Extendicare workers may strike by Monday EXTENDICARE CANADA INC. PULLED OUT OF MEDIATION BY MURRAY CRAWFORD ADVOCATE STAFF Workers at Michener Hill Extendicare in Red Deer may join with more than 1,200 seniors care workers in a provincewide strike. Alberta Union of Provincial Employees members at eight worksites in Alberta could legally strike by Monday morning. According to AUPE, Extendicare Canada Inc. cancelled mediation scheduled for Tuesday and pulled out of the planned Thursday mediation session. The union represents 358 staff at Michener Hill Extendicare. That is the most staff of any of the eight locations in a strike position. “We were told this morning that Extendicare pulled out of mediation,” said AUPE president Guy Smith on Thursday. “That’s added pressure to an already volatile labour dispute.” Strike notice could be served as early as today and with a 72-hour notice period, pickets could be up by Monday. The union was scheduled to meet on Thursday night to discuss the next steps and then the union and bargaining committee will meet this morning at 10 a.m. to finalize plans. “Our goal is always to come to a fair agreement without job action,” said Smith. The current collective bargaining agreement expired on Dec. 31, 2012. Michener Hill Extendicare workers voted 99 per cent in favour of strike action. The Red Deer location consists of 220 continuing care beds and 60 supportive living beds. In a press release, Smith said Extendicare is trying to manipulate the government into arbitration and their position is out of line with industry standards. At the heart of the issue, according to AUPE, is that Extendicare is implying funding discrepancies with Alberta Health Services are dictating their position. But, contracts between AHS and Extendicare are kept secret, leaving AUPE skeptical about the claim.

Energy regulator auditing Plains Midstream after problems found BY THE CANADIAN PRESS CALGARY — The Canadian wing of a U.S.-based pipeline company responsible for several large recent spills in Alberta is being audited and its future plans subject to a higher level of scrutiny. The Alberta Energy Regulator has told Plains Midstream the moves are in response to the company’s failure to follow the province’s safety regulations. “Plains Midstream Canada has failed to follow rules that are in place to ensure energy development in Alberta takes place in a safe and responsible manner,” Jim Ellis, CEO of the regulator, said in a statement issued Thursday afternoon. “As a result, all of Plains Midstream Canada’s operations will be subject to additional regulatory scrutiny until we are satisfied it can operate in compliance with AER requirements.” The regulator cited 19 deficiencies in the company’s operations since 2011, including some it con-

sidered high risk. Plains Midstream already faces environmental charges for a 2011 spill of 4.5 million litres of oil near the community of Little Buffalo. Its pipes were also involved in large spills in 2012 into the Red Deer River and one earlier this year near Manning in northwest Alberta. The regulator says it will conduct a full audit of all the company’s operations in Alberta. Any new plans from the company will be fully reviewed and must be approved by the regulatory board’s head. “This action seriously restricts the ability of Plains Midstream Canada to obtain further approvals for operations in Alberta,” Ellis’ statement reads. “Until the company can demonstrate that it can operate within Alberta’s rules and requirements, every single interaction with the Alberta Energy Regulator will be subject to extra scrutiny while we conduct a full audit of its operations.” Messages left with the company seeking comment were not immediately returned.

Red Deer’s newest centenarian, Marjorie Waterman, says the key to longevity is living a healthy life. That means cutting out all the “good things that people like to do.” “No smoking, no drinking,” laughed Waterman, who never smoked but enjoyed the odd glass of wine with her late husband, Benjamin. Waterman turned 100 years old surrounded by family and friends at the West Park Lodge on June 27. On Thursday, Waterman enjoyed a belated birthday lunch with Mayor Morris Flewwelling. As part of the Red Deer’s centennial celebrations, the mayor is reaching out to citizens turning 100. Waterman was the first to answer the call but admitted she was a little overwhelmed with all the attention. “My birthdays always just came and went,” laughed Waterman. “I never thought about (turning 100) ... I feel great. I could be a lot younger. I would think someone 100-years-old would feel old and tired and weary. Not me.” Waterman was born and raised in Donalda. She went to Olds College and worked as a caregiver at Deer Home, now Michener Centre. She met her husband in 1944 and married shortly after the Second World War. They raised three children.

DND ends plans for mobile No charges laid in death of girl Tim Hortons outlets BY THE CANADIAN PRESS BY THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — The Department of National Defence is abandoning plans for three mobile, deployable Tim Hortons outlets, denying Canadian troops that familiar taste of home on future overseas missions. As Canada’s combat mission in Afghanistan was winding down in 2011, military officials proposed making it standard practice to have trailer-sized units on hand to sling coffee and donuts to soldiers. A Tim’s outlet at Kandahar Airfield, which operated for five years, generated $7.1 million in gross profit, much of which was plowed back into military support and services programs after expenses were paid. The proposal to have trailers ready to go for other extended deployments was energetically endorsed by the country’s overseas commander, according to documents obtained by The Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act. “The potential availability of a Tim Hortons outlet for future missions will give ... additional flexibility to enhance the physical and emotional well-being of deployed personnel with a little taste from home,” said a memo dated Dec. 14, 2011, which asked Lt.Gen. Stuart Beare for his blessing. Plans were so far advanced that the military’s support services unit had planned to begin construction of the trailers sometime in January 2012, but they were cancelled before any work was started. A defence spokeswoman, Lt. Michele Tremblay, said the coffee houses were “no longer required.” The proposal was initially drafted in the context of setting up a Tim’s outlet to serve the 950 troops

Alberta Court of Appeal upholds restrictions on Métis hunting rights MEDICINE HAT — The Alberta Court of Appeal has upheld a ruling that restricts where Métis people can hunt in the province. Garry Hirsekorn was convicted in 2010 of hunting out of season after he shot a mule deer in 2007 near the Cypress Hills area in southeast Alberta. His lawyers had argued that he was exercising his aboriginal rights as a Métis. The court denied

taking part in the Kabul training mission, she said. The idea was abandoned when it was weighed against the $100,000 per trailer cost of construction, and the fact the units could be assembled within two months should future commanders decide they want one, Tremblay added. The support services unit operates semi-independently from National Defence and is not funded by taxpayers. Even still, National Defence has been faced with an ever-tightening budget noose with some estimates projecting a cut of up to $2.5 billion — from a projected $19-billion annual appropriation — by 2014. A spokeswoman at Tim Hortons corporate office was asked to comment, but was not immediately available. Operating the overseas outlets wouldn’t have been cheap. The briefing note said each trailer would produce up to $300,000 per year in expenses, but that costs would be more than offset by the profit. All of the proceeds from the Kandahar location went to military community and family support programs after Tim Hortons waived the fees and operating costs typically associated with a franchise. During its time, the uniquely Canadian chain was wildly popular in Kandahar, rivalling the Californiabased Green Bean franchise, which poured coffee on 55 U.S. military bases in the Middle East. The wait for Tim’s among coalition soldiers often stretched to 45 minutes when the outlet was in its heyday at the air base’s popular boardwalk, where other American contractors served up Burger King, Subway, Pizza Hut and other comfort foods to soldiers far from home. Hirsekorn’s appeal Thursday. It ruled that his lawyers failed to prove that Métis had a significant long-standing historic presence in the area before the North West Mounted Police began patrolling the region during the 1870s. “At that point in Métis history, the Cypress Hills were not part of the traditional territory of the historic community, however defined,” Justice Marina Paperny wrote in the judgment. “Having reviewed the evidence and fact findings in this case with this test and these indicia in mind, I conclude that it falls short of meeting this lower threshold to establish a right to hunt in the environs of the Cypress Hills.”

EDMONTON — Edmonton police say they have closed their investigation into the death of a little girl found inside a car during a heat wave, ruling no crime took place. Police say the three-year-old girl was not left in the car by a caregiver on Tuesday evening, but didn’t provide any further detail about how she got there. Officers did note that vehicle she was found in was not locked. “The Edmonton Police Service investigation into this case is now closed,” the department said in a short statement issued Thursday afternoon. “Police will not be able to comment further on the circumstances of the death as it is non-criminal.” Both the Edmonton Journal and CBC have identified the tot as Tsi Tsi Chitekedza. The local outlets quoted her mother, Grace Vela, as saying she doesn’t know how her daughter ended up in the car Tuesday after the family had returned from a splash park. Vela told CBC she pulled the little girl form the vehicle after finding her seemingly sleeping inside with her thumb in her mouth. The temperature in Edmonton hit 33 C on Tuesday and humidity levels made it feel more like 43 C. Paramedics performed CPR and provided hydration before the youngster was taken by ambulance to the Stollery Children’s Hospital where she died. Tsi Tsi is the second child to die in a hot car recently. In Ontario, a funeral was held earlier this week for a two-year-old boy, who died after being left alone in a sweltering car outside a home in Milton, west of Toronto. Investigators said Maximus Huyskens died after “being exposed to high-level temperatures for an extended period of time” in a sedan. They said the child was in the care of his maternal grandmother, while his father was at work and his mother was at an appointment. No charges have been laid. Police are waiting for the results of toxicology tests. Another mother in Edmonton is facing charges under provincial child welfare legislation for leaving her three boys in a vehicle with the sunroof open this week. A passerby saw the boys Tuesday in a vehicle in front of a hardware store and called 911.


STRIKE: Would affect facilities across the province Other locations that could face a strike by Monday are Extendicare Eaux Claires in Edmonton, Cedars Villa in Calgary, Mayerthorpe, Hillcrest in Calgary, Holyrood in Edmonton, Fairmont Park in Lethbridge and Athabasca. Calls to Extendicare Canada Inc. were not immediately returned.

High River residents survey the damage ACCESS TO HARD-HIT NEIGHBOURHOODS STILL LIMITED They’ll have social centres. They’ll have recreational facilities,” Schreiber said. Plans to house people longer than six months are still being developed and are likely to involve individual mobile homes, Schreiber said. “What we are trying to do is keep people from High River in High River so that families have the same daycare, the same doctor, the same schools, the same hockey team. It relieves that anxiety and stress because they are already going to have enough problems.” Mayor Emile Blokland praised volunteers who have worked side-by-side with citizens to help the town recover. “Residents as they have returned to their communities have felt the weight of the world on their shoulders as they’ve faced the enormous task of cleaning out their homes and getting back to their daily lives,” he said. “It’s all about community first, neighbours second and the me-me factor third. And we have to remember that as we move forward. It’s neighbour helping neighbour (to) get this community back on its feet again as quickly as possible.” In Calgary, things were also starting to get back to some sense of normalcy on Thursday as everyone prepared for the Calgary Stampede. A state of emergency was lifted at 10:16 a.m. — the exact hour it was called two weeks ago, when the city and much of southern Alberta was hit by the worst flooding in the province’s history. Meanwhile, the Alberta Federation of Labour has asked the federal government to modify Employment Insurance rules to better serve workers whose jobs have been affected by the disaster. Federation president Gil McGowan said workers are being lost in the shuffle as officials concentrate on flood relief efforts. “A loss of livelihood, even a temporary loss, can multiply the damage of a disaster like this, and make it more difficult for employees and employers to recover even long after the waters have receded,” McGowan said in a news release. The labour group would like Ottawa to waive the EI waiting period for all workers who have lost income during the flood and streamline work-sharing programs.



Members of the RCMP return from a boat patrol of a still flooded neighborhood in High River on Thursday. deformed and there’s a very real danger of people going in their homes, falling through the floor and being trapped in a watery basement. “We’re not willing to risk that.” A major road that separates the two neighbourhoods has been turned into a dike and must hold, Schreiber said. That’s why traffic in and out of the Hamptons is being restricted. “That dike is critical, because if we can’t maintain the integrity of that dike, the Sunshine neighbourhood could potentially reflood.” As it was, sewage was still backing up in parts of that district because of all the water in the Hamptons. About 1,000 of High River’s 7,000 homes are in the two areas. More than 6,000 of the town’s 13,000 people have already returned to other parts of the town to begin mopping up. The province is looking at three phases of accommodation for evacuees whose homes are too damaged to live in. Schreiber said evacuee reception centres have noticed an uptick in the number of people needing a place to

Stampede finalized as Calgary’s state of emergency lifted BY THE CANADIAN PRESS CALGARY — Yahoo! Two weeks after extensive flooding that turned part of downtown Calgary into a lake and forced up to 100,000 southern Albertans from their homes, the city ended a state of emergency just in time for its annual Stampede. “I think there’s a better feeling for the Stampede this year because people are saying not only are we going to have all the great times that we have every year during a Stampede, but we’re doing it in the context of a community that’s stronger than it’s ever been,” Mayor Naheed Nenshi said at a pre-Stampede pancake breakfast Thursday. “I thought last year’s Stampede with the centennial could never be topped, but I think Stampede 101 is going to be even better.” Nenshi was given a welcome normally reserved for a rock star as he spoke briefly to hundreds of people who turned out for the event one day before the official Stampede parade kickoff. The trademark cowboy hats, boots and jeans were already in full view. The latest fad is a black “Hell or High Water” T-shirt that was introduced during the flood after the Stampede’s president used the words to vow the annual celebration of the cowboy way of life would go on. Brown, muddy water swamped the Stampede grounds and filled the parade route at the height of the flooding. But cleanup and recovery are well underway and things are starting to get back to normal. Lifting the state of emergency less than 24 hours before the Stampede parade was meant to be a sign of that. “Symbolically ... us saying we’re no longer in an emergency is a really big thing,” said Nenshi. “For people to say, ’All right, I can take a breath. It’s not wrong for me to take a day off and enjoy the Stampede.’ “While we’re working hard with our neighbours, we can take a day off to celebrate what makes the city great.” Calgary also has launched a national ad campaign that will run over the next three weeks to let travellers know that “Calgary’s Doors are Open.” Nenshi said the campaign is mainly economically motivated. “A lot of our neighbours are in a

lot of pain. A lot of people have lost wages over the time we’ve been closed, and many of those folks depend on the tourism industry to do well, and of course they make their bread and butter during Stampede,” he said. “Whether you’re working in a restaurant or in a hotel or a retail business, we need to get those people back up again. They’ve suffered enough. It’s a chance to show the world we’re back.” The Vancouver Humane Society also stepped up with what has become its annual anti-cruelty campaign during the Stampede. An ad with the message “Human Kindness” shows a little girl petting a calf. The next frame shows an animal in the calf-roping event being tied up. The message: “Stampede Blindness. C’mon Stampede. Have a heart for animals. Ban calf-roping.” Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, this year’s parade grand marshal, said filling that role at this year’s Stampede is especially touching. “This is an important annual event for Calgary. It’s a rallying point. It’s a thing that Canadians do. It’s a thing that Albertans do, even though there has been high water and a lot of hell along with it,” he said at a media availability. He said he was amazed at the progress that has been made since the flooding. “It’s almost like flowers that are starting to bloom after a really harsh winter.” Hadfield, who accepted the city’s invitation to be grand marshal while he was still on his five-month mission aboard the International Space Station, said he will be riding a horse in the parade. He proudly showed off a new pair of boots that were made for him by a Houston company that also makes boots for U.S. presidents. The boots have the mission patch designed for the Canadian Space Agency on the front and a Maple Leaf on the back. Federal NDP Leader Tom Mulcair was also in Calgary on Thursday for Stampede festivities and to view flood damage. “It’s quite the sight. I took a very long tour. A lot of devastation. We saw the pictures on TV, but I don’t think everyone understands the extent of the damage and how long it’s going to take to get everything done,” said Mulcair.

stay as hotel reservations run out, especially with the Stampede opening Friday in Calgary. The first phase of the plan is therefore short term, for people who need accommodations for about two weeks. “They found their own accommodation when they booked their hotel room. The hotel is booked up and they are being asked to leave because there is essentially no room at the inn,” Schreiber said. “I don’t think we can book ’em into the Trump, but we are going to find them a place to live for two weeks.” The province has booked the Super 8 motel in High River and the University of Lethbridge is also taking families into its dorms. The second phase involves setting up oil-field-style camps with trailers where evacuees can live while their homes are rebuilt. Two of those camps are already being built in High River and there are plans for a third depending on demand. The first is expected to be ready Friday. “Those will be suitable for up to six months. They’ll have playgrounds.

HIGH RIVER — People from the most flooded out neighbourhoods in High River are being allowed to see the damage and pick up a few belongings as reconstruction crews feverishly prepare accommodations for those whose houses are too mud-caked and water-warped to live in. The province says crews have managed to pump out water in the Sunshine Meadows district more quickly than expected and access is now possible. The area has been described as a giant bowl and water collected there the most when the Highwood River burst its banks two weeks ago. “We’re going to allow people to go back to their homes to take a look . . . and our fervent recommendation is that you take a look at your house, you assess the safety of entering and grab critical belongings,” Shane Schreiber, head of the High River recovery task force, said at an update on Thursday. He warned people that they should brace themselves because many of their houses are badly damaged. “I just caution that it’ll be a bit of a shock,” Schreiber said. “Be prepared to see your house in a pretty shocking state, frankly.” He advised residents to get advice from structural engineers as to whether their homes are safe to live in. “Some of these houses you may be able to remediate them once you get that structural assessment, but many of them have been under water for a number of days. “There’s no way you can go back to some of these houses right now.” A bus tour was being organized for the adjacent neighbourhood of Hampton Hills — still under water — so that people could at least get a look at their properties. Schreiber explained that nearly 500,000 litres are being pumped out of the Hamptons every minute — about 500 million litres daily — and levels are going down 15 centimetres a day. But the “lake” that the area has essentially become is still at least a metre deep on streets and the first floor of buildings. “That’s why we can’t allow residents back in. It’s still too dangerous,” he said. “Those floors, the construction materials have probably significantly

A recipe for disaster LOCATING NEW SUBDIVISIONS IN FLOODPLAINS NOTHING LESS THAN A CRIME BY DOUG FIRBY SPECIAL TO THE ADVOCATE It’s time legislators across Canada showed some courage and passed meaningful legislation limiting development on floodplains. It’s not like the fact that large portions of Canada floods is news to anyone. A map of flood-prone areas prepared by the CBC using data from the Canadian Disaster Database shows just how extensive the flood prone areas are. It shows all of B.C., large portions of Southern Alberta and Saskatchewan, much of the area surrounding Winnipeg, all of Quebec, as well as New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and P.E.I. Yep. Sad to say, but much of our country is vulnerable to a flooding “event,” as the experts like to call it, sooner or later. Outside of the identified high-risk areas, there are numerous examples of recent floods, including the two in the past eight years that have walloped Calgary and surrounding communities. That certainly goes a long to explain why you can’t get residential overland flooding insurance anywhere in Can-

ada. As I said, none of this is new in recorded history. The Fraser River flood of 1894 was the largest flood of that river on record, and then it got hit by the second largest in 1948. Calgary and area got hammered hard in 1929, several times since, and then once again in June of this year. Manitoba’s Red River spills its banks with great regularity, with a horrific flood in 1950 and a substantial overflow in 1997, despite mitigation efforts. Also in Manitoba, the Assiniboine flooded in 2011, affecting 225 square km around Portage la Prairie. And who can forget the heartbreaking Saguenay, Que., flood of 1996, when 28 cm of rain fell on the region in a few hours? Further to the east, the Saint John River in New Brunswick overflowed in 2008, surpassing a similar event in 1973. I don’t want to get drawn into a debate over whether man-made climate change is behind the increasingly extreme weather our country is experiencing, but it is clear that most climatologists think we’ll see more nasty events in the coming years. With that, and history, in mind, we don’t change the way we build and locate businesses and homes, then we’re a bunch of idiots. And yet, in many portions of the country, provinces and municipalities

allow building permits in areas that are almost certainly going to experience flooding — if not next year, then certainly within our lifetimes. Why is that? Well, part of the motivation is that Canadians — like many others around the world — consider waterside property to be so attractive it’s worth a premium. Some of the nicest homes in any city are located right on the edge of waterways. And when the weather is stable, they are truly great places to be. But it’s not a good long-term plan. As Calgarians learned two weeks ago, a multimillion-dollar mansion isn’t nearly as impressive as it once was when it’s sitting under two metres of water. And yet people often don’t take the long view. I have heard from homeowners who lost their properties in Calgary’s recent flood who said they didn’t know, and weren’t told, that their beautiful property was in an area considered at high risk. You might well wonder how the heck they couldn’t figure that out, but people shopping for homes tend to worry more about the marble countertops than the water table. So, in the absence of common sense, governments need to bring some reason to the discussion. It’s in all our interests to restrict building, because inevitably those affected by the flooding look for massive government bailouts

when the basement fills up. No jurisdiction in North America appears to have this problem solved, but there are some interesting initiatives in the U.S., which has certainly felt its share of the pain. The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) will compensate those hurt by flooding, but it comes with a big requirement. Any community that wishes to participate in the NFIP must agree to take on the responsibility of floodplain management — including the enforcement of building restrictions. That tactic alone is not enough to address the growing toll of flooding in our country, but it would be a hefty start. Homes destroyed in High River and similar areas should simply not be rebuilt in the same location. And locating new subdivisions in floodplains is nothing less than a crime. Beyond the obvious compassion for victims, taxpayers have a highly vested interest in this issue. Every time flooding devastates an area, we are all asked to contribute to the rebuilding. That’s billions of dollars diverted from other urgent public spending. When will our country learn to listen to nature’s cruel message? When we’re drowning in debt?

Unpredictable acts by nuts hard to stop BY THOMAS WALKOM SPECIAL TO THE ADVOCATE The first thing to note about the pair arrested in British Columbia on terrorism charges is that until compelling evidence proves otherwise, they are innocent. Presumption of innocence is not just a pro-forma right. It’s an essential starting point, particularly when allegations of terror are involved. The second thing to note, from the little that has been revealed by the RCMP, is that the case involving John Nuttall and Amanda Korody is a very weird one. Police are not claiming that the alleged plot to plant explosives at the B.C. legislature in Victoria was part of an international plot. In fact, they claim the precise opposite — that there was no foreign involvement. The RCMP does say the alleged scheme was “inspired by al-Qaida ideology.” But it hasn’t quite said it was religiously motivated, although that is the clear implication. Nuttall’s lawyer says the arrested man was a convert to Islam. Was Korody? That’s uncertain although it has been reported that she was seen wearing the kind of garb that some Muslims sometimes wear. Converts to Islam have been involved as secondary figures in religiously inspired terror plots, including that of the Toronto 18. But in this alleged plot, the RCMP says Nuttall

Nuttall is presented as a troubled soul with a criminal record — a drug addict, not terribly successful musician and occasional thug. Other than the fact that she came from St. Catharines, Ont., not much is known about Korody. The police say this unlikely pair living on the margins somehow morphed into full-scale activists dedicated to committing violent acts for political, religious or ideological purposes (which is the Criminal Code definition of terrorism). That would be bad enough if true. Even more frightening is the possibility that individuals are now embracing terrorism not for grand ideological or political goals — but just for something to do. The Boston Marathon outrage had an element of this — a suggestion that the attacks this spring were carried out not to win, say, Chechen independence but to play out some kind of grudge that the perpetrators had against the world. In that sense, Boston was a crucial event. It linked the Islamist terrorism behind the Sept. 11 attacks to the just plain craziness that plays itself out regularly in the United States (and to lesser extent in Canada). It’s a random craziness we know all too well — one that has produced an array of tragedies, from the 1989 massacre of women at Montreal’s École Polytechnique to the Newtown, Conn., shootings of last year. But have the crazies now got a new hero? To put

it another way: Has Osama Bin Laden now become a poster boy not just for misguided Islamists but for every loon with a grudge? If so, we are in for some rough times. Political movements eventually play themselves out. At some point, the antipathy towards the U.S. that inspires suicide bombers in Yemen and Algeria will wane. Perhaps life will improve in those countries. Perhaps the U.S. will become a less important force globally. We don’t know precisely what will happen. But if history’s a guide, we do know the world will shift. Nuttiness, on the other hand, knows no end. It will last as long as there are humans on this planet. But against nuts, there is almost no defence. Spies can eavesdrop on conversations between foreign masterminds and their domestic lackeys. Security services can infiltrate organized groups. But when a couple of people simply decide to do something crazy, who is to know? The RCMP says it was a tip from the Canadian Security and Intelligence Service that twigged police to the alleged B.C. plot. If this turns out to be a real plot, good on CSIS. It’s probably fair to say the agency was also lucky. Random, unfocused violence is near impossible to predict. No one knew Boston was going to happen. No one anticipated Newtown.

War on terror tactics questioned BY THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER — Just what triggered a five-month investigation involving the country’s national terrorism unit into two recent Muslim converts now accused of a Canada Day terror plot in British Columbia? And what role did police operatives play as the bombing plan unfolded that gave RCMP so much confidence the public was never in danger? As controversy mounts in the United States about the tactics employed in the American war on terror, those are some of the questions being asked after RCMP arrested John Nuttall and Amanda Korody this week for allegedly planning a bomb attack at the B.C. legislature during July 1 celebrations. “For me, that’s one of the most interesting questions that’s going to come out of this: How were they first alerted to these two and then what role did (police) play in encouraging or providing material?” Scott Watson, a University of Victoria expert in international security issues, said Thursday. Micheal Vonn, of the B.C. Civil Liberties Association, said there are similarities between this investigation and some American counter-terrorism investigations.



Hadfield celebrates first day of retirement CALGARY — Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield spent his first official day of retirement showing off his new pair of boots. “I had these specially made for the Stampede and it’s the mission patch that was made for the Canadian Space Agency and on the back we had them inlay a Maple Leaf,” Hadfield said as he held up a cowboy boot in preparation for playing marshal for the Calgary Stampede parade on Friday. “The thing I think is coolest is it’s alligator and it still flexes with the alligator hide. I’m like a six-year-old boy. I think that’s pretty cool.” Hadfield greeted his Twitter followers earlier Thursday. “Good morning, from the 1st day of my retirement. Headed to Calgary for the Stampede, booted, looking forward to seeing everyone there.”

“The real signal is the absolute confidence of the police that the devices would not work. This is certainly a suggestion that either they had control of the devices — perhaps they provided them, perhaps they knew the specifications of them were faulty,” she said. “Whatever that confidence is based on ... these are signals that the investigation may have had this component of facilitation and those are inherently controversial in terms of police tactics.” RCMP said a tip from the Canadian Security Intelligence Service prompted the investigation. RCMP Assistant Commissioner Wayne Rideout said the Integrated National Security Enforcement Team used “a variety of complex investigative and covert techniques.” In the United States, information leaks from former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden — now on the run — revealed the massive scale of intelligence agencies’ access to phone and Internet records of millions of Americans to aid in the fight against terrorism. One neighbour of Nuttall’s told reporters that she called police to report him after overhearing him in the street talking about blowing things up. But Nuttall and Korody were also active in several online communities,

and may have triggered an investigation themselves. Last year, they became regular posters on a paintball forum called Outlaw Paintball. Nuttall posted under the username Mujahid, another user who played paintball with the couple confirmed. The user asked that his name not be published. Mujahid also listed the same phone number as the couple used on other sites, including in comments on YouTube. In particular, the number was associated to a comment on the controversial “Innocence of Muslims” film that sparked protests last year. Using the name “ana nimity,” and the same profile picture of a cat holding a gun that Korody used on the paintball forum, the user became embroiled in a dispute with another user about nine months ago over a perceived insult to the prophet Muhammad. “I am a Mujahid and inshAllah I will die a Shaheed,” ana nimity wrote. Mujahid is a Muslim warrior engaged in a jihad, while a Shaheed is an Arabic term that is sometimes translated to mean holy martyr. Police were somewhat cryptic in explaining the motive for the alleged plot, saying the pair were inspired by an “al-Qaida ideology.”

But the portrait emerging of the couple is of troubled individuals who dabbled in various anti-social ideologies before identifying themselves as Muslim, Watson said. “I’m hesitant in a way to make their conversion to Islam a major element of the story,” he said. “Are these people terrorists or are they traditional-type criminals who were just trying to engage in violence because they’ve done that in the past? I just don’t see the political connection in this case,” he said. There have also been questions in the United States about the role undercover FBI agents have played in some of the plots they disrupted, including providing inert bombing materials and going so far in at least once case as driving a bomb suspect to the attack site. But Joshua Labove, a terrorism expert at Simon Fraser University, said neither the RCMP nor CSIS have the resources to monitor general activity online. “These two suspects made it onto the federal radar screen before likely they were having their Internet searches investigated or scrutinized,” Labove said.

Hadfield announced his retirement last month and his intention to move back to Canada following a 21-year career as an astronaut that was mostly spent in the U.S. Hadfield spent five months on the International Space Station where he thrilled those on earth with pictures, videos, songs and a stream of tweets. He became the first Canadian commander of the space station and he performed more than 130 science experiments and made numerous virtual visits to classrooms across the country. It was Hadfield’s third space flight. He was the only Canadian to visit the Russian space station Mir in 1995, and the first Canadian to perform a spacewalk when he installed Canadarm 2 in 2001.

coincide with the 35th anniversary of Fox’s cross-country, fundraising run for cancer research. The items include Fox’s own Marathon of Hope T-shirt, the jug he filled from the Atlantic Ocean when started his trek and a Team Canada hockey jersey given to him by Bobby Orr. During his run, Fox received countless letters from schoolchildren and some of them will also be on display. Fox lost a leg to cancer when he was 18 and three years later took up the marathon on a prosthetic limb. His

distinctive, hobbling gait became a symbol of stubborn determination and courage. He started his run in April 1980, dipping his leg in the ocean at St. John’s. The effort ended 147 days and 5,373 kilometres later outside Thunder Bay, Ont. when his cancer returned and forced him to abandon his project. He was showered with honours. He was the youngest person ever named a companion of the Order of Canada. He was given the Lou Marsh Award for 1980 as the nation’s top athlete.

War bride’s dream of meeting Mountie dressed in Red Serge comes true VANCOUVER — A British Columbia woman’s dream of meeting a Mountie dressed in formal uniform has come true — 78 years after she first laid eyes on an RCMP officer in Red Serge in her native Scotland. Jenny Stewart, 88, shared her secret wish with staff members at the hospice where she lives in Port Alberni, and before she knew it a Mountie showed up to visit her. Stewart first saw a Mountie at the British Empire Exhibition in Glasgow as a 10-year-old girl while she was on a school field trip from the village of Crosshouse, an hour’s train ride away. “It was all beautiful red apples,” she said of the Canadian exhibit. “But at the top stood somebody in red and it was a Mountie. I was absolutely taken by this Mountie and I said to my friend, ‘Maybe some day I can go to Canada and I can see a real Mountie again.”’ In 1946, Stewart became a war bride when she married a Canadian soldier and sailed to Halifax six months later aboard the RMS Aquitania to join her husband. The couple lived in Saskatoon before moving to B.C. in 1958. Walter Stewart died in the 1970s, and it wasn’t until this week that the woman met another man of her dreams — in the form of RCMP Const. Scott MacLeod. “I just have always admired the Mounties,” she said. “I just don’t know why.”

B.C. Supreme Court has final say on poisoning settlement after woman dies VERNON, B.C. — B.C. Supreme Court has confirmed a $440,000-settlement for the family of an Alberta mother of four who was accidentally poisoned at a B.C. hospital. Forty-year-old Brenda Gaida died in 2007 when she was given excessive doses of methotrexate — a drug that can be used to treat cancer patients — at Vernon’s Jubilee Hospital for a pre-existing skin condition while on vacation with her family. According to court documents, Gaida was mistakenly given the medication daily rather than weekly. After spending 16 days at the hospital, her family arranged for her to be flown to a hospital near her home in Edmonton, where she died two months later. The Vernon hospital and the Interior Health Authority, admitted that Gaida died from poisoning, and that four doctors were at fault for negligent care and treatment. Court documents say the parties sought a settlement in 2011, and while the hospital said both sides had agreed to $440,000, Gaida’s husband Brian Gaida said no binding settlement had ever been concluded. Gaida, who had wanted a settlement of more than $1 million, said his former lawyer urged him to accept the $440,000 because it was likely the most he could get.

LeBreton, Ablonczy step away from Conservative cabinet table BY THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — Prime Minister Stephen Harper is getting more blank space on his canvas to draw up a new cabinet, as the number of departing ministers rises. A major shuffle is expected this month and will include the people Harper wants to be standardbearers for the policies the party will take into the 2015 election. The prime minister has asked his caucus to let him know their re-election plans as he considers who will get seats at the cabinet table. Marjory LeBreton, government leader in the Senate, said Thursday she’s giving up her post. Diane Ablonczy, minister of state for foreign affairs, said she won’t run in 2015. Earlier this week, Ted Menzies, minister of state for finance, said he won’t run again. Last month, Fisheries Minister Keith Ashfield asked to be relieved as he fights cancer. Public Safety Minister Vic Toews is also expected to retire, but he has not yet made a formal announcement. All this leaves significant space for Harper as he rearranges roles and brings in new faces. Calgary MP Michelle Rempel and Ontario’s Chris Alexander, both parliamentary secretaries, are among the names often raised as potential candidates for promotion.

Cocaine stashed in bathroom at Pearson airport BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — Border officials say they’ve seized more than 18 kilograms of suspected cocaine stashed in a bathroom at Toronto’s Pearson airport. The Canada Border Services Agency made the announcement Thursday, weeks after the June 17 discovery. The agency says its officers noticed suspicious packages in the men’s bathroom in the Terminal 3 customs inspection hall and found 16 parcels tucked into an overhang above the stalls. It says preliminary testing suggests they hold cocaine but the Mounties, who have the packages, will send a sample to Health Canada to make a final determination. RCMP spokeswoman Michele Paradis says officers also found a cellphone, batteries, a charging cord and a battery charger and that a forensic analy-

WINNIPEG — The number of adults charged with child abuse in a small Manitoba Mennonite community has grown to 13. Nine adults are facing new charges in addition to four people charged previously, Cpl. Miles Hiebert of the Manitoba RCMP said Thursday. “There have been 13 people charged with various offences in relation to that ongoing investigation,” said Hiebert. “We are not naming the community.” Almost two dozen children were seized from the southern Manitoba community in March following accusations in court documents that some boys and girls were assaulted with cattle prods, whips and leather straps. Documents from Manitoba Family Services show the ages of the children range from nine months to 15 years. Two adults from the tiny orthodox community were charged in March with various counts of assault and assault with a weapon on several youngsters between July 2011 and January of this year. Two more adults appeared in court in late June to face similar charges involving 12 alleged victims. The allegations are similar — that the assaults were repeated and over roughly the same 18-month time frame. Court documents show the children seized are from five families, including one family of nine kids ranging in age from one to 13. None of the allegations has been proven in court. The identities of the children are protected under a publication ban.

sis is being done of the items for fingerprints and other possible clues. Despite the need for lab testing, Paradis says the force is “99 per cent” sure the results will come back positive for cocaine. A recently released intelligence report by the border services agency says cocaine continues to be smuggled into Canada in significant quantities by air, sea, land and by post. Three factors that determine the quantity of cocaine smuggled into Canada are the global supply of the drug, the size of the domestic market and the degree to which Canada is used as a transhipment point for cocaine destined to other countries, says the August 2012 report, obtained under the Access to Information Act. In Canada, the drug is primarily distributed from the lower mainland of British Columbia, Toronto and Montreal.

And the prime minister is already signalling one structural change to the cabinet as a direct response to the Senate expense scandal that is dogging his government. Whoever replaces LeBreton as the government leader in the upper chamber will not be a member of the cabinet, a government source said on condition of anonymity. The government has recently amped up its rhetoric on bringing in an elected Senate. “The next Senate leader will not be a member of the ministry, so that would leave us with a 100 per cent elected cabinet,” said the source. LeBreton, 73, is only two years away from the Senate retirement age. She said she would stay on until then as a Conservative senator for Ontario. A former appointments director and deputy chief of staff to Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, LeBreton was named to the Senate in 1993. “I intend to step up my efforts in support of meaningful Senate reform and also actively back the new strengthened rules we introduced regarding Senate expenses,” she said in a statement. LeBreton was the government’s main spokesperson in the Senate throughout the controversy over improper expense claims. Harper issued a statement thanking LeBreton for her services. She was an adviser to Harper on campaigns as well as on Parliament Hill.

BACKUP QB SCORES PAIR OF TOUCHDOWNS IN VICTORY OVER PUNCHLESS ALOUETTES BY THE CANADIAN PRESS MONTREAL — Turnovers are supposed to be deadly in football, but the Winnipeg Blue Bombers committed five of them and it turned out just fine. A smothering defence that sacked Anthony Calvillo seven times came to the rescue as the Blue Bombers downed the Montreal Alouettes 19-11 on Thursday night. A pair of touchdowns by backup quarterback Justin Goltz, two Mike Renaud singles and a late field goal by Justin

Palardy was all Winnipeg needed to earn a split of a back-toback series to start the CFL season. Winnipeg lost 38-33 loss to Montreal at home last week. “The team that turns the ball over usually loses,” said starting QB Buck Pierce, who threw an interception and saw his team fumble four times. “Our defence was able to get some back in the second half, but we have to take better care of the football. “I’ll take that onus on me. The interception early, you can’t do much about that, but the fumbles, we can’t have

those.” The night ended with concern for Bombers defensive tackle Bryant Turner, who was injured in the final minute. He walked off the field on his own power, but was given oxygen by doctors while on a stretcher on the sidelines after the game. There was no immediate word on his condition. “I’m scared for him right now,” said defensive co-ordinator Casey Creehan. “I don’t know what it is, but I know he’s a tough kid and he’ll be fine.

“He had some problems breathing, but he’s going to be fine.” Turner was a key figure in holding Montreal’s normally potent offence to only nine first downs and 136 yards in net offence for the game. Calvillo completed 16 for 135 yards. A handful of times, turnovers gave Montreal the ball in good field position, but they got only four points from them. Calvillo called that “disgusting,” and rookie head coach Dan Hawkins agreed.

Flyers over the Stars, Detroit Red Wings and almost a dozen other potential suitors, it was back to normal. There was no other choice. “It changed the dynamics of things,” Nill said. “But now it’s kind of happened and over with and everybody kind of moves on. Now you’re back to your original plan, depending on whether you got these guys or not.” Every team’s original plan is based on a lower salary cap and — DON MALONEY PHOENIX COYOTES GM the consensus that it will go back up for the 2014-15 season.

As Dallas Stars GM Jim Nill prepared for ing a high-revenue, big-market team. “We’re no different than any other July 5 and the canvas, he and his colleagues team,” Toronto Maple Leafs GM Dave Nonis around the league altered course as the likes of Vincent Lecavalier and Danny Bri- said. “We have to operate within that same ere were available thanks to compliance framework, and that 6 million bucks coming off the table makes (moves) a lot more diffibuyouts. “It kind of put a hold on the free-agent cult than most people would expect.” After using a compliance buyout on cenperiod as far as who you’re looking at as a team,” Nill said. “These guys are all high- tre Mikhail Grabovski, the Maple Leafs end players, and we were all prepared for have roughly $24 million under the salary who was going to be the free agents to kind cap, second to only the New York Islandof chase, then all of a sudden we had five ers.

NHL general managers know nothing about unrestricted free agency is free. They understand most of the time they’re going to overpay, in years and term, to get the player they want. This year is not expected to be any different in that regard. But everything else is, thanks to a drop in the salary cap, compliance buyouts and a new interview period that gives teams and players time to talk before the market opens at noon Friday. “I think it’s a completely different ballgame this time around,” Boston Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli said. “I think there’s a general caution. There may be a rush on a few guys, but I just think this is the first time the cap has gone down so I think we’re in new territory.” New territory because no one knows exactly what to expect once deals can officially be signed. There’s some level of trepidation on the part of the men who typically are known for being steadfast with their movements. “We’re all sort of walking through it and how to best position ourselves to attract the free agents,” Phoenix Coyotes GM Don Maloney said. “We went eight years with a set routine and now when you add the lateness of the Stanley Cup final to the whirlwind of the draft last week to hitting the free-agent

George returns to Riders in time to face Stamps BY THE CANADIAN PRESS Tearrius George doesn’t play the role of spectator very well. The six-foot-four, 258-pound defensive lineman missed the Saskatchewan Roughriders’ season-opening 39-18 win over Edmonton last week while serving a suspension. George was forced to watch the game on TV at home and got into hot water with his wife. “I had to watch it in the basement,” George told reporters in Regina this week. “My wife sent me down to the basement, (with) all the yelling and screaming. “It’s real, real difficult because you’re sitting at home and you’re like, ’Man, I would have went that way,’ or, ’Man, I would have done this.’ I was texting guys during the game so at halftime they had a couple of messages from me.” George was suspended for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Calgary quarterback Drew Tate in last year’s West Division semifinal. The CFL issued the ban follow-

ing the playoff game but ruled because the Stampeders had won that George would have to serve the suspension to start the 2013 campaign. The good news for Saskatchewan is George is expected to start Friday night in the Riders’ home opener against none other than Calgary. “I’m the little kid out of the yard this week,” said George. “I’m ready to play.” Like Saskatchewan, Calgary opened its season on a winning note, downing the B.C. Lions 4432 last week. Riders head coach Corey Chamblin is confident the suspension taught George a valuable lesson. “He doesn’t want to have to sit out again,” Chamblin said. “I think that’s the biggest positive is to make sure that when he plays, he plays to the whistle and not after the whistle.” Calgary running back Jon Cornish, the CFL’s top Canadian last season, played a big role in the Stampeders’ opening victory.

He ran for 172 yards and scored two TDs against the Lions. Last season, Chamblin publicly stated prior to a game against Calgary that Riders’ defensive players would lose their jobs if Cornish ran for more than 100 yards in the contest. Not only did Saskatchewan win the game 30-25 on Sept. 23, but Cornish rushed for 67 yards on 12 attempts. There was no such edict this week from Chamblin, at least not publicly. “We watched a little bit of film and he (Chamblin) made a couple of points so I think it’s an unspoken challenge,” George said. “He might not have come out and said it in the media, but he definitely made a point during film to show us how (Cornish) was running through a couple of people and what we cannot let happen.” Calgary didn’t emerge totally unscathed from its opening contest as defensive tackle Corey Mace suffered a season-ending

shoulder injury. Two years ago, Mace, 27, was lost for the entire 2011 campaign after rupturing his Achilles tendon in the season opener. “It popped out and I thought I just dislocated it,” Mace told reporters in Calgary this week. “I put a sleeve on it at halftime and during the game, it kept slipping out. “Any time you get injured, it’s disappointing but first game of the season is very disappointing. To do it all over again like 2011, I really don’t have words for that.” The six-foot-three, 285-pound Mace will now attempt to serve as a mentor to his younger teammates as he recovers from his latest setback. “There’s pluses to it being that I have so much time to recover for the next season,” he said. “It just sucks, man, to be honest. “So it’s just now helping out with the young guys and getting these guys going. We have a lot of guys who can still get the job done.”

Big trade and big signings highlight busy day in NHL RED DEER PRODUCT PART OF DEAL BETWEEN DALLAS AND BOSTON


Toronto Argonauts’ Marcus Ball, left, and Brandon Isaac, right, tackle B.C. Lions’ Andrew Harris as he rushes for a first down during the first half of a CFL game in Vancouver, B.C., on Thursday. The Lions won the game 24-16.

Lions take bite out of Argos THE CANADIAN PRESS Lions 24 Argonauts 16 VANCOUVER — Andrew Harris ran for 103 yards and a touchdown as the B.C. Lions beat the Toronto Argonauts 24-16 in CFL action Thursday night. The Lions (1-1) made up for a poor effort in Calgary last week as they won the home opener of their 60th season before a crowd of 25,255 at B.C. Place Stadium. The Argos dropped to 1-1 as they remain winless in Vancouver since 2002. Toronto hasn’t started a season 2-0 since 1997. Harris atoned for a poor showing in B.C.’s season-opening loss in

Calgary a week earlier. He also caught six passes for 49 yards. B.C. quarterback Travis Lulay completed 20 of 34 passes for 249 yards and a touchdown. Toronto QB Ricky Ray was good on 28 of 39 pass attempts for 215 yards, and ran for a meaningless touchdown in the game’s final minute. Controversial defensive lineman Khalif Mitchell played his first game against B.C. after being traded to the Argos in the off-season. He and his linemates applied steady pressure on Lulay, but the Lions quarterback eluded it most of the time. The Argos only managed one sack, by Mitchell, and his late needless

roughing-the-passer penalty set up a fourth-quarter Harris touchdown after Toronto had reduced its deficit to 17-9. Instead, it was the B.C. defence that shined, limiting Toronto to three field goals until the game was decided. The game featured two replacement kickers, who accounted for much of the scoring as Hugh O’Neill filled in for injured B.C. kicker Paul McCallum. McCallum is out with a groin injury suffered in the warmup before the first pre-season game. The Argos’ Noel Prefontaine substituted for Swayze Waters after he injured his groin on a convert attempt in Week 1.

Youth rural soccer championships taking place throughout Central Alberta Central Alberta will be busy hosting a number of Alberta youth rural soccer championships, which begin Friday and run through Sunday. The U12 boys and girls’ tier IV finals are in Three Hills with the U16 boys’ tier IV finals and the U18 girls’

tier IV championship in Stettler. The U16 tier IV girls are in Ponoka and the U18 tier IV boys in Lacombe. The provincial U16 tier II boys’ and girls’ finals are slated for Red Deer, Aug. 16-18.

JUNIOR GOLF PROVINCIALS EDSON — Matt Codd of the Red Deer Golf and Country Club (RDG&CC) carded a 73 Thursday and entered today’s final round of the Alberta junior boys championship 12 shots back of co-leaders Tyler Saunders and Jack Wood. Codd’s three-round total of six-over 222 included earlier scores of 76-73. He’s tied for 10th heading into the final 18 holes. Saunders, representing Edmonton Glendale, and Wood, of Banff Springs, shot 67 and 71 Thursday to tie for the lead at six-under 210. Jared Nichols of Wolf Creek shot 76 Thursday and is tied for 17th with a 225 total, while Brett Pasula of the RDG&CC fired a third-round 76 and is tied for 22nd at 227. Meanwhile, Chandler McDowell of the RDG&CC checked in with a 73 and is tied for 31st at 230, Logan Hill of the RDG&CC is tied for 37th at 232 after

shooting 72, and Jaxon Lynn of Sylvan Lake struggled to an 85 and is tied for 46th with a 238 total. ● PONOKA — Jaclyn Lee of the Calgary Glencoe Golf and Country Club all but wrapped up the provincial junior girls’ championships following the third round of the 72-hole affair Thursday. Lee shot an even par 72 for a 218 total, which is seven strokes ahead of Brianna Carrels of Lethbridge’s Paradise Canyon and Sabrine Garrison of Calgary’s Country Hills, who had a 75 and 74 respectively. Katie Griffiths of Red Deer, who is registered out of Lacombe, had a 90 Thursday and is tied for 15th at 264. Shaye Leidenius of the host Ponoka Community Club is 20th and Daria Leidenius 28th at 273 and 302 respectively. Shaye shot a third round 89 and Daria 97.

Flyers captain Claude Giroux isn’t leaving Philadelphia any time soon, Danny Briere is heading home to his native Quebec and Patrik Elias is staying in New Jersey. And leave it to the Boston Bruins and Dallas Stars to steal the headlines Thursday by completing a blockbuster trade a day before the start of the NHL’s free agency period. In exchanging seven players, the rebuilding Stars acquired forwards Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley in exchange for veteran forward Loui Eriksson and prospects Matt Fraser of Red Deer, Joe Morrow and Reilly Smith. Fraser, a forward, signed a two-day deal with the Stars last week. The trade should be a benefit to the Bruins in their approach to free agency. They were able to clear about $4.75 million in space under the salary cap, which they can use to add and resign players. Otherwise, the list of high-profile free agents continued to shrink even before the official signing period begins at noon Friday. Briere and Elias became the latest to be taken off a market that’s already minus Vincent Lecavalier, who signed with Philadelphia on Tuesday. The Flyers weren’t done making splashes either. A person familiar with negotiations told The Associated Press that Giroux had agreed to an eight-year contract extension worth over $64 million. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the contract has not been signed and the extension not revealed by the Flyers. The deal comes as Giroux was entering the final year of his contract and with the Flyers in the midst of reshaping a team that missed the playoffs last season. A two-time 25-goal scorer, Giroux is the Flyers top play-making offensive threat. He had 13 goals and 35 assists for 48 points in 48 games last season. Briere wasted little time finding a new team by signing a two-year, $8 million contract with the Montreal Canadiens. A person familiar with Briere’s contract revealed the value of the deal on the condition of anonymity because the Canadiens did not disclose that figure. It’s a homecoming of sorts for the French Canadian, who grew up in Gatineau, Quebec, and spent his junior career in Drummondville. Briere, a seven-time 25-goal scorer, became a free agent after the Flyers bought out the two remaining years on his contract. The Devils re-signed Elias to a three-year, $16.5 million deal, locking up the franchise’s career goals and points leader before he was eligible to test the market. He has spent his entire 15-year career with the Devils, during which he has amassed 375 goals, 555 assists and 930 points in 1,090 career games. Elias has also led the Devils in points eight times, including this past

season when he finished with 36 (14 goals, 22 assists) in 48 games. New Jersey also re-signed veteran forward Dainius Zubrus to a threeyear, $9.3 million contract. A second person familiar with the contract revealed the terms of Zubrus’ deal on the condition of anonymity because the Devils didn’t disclose those numbers. Defenceman Keith Ballard didn’t wait long to find a new team. Not long after having the final two years of his contract bought out by Vancouver, Ballard agreed to a two-year deal with Minnesota on Thursday. Other teams were busy taking advantage of their final opportunity to free up salary cap space. Toronto forward Mikhail Grabovski headed a list of five players that were placed on unconditional waivers with the intention of having their contracts bought out. “It was not an easy decision to make as Mikhail made numerous contributions to our hockey club,” Toronto general manager Dave Nonis said. “This is a roster move that will give us salary cap flexibility moving forward.” The Maple Leafs’ decision to waive Grabovski came after they signed him to a five-year, $27.5 million contract in March. New Jersey goalie Johan Hedberg, Colorado defenceman Greg Zanon, Nashville defenceman Hal Gill and Edmonton centre Eric Belanger were also placed on unconditional waivers and are eligible to have their contracts bought out. The person who revealed Zubrus’ contract number provided the list of players on the condition of anonymity because the NHL does not release that list. Players who have contracts bought out on compliance buyouts don’t count against the salary cap. They do receive two-thirds of their remaining salary spread out over double the years left on the deals. Grabovski is a three-time 20-goal scorer, but he is coming off an inconsistent season in which he had nine goals and seven assists in 48 games. His best season came with Toronto in 2010-11 when he had 29 goals and 29 assists in 81 games. The Maple Leafs’ decision to free up cap space is a clear sign they intend to be aggressive in free agency to continue improving a team coming off its first playoff appearance since 2004. The Leafs were knocked out by Boston in a seven-game, first-round series. They’ll have to choose from a dwindling list of impact players, such as Mike Ribeiro, Nathan Horton, David Clarkson, and aging stars such as Jarome Iginla and Jaromir Jagr. Hedberg’s release adds yet another veteran goalie to a growing list of free agents at that position. It is a group that includes Tim Thomas, who is exploring the possibility of a comeback after taking a season off; Rick DiPietro, whose contract was bought out by the New York Islanders; and Ilya Bryzgalov, whose contract was bought out by the Flyers.

RED DEER RIGGERS SPRUCE GROVE — The Red Deer Riggers pulled out a tight victory in Sunburst Baseball League play Thursday but it took and extra inning to get the job done. The Riggers got some great pitching with timely hitting to pull out the 3-2 win in the tenth inning over the Parkland

White Sox. Mike Ronnie drove in the winning run as part of his three-for-five night at the plate. Jared Chatwood had a great game, slamming a double and triple in five plate appearances. Shayne Court added three hits. Davin Gulbransen started on the mound

and went 7 1/3 inning giving up two runs — one earned. Matt Davis threw the final 2 2/3 innings getting the win while giving up one hit. The White Sox got strong pitching from Myles Either who went the distance. The Riggers next action is Tuesday against the Ft. Saskatchewan Athletics at 7:30 p.m. at Great Chief Park.

Titans improve record after win over Calgary Rams BY DANNY RODE ADVOCATE STAFF

The Red Deer Titan Bryn Holman passes to a teammate during a game against the Calgary Rams at the Red Deer Titans Rugby Park on Thursday evening. The game started at 8 p.m. They have such a strong program and the club tries to be involved with a lot of teams in helping coach. Every high school involved has men’s and women’s teams and of course not all the players come out with us, but we get around 20

for the U19 program. Right now there are so many other sports and things for the kids to do, but still the benefits for us are immense.” The Titans women have played at all levels in the province from the premier

drive ended with Turner’s third sack, which caused Calvillo to fumble the ball to Zach Anderson at the Montreal 23. Palardy booted a 27-yard field goal.


CFL: Frustrating “It was frustrating because our defence gave us turnovers,” said Hawkins. “We had some short fields and we were unable to capitalize. “Last week we struggled and we were up by a few points and this week we struggled and we were down, so we’ve got to keep getting better. It starts with me.” It appears the Alouettes offence is still adjusting to a new coaching staff as it failed to move the ball until a late drive produced their only touchdown from S.J. Green. Sean Whyte added a field goal and a single. The Bombers defence made it especially tough on Calvillo on a muggy night at Percival Molson Stadium. “I’m going to buy them all dinner tonight,” said Pierce. “It’s a team effort. “When they needed to be picked up, we picked them up. When we struggled in the second half, we leaned on them. And they got key stops for us countless times. I’m glad we gave them a bit of a cushion going into the last few minutes.” A pass from Pierce that was tipped by Jerald Brown for a Scooter Brown interception on the Winnipeg 21 turned into a 16-yard Whyte field goal 6:38 into the game. Winnipeg responded with a 10-play, 105-yard drive capped by a four-yard TD run around the left side by Goltz 2:18 into the second quarter. Goltz had gone in on a short yardage situation and stayed in for the next play. Montreal native Cory Watson made three key catches on the drive. He had six catches for 114 yards to lead the receivers. The Bombers added a single to take an 8-3 lead at the intermission. On Winnipeg’s opening drive of the second half, Kyries Hebert stripped the ball from Pierce and John Bowman recovered on the Montreal 51 to end a promising drive. The crowd of 22,134 got to its feet in vain 11:28 into the second half as Hebert ran back a Pierce fumble for a TD, but he was ruled down by touch on the play after a video review and Montreal settled for a punt single. Winnipeg answered with its second single of the game early in the fourth quarter, and then things got at least a little interesting. Desia Dunn picked off Calvillo and Pierce hit Rory Kohlert with a 47-yard toss to set up Goltz’ one-yard TD off tackle at 8:57. A four-play, 68-yard drive capped by Green’s 17-yard TD catch brought the Alouettes to within five points with 2:10 left to play. But Montreal’s next

CAP: Stretching payroll But for teams like Toronto that have the budget to spend to the cap, it shouldn’t be difficult given the players available. Centres Mike Ribeiro, Stephen Weiss and Tyler Bozak; wingers Nathan Horton, Jarome Iginla and David Clarkson; defencemen Andrew Ference and Ryan Whitney and goaltenders Tim Thomas and Evgeni Nabokov are among those expected to sign sooner rather than later. Realignment, including better odds of making the playoffs in the Western Conference than the East, adds another wrinkle. For some small- or middlemarket teams, it’s a complication. “We’re really at a point where we’re really stretching our payroll as far as we can based on our business, based on our revenues,” Carolina Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford said. “For us, it’s more about the realignment than it is about where the cap is because I think probably in the next year to two, the cap’s just going to start to grow and grow and grow again because the league has done so well and the revenues will continue to grow.” Most around hockey expect the salary cap to reach back into the $70-million range soon, but Chiarelli pointed out that nothing’s “set in stone.” The same can be said for the new interview period that began late Tuesday night. Teams and players had permission to speak starting then but not negotiate terms of contracts. That was made clear in a memo deputy commissioner Bill

Daly sent to all 30 teams Thursday afternoon. In the midst of that interview period, general managers weren’t quite sure what to make of it. Nill wondered if it might “muddy the waters” between teams and free agents. “Guys are talking to more teams, there’s more scenarios,” Nill said. “There might be a player that thought, ’Boy, I was going to go to this team,’ and all of a sudden he gets calls from 10 other teams and the dynamics change and now he’s like, ’Boy, I don’t know what I’m going to do for sure.”’

Titans 28 Rams 10 The Red Deer Titans aren’t the biggest team in the league, nor the most experienced, but they don’t lack talent. The Titans ran their record to 2-0 in the Southern Alberta Women’s Second Division Summer League with a 28-10 victory over the Calgary Rams at Titans Park Thursday. “We’re very young, with Courtney Armstrong our oldest player and she’s just over 30,” said Titans head coach Ray Rogers. “We have three or four new backs, but the main core of players have come up through our U19 program, so they have experience in that aspect. As well Dacey Livingstone plays with the University of Victoria and Amy Hawkins with the University of Calgary. Michelle Novotney played in Toronto with the Lions.” Aly Bowd has the most experience, having played university as well as with Team Alberta. “Her whole family has a lot of experience,” said Rogers. Rogers first joined the program in 1999 before going overseas. He returned in 2008, so he’s been part of one of the top programs in the province for some time. He credits a strong Titans Club for the continued development of both the men’s and women’s programs and feels the Central Alberta High School League plays a major role in the club’s success. “Immense,” he said. “And not just for the women, but the men as well.

league on down. This year they missed out of playing in the Alberta First Division when they lost their final match of the Spring League, finishing at 4-2. Now they have to concentrate on winning the South Second Division and the Division II provincials. “If we make it that far,” said Rogers referring to the provincials. The Titans play six league games before the playoffs. “Everything will be done before the players leave for university,” he said. The Titans could use a bit more size, but “we use our speed and a little bit of technique to get outside and wear other teams down.” The Titans controlled play Thursday until late in the game when the Rams were able to make it respectable. “We also got everyone in the game as we don’t want players losing interest,” said Rogers, who is also missing a couple of veteran players with injuries. “We’ve been playing since May and overall have been fairly injury free, but there are a couple of players out. Then again the younger players have stepped in and the injured players will have to work hard to get their spots back.” Novotney, Livingstone, Alexa Stang and Avery Lachambre scored tries for the Titans Thursday with Novotney and Bowd kicking converts. The Titans return to action July 13 in Calgary against the Saracens, who are also 2-0, and return home July 20 against the Saints. They also have a makeup game at home against the Saracens and play the Rams in Calgary.

Tigers crush Blue Jays THE CANADIAN PRESS Tigers 11 Blue Jays 1 TORONTO — Justin Verlander threw seven shutout innings and Austin Jackson hit a two-run homer and scored four times as the Detroit Tigers crushed the Toronto Blue Jays 11-1 on Thursday night. Verlander (9-5) allowed just three hits and two walks while striking out five. Detroit (4638) won the last three games of the four-game set to hand the Blue Jays their first home series loss in over two months. Maicer Izturis hit a two-out single in the ninth inning to bring Josh Thole home with Toronto’s only run. The Tigers outhit the Blue Jays 16-6 in front of 35,978 fans on a warm, comfortable evening at Rogers Centre. Toronto (41-44) fell three games under the .500 mark and deeper into the American League East basement. The Central Division-leading Tigers moved 1 ½ games up on the Cleveland Indians, who dropped a 10-7 decision to the Kansas City Royals.

Jackson opened the game by lining the first pitch from Esmil Rogers (3-4) into rightcentre field. Andy Dirks drove him in with a double and moved to third on a Torii Hunter groundout. Dirks scored on a single by cleanup hitter Prince Fielder. The Tigers tacked on two more runs in the third inning. Jackson got things started again with a single and Dirks followed with a walk. Jackson came across on a double by Hunter and Dirks moved to third. After a Fielder strikeout, Rogers made a nice play by snagging a comebacker from Victor Martinez and chasing down Dirks in noman’s land for the second out. Jhonny Peralta doubled to score Hunter and make it a 4-0 game. With two runners in scoring position, Rogers got out of the jam when Alex Avila lined out to centre field. Verlander, meanwhile, breezed through the Toronto lineup over the first half of the game. He was perfect until giving up a two-out single to Edwin Encarnacion in the fourth inning.

Lisicki escapes hole to reach final WIMBLEDON

LONDON — Spurred on by Steffi Graf and inspired by an array of other sporting greats, Sabine Lisicki pulled herself out of a big hole and climbed right into the Wimbledon final. The 23rd-seeded German, a Wimbledon semifinalist two years ago, overcame a 3-0 deficit in the third set to beat Agnieszka Radwanska 6-4, 2-6, 9-7 on Thursday and advance to her first Grand Slam final. On Saturday, she will face Marion Bartoli, a 6-1, 6-2 winner over Kirsten Flipkens in the other semifinal. “It’s another challenge, and I’m looking forward to it,” said Lisicki, who beat defending champion Serena Williams in the fourth round. The men’s semifinals are set for Friday, with top-seeded Novak Djokovic playing Juan Martin del Potro and 2012 finalist Andy Murray up against surprising 24th-seeded Jerzy Janowicz. Saturday’s final will be just the second at Wimbledon in the 45-year Open era between two women who have never won a Grand Slam title. Although Bartoli has the edge in experience after reaching the 2007 final at the All England Club, Lisicki may have the bigger advantage with a 3-1 record against the Frenchwoman, including a quarterfinal win at Wimbledon in 2011 in their most recent match. Lisicki started off Thursday playing aggressive tennis on Centre Court, and it yielded immediate results. She won 22 of her 30 points on serve and broke Radwanska once. But soon after, Lisicki’s serve deserted her, and so did her lead. Lisicki lost all four of her service games in the second set, with the lowlight coming in the final game. Leading 30-0, she lost four straight points, including two double-faults. “She made some really good points. I made a few errors too many,” said Lisicki, the first German to reach the Wimbledon final since Graf in 1999. “But I regained my focus and game in

the third set, and that’s the main part.” Graf made have played a small role in the comeback. The seven-time Wimbledon champion sent Lisicki a text message before the match to wish her luck. “She told me to go for it, and I’m just so happy,” Lisicki said. “I was just fighting for every single point out there. Fought my heart out there.” Besides Graf, Lisicki also named a few others who have helped inspire her to come back from a serious left ankle injury in 2010, including ski great Hermann Maier and NFL quarterback Drew Brees. “I read his book while I was injured,” Lisicki said of Maier, an Austrian who won several Olympic and world championship medals. “Almost losing his leg and then to come back and be the world champion in his sport; was an unbelievable story. “Also Drew Brees ... He has torn everything there was in the shoulder, and he still came back and was one of the best.” Bartoli needed no such motivation, making quick work of Flipkens with her two-handed backhands and forehands, mixed with little hops between points, as is her custom. “I played great. I executed very well. I hit lobs, passing shots, winners, returns, everything worked out perfectly,” said Bartoli, who won in 62 minutes. “When I fell on the grass after match point, it was just so emotional. I dreamed about that moment, about returning to the Wimbledon final.” The last time she made it this far, it didn’t turn out so well. She lost to Venus Williams 6-4, 6-1. But this time is different, or at least Bartoli will hope it is. “I’m serving better,” Bartoli said. “I do just everything a bit better than what I was doing six years ago. If I would play myself now, with my game six years ago compared with my game today, I would probably be beating myself quite easily because I’m just doing everything better.”

Gainey, Wagner share lead after first round at Greenbrier THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — The moustache is gone, and for one round at least, Johnson Wagner also didn’t have to deal with playing bad golf. Wagner and Tommy Gainey each shot an 8-under 62 on Thursday to share a two-stroke lead after the first round of the Greenbrier Classic. Webb Simpson and Jin Park were close behind after 64s. Daniel Summerhays, Tag Ridings, Steven Bowditch and 50-year-old Neal Lancaster were another shot back. Players were able to lift, clean and place their balls Thursday after rain fell prior to the start of play. Gainey and Wagner had bogey-free rounds in the morning. Wagner was 8 under after 12 holes but finished with six straight pars. Both could use a good week — Gainey is 125th in season tour winnings, while Wagner ranks 148th. Wagner doesn’t have a top-10 finish this year and the three-time tour champion hasn’t won since the 2012 Sony Open. In his last seven tournaments, he’s missed six cuts and withdrew from the Memorial. “The last couple of months have been really hard,” Wagner said. “I just haven’t been much fun to be around. It’s just been tough. Nobody likes to be bad at what they do, especially golfers.” A product of Virgin-

ia Tech — which is less than two hours from the Old White TPC course — Wagner chipped in for eagle on the par-5 12th, then finished with six straight pars. “I’ve been disappointed with 76s and 79s the last month, so I’m very happy to be disappointed with a 62 today,” said Wagner, who shaved his well-talked-about moustache in a nod to his wife for their seventh wedding anniversary on Monday. “I didn’t get her a gift. So I thought maybe surprising her with a clean lip would suffice,” he said. The moustache will return at some point. “I love irritating my wife too much to let it go for too long,” he said. Gainey’s first PGA Tour victory came last fall at the McGladrey Classic, but like Wagner he has missed more cuts than he’s made this year. Nicknamed “Two Gloves” for wearing gloves on both hands, Gainey had a serious talk with his wife, two other family members and his agent in the past month to try to figure out how to turn around his bad fortunes. Gainey said he had stopped having fun on the course. “I had gotten away from that and I’m trying to get back into that now,” he said. “I felt like I knew what was going on. I was putting too much pressure on myself.” Not Thursday, when he missed just one fairway with a new driver in his bag.

NBA TRADE THE ASSOCIATED PRESS New Orleans, Portland and Sacramento have agreed to a three-team trade sending guard Tyreke Evans to the Pelicans, centre Robin Lopez to the Trail Blazers and guard Greivis Vasquez to the Kings, people familiar with the deal said. The people, who spoke on condition of anonymity because NBA rules prevent confirmation of trades until July 10, say Portland is sending second-round draft pick Jeff Withey to New Orleans and a future draft pick to Sacramento as part of the deal, which was first reported by ESPN. The trade also sends guard Terrel Harris to Portland. Evans, a former Rookie of the Year and restricted free agent, averaged 15.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.5 assists with the Kings last season, his fourth. At 6-foot-6, he has demonstrated the versatility to play either guard position, or even small forward. The 7-foot Lopez, who was New Orleans’ starting centre after arriving in a trade with Phoenix, averaged 11.3 points to go with 5.6 rebounds and 1.6 blocks.

“Hitting out of the rough is no fun,” Gainey said. “Trust me, I’ve been doing it for the past three years.” Wagner admitted he had thoughts of shooting 59. Gainey knows what it’s like to flirt with the magic number, which only five players have attained in official PGA Tour events. He shot 60 in the McGladrey Classic’s final round.

Teamwork Miller plans to ‘drip feed’ young plays big part at Canadian players into lineup Stage 6 of Tour GOLD CUP MONTPELLIER, France — Stage 6 of the 100th Tour de France was a textbook demonstration of teamwork. Like playing pass the parcel, an Australian deliberately handed over the race lead to a South African teammate and friend, so he could be the first rider from that country to wear the famed yellow jersey. And the German, Andre Greipel, who won the stage with a fierce finishing sprint, owed a debt of gratitude to teammates who plied him with drinks all afternoon, ferrying bottles back and forth from cars at the back of the race, so he didn’t melt in the scorching sun. “Room service,” the big German said lightheartedly. As the new leader of cycling’s showcase race, Daryl Impey can look forward to some firstclass treatment, too. Being the first South African to wear the yellow jersey “will definitely change my life,” Impey said. Rugby, cricket and, for the majority black population, football, are the big sports for South Africans. Impey can shop in the malls of Johannesburg, where he trains and lives, without being recognized, said his wife, Alexandra. But that was before his buddy on the Orica GreenEdge team, Simon Gerrans, passed him the race lead at the Tour. “Wearing the yellow jersey now is definitely going to change things for cycling, put it on the map in South Africa,” said Impey. “Hopefully people will start recognizing me, maybe.” Gerrans knows the feeling. To wear canary yellow at the Tour is to be king for a day — or more depending on how long the rider keeps the lead. He had it for two unforgettable days. Fans clapped and cheered when they saw him. Reporters chased him. A particularly boisterous crowd of Aussie fans played air guitar for him. The jersey also carries extra responsibilities: news conferences, podium ceremonies and other distractions can eat into rest and recovery — so important for riders to survive the three-week trek over 3,404 kilometres (2,115 miles). Injuries from crashes have already culled seven of the 198 riders who started in Corsica on June 29. Impey worked for Gerrans earlier at the Tour, helping him win Stage 3 and riding hard in the time trial Orica won as a team in Stage 4. Gerrans figured it was time for some pay-back. So on Thursday he rode in five seconds behind Impey in Montpellier. That was enough for the race lead to pass from one to the other, because they started the day with the exact same overall time, with Gerrans in first place and Impey second. “Daryl was a huge part of me getting the jersey so I thought it was a nice gesture to be able to pass it on to him now. Hopefully for a few days,” Gerrans said. “To have the yellow jersey, it just really changes your life as a cyclist. I’ll have a bit more time to myself now and pass all that extra work on to Daryl,” Gerrans added. “I don’t count it as losing the jersey. I count it as passing it onto a mate. It was the plan before the stage and we were able to execute it perfectly.” Impey’s father was a pro cyclist in South Africa, said his wife, Alexandra. She said Impey also used to train with Burry Stander, a twotime Olympic mountain biker killed Jan. 3 when he was hit by a minibus taxi while biking with his wife. Stander was the second leading cyclist to be killed in a road ac-

cident in South Africa in recent years. Carla Swart died in January 2011 when she was hit by a truck while training. Describing roads around Johannesburg as “pretty scary,” Alexandra Impey said: “I feel more relaxed when he’s training here in Europe.” Greipel’s sprint-finish victory capped a hard day of riding for the pack, across 176.5-kilometres (110 miles) of flat, sun-kissed terrain from Aix-en-Provence. Anxious that the region’s famous wind, the mistral, might blow hard and split up the race, teams cranked up the pace, reeling in a breakaway rider and motoring at high speed to make sure they wouldn’t get left behind. This in heat that turned tarmac sticky, with temperatures in the thirties (above 90 Fahrenheit). Bottles flew from the peloton as riders emptied them and tossed them aside. “We rode strong all day in poor conditions,” said Mark Cavendish, who won Stage 5 in a sprint but crashed late in Stage 6 and expended too much energy getting back into the race to challenge Greipel in the final dash.

THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — Colin Miller has a roster of youngsters for Canada’s Gold Cup campaign, but that doesn’t mean he’ll toss them straight into the fire. Eight players will make their international senior debut in CONCACAF’s biennial championship tournament, but Canada’s interim head coach said he’ll “drip feed” the newcomers into Sunday’s opening game against Martinique. “We have to see how they’re doing, how they’re responding to the senior guys in training,” Miller said on a conference call Thursday. “There’s an assessment being made every day in training to see how the young guys are handling this environment. They’re coming from their own club environment where they’re fairly comfortable, now they’re coming into a national team environment where it’s a step higher obviously. “So to throw a full team of young lads into a fixture against Martinique wouldn’t be the right way to do it.” Miller selected his 23-man squad with an aim to give the young players crucial senior international experience ahead of 2016 Olympic and 2018 World Cup qualifying. The eight rookies — Keven Aleman, Samuel Piette, Kyle Bekker, Doneil Henry, Jonathan Osorio, Pedro Pacheco, Russell Teibert, and Simon Thomas — have shown well in training since camp opened last week in Oxnard, Calif. “But as you can imagine, it’s another step when you actually throw them into the fixture,” said Miller, who won’t be Canada’s coach much longer — veteran Spanish manager Benito Floro is expected to be named head coach on Friday. Miller said Osorio has “looked sharp in training,” and said he’s “a fan” of Bekker. Aleman, Miller said, “is a very talented young man but certainly has to learn the role defensively and what more is involved. With the ball at his feet is a very very talented young man.” Miller was able to give every player at least 45 minutes on the field in a 1-1 draw Tuesday in a warm-up match versus the Ventura County Fusion of

the USL Premier Development League. “We managed to get through that with the guys and each goalkeeper played 30 minutes and that’s all the exercise was for,” Miller said. “If anyone reads into the result of that game too much, I think it would be very foolish.” The younger players are anchored by national team mainstays such as Julian de Guzman and Simeon Jackson. Will Johnson — who’s having a strong season for the Portland Timbers, twice winning MLS goal of the week honours — will captain the Canadian team, and the armband has been a long time coming, Miller said. “I’ve certainly admired Will for some time now,” Miller said. “From Day 1 of my involvement with the national team, Will would have been my captain. But this has actually been my first trip that I’ve actually had the chance to work with Will. He brings a winning mentality, he brings a fierce competitiveness to his play, he’s a leader within the group, he’s a natural leader, and he’s also the captain of his MLS side now. To be a Canadian captain the US is quite an accomplishment I think, so it’s a real testament to the qualities that Will brings. “But he’s a leader, he’s setting standards, and I’m really excited about the fact Will has been given this opportunity. When I spoke to him about it, he was absolutely over the moon and very proud as you would imagine.” Martinique is considered Canada’s easiest opponent of its group. The Caribbean country is unranked by FIFA, while Mexico is No. 20 in the world and No. 1 in CONCACAF, and Panama is fourth in CONCACAF, and ranked 51st by FIFA. Canada, meanwhile, is 10th in CONCACAF, and 88th in FIFA rankings. Miller said it crucial, however, that his Canadian side doesn’t look past Martinique at the game in Pasadena, Calif. “We’ve hammered it home every day here, our total focus to this point has been on Martinique and that will remain so until after the game and then our focus will be on Mexico,” Miller said. “We’ve said it every day and I’ll repeat it again this morning when we get to training, that our focus is totally on Martinique.” The coach wasn’t revealing who he’ll have in net Sunday, saying all three ’keepers — Lars Hirschfeld, Milan Borjan, and Thomas — have looked good in practice.

Purple martin pursuit GOLF EVENT HELPS CNIB The fifth Annual Walter Gretzky Mentorship Gala and Golf Classic raised a record $88,000 in Central Alberta last month. Money raised will go the Central Alberta Canadian National Institute for the Blind office. More than 400 guests enjoyed presentations from Canadian County Music Association male vocalist of the year Gord Bamford, 2006 Olympic gold medalist skeleton racer Duff Gibson, and Merico Tesolin, an advocate for the deaf and blind community, at Sheraton Red Deer on June 18. The Golf Classic was held on June 19 at River Bend Golf Course and featured a record 152 golfers. In its fiveyear history, the gala and golf tournament have raised more than $300,000 for those living with vision loss and their caregivers.

Jason Fraser of York University inspects a purple martin at Ellis Bird Farm. Fraser is studying the migratory patterns of the birds in an effort to learn more about their declining populations. The four that returned to Ellis Bird Farm were slated to get new geolocators so they can be tracked again to compare the migration patterns year-to-year. And more birds will have the geolocators attached to them with 28 from Ellis Bird Farm and 66 for the region, mostly from the Camrose area. Fraser also meticulously inspected the birds, measuring wingspan, claw length, taking a blood sample, feather sample and recording all the data for his scientific research.

ALS FUNDS Red Deer walkers raised $101,000 to support those living with the degenerative ALS disease at the 10th annual Walk for ALS held on June 22. Approximately 200 participants raised funds and took part in the five-km walk, which went ahead after a location change from Great Chief Park to Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School due to flooding. The Red Deer event is one of 12 across Alberta to take place during the summer. The walks raise funds for support services for those affected by ALS and for research into the causes, treatments and a cure for the disease.

RESEARCHER SAYS RETURN RATES TO ELLIS BIRD FARM ARE BELOW NORMAL, AND EXTREME WEATHER ACROSS THE CONTINENT MAY BE TO BLAME BY MURRAY CRAWFORD ADVOCATE STAFF After a 21,000-km journey, four purple martins returned to Ellis Bird Farm a year after they had been given geolocators. Last summer, Kevin Fraser, who studies migratory bird behaviour at York University in Toronto, put the tracking devices on about 20 purple martins in the region, the northern most part of the birds’ range. He said it was the first time they had ever studied the migratory patterns of the swallow. “We knew they probably spent their winters somewhere in South America but we didn’t really know specifically where,” said Fraser. “If you want to conserve a population of birds, you need to know where they are.” Fraser was at the Ellis Bird Farm, located east of Blackfalds, Wednesday and Thursday as part of his scientific research. The birds wintered in Brazil but had important stopovers, Texas being one, to refuel and fatten up for the next leg of their journey. On an average day, the purple martins travelled 600 km. “One bird we tracked last year was away from this breeding site for 263 days of the

year,” said Fraser. “Most of it is not here, but we see the declines here. “To understand what is going on that is contributing to the declines at the breeding site, we need to see what is going on during the rest of the year.” Of those 20 that were tagged in the region, five returned this year, four of whom came back to Ellis Bird Farm. Fraser said this was a lower than normal return rate, which he said could be attributable to the variable weather this spring. “Usually we get 40 to 50 per cent back,” said Fraser. “We think the low return rates we’re seeing everywhere have something to do with the really bad conditions. Right across North America, there were cold snaps and stormy weather.” The hope with this year’s tracking is for a greater return of the martins. More birds will have the geolocators attached to them with 28 from Ellis Bird Farm and 66 for the region, mostly from the Camrose area. The four that returned to Ellis Bird Farm were slated to get new geolocators so they can be tracked again to compare the migration patterns year-to-year. Fraser has a particular interest in the northern limit of the purple martin’s range because that is where the population de-

clines are most prevalent. He said there is a theory that the birds generally do not adjust their migration schedules and sometimes arrive in areas after peak food periods. In order to put the geolocators on the birds and properly assess them, they were caught by setting a trap on a multi-birdhouse. Once inside, the door they chose to go in was blocked off and they were carefully put inside a cloth bag. Fraser would then remove them from the bag and meticulously inspect them, measuring wingspan, claw length, taking a blood sample, feather sample and recording all the data for his scientific research. Ellis Bird Farm manager and biologist Myrna Pearman said this research could easily be the most exciting thing to happen at the facility. “People are very touched when they learn about the amazing migration of these birds,” said Pearman, who has been a biologist and an interpreter for about 30 years. “I think there are two things people are the most interested in — seeing baby birds in a nest and learning about these purple martins and their migration. “This is science in the making.”

Second mayoral candidate joins race BY MURRAY CRAWFORD ADVOCATE STAFF


After nine years sitting on council, Doug Gill is taking a shot at the big chair. The three-term Ponoka town councillor said he thinks he can provide the leadership needed in the Central Alberta community. Gill, 67, retired from his career as a teacher and administrator with the Wolf Creek School Division in 2001 and was first elected in 2004. During those nine years on council, he said he learned a lot about what it takes to run a town. “I learned the importance of trying to engage the people,” said Gill, adding other important qualities in a councillor or may-

or are to stay optimistic, proper budgeting and reducing the reliance on grant money. “That’s drying up.” Gill is the second candidate to announce intentions to run for mayor. Fellow Coun. Rick Bonnett announced his candidacy in May. The deadline to file is on Sept. 15. Gill said he announced now in order to get his name out and so anyone else considering running knows what they are up against. Current Ponoka Mayor Larry Henkleman won the chair by acclamation the past two elections, in 2007 and 2010. The last time Ponoka had a race for mayor was in 2004. Henkleman has not announced his deci-

sion for the coming municipal elections. “When you get in by acclamation, it tells you one of three things,” said Gill. “You’re doing a good job, nobody wants it or they could care less.” Gill said he thinks Ponoka could be one of the most beautiful, positive communities in Central Alberta. “We need to change the way we think about our community,” said Gill. “There are some negatives out there. This is something that will not cost any money, it’s just a coming together of the community.” Downtown revitalization and growth of the community are also important issues for Gill. “I just thought Ponoka deserved a choice,” he said. “I like my chances against anybody that puts their name forward.”

Bike ride shifted to Central Alberta BY MURRAY CRAWFORD ADVOCATE STAFF Floods, road washouts and damaged bridges have forced numerous changes to planned events around Canmore and one 136-km bike ride has moved into Central Alberta. TransRockies Race Series had planned the Gran Fondo Highwood Pass to go from Longview to Stoney Nakoda resort using Hwy 40, but that had to change as a result of the June flooding. Instead, the route will now start

at Cline River on Hwy 11 and continue east, finishing at Rocky Mountain House. The cyclists will be peddling along the scenic route on July 13 starting at 9 a.m., with the first riders expected to make it to Rocky Mountain House by noon. Jonathan McLeod, TransRockies Race Series marketing manager, said they hosted a Canadian Rockies Helirun last year in the area and wanted to come back. “We just literally fell in love with the area,” said McLeod. “Some of our crew went out for a road ride when

they were out there and just thought it was spectacular.” Although they would normally get six months to plan the logistics of a ride, they only had a few weeks to move the ride into Central Alberta. But they were familiar with the parties they had to talk to at Alberta Transportation and in Rocky Mountain House. And those parties were eager to be a part of it. “It is quite different in that we don’t have a 7,000-foot pass to climb over,” said McLeod. “I would say it’s not as physically challenging as the High-

sell on the street. Hubley pleaded guilty in Red Deer provincial court on June 18 and was sentenced to 15 days in jail. Chance Shane Mitchell, 24, was charged with robbery. Mitchell, who is not in custody, reserved his plea at the court case management office on Tuesday. He is to return on July 9 to enter a plea and set a court date.


BRIEFS Red Deer teen admits to Facebook threats A teenager has admitted he made threats on Facebook to shoot students and staff at a Central Alberta high school. The 16-year-old, who can’t be named due to his age, also pleaded guilty in Red Deer youth court on Thursday to two breaches of probation. A pre-sentence report has been ordered. The teen is to remain under house arrest and in the care of his parents until he is sentenced on Oct. 3. He is scheduled to be tried on several unrelated charges on that day. Red Deer city RCMP were alerted on April 4 to a Facebook post threatening students and faculty at Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School.

Robbery suspects in court One man has been sentenced while another has yet to enter a plea in connection with an armed robbery attempt in Red Deer on April 2. Police were called to a downtown apartment building at about 10 p.m. to break up a fight. Investigators allege that the two were known to each other and that their scrap was drug-related. Steven Gordon Hubley, 29, was charged with double doctoring and possession of a knife for a dangerous purpose.

It’s a net downhill ride. “The important thing for us was to offer an option as opposed to just cancelling.” McLeod said some people use these events as training for other events, big cycling races or Ironman events. About 450 riders are registered and they will spread out very quickly along the shoulder of Hwy 11. “The Gran Fondo format is supposed to be a relaxed, casual group ride,” said McLeod.


Bull Skit program Saturday raises funds for flood-hit arts community in Calgary The Bull Skit comedy troupe is throwing a local comedy benefit on Saturday to help bail out Calgary arts groups who were recently flooded. “The Calgary flood has taken a lot from the community, and the artistic community,” said Jenna Goldade, cofounder of Against the Wall Theatre’s Bull Skit. She noted “our friends at the Improv Depot were inundated with water,” as was the Stride Gallery, which is still assessing damage. Other Calgary arts facilities that were struck by muddy river water include Lunchbox Theatre, Green Fools, the Fringe Festival’s Theatre in a Box, the National Music Centre, the AVALANCHE! Institute of Contemporary Art, and Rocky Mountain Concert band’s rehearsal space, “to name a few,” added Goldade. The benefit performance will be held at the Scott Block in downtown Red Deer. On the bill will be improvisation, poetry, music and more. Some performers are poet Jarrett Viczko, improviser Karen Johnson Diamond and stand-up comedian Trevor Campbell, both from Calgary, Bull Skit’s own Andrew Rocha and Lee Weselak, and country singer/songwriter Amy Lou from Red Deer. Goldade wants to thank owners of the Scott Block for donating space for

Sex re-offender sentenced to jail time BY BRENDA KOSSOWAN ADVOCATE STAFF A Delburne-area man involved in child pornography has been sentenced to almost two years in jail and will spend the rest of his life as a registered sex offender. Charles Lawrence Ross, 31, pleaded guilty in Red Deer provincial court on Thursday to making child pornography and breaching a probation order banning him from using the Internet. Calgary-based Crown prosecutor Jennifer Rees, a technological and Internet crime specialist, said Ross was arrested on March 18 by police following complaints that he had been sending child pornography through the chat system on an electronic game console. The chats were reported to the United Statesbased National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, which then

alerted Canadian authorities, said Rees. Defence counsel Will Willms said his client has co-operated with authorities as much as possible, including pointing them to the machine he had been using when they searched his home. Willms said his client hopes to get the help he needs through a provincial jail sentence followed by a period of probation. Willms also represented Ross in 2009 when he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 18 months in jail plus three years on probation for possession and distribution of child pornography. Ross was turned down when he tried to get into the Phoenix sex offenders program during his previous jail term, said Willms.

Judge Deck accepted a recommendation from Rees and Willms, ordering that Ross serve two years less one day, minus three months of credit for the time he has served in custody and followed by three years on probation. Deck included a recommendation that Ross be considered for the Phoenix program. The probation order includes conditions prohibiting Ross from using the Internet or any other system that offers chat services. He is also prohibited for 20 years from attending sites where children are likely to be found, including playgrounds, schools and parks, except in the company of another adult. During that period, he may not work or volunteer in any

capacity that puts him in a position of trust with children nor may he communicate with anyone under 16. Ross consented to submitting a DNA sample for the national database to random searches

arrest were withdrawn. They include charges of using a telecommunication device to contact children for a sexual purpose.

TARGET TO OPEN 20 MORE CANADIAN STORES IN JULY MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Target will open an additional 20 stores in Canada this month, adding to the 48 locations already in operation across the country, the big U.S.-based retailer announced Thursday. The new locations, opening between July 16 and July 30, include 11 in Ontario, two each in British Columbia and Alberta, and three in Saskatchewan, the first Target stores in that province. The 20 new stores push Target past the halfway mark for store openings this year, as the retailer has announced plans to open 124 stores across Canada throughout 2013. “After opening stores in Ontario and Western Canada, we’re excited to bring the unique Target brand shopping experience to additional locations in these markets and to welcome our first guests in Saskatchewan,” Target Canada president Tony Fisher said in a release. Besides its 48 stores in Canada, Minneapolisbased Target (NYSE: TGT) has 1,784 locations in the United States.

BANK OF ENGLAND OPTS TO KEEP INTEREST RATES UNCHANGED LONDON — The Bank of England has opted to refrain from pumping more money into the U.K. economy in its first meeting since new Governor Mark Carney’s arrival. The Monetary Policy Committee kept interest rates at 0.5 per cent Thursday and decided against expanding its stimulus program. The bank has so far pumped 375 billion pounds ($579 billion) into Britain’s economy since 2009. Under the program, the Bank of England buys bonds from financial institutions with newly created money. The hope is the extra money will boost lending, helping economic growth. Analysts like Erik Nielsen, the UniCredit global chief economist, have warned that even if Carney wanted to hit the “monetary accelerator”, he would still need to persuade fellow MPC members. — The Canadian Press

Cellphone service cheaper CANADA IN MIDDLE OF PACK WHEN IT COMES TO PRICES FOR MOBILE PHONE PLANS: STUDY BY THE CANADIAN PRESS MONTREAL — Prices for cellphone services — including voice and data — have decreased since last year, putting Canada in the middle of the pack internationally, a new study says. A typical package of mobile phone services — including voice, text, call display and voice mail features — has fallen by about 13 per cent compared with 2012, said the study, commissioned by Industry Canada and the CRTC. Prices for smartphone plans that include data fell about five per cent compared with 2012, said the study, done by Wall Communications Inc. “We’re not the worst, we’re not the best,”

Gerry Wall, president of Wall Communications, said Thursday. “Overall, I would say we’re right in the middle.” Prices were also tracked in the United States, United Kingdom, France, Australia and Japan. For a plan including 450 incoming and outgoing minutes, voice mail and call display and 300 text messages per month, the cost was $44.86 in Canada. A similar plan in the U.S. cost $76.14 and $38.85 in Britain after adjusting for currency and the relative purchasing power of the Canadian dollar. A plan including 1,200 incoming and outgoing minutes, 300 text messages and one gigabyte of data usage per month was $93.59 in Canada, $145.79 in the U.S. and $63.52 in Britain after currency adjustments.

The study Thursday also found that the new wireless players like Wind Mobile, Mobilicity and Public Mobile have helped bring down prices since they launched in the marketplace in recent years. “Further, the monthly data allowances offered by the new wireless entrants, on average, exceed those of the incumbents,” the study said, referring to large telecom companies such as Rogers, Bell and Telus. Prices for cellphone services are a hot button issue for Canadians. “It becomes an emotional thing,” Wall said. “Any time you start spending a lot of money on anything in the household, it catches your attention and it kind of bugs you.”

Consumer advocate rejects bumping plan COMPENSATION PROPOSAL ’UNREASONABLE’ BY THE CANADIAN PRESS MONTREAL — Air Canada’s proposed compensation for passengers bumped off domestic flights is “unreasonable,” says a consumer advocate who successfully convinced the Canadian Transportation Agency that passengers are entitled to higher payments. Gabor Lukacs urged the agency to instead adopt U.S. rules or the proposal he submitted. “Air Canada’s proposed compensation scheme fails to strike a balance between the rights of passengers and Air Canada’s statutory, commercial, and operational obligations,” he wrote in a 47-page submission on Thursday. The former University of Manitoba math professor has suggested passengers should be compensated between $200 and $800 depending on the length of delay. Delays of less than two hours would prompt the minimum compensation. Bumped passengers who are delayed two to six hours would get $400 and the maximum would be given for longer delays. In the United States, twice the airfare up to a maximum of US$650 is paid for delays of one to two hours and four times the fare to a maximum of US$1,300 is paid for delays exceeding two hours. Air Canada (TSX:AC.B) proposed last week that passengers should be entitled to between $100 and $800 in compensation depending on their airfare and length of delay. The airline proposed that passengers who are delayed from domestic flights for six hours or more be eligible for 200 per cent of the one-way airfare — up to a maximum of $800. It also proposed that those delayed between one to six hours be eligible for 100 per cent of the one-way airfare — up to a maximum of $400 — while it would pay between $100 to $150 to those delayed for less than an hour. The compensation would be in cash or in some cases higher amounts in travel vouchers.

A construction vehicle is parked alongside a closed road in Gasoline Alley. Consumers looking to Scott’s Parables and Ricky’s All Day Grill are forced to take detours to get to their desired location.

Gasoline Alley retailers feeling construction pain BY HARLEY RICHARDS ADVOCATE BUSINESS EDITOR Short-term pain for long-term gain? Businesses along Leva Avenue have certainly been enduring the former since expansion of the busy Gasoline Alley roadway began in May. But opinions are mixed as to whether the latter will follow. In an effort to address traffic congestion on Leva Avenue, and the frequent gridlock where it meets Lantern Street, Red Deer County is expanding the north-south avenue to four lanes from three, and developing a roundabout at the Leva-Lantern intersection. Two months into the $6.4-million project, the resulting barricades and detours have frustrated countless motorists and deterred some shoppers from visiting businesses there. “It’s been brutal,” said Jim Pearson, manager of Scott’s Parable Christian Store. “Our sales were down 11 per cent in May and they’re down almost 17 per cent in June.” Scott’s customer count was down by 1,000 in May and 1,600 in June, he added. “That’s huge.” Chris Chi, who is a partner in the PetroCanada service station and convenience store nearby, tells a similar story. He estimates that sales fell 10 per cent in May and 25 per cent last month. In 2012, the July-to-August period was his businesses’ most profitable, said Chi.

That’s unlikely to be the case again this year. Customer traffic is also down at Ricky’s All Day Grill, next door to Scott’s Parable Christian Store. “It’s definitely affected us,” said Jennah Morrill, the restaurant’s front-end manager. Business was slow in May and June, she said, describing how many people didn’t even know Ricky’s was still operating. “We’re trying to get all of our staff to park over on (the east) side so that people on the highway can tell that we’re open.” Pearson has posted a notice on Scott’s highway-facing side advising passers-by of the alternate route to get there. But many motorists are unwilling to travel that circuitous route, with seniors particularly adverse to the change. Pearson fears the disruption will deter attendees at Canada’s Gospel Music Celebration in Red Deer July 11 to 13 from coming to his store. “Our traffic usually goes up considerably, because there’s an extra 3,000 to 4,000 people in town.” Steve Banack, vice-president with ALTerra Engineering, said a mid-September completion date is targeted, but work is currently ahead of schedule. He said the priority is to get traffic flowing, with cosmetic elements like landscaping and lighting to follow.

Pakistan, IMF reach initial agreement on $5.3 billion bailout BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Pakistan took a major step toward averting an economic crisis Thursday, reaching an initial deal with the International Monetary Fund on a bailout of at least $5.3 billion to help shore up the country’s rapidly diminishing foreign reserves. The announcement should help calm fears of financial instability in Pakistan, a nuclear-armed nation of 180 million people that is also grappling with rampant violence by Islamic militants. But the deal mandates economic reforms that may be unpopular with Pakistanis. Pakistan is a vital ally of the United States, the most powerful member of the IMF, which relies on Islamabad’s help to fight Taliban and al-Qaida militants and negotiate peace in neighbouring Afghanistan. Analysts predicted U.S. pressure would be key to sealing a deal. The agreement comes less than six years

after Pakistan’s last IMF bailout, and the driving need for the money this time was to repay the institution nearly $5 billion that Islamabad still owes. Pakistan’s previous government failed to implement many of the requirements of the last loan, including reducing the deficit and improving tax collection, and ended the program early. That left the new government, which took over at the beginning of June, with the difficult task of convincing the IMF that this time would be different. The IMF mission director in Pakistan, Jeffrey Franks, acknowledged Islamabad’s checkered history, but said the institution would not punish the country for the failure of its predecessors. “It is true that some previous programs have not been completely successful,” said Franks at a joint news conference with Pakistani Finance Minister Muhammad Ishaq Dar in Islamabad. “But the IMF is in the job of helping countries when they have difficult situations and need help, and we’re not going to turn a country down

because previous governments did not do what they had promised to do.” The $5.3 billion loan will be disbursed over a three-year period and will have an interest rate of roughly three per cent, said Franks. It will be repaid over 10 years after an initial grace period of four years, he said. The deal has been approved by the Pakistani government and IMF staffers in the country, but it still needs to be approved by IMF officials in Washington and the institution’s executive board. Pakistan would like the loan to be increased to $7.3 billion, but that is still under discussion, as is the precise timing of the disbursements. The deal will be put before the IMF board in early September, assuming Pakistan first commits to key reforms designed to increase growth and improve financial stability, said Franks. Those include reforms needed to bring down the deficit, reduce pervasive electricity shortages and increase the country’s woeful tax collection.

MARKETS CLOSE TORONTO — The Toronto stock market made small gains on Thursday as political turmoil in Egypt found some resolution and Wall Street was closed for Independence Day. The S&P/TSX composite index was ahead 20.98 points at 12,166.66. The Canadian dollar was down 0.1 of a cent to 95.05 cents US. U.S. markets were closed for the holiday, which put most attention on developments overseas. In Egypt, the country’s first democratically elected president, Mohammed Morsi, has been removed from office by the armed forces. While Egypt is not an oil producer but its control of the Suez canal — one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes, which links the Mediterranean with the Red Sea — gives it a crucial role in maintaining global energy supplies.

Investors around the world were keeping a close watch on the price of oil. Crude futures were lower in late-afternoon electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The regular trading session for the commodity will resume after the U.S. holiday. Meanwhile, European Central Bank president Mario Draghi has underlined the bank’s determination to stick with stimulus for the struggling eurozone, saying the bank will keep its benchmark interest rate the same or lower “for an extended period of time.” The Bank of England held its first monetary policy meeting under new governor Mark Carney, saying that it views inflation pressures as temporary. That suggests it will keep its policies loose for the foreseeable future. But not all was calm in Europe as Portugal’s governing coalition continued to look shaky, a situation that earlier this week raised the spectre of Europe’s debt crisis returning to a boil.

“Europe was sort of on the backburner for some time,” said Ian Nakamoto, director of research at MacDougall, MacDougall and MacTier. “All of what’s happening in Portugal brings it to the forefront, and... there’s a sense it’s simmering there and maybe it’s going to come up and hit us again.” On the TSX, the gold sector was slightly lower as Barrick Gold (TSX:ABX) fell 20 cents to $15.31. August gold bullion also weakened in electronic trading on the Nymex. Goldcorp Inc. (TSX:G) has pulled its employees out of the Elenore project in the James Bay region of Quebec as a massive forest fire rages on. The company said the fire was about 100 kilometres away and advancing towards the mine site with the prevailing winds. Shares of the company fell 21 cents to $25.81.

The U.S. government’s employment report is expected to show the economy created 165,000 jobs, following a gain of 175,000 in May. The jobless rate is forecast to dip to 7.5 per cent from 7.6 per cent. Economists believe Statistics Canada will say that the economy cranked out only about 5,000 jobs in June, following a surprisingly strong gain of 95,000 in May, with the unemployment rate remaining unchanged at 7.1 per cent.

European Central Bank leaves key rate at 0.5% RATES TO STAY LOW FOR ’EXTENDED PERIOD’ BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FRANKFURT, Germany — The European Central Bank and the Bank of England on Thursday underlined their determination to keep interest rates low in an attempt to reassure markets unsettled by the possible end of the U.S. Federal Reserve’s bondbuying program. Abandoning a longtime practice of saying it “never precommits” on interest rate decisions, the ECB said it would now keep its benchmark interest rate the same or lower “for an extended period of time.” The statement followed a meeting of the bank’s rate council which left the refinancing rate for the 17 European Union countries that use the euro unchanged at 0.5 per cent. Draghi said the decision followed “an extensive discussion” of a potential rate cut. Instead of a cut, the bank offered what is called “forward guidance”. The practice — already used by the U.S. Federal Reserve — is designed to give markets clarity about central bank’s future course of action in order to influence and reassure markets. The Bank of England did something similar at its monthly meeting Thursday. Under new governor



Deen cuts ties with agent after racial slur admission devastates empire SAVANNAH, Ga. — Paula Deen announced Thursday that she has cut business ties with the agent who helped make her a Food Network star and launch a media and merchandising empire that has largely crumbled in the wake of her admission that she used racial slurs in the past. Deen had worked with New York agent Barry Weiner for more than a decade. She has said he was instrumental in getting her show “Paula’s Home


SERVICE: Wireless code The CRTC recently announced plans for a new wireless code earlier this year to that will allow consumers to cancel their wireless contracts after two years without penalty. The code also sets provisions to limit extra data and international data roaming charges to avoid huge, surprise bills. The study Thursday also looked at prices for such services as Internet, landline telephones and bundled telecom services. Compared with 2012, overall Canada had more price increases and didn’t fare as well internationally, Wall said. But rates for typical broadband Internet service went down about six per cent in 2013, but not rates for higher speeds. Prices for monthly higher-speed broadband Internet services were higher in Canada than those in all of the surveyed countries at $65.18 and $82.88 — with the exception of the United States with prices at $99.10 and $123.27 after adjusting for currency and the relative purchasing power of the Canadian dollar, the study said. Wall said prices for local and longdistance calls were up modestly and, again, Canada falls in the middle of the pack on pricing. Average Canadian prices for bundled telecom services, which can include landline, Internet, TV, and wireless, were up about five period this year.

Mark Carney, the bank issued a statement saying that expectation of a rate rise “was not warranted”. Markets reacted dramatically to the two banks’ statements. In London, the FTSE 100 index of leading shares was up 3 per cent, while Germany’s DAX stock index was up 2.16 per cent. Both the euro and pound fell on the two banks’ actions. The goal of the ECB and the Bank of England was to keep bond market interest rates from rising and hurting economic growth through higher borrowing costs. Market rates have crept up since the Fed signalled last month it could begin phasing out its bond-buying program this year. The Fed program — known as quantitative easing — had been sending fresh money into financial markets, driving bond prices up and keeping borrowing costs down. Word the Fed might scale back soon sent the process into reverse. Analyst Christian Schulz called the ECB guidance a “mini-revolution” because the central bank abandoned its longstanding catchphrase that it “never precommits” on its policies. “This is a weak form of forward guidance. But it is guidance nonetheless,” Schulz wrote in a note to investors. At his news conference following the ECB meet-

ing, Draghi rebuffed attempts by journalists to pin him down about what an extended period meant just saying “an extended period of time is an extended period of time.” He also did not specify any concrete targets for unemployment or growth, as the U.S. Fed has done. The U.S. central bank has said its rates will remain near zero until U.S. unemployment falls to 6.5 per cent. Still, Draghi was clearly at pains to show the bank as leaning toward doing more to help stimulate the eurozone. The ECB presidents said the current record low benchmark rate of 0.5 per cent “is not the lower bound.” He added that the bank’s statements were intended “to inject a downward bias in interest rates for the foreseeable future.” The ECB added that rates would remain low so long as three conditions continued to exist: no threat of inflation, weak economic output, and anemic lending by banks. But no figures were mentioned. The eurozone economy has struggled due to the government debt crisis which has forced countries to cut back on spending and raise taxes to try to reduce levels of debt. Economic output shrank 0.2 per cent in the first quarter, the sixth quarterly decline in a row.

Cooking” on the Food Network in 2002. She gave no reason for her parting with Weiner. “Paula Deen has separated from her agent,” Deen’s spokeswoman, Elana Weiss, said in an email Thursday. “She and her family thank him for the tireless effort and dedication over the many years.” Deen’s breakup with one of her key partners comes after a turbulent two weeks that have left the celebrity chef’s network of business deals in shambles. It all started within days of the public disclosure of a legal deposition in which Deen admitted under oath to having used the N-word.

severe floods in southern Alberta. The Calgary-based airline said its load factor decreased for the fifth consecutive month, falling 2.2 percentage points to 76.8 per cent as capacity increased 11.3 per cent, outpacing traffic gains. WestJet (TSX:WJA) says it flew nearly nine million passengers in the first half of the year, a 5.7 per cent increase from the prior year and achieved a load factor of 81.9 per cent. “We continue to be pleased with our strong yearover-year traffic growth, notwithstanding reservation cancellations and weakness in advance bookings in southern Alberta since the June 21 flood,” stated CEO Gregg Saretsky. The airline launched its WestJet Encore regional service in the month following the delivery of its first two new Bombardier Q400 turboprop aircraft. Walter Spracklin of RBC Capital Markets said increased traffic in the month was below his estimate for 10 per cent growth while capacity additions were higher than expected.

WestJet traffic increases in June but load factor falls on higher capacity WestJet says its passenger traffic increased more than eight per cent in June, despite some cancellations and weakness in advance bookings following

“There’s a fair amount of price competition amongst providers. In terms of the prices that we’ve seen, it’s very middle of the pack internationally for us,” Wall said. The study surveyed telecom providers including Rogers (TSX:RCI.B), Telus (TSX:T), Bell (TSX:BCE), Videotron (TSX:QBR.B), Eastlink, SaskTel, Wind Mobile, Mobilicity, Shaw (TSX:SJR.B) and Primus. It has been done annually since 2008.

BUMPING: Payout outdated Air Canada successfully argued that it can overbook and deny compensation in limited cases when it has to switch to smaller aircraft for operational and security reasons that are beyond its control. However, the agency ruled Air Canada’s 12-year-old bumping payout rate of $100 cash or a $200 travel voucher is outdated and doesn’t reflect the current price of airline tickets, accommodation and other incidental expenses. It asked the airline to submit reasons why it shouldn’t impose Lukacs’s proposal or the scheme used in the U.S. Air Canada could have appealed to Federal Court, but elected not to do so. Lukacs said the airline’s proposal provides lower cash compensation in most cases than the two alternatives. It would calculate compensation excluding all taxes and airport fees and considers delays between one and six hours causing the same inconvenience and damage. Lukacs concedes that paying compensation will cost Air Canada, but said the impact isn’t significant be-

cause the airline says only 0.09 per cent of domestic passengers are affected by denied boarding. “Overselling flights, however, is not an act of God that is outside of Air Canada’s control, but rather part of Air Canada’s business model, and as such, Air Canada has full control over it,” he wrote, adding that the airline can decrease its exposure by decreasing oversell rates. Its domestic rival WestJet Airlines (TSX:WJA) doesn’t overbook its flights. Lukacs said compensation should be paid in cash because many passengers may not be aware that vouchers have many restrictions. If the agency allows the airline to pay vouchers, he said their value should be higher than Air Canada has proposed.

CONSTRUCTION: ‘At the end of the day, it has to be done’ Tyler Harke, communication manager with Red Deer County, said the situation for local businesses has already improved, with much of the widening of Leva Avenue now complete.


“At the end of the day, it has to be done,” shrugged Pearson. “You’ve got to build the roads.” Ultimately, the Hwy 2 interchange that feeds onto Gasoline Alley is slated for reconstruction. That will include the addition of a “collector-distribution road system,” which will allow southbound highway traffic to exit the freeway and access the north end of Leva Avenue. Last year, Alberta Transportation bumped the project from its threeyear road construction program. But that could change, said Nancy Beasley Hosker, a spokesperson with the department. “Right now, all of the engineering and land acquisition is complete. It’s just a matter of approval and funding, depending on priorities.” When the highway project does proceed, Chi and Morrill are optimistic it will help their businesses, because they’re at the north end of Gasoline Alley. “We’ll be the first restaurant when you come onto Gasoline Alley,” said Morrill. Pearson is less optimistic. He fears drivers who miss the first southbound exit to Gasoline Alley will be reluctant to take the next one at McKenzie Road, and double back. “Nobody likes to go backwards.”

Gaultier pounces back to top form HAUTE COUTURE FALL-WINTER COLLECTION BY THOMAS ADAMSON BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PARIS — “It’s all cinema, it’s all from film,” said Jean Paul Gaultier, summing up haute couture. Paris’s enfant terrible seemed to have a point, speaking on the last day of fallwinter shows that have seen spectators transported from apocalyptic opera houses to the circus and flung across the four corners of the globe. Gaultier’s feline-infused couture collection — Wednesday’s highlight — took for inspiration Italian filmmaker Federico Fellini and The Pink Panther. The references merged with theatrical panache to produce once of his best shows in seasons. But the cinema continued throughout Wednesday. In Valentino’s encyclopedic show, continents and eras were merged and had Baz Luhrmann in delight. “Haute couture, like cinema, is unreal. It’s theatre — a romantic aspiration that’s more beautiful, more extraordinary than reality,” said the burlesque Moulin Rouge director who sat on the coveted front row.

JEAN PAUL GAULTIER With a delicious purr, Gaultier pounced back into top form with a feisty couture collection, proving that despite a couple of off seasons, he still has a lot of tricks up his embroidered sleeve. This fall-winter’s muse was the female panther, which inspired a slew of fresh ideas, including plenty of new ways to wear leopard and how to dress in feathers to look like a cat. If it sounds eccentric, it was. Leopard print featured cheekily on tights below one stylish all-black crepe dress, and there were several incredible couture coats. At first glance they looked like fur but were made entirely of feathers, speckled like a big cat pelt and with white feathers at the edges to resemble skin. Gaultier, ever the showman, ensured the wackiness

infused the show’s presentation as well. Forty-three looks filed by to the infectious theme of “The Pink Panther,” showcased on models who clawed as they walked. Guests looked on from stalls divided into lionesses, panthers, lynx and leopards. Sometimes they applauded, sometimes they simply laughed. But aside from all the fun, there was some serious couture at work here. Inspired by clown costumes, Gaultier showed flair with a new silhouette produced by dramatic 1980s-style ice-cream cone-shaped chaps. It was fresh and engaging, and it seemed to say one of the big cats of Paris is back.

VALENTINO As guests arrived at Valentino’s show, they glanced inquisitively at the zebra heads and gold-rimmed fisheye mirrors mounted on the walls of the “Hotel de Rothschild,” transforming the 19th century mansion into a vintage-style cabinet of curiosities. “Enchanting, encyclopedic couture,” the program notes promised revelers. When the first tight gown swept by with the image of orange rhinoceros on 3-D bed of myriad earth brown lacing, apparently inspired by a painting of Elizabeth I, it was clear the show would follow through on the promise. Designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, in the process, seemed to have pulled off their most eccentric and imaginative show to date. Oriental motifs and arabesque patterns fused with Scottish herringbone tweeds and Renaissance capes were thrown into the creative cauldron. This appeared alongside embroideries of lion’s heads, bees, beetles and dragonflies, often to luxurious effect. That’s not to say all the looks worked. Some were too austere, and on the more elaborate silhouettes the patterning at times came across as busy.

VIKTOR & ROLF Returning to the couture

stage after a 13-year hiatus, Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren used a raked Japanese garden as the vehicle for their shadowy, minimalist creations. In an unusual presentation, the Dutch design duo meditated back-to-back in the lotus position before the collection showcased the 20 black, architectural creations. (Twenty represented the amount of years they’ve been in the fashion industry.) Sluggishly from the backstage darkness, the dresses appeared in stiff technical silk with Oriental, almost organic silhouettes. They cut some beautiful and contemplative shapes. The models then dropped to the floor one by one and the designers moulded the dresses with their hands into various abstract forms. It produced a striking visual landscape: An interlocking mound of black with model piled upon model in several heaps of black fabric.

ELIE SAAB Lebanese designer Elie Saab unabashedly celebrated the glitz of the red carpet in a couture show which used the exact colour the A-listers tread. The first series of sweeping embroidered silk gowns brushed the red-colored catwalk as they filed by, merging with it in a “trompe l’oeil” effect. It could be said that Saab - famed for dressing royalty and celebrities for the red carpet - is finally embracing the colour that made his name. Pearlized hues followed, with delicately cinched waists and glittering with thousands of embroidered sequins - as is the Saab signature. Several looks in rarely used jade green were the highest point in the show, cutting a striking image against the red of the runway. However, a series of gowns in ultramarine were so bold they might be hard for mere mortals to pull off. Perhaps it was a reminder: This show is not for mortals; this is haute couture.

Chanel and Armani evoke old world and new in Paris BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PARIS — “Fashion is the only thing that can travel ... from the old world to the new,” proclaimed Karl Lagerfeld. And on the second day of haute couture shows, Chanel’s showman couturier made his point with aplomb: he delivered the words from the stage of an old, decayed opera house standing next to pop star Rihanna. As ever, the master designer stole the show, with Tuesday’s most impressive couture display. His creations glittered in dramatic contrast with the brokendown theatre, recreated inside Paris’ Grand Palais. Faded grimy curtains, old wooden stalls, and some classic clothing styles mixed alongside futuristic streaks of silver embroideries and cosmiclooking hats. Fashion, it seemed to say, lives in the past and the future. A similar message ran throughout the day of shows, with Italian designer Giorgio Armani delivering a stylish collection that evoked the sensuality of old Hollywood while still remaining modern. Stephane Rolland, too, cited old masters such as Velazquez as muses for a strong show, but pulled off looks with a modern elegance. Haute couture itself dates back over 150 years and is steeped in history. But the hurdle for designers is to keep the looks fresh while also keeping the artisanbased method of making clothes alive and relevant.

CHANEL The setting saw Lagerfeld carry off a dark, expressionist-tinged fall-winter 2013 collection, which began with an image of a futuristic metropolis beamed onto the old, nostalgic theatre wall. When the models appeared, the contrasts continued: the first chic series of A-line skirt suit-styles

were twinned with Grace Jonesstyle space-age hair. Intergalactic square hats that were attached at the back of the head seemed to float like a geometric halo, in a great anachronism. The 67 very wearable looks had some notable features, such as wide, often shiny, belt bands that strapped across at the hip, and mosaic patterns. Instead of boots, Lagerfeld put legs inside “stocking shoes,” attached up the leg with a garter like lingerie. Jackets sometimes had strong, menswear shoulders which contrasted with tight feminine dress sleeves. And skirts were layered upon skirts to produce different directions of movement. One fantastic tweed-style grey coat was constructed with one long piece of material, half of which went down, and the other half hooped back up to create a voluminous silhouette. At the end, a creation perfectly showed Lagerfeld’s expressionist mood. A long, black diaphanous silk dress was streaked with shards of fractured and glimmering silver. Was this musing inspired by the dark landscape of legendary filmmaker Fritz Lang? “You know,” Lagerfeld said. “My whole life is a Fritz Lang moment.”

ARMANI PRIVE Giorgio Armani seemed to strip the body bare in a classic couture collection Tuesday that came with a twist and was entitled simply, “Nude.” The checkered runway in pearly hues of yellow, pink and beige set the mood for the nudetoned musings for fall-winter 2013. The colours recurred on the 52 creations, all of which were constructed with a delicate femininity. The Armani Prive show made its statement in skin-colored fine organzas, lace and tulles, which

exposed much skin. At times, the material seemed to simply melt into the models’ flesh. But the show, for the most part, remained relatively classical, and several creations had the refined look of old-school Hollywood glamor. Loose, pleated pants combined with high shoulders in marabou feathers cut a striking 1930s silhouette along with the models’ short wavy hair. One look that had a soft floppy bow tied on the top of high-waisted trousers could have been worn by Katharine Hepburn.

BOUCHRA JARRAR The museum of sculptor Antoine Bourdelle was a magnificent backdrop for the sculptural creations conjured up by lauded Moroccan-born designer Bouchra Jarrar. Models in ivory, pink and jetblack wandered among Bourdelles’ private collection of bronze and marble figures, creating a visually dramatic scene. Fabric woven tightly round the neck and held with silver clasps, at times, felt as carved as the marble artwork itself. But the stronger work was found in the three-part silk dresses in pink crepe, black georgette and ivory “charmeuse.” They fluttered by like butterflies.

STEPHANE ROLLAND “Austere, but sensuous,” were the words the program notes used to describe Stephane Rolland’s dark and luxuriant couture display, which continued in the elegant footsteps of last season. Deep midnight blue produced a classy silk crepe jumpsuit with a billowing black satin module that evoked the fuzzy brushstrokes of a painter. Indeed, the Spanish royal court’s master painter Diego Velazquez was one of the inspirations behind this collection.

Romeo and Juliet, played by Aaron Casselman and Natascha Schulmeister, rehearse at Red Deer College. The two actors are preparing for a Prime Stock Theatre production of Bard on Bower, which will play in July and also feature Shakespeare’s As You Like It.

Bard on Bower tackles love BY LANA MICHELIN ADVOCATE STAFF

Both are enduring love stories. Whether you get a happy or a sad ending depends on which Bard on Bower production you see this month. Prime Stock Theatre will stage the Shakespearean comedy As You Like It and the tragedy Romeo and Juliet on the outdoor stage at Bower Ponds. (The ill-fated couple from Verona will tread the boards starting from July 18, while the happy couple from the Forest of Arden make their Bard on Bower debut on July 25.) Both plays, which rose to the top in popularity in an audience survey, contain similarities, said artistic director Thomas Usher. He noted both feature amorous partners who are forced to live outside the establishment and overcome obstacles to be together. “Both contain love-sick guys who fall for the girl right away . . . it’s sort of love at first sight.” While trickery is used as a plot device in both plays, it only serves to temporarily separate Rosalind and Orlando, but ultimately dooms Romeo and Juliet. “The two teens get caught up in their own world and can’t see their way through it,” added Usher. As You Like It, which will be transposed to the Algonquin wilds of Ontario and Quebec at the end of the 1930s, is about the clever daughter of an ousted Duke. Rosalind takes off into the forest — which, in this case, is filled with French Canadian lumberjacks and loggers — to seek her exiled father. Once away from the confines of society, she runs into her flame, Orlando, who is also fleeing the city after angering the prevailing ruler.

Although Orlando doesn’t recognize Rosalind, who is disguised as a boy, their verbal parrying begins. Rosalind doubts Orlando’s devotion, said Usher. She thinks his feelings are superficial and fleeting, and starts questioning him about the nature of love. Usher believes this play continues to be relevant because Rosalind spouts some very modern ideas — such as the need to be yourself in a relationship, and to overcome fears of vulnerability by opening up, emotionally, to another person. “The language used is more poetic than we use today, but the ideas are exactly the same,” he said. Rosalind is one of Shakespeare’s greatest heroines, encompassing beauty, wit, humanity and intellect. The Bard gave her a ton of stage time as well as speeches that equal Hamlet’s in length, said Usher, who believes these are great reasons to see As You Like It. Audience members are bound to recognize, for instance, lines delivered by the philosophical exiled nobleman Jaques, who opines, “All the world’s a stage and all the men and women merely players. ...” The eternal tragedy of Romeo and Juliet has unfolded in various settings and time periods as different productions were staged over the centuries. The Prime Stock version will take place in a walled city on a Mexican island, circa 1822, a few years after the end of the Mexican Revolution. Usher believes the Mexico of nearly 200 years ago serves as a good stand-in for Renaissance Italy, since daughters of that period also had little say over who they married and the church dominated culture. Society was also attempting to re-establish stability after years of bloody tumult, which mirrors the feud between the Capulets and Montagues.

He also looks forward to incorporating Mexican Day of the Dead symbolism into the set, and staging exciting sabre duels. Romeo and his 14-year-old girlfriend, as most people know, come from opposite sides of a conflict between two families and pay the ultimate price for their relatives’ blood feud. Usher sees the couple, who is younger and more rash than Rosalind and Orlando, as putting their trust in the wrong gambit. Friar Lawrence “means well” when he suggests Juliet feign her death by taking a sleeping potion so she can be with Romeo. “He wants to heal the rift between the families and see the kids safe, but the timing is wrong,” said Usher. News of Juliet’s so-called demise reaches Romeo before Friar Lawrence can inform him about the ruse, and the results are famously tragic. This summer’s Bard on Bower Shakespearean productions were, themselves, able to skirt calamity since the Red Deer River did not overflow, as it did in 2005, in the area of the outdoor stage. So far, Usher said the rehearsals have been remarkably troublefree, involving actors from across the province. Rosalind will be played by Kayla Nickel of Leduc, Orlando will be depicted by Tyler Reinhold of Calgary, while Romeo and Juliet will be performed, respectively, by Aaron Casselman of Edmonton and Red Deer College graduate Natascha Schulmeister. Romeo and Juliet runs at 7:30 p.m. on July 18, 19, 20, 24, 28, and Aug. 1, and at 2 p.m. on July 27 and Aug. 3. As You Like It will be performed at 7:30 p.m. on July 25, 26, 27, 31, Aug. 2, 3, and 4, and 2 p.m. on July 28. Admission to the plays is free but donations are greatly appreciated.

The Lone Ranger a confusing, masked wimp THE LONE RANGER ISN’T FOR TRADITIONAL FANS OF THE COWBOY LEGEND FROM 80 YEARS OF RADIO, TV AND FILM — BUT WHO IS THIS BIPOLAR OATER REALLY FOR? The Lone Ranger Two stars (out of four) Rated: PG Given his rebel instincts, it may be beside the point to observe that Johnny Depp’s latest genre exercise is neither your father’s The Lone Ranger nor your grandfather’s. Your dear pappy and grandpappy, I trust, would not tolerate a wimpy Lone Ranger or a mugging Tonto. But if this isn’t the Kemosabe and sidekick from some 80 years of radio, TV and movie legend, then who are these masked (and face-painted) men? And who, exactly, was this bipolar oater made for? That’s where we run into trouble, pardners, because PETER I’m not sure exactly what acHOWELL tor/executive producer Depp is up to with his co-conspirators, director/producer Gore Verbinski and producer Jerry Bruckheimer. With this riotous reboot, they seem to be chasing modern moviegoers who prize action over storytelling and who also possess strong bladders — the 149-minute running time makes this almost enough for two movies.


But shouldn’t these Lone Ranger arrangers have decided whether they were doing send-up or serious? And shouldn’t they have called the film Tonto, since it’s really all about him? Almost every moment with Depp as Tonto is played for laughs, beginning with the Buster Keaton/ Keith Richards moves he also brought to his continuing Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. He’s added weird new tics for Tonto, already a troublesome racial caricature. These include his habit of feeding grain to the dead crow on his head and the film’s strange framing technique of having Tonto recount his exploits decades after the fact, while posing in a “Noble Savage” exhibit. Armie Hammer’s conflicted Lone Ranger, in contrast, is like Jimmy Stewart with a lobotomy. He’s all glum and no fun. Without the mask (which he’s reluctant to wear), he’s pacifist eastern lawyer John Reid. He abhors guns and also subscribes to the bizarre notion that the Wild West of 1869 is just itching to be civilized, which it surely ain’t. Not when there are guys running around, like the rapacious railway and empire builder Lathan Cole (Tom Wilkinson) and psychopathic outlaw Butch Cavendish (William Fichtner). Thanks to the plodding pens of co-writers Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio (more Pirates alumni) and Justin Haythe (Revolutionary Road), it takes a good two hours for the movie to finally live up to its title. Reid has to be coaxed and provoked into accepting the destiny that Tonto and a supernatural white stallion named Silver (Hi-yo!) have been forcing upon him: he’s meant to not just wear the mask, but also to heroically ride to The William Tell Overture (goosed by Hans Zimmer). This epiphany arrives just before the second and most elaborate of two action set pieces aboard and atop a speeding train, a blur of inanities that would give a physicist a migraine. It’s a reminder that the picture comes from studio Disney, which doubtless has the plan of making a

theme-park ride out of it one day. This would be a reversal of the course of Pirates of the Caribbean, which began as a Disney ride before it became a blockbuster movie franchise. Disney’s deep pockets, and Verbinski’s eye for detail, also help make The Lone Ranger look like the real deal, from trains to terrain. It was shot in four western U.S. states, including Utah’s picturesque Monument Valley, site of many a John Ford western. The money is all on the screen, with no sign of scrimping despite the studio-ordered trim of $45 million to the original $260-million budget. And for the film’s first hour it looks like it might have been money well spent, especially during the first train action sequence when the Ranger and Tonto are literally chained to each other. Other aspects of The Lone Ranger aren’t like Disney at all. The film has a few dubious aspects that should make parents think twice before taking very young children to see the movie. The outlaw Cavendish doesn’t just shoot people dead; he also cuts out their hearts and eats them. Is this really necessary? The movie also steals shamelessly from others: there’s a killer rabbit nicked from Monty Python and a whorehouse madam (Helena Bonham Carter) with a shotgun in her prosthetic leg, an idea thieved from Robert Rodriguez’s Planet Terror. This kind of stuff worked for Verbinski’s Rango, the bizarre animated western in which Depp voice-starred as a six-shooting lizard, but it’s out of place here. Meanwhile, there’s a potential romance in the person of Ruth Wilson (Anna Karenina). Her character Rebecca catches the Ranger’s eye, but not his full attention. Can this relationship be started, let alone saved? She’s confused about the Ranger, and so are we. Who is this masked wimp, and why should we care? Peter Howell is a syndicated Toronto Star movie critic.

Japan goes gaga for girl groups BY ADVOCATE NEWS SERVICES TOKYO — Ritsuhiko Tajima has about 100 CDs by his favorite artist, Japanese girl-group AKB48, many of them copies of the same disk. The attraction? The CDs often include tickets to events where he can briefly meet his idols. “I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of them,” the 28-year- old nursing assistant said as he waited in line at the group’s Tokyo theater for a monthly sale of limited-edition photos of its members. “They’re pop stars I can come visit.” Fans like Tajima helped consumer music revenue in Japan grow 3 percent last year to $4.3 billion, topping the United States to become the world’s largest market, according to the Recording Industry Association of Japan. Music sales in the country rose for the first time in five years, led by tunes delivered on CDs and other physical media, bucking the trend in developed markets as cheaper downloads gain ground. Physical media made up 82 percent of Japanese music sales last year, versus 37 percent in the U.S., the recording industry group says. Much of Japan’s strength can be attributed to acts like AKB48, which has boosted sales of music in physical formats through innovative marketing such as CDs packaged with tickets to the handshake events and ballots that let fans vote online for their favorite singers. AKB48’s miniskirted members perform in three groups of about 20 each at the 250-seat theater. Formed in 2005, AKB48 is the nation’s top-selling girl band, spawning three sister acts in Japan and two abroad. Sony Corp., which has the second- largest share of Japan’s music market, started a rival group called Nogizaka 46 last year to compete with AKB48, a Sony artist before leaving in 2008 for closely held King Record Co. “Sony Music is betting its future to grow this idol group,” Yasushi Akimoto, the lyricist and producer for Nogizaka 46 — and producer of AKB48 — says on the Nogizaka website. Behind the success of Japan’s girl groups is “a drastic change in the relationship with fans by involving them in the star-making process,” said Hideki Take, a music commentator and disc jockey in Tokyo. After being chosen in amateur auditions, prospective new group members perform in small theaters where fans vote on which members will be featured. “Unlike most stars selected by executives at recording companies, it’s a fan-centered system,” Take said. “The fans feel they are part of the success.” AKB48’s singing and dancing teens are divided

Erika Ikuta, a member of Sony Corp.’s Japanese girl group Nogizaka 46, second right, speaks while fellow members Chiharu Saito, from left, Mai Shiraishi and Yumi Wakatsuki listen during an interview in a studio at the Sony Music Entertainment (Japan) Inc. headquarters in Tokyo, Japan, on Friday, June 28, 2013. Sony, which has the second-largest share of JapanÌs music market, started Nogizaka 46 last year to compete with AKB48, a Sony artist before leaving in 2008 for closely held King Record Co. into three teams — A, K and B — that rotate performances every evening in a theater above a discount store in Tokyo’s Akihabara district. Several times a year, they also hold events where tens of thousands of followers gather at convention halls across Japan for a chance to briefly meet their girl-band idols. Nogizaka 46 is following a similar script, part of an effort by Sony to shore up domestic sales that have fallen in spite of the industry’s strength. Sony says its Japan music sales dropped to 167 billion yen in the year ended March from 174 billion yen a year earlier. That decline helped bump Sony from the lead in Japanese music sales. The company had a 14.4 percent share of the country’s music market last year, 0.5 points behind Avex Group Holdings Inc., according to researcher Oricon Inc. Sony’s troubles in entertainment have prompted investor Daniel Loeb to propose selling as much as 20 percent of its music and movie business. Analysts say the strength of Japan’s music market could be short-lived. Sales of CDs and other physical media to consumers dropped 6 percent in the first five months of 2013 from a year earlier, according to the recording industry association. And the U.S. still accounts for more total music-related revenue when including subscription and streaming service fees and licensing for films and ads. “We may appear to be in better shape than other markets, but music companies here aren’t feeling optimistic,” said Yusuke Nakagawa, president of Asobisystem Co., a talent agency. The challenge for Japan’s music industry is creating similarly intense fan loyalty outside Japan, said Damian Thong, an analyst at Macquarie Group Ltd.

in Tokyo. AKB48’s backers have launched groups in Shanghai (SNH48) and Jakarta (JKT48) to extend the franchise. “AKB48’s innovation was not, in a sense, making new music, but in creating a new kind of immediacy and new kind of connection to the fan base,” Thong said. Nogizaka 46 still has a long way to go before catching AKB48. Sony’s group sold 303,474 CD singles of its biggest hit, Seifuku no Mannequin, or Mannequin in Uniform, in the first half of this year. That was dwarfed by AKB48’s Sayonara Crawl, the No. 1 release, which sold 1.9 million copies. Sony auditioned 38,934 girls to select 33 members for the group. The company is adding 13 new members this year after a second round of auditions in May. Among the members fans can meet is 16-yearold Erika Ikuta, a front-line performer who says she enjoys shaking thousands of hands a day. “At these events, I learn my fans are paying so much more attention to me than I could ever imagine,” Ikuta said before the group’s dance practice at Sony Music’s Japan headquarters. “It gives me a supportive push.” Fans like Yuka Kimura love it, too. Kimura traveled more than an hour from Tokyo for an AKB48 handshake event in Chiba prefecture with 10 tickets, which she got by purchasing 10 identical CDs at 1,000 yen each. Those allowed her to line up multiple times to meet her favorite singers — though each encounter lasts less than five seconds and no photos or autographs are allowed. “It’s worth paying the price,” Kimura said. “Even just for a few seconds, I get to meet my favorite member, and that’s fun.”

NEW YORK — A judge in Geneva has rejected an application from Shakira’s ex-boyfriend seeking rights to one of her bank accounts. Antonio de La Rua claims he should have access to one of Shakira’s accounts because it holds most of the assets from their business partnership. The judge says in documents dated June 17 and obtained by The Associated Press that Shakira is the sole owner of the account. De La Rua has worked as one of Shakira’s business advisers. He says he and the Colombian singer established an oral agreement to work professionally following their romantic split in 2011. The judge says de La Rua doesn’t have enough evidence to prove the two reached a professional agreement.

Visitors to the Niigata Manga Animation Museum in Niigata, Japan, learn about expressions used in manga by playing with characters created by manga creator Fujio Akatsuka. The museum hopes to make manga and anime a more visible part of the city’s cultural identity.

Manga museum brings interactivity to the table BY ADVOCATE NEWS SERVICES NIIGATA, Japan — In the fast-expanding field of manga and anime museums, an institution that opened last month in Niigata is aiming to take its exhibitions to a whole new level through a bonus element: interactivity. The city has produced many renowned manga and anime creators, and the museum hopes to make that a more visible part of the city’s identity, say those behind the founding of the new Niigata Manga Animation Museum. Among the big names that have hailed from Niigata are Shinji Mizushima, Rumiko Takahashi and Mineo Maya. Fujio Akatsuka also lived in the city during his teens. There is a reason why the city has produced so many manga and anime artists, according to Mitsuhisa Ishikawa, president of Production I.G, an anime production company that has a studio in the city and has also helped organize the museum’s exhibitions. “The works of local artists impress me through their enduring visuals,” Ishikawa said. “The sheer number of artists might have something to do with the city’s heavy snowfall in winter.” The result of a joint public-private partnership, the museum was built by the Niigata municipal government at a cost of about 300 million yen (about $3.06 million). Its operation has been commissioned to a private-sector firm. Located near Niigata Station, the museum is adopting an approach to programming that allows visitors to enjoy manga and anime through interactive experience. At an exhibit titled Manga Taiken Table (Interactive manga table), visitors can learn about key expressions used in manga by playing with characters created by Fujio Akatsuka. One example is Iyami from the comedy series Osomatsu-kun, who is best known for his flashiness and signature three large buckteeth. In an exhibit titled Let’s Become Voice Actors, visitors can try their hand at the profession by dubbing their own voices in scenes featuring characters created by anime production company Gainax Co. A special exhibition based on the theme of Space Battleship Yamato 2199 is running until July 31. Fumihiko Sakata, director of the museum, is one of the founders of Niigata Comic Market — better known as Gataket — a major event at which manga and anime fans to sell comic books they made themselves. “I want the museum to be a venue for those who became manga and anime professionals through Gataket to present their works,” Sakata said. Local governments have been constructing mu-

seums and other facilities as part of efforts to help revitalize their regions. Although a great deal of money is spent with the goal of attracting visitors, such projects are often unsuccessful due to a lack of effort, adequate planning and business acumen. There have been concerns that the Niigata museum could follow that pattern. Its future success therefore depends largely on the abilities and efforts of its operators. Aware of the problem, the museum held a symposium to discuss the matter the day after its opening on May 2. One of the panelists at the event, manga critic Tomofusa Kure, said that a project to build a community based on manga and anime could lose momentum if it is too casual. “To run [these museums] successfully on a continuous basis, it’s necessary to refuel them,” said Kadokawa Shoten Publishing Co. President Shinichiro Inoue, another panelist. “You need to hold events that appeal to a younger audience, such as the [current] Spaceship Yamato exhibition, in addition to permanent exhibitions that are historically and culturally significant.” According to the Association of Japanese Animations, there are 62 exhibition venues related to manga and anime. Of them, those built from the late 1990s to the early 2000s tend to focus on the works of individual manga and anime creators. Since the Kyoto International Manga Museum was built in 2006, museums that offer a broader view of manga culture have been on the rise. Among these is the Kitakyushu Manga Museum, which opened in 2012 in Kitakyushu. It highlights the work of manga creators who were born or lived in the city, such as Leiji Matsumoto and Seizo Watase, and also has a large manga archive. Visitors have access to about 50,000 titles, as the museum places an emphasis on opportunities to see, read and draw manga. It also hosts a free manga class on weekends. Some manga museums have even been teaming up to cross-promote individual artists and exhibitions. Last year, the Yokoyama Memorial Manga Museum in Kochi, which preserves the work of Ryuichi Yokoyama, and the Hasegawa Machiko Art Museum in Tokyo, which takes the popular manga Sazae-san as its theme, held a joint exhibition on the two creators. “Today’s [manga and anime] museums must publicize their own institutions and missions through collaborative events with their peers,” said. Eiji Takahashi, vice director general of the Association of Japanese Animations.

Early in the first episode of Ray Donovan, which aired on Showtime this week, the eponymous Hollywood fixer gets a phone call. Donovan, played by Liev Schreiber, listens patiently, issues a few instructions, and then tells the panicking sports star on the other end of the line, “You don’t think you’re the first person I’ve dealt with who woke up in bed with a dead body?” No, Ray DonoTHE HUFFINGTON van, I’m sure you’ve handled more than POST’S MAUREEN your fair share of RYAN PUT IT BEST IN bed bodies. The problem is that, HER RAY DONOVAN as a viewer, I, too, REVIEW, COMPARING have seen it before. THE SHOW TO A I’ve also seen damaged tough guys, ‘FRANKENSTEIN’S demanding wives, MONSTER, selfish parents, messed-up siblings, ASSEMBLED FROM snake-in-the-grass AN ARRAY OF Hollywood lawyers, dumb actors and SHOPWORN PARTS’ deluded agents. And I’m very familiar with your way of introducing a female character and then involving her in a sex scene in a matter of seconds. Prestige cable dramas are starting to seem like an exercise in TV Mad Libs. The Huffington Post’s Maureen Ryan put it best in her Ray Donovan review, comparing the show to a “Frankenstein’s monster, assembled from an array of shopworn parts.” Given that this is a drama about a tough guy from an ethnic, criminally connected East Coast clan who works with actors, singers, executives and industry lawyers, ultimately the show comes off as a less inspired version of The Sopranos with a side of Entourage — with all the veneration of machismo that combination implies. Perhaps it’s because I just read Brett Martin’s Difficult Men: Behind the Scenes of a Creative Revolution, which is about the post-Sopranos “golden age” of television, but of late my antihero fatigue has turned into a full-blown antihero allergy. Difficult Men is an excellent read, and it offers a convincing explanation of why the new premium cable dramas valorized antiheroes. Liberated from the restrictions of network TV — no advertisers to worry about and no chance of being canceled before the full season aired — and keen to display all that freedom, shows like The Sopranos, The Wire and Deadwood emphasized “characters whom, conventional wisdom had once insisted, Americans would never allow into their living rooms: unhappy, morally compromised, complicated, deeply human.” So, sure, that’s where they came from. But I’m ready to yell, “Next!” Ray Donovan isn’t a terrible show — the acting is excellent, Jon Voight gives an amazing performance as an epically selfish man, and the story lines aren’t entirely predictable. It just doesn’t seem to have anything new to say. In an interview with Willa Paskin, the show’s creator, Ann Biderman, seemed refreshingly visceral in her attitude to generating a fictional universe — it seems to boil down to “What interests me?” And her attraction to macho men is apparent. But reviewing Ray Donovan, the Wrap’s Tim Molloy put his finger on something that’s been bugging me for a while. He said, it “seems to think that showing people fighting, cursing and getting it on is enough to make them seem authentic. It isn’t. They also need to seem believable when they’re not in a boxing gym or bedroom.” Television is often formulaic — but good television doesn’t let the formula show. It may be time to find a new model.

Man who drove Williams on final trip dead at 79 BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

and received two more morphine shots along with some vitamin B12, the newspaper reported. Carr told The Tennessean that he spoke to Williams on a couple of occasions after they set off again, and that when they were pulled over by a police officer, Williams was sleeping. At some point in the drive, Carr learned that Williams had died and took him to a hospital. Heart failure was listed as the cause of death.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Charles Carr, who was just a college freshman when he drove country music legend Hank Williams on his final, lonesome journey six decades ago, has died. The director of the Hank Williams Museum in Montgomery, Beth Petty, said Carr, a retired investor, died Monday after a brief illness. He was 79. Carr’s son, Charles Lands Carr, said his father didn’t talk much about being Williams’ driver on that final trip, until late in his life. Williams died at the age of 29 just before or on Jan. 1, 1953. He died during the night in the back of his 1952 blue Cadillac near Bluefield, W.Va., while he and Carr were on their way to a show in Canton, Ohio. According to The Tennessean newspaper, which examined Williams’ death in 2003, the country singer had taken a shot of morphine to ease his back pain on Dec. 30 and was June 17 - July 7, 2013 carrying chloral hydrate, *Cannot be combined with any other offer or promotion.

HOROSCOPE Friday, July 5 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DATE: Eva Green, 33; Francois Arnaud, 28; Edie Falco, 50 THOUGHT OF THE DAY: This is highly charged day in terms of celestial activity. Luckily, we have the Moon visiting Gemini today which offsets some of the ongoing astral heaviness. A beautiful blend with Uranus will bring us some pleasant surprises and chance appearances. We seek emotional independence and adventurous pursuits. The Sun’s position suggests that we have great potential to stand out for our own special qualities. We shine simply by projecting our individuality in a sincere and honest fashion. HAPPY BIRTHDAY: If today is your birthday, unsettledness marks your year ahead. You will be predisposed to running into random events and circumstances that will make your journey a tad more exciting. Look forward to adventurous occurrences to pop out in a pleasing way. A career change will be very welcomed. Stay true to yourself and your potentials will speak from themselves. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Using a bit of caution and patience while running your usual chores could save you many hurdles. Avoid impulsivity to get the best of you today. Don’t rush into anything just because you seek change. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Today you may realize that you may need to hold onto certain items or people in your life just to feel safe and secure. In fact, you long for a level of liberty and independence from certain sentimental attachments. Apply caution of what exactly you


SUN SIGNS are disposing of. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You are good-spirited today. Avoid signing any contracts or making a final deal. Facts are not clearly understood and it is way too easy to omit some significant details. Get your facts straight if you do not want to be deceived. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Use today’s favourable energies to clean up your life. Replace the old way of handling things with new methods. You seek emotional stimulation and a degree of freedom in all your pursuits. Rid yourself of anything stagnant. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): An entire world unveils itself to you when you expose your most hidden talents. There is a certain appeal and charm that you exude today and which makes you quite unique and special. Modesty and self-respect can go a long way today. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t trust everyone that crosses your path today. This doesn’t mean that you should be suspicious of everyone you meet, but a little caution could help you recognize who your honourable alliance is and who is the con artist. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your partner has more than one pleasant revelation

in store for you today. Both of you appear to be running wild into imagination and daydreaming. Try not to escape reality as you may get lost along the way of discovery. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): A golden opportunity may highlight your day today. An unexpected cash flow or a possible solution to reduce your current debt will make you quite enthusiastic about the future. You may also receive credit for an ongoing venture. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Personal relationships bring along their share of fun and joy. You function on a basis of mutual understanding and a degree of freedom. Respecting each other’s personal space is the main ingredient to a successful union. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Your office routine changes its pace into a more interesting one. You seek to escape boredom at any cost and you will do whatever it takes to get it. Expect to move around more frequently today. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): You derive much satisfaction and enjoyment from all your romantic pursuits. Love flourishes beautifully for you. Your need to stand out through your own unique talents is high. You will not have a hard time impressing others. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You certainly don’t lack creativity and inspiration today. You have plenty of interesting ideas which you would like to share with others as well. However, make sure that a loved one is being genuine and sincere with you.

Secret Conversations reveals all sides of Ava Gardner BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Ava Gardner: The Secret Conversations by Peter Evans and Ava Gardner Simon & Schuster “I’m tired of remembering,” actress Ava Gardner laments during one of many sessions with the ghostwriter working on her memoir. “I’m sick of trying to explain myself all the time.” Her spirit may have been unwilling, but Gardner’s motivation was powerful: She needed the money. At 66, with her acting career over and her body suffering from the effects of a debilitating stroke, one of film’s most beautiful women was nearly broke. The star of The Barefoot Contessa (1954) and dozens of other movies (she was nominated for an Oscar for 1953’s Mogambo) hoped that a tell-all book would bring her hundreds of thou-

sands of dollars — or at least enough cash to allow her to remain in her London flat. The project that began in 1988 fell apart after Gardner discovered that her chosen writer, Peter Evans, had once angered Frank Sinatra. Thirty years after their divorce, Sinatra still held sway over Gardner and it’s unlikely she would have remained in the singer’s good graces working with an enemy. Ava Gardner: The Secret Conversations is not the book that either Evans or Gardner had envisioned when they met at her apartment or when she called him at all hours of the night, sleepless and mournful. It’s less the story of Gardner’s life than a memoir by Evans. The author uses his decades-old tapes and notes to recount their shortlived partnership. Echoes of the movie Sunset Boulevard, with its aging and pathetic star, are hard to ignore, except Gardner isn’t delusional or trying to seduce her

writer. She knew all too well how she got where she was. Fans of Hollywood in the 1940s and ’50s will enjoy the randy banter about the men Gardner married. At five-foot-two, Mickey Rooney was the shortest of her mates. Rooney was also the best dancer and an unconscionable cheat. Husband No. 2, composer and bandleader Artie Shaw, gave her a hard time for being a rag-tag North Carolina girl, offered her books to read and gave her the boot after barely a year. Sinatra matched her in jealousy, insecurity, combativeness — and loyalty. She told Evans that Sinatra always telephoned her on Christmas Eve, which was also her birthday. But she never called him, she said, because “he’s a married man, honey.” She was less enchanted with Sinatra’s pal Humphrey Bogart, her Barefoot Contessa co-star, whom she remembered as envious of her star status in their film.

Two other lovers loomed large in her past. Wealthy recluse Howard Hughes wanted to marry her, even though she battered him with an ashtray during one fight, and he dislocated her jaw during another. Actor George C. Scott, her co-star in, of all things, 1966’s The Bible, would awaken in their bed after drunken rages unaware that he had left Gardner bloody and bruised. No wonder she kept a drink at the ready while mining her memories. The Secret Conversations doesn’t reveal much new about Gardner’s life — she did turn out a memoir before she died in 1990 — and next to nothing about the movies she made, even popular films like On the Beach (1959) and The Night of the Iguana (1964). Caught on tape being herself, Gardner comes off as she had feared — vulgar, cynical and trampy. Her words also carry the tones Evans had hoped for — funny, perceptive and genuine.

TORONTO — Astronaut Chris Hadfield is entering a new kind of frontier — the literary world. The first Canadian to walk in space will release An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth in October. The book will be published by Random House Canada and will offer stories, lessons and experiences from Hadfield’s time in space. Hadfield retired in May after serving as commander of the International Space Station. This step into the arts is a logical one for the 53-year-old, who became an online sensation while in space for his active social media presence and his YouTube videos showing life on the station.

Military arrests top Brotherhood figures EGYPT SWEARS IN INTERIM PRESIDENT AS MILITARY MAKES SWEEP TARGETING MORSI SUPPORTERS BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CAIRO, Egypt — Egypt’s military moved swiftly Thursday against senior figures of the Muslim Brotherhood, targeting the backbone of support for ousted president Mohammed Morsi. In the most dramatic step, authorities arrested the group’s revered leader from a seaside villa and flew him by helicopter to detention in the capital. With a top judge newly sworn in as interim president to replace Morsi, the crackdown poses an immediate test to the new army-backed leadership’s promises to guide Egypt to democracy: The question of how to include the 83-year-old fundamentalist group. That question has long been at the heart of democracy efforts in Egypt. Hosni Mubarak and previous authoritarian regimes banned the group, raising cries even from pro-reform Brotherhood critics that it must be allowed to participate if Egypt was to be free. After Mubarak’s fall, the newly legalized group vaulted to power in elections, with its veteran member Morsi becoming the country’s first freely elected president. Now the group is reeling under a huge backlash from a public that says the Brotherhood and its Islamist allies abused their electoral mandate. The military forced Morsi out Wednesday after millions of Egyptians nationwide turned out in four days of protests demanding he be removed. Furious over what it calls a military coup against democracy, the Brotherhood vowed Thursday it will not work with the new leadership. It and harder-line Islamist allies called for a wave of protests on Friday, dubbing it the “Friday of Rage,” vowing to escalate if the military does not back down. There are widespread fears of Islamist violence in retaliation for Morsi’s ouster, and already some former militant extremists have vowed to fight. Multiple Brotherhood officials on Thursday firmly urged their followers to keep their protests peaceful. Thousands of Morsi supporters remained massed in front of a Cairo mosque where they have camped for days, with line of military armoured vehicles across the road nearby keeping watch. “We declare our complete rejection of the military coup staged against the elected president and the will of the nation,” the Brotherhood said in a statement, read by the group’s senior cleric AbdelRahman el-Barr to the crowd outside the Rabia alAdawiya Mosque in Cairo. “We refuse to participate in any activities with the usurping authorities,” the statement said, urging Morsi supporters to remain peaceful. The Rabia alAdawiya protesters planned to march on the Ministry of Defence on Friday. The Brotherhood denounced the crackdown, including the shutdown Wednesday night of its television channel, Misr25, its newspaper and three proMorsi Islamist TV stations. The military, it said, is returning Egypt to the practices of “the dark, repressive, dictatorial and corrupt ages.” A military statement late Thursday appeared to signal a wider wave of arrests was not in the offing. Spokesman Col. Ahmed Mohammed Ali said in a Facebook posting that that the army and security forces will not take “any exceptional or arbitrary measures” against any political group. The military has a “strong will to ensure national reconciliation, constructive justice and tolerance,” he wrote. He spoke against “gloating” and vengeance, saying only peaceful protests will be tolerated and urging Egyptians not to attack Brotherhood offices to avert an “endless cycle of revenge.” The army’s removal of Morsi sparked massive celebrations Wednesday night among the crowds of protesters around the country, with fireworks, dancing, and blaring car horns lasting close to dawn.


Supporters of Egypt’s Islamist President Mohammed Morsi chant slogans during a rally, in Nasser City, Cairo, Egypt, Thursday. The chief justice of Egypt’s Supreme Constitutional Court was sworn in Thursday as the nation’s interim president, taking over hours after the military ousted the Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. Adly Mansour took the oath of office at the Nile-side Constitutional Court in a ceremony broadcast live on state television. According to military decree, Mansour will serve as Egypt’s interim leader until a new president is elected. A date for that vote has yet to be set. Arabic reads, “the people support legitimacy for the president,”. On Thursday, the extent of the Brotherhood reversal was clear. Adly Mansour, the head of the Supreme Constititonal Court, with which Morsi had repeated confrontations, was sworn in as new interim president. In his inaugural speech, aired nationwide, he said the massive anti-Morsi protests that began Sunday, June 30, had “corrected the path of the glorious revolution of Jan. 25,” referring to the 2011 uprising that toppled Mubarak. To cheers from his audience, he also praised the army, police, media and judiciary for standing against the Brotherhood — all institutions that Islamists saw as full of Mubarak loyalists trying to thwart their rule. Moreover, the constitution, which Islamists drafted and Morsi praised as the greatest in the world, has been suspended. Also, Abdel-Meguid Mahmoud, the Mubarak-era top prosecutor whom Morsi removed to much controversy, was reinstated to his post and immediately announced investigations against Brotherhood officials. Many of the Brotherhood’s opponents want them prosecuted for what they say were crimes committed during Morsi’s rule, just as Mubarak was prosecuted for protester deaths during the uprising against him. Over the past year, dozens were killed in clashes with Brotherhood supporters and with security forces. But the swift moves raise perceptions of a revenge campaign against the Brotherhood. The National Salvation Front, the top opposition political group during Morsi’s presidency and a key member of the coalition that worked with the mili-

tary in his removal, criticized the moves. “We totally reject excluding any party, particularly political Islamic groups.” The Front has proposed one of its top leaders, Mohammed ElBaradei, to become prime minister of the interim Cabinet, a post that will hold strong powers since Mansour’s presidency post is considered symbolic. ElBaradei, a Nobel Peace laureate who once headed the U.N. nuclear watchdog, is considered the country’s top reform advocate. “Reconciliation is the name of the game, including the Muslim Brotherhood. We need to be inclusive,” Munir Fakhry Abdel-Nour, a leading member of the group, told The Associated Press. “The detentions are a mistake.” He said the arrests appeared to be prompted by security officials’ fears over possible calls for violence by Brotherhood leaders. There may be complaints against certain individuals in the Brotherhood “but they don’t justify the detention,” he said, predicting they will be released in the coming days. Abdel-Nour said the Front intends to ensure the military has no role in politics. He added that the Front is hoping for the backing of ultraconservative Salafis for ElBaradei’s bid for prime minister. Some Salafi factions have sided with the new leadership. He noted that the Islamist-backed constitution was not outright cancelled in a gesture to Salafis. Morsi has been under detention in an unknown location since Wednesday night, and at least a dozen of his top presidential aides and advisers have been under what is described as “house arrest,” though their locations are also unknown.

Mandela on life support, Americans celebrate July 4th with faces ‘impending death’ reopening of Statue of Liberty BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS JOHANNESBURG, South Africa — Nelson Mandela is being kept alive by a breathing machine and faces “impending death,” court documents show. The former president’s health is “perilous,” according to documents filed in the court case that resulted in the remains of his three deceased children being reburied Thursday in their original graves. “The anticipation of his impending death is based on real and substantial grounds,” the court filing said. Mandela, who was hospitalized on June 8, remains in critical but stable condition, according to the office of President Jacob Zuma, who visited the anti-apartheid leader on Thursday. The president’s office also said doctors denied reports that 94-year-old Mandela is in a “vegetative state.” A younger person put on mechanical ventilation — life support — can be weaned off the machine and recover, but that it can be difficult or impossible for an older person. The longer a person is on ventilation the less the chance of recovery, said the chief executive of the Faculty of Consulting Physicians of South Africa. “It indicates a very poor prognosis for recovery because it means that he’s either too weak or too sick to breathe on his own,” said Dr. Adri Kok, who has no connection to Mandela’s care. “Usually if a person does need that, any person, not keeping in mind his age at all, for any person it would be indicative of a grave illness.” “When they say ’perilous’ I think that would be a fair description,” she said. In Mandela’s hometown, Qunu, on Thursday, the bodies of three of his children were returned to their original resting site following the court order. Family members and community elders attended a ceremony on the Mandela property that included the singing of hymns. The reburial took place in Qunu, where Mandela grew

up and where the former president has said he wants to be buried. Forensic tests earlier confirmed the remains were those of Mandela’s children. Grandson Mandla Mandela moved the bodies to his village of Mvezo — Nelson Mandela’s birthplace — in 2011. The two towns are about 25 kilometres (15 miles) apart. Fifteen Mandela family members pursued court action last week to force the grandson to move the bodies back to their original burial site. Mandla Mandela — the oldest male Mandela heir and a tribal chief — told a news conference on Thursday that his grandfather “would be highly disappointed in what is unraveling.” Retired archbishop Desmond Tutu appealed to the family of Mandela, also known by his clan name Madiba, to overcome their differences. “Please, please, please may we think not only of ourselves. It’s almost like spitting in Madiba’s face,” Tutu said in a statement. “Your anguish, now, is the nation’s anguish — and the world’s. We want to embrace you, to support you, to shine our love for Madiba through you.” Mlawu Tyatyeka, an expert on the Xhosa culture of Mandela’s family, said the court case over the graves was decided quickly because the family knows that Mandela will soon die. “It’s not a case of wishing him to die. It’s a case of making sure that by the time he dies, his dying wish has been fulfilled,” he said. “We have a belief that should you ignore a dying wish, all bad will befall you.” Meanwhile, Mandela’s wife said the former president is sometimes uncomfortable but seldom in pain while being treated in a hospital. Graca Machel spoke about her husband’s condition at a fundraising drive for a children’s hospital to be named after Mandela. “Whatever is the outcome of his stay in hospital, that will remain the second time where he offered his nation an opportunity to be united under the banner of our flag, under the banner of our constitution,” she said.

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK — The Statue of Liberty reopened on the Fourth of July, eight months after Superstorm Sandy shuttered the national symbol of freedom, as Americans around the country celebrated with fireworks and parades and President Obama urged citizens to live up to the words of the Declaration of Independence. Hundreds lined up Thursday to be among the first to board boats destined for Lady Liberty, including New Yorker Heather Leykam and her family. “This, to us, Liberty Island, is really about a rebirth,” said Leykam, whose mother’s home was destroyed during the storm. “It is a sense of renewal for the city and the country. We wouldn’t have missed it for the world.” Nationwide, Boston prepared to host its first large gathering since the marathon bombing that killed three and injured hundreds, and Philadelphia, Washington and New Orleans geared up for large holiday concerts. A Civil War reenactment commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg drew as many as 40,000 people to Pennsylvania. In Arizona, sober tributes were planned for 19 firefighters who died this week battling a blaze near Yarnell. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell, speaking at the reopening of the Statue of Liberty, choked up as she told the crowd she was wearing a purple ribbon in memory of the fallen firefighters. “Nineteen firefighters lost their lives in the line of duty, and we as a nation stand together,” she said through tears. The island was decorated with starspangled bunting, but portions remain blocked off with large construction equipment, and the main ferry dock was boarded up. Repairs to brick walkways and docks were ongoing. But much of the work has been completed since Sandy swamped the 12-acre island in New York Harbor, and visitors were impressed. “It’s stunning, it’s beautiful,” said

Elizabeth Bertero, 46, of California’s Sonoma County. “They did a great job rebuilding. You don’t really notice that anything happened.” The statue itself was unharmed, but the land took a beating. Railings broke, docks and paving stones were torn up and buildings were flooded. The storm destroyed electrical systems, sewage pumps and boilers. Hundreds of National Park Service workers from as far away as California and Alaska spent weeks cleaning mud and debris. “It is one of the most enduring icons of America, and we pulled it off — it’s open today,” National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis said. The statue was open for a single day last year — Oct. 28, the day before Sandy struck. It had been closed the previous year for security upgrades. Neighboring Ellis Island remains closed and there has been no reopening date set. Elsewhere in New York, throngs of revelers packed Brooklyn’s Coney Island to see competitive eating champ Joey Chestnut scarf down 69 hot dogs to break a world record and win the title for a seventh year at the 98th annual Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest. Sonya Thomas defended her title with nearly 37 dogs. In his weekly radio address from Washington, Obama urged Americans to work to secure liberty and opportunity for their own children and future generations. The first family was to host U.S. servicemen and women at the White House for a cookout. Atlanta and Alaska planned holiday runs — thousands were racing up a 3,022-foot peak in Seward. In New Orleans, the Essence Festival celebrating black culture and music, kicked off along the riverfront. The celebratory mood turned sombre in Oklahoma and Maine with fatal accidents during parades. In Edmond, Okla., a boy died after being run over by a float near the end of the town’s LibertyFest parade. In Bangor, Maine, the driver of a tractor in the parade was killed after the vehicle was struck by an old fire truck.

Ocean mapping satellite decommissioned after 11 years JASON-1 TRACKED RISING SEA LEVELS; PUT IN RETIREMENT AFTER CIRCLING GLOBE 53,500 TIMES BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PASADENA, Calif. — Jason-1, a satellite that for more than a decade precisely tracked rising sea levels across a vast sweep of ocean and helped forecasters make better weather and climate predictions, has ended its useful life after circling the globe more than 53,500 times, NASA announced Wednesday. The joint U.S. and French satellite was decommissioned this week after its last remaining transmitter failed, according to a NASA statement. Launched on Dec. 7, 2001, Jason-1 was designed to have a lifespan of three to five years but it lasted for 11 ½ years. Every 10 days, its instruments scanned the ocean surface, mapping sea level, wind speed and wave height for more than 95 per cent of the planet’s ice-free ocean area. It was one of three oceanographic satellites that contributed to a 20-year record of sea-level changes, NASA said. “Jason-1 has been a resounding scientific, technical and international success,” said John Grunsfeld, associate administrator of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington. Since its launch, Jason-1 recorded a rise of nearly 1.6 inches in global sea levels that are “a critical measure of climate change and a direct result of global warming,” Grunsfeld said in a statement. “The Jason satellite

series provides the most accurate measure of this impact, which is felt all over the globe.” Last year, the 1,100-pound (500-kilogram) satellite was moved into a final “graveyard” orbit where, its extra fuel depleted, it was assigned to observe Earth’s gravity field over the ocean, NASA said. A 406-day scan completed on June 17 led to the discovery of many underwater seamounts and increased knowledge of the depth of the ocean floor, researchers said. “Even from its ’graveyard’ orbit, Jason-1 continued to make unprecedented new observations of the Earth’s gravity field, with precise measurements right till the end,” said JeanYves Le Gall, president of France’s Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales in Paris. Contact with the satellite was lost

Mixed-breed sea turtle seen laying eggs in Japan for first time BY ADVOCATE NEWS SERVICES A mixed-breed of sea turtle was found laying eggs last week on a beach in Kagoshima Prefecture, according to a nongovernmental organization specializing in sea turtles, the first discovery of its kind in the country. The turtle was found on a beach in the town of Tatsugo in the northern part of Amami-Oshima island Wednesday evening, according to Takashi Ishihara, chief researcher of the Osakabased Sea Turtle Association of Japan. With a shell measuring 82.4 centimeters (2.7 feet) long and 65.2 centimeters (2.1 feet) wide, it appeared to be a loggerhead turtle, which is listed as an endangered species. However, it also showed characteristics of a hawksbill turtle, also an endangered species, with its pointy-edged and imbricated tilelike shell. Ishihara and his colleagues took a sample of the turtle’s skin for DNA analysis. With the prefecture’s permission, the association also took home 20 of the eggs to hatch them artificially and observe the traits of the turtlets. “Japan is the only egg-laying site for loggerhead turtles in the northern Pacific,” Ishihara said. “If mixed-breed of turtles increase in the country, they could endanger the preservation of the species.” Brazil is the only confirmed place where cross turtles have been witnessed laying eggs.

proved their models of ocean circulation and monitored events such as El Nino, where large masses of warm water pool in the eastern Pacific Ocean. “These Pacific Ocean climate cycles are responsible for major shifts in sea level, ocean temperatures and rainfall every two to five years, and can sometimes be so large that worldwide weather patterns are affected. Jason-1 data has been instrumental in monitoring and predicting these ever-changing cycles,” said Lee-Lueng Fu, Jason-1 project scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena. Jason-1 worked in tandem with and then replaced Topex-Poseidon, which was launched in 1992 and was decommissioned in 2006. Jason-2 was launched in 2008 and is still operating. Another satellite, Jason-3, is scheduled for launch in March 2015.

on June 21 and efforts to re-establish it failed. On Monday, the satellite was ordered to turn off its attitude control systems. Jason-1 will slowly turn away from the sun and its solar-powered batteries will drain within the next 90 days, NASA said. Jason-1 will remain in orbit for at least 1,000 years before it falls back into Earth’s atmosphere, NASA said. Jason-1 was one of three oceanographic satellites that carried a radar altimeter and bounced radio pulses off the Earth, enabling sea surface height to be determined to within a few centimetres. Sea surface height changes with temperature so altimeter measurements are means to determine how much heat is stored in any given area of the ocean and how that changes. From the data, scientists have im-
