Fall Fair coming up C AROLYN GR ANT Bulletin Editor


EVERYTHING’S UNDER CONTROL: The deer of Kimberley keep calm and controlled in the shadow of the animal control van.

Building report suggests another excellent year C AROLYN GR ANT Bulletin Editor

The building report for the month of August in Kimberley continues a positive trend, as investment in Kimberley continues to rebound. Thus far in 2016, there have been 26 new single family dwellings, compared to 18 in 2015, which was also considered a good year. “The building re-

port is spectacular,” said Mayor Don McCormick. “We are on track to break the 30 new single family dwellings barrier, a considerable increase over the 24 last year. People want to live in Kimberley and that’s fantastic. “Thirty new homes has a substantial impact on taxes. That’s new revenue, and that gives us some flexibility. We’re pretty happy about that.”

1st Anniversary

A Kimberley tradition for almost 40 years, it’s time once again for the Community Fall Fair — always the last full weekend of September. As always the fair promises a vast array of interesting booths and activities. Fair Chair Bev Middlebrook says booths will be for sale right up until opening Saturday morning. In addition to all the booths there are plenty of activities for the kids, including the bouncy tent. The Community Fall Fair is an opportunity for non-profits to raise funds and this year two new groups are on board, the Kimberley Refugee Resettlement Group and the Kimberley Gymnastics Club.

KRRG will welcome family this week Family of five from Pakistan to arrive this week C AROLYN GR ANT Bulletin Editor

“We have a family.” The Kimberley Refugee Resettlement Group, which has been fundraising and planning for almost a year, is thrilled to announce that they have been informed that the refugee family they will sponsor will arrive in Kimberley this week, likely on Thursday. “It’s so exciting,” said KRRG member Louise Hockley. “We are beside ourselves. We worked so hard to get to this point.” The announcement was made Tuesday night at a KRRG social where the last household items were being collected.

The family is from Pakistan — Mom, Dad and three children, aged 5, 6 and 8. They have been living in a refugee camp in Thailand for the past several years and are enroute from Bangkok, with a stopover in Vancouver. KRRG representatives Dave Hale, Louise Hockley, Colin MacKenzie, Debra Wills and Tasha Haiduk will meet the family at the airport and drive them to their new home. KRRG is sensitive to the family’s privacy and their name and other details will be given when they are comfortable with meeting the community. “When the family is ready, we will introduce them,” said Cyndy Moore, another KRRG member. There is more than enough money in the bank to support the family for some time if needed. The federal government

requires at least $15,000 saved before a group can sponsor a family. “We have that and then some,” Hockley said. “We are feeling very secure. If needs be we can support them for a lengthy time.” All those funds were raised through spaghetti dinners and dessert nights and other events. The group even made $1000 selling homemade gnocchi. “The garage sale was a big gift from the Food Bank. It was so successful, we are donating $1000 to the Food Bank,” Moor said. The group is sensitive to criticism that Canada should take care of its own first, but Hockley says they do and are. “People in our group are not only working with those from overseas but at home as well,” Hockley said.

College gets provincial trades funding TREVOR CRAWLEY

The College of the Rockies is getting $187,000 in funding from the provincial government that is going towards equipment for trades training programs. Announced by Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett on Friday, the funding will directly benefit students in the automotive service technician, heavy duty equipment technician and piping trades programs. “Students at the College of the Rockies will have the opportunity to develop hands-on experience on industry-standard tools and equipment that are being used at workplace in their communities,” said Bennett. “Our government is putting student first in line for jobs in our diverse, strong and growing economy.” The funding will be split between the three trades programs and will go to equipment purchases that are built specifically for training

purposes. “It’s equipment that has been specifically designed for training in this exact area,” said John White, an instructor with the Automotive Service Technician program. “So you have to think about how getting used and old parts is something that we’ve done in the past to make our programs run, so having new and updated quality components and test equipment that are built for training are really important.” Bennett highlighted the importance of having industry-standard trades training at the College of the Rockies, noting that all but one of the 16 students were from Cranbrook. He praised the government’s BC Skills for Jobs Blueprint, which has identified one million job openings in B.C. by 2025 — two thirds of which will come from retirements. “Eight out of ten of those jobs will require post-secondary education or trades training,”


John White, an instructor with the Automotive Service Technician program at the College of the Rockies, shows off some new equipment to Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett. Bennett said, as he addressed the student apprentices during the announcement. “There is

just no doubt that you’re doing the right thing.” The focus on filling in-demand jobs has

ShelterBox looks for support for displaced people in Iraq Emergency in Iraq: one million displaced from Mosul. ShelterBox responds to one of the largest humanitarian crises of the year

In the next few weeks the city of Mosul in northern Iraq, which has been under Islamic State rule for two years, will be liberated. This final offensive will displace up to 1 million people, the majority of whom will have nowhere to go and it is impossible to know in which direction they will flee. ShelterBox and the humanitarian community are preparing now to ensure that

there is enough aid to assist the displaced people. Together, we can ensure that as many families as possible have shelter as soon as they need it. Although ShelterBox is always preparing for whatever happens next, this is a situation where we already know huge numbers of people will need help. ShelterBox has been working in Iraq for the last four years helping families displaced by conflict. A ShelterBox Response Team is already on the ground monitoring the situation and we must be ready to act when the time comes. We cannot fail these already vulnerable families. We need to ensure they have a safe place to sleep and the ability to recover. ShelterBox aims to raise $1.7 million to

provide ShelterKits, tents and supplies to assist these families. With winter coming, the situation is desperate. We urgently need your support. The Rotary Club of Kimberley will have its ShelterBox display at the Kimberley Community Fall Fair from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept 24, and from 11 am to 4 pm on Sunday Sept 25. Last year a record $4,700 was donated at the Fall Fair. ShelterBox Ambassador Graham Mann has set a goal of $5,170 for this September. Visit the booth to learn about the new ShelterBox Aid program that has made ShelterBox the United Nations preferred provider of shelter for disaster victims. Your donations help people, not governments. Booth visitors will receive a $5

discount coupon from Grubstake Pizza. ShelterBox Canada’s work would not be possible without the support of our dedicated supporters. By supporting ShelterBox Canada today, you can help us provide shelter the second it is needed. Thank you for helping to ensure that no family is without shelter. Your donations change lives. Please donate now. Go to or deposit your cheque, payable to ShelterBox Canada, at the Kootenay Savings Credit Union in Kimberley. All donations of $20 or more will receive a tax receipt.

been a government priority for a few years through the Skills for Jobs Blueprint, which

was an opportunity to give trades training a higher profile at post-secondary institu-

tions. “We had to find a way to re-engineer our post-secondary education system and we started to focus money more on this kind of a program than some of the things we were doing before,” Bennett said. “What we did generally, was we said 25 per cent of the operating grants for public post-secondary institutions like College of the Rockies, would go to support in-demand jobs.” Jack Moes, the Dean of Trades and Technology at COTR, says that government funding support is vital in industries where equipment is expensive and can quickly become outdated. “In order for us to continue to play a vital role in preparing skilled workers to support the B.C. economy, it is critical that our students have access to and are trained on the most upto-date equipment and technology possible,” Moes said.

Another award for the SunMine SunMine selected as Top 15 Project For Canada’s Clean50 KIMBERLEY, B.C. - The City of Kimberley’s SunMine has been selected as one of Canada’s top 15 sustainability-oriented projects. “Canada’s Clean50 Top 15 Project Awards are announced annually by Delta Management Group and the Clean50 organization to recognize the 15 sustainability oriented projects, completed in the previous two years, which have done the most to advance the cause of sustainability and clean capitalism in Canada. Projects are chosen for their innovation, ability to inspire others, or to inform.” states Gavin Pitchford, CEO of the Delta Management Group. ”Delta’s criteria in determining Honourees is to carefully consider actual measurable accomplishments, demonstrated innovation, collaboration with other organizations, and the power of the project contribution to inspire other Canadians to take similar action”. “The SunMine – Converting a Minesite to a Solar Field project was chosen after rigourous screening and research by Delta Management, with advice

from internal researchers and external advisors, and was among the Top 15 Projects selected from a large initial pool of well qualified nominees. “ A true collaboration, Michel DeSpot of the EcoSmart Foundation first approached the City of Kimberley and Teck Resources in 2008 about a partnership to build Western Canada’s first large-scale solar facility on a reclaimed mine site. In the heart of BC and with over 300 days of annual sunshine, Kimberley was a natural – and in 2011 76% of voters supported the City borrowing $2M towards the construction. Teck provided a reclaimed mining site, an existing substation, and $2M in support to the project, and with help from other funders, including $1M the Province’s Innovative Clean Energy Fund, the project commenced commercial operations in June 2015, becoming the first largescale grid-connected solar facility in Western Canada, the first in Canada to utilize solar tracking technology and the first solar facility built by a municipality, or on a reclaimed mine site. The 997 MWh of electricity generated by the SunMine in the first 12 months resulted in the avoidance of 604 tonnes of CO2, generated $195,730 in revenue for the City.

LOCAL NEWS KRRG will welcome Community family this week Fall Fair this

From page 1 “We work hand in hand with the food bank, we try to help ever ybody. When anyone asks, I say I do care for all. I am a director of the Food Bank, we help people around the world through my Church, through KRRG I help bring people to safety. “When someone questions helping refugees, I am tempted to ask, what do you do? We believe in helping everyone. We have helped some locals in need.” “So much is placed on the refugee, fear of terrorism, fear of losing jobs, but people like this family really are the bravest of the brave,” said Moore. “And who’s to say that new refugees won’t start a business and provide employment. Fear does seem to be the essence of the doubts. But as Socrates said, ‘I am not an Athenian or a Greek. I am a citizen of the world’. We believe in thinking globally and acting locally. That comes from the UN.” “And it expands like a pebble in the water,” Hockley said. “I am my brother’s keeper.” The odds of a family being sponsored are staggering, said Moore. “Since we arrived here this evening one hour ago, 1,440 people in 125 countries have been newly dis-

placed. Of these 1,440, 1,150 or 80 per cent are women and children. Only eight of these people have a chance of being resettled based on the UN Refugee Agency statistics.” With the fundraising over, at least for this family, other KRRG team members will now assist with their integration into life in Kimberley. Not a lot is known about what part of Pakistan they are from originally. It is known that they speak Urdu. “Dave Hale went to the College to see if there are any students who speak Urdu and there are. A brother and sister are delighted to act as interpreters.” That kind of assistance, making friends and building partners in the community has been one of the most rewarding parts of the process. For instance, quite a few group members have received training from CBAL on how to tutor ESL students. Many of them have already begun working with ESL students in Kimberley. “Kimberley always comes forward when the need is there,” Hockley said. “We are feeling very satisfied,” Moore said. “And we don’t plan to stop. We will take a breath, reflect on how everything worked, and then hopefully sponsor other families in the

future. “It’s amazing how it brings us all together.” Some sobering statistics: There are 65.3 million forcibly displaced people worldwide, 21.3 million of them refugees. There are 10 million stateless people in the world, who have been denied a nationality and access to basic rights such as education, healthcare, employment and freedom of movement.. 54 per cent of the w orld’s refuge es come from just three countries, Somalia, Afghanistan and Syria. 33,972 people a day are forced to flee their homes because of conflict and persecution. Unaccompanied or separated children in 78 countries – mainly Afghans, Eritreans, Syrians, and Somalis – lodged some 98,400 asylum applications in 2015. This was the highest number on record since UNHCR started collecting such data in 2006. Children below 18 years of age constituted about half of the refugee population in 2015, up from 41 per cent in 2009 and the same as in 2014. By end-2015, about 3.2 million people were waiting for a decision on their application for asylum.

Timber Supply Area Review



Bill Bennett


BC’s Chief Forester will review the Cranbrook Timber Supply Area, where we live, work and recreate. The results of her review will determine how the next 10 years of logging will occur in our region.


The Chief Forester has created a discussion paper on how the Cranbrook TSA will be logged over the next decade. If you hunt, hike, fish, berry pick, quad, snowmobile, guide or do anything else on crown land, you may be interested.


3. You can find out more about this process by reading the Cranbrook TSA Timber Supply Analysis Discussion Paper at or the Forestry office in Cranbrook at 1902 Theatre Road (250-426-1781).

If adopted, the proposed Official Community Plan (OCP) amendment will replace Table 5.4 in Section 23, I-3 Wildstone Neighbourhood Plan, with a revised table that reflects dwelling unit redistribution consistent with the proposed development for Lot 9. Specifically, the minor text amendment will adjust the dwelling unit distribution to be constructed on Lot 9 from 60 single family, 40 duplex and 25 townhomes to 40 single family, 48 duplex and 37 townhomes. The total maximum number of dwelling units remains the same at 125. A copy of the proposed “City of Cranbrook Official Community Plan Amendment Bylaw No. 3872, 2016” is available at City Hall for public information. If you require more information or wish to comment on the proposed OCP amendment, please contact Rob Veg, Senior Planner at (250) 489-0241. Please provide written comments by October 3, 2016.

any of my older friends are now dead. After serving in the army, navy or air force during World War 11 and surviving the bombing and thus thinking themselves immortal, they launched into the risky sports of rock climbing and tackling monstrous mountains but they still managed to survive and eventually to succumb to disease, dementia or over-whelming old age with someone wiping the drool off their chins as they attempted to recount their earlier deeds of derring do. My friend Gerry is not as old as my really old buddies now ought to be but he is beginning to rue the fact that, so far, he has no tales that might regale his relatives when, should that day arrive, they too will be forced into the drool dabbing. Then Gerry decided that he’d maybe climb Fisher Peak; that would be his first deed of derring-do. He’d had a go at climbing Fisher Peak years before but had

become distracted by the marmots in the basin below the shale slide. He’d dreaded that horrible loose slope and so had wandered off track with the camera his son Ralphie had given him and then it had grown late and he’d come down. Then, after his loving spouse Martha had climbed the mountain with a couple of her ditzy girl-friends, Gerry had reasoned that, if they could do it, any one could do it and, therefore, it wouldn’t be worth his efforts; he’d try something nobler. He’d eye-balled the Steeples and Teepee Mountain from the safety of the valley and then rounded up his buddy Harry and had a second go at Fisher. They’d nip up and down then go for a beer. Harry insisted on taking his old pick-up for that attempt but the rust-bucket had refused to get over a mean-looking bump in Peter the road and so the duo gone for an early beer Warland had or two. Gerry did better the next year with Tommy Dusack, who owned a four-by-four which easily surmounted the obstructions in the road but it still took an amazing amount of time for the duo to get to the marmot basin and there they ran out of steam. Tommy stormed the shale slide but fell over and cracked his knee, and they didn’t get much further that day. Gazing out over Kootenay Lake from

the ferry one day Gerry thought that maybe he could swim across. He did earn a swimming certificate when he was in Junior High and full of testosterone and he had swum across Wasa Lake on a grad dare, but it did look a long way. So he consulted with his friend Hal and Hal had suggested that Moyie might be a better bet. He had a boat up at his cabin on the south lake and he could accompany Gerry in it, and maybe catch a kokanee on the way. So they tried on a quiet mid-week day late in August and Gerry didn’t quite drown. They set off across from the pub and Gerry was convinced he was going to freeze his butt off so swam fast while Hal messed about with his rod and bait. His finger tips and toes thoroughly iced up, Gerry called for his friend to come and get him out of there but Hal couldn’t start the motor and was messing about with his oars and not having much luck so Gerry turned around and headed back to the rescue. Eventually, he got Hal back to safety and ran up and down a trail for a while until he got himself warm enough to struggle to his own pick-up and turn the heater up as far as it would go, then he drove home. That day when the flame of optimism spluttered and died once more, Gerry went looking for fame elsewhere, or he’d make up stuff.

Liberals to pour $500m into rental housing units Jeff Nagel

The BC Liberals are pledging to finance 2,900 new housing units through a new $500 million commitment to housing initiatives.

Few details have been provided, but Housing Minister Rich Coleman said the goal is to have new projects approved by the end of March and built over

the next two to three years. That surge of housing into the rental market – billed as the largest in B.C.’s history –  will “change a whole bunch

of dynamics,” Coleman predicted. Most of the units are to be affordable housing, built in partnership with non-profits, local governments, other or-

ganizations and the private sector. The mix of units promised would provide homes for a wide range of residents, including seniors, students, First Nations,

youth aging out of care, developmentally disabled adults and women fleeing abuse. The B.C. government on Aug. 1 began charging foreign buyers Get Internet 150/150 for $42/mo. for 6 months on a 2 year plan when you bundle.‡

of Metro Vancouver real estate a 15 per cent property transfer tax, which is currently forecast to generate $165 million in new revenue that will partly go to new housing. Last week, the quarterly financial update revealed the province now has a nearly $2-billion surplus. “We’ve got a large surplus this year so we are able to afford to do this,” Premier Christy Clark told reporters Monday at the announcement in Burnaby. Property transfer tax revenue has surged with what has been a whitehot housing market, at least up until the new tax kicked in. PTT revenue is now forecast at $2.1 billion for 2016, an increase of $965 million from what had been budgeted. The extra $500 million for housing is on top of $355 million over five years the province already has budgeted for 2,000 new units. Clark said the housing fund is one of the “pieces of the puzzle” in improving housing affordability on top of government actions such as the foreign buyers’ tax, a new luxury tax on the most expensive homes and cracking down on shady practices in the real estate business. Other levels of government have to step up as well, she said. “The federal government has to do its bit,” Clark said. “They have to make sure dirty money isn’t finding a way into our country. They also have to make sure they’re making land available for development and incenting through the tax system more rentals.” Clark said the biggest role falls to local municipalities that have the power to zone land specifically for affordable housing. “Local mayors and councils have to be part of the solution because we can’t do the zoning for them.” NDP leader John Horgan denounced the Liberal housing promise as a “vague” and belated response to a crisis they have done nothing to prevent. “They ignored this issue for a decade,” Horgan said. “They just started talking about affordability when they couldn’t avoid it any more.”

Province grants Baldy Ridge extension at Elkview mine For the Townsman

Issuance of an environmental assessment certificate to Teck Coal Limited for the Baldy Ridge extension project today means greater economic opportunity for southeast British Columbia. The Baldy Ridge project is an extension of the current Teck Elkview operations open-pit coal mine. The project will mine approximately 153 million metric tonnes of clean coal and will extend the overall life of the Elkview mine by about 23 years, until 2045. “The Baldy Ridge expansion project is an important economic development for East Kootenay,” said Energy and Mines Minister Bill Bennett. “The jobs and business opportunities supported by Teck’s current Elkview operations will be sustained by work expansion to the extension project over

the next three decades after the end of mining in the currently active areas.” The project is expected to create the following employment opportunities: • Approximately 1,652 person-years of direct on-site employment over the six-year construction period. • Approximately

4,043 person-years of total employment in B.C. in the Crowsnest Pass over the six-year construction period. • Approximately 31,304 person-years of direct on-site employment over the 29-year operations period. • Between 10 and 20 direct positions during the closure and reclamation stage.

Luke Pierce may only be in his second season as the head coach of the Kootenay Ice, but he is determined to not let past experience shape his team. After a disappointing end to the preseason this past weekend, where the team lost both their exhibition contests in Crowsnest Pass, AB, Pierce has made it clear that no one’s place is safe, no matter how long they’ve been in the league. “Normally you have everything set [but we’ve still] got five lines of guys up front and nine defencemen, so I can’t tell you who [is on] our opening day lineup yet,” Pierce said. “The competition continues [and] we’ll see how practice goes and put the guys that give us the best chance to win in the lineup on Friday.” While Pierce found some consolation in the team’s 0-5 preseason, saying he was impressed by the resiliency of some the younger players and that, at the very least, it “prevents you from being over confident”, he’s been disappointed with the preparedness of a few of the older players. “We need some of our veteran players to be much better and lead the way,” Pierce said.

“For the most part, our young guys have done a real good job of staying around and hanging in there. I think [that makes the] focus really shift to your veteran players. We’ll see who can establish themselves.” Pierce suggested that while veteran players may not have fully transitioned into ‘season mode’ quite yet, time is running out if they want to make sure they’ll spend the rest of the year in the WHL. “Some of our veteran players need to start finding their groove,” he explained, saying that Jason Wenzel, a defenceman who was released from the team over the weekend after spending 57 games with the Ice last season, “just wasn’t there”. “Some of our younger guys maybe passed [Wenzel]. We need to see some [more players] start to separate.” Although the door is clearly open for new names to rise and old ones to fall before the ink dries on the opening night scorecard, there are a couple players Pierce likely wouldn’t mind putting down in permanent marker. “Payton Lee will start Friday night,” Pierce said confidently on their

goaltending situation. “He’s a 20 year old guy [and] we’re going into a tough building and he’s earned that, there’s no question.”

“We need some of our veteran players to be much better and lead the way.” Luke Pierce The other two [goalies] have played better as of late,” he added, however. “Declan [Hobbs] is the best we’ve seen him since camp started, so that’s encouraging for us. I think again, that competition is going to play into it [and] at the end of the day, the right guy will probably separate a little bit.” The other name that Pierce hinted will likely be on his opening lineup is Zak Zbrovsky, but his position isn’t guaranteed either. Unlike his teammates however, his

conflict is with a higher league. Zbrovsky has been spending the week at the Traverse City Prospects Tournament with the New York Rangers of the NHL and his immediate return to Cranbrook is therefore not guaranteed, although likely. Pierce said he spoke to Zbrovsky after his first game in Traverse City, and hopes that if he is back with the Ice this season, he’ll continue to be the leader he was for them last season “He wasn’t real happy with the way he played [in that first game with the Rangers] so I hope he plays better there and can come back feeling good,” Pierce said. “Even if he struggles a little bit [though], that just adds motivation for him wanting to get off to a real good start [with the Ice].” Although the Ice are in a bit of a lull this week, as far as games go, with preseason over and the regular season not quite here, the stakes have never been higher. The remaining 28 players on this squad still all have a chance to impress during practice to see who will don a Kootenay Ice sweater for the season opener in Calgary, on Friday night.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Conversations open up more -- not just because of your efforts, but also because someone finally decides to let you in. The importance of endurance has never been more apparent. Follow your instincts, despite some negativity. Tonight: Don’t interfere with a friend’s self-expression. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Be more in touch with your needs. Your drive to find a solution will be remarkable to an observer. A friend shares more about his or her long-term aspirations. You might wonder if you play a part in this person’s plans. Don’t make assumptions. Tonight: Do some shopping. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Your energy and magnetism soar. Others feel compelled to say “yes” to you. Use this moment to push ahead and make progress with a key desire or wish. What appears to be a dream could become a reality, as long as you don’t feed into

any negativity. Tonight: Trust your gut. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Know when to talk and when to listen. Fatigue surrounds a project that seems boring and/ or endless. Take a break, go off and do something that invigorates you. Opt to take some time off. In the long run, this is likely to increase your productivity. Tonight: Do something just for you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You could be exhausted by all the activity going on around you. You might not know which direction to head in. Perhaps it is time to think about pursuing a long-term desire. Refuse to accept “no” as an answer from a child or loved one. Tonight: Where the action is. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Listen to news openly. You might need to spend more money on an item than you originally had anticipated. Use care around a family member who tends to rain on your parade; don’t let his or her attitude get to you. Tonight: Count on being up late.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) A new kind of energy emanates from you, and it appears to have positive results. A neighbor or sibling continues to be negative. Ignore this person’s attitude; soon enough, you will elicit a positive reaction from him or her. Tonight: Break past an emotional barrier. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Choose to relate to others on a one-on-one level. Opportunities seem to appear from out of nowhere. Optimism surrounds a relationship and a new beginning. At first, you might be hesitant to express what you need. Don’t hold back. Tonight: Dinner at a cozy spot. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Negativity is likely to throw your ideas and actions into a place where they can easily be sabotaged. Be aware of how you might be jinxing yourself. Allow a friend’s perspective to seep into yours and help you get past this pattern. Tonight: Be flattered by an exciting invitation. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Pace yourself, and allow greater give-and-take with those who

are a part of your daily life. Don’t allow a sense of negativity to take over. Understand what you are concerned about. Analyze the pros and cons of this attitude. Tonight: Do what you must first. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Allow your creativity to take over. Sometimes being overly realistic and/or grim simply does not work. You can count on a friend becoming more apparent than ever. Let this person know how much you appreciate his or her loyalty. Tonight: Relish the company around you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Tension soars, especially if you become overly analytical. Others won’t appreciate you pulling apart their dreams or wishes. Trust and belief will carry someone to the finish line. Witness the power of a close friend’s will. Tonight: Stay close to home if you can. BORN TODAY Singer/songwriter Leonard Cohen (1934), actor Bill Murray (1950), author Stephen King (1947)

DEAR ANNIE by Annie Lane

DIRECT CONTACT Dear Annie: My husband is a salesman and is constantly working, regardless of time of day or whether we’re on vacation. He wears a Bluetooth earpiece, so I can never tell whether he is on the phone. And regardless of whether he’s on a phone call, he is always engaged in his email. If I ask him a question, he will usually answer but rarely look up and make eye contact. I worry this sets a bad precedent for our children. I wish he could disconnect and focus on our family when he is home. I’ve read many studies that discuss the importance of engaging directly with children, and I fear that’s he not able to effectively connect. I also am skeptical he’s always working and think he may secretly be listening to music or podcasts, checking fantasy football results, etc. I understand that we all need a distraction on occasion, but it is unacceptable to do this around our kids. And I would appreciate it if he didn’t do this around me. When I ask him to limit his attachment to his phone and email around the kids, he tells me he has to work. Is there a better way for me to approach him? -- Crackberry Wife Dear Crackberry: Let’s start with a silver lining: If your husband is able to spend time with the kids during work, that’s a big plus. Many salesmen travel all week and rarely see their children. Ask your husband to spend 30 or 60 minutes with the children every day, during which he unplugs and connects. He may eat a meal with them, help with homework or play a sport or a board game. You’re correct that children do best with undivided attention, but it’s also great that they can learn from your husband’s work ethic. A lot of time with work and a little time with the kids will go a long way for everyone and still allow your husband to peek at his fantasy football results on occasion. Dear Annie: My sister “Clarabel” lives on the West Coast, and I live in the middle of the heartland about 10 minutes from our mom. My mom and Clarabel go back and forth between getting along and not speaking to each other. The problem is they try to use me as a messenger. When I visit my mom, she’ll go on and on about why she is angry with Clarabel. I tell my mom that I want to spend our time visiting and talking about other things and she needs to talk to Clarabel on her own, that I am not relaying the message. Despite my repeated attempts to change the subject, my mother continues to rant. I cut my visits short. When Clarabel calls, she wants to know what Mom said about her. I tell Clarabel that she needs to call Mom and talk to her. I feel that if I shared what the other says, I’d be adding to the drama and being used. Clarabel gets upset with me and says I should tell her. Annie, am I wrong for wanting to stay out of their fights? -- In the Middle Dear Middle: You are so smart to stay out of the middle of their fights, and they shouldn’t be trying to put you there in the first place. Point out to your mom that because of her ranting and complaining about your sister, you are cutting your visits short. Say that in effect, she is distancing herself from both of her children. No one wants to be around someone who is complaining about another person, especially when it comes to loved ones. Point out to them that the constant fighting is taking a toll on you and your whole family as a unit. If they keep up their kvetching, at least try to distance yourself emotionally from it so it doesn’t bring you down.

Open fires to be permitted in parts of southeast B.C. CASTLEGAR - Effective at noon PDT on Sept. 20, 2016, Category 2 open fires will once again be permitted throughout the Southeast Fire Centre, due to a decreased risk of wildfire in the region. At the same time, Category 3 open fires will once again be permitted in the Columbia Fire Zone. However, Category 3 open fires will remain prohibited in the Arrow Fire Zone, Boundary Fire Zone, Cranbrook Fire Zone, Invermere Fire Zone and Kootenay Lake Fire Zone. Category 2 burning allows for up to two concurrently burning piles no larger than two metres high by three metres wide, or the burning of stubble or grass over an area of less than 0.2 hectares. Category 2 open burning also allows for the use of fireworks, burn barrels, exploding binary targets and sky lanterns. Category 3 open fires include: • fires that are larger than two metres high by three metres wide • the burning of stubble or grass over an area greater than 0.2 hectares • the burning of three or more fires concurrently (with individual burn piles no larger than two metres high by three metres wide) • one or more burning windrows Anyone wishing to light a Category 3 open fire must obtain a burn registration number ahead of time by calling 1 888 797-1717 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. To learn more about open burning categories, fire bans and fire restrictions, please visit: The BC Wildfire Service is asking people to take the following precautions with any permitted outdoor burning: • Ensure that enough people, water and tools are on hand to control the fire and to prevent it escaping. • Do not burn in windy conditions. The weather can change quickly and the wind may carry embers to other combustible material and start new fires. • Create a fireguard around the planned fire site by clearing away twigs, grass, leaves and other combustible material. • Never leave a fire unattended. • Make sure that your fire is fully extinguished and the ashes are cold to the touch before you leave the area for any length of time.

Gord Bamford taking the stage at Key City Theatre Submit ted

Gord Bamford’s seventh studio album “Tin Roof” was the winner of one of Canada’s most coveted awards recently, that being, Country Album of the Year. The album “Tin Roof” follows the Juno Nominated “Country Junkie” album and its #1 Billboard hit song, “When your Lips are so Close.” Other memorable Bamford hits include, the very catchy “Breakfast Beer”, “Postcard From Pasadena”, “Is it Friday Yet?”, “Leaning on a

Gord Bamford Lonesome Song”, Drinkin’ Buddy”, and “Must be a Woman”. Bamford stands as one of the most decorated artists in Canadian country music with an

impressive 24 CCMA awards to his credit, multi Juno nominations, and the only two time winner in Canada, of the CMA Global Country Artist award. It’s Bamford’s distinctive sound and songwriting ability though that really defines him as one of country music’s best neotraditional artists, and like so many others that have come before him, Bamford is not an overnight success. He has spent the better part of the last 20 years honing his craft,

nay-East MLA. “I’m glad to see the continuation of the RMI program this year as we are seeing more and more tourists frequenting the Elk Valley.” Through the Province’s RMI, Fernie has received a total of $3,140,650 since 2009 in funding toward projects including (but not limited to): recreation trail development, cultural and heritage tourism events and festivals, museum and information centre improvements, downtown beatification, boat launch reconstruction, visitor signage and a winter ski shuttle.

working to get where he is today. His humble, likable approach is what continues to draw legions of both new and old fans to his concerts. But it’s his music that keeps them loyal. Gord
