City Council delays brick building breakdownCity to allow group in favour of preserving building time to look at options

demolition until June 21.A few weeks ago, council

voted to have the building taken down. The city had a professional engineer look at it and estimate repairs at $135,000, which would only make the building structur-ally sound and not yet suit-able for use.

At Monday night’s meet-ing, Coun. Gerry Warner ar-gued that the city should put

more emphasis on preserv-ing buildings like this one.

“This city does not have a good reputation when it comes to protecting its heri-tage values and here I’m surrounded by a group of people that aren’t prepared to give this building a sec-ond chance,” Warner said.

He suggested setting a timeline for a group that has come forward with an inter-

“I think we’re really fail-ing the people of Cranbrook if we do this,” he said. “We’ve had a lot of public com-

ments, all in the favour of preservation.

“Can’t we show a little vision and leadership here and save one of our last pieces of brick heritage in this city.”

Mayor Wayne Stetski said the challenge is that resi-dents didn’t know what was going to happen to the building prior to council passing the motion.

“I’d like to give some time for discussion to occur between staff and this group around the actual costs and give them some time to come up with some fund-ing,” Stetski said. “First and foremost we are public ser-vants and we serve the pub-lic.

The Justice Theatre is presenting free one hour performances in Cranbrook at the Cran-brook Public Library, in the atrium, at 6 pm Monday May 13th and in Kimberley at Centre 64 at 10:30 am Tuesday May 14th.

This is courtesy of the Columbia Basin Alli-ance for Literacy as part of their Welcoming Communities initiative. It is a creative way of in-troducing immigrants and the general public to the way our system of law works. CBAL has re-cently opened an immi-grant welcome centre at the Kimberley Public

Library and in July will open a similar office in Cranbrook. This is made possible through fund-ing from the Federal Government of Canada and the Government of British Columbia.

Justice Theatre is a presentation of the Peo-ples Law School of Van-couver. The perfor-mance will connect Canada’s justice system to the lives of audience members by making its principles more under-standable and by demonstrating that the law is there to help peo-ple who are victims of crime.

A r n e P e t rys h e nTownsman Staff

A bylaw that would regulate shipping con-tainers saw some ada-mant opposition Mon-day night as it stood before council for third reading.

Business owners un-happy with the way the bylaw is laid out and worried that it will af-fect their business model persuaded council to postpone third reading and adoption until June 10. Mayor Wayne Stetski hoped that would be enough time for the concerned business owners to speak with city administration about the concerns.

Kenny Bridge, from Bridge Interiors, said that after talking to the fire chief and deputy fire chief and reading the bylaw, he found that he wouldn’t be able to house a con-tainer on his property because of the required setbacks. He said that venting the container properly would cut down on any explosion hazards and would allow the containers to be placed closer to ex-isting buildings.

“From what I see the city staff have kind of put the cart in front of the horse,” Bridge said.

Another issue was that, in the current bylaw, sea cans won’t be allowed on residen-tial properties, Bridge said a container can look as good as any gar-den shed.

Later in the public input, Miles Chisholm from Freightliners of Cranbrook, a company that specializes in the containers, noted that most people think of the large industrial size of container, but in fact the containers come in all sorts of sizes. For in-stance a residential building could use a smaller eight-by-eight foot or eight-by-ten foot container.

“I think everyone has an image of an old

rusted out box sitting on the side of some in-dustrial park where they’re crushing cars,” he said. “That’s not the case.”

Chisholm’s compa-ny is an agent for Big Steel Blocks, a compa-ny which he said sup-plies quality containers that most of the time match the look of its surroundings. They deal with higher end sea cans, like the ones in the Lordco stock-yard.

“They’re very clean and arguably look as good as most garages in town,” he said.

Chisholm also noted that the company has probably delivered 500 containers to residen-tial addresses in Cran-brook in the past ten years. He said he is only aware of two com-plaints, though they were regarding low-er-quality auction style containers. In the area, including commercial, he said he’d probably delivered 3,000 con-tainers in that time.

“They come paint-ed, they’re clean, they’re not rusty, they’re airtight,” he said. “To be honest, if I had a million dollar home in Southview, it wouldn’t bother me one bit if my neighbour had a nice eight-by-eight sea can sitting be-side his boat.”

Coun. Denise Pallesen admitted that council had put the bylaw together with the common large ship-ping container in mind, and said maybe council needs to seek some more knowledge on the subject.

Other businesses, like KC gifts, said they would not be able to operate under the cur-rent proposed bylaw, since they have 30 sea cans on the property at a time.

Mayor Stetski made a motion to postpone third reading to June 10 and all members of council were in favour.

Congratulations to Rachael Ross, the winner of the Earth Day Art Contest at Top Crop Garden, Farm & Pet. Jen Ramsay (right) of Top Crop is pictured presenting with her garden prize package as well as a $100 gift card for an earth-friendly project at her school, Kootenay Christian Academy. Some suggestions Rachael had for keeping our earth clean and healthy were plant-ing a garden, composting, planting trees and recycling. Runner-up prizes, including a prize package and $25 for the school, went to students from Gordon Terrace and Steeples Elementary School. Top Crop also had entries from T.M. Roberts and Highlands Elementary School – overall there were close to 150 pieces of artwork entered by the students with great ideas how we can all help look after our planet. A big thanks to all the young artists.


After 22 years of serving as pastor of Knox Presbyterian Church in Cranbrook, Dr. Ron Foubister is stepping away from his pulpit and transi-tioning into a new chapter in his life. Though he hesitates to call it retire-ment, Dr. Foubister and his wife, Alice, plan to remain with the congrega-tion at Knox, along with the Cranbrook community. Pictured above, Dr. Foubister, and his wife, cut the cake during a celebration at Knox on Saturday evening, May 4.

Coun. Denise Pallesen said that council and had put time and effort into this already. She went as far as saying she resented the statements by Coun. Warner about the city’s building inspector.

“I just think we’ve made a decision on this and I’m sorry this group is coming in late,” Pallesen said. “We made the decision to the best of our abilities and we looked at all the information pre-sented to us by our qualified staff. I think the de-cision has been made and we need to stick with it. If this group wants to do something with the bricks then that’s fine, but I just can’t see spend-ing more taxpayers dollars on it.”

Warner said that even if it is $135,000 it’s worth it to spend that money.

“Maybe this group can raise $135,000, maybe they can raise more and we can develop it into something the city can be proud of,” he said. “What’s wrong with that? But if we knock it down now, that’s it.”

Coun. Dianne Scott said council does care about the city’s heritage.

“It’s all a tough balancing act,” she said.Council voted in favour of delaying doing any-

thing with the building until June 21 to allow the group in favour of preserving the building to have a meet with city staff and come to council as a delegation if they choose. Councillors Warner, Sharon Cross, Bob Whetham and Mayor Stetski voted in favour, while Pallesen, Scott and Angus Davis voted against.

Advance polls open Wednesday to Saturday across B.C., and Elec-tions BC is working on getting more people to vote early.

Elections BC sur-veyed voters after the 2009 election, which saw overall turnout fall to a record low 51 per cent of eligible voters. The most common reason given for not voting was being too busy on election day, set for Tuesday, May 14.

All 85 constituencies have advance polling lo-cations open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day from May 8 to May 11. With hours of operation ex-tended in recent years, 17.5 per cent of 2009 votes were cast in ad-vance polls.

In Cranbrook, the ad-vance polling location is at the Eagles Hall on Kootenay Street.

Elections BC has ex-perimented with new options for this vote, in-cluding an advance poll

at Kelowna Airport. The Comox Elections BC of-fice, in a former car deal-ership with drive-through bays, set up a drive-through advance poll.

“We know voters are busy and we look for in-novative ways to make the provincial electoral process effective, effi-cient and accessible,” said Chief Electoral Offi-cer Keith Archer.

Political parties have recognized the value of advance voting as well.

Advance polls open this week

Better Off With Bill

BY K aitY BrownBulletin/Townsman

Kimberley’s Air Cadet Squadron cele-brated their 70th Annual Review at the Curling Rink by the Civic Centre Saturday,

May 4. The event featured reviewing officers and commanders conduct-

ing a formal inspection of the ca-dets in uniform.

The demonstration showed the diligence of the cadets; their meticulous marches and proto-col stances. All the cadets proved very professional and trained. Awards were given out

to students who showed excep-tional skill and determination to

the 266 Kimberley Air Cadet Squadron.

“The interesting thing about

Kimberley was that right off the get go the mothers in Kimberley got together. That was the first sponsoring committee in Kimberley, which is very different in most cases in the country as far as history,” said Mr. Chris Van Moll, the master of ceremo-nies for the event.

“The mothers got together, as the first sponsoring group, in order to bring the Air Cadet Squadron here as the Second World War had started and the thought that this was a good way to protect their children by putting them into the air force rather than putting them into the army.”

The 70th year is a significant achieve-ment for the cadets, proving that the pro-gram is still going strong. And even 70 years later, after the parent involvement that sparked the Air Cadets in the first place, parent participation still a core part

The Kimberley Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron held their 70th Annual Review Saturday, May 4.

of the cadets today — an initiative for “the betterment and protection of our children” as described by Van Moll.

The cadets have the opportunity to learn a number of very interesting skills and talents which some showcased after the review such as riffle safety and other important protocols. One LAC, Leading Air Cadet Chorney, built a model airport which he said was inspired by the Cran-brook airport, but of his own design, which he showed to attendees of this year’s re-view.

Not only do the students learn about the skills particular to Royal Canadian Air Ca-dets, but they also learn about diligence, respecting others and how to be good citi-zens in their own communities.

Among the guests of honor at the event were Mayor Ron McRae, RCMP officer Pat Prefontaine and Fire Chief Al Collinson. Proud parents attended the events as well, supporting their children as parents have done for the cadets since 70 years ago.

Residents are en-couraged to exercise both caution and com-mon sense this spring, as the fawning season approaches for deer, ac-cording to the City of Cranbrook

Late May through June is the time of year does give birth to their fawns. Does will drive away their offspring from the previous year and look for a secluded place to give birth.

Deer have one or two fawns per year, and trip-lets do occur once in a while.

The white-spotted fawn relies on its color-ation, lack of scent and silence for protection.

It is quite common for does to leave fawns hidden while they forage in the area, returning oc-casionally to nurse. If you come across a fawn, it is best to leave it alone.

It is also important for residents to remem-ber that does with fawns can be quite aggressive.

“Please do not ap-proach deer or their fawns,” said Mayor Wayne Stetski. “Does may have their fawns in secluded backyards, so property owners should be vigilant. If your pres-ence creates a response from the deer, like a change in stance, ear position or physical movement, you are too close.”

Give the deer plenty of space to either move or leave the area. Do not walk closer to the deer, choose another route. Be sure to walk your dog on a leash and be ready to let go of the leash if a deer attacks.

Any acts of deer ag-gression where public safety is at risk should be reported. The City of Cranbrook and the pro-vincial Conservation Of-ficer Service each keep track of these instances of aggression.

To report an incident to the Conservation Offi-cer Service, please call 1-877-952-7277. To re-port an incident to the City of Cranbrook, please call 250-426-4211 or email [email protected].

The City of Cran-brook has an informa-tion brochure, “Living with Urban Deer”, which is available for pick up at City Hall or by down-loading a copy from the City’s website –

“After all is said and done, more is said than done.”


“A little inaccuracy sometimes saves tons of explanations.”

H.H. Munro

Over the years several demented peo-ple, folk who keep popping out at me like demented cuckoo clocks —

especially my next-door neighbour — have hinted that I should be running for office. They think I’d be a good politician.

As a matter of fact, I did once during my less-than-illustrious career idly fancy becoming a poli-tician; it looked a lot easier than working, but fortunately for all concerned, I shied away. I haven’t owned a suit since my wed-ding sixty-plus years ago and I jettisoned all of my ties when a certain school princi-pal ordered me to wear one in class.

Having been a school teacher, I could have been a great dictator like Mussolini, John A. Macdonald, and the present Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, but I found out that I’d have to sit in meetings (in the Cau-casus) and listen to the ravings of other idiots. That would have gone against the grain. I’m not good at meetings and have successfully slept through those I was forced to attend.

I’ve been around for aeons and there-fore accumulated a vast wealth of experi-ence but, in the meantime, forgotten what it was. I therefore don’t have much to offer.

And the folk that pester me around election time don’t have a clue as to what goes on after an election. I shall never for-get the retired politician who told me that, when she was elected to office, she found it impossible to do any of the things that her party had instructed her to promise to the

electors because the bu-reaucracy told her to forget all that nonsense, and so she sat around in creative inertia.

One of the many things that rattle my chain is the way that governments waste (mismanage) my

money. Take those tin-can fast ferries and those proposed new arctic patrol ships that Norwegians could build for far less money — probably out of sardine cans.

But there, I mustn’t get into the critical stage. How do you criticize a circus full of clowns?

My Uncle Charlie once took me and my sister to see a circus. It was quite a show but Charlie couldn’t help chortling over the actions of the clown. “The wa’er come right outer ‘is head,” he told my mother several times and now, when I watch poli-ticians in action, I think of that clown, but he wasn’t pretending to be serious.

As A.H.Glasgow once wrote, ‘Any idea

not coupled with action will never get big-ger than the brain cell it once occupied.’ So, when I have those e-mails all year from perfectly pleasant people whose biases that sound as if they’d been written by Adolf Hitler himself at his maddest mo-ments, I don’t get perturbed too much. They’re so right wing they’re off the charts and they therefore must have very small brain cells.

Then there are those who want politi-cians to do the ‘right’ thing by everybody but, as every wife and mother knows, ‘It ain’t gonna happen’.

Maybe, just maybe, we could persuade some of these foreign workers to run for office. They’d probably be good at it. I can’t organize the chaos of my own life.

No, what we need is an all-knowing force to run the province and the country. Google comes to mind so don’t bug me any more, please. You see, I’m a cantanker-ous curmudgeon and what really worries me is that I might begin to show an interest in politics and maybe even run for office. And what if the great unwashed decided, just for a laugh, to vote for me and I found myself in office instead of the loony bin? There would go my very necessary beauty sleep and there would go the country, probably up in flames. It’s a scary thought, isn’t it?

Two bantam players with the Cranbrook Oultaws lacrosse team have made the cut for Team Interior, a squad consisting of players from the B.C. Interior that have a chance to make a provincial ros-ter.

Conor Sinclair and Kole Tait cracked the roster during a camp in Armstrong at the end of April, as 30 athletes struggled to make the cut for a roster that in-cluded 15 spots.

“Very hard, very se-rious. They made you do a lot of high-end drills,” said Sinclair. “Catching was proba-bly the most important part, quick stick, shots, a c c u r a c y — p u t t i n g them on net and not hitting the goalie in the head.”

Following their ex-perience over the course of the camp, each athlete was hauled into one-on-one meetings with the coaches to go over their tryout and find out if they had the chops to make it onto the roster.

“They brought you

in to interview you, they asked some ques-tions, asked what you think you need to work on, how good you did, then they tell you if you made it,” said Sinclair, who added he was pumped to make the cut.

He said his intensity was the biggest aspect of his game that he wanted to use to im-press the coaches.

“Probably the inten-sity I want to play with—hard on defence, hard on offence, always running my hardest,” said Sinclair.

Tait said he came into camp feeling pret-ty confident in his abil-ities, but an equipment malfunction nearly

threw him off his game. “I blew up my stick,

during a drill, so I kinda had a heart attack there, because I had to switch to my bad stick and I have trouble playing with it,” Tait said.

However, he said hard work was the key to getting noticed.

“Overall, it was a real good camp, hard work, there was a point where I was sweating so much I could hardly see out of my eyes,” Tait said.

Tait said he wanted to prove he belonged on the squad by play-ing physical and being smart positionally.

“Being solid, saving the balls, getting out, being big and stick work,” Tait added.

The two will join up with Team Interior for a tournament in the Lower Mainland this weekend featuring other regional teams from around the prov-ince.

Players on all the re-gional teams will be scouted and selected based on their merit to the provincial Team B.C. roster.

STOCKHOLM, Sweden - Ste-ven Stamkos had a goal and three assists to pace Canada to a 7-1 win over Norway at the IIHF World Championship on Tues-day.

Canada (2-0-1) played its best first period of the tourna-ment so far and led by four goals after the opening 20 minutes.

Taylor Hall had two goals with Andrew Ladd, Matt Duchene, Jeff Skinner and Claude Giroux also scoring for Canada. Jordan Eberle had two assists.

Edmonton Oilers goaltender Devan Dubnyk made 13 saves for his second win of the tourna-ment.

Canada was second in the Stockholm pool with seven

points. Switzerland led with eight.

Canada faces back-to-back games against host Sweden (2-1) on Thursday followed by Belarus (1-2) on Friday. Den-mark (1-2) edged winless Slove-nia 3-2 in overtime in an earlier game.

Russia (3-0) downed the United States 5-3 to top the Hel-sinki pool. Promoted Austria doubled Latvia 6-3 for their first win. The Latvians (0-3) are coached by Canadian and for-mer Buffalo Sabres head coach Ted Nolan.

The top four countries in each pool of eight qualify for the quarter-finals in their respective cities. Canada lost in the quar-ter-finals in the last three world championships, despite finish-ing first in their pool the last two.

Norway (2-1) gave goaltender Lars Volden his first start of the tournament after Lars Haugen earned a pair of wins. Ken Andre Olimb scored in Norway’s first loss of the tournament.

The Norwegians are ranked No. 8 in the world behind Cana-da at No. 5. The two countries will be in the same pool at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, next year along with Fin-land and Austria.

Canada’s 22 players had just three practices together as a team prior to their first game here. The NHL’s lockout-short-ened regular season ended three weeks later than usual.

The Canadians had sluggish first periods and trailed by a goal in both a 3-1 win over Denmark and a 3-2 shootout loss to Swit-zerland to open the tournament.

NHL Playoffs: Sharks complete the sweep, topple Canucks in OTAssociAted Press


SAN JOSE, Calif. - Patrick Marleau scored a power-play goal 13:18 into overtime and the San Jose Sharks com-pleted their first playoff sweep in franchise his-tory, beating the Van-couver Canucks 4-3 Tuesday night.

Joe Pavelski scored his second power-play goal of the game to tie it with 4:27 left in regula-tion. Brent Burns also scored for the Sharks, who will now get a break before beginning the second round of the playoffs next week.

Mason Raymond, Alex Burrows and Alex-

ander Edler scored for the Canucks, who were unable to hold onto a late third-period lead for the second time this series.

Cory Schneider made big stops early in the overtime, but gave up the rebound that led to Marleau’s se-ries-clinching goal.

With Daniel Sedin sent off for boarding Tommy Wingels, the Sharks came through with their third pow-er-play goal of the night to win it. Joe Thornton’s shot hit off Schneider and the puck was bouncing in the crease when Marleau just got his stick on it to score the winner, setting off a wild celebration at the Shark Tank and sending

Vancouver to another early playoff exit.

The Canucks have lost 10 of their past 11 playoff games to raise major questions about the future of a franchise that made it to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals just two years ago.


UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) - John Tavares scored with 9:49 left, and New York tied its first-round series with Pittsburgh with a wild victory.

Only the final lead was safe in Game 4.

Tavares slammed in his own rebound in front after Brad Boyes fed him following a

turnover by Penguins star Evgeni Malkin. It was the Islanders’ third one-goal advantage in the game and the one that earned them a 2-2 tie in the highly enter-taining series that has featured 5-4 and 6-4 fin-ishes at Nassau Colise-um.

Tavares was serenad-ed with cheers of “M-V-P” from the frantic crowd that is believing an upset is possible. Casey Cizikas shoved in a shot with 1:16 left to add some much-need-ed insurance.

Captain Mark Streit scored twice, and Brian Strait and Kyle Okposo also had goals, and Ev-geni Nabokov made 27 saves for the eighth-seeded Island-

ers.Game 5 is Thursday

in Pittsburgh.


OTTAWA (AP) - Kyle Turris scored 2:32 into overtime, lifting the Senators into a 3-1 lead. Turris’ shot from the sideboards sneaked past Montreal backup goalie Peter Budaj, who came on for the injured Carey Price at the start of overtime.

Cory Conacher scored with 22.6 sec-onds to go in regulation to force overtime. Mika Zibanejad had the other goal for the Senators, who got 26 saves from Craig Anderson.

P.K. Subban and Alex

Galchenyuk scored 62 seconds apart in the second period for Mon-treal. Price made 30 saves two nights after allowing all six goals in Ottawa’s 6-1 victory in Game 3. He was injured on Conacher’s tying goal late in the third pe-riod.

Game 5 goes Thurs-day night in Montreal in a series that has seen a little bit of everything.


ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Patrick Sharp scored two goals for Chicago, and the Blackhawks rat-cheted up their defence, putting the Wild on the brink of elimination.

Bryan Bickell also

scored and Corey Craw-ford made 25 saves for the Blackhawks, who built a 3-1 lead in this best-of-seven matchup.

The Wild had anoth-er goalie get hurt when Josh Harding’s injury forced Darcy Kuemper into action after the first intermission. Sharp scored on Chicago’s first shot at the rookie 62 sec-onds into the second period.

Minnesota, the only one of the 16 NHL play-off teams without a power-play goal this post-season, went scoreless in six man-ad-vantage situations and is 0 for 15 in the series. Game 5 is back in Chica-go on Thursday night.

Winterhawks beat Oil Kings to take lead in WHL final

cAnAdiAn PressEDMONTON - The

Portland Winterhawks earned a key road vic-tory in the Western Hockey League final.

Olivier Bjorkstrand and Taylor Leier each had a goal and an as-sist for Portland in a 3-1 win over the Ed-monton Oil Kings on Tuesday.

Ty Rattie also scored as the Winter-hawks took a 2-1 lead in the championship series after Portland had to settle for a split at home.

Michael St. Croix had the lone goal for Edmonton.

“I thought it was a good effort by our team,” said Portland Winterhawks head coach Travis Green. “It was a good road win. Obviously getting a lead like that is im-portant against a team like (Edmonton). They came hard and we weathered the storm a bit and our veteran guys were really good.

“We don’t dwell on big wins or big losses. We still have to come to the rink the next game and put a good effort out on the ice, and hop eful ly (Wednesday) we can have another solid ef-fort.”

Portland opened the scoring at 4:39 of the first after Bjork-strand eluded Edmon-ton defender Keegan Lowe along the out-

side to set up the feed in front to a wide-open Leier.

Rattie doubled the Winterhawks lead with his 17th of the post-season, finishing off an odd-man rush with Nicolas Petan with a wrist shot through Laurent Bros-soit’s five-hole at 8:14 of the opening period.

Bjorkstrand sent Portland into the sec-ond period with a 3-0 lead after tucking a backhand up high from in tight at 15:48 into the blocker cor-ner.

“Obviously if we could take that first pe-riod and throw it out the window, we’d be in the game a bit more,” said Edmonton head coach Derek Laxdal. “We didn’t come out with a lot of urgency. Second and third peri-od we got it going a bit.

But we can’t spot Port-land a lead like we have. They’re too good of a hockey club.

“From the time you get into the arena, you have to be ready to play. These guys know how to respond, they have all year.”

St. Croix put Ed-monton on the board at 9:13 of the second, burying a cross-crease feed from Dylan Wruck in behind Portland netminder Mac Car-ruth.

Edmonton nearly made it a one-goal game just moments later as Curtis Lazar broke in alone, but Carruth stretched out with the right pad to keep the Winterhawks ahead 3-1 heading into what would be a score-less third period.

“We have to get more pucks through and we have to be ready when they do get through,” added Ed-monton winger T.J. Foster. “We had a cou-ple chances on re-bounds where we didn’t bury it. He takes away the lower half, we have to get it upstairs.”

Carruth stopped 38 shots in net for Port-land, while Brossoit turned aside 24 pucks for Edmonton.

Neither team struck on the power play as Portland held four op-portunities with the man advantage and Edmonton earned one.

Iman Shumpert added 15 points, includ-ing a sensational follow dunk in the first half, and Raymond Felton scored 14 as the Knicks turned a close game into a blowout over the final 15 minutes.

Paul George scored 20 points for the Pacers, who had a two-point

lead and momentum when coach Frank Vogel called timeout with a little more than 3 minutes left in the third quarter.

By the time the Pac-ers got on the board in the final period, the Knicks had opened a 26-point advantage.

Game 3 is Saturday at Indianapolis.

David West scored 13 points for the Pacers, who committed 21 turnovers that led to 32 points, negating their height advantage that loomed so large in their Game 1 victory.


OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Mike Conley

scored 26 points, Marc Gasol added 24 points and Memphis used a late run to beat Oklaho-ma City and even the Western Conference semifinals at one game.

Conley hit a 3-point-er from the left wing with 1:58 left to put the Grizzlies ahead to stay and spark a string of 10 straight points for the Grizzlies.

He added an 18-foot jumper to stretch the lead to 94-90, then hit one of two free throws with 29.4 seconds left.

After hitting the key baskets in Game 1, Kevin Durant couldn’t provide an answer for the Thunder. He missed his last three shots, in-cluding a pair of 3-point attempts, and finished

with 36 points, 11 re-bounds and nine as-sists.

The Thunder caught a break when Tony Allen tipped the ball away and Conley saved it from going out of bounds, only for it to end up in Durant’s hands in the corner. But Durant was off-target on a 3-pointer, and Oklahoma City was forced to foul.

Zach Randolph tacked on two free throws, and Allen then stole the ball from Du-rant and provided the finishing touches with a dunk. Derek Fisher hit a 3-pointer at the final buzzer for Oklahoma City.

Game 3 is Saturday in Memphis.

NBA Playoffs: Knicks, Grizzlies even series

“It was a good road win. Obviously

getting a lead like that is important

against a team like (Edmonton). They came hard and we

weathered the storm a bit and our veteran

guys were really good.”

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Your imagination plays out with a financial decision. You could be wondering what to do, but if you relax or take a walk, you will know what to do. You might catch some negativity from someone whose opinions you value. Tonight: Do not feel as if you must do anything. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You’ll wake up knowing what you would like to do. Emphasize your priorities. What you need from a certain someone is more acceptance, but you are likely to receive the opposite. Under-standing evolves between the two of you, as long as you don’t act out. Tonight: All smiles. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You might want to think through what you are willing to do in a certain situation. Your ability to move forward could be affected by your mood and energy right now. Do not allow someone’s negativity to filter in. Try to maintain an upbeat atti-tude. Tonight: Play it low-key.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Zero in on what is important. Listen to a suggestion from oth-ers; your friends mean well. Your creativity and a brainstorming session might not be as fruitful as a clear-cut suggestion from a friend could be. Do not al-low pressure to build. Tonight: Where the action is. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You suddenly might realize that you have more going on than you originally thought. Pressure builds as a result. Have a discus-sion with someone you trust. You might want this person to pitch in more. You could be overtired or stretched too thin. Tonight: Make it early. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Keep reaching out for more information. A partner can sense that you are looking for something new, and he or she will help you. Communication could be active. Listen and open up. This process is good for you. Tonight: Detach in order to find the answer to a problem. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You might want to consider

making a change or doing something very differently. A key partner is far more conser-vative than you thought. Use care with your finances, as you could be pushed to meet many different demands. Think twice before spending. Tonight: Pay bills. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You’ll find that others are seek-ing you out, specifically a friend or a group of friends. You might want to head in a different direc-tion. Others see you as negative, but you see yourself as someone who makes strong choices. To-night: Let others do what they want. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Listen to news that is forthcom-ing. You are going to have to take action and head in a new direction. You have a lot of feel-ings regarding an investment or piece of real estate. You could have a lot going on right now and feel out of sorts on some level. Tonight: Say “yes.” CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Someone’s plan might not have been logically thought out. As a

result, a friend could retreat into his or her cocoon. You need to let this person decide when he or she wants to open up. Push-ing ultimately will not work. Tonight: Add some fun and ad-venture to the mix. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You might want to rethink a decision more carefully. Do not agree to anything unless you are sure of the fine print and impli-cations involved with a financial agreement; otherwise, there easily could be a last-minute problem. Tonight: Be wherever your friends are. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Take news with a grain of salt. Open up to a change, but do not be surprised by mounting negativity. Unfortunately, you could get less-than-desirable feedback no matter what you do. You know where you are coming from. Tonight: Catch up on a friend’s news. BORN TODAY Former U.S. president Harry S. Truman (1884), actor David Keith (1954), singer Enrique Ig-lesias (1975)

Dear Annie: My grandfather passed away last month, and the wake was catered by a close friend of the family who owns a restau-rant. He closed off a section of his dining hall for our family. The meal included 15 children under the age of 10, and they were absolute monsters. My nephew threw his shoe across the room and then tripped a waitress. These kids crawled under the tables, poking us with forks and smearing food into the carpet. My cousin’s 8-year-old daughter put open condiment packets in my purse and a baked potato in my mother’s coat pocket and then mashed it into the fabric. People from the other area of the restau-rant complained after my nephew threw food at them. My husband and I left, leaving a large tip for the servers. Other relatives did the same. The dining room was an utter di-saster. Before we left town the next morning, my husband and I stopped by the restaurant and left additional money for the inconve-nience of cleaning food out of the carpet. My grandmother asked the owner for a full bill of the damage and presented it to those children whose offspring made the mess. It started a huge family row, and of course, no-body is taking responsibility for their kids. I’ve never seen such appalling behavior, and I doubt my grandfather would have ap-preciated such disrespect. My husband and I are tempted to send the restaurant owner an anonymous money order because we doubt he will otherwise be compensated. My parents are supposed to have their 50th anniversary party at this restaurant next month, and the guest list is almost identi-cal. They’re too embarrassed to go, but don’t want to lose their deposit. Should I send the money order? Whatever happened to man-ners? -- Shocked Granddaughter Dear Shocked: They apparently got stuck with the mashed potatoes. What terrible be-havior from the parents who allowed their children to run amok. And they do their children a disservice by making them un-welcome everywhere. We think your parents should go ahead with their plans to celebrate at that restau-rant but issue invitations only to the adults. Children who are too immature to behave in public and whose parents refuse to con-trol them should not be included in these events. We suspect your parents paid the cleaning bill, so instead of “donating” mon-ey to the restaurant, you might consider do-ing something special on your folks’ behalf. Dear Annie: Every time I look in the papers, I see articles about wars, death, etc., but nev-er about the homeless, especially homeless children and runaways. Why is that? These children are our future. There seems to be money for everything from new jails to fixing swimming pools, but not a word about mon-ey for the homeless. Why? -- Frustrated Dear Frustrated: In the news business, death “sells.” Runaways, not so much. But there are articles on the homeless if you look, and shelters are funded through feder-al, state and city government allocations, as well as by private philanthropy. You sound like a kind person. Please look for a shelter in your area and volunteer your time. It would be much appreciated. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Cal in Maine,” who complained that his grandchil-dren rarely communicate with him. I have reread and shared that letter many times. I totally agree with him, as my older grand-children seem to care little about keeping in touch. But I also now remember how little I cared about keeping in touch with my own grandparents 40 years ago. I guess what goes around comes around. -- Lois in Omaha Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

AssociAted Press

DUBLIN, Ireland — Ireland’s government is pardoning nearly 5,000 men who deserted its armed forces during World War II to fight for Britain against Nazi Ger-many and Japan.

Justice Minister Alan Shatter says a bill par-doning the men and apologizing to their fam-ilies is being introduced Tuesday into parliament and faces rapid passage.

Shatter says the ges-ture is long overdue be-cause nearly all the war veterans are already dead. He says it should remove ``any tarnish from their name or repu-tation.’’

The deserters were barred from Irish state employment and pen-sions at war’s end, re-ducing many of their families to poverty.

Ireland remained neutral and refused to accept Jewish refugees. Its prime minister, Eamon de Valera, was the only western leader to offer condolences to Germany following Hit-ler’s death in 1945.

Acting as your own lawyer daunting, frustratingcolin PerkelCanadian Press

TORONTO — Sty-mied by the high cost of hiring a lawyer, many Canadians are repre-senting themselves in court only to find the ex-perience frustrating,

overwhelming and more complex than they ex-pected, according to a study released Tuesday.

In fact, the study finds the ordeal of trying to navigate the legal system can take a profound emotional, financial and

even physical toll on self-represented liti-gants.

The 18-month re-search project looked at 259 self-represented liti-gants in Ontario, Alberta and B.C. — equally di-vided among men and

women.About 60 per cent

were family court liti-gants — many involved in divorce proceedings — while most others were litigants involved in various civil cases.

Slightly more than half started off with a lawyer before opting to represent themselves, often after paying out large sums.

While some said they were simply fed up with their legal representa-tion, most cited the steep

cost of retaining a lawyer — $350 to $400 an hour is not unusual — as the prime motivation for going solo.

``People aren’t doing this because they woke up one morning and thought, ‘I think I fancy myself as (TV lawyer) Perry Mason,’’ study au-thor Julie Macfarlane said in an interview.

``They’re doing it be-cause they cannot afford to pay a lawyer. This isn’t about choice: this is about necessity.’’

Macfarlane, a law professor at the Univer-sity of Windsor, said hers is the first study to look at s e l f - re p re s e n t a t i o n through the eyes of ``regular, hard-working ordinary folk’’ who end up in court and can’t af-ford a lawyer.

Macfarlane said she was surprised at the huge stress self-repre-sented litigants experi-ence, saying her re-search felt like grief counselling.

While legal resources

Ireland pardons

deserters who fought for Britain

in WW II

are increasingly avail-able online, the study finds they require some legal knowledge to be of use, and may not be of much concrete help.

Simply finding and filling out the right forms — even those offered on-line — proved a daunt-ing challenge to many, leading to mistakes and timewasting, as well as to added workload for court staff.

Respondents found court personnel often tried to be helpful but didn’t have enough time, or staff worried about being seen to offer legal advice.

The study proposes several recommenda-tions, key among them is recognizing that self-rep-resented litigants — by necessity — are now a permanent part of the justice system.

OTTAWA — Canada is pulling out of two in-ternational programs aimed at ensuring ex-So-viet scientists don’t end up working for terrorist groups.

The programs, one in Moscow and the other in the Ukraine, were set up in the early 1990s as a means to give weapons

experts a place to work following the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Canada has contrib-uted some $60 million to the two centres since 2004, funding more than 100 different projects.

But Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird says Canada is now focusing its funding on combat-ing existing weapons of

mass destruction and the post-Cold War cen-tres are no longer re-quired.

Canada’s decision to leave likely signals the collapse of the program in Moscow, which has been expected to close since Russia announced in 2010 it would with-draw.

NAIROBI, Kenya — More than 1 million ba-bies die the day they are born every year, accord-ing to a new report re-leased Tuesday, and the 14 countries with the highest rates of first-day deaths are all in Africa.

Somalia, Congo, Mali, Sierra Leone and Central African Republic are the five countries with the highest rates of first-day deaths, according to the report “Surviving the First Day’’ from the aid group Save the Children.

“Health care for mothers in sub-Saharan Africa is woefully insuffi-cient. On average, only half the women in the region receive skilled care during birth,’’ the re-port said. “The region as a whole has only 11 doc-tors, nurses and mid-wives per 10,000 people, less than half the critical threshold of 23 generally considered necessary to deliver essential health services.’’

The numbers in So-malia — a country wracked by 20 years of violence with little estab-lished government and few health services — are particularly grim. Eighteen out of 1,000 ba-bies in Somalia die the day they are born, the report said. Five per cent of newborns die within the first month of life and one in six won’t live to age five, it said.

“What’s worse, So-malia has seen absolute-ly no improvement in newborn or child surviv-al in at least two de-cades,’’ it said. Somali women have on average more than six children, the second-highest fer-tility rate in the world.

Pre-birth care to ex-pectant mothers is large-ly not available in Soma-lia, said Dr. Omar Saleh, a World Health Organi-zation official who fre-quently travels to health facilities in rural Soma-lia.

“And then the natal care itself, which is deliv-ery, some of the ob-structed labours are de-layed due to the long distances to medical care or insecurity or high prices of transport,’’ Saleh said. “And then

TORONTO — A newly identified species of dome-headed dino-saur roughly the size of a large dog once roamed the plains of southern Alberta, a team of Cana-dian scientists an-nounced Tuesday.

The discovery of the Acrotholus Audeti touched off further in-vestigation that suggest-ed the world’s dinosaur population was more diverse than once be-lieved.

Details of the study were published Tuesday in the journal Nature Communications.

Study lead author David Evans, curator of vertebrate paleontology at the Royal Ontario Mu-seum, said Acrotholus’ comparatively diminu-tive size belies its scien-tific importance.

The two-legged plant-eater stood no higher than an adult hu-man’s knee and weighed only 40 kilograms, mea-surements similar to a German shepherd or other large-breed ca-nine.

Evans, however, said the animal has become an important puzzle piece for those commit-ted to mapping out the rise and fall of the dino-saur.

“We actually don’t have a very good record of dinosaurs from North America, or even the world, as a whole through this interval … around 85 million years ago,’’ Evans said in a tele-phone interview. “So we went to the areas that exposed the sediments trying to find the fossils that would help fill in that gap in our knowl-edge.’’

Researchers were guided in their quest by an early discovery made by museum staff in the late 1940s, Evans said. Researchers unearthed a partial fossil of a dino-saur featuring a thick dome of solid bone over its eyes in the Milk River formation of southern Alberta, but found the sample had deteriorated too far to be of much use.

Present-day re-searchers had better luck in 2008 when they came across a nearly perfectly preserved fos-sil on the land of a south-ern Alberta cattle ranch-er.

Evans said he was stunned to discover an intact specimen, ex-plaining scientists are rarely afforded the chance to study smaller dinosaur skeletons.

“The species repre-sentation of small ani-mals is generally poorer than large animals be-cause the bones of small ones are more suscepti-ble to carnivores and weathering processes,’’ he said. “The bones of small animals tend to get destroyed before they enter the fossil re-

cord.’’The skeletal charac-

teristic that helped pre-serve the fossil was ulti-mately the one that gave the species its name. Acrotholus is derived from the Greek words for “high dome’’ and de-scribe the 10-centimetre bone mass on the ani-mal’s head.

The distinctive skull formation, which places Acrotholus within a group of dinosaurs known as pachycepha-losaurs, also opened the door to a wider investi-gation of dinosaur diver-

sity, Evans said.He and his team ex-

amined all 600 of the pachycephalosaur spec-imens discovered to date in order to deter-mine how many subspe-cies there were within that group. The team concluded there were at least 16 varieties of ani-mals featuring the dis-tinctive dome, including acrotholus.

Evans said the find-ings challenge stereo-typical images of dino-saurs as mammoth crea-tures running rough-shod over all smaller

species. The study of p a c h y c e p h a l o s a u r s alone, he said, suggests the dinosaur population was more diverse and complex than conven-tional wisdom suggests.

“The only reason we know that pachycepha-losaurs were so diverse is because of these domes which seem to be preferentially preserved in the fossil record,’’ he said. “And so if other di-nosaur groups are any-thing like pachycepha-losaurs, they were prob-ably a lot more diverse too.”

Africa is riskiest place to be born1 million babies die on day of birth globally, new report says

after delivery the main thing is the availability of incubators. And the whole science of neo-na-tal care is a huge science that is not well devel-oped in Somalia.’’

In terms of absolute numbers, the most first-day deaths occur in India — more than 300,000 per year, the report said. Nigeria has nearly 90,000 per year.

Improvements in ac-cess to contraceptives, maternal nutrition and breastfeeding practices will save more lives, Me-linda Gates, of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, wrote in a forward to the report.

“Saving newborn lives will prevent incal-culable suffering. It is also a vital piece of the global development agenda. The long-term economic prospects of poor countries depend on investments in the health, nutrition and ed-ucation of the people, particularly the women and young children liv-ing there,’’ Gates wrote.

Nearly all of newborn deaths — 98 per cent — occur in developing countries, a statistic that underlines a widening gap between the health of the world’s rich and poor, the report says.

“A mother in sub-Sa-haran Africa, for exam-ple, is 30 times more likely than a mother in an industrialized coun-try to lose a newborn baby at some point in her life,’’ the report con-cluded. “On average, one in six African mothers is likely to lose a newborn baby, a commonplace but largely untold tale of grief.’’

OTTAWA — Along with reduced pensions, low re-turns on their savings and high debt, Canada’s boomer generation is facing an addi-tional burden as they ease into their retirement years — their “boomerang kids.’’

A report from TD Canada Trust suggests boomers are taking on more of the re-sponsibility for their adult children struggling to attain financial self-sufficiency in

the post-recession years of high youth unemployment and low wage gains.

The report, based on an online survey by Environics Research, shows a majority of boomers have stepped up to help support their adult children, and that as many as one-in-five say they would be prepared to put their own financial security at risk to help out.

The number one way of helping out is providing free room and board, but also

contributing to major pur-chases like cars or comput-ers, helping pay for rent and groceries and of course, pay-ing off credit card bills.

“Today high youth unem-ployment, increasing post-secondary education costs and high property pric-es means many young peo-ple are more likely to rely fi-nancially on their parents well into adulthood,’’ said John Tracy, senior vice-pres-ident of TD Canada Trust of the results.

But Tracy warns boomers there is a risk of doing too much, particularly if it jeop-ardizes retirement plans.

Other studies have noted that with more than 60 per cent of Canadians not having a company pension plan to fall back on, many pre-retir-ees have not saved sufficient-ly to maintain anything re-sembling their current life-styles. Some have chosen to work beyond traditional re-tirement years to maintain their standard of living.

At the other end of the age spectrum, young Canadians remain the most affected by the 2008-09 recession and the subsequent weak recov-ery.

TD Bank economist Fran-cis Fong says poor econo-mies always hit the young the hardest and this time is no exception. The repercus-sions tend to go far beyond just high joblessness num-bers, he says.

And the longer the young are out of work, the harder it

will be for them to catch up. A British study calculates that a period of unemploy-ment ranging from seven to 12 months for workers in the 15-24 age group can, on av-erage, cause an 11 per cent wage loss by the age of 33, and 7.6 per cent loss by the age of 42.

The Environics survey did not indicate for how long boomers on average extend help to their adult children, but suggests the phenome-non is widespread.

High youth unemployment a burden also for boomer parents
