At work or First taste play, plan of new pool to keep your cool BY BRENDA KOSSOWAN ADVOCATE STAFF Any cat dancing on a hot tin roof this week should feel thankful that it doesn’t have to cope with hot tar as well. Mark Hunter, residential development manager for Cooper Roofing in Red Deer, said on Tuesday that his crews employ a variety of tactics to avoid overheating while they’re working under the hot sun. Typically, they shut down at about 30C. That’s not just for human health and safety, said Hunter. At that point, asphalt shingles become more vulnerable to damage. Heat conditions are amplified for crews working with hot tar on flat roofs, where temperatures can rise by five to 10 degrees above what the people on the ground below

are experiencing, said Hunter. Along with normal precautions, including making sure they are properly protected from the sun and well hydrated, roofers avoid the heat by staying out of it, he said. During the summer, it is not uncommon for roofers to start early in the morning — providing they are not in an area affected by a noise bylaw — and shut down when the sun starts to get hot. They’ll then come back in the evening as outdoor temperatures start to cool. Lisa Glover, a communications officer for Alberta Occupational Health and Safety, said the province’s Labour Code does not specifically address measures to ensure workers are safe and healthy.

Rimbey children couldn’t wait to beat the heat when the expanded Rimbey Aquatic Centre officially opened on Tuesday. Jaxon Pluigers obliged a request from Colton Soderburg for a cool shot from the water cannon while they waited for opening ceremonies to conclude. The aquatic centre includes an outdoor pool, waterslide, hot tubs and change room building. A leak in the pool delayed the opening, which was slated for June 15. The project to expand and upgrade the 45-year-old pool cost more than $3 million, which included money from the town, local fundraising and the federal government.

Residents not happy parking sacrificed to bike lane BY CRYSTAL RHYNO ADVOCATE STAFF

Not everyone in Red Deer is thrilled about the location of the new bike lanes. Some residents in North Red Deer, along 59th Avenue from 67th Street to Grant Street, are miffed because they will lose their street parking on 59th Avenue due to the bike lanes that will

be painted on both sides of the avenue later this summer. Jim Dawson, 70, a resident on 59th Avenue, said it would make more sense for the lanes to be installed along 67A Street to connect to Taylor Drive because the street is not as busy and would not have impacted residents. “Nobody parks on the street there,” said Dawson. “You wouldn’t have impacted on one residential house. You wouldn’t have impacted on anybody. But they choose ours. We’re losing

parking rights right in front of (our) houses.” As part of the Commuter Bike Pilot project, bike lanes will be completed by mid-August. Work should get underway in the next few days. There will be one lane going through the downtown, another heading west along Cronquist Drive, 39th Street heading east, north from the Ross Street area up to 59th Street and 40th Avenue from 39th Street up to and including 55th Street.

Vehicle lanes will be reduced from four to three lanes within those areas. The third lane will be a left-turn lane in either direction, so there would still be two continuous through movements. In the case of 39th Street, the four lanes will be reduced to mainly two lanes. Two left-hand turn bays will be installed at the intersection of 39th Street and 40th Avenue to help alleviate the traffic.

Year-round activity planned for Great Chief BY LAURA TESTER ADVOCATE STAFF The public will have a final chance to review a proposed concept plan for improving Red Deer’s premiere outdoor, multi-sport facility. City council set aside the Great Chief Park Enhancement Concept Plan and Outdoor Speed Skating Oval Relocation — Site Assessment until Aug. 20 so residents can provide input. The concept plan calls for $8.6-million worth of enhancements to the park that’s been around for more than 50 years. ISL Engineering and Land Services was contracted to gather input on how to improve the 41-acre park beside Bower Ponds and the Red Deer River. It looked at developing a concept plan for sports field-related activities at Great Chief Park, as well as determining a new location for the speedskating oval currently in Rotary Recreation Park. Randy Heaps, ISL senior landscape architect from Edmonton, said sports groups have hailed Great Chief as one of the best places to play in Alberta, but it’s older and needs upgrading. “What (this plan) does is really take a park that’s already serving a lot of stakeholders and user groups and it makes it better,” said Heaps. “There’s opportunities to add additional facili-

grades, as well as expansions. The Great Chief Park Enhancement Concept Plan also calls for the outdoor speed skating oval in Rotary Recreation Park to be relocated to Great Chief and developed as a 400-metre Olympic-style facility. This would require the removal and replacement of the hedge and fence along the south side of the field to accommodate the track. The oval would be placed on the synthetic turf field, which would have a liner placed on it so the ice doesn’t damage the surface below. The improvements are also meant to make Great Chief into a major festival site for the city. “The long-term development of the skating oval, football site and having that well connected to Bower Ponds really opens that up to events as well,” said Heaps. Heaps said the park operator is going to work with user groups on making short-term improvements to fence mesh and backstops. “When you start to look at all the bigger picture items and even some of the new facilities like batting cages, those are things that groups can raise money to build and to operate,” said Heaps. “So it’s not just about the new and glossy, but smaller things that can make an impact.”

Buses may carry passengers between Lacombe, Blackfalds, Red Deer BY CRYSTAL RHYNO ADVOCATE STAFF Buses may soon be on the road carrying passengers between Lacombe, Blackfalds and Red Deer. The wheels are in motion to bring an estimated $1.05-million regional transit system that would connect the two municipalities and Red Deer. The joint initiative between Lacombe and Blackfalds is hinging on obtaining two thirds of the funding from the Green Transit Incentives Program (GreenTrip), a provincial grant program that awards one-time capital funding to expand public transportation. The grant would cover the capital costs including the purchase of two 39-seat buses ($900,000) and infrastructure ($150,000) such as bus stops and shelters. The two municipalities would pay $175,000 each, the remaining capital cost. Once the buses are running, each municipally would be on the hook for a 50-

50 cost share, estimated at $150,000 to $175,000 annually. The City of Red Deer Transit Department would hire the drivers, maintain and house the buses at an estimated $100 an hour. Since three Greyhound bus routes in Central Alberta were chopped in October 2011, there has been no bus service to Lacombe, which is home to Canadian University College and Agriculture Financial Services Corporation (ASFC), the largest employer in Lacombe. “Approximately 40 people that work there still live in Red Deer,” said Lacombe Mayor Steve Christie. “It’s a little bit of a green initiative if they could ride the bus.” Seniors and those with special needs in the municipalities would also be able to take advantage of the public transportation. Christie said with the three municipalities, AFSC and CCU on board with the project they should have a good shot of receiving the grant. There would be eight stops in Lacombe, nine stops

in Blackfalds and at Sorensen Station in Red Deer. “It’s always been an important component of our social needs assessment,” said Corrine Newman, Blackfalds chief executive officer. “It’s important for seniors. It’s important for youth, for adults. It is seen to be a valuable service.” A few years ago, Blackfalds attempted to create a regional transit system alone but decided to park the project because of the costs involved in providing quality service. Newman said the new service would take cars off the road and free up parking spaces in the three municipalities. The second round of grant application deadline have not been announced yet but is expected in the next few days. In the meantime, both municipalities are seeking public input on the project. An online survey is on the town and the city websites (www.blackfalds.com and www.lacombe.ca). crhyno@reddeeradvocate.com

STORIES FROM A1

HEAT: Pools busy It does however require that employers provide a safe and healthy workplace and that they assess hazards and ensure that controls are in place to prevent injuries, said Glover. People who were attempting to escape the heat with recreation include the City of Red Deer’s downtown Recreation Centre, where the two pools have a total capacity of 540 people. The Rec Centre has been so busy since Saturday, people have had to wait in line at times because there simply was no more room, said recreation superintendent Kay Kenny. Those big crowds have also put pressure on the parking lot, which is shared with the Golden Circle and the Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery. Kenny said the late afternoon is the busiest time of day, with families bringing their beach chairs and coolers to spend their time splashing around in the water. It’s a great way to get fit and keep cool, she said. However, Kenny suggests that people consider coming down earlier in the day or after supper to avoid the crunch and that they park in the largelyunused lot at the south side of the building. The big lot, adjacent to the tennis court, is easily accessible by a pathway that runs between the pool and the museum she said. Alberta Health Services has been warning people to take precautions to avoid heat stress and sunburn. So far, there have been no reports of people suffering heat-related injuries at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre, said communications officer Heather Kipling. However, she did find that Health Link Alberta has received about four times as many calls as usual from people with heat-related health concerns. While Tuesday was supposed to be the hottest day of the week with an anticipated high of 31C, Environment Canada forecasts more sunny days ahead, tempered by a few high clouds. As of late Tuesday afternoon, the five-day forecast for Red Deer suggests highs of 28C today, 27C on Thursday and Friday, and back to 28C for Saturday and Sunday. Further west, Rocky Mountain House is expecting slightly lower temperatures with thunderstorms this afternoon and showers on Thursday, followed a return to completely clear skies on the weekend. Sunworshippers in the Stettler area should have few complaints, with daytime temperatures reaching the high 20s and a few high clouds from time to time during the same period. bkossowan@reddeeradvocate.com

BIKE: Public consulted Kim McCallister, a letter writer to the Red Deer Advocate, wrote she was concerned how the bike lanes would impact the already busy street in front of Eastview Middle School. “I can’t even imagine what chaos will occur if there are only two lanes of traffic,” she wrote. “Can you see parents that drop off or pick up their little ones in the parking lot of Maryview School getting blocked in because westbound traffic on 39th Avenue is backed up past St. Thomas Aquinas Middle School? This is a very likely scenario.” Last year the city consulted the public on the

Last year, the city painted four bike lanes — Riverside Drive from 67th Street to Three Mile Bend access, Riverview Drive from 60th Street to 65th Street, Kerrywood Drive from Fir Street to Overland Place, and Cronquist Drive from 54th Avenue to Webster Drive. The new lanes were approved by city council in April. Since that time the city has met with the area schools affected by the lanes including Eastview Elementary, Maryview, St. Thomas Aquinas, Gateway Christian and Central Middle schools to notify them of the changes before the upcoming school year. Residents in the other areas were also notified. City of Red Deer senior communications consultant Michael Cox said the city has received 13 inquiries from the residents in the areas (59th Street, Grant Street, downtown and at the schools) near the stretch of the new lanes. One concern was about the turning on 39th Street but the two turning bays should help alleviate the concerns. “At this point nothing has been painted yet on (the roadways we have chosen),” said Cox. “That’s why we wanted to notify people in advance so they knew it was coming and it wasn’t a big surprise.” Cox said the roadways can handle the current volume of traffic and the traffic with the changes to the road configuration. “We understand it will be a change for drivers and for cyclists as well,” said Cox. “This is the opportunity to get out in the summer before school comes so people get used to cyclists on the road and drivers get used to the road configuration.” crhyno@reddeeradvocate.com

PARK: Plan stretched out over 10 years Heaps said the plan is stretched out over 10 years, with smaller items set over the next one to three years, while bigger items like the synthetic turf field to take place beyond five years. Community Services director Greg Scott said the timeline for these projects would include considering what may have to be done should the city be awarded the 2019 Canada Winter Games. The plan suggests the city do a formal parking and access study to determine the need and specific parking requirements for tournament use. City Coun. Cindy Jefferies said the city should also consider the future pedestrian bridge that will be built from Riverlands into Bower Ponds/Great Chief Park. “I think it will be an important alternate access route,” said Jefferies. She called it an exciting plan that involved a number of sports groups. But it’s an ambitious one as well, she said. “I have some concerns about our capacity, mostly on staffing because in our recent budget we did cut some positions in parks and recreation around facilities development,” she said. “We have to be careful we don’t load too much on an already reduced capacity area of the city.” For more information, go online to www.reddeer. ca and click on the “plans” link. ltester@reddeeradvocate.com

Power providers reviewing Monday’s outages PEAK USAGE COINCIDED WITH SUDDEN DROP IN GENERATING CAPACITY BY BRENDA KOSSOWAN ADVOCATE STAFF Power providers will review Monday’s outages with hope that it’s nothing they’ll encounter again any time soon. It’s strictly coincidence that six of the 35 different generators in Alberta failed on the same day that a new record for summertime usage was set, said Doug Simpson, director of marketing operations for the Alberta Electric System Operator. Between 1 and 2 p.m. on Monday, power usage in Alberta peaked at 9,885 megawatts, breaking the summer record set last July 18 of 9,552 megawatts. Alberta’s all-time high for electrical demand was set on Jan. 15 of this year at 10,609 megawatts. Monday’s peak came at the same time as a sudden drop in generating capacity, Simpson said from his office in Calgary on Tuesday. “It’s not unusual to have an individual generating unit go off line for a forced outage, or maybe even a couple, but we ended up with six and that puts a significant dent in our supply,” he said. Alberta’s generators, including windfarms and hydro plants, have a combined output of 14,000 mega-

watts. Losing six generators at once brought the output to 1.5 to 2 per cent below demand, triggering a need to cut back on usage until operations could be restored at the failed plants. Power providers across the province, including the City of Red Deer, were each asked to take a share of the hit, said Simpson. Red Deer was put on alert at about 1:30 p.m. and started its program of rolling outages at 2:15 p.m. in sections of Deer Park and Rosedale, said Jim Jorgensen, electricity, light and power manager for the city. The rolling outages continued through the city, section by section, until AESO called everything off at 5:15 p.m. Jorgensen said on Tuesday afternoon that his department had not tallied the total number of homes and other facilities that were affected by the time it was all over. He had hoped to limit outages at each site to 15 minutes, but it was determined that it would be more efficient to run them at 20 to 30 minutes. While rolling outages are a normal activity in places like California, where the power supply frequently runs over capacity, it is an unusual situation

in Alberta, said Jorgensen. Monday’s events will be analyzed to determine what worked and where there were problems. The outages should serve a reminder for individual consumers to assess their own situations and determine how vulnerable they would be during a power outage, said Jorgensen. For example, people could consider a backup power supply for emergencies, including an uninterrupted power supply unit so their computers don’t crash if there is an outage, he said. Larger facilities, including hospitals, have emergency generators and other backup systems to ensure that there are not problems if there is an interruption. Jorgensen and Simpson are also asking people to consider cutting down on the amount of electricity they use during the peak period, which runs from 5 to 7 p.m. AESO advises taking a variety of steps, including turning off unneccessary lights and appliances, keeping drapes closed during the hottest part of the day to reduce the load on air conditioning units and waiting until after 7 p.m. to run large appliances including washers and dryers. bkossowan@reddeeradvocate.com

Provincial rule nixes plan to allow angle parking in cul-de-sacs BY LAURA TESTER ADVOCATE STAFF A provincial rule requiring municipalities to post signs for any angle parking has kiboshed plans to allow this kind of parking in Red Deer cul-de-sacs. City council passed a motion on Monday that no changes would be made to the city’s traffic bylaw around allowing angle parking in cul-de-sacs. Administration was directed to see if the province can amend its Traffic Safety Act to eliminate the requirement for specific signs, which would result in unnecessary over-signage and costs. Staff had suggested angle parking be allowed on cul-de-sacs where garbage pickup is accessed from back lanes, and that it only be allowed from May 1 to Nov. 30 so that it doesn’t effect snow clearing. Elaine Vincent, manager of Legislative and Governance Services, said this issue arose after a resident

Ellis wins Rimbey byelection The Town of Rimbey has a new face at counci’s table. Construction worker Scott Ellis defeated challenger Wayne Clark in Monday’s byelection to replace former councillor Joe Anglin who stepped down to take a run at provincial politics. Anglin is now the Wildrose MLA for RimbeyRocky Mountain HouseSundre. Ellis, 34, has lived in Rimbey for five years and is married to Chris Ellis, a doctor at Rimbey Hospital. Ellis said it was his sense of community that compelled him to get into politics. “Rimbey is a great place to live,” said Ellis. “What I really felt was this big sense of community spirit and strong volunteerism among the community and a sense of coming together and building a stronger community. I want to bring some of that positive energy to the table. Let’s just work together. People just want to see council to get the job done then using it as at platform to air their grievances.” Ellis received 255 votes while challenger and former councillor Wayne Clark received 167 votes. Ellis will be sworn in at the next Rimbey town council meeting on July 16.

Man charged with home invasion to remain in jail One of the two men accused in a violent home invasion in Red Deer earlier this year will stay in jail for now, awaiting a preliminary hearing set for next spring. Jason Eljas Holkko, 25, was arrested on April 2 in connection with a home invasion and robbery at a home in the Kentwood subdivision at about 1:30 a.m. on March 6. Police allege that two masked and armed men entered the house looking for someone who was not there. The suspects beat and bound the five people who were in the house and then robbed them of a variety of belongings, including a pickup truck. Three of the victims were taken to hospital to be treated for injuries. Police allege that Holkko, a resident of B.C., was identified by DNA evidence found in the pickup truck, which was abandoned in a rural area outside of Red Deer. Holkko was denied bail on July 3 and will remain in custody pending a preliminary hearing, scheduled for May 1, 2013. A preliminary hearing

felt it was inappropriate to receive a ticket for parking at an angle. Council asked for a review. The issue warranted a look, she added. “We’ve had a number of complaints in the last couple of months that have caused us to go out and write tickets, even when we’ve been under review,” said Vincent. Tickets are normally handed out on a complaint basis or if there are problems with garbage pickup. “The thing that I’m frustrated with is that in one cul-de-sac, it’s OK and in another cul-de-sac, it’s not,” said Coun. Buck Buchanan. “So the consistency (is not there).” Coun. Tara Veer said she was concerned about adding signs. “It seems like we are oversigning our city,” said Veer. “The root issue really does seem to be the constraints around the provincial law.” To spend $54,000 on additional signs in 2012, following rigorous debate on the operating budget, is a is held to determine whether the case will proceed to trial.

waste, she added. “We should try to pursue this with the provincial government and see if there’s any flexibility.” Edmonton and Medicine Hat allow angle parking on cul-de-sacs whereas Calgary, Lethbridge and St. Albert do not. Councillors Dianne Wyntjes, Paul Harris and Buchanan voted against the motion. “While we can continue to have those conversations with the government, it takes a long time,” Wyntjes said later. “We’re missing what some of the citizens are needing and asking for.” Wyntjes said it would have been appropriate to allow the signs where garbage pickup is accessed from back lanes, and during the summer months only. “Signage complies with the act and it provides clarity for citizens, so the ($54,000) would have been appropriate for responding to our citizens’ requests,” she said. ltester@reddeeradvocate.com The second suspect has not been identified or charged

Tour needs to recalibrate After watching Canadian cycling champion Ryder Hesjedal exit the Tour de France on Friday — lucky that all he suffered in the horrific mass crash of racers was deep bruising to his left hip, plus the loss of skin — one can’t help but wonder that if the athletes were riding horses and not bicycles, the tour might have been cancelled decades ago. The reactions of riders, managers and tour organizers to the carnage on the most crash-filled tour in decades seems to indicate that while it is trying to clean up its image after years of doping scandals, the sport still doesn’t understand itself. When the list grew too long of hockey players with careers cut short (or never started) and lives ruined by injuries, caretaker organizations at all levels decided to make changes. They recognized — a bit later than fans and the general public — that hockey had become too brutal to survive in its current state. This week, we are watching the Calgary Stampede. Concerns about the

OURVIEW GREG NEIMAN safety of both human and animal participants are not new to rodeo, but they do seem to grow each year. The irony of concern from celebrity commentators like Bob Barker, who want rodeo banned, period, is not lost in the lack of concern expressed by organizers of the world’s third largest sporting event (after Summer Olympics and the World Cup of soccer) for the safety of their cyclist athletes. These huge events are not just celebrations of excellence in human achievement, they are highly lucrative family compacts. They are above government, above humanity — even above memory, apparently. “We have no memory,” said Tour de France director Christian Prudhomme, after being asked if seeing 10 per cent of the event’s participants exit due to injury in the first week of this year’s tour was the worst he’s seen. “Every year, people say this.”

Indeed. You can read this reaction in a variety of ways. Either the millions of fans of the Tour de France don’t understand the sport enough to rationalize its risks, or the sport doesn’t understand itself. Either the critics of rodeo do not understand the efforts of rodeo personnel to care for their stock, or rodeo does not understand itself. Either the governors of hockey do not understand the risks they ask players to take in order to participate at the highest level, or the fans just don’t know hockey. Auto racing is either patently unsafe, or there is too much money to be made selling tickets to fans who just want to witness a crash. Just under 200 cyclists started the tour riding cheek-by-jowl in a pack that travels 70 km/h at times. Some riders claim risks are heightened by coaches yelling at them over radio earphones to get out front, when there’s no room out front for everyone. Other riders insist that the world’s premier cycling event has too many untrained riders in

it, which seems hard to believe. Others say the rush for money in advertising and sponsorships has pressured the event to accept more teams than it can safely manage. Christian Prudhomme simply claims amnesia. Professional cycling did not taking doping seriously until athletes started dying on their beds. Perhaps it will take the safety of the race itself seriously when too many cyclists, like Oscar Freire, are taken to hospital with punctured lungs. Nobody wants to witness those cycling crashes and we know they are not perfectly preventable. Last year, a media car clipped rider Juan Antonio Flecha, who bumped Dutchman Johnny Hoogerland, who flew headlong into a barbed wire fence. That prompted a rule change. But professional cycling risks losing public support if the pursuit of money and glory puts the cream of its sport at too great a risk. Greg Neiman is an Advocate editor.

LETTERS Cool idea for your house For those of us who don’t have air conditioners in our houses (or for those who do, and who wish to save some electricity), there is a simple trick called a “whole house fan.” The bigger ones can be professionally installed, but a small unit is very easy to make. Just find your attic trap door and cut a new piece of plywood the same size as the trap door. Then cut a hole in the plywood slightly smaller than a household fan. Pop the fan into the hole, so that it forces air into the attic. Then, in the late evening, when outside temperatures are lower than in the house, crack open a few windows and turn the fan on. Leave it on overnight and it will draw cool air into the house. Then, in the morning, turn it off, shut the windows and draw the drapes. We’ve been doing this for years, and it’s always nice to come home to a house that is five to 10 degrees cooler than the outside oven. Evan Bedford Red Deer

Parking more valuable than biking This is a letter of concern regarding the announcement (received on June 27) that residents on 59th Avenue, from 67th Street to Grant Street will lose street parking privileges due to installation of bike lanes on both sides of 59th Avenue. I am sure that our representatives put a lot of thought into this concept. However, it was done in an arbitrary manner. To my knowledge, there was no consultation with the residents who are about to lose street parking privileges. The city can be proud of the bike trail network that is in existence, and expansion of such requires careful consideration of bikers as well as residents. Bike lanes should be placed in areas that offer an environment conducive to biking. 59th Avenue is a “connector road” for city commuting, and is one of three main arteries to downtown from the north. Our avenue is a bus route, a commuter route, used as a shortcut for the RCMP, and is used by numerous trucks despite the fact that it is not a truck route. 59th Avenue is fast moving (even though speed limit is 50 km/h) and noisy. Removing parking from the avenue will turn it into a speedway. Removal of parking privileges will reduce our property values. Parking availability is an important consideration whether an individual is purchasing or renting. In short, street parking is absolutely essential for many residents on 59th Avenue. Parking two blocks away is simply not acceptable. I do hope that some reconsideration of this proposal will be given. Jim Dawson Red Deer

Voting system at stake, top court hears BY THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — Residents of a Toronto riding are left to wonder who will represent them in Parliament while the Supreme Court of Canada mulls a first-ofits-kind case into an overturned election, one that goes to the very heart of the democratic process. The justices reserved their decision Tuesday in a Conservative MP’s appeal of a lower-court ruling that tossed out the result of last year’s federal election in Etobicoke Centre. Defeated Liberal candidate Borys Wrzesnewskyj, who brought the original suit in the lower courts, said the case is vital to maintain confidence in the integrity of the voting system. If the high court upholds the lower ruling, Prime Minister Stephen Harper will have six months to call a byelection, although Wrzesnewskyj said the vote should be held as soon as possible. “Should we win this case, it’s incumbent on the prime minister to act immediately,” he said outside the courtroom. “Democracy requires it. We can’t have this situation where we don’t know who the rep-

resentative is.” Waiting the full six months would set “a terrible precedent,” he added. Wrzesnewskyj lost the riding by just 26 votes to Conservative MP Ted Opitz. But the defeated Liberal went to court, claiming procedural irregularities. Earlier this year, an Ontario Superior Court judge found that Elections Canada officials made clerical errors at the polls. Justice Thomas Lederer threw out 79 votes and overturned the final result. But Opitz appealed the issue to the Supreme Court — the first time that has happened. Only five other election results have been nullified by the courts since 1949. None of those rulings were appealed and byelections were quickly called to re-determine the will of the people in each riding. Opitz’s lawyer, Kent Thomson, argued that the voting rights of people in Etobicoke Centre were trampled by simple record-keeping errors. “It’s hard to think that a constitutional right of this importance could hang by so fine a thread,” he told the court. The Etobicoke Centre result was overturned on

the grounds that paperwork was not properly filled out for voters who needed someone to vouch for their identity or who were left off the list of electors. In his ruling, Lederer specifically stressed the irregularities were the result of clerical errors by well-meaning Elections Canada officials, not the product of fraud or intentional wrongdoing. Since then, however, Wrzesnewskyj has resurrected other more serious allegations of ballot-box stuffing and voter suppression by Opitz’s campaign, though nothing has been proven. “People lost their franchise, they lose their right to vote. When people lose their right to vote, an election is not free,” Wrzesnewskyj said. “When ballots end up in the box that shouldn’t have been there because someone showed up without ID and without proper vouching was allowed to vote, or people were allowed to vote even though they weren’t registered, that’s not a fair election. “Elections cannot be free if they’re not fair, and they cannot be fair if they’re not free.”

Scientists march to Parliament Hill to protest ‘death of evidence’ BY THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — Hundreds of scientists stepped away from their petri dishes on Tuesday to denounce what they say are the Harper government’s sweeping cuts to research. Flanked by supporters, the white-coated scientists marched through downtown Ottawa to Parliament Hill for a mock funeral marking “the death of evidence.” They carried placards that read “No Science, No Evidence, No Truth,” and “Save ELA,” referring to the experimental lakes area that recently had its funding cut. A central theme of the rally was the planned closure of the ELA, a research station in Ontario that produces critical data used to combat acid rain and phosphate pollution in lake water. Without government funding, it is slated to close in 2013. “The experimental lakes area is a world-class, living, outdoor laboratory where scientists have studied how to protect freshwater for decades,” said Maude Barlow, head of the Council of Canadians and a former senior adviser on water to the UN General Assembly. “The Harper government is shaming Canadians in the eyes of the world and killing a major gift to water science at the very moment we are really beginning to understand the depth of the global water crisis.” But the protesters also decried the Conservative government’s overall economic agenda, which they

say puts the environment at risk for the sake of creating jobs. The Conservatives make no apologies for wanting to focus scientific research in areas where money and jobs can be made. Canada has been lagging behind other nations in terms of applied scientific research and putting it to commercial use, said a government official who didn’t want to be identified. “Our government is taking steps to correct that — but not at the expense of basic research,” said the official. Gary Goodyear, minister of state for science and technology, defended the government, saying the Tories have made historic investments in science, technology and research to create jobs and grow the economy. “This year . . . we enhanced federal government support for leading-edge research including $500 million — over five years — for the Canada Foundation for Innovation,” Goodyear said in an emailed statement. But the protesters said Conservatives policies weaken or abolish scientific institutions, in the name of making it easier to develop natural resources. The Council of Canadians, which sponsored the rally, said scientific evidence is being destroyed through cuts to critical programs at the National Research Council, Environment Canada and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans.

MONTREAL — Twin Playboy bunnies and an animal-rights group tried to enlist one of the world’s biggest porn stars last year to help catch Luka Rocco Magnotta. Ron Jeremy said he was asked to lure Magnotta, a small-time Canadian porn actor, to Los Angeles with a phoney job offer to appear in an X-rated flick. The ploy was concocted more than a year before Magnotta became a murder suspect in the gruesome death of Montreal student Jun Lin. Instead of meeting a legend who’s cavorted for the camera in more than 2,000 adult films, Magnotta was to be apprehended by a hard-nosed group of animalrights activists. Jeremy, however, got cold feet and the sting operation never moved ahead. At the time, animal-rights advocates had alleged that Magnotta killed kittens and posted videos of the deeds on the Internet — accusations he has publicly denied. Jeremy, an active animal-rights campaigner, wanted to help out, but was uncomfortable with the whole idea of being the bait. “That’s a little bit out of my league, don’t you think?” Jeremy told The Canadian Press in a phone interview about the January 2011 proposal. “It’s like an episode from some TV show. The (guy) comes to the set with lube in one hand and his schmeckle in the other thinking he has a job, and the cops tackle him to the ground. “That’s good for the movies. That doesn’t work in real life.” Last month, Magnotta was charged with first-degree murder in the ghastly May slaying and dismemberment of the 33-year-old Lin. He pleaded not guilty in a Montreal courtroom. The idea for the porn-gig trap was hatched by Rescue Ink, a group of rough-and-tumble animal activists based in Queens, N.Y. Its membership includes police officers, military personnel and tattooed “street guys.” To connect with Jeremy, Rescue Ink reached out to a couple of his acquaintances: former Playboy playmates Sia and Shane Barbi, also known as the Barbi Twins. Up until a recent chat with a reporter, Jeremy wasn’t even aware that Magnotta was now a murder suspect. “I told Sia I’m willing to do things and help, do public service announcements, or whatever it takes,” said Jeremy, 59, who has been a spokesman for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. “But I’m not a law-enforcement agent. How do I catch somebody?” The actor, who has also directed nearly 300 porn films, was to personally invite Magnotta to come to a Hollywood adult-movie set. Rescue Ink collaborators would have been waiting there in the shadows to pounce on an unsuspecting Magnotta. Their captive would have later been handed over to authorities.

No meat, no dairy, no eggs?

COOKING FOR A VEGAN DIET SIMPLY MEANS YOU CAN HAVE EVERYTHING ELSE — INCLUDING TASTE

No problem! My niece announced earlier this year, that she will no longer be eating meat, dairy, eggs and any other animal by-products. She was going vegan! Thinking that it was another whimsical teenage phase, I didn’t think much of it. But after six months, she is still embracing her new lifestyle choice. Though I love to explore different cuisine and cooking techniques, I have to admit, I found veganism totally intimidating. After her announcement I began to eliminate all our signature meals which she enjoyed having at our house. No more backyard wiener roasts, no more fresh baking welcoming her arrivals and the idea of having her over for birthday parties and family get together seemed to be more daunting. The first few times she stayed with us, I simply prepared food that I was most comfortable preparing — Indian food. The Indian cuisine bases MADHU its meals around lentil BADONI and vegetables, using meat as a supplement or not at all. So I would vegprepare a repertoire of etables curries and lentil dahls during her visit. But ansform after a few of these, my kids’ faces would transform d that she into painful contours whenever she phoned was coming. I decided it was time to quit focusing on everything my niece could not have and discoverr recipes that could be enjoyed together again. So, I went on ”. the quest to become more “vegan-educated”. I learned about vegan friendly products available itutions at the grocery stores and some clever substitutions that can be used to accommodate the vegan diet. I explored store aisles which I normally overlooked. After a few months of experimentation and learning about different ingredients, I have incorporated my niece’s new lifestyle choice into our family meals. Meat can be easily replaced with mock meat products available in grocer’s refrigerator or freezer section. Essentially, this is a substitute for meat made with ingredients such as soy, tofu and wheat gluten, which tries to replicate the taste, texture and appearance of real meats. After cooking and grilling up a few, I have discovered that they are designed to be cooked just like their real-meat counterparts. If you can grill a hot dog, you can grill a “not dog” too! I also ventured into the world of tofu. My family hates tofu and I have been banned from bringing it in the house, but I love tofu! I have experimented with it many times and disguised them into many family meals. On its own, it has very little flavor, so it can be used in a variety of dishes, both sweet and savory. Silken and regular tofu can be found on most grocery store shelves. Silken tofu is equivalent to thin custard or heavy cream and I have found works well in pureed or blended dishes, like dips and spreads, soups, and baked desserts. You can make many recipes much healthier by substituting pureed silken tofu for mayonnaise, cream or sour cream. Regular tofu comes in medium firm, firm or extra firm and generally has a meaty texture so it works well in stir fries and for grilling. Crumbled tofu can be substituted for cottage cheese or ricotta cheese in lasagna and similar dishes Since tofu really has no flavor, it’s important that it is seasoned properly. If you grill a slab of tofu with nothing on it, it won’t taste very good. Tofu acts like a sponge, so it’s important to give it flavors to absorb. Whenever I make tofu as a meat replacement, I always marinate it first, usually all day so that it really soaks in. With so many non-dairy options available, it’s not hard to replace dairy milk in the vegan diet. You can find all different milk alternatives at most grocery stores. There is almond, rice and soy milk that taste just as good and could easily be replaced in recipes that calls for dairy milk. Buttermilk can be replaced with soured soy or rice milk. For each cup of buttermilk, use 1 cup soymilk plus 1 tablespoon of vinegar. Several brands of non-dairy cream cheese are available in some su-

permarkets and health food stores. Butter can be replaced with several different products, the most common of which is margarine. However, not all margarines are vegan. It is very important to read the labels of margarines and look out for things like whey, lactose and modified milk ingredients. Vegan Becel and Earth Balance margarine are the safe choices when looking for non-dairy product. There are also other ways of replacing butter like using all vegetable shortening or oil. In baking, when egg is used as binder, one egg can be substituted by using ¼ cup of applesauce, mashed banana or silken tofu. Vinegar is also a great egg replacer and

Mix the pasta and the sauce and serve with some fresh basil on top and crushed chilli peppers for garnish.

FOOD

as mentioned earlier, it can turn ordinary soy milk into buttermilk. I think my greatest lesson learned through this journey was just how easy it is to turn everyday meals into vegan friendly by simply substituting a few common ingredients. For example example, if I was planning on making potato salad for a barbecue then I substitute soy-based vegan mayonnaise for the traditional egg-based variety. Making a salad? Leave the cheese and dressing out on the side for people to add themselves, and you’ve ensured that everyone can enjoy the veggies, even if they can’t eat dairy products or creamy dressings. I found many of my baked goods that I would welcome my niece with could easily be made by using vegan friendly ingredients. And the kicker — the rest of the family wasn’t able to tell the difference! I have discovered that there are countless morning bread recipes, wide range of meatless main course meals and some so decadent chocolate delights that we can still enjoy with our veganarian!

Tandoori Tofu Kabob

350g firm tofu 3 tbsp soy milk 2 tbsp Tandoori masala ¼ tsp red chili powder ½ tsp garam masala 1 tbsp fresh ground ginger 1 tbsp fresh ground garlic 1 tbsp olive oil ½ tsp salt or according to taste Cubed vegetables (red, green pepper, tomatoes, zucchini etc.) Skewers, soaked Cut tofu into 1-inch cubes. Mix all ingredients (except tofu and vegetables) in yogurt. Add tofu and marinate overnight. Skewer tofu with vegetables and grill for 5 minutes on hot barbecue. For a juicer kabob you can also sauté in olive oil in frying pan.

Fresh Tomato “Cream” Sauce with Garlic and Basil

5 hot house tomatoes, - chop them up with juices ¼ cup of tomato paste 1 cup of raw cashews - soak them in water overnight 1 cup finely minced fresh basil 6 cloves garlic Linguine, cooked Chilli pepper for garnish Using a blender, blend the tomatoes to juice consistency. Next, add ¼ cup of the tomato paste and the soaked cashews (drained). Puree until the cashews are fully blended — this could take a few minutes. In a large pan, heat ¼ cup of olive oil and add 6 cloves minced or pressed garlic After 2 minutes, add the

Vegan Chocolate cake Ve

1 ¼ cups flour 1 cup sugar 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 1 tsp baking soda ½ tsp salt 1 cup warm water 1 tsp vanilla extract 1/3 cup vegetable oil 1 tsp distilled white or apple cider vinegar

Chocolate Glaze

½ cup sugar 4 tbsp vegan margarine (Becel) 2 tbsp soy milk 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder 2 tsp vanilla extract Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In an 8X8 square pan/dish, mix together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and salt with a fork, making sure it is really blended together. Add the water, vanilla, oil, and vinegar, and again, mix together so that it’s really blended together. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides if necessary. Place in oven and bake for about 30 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean. Cool on a rack completely. For the glaze, in a small saucepan, bring sugar, margarine, milk, and cocoa to a boil. Stir frequently; then reduce heat to a simmer for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. It’ll look gloppy, but it’s just the bubbles! Remove from heat and stir for another 5 minutes. Add vanilla, stir, and immediately pour onto cake. Glaze dries really quickly, so spread it immediately.

Vegan Blueberry Muffins

2 cups all-purpose flour 1 ½ tsp baking soda ½ teaspoon salt 2 lemon zest ¾ cup sugar 1 cup soy milk 1/3 cup Canola oil 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 tablespoon white vinegar 1 and ½ cups fresh OR frozen blueberries Preheat the oven to 375F. Lightly grease a muffin tin. In a medium bowl, combine together flour, baking soda, salt and lemon zest. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, milk, oil, extract, and vinegar. Mix well. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stir until just combined. Don’t over stir. Gently fold in the berries using a rubber spatula. .Fill the muffin tins about 2/3rds full. Bake until a wooden skewer inserted into the center comes out clean, about 22 minutes. Madhu Badoni is a Red Deer-based freelance food writer. She can be reached at madhubadoni@gmail.com.

Paraphrasing is easy enough to do, but if you really want to get a good handle on a subject, I recommend you break down the information into its simplest form. Write down the basic concept or principle and then look for examples from your own life experience that express or demonstrate the point. Perhaps the better our self-esteem, the more willing we become to seek out good advice and the more insightful we become as to what advice is relevant and applicable to our lives. Remember, discernment takes experience — it is impossible to discern when we are unaware. It’s easy to look at a piece of advice and come up with a dozen reasons why it won’t work for us. If a suggestion doesn’t fit your situation precisely, rather than dismissing it outright, try looking for ways in which a small aspect of the advice might fit. If nothing else, the advice can provide you with an opportunity for greater insight into the mind of the advice-giver. This can open the door to greater

understanding, empathy and even enhanced self-awareness. Jack Canfield, co-author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series of books, once wrote, “Most of life is onthe-job training. Some of the most important things can only be learned in the process of doing them. You do something and you get feedback about what works and what doesn’t. If you don’t do anything for fear of doing it wrong, poorly or badly you never get any feedback and therefore you never get to improve.” The bottom line: for each of us, there is a right time and place to benefit from advice. We must develop a receptive mind before asking for advice, and be ready to find a way to incorporate it into our lives. “Do you know what Mark Twain said about his father?” I asked. “No,” replied my friend. “But I imagine it’s pithy and relevant.” “Mark Twain said, ‘When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years.’” We both laughed at that one. There’s an old piece of advice that still rings true: listen to your elders. Though I disregarded much of my parents’ wisdom when I was teenager, I did have the good sense to file it away for future reference. Whatever the circumstances, I think we can all learn something of value when we’re offered another’s insights into resolving life issues. Murray Fuhrer is a self-esteem expert and facilitator.

Common skin conditions affecting horses Skin conditions/diseases Part 1 Have you ever looked at your horse and noticed an unusual bump, spot or hairless patch? There are a multitude of conditions that may cause you to wonder what is going on and whether you should be calling your veterinarian. In the next few columns I am going to discuss some of the most common skin conditions, today I will start with ringworm, sarcoids, warts, aural plaques and capped elbow. Ringworm (Dermatophysis): Although highly contagious (between horses and under certain circumstances their handlers!), ringworm is normally not a huge problem. Characterized by circular hairless patches that are crusty and scaly, ringworm has nothing to do with worms or parasites. It is actually caused by one of several species of fungus. Typically ringworm is found on the face, neck, or front half of the body area and may be a cluster of lesions or SHELLY L. an individual lesion. GRAHAM If left untreated, ringworm will resolve in roughly three months; however it will spread throughout your herd and potentially to you. You should isolate the affected horse. There are several anti-fungal creams available on the market, avoid any that contain corticosteroids as the body’s inflammatory response is useful in fighting the fungus. Also avoid using iodine on affected areas as it can cause severe irritation. Your veterinarian can recommend an effective ointment to treat the ringworm as well as what should be done to minimize the spread. The fungal spores can remain in brushes, halters, blankets or anything the horse has touched for months. It will be important to carefully disinfect anything and everything the infected horse has come into contact with. Sarcoids: Explaining sarcoids in a few paragraphs is next to impossible and since I’ve had a great deal of experience with them, I will dedicate an entire column to them at a later date. A cause is not exactly agreed upon and treatments are often not effective. Sarcoids vary in appearance and are classified into types based on their appearance. They are the most common skin tumour found in horses and are usually found in younger animals. Sarcoids can be extremely aggressive in their growth. Commonly found on the head, neck or body, they can occur anywhere on the horse. Occult sarcoids are flat, crusty round hairless patches. They start small and grow slowly. They may

Sacroid, left, and capped elbow among the most common skin problems with horse. progress into a ‘warty’ looking appearance or remain flat. Verrucous sarcoids may have a warty appearance with flaking and scaling. Nodular sarcoids look like grapes under the horse’s skin, there may be one or many clustered in the same area. Fibroblastic sarcoids appear as large open raised sores. Clusters of occult, verrucous and fibroblastic sarcoids may all be found in a one area. Warts: Warts are caused by the Equine Papilloma Virus and although they are very contagious within a group of young horses, they are specific to horses. They actually look like tiny heads of cauliflower and are commonly found in large masses around the muzzle or sometimes the eyes. While young horses under four are the typical victim, older horses can be at risk if they have compromised immune systems. They can be spread by direct contact such as feed bowls or halters but flies can also spread the virus. Thankfully, they typically resolve on their own in time, the horse’s own immune system kicks in and fights off the virus in several months. Aural Plaques: These are the white waxy, flaky spots found in some horse’s ears. They are also part of the papilloma wart virus and can be spread by biting insects. This condition, in its extremely sensitive location, is very difficult to treat. If left unmanaged these plaques grow into large warty looking clusters

that cause discomfort. Outfitting your horse with ear protection will decrease the irritation (from biting insects) and prevent the infection from getting worse. They can lead to head shyness or head tossing in some horses. Discuss treatment options with your veterinarian to determine what’s best for your horse. Capped Elbow or Shoe Boil: Fortunately this one has nothing to do with viruses or fungus, it is actually a cosmetic blemish caused by trauma to the elbow of the horse. Any kind of direct blow or prolonged pressure from a front shoe when the horse is lying down with his front leg folded can cause a capped elbow. When the initial swelling subsides and the injury heals there will likely be scarring visible. This scarring will be a hairless area of flaky, dry skin. If the aesthetic of this condition bother you there may be surgical options. Lumps, bumps and missing patches of hair are not unusual in the lives of our horses. It is important to take note of any new and unusual formations on your horse and monitor any changes closely. Taking photographs to document changes and calling your veterinarian to assess the situation are responsible ways of managing your horse’s health. Shelly L. Graham is a local rider, trainer, horse breeder and Equine Canada certified coach.

New Yorkers passionate about their super-size sugar drinks ity and infringing on personal freedom. “Hands off my Bladder” read a sign hoisted by Dominic Inferrera, a singer and actor in his 30s. “For a ban as ridiculous as this one, we need a protest with some humour,” said Inferrera, holding a Double Gulp cup he said was half filled with Powerade, half with Sprite. For some, the issue was far from funny.

NEW YORK — Mayor Michael Bloomberg says that if New Yorkers want to kill themselves with sugar — that’s their right. That was the mayor’s response Monday to a small, peaceful protest rally against a ban on big sodas on a sidewalk near City Hall Park — dubbed The Million Big Gulp March. Bloomberg has proposed a crackdown on super-sized drinks. He wants to stop bar restaurants, movie theatres, sports arenas, food carts and delis from selling sodas and other sugary drinks in servings larger than 16 ounces. He says it’s a way to fight obesity in a city that spends billions of dollars a year on weight-related health problems. “If you want to kill yourself, I guess you have the right to do it.

NL domintes in all-star showdown SAN FRANCISCO SLUGGERS KEY A FIVE-RUN BLITZ SEAN BURKE

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PROMOTED BY COYOTES

National League 8 American League 0 KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Pablo Sandoval and Melky Cabrera turned the All-Star game into a Giant blowout. Flashing their bright orange spikes and booming bats, the San Francisco sluggers keyed a five-run blitz against Justin Verlander in the first inning that sent the National League to an 8-0 romp over the American League on Tuesday night. Cabrera homered and won the MVP award, and Giants teammate Matt Cain started a strong pitching performance for the NL in its most-lopsided All-Star victory. Cain combined with Stephen Strasburg, R.A. Dickey, Aroldis Chapman and the rest of a lights-out staff on a six-hitter. “San Francisco Giants show,” Matt Kemp of the rival Dodgers said during the game. Ryan Braun, an All-Star again after his drug suspension was overturned last winter, doubled, tripled and made a fine catch in the outfield to help give the NL its first three-game winning streak in two decades. Chipper Jones singled in his final AllStar at-bat at age 40 as the NL, under retired manager Tony La Russa, once again claimed home-field advantage in the World Series. Teen sensation Bryce Harper had a shaky All-Star debut. Fellow rookie Mike Trout, only 20, showed off his dynamic skills. The game was pretty much decided a few moments after it started. Sandoval hit the first bases-loaded triple in All-Star history off Verlander, who couldn’t control his 100 mph heat. Cabrera singled and scored the first run, then hit a two-run homer against Matt Harrison in a three-run fourth. “I don’t get many triples,” said the slowfooted Sandoval, known as Kung Fu Panda. “We had some fun with that in the dugout.” Cabrera was flanked by his mom as he received his award. “I was surprised for me, the MVP, but thank you, the fans,” he said. San Francisco fans, who made a late voting push to elect Sandoval and Cabrera to starting spots, might really appreciate the victory come October. The Giants are a half-game behind the first-place Dodgers in the NL West. Rafael Furcal also hit a three-bagger,

The Phoenix Coyotes have promoted Sean Burke to assistant to the general manager and signed him to a three-year contract extension, the team announced Tuesday. Burke will work with Coyotes general manager Don Maloney, assistant GM Brad Treliving and director of hockey administration Chris O’Hearn in all areas of hockey operations. He will also retain his duties as goaltender coach and director of player development. “We are very pleased to sign Sean to a contract extension,” Maloney said in a statement. “For the past three years, Sean has done a tremendous job working with all the goaltenders in our organization helping them improve and succeed on the ice. We look forward to him continuing in this role and also assisting our hockey operations department in all areas of the business.”

American League’s Jose Bautista, of the Toronto Blue Jays, catches a fly ball hit by National League’s Ryan Braun, of the Milwaukee Brewers, during the second inning of the MLB All-Star baseball game on Tuesday in Kansas City, Mo. making the NL the first league with three in an All-Star game. As the All-Stars returned to Kansas City for the first time since 1973, La Russa bid a fond farewell to the national stage in the city where he played for his first major league team. Having retired after managing St. Louis to last year’s World Series title, La Russa became just the fourth inactive manager to skipper an All-Star team and improved to 4-2. “Just lucky, like I’ve been 30 years,” La Russa said.

Riggers 8 White Sox 3 It’s been a busy, yet enjoyable year for Mark Fay. The second-year member of the Red Deer Riggers is also playing football with the Central Alberta Buccaneers of the Alberta Football League. “It’s a bit of a juggling act, but I do what I can do and it’s been awesome so far,” he said following the Riggers 8-3 win over the Parkland White Sox in Sunburst Baseball League play at Great Chief Park Tuesday. Fay played football in high school at Lindsay Thurber, but took last year off to concentrate on baseball. “It was good as I got to know the guys and now I’m a lot more comfortable and over the transition stage. Now I’m just playing ball and not worrying about fitting in.” While he enjoys baseball he admits he missed football. “The football guys have been egging me on since high school and I missed it to much to stay away,” said Fay, who plays corner for the Bucs. “So I decided to play a year and see if it takes me anywhere. Possibly I could play at the U of A. I’m glad I came back.” Fay did attend the junior Edmonton Wildcats camp, but didn’t feel it was the right fit. “It’s too much of a commitment with all the others things,” he said. “The university will be a commitment as well, but you focus more on your academics and that’s the main thing. Plus I can still play baseball in the summer.” Fay has finished two years at RDC in kinesiology. The 19-year-old will miss the Buccaneers final regular season game Saturday as he’ll be with the Riggers in Kamloops.

Slow start not what Tiger-Cats envisioned BY DAN RALPH THE CANADIAN PRESS This hasn’t been quite the start linebacker Renauld Williams envisioned for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats defence. Through the opening two weeks of the 2012 season, the unit finds itself last in the CFL in points allowed (41 per game), touchdowns (eight), sacks (one), rushing yards allowed (329) and total yards (883). What’s more, the Ticats (0-2) have forced no turnovers thus far under first-year defensive co-ordinator Casey Creehan. “Coach Creehan has a new scheme that guys are obviously still getting used to,” Williams said Tuesday. “Every play you have to read the keys he’s telling you to read and you have to get to where he’s telling you to get to. “If you don’t, one guy will destroy a whole play. Between the defensive line and the linebackers, everyone has to get to where they’re supposed to get on every

single play. You can’t have a mental lapse.” The Ticats’ slow start can’t be pinned solely on the defence. Hamilton’s offence, while second overall in passing yards and total yards — has turned the ball over six times to stand second only to Calgary (eight). The Ticats have a league-high three turnovers on downs. The good news is with 16 regular-season games remaining, there’s obviously no need for Hamilton to press the panic button. Having said that, the six-foot, 228-pound Williams said Saturday’s home game against the arch-rival Toronto Argonauts (1-1) is critically important. “It’s definitely a must-win for us,” he said. “You don’t want to start 0-3. “There’s a little sense of urgency, more than last week. Any time we play Toronto, it’s a big game regardless of if we were 2-0 or 0-2. This is the game we want to win, we always want to beat Toronto.” Hamilton opened the season dropping a 43-16 home decision to Saskatchewan on

June 29. Roughriders’ quarterback Darian Durant finished 25-of-34 passing for 390 yards and four TDs, three going to slotback Weston Dressler, who had 13 catches for 180 yards. “We were out of sync as a defence that game,” Williams said. “Guys were moved around and people were still getting comfortable to certain spots they were unaccustomed to playing. “I thought in our second game we were more in sync and for three quarters played well.” On Friday night, Hamilton suffered a 3936 road loss to the Grey Cup-champion B.C. Lions. Quarterback Travis Lulay, the CFL’s outstanding player last year, threw for just 178 yards and two TDs but tailback Andrew Harris rushed for 147 yards and a TD on just 13 carries. Harris, the CFL rushing leader with 194 yards, anchored a B.C. ground attack that rolled up 208 total yards and effectively cemented the win.

Raptors sign first-round draft pick THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — The Toronto Raptors signed their first-round draft pick Terrence Ross, the club announced Tuesday. The guard from University of Washington signed a rookie two-year contract, with two team option years to follow.

FAY: Riggers continuing to play well “But we have at least one playoff game,” he said. His only disappointment on the football front this season came last Saturday when the Edmonton Army forfeited their game to the Bucs. It was to be the opening game of the new artificial turf in Lacombe. “That was a big disappointment. I was ready, then at the last second they called and defaulted.” Fay was in the starting lineup in left field for the Riggers Tuesday and was two-for-three with a walk and scored twice. He pitched a scoreless, hitless ninth inning in relief of starter Joel Peterman. “It was nice to contribute,” said Fay, who hit eighth and along with Shayne Court, who batted ninth, collected four of the Riggers 11 hits, scored three times and drove in three runs. Court had two RBIs, a single, double and sacrifice fly. “It was nice that we could work our way around the bases,” said Fay. “There were a few hit and runs and stolen bases . . . it worked out

The six-foot-seven, 197-pound Ross was selected by Toronto with the eighth overall pick in this year’s draft. He averaged 16.4 points and 6.4 rebounds in his second and final season with the Huskies. The Raptors open their five-game NBA Summer League schedule on the campus of the University of Nevada-Las Vegas on Friday against the Houston Rockets. well.” Peterman, who threw 130 pitches, won for the second straight game as he allowed two earned runs while scattering nine hits, walking four and fanning four. “He’s been good for us,” said Fay. “He’s found his rhythm and when he’s throwing strikes he’s tough.” And the team continues to play well, at the plate and on defence. Once again they turned in a pair of spectacular defensive plays as second baseman Denver Wik ranged far to his left to snare a lopping line drive in the first inning and right-fielder Jaret Chatwood made a outstanding diving catch to end the seventh inning with two men on. “Right now we’re playing loose and that’s when we play our best,” said Fay. Wik added a pair of hits for the Riggers while Matt Fay had a single, was hit once and walked. Jason Chatwood singled and walked twice while Curtis Mazurkewich had a single and a walk. The Riggers open play in the Kamloops tournament Thursday at 3:30 p.m. (MDT) against the Northwest Honkers. They clash with Everett Friday at 12:45 p.m. and the host Kamloops squad Saturday at 10 a.m. They play Tuesday in St. Albert and return home July 24 against Fort Saskatchewan. The Red Deer Stags are at home Thursday when they host Fort Saskatchewan at 7:30 p.m. drode@reddeeradvocate.com

MLB: ‘We’re all equals here.’ “They came out. They swung the bats. Once they got the lead, started bringing those arms in their hand, and they got the job done.” Jones, retiring at the end of the season, also had one last All-Star moment, pinch hitting in the sixth and singling just past second baseman Ian Kinsler and into right field. Jones chuckled as the ball rolled through. “Whether you’re 19 or 40, we are all equals here,” Jones said during his pregame speech to the NL. Harper, at 19 the youngest position player in AllStar history, had a shaky start when he entered in the fifth. The heralded rookie, wearing shiny gold shoes, didn’t flash a Gold Glove and lost Mike Napoli’s routine fly to left in the lights, allowing it to drop behind him for a single. He then caught Kinsler’s basesloaded flyball to end the inning, earning cheers from the crowd of 40,933 at Kauffman Stadium, spruced up by a $250 million renovation that was completed three years ago. Harper did draw a walk and tagged up on a long fly, but later got himself hung up in a rundown and tagged out. Trout, among a record five All-Star rookies, had a nice showing against two very different pitchers. The Angels outfielder singled and stole a base against Dickey’s knuckleball, then drew a walk against Chapman and his 101 mph heat.

BRIEFS 10 local athletes selected for Alberta Summer Games Ten Red Deer athletes have been selected to compete for the Zone 4 inline team at the Alberta Summer Games, July 26-29 in Lethbridge. Jackson Obrone, Luke Coleman, Justin Anderson, Caden Shybunka, Kyle Jones, Dawson Weatherill, Kody Knash, Landon Mackenzie, Kirt Fortney and Abagael Thiessen are from Red Deer. The other two team members are Shane Frisneth of Sylvan Lake and Zachary Knight of Lacombe.

Local inline skaters play big role for Team Canada Five Central Albertans played a key role for Team Canada at the Amateur Athletic Junior Olympics International inline hockey tournament in California. Jordan Rathwell of Innisfail, Brett Frisneth and Brett White of Sylvan Lake and Bryce Lightbown and Conner Veroba of Red Deer helped the Canadian team beat a second Team Canada 6-5 in overtime in the gold medal final of the 16-year-old division. Frisneth played a key role in the victory as he came into goal after the second period and the team trailing 3-1. They took a 5-4 lead, only to see their opposition tie the game late with their goalie on the bench. It was the first time a Canadian team has won gold in the division. Meanwhile, Team Canada also captured the 18-year-old title. The Canadian squad included four Central Alberta players — Tanner Howe, Landon Hiebert, Clayton Swan and Joel Scheeler.

Jocelyn Alford shoots course record St. ALBERT — Jocelyn Alford of Calgary’s Earl Grey course shot a course record five-under par 67 to take the opening day lead in the 72-hole Sun Life Financial Ladies’ Amateur golf championship at the Sturgeon Valley Golf and Country Club Tuesday. Alford, a native of Red Deer, is one stroke ahead of Jennifer Ha of Calgary, who won the junior girls’ title last

“I’m going to remember this the rest of my life,” Trout said. Cain pitched the 22nd perfect game in big league history last month. He didn’t have to be perfect in this one, allowing one hit in two innings for the win. “For those guys to go out and score five runs in the first inning was definitely a little more relaxing for me,” he said. “But I still tried to stay focused.” Cain was followed by 10 relievers, with Jonathan Papelbon getting the last out with a runner on third base. Verlander had a puzzling outing. In games that count, he hasn’t allowed five runs in an inning since April 2010, according to STATS LLC. He became the first All-Star to give up a five-spot since Houston’s Roger Clemens in front of his hometown fans in 2004. “It was pretty difficult for me to get the ball down today,” said Verlander, who admitted he approached this differently than a regular-season start. In a 35-pitch inning, he threw five pitches clocked at 100 mph and another at 101. “But I had fun,” he said. “That’s why I don’t try to throw 100 in the first inning. But this is for the fans. It doesn’t usually work out too well for me.” A crowd clad in red, white and blue T-shirts cheered during pregame introductions for hometown star Billy Butler, who dropped his cap when he tried to wave it. Fans booed the New York Yankees’ Robinson Cano, who angered local fans when he bypassed Butler for Monday night’s Home Run Derby. Not since Game 7 of Kansas City’s 1985 World Series over the Cardinals had the baseball world descended on the Royals’ ballpark, a rare 1970s beauty known for its 322-foot-wide fountain in right and the 105-foot-high scoreboard topped by a crown.

Innisfail golfers lead the way ROCKY MOUNTAIN HOUSE — A pair from Innisfail led the way at the McLennan Ross/Sun Junior Golf Tour event at Pine Hills Golf Club Monday. Cody Phillips came in with a 77, one stroke ahead of Joey Ramsell. The pair also finished one-two in the 17-19 year-old division. Logan Gordon of the host club came in fourth with an 80 while Evan Zubot, also of Pine Hills, tied with Blaine Vanderhouten of Whitecourt at 83 and for fifth. They were also all in the 17-19 year-old division. Chandler McDowell of Red Deer was seventh overall with an 85, which placed him first in the 14-and-under division, where he finished one stroke ahead of Sikander Kaleka of Stony Plain and five up on Korbin Allan of Sylvan Lake. Jace Oulette of Innisfail was fourth with a 96 and Sam Beaver-Hawman of Pine Hills shot a 99 to tie for sixth. Jaxon Lynn of Sylvan Lake won the 15-16 year-old category with an 86 while Greg Poles of Innisfail shot a 95, Clay Zaleski of Caroline a 99 and Justin Gelowitz of Sylvan Lake a 100.

Chiefs capture gold The Red Deer Chiefs novice 3 team captured gold in the Central Alberta Lacrosse League and will compete in the provincials this weekend in Lacombe. Meanwhile, the Red Deer novice A team finished second in the Canada Day tournament in Calgary. It’s the first time in three years the team has won a medal at the tournament. The Red Deer Collin Barrow Rage are the premier U12 A girls’ softball team in the province. The Rage, who also won the Girls’ Prairie Softball League title, whipped the host Wetaskiwin Wild 16-3 in the gold medal game of the provincial championships during the weekend. The Rage reached the final with a 15-0 win over the Edmonton Warriors. In round-robin play the Red Deer squad beat the Wild 16-1, St. Albert 18-6 and the Warriors 21-6.

one out in the first and scored on a double to deep right by Braun, the reigning NL MVP. Verlander threw six straight balls during consecutive two-out walks to Carlos Beltran and Buster Posey. Wearing shiny gold-and-orange spikes for the occasion, Sandoval sent a drive off the base of the wall in the right-field corner for a 4-0 lead. He scored when Dan Uggla grounded to the shortstop hole and first baseman Prince Fielder failed to come up with Derek Jeter’s one-hop throw, leaving Uggla with an infield hit.

MONTREAL — Montreal Alouettes quarterback Anthony Calvillo returned to practice Tuesday, a day after skipping a session because of a bruised left shoulder. The 39-year-old pivot was hurt in Montreal’s 41-30 win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Friday night. Alouettes head coach Marc Trestman said Monday that his quarterback woke up with a sore shoulder and had tests

But Calvillo was back under centre at Als practice Tuesday with an eye on a Week 3 home date with the Calgary Stampeders. “I’m feeling good and I’m looking to play on Thursday against Calgary,” Calvillo said. The Alouettes and their veteran quarterback will be looking for revenge against the Stamps after Calgary demolished Montreal 38-10 in Week 1. Calvillo was picked off twice and held to just 16-of-31 passing for 174 yards and a touchdown.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS VILLIE-MORGON, France — The longtime problem of doping hit the Tour de France head-on when a French rider was arrested at his team hotel and suspended by his team Tuesday. Police made their move on the Tour’s first rest day in arresting Cofidis cyclist Remy Di Gregorio, with judicial officials saying two other people suspected of supplying the Frenchman with banned substances were also arrested — one along with the rider in Bourg-en-Bresse, and another in Marseille. The officials requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly as the investigation is ongoing. Cycling’s premier showcase event has long been dogged by doping scandals. Two-time winner Alberto Contador of Spain is sitting out this year to serve a doping ban from the 2010 race, while seven-time Tour champion Lance Armstrong has been charged with participating in a vast conspiracy by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.

Rowdy Hays leads Canadian sweep in Calgary THE CANADIAN PRESS CALGARY — Rowdy Hays of Rocky Mountain House led a Canadian podium sweep in steer wrestling during the fifth performance at the Calgary Stampede rodeo Tuesday.

He was followed by William Lowe of the U.S. with 83 points, while Dusty LaValley of Bezanson rounded out the top three with 82 points. Jesse Wright of the U.S. led an American sweep of saddle bronc with a score of 85.50 points. Jesse Bail was second with 83.50 points, while Cody Wright finished third with 82.50 points. Matt Shiozawa of the U.S. led another American dominated field in tiedown roping with a time of 6.9 seconds. Fellow countrymen Fred Whitfield (7.2 seconds) and Adam Gray (7.3 seconds) took second and third. Alwin Bouchard of Scandia was fourth with a time of 7.6 seconds.

A new pilot neighbourhood program is getting children back into the outdoors this summer. The City of Red Deer is encouraging parents to register their children, six to 12-yearolds, in Activ Kidz — a weeklong camp that promotes active living and sports, natural outdoor spaces, artistic expression and building connections in the community. Neighbourhood community development co-ordinator Pauline Mousseau said about 20 years ago, kids could go to their local park and for programming that was run by the city. “So we are seeing if there is interest in that again,” she said. The city received some funding from the province to run Activ Kidz programs that will happen at six locations in Red Deer. “It is a refresher on how to play in the neighbourhood and it is a real combination of things,” Mousseau said. The city has hired staff as part of its Recreation Department to run the programs. The first camp kicked off on Monday at the Morrisroe Activity Centre and goes until Friday. More Activ Kidz sites will be at the Downtown Recreation Centre, Riverside Meadows Activity Centre, Oriole Park Activity Centre, West Park Activity Centre and the Clearview Activity Centre. Children can only be registered in one program this summer at one location. The camps go from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The

Local officers thrilled to perform BY SUSAN ZIELINSKI ADVOCATE STAFF

Two officers raised in Red Deer who are performing in the RCMP Musical Ride at the Calgary Stampede are enjoying their time in the saddle. “It’s extremely iconic. You can’t feel any prouder than being a Mountie on horseback at the end of a show during the Canadian anthem,” RCMP Const. Brent Dobinson, 33, said after Tuesday’s performance. Riders are officers from detachments across Canada. They are police who have worked on all kinds of cases who now get to deal with the public on a “positive note” as part of the equestrian team known around the world, said Dobinson who is in his third year with the Musical Ride. Before joining the musical ride, Dobinson was stationed in Faust. “You never imagine when you join the RCMP that you’d be performing in a horse show for the 100th anniversary for the Calgary Stampede so it’s been a phenomenal experience,” said RCMP Const. Derek Quilley, 28, who is in his first year touring with the musical ride. “It’s great to come home and perform in front of friends and family.” Even though 20-minute performances happen at 1 p.m. in the present searing Alberta heat. “I’ll take a little bit of heat. It’s only a couple of hours. At least it’s not snowing or some-

Const. Brent Dobinson thing like that,” Quilley said with a laugh. Quilley worked for the RCMP in Surrey, B.C., before he trained for the ride. People at the Stampede can visit the officers and thoroughbreds at the stable before and after their daily performance. Both tourists and local Al-

bertans are stopping in to say hello. “They adore the horses. The horses are the real stars. We’re just kind of there,” joked Dobinson. And in Calgary, they know about horses. “It’s kind of nice to do shows where people are relatively knowledgeable about equita-

tion. They understand that what we’re doing isn’t natural for the horses and it does take a lot of work and a lot of practice.” As a venue, the Calgary Stampede is challenging with fireworks and other horses and riders involved in the opening ceremonies, he said. RCMP Supt. Marty Chesser, officer in charge of the musical ride, said both visitors and horses enjoy the time they spend together. “Right now as I speak, we’re bathing a couple horses and we probably have a couple hundred people in the stables. Horses are walking up and down and people get a chance to touch them and see them. Our horses are walking through like pets,” Chesser said. Dobinson said RCMP officers also take the opportunity to find out more about the musical ride and how to join. Earlier this season the RCMP Musical Ride was at the Diamond Jubilee for the Queen who calls them “her beloved Mounties,” he said. “Seeing the Queen at your show, it’s kind of a surreal experience,” Dobinson said. But his favourite performance was in Red Deer in 2010. “It was on my mom’s 60th birthday so it was really special.” The 2012 RCMP Musical Ride tour ends in October in Boston. Each year the ride helps raise $1 million for community charities and non-profits. szielinski@reddeeradvocate. com

Red Deer Regional Health Foundation’s Hospitals’ Lottery 2012 raised more than $625,000 to help fund pulmonary equipment for Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre. All 92,000 lottery tickets were sold. “This is the first year that we’ve ever had an official sellout, as well as the first year we’ve ever had an early bird sellout,” said Shannon Van Parys, Red Deer Regional Health Foundation spokesperson, on Tuesday. It was the fourth year the lottery has featured a grand prize home. Last year, 78 per cent of tickets were sold and the lottery raised $370,000. Pulmonary equipment will aid in diagnosis of cystic fibrosis, asthma, lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary

disease, as well as supporting all units of the hospital that require the regular use of respiratory equipment. Floyd and Doris Anderson of Sylvan Lake won the grand prize, a 2,800-square-foot home in Red Deer, valued at $654,554. It was one of 460 prizes drawn for the foundation’s big fundraising event. Sylvan Lake’s Glenn Alward, who works in Red Deer hospital’s information technology department, won a 2012 Dodge Challenger or Caravan, valued at $36,865. Jerry Costache of Drumheller won the choice to take either a 2012 Ford Explorer or a 2012 Ford Mustang, valued at $30,028. Red Deer area residents Wayne Eastcott and Guy Dorval were splitting the early bird prize — a 2012 Dodge Sport crew cab truck and a 2012 Crusader fifth wheel, or $57,500 cash. The truck and fifth wheel package is worth $92,232.

BRIEFS Driver of gold Jeep Cherokee may be witness to downtown shooting

Fires will be set on purpose in part of the Clearwater Forest from July 12 to 19. Barry Shellian, wildfire ranger and information officer for the Clearwater Forest Area, announced on Monday that a prescribed burn is scheduled for a 465-acre site at Ram Mountain, located west of Rocky Mountain House and southeast of Nordegg. The burn is a joint project between the government of Alberta and the Alberta Wild Sheep Foundation, aimed at enhancing habitat, encouraging a more diverse landscape and increasing knowledge about fire on the landscape and its benefits to the ecosystem, Shellian said. Ram Mountain is notable for being the site of the longest-running bighorn sheep study in the world, beginning in 1971, he said. Researchers from Alberta, Quebec, England, France and the United States have been gathering and analyzing data on sheep genetics and reproductive success. The study has provided valuable information for wildlife managers and provides the provincial government with input related to the management of bighorn sheep, said Shellian.

Buffalo Lake open house Saturday Two land use planning options around Buffalo Lake will be brought to the public at an open house on Saturday. County of Stettler director of planning and development Johan van der Bank says the county and the summer Villages of Rochon Sands and White Sands are working on a Buffalo Lake South Shore Plan. The plan would provide policy framework on development of the lakeshore. “We narrowed down the options to basically two and hopefully we can proceed from there to wrap up a final land use option, which we hope to take through the statutory bylaw reading in August or September,” van der Bank said. Van der Bank said the plan calls for the preservation of the natural landscape through design principles. “So a developer couldn’t come in and clearcut the land. We want them to use the natural vegetation to give character to a subdivision and this might mean there is less land for development,” he said. Public access to Buffalo Lake, 80 km northeast of Red Deer, will also be discussed at the open house, which starts at 10 a.m. at the Rochon Sands Community Hall. For more information, visit www.stettlercounty. ca or contact 403-7424441.

Red Deer City RCMP want to speak with the male driver of a gold Jeep Cherokee who may have witnessed the downtown incident in which a 29-year-old Red Deer man was shot last week. Police believe the driver may have valuable information about the shooting on July 4. The Jeep was parked on the south side of 54th Street at the time of the shooting around 7:30 p.m. The driver is asked to call the Red Deer City RCMP at 403-343-5575. On July 4, police responded to a complaint of gun shots in the area around 49th Avenue and 54th Street. An altercation between two groups of people is believed to have sparked the incident. One of the groups fled on foot south on 54th Street, past the Red Deer Mohawk gas station, followed by the victim and three other men. Several shots were fired and a 29-year-old man was shot in the torso. The victim and three other men left in a gold or beige coloured Chrysler 300, which was parked on the north side of the Mohawk. The victim was dropped off at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre to be treated for non-life threatening injuries. He was later transferred to a hospital in Edmonton. He has since been released from hospital. Police continue to investigate. If you have any information about this incident, call Red Deer City RCMP at 403-3435575 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.tipsubmit.com.

A street in Red Deer’s downtown core will be renamed so that emergency responders can find it more easily. On Monday, Red Deer city council approved renaming 44th Street Crescent to 43A Street to ensure timely emergency response to businesses. The street is located between 54th Avenue and 55th Avenue. Recently, Red Deer Emergency Services had difficulty responding to 4320 and 4324 54th Ave.. These addresses are misleading because they are directly north of 44th Street Crescent, not 43rd Street, causing first responders to believe they had passed the properties. There are no properties addressed off this segment of 44th Street Crescent. The cost to make the changes will be under $100, to replace two street signs.

City establishes in-house legal team to replace longtime contract lawyers

FREE!!

Two lawyers will be on staff at Red Deer City Hall starting next year. City council initially approved hiring one lawyer, but since then administration has requested to have two lawyers on staff. Red Deer civic leaders approved on Monday the addition of an associate city solicitor position to the already approved city solicitor and legal assistant positions. The extra lawyer would be accommodated within the anticipated annual budget of $562,250, so no additional dollars were being requested.

Council was told that more money could be requested, though, for additional activities to make the transition from the current outside legal team. The city did a review of legal services. Council decided last November the city should hire its own lawyer to improve access and accountability with municipal staff. The internal legal services unit would come on stream once the current contract with Chapman Riebeek ends on Dec. 31, 2012. The city has used the services of this law firm for more than 50 years. But there would still be need to tender out for specialized services, council agreed.

Clash over leadership RIM EXECUTIVES, SHAREHOLDERS AT ODDS OVER COMPANY’S DIRECTION BY THE CANADIAN PRESS

RESEARCH IN MOTION

WATERLOO, Ont. — Shareholders of Research In Motion expressed their frustration Tuesday with the company’s delayed product launch and eroding market share, with some calling for a major upheaval in its leadership. RIM’s annual meeting served as the first time since last summer that most of the company’s investors have had an opportunity to speak directly to RIM’s executive team, including new chief executive Thorsten Heins. Several came with a clear message, including one shareholder who took to the microphone first to offer his best wishes for Heins, before turning his attention to the board members who have helped guide the company since its heyday as the dominant smartphone. “They’ve let this problem that RIM faces . . . get out of hand so badly before they did something about it,” he said.

“I don’t think, personally, that any of the old directors of the company should sit here today,” he added, suggesting that RIM undergo a major upheaval akin to the recent shake up at Canadian Pacific Railway. The crowd of about 300 people, many shareholders, broke into applause after the comments. However, despite the vocal criticism, shareholders still re-elected all of the board nominees, though John Richardson had support withheld by 30.2 per cent of the votes. Barbara Stymiest, the company’s new chairwoman, defended RIM’s leadership, while assuring shareholders that more changes were coming to the board. “We have a slate of 10 (board members), four of which have been there less than a year,” she said in an interview after the meeting.

OIL PRICES DROP BELOW $84 ON CHINA DATA NEW YORK — Oil prices tumbled Tuesday on further signs of an economic slowdown in China and after the government of Norway intervened to end a strike that threatened North Sea oil production. Benchmark U.S. crude fell by US$2.08, or 2.4 per cent, to finish at $83.91 per barrel. Brent crude lost $2.35 to close at $97.97 per barrel in London. China’s June imports increased by about 6 per cent. That is down from May’s rate and worse than analysts had expected. Growth in exports slowed as well. China is the world’s second biggest oil consumer behind the U.S. and if its economy slows it won’t need to use as much energy. “Crude imports into the country last month fell 14 per cent from May to a sevenmonth low,” independent oil analyst Jim Ritterbusch said. Traders will closely watch China’s second quarter GDP and industrial production numbers, due out at the end of the week, he said. The threat of an industry shutdown in Norway ended Monday night.

WEAK RECOVERY CREATING A LOST GENERATION OF UNEMPLOYED YOUTH: OECD OTTAWA — The OECD is urging governments to take swift action to address stubbornly high unemployment, warning the slow recovery is creating conditions that could scar youth and some workers the rest of their lives. The Paris-based think-tank says the social costs of high levels of youth unemployment in some advanced nations are already large, but the situation threatens to transform from a cyclical to a structural problem. The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development says governments must do all they can to avoid a lost generation of youth who become disconnected from labour markets. Not all countries have been affected, but some, like Greece and Spain, have seen youth unemployment rise to above 50 per cent. — The Canadian Press

“Part of the dynamics in managing any board is managing smooth transitions, and we will continue to do that going forward. “It’s an important process, we take it seriously, and we’re working very hard with a lot of potential new directors,” she added. At the meeting, others turned their attention to Heins, who took over the top position in January from co-CEOs Jim Balsillie and Mike Lazaridis. One shareholder questioned his pay package, which could fetch Heins between $8 million and $12 million if he exits the company. Vic Alboini, an activist shareholder and chief executive of Jaguar Financial, said unfortunately Heins has lost credibility. “Every now and then there are statements to the effect that things are fine, there’s no need for change,” he said. “The reality is, look at the share price, things are not fine. There are a lot of shareholders that are experiencing a lot of pain.”

‘WTO IS DEATH FOR RUSSIA’

Construction 38% ahead of last year BY ADVOCATE STAFF With half the pages of the 2012 calendar now torn off, residential construction in Red Deer is 38 per cent ahead of its pace from a year ago. Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. reported on Tuesday that there were 314 housing starts in the city from January to June, up from 228. Most of the increase related to construction of multi-family projects, with 150 units in such buildings started prior to July 1, up from 70 during the same period in 2011. In the case of single-detached homes, construction starts during the first six months of 2012 numbered 164, as compared with 158 the previous year. Elsewhere, housing starts in Sylvan Lake during the first half of this year totalled 104, up nearly 41 per cent from the 74 starts for the same period of 2011. However, single-detached projects in the town slid to 53 from 72, while multi-family units jumped to 51 from two. Lacombe also experienced a big increase in housing starts for the January-to-June period, going to 132 from 48 a year earlier. But construction in that city has also been heavily weighted toward multi-family projects, with the six-month tally in this category at 132 units, up from 48. Housing starts on single-detached houses went to 32 from 28. Among Alberta’s biggest urban centres, Calgary experienced the greatest year-overyear growth, with total starts during the six-month period rising nearly 100 per cent. Medicine Hat jumped 96 per cent, Grande Prairie followed at 94 per cent and Edmonton posted a 35 per cent increase. Housing starts in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo during the Januaryto-June period were 34 per cent lower this year than last, while the figure for Lethbridge slid 41 per cent. For the month of June alone, there were 58 housing starts in Red Deer, up 21 per cent from the same month in 2011, said CMHC. This total included 42 single-detached houses, up from 34; and 16 multifamily units, an improvement from 14. In the other big urban centres in Alberta, June residential construction starts jumped by 317 per cent in Medicine Hat, 197 per cent in Grande Prairie, 65 per cent in the Calgary area and 46 per cent in Edmonton. In Lethbridge they fell 30 per cent and in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo the drop was 74 per cent.

Home sales still outpacing ’11 BY ADVOCATE STAFF Home sales in Central Alberta at the midway mark of 2012 were up nearly 18 per cent from the six-month tally last year. Multiple Listing Service statistics released by the Central Alberta Realtors Association on Tuesday indicate that 2,224 homes in the area were sold from January to June of this year, as compared with 1,889 for the same period in 2011. The city of Red Deer accounted for 957 of this year’s sales, up 17 per cent from 819 in 2011; while the surrounding area combined for 1,267 sales, an 18 per cent improvement over the 1,070 transactions recorded for the same period last year. For June alone, there were 188 home sales in Red Deer, up 11 per cent from the 170 in that month in 2011. The June tally for the outlying region was 257, a 21 per cent jump from last June’s figure of 213. The average selling price in Red Deer last month was $298,942, as compared with

REAL ESTATE $290,374 a year earlier. Outside the city, the average price in June was $256,685, down from the June 2011 averge of $263,311. In May of this year, there were 198 MLS sales in Red Deer with an average price of $320,442. For the same month in the surrounding region, there were 262 sales at an average price of $252,817. Average prices include homes of all types, and may not be representative of market trends. During the first six months of 2012, the Central Alberta Realtors Association processed 1,583 residential listings in Red Deer, including 293 in June. That was down three per cent from the 1,626 listings for the same period in 2011. For the surrounding area, 3,245 home listings were processed, with 596 of these in June. That marked a two per cent decline from 3,303 in 2011.

Alberta, Scotland share common interest in energy SCOTTISH DEVELOPMENT EXECUTIVE EXPLORING OPPORTUNITIES HERE SINCE FEBRUARY BY HARLEY RICHARDS ADVOCATE BUSINESS EDITOR Haggis, bagpipes and kilts. Such cultural icons might spring to mind when Albertans reflect on Scotland. Adnan Ahmad would prefer they think about energy, agriculture and life sciences. Ahmad is a development executive with Scottish Development International, the international arm of the Scottish government’s economic development agency. He’s been in Calgary since February, about two months before Scotland’s second SDI office in Canada opened there. The first was in Toronto. “Alberta is certainly one of the growing provinces in Canada, and we recognize that,” said Ahmad during a visit to Red Deer on Monday. “The majority of the Canadian investors who are in Scotland are from Alberta.”

This reflects Alberta’s and Scotland’s common interest in energy development, he said. “Around 20 to 25 per cent of production in the North Sea is by Canadian companies.” Conversely, there are about 14 Scottish companies operating in Alberta. Most of these are energy-related and located in Calgary. Ahmad described his role as two-fold: helping Scottish companies do business in Canada and encouraging Canadian investment in Scotland. In the latter case, his office can provide market information, arrange for partners, help with human resources, and assist with research and development. “So really, from the first point in getting information to actually establishing themselves in Scotland, we assist them through the process.”

There are about a half-dozen sectors that Scotland’s economic development agency is focusing on when it comes to Canada, said Ahmad. In the case of Western Canada, which he is responsible for, the key ones are energy, agriculture and life sciences. There are compelling reasons for Canadian companies looking to expand beyond North America to consider Scotland, said Ahmad. The two countries use the same language and have strong historic ties. The Great Britain country is also a gateway to Europe, as well as to the Middle East and Africa, has a skilled and experienced workforce, is cost-competitive and has a reputation for innovation when it comes to oil and gas development. Ahmad credits this last attribute to the challenging nature of North Sea production.

MARKETS CLOSE TORONTO — The Toronto stock market fell about one per cent Tuesday as further indications of a slowing Chinese economy helped extinguish early optimism arising from a better than expected earnings report from U.S. aluminum giant Alcoa Inc. The S&P/TSX composite index dropped 122.45 points to 11,512.22 its fourth consecutive loss, and the TSX Venture Exchange dipped 12.62 points to 1,199.36. The commodity-sensitive Canadian dollar slipped 0.32 of a cent to 97.79 cents US amid sliding oil and copper prices. U.S. markets also lost steam even as Alcoa reported adjusted earnings of six cents per share, which beat the consensus estimate by a penny. Revenue dropped nine per cent to US$5.96 billion, mainly because of weak prices for aluminum in the slowing global economy. Alcoa’s performance reflects broader economic trends because aluminum is used in a wide range of products from automobiles to beverage cans. The company’s reports are also know for kicking off the start to earnings seasons south of the border. Despite the showing, expectations are generally low for second-quarter earnings. Big American multinationals are feeling pressure from a greenback that ramped up as the European debt crisis worsened in the quarter along with slowing economic conditions around the globe. The Dow Jones industrials fell 83.17 points to 12,653.12. The Nasdaq composite index was down 29.44 points to 2,902.33 and the S&P 500 index declined 10.99 points to 1,341.47. Traders got another reminder of the fragility of the economic recovery after China’s trade growth plunged in June, hurt by weak U.S. and European demand. Import growth fell by half from May’s level to 6.3 per cent while export growth declined to 11.3 per cent from May’s 15.3 per cent. Growth in the world’s secondlargest economy has tumbled to its lowest level since the 2008. That is bad news for companies and investors looking to relatively strong Chinese growth to shore up global demand as the United States and Europe struggle. In particular, it’s also a negative for the resource-heavy Toronto stock market and the price of oil and metals. Strong Chinese demand for commodities boosted prices for crude and copper and supported resource stocks on the TSX earlier in the year. But crude has fallen from US$106 in May, copper has tumbled 11.6 per cent and the TSX has fallen almost six per cent in 2 1/2 months. The Toronto market now is down about 3.7 per cent year to date. “Any reason for being optimistic was China, India, Brazil, probably Russia, (other countries) in Southeast Asia,” said Jim Muir, director at Fraser Mackenzie. “And it just looks like that’s all slowing. So the question is, is it just a normal slowdown and then they get going again? That’s our only hope in my estimation.” Commodity prices fell following the release of the Chinese data with the August crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange down $2.08 to US$83.91 a barrel. Crude prices also fell after Norway intervened to halt a labour dispute that threatened its North Sea production. The energy sector lost almost two per cent as Canadian Natural Resources (TSX:CNQ) gave back 48 cents to C$25.84 and Cenovus Energy (TSX:CVE) declined 66 cents to $32.25. The base metals sector shed 2.3 per cent with August copper off three to cents at US$3.40

a pound. HudBay Minerals (TSX:HBM) was down 30 cents to C$7.79 while Teck Resources (TSX:TCK.B) fell 51 cents to $30.57. The gold sector was off about 2.6 per cent as bullion gave up early gains to climb down $9.30 to US$1,579.80 an ounce. Barrick Gold Corp. (TSX:ABX) faded 99 cents to C$36.37. The financial group stepped back 0.35 per cent and Scotiabank (TSX:BNS) gave back 48 cents to $52.50. Research in Motion (TSX:RIM) shares were off 36 cents or 4.62 per cent at $7.44 as shareholders gathered for the BlackBerry maker’s annual meeting. Chief executive Thorsten Heins noted that there have already been major changes this year and promised that “there will be more to come as we work to turn around the company’s performance.” The industrials group was down 0.46 per cent with heavy equipment dealer Finning International (TSX:FTT) off 58 cents to $23.09. Shares in transportation giant Bombardier Inc (TSX:BBD.B) were up one cent to $4.04. Its subsidiary, Bombardier Aerospace, says Latvia-based Air Baltic Corp. has signed a letter of intent to acquire 10 of its next generation CS300 aircraft and take purchase rights on a further 10 of the passenger jets. In other earnings news, drug store chain Jean Coutu Group (TSX:PJC.A) says unusual gains on its U.S. Rite Aid holdings as well as improved revenue helped quarterly earnings soar eight fold to $397.4 million and its shares rose two cents to $14.77. Quebec-based convenience store and fuel station chain operator Alimentation CoucheTard Inc. (TSX:ATD.B) reported quarterly net profit of US$117.8 million or 65 cents a share, up $53.3 million or 82.6 per cent from a year ago. Revenue for the quarter was up 28 per cent to US$6.06 billion and its shares ran up $1.66 to C$45.90.

Investigator comes down hard on Enbridge for its handling of Michigan oil spill BY THE CANADIAN PRESS Enbridge Inc. handled a crude pipeline spill in Michigan like “Keystone Kops,” the chairwoman of a U.S. investigator said Tuesday as environmental groups called for greater scrutiny of future projects. A probe by the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board concluded Enbridge did not fix a defect on the pipeline when it was discovered five years earlier and control room staff responded poorly when Line 6B ruptured on July 25, 2010. “Learning about Enbridge’s poor handling of the rupture, you can’t help but think of the Keystone Kops,” said NTSB chair Deborah Hersman, referring to the incompetent policemen in silent films. “Why didn’t they recognize what was happening? What took so long?” Enbridge (TSX:ENB) has billions in new pipeline projects and expansions in the works, including contentious plans to ship crude to the West Coast and to Central Canada. Critics of the company’s proposed Northern Gateway pipeline between Alberta and the B.C. coast as well as expansion to ship more Alberta crude eastward seized on the NTSB report as evidence the company should not be allowed to build those projects. Hersman said Enbridge knew about a corrosion problem on Line 6B in 2005 — well before it ruptured and caused the most expensive onshore spill in U.S. history. “Yet, for five years they did nothing to address the

STORIES FROM PAGE C3

corrosion or cracking at the rupture site — and the problem festered.” The NTSB said it took 17 hours and 19 minutes for Enbridge staff to respond to alarms signalling a problem on the line in southern Michigan. And when they did respond, it was only after a worker with a local natural gas utility informed them of the spill. Instead of stopping the flow, Enbridge staff misinterpreted the alarms and twice pumped more crude into the ruptured pipeline — representing about 81 per cent of the total spill, Hersman said. More than three million litres of crude oil spilled into nearby wetlands, Talmadge Creek and the Kalamazoo River. The total cleanup cost more than $800 million — more than five times the next most expensive onshore oil spill, Hersman said, citing figures from Enbridge and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. She said poor regulatory oversight by the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration was also to blame. “Delegating too much authority to the regulated to assess their own system risks and correct them is tantamount to the fox guarding the hen house,” she said. But Hersman said PHMSA did take the “necessary and important step” of proposing a $3.7-million fine against Enbridge last week. In a release, Enbridge CEO Pat Daniel said the employees involved at the time of the spill were “trying to do the right thing.” In late May, the company said it had hired J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and RBC Capital Markets to evaluate various strategies, including potential partnerships and licensing.

‘Million Dollar Quartet’ jam likely impossible today BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — On December 4, 1956, rock ’n’ roll icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins gathered for what turned into an impromptu jam session at Sun Records in Memphis. The legendary event, dubbed the “Million Dollar Quartet,” was one that likely wouldn’t be possible today, says the co-author of a stage musical about the evening. “You’d like to think so but these days it seems like superstar jam sessions are usually midwifed by lawyers and managers and accountants and record label guys, you know?” music journalist Colin Escott mused in a recent telephone interview from Tennessee. “The idea of stars coming together just for the pleasure of making music instead of it being, like, a media-streamed event, that seems to happen less and less and less these days.” Dancap Productions is presenting the Canadian premiere of Million Dollar Quartet, directed by Eric Schaeffer, from July 10 to July 29 at the Toronto Centre for the Arts. The show, in which the stars also sing and play instruments, details how the four young musicians united that evening for the only time in their careers at Sun Records’ storefront studio.

Escott said it all began when Perkins, the rockabilly artist behind the hit Blue Suede Shoes, went to Sun studios for a recording session. Record executive Sam Phillips invited Lewis, who had just arrived in Memphis, to come in as a pianist on the project. Presley, who had left Sun about a year earlier, was back in Memphis after a trip to Hollywood and decided to drop in to see Phillips. When he realized there was a recording session going on, he called Cash’s house and asked him to pop over. Phillips, seeing much potential in the gathering, then called his pal at the Memphis Press-Scimitar and told him to come over with a photographer. “It just seemed to encapsulate so much about what made that early rock ’n’ roll so special,” said Escott, who wrote a sidebar about the jam session in the book Good Rockin’ Tonight: Sun Records and the Birth of Rock ’n’ Roll. “It was the young guys kind of making it up as they went along, drawing on this pool of shared love of gospel music and blues and country music and pop, and just completely, unselfconsciously making something completely new out of it.” The foursome jammed on about 27 tunes together using just one microphone, which may explain why Cash’s voice isn’t heard on the recordings, said Escott.

Upcoming Jackson documentary has a ‘treasure chest’ of unseen material BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK — Spike Lee worked with Michael Jackson and considered him a friend, but the director says even he learned a lot combing through footage of the icon for a planned documentary about the singer’s Bad album. Lee calls it a “treasure chest of findings.” “We have footage in this documentary that no one’s ever seen, stuff that Michael shot himself, behind-the-scenes stuff,” he said Monday. “We had complete access to the vaults of Michael Jackson. . . . He wrote 60 demos for the Bad record. Only 11 made it. So we got to hear a lot of that stuff, too, so it was just a great experience.” He added: “You don’t have to be a Michael Jackson-head to enjoy this.”

Lee’s documentary, which does not yet have an official title, will be part of a flood of material to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Bad album, Jackson’s follow-up to Thriller that included hits like the title track, Smooth Criminal, The Way You Make Me Feel and more. The album is being rereleased Sept.18 with additional tracks, a DVD and other bonus material; Lee’s film is due to come out later this year, but no date has been set. Besides Jackson’s artistry, Lee said the documentary will show a more personal side of the late legend. “He had a great sense of humour, and he was funny — so you’ll see a lot of that stuff,” he said. Lee interviewed people ranging from Kanye West to Mariah Carey to L.A. Reid to Sheryl Crow, who was Jackson’s background singer on the Bad tour.

Defiant Hank Williams Jr. returns with ‘Old School, New Rules’ BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NASHVILLE — Fired up after laying down a new song in 45 minutes flat, Hank Williams Jr. emerges from the sound booth with a big, toothy grin wrapped around an unlit cigar. “That’s the most fun I’ve had in a long time, cousin,” Williams says before letting go with a bellowing laugh that spreads infectiously around the room. And it’s true. Williams has been having a rip-roaring good time since ESPN dropped his popular Monday Night Football theme song nine months ago, igniting a debate over freedom of speech that brought all of Williams’ rowdy friends to his defence — plus an unlikely coterie of defenders from all over the political spectrum. The dustup helped reinvigorate Williams creatively and the result is Old School, New Rules, his first new album in three years. The 12-song record features guest appearances from Merle Haggard and Brad Paisley and a healthy dose of Williams’ world view. Buoyed by the support he’s received, Williams thinks he may have penned a classic or two. “I remember when I had big hits of mine — you know before you get to the studio,” Williams said. “I mean you just know. Some guys told me when they go to the ballpark, they know they’re going to put one out of the park. Maybe they’ll feel good and they know who the pitcher is. And I have really fed off of the mood of the people.” Williams found widespread support after his tiff with ESPN. It started when Williams was asked a political question while promoting one of his father’s projects on Fox and Friends. He used an analogy comparing cozy relations between President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner with a hypothetical relationship between Adolf Hitler and Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He was swiftly criticized for the comments and ESPN ended up dropping Williams’ altered hit All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight as its MNF theme song. Williams claims victory in the showdown. Fans bought more than 250,000 T-shirts in support of his right to free speech, and Williams believes a drop in MNF ratings after the song was pulled has a little something to do with his supporters. His reappearance in the national discussion also seemed to reinvigorate his place in the country music world. His father, the now deified Hank Williams, occupies an important place in music history and often overshadows the accomplishments of his descendants. But Williams Jr. also occupies an extremely important role and in many ways his fingerprints are far more identifiable on the modern country sound.

Filipino’s mourn passing of ‘King of Comedy’ Dolphy MANILA, Philippines — The Philippines’ “King of Comedy,” the performer fondly called Dolphy by generations of Filipinos, has died. Rodolfo Vera Quizon Sr. was 83. He died late Monday at Makati Medical Center of multiple organ failure and complications from pneumonia, according to an email from the hospital where he had been treated. He also suffered from kidney failure. Philippine government officials, fellow movie and TV celebrities and common folk heaped praise on Quizon, who shot to fame for portraying gay roles and odd characters. One of the late actor’s sons, Eric Quizon, read a family statement before a huddle of TV cameras and journalists, thanking millions of Filipinos for supporting his father and asking for prayers. “Heaven is a happier place with him there,” said

Niall Leonard, husband of ‘Grey’ author James, has novel out soon NEW YORK — Let Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James write about sex. Her husband has a thriller for young adults coming out in the U.S. this fall. Random House Inc. imprint Delacorte Press announced Monday it will release Niall Leonard’s Crusher on Sept. 11. Last month, Leonard reached an agreement with Random House in the U.K. to publish his book in England, also on Sept. 11. Leonard is a TV screenwriter whose credits include Wire in the Blood. His novel is the first of three planned books. It tells of a teen dropout seeking his father’s killer. James has been the world’s hottest writer for months. Vintage Books says since the spring her erotic Fifty Shades trilogy has sold nearly 20 million copies in the U.S. alone.

Run-DMC to reunite, perform together for the first time since 2002 NEW YORK — They haven’t performed together in over a decade, but the surviving members of RunDMC are set to reunite this fall at the Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, Texas. Joseph Simmons, now known as Rev. Run, and Darryl “DMC” McDaniels retired the group after their DJ, Jam Master Jay, was killed in 2002. But it was announced Tuesday that the band will be among the performers for the Nov. 2-4 event.

Peter O’Toole retires from show biz, says it’s time to ‘chuck in the sponge’ LOS ANGELES — Peter O’Toole is retiring from show business, saying he no longer has the heart for it and that it’s time to “chuck in the sponge.” O’Toole, who turns 80 on Aug. 2, said in a statement Tuesday that his career on stage and screen fulfilled him emotionally and financially and put him in the company of fine people. But the eight-time Oscar nominee says the time is right to quit and that he’s bidding the actor’s life a dry-eyed farewell. O’Toole shot to screen stardom 50 years ago in the title role of “Lawrence of Arabia,” which brought him his first Oscar nomination. Among actors, he holds the record for Oscar futility, never winning on any of his eight nominations. He received an honorary Oscar in 2003, though.

Channing Tatum plans to turn male stripper film into a musical LONDON — After being rather exposed in Magic Mike the movie, Channing Tatum is teasing his audience with the possibility of Magic Mike the musical. The 32-year-old American actor is working on plans to turn the big screen stripper story into a theatre production. Tatum, a former stripper himself, says he hasn’t “cracked what the actual show is” yet, but the one thing he knows is that he wants the musical version to be “very interactive.” The film, directed by Steven Soderbergh, is about the exploits of a group of male strippers at a club in Tampa, Florida. Tatum was in London with co-star Matthew McConaughey for the European premiere of the movie on Tuesday evening.

Many of his comedy flicks were produced by his own movie firm, RVQ Productions, which he set up in the 1960s. President Benigno Aquino III said Quizon was a kind man who represented the Filipino everyman and gave his countrymen “a reason to smile for the daily happenings” in their lives. Ex-President Joseph Estrada, a former actor, says Quizon should receive the prestigious National Artist award. Quizon had never been married but bore children with a number of women. Some of his children also entered the movies, with a few following in his footsteps as a comedian. As a young boy, he worked as a labourer, watching comedy stage shows before he himself became immensely popular. Philippine presidential candidates had sought his backing during elections to endear themselves to his massive following.

PROVINCIAL CHAMPIONS

Girlfriend forgives abuser Dear Annie: I’ve been dating “Dayna” for eight months, and we moved in together three months ago. We fell in love from the moment we met. I’m normally a calm guy. However, two months ago I MITCHELL made a mistake. I went out & SUGAR drinking with friends and was dropped off at home so drunk that I briefly blacked out. I got into an argument with Dayna and apparently gave her a black eye. I spent a month in jail on domestic battery charges. To my surprise, she did not break up with me, although we no longer live together. We each moved back in with our parents. I know our relationship was moving too fast, but I believe in my heart that Dayna is the one for me. On the night of the incident, I had so much alcohol in my system that I’m pretty sure I would have fought with anyone who crossed my path. Currently, I am enrolled in court-ordered classes on domestic violence. Although I know I don’t deserve her anymore, Dayna is still by my side, and I feel blessed for that. I made a promise to God while in jail to put the bottle down for good. I lost my job because of it, and it could have cost me my girlfriend. I’m not that person anymore. Alcoholism runs in my family. I’m a 27-year-old college-educated guy who dealt with problems by drinking because that’s what my family did. I’m determined to break the cycle and have made the first step toward that goal. I see life differently now, and all I want to do is make Dayna happy again. I know it will take time, but I’m determined to make it right with her and her family. I love my girlfriend and hope to marry her one day. How do we bounce back from this horrific nightmare? — Sad and Depressed Dear Sad: You need to rebuild Dayna’s trust. We are glad that you acknowledge your drinking problem and have taken steps to overcome it so you don’t repeat your mistakes. Dayna needs to know that you will remain sober over the long haul, through good and bad, and this takes much more time. Find a job, get your own place, live a solid life, and prove to Dayna that you are a man she can respect.

Windy debate to be resolved? OTTAWA TO STUDY POSSIBLE HEALTH EFFECTS GENERATED BY WIND TURBINES BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — Opponents of wind farms are hailing Health Canada’s decision to study the possible links between noise from the giant turbines and adverse health effects reported by people living near them. Federal Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq announced Tuesday that Ottawa will conduct the study, which “is in response to questions from residents living near wind farms about possible health effects of low-frequency noise generated by wind turbines.” The study will initially focus on residents in 2,000 dwellings selected from eight to 12 wind-turbine installations across Canada. Sherri Lange, CEO of North American Platform Against Wind Power (NA-PAW), said she is encouraged to see the federal government is finally undertaking a study on the safety of wind turbines. “I hope it will be independent and at an arm’s length” from the government, said Lange, whose opposition to wind farms began with a fight to stop a proposed installation of the energy-producing towers in Lake Ontario, offshore from her east Toronto neighbourhood. Exposure to low-frequency noise and vibrations created by wind turbines can lead to sleep disorders, headaches, depression, anxiety and even blood pressure changes, she said. “The house vibrates, it becomes like a guitar. The noise and the vibration enters the home and it actually increases the effect.” Lange said she hopes researchers conducting the study will listen to the stories of people, many of them farmers, who say they are suffering ill health as a result of living in close proximity to wind turbines. “During the process of the study, they need to go and talk to these people as I have,” she said. “These are ordinary, hard-working people. They would not make up these stories in a million years. They’re trying to protect their land, their homes, their children, the legacy that they’ve built and received from their families.” Health Canada said researchers will conduct faceto-face interviews with residents, as well as taking physical measurements such as blood pressure, and measuring noise levels both inside and outside some

Good or bad? Health Canada hopes to settle the debate on whether wind farms are a healthy solution to alternative energy. of the homes. In Ontario, Conservative energy critic Vic Fedeli responded to Ottawa’s announcement by calling for an immediate moratorium on further wind power development in the province. “The fact the federal government feels this study is necessary is reason enough to put a halt to any more wind turbines being built in Ontario right now,” Fedeli said in a release. “I’ve been to dozens of town halls across the province and have heard the painful stories of those who’ve reported these adverse health effects,” Fe-

deli added. During the last legislative session, the Conservatives put forth a proposal calling for a moratorium on wind turbines, but it was rejected by the Liberal government and NDP. Health Canada said the proposed health-effects study design is posted on its website for a 30-day public comment period, and feedback will be reviewed by the committee putting together the study. www.hc-sc.gc.ca/ewh-semt/consult/—2012/wind—turbine-eoliennes/index- eng.php.

Egyptian parliament defies closure order BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CAIRO, Egypt — Egypt’s Islamist-dominated parliament opened a new front in the country’s leadership showdowns Tuesday by meeting in defiance of orders that disbanded the chamber and brought President Mohammed Morsi in conflict with both the powerful military and the highest court. The session was brief — lasting just five minutes — and suggested that lawmakers sought more of a symbolic stance rather than a full-scale backlash against rulings that invalidated the chamber over apparent irregularities in Egypt’s first elections since the fall of Hosni Mubarak 17 months ago. But it further nudged Egypt deeper into a potential power struggle between Morsi and military chiefs, who have vowed to uphold a ruling by the Supreme constitutional Court that led to parliament being dissolved last month. Morsi countered with his own decree ordering the 508-seat chamber to reconvene. The constitutional court fired back Tuesday, ruling that Morsi’s decision had no legal grounding. For the moment, all sides appear to be moving with some caution in acknowledgment of Egypt’s volatile backdrop: The military with the power to clamp down on dissent but without widespread support on the streets where Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood is strong. Security forces made no attempt to block lawmakers as they arrived at the parliament building in central Cairo. Later, thousands joined a pro-Morsi rally in Cairo’s Tahrir Square as riot police kept their distance. News of the court’s ruling against Morsi was greeted with chants of “batel,” or illegitimate,. In the background, meanwhile, a special panel is working on Egypt’s post-Mubarak constitution and an all-out battle between the rising Brotherhood and the country’s old guard establishment could send the entire process into a tailspin. The crisis atmosphere has grown steadily since Morsi issued an order Sunday to reconvene the legislature. His executive order said it was revoking the military’s June 15 order to disband the chamber based on the previous ruling by the Supreme constitutional Court. The court said a third of the chamber’s members were elected illegally by allowing candidates from political parties to contest seats set aside for independent candidates. A lower court also looking into complaints against Morsi’s order postponed its decision until July 17. Morsi’s presidential decree also called for new parliamentary elections after a new constitution is adopted, which is not expected before the end of the year. In effect, it puts the current parliament in a sort of caretaker status — raising further speculation

that Morsi could be buying time with the defiance. The dispute over the fate of parliament has divided the nation just as Egyptians hoped for a semblance of stability after the tumult since the Arab Spring ouster of Mubarak. Egypt has seen a dramatic surge in crime, deadly street protests, a faltering economy and seemingly non-stop strikes, sit-ins and demonstrations. The latest crisis drew a warning from U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who is scheduled to visit Egypt this weekend. She urged Morsi and the military to settle their differences or risk seeing their nation’s democratic transition derailed. “We strongly urge dialogue and a concerted effort on the part of all to try to deal with the problems that are understandable, but have to be resolved in order to avoid the kind of difficulties that could derail the transition that is going on,” said Clinton in Vietnam. In Washington, State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell urged Egyptian leaders to remain focused on their “responsibilities” and the country’s role as a “pillar for regional peace and security.” During the Egyptian parliament gathering, Speaker Saad el-Katatni told lawmakers that the legislature met to find ways to implement the court ruling rather than debate it out of respect for the principles of “the supremacy of the law and separation of authorities.” But he put forward a plan to seek what amounts to a “second opinion” from an appeals court on the ruling. It was not immediately clear, however, whether the appeals court would accept the legislature’s request. The move, however, may have been designed as a face saving measure — defying the military’s order to disband the legislature while making a show of respect for the law. Both Morsi and el-Katatni are longtime members of the Muslim Brotherhood, the fundamentalist group that has long been at odds with successive Egyptian governments. In its only public comment on the dispute, the military Monday delivered a thinly veiled warning to Morsi, saying the armed forces sides with the “constitution, legitimacy and law” — language that means the powerful military will not stand by and watch a ruling by the country’s highest court ignored or breached. The military handed over power to Morsi on June 30 after ruling Egypt since Mubarak’s downfall. In the run-up to the handover, the military declared itself the country’s legislative authority in the absence of a parliament and gave itself control over the drafting of a new constitution and the national budget. The generals also stripped Morsi of significant powers. For the second consecutive day, Morsi attended a military graduation ceremony, apparently in a bid to ease the perception of a growing showdown with the

Global warming raises chance of unusual weather in some areas BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK — Last year brought a record heat wave to Texas, massive floods in Bangkok and an unusually warm November in England. How much has global warming boosted the chances of events like that? Quite a lot in Texas and England, but apparently not at all in Bangkok, say new analyses released Tuesday. Scientists can’t blame any single weather event on global warming, but they can assess how climate change has altered the odds of such events happening, Tom Peterson of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration told reporters in a briefing. He’s an editor of a report that includes the analyses published by the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society. In the Texas analysis, researchers at Oregon State University and in England noted that the state suffered through record heat last year. It happened during a La Nina weather pattern, the flip side of El Nino. Caused by the cooling of the central Pacific Ocean, La Nina generally cools global temperatures but would be expected to make the southern United States warmer and drier than usual. But beyond that, the scientists wondered, would global warming affect the chances of such an event happening? To find out, they ran a lot of computer simulations of Texas climate during La Nina years. They compared the outcome of three such years in the 1960s with that of 2008, which was used as a stand-in for 2011 because they were unable to simulate last year. The idea, they said, was to check the likelihood of such a heat wave both before and after there was a lot of man-made climate change, which is primarily

from burning fossil fuels like coal and oil. Their conclusion: Global warming has made such a Texas heat wave about 20 times more likely to happen during a La Nina year. Using a similar approach, scientists from Oxford University and the British government looked at temperatures in central England. Last November was the second warmest in that region in more than 300 years. And December 2010 was the second coldest in that time. Their analysis concluded that global warming has made such a warm November about 62 times more likely, and such a cold December just half as likely. Kevin Trenberth, of the National Center for Atmospheric Research’s climate analysis section, said that he found the Britain study to be reasonable, given what he called a flawed climate model. As for the Texas result, he said that given how the study was done, the calculated increase in likelihood “could well be an underestimate.” A third analysis considered unusually severe river flooding last year in central and southern Thailand, including neighbourhoods in Bangkok. It found no sign that climate change played a role in that event, noting that the amount of rainfall was not very unusual. The scale of the flooding was influenced more by factors like reservoir operation policies, researchers wrote. Also at the briefing, NOAA released its report on the climate for 2011, which included several statistics similar to what it had announced earlier. Last year was the coolest since 2008 in terms of global average temperature, but it still remained among the 15 warmest years since records began in the late 1800s, the agency said. It was also above average for the period 1980-10.

country’s powerful generals. Also present in Tuesday’s ceremony in a Nile Delta air base was Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, the country’s top soldier, and his Chief-of-Staff Sami Anan. Morsi is Egypt’s first democratically elected president. Unlike his four predecessors, he does not have a military background and is not the supreme commander of the armed forces. Under a “constitutional declaration” issued by the military on June 17, Morsi cannot declare war or order troops on the streets in the case of a domestic crisis without prior agreement from the military.

Alligator bites off teen’s forearm MOORE HAVEN, Fla. — An alligator at least 10 feet (3 metres) long lunged at a teenager swimming in a river and bit off the boy’s right arm below the elbow, state wildlife officials said Tuesday. Kaleb Langdale, 17, survived the encounter Monday in the Caloosahatchee River west of Lake Okeechobee. Wildlife officers who caught and killed the alligator retrieved the arm, but doctors were unable to reattach it. “We found the alligator that was responsible,” Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Jorge Pino said. “We were able to kill the alligator and dissect the alligator, remove the arm and transport the arm to the hospital to see if the doctors could reattach the limb.” The alligator was 10 or 11 feet long, Pino said. The teen was in good condition Tuesday at Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers. His friends told Fort Myers television station WBBH (http://bit.ly/NljdlO ) that while the arm could not be reattached, Langdale was in good spirits. The alligator went straight for Langdale as he was swimming, Matt Baker said.

“It came at him and he put his arm in the way instead of letting it get to his body. It took his arm and him under,” Baker said. Another friend said Langdale popped out of the water shortly after being bitten. “He was waving saying, ’Call the paramedics! My arm is gone!”’ Gary Beck said. The Glades County area near Lake Okeechobee where Langdale was swimming is known to have several large alligators in it, Pino said. Alligators are more active this time of year because it’s their mating season, which makes them more aggressive and inquisitive as they’re looking for food and for mates. Wildlife officers warn that alligators can call just about any body of water in Florida home. “Anything that makes any splash in the water or any little commotion in the water may attract them to that particular location,” Pino said. It’s rare for wild alligators to bite humans, though, Pino said. “We have millions of people swimming in the state’s waterways and nothing happens,” he said. Since 1948, 224 people have suffered major alligator bites, including 22 fatal bites, according to June 2011 conservation commission data.
