wilkins regis-

tered 25 points before being traded to the Brooks Bandits of the AJHL. With Brooks, Wilkins went on to light up the AJHL, collecting 64 goals and 176 points over a 120game career with the Bandits. During the 2011-12 campaign, Wilkins’ 99 points in 60 games were enough to lead the entire AJHL in scoring. His 65 assists that year stand as a Brooks Bandits single-season record, while his 99 points remain tied with Jeff Marler (2000-01) for

a single-season record. The Reading Royals play out of the ECHL’s East Division and serve as an affiliate for both the Lehigh Valley Phantoms (American Hockey League) and Philadelphia Flyers (NHL). The 2015-16 season saw the Royals stack up a record of 36-26-6-4, good enough for third in the ECHL East. The Royals are set to open the 2016-17 ECHL season on Oct. 15 when they host the Elmira Jackals. The Royals play out of the Santander Arena in Reading, Pa., a city of nearly 88,000 located approximately 102 kilometres northwest of Philadelphia.

Blue Jays acquire OF Upton from Padres GREGORY STRONG Canadian Press

TORONTO - The Toronto Blue Jays added outfield depth for the stretch drive Tuesday by acquiring Melvin Upton Jr. from the San Diego Padres in exchange for pitching prospect Hansel Rodriguez. Upton is batting .256 this season with 16 home runs, 45 RBIs and 20 stolen bases. He sat out San Diego’s past two games, including Monday’s 4-2 loss to Toronto at Rogers Centre. The Blue Jays, who

also received cash from San Diego, confirmed the deal in a release. Upton, 31, had a .304 on-base percentage and a .439 slugging percentage in 92 games for San Diego. He was in his second season with the Padres. He joins an outfield mix in Toronto that includes regular starters Jose Bautista, Kevin Pillar and Michael Saunders. Ezequiel Carrera has served as the primary backup outfielder. Bautista and Saunders are in the final year

of their respective contracts. Upton, meanwhile, is in the fourth year of a US$75.25-million, five-year deal he signed with the Atlanta Braves before 2013. Upton will earn $16.45 million next season. He was selected by Tampa Bay with the second overall pick in the 2002 draft and made his big-league debut with the Rays in 2004. “Im excited to join my new @BlueJays teammates today and can’t wait to help continue the winning tradition that’s

been built here. #letsgo,” Upton said on Twitter. Toronto will make a move to open a roster spot before Tuesday’s game. The Blue Jays are in the thick of the playoff race in the American League East. The defending division champions entered play Tuesday with a 56-44 record, three games behind the 58-40 Baltimore Orioles. The Boston Red Sox are 2.5 games behind the Orioles at 55-42. The Red Sox and Blue Jays hold the two AL wild-cards.

IT HAPPENED THIS WEEK

Cranbrook Townsman / Kimberley Bulletin

It Happened This Week in Cranbrook July 24 ­­— 30 DAVE HUMPHREY

Items compiled from the archived newspapers held at the Cranbrook History Centre Archives 1905 DROWNED … J. H. Baxter, clerk in Dr. S. K. Harvie’s drug store, was drowned last evening while bathing in Moyie lake. A party made up of several of the towns people were having an outing on the west side of the lake. Baxter went across after supper and joined them. All went in bathing, and were enjoying the sport thoroughly. Baxter was seen to sink and George and Roy Clothier, two expert swimmers, commenced diving and soon had him out and on shore. The water was only about seven feet deep where he went down. Every effort to resuscitate him proved useless. The supposition is that his heart failed him, for he was not in the water more than five minutes. Baxter was 23 years of age, and was a man of excellent habits. He had been in Moyie about six months. His parents and other relatives live in Drumbo, Ont. The remains were taken to Cranbrook, and placed in care of Undertaker Beattie, who forwarded them to Drumbo Tuesday. COMING UP … Labor Day celebrations in Cranbrook the past two years have been a great success, but if one can judge by the preliminary arrangements for this year, the celebration on the fourth of September will eclipse all former efforts. The committee is a strong one and has been doing some hard work, meeting often to arrange a program and the prize list. There will be about $1,200 in prizes, and the list of events is of a nature that will appeal to the sporting proclivities of every individual. An endeavor has been made to meet the demands of all as far as

possible and the program as prepared is pretty good evidence that the committee have succeeded. Among the leading events provided for are the hose races, and in all probability Moyie, Fernie, Marysville and Cranbrook will compete. There will be two races, a wet test and a hub and hub race, and these events alone will give any person the worth of their money. There will be a drilling contest for the miners of East Kootenay that will attract all kinds of attention and cause no little excitement. Among the pleasing features will be the lumbermen’s contests, and these always hold the attention of the crowd as long as they last. Then there will be horse races, Indian pony races, where the daughters of the forest will ride their steeds in the latest fashion, Caledonian sports of all kinds, races for the children, and the big tug-of-war when the brawn of the towns will struggle for victory. It is a program that will appeal to all and will give the visitors one of the best days they ever enjoyed in their lives. Arrangements are being made for special trains to run from Ryan or Spokane Junction, Kimberley and Fernie, so that the people of the entire district will have an opportunity to come to Cranbrook on that day and have a good time. All that is needed is good weather, the committee have done the rest, and it will be up to the people. No man can work all of the time. He must have some recreation, and Labor Day at Cranbrook is going to give him the very chance he is looking for. So get everything in shape, and prepare to come to the capital of the banana belt on that day. A GREAT EAGLE ... Word has been received that a wonderful bald-headed eagle is in captivity at the Falls View hotel, at Marysville. It was captured, so it is said, by Al. Pratt, after a fierce struggle. It was seen raising near the town with a large calf in its talons, and a shot from a rifle broke one of its immense

wings and brought it to earth. The calf escaped with only a few ugly cuts from the bird’s talons. It was impossible to approach the bird, as in its wounded state it seemed determined to have revenge upon any one who came near. Finally Mr. Pratt climbed a nearby tree, and having had years of experience in Colorado with the lariat, he succeeded in throwing the noose around the angry bird’s neck and choked it down until several men got its legs and wings tied. The bird measured nine feet, nine inches from tip to tip, its talons were nine inches long, and its bill was longer than the average bar bill. A cage with bars of railroad iron is to be built to keep the bird in captivity, but it will prove a dangerous job to handle it. GET ON BOARD … It is extremely gratifying to the Herald to see a number of people in Cranbrook who violently condemned its course on the question of incorporation now fall in line and repeat the arguments made by the Herald in favor of incorporation for the past two years. It is pleasing to have your opponents give praise in such a manner. NELSON ENTWISTE … Boot and Shoe Maker Hanson Avenue Opposite J. McArthur’s Secondhand Store. If you have feet that store shoes won’t fit nice and easy, give me a trial. I have had a large and varied experience in England and Canada. Or if you have a pair of old shoes that are nice and easy, but are getting the worst for wear, don’t throw them away — bring them to me and I will fix them for you, so that you can be comfortable this warm weather. Repairing Neatly and Promptly Done. THE LEGION OF FRONTIERSMEN ... This is an organization that is aimed to extend over all of the English possessions, and to include frontiersmen of every type. It is being organized for sport but will be prepared for war. Mr. Roger Peacock, the novelist and frontiersman,

planned the Legion, and the Earl of Lonsdale founded it. Southeast Kootenay should prove a rich field, for securing members for such an organization. C. C. Whebell, of Cranbrook, is interesting himself in the matter, and anyone applying to him in person or by letter, will receive all the information they desire. A. Watts, of Wattsburg, is also interested, and has had considerable correspondence with parties in the Old Country relative to the best mode to proceed in Western Canada to push along the organization. He will also be glad to assist in the matter. The idea is a good one, and should meet with the approval of the people. There are at least 200 or 300 in this district who would be eligible, and no time should be lost in getting the movement started right here in Cranbrook. NEW RAILWAYS NEAR CRANBROOK ... With all the talking of the construction of the new railways in the province, the struggle for subsidies, very little is known of the two roads being built right here at Cranbrook without bonus and without legislative action. The Staples lumber company has completed grading a road about eight miles long, extending from the North Star branch across the prairie to Cherry creek. The work will cost quite a bunch of money but has been pushed forward without anything being said by anyone. The other road is one that will connect the Robinson-McKenzie mill with the Crow, and work is also progressing on that. The people around Cranbrook are peculiar, inasmuch as they go ahead with enterprises of this character without asking government favors. HOT AND WINDY … This section of the country has been in it with the rest of the world for hot weather the past week. In the east the heat has been so severe that the authorities of New York city have allowed the people in the tenement districts to sleep on the grass in the parks, and in consequence thousands have crowded the open places every night. Quite a number, exhausted by heat and loss of sleep, while sitting in the windows in the high buildings met death by falling to the pavement below. Although the weather has been unusually hot in this district the past week, yet every night has been cool and that has enabled the people to get a good rest and recuperate. For the past few days the streets have been well sprinkled every hour in the business portion of the town and those having water and hose at private residences have kept the buildings and grounds cooled in the same manner. But here there is no such heat that causes prostrations like they have in the east, and it lasts only a few days. Saturday night for about ten or fifteen minutes one might have thought that they lived down in Texas or Kansas, as Cranbrook was visited with what is looked upon in this country as a hurricane, although in the country where they have severe windstorms, that of Saturday night would be only a gentle zephyr. What added to the terrifying conditions here was the fact that the transformer on the electric light line on the main street burned out, and the plant had to be shut down, placing the whole town in total darkness just when the wind was at its highest. A few signs were knocked down, a few windows broken but there was no serious damage, but some inconvenience due to the necessity of hustling for lights. OPEN AIR PREACHING … For the past month the local ministers have united in holding a brief open air service on Baker Street in the evenings close to the regular services in the churches. These meetings are well attended as a rule and many stop to listen who are never seen in church.

NEWS CBC, police and government warn drivers to stay alert on the roads this long weekend July 26, 2016

ADDITIONAL STATISTICS**: â&#x20AC;˘ Over the B.C. Day long weekend, five people are killed and 600 injured in 2,400 crashes throughout the province. As we head into B.C. Day long weekend, ICBC, the B.C. government and police are asking all drivers who will be setting off on a road trip to look out for the key warnings signs of fatigue â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you don't recall driving the last few kilometres, you don't notice a vehicle until it suddenly passes you or your driving speed is creeping up or down. Every year, 16 people are killed in crashes involving driver fatigue in B.C.* Warm summer weather and long drives can be a dangerous combination that can cause fatigue. Fatigue slows a driver's reaction time, decreases awareness and impairs judgment. Even a slight decrease in reaction time can greatly increase your risk of crashing especially when travelling at highway speeds.

TOP TIPS TO REDUCE YOUR RISK:

â&#x20AC;˘ Plan your journey: Get a good sleep the night before you leave on a long trip and know the route you're going to take so you can plan to stop at rest points along the way. Take a break every two hours on long road trips and avoid driving during the night when you'd normally be asleep. Long weekends always mean more vehicles on the road so plan ahead by checking road and weather conditions on drivebc.ca. â&#x20AC;˘ Take a break: Pull over as soon as you start to feel drowsy. Get out and walk around to get some fresh air. If that's not enough, pull over to a safe area, turn off your car and take a nap. Turning up the radio or air conditioning won't help. The only cure for drowsiness is sleep; it's better to arrive late than not at all. â&#x20AC;˘ Know the signs: We don't often sense the degree of our own fatigue when we're driving so it's important to know the warning signs: - You don't notice a vehicle until it suddenly passes you. - You don't recall driving the last few kilometres. - You're yawning or daydreaming. - You find yourself wandering into the next lane. - Your driving speed creeps up or down. - Your eyes feel heavy or you have difficulty keeping your head up.

QUOTES:

"Being well-rested and staying alert at the wheel is the best way to reach your destination safely," said Todd Stone, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure. "Consider sharing the driving with a passenger if possible to reduce your risk of getting fatigued. Visit drivebc.ca ahead of your trip to check road conditions and plan your rest breaks." "Law enforcement will be keeping watch on B.C. roadways this long weekend to ensure drivers are abiding by the law and making smart choices with their travel plans," said Mike Morris, Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General. "We want everyone to arrive at their destinations safely so that means putting your phone away, being alert and paying attention to the road." "If you're setting out on a road trip this weekend, make sure you're well rested so you stay alert at the wheel," said Chief Constable Neil Dubord, Chair of the B.C. Association of Chiefs of Police Traffic Safety Committee. "We want everyone to arrive at their destinations safely. Police will be out looking for unsafe drivers across the province this long weekend." "The best way to prevent driver fatigue this long weekend is to get a good sleep and start your road trip when you are well rested, typically in the morning, rather than rushing after a full day at work," said Lindsay Matthews, ICBC's director responsible for road safety. "The signs of fatigue can sneak up on you so it's important to recognize the warning signs. Make sure you've gotten plenty of rest and plan to stop at viewpoints or rest stops every two hours."

BlackBerry launches new smartphone, emphasis on beefed-up security ALEKSANDR A SAGAN Canadian Press

TORONTO - In a bid to once again make its struggling hardware business profitable, BlackBerry is launching a new smartphone billed as the most secure Android device available. The company announced the launch Tuesday of the DTEK50, a phone it hopes will appeal to “everyone” due to the insidious threat that mobile security risks now pose to the public at large. “We feel that customers today, certainly businesses and consumers, are beginning to understand just how important security is when it comes to their smartphone,” said Alex Thurber, senior vice-president of global device sales, during a webcast from BlackBerry’s headquarters in Waterloo, Ont. Everyone should be aware of security and privacy, whether they’re the CEO of a Fortune 500 company or a parent, he said. “I certainly want my children to have secure devices. I don’t want the world looking at what they take pictures of or their emails or their text messages.” BlackBerry (TSX:BB) said the DTEK50 has been designed to fend off cyberattacks with features such as built-in malware protection and encryption of all user information. In addition, it provides the ability to see and control which apps are allowed access to features like the phone’s camera. The new product is also BlackBerry’s thinnest and has an on-

screen keyboard - not its traditional keyboard. The DTEK50 will retail for C$429, a sign that the company may have learned from the sales flop of its first Android-powered phone, the Priv. At a cost of C$899 without a carrier contract, the Priv was released late last year and at the time, it was the most expensive Android phone on the market. While BlackBerry hasn’t disclosed Priv phone sales, its most recent quarterly results released a month ago showed the company sold 500,000 smartphones in total (including the Priv). That’s a drop of 100,000 over the previous quarter and 200,000 fewer than two quarters earlier. “We’re very confident that from a product perspective this will sell very well,” Thurber said of the DTEK50, whose name is derived from a feature on the Priv that informs users of their device security status and how to improve it. But that price likely won’t be enough to win over a large number of customers, said Detlev Zwick, an associate professor of marketing at York University’s Schulich School of Business. They will ask themselves what makes the DTEK50 different from other phones in the same price range, and while the answer may be its stronger security measures, that may not be enough to sway them, he said. “I think most consumers in that price range simply don’t care much about that,” he said.

HOROSCOPES by Jacqueline Bigar

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You’ll respond well to someone who often delights and teases you. Allow greater give-andtake with this person. Wherever you encounter each other -- be it at the gym, at work or at the grocery store -- you’ll make a point of stopping and sharing news. Make plans for a lunch together. Tonight: Clear out some shopping first. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You could be surprised by everything that falls into your lap. Someone will force you to look at a situation differently. Others are very responsive to your ideas, and will want to change direction. Don’t be surprised if one person drags his or her feet. Tonight: Where you want to be. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) A lot might go unsaid, despite your attempt to clear the air. If someone doesn’t want to hear what you’re saying, your efforts will be moot. Clearly you can control only yourself and no one else. Push less and allow others

to bring up the topic in question. Tonight: Nap first. CANCER (June 21-July 22) A group meeting proves to be important. You tend to see life from a more upbeat perspective. Consider your options with a friendship; they need to be evaluated. You know what is important to you with a friendship. Is there a problem here? Tonight: Where the fun is. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You might need to rethink a problem that affects your work, image or community involvement. Be willing to adjust your schedule to incorporate an unanticipated happening. You have more than enough support to make the right decision. Tonight: Time to retreat! VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Read between the lines with those at a distance. Listen more and speak less. Look at what is being left out or what isn’t being responded to. A new friend might be charming, but also could throw a tantrum if he or she doesn’t get his or her way. Tonight: Make plans to meet a pal.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You might feel as if you are on top of a project, at least until a close associate tries to challenge the very basis of your thinking. Discuss this person’s perspective, and listen to his or her suggestions. Avoid getting defensive. Think positively. Tonight: Opt for togetherness. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Let others make the first move. In some way, it will please you to keep your thoughts to yourself and perhaps act a little mysterious. Let others run the show; they will need you soon enough. Take advantage of the break and the change of pace. Tonight: All smiles. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Your instinct to get a lot done is right-on. Don’t even consider that an associate or boss is not paying attention. You will get feedback that will please you, but don’t start celebrating just yet. You are at the beginning of a change. Tonight: Decide how much energy you have. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You can put up quite a struggle and win, but what happens if

you develop a laissez-faire attitude? You are likely to shake up your immediate circle. You might want to test the waters. Allow yourself to be uncomfortable with a change of roles. Tonight: Go with your imagination. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Do not get stuck in rigid thinking. You could hear startling news, and might need to take a walk to process what is being shared. Several of your friends seem to be unusually caring. Someone will make an offer that is hard to resist. Tonight: Hang out with a special friend. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Keep conversations flowing. You might find that your perceptions about a certain situation or person could change because of what you hear. Use care when handling your funds, as you easily could make a mistake. Don’t agree to a financial proposition. Tonight: Hang out. BORN TODAY Actress Taylor Schilling (1984), singer/songwriter Pete Yorn (1974), actress Tracy Shaw (1973)

ANNIE’S MAILBOX by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I am a Care Bear, and my husband is a cyborg. What I mean is that I get emotional from almost anything. I once cried during a commercial for laundry detergent. I know it sounds cliched, but I love happy endings, puppies, babies, the color pink and -- of course -- talking about my feelings. My husband, on the other hand, is pretty much the exact opposite. I’ve never seen him cry. He barely talks to his siblings (although they’re a little nutty, but that’s a different letter). He is constantly on his phone either working or playing solitaire. And getting him to open up is like pulling teeth. Actually, I think pulling teeth might be easier, because he wouldn’t have to talk. We have two kids, and he is great with them. He is super engaged and talks to them on their level. Maybe he feels safe because they won’t judge him. He’s not mean or neglectful to me. He says “I love you.” But I can’t help feeling frustrated when I love talking about feelings and emotions and he doesn’t. How do I connect with a man who is so closed off? -- Funshine Bear Dear Funshine: Opposites attract -- and then drive each other nuts. But with effort, you and your husband can use your differences as a source of strength and balance. The key is good communication, even if your communication styles are totally different. I would say your husband is more Secret Bear than cyborg. He has feelings. He just expresses them nonverbally, through actions -- such as spending time with the kids or putting his arm around you when a Tide ad tugs at your heartstrings. Try to recognize these as legitimate expressions of love. When you’d really like him to talk about something, let him know. Don’t be judgmental or accuse him of never opening up, as this would only make him withdraw further. Instead, put those Care-a-Lot skills to work and articulate how you feel. Dear Annie: A few weeks ago, my boyfriend and I went to a beach bonfire for my cousin’s 15th birthday. We enjoyed chatting and catching up with the family. Everything was going great until I had to use the bathroom and, unfortunately, the only bathroom in sight was a port-a-potty. I hate port-a-potties. They’re disgusting. I don’t even care if I find a freshly placed porta-potty and I am the first person to use it. I still think they’re full of germs, and I get incredibly grossed out. Anyway, after weighing my options and realizing that I could not hold it until I got home, my fate was sealed. I was going to have to use the port-a-potty. I asked my boyfriend to walk over with me, and he didn’t get what the big deal was but agreed to walk with me. I told him that because he -- as a man -- doesn’t always have to get near the seat, he will never understand the trauma that is the portable toilet. Why is this such an issue for me? I’m not germophobic or obsessed with cleanliness, but I can’t stand these things. -- Reluctant Reliever Dear Reluctant: I’ve never seen anyone heading into a port-a-potty looking especially jazzed, but clearly it bothers you more than most. Your best bet is to be prepared. When you know you’re going to be in a situation where you might have to use a port-apotty, pack some hand sanitizer, toilet paper and toilet seat liners in your bag. It might also help to practice holding your breath. Send your questions for Annie Lane to dearannie@creators.com.

Marlene Schmidt 1934 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 2016 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother on Thursday, July 21, 2016 in Cranbrook, BC at 82 years of age.

She loved knitting, sewing, quilting, gardening and cooking large family meals. She worked briefly for the post office and did Royâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s books and was his right hand â&#x20AC;&#x153;manâ&#x20AC;? for many years. Marlene had a great sense of humour and a big heart. She received the volunteer of the year award numerous times for the F. W. Green Home and Joseph Creek care homes. She was an amazing and talented lady who will be greatly missed by her many friends and loving family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You will be in our hearts foreverâ&#x20AC;?.

Statcan looks for stronger powers to get data Jordan Press Canadian Press OTTAWA - Statistics Canada is privately floating the idea of new powers that would make all of its surveys mandatory by default and force certain companies to hand over requested data, such as credit card transactions and Internet search records. Currently, the agency can ask for any information held by governments and businesses, but officials have long found it hard to get information like point-ofsale transactions that could give a more detailed and accurate picture of household spending. The agency’s proposal would compel governments and companies to hand over information, and levy fines to discourage “unreasonable impositions” that “restrict or prevent the flow of information for statistical purposes.” Corporate fines would depend on a company’s size and the length of any delays. The changes would also do away with the threat of jail time for anyone who

refuses to fill out a mandatory survey, such as the long-form census. The recommendations, contained in a discussion paper Statistics Canada provided to The Canadian Press, would enshrine in law the agency’s independence in deciding what data it needs and how to collect it. New legislation to update the Statistics Act is expected to be tabled this fall, and the Liberals have promised to give Statistics Canada more freedom from government influence. The current law permits the federal government to make unilateral changes - eliminating longitudinal studies about the Canadian population, for instance, or making the long-form census a voluntary survey, a Statcan spokesperson said. Should the federal Liberals agree to the agency’s proposals, it would build a political wall between the government and Statistics Canada and ensure statistical decisions by the chief statistician take priority over political considerations.

Innovation Minister Navdeep Bains, who is responsible for Statistics Canada, said the government is still reviewing the Statistics Act. He said the government is committed to “strengthening the independence of Statistics Canada.” “For a national statistical office to be credible, there must be a high degree of professional independence,” Bains said in a written statement. “Canadians need to trust that their data are produced according to strict professional standards, ethics and scientific principles.” The agency delivered the paper earlier this year to the National Statistics Council, a body of outside experts that acts as an advisory board for the chief statistician. In the paper, Statistics Canada argues for a new, modern framework that would better mesh with the Liberal government’s priority on evidence-based decision making, while counteracting mounting concern about declining response rates and diminished data quality.

Chemical, biological and nuclear threats focus of NATO exercise BILL GR AVEL AND Canadian Press

SUFFIELD, Alta. The possibility of a terrorist attack using biological or chemical weapons makes the focus of a 15-day NATO training exercise at Canada’s largest training base even more important, says a counterterrorism expert. Even though the majority of recent attacks have involved explosives or armed gunmen, that doesn’t mean a more serious threat isn’t out there, says Chris Corry with Defence Research and Development Canada. “Although people think it’s a low-risk threat, it’s a high consequence threat,” the former Canadian infantry officer said Tuesday. Exercise Precise Response 2016 at Canadian Forces Base Suffield in southeastern Alberta isn’t about high-tech military equipment or heavily armed soldiers. It is focusing on chemical, biological, radiolog-

ical and explosive material. More than 350 chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear specialists from 10 NATO countries - including Canada, the United States, Britain, France and Germany - are testing their skills in a realistic environment. Nearly all of the participants are wearing some sort of biohazard suit. During three simultaneous exercises set in the imaginary country of Canuckistan, teams investigate reports of terrorist activity and follow clues to chemical weapons factories and eventually bring back material to mobile labs to check its content. Capt. Nesse Timmers of the Netherlands is commanding one of the exercises. He said a team approach is important in the battle against terrorism so as to be ready for when the “real deal” comes along. “This will be the future of all armies,” Timmers said. “It’s not one

army that will win the war. It’s co-operation between all armies.” Canadian Warrant Officer Stephan Allen said the Suffield exercise is a chance to practise and apply all the specialized skills that the countries have. “Outside of Canada, we’re also looking at our linkages to NATO, so if we have a joint task force going anywhere we can apply some specialists and operators to help out a larger operation,” said Allen. But he doesn’t believe the current world climate is making a difference on the approach the international soldiers are taking. “It’s one of the many threats that’s always out there. It’s not really super high. I don’t see it tied to the last few months or anything like that,” Allen said. “I don’t think it’s any real change from what it’s been for many, many years.”
