Public market keeps growing BY SUSAN ZIELINSKI ADVOCATE STAFF It was a record day at Saturday’s Red Deer public market with 230 vendors. Dennis Moffat, mar- BIKE CORRAL ket manager, said the CATCHING biggest public market CYCLISTS BY in the province just SURPRISE A2 got bigger. “There are other places that advertise they’re the biggest farmers’ market. We don’t have the restrictions of a farmers’ market. We allow everybody in as long as it’s legal,” said Moffat about the Red Deer Market that has run for 43 years. This season the number of vendors has been steady in the low 200s. He estimated about 15,000 people visit each week. Some people come to Red Deer just for the market and it’s attracted some bus tours from Calgary. “We do about $2.5 million worth of business in the 88 hours that we’re open. “That’s an amazing amount of commerce.” Moffat said so far only one Saturday this season was rained out and the variety of food vendors is one of the reasons people attend.

Nineteen-month old Keeley MacDiarmid, of Calgary, didn’t want to leave her sandy spot at Sylvan Lake on Sunday.
Families dig beachfront sand BY SUSAN ZIELINSKI ADVOCATE STAFF
New sand on a small piece of Sylvan Lake’s beachfront was a magnet for young families on the weekend. Bruce MacDiarmid, of Calgary, said the last time he was in Sylvan lake five years ago sand was hard to find. “It is beautiful. The sand is nice. The kids need an area where they can play and this is perfect,” said MacDiarmid who was at the beach with his young family on Sunday.
Chris Trevors, of Edmonton, was also impressed. “I just know everyone is having a pretty good time. Kids just love to run in the sand and play, right,” said Trevors near a sand pit his young family helped fill with water, perfect for splashing around to keep cool. The town added sand to the existing sandy area near the southeast corner of the pier on July 10 and 11 to improve the beach area.
A post barrier system will be installed to ensure vehicles do not have access to the area. Removable bollards will create a drive lane in the winter months for lake access. The area will be monitored and protected from runoff. The project, located on provincial land, cost $25,000. In the 1970s and ’80s, the town dredged up sand to restore the beach each spring. Alberta Environment does not allow that practice anymore.

As a former health-care aid, Jennifer Vanderschaeghe built one-on-one relationships with those in her charge. When she switched to the field of AIDS and HIV 20 years ago, cultivating relationships remained her focus. “The only way we can do what we do is that we work to build relationships with all the people we come across. People who are having terrible days. People who are having great days. People who work in office buildings. People who live outside,” said Vanderschaeghe, executive director of Central Alberta AIDS Network Society (CAANS). Then come the difficult, but necessary, conversations. “It would be very simple if our job was just to cut flowers and sell flowers to people who wanted flowers. Our job is to talk about sex and drugs to people who don’t want to talk about sex and drugs, and certainly don’t want to disclose what is happening during those very intimate times,” said Vander-
schaeghe, 41. In 1993 when she began her career as a volunteer with Lethbridge AIDS Connection, now Lethbridge HIV Connection, she attended 12 funerals in about a year. Eleven of those who died were gay men at a time when there wasn’t medication to stop the reproduction of HIV and the disease progressed quickly. “Now when I go to funerals it’s more likely to be people who are street-involved and folks who are part of our harm reduction programs, so people who use drugs. Their deaths are everything from violence to overdose to cardiovascular disease. It’s not one thing that’s killing them.” Now people receiving HIV medication, which is available free in Alberta, can expect to live almost a normal lifespan, she said. “You might lose 15 years rather than losing 60 years. Having said that, if you don’t know you have HIV, if you don’t have access to medications, than you don’t have the luxury of a longer lifespan.”

NEWS IN BRIEF
Falling steel kills male pedestrian, 32, in downtown Montreal MONTREAL — A huge slab of steel broke free from a front-end payloader in downtown Montreal on Monday, fatally slamming into a 32-year-old pedestrian. ”He was hit by a big metal plate, he was severely
injured and he was quickly taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead shortly after his arrival,“ said Montreal police spokeswoman Anie Lemieux. Lemieux confirmed the plate was being moved at the time. She also added that the workplace accident near the Bell Centre is being investigated by Quebec’s health and safety board. According to a safety board official, the mishap occurred while an excavation company was operating a mechanical shovel that was transporting a steel plate. “The hook that was preventing the plate from sliding opened,” Fanny Geoffrion said in an interview.
“Something happened to the hook . .and the plate fell on the pedestrian.” She said the board will continue its investigation and make public its report in six months. The tragedy occurred as thousands of Quebec’s construction workers began returning to their jobs following their traditional two-week summer vacation period. Coincidentally, the health and safety board had issued a statement just a few hours before the death to remind some 160,000 construction workers to be vigilant on the job.

MARKET: Lineups common at food vendors Stan and Myrna Klepach, of Red Deer, said they always stop at Flippin Good Crepes. “Actually it’s our first stop to fortify ourselves for the rest of the farmers’ market,” said Stan Klepach with a Clubhouse Twist crepe in his hand. Myrna Klepach said there’s a certain skill to making crepes and it’s not something they can do at home. Thinking about going crepe-less when the market ends for the season makes her sad, she said with a laugh. Soren Hansen, of Red Deer, said he sticks with his favourite, a bacon egger at Yoland’s Breakfast Nook whenever he comes to the market. “It’s really a shame the season is so short in this country. People love this. Look at the people. It’s awesome,” said Hansen about the continuous crowd, many munching away before, after or during their shopping. Lineups were common at the food vendors, including people waiting for something sweet at Get Stuffed Churros. “We were down in Brazil in 2007 and they have one of these almost on every corner selling stuffed Churros. Fresh is so much different. You just can’t beat it,” said owner Ryan Mennear working the booth with his wife Paula, of Wetaskiwin. When his family got back from their vacation, his craving for a fresh churro was so strong he decided to build the equipment to make the South American-style churro. Mennear, a teacher, said he is contemplating franchising Get Stuffed Churros. Chedda’ Heads has only been in business for seven weeks. Owner Richard Dowling, of Red Deer, said he’d been thinking about joining the food truck scene after seeing the popularity first-hand in New York City in 2009. He decided to offer gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches. Dowling said coming up with his sandwiches took some trial and error, burnt bread, and testing with friends, family and even strangers. For those market visitors who prefer to do their own cooking, crisp and colourful produce was available from local growers. Shelley Bradshaw, of Beck Farms at the Innisfail Growers booth, said farmers have had some surprises, as usual, this season. “Field cucumbers are two to three weeks earlier than normal. We had warm nights. They continue to grow at night,” Bradshaw said. “We should have been harvesting beets three weeks ago. We tried yesterday. They’re too wet. They don’t like water so they’re struggling.” She said kohlrabi is 10 days early. About half of the carrot crop harvested last week were small because wind and hail knocked them flat. “Every year is an interesting year for a different reason.” Red Deer Market, located at 4751 43rd St. in the

AIDS: Stigma continues in society In Canada, statistics say between 25 and 33 per cent of people infected with HIV don’t know it. “More than 50 per cent of people getting HIV are getting it from people who don’t know they have HIV. You have 25 per cent of the people living with HIV transmitting over 50 per cent of the infections, which is a frightening statistic,” Vanderschaeghe said about the research out of British Columbia. She said people with HIV aren’t as isolated by their families, friends or church nowadays. But the stigma continues in society. “People are still very mean to people living with HIV, which is too bad. I think the good news is people are living with HIV longer which means as we move throughout the years, we’ll see more people being open about their HIV status which will help dispel some of the bad stigma and ultimately the behaviour.” Twenty years ago, Vanderschaeghe said she wanted to do something “interesting and provocative” in Lethbridge. That led to a stint as interim executive director at Living Positive in inner city Edmonton. She’s just can’t stay. It’s nice to have the option.” The corral, located on the north east corner of the curling rink, is a free service to encourage people to use their bikes to travel to the market. “It’s like a coat check for bikes,” said network staff member Sarah Bourne who keeps bikes safe at the corral. By 11 a.m., 30 cyclists had used the corral. Cyclist Ed Varty, of Red Deer, who usually doesn’t visit the market, was also happy to see the corral. “I didn’t know this was here. It’s great idea,” said Varty as he parked his bike by his wife’s bike

“We restored what was there and washed away,” said Joanne Gaudet, communications officer with the Town of Sylvan Lake, about the freshly sanded area. “It’s by no means a solution for those who are looking for a sandy beach. But it’s a start and what was available to us as far as minimal impact on the environment as well as budget.” This summer beach ambassadors will be surveying beach-goers to find out what they think of the sand upgrade.

Governments, industry team up on pipeline research
BY THE CANADIAN PRESS

A Red Deer man involved in a serious collision near Sylvan Lake on Saturday morning has been charged with dangerous driving causing bodily harm and transporting liquor in an open container. Sylvan Lake RCMP say the man’s eastbound pickup truck crossed the centre line on Hwy 11, about one and a half km west of Sylvan Lake, and collided a westbound Jeep at about 9:33 a.m. The Jeep flipped over in the north ditch and was heavily damaged. The driver and lone occupant of the Jeep, an 80-year-old woman from Red Deer, was injured and transported by ambulance to Red Deer Regional Hospital. She was released from hospital on Saturday. The truck ended up on the highway’s south shoulder. A third vehicle following the Jeep was struck with debris from the truck. The occupants were not injured. Anthony Richard Watts, 35, was charged and released from police custody on bail by a justice of the peace to appear in Red Deer provincial court on Aug. 23. Police say alcohol was a factor in the collision. Traffic in both directions was re-routed from Hwy 11 for about two hours during the investigation.
Mounties fire guns during roadside stop WETASKIWIN — Days after a deadly shooting in Toronto sparked a debate over police use of force, Alberta’s police watchdog is looking into three separate incidents that saw officers use their firearms or a Taser. The latest incident in Alberta happened Saturday night when police say an officer with the Wetaskiwin RCMP detachment pulled over a suspected impaired driver near Ma Me O Beach, south of Edmonton. RCMP say there was an altercation and the officer shot two men who were in the car. A 30-year-old man from Pigeon Lake, Alta., died and a 41-year-old man, also from Pigeon Lake, was transported to hospital in Edmonton. On Friday, RCMP used a Taser on a 27-year-old man during an arrest in Leduc, Alta. The man died Sunday morning. On Thursday, RCMP in Grande Cache shot and wounded a man who has since been identified by family as Curtis Hallock, a regular character on the reality TV show “Mantracker.” The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team, which reviews incidents involving police that result in death or serious injury, is conducting independent investigations into all three incidents. The head of the agency cautioned about reading too much into the incidents when asked by a reporter whether the public should question its confidence in police. “I don’t think generally speaking the public needs to be concerned about being stopped,” Clifton Purvis told a news conference on Sunday. “In fact, I think probably in Canada we’re one of the very few jurisdictions worldwide where your first reaction when you get pulled over by police isn’t fear, it’s ’Oh gosh, I got a ticket.”’ The debate over how much force police should use was propelled into the national spotlight last week after the fatal shooting of Sammy Yatim, 18, in Toronto last month. Yatim died after being shot by police aboard an empty Toronto streetcar he had cleared out by brandishing a knife. Video of the incident has been viewed by many people online and his death has sparked protests and prompted an online petition calling for criminal charges to be filed against the officer who fired the shots. The officer was suspended and the case is being reviewed by an independent agency. Purvis said Saturday’s incident began when an RCMP officer who was alone in a marked police cruiser pulled over a vehicle with five males inside on suspicion the driver might be impaired.
Purvis said that while the officer while arresting one of the males, an altercation occurred with the other four, and that the officer shot two members of the group. One male was pronounced dead at the scene and the other was taken to hospital. The remaining males were taken into custody. “Because this is an ongoing investigation, and it is still in its very early stages, I cannot comment further at this time in relation to the circumstances of that incident,” Purvis said. RCMP said the man who they used a Taser on during the arrest Friday was a suspect in a series of assaults, theft of automobiles, driving complaints and hit-and-runs. They said they stopped him at a gas station, but they said there was a physical confrontation and that’s when the Taser was used. Mounties said he was then handcuffed but went into medical distress and was transported to hospital in Edmonton in life-threatening condition before dying on Sunday. Purvis said his team isn’t linking the use of the weapon with the man’s death. “There will be an autopsy conducted on that male later this week, and it’s hoped the results of the autopsy will confirm the cause of death,” Purvis said. The identities of the men who died have not been released. Purvis also said he couldn’t provide much detail about the shooting Thursday near Grande Cache, since he said a suspect is facing charges, though he didn’t know if they have been formally laid. RCMP have released few details about the shooting, but they have said two officers were trying to pull over a suspected impaired driver when a confrontation ensued and a man was shot. He fled, but was caught a short time later and taken to the local hospital. A relative said Friday that Curtis Hallock was shot in the leg and arm. “Mantracker” airs on the Outdoor Life Network (OLN) and features an expert tracker and his sidekick on horseback who pursue two contestants in the remote wilderness. Purvis said the police vehicle at the shooting Saturday was equipped with a video camera and his investigators hoped the recording would assist them. Purvis also said there was cellphone video and a number of witnesses to the incident with the Taser in Leduc and is hoping they will contact his team, and he noted that forensic investigators with his team were at the location of Thursday’s shooting near Grande Cache.

EDMONTON — At least three governments and two energy industry groups are leading what they hope will be a “pan-Canadian” approach to find ways to improve the country’s pipelines. As three controversial megaprojects generate headlines across the country, the Canadian Pipeline Technology Collaborative is to look for ways to make the system safer and more efficient, said industry spokeswoman Brenda Kenny. “The program objective is, number one, technology development,” said Kenny, who is with the Canadian Energy Pipeline Association. “We think we can do better on the technology innovation curve. “(But) if we achieved nothing but leverage, clear priorities, replace duplication with going harder and faster on things that matter, that sort of opportunity would itself boost the outcome.” Alberta, British Columbia and Natural Resources Canada, as well as the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers and the pipeline association are setting up the collaborative, which is expected to be operational by late fall. Universities, environmental and aboriginal groups are likely to be invited to the table eventually, said Kenny. The Saskatchewan government has also been approached. “We’re hoping this will be a pan-Canadian approach,” said Richard Wayken, vice-president of Alberta Innovates, the provincial agency that first proposed the idea. “This is something that everybody feels is needed and it feels like the right time.” The group’s goal is to sponsor “targeted” research at universities and other institutions using public and private dollars. “If we can get a clear organizing framework with clear players involved and clear strategies and priorities, the money will follow,” Kenny said. “Industry is investing heavily already. Next-generation breakthrough improvements that maybe have a longer lead time are maybe better done in a public setting.” The new group also plans to spread information about current research. Kenny notes one Alberta program is spending more than $4 million on better leak detection methods. “What we need to change is the fact that that project has happened in a three- or four-way conversation and other folks across the country don’t even know it’s going on.” The group could also help develop new regulatory standards. Wayken said the ultimate goal is to bring together everyone from scientists to suppliers to improve the pipeline industry’s performance. “To bring technology to market and to use, you need to engage across a broad spectrum.” He said competitive pressures will impel industry to adopt good ideas. “Technologies will naturally have an uptake.” Kenny acknowledges controversy around pipeline proposals such as the Northern Gateway to the B.C. coast, the Keystone XL into the U.S. and the recently announced Energy East project has had a part in the collaboration’s formation. “This does play in to the fact that as Canada moves to increase the movement of energy, we need to redouble efforts to ensure there is no stone left unturned,” she said. “There’s clearly a whole new conversation happening about energy and environment and economy in Canada today. Our central duty in that is to do everything we can to assure a safe and socially and environmentally responsible pipeline industry for Canadians.” Keith Stewart of Greenpeace said it’s telling that no environmental or aboriginal groups have been invited to help determine the group’s goals and objectives. “Industry says, ’Oh yes, of course we’ll engage people — after we’ve set everything up.’ The people who have been expressing concerns aren’t getting any say on setting terms of reference, the types of things that are going to be looked at, how it’s going to operate.” Wayken, who’s been working on the proposal for almost a year, said broader involvement will come. “We’re just not there yet. We need to start somewhere.”

Causes of phenomena pollination services from honeybees such as colony collapse disorder and alone is estimated at $14 billion in the other declines in bee populations are
not entirely understood, but scientists are getting closer to knowing why bees are dying. Ironically, much of it relates to agricultural practices. Modern methods of growing food are killing one of our biggest helpers in food production. Wild bees also face threats from climate change and habitat loss. A recent study published in Science found half the wild bee species in the U.S. were wiped out during the 20th century. That’s been partly attributed to “an increasing mismatch between when plants flowered and when bees were active, a finding consistent with climate change,” according to the Guardian. Causes of honeybee deaths are more complicated. Colony collapse disorder has wiped out millions of hives over the past decade, with pesticide use, parasites and poor nutrition eyed as likely culprits. Scientists from the University of Maryland and U.S. Department of Agriculture recently found pollen collected by honeybees was contaminated with a toxic mix of pesticides and fungicides. It appears the toxins make the bees more vulnerable to a parasite called Nosema ceranae, which is believed to cause colony collapse disorder. Pollen samples contained an average of nine
different agricultural pesticides and fungicides, and as many as 21 in one case. The European Union has imposed a two-year ban on three neonicotinoids, a class of pesticides thought to be responsible for the dramatic declines in Europe’s bee populations, but only for use on ‘crops attractive to bees’. However, according to the Maryland study’s lead author, Dennis vanEngelsdorp, quoted in the online news outlet Quartz, “It’s a lot more complicated than just one product, which means of course the solution does not lie in just banning one class of product.” We need to get a handle on the toxic chemicals we use to grow food. If our practices kill insects and birds that make it possible to grow crops, we’re defeating their purpose and putting ourselves and the rest of nature at risk. As individuals, we can help bees. Stop using pesticides and join the call to ban the worst ones. Plant beefriendly plants and gardens, make wild bee ‘houses’ and learn more about our fuzzy, buzzing friends.

New dog park lacks facilities Yesterday, I got a phone call from a Red Deer resident with a concern. He and his wife took their dog to the new off-leash park on the south side. Although pleased with having the park available, he had a question. Why did this mayor and council spend thousands of dollars having a monument built to put a brass plaque on to honor themselves for putting an off-leash park on a landfill site that could be used for very little else? It will be years before anything like housing etc. can be built there. Their concern? No washroom facility, not even a porta-potty. As a grandparent, I wouldn’t want my grandkids heading off into the bush on a landfill site on the edge of town to answer a nature call. I also

Consumers’ ability to buy Canadian wine stomped on As vacationers travel around Canada this summer, here is a question to ponder for those who sip fine Canadian wine: why do so many provincial politicians oppose free trade in wine among the provinces? Before last year, it was illegal for Canadian wineries to ship direct to consumers in another province. That was unlike, say, how a Quebec dairy producer can sell cheese to a grocery store chain based anywhere in Canada. You may recall that Dan Albas, a federal Member of Parliament, tried to help consumers and Canadian wineries bust through interprovincial blockages with the introduction of his Private Member’s Bill C-311. Passed last year by Parliament, the bill amended a 1928 federal law that prohibited transporting ‘intoxicating liquors’, i.e., wine, across provincial borders. That law, the Importation of Intoxicating Liquors Act, resulted from post-Prohibition era requests from the provinces to gain more control over alcohol sales. But because of Bill C-311, which struck down the prohibition, there is no longer any federal reason for not ordering a case of wine from a Canadian winery regardless of where you live. Alas. Some provincial politicians oppose free trade in wine. That is because they might lose some revenue from lost mark-ups and taxes if consumers buy direct from another province; and retailers might lose a few sales. Thus, some provinces continue to try and block now federally freed-up wine shipments. They do this by retaining bans on transporting wine not bought at the government-approved stores

(Quebec), or by just pretending consumers cannot import wine unless they personally drive it across a provincial border. For example, last year, Alberta Finance Minister Doug Horner told the Alberta Liquor Industry conference his government would not allow “a separate liquor retail channel, an out-of-province one for that matter, directly selling to Albertans. Or ponder the Liquor Control Board of Ontario’s (LCBO) nanny-like ‘policy statement’ forbidding Ontarians from importing wine except where they personally bring it back themselves. Both Ontario and Alberta are short-sighted. Freedom to buy direct from wineries in other provinces would be helpful to domestic wineries, especially smaller ones. If they can ship directly to consumers, wineries could both keep more of the final price while at the same time cutting prices — by cutting out the middlemen, including the cost of dealing with government wholesalers such as the LCBO or Alberta wine wholesalers — for consumers. Some provinces are more sensible. In conjunction with Albas’ push for open wine markets, the New Democratic government in Manitoba has already jumped on board and passed legislation to explicitly allow consumers in that province to buy wine direct; the Nova Scotia NDP government recently introduced legislation to the same end. Even Alberta and Ontario, despite their bluster, do not actually legally bans consumers from having wine shipped direct from wineries in other provinces. In Alberta, ‘An adult may import from another province liquor for the adult’s personal use or consumption’ is how section 89 of the Gaming and

Liquor Regulation reads, with no mention of the specify the method of importing, whether by planes, trains, automobiles or Canada Post. In Ontario, a legal opinion from the Alliance of Canadian Wine Consumers points out that the LCBO policy directive that forbids Ontarians from importing wine, ‘probably has no legal effect as it is not supported by statute or regulation.’ Ontario and Alberta cannot prevent residents from buying wine directly from wineries in other provinces, not unless they change the law to explicitly restrict shipment methods. (As for other provinces, the laws are either murky or set low limits on wine imports no matter the method, and this includes, bizarrely, British Columbia.) Wineries and consumers might well be tempted to ignore the anti-free trade rhetoric from their protectionist-minded provincial governments, and do direct business anyway. To make sure all Canadians have a cross-country open market though, the federal government could go one step further than the 2012 Albas bill. It could amend the 1928 legislation even further, and strip the provinces of control over imports of beer, wine and spirits from other provinces. Ottawa could even get creative and use its constitutional power of disallowance and enforce free trade in wine, beer and spirits among the provinces. After all, striking down protectionist provincial actions is something federal governments once regularly did and still possesses the constitutional power to do. Maybe Ottawa should resurrect the practice, starting with free trade in Canadian wine. Mark Milke is a Senior Fellow with the Fraser Institute.

Sleeping boys killed by snake PYTHON ESCAPES FROM SHOP, TWO BOYS BELIEVED STRANGLED BY THE CANADIAN PRESS CAMPBELLTON, N.B. — Two young boys were killed by a python snake as they slept in an apartment above an exotic pet store in northern New Brunswick, the RCMP said Monday. Const. Jullie Rogers-Marsh said the boys, aged five and seven, were visiting the apartment of a friend above Reptile Ocean Inc. in Campbellton when the incident occurred. Rogers-Marsh said police arrived at the apartment around 6:30 a.m., at which point officers found the two dead boys. “It (the snake) had escaped its enclosure at the store sometime through the night, got into the ventilation system and into the upstairs apartment,” said Rogers-Marsh. “It’s believed the two boys were strangled by the snake.” She said the snake was later captured and is in the possession of police.
Rogers-Marsh said autopsies were to be performed on the two victims today. She couldn’t confirm whether the two boys were related. She said the owner of the reptile store lived in the apartment above. Calls to the pet store were not returned on Monday but deputy mayor Ian Comeau said Reptile Ocean was licensed to operate and “everything was according to our bylaws, to the provincial guidelines.” The deaths of the boys have been “a shock ... it is unbelievable,” Comeau said Monday evening. “Some still don’t believe it,” said Comeau, who toured the shop with the fire department about two years ago. Firefighters had to “know where these animals were — alligators, crocodiles and snakes,” he said. “They were there,” he said, adding “I’m not a fan of snakes.”

Decision to withdraw from NATO programs costs Canada GOVERNMENT CANCELS PARTICIPATION IN TWO NATO SURVEILLANCE PROGRAMS space industry was reluctant to comment about the impending end of the arrangement. “This is something our members have been aware of for quite some time,” Kristen VanderHoek, of the Aerospace Industries Association of Canada, said in an email. “At this point we don’t have anything new to add.” Participation in the joint program goes back over 30 years. The air force contributes pilots and maintainers to a NATO pool. As airborne early warning and control aircraft, the E-3A AWACS were used to great effect during the Libya bombing campaign and have
done long-standing service in the skies over Afghanistan, as well as on other operations. Until recently, a Canadian headed up AWACS operations wing at the air base in Geilenkirchen, Germany. It was left to a U.S. air force general to not only sum up departing Col. John Backstrom’s contribution, but the entire Canadian involvement, which
has been instrumental in transforming the converted Boeing 707 fleet from a straightforward radar platform into an airborne command centre. “It was under Canadian leadership that the Operations Wing transformed the operation of the E-3A aircraft from largely an airborne early warning and surveillance platform to a mod-
ern-day airborne (command) force equipped and ready to provide command and control to the NATO commanders of the 21st century,” U.S. Maj. Gen. Andrew Mueller during a change of command in June. The withdrawal smacks of thoughtlessness, and a desperate attempt to cut the budget without looking, said McKay.

OTTAWA — The Harper government’s decision to cancel Canadian participation in two NATO surveillance programs will cost contracts in the country’s aerospace industry, newly released documents show. National Defence was hoping to save as much as $90 million per year by withdrawing from the jointly owned and operated Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) and the Alliance Ground Surveillance (AGS), a fairly new program meant to utilize drones to monitor the battlefield. Yet, documents released to The Canadian Press under access to information legislation show that taking part has meant a bonanza of tens of millions of dollars worth of work annually for at least half a dozen high-tech Canadian companies. With the Canadian military no longer part of the sharing arrangement, those companies will be shut out of further bidding and not allowed to renew their existing contracts. “Canadian industry will be affected by our withdrawal from AWACS” operations and service agreement, said a Jan. 12, 2012 memo to former defence minister Peter MacKay. The notice of withdrawal was penned in 2011 in a letter sent by Prime Minister Stephen Harper to NATO’s secretary general. It’s a curious decision, especially in light of a blue-ribbon panel report prepared last spring for former public works minister Rona Ambrose, which essentially suggested Canada be smarter at how it leverages defence spending for the benefit of the country’s industry. The country’s military representative at NATO, Vice-Admiral Bob Davidson, said the move makes strategic sense because Canada is looking to develop its own systems, especially when it comes to drones. “Fundamentally, it is about a better way for the government to focus our defence spending,” Davidson said in a recent interview from Brussels. “And we’re trying to put more of our defence spending towards Canadian capabilities.” Liberal defence critic John McKay is flummoxed, especially since the Conservatives tried to sell their multi-billiondollar plan to buy F-35s on the basis the stealth fighter meant jobs for the aerospace sector. Between 1992 and 2010, Canada contributed $161 million towards so-called depot level maintenance of NATO’s
AWACS fleet, but Canadian companies received $180 million in contracts as part of the service package. Since 2010, the country’s aerospace industry has pocketed roughly $12.9 million annually in AWACS service. Similarly, when it came time to overhaul and upgrade the giant domed-aircraft, whose powerful radar detects enemy aircraft at great distances, Canadian companies were among the first in line to benefit. They received $146 million of the work — or a 115 per cent return on the defence department’s investment. The group representing the country’s aero-

Legion happy Bell of Batoche returned, but it wants its medals back BY THE CANADIAN PRESS

A backhoe is seen after it was swallowed by a sinkhole in Montreal on Monday.
Huge sinkhole swallows backhoe BY THE CANADIAN PRESS MONTREAL — A section of a downtown commercial street swallowed a backhoe on Monday as city crews were getting ready to repair a leaky water main. The backhoe had started to chip at asphalt near the corner of Ste-Catherine and Guy streets when the ground crumbled beneath it and the heavy machine tumbled in. The driver of the backhoe was not injured but was taken to hospital to be checked out as a precaution, city officials said. Emilie Miskdjian, a spokeswoman for the VilleMarie borough, said the city was alerted to the possible water leak on the weekend. She said preliminary indications were that the leak caused the problem but more inspections needed to be done to find the exact cause. “We think that the water leak was because of the sewer pipe,” she told reporters. “It’s a broken sewer pipe. That’s what we think but we have to do inspections to see what is really the cause.” Montreal police quickly blocked off streets around the sinkhole and rerouted traffic away from the
stretch of street which is dotted with restaurants and stores. Metal fences were erected around the hole, where the backhoe remained at an angle as crews figured out how to eventually remove it safely. Firefighters and gas company workers also milled around the scene, which drew a horde of lunchtime gawkers who snapped pictures of it with their cellphones. Rahman Esmaili, owner of the Sharx pool bar, was instead assessing damage to his basement-level bar where he says water had been leaking in for more than a week. He says the city was warned about the problem but replied there were no reports of low water pressure. “The city completely ignored (it),” he said. “This morning, they decided to come and look at it.” Esmaili said workers hadn’t been there long before the street caved in. He wondered aloud what would have happened if heavy traffic had been passing over the spot at the moment it collapsed. “It’s very disturbing,” he said. Esmaili said he will have to close his business for several days to replace soaked carpeting.
MILLBROOK, Ont. — Members of a Royal Canadian Legion branch in Ontario say they don’t want to press charges against a Métis man who admitted to stealing the Bell of Batoche over 20 years ago, but they still want returned medals which they say disappeared at the same time. “The bell is back where it rightfully belongs,” said Dan Maebrae, who was the sergeant-at-arms at the Millbrook legion when the bell was stolen in 1991. “It belongs to the Métis.” The historic bell was originally looted in 1885 from a church in Batoche, Sask., by troops suppressing the Northwest Rebellion led by Louis Riel. It was brought east to the town of Millbrook and was in the community’s fire hall for decades before ending up at the legion. After the theft in 1991, the bell’s whereabouts remained a mystery until Billyjoe Delaronde, a Métis man from Manitoba, confessed to taking it and presented it to the bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Prince Albert in Batoche last month. Maebrae, who recalls drinking with Delaronde and other Métis men at the Millbrook legion before the theft, said three medals were with the bell. Known as the McCorry medals after Millbrook man and former sergeant Fred McCorry, they had been presented to residents who were soldiers in the campaign to suppress the Northwest Rebellion. Those medals belong in Millbrook, Maebrae said. “They’re part of the legion history. This man was a military man and it’s military history. That’s what the legion is about.” Nobody admits to having the medals and police do not appear to be investigating the 1991 robbery any longer. Mounties in red serge were present when Delaronde presented the bell in Batoche, but a spokesman for RCMP in Saskatchewan said that since the case originated in Ontario, it would be up to police there to decide whether they wanted charges to be laid. The Ontario Provincial Police investigated the original robbery, but charges appear unlikely. “There is no active investigation,” OPP spokesman Craig White said recently.

Birder and photographer Murray MacKay of Ponoka checks a nest box on his land east of Ponoka.
Ponoka’s best bird man HAS NESTING BOXES ON HIS OWN LAND SPECIFICALLY SET ASIDE FOR WILDLIFE BY SUSAN ZIELINSKI ADVOCATE STAFF Murray Mackay is a bluebird’s best friend. Who else would make the time to build, stake, and maintain as many as 40 nesting boxes on 63 acres of his own land specifically set aside for wildlife, as well as 100 nesting boxes dotting Ponoka’s countryside. “At one time I had a trail of 600 through the whole area,” said Mackay, 75, of Ponoka. His boxes attract both mountain bluebirds and tree swallows. Mackay also has a licence to band bluebirds to help track behaviours like migration and longevity. “I had one occasion where I had one male come back to the same box seven years in a row which is really, really rare.” “You’d be lucky to get maybe two return out of 100 that you band.” He said bluebirds were in trouble a few years ago, but
‘IT’S NEVER ENDING. YOU JUST HAVE TO KEEP WORKING FOR WILDLIFE BECAUSE THEY GET THE ROUGH END OF THE STICK ALL THE TIME.’ — MURRAY MACKAY
have rebounded. But bird populations in general have declined over the years. “We don’t have near the birds on our window feeder we used to have 20 some years ago. Ponoka hasn’t grown. It’s not like they’ve been pushed out,” said Mackay who also attracts birds to his house. Mackay, whose wildlife photos regularly appear in the Advocate, is rarely without a camera to take pictures of birds who drop by. Just last week, he spotted some young woodpeckers sitting on a nearby fence waiting for their mother. “The sun was just right,” said Mackay who snapped about a dozen photos. His favourite birds to photograph are raptors, especially
saw-whet owls, that also nest on his land outside town. A retired owner of a Massey Ferguson dealership, Mackay has owned the acreage that has turned into his own private sanctuary for about 30 years. During the winter, he fills bird feeders on the property for the chickadees, nuthatches and woodpeckers. The mostly wooded area, with a small meadow, is a calm oasis that also attracts small critters and bigger wildlife. Mackay regularly visits his acreage and checks on the nesting boxes on scattered around Ponoka County. “The biggest hardship is every year you get some vandalism. Somebody will steal your box. Shooting the boxes up. Some people, they don’t care.”
In 2002, Mackay received the Order of the Bighorn, the highest honour the provincial government bestows on conservationists for helping to preserve land near Centennial Centre for Mental Health and Brain Injury that was slated for housing. He was also recognized for countless volunteer hours enhancing fish and wildlife habitat through the years in the Ponoka area. “It’s never ending. You just have to keep working for wildlife because they get the rough end of the stick all the time.” He likes to remind people about all the natural beauty around them with his photography. “I’ve got a couple of nice letters from people because of my pictures being in the Advocate. It makes you feel good. They enjoy them and that’s why I put them in. I want people to get out and enjoy nature.” szielinski@reddeeradvocate. com
YOUTH SUMMER RESEARCH
Students check out science possibilities BY SUSAN ZIELINSKI ADVOCATE STAFF Three Red Deer students are donning lab coats for their summer jobs as research assistants. Hillary Wilson from Notre Dame High School is spending six weeks with the Heritage Youth Researcher Summer (HYRS) Program at the University of Calgary. Emilee Anderson and Shawna Dawson, both from Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School, are at the University of Alberta for six weeks for the Women in Scholarship, Engineering, Science and Technology (WISEST) Summer Research Program. Both programs introduce students to research studies to help them make career decisions. Wilson is conducting research in the area of knee surgery and osteoarthritis. Anderson is studying a class of drugs used in cancer chemotherapy and Dawson is analyzing songbird vocalizations for the psychology department. “I was interested in fitness and nutrition,” said Wilson, 17, who started her
research on July 4. “I know lots of people who complain about arthritis. It is a very common issue and affects a lot of Canadians. ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) reconstructions are common among athletes.” Her lab work has included examining tissue samples under the microscope. “You image them, take them from the microscope to the computer, and then we do what we call grading. There is a scoring system and you basically analyze the tissue and see how bad the damage is.” She said lab staff give students as real an experience as possible. “I never really considered (research) before but I’m definitely thinking it might be an option,” Wilson said. Dawson, 16, said working in a lab has been awesome. Part of her time was spent isolating notes in songbird calls that will be used in teaching them to learn a task. Another one of her jobs is to feed the research chickadees. She also had the opportunity to visit different
university labs and speak to both university students and graduates which has opened her eyes to postsecondary possibilities. “I’ve known for about a year that I probably want to pursue science in university. But trying choose a particular area has been kind of difficult,” Dawson said. Forty students were chosen to participate in the WISEST program at the U of A, and a total of 49 students are with the HYRS program at the U of A, the U of C and the University of Lethbridge. “A lot of people think they won’t be able to get into the program because so many people apply for it and it’s a high level of competition, but you should definitely take the opportunity. There are so many experiences you get here that you couldn’t get anywhere else,” Wilson said. email@example.com

Airline merger approved EUROPEAN AUTHORITIES CLEAR US AIRWAYS GROUP INC.’S PROPOSED MERGER WITH AMERICAN AIRLINES BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS AMSTERDAM, Netherlands — European authorities have cleared US Airways Group Inc.’s proposed merger with American Airlines’ parent company, AMR Corp. — on the condition that they give up one slot at London’s Heathrow airport and take steps to foster competition on the LondonPhiladelphia route. The merger and restructuring plan, which would create the world’s biggest airline, must still be approved by a U.S. federal judge before AMR can emerge from bankruptcy, with a hearing expected Aug. 15. “This represents one of the final milestones on our path to becoming the new American Airlines,” said AMR CEO Tom Horton. Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Justice is still review-

European approval for the deal has long been expected, but in the U.S. the situation may be more complicated, despite approval for the deal last week by US Airways shareholders.

HSBC profits reap benefits of restructuring, reduced loan losses in the U.S. SHARES FALL ON CONCERNS ABOUT CHINA BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LONDON — HSBC PLC, Europe’s biggest bank by market value, said Monday that its first half profit rose 22 per cent as it reaped the benefits of restructuring measures and reduced loan losses in the United States. Its shares fell, however, on concern about growth in China, a key market. The bank, which gets more than 60 per cent of its income from Asia, said Monday that its net income rose to $10.3 billion in the first half of the year from $8.4 billion in the same period of 2012. Vancouver-based HSBC Bank Canada’s profit dropped 35 per cent to $130 million in the second quarter on lower operating income due to a series of impairment charges and lower values from investments to be sold. The bank said profits attributable to common shareholders was $113 million, down 39 per cent or $71 million from a year ago. The lower profit was mainly due a reduction in fair value of an investment property held for sale, higher loan impairment charges and lower gains on the disposal of availablefor-sale financial investments. HSBC also experienced lower net interest income, partially offset by lower operating expenses. President and CEO Paulo Maia said the bank nonetheless continues to report “a good level of profitability amid a challenging interest rate environment” by building its core businesses,
deepening client relationships and continuing to improve the efficiency of its Canadian operations. “The growth of commercial credit facilities and funds under management in the first half of 2013, in a low growth economy, demonstrates the value our customers place on our ability to connect internationally-minded Canadians to opportunities around the world,” he stated. In the United States, loan impairment charges were down to $1.3 billion, or 29 per cent, compared with the first half of 2012. The decrease reflected improvements in the housing market and lower delinquency levels. The bank sold a $3.7 billion non-real estate loan portfolio. It also announced 11 disposals or closures of non-strategic businesses since the start of the year — efforts that the bank said would “continue to reshape HSBC.” At the same time, the bank said it cut costs by $800 million during the period — taking annual savings to $4.1 billion since the start of 2011, Chief Executive Stuart Gulliver said the bank’s priority is to implement a global standard of conduct and compliance. The focus on ethics comes after the group agreed to pay almost $2 billion last year to settle a money-laundering case involving illicit drug money from Mexico. It also handled assets belonging to Iran and to Libya. The bank has struggled to clear its name and restore its reputation.

NEW YORK — Worldwide shipments of tablet computers slowed down in the second quarter because Apple didn’t release a new model of its trendsetting iPad, research firm IDC said Monday. Shipments totalled 45.1 million units in the AprilJune period, down nearly 10 per cent from the first three months of the year. Still the second-quarter total is up nearly 60 per cent from a year ago, a sign that the market continues to grow. “A new iPad launch always piques consumer interest in the tablet category and traditionally that has helped both Apple and its competitors,” said Tom Mainelli, a research director at IDC. “With no new iPads, the market slowed for many vendors.” Apple normally releases a new iPad in the spring, but it has moved to fall launches to take advantage of the lucrative holiday shopping season. That means people who want iPads may be holding out for a new model. Samsung and other rivals have released new tablet models this spring, but IDC says those launches didn’t get the spillover boost that a new iPad would have provided. Mainelli said he expects weakness to continue in the July-September period, but tablet shipments should pick up again in the holiday quarter, when Apple and others are expected to release new products. Besides a new iPad, Amazon.com Inc. is likely to refresh its Kindle Fire line, while Google Inc. is expected to come out with a new 10-inch Nexus model. Google released a new 7-inch Nexus last week. Apple remains the leading maker of tablets, with 14.6 million shipped in the April-June period. But as disclosed in the company’s earnings report last month, shipments fell 14 per cent from a year ago. IDC says Apple’s market share fell to 32 per cent in the second quarter, compared with 60 per cent in the same period in 2012. Samsung Electronics Co., maker of the Galaxy line of phones and tablets, saw shipments nearly quadruple to 8.1 million in the second quarter. That gave Samsung a market share of 18 per cent, up from 7.6 per cent a year earlier. Mainelli said Samsung “is certainly gearing up to be Apple’s biggest competitor in tablets, but I think it will still be some time before they catch them.” Meanwhile, makers of Android tablets, in general, are benefiting from the introduction of smaller, cheaper tablets with screen sizes of about 7 inches diagonally. Apple didn’t come out with its iPad Mini until the fall. Mainelli said the smaller screens “made it possible to have a decent experience running Android smartphone apps on the tablets. This helped Android overcome the lack of tablet-specific apps in the market.” AsusTek Computer Inc., which makes the Nexus 7 for Google along with its own branded Android tablets, was No. 3 with 2 million tablets. It was followed by Lenovo Group with 1.5 million and Acer Inc. with 1.4 million. Microsoft Corp., maker of the Surface tablets, dropped out of the top five after coming in at No. 5 in the first quarter, according to IDC. Amazon also lost its top-five status. It had been No. 4 in the first quarter.
Canadians travelling without health insurance
Summer is a very popular time for Canadians to travel to other parts of the country, the United States or abroad. A recent study on summer travel by BMO Insurance found that 83 per cent of Canadians plan to take a vacation this summer and spend an average of $3,073 on travel, the most popular destinations being the United States, Europe and Central and South America. However, only half of Canadians who travel purchase medical in-
surance before heading off, potentially leaving themselves and their families financially vulnerable to high costs, should they get sick or have an accident while travelling. “While it’s great news that so many Canadians will be taking advantage of the great weather to hit the road and get some rest and relaxation this summer, it’s a concern that so few will be protecting themselves against the unexpected by purchasing travel medical insurance,” said Julie Barker-Merz,
vice-president and chief operating officer of BMO Insurance. Getting sick while out of the country can be very expensive. The cost of a broken leg in the United States, for example, can cost up to $20,000, while an air ambulance from Florida to Ontario can run up to $15,000. Even within the country, Canadians may not be covered for all required medical care when travelling to another province.

STORIES FROM PAGE A8
INSURANCE: Should check out-of-country coverage According to the Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association, group health insurance through your employer, union or professional association may cover out-of-country hospital and/or medical expenses, but you should check to see what is covered and what is excluded. For example, will your policy cover you for the entire length of your absence from Canada or your home province? If you extend your stay, can your policy be extended? What types of restrictions does your policy have? Does it deny benefits if your emergency arises because of a pre-existing condition and are there exclusion that pertain to specific activities or events, such as sports, war, suicide or substance abuse? Does your policy pay for an emergency return home. If you’re travelling with others, does each person need a separate policy or does one cover all? Are there certain countries or locations not covered and does your policy provide for trip cancellation, baggage loss and other damages? Some policies will not provide coverage for conditions that don’t exist before your departure. This includes conditions for which you have seen a doctor or received other treatment recently. Other policies may provide coverage for these conditions, but on a limited basis. If you currently have a condition that is stable or under control by medication and you are medically fit to travel, check your policy to see if you would be covered if there were an emergency — for example, if you are on anti-hypertension medication and suffer a heart attack, if you have a mental disorder or if you are in the latter stages of pregnancy. When completing the health portion of your travel insurance application form, make sure you list all medication that you take. If you are not completely sure, contact your doctor or your insurance provider for advice on how to proceed. BMO suggests you look for a travel medical policy that includes medical and dental coverage, air ambulance, private duty nurse expenses, and airfare and lodging for a family member to be by your side. As well, be sure you understand who pays. Some insurers pay the doctor directly, while others require the traveller to pay up front and get reimbursed later. And read the fine print. Make sure your policy covers you for all trip activities and is valid for the duration of your trip. “Unless you and your family are covered through other means, it’s critical to make sure you have travel medical insurance because emergencies can happen anytime, anywhere,” said Barker-Merz. “Making sure you have travel medical insurance should be a high priority item on any traveller’s vacation to-do list.” Talbot Boggs is a Toronto-based business communications professional who has worked with national news organizations, magazines and corporations in the finance, retail, manufacturing and other industrial sectors.
HSBC: ‘Global standards’ “Our values are to be dependable, open to different ideas and cultures, and connected to customers, communities, regulators and each other; they form a key part of the annual performance review for everyone who works at HSBC,” Gulliver wrote in his statement. “By implementing global standards we are reinforcing the expectation that our employees will do the right thing, act with courageous integrity and maintain the most effective financial crime controls everywhere that we operate.” One of the more recent consequences of this strategy has been the decision to close the accounts of dozens of foreign missions in London — a move that sent diplomats across the capital scrambling. Foreign missions traditionally deal in large amounts of cash, something which may have raised uncomfortable questions at a bank that has been buffeted by money laundering scandals. The bank declined to comment on “individual customer relationships.”
Metal exchange, Goldman named in class-action suit over aluminum storage THE ASSOCIATED PRESS HONG KONG — The London Metal Exchange and Goldman Sachs are being sued in a U.S. court over alleged anticompetitive and monopolistic behaviour in aluminum storage. The metal exchange will fight the class-action lawsuit, which its management believes is without merit, the LME’s owner, Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Ltd., said in a statement late Sunday. Wall Street banks are facing increased scrutiny of their involvement in businesses that store and transport commodities such as oil and aluminum. The LME and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. are named as co-defendants in the suit alleging “anti-competitive and monopolistic behaviour in the warehousing market in connection with aluminum prices.” The lawsuit was filed Aug. 1 by lead plaintiff Superior Extrusion Inc., a maker of aluminum tubing and beams,

To address those concerns, Goldman said last week that it is taking measures to make more aluminum immediately available to customers at its metal storage business, Metro International Trade Services, which operates under LME regulations. The bank pointed out last week that “the overall delivered price of aluminum is down nearly 40 per cent since its 2006 peak levels.” Hong Kong Exchanges, which operates the southern Chinese city’s stock exchange, last year bought the LME, which approves and

WASHINGTON — Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos is buying The Washington Post and other newspapers for $250 million. The longtime publisher, The Washington Post Co., announced the deal Monday. Bezos is buying the paper as an individual. Amazon.com Inc. is not involved. Washington Post chairman and CEO Donald Graham called Bezos a “uniquely good new owner.” He said the decision was made after years of newspaper industry challenges. The company, which owns the Kaplan education business and several TV stations, will change its name but didn’t say what the new name will be. Bezos said in a statement that he understands the Post’s “critical role” in Washington and said its values won’t change.

JPMorgan Chase & Co. said last week that the possibility of new regulations was a factor behind its decision to consider selling some of its physical commodities business, which includes metals and energy. It has agreed to pay $410 million to settle accusations by U.S. regulators that it manipulated electricity prices.

Teen’s marijuana use upsets family Question: What can we do about our teen’s use of marijuana? When we confronted him, he said that it’s now socially acceptable and on the verge of being legalized. He’s refused to stop, and we’re not sure how to respond. Jim: Sadly, your son is correct in some respects. The social stigma against marijuana is diminishing rapidly, and some states — including my home state of Colorado — have legalized it for even non-medicinal purposes. Nevertheless, marijuana remains off-limits to anyone under 21 in every state, and is still JIM illegal at the federal DALY level. Legalities aside, the fact remains that cannabis is a mind-altering and addictive drug. Your son needs to know that his physical and mental health is being compromised. If you’ve noticed recent changes in his personality, you can strengthen your case by describing these behavioral shifts in specific terms. Once you’ve covered the science, don’t hesitate to draw a line in the sand. Let your son know that, as long as he’s living with you, the weed has to go. The permissive attitudes of society have nothing to do with the standards governing your home. Set firm and consistent boundaries, and enforce them by imposing swift and powerful consequences — for example, the loss of cellphone or driving privileges. If he refuses to cooperate, our counseling team recommends that you seek professional help together, as a family. The most successful treatment programs take a family systems approach that involves intensive evaluation and a series of counseling sessions offered in an environment of community and accountability. Question: How can couples achieve intimacy with a newborn in the house? How can we keep
FOCUS ON FAMILY
the spark going? Dr. Greg Smalley, executive director of Marriage and Family Formation: After the birth of a baby, interest in sex can be very different for each person. Some want to resume intimacy as soon as possible. Others experience a decrease in desire. There can be many reasons for this: postpartum depression, fatigue, preoccupation with the baby, fear of discomfort during intercourse (due to temporary physiological changes following the birth), tension or anxiety about new responsibilities, and hormonal changes. Before you and your spouse resume your sexual relationship, talk with your doctor. Ask specific questions about how long you should wait before intercourse and what you might expect physically. Medical considerations aside, the key to a couple’s sexual relationship after childbirth is not how active their sex life is. Instead, it is tied to their understanding of one another’s needs. Ask each other questions like, “What would make our intimate relationship a ‘10’ to you?” “What do you need from me sexually right now?” It’s important to really listen to how your mate responds to these questions. Don’t diminish his or her responses. Remember, this is what your mate needs from you sexually right now. There is no right or wrong answer. If you receive an answer that is below your expectations, honor your spouse, even though you may not agree. And don’t forget, a wife will respond sexually after she feels emotionally connected to her husband. Make sure you’re focusing on meeting each other’s emotional and relational needs. Talking about your day, praying together, setting relationship goals and having regular date nights will help build your emotional relationship. A positive sexual relationship stems from a positive relationship first. Once your spouse feels like you’re honoring his or her needs, then he or she can better respond to yours, too.

STORY FROM PAGE A10
BELIEF: Does it help to lear? Push further, asking, “Does this belief help me to learn, grow, and succeed?” and, “Who would I be without this belief?” Finally, “What would I do if I weren’t afraid?” We must empty ourselves of old self-limiting beliefs in order to grasp new and healthy, life-affirming concepts. It’s the only path to permanent change. I spent most of one afternoon searching the old farm house for my two boxes. I had found the box of stuff but not the treasure. Eventually, my mother and wife became frustrated and told me to stop. I felt dejected – convinced that the box of treasures had either been tossed out by accident or ransacked by neighbourhood kids. “Is this what you’re looking for?” I looked up to see my wife holding a small cardboard box. I have always marveled at how most women can find things in five minutes that most men will have looked for all afternoon and not found. When I compared the contents of the two boxes, I made an interesting discovery. While the “stuff” box was filled primarily with an assortment of low-value, practical things not worthy of the treasure classification, there were a few things that I would now (as an adult) consider truly valuable. In the treasure box I found the coins and cars and even a note from a teacher complimenting me on a short story I had written — treasure in the eyes of a small boy. There were other items, however, that left me pondering why they had been considered worthy of inclusion. It struck me that as we grow older and have more life experiences to draw upon, our concept of what is of value changes. Again, reassessment is necessary. “The world we see that seems so insane is the result of a belief system that is not working.” T hese words were written by American philosopher and psychologist William James, who went on to say, “To perceive the world differently, we must be willing to change our belief system, let the past slip away, expand our sense of now and dissolve the fear in our minds.” We had little choice as to what initially went into our belief system. Choose now to empty yourself out and open yourself up to what is true and beneficial to you. Murray M. Fuhrer – The Self-Esteem Guy www.theselfesteemguy.com

When two police officers tore little Chico from the arms of Elizete Carmona, they said it was for his own good. After all, 71-year-old women aren’t meant to live with endangered tufted capuchin monkeys. But the case has upset many in Brazil, where thousands of people have signed an online petition calling on Sao Paulo state environmental officials to return Chico to the only home he’s known for the past 37 years. It’s illegal to keep wild animals as pets in Brazil, especially those classified as endangered on the International Union for the Conservation of Nature’s Red List of threatened species, as the tufted capuchin monkey has been. But the Carmona family contends Chico is completely domesticated and might not survive the stress of separation. When the officers came to their house in the city of San Carlos on Saturday, Chico grabbed onto Carmona and hugged her tight, one of the woman’s sons, Everaldo Furlan, told the Globo television network. Carmona said she was devastated when he was pulled away. “I don’t know if I will be able to bear it,” she told Globo. “For me, I’ve lost a son. They’ve taken my son away.” Multiple calls to Sao Paulo’s environmental police went unanswered on Monday and officials at the Sao Carlos City Hall said they were unable to comment on the case. The Carmonas adopted Chico in 1976, decades before a 1998 law that banned the acquisition and possession of wild animals. Chico was brought from central Brazil by a truck driver, who gave it away after the monkey bit one of his children. “The father wanted to kill the monkey. His wife intervened and because she liked me, she ended up giving him to me,” Carmona told Globo earlier this year. “I started taking care of him. He never once bit me.” The cat-sized monkey, with expressive, honeycolored eyes, golden fur and a black Mohawk atop his head, liked to spend most of his waking hours outside in the yard he shared with a pet cat and chicken, relaxing beneath a shady tree or atop a little plywood monkey house.

MLB throws book at A-Rod BANNED THROUGH 2014, OTHERS GONE FOR 50 GAMES JOHHNY MANZIEL
MANZIEL WATCHED Johnny Football is practicing with Texas A&M. Whether he starts the season opener is another question. Coach Kevin Sumlin on Monday said he would not speculate when asked if Johnny Manziel will be his starter on Aug. 31 against Rice following an ESPN report that the NCAA is investigating whether the Heisman Trophy winner was paid for signing hundreds of autographs last January. If Manziel was paid for his autograph on memorabilia, it could potentially violate NCAA amateurism rules and put his eligibility in question a year after his jaw-dropping performance on the field made him the first freshman to win the Heisman as college football’s top player. For now, Manziel will lead the Aggies. But his coach is clearly thinking of backups, too. “He’ll get as many reps as he was going to get yesterday,” Sumlin said of Manziel, before adding: “We’ve got to develop a backup quarterback no matter what.” The report is just the latest in a string of off-the-field distractions caused by Manziel. He’s made headlines for tweeting that he “can’t wait to leave College Station,” despite having three years of eligibility remaining, he allegedly overslept at a football camp run by the Manning family and was supposedly kicked out of a University of Texas fraternity party in the past couple of months. — The Associated Press
BY RONALD BLUM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK — Defiant till the end, Alex Rodriguez is intent on evading baseball’s most sweeping punishment since the Black Sox scandal. Rodriguez was suspended through 2014 and All-Stars Nelson Cruz, Jhonny Peralta and Everth Cabrera were banned 50 games apiece Monday when Major League Baseball disciplined 13 players for their relationship to Biogenesis of America, a Florida anti-aging clinic accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs. The harshest penalty was reserved for Rodriguez, the New York Yankees slugger, a three-time Most Valuable Player and baseball’s highest-paid star. He said he will appeal his suspension, which covers 211 games, by Thursday’s

And since arbitrator Fredric Horowitz isn’t expected to rule until November or December at the earliest, Rodriguez was free to make his season debut Monday night and play the rest of this year.
Sidelined since hip surgery in January, Rodriguez rejoined the Yankees five hours after the suspension in a series opener at the Chicago White Sox, playing third base and batting fourth. Booed loudly when he walked to the plate, Rodriguez blooped a single to left field in the second inning and was stranded on third base. “The last seven months has been a nightmare, has been probably the worst time of my life for sure,” Rodriguez said. The other 12 players agreed to their 50-game penalties, giving them a chance to return for the playoffs. Ryan Braun’s 65-game suspension last month and previous penalties bring to 18 the total number of players sanctioned for their connection with Biogenesis. At the centre of it all was Rodriguez, once the greatest player of his time, reduced Monday night to saying that he was humbled, at 38, just to “have the opportunity to put on this uniform again.”

Lulay shines as Lions claw past Bombers BY THE CANADIAN PRESS
B.C. 27 Winnipeg 20 VANCOUVER — Travis Lulay’s touchdown-passing drought did not last long. One game, to be exact. Lulay passed for three touchdowns as the B.C. Lions beat the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 27-20 in CFL action Monday. The Lions improved to 4-2 while the Bombers (1-5) suffered their fourth consecutive loss. The Lions quarterback got his team back in the end zone after it was held without a TD for the time since 2005 — a span of 131 games — in a loss to Toronto last week. He rebounded strongly six days after seeing a 36-game touchdown-passing streak come to an end. “It feels great to get a win,” said Lulay. “To come home and bounce back was important for us. As a group, any time you’re coming off a tough loss, (and) you’re coming home, you need to find a way to win those games, because it’s a long season. “Mentally, there are some ebbs and flows. To go into the bye week with a win, to overcome the red-zone demons that we’ve been talking about all week, and find a way to put some sevens on the board this week, those are important things for us.” The Lions extended their
red-zone woes early as they failed to score for the fifth straight time after advancing within their opponent’s 10-yard line, dating back to last week. But the Lions quarterback, who was hurried much of the game, still managed to hit paydirt. “I don’t care how we score the touchdowns as long as we score the touchdowns,” said Lulay. “Last week was the first time in a long time that this offence hasn’t scored an offensive touchdown. It’s important to us. We take pride in being better than we were a week ago.” Lulay’s third touchdown pass of the game, to Courtney Taylor with just over six minutes left in the game, clinched the win for B.C. as it staked the Lions to an insurmountable 26-17 lead. The scoring drive was aided by Winnipeg coach Tim Burke’s decision to have punter Mike Renaud concede a safety with 10:36 left in the game, giving the Lions a 19-17 lead and putting B.C. in good field position after an ensuing kick-off. Shawn Gore and Korey Taylor also scored touchdowns for the Lions. Paul McCallum produced B.C.’s other points on a field goal and single off a miss. Lulay completed 28 of 39 passes for 268 yards. Chad Simpson and quarter-

Justin Palardy provided a field goal and a single off a missed field goal, while Renaud’s two singles accounted for the Bombers’ other points. While Lulay was excelling on offence, Lions middle linebacker Solomon Elimimian stood out on defence. Elimimian forced a fumble on the opening kickoff that led to an early field goal. His second-quarter interception set up Williams’ touchdown, which was the first of the rookie’s CFL career, staking the Lions to a 17-9 advantage and enabling them to lead 17-16 at half-time.
“We have to understand that people really get themselves up to play us,” said Elimimian, referring to Winnipeg’s struggles. “It was a good overall win. Sometimes, wins like this are better than blowouts.” Elimimian, selected by his team as its best special teams and defensive player, said he felt good about the fumble and interception, because he wanted to make a statement for himself and show that the Lions have the best linebacking corps in the league. He and his defensive mates limited the Bombers to just 207 yards in net offence.

Flames’ pick Monahan scores twice in scrimmage BY THE CANADIAN PRESS BROSSARD, Que. — It was one thing for Sean Monahan to star in an intra-squad game, but now the interesting part of the Canadian junior hockey team’s summer camp is about to begin. Monahan had a goal in regulation time and the game-winner in a shootout to lead his Red team over the Whites 3-2 in a controlled scrimmage on Monday at the Centre Sportif Bell. The real chance for players to show team management they deserve a spot on the world junior championship team will come this week when Canada plays exhibition games against Finland, Sweden and the United States in Lake Placid, N.Y. “What’s so neat about this process is we get to play three games against teams that we’re going to be playing against in the tournament,” said coach Brent Sutter. “It’s an evaluation for those teams too. “We’ll have a better idea of where we’re at after those three games, and then we’ll know what our needs and wants are and start forming a team, to some degree.” The camp is the first step toward selecting a team to play at the world juniors Dec. 26 to Jan. 5 in Malmo, Sweden. A lot will depend on how players perform in the first half of the regular season with their club teams, but the summer development camp is a chance to leave an impression. “It’s important when you leave here to have a feel for what your core group might be,” said Sutter. “The unknown is

Among them is Monahan, who was picked sixth overall in the draft by the Calgary Flames. General manager Jay Feaster,
whose team is thin down the middle, has said the six-foottwo centre will be given a good chance to make the NHL club. “That’s my goal, so I’m going to do whatever I can, but it’s not up to me,” said Monahan. The Ottawa 67s star was among those who stood out in the scrimmage along with linemates Bo Horvat of the London Knights and Curtis Lazar of the Edmonton Oil Kings. Horvat slid a nifty pass across the crease to Monahan, who waited a split second and then roofed a shot over Saginaw goalie Jake Paterson for the opening goal. Horvat gave the credit to Monahan.
“I saw him driving to the net and I just tried to get it over as quickly as I could, and put a little sauce on it to get it over the stick,” said Horvat, picked ninth overall by the Vancouver Canucks. “He made a great delay, great shot and put it up in the top corner.” The game was divided into two, 30-minute halves, and another Flames’ first-rounder, Emile Poirier of the Gatineau Olympiques, gave the Reds a two-goal lead early in the second half from a scramble in front of Montreal Canadiens’ pick Zachary Fucale. But then 16-year-old Connor McDavid went to work for the Whites. First, the Erie Otters’ centre scored on a penalty shot after he was slashed. Then he picked up an assist as Guelph defenseman Matt Finn tied the game with a blast from the high slot. “He’s a very good hockey player,” Horvat said of McDavid, the favourite to go first overall in the 2015 draft. “I’m rooming with him here in Montreal and he’s a great kid on and off the ice. “He has tremendous skill around the net. His quick thinking, quick hands and his ability to make plays is unbelievable for his age.” McDavid is widely considered the best prospect since Sidney Crosby, and Sutter said this week he will be given every chance to become one of the rare 16-year-olds to make the Canadian world junior team, following the likes of Crosby, Eric Lindros and Wayne Gretzky.

“The main thing is we won that first game and Josh did a great job going the distance, which leaves us with several fresh arms for tomorrow.” The second game goes tonight in Spruce Grove with the third, if necessary, Friday at 7:30p.m. at Great Chief Park. Matt Davis will likely start tonight with Joel Peterman and Sean Maquire available for relief. Brant Stickel won’t be available as he rests a sore arm. Jaret Chatwood had a pair of singles, a walk and was hit once while Curtis Mazurkewich had a single and a double and Shayne Court a single, a walk and was also hit once. Bailey was hit as well and lined a tworun single. Defensively the Riggers were solid with Jaret Chatwood making a great diving catch at third and Mark Fay coming in and making a diving grab in centre field. Both catches were off Brandon Strocki. Brad Micheleski had two hits for the White Sox. The Fort Saskatchewan Athletics and St. Albert Tigers are in the other semifinal. The final will be a best-of-five affair. email@example.com

Runners finish 13th GRANDE CACHE — A pair of Red Deer runners finished the 13th annual 126-kilometre Great Canadian Death Race. Rick Gosselin and Chris Morrison of Red Deer, along with former Red Deer Rebel and Red Deer native Jonathan Zukiwsky, were among the 126 athletes, who completed the run by themselves under the 24 hours allotment. Some 396 athletes started the race.
had been acquitted of criminal charges. As for the modern-day All-Stars, Cruz, an outfielder, leads Texas in RBIs and Peralta has been a top hitter and shortstop for Detroit, a pair of teams in the midst of pennant races. They will be eligible to return for the post-season. Others agreeing to 50-game bans included Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli and outfielder Fernando Martinez; Philadelphia pitcher Antonio Bastardo; Seattle catcher Jesus Montero; New York Mets infielder Jordany Valdespin and outfielder Cesar Puello; Houston pitcher Sergio Escalona; and free agent pitchers Fautino De Los Santos and Jordan Norberto. While the players’ association has fought many drug penalties in the past three decades, attitudes of its membership have shifted sharply and union staff encouraged settlements in the Biogenesis probe. “The accepted suspensions announced today are consistent with the punishments set forth in the Joint Drug Agreement, and were arrived at only after hours of intense negotiations between the bargaining parties, the players and their representatives,” union head Michael Weiner said. “For the player appealing, Alex Rodriguez, we agree with his decision to fight his suspension. We believe that the commissioner has not acted appropriately ... The union, consistent with its history, will defend his rights vigorously.” Fighting a brain tumour diagnosed a year ago, Weiner spoke in a raspy voice during a conference call and said the union’s executive board will consider stiffer drug penalties when players meet in December. But the union will fight Rodriguez’s discipline. “We’ve never had a 200-plus (game) penalty for a player who may have used drugs,” he said. “And among other things, I just think that’s way out of line.”
He added if he didn’t fight for his career, no one else would. A-Rod’s drug penalty was for “his use and possession of numerous forms of prohibited performance-enhancing substances, including testosterone and human growth hormone over the course of multiple years,” MLB said. His punishment under the labour contract was “for attempting to cover up his violations of the program by engaging in a course of conduct intended to obstruct and frustrate the office of the commissioner’s investigation.” In Chicago, Rodriguez wouldn’t deny using PEDs, saying “when the time is right, there will be an opportunity to do all of that. I don’t think that time is right now.” He added: “It’s been the toughest fight of my life. By any means, am I out of the woods? This is probably just phase two just starting. It’s not going to get easier. It’s probably going to get harder.” Rodriguez admitted four years ago that he used PEDs while with Texas from 2001-03 but has repeatedly denied using them since. His penalty was more than double the previous high for a PED suspension, a 100-game ban given last year to San Francisco pitcher Guillermo Mota for a second offence. “What we’ve always fought for was for the process, and I think we have that,” Rodriguez said. “At some point we’ll sit in front of an arbiter and give our case.” Yankees manager Joe Girardi, minutes after losing captain Derek Jeter for the third time this year, was ready to welcome A-Rod back. “I’m not here to judge people. That’s not my job,” Girardi said. “He’s a player as long as he’s in our clubhouse.” Girardi called the suspensions “another black eye for us, but we’re trying to clean this game up.” The suspensions are thought to be the most at once for off-field conduct since 1921, when Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis banned In office bleaching in 60 minutes eight White Sox players for life for throwing the 1919 World Series Call us today! against Cincinnati: Shoeless Joe Jackson, Eddie Cicotte, Happy Felsh, Chick Gandil, Fred McMullen, Charles “Swede” Risberg, Buck Weaver and Claude “Lefty” Williams.

that can come in if you need them.” Edwards is from Drayton Valley and attended college in Colby College in Kansas before playing with the University of Buffalo. Last season he played in the Czech Republic. “That was a great experience . . . it’s certainly different than playing in Canada,” he said. “But it as awesome.” The Riggers didn’t swing the bats with authority, but still managed to get a pair of runs in the third on four hits. “That helped, it gives me a little breathing room and kept me going,” said Edwards, who gave up a run in the fourth and two in the eighth. The Riggers also added three runs in the fifth against starter Myles Ethier, who was replaced by Tyler Ulrich with one on and none out in the seventh. Ethier allowed nine hits and also hit six batters. “Overall we didn’t have real good at bats,” said Bailey. “But we seem to have problems with him. We seem to do a good job of getting ourselves out. I think we were a little overanxious as we haven’t played in a week and we wanted to get the playoffs started.

Riggers 5 White Sox 3 Josh Edwards gave the Red Deer Riggers exactly what they needed as they opened the best-ofthree Sunburst League and provincial senior AAA baseball semifinal series against the Parkland White Sox. Edwards tossed a complete game eight hitter, leading the Riggers to a 5-3 victory in a fastpaced two-hour game Monday at Great Chief Park. “I was able to keep it going and the I felt good the last few innings,” said Edwards, who finished with 120 pitches. He didn’t walk a batter, hit one and struck out nine. “He battled and is hard to hit when he’s consistently around the zone,” said Riggers manager Curtis Bailey. “His cutter is tough.” Edwards is in his first season with the Riggers, after playing for the Red Deer Stags in the past. “I like pitching for Red Deer,” he said. “I know some of the guys and when a couple of guys moved from the Stags (when they folded) I was glad to jump ship and move over.” Although Edwards lives in Edmonton he’s been able to throw a lot in the last month for the Riggers. “I’ve been pitching a lot and it’s nice,” he said. “And the nice thing is we have a lot of depth this year and there’s five or six guys on the bench
Always a bridesmaid, never a bride . . . Dan Soley shed that label Monday at the Red Deer Golf and Country Club. Five times a runnerup in the Central Alberta Amateur, Soley finally broke through and nailed down the elusive title with a final-round score of one-over 73. Soley finished with a 54-hole score of 223 that included earlier rounds of 75-75, four strokes better than Tom McKinlay Jr. of Lacombe, who came in with a 74 and finished at 227. McKinlay fired an opening-round 79 and carded a 74 Sunday. “I had a one-shot lead going into the final round today, which is not a safe place to be, but then again who knows?” said Soley, a member of the host club. “The golf course was tough today, the greens were very fast. But it was good.” The 2013 champion was satisfied with his overall play during the three rounds, but suggested it could have been better. “I think it could have been a lot better,” he said. “For example, I was five-over on the ninth hole for the weekend, with two double bogeys and a bogey. “At the same time I made some putts I probably shouldn’t have made, but also made some bogeys that shouldn’t have happened. So I guess it all evens out.” Soley, as he stated, was clinging to a singleshot margin at the first tee of the final round. He posted a bogey at No. 9, but recorded birdies at the 10th and 12th holes to take charge. “I was pretty steady from there,” he said. “I was in a bit of trouble at the 17th hole, but I was able to scramble to within four feet and made my par putt.” Soley recently lost the RDG&CC club champion-

Sprint Car driver dies day after weekend crash BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. — Veteran Sprint Car driver Kramer Williamson died from injuries suffered during a qualifying race at Lincoln Speedway in central Pennsylvania, according to race organizers and the coroner’s office. Williamson, 63, of Palmyra, was pronounced dead at York Hospital at about 1:15 p.m. Sunday, the York County coroner’s office said. He had suffered serious injuries in a crash that occurred Saturday night during the United Racing Company 358/360 Sprint Car Challenge. Investigators said Williamson’s pink No. 73 car was on the fourth lap of a 10-lap qualifying round when it climbed onto another car and crashed into a retaining wall on the second turn, climbing the fence before returning to the track and flipping over several times. He was extricated from the car and flown to the hospital, where he underwent surgery. United Racing Company coowner John Zimmerman said the team is mourning the loss
of a popular and accomplished driver. “URC lost the most popular driver and accomplished driver in our storied history,” Zimmerman said in a statement. “We are so saddened by the loss of an unforgettable member of our URC Family.” Williamson was inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in 2008 and had been racing for more than 40 years. He shared the 1971 rookie of the year title at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg. The last driver fatality at Lincoln was in 1975. In June, NASCAR driver Jason Leffler died from injuries suffered in a Sprint Car crash at Bridgeport Speedway in Swedesboro, N.J. About two weeks before Leffler’s death, Josh Burton died of injuries sustained in a crash at Bloomington Speedway in Indiana. In late May, at a dirt track in Nevada, two drivers were killed in a race. And in March in California, two people were killed when a car careened off a dirt track and crashed on pit road.

Rosa’s pinch-hit single lifts Jays to 3-1 win over Mariners BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Toronto 3 Seattle 1 SEATTLE — Mark DeRosa’s pinch-hit, two-run single in the eighth inning gave the Toronto Blue Jays and R.A. Dickey a 3-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Monday night. Dickey (9-11) went 7 2-3 innings, allowing one run on eight hits. The knuckleballer struck out five and walked two to earn his first win since July 1. Casey Janssen worked the ninth for his 20th save in 22 opportunities. Hisashi Iwakuma (10-5), who pitched 7 1-3 innings, took the loss. He allowed two runs on four hits, striking out two and walked a season-high three. Justin Smoak hit his 11th home run in the seventh to give the Mariners a 1-0 lead at the time. Since July 1, Smoak is batting .327 with 16 runs, eight doubles, five homers and 13 RBI. After Smoak’s home run, the Jays responded with their three-run eighth-inning rally. Brett Lawrie opened with a triple into the right-centre gap. With one out, Jose Reyes lined a RBI single to centre, ending Iwakuma’s outing. Yoervis Medina then complicated the situation for the Mariners, giving up a single to Jose Bautista. Both runners advanced on Medina’s wild pitch. Edward Encarnacion walked to load the bases. Oliver Perez entered as did DeRosa, who lined his go-ahead single to left on an 0-2 pitch. DeRosa is 5-of-14 as a pinch hitter this season with six RBI. The Mariners put together a rally in the third. Humberto Quintero opened with a ground-rule double that bounced over the left-field wall. With one out, Kyle Seager singled to right, with Quintero holding at third. Kendrys Morales then hit a two-hopper to third baseman Lowrie, who dived to his left to stop it. From his knees, he started a 5-4-3 double play to end the threat. The Blue Jays walked into a Iwakuma-induced rally in the fourth. With two outs, Iwakuma issued a base on balls to Bautista. Iwakuma is third in the league with the fewest walks per inning at 1.44. He then walked Encarnacion, the first time he has walked two batters in an inning this season. He then induced Adam Lind to bounce out to second. The Mariners have had 51 of their 112 games decided by two runs over fewer. NOTES: Dustin Ackley started at his old position, second base. He had been the team’s regular at that spot but a batting slump and Nick Franklin’s emergence pushed him to the outfield. “They always told me to be ready, just in case. I see why now,” Ackley said. Acting manager Robby Thompson said, “I don’t hesitate for a minute to put him out there.” . manager Eric Wedge, who suffered a mild stroke July 22 and has missed 13 games, will miss more. There was hope that he could rejoin the team by this homestand but as Thompson said, “he’s doing well.”

Woods parlays big lead into victory BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
AKRON, Ohio — They say par is a good score in a major. If that’s true next week at the PGA Championship, then Tiger Woods has already done his share of preparation. Woods played safe and smart with a big lead, parring 16 holes in an even-par 70 Sunday to coast to a seven-shot victory at the Bridgestone Invitational for his eighth win at the event — matching the PGA Tour record he already shared for victories in a single tournament. “As blustery as it was, it was going to be really hard for someone to shoot 62 or 63,” Woods said. “If I didn’t give any shots away and played my game and shot even par or better, I’d force these guys to go and shoot something super low on a golf course that wasn’t going to give it up under these conditions.” As he walked to the scorer’s trailer to finalize his score, he scooped up 4-year-old son Charlie, who hugged him tightly as his father strode past the large gallery wildly cheering his landslide victory. “This is the first win he’s ever been at,” Woods said. “That’s what makes it special for both of us.” Daughter Sam was on hand when Woods, won the U.S. Open in 2008, before his personal life imploded. Now Charlie will have some memories of dad in the winner’s circle. “They always say, Daddy, when are you going to win the tournament?’ It was a few years there, or a couple years, I hadn’t won anything,” Woods said, smiling. “‘Are you leading or not? That’s a stock question. ‘Not leading.’ ‘Well, are you going to start leading?’ ‘Well, I’m trying.”’ After a second-round 61 in which he flirted with 59, Woods ended up at 15-under 265 to easily beat defending champ Keegan Bradley and Henrik Stenson. Bradley, a huge fan of Tiger’s when he was a youngster, was asked if he liked to see Woods dominate like he did a decade or so ago. “When I was younger, I did,” Bradley said. “You know, I hate to sit here and go on and on about how good he is, but he is. It’s difficult because I really want to get up there and contend with him. But he’s just ... this week he’s playing really well.” Woods’ mastery at Firestone Country Club allowed him to again match Sam Snead’s PGA Tour
record for wins in an event. Snead won the Greater Greensboro Open eight times. Earlier this year, Woods won at Bay Hill for the eighth time. As if he weren’t already the favourite next week in the PGA Championship at Oak Hill, the lopsided victory reinforced it. No one ever got within six shots all day of the world’s No. 1. When he had a good shot at a pin, he took it. Otherwise, he took few, if any, risks. He birdied the 10th hole, then offset that with a three-putt bogey at the 14th hole. But by then most of the field was thinking about catching flights to Rochester instead of catching Woods. Bradley, who won a year ago when Jim Furyk double-bogeyed the 72nd hole, shot a 67 to get to 8 under along with Stenson, who had a 70 while playing with Woods. “He kind of punctured this tournament on Friday,” Stenson said. “He did what he needed to do today.” Tied for fourth were Cleveland-born Jason Dufner (71), Miguel Angel Jimenez (69) and Zach Johnson (67) at 6 under. Bill Haas and Chris Wood each shot a 71 and were at 5 under, with Martin Kaymer, who matched the day’s best round with a 66, at 4 under along with Furyk, Richard Sterne and Luke Donald. For those betting Woods won’t win next week at Oak Hill, keep in mind that he has already won both the Bridgestone and the PGA Championship in the same year three times in his career (2000, 2006, 2007). Still, the odds do not favour him coming right back with another win. In the 19 times in which he has won his last start before a major, he’s only followed up with a win four times: 2000 U.S. Open (after winning The Memorial), 2001 Masters (Players), 2006 PGA (Buick) and 2007 PGA (Bridgestone). The victory was Woods’ 79th on the PGA Tour, drawing him within three of Snead’s record 82 triumphs. “The total body of work is pretty good,” Woods said. “One of the things I’m proud of, obviously, is how many times I’ve won, plus won World Golf Championships and how many years I’ve won five or more tournaments in a season. What is it, like eight or nine

That’s not bad, either.” Lest anyone think he’ll have difficulty surpassing Snead’s total, consider that Woods is over 10 years younger (he’s 37 ½) than Snead was when he won his 82nd and final event, the 1965 Greater Greensboro.
Lewis wins at St. Andrews with another big week BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
“It all happened so fast at the end. You’re afraid for every shot, and all of a sudden you make a couple of birdies and it’s over.” On the par-4 17th, the famous Road Hole, Lewis drilled a 5-iron that tumbled onto the green and settled 3 feet below the cup for a birdie to reach 7-under and give her a share of the lead when Choi three-putted the 14th hole from about 80 feet. Walking off the green, Lewis said she told her caddie, “One more.” A driver left her some 40 yards short of the green, and the Texan used a putter to whack the next shot through the Valley of Sin about 25 feet past the hole. She made that for another birdie to post a score at 8-under 280 and see if anyone could catch her. Choi, who won the U.S. Women’s Open last year, was trying to salvage pars to give her a reasonable shot at birdie on the final hole. It all came undone on the 17th.
Coyotes staying in the desert After years of wondering in the desert, the Phoenix Coyotes’ ownership saga appears to be over. An arena lease out clause could bring into question where they’re playing five years from now, but on Monday the NHL finalized the sale of the Coyotes to the IceArizona group led by Renaissance Sports & Entertainment’s George Gosbee and Anthony LeBlanc. Approval of the US$170-million sale came from the board of governors, which ended the league’s ownership of the beleaguered franchise. “This was an incredibly complicated deal that didn’t get wrapped up quite literally until 8 o’clock this morning after pretty much a full weekend of working on it going through the night,” LeBlanc said on a conference call. “No rest for the weary, as they say, and we’re jumping right in now.” LeBlanc, Gosbee and nine other owners - the vast majority of whom are Canadian businessmen with connections to Arizona — are jumping in to a long process that includes adding staff on the business side and trying to sell tickets to
12 years is they’ve never had that combination that I think you need to be successful in the majority of sports markets,” LeBlanc said. “That is strong, stable ownership combined with at least the understanding that you have the potential of your franchise winning.” The Coyotes missed the playoffs during the lockout-shortened 2013 season but made it the three previous years under coach Dave Tippett. Before bankruptcy, the team most recently made the playoffs in 2001-02. LeBlanc had tried to

purchase the team before as part of IceEdge. He teamed up with Gosbee last year, bringing in Daryl Jones, Avik Dey and others before securing NHL approval and financing. “I think it’s every Canadian boy’s dream to own a hockey team,” Gosbee said. “I’ve always wanted to. But it had to be the right deal. When I started talking with Anthony and Daryl over the years, I think the right deal was in the making here in January. I wanted to own the team because I thought, at the end of the day, it’s a sound investment.”

Choi’s hybrid from the fairway was too strong and settled in a clump of rough, just inches from going down the slope onto the road. She chipped to 6 feet, but pulled the par putt. When she failed to holed out from the fairway, Lewis had the title. Inbee Park’s bid to become the first pro golfer to win four straight majors in one season ended early — very early. Park returned to the Old Course first thing in the morning to resume the third round, which was suspended Saturday because of 40 mph gusts. In calm conditions, Park couldn’t cut into a large deficit and shot 74 to fall nine shots behind. Then, she began the final round by four-putting for double bogey. Park closed with rounds of 74-78 and finished 14 shots behind. “I’ve done something amazing this season,” Park said. “I won three straight majors. I don’t know if I can do that again.”

Stacy Lewis of the US poses with the trophy after winning the Women’s British Open golf championship on the Old Course at St Andrews, Scotland, Sunday.
ST. ANDREWS — Stacy Lewis had another big week at St. Andrews and left with an even bigger prize — a major championship at the home of golf. Lewis finished a marathon Sunday with exquisite birdies on the last two holes of the Old Course to close with an even-par 72 and win the Women’s British Open by two shots. It was her second major on the LPGA Tour, ending a record streak of 10 straight majors won by Asian players. The last time the 28-year-old Lewis was at St. Andrews was in 2008 for the Curtis Cup, and she went 5-0 to lead the Americans to victory. This was even sweeter, and it required no less than her best golf in conditions so blustery that Lewis was the only player at par or better in the last 21 groups. Three shots behind on the back nine, Na Yeon Choi gave her a chance with consecutive bogeys, and Lewis took it from there. “It’s unbelievable,” Lewis said.

50 AND OVER The Red Deer Gary Moe Volkswagen Legends fell 5-4 to the Spruce Grove Eagles in a playoff game of the Canadian 50 and over baseball championship Sunday at Edmonton. The Legends had the go-ahead run in scoring position in the ninth inning, but failed to come through and gave up the winning run in the bottom of the frame. After posting a pair of wins in their opening round-robin games Friday, the Legends hammered the Slave Lake Cats 14-4 Saturday with Fred Fernandes, Kevin Hankins and Lyle Lorenz sharing pitching duties. Fernandes, Brian Laughlin and Terry Tweedy then shared mound duties for the Red Deer squad in a 4-3 loss to the Spring Lake
BY DANNY RODE ADVOCATE STAFF The provincial peewee AAA baseball championships didn’t finish the way the Red Deer Dairy Queen Braves would have liked, but head coach Kelly Jones was still proud of his troops. “It would have been nice to have won and went to the Western Canadians, but unfortunately it wasn’t in the cards,” he said, after the Braves were eliminated from the playoffs Saturday. “But I’m proud of the kids and the job they did for us.” The Braves put themselves in playoff contention with a 9-7 win over the Calgary Cubs Saturday morning, but were eliminated with a 14-6 loss to the St. Albert Cardinals in the evening. The Braves can look back at a 7-6 loss to the Edmonton Cardinals Friday as a game they needed to win. “A slow start to that game cost us,” said Jones. “We win that game and it’s a different story.” As it turned out the Braves finished at 1-2 with Calgary sitting 0-3, Edmonton 2-1 and St. Albert 3-0. The top two teams from each pool advanced to the semifinals. “Overall the kids worked hard, but our bats fell asleep this weekend,” added Jones. “We were never able to string together rallies. We’d scored one or two runs and then come up short. That’s not good, especially against a team like St. Albert. They came out hitting the ball and once we settled down we were fine, but it was too late. “Plus they played well defensively and made a couple of big outs when it could have made a difference. But they made them and put us back on defence.” Adam Junck started on the mound against St. Albert, allowing seven runs over four innings on 10 hits. Zach Baker came on and gave up six runs over two innings with Ty Moline going the final inning. Rylan Eberle had a pair of RBIs for the Braves while Baker and Moline had two hits each. Cooper Jones started against Calgary and went 5 2/3 innings and Brett Porter going the final 1 1/3 innings.

MacGregor Manyluk of the Red Deer Servus Credit Union Braves slides safely into second base in front of St. Albert Cardinals infielders Rhys Mazur and David Pratt during a peewee AAA baseball provincial championship game Saturday at Great Chief Park. The Cardinals won the game 14-6. Moline had a pair of singles and a double while Porter added three hits and Baker and Eberle two each. Overall Jones felt the pitching was fine. “Overall we came together as a team this season and this weekend I thought we let our pitchers down a bit on defence and our hitting wasn’t there.” The Sherwood Park A’s won the title with a 9-6 win over St. Albert in the final. The A’s beat Edmonton 12-5 in the semifinal while St. Albert came from behind to down Fort McMurray 10-8. The A’s were 3-0 in their pool while Fort
McMurray, East Central and Spruce Grove were all 1-2. Spruce Grove will host the Western Canadian finals with both Sherwood Park and St. Albert also playing. There’s a good chance several members of the Braves will be added to teams for the Westerns. Two members of the Braves — Cooper Jones and Hunter Leslie — will compete for Team, Canada at the Cal Ripken World Series, beginning this weekend in Maryland. firstname.lastname@example.org
Servus Braves roll to provincial title BY DANNY RODE ADVOCATE STAFF
BANTAM AAA CHAMPIONSHIP
Once the Red Deer Servus Credit Union Braves got on a roll they were impossible to stop. The Braves went into the final of the provincial bantam AAA tier II baseball championships Sunday afternoon at Great Chief Park needing to defeat the Okotoks Dawgs Red twice to win the title. They jumped on the Dawgs for 11 runs in the first three innings of the first game and then never looked back as they won 11-0 and 9-3 to capture the provincial crown.
“We told the kids going into last night’s game against them we needed to win two of three and we convinced them it didn’t matter what order,” said Braves head coach Dwayne Lalor. The Braves lost their final round-robin game to the Dawgs 5-4 Saturday to leave Okotoks with a 3-0 record while Red Deer was 2-1. “The thing is we got some momentum in the first game when we scored early and went on to shut them out and that carried on,” said Lalor. “We only allowed them to
score in one of 12 innings, which was real solid.” The Braves got outstanding pitching from Ethan Ropcean, who tossed a two-hitter over five innings in the opening game, and Carter O’Donnell, who went the distance in the nightcap. Ropcean also walked a pair and struck out five while O’Donnell gave up six hits while walking three and fanning six. “Our pitching was great and our defence was real solid,” said Lalor. “We turned a couple of double plays and the outfielders ran down some balls.

Help from ‘Vegas nearly nabs title BY GREG MEACHEM ADVOCATE SPORTS EDITOR After friend Don Seibel had made the trek to Las Vegas on numerous occasions, Mary Lynn Weber thought it was only right that she return the favour. Weber, from Las Vegas, teamed up with Seibel during the Play Tennis 3.0/4.0/5.0 provincials at the Red Deer Tennis Club during the weekend and nearly took top honours in the 4.0 mixed doubles. Seibel, of Red Deer, and Weber came out on the short end of a 5-7, 6-4, 10-3 score in Sunday’s championship final versus the Calgary duo of Will Hotomanie and Dawn Redmond. “Don comes to Vegas a lot and we’ve played in some tournaments down there,” said Weber. Added Seibel: “We’ve played numerous tournaments there and actually made it to sectionals one year. We’re good friends and she thought she’d come up and try a tournament here in Canada. It was tough, but we’re pretty proud of ourselves. “It’s always good to make it to a final, but you don’t always get to win.” Seibel and Weber, seeded second in the 4.0 mixed doubles, won the first game of the final before dropping the second game and then losing the thirdset tie-breaker to the top-seeded Hotomanie and Redmond. “We were seeded second and there’s no shame in losing in a third-set tie-breaker,” said Seibel. “We were right there. We were three all (in the tiebreaker) and we lost our serve.
They held their serve and it was pretty much lights out.” Weber was impressed with the Calgary team. “Making it to a tie-breaker is pretty good,” she said. “We just didn’t have the third gear that guy (Hotomanie) had. He had a good last gear. He was ripping it.” Weber and Seibel ran off three victories prior to the final, posting respective 6-4, 6-3; 6-2, 6-4; and 6-1, 6-2 wins over Herb and Anonn Wiebe, Zachary Macdonald and Jill Groves, and Jeff Lewis and Michelle Lee, all of Edmonton. Meanwhile, fourth seed Tereza Simonova of the host club captured the 4.0 women’s singles title with a 6-3, 6-0 victory over Katie Johnson. “That was probably my toughest match of the weekend,” said Simonova, the daughter of Red Deer Tennis Club head pro Rene Simon. “I had never played her (Johnson) before. I didn’t know anything about her.” The 13-year-old Simonova, who won the provincial under-14 girls title two months ago in Edmonton, opened the Play Tennis provincials with a 6-0, 6-1 win over Redmond, then reached the final with successive 6-2, 6-0 and 6-1, 6-1 defeats of Michelle Rodriguez of Airdrie and Kerry Macpherson of Calgary. Simonova also played with Tyler Begg of Red Deer in the 5.0 mixed doubles. Evan Hardy of Red Deer and Kyle Runzer of Edmonton teamed up to claim top honours in the 4.0 men’s doubles, knocking off the top-seeded Edmon-

Simon was runner-up in the men’s 5.0 singles, losing 6-3, 6-4 to fourth-seeded Francis Del Rosario of Calgary in the final.

HALL OF FAME GAME
CANTON, Ohio — Sometimes, when youth is served, it pays off. Ask Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett about that and see him smile. Rookie Devonte Holloman’s 75-yard interception return with a tipped pass keyed the Cowboys’ 24-20 victory over the Miami Dolphins in the Hall of Fame game Sunday night that opened the NFL’s preseason. Dallas also got a strong effort from its relatively inexperienced running backs, from some youngsters on the offensive line, and by a defence making the switch to the 4-3 alignment under new co-ordinator Monte Kiffin. “Any time you can give young players an extra chance to play in a game, they grow,” Garrett said. “With an extra preseason game, it makes sense to give those young guys an opportunity to play.” Hollomon, a sixth-round pick from South Carolina was perfectly situated when rookie Chad Bumphis had Matt Moore’s pass go off his hands in the second quarter. “I thought about it the whole way here and it actually happened,” he said of making a big play, after which he got his “first handshake from coach Garrett.” The linebacker sped toward the end zone with a group of blockers escorting him, and after he scored he tightly clutched the ball as he headed to the Dallas sideline. “I had a celebration in my mind, but I was overwhelmed and decided
STORY FROM PG B5
BRAVES: Good win “The big thing was we didn’t give them a lot of extra outs, which is big in baseball. If you hold a team to three outs it works much better.” The Braves may have qualified for the tier I provincials, but Lalor was more than pleased to play in tier II. “We could have possibly been in tier I if I did a few things differently during the season, but I made sure everyone played and they played a variety of positions. We needed that this weekend as we had a couple of people with nicks and bruises and we went with some people in different spots yesterday (Saturday). Everyone handled it well and that carried on to today against a team that’s very similar to ourselves. “This was a good win for the team. They deserve to enjoy this and I hope we see all those kids playing baseball next year.” The Braves scored twice in the first, six times in the second and three times in the third in the opening game. Austin Hammond had a pair of singles, three RBIs and a pair of stolen bases. Ropcean also had two singles and three RBIs and Zach Olson a pair of singles and two stolen bases. Jordan Muirhead added a triple and two walks and Kobe Scott a walk and a double. The Braves jumped into a 3-0 lead in the second inning of the nightcap and added three runs in the third and two in the fourth. “Those runs in the second were
to celebrate with my teammates,” he said. “It was fantastic, a really great play from him,” Garrett said. “We were swarming to the football, had a lot of guys around the quarterback, and then the ball pops in the air and he makes a great play and great run.” Bumphis otherwise had a strong game with five receptions for 85 yards. “I feel like I can create mismatches in the slot,” said Bumphis, who was undrafted out of Mississippi State. “Just get open. I’m a good receiver when it comes to getting in and out of my breaks, and that’s where I feel like I’m my best.” The Cowboys controlled most of the game one night after their former offensive lineman, Larry Allen, and former coach, Bill Parcells, were inducted into the hall. Quarterback Tony Romo, coming off back surgery to remove a cyst, sat out for Dallas. So the Cowboys turned to their ground game — and ground down Miami as few regulars got onto the field. Miami’s mistakes were decisive. They struggled most of the night against Dallas’ new defence masterminded by Kiffin, the man who designed the Tampa 2 scheme so prevalent throughout the NFL. Although top running back DeMarco Murray was held out, the Cowboys were dominant on the ground. big as it gave everyone some confidence that we were carrying over from the first game,” said Lalor. The Dawgs managed to get to O’Donnell for three runs in the fifth, but he shut the door the rest of the way. Kelsey Lalor had a single and a triple and scored two runs while Muirhead, who was named the team’s tournament MVP, had two singles, scored twice and stole two bases. Brad Pope had two singles, a walk and two runs while Ropcean added a double. On Saturday the Braves also defeated Calgary 11-4, which put them into the final. Griffin Moline started on the mound, going 4 2/3 innings, allowing four runs on six hits, two walks and two strike outs. Ropcean went 1 2/3 innings and Lalor 2/3 of an inning. Muirhead had a single, triple, home run and three runs batted in while Hammond had two singles and a walk and Lalor a single and a walk. In the round-robin game against Okotoks, Olson started and went five innings, allowing four runs on four hits and three walks. Pope went the final two innings, allowing a run on one hit and three walks. O’Donnell had an RBI double while Olson added two singles and Ropcean scored twice. Both Kelsey and Hayley Lalor will play for Team Alberta at the Canadian U16 (bantam) girls’ baseball championship. There’s a possibility several members of the Braves will be added to teams competing in the Canadian and Western bantam finals. email@example.com

Canada cruises past Czechs BRECLAV, Czech Republic — Canada’s men’s under-18 team opened the Ivan Hlinka Memorial tournament with a 4-0 victory over the Czech Republic on Monday. Spencer Watson scored on a penalty shot for Canada, which also got goals from Michael Dal Colle, Red Deer Rebels defenceman Haydn Fleury and Daniel Audette. Goaltender Julio Billia earned a shutout stopping 13 shots, while Czech goaltender Vitek Vanecek was far busier with 38 saves. Billia was named Canada’s player of the game, but head coach Dale Hunter pointed to defenceman Aaron Ekblad as key to the team’s win. Ekblad, the team’s captain who Hunter calls “a big horse,” finished the game with three assists. Hunter said Ekblad is versatile as both an offensive and defensive blue-liner, and that his locker-room influence is invaluable. “He’s a leader on and off the ice. He’s got a presence about himself,” said Hunter. “He cares about the kids and takes care of them. He’s one of these leaders that talks to them. He doesn’t yell and scream at them. They look up to him and he’s got a presence about himself.” Dal Colle started Canada’s attack with a power-play goal just 2:24 into the first period, and Fleury added another on the power play with three seconds left in the
period. Canada next plays Sweden today. The Swedes opened the tournament with a 3-2 loss to
Switzerland on Monday. Elsewhere, Finland edges the United States 3-2 in overtime and Russia beat Slovakia 2-1.

Jay Z reunites hip-hop, art PERFORMANCE ART FILM IS FITTING SINCE THE PROJECT SEEMS TO REPRESENT A WATERSHED MOMENT FOR HIPHOP AND THE ARTS RE-EMERGING AS PARALLEL CRAFTS BY DIANA OZEMEBHOYA EROMOSELE ADVOCATE NEWS SERVICES

If you loved hip-hop and were a have-not, could you love the arts, or at the very least, develop an appreciation? On the flipside, if you had a penchant for the arts, could you embrace hip-hop’s gritty street messages openly? New York magazine art critic Jerry Saltz — who was surprisingly impressed by Jay Z’s gallery performance — encapsulated this idea in Vulture, writing: “The thought that this might entice kids, intimidated by museums, to give them a visit? Come on! Whether it was going to be weird, cringe-worthy, or what: I was there.” Larry Ossei-Mensah, a co-curator of the Crossing the Line exhibit at the Mixed Greens gallery in New York, echoes Saltz’s idea that Jay Z injects the cool factor into the art space for young people. “A kid who might have feared going to a gallery to see and learn about art is encouraged because Jay Z has validated participating in this space,” he said. But while Ossei-Mensah hat-tips Jay Z’s efforts to pull back the curtains of the art world to an urban audience, he said he would be remiss if he didn’t

When Jay Z performed Picasso Baby in a swanky New York City art gallery last month, he looked polished in a crisp white button-up, and he wore one of hip-hop’s most iconic symbols: a gold chain. Just one week prior, exhibits ranging in price from $10,000 to $500,000 filled the same Chelsea ground-floor space that hosted his six-hour rap performance. It’s a nice juxtaposition, given the history of hiphop and art. The rapper-turned-business mogul’s chronicled the event in a documentary short, Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film that made its debut on HBO on Aug. 2 and now is available on YouTube (www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMG2oNqBy-Y). That it’s called a performance art film is fitting since the project seems to represent a watershed moment for hip-hop and the arts re-emerging as parallel crafts. In a voiceover for the film’s trailer Jay Z says, “Rap is painting out loud; concerts are pretty much performance art.” In recent years, musical artists such as Jay Z, Beyoncé, Kanye West and Swizz Beatz have made attempts to bridge the gap between urban music and the art world. They are all prominent art collectors, and their grand purchases make news. Acclaimed New York City artist Jean-Michel Basquiat (who rose to fame in the 1980s before his untimely death) is becoming a more familiar name to black youths because Jay Z brags about his Basquiats in his verses. With Jay Z’s performance at the Pace Gallery, West projecting his New Slaves music video on buildings across the globe in May and singer Solange Knowles recently performing inside a laundromat in Brooklyn, N.Y., it is becoming increasingly clear that the leading artists in urban music view their craft as performance art. During a recent interview on his Life+Times website, Jay Z bemoaned the estrangement between hiphop and the arts and described how rappers and artists in the 1980s had a symbiotic relationship. “When art and music were one,” Jay Z reminisced, “When Basquiat was hanging out with Madonna and Fab 5 Freddy and all those worlds were colliding.” The rappers rapped, he said, and their artist friends worked alongside them with spray cans in hand to create the most elaborate graffiti displays in inner cities. But somewhere along the line, the artists were placed on a bourgeoisie track. “They made it inside the galleries,” Jay Z said, and were embraced by a chic, upscale crowd. Hip-hop (a voice for the low-income and the down-
give credit to the artists who preceded Jay Z, primarily West and music producer Pharrell Williams. West tapped Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami to design the cover art for his 2007 release, Graduation, and then teamed up with American contemporary artist George Condo in 2010 for his My Beautiful, Dark, Twisted Fantasy album cover. Williams collaborated with Murakami for an Art Basel piece in 2009. While Jay Z’s lyrics in the past five years and his recent gallery performance connect the dots between hip-hop and the arts, “there are so many other people that have laid the groundwork,” explained Ossei-Mensah. “It’s been a constant thing that is always percolating — that is, musicians cultivating relationships and collaborations with artists.” However, Jay Z’s influence on pop culture is akin to the pull Ohio has on swing states during presidential elections — as Jay Z goes, so goes the nation. Ossei-Mensah was at Pace the day of Jay Z’s performance and described how the rapper “had the whole art world converging in one space. To his credit, he’s one of the few people who can create this cultural happening at this moment.” Some artists wish he would use that power to shine more light on the entire community of creators. There’s the gripe that Jay Z will have a difficult time making the arts more relevant to a broader, contemporary community if he keeps referencing dead artists. “Some people in the art world, particularly people of color, are concerned that the only artist of color Jay references is Basquiat,” Ossei-Mensah said. “If he is trying to bridge the worlds, he needs to broaden the conversation and include folks that are shaping the space now. There are a lot of young, established artists who are outside that 1980s heyday of the art world like Kara Walker, Rashid Johnson and Kehinde Wiley — and not just a Francis Bacon, who is dead.” Art curator Amani Olu, who heads an exhibition at the Gallery at Eponymy in New York, believes there is a “romanticization of Basquiat” that doesn’t quite jibe with reality. The idea that in the 1980s there was a “melting pot” and black rappers and artists came together in harmony as Jay Z describes is not exactly accurate, Olu said. The hard-core founding members of hip-hop music in the Bronx “didn’t really mess with Basquiat back then,” Olu said. “From what I understand by reading his biography, he was this artist weirdo dude, and he wasn’t someone that was accepted,” which isn’t far-fetched when you consider that the values that hip-hop espouses today‚ especially about masculinity — were similar to those prevalent in the 1980s. Hip-hop’s homophobia comes to mind. “I don’t think [hip-hop] has always been accepting of people who are different, let alone anyone who is gay,” Olu said. “Art has always been this sort of effeminate thing, especially if you’re coming from a very black masculine background.” But there’s an educational benefit to Jay Z’s efforts that Andrea Glimcher, head of communications and special events at Pace Gallery, thinks is particularly important in addressing accusations that the art world is not accessible to people from lowincome backgrounds.

Yemen releases names of 25 al-Qaida figures, says were planning attacks THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SANAA, Yemen — Yemeni authorities released the names of 25 wanted al-Qaida suspects on Monday, saying they were planning terrorist attacks in the capital, Sanaa, and other cities across the country. The development came as Washington ordered the closure of 20 U.S. diplomatic missions in the Muslim world through the week, following warnings of a possible al-Qaida attack. A statement from Yemen’s Interior Ministry said the suspects were going to target foreign offices and organizations, as well as Yemeni government installations in the impoverished Arab country. It said security was beefed up around embassies, ports, airports, oil installations and power stations. The statement listed

some allegedly senior figures in the branch, known as Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, including Saudi nationals Ibrahim Mohammed el-Rubaish and Ibrahim Hassan el-Assiri. El-Rubaish was released from Guantanamo in 2006 and is believed to have played significant roles in al-Qaida’s expanding offshoot in Yemen. He is a theological adviser to the group and his writings and sermons are prominent in the group’s literature. The Yemeni statement said security forces will pay $23,000 to anyone who comes forward with information that leads to the arrests of any of the wanted men. Washington considers the al-Qaida branch in Yemen among the terror network’s most dangerous and has launched drone strikes against its top figures in Yemen. The United States has also assisted Ye-

men’s military in fighting the militants who, at one point during the country’s recent political turmoil, had overrun large sections of land in the south. The group has also carried out bold assassination attacks on Yemeni security forces, killing hundreds over the past two years. Separately, Yemeni security officials said a hand grenade thrown at worshippers killed a man and wounded 16 people. The attack took place during evening prayers in al-Mahweet province where al-Qaida is not believed to be active. Officials said they did not know who was behind the attack but that local residents had surrounded the house of a man they suspected of being behind the attack. The officials spoke anonymously because they were not authorized to release the information.

Syrian rebels take villages in regime’s heartland, hold members of Assad’s sect BEIRUT — Syrian rebels on Monday captured four villages in the heartland of President Bashar Assad’s minority Alawite sect as they fought government troops for the second straight day in the mountains overlooking the country’s Mediterranean coast. Opposition fighters also said they captured about 400 villagers and pro-government gunmen in battles in the area. Alawites, an offshoot of Shiite Islam, dominate Assad’s regime. The capture of the villages in the coastal Latakia province was a symbolic blow to Assad, whose forces have been taking territory in recent weeks in central Syria. Syria’s conflict has taken on an increasingly sectarian tone in the last year, pitting predomi-

taking the central town of Qusair in June, and last week captured a key district in the central city of Homs, an opposition stronghold. A rebel in Latakia, who identified himself as Mohammed Haffawi, told The Associated Press that the rebels were getting closer to the town of Haffa, which was captured by Assad’s forces in June last year, and had killed dozens in the fighting. Haffawi said the rebels captured about 400 Alawite villagers and pro-government gunmen on Monday. “They are in a safe place now and under the protection of the Free Syrian Army,” he said, referring to key rebel group. A Syrian activist also said the rebels had captured about 400 Alawites. He spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of government reprisals.

nantly Sunni Muslim rebels against members of Assad’s Alawite minority. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said rebels captured the villages after attacking government outposts in the Jabal alAkrad hills on Sunday. The group, which relies on reports from activists on the ground, said at least 32 government troops and militiamen and at least 19 rebels, including foreign fighters, died in Sunday’s fighting. Much of Latakia has been under the firm control of Assad’s forces since the beginning of the conflict more than two years ago, but some areas, including Jabal alAkrad, are close to rebelheld areas and have seen fighting. It was a rare success for the rebels on the battlefield in recent weeks. Assad’s forces have been on the offensive since

Remember, you can catch more flies with honey than vinegar. Dear Annie: I was recently at a restaurant and noticed a woman with a service dog. While standing in line to give our order, I asked what service this dog performed. She politely told me that she has seizures. I thanked her and said I was just curious. She then politely informed me that, although she did not mind answering my question, it was not OK to ask what the dogs are needed for. I apologized and thanked her for telling me. But is there a way for inquiring minds to know this information, or should we simply not ask? I just want to know about the breed and ability of the dogs. — Too Curious Dear Curious: Asking what service the dog provides is akin to asking someone what’s “wrong” with them. This is intrusive.
While some folks don’t mind discussing their medical or emotional problems with strangers, it is rude to let your curiosity take precedence over their privacy. If you want to know more about service dogs, you can go online and check out the many organizations that provide them. Dear Annie: Please tell “Hate Those Harleys” that the reason a lot of motorcyclists have loud motorcycles is not for prestige, but for protection. Car and truck drivers are often eating, fiddling with the radio, yelling at their kids, talking on their cellphones, texting — everything but paying attention to what’s around them. If a quiet motorcycle comes up in their blind spot, it’s easy to veer into his lane and BANG: another statistic. That’s why motorcyclists keep their rides loud and travel in groups. — Don’t Hate Those Harleys Please email your questions to anniesmailbox@ comcast.net, or write to: Annie’s Mailbox, c/o Creators Syndicate, 737 3rd Street, Hermosa Beach, CA 90254.
Mixing, washing, packaging of bagged greens boost contamination risks BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The outbreak of a stomach bug American two states have linked to bagged salad came as little surprise to food safety experts, who say the process of harvesting, washing and packaging leafy greens provides numerous opportunities for contamination. Although nutritionists stress the chances of getting sick from vegetables are low compared to the dangers of a diet without them, packaged salads heighten the risk because leaves from several batches often are mixed together. “The washing and comingling of different batches of lettuce means a hazard that may appear in one field can show up in lots of bags of lettuce because of the common bath,” said Caroline Smith DeWaal, director of the food safety program for the Center for Science in the Public Interest, a consumer health advocacy organization based in Washington. Officials in Iowa and Nebraska say a packaged salad mix containing iceberg and romaine lettuce, carrots and red cabbage was infected with cyclospora, a parasite blamed for sickening 397 people in 16 states. It’s not clear whether the produce also was to blame for the outbreak in the other states. Last year the Food and Drug Administration issued more than 20 recalls for packaged salads, romaine lettuce or spinach. Most were due to tests finding listeria or E. coli bacteria, both of which can cause serious illness. However, of the 693 food product recalls between October 2011 and September 2012 — the last available year of records — only about 15 pertained to bagged lettuce or salads, according to FDA data. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has estimated that one in six Americans — 48 million people — get sick from foodborne illnesses each year. About 128,000 are hospitalized and 3,000 die.
In March the CDC released a study that looked at more than 4,500 food-related outbreaks between 1998 and 2008 and found more illnesses attributed to leafy vegetables — 22 per cent — than to any other food. The agency didn’t say what percentage of those was packaged. Dr. Robert Tauxe, the CDC’s deputy director of foodborne, waterborne and environmental diseases, said the industry that cuts and bags fresh produce has made significant improvements in its processes since 2006. An outbreak that year tied to E. coli-contaminated spinach caused three deaths and sickened 205 people. “A lot has been done so that actually the bagged lettuce-type produce is a good deal safer now that it was five years ago,” he said.
