Snow, snow and more snow BY SUSAN ZIELINSKI ADVOCATE STAFF Red Deer is a magnet for snow so far this month. From Friday morning to early Sunday morning, a total of 20 cm fell on the city, according to Environment Canada. So far in November Red Deer has received 55.4 cm of snow. “It’s a good start for playing outside in the snow,” said Environment Canada meteorologist Bruno Marquis on Sunday. The mean average for snowfall in Red Deer during the month of November is 16.9 cm.

People gathered late Saturday afternoon to be among the first to see lights shine from the Festival of Trees Biggest Christmas Tree located in front of the Old Courthouse on Ross Street.

Snow can’t stop the lights HEAVY SNOW FAILS TO DETER FESTIVAL BY SUSAN ZIELINSKI ADVOCATE STAFF Snow-clogged streets may have cancelled the Santa Claus Parade on Saturday, but Festival Lights the Night at City Hall Park went ahead as planned to kick off another seasonal favourite — Festival of Trees. Rita Timmins, of Red Deer, had not been out to the event for

several years and snowy weather wasn’t going to keep her away this year. “It’s winter in Canada. Embrace it and enjoy it. Don’t hibernate,” said Timmins who came out with her daughter Amelia, 9. Many other Red Deerians felt the same way judging by the families who gathered to play games and keep warm with free hot chocolate and munch on treats while Christmas tunes filled the air. The knee-deep snow in City

Hall Park was trampled as children, and a few young-at-heart adults, chased each other in the fluffy snow that continued to fall on Saturday. “This is typical. If you can’t beat it, join in,” Viesia Luck said about the snowy winter day. “We’ve lived in Red Deer about 18 years. Other than a handful of times, we’ve come every year.”

Central Alberta Aquatic centre supporters hope they are getting closer to swimming in the Olympicsized pool they have been promoting over the past six years. The project goes before Red Deer City Council at the city’s 2014 Capital Budget Meeting on Nov. 26.

“This is the first time it’s actually on the agenda. This is, we think, the best shot we’ve had,” said John Cuthbertson, committee chair of the Central Alberta Aquatic Centre. In advance of the budget meeting, Central Alberta Aquatic Centre is hosting a public meeting to provide an update on the proposed project on Tuesday, from 7:30 to 9 p.m., at the Black Knight Inn.

Standing above the existing 25-metre pool at the Recreation Centre in Red Deer, John Cuthbertson holds up an artist’s rendering of what the interior of a new aquatic centre in Red Deer could look like.


WINTERS: Crews out Red Deer was already looking like a winter wonderland after 21 cm fell on Nov. 2 and 11.8 cm came down on Nov. 3 — the largest accumulation across Alberta that weekend. After that weekend, a dusting of snow came down on Nov. 4 and 9 when .4 cm fell each day. On Nov. 10, Red Deer saw another 1.8 cm. Crews were out clearing roads over the weekend and drivers are reminded to continue to slow down and steer clear of snow removal equipment by keeping two car lengths away from sanders and snowplows. The City of Red Deer encourages drivers to practice safe driving techniques such as giving themselves extra time to reach their destination, reducing speed, leaving extra distance between the vehicle ahead to allow more time to stop, and clearing windshields, mirrors and lights. Red Deer is in for more snow today and Tuesday, according to Environment Canada’s forecast.

FESTIVAL: More decorations She was bundled up for the weather with her son, Blair, 9, and exchange student Van Nguyen, 17, from Vietnam, where the temperature hovers around 30 C at this time of the year. “This is my first Christmas celebration in my life,” Nguyen said. “It’s so good. It’s cold, but it’s good.” The Santa Claus Parade will not be rescheduled, but the downtown still lit up with Christmas cheer on Saturday. Each year the Festival of Trees begins with the Lighting of the Festival’s Biggest Christmas Tree in front of Red Deer’s Old Courthouse in conjunction with the parade. Since this year marked the 20th anniversary of the festival, more decorations were added to make the tree really sparkle. City Hall Park glowed when lights strung on its

trees were illuminated at the event. A musical light show at the Old Courthouse teased spectators before the Biggest Christmas Tree came to life with dazzling colour. Alaine Martin, project officer for Red Deer Regional Health Foundation’s Festival of trees, said another special treat for visitors to the festival next weekend at Westerner Park is the Memory Walk of Trees featuring 20 trees decorated in the themes of past years. Memory trees are not for sale, but another 70 trees decorated and sponsored by local organizations and businesses for event will be for sale as usual. This year Festival of Trees chose to raise money for diagnostic imaging, urology and operating room. But as part of the anniversary celebration, $185,000 will also be divided among all 37 units at the hospital. Martin said some units never get a chance at funding, for instance maintenance, the mail room, or receiving department. But they all could all benefit from a little help. Last year the festival pulled in $1,225,000. “Just from preliminary figures, we look to be pretty steady with last year which was a record-breaking year for us so we’re really excited.” Red Deer’s Festival of Trees is a shining star among festivals held elsewhere. So far it has raised $9.5 million for a variety of hospital projects and equipment thanks to community involvement and support. “You would think bigger cities would have more support. The ingredients we have — the size of the city, the size of our community, the mentality, and the focus of our one hospital — it all contributes to making us so successful.” Martin said the festival tries to have something for everyone. Organizers try to balance new elements to keep it fresh with the traditions that people have come to enjoy. Tickets are still available for a few festival events — Cirque de Noel, Festival Business Lunch and Tis the Season Fashion Luncheon. Tickets are available through TicketMaster at or by calling 1-855-985-5000. Festival of Trees general admission is $6 each for adults, $3 for students and seniors, and $2 for children age four to 11. Tickets are available at the door or prior to the festival at Sobeys Gaetz South and Red Deer Regional Hospital Foundation. For more information go online at www.reddeer-

POOL: Proposal to council Cuthbertson said he’d like to see as many people as possible attend both meetings to show their support for the project. In 2011, city council approved Red Deer Rotary Recreation Park as the location for the facility featuring a 50-metre pool that would finally allow the city to host national competitions. Council approved $200,000 for a concept and business design at its 2010 budget meeting. Work was completed in 2011. Cuthbertson said a lot of progress has been made and Red Deer’s bid to host the 2019 Winter Games provides added incentive. “We’re not building it for the games. We’re building it for the City of Red Deer and it’s people. But the games give us a good opportunity and possibly funds.” Construction is estimated at $90 million but Cuthbertson said it doesn’t have to cost that much. The plan features 10 50-metre lanes and a hydraulic floor and bulk heads to divide the pool. “That means you can have three 25-metre pools, or you can have the 10 lanes, or you can have a combination. For the young kids, people don’t have to be worried about them straying off into the deep end. “It will be an up-to-date facility that will serve Red Deer and region and attract anything up to a national competition. With the location of Red Deer being what it is, it’s just ideal.” He said at this year’s Special Olympics swim meet at Michener Aquatic Centre, that attracted a few hundred athletes, there was no room for spectators to sit. “They had to stand up. They stood up around the pool to watch the events. The place was just crowded.” Supporters say Red Deer is the largest city in Alberta without an aquatic centre for water sports and activities, competitions, therapeutic and recreational use. Cuthbertson said as Red Deer’s population continues to grow people may start wondering why the city doesn’t have an aquatic centre.

Moving of Michener residents starts MORE MOVES EXPECTED BY END OF THE YEAR BY MYLES FISH ADVOCATE STAFF The first two moves of Michener Centre residents into community group homes were completed in September, and the two individuals are “doing very well” in their new homes. The first move was completed on Sept. 26, with a resident transitioning into a group home in Red Deer. The second resident’s move, to an Edmonton group home on Sept. 30, allowed that person to live closer to family. There remain 224 people living at Michener; the government’s plan is to move 120 of those residents into community group and seniors homes while the rest will stay living in the group homes on the site. Two residents have passed away since the announcement that the facility’s north and south sites would be closing in March. According to a spokesperson with the Human Services Department over-

seeing the transition, one of the moved residents had a guardian who consented to the move, while the other was under public guardianship. Cheryl Chichak, public affairs officer with Human Services, said the individuals are doing well in the new residences, and that at least four more moves are expected to take place before the end of the year.

undertaken in March. Chichak said the department respects the fact that some families are “not ready to work with us on transition plans” and that it continues to provide information to all families involved. “We have found that many families are more positive about the transition once they know more about the options in the community that are available to them,” said Chichak in an email. According to Bill Lough, president of The Society of Parents and Friends of Michener Centre, many guardians of Michener residents are waiting to see what the courts will say in regard to the government’s decision to close the facility before committing further to the — CHERYL CHICHAK, PUBLIC AFFAIRS OFFICER process.

is forced to move. He said the group, which is planning a protest to coincide with the Progressive Conservatives’ meeting in Red Deer next weekend, feels it is still possible to convince or force the government to let loved ones live out their days at the facility’s south site. “We’re encouraging our people to simply hold their ground and let us exercise all avenues of resistance,” said Lough. He said many guardians have been shown impressive new homes that loved ones could be moved in to, but the group’s concern remains about whether the quality and continuity of care outside of Michener Centre would be equal to that received at the longrunning residence. An October transition update from the Human Services department said that “several Central Alberta agencies” are creating 45 new spaces for Michener residents, to be ready in early 2014. The update adds that since August, 31 more transition plans for residents have been completed, bringing the total now to 53. The June transition update from the department had stated that the first move of a resident was possible by the end of that month.

Kids getting some answers about mom’s 911 call before death EDMONTON — Brenda Moreside’s grown children have waited eight years to hear details about the night she called 911 asking police for help because her drunken boyfriend was breaking into their northern Alberta home. Mounties didn’t respond and, 12 days later, on Feb. 25, 2005, they found Moreside’s bloody body in her bungalow in High Prairie. Cynthia and Craig Flaata buried and mourned their mother, unaware she had called police in the moments before she was stabbed to death. After nearly a year, they heard about it from a reporter. An internal RCMP memo leaked to the media revealed the 44-yearold woman had dialed 911, but police wouldn’t respond because the man couldn’t be charged with breaking into his own residence. At the time, RCMP admitted they made an error: an officer should have been dispatched. Today, a fatality inquiry is to start to examine the circumstances of Moreside’s death. Mounties will be called to testify and, it’s expected, a recording of the crucial 911 call will be played. Moreside’s children say they don’t want to hear the tape and her last plea for help. Nor are they interested in the disturbing details of her death. But they do want some answers from the RCMP, including whether anyone was ever disciplined for the decision not to respond. The also want an apology. “They don’t respect us enough to tell us anything,” said Craig Flaata, who added that his many letters to the force have gone unanswered. He’s angry and blames the Mounties for his mother’s death. “I think the RCMP need to be held accountable. If they sent someone, she could still be alive now.” Moreside, who had her first child at 17, was divorced and had moved around the province before settling in High Prairie, about 360 kilometres north of Edmonton. She had been in several bad relationships

Willier pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to 10 years. It was his second conviction for manslaughter. He had already killed a man in a rooming house brawl, something RCMP should have known about when Moreside called 911, said her daughter. She hopes the inquiry will also question the RCMP about whether race played a role in their decision that night. Moreside was Metis and Willier is from a First Nation. Did police think they were just “a couple of drunk Indians?” asked Flaata. “I don’t want to say that it is a race thing, but I don’t know that it isn’t a race thing. Did that play a part in it? I’d like to know. “If it was somebody from one of the white, rich families back home, would they have gone out to that house to make sure the husband wasn’t going to hurt her?” Craig Flaata said that in a small town such as High Prairie, with just 3,000 people, the RCMP detachment isn’t far from anywhere and it would have taken only minutes for officers to get to his mother’s house and save her. His sister agrees, but wonders what would have happened after that? She believes Willier would have killed her mother at some point.


Homicide victim Brenda Moreside is shown in a family photo. In 2005 Brenda Moreside called 911 from her home in northern Alberta to report that her husband was drunk and breaking into the house. RCMP never responded and 12 days later found her body was found, stabbed to death. “Who knows if it would have been three months later, a year later ... Stan at the end of the day is the man who chose to make that decision in the heat of the moment to kill my mom. But my mom also chose to stay.” RCMP wouldn’t comment on the case before the inquest starts. After news leaked out about the 911 call, the force did say High Prairie officers would receive additional domestic violence training. They were also to review 800 family violence files but wouldn’t say if the review led to any further charges. Cynthia Flaata said

witnessing her mother’s abuse has made her unwilling to accept any mistreatment at the hands of a man. And she’s instilled that attitude in her teenage daughter. While her brother is still angry about their

mother’s death, she is more resigned. So many years have passed, she’s had to find closure on her own. “I’m not angry anymore. I’m just more curious as to what went wrong.”

before she met Stanley Willier from the nearby Sucker Creek reserve in about 2001. They were engaged to be married, but her children hoped the relationship wouldn’t last. Moreside often ran off to see her kids in Edmonton after nasty fights with Willier. One time, she told them, Willier had kicked her down some stairs, breaking some of her teeth. They begged her to leave him. The night before Moreside was killed, the couple had been out drinking at the Cozy Corner Pub in High Prairie, said Cynthia Flaata. The two had an argument at the bar before Moreside went home and locked Willier out. From sitting through various legal proceedings in the case, Cynthia Flaata learned that her mother actually called police two times that night. News reports on the leaked RCMP memo said an officer phoned back Moreside that night and asked if she felt like she were in danger. She said no. Flaata can’t explain why her mother waved off police. Perhaps her killer was already threatening her? It’s more likely the woman just got fed up asking police for help, Flaata suggested. “I think probably because it was a hassle to get a response, they weren’t taking her seriously ... she was like, ‘You know what. Forget it. I’ll just deal with this guy myself.”’ Nearly two weeks later, she said, Willier told a relative he had done something awful to Moreside. Police were alerted. That’s when they found her body. Willier was arrested and later confessed to the crime. But Moreside’s family would soon have another reason to be angry with the Mounties. In 2006, a judge tossed Willier’s confession, ruling that he hadn’t been given a reasonable opportunity to consult with a lawyer of his choice before the police interview. He was set free. The Court of Appeal later ruled the Mounties weren’t so wrong after all and ordered a new trial. Willier took his case to the Supreme Court, but lost. In 2011,

‘We can stop this madness’ PHILIPPINES TRAGEDY SHOWS URGENCY OF WARSAW CLIMATE SUMMIT As people in the Philippines struggle with the devastation and death from the worst storm to hit land in recorded history, world leaders are meeting in Warsaw, Poland, to discuss the climate crisis. “What my country is going through as a result of this extreme climate event is madness. The climate crisis is madness,” Yeb Sano, lead negotiator for the Philippines, told the opening session of the UN climate summit, which runs until Nov. 22. “We can stop this madness. DAVID Right here in SUZUKI Warsaw.” Given the slow progress at the 18 meetings held since 1992 — when countries from around the world joined the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change — it’s hard not to be pessimistic. Canada, in particular, has been repeatedly singled out among the close to 200 member countries for obstructing progress and not doing


enough to address climate change at home. But as scientific evidence continues to build, and impacts — from extreme weather to melting Arctic ice — continue to worsen, with costs mounting daily, the impetus to resolve the problem is growing. We’re exhausting Earth’s finite resources and pushing global ecosystems to tipping points, beyond which addressing pollution and climate issues will become increasingly difficult and costly. The only hindrance to developing a fair, ambitious and legally binding climate plan for the world is lack of political will. Part of the problem is that much of the world is tied to the fossil fuel economy, and the rush is on to get as much oil, coal and gas out of the ground and to market while people are still willing to pay for it and burn it up. We’re wasting precious resources in the name of quick profits, instead of putting them to better use than propelling often solo occupants in large metal vehicles, and instead of making them last while we shift to cleaner energy sources. But there’s cause for hope. Solutions are available. Governments just have to demonstrate courage and leadership to put us on a path to a healthier future. For example, a recent report by

energy consulting firm ECOFYS, Feasibility of GHG emissions phase-out by mid-century, shows it’s technically and economically feasible to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions to zero from 90 per cent of current sources with readily available technology. It shows we could phase out almost all net emissions by 2050 by innovating further. In doing so, we could likely meet the agreed-upon goal of limiting global average temperature increases to below 2C, and we’d stand a 50 per cent chance of staying below 1.5C by the end of the century. All of this would have the added benefit of reducing “water, air and soil pollution associated with traditional energy generation.” The report echoes the David Suzuki Foundation’s findings regarding Canada’s potential to meet its current and forecasted demand for fuel and electricity with existing supplies of solar, wind, hydroelectric and biomass energy. Whether or not any of this is politically feasible is another question. But the longer we delay the more difficult and expensive it will get. Polling research also shows Canadians expect our government to be a constructive global citizen on climate action. A recent Leger Marketing survey sponsored by Canada 2020 and the University of Montreal found

the majority of Canadians understand that human activity is contributing to climate change and believe the federal government should make addressing the issue a high priority. Of those polled, 76 per cent said Canada should sign an international treaty to limit greenhouse gas emissions, with most supporting this even if China does not sign. The poll also found majority support for a carbon tax as one way to combat climate change, especially if the money generated is used to support renewable energy development. Although B.C. has recently stepped back from previous leadership on climate change, its carbon tax is one example among many of local governments doing more than the federal government to address climate change. We and our leaders at all political levels — local, national and international – must do everything we can to confront the crisis. As Mr. Sano told delegates in Warsaw, “We cannot sit and stay helpless staring at this international climate stalemate. It is now time to take action. We need an emergency climate pathway.” Scientist, author and broadcaster David Suzuki wrote this column with Ian Hanington. Learn more at


Do we really need sirens blaring in the night? So here I am in the wee hours of a Saturday morning, tapping away on my computer like a digitally disposed insomniac when I should be residing in the arms of Morpheus while attempting to acquire the heavily prescribed minimum dose of six to eight hours of beauty sleep that apparently we humans, especially we less than aesthetically gifted specimens, require. The reason for my reluctantly aroused state is, alas, the misfortune of another: I was joltingly awakened by the departure of an entourage of emergency vehicles leaving the firehall a few blocks over in Sunnybrook, sirens ripping the night apart, as, indeed, they do most nights at least once. We may never know the outcome of the human drama that was unfolding, but hundreds, perhaps thousands of people were enmeshed in it by the cacophony that stole the night away from us. Of course, I sympathize with the hapless victim of disaster and I’m sure that the sound of approaching blaring behemoths may have sounded like a symphony in a moment of need, but I cannot help but postulate that the associated racket could be minimized to avoid such abrupt punctuations in the lives of the rest of us not currently blighted by catastrophe. This may sound selfish but its really not. It is in the context of a wider public good. Many people are required to be fit and rested before they commence their duties in a safe and alert manner that is expected of them by society. A theoretical driver falling asleep at the wheel of a car is guilty of negligence and becomes a menace to others when all they needed was a good, uninterrupted snooze the night before. If this driver does fall prey to destiny and sleep debt say, because he or she was awakened by the wail of klaxons once or more the previous night, does this not somewhat negate the contribution to society that the stalwart members of our emergency services have already made? It becomes a self defeating Sisyphean task to constantly rescue victims of unfortunate circumstance when there is a literally incalculable potential that in doing so, the sonic implications may lead to yet another calamity — although the Macchiavelli in me might suppose that this was good for business. This may be a prosaic example and perhaps unprovable, but the fact remains that citizens should be able to properly rest when possible. Shift workers are subjected to horrendous forces acting upon their minds and bodies enough as it is without the variable of other peoples’ misery which is, frankly, none of their concern. Numerous psychological studies emphasize the physical and mental requirements of functional rest. Red Deer by day is a bustling, modern city with traffic issues associated with typical conurbations that would necessitate the wider use of sirens. But at night, it’s pretty much a sleepy hamlet and it should stay that way. Many communities have bylaws banning train whistles between certain hours of day except in the event of impending emergency and I propose the same for emergency vehicles. There are probably liability issues involved but they need a holistic approach. A similar rationale banned the use of train whistles and I’m certain that the same argument can be made for emergency vehicles. The other advantage, apart from the benefits of uninterrupted slumber, is that Red Deer would

Alberta Press Council member The Red Deer Advocate is a sponsoring member of the Alberta Press Council, an independent body that promotes and protects the established freedoms of the press and advocates freedom of information. The Alberta Press Council upholds

Economic Trade Agreement (CETA). Mr. Collier continues to fear monger and spread the repeated falsehoods of the Council of Canadians about this agreement. The Canada-EU CETA will see an increase of $12 billion to Canada’s GDP and provide our businesses with access to a lucrative market of 500 million consumers, the single largest consumer market in the world. It will give our businesses a level playing field to compete in Europe. Our government sought input from the provinces and territories throughout the negotiation process and that is why they have all come out in support of the agreement. We will continue to work with them as the agreement is fully ratified and implemented. Nothing in the agreement in any way diminishes Canada’s sovereignty over its fresh water supplies. We have heard this same alarmist claims from the anti-trade NDP and Council of Canadians for over 25 years. Nothing in any of Canada’s trade agreements would force a government to privatize, contract out or deregulate any water related service. Municipal governments will still have the flexibility to give preferences to Canadian companies.

Illegal B.C. dentist surrenders BY THE CANADIAN PRESS A British Columbia man who’s been dubbed the “Bedroom Dentist� after he set up an illegal dental surgery in the bedroom of a house near Vancouver has surrendered to Toronto police. Tung Sheng (David) Wu turned himself into police on Saturday and is to appear in court Monday for a bail hearing, Toronto police said in a news release. Wu, 62, was convicted of contempt of court and sentenced to three months in jail for ignoring an earlier court order to stop practising dentistry without a licence, but B.C.’s College of Dental Surgeons had been unable to locate him. He was convicted in absentia and has yet to respond to the allegations. The college uncovered an illegal dental operation in Burnaby this past May, shutting the clinic down and warning hundreds of patients to get tested for blood-

borne illnesses such as hepatitis and HIV. In 2003, a court had ordered Wu to stop practising dentistry without a licence, but B.C. Supreme Court Judge Austin Cullen concluded Wu did not comply. “There is uncontradicted evidence that the defendant has never been registered with the College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia,� Cullen said as he sentenced Wu last month. “I accept beyond a reasonable doubt that Mr. Wu was engaged in the practice of dentistry continuously since the time of the (2003 injunction) until May of 2013.� Aside from the jail time, Wu was also ordered to pay the college’s legal bills, which so far have cost more than $140,000. The spokesperson for the college could not be immediately reached for comment on Sunday, but Jerome Marburg, the dental college’s registrar and CEO, has previously condemned Wu as someone with “no honour� who preyed on vulnerable patients.

Marburg publicly accused Wu of “taking active steps� to evade the college and the courts. For months, Wu evaded the college’s efforts to find him, including an offer of a $2,000 reward for information about his arrest. He was also the subject of a Canadawide warrant for his arrest. The college launched an investigation after a public complaint, which eventually prompted officials with the college and the RCMP to raid the clinic in May. According to court documents, the living room of the house was set up as a waiting room, with rows of folding chairs to accommodate patients, while the bedroom served as the operating room. The bedroom was “filthy,� the court documents say, with no source of sterilized water. Investigators did find a sterilizing machine, but it was unplugged and covered in dust. The college believes Wu performed dental work on more than 450 people.

Two hunters found safe after cold night lost in B.C. Interior A pair of hunters, including a 71-year-old, are safe after spending a cold night stuck in the wilderness of the British Columbia Interior. Robert Driver, 71, and his 60-year-old friend, Wayne Camille, were in an area near Monte Lake, southeast of Kamloops, on Friday hunting moose when Driver’s truck became stuck in the snow on a remote mountaintop road. Driver said the pair tried twice to make it out of the area on their own, but the deep snow combined with Camille’s health made that impossible. “I was never scared, because I would fight a bear with a knife, but I was worried because of the guy I was with, he had bad arthritis,� said Driver. They were reported missing when they didn’t return and a search was launched. An air search-andrescue volunteer spotted the pair’s truck Saturday afternoon, and an RCMP helicopter arrived soon after. “I’m the type of guy

that I don’t like flying, but I couldn’t get in that helicopter fast enough,� said Driver. Alen Hobler with Kamloops Search And

Rescue said the men were cold and shaken, but otherwise OK. “They were very exuberant that we were able to locate them and res-

cue them,� said Hobler. “When we got them back down to the highway, they were absolutely ecstatic to be out of their predicament.�

TO FURTHER WEAKEN HIS AUTHORITY BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — Scandal-plagued Rob Ford didn’t shrink from the spotlight Sunday in the face of a key vote by his council that would effectively make him mayor of Toronto in name only. Despite a plea from the CFL commissioner to stay away, an upbeat looking Ford showed up to watch his hometown Argonauts take on and lose to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats for a berth in next week’s Grey Cup. He also gave an interview with an American media outlet to make his case. Ford posed for pictures and hugged fellow spectators before taking a seat near a rival fan with a sign stating “Our mayor’s better than yours,� while those sitting behind him looked angry at having their view blocked by the commotion. He was mobbed by people Rob Ford who mostly seemed supportive as he left the game. Ford sounded a defiant tone in an interview with U.S. Fox News recorded just before the game, appearing unbowed at the prospect of a special city council meeting on Monday to vote on a motion further stripping away his mayoral authority. “I’m going to continue to fight for the little guy. I’m going to continue to save taxpayers money. And if the councillors want to strip all my powers, that’s up to them,� he said, suggesting voters will have final say in next year’s municipal election. Ford repeated that he is not an alcoholic or a drug addict, adding that he’s getting professional help and hitting the gym “for two hours every day.� City council can’t oust Ford, but Monday’s motion would make him little more than a figurehead, with control of his office and budget essentially placed in the hands of the deputy mayor. Two previous motions that sailed through council Friday took away Ford’s ability to appoint key committee chairs and exercise emergency powers, as once-bitter rivalries between councillors melted away in the face of bombshell revelations about the mayor’s behaviour. Ford has threatened legal action against the moves to water down his powers, but his lawyer George Rust-D’Eye said Sunday night in an email that he has not received instructions from Ford to seek an injuction blocking Monday’s vote. Any case to quash the bylaws already passed by councillors — likely on the grounds council acted illegally or in bad faith — would be heard before the Ontario superior court, and an injuction to put those bylaws on hold pending the outcome of the case could take many months. In a roller coaster week at city hall, Ford admitted Wednesday he has purchased illegal drugs while in office, and one day later sparked outrage by making a crude sexual comment on live television that he later apologized for. Ford has stubbornly refused to take a leave or resign ever since reports surfaced in May of a video that appeared to show him smoking crack cocaine. Police say they think they have recovered the video. During a subsequent investigation, former staffers told police of his guzzling alcohol while driving, lewd and bizarre behaviour, and his consorting with suspected sex-workers. Ford has called the allegations outright lies and said he would take his former aides to court. The Ford scandal has seen international news cameras join the fray at city hall, while the ongoing ordeal has become grist for the mill of television comics. NBC’s Saturday Night Live was the latest to lampoon Ford, riffing on him not once but twice in its latest episode. The show opened with a parody of the mayor’s repeated public apologies for such things as smoking crack, buying drugs, driving after drinking and using vulgar language on live TV. Ford has his own platform with a show on Sun TV Monday night.

Big storms sweep through U.S. Midwest TORNADOES, HIGH WINDS CAUSE EXTENSIVE DAMAGE, DELAY FOOTBALL GAME BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO — Intense thunderstorms and tornadoes swept across the Midwest on Sunday, causing extensive damage in several central Illinois communities, killing at least two people and even prompting officials at Chicago’s Soldier Field to evacuate the stands and delay the Bears game. Mark Styninger, the coroner of Washington County in southern Illinois, said an elderly man and his sister were killed around noon when a tornado hit their home in the rural community of New Minden. In central Illinois, the town of Washington appeared particularly hard-hit, with one resident saying his neighbourhood was wiped out in a matter of seconds by a tornado. “I stepped outside and I heard it coming. My daughter was already in the basement, so I ran downstairs and grabbed her, crouched in the laundry room and all of a sudden I could see daylight up the stairway and my house was gone,” Michael Perdun said Sunday afternoon in an interview with The Associated Press on his cellphone. “The whole neighbourhood’s gone, (and) the wall of my fireplace is all that is left of my house.” By mid-afternoon it remained unclear how many people were hurt. In a news release, the Illinois National Guard said it had dispatched 10 firefighters and three vehicles to Washington to assist with “immediate search and recovery operations in the tornado damaged area.” And Steve Brewer, chief operating officer at Methodist Medical Center of Illinois in Peoria, said that four or five people had come to the hospital seeking treatment, but he described their injuries as minor. He said another area hospital had received about 15 patients, but did not know the severity of their injuries. Brewer said doctors and other medical professionals were setting up a temporary emergency care centre to treat the injured before transporting them to area hospitals. “I went over there immediately after the tornado, walking through the neighbourhoods, and I couldn’t even tell what street I was on,” Alderman Tyler Gee told WLS-TV. “Just completely flattened — some of the neighbourhoods here in town, hundreds of homes.” About 90 minutes after the tornado destroyed homes in Washington, the storm darkened downtown Chicago.


A Washington firefighter peers into the home of a fellow firefighter whose home was destroyed when a tornado swept through Washington, Ill., Sunday. As the rain and high winds slammed into the area, officials at Soldier Field evacuated the stands and ordered the Bears and Baltimore Ravens off the field. Fans were allowed back to their seats shortly after 2 p.m., and the game resumed after about a two-hour delay. Earlier, the Office of Emergency Management and Communications issued a warning to fans, urging them “to take extra precautions and ... appropriate measures to ensure their personal safety.” NFL games in Cincinnati and Pittsburgh also could be affected by the rough weather. Just how many tornadoes hit was unclear Sunday afternoon. According to the National Weather Services’ website, a total of 59 tornadoes had struck, the bulk of them in Illinois. But meteorologist Matt Friedlein said the total might fall because emergency workers, tornado spotters and others often report the same tornado. Still, when the weather service was issuing its warning that severe weather was bearing down on the Midwest, officials said the last such warning issued in November came in 2005, and the re-

sult was an outbreak of 49 tornadoes. The storm also followed dire warnings by the weather service that the storm was simply moving too fast for people to wait until they saw it to get ready. “Our primary message is this is a dangerous weather system that has the potential to be extremely deadly and destructive,” said Laura Furgione, deputy director of the National Weather Service National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. “Get ready now.” In fact, the weather service said officials confirmed that a tornado touched down just before 11 a.m. near the central Illinois community of East Peoria, about 150 miles southwest of Chicago, but authorities did not immediately have damage or injury reports. Within an hour, the weather service said that tornadoes had touched down in Washington, Metamora, Morton and other central Illinois communities, though officials could not say whether it was one tornado touching down or several. “This is a very dangerous situation,” said Russell Schneider, director of

Thousands pour into Lebanon as Syrian fighting nears border THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BEIRUT — Thousands of Syrians poured into Lebanon, taking shelter in wedding halls and makeshift shacks after fleeing heavy fighting in a mountainous region across the border in Syria, while a massive explosion Sunday targeting a government building outside Damascus killed at least 31 soldiers. The clashes in Qalamoun, an area that stretches north of the Syrian capital along the Lebanese frontier, appeared to be part of a long-anticipated government offensive aimed at cutting an important rebel supply route and cementing President Bashar Assad’s hold on a key corridor from the capital to the coast. A government victory in the strategic region would deal a severe blow to the already beleaguered rebels on Damascus’ doorstep. Over the past month, Assad’s forces have made head-

way against the rebels on two key fronts, capturing a string of opposition-held suburbs south of Damascus and taking two towns and a military base outside the northern city of Aleppo. Still, the opposition remains firmly entrenched in other areas around Damascus and capable of carrying out large attacks. A massive bombing Sunday levelled a government office in the northeastern suburb of Harasta, killing at least 31 soldiers, according to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. Three brigadiers and one major general were among the dead, according to the group’s director, Rami Abdurrahman. There was no immediate confirmation from government officials or state media. Since the heavy fighting in Qalamoun began Friday, some 10,000 Syrians have fled across the border to the Lebanese frontier town of Arsal, former Mayor

Bassel Hojeiri said. He said the new arrivals have crammed into wedding halls and improvised shacks. Some families left so quickly that they arrived in Lebanon “without anything except the clothes on their backs,” said Dana Sleiman, who works for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. She said at least 1,000 Syrian families crossed into Lebanon over the weekend, but many had not yet registered with the U.N., so more precise figures weren’t available. Sleiman said some of the new arrivals settled into tin shack slums that dot eastern Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley, and they were being offered thick plastic to reinforce their shelters against the cold. The U.N. refugee agency was also distributing blankets, mattresses, food, diapers and hygiene kits to the refugees. The new refugees join an estimated 1.4 million Syrians — 800,000 of


the weather service’s Storm Prediction Center. “Approximately 53 million in 10 states are at significant risk for thunderstorms and tornadoes.” The potential severity of the storm this late in the season also carries the risk of surprise. “People can fall into complacency because they don’t see severe weather and tornadoes, but we do stress that they should keep a vigilant eye on the weather and have a means to hear a tornado warning because things can change very quickly,” said Matt Friedlein, a weather service meteorologist. According to agency officials, parts of Illinois, Indiana, southern Michigan and western Ohio were at the greatest risk of seeing tornadoes, large hail and damaging winds throughout the day Sunday. Strong winds and atmospheric instability were expected to sweep across the central Plains during the day before pushing into the mid-Atlantic states and northeast by evening. Many of the storms were expected to become supercells, with the potential to produce tornadoes, large hail and destructive winds.

Airplane crash in Russian city of Kazan believed to have killed 50

whom have registered — who have already found shelter in Lebanon, according to Lebanese officials. The massive influx has proven a burden for Lebanon, and has helped stoke the country’s already simmering sectarian tensions. Sleiman said most of the Syrians who crossed into Lebanon over the weekend were from the town of Qara, which is the focal point of the offensive along with the nearby towns of Rima and Nabak. The battle for Qalamoun has been expected for weeks, and both the government and the opposition have been reinforcing their positions in the region ahead of winter.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MOSCOW — A Russian passenger airliner crashed Sunday night while trying to land at the airport in the city of Kazan, killing all 50 people aboard, officials said. The Boeing 737 belonging to Tatarstan Airlines crashed about 7:20 p.m. local time (1520 GMT; 10:20 a.m. EST). There were no immediate indications of what may have caused the crash. Reports said the plane appeared to lose altitude as it was making a second landing attempt, crashing and catching fire. Weather in the city soon after was reported

to be light precipitation and winds of about 8 metres per second (18 mph). Kazan is about 720 kilometres (450 miles) east of Moscow, where the flight originated. A spokeswoman for the Emergencies Ministry, Irina Rossius, said there were 44 passengers and six crew members aboard and all had been killed. Russia has seen a string of deadly crashes in recent years. Some have been blamed on the use of aging aircraft, but industry experts point to a number of other problems, including poor crew training, crumbling airports, lax government controls and widespread neglect of safety in the pursuit of profits.

Red Deer’s Cronquist House is presenting a cooking class and Christmas goodies over the coming weeks to usher in the busy holiday season. On Thursday, members of the public are invited to Cooking with Peter Lao from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at Festival Hall at 4214 58th St. Participants will learn from Cronquist’s own chef how to make sweet and sour pork, complimented by a flavoury side of mushroom fried rice. The cost is $50 per person. Bring your own cutting board, sharp knife and apron. Lao hopes to make the cooking classes a monthly affair. There will also be a Victorian Christ-

mas supper for the first time in the stately three-storey farmhouse overlooking Bower Ponds on Nov. 29 at 6:30 p.m. The meal will be a traditional feast of roast beef, yorkshire pudding, roast duck and sage and onion dressing, topped with mince pies and English sponge cake. The cost is $40 per person. Seating is limited to 42. “There will be entertainment. Father Christmas may make an appearance and the Victorian era was when Christmas crackers came out for the first time so those will be there,” said Delores Coghill, manager at the Red Deer Cultural Heritage Society. Cronquist House’s annual International Christmas Tea kicks off at 1 p.m. on Dec. 3, featuring an array of diverse finger foods and desserts from Germany, the Philippines, El Salvador and many other locations. There will also be an impressive selection of teas, as well as coffee, cappuccinos

and hot cocoa. Admission is $10 per customer. According to Coghill, the events are crucial for future business. “Cronquist House has been staying open longer: Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. “By the end of this month, if we don’t get more people coming, we will have to stop that,” she said. “We’re losing money every day with the longer hours. We’re not trying to make money but we’re trying to stay on top of paying for the house and now we’re dipping into our savings trying to keep it open more because we thought that was what people wanted.” Sunday brunches are also slated to start in December. “We may also be open in the evenings, if we get more people coming,” said Coghill. To register or for more information on any of the events, contact the society at 403346-0055.

Women are invited to put on a fancy dress and come to a special event at Deer Park Alliance Church on Dec. 6. The Little Black Dress Affair promises to be an evening of games, prizes, good food and drink. There will be a purse swap, Christmas vendors, and Michele from Cheeky Coutures Fashion Consulting will be on hand to offer fashion advice. There will be specialty coffees, appetizers and desserts at the event, which runs from 7 to 10 p.m. Tickets ($10) are limited and can be procured through the church by Dec. 2.

Seminar aimed at helping adolescent learning

Ben Guenther of RBC Dominion Securities and Tracy Collins-Decker of RBC Commercial banking work together on a snowy day helping to build the Habitat For Humanity triplex on 44th Street in Eastview Friday. Several volunteers from RBC took time out from their work Friday to lend a hand with the build.

Bankers pitch in for Habitat ADD SWEAT EQUITY TO HABITAT FOR HUMANITY HOME BY SUSAN ZIELINSKI ADVOCATE STAFF It’s not everyday that a bunch of bank executives volunteer to shovel gravel in the blowing snow. But that’s what makes a Habitat for Humanity build so special. “It was a cold snowy day but the fact we were there helping out our community, we loved being there,” said Ron Sauve, regional vice-president with RBC for Central Alberta. “We had no idea what we were going to do. Whatever we had to do, we were prepared to do. Habitat is such a wonderful cause.” On Friday a crew of 12 from RBC shoveled gravel into the basement so the cement foundation could be poured at Habitat’s triplex construction at 3818 44th St. They also picked up tools and helped with some framing work. It’s the first triplex to be built by the local chapter. Three families have been already selected to move into the housing, and have each already completed their “sweat equity” requirement of 500 hours worked through previous builds or volunteering with the organization. “The framing is almost complete. The roof

is on. We’re probably going to be looking at windows and doors, closing it in, in the next week or so,” said Paula Madu, Habitat executive director. Work started on the triplex in the summer and it should be finished by about Easter. The Red Deer chapter has built 20 houses since 1994. The last house was built in 2012 in Three Hills, the only house outside Red Deer. Madu said the chapter would look at more builds outside of Red Deer, but it would require a commitment to the project from outlying communities. The next build has not yet been determined. “We’re just in the throws of land procurement. Hopefully we would have something in place to commence another build in the spring.” Another unique feature of this year’s build is the local agreement with Corrections Canada to have inmates from the Bowden Institution volunteering their labour to the project five days a week. Inmates have worked on Habitat projects across Canada for a number of years, but this will be the first time for the partnership in Red Deer. Anyone interested in volunteering with Habitat for Humanity at a build or at its ReStore can call 403-309-6080 or e-mail info@ Refurbished furniture, appliances and building supplies are sold at the ReStore, 4732 78A St. Cl. Proceeds go to the organization’s administration and towards construction.

Parents and professionals are invited to learn more about how they can better facilitate learning among children and youth through the local Learning Disabilities Association chapter’s annual seminar series. Over six sessions in Red Deer, retired teacher and education coach Doug Swanson will share tools and strategies that those interested in adolescent education can use to help young people succeed in academics and life. The sessions run the gamut from developing relationships with learners to understanding how seemingly problematic behaviours can be harnessed through positive reinforcement. “There are many behaviours that seem weird to us or inappropriate but they work really well for the individual even though they don’t work for us. We go through a litany of examples of what we might call weird behaviour, and then when you start to understand it you go, ‘Wow, that’s why that behaviour is there,’ ” said Swanson in regard to the topic of the fifth and sixth sessions in the series. “If we reward outcomes, then people become timid. If we reward process, people become risk takers.” The first session’s focus is on relationship building, while the second looks at “whole person development” to foster success in learning. The third session will speak to the processes that lead to success and the aim of the fourth is to examine how identifying mental skills in youth can foster the resilience critical to learning. The sessions each run from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School. The first session is to be held on Nov. 28, with subsequent sessions on Jan. 9, Jan. 23, Feb. 6, March 6 and May 8. The first session is free for everyone, while all sessions are free for members of the Learning Disabilities Association. For non-members, the latter five sessions cost $15 to attend. Swanson said anybody interested in the topic of learning will appreciate the sessions. The presentations will include opportunities for discussion.

Some lived in Red Deer in 1904 when Rosedale was still known as the Balmoral district. Others worked at the Tom Gaetz Store, Piper Brick Company and the Great West Lumber Company. All are part of a personal history tracing the descendants of Red Deer families back to 1913. The stories are compiled in the Centennial Family Project, a 158-page book with photos and information about 48 families. “It’s a cross section of people who came here, made it their home and they still have descendents that are living here,” said Linda McKay, a member of the Red Deer

branch of the Alberta Genealogical Society, organizers of the project to help mark the city’s 100th birthday. “It’s neat that there are still that many people here. It gives you information about the roots of our community and how people from all walks of life are still here.” McKay said they expected more families but she said there is still time for residents to come forward with their personal history dating back to 1913. The deadline to submit stories and photos is Dec. 6.

Death of TV is exaggerated PULLING THE PLUG ON TRADITIONAL TV IS STILL A SLOW-MOVING TREND IN CANADA BY THE CANADIAN PRESS MONTREAL — Watching television on the Internet is cheap and convenient, but so far only a small number of Canadians have cut the cord on traditional viewing as TV providers offer discount prices and spend more on programs to keep customers who pay bigger monthly bills. The death of traditional TV watching has been exaggerated so far, say analysts who track viewing habits. “The truth of the matter is the revolution hasn’t come,” said Brahm Eiley of the Convergence Consulting Group in Toronto. It’s slow moving with about 400,000 TV subscribers — 3.5 per cent — out of 11.8 million who have cut the cord

since 2011, Eiley said, adding cord cutting started after the arrival of online subscription service Netflix in late 2010. “TV is not dead,” Eiley said. Canadians watch about 28 hours of TV a week and another three hours on the Internet, according to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission. But the movement to online viewing can’t be ignored because it has a cost for TV providers. The average revenue that a TV customer generates is $65 monthly, compared with almost $45 for an Internet customer, Eiley said. One viewer who left traditional television behind is Matthew Duffie, who hasn’t had cable for seven years and watches TV online and subscribes to

Netflix for $8 a month. He said he may never return as a traditional TV customer. “If I could pick about 10-ish channels that I would want, then maybe,” said Duffie, 33, who works in alarm systems. “Other than that, I would be hard pressed.” The federal government wants to give consumers more choice and has asked the CRTC to do a report on steps it can take toward unbundling TV packages containing multiple channels that viewers may not want. TV providers are fighting to keep every subscriber and Bell’s Fibe TV has been leading the way with aggressive promotions noted by competitors Rogers and Videotron, which have lost customers in the intensely competitive

environment. Mario Mota, a consultant with Ottawa-based Boon Dog Professional Services, said TV customers are calling their providers constantly for better deals to lower their bills. Cable, satellite and Internet protocol TV providers must decide whether they want keep these customers with “sweetheart deals,” he said. Eric Rosenquist, who has a blog called, Adventures in Canadian Cord Cutting, said he cut his satellite TV service in 2012 after the Stanley Cup playoffs due to annual prices hikes. One way he satisfies his hockey watching is with an NHL streaming package.

Traders watch Fed on stimulus BY THE CANADIAN PRESS The U.S. Federal Reserve will remain the focus of investors this week amid a shortage of market-moving economic data and as corporate earnings from the third quarter slow to a trickle. Of particular interest will be the release Wednesday of the minutes from the latest Federal Reserve meeting late last month when the central bank judged the American economy still too weak to start tapering its key stimulus program, the monthly purchase of US$85 billion of bonds. But the meeting did nothing to lessen the uncertainty surrounding when the Fed might move, particularly as its sounded more positive about the economy. “The overall view after the last meeting in October was that the Fed actually came out a bit less concerned about the economy than I think most had expected,” said Doug Porter, chief economist at BMO Capital Markets. “I guess people were expecting some dovish remarks and, if anything, they sounded more comfortable with the economic backdrop.” There is a lot of unease about the prospect of the Fed tapering its bond purchases because this latest round of quantitative easing has kept long-term rates low and encouraged more people to invest in equity markets. The U.S. market has been a huge beneficiary of Fed stimulus, with the Dow industrials up over 20 per cent year to date. Both the Toronto and New York markets advanced last week, with the TSX ahead 0.8 per cent and the Dow industrials ahead 1.27 per cent. The gains reflected a comment by Fed chair-designate Janet Yellen that while the central bank appreciates the stimulus program can’t go on forever, “it is important not to remove support while the recovery is still fragile.” But “it is also important to remove accommodation when the right time comes,” Yellen told the Senate banking committee. Porter thinks that the minutes from the October meeting will give an indication of whether the Fed was “as comfortable with the economic outlook as it was in the press statement.” They will also tell markets how divided members of the Federal Open Market Committee are in carrying on with the asset purchases. It’s a soft week for economic data but the Canadian dollar could find some lift from the latest retail and inflation data coming out near the end of the week. Porter noted that retail sales have actually been relatively stable in recent months. “From what we’ve seen in auto sales, which were quite strong in the fall, and then home sales were quite strong as well, there’s little sign that the consumer is throwing in the towel,” Porter said. “It seems like Canadian consumer spending is hanging in there.” Economists reckon that retail sales rose by 0.2 per cent in October following a 0.2 per cent gain in September. Traders will also take in data that will likely show very little price pressure in the Canadian economy. “I think . . . one of the big stories, not just in Canada but across the industrialized world, is just how modest inflation is,” Porter said, noting that falling gasoline and food prices are helping to keep the lid on inflation. “I wouldn’t be shocked if overall inflation dropped below one per cent (annualized) on the month.” The consensus calls for the consumer price index to come in unchanged for October after rising by 0.2 per cent in September.


This Sept. 19, 2013 photo shows workers at the Target Technology Innovation Center office in San Francisco. Target Corp., based in Minneapolis is among a growing number of old-line retailers opening technology hubs in recent months in high-tech colonies, particularly in Silicon Valley and San Francisco.

Retailers open labs in Silicon Valley HIRE TOP TALENT, CREATE MOBILE APPS BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SAN FRANCISCO — Software engineers wearing jeans and flip flops test the latest smartphone apps. Walls and windows double as whiteboards where ideas are jotted down. And a mini basketball net is in the centre of it all. At first glance, this workplace resembles any Silicon Valley startup. There’s just one exception: Target’s trademark red bulls-eye at the entrance. Target, Kohl’s and home-shopping network QVC are among a half dozen retailers opening technology test labs in the San Francisco area to do things like improve their websites and create mobile shopping apps. They’re setting up shop in modern spaces and competing for top Silicon Valley talent to replicate the creativity, culture and nimbleness of online startups. The goal is to stay on top of tech trends and better compete with online rivals like that attract shoppers with convenient ordering and cheap prices. The labs are a shift for retailers, which like many older industries, have been slow to adapt to rapidly changing technology. But retailers say the labs are essential to satisfy shoppers who

more often are buying on their PCs, tablets and smartphones. “Consumers expect immediate gratification,” says Lori Schafer, executive adviser at SAS Institute, which creates software for retailers. As a result, she says retailers need to develop technology in weeks, instead of months or years. Retailers are playing catchup after several years of watching shoppers gradually move from physical stores to the Web. Online sales have grown from 5.9 per cent of the $2.64 trillion in total retail sales in 2009 to 7.6 per cent of the $3.1 trillion in revenue last year, according to Forrester Research. The explosion of people using smartphones to shop has pushed stores to move faster. U.S. consumers are now spending more than half of their time on retailers’ websites using their smartphones and tablets, according to the National Retail Federation, a retail trade group. Retailers knew they needed to figure out how to create online and mobile technology to please their shoppers. So they began looking to Silicon Valley, where they hoped to tap the talent, culture and creativity that come from tech giants like Facebook and Apple. Wal-Mart, the world’s largest

retailer, was the first to open a tech lab in Silicon Valley. Since opening Wal-MartLabs in San Bruno in 2011, the company has rolled out a number of technologies that it developed there. One of the biggest projects? Wal-Mart rebuilt its website’s search engine, which launched in 2012. It can guess a customer’s intent when he or she types a term rather than just returning specific search results. A search for “denim” yields results for “jeans” instead of products with “denim,” for example. Wal-Mart’s mobile app also has been a big focus at Wal-MartLabs, which has 1,200 workers and all the trappings of a Silicon Valley startup including treadmill desks and ping pong tables. For instance, Wal-MartLabs developed technology that enables Wal-Mart’s mobile app to help guide shoppers to products. It also developed technology that enables the mobile app to track customers’ spending based on a predetermined budget. Wal-Mart, which is based in Bentonville, Ark., says having a presence in Silicon Valley has been invaluable in part because it offers the company early access to technology entrepreneurs.

Canadians lack insurance knowledge TALBOT BOGGS


Replacement value, actual cash value, deductible, collision coverage, term and mortgage life insurance — these are relatively common-place components of modernday insurance policies, yet many Canadians don’t understand what these terms mean and don’t know whether they are adequately insured, reports by TD Insurance have found. According to TD’s report on the state of insurance, while the majority of Canadians review their policies at least once a year,

52 per cent wouldn’t ask their insurance provider to clarify details they don’t understand in their policies because they think it is too complicated, they don’t have the time and are embarrassed by their lack of knowledge, or they simply aren’t interested in finding out. Thirty-seven per cent admitted they didn’t bother to review or even skim over the fine print on their insurance policies. As a result, 23 per cent were upset to learn that they weren’t covered for something they

Harley Richards, Business Editor, 403-314-4337 E-mail


thought was covered and 15 per cent were pleasantly surprised to find out they had more coverage than they thought. David Minor, a vice-president at TD Insurance, encourages people to regularly review their policies, particularly at renewal time or when they reach milestones in life, and to talk to their insurance provider if there are things in their policies they don’t understand.

RED DEER ADVOCATE Monday, Nov. 18, 2013 A9


INSURANCE: Ask questions “If you come across conditions you are unfamiliar with in your policy, there’s no need to feel embarrassed or daunted to seek help. Speak with your insurance provider, whose job it is to clarify questions you have about your policy, to ensure you thoroughly understand your coverage and rights and responsibilities as a policy holder,” Minor said. “When you renew your insurance or reach a milestone in life — like buying a new car, a home or completing major renovations — spend some time reviewing your coverage,” Minor suggested. “Your insurance needs may change from one year to the next and your coverage could change too, so call your provider if you have any questions about adjustments or if your coverage no longer reflects your lifestyle.” Canadians’ lack of insurance knowledge even extends to minor car accidents, such as fender benders. TD Insurance found that although 89 per cent of Canadians are somewhat or extremely likely to know what they should do following an auto accident, only 31 per cent know the exact steps they should take. “Fender benders resulting from drivers making sudden stops in intersections or pulling out of a parking spot without checking first happen every day, so it’s important to be prepared and know what steps to take afterward,” Minor said. “(They) can affect your insurance coverage, so be sure to review the steps with your insurance provider when you renew your policy each year.” When speaking to the other party involved in the accident, don’t accept money or admit fault for the collision, and don’t agree just to forget about it. Accepting money or admitting guilt can affect the coverage their insurance company will provide for the accident. Check to make sure everyone is safe and no one is injured. If someone is injured, don’t move them because this could make the injury or injuries worse. If you can safely move your vehicle out of the flow of traffic and protect it from further damage, do. If someone is injured, if you believe there is major damage to your vehicle or if you think a criminal act has been committed, call 911. For non-emergency-related collisions, where no one is injured and damage is less than $1,000, you might call the police but they likely will refer you to go to your provincial collision reporting centre. Take notes, such as details of the accident, identification of the vehicles and the people involved, including emergency personnel or witnesses. If possible, take pictures or video and/or draw a diagram of the accident scene to help with the documentation of a claim. Twenty-eight per cent of drivers incorrectly believe they only need to report the accident to their insurance provider if their car has sustained significant damage. Most insurance policies require you to report any accident involving loss or damage to people or property. If you don’t report an accident it may affect your coverage later. If the other party notifies their provider, they may contact your provider, which could lead to cancellation or non-renewal of your policy if you have not reported the incident yourself. “At the end of the day, insurance should give you peace of mind,” said Minor. “If you feel uncertain and have questions about the terms and conditions within your policy, ask your insurance provider for clarification before you sign on the dotted line.” Talbot Boggs is a Toronto-based business communications professional who has worked with national news organizations, magazines and corporations in the finance, retail, manufacturing and other industrial sectors.

TELEVISION: Cord nevers Rosenquist said a real change will come in viewing with younger Canadians, calling them “cord nevers,” an industry term used to describe those who don’t bother at all getting a TV subscription. They will only consider a television subscription if it suits their budget, he said. “They will wait until Bell or Rogers, Shaw or Telus comes out with something that they say, ‘Yeah, that’s worth paying $25 a month,”’ said Rosenquist. Traditional television is still tops over Internet viewing, though, because TV providers have more money to buy programming than Netflix or other online competitors, said Mota. “The biggest complaint about Netflix in Canada is there still isn’t enough content,” he said, estimating that Netflix Canada has between 2.5 million and 3 million subscribers. “Can you have a sufficient menu of content that will keep people in your universe and that’s where television remains king,” Mota said. Convergence Group’s Eiley said Netflix is paying $2.5 billion a year for programming while North America’s TV providers pay $50 billion yearly. “As Netflix has to negotiate or make new deals, it will have to pay much more for content. At some point, push is going to come to shove with Netflix and they’re either going to have to raise prices or cut their programming spend.”

LABS: Technology pitched For example, two years ago, Wal-MartLabs met the founders of a startup called Grabble as they were in Silicon Valley pitching their technology that enables customers to get receipts for their purchases by email. Wal-Mart has since bought the startup, hired the founders, and next year, shoppers will be able to get the so-called e-receipts. The company says it’s so pleased with its results at Wal-MartLabs that it plans to open another tech office in nearby Sunnyvale in January. It also has smaller tech hubs elsewhere. “We are not a retailer in Silicon Valley,” says Neil Ashe, CEO of Wal-Mart’s global e-commerce operations. “We are building an Internet technology company inside the largest retailer.” Teen retailer American Eagle opened its tech centre in San Francisco in July. The 10,000-squarefoot location is filled with movable desks to encourage spontaneous brainstorming sessions among its 20 workers. The goal: to get to know more about American Eagle’s customers. Among its projects is an effort to consolidate the personal data of American Eagle customers, including their shopping history, from the company’s email campaigns and loyalty programs. The retailer wants to gain information that would help it better target its marketing around a customer’s buying habits. Executives at American Eagle, which is based in Pittsburgh, say that’s just the beginning of the types of technology that could come out of its Silicon Valley centre. Joe Megibow, a senior vice-president and director of American Eagle’s tech centre, says he envisions a future when customers can go into the store and have the clerk pull up information on a tablet, such as the shopper’s email address and buying history.


UAE pilots greet each other at the steps of a Boeing C-17 Globemaster III, a large military transport aircraft of the UAE Air forces during the opening day of the Dubai Airshow in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Sunday. Boeing Co.’s planned 777X long-haul airliner grabbed the bulk of orders Sunday at the first day of the Dubai Airshow, with at least 225 planes on the books in an eye-popping display of the spending power and aggressive expansion efforts of Gulf carriers.

Boeing: Gulf airlines place record orders for 225 new jets BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Boeing Co.’s planned 777X longhaul airliner grabbed the bulk of orders Sunday at the first day of the Dubai Airshow, with at least 225 planes on the books in an eyepopping display of the spending power and aggressive expansion efforts of Gulf carriers. In total, Boeing says that it netted at least 367 orders in deals believed to exceed $130 billion at the Middle East’s premier aviation fair. Boeing CEO James McNerney Jr. called it part of the “largest commercial launch in aviation history” for a planned aircraft: the bigger and more fuelefficient model of the company’s popular 777 wide-body. European rival Airbus opened the five-day airshow by announcing a $23 billion order for 50 A380s — its main competition for the 777X — by Dubai-based Emirates. The Dubai Airshow is seen as an increasingly important barometer on the state of the industry and the rising roles of the bigspending Gulf carriers Etihad, Qatar Airways and Emirates as they compete for routes and critical stopover traffic between Asia and Europe and the Americas.

This year’s edition appears on track to surpass the record $155 billion in deals in the 2007 event before the global economic downturn. For Boeing and Airbus, the Dubai event has become a key battleground for new aircraft and big-ticket orders that can shape the companies’ outlooks for years. Boeing received orders for 150 777X planes from Emirates, 50 from Qatar Airways and 25 from Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Airways, the U.S.-based manufacturer and the airlines announced in separate news conferences. No total price tag was announced, but it exceeded $100 billion. Boeing also inked deals with Etihad for 30 of its 78710 Dreamliners and one cargo plane, and with budget carrier flydubai for 111 of its single-aisle 737 models. The Dreamliner deal is an important nod of support in the Gulf for the troubled aircraft, which has suffered groundings in the past year over battery problems. The 777X orders come even as Chicago-based Boeing looks for alternative sites to develop the plane after machinists in the Seattle area rejected a long-term contract. The long-range, twin-aisle 777 holds about 365 passengers, mak-

ing it Boeing’s second-biggest plane. Since its first flight in 1994, it’s been a bestseller for Boeing, which has sold more 777s than any of its other current large planes. In May, it began offering the revamped 777X. Boeing is still finalizing plans for the plane — aiming to deliver the first aircraft by the end of the decade — but it has said it is expected to carry as many as 400 passengers and to be 20 per cent more fuel efficient than the current 777. Previously, Lufthansa had made a commitment for 34 of the 777X. The airshow is also giving Dubai a chance to display its huge new airport south of the city, which officially opened last month but is still under construction in some areas. Dubai’s current airport is to be eventually shifted to the new Maktoum International facility, which officials say could one day handle 160 million passengers a year as part of the region’s growing profile as a global aviation hub. In the Middle East, 40,000 pilots and 53,000 technicians will be needed in the next two decades to keep up with demand, according to a Boeing forecast.

Bourbon revival beginning in downtown Louisville with small-batch distilleries THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The maker of Evan Williams bourbon has uncorked a new attraction, opening a craft distillery just steps from where the whiskey pioneer who inspired the brand fired up his own commercial stills two centuries ago. The distillery and “bourbon experience” — complete with tours and tasting rooms — is the first of several ventures to bolster tourism and bring small-batch bourbon production to the heart of downtown Louisville, once the hub of commerce for Kentucky whiskey makers. Today’s powerhouse bourbon brands such as Jim Beam, Wild Turkey and Maker’s Mark are crafted in rural Kentucky settings, an hour or less away, but the trade is showing signs of a comeback in the city. An urban bourbon trail features 27 bars and restaurants, each stocked with at least 50 labels, and a planned bourbon district would tie together the city’s bourbon heritage with historical markers and landmarks in the Whiskey Row area, where clusters of whiskey merchants, wholesalers and blenders set up shop decades ago. “It’s the place to be,” said Joe Magliocco, president of Michter’s Distillery LLC, which is converting a downtown building into a craft distillery. “If you want to be one

of the best, you’ve got to play among the best.” Heaven Hill, which makes Evan Williams, is at the forefront with its new $10.5 million attraction — The Evan Williams Bourbon Experience. It’s located in a renovated building and offers tours that trace bourbon production from frontier days when whiskey was currency to its contemporary revival in bars and restaurants across the globe. It features a five-story Evan Williams bottle replica and of course, it has a gift shop, too. It opened to the public Friday. Kentucky produces 95 per cent of the world’s bourbon, and the 4.9 million barrels of aging bourbon in this state outnumber the population here, according to the Kentucky Distillers’ Association. As demand worldwide has spiked, the state’s bourbon production has risen more than 120 per cent since 1999 to more than 1 million barrels in 2012, the industry group said. More than 2.5 million visitors have toured the major distilleries along the Kentucky Bourbon


Trail in the past five years, the group said. Heaven Hill’s attraction, located on Whiskey Row, will be the northern gateway to the trail. Despite its bourbon prowess, the Bluegrass state hasn’t kept pace with other parts of the country in attracting upstart craft distillers. Kentucky ranks eighth nationally in distilled spirits permits, said Kentucky Distillers’ Association President Eric Gregory, citing federal statistics. California ranks first, followed by Washington state, New York and Oregon. Kentucky’s tax on aging whiskey barrels has been an obstacle, he said. Still, he’s working with 10 craft distillers setting up shop in Kentucky. “The next craft distiller, in 20, 30 or 40 years, could be the next Maker’s Mark,” Gregory said. At The Evan Williams Experience, the star is Williams himself, a Welsh immigrant and early commercial distiller in Kentucky who started in 1783. During a tour of the distillery, projections on the walls and TVs delve into bourbon making

and detail Williams’ life as a city trustee, wharf master and distiller as the aroma of fermenting whiskey and aging barrels waft by. “This is where the industry really started,” said Max L. Shapira, president of Heaven Hill. Its flagship Evan Williams brand is the second-largest selling bourbon in the U.S. and the world, behind Jim Beam. At the downtown distillery, whiskey makers will craft special recipes and produce one barrel per day, a drop in the barrel compared to the company’s distillery a few miles away that churns out some 650 barrels daily. Several other whiskey makers are planning craft distilleries nearby. Bourbon entrepreneur Corky Taylor is reviving his great-grandfather’s company, Kentucky Peerless Distilling, and hopes to start producing bourbon and moonshine in July. His line of spirits will include a premium bourbon, aged eight years, named after his greatgrandfather, Henry Kraver, who ran a distillery in western Kentucky nearly a century ago.

Identical twins share breast cancer 34-YEAR-OLD SISTERS ALSO SHARE A RARE RECONSTRUCTION BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO — Identical twins Kelly McCarthy and Kristen Maurer have shared a lot in their lives so when one was diagnosed with breast cancer, she urged the other to get tested, too. “You just do everything together, don’t you,” the doctor told Maurer before delivering the bad news that she, too, had the disease. Now the 34-year-old twins from Crown Point, Ind., are sharing a medical rarity: Maurer donated skin and fat tissue for McCarthy’s breast reconstruction. “It wasn’t a question, she didn’t have to ask me,” said Maurer, a college enrolment counsellor. “Having a twin is very like having a child. You would do anything for them ... in a heartbeat.” The first successful organ transplant was between identical twins in Boston in 1954 and involved a kidney. Since then, identical twins have been involved in many other transplant operations, involving kidneys and other organs, bone marrow, and stem cells. But breast reconstruction between identical twins has only been done a handful of times; Maurer and McCarthy, a nurse, are among the youngest patients. Identical twins are ideal donors because their skin, tissue and organs are perfect genetic matches, explained Dr. David Song, chief of plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Chicago Medical Center. And that eliminates the need for anti-rejection medicine, he said. Song performed the twins’ surgeries on Tuesday and both fared well. Typically, breast reconstruction surgery involves implants and/or a woman’s own tissue, sometimes taken from the abdomen, thighs or buttocks. But McCarthy is among women who don’t have enough extra tissue; plus, radiation treatment damaged tissue near her breasts. So Maurer offered to be a donor. McCarthy said her sister’s sacrifice, “just so I can feel better about myself ... is really humbling.”


This Monday, Nov. 11, 2013 photo shows identical twins Kristen Maurer, left, and Kelly McCarthy at Kelly’s mother-in-law’s house in Beecher, Ill. The 34-year-old sisters from Crown Point, Ind., have shared a lot in their lives so when Kelly was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011, she urged Kristen to get tested, too. Kristen also was diagnosed with breast cancer. With their blonde bobs, sparkling brown eyes and easy, engaging smiles, the twins are clearly mirror images of each other. Discovering breast cancer in identical twins isn’t unusual because of their exact genetic makeup, Song said. With twins, there’s also often a “mirroring effect,” with breast cancer developing in the opposite breast, he said. That’s what happened with McCarthy and Maurer. While their mother died from colon cancer last year, there was no family history of breast cancer. McCarthy was diagnosed first, in December 2011, with triple-negative breast cancer, a hard-to-treat form of

cancer whose growth is not fueled by hormones. She was nine months pregnant and her son was born a week later. Soon after she started treatment, chemotherapy, surgery to remove her right breast, and radiation. Maurer was diagnosed with a very early-stage cancer in her left breast a few months after her sister. “Kelly was more upset than I was during my diagnosis, and likewise, when she was diagnosed I was a mess,” Maurer said. Maurer had a double mastectomy, recommended because her sister’s cancer was so aggressive, but she didn’t need chemotherapy or radiation. She had reconstruction with implants af-

ter the birth of her second child last March. McCarthy’s operation this week involved a second mastectomy, and reconstruction of both breasts. Some of her own tissue was used to fashion one breast. At the same time, surgeons essentially performed a “tummy tuck” on Maurer, removing lower abdominal skin and fat tissue and transplanted it to her sister to create a second new breast. The twins have always been extremely close, sometimes speaking in unison or completing each other’s sentences. But now, McCarthy said, “I feel closer. Her tissue is over my heart.”

Study says long-term health affected by premature birth RISK A BIT HIGHER FOR BOYS BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON — Boys are slightly more likely to be born premature than girls, and they tend to fare worse, too, says a new report on the health of the world’s newborns. “This is a double whammy for boys,” said Dr. Joy Lawn of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, who led the team of researchers. “It’s a pattern that happens all over the world.” The gender difference isn’t large: About 55 per cent of preterm births in 2010 were male, the report found. Nor is it clear exactly why it happens. The finding comes from a series of international studies being published Friday that examine newborn health and prematurity. About 15 million babies worldwide are born too soon, most of them in Africa and parts of Asia where survival is difficult for fragile

newborns. Globally, about 1 million babies die as a direct result of preterm birth and another million die of conditions for which prematurity is an added risk, the researchers calculated. Friday’s report offers some of the first estimates of how many preemie survivors go on to suffer certain disabilities, and found that where these babies are born, and how early, determines their risk. Overall, Lawn said about 7 per cent of survivors have two of the most burdensome disabilities: neurologic-developmental impairment ranging from learning disabilities to cerebral palsy, and vision loss. But the biggest risk is to the youngest preemies, those born before 28 weeks gestation. Worldwide, 52 per cent of them are estimated to have some degree of neurodevelopmental impairment, the report found. Moreover, the risk of impairment in middle-income countries is double

that of wealthy countries like the U.S. For example, China is saving more preemies’ lives but at the cost of their vision, Lawn said. Middle-income countries are missing out on a lesson the U.S. learned the hard way several decades ago, that giving these tiny babies too much oxygen can trigger a potentially blinding condition called retinopathy of prematurity. “Disability is not something that’s inevitable. It’s preventable,” she said, calling for improved quality of care including eye checks to prevent or reduce vision loss. The March of Dimes reported this month that 11.5 per cent of U.S. births now are preterm. That rate is inching down, thanks mostly to fewer babies being born just a few weeks early as standards for elective deliveries have tightened, but it still is higher than in similar countries. For the public, the gender differ-

ence may be the most surprising finding of Friday’s report, although Dr. Edward McCabe of the March of Dimes says pediatric specialists have long noticed that baby boys start out a bit more vulnerable. “People are curious about it. We’d like to understand why this occurs,” McCabe said. One possible reason: Mothers have a higher risk of certain pregnancy complications — high blood pressure and placenta abnormalities — when carrying boys, Lawn said. And if a boy preemie and a girl preemie are born at the same gestational age, the boy will be at higher risk of death or disability, she said. But Friday’s report concluded there is too little information to quantify how big that risk is. “Girls walk sooner than boys. They talk sooner than boys. They develop more quickly. That’s also true in utero,” Lawn said.

New releases focus on Nebraska, Rome, Bucharest BY GREG EVANS AND CRAIG SELIGMAN ADVOCATE NEWS SERVICES


Toni Servillo and Sabrina Ferilli star in The Great Beauty. certificate, but that would pop the bubble that Nebraska so coyly blows. Handsomely filmed in stark black and white, Nebraska feels artificial, an overly fanciful ode to a make-believe Midwest where folks still call underwear “bloomers” and get bees in their bonnets. ● Nebraska, from Paramount Pictures, is playing in New York and Los Angeles. As a promising young author in Rome, Jep Gambardella (Toni Servillo) abandoned his talent to become king of the city’s high life. He never wrote a second novel, he says, because he never found “the great beauty” he was looking for. Jep is a fool: that beauty is all around him. His breathtaking apartment overlooks

the Coliseum and every palazzo he dines in, every monument he passes, even every strip club he frequents is a heavenly version of the standard model. ● Paolo Sorrentino’s The Great Beauty lives up to its title: It’s resplendent, it’s ravishing. Sorrentino’s restlessly tracking camera accompanies Jep through a fantasy of Rome, devoid of graffiti, as scrubbed and sparkling as Paris. Rather than trying to tamp down Fellini’s influence, Sorrentino puts it on ostentatious display— in his caged society beasts, his fashion-plate clergy and faces rendered as gloriously freakish masks -- and then soars beyond it.

Honorary Oscars bring stars to tears LOS ANGELES — Angelina Jolie, Steve Martin and Angela Lansbury were moved to tears at the film academy’s fifth annual Governors Awards. Each of the entertainers accepted honorary Oscar statuettes Saturday at a private dinner at the Hollywood & Highland Center. Italian costume designer Piero Tosi was also honoured, but did not attend the ceremony. Jolie received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award. Before guests including Brad Pitt and a man Jolie cited as “my hero,” WWII veteran and Olympian Louis Zamperini, the 38-year-old actress-director became emotional as she thanked her late mother, whom she said inspired her to think of others and give back. “To stand here today means I did as she asked,” Jolie said. “And if she were alive, she’d be very proud.” Tom Hanks and Martin Short helped present Martin with his honorary Oscar, which Short described as “the highest honour an actor can receive in mid-November.” Accepting recognition for his distinguished career, Martin said, “I can’t possibly express how I excited I am tonight, because the Botox is fresh.” But the 68-year-old got misty eyed as he reflected on the dear friends he’s made during his five decades in film. “I knew I wasn’t going to make it through this speech,” he said. “I read it to my dog this morning and wept.” Lansbury recited a list of her famous co-stars as she accepted her honorary Academy Award: Ingrid Bergman, Bette Davis, Frank Sinatra, Katharine Hepburn, Clark Gable, Lawrence Olivier and Orson Welles.

In Alexander Payne’s heartfelt, if jerryrigged, Nebraska, an old man’s newfound childlike wonder is attributed to nothing so brutal as Alzheimer’s or years of harddrinking. “He just believes what people tell him,” says his son, with the sort of deadpan whimsy that marks (and mars) so much of Payne’s work, from About Schmidt to The Descendants. A late-career kiss for the Oscar-hunting Bruce Dern, the quirky Nebraska is less convincing as Middle-American eulogy. There’s more than a whiff of condescension here. Dern plays Woody Grant (how’s that for American Gothic?), a grouchy Korean War vet with a shrill wife (June Squibb, stealing scenes as befits a foul-mouthed granny), two emotionally distant sons and a lifelong love of alcohol as unruly as the gray hairs sprouting from his nostrils. Toting a junk-mail sweepstakes letter that he thinks will make him rich, Woody recruits son David (an earnest Will Forte) to embark on the 800-mile-plus road trip from Billings, Mont., to the Lincoln, Neb., to claim his prize. Anywhere else but in this movie, Woody’s quest would evidence a high level of dementia. Nebraska is far too precious to entertain that notion. “The guy just needs something to live for,” David tells his less understanding brother (Bob Odenkirk), and there you have the message, barely 10 minutes into the film. Father and son then go off-route to visit Woody’s hometown, where taciturn men have monosyllabic conversations and longlost moochers (including Woody’s sleazy old business partner, well played by Stacy Keach) make claims on the fantasy winnings. Of course David could clear up all misunderstandings by producing the ludicrous

MOVIES: A trick In the character of a witchy, century-old saint who heals the sick in Africa (where she feeds solely on roots), he moves, in four masterly steps, from weirdness to satire to enchantment to transcendence. The startling appearance of a giraffe recalls the vision of the peacock in the snow in Fellini’s Amarcord. Sorrentino puts a magician among his big cast so he can have him tell Jep (after he makes the animal vanish), “It’s just a trick.” Jep, thinking at last about another novel, applies those words to art. It’s a trick, and it’s a great deal more. The Great Beauty, from Janus Films, is playing in New York. ● Shia LaBeouf, in the aimless adventure Charlie Countryman, can see dead people, until it no longer suits the plot. LaBeouf plays the title character, a rudderless, amiable Chicago slacker whose just-deceased mom (Melissa Leo) pays one last, advice-filled visit. “Go to Bucharest,” she says, with no further explanation. Charlie encounters his second ghost on the flight over, after a chatty old Romanian reaches his final destination well before the plane lands. At the dead man’s request, Charlie seeks out Gabi (Evan Rachel Wood, with raccoon eye shadow and heavy accent), plunging headlong into a cat-andmouse game with Gabi’s violent husband (Mads Mikkelsen). LaBeouf is his usual cocky, watchable self, but Charlie Countryman can’t concoct any credible reason for him or us to stay abroad. Charlie Countryman, from Millennium Entertainment, is playing in select theaters and on VOD platforms. Greg Evans and Craig Seligman write for 2013, Bloomberg News.

Tim McGraw, Faith Hill brush off divorce rumours STARTING SECOND LAS VEGAS STRIP RESIDENCY BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LAS VEGAS — Tim McGraw and Faith Hill brushed off tabloid divorce rumours as they powered into an encore run of Soul2Soul, a Las Vegas Strip residency that drew sellout crowds in its first season and is scheduled for 10 select weekends through April. The country music royals sat close and bantered with each other before a doubleheader of shows Friday at the Venetian resort, telling reporters they’ve outlasted split rumours that started from the first weeks of their 17-year marriage. “I wish people would stop buying that stuff, and I wish they’d just stop printing that stuff,” Hill said of the tabloids. “Happy is good. I don’t know why happy can’t be a story.” The show, which squeezes the electricity of an arena production into a 1,800-seat theatre with a live band, is a tag team of hits drawn from two decades of their separate, stellar careers. McGraw saunters across the stage with an electric guitar slung across his back, face half-hid in the shadow of a black cowboy hat as he drawls Real Good Man. “He has this charisma and this unexplainable presence. It’s magnetic, and it’s incredible,” Hill said about her husband, whose current hits, including Southern Girl, follow a laundry list of nearly three dozen chart-toppers. “I just feel like an amateur every single

A black costume she wears later in the show evokes both wings and a shroud as she moves between the

sensuous Breathe and mournful Like We Never Loved at All. “She walks out and just opens her mouth and it comes out so beautifully and soulfully,” McGraw said.

SNL joins the skewer-Rob-Ford bandwagon BY THE CANADIAN PRESS NEW YORK — Saturday Night Live has joined its late night TV brethern in claiming a stake in the Rob Ford comedy gold mine, lampooning Toronto’s embattled mayor over his erratic behaviour. The NBC show opened with cast member Bobby Moynihan portraying Ford in a skit that parodied the mayor’s repeated public apologies for such things as smoking crack, buying drugs, driving after drinking and using vulgar language on live TV. The Ford character would issue a chastened apology for

actions unbecoming and then quickly follow it with an expletive laced rant against his critics. At one point Moynihan ducks behind the lectern to do a drug deal, and then is heard exclaiming “WOW! ... that’s a lot of crack.” The sketch also mocked the many unflattering photographs of Ford that have graced front pages since the scandal erupted with reports of a video that appeared to show the mayor using crack cocaine. Ford was again targeted on the show’s Weekend Update segment with co-hosts Seth Meyers and Cesily Strong. They took aim at the crude

sexual remarks the mayor recently made to City Hall reporters and also the booming sales of Rob Ford bobble head dolls. “Interesting fact,” Meyers joked, “bobble head is one of the side effects of smoking crack.” SNL joined the pantheon of shows for whom Rob Ford has provided a veritable joke treasure chest. David Letterman, Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and several others have had a field day with the on-going Ford train wreck. On a somewhat more serious note, dozens of demonstrators gathered outside city hall

Saturday morning to demand that Rob Ford leave office immediately. They said the current moves by city councillors to strip him of his mayoral powers don’t go far enough. The protesters accused Ford of being a buffoon who has deeply embarrassed both himself and his city, and said he needs to step aside — now. Today, city council will vote on a motion that would see Ford’s office and budget essentially moved to the control of the deputy mayor. Ford is threatening a court fight over council’s actions.

Rebels hold off Hurricanes in OT SECONDARY PLAYERS PLAY MAJOR ROLE IN ROAD VICTORY BY GREG MEACHEM ADVOCATE SPORTS EDITOR Rebels 4 Hurricanes 3 (OT) The secondary foot soldiers were front and centre for the Red Deer Rebels in Saturday’s 4-3 Western Hockey League win over the host Lethbridge Hurricanes. “It says a lot about their growth and their development,” said Rebels GM/head coach Brent Sutter, in reference to his third- and fourth-line forwards coming up huge in the contest. “They’re getting better by playing a lot. They get better each game.” Wyatt Johnson scored the winner at 1:20 of overtime to lift the Rebels past the ‘Canes in front of 2,962 fans at the Enmax Centre, one of three Red Deer bottom-six forwards to beat Lethbridge netminders Christopher Tai — who started — and Corbin Boes, who came in midway through the first period with his club trailing 2-1. Evan Polei beat Boes with his first goal of the season at 12:56 of the first period for a 3-1 Red Deer lead, just two minutes after assisting on Cole Chorney’s

third of the season. Polei, a six-foot-one, 225-pound left winger, has become a valuable member of the Rebels’ bottom-six forwards in recent games. “He’s a power-forward type of guy and he scored a great goal last night,” Sutter said Sunday. “Every shift he was on the ice he was creating something. He also stuck up for a teammate and got into a heck of a fight. “Again, it’s about getting more accustomed to the league and developing. He understands what he is as a player. He’s an up-and-down winger who has to play a power game and be physically engaged, and that’s something we continue to work with him on.” The ‘Canes led 1-0 on Tyler Wong’s goal 5:49 into the contest, but Rhyse Dieno pulled the Rebels even less than three minutes later and Chorney and Polei put the visitors up 3-1 before the first intermission. Lenny Hackman and Brady Ramsay, on the power play, pulled the ‘Canes even with unanswered second-period goals, setting the stage for a scoreless third period and the overtime tally by Johnson, who buried a rebound from in front of the Lethbridge net. Hackman’s goal followed a pair of Red Deer fiveon-three power plays during which the visitors were unable to cash in.

“We played really well up to the second five-onthree. We didn’t score and they came right back down and scored 20 second later,” said Sutter. “That kind of put us on our heels a bit. Then we took a penalty right after and they scored again. “They had the momentum going into the third, but we got back to playing our game again.” Boes and Tai combined to make 31 saves, while Patrik Bartosak turned aside 31 shots for the Rebels. Sutter left for Ottawa today and will miss Wednesday’s game against the visiting Kootenay Ice. The Rebels bench boss, on a scouting mission as head coach of the Canadian national team for this year’s World Junior Hockey Championship, will attend Subway Super Series games tonight and Wednesday featuring Team Quebec against Team Russia in Gatineau and Sherbrooke, and Team Ontario versus Russia Thursday at Oshawa. Sutter will return to Red Deer for Friday and Saturday games at the Centrium against the Regina Pats and Prince George Cougars. Team Russia will face Team WHL in Super Series games Nov. 27 and 28 at the Centrium and in Lethbridge.

Roughriders going home for Grey Cup BY THE CANADIAN PRESS Roughriders 35 Stampeders 13 CALGARY — The dream scenario for the host city of a Grey Cup is having the home team in it. The Saskatchewan Roughriders made the Regina organizing committee and their fans happy Sunday with a 35-13 upset of the Calgary Stampeders in the West Division final. Chants of “Henry, Henry” rang out in the visitors’ locker room at McMahon Stadium. Saskatchewan will face the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and quarterback Henry Burris in next Sunday’s Grey Cup at Mosaic Stadium. The Roughriders will attempt to become the third host team in a row to win the CFL’s championship trophy. The Argonauts beat Calgary in Toronto last year to take the Cup and the B.C. Lions won it in Vancouver in 2011. “That’s another part of the storyline, but for us, it’s about having a Grey Cup at home,” Roughrider quarterback Darian Durant said. “We know how hard it is to come to Mosaic for opposing teams. To have forty or forty-five thousand Rider fans, it’s going to be great.” The Ticats punched their ticket to this year’s championship game with a 36-24 win over the Argonauts in the East Division final earlier Sunday. This year’s Grey Cup features teams that finished second in their respective divisions and needed to win division semifinals and finals to get there. “We know Rider Nation is fired up,” Durant said. “They deserve it and it’s going to be a fun week.” Saskatchewan last played in the Grey Cup in 2009 and 2010 and lost to the Montreal Alouettes in both games.

Calgary boasted the best regular-season record in the CFL at 14-4, but could not hang onto the ball Sunday. The No. 1 offence in the regular season turned the football over seven times and had possession of it for just eight minutes and 43 seconds in the first half. “It’s hard to explain,” Calgary head coach John Hufnagel said. “Obviously we’re a little bit in shock the way the game unfolded. Having that many turnovers to ruin the game (and) to have that type of tackling by our team, it’s hard to explain.” Trailing 22-6 at halftime, Hufnagel replaced starting quarterback Kevin Glenn with Drew Tate, but the Stampeders managed just one touchdown in the second. Durant completed 24-of30 passes for 280 yards with touchdown passes to Rob Bagg, Weston Dressler and Chris Getzlaf. Running back Kory Sheets scored on a one-yard touchdown plunge. Kicker Chris Milo made two field goals in the fourth quarter after his first of the game was blocked. Calgary’s Rene Paredes made both of his field-goal attempts. Tate threw a touchdown pass to Joe West. Glenn completed 7-of-13 passes for 180 yards and was intercepted twice. Tate was 5 for 11 for 90 yards. Calgary was minus-4 in rushing yards in the first half. Stampeder running back Jon Cornish, the CFL’s leading rusher this season, mustered 67 yards in the game. Sheets finished second in rushing to Cornish, but romped for 177 yards Sunday. “Tonight was just about the team winning and team goals,” Sheets said. “There was nothing individual, nothing personal.”

Burris outduels Ray to lead Ticats to Grey Cup BY THE CANADIAN PRESS

Tiger-Cats 36 Argonauts 24 TORONTO — Two years after being told by the Calgary Stampeders he wasn’t good enough, Henry Burris is returning to the Grey Cup. The 38-year-old quarterback rallied the Hamilton Tiger-Cats from a 14-point deficit en route to a wild 36-24 win over the Toronto Argonauts in the East Division final Sunday afternoon. Burris cut Toronto’s half-time lead to 24-17 with a late TD strike, then led Hamilton to a 27-24 advantage heading into the fourth. After watching Argos star quarterback Ricky Ray tear it up in the first half, Burris outperformed Ray in the second to lead Hamilton to its first Grey Cup berth since ’99. “Somebody pinch me, I still think I’m dreaming right now,” Burris said. “For the past four years I’ve been through a lot, guys. “One organization told me, basically, I wasn’t good enough and traded me to Hamilton. And during the course of this year people doubted what I could do and to come out here with our team and accomplish this is huge.” Burris’s 14-yard TD pass to Greg Ellingson capped a 68-yard march to open the second half and made it 2424. Burris then drove Hamilton to set up Luca Congi’s 23-yard field goal for a 27-24 lead entering the fourth. Burris was especially cool when Hamilton took possession at its own 38 with 6:55 remaining. He marched the

Ticats to the Toronto 14-yard line — hitting Bakari Grant on a key 25-yard completion on second-and-19 — to set up Congi’s 20-yard boot to make it 30-24 with 1:14 remaining. Ray marched Toronto from its 35 to the Hamilton 44 before turning the ball over on downs with 53 seconds remaining. Chad Owens fielded Josh Bartel’s punt on the game’s final play but fumbled with Ticats’ special-teams star Marc Beswick recovering in the end zone. Burris’s heroics came before a raucous Rogers Centre gathering of 35,418 — that included embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford — for the first East final between the longtime rivals since ’86. That’s the largest CFL attendance in the facility since over 50,000 spectators witnessed Toronto’s 35-22 win over Calgary in the 100th Grey Cup game last November. Much like Toronto’s historic Grey Cup win, the atmosphere inside Rogers Centre on Sunday was electric. Horns blared loudly throughout, Ticats supporters, who clearly outnumbered their Toronto counterparts, chanted the traditional “Argos Suck” refrain while the Double Blue faithful countered with “Let’s Go Argos.” “It was unbelievable our fan support,” Ticats coach Kent Austin said. “I thought we were playing at home.” Burris was the CFL’s outstanding player with Calgary in 2010 but was replaced by Drew Tate as the starter the following season.

Oilers rally late to down Flames BY THE CANADIAN PRESS Oilers 4 Flames 2 CALGARY — An ugly goal for the Calgary Flames and goaltender Reto Berra was a thing of beauty for the desperate Edmonton Oilers. From near the corner and below the goal line, David Perron flung the puck towards the net, banking it off Berra’s shoulder and in for the go-ahead goal as Edmonton snapped a five-game losing streak Saturday night with a 4-2 come-from-behind victory over the Calgary Flames. Boyd Gordon capped the scoring into an empty net as the Oilers stormed back with four unanswered goals in the third period to steal the first of five meetings between the provincial rivals. “I’d be kidding if I said I knew I would score but I saw a little bit of room, I put it there and it was in the net so it felt good,” said Perron. Just over two minutes earlier, the Oilers tied the game 2-2 on another strange one. Sam Gagner’s shot deflected off Flames defenceman Dennis Wideman and fluttered high in the air. While Berra couldn’t find it, Ales Hemsky batted it in from out of mid-air for his first goal in 12 games. Edmonton started its comeback at 3:41 when Jordan Eberle, who was uncovered in the slot, took a drop pass from Taylor Hall and ripped a shot over Berra’s blocker. The three-goal barrage happened in a span of 6:42 and came on four shots. “We gave them two goals out of three,” said Flames coach Bob Hartley, visibly unhappy. “After 40 minutes, I felt that we gave them nothing. We were playing our style. Then, their first goal and third goal, there’s only one word for those two goals - awful.” Edmonton (5-15-2), which began the night in last place in the NHL, won for just the

second time in its last 12 (2-91). Sean Monahan and Wideman scored for Calgary (6-113). The Flames are winless in their last six, and are 0-4-1 in their last five games at the Scotiabank Saddledome. “We have a lot of pressure on us from our team itself, from the organization, from the fans, they expect us to win and when you’re not winning, it kills the confidence on your team,” said Eberle. “You start making plays that you’re not used to making, you start squeezing the stick and you start not playing as a team.” Eberle himself had been in a lengthy slump with just one goal in his previous 12 games. “Momentum is a huge thing in this game. When things aren’t going, you sometimes get pissed off and try to do things yourself and that’s when things start breaking down even more,” said Eberle. “So when you finally get rewarded and get some confidence, we’re going to use that.” Oilers coach Dallas Eakins says the smallest of things can turn around a team’s fortunes and he hopes this result will provide that boost for his team. He used Philadelphia’s recent 3-0-1 run as an example. “We were in a close game with them. We end up losing the game, they had been on the down and out and it seemed like every time I look at the scoreboard lately, they’ve been winning,” Eakins said. “When you get that winning feeling again, it’s contagious. Just like when you have that losing feeling, it’s contagious too.” The first of five meetings between the provincial rivals featured the teams ranked 13th and 14th in the Western Conference. The Flames remain three points up on Oilers, although they are 12 points back of a playoff spot. “Great start. In the first two

Then, in 10 or 12 minutes, we lost the game, so that’s really disappointing and nobody in this locker-room can be happy,” said former Oilers defenceman Ladislav Smid. “We have to learn how to finish those kind of games. We knew they have lots of talent over there. We should have just played the same game for 60 minutes, no matter what happened.” Devan Dubnyk had a great night for the Oilers making 33 saves to improve to 4-10-1. It comes on the same night that

newly signed Ilya Bryzgalov picked up a win in his second AHL conditioning start, allowing only one goal in Oklahoma City’s 4-1 victory over Abbotsford. Making his sixth start in the last seven games, Berra had 19 saves to fall to 1-4-1. Calgary took a 2-0 lead at 17:08 of the second period on a rocket off the stick of Wideman. Dubnyk never saw it as he was screened on the play by Lee Stempniak. Sean Monahan gave the Flames a 1-0 lead at 12:23. It was the first goal in seven

games for Calgary’s 2013 first round draft pick and just his second in the last 12 after he started the season with six in his first eight. It also marked the first time Calgary held a lead after the first period in three weeks. In the previous eight games, the Flames had been outscored 11-1 in the opening 20 minutes. The game began with a throwback to the old days of the Battle of Alberta as heavyweights Brian McGrattan and Luke Gazdic squared off in a lengthy fight that fired up the crowd.

Raptors’ late surge not enough in loss to Blazers Trailblazers 118 Raptors 110 OT TORONTO — A steady hand and cool demeanour helped Damian Lillard and the Portland Trail Blazers. Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge scored 25 points each as Portland shot its way to a 118-110 overtime victory over the Toronto Raptors on Sunday. Nicolas Batum added a season-high 24, and the Blazers overcame a late push by Toronto to pick up their sixth straight victory. “We didn’t have a reason to be all riled up,” Lillard said. “They played well getting back into the game. I think we were calm because we knew what we needed to do to win the game and we were able to get that done.” Portland (8-2) held a three-point halftime lead after giving up 58 per cent shooting to the Raptors (4-7) in the first half. Outscoring Toronto 22-15 in the third quarter, the Trail Blazers took a 10-point advantage into the fourth where they continued to connect from downtown. Despite leading by as many as 17


WEST: Missing Calgary was without starting defensive tackles Micah Johnson and Demonte Bolden because of knee injuries suffered in the final game of the regular season. The Roughriders keyed on replacements Junior Turner and Freddie Bishop III. “They were missing their two big plugs inside and we knew that going in,” Durant said. “We wanted to exploit that, especially with two guys that haven’t played all year. We knew they weren’t in the type of shape they needed to be to stop the run.” The Roughriders lost both games at McMahon during the regular season, but their most recent Oct. 26 was by just four points. “The games where we played them earlier this season, we felt like we gave them the games,” Durant said. “All along, we felt like we were the better team.” Calgary had set a franchise record for the fewest turnovers in a season with 27, which was also the secondlowest in league history. But receivers Mo Price, Jeff Fuller and Brad Sinopoli each fumbled after the catch and turned the ball over. With just over four minutes remaining in the game, returner Larry Taylor lost control of a Roughrider punt. Paul Woldu knocked it out of bounds to give the visitors the ball on Calgary’s 32-yard line and Saskatchewan converted the turnover to a field goal. Glenn was intercepted twice and also had an attempted touchdown throw to the end zone knocked down in the first half. Calgary also turned the ball over on downs once. “You go from the highest high to the lowest low,” Glenn said. “Right now, it’s pretty low.” Saskatchewan had a banner season

points in the fourth quarter, they allowed the Raptors to get back into the game and Rudy Gay to force overtime with a buzzer-beating layup. Portland finished the game connecting on a season-high 14 three-pointers. “It’s tough when they’re knocking down shots like that,” Gay said. “No matter how much we rotate, move it around and switch, it’s tough to play when a team has it going. I’m not happy they made shots, but I’m happy with the effort we put forth.” Portland’s ability to heat up from three wasn’t a surprise to the Raptors. Raptors coach Dwane Casey talked about Portland’s potent offence prior to Sunday’s game. “(They’re) one of the best offensive teams that we’ve seen,” Casey said. “I think as far as scoring the basketball, averaging 103 points a game, they are a very explosive offensive team so we’ve got to be on point. We’ve got to guard the three-point line.” Gay tied a season-high with 30 points to go with 10 rebounds for the Raptors while DeMar DeRozan scored 29 points. Jonas Valanciunas added a season-high 19 points in the loss. in takeways with 53 —their secondhighest in 17 seasons — and they made the most of Calgary’s errors.

EAST: Momentum The Stampeders dealt Burris to Hamilton and although Burris was the league’s leading passer in 2011, the Ticats struggled to a 6-12 record. Hamilton opened 2013 with a new coach (Austin), a plethora of youngsters and having to play its home games in Guelph, Ont., while a new stadium was being built. Burris again led the CFL in passing this year and guided the Ticats (10-8) to second in the East behind front-running Toronto (11-7). Burris was a key figure in Hamilton’s 19-16 overtime East semifinal win over Montreal last weekend, engineering a key 97-yard TD march into a brisk wind. Backup Dan LeFevour’s two-yard touchdown run in OT clinched the victory. Burris was just 10-of-19 passing for 144 yards and two TDs but Ray was the story of the opening half. He was 17-of20 passing for 279 yards and two TDs in staking the defending Grey Cup champions to their lead. Austin said the turning points were late in the first half and early in the second when the Ticats captured momentum with their two TD drives. “I can’t state the importance of them,” Austin said. “Once we evened it up it was like a 0-0 game, it was just who could outplay who the rest of the game.” Argos head coach Scott Milanovich agreed. “We weren’t able to keep the momentum going,” he said. “The turning point in the game felt like the end second quarter when we had a nice lead. “I felt like we had the game where we wanted it. Then as good teams do, they made a run and closed the gap and then scored again to start the second half.”

“They got aggressive and we got passive,” said Lillard. “They started to attack us on the offensive end. They got some and-ones and hit some threes

and we struggled on offence. We started to stall, get a little passive, a few turnovers, missed shots and they found their way back into the game.”

Johnson wins sixth NASCAR championship FINISHES NINTH IN SEASON FINALE, BEATS OUT KENSETH FOR TITLE BY 19 POINTS BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS HOMESTEAD, Fla. — Back on top with only two NASCAR greats left to catch, Jimmie Johnson won his sixth championship in eight years Sunday and staked his claim as one of the most dominant competitors in sports history. Johnson, needing only to finish 23rd or better to spoil Matt Kenseth’s career season, was on cruise control most of the day at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Johnson’s lone hiccup came when traffic stacked-up on a restart and he and Kenseth made slight contact, causing Johnson to plunge 15 spots in the field with damage to his fender. He rallied to finish ninth and beat Kenseth for the title by 19 points. Now looming large in Johnson’s windshield is the mark of seven titles held by Richard Petty and the late Dale Earnhardt. Johnson barely got to finish his celebratory burnouts before the debate began: Where does “SixPack” rank among the greats in NASCAR? “I have six, and we’ll see if I can get seven,” Johnson said. “Time will tell. I think we need to save the argument until I hang up the helmet, then it’s worth the argument. Let’s wait until I hang up the helmet until we really start thinking about this.” Kenseth, needing a Johnson collapse to have any shot at the title, positioned himself to pounce should anything go awry. Kenseth led a race-high 144 laps and finished second to Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Denny Hamlin. “It was just unbelievable year for us. Obviously, we wanted to win the championship as good as we ran all year,” said Kenseth, winner of seven races in his first season with JGR. Kenseth’s effort just wasn’t enough against a Hendrick Motorsports team that wouldn’t be denied for a third consecutive year. “If Jimmie would have got a flat or something, that would have been all right,” Kenseth lamented. “Never seen anything like this in the sport and probably never will again. ... Maybe he’ll retire.” Johnson won a record five straight

titles from 2006 through 2010, was mathematically eliminated before the 2011 finale, but was back in the title hunt last season. Only he had a tire failure in the penultimate race at Phoenix and then a mechanical failure in the finale to lose the championship to Brad Keselowski. His two-year drought is over, and his crew was ready for the party on the South Beach. “You better get a sip of that (water) bottle, it’s the only healthy liquid you’re going to get all night,” crew chief Chad Knaus radioed Johnson after he crossed the finish line. Johnson planned to savour every moment of the celebration and his championship reign. “This is extremely sweet. I feel like those five years were a blur. And things happen so fast,” Johnson said. “It’s not that I didn’t enjoy it or appreciate it or respect what happened. It just went by so fast it seems like. Now, I’m really going to slow things down here and enjoy it. This is so, so sweet.” It was just as special for Hamlin, who bounced back from a fractured vertebra earlier this season that sidelined him for over a month. Hamlin hasn’t been the same since, and Sunday’s victory, his first of the year, extended his winning streak to eight seasons. “Is the year over yet?” a grinning Hamlin asked in Victory Lane. “Man, I wanted to keep that streak alive.” Hamlin’s celebration was brief as the victory stage was cleared for Johnson. Hamlin nearly stood atop the podium in 2010, when he took Johnson down to the wire, only to fade in the finale as Johnson claimed his record fifth consecutive title. So Hamlin could commiserate with new teammate Kenseth, who won set career marks this year in wins, poles, laps led and average start. “Unfortunately, we’re racing during the Jimmie Johnson era,” Hamlin said. “We’re just unlucky in that sense. I think being out there and racing with him, I can say he’s the best that there ever was. He’s racing against competition that is tougher than this sport’s ever seen.” The numbers back up Hamlin’s claim. — Johnson is the youngest driver to

He’s also the fastest to six titles, as neither Petty nor Earnhardt did it in an eight-year span. — His 66 Sprint Cup wins since 2002 are 30 more than any other driver has won in the last 11 years. But his crew chief Knaus isn’t too shabby, either. Knaus ranks second on the all-time championship list behind Dale Inman, who won eight. But Knaus is the only crew chief to win more than two titles in a row. His 64 career wins are all with Johnson. Darian Grubb, who was part of three of Johnson’s titles and won his own championship in 2011 as Tony Stewart’s crew chief, said the No. 48 team

never settles. “Its consistency, always being there at the finish,” said Grubb, now Hamlin’s crew chief. “You have to be able to get that top-10 run, just have to be able to do that.” Indeed, Johnson won the title this year with a 5.1 average finish over the 10 Chase for the Sprint Cup championship races. The mark was second only to the 5.0 average he posted in 2007 when he beat teammate Jeff Gordon for his second title. It was four-time champion Gordon that discovered Johnson racing in the Nationwide Series in 2001 and convinced team owner Rick Hendrick to hire him for a new fourth team.

Vettel dominant again in U.S. Grand Prix win BREAKS F1 RECORD WITH EIGHTH CONSECUTIVE VICTORY BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS AUSTIN, Texas — Sebastian Vettel climbed out of his Red Bull car, pumped his right fist then held up eight fingers, one for each of his consecutive victories. Formula One’s baby-faced German dominator just keeps on rolling. The four-time world champion won the U.S. Grand Prix in easy fashion Sunday, setting an F1 season record with his eighth straight victory behind another blistering drive that gave the field no chance to catch him. “Incredible. It’s one of those (records) you never expect to be beaten,” Vettel said. Vettel started from the pole position he snagged from teammate Mark Webber of Australia in the finals seconds of Saturday’s qualifying. The No. 1 spot proved important. Vettel’s trademark quick start got him through the critical first turn ahead of the traffic and his lead was never threatened. Lotus’ Romain Grosjean of France was second, his best finish of the year. Webber was third.

Vettel charges into next weekend’s season finale in Brazil with a chance to tie Michael Schumacher’s Formula One record of 13 victories in a single season. Schumacher set the mark in 2004, and also won seven straight races that year. Vettel also is closing on the overall Formula One record for consecutive victories of nine, set by Alberto Ascari over parts of the 1952 and ’53 seasons. “At the end of the day, what makes me jump into the car is not a certain number, but certainly today, when you realize you’ve done it, it makes you very proud in that moment,” Vettel said. After the victory, Vettel spun his car through several doughnuts, a move that has drawn fines from the sports’ governing body earlier this season. Vettel later appeared to wipe away tears as he stood on the winner’s podium while listening to the German national anthem. He has been so dominant this season and in recent years that he’s been greeted with boos after several victories. Vettel has dismissed the jeers as frustration from fans of teams who can’t beat him. “We have to remember these days,” Vettel told his crew over his car radio after the victory. “I love you guys. We have an incredible team spirit. I’m so proud of you. I love you.”

The 26-year-old made his Formula One debut at 19 in the 2007 U.S. Grand Prix in Indianapolis and now has an American title that escaped him last year. Vettel led most of the 2012 race in Austin until Lewis Hamilton passed him late to get the win. Vettel had called that a frustrating loss and ruthlessly dominated the field this time. He avoided the danger of the treacherous first corner that pushes the drivers 133 feet up and into a blind left turn back down the hill. Once through that and still in the lead, Vettel immediately began pulling away. Webber, frustrated at losing pole position on Saturday, had a terrible start from No. 2. Grosjean and Mercedes’ Hamilton both nosed ahead and pushed him into fourth barely seconds into the race. “(Saturday) is when the victory was made easy for Seb,” Webber said. Webber fought back to overtake Hamilton, who finished fourth. He pushed Grosjean through several tense laps late but couldn’t slip into second as Grosjean held him off. “You want to be on the outside of turn one, but Romain was already there,” Webber said. “Romain drove a very good race.”

Kings complete Eastern road trip with shutout of Rangers KINGS 1 RANGERS 0 NEW YORK — Ben Scrivens made 37 saves in his second consecutive shutout, and Tyler Toffoli’s second-period goal held up as the winner as the Los Angeles Kings completed a successful Eastern road trip with a 1-0 victory over the New York Rangers on Sunday night. Dominic Moore thought he tied it with 2:41 remaining, but the goal was disallowed because he kicked it in with his right skate. Scrivens, filling in for injured regular Jonathan Quick, followed up a blanking of New Jersey on Friday with one against the Rangers. Los Angeles went 3-0-1 on the trip, winning the final three games. Scrivens has gone 155 minutes, 2 seconds without allowing a goal over three games. Los Angeles is 5-0-1 in its last six. Henrik Lundqvist stopped 29 shots in the hard-luck loss. The Rangers, 7-3 in their last 10, failed to follow up on a 1-0 win at Montreal on Saturday and dropped their second straight at home. BLACKHAWKS 5, SHARKS 1 CHICAGO (AP) — Patrick Sharp scored two goals, including one on a third-period penalty shot, and Kris Versteeg had a goal and an assist to lead Chicago over San Jose.

Jonathan Toews and rookie Brandon Pirri also scored for the Blackhawks, who rebounded with a tidy defensive effort following a 7-2 loss in Nashville on Saturday. Joe Pavelski connected for San Jose. Versteeg scored his first goal with the Blackhawks since being reacquired from Florida on Thursday. Corey Crawford stopped 23 shots and wasn’t heavily tested in the win. CAPITALS 4, BLUES 1 WASHINGTON (AP) — Alex Ovechkin won the head-tohead matchup between the NHL’s two leading goal scorers, getting a pair in the first period to move into a tie with Alexander Steen in Washington’s win over St. Louis. Ovechkin’s 16th and 17th goals led the Capitals to their third straight win and seventh in nine games. Mikhail Grabovski and John Carlson also scored for Washington, Nicklas Backstrom had three assists, and Braden Holtby made 46 saves. Ovechkin and Steen are two of the NHL’s hottest forwards playing for two of the league’s hottest teams, but the Capitals cruised after dominating early, scoring on three of their first six shots against Jaroslav Halak. Vladimir Sobotka scored in the second period for the Blues, who had won eight of 10. St. Louis was playing for the third time in four nights,

BLUE JACKETS 4, SENATORS 1 OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Ryan Johansen, R.J. Umberger and Fedor Tyutin each had a power-play goal to lead Columbus over Ottawa. Derek MacKenzie also scored for Columbus (7-10-3), and Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 30 shots. Erik Karlsson scored the lone goal for the Senators (88-4) in the third period. Craig Anderson made 18 saves. The ugly game got even uglier after Ottawa’s Mark Borowiecki caught Jared Boll with his head down in the third. James Wisniewski quickly came to his teammate’s defence and fought Borowiecki. The two were tossed from the game. WILD 2, JETS 1 ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Mikko Koivu scored two goals, including the winner with 3:12 remaining, and Minnesota extended its winning streak to four games by beating Winnipeg. Josh Harding made 21 saves for his 12th victory.

The Wild have an eightgame point streak (7-0-1) and pulled into second place, two points behind Chicago, in the Central Division. They also extended their home winning streak to six and are 10-1-2 at home. The Jets had a four-game winning streak snapped. Koivu doubled his goal total for the season. Zach Parise earned an assist and has 13 points in his past 12 games.

row. After Lehtonen kept Vancouver off the scoreboard in the second period in which Vancouver held a 20-6 edge in shots, Cole made it 2-0 early in the third.

STARS 2, CANUCKS 1 VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Kari Lehtonen made 42 saves to help Dallas edge Vancouver. Valeri Nichushkin and Erik Cole scored for Dallas (11-72), which came off a 7-3 victory over Calgary on Thursday and extended its road winning streak to six games. Henrik Sedin scored for Vancouver (11-8-3), which got 21 saves from Roberto Luongo but dropped its fourth in a

RDC teams sweep Keyano at home BY DANNY RODE ADVOCATE STAFF Kings 3 Huskies 0 It was obvious early on that the RDC Kings couldn’t just show up if they expected to defeat the Keyano College Huskies in their Alberta Colleges Men’s Volleyball League encounter at RDC Saturday afternoon. The Huskies, who lost to the Kings 3-0 Friday, came fired up and were playing a notch above their Friday performance, but so were the Kings as they recorded a 25-22, 25-20, 25-22 victory. “They (Huskies) came out with a lot of energy, even more than they had Friday, which was good” said Kings head coach Aaron Schulha. “There was some chatter between the two teams at the net, which makes for a bit more excitement. They certainly forced us to be better.” The crowd was also into it, adding to the energy. “It was a good atmosphere and the basketball boys were a good group to have on our side, they frustrated them a bit.” “It was definitely a high energy atmosphere and the teams showed it,” said Kings libero Parker Maris. “And of course the crowd, which is always great, added to it. “ The only real negative for the Kings were a string of missed serves in both the first and third sets. They missed six in the first set and five in the third. “I thought overall our first contacts were better, outside of the missed serves,” said Schulha. “Against a high energy team you can’t afford to be giving away those extra points. “But overall I thought we played better than Friday. Parker had something to prove after sitting out Friday and he was outstanding and our younger guys came in and did a fine job.” Right side Clark Spencer replaced starter Braden O’Toole in the second set and looked right at home, finishing with five kills and two aces. “Clark was 100 per cent hitting and Anthony (Finnigan) came in and didn’t miss a serve and Justin (Lukacs) put away the final point,” said Schulha. “We need those guys to stay involved. Our starters are a strong group, but everyone has to be ready and they were today.” Chris Jones continued his solid play at the net and on defence and was the player of the match with 11 kills and three digs while Tim Finnigan had 11 kills, two stuff blocks and two aces. Import Kornel Kowaleski of Poland had 11 kills and five

The Kings, who are ranked No. 1 in Canada, ran their record to 6-0, although they should receive two additional wins for the forfeited games by Lethbridge. The Huskies are 3-5. Queens 3 Huskies 0 The Queens still weren’t at the top of their game, but were a touch better than Friday when they needed five sets to down the Huskies. On Saturday they didn’t let down in the third set and pulled out a 26-24, 25-18, 25-20 victory. “We weren’t a whole lot better, but we won the critical points in the third set,” said Queens head coach Talbot Walton. “We played better after 15 . On Friday we stopped playing, but tonight we kept

playing.” The Huskies are 0-8 on the season, but played with enthusiasm and do have experience. ‘They have two good middle blockers and when they ran the middle we had to be super ready to defend against it,” continued Walton. “But they didn’t pass well enough to run it all the time.” The Queens also reinserted veteran left side Brooke Sutter and setter Bronwyn Hawkes after the two sat out Friday to give the younger players some needed playing time. “Brooke makes a difference in serve receive and defending,” said Walton. “We used a little smaller lineup, and we dug the ball better. As well we tried something different on defence. It was a bit more confusing, but it forced us to

MINOR HOCKEY Major Midget Female The Red Deer Sutter Fund Chiefs split a pair of games with the visiting Peace Country Storm, winning 2-0 Friday and losing 2-1 Saturday at the Collicutt Centre.

American Bowe breaks Nesbitt’s speedskating world record at World Cup event THE ASSOCIATED PRESS KEARNS, Utah — American Brittany Bowe set a world record in the women’s 1,000 metres Sunday in a World Cup speedskating race at the Utah Olympic Oval, finishing in 1:12.58. Bowe broke the mark of 1:12.68 set by Christine Nesbitt of London, Ont., in Calgary on Jan. 28, 2012. “I daydream about it,” Bowe said. “I’ve dreamed in my sleep about it. When it becomes a reality and finally hits you, it’s a dream come true.” American Heather Richardson was second in 1:12.61, and the Netherlands’ Ireen Wust followed in 1:13.33.

Bowe set her sights on winning the race after finishing second a day earlier. Setting a record didn’t really cross her mind until the final lap. “I knew if I could just hang on, it would be a really fast time,” Bowe said. In the women’s team pursuit, Nesbitt, Winnipeg’s Brittany Schussler and Regina’s Kali Christ won silver for Canada in 2:56.90. The Netherlands won gold in 2:56.02, while the United States was third in 2:57.09. “I guess we built a lot off last week (where we were fourth) and tried to come up with a bit of a new tactic,” Schussler said. “It wasn’t perfect but it was a definitely a step

in the right direction. We’re definitely excited to be back on the podium where we belong and looking forward to Berlin and taking another step up the podium.” Japan’s Keiichiro Nagashima won the men’s 500 in 34.24 seconds. The Netherlands’ Ronald Mulder was second in 34.25, and South Korea’s Mo Tae-mum was third in 34.28. American Mitchell Whitmore was seventh in 34.52. The Netherlands swept the top three spots in the men’s 5,000. Sven Kramer won in 6:04.59, Bob de Jong was second in 6:07.43, and Jorrit Bergsma third in 6:08.13. American Jonathan Kuck finished fifth in 6:09.73.

focus.” The Queens, who are 8-0 and ranked No. 5 in Canada, do have two more game remaining as RDC visits Lakeland Nov. 29-30. Walton looks for the team to pick up their level of play heading into the Christmas break. “These are the dog days of November, as everyone is over the honeymoon of playing volleyball and the playoffs are still down the road,” he said. “As well the first-year athletes aren’t used to the longer season and their excitement level has dropped a bit, But we need to continue to work at it and consistently get better every day and every week, so we can take that into the break and come out strong in the second half.”


BRIEFS Provincial football games rescheduled for tonight The Sylvan Lake Lakers will host the Ardrossan Bisons in an Alberta tier 3 high school football semifinal today at 5:30 p.m. at Lacombe’s MEGlobal Athletic Park, two days after the originally scheduled contest was postponed due to highway conditions. The Rimbey Spartans will take on the Breton Cougars in a provincial high school six-man semifinal at 3 p.m. today, also in Lacombe. Meanwhile, the Lacombe Raiders were slated to meet the Calgary Bulldogs in a provincial tier 2 bantam semifinal during the weekend, and instead the clubs will tangle this Saturday in Calgary. The Red Deer Hornets traveled to Lloydminster Saturday for the provincial peewee tier 4 final and were defeated 46-6 by the host Steelers.

Wranglers get weekend win over Generals Wally Samson fired three goals for the Blackfalds Wranglers in a 6-4 Heritage Junior B Hockey League win Friday over the host Cochrane Generals. Trent Hermary added two goals for the winners, who got a single from Bryce Boguski. Conner Zenchuk made 38 saves for the Wranglers as each team had 42 shots. Meanwhile, the visiting Three Hills Thrashers dropped a 5-4 decision to the High River Flyers despite getting two goals from Lucas Jones. Tristan Cunningham and Chris Williams also tallied for the Thrashers, who got a 33-save performance from Brady Hoover as Three Hills held a 38-26 edge in shots. In another Friday contest, Tye Munro, Cole Visser and Jarritt Alexander scored for the visiting Ponoka Stampeders in a 5-3 loss to the Airdrie Thunder, who were limited to 14 skaters. Nathaniel Nickel made saves for the Stamps, outshot 44-34. Saturday’s Heritage League games were postponed due to highway conditions.

Brittany Kozak had six kills for the Huskies. • The Olds College Broncos volleyball squads split with SAIT on Friday with the women winning 3-2 and the men losing 3-0. In basketball action, Olds lost all four games to Medicine Hat. The women lost 59-32 and 51-30 and the men 65-59 and 105-68. The RDC-SAIT basketball clash set for RDC Saturday was postponed because of poor road conditions.

Innisfail tops Stony Plain INNISFAIL — Jason Nopper’s shootout goal was the winner as the Innisfail Eagles slipped past the Stony Plain Eagles 2-1 in a Chinook Hockey League game Friday. Nopper was the third Innisfail shooter to beat Stony Plain netminder Wade Waters and the ninth overall shooter for the host team. Pete Vandermeer and Tyson Keller scored earlier in the shootout, while Stony Plain shooters Brendan Baumgartner and Cole Gibson beat Innisfail goaltender Bryce Luker. Stony Plain’s Scott Enders snapped a scoreless tie with a power-play marker at 12:08 of the third period. Chris Neurauter replied for Innisfail just two minutes later, which set up a scoreless overtime frame and the ensuing shootout. Luker made 33 saves during regulation time, while Waters stopped 39 shots for the visitors. The CHL Saturday games — including Bentley at Okotoks — were postponed due to road conditions.

Amazons take down Hounds The Central Alberta Amazons defeated the Medicine Hat Hounds twice in Alberta Junior Female Hockey League play at the Penhold Regional Multiplex. The Amazons won 9-1 Friday and 6-2 Saturday. Kelsey Mastel scored three times and added an assist on Friday with Noelle Gouchie, Presley Hollman, Charissa Kadar, Taylor Rankin, Allie Silbernagel and Alexa Stang adding one each. Rankin and Hollman added two assists each. Kelly Hausauer finished with 16 saves in goal. On Saturday, Gouchie, Hollman, Madison Moskowy, Silbernagel, Stang and Autumn Woelk scored once each with Gouchie picking up a pair of assists. Skylar Kartasiuk finished with 10 saves.

GSP feeling the hurt after UFC 167 win BY THE CANADIAN PRESS LAS VEGAS — Peeking over his shiny championship belt, Georges St-Pierre looked anything but a winner at the UFC 167 post-fight news conference. His swollen forehead was covered with red welts like a horrific case of acne. There were cuts under both black eyes. His battered face looked like he had been in a car crash. Perhaps more worrying was the hidden hurt inside. Moments after winning a controversial razor-thin split decision over No. 1 contender Johny (Bigg Rigg) Hendricks on Saturday night, the battered UFC welterweight champion hinted at retirement in cryptic post-fight comments in the cage — citing unexplained personal issues and the need to step away — before being transported to hospital. When he returned to the MGM Grand Garden Arena midway through the post-fight news conference, the Canadian poured gasoline on the fire. “I can’t sleep at night now. I’m going crazy.” he said. “I have issues. I need to relax. I need to get out for a while. I don’t know what I’m going to do.” He declined to detail the issues. UFC president Dana White, after meeting privately with the 32-year-old from Montreal, said St-Pierre’s personal problems “aren’t as bad as he thinks they are.” “Yeah, we’ll get through this,” he added. Still St-Pierre, the biggest draw in mixed martial arts, essentially suffered a meltdown inside and outside the cage. “I gave everything. I left my soul in the Octagon tonight,” he said of the gruelling battle with Hendricks. Prime Minister Stephen Harper was still pleased with St-Pierre’s win, tweeting his


Johny Hendricks, right, exchanges punches with Georges St. Pierre during a UFC 167 mixed martial arts championship welterweight bout on Saturday, in Las Vegas. St. Pierre won by split decision. congratulations. “I would like to congratulate (at)GeorgesStPierre on his victory in UFC167. Great fight!” said Harper from his verified Twitter account. For UFC president Dana White, it was a nightmare finale to a card billed as a celebration of the UFC’s 20-year anniversary. White was irate that two of the three judges had scored the fight 48-47 for the champion, giving him three of the five rounds and a split decision. And then he heard his pay-per-view king say out of the blue that he was walking away from the sport — for how long, nobody knew. While St-Pierre (25-2) was receiving treatment, White seethed at the decision in

post-fight news conference. “It’s about damage. This is a fight. It’s whoever inflicts the most damage,” he said, “He (St-Pierre) got hurt, he got wobbled, he got dropped. “Yeah, I’m blown away that Georges St-Pierre won that fight. And listen, I’m a promoter. He’s the biggest pay-perview star on the planet for me. And I still don’t think he won that fight. I want what’s fair and that wasn’t fair. “I think the Nevada State Athletic Commission is atrocious. I think the governor needs to step in immediately before these guys destroy this sport like they did boxing.” Judges Sal D’Amato and Tony Weeks scored rounds one, three and five for StPierre. Glenn Trowbridge

scored the first, second and fourth for Hendricks. White gave all but round three to Hendricks (15-2). St-Pierre, who arrived 30 minutes into the news conference after receiving medical treatment, said he thought he won three of the five rounds, with the final round being the decisive one. But he sounded anything but convincing. And White saw a different emotion from the GSP camp in the cage as they awaited the decision. “They were acting like they lost the fight. They all looked like they wanted to kill themselves.” As reporters tried to get the champion to elaborate on his post-fight comments about what was troubling him, St.

Pierre’s eyes glistened. At one point, former light-heavyweight champion Rashad Evans — who has trained with StPierre — leaned over and gave him a supportive squeeze. White eventually stepped in as the questioning continued. “Don’t answer that question,” he said to St-Pierre. “Don’t ask him that question any more,” he told a reporter. “He doesn’t want to answer that question.” When the news conference ended, White put his traditional scrum with reporters on hold to huddle with St-Pierre. He was much calmer upon his return, saying he believed StPierre would be ready to fight again when his time came — with a rematch against Hendricks top of the list. “One of the things that makes Georges as great as he is, is things drive him crazy. Little things drive him nuts,” he said of St-Pierre, who has admitted to being obsessive and a perfectionist as a fighter. “Like the whole obsession thing ... he’s very much that way and he’s obsessing over something else right now that might seem like the end of the world but it’s not.” Added White: “He wants to fight. This isn’t about fighting. It really isn’t about fighting or retiring. It was a personal problem that has him very very upset right now and I’m very confident he’s going to work it out.” White had not been as calm earlier at the post-fight news conference, raging at GSP’s request for time off prior to the champion’s arrival. “You don’t just say ‘Hey. I’m going to take a while off and maybe I’ll be back, maybe I won’t.’ You owe it to the fans, you owe it to that belt, you owe it to this company (the UFC) and you owe it to Johny Hendricks to give him that opportunity to fight again. Unless you’re going to retire.”

LPGA Harris English wins OHL Classic for second PGA title Thompson outlasts Lewis at Lorena Ochoa Invitational PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico — Harris English won the rain-delayed OHL Classic for his second PGA Tour title, pulling away for a four-stroke victory in a 29-hole Sunday finish at Mayakoba. English closed with a 6-under 65 after completing the third round in the morning with a 68. He moved into contention Saturday morning in the second round, matching the lowest round of his tour career with a 62. “I guess I found something in my swing — a little swing key that helping me out,” English said. “I hit the ball really well all week. It got a little windy the first two days and I struggled a bit with my driver, but I found it down the stretch.” The 24-year-old former University of Georgia star finished at a tournamentrecord 21-under 263. “My first time at Mayakoba,” English said. “It’s such a great tournament. Had a great time this week. Stayed down in Playa. Had some great beach time. Had some good golf course time.”

He won the FedEx St. Jude Classic in June in Tennessee for his first PGA Tour victory. “I was a lot more comfortable out there than I was a Memphis,” English said. English and Rory McIlroy are the only current players under 25 with multiple PGA Tour victories. Brian Stuard shot a 67 to finish second. Third-round leader Robert Karlsson had a 72 to drop into a tie for sixth at 15 under. “I’ve been struggling with the long shots, in general,” the 44-year-old Swede said. “Usually, you get found out sooner or later. ... I’m still very, very pleased.” Jason Bohn (68), Chris Stroud (68) and Rory Sabbatini (70) tied for third at 16 under. Justin Hicks (67), Justin Leonard (67) and Charles Howell III (69) joined Karlsson at 15 under. More than 4 ½ inches of rain hit the course from Wednesday to Friday. Because of the wet conditions, players were allowed to use preferred lies.

Czech Republic beats Serbia to retain Davis Cup title THE ASSOCIATED PRESS With the Davis Cup on the line, Radek Stepanek delivered again. Stepanek gave the Czech Republic its second straight Davis Cup title Sunday, sweeping past Dusan Lajovic in straight sets in the fifth and decisive match to secure a 3-2 win over Serbia in the final. That made Stepanek the first player in the history of the tournament to decide two consecutive

finals in the fifth match, having done the same against Spain’s Nicolas Almagro last year. “This is an amazing moment,” said Stepanek, who beat the 117thranked Lajovic 6-3, 6-1, 6-1 after Novak Djokovic had levelled the series for Serbia at 2-2 earlier Sunday. The Czech veteran converted his first match point with a smash to send about a thousand visiting Czech fans at Belgrade Arena into wild celebrations as they

blew trumpets and beat their drums. Stepanek spread his hands on the court as Tomas Berdych and other Czech teammates jumped on him. “It’s difficult to find right words for emotions I am going through now,” Stepanek said. “It was a completely different experience than last year. I was very focused, concentrated, I knew what to do on court. We made history for our country today.”

Koe edges Gushue to win Grand Slam of Curling Canadian Open BY THE CANADIAN PRESS MEDICINE HAT — Calgary’s Kevin Koe edged Brad Gushue of St. John’s 5-4 at the Grand Slam of Curling Canadian Open final on Sunday. With the match tied at four heading into the eighth end, Koe scored a single in the final end to seal his victory. “It feels great,” said Koe, who has now won two Grand Slam events after taking the 2012 Masters. “Obviously, when you make a big shot at the end to win, it feels even better and makes it more exciting.” The Calgary rink came out strong, putting up two points in the first end,

but Gushue responded with two of his own to tie the game in the third. Gushue took the lead with a single point in the fourth, and Koe responded with two in the sixth for a 4-3 edge before Gushue added one point in the seventh to tie it up. Koe finishes the second event of the 2013-14 Grand Slam of Curling season with a 7-1 record, and takes home $24,000 of the combined $100,000 purse awarded to the 18 men’s teams competing in the tournament. Glenn Howard’s rink from Coldwater, Ont., won the first Grand Slam event of the season — the Masters in Abbotsford, B.C., two weeks ago.

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS GUADALAJARA, Mexico — Lexi Thompson won the Lorena Ochoa Invitational on Sunday for her second victory in her last four starts, birdieing the final hole to beat Stacy Lewis by a stroke. The 18-year-old Thompson made a 5-foot putt on the par-5 18th, then won when Lewis missed her 5-foot try. “To have Lorena Ochoa give me the trophy on the 18th green, it’s so memorable and honourable,” Thompson said. “She’s been such a huge role model to me. Just to play in her event, it’s an honour and to be here and to see her. It is a great honour to win this event and have her give me the trophy. It means a lot to me.” Ochoa won 27 LPGA Tour titles before retiring in 2010. Thompson closed with a 3-under 69 to finish at 16-under 272 at Guadalajara Country Club. She won the 2011 LPGA Navistar Classic at 16, and took the LPGA Malaysia last month for her second tour title. Thompson two-putted for the victory. “First off, I had like a 50- to 60-footer for the first one, which was interesting getting up there within a few feet,” Thompson said. “You know on the second putt, that’s what it all came down to thinking I can make it and went up to it confidently.

Just knock it in.” The third-ranked Lewis, a threetime winner this year, had a 68. “I knew I had to make it,” Lewis said about her birdie try on the final hole. “I had a good line on it, just with these greens, those downhill putts are the hardest ones to make. I hit a good putt. I hit it where I wanted to. It just didn’t go in.” So Yeon Ryu was third at 13 under after a 69. Top-ranked Inbee Park finished fourth at 11 under to wrap up the points-based player of the year award with one event left. She is the first South Korean player to win the award. “I said all year, there should have been at least two or three girls that already won the award, but nobody really did it,” said Park, who shot 69. “It’s just really hard to believe and I’m just very lucky I won.” Lewis birdied Nos. 12-14 to take a one-stroke lead, but dropped into a tie with Thompson with a bogey on the par-3 17th. “Stacy is an amazing player,” Thompson said. “I knew she could make a run at me any time during that round. When she made the two-shot swing on me, I think on No. 12, it brought it back to all squared. “I knew I had to make birdies on top of her because she gets on a roll and she doesn’t stop. She’s an amazing player and played great today.”

Broncos buck undefeated Chiefs BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Broncos 27 Chiefs 17 DENVER — Peyton Manning walked away a winner in the biggest game of the year so far and, as a bonus, the Broncos might not even have to send his uniform off to the cleaners. Manning threw for 323 yards and a touchdown Sunday night and was barely touched by Kansas City’s sack-happy defence in Denver’s 27-17 victory over the NFL’s last undefeated team. It means the ’72 Dolphins can rest easy for another year. And it puts Denver and the Chiefs in a tie atop the AFC West at 9-1, with a rematch set in two weeks. Manning has another big game before that — at New England in yet another showdown against Tom Brady. If the Broncos’ offensive line does anywhere near as good a job in that one as it did against the Chiefs, the quarterback’s ailing ankles — mummified with athletic tape for this critical game — should be feeling much better. With Lindsey Vonn and boyfriend Tiger Woods on the sideline to watch the NFL’s must-see game of the year, the Denver offensive line, featuring tackles Chris Clark and Orlando Franklin, shut out Kansas City’s sack duo of Justin Houston and Tamba Hali along with the rest of the KC

defence, which came in with a league-leading 36 sacks. It was even better than that, though. Manning was barely touched all night. In fact, his most notable contact came in the first quarter when he and Montee Ball flubbed a handoff that Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson scooped up. Johnson was barrelling toward the end zone and what could’ve been a 7-3 lead. Manning lowered his shoulder and tripped him up. The Chiefs’ offence came out and fullback Anthony Sherman promptly fumbled the ball back to the Broncos. Three plays later, Manning made the game’s biggest play, spotting receiver Demaryius Thomas in single coverage on the sideline for a 70-yard gain that set up the quarterback’s lone touchdown pass — a 9-yard strike to Julius Thomas for a 10-0 lead. The Chiefs’ defence, which came into the game also leading the league in points allowed (12.8), remained stout throughout against the league’s highest-scoring offence (41.2). But eventually, Manning and Co., overwhelmed them, going 79, 65 and 52 yards for their last three scores and a 27-10 lead. Ball capped two of the drives, once from 1 yard and another time from 8, to atone for the fumble, which was actually charged to Manning. The Chiefs, who hadn’t lost since a 38-3 setback in Denver last December to close out a 2-14 season, hadn’t allowed


Denver Broncos running back Montee Ball (28) leaps across the goal line for a touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs in the second quarter of an NFL game, Sunday, in Denver. more than 17 points all year — a simple and effective explanation for one of the biggest turnarounds in NFL history. But the offence, led by Alex Smith, simply isn’t built to win a high-scoring showdown. Smith finished with 230 yards and two touchdowns. He completed four passes for 57 yards to Dwayne Bowe, who

started, as promised, while his legal case for marijuana possession plays out. Jamaal Charles, who came in leading the AFC in rushing with 725 yards, added 78 to that. But there was no big-play ability and the cool weather — game-time temperature 43 degrees — that brought Manning’s blue-and-grey glove out

for the first time this season didn’t slow the quarterback or his offence at all. Knowshon Moreno ran for 79 yards and kept the chains moving for Denver, while Wes Welker took his turn as Manning’s favourite target, catching eight passes for 72 yards before leaving to be evaluated for a possible concussion.

Bears beat Ravens with field goal in overtime BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BEARS 23 RAVENS 20 CHICAGO — Robbie Gould kicked a 38-yard field goal to lift the Chicago Bears to a 23-20 victory over Baltimore Sunday in a game delayed about two hours by a torrential downpour. Justin Tucker tied it for the Ravens with a 21-yard field goal at the end of regulation. The big delay came after Tucker kicked a 52-yard field goal with 4:51 remaining in the first quarter. Fans were ordered to take cover. Players headed to the locker rooms as heavy rains and winds whipped through Soldier Field. They emerged about two hours later with the sky clearing and the sun coming out, but the rain and wind returned in the third quarter, turning the stands into a sea of ponchos. Gould won it with a 38-yarder on third-and-8 with 8:41 left in OT. SAINTS 23, 49ERS 20 NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Marques Colston capped a record-setting day with a 20-yard reception to get the Saints into field goal range, and Garrett Hartley kicked a 31-yarder as time expired, lifting New Orleans over San Francisco. Hartley, who had missed four field goals in the Saints’ previous three games, made all three of his field goal attempts in the fourth quarter — he earlier hit from 21 and 42 yards. The Saints (8-2) overcame three turnovers, a failed fourth down conversion and a 20-14 deficit. Colston finished with five catches for 80 yards to become the Saints’ alltime leader in yards receiving with 7,923, passing Eric Martin’s two-decade-old mark of 7,854. Colin Kaepernick completed 17 of 31 passes for only 127 yards and was sacked three times as the Niners (6-4) lost their second straight. EAGLES 24, REDSKINS 16 PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Nick Foles threw for 298 yards and ran for a touchdown, LeSean McCoy had two TDs rushing and Philadelphia snapped a 10-game home losing streak. A year after finishing 4-12 under Andy Reid, Chip Kelly’s Eagles (6-5) are first in the NFC East. They’re a half-game ahead of idle Dallas (5-5). The defending division champion Redskins fell to 3-7. The Eagles hadn’t won at the Linc in 413 days since defeating the New York Giants on Sept. 30, 2012. Down 24-0 in the fourth quarter, the Redskins rallied behind Robert Griffin III’s TD passes of 62 yards to Darrel Young and 41 yards to Aldrick Robinson and both 2-point conversions. RG3 then drove the Redskins to the Eagles 18 before his pass off his back foot was intercepted by Brandon Boykin. BENGALS 40, BROWNS 21 CINCINNATI (AP) — Andy Dalton threw two touchdown passes and Cincinnati returned a blocked punt and a fumble for touchdowns during a 31-point second quarter that set a Bengals record and swept the AFC North leaders over Cleveland. The Bengals (7-4) head into their bye week with their division lead intact. They’d lost their last two games in overtime, tying the NFL record and allowing the Browns (4-6) to draw close. The biggest quarter in club history left this one in hand by halftime. It ended as the most lopsided game in the intrastate series since Cincinnati’s 30-0 win in Cleveland in 2006. Dalton had a horrid start that helped Cleveland get a promising early lead. He threw two passes that were picked off by Joe Haden, who ran one of them back 29 yards for a touchdown

and a 13-0 lead in the first quarter. When the quarter ended, Cleveland fell apart. STEELERS 37, LIONS 27 PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger passed for 367 yards and four touchdowns, including two in the final 5 minutes as Pittsburgh rallied to beat Detroit. Antonio Brown caught seven passes for 147 yards and two scores and Pittsburgh’s defence rebounded from a horrific second quarter to shut out Detroit in the second half. The Steelers (4-6) have won two straight and kept the Lions (6-4) winless in Pittsburgh for 58 years and counting. Matthew Stafford threw for 362 yards with two touchdowns and an interception to become the Lions’ alltime leading passer. Calvin Johnson hauled in six passes for 179 yards and both scores, but Detroit’s two stars disappeared over the final 30 minutes. Stafford completed just 3 of 16 passes in the second half, with none of the completions going to Johnson. BILLS 37, JETS 14 ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Jairus Byrd had two interceptions in leading a Buffalo defence that forced four turnovers in a victory over the Jets. Kyle Williams had two sacks and forced a fumble, and Da’Norris Searcy returned Geno Smith’s third interception 32 yards for a touchdown. Buffalo (4-7) snapped a three-game skid and won for only the second time in seven games. Buffalo’s EJ Manuel won Round 2 of the AFC East showdown of rookie quarterbacks by finishing 20 of 28 for 245 yards passing and two scores. Smith, a second-round pick out of West Virginia, struggled in blustery conditions, finishing 8 of 23 for 103 yards four turnovers — including a lost fumble — before being yanked in favour of Matt Simms after three quarters. The Jets (5-5) became the NFL’s first team to alternate wins and losses through the first 10 games of the season. RAIDERS 28, TEXANS 23 HOUSTON (AP) — Rookie Matt McGloin threw three touchdown passes in his first NFL start and Oakland extended Houston’s franchise-record skid to eight games in Texans coach Gary Kubiak’s return from a mini-stroke. McGloin, an undrafted free agent, was 18 of 32 for 197 yards in place of an injured Terrelle Pryor. Kubiak wasn’t on the sidelines, instead coaching upstairs from the booth on doctor’s orders two weeks after collapsing at halftime of Houston’s game against Indianapolis. Houston (2-8) had a chance to take the lead late. But Matt Schaub’s pass to Andre Johnson on fourth down from the 8 was broken up in the end zone to give Oakland (4-6) the win. CARDINALS 27, JAGUARS 14 JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Carson Palmer threw for 419 yards and two scores and did not throw an interception for the first time all year, leading Arizona over Jacksonville. Michael Floyd had a career-high 193 yards receiving, including a 91-yard touchdown on a catch-and-run. Will Blackmon was beaten on the play, and then slipped off the receiver and rolled into cornerback Alan Ball to set Floyd free the rest of the way. The Cardinals (6-4) won their third straight game. The Jaguars (1-9) at least scored a touchdown at home for the first time this year. On fourth-and-2 from the 38 on the opening drive, Chad Henne found tight end Danny Noble behind the defence for a 62-yard score. It was Noble’s first NFL reception. BUCCANEERS 41, FALCONS 28 TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Bobby Rainey rushed for 163 yards and scored three touchdowns to lead Tampa Bay over struggling Atlanta. A waiver wire pickup who’s filling

in for the injured Doug Martin and Mike James, Rainey scored on firsthalf runs of 43 and 3 yards. He caught a 4-yard TD pass from Mike Glennon in the third quarter to help the Bucs (2-8) win for the second straight time following an 0-8 start. The Falcons (2-8) have lost four straight by a combined score of 135-61. The 5-foot-8, 212-pound Rainey also ran for 45 yards and scored the goahead touchdown in a 22-19 victory over Miami the previous week. He’s been with the Bucs for four games after beginning the season as a kick returner and backup running back with the Cleveland Browns. GIANTS 27, PACKERS 13 EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul scored on a spectacular, leaping

24-yard fourth-quarter interception return and the resurgent Giants won their fourth game in a row by beating slumping and injured-riddled Green Bay. Eli Manning threw a 26-yard touchdown pass to Rueben Randle and Brandon Jacobs added a 1-yard run as the Giants (4-6) handed the Packers (5-5) their third straight loss, their longest skid since a five-game losing streak near the end of 2008. Two of the three losses have come with quarterback Aaron Rodgers sidelined with a broken collarbone. While Scott Tolzien played well at times in his first NFL start, the Giants intercepted him three times, setting up 10 points. Pierre-Paul’s pick early in the fourth quarter gave New York a 14-point lead.

announcements Obituaries NORTHEY Doris Katherine (née Bennett) June 19, 1928 - Nov. 13, 2013 In her 85th year, in the small hours of a lovely winter morning, Mom released her tenacious hold on life, along with her wonderful spirit. Her daughter, Gail, held h e r h a n d . To t h e e n d , M o m reminded us all that she was a proudly independent woman and taught us all how to move through life’s joys and disappointments with a lovely smile and a positive, questioning outlook. Doris was raised on her parents’ farm, John and Elsie Bennett, in the Knee Hill Valley area east of Innisfail. She attended rural schools and often rode to the Calder school on horseback. She attended high school in Red Deer (Class of ‘47) and was a member of the L.T.C.H.S. Hall of Fame. Doris received her teaching certificate from the Calgary branch of the University of Alberta, and her first teaching experiences were at Cottonwood #2 west, then at Clarendon, east of Innisfail for two years. On July 19, 1950, she married Chester Vernon Northey and moved to his family’s farm in the Balmoral district east of Red Deer. Doris lived in the family home, built by her husband and father-in-law until August of this year. Mom and Dad raised a large family, and Doris was always busy cooking, sewing, gardening, canning and tending to the mixed farming operation. She was an active and responsible member of many organizations, but her true passion was being a member of the Alberta and Federated Women’s Institutes. Doris accepted and enjoyed all levels of responsibility with the AWI, eventually becoming President and travelling to local, provincial, national and international conferences in Europe, South Africa and Tasmania. Alongside many wonderful WI colleagues, Doris shared this special fellowship until the last meeting of the Balmoral WI, which was held in her house, after more than 85 years of history in the community. Doris loved belonging to the community; she loved all the social activities and readily participated, lead, volunteered, mentored and organized so many events for local organizations, such as Cubs, Scouts, 4-H, museums, safety city and various volunteer boards. Doris was also an active “station wagon” mom, often seen shuttling her children and their friends to countless ball games, hockey, skiing and social events. Her true love was to spend time down by the river on property the Northey’s had owned for 111 years. In 1972, she retired from teaching, her last post was River Glen School. She began a new career, working at the Red Deer and District Museum. She was on staff for almost 23 years and loved programming events for the children, youth and adults of this community. In fact, many school children first learned about Christmas celebrations the old-fashioned way by attending her events. As she once wrote, “The rewards that one receives come from the people that you work with, and those who share your challenges.” Doris was predeceased by her husband Vernon, son Douglas, her parents John and Elsie Bennett, sister Norma, and brother Bill Bennett. Surviving Doris are her six children Brian (Val), Bob (Jeanette), Garry (Cindy), Debbie (Donna), Gail (John) Gillis and Greg. Doris was so proud of her grandchildren Kristina (Kyle) Horne, Trever Gillis, Michelle Northey, Carter Northey and Garrett Northey. Doris is also survived by her loving and supportive brothers, Wilfred (Marg) Bennett, little brother Freddy (Florrie) Bennett and a special and kind sister-in-law Donna Bennett. The Funeral Service for Doris Katherine Northey will be held at Gaetz United Church, 4758 Ross Street, Red Deer, on Wednesday, November 20, 2013 at 11:00 a.m., where Doris has been an active member for 63 years. Following the funeral tea, interment will take place in the family plot at the Red Deer Cemetery. Donations may be made to the Sunnybrook farm in hopes of restoring further projects. On behalf of Doris, thanks to everyone who participated in her care over the last years. Particular thanks go to those who took the time to know her in the context of her entire long and rich life, and not simply the small chapter that constituted her demise. The family’s gratitude, like hers, is heartfelt. Condolences may be forwarded to the family by visiting Arrangements entrusted to EVENTIDE FUNERAL CHAPEL 4820 - 45 Street, Red Deer.

Libyans start strike over attacks by militiamen BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS TRIPOLI, Libya — Residents of the Libyan capital launched a general strike Sunday and held protests, demanding the city’s myriad of powerful militias be disbanded after violence in which nearly 50 people were killed over the weekend. Tripoli residents are seething with anger over the violence that erupted Friday, particularly directed at powerful militias from the western city of Misrata operating in the capital. The violence broke out when thousands of protesters marched on a neighbourhood controlled by a number of powerful Misrata militias, prompting some militiamen to open fire, killing 43 people. A day later, another militia attempted to overrun a military base, resulting in a clash with government forces that left four dead. In an apparent angry response at the popular pressure, Misrata’s city council announced late Sunday that it is withdrawing its representatives from the interim national parliament and from the Cabinet. Misrata has at least two ministers in the government: the economy and culture ministers. The Misrata city council also called on all armed groups, even those who are working under the government, to withdraw from the capital for a 72-hour period. In its statement, the Misrata city council held the government responsible for the security situation in Tripoli and for the safety of citizens originally from Misrata. There was no immediate government reaction to the decision. Earlier Sunday, a security official said the deputy

intelligence chief was abducted as he left Tripoli’s airport. It was not clear who abducted Mustafa Nouh, whose family is originally from Misrata. Public anger had been directed at the militias from Misrata, who had developed a strong presence in the capital following the fall of longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi in 2011. Except for several protests, streets were deserted as the vast majority of Tripoli’s businesses and schools were closed, with bakeries, pharmacies, hospitals and gas stations the main exception. The head of Tripoli’s city council, Al-Sadat al-Badri, said the strike is to last three days. Fearing renewed violence, armed residents have set up checkpoints to protect their neighbourhoods. On Sunday, nearly a hundred protesters entered the parliament building while lawmakers were in session, demanding legislation to disband the militias and forcing the session to break up. Lawmaker Fatma al-Misbari said the interim parliament was under strong pressure, but it did not specify from whom. “There is no consensus. There is pressure on the council and the government,” she said at the parliament building. Libya’s militias originated in the “revolutionary” brigades that fought against Gadhafi’s forces in 2011. Since his ouster and death, they have refused to disarm and have grown in size and power. Many have been enlisted by the state to serve as security forces, since the army and police remain weak, underequipped and underpaid. But many continue to act as armed vigilante factions with their own interests, sometimes turning political feuds into armed

conflicts. Too weak to disarm the militias, the military, police and government have tried to co-opt them, paying them to take on security roles such as guarding districts, facilities, and even polling stations during elections. But the policy has backfired, empowering the militias without controlling them. At the parliament, protesters carried a coffin draped in Libya’s post-Gadhafi flag and held posters declaring those killed in the recent violence to be “martyrs of dignity.” Speaking to Libya’s Al-Ahrar TV, Ali Azouz said the protesters had entered the building to demand that legislators order the disbanding of militias and their removal from Tripoli. “We were revolutionaries since (the start of the 2011 uprising) but when we were asked to hand back our weapons we did so and went back to work,” Azouz said, denouncing the existence of the armed groups. Libya’s state news agency LANA said Sunday that the Misrata militias accused of being responsible for Friday’s killings in the southern Tripoli neighbourhood of Gharghour had abandoned their bases there. The militias had turned villas and residential compounds of former Gadhafi-era officials into camps where they stashed weapons. It is not clear where the Misrata militias went. A government-affiliated militia, the Libya ShieldCentral Command, announced late Saturday that it had taken control of Gharghour, declaring it a military zone and vowing to turn it over to the government. The majority of Libya Shield’s militiamen also hail from Misrata.

One of Musharraf’s lawyers, Ilyas Siddiqui, said the former president’s legal team would decide its strategy once the court formally begins proceedings. The prime minister said in June that the government intended to try Musharraf for treason, but would consult with other political parties on the move. Senior lawmakers from the two main opposition parties expressed their support for the government’s plan to try Musharraf at the time. Musharraf governed the country for nearly a decade after the 1999 coup but was forced to step down in 2008 after growing discontent with his rule. He left the country soon after. He returned to Pakistan in March after years in self-imposed exile.

they would challenge his re-election as president. “The constitution was ruined and violated,” Khan said. “The judiciary was humiliated. Judges were manhandled physically, confined along with family and children.” The interior minister insisted that the government’s decision to put the former president on trial for treason was not a personal vendetta by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who was toppled in a military coup by Musharraf in 1999. The government didn’t indicate it would press charges against Musharraf for his coup, perhaps because the move was retroactively approved by the Supreme Court and parliament at the time.


ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Pakistan’s government plans to put former President Pervez Musharraf on trial for treason for declaring a state of emergency and suspending the constitution while in power, the interior minister said Sunday. Musharraf, a former army chief, would be the first military ruler tried for treason in a country that has experienced three military coups in its 66-year history. He could face the death penalty or life in prison if he is convicted of treason, but some question whether the country’s powerful army actually will let that happen. Musharraf has maintained his innocence.

The government plans to send a letter to the Supreme Court on Monday asking that treason proceedings begin under Article 6 of the constitution, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said during a news conference. The government made its decision after an investigating committee formed under the direction of the Supreme Court collected enough evidence for a trial, Khan said. “Gen. Musharraf is accountable to the nation and the constitution,” Khan said. He specifically mentioned Musharraf’s decision to suspend senior judges, including the chief justice of the Supreme Court, and detain them after he declared a state of emergency on Nov. 3, 2007. He was apparently concerned

Students at the Alix MAC School raised almost $3,500 through a series of fundraisers last school year. The money will support the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Unit at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre. The funds were raised during the 2012-13 school year through things like a cake auction, a wreath auction and white elephant sale, an Amazing Race event and weekly popcorn and ice cream sales. As well, more than $600 of the total was raised through a student-sponsored penny drive. The unit at the hospital helps youth and families cope with mental health challenges while promoting healthy mental and physical well-being.
