Weekend festivities a big hit

Celebrating diversity

BY CRYSTAL RHYNO ADVOCATE STAFF Red Deer’s Centennial Homecoming Weekend was pulled off with only a few minor glitches. While a thunder and lightning storm stopped Saturday’s outdoor movie, Leslee Burton, Red Deer 2013 Centennial events chairperson, said the weekend went relatively smoothly. Earlier in the week, the committee was scrambling to find alternate locations for the weekend’s activities because of the flooding damage at Great Chief Park and Bower Ponds. The highly anticipated River of Light production had to be revamped to make a statement on land. The original vision included a finale of illuminated rain barrels floating on the Red Deer River from Fort Normandeau to Three Mile Bend. The U.K. based Creatmosphere team worked their magic and created a new show on Fort Normandeau grounds. Burton said more than 3,000 people went out to Fort Normandeau on Sunday night. Burton said the good team of volunteers allowed them to bring things together. “We are pretty pleased,” said Burton. “It turned out to be a good weekend. Some people might be feeling they missed out.” Red Deer couple Rob and Melva Mabbott were impressed with the amount of work put into the festival weekend. The Mabbotts enjoyed the pancake breakfast, the barbecue and the light installation at Fort Normandeau. Rob said the team did a good job at relocating the events to various parts of the city. Melva said it was disappointing the barrels down the river but she was impressed with the production on land. The couple said they didn’t mind taking the packed shuttle buses from Crossroads Church. “It was very nice,” said Melva. “It was a beautiful setting. The lights in the barrels were very nice.” Other events including the pancake breakfast, the centennial grove dedication and evening extravaganza were also well attended. Barb and Rob Chernoff needed no convincing taking son, Max, 11, along to the daytime festivities on Saturday. The family participated in the Remarkable Red Deer passport event where participants went on a history-inspired scavenger hunt downtown. They visited museums, heritage sites and met a few ghosts.

Chelsea Southcombe, a member of the Aboriginal Youth Dance Troupe, takes part in a dance during the Canada Day opening ceremonies behind the Collicutt Centre during Red Deer’s Canada Day Celebrations on Monday afternoon. Celebrations were moved to the Collicutt Centre from Bower Ponds because of the flooding. The fireworks were moved to the Westerner grounds. BY CRYSTAL RHYNO ADVOCATE STAFF Nothing says diversity quite like a bevy of food booths serving up tasty eats from around the world. On Canada Day, many Red Deerians celebrated Canada’s 146 birthday by making a beeline to the ethnic food court that boasted cuisine from countries like Sweden, India, and The Philippines. Others headed straight to the performance stage to secure a good spot to take in the day’s multi-cultural entertainers. And they all had one thing in common - love for Canada’s vast landscapes, diversity and safety. “When I visit elsewhere I appreciate coming back to Canada,” said Irene Bessette. “We seem so organized ... We are multi-cultural and that makes it

CANADA PARTIES A5 beautiful.” Bessette said many people around the world want to live in Canada for those reasons. Draped in a Canadian flag, Geoffrey Soita, originally from Kenya took in his first Canada Day festivities in Alberta. Soita moved to Red Deer from Ottawa to work in the oilfield in January. Soita said his love for Canada runs deep. “I love just about everything — the freedom,” said Soita. “One of the first things I experienced when I came over here was the ability to walk at anytime at night or day without anyone bothering you and without being robbed or mobbed or whatever.”

PLEASE RECYCLE

Swirling blue and white lights shining on Red Deer’s iconic “green onion” water tower drew a steady stream of people early Friday night. Even all the hungry mosquitoes didn’t deter them from taking a closer look at one of glowing centrepieces of the city’s Centennial celebration. “It’s certainly out of this world isn’t it. It looks like something out of an alien movie,” said Wayne Hopp who was slapping away bugs while taking photos of the Mountview tower as night fell. “Boy the mosquitoes are friendly.” From dusk to dawn, Friday to Monday, the pale green water tower was transformed into a public art canvas by U.K.-based Creatmosphere, Known for making trees appear to breathe for the 2010 London Olympics, the company was tasked to produce a water-themed art installation for Red Deer. The landmark steel tower, that stands 40.2 metres tall with an upper ball 18.9 metres in diameter and underground tank, stores 2.27 million litres or 500,000 gallons of water. When it was completed in 1957 to meet the community’s growing water demands, the tower was the

I’m sure glad we did. It’s almost worth coming back again at midnight.” Bea Tobias, who was in her vehicle hiding from the mosquitoes, came to see the tower with her grandchildren. “It’s beautiful.

STORIES FROM A1

DIVERSITY: Environment, people, culture, plants Doug Janssen said the best thing about Canada is “all the people who have chosen Canada as their home and the cultural diversity that we all enjoy.” Wife Linda added, “It’s beautiful with a real variety from everything that environment, peoples, culture and plants.” Red Deer RCMP Cpl. Dean Grunow celebrated his Canada Day on bike patrol duty at the centre. Grunow said there’s a whole lot to love about Canada including its vastness, diversity and freedom. “Everybody is here for a good reason,” said Grunow. “We’re here to be happy and to celebrate. It makes our job easy because most of what we deal with is people out having fun and celebrating.” Volunteer Sid Selirio came to Canada in the 1960s from The Philippines. Selirio has not regretted leaving his native country. “It’s a good decision for us because we raised our two daughters here,” said Selirio. “There is a lot of opportunity here. One thing I notice here is the peace and order. You can do almost anything without no fear.” The city’s celebrations are usually held at Bower Ponds but recent flooding damage put a damper on the plans so the Red Deer Cultural Heritage Society moved the daytime activities to the Collicutt Centre and the fireworks to the Westerner. Signs were posted at Bower Ponds noting the change in venue. Carroll Borg, president of the society, said despite the change in venue, residents came to show their patriotism and celebrate Canada. She estimated between 3,000 to 4,000 people had flocked to the centre by early afternoon. She expected the crowds to grow throughout the day. “I don’t know if there’s as many as previous years,” said Borg. “I hope everybody heard about it because there was some advertising that it was at Bower Ponds. We tried to get the word out to everybody so I hope it did get out and people managed to arrive here.” Mayor Morris Flewwelling said he felt the society pulled off another Canada Day event for the city. Flewwelling said he loves Canada because of the respect Canadians are given on the national stage. Flewwelling referred to his Order of Canada which he received in 1997. “The motto of the Order of Canada is they desire a better country,” said Flewwelling. “This really leads Canadians to take their country seriously and to try and build a better country.” crhyno@reddeeradvocate.com

The event was part of the Red Deer centennial Homecoming Weekend, and saw several of the city’s ghosts come to life next to their statue counterparts. Galbraith was the city’s first mayor, and the man who changed the name of the local Alberta Advocate to the Red Deer Advocate in 1907. crhyno@reddeeradvocate.com

HOMECOMING: ‘A lot of cool stuff’

TOWER: Worth seeing

“There’s a lot of cool stuff,” said Max, a Grade 6 student at Central Middle School. Local actors dressed up to mimic Red Deer’s bronze Ghost statues including Hazel Braithwaite, Rev. Leonard Gaetz, Francis Wright Galbraith and Doris and Mickey. The “live” ghosts were a hit with both young and old. Maeghen Lee, 9, enjoyed the pancake breakfast at Parkland Mall and the barbecue at Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School with her family. Lee said she loved the “ghosts” especially Doris and Mickey in Coronation Park. The next big centennial event is the Outdoor Barn Dance on Little Gaetz Avenue on July 16.

She said just like clouds in the sky, her grandchildren were seeing different shapes appear in the spiraling patterns projected on the tower from 16 lights. Christine Constable said the tower has been a part of her life ever since she was a child when her grandparents lived nearby. Now she lives in the neighbourhood and she had to come see what was going on. Seaira Constable, 11, said she couldn’t decide if lights made the tower look more like the planet earth or the ocean. “I think it’s worth coming and seeing,” said Nadine Kuiken who walked over after hearing about the light installation from a friend. szielinski@reddeeradvocate.com

High River residents trickle home BY THE CANADIAN PRESS HIGH RIVER — The long road to recovery began on Saturday for some residents of flood-stricken High River as part of the town was opened to those forced out last week. Authorities ordered all 13,000 residents of this community south of Calgary to leave when the Highwood River burst over its banks. Streets were flooded and people were stranded in their vehicles and their homes. “Anger’s not going to get me anywhere and I’m looking at today as AD after destruction”, said Charlotte Jackson after she received a pass to return to her home. “You start your life. It’s 2013 AD. We start building with what we can and that’s all you can do” she said with a chuckle. “If you can’t keep some sort of positive attitude you may not get through this. I intend to get through this. I’ve got a lot of life to live.” The highway leading to High River’s registration centre was a virtual parking lot. There was a huge lineup outside before the doors opened and traffic backed up a kilometre down the road. Only about 5,000 people were allowed in. The next influx will be in about a week and the hardest hit neighbourhoods could be five more weeks. Inside the town residents were checking to see how they fared. Heather Dupont said other than the mess that her three cats made her home is fine. “Oh it’s so good. I’ve been away from home for so long. I’m one of the lucky ones. I’m blessed. Really really blessed”, said Dupont who has been staying with a friend. “I almost feel guilty because my house is fine. We’re grieving and there are a lot of emotions to go through,” she said.

A second wave of homeowners and business owners were allowed to return to the flood ravaged town since the disaster struck on June 20. People were already bringing out flood damaged material from their basements. Things were worse at Kyle Hansen’s home where his backyard was on the High Golf and Country Club. The greens are covered with water

and deep layers of mud that already is showing cracks from the hot sun. “This is the fourth hole on the Highwood Golf and Country Club. We were here Thursday morning and I was watching the water run across the course,” he said.

Saddledome won’t be ready for Calgary Stampede BY THE CANADIAN PRESS

BRIEFS

EVENTS CANCELLED OR MOVED BECAUSE OF FLOODING

CALGARY — Calgary Stampede organizers say some signature events this year have been cancelled because flood repairs to the Saddledome cannot be completed in time. Stampede spokesman Kurt Kadatz says the Calgary Flames have informed Stampede officials that the building won’t be ready for the first five days of this year’s festival. Kadatz says the hockey organization is busy making repairs to the building so it will be ready for the Stampede concert series, which will be held during the second half of the Stampede. He says the penning competition, which sees teams of riders separate three cattle from a herd, will be moved to the nearby community of Okotoks. But other events like the horse cutting and the vintage tractor pull will be cancelled entirely. Record floodwaters filled the Saddledome up to the eighth row over a week ago, but days afterward, Stampede officials vowed this year’s event would go ahead “come hell or high water” beginning this coming Friday. “I know the Flames are working really hard to deliver the Saddledome for us for the concert series,” Kadatz said Sunday. Performers for the series include Carly Rae Jepsen, Kiss, The Dixie Chicks and Tim McGraw. According to a posting on the Calgary Stampede website about the penning competition, no other suitable replacement on the Stampede site exists. “As you are no doubt aware by now, the recent catastrophic flooding in Calgary has caused extremely serious damage to the Saddledome,” the posting advises participants. “The fragile state of the flooring alone prohibits the heavy machinery and tons of dirt at this time, let alone the host of other major issues.” The heavy horse show, which features Belgian, Clydesdale, Percheron and Shire horses moving to music of the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, will also have to move from the Saddledome into a large tent called The Big Top. The website says organizers are hoping to announce a modified schedule soon. Crews have pumped millions of litres of water from the rodeo grounds, scraped mud, torn out and replaced drywall and have been sanitizing surfaces in Stampede Park just southeast of downtown as the days tick down to the opening parade later this week. Organizers and longtime Stampede volunteers say it’s important for the party and rodeo to go ahead this year.

“It came up incredibly fast. It was an actual river running through the golf course.” Chad Thomlinson runs the golf course and worries about the business and getting home. “I know there’s a lot of other people in town that will face a lot more than a flooded basement,” said Thomlinson. “I’ve got to get back in. We’ve left our families behind, our wives and kids, and really the next thing for me is when can I get friends in to help.” A state of disaster remains in effect. The length of time away from home coupled with a few hundred who defied the evacuation order led to simmering tensions. Ryan Domes was relieved to get the news he was able to deal with his flooded basement. “My first thought was it’s about time. I know there’s a lot of challenges in town but there’s a lot of dry areas,” he said. “Good news for us. Bad news for most people. We feel for them.” A tour of the hardest hit areas shows little progress. There are streets under deep water and street signs almost submerged. Clean up work continued Saturday in neighbouring Calgary where a state of emergency also remains in place. But there are no longer any Calgarians under an evacuation order. The Alberta government announced Calgary residents with flood damage can start applying for funding on Tuesday. Registration centres are opening in Calgary so residents with property damage can access disaster financial assistance. “We promised support to rebuild would reach Albertans within days. This is happening,” said provincial cabinet minister Ric McIver. “We are starting with communities where safe re-entry and rebuilding has begun so they have the money they need to start their recovery.”

RCMP say they will start returning guns seized in homes during flood

Clean-up crews check out the ice surface and seating area as work continues at the Saddledome in Calgary on Monday, June 24. “I think more Calgarians are going to go this year because they want to say they went this year, because they have Calgary pride,” said Cliff Steedman, a retiree who has been volunteering with the Calgary Stampede for three decades. For the past few years, Steedman, who is 85, has been volunteering as a carpenter and built sets for cooking performances. Unfortunately, he said his son’s home was damaged by the flooding, so he’s busy helping with the cleanup and had to bow out of his Stampede duties this year. Many other volunteers are still available, however, according to Stampede spokeswoman Jennifer Booth. Now that the water has been drained from the grounds, she said the area is surprisingly dusty. The rodeo infield and track have been dried out. Crews are tearing apart walls inside buildings, while outside, other crews are planting flowers. The midway rides have arrived and are being set up, Booth said. Booth said the Stampede got a lucky break in that its electrical substation -- essential for everything from amusement rides to concessions -- was protected from water damage and is operational.

HIGH RIVER — Mounties in Alberta announced Sunday that they’ll begin returning some of the guns they seized during searches of evacuated homes in this flood ravaged town. An RCMP news release says that owners of guns that were seized should call police, and that an officer will call them back to make arrangements to have the weapons picked up. The Mounties said earlier that they took the guns as officers searched homes in High River’s flood zone to look for flood victims, pets and anything that might pose a threat to returning residents. Any guns were removed from homes because they were not properly stored, said Staff Sgt. Brian Jones, who added that no charges are planned. “There is no indication of that at this point in time. That wasn’t the reason. That wasn’t the intention,” Jones said about the gun seizures. “Our focus was on the search and rescue operations.” The move to take the weapons was condemned by the Prime Minister’s Office, who said the Mounties should focus on more important tasks such as protecting lives and private property. Critics took the PMO to task, saying the Harper government should not be dictating how the Mounties should conduct their operations. Jones said owners of guns that were seized can let RCMP hang onto their firearms if they can’t return to their homes, yet. He said it’s also OK if they want to store the guns with someone else.

Senate shows its mettle For their final act in their season of shame, the trained Conservative seals in the Senate finally found a ball they would not bounce off their nose. By slicing and dicing a sloppy, meanspirited government anti-union bill on a steamy summer afternoon, the Red Chamber was starring in a “revenge of the Senate” saga, one that has repercussions for the three parties in the House of Commons and their respective positions on the fuTIM ture of the SenHARPER ate. As the curtain fell, we were given an intriguing twist that gave rise to any number of political narratives. The disgraced Senate was showing its mettle. Conservatives in the Senate were delivering a message to their colleagues in the Commons. It was payback time for the “Rathgeber nerds.” It was another poke in the eye to Stephen Harper from his appointees, it was a bump in the road for NDP

INSIGHT

Leader Tom Mulcair’s Senate abolition campaign but a boost for Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau’s oft-derided contention that the institution can function properly with quality appointments. Some of these lines, but not all, have merit. The man behind the amendments to Bill C-377, the Paul Martin-appointed former Progressive Conservative, Hugh Segal, has his own take on this twist. “Sometimes the ultimate position of partisan loyalty is to protect your prime minister from bad legislation that would have had terrible ramifications for him and his government,” Segal says. In Segal’s view, there was no overriding message behind this apparent act of defiance other than a bad piece of legislation being properly gutted because it was poorly drafted and poorly conceived. In its original form, the bill — a private initiative from British Columbia MP Russ Hiebert that had government support — would have forced all unions to disclose all payments over $5,000 to outside groups or individuals. It would have also forced public disclosure of the names and salaries of all union officials and employees earning more than $100,000. Segal’s amendments, backed by 16 Conservatives, most of them recent Harper appointees, exempted unions with fewer than 50,000 members, raised the payment threshold to $150,000 and

the salary disclosure level to $444,661. Another six Conservatives offered support by abstaining. Liberals in the Senate had opposed the Hiebert bill and declared victory, taking credit for pushing the Conservative mavericks. “In the core of my being I believe Liberals are the devil’s spawn,” Segal says. “I have spent 50 years fighting against them. “You make changes to a badly drafted bill and you become a bunch of mavericks? “That sets the bar pretty low for mavericks. I don’t believe this was a partisan event.” Indeed, senators had heard concerns from privacy commissioners and constitutional experts and heard testimony indicating the bill’s wide net could violate the privacy of mutualfund holders and those who receive insurance or medical benefits. “Notwithstanding the fact that, at its base, this bill is not constitutional, it is absolutely unworthy of legislation from the Parliament of Canada,” said Liberal Sen. Pierrette Ringuette. The $444,661 salary threshold is the same threshold for disclosure of public servant salaries adopted by Conservatives on a Commons committee that neutered MP Brent Rathgeber’s private member’s transparency bill, his final indignity before he bolted caucus. What is fair for public servants, ac-

cording to the Commons, should be fair for union officials, Segal says. Outside the Senate, the muscle-flexing provided a sobering interruption to the NDP’s summer Roll Up the Red Carpet tour. The party had to deal with the fact that unelected, unaccountable Conservative senators put the brakes on a piece of legislation it could not stop in the House. (Mulcair had always said the bill would be defeated in the courts.) And it had to deal with a statement from the Broadbent Institute, the leftleaning Ottawa think-tank, which congratulated Segal and the Senate for standing up for the rights of millions of Canadian workers and showing its “underused capability to provide sober second thought. ... (This) is good news for Canada’s democracy and economy.” No one voted on the basis of removing any of the tarnish from the spending scandal, Segal said, and it would be “unduly optimistic” to think this would change the public perception of the Senate. But this was only round one. Whether Harper prorogues Parliament or not, some form of this bill is headed back to Segal and the seals and the PM has made it clear that next time he expects them to dance.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Why is their sexuality newsworthy? According to a front-page story in the June 26 edition of the Advocate, “Two gay cowboys are hoping to be the pride of Central Alberta when they compete for a big pay day in Amazing Race Canada next month.” While I suspect most Central Albertans would wish them success, why is it necessary for us to know they are gay? The Advocate would never print a story about, say, two heterosexual cowboys, so why is the sexual orientation of the Innisfail duo reported? I thought we all wanted to be considered equal, but as George Orwell famously wrote, “Some are more equal than others.” Until people stop unnecessarily displaying their sexual preferences, they cannot expect to be treated with the respect they crave. Central Albertans should admire their fellow citizens’ achievements regardless of their sexual status. Jack Van Vliet Red Deer County

Thanks to city staff during flood Just a very special thanks to the city workers who spend the entire weekend, June 21 to 23, on watch by the river, keeping everyone at a distance and safe. The owner and staff at North Star Sports wish to extend our appreciation and gratitude to them for all their hard work. Thank you, Jim DeZutter North Star Sports

Looking for long-lost Crispin relatives My uncle, Reginald John Crispin, born June 23, 1889, at Starcross, Devon, U.K., migrated to Canada in 1911. I have traced him to Innisfail. I learned that in 1915 he joined the Canadian Expeditionary Force, in 1933 he was a delegate of the UFA as a director, in 1936, he was secretary of the Cereal UFA, in 1939, he was elected Fairview UFA president, in 1940 he was with the Innisfail District Co-op Association and in 1945 he was branch manager of UFA central Co-op at Veteran. He had two daughters, my cousins, who I am trying to trace. I do not know their names, birth dates, or their mother’s name. Any reference to them would be greatly appreciated and help my search. They are possibly deceased, but at least I would have a name for them. Jess Murch 2 Southcote Orchard Totnes, Devon United Kingdom TQ9 5PA

Use equalization money for flood aid I would suggest we let the rest of Canada know that due to our flood problems and expenses to repair same, Alberta will require $5 billion be dropped and kept by Alberta from the Canada Equalization Payments Fund to pay for these disastrous claims that are coming our way. I’m sure that with the right political approach the rest of the country will realize and understand that Alberta needs to do this. E.T. (Tom) Skoreyko Red Deer

Cycling is smart but some cyclists need to get smarter Bicycles are an increasingly popular, affordable and practical transportation option. Many cities are making life easier for cyclists by building separated lanes, implementing bike-share programs and introducing regulations to reduce conflict between bikes and cars. You can now find bicycle sharing in 500 cities in 49 countries, including Red Deer, Beijing, Montreal, Chicago, Paris and Mexico City. In my home city of Vancouver, we’re still waiting for a planned sharing program, but cycling is the fastest-growing transportation mode here, jumping by 40 per cent since 2008, from about 47,000 to 67,000 daily trips. This is mainDAVID ly thanks to an ever-expanding SUZUKI network of bike lanes and routes. The personal and societal benefits of getting out of your car and onto a bike are well-known: better mental and physical fitness and reduced health-care costs, less pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, often speedier commutes and significant cost savings, to name a few. Studies also show the exercise benefits of cycling exceed negative health effects from pollution and injury. Still, despite the many arguments in favour of cycling, increased infrastructure always incites criticism — most of it unwarranted. And the behaviour of some cyclists doesn’t help. Let’s consider some claims from opponents. Two main ones are that bicycling initiatives hurt local businesses and impede car traffic. Numerous studies show the opposite is often true: over the long term, business usually improves and car traffic is reduced. When bike lanes do affect car-commuting times, it’s often by a small amount. Research by the New York City Department of Transportation found retail sales increased 49 per cent along Ninth Avenue after a protected bike lane was built, compared to just three per cent for the rest of Manhattan. A Toronto study focused on Bloor West Village found far more customers arrive by foot, bike

or transit than by car and “visit more often and report spending more money than those who drive.” As for impacts on car commuting, bike lanes often have a negligible or even positive effect. More people cycling means reduced car traffic — the real cause of gridlock and slowdowns. Not everyone can use a bike and sometimes cycling isn’t practical. But as people opt for alternatives to cars, the roads open up for those who must drive. A study by Stantec Consulting Ltd. found Vancouver drivers thought it took them five minutes longer to travel along a street with a new bike lane, but it actually took from five seconds less to just a minute and 37 seconds more. Studies around the world also show that bike lanes have significantly reduced accidents involving cyclists, as well as the incidence of speeding cars. But if we really want to increase safety for cyclists — and pedestrians and motorists — we all need to take responsibility for our behaviours. People navigating on foot must be aware of surrounding bikes, buses, cars and other people and not wander with their eyes fixed on electronic devices. Car drivers need to follow road rules and be more aware of cyclists and pedestrians. Some cyclists just need to be smarter. A lot of criticism of the growing number of cyclists in cities is valid: too many blast through stop signs, don’t give pedestrians the right-of-way, refuse to signal turns, ride against traffic, don’t make themselves visible enough and use sidewalks. Many seem to have a sense of entitlement compelling them to ignore laws. It doesn’t take much to learn and follow the rules, and investing in proper gear — including lights and reflectors — is absolutely necessary. You’ll not only be safer; you’ll also be less likely to anger motorists, pedestrians and fellow cyclists. Some jurisdictions have resorted to increased regulations and penalties to make cycling safer and to reduce conflicts between cyclists and drivers. In Chicago, bike riders face increased fines for disobeying traffic laws, as do motorists who cause bike accidents. The fine for “dooring” a cyclist (opening a vehicle door without looking and hitting a bike) doubled from $500 to $1,000. There’s really no doubt: anything that increases bicycle use, from separated lanes to bike-sharing programs, makes cities more livable and citizens healthier. Cyclists must do their part to build support for initiatives that make cycling easier, safer and more popular. Scientist, author and broadcaster David Suzuki wrote this column with Ian Hanington.

Canada parties SPIRIT OF ALBERTANS DURING FLOODS CELEBRATED AS WHAT IT MEANS TO BE CANADIAN BY THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — Celebrating the past achievements of Canada has always been a staple of the national Canada Day celebrations on Parliament Hill. But this year more recent triumphs were also feted: the down-to-earth pluck of Albertans coping with recent floods and the around-the-Earth exploits of astronaut Chris Hadfield. Both were honoured by the stars and dignitaries taking part in the annual noon show, cheered on by an estimated 80,000 people attending the event. Prime Minister Stephen Harper said those in Alberta set an example for all Canadians. “When floods forced so many from their homes, communities dug deep, neighbours helped neighbours and people sheltered complete strangers,” Harper said in his speech. “That’s the spirit that makes Canada the best country in the world. The best, bar none.” The spirit came alive in the form of Tucker Densmore of Halifax and Adrian Thow of Brampton, Ont. who were a hit in the Parliament Hill crowd, covered from head to toe in red and white face paint, Canada flags draped on their backs like capes. Families that happened upon them had their pictures snapped with the colourful pair. “My big wish for Canada is just to keep living the great life we live, just a great multicultural society and we’re just so fortunate to live here in Canada,” said Thow. Anastase Rouli, who moved to Canada from Rwanda 24 years ago, took in the midday show with his wife and three daughters. “It’s a peaceful and multicultural state, and Canada is one of the best countries in the world, so it makes me happy to be here,” Rouli said. The Parliament Hill noon event featured a performances by Terri Clark, Carly Rae Jepsen, Marie-Mei and Metric, as well as live coverage of celebrations in New York and London. But the biggest cheers came for Chris Hadfield. Hadfield’s photographs of Canada taken from his perch aboard the international space station earlier this year earned him fans around the world. He rocketed further upwards in many’s estimation by recording a song while in space that he performed on Monday. Governor General David Johnston said Canada Day is about celebrating the contributions of Hadfield, Albertans and all Canadians. “Let me thank you—every Canadian who gives back to his or her community, every Canadian who takes risks, every Canadian who reaches for a dream; every Canadian who has made and continues to make Canada a truly great country,” Johnston said. “We have so much talent, so much creativity, so

Shooting in Montreal bar leaves two people dead, another in hospital MONTREAL — Two people are dead and a third is in hospital following a shooting at a bar in Montreal’s Lasalle district Monday night. Police say one man in his 30s died at the scene and the second victim, also in his 30s, died later in hospital. The third victim, in his 20s, suffered non lifethreatening injuries. Police spokesman Danny Richer says a person in his 20s was arrested nearby but it was unclear if this person was a suspect. The shooting occurred in a bar at about 6:15 p.m. (on Newman Blvd.). The deaths are Montreal’s 14th and 15th homicides of the year.

So I challenge you this year to do and give what you can, to make our country smarter and more caring, fairer and more just, stronger and more united.” The support that Canadians have offered to floodravaged Alberta prompted Premier Alison Redford to publicly thank them in a video. “Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts,” Redford said in the video. “Whether it’s Red Cross volunteers from Newfoundland, social workers from Guelph (Ont.), dog trainers from Kelowna (B.C.) who provided food for search and rescue dogs, the important time and money Canadians poured into the Red Cross to help us rebuild.” ”On this Canada Day we are so grateful to be part of a Canadian community,” she added.

said thousands joined the celebrations at Fort Calgary, the site where the North West Mounted Police built their fort in 1875, laying the foundations for the future city. Located at the confluence of the Bow and Elbow rivers, the fort remained dry even though there was severe flooding all around it. Sara Gruetzner, Fort Calgary CEO, said many of the people who came to the fort thanked staff for going ahead with Canada Day celebrations and welcomed the break from cleaning out their flooddamaged homes. “It’s pretty hard when you live in a big city to feel like you’re part of a community. But I think Calgarians are a pretty tight bunch tight now,” said Gruetzner, whose own home ended up with a basement full of water.

Despite those developments, Wabush mayor Ron Barron says the town’s state of emergency remains in effect.

A spokesman for the province’s Department of Natural Resources says the fire has consumed around 700 square kilometres since it began over a week ago.

He was a Winnipeg native who was also CEO of an online gambling software company. Quinones says he expects the extradition process for Vazquez to take between six and nine months.

Audience watch Cirque du Soleil acrobat’s fatal fall in Vegas show LAS VEGAS — The founder of Cirque du Soleil says his performance company, renowned for extravagant shows that challenge the boundaries of the body and the stage, is “completely devastated” after an acrobat fell to her death over the weekend, with the audience watching. It was the first stage casualty in the company’s 29-year history, according to Cirque spokeswoman Renee-Claude Menard. Coroner’s officials said French-born Sarah Guillot-Guyard, 31, was pronounced dead at a Las Vegas hospital late Saturday after falling about 50 feet (15 metres) from the stage during a production of Ka. The show has been suspended. “I am heartbroken,” Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte said in a statement. “We are reminded with great humility and respect how extraordinary our artists are each and every night. Our focus now is to support each other as a family.” Witnesses told the Las Vegas Sun newspaper that the accident occurred during a fight scene near the end of the production, which combines acrobatics with martial arts and puppetry and tells the story of twins on a heroic quest. Visitor Dan Mosqueda said the woman was being hoisted up the side of the stage when it appeared that she detached from her safety wire and plummeted into an open pit. “Initially, a lot of people in the audience thought it was part of the (show),” he told the Sun. “But you could hear screaming, then groaning, and we could hear a female artist crying from the stage.” The show momentarily continued, then stopped. Minutes after the accident, the crowd was dismissed.

Opponents of Egypt’s Islamist President Mohammed Morsi chant slogans during a protest outside the presidential palace, in Cairo, Egypt, Monday. Egypt’s military on Monday issued a 48-hour ultimatum to the Islamist president and his opponents to reach an agreement to “meet the people’s demands” or it will intervene to put forward a political road map for the country and ensure it is carried out. waved banners with Morsi’s picture on it. “The military has sacrificed legitimacy. There will be a civil war,” Manal Shouib, a 47-year-old physiotherapist at the pro-president rally outside the Rabia al-Adawiya Mosque not far from Ittihadiya. Mohammed Saeed, another Morsi supporter, vowed that he would fight the military if the president is ousted. “If he (el-Sissi) wants to get rid of us, we will not run. We will face bullets with our bodies. Let the general commander of the armed forces respect his president.” The sense of predicament among Morsi’s supporters was apparent as they concluded the sunset prayers with a supplication.

“May God answer the prayers of these extended hands to You. God, accept us as martyrs for Your cause and make Your slave Mohammed Morsi victorious,” said the imam who led the prayers. Muslims routinely refer to themselves as slaves of God. In a sign of Morsi’s growing isolation, five Cabinet ministers said on Monday they have resigned their posts to join the protest movement, the state news agency said. The five are the ministers of communications, legal affairs, environment, tourism and water utilities, MENA reported. The governor of the strategic province of Ismailia on the Suez Canal, Hassan el-Rifaai, also quit Monday, saying he made the decision in the interest of the nation.

Sunni militia that fights al-Qaida, officials said, in the latest of a growing surge of insurgent strikes that are plaguing Iraq. The first attack illustrated that while Sunni-Shiite sectarian violence is in a dangerous upswing, there are other forces at play as well. Eight Sunni Muslim militiamen were snatched from their houses in the town of Mishahda and surrounding villages during the past two days and then killed, a police officer said. He said their bodies were left in an orchard on Monday with gunshot wounds. Some had their hands bound behind their backs. The government-allied militiamen, or Sahwa, joined with U.S. troops to fight al-Qaida before the U.S. pullout in late 2011. Since then, they have been a frequent target for al-Qaida in Iraq, which considers them traitors. The town where the abductions took place, a former insurgent stronghold, is about 30 kilometres (20 miles) north of the capital. Sectarian violence also erupted Monday. Shortly after sunset, a suicide bomber set off his explosive belt inside a Shiite mosque where a funeral was taking place, killing nine people and wounding 40 others. The attack took place in the town of Muqdadiyah, about 90 kilometres north of Baghdad.

Documents: U.S. archbishop asked Vatican to remove priests MILWAUKEE — The cardinal of the Archdiocese of New York, in his former job, warned the future Pope Benedict XVI that “the potential for true scandal is very real” over sex abuse claims, according to documents released Monday. Former Milwaukee Archbishop Timothy Dolan — now president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and the nation’s most prominent Roman Catholic official — sought to push problem priests out of the priesthood after people began coming forward with abuse claims in the early 2000s. Dolan wrote to then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the future pope, in July 2003 asking to dismiss Daniel Budzynski. Abuse allegations against Budzynski stretched back to the 1970s, and Dolan told Ratzinger that “as victims organize and become more public, the potential for true scandal is very real.” The Vatican removed Budzynski from the priesthood in 2004.

CAIRO, Egypt — Egypt’s powerful military warned on Monday it will intervene if the Islamist president doesn’t “meet the people’s demands,” giving him and his opponents two days to reach an agreement in what it called a last chance. Hundreds of thousands of protesters massed for a second day calling on Mohammed Morsi to step down. Military helicopters, some dangling Egyptian flags, swooped over Cairo’s Tahrir Square where many broke into cheers with the army’s announcement, read on state television. The statement seemed to fuel the flow of crowds into city squares around the country where protesters chanted and sang. “Come out, el-Sissi. The people want to topple the regime,” protesters in the Nile Delta city of Mahalla el-Kubra chanted, urging military chief Gen. AbdelFattah el-Sissi to intervene. The military’s statement puts enormous pressure on Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood. So far, the president has vowed he will remain in his position, but the opposition and crowds in the street — who numbered in the millions nationwide on Sunday — have made clear they will accept nothing less than his departure and a transition to early presidential elections. That makes action by the generals when the deadline runs out nearly inevitable, since a deal seems unlikely. The statement did not define the “people’s demands” that must be met. But it strongly suggested that Sunday’s gigantic rallies expressed the desire of Egyptians, raising the likelihood it would insist on Morsi’s departure. An army move against Morsi, however, risks a backlash from his Islamist supporters, who include hard-line former militants. Morsi met Monday with el-Sissi and Prime Minister Hesham Kandil, according to the president’s Facebook page, without giving further details. Already, the military’s presence in Cairo has increased at sensitive spots the past two days. Troops on Monday manned checkpoints on roads leading to a pro-Morsi rally of Islamists near his palace. They checked cars for weapons, after repeated reports some Islamists were arming themselves. Morsi’s backers have been infuriated by what they call an opposition move to forcibly overthrow Egypt’s first president chosen in a democratic election. Some see the campaign as aimed at defeating the “Islamist project.” In the evening, the pro-president rally outside the Rabia al-Adawiya Mosque not far from the Ittihadiya palace also swelled, though it was eclipsed by the opposition rallies. Its participants blew whistles and

Playing the waiting game REBELS WAITING TO SEE IF THEY GET BARTOSAK BACK AFTER BEING DRAFTED BY KINGS RICK DIPIETRO

ISLES TO BUY OUT DIPIETRO An Islanders team official confirmed that the team will buy out the remaining eight years of oft-injured goalie Rick DiPietro’s contract. The 31-yearold DiPietro, the No. 1 pick in the 2000 NHL draft, will be placed on waivers Tuesday before the compliance buyout can be used. The club will have to pay DiPietro $1.5 million for each of the next 16 years — double the years left on his original 15-year pact with New York. That amount won’t count against the Islanders’ salary cap. DiPietro didn’t immediately respond to a text message sent to him by the AP on Monday night. He has been limited to 50 NHL games since the 200809 season, plagued by multiple concussions and injuries to his hip and knees that required surgery.

BY GREG MEACHEM ADVOCATE SPORTS EDITOR The $64,000 question had yet to be asked one day after Red Deer Rebels all-star netminder Patrik Bartosak was selected by the Los Angeles Kings in Sunday’s NHL entry draft at Newark, N.J. Brent Sutter’s enquiring mind wanted to know if there was any chance the Kings would hold off on signing Bartosak for 12 months and instead send him back to the Rebels as a 20-year-old stopper. The Kings picked Bartosak in the fifth Patrik Bartosak round — 146th overall — of the draft and Sutter, with brother Darryl the head coach in Los Angeles, was hoping to get some kind of idea Sunday of whether Bartosak will be signed in short order. “I talked to Darryl today and he said the team management was in the air (flying back to Los Angeles),” said the Rebels GM/head coach. “I’ll try and catch someone there the first thing in the morning.” Sutter, with the CHL import draft set for Wednesday, needs some sort of idea of what the Kings have planned for Bartosak next season. “At the end of the day, I have to know . .

. yes or no,” he said. “If they say it’s 100 per cent they’re not sending him back, then I have to move forward and go in a different direction. Darryl told me today the Kings were high on (Bartosak) and they thought they’d be able to get him in the fifth round and they did. “Darryl said he doesn’t know if Patty could be sent back to us. He just knows the Kings are high on him. They came into Red Deer in February and spent 10 days watching him and left here speaking very highly of him. Who knows what they’re going to tell us, but I have to know if there’s any kind of a chance we could get him back.” If Sutter hears that Bartosak is likely ticketed for one more year in the WHL, then the Rebels bench boss — with Czech forward Dominik Volek already guaranteed of a berth — will not participate in Wednesday’s CHL import draft. Bartosak, meanwhile, told Kings radio commentator Daryl Evans that he was simply tickled to have his name called. “Being drafted has been my dream,” he said. “It’s an awesome feeling and the Kings are a great organization. I’m looking forward to being part of this organization.” Bartosak also told Evans that he’s his own man, despite idolozing the likes of NHL netminders Patrick Lalime, Jose Theodore and Pekka Rinne over the years. “Those three guys were kind of my idols, but I never tried to play like them. I just liked the way they played and that was it,” said Bartosak. As for his highlight moments prior to the draft . . .

“My first game for the Red Deer Rebels in the WHL, that’s one of my biggest moments,” said Bartosak. “Winning the gold medal in a midget league in the Czech Republic is another highlight, as is getting drafted into the NHL.” Asked if Los Angeles was ever on his radar, Bartosak responded: “I was thinking of every possibility and L.A. was there too. I thought it would be unreal to get into this organization and the city. I’m definitely looking forward to being there.” Meanwhile, Rebels defenceman Kayle Doetzel and forward Matt Bellerive — both of whom were ranked by Central Scouting — were passed over in the draft. “I was hoping they would get picked, but from things I was told at the end of the season there was a chance it would not happen for either one of them,” said Sutter. “I talked to ‘Doetz’ as the end of the year and told him that if he wants to reach the next level that he has to bring his A game to the table on a nightly basis. He has to become more of a physical presence on the ice and more of a consistent player, and the same things goes for Bellerive. “Both will be key players for us next season and both have to mature on that path and give us what we expect of them. There’s no reason why ‘Doetz’ can’t be a top-four Dman here. He’s going to determine that with his play. He has to be more of a presence on the ice on a nightly basis. He has the opportunity to come back as an 18-year-old and take his game to the next level. The same goes for Bellerive as a 19-year-old.” gmeachem@reddeeradvocate.com

Avs true to word and select MacKinnon BY THE CANADIAN PRESS NEWARK, N.J. — Like the season itself, the NHL draft was compressed. But a rich crop proved to be long on talent and familiar names. The Colorado Avalanche were true to their word Sunday, taking stylish centre Nathan MacKinnon first overall. But the Florida Panthers sprang a surprise next, choosing Finnish centre Aleksander Barkov over defenceman Seth Jones. The top-ranked North American skater according to the NHL Central Scouting Bureau eventually went to Nashville fourth overall after Tampa took winger Jonathan Drouin. “This a franchise-type player,” Nashville GM David Poile, delighted to have a six-foot-four, 205-pound defenceman drop in his lap, said of Jones. “So I really feel good about our defence right now.” Nashville already has Shea Weber, a difference-maker on the blue-line. They lost another stud defenceman prior to this season when Ryan Suter signed with the Minnesota Wild. The Avs, who won the draft lottery over the Florida Panthers, said they liked Jones but thought it prudent to draft a forward. Colorado wanted offence, noting that four of the five top scorers this season were No. 1 overall picks. While the Avalanche knew who they wanted, the teams behind them thought long and hard who they wanted. It made for some early intrigue at the Prudential Center. The draft, a one-day affair this year instead of split over two days, was a love-in for Devils fans who booed their local

As the draft ended some seven hours later, there was a moment to savour for the locals in the seventh round when 41-year-old goalie Martin Brodeur took the stage to announce New Jersey was taking his son Anthony, also a goalie, with the 208th pick. The Devils had made an even bigger goalie splash earlier in

the day when they announced the acquisition of Cory Schneider from Vancouver for the ninth overall pick. A gracious Brodeur Sr., saying he wasn’t going to play forever, thought the deal was good for the Devils. He has one year left on his contact and said he would push Schneider for playing time. But he sounded like he had seen the writing on the

wall, calling Schneider a “topfive” goalie. It was a day where the future looked bright for all 30 teams, although Poile noted that after Jones, all his other picks were prospects. And it was a draft full of names from the past, both distant and recent.

Blue Jays pounce on Tigers’ pitching

Photo by THE CANADIAN PRESS

Toronto Blue Jays Jose Reyes hits a solo home run off Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Jose Alvarez during third inning action in Toronto on Monday. BY THE CANADIAN PRESS Blue Jays 8 Tigers 3 TORONTO — Mark DeRosa is the first to admit he isn’t exactly an intimidating batter. DeRosa, a 38-year-old bench player the Blue Jays added this season for

depth, has been dealing with a sore neck and a slump at the plate in which he hadn’t had a hit since June 18 against Colorado. So when an injury forced first baseman Adam Lind out of the roster, DeRosa found himself filling in Monday. Even more unexpected was his No. 4 spot in the batting order.

But no one was more surprised than the Detroit Tigers when DeRosa launched a three-run homer, an exclamation point in Toronto’s 8-3 victory against the American League champions. “I’ve always been a guy who likes to work the ball the other way and it’s been frustrating over the last couple weeks,” said DeRosa. “You know, flying open, striking out and grounding out to short. Doing things that, I pride myself on being a quality at-bat. Definitely hitting fourth was not on the agenda coming into the season.” DeRosa joked he told star Jose Bautista, who was hitting third in the lineup after slugger Edwin Encarnacion was pulled just before the game with left hamstring soreness, to take off his shin guard at the plate and expect to be walked. It ended up being no joke at all. The Tigers walked Bautista twice, and DeRosa made them pay in the fourth inning with his fifth homer of the season. “Obviously you can’t replace Eddie, you can’t replace the way Lind swung the bat. I’m aware of that,” said DeRosa. “But there’s guys here that are capable of doing things they have to to help us win.” DeRosa had plenty of help during a festive Canada Day game at Rogers Centre. Shortstop Jose Reyes, who made his first appearance at home since April before he was put on the disabled list with a severely sprained left ankle, hit his second home run in two games. Blue Jays knuckleballer R.A. Dickey (8-8), following up on his best outing of the season last week, was again solid against Detroit’s intimidating batting order. He allowed two earned runs on six hits with four strikeouts through

seven innings. Two of those strikeouts were against reigning batting champion Miguel Cabrera, who is leading the majors with a .369 average. Dickey said his velocity is returning, and that’s making the knuckleball much more effective than it was during a rough start to the season. “I think any pedestrian could see that (the pitch) is harder. That the velocity’s come back,” said Dickey. “It’s been kind of a tough go getting it back. I threw a knuckleball 81 miles an hour today, I threw a lot of 80 miles an hour, I threw an 85 mile an hour fastball. All those velocities are tops for the year.” Prince Fielder, who hit a solo homer off Dickey, said he could see why the other Tigers batters were having so much trouble. “It was knuckling. It’s hard for catchers to catch it so imagine how hard it is to hit it,” said Fielder. Dickey was relieved by Steve Delabar, who impressed by striking out the heart of Detroit’s offence in Torii Hunter, Cabrera and Fielder in the eighth inning. Aaron Loup finished the game for Toronto in the ninth to get the Blue Jays (41-41) back to .500. Omar Infante, who finished 4-for-4, went deep in the ninth for the slumping Tigers (43-38), who now have just one win in their last seven games and trail American League Central-leading Cleveland by a half-game. “We’re in a little funk right now and we’ve just got to get ourselves out of it,” said Detroit manager Jim Leyland. You’ll got to roll with that punch and you’ve got to try and do something about it.“ Tigers rookie left-hander Jose Alvarez (1-2), making his fourth start of the season, lasted just three innings after giving up five runs, four earned, and walking three with four strikeouts.

Riders know games will get tougher after rout of Eskimos BY THE CANADIAN PRESS EDMONTON — One thing the Saskatchewan Roughriders know — the games will get harder from here. Their first game of the season couldn’t have been much easier. Quarterback Darian Durant passed for three touchdowns as the Roughriders started off the CFL season in fine form, blasting the hapless Edmonton Eskimos 39-18 on Saturday afternoon. Saskatchewan is off to a 1-0 start in its quest to appear in the 101st Grey Cup in Regina. “We did some good things, a lot of good things,” said Roughriders head coach Corey Chamblin. “We played well and we won, but we didn’t play well for all four quarters and that’s something we can still work on. We want to win all four quarters each and every game. We got our goal, which is to win on the road. Now we have to make sure we win all four quarters consistently on the road.” Riders linebacker Renauld Williams also tried to keep the victory in perspective.

“It’s one game,” said Williams, who closed out the first half with an interception return TD, his first since 2008. “We just want to get better play by play and week by week. It’s a great start though. Especially on the road and especially in Edmonton because we have a history here.” The Roughriders have not had much success at Edmonton’s Commonwealth Stadium over the years. Saskatchewan came into the game with just a 9-40 regular season record, including a sixgame losing streak extending back to September 2009. The Eskimos, meanwhile, lost their first season-opener in three years under head coach Kavis Reed. “We did not execute very well,” Reed said. “Penalties were our nemesis today. We did not tackle as well as we wanted. We lost the game in all three phases. “There are a lot of things that we have to look at. There are a lot of things we have to evaluate from top to bottom to make certain we get better.” Saskatchewan scored five minutes in to the game’s opening drive as Kory Sheets took a handoff from Durant and

scampered 19 yards for the touchdown and an early 7-0 lead. The Eskimos took a string of penalties that allowed the Riders to march downfield and make it 14-0, as Durant hit Taj Smith for a 13-yard TD pass with a minute to play in the opening quarter. Saskatchewan added a punt single before Edmonton came back with a single point of their own on a missed field goal. The botched kick came shortly after the Eskimos finally had good field possession thanks to a 46-yard passing play to Fred Stamps. The Eskimos’ disastrous opening half concluded with an extremely poor play. Edmonton found itself deep in its own end with time expired and quar-

terback Mike Reilly opted to pass instead of going down on a broken play. Williams picked off the pass and ran it 19 yards into the end zone to put the Roughriders up 22-1 at half. “I think that was just a bad decision by their quarterback,” Williams said. “He’ll learn. He should have thrown the ball away. Even if he had completed it, you are probably not going to score. I was thinking ’He’s not going to throw this,’ but he threw it. Opportunities like that don’t arise very often and you have to make the play when it is there like that. “He just has to make a better decision on that one.” The Eskimos left the field at the half to a chorus of boos from their hometown fans.

Cornish leads Stamps over Lions THE CANADIAN PRESS

“We were able to move the line of scrimmage a bit, open some holes up for Jon, and he ran very hard, showed excellent quickness, excellent cutting ability, secured the football,” Hufnagel said. “He did everything you want your running back to do.” Quarterback Drew Tate completed 19-of-27 passes for 237 yards and three touchdowns, two of them to Joe West and one to Maurice Price. “Drew, I thought, played a very solid game,” Hufnagel said. “He made some great throws, his receivers made some great plays for him and that’s what you need. He was on top of his game, good reads.”

71437C28

CALGARY — After running for 172 yards and two touchdowns on Friday, Jon Cornish said he wished he could have done more. Cornish led the Calgary Stampeders to a 4432 win over the visiting B.C. Lions on Friday in front of 26,625 fans at McMahon Stadium. “For me, I was really moved at the beginning of the game seeing the turnout, seeing how many people really believed in the Stampeders,” Cornish said. “They could be working on their homes. They could be fixing other people’s homes, but they came out

for the game tonight.” A day before the game, Cornish pledged to donate $10 for every yard he gained against the Lions to the Canadian Red Cross for the flood relief efforts in Southern Alberta. In addition to his 172 yards on the ground, he added 20 more through the air. “I’m going to round it up to $2,000,” Cornish said. “I wish I could do more. For us as Stampeders the No. 1 thing we can do for this city is win and give this city something to rally behind.” Calgary (1-0) head coach and general manager John Hufnagel also commended his offensive line for opening up holes for Cornish.

Flames take Monahan with first pick ADD POIRIER AND KLIMCHUK WITH OTHER FIRST ROUND PICKS AT NHL DRAFT SUNDAY BY THE CANADIAN PRESS NEWARK, N.J. — The Calgary Flames are in full rebuilding mode, and their three first-round picks could play a major role in that process. That’s their thinking after taking forwards Sean Monahan, Emile Poirier and Morgan Klimchuk in Sunday’s NHL draft. General manager Jay Feaster had opportunities to trade picks for immediate help, but it wasn’t difficult to resist that. “At the end of the day for us there were guys that they were a year or two years away from unrestricted free agency,” Feaster said. “We’re committed to the rebuild, and we talked about it as a management group and said it’s not the right way to go about the rebuild in terms of moving the picks for guys that are going to be UFAs.”

Monahan, the centre Calgary took sixth overall, is most likely the closest of the three to being NHLready. Feaster has already had conversations with Monahan about making the team next season. “I want to play. That’s my goal,” Monahan said. “I want to play this year, and I think I can. I want to make an impact and I want to be a reliable player out there, too.” The Flames could use reliable players after trading winger Jarome Iginla and defenceman Jay Bouwmeester last season. He’s interested in trading Michael Cammalleri, too, and younger players are expected to fill those holes. Monahan was the captain and leading scorer of the Ottawa 67’s of the Ontario Hockey League, who went 16-46. He knows a thing or two about being part of a rebuilding effort like what’s going on in Calgary. “I’m looking forward to it,” he said. “It’s going to be a challenge and I’m always up for a challenge. I think I’m going to be a part of that team and help that team win, so it’s going to be a fun time.” Feaster mentioned a desire to add more size throughout the organization, and the Flames did so in the six-foot-two Monahan, six-foot-one Poirier, the 22nd pick. Talent, not size, was the focus.

“We didn’t base anything on any of these three guys on size,” director of scouting Tod Button said. “Size was an added bonus. They’re all good-size kids. They all play the game properly. They’re not shy, they play in traffic. So that’s more important to us than their actual physical stature.” Demeanour may have been a factor, too. Monahan and Klimchuk, the 28th pick, have proven to be focused individuals. “They’re serious about being pro hockey players and for sure that helps,” Button said. “We don’t look at it as a negative if a kid has a little bit more of a loose side, but for sure Sean and Morgan are serious about where they want to go and what they want to be when they get older.” There’s not much about the Flames that will be old next season, unless Feaster is unable to trade Cammalleri and goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff decides to return. Right now the idea seems to be getting younger, and they did so with their first-rounders. “I think 20 minutes after the first round everybody comes away satisfied,” Button said. “I don’t think you’ll find anybody that says, ’I can’t believe we took him.’ We’re really excited.”

Schneider deal doesn’t open Oilers look to Nurse to ride trade floodgates at draft shotgun over young stars THE CANADIAN PRESS NEWARK, N.J. — Having been around the block once or twice in his 25 seasons as the New Jersey Devils’ general manager, not much surprises Lou Lamoriello. That includes being able to acquire goaltender Cory Schneider from the Vancouver Canucks at the NHL draft. What surprised a lot of his colleagues was that not much trade action followed that deal. There was plenty of chatter, but not a whole of moves got made. “My initial thought is that you generally default to no deal rather than a bad deal,” said Edmonton Oilers general manager Craig MacTavish, who had numerous conversations with the Philadelphia Flyers’ Paul Holmgren. “I know there’s going to be more deals now that you can take back a little bit of salary. We’re hopeful that we can get some things done but maybe not as optimistic.” Sunday’s draft was expected to include a flurry of activity due in part to the salary cap dropping and teams wanting to make a variety of changes. The Stanley Cup-champion Chicago Blackhawks were the busiest team, sending right-winger Michael Frolik to the Winnipeg Jets and centre David Bolland to the Toronto Maple Leafs. Tyler Kennedy went from the Pittsburgh Penguins to the San Jose Sharks, Cal Clutterbuck went from the Minnesota Wild to the New York Islanders for Nino Niederreiter, and Jamie McBain went from the Carolina Hurricanes to the Buffalo Sabres for Andrej Sekera. That’s not a quiet day, but it hardly counts as a flurry. MacTavish joked that he and his colleagues were being “somewhat unreasonable.” Forget even about established players. Only four first-round picks changed hands. “As happens very often, and in particular the first round, if you have a decent position you’re very reluctant to give that position up,” Ottawa Senators GM Bryan Murray said. “The price was quite substantial. I had a couple offers to move down as

the draft was going on. We felt there was a player there that we didn’t want to pass on, so we didn’t move backwards. It’s totally understood it’s tough to move.” With three first-rounders at his disposal, Calgary Flames GM Jay Feaster was involved in plenty of talks. It wasn’t in his best interest to make a major trade, and he wasn’t alone. “There were a lot of deals that could’ve been done,” Feaster said. “There were players in play. There were a lot of things that we had been in on and discussions that we had, and so we knew what was happening around us.” Not much happened until commissioner Gary Bettman announced that the Devils had sent the No. 9 pick to the Canucks for Schneider. But that move was a long time coming. “For the last year we’ve explored every option that we could possibly have, and things were heating up this week and we just felt we couldn’t go any longer with the situation we were in,” Canucks GM Mike Gillis said. “For our organization and for our fans and for all of our sponsors we had to do something to get this situation resolved, and this is the best opportunity we had.” It seemed to be the opportunity everyone around the league had been waiting for. But 11 of the 16 trades included just picks. The Jets inquired about Bolland, who was traded less than a week after he scored the Cup-winning goal, but the Leafs addressed a need down the middle. Toronto GM Dave Nonis insisted he wouldn’t make change for the sake of it and held to that. But that doesn’t mean Nonis or his fellow general managers expect a semi-quiet draft day to set the trend for the summer as there are more needs that need to be filled. “It’s a start,” he said. “We think there’s some more things that we hope to do. Whether we can accomplish those between now and September remains to be seen, but we’re going to try to remain active and see if there’s more changes we can make.”

SERGEI BOBROVSKY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS COLUMBUS, Ohio — What Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen had called “a big piece of the puzzle” fell into place Monday when the club signed goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky to a two-year contract extension. The 24-year-old Russian, recipient of the Vezina Trophy as the

NHL’s top goalie this past season, could have become a restricted free agent this week. Terms of the deal were not disclosed by the team. Bobrovsky was paid $1.750 million last season. The Columbus Dispatch reported that the new deal was for $5.625 million per year. “I’m very happy to be a Columbus Blue Jacket,” Bobrovsky said.

PET OF THE WEEK

NHL DRAFT BIG DEFENCEMAN TAKEN IN FIRST ROUND, TO BE IMPACT PLAYER FOR TEAM BY THE CANADIAN PRESS NEWARK, N.J. — The Edmonton Oilers have lots of young guns. Now they have someone to ride shotgun over that young talent. The Oilers opted for size and attitude in taking Sault Ste. Marie defenceman Darnell Nurse seventh overall in Sunday’s NHL draft. “I really believe that this guy’s going to have an incredible impact on our team,” GM Craig MacTavish said. MacTavish tried hard to swing a deal but failed other than rearranging some lower-round picks. The Oilers left the Prudential Center with 10 drafted players, but no one by trade. “My deal rate per spoken word is extremely low right now,” said the GM, who says he will continue talks with other teams in a bid to improve the Oilers. Still he emerged content with what Nurse gives a young, talented squad that features first-rounders Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Taylor Hall, Nail Yakupov and Jordan Eberle. “He really gives us an element that I feel we’re sorely lacking,” said MacTavish. “He’s a guy that over time — we’ll be patient with him — is going to provide us with the toughness. And he’s the guy that will ride shotgun for a lot of our first overall picks, our skilled players, for a lot of years.” The son of former CFL wide receiver Richard Nurse and nephew of former NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb, Nurse is six foot three and working hard to push his weight over 200 pounds. Nurse was the second defenceman drafted, behind Seth Jones who went fourth overall to the Nashville Predators. The 18-year-old from Hamilton is a prickly player who refuses to back down. “I think I have a little bit of jam in my game,” he said. “I’ve always had it. Like I said, it’s better to give than receive. It creates a lot more room for yourself in the corners. Obviously with that said I’m going to get challenged based on the

way I play, but I’ve never been scared to step up.” Nurse had 12 goals and 29 assists for the Ontario Hockey League’s Greyhounds. He also had six fights. “I wish I could describe how excited I am, especially when you watch these guys on TV and see how gifted they are and how much of an impact they have,” said Nurse after being taken seventh overall. “For me this is a dream come true. I’m just going to work so that one day hopefully I have the opportunity to play alongside them.” Edmonton had also been looking at winger Valeri Nichushkin, but opted for Nurse. Nichushkin went three picks later to Dallas. “It came right down to the draft floor,” MacTavish said of the decision between the two. The Oilers traded their secondround pick (37th overall) to the Los Angeles Kings for a second-round pick (57th), third-round pick (88th) and fourth-round pick (96th). With the 56th pick, obtained earlier from Anaheim, the Oilers chose Blainville-Boisbriand centre/right-winger Marc-Olivier Roy. The six-foot, 175-pound Roy was delighted to join the promising crew of young Oilers, confessing he follows many of Edmonton’s players via Twitter. “A lot of young players, superstars,” he said, calling Nugent-Hopkins one of his favourite players. He said he prided himself as a wellrounded player who can play in all situations. Edmonton then traded the 57th pick to St. Louis for picks in the third round (No. 83), fourth (No. 94 and 113). The third round produced Russian forwards Bogdan Yakimov and Anton Slepyshev, followed by Vancouver Giants winger Jackson Houck, London Knights centre Kyle Platzer and Victoria midget forward Aidan Muir in the fourth. Winger Evan Campbell of Langley of the BCHL was taken in the fifth round, followed by Everett Silvertips defenceman Ben Betker in the sixth. The seventh round offered up forward Gregory Chase of the Calgary Hitmen.

B4 RED DEER ADVOCATE Tuesday, July 2, 2013

O’Connell scores home win with TKO BY GREG MEACHEM ADVOCATE SPORTS EDITOR Cam O’Connell insisted he was in no hurry to end his scrap with Mexican lightweight Luis Arjona Friday night at the Sheraton Hotel Exhibition Hall. “In my last fight I ran in hard. This fight . . . I wanted to plant my feet early. I wanted to box,” said O’Connell, after defeating Arjona by technical knockout in the main event of the three-fight professional portion of the Tuff Glove card. The Red Deer boxer felt that he could take his time, that Arjona was unlikely to hurt him anytime soon. “I knew as soon as he threw his first punch and it came over, that it was just a matter of time,” said O’Connell, who improved his pro record to 4-0-1 after dropping Arjona twice, the decisive uppercut coming with just a few seconds left in the third round. “The straight ones always beat the round ones. He got me a couple of times while I was throwing round ones and I heard my coach (Doug Bolianatz) telling me to straighten them out.” After a close opening round, O’Connell realized he had to set the pace and try to end the bout.

Bolianatz had a suggestion. “He told me to stick the jab,” said O’Connell. “I knew the jab was working but sometimes I don’t believe in my jab as much as I should. I should have thrown it more. I was landing but I wanted a knockout and Cam O’Connell you can’t knock someone out with a jab. I knew it was making his head go back but I also knew I wasn’t going to knock him out with it.” Naturally, O’Connell was the crowd favourite in his first pro fight at home. “It was amazing. I could take the voices from the crowd and put a face to everyone,” he insisted. “Every time I landed a punch I’d hear a ‘yeah’ from one side and it was my wife. From another side, it was Arash Usmanee’s little brother (Sleeman). It was perfect.” His performance wasn’t perfect, yet it was impressive considering he’s still learning the pro side of the fight game. “I’m happy with it, but I’m negative

with myself, that’s how I build myself to be better. There were punches I shouldn’t have thrown, like the overhand right. That was sloppy,” said O’Connell. “I shouldn’t have waited a round before throwing an uppercut. “This was my fifth (pro) fight and I just keep working at it. This is the beginning of a good thing. Red Deer came out tonight and supported me 100 per cent. I hope next time it’s busier with a lot more people, but I love fighting for Red Deer. It’s a fighting city. I felt the support and I loved it.” O’Connell is set to fight again in September in Edmonton. “They (promoters) are saying that I’ll be fighting a European,” he said. “Hopefully that will be a good one and then I hear talk that I could get a Canadian title shot sometime soon.” Eventually, O’Connell wants to emulate the level of former Red Deer Boxing Club teammate Arash Usmanee, who is set to fight Argeniz Mendez for a world lightweight championship in August. “I want to follow in his steps and get to the top, although at a bit younger age,” said O’Connell, who at 24 is seven years younger than the Montreal-based Usmanee. “But I want to continue to box out of

Red Deer. As long as I get the support here I can go to training camps in the states or wherever I have to go.” In the co-main event of the pro card, Tennessee fighter Kevin Council (4-0) defeated Ted Reno of Calgary (3-7-2) by unanimous decision in a four-round junior middleweight bout. Earlier, Polish-born welterweight Lukasz Wierzbicki of Calgary dominated Vancouver’s Antonio Dos Santos (27) while making his pro debut in front of roughly 20 vocal supporters. In the main event of the amateur portion of the card, Red Deer’ Brian Samuel lost a unanimous decision to provincial 65 kg elite open champion Devin Reti of Calgary. In the first amateur bout of the evening, provincial 50 kg junior C champ Lester Cudillio of Red Deer gave up at least four inches in height to Wolfgang Pederson of Medicine Hat, but delivered some devastating punches and forced a third-round stoppage. Provincial champion Cole Farwell of Red Deer then defeated Danny Vo of Edmonton by unanimous decision in a 65 kg youth bout, and Robbie Cusine of Edmonton followed with a split decision victory over Gwyn Lewis of Calgary in a 65 kg elite open bout. gmeachem@reddeeradvocate.com

Sides close to Williams ousted from Wimbledon sending NHL to Olympics FIVE-TIME CHAMPION’S WINNING STREAK ENDS AT 34 MATCHES

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK — NHL players are just a slap shot away from returning to the Olympics next year. While a deal hasn’t been reached yet between the NHL, the union and the International Ice Hockey Federation, to send the league’s players to Sochi, a long meeting Monday pushed the sides much closer to an agreement. “Things are moving along,” NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said. Bettman, union leader Donald Fehr and IIHF President Rene Fasel met for more than five hours Monday at league headquarters to work on a deal that would allow NHL players to compete at the 2014 games in Russia. This would be the fifth Olympics for the NHL. Not everything has been agreed to and the various sides need to meet internally to sign off on any pact. Still, Bettman called Monday’s session a “constructive meeting,” adding there are still “some I’s to dot and T’s to cross.” “I think it’s fair to say that we’re not quite ready to announce it’s done,” Bettman said. Fasel headed to the airport following the meeting and planned to get together with various international groups beginning on Tuesday. Fehr will brief the players during multiday union executive board meetings next week. “We had a very constructive meeting,” Fasel said. “I am very happy and pleased. I have to go back also to my federation and to other national federations, especially back to the IOC, to make a report. I am confident that we will have a solution at the end.” When pressed for a timeline to get a deal done, Bettman responded with an emphatic, “Soon. Very soon.” “We’re on a compact schedule,” Bettman added. “Everybody is working very hard and we seem to be pulling the oars in the same direction.” The biggest challenge the NHL faces every time the Olympics come is the need to stop the hockey season for several weeks in order for its players to go. That is even more of a factor this time because the Olympics are taking place one year after a lengthy lockout wiped out nearly half of the hockey regular season. While the Olympic exposure is good for the NHL, breaking up another season in February is hardly ideal. Bettman declined to get into specifics of what still needs to be worked out. But it was certainly a positive to see all three men standing side by side outside the NHL offices — a far cry from last year during the lockout when Bettman and Fehr were on opposite sides and held separate news conferences on the street. Fehr agreed with Bettman this time that only smaller details have to be ironed out before a final deal can be reached. “From my end, while we’ve made a lot of progress on a lot of issues, there are a few I dots and T crosses to do yet,” Fehr said.

STORY FROM B1

DRAFT: Want to prove them wrong The first round saw London Knights forward Max Domi, son of former Leafs enforcer Tie Domi, go to the Phoenix Coyotes and Windsor winger Kerby Rychel, son of former NHLer Warren Rychel, taken by Columbus. Anthony Mantha, grandson of four-time Stanley Cup champion Andre Pronovost, also went in the first round to Detroit. Others names of note called later at the podium included Tyler Bertuzzi (nephew of Todd Bertuzzi), Brendan Burke (son of Sean Burke), Cole Cassels (son of Andrew Cassels), Greg Chase (son of Kelly Chase), Eric Comrie (half-brother to NHLers Mike and Paul Comrie), Ryan Fitzgerald (son of Tom Fitzgerald), Peter Quenneville (second cousin of Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville) and Jordan Subban (brother to NHLer P.K. Subban and 2012 draft pick Malcolm Subban) and Adam Tambellini (son of Steve Tambellini and brother to Jeff Tambellini), Jones took his slight slip down the draft ladder with grace. But asked if it might motivate him, the Portland Winterhawk didn’t miss a beat. “Yeah, well I’m competitive, I have

LONDON — Serena Williams sounded far less surprised than almost everyone else that her 34-match winning streak ended in the fourth round at Wimbledon. Williams, seeded No. 1 and a five-time Wimbledon champion, led 3-0 and 4-2 in the final set against 23rd-seeded Sabine Lisicki on Monday and in those circumstances it was a shock that she could not close it out. “Come on, guys, let’s get with it. She’s excellent,” Williams said. “She’s not a pushover.” Williams had gone unbeaten — and generally looking unbeatable — for 4 ½ months, until she lost the last four games and was beaten 6-2, 1-6, 6-4. The demise of the longest winning streak in women’s tennis since 2000 was fitting for this unpredictable Wimbledon, where seedings and pedigree have meant nothing whatsoever. “Didn’t play the big points good enough,” Williams said. “I didn’t do what I do best.” Williams was passive in crunch time and essentially let Lisicki dictate points quickly with big serves, powerful returns and pinpoint groundstrokes. The German compiled a 10-7 edge in aces, a 35-25 lead in winners, and broke Williams five times. Two days before facing Williams, Lisicki insisted she did not consider it an impossible task. “You have to play your best to beat her, that’s for sure,” Lisicki said Saturday, after advancing to the fourth round, “but, you know, everybody’s (a) human being.” Her play was as confident as her words, especially at the outset Monday — when Lisicki won five games in a row — and her nerveless finish. The German’s game is built for grass. A mediocre 16-15 at the other three Grand Slam tournaments, Lisicki is 17-4 at the All England Club. She reached the semifinals at Wimbledon in 2011, and is into her fourth quarterfinal, coincidentally beating the reigning French Open champion every time: Svetlana Kuznetsova in 2009, Li Na in 2011, Maria Sharapova in 2012, and Williams in 2013. “Good omen,” Lisicki said. “I went into the match feeling that I could win.” Not many others felt that way. After all, Williams owns 16 major championships, and entering

a competitive nature. And I get that from my parents,” he said. “You definitely want to prove them wrong. You definitely want to show them why they should have picked you. That’s not my only goal next year but it’s definitely on my list.” Jones, 18, has ties to Colorado. He took up hockey as a kid there while his father, Popeye Jones, was playing for the Denver Nuggets. The six-foot, 182-pound MacKinnon, who does not turn 18 until Sept. 1, is mature beyond his years on and off the ice. Still he admitted he kind of lost it when he got on stage after being drafted by the Avs. “I kind of blacked out for a second, but it’s so cool,” he said. “They have such a promising team and such good young talent, and hopefully I can be a part of that.” He led the Halifax Mooseheads to the Memorial Cup, topping the tournament in scoring with 13 points (seven goals and six assists), including a hat trick in the championship game, and was chosen tournament MVP. The native of Cole Harbour, N.S., scored 32 goals and added 43 assists in 44 regular season games. “What makes Nathan stand out is that he has a real quickness with his read and react: his hockey sense, how he sees the ice and his vision,” said Dan Marr, director of NHL Central Scouting. “That is something special in a player. He is continuing to physically ma-

Sabine Lisicki of Germany reacts after beating Serena Williams of the United States in a Women’s singles match at the All England Lawn Tennis Championships in Wimbledon, London, Monday. Monday, the 31-year-old American had won 46 of 48 matches this season, and 77 of 80 since the start of Wimbledon in 2012. “You cannot be perfect, every match, all year,” said Patrick Mouratoglou, the French coach who began working with Williams last year. “She won 34 matches in a row. It has to stop one day. It has to happen. And it happened today.” Only one day into the tournament’s second week, Williams joined quite a list of those already out: Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Victoria Azarenka and Sharapova — all major title winners, all former No. 1s, all gone by the end of Day 3. Williams’ departure made Sloane Stephens the lone American singles player left. The 20-year-old Stephens’ first quarterfinal at the All England Club was to come Tuesday against No. 15 Marion Bartoli of France, the 2007 runner-up. The other quarterfinals are No. 8 Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic, the 2011 Wimbledon champion, against No. 20 Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium. No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland, who lost to Williams in last year’s final, against No. 6 Li of China; and Lisicki against 46th-ranked Kaia Kanepi of Estonia. Kanepi reached her fifth Grand

ture, but already he’s got a lot of grit in his game and he is a competitive player.” Drouin, who was a linemate of MacKinnon with the Mooseheads, was delighted to land in Tampa. “I think it’s a good fit. They’ve got a young prospect, great old players, too, that are experienced, and I think it’s the best fit for me.” Barkov has been playing in the Finnish Elite League since he was 16. “I played already two years against men in the Finnish Elite League, very good league and very good players, and I think it helps me very much,” said the confident Finn, whose father played hockey for Russia. The selection of MacKinnon and Drouin marked the first time since 1983 that two players from the QMJHL were among the first three players chosen in the draft. Sylvain Turgeon went second that year to Hartford, ahead of Pat LaFontaine in third to the Islanders. NHL commissioner Gary Bettman got a rude reception as the draft opened. “Good afternoon,” said Bettman, almost drowned out by boos as the draft began at 3 p.m. ET. “I love your energy.” Bettman took time out to mourn the passing of well-respected player agent Don Baizley, which slowed the jeering. But only temporarily. It’s been a tough week for commissioners. David Stern got the Bronx cheer every time he stepped to the po-

Slam quarterfinal, and second at Wimbledon, with a 7-6 (6), 7-5 victory over 19-year-old Laura Robson, the first British woman in the fourth round at the All England Club since 1998. Robson, like others, took note of Monday’s most significant outcome. “I thought for sure Serena was going to win the tournament,” Robson said, expressing a popular sentiment. On Wednesday, the men’s quarterfinals on the draw’s top half are No. 1 Novak Djokovic of Serbia, a six-time Grand Slam titlist and the only remaining past Wimbledon winner, against No. 7 Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic, the 2010 runner-up; and No. 4 David Ferrer of Spain against No. 8 Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina, the 2009 U.S. Open champion. On the bottom half, it will be No. 2 Andy Murray of Britain, the London Olympic gold medallist and 2012 U.S. Open winner, against 54th-ranked Fernando Verdasco of Spain; and No. 24 Jerzy Janowicz against his Davis Cup teammatel, 130th-ranked Lukasz Kubot, in a match between the first two Polish men to reach a Grand Slam quarterfinal since 1980. One will give the country its first male semifinalist at a major tournament. “We hugged. We are happy,” Janowicz said. “Magical.”

dium during the NBA draft in Brooklyn. After working through their own anti-commissioner feelings, Devils fans chanted “Marty’s Better” in honour of Martin Brodeur as Colorado coach Patrick Roy took the stage. Calgary was the first Canadian team to pick, taking Ottawa 67s forward Sean Monahan sixth overall. Edmonton then took Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds defenceman Darnell Nurse. Vancouver, selecting ninth, chose London Knights centre Bo Horvat while Winnipeg took Prince Albert defenceman Joshua Morrissey with the 13th pick. Ottawa used the 17th selection to pick up Edmonton Oil Kings forward Curtis Lazar and Toronto, with the 21st pick, chose Rimouski centre Frederik Gauthier. The Flames, who had three picks in the first round, took Gatineau winger Emile Poirier 22nd and Regina winger Morgan Klimchuk 28th. The Canucks, with their second pick of the first round, chose Medicine Hat forward Hunter Shinkaruk 24th overall, ahead of Montreal taking U.S. under-18 winger Michael McCarron at No. 25. The 30 players selected in the first round were born in seven different countries: Canada (17), United States (four), Austria (two), Finland (two), Russia (two), Sweden (two) and Switzerland (one). Canada led the way with 96 of the 211 players chosen. Some 57 were born in the U.S. and 23 in Sweden.

Catch phrases can be damaging to a golf swing “Keep your head down!” “You are lifting your head!” “Keep your eyes on the ball!” If you have played a little or a lot of golf, I can guarantee that you have heard all three of these phrases — catch phrases that deSCOTT scribe and — to BERGDAHL some degree — INSTRUCTION explain what you need to do to ensure that you hit the golf ball with consistency. It is true that in many cases golfers tend to lift their heads. This is what the golf industry refers to as vertical management. It is extremely important that you maintain the height that you started with until after you have made contact with the ball. Once contact has been made, the momentum that you have created will pull you up to your natural height (if you swing in a relaxed fashion) and into your finish position. The truth of the matter is that those catch phrases that golfers tend to throw out (although true in some cases) can be very damaging to the golfer. For example, if a golfer is, in fact, lifting his/her head (this happens primarily in the backswing) then he/she will generally make inconsistent contact with the ball. Inconsistent contact with the ball can happen in many different ways such as a loss of distance, topping or thinning the ball, poor direction, etc. The bottom line is that lifting your head will cause poor contact, therefore creating frustration. Golfers, being the insightful, caring and helpful people that they are, will tend to offer assistance in any way that they can. This assistance generally comes with an overview of what they notice you are doing wrong during the swing. In most cases (based on feedback from my students) this offering comes in the form of “you are lifting your head!” The natural tendency of all golfers when they are told that they are lifting their head is to ensure that their head does not lift. Therefore, when they set up to their ball they naturally tilt their head down attempting to ensure their

Lakewood Golf pro Scott Bergdahl explains why lifting the head in the golf swing is not a good idea. head does not lift. Tilting your head down at the address position seems logical, as starting with your head down will ensure that it does not lift throughout the swing. Although in theory correct, setting up in this position will actually cause you to lift your head. The problem with this is when you start with your head down at the address position, you lose the clearance or space between your chin and your chest. This is important as you need space under your chin for your right shoulder (for left-handed golfers; opposite is true for right-handed golfers) to make a full shoulder turn into your backswing. If you have no space for your shoulder to move under your chin in the backswing, then you will lift (raising your head). In many cases, if you lift

Park rolls to U.S. Open win and third straight major title SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. — Inbee Park understood the meaning of winning the U.S. Women’s Open much better the second time around. She appreciated, too, the magnitude of this particular accomplishment. On Sunday, Park became the first player in the modern era to win the first three majors of the year. Babe Zaharias did it in 1950 when there were only three to enter. Now there are five. “I didn’t expect myself being in this kind of position, breaking some kind of record that hasn’t been broken for 50 years,” Park said. “I never dreamed of myself doing that.” The world’s topranked player finished at 8 under to win by four strokes. Her 2-over 74 in the final round was more than enough, with Sebonack’s trying conditions keeping any rivals from making a run. Only three players were under par for the tournament. Fellow South Korean I.K. Kim also shot 74 for her second runner-up finish at a major. Ahead by four strokes at the start of the round, Park birdied the ninth and 10th holes to extend her lead. She has won six times already this year, including three straight tournaments. Park added to another historic U.S. Women’s Open victory in 2008, when she became the event’s youngest champion at age 19. “I didn’t know what was going on at that time,” Park said. “I played very good golf then, but I didn’t know what I was playing for, and that was just my first win. It was a great championship then, but now I think I really appreciate more and I really know what this means.” So Yeon Ryu shot 72 to finish third at 1 under. South Korean players took the top three spots and have won the last five majors. Ryu and Na Yeon

Choi, the last two U.S. Women’s Open champs, sprayed Park with champagne after she made her final putt on the 18th green. With lashing wind and devilish greens, Sebonack was a classically troublesome U.S. Women’s Open course. And once Park built a lead, nobody could mount a charge. She certainly wasn’t going to make enough mistakes to come back to the field. Park had just 10 bogeys and no double bogeys in four rounds. She predicted Saturday that shooting even par in the final round would be enough, and she sure was right. All of four players were under par Sunday — though that was still more than the third round, when only Park achieved it. Kim birdied No. 2 to pull within three strokes; she couldn’t claw closer. And when she bogeyed the fourth hole, the deficit was back to four shots.

Haas gets comfortable win at Congressional BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BETHESDA, Md. — Bill Haas made the long walk across a makeshift bridge and under the grandstands to the 18th green for the trophy presentation, high-fiving kids along the railing and raising his cap to thousands of fans who cheered as they saw him coming. His victory Sunday in the AT&T National was even sweeter when he compared it with all the times he failed. “As many times as I’ve choked and hit bad shots and I’ve been nervous and it hasn’t worked out — I was feeling all those things today — and to hit good, quality golf shots down the stretch is such a good feeling,” Haas said. “I wish I could explain it. It’s amazing.” His golf spoke volumes. Haas pulled away from a crowd of contenders with three straight birdies, two good pars and one good hop. It led to a 5-under 66, giving him a three-shot win at Congressional over Roberto Castro and putting him into distinguished company on two levels. Haas has won at least one PGA Tour event in each of the last four years, joining Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Justin Rose. And he kept the pedigree of champions at the AT&T National on a day when a half-dozen players were trying to win their first PGA Tour event. In the seven-year history of the tournament, Rose was the lowest-ranked player to win. He was No. 35 when he won at Aronimink in 2010. Haas started the week at No. 29.

Bill Haas reacts after winning the AT&T National golf tournament at Congressional Country Club, Sunday, in Bethesda, Md. He made only one bogey, making good on his pledge Saturday to clean up his card after a third round that included a triple bogey on the 11th hole. As many as six players had a share of the lead at some point until Haas rolled in a 10-foot birdie putt on No. 8. Worried about a splotch of mud on his ball, he hit his approach to just inside 12 feet for birdie on the par-5 ninth, and then hit a 5-iron to 10 feet for another birdie on the 10th. Haas led by at least two shots the entire back nine, though he never allowed himself to think about winning until he stood over a 3-foot par putt on the 18th hole

and realized he had three putts to win. The 31-year-old won for the fifth time in his career, and this was the first one with Tiger Woods on the property — not to play, but to hand out the trophy. Woods sat out this week with an elbow injury and won’t play again until the British Open, though he was impressed with what he saw. “He played beautifully today,” Woods said. “He handled his business through the tougher stretch of holes and pulled away.” Castro, part of a four-way tie for the lead at the start of the final round, made Haas work for it. “He didn’t make any mistakes, and the birdies on 9 and 10 were big,” Castro said after his 69. The other leaders fell away. Andres Romero had a double bogey on the fourth hole and shot 75. James Driscoll didn’t make a birdie in his round of 74. Jordan Spieth, the 19-year-old from Texas who needs a win to become a PGA Tour member and be eligible for the FedEx Cup playoffs, started his day by holing out from a fairway bunker for eagle and chipping in for birdie to tie for the lead. He dropped a shot at No. 11 — the hardest hole at Congressional — about the time Haas was on his critical run of birdies. Spieth had a 69 and finished sixth, pushing his earnings for the year over $1.1 million. Graham DeLaet of Weyburn, Sask., closed with a 69, and finished eight shots back at 280. David Hearn of Brantford., Ont had a 71, to finish at 286. Ottawa’s Brad Fritsch had a 74, to wind up at 292.

your head, your eyes tend to lose sight of the ball. The end result of keeping your head down will be even more inconsistent contact, thereby possibly causing you more frustration than before. In previous articles, I have discussed the swing motion in both the backswing and the downswing. When writing about the swing motion, I am referring to the function of the body. The fact is that the body simply rotates in the back and through the swing. It is true that there has to be weight transfer to your back foot and then your front foot during the swing, but it is how we transfer this weight that determines whether you move laterally or rotationally. The bottom line is that the function of your hips during the golf swing is to

rotate. If your hips do not rotate during the backswing then you cause a swing flaw known as a hip sway (the lateral motion of your hips). If your hips do not rotate in the downswing, then you cause a different swing flaw known as a hip slide (a lateral motion of your leading hip towards the target). Lateral movement rather than rotational movement of the hips in the downswing will also cause what is referred to as early extension. Early extension is essentially the straightening of the back in the downswing or is often referred to as “lifting your head.” This happens when the hips do not rotate in the downswing and therefore moves towards the ball. This action creates all sorts of contact issues, but the end result will be inconsistent contact with a loss of power and direction. There are many reasons why early extension may happen. Assessing the swing flaw is the first step; understanding the cause of the swing flaw is how we go about repairing it and ultimately ensuring your body rotates properly though impact. In some cases it may simply be knowledge or a lack thereof. Many golfers pick up the golf club and begin swinging the best way they know how. We tend to simulate a motion that we see on television or by watching our friends and family. Regardless of whether you have had formal training or not, if you are not getting the results that you desire, then it may be time to consult your local golf professional for assistance. Your teaching professional is trained to develop your golf swing so that your body works as efficiently as possible. We are also trained to determine your body’s limitations to specific physical movements. If your body does not move in a specific way, it is up to your teaching professional to determine whether it is knowledge, practice or a physical limitation that will not allow you to make the efficient movement required to send the ball in the correct direction. If you have the desire to play better golf and would like to get more out of your game then be sure to consult your local CPGA golf professional. Hope you all had a great Canada Day long weekend and enjoyed the wonderful weather. Play well, and have a great week. Scott Bergdahl is the head professional at Lakewood Golf Resort

Having a hens-on experience PURPLE MARTIN PRESENTATION York University researcher Kevin Fraser will deliver a presentation on Alberta purple martins using geolocators to track their routes and winter habits on Wednesday. Fifteen purple martins were banded for a research project on migration patterns using the geolocators, a relatively new conservation tool last summer. The lecture is open to the public and will take place at the Ellis Bird Farm Visitor Centre starting at 7 p.m. Fraser will also be at the farm on Wednesday and Thursday deploying additional geolocators on Ellis Bird Farm birds. The public is also welcome to stop by between 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. to watch the team at work. For more information, call 403885-4477.

BY CRYSTAL RHYNO ADVOCATE STAFF Chickens are not the average household pet but at least one Morrisroe family is welcoming six of the feathered animals into their backyard. The Cundict children – Elizabeth, Katherine, Tom – wanted a dog but their parents Mark and Joanne said no way because of the amount of work involved in caring for the dog. So when the siblings heard the City of Red Deer was extending its urban chicken pilot project, the children went back to their parents with another proposal. “I thought it would be a lot cooler than having a cat or dog,” said Elizabeth Cundict, 13. “They are a productive pet. You take care of them and they give you eggs.” Joanne Cundict said it seemed like a neat project that they could turn into a learning project for the entire family. In May, they attended Backyard Chickens 101 Workshop, an event in Red Deer put on by the Canadian Liberated Urban Chicken Klub (CLUCK). Although she grew up on a farm, Joanne said they learned a lot from the workshop and from her children who continue to teach them about chickens that they never knew. There are 40 homes with up to six chickens participating in the formal pilot which runs until March 31, 2014. At the end of the pilot, the city will consider options for allowing or disallowing urban chickens including a bylaw. The Cundict family purchased six baby chicks - three orpingtons, one australorp and two cross breeds shortly after

Chicks need to be kept warm so the family has been using a heat lamp in their garage to keep the little ones toasty. Joanne said the hens do not start laying eggs until six months but they wanted her children to learn about the whole process of raising chickens. The finishing touches were

put on the backyard coop over the weekend. The chickens were expected to move in their home over the long weekend. “We grew up on a farm,” said Joanne. “It’s nice to have our own eggs. The most important thing is we will know where our eggs come from.” She said the eggs will be white and brown which will be

Long time bingo hall closes its doors BY CRYSTAL RHYNO ADVOCATE STAFF Joe and Grace Brown arrive early to secure the same table at the Cannery Row Bingo hall where the couple play at least once a day. Grace arranges her dabbers, tea and bingo cards while Joe sets up his own station directly across from his wife of 54 years. Grace, 75, laughs because Joe misses the numbers sometimes because he is not paying attention. But it’s okay, she says, because they are not there for the big money. “It passes the time,” said Joe, 76. “If we break even it’s a good day.” The bingo enthusiasts have played a game or two in every Canadian province and American state over the last 21 years. When they are vacationing, they always ensure there’s a bingo game close by.

Hospice society cuts dance fundraiser, changes focus Red Deer Hospice Society has a new fundraising focus that does not include hosting Celebrity Dance-Off competitions. Last week the society’s board announced it will put more emphasis into increasing planned giving and legacy donation programs and reduce its focus on large fundraising events. The board made the decision after careful assessment of the society’s time and staff resources to best balance effort and return. About $300,000 was raised

at the second annual dance-off held in March through ticket sales and raffles. Nearly 1,000 people attended the event. The 2012 dance-off netted $180,000. The board thanked everyone — organizers, dancers, dance instructors, supporters, staff and volunteers — who made them so memorable. Details of the society’s 201314 fundraising program will be released soon. Red Deer Hospice is a nonprofit that provides compassionate care for terminal patients and support for family and friends.

They have played at Cannery Row Bingo for about 15 years and used to travel from Rocky Mountain House to play late night bingo. In 2009, the couple celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary at the hall and bought cake for everyone. Cannery Row Bingo closed its doors on Sunday and now all charity groups will be under one roof at the Red Deer Bingo Centre (4946 53rd Ave). The Browns will now have to shift their daily bingo routine but it’s worth it because Grace says, “we just love it.” Manager Terisa Matjeka said overall it is a positive change and it will be a new beginning for a lot of staff. She said many patrons play at both halls already and others were upset about the change. Matjeka said some Cannery Row staff will work at the Bingo Centre which will give some continuity with the charity groups. On average 50 to 60 people tried their luck in one of the twice a day events at Cannery Row. Treena Hopkins, 37, has played bingo for 15 years at the hall. Hopkins plays both the electronic and traditional bingo about eight to 10 times a week. She said playing at Cannery Row is like playing with family. “It’s my freedom,” said Hopkins. “It’s the only thing I do to socialize and I volunteer a lot here. I am going to really miss that.” Doris Justus, also a regular at Cannery Row, played about once a week and usually brings her sister and sometimes friends. While she has won a bit here and there, Justus said there is always the chance of going home with a big pay day. Justus said she is sad the hall is closing but she is looking forward to trying her luck at the Red Deer Bingo Centre. The centre is open seven days a week with afternoon and evening games.

Face transplant patient comes out of the shadows ABANDONS LIFE AS A HERMIT, CELEBRATES CHANCE FOR A NEW BEGINNING BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BALTIMORE — In the 15 years between a shotgun blast that ravaged the bottom half of Richard Norris’ face and the face transplant that ended a hermit-like life for him, the man from rural southwest Virginia faced cruelty from strangers, fought addiction and contemplated suicide. But even if he could go back in time, he’s not sure he would erase the accident that left him severely disfigured. “Those 10 years of hell I lived through, it has given me such a wealth of knowledge,” Norris recently told The Associated Press, one of only two news outlets granted interviews since his transplant last year. “It’s unreal. It has put some of the best people in my life.” Now, at 38, he’s starting a new life: taking online classes in pursuit of a degree in information systems and contemplating a foundation to help defray future transplant patients’ everyday expenses during treatment. He also has been working with a photojournalist who just completed a book about his journey, titled “The Two Faces of Richard.” He hopes his story sends a message of hope to people in similar situations and encourages empathy in others. “I’ve heard all kinds of remarks,” he said. “A lot of them were really horrible.” After the 1997 accident at his home, Norris had no teeth, no nose and only part of his tongue. He was still able to taste but could not smell. When he went out in public, usually at night, he hid behind a hat and mask. Norris had dozens of surgeries to repair his face, but eventually reached the limits of what conventional surgery could do for him, said Dr. Eduardo Rodriguez, who performed some of those operations and later led the surgical team that performed Norris’ face transplant. Some parts of the anatomy, such as eyelids and lips, are just too complex to recreate, he noted. “You can create a semblance of something, but I can guarantee you it’s not normal by any means.” Just weeks after Norris was told by another doctor that there was little else that could be done for him, Rodriguez presented him with another option: a transplant. The doctor, who is head of plastic surgery at the University of Maryland Medical Center’s R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, had been following advancements in the face transplant field for years. An Office of

In this June 25, 2013 photo, Richard Norris, right, shows friend Andrew Kahle how to load line into a fly fishing rod at Norris’ home in Hillsville, Va. Norris, whose face was disfigured by a gunshot, spent 15 years as a recluse, but now the 38-year-old is doing things he never would have before. Naval Research grant for the purpose of helping wounded warriors made it possible for him and his team to attempt their first face transplant, an operation that previously had been performed by only two other centres in the United States. The world’s first partial face transplant was performed in France in 2005 on a woman who was mauled by her dog. Of the 27 other transplants that have followed, four recipients have died, and the survivors face a lifetime of immunosuppressant drugs, which can take a toll on their health. Unlike most organ transplant recipients, who need their surgeries to live, face transplant patients are risking death to eliminate a non-life-threatening condition, noted Dr. Mark Ehrenreich, the psychiatric consultant to Norris’ transplant team. Rodriguez says patients are well aware of the situation. “If you talk to these patients, they

will tell you it is worth the risk,” he said. The team carefully lays out all of the dangers for patients: Norris’ mother, Sandra, remembers Rodriguez saying there was a 50-50 chance her son would survive the surgery. “We looked at Richard and we told him we loved him the way he was and it didn’t matter to us, but it was his life,” she said. “That was what he wanted to do and we supported him.” Norris said he is humbled by the gift he received from the family of 21-yearold Joshua Aversano, who died after being struck by a minivan while crossing the street. The Maryland family, which agreed to donate his organs, declined to be interviewed by the AP. In a statement, the family said, “We are grateful Joshua’s legacy continues through the lives of the individuals he was able to save with gifts of organ and tissue donation.” Norris said he speaks to the family

regularly and keeps them updated on his life and health. Norris’ 36-hour transplant operation is still considered the most extensive ever conducted because it included transplantation of the teeth, upper and lower jaw, a portion of the tongue and all of the tissue from the scalp to the base of the neck, Rodriguez said. “The real main limitation ... is that patients are dependent on medication for life,” he said. The immunosuppressant medications carry risks for the patients, who don’t know how long the transplant will last. Rodriguez said if all goes well, a transplanted face could last 20 to 30 years. For Norris, who makes daily visual checks, the risk of rejection is never far from his mind. “Every day I wake up with that fear: Is this the day? The day I’m going to go into a state of rejection that is going to be so bad that the doctors can’t change it?”

Plane diverts to Edmonton with sick patient, tests indicate H7 flu been travelling extensively in recent weeks. Taylor says he did not know where the man was from in the United States. He travelled to China and from there to Singapore and India. The man became severely ill in India and apparently spent time in an intensive care unit in a hospital there. Taylor says he doesn’t know what city that occurred in or what illness led to his hospitalization. After his release from hospital, the man travelled to the United Arab Emirates, where he boarded a flight bound for San Francisco. While that flight was in the air, the man became ill and lost consciousness. The plane was diverted to Edmonton. Taylor says the man may have suffered a diabetic coma in flight. When he landed quarantine officers assessed the case and determined that the man’s symptoms did not indicate active influenza, Taylor says. Once the man was in hospital, he developed what appeared to be aspiration pneumonia — pneumonia caused by drawing in fluids to the lungs. An infectious diseases specialist at the hospital where he is being treated knew the man’s travel history and or-

The Public Health Agency of Canada says an American man who ended up in an Edmonton hospital tested positive for previous infection with an H7 influenza virus. Canada’s acting chief public health officer says the man is not currently ill with flu and therefore is not contagious. Dr. Gregory Taylor says, though, that the event is a reminder that viruses like the new H7N9 bird flu are only a plane ride away. The blood test used to diagnose the previous infection cannot determine the neuraminadase or N component of the virus with which the man was infected. But the infectious diseases specialist who treated him in Edmonton was on the lookout for H7N9 flu, which has infected 132 people in China this spring, killing at least 39 of them. The man had travelled in southern China in late May, though apparently not in a part of the country where human infections with H7N9 flu were recorded. “Could he have been infected with H7N9? Maybe.

But the blood tests turned up evidence of a past infection with H7 flu. “The reassuring thing is that the viral tests are all negative,” Taylor says. “Our understanding is he is improving and hopes to go home soon.” Taylor says the Public Health Agency has been liaising with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control on the case and the U.S. agency believes it is safe for the man to return to the United States. He says Canadian authorities are also notifying counterparts in countries where the man had travelled.

INTUIT SELLS FINANCIAL SERVICES UNIT FOR $1.03B AS IT FOCUSES ON CONSUMERS, SMALL BUSINESS’ BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK — Intuit is selling a division that provides software to financial institutions in a deal worth about $1.03 billion as it focuses on products for consumers and small businesses. Intuit Inc., based in Mountain View, Calif., makes TurboTaxe, QuickBooks and other personal finance software. The company is still paring back its business. It also said Monday that it wants to sell a division that serves the health care industry. The buyer of the financial services business, private equity firm Thoma Bravo, said Monday that it sees continued growth in mobile banking software. The new stand-alone company will provide a digital banking platform and mobile software to financial institutions. Based in Westlake Village, Calif., it employs 730 people in the U.S. and India. Intuit said it plans to use proceeds from the sale to speed up the repurchase of its stock. The all-cash deal, which remains subject to regulatory review, will likely close in the next few months. In fiscal 2012, the financial services and health businesses, excluding certain services that will stay with Intuit, generated about $320 million in revenue. They are expected to bring in $340 million this fiscal year, which runs through July. In the first nine months of Intuit’s fiscal year, revenue rose 8 per cent to $3.79 billion. Intuit’s stock rose $2.11, or 3.5 per cent, to close at $63.15 Monday. The shares had risen about 3 per cent in 2013.

Eurozone sets jobless record UNEMPLOYMENT AT RECORD 12.1 PER CENT IN MAY, QUARTER OF PEOPLE UNDER-25 OUT OF WORK BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LONDON — Unemployment across the 17 European Union countries that use the euro hit another all-time high in May after the previous months’ figures were revised down, official data showed Monday. Eurostat, the EU’s statistics office, said the eurozone’s unemployment rate rose 0.1 percentage point in May to the new alltime high of 12.1 per cent. That’s a new record for the region following the revisions. April’s original 12.2 per cent estimate is now amended to 12.0 per cent. The figures will make sobering reading for the region’s politicians as they gather in Berlin this week to tackle the problem of youth unemployment — nearly one in four people aged under-25 in the eurozone are out of work. Across the eurozone, there were 19.22 million people unemployed, 67,000 higher than the previous month — a closer look at the figures show that Italy was largely behind the increase. Even though the monthly rises outside of Italy were relatively modest, analysts still expect unemployment in the eurozone to continue to rise as the region remains stuck in recession that started in late 2011. Figures next month will show whether the eurozone’s economy continued to shrink in the second quarter of the year — the seventh quarter in a row. Even if the region escapes the grip of recession, unemployment

is likely to carry on rising for a while yet as the labour market is a lagging indicator of economic activity. In the U.S., for example, unemployment rose for a couple of years after the end of the recession there in 2009, before it started falling toward the current level of 7.6 per cent. Most economists think it will be a close call whether the eurozone’s recession comes to an end this quarter. While countries such as Germany have seen their economies prosper, those at the forefront of Europe’s debt crisis, such as Greece and Spain, continue to see economic contraction on a massive scale. These countries have suffered wave after wave of austerity measures in order to get their public finances back into shape following the financial crisis that hit the world economy in 2008/9. Greece and Spain also have the highest unemployment rates in the eurozone. Spain’s unemployment was 26.9 per cent, while Greece’s rate in March — its statistics are compiled on different timeframes — was 26.8 per cent. Both countries are also mired in a youth unemployment crisis. The proportion of Spain’s under-25 year olds out of work was 56.5 per cent while Greece’s was 59.2 per cent. Over recent months, policymakers across Europe have at least paid lip-service to the amount of young people out of work. As well as being a burden to a country’s coffers, sky-high levels of youth unemploy-

Mayor named one of most influential in Alberta The head of Red Deer’s municipal government has cracked a business magazine’s list of the most influential people in Alberta. Mayor Morris Flewwelling has been named to Alberta Venture’s 50 Most Influential People. Compiled annually by editors at the magazine, the list names those people who are believed to have had the greatest impact “on shaping opinions, ideas and actions in the province over the past year.” “They’re teachers and politicians, bankers and entrepreneurs,” said Michael Ganley, editor of Alberta Venture. “The one thing they all have in common is that each has had an uncommon influence on Alberta and beyond this year.” Alberta Venture has also produced a Next 10 list, which features Alberta’s rising talents. Included there this year is Matthew Wildcat, of Ermineskin First Nation at Hobbema. The 50 Most Influential People and Next 10 lists will be published in Alberta Venture’s July issue. They can also be viewed online at atalbertaventure.com.

ment have an additional social cost of denying a whole generation of potential workers skills and experience — that’s a long-term cost to the region’s economic potential as well as potentially inflaming social tensions. German Chancellor Angela Merkel is hosting a meeting of EU labour ministers on Wednesday as part of a strategy to deal with the crisis. Anna Zabrodzka, economist at Moody’s Analytics, said the labour market in Europe is heavily skewed against younger people. “Most EU nations effectively have dual labour markets, with permanent jobs typically protected by unions and held by people older than 35, and temporary jobs that are unprotected and held by younger workers,” she said. Elsewhere, Eurostat said inflation picked up to 1.6 per cent in the year to June, up from 1.4 per cent the previous month, largely because last year’s fall in energy prices fell out of the annual comparison. The increase is unlikely to cause too much concern among policymakers at the European Central Bank, as the rate remains below its target of keeping price increases just below 2 per cent. The ECB is meeting this Thursday to decide what more it can do to shore up the eurozone’s economy. However, a reduction in the main interest rate, which stands at a record low of 0.5 per cent, is not anticipated.

Women in particular are less prepared to cover long-term care costs than men, with 70 per cent saying they do not have a plan in place, compared to 62 per cent of men, which the CLHIA says is especially troublesome considering women have a longer life expectancy than men. Two-thirds of Canadians aged 60 or older said they would put money aside for long-term care if the government matched dollars they saved, similar to the registered retirement education savings plan. Half said they would prefer the government to take the lead and add to the long-term care programs it offers, even if it means higher taxes. “It is in the national interest that all levels of government and Canadians begin working together immediately to find solutions that will close the gap on what services are currently provided and what people can afford,” Swedlove said. Many retired Canadians realize they should have saved more for their retirement and are advising their fellow citizens who still are working to save more

money by creating a budget and sticking to it, contributing the maximum to their RRSPs, and paying off all debts before retiring, a TD Bank poll about retirement realities has found. Fifteen per cent of working Canadians only plan to save for retirement for less than five years before leaving the workforce, in contrast to 69 per cent of retirees who said that, in hindsight, they should have saved for retirement for 25 years or more. The poll found that a significant number of working Canadians plan to work longer than current retirees did during their careers. Sixty-four per cent of working Canadians expect to retire in their 60s, 28 per cent in their early 60s and 36 per cent after 65. Sixteen per cent think they will keep working into their 70s, which is later in life than current retirees, who said they left the full-time workforce in their late 50s (36 per cent) or early 60s (25 per cent), with only three per cent working into their 70s.

U.S. manufacturing activity grows

Photo by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

In this June 28, 2013 photo, trader Kevin Colter, left, works on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. U.S. stock futures are rising ahead of new data on manufacturing and construction, Monday. BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON — U.S. manufacturing activity grew in June behind a pickup in new orders, exports and production. Better economic growth overseas is boosting U.S. exports and could help American factories rebound in the second half of the year. The Institute for Supply Management said Monday that its index of factory activity increased to 50.9 in June. That’s up from 49 in May, which was

the lowest reading in four years. A reading above 50 suggests growth, while those below indicate contraction. A measure of export orders jumped to 54.5 from 51. That may be a response to growth in Japan and some European countries, economists said. Still, a measure of manufacturing employment fell in June to 48.7, its lowest level since September 2009. That suggests Friday’s June employment report will show factories cut jobs for the fourth straight month.

Interest rates on new U.S. colleges student loans double CONGRESS COULD RESTORE LOW RATES LATER BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON — College students taking out new loans for the fall term will see interest rates twice what they were in the spring — unless Congress fulfills its pledge to restore lower rates when it returns after the July 4 holiday. Subsidized Stafford loans, which account for roughly a quarter of all direct federal borrowing, went from 3.4 per cent interest to 6.8 per cent interest on Monday. Congress’ Joint Economic Committee estimated the cost passed to students would be about $2,600. “In the grand scheme of all the loans that I already have, I suppose it’s not out of control,” said Angie Platt, a 20-year-old University of Iowa student who expects to graduate with at least $60,000 in debt. “It’s just another thing to add on. It doesn’t help me; that’s for sure,” the Lakeville, Minn., native added. Efforts to keep interest rates from doubling on new Stafford loans fell apart last week amid partisan wrangling in the Senate. Democratic senators and the White House both predicted that a deal would be reached in Congress to bring the rates down again before students return to campus. But if an agreement remains elusive, students could find themselves saddled with higher interest rates this year than last. “It’s kind of surprising; that’s a big jump,” said Rebecca Ehlers, an Iowa State University senior majoring in math. A $1,000 subsidized Stafford loan is part of her financial aid package and she said she’s reconsidering how she pays for school. “I may work more or ask my parents for money rather than going through all that,” said Ehlers, 21. She — and millions of others who use federal student loans to pay for their education — has some time before she has to make that decision. But not much. “The only silver lining is that relatively few borrowers take out student

loans in July and early August. You really can’t take out student loans more than 10 days before the term starts,” said Terry Hartle, a top official with colleges’ lobbying operation at the American Council on Education. But that is little consolation for students looking at unexpected costs waiting for them on graduation day if Congress doesn’t take action before it breaks again for the month of August. “I’m upset by it,” said Kolton Gustafson, a George Washington University political science major heading into his senior year. “I wish there was a larger reaction to it.” “Many students are saying and thinking, ’I’ll pay it later,”’ the Grand Junction, Colo., native added. “That’s why you don’t see more people fighting back.” Students only borrow money for one school year at a time. Subsidized Stafford loans taken before Monday are not affected by the rate hike, nor are federal PLUS, Perkins or unsubsidized Stafford loans slated for the coming year. “We’re telling members to advise students that interest rates are going up,” said Justin Draeger, president of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators. Subsidized Stafford loans go to needier students and often are coupled with other types of lending. He said he doesn’t anticipate that the rate increase will prevent students from attending classes in the fall. The effects, he said, won’t be felt until after students graduate, when they have to start paying back the loans. “This doesn’t decrease the dollars available to pay for college. It increases the cost of the loan,” he said. Both political parties tried to blame the other for the hike and student groups complained the increase in interest rates would add to student loan debt that already surpasses credit card debt in this country. Lawmakers knew for a full year the July 1 deadline was coming but were unable to strike a deal to dodge that increase.

The mostly positive manufacturing survey contributed to strong gains on Wall Street and followed a pair of upbeat reports of factory growth overseas. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 155 points in midday trading, while broader stock indexes also gained. U.S. manufacturing had slowed this year after providing crucial support to the economy for the first three years after the recession ended in June 2009. Europe’s slump has weighed heavily on U.S. exports. And businesses cut back on their investment in machinery and equipment in the first quarter. “The ISM rebound suggested the worst may be past for the global trade slowdown that has contributed to a significant recent soft patch in U.S. manufacturing,” Ted Wieseman, an economist at Morgan Stanley, said in a note to clients. A report in Europe showed improvement in manufacturing activity in Britain, France and Italy and stabilization in Spain. And large manufacturers in Japan reported a positive outlook for the first time in nearly two years. The quarterly “tankan” survey showed that the outlook for services firms also increased. The stronger readings indicate that businesses are pleased with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s efforts to revive the nation’s stagnant economy. Still, China’s manufacturing sector weakened in June, according to two separate surveys. Factories there were hurt by falling orders from the U.S. and Europe and by Chinese regulators’ efforts to slow lending. Paul Dales, an economist at Capital Economics, says the growth at American factories suggests the U.S. economy is improving enough for the Federal Reserve to slow its monthly bond purchases as soon as September.

A bigger test will come Friday when the June jobs report is released, Dales added. Chairman Ben Bernanke said on June 19 that the Fed could scale back its bond buying later this year and end it next year if the economy continued to strengthen. His comments sent stocks falling and the yield on the 10-year Treasury bond jumped. That has also pushed up mortgage rates. But stocks have since rebounded and the yield on the 10-year note has dipped since the middle of last week. Favourable reports on the U.S. economy have helped. And several Fed members have clarified that any tapering would hinge on economic improvement, not a specific calendar date. There have been other signs recently that U.S. manufacturers could be starting to recover. U.S. businesses stepped up their orders for factory goods in April and May. And a category of orders that’s viewed as a proxy for business investment plans — which excludes the volatile areas of transportation and defence — rose 1.1 per cent in May, the third straight gain. Consumers also spent more in May on cars and trucks, which should keep auto factories humming. Sales at auto dealers rose in May by the most in six months, according to the Commerce Department. The U.S. economy expanded at only a 1.8 per cent annual rate in the first three months of the year, the Commerce Department said this week. That was much slower than its previous estimate of a 2.4 per cent rate. The main reason for the downgrade was consumers spent less on services than initially thought. Spending on long-lasting factory goods, such as cars and appliances, was stronger.

Nokia to fully acquire network operations with purchase of Siemens’ half THE ASSOCIATED PRESS HELSINKI, Finland — Nokia is turning to the stronger-performing parts of its business to help bolster its struggling smartphone arm, as it offered Siemens 1.7 billion euros ($2.22 billion) for its half of the networks joint venture. Nokia Corp. said Monday that the transaction will be completed during the third quarter this year, meaning that the company formed in 2007 — Nokia Siemens Networks — will become Nokia’s wholly owned subsidiary. After an initial surge of nearly 8 per cent, Nokia’s share price closed up 3.5 per cent at 2.95 euros on the Helsinki Stock Exchange, while Siemens AG’ share price was up 2.4 per cent at 79.60 euros in Frankfurt. Nokia Siemens Networks had been lossmaking for several years amid speculation and rumours that it was an acquisition target. Meanwhile, Nokia also began to struggle with its core production of cellphones, losing its

dominant market position. Recently, however, Nokia Siemens Networks has shown signs of improvement after restructuring and substantial job cuts, with a small first-quarter operating profit this year compared to a 1 billion euros loss in the same period in 2012. Neil Mawston from Strategy Analytics near London said the planned acquisition was not “a huge surprise” and that Nokia was trying to offset some “volatility” in its cellphone unit with the purchase. “Nokia is trying to get stability in the networks division so they can repair the handset division. It seems to be part of the overall strategy,” Mawston said. “The networks takeover is good in the short term because it brings some extra profits and counterbalances some of the challenges in the handset division.” But, he cautioned that the long-term profitability of networks operations was “questionable because of the crowded nature” of the global net-

works industry. Since Nokia lost its dominant position in cellphones, which peaked in 2008 with a with a global market share of 40 per cent, rumours about takeover bids and splitting the company have been rife, accompanied by plunges in its market share and share price. Mawston downplays rumours about splitting the company. “There has been some talk about Nokia’s split into two and become a dedicated network supplier and hive off its handset division,” Mawston said. “But given that handsets have such a good potential for growth, better than the networks unit, I think it would be unwise to sell off the handset division at this stage.” Nokia is struggling, especially in the lucrative smartphone market, against Samsung, Apple’s iPhone and handsets that use Google’s Android software. But it is also being squeezed at the lower end against Asian manufacturers making cheaper handsets.

Lone Ranger reboot mixes camp, action BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — The Lone Ranger co-star James Badge Dale says he’s eager for moviegoers to finally get a look at the long-awaited big-screen reboot, insisting the new take on Tonto “is not what people think.” The square-jawed actor was in Toronto recently to champion star Johnny Depp’s revamped portrayal of the controversial aboriginal sidekick, whose pidgin English and submissive image from decades past is now widely derided. “When they see the film they’ll get it and they’ll understand and all those questions and all those concerns will be answered,” Dale says during a round of interviews at a downtown hotel. “Johnny went to work with a lot of respect and a lot of humility towards the Native American community to get this story right. And the story is told through (Tonto’s) point of view, really.” Skepticism has surrounded the film ever since Depp was cast as Tonto, with some questioning the actor’s claim to Cherokee/Creek heritage. Depp was inducted into the Comanche Nation last year as an official member of the Native American tribe and has said he took pains to make sure his Tonto is a leader, not a follower. But the fuss continued as images of his character made the rounds online, with commenters arguing over whether or not his elaborate get-up was offensive: Depp with long black hair covering his torso, white-and-black striped facepaint and a crow on his head. There’s clearly a strong sense of humour in the film, says Dale, who suggests that comic relief goes a long way towards keeping the action-packed adventure tale moving. He adds that the film’s kooky and supernatural touches offer a welcome counterpoint to more sobering big ideas in the film, which stars Armie Hammer as the titular hero. “The campy approach works to bring out these other elements of the story, which are a little more dramatic and a little more poignant . . . . These themes of progress, capitalism, good, bad, who’s really a good guy, who’s really a bad guy, the outlaw versus the hero,” says Dale, known for co-starring in HBO’s The Pacific and starring in AMC’s short-lived series Rubicon. “Sometimes things can be too dark and I’m a fan of bringing them up because if you can laugh a little bit then you can take a moment to sit back and go, ’Wait a minute, I’m going to think about this for a second.’ I think it’s an effective vehicle for telling a story.” Dale plays the Lone Ranger’s older brother Dan Reid, a grizzled Texas ranger who deputizes his gunaverse, straight-laced lawyer brother John in order to hunt down the ruthless outlaw Butch Cavendish

This undated publicity photo from Disney/Bruckheimer Films, shows actors, Johnny Depp, left, as Tonto, a spirit warrior on a personal quest, who joins forces in a fight for justice with Armie Hammer, as John Reid, a lawman who has become a masked avenger, The Lone Ranger, from the movie, ‘The Lone Ranger.’ and his gang. The brutal chase offers a rude awakening to the naive John, whose faith in traditional law-and-order is shaken by the savage code of the Wild West. Dale says he and his co-stars did much of their own riding for the action scenes, which were shot amid the striking red mesas and buttes of Monument Valley. The region — located along the Utah-Arizona border — was made famous by many of John Ford’s iconic Western films including Stagecoach, Fort Apache and The Searchers. Dale, whose other summer blockbusters this year include Iron Man 3 and World War Z, gushes over getting “a once-in-a-lifetime experience” to play cowboy but also says “it was all real.” “We all kind of had near-disasters,” he reveals. “We wanted to do this for real. The idea was to do it

for real right up to the point where if it was too dangerous then we don’t do it.” Depp had a frightening fall from a horse in which he was almost trampled, while Dale found himself desperately holding on to a runaway horse. “I had a horse named Duke and I loved Duke. Me and Duke actually got along, sort of. Sometimes. But Duke was scared of gunfire and when you’re doing a Western that can get a little hectic,” he notes. “This horse just kept going and going and going. And I’m just thinking, ‘I’m holding on, I’m not going to fall off, I’m going to hold on, I’m holding on for dear life.’ And I’m like, ‘Duke, just please stop. Stop, man.’ And he runs up a hill and he stopped.... (Duke’s owner) rides up laughing and slapped me on the back and says ‘Congratulations, Badge. Duke hasn’t run that fast in 10 years.”’ The Lone Ranger opens Wednesday.

ANNIE ANNIE

dulgence and perhaps some laziness revolve around you today. Discipline proves to be an exigent task as you are not necessarily rushed into pushing matters further. Try to keep procrastination to the minimum. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your responsibilities and your personal needs are in conflict with each other for you today. Chores are becoming increasingly harder to deal with and you seem to have run out of vitality. This is a great day to replenish your psychic. CANCER (June 21-July 22): A busy days awaits for you on the social sphere. You know exactly where you are headed to today and you derive much intensity from your one-on-one relationships. Your interactions give you a better perspective of your own standing in a group. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your body and spirit are well aligned today. Subconsciously, you are at peace with yourself as your personal wants are in tune with your needs. Finish old tasks that are still pending on your office desk or wrap up a business deal. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You are thinking of an escape plan from today’s boredom. You believe that you must sacrifice something of yourself in order to achieve spiritual fulfilment.

Tuesday, July 2 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DATE: Larry David, 66; Lindsay Lohan, 27; Jerry Hall, 57 THOUGHT OF THE DAY: The Moon continues to explore the practical world of Taurus. There’s a greater desire for serenity, comfort and security. An opposition to Saturn designates that a cool air evaporates emotionality among us. A positive connection to the Sun and Pluto denotes that our wants and needs are intense and still, in superb harmony with each other. A sextile to Neptune indicates a highly spiritual inclination towards charitable causes. Paradoxically, we can soothe our minds through ambiguous, yet subtle activities. HAPPY BIRTHDAY: If today is your birthday, this is a highly sacred year for you. You will tap into your higher consciousness and find out the core meaning of the meaning of life as your spiritual antennas are highly attuned to philosophical doctrines. Committed relationships are intense and will satisfy you in a very significant way. ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may be facing some insecurity issues due to lack of financial stability or due to some cash shortWALMART CORRECTION NOTICE ages.

A tendency to drift away from your emotional needs makes you seek isolation from others. L I B R A (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): A little revelation might slip off in your circle of friends. Be ASTRO careful what DOYNA you share and how you approach the situation at hand. A tendency to slacking off makes your usual tasks run at a slower pace than usual. Don’t give up. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Interpersonal engagements are profound and can they can even go to extreme if you are not careful. Avoid abusing of your powers and of your ability to persuade others into doing whatever you wish them to do. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

SUN SIGNS

Helping others today may result in an overload of tasks for you personally. Your altruistic spirit will certainly be appreciated and recognized by others, but don’t overextend yourself as you can easily give in to exhaustion. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You might think that it’s low season where romance is concerned however, remember that this is just a temporary break from sentimental vibes. Love is hard to get hold of today and expressions your emotions seems that much harder of a task. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You can be highly productive today around the house. Gardening or planting greeneries are tasks which are surely favoured by the universe. You seem to know precisely what needs to be done and what are your priorities. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Others appreciate your emphatic nature and your ability to grasp their pain. Be open and sincere today as it can open up many barriers between you and the rest. Your choice of words is appropriate for just about any situation. Astro Doyna is an internationally syndicated astrologer/columnist.

Obama seeks to tamp down European outrage BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SPYING

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama brushed aside sharp European criticism on Monday, suggesting that all nations spy on each other as the French and Germans expressed outrage over alleged U.S. eavesdropping on European Union diplomats. American analyst-turned-leaker Edward Snowden, believed to still be at Moscow’s international airport, applied for political asylum to remain in Russia. Russian President Vladimir Putin, in a statement he acknowledged sounded odd, told reporters in Moscow that Snowden would have to stop leaking U.S. secrets if he wanted asylum in Russia — and he added that Snowden seemed unwilling to stop publishing leaks of classified material. At the same time, Putin said that he had no plans to turn over Snowden to the United States. Obama, in an African news conference with Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete, said the U.S. would provide allies with information about new reports that the National Security Agency had bugged EU offices in Washington, New York and Brussels. But he also suggested such activity by governments would hardly be unusual. “We should stipulate that every intelligence service —not just ours, but every European intelligence service, every Asian intelligence service, wherever there’s an intelligence service — here’s one thing that they’re going to be doing: They’re going to be trying to understand the world better, and what’s going on in world capitals around the world,” he said. “If that weren’t the case, then there’d be no use for an intelligence service.” The latest issue concerns allegations of U.S. spying on European officials in the German news weekly Der Spiegel. French President Francois Hollande on Monday demanded that the U.S. immediately stop any such eavesdropping and suggested the widening controversy could jeopardize next week’s opening of transAtlantic trade talks between the United States and Europe. “We cannot accept this kind of behaviour from partners and allies,” Hollande said on French television. German government spokesman Steffen Seibert told reporters in Berlin, “Eavesdropping on friends is unacceptable.” He declared, “We’re not in the Cold War anymore.” Even before the latest disclosures, talks at the upcoming free-trade sessions were expected

to be fragile, with disagreements surfacing over which items should be covered or excluded from an agreement. The United States has said there should be no exceptions. But France has called for exempting certain cultural products, and other Europeans do not appear eager to give up longtime agricultural subsidies. Obama said the Europeans “are some of the closest allies that we have in the world.” But he added, “I guarantee you that in European capitals, there are people who are interested in, if not what I had for breakfast, at least what my talking points might be should I end up meeting with their leaders. That’s how intelligence services operate.” Nonetheless, Obama said he’d told his advisers to “evaluate everything that’s being claimed” and promised to share the results with allies. Meanwhile, the Interfax news agency said a Russian consular official has confirmed that Snowden had asked for asylum in Russia. Interfax cited Kim Shevchenko, the duty officer at the Russian Foreign Ministry’s consular office in Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport, as saying that Snowden’s representative, Sarah Harrison, handed over his request on Sunday. Snowden, in legal limbo, is believed to have been in the airport’s transit zone since his arrival from Hong Kong on June 23. The U.S. has annulled his passport, and Ecuador, where he has hoped to get asylum, has been giving off mixed signals about offering him shelter. “If he wants to go somewhere and there are those who would take him, he is welcome to do so,” Putin said. “If he wants to stay here, there is one condition: He must stop his activities aimed at inflicting damage on our American partners, no matter how strange it may sound coming from my lips.” Obama said “there have been high-level discussions with the Russians” about Snowden’s situation. “We don’t have an extradition treaty with Russia. On the other hand, you know, Mr. Snowden, we understand, has travelled there without a valid passport, without legal papers. And you know we are hopeful that the Russian government makes decisions based on the normal procedures regarding international travel and the normal procedures regarding international travel and the normal interactions that law enforcement has. So I can confirm that.”

Vatican bank director, deputy resign BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ROME — The director of the embattled Vatican bank and his deputy resigned Monday, the latest heads to roll in a broadening finance scandal that has already landed one Vatican monsignor in prison and added urgency to Pope Francis’ reform efforts. The Vatican said in a statement that Paolo Cipriani and his deputy, Massimo Tulli, stepped down “in the best interest of the institute and the Holy See.” The speed with which they resigned, however, indicated that the decision was not entirely theirs. Cipriani, along with the bank’s then-president, was placed under investigation by Rome prosecutors in 2010 for alleged violations of Italy’s anti-money-laundering norms after financial police seized 23 million euro ($30 million) from a Vatican account at a Rome bank. Neither has been charged and the money was eventually ordered released. But the bank, known as the Institute for Religious Works, or IOR, has remained under the glare of prosecutors and now Francis amid fresh concerns it has been used as an offshore tax haven. It was the latest turmoil to hit the IOR, which has long been the source of scandal for the Holy See. Last year, the bank’s board ousted its thenpresident, Ettore Gotti Tedeschi, for incompetence and erratic behaviour. The resignations Monday and nominations of interim administrators represented a final overthrow of the bank’s old guard management and coincided with its efforts to comply with international norms to fight money-laundering and terror financing. The resignations came just days after Francis announced a commission of inquiry into the bank and followed the arrest of a Vatican accountant caught up in a criminal investigation into the IOR. Monsignor Nunzio Scarano is

accused by Rome prosecutors of corruption and slander in connection with a plot to smuggle 20 million euro ($26 million) into Italy from Switzerland without reporting it to customs officials. Scarano, dubbed “Don 500” by the Italian media because of his purported favourite euro banknote, acknowledged under questioning Monday that his behaviour was wrong but that he was only trying to help out friends, his attorney Silverio Sica told The Associated Press. According to wiretapped phone conversations, Scarano was in touch regularly with both Cipriani and Tulli to get the required bank approval to move large amounts of cash into and out of his IOR accounts. Scarano had two such accounts: a personal one and one called “Fondo Anziani” to receive charitable donations for projects to help the elderly, prosecutors say. In addition to his Rome arrest, Scarano is also under investigation in the southern city of Salerno for alleged money-laundering stemming from a 560,000 euro cash withdrawal he made from his IOR charity account in 2009. Sica, the attorney, has said Scarano arranged complicated transactions with dozens of other people and eventually used the money to pay off a mortgage. The group of five cardinals who oversee the IOR accepted the resignations of Cipriani and Tulli and tapped the IOR’s current president, German financier and aristocrat Ernst von Freyberg, to serve as interim director, a Vatican statement said. Von Freyberg, who was named IOR president in February, thanked Cipriani and Tulli for their years of work and said much progress has been made in recent years to bring greater transparency to the Vatican’s finances. “While we are grateful for what has been achieved, it is clear today that we need new leadership to increase the pace of this transformation process,” von Freyberg said in a statement.

‘As dark a day as I can remember’ 19 FIREFIGHTERS KILLED IN ARIZONA FOREST FIRE BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS YARNELL, Ariz. — As the windblown blaze suddenly swept toward them, an elite crew of firefighting “Hotshots” desperately rushed to break out their emergency shelters and take cover on the ground under the heat-resistant fabric. By the time the flames had passed, 19 men lay dead in the nation’s biggest loss of firefighters in a wildfire in 80 years. The tragedy Sunday evening all but wiped out the 20-member Granite Mountain Hotshots, a unit based in the small town of Prescott, Prescott Fire Chief Dan Fraijo said as the last of the bodies were retrieved from the mountain. Only one member survived, and that was because he was moving the unit’s truck at the time, authorities said. The deaths plunged the town into mourning, and Arizona’s governor called it “as dark a day I can remember” and ordered flags flown at half-staff. “We are heartbroken about what happened,” President Barack Obama said while on a visit to Africa. He predicted the tragedy will force government leaders to answer broader questions about how they handle increasingly destructive and deadly wildfires. The lightning-sparked fire — which had exploded to about 13 square miles by Monday morning — destroyed about 50 homes and threatened 250 others in and around Yarnell, a town of 700 people in the mountains about 85 miles northwest of Phoenix, the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Department said. Residents huddled in shelters and restaurants, watching their homes burn on TV as flames lit up the night sky in the forest above the town. It was unclear exactly how the firefighters became trapped. Southwest incident team leader Clay Templin said the crew and its commanders were following safety protocols, and it appears the fire’s erratic nature simply overwhelmed them. Brian Klimowski, meteorologist in charge of the National Weather Service’s Flagstaff office, said there was a sudden increase and shift in wind around the time of the tragedy. It’s not known how powerful the winds were, but they were enough to cause the fire to grow from 200 acres to about 2,000 in a matter of hours. The Hotshot team had spent recent weeks fighting fires in New Mexico and Prescott before being called to Yarnell, entering the smoky wilderness over the weekend with backpacks, chain saws and other heavy gear to remove brush and trees as a heat wave across the Southwest sent temperatures into the triple digits. As a last-resort effort at survival, members are trained to dig into the ground and cover themselves with a one-man, bag-like shelter made of fire-resistant material, Fraijo said.

A photo of one of the 19 Granite Mountain Hot Shot crew members who was killed fighting a wild land fire near Yarnell, Ariz. on Sunday, sits at a makeshift memorial outside the crew’s fire station on Monday in Prescott, Ariz. An out-of-control blaze overtook the elite group of firefighters trained to battle the fiercest wildfires, killing 19 members as they tried to protect themselves from the flames under fire-resistant shields. The disaster Sunday afternoon all but wiped out the 20-member Hotshot fire crew leaving the city’s fire department reeling. “It’s an extreme measure that’s taken under the absolute worst conditions,” Fraijo said. Even then, the shelters can be undone by heat and flame and do not always save lives. Arizona Forestry Division spokesman Mike Reichling said all 19 victims had deployed their shelters. The flames apparently enveloped the shelters. Autopsies were scheduled to determine how the firefighters died. Gov. Jan Brewer’s voice caught several times as she addressed reporters and residents at Prescott High School. “I know that it is unbearable for many of you, but it also is unbearable for me. I know the pain that everyone is trying to overcome and deal with today,”

she said. On the bleachers, two women held each other and wept into tissues. An elderly man clutched a wooden walking stick and gazed at the ground. Many of the residents were red-eyed, and listened with their hands over their mouths. A makeshift memorial of flower bouquets and American flags formed at the Prescott fire station where the crew was based. Prescott resident Keith Gustafson showed up and placed 19 water bottles in the shape of a heart. “When I heard about this, it just hit me hard,” he said. “It hit me like a ton of bricks.” The U.S. has 110 Hotshot crews, according to the U.S. Forest Service website. They typically have about 20 members each.

hood, told the rally: “We survived hurricanes and tornadoes and we’ll survive the Texas legislature too.” Forty years after the U.S. Supreme Court deemed abortion legal, however, most polls suggest more Americans are pro-life than pro-choice. That’s in stark contrast to the situation in Canada, where public opinion surveys routinely find that Canadians overwhelmingly support legal abortion. A recent Angus Reid poll also found that Canadians have no appetite for reopening the debate.

WASHINGTON — During the usual lull in U.S. politics leading up to the Fourth of July holiday this week, the photograph was startling -- Ohio Gov. John Kasich, surrounded by a male-only group of state lawmakers, signing into law a budget bill that contains several strict anti-abortion provisions. Ohio is now home to some of the most stringent abortion laws in the country, joining Texas on the national stage as a battleground in the hot-button debate that still bitterly divides Americans. The Ohio measures — now the law of the land in a state won by President Barack Obama in the past two elections — require any woman seeking an abortion to have an ultrasound. It also substantially cuts funding to Planned Parenthood, likely forcing the closure of three women’s health clinics that provide low-cost birth control to women. It also puts rape crisis clinics on notice — if they’re caught counselling sexual assault victims about abortion, they’re at risk of losing public funding. The bill does, however, provide funding for “crisis pregnancy centres” often operated by reli-

gious organizations that don’t offer abortion referral services. The law was quietly signed into law on Sunday night by Kasich — who didn’t take questions from reporters on the measures — as the abortion battle in Texas was back in the spotlight on Monday following last week’s 11-hour filibuster by Wendy Davis, a Democratic state senator whose antics earned international attention. Gov. Rick Perry called a special session of the state legislature on Monday in order to consider the legislation that would prohibit most abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy and limit where and how Texan women can obtain abortions. The Senate recessed until next week, when it will take up the bill after committee hearings this week. Davis, whose filibuster scuttled the bill, was given a hero’s welcome from thousands of pro-choice demonstrators who rallied at the Texas state legislature in Austin before the special session got under way. “Together we can do what they won’t,” Davis told the cheering crowd. “We can stand. We can stand up together. We can stand up for what’s right. We can stand up for Texas.” Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parent-

Mining boom sparks a clash over sex worker rights in small-town Australia BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MORANBAH, Australia — A lone woman checking into a motel in the Australian mining town of Moranbah can expect some blunt questioning from the owners: “Are you a working girl?” Turning on a heel and storming away indignantly will be taken as an admission to prostitution. “That sort of reaction is really positive proof as far as I’m concerned,” said Joan Hartley, the 67-year-old owner of the Drover’s Rest Motel and champion of motel operators who want to rid their businesses of sex workers cashing in on a mining boom. Moranbah in the coal-rich Bowen Basin is part of the new landscape of Australian mining. Workers are increasingly leaving their homes and families for weeks on end to earn big money in distant mines in the Outback. It’s a workforce known as fly-in, fly-out, or FIFO (feye-foh) for short. Where the FIFO miners go, the FIFO prostitutes follow. With miners earning 110,000 to 160,000 Australian dollars ($100,000 to $150,000) a year, many sex workers find working the remote mining towns more lucrative than the economically moribund cities in which they live, despite the travel costs and a recent slowdown that has seen the mothballing of some inefficient mines. Not everyone in small-town Australia has welcomed the sex workers. Though prostitution is legal nationwide, the two main mining states — Queensland and Western Australia — have promised or passed laws restricting their activity. Their arrival has fed into broader fears that transient workers — miners included — and their urban values pose a threat to a closeknit, rural way of life. Moranbah, a town in Queensland, is one such place. Its population of 11,000 doubles if the FIFO miners housed in nearby camps are counted. Until a recent slump in coal prices, the 42-yearold town was one of the fastest-growing places in Australia. It also remains the kind of place where people make eye contact with passers-by and smile. Where everyone knows everyone else’s business — and many of their secrets. So Hartley was suspicious of a regular guest, an attractive woman in her early 40s, at her modest, cement-brick Drover’s Rest Motel. The guest claimed to be an interior designer, but cleaners once counted 10 used condoms inside a tied-up, translucent plastic garbage bag left in her

In this photo taken on Thursday, June 13, 2013, brothel manager Warwick Bumstead poses in a bondage suite at his Club 7 in Mackay, Australia. Sex workers are increasingly facing restrictions on their ability to work in Australia’s two main mining states. A Club 7 sex worker, a New Zealander in her late 20s, said she is thinking of branching to some of the smaller mining towns such as Moranbah, where she has heard she can make more money working on her own. Karlaa, whose real name has been suppressed by a court order, sued the motel under the Queensland state Anti-Discrimination Act, which bans discrimination against sex workers. She demanded AU$30,000 for stress, anxiety and lost earnings. She lost before a state tribunal in 2011 but won on appeal last year. That ruling outraged hotel and motel owners, and the Queensland government responded by amending the Anti-Discrimination Act last November to allow owners to refuse accommodation to sex workers if there is reason to believe they plan to work on the premises. “We have levelled the playing field so the laws suit the majority, not the minority,” state Attorney General and Justice Minister Jarrod Bleijie said in a statement at the time. The Queensland Supreme Court subsequently overturned the appeals court ruling anyway, saying in May that Drovers Rest did have the right to deny Karlaa a room, even before the law

motel room trash can. The final evidence came in June 2010 when the woman, who worked under the name Karlaa, was given a room with a door that could be seen from reception. Hartley said the first client, a spotty-faced youth, arrived at 11.45 a.m., half an hour after Karlaa checked in. The men kept arriving all day and into the night. All were well behaved and well presented — no grimy work clothes or coal blackened faces, said Hartley, who added that sex workers reduce the rate of sexual violence and address some of the “disharmony” created when miners are separated from their home communities. Still, when Karlaa checked out, Hartley told her never to return. “This world needs the likes of yourself and any other lady or man who does your sort of work,” she recalled telling the woman. “The world needs you big time. But I don’t want it in my motel.”

was amended. Tougher limits on prostitution are also on the table in the state of Western Australia, where iron ore is excavated from its sparsely populated north. Proposed laws would limit the sex trade to a few designated areas and require self-employed sex workers to be licensed. No more than two such licensed prostitutes could work from the same premises. John Scott, a criminologist at Australia’s University of New England, said that Queensland and Western Australia are tightening restrictions after a loosening of controls by Australian states that began in the 1990s. “There does seem to be a reverse trend in both those mining states, and I suspect part of it relates to the mining industry and some of the concerns raised in rural areas,” Scott said. The FIFO sex workers tend to be older than their city counterparts and don’t dress as provocatively. With housing tight, some arrive in motor homes or sublet spare rooms in clients’ homes. They advertise in newspapers and on websites, and have even handed out fliers at Moranbah’s main shopping mall. Karlaa, who lives more than 1,000 kilometres (600 miles) away in the tourist city of Gold Coast, said she used to send text messages to regular clients announcing the dates of her next visit. Word would quickly spread among hundreds of men across mine sites by two-way radio. Another Gold Coast-based sex worker said she doesn’t plan to return to Moranbah because escorts are made to feel unwelcome. The woman, who is in her early 20s, said young and attractive sex workers are particularly conspicuous and likely to be given a room near the reception if they stay at Drover’s Rest, so they can be kept under surveillance. She continues to work in other mining towns in the region. Some say that a more open sex industry and even a legal brothel would be good for Moranbah. Real estate agent Marie Plahn sees a brothel as a better option than miners potentially spreading disease or impregnating women they meet in bars. “Paying for sex is cheaper than child support if it resulted in that,” she said. But Roger Ferguson, a former deputy mayor and a motel owner also sued by Karlaa, said the Moranbah council would probably reject a brothel. Miners often drive 190 kilometres to the nearest brothel in the port city of Mackay, a regional support centre for mining.
