Home care review ordered
Local writers thrilled for Alice Munro AUTHOR’S PORTRAITS OF REGULAR PEOPLE INFUSED WITH DEEPER MEANING
BY THE CANADIAN PRESS CALGARY — Alberta Health Minister Fred Horne has ordered a review of the government’s troubled home care system. The Health Quality Council of Alberta is to look at whether standards are being followed and whether the system is being properly managed. Earlier this week Revera — one of the private companies contracted to provide home care in Alberta — was unable to meet its contract obligations, leaving hundreds of people without services. Dr. Chris Eagle, CEO of Alberta Health Services, said Thursday that it is “simply unacceptable” if patients aren’t getting the care they need and apologized to anyone who has not received home care visits. “On behalf of Alberta Health Services, I offer my apologies to any client whose care has been negatively impacted,” he said. “That should not have happened, and we are doing all we can to ensure it does not happen again.” The Alberta NDP is calling on the government to improve the way it delivers home care services. In June, the province changed how home care is delivered in Edmonton and Calgary, awarding contracts to 13 large private companies with an eye to saving money.

get their children off the video games and into the neighbourhoods. He talked about his active childhood and the values he learned from his grandfather. “I grew up with a pair of skates, a football, a stick and a baseball,” said Horn. “I think those are some of the things we need to promote in our youth today. And promote the values of yesteryear to get our community active. I believe the city has done a lot today with the promotion of new facilities but I think the people need to get involved.” Horn said the youth today look up to sports heroes. He suggested encouraging the Red Deer Rebels to be more active in the neighbourhood. “Bring them out to the rink,” said Horn. “See how many people are playing hockey instead of watching video games. Interactive with their heroes. I think this is what we need to do.”
Alice Munro’s Nobel Prize win was applauded on Thursday by excited Central Alberta writers, who see it as a boost for all Canadian literature. “I’m absolutely thrilled she won this NOBEL ‘QUITE honour — it’s an hon- WONDERFUL’: our for all Canadians,” MUNRO A5 said Lacombe author Fran Kimmel, who believes Munro’s short stories resonate strongly with readers all over the world because her portraits of regular, and often rural, people are packed with universal meaning. “She gives so much nuance to ordinary events,” said Kimmel, whose debut novel, The Shore Girl, was recently selected as a choice for CBC’s Canada Reads series. Munro, author of The Love of a Good Woman, Runaway, Dance of the Happy Shades, Progress of Love and Who Do You Think You Are?, and other works, is popular because “she speaks the language we speak,” said Peggy Freeman of Red Deer, who writes short stories and reviews books for the Advocate. Freeman believes the much-rewarded Munro, who previously won the Man Booker International Prize, two Scotiabank Giller Prizes, and three Governor General Literary Awards, deserves this greatest of international accolades, the Nobel Prize, because she creates recognizable portraits of regular people whose ordinary lives are infused with deeper meaning. “She’s worth it,” said Freeman. Munro is only the second Canadian writer to win the Nobel Prize. Canadian-born, American-raised Saul Bellows won in 1976. Red Deer author and poet Kimmy Beach believes the international profile of the prize will draw more global attention to Canadian literature in general. She noted Munro’s win “is plastered all over Facebook,” so should raise awareness of Canada’s literary scene in countries where “Canadian writers can still seem like a novelty.” Munro is a favourite author among writers as well as readers, added Beach. “We all look up to her, no matter what we write,” she said, singling out her ability “to turn the ordinary into the profound.” Red Deer story writer and poet Leslie Greentree believes Munro’s win should increase the popularity of short stories, which have been considered less salable than novels.

Mayoral forum focuses on building a healthy community BY CRYSTAL RHYNO ADVOCATE STAFF Red Deer’s five mayoral candidates turned their attentions to promoting a healthy community in the latest allcandidates forum sponsored by the Primary Care Network. Chad Mason tipped his hat to the city’s well-used recreation facilities and park systems. If elected, Mason committed to maintaining the city’s recreation, parks and culture budget. “Anyone who is elected to council should demonstrate they are living a healthy lifestyle,” said Mason. “Hopefully others will emulate that. Motivation is contagious. It all starts individually, but we can affect others.” Mason used humour, which he said is one of the keys to healthy living and communities. “It would be best if we could all find our optimum health but let’s not take health, well-being or our lives too seriously,” he said. “In the end no one

I think it is totally misdirected.

Council candidates talk health and wellness
BY SUSAN ZIELINSKI ADVOCATE STAFF Most Red Deer City Council candidates agree the city has a lot of recreational amenities to help improve the health and wellness of citizens, but they say more has to be done to promote what exists. Bettylyn Baker said the city has to find another way to encourage users. “We can do all we want by having these wonderful facilities, but if we’re not promoting them in a stronger way, then we’re not getting the people out,” Baker told the crowd of about 120 people who gathered to hear from municipal candidates at the health forum, Leaders vs Manager, organized by Red Deer Primary Care Network, at the Harvest Centre at Westerner Park on Thursday night. “There are a lot of people who are vulnerable and don’t have the financial means to do these things so we have to start looking at how we’re going to accommodate those people. Being healthy — it’s expensive.” Jerry Anderson said the city has funding programs so low-income residents can access recreation facilities, but more must be done to make them aware that help is available. Garry Didrikson, said the city could reduce recreation costs for residents by using schools and giving tax breaks to those who use city recreation facilities. Candidates spoke of the need to improve Red Deer’s walkability. “We can ensure our path system is inter-weaved in between our community instead of just the outskirts. Working towards lighting our path systems will also go a long way to help people feel comfortable walking and running after dark,” Calvin GouletJones said. Incumbent Frank Wong said residential neighbourhoods need to be made more walkable, and he’d like to see the city’s trail system connected to the Trans Canada Trail. He would also advocate for residential and commercial development near Queens Business Park so people could walk or cycle to work. “Every journey in the city begins with walking and we’ve got to remember that,” said incumbent Paul Harris, who wanted to improve the walkability of the city through more sidewalks, trails and transit stops. The city’s hospital also needs a cardiac unit to reduce the number of cardiac deaths, he said. Many candidates used some of their two minutes at the podium to talk about improving mental health services.

REVIEW: Problems with delivery persist The change shut out dozens of other groups, including non-profits, that had been providing the service. After people complained, the government agency renewed some of the former contracts. Eggen said the decision by Revera this week shows that problems with service delivery persist. “The Progressive Conservative’s failed home care experiment has sent all home care into disarray,” NDP health critic Dave Eggen said Thursday. “This government must ensure the review is comprehensive, begins, immediately and is completed as soon as possible.” Horne said he is glad that Eagle has apologized. He said Albertans should not have to face such disruptions in service. “I need to be able to depend on Alberta Health Services when they make arrangements to provide services, including arrangements with contracted agencies,” Horne said. “I need Alberta Health Services to make sure that they enter contracts that can be relied upon by Albertans.” The group Friends of Medicare said the government should have reviewed the home care system before it made changes in June, not after the fact.
Penhold election forum a low-key affair BY PAUL COWLEY ADVOCATE STAFF PENHOLD — For a community that has just undergone a municipal inspection that produced more than 60 recommendations and boasts a mayoral race that includes a controversial councillor who was barred from all council committees, the election forum here was a low-key affair. In fact, there was nary a mention of the inspection, which was ordered by the province following a successful petition from a local resident, at the forum for mayoral and council candidates that drew about 150 people to the Penhold Memorial Hall on Thursday evening. The review prompted directives in August from Municipal Affairs Minister Doug Griffiths that council review its roles to ensure they are not acting on
Executive director Sandra Azocar said home care services should not be delivered by private-for-profit companies. “The government promised in the last election that seniors would be allowed to age where they reside with dignity and respect,” she said. “They should follow through with that promise by removing corporate profits as the factor determining direction of our home care system.”

FORUM: Next one Oct. 17 Coun. Cindy Jefferies outlined some of the city’s efforts over the last 10 years, including reducing homelessness, poverty reduction strategies, the Environmental Master Plan, reducing tobacco use and improving walkability. She said continuing work on
matters that should be left up to administration and that monthly progress reports be sent to the minister. A rare hint of the previous municipal troubles was a written question from the crowd to Chad Hoffman, who was the councillor barred from committees, and was singled out for criticism in the inspection for his fractious relationship with the rest of council. He was asked what his plan was for working effectively with town administration. “I think it’s just a matter of mutual respect,” said Hoffman, who said both council and administration should have no problem managing if they each do their jobs well. In his opening comments, Hoffman said the community’s fast growth has created “growing pains” and he wants to see more town hall meetings to hear from residents.
Please see PENHOLD on Page A3 the themes of movement, design and safety within the city’s strategic direction is a priority. “It’s only beginning and influence the organization,” said Jefferies. “As it takes hold we will see and feel more progress. We also need to continue to work on the long-awaited social master plan, which will bring welcome focus to our city’s work.” Jefferies said making cycling a vital and safe option in the community and improving the transit service are on her radar. She said the new council should focus on health and wellness in the community. Coun. Tara Veer said the next mayor and council needs to protect its existing health assets including Red Deer’s regional ambulance dispatch and staying resolute in the message to the province for keeping Michener Centre pool and residences open. Veer said she would like to follow through on establishing a youth substance treatment facility in the region, more public input on pesticide use and make formal cases to the federal and provincial governments for independent peer-reviewed research on fluoride. She said this will help resolve the ongoing community debate. “Finally we need to respond to community frustration with vehicle noise,” said Veer. “We need to position Red Deer well for a healthier future by supporting disability access through our infrastructure and pedestrian and cycling infrastructure but integrates well with established and new transportation infrastructure.” The Red Deer Chamber of Commerce hosts the next all-candidates forum on Oct. 17 at Westerner Park.

Redford defies privacy ruling on payout BY THE CANADIAN PRESS EDMONTON — Alberta’s opposition says Premier Alison Redford’s stonewalling over how much severance was paid to former chief-of-staff Stephen Carter raises questions about whether Carter was lavishly rewarded with public money for services rendered privately to Redford and her PC party. “She owes (Carter) big time,” said NDP Leader Brian Mason, reacting Thursday to news that bureaucrats in Redford’s office have chosen to defy a ruling from Alberta’s privacy commissioner that there is no valid reason to withhold the severance amount. Mason noted that Carter is not just a former chiefof-staff to Redford. He also engineered her miracle come-from-behind win at the PC leadership contest in 2011 and helped plot election strategy for her Progressive Conservative Party’s election win in 2012. “One of the questions that needs to be asked is if (Carter) was inappropriately rewarded with public money,” said Mason. After managing Redford’s successful leadership in the fall of 2011, Carter served in the government role as her chief-of-staff for about six months before stepping down to assist the Tory party in the spring
Damage from fire at Canadian University College estimated at $500,000
A fire in the chemistry lab at Canadian University College in Lacombe has left the school with roughly $500,000 worth of damages. Lacombe firefighters and crews from Bentley and Blackfalds responded to a fire call around 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday night. Lacombe fire chief Ed van Delden said the entire lab suffered substantial burns. “Building structure appears sound. They’re taking measures to ensure the elevator vault is still intact but really there is very little chance that it has been impacted. There’s walls that have been moved and so on. It was more than a little pop.” The school will need to do a “significant amount

COUNCIL: Video of forum available online Matt Chapin said he is surprised more candidates have not spoken out against the provincial government’s plan to close Michener Centre, which will be a major hit to mental health care in the city. “In many ways mental health is as important to our physical health as physical health is to our mental health. Because in all honesty, when we’re happy, we’re a lot more physically fit,” Chapin said. Incumbent Dianne Wyntjes said Red Deer has issues that can impact people’s mental health and safety, like the highest divorce rate in Alberta. “In council, we must recognize people’s challenges, such as the frailty of family relationships and household economic challenges. There is anger, domestic abuse and violence in some Red Deer homes.” She said Red Deer also needs to have a conversation about the growing trend of crystal meth from a crime, health and family perspective. Jonathan Wieler said when it comes to poverty reduction, affordable and efficient transit could make a difference to a single mother. “If we can shave 15 minutes off her daily commute, she will be able to spend hours at home, doing homework with her kids and playing with them at the park,” Wieler said.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. “We know the area the fire originated in, in the chemical closet area where they are all stored, but we don’t know what things came together to make it explosive,” van Delden said. The sprinkler system in the building was extremely effective and the fire took little effort to extinguish. City of Red Deer and Nova Chemical hazardous materials teams swept the building once the fire was out to ensure there was no further risk of a chemical release or fire. Seven Lacombe firefighters were treated for eye irritation and breathing discomfort and were transported to the Lacombe Hospital by EMS as a precaution. “They were all sent home and the doctor has no follow-up.

“That’s the sort of thing the opposition says when they think they can make political hay out of something.” The commissioner made the ruling on an application by Global TV for the severance figure under freedom of information rules. Global has been trying for over a year to get the information through the premier’s office or through freedom of information legislation. In the ruling, the privacy office dismissed arguments from Redford’s office that releasing the figure would harm Carter’s business interests or be used by others to publicly discredit him. “The disclosure of this record will not tarnish (Carter’s) reputation or unfairly expose him to harm,” read the ruling. The commissioner also didn’t accept the argument that releasing the information would make it difficult for the premier’s office to attract quality applicants in the future. The fall sitting of the legislature begins Oct. 28. Mason and Smith said in the meantime they’ll look for other ways to force the information out into the public. “There may be grounds for a contempt of the legislature ruling,” said Mason.

Wildrose Leader Danielle Smith questioned why someone who stepped down voluntarily would get a severance to begin with, and said the timing of the payout was also suspect. “Why would somebody who left a position voluntarily before the election be paid a severance after the election?

Carter, who is no longer employed by the province, did not return calls Thursday. Redford, asked about the issue in Medicine Hat, said she is not involved in decisions on what is released under freedom of information rules. She said those rules are in place to prevent political meddling. “There’s a process in place that we don’t have anything to do with,” said Redford. “It’s not for me to step in to release a document or to not release a document.

FRIDAY, OCT. 11, 2013
Some fiscal sense, please The October election promises to be interesting for a change. In fact, change may be the operative word because it will be promised by the giant roster of candidates and the real question will be whether or not it is simply a tired cliché or an actual goal for the new city council. I know little about the rookie candidates and I doubt whether I will be able to sort out their JIM agendas before SUTHERLAND the election, but I do know there is a real possibility for a host of new people on city council this year. The ghosts of bike lanes past will continue to haunt the councilors who voted in favour of this ill-conceived fiasco because it is still an issue a year after Red Deer paid $750,000 to paint lines on major streets and screw up traffic flow in an already congested city. Most people took no comfort in a Federation of Canadian Municipalities
award for this ill-advised bike lane project and I seriously doubt whether recognition by other cities’ public officials was enough to stem the tide of resentment. A few council members even used this dubious award as an endorsement of the bike lane program and I would suggest they were severely delusional if they believed people were even remotely happy with their assessment of the award’s value. At least the bike lane issue was brought to light before an election, unlike the giant Collicutt Centre construction deficit announced very shortly after the 2001 civic election so it had no impact on the incumbents’ election chances. I want people who can read a spreadsheet on our city council. I want them to assess the fundamental difference between wants and needs in the city because they will face an endless barrage of bureaucrats who will want to push the agenda for their departments. The firmly entrenched reality is a system where seasoned administrators and managers will explain their vision of how City Hall works to the council and it will be a highly complicated process. The whole system is divided into an excessive number of departments whose basic functions overlap but are designed to appear autonomous enough to exist under a separate
umbrella. The beauty of this system for its practitioners is its ability to complicate the decision process in a not-mydepartment way. The result is an expensive and layered system of management that has grown in size if not efficiency over the years. Make no mistake about it; the new city councillors will face a barrage of numbers and a traditional way of doing business City Hall style. The rookie councilors will need to be able to absorb a daily avalanche of financial figures that may or may not add up, depending upon their business acumen. The new city council will need to understand how money is currently spent and how it could be better spent on Red Deer’s most serious needs. For instance, did we really need an excessively lavish city yard built near a flood plain when the greater concern is safer streets with fewer pothole, snow and crime issues on them? As I stated earlier, city councillors need to distinguish between the wants and needs of the city. More often than not “the needs of the few outweigh the needs of the many” at City Hall, instead of the other way around. Do not buy into the noisy and motivated special interest group agendas that you will face as a councillor. You will have to serve the best interests of the majority of Red Deerians first and
foremost — and they have pretty basic needs. You will be asked to fund everything from new swimming pools to arts projects and you will have to determine whether your choices address the actual needs and best interests of the majority of the people here in Red Deer. Hundreds of thousands of dollars were spent on unwanted bike lanes and it got people very angry about how money is spent by City Hall, but the bike lanes were hardly the only questionable financial decision made by these people over the years. The new city council will have to abandon any notion they are a bank machine for every community project and group with a personal agenda. They will have to examine how the money is spent by this city’s administration and whether we need to have so many layers of people at City Hall spending public money. Red Deer is a city saddled with $199.1 million of debt with no end in sight. The debt situation is considered normal by City Hall people, but they set the parameters for debt normalcy. I want to see a city council that asks the tough questions about expenditures and makes good decisions about the entire spending process. That would be real dog-wagging-the-tail change.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
We deserve better from Redford on closure of Michener Centre Like many of you, I was disappointed to read in the Red Deer Advocate that Premier Alison Redford has not changed her position with regards to the closure of Michener Centre (Redford won’t reconsider Michener closure, Sept. 30). She continues instead to contradict her own mantra “That a promise made is a promise kept.” Equally disappointing is that this premier could not to take the time to visit Michener while in Red Deer. Surely a decision of this magnitude, deserves at least one visit — to date she is the only premier not to have done so. If she had, then perhaps she would have seen for herself that Michener is far from the “institution” she claims it to be. A visit to Michener Centre would have confirmed what 23,000 signatures, towns, city, unions and school board have said: Michener is not an “institution” but a home for our loved ones. This past May, Redford stated that she believes all Albertans should have a say in government policy. It seems again she has forgotten her own words. The decision to close Michener does not reflect the wishes of Albertans, but is a reflection of a self-centered ideology driven by a few within the bureaucracy of the government. Over the past months, we have successfully challenged the government on its arguments for closure. It is evident, therefore, that this decision is not one based on facts, but one based purely on ideology. To satisfy this misplaced ideology, special interest groups and bureaucrats from within the government are willing to throw away the long-standing principles of honesty and trust. It is a shame that in a democracy, we are forced to take a government to court in order to make it reveal the truths as to how it breaks a promise without consulting those most affected. It is our hope that once the truth is revealed, that government will be forced to respect the choice of our loved ones to remain at Michener. It is not acceptable that a government should bully those less fortunate and less able to defend itself. The families that choose to remain at Michener will continue the fight against closure.

An alternative to P3s My understanding is that public-private partnerships, P3s, basically work in the following manner: The government wants to build something such as a school or highway. It then partners with a private sector company to finance and build that thing. Once the project is completed, the government repays the capital and construction cost to the private sector company over a number of years with a guaranteed rate of return. I estimate that the rate of return is quite a bit higher than what is available through GICs or Canada Savings Bonds. Currently there are literally hundreds of thousands of Albertans, many of whom are seniors, who have fixed rate investments coming due. These individuals will consider themselves lucky if they are able to find a secure investment, such as a GIC or government bond, that pays marginally over two per cent for five years. If the government is willing to guarantee private sector firms a reasonably high rate of return on their capital, why not guarantee the same rate to Alber-

The money raised would be dedicated exclusively to specific projects. I see at least two major benefits of implementing this type of financing. The first is it would offer a new investment option to Alberta seniors and other Albertans. Seniors, who need to renew their current investments, could have a secure investment and a reasonable rate of return. A second benefit would be to allow the government, now with cash in hand, to go to an open bidding process for major capital projects rather than negotiating these deals with their select partners. This competitive process might just lower overall construction costs. Thousands of Albertans would be beneficiaries not just a few carefully selected companies. Michael O’Hanlon Red Deer
We’re not ready for wards Red Deer is a great, beautiful and progressive city but it is not a big city. That is why I question the need for a ward system. Edmonton and Calgary have some wards that have more that 90,000 voters in one ward. Red Deer has eight councillors for just under 100,000 population. You can get across Red Deer in approximately 15 minutes. It would probably take upwards of half an hour to cross some of the wards in these big cities. In Red Deer, we pretty well know what’s going on in our city because of it’s size. In the big cities, the citizens probably don’t care or know what’s going on in a ward that they rarely go into or have never been in. In a growing city like Red Deer, you might be in Ward 1 this election and Ward 3 the next election, because the boundaries of a ward normally can’t be 10 percent bigger than another. I think the administration costs alone would make it prohibitive for a city our size. If you have been to any of the election forums we’ve had so far, you will see we have 30 very capable candidates running. Now it’s up to us to pay attention or get involved so we elect the best eight.

Saskatoon had a population of over 200,000 when they brought in the ward system in 2009. I don’t think change for the sake of change is a good reason, but population growth may be a reason in the future. If you agree with this, vote no for ward system on election day.

Questions for city council candidates I would like to see potential new Red Deer city councillors and mayor candidates discuss how they would get Valley Park Manor and the Red Deer Nursing Home sites to be used by approaching Alberta Health Services and the provincial government. The sites are under the responsibility of AHS and have been vacant for four years. There was a proposal presented to the Riverside Meadows Community Association in 2011 about Valley Park Manor to be developed as a assisted living facility but that was rejected because the government hasn’t made a decision. So we need some action to help get more housing for residents who are using hospital beds, to help find ways for everyone to find a home. Could the Red Deer Nursing Home site have been established as the Native Friendship Centre and housing? How many people have gone to the City of Red Deer website to see the changes coming to Ross Street and Taylor Drive? Changes are needed to allow proper pedestrian access on Ross and Taylor The present access is considered unsafe at times. Communication is everything to people paying the taxes. Do you support the new plan? Work on the plan will start soon. Does the City of Red Deer have an emergency plan for extreme weather for the homeless when the temperature hits -20C plus a windchill in Alberta that could last for more than a day? We are supposed to be a caring city so I hope there is a plan since we no longer have Winter Inn. Shirley Hocken Red Deer

Win may boost sales TORONTO — Alice Munro has long been considered among the elite of Canadian writers, but her elevation to the global list of Nobel laureates and the subsequent debut of two of her books on Amazon’s best-seller list suggests her celebrated career is about to enter a new phase. Experts suggested Thursday that her Nobel Prize for literature may boost her own sales figures while simultaneously bolstering her home country’s reputation for literary excellence. Retailers are stocking up on copies of Munro’s famed short story collections in anticipation of a spike in demand for her work. Those collections earned the 82-yearold Ontario-born author the 110th Nobel Prize for literature on Thursday, making her the first Canadianbased author and the 13th woman to secure the honour. The impact on Munro’s sales figures was immediate. Two of her titles, her latest collection entitled Dear Life and a compilation called My Best Stories, vaulted into Amazon.ca’s top 20 sales list mere hours after news of the Nobel award was announced.
Nobel ‘quite wonderful’: Munro BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — Book lovers around the globe celebrated Alice Munro’s spare, elegant prose on Thursday when the Ontarioborn author won the Nobel Prize for literature, but the reclusive short story writer was typically succinct and humble in her reaction to the honour, calling it “quite wonderful.” “At this moment I can’t believe it. It’s really very wonderful,” Munro said from Victoria just moments after the announcement was made in Stockholm. “I knew I was in the running, yes, but I never thought I would win.” She added that she was delighted and “just terribly surprised.” In making the announcement, the Swedish Academy lauded the 82-year-old as a “master of the contemporary short story.” Munro becomes the 110th Nobel laureate in literature and only the 13th woman to receive the distinction. Soon after the news broke, media outlets around the world began clamouring to speak with the media-shy Munro. The author granted only a handful of interviews before her publisher, Random House of Canada, issued a statement saying she was “dazed by all the attention and affection” and would be saying nothing further. Photographers, meanwhile, were asked to leave the hotel where Munro was staying, apparently at the request of the author. Regarded as the world’s highest literary

Eliot and Toni Morrison. Canadian-born, American-raised writer Saul Bellow won in 1976. While the esteemed prize is certainly the highest peak of the literary award landscape, Munro is no stranger to accolades. She has previously won the Man Booker International Prize for her entire body of work, as well as two Scotiabank Giller Prizes (for 1998’s The Love of a Good Woman and 2004’s Runaway), three Governor General’s Literary Awards (for her 1968 debut Dance of the Happy Shades, 1978’s Who Do You Think You Are? and 1986’s The Progress of Love), the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize, the inaugural Marian Engel Award and
the American National Book Critics Circle Award. When she won the Man Booker International in 2009, prize judge chair Jane Smiley noted that: “the surface of Alice Munro’s works, its simplicity and quiet appearance, is a deceptive thing, that beneath that surface is a store of insight, a body of observation, and a world of wisdom that is close to addictive.” She had been considered a perennial contender for the Nobel, with British-based betting company Ladbrokes positioning her as the second-most likely recipient this year behind Japanese master Haruki Murakami. The prize money fluctuates, but last year’s Nobel was worth roughly C$1.3 million. The award will no doubt introduce legions of new readers to Munro’s exquisite portraits of quiet moments and small-town life. Reaction to those who have been touched by her work was swift and rapturous. Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne cited Munro’s Lives of Girls and Women as a favourite, adding she is “part of a lucky population who has been forever changed by (Munro’s) unparalleled ability to articulate the complexity and heartbreaks of everyday life.” McClelland and Stewart publisher Ellen Seligman called the Nobel a “momentous day for Canada and Canadian writing, and a thrilling honour in recognition of the extraordinary and enduring talent of Alice Munro, one of the great writers of our time.” Prime Minister Stephen Harper congratulated Munro on behalf of the country.

Court upholds assisted-suicide ban BY THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER — Canada’s ban on assisted suicide has been upheld in British Columbia’s Court of Appeal, leaving those arguing for the right even more determined to fight for people facing an “unbearable dying process.” Minutes after the split decision was released Thursday, a lawyer for the respondents in the case announced they would seek leave to appeal in the Supreme Court of Canada. “We think the federal government has no place at the bedside of seriously and incurable ill Canadians who have made firm decisions about the amount of care they wish to receive at the end of life,” said Grace Pastine, who represents several individuals and the B.C. Civil Liberties Association. The challenge was launched by various plaintiffs including Gloria Taylor, who suffered from ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease, and the children of Kay Carter, who travelled to Switzerland to seek doctor-assisted suicide in 2010. Two of the three judges ruled that while the law banning assisted suicide has certainly evolved in the last two decades, it hasn’t changed enough to undermine the 1993 decision from the Supreme Court of Canada. Both judges agreed that the position of the plaintiffs was sympathetic and honest. “Yet the societal consequences of permitting physician-assisted suicide in Canada — and indeed enshrining it as a constitutional right — are a matter of serious concern to many Canadians,” the ruling said. Pastine said her clients were deeply disappointed by the ruling. “What this means is that, at least for the moment, seriously and incurably ill individuals will continue to suffer against their wishes at the end of life without the choice and the dignity that they deserve.” The federal government appealed the decision from the B.C. Supreme Court, which ruled last year that safeguards could be put in place to protect against the risks associated with doctor-assisted dying. The lower court suspended its ruling for a year to allow the federal government to respond. But the judge granted Taylor an immediate exemption to seek physician-assisted suicide. She died last year of a
perforated colon, which was unrelated to her ALS. The Supreme Court last ruled on the issue two decades ago involving Victoria resident Sue Rodriguez. Rodriguez, who, like Taylor, had ALS, said the law should be struck down as a violation of the charter, but the court ruled against her. Dr. Will Johnston, chairman of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, said his group was relieved to hear the court’s decision on Thursday. The lower court decision said patients would need to personally request physician-assisted death, must be free from coercion and cannot be clinically depressed. But Johnston said those guidelines meant “virtually anyone would have qualified.” “I think that if we introduced an ethic into our hospitals where doctors and nurses are allowed to kill in certain circumstances, that would have a corrosive effect on a system which is already leaky in its own way,” he added. The federal government said the decision from the B.C. Appeal Court reinforces the government’s view that the laws banning counselling or assisting in a suicide are constitutionally valid. “The laws surrounding euthanasia and assisted suicide exist to protect all Canadians, including those who are most vulnerable,” said Paloma Agui-
lar, press secretary for federal Attorney General Peter MacKay. Faye Sonier, lawyer for the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada, which was an intervener in the case, said in a statement that the court has affirmed that the right to life is the same today as it was 20 years ago. “The court held that those who have limited abilities have no less a right to life than persons who are able-bodied and fully competent. To understand the right to life as including a right to be killed would expand charter protections far beyond what the law can guarantee.” The dissenting judge, B.C. Appeal Court Chief Justice Lance Finch, said the lower court judge was correct to find that the prohibition on assisted suicide impaired a person’s charter rights more than necessary. “An absolute prohibition which deprives individuals of their right to life, liberty and the security of person in a way which is unnecessarily broad cannot be said to be within a range of reasonable alternatives,” he said. “A carefully regulated scheme would allow access to consensual physician-assisted dying while reducing the risks of harm with which Parliament is concerned.”

TORONTO — Egypt’s foreign ministry said Thursday a travel ban has been lifted for two Canadians who were barred from leaving Egypt following several weeks of imprisonment without charge. Badr Abdel-Atty, Egypt’s foreign ministry spokesman, said the pair has been cleared to leave Egypt “within hours.” “The prosecutor general has informed us that they are free to leave the country after the accusations against them were dropped,” AbdelAtty told The Associated Press. Abdel-Atty said the prosecutor has ended the interrogation with the Canadians and has decided to cross their name out from the list of those banned from travelling. He said instructions have been conveyed to ports and the interior ministry to remove their names from the list of people banned from leaving the country. A spokeswoman for Canada’s junior foreign affairs minister said that efforts continued Thursday to ensure the two men are able to leave Cairo. “Canadian officials continue to work tirelessly to facilitate Dr. Loubani and Mr. Greyson’s departure from Egypt,” Adria Minsky said in an email. “We look forward to seeing these two Canadians return home shortly.”

Government defends national security certificate system in Supreme Court OTTAWA — The Conservative government “carefully crafted” changes to the national security certificate system that brought the rarely used tool for dealing with threats to Canada in line with the Constitution, says a federal lawyer. As a Supreme Court hearing on the controversial certificate system began Thursday, federal counsel Urszula Kaczmarczyk said the 2007 reworking allowed Mohamed Harkat of Ottawa, accused of terrorist ties, to know the case against him. The high court agreed last year to hear a challenge of the system from Harkat, an Algerian refugee who was taken into custody under a certificate in December 2002 on suspicion of being an al-Qaida sleeper agent. A revised certificate was issued in his case in 2008 after the secretive process was revamped to make it more fair. The person named in a security certificate — a means of deporting non-citizens suspected of being terrorists or spies — receives only a summary of the case against them, stripped of supporting details to protect sensitive intelligence sources and methods. Harkat, 45, denies any involvement in terrorist activities. Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin and her colleagues peppered Kaczmarczyk with queries Thursday as the federal lawyer recited chapter and verse of Harkat’s case. At one point McLachlin reminded her the court was interested not just in his circumstances but in the validity of the overall certificate regime. “You have to answer that or face the consequences,” McLachlin said. “That’s why we’re asking you these questions.” The government contends the certificate process is consistent with the guarantee of fundamental justice under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. “The security certificate scheme provides a substantial substitute for full disclosure and allows the named person to know and respond to the ministers’ case,” says a federal submission. “Mr. Harkat is not entitled to any particular process, only one that satisfies the principles of fundamental justice.”
New technologies won’t address current problems in 911 system: CRTC Several problems in Canada’s patchwork system of 911 services need to be fixed — such as accurately locating cellphone callers — before new methods like text messages or social media can be used in an emergency, according to a report Thursday. The report by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) also noted that it was “unacceptable” that the number of 911 calls made in Canada each year are not tracked. Authored by former CRTC commissioner Timothy Denton, the report noted a “large and widening gap” between what 911 services can do and what people expect they can do. For example, some Canadians mistakenly believe that emergency responders can monitor social media sites or are always provided a precise location of a mobile phone call. In many instances, when a location is provided, it can be an approximation to the closest cellphone tower. “Simply put, if they do not know where you are, they do not know where to send help,” said the report. “Inaccurate information arising from cell towers is also a significant problem in determining where callers are.”
$2.1B armoured vehicle purchase hangs in balance OTTAWA — It’s going to cost the Canadian Army more than planned to house new armoured vehicles, and commanders fear they won’t be able to afford basic upkeep of the fleet in the future, internal government documents say. Reports prepared for former associate defence minister Bernard Valcourt lay out in stark detail the pitfalls associated with the purchase of 108 close combat vehicles — a program whose future is being debated at the highest levels of the Harper government. Defence sources say cabinet may be called upon to ultimately decide the fate of the $2.1-billion program, which has apparently already passed through the federal Treasury Board. The vehicles were conceived at the height of the war in Afghanistan as the army looked for better protection from increasingly powerful roadside bombs and booby traps, but some critics now say the program’s time has passed. A report from the inter-departmental committee overseeing the program, dated Oct. 26, 2012, shows the contract was to be awarded to one of three bidders this month after extensive testing and a twoyear project delay. Bids were initially called in 2009 with great fanfare, but the competition was abruptly reset without explanation in late 2010.
Ex-city councillor jailed for child sex abuse BY THE CANADIAN PRESS SAINT JOHN, N.B. — A former municipal politician and youth worker in Saint John, N.B., abused his position of trust to sexually abuse and make pornographic images of boys for 12 years, a provincial court judge said Thursday as he sentenced Donnie Snook to an 18-year prison term. Snook, who pleaded guilty in May to 46 charges including sexual assault and possessing, distributing and making child pornography, showed no emotion as he was led away in handcuffs. His crimes, which began in January 2001 and went on until his arrest in January of this year, involved 17 boys, most of whom were from the Saint John area and between the ages of five and 15 at the time of the offences. “It’s important for the victims to know that it was not their fault,” said provincial court Judge Alfred Brien, adding that many of Snook’s victims declined counselling. “Regretfully, not all of the victims have come to terms with their abuse.” At his sentencing hearing in August, Snook said he was ashamed of his actions and told the court that he was sexually abused as a boy in Newfoundland. “If anyone should have known better, it was me,”
Snook, 41, said at the time. “I became the very thing I hated most: a person who molested children.” Snook’s sister Donna declined comment on the sentence Thursday but said she thinks there should be mandatory counselling for the victims. “Some of them are going to be, in 10 or 15 years, right back here in court and we’re going to be doing this all over again,” she said outside court. “They should have counselling because some of them are going to continue the behaviour.” Snook was given 15 months credit for time already served, meaning he has 16 years and nine months left on his sentence. He will be eligible for parole after serving one-third of that. The Crown had argued for a 21-year prison sentence, saying Snook created a “permissive atmosphere” in his suburban home by luring boys with cash, allowing them to consume alcohol and marijuana, and having them carry out sex acts. Outside court Thursday, Crown prosecutor Karen Lee Lamrock said she was satisfied with the judge’s ruling. “He’s handed down an 18-year sentence, which is one of the longest sentences ever awarded in Canada, and I hope that this will begin the healing for the victims,” Lamrock said.

Chemical weapons inspectors finish visit to third site BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BEIRUT — International inspectors have so far visited three sites linked to Syria’s chemical weapons program, a spokesman said Thursday, as the team races to destroy the country’s stockpile and delivery systems amid a raging civil war. Underscoring the complexity of the mission, a regime warplane bombed the rebel-held town of Safira, an activist group said. A regime-controlled military complex believed to include chemical weapons facilities is located near the town. The inspectors are to visit more
than 20 sites around the country as part of the disarmament mission. The facilities they inspected in the past 10 days have been in government-held areas, making them fairly easy to reach, said Michael Luhan, spokesman for the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. Operating on rare consensus, the UN has mandated the OPCW to rid Syria of its stockpile by mid-2014 — the tightest deadline ever given to the OPCW. It’s also the first conducted amid ongoing fighting. Syria’s conflict, which erupted in March 2011, pits disorganized armed rebels against forces loyal to the regime of Bashar Assad.

guards before they seized him and led him out at around 5.15 a.m., said the witnesses, speaking on condition of anonymity because they feared for their own safety. They said Zidan offered no resistance while he was being led away. The circumstances of his freeing were unclear. In the afternoon, government spokesman Mohammed Kaabar told the LANA new agency that Zidan had been “set free.” The brief report gave no further information. But it appeared Libyan forces had intervened in some way and that the abductors did not free Zidan voluntarily. A militia commander affiliated with the Interior Ministry told a private Libyan television station that members of a Tripoli-based militia stormed the house where Zidan was held hostage and rescued him. Haitham al-Tajouri, commander of the so-called “Reinforcement Force,” told Al-Ahrar television that his men exchanged fire with the captors but that Zidan was not hurt. “He is now safe in a safe place,” he said. His account could not be independently verified. Suspicion of who is behind the kidnaping fell on two state-affiliated agencies connected to militias — “the Revolutionaries Operation Room” and “the Anti-Crime Department, which have been set up by Nouri Boushameen, president of the National Congress, or parliament. Boushameen later sought to distance himself from the abduction, telling a news conference that members of the two agencies who took part in the abduction would be punished. He said he visited the prime minister while in captivity and promised to resolve the crisis.
TRIPOLI, Libya — Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zidan was abducted by gunmen who snatched him from his hotel and held him for several hours Thursday in apparent retaliation for a U.S. special forces raid that captured an al-Qaida suspect in the capital last weekend. The brazen abduction, which ended with Zidan’s rescue, underscored the lawlessness gripping Libya two years after the ouster of autocrat Moammar Gadhafi. The weak central government is virtually hostage to multiple, independent-minded militias — many of them made up of Islamic militants — that serve as security forces and hold sway across the country. The gunmen who abducted Ali Zidan Zidan were believed to be militiamen, and it appeared he was freed when members of another militia stormed the site where he was being held. Thursday afternoon, after authorities announced he had been freed, Zidan spoke at a Cabinet meeting aired live on Libyan TV. He thanked those who helped free him but provided no details and avoided pointing fingers at those behind the abduction. “We hope this matter will be treated with wisdom and rationality, far from tension,” he said. “There are many things that need dealing with.” The incident raised alarm over the power that
militias hold over government officials. The militias originated in the informal brigades of “revolutionaries” who fought Gadhafi’s forces in the 2011 revolt against his rule. Since Gahdafi’s ouster and death, the groups have resisted efforts to disarm them, multiplied in number and mushroomed in size. With the regular police forces and army weak and in disarray, the government has had to enlist some militias to act as security forces. But they often remain more loyal to their own agendas and commanders than the state, and many have hard-line Islamic ideologies sympathetic to al-Qaida. They frequently lash out at officials to get their way. Last month, the son of the defence minister was abducted, and there are frequent killings of security officials who cross militiamen. “The abduction is like the shock that awakened Libyans. Facts on the ground now are clearer than never before: Libya is ruled by militias,” said prominent rights campaigner Hassan al-Amin. The motive for Zidan’s abduction was not immediately known. But it comes after many Islamic militants and militias expressed outrage over the U.S. raid on Saturday that seized al-Qaida suspect Nazih Abdul-Hamed al-Ruqai, known by his alias Abu Anas al-Libi. They accused Zidan’s government of colluding in the operation and allowing foreigners to snatch a Libyan from Libyan soil. The government said it had no knowledge of the raid. Before daylight Thursday, around 150 gunmen in pickup trucks laid siege to downtown Tripoli’s luxury Corinthia Hotel, where Zidan resides, witnesses told The Associated Press. A large group of them entered the building, some stayed in the lobby while others headed to Zidan’s residence on the 21st floor. The gunmen scuffled with the prime minister’s

Malala in New York on eve of Nobel award BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
File photo by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Malala Yousafzai listens as Harvard President Drew Gilpin Faust introduces her to reporters at Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass., on Friday, Sept. 27, 2013. European lawmakers have awarded their top human rights prize to the Pakistani schoolgirl, who survived a Taliban assassination attempt last year. Still, militants threaten to kill her if she returns home. “If we found her again, then we would definitely
try to kill her,” Taliban spokesman Shahidullah Shahid said. “We will feel proud upon her death.” Her assailant is still at large.
NEW YORK — A 16-year-old Pakistani girl and likely contender for the Nobel Peace Prize was in New York on Thursday, the eve of this year’s prize announcement, to promote her memoir of her campaign for girls’ education and surviving an assassination attempt by the Taliban. Malala Yousafzai was in the city for a media interview, just hours after the announcement she won the $65,000 Sakharov Award, Europe’s top human rights award. The accolade and buzz for the teenager came almost exactly a year after she was shot in the head for her outspoken support for girls’ education. The assassination attempt drew worldwide attention to the struggle for women’s rights in Pakistan. Malala addressed the United Nations on her 16th birthday, and she expects to meet with Queen Elizabeth II later this month. The Nobel Peace Prize committee will say only that a record 259 candidates, including 50 organizations, have been nominated this year. Speculation on front-runners for today’s announcement is primarily based on previous choices and current events. Besides Malala, others getting attention are Congolese surgeon Dr. Denis Mukwege, an advocate for women’s rights; Svetlana Gannushkina and the Memorial human rights group she heads in Russia; Egyptian computer scientist Maggie Gobran, who chucked her academic career to become a Coptic Christian nun and run a charity; and Army Pvt. Chelsea Manning, the American soldier convicted of giving classified documents to WikiLeaks in one of the biggest intelligence leaks in U.S. history. Malala has been giving TV interviews about girls’ education since she was 11. Her father, human rights activist Ziauddin Yousafzai, founded an all-girls school in Pakistan. Becoming well-known made her a potential Taliban target. But she writes in her new book, “I Am Malala,” that she thought “even the Taliban don’t kill children.” But on Oct. 9, 2012, a masked gunman jumped into a pickup truck taking girls home from the school and shouted “who is Malala” before shooting her in the head. Her father asked his brother-in-law to prepare a coffin. But Malala woke up a week later at a hospital in Birmingham, England, and gradually regained her sight and her voice. The world’s horrified reaction to the attack led to the Malala Fund, which campaigns for girls’ education around the world. Malala has received multiple awards.

Rebels add big body in trade with Blades BY GREG MEACHEM ADVOCATE SPORTS EDITOR
The Red Deer Rebels wanted a physical presence to add to their crop of younger players; the Saskatoon Blades were seeking a forward with offensive ability. Accordingly, the Western Hockey League clubs agreed to a Thursday trade that involved forwards Cory Millette and Evan Polei. Millette, 18, was reassigned to the Estevan Bruins last week after two seasons with the Rebels and scored two goals and added an assist in two games with the SJHL club, while Polei, 17, was pointless in two games with the Blades this fall but carries 228 pounds on a six-footone frame. Polei, a Wetaskiwin product, also played four games with the AJHL Sherwood Park Crusaders this season without collecting a point, but did show an offensive upside with the midget AAA Edmonton Southside Athletics last winter with 17 goals and 32 points in 34 games. “He had a point per game in midget, he’s a physical presence and he fits into the role we were Evan Polei probably lacking in that 16- to 17-year-old age group,” said Rebels GM/head coach Brent Sutter. “We felt we would need this type of player at some point in time.” Polei will be in the Rebels lineup for home games tonight against the Prince Albert Raiders and Saturday versus the Spokane Chiefs. Millette scored 19 goals and collected 40 points in 106 regular-season games with the Rebels and was a healthy scratch for two of the club’s first four games this fall before being sent to Estevan. “Saskatoon was looking for someone they were hoping would give them a little more offence,” said Sutter. “With the young players we have this year, there just wasn’t room for ‘Millsy’ to be a top-nine forward here, especially with the way we want to play. “Hopefully, both teams are filling their needs with this trade.” To make room for Polei, 17-year-old rookie forward Earl Webb was reassigned to the Calgary Mustangs of the AJHL. Webb played five games with the Rebels. ● The Rebels will welcome another new face to their lineup tonight with the addition of 18-year-old defenceman Nick Charif of Edmonton. Charif also played with midget AAA Edmonton Southside last winter and registered five goals and 16 points in 42 regular-season and playoff games while racking up a team-leading 84 minutes in penalties. Charif, six-foot and 195 pounds, appeared in nine games with the Victoria Grizzlies before leaving the BCHL team to join the Rebels. He scored once, added one assist and had six penalty minutes with the Grizzlys.

Montreal Canadians’ Nathan Beaulieu (40) and Raphael Diaz (61) battle for the puck with Edmonton Oilers’ Nail Yakupov during second period NHL action in Edmonton, on Thursday.
Canadiens get victory over struggling Oilers OILERS CAN’T CAPITALIZE ON CHANCES, HABS WIN FOR THE SECOND TIME IN LAST THREE GAMES BY THE CANADIAN PRESS Canadiens 4 Oilers 1 EDMONTON — Brendan Gallagher and Alex Galchenyuk each had a goal and an assist as the Montreal Canadiens won for the second time in their last three outings, defeating the Edmonton Oilers 4-1 on Thursday night. Brandon Prust and Max Pacioretty also scored and P.K. Subban had three assists for the Canadiens (2-2-0), who were making their second stop on a fourgame Western Canadian trip. Ryan Smyth replied for the Oilers (1-3-0), who now embark on a lengthy six-game road trip. There was no scoring in the first period, but there were some quality chances. Edmonton’s best early opportunity came 11 minutes in when Justin Schultz pinched in from the point and had a point-blank shot on net, but hit Montreal goalie Peter Budaj in the face, ripping off his mask. With seven minutes left in the first the puck was lying in the Edmonton crease with Oilers starter Devan Dubnyk out of the play, but defender Nick Schultz was able to swoop in and fish it to safety. The best chance for either team belonged to the Habs just a minute later as Rene Bourque clanged a shot off of the post. Montreal out-shot the Oilers 12-9 in the first 20 minutes. The Oilers went up 1-0 on the power play two-anda-half minutes into the second period as Taylor Hall fed a pass in front from the side of the net and a diving Smyth was able to get a piece of it and direct it past Budaj. The Canadiens tied the game with a power-play goal of their own just before the mid-mark as
Galchenyuk floated a pass to Gallagher at the side of the net and he was able to swat it in with the heel of his stick for his third of the season. Galchenyuk earned his sixth assist in four games on the play. Montreal then edged ahead 2-1 with eight minutes to play in the second as Dubnyk was able to make a kick save in tight, but couldn’t keep Prust from sweeping in his own rebound from the shot. The Canadiens came close to adding to their lead with 11 minutes left, but Gallagher rang a shot off the post. Montreal did make it 3-1 three minutes later, breaking out on a two-on-one with an Oiler defender pinching, as Gallagher made a good pass to Galchenyuk and he deposited his first of the season before Dubnyk could get across. The Oilers pulled their goalie with four minutes left and had a chance when Ales Hemsky hit a post, but Pacioretty ended any hopes of a comeback with an empty-netter. The Oilers now head out for a game in Toronto on Saturday. The Canadiens play the third game of a four-game trip in Vancouver on Saturday. Notes: It was the first meeting between the two teams since March 8, 2012, a game won 5-3 by the Canadiens. ... Peter Budaj made his first start of the season in net for the Habs. ... Nail Yakupov and Alex Galchenyuk faced each other for the first time since they were teammates in junior with the Sarnia Sting of the OHL for two seasons. Yakupov was drafted by the Oilers first overall in 2012 and Galchenyuk was selected in the third spot overall by the Canadiens. ... Montreal defenceman Josh Gorges was able to return to the lineup after only playing one shift in the third period in his team’s loss to Calgary on Wednesday night before leaving with an injury.
Verlander shuts down A’s, puts Tigers back into ALCS BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Tigers 3 Athletics 0 OAKLAND, Calif. — Justin Verlander ripped off his jersey and rubbed Torii Hunter’s bald head. The Tigers pulled on goggles and popped bubbly, then waited for their straggling slugger. At last, Miguel Cabrera walked through the door to chants of “Miggy! Miggy! Miggy!” Detroit’s two biggest stars, Verlander and Cabrera, teamed up Thursday night to send the Tigers back to the AL championship series with a 3-0 winnertake-all victory over the Oakland Athletics in their division series. “We won the game, that’s all it’s about,” Cabrera said. “We want to win a World Series, man, that’s our goal.” With the season on the line once more in Oakland, Verlander pitched another Game 5 gem by carrying a nohit bid into the seventh inning. With his body aching, Cabrera contributed
all the offence needed in one sweet swing — a two-run homer — as the Tigers eliminated the A’s again. “I’m pitching the way I’m supposed to. I worked my butt off all year to try to get consistent and get myself where I needed to be,” Verlander said. “I feel like it finally paid off at the end of the year.” Joaquin Benoit retired Seth Smith on a fly ball with two on in the ninth to close out the deciding game of the series. The Tigers became the first team to reach the ALCS in three straight years since the New York Yankees from 1998-2001. Anibal Sanchez will start Game 1 in Boston on Saturday. The Tigers went 4-3 against the Red Sox this year, but they have never faced each other in the post-season. Detroit staved off elimination at home in Game 4, overcoming a threerun deficit on Tuesday. Behind Verlander, the Tigers never trailed in shutting out Oakland in Game 5 for the
second straight October. The big right-hander gave up a clean, two-out single to Yoenis Cespedes in the seventh to end his chance at the third no-hitter in post-season history. The hit hardly fazed him, however. “We got pretty close there, seven innings is pretty unbelievable,” catcher Alex Avila said. “To be honest, I thought we had a chance. He had the stuff for it, he had no-hit stuff.” On a night he allowed only three baserunners, Verlander made it a post-season-record 30 straight scoreless innings against one team since Coco Crisp hit a leadoff home run for the A’s in Game 1 last October. Just 364 days earlier, Verlander tossed a four-hit, 6-0 masterpiece in Game 5 in this very ballpark, a 122-pitch performance for his first career post-season shutout and complete game. “Obviously it’s something that you

dream about as a kid. It’s a win or go home, you visualize when you’re 10 years old in your backyard, Game 5, Game 7, gotta win,” Verlander said. “It’s pretty exciting to have gone out there twice in that scenario and done a good job.” He nearly matched last year’s shutout with a spectacular 111-pitch outing in a rematch of his thrilling pitcher’s duel with rookie Sonny Gray five days earlier in Game 2. Aching slugger Cabrera connected in the fourth, a drive into the left-field seats for his first homer since Sept. 17 and just his third extra-base hit in 99 at-bats. That ended a 20-inning scoreless streak by the Tigers at the Coliseum. Gray danced with danger from the start with stuff not nearly as crisp as just five nights before when he matched zeros with the 2011 AL MVP and Cy Young Award winner.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
BIG REBELS DEFENCEMAN’S DREAM COMING TRUE AFTER INTERESTING ROAD TO THE WHL
Jan Bittner was Red Deer’s firstround pick — 23rd overall — in the 2012 CHL import draft, but his stay with the Rebels was short and not so sweet. The 19-year-old defenceman suited up for just 14 games with the Rebels before being released in mid-November of last year. Held pointless during his time with the Rebels while posting a minus-9 rating and serving 25 minutes in penalties, Bittner joined the Patriot Budapest of the Minor Hockey League in Eurasia and this season is skating with HC Jablonec of the Czech League Third Division.
WHO’S HOT Everett Silvertips overage defenceman Matt Pufahl potted both goals in the visitors’ 2-1 win over Red Deer Tuesday and sniped two more — his fourth and fifth of the season — in Everett’s 4-2 victory over the Edmonton Oil Kings 24 hours later. The six-foot-three, 210-pound defenceman was traded by the Rebels to the Saskatoon Blades in December of 2011 and was acquired from the Blades in July.
FABULOUS FRESHMAN Mathew Barzal was the first overall pick in the 2012 WHL bantam draft and is already living up to expectations. The Seattle Thunderbirds 16-year-old centre leads all WHL rookies with 12 points (3-9) in eight games.
THEY SAID IT
EDITOR If his hockey career doesn’t pan out, Kirk Bear could always turn to television. The Red Deer Rebels rookie defenceman was involved in a reality TV show — Hit the Ice — filmed in Ottawa in July, a youth series that features the best young aboriginal hockey player from across the country participating in physical training, on-ice drills and team-building activities. “You practise with NHL players and the producers try to out you through the reality of what it’s like to be an NHL player,” said Bear. “You skate and work out twice a day, things like that. They put you through the whole works and they even make cuts.” The cast was split into teams and Bear, as captain, led his squad to two wins. Watching from the stands was Gatineau Olympiques assistant coach Eric Landry, who expressed his fondness for Bear’s potential to Olympiques GM/head coach Benoit Giroux. Giroux, an assistant to 2013-14 Canadian national junior team bench boss Brent Sutter, relayed Landry’s sentiments to the Rebels GM/ head coach, who had already placed Bear on the club’s 50-man protected

Red Deer Rebel Kirk Bear has made the most of his opportunities on his way to making a dream of his come true, playing in the WHL. list at the recommendation of Red Deer director of scouting/player development Randy Peterson. “Benoit called and said we have a player who could be developed into a solid major junior defenceman,” said Sutter. “It was encouraging to hear that because I hadn’t seen him play.
Randy and Shaun (Rebels senior scout) had seen him and I got reports from other people who had seen him.” Bear, who suited up with the midget AAA Notre Dame Argos the past two seasons and last winter was the team captain, was promised a topfour spot with the Mel-
ville Millionaires of the SJHL for this season and was also selected by the Omaha Lancers in the USHL draft in May. “The Calgary Hitmen were also in contact with me, but Brent said that if I wanted to have a good shot at playing in the league and with a good organization, to come here, and that’s what I decided to do,” said Bear. By playing with either Melville or Omaha, Bear would have kept his NCAA scholarship eligibility. “I was good in school, but it was always a dream of mine to play on a Western Hockey League team and now the dream is coming true,” he said. “Now it’s up to me to continue to improve and make the jump to the next level.” The 18-year-old product of Whitewood, Sask., comes from an athletic family. “My parents (Tim and Cindy) both played hockey and I have an uncle who’s going to be a pro golfer,” said Bear. “Another uncle, Robin Big Snake, played in the WHL and played pro hockey. I’ve always looked up to him and he’s shown me the ropes. Now that I’m here, he’s my supporter.” At six-foot-three and 197 pounds, Bear has the size to play an effective physical style. “I like to get down and gritty in the corners and I’ll take the necessary steps to carry the puck
up ice and make a play,” he said. For now, Sutter is looking for Bear to provide a physical presence while playing within himself. “He has to play physical, that’s what his role is here,” said Sutter. “He’s come in here with lots to learn, but each day he’s like a sponge — just taking it all in and putting it to use. Each day he’s getting better and better.” Sutter realized from Day One that Bear would be a project, but he also saw a lot of raw talent. “We knew that it would be a process with him, but with his size, skating ability and feistiness . . . we just knew there was a lot to work with from the start,” he said. “It’s a big learning curve for him, but he’s handling it really well. Again, it’s one day at a time, but he’s thrown himself into it and he’s been effective.” Bear, who in seven games has been held pointless, is a plus-one in the plus-minus category and has served four minutes in penalties, is convinced that he’s in the right place at this point in his life. “This is a great organization,” he said. “People always talk about how hard Brent Sutter is, but I feel the chance to play under his wing is a great opportunity. He’s teaching me things I’ve never learned before. This is a great place to be.” firstname.lastname@example.org

I want to lead by example and play hard every time I have a chance.” “With Cory, it’s experience, and he’s still young at 18 years old,” said Struch. “We bring in a guy who’s been in the league a couple of years.” Added Blades GM Lorne Molleken, who sent 17-yearold forward Evan Polei to the Rebels in return for Millette: “Over the last couple years as a 16- and a 17-year-old in Red Deer he sparked our interest. We thought he would be a guy that had some offensive upside if given another opportunity.” After being sent to Sherwood Park of the AJHL at the start of the season, Polei was recently recalled to the Blades because of injuries. “He had a tremendous training camp. I thought in one of the exhibition games he played real well,” Molleken said. “In the end he wasn’t able to crack our lineup. I’m just hoping the trade works out for both boys and helps both clubs.” Meanwhile, the Blades released defenceman Kevin Pochuk, who was acquired — along with 2014 third- and seventh-round bantam draft picks in 2014 — from the Rebels in June for overage forward Lukas Sutter. After missing all of September with a shoulder injury, Pochuk recorded no points, six penalty minutes and a minus-2 rating in five games. “Unfortunately for Kevin, things just didn’t work out,” said Molleken. gmeachem@reddeeradvocate. com

Playoff positions on line in Stamps, Lions game BY THE CANADIAN PRESS
CALGARY — The battle for playoff positioning in the CFL’s West Division kicks into high gear when the Calgary Stampeders host the B.C. Lions today. The Stampeders, Lions and Saskatchewan Roughriders have all secured playoff spots, but order of finish will be determined in these final four weeks of the regular season. Each week features a head-to-head matchup between two of them while the other faces the Edmonton Eskimos. At 11-3, Calgary is the frontrunner to finish first in the West with the Lions and Roughriders chasing at 9-5. The top team gets the division final at home Nov. 17 plus a week’s rest, while the second seed hosts the third seed in the semifinal Nov. 10. “The good thing is it’s in our hands,” Stampeders quarterback Kevin Glenn said. “We don’t need help from anybody else. It’s set up for us pretty good. All we have to do is go out and handle our business now.” The 3-11 Eskimos are at the bottom of the division. They have been all but mathematically eliminated from a crossover playoff spot in the East Division. The combination of a Calgary win Friday and an Edmonton upset victory over the Roughriders on Saturday would translate to the Stampeders finishing no worse than second in the division and a home playoff date. The Stampeders and Lions were 1-1 heading into the third of their four meetings this regular season. The two clubs close out the campaign against each other in Vancouver on Nov. 1. “B.C. has a really good defence, but it’s important for us to establish dominance,” Stampeders running back Jon Cornish said. “If we want to win the West, we have to show to the other best teams in this league, Saskatchewan and B.C., we’re No. 1.”
‘YOU CAN’T UNDERSELL THE VALUE OF THIS GAME. IT’S A HUGE GAME FOR BOTH TEAMS.’ — MIKE BENEVIDES B.C. LIONS HEAD COACH
Calgary downed the Lions 44-32 in the season opener, but lost 27-22 in Vancouver on Aug. 17. “A lot of the things we looked at and discussed throughout the week was the last time we played this team,” Lions head coach Mike Benevides said. “This is an outstanding football team with tremendous balance. It’s going to be a huge challenge for us. “You can’t undersell the value of this game. It’s a huge game for both teams.” Calgary is coming off a 38-11 win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers with Cornish running for a careerhigh 208 yards. The New Westminster, B.C., is 42 yards away from breaking his own record of singleseason rushing yards by a Canadian running back. B.C.’s running game stalled in a 31-17 loss at home to the Roughriders last week. The Lions mustered just 80 yards on the ground with their leading rusher Andrew Harris held to 10 yards on six carries. Benevides took some of the blame for that low number upon himself, but Harris says the offence has to commit to the running game. “The biggest thing is the want to,” the Winnipeg native. “The offensive co-ordinator has to want to do it, the offensive line has to want to do it and I have to be the guy who delivers and hits the holes and makes plays. “The run game is very important and it’s something we need to catch fire on. Calgary is definitely a team we need to knock off.” The Stampeders will get their first look at Lions
quarterback Thomas DeMarco, who is 2-1 since Travis Lulay was sidelined with a shoulder injury. DeMarco has averaged 221 throwing yards in his three games and has four touchdown passes. He was intercepted three times by Saskatchewan last week. “Thomas DeMarco, I’m ready for him,” Stampeders sack leader Charleston Hughes said. “He’s a good quarterback. Is he ready for me is the question.” Calgary’s depth at quarterback gives the Stampeders a distinct advantage over their western rivals down the stretch. Glenn is 2-1 in three starts since returning from injury and 7-2 overall this season. Drew Tate will dress for a second game since his return from a throwing arm injury in Week 2. Waiting in the wings is Bo Levi Mitchell, who is 3-0 in starts this season. Calgary had to plug injury holes at quarterback, at receiver, on the offensive line and in the defensive backfield this season. Now, it’s the special teams’ turn. The Stampeders lost linebacker Alvin Bowen and running back Wilkerson DeSouza to anterior cruciate ligament knee injuries in the Winnipeg game. Receiver Chris Bauman was on the verge of returning to the lineup after breaking a bone in his wrist during training camp, but also injured his ACL this week. Running back Clifton Smith and linebacker Glenn Love were activated from the practice roster for this game. Linebacker Malik Jackson is rotating back into the lineup after a broken arm and may see time on special teams. Notes: The Stampeders and NHL’s Flames have home games starting at the same time today in Calgary. The teams have the same ownership group. ... Temperatures are expected to hover near the freezing mark at McMahon Stadium for game time. ... Lions kicker Paul McCallum will play his 304th career regular season games and tie Paul Osbaldiston for sixth on the all-time list.

After tice any more,” admitted cracking out as a steer Nieborg, about his prepwrestler in his younger aration for the FCA Fidays, the Rimbey cowboy then quit the sport for more than a decade to focus on business and family. But a few years ago, he got the itch again and embarked on a very successful comeback in the amateur ranks. This year has been stellar in his books. He managed a trifecta, finishing as season leader in the Lakeland Rodeo Association, the Wild Rose Association, and in the FCA. “It’s been a heckuva year,” grinned the 48-year-old. “For an old (guy), I did all right.” Over the last several weeks, he’s been rounding out the big year by finishing second overall
nals. “My knee is starting to go, so this might be my last year. We’ll see what the spring brings. A guy doesn’t want to be crippled the rest of his life. I’m happy . . . I’ve had a really good comeback.” “I’ve been trying to slow down for the last couple of years. But halfway through this season, I told my wife ‘I’ve got a shot at a couple of these Finals’ so I decided to gun for it.” Nieborg’s experience and intensity are valuable assets when it comes to a Finals pressure cooker. “It’s a matter of hopefully drawing decent, and running at the cattle. Just don’t get nerved up, and take every steer for what it is. “For a lot of guys, rodeo is their play time, and don’t get me wrong, it’s my play time too. but if I can’t make some money at it too, I won’t go,” admitted Nieborg, who runs a tiling firm in Rimbey. He won’t be the only experienced bulldogger in the field. Also at the Finals is veteran Leon
Laye of Cadogan, who made 17 trips to Edmonton and the CFR as a pro cowboy, winning the Canadian steer wrestling championship in 1998. He’s 54, so Nieborg won’t be the oldest bulldogger in the pack. But even Laye isn’t the oldest competitor at this year’s FCA Finals. Give that honor to barrel racer Twylla Bruhn, who qualified for her first FCA Finals 40 years ago, and is back in the hunt at 61. The FCA is a family oriented circuit, and that’s evident with an FCA first this year. Four members of one family will all be taking part, with Bobbi June Radford of DeWinton in the barrel racing, along with sons Max in steer wrestling, Brock in bull riding, and daughter Skyler Mantler, also in the barrels. Innisfail will be well represented, with roper Ben Robinson, steer wrestler Blake Gagnon, and his brother Riley in steer riding, along with Kelsey Koenning in saddle bronc riding and Melissa Daines in barrel

Lightning strike down Rams in finale HUNTING HILLS LOCKS UP FIRST PLACE IN CONFERENCE WITH WIN HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL
Lightning 46 Rams 10 The Hunting Hills Lightning didn’t know it at the time, but their 46-10 win over the Lacombe Rams was exactly what they needed to finish off their Central Alberta High School Football League regular season. The victory Thursday night, coupled with the Notre Dame Cougars upset 18-9 win over the Lindsay Thurber Raiders, gave the Lightning first place in their conference. Lightning head coach Kyle Sedgwick didn’t know until three hours after his team left the field what the final standings would be. He talked about finishing second, although he didn’t rule out first place. “It was important for us to set the tone against them (Rams) as we could well meet them again in a couple of weeks with us in second and with them in third . . . then again we’re not out of first place yet.” The important thing was that the Lightning, 3-1, coming off their first loss in regular season in four years, turned in a solid performance. “This was a big game for us to rebound off a loss (to the Raiders),” said Sedgwick. “Our losses of late have been in our final game of the season and then we have all year to come back. But this was big. A bit sloppy in the first half as we took eight penalties to their
two (actually one). The second half they ran into some penalty trouble.” While the Lightning were the better team, they still had some problems on defence handling Lacombe running back Josh Prevost, who finished with 168 yards on 20 carries. “Our problem is we’re a bit undersized at linebacker,” said Sedgwick. “And our guys were to busy trying to strip the ball, rather than making the tackle, and we can tackle.” The Lightning led 14-0 after the first quarter and 24-0 at the half. Ashton Hall played a major role in the team’s offence as he returned a punt 33 yards for a touchdown and also grabbed passes of 11, 70 and 46 yards from quarterback Jarrett Burzuk for touchdowns. “We have a lot of fast kids on our team and we were able to get into open space and get things done,” said Hall, who finished with five catches for 142 yards. Hall, a three-year veteran who was part of the Lightning championship run the last two seasons, felt the loss to the Raiders didn’t hurt. “In the long run it may have been good for us,” he said. “Then next time we play them, if it’s in the championship, we‘ll play with more urgency and passion. I think our experience will help us if we do make the final.” Matt Russell also scored on a 54-yard punt return for the Lightning. “We practice special teams when we walk through before

Skylar Roth added six converts, a single on a kickoff and a 22-yard field goal. Quarterback Judah Knip scored the Rams major on a
Kings’ defence shuts down Huskies RDC ATHLETICS BY ADVOCATE STAFF Kings 83 Huskies 59 The Red Deer College Kings used a strong defensive effort to down the Keyano Huskies of Fort McMurray 83-59 in Thursday’s opening game of the iHotel RDC Classic men’s basketball tournament. “I liked our defensive intensity in the first half of the game,” said Kings head coach Clayton Pottinger. “We still have a lot of work to do, but we were able to create some offence with our defence and that’s how we were able to get so many points. “Our execution in the half court still isn’t great, but we’re doing a good job of communicating and we’re doing a pretty good job defensively.” While it’s still early in the season — the Kings’ don’t begin regular-season play until Nov. 1 — Pottinger said time is of the essence in regards to his team’s preparation and maturation. “To be flat-out honest, we’re behind where we were at this time last year,” he said. “But it’s a different team, a different year. It’s just the way it goes sometimes, I guess.” Clay Crellin and Mari Peoples-Wong, with 16 and 12 points respectively, were the top scorers against the Huskies, who impressed Pottinger. “They’re very good, one of the teams who have good guys at every position,” said the RDC coach. “They’re missing one of their key guys right now, which obviously makes a difference. Down the stretch I think they’ll be one of the toughest teams in the (Alberta Colleges) league.” The RDC Classic continues today at 2 p.m. with Keyano facing Olds. The Kings take on Concordia at 4 p.m. and Lethbridge plays Lakeland at 6 p.m. The Kings face Lakeland at 6 p.m. Saturday and the tournament concludes with an 8 p.m. match featuring Olds and Concordia. Queens 1 Edge Prep 1 The Red Deer College Queens are still seeking that killer instinct. The Queens were the better team for
more than their share of a women’s exhibition hockey game Thursday at the Arena, but had to settle for a 1-1 tie with the Edge Academy Prep club out of Springbank. “That was a weird game,” said RDC coach Bob Rutz. “There were 12-minute pockets in each period where I thought we were dominant. We generated a lot of offence from below the goal line and got pucks and bodies to the net and when we play that way we’re tough to play against. “But there were also like eight or nine minutes in each period when we just kind of fell asleep and I thought that was the difference. They have a good, skilled team, but I thought we had more scoring chances than they did.” Queens netminder Camille Trautman made 27 saves while her teammates fired 32 shots at Edge goaltender Kirsten Chamberlain. Both goals came in the second period, with Emily Lougheed staking RDC to a 1-0 lead and Codie Cross replying for the visitors. “We have to play as close to 60 minutes as we possibly can. We can’t
play for 10 and take 10 off, or whatever,” said Rutz. “But I’m confident in this group that they’ll get there, that they’ll get to that level, because they’ve all bought in. It’s just a matter of breaking some old habits and getting on the same page.” ● Volleyball Queens setter Bronwyn Hawkes was named the ACAC female athlete of the week as she led the Queens to the Wild Rose Classic championship. ● Twenty-one RDC athletes received the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association national scholarship awards for the 2012-13 season. The awards are presented to student-athletes who achieve honour standings. Recipients were: Brian Prenoslo, Sarah Williamson, Melissa Woolley, basketball; Timothy Haasdsyk, Kieran McDonald, Nicole Wagner, Anna Duda, Laura Friesen, cross-country running; Jeff Ireland, Lindsay Janko, curling; Braden Oehlerking, golf; Hayden McLean, Cale Jacobs, Andrew Jevne, Logan Grenier, soccer; Jonah Gilham, Sam Brisbane, Kirsten Sorensen, Brooke Sutter, Karissa Kuhr, Leanne Price, volleyball.

Russel led the Lightning with 119 yards rushing on 11 carries while Cole Layden had 62 yards on three carries, all in the fourth quarter. Burzuk hit on five of 10 passes for 155 yards while Knip hit on eight of 15 for 196 yards. Ashton Jones had four catches for 99 yards and SaDair Nobel grabbed three for 93 yards.

STORIES FROM B1
REBELS: Reassigned While adding Charif to the Red Deer roster, Sutter reassigned 17-year-old rookie rearguard Jake MacLachlan to the Cowichan Valley Capitals of the BCHL. MacLachlan played five games with the Rebels, recording one assist. ● Forward Cole Chorney will return to the Red Deer lineup tonight after sitting out the last two weeks due to an illness. Defenceman Kolton Dixon is out indefinitely after suffering a concussion in Tuesday’s 2-1 home-ice loss to the Everett Silvertips, while forward Lukas Sutter is slated to return from an upper-body injury for Oct. 18 and 19 home games with the Edmonton Oil Kings and Calgary Hitmen. email@example.com
TIGERS: Frustrating This time, Verlander didn’t allow a baserunner until Josh Reddick drew a one-out walk in the sixth — but the no-hit bid remained until Cespedes’ single the next inning. The hardest hit ball was a fly to the centre field warning track by Stephen Vogt in the sixth. “Everything about it is frustrating. We’re a better team than that,” Vogt said. “We deserved better. We just didn’t get it done.” Verlander struck out 10 in eight innings, giving him 21 Ks in these two starts. He has 43 strikeouts in his four playoff outings against Oakland the past two years. The A’s saw their season end at the hands of Detroit for the third time in as many postseasons, including in a four-game sweep in the 2006 ALCS. Oakland has lost its last six winnertake-all Game 5s and fell to 1-12 in potential clinchers since 2000. The A’s struck out 57 times for the most in a best-of-five playoff series. Verlander earned the nod for the
first round of the playoffs netx week while the Rams will either meet Camrose or Stettler. ● In non-conference play Wednesday the homestanding Stettler Wildcats downed the Sylvan Lake Lakers 11-0.

decider after Game 1 winner Max Scherzer pitched in relief of an 8-6, season-saving win Game 4 in Detroit. Manager Jim Leyland had no qualms turning again to Verlander, who went 13-12 this season. Gray, looked overmatched this time. He wiped his brow and never got comfortable. Then, he broke his left thumb on Prince Fielder’s fifth-inning comebacker. A’s manager Bob Melvin went with Gray over 18-game winner and 40-yearold Bartolo Colon, who yielded three first-inning runs to lose Game 1. “He pitched fine tonight,” Melvin said. “He basically just gives up a home run to Miguel Cabrera. When you don’t score a run and only get a couple hits, you know you have to be perfect.” These Game 5s are becoming awfully familiar for both sides in their recent October rivalry. Detroit held another clinching party in the visiting clubhouse of the Oakland Coliseum, where a raucous crowd of 46,959 swirled yellow towels until Benoit threw his hands in the air at the final out. Avila met Benoit in front of the mound for a long embrace as their teammates quickly joined them — with cheers of “Let’s go Oakland!” still ringing out. The Tigers came together near the mound for a unique chant in which they squatted in unison and raised their hands in the air. They call it “Turn Up,” because “you’ve gotta turn it up,” Avila said. The 93-win Tigers are determined to take the next step and win a championship after being swept in four games of the 2012 World Series by the San Francisco Giants. “That’s the motivation that we’ve been looking for, that we’ve had all year,” Verlander said. “Guys like Torii who wasn’t a part of our team last year, he comes in and he’s got that urge. He wants to win that championship before he retires. Everybody else that was here that had a taste of that last year how much it hurts, it’s that extra driving factor.”

Cougars get solid two-way effort to upset Raiders LINDSAY THURBER LOSS DROPS THEM OUT OF FIRST IN DIVISION, FACE REBELS IN PLAYOFFS HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL BY DANNY RODE ADVOCATE STAFF Cougars 18 Raiders 9 The Lindsay Thurber Raiders will look in the mirror and blame themselves for an 18-9 loss to the Notre Dame Cougars in their final Central Alberta High School Football League regular season game at Great Chief Park Thursday. On the other hand the Cougars will look in that mirror and feel proud about a solid two-way performance. The Raiders lost more than a game as they dropped out of first place in their division, slipping behind the Hunting Hills Lightning, who earlier ran their record to 3-1-0 with a 46-10 win over the Lacombe Rams. The Raiders finished second at 2-1-1 and will host the Rocky Mountain House West Central Rebels in the first round of the playoffs. The Cougars finished with a 1-3 record and will host the Ponoka Broncs in a battle of the two fifthplace teams. The Cougars jumped into a 7-0 lead at 2:54 of the first quarter when quarterback Keegan MacDonald hit Theoren Gill on a 35-yard pass and run play. Eric Meraw kicked the convert. â€œWe didnâ€™t get off the bus with anything on offence or defence . . . we came out flat,â€? said Raiders head coach Dave Smith. â€œWe just didnâ€™t do any of the things we usually do well. â€œBut then that team (Cougars) came to play football. Our guys thought they could just show up and win and thatâ€™s not the way it worked. Notre Dame did an excellent job, especially on defence. If we execute it may have been a different story, but . . .â€? Owen Smith kicked a 20-yard field goal to put the Raiders on the board in the first quarter but Meraw came back with a 25-yard field goal in the second quarter. The Raiders then gave up a safety at 11:40 to make it 12-3 at the half. MacDonald connected with Jesse Kowalchuk on a 66-yard touchdown pass and run at 4:01 of the third quarter while the Raiders made some noise at 5:23 of the final quarter when quarterback Braydon Moorman hit Kolbi Street on a 10-yard touchdown strike. The Raiders then failed on a two-point convert. The Raiders had a couple of chances in the dying minutes, but a pair of interceptions killed any thoughts of a comeback. â€œWe just canâ€™t keep winning games in the final quarter,â€? said Dave Smith, who felt his team may
â€œWe worked all week and prepared hard for this. Our guys didnâ€™t lay down and came to win. And we did it against a classy guy (Dave Smith) and I really respect their program.â€? MacDonald rushed 10 times for 50 yards while hit on four of 10 passes for 124 yards. Sam Vesely had 13 carries for 101 yards for the Raiders before leaving with what appeared to be a knee injury. Moorman hit on nine of 23 passes with at least four being dropped. He threw for 91 yards. â—? In Rocky Mountain House the Rebels, 2-2, moved into third place in their division with a 37-20 win over the Wetaskiwin Sabres, 2-2. Darcy Gusek had two touchdowns for the Rebels with Levi Munday, Logan Eklund and Nolan Guilfeyle adding single majors. Don Bertagnolli had four converts and a field goal. Liam Jones, Aaron Abrahamson and Dallas McMurrer added touchdowns for the Sabres with Jesse Graff adding a two-point convert. Gusek led the Rebels with 53 yards rushing on 12 carries while Logan Eklund grabbed four passes for 75 yards. Thomas Soodsma hit on six of 15 passes for 170 yards. Jones led the Sabres with 45 yards rushing on seven carries while McMurrer grabbed 12 passes for 252 yards. Abrahamson connected on 17 of 33 passes for 329 yards. email@example.com

have been hurt by the win over the Lightning the previous week. â€˜Sometimes itâ€™s as hard to get back up after a big win as it is a loss,â€? he said. â€œBut weâ€™re still a young team thatâ€™s still learning. This was a new experience for us. But whatâ€™s good is that weâ€™re still in the playoffs and have a home game next week.â€? Cougars head coach Gino Castilian couldnâ€™t have been happier. â€œIâ€™m so proud of the kids. They came to play and while we may have caught them off guard a bit, as they were coming off that big win, we still played extremely well.â€? Castellan can only look back at a couple of close losses to Lacombe and Sylvan Lake and think of what may have been. â€œThereâ€™s no question we were one game away from making the playoffs. But the breaks didnâ€™t go our way in terms of injuries. But itâ€™s a learning experience for a young team and we defeated the No. 1 ranked team in our zone tonight and this will go a long way for next year.â€? Parker Dahl, who moved into the offensive backfield after the season started, turned in a strong performance for the Cougars, finishing with 97 yards rushing on 17 carries before being slightly injured. â€œParker ran hard and heâ€™s fine and will play next week,â€? said Castellan, whose team prepared all week for a big finish to the regular season.

Giants’ woes continue with loss to Bears NFL BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Bears 27 Giants 21 CHICAGO — Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall were simply too much to handle. So was Tim Jennings. Cutler threw two touchdown passes to Marshall, and Jennings had two of the Chicago Bears’ three interceptions against Eli Manning in a 27-21 victory over the winless New York Giants on Thursday night. The Bears (4-2) snapped a two-game slide following a 3-0 start. New York is 0-6 for the first time since the 1976 team dropped its first nine, a stunning turn for a franchise that won the Super Bowl two years ago. “We see things each and every week that tell us we cannot just be good, we can be very good,” Bears coach Marc Trestman said. “But we also know there’s a lot of work ahead.” The Giants came in clinging to the idea that they could claw their way back into the NFC East race because every team in the division has a losing record. It’s hard to see that happening, the way they’re playing. “We’re all sick of it,” coach Tom Coughlin said. “We’re all sick of losing, but we put ourselves in this position. There is only one way to get out of it.” Cutler and Marshall were in tune early on, connecting for two touchdowns, and Jennings returned an interception 48 yards for a score as Chicago
built a 24-14 halftime lead. The Bears were up by 13 when New York’s Brandon Jacobs ran it in from the 1 in the closing seconds of the third after Jennings got called for interference against Hakeem Nicks near the goal line. That cut it to 27-21, but Jennings made up for it in a big way when he picked off an overthrown pass by Manning intended for tight end Brandon Myers at the 10 with 1:54 left in the game. Cutler was 24 of 36 for 262 yards after throwing for 358 against New Orleans last week. Marshall played a huge role in this one after venting over a lack of catches against the Saints, finishing with nine receptions for 87 yards. Martellus Bennett had 68 yards on six catches against his former team, while Alshon Jeffery had just one reception after going off for a franchise-record 218 yards in the previous game. “We won the game but we kind of leave a little bit unsatisfied because I think offensively we could have exploded for a little bit more,” Cutler said. Robbie Gould kicked two field goals, including a 52-yarder in the third quarter that gave him 12 straight conversions from 50 or longer, and the Bears eased at least a few nerves, even if this win came against one of the NFL’s four winless teams Manning, the owner of two championship rings, completed 14 of 26 passes for 239 yards and a touchdown, but he ran his league-leading total to 15

He had passes picked off on the first two possessions, with Jennings’ 48-yard TD coming on the second one. “I feel bad for my teammates, I feel bad for my coaches and everybody, fighting every day, and I’m fighting too,” Manning said. “I am trying to get a win for these guys.” It’s not easy when he keeps throwing it to the other team. But the Giants aren’t about to
go away from him. “You’re not going to go back to not throwing the football. That’s not something that’s going to happen,” Coughlin said. “He’s been too successful for so many years throwing the ball.” Rueben Randle had 75 yards receiving and a touchdown for New York. Jacobs, starting for the injured David Wilson, ran for 106 yards and two scores, but the Giants fell yet again.
Cutler threw for 179 yards in the first two quarters, Marshall had 65 and the Bears racked up 227 yards in the opening half. The Giants (212 yards) moved the ball in the early going but had trouble hanging onto the ball again — no surprise there. After all, they came in leading the league with 20 turnovers. The Bears, who had 14 takeaways when the night began, quickly added to that total.
Canada, U.S. clash in first of many meetings before Olympics
Harnett named Canadian chef de mission for Pan Am Games BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — Curt Harnett is Canada’s most decorated cyclist but he was forced to do the majority of his training south of the border. That’s why the 2015 Pan American Games in his hometown of Toronto are so close to his heart. The 48-year-old was named chef de mission of Canada’s Pan Am team Thursday, and said the legacy from the Games will give young Canadian athletes opportunities he didn’t have. “Toronto 2015 is a game-changer,” Harnett said. Harnett is the only Canadian cyclist to win three Olympic medals, capturing silver in the 1,000 metres in 1984 in Los Angeles, and then bronze in the sprint at both the 1992 and 1996 Games in Barcelona and Atlanta. He accomplishment those feats despite spending several months of the year living and training in California because Canada didn’t have a suitable velodrome. “These Games matter,” he said. “They matter because of the unprecedented investment into sport in this region, it’s something we in sport have long waited for, and it’s critical, it ensures that our athletes continue to pursue excellence right here at home and that we as a sporting nation retain the world class coaching that athletes require to compete and win. I had to travel to the United States to get access to proper facilities as I prepared to take on the world. Well to that I say ‘No more.”’ It’s no surprise that of all the Pan Am venues going up around the GTA, he’s most thrilled about the velodrome in Milton, Ont., just west of Toronto, not only because it will be a training base for Canada’s top cyclists, but because of its dual use as a community centre. Three basketball courts will be built at the facility that Harnett says will also help get young kids interested in cycling. Harnett said he grew up in Thunder Bay playing mostly hockey. His high school football coach — who was also the president of the Thunder Bay Cycling Club — suggested he take up cycling as a way to keep in shape for hockey in the summer.
know they’re on the Canadian team. Only two goalies can dress for the games in Sochi so they’re vying for coveted starts at the Olympics. The format of the Olympic women’s hockey tournament has been altered. Canada and the U.S. will face each other in the preliminary round before a possible rematch for gold Feb. 20. The Gutterson Fieldhouse at the University of Vermont is the site of some of Canada’s highest highs and lowest lows. After a demoralizing, worst-ever 9-2 loss to the Americans to open the 2012
world championship there, Ouellette scored the overtime winner for Canada in a 5-4 victory in the final. “That rink became special of how we were able to turn that tournament around and win that final game,” she said. “A lot of players would say that’s one of the most exciting games they’ve been part of and I think it taught us a lot about ourselves, about our character, losing so badly in the first game and being up in the final, the U.S. coming back and taking the lead and for us not giving up.”

The game might be tactically conservative, but the players won’t hold anything else back when the Canadian women’s hockey team meets the United States on Saturday. The Canadian and American women square off in Burlington, Vt., in the first of up to eight meetings before the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, in February. A second exhibition game is scheduled for Oct. 17 in Boisbriand, Que. Canada and the U.S. have met in the final of all 15 women’s world championships with the Canadians holding a 10-5 record, but the U.S. winning four of the last five world titles. Canada is the three-time defending Olympic champion. Both teams are training full-time — Canada in Calgary and the U.S. in Bedford, Mass. — so Saturday’s game at the University of Vermont is the first chance for each country to see what the other has been up to. “I don’t think either team will expose every part of their game and won’t be at 100 per cent in every part of their game, but every time you get to play them it’s a great opportunity to learn about your own team and what you need to do to get better,” Canadian head coach Dan Church said. “I think any times these two teams get to play each other, I think emotion takes over and the passion for your national pride comes to the forefront and it becomes a battle. There’s a good amount of animosity between the play-
ers and ultra-competitiveness.” The four other exhibition games between the two countries are scheduled for Dec. 12 in Calgary, Dec. 20 in Grand Forks, N.D., Dec. 28 in St. Paul, Minn., and Dec. 30 in Toronto. Canada and the U.S. will also meet in the round robin and possibly again in the final at the annual Four Nations Cup in Lake Placid, N.Y., in November. The two countries don’t often play each other more than four times in a non-Olympic season. Canadian forward Caroline Ouellette doesn’t expect multiple meetings this winter will dull the rivalry. “When we face each other, we go really hard at one another,” the Montreal native said. “It’s going to be played very physical with a lot of passion. I really look forward to see where we are at this point in our preparation compared to them.” Forward Marie-Philip Poulin, who scored both of Canada’s goals in a 2-0 win over the U.S. in the 2010 Olympic final, is out for another two to four weeks with a sprained ankle she suffered in September. Forward Megan Agosta-Marciano will sit out Saturday’s game with what Church calls a lower-body injury, but he thought she may be ready to play in Boisbriand. Multiple games against the Americans means all three Canadian goalies will get their chances to face them. Since countries are allowed to take three goalies to the Winter Games, Edmonton’s Shannon Szabados, Charline Labonte of Boisbriand and Genevieve Lacasse of Kingston, Ont., already

Overton opens PGA Tour season with 64 at CordeValle
Two-time winner Ko files petition to turn pro
HAS ONE-SHOT LEAD OVER BRIAN HARMAN AFTER FIRST ROUND FRYS.COM OPEN BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SAN MARTIN, Calif. — Coming off his worst year, Jeff Overton opened the new PGA Tour season on a good note. Once he finally made a putt Thursday in the Frys.com Open, Overton felt as if he couldn’t miss. Over the last 11 holes at CordeValle, he made three birdie putts over 25 feet and a 20-foot eagle putt when his gamble paid off on the par-5 ninth. He finished with a tap-in birdie on the 18th for a 7-under 64 and a oneshot lead over Brian Harman. “It really helps if you can get off to a good start,” Overton said. “It would be great if we can continue this thing and keep it rolling.” Harman finished with back-toback birdies from short range and had eight birdies on his round. Kyle Stanley had a 66. The group at 4-under 67 included Michael Putnam, who won the Web. com Tour money title last season to earn full status, and Brooks Koepka, the most travelled player at the Frys. com Open. This is the fourth tour Koepka has played this year. He earned his European Tour card by winning three times on the Challenge Tour. He also played a Web.com Tour event, and the Florida State alum is headed to China in two weeks for the BMW Masters. Ryo Ishikawa, who had to earn his card back at the Web.com Tour Finals, opened with a 69. Hideki Matsuyama, one of three players at the Presidents Cup last week, had a 70. The PGA Tour season is starting in October instead of January for the first time in history. The official season ends next September at the Tour
Championship, although there will be a six-week break leading to the Tournament of Champions in Hawaii. Officially, it was the start of the 2013-14 season Thursday. It was different from previous “season openers” in Kapalua. The temperature was struggling to climb past 50 degrees when Bryce Molder, wearing rain pants to cope with the morning chill, hit the first shot of the year. He yanked it left and nearly couldn’t find it, which would have meant going back to the tee to his third short. The fairways weren’t 80 yards wide. And it wasn’t a tropical 80 degrees. Jhonattan Vegas felt even worse. He was on the putting green, in the third group, when he had to use the bathroom. He thought he had plenty of time. He was wrong. Vegas was a few seconds later to the tee box, meaning a two-shot penalty. His first swing of the new season technically was for birdie from 412 yards away. He made par, plus two shots for a double bogey. “I was just caught off guard,” he said. “It never crossed my mind I would be late to the tee. I made a mistake and I paid the price. It’s not an easy way to start the year” He opened with a 76. Overton, who remains the only American to play in the Ryder Cup without ever having won on the PGA Tour, had a year in which just about everything went wrong. He didn’t play in any of the majors for the first time since 2007. He was disqualified from Colonial when he thought he could use a training aid to practice putting when there was a delay at the turn. He opened with a 69 in the John Deere Classic and had to withdraw when he felt shooting pain in his right wrist. And he was the alternate who didn’t get in the PGA Championship, leading to a series of angry tweets
toward the PGA of America for not giving him an exemption to a guy who played in the Ryder Cup at Wales three years earlier. Overton said only that “everything is all good” when asked about his relationship with the PGA of America. He hopes the same can be said about his game this year, especially after spending the last few months moving to a stronger grip to alleviate recurring pain in his left wrist. It worked beautifully on a sunny day in the foothills south of San Jose, especially the baby cut he hit into 20 inches on the 18th. The most important shot he hit all day might have been a 6-foot putt for par on the seventh. Overton hit the ball so well on the first six holes that he had only one birdie attempt longer than 15 feet and missed everything. But he made the par putt on the seventh, and seeing the ball go into the hole was all it took to send him on his way. “Next I knew, I made everything,” he said. “I saw the ball go in the hole one time, and was just chipping and putting it in — just everything. It was just one of those days that went my way at the end.” He all had a gamble pay off, hitting 3-wood into the breeze from 244 yards to a green guarded by water. He aimed right and caught it perfectly with a draw, and the ball settled 20 feet away to set up eagle. DIVOTS: Nine players are still looking for their first birdie of the year. ... Alex Aragon came to the course Thursday morning as the first alternate expecting a long day of no golf. He got the word at breakfast that John Merrick had to withdraw, and he opened with a 68. ... Robert Allenby opened with a 68. It was the first time since the McGladrey Classic one year ago that he broke par in the opening round.
LPGA BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Amateur sensation Lydia Ko is turning pro and has asked the LPGA Tour to waive its age limit. The 16-year-old from New Zealand already is a two-time winner on the LPGA Tour — both wins at the Canadian Women’s Open — and last year became the youngest winner in LPGA history. She also contended at the Evian Championship last month in the year’s fifth and final major championship. The LPGA Tour confirmed that it received a petition from Ko asking that it waive its minimum age requirement of 18. LPGA Tour Commissioner Mike Whan was travelling from Asia on Thursday and not immediately available to comment. Whan, who two years ago granted such a petition to Lexi Thompson, has sole discretion whether Ko can join the tour early. The LPGA said Whan would be in contact with Ko and her family. Ko’s mother, Tina Hyon, told Golf Channel’s website Wednesday night in an email that her daughter would play as a pro in the LPGA Titleholders in November in Naples, Fla. She also might play in the Lorena Ochoa Invitational in Mexico. Born in South Korea, Ko moved to New Zealand when she was 6 and began taking lessons at Pupuke Golf Club in Auckland. She recently received the Mark H. McCormack Medal as the top-ranked female amateur for the third straight year. Ko would have earned nearly $1 million this year if she had been a pro. Michelle Wie was 15 when she turned pro, though she played a limited schedule and did not ask for LPGA Tour membership. Lexi Thompson was 16 when she won on the LPGA in 2011. Whan granted her petition to join before turning 18, though it did not take effect until the 2012 season and Thompson played her first round as a member the day before she turned 17.

Johnson happy to be back behind bench PORTLAND WINTERHAWKS GENERAL MANAGER AND COACH STAYED BUSY DURING WHILE SUSPENDED FOR THE 2012-13 SEASON Mike Johnston feels like he is back where he belongs. That’s not a comment on the suspension that banished the Portland Winterhawks general manager and coach from his Western Hockey League team’s bench for most of the 2012-13 season. It’s just a statement on who he is. “(Coaching) is in your blood when the pre-season starts until it finishes at the end of the year,” he said. “It’s just kind of that own ownership, being able to coach, being able to compete, and you miss that when you’re away from it, for sure, and it’s a good feeling to be back.” Heading into Saturday’s home game against the Kamloops Blazers, he has guided the defending WHL champions to a 3-31 record. Johnston was suspended last November after a league investigation determined the Winterhawks provided improper, undisclosed benefits that included free flights for players and parents. The team, which was also fined $200,000 and lost several draft picks, and league disputed the allegations publicly but Johnston ultimately accepted his punishment. He didn’t get mad. He got busy, even though he was prohibited from going into the team’s office or having any contact with players. “I tried to focus on what I could do rather than what I couldn’t do, and I could still evaluate older players or our team for the future, and I could evaluate players who were on our list and determine if they were ready to fit into our program or were a ways away,” he said. “I couldn’t watch our team, but I could watch the other teams.” Johnston watched games online and also ventured to numerous rinks to scout Winterhawk hopefuls playing at lower levels. He also attended major coaching clinics in Burnaby, B.C., where he was a speaker and attended sessions to get insight on his profession. “Any time you’re not coaching, like summer hockey, I always try and see if there’s some way I can improve and try and study what other teams are doing, what other coaches are doing, take a look at our team, the organization, to see if there’s any way to get an edge, to improve in what you’re doing,” he said. Johnston, a Dartmouth, N.S., native who is in his early 50s, has been trying to get an edge on the bench since he stopped playing university hockey and got into coaching while in his 20s. He joined the Winterhawks after serving in the NHL for almost a decade as an assistant coach with the Vancouver Canucks and Los Angeles Kings. He has also won several medals with Canadian junior and senior-age national teams and served as an assistant with Canada’s 1998 Oympic team in Nagano. His resume includes Canadian college coaching experience with the Camrose Kodiaks, a tenure with the University of New Brunswick and a stint as an assistant at the University of Calgary, where he obtained a masters degree in coaching science. He also co-authored the book, “Simply The Best — Insights and Strategies From Great Hockey Coaches.” After joining the Winterhawks early in the 2008-09 season, he guided the team to the playoffs for the first time in four years and built them into the powerhouse that won the WHL title last season. Former assistant Travis Green filled in as head coach before taking a job as head coach of the Canucks’ new AHL affiliate in Utica, N.Y. Although he was exiled from the club, Johnston took considerable satisfaction from the ac-
complishment. “Every year, we were making strides, we were taking steps and then last year we were able to break through,” he said. “I was extremely proud of the coaching staff, the players and the whole team on how we handled the steps that we’d been through the last four to five years — how they progressed, how they developed and how they finally pushed over that hurdle to win a WHL championship.” Now Johnston is setting his sights on a possible repeat and another
berth in the MasterCard Memorial Cup tournament with the bulk of the roster that prevailed last season. The Winterhawks lost seven players to graduation and promotion to the pro ranks. Defenceman Seth Jones, the fourth overall pick in this year’s NHL draft, has moved on to the Nashville Predators, while winger Ty Rattie, a St. Louis Blues prospect who placed third in the WHL’s scoring race with 48 goals and 62 assists, is now playing for Chicago Wolves of the AHL. Defenceman Tyler Wother-
spoon is also in the AHL, toiling for Calgary’s affiliate in Abbotsford, B.C. Portland still has 15 holdovers from the championship club. Among the returnees are Brendan Leipsic, who had 49 goals and 120 points last season. “It’s going to be challenging, it’s going to be difficult,” Johnston said of the effort to repeat. “But it wasn’t easy to do what we did the last couple years. There are a lot of good teams in the league. It’s a wellcoached league, a wellrun league and every
season there are five or six teams that are playing at a level where anybody could win it. “This year it looks like it’s even more wide open than that. But we’ve got a good nucleus back, we’ve got a good core group and I believe that we’ll have a chance to play (for a title).” And so will Johnston. He declined to discuss his suspension in detail, and a team spokesman noted the organization is moving on from it. Johnston also declined to indicate whether the Winterhawks have reviewed
or changed their recruiting procedures in wake of the suspension. But the club is treading carefully now that Johnston has been reinstated. “We’re making sure that everything we do is in conjunction with what is being allowed by the league,” said Johnston. “So we are making sure that (with) any grey area, any questions we have, we are checking with the league office first to make sure we’re in accordance with exactly how everything should be done.”

husband’s affair with his father’s hospice nurse, my hair is on fire! I am a licensed clinical social worker by profession and have been CEO of a large regional hospice for 27 years. In hospice, both the patient and family are one unit of care. Professional boundaries are important. This work is emotional and intimate by its nature. But sexual or personal relationships are never appropriate. Patients and families are in a vulnerable position. The supervision of that nurse and her ethical standards are absolutely unacceptable. “Broken” should ask for the administrator of that hospice program and make a formal complaint. If she does not get a response or resolution, she should make a complaint to the agency in her state that licenses and regulates hospice providers. She would be doing others a favor by not allowing this kind of behavior to continue. Any hospice that allows such a situation to continue unchecked should not be able to care for patients and their families. — I Am Appalled Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Ask The Dentist! by Dr. Michael Dolynchuk, DDS
Your Dental Fireman At Work For You! Dear Dr. D: What is the single most important thing I can do to keep my natural teeth as long as possible? A: In a nutshell – see me more often. Patients often say 'Nobody ever told me that before'. Fewer than half the population sees a dentist more than once in 5 years, unless something bothers them. They usually wait too long. Our bodies are very forgiving creatures, and will absorb a lot of grief before it manifests itself into full blown dental pain. I believe my task is more of a 'dental fireman'. People call me in to put out a raging fire – when it could have been prevented with the dental equivalent of smoke detectors. 1. Good oral health will have huge impact on your health. I am here as your dental advisor. 2. Everyone's dental needs are different. For example, simple blood thinners will dry up your saliva resulting in an incremental increase in plaque and tartar build up. This is a recipe for decay. This might mean more frequent hygiene visits to keep your teeth in good health. 3. If your mouth is out of balance because of one or more missing teeth, this can cause discomfort in chewing right up to migraine headaches. I won't simply treat tooth pain without analyzing the cause of it. There are many solutions – I can adjust your jaw to assist in this manner. 4. Treat your body with the same respect you treat your new car or truck, and your teeth will last years longer and give you far less grief. I see people who wouldn't dream of driving more than 5,000 km in their vehicle without an oil change – yet they sometimes go years between dental checkups. 5. Finally – let me help you plan to maximize your dental insurance. It 'reboots' itself once a year with no carry-forward if you haven't used it.
Utah man blames bathroom emergency for high-speed chase LOGAN, Utah — A Utah man has been sentenced to seven days in jail after a high-speed chase that he blamed on a bathroom emergency. Thirty-nine-year-old Jeffrey Laub told a judge that he ate something that upset his stomach and was racing to get to a rest area in Logan Canyon. The Herald Journal reports first Judge Thomas Willmore called the explanation “one of the worst stories” he ever heard. The judge pointed out that Laub passed several outhouses while he led a Utah Highway Patrol trooper on a chase last spring that reached 111 mph.
Man bit by rattlesnake while helping turtle cross the road MIAMI — A man was bitten by a rattlesnake while trying to help a stranded turtle across Interstate 75 in South Florida. Miami Dade Fire Rescue reports that the man was placing the turtle into the grass by the side of the road when the venomous Eastern Diamondback rattlesnake bit his hand. The Miami Herald reports that a friend immediately drove the 24-year-old man to a nearby hospital, where he was being treated with anti-venom. Later that evening, the venom was only affecting the victim’s left arm.
Dog that crashed race wins medal EVANSVILLE, Ind. — An Indiana dog that became an Internet sensation after crashing a half marathon has won a medal — and an appointment with a veterinarian to nip his wandering ways in the bud. The chocolate Labrador retriever named Boogie ran most of the 13.1 miles in Saturday’s Evansville event and then was taken to Animal Control. Owner Jerry Butts tells the Evansville Courier & Press that the 100-pound dog slipped his leash. It was his fourth escape. Butts says Boogie now has a microchip and an appointment to be neutered.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Concerns over your health and your lifestyle habits will certainly require you to slow down and to strategize your routine through careful, practical planning. Steps you undertake now will be in effect for the long-haul, so plan wisely. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You feel that despite all the heavy energy around you that is weighting you down, you have someone special you can rely on. It’s a great feeling knowing that your need for self-expression and for individualism are being recognized and acknowledged for. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You need your home as a means of refugee or to escape reality somehow. You long to be more connected to your inner world now rather than face the harsh realities. The past has settled into your present in most subtle ways. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your ability to tap into other people’s intentions has a marvellous effect on those around you. It takes only a few words of yours that can touch and produce a powerful influence over others. Your mental activity is extremely keen. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You
may experience a strong attachment over your belongings. Certain items are hard to let go as they have tremendous emotional significance to you. You see them as your security blanket which makes you feel warm and protected. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Objectivity and rational thinking may become a bit of a challenge to you now. Try not to absorb other people’s problems or concerns as you have your own baggage of issues to deal with. You will be prone to moodiness. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You may find yourself a bit lost in translation today. Past resentments seem to hunt you or overwhelm you in the present. A trip to the subconscious world brings back melancholic memories. Try not to become too morbid. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Today you may want to catch up with some old buddies and share the latest news. A friend of yours may go through an emotional crisis. Your presence may be needed more than just your mental support or empathy. Astro Doyna is an internationally syndicated astrologer and columnist. Her column appears daily in the Advocate.

Olds wastewater starts flowing
SOUTH RED DEER REGIONAL WASTEWATER PROJECT FINALLY TAKES OFF
FRONT Organizers are calling the ninth United Way Soup Luncheon presented by the Hub on Ross in downtown Red Deer a huge success. Thanks to businesses and individuals who supported the effort, $833 was raised for the United Way of Central Alberta. The event included a new feature this year: two satellite soup fundraisers. The Hub’s next healthy food event is Oct. 30 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., featuring homemade chili in handmade pottery bowls to support the local Gramma Link-Africa chapter. The chapter strives to help African grandmothers raising children orphaned by HIVAIDS.
BUZZ FOR HOUSE
BY RENÉE FRANCOEUR ADVOCATE STAFF The Red Deer treatment plant is now receiving a portion of Olds wastewater as the multimillion-dollar South Red Deer Regional Wastewater project finally takes off after a few construction hiccups. Somewhere between 1,500 and 2,000 cubic metres of wastewater is travelling from Olds to Red Deer. It’s one of the phases of the 100-plus-km project that will pipe wastewater to the city from Olds, Bowden, Innisfail, Penhold and the counties of Mountain View and Red Deer. The main goal of the undertaking is to protect the Red Deer River and water system, which supplies water to more than 200,000 people. It will also clean wastewater to a higher standard than normally achieved in smaller communities. Dennis Cooper, chair of the South Red Deer Regional Wastewater Commission (the body driving the project) said it will
most likely be one of the largest pressurized pipelines in North America when it’s done. “It’s state of the art and it’s going to be able to move effluent and look after growth for the next 20 years for all those communities,” said Cooper, who is also mayor of Penhold. The Olds line was a few months behind schedule. After detailed testing, crews found a series of faults, mainly with the leaking couplers that link sections of the line together. “Those were repaired by the contractor and we continued to do testing. We started by moving 500 cubic metres of potable water down the line and from there we went to 500 cubes of effluent and then 1,000 and 1,500 and so on,” Cooper said. The Olds treatment plant was reaching its limit and “if you limit sewage treatment, you definitely limit growth,” Cooper said. “This will take the pressure off the Olds system and ... with the additional monies we have now to finish the project, that means the towns do not have to go out and borrow. In Penhold, that will basically save a 30 per
cent increase in sewage charges that would have to have been added on to the residents’ bills,” he said. The project is estimated to be worth $132 million. The province will put in 10 per cent of the funding, distributed in segments over the next two years. “Because we’re going to finish the project sooner than 2015, we’re going to have to do some bridge financing,” Cooper said. The commission has two more lines to finish and one more lift station to put in at Penhold, which is set to be tendered at the end of November. They estimate at the very latest construction will be done by March 2015. There will be approximately 9,000 to 10,000 cubic metres of wastewater pumped through the system a day after it’s completed. As the line has been developed to handle almost triple that figure, Cooper said the commission is looking into the possibly of diverting more than 2,000 cubic metres — the cap — from Olds. email@example.com

Patti Durand, left, and Brenda Muntain of Blackfalds take in the display of colourful quilts on exhibit at the Flatiron Museum in Lacombe on Thursday. An array of contemporary and traditional style quilts crafted by local quilters and fabric artists are on display until Nov. 2.
More students are in desks across each of the six Central Alberta school divisions, even if some of those desks are now in what were once staff rooms or libraries. For the third consecutive year, Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools is dealing with an increase in enrolment of approximately five per cent. The division now encompasses over 7,700 students after a gain of 351 pupils over last fall. Its schools are full and waiting lists are common across the division, urban and rural. It is a good problem to have, said the division’s board chair. “We sometimes think increases are little blips, but because we’ve had steady, roughly five per cent increases over the last three years, we see that as a very strong indication that people really like our Catholic faith-based education that we offer here in Red Deer and surrounding area,” said Adriana LaGrange. To deal with some of that growth, the division will hope to add six new modular classrooms to its highest growth schools — two each for Notre Dame High School, Camille J. Lerouge School and St. Francis of Assisi Middle School — by next fall.

Candidate expresses regret for tweet of ballot INCIDENT BY WIELER AT ADVANCE POLL CRYSTAL RHYNO ADVOCATE STAFF A city council candidate made a rookie mistake by tweeting a picture of his ballot at the advance poll on Saturday. Jonathan Wieler, 28, tweeted “#RedDeer Election Ballot. Vote Wieler 5th up from the bottom!” and attached a photo of his marked ballot on Saturday afternoon.
A few hours later, city returning officer Frieda McDougall caught wind of the tweet. She left a message on Wieler’s voicemail asking him to take down the tweet, which he did. In a prepared statement, Wieler said Thursday, “The other day in an enthusiastic effort to communicate my candidacy for city council, I tweeted a picture and I truly regret doing so. I intended to exercise my freedom of speech. I intended my actions to be no different than putting up signs or handing out pamphlets. I respect the rules that are in place to ensure the democratic process is fair.” “Shortly afterwards I took the picture down and sought legal counsel. I have been
informed by legal counsel that since my intent was not to replicate a ballot, trick people or in any way commit election fraud I am innocent of any wrongdoing.” Wieler said he hopes “his honesty in this matter is an indication of his personal virtue.” Under the Local Authorities Election Act, no person shall print or distribute or cause to be printed or distributed in any advertisement, handbill, placard, poster, a form of ballot printed by the returning officer, indicating or showing it to be marked for any candidate or candidates.

Chase accused denied bail Man pleads guilty Bail has been denied for a Red Deer man who is alleged to have led multiple police departments on a chase through Central Alberta. Weston Kleigh Pickford, 22, will remain in custody after a lengthy show cause hearing regarding his potential judicial interim release. Crown prosecutor Jillian Brown detailed the allegations facing Pickford to Red Deer provincial court Judge Gordon Yake on Thursday. Pickford faces charges that include two counts of attempted murder, assaulting a police officer, flight from police and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle. He has also been charged with possession of break-in instruments and breach of probation. Lacombe Police Service said two officers narrowly escaped injury after trying to arrest a suspect at a Lacombe residence at about 11:30 p.m. on Sept. 4. Police said as officers approached the residence, a male got into his vehicle, revved his engine and allegedly aimed the vehicle at two officers. A high-speed chase ensued, leaving Lacombe and heading into Red Deer. Red Deer RCMP deployed a spike
belt and blew out the vehicle’s tires. The vehicle travelled another four km before hitting a curb and a tree. Police arrested a suspect in what they described as a high-risk takedown. Defence counsel Paul Moreau, of Edmonton, broke down Pickford’s past problems, his struggle with addiction and his diagnosed bipolar disorder, anxiety disorder and attention deficit disorder. Moreau said Pickford would be able to provide $2,000 cash bond and would be able to gain employment from two different sources. In the end, Yake denied bail, saying he was not satisfied that Pickford could not maintain conditions of a release, which Moreau said should include abstinence from intoxication substances, random drug and alcohol testing and psychological evaluation with recommended treatment and therapy. Yake said he was quite concerned Pickford’s addictions would take over again. The matter was adjourned to Nov. 7 in Red Deer provincial court.
to Fas Gas threats
The man accused of threatening to hurt a Fas Gas clerk, just weeks after an employee at the same location was shot in the hands and face, has pleaded guilty. Mitchell Brunet, 27, pleaded guilty to uttering threats on Thursday in Red Deer provincial court. The Crown withdrew the robbery charge as a result of the plea. He has spent the last 11 days in custody and was sentenced to time served after his plea. On Sept. 21, police were called to the West Park Fas Gas for a reported robbery. Crown prosecutor Jillian Brown said the clerk and Brunet had a verbal altercation relating to another customer. That customer, Karla Pittman, had stolen a pair of lighters. She pleaded guilty to a theft under $5,000 on Oct. 3. Brown said the clerk mistakenly thought Pittman was with Brunet and demanded Brunet grab Pittman in relation to the lighter theft. A verbal altercation ensued and escalated to the point that Brunet threatened to return and beat the clerk. This took place two weeks after a different employee was shot in the hands and face during a robbery at the same gas station and Brown said the recent incident had the clerk on edge. Brunet told the court he was not aware of the incident and if he had known he would have held his tongue. He also apologized for wasting the court’s time with such stupidity.

facing life in prison. Christopher Martin Fleig, 29, believes a new trial is warranted because of a comment made during his 2012 trial by Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Kirk Sisson. Fleig’s counsel Peter Royal told the appeal court in Calgary on Tuesday that in his judgment, Sisson was wrong to say Fleig was not believable because he had a personal interest in the case and had a reason to be dishonest. Royal argued that because of this, Fleig’s evidence was discarded. Fleig was convicted on May 30, 2012, and sentenced to life in prison with no chance for parole for 25 years in a 2009 shooting in Red Deer’s Inglewood neighbourhood of a rival drug dealer and gang member. Fleig ordered the shooting of Brandon Neil Prevey, 29 on April 5, 2009. By walkie talkie, Fleig told another individual to shoot Prevey while he sat in his vehicle outside an Inglewood home.
New street link opens in Olds Politicians from all three levels of government gathered on Thursday to celebrate the opening of new street link in Olds. The project was completed this summer and provides a connection between 51st Avenue and Hwy 27 (46th Street). It provides a direct link to Olds’s historic town centre and a growing commercial area and is expected to benefit residents, businesses and tourists. The $320,380 project was funded through the
federal Gas Tax Fund and Chinook’s Edge School Division donated land. The province participated through its Municipal Sustainability Initiative funding. Before the road could be completed, a former school building had to be removed. Sustainable recycling techniques were used to reuse 85 per cent of the construction material, some of which became the base for the new road. Among those at the ceremony were Mayor Judy Dahl, Wildrose MP Blake Richards and Alberta International and Intergovernmental Relations Minister Cal Dallas.
Gas service restored after outage More than 90 per cent of all relights have been completed after a gas outage hit a number of neighbourhoods in south Red Deer on Tuesday morning. The outage affected 4,500 ATCO Gas customers in the Bower, Sunnybrook South, Lancaster, Inglewood and Vanier Woods neighbourhoods, Petrolia Park, Waskasoo Trailer Park, Clearview Industrial and Gasoline Alley. A few rural customers south and east of the city were affected as well. An ATCO spokesperson said company representatives have made two to three visits to all of the remaining homes that have not yet had their gas restored, but residents have not been home. The spokesperson said attempts will continue in the next few days to contact the homeowners. An investigation into what caused the outage will follow after all customers are relit.

TWEET: Raised questions If a person was found to have contravened the act, he or she could net a fine of not more than $10,000 or six months in jail. McDougall said it is her job to protect the integrity of the election. McDougall said she asked the candidate to take down the tweet because it raised questions about the election process. In Nova Scotia, three people are facing charges under the Elections Act for allegedly taking pictures at the ballot box. McDougall said the Nova Scotia legislation clearly says one cannot take a recording device into a voting station. She said there’s an opportunity to revisit it again in light of the new digital age. “If in fact things like this are not the intent of what they want the legislation to say then we need some clarity on it,” said McDougall. email@example.com

Changes in the funding model for modulars announced as part of this year’s provincial budget though, requiring school divisions to cover half the costs of transportation and installation of the units, mean such an order could cost the division hundreds of thousands of dollars. “We’re hopeful that the province will revisit how they are funding the modulars,” said LaGrange, adding that the division does have some reserves it could tap into, though such a situation would not be ideal. Because Notre Dame High School is already at its limit for attachable modulars, two more, if approved, would be apart from the school, east of the main structure. The school was designed for 1,200 students; 1,509 are enrolled this year. The division is hoping the province will be announcing funding for a new Catholic high school in Red Deer in the fall. Red Deer Public School Division’s growth rate, meanwhile, was about one per cent. With a net gain of 123 students for 2013-14, the division is now home to 10,511 pupils. Superintendent Piet Langstraat said growth is consistent across the city’s schools, with the increases most dramatic over the last few years. “The challenge for the new board is going to be infrastructure needs and how to address that with Alberta Education,” said Langstraat. Both Red Deer divisions will have new elementary schools opening for the 2014-15 school year. Chinook’s Edge School Division was projecting a decline of about 100 students this year, but student numbers are actually up 28 to 10,806 in 2013-14. Superintendent Kurt Sacher said the downward trend was expected due to declining rural demographics, but growth in Sylvan Lake, Penhold and Carstairs has pushed enrolment totals up. The board will be writing a letter to government ministers and the Sylvan Lake municipal government, indicating the pressing need for a new school for the town. Sacher said there have been stresses in the town for a few years. “Those stresses are just getting more significant this year as we turn libraries and staff rooms and music rooms into classroom space. As we do that it just becomes more and more difficult for teachers and students inside the building,” he said. Wolf Creek Public Schools as well was projecting a decline of about 140 students this year, but is actually up nine students overall to 7,263. Schools in Blackfalds saw the largest enrolment increases in the division. Wild Rose Public Schools also is exhibiting a modest increase, with 5,135 students enrolled in September, up 14 from the same month in 2012. A gentle decline was expected. And Clearview School Division is up 21 students to 2,446. The largest increase is in pre-kindergarten programming, and Coronation School saw the biggest jump in student enrolments. firstname.lastname@example.org

BlackBerry co-founders looking at potential takeover bid MIKE LAZARIDIS AND DOUGLAS FREGIN HAVE A GOAL OF STABILIZING AND ULTIMATELY REINVENTING THE COMPANY BY THE CANADIAN PRESS BlackBerry co-founders Mike Lazaridis and Douglas Fregin are looking at making a potential takeover bid for the troubled smartphone maker (TSX:BB). According to documents filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Thursday, the two are “interested in pursuing a joint bid” with “the goal of stabilizing and ultimately reinventing the company.” The filing with the regulator said Lazaridis and Fregin are “considering all available options with respect to their holdings of the shares, including, without limitation, a potential acquisition of all the outstanding shares of the issuer that they do not currently own, either by themselves or with other interested investors.” No financial details of any potential offer were included in the filing. BlackBerry has struggled this year as sales of its latest smartphones failed to catch fire. In August, the Waterloo, Ont., company launched a strategic review to explore its options including the possible sale or break up of its
operations. Fairfax Financial (TSX:FFH), BlackBerry’s largest shareholder, has made a conditional takeover bid worth US$9 per share and values the company at US$4.7 billion. BlackBerry shares climbed five cents to close at C$8.49 on the Toronto Stock Exchange. Carmi Levy, an independent technology analyst, said from an investor’s perspective, it was “nothing but good news” that Lazaridis appeared to be seriously interested in making an offer for BlackBerry. “The worst case scenario for BlackBerry was they would hold a sale and nobody would come, now clearly the lineup is starting to form,” he said. “It is still a small lineup, but a lineup all the same.” Together, Lazaridis and Fregin own roughly an eight per cent stake in BlackBerry, while Fairfax holds about 10 per cent. Lazaridis served as president, cochief executive and co-chairman of BlackBerry before he stepped aside in January 2012. Fregin helped Lazaridis found the company formerly known as

CANADA-EU TRADE DEAL
Quit talking and get it done, business leaders urge BY THE CANADIAN PRESS
Photo by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
People walk outside International Monetary Fund (IMF) building in Washington, where meetings of the IMF and World Bank have started. Global financial leaders have been sounding loud warnings about the possibility of a U.S. debt default as well as potential damage from the partial government shutdown.
Severe damage expected if U.S. government defaults BUT THE WORLD STILL BELIEVES THE U.S. WILL FIND A WAY OUT OF DEBT LIMIT CRISIS: EU BANK CHIEF BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK — European Central Bank head Mario Draghi says a U.S. government debt default would cause “severe damage” to the American and global economies — but that the rest of the world doesn’t believe it will happen. “The world still does not believe that the United States will not find a way out of this,” Draghi said in response to a question after a speech Thursday at the Economic Club of New York. President Barack Obama and Republicans in the U.S. Congress are at loggerheads over legislation to raise the U.S. debt ceiling so the government can keep paying its debts past this month. “There are two types of situation that we have to keep in
mind,” Draghi said. “Firstly, an agreement is found but late, and there may be an accident in between. “Clearly the market’s response will depend on what type of accident. It depends very much on what sort of no-payment happens.” He went on to add: “The second situation is one where this standoff last several months, or several weeks. In that case it’s probably safe to say that this would cause severe damage to the U.S. economy and the world.” U.S. debt securities are traded and held as safe investments throughout the global financial system and many officials and market participants say a failure to pay when they come due would cause serious disruption. In his speech, Draghi said the eurozone economy will stay “sub-
dued and uneven” for a while and emphasized that the bank has room to cut interest rates further to help growth. Analysts say Draghi wants markets to know that the bank is nowhere near withdrawing its stimulus efforts, unlike the U.S. Federal Reserve. The Fed’s discussion of ending its bond-purchase stimulus has unsettled markets around the globe. The economy in the 17 European Union member countries that use the euro as their currency grew 0.3 per cent in the second quarter, beginning a modest recovery after six straight quarters of decline. The ECB has kept its benchmark rate at a record low of 0.5 per cent, despite high unemployment.
OTTAWA — Business leaders on both sides of the Atlantic are urging Prime Minister Stephen Harper and European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso to hurry up and put pen to paper on a Canada-EU free trade deal. The talks have dragged on for four years now, with both sides blaming the other for the delay. But now a number of influential business leaders have a simple message for the two leaders: stop talking and start trading. “It’s left the negotiators’ table. It’s now on the decision-makers’ table, and one of two things happens at this stage,” John Manley, president of the Canadian Council of Chief Executives, said in an interview Thursday. “Either the necessary accommodations are made to finalize a deal, or it just goes sideways and everybody forgets about it.” Manley is one of 10 business representatives from Canada and Europe who signed a letter sent Thursday to Harper and Barroso. They say they want a deal that includes full access to government procurement markets, at both the national and provincial or regional levels. The agreement should also cover intellectual property, they say, particularly in the life sciences industry. And they want it to open agricultural and industrial markets. “Great progress has been made, narrowing the outstanding questions to a handful of politically sensitive issues,” the letter says. “While we recognize that for these outstanding issues choices at the highest levels are required to ensure a balanced deal, we encourage both negotiating parties to strive for comprehensive and ambitious solutions that benefit economies on both sides of the Atlantic. “The EU and Canada must stay focused on the bigger picture and the overall gains of $30 billion annually in the bilateral commercial relationship with a successful conclusion to the CETA.” Beef and pork had been among the biggest sticking points, but the two sides recently reached a tentative settlement. It’s unclear precisely which issues still stand in the way of a deal. Earlier this year, an EU trade spokesman took the unusual step of blaming Canada for holding up the negotiations. Harper and his Conservative government shot back, saying they would not sign any deal that wasn’t in Canada’s best interests. There has also been some concern that Canadian and European negotiators could put their talks on the back burner when the EU starts separate free trade talks with the United States. With a federal election two years away, Harper’s Conservative government faces political pressure to sign a deal with the Europeans to help burnish its economic credentials. Politics aside, Manley says the importance of getting a Canada-EU free trade deal can’t be underscored enough.

The S&P/TSX composite index ran up 164.08 points to 12,894.41 after House speaker John Boehner said Republicans are offering legislation that will allow for a temporary increase in the debt ceiling. New York indexes had their second best day so far this year as the Dow Jones industrials surged 323.09 points to 15,126.07, the Nasdaq shot up 82.97 points to 3,760.75 and the S&P 500 index rose 36.16 points to 1,692.56. Boehner said the proposal involves extending the government’s ability to borrow money through Nov. 22 — but only if President Barack Obama agrees to negotiate over ending the partial government shutdown and a longer-term increase in the debt ceiling. Under the Republican plan, the partial government shutdown would continue. But that is a secondary issue for traders and Boehner said that issue would be discussed at a White House meeting later Thursday after the markets close. The Canadian dollar slipped 0.02 of a cent to 96.19 cents US. The strong gains followed a string of declines that reflected a growing sense of unease as the U.S. heads toward an Oct. 17 deadline when the government starts to run out of money to pay creditors. Markets have been under pressure since Oct. 1 when a budget impasse resulted in a partial shutdown of the U.S. government.

BLACKBERRY: Conducting review Lazaridis declined to comment when contacted Thursday. Analysts say the Fairfax offer is hinged on several conditions that make it far from a done deal. Levy said the interest by Lazaridis will prompt Fairfax to move more decisively to get its consortium and financing in order. “It doesn’t fundamentally change things for Fairfax, but it certainly does raise the temperature and give it a much harder deadline than it had before,” he said. The Fairfax consortium is expected to complete its due diligence by Nov. 4. Until then, BlackBerry is allowed

BlackBerry said Thursday it was “conducting a robust and thorough review of strategic alternatives.” “We do not intend to disclose further developments with respect to the process until we approve a specific transaction or otherwise conclude the review of strategic alternatives,” BlackBerry said in a statement. Reports have suggested other companies possibly interested in taking a run at BlackBerry may include Google, Cisco, SAP, Microsoft and Cisco. BlackBerry chief executive Thorsten Heins is working through what he’s described as a three-stage plan to return the company to profitability. The company recently announced a plan to cut about 40 per cent of its global workforce, or 4,500 jobs, as a way to save money. On Thursday, it announced it was closing its offices in the Halifax area, eliminating more than 300 jobs as part of an effort to cut costs.
Indian finance minister defends local-sourcing rules inhibiting Wal-Mart expansion plans BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON — India defended Thursday government regulations designed to protect local businesses that have prompted U.S. retail giant WalMart to hold back on opening superstores there. Finance Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram told a Washington thinktank that the rules weren’t too restrictive. He said he remained confident that one or two multi-brand retailers would enter the Indian market in the fiscal year ending March 2014. He did not name them. In a politically sensitive move, India last year gave the green light for international companies to open multibrand retail stores, but to allay concerns about the impact on small traders and family-run shops, those companies would have to obtain 30 per cent of their products from local small and medium-sized businesses. So far, no large foreign chains have taken the plunge. On Wednesday, WalMart Stores said the local-sourcing regulations mean it cannot move forward with its plans to expand into retail in India — a blow to the government’s efforts to attract foreign investment to a market of 1.2 billion people. Wal-Mart already runs a wholesaling joint venture in India. Chidambaram alluded to the political sensitivities in his comments at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. “I sincerely hope that an investor will look at the practical difficulties that a policymaker has in India and accept policies as they are made and as
they are, rather than hope for the ideal policy,” he said, without mentioning a specific company. He said experiences in the auto and defence sectors, where foreign companies had teamed up with local companies and helped build their local production capacities, showed that requirements on local content could be satisfied. The government of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has sought to ease foreign investment restrictions and institute other reforms to spur the economy which has slowed in the past two years after two decades of rapid growth. Chidambaram said in the first quarter of the current fiscal year, GDP growth was just 4.4 per cent. But he predicted growth for the full year at between 5.0 and 5.5 per cent, citing the impact of reform measures, export growth, and good rains that would boost farm output. The International Monetary Fund on Tuesday, however, slashed its forecast for India’s growth by 1.8 percentage points to 3.8 per cent this year. Among the concerns weighing on India’s economy have been expectations the U.S. will pull back its loose monetary policy that has poured funds into emerging markets. Chidambaram, who will join annual U.S.-India finance talks this weekend, said that a May announcement that the Federal Reserve would begin to reduce its bond-buying program had taken other countries by surprise, but the consequent postponing of the move has buoyed hopes of recovery in the global economy.

Spacecraft slingshots way to Jupiter

NASA SPACECRAFT RUNS INTO PROBLEM; CAUSE UNKNOWN BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES — NASA’s Jupiter-bound spacecraft hit a snag Wednesday soon after it used Earth as a gravity slingshot to hurtle toward the outer solar system, but mission managers said it’s on course to arrive at the giant planet in 2016. Juno emerged from Earth’s shadow in safe mode, a state that spacecraft are programmed to go into when there’s some trouble. Despite the problem, “we believe we are on track as planned to Jupiter,” said project manager Rick Nybakken of the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which manages the $1.1 billion mission. Engineers continued to diagnose the issue, which occurred after Juno whipped around Earth in a momentum-gathering flyby. Up until Wednesday, Juno had been in excellent health. While in safe mode, it can communicate with ground controllers, but its activities are limited. Previous missions to the outer solar system have used Earth as a celestial springboard since there’s no rocket powerful enough to make a direct flight. The Galileo spacecraft buzzed by Earth twice in the 1990s en route to Jupiter, the solar system’s largest planet located 484 million miles from the sun. Launched in 2011, Juno flew beyond the orbit of Mars, Earth’s closest planetary neighbour, before looping back toward our home planet for a quick visit. Wednesday’s rendezvous boosted Juno’s speed from 78,000 mph relative to the sun to 87,000 mph — enough momentum to cruise past the asteroid belt to Jupiter, where it should arrive in 2016. The solar-powered, windmill-shaped spacecraft slipped into Earth’s shadow as planned, but engineers were puzzled by the too little data it sent back afterward. At closest approach, it hurtled 350 miles above the ocean off the coast of South Africa. Since the 1970s, spacecraft have circled or flown past Jupiter including the Voyagers, Pioneers, Galileo, Ulysses, Cassini and, most recently, the New Horizons barrelling toward Pluto. Missions have beamed back stunning views of Jupiter’s trademark Great Red Spot, a raging hurricane-like storm, and its many moons.
Study calculates years when temperatures go off the charts THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Starting in about a decade, Kingston, Jamaica, will probably be off-thecharts hot — permanently. Other places will soon follow. Singapore in 2028. Mexico City in 2031. Cairo in 2036. Phoenix and Honolulu in 2043. And eventually the whole world in 2047. A new study on global warming pinpoints the probable dates for when cities and ecosystems around the world will regularly experience hotter environments the likes of which they have never seen before. And for dozens of cities, mostly in the tropics, those dates are a generation or less away. “This paper is both innovative and sobering,” said Oregon State University professor Jane Lubchenco, former head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, who was not involved in the study. To arrive at their projections, the researchers used weather observations, computer models and other data to calculate the point at which every year from then on will be warmer than the hottest year ever recorded over the last 150 years. For example, the world as a whole had its hottest year on record in 2005. The new study,
published Wednesday in the journal Nature, says that by the year 2047, every year that follows will probably be hotter than that record-setting scorcher. Eventually, the coldest year in a particular city or region will be hotter than the hottest year in its past. Study author Camilo Mora and his colleagues said they hope this new way of looking at climate change will spur governments to do something before it is too late. “Now is the time to act,” said another study co-author, Ryan Longman. Mora forecasts that the unprecedented heat starts in 2020 with Manokwa, Indonesia. Then Kingston, Jamaica. Within the next two decades, 59 cities will be living in what is essentially a new climate, including Singapore, Havana, Kuala Lumpur and Mexico City. By 2043, 147 cities — more than half of those studied — will have shifted to a hotter temperature regime. The first U.S. cities to feel that would be Honolulu and Phoenix, followed by San Diego and Orlando, Florida, in 2046. New York and Washington will get new climates around 2047, with Los Angeles, Detroit, Houston, Chicago, Seattle, Austin and Dallas a bit later.

RED DEER ADVOCATE Friday, Oct. 11, 2013 C7 flected Lee Harvey Oswald’s bullets. Gilmore is moved less by the idea of saving agent Walters from himself — or by the possibility of romance with Marti — than the prospect of a sweet exclusive for the newspaper. He agrees to keep the whole episode off the record in order to participate, but can he keep such a promise? It’s a promising plot, especially as a cultural take on the event that rocked the country a half-century ago. Yet Lehrer is slow to get it off the ground — recording the Walters family’s reaction to the assassination is not at all compelling — and the payoff is thin. A bigger point about America then and now, how we deal with honour, or even the “what if’s” in our own lives is too understated if not absent. Two years ago, Stephen King turned his own “what if” on the Kennedy assassination into a doorstop of a bestseller, 11/ 22/63. Under 200 pages, Lehrer’s novel is a quarter the size of King’s — and far lighter in all the ways that count. Douglass K. Daniel is the author of Tough as Nails: The Life and Films of Richard Brooks (University of Wisconsin Press)
STORY FROM PAGE C6
TOP: What if bubble on car roof was used? What if the Secret Service agent who decided not to equip the presidential limousine with its bubble top ended up blaming himself for John F. Kennedy’s assassination? Lehrer comes to the question naturally because, on Nov. 22, 1963, he was a young Dallas newspaper reporter covering the president’s visit. In fact, he asked about the Plexiglas covering as the security detail prepared for the day’s events. In Lehrer’s 21st novel, Dallas newspaper reporter Jack Gilmore looks back at the events of that awful day from the standpoint of five years. It’s 1968, and college student Marti Walters enlists Gilmore to help save her father from the depression that’s killing him. He’s been tortured by the belief that the Plexiglas covering he decided not to install would have de-

Gordie MacKeeman and his Rhythm Boys perform on Saturday, Oct. 19, at the Elk’s Lodge in Red Deer.
Showmanship sets folk group apart BY LANA MICHELIN ADVOCATE STAFF
Musicians typically leave small islands to find work, but the opposite is true of Gordie MacKeeman and Mark Geddes, who found their calling on Prince Edward Island. MacKeeman, a step-dancing fiddler from Nova Scotia, and Geddes, a drummer and stand-up bassist from New Brunswick, both became entranced by P.E.I.’s small but lively music scene. “It’s a mecca for music. It’s very much a cultural thing,” said Geddes. He and MacKeeman struck up various other musical partnerships while playing house parties and community halls around Charlottetown until the chemistry finally gelled three years ago between them, guitarist Peter Cann and bassist/banjo player Thomas Webb, who are both of P.E.I. The four musicians have been gathering steam — and acclaim — ever since as Gordie MacKeeman and his Rhythm Boys. The Celtic folk group that performs on Saturday, Oct. 19, at the Elk’s Lodge in Red Deer won a 2012 Galaxie Supernova Award at the Ottawa Folk Festival for outstanding live performance. CBC Radio host Tom Power also called the Rhythm Boys his “best discovery band” at the East Coast Music Awards. But it’s the group’s showmanship that’s gained as much attention as its musicianship across Canada
and Western Europe. “Gordie’s dancing sets us apart — it’s a great selling point,” said Geddes, who noted the long-legged MacKeeman began step-dancing at the age of six, long before picking up the fiddle. His free-style moves also appear to incorporate clogging and a whole lot of personal style. “They call him crazy legs because his legs are like rubber bands — people have never seen anything like it,” said Geddes, who believes audiences love to watch MacKeeman’s feet, perhaps even more than his fiddling prowess. Bluegrass vocals are also becoming a trademark of the multi-instrumental band that mixes traditional songs and instrumentals, such as Old Joe Clark and Ragtime Cowboy Joe, with original tunes and reworked covers. After releasing a debut, self-titled CD in 2010, the group put out Pickin’ N Clickin’ earlier this year. The album is described as “traditionally inspired downeast music from Price Edward Island,” but a Saskatchewan fiddling legend also makes a posthumous appearance. Geddes explained that King Ganam of Swift Current was a Canadian fiddling sensation in the 1950s. The Rhythm Boys are tipping their hats to him by rolling two of his tunes — the King Ganam Special and Kiley’s Reel — into a medley of sorts. It’s called King Ganam Style only because the Korean Gangnam Style video was all the rage when the album was being recorded, he added with a laugh. Heroes of the Sidewalk is the band’s traditional
Celtic version of a rock song by the P.E.I. band Two Hours Traffic, while O’Halloran Road is a song that’s been passed down through generations of Webb’s family. “It’s about a road in P.E.I. that’s dear to his heart,” explained Geddes. Cann wrote a few of the new tunes, including Working Title, “about doing what you love and what makes you feel good and doing it all day,” said Geddes. MacKeeman penned Jim’s Lament, about an old friend who passed away during his childhood, and Gonna Get Out, a happy song about high-tailing it out of a stale relationship. “I believe there’s some fact and fiction in there,” said Geddes, who looks forward to getting a Red Deer audience onto its feet. “We love it when people dance.” While it was P.E.I.’s rich music scene that brought the band together, Geddes said the Rhythm Boys, regretfully, don’t play many local gigs anymore because of constant touring, including another planned trip through the U.K., as well as Australia. Interestingly, England, Scotland and Ireland love Canadian Celtic musicians, he added, because “we’ve preserved some of the music that they’ve lost over the years.” Tickets for this Central Music Festival Societysponsored concert are $30, including dinner from centralmusicfest.com. Dinner is at 6:30 p.m. the show is at 8 at 6315 Horn St. in Red Deer. firstname.lastname@example.org
Tom Hanks shines in Captain Phillips OSCAR ATTENTION FOR SEAFARER VERSUS PIRATES ANTAGONISTS Captain Phillips 3.5 stars (out of four) Rated 14A The high seas drama Captain Phillips is a survival saga that raises the pulse and tweaks the conscience. Directed by Paul Greengrass, who makes smart thrillers, and starring Tom Hanks in his best role in years, this isn’t simply a tale of heroism and adventure. There is anxiety on both sides of the gun, as resolve slams into harsh reality. We certainly cheer on Hanks as real-life seafarer Capt. Richard Phillips. In the spring of 2009, Phillips faced almost certain death after PETER his cargo ship and crew of 20 HOWELL were hijacked off the coast of Somalia by four armed men who demanded millions of dollars in ransom. We are also asked to consider the desperation of the four pirates. The well-rounded script by Billy Ray (The Hunger Games, Shattered Glass), based on Phillips’s own account, shows how the hijackers are driven by extreme poverty and also by the warlord’s bullets that await them back home, should they fail in their mission. Hanks dials down his usual ebullience to radiate quiet determination as Phillips, a grey-bearded and bespectacled merchant mariner in his late 50s nearing the end of his career. As he leaves his Vermont home and flies off to Oman to meet the MV Maersk Alabama, the cargo ship he will guide through the pirate-infested waters around the Horn of Africa, he speaks to his worried wife (Catherine Keener) of mounting global uncertainty caused by terrorist attacks and economic calamity. “Everything’s different . . . . You’ve got to be strong to survive out there.” The camera jumps to an impoverished Somali vil-

Cargo ship heists are down and the warlord isn’t happy. Capture another ship soon, the stooges tell Muse and his friends, “or you will answer for it.” Muse isn’t inclined to argue, nor does he lack courage. He and other village men form a small flotilla of tiny boats to sail out some 200 km to take on the Alabama, a laughable situation except for the machine guns they carry. Meanwhile, Phillips prepares his crew for a confrontation many of them aren’t willing to face. “This is a real-world situation!” he barks. “They’re not here to fish!” It’s in such furious moments where director Greengrass outclasses all rivals. He recreated airborne Sept. 11 terror in the docudrama United 93 and sent Matt Damon on the run in the Jason Bourne spy drama series, so a watery showdown is right in his wheelhouse. It’s also here where Captain Phillips departs from A Hijacking, a well-received film of similar theme released earlier this year by Tobias Lindholm, a Danish filmmaker. Lindholm seemed reluctant to go with conventional thriller aspects,
even choosing not to show the actual pirate attack. Greengrass dives right in, and so do cinematographer Barry Ackroyd and composer Henry Jackman. They’re all eager to use Hollywood techniques to depict headline realism, but they give the actors room to breathe. Abdi courts Oscar attention for his forceful performance — as does Hanks, already a two-time Best Actor winner. Captain Phillips turns into a deadly game of catand-mouse, with the captain and the pirates taking turns as hunter and hunted. If you follow the news, you know how the story ends, with an assault by Navy SEALS that recalls the recent Zero Dark Thirty, another fact-based actioner. What you can’t prepare for is how this film leaves you: not singing God Bless America, but rather pondering a dysfunctional world where hollow-eyed men of skin and bones feel compelled to take on a superpower. The pirates really would prefer to just be fishermen, Muse tells Phillips, but global economics thwart them: “Big ships come to our waters, take all the fish out. What is left for us to fish?” Peter Howell is a syndicated Toronto Star movie critic.

class,” said McCartney, who performed on the piano and the guitar along with a four-piece band. McCartney was energetic with the students, most of whom were a bit nervous when they asked questions. One sophomore asked why McCartney decided to continue being a musician after all of his successes. McCartney said people frequently ask him, “Can you just retire?” “I say, ‘Thank you very much. No,”’ he said.
NEW YORK — Nearly from its start, the CW, previously known as the WB, has specialized in television about teenagers, or, if you go in for accuracy, shows about preternaturally good-looking twentysomethings pretending to be teenagers. In 1997 the WB began airing Joss Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer and never looked back. Teencentric series Dawson’s Creek, 7th Heaven, Felicity, Gilmore Girls, Roswell, Everwood and others soon followed, to be joined by Veronica Mars, One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl, Smallville, The Vampire Diaries and more when the WB merged with UPN in 2006 to form the CW as we now know it. Since Buffy, teenagers with very special powers have been part of network’s gestalt, but this season super-teens have completely taken over. They are not coming to the network’s rescue. Picking on the CW is undoubtedly to kick a network when it is down. The CW has spent nearly two decades as the perpetual scrub on the radically diminished network varsity squad, one that now regularly gets destroyed by the JV cable team. (Cable’s players are allowed to take their clothes off to win over the crowd, while the network teams can only attempt set shots.) But the CW is not stuck on the bench and in the ratings basement just because of hard-luck timing. It is stuck on the bench because it believes in superheroes, not characters — in people who have magical abilities instead of personalities.

Leo just met the love of his life. At her wedding.
NEW YORK — Paul McCartney celebrated his second wedding anniversary with his wife and a few hundred high school students on Wednesday. The 71-year-old performed at the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts, which was opened by Tony Bennett. McCartney said, “Happy anniversary, Baby,” to Nancy Shevell before going into his latest song, called New. He said the song was inspired by his wife as the students turned to her and gushed. The event with iHeartRadio was to celebrate McCartney’s album, also called New, out next week. One student asked McCartney when he felt he officially made it in the music industry. McCartney said when the Beatles recorded their first single, Love Me Do. The students cheered, and McCartney said: “You shouldn’t know about that.” The crowd, which included some adults, was feverish as McCartney performed a 13-song set from his Beatles, Wings and solo catalogue, including Hey Jude, Eight Days a Week and Jet. “This beats going to

Robertson pens book on musical heroes
STORY FROM PAGE D2
NETWORK: Where have the normal teenagers gone? The CW used to air shows about normal teenagers in normal situations. Dawson and Felicity and Rory Gilmore may have been verbally precocious, but they could not fly, see the future, or suck anyone’s blood. Even Buffy used the extraordinary as an allegory for the everyday: being the slayer — being forced to accept responsibilities one doesn’t want or know how to deal with — was not all that different from the experience of the average adolescent, just a little more Hellmouthy. But the descendants of these shows are hard to find on the CW of today, where the most normal teen on the network is a young Carrie Bradshaw, who appears on the very charming Sex and the City prequel The Carrie Diaries. Instead, the CW now behaves like a movie studio in crisis, obsessed with archetypes who could anchor a blockbuster franchise, or with “pre-sold” ideas-concepts and characters audiences are already familiar with, like Beverly Hills, 90210 or the aforementioned Carrie. The Tomorrow People, which premieres Thursday, stars Robbie Amell as a troubled high-schooler named Stephen who discovers he has special powers that all start with “tele” — teleportation, telekinesis, and telepathy — as if his genes could read, but only got to one page of the dictionary. The pilot is a pretty shameless rip-off of The Matrix, but without the intriguing vir-
tive Jared Levine). Sebastian had been working parttime with children and was growing tired of the repetitive tunes he was forced to endure — “little ‘dunt diddy dunt dee dun dee dun’ kind of music,” his father describes — and found that music by such all-time greats as Johnny Cash and James Brown actually elicited a more enthusiastic response. That got the gears turning, Robbie Robertson said. “We are told and sold the fact that that’s what you play for young children,” he said. “Some of it is cute and adorable and timeless in its own way too — some of those Disney songs . . . . But a lot of it is, to be truthful, a bit condescending. It’s dumbed down. So you get ‘Barney’ music or whatever it is. “(Sebastian) grew up in a household, him and his sisters, that there was great music playing all the time. So it was, he was saying, other people haven’t had that opportunity. Somebody should help them have that opportunity.” Adult readers will likely delight in Robertson’s asides. The 70-year-old has long been renowned for his offkilter guitar playing and evocative storytelling, and the latter factor is on full display here even in one-paragraph diversions about his musical heroes. Sometimes he shares his brief brushes with icons of a prior generation — his quick conversation with Buddy Holly as a 14-year-old, for in-
stance, where the bespectacled legend explained his powerful guitar sound by saying that he “blew a speaker and decided not to get it fixed” — and other times he casts himself as another mere fan, star-struck at a prodigious talent on display (such as his anecdote about seeing James Brown at the Apollo Theater in 1966, where he says he and Levon Helm were the only two white people in the audience). Of course, many of the acts covered in the book were peers of Robertson’s, so he has more intimate stories to share. Of the Beatles, for example, he notes that George Harrison was such an ardent admirer of the Band’s that he invited Robertson out to listen to an embryonic version of Abbey Road in the studio. But Robertson says now that he knew of the Beatles’ interest in his group’s music even before that. “When Music From Big Pink came out, it had a big impact on the music community and songwriters and all kinds of people,” Robertson says of the Band’s classic 1968 debut, noting that Eric Clapton and George Harrison both had acetate discs of the album. “The Beatles were on a TV show and they were doing Hey Jude, and at the end of it — that whole outro thing, ’naaa naaa naaa na-na-na-na!’ — Paul McCartney started singing ‘take a load off Fanny.’ So right away, you know something’s happening.”
tual reality component that made The Matrix the movie that launched a thousand doctoral theses. Stephen may, basically, be the One. As in The Matrix, his allies hang out in abandoned train stations, and when Stephen lives up to his prophesied potential, he does so by stopping bullets using the same “do not walk” hand gesture as Neo. Should future episodes fall off as steeply from the pilot as The Matrix sequels did from The Matrix, you may actually have to be the One to watch what comes next. Reign, about Mary Queen of Scots’ teenage years, begins Oct. 17. It’s a promising premise — at the very least, Showtime could wring something with the enjoyable boudoir realism of The Tudors or The Borgias out of it — but here it’s Sofia Coppola lite, Marie Antoinette by way of Gossip Girl and an Anthropologie catalog, with a group of wide-eyed girls lolling around to Mumford & Sons in modern-cut frocks with Haim hair contending with social hierarchy and cute boys. (Girls is also an influence: Reign borrows the scene from early in Season 1 when Marnie has an emergency masturbation session, but on Reign, the lady-in-waiting emergency-masturbating in a castle stairwell gets discovered by the King of France, who then has sex with her.) And just in case being a world historical figure did not make Mary Stuart special enough, Reign gives her either a special spectral friend or the second sight. Spoiler warning, but if she ever really had either, Mary Stuart probably would not have spent the last 18 years of her life locked up in castles waiting to be executed. Also new to the CW this year: The Originals, which premiered last week and is a spin-off of its hit The Vampire Diaries, starring a vampire-werewolf hybrid who returns to New Orleans to
deal with vampires and witches. Come midseason, there will be Star-Crossed, about discriminated-against aliens with special healing powers who desegregate a local public school. (Even more remarkable than their powers is the aliens’ race: They are all white. This makes Star-Crossed a direct allegory for Little Rock, but with only Caucasians.) Also premiering midseason is The 100, a show about 100 ordinary juvenile delinquents who . . . are the only people exploring a post-apocalyptic Earth. In short, if you are looking for normal teenagers, go watch ABC Family, which now specializes in making exactly the sort of shows that used to
be the CW’s métier. Pretty Little Liars, The Fosters, Switched at Birth, Twisted, not to mention the wonderful and cancelled Bunheads and Huge, feature characters with no super-powers — just identifiable, charming, complicated, addictive, relatively normal teenage problems. ABC Family’s regular kids may not be as flashy as the CW’s stable of superheroes, but they have higher ratings: the CW’s highestranked show, Vampire Diaries, had 2.6 million viewers for its season premiere, while Pretty Little Liars had 3.3 million for its August finale. More importantly, they make for better television. Adolescence is dramatic enough even without fangs.
TORONTO — The Band’s legendary guitarist Robbie Robertson has co-authored a new book geared toward introducing young people to the most influential artists of yore, but there’s at least one weighty omission from the glossy tome: the Band. His collaborator Jim Guerinot said Legends, Icons & Rebels: Music That Changed the World originally included an entry for the mostly Canadian Americana innovators — whose master musicianship and classification-defying signature stew of country, blues, R&B and rock set an inimitable example for bands who followed — but Robertson vetoed his own inclusion over his partner’s objections. “I made them take it out of the book,” Robertson said, his co-writer by his side. “I just didn’t want to be a distraction. I didn’t want to be blowing my own horn in this thing. I didn’t feel comfortable with that. “I understood perfectly that the Band was one of the biggest examples of combining music into a whole new flavour . . . we did that more than anybody else. And I said, ‘No, I just don’t feel comfortable with this.’ Because it just felt like: ‘Hey, here’s the greatest recording artists of all time, the music that changed the world, and I made sure I was in there.’ “I just didn’t want that weighing
over me.” It wasn’t the only heated argument over which artists were to be included in the gorgeously illustrated book, which hits stores this week. The book includes profiles of 27 of the most influential artists of all time, including Aretha Franklin, the Beatles, Bob Marley, Buddy Holly, Ray Charles, Little Richard, the Beach Boys, Sam Cooke, Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell (the sole Canadian artist to merit inclusion), with pithy but fascinating personal anecdotes about each artist from Robertson sketched in the margins. Among the snubs singled out as particularly painful by the authors themselves? The Rolling Stones, Sly and the Family Stone, Roy Orbison, Simon and Garfunkel and David Bowie. Well, they hope to someday issue a Part Two. The book includes two hitstuffed CDs with tracks from every featured artist (when it’s pointed out that securing the rights to all the songs must have been a headache, Robertson and his co-conspirator simply nod their heads wearily in agreement). It’s intended as both an introductory tool for children and young adults unfamiliar with the bedrock-building legends of music’s past as well as an educational tool for adults who might even fancy themselves experts on the artists covered. The idea for the book came from Robertson’s son Sebastian, a co-writer on the project (along with music execu-

VANDERWEKKEN John It is with sadness, but also with joy, that we announce the passing of John Vanderwekken. In the early hours of October 7, 2013, John quietly went to live forever with his heavenly Father. John was born November 10, 1931 in Vogelenzang, The Netherlands. John and Ann were married September 23, 1954 and several days later immigrated to Canada. Dad often said that they were still on their honeymoon. They moved to Clive, Alberta in 1960 where they raised a family and operated an automotive repair shop. Retirement gave John and Ann time to travel to places like Peru, Greece and Irian Jaya for short term mission projects through World Team Canada. John is survived by his loving wife of 59 years, Johanna (Ann), his children, Ann and Charles Claus, Marilyn and Henry Vandermeer, Betty and John Deschiffart, Ken and Marlene Va n d e r w e k k e n a n d Ti m Vanderwekken, 17 grandchildren and 33 great-grandchildren. John is also survived by his brother Joe and Frances Vanderwekken, sister Sylvia Fokkens and sister-in-law Donna Vanderwekken. John is predeceased by his parents Johannas and Geertje, daughter Edith, brother Bill, brother-in-law Bill Fokkens and great-grandson Seth Folkerts. John’s passion in life was to raise his family to be Christians and it was his greatest joy to see his offspring follow Christ. He will be missed but his legacy lives on in us all. A memorial service will be held October 12, 2013 2:00 PM at Wolf Creek Community Church, 4110 Hwy 12 Lacombe.

The resolution adopted by the council said the situation in Afghanistan “still constitutes a threat to international peace and security.” It expressed serious concern about security in the country, pointing to ongoing violence and terrorist activities by the Taliban, al-Qaida, and other illegal and extremist groups as well as by criminals and those involved in the illegal drug trade. The Taliban have escalated attacks in recent months as they try to take advantage of the with-
drawal of foreign troops. In June, Afghan forces took the lead for security nationwide, leaving the NATO-led International Assistance Force known as ISAF entirely in a supporting, backseat role. ISAF has dropped dramatically in strength as it prepares to leave — down from 130,000 troops two years to just over 87,200 troops on Aug. 1, including 60,000 Americans. The Security Council extended ISAF’s mandate until Dec. 31, 2014, the final day for transferring full security responsibility to the Afghan government. Its action followed an outburst Monday from Afghan President Hamid Karzai who alleged that the U.S. and NATO inflicted suffering on the Afghan people and repeatedly violated its sovereignty.
Despite his critical remarks, the Obama administration is still optimistic that a U.S.-Afghan agreement over the future role of American troops in the country can be finalized in the next few weeks. Karzai made the comments on the 12th anniversary of the start of the American campaign in Afghanistan against al-Qaida that ousted its Taliban allies from power. The invasion was in response to the Sept. 11 attacks on the United States, which claimed nearly 3,000 lives. The Security Council welcomed a 2010 agreement between NATO and Afghanistan to provide practical support to improve Afghanistan’s “capacity and capability to tackle continued threats to its security, stability and integrity.”
Rabbis among 10 jailed in alleged plot to force man to give wife divorce BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS TRENTON, N.J. — Two orthodox rabbis and eight other men were arrested in an FBI sting in New Jersey and New York on charges they plotted to kidnap and torture a man to force him to grant a religious divorce. Rabbis Mendel Epstein and Martin Wolmark charged Jewish women and their families thousands of dollars to obtain religious divorces, known as “gets,” from unwilling husbands, the FBI said. “They didn’t do it out of religious conviction,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph Gribko told a judge Thursday in a federal court hearing for the men. “They did it for money.” Marc Agnifilo, a lawyer for Wolmark, said it’s possibly a case where religious law collides with federal statutes, where the crimes they’re accused of can be punished by life in prison. “It’s a very complex case. The government says it’s all about money, but I don’t think that’s quite right,” Agnifilo said after the hearing, calling coercion and even violence to get husbands to grant religious divorces “an old tradition.” The rabbis and the 10 other
men were arrested as a result of an undercover operation that began in August when two FBI agents, one posing as a woman trying to get a divorce, contacted the rabbis. According to an FBI complaint, Epstein spoke about forcing compliance through “tough guys” who use electric cattle prods and even place plastic bags over the heads of husbands. The FBI said the price was more than $50,000 and a prosecutor said at Thursday’s hearing that the organization involved in the alleged plot had been involved in up to 20 kidnappings over the years. No pleas were entered Thursday and lawyers for some of the defendants sought to minimize their clients’ roles in an effort to get them freed on bail or put on home confinement. Magistrate Douglas Arpert ordered all 10 held in federal custody at least until hearings next week. The investigation took place in Ocean and Middlesex counties in New Jersey and Rockland County in New York, and ended with arrests overnight Wednesday. Four of the rabbis’ associates were described as enforcers, or “tough guys,” as Epstein called the men who helped coerce reluc-
tant husbands. The undercover agents, including a man posing as the woman’s brother, met with Epstein at his Ocean County home in August, during which the rabbi spoke about “kidnapping, beating and torturing husbands in order to force a divorce,” the complaint said. “Basically what we are going to be doing is kidnapping a guy for a couple of hours and beating him up and torturing him and then getting him to give the get,” Epstein is quoted as saying during the conversation, which was videotaped. He said that his group did a kidnapping every year to year-anda-half, and that the cost is $10,000 for a rabbinical court to approve the action and $50,000 to $60,000 for the enforcers. The undercover agents wired him a $20,000 down payment, the complaint said. Under Jewish law, if a husband refuses to grant his wife a “get,” she has the right to sue in rabbinical court. The complaint said that a rabbinical court was held in Rockland County on Oct. 2 as part of the sting, during which the use of violence was authorized.
NKorea moots test moratorium at informal talks THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON — North Korea has dangled the prospect of suspending nuclear and long-range missile tests if aid-for-disarmament negotiations get back on track. But it’s not ready to declare a moratorium on space launches — the very act that derailed its last attempt to negotiate with Washington. Recent informal discussions between former U.S. officials and North Korean negotiators in Europe showed Pyongyang’s desire to restart six-nation talks on its nuclear program. But it also underscored the major hurdles that remain before U.S. would be persuaded that diplomacy with the secretive regime is worth another shot. North Korea’s outreach comes after it set the Korean Peninsula on edge with a February nuclear test and dire threats of pre-emptive strikes — and a yearand-a-half since a longrange rocket launch derailed an Obama administration’s attempt to negotiate a nuclear freeze in exchange for food aid. Stephen Bosworth, predecessor of the current U.S. envoy to North Korea, took part in both rounds of discussions in Berlin and London in late September and early October, across the table from Vice Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho, the North’s representative at the stalled six-party talks that also include China, Japan, Russia and South Korea. “We were trying to provide context in which the North Koreans could make wiser decisions than they have in the past,” Bosworth told Associated Press, describing the
talks as “amicable.” He said he wasn’t speaking for the U.S. administration, which keeps stressing that before the nuclear negotiations can restart, it needs to see actions and not just words from the government of young leader
Kim Jong Un to show it is committed to the goal of denuclearization it agreed to in 2005. “Washington’s position is that it’s not ready to come back to the negotiating table until North Korea demonstrates a somewhat more credible
approach. “Since they (North Korea) have been the ones that destroyed last year’s agreement, it’s up to them to create the conditions to show they are serious,” Bosworth said.

Carpenter, the second American to orbit the Earth and first person to explore both the heights of space and depths of the ocean, died Thursday.
Scott Carpenter, second American to go into space, dies BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS DENVER — Scott Carpenter, the second American to orbit the Earth, was guided by two instincts: overcoming fear and quenching his insatiable curiosity. He pioneered his way into the heights of space and the depths of the ocean floor. “Conquering of fear is one of life’s greatest pleasures and it can be done a lot of different places,” he said. His wife, Patty Barrett, said Carpenter died Thursday in a Denver hospice of complications from a September stroke. He lived in Vail. Carpenter followed John Glenn into orbit, and it was Carpenter who gave him the historic sendoff: “Godspeed John Glenn.” The two were the last survivors of the famed original Mercury 7 astronauts from the “Right Stuff” days of the early 1960s. Glenn is the only one left alive. In his one flight, Carpenter missed his landing by 288 miles, leaving a nation on edge for an hour as it watched live and putting Carpenter on the outs with his NASA bosses. So Carpenter found a new place to explore: the ocean floor. He was the only person who was both an astronaut and an aquanaut, exploring the old ocean and what President John F. Kennedy called “the new ocean” — space. NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said Thursday that Carpenter “was in the vanguard of our space program — the pioneers who set the tone for our nation’s pioneering efforts beyond Earth and accomplished so much for our nation. ... We will miss his passion, his talent and his lifelong commitment to exploration.” Life was an adventure for Carpenter and he said it should be for others: “Every child has got to seek his own destiny. All I can say is that I have had a great time seeking my own.” The launch into space was nerve-racking for the Navy pilot on the morning of May 24, 1962. Carpenter completed three orbits around Earth in his space capsule, the Aurora 7, which he named after the celestial event. It was just a coincidence, Carpenter said, that he grew up in Boulder, Colo., on the corner of Aurora Avenue and 7th Street. “You’re looking out at a totally black sky, seeing an altimeter reading of 90,000 feet and realize you are going straight up. And the thought crossed my mind: What am I doing?”
