PROVIDING MOMENTUM BY CAMERON KENNEDY ADVOCATE STAFF Hundreds of Kenyan students burst into peals of laughter as they watch classmates and teachers learn to cycle at Kiprengwe Primary School. Some of the riders — less than a dozen in all — take to the small, black Afrikid bicycles during the now-not-so-secret cycling lesson like ducks to water. Others lurch and swerve, wobble and wipe out as they try to navigate the lumpy hilltop field. Amidst the barely controlled chaos, Kelly MacVicar and Melissa Farahat are doing all they can to prop up one female student, dressed in one of the school’s ubiquitous forest green sweaters and peacock blue dresses. She spends more time riding the coaster brake than pedalling forward during the lesson, much to the Canadian women’s chagrin. The cycling lesson was a highlight of a recent mission to Kenya for MacVicar and Farahat, who donated 205 Afrikid and AfricaBike bicycles to Kiprengwe Primary and Chepseon Secondary schools on May 11. The women raised more than $50,000 to buy the bikes, which were delivered to Kenya with the help of a Lacombe-based international development agency, A Better World. “We’ve had some challenges, but today definitely made it all come together and worthwhile,” said MacVicar, relaxing back at the hotel after meeting with school officials to finalize the bike distribution plan. “It was a little overwhelming to actually see them ride the bikes,” added Farahat, a touch sunburned but still exhuberant. “It felt really good.” The mission by MacVicar and Farahat to Kiprengwe was actually their second visit to the small, rural community, located about three hours northwest of Kenya’s capital, Nairobi. MacVicar, a 27-year-old human resources officer who grew up in Sylvan Lake, and Farahat, a 28-year-old legal assistant from Airdrie, met on A Better World mission to Kenya in 2009. MacVicar’s mother, a high school teacher at H.J. Cody High School in Sylvan Lake, had helped raise money to build classrooms at Kiprengwe Primary. MacVicar tagged along to attend the grand opening ceremony. Farahat was looking for adventure when she signed up. She had heard about A Better World through a friend and contacted the organization to see if there was a trip available. While visiting Kiprengwe in 2009, MacVicar and Farahat noted just how far some of the students had to walk to attend school, and the effect all that walking had to have on their studies.

Baby beavers born at Ellis Bird Farm Care Clinic

comes to Red Deer because of need

BY LANA MICHELIN ADVOCATE STAFF Well, it’s finally happened. After two years of only managing a few nuzzles and some mutual grooming, the Ellis Bird Farm beavers have at last produced a litter of four kits. The births of the tiny beavers came as a complete surprise to the bird farm’s biologist and manager Myrna Pearman. Given that the two adults (christened June and Ward) had been without issue since arriving at the bird farm in the fall of 2010, “I just thought they would remain “a kit-less couple,” said Pearman. But their new arrivals were first noticed on June 2 when mewing was heard on the webcam that had previously been installed to monitor beaver activity inside the lodge. “It’s so exciting and so cute,” said Pearman, who had witnessed June and Ward exhibiting “what looks like affection,” by grooming each other and nuzzling. Now their four furry kits spend most of their time either mewing or nursing. When Ward comes home after a long day of swimming and chewing “they make these greeting sounds,” said Pearman. “They groom each other and give immediate attention to each other.” The two parents and four kits have also been sleeping all snuggled together — which is another surprise for Pearman. She expected that June would have pushed Ward out of the lodge when the kits were born, but that hasn’t happened. Presumably the two beavers have not read the same literature that Pearman had perused, written by experts on beaver behaviour. The beaver is Canada’s national symbol and the source of our historic economy. But not much is really known about how the large rodents interact with each other, Pearman said — which is why the web camera at the bird farm has been such a fantastic innovation.

A litter of four young beavers surprised Ellis Bird Farm manager Myrna Pearman on June 2. After two years together June and Ward gave birth to the kits. She doesn’t know of another such webcam that’s been positioned inside a beaver lodge anywhere else in North America. In fact, rare local video footage assembled by volunteer “beaver feeder” Rick Zemanek (a retired Advocate editor) and local videographer Phil French was already used in the Nature of Things documentary, The Beaver Whisperers. Pearman predicts more exciting video footage will be caught in future, now that the pair have a family. When Ward and June first moved onto a creek on the premises, concerns about the possible destruction of trees left Ellis Bird Farm staff wondering if they should be removed. But one of the farm’s gardeners urged waiting to see if a problem arises before taking action. And Pearman believes three things have since happened to make the beaver settlement possible: Staff control the level of water held by the beaver dam, so there’s no flooding; important trees were wired against beaver damage; and staff “feed” the beavers, by regularly providing them with chopped aspen branches. This minimizes other destruction to

vegetation — although one spruce tree was recently felled by the beavers. Pearman believes spruce branches were used to prepare a bed for the arrival of the kits. “Cutting down a spruce tree is unusual. But it looks as if she’s hauled the branches into the lodge and used the boughs to make a bed for nursing.” So far, the presence of Ward and June has made a positive impact on the area’s biodiversity and wetland ecosystem. Pearman has noticed the mud and twigs used to make the beaver dam and lodge create a lot of micro-environments for other species to flourish. As a result, new bird species have been noticed in the area, including belted kingfisher and northern water thrush. By watching June, Ward and their new family at work and play, she hopes more people will develop an appreciation of the role beavers play in the environment. “I recognize they can cause some short-term damage, but over all, they are a very important part of the ecosystem.” Anyone interested can watch the beaver webcam by visiting

Red Deer was selected for a family care clinic based on the need for improved access to primary care on Tuesday. Alberta Health and Wellness spokesperson Bart Johnson said it was Alberta Health Services that recognized there was a need. This is different than the situation in Sylvan Lake where the Sylvan Lake Urgent Care Committee has been lobbying for urgent care for years. Sylvan Lake and Three Hills were the other two Central Alberta communities on the list of 24 communities selected for family care clinics. The province has budgeted $50 million for the clinics. Johnson said the communities were selected based on the greatest need, capacity for the facility and readiness to proceed with a clinic. He said the goal is to expand and improve access to primary health care particularly in those communities that weren’t well served. He said Red Deer was identified as having some needs. Johnson said the next step is to work with community and interested organizations to determine which resources are available and are needed. No timelines have been set in stone but Johnson said some clinics could be up and running by the end of the year. Family care clinics use a teambased approach and provide nonemergency care including diagnosis, screening, health promotion, chronic disease management and flu shots.

Electric car owners looking to recharge power up at Peavey Mart Peavey Mart wants to charge you — without charging you. The Red Deer-based retailer showed off its new electric car charging station at 2410 50th Ave. on Friday, one of four recently installed at its stores across Western Canada. MainStreet Hardware in Blackfalds, also owned by Peavey Industries Ltd., now boasts a charger too. Now, electric car drivers can stop at the Red Deer or Blackfalds store and charge up their vehicles for free. While in the month since installation there have only been about a half dozen charges at the Red Deer store, Peavey Industries Ltd. president Doug Anderson said the company has received thank you cards in the mail and lots of positive feedback. Right now, electric cars and the associated charging stations tend to primarily be in big cities, but he believes they can proliferate in more remote locations in the Prairies. “Once there’s an infrastructure in place to really help some of those vehicle owners, I think you’re going to see it become commonplace in all regions, not just the big cities,” said Anderson. The goal is to have charging stations installed at all Peavey Mart locations from Dawson Creek, B.C., to Swan River, Man. by the end of the year. While installation costs can run the company


a few thousand dollars and the chargers a couple more, Anderson said there is no need to charge for the service. “It’s not very expensive to charge a vehicle, and we have a captive customer. The hope is they’re going to come into the store, spend some time, and do some shopping. It is sustainable — absolutely,” he said. It is a strategy that made a customer out of Jason Auch and Capri Rasmussen, a Calgary couple that stopped at the location a few weeks ago to top up their charge on the way to Edmonton, popping into the store for some purchases while they waiting. The couple bought their sleek Tesla Roadster Sport in 2010 when there were no charging stations in the province nor even an ‘electric car’ classification for auto insurance in Alberta. Now, Rasmussen says they will “always” stop in Red Deer on Hwy 2 trips for the charge. Edmonton’s Peter Woytiuk bought his own Tesla Model S electric car in March after being on a waiting list for two years, and since then he has noticed the number of charging stations in the province double; there are approximately 30 now. He said he is looking forward to seeing charging stations across the province. “Putting them in places like Peavey Mart is great because you’re not stuck to Hwy 2. You can go off the main transportation corridor and get around,” said Woytiuk.

BIKES: ‘We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into’

Photo by CAMERON KENNEDY/Advocate staff

Don Yeun, an investment advisor from Calgary, unloads Afrikid bicycles from a truck at Chepseon Secondary School before the official delivery ceremony. deliver bicycles to Kenya was not without its skeptics. One of those was Eric Rajah. Cofounder of A Better World, Rajah admitted he was very apprehensive about the project when the women first approached him about getting involved. He questioned whether giving bikes to Kiprengwe students was even one of the community’s priorities. His other concerns included whether the bikes would be stolen, sold to feed a hungry family or promote bullying at the school. As the project gathered momentum, Rajah wondered whether the bikes would make it to Kenya at all, how they would be secured until MacVicar and Farahat’s team arrived, where the bikes would be assembled, and how they would be distributed. “I know we cannot even run a medical clinic without people pushing and shoving,” said Rajah before of the trip, fearing a similar outcome at Kiprengwe. MacVicar and Farahat were determined to avoid an ugly scene on delivery day. At Rajah’s urging, they met with principals of Kiprengwe Primary and Chepseon Secondary schools to hammer out a distribution plan ahead of time. All the parties involved agreed the bikes would be owned by the schools, which would give them to Grade 7, 8 and 9 students and teachers who had to walk at least five km to school. Each school also received a few bikes for their phys ed programs. The women also sought assurances from the principals that the bike project would continue to operate in the years to come. MacVicar said she left the meeting feeling reassured that their dream was actually going to make a difference in the lives of Kiprengwe students. So did Rajah. He said MacVicar, Farahat and their team worked extremely hard and cleared a lot of speed bumps along the way. Improving access to education appeared to be one of the community’s priorities after all, but only time would tell how they navigated around those obstacles. “I’ll do a follow up in July and see how many bikes are actually in place and working,” said Rajah. “That will be the ultimate test.” School officials, who received only two days notice before the bikes arrived, were surprised but thrilled to receive the bicycles. David Kikwai, principal of Kiprengwe Primary, called the bicycles a very thoughtful gift. Many Kiprengwe students had to travel a long way to reach the school, he said, and the bicycles should help them to continue to improve their performance on tests. Kikwai said he believed the bike program would be sustainable because students, teachers, parents and the community had a stake in its success. Parents would be responsible for keeping the bicycles in good repair. If a bike was stolen, the parents would be responsible for replacing it, he said. Abraham Rutto, the district education officer, said the bicycle project was

one of a kind. Transporting children to school was a challenge faced by many communities in the region, since most families could not afford to buy motorbikes. The bicycles would help Kiprengwe students save time and energy, which they could spend on doing their assignments, he said. Rutto added his only worry was that the project would only benefit two schools when there were so many facing similar challenges. He said he hoped parents in neighbouring communities would emulate the project at their schools. MacVicar wouldn’t rule out doing another project down the road. “At the end of the day, we are both very committed to supporting A Better World in one way or another, whether it be another bike project or something else,” she said. Dozens of Kenyan students burst into song as four large trucks tightly packed with bicycles arrive at Chepseon Secondary School for the official delivery ceremony. Storm clouds roll menacingly overhead as the bicycles are unloaded, creating a black carpet of handle bars, seats and tires along the school’s

fenceline. The appreciative speeches end with a clap of thunder and a trickle of lucky rain that quickly becomes a torrent, forcing the volunteers to take cover under the school’s narrow eaves as they distribute the bikes. Some of the students immediately push their bikes to the top of the school’s hill and ride them down, splashing through the pools of water forming in the field below. Like ducks to water.

“It’s pretty striking to think the students are going to school from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., and then they are walking five, 10, 15 km a day to and from school,” said MacVicar. “And having to walk home at lunch,” added Farahat. MacVicar and Farahat stayed in touch after the trip and tried to figure out how they could help. About a year later, Farahat brought an advertisement for Kona’s Basic Needs program to MacVicar’s attention over coffee. The goal of the bicycle manufacturer’s progam is to donate Kona AfricaBikes to organizations and individuals who can benefit from a bicycle. For ever two bikes purchased from Kona, the company donates a third. The idea to give bicycles to Kiprengwe’s students was born. “We thought, ‘That’s perfect. That’s how we can give back to the community,’ ” said Farahat. The women emailed Kona and the company climbed on board the project immediately. Farahat said the original goal was to give Kona’s AfricaBikes to every student at Kiprengwe, all 530 of them. But Kona suggested Kiprengwe’s students would be too small to ride its adult bike. It offered to design a smaller version of its AfricaBike that would be suitable for rough, hilly terrain around the school. Eight months later, Kona unveiled the Afrikid bike, a mix between one of its AfricaBikes and a children’s mountain bikes. The Afrikid bike has rugged tires and three gears to tackle Kiprengwe’s hills, and it comes with a childfriendly basket and book holder. “They are durable and low maintenance, that’s the idea of the Afrikid bike,” said MacVicar. Designing a mountain bike specifically for Kiprengwe’s terrain was the first of many obstacles that MacVicar and Farahat navigated during the twoand-a-half year project. Neither was an avid cyclist, nor did they know much about fundraising, event marketing, volunteer leadership or import/export regulations. Simply shipping the bikes to Kenya from Kona’s manufacturer in Cambodia took about a year to pull off, and it cost a lot more than expected. “For the past two and a half years, it has been a total roller-coaster. We wanted to give up a lot of times,” said Farahat, who estimated she sent about 2,000 emails about the shipping arrangements alone. “We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into until it was too late to back out.” But the women persevered — with “a tonne of support from friends and family.” Their first fundraiser, a mountain bike race at the Canmore Nordic Centre in September 2011, drew about 40 racers and raised about $10,000. Donations continued to slowly roll in over the next year or so. A silent auction and live music night in early 2013 finally put them over the top. Don Yeun, an investment advisor from Calgary, collected enough sponsors to buy six bikes at that first fundraiser in Canmore. Earlier this year, he received an email from MacVicar and Farahat, who were looking for volunteers to assemble bikes in Kenya. It was a little short notice, but Yeun said he and his wife, Heather, thought that it sounded like a great way to go to Africa. The Yeuns were among eight Canadian volunteers, mostly friends or friends of friends, who travelled to the East African country with the women to help assemble the bikes, which took about two and a half days to complete. Yeun said there were a few minor problems with the bikes, but for the most part they looked pretty rugged and the assembly process went smoothly. “We actually had a couple of (local) bike mechanics that came and helped out,” he said. “Without them I think we would not have got it done Friday night.” Yeun said the biggest challenge facing the project down the road was normal wear and tear. Based on his experience riding mountain bikes over similar terrain, the Afrikid bicycle tires should last 3,000 to 5,000 km. If the students rode their bicycles 15 to 20 km daily, the tires would last only two or three years, said Yeun. That means there would be a whole slew of tires that would need to be replaced at once. The front brake pads would also wear out sooner than later. “I’m not saying that A Better World has to buy all this stuff, like new pads or tires, but somewhere, someone has to be budgeting for it,” said Yeun, who planned to raise his concerns with MacVicar and Farahat.

Former PM Clark honorary witness at residential schools hearing


Armed couple sought by police

BY SUSAN ZIELINSKI ADVOCATE STAFF The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada hearing in Red Deer on Friday looked to how more Canadians must understand what happened at residential schools and recognize the need for reconciliation in order for it to become a reality. “The first emphasis on this commission has been on the truth. And it has been a jarring truth. Anyone of us who has seen this issue from afar and is suddenly confronting it directly realizes just how important and how deeply troubling the truth is. Telling the truth is only the first step,” said former prime minister Joe Clark, an honorary witness for the commission who participated in a reconciliation forum at the hearing at Red Deer College. “We are dealing however with two factors that are very difficult. One is that this story is not known beyond the ranks of those who know it. And the ranks who don’t know it are much larger,” he said as one of about 35 people who sat in a reconciliation talking circle. Concrete steps must be taken to reach more Canadians to transform attitudes and policy, he said. Finding common ground is the challenge, said Clark who was one of four conciliation forum leaders who started discussion in the circle. Former United Church Moderator Bill Phipps, of Calgary, said he has a standard answer for Canadians who rationalize that they had nothing to do with residential schools and therefore not their problem. “I have enormous privilege not only as a white male, but as a member of the colonizers, from my ancestors. If I can accept those privileges, I also have to accept the burdens of what they did wrong. To me it’s as simple as that,” said Phipps, conciliation leader. Residential school survivor and conciliation leader Terry Lusty, of Edmonton, said he was always told that he’d never amount to anything. “It took me until I was 46 before I knew what I was all about, before I had emotion. I locked up so much inside of me. I never had a way to

I used to be the boy that couldn’t laugh. The boy that couldn’t cry,” said Lusty, his voice shaking as he recalled his torment. He spent eight years in a residential school in Winnipeg. “I was a rock,” he said hitting his chest with his fist. “I could not be broken.” There are so many aboriginals,

Métis and Inuit who are still numb, hanging on to bitterness and anger, he said. As part reconciliation, young people need to know why their relatives are the way they are and more must be done to educate them, said Lusty, a former teacher.

A vehicle check at the Sports Hall of Fame on Hwy 2 by police led to the seizure of illegal drugs and the arrest of a Sylvan Lake man on Thursday. At approximately 2:10 p.m. that day an Innisfail Integrated Traffic Unit member checked on a vehicle parked on the side of the road across from the Sports Hall near Red Deer. The driver was asleep behind the wheel, with suspected drugs in plain view. The subsequent investigation resulted in the seizure of approximately 27 grams of suspected methamphetamine and approximately 41 grams of suspected “crack” cocaine, with a combined estimated street value of $8,200. A 31-year-old man now faces two charges of possessing a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, one charge of failing to comply with a recognizance and one charge of driving while unauthorized under the Traffic Safety Act. He was released to appear in Red Deer provincial court in mid July. Police have not identified the man.

Wild Rose School division to slash 23 teaching positions DIVISION RECEIVES $3 MILLION LESS IN PROVINCIAL GRANTS THAN ANTICIPATED

Wild Rose School Division was forced to cut 23 full-time equivalent teaching positions from its schools for the 2013-2014 school year. The board of trustees adopted its $63-million budget on May 21 with about $3 million less than anticipated in provincial grants. Supt. Brian Celli said the division had been bracing for reduced staffing over three years but the reduction in provincial funding sped up the process by two years. The division has 17 schools in communities including Rocky Mountain House, Leslieville and Condor. The division received $720,000 in mitigation funding to ensure no school board was impacted by more than 2.5 per cent. This lessened the blow somewhat to $2.2 million. Like most school divisions in the province, Wild Rose had been following the province’s directive to use reserves to maintain class sizes. But Celli said the well would run dry so the board put a three-year staff reduction plan in place based on predictable funding. Celli said the plan would have been to manage the cuts through options like attrition. “It turned into something quite different,” said Celli. “But we knew ‘Where eventually we would

The division also cut 3.5 positions in the maintenance department. Celli said he is hopeful the 2014-2015 budget will be better but will already be in a less than ideal situation with $500,000 in classroom reserve funding expired and no mitigation funding. “Potentially we are staring down

the barrel of a $1.2 million deficit before we even get started next year,” said Celli. “That’s why we have to keep some reserves around. I hope it’s different next year. I hear things are looking up but if it doesn’t, we’ll be looking at further challenges next year.”

have to reduce the positions but we just thought it would look different.” The 2013-2014 school year, with an estimated 5,100 students, will have with 274 full-time equivalent teachers compared to 297 this school year. Celli said class sizes in all schools will no doubt be larger but he could not pinpoint a number. “We aim to have less than 30,” said Celli. “We will certainly have high school classes in particular that will have over 30. We may have a class or two in the middle school years.” He said they will make every attempt to maintain the recommended sizes for grade levels. In particular, they aim to have less than 20 in the kindergarten to Grade 3 grades. Celli said it was a tough decision but at the end of the day they simply do not have the cash flow. “We still maintained a little of the reserve funding ($2 million) because we need to have something on hand to deal with any emergent situations that would arrive,” said Celli. “So we got that.”

Riding association cuts ties with Rathgeber

Canadian Soccer Association steps in on Quebec turban ban BY THE CANADIAN PRESS MONTREAL — The Canadian Soccer Association is working to overturn a ban on turbans in Quebec and says provincial representatives there had no right to impose such a rule. The organization has waded more forcefully into the controversy over the Quebec Soccer Federation’s decision to restrict turban-wearing children from the pitch. The Ottawa-based association said Friday it is discussing the matter with the provincial body, that it considers the issue a top priority, and that it expects a change in position. The CSA reports directly to the FIFA world body and is responsible for granting or revoking the membership of provincial federations. Its bylaws stipulate that it sets the rules in this country and has the power to suspend, or expel, a provincial association. The association will not discuss whether it has arrived at the threat-issuing stage. However, it confirms it has reopened discussions with Quebec in the hope of forcing it to drop a position that has generated attention from international media. “(This) is the governing body for the sport in the country,” said a Canadian association official, requesting anonymity. “The Quebec Soccer Federation falls under our supervision. So they would apply the regulations the way we mandate them to.” The Canadian association has instructed all pro-

vincial bodies to allow players with turbans. Quebec’s is the only to have refused. Quebec’s federation explained this week it was concerned about safety and pointed out that the rules of the world governing body, FIFA, don’t specifically allow turbans. Critics of the Quebec decision point out that FIFA’s rules don’t ban them, either. A spokesman for the provincial organization said Friday there would be no comment and added that nobody in the administration was available to discuss the matter. The voice mail of director-general Brigitte Frot, who made controversial comments earlier this week, said she was outside the office and would return Monday. Frot was asked during a teleconference what she would tell a five-year-old boy in a turban who showed up to register to play soccer with his friends. She replied: “They can play in their backyard.” The Quebec decision applies to between 100 and 200 people, according to estimates from the local Sikh community. The move has drawn coverage from some major foreign media, including the BBC, and earned condemnation from many federal politicians, especially within the Conservative government and the Opposition Liberals. But within Quebec, aside from the occasional critical newspaper column, there has been little sign of a public backlash. The Quebec soccer body’s sponsors, for instance, have resisted pressure to get involved.


Alberta man fined for removing ancient fossils from national park

OTTAWA — The Conservative party called Friday for the retraction of a report saying the Prime Minister’s Office runs a secret partisan fund. The party called the report false and says it pays for all of the prime minister’s political expenses — and not out of a hidden bank account. “All Conservative party expenses are paid by one account, controlled by the Conservative party,” the party said in a statement. “All funds are properly reported to Elections Canada and audited annually.” The CBC alleged Thursday that a fund controlled by the prime minister’s chief of staff and operating without oversight from Elections Canada was being run by Stephen Harper’s office for partisan purposes. The network also noted that Nigel Wright, Harper’s ex-chief of staff, was running the fund at the same time he wrote a $90,172 cheque to Sen. Mike Duffy to cover repayment of wrongful expense claims. The Conservatives insisted no party or taxpayer funds went to Duffy nor was Wright reimbursed. Canadians were misled by the story, the party said. “They should retract this piece of shoddy journalism.” The CBC said the story holds up.

CALGARY — An Alberta man has been fined $7,000 for trying to illegally export ancient fossils, minerals and gemstones to Japan. Police say Terry Ciotka of Pangea Fossils pleaded guilty in Calgary court to not having proper export permits and lying about the value of the goods. Court heard officers from the Canadian Border Service Agency became suspicious in August 2011 when Ciotka tried to take fossils, ammonites and ammolites across the border. The fossils came from the Burgess Shale formation in Yoho National Park near Field, B.C., which is believed to be around 500 million years old.

Engineer denies warning buyer mall roof risked collapse without fix

OTTAWA — Canada’s economy pumped out a stunning 95,000 in May — one of the biggest monthly gains in history — as employers resumed hiring again after a four-month winter hibernation. Historically, it was the second-biggest job creation month in 35 years — just 100 lower than August 2002. The number was so shocking that economists, and even Prime Minister Stephen Harper, cautioned that the Statistics Canada monthly reports are subject to wide margins of error. “We don’t obviously want to pay too much attention to what happens month to month, because we know this is very volatile, but the Canadian economy is now up to about a million net new jobs created since the recession,” he said at a photo event in Ottawa. “We obviously know that’s one of the best records in the developed world.” Taken as reported, the massive gain was the first major improvement of 2013 and many times greater than economists had expected, dropping the unemployment rate one-tenth of a point to 7.1 per cent. There was also little to quibble about in the underlying details of the Statistics Canada report. All the new jobs came in the private sector and in the employee class — rather than the less desirable self-employment category — and 76,700 of them were full-time. Even young people had an easier time finding employment in May, with about 54,000 of the new workers in the 15 to 24 age group joining the labour force.

If passed, the bill would have raised the transparency bar for salary disclosure to $188,000. The committee reviewing the legislation instead decided to raise the threshold to more than $400,000. Rathgeber said Conservative members on the committee were ordered by PMO staff to raise the threshold, even though not one witness to the committee recommended it. He also said the executive arm of government, through the unelected employees in Harper’s office, is increasingly dictating the legislative agenda to MPs in a way that leaves no room for dissent in public or behind closed doors. Rathgeber was first elected to the Commons in 2008 and was re-elected in 2011. Bieganek said he had yet to speak to Rathgeber, but suggested that the MP may have made his job to serve constituents that much harder. “I anticipate that it may be more difficult for him to get things accomplished sitting as an Independent than if he were a member of the government.” Rathgeber’s adviser, Joe Becigneul, said the Conservative association decision was expected. “That would just be standard,” he said. Becigneul said Rathgeber’s decision came within hours of his private member’s bill being “gutted.” “Brent didn’t come to the decision any quicker and they (the riding association members) were the first people to be notified.”


EDMONTON — Alberta MP Brent Rathgeber became a man without a riding association Friday, little more than a day after he quit the federal Conservative caucus. Members of Rathgeber’s Edmonton-St. Albert Conservative Association voted to cut ties with the MP and said they want to take steps immediately to find a new Conservative candidate. “The board was surprised and caught off guard by Brent’s decision,” association president Darren Bieganek said in an interview. “We’re disappointed with his decision to resign from caucus.” Bieganek said the association’s executive members met Friday morning and reached the decision unanimously. Rathgeber quit the Tory caucus late Wednesday night. He said government backbenchers had become “trained seals” that carry out the wishes of unelected officials in Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s office. In a prepared statement issued Friday, the association disagreed. “The (association) expresses its full support for the policies of the Conservative Party of Canada and its full support for the party’s leader, Prime Minister

Stephen Harper,” read the news release. Bieganek said the association is asking senior Conservative party officials to get nominations going as quickly as possible so there’s a candidate ready to go for the next election, or, if Rathgeber steps down earlier, for a byelection. Members are not insisting that Rathgeber step down before a general election, Bieganek said. Part of the reason for that is voter fatigue. “Our belief is the citizens of the riding are probably not interested in having an election right now. “We’ve had three federal elections in the last six years. We had a provincial election last year and we’ve got a municipal election coming up in October.” Rathgeber, 48, has said he has no plans to resign his seat to force a byelection and, if he does run in the next general election, it is likely to be as an Independent. The riding association’s decision does not affect the running of Rathgeber’s office, which is financed by Parliament. Rathgeber announced on Twitter that he was quitting caucus over a lack of government transparency and other concerns. He said the trigger was the government’s decision to water down his private member’s bill to expose the salaries of senior federal civil servants.

Paris 1968, Istanbul 2013 It’s certainly not another version of the Arab Spring; Turkey is a fully democratic country. It’s not just a Middle Eastern variant of the Occupy movement, either, although the demands of the huge crowds who have occupied the centre of Istanbul and other Turkish big cities are equally diffuse and contradictory. It’s more like the student uprising in Paris in May 1968, although most GWYNNE of the demonDYER strators in Turkey are neither Marxists nor students. Like the Paris demos, it began over local issues and has rapidly grown into a popular revolt against an elected government that is deeply conservative, increasingly autocratic, and deaf to all protests. The original issue was Prime Minister Recep Tayyib Erdogan’s plan to destroy Istanbul’s Gezi Park in order to build a new shopping mall in a city that already has far too many. The park is the only green space in the newer part of downtown, north of the Golden Horn, and covering it over with yet more shops was bound to meet with some resistance. Erdogan, in cahoots with the developers as usual, assumed that the plan to include a mosque in the new mall would placate his own supporters, while the plan to make the exterior of the mall a replica of an old Ottoman barracks that had once stood on the site would assuage everybody else’s unhappiness at the loss of the park. He was wrong. At the start of the protest, on May 27, only a few hundred people occupied the park. It might all have petered out if the police had not attacked them with clubs and tear gas on May 31, burning their tents after they fled. The protest-

cessive force against the people who initially started this protest ... was wrong.” But what is it really about? After all, Erdogan has led his moderate Islamist party, the Justice and Development Party (AK), to three successive wins in national elections, each time with a bigger share of the vote. He has presided over a decade of high-speed economic growth that has lifted millions out of poverty, and he has finally forced the army out of politics. Why don’t they love him? Some do, but many people think he has got too big for his boots. Erdogan retains the support of the pious and deeply conservative peasants and recent immigrants to the cities who make up the bulk of his supporters, but he wouldn’t have won without the backing of secular, urban voters who saw him as the best chance to expel the army from politics and put

Turkish democracy on a firm footing. He has now lost their trust. He won it by promising that his government would not shove conservative Islamic values down everybody else’s throats, and until recently he kept his promise. But his last election victory, in which he got 50 per cent of the vote in a multi-party race, has emboldened him to believe that he can ignore his erstwhile secular supporters. He has pushed through new laws restricting the sale and consumption of alcohol. Despite the misgivings of most Turks, he enthusiastically supports the Sunni Muslim rebels in Syria, as part of a broader strategy of re-establishing the political and economic dominance that the Ottoman Empire once enjoyed in the Sunni Arab world. He even insists on naming the proposed third bridge across the Bosphorus after the 16th century Ottoman ruler, Yavuz Sultan Selim, who is notorious for massacring tens of thousands of Turkey’s Alevi religious minority. Around a quarter of Turkey’s population are Alevis, and they have not forgotten. Once Erdogan could play public opinion like a violin; now he is arrogant and tone-deaf. So where does this end up? Not with the overthrow of Turkey’s elected government, and probably not in a military coup either. Most likely there will be apologies, and some government concessions, and the turbulence will subside. Erdogan will not even be removed as AK party leader right away, though some of his senior colleagues now clearly see him as a liability. The protesters in Paris in May 1968 didn’t get what they wanted right away either. Indeed, like the protesters in Gezi Park today, they weren’t even sure exactly what they wanted. But 11 months later Charles De Gaulle resigned, and France has never since had to cope with the problem of a Strong Man in power.

the coast, plus arrangements for aboriginal business development and job training, and sustained revenues for First Nations communities. Assuming Northern Gateway gets suitable environmental and regulatory approval from the current Joint Review Process, a new approach to First Nations participation will still be needed. That almost certainly means more substantial equity ownership (not least because the equity must be shared among so many First Nations) and aboriginal involvement in environmental and project management and oversight. First Nations must be assured that they will be primary beneficiaries from a project that crosses their lands, bringing opportunity and employment instead of the unregulated socio-economic change and environmental risk they too often experienced in the past. The way we develop resources in Canada is changing profoundly. Like it or not, Northern Gateway is a symbol for the new order. The project’s current trajectory stokes vigorous aboriginal opposition that alone could be

enough to stall or even kill a project that could create vast wealth for Canadians. A much better outcome is possible, one that meets the objections of most who oppose the project on environmental grounds and that assures aboriginal people of sustained and longterm benefits from the construction and operation of the pipeline. Northern Gateway could, with political will and openness to new arrangements, be transformed from a symbol of the new-found power of aboriginal people to stop vital national projects into a model of the real partnerships that henceforth will be the indispensable key to responsible resource development in Canada.

By the third night, city centres were being occupied all over Turkey, and it wasn’t just about Gezi Park any more. Prime Minister Erdogan, leaving for a tour of several Arab countries on Monday, dismissed the protests as the work of “a few looters” and “extremist elements,” and said he’d sort it out after he got back on Friday. Unruffled, you might call him — just as you would have described French President Charles De Gaulle in the first days of the 1968 revolt in France. It’s been a week and the protesters have not quit. Meanwhile, in Erdogan’s absence, his closest colleagues have been conciliatory. President Abdullah Gul said “the messages sent in good faith have been received,” and Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc said “The use of ex-

B.C. First Nations are key to pipeline CAN THEY BE SWAYED TO SUPPORT NORTHERN GATEWAY? BY BRIAN LEE CROWLEY AND KEN COATES SPECIAL TO THE ADVOCATE Just a few weeks ago, proponents of pipelines between the Prairies and the West Coast were preparing for the worst. Adrian Dix, the apparently victorybound leader of the B.C. NDP, had already declared Enbridge’s Northern Gateway would be dead on his watch and, mid-election, pronounced a similar sentence on Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline expansion plans. The subsequent Liberal upset victory, which many analysts attribute to the NDP’s fervent opposition to wealth-creating pipelines, has given the Northern Gateway project a partial reprieve. But despite strong federal backing, the project hangs by a thread. In fact, the B.C. government has recently expressed its opposition to the proposal. But it is First Nations along the pipeline route that hold the hammer on this project. If they remain opposed to the Enbridge proposal or to the idea of energy corridors to the coast, no pipeline will be built. Full stop. First Nations have primary social and cultural standing in this debate. If they cannot be convinced that the pipeline serves their interests and provides adequate environmental protection, the project is not going to proceed. Equally important, First Nations have growing legal clout, best embodied in the Supreme Court recognition of the government’s duty to consult and accommodate aboriginal interests, which could hold up construction indefinitely. With strong aboriginal support, however, much becomes possible. The

most intense environmental activists will oppose Northern Gateway, no matter what. More practical environmentalists and conservationists, including the B.C. public, realize that resource development can be properly and safely managed. First Nations’ support, with its environmental credibility, would likely weigh heavily with them. With aboriginal backing, we think a majority of British Columbians can be brought on board. The First Nations’ power over development arises out of a complex web of unresolved land claims, legal victories, constitutional recognition of aboriginal rights, and indigenous selfgovernment. Aboriginal Canadians are now indispensable partners in resource development — including major infrastructure — and this reality is not going to change. Nor is this a bad thing. Most First Nations are supportive of development, provided it proceeds on their terms and with appropriate returns in the form of jobs, revenue and business creation. There are dozens of major projects underway across the country in real partnership with First Nations, bringing substantial benefits to local communities, Canadian business and the national economy. How will this work for Northern Gateway? Some First Nations along the pipeline route, including the Haisla on whose traditional lands the Kitimat terminus is located, are willing to proceed with properly managed development projects. First Nations along the route will have to agree to participate in Northern Gateway, ideally as equity partners (the Enbridge proposal includes 10 per cent aboriginal equity ownership). In addition to equity participation, a proper arrangement would involve a commitment to the world’s highest standards for environmental protection along the corridor and on

out the business plan for refocused NRC, not sugar-coated statements on how beneficial the changes will be. This would help Canadians determine whether the NRC was on the right course. Instead, John McDougall, who was put in charge of the NRC by the Harper government in 2010 with the task of restructuring the council, is creating both confusion and consternation. Take his comment in an Ottawa Citizen interview earlier this year that “the discovery part of everything we are going to do for the next couple of decades is already discovered.” There’s no doubt that there will be much incremental innovation as companies continue to seek new uses from existing scientific knowledge. But many uses of existing knowledge will also depend on ongoing research into fundamental science. It’s not an either/ or process. These issues for public-funded research were set out in a brilliant small book published in 1997 called Pasteur’s Quadrant: Basic Science and Technological Development. In it the author, Donald Stokes, showed how the traditional portrayal of the linkages between basic research and innovation — the so-called linear model in which government puts money into basic research, which becomes the basis for applied research, which leads to development and technology, and, in turn, applications, which result

in business, jobs and social benefits — was out of date. Stokes noted that there have always been scientists such as Niels Bohr who pursued pure research without any thought about usefulness but which actually led to ground-breaking advances for society, scientists who pursued basic research to solve actual problems and then applied the research, for public benefit, such as Louis Pasteur, and those who aggressively pursued just applied research, such as Thomas Edison. Pasteur’s Quadrant outlines the interaction between basic and applied science with investments in basic research driven by the goal of social benefit. Pasteur is the prime example, with his pursuit of fundamental understanding in order to improve human health. The reality, Stokes argued, is that basic and applied research are closely linked. A successful society will invest in both. The real question is how Canada meets these parallel needs through a more open relationship between science and government, where accountability should include not only on how public money is spent but on how public choices are made.

This column is closed for the holidays The thing about holidays is, they are never long enough. Or way too long. Depending. We’ve all had both of those kinds probably, although I suspect most of us would take any holiday, any time, if given the chance. I’m usually in the minority in this regard, since I’ve never really had a real job where you get real holidays. Apparently, that’s what freelancing is all about. As they say, if you are self-employed at something you like doing, every day is a holiday. Of course, whoever says that is stark raving mad and has never been self-employed. The reason I bring this up now, though, in June, when it’s not even holiday season, is because I’m not here. This is different from saying I’m not all there, which is quite HARLEY a common comment when HAY it comes to Yours Truly, but what I mean is, when you are reading this (and yes I can tell if you are reading this or just skipping to Page A8), when this column appears in the Advocate, I am physically away on holidays. Through the magic of “premature filing,” I have managed to, in old-fashioned newspaper lingo “bang out” a bunch of words in roughly the order I intended before my Better Half and I left for six days in the sun and surf. Too bad the Sun and Surf is a cheap hotel on a slough in Saskatchewan. Just kidding about that last part, we did get a “package deal” to paradise for six, count ’em six big days. You know how these “package deals” go. Your Six Day Deal consists of about three and a half of those days travelling on four different airlines with nothing but peanuts and warm bottled water (at $4.50 per). This is such a “deal” that I kind of suspect that after flying for several days straight, they will bank the plane, announce that you should look out the window at your tropical destination, and they give you a funny hat, a commemorative T-shirt, a watered down Mai Tai and immediately head back home without stopping. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining — any holiday will do right about now. I’m just not really used to them, other than our yearly five-day excursion to the exotic lands of Kelowna, B.C. Even while I was a rotten little kid in Parkvale, my family never went on holidays. We never even had a car until I was darn near a rotten teenager. And even then it was a rattle trap ’58 Ford with three on the tree and a 292 under the hood. Neither of which worked all that great. So when we did actually go on a driving holiday, it was with one of my uncles. The uncles who lived the closest were farmers and for some reason only drove Dodges. But at least those Dodges, packed with uncles, aunts, parents, siblings and cousins, would make it all the way to


Banff or, if you were really lucky, to the other really, really far away compulsory holiday destination (Jasper). But against all odds, even though I was just a little rotten kidlet at the time, I remember one particular holiday, primarily because it was so exceedingly epic for our family. For us, a trip to Calgary was a huge deal. Heck, even rattling out on the gravel roads to Pine Lake was considered a rare and special event. But this time, we ventured so far above and beyond our regular driving excursions that it almost belonged in the category of intergalactic space exploration. We actually drove something like 4000 miles (6,000 km) over several days in a dirt-covered Dodge that had previously only smoothed its tires on the homegrown gravel of local farm roads. We drove to see my great aunt, who was apparently my Grandma’s sister (a fact that didn’t dawn on me for about two decades) but who was a real foreigner with an accent and everything. I thought “great aunt” was just an expression meaning “related to you in a very distant fashion” because she was such a rare thing in my life. She was an American. This meant she lived in an alien land several thousand light years from good old Central Alberta in some exotic place (or so I imagined) called “Montana.” And for our biggest holiday ever, we drove there to see her and Great Uncle Leslie, who was even more extraterrestrial in that it was he who was born in the U.S. of A., which meant by marrying him my, Great Aunt Ollie suddenly talked with an American accent. I can clearly remember that my uncle’s old Dodge had a round metal design on the dash, near the glove

compartment, and I spent 110 per cent of the threeday trip to the States propped up on the front seat between my uncle and my aunt hanging onto that round thing and steering the car. It was a great responsibility manoeuvring the Dodge on all those bumpy narrow roads of Montana, I can tell you, and one that I took very seriously. When we finally pulled into a town called Helena, where everyone talked like an American, I was so exhausted from piloting that big old Coronet or possibly Monaco that I must have finally passed out from driving because I was sound asleep and missed the big moment when we pulled up to the house. But it was my first real holiday and I can remember my relatives being wonderful warm people who had American flags everywhere and talked about how many of their sons and nephews were “in the army.” I didn’t know quite what to think of all of the flags and the army and the United States, and sometimes I still don’t, but I was sure that my whole family and my aunt and uncle must have been so happy that I drove them safely all the way to Montana to see the relatives. It was a wonderful trip — such are some holidays, snapshot memory moments exaggerated by time, embellished by imagination. So while there you are at the table sipping your coffee, or perhaps in your car on your way to Montana, here we are, looking out the tiny airplane window waving at the islands below, turning around without actually landing. All excited about three more days in airplanes on our way back home. Harley Hay is a local freelance writer, award-winning author, filmmaker and musician.

sharp increase in the number of working girls; but they are only a part of the problem, the dealers and the pimps appear as if by magic. So for a short period of time (probably a week or so), business is booming, and then for the next two or three weeks we see the results of what happened in that week. French philosopher and psychiatrist Paul Tournier said this: “The thing people fear the most is fear itself.” In the same way, the girls who have earned all this money spend it on drugs to dull the pain that their prostitution has caused in the first place, increasing rather than diminishing that pain, especially when the drugs wear off. They go through a period of time then when they want to die; the pain and remorse are so strong. It is a cycle that month after month repeats itself, supporting the comment in the 12-step programs: “We keep doing the same thing over and over expecting different results.” We just went through another week of this and it just makes me sick to my stomach to see the wrecks that emerge

after it is over. It is extremely difficult to just stand by and watch the self loathing and the recriminations that these otherwise beautiful people put themselves through. I guess that’s why many other people don’t even want to be downtown; is an out of sight, out of mind type of thing. If we really cared about this, we could reduce the amount that this does happen. All we have to do is come down to these streets in large numbers and when the action moves, move with it. Just our presence would scare away the business. It’s only because we have vacated the area that gives these customers of prostitutes and dealers the freedom to operate. We have the power to control the situation, but we have to pull ourselves away from our own comforts in order to do it. And then maybe, just maybe, these girls will see that we actually do care!

Three wounded in college shooting TWO DEAD IN BURNED HOME NEAR SHOOTING SCENE BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SANTA MONICA, Calif. — Two people were found dead Friday in a burned home near the campus of Santa Monica College, where someone sprayed a street corner with gunfire, wounding at least three people, authorities said. Police and witnesses said the gunfire began adjacent to the campus and about 3 miles from where President Barack Obama was attending a fundraising luncheon, just before noon. Police said a shooter was in custody and the campus was being searched for a possible second shooter. Jeff Furrows of the Santa Monica Fire Department said there was extensive fire damage inside the nearby home. A woman also was found with

a gunshot wound in a car outside the burned home, he said. Three shooting victims were admitted to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, hospital spokesman Mark Wheeler said. Two were in critical condition and one was in serious condition, said. Jimes Gillespie, 20, told The Associated Press he was in the college’s library studying when he heard the gunfire, and he and dozens of other students began fleeing the three-story building. “As I was running down the stairs I saw one of the gunmen,” said Gillespie, who described the shooter as a white man in his 20s, wearing cornrows in his hair and black overalls. He said the man was carrying a shotgun. Gillespie believes there were two

shooters because he heard two kinds of gunfire — a shotgun and a handgun — but only saw one person. “The shotgun blast was first. It was either him or the partner who shot eight to 10 handgun shots,” Gillespie said. “Then after I saw the gunman I heard more shots and I ran out of the library through the emergency exit.” As Gillespie ran away across campus, he said he saw a car in front of the English building that was riddled with bullet holes, had shattered windows and a baby’s car seat in the back. Santa Monica police Sgt. Rudy Flores said numerous witnesses called to report that the shooting began with a man on a street corner near the college firing shots at vehicles, including a bus. California Highway Patrol Officer Vince Ramirez said his agency began

receiving 911 calls just minutes before noon. “We understand one shooter was taken into custody shortly after we arrived,” he said. Ramirez said officers were searching the 38-acre campus after witnesses said there may have been a second shooter. He emphasized that those reports were unconfirmed. Santa Monica College is a two-year college with about 34,000 students in an area of homes and strip malls. It’s a little more than a mile from the coastal city’s beaches and pier, and about 3 miles from where Obama was attending the fundraiser. Secret Service spokesman Max Milien said the agency was aware of the shooting but it had no impact on the president’s event.

Texas actress charged with mailing threat ACCUSED OF SENDING RICIN-TAINTED LETTERS TO OBAMA

TEXARKANA, Texas — A pregnant actress who told FBI agents her husband had sent ricin-tainted letters to President Barack Obama and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg was charged Friday with threatening the president. Shannon Guess Richardson made an initial court appearance after being charged with mailing a threatening communication to the president. She could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted, U.S. attorney’s office spokeswoman Davilyn Walston said. Richardson, 35, was arrested earlier in the day for allegedly mailing the ricin-laced letters last month. It wasn’t immediately clear if she had an attorney. FBI agents wearing hazardous material suits were seen going in and out of Richardson’s house on Wednesday in nearby New Boston, northeast of Dallas near the Arkansas and Oklahoma borders. Officials have said the search was initiated after Richardson contacted the FBI and implicated her

husband, Nathaniel Richardson. John Delk, who represents Nathaniel Richardson, told the AP on Thursday that his client had filed for divorce and may have been set up by his wife. He said his client was co-operating with authorities investigating the letters, which were sent last month to Bloomberg, his Washington gun-control group and the White House threatening violence against gun-control advocates. “There are a lot of factors I’m aware of that indicate (Nathaniel Richardson) was set up in this deal by her,” Delk said. Delk said his client, a 33-year-old Army veteran, came to him to discuss a potential divorce a year ago and finally hired him on May 6, weeks before the ricin incident came to light. Delk didn’t immediately return messages Friday following the arrest. Bloomberg issued a statement Friday thanking local and federal law enforcement agencies “for their outstanding work in apprehending a suspect,” saying they worked collaboratively from the outset “and will continue to do so as the investigation continues.”

‘Night Stalker’ dies in prison BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES — Richard Ramirez, the demonic serial killer known as the Night Stalker who left satantic signs at murder scenes and mutilated victims’ bodies during a reign of terror in the 1980s, died early Friday in a hospital, a prison official said. Ramirez, 53, had been taken from San Quentin’s death row to a hospital where authorities said he died of liver failure. Prison officials said they could not release further details on the cause of death, citing federal patient privacy laws. Ramirez had been housed on death row for decades and was awaiting execution, even though it has been years since anyone has been put to death in California. At his first court appearance, Ramirez raised a hand with a pentagram drawn on it and yelled, “Hail, Satan.” His marathon trial, which ended in 1989, was a horror show in which jurors heard about one dead victim’s eyes being gouged out and another’s head being nearly severed. Courtroom observers wept when survivors of some of the attacks testified. Ramirez was convicted of 13 murders that terrorized Southern California in 1984 and 1985 as well as charges of rape, sodomy, oral copulation, burglary and attempted murder. The killing spree reached its peak in the hot summer of 1985, as the nocturnal killer entered homes through unlocked windows and doors and killed men and women with gunshot blasts to the head or knives to the throat, sexually assaulted female victims, and burglarized the residences. He was dubbed the “Night Stalker” by the press while residents were warned to lock their doors and windows at night. Some of the crimes were grisly beyond imagining: A man was murdered in his bed and his wife was raped beside the dead body. The killer beat a small child and attempted to sodomize him. There were also signs of devil worship — a pentagram drawn on the wall 30964F8

at one murder scene and survivors’ accounts of being ordered to “swear to Satan ” by the killer. Ramirez was finally chased down and beaten in 1985 by residents of a blue-collar East Los Angeles neighbourhood as he attempted a carjacking.

Shannon Richardson’s resume on the Internet movie database IMDb said she has had small television roles in “The Vampire Diaries” and “The Walking Dead.” She had a minor role in the movie “The Blind Side” and appeared in an Avis commercial, according to the resume. Delk said the Richardsons were expecting their first child in October. Shannon Richardson also has five children ranging in age from 4 to 19 from other relationships, four of whom had been living with the couple in the New Boston home, the attorney said. The FBI is investigating at least three cases over the past two months in

which ricin was mailed to Obama and other public figures. Ricin has been sent to officials sporadically over the years, but experts say that there seems to be a recent uptick and that copycat attacks — made possible by the relative ease of extracting the poison — may be the reason. If inhaled, ricin can cause respiratory failure, among other symptoms. If swallowed, it can shut down the liver and other organs, resulting in death. The amount of ricin that can fit on the head of a pin is said to be enough to kill an adult if properly prepared. No antidote is available, though researchers are trying to develop one.

ummer provides the ideal opportunity for families to reconnect and make memories together, but it can also be a time of boredom for children and frustration for parents. The difference between a summer filled with memorable moments and one that is frustrating and exhausting comes down to planning. Families that take the time to discuss their expectations and make a plan for what they want their summer to look like are more likely to have the summer of their dreams than those who DEBBIE decide to just wing it. OLSEN Here are some ideas for fun family activities and getaways for families who want to plan their best summer ever. It doesn’t take a lot of money to spend time together as a family; it just takes some time and a good plan.

A big buzz about bees BY CAROL PATTERSON SPECIAL TO THE ADVOCATE When I discovered every third bite of my food comes from a pollinator’s actions, I knew it was time to overcome my fear of bees and learn more about these fascinating creatures. The honeybee — apis mellifera — seems to be in the news frequently as people’s interest in eating locally and in gardening grows. Canada declared May 29 their first national honeybee day and the organization Apiaries and Bees for Communities is helping people install beehives in city backyards. The honeybees seen around Alberta are the result of early tourists. Before the Europeans arrived in North America, there were no bees of the apis species in the New World. Bees work hard to make honey — a half kg will take 25,000 trips from the flowers to the hive. The flavour of the honey comes from the flowers the bees visit; it is estimated that a half-kg of honey has the essence of two million flowers. Only female worker bees gather pollen. Male drones mate with the queen and die. Worker bees come from fertilized eggs, drones from unfertilized eggs, so technically drones have no fathers although they have a grandfather on their mother’s side! Alberta produces two per cent of the world’s honey and three out the province’s seven wineries use honey to create their products. Fermenting honey results in an alcoholic beverage called mead, a drink that people have enjoyed for hundreds of years. If you would like to sample mead or learn more about the fascinating world of bees, try a day trip to one of these bee tourism attractions.

Spirit Hills Winery, near Turner Valley Spirit winery owners Isle and Hugo Bonjean started beekeeping to improve their farming. An amateur wine and beer maker, Hugo experimented with honey as a base. Now their wines can be found at some of the best hotels in Southern Alberta. The Bonjeans use biodynamic farming principles — a practice that helps Hugo know when to put on his beekeeping suit.

“The bees are more stingy on root days. “They are the calmest and friendliest on fruit and flower days. Even though I practise biodynamic farming in the garden, with the bees, I have to take any good weather I can and do not stick to the biodynamic calendar. “I only keep an eye on it in order to know what kind of behaviour I might get from the bees on a certain day.” Spirit Winery offers free tours but you need to call in advance. Go to http://www.spirithillswinery. com for more information.

Chinook Honey Company, Okotoks You can watch bees without worrying about stings at the Chinook Honey Company’s observation hive. They have honey products, a mead winery and a chance to learn about apitherapy — the medicinal use of honey products. Bees produce propolis from tree resins, sometimes called ‘nature’s penicillin.’ A special harvest event on Saturday, Aug. 24, offers tours, demonstrations, food and fun. The site is closed Tuesdays. Go to for more information.

Beeland, Spillimacheen, B.C. All things bee-related can be found in this old general store. Started by beekeeper Morley Winnick in 2007, Beeland sells honey and food products with a honey base. such as hot sauce, salsas, chili starter, jams, and canned fruits. Morley says, “Our honey is predominately alpine wildflower honey. The bees are located on up to seven apiary sites throughout the region, and these sites produce quite unique and distinct flowers and nectar for honey.” Several beehives sit near Beeland, where you can enjoy a cup of coffee, with honey sweetener of course, while admiring the stunning view of Jubilee Mountain. It is open every day. Go to for more information. Carol Patterson helps businesses and people reinvent themselves through adventure. When she isn’t travelling for work, Carol is travelling for fun.

SUMMER: Annual family pass available Learning is fun

Great outdoor getaways If you have never gone on a family camping trip, the thought of such an expedition can be intimidating. Parks Canada is in the process of developing a new type of accommodation called the oTENTik to help families get away to nature without having to worry about dirt and bugs. The name is a takeoff of the word “authentic” and the units are a cross between a tent and a cabin. There will be 10 built in Banff National Park and 10 in Kootenay National Park and it is expected they will be ready for use this July. Each unit sleeps six people and comes with mattresses, a wood stove, pots and pans, a table and chairs, a propane barbecue and a fire pit. The 10 oTENTiks in Banff National Park will also have electrical outlets. The units will rent for $150 a night in Banff National Park and $145 a night in Kootenay National Park and will operate on a first-com first-served basis this year. In 2014, they will be added to the Parks Canada reservation system, along with an additional 10 oTENTiks in Jasper National Park. For more information, visit the Parks Canada website: Private tour operators also offer a no-muss, nofuss camping set up. A personal favourite is Sundance Lodges in Kananaskis. For $84.50 per night, you can rent a trapper’s tent or a large tepee with beds for four people. They can also supply bedding, cooking utensils, a camp stove, towels and other supplies for an additional charge. For more information, visit

Send the kids to camp or go with them For many children, summer camp is one of the highlights of their summer break. Kids can learn new skills or further develop existing skills and abilities in various areas of interest. It’s important to plan ahead and choose the camp that will be of the most interest to your child. Some institutions even offer family camps, where parents and kids can have fun together and meet other families in the process. One of the most wellestablished family summer camps is the Royal Tyrrell Museum’s Encana Badlands Family Science Camp. The camp allows parents and kids to prospect together for fossils in the Badlands, make casts of real dinosaur bones, dig in a simulated quarry, take a behind-the-scenes tour of the Royal Tyrrell Museum, and enjoy campfire activities while sleeping inside a real tepee. The cost of the three-night/fourday camp is $195 for kids (five to 15 years) and $230 for adults (16 and older). For more information, visit Hot tax tip: Some summer camps are tax deductible and qualify for the Children’s Arts Tax Credit (CATC) program or the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit (CFTC). For example, the Encana Badlands Science Camp qualifies for the CATC and parents can claim the entire amount of their child’s camp registration as a deduction on their income tax. The tax credit typically applies to youth camps only and not to family camps. The summer camp must fit the requirements for the tax credit as stated by Revenue Canada.

Learning should not stop just because summer break begins. Studies have shown that children can benefit from some structured learning activities during their time off school and that these can actually prevent the academic regression that sometimes occurs during the long summer break. Participating in fun, educational activities with your child can help them to develop a love of learning that may start them on the path of becoming a lifelong learner.

GONCHAR TRADED OTTAWA — If Sergei Gonchar continues his NHL career next season, it won’t be in Ottawa after the Senators traded the defenceman’s rights to the Dallas Stars on Friday for a conditional sixth-round pick in this year’s draft. The 39-yearold Russian played the past three seasons for Ottawa, recording 15 goals and 76 assists. Gonchar, whose veteran presence on the Senators’ blue-line helped offset the loss of Erik Karlsson for much of the regular season, was reportedly seeking a multi-year deal. He’s set to be an unrestricted free agent July 5. Reports indicated he was considering signing in Russia’s Kontinental Hockey League.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Boston 1 Pittsburgh 0 BOSTON — Adam McQuaid scored early in the third period, Tuukka Rask posted his second shutout of the series, and the Boston Bruins swept their way to the Stanley Cup finals with a 1-0 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday night. The Bruins won the Eastern Conference finals 4-0 and held the high-scoring Penguins to just two goals in the stunning sweep. Boston will face either the Chicago Blackhawks or Los Angeles Kings when the Bruins shoot for their second Stanley Cup title in three years. Chicago leads the Western Conference series 3-1 and can advance to the finals with a home win on Saturday night. If the Blackhawks get there, it will set up the first finals matchup of Original Six NHL franchises since 1979. The Penguins’ season ended swiftly and shockingly as the league’s highest-scoring team got no points in the series from offensive stars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. “He is the best player in the world,” Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron said of Crosby. “We did a good job with that.” McQuaid scored at 5:01 of the final period on a 45-foot slap shot from the right over the glove of goalie Tomas Vokoun. That unleashed loud chants of “We want the

Cup!” from the capacity crowd. “We were a little sluggish the first two periods,” Bruins forward Milan Lucic said, “and we said, ’We have to win a period to win a series.”’ They did just that. The top-seeded Penguins were trying to overcome both the dis-

ciplined defence of the fourth-seeded Bruins and history. Only three teams had lost a series after winning the first three games. The last was the Bruins in the 2010 Eastern Conference semifinals against the Philadelphia Flyers. Pittsburgh, which never led in any of the

four games against the Bruins, was swept for the first time in 47 series. The last team to do it to the Penguins was Boston in 1979. The Penguins also lost the first three games of their opening-round series last year against Philadelphia before being eliminated in six

games. Rask was solid again with 26 saves, but didn’t have to stop many challenging shots. His last save came with his glove at the final buzzer on Matt Niskanen’s shot from 40 feet.

Cabrera leads Jays over Rangers CANADIAN PRESS Toronto 6 Texas 1 TORONTO — The timing of Toronto’s fourrun rally couldn’t have worked out better for Blue Jays reliever Neil Wagner on Friday night. Edwin Encarnacion hit a two-run double to spark the sixth-inning outburst as Toronto dumped the Texas Rangers 6-1 at Rogers Centre. Starter Esmil Rogers worked four innings and four relievers provided five innings of shutout ball as Toronto (26-34) took the opener of the three-game series. Wagner relieved Aaron Loup with two outs in the sixth and recorded four outs for his first major-league victory. It was a nice reward for the right-hander, who has yet to allow a run in five appearances since he was called up from triple-A Buffalo over a week ago. “We really liked his arm in spring training,” said manager John Gibbons. “But now he’s pitching. He went down (to Buffalo) determined.

He’s more of a pitcher than we saw at spring training. He’s got that great arm.” Wagner (1-0), a 29-year-old Minneapolis native, played briefly for the Oakland Athletics in 2011 but has essentially been a career minor leaguer. He earned his callup with the Blue Jays after going 1-0 with a 0.89 earned-run average in 19 appearances for the Bisons. Wagner, who allowed one hit over one and-athird innings for the victory, said he scrapped his curve ball in the off-season and has been pounding the strike zone more often. “I worked pretty hard this off-season on changing what I felt I needed to change from last season to this season,” Wagner said. “I’ve just been repeating that and things have been going well.” He added that it helps when your fellow relievers are in top form. “Everyone in the bullpen is throwing well,” he said. “It’s good to know that if you come in and you struggle, you have

It’s a fun group to be a part of.” Gibbons wanted to keep Rogers — usually

a reliever — around the 80-pitch mark so he turned to the bullpen after the fourth inning. Rogers had six strikeouts and the relievers added seven more.

“Everybody was fresh, everybody was basically on four days rest so they all needed to pitch,” Gibbons said.

Blackhawks hope to close out Kings at home in Game 5 ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO — When the Chicago Blackhawks were in deep trouble in the second round of the playoffs, they used desperation to their advantage and pulled off a big comeback in an already impressive season. After the Blackhawks lost top defenceman Duncan Keith to a suspension before Game 4 of the Western Conference finals, Chicago didn’t let the Los Angeles Kings get even, despite their

dominant home record. Now that the topseeded Blackhawks are just one win away from reaching the Stanley Cup finals, they want to play with the same sense of urgency when they hit the ice at home for Game 5 on Saturday night. “I think we can just go into (Saturday’s) game with the mindset that we’re down 3-1,” Chicago captain Jonathan Toews said Friday. “Something we said the last couple games in L.A., obviously being up 2-0 or 2-1, you know the other team

is going to come at you hard. “It’s up to you to motivate yourself and try and put yourself in that position that you feel like you’re in a seventh game.” Toews and company returned to Chicago on Friday after snapping Los Angeles’ 15-game home winning streak with a 3-2 victory on Thursday night that gave them a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series against the defending Stanley Cup champions. The Blackhawks got

it done without Keith, who was as excited as many of his teammates had ever seen him when they came into the locker room after the victory. The Kings need three straight victories against the NHL’s top-seeded team to prolong their title defence, but they won’t have to look very far for inspiration. “You look at the opponent we’re playing. They were in the exact same situation and they came out of it in the last round,” Kings defenceman Robyn Regehr said.

“It’s something that is very doable. We’re preparing to win one game (Saturday) and that’s as far as we’re looking right now.” Chicago dropped three of the first four games in the second round against Detroit, then returned home and beat the Red Wings 4-1 in Game 5. The momentum moved over to the Blackhawks, who earned two more victories to advance.

Fynnigan Buhler, 9, of the Edmonton-based Olympic Swim Club, competes in the 400-metre freestyle at the Red Deer Catalina Swim Club’s Freeze or Fry meet on Friday. The annual meet at the Recreation Centre outdoor pool ends on Sunday.



PARIS — His dramatic and delightful French Open semifinal was 4 ½ hours old — and 14 games into the fifth set — when Rafael Nadal raced from the net to the baseline to retrieve Novak Djokovic’s seemingly unreachable lob. Many players wouldn’t have bothered to give chase, let alone attempt what Nadal actually accomplished: With his back to the court, he somehow sent a lob the other way by flipping the ball between his legs. Perhaps surprised the 11-stroke point was not already his, Djokovic flubbed an easy overhead smash into the net. Two games later, Nadal flicked another, more traditional, defensive lob, and Djokovic sailed his response 5 feet long, the earlier mistake no doubt on his mind. Three points later, the blink-andyou-miss-something match was over. In a contest chock full of lengthy exchanges, moments of mastery and occasional lapses by both men, seventime French Open champion Nadal returned to the final with a 6-4, 3-6, 6-1, 6-7 (3), 9-7 victory over the No. 1-ranked Djokovic on Friday. By the finish, it was not just a test of skill but also of stamina and perseverance, two qualities Nadal possesses in abundance. “This one is a special one,” Nadal said. “If we talk about everything that makes a match big, today we had all of these ingredients.” Except, of course, a glistening silver cup for the winner and a runner’s-up tray for the loser. Those will be on offer Sunday, when Nadal faces David Ferrer in an all-Spanish final with a chance to become the only man with eight titles at any Grand Slam tournament. “When you have a win and you have the trophy, it means more,” said Nadal, who will be seeking his 12th major

championship overall. The fourth-seeded Ferrer reached his first Grand Slam final by defeating France’s Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-1, 7-6 (3), 6-2 Friday. The 31-year-old Ferrer, previously 0-5 in major semifinals, ended Tsonga’s bid to give the host country its first male champion since Yannick Noah in 1983. “I want to enjoy this moment,” Ferrer said. That’s understandable, given not only that this is his 42nd appearance in a Grand Slam tournament but also that his record against is Nadal is 4-19. Then again, 17 of those head-to-head matches came on clay, and no one has been able to withstand Nadal’s relentless, will-sapping style on that surface. Nadal is 58-1 in his French Open career; the loss came to Robin Soderling in the fourth round in 2009. Nadal later said bad knees were partly to blame for that defeat. On Friday, he was wearing a thick strip of white tape below his left knee, which sidelined him for about seven months until February. Since returning, Nadal is 42-2 with six titles, reaching the finals of all nine tournament’s he’s entered. “For us, it’s really a miracle,” said Toni Nadal, Rafael’s uncle and coach. At his best against the best of his era, Nadal is now 20-14 overall against Djokovic and 20-10 against 17-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer. He is 5-0 against each at Roland Garros. “An unbelievable match to be part of, but all I can feel now is disappointment. That’s it,” said Djokovic, who lost to Nadal in last year’s final and still needs a French Open title to complete a career Grand Slam. “He showed the courage in the right moments and went for his shots. ... I congratulate him, because that’s why he’s a champion.”

BRUINS: Pressure “He has been the reason why we’re here,” Bergeron said of Rask. “We just played our game the whole time. We put a lot of pressure in their zone.” The Penguins had been shut out just twice in their previous 147 games before being blanked twice in the four games against the Bruins. Pittsburgh lost Game 1 at home 3-0. McQuaid scored his second goal of the playoffs after the defenceman managed just one in 32 games during the regular season. Brad Marchand held the puck along the left boards in the offensive zone and waited for McQuaid to skate up ice. Marchand fed the puck toward the blue line where McQuaid, with no Penguins player close to him, unleashed the winning shot.

JAYS: Played well “So they were definitely strong. That doesn’t always work in your favour. Sometimes when you’re too strong you’re a little erratic but tonight that wasn’t the case. “But it was nice to watch, that’s for sure.” Melky Cabrera hit a solo homer in the fourth inning and had three of Toronto’s six hits. Cabrera and Munenori Kawasaki scored two runs apiece. “We didn’t get a lot of hits tonight but it was good fundamental baseball,” Gibbons said. “Getting guys in, getting them over, that kind of thing. It was a well-played game.” The Blue Jays loaded the bases with nobody out in the sixth inning and Encarnacion drove a pitch from Rangers starter Nick Tepesch (3-5) into leftcentre field to push two runs across. Toronto added two more runs in the frame on sacrifice flies by Adam Lind and J.P. Arencibia. Texas (36-24) entered play with the

best record in the American League and started strong by opening the scoring in the first inning. Jurickson Profar hit a one-out single up the middle and moved to second on a balk. A.J. Pierzynski lined out before Adrian Beltre lashed a single to centre field. Outfielder Colby Rasmus hurried the throw home but it was well offline and Profar scored easily.

CHICAGO: Doesn’t want to go to L.A. That is one big reason why the Blackhawks are hoping to finish off the Kings in Game 5 and avoid another trip to Los Angeles, where the Kings are 8-1 during this year’s playoffs and 14-4 over the past two postseasons. “We were on the other end of this, so we kind of know what they’re thinking,” Chicago defenceman Johnny Oduya said. “We know this is not over. This is a really, really good team and we know — said it last night, too — we don’t want to go back to L.A. That’s a tough place to play.” The Kings jumped out to a 1-0 lead on Thursday night and led 2-1 late in the second period, but were unable to hold on. They managed just two shots in the third as the NHL’s longest postseason home winning streak since 2009 ended. “I couldn’t tell you what caused that,” Kings captain Dustin Brown said, referring to the lack of quality opportunities in the third. “We have to get more pucks to the net, more bodies to the net. That’s not just the third, it’s the whole series. The Hawks have done a good job in limiting our rush chances.” This is the 12th time the Kings have opened a playoff series with three losses in four games. The only time they were able to advance was in 1989 against Edmonton. Only 25 NHL teams have accomplished the feat.



EDMONTON — Five UCI World Tour professional cycling teams — including the previously announced Garmin-Sharp (U.S.), Cannondale Pro Cycling (Italy), BMC Racing Team (U.S.), Blanco Pro Cycling Team (Netherlands) Team Argos-Shimano (Netherlands) — highlight the initial teams announced for the first and largest stage race ever held in Canada, the Tour of Alberta. The Tour, which runs Sept. 3-8, will involve Red Deer, with the second stage starting in Devon and finishing in the downtown Red Deer area, at 50th street between 47th and 48th avenues. China’s top pro continental team Champion System Pro Cycling Team, Canadian continental team Equipe Garneau-Quebecor and American Team SmartStop presented by Mountain Khakis, and the top U.S. continental team Optum Pro Cycling presented by Kelly Benefit Strategies round out the initial nine of 15 teams announced. “We are extremely pleased with the interest we received from cycling teams around the world about participating in the inaugural year of the Tour of Alberta, and very excited to confirm some of the top teams in the world will be racing in the province this September,” said Duane Vienneau, the executive director of the Alberta Peloton Association, which is organizing the Tour of Alberta. “Cycling fans will be thrilled, and fans new to the sport will be blown away by the calibre of the teams and the athletes who will be coming to Canada this fall.” Garmin-Sharp’s squad is comprised of many top North American riders, including: Canadian cyclist Ryder Hesjedal; the 2012 Tour of Italy winner as well as 2012 USA Pro Challenge winner Christian Vande Velde; 2011 Tour de France top American finisher Tom Danielson; Tour de France stage winner Tyler Farrar; and rising stars like Dan Martin of Ireland. Cannondale Pro Cycling is Italy’s top squad and consists of star riders like Peter Sagan, a 10-time stage winner of the Amgen Tour of California and a three-time Tour de France and Sprint Points jersey winner in 2012, and other sprinters including Elia Viviani, a recent stage winner in France’s

Criterium du Dauphine. The BMC Racing team is one of the teams with the most depth on its roster, which includes: world-champion Philippe Gilbert; former World Champion and 10-time Tour de France stage winner Thor Hushovd; American rising star Taylor Phinney, who finished fourth in both the road race and time trial in the 2012 London Olympic Games; sprinter Daniel Oss, a stage winner in the 2011 USA Pro Challenge; and American sensation Tejay van Garderen, the 2013 Amgen Tour of California winner and fifth place overall finisher in the 2012 Tour de France. Blanco Pro Cycling Team is the Netherlands’ top professional squad and boasts a deep and talented roster that includes: Robert Gesink, the 2012 Amgen Tour of California winner and 2010 Grand Prix Montreal World Cup winner; young upstarts Wilco Kelderman and Stef Clement; one-time Tour de France KOM leader Laurens Ten Dam; and four-time Tour de France stage winner Luis Leon Sanchez. Optum Pro Cycling presented by Kelly Benefit Strategies continues to pursue winning at the highest level and is one of the top teams racing on the Americas Tour continental calendar. The team’s roster includes: recently crowned 2013 U.S. National Time Trial Champion Tom Zirbel; Chad Haga, who recently finished 10th overall at this year’s Amgen Tour of California; and U.S. National Criterium Champion Ken Hanson. Team Argos-Shimano is a new Pro Tour team and contains many top sprinters including Marcel Kittel, considered one of the fastest men in the world. Champion System is Asia’s top professional squad and its roster contains five national champions, including 2012 Canadian National Champion Ryan Roth as well as Ryan Anderson, who originally hails from Edmonton. Equipe Garneau-Quebecor is a new continental team, which shows signs of the growth of professional cycling in Canada. The team is sponsored by famed Canadian cyclist Louis Garneau, considered by many as one of Canada’s trailblazers of the sport. The remaining six teams to fill out the 15-team field will be announced later this month, and the final team rosters will be announced in August.

RED DEER ADVOCATE Saturday, June 8, 2013 B7

English shoots a 64 to take solo lead after two rounds shoot low scores,” Love said. English opened with a 66 putting himself into the knot of players tied at 4 under atop the leaderboard after the first 18 holes. Teeing off Friday morning, English used his putter to start with three birdies in three holes, rolling in putts from 9, 10 and 17 feet. Then English had possibly the shot of the day on the par-4 No. 5 playing at 482 yards. After a 3-wood off the tee, he hit an 8-iron 181 yards from the fairway and watched the ball roll at least 10 feet before falling into the cup for eagle. “I haven’t holed out in a while,” English said. “To make it on 2, probably the hardest hole on the golf course, is kind of unbelievable.” English dropped a 15-footer on the par-4 15th to become the first player here to reach double-digits under par, and he added a 10-footer on the par5 16th after hitting his shot from the rough just in front of the green. That birdie put him 11 under. “I grew up on greens like this down in south Georgia, fast Bermuda greens,” English said. “I’m very comfortable on these type of greens. I know when it’s going to be fast, and it’s really fast. And when into the green, it’s really slow. I have a good handle on the speed. That’s really what helped me today. When you get the speed down on the greens, you can start making some putts.” English also is very familiar with Tennessee. He played at The Baylor School in Chattanooga, helping win four state titles including an individual high school championship for himself.

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Harris English is becoming more comfortable on the PGA Tour every week, and feels right at home on TPC Southwind’s Bermuda grass greens. English shot a 6-under 64 on Friday to open a two-stroke lead in the St. Jude Classic. The 23-year-old former Georgia star had never even had a piece of a lead on the PGA Tour until Thursday when he found himself tied with five others, including Davis Love III, after 18 holes. He used a hot putter to roll in five birdie putts, holed out from 181 yards for eagle on the par-4 fifth and had only one bogey to finish the second round at 10-under 130. “It’s awesome to be in this position,” English said. “I’ve worked very hard the last couple weeks and couple months to get in this position, and I feel like I’m ready and I feel like I got a lot of good people around me to help me.” Shawn Stefani was second after a 65. Paul Haley II and Scott Stallings each shot 68 to reach 5 under. Love was tied with four others at 4 under after a 70, and defending champion Dustin Johnson also had a 70 to finish at 3 under. Phil Mickelson was 2 under after a 67 in his final tuneup for the U.S. Open next week at Merion in Pennsylvania. Only four players had rounds of 4 under or better on a near perfect day at TPC Southwind. Doug Labelle II and Scott Verplank were the only other players to go at least 4 under with a 66 apiece. But English turned in the best round


Ben Crane hits out of the sand trap on the seventh hold during the second round of the St. Jude Classic golf tournament Friday, in Memphis, Tenn. on a course playing very tough despite a temperature around 80 degrees — very rare at this time of year in Memphis. Any wind came out of the north instead of the south. Combined with the small and firm greens, hitting the greens required precise shots. Hitting the fairways also is a must to control shots to the greens. “Obviously, if he has another two days like the first two, it will be tough to catch him,” Johnson said about English. “But I would say I look forward to being bunched throughout on Sunday coming down the stretch.” This is English’s second year on tour after finishing up his college career at

Georgia in 2011. The 6-foot-3 English was still an amateur when he won on the Tour at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Invitational in July 2011, and he moved to the PGA Tour in 2012 and finished 79th on the money list. This year, he already has three top 10s, including his best finish yet with a tie for sixth at the Zurich Classic in New Orleans. Love has kept track of English for years. English lives in Sea Island, and Love isn’t surprised by how well he is playing. “His game has really improved, and he’s playing well and he’s not afraid to

Spurs star Duncan savouring another trip to the NBA finals AT 37, DUNCAN LOOKING FOR HIS FIFTH TITLE

MIAMI — For all the playoff slugfests he has endured over the years, for all the elbows to the ribs he’s taken in the post, for all the post-season runs between this NBA Finals and his last one, precious little has changed for Tim Duncan. His expressive face looks remarkably similar in 2013 to the one that helped the San Antonio Spurs to their first championship in 1999. His game is still built on fundamentals and smarts more than athleticism and speed. And he still plays for the same coach, in the same system and with the same two stars by his side that brought three titles to the River Walk in five years. You see Duncan in Game 1 against Miami on Thursday night, controlling the paint, finding the open man and cleaning up the boards like he’s always done. And then you realize he’s 37 years old, and his last trip to the NBA Finals was six years ago. That may not seem so far back to most players. To Duncan, it felt like an eternity. And now that he’s finally here, with a chance for title No. 5, he’s playing with the urgency of a man that doesn’t know how many more chances he’s going to get. “It felt like a long time,” Duncan said on Friday, one day after posting 20 points, 14 rebounds, four blocks and three assists in San Antonio’s 92-88 win over Miami in Game 1. “I definitely appreciate being back out here, to see the finals banners all around and to see the patch on the jersey and all those little things, the last couple of days it’s really been sinking in. “I think I really do appreciate it more now, having been gone so long.” That Duncan, the most understated of stars, is focusing on those little details that he never did before should come as no surprise. He’s never been one for the pyrotechnic pre-game introductions; never craved the spotlight that comes with playing for the championship. What he has stood for more than anything over the years is dependability. Everyone knows what he brings to the table, and the fact that he keeps bringing it year-in and year-out has earned him an unparalleled level of

respect and admiration within the league — if not among the casual fan who craves soaring dunks and wicked crossovers. “The way he’s played his whole career, he’s continued to play that way,” Heat guard Ray Allen said. “In this world we live in, consistency is all we ask. You get paid a lot of money and you get respect by doing it.” Some fans want more. They want highlights and sound bites, big plays and bigger personalities. That’s never been Duncan’s style, and never been the Spurs’ way, which is why arguably the greatest power forward in league history so often gets overshadowed in his own time by the likes of Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Kevin Durant. Now in his 16th season in the league and producing like he’s fresh out of college, Duncan is reluctantly being thrust into the spotlight once more in these finals. He averaged 17.8 points, 9.9 rebounds and 2.7 blocks per game in the regular season, becoming the second oldest player to earn All-NBA first team honours. And he’s built off that with a stirring post-season run. “Timmy is being recognized as one of the great, enduring Hall of Fame, top 10 players of all-time,” Commissioner David Stern said. “They’re getting what they deserve.” Duncan has long since handed over the reins to the Spurs offence to point guard Tony Parker, but his influence and impact hasn’t waned in the least. “This will always be Timmy’s franchise,” Parker said. “Always. Should do a statue for him outside the AT&T Center.” What would that statue look like? “Looking mean,” Parker said. “Something like that.” He shrugged off an 0-for-5 start to Game 1 by making eight of his last 14 shots in the game, giving Chris Bosh fits on the low block and forcing him out to the perimeter, where the AllStar forward was rendered almost obsolete. “Timmy is unbelievable,” said Spurs point guard Tony Parker, who couldn’t resist a chance to take a jab at his buddy. “At his age, 50, doing what he’s doing is crazy. It’s crazy. I don’t know how he does it, seriously. It’s unbelievable.” Game 2 goes Sunday in Miami.

CALGARY — Taylor Crosby insists she didn’t become a goaltender to avoid comparisons with her brother. The younger sister of Sidney Crosby understands she’ll still be compared to the NHL superstar in terms of how far she goes in hockey. But she’s OK with that. “Even now, there is a comparison I think from the media or other people, but I don’t put it on myself,” Taylor said Thursday night. “I think a lot of people will expect you to be a certain way or to be a certain type of player and be really good. “I know I’m my own person. I try to use him as a role model and (follow) his work ethic, but I don’t compare myself to him. I’m never going to be him and he’s never going to be me.” The 17-year-old player from Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia, was one of 15 female goaltending prospects Hockey Canada invited to a five-day camp that opened Thursday evening at WinSport’s Markin MacPhail Centre. While Sidney Crosby and his Pittsburgh Penguins attempt to stave off elimination in the NHL’s Eastern Conference finals, Taylor is getting her first taste of the national women’s hockey program. She is one of eight goaltenders under 18 invited to camp; the other seven are under-22 prospects. “It’s really cool,” she said. “It’s my first time I’ve experienced being part of the national team program.” She didn’t start playing hockey until the relatively late age of 10. Sidney, who is eight years older, was living away from home playing in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Crosby can’t quite pinpoint why goaltending was her calling, other than the fact her father Troy was a goaltender who was drafted by the Montreal Canadiens in 1984. “I just woke up one day and said ’going to be a goalie,”’ she said. “Part of it was my dad. He was a goalie. I was always a little weird, so it kind of fits.” She is entering her senior year at the Minnesota prep school Shattuck-St. Mary’s, where her brother led the boys’ team to a national title in 2003. Crosby, 5-foot-8 and 150 pounds, had a 13-7 record, 2.04 goals-against average, .924 save percentage and three shutouts for the girls’ prep team this past season. Sidney Crosby started shooting pucks on his sister in 2010. He continues to do so if they happen to be home at the same time and Taylor is about to head off to school. “As I get older I’m stopping a few more. I think he’s getting frustrated,” she said with a laugh. There are perks to being Sidney Crosby’s sibling. One is going to the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. And for Taylor Crosby the highlight was not her brother’s overtime goal in the men’s final but the gold medal won by the Canadian women’s hockey team. She sees Sidney as a brother first and a hockey player second. “I think he’s a really great person and a really great brother,” Crosby said. “I’m just really hap-

py he’s my brother not just because he’s a hockey player but the kind of person he is.” Crosby was a late addition to the women’s under-18 invitees this week. “You never want to miss anybody,” Hockey Canada scout Melody Davidson said. “She had shown potential in past years so it’s probably a good move to take a look at where she’s at, someone you don’t get to see often and eligible to play for our country.”

Muffling the noise CITY EXAMINES WAYS TO POLICE NOISY VEHICLES BY CRYSTAL RHYNO ADVOCATE STAFF Souped-up trucks revving through Red Deer streets may soon face a roadblock. On Monday, Red Deer city council will consider options to muffle the noise as part of its vehicle attenuation plans. In October, council directed administration to continue exploring options for another six months and set recommendations. The city considered a standard decibel reader used in Edmonton for motorcycles only.

Now the city is considering a “noise snare,” technology that is being piloted in Calgary and has a broader scope of detection for all vehicles. Calgary piloted the first generation and the developer is working on a second generation that may be available this summer. The price would come in at between $50,000 to $60,000 per unit, roughly half the cost of the first generation. The city report says “this technology is still in the early stages of development and evidence of its effectiveness has not been proven.” The snare can be mounted and oper-

BRIEFS Preliminary hearing ordered in murder case A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for an Olds man accused of murder. Dustin Piper, 24, was charged in the death of Airdrie resident Garland Curtis, 40. RCMP were called to investigate on Jan. 12, when one of Curtis’s co-workers in Fort McMurray became concerned because the man had not showed up for work. His body was found by police checking his home in Airdrie. Investigators arrested Piper in March on a charge of first-degree murder. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 20 in Calgary. Preliminary hearings are held to determine whether the Crown has sufficient evidence to proceed to trial.

ate unmanned on vehicles. When a vehicle passes, a reader indicates a level of noise above the acceptable limit. The equipment records a sound and creates a video and registers the time, date and location. City administration is recommending a review on the capabilities and a noise snare pilot. Staff also recommend to continue using municipal and provincial legislation related to vehicle attenuation as opposed to changing local bylaws. The issue has been on and off council’s plate since 2009.

June is Brain Injury Awareness Month and a variety of events will be held to educate the public and support people with brain injuries. On Thursday, Central Alberta Brain Injury Society, the Canadian Mental Health Association and Cosmos are hosting an information session with Bob Yoisten, a certified health and wellness coach, who will speak about brain injury research, the importance of active living and goal setting. Yoisten has a brain injury and will speak about his experiences. The session, to be held from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., is geared to people with brain injuries and their families, and those who work with people with brain injuries. To register, call CMHA at 403-342-2266 by June 12. Lunch will be served. CABIS will hold its annual silent auction at Parkland Mall from June 15 to 17. Money raised will go towards supporting people with brain injuries, their family and caregivers.

Rezoning issues at council Red Deerians are invited to give input on a recommended affordable housing site and a designated expressway among the five public hearings slated for Monday. The hearings get underway at 6 p.m. in city council chambers. The rezoning of 4615 Riverside Drive to allow for the Red Deer Friendship Society’s affordable housing and cultural centre project is second on the agenda. City administration is recommending changing the zoning to public service residential district from parks and recreation to allow for the change. Changes to the East Hill Major Area Structure Plan (MASP) and Municipal Development Plan (MDP) are needed to incorporate the 2009 annexation area to the east into city planning documents, to complete the review on the East Hill MASP and include direction provided by the city’s adopted planning tools. Council is asked to approve corresponding documents, including the Municipal Development Bylaw, the East Hill Major Area Structure Plan and the Land Use Bylaw Amendment. Within the plans, administration is recommending to continue with the current expressway designation of 20th Avenue and to remove the town centre designation in the north east. A hearing is also on tap for the rezoning of Laredo Phase 2 in Lancaster/Vanier East neighbourhood under the Land Use Bylaw for a variety of residential lots and public open space.

Patio performers on tap Patio season has kicked off in Red Deer with lots of performances scheduled this summer. Chloe Albert will give free musical performances on Wednesday starting at 4:15 p.m. and Thursday from 11:45 a.m. until 1 p.m. for the weekday lunch crowd on the Ross Street Patio.

Surgery has returned to Innisfail Health Centre in the form of cataract operations. Surgeries were last done in Innisfail in 2006. Cataract surgery was originally supposed to be moved from Red Deer to Innisfail in 2011. The intent was to increase the number of high-priority surgeries in Red Deer as part of a $16.7-million plan announced in 2010 to provide more high-priority surgery across the province. Delays in construction, including a construction company going into receivership, postponed the move. Since April 15, three Red Deer ophthalmologists have been working part-time at the Innisfail hospital. “Ophthalmology has been moved from Red Deer Regional Hospital to Innisfail, with the exception of pediatrics and surgeries requiring general anesthetic,” said Cathy McDonald, vice-president Alberta Health Services Central Zone. “It’s had an immediate affect on the availability of surgical time available in Red Deer.” AHS previously reported about 400 more urgent, emergent and elective surgeries could be performed in Red Deer by moving cataract surgery to Innisfail. McDonald said an average of 100 cataract procedures are done per month in Innisfail and a total of 1,200 will be done each year, the same amount that was done in Red Deer. From Jan. 1 to March 31, 90 per cent of people waiting for cataract surgery in AHS Central Zone waited 20.9 weeks for surgery. Cataract surgery is performed as day surgery so it does not require a stay in hospital. The ophthalmology outpatient clinic was also moved to Innisfail for specialized eyerelated procedures that include blepharoplasty, capsulotomy, chalazion removals and diagnostic procedures. Chloe’s album Dedicated State won her the Emerging Artist of the Year award from the Canadian Folk Music Awards in 2008. Her recently released album, Dream Catcher, is in the top 30 on the CKUA charts. From June through September, a different artist or performer will be featured every Wednesday evening on the Ross Street Patio and Thursday over lunchtime. Along with these downtown weekly events, the city is hosting three Patio Parties on the first Friday of July, August, and September, and four Sundays at Bower Ponds with free concerts.

A full chance at being heard RED DEER PUNK TRIO HALF CHANCE HEROES SET TO RELEASE A SUPER-SIZED EP BY LANA MICHELIN ADVOCATE STAFF They’re called the Half Chance Heroes — but they don’t do anything by halves. The Red Deer punk trio is putting out a super-sized EP next month with eight songs on it. Add only a couple tunes more and group members could have turned their Nocturnal Habits EP into a second full-length album, following the band’s debut 2011 CD, Good Intentions, Bad Inventions. But guitarist and lead singer DJ La Grange said he’d rather put out a longish EP that’s loaded with good songs than a short album that includes a few weaker ones. “We were going for quality over quantity. We made the best eight songs we could,” added La Grange of the EP that was created at Calgary’s Echo Base Studio. Fans should notice a more mature sound on the new recording, which will be made available June 22 at an all-ages release party at Red Deer’s Slumland Theatre. As well, La Grange said there’s a stronger hip-hop influence, mixed with some reggae, on the punk pop EP. The hip hop is courtesy of drummer Ryan Schultz, who raps on some tracks. “We thought it would be good to have another element, another voice

in the band,” said Schultz, who was inspired by several U.S. rap groups, including The Palmer Squares and The Roots. He credits his strong sense of rhythm — “and a lot of practise” — for helping nail down the rap parts. Songs include Last December, about looking back and noticing how things can change in a few months, and Dig a Little Deeper, about the frustration of “not being able to achieve the things you want, but knowing that eventually you’re going to get them,” said La Grange. The band plans to shoot a music video for the EP this summer, but the choice of tune hasn’t yet been determined. La Grange admitted the band doesn’t sing much about romance, since “I don’t have a lot of experience with that yet. ... We’re only 20 years old and we’ve got a lot to learn and a lot of growing to do.” But La Grange and Schultz, along with bassist Jordan Little, are committed to their music, so they hope the new EP will demonstrate how much Half Chance Heroes has grown since the musicians graduated from Notre Dame High School in 2010. “I hope more people will take us more seriously as a band when they see what we can produce,” said Schultz. La Grange added, “We want to show people — fans, music producers, bar owners — that this (EP) is a step up


Half Chance Heroes have a super-sized EP ready to release next month, with eight songs on it. from last time. I hope anyone who listens to it will enjoy it.” Besides performing at Slumland Theatre at 4732 Ross St. on Saturday, June 22, the band will also play at the local Canada Day celebration at Bower Ponds on July 1, as well as on the Ross Street Patio with Oldbury on July 5.

Local authors mark 14 years of creative support group BY LANA MICHELIN ADVOCATE STAFF Leslie Greentree feels she’s living in a happy place called “Writer’s World” whenever she can join her fellow Red Deer authors for a glass of wine and some stimulating literary conversation. She and writers Joan Crate, Kimmy Beach and Blaine Newton meet whenever needed to give input on the fictional characters they’ve created, or the finer points of plot and dialogue. They give each other editing tips and occasionally test the waters of their writing and re-writing efforts at public readings. “I call it ‘Living in Writer’s World’ — when you get to hang out with other writers, and hang out with people who love to have writers read to them,” said Greentree (who in the real world, works as an education awareness and marketing specialist for the City of Red Deer’s Community Services Department). “I love to be in Writer’s World. It’s so much fun,” she enthused. That fun will be extended to members of the public at a celebration at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday at Sunworks on Ross Street. The four authors are inviting anyone with a literary bent to drop in, listen to readings of their latest works of poetry and prose, and help mark their “13 plus one” anniversary as a writers’ group. Greentree explained the four actually got together 14 years ago, when she called up some of the local authors on a list provided by the Alberta Writers’ Guild. She had asked the guild for connections after deciding that “writing on my own in a vacuum was terrible.” The writers’ group that’s been a tremendous support for its members never got around to marking its 13th anniversary last year — “and 13 is my favourite number,” Greentree explained. Since “deadlines mean nothing to writers,” she added, group members decided to go ahead and celebrate their 13 plus one anniversary this year. She’s sure literary devotees won’t mind the celebration of “writing, editing and friendship” comes a year later than expected. Greentree plans to read her short story The Room of Pickled Things, which just won the top prize in the

It’s offered annually to international entrants on the website of Toronto author Sarah Selecky (a finalist for the Giller and Commonwealth Prizes) as a way of encouraging emerging short fiction writers. Greentree’s winning short story, which will be published as part of an ebook that can be purchased for $3 from Selecky’s website, was inspired by one of Selecky’s daily writing prompts (“write about picked carrots and supermarket eggs”). The short story is actually less about death than about the hard truths a boy learns about his parents while they are busy arranging his grandfather’s funeral, said Greentree, whose 2004 Go-Go Dancing for Elvis poetry collection was short-listed for the Griffin poetry prize, and whose A Minor Planet for You short stories collection won the Howard O’Hagan Award for Short Fiction in 2007. She always thought death would be an interesting angle from which to examine “what’s going on in the heads of human beings. ... “In North America, we are not very good at dealing with grief,” Greentree concluded. “We have all these half-assed rituals that don’t really do what they

are supposed to do” — such as provide much support or closure for the bereaved. “Sometimes they’re odd, sometimes they’re not helpful, or awkward, these rituals. ...” Newton, a produced playwright and author who is Greentree’s partner in life, as well as a writing buddy, is expected to read from one of his new short stories. Beach, whose latest fictional collection of poetry and prose, The Last Temptation of James Bond, was recently published, may read from that work or a newer work-in-progress, said Greentree. And Crate, a retired RDC writing instructor, who has published several poetry collections, as well as the novel Breathing Water, is also expected to read from her latest projects. Now a Calgary resident, Crate is working on new poetry, and a novel about friction between a female student and a “mother general” at a residential boarding school for aboriginal youths.

BY LINDA BARNARD SPECIAL TO THE ADVOCATE The Internship Two stars (out of four) Rated: PG The Internship is a big wet kiss to Google wrapped in a buddy comedy that asks us to believe that nobody over 40 knows anything about computers or the online universe. Middle-aged salesmen Billy (Vince

Vaughn) and Nick (Owen Wilson) are analogue dudes in a digital world; luxury wristwatch shillers who work the same tag-team roles they used in their last and far more successful onscreen pairing, 2005’s Wedding Crashers. Fired by their boss (John Goodman), these dinosaurs are left to lumber towards unemployment when Nick makes a brief stop to try working at his brother-in-law’s mattress store, run by Will Ferrell in an uncredited cameo and the film’s most amusing scene — and only mildly funny at that.

Inspired by a Google search — the introduction of a film-wide product placement that often hijacks the movie and turns it into a commercial for the pure awesomeness that is all things Google — Billy signs them up for an unpaid internship tryout that he figures will lead to stellar careers. It’s the oldsters vs. the know-it-all nerds on Google’s Mountain View, Calif., campus, where Vaughn and Wilson do their familiar shtick.

Music icon Les Selinger bringing illusion and Paul honoured education show to Red Deer with exhibit in hometown BY ADVOCATE STAFF

WAUKESHA, Wis. — The music icon whose solid-body electric guitar paved the way for rock ’n’ roll is now getting a permanent exhibit in his Wisconsin hometown, after more than a decade in the making. Les Paul, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame musician who performed regularly into his 90s with his band, developed technology and recording techniques that set the standard in the music industry, including tape echo, multitrack recordings and overdubs . There are permanent exhibits devoted to him at other museums, including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland, but he wanted something closer to home. So he loaned the Waukesha County Museum personal items and helped raise funds to make the effort a reality, including writing a personal $25,000 check for expenses and playing a concert to raise $100,000. “I think it’s more personal,” he told The Associated Press in 2004. “It’s going to be the best exhibit of all.” The exhibit, “The Les Paul Experience,” is opening Sunday, which would have been Paul’s 98th birthday. Paul died in 2009. The Waukesha County Museum originally posed the idea to Paul in the 1980s. He finally agreed in 2002, though early leadership changes and fundraising issues caused setbacks. Now, it’s now the most comprehensive account of Paul’s work and influence, said Kirsten Villegas, the museum’s president whose priority when she took over in 2008 was to finish the exhibit. “We really wanted to make sure that people not only learned about who Les Paul was but got an appreciation for the way he lived his life, and then could take his example and hopefully apply it to theirs,” Villegas said. Born Lester William Polfuss in 1915 to a German immigrant family, Paul built his first crystal radio at age 9, about the time he first picked up a guitar. In his early teens, his mother allowed him to leave his home in Waukesha, in the southeast corner of Wisconsin, to travel with a country band. Paul went on to build one of the first prototypes for the solid-body electric guitar in 1941, but his work was rejected numerous times. Gibson Guitar finally began mass-producing a guitar based on his design in 1952, and the electric guitar went on to become the lead instrument in rock ’n’ roll. He devel-

oped technology and recording techniques that influenced music recording at the time like no other. He also earned 36 gold records for hits with his wife Mary Ford including “Vaya Con Dios” and “How High the Moon,” which both hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts. Paul’s right elbow was crushed in a 1948 car crash and doctors set it at an angle so he could continue to play guitar. Almost right until he died, Paul performed every week with the Les Paul Trio at the Iridium Jazz Club in New York City, despite painful arthritis and only being able to use his left thumb and pinkie. He was heavily involved in many projects that featured his career, always stressing an interactive element. Among his many accolades was his induction into the National Inventors Hall of Fame. There also are permanent Les Paul exhibits at Discovery World in Milwaukee and the Mahwah Museum in New Jersey, where Paul lived for many years. But he wanted people to understand that everything started when he was a child in Waukesha, Villegas said. So the local exhibit starts with a re-creation of Paul’s first laboratory: his living room in Waukesha, including his original piano. It goes on to highlight how his mother supported and influenced him, his time with his wife, his car accident, his inventions, and the many rock stars he influenced along the way. There’s a wall of mock guitars that people can wave their hand over and get an idea of how his different attempts at an electric guitar sounded. There also will be an area where people can write their dreams on a piece of paper and tack it to a wall. Paul’s music will be played and quotations from his life are featured throughout. Among the items on display are his first professional acoustic guitar, a 1927 Gibson L-5 Sunburst Cremona; large wood sound panels Paul carved that used to be on the walls of his home studio; and the “Paulverizer,” a switch Paul built to remotely control tape machines hidden offstage. The switch enabled him to play along with a selection of pre-recorded backing tracks. Paul’s son, Rusty Paul said his dad wanted a permanent exhibit to reach the generations who don’t know him.

MOVIES: Ridiculous back and forth, but not neary enough of it It’s Slick Willy and the Butterscotch Stallion. Except Vaughn’s northward-creeping hairline and Wilson’s evolution from stallion to lovable sheepdog demonstrates that the times they are a-changin’. It’s good to see these two back together onscreen offering their brand of ridiculous back and forth — say, on the merits of using Alanis Morissette on a motivational music mix — reminding us of the chemistry they have when the stars properly align. But these are rare events. More often we see them dispensing enthusiastic advice and wacky metaphors and crowing about the free food, nap pods and general awesomeness on tap at Google central. Hooked up with the unloved of the campus and toiling under the thumb of humour-deficient Google taskmaster Mr. Chetty (Daily Show correspondent Aasif Mandvi), the groups are assigned team-building challenges in a race for a handful of coveted jobs. The world is a different place than the free-forall that awaited graduating boomers, the earnest techies inform the oldsters. College grads swarm the few jobs that pop up, as embodied in this contest by weaselly Graham (Max Minghella, from the Internet flick that stands as the polar opposite of this frothy effort: The Social Network). Attempts to add some sort of tension to this predictable farce are so out of place as to be ridiculous. Billy’s fixation (ad nauseam) with Flashdance gets old very fast. A game of Quidditch replaces the triedand-true football metaphor, but what’s with the trip to a strip club where the interns are introduced to G-rated debauchery that would be at home on the Disney Channel? We fear it’s only a matter of time before Billy starts with Vaughn’s trademark efforts to nail everything in sight when he has a sunrise heart-to-heart with a saucy 20-something intern (Tiya Sircar). Instead he and Nick ladle out folksy wisdom and plenty of BS in their attempts to maximize the team’s “Googliness.” Romance is wisely left to Nick, whose attempts to woo Aussie Google exec Dana (Rose Byrne) leads to a charming restaurant scene that shows Wilson’s still got it. With a script penned by Vaughn — who came up with the idea after seeing a 60 Minutes segment on Google HQ’s workplace Nirvana — and Jared Stern


Owen Wilson, right, and Vince Vaughn in a scene from The Internship. (The Watch, Mr. Popper’s Penguins), and vanilla direction by Montreal’s Shawn Levy (Date Night, Night at the Museum franchise), The Internship gets more indulgent chuckles than outright laughter. “You’re too young to be this cynical,” Nick tells one of the young interns. I’m not. The Internship is a disappointing comedy masquerading as a Google ad, the kind of thing a certain generation might have described as selling out.

When Derek Selinger discovered his mom had been “electrocuted” while he was still in utero, his first thought was that he was born with superpowers. (Well, he was only eight when he learned this fascinating tidbit.) His second realization was that “life is a gift ... an awesome and miraculous event.” And this is still the message that Selinger — now a master illusionist and inspirational speaker — tries to pass on to others through a stage act that uses storytelling and illusion as context for messages about resiliency and empowerment. Selinger’s Wonder will be performed Friday and Saturday, June 14 and 15, at the Memorial Centre as a fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Red Deer and District. The entertainer and educator, who has performed his “exhilarating” feats of “mind reading and magic” in New York, Las Vegas, Malaysia and Paris, promises to also educate on topics such as bullying, making important choices, and living life to the fullest. “I make the point that helping others make the most of their gift is equally important,” said Selinger, who aims to equip audience members with practical and specific concepts. The conversation at the Memorial Centre will flow both ways, with the illusionist taking questions from the crowd. Selinger is a college graduate, and former basketball player and coach, who spent years as an advisor in post-secondary education. He was exposed to mentors and teachers who helped him craft his “mesmerizing” stage act as an illusionist, which has drawn raves, awards, and also TV spots on the Discovery network, Fox News, CTV and Global. Audience members are invited to “relax, laugh and enjoy” Selinger’s Wonder — and at the same time, “discover what your perceptions are as experience and reality collide.” Tickets for the 7 p.m. show are $31.85 from the Black Knight Ticket Centre.

MAN ARRESTED AFTER THREATS MADE TO OILSANDS FACILITY FORT MCMURRAY — A British Columbia man has been charged after threats were made against an oilsands facility in northern Alberta. An investigation began Tuesday north of Fort McMurray after police received a tip on a 911 line, said RCMP Const. Christina Wilkins. “We received threats that there were harmful substances,” Wilkins said, although she couldn’t provide details of what kind of substances were mentioned or the nature of the threats. She said resources from outside detachments including police dogs, explosive teams and the RCMP’s Integrated National Security Enforcement Team were called in to help with the investigation. Wilkins says no harmful substances of any kind have been recovered. Police can’t confirm the existence of any explosive device or any material that would endanger the public. Lance Huntington, 49, of Kamloops, B.C., has been charged with uttering threats and uttering false messages. He is to appear in court June 19 in Hinton, Alta.

SCOTIABANK SEES RISK OF SINGLE-DIGIT CUT IN REAL ESTATE PRICES Canadian housing prices are at risk of falling over the next few years, driven by global economic weakness and softness in key condo markets, a Scotiabank economist said Friday. Adrienne Warren said a singledigit decrease by middecade would represent a soft landing that many observers have predicted. “There is some risk that single family home prices could fall but we see more risk on the condo market,” she said in an interview. Toronto prices have already flattened and Vancouver prices have fallen by five per cent, a better outcome than predicted. While average Canadian real estate prices would be affected by the country’s two most expensive markets, prices in most other areas of the country are relatively stable. — The Canadian Press

West-east pipeline touted BY THE CANADIAN PRESS SAINT JOHN, N.B. — Alberta Premier Alison Redford stepped up her efforts to promote a proposal to ship oil to the East Coast, saying Canada needs the project to go ahead to improve access to lucrative markets abroad. Redford spent Friday touring New Brunswick, where she found a receptive ear to a development that could see crude shipped from her province’s oilsands as far east as Saint John. She said she wasn’t concerned about environmental opposition to the construction of pipelines, an issue that has dogged the Northern Gateway and Keystone XL pipeline proposals in recent months. “We face these challenges all the time, whether we’re talking about a pipeline or shale gas development or building a road or building a hospital,” she said alongside Premier David Alward after delivering a speech to the New Brunswick legislature in Fredericton. “But at the end of the day, the other choices we have to make are about whether or not we’re going to be able to continue to fund a public health care system, a public

education system, to be able to continue to invest in wonderful universities to educate generations to come and to diversify our economy. “My only point is that it’s not an eitheror conversation. We’ve always done a very good job in Canada of being able to balance those interests and I think we can continue to do that.” She said one reason why the project should go ahead is because Alberta’s lack of direct access to a coastal shipping route contributed to a $6 billion slide in her province’s revenues this year. Redford later travelled to the port city of Saint John to deliver her pro-pipeline message at the local board of trade. Eric Poirier, chairman of the Saint John Board of Trade, said the development would be welcome. “This is a Canadian story,” he said. “This is something that will advance a national energy strategy that will bring benefits for the whole country.” TransCanada Corp. (TSX:TRP) is considering to convert an existing 3,000-kilometre natural gas pipeline to carry crude into Quebec, with the possibility of a 1,400-kilometre extension to Saint John.

The Calgary-based company has set a deadline of June 17 to accept binding commitments from oil producers before determining whether to proceed with the development, known as the Energy East Pipeline project. It says if the development proceeds, it could begin shipping as much as 850,000 barrels of oil per day in late 2017. Alward said he is confident the proposal can stand on merit, adding that it would create thousands of jobs during construction and greatly benefit his province’s economy. Following Redford’s visit to the Saint John Board of Trade, she and Alward hopped aboard a helicopter to tour the Irving Oil refinery, the country’s largest, and the deepwater port facilities in Saint John where the pipeline could ultimately end. Paul Browning, president of Irving Oil, said his company would be interested in refining Alberta oil. He said the company could consider revisiting plans to expand the refinery. “I think Canada needs us to increase our capability here, and a pipeline that concludes in Saint John greatly increases the probability that will be a great investment for us in the future,” he said.

Nova launches expansion work EXPANSION EXPECTED TO BOOST ANNUAL POLYETHYLENE OUTPUT TO ABOUT 3.5 BILLION POUNDS BY HARLEY RICHARDS ADVOCATE BUSINESS EDITOR The current billion-dollar expansion of Nova Chemicals Corp.’s polyethylene facilities at Joffre would have seemed improbable five years ago, says the petrochemical company’s CEO. Speaking at the official launch of WETLAND SAVED C6 the construction project on Friday, Randy Woelfel reflected on the state of the industry in 2008. Natural gas production in Alberta was in steep decline, which meant the supply of ethane — the chemical compound that is stripped from natural gas and used to produce ethylene and ultimately polyethylene — was also dropping. “The outlook looking forward was pretty bleak,” he said, recalling how ethane supplies fell 12 per cent in 2008, followed by a further 3 ½ per cent slide in 2009 and 10 per cent in 2010. With Nova’s polyethylene plants forced to run at 85 per cent capacity, the economic future of the company and its employees was uncertain. But between that time and this spring, when Nova’s board of directors authorized funding for the addition of a third reactor to the company’s polyethylene 1 plant, new sources of ethane were secured, said Woelfel. Those new sources have included offgases from oilsands upgrading, and ethane from the Bakken shale formations in North Dakota and other areas. “We’ve put in place some actions that really profoundly have changed the future of our company,” said Woelfel. “We’re going to be able to run what we have here full by the end of this year.” Not only that, but the expansion of Nova’s facilities is expected to boost its annual polyethylene output to about 3.5 billion pounds from the current 2.5 billion pounds. Woelfel said much of the credit for the improved feedstock supplies belongs to the Alberta government and its incremental ethane extraction policy, which provides financial incentives for investment in ethane extraction facilities. “It was really a vital component.” Woelfel expressed confidence that Nova’s ethane requirements can now be met for many years to come. And he pointed out that North American demand for polyethylene, which is used to make products ranging from plastic bottle caps and toys to food packaging and bags, is currently strong. New polyethylene production is planned for the United States Gulf Coast, acknowledged Woelfel, with companies there eager to capitalize on the cheap ethane prices that have resulted from an abundance of natural gas flowing from shale formations there. In fact, he said,

Nova Chemicals Corp. CEO Randy Woelfel, right, chats with Alberta Energy Minister Ken Hughes in front of Nova’s existing polyethylene facilities at Joffre on Friday. ethane is currently three to four cents a pound cheaper for Gulf Coast petrochemical plants than it is for Nova in Alberta. “We think that’s a short-term phenomenon,” said Woelfel. “Our view is long term. We still think it will be competitive, Alberta versus the Gulf Coast.” The Joffre plants, he continued, also stack up well against competitors in the Middle East, which have traditionally enjoyed the lowest feedstock costs. Hughes said Nova’s current expansion, and the development of a petrochemical industry in Alberta nearly 40 years ago, are shining examples of how creative government policies can take advantage of market opportunities and create an attractive environment for business. A comparison could be made, he added, between Alberta’s petrochemical industry and the value-added opportunities that now exist with respect to the refining of crude oil and bitumen. “We’re open to those kinds of initiatives,” said Hughes, pointing to the province’s bitumen royalty-in-kind (BRIK) program — under which it collects royalties as

raw bitumen that can be directed to specific refining projects — as a policy tool that can encourage such development. With initial work already underway, Nova’s polyethylene 1 expansion project is expected to utilize an average of 250 tradespeople between now and its anticipated completion in the fall of 2015. The number will peak at around 600 late next year and into 2015. In addition to the installation of a third polyethylene reactor, the project will involve the construction of another flare stack and cooling tower, a new electricity substation, expanded rail yards and other infrastructure. More than 100 Nova officials and invited guest attended Friday’s ceremony, which was held in a polyethylene warehouse at Joffre. Those in attendance included Diana McQueen, minister of Environment and Sustainable Resource Development; Cal Dallas, minister of International and Intergovernmental Relations; and other provincial, federal and municipal politicians.

Canada releases list of U.S. products that could face tariffs BY THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER — Ottawa is warning it may impose tariffs on everything from orange juice to bread if the United States doesn’t change a meat-labelling policy that Canadian beef and pork industries say is costing them more than $1 billion a year. The federal government has released a long list of agriculture and other products that could be affected by Canada’s retaliation in an ongoing dispute over U.S. country-of-origin, meat-labelling rules. Canada’s list includes U.S. cattle, pigs, beef, pork, cheese, pasta, some fruits and vegetables, chocolate and maple syrup. There are also some non-food items such as office furniture, mattresses and some types of jewelry. “Free and unfettered trade is a two-way street,” Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz said at a news conference Friday. “These

retaliatory measures, should we be forced to bring them into effect, will affect our producers and consumers on both sides of the border. “It is by no means our preferred course of action, but we will continue to stand with Canadian hog and cattle producers against mandatory country-of-origin labelling.” Ritz said if Canada follows through with the retaliatory measures, it would cost the U.S. money and jobs. He acknowledged such tariffs could also mean that Canadian consumers would have to pay more for the products. “There is a possibility of that,” he said. “We are hoping that this will bring enough pressure to the Americans to make the change before this ever has to be implemented.” Ritz called on the U.S. to respect a World Trade Organization ruling on meat labelling, which found the American system discriminates against foreign livestock.

He said Canada must get authorization from the WTO before it may retaliate against the U.S. The earliest that such tariffs could be imposed would be between 18 and 24 months. The U.S. labelling policy, first implemented in 2008, cut Canadian cattle shipments to the U.S. by 50 per cent within a year and cut the export of slaughter hogs by 58 per cent. The system increases costs and makes it more difficult for U.S. companies to buy Canadian products. The U.S. recently announced it wants to make the rules even more onerous, requiring more detail on meat labels on the origins of beef, pork and chicken sold in American grocery stores. Labels would include such information as “born, raised and slaughtered in the United States” for American meat.

MARKETS CLOSE TORONTO — Gold and base metal stocks pushed the Toronto stock market lower amid stronger-than-expected job creation numbers in Canada and U.S. for May. The S&P/TSX composite index closed down 36.04 points to 12,373.3, with the market finding support from most non-resource sectors. Statistics Canada reported 95,000 jobs were created in May, most of them full-time positions. Also, the unemployment rate moved down to 7.1 per cent from 7.2 per cent. Economists had expected job creation somewhere in the neighbourhood of 15,000 last month. The Canadian dollar was off early highs but still up 0.59 of a cent to 98.06 cents US following the report. U.S. indexes advanced, but were also off session highs as traders also took in a strongerthan expected read on American employment last month. The Dow Jones industrials jumped 207.5 points to 15,248.12 as the U.S. Labor Department said that 175,000 jobs were created during May. The expectation had been the U.S. economy would crank

out about 165,000 additional jobs during May. The Nasdaq composite index was ahead 45.16 points to 3,469.22 while the S&P 500 index rose 20.82 points to 1,643.38. Traders hoped the jobs data wasn’t strong enough to persuade the Federal Reserve to start tapering its bond purchases. The quantitative easing program has kept interest rates low and also helped fuel a strong rally on stock markets this year, leaving the Dow industrials up a good 16 per cent year to date. The Dow gained 0.87 per cent this past week while the TSX shrank 2.14 per cent, leaving the main index down about 60 points year to date. Markets have been volatile over the past couple of weeks after Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke said the U.S. central bank might pull back on its $85 billiona-month bond-buying program if economic data, especially hiring, improved significantly. Other Fed officials have spoken about a winding down of asset purchases sooner. “This market has been very hooked on QE and is very susceptible to a withdrawal, obviously,” said Sid Mokhtari, mar-

Jobless rates edges downwards Unemployment in the Red Deer region edged downward to 6.1 per cent in May, reversing a fourmonth climb that peaked at 6.2 per cent in April.

Wetland saved Not all of Nova Chemicals Corp.’s expansion project at Joffre will involve concrete and steal. The company also plans to preserve a wetlands area, and add trails. “We’re going to basically enhance and extend that wetlands area,” said Nova CEO Randy Woelfel. “We’re going to develop and implement picnic and other visitation areas, as well as a nature trail throughout, and basically make that available for use by the community, as well as our own employees.” Expected to encompass as much as 220 acres, the Community Nature Trail will have three to five km of trails, as well as bridge crossings and interpretive signage. The site is north of Nova’s petrochemical complex, and east of the rail yards that serve the plants there. In addition to supplying the land, Nova expects to spend about $150,000 on the project. Work is expected to begin this fall and wrap up next year.

So it’s natural for the market to feel that withdrawal or even the assumption of that kind of withdrawal.” Meanwhile, the gold sector was the leading TSX decliner Friday, down about five per cent as the August gold contract price fell $32.80 to US$1,383.10 an ounce. Gold has fallen sharply since hitting a record high of US$1,921 in early September 2011 at a time when massive stimulus measures by central banks raised worries about a sharp spike in inflation. “Gold was almost to some extent a fear trade, it was almost an inflationary trade,” Mokhtari said. “We don’t have necessarily inflation assumptions right now. Down the road maybe, but not now.” Barrick Gold Corp. (TSX:ABX) lost $1.07 to C$20.60 while Goldcorp Inc. (TSX:G) fell $1.55 to $29.09. The base metal group was

Cuts of meat from other countries could carry labels such as “born in Canada, raised and slaughtered in the United States.” Producer groups in Canada praised the federal government for turning up the heat on Washington over the trade dispute. Dave Solverson, vice-president of the Canadian Cattleman’s Association, said it is unfortunate that Ottawa has to take this step, but added that producers have been suffering under this U.S. policy for too long. “Country-of-origin labelling discrimination has cost our cattle producers around $640 million in losses per year since being implemented in late 2008,” said Solverson, who ranches near Camrose, Alta. “Those costs are set to rise under the new amendment to an estimated $90 to $100 per head compared with the $25 to $40 per head hit we currently take.”

This two-tiered backyard deck includes a simple set of boards that create the impression of a roof. Climbing plants would add lots of shade in summer.

our enthusiasm. For we have rooms to decorate. A bunkie to build. Landscaping to tackle. A woodstrip canoe to buy. A canoe? Yup, its procurement, you see, is an ongoing fascination. Actually, make that an ongoing obsession. Since moving to Canada several years past, we’ve harboured a notion to paddle across a glassy lake in a woodstrip antique craft. As chance would have it, we’ve come a

step nearer that dream having just bought (for an astonishing ten bucks) an antique wooden oar from Habitat for Humanity Restore. You may have seen the erstwhile paddle featured on Cityline last Thursday, but the vessel itself remains on our ‘to buy’ list. Ground maintenance, you see, along with glazing, fence building and a new dock are priorities as far as economics are concerned.

We opine with a degree of trepidation (for fear of jinxing Mother Nature) that spring is being dragged — kicking and screaming — toward summer. That said, where the barometric scale is concerned, nothing is certain. So we ain’t pulling on our Speedos quite yet. Perish the thought. Weather observations aside, we anticipate a wonderful summer in Muskoka as our cottage dream gathers momentum. Not even the prospect of congested highways, cranky builders or blackflies will curb

COTTAGE: Transformation The canoe, sadly, will just have to wait. Already confirmed cottagers, just five months into ownership, we’re in a state of frenzy as the prospect of a lakeside summer rolls forward. Our Muskokan odyssey, however, will be more about hard work than it will R&R, shaded by towering pines and silver birch. Yup, there is serious work to be done as we champion the transformation of our simple log cabin. God only knows what lies ahead. What have we let ourselves in for? Will our plans go to, erm, plan? Or will it transpire we’ve bitten off more than we can chew? It’s fair to say we’re about to find out. Like many other cottagers, we know that a legion of important tasks must be undertaken in preparation for the next season. If your cottage is winterized, the job list will probably be smaller but, if your home away from home is more of a two- or a three-season space, then your time will be more busily consumed. Worry not, we shall return to this point in a moment. For now, allow us to set the scene. A couple of months back, while headlining the Spring Cottage Life Show in Toronto, we had the good fortune to meet Penny Caldwell, editor of Cottage Life magazine. A busy media professional, Penny’s glossy title covers every aspect of cottaging from buying, selling and renting, to planning, decorating and entertaining. For this reason, Cottage Life has become a go-to title for anyone even remotely interested in owning — or renting — a lovely vacation home. Ahead of spending summer at the lake, we caught up again this week with Penny and asked that she compose a ‘must do’ hit list to help us — and Star readers — prepare for the coming months. Her no-nonsense approach is compelling and her advice makes informative reading. “Spring is a fantastic time for cottagers,” she explains. “We’ve spent the winter making lists and planning projects, and now we’re ready to put it all into practice as the beautiful summer stretches ahead.” Pausing, for a moment, she adds; “Sure, there’s lots to be done but it’s all about balance. “The trick is to stay on top of everything before problems arise. That way you can kick back and relax with family and friends and properly enjoy the summer.” Aspects to consider as you prepare to open your cottage:

Monitor Penny suggests a preliminary walk-around to observe any aspects that need attention. “Look for overhanging branches, especially around your cottage, as these can pose a fire hazard. And check for squirrel holes or entrance points by other animals.” She continues: “When you arrive for the first time, check for and replace broken windows. And be on the lookout for loose deck boards, missing roof shingles, and general wear and tear that could become problematic if left unattended.”

burnt out, necessitating a complete — and costly — replacement. So be warned.

choose tubes that measure 8 inches or less, or rent a post hole auger that bores holes larger than 8 in.

The inside scoop

Foundation posts make great railings

While we’ve been lucky enough to avoid mice, other pals have been less fortunate. This in mind, the editor’s tips make perfect sense. “After long periods away, check for signs of infestation such as droppings in your larder or around the floor. Disinfect counters and dishes and check your stove for nests before turning on.” Penny suggests setting traps or using warfarin, but only if you don’t have kids or pets. “Finally, plug holes with steel wool where pipes exit your cottage. It’s almost impossible for mice to break through this.”

Regardless of how your deck posts are supported, don’t make the common mistake of cutting the posts off flush with the deck surface, only to have to fasten new wood to the deck frame later to act as a railing. Far better to extend the support posts high enough to act as the main support for hand rails, base rails and whatever spindles you’ll fasten between them. This approach works especially well with posts supported on concrete piers.

Restock pantry and medicine cabinet “Discard any food stuffs that show rodent or bug infestation,” Penny instructs, “though this will be less likely if perishables were stored in tins or glass jars in the first place. This done, turn your attention to your medicine cabinet. Make sure you’ve got calamine lotion, sun screen, bug spray and other general items such as aloe and antihistamine.” Our chat drawing to its conclusion, Penny suggests (perhaps reading our mind and sensing concern) that we don’t become so wrapped up in panic we actually forget to enjoy our exciting new adventure. “In most cases,” she muses, “cottagers have little to fear. And besides, a spot of sensible planning goes a long way. When you’ve ticked off all my points, make time to relax. Set out the deck furniture, grab a beverage and put your feet up.” We certainly appreciate Penny’s summation, especially the beverage aspect. But before cracking open the vino, there is work to be done. No, wait a minute — scratch that. A chilled glass of Pinot might be just the fellow to help us concentrate. Penny’s words still ringing in our ears, we reach for the corkscrew and prepare to prioritize our workload. As we said, there is much to be done . . .

Doubled floor joists Whenever the ends of two deck boards meet over a single joist, you’ve got two problems. Besides the fact that rot-promoting moisture gets trapped between the two end-grain surfaces, you’re also forced to drive screws close enough to the ends of deck boards that the wood often splits. Doubling up floor joists in those places where deck board joints land solves both these problems. It takes a bit of planning to figure out which lengths of deck boards you need to buy, and where the joints will occur to minimize waste, but the effort is worth it. Leave 1’ of space between each pair of double joists, and ¼’ of space between deck board ends that land on top. You’re now free to drive screws a full 1’ from the ends of deck boards, with no chance of splitting. The space between deck board ends also encourages rapid drying and long wood life.

Add a verandah roof If you’re going to the trouble of building a deck, turning it into a verandah by adding a simple, open roof adds a lot of value. I know because I live with one. A shady spot for kids, a place to barbecue in bad weather, a spot to sit still and listen to a gentle rain in summer, and extended life for doors and windows — these are some verandah advantages. The simplest way to turn your deck project into a verandah is by extending support posts high enough to hold up a roof. You’ll find 6x6s work best here, both aesthetically and structurally. Cut tenons on the top of these posts, then create horizontal beams that connect the posts using four 2x8s, routed and bolted together. The difference between a good deck and a bad deck usually boils down to a handful of details that don’t make it to reality often enough. Work them into your next deck and they’ll pay off for years. Steve Maxwell, syndicated home improvement and woodworking columnist, has shared his DIY tips, how-to videos and product reviews since 1988. Send questions to

Take stock of your dock “Reposition your dock and ensure it’s properly anchored,” Penny counsels. “It’s also important,” she adds, “to re-position and replace flotation if required. Be on the lookout for missing hardware items like dock rings and cleats. Ignoring aspects such as these will only create problems further down the line.”

Penny’s next port of call is cottage water supply. “Reconnect pipes, then prime and start your water pump.” On a cautionary note she adds: “Don’t forget to fill the hot water tank before turning it on.” This point seems particularly relevant; a lakeside neighbour told us recently that, because he’d neglected to fill his tank at the start of the season, it

Flea market fix-ups I have always been a flea market junky. The sidewalk sales, the old curio shops, and demolition sites pull me in wherever I am, at home or on my travels. In her new book, Paris Flea Market Style, Claudia Strasser has a beautiful way of getting to the core of why the old and the discarded hold such an important place in our hearts. “We relish finding things of beauty, whether in artwork, lace, or an industrial remnant. And we want to have those things close to us in our homes. On tattered tables are memories and precious reminders of what we were and what we are, what we value and what we have lost.” DEBBIE Strasser takes us on a fascinating tour of her favourite TRAVIS flea market haunts in Paris, where she spends days seeking out treasures for her business and herself. From Clignancourt, a maze of 14 different markets that spread out along alleyways, to Vanves, the quintessential French flea market, with loads of eye candy that will fit in your suitcase; from March D’Aligre in the heart of Paris, which is set up and broken down each day, to Georges Brassens Old Book Market, a covered arcade that overflows with precious leather-bound volumes, mostly in French, there is nothing you can’t find if you take the time to search and discover. This book is for lovers of French décor, whether you have a passion for Napoleon III, Louis XV, Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Moderne, and would love to have even a single piece that would recreate the spirit of that time in your home. However, while guiding us through these sites with their jumble of treasures, Brassen inspires us with the multitude of ways that old pieces from any era and any country can be reinvented and refreshed for new life in a new place.

MARKETS: From old to new Old chairs may have been stripped of their worn-out stuffing and fabric, but if you like the design of the frame, it is easy to re-stain or paint, and reupholster with new fabric that fits the age and style. A great way to add French flair to your home is to look for mantel mirrors, once mounted over Paris apartment fireplaces, found in every style from Louis XVI to Belle Epoque. The carved details on mirrors and other old frames large and small make these pieces special and worthy of giving new life. Doors can be decorated with panache to revive a style with push plates, decorative handles, keyholes and hinges that have been artfully constructed and are ready to be cleaned up and re-used. On a larger scale, old wardrobes may not be in demand as they once were with present day built-in storage, but the magnificent carved doors can be used in inventive ways as wall panels, headboards, tabletops, or even on a garden gate.

Columns and fragments from old building sites are precious relics that add charm to modern day entranceways, gardens, or interiors. A detailed mantel will transform any room and can surround updated fireplaces with ancient style. Lighting just keeps getting better, but the old fashioned chandeliers and sconces hold a special place in today’s décor. If you are lucky enough to unearth pendants or chandeliers, sconces or candlesticks, don’t worry about their slightly tattered appearance. These relics can be restrung, cleaned up and rewired saving the original finery while updating for another life in today’s home. Lampshades are true jewels, but often fabric has decayed. Use photos of old designs to recreate the look with fabric, beading and fringes. Take a trip to Paris or a bike ride along a nearby country road and discover some history to add ageless style to your home.

Health Canada says kids under 12 should avoid codeine meds BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — Health Canada says children under the age of 12 should not be given codeine-based medication. That means prescription pain drugs and cough syrups containing codeine should not be used in this age group. The department says the decision is based on the fact that serious side effects and deaths have occurred in children who have taken codeine drugs or in babies who get codeine through breast milk. Health Canada says the events are very rare. The body converts codeine into morphine, but in some people that process happens very quickly; they are called ultra-rapid metabolizers. Because they convert the drug so quickly, these people can actually have an unexpected overdose of morphine. As well, there are other serious side-effects seen in children taking codeine, Health Canada says. For instance, surgery to remove tonsils may increase the risk of known codeine side-effects such as the slowing of breathing. Symptoms of a toxic reaction to codeine or other opioid drugs include dizziness, confusion, extreme sleepiness, or sudden shortness of breath or difficulty breathing. People who experience difficulty breathing should seek immediate medical care, the department’s statement says. Health-care professionals and consumers should seek alternatives to codeine for the management of mild to moderate pain or cough in children less than 12 years of age. In 2008, Health Canada informed health-care professionals and the public of the risk to nursing infants whose mothers are ultra-rapid metabolizers of codeine. At the time, the drug labels of prescription and non-prescription products containing codeine were updated to highlight this risk. In addition, the labelling advises caution regarding the use of codeine in any patients with breathing conditions, including children. Health Canada says non-prescription products containing codeine are already labelled to make it clear they should not be used by children.

Your husband may even have had a small stroke or other trauma. Return with him to his doctor and insist on more tests. If his doctor is unwilling to consider other possibilities, it’s time to find a physician who will take your complaints seriously. Please don’t wait. Dear Annie: “Not Anti-Social or Addicted to the Internet” is correct that it’s difficult for men to make new friends outside of the workplace. Here’s my strategy: Before attending an event that interests me, I do some research and identify nearby coffee shops and also look up similar events happening in the near future. Then I make a point of talking to several strangers. If anyone seems interesting, I’ll invite that person to meet at the nearby coffee shop to continue the conversation. If he’s not available, I’ll ask whether he’s planning to attend the future event, because it might be fun to get together there. — Daniel Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

The evolving hymnal, the tie that binds There was a time when the faithful in the heavily Dutch corners of the Midwest United States would not have been able to sing along if the organist played the gospel classic, Precious Lord, Take My Hand. True, some may have recognized the hymn that Mahalia Jackson sang at the 1968 funeral of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., since this was the civil-rights leader’s favourite: “Precious Lord, take my hand, lead me on, let me stand. I am tired, I am weak, I am worn. Through the storm, through the night, lead me on to the light. Take my hand, precious Lord, lead me home.� But, by 1987 this beloved TERRY African-American spiritual MATTINGLY had been added to the Christian Reformed Church hymnal. A generation later, it has achieved the kind of stature that puts it in the core of the “In Death and Dying� pages of the church’s new Lift Up Your Hearts hymnal. “When you’re creating a new hymnal, you know that you have to retain all those heart songs that just can’t go away,� said the Rev. Joyce Borger, editor of the 1,104-page volume, produced in collaboration with the Reformed Church in America. “We’re talking about the hymns that you cannot imagine living without, and Precious Lord, Take My Hand certainly falls into that category now. It has become one of our songs.� Research indicates that the average church may have “a repertoire� of 150-plus hymns — not counting Christmas carols and seasonal songs — that worship leaders can list in the Sunday bulletin and know that most people will sing them with confidence. The challenge facing teams that create hymnals is that “core songs� will vary radically from flock

to flock, depending on where they are located, the dominant age groups in the pews and the cultural backgrounds of the worship leaders. The favorite-hymn list of a Second World Wargeneration pianist from rural Michigan will overlap some, but not much, with that of a Generation X guitarist in urban Detroit. Also, while it’s impossible to ignore classics from the Dutch Reformed tradition, Borger said that Lift Up Your Hearts also needed to acknowledge the growing diversity found in today’s churches, in North America and worldwide. In the age of increased contact between believers around the world — not to mention YouTube— it’s common for suburban American teens to return from church trips to Africa or South America with notebooks full of new hymns they now cherish. Then there is the surging popularity of pop-rock “praise choruses.� Those choruses rise and fall in popularity from year to year, if not month to month. Also, the larger the modern church sanctuary, the more likely it is to feature video screens on which lyrics are constantly streamed into view. Why would digital worshippers want to tie up their hands with analog hymnals? The pace of musical change is one reason hymnals are now being re-created every generation, as opposed to remaining intact for a half a century or so as in the past, said historian John Witvliet. He is another member of the Lift Up Your Hearts team and who leads the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Mich. Recent decades have seen a number of other factors that have caused musical earthquakes, he said, including a multimedia revolution in worship facilities, the global surge of Pentecostalism, the rise of “megachurch� congregations driven by “seeker-friendly� services that value relevance over tradition and increased ecumenical contacts between Catholic, evangelical and liberal Protes-


tant churches. Thus, the 965 numbered selections in this new hymnal include 137 selections from its 1957 counterpart and 302 from a 1987 volume. However, it also includes at least 100 contemporary “praise choruses� and 50-plus hymns from around the world, with texts translated from 30 different languages. Every hymn in the book is annotated with guitar chords. “There is no period of time in church history — ever — in which there have been this many waves of change shaping Christian worship at the same time,� said Witvliet. “A generation ago, we assumed that the hymnal in the pew WAS a church’s musical repertoire. No one assumes that now.� But no matter how rapid the changes, he added, hymnals are symbols that the “church needs a common body of music to help keep it united. There must be some ties that bind.� Terry Mattingly directs the Washington Journalism Center at the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities. Contact him at or www.

In Memoriam

FALARDEAU Leo Joseph Leo Joseph Falardeau, 81, of Red Deer, Alberta, passed away Monday, June 3, 2013 surrounded by family. Leo was born December 12, 1931 in Saint-Eugène-de-Guigues, Quebec to Wilbrod and Bernadette Falardeau. On November 13, 1952, he married the love of his life, Lucille Gertrude LaPointe, and was married for fifty years. Leo enjoyed a lengthy career as a Salesman with Kraft Foods and was the recipient of numerous awards such as the Hall of Fame award in 1966. Subsequently, he embarked on a very successful entrepreneurial career in real estate in and around the Red Deer area. Leo took immense pride in everything he undertook, and had a passion for perfection, and an eye for detail. He was a self-made man who prided himself in his innate ability to fix anything. One of his passions was “tinkering” at his apartment buildings. Leo is survived by his son, Darcy and his wife Linda of Airdrie, Alberta, his grandson Jay and girlfriend Christina of Red Deer, Alberta; and his daughter, Angela and her husband, Guy of Calgary, Alberta. Leo is also survived by two brothers, Laurent and his wife Vivian of Grand Bend, Ontario, and Emile and his wife Denise of Sainte-Therese, Montreal; and two sisters, Brigitte and her husband Leo-Paul of Sturgeon Falls, Ontario and Nicole and her husband Robert of Quebec City, Quebec. Leo was a loving father, husband, grandfather, and friend to all. He will be missed by all. Leo was predeceased by his parents Wilbrod and Bernadette Falardeau; 4 brothers, Alcide, Yvon, Fernand, and Maurice; and his loving wife Lucille in 2002. A special thank you to the nurses of the Red Deer Regional Hospital Cardiac Unit 22 for their loving care and support. Leo established a scholarship fund in 2002 in memoriam of his late wife Lucille of which he was particularly proud. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent directly to the Red Deer Regional Health Foundation for the Leo J. Falardeau Scholarship at 3942 - 50A Avenue, Red Deer, Alberta, T4N 4E7. Condolences may be forwarded to the family by visiting Arrangements entrusted to RED DEER FUNERAL HOME & CREMATORIUM 6150 - 67 Street, Red Deer. Phone (403) 347-3319
