Balmoral Golf Course member Tyler Salahub chips a shot onto the eighth green earlier this week. BY HARLEY RICHARDS ADVOCATE BUSINESS EDITOR If the recent demise of Eckville’s Fairways at Last Hill Golf and Country Club and the Rimbey Golf and Trailer Park didn’t raise eyebrows, the receivership last month of Pheasantback Golf and Country Club near Stettler certainly did. Those who work in Central Alberta’s golf industry agree that the economic downturn and bad weather have hurt most courses. But they also point to deeper problems that could threaten the viability of even more golf courses. “A lot of golf courses — 10, 15 years ago — were doing maybe 5,000 to 10,000 more rounds than they are now,” said Ryan Vold, director of golf at Wolf Creek Golf Resort near Ponoka. This decline reflects an aging population, with many young people choosing not to step into the golf shoes of their parents and grandparents. “There’s definitely been a shift in demographics,” said Blair Felesky, general manager of the Pine Hills Golf Club at Rocky Mountain House. “We’ve been aware of that for many, many years.”

The extent of that shift came into focus on Sept. 12, when the National Allied Golf Associations (NAGA) — a body representing a half-dozen Canadian golf organizations — published the results of a golf consumer behaviour study. These indicated that as many people are leaving the game as entering it, far fewer youths are taking up the sport than was the case a generation ago and among current golfers, there are many more reducing their play than increasing it. “They’re definitely hitting the nail on the head with the trend,” said Lesley McMahon, who manages Balmoral Golf Club just east of Red Deer and is president of the Alberta chapter of the National Golf Course Owners Association of Canada — one of the partners behind NAGA. McMahon thinks part of the fault rests with golf course owners and operators who favour challenging layouts for skilled players rather than easier tracks for novices. This approach would be comparable to a ski resort offering only black diamond runs, she suggested.

Five arrested in stolen vehicles case
BRIEF University of Calgary board of governors chairman steps down CALGARY — The chairman of the University of Calgary board of governors is stepping down a month after questions were raised about his expense claims. Doug Black, who is a senator-elect in Alberta, said in a release Friday that it is time for him to move on. The Canadian Taxpayers Federation has been critical of expenses Black claimed during his five years on the board, including executive-class flights and $500-a-night hotel rooms. Black, a lawyer and president of the Energy Policy Institute of Canada, has repaid some of this expense money. He was elected for the Progressive Conservatives last April as a Senate nominee in the Alberta provincial election. The names of Senate nominees are submitted by Alberta to the federal government for consideration whenever the province has a Senate vacancy.

Vold said golf clubs are also becoming less restrictive when it comes to things like dress codes. “To get the new generation golfing. we’ve got to be a little more openminded or they’re going to go play something else.” River Bend Golf Club has also won golfers back with initiatives like price reductions, said general manager Andrew Gilchrist. It’s also made a considerable investment in its junior golf programs — a strategy that appears to be paying off. “I’ve never seen as many children

Five arrests have been made following a series of vehicle and ATV thefts in the Rocky area. Jamie Jerome Whitford, 19, faces five charges including three counts of theft of an ATV and two counts of trespassing at night. He appears in Rocky Mountain House court Oct. 17. Four male youths, who cannot be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, will make court appearances in Red Deer and Rocky youth courts. The five accused, who are all from the Rocky area, also had seven outstanding warrants totaling 23 charges between them in relation to other incidents and ATV thefts over the summer. The arrests stem from a Rocky RCMP investigation conducted Wednesday and Thursday into the recent increase in area vehicle and ATV thefts. Officers also recovered three stolen vehicles and two ATVs.

He was fined $9,000 and had to forfeit all weapons and gun parts.

2010. A few months later, police laid two second-degree murder charges against Borowiec. They believe she gave birth sometime in 2008 and again in 2009, and that both babies died shortly after being born. Boroweic has pleaded not guilty. The six-week trial in front of a judge and jury is to begin March 25. The story of the baby found in the dumpster was gripping because the baby’s father played a part in the rescue, apparently not knowing that the child was his. The father, who told police he didn’t know his girlfriend was pregnant, was on his way home when he and other passersby heard crying coming from the trash bin. The child has recovered and is healthy.
on a Saturday and Sunday morning on a driving range as I see at River Bend,” said Gilchrist. Sylvan Lake Golf and Country Club has also managed to grow its junior program, said head pro and director of golf Todd Jurak. Participation has gone from four to about 60 over the past several years, he said. Clark described a similar success in Lacombe. “Our biggest growth area is kids under the age of 12.” There are other positives related to golf in Central Alberta. Among these, most courses enjoyed improved results in 2012. “It’s amazing how much better business has been this year,” said Clark of the situation at Lacombe. “We’ve had maybe a third of the rain that we’ve had the last three or four years on an annual basis during the summer months.” He’s also seen the effects of an improved economy, including a jump in the number of corporate events being held at golf courses. Gilchrist tells a similar story. The bad weather, depressed economy and winterkill had combined to reduce the number of rounds played at River Bend to fewer than 30,000 — well below the 45,000 possible under perfect conditions and the approximately 34,000 the club normally budgets for. “We have seen a reversal of the trend this year,” said Gilchrist. “We have seen an increase in our passholder sales by 15 per cent over 2011; we’ve also seen a significant increase in our rounds of golf as well, in that 15 to 16 per cent range.” Despite some discouraging findings, the NAGA study does note that golf could be the “cusp of greatness” if the countless people who dabble in the game become more dedicated. Many of these are women.

The NAGA study recommended that courses be shortened and simplified to lower costs, reduce playing time and be less intimidating for newcomers. Darren Black, club manager at the Innisfail Golf Club, said another factor keeping people away from tee boxes is the growth in recreational options available to them. In the case of youths, he added, their parents often assume mistakenly that golf is the most expensive choice. Felesky agreed that affordability is an issue for many people, as is the commitment that golf requires. “It’s time-consuming to play the game of golf,” he said, “and there are a lot of (other options) out there.” Vold pointed to participation in the McLennan Ross Sun Junior Golf Tour, which includes tournaments at several Central Alberta courses, as reason for concern. “In the junior tournaments you used to get probably 100 to 120 kids come out. Now we’re getting only 60 or 70 kids.” Even private clubs, many of which had long waiting lists just a few years ago, have been affected. Felesky thinks the social appeal of private clubs isn’t as strong for young people as it once was, and they don’t want to be tied down to one course. Don McFarlane, director of golf at the Red Deer Golf and Country Club, confirmed that his club has not had a waiting list for several years. But he predicts that this will soon change. “I think we’ll be back to a waiting list, if not in 2013, then 2014 for sure.” The reason for McFarlane’s optimism are changes the golf and country club have implemented to grow its membership. These include a more flexible pricing structure and a movement away from rules and restrictions that discourage some newcomers. “We want to be more family-oriented and get spouses involved,” he said. “We’re also doing things to make sure our long-term members stay active and stay connected to the club.” Other clubs are also taking steps to attract and retain players. Felesky described how Pine Hills has held the line on fee increases and now makes more tee times available

Newfoundland E. coli case same strain as XL Foods BY THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — Health officials are investigating whether a person who got sick from E. coli in Newfoundland is the sixth case to be linked to an Alberta meat plant at the centre of a major beef recall. Newfoundland and Labrador’s Health Department said Friday a person in the eastern part of the province was infected by a specific strain of the bacteria being investigated at XL Foods Inc. The person has recovered and officials are still trying to determine the source of the E. coli. The Alberta government has reported that five people fell ill last month from E. coli linked to steaks processed at the XL Foods plant in Brooks, southeast of Calgary. Tests are being done to track down the source of E. coli in four other cases in Alberta, 13 in Saskatchewan and one in British Columbia. E. coli was first detected in the plant on Sept. 4, but it took 12 days for the first of numerous public alerts to be issued, leading to the recall of more than 1,800 XL Foods beef products across Canada and much of the United States. It then took nearly two weeks for the Canadian Food Inspection Agency to shut down the plant on Sept. 27.
Federal Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz came under opposition fire in the House of Commons again Friday. The NDP has asked him to apologize to Canadians and resign. Ritz repeated that food safety remains a priority for the Harper government. He has said the XL plant will not be allowed to reopen until investigators are satisfied it is safe. Government officials released a few more details Friday about the ongoing investigation into the plant. Harpreet Kochhar with the Public Health Agency of Canada told reporters XL Foods had a plan in place to battle E. coli, but wasn’t following or updating that plan. He said the plan, known as a hazard analysis and critical control points plan, is a requirement. “When we looked into it in depth, we found that there was an existing plan but the company was not following that plan accordingly.” The public health agency later issued a press release citing insufficient record keeping related to monitoring and equipment maintenance, as well as deficiencies in sampling techniques and procedures. It earlier revealed the company was not doing proper “trend analysis” when it saw spikes the week before the E. coli was found. A practice known as “bracketing,” in which shipments before and after

one that contains a positive test are diverted from the line, also wasn’t followed properly. The agency further listed 10 maintenance and sanitation infractions, but said the issues would not typically contribute to E. coli contamination. Inspectors found some XL staff were not wearing beard nets, some did not follow proper washing procedures and the thermometer on the evisceration table was not working properly. The agency said no single factor led to E. coli contamination at the plant. “The combination of several deficiencies could have played a role,” said the news release. “By themselves, each of these findings would not typically signal an immediate concern during the course of normal inspection activities.” In the early days of the outbreak, XL Foods wasn’t quick to hand over important information. Officials said they requested documents from XL Foods by Sept. 8, but the company missed the deadline by two days and the paper it did hand over was unusable. XL Foods provided officials with better information starting Sept. 11, but more requests had to be made later. Karen McIntyre, an executive director with the public health agency, said officials didn’t have enough of a reason to down the plant when the company withheld the information.

Gloria was able to live her final days free from the fear that she would be sentenced to suffer cruelly in a failing Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2012 body.” Grace Pastine, litigation director for the B.C.

VANCOUVER — A woman who became the new face for the fight for assisted suicide has died of natural causes, long before her efforts to have laws banning the practice overturned for good could be completed. Earlier this year, Gloria Taylor, 64, won a courtapproved exemption from the laws when a judge ruled Canada’s ban on physician-assisted suicide infringes on the rights of disabled people. The announcement of her death came on Friday from the B.C. Civil Liberties Association. “Gloria’s death was sudden and unexpected,” said a news release from the group. “The cause of death was a severe infection resulting from a perforated colon. Due to the acute nature and brief course of her illness from the infection, Gloria did not need to seek the assistance of a physician to end her life.” The release went on to say that Taylor died quickly and peacefully in hospital, surrounded by family. “She was spared from the prolonged death from ALS that she dreaded and which inspired her participation in the lawsuit.” Taylor was among the plaintiffs in the landmark case that prompted Judge Lynn Smith to rule the ban on assisted suicide violates two sections of the Charter of Rights covering the right to equality and the right to life, liberty and security of the person. She said the law must allow for doctor-assisted suicide in cases where patients have a serious illness or disability and are experiencing intolerable suffering. Such patients must ask for the help, must be free of coercion and cannot be clinically depressed, the

Trudeau wins key endorsement BY THE CANADIAN PRESS DIEPPE, N.B. — On a day when Justin Trudeau’s Liberal leadership bid won the support of Dominic LeBlanc — a scion of Canada’s Liberal establishment — a new poll came out that suggests he could reshape the country’s political landscape. The latest Canadian Press Harris-Decima survey released Friday says 36 per cent of those who took part in the poll across the country last week said they would be certain or likely to vote Liberal in the next election if Trudeau is at the party’s helm. The poll says he would get “significant support” east of Manitoba, with 40 per cent of those surveyed in Ontario, 43 per cent in Quebec and 48 per cent in Atlantic Canada indicating they would be certain or likely to vote for the Liberals if Trudeau is leading the party. “Justin Trudeau — more than any other prospective candidate we tested — holds the best prospect for a revival of the Liberal party,” said Allan Gregg, chairman of Harris-Decima. “In fact he is the only candidate we tested that has the potential to broaden the Liberal vote beyond its current base.” Gregg said the results in Quebec “debunk the myth that the Trudeau name is a liability in the province of Quebec or among francophones.” The poll also suggests that while Trudeau is a threat to the Conservatives, the NDP has the most to lose from his leadership of the Liberals. The poll suggests that if Quebec MP Marc Garneau were leading the Liberals, 18 per cent of respondents would be certain or likely to vote for the party, while the Bank of Canada’s Mark Carney stood at 16 per cent. The telephone poll taken between Sept. 27 and 30 of just over 1,000 Canadians is considered accurate within plus or minus 3.1 percentage points, 19 times out of 20. It also looked at LeBlanc’s chances in the leadership race, but the New Brunswick MP set his own ambitions aside on Friday to back his lifelong friend. LeBlanc’s move, coming only three days after Trudeau announced his candidacy, effectively leaves the Montreal MP without any serious challengers waiting in the wings, prompting more speculation about a boring coronation rather than a exciting race leading to the final voting in April.
In a brief speech that was mostly in French, LeBlanc told about 250 people in Dieppe, N.B., that he and Trudeau have not only been friends since childhood, but they also share deep Liberal roots — LeBlanc’s late father, former governor general Romeo LeBlanc, was a longtime Liberal MP and cabinet minister who served under Trudeau’s famous father, former prime minister Pierre Trudeau. LeBlanc said their families vacationed together in New Brunswick in August, and the two politicians share not only a close friendship, but the same political values. “We spoke, Justin and I, about our shared love of Canada,” he told a campaign event where the announcement was made. “We spoke about the challenges facing our country and we spoke about how we can participate, fully, in the future of Canada and in giving Canadians a progressive, inclusive government of which they can be proud.” In the past, LeBlanc has had aspirations to lead his party and briefly ran for the top job in 2008 before stepping aside for Michael Ignatieff. Although he’d mused publicly about running again this time, he made no effort to put together a campaign team and few Liberals actually expected him to take the plunge. An insider close to Trudeau said no pressure was put on LeBlanc to stand aside. In his speech, Trudeau spoke in broad terms about his desire to lead the party and the country. There were no policy announcements, no clues as to what he would do if handed the mantle of power. But he pumped up the crowd with little effort. He also punctuated most of his sentences by looking directly as the assembled cameras like a seasoned campaigner. “It’s not about me. It’s not even about our party,” he said. “It’s about the fact that Canadians are listening because they’re not satisfied with the government they have. They want better. They know they deserve better.” After the speech, Rick Sear said he liked what he heard from Trudeau. “He expresses a vision of a new generation for Canada,” said Sear, a retired accountant from Sussex. “It’s really what we need in this country — new leadership. Let the younger people take over.” Sear also said he was impressed with Trudeau’s vision. “He expressed values, Canadian values,” he said.
Documentary star urges Ontario to strengthen protection for captive animals BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — The star of an Academy Award-winning documentary on dolphin abuse is urging Ontario to enact laws to protect captive animals, including those at Marineland. Ric O’Barry, a former dolphin trainer turned animal activist, is lending his support to Zoocheck Canada and former park employees who allege animals at the Niagara Falls tourist attraction aren’t properly cared for. Asked how it measured up to other parks he’s seen outside Canada, O’Barry, who has not visited Marineland since the 1990s, responded: “Relative to progressive countries, very civilized countries, yeah, Marineland is the worst by far.” Countries like Guatamala, Brazil and Haiti are ahead of Canada in terms of protection laws for marine mammals, he said. “For a country as advanced as Canada to not have offered any protection whatsoever is just shocking,”
he added. O’Barry, who trained dolphins that were used in the TV show “Flipper” in the 1960s, became a critic of captivity after the death of Kathy, one of the dolphins. His efforts to raise public awareness and stop mass dolphin kills in Japan was documented in the film “The Cove,” which won an Oscar in 2010. O’Barry said problems at Marineland have come up repeatedly over the years. This time, he hopes the public will put pressure on the government to make some changes. Parents should do it for their children, who are witnessing a “spectacle of dominance” at these parks, he said. Whales and dolphins are confined to small spaces — basically a “bare concrete box” — with no connection to their natural environment, he said. Parks like Marineland should be abolished and the captive animals allowed to live out their lives in dignity, he said.

Quebec mayor not resigning after raids LAVAL, Que. — A powerful Quebec mayor brushed aside a request for his resignation Friday after police raided his home amid the province’s ever-widening corruption scandal. Gilles Vaillancourt, the mayor of Quebec’s thirdlargest municipality, this week became the most prominent politician targeted by raids from the provincial anti-corruption squad. He was not charged with any crime and said he will not resign. “What I’m experiencing today is a shock,” said the Laval, Que., mayor one day after 70 officers from the province’s anti-corruption squad started to sift through his affairs. “It was totally unforeseen and I can affirm that it is not a very pleasant situation.” Media reports on Friday evening indicated that police raided a second home owned by Vaillancourt, also in Laval. Vaillancourt said he couldn’t even comment on the reason for the raids because he had no idea what police might have been looking for.
Ottawa releases caribou strategy OTTAWA — The federal government is promising to work harder to preserve habitat needed by Canada’s vanishing woodland caribou. In a document released late Friday afternoon, Environment Canada released the final version of long-
awaited recovery strategy for the animals, which scientists believe could be wiped out from some areas within a generation. The plan puts the emphasis on habitat restoration, saying that all caribou ranges should be at least 65 per cent undisturbed. “For boreal caribou ranges with less than 65 per cent undisturbed habitat, restoration ... will be necessary.” Most of those ranges that don’t meet the threshold are in Alberta, where oilsands development has disturbed more than 80 per cent of some. That could put the federal plan at odds with the province, said Simon Dyer of the Pembina Institute, an environmental think-tank. “The target for every range is to incrementally start improving toward 65 per cent,” he said. “I would think that it would require a much higher level of due diligence to ensure restoration is exceeding the rate of new development. It does set the recovery plan on a collision course with industry.” Alberta government officials said they won’t comment on the plan until Tuesday, when they’ve had a chance to look at it.
Reputed Mob boss out of U.S. prison MONTREAL — Vito Rizzuto has stepped into an unkown world after an eight-year prison stint, with his once-dominant alleged criminal empire decimated by setbacks and his own family devastated by tragedy. The reputed Mafia boss was released from a prison in Colorado into the hands of American immigration authorities Friday. A spokesman for the U.S. federal correctional institution in Florence said the 66-year year Rizzuto was freed around breakfast time, at 7:07 a.m. Spokesman Kim Nelson said he was then handed over to a United States Immigra-
RED DEER ADVOCATE Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012 A5 tion and Customs unit. Rizzuto’s subsequent whereabouts remained shrouded in mystery. “Where they were taking him,” Nelson said, “I don’t know.” Carl Rosnok of U.S. Immigration and Customs said it could be “hours or days” before Rizzuto returned to Canada. If Rizzuto’s passport had expired, which is what generally occurs during a lengthy prison stay, he said the process would be delayed until travel documents were obtained. After that point, it’s unclear what the reputed Sicilian Mafia boss will do next.
Confinement suspect brought back to Nova Scotia in RCMP airplane HALIFAX — A man facing charges of sexually assaulting and confining a teenage boy was brought to Nova Scotia on a police airplane Friday evening. David James Leblanc, 47, was wearing a blue jumpsuit and was met by RCMP officers and placed in a blue sports utility vehicle. He is scheduled to appear in Bridgewater provincial court on Tuesday morning. Leblanc was arrested Sunday on a road in the northern Ontario community of Greenstone after officers received a report of a man wandering with no shoes and wearing light clothing in near-freezing temperatures. Police have said a medical condition prevented Leblanc from flying to Nova Scotia for several days. The search for the co-accused in the case, 31-yearold Wayne Alan Cunningham, ended Thursday when his body was found in a densely wooded area close to where Leblanc was arrested, police said.

Tory insiders squander money as layoffs loom WRONGHEADED BUDGETARY PLANS BASED ON HIGH OIL PRICE PROJECTIONS PRESAGE NEW ALBERTA CUTBACKS Happy anniversary Madame Premier. Let’s hope your second year as premier of Alberta is more stellar than your first, but given what’s happening, that looks like a longshot. Sunday marks one full year in office for Alison Redford, ending a challenging year with a very tough week. Its lowlights were another grim meeting with her British Columbia counterpart Christie Clark over the Northern Gateway pipeline, and a tale of clueless Alberta government extravagance at the London Olympics. JOE The former issue is more MCLAUGHLIN important, but the latter one got most of the headlines, because it’s so shameful. More fundamentally, it reopens questions about how this government plans and spends. Redford’s government spent half a million dollars on a trip to London to advance Alberta’s interests during the Olympics. That huge tab would have been considerably higher if her government had not reined in spending by cutting the size of Alberta’s delegation. The problem is that decision came too late, and Albertans paid for hotel rooms that were booked but never used. The posh hotel was able to backfill some cancellations with new clients, but not all of them. Alberta’s tab for the empty rooms, billed out at $850 per night: $113,687. On the scale of spending for an organization as large as the Alberta government, that’s small beans. Alberta Health spends that much money every four seconds, every minute of the year.
Albertans, however, have a sense that we get value for most of the money spent on health care. Junkets by high rollers to party hearty while promoting Alberta’s interests at spectacles like the Olympics are always suspect. Redford and her close advisers were obviously aware of that public sentiment when they downsized the staffing contingent. But that decision came too late and the hardearned dollars of Alberta taxpayers were squandered in London for nothing. This week, Kerry Towle, the rookie MLA for Innisfail-Sylvan Lake and Opposition party whip, was effective in putting Redford’s government’s feet to the fire on this issue. She and her Wildrose Party colleagues need to show similar diligence on the more substantive issues. While Redford’s government is taking a deserved hit on the hotel room boondoggle, it’s slithering by on a much bigger fiasco. In her first budget as premier in February, Redford pledged to put Alberta back on a sound financial track, with a budgetary deficit of less than $1 billion this year, and surpluses in the years to come. Within months, however, that commitment was abandoned. Her government’s fiscal update was delivered by Finance Minister Doug Horner in late August — just in time to be ignored by Albertans getting ready for the Labour Day weekend. It projected a deficit this year between $2.3 billion and $3 billion. Instead of talking about growth and enhancement as Alberta’s buoyant economy grows steadily, the government is being forced to consider cutbacks and closures. Between Horner’s rosy first budget and recent revelations of large ongoing deficits, however, there was another key moment in Alberta politics. In April, Redford went from a leader selected by
her party members to a premier elected by Albertans. She led the Conservatives to a surprising majority government, capturing 61 of 83 seats in the Alberta legislature. Optimistic financial projections for a speedy end to deficits played a huge part in that win. Any chance that was deliberate? Within weeks of the election, those numbers began to look wobbly. The budget was based on oil prices averaging almost $100 a barrel over the entire course of the budget year. The price of West Texas Intermediate crude oil, however, has not closed above US$100 since May. Other global oil prices have been considerably higher, but without a pipeline anywhere other than the Texas Gulf Coast, Alberta oil is restricted to one market and a discounted price. No British Columbia politician could possibly get elected or re-elected next year by promoting the Enbridge plan to pipe Alberta crude oil to B.C. for export to fast-growing Asian markets that are willing to pay more for reliable oil supplies. B.C. Premier Christy Clark’s frosty second recent visit to Alberta this week made it abundantly clear she will not support that plan (until, perhaps, a election victory next year is safely in hand.) In the meantime, the Alberta economy will grow at a slower rate, and citizens will be forced to endure more deficits, service cutbacks and layoffs. It’s beginning to look like the unlamented yo-yo days of the Ralph Klein regime. The premier may need frequent vacations in fivestar hotels to soothe her soul this year. Destinations probably won’t include British Columbia and they better not come on the taxpayers’ dime. Joe McLaughlin is the retired managing editor of the Red Deer Advocate.
Chavez’s swansong? CHANGE LOOMING IN VENEZUELA It is imaginable — not certain, but certainly possible — that Hugo Chavez, Venezuela’s strongman ruler since 1998, will lose the presidential election on Sunday. The most recent opinion polls showed that his challenger, Henrique Capriles, has closed the gap between them to only five per cent or less of the popular vote. If Chavez loses, would he actually hand over power peacefully? He says he would, of course — but he also says that it’s an irrelevant question, since he will surely win. “It is written,” he tells his GWYNNE supporters reassuringly. DYER But it is not. Chavez really could lose this time, for 30 different opposition parties, ranging from the centre-left to the far right, have finally got together and chosen a single candidate for the presidency. Moreover, Capriles is no Mitt Romney: he knows that the votes of the poor matter. In previous elections, the Venezuelan opposition railed against Chavez’s “socialism” and Marxism, and lost. Capriles, by contrast, promises to retain most of Chavez’s social welfare policies, which have poured almost $300 billion over the last dozen years into programs to improve literacy, extend high school education, improve health care, build housing for the homeless, and subsidize household purchases from groceries to appliances. Capriles can make those promises because, like Chavez, he can pay for them out of the country’s huge oil revenues. He has to make them, because poorer Venezuelans — and most Venezuelans are poor — won’t vote for a candidate who would end all that. But Capriles says he will spend that money more effectively, with less corruption, and a lot of people believe him. It would not be hard to be more efficient than Chavez’s ramshackle administration. Capriles also has the advantage of being 18 years younger and a lot fitter than the incumbent, who has been fighting cancer for the past 15 months. Chavez says it is cured now, but physically he is clearly not the man he was. Some of his own supporters suspect that he is not long for this world — and while they still love Chavez himself, they neither love nor trust the people around him, who might seize power when he was gone. Moreover, though Chavez’s rule has benefited the poor in many ways, they are still poor. Venezuela’s economy has grown far more slowly than those of its big neighbours, Brazil and Colombia, even though it has enjoyed the advantages of big oil exports and a tenfold rise in the world oil price. Indeed, almost all the growth in Venezuela’s

Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez waves to supporters during a campaign rally in Barquisimeto, Venezuela, Tuesday. Chavez will run for re-election against opposition candidate Henrique Capriles on Sunday. economy since Chavez took power is due to higher oil prices; most other parts of the economy have shrunk. And while the oil revenues have been big enough — $980 billion during Chavez’s presidency — to sustain the subsidies at their current level, they will never be enough to transform the entire economy. You can work it out on the back of an envelope. There are almost 30 million Venezuelans. Even if all of that $980 billion had been shared out among them during Chavez’s 12 years in power, they would only have got about $3,000 per person per year. Since the oil revenue also had to pay for everything from defence to road construction, the real number was more like $1,000 per person per year. That’s nice to have, but it’s not going to transform lives. In fact, many people now feel that they are sliding backward again, for inflation has been about 1,000 per cent since 1998, ten times worse than in Venezuela’s neighbours. And the shelves in the government-subsidized food shops are bare most of the time. It’s like the old Soviet Union: when a shipment of some basic commodity finally arrives, it is all snapped up instantly, and then there is nothing until the next delivery. Nationalization and central planning didn’t do the old communist states of Europe any good, and they haven’t worked in Venezuela either. Something radical must be done to get the real,

non-oil economy growing at a decent rate. So even Chavez loyalists can be tempted by a politician who promises to keep the subsidies, but to scrap the antique Marxist dogmatism that cripples the economy. Henrique Capriles is exactly that politician, and therefore he really might win the election. What then? What would probably happen is a grudging but peaceful hand-over of power to the newly elected President Capriles. Chavez has not been reluctant to exploit the government’s near-monopoly of the broadcast media and his rhetoric is often vicious — he has called Capriles a “pig” and a “fascist” — but unlike the former communist states of Europe, he has always held real elections that he could actually lose. If he loses this one, he still knows that the welfare state he began to build will survive his departure: it is now part of the country’s political furniture. He will be conscious that his health might not be good enough to sustain him through a long postelection crisis. And for all his bluff and bluster about defending the “Bolivarian revolution,” he may actually respect a democratic vote that goes against him. Whether his colleagues and cronies would feel the same way is another question, but they could hardly reject an outcome that Chavez himself accepted. This thing could still end well.

may be doing, he argues, is to prevent sovereign risk, as weak governments run into fiscal cliffs, from becoming “a source of further economic catastrophe.” What the world needs today are confidence-building measures that point to a global strategy for growth. Yet a lack of international leadership makes this difficult. The United States, which played this role for much of the past 50 years, has become a hunkered down, inwardlooking country that has less capacity and even less political will to play a leadership role. Yet as Pascal Lamy, WTO director general, warned in a recent speech, “the pressure on governments for protectionist actions are more intense today than they were in the aftermath of 2008. This is worrying and we see it through our regular monitoring exercises in the WTO.” This is why a decision by key nations, including Canada, to make a determined effort to reach a new global trading agreement — known as the Doha Round — is so important. A genuine effort to strengthen opportunity in the global economy by the world’s major nations would have a powerful confidence-building impact on the world economy. It would demonstrate that nations were acting together to build a stronger global economy. So would a credible global agree-
ment to work towards sustainable energy development and climate change. This would create enormous investment opportunities for a low-carbon world. Likewise, a serious effort by the G-20 nations to bring about serious financial reform to reduce the risks of future financial crises in the face of determined effort by bankers to limit reform would build confidence. At the same time, fiscal issues have to be addressed by individual nations. The need is not for immediate draconian budget-cutting austerity but for truly credible medium-term plans that seriously deal with problems of deficits and debt. The biggest need, though, is leadership. Britain provided global leadership in the 19th century. The United States in the 20th century replaced Britain as the guardian of the global system. In the 21st century, it lacks the capacity to do so. For the 21st century, it may take a small group of nations with a shared commitment to multilateralism. It’s essential because without global leadership, we run the risk of beggar-thyneighbour policies that in the end bring everyone down. That was a big lesson of the 1930s Great Depression.
race to push Trudeau — not a confederate to make him a better debater or challenge him to flesh out policy, but someone who could beat him. That candidate, of course, is Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney, a man who could bring unparalleled economic gravitas to a party in need of some policy heft, but a man whose leadership ambitions are thus far defined by anonymous Liberal whispers and aspirational Facebook campaigns. Carney has given no indication he would leave his perch with two years left for the leadership of Canada’s third party. He is in the upper echelons of the global economic stratosphere, and a Liberal leadership bid would be a painful, earthbound re-entry.
But there are senior Liberals who have not yet taken no for an answer — because they haven’t been given no for an answer. When he was asked directly about his political plans by Global TV’s West Block host Tom Clark last spring, Carney gave a political answer, parrying the host’s contention that he hadn’t closed down a political future with the cryptic “I haven’t opened it up.’’ Trudeau may prove to be the real deal and none of this will matter. But if Trudeau stumbles while leading his parade, some Liberals will keep dreaming of Carney until the Bank of Canada governor delivers that definitive “No.” Tim Harper is a syndicated Toronto Star national affairs writer.

12,000 striking miners fired BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS JOHANNESBURG, South Africa — Anglo American Platinum fired 12,000 striking miners Friday for staging an unlawful strike that is one of several that are slowly paralyzing South Africa’s crucial mining sector. About 80,000 miners, representing 16 per cent of the country’s mine workforce, are currently striking in a wave of wildcat work stoppages that have serious economic and political implications for South Africa. Strike leader Gaddafi Mdoda, a mineworker at Anglo American Platinum, or Amplats, said he was one of the workers who received emails or SMS messages telling them they had been dismissed. “Things are bad here,” Mdoda said. The strike leader said he was shocked by the decision to dismiss striking workers, even though “it is nothing to be afraid of.” “Approximately 12,000 striking employees chose
BRIEFS Ex-reeve Stoyberg claimed by cancer Elmer Stoyberg, a Raven-area farmer who spent nearly two decades as a Red Deer County councillor, has died. Cancer claimed the 77-year-old father, grandfather and great-grandfather at Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre on Wednesday. He was first elected as Division 5 councillor in 1983 and went on to reelection another four times. He sat out one term, then was elected again in 2001. His council colleagues elected him reeve for the years 1989 to 1991. Current Councillor Penny Archibald remembers Stoyberg as “a very strong man. “He believed in the county as a whole, not just each division.” She said he was instrumental in getting West Country oilfield companies to help the county take better care of its road network. A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. on Tuesday at the Royal Canadian Legion in Innisfail.

not to make representations, nor attend the hearings, and have therefore been dismissed in their absence,” a statement from Amplats said, according to the South African Press Agency. Mary Jane Morifi, a spokeswoman for Anglo American Platinum declined to comment, saying a detailed statement would be issued later Friday. Violence has been reported at the company’s Rustenburg mines, with police firing tear gas and rubber bullets Thursday to disperse striking miners armed with sticks and other crude weapons. A striking miner’s dead body was discovered Friday morning, the apparent victim of rubber bullets to the stomach, said Mdoda. Amplats is the world’s largest platinum producer and South Africa produces 75 per cent of the world’s platinum. The ANC Youth League, reacting to the dismissal of striking mineworkers, described Amplats as “a disgrace and a disappointment to the country at large, a representation of white monopoly capital out

of touch and uncaring of the plight of the poor.” The Youth League said the mass firings “demonstrates the insensibility and insensitivity of the company ... which has made astronomical profits on the blood, sweat and tears of the very same workers that today the company can just fire with impunity.” Mdoda, the strike leader, said the fired miners would intensify their strike, even if they were no longer bona fide employees of Amplats. At least 20,000 mineworkers at Amplats have been staging a wildcat strike since Sept. 12, demanding 12,500 rand (about $1,500) in take-home pay. Amplats managers said from the start that the strike, which brought the company’s operations in Rustenburg to a standstill, is unlawful. South Africa’s mining industry has been in turmoil since August, when mineworkers at a platinum mine staged a wildcat strike that led to police shooting and killing 34 workers in Marikana, shocking a nation that had not witnessed such a level of violence since the end of apartheid.

Mother, son win lottery A Bowden mother and her son won $250,000 on the Extra last month. Sandra Gyorffy and son Dale Lenting won on their Free Play ticket for Sept. 14. Sandra took her ticket to the Central Alberta Co-op in Innisfail to redeem the Free Play. She had paid a dollar for the Extra. She always checks the tickets on the Western Canada Lottery Corp. website before taking them in to a store. She was astounded to find that their ticket had correctly matched the last seven digits in exact order to win. “I had been away for 10 days, so I was pleasantly surprised!” Gyorffy said. Gyorffy plans to use her winnings to help her slow down a bit from work. Her son plans to use his share to kickstart some projects he’s had on hold.
This annual booklet is packed full of festive recipes and everyone’s favorite songs of the season, a must-have in every Central Alberta home. The carols are enjoyed through the season and the recipes are tried and tasted all year long.

Cheeseburger in paradise
A private island retreat accessible only by boat, Cabbage Key, Fla., boasts a burger so good that it inspired a famous tune
person who visits the restaurant for the first time to sign a George Washington and tack it to the wall. The restaurant has framed the signed bills of some of its more famous patrons, including Mark Kirkland, director of The Simpsons, former U.S. president Jimmy Carter, John F. Kennedy Jr. and, of course, Jimmy Buffet. Legend has it that this curious tradition began when a thirsty sailor stopped for a drink at the restaurant’s bar. When he was ready to leave and couldn’t find his server, he signed a George Washington and tacked the bill to the wall to ensure he would be welcomed back the next time he got thirsty. Today there is so much money on the walls and ceilings that it is falling off. About $10,000 falls off every year and is donated to charity. The dining experience is casual and laid back. There are a number of locally-inspired island favourites on the menu such as peel-and-eat Gulf shrimp and grilled mahi mahi, but I knew before going in that I would be ordering the cheeseburger. Any food that could inspire a pop song, begged to be tried. I have to say that when it came, I was a little disappointed. To be honest, my cheeseburger didn’t look that special. In this case though, looks aren’t everything, because it tasted pretty good. I didn’t feel like bursting into song after consuming it, but then again — I’m not Jimmy Buffet.
Please see BURGER on Page B3
Top: Looks aren’t everything. Locals like to say that this cheeseburger inspired Jimmy Buffet to write the song A Cheeseburger in Paradise. Buffet has been a regular customer for many years Middle: Cabbage Key is a privately owned island that has been open to the public since the 1940s, when the inn and restaurant were built. Today, it makes a great stop for yachters and daytrippers from mainland Florida.

s our Captiva Cruises tour boat pulled up to the dock at the tiny Floridian island of Cabbage Key, we couldn’t help but notice a massive $3-million yacht docked in the diminutive harbour. On the deck of the vessel was a small dog in a lifejacket pacing back and forth. As we exited our boat, the dog decided it was time to exit her vessel as well and slipped off the boat and made a running break for the island. Sadly, the rich little rebel dog never reached dry land, because she was chased down and scooped up by her frantic female owner. Watching the entire scene, we knew for sure there was something special about Cabbage Key. Located on the Gulf of Mexico about 32 km northwest of Fort Myers, Cabbage Key is a private island retreat that is only accessible by water. Once a totally secluded hideaway, the island has been open to the public since the mid-1940s, when the Cabbage Key Inn and restaurant were opened. Today, the island makes a great lunch or dinner stop for yachters and a nice day trip for those travelling from mainland Florida. The restaurant is inside an old white house with an open air porch and is famous for its cheeseburger, which locals claim was the inspiration for Jimmy Buffet’s famous song A Cheeseburger in Paradise. Cabbage Key has been a favourite haunt of Buffet and several other celebrities, but perhaps the most unique feature of the dining experience is the expensive wallpaper. The walls are covered with about 70,000 U.S. one dollar bills. It is tradition for every

With the run-up to the U.S. presidential elections in full swing, we are hearing many promises from the two opponents. Presidents, like other politicians, make promises, but they have a power other politicians do not: They can create a new tourism destination with a stroke of their pen. A U.S. National Park can only be created by an order of Congress whereas under the Antiquities Act of 1906, a sitting president can create a National Monument. President George W. Bush protected a sensitive part of the Hawaii islands when he created Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument — easier to see than say! In 1996, President Bill Clinton established the largest national monument, Grand StaircaseEscalante National Monument in Utah. This was a very unpopular move with people who wanted to develop coal reserves in the area. But Clinton saw the importance of conservation of special areas. “Sometimes progress is measured in mastering frontiers, but sometimes we must measure progress in protecting frontiers for our children and all children to come,” he said. Other presidents shared Clinton’s desire to save wild places for future generations. Theodore Roosevelt established the Grand Canyon as a national monument in 1908. Congress made it a national park in 1919. Now almost five million people each year enjoy one of the world’s greatest wonders. Franklin Roosevelt, Theodore’s distant cousin, signed a declaration to create Capital Reef National Monument, Utah in 1937. There were few funds for parks during the Great Depression so the area was managed by Zion National Park. By the 1970s, Capital Reef’s fortunes had changed. President Lyndon Johnson added more land to the monument, and in 1971, President Richard Nixon signed legislation to change Capital Reef from a monument to a national park. National monuments are part of the U.S. National Park System, but do not have the same level of funding or wildlife protection. Visitors, however, will still find great interpretation, signage and activities with fewer crowds! When I stumbled across Cedar Breaks National Monument in southwest Utah, I liked the intimate feel. Interpreters had time for oneon-one talks, and gate staff took time to suggest activities that matched my interests. At 3,000 metres, I passed up the strenuous hikes, but tips on finding wildlife led to quiet time with a marmot family. As I watched a marmot stuff grass into its mouth until its cheeks resembled a small child holding its breath, I appreciated a president’s desire to protect special areas and wondered if I

The restaurant has been using the same recipe for frozen key lime pie for half a century.
STORY FROM PAGE B1
BURGER: Pie is good, too For dessert, I tried the legendary frozen key lime pie. Our server said that the restaurant had been using the same recipe for their key lime pie for more than half a century. Dessert did make me feel like singing, but I held myself back for the sake of the other diners in earshot of our table. After dessert, we asked our server for a marker and some tape and scoured the walls and ceilings for an empty spot to tack up our offerings. I pasted my own signed George Washington on the ceiling — not far from the signed and framed bill left by John F. Kennedy Jr. Following dinner, we walked off the lunch calories with a pleasant stroll on the island’s nature trail and a climb up its historic water tower. The water tower at Cabbage Key is the last standing original water tower in the area. Years ago, almost every little island had a water tower, but all the others were destroyed by hurricanes and the one at Cabbage Key is the only one that has survived. After the stroll, we sat on the dock waiting for our tour boat to return and watched the yachts pull into the little harbour. Like the mischievous dog in the life-jacket we had seen earlier, we didn’t feel like leaving when our boat arrived. And even though my children did not try to make a break for it, I think they felt like it. It was hard to deny the appeal of Cabbage Key as a distinctive “Old Florida” hideaway.

MUMBAI, India — Starbucks will open its first outlet in India by the end of October in an upscale neighbourhood of Mumbai and has appointed a chief executive to head its India joint venture, the company said Friday. The store will be in Mumbai’s Horniman Circle neighbourhood, which boasts an Hermes store and a stately neighbourhood park. It will feature coffee sourced locally Avani Saglani Davda, who has worked for the Tata Group for over a decade, will be chief executive. Recently, she served in the vicechairman’s office of Tata Global Beverages, where she was responsible for marketing and business development and helped forge the Starbucks partnership. The joint venture said in January that it aimed to open 50 Starbucks outlets in India by year’s end. While that ambitious goal won’t be achieved, the store opening is a tangible vote of confidence in India’s beleaguered economy. New Delhi has been fighting to open its retailing market to foreign players.

DAVIDSON TAKES BUYOUT ST. LOUIS — John Davidson, who spent six years rebuilding the St. Louis Blues as president of hockey operations, is leaving the team. Davidson, 59, and the team agreed to a buyout of his contract, which has three years and approximately $6 million remaining on it. Terms were not disclosed Friday. “We would like to thank JD for his commitment and dedication to the Blues organization over the past six seasons,” team Chairman Tom Stillman said. “He has been instrumental in revitalizing the Blues franchise and has built a strong foundation for our organization, which will ensure the club’s success well into the future.”
Pats edge Rebels REGINA SCORES GAME-WINNING GOAL WITH 16 SECONDS REMAINING BY ADVOCATE STAFF Pats 3 Rebels 2 REGINA — Losing is painful. Losing in the dying seconds is extreme agony. “That’s an awful way to lose a hockey game,” groaned Red Deer Rebels head coach Jesse Wallin, after his club gave up a goal to Chandler Stephenson with 15.4 seconds remaining and dropped a 3-2 Western Hockey League decision to the Regina Pats on Friday. The Pats pressured their hosts with the clock winding down and Stephenson cashed in with his first of the season to send the majority of the 3,858 fans at the Brandt Centre home in a happy mood. “They got us hemmed in our zone and we weren’t able to get the puck out and ended up getting worn down,” said Wallin. “When the puck got to our net our defenceman blocked it but lost coverage in front of the net and they (Pats) capitalized. “You have 16 seconds left . . . you have to buckle down in that situation. You just can’t let up, you have to grind it out and dig in and take that extra step to get on a loose puck. You have to give that second effort to
win a battle. We just got soft on the shift.” The setback was extra frustrating considering the Rebels held a 29-21 advantage in shots and had every opportunity to post a positive result. “Parts of our game were real good,” said Wallin. “We took too many penalties again, that’s something we have to crack down on. And yet our penalty kill did a real good job for us.” Indeed, the Pats were zero-foreight on the power play. Unfortunately, the Rebels also fired blanks with a man advantage, going zero-for-six. “Early in the game our power play was too casual, but as the game went on, when we got power-play opportunities, we had our chances to capitalize but didn’t,” said Wallin. “Five-on-five we played a pretty good hockey game. We didn’t give up many shots, many opportunities.” Following a scoreless opening period in which the Rebels outshot their hosts 13-5, Regina captain Colton Jobke connected 3:02 into the middle frame. Red Deer struck back just over seven minutes later when Colten Mayor took a breakaway pass from Mathew Dumba and beat Pats netminder Matt Hewitt.
The Pats again moved in front when Dyson Stevenson directed a shot past Rebels netminder Bolton Pouliot at 3:39 of the third period. But again the Rebels responded, with defenceman Devan Fafard scoring his first of the season at 14:17, setting the stage for the Pats’ late marker. “We didn’t shoot the puck enough tonight. We passed up some opportunities, especially off the rush when we were entering the (offensive) zone,” said Wallin. “We were getting a bit too cute and wasted some opportunities to maybe create more offence. “But we certainly played well enough to win and that’s just a disappointing way to lose.” Now halfway through their six-game trip through the East Division, the Rebels are in Brandon tonight to face the Wheat Kings. Red Deer is in Moose Jaw on Sunday and conclude their lengthy jaunt with a Tuesday meeting with the Swift Current Broncos. “We have to regroup and go right back at it tomorrow. We don’t have time to hang our heads,” said Wallin. ● The Spokane Chiefs released netminder and Red Deer native Mac Engel on Friday. email@example.com

Edmonton 35 Hamilton 20 EDMONTON — The Edmonton Eskimos are back off of life support. Fred Stamps caught nine passes for 204 yards, including a crucial 48-yard touchdown grab in the fourth-quarter, as the Eskimos stayed alive in the hunt for a playoff spot with a muchneeded 35-20 victory over the Hamilton Tiger Cats on Friday. The Eskimos snapped a fivegame losing skid to improve to 6-8 and move two points back of Saskatchewan, which is third in the CFL’s West Division. More important, they moved two points ahead of the Ticats for a possible cross-over postseason spot through the East Division. “It’s a very big win,” said Eskimos head coach Kavis Reed. “We knew the gravity of this game. We knew if we lost it that we would really be trying to roll a boulder up a hill. It’s simple. Give your playmakers a chance to make plays and put the ball in their hands. We weren’t doing that earlier this season. Tonight we took our shots.” The Eskimos have been criticized for not utilizing Stamps enough this season, but that was not the case this night. “I want the opportunity to catch the ball and make the play,” Stamps said. “I don’t want anything forced my way because that is how you get in trouble, but when it comes your way you want to make the plays. I’ve just been waiting on my opportunity. “We needed this win very badly to get momentum and

this province.” Hamilton fell to 5-9 on the season. “In the final estimation, across the board, the coaches and players, we just didn’t play well enough,” said Tiger Cats head coach George Cortez. “It’s disappointing every time you lose. There is pressure every

Braves throw away wild winner-take-all playoff THE ASSOCIATED PRESS St. Louis 6 Atlanta 3 ATLANTA — David Freese and the St. Louis Cardinals rediscovered their post-season touch. Chipper Jones and the Braves kept throwing the ball away. And the Atlanta fans turned Turner Field into a trash heap. They said anything could happen in baseball’s first wildcard playoff. Boy, did it ever. In a game protested by the Braves, Matt Holliday homered and the defending World Series champion Cardinals took advantage of three Atlanta throwing errors — the most crucial of them by the retiring Jones — to take the winner-take-all playoff 6-3 on Friday. MLB executive Joe Torre said the protest had been denied. St. Louis advanced to face Washington in the best-of-five division round, beginning Sunday at Busch Stadium. The Braves are done for this season, the recipients of another heartbreaking loss in the playoffs. The 40-year-old Jones is all done, period. He managed an infield hit in his final at-bat but threw away a double play ball in the fourth, which led to a three-run inning that wiped out Atlanta’s early 2-0 lead behind

Umpire Sam Holbrook, right, listens to Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez, left, after a call during the eighth inning of the National League wild card playoff baseball game against the St. Louis Cardinals, Friday in Atlanta. Kris Medlen. “Ultimately, I feel I’m the one to blame,” Jones said. “That should have been a tailor-made double play.” But this one-and-done game will be remembered for the eighth, when a disputed call
on a fly ball that dropped in short left field cost the Braves a chance at extending Jones’ career. The Braves thought they had the bases loaded with one out after the ball dropped between two fielders, who appeared
to get mixed up over who had called for it. But left-field umpire Sam Holbrook called Andrelton Simmons out under the infield fly rule — even though the ball landed at least 50 feet beyond the dirt. When the fans realized what had happened, they littered the field with beers cups, popcorn holders and other trash, leading to a 19-minute delay as the Cardinals retreated to their dugout. “It was scary at first,” St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina said. “I’ve never seen that before.” The stoppage only delayed the inevitable. When play finally resumed, Brian McCann walked but Michael Bourn struck out to end the threat. Dan Uggla grounded out with two aboard in the ninth to end it, leading to one more wave of trash throwing as the umps scurried off the field — probably feeling a lot like those replacement NFL refs who caught so much grief. The infield fly is a complicated rule, designed to prevent infielders from intentionally dropping a popup with more than one runner on base and perhaps get an extra out. No one could ever remember it being applied like this. And, after past postseasons dotted by contested calls, this play will certainly another slew of October cries for more instant replay.

B6 RED DEER ADVOCATE Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012
BY DANNY RODE ADVOCATE STAFF RDC Kings head coach Aaron Schulha knew when he put together the annual Ramada Inns Challenge Cup men’s volleyball tournament he wasn’t going to get many of the top college teams in the province. Including the Kings there’s only four Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference teams on hand. But what he did get was four solid alumni squads, which is just fine with Schulha. “It’s bene tough the last couple of years to get college teams as there’s just so many college tournaments, but we got four quality alumni teams,” he said. “It’s good in that they may not be then most physical teams, although that team (the U of Calgary Alumni) certainly is, but they think the game at a high level and that’s where our guys need to be. We have to be smarter IQ-wise and not just swing as hard as we can or go full speed all the time. “What I want to get from the alumni is a match where the opposition are students of the game. That’s where we need to be and playing teams of that calibre can only help us.” That was evident during the opening day of the two-day tournament. The Kings weren’t near their best as they opened the day against the Olds College Broncos, but pulled out a 25-20, 25-11 victory. They needed to be on top of their game against the U of C just to record a 25-20, 22-25, 15-13 victory. “We were certainly more crisp than we were against Olds,” said Schulha. “I told them after the Olds match that the second set was more like the way we should have played. The first half of the first set
was the worst volleyball I’ve seen in this gym in a long time. They shouldn’t be happy just because they won the second set 25-11.” Chris Osborn didn’t play against Olds and he was a force against the U of C. “That’s as good as I’ve seen him play,” said Schulha. “I think he gets up for teams that match him physically. That’s a good sign and if we get him to play at that level against weaker opponents he’ll be a tough guy to stop.” Overall the Kings looked more like themselves. “It was a fight and I expect the same tomorrow (today) against our alumni,” said Schulha. “It will be a battle for first place in the pool.” The RDC Alumni A team, which includes former national team players Brock Daviduk and Nick Cundy, defeated the U of C 20-25, 25-18, 15-13 and Olds 25-16, 26-24. Schulha also played with the Alumni and the fact Cundy and Daviduk were on the squad brought back fond memories. “Our undefeated team of 2003 and also when I was out there I had thoughts of the previous year as well,” he said. “It was fun to have them here.” The other pool saw Lakeland College Rustlers go 2-0 as they downed the University of Alberta, Augustana Vikings 25-21, 25-20 and the RDC Alumni B 25-20, 20-25, 15-13. The Alumni B team also lost the Central Alberta Christian High School (CACHS) Alumni 20-25, 22-25. CACHS lost to the Vikings 20-25, 25-23, 11-15. Action continued today at 9 a.m. with the quarterfinals at 12:30 and 2:30 p.m., the semifinals at 4:30 p.m. and the final at 8:30 p.m. firstname.lastname@example.org

RED DEER ADVOCATE Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012 B7
Orioles win first playoff game in 15 years BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ARLINGTON, Texas — Buck Showalter and the Baltimore Orioles will get another chance to overtake the New York Yankees. The surprising O’s have already beaten some big odds, getting past the two-time defending AL champion Texas Rangers and their Japanese ace, Yu Darvish, in the win-or-go-home wildcard playoff. Joe Saunders pitched effectively into the sixth inning at a place where he had never won, Adam Jones delivered the tiebreaking sacrifice fly and the Orioles, in the playoffs for the first time in 15 years, eliminated the Rangers 5-1 Friday night. The Orioles advance to play the East champion Yankees, the AL’s top seed — the teams split 18 games this season. The best-of-five division series starts Sunday at Camden Yards. The upstart Orioles spent the whole second half chasing New York, never passing them and falling just short in a neck-and-neck race for the division title. Turns out, the Yankees haven’t brushed off these Birds just yet. And just that quickly, the season is over the Rangers, who were in first place for a majors-high 178 days this season. Texas loaded the bases with two outs in the ninth before David Murphy flied out to end it. The Rangers lost the AL West crown on the final day of the regular season, after being swept in three games at Oakland for a stretch of nine losses their last 13 games. Their worst slump of the season came at the wrong time for Ron Washington’s team, which a week ago had a four-game division lead with six games to play. Because of that, they couldn’t
avoid the AL’s new winner-take-all post-season opener, and then couldn’t get past their Orioles with their top pitcher on the mound. When the Rangers committed more than $107 million last winter to acquire Darvish, they did so with the anticipation he’d be on the mound for many big games. They never would have expected him being outdueled in a playoff game by Saunders, a late-season addition by the Orioles who had lost all six of his previous starts with a 9.38 ERA at Rangers Ballpark. Saunders quickly gave up the Orioles’ 1-0 lead in the first, but that was the only run he allowed in 5 2-3 innings. The left-hander struck out four and walked one. Even though it was the post-season, the Orioles stuck to the regular Friday night uniforms — including black tops and caps with script O’s instead of the traditional smiling cartoon bird. Four pitches into the game, they had a lead against Darvish, who struck out seven in 6 2-3 innings. Nate McLouth grounded Darvish’s first pitch toward first baseman Michael Young. The longest-tenured Rangers player got charged with an error when he tried to backhand the ball, which ricocheted off the heel of his glove and away from him. McLouth stole second base on the third pitch. J.J. Hardy then drove him in by grounding a hard single up the middle — the Orioles had only one more hit until a sequence in the sixth that needed some interpretation. The O’s had consecutive singles to start the sixth before Jones’ sacrifice fly made it 2-1. After backing up the plate when Jones hit the ball in the air, Darvish started stretching his shoulder and rolling his neck. Washington and pitch-

Hardy (2) celebrates with Matt Wieters (32) after Hardy scored against the Texas Rangers on a sacrifice fly by Adam Jones during the sixth inning of an American League wild-card playoff baseball game Friday, Oct. 5, 2012, in Arlington, Texas. ing coach Mike Maddux went out to the mound to try to figure out what was wrong when their pitcher still looked uncomfortable. Darvish’s translator, Joe Furukawa, was also on his way out before initially
being waved back by umpires. The six umpires then conferred before allowing the translator to come out while Darvish kept stretching and then threw a couple of pitches.

NHL’s CBA talks resume with secret meeting in Toronto TORONTO — The NHL’s collective bargaining talks resumed unexpectedly and the sides are committed to staying in touch through the weekend. An unannounced session with the primary negotiators was held at union headquarters in Toronto on Friday, with commissioner Gary Bettman and deputy commissioner Bill Daly dropping in on NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr and special counsel Steve Fehr. The group met in both the morning and afternoon in an effort “to move this process forward,” according to a union spokesman, and they are expected to keep in touch by phone over the coming days. Both sides seemed optimistic that another negotiating session would be scheduled for next week. The NHL lockout is heading into its fourth week and has already forced the league to scratch 82 regular-season games off the schedule between Oct. 11 and Oct. 24. In announcing those cancellations on Thursday, the league offered a conciliatory note to fans frustrated by the sport’s fourth work stoppage. “The game deserves better, the fans deserve better and the people who derive income from their connection to the NHL deserve better,” Daly said. “We remain committed to doing everything in our power to forge an agreement that is fair to the play-
ers, fair to the teams and good for our fans. ... “We are committed to getting this done.”

MS victim Taylor looks forward to first CFL start against Calgary
Red Sox interested in Farrell
SURREY, B.C. — Courtney Taylor began to feel the twitches in his right eye in 2008. They prevented the receiver from seeing the ball the way he normally would. Taylor was playing for the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks at the time. Little did he know then that they would lead to him being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, an often crippling disease that attacks the central nervous system and often affects a person’s vision. Taylor was released by the Seahawks in 2009 and has struggled to return to the gridiron. Taylor will suit up for his first game with the B.C. Lions (9-4) on Saturday as they host the surging Calgary Stampeders (8-5) in a battle for first place in the CFL’s West Division. He joined B.C. on Oct. 11, 2011, but has yet to play a down in the regular season. “I’ve been waiting for this for about three years,” said Taylor. The chance to shine in such an important game comes after Taylor searched in vain for a break. After being released by the Seahawks, he spent two years out of football, working as a mover in Seattle while completing a degree in business administration. “I came from the streets. ... I was at home. When I got this opportunity, I was excited to come back and play football. That’s how I view it. I get an opportunity to play and do something I love, so I want to take advantage of my opportunity (against Calgary.)” He will start in place of Arland Bruce (concussion-like symptoms) as the Lions attempt to atone for
BOSTON — John Farrell sat in the visitors’ dugout at Fenway Park as talk intensified that he might be working in the other dugout next year. The Toronto manager looked up at two dozen reporters a month ago and told them that as Boston’s pitching coach for four years under Terry Francona he learned an important lesson: think of the players first in making managerial decisions. If you do that, he said, “you probably are guided in the right direction to do the right thing.” Since that session before the opener of the Blue Jays’ three-game sweep of the Red Sox, Bobby Valentine has been fired as Boston’s manager and Farrell has emerged as the leading candidate to take over.

DOROTHY DICKSON HAS A STRONG LEGACY OF CONNECTING MANKIND WITH THE ENVIRONMENT
BY MURRAY CRAWFORD ADVOCATE STAFF If you were to ask Dorothy Dickson’s parents where her love of nature started, they would have told an old family joke about a two-year-old. “They said that when they were cross with me I went out and told the banana tree in the garden about it,” said Dickson. But the now 84-year-old naturalist and environmentalist considers it a lifelong pursuit that has always been a part of who she is. “I think I very early got interested in natural history and nature,” said Dickson. “By the time I was 10, I was getting books and wanting to know the names of things. I don’t really remember a time when I wasn’t interested.” Recently she was honoured by the Red Deer River Naturalists for her work with an Owl Award, which is given to people who have shown a longtime commitment to environmental issue education, unsung support of the group and have advanced the work of the society. Dickson was born in Australia, but when she was five her family moved to the United Kingdom. She lived there through the Second World War and came to Canada in 1963. She and her husband and two daughters started in Halifax, but moved to London, Ont., in 1965 and then came west, living in Calgary from 1968 to 1985, Innisfail from 1985 to 2003 and then moving to Red Deer, where she has lived ever since. Within two years of arriving in Calgary, she helped co-found the Calgary Eco-Centre for Environmental Education and Information. She served on the board of the institution until 1983. One of the first projects she helped the group undertake was introducing recycling to Calgary. In 1972, it was one of the first recycling projects in Canada. Initially, high school students and prison inmates made boxes that were set up at churches and only paper and cardboard were collected. Later, they would expand into glass and metal. It evolved into Canada’s first blue box program, which at the time was a six-month demonstration project with a rented city garbage truck doing pickups. The program wasn’t followed up by the City of Calgary at the time. A particularly ambitious project during her tenure with the eco-centre was to provide curriculum materials focusing on environmental issues in both science and social studies classes. “We realized the school cur-

Red Deer River Naturalist member Dorothy Dickson is the most recent recipient of the Red Deer River Naturalists’ Owl Award. riculum didn’t really mention the environment,” said Dickson. “We decided to get this grant and told the provincial government what we were doing. I don’t think they realized that we were pretty knowledgeable and determined.” The group, six volunteers and 15 university students, added environmental information to the curriculum for Grades 1 to 12. They wrote up a teacher’s handbook and a student’s workbook for every grade. “Then we took them to the provincial government,” said Dickson. “They said, ‘Oh yes, those are very nice. We’ll use them when we have time and the money to implement it.’ So we said to heck with them and raised the money.” Dickson said the Alberta Fish and Game Association supported the move as well, which helped add the environmental angle to the curriculum. Within six months, the curriculum additions were in every classroom in Alberta. In the early 1970s, she was asked to do a talk about the environment and ecology in a school and she was told she would have a partner for the talks she had never met before. “We met on the front porch of the school and he had long hair, a T-shirt with slogans on and tattered jeans,” said Dickson. “I was dressed in a very polite business suit. We just stood and looked at each other and roared with laughter.” Out of that laughter came the realization that environmental issues bridged all ages and economic means. “We went around pretty well
every high school in Calgary and lectured together and it went over really well because I gave my scientific point of view of what it meant to us and he came in with the young people’s point of view,” said Dickson. When she moved to Innisfail, she immediately joined the Red Deer River Naturalists Society. Through her work in Calgary, she had already met and knew a lot of the members. In Red Deer, she has been involved in several organizations, including the southeast sector traffic committee, parks planning, environmental management planning and ReThink Red Deer, as well as being involved in the discussion over the Molly Banister Drive Extension. “I think if you’re a naturalist and you love the wilderness, there comes a time when something you love is being dug up and you look in the mirror and say ‘OK, stop grumbling and do something. What are you going to do about it,’ ” said Dickson. But as an activist, Dickson said she tries to listen to the other side and present reasonable solutions. Nature is what has driven, and continues to drive, Dickson to be active and involved. “It’s just that other species contribute so much to the environment that we are being stupid to spoil their habitat,” said Dickson. When she first came to Alberta, the first cause Dickson was involved with was planning the development of several national parks. She took part in consultations and hearings on legislation, policy and regulations.
Dickson was the first person to win an environmental Alberta Achievement Award, which was presented to her in 1980 by then premier Peter Lougheed. But she said the Owl Award, her most recent honour, meant a lot to her. “Yes I’ve had other awards and they may be bigger, but it’s the one your friends and peers give you that mean the most,” said Dickson. “They’re the people who really know you. That’s why the Owl Award meant a lot to me.” In her acceptance speech, she made two positive points. “One was that if you’re a naturalist there is so much to learn that you are never bored, you just have to look out the window and you’ll find something interesting to look at,” said Dickson. “The other things is you meet lots of interesting, knowledgeable people.” Other awards that Dickson has won include the Clean Calgary Annual Award in 1980; Loran L. Goulden Memorial Award in 1997; Douglas H. Plimpton Award and Honourary Lifetime Membership in 1997; Alberta Environmental Protection Award in 1999; Honourary Life Membership of the Federation of Alberta Naturalists in 2002; and the Alberta Wilderness Association’s Wilderness Defenders Award in 2003. She said many of the parks in Red Deer are because of work by the Red Deer River Naturalists. “They’ve done a lot to protect the natural history within Red Deer,” said Dickson. “I’ve always admired them for that.” mcrawford@reddeeradvocate. com
Ecovision focused on new greenhouse at school BY RANDY FIEDLER ADVOCATE STAFF Ecological vision became ecological reality at École Secondaire Lacombe Composite High School on Friday. The school’s Ecovision Club opened its geodesic Lacombe Community Greenhouse to grow produce and fish. Ecovision Club leader Louise van Dam, 17, said the opening ends more than two years of negotiations with Wolf Creek School District trustees, sponsors and community organizations. “It’s not only a reminder that through perseverance, you can achieve greatness, but it’s also a standing symbol for the school and community that we can create something beautiful,” the Grade 12 student told a schoolwide assembly.

Teacher Steven Schultz explains the many unique features of École Secondaire Lacombe Composite High School’s new Ecovision geodesic greenhouse to students and visitors on Friday. helped students to ensure the greenhouse met Ecovision’s mandate of educational impact, environmental sustainability and lowered carbon footprint and community involvement. The club was effusive in its praise and thanks to the more than 30 community organizations that sponsored construction. “We received between $75,000 and $100,000 in donated labour and supplies and
the structure itself cost about $25,000,” Schultz told those touring the dome. The six-metre-tall, 10-metrediameter structure’s features include underground climate batteries to store heat for later use, polycarbonate walls for greater heat retention and a north wall to reflect more weak winter sun. Just as the vegetables grown will be used in the school’s cafeteria, so too will the tilapia
raised in the dome’s fishtank, while the nutrient-rich water will be recycled as fertilizer. Students will spend the winter making vegetable boxes as well as planning the outdoor garden and classroom that will surround the greenhouse on the school’s west side. Schultz said the school is also working on a new agricultural credit course involving the greenhouse. firstname.lastname@example.org

Apocalyptic visions at Chernobyl KIEV, Ukraine — The apocalyptic visions begin just inside the doors of the Ukrainian National Chernobyl Museum and many of them lead into the Book of Revelation. The final pages of Christian Scripture are full of angels, trumpets, flames, thunder, lighting, earthquakes and other catastrophes. In this museum, the key is in the eighth chapter: “And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters. And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.” When Ukrainians translate “wormwood” into their own language, it becomes “chernobyl.” It’s easy to connect the two when discussing the legacy of pain that followed the 1986 disaster at the Chernobyl Power Station north of Kiev, when explosions and fires at the reactor core released a plume of radioactive debris. Soviet officials claim that a mere 31 died. Ukrainians mock this number, saying it’s impossible to calculate the long-term fallout in cancers, birth defects and other forms of human suffering. “The catastrophe at Chernobyl station took its victims before their time,” said Archpriest Andrei Tkachev of St. Agapit of Pechersk Orthodox Church in Kiev. “Man is supposed to meet death in his own time, when he has a chance to prepare to meet God. That kind of death is a gift from God — a good death.

RELIGION “That is not what happened for many of the victims of Chernobyl.” The museum opened on April 26, 1992, the fifth anniversary of the disaster and soon after the Soviet Union’s collapse. The exhibits include 7,000 artifacts from the 76 towns and villages — with 76 churches, in this historically Orthodox culture — that were razed in the radiation-tainted resettlement zone. The door into a large chamber dedicated to the families and children of Chernobyl leads to the church iconostasis, with a radiation suit hanging in place of the Archangel Michael and barbed wire and a contamination sign blocking the way to the altar. High overhead is an icon of St. Nicholas, the patron saint of endangered children. The altar is gone, replaced by a boat — to carry souls over the waters of death -- full of children’s toys. Under the boat, the blackness is full of the icons of saints. The Chernobyl disaster was especially poignant, said Tkachev, because it struck a region that for many symbolized the innocence and safety of the past. “The people here were simple people. They didn’t have writers and journalists to tell their stories,” he said. “This is an attempt to tell their story, using what they left behind when they were forced to flee the homes, their schools and their churches. ...

“Modern life separates a man who has deep faith from a man who has little. In these villages, life and faith was simply combined and you can see that here.” In one of the starkest images — over a map of the stricken region — the melting reactor literally shatters a famous icon of the Virgin Mary holding the Christ child, while an apocalyptic storm swirls around her. “We are tempted to think that fire and water and all the elements of nature are at our command, but that is not true,” said Tkachev, outside the final exhibit hall. “We can become victims. ... The more technologies are in our lives, the more danger there is that we become their servants, even their slaves.” The archpriest stroked his beard, thinking of another way of stating the ultimate message of this sobering tribute to lessons learned at Chernobyl. Finally he offered a litany of simple images. If a man builds a bicycle and it breaks while he is riding it, then he will be hurt when he falls, said Tkachev. If he builds an airplane and it breaks, he will almost certainly die when it crashes. “Now, if we build a nuclear reactor in our backyard and it breaks, then the catastrophe will kill many and it may last into future generations,” he said. “What this teaches us is that we must fear God and try to be humble about the things that we build with our own hands.” Terry Mattingly directs the Washington Journalism Center at the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities.

Tattered’s approach polished BAND APPROACHES ROCK ’N’ ROLL AS A BUSINESS, PROMOTING TUNES THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA BY LANA MICHELIN ADVOCATE STAFF Thanks to the reach of social media, Olds-based hard rock band Tattered has a fan base that stretches from the U.K. to Uruguay — even though the group hasn’t toured further than Calgary. Lead singer Brad Rempel said he approaches rock ’n’ roll as a business, with marketing and promotion at the top of his priority list. As the result of spending three hours a day flogging Tattered through Twitter, Facebook and other social media sites, Rempel said his two-year-old group is now being played on 107 radio stations in 10 countries, including Italy, Greece and Ethiopia. “They’re playing us on Ethiopia’s first rock station,” added the 27-year-old, who runs a painting company in Olds with 14 employees as a day job. Some day, the married father of two hopes to be able to make music his full-time gig — and it doesn’t seem like an impossible stretch. Group members already look like rock stars, since they were recently sponsored by British rock clothier Fable Label, which sends Tattered free stuff to wear on stage. Rempel said the U.K. is where his Central Alberta band gets the most radio play, magazine reviews and has the biggest fan base, so there’s talk of doing a tour there in a couple of years. “I’m very committed to social media. I’m mostly on Twitter on my lunch hour or after work,” said the singer, who’s usually tweeting (with the hashtag @Tattered_Band) his thanks to the group’s army of fans for helping promote gigs through re-tweets. “Lots of people are helping us. We couldn’t do it without them.” Marketing efforts aside, the group that’s described as being “on the cusp of progressive rock” wouldn’t be as big internationally if people didn’t like its music.
TIM BURTON PAYS TRIBUTE TO CLASSIC HORROR FILMS IN FRANKENWEENIE BY LINDA BARNARD SPECIAL TO THE ADVOCATE
Frankenweenie Three stars (out of four) Rated: PG Tim Burton’s comic monster movie mash-up Frankenweenie tosses blackand-white bouquets at the golden age of Hollywood horror. And it shows revenge is a dish best served in 3D with this entertaining stop-motion animated feature reborn from the live-action short that got him fired from studio Disney in 1984. Back when Burton made his Frankenweenie short starring Shelley Duvall and Daniel Stern, he didn’t get much studio love. Your stuff is too dark, the brass
And Rempel makes no bones about his band aiming to “produce stuff that will sell on the music scene.” Tattered’s sound — a collision between radio rock and hard rock, verging on metal — is finding an audience on 106.7 The Drive in Red Deer and certain radio stations in B.C., Ontario and in Montreal. Last year, Rempel said Tattered was also one of 50 finalists out of 10,000 entries in Canada’s biggest radio contest, Supernova. When the group recently played at Lacombe’s Alberta’s Own concert of independent bands, its members — bassist and Red Deer College music program graduate Graham Harper, lead guitarist Tim Daigle, rhythm guitarist Ben Braun and his brother, drummer Clayton Braun — received great feedback from fans and club owners. Rempel heard that people like Tattered’s melding of radio rock hooks with hard rock screams, which is reminiscent of the bands Rise Against or Avenged Sevenfold. “They like that we mix the two together.” As can be imagined, rage is usually the wellspring of Tattered’s tunes. Rempel stressed that he’s happily married, but tends to use everyday frustrations to fuel his lyrics — which are set to music as a collaboration between band members. Upon writing Replaceable for the group’s first EP, for instance, he had to reassure his spouse, “It’s not that I want to replace you, it’s just how I felt at that moment.” By taking his anger out in songwriting, Rempel said, “it’s gone and I feel refreshed.” Tattered, which is recording a debut full-length album due out early next year, performs on Saturday, Oct. 27, at Tracks Pub in Olds. The band’s website is www.TatteredMusic.com. firstname.lastname@example.org
Tattered has a fan base that stretches from the U.K. to Uruguay.
at the mouse house pronounced. So Burton packed his pencils and went elsewhere to make the likes of Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands, along with animated offerings including the Oscar-nominated Corpse Bride. Boo to you, too, Disney. Burton and Disney made up long ago with The Nightmare Before Christmas and now we have the reanimation (in both senses) of the once-dead Frankenweenie, the story of a likable grade school science nerd named Victor Frankenstein (voiced by Charlie Tahan) who figures out an electrifying way to bring his beloved and recently dead pooch, Sparky, back to life. It’s the third stop-motion animation from the filmmaker’s fertile mind and, like Burton’s original, Frankenweenie embraces an earlier black-and-white time with dramatic shadows and camera angles. It’s pretty much a shot-for-shot recreation of the 1984 short, expanded with a story by frequent Burton col-

Chloe Albert to share at songwriter’s circle BY LANA MICHELIN ADVOCATE STAFF Sometimes songwriting can be confessional — just ask Chloe Albert. The Edmonton singer/songwriter has been performing tunes from her first album, The Dedicated State, since 2008. And she’s come to realize, after doing so many tours and festivals, that there were a lot of personal ballads on that CD. Some, such as Firelight, are about a previous love affair that went wrong. Albert, who’s been happily married for more than three years to another man, admitted it’s kind of funny to revisit those old feelings every time she sings the song. Now that she’s writing for her next album — to be released in the spring — Albert is aiming to be a little less confessional. “I try to draw from other people’s experiences, too. I’d like to keep the line a little blurry, so it’s not all about me. “You don’t want it to be like someone’s reading your diary.” The Edmonton singer/songwriter, who won best emerging artist at the 2008 Canadian Folk Music Awards, will be sharing some of her inspirations at
a songwriter’s circle on Sunday, Oct. 14, at the Davenport Church of Christ in Red Deer. Albert will be performing along with Radio Music Award winner Rob Heath and the quirky, folk/pop duo The Skips. She’s looking forward to opening up about her music, which is consciously
getting happier for her new album. “It’s not exactly rockier, but it’s definitely more upbeat than the last record.” The trend started when Albert recorded two tracks for the compilation album, The Engadine Sessions: Come to the Mountain.
The CD spun out of the Magic in the Meadows festival that’s held each summer in Kananaskis Country. “It was requested that all the songs be positive, with a good vibe.” And that’s carried over to Albert’s latest solo recordings. Even the tune Don’t Want to Say Good-bye, about leaving her husband to go on tour, is pretty upbeat, said Albert — so is Something Magnificent, about appreciating the little things “and not walking around with a pouty face.” The singer just turned 30 and is feeling “great” about the landmark birthday — despite comments she recently heard at a party. “I was in this deep conversation with a gentleman who must have thought I was about 22. . . . He went on to say that once you hit 30 in the music business, it’s all over.” Albert doesn’t know if the guy’s ever heard of the Rolling Stones or Bob Dylan. “Maybe he was thinking about Britney Spears.” Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. show at 68 Donlevy Ave. are $10 at the door. email@example.com

Hotspurs a pride and joy FIFA Soccer 13 Platforms: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, Wii, 3DS and Vita Genre: Sports Publisher: EA Sports ESRB Rating: E, for Everyone Grade: four stars (out of five) You can pick from whichever La Liga, English Premier League or Major League Soccer squad you fancy, but the Tottenham Hotspurs will always be my pride and joy in both real life and in FIFA Soccer 13, the latest entry in EA Sports’ long domination of soccer video games. Beyond some updates to the menu system and few gameplay tweaks, not much appears different from last year’s edition, but when you are killing it on a yearly basis like EA is, I guess the mark of success becomes how close to perfection one can get. Most of the game’s modes return unchanged from last year, which is acceptable but a tad disappointing, seeing that not one of them was 100 per cent. Gamers will see a different pitch, where the improved physics engine from FIFA Soccer 12 creates the most naturalflowing game of soccer you’ll likely ever play (that is, until next year’s release, I suppose). Granted, this makes scoring lots of amazinglooking goals rather easy, which is fine when playing against friends, but in serious online leagues creates havoc and veers awfully close to arcade
GAME ON gaming instead of simulation. Pro Evolution Soccer continues to push forward and challenge for the top place in soccer gaming, but for another year FIFA remains the titleholder and a mustown for soccer fans.
Resident Evil 6 Platforms: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC Genre: Action Publisher: Capcom ESRB Rating: M, for Mature Grade: two stars
Capcom’s new release, Resident Evil 6, is rated M, for Mature. EA Sports’ new release, FIFA Soccer 13, is rated E, for Everyone.
Since the dawn of this column, I’ve talked about how my buddy Luke welcomes the arrival of another Resident Evil game like some people celebrate a child’s birth. I was a hard-core Nintendo guy until he showed me the famous “dogs jumping through the window” scene. I knew then that gaming was way more awesome than just Mario collecting coins. In this release, all the pieces of the puzzle are present to create a thrill-
ing Resident Evil adventure, but instead of nicely interlocking, they are jammed together, creating a game that lacks cohesion. Simply put, everything takes too long in this game. I’ve never complained about a game creating a cinematic atmosphere, and RE6 does this amazingly well, but the action gets interrupted by cutscenes way too often. I’m not a huge fan of quick-time button sequences, and I can’t recall a recent game that more times than not
rips the outcome from your hands and places it in the controls of a quick-time sequence. RE6 strings together long stretches of cutscenes, quick-time events and passive action that leaves you rarely feeling like you are playing the game so much as just watching it all pass by. And the game, sadly, doesn’t invoke the moments of true “fight or flight” terror that previous editions did. Longtime fans will have reason to dive head-first into the gory muck to see how it un-
folds, but this marks the second straight RE title (Operation Raccoon City being the other) that tests fans’ patience with
the franchise. Follow Chris Campbell at twitter.com/campbler or email him at game_on_ firstname.lastname@example.org.

Victor’s doting parents (Short and O’Hara) wish he was as good at making friends as he is at science. Perhaps morose next-door neighbour Elsa Van Helsing (Winona Ryder) could fit the bill. But she’s too busy avoiding her blowhard uncle, the town’s bombastic mayor (Short, again). You can easily lose yourself in a game of Name That Classic as the story unfolds, with nods to everything from Frankenstein to Gremlins, The Fly and Godzilla’s nemesis Gamera, with some Sea Monkeys thrown in. High-concept and stylish, Frankenweenie is a playlist of films and characters from Burton’s movieloving childhood. There’s a Valentine to his hero, Vincent Prince, with creepy teacher Mr. Rzykruski (voiced by Martin Landau). As much a parody as genre love-in, the laughs come frequently. Parents shouldn’t worry too much about how kids will react to the scene where Sparky meets car and heads to the big fire hydrant in the sky. Victor’s grief and Sparky’s loss are handled with tact and care for young feelings. It’s the scary scenes at the climax, including a shrieking horror hybrid bat-cat, that will likely cause knocking knees. Victor’s work on the patch job required to get Sparky ready for the ultimate science experiment creates a lovable hound who can still turn the head of the poufy poodle next door, the perpetually nervous Persephone. Sparky isn’t the only thing stitched together from spare parts. The story gets its extra layers from a long list of movie sources to set the action during the run-up to the school science fair where Victor’s rivals, led by boy genius Toshiaki, are inspired to try to replicate the experiment when they find out Sparky is back among the living. They’re unsure how Victor did it but figure it has something to do RDC Theatre and with Sparky’s recently RE/MAX central alberta present acquired neck bolts and New Holland’s propensity for lightning strikes. Maybe that rickety old mill on the hill has something to do with the lavish lightning, one kid observes, which is sure to set Frankenstein fans to grinning. The story occasionally lumbers along stifflegged like Mary Shelley’s monster, and the sly winks to other films are sometimes a tad too twee but Burton has earned the right to make a personal film. Frankenweenie has his signature on every frame. After all, who can blame Burton for clasping his hands and crying “It’s alive!” to see his beloved 1984 creature rise from the cinematic grave?

LOCAL JOBLESS RATE DIPPED SLIGHTLY IN SEPTEMBER The unemployment rate for the Red Deer region moved slightly lower in September, slipping to 4.8 per cent from 4.9 per cent in August. That compares with a seasonally adjusted provincial average of 4.4 per cent, which was unchanged from August. A year ago, the local jobless rate was 5.2 per cent. Among Alberta’s eight regions, BanffJasper-Rocky Mountain House had the lowest unemployment rate last month, at 2.8 per cent. Camrose-Drumheller was next at 3.6 per cent, Athabasca-Grande Prairie came in at 4.3 per cent, the Edmonton region was 4.5 per cent, LethbridgeMedicine Hat tied with Red Deer at 4.8 per cent, Wood Buffalo-Cold Lake was 4.9 per cent and the Calgary region was 5.1 per cent. Alberta continues to have the lowest unemployment rate among the provinces. The national figure was 7.4 per cent, up 0.1 percentage points from August. Alberta’s labour force increased by 2,400 people from August to September, and employment in the province jumped by 2,100. Over the past year, employment in Alberta has grown by 37,400, which accounted for 21.4 per cent of Canada’s employment growth during that period.
HBC TO LAY OFF 210 TORONTO EMPLOYEES TORONTO — Canadian retailing giant Hudson’s Bay Co. is laying off 210 employees in Toronto as the company moves its information services department to the United States. HBC says it will transfer 130 jobs from the Canadian information services department to an office in St. Louis, Missouri. Another 80 jobs will be eliminated. The layoffs come on top of the thousands of Zellers employees who will lose their jobs at the company as it shutters the majority of its stores, many which will convert to Target stores. Target purchased the leasehold interests of 189 sites currently operated by Zellers Inc. and it says about $10 million to $11 million will be invested to remodel each facility.
As the golf season winds down maintenance workers find the time to do some of the work on the course that can not be done during the busy summer golfing season.

SOME PEOPLE IN THE INDUSTRY BELIEVE THE REGION IS OVERSATURATED BY HARLEY RICHARDS ADVOCATE BUSINESS EDITOR Every community may want a golf course, but can they support one? The Advocate’s 2012 golf guide listed 36 clubs in Central Alberta — spread from Wetaskiwin to Olds and Stettler to Rocky Mountain House. The tally has decreased since the guide was published in April, with Eckville’s Fairways at Last Hill Golf and Country Club falling by the wayside this spring and Pheasantback Golf and Country Club coming under a receiver’s padlock last month. Some believe the number is still too
high. “I think we have too many golf courses in our region, I really do,” said Lesley McMahon, manager of Balmoral Golf Club. Blair Felesky, general manager at Pine Hills Golf Club, agrees. “I think there’s going to be a consolidation taking place over the next few years,” he said. “I think there will be fewer courses built down the road, I think you probably will see some courses change their business model, and you probably will see some close.” Such an outlook might have seemed overly pessimistic prior to the economic downturn, when there was lots of money for golf and other recreational pursuits. But golf course operators now realize how dependent their businesses are on discretionary spending. “I wouldn’t have said five years ago that there are too many courses in Central Alberta,” said Dave Clark, general manager
of the Lacombe Golf and Country Club. Now he’s not so sure. “The industry is huge, but it exists on disposable income.” Some course are probably at greater risk than others. Those close to Red Deer — like River Bend Golf Club, Balmoral and Alberta Springs Golf Resort — can count on a predictable stream of urban players; as the distance from the city increases, the flow diminishes. “The courses on the outer fringe are going to go first,” predicted Ryan Vold, director of golf at Wolf Creek Golf Resort. Todd Jurak, head pro and director of golf at Sylvan Lake Golf and Country Club, said rural courses have to work harder to survive. “It’s more challenging, because you have to create ways to get those customers to your doorstep.”

Canada, U.S. report strong job gains BY JULIAN BELTRAME THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — Canada’s domestic economy turned in one of the strongest job creation months of the year in September, adding an eye-popping 52,100 new jobs that was five times more than economists expected. But it was the labour data south of the border, which suggest the U.S. recovery is finally underway, that demanded the attention of economists and markets. The U.S. Labor department said Friday morning that 114,000 new jobs were created in September, More importantly, it revised upwards its data for July and August — adding 86,000 jobs to those two months. For the three months, job creation averaged 146,000 and took the unemployment rate to 7.8 per cent, the lowest in four years. The Canadian dollar jumped more than half a cent on the news to 102.62 cents US,
and markets were solidly up in morning trading in both Toronto and New York before backing off later in the day. “I think (the U.S.) is the bigger news today, even for Canada,” said Bank of Montreal deputy chief economist Doug Porter. “This is exactly what the Canadian economy needs right now because the consumer is close to being tapped out, housing doesn’t have any more room to grow, the government sector is cutting back (and) business are understandably cautious. So what we really need now is exports and exports need the U.S. economy to get going.” Some supporters of Republican challenger Mitt Romney suggested a conspiracy inside the Labor Department to save U.S. President Barack Obama was afoot, but CIBC chief economist Avery Shenfeld says if the data was pumped up, something less sinister may be involved. “The ... survey, like Canada’s monthly survey, is notorious for producing fleeting
outliers, albeit not this large,” he said. “Based on grossing up the results of a monthly sample of Americans, and comparing it to the prior month’s sample, the resulting count is not nearly as reliable as the payrolls report,” he said. In another promising signal, the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants’ third-quarter survey found that 46 per cent of senior executives expect the number of employees at their companies to increase in the next year. That’s up slightly from 41 per cent in the second-quarter survey. Finance Minister Jim Flaherty’s office issued a statement that he was “encouraged” by the latest Canadian gains, noting that they bring to 820,000 the number of new jobs added since July 2009, when the economy started to recover from recession. Flaherty said it was the best job creation record in the G7.

Hot weather hard Ottawa misses fiscal target by $1.3B, deficits continue to decline on crops; yields BY THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — Ottawa’s financial position isn’t quite as sound as previously thought, with the government reporting Friday it missed its deficit target for the just completed fiscal year by $1.3 billion. The Finance Department’s final accounting on the 2011-12 year shows the federal deficit will officially be recorded at $26.2 billion, above the $24.9 billion estimate of last March’s budget. But in a statement, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty put a positive spin on the numbers. He noted the government continues to make steady progress from the previous year’s $33.4-billion deficit, and the even higher $55.6-billion shortfall of 2009-10 — an all-time high. “This positive performance is encouraging and reflects Canada’s sound economic and fiscal fundamentals,” he said in a news release. The minister points out that program spending fell 0.6 percentage points as a share of the economy in the year — an indication austerity measures are taking a bite out of expenditures, and that at 33.8 per cent of gross domestic product, the national debt is by far the lowest in the G7. The government will indicate whether it expects to meet this year’s $21.1-billion deficit target in a few weeks with the release of the fall update, but Flaherty cautioned there remain very real risks to the economy. “The global economic environment is still fragile and uncertain, and recent eco-
‘THE GLOBAL ECONOMIC ENVIRONMENT IS STILL FRAGILE AND UNCERTAIN . . . THERE ARE DOWNSIDE RISKS TO THE FISCAL OUTLOOK CONTAINED IN THE ECONOMIC ACTION PLAN 2012.’ — JIM FLAHERTY FINANCE MINISTER
nomic developments suggest that there are downside risks to the fiscal outlook contained in the economic action plan 2012,” he said. The government got some good news Friday, with Statistics Canada reporting 52,000 new jobs were added in September. The fiscal reports for the first four months of the current fiscal year have also been surprisingly strong given the soft conditions and, until last month, weak jobs growth. Ottawa has so far posted a deficit of $3 billion in the first third of the year, well on pace to meet that annual target. Economists say it is not unusual for the government’s final results to differ from the monthly numbers, or even the budget estimates. For the year, the government said revenues increased $8.1 billion, or 3.4 per cent, while program expenses rose only by about $800 million, or 0.3 per cent.

A crop condition report issued on Friday by Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development said lower-than-expected yields may have been the result of hot summer weather. The report, which was prepared by Agriculture Financial Services Corp. with input from Alberta Agriculture and the Alberta Association of Agricultural Fieldmen, said yields have been average to slightly above average, despite high expectations prior to harvest. In Central Alberta, yields have been only five to 10 per cent above the fiveyear average. “It appears that the hot weather of July and August caused significantly more damage than what was originally anticipated, possibly due to crops being shallow-rooted,” said the report, which was written by James Wright, a risk analyst with AFSC. The report indicated that Alberta’s 2012 harvest was nearly complete as of Oct. 2, with 96 per cent of crops in the bin. In the case of Central Alberta the figure was 95 per cent, with harvest virtually complete in the east and middle part of the region, but about 10 per cent remaining to the west. Overall quality was rated as good, with 94 per cent of hard red spring wheat and 99 per cent of durum in the top three grades.

MARKETS CLOSE TORONTO — The Toronto stock market closed lower on Friday as commodities weakened and the shine wore off jobs reports from both the U.S. and Canada. The S&P/TSX composite index dropped 28.69 points to 12,418.99 — up 0.8 per cent from where it closed last Friday. The TSX Venture Exchange was
up 4.13 points at 1,344.98. Stocks lost the momentum that was built up in the morning, particularly on Wall Street, after the U.S. government reported that the country’s unemployment rate fell below eight per cent for the first time since January 2009, while hiring increased to 114,000 jobs in September. The Canadian dollar rose 0.17 of a cent to 102.16 cents
US, adding slightly to a gain of more than seven-tenths of a cent earlier in the day. In Canada, the jobs data was mixed with the unemployment rate rising one-tenth of a point to 7.4 per cent in September even as the economy added 52,100 jobs — five times the number expected. The report was well received by many economists given the

GOLF: Many factors A course typically needs a population base of about 8,000 people to sustain it, said Jurak. That formula would suggest that Sylvan Lake is over-served by local golf courses, but the resort community is an anomaly because of its tourist trade and commuter ties to Red Deer, said Jurak. Proximity to a busy road like Hwy 2 can also provide a golf course with a financial lifeline. It’s helped Lacombe, said Clark, and even River Bend benefits from its highway connections to out-of-town players. “We have a potential golfing market of some 750,000 people within a 90-minute drive of us in either direction,” pointed out Andrew Gilchrist, River Bend’s general manager. When it comes to tapping into the huge reservoir of golfers in Edmonton and Calgary, Wolf Creek stands alone among Central Alberta’s courses. “Eighty per cent of my golf comes from Edmonton or Calgary,” said Vold. “Only 15 per cent comes from the Red Deer region.” Wolf Creek can routinely be found on national golf course rankings, including SCOREGolf magazine’s 2012 listing of the top 100 tracks in Canada — in which it grabbed the number 17 spot. “We hang around the 16 and 22 mark,” said Vold. The publicity attracts some players, he confirmed. That’s good for business, although some visitors are surprised to see a rough, links-style course instead of a sea of manicured grass from tee to green. “We’re a different style golf course, and it’s not everybody’s cup of tea.” firstname.lastname@example.org

million to Mitt Romney’s political action committee, a donation that has set off alarm bells amid the evermurky waters of American campaign law. OdysseyRe is a subsidiary of Toronto-based insurance giant Fairfax Financial Holdings (TSX:FFH). The company, headed by Indian-born CEO Prem Watsa, had total assets of $31.7 billion at the end of 2010, and employs more than 8,000 people worldwide. The U.S. Supreme Court’s controversial Citizens United ruling allows American corporations to make contributions to so-called SuperPACs, while banning foreign-owned companies from doing so. But there remains confusion about whether the 2010 ruling also applies to foreign-owned U.S. subsidiaries.
Fairfax says it doesn’t, and that it’s broken no laws. The decision to donate the money in August to Romney’s Restore Our Future SuperPAC, a company official added Friday, was made by a sub-committee of the company’s board of directors comprised entirely of U.S. citizens. “We had no role; the U.S. company is in fact our largest company, and they had business reasons for doing it, but we played no role at all,” Paul Rivett, Fairfax’s vice-president of operations, said from Toronto. Peter Lovell, counsel general for OdysseyRe, said “neither our parent company nor any other foreign nationals were part of the decision-making process to contribute to the SuperPAC.”
JOBS: Surprise experts
were up so solidly,” he said. Still, the pop in new jobs was unexpected given that most economic indicators of the past few months have presented a picture of a domestic economy struggling to maintain momentum amid a general slowdown around the world, particularly the United States, Europe and China. September’s increase brought the number of jobs created since last September to 175,000. The report was even stronger than August’s 34,000 jobs increase, which were all part-time. Last month, the vast majority of new jobs were full-time and all in the private sector, although roughly two-thirds were in the self-employment category — jobs that economists say are often lowerpaying and less productive. Statistics Canada said most of the new jobs were taken by workers in the core 25-54 age group, and mostly by men in the first notable increase in employment among men since March of last year. “With this increase, the employment level for core-aged men is back to its pre-recession peak of October 2008,” the agency said, although the rate of employment remains slightly below that of four years ago.
The gain in Canada was the third biggest of the year and surprised the experts, which had expected a pickup of just 10,000 jobs. But the gain wasn’t enough to put a dent in the unemployment rate, which edged up one-tenth of a point to 7.4 per cent. That’s because while thousands of Canadians found work in September, even more — 72,600 — joined the labour force. Economist Erin Weir of the Progressive Economics Forum said the jump in Canadians entering the workforce suggests many “are still waiting in the wings” for prospects to improve. Economists also pointed out that the details were not as strong as the headline suggests, including the fact that two-thirds of the new jobs where in the selfemployment category. Scotiabank’s Derek Holt noted that aggregate hours worked actually declined 0.3 per cent despite there being more people working. “It’s hours worked that get people paid so this is a significant dent against the headline. It’s not clear to me how this happened if headline and full-time jobs

signs of weakness that permeate the Canadian economy, but BMO Financial Group chief economist Sherry Cooper warned that the outlook for the country is still clouded. “The Canadian economy might not be as close to full-employment as we think,” she wrote in a note. “With an overvalued currency, tightened credit conditions and the prospect of higher interest rates, the economy could be vulnerable to a further slowdown from the under two per cent pace recorded so far this year.” Despite the mixed day, the Dow managed to reach a milestone: its highest close since December 2007. The Dow Jones industrials moved 34.79 points higher to 13,610.15, an increase of 1.3 per cent from a week earlier.

A warm welcome at Grand Cayman NOT JUST THE CLIMATE, THE PEOPLE ARE FRIENDLY TOO Ah, the fickle hand of Mother Nature. One minute, on her climatic whim, we’re draped across a patio; denim shorted, retro Adidas T-shirted and with Gucci flip flops dangling from tanned pedicured toes. But of course summer, North American style, is ebbing; weather, as you know, changes on a dime. Aye, it’s getting significantly cooler on Canadian shores. As it is in Great Britain. Scribing today’s manifesto, we’re holed up in our COLIN & London pied-aJUSTIN terre, heating cranked to full tilt. Earlier this morning, however, seduced by bright skies and al fresco lattes, we braved a Knightsbridge patio until, chilled to the bone, we fled indoors where a gamine waitress, hair piled high like Amy Winehouse and eyes painted Dusty Springfield style, seemed incredulous we’d even attempted an outdoor act. “That’ll be the Scottish gene,” we chirped in unison, “with some Canadian tolerance slung in for good measure. Aye, we’ve become thoroughly accustomed to colder climes.” If you prefer dreaming of warmer climes, you’ll enjoy today’s glossy maison, a modern vision upon which we stumbled while vacationing on Grand Cayman earlier this year. Keen, since then, to showcase the house, we decided to wait until Canadian mercury dipped before throwing open its doors. And now we’re ready; slip on your bikini, pour yourself a rum cocktail and prepare for a spot of international property porn! The moment we arrive, Cheryl and Don Seymour usher us into their living room, an atmospheric space with dark wood cabinetry and almond painted walls. Chattering about their home’s fiveyear build, Caymanian Don, founder of DMS Offshore Investment Services, and Cheryl — who hails from Union Bay on Vancouver Island — enthuse about Cayman’s social undercurrent. “Our home,” explains Don, “is perfect for large gatherings. “We love entertaining and adore the

Which reminds me; if you only do one thing water-related when here, make sure you swim with the stingrays? It’s an experience you’ll never forget. As it happens, we take Don’s advice (shortly after our shoot) and the trip is indeed mind blowing. The rays — some of which have a five-foot wing span — are sufficiently accustomed to being fed by guides that they flock harmlessly around swimmers without fear. We, on the other hand, are mildly disquieted as the deep sea denizens curl their massive fins around our torsos. But hey; it’s all good fun. Still in the dining room, we gaze at the massive chandelier that floats above the table. Specified by Floridian Susan Knight, the visionary charged with pulling the interior together (after Chalmers Gibbs Architects completed the structure), its inclusion received no resistance from the couple:
“I love big statements,” smiles Cheryl, “and anything even a little unusual excites me.” From the dining room, a large portal yields to a dark timber kitchen, a professional chef-worthy zone in which the couple spend much of their time. Both Don and Cheryl are utterly stove savvy and each takes their turn; one day it’ll be a Caribbean specialty like lobster and the next a classic Canadian staple like sticky pork ribs. “We’ve become real foodies,” enthuses Cheryl, “not least because of the annual Cayman Cookout, an event we attend every year.” Based at The Ritz-Carlton, the gathering, it transpires, sees prodigious chef Eric Ripert and a roster of his internationally lauded peers presiding over tastings, demonstrations, tours and dinners, all of which celebrate the barefoot elegance that Cayman so effortlessly delivers.

indoor/outdoor layout.” Pouring ice-cold water from a large crystal vessel, Cheryl picks up; “That’s just one of the things we enjoy about Cayman; folk are so friendly. I’ve been welcomed as if I was born here.” Smiling broadly and stretching her arm around her husband’s waist she continues. “When guests visit, be they Canadian or American, one of the first things they notice is the local spirit. It makes us fiercely proud.” Similarly proud of their gorgeous abode, our new friends gesture toward the dining area and, as talk of island life continues, so, too, does the home tour. “We’ve several guest rooms and they’re seldom empty, particularly with Canadian family who are always amazed at how easy it is to get here. From Toronto, as you know, it is only three and a half hours and from Vancouver just six.” Picking up his wife’s enthusiastic account, Don adds; “The weather’s a

The dark timber kitchen, a professional chef-worthy zone, includes hand-built cabinetry by Friedemann Weinhardt of Design First Interiors in Ottawa. Below, the pool area.
Enthusing further about the quality of the kitchen cabinetry, we discover that it was hand-built by Friedemann Weinhardt of Design First Interiors in Ottawa. “Just because I’m far away,” laughs Cheryl, “doesn’t mean I can’t buy Canadian! DFI came on strong recommendation and their work is all about a return to a bygone era.” Pulling open a door to admire dovetailed mitres and a veritable geometric plan of exacting carpentry, we discover perfect order. Everything is neatly “merchandised” with jar after jar of epicurean comestibles suggesting a healthy focus. “We’re both interested in wellbeing and the fact we can walk or cycle everywhere makes that so much easier,” Cheryl explains. “And of course we love to swim.” Ah yes, swimming; who wouldn’t enjoy a dip in the Seymour’s pool? Tiled inky black, it lends a stark, dramatic note to their lushly planted garden. Fashionistas take note, when it comes to swimming pools, blue is so last year. To the side of the pool is a natural waterway and it’s here the family boat is berthed; a super sleek yellow bullet in which James Bond, we’re certain, would be proud to travel. (Note to selves: work even harder in 2013; we could get very used to this level of luxury.) Heading back indoors, we glide across a sea of creamy marble until we reach the second level where six bedrooms, all of which have ensuites, are located. Master bathrooms are dressed on a his and hers basis; Cheryl’s is neutral and muted and attired in soft creamy travertine. Don’s, however, is the very essence of masculinity; charcoal-toned slate attests that this is where Mr. S prepares for the day ahead. Downstairs again, and settled on manicured upholstery, our hosts indulge us by popping the cork on a bottle of chilled rosé. As our taste buds jump to attention, the front door opens and the family nanny arrives, two beautiful wee girls holding her hands. Stella is three and a half and Ava just 16 months but with equal gusto they break free of their affable nanny and fly to the welcoming arms of their parents. “The girls love it here,” explains their doting dad, “and if they’re happy we’re happy.” As the precious pair chuckle, mom adds; “It’s great for them growing up here in such a diverse mix of cultures, but because we get back to B.C. for three months each summer, they enjoy the best of both worlds.” But anyway, Cayman observations aside, where were we? Oh yes; cranking up our heating. And it’s only going to get worse when we arrive in Canada. We oft report a dream “to live where the weather suits our clothes,” but, courtesy of our schedule, we might well go bonkers before that plan materializes. If, come December, you see us leaping about Yonge St. in shorts and flip flops, then you’ll know we’ve finally tipped over the climatic — and somewhat crazy — edge. More from us next week!

Use sheet metal to weatherproof under a deck

Question: How can I keep rain from dripping through a second-floor deck? I want to use the area underneath the deck for weatherproof storage. Answer: Sheet metal roofing fastened to the underside of deck joists makes a great, weatherproof ceiling for applications like yours. You can order it in whatever lengths you need to extend from the house wall out to a few inches beyond the edge of the deck. Fasten the metal with special roofing screws that have neoprene washers underneath the heads, with the factorypainted surface of the roofing facing down. For best results you’ll need to installed this metal on tapered strips of wood that ensure a consistent slope away from the house for good drainage. You can direct the water to run towards the front or sides of the deck, whichever is more convenient. Either way, overlap the seams one notch further than you would if the metal were installed in the usual way, just to make sure there are no leaks. You might also consider installing eavestrough around the perimeter, to stop water from splashing onto things stored below. You should also consider blocking the area around the perimeter of the deck ceiling to keep out nesting birds and other animals.
Hot-dipped galvanized hardware is the minimum required for use on the latest generation of pressuretreated wood. It’s dull grey colour (left) is the best way to distinguish it from corrosion-prone electro-plated hardware (right).
or email at email@example.com
Extending fence height Question: How can I extend the height of a wooden fence from five feet to seven feet tall without putting in new posts? I want to install a wooden lattice above the five-foot mark. Answer: If this were my fence I’d bolt some three-foot long extensions on the sides of the existing posts at the top. Overlap the new wood twelve to sixteen inches over the old posts and use two ½ ”-diameter hotdipped galvanized carriage bolts per joint. If you install lattice on both sides of this extension it will hide the joint quite nicely. Today’s pressuretreated lumber is more corrosive than the stuff sold previously, so it’s essential you stay away from electro-plated nails, screws, bolts and hardware. Even contractors don’t always understand the importance of choosing outdoor fasteners well, so you need to be your own watchdog. Insist on hot dipped galvanized bolts. They’re a duller grey than the shinier, less costly and more widely available electro-plated alternative.

Basement weeping tile Question: Will it do any good to put drainage tiles under the patio slabs around the perimeter of our leaky basement? The slabs measure 18” x 18” and begin right next to the wall. Water is leaking into the basement where the wall meets the basement floor, about eight feet down. Answer: Curing a leaky basement is always tricky because there are so many variables. Weeping tiles installed just under the patio slabs might work, but maybe not. It all depends where the water is coming from. The typical approach is to have weeping tile installed just below the bottom of the basement wall, but that’s a huge amount of messy and expensive work.

Making some mural madness PICK THE PLACE AND THE SUBJECT, THEN FIND THE RESOURCE THAT SUITS YOUR STYLE

HOUSE TO HOME lection of designs available for kids, but also stunning adult motifs — Mega Fashionistas, Ferns, Bamboo, Zebra stripes, and a few funky pics, one called Unzipped. www.elephantsonthewall.com. For my TV series The Painted House I used another method called Projection Stenciling. Artist Linda Buckingham has produced two books on the subject. The books show the endless possibilities for creating murals using a projector to project your choice of images onto a surface. You can get the size and position you want by moving the projector and adjusting the setting. Freezer paper can be used to trace the projected design. Cut out the stencil with an Xacto knife. The stenciled images are then filled in with paint. If you are interested in injecting the rich and timeless appeal of architectural details, check out the collection of large format architectural stencils through The Stencil Library, and other excellent sources found on the internet. Various columns with finely detailed architraves, capitals and bases, pillars and arches, balustrades, pedestals, railings. finials, borders and panels are generally available in three sizes. To replicate the effect of three dimensional decorative details, two or three stencil overlays per image are required, and can be costly. This type of focal wall suits a grand entrance hall or dining room where a dramatic visual effect is desired. An altogether different approach to wall murals is the wallpaper mural. Imagine one wall in a bedroom or den that
is covered with your favourite serenity scene, it could be a view of a woodland, or a sandy beach at sunset. Find a photo of the scene you want blown up and take it to a printer who can reproduce the image onto adhesivebacked wallpaper measured to fit your space. Vinyl-coated wallcoverings are durable, good for high traffic areas.

The concept of a focal wall is not new. We have painted scenes, motifs, diagrams and personal images on interior surfaces for thousands of years. Employing these decorative features was once the purview of artists who had the talent to paint and draw and add dimension to images so that they appear lifelike. Today the keen do-ityourselfer has the means to replicate any theme in large format on walls, ceilings and floors with only a modicum of artistic ability. Here are options for creating a mural that will enhance any room and lifestyle. You pick the place and the subject, then find the resource that suits your style. Paint-by-number wall murals are an affordable way to add imagination, colour and fun, or a touch of elegance to any room. Devised by Patti Newton who worked as a designer for Walt Disney Imagineering, her company Elephants on the Wall offers all you need to produce a mural such as the girl on a swing shown here. The kit includes the pattern and transfer paper and instructions. Patterns can be repeated, reversed and reused. The pattern is traced onto the wall using the transfer paper. A number coded diagram indicates where the colours go, and you fill in the transferred picture freehand with paint. On this nursery wall the tree without the swing was repeated on either side of the main picture to add dimension. The background wall is pale pink, the side trees are painted a slightly darker pink, and the tree and swing are chocolate brown. There is a large se-

STORY FROM PAGE D3
TILE: Some fixes If I were you, I’d try installing the tile in a bed of crush stone just under the patio slabs. If it doesn’t work, you’ve wasted a relatively small amount of time, money and hassle compared to the alternative. While you’re at it, install a continuous heavy rubber membrane under the slabs when you put them back. Also, be sure to orient the slope of the surrounding soil, the membrane and the patio slabs outwards, so water sheds away from your house. And don’t forget the need to have eavestrough in good working order, directing roof water at least 10 feet away from the building. Since this is the easiest possible fix of all, might as well try it before anything else.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Provoking will not turn out to be the appropriate solution to breaking your boredom. Watch what you say and control your temper as power struggles are possible today.

Maintain your cool side and control your impulses. Do not believe that everyone is against you. You have much more to gain in the end as opportunity for advancement might come from resourceful connections. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Particular skills and networks that you’d like to see develop further seem to not expand themselves as you had hoped. They prove to be quite challenging. Luckily, your drive force and stamina will contribute to moving forward any hopes or dreams you held until now. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your dreams have a promising feel to it and they prove to foster constructive efforts. You maintain a good harmony between your idealistic and realistic plans.

Found money is always a delightful discovery. Dear Annie: This is in response to “Young Empty Nester,” who said she phones former mom friends for lunch or conversation, but no one returns her calls. She might need to examine her own personality traits. I had three friends whom I rarely called back. One has mastered the art of eating, breathing and talking simultaneously. One cried and talked about her latest illness. And the other dominated every minute of every conversation lamenting her three-year-old divorce.
