David Reynolds of Innisfail is determined to find the crash site of a plane that went down over Christmas in 1978. BY MURRAY CRAWFORD ADVOCATE STAFF It was supposed to be a Christmas in the Rockies for a Saskatchewan family. Chet and Betty Talbott and their son Sheldon left Indian Head in a Cessna 185 with experienced pilot Art Underwood at the helm on Dec. 23, 1978. They were headed out to 108 Mile House Ranch in British Columbia, just north of 100 Mile House. Their daughter Debbie was waiting for them there. Bad weather forced them to land at the Red Deer airport the evening of Dec. 23, and they spent the night in the city. They then took off the next day headed for Kamloops, B.C., to be followed by a drive to the ranch and a family Christmas. But they never made it. The plane and its occupants vanished. For more than two weeks a search and rescue operation scoured parts of the West Country in hopes of finding the remains of a crash site. The search and rescue team based out of Edmonton, then CFB Namao, logged about 1,100 hours flight time during the search, but the operation came up empty. Today, 35 years later, a Rimbey area resident at the time of the crash who now lives in Innisfail, believes he may know where the crash is and he wants to try to find it. Just 12 years old at the time, David Reynolds said Betty and Sheldon Talbott survived the crash and he communicated with Betty for two days after through walkie-talkies. Christmas has always been a difficult time for Reynolds, but for decades he never really knew why. But a couple of years ago, the memory of the crash, talking with Betty and the failure of finding the crash came back to haunt the now 47-year-old. With the help of his partner, Kayla Hart, he said he has slowly remembered details of the incident. Using walkie-talkies, Reynolds said he and his cousin heard a voice they didn’t expect on Christmas Eve. The voice identified herself as Betty Talbott. “We called the police and they came. My mother talked to them and somebody sent her to listen for
the black box beeping,” said Reynolds. “We did hear noise in the background.” The walkie-talkies they used came courtesy of Reynolds’ uncle as a Christmas present. They were discarded airline communication devices that were not being used. Reynolds’ cousin, Tracey Kerklaan of Red Deer, remembered that they were out playing with the walkie-talkies that day. “All of a sudden a distress thing came across our walkie-talkies,” said Kerklaan. “It was a woman freaking out saying that their plane had crashed, people were hurt and presumed dead and she needed help.

“At first we thought this was weird, we were 12, and we kept communicating for a little bit and then we went and got (Reynolds’) mom, my Aunt Margaret, and told her.” Kerklaan said her aunt called the RCMP. She remembers the day as a clear, nice day for the middle of an Alberta winter. Reynolds said Betty told him that Sheldon was alive the first day they communicated, but he didn’t make it through that night.

RCMP hunting for two suspects after shot fired at campground
BY MURRAY CRAWFORD ADVOCATE STAFF After a shot was fired at an isolated campground Thursday night during an incident west of Innisfail, RCMP responded with major reinforcements. Police are now searching for two men described as armed and dangerous. Shortly after 7:30 p.m., Innisfail RCMP were called to a report of the attempted robbery at Kelly’s Campground, about 20 kms west of Innisfail. Police said the two suspects drove into the campground in a yellow extended cab Dodge pickup truck with black stripes on the box. Kelly’s Campground is operated by the Innisfail Fish and Game Association. Treasurer Marlene Davis said it is a quiet, family campground and at the time there were children playing. “They came in full tilt down the hill,” said Davis. “They busted through the gate. “They did pull out a gun and shoot, which is very scary.” Witness reports said the vehicle stopped in front of one of the RV lots

found online. Nicolino Ivano Camardi, 19, of Calgary faces charges of wilfully causing unnecessary pain, suffering or injury to an animal. Camardi’s hands were shackled as he was brought into the prisoner’s docket. He was arrested last month and ordered to undergo a psychiatric assessment. Court was told an additional 30 days are required to complete the mental review to determine whether he is fit to stand trial. The Calgary Humane Society began investigating in January when a starved dog was found dead with tape
around its muzzle. A dead cat was found in the same area a week later with green painter’s tape covering most of its face.
EDMONTON — Alberta Tory leadership candidate Jim Prentice is being questioned on his commitment to public health care, given he sat on a corporate board that oversaw a pricey
private clinic. The Friends of Medicare and the NDP say Prentice needs to make clear what changes, if any, he would make on private delivery in the public system if he were to become the next premier. Prentice is one of three men vying to win a leadership vote in September. His campaign team says he has cut all his corporate ties as part of his bid for the top job. He was on the board of directors of Coril Holdings, which owns a Calgary boutique clinic that offers patients full service fitness and health care for almost $4,500 a year.
During the search, Canadian Forces Major Vic Keating said it would have been over in hours if the plane’s emergency locator transmitter had been operating. “That night the search was still on the news, and that was it,” said Reynolds. Reynolds said the walkie-talkies were taken from the family as part of the police investigation. The search for the wreckage continued until Jan. 9, 1979. Even psychics offered their help, but after 17 days the search was called off without finding the crash site. This past winter, as a form of therapy, Reynolds began using maps and researching where the signal he picked up 35 years ago may have come from. “There are a couple of chunks of bush that just scream,” said Reynolds, in reference to places that he believes
could hide the place wreckage. “It’s been 35 years, so that would have had to have been thick enough bush that they would have crashed into and be hidden well enough. Now, 35 years later, they haven’t been found so that tells me it’s either unhuntable, private property or old bush land that nobody rides into.” The focus of his search is two sections of bush, one just off of Hwy 53 near Hwy 761 northwest of Rimbey, and another patch of bush further south close to Caroline. But that patch near Caroline was part of the search in 1978-79. “In reality it doesn’t look that daunting,” said Reynolds. “We’d be looking for old damage, tree break-offs and we’re only talking about a few square miles of bush.” Earlier in May he took a drive to his old homestead, saying access by roads
to the area has improved significantly. Two subsequent trips to scout the area he said are promising and he hopes to go for a more thorough look soon. Information obtained through an Access to Information Request through Library and Archives Canada found a hunting party near the Barriere RCMP detachment in B.C., north of Kamloops, had heard a disturbance that sounded like “tin-rattling” on Nov. 9 or 10, 1979. A 20-acre region was investigated and the search came up negative with no cause for the sound determined. Another Access to Information Request submitted to the RCMP said the records had likely been destroyed based on a schedule established by the Librarian and Archivist of Canada, who now holds the file. A follow up information request has been submitted to Library and Archives Canada. firstname.lastname@example.org

and the driver exited the truck and spoke to the lone occupant of the site. “The driver wanted the occupant of the RV site to give him his vehicle. They wanted him to give up his vehicle and the occupant refused.” According to police, the situation escalated and one suspect fired a shot from a handgun into the ground and then fled the scene in the yellow truck. A second suspect was inside the truck. Members from eight RCMP detachments along with RCMP Air Services Helicopter, Red Deer Forensic Identification Section and Police Dog Services responded to the scene and surrounding area. Police describe the suspects as Caucasian men in their early to mid 20s and wearing dark clothing. One male was reported to have red hair and the other had light brown hair. A short time after the initial incident, the yellow truck was located in Bowden. It had been stolen from a rural location near Pine Lake. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Innisfail RCMP detachment at 403-2273342 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477. email@example.com

World leaders mark D-Day BY THE CANADIAN PRESS COURSEULLES-SUR-MER, France — Well before the dignitaries descended Friday, Mark Wyatt and his father Chris strolled the sands of Juno Beach, reflecting on the terrible history of seven decades earlier. The Canadian father-and-son pair came to remember and reflect on the spot where more than 350 other Canadian fathers lost their sons 70 years ago in the D-Day attack on France’s Normandy coast. “Being here, it is very evident from the scenery time has not eroded the things that happened here,” said 21-year-old Wyatt, of Orillia, Ont., whose father is an Ontario Provincial Police superintendent. Added the elder Wyatt: “I can’t imagine what a hell on earth it was 70 years ago, but I’m glad I came.” By day’s end, they were joined at Juno by Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who was on hand to address a crowd of thousands, including 99 Canadian D-Day veterans, joined by Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall. The sweep of history collided with moments of profound personal reflection and
real-time political drama during Harper’s long sojourn along the Normandy coast to mark the anniversary. “Today, we stand where Canadians bled on DDay,” the prime minister said. “What you did here will never be forgotten,” Harper told the veterans, men in or close to their 90s, who waited patiently under a baking sun for hours — resplendent in their medal-heavy uniforms — to hear Harper’s words. “I know I speak for all Canadians when I say a sincere and heartfelt, ‘Thank you.”’ On June 6, 1944, Juno and four other beaches — code-named Utah, Omaha, Gold and Sword — were stormed by an invasion force of 130,000 U.S., British and Canadian soldiers. They came ashore to attack hundreds of Nazi troops in concrete fortified gun positions. Earl Jewers, 92, was part of the second wave of troops to hit the beach one hour after the first assault. He and his fellow soldiers made it “eight miles” in land, he said. “That was the furthest of anyone on D-Day.” Jewers hasn’t been back since, and he said he’s happy he finally got the chance to see Juno Beach again, with his daughter and grandson along this
Vets have mixed feelings 70 years later BY THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — Some Canadian veterans of D-Day and the Normandy campaign say they have mixed feelings about the world that emerged from the bloodshed of the Second World War. “I’m proud of what I did, and what the Western world did. It was something that needed to be done,” says Larry Wulff, 92, a former Royal Canadian Air Force leading aircraftsman and radar operator, who went overseas in the early 1940s and served until the end of the war in Europe. But Wulff says he misses the strong sense of purpose that the war gave his generation, whether social, economic or political. “Purpose now seems to be to get a faster car, or other material things,” he said in an interview. Wulff says the politics of division that has emerged in the last two decades in Canada, the U.S. and other parts of the world especially grates. “The political morass we seem to be in all of time and the infighting and the negative advertising between all of the parties” are dispiriting, he said, also citing modern episodes of ethnic cleansing he had
hoped would be stopped by the Allied victory. A number of veterans interviewed by The Canadian Press about their Second World War experiences expressed similar misgivings, which historian Desmond Morton says is understandable. For a time following the war, the veterans got the world they had been fighting for, at least in the economic sense. There was widespread poverty prior to the postwar boom and by the end of the 1950s, the higher standard of living meant only 15 per cent of the population in Canada could be classified as poor. But Morton, an emeritus professor at Montreal’s McGill University, says the old soldiers rightly feel that the gains they made won’t be enjoyed much longer by their grandchildren and great-grandchildren. “They feel it’s slipping away and it may be because most people today don’t understand what they should be fighting for,” he said. “The ability to live; to eat; to put a roof over your family’s head, which are pretty important, basic, basic needs. And we weren’t meeting those needs in 1939. I think the world is better than it was in 1939 in all sorts of ways. It’s also got some pretty horrible features.”
time. “It has changed so much,” Jewers said. “I don’t know. You try to keep out ... memories.” Jewers’s 67-year-old daughter, Joan Lewis, said she was proud to come here with her dad and his grandson. “It all seems to come together more — the reality.” The political realities of the current Ukraine crisis, which has spawned many parallels with the Second World War aggression of Nazi Germany, also permeated Friday’s events. In a much-anticipated moment, Harper joined Russian President Vladimir Putin at a leaders’ luncheon after starting the day by participating in a wreath-laying ceremony at the Beny-sur-mer Canadian Cemetery, where more than 2,000 men, mostly Canadians, are buried. Harper moved on to a luncheon hosted by French President Francois Hollande before the start of the major International Ceremony of Remembrance commemorating the attack. Putin arrived as U.S. President Barack Obama, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British Prime Minister David Cameron, Queen Elizabeth and many other world leaders assembled for the day’s events.

New Democrat MP suspended from caucus over criminal charge
Man with axe stopped by police in Montreal subway MONTREAL — A construction worker who carried an axe onto the subway was stopped and ticketed by Montreal police today. Police say the man was on his way to work and the axe was one of his tools. People who had spotted him carrying the implement called the 911 emergency line around 9 a.m., prompting the police intervention. Officers intercepted the man at the east-end Berri-UQAM subway station. Montreal Transit Commission regulations forbid the unsecured transportation of anything that can be considered a weapon.

OTTAWA — New Democrat MP Manon Perreault has been suspended from the party’s caucus over newly laid criminal charges of public mischief. Perreault, 48, faces three counts of mischief in connection with allegations she falsely accused someone of theft, according to documents filed in court. Perreault, who represents the Quebec riding of Montcalm, was first elected to the House of Commons in 2011, part of a wave of New Democrats from the province. The NDP says Perreault has the right to a fair process and a full and complete defence, and it will not comment further as the matter is before the courts. Perreault’s party biography says she began her career as an administrator, working for Montreal-based financial institutions. Perreault, who uses a wheelchair, was also a trainer with Keroul, an organization promoting tourism for people with disabilities. She sat on municipal council in Sainte-MarieSalome from 2002 to 2009.

Moncton rallies around RCMP THREE MURDER CHARGES LAID IN MOUNTIE DEATHS BY KEVIN BISSETT, KEITH DOUCETTE AND ANDY BLATCHFORD THE CANADIAN PRESS
Neighbours stunned to learn Bourque charged MONCTON, N.B. — A type of quiet settled over the neighbourhood where Justin Bourque grew up Friday as residents struggled with news that a man raised in a well-liked, church-going family was now at the centre of one of New Brunswick’s worst mass killings. Residents in the west-end Moncton district expressed a mix of sadness, disbelief and concern for the family after Bourque’s arrest in the shooting deaths of three Mounties. A man who described himself as Bourque’s childhood friend teared up as he stood in front of the family home, saying he was trying to figure out what happened to his pal, how he could end up accused of lashing out with such violence. “I’ve known him since I was eight,” said the man who didn’t want to be named. “I was just hoping that they were here because I wanted to share my condolences. ... It’s unbelievable.” Three officers were killed and two were wounded on Wednesday night. Bourque made his first court appearance Friday charged with three counts of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder. A local church administrator said it had been many years since she had seen Bourque, who moved out of the family home about 18 months ago. But Dianne LeBlanc said his parents never missed a Sunday service at the Roman Catholic church around the corner from their home. They often arrived, she added, with at least a couple of their grown children in tow. “They’re a good family,” LeBlanc said in the diocese offices adjacent to the church. “They were such good Catholics. I’m sure (parishioners) are very sad for them.” LeBlanc added that parents Victor and Denise home-schooled their children, who were raised with French as their first language. “I didn’t know of any troubles,” she said of the 24-year-old suspect, who was apprehended by police a few kilometres from his childhood home. “They’re very quiet. It’s shocking.” Others in the neighbourhood were protective of the family. A woman who lived across the street only offered a short response to reporters by saying people in the leafy residential area had received news of the arrest “very sadly.” “My heart is with the family,” said the woman, who did not want to give her name. The Canadian Press did not get a response at the family home on Friday. The man next door to the Bourques said he was concerned for the well-being of Bourque’s parents, a couple he described as kind and friendly. John Doubt said Victor Bourque has shovelled his driveway and watered his flowers whenever he’s been out of town. “My heart really goes out to them, they must be in terrible shape,” said Doubt.
MONCTON, N.B. — A man facing murder charges after three RCMP officers were gunned down in Moncton appeared briefly in court Friday, 17 hours after his arrest ended a manhunt that kept the small city in southern New Brunswick on edge with people locked in their homes. Justin Bourque was arrested shortly after midnight Friday inside a large perimeter in the city set up by police to contain him after one of the worst mass shootings in the RCMP’s history. Three officers were killed Wednesday and two others were injured. The city rallied around the Mounties on Friday night as hundreds attended a vigil in the rain outside RCMP headquarters. The steps to the building were piled high with flowers. “We have to appreciate what they are doing,” said Victor Babineau of nearby Dieppe. “Maybe we don’t do it as much as we should.” A spontaneous reception line formed as people walked up to thank two officers, shaking their hands. Heather Russell of Riverview watched the gathering crowd with mixed emotions. “It’s a very sad occasion but you have to be proud at the same time,” she said. Bourque, 24, is charged with three counts of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder. He appeared in provincial court, packed with about 70 people, under heavy guard.

The RCMP say the Moncton man was unarmed at the time of his arrest. A witness said he surrendered to police, uttering the words: “I’m done.” His arrest ended a search that lasted nearly 30 hours and brought the city of 69,000 people to a virtual standstill. A large swath of northwestern Moncton had been locked down after the officers were shot, with residents asked to remain inside their homes with their doors locked. Supt. Marlene Snowman said while Bourque was unarmed when he was arrested, police found weapons near the wooded residential area where he was taken into custody. Pausing to gather her composure, Snowman thanked residents for keeping their outdoor lights on, an aid to police in their night-time search. “It has been a very challenging 30 hours or more for the officers who worked around the clock to get this done,” she told a news conference.

BY THE CANADIAN PRESS MONTREAL â€” An international trade panel has decided not to review whether Canada is enforcing its own environmental legislation to protect its polar bear population. The Commission for Environmental Co-operation voted 2-1 to reject a request for an investigation into why Canada has chosen not to designate the bears as threatened or endangered. A U.S. environmental group had filed a submission claiming that decision leaves the bears without protection, despite the ongoing loss of their seaice habitat and resulting projections of declining numbers. â€œWeâ€™re obviously disappointed,â€? said Sarah Uhleman, lawyer for the Center for Biological Diversity, which filed the complaint. Uhleman pointed out the vote went against a recommendation from the commissionâ€™s experts, who said there were â€œopen questionsâ€? about Canadaâ€™s polar bear policies. â€œA political decision rejected an expertâ€™s recommendation.â€? The commission was formed as part of the North American Free Trade Agreement in an effort to ensure that open markets donâ€™t put downward pressure on environmental legislation. Canada, the U.S. and Mexico each have one vote. The U.S voted against Canada.

The centre had argued that Canada failed to use the best available science to evaluate risks to the bears and did not meet its own legal deadlines to enact protection for them. Uhleman said the submissionâ€™s goal was both to restrict Canadaâ€™s ongoing polar bear hunt and put pressure on the Canadian government to improve its record on fighting climate change, which experts agree is the chief threat to the bearâ€™s survival. â€œItâ€™s about Canada recognizing that climate change is a really big threat to the polar bear and to the Arctic itself,â€? she said. â€œCanada is not doing particularly well in fighting climate change.â€? The commission ruled that an investigation would simply republish information that was already public. It also declined to second-guess policy decisions made by the Canadian government. â€œCertain issues the (experts) deemed to be â€™central open questionsâ€™ are aimed at seeking details on protected government decision-making processes and cabinet deliberations, which is not permitted under ... the agreement,â€? the decision says. Canadaâ€™s polar bear policies have come under fire from the international community before. The United States has twice tried to convince a group responsible for monitoring and controlling trade in endangered species that Canadian polar bear products such as hides should come under the same restricted category as elephant ivory.

TORONTO â€” Toronto Mayor Rob Ford appeared intoxicated when he received an after-hours visit from a woman at his office just days before announcing he would go to rehab, a city hall security report shows. The report, which was obtained through an access to information request, says the unidentified woman arrived through an employee entrance just before 8 p.m. Easter Monday and stayed in the mayorâ€™s office about 45 minutes. At the time, â€œthe mayor appeared to be intoxicated as he was slurring his words, red in the face and sweating profusely,â€? the report reads. Security video also obtained through access to information shows the mayor being brought to a car in the city hall parking garage by his councillor brother Doug Ford and another guard just before 10 p.m. â€œThe mayor can be seen stumbling around and even falling to the ground before being seated in the vehicle,â€? the report says. Doug Ford is seen getting into the driverâ€™s seat with his brother on the passenger side. The car leaves the parking garage a few minutes later, after first attempting to take the wrong exit. The woman does not appear in the video. Asked about the incident Friday, Doug Ford said he was â€œnot too sureâ€?
â€˜THE MAYOR CAN BE SEEN STUMBLING AROUND AND EVEN FALLING TO THE GROUND BEFORE BEING SEATED IN THE VEHICLE.â€™
who treated him after the attack in January at a small apartment complex in the Dominican Republic were surprised. â€œThe doctors were sort of shaking their heads the next day. They thought there were nine wounds in me and it turned out there were 10,â€? Lehmann told reporters assembled Friday in the backyard of his son and daughter-inlawâ€™s home in suburban Winnipeg. â€œBut they said there were no bullets in me and (the thieves) didnâ€™t hit anything vital â€” didnâ€™t hit my head, didnâ€™t hit my chest, didnâ€™t hit my stomach.â€?

what happened that night but that he and his brother are â€œlooking at moving forward.â€? â€œRob is doing great at his treatment centre and we look forward to him getting out on June 30,â€? he said. The mayor announced on April 30 he was seeking help for an alcohol problem, just as new allegations of substance abuse surfaced in several published reports. The Toronto Star and the U.S. website Gawker first reported in May 2013 seeing a video that appeared to show the mayor smoking crack cocaine. Months later, Ford admitted to trying the drug while in one of his â€œdrunken stuporsâ€? and to using drugs while in office. That led council to strip him of most of his mayoral duties. Though the mayor then publicly swore off alcohol, he was later forced to admit to drinking after another videotaped incident in which he used Jamaican swear words and slagged the cityâ€™s chief of police.

A6 Putin in Normandy a reminder
The presence of President Vladimir Putin on the Normandy beaches on the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings was planned long before the current conflict over Ukraine, but it is a useful reminder of the fact that Russia is not some Asiatic tyranny on Europe’s eastern borders. It is a European country that has played a major role in the continent’s affairs for centuries. Not only were the Russians on the same side as the “Western” allies in the Second World War. They did most of the heavy lifting in the war against Nazi Germany, and they paid by far the highest price. While 850,000 American, GWYNNE British and Canadian troops DYER were landing on the French coast in June of 1944, 6 million soldiers of the Soviet army were fighting massive battles with the German army in eastern Europe. The land war on the Eastern Front was already three years old, and by June of 1944 the Russians had won: the Germans had already begun the long retreat that ended above Hitler’s bunker in Berlin eleven months later. The price the Russians paid for their victory over Nazi Germany was huge: at least 11 million military dead (compared to fewer than 1 million dead for the Western allies). No other country in history has lost so many soldiers, but in the end it was the Red Army that destroyed Hitler’s Wehrmacht: 80 percent of Germany’s 6 million military dead were killed on the Eastern Front. The main strategic significance of the Normandy landings, therefore, was not the defeat of Germany, which was already assured. It was the fact that Moscow had to accept that Europe would be divided between the victors down the middle of Germany, rather than along some line further west that ran down the Franco-German border, or even down the English Channel. President Putin, who began his career as a KGB agent working in Soviet-dominated East Germany, will certainly be aware of the irony that he is commemorating a military operation whose main result was to contain Soviet power. And his presence will remind all the other participants that the Second World War was not really fought to defend democracy from tyranny. Hitler never intended to conquer Britain, and was surprised when his armed forces overran France in 1940. He was certainly not out to “conquer the world”, a preposterous ambition for a country of only 80 million people. His real target was Russia: the “JewishBolshevik” Soviet Union. And he couldn’t even conquer that. Unlike previous great-power wars, the two world wars had to be represented as moral crusades against evil because new wealth and technology turned them into total wars that required mass participation. If people are going to be asked to sacri-

Russian President Vladimir Putin heads to speak at a navy parade marking Victory Day in Sevastopol, Crimea, on May 14, 2014. fice vast numbers of their children in a war, they must be told that it has some higher purpose than the traditional one of settling disputes among the great powers. The people who lived through the First World War were fed that lie, but we no longer believe it now. To a remarkable extent, the countries that fought on the Allied side in the Second World War still believe that it was a moral crusade, because Hitler was a very evil man. So he was, but almost nobody in the countries that were fighting him knew about the death camps until the war was over. Moreover, the country that was carrying the heaviest burden in the war against Nazi Germany was a monstrous tyranny led by Joseph Stalin, a man who certainly rivalled Hitler in terms of how many millions of people he murdered. It seems churlish to insist that the Second World War was just another great-power conflict on the day when the last survivors of the generation who fought in it are gathering, probably for the last time, to honour those who died on the beaches of Normandy. But there is no other time when people will actually pause to listen to such an assertion, and it is important that they understand it. If the world wars were moral crusades against
evil, then our only hope of avoiding more such tragedies in the future (probably fought with nuclear weapons) would be to extinguish evil in the world. Whereas if they were actually traditional great-power wars, lightly disguised, then we might hope to stop them just by changing the way that the international system works. That was the real conclusion of the governments on the winning side in both world wars. It’s why they created the League of Nations after the first one, and the United Nations after the second. Both organizations were designed to break the cycle of great-power wars by criminalizing those who start wars and taking the profit out of victory (because nobody will ever recog 0 d nize your conquests even if you win). The League of Nations failed, as first attempts often do, but the United Nations did not. There has been no Third World War, and no great power has fought any other for the past 69 years. Putin’s presence in Normandy was an embarrassment precisely because he broke the UN rules by forcibly annexing Crimea, but the enterprise is still, on the whole, a success. So far, so good.

Paradise Lost: Canada and Turks and Caicos WHY CAN’T WE GET OUR ACT TOGETHER AND MAKE A SERIOUS PROPOSAL TO ANNEX THE ISLANDS? BY LEE TUNSTALL ADVOCATE NEW SERVICES CALGARY — This past winter sucked. Everybody I know agrees with me, and various medical practitioners I have spoken with confirmed the anecdotal evidence. From coast to coast, Canadians were fed up with winter this winter. Which leads me to my pet theory: that Canadians only have so many winters in them before we need to escape. I believe that number to be somewhere around 50 (no coincidence that I just turned that happy half century number.) It also made me think about failed Canadian foreign policy, especially with the Turks and Caicos Premier Rufus Ewing paying us an official visit recently. Three times over the past 40 years, Canada has had the opportunity to add to our confederation by inviting the Turks and Caicos Islands into our union in some form or another. These islands are home to some 32,000 people, many of whom think joining up with our raggedy band of winter snowbirds is a dandy idea. I’m amazed as to why this idea cannot seem to find traction with federal politicians. Turks and Caicos’ average temperature is 29 degrees Celsius, with a variance of just two degrees throughout the entire year. In other words, it is always summer on these islands. Can you imagine it? Of course you can’t — you’re Canadian. It seems our provincial politicians are far easier to persuade. Nova Scotia politicians were on the case a decade ago. In 2004 they invited the islands to join the prov-

ince in order to streamline and fast-track the inclusion process. The Islands would not have to be admitted as a separate province in this case and thereby avoid any nasty constitutional wrangling. An elegant, cunning solution. Bravo, Nova Scotians, bravo. And during this latest visit, the premiers of Saskatchewan and PEI tweeted invitations to do the same. Is it any wonder then, when MP Peter Goldring brought the idea up in the House of Commons again in 2013, Premier Ewing was not overly enthusiastic, saying that Turks and Caicos Islanders would have to persuade him it was something that they wanted to do. Of course they would. What he was too polite to add was that it would be great if Canada could get its act together too and make a serious proposal. In the 1990s, Islanders were keen to join Canada, with support for the proposed union sitting in the 90th percentile. In 2003, that percentage had dropped to 60 per cent. Hardly surprising when you propose marriage and are rebuffed twice. Your desire dwindles. The usual reasons given for our continued disinterest are difficult constitutional discussions (reference Nova Scotia above), health-care costs for the Islanders (probably no more than $20 per capita in extra taxes annually — I’d pay it), and discomfort with annexation (it sounds so colonial after all.) But I think the real reason is far simpler: international foreign policy has little idea how to handle such a situation. Most types of annexation, especially of islands, are the result of either conquest or wars and subsequent treaties. Thus, Puerto Rico joined the U.S. as a territory in 1898 after the Spanish lost the Spanish-

American War and ceded the island. It took Spain almost the entire 15th century to establish control over the Canary Islands, after many military campaigns. So what happens when an island approaches a larger country in good faith, in peace time and of its own free will? There doesn’t seem to be a lot of past history for annexing an island under these circumstances. But just because it hasn’t been done, doesn’t mean it isn’t worth doing. Full-blown provincial annexation is also not the only form of association open to us. I trust that Premier Ewing is acutely aware of this when he stated: “There’s no marriage without some kind of relationship.” Again, the U.S provides a good example with American Samoa, which is an unorganized and unincorporated territory administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, Office of Insular Affairs, as is Guam. Or there’s even the free association agreement that the Cook Islands has with New Zealand, whereby New Zealand acts on foreign affairs and defence issues, but only with islanders’ advice and consent. And lest you think this is Canada’s first foray into possibly annexing a Caribbean island, we’ve also had interest from Bermuda, the Bahamas, Belize and even Jamaica over the years. Whatever the way forward, I simply want there to be a way forward. Economic, political, or just plain twinning Turks and Caicos with P.E.I. and/or Vancouver Island, let’s just get ‘er done. I feel another Canadian winter stalking me as I write this.

Another example of collaborative innovation is the Cisco Canada to plan to open a $100 million innovation hub in Toronto, one of four announced by its U.S. parent (the others are in Germany, Brazil and South Korea) to advance what Cisco calls the Internet of Everything. This, the next stage of the Internet revolution, will transform our world in radical ways, much of it based on huge advances in wireless technology. This will permit the connection of billions of sensors and other devices to everything from our homes and driverless cars to commercial buildings, education, healthcare systems, factories, water and other environmental systems, and traffic control to monitor, control and generate data for decisionmaking. The goal is to create in downtown Toronto ‘a sandbox’ where companies and governments seeking new applications of the Internet of Everything, IT experts, university researchers and entrepreneurs can collaborate, trading ideas and identifying opportunities. At the same time, Cisco Canada president Nitin Kiwale told a recent Conference Board of Canada summit on innovation in Toronto, Cisco plans to launch its own venture capital fund to help new companies. It also plans to add 1,700 jobs at its Ottawa R&D centre. Another example: IBM Canada and 7 Ontario universities in 2012 launched the Southern Ontario Smart Computing
Innovation Platform, with $175 million from IBM Canada, $20 million from the federal government’s FedDev Ontario and $15 million from Ontario’s Ministry of Research and Innovation. It includes Canada’s fastest supercomputer. The goal is to boost collaboration between university researchers and small and midsize companies to develop new technologies that meet big challenges in energy distribution and management, smarter urban infrastructure, transportation and communications, water conservation, management and delivery, and health projects in brain science, healthcare applications and drug discovery. Some 32 companies have already been formed and IBM is working with Ontario Centres of Excellence for funding support for new companies, Pat Horgan, IBM Canada’s vice president of Manufacturing, Development and Operations told the Conference Board summit. The focus on collaboration between different firms and between firms and academia is not a compete cure-all for Ontario’s economic recovery. But it would appear to offer one way in which Ontario and Canada can better realize the benefits from the large investments in university and college education and academic research and development.

Google’s driverless cars will be scooting around southern California.
A little smiling egg or a bug-eyed Sprite? Ok, so you are driving along the road, or walking down the street, or napping in a lawn chair on a lawn somewhere and ‘putt putt putt putt’ a little car goes by. ‘So what?’ you may say, and I wouldn’t blame you a bit. But — double take — you look again, and whoa…! — there’s no one in the car! It putts-putts on by, maneuvering happily through traffic and, no, you are not hallucinating on account of that muscle relaxant medication you took for your sore back – that car is actually driving itself! And also no, this isn’t an episode of the Twilight Zone or an article from a 1950 Popular Mechanics. The future, as they say, is now. As reported everywhere this week, the interweb giant Google has announced that as of this HARLEY summer 100 little driverless HAY Google cars will be “introduced” into the real live streets of Mountain View, California. But I can hear you saying: ‘Isn’t Google that search engine thingy that has all those interesting and fun little “Doodles” they do with their logo when you are attempting to search for the price of a garden shed on the interweb?’ Yes, my cyberfriends, that is the very same Google. But what, you may ask, and you are certainly full of questions this week, aren’t you, what on earth is Google doing in the driverless car business of all things? Well, you hit the proverbial nail on the noggin. Part of the answer is in your question: Google Earth. You know that totally scary program where you can put in an address of, say, an old girlfriend who you just happen to know now lives at 154 Brokeyourheart Road in Shedumpedyagooden, Switzerland, and — yikes — some black magic digital Google camera zooms in from some orbiting satellite up by the moon somewhere right into Switzerland, and then the town of Shedumpedyagooden and then right up to 154 Brokeyourheart Road where it shows a lovely picture of her house. In Switzerland. On your computer screen. Is this possible? Is this legal? Is that her in the window?? Google also has something called Google Glass, which has nothing to do with drinking anything and everything to do with looking at stuff. Google Glass is a wearable hands-free computer built into a set of eyeglasses. You can take photos and video with your glasses and give it voice commands for sending and displaying texts and emails and maps that are floating around in your vision path, and you can fly. Ok, so I exaggerated that last part a bit, but the point is, this other-worldly technology like Google Earth Street View, GPS navigational guidance, and Google Glass combined with other seriously sophisticated voodoo computer technology all goes into the world’s first truly public, self-driving car. And — even more important — it looks like a little smiling egg! The little smiling egg resembles one of those little two-seater Smart cars, only with a spinning thingamajig bolted onto the roof.
The spinning thingamajig turns out to be a laser scanner that (unfortunately) doesn’t shoot visible laser beams like a Star Wars X-Wing fighter, but apparently (supposedly) monitors the presence of objects like other cars, inanimate obstacles and humans so that the driverless car can avoid hitting said objects. To be clear to the point of giving one the heebie jeebies, we’re not talking about a computer assisted autonomous driving experience whereby the car helps the driver navigate through the flotsam and jetsam of any normal perilous journey on our roads. The Google Car has NO steering wheel, NO brakes, and NO gas pedal. Just two seats and, one presumes, very very good seat belts and air bags. The only control the driverless passenger has is a start button, and what Google calls “a big red emergency stop button”. Which either makes you even more reassured and confident, or much more anxious and leery depending on your personal psychological stability profile. Don’t worry though, I believe you can still play with the buttons on the radio. All this reminds me of my buddy John pulling unexpectedly up to my place in Parkvale a hundred years ago or so. The last time I had seen him, a few days earlier, he had been riding his 305 Super Hawk Honda motorcycle (the most coveted two-wheeler of its day) but the moment he roared up in a little blue sports car I knew his, and in fact, my own motorcycle days were officially over. It turned out to be an Austin Healey Sprite, also known as the Bug-Eyed Sprite (or in England, the FrogEyed Sprite) on account of it looks like a bug instead of an egg. However, it certainly wasn’t driverless. In fact I soon found out that driving in it was just about the most fun you can have in a car. (Hey — I’m talking about a tiny sports car with two seats — shame on you for thinking what you’re thinking!) I’m all for technology, in fact high on my bucket list is to own a full-on electric car some day before I tip over, but I’m deeply conflicted about the little smiling egg Google Car. Let’s not forget they are run by computers — computers invented and built by humans. Would you trust Windows Vista or a Mac iBook to take your life in its little mouse hands and drive you around in a car without a steering wheel or brakes? “Warning! Your car has been infected by a virus and will immediately and automatically accelerate to 120 km/hr. This program will close upon impact…” No matter; it’s inevitable. But the cute little egg driverless Google Car may be rapidly heading down that uncertain road to the future and it may be the last car I ever not drive, and it may be an outright miracle, what with the laser beams, and satellite beams and computer streams right out of the Twilight Zone, but still, for me, that best-friend Bug-Eyed Sprite out of the fresh sunrise dawning days of youth was pure magic. And it had a steering wheel. Harley Hay is a local freelance writer, award-winning author, filmmaker and musician. His column appears on Saturdays in the Advocate.

I’m sitting at my computer with the volume turned up and listening, although not to music at this moment; it’s something else that only technology can provide. At the same time I am looking out the window at all the new greenery that the warm weather and rain have produced. The sound I am listening to is the prospect of new life; the heartbeat of our yet to be born second grandchild! Like I stated already, it is one of the marvels of technology that enables this to be possible, and to bring joy into the hearts of distant grandparents. When I consider a CHRIS lot of the things I have written about in the last SALOMONS while, much of it the negative goings on in life, it almost makes me fearful of the thought of raising a child in this generation. Think about it; the use of drugs so out of control that thoughts are toward the legalization of some of it; governments so self-serving that they no longer have the pulse of the mainstream, all respect for authority and controlled living by the wayside; even ridiculed, terrorism increasing every day, and more suicides than ever before. Is this really the world I would want to bring a child into? On the surface of it, I would automatically say ‘no, thank you very much’. With the prospect of bringing a child into an uncertain world with a future that is dim at best is not to my way of thinking very responsible or practical. But deep down, there is something else at play here; something that gives me the licence and the resolve to say yes. You see, when I look at the children that have been born who have suffered at the hands of those they looked up to for life, then I am fearful for any child, but there is another aspect to this dilemma. I look at those parents who through their love, faith and determined perseverance took the time to nourish their child through discipline and encouragement and the way that child grew up to respect and love and encourage others gives me a clearer picture for the future. Those parents gave up time for themselves to invest in their children, they took up child raising as a calling rather than as a chore to be handled. Using the discipline of restraint to teach self control and respect, and treating themselves as parents and teachers instead of buddies, they taught the children to respect authority. There are more aspects to child raising than what I have time or space for here, but the results are what encourages me. When I look at these children when they have grown, I see loving, caring, and giving adults who take the time that others take only for themselves, and they care for others in order to help give them a better life. I see the self restraint with which they themselves were taught being used so that time and resources can be given to those who through a myriad of circumstances need a compassionate, caring and helpful friend. When I look at future life in those terms, then my mind is made up. No longer do I fear raising a child in this world. With the lessons learned from responsible loving people, I have the greatest of all encouragements; HOPE.

Boko Haram militants kill hundreds of villagers in new attack MAIDUGURI, Nigeria — When men wearing military fatigues and carrying weapons showed up in pickup trucks, villagers thought Nigerian soldiers had finally come to protect them from Boko Haram. But it was a disguise. The gunmen rounded up everyone in the village centre and then started shooting. Altogether, Boko Haram militants slaughtered hundreds of people in three villages in the far northeast corner of Nigeria, witnesses said Thursday, describing the latest attack by the Islamic extremist group that drew international attention for the kidnapping of more than 300 schoolgirls. A community leader who witnessed the killings on Monday said residents had pleaded for the military to send soldiers to protect the area after they heard that militants were about to attack. The militants arrived in Toyota HiLux pickup trucks — commonly used by the military — and told the civilians they were soldiers and that they had come “to protect you all,” the same tactic used by the group when they kidnapped the girls from a school in the town of Chibok on April 15. “We all thought they were the soldiers whom we earlier reported to that the insurgents might attack us,” said the community leader, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he feared for his life. After the militants forced everyone into the village centres, “they began to shout ’Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar,’ then they started to fire at the people continuously for a very long time until all who had gathered were dead,” he said. Allahu akbar means God is great. The killings took place in the villages of Danjara, Agapalwa, and Antagara, part of Gwoza district in Borno state. The community leader said he fled to Maiduguri, the Borno state capital, adding that some who escaped the massacre crossed into the neighbouring country of Cameroon while others remain trapped in the mountainous region. “They still see the gunmen going about attack-
Phoenix woman told to stop doing cartwheels at public meetings PHOENIX — A Phoenix woman will have to keep both feet on the ground if she wants to speak at any public meetings. Sixty-five-year-old Dianne Barker told KSAZ-TV this week that she’s been banned from doing cartwheels at meetings held by the Maricopa Association of Governments. An attorney for the association that oversees regional transportation projects said in a letter to Barker last month that she must “immediately cease performing cartwheels.” Agency spokeswoman Kelly Taft tells The Associated Press that Barker’s cartwheels are disruptive and a public safety liability. Barker says she will obey the association’s request. She was a cheerleader in college and says the cartwheels are a way for her to show her passion. Taft says the association appreciates Barker’s enthusiasm, but she should show it verbally.
Texas Republican Party pushes an endorsement of discredited psychological treatment for gays FORT WORTH, Texas — Republicans in the deeply conservative and fiercely independent state of Texas are pushing a discredited psychological treatment that seeks to turn gay people straight. The American Psychological Association and other major health organizations have condemned such counselling, which generally tries to change a person’s sexual orientation or to lessen his or her interest in engaging in same-sex sexual activity.

Putin talks with incoming Ukrainian leader on ending violence OUISTREHAM, France — Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke face-to-face with Ukraine’s incoming president about ending the violence in the former Soviet state, and Kyiv’s new leader said talks could begin in earnest as soon as Sunday — a diplomatic breakthrough playing out along the battlefield beaches of Normandy. Friday’s 15-minute meeting was followed by a brief exchange between Putin and President Barack Obama, who had been keeping the Russian at arm’s length over the Ukrainian crisis. Tensions between the two were played out on giant televisions on Ouistreham’s Sword Beach, with Putin and Obama shown divided by a split screens as they commemorated the 70th anniversary of D-Day. Speaking after his meeting with Petro Poroshenko — who is to be sworn in Saturday as Ukraine’s president — Putin called for an immediate cease-fire in eastern Ukraine before any further talks, and said he expected Poroshenko to show “state wisdom” and “good will.” Poroshenko later said talks could begin in earnest on his first full day in office. “All the questions were difficult,” Poroshenko said in a statement to The Associated Press before returning to Ukraine, “but we will make every effort to achieve the goals we have set ourselves and begin negotiations on Sunday.”

groups say the practice should not be used on minors because of the danger of serious psychological harm. But a push to include the new anti-gay language in the Texas Republican Party’s platform survived a key vote late Thursday at the party’s convention in Fort Worth, and the party is poised to adopt it this weekend. The move by Texas Republicans comes amid a growing acceptance of same-sex marriage throughout the United States. State marriage bans have been falling around the country since the U.S. Supreme Court last year struck down part of the federal Defence of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as between a man and a woman. Gay couples can already marry in 19 of 50 states plus Washington, D.C., And in eight more states including Texas, federal judges have struck down bans and officials decided not to appeal.

In the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, I recorded a 3-minute black and white movie screen test using the same setup Warhol once used to test someone’s star potential. Shortly after pressing the start button to begin filming, I regretted my decision to just wing it. Three DEBBIE minutes feels OLSEN like an eternity when a lens is staring you in the face and you have nothing to do. After rearranging my sunglasses several times, I pulled an apple out of my camera
bag and began gnawing away at it. I wasn’t sure what people did in these screen tests and as the camera clicked off, I couldn’t help wondering if Warhol would have approved of my artistic efforts. Moving to another section of the museum, I passed a sign that made me sure I had been on the right track. The sign read: “No food or drink in the museum.” Turns out I had broken a rule while making my short film and for that reason alone I believe Andy Warhol would have approved.

nia was the birthplace of Andy Warhol, a controversial artist who was one of the leading figures in the pop art movement of the 1960s. Burton Morris,
modern day pop art master was also born and raised in Pittsburgh, so it’s not surprising that the city is one of the top places in the world to explore the phenomenon of pop art in its many forms.

STORY FROM PAGE B1
POP ART: Experimental Andy Warhol Museum The Andy Warhol Museum is the largest museum dedicated to a single artist in the United States devoting seven floors to the pop-art icon. The museum includes thousands of works in many different kinds of media including drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, film and video. There’s also a broad range of source materials that lend insight into Warhol’s progression as an artist and his creative processes. It is best to start at the museum’s top floor and work your way down following the progression of Andy Warhol from an art student to a commercial graphics artist to a pop artist who experimented in many different mediums. Many of Warhol’s seminal works like the Elvis paintings, the Brillo Box sculptures, the Chairman Mao paintings, and the Skull paintings can be found in the museum, which has both permanent exhibits and rotating displays. For me, the most interesting item on display was the ever-so-polite 1956 rejection letter that Warhol received from the New York City Museum of Modern Art after he tried to gift the museum with a drawing he made entitled Shoe. The letter states that “after careful consideration the committee decided they ought not to accept it for their collection, because they were unlikely to display it.” They also requested that he kindly pick up the drawing. Today, two of Warhol’s paintings have sold for more than $100 million dollars ranking in the Top 20 on the list of the highest known prices paid for paintings — ahead of works by Monet, van Gogh and Picasso. The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) owns 168 Warhol pieces including a number of shoe drawings and the rejection letter undoubtedly makes MoMA cringe. It stands as a reminder that it often takes time for the world to recognize greatness and you cannot let criticism stop you from pursuing your dreams.

The Mattress Factory If you have ever wondered what it would be like to step inside a piece of art, then The Mattress Factory contemporary art museum is the place to go. The museum features room-sized installation art pieces created by in-residence artists that are designed for the viewer to actually step inside to experience. The Mattress Factory is widely considered to be the best facility for installation art in the United States. While the pieces are not all pop-art themed, there are many that are based on popular culture and this makes it a good stop when you are exploring pop art in Pittsburgh. The museum gets its name from the fact that it is located in a former Stearns and Foster mattress factory warehouse that was purchased in 1975 by Barbara Luderowski. At the time of purchase, the neighbourhood was considered to be slightly seedy and run-down. The art museum’s popularity has brought up neighbourhood real estate values and has been a boon for a once neglected area of Pittsburgh. The museum has grown to include a permanent collection and a rotating collection of art housed in two buildings. The Mattress Factory considers itself a research and development lab for artists and each year 15 artists are invited to build their art inside the museum. Visitors to the museum literally step inside the art and walk through it engaging all the senses. The permanent collection contains works by several famous artists including Jene Highstein, Yayoi Kusama, James Turrell and Bill Woodrow. This museum really made me think and challenged my perceptions about what art really is. Website: www.mattress.org Hours: Closed Mondays Admission: $15 for adults, $10 for students.
If You Go ● There are no direct flights from Calgary, Edmonton or Red Deer to Pittsburgh. Most flights connect in Toronto or one of the major US hub cities. Flights start at about $535 per person including taxes, but can vary depending on the dates of travel and how far in advance the ticket was purchased. The lowest rates can generally be obtained by purchasing this type of ticket well in advance. ● There are plenty of good hotels in Pittsburgh, amazing museums, great trails to ride or walk, a vibrant sports scene and good restaurants and pubs to enjoy. I stayed at the Windham Grand Pittsburgh Downtown (www.wyndham.com) in a room that had a great view of the river. Rates start at $220 per night depending on availability and the dates of travel. ● For more information about visiting Pittsburgh,
This piece of art by Japanese artists Chiharu Shiota is called ‘Trace of Memory.’ Shiota explores the relationship between waking life and memories through hauntingly beautiful installations that incorporate everyday objects like shoes, pianos and hospital beds encased in webs of yarn. Stretched in multi-layers in a gallery space, Shiota weaves disorienting cocoons of black yarn that reflect the artist’s desire to ‘draw in the air.’
PHOTOS ON PAGE B1 CLOCKWISE FROM TOP: To many people, Andy Warhol was a portrait artist first and foremost. Warhol coined the term ‘15 minutes of fame,’ and he enjoyed painting famous people, such as Marilyn Monroe (top) and Elizabeth Taylor (bottom right) during their 15 minutes of fame. Debbie Olsen plays in Andy Warhol’s ‘Silver Clouds.’ This piece was the result of a collaboration between artist Andy Warhol and engineer Billy Klüver. Exhibited in 1966 at the Leo Castelli Gallery, ‘Silver Clouds’ created an ethereal, joyful atmosphere, and challenged traditional expectations of art by mingling with and touching the viewer. There is a Canadian tie to Andy Warhol’s Brillo Boxes, which are pictured in this shot taken in the Andy Warhol Museum. In 1965, when Toronto art dealer Jerrold Morris tried to import a group of thirty of Warhol’s Brillo Soap Pads Boxes for an exhibition at his gallery, Canadian customs officials questioned their status as art. Following protocol, they contacted Charles Comfort, then-director of the National Gallery of Canada, for clarification. On examining a photograph, Comfort determined the works were not art, but merchandise. Subjected to a duty that Morris refused to pay, the works did not enter Canada. Two years later, Brydon Smith, curator of Contemporary Art, together with Jean Sutherland Boggs, the Gallery’s new director, purchased eight Brillo Boxes. For them, the works were indeed art, and more than that, art worthy of the national collection. Andy Warhol began his career as a graphic artist doing commercial work for various companies – from brochures and sample boards to this beautiful awning.

BY NORM GOLDSTEIN THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CANTERBURY, England — After nearly 1,000 years, murder in the cathedral is still luring visitors to Canterbury. It was in the Canterbury Cathedral in 1170 that Archbishop Thomas Becket was killed, viciously, by four knights who believed they were doing the bidding of King Henry II. As a result, Becket became a martyr and the cathedral a place of pilgrimage to his shrine. The homicide was the subject of Murder in the Cathedral, a verse drama by T.S. Eliot, and was more famously immortalized in Geoffrey Chaucer’s 14th century work, The Canterbury Tales, told in now obsolete Middle English, which focused on one such journey in what had become an annual spring pilgrimage: And specially from every shires ende Of Englande to Caunterbury they wende, The holy blisful martir for to seke, That hem hath holpen whan that they were seeke. It is said that 100,000 pilgrims made their way to the cathedral in 1420, including, as the poem says in its last line, the sick (seeke) whom the shrine cured (hath holpen, or helped). Today, Canterbury Cathedral draws one million visitors a year. Chaucer’s pilgrims made the journey on horseback; today’s visitors are more likely to arrive by plane and car, train or bus from London or Dover. With its sites, shops, and restaurants, pubs and tea rooms concentrated largely in its Old Town area, Canterbury is a comfortable walking city. It is relatively small, with a population of about 150,000. The Stour river runs through the city and at some points is navigable for small boats. Rowboats and punts (flat-bottomed boats like gondolas) can be hired, generally with a local university student serving as oarsman and guide. Kent University and other schools contribute

Image provided by Visit Britain shows Canterbury Cathedral looming over the rooftops and buildings of Canterbury, England. The ancient cathedral, where Archbishop Thomas Becket was martyred in 1107, remains a major pilgrimage site and tourist attraction, visited by a million people a year. to a large local student population. But by far the biggest tourist attraction is Canterbury Cathedral, founded in the year 597. (There is an entrance fee for visitors.) It is a marvelous edifice on spacious property that also houses some buildings of the King’s School, a renowned secondary school. The exterior of the cathedral, an impressive 236 feet (72 metres) high, reflects Romanesque, English Gothic and Gothic architectural styles, with round and pointed arches, blind arcades, and pinnacles of the 14th-century perpendicular Gothic nave. The Trinity Chapel was built specifically for the Shrine of St. Thomas, which stood from 1220 to 1538, when it was destroyed on orders of King Henry VIII. The floor of the current chapel has a set of inlaid marble roundels representing zodiac signs, months, virtues and vices. A lone candle marks the spot of the shrine.
UNESCO World Heritage sites in Canterbury include the cathedral along with St. Augustine’s Abbey (mostly the ruins of the monastery where St. Augustine’s monks lived) and St. Martin’s Church, England’s oldest working parish church. Another popular tourist site is the Norman Canterbury Castle, or at least its remains. The castle was one of three original royal castles of Kent, built soon after the Battle of Hastings on the main Roman road from Dover to London. This was the route taken by William the Conqueror in 1066. The medieval St. Margaret’s Church now houses The Canterbury Tales, an audio-visual presentation of five tales (in modern English) from Chaucer’s most colorful characters, using lifesized character models: the miller, knight, nun’s priest, wife of Bath and pardoner, with live guides at the start (Tabard Inn) and end (shrine of Thomas Becket).
There is, however, little other evidence of Chaucer in Canterbury, aside from this shortened retelling at “The Canterbury Tales” — and a pub by that name. Another famous literary name with a connection to Canterbury is Christopher Marlowe, the Elizabethan poet and playwright (Hero and Leander The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus) who was born in Canterbury in 1564 and attended King’s School there. The city’s modern theatre house is named for him and his death is noted at the clock tower of St. George’s Church. Marlowe was baptized in the church, but its clock tower is all that survived German bombs in World War II. The house believed to be where the Marlowes lived for the early years of Christopher’s life also was destroyed in a German air raid in 1942. In front of the present Marlowe Theatre is a 19th-century statue of a Muse (Marlowe is known as the Muses’ darling) surrounded by small ef-
figies of characters from Marlowe’s plays. All in all, Canterbury proved itself to be a charming and comfortable small city, but it has a big history. If You Go...

Draft picks shine early DE WIT, MAHURA EXPECTED TO CRACK ROSTER FOR 2014-15 SEASON
REBELS PROSPECT CAMP
BY GREG MEACHEM ADVOCATE SPORTS EDITOR The Red Deer Rebels’ first-round pick in the 2013 Western Hockey League bantam draft is right on schedule. Centre Jeff de Wit is projected to crack the Rebels roster for the 2014-15 season, as is defenceman Josh Mahura, the club’s second-round pick last year. Not surprisingly, both players stood out Friday during the first sessions of the club’s spring prospects camp which concludes Sunday morning at the Penhold Regional Multiplex. De Wit, who improved on a weekly basis as a member of the midget AAA Red Deer Optimist Chiefs last winter, scored the lone goal for Team White in a 3-1 loss to Team Black during a 30-minute scrimmage, busting in alone and beating netminder Dawson Weatherill — the Rebels’ second-round pick this year — with a high shot. Making his second appearance at the prospects camp, de Wit admitted he’s feeling more comfortable and certainly more confident this year. “I think there are a little bit more expectations for me this year as I go into my first year of being eligible to be on the team,” said the 16-year-old. “I have to be more of a leader here this weekend.” The six-foot-two, 185-pound pivot is an ongoing work in progress, but is also looking more and more like he fits into the ‘can’t-miss’ category. “No question, he’s certainly developed at the rate we’d like to see,” said Rebels GM/head coach Brent Sutter. “He’s pushing to play on our team this year.” The fact that he was able to play well into April with the Alberta Midget League champion Chiefs, who fell to the Okanagan Rockets in overtime in the third game of the best-of-three Pacific Region final, helped the local product further hone his game. “He played on a team that had a lot of success at the midget AAA level and he was obviously well coached,”

He’s going to be close to a 190-pound player when he comes in as a 16-year-old.” As Sutter noted, de Wit is more mobile than was the case even a year ago. “His skating has improved and part of that is because of his strength,” said
Sutter. “He’s gotten bigger and stronger, but just the other fact is he wants to be a player . . . he trains hard. “And yet in today’s game you have to have skills too, and he works on his skills. Personally, I’m very happy with his progress. Now it’s just the path that we need to keep him on to
allow him to continue to develop.” The former Red Deer major bantam star admitted that his season with the midget AAA Chiefs was huge in terms of his overall development.

Kings pressure opponents mentally, physically BY THE CANADIAN PRESS

New York Rangers defenceman Marc Staal, left, checks Los Angeles Kings right wing Dustin Brown during the first period in Game 1 of the NHL hockey Stanley Cup Finals, Wednesday in Los Angeles.
LOS ANGELES — Big, fast and physical, the Los Angeles Kings play a punishing brand of hockey. But it’s also a smart game. There’s more to the Kings than banging bodies. They take a toll mentally on their opponents. “Very opportunistic, first and foremost,” Rangers defenceman Ryan McDonagh said of the Kings’ game. “They make something out of nothing a few times in the game and that’s what’s dangerous. “You feel like you’ve got them. You feel like you’ve got a simple battle in the corner, you’ve got numbers back. It doesn’t matter, they find a way to get a puck towards the net and get a bounce, get the right body position. You’ve got to maintain your discipline and your focus all the way through until your shift is done.” Goalie Henrik Lundqvist, who faced 20 shots in the third period of the Rangers’ 3-2 overtime loss in Game 1, says the Kings can threaten from anywhere. “They like to throw pucks from the outside, go for rebounds,” said the stylish Swede. “A lot of times you might not think there’s a big chance, but a lot of times they create something from second and third chances, not necessarily from the first shot. “It’s important that you don’t relax even though you feel like you have everything under control maybe in the
first sequence. That’s when they can surprise you a little bit.” “They throw a lot of bodies, throw a lot of pucks on net,” Rangers defenceman Dan Girardi summed up. The Kings certainly have the Rangers’ attention. New York coach Alain Vigneault has spent the last two days urging his team to dig deep for Game 2. “If you’re in the final, and your expectations are to win, you have to bring your best game to the table. Our guys are aware of that,” he said. “Our guys are talking to themselves, between themselves about it. We’re all looking for a better response (Saturday).” Both teams practised Friday — the Rangers at Staples Center and the Kings at their practice facility in suburban El Segundo. There will likely be lineup changes on both sides. Rangers defenceman John Moore, eligible to return from a two-game suspension, resumed his normal spot in practice. And Kings coach Darryl Sutter said veteran defenceman Robyn Regehr, who has been out injured since Game 1 of the Anaheim series, will “probably” play. Vigneault says backup goalie Cam Talbot remains day-do-day with an undisclosed injury. Despite losing last time out, the Rangers were as cool as ice Friday. The message has been to turn the page on Game 1, while turning it up a notch for Game 2.

Buccaneers looking forward to season-opener against Wolfpack BY GREG MEACHEM ADVOCATE SPORTS EDITOR The Central Alberta Buccaneers aren’t living in the past, even if their most recent past was somewhat successful. The Bucs posted a franchise-best 5-1 regular-season record in the 2013 Alberta Football League season before losing to the visiting St. Albert Stars in a semifinal. Heading into their 2014 season-opener tonight at 6:30 p.m. versus the Calgary Wolfpack at Lacombe’s MEGlobal Athletic Park, the Bucs have every intention of playing well into September. “We were absolutely thrilled to put
ALBERTA FOOTBALL LEAGUE together a big season last year, but that was last year, this is now,” said Bucs head coach Duane Brown. “We start off against a perennial power in the league in Game 1 and there’s not a better way to start.” The Buccaneers thrived last season due a substantial improvement in their physical conditioning. “That was huge for us, especially on the defensive side of the ball,” said Brown. “We were able to outlast everybody simply by running faster, going harder and wearing teams down. We’ve altered our offensive scheme this year
and we’re going to be far more reminiscent of our defence. Teams are going to have to be in shape to play against us.” Brown sees the same level of fitness with his squad this year and is also tickled with the potential of his new players. “We’ve added some young talent that is amazing. I’m in awe of some of the young talent that we have this year,” said the Bucs sideline boss, referring to the likes of Lacombe products Junior Riviera, who will start at running back tonight, and Cole Stewart, one of three rookie quarterbacks.

Carolina. Reigning AFL defensive player of the year Ian Keetch has returned to anchor the Bucs’ line, which also features another league all-star in Kerry Lynch. The Buccaneers did lose Sean O’Donnell, the league’s top offensive lineman last season, to the Wolfpack, and quarterback Byron Stearns — another league all-star — and key middle linebacker Curtis Dreger have retired. “Ian is back and he’s chomping at the bit because he gets to go against O’Donnell in the first game. That’s a nice little rivalry right off the bat,” said Brown.

Stroman wins second start for Jays BAUTSITA, LAWRIE HIT HOMERS BY THE CANADIAN PRESS Jays 3 Cardinals 1 TORONTO — Jose Bautista had a game to remember. The Toronto Blue Jays right-fielder had his 15th homer of the season, hit into a triple play, threw a runner out at home and was interfered with by a fan as he tried to catch a foul ball in the ninth that resulted in an out after a video review. To top it off, the Blue Jays defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 3-1 for their sixth win in a row on Friday. “I think it’s got to be the most eventful game I’ve had in my career,” said Bautista, who also extended his hit streak to 12 games. “I’d like to see if anyone can find somebody else with that combination of plays.” Right-hander Marcus Stroman pitched into the seventh inning in his second major-league start, both of them wins. He walked off to a standing ovation. “It’s pretty special,” Stroman said. “I tried to do my best tough guy impersonation and tried not to smile. But it was definitely pretty special walking off.” Bautista lined into a triple play in the sixth inning, the seventh time a triple play had beeen turned by a Blue Jays’ opponent. It was the first triple play against Toronto since May 12, 2008, in the second game of a doubleheader at Cleveland. “It’s the first time it’s happened to me,” Bautista said. Stroman (3-0) held the Cardinals to one run on seven hits, two walks and a hit batter while striking out seven. He was lifted after a leadoff single in the seventh by Tony Cruz. Casey Janssen pitched the ninth inning for his 11th save of the season. Janssen’s second out came as a result of fan interference when Bautista tried to catch a foul ball hit by Cruz. The play was reviewed and Cruz was called out. “I just felt that somebody stuck a

Obviously (the fan) was caught up in the emotion, just like everybody else. The ball is coming to him, he wants a ball hit by a major-leaguer at a major-league baseball game. He’s not thinking about the play the way I am so you can’t blame him for it. But again it doesn’t matter they reviewed it and made the right call.” Right-hander Lance Lynn (6-4) took the loss, allowing six hits — including two home runs — and four walks while striking out six in five innings. The Cardinals (31-31) scored a run in the first. Matt Carpenter led off with
a walk and took third on Matt Holliday’s ground-rule double to right. Allen Craig singled to right to score Carpenter but Holliday was thrown out at home by Bautista. “I think it’s always a good play when you can throw anybody out and prevent a run.” Bautista said. “Whether (Stroman) needed that at that moment in the game that’s more for him to answer, not me. I think he still would have pitched a pretty good game. “The ball was hit to me at the right rate of speed. And I had a chance to throw him out. Dioner (Navarro) made a play terrific play, a fine play because my throw wasn’t as good as it could have been and he still managed to
Air conditioning expected to be ‘fully operational’ for Game 2 BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SAN ANTONIO — When the air conditioning went out in San Antonio, many of the Spurs felt right at home — their native homelands. They are a roster loaded with foreign players, accustomed to playing in places where air conditioning not only isn’t optional, it’s not even available. “It gets crazy sometimes,” forward Boris Diaw from France said Friday. “It goes to 95, 96.” It wasn’t quite that bad inside the AT&T Center during Game 1 of the NBA Finals, where the temperature hovered around 90 degrees and the thermometer got as much attention as the scoreboard in the Spurs’ 110-95 victory. The Spurs weren’t immune to the steamy arena, they just handled it better. They have nine players born outside of the United States, representing an NBA-record seven countries, and even Danny Green, one of their few Americans, played internationally earlier in his career when he couldn’t stick in the NBA. And while Diaw said it was the hottest NBA game he could remember, all the Spurs said they had faced worse. They probably won’t have to endure it again, at least not in this series.

REBELS: Time to prove themselves “Our coach, Doug Quinn, taught me to play both ends of the rink,” said de Wit. “I needed to be consistent game in and game out . . . bring what I do best to each game. That was important.” He also feels he developed some leadership skills along the way. “Maybe I didn’t have the biggest voice in the locker room, but on the ice I wanted to make a statement each game,” he said. “Sure, I had to go through some adversity throughout the year with changing lines, but throughout the year I progressed and by the end of the season I wanted to be a go-to guy on the team, a player who could make a difference during the game.” De Wit came on strong down the stretch of the 2013-14 AMHL season and scored three goals and collected six points in 11 league playoff games. He then centered the Chiefs most dominant line — including Tyler Steenbergen and Trey deGraff — during the Pacific Region final and scored twice and added two assists in Red Deer’s 7-1 Game 2 victory. “As I got bigger and stronger, I thought it really helped my skating and my overall game . . . being able to take D-men wide and use not only my skill but also my feet to make myself a better player,” he said. Now it’s just a case of proving he deserves a spot on the Rebels roster next season. De Wit is relishing the
NBA FINALS The teams were already scheduled to work out Friday and Saturday at the Spurs’ training facility, and Spurs officials announced just before practice began that the air conditioning system was “fully operational.” Commissioner Adam Silver said a breaker about the size of a car battery failed and workers couldn’t replace it because they didn’t know what effect that would have on the rest of the power to arena. Silver said workers from the facility and league, along with an outside expert, checked it out and are confident everything is repaired and will be fine for Game 2 on Sunday night. And even if it isn’t, the Spurs would probably handle it. They have developed a mental toughness, the kind it will take to bounce back from last year’s gutwrenching NBA Finals loss to the Heat and get it done this year. “Being a champion is not easy,” Green said. “It’s not going to come easy.” So no, the Spurs won’t be rattled by something like the conditions. The two-time defending champion Heat will have to do that themselves. “Anybody can be rattled, but this challenge. “There are high expectations for me this year and I’m ready to exceed those expectations by any means,” he said. ● Scoring for Team White in Friday’s scrimmage were Tyler Kirkup, a 16-year-old forward from Virden, Man., and 15-year-old forwards Austin Pratt of Lakeville, Minn., and Akash Bains of Delta, B.C. The Rebels prospects camp runs from 3:45 to 5:45 p.m. today and concludes with a 9 to 11 a.m. session Sunday. firstname.lastname@example.org
NHL: Not an easy style to play For the Kings, it’s stay the course. That means playing with discipline and putting their bodies on the line for the 105th time since the start of the regular season. It is to their credit that they can continue to play their game. “Our style is not easy to play for 82 games every night,” acknowledged captain Dustin Brown when asked about the team’s scoring lapses during the regular season. “Sometimes we get into a funk and everyone focuses on our goal-scoring. “There was a stretch of games (during the regular season) where we couldn’t score but we were finding ways to win games because we played the right way on the other side of the puck. I think that’s where a lot of our success comes from, is really the defensive side of the puck.” Los Angeles ranked 26th in the
team is more difficult to rattle than others,” Heat forward Chris Bosh said. “They have great poise, they’re always a step ahead a little bit.” They were way ahead down the stretch, particularly after the demoralized Heat realized LeBron James — sidelined with cramps — had been lost for good with about 4 minutes remaining. And, as is often the case for the Spurs, this game was won just as much with their minds. “I feel part of our downfall in that game was mental and physical fatigue down the stretch. You know, rotations and things that we normally do wasn’t done last night,” Heat guard Dwyane Wade said. “It wasn’t from not having the will or the want to do it.” The Spurs never lose that. Even after their unforgettable Game 6 defeat last season, when they blew a fivepoint lead in the final half-minute of regulation with a chance to win the title, they came back two nights later and pushed the Heat into the finals minutes of Game 7. And rather than change things up after that loss, even with Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili both on the wrong side of 35, the Spurs brought back all five starters and 12 players overall, rather than try to make fixes some thought might be needed to stay atop the Western Conference.
league during the regular season with 2.42 goals a game. It helped that the Kings were first in goals-against average at 2.05. In the playoffs, they lead with 3.46 goals a game. They are in the middle of the playoff pack with 2.82 goals against. Asked how they have managed to add a gear in the post-season, Brown said champions find a way. “This time of year, good teams find that extra,” he said. The Kings clearly take pride in the toll that their game takes on opponents. “When teams play against us and say that ’Man, these guys compete, they play hard. They battle for every puck. And yeah, to win four out of seven against these guys is going to take a lot,”’ said defenceman Willie Mitchell. “If other teams are saying that, or people from the outside are kind of giving us that label, it means that we’re doing a lot of things here and we’ll continue to do that.” On Saturday, it’s the Rangers time to dig deep. “We have to expect they’re going to be a lot better,” said New York forward Brad Richards. “We have to be better or you’re going to be down 2-0 ... It’s this time of year. You get one crack at it. You got to raise it. There’s no other option.” Added Girardi: “We know in the room here that we have what it takes to get the job done.” “We’re going to be ready (Saturday),” said Vigneault. A good performance and the Rangers go home happy. “It would be really nice to have (the series) 1-1 leaving L.A.,” said forward
catch the ball as it was going toward the runner and stay away from the running lane that they now have to give and still tag him out. So that was a pretty good play.” Second baseman Brett Lawrie followed it up with a fine play on Yadier Molina’s grounder to end the inning. “That is just huge momentum and puts you back into your groove and kind of lets you know your guys are behind you.” Stroman said. “Right out of the gate he struggled a little bit but then he started using all his pitches,” manager John Gibbons said. “He was primarily pumping the fastballs in there and when he started using his breaking ball, his change-up a little bit, it made all the difference in the world.” St. Louis manager Mike Matheny acknowledged that Stroman kept the Cardinals hitters on their heels. “He kept us off balance,” said Mike Matheny. “He had good life on his fastball. We saw a lot of swings and misses, probably more swings and misses than what we saw on any kind of video we had on him, with his breaking ball. I thought his breaking ball was more of a weapon today than what we’d seen in the past.” The Blue Jays (38-24) left the bases loaded in the bottom of the first and stranded two in the second. But they tied it 1-1 in the third when Bautista led off with a homer, a high drive to left on a 2-1 fastball. Lawrie lined his 11th homer of the season to centre on a 2-1 fastball with two out in the fifth to give the Blue Jays a 2-1 lead. Bautista hit into a triple play in the sixth inning on a liner to second baseman Descalso. The Blue Jays loaded the bases against right-handed reliever Seth Maness with singles from Anthony Gose and Jose Reyes and Carpenter’s error on a grounder to third by Melky Cabrera. Bautista lined a 2-0 sinker to Descalso who threw to shortstop Jhonny Peralta who caught Reyes off second. Peralta then threw to Craig who stepped on first before Cabrera could return to the base. “I did everything I could,” Bautista said. “I laid off two bad pitches, swung at the one in the zone, hit it hard and it went right at somebody.”
Flames GM Treliving brings Conroy, Pascall on board CALGARY — Brad Treliving’s first major move as new Calgary Flames general manager was to beef up the front office. He named former Flame forward Craig Conroy and former Hockey Canada executive Brad Pascall as his new assistant general managers Friday. Conroy and Pascall join Mike Holditch, who has held that title since 2010. “Having depth, having manpower, allows us to see more and do more,” Treliving said at Scotiabank Saddledome. “Everything we do here when we look at adding staff and we look at adding people, this is all about building and this is about winning. “To me, you need to build your foundation off the ice before you can ever think of having success on the ice.” Treliving, 44, was revealed as the Flames new GM on April 28. The Flames were grooming Conroy for the managerial ranks before Treliving’s arrival. Conroy went to work immediately as a special assistant to former GM Jay Feaster after retiring in 2011. Conroy’s apprenticeship accelerated in December when president of hockey operations Brian Burke fired Feaster. Conroy had more responsibilities in the four months Burke searched for a replacement. Carl Hagelin.
FOOTBALL: Veteran QB to start In Stearn’s absence, veteran Josh Achtemichuk will start at quarterback versus the Wolfpack, with Brown aiming to work in two rookies at various points of the game. The Buccaneers dropped a 26-12 decision to the host Stars in their lone preseason game last weekend, a setback that didn’t bother Brown. “We went up there with a very basic package and wanted to see what the young guys could do,” he said. “The vets didn’t play very much. We let the young kids play and get some experience at what it’s like to play at this level. “For the kids coming out of high school, playing against men was definitely a big change. We wanted to give them that full experience before they go against a powerhouse like the Wolfpack.” Coming off last year’s regular-season success, the Bucs are looking to go all the way this season. “Nobody is talking about anything other that winning it all,” said Brown. “We don’t want to be cocky and we’re not going to look past any team, but our expectations are that we win every game. That’s why we put on the pads and go out onto the field. “We want to host the national championship game here in Lacombe.” email@example.com

Crane shoots 65 at St. Jude WEATHER SUSPENDS SECOND ROUND BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Ben Crane’s back is OK, and his putter couldn’t be working much better. The combination helped him shoot a 5-under 65 on Friday to open a sixstroke lead in the St. Jude Classic before heavy rain delayed play twice and forced the suspension of play for the day. Crane birdied his final hole Thursday night for a 63 and rolled in a 44-footer for birdie to start the second round Friday morning. He had a 12-under 128 total at TPC Southwind, matching the winning score in relation to par last year. “I certainly didn’t see this coming,” Crane said. “But you know when you’re putting well, I started to feel like I was a little more in control of my ball, just felt like I was tightening my draws and fades a little bit. I had access to some
PGA holes I haven’t this year and so gosh, it’s been an incredible two days.” Crane has spent the past six months changing his swing to protect his back. A four-time PGA Tour winner, Crane’s last win came in 2011 at the McGladrey Classic and his best finish this year was a tie for ninth in the Humana Challenge in January. But he was in such pain he had a therapist with him for treatment during the round. “It’s been a really, really hard year, racking my brain what’s going on, what’s going wrong and have I changed that much,” Crane said. “You start wondering, ’Am I going to get it back.’ So this is super encouraging. My wife said last night, ’looks like you still got it.’ Because you wonder. But anyway, it’s been a fun start.” Carl Pettersson and Jason Bohn were tied for second at 6 under. Pettersson had one hole left, and Bohn had two to play. Davis Love III (70) and Billy Horschel (68) were in at 5 under. Phil Mickelson and Retief Goosen
were unable to start the second round. Mickelson, winless in his last 19 events since the British Open, opened with a 67 on Thursday, and Goosen had a 66. Friday got off to a slow start with 60 players needing to wrap up the first round with the second started 40 minutes later. Lightning delayed play at 1:03 for 59 minutes before play resumed for 13 minutes. Mickelson had just gotten to the tee when the horn blew again. Fans were sent home before a severe thunderstorm drenched the course, filling bunkers, fairways and cart paths with water. Finally, play for the day was suspended just before 5 p.m. Players are due back at 7 a.m. so they can make the cut for the third round. Love was glad to be done before the weather moved in even at 5 under, and he doubts Crane will run out to 24 under. This course where John Cook won at 26 under in 1996 was redesigned to a par of 70 after 2004. “So he’s off to a great start and we’ll have to run him down,” Love said about Crane. “He’s a great putter, and these greens are perfect, so he’s got
the advantage on us right now, but just hang in there.” Crane had perfect timing for most of his rounds. He played most of the first round after the lengthy delay Thursday afternoon, which left nearly perfect scoring conditions with little wind and soft greens. He was in the first group off No. 1 starting the second round, and he birdied rolling in a putt with a break of more than 4 feet for the first of 24 putts. He followed up his opening birdie by sinking a 22-footer for birdie on No. 7. He hit his approach from 147 yards out to 3 feet for birdie on No. 9 to reach 10 under through 27 holes. He sunk a 14-footer on the par-3 11th with the island green before rolling in a 9-footer for birdie on No. 13. His 8-foot birdie on the par-5 16th put him at 13 under. But Crane hit into a bunker on No. 18 and missed a 7-footer to save par on way to his first bogey in two rounds. “How do I keep this going?” Well, certainly just keep doing what I’m doing, and hopefully the same game shows up, and obviously continuing to putt well helps your score,“ Crane said. ”I think that’s the key.
Nadal, Djokovic to meet in final BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PARIS — Rafael Nadal is going for No. 9 at the French Open, and the only man that can stop him is Novak Djokovic. Nadal is already a record eight-time champion with a lifetime 65-1 record at Roland Garros. One more victory on the red clay will make him the first man to win five in a row and give him his 14th Grand Slam title — tied in second place with Pete Sampras. The top-seeded Spaniard reached the final by beating Wimbledon champion Andy Murray 6-3, 6-2, 6-1 Friday on Court Philippe Chatrier, the stadium Nadal calls his favourite place to play. Djokovic defeated Ernests Gulbis 6-3, 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 in the first semifinal. Nadal has beaten Djokovic at the French Open in all five of their meetings, starting with a quarterfinal victory in 2006. They also met in the semifinals in 2007, ’08 and ’13, and in the final in 2012. “(It’s) nothing new for him to be in the final. He has the motivation to win Roland Garros for the first time for sure,” Nadal said of Djokovic. “But at the same time, he has the pressure to win for the first time. I have the pressure that I want to win and the motivation that I want to win the ninth.” The second-seeded Djokovic, however, has beaten Nadal the last four times they have played, including on clay in the final in Rome last month. “I’m going to try to be aggressive, because that is the only way I can win against him,” Djokovic said. “I know that, of course, this is the court he’s most dominant on. He has only lost one time in his career. This is where he plays his best.” The winner on Sunday will also be ranked No. 1 on Monday. Nadal is currently at the top, but needs to extend his French Open winning streak to 35 matches to stay there. He certainly played like the No. 1 on Friday. Nadal jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first set, then broke early again in the second and third sets. The Spaniard had six break points in the entire match, and converted each one.

Shanshan Feng watches her shot from the 4th tee in round 2 of the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic golf tournament Friday, in Waterloo, Ontario.
Park, Feng tied after two rounds at Manulife Classic BY THE CANADIAN PRESS WATERLOO, Ont. — China’s ShanShan Feng always concentrates while on the golf course. That focus meant she didn’t even realized she’d shot a round-best 6-under par 65 on Friday at the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic at Grey Silo Golf Course in to tie Hee Young Park for the tournament lead. “I have a habit that I don’t really look at the scoreboard during the play, so until you tell me, I don’t really know that I’m leading,” said Feng. “Today the wind was not as strong so I’m pretty sure the girls had better scores today. “I heard the weekend’s supposed to be nice, so we have to go for many, many birdies.” Park fired a second round score of 5-under par 66, a two-day total of 11 under, to maintain her joint lead at the event. Park was tied with Michelle Wie after the first round at 6-under 65 and she continued to shoot well, putting together her second bogey-free round. Feng also had a clean round, with six birdies for a 65 on the day. Park said she used the same approach as the first round, despite the
lack of wind on Day 2. “I still hit a lot of greens and my goal was try to leave uphill putts. That worked well today,” said Park, the defending Manulife Financial LPGA Classic champion. “I think that makes me more comfortable today.” Park said even though she has the lead after two rounds, she was reluctant to get too confident. “I think it’s still too far away to say something,” she said. “I’m not going to think about later or not, just keep on doing my same playing.” Even though her scorecard was flawless, Feng said she did leave some shots on the course. With three finishes in the top 10 this season, Feng is hungry for her first win and believes she is in a good position to get it. “My goal this year is to win three tournaments on the LPGA and now I’m zero. If I win here, I get one, that’s one down and two more to go,” she said. Still in the hunt is first round coleader Wie, though she couldn’t keep pace with Park and Feng, firing a 67 to sit alone in third at 10 under. “I was a little bit slow today and just didn’t get the ball close to the hole on my second shot,” said Wie, who added that she had to grind her way through the day. “I still can’t complain. I’m still
in contention.” The biggest climber of the day was Anna Nordqvist, who shot a 64 to jump into fourth place at 9 under, leapfrogging over LPGA rookie Xi Yu Lin, who shot 67 for the second straight day to head into the weekend at 8 under. “I got off to a really good start and I hit it good all day. I think I hit all fairways and all greens, so that makes it a little bit easier,” Nordqvist said. “I’m a little bit disappointed with the last couple holes, because I hit a lot of good putts that didn’t go in. Overall, I’m happy and it was a good round.” The leaderboard is tight after Nordqvist, as the South Korean trio of Inbee Park, So Yeon Ryu and Na Yeon Choi, along with Spain’s Belen Mozo, are tied for sixth at 7 under. Park had a 66 on the day, while the other three shot 67. Six players are tied for 10th while five Canadian made the cut of 1-over 72 to advance to the weekend. Jennifer Kirby, from Paris, Ont., and Langley, B.C.’s Sue Kim both shot 70 on Friday, and Brooke Henderson of Smiths Falls, Ont., came in at 71 to finish at 1 under after two rounds. Hamilton’s Alena Sharp also snuck into the weekend by finishing off at even par after shooting 2 under.
Penguins sack Bylsma, hire Rutherford as GM BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PITTSBURGH — Jim Rutherford doesn’t believe the Pittsburgh Penguins need to undergo a massive overhaul to regain their spot among the NHL’s elite. One thing is for certain: Dan Bylsma won’t be part of the process. The Penguins fired the franchise’s all-time winningest coach on Friday while hiring Rutherford away from the Carolina Hurricanes to replace Ray Shero as general manager. Rutherford’s first decision was to end the three weeks of limbo for Bylsma, whose star-laden teams had fallen well short of the Stanley Cup since winning it all in 2009. “What ownership wants here is a complete change in direction, one with the GM and one with the coach,” Rutherford said. Bylsma won 252 games behind the bench and was the Jack Adams Award winner in 2012 as the NHL’s Coach of the Year but failed to produce a bookend to the championship he captured
with stars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin in 2009. The Penguins were just 4-5 in playoff series since raising the 2009 Cup, with each loss coming to a lower-seeded team. Pittsburgh’s latest defeat came last month when the Penguins fell to the New York Rangers in seven games in the Eastern Conference semifinals. Rutherford met with Bylsma on Friday morning as part of an organizationwide shake-up. In addition to dismissing Bylsma, the Penguins promoted Jason Botterill to associate general manager, named Bill Guerin and Tom Fitzgerald assistant general managers. The 65-year-old Rutherford takes over for Shero, who was fired on May 16. The new gig is a homecoming for the former goaltender. Rutherford played for the Penguins in the 1970s before spending 20 years with the franchise that began as the Hartford Whalers, moved to North Carolina in 1997 and won the Stanley Cup in 2006. The Hurricanes struggled maintaining that success, missing the post-season each of the last five years.

RACING Schumacher’s legacy still felt in Montreal
Erik Jones gets high school diploma and then runs NASCAR Truck race FORT WORTH, Texas — Erik Jones walked across the stage wearing a cap and gown to receive his high school diploma. He then got into a NASCAR truck owned by Kyle Busch and went racing. On the night of his high school graduation ceremony in Swartz Creek, Michigan, the 18-year-old Jones was instead at Texas Motor Speedway on Friday night making his first national-level start on a 1 ½-mile oval. “To graduate at a race track, I don’t know that I would have had it any other way,” said Jones, who finished 11th. Before driver introductions, “Pomp and Circumstance” played while Jones went across the stage. He then received his actual diploma from TMS President Eddie Gossage, who also donned cap and gown and presented the young driver with another diploma signifying his graduation to 1 ½-mile tracks. Last November in Phoenix, Jones became the youngest winner in truck series history, winning at 17 years, 4 months on the mile track. The race at Texas came a week after his 18th birthday, making him eligible to race on the bigger tracks. “Ever since about first grades, all he’s wanted to do is race,” said Dave Jones, the driver’s father. “To get to this point and have the two, graduate and get is diploma at a race track, is beyond his wildest dreams. He would have quit school in the first grade to go racing if that had been an option.”
BY KELSEY PATTERSON THE CANADIAN PRESS MONTREAL — Racing legend Michael Schumacher left a permanent mark on Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. Schumacher is a major figure in the Canadian Grand Prix’s history, winning the race a record seven times between 1994 and 2004. But there was little talk of the Formula One racing phenom on Montreal’s Ile Sainte-Helene ahead of this weekend’s big event. The former F1 champion has been in a medically-induced coma since suffering a head injury in a skiing accident on Dec. 29, 2013. The incident occurred in an off-piste area of the French Alp resort where he owns a chalet. In April, Schumi’s family claimed the most successful racer in Formula One history was showing encouraging signs after his two surgeries — that he was momentarily awake and conscious. But there have since been no updates from his hospital in Grenoble, France. Canadian race driver Jacques Villeneuve, winner of the 1997 Formula One season, was at a loss for words when asked about Schumacher after the day’s second practice session on Friday afternoon. “What can you think or say? We don’t know what’s really happening,” said Villeneuve outside the team paddocks, on the track named after his father. “What is the truth? All that we know is that it’s probably really hard for his family, for his kids and his wife. That’s what matters. Apart from that, what can you say?” The Iberville, Que., native, who finished 14th in last month’s Indianapolis 500, has a storied history with Schumacher on the F1 racetrack. The German driver infamously attempted to run Villeneuve off the Jerez Circuit in the 47th lap of the 1997 Spanish Grand Prix, the last race of the season. With Villeneuve

CANADIAN GRAND PRIX challenging Schumacher’s lead in both the race and the overall championship standings, the Ferrari superstar rammed into Villeneuve in a bid to take them both out of the race. The manoeuvre failed, and Schumacher was instead thrown off the course. Villeneuve finished third to leapfrog Ferrari in the standings and capture his lone world championship for Williams-Renault. As a result of the incident, Schumacher was disqualified from that year’s championship and stripped of every point. He later called the clash the biggest regret of his career.
“It’s really a tough situation,” said Villeneuve, who incidentally suffered a concussion in a skiing accident in the French Alps in 1997, roughly 200 kilometres from the spot of Schumacher’s injury. “When someone spends all his life taking risks, living on the edge, and then a freak accident like this ... That means that you can’t play with destiny, that’s all.” Earlier this week, former F1 doctor Gary Hartstein suggested Schumacher would likely never recover from his injury. “I’m quite afraid we will never have any good news about Michael,” wrote Hartstein on Sunday. “I can conceive of no possible reason that Michael’s entourage a would not tell his fans if significantly good things have happened.”
IndyCar will not use double-file restarts on oval race tracks FORT WORTH, Texas — IndyCar will not use double-file restarts the rest of the season. The decision to modify the restarts comes on the eve of Saturday night’s race at Texas Motor Speedway, the first race double-file restarts were scheduled to be used this season. IndyCar had planned to use double-file restarts at all oval tracks except Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The series uses single-file restarts on road and street courses. IndyCar president of competition and operations Derrick Walker says dropping doublefile restarts eliminates a potential advantage to the drivers in the desirable lane during the re-start. Walker says IndyCar also will place drivers in the same running order they were prior to the caution.

LONG POND, Pa. — Denny Hamlin won the pole the first time he ever raced at Pocono Raceway. Eight years later, Hamlin still had the speed in the No. 11 Toyota to take the top spot at the triangle track. Hamlin turned a track record-lap of 181.415 mph Friday to win the NASCAR Sprint Cup pole, a throwback to the times he dominated qualifying at one of his best tracks. Hamlin is a fourtime winner at Pocono, matching his Martinsville mark for most career wins at a track. He swept two Pocono races on its former rugged surface from the pole in 2006. He also won races on the 2 ½-mile track in 2009 and 2010.

Lukaszuk would review Michener closure BY SUSAN ZIELINSKI ADVOCATE STAFF Tory leadership candidate Thomas Lukaszuk says he would “most definitely” keep Michener Centre open pending a review to explore its future. “I would not make a hasty decision to close it. I would want to first satisfy myself whether this perchance isn’t a diamond in the rough that could actually be reprofiled into something even bigger and better,” said Lukaszuk who visited Michener Centre on Thursday afternoon.
Lukaszuk said he walked through several buildings, met with residents and staff, and had a long talk with family members. “The first thing you notice is the sense of community within the facility. The bond among the residents despite their level of functioning and cognition is undeniable, and their familiarity with the surroundings and the sense of belonging there is also undeniable,” he said about residents he saw navigate around corners without even looking because they’ve lived there for 40-some years.
Last spring the province announced that older buildings on Michener’s north and south sides would close forcing the relocation of 120 of Michener’s most severely developmentally disabled residents. The decision came as a shock to families who had long been promised that residents could live out their lives at Michener. “I know from my background that persons with these kinds of disorders are very much dependent upon routine and they are definitely very accustomed to those surroundings,” said Lukaszuk. He last visited Michener
about 15 years ago when he served as a citizen on the Social Care Facilities Review Committee that inspected facilities to report to government on residents’ care. He said he understands the economic argument to close the buildings, but not everything in life can be converted into dollars. A variety of stakeholders should sit down and discuss whether Michener could be even more than it is right now to assist those with disabilities, mental health issues, and others, he said. If the outcome of a review still pointed to
2019 Winter Games will be pricey endeavour
closure, residents should remain by way of attrition, up to a reasonable point, he said. NDP health critic Dave Eggen has called for the province to push the pause button on Michener’s closure and was waiting to hear the position of all three PC leadership candidates. “There are all kinds of compromises and ways we can resolve this. It was always this adversarial, secretive attitude that the government brought to Michener that just made everything worse,” Eggen said. email@example.com
WORK OF ART
BY CRYSTAL RHYNO ADVOCATE STAFF Hosting the 2019 Canada Winter Games will not come cheap. Red Deer city council will consider adding $26 million to the 2015 Capital Budget to build and upgrade facilities needed to host the national competition at its regular meeting on Monday. Council will also debate a contingency plan for the construction of an Olympic-sized pool and squash courts to the tune of $22.9 million if the Red Deer College’s planned Health and Wellness complex does not ahead. The requests come to council from Red Deer’s 2019 Canada Winter Games Bid Committee as part of the bid submission process to the Canada Games Council. Council must approve the submission and proposed budgets before they submitted to Canada Games Council at the end of the month. Mayor Tara Veer said hosting the Games gives the city the opportunity to obtain funds from the federal and provincial governments. She said the Games will serve as a catalyst to implement many city plans that would otherwise not be fulfilled because of budget constraints. The provincial and federal governments are expected to contribute $8.1 million each on the operating side and another $3 million on the capital side. Municipalities must ink a minimum of $3 million in their capital budgets for the Games. Red Deer or Lethbridge will get the hosting nod in September. Other council highlights: ● A new McDonald’s Restaurant with a dual drive through on 16 Conway Street in Clearview Market will be considered. Council will debate the construction of the restaurant as a discretionary use. ● All things green will be on the table as the Environmental Advisory Committee gives its annual report to council. ● A public hearing on omnibus amendments to incorporate bylaw changes, improvements and upgrades to streamline the land-use bylaw process will begin at 6 p.m. One such amendment is permitting medical marijuana facilities in heavy industrial areas in the city’s bylaw. firstname.lastname@example.org
Lacombe Composite High School wins Emerald Award BY MYLES FISH ADVOCATE STAFF A group of Lacombe high schoolers have developed green thumbs. Now, they have a green gem. The EcoVision club at Lacombe Composite High School won an Emerald Award on Thursday night at a ceremony in Calgary, beating out two other finalists in the education: school or classroom category. The awards have been handed out in Alberta for the last 23 years in recognition of environmental sustainability initiatives. The extra-curricular club of about a dozen students has been active at the school for a number of years, completing projects that make the school greener. Solar panels have been installed on the school’s roof, herbs are now grown inside the building, and a student-operated geodesic greenhouse surrounded by fruit trees is present on school grounds. The club was a finalist for an Emerald Award in 2011 and 2012, and has earned many other plaudits in recent years. The Emerald Awards are, said teacher advisor Steven Schultz, “the most prestigious environmental awards in Alberta.” EcoVision projects, said Schultz, are designed to benefit the environment, enhance students’ education, and encourage community collaboration. There are plans to engage both younger students and senior citizens in the school projects, he said. One of the group’s major initiatives is to establish an aquaponics apparatus in the greenhouse that will see hundreds of tilapia fish and vegetables grown. Those fish and vegetables, along with a variety of herbs, would then be used in the school’s cafeteria. Members of the group have had the chance to attend environmental conferences and in March some went on an ecotourism trip to Costa Rica. email@example.com

Finn McKinnon, 5, and his sister Maya, 2, of Red Deer contribute to a large painting project at the Central Alberta Children’s Festival on Friday. The 8th Annual Festival runs again today from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Recreation Park across from the Arena in Red Deer. The event this year features main stage performances through the day, bouncy castles, face painting, dancing, several hands-on activities to take in and much more.
BRIEF Spring was normal for Central Alberta May was a little wetter and a little colder than normal but otherwise a fairly typical Central Alberta spring, says Environment Canada. The average high was 15.2C and the average low 2.6C. The normal average high is 16.9C with a low of 2.8C. Temperatures soared to 26C on May 23, which was the high for the month. But that was a long way off record highs, which are in the 30s for that time of year, said forecaster Greg Pearce. Likewise, lows were nowhere near records with the coldest day on May 7 getting down to -6.3C. A little more precipitation, both snow and rain fell than normal. About 61 mm of rain and 11.4 cm of snow were recorded for the month against normals of 51 mm of rain and five cm of snow. Overall, there was nothing too remarkable about the month. “It was well within the variability you can expect in May,” said Pearce. June also looks fairly typical for the first couple of weeks with temperatures seesawing above normal to below normal. “It just going to be up and down here for the next couple or three days. Nothing truly outstanding I don’t think. It will probably all average out to pretty normal by the time all is said and done, at least for the first couple of weeks anyway. “Beyond that it’s a little harder to tell.”

RCMP investigating robbery In Highland Green Red Deer RCMP are investigating a robbery after thieves stole a limited edition Robert Bateman print, cash and electronics from a home in Highland Green in Red Deer between May 16 to 19. Police say a witness saw a man and woman approach the house several times within a short period of time. The suspects drove a small, older model truck that was a dark, dull blue colour and had equipment in the truck box. The residents were not home at the time. The robbers stole electronics, cash and a large art print of a grizzly bear and two cubs. The art is a limited edition print, #331, and has been signed by the artist, Robert Bateman. The number on the print makes it uniquely identifiable as stolen property. The female suspect is described as Caucasian, 25 to 35 years of age, between 1.5 m (5 feet) and 1.64 m (5 feet 4 inches) tall with brown hair tied back in a ponytail looped over on itself. She has an average build and was wearing jeans and a casual shirt with a small-brimmed hat. The male suspect is described as short and dark with very curly hair. He was thin with a non-athletic build. He was wearing jeans and a t-shirt. The man was seen from behind so his ethnicity is unknown.

Churches are in-between places BY JON MEACHAM ADVOCATE NEWS SERVICES The following is from a sermon delivered to Trinity Church Wall Street on the Feast of the Ascension, 2014. We are here together on this springtime evening in obedience to commands both secular and sacred. First, the secular: after the Glorious Revolution of 1688 brought an end to the strife of the English Civil War by placing William and Mary at the head of the British state, King William issued ecclesiastical orders to the royal governor of New York. “You shall take care that God Almighty be devoutly and duly served throughout your Government,” the King wrote. “The Book of Common Prayer as it is now established, read each Sunday and Holyday, and the blessed Sacrament administered according to the rites of the Church of England . . . .” And this day is such a “Holyday,” the Feast of the Ascension of our Lord. The sacred commandment that brings us into one another’s company is what must be the single most-followed directive in human history: the injunction, first uttered in the upper room on the night before the crucifixion, to take bread and to take wine and to do so in re-
membrance of him. We stand in this particular place, keeping the feast and proclaiming the word, because in 1692 the royal governor of New York bought land on Wall Street from the Lutherans — for 20 pounds. On a springtime Monday in May 1697, King William granted the charter of Trinity Church to become the parish of the city of New York. Not long afterward the vestry sent a report to the Archbishop of Canterbury. “The situation of our church is very pleasant,” the vestry wrote, “between two rivers on eminent ground.” Churches are in fact in-between places — they are at once temporal and eternal, tangible and intangible, secular in setting yet sacred in mission. Perhaps no parish in the Anglican Communion is a more vivid example of the contrasts between the hectic pace of this world and the holy promise of the next than Trinity, a critical element, a telling tableau. It is a temple of the Christian God set in the midst of Wall Street, a holy place in the world of money and appetite. That the parish stands so close by the Stock Exchange, Federal Hall, and Ground Zero gives us a tactile manifestation of the competing claims the world puts on humanity. There is the pull of religion, of commerce, of politics, and of
terror. Contradiction, conflict, and tension are thus permanent features of Trinity’s spiritual geography. And the Ascension is, like Trinity and like the Christian story itself, also bound up in contradiction, conflict, and tension. With the Ascension, as with so many of the miracles of Jesus, we find ourselves torn between legend and fact, between myth and reality. When speaking of the Resurrection or of the Ascension, the most rational, the most modern thing to do is to the cast the stories as metaphoric. It is an ancient critical reaction to the more spectacularly irrational elements of the biblical experience: Did Moses really part the Red Sea with Cecil B. DeMille-like sweep? And with Jesus, the temptation to comb through the gospel accounts in search of rational moments amid the miraculous milestones is an exercise that fascinated no less a man than Thomas Jefferson. History and theology are not as easily distinguished from one another as we might at first think. History is what happened in time and space. Theology is what a people think history means. History is horizontal, theology vertical, and their intersection is the motive force behind
our religious, national, and personal imaginations. Because of evidence from the past, we have, in other words, faith in the proposition that there is an unseen yet undeniably real truth at work in the world. So it was with the Passion, the Resurrection, and the Ascension two millennia ago. The Ascension essentially closes the drama that began in what we call Holy Week. And the main point I would like to make is that the Ascension stories we have heard do not require you to believe that a group of largely marginalized first-century Jews had surprising access to a Star Trek-like transporter system. We will never work out the contradictions evident in this neighborhood — the temples of love astride the temples of money near a mass grave in the midst of busy life. But in the end — in the very end — it is a wholly reasonable thing to trust in the cross and in its complexities as the means by which we can endure so that we might prevail. That, perhaps, is the ultimate ascension: one away from chaos and toward order, away from appetite and toward love, away from hate and toward love. Jon Meacham is the author, most recently, of Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power.

PLENTY TO SEE AND DO IN CENTRAL ALBERTA THIS SUMMER File Photo by JEFF STOKOE/Advocate staff
Vivian Schlyter, 6, of Red Deer looks into the jaws of a cow skull held Central Alberta Children’s Festival volunteer Robert Swainson at the Red Deer College Summer Science Camp table at last year’s Children’s Festival. The Central Alberta Children’s Festival kicks off this weekend at Rotary Recreation Park. BY LANA MICHELIN ADVOCATE STAFF ‘Too much to do and too little time’ about summarizes summer weekends in Central Alberta. When there isn’t a farmer’s market going on somewhere, there’s probably an outdoor festival or two to attend. And these just might introduce you to some great new music, a new culture, some thrilling entertainment, good food, imaginative local artists, or even a slice of Alberta’s rich heritage. This summer brings back an assortment of favourite festivals that draw big crowds including Red Deer’s Centrefest and Westerner Days Fair and Sylvan Lake’s Jazz At the Lake. While two other events that have been around a few years are no-gos this summer — Red Deer’s Central Music Festival and Sylvan Lake’s Shake on the Lake — a couple of new festivals have cropped up to book-end the warm months. Heavy rock lovers can enjoy One Bad Son and a lineup of other bands at the Tail Creek Mud and Music Festival near Alix later this month, while country music fans will be entertained by Ridley Bent, Tim Hus and other artists at the Boomtown Music Festival at the Ol’ MacDonalds Resort north of Stettler early in September.

CTV unveils broad fall television line-up BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — CTV unveiled a varied fall line-up Thursday, betting that a mix of family comedies, superhero series and gritty dramas will capture the broadest audience of Canadians. “That’s why you call it broadcast, instead of narrowcast,” Phil King, president of CTV, Sports and Entertainment, said in an interview. “I really believe to be a successful broadcast network, and not just a specialty channel, you can’t be niche. You have to be wide enough to have a little something for everyone.” Bell Media, which runs CTV, appeared to be taking aim at its competitors with its announcement Thursday. Rogers Media has built its schedule around hockey, for which it paid a whopping $5.2 billion, while Shaw Media is targeting primarily women with its drama offerings. In contrast, CTV is banking on shows that it hopes will have mass appeal. Building on the success of Arrow and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the network has added four new superhero series: Ben McKenzie-led Gotham, Marvel’s Agent Carter, The Flash and Forever. “With so much programming going on nowadays, and all different channels, not just conventional, it’s hard to make noise,” said King. “When you look at a show like ’Gotham’ ... Who hasn’t heard of Batman?” But CTV has also had to grapple with scheduling changes on U.S. net-
works. CBS has moved The Amazing Race, long a ratings juggernaut for CTV on Sunday nights, to the tough time slot of Fridays at 8 p.m. Sundays are already among the most competitive nights on TV, with Sunday Night Football, a barrage of awards shows and cable dramas like Game of Thrones — but will become even tougher in the fall when Rogers-owned City starts airing NHL games. However, King was optimistic about CTV’s new Sunday night line-up, featuring fantasy series Once Upon A Time and ratings winner Resurrection, the later of which CTV snatched from City. “I can tell you, the thought process we have or the worry we have on Sunday night hockey is zero,” said King. “NHL Hockey, without the Maple Leafs playing every week, simply isn’t as big as people think. I know the Leafs aren’t going to play every Sunday.” CTV also nabbed the top new U.S. comedy of last season, The Millers, from Global. Starring Beau Bridges as a father who moves in with his son, played by Canadian Will Arnett, the show is expected to continue to be a ratings hit. Bridges, a two-time Golden Globe Award winner who also stars in drama Masters of Sex on Showtime, said in an interview that he wasn’t surprised by the popularity of The Millers. “I think because it’s a family show, there’s a lot to relate to for everybody. The Millers are like everybody else. We’re dealing with our own particular quirks and trying to get by,” he said. The new and similarly-titled The McCarthys, about a sports-obsessed Bos-

Actors Jimmy Dunn, left, and Tyler Ritter, right, pose for a photo to promote their new show The McCarthy sin Toronto on Thursday. ton Irish Catholic family, will round out CTV’s Thursday comedy block of Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory. “Having a whole CBS Thursday night comedy block intact hasn’t been done by anybody in a long time,” said King. “There’s enough dark TV. At the 8 o’clock hour, let’s try to be a little bit lighter in tone and more advertiserfriendly.” CTV’s new drama offerings include How to Get Away with Murder, the highly anticipated Shonda Rhimes series starring Academy Award nominee Viola Davis, and Ryan Phillippe murder mystery Secrets and Lies. Canadian shows Spun Out and Motive have both been renewed for another season — even though “Spun Out,” a public relations comedy starring Kids
in the Hall alumni Dave Foley, debuted to 1.2 million viewers before dropping to 600,000 within three weeks. King said the show has potential for a strong second season, praising its “fantastic cast, deep writing room and experienced producers” in a statement. CTV has also ordered a new twohour Masterchef Canada holiday special that will air this winter, as the cooking competition show continues to regularly draw more than 1 million viewers. Bell Media also runs specialty channels The Comedy Network, Bravo and E!. Elizabeth Hurley’s British monarchy comedy The Royals will join E!, while Angie Tribeca, a spoof of police procedurals starring Rashida Jones and created by Steve and Nancy Carell, was added to The Comedy Network’s line-up.
Anne Carson wins $65K Griffin Poetry prize BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — Toronto-born wordsmith Anne Carson picked up the $65,000 Griffin Poetry Prize on Thursday night for her collection Red Doc, the second time she has won the lucrative honour. “If my mom were alive today she would be so happy and my dad would shake hands with me,” said the writer, who teaches at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. The annual event gives out two $65,000 prizes — one to a Canadian and another to an international poet. California-based Brenda Hillman won the international award for Seasonal Works with Letters Anne Carson on Fire (Wesleyan University Press). Carson has a slew of other prizes to her name. She was twice a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award, received the 1996 Lannan Award and the 1997 Pushcart Prize, both for poetry; and was named a MacArthur Fellow in 2000. In 2001 she received the T.S. Eliot Prize for Poetry — the first woman to do so. Said the judges of Red Doc: “Words are rescued, morphed and slapped
awake. Speech hurtles from vulgar to sublime. Everything accelerates except when a break is introduced disguised as riff, list or song and the mead is served in golden cups.” The other Canadian finalists were Toronto’s Anne Michaels for Correspondences (McClelland & Stewart) and Sue Goyette for Ocean (Gaspereau Press). Toronto businessman Scott Griffin created the prize along with trustees including Margaret Atwood and Michael Ondaatje. The non-winning finalists each get $10,000. Judges Robert Bringhurst of Canada, C.D. Wright of the U.S. and Jo Shapcott of the U.K. chose this year’s finalists from 539 books submitted from 40 countries. The Griffin bash is a loose, informal affair. Guests including former governor-general Adrienne Clarkson and Irish writer Colm Toibin noshed on cured salmon salad and veal tenderloin medallions in a spring-themed room decorated with trees at the ceremony in the city’s Distillery District. Clarkson said the Griffin has become an important international prize. “It’s a beacon light for poets all over the world,” she said. “And the reason it is, is not only because it’s poetry but because of the passion with which it’s given — because it comes out of one man’s passion for poetry. Scott Griffin loves poetry and he support this prize, which is wonderful. So it has a personal, passionate, poetic feel to it. It’s great.
Added Toibin: “The Griffin prize is known all over the world now for doing things with GALAXY CINEMAS RED DEER flair, imagination and se357-37400 HWY 2, RED DEER COUNTY 403-348-2357 riousness.

The number of U.S. fathers home with their kids full-time is down, from a peak 2.2 million in 2010, the official end of the recession, to about 2 million in 2012, according to a report released Thursday by the Pew Research Center. The slight decrease in their ranks from 2010 to 2012 was driven chiefly by employment gains since the recession eased, the report said, defining stay-at-home fathers as those not employed for pay at all in the prior year and living with children 17 or younger. The largest share of athome dads, 35 per cent, said they were home due to illness or disability. Roughly 23 per cent said it was mainly because they couldn’t find a job, and 21 per cent said it was specifically to care for home or family, the researchers noted, relying on census and other government data. By contrast, 1.1 million men were at-home dads in 1989, the earliest year reliable government figures are available for the sector. Gretchen Livingston, a senior researcher who worked on the report, said fathers comprised 16 per cent of parents at home full time in 2012, up from 10 per cent in 1989. The 21 per cent who cited caring for home and children as the specific reason for being out of the for-pay work force was up from 5 per cent in 1989 and 18 per cent in
2007, the start of the recession, Livingston said. While unemployment is a factor overall, Livingston said Wednesday in a telephone interview from Washington, D.C., that the “continuing convergence of gender roles” between moms and dads is key. “It’s becoming more acceptable for dads to be caregivers, and it’s becoming more acceptable for moms to be responsible for breadwinning,” she said. But Livingston warned that affluent, highly educated dads at home to raise children remain a subset. “It’s important to note that a lot of these dads are actually not doing that well economically and they tend to have lower income levels, too,” she said.
And despite a greater acceptance of dads staying home to raise kids, other Pew research shows 51 per cent of the public believes kids are better off when the mother stays home, compared to 8 per cent that cited dads. Mike Brandfon, 48, of Chicago falls into the laid-off category. He lost his job at a mid-size public relations company in December 2009, at a period when he and his wife had been thinking about having kids. “I was looking for jobs but we just happened to get pregnant with twins at the right time, as far as me being able to stay home with them since I couldn’t find a job,” he said. After the girls were born in October 2010 and his spouse’s four-month

maternity leave ended, her marketing job allowed them to just make ends meet. “It was quite a shock, to say the least,” he said of remaining out of the for-pay work force. “You don’t think about it in that sense when you’re going through it. You just try to get through each day and each moment.” Brandfon joined a dads’ group for park outings with the kids and the occasional night out for a beer.

YANGON, Myanmar — Perched on a stool on a bustling sidewalk in Myanmar’s biggest city, an elderly gentleman pecks away on a clunky manual typewriter. It’s a will, Aung Myint says, barely looking up as his fingers rise high over the keys and hammer down with a steady sense of purpose. He points with his chin to the stack of papers he still needs to get through before he heads home, 30 or more, many of them legal papers hastily delivered by lawyers who work at the courthouse down the street. Reminders of a bygone era cling stubbornly and quaintly in Myanmar, a country that was in many ways frozen in time during a half-century of dictatorship and self-imposed isolation. Now, three years into the Southeast Asian country’s bumpy transition to democracy, smartphones and computer shops are common, but so are phone stands and typists. Even telegrams have not quite made their exit. Aung Myint says his work is steady enough, but a far cry from the days of military rule, when he spent most of his time typing up authors’ novels for submission to the now-defunct censorship board. He rarely broke for lunch back then, often working by candlelight well after shops were shuttered and businessmen had long gone home. How does the 67-year-old manage to keep going as his country belatedly joins the computer age? He says there are still those who feel a document lacks an authentic air unless it’s pulled from the roll of a manual typewriter. Plus, he adds, there are several benefits to typing. “You don’t need to waste time with printing,” Aung Myint said. “And if you make a mistake, you can just erase it and type over it. It’s easier.” Not far from the typist, Thin Thin Nu has a table on the sidewalk with five clunky, pushbutton phones. Such stands remain a common sight in Yangon, though less so than they were a few years ago. Thin Thin Nu said many people use her phones only because their mobile phone batteries have died.
But with a monastery and a school less than 100 metres (yards) away, she gets plenty of other business. Monks call their families in faraway villages. Impatient kids ring their moms to say they are waiting to be picked up. She’s also a line of communication for young lovers. “When girls are talking to their boyfriends, they lean in as close as they can to the tree next to the table, picking at the bark, or nervously twisting the iron chain around its trunk,” Thin Thin Nu says. “Other times they’ll fight, banging down the receiver wildly. I’ve even been asked to lie, to tell the voice on the other end of the line, ‘She is not here anymore,’ when the girl is sitting right across from me.” Thin Thin Nu makes only about $15 a day, less than half what she was making before the country of 60 million started opening up. But she thinks she can hang on a while longer. Most people in Yangon and the rest of Myanmar remain desperately poor, and her service, offered for 50 kyat (less than 5 cents) a minute, is still the best deal they can get. Poverty does not quite explain why government telegraph offices are still running.

25,800 added new jobs all part time FULL-TIME EMPLOYMENT FALLS BY 29,100 CANADIAN LABOUR MARKET
THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA — Canada’s labour market staged a modest comeback last month, but the good news was tempered by the fact all 25,800 net new jobs were part-time and many likely temporary as the first wave of students entered the summer job market. Despite the net increase in jobs, the official unemployment rate edged back to seven per cent after several months at 6.9, an unusual outcome caused by more Canadians entering the work force. But the real news in the key monthly report from Statistics Canada is that full-time employment fell by 29,100, the second big drop in two months. As well, since 48,600 young workers found employment, the assumption is that many were university students finding summer jobs — a welcome development on one level but no solace to the long-term unemployed in the country. In fact, employment among men aged 25 to 54 fell by 23,000. The weakness was also reflected in hours worked, up 1.1 per cent but not enough to reverse April’s 1.9 per cent fall-off — and the 1.4 per cent yearover-year gain in wages was the slow-
est in three years and below the inflation rate. “It was tough to find much positive other than the nice headline,” said Bank of Montreal economist Doug Porter. “It’s probably one of the starker cases of the headline telling one story and the details telling quite another,” he said. Markets weren’t fooled. The dollar weakened modestly on the news, particularly as it compared to a relatively stronger 217,000 job creation month in the United States. The Canadian numbers did little to alter the prevailing trend of an economy that, after churning out strong job gains in the first few years following the 2008-09 recession, has largely run out of steam in the one area most important to Canadians — the ability to create well-paying, permanent, fulltime jobs. The agency noted that over the last 12 months, only 86,000 net new jobs have been created — or a mere 0.5 per cent increase — with all the growth part-time.
In fact, over that period the number of Canadians who could be said to be employed full-time fell by almost 27,000, a startling figure given that the economy grew by about two per cent during those two months. Earlier this week, the Bank of Canada also noted that the economy had underperformed in the first quarter of 2014 and that the risk in the outlook had skewed slightly to the downside. Economists say the numbers are representative of an economy in transition. The days when housing and to a lesser extent retail spending could sustain growth have come to an end, yet the rotation to export-based manufacturing and business investment has yet to take hold. That’s why many are pointing to brighter prospects going forward, particularly if the U.S. economy continues to pick up steam. But don’t expect fireworks, said Diana Petramala, an economist with TD Bank. “U.S. economic growth is estimated to have picked up to above four per cent in the second quarter of this year, and Europe is emerging from reces-

sion. Alongside improving Canadian corporate profits, better global economic prospects should lead to moderate gains in Canadian employment, in the range of 10,000 to 15,000, through the rest of 2014,” she said. That is barely enough to keep up with population growth, however. If there was a bright element to the report, it was that employers added 66,200 workers in May, as 40,400 left the self-employed class. In terms of sectors, employment increased by 22,000 in education services and by about 20,000 in accommodation and food services. Agriculture jobs were also up 19,000. Among sectors that lost jobs, the natural resources industry declined by about 23,000 and there were about 21,000 fewer workers in finance, insurance, real estate and leasing. Manufacturing was also down by 12,200 and construction was largely flat. Regionally, the agency said the biggest draw of jobs came in resourcerich Alberta, which picked up 16,400 workers. Most other provinces showed little change in relationship to their population, except for Newfoundland and Labrador, which lost 4,100 jobs, all full-time.

Little change to Loonie after mixed jobs results BY THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO — The Canadian dollar closed little changed amid a weak employment report for May. The loonie edged down 0.01 of a cent to 91.49 cents US as job creation figures for Canada came in above expectations, up 25,800 for the month. But Statistics Canada said the gains were due to part-time positions, and the unemployment rate edged up to seven per cent from 6.9 per cent as more Canadians went looking for work in May. The number of full time jobs fell by 29,000. “Although today’s number was much improved, it still leaves the sixmonth trend running an anaemic 3,000, suggesting some potential for catch up given expectations of an economic acceleration in Q2,” said CIBC World Markets economist Nick Exarhos. The employment news out of the United States was much better. The Labor Department said the American economy cranked out 217,000 jobs, roughly in line with expectations. That’s down from 282,000 in April, which was revised slightly lower. Despite the gains, the unemployment rate

remained 6.3 per cent. In other economic news, German industrial production edged up by a smaller-than-expected 0.2 per cent in April compared with the previous month, even as factory orders in Europe’s biggest economy strengthened. The figure was below economists’ expectations of a rise by 0.3 per cent or more. Meanwhile, traders looked ahead to a raft of key Chinese data coming out next week including readings on inflation, trade and retail sales. Ahead of those reports, The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund are urging China to focus on controlling risks from rapidly rising debt due to its reliance on credit-fuelled growth. The comments add to warnings by private sector analysts that China’s run-up in debt, especially since the 2008 global crisis, could lead to financial problems and disrupt economic growth that already is slowing. Commodity markets were mixed in the wake of the jobs data with July crude in New York 18 cents higher to US$102.66 a barrel. August bullion declined 80 cents to US$1,252.50 an ounce. July copper fell four cents to US$3.05 a pound.

MARKETS CLOSE TORONTO — The Toronto stock market closed modestly higher Friday amid a solid U.S. employment report for May and weak Canadian jobs data. The S&P/TSX composite index was up 38.72 points to 14,838.9, weighed down by mining stocks as copper and gold prices lost ground. The Canadian dollar was slightly lower as job creation figures for Canada came in above expectations, up 25,800 for the month. But Statistics Canada said the gains were part-time and the unemployment rate edged up to seven per cent from 6.9 per cent as more Canadians went looking for work in May.

Quebec iron firm says mine railway feasibility study could stimulate investment MONTREAL — A Quebec iron ore exploration company says the provincial government’s financial support to study building a railway link in northern Quebec’s Labrador Trough region could stimulate investment and create new jobs. “At a time of uncertainty in investment markets regarding the outlook for iron ore, this decision will be seen as a defining point in the history of the mining industry in Quebec,” said Champion Iron chairman Michael O’Keeffe. Iron ore prices have slumped to two-year lows, prompting miners to delay projects. Analyst Jackie Przybylowski of Desjardins Capital Markets doesn’t believe there is as much demand for a multi-user rail line as the industry thought in the past couple of years. “Although a feasibility study is a good start, it certainly doesn’t guarantee that a rail line is going to get built,” she said. The Quebec government committed in Wednesday’s budget up to $20 million towards a feasibility study on the construction of a railway line connecting the iron ore deposits with the Port of Sept-Iles.
Funding for the study will be conducted with private partners. The new government said developing the mining potential of the region is a “cornerstone” of its relaunched Northern Quebec economic development plan. The study will estimate costs and determine the best railway option, including increasing capacity on existing lines and the building a new one. Canadian National Railway (TSX:CNR) put its own feasibility study on ice more than a year ago due to delays in mining projects because of low iron ore prices. The country’s largest railway had been working with several mining companies and the Caisse de depot pension fund on a study into a transportation line and terminal handling facility, which analysts had estimated could cost $5 billion. Spokesman Mark Hallman said that while CN’s project remains on hold, it is “available to co-operate” with the government. The Labrador Trough is among the world’s largest iron ore deposits, with annual production of some 50 million tonnes. Global miners including Arcelor Mittal and Rio Tinto have assets in the region.

Where rustic gets refined COLIN AND JUSTIN REVEAL THEIR LAKESIDE BUNKIE

COLIN & JUSTIN
tinctly rectilinear bunkie and talked us carefully through every stage of visualization and ultimately realization. In conjunction with Dan, our contractor, and of course the local township, every point of our ambitious journey was consigned to virtual paper. And then polished and perfected. That which made Canada Builds so perfect for us is the fact they construct their homes off site at their plant in Lindsay, Ontario. This concept worked well in our scenario as, simultaneously, we were undertaking a huge main cottage reno to include landscaping, internal overhaul and the installation of a new septic system, deck and dock. In short, we already had
plant and heavy machinery everywhere. Had we engaged a regular builder to construct our bunkie, they’d almost certainly have been in the way as other elements of our master plan progressed. During last week’s Cabin Pressure episode, we showcased the structure being assembled, hundreds of klicks away, and its subsequent flat bed truck journey to Muskoka where it was craned onto pre-poured concrete foundations and then wired — and plumbed — in. And it’s a joy, today, to reveal the interior Centered on a chimney breasted living area are two bedrooms, each of which is elegantly dressed with stout linen and padded headboards.
Both sleeping zones are accessed through barn board doors, which slide perfectly across engineered flooring that stretches across all areas, living and bathroom included. Determined to create warmth and atmosphere, we clad the chimneybreast in cultured Boral stone (visit by www.boralamerica.com for more info) the same product, in fact, used to wrap the bunkie’s side elevations and rear chimneystack. The resultant textural finish is as appealing indoors as it is out. To allude to native architectural vernacular, we clad all other external areas with James Hardie Siding (www.jameshardie.com) and the results, we hope, speak for themselves. Due to the fact our garden
is so densely planted with trees, light is at times problematic so, to balance this, we optimized glass on the front elevation. In association with Strassburger Windows and Doors (www.strassburger.net) custom portals were produced and these swing open, as required, to take advantage of the lakeside vistas. Indulging guests is a pre requisite in our wee world and we’re certain the views from the Bunkie will remain etched on visitors minds for years to come. But of course where there are doors, it’s imperative (especially in cottage country) to include protection against bug invasion.
Please see BUNKIE on Page D2
Here’s the deal. We love offering our guests some privacy when they arrive for the weekend. Sure, we’re all for mix and mingle, but personal chill time is also welcome. So come one, come all (overseas pals and family are you reading?) safe in the knowledge we’ve fashioned, as your holiday hideaway, an annex to which you can escape when our laughter becomes too raucous or our music simply too loud. Previously on Cabin Pressure (Cottage Life, 10 p.m.) we showcased the birth of The Colin and Justin bunkie. Designed in association with Canada Builds (www. canadabuilds.ca) one of North America’s premier construction companies, we toiled long and hard (at the planning stage) before a single foundation was poured. We knew what we wanted, and the decidedly patient team at Canada Builds remained on side even when we changed our minds (sometimes twice or three times per day) as the structure’s eventual aesthetics were plotted and planned. Indeed Roy Graham and Dion Gemmiti (President and Vice President respectively) along with Roy’s son Rob, remained steadfastly unfazed by our dreamof creating a dis-

Stay warm outdoors Outdoor living is here once again. Whether it’s a small porch or patio, a city backyard or a broad stretch of country, now’s the time to play, eat and relax under the sun and stars. Just as you do indoors, let your lifestyle determine how you decorate your exterior space. Think about how and when you are able to enjoy it, and this will guide your selection in seatDEBBIE ing, overhead TRAVIS protection and ambiance. Choose an inviting area close to the house for easy access. This space is also the most protected from wind and rain. Since weather is unpredictable, and warm sunny days turn to cool evenings, an outdoor fireplace or heater will prolong the time you can enjoy sitting outside. There are options that range from patio flames to outdoor fireplaces. Explore what’s new and see what a difference a bit of heat can make. The outdoor gas fireplace shown here from Napoleon has a 100 per cent stainless steel construction that withstands the toughest outdoor environments. There’s no venting or chimney required which makes it perfect for any spot in your garden. Create a surround that matches or complements your home’s exterior with tiles, stucco or stone. Another option is a patio heater. Napoleon patio heaters generate infrared heat rays which heat objects rather than the surrounding air, providing an efficient clean-burning performance. The decorative cast aluminum base hides the propane tank and you can move the heater where you need it, beside the pool, the garden or the house. The modern look of a single torch flame or linear ethanol fire design makes a stunning setting. Placed on a table or positioned in pillars, this decorative element is captivating.
HOUSE TO HOME
Above: This handsome gas outdoor fireplace provides comfort year round no matter what the weather. At right: Versatile patio heaters add both warmth and charm to any outdoor setting. Important note: No matter which product you select, always check first with the bylaws for your neighbourhood to ensure what type/s of outdoor fire products are allowed. Dear Debbie: I am asking for advice on what to use as an accent colour for a lake house that we have just built. Most of the home is decorated in neutrals, floors natural cork, walls painted a linen shade, trim and doors white. We still have area rugs and accessories to purchase that will enhance a fresh country or cottage feel. Thank you. Answer: You can never go wrong if you mimic what nature does. Think about the colours you love that are outside your door. In the blue range, a greyish teal blue is sophisticated, a pure sky blue fresh with a marine feel. If you like greens, then try pistachio or olive, both blend nicely with neutrals. You can go with two different colours, and also switch around as the different seasons arrive. Pumpkin is a wonderful colour for summer and fall. Then a warm raspberry red for winter. Handmade rugs offer the best in texture and colour. They are a delightful way to bring
colour and character into a room. You will find these rugs have a palette of complementary and contrasting shades. Pick your favourites to match up accessories, lamps, even crockery. In a neutral colour scheme your eye will seek out colour. Enjoy picking pieces that tell your story. Debbie Travis’ House to Home column is produced by Debbie Travis and Barbara Dingle.

Above: Metal roofs allow more vibrant colours to become part of a building. The textured appearance delivered by ribbed profiles like this one is part of the design. Below: Factory finishes on metal roofs are better than ever. Look for paint warranties of 25 years or more when choosing a product.
Metal roofing on the rise in Canada Although three quarters of Canadian homes have asphalt shingle roofs, metal roofs are getting more popular for solid reasons. Even though metal costs about twice as much as shingles, people are willing to pay more for the long working life that metal offers. Metal is easily recyclable, light in weight, it goes up quickly and creates a completely different look than shingles. So let me show you the basics of metal roofing choice and installation, then you decide if it makes sense for the next (and probably last) roofing job your house will need.
Metal Roofing Basics
Roofing metal comes in plain and fancy profiles, with factory-finished colours or just bare, grey metal. You’ll find it in steel versions and aluminum alloy, but either way you can order sheets custom-cut to size for the length of your specific roof as measured from peak to eaves. Each piece of metal is fastened with special screws that have neoprene washers under their heads to keep water out, and a preformed cap sits on top to shed water from the ridge. One unique feature of metal roofing is the option it offers for leveling old roofs that have grown wavy over the years. By shimming wood strapping more or less during installation, a skilled carpenter can make a wonky roof quite flat once the metal goes on.
DIY Metal Roofing Are you planning to install metal roofing yourself ? One trick of the trade involves predrilling screw holes in the pile of roofing sheets as they come off the truck, making it easier to drive screws later on. You’ll also find that a small pair of vise grip locking pliers offers a safe option for pulling long sheets of metal roofing up one at a time for installation. Adjust the jaws so they grip the thickness of one sheet firmly, with a length of cord tied to one end of the pliers. Have someone on the ground clip the pliers to one sheet, then lift the end up to the eaves. The person at the top can then pull the sheet up single-handedly with the cord, locking it down with a few screws at the top of the roof before the rest of the sheet gets anchored permanently in those predrilled screw holes. On anything more than a basic roof you’ll have to cut sheets on angles where they meet valleys and angled peaks, and you’ve got two options to make this happen.
Manual snips are only practical for small cuts, but a cordless circular saw with a carbide blade works surprisingly well for long, straight cuts. Just be sure to wear safety glasses and hearing protection. The process is loud. If you’re building a workshop or utility building that calls for tough inside wall surfaces, metal roofing works much better than drywall. It goes up fast, there are no joints to finish, and there’s no painting because the material is factory finished. Metal walls are also highly fire resistant and much less likely than drywall to get scratched or damaged.
If your budget doesn’t allow for custom shimming of a wavy roof, then stay away from metal. It needs quite a flat roof surface for proper installation. You should also check out manufacturer warranties on finish life, too. There’s not much point in having a lifetime roof if the finish is ugly and faded after 15 or 20 years. Aging metal roofs can be repainted, but it will never be as good as

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS KABUL, Afghanistan — The leading presidential candidate defiantly vowed to press ahead with his campaign after narrowly escaping an assassination attempt Friday that underscored Afghanistan’s fragility as it prepares for its first democratic transfer of power and the withdrawal of foreign combat troops. Two bombs struck Abdullah Abdullah’s convoy as it was travelling between campaign events in the capital. The candidate was unharmed but it was a close call. At least 10 people, including three in his entourage, were killed and dozens were wounded in the attack, which heavily damaged the front of Abdullah’s armoured car, destroyed several vehicles and storefronts and left the street littered with twisted metal and other rubble. “The aim of this incident is to create fear and anxiety among the people and prevent them from deciding their own destiny,” Abdullah, 53, calmly told a rally at a Kabul hotel. “We will continue with our election campaign as usual, and no one can separate us from our people with these types of plots.” Although there was no immediate claim of responsibility, the bombings bore the hallmarks of Taliban militants who have vowed to disrupt the election as part of their fight against the Western-backed government. The bombings happened eight days before a runoff in which Afghans are to choose a new leader to replace outgoing President Hamid Karzai. The Taliban have staged a series of highprofile attacks this year, though the first round of voting on April 5 was relatively peaceful. The attempt on Abdullah’s life appeared to be the first direct attack on a candidate, as earlier ones targeted only campaign offices and workers. If one of the candidates were to die, that would have huge implications not only for Afghanistan’s stability but for the Obama administration’s hopes for a signed security agreement in time to make prepara-
tions for keeping about 10,000 U.S. troops in the country for another two years. The Afghan constitution says new elections must be held in the event of a candidate’s death. Karzai condemned the bombings, saying they were staged by “enemies of Afghanistan who don’t want free elections.” Abdullah had just addressed a rally at a wedding hall and was heading toward a campaign event at the Intercontinental Hotel when his convoy was hit along a street in a commercial area of western Kabul. The attack took place about noon, when many Afghans were indoors for Friday prayers. Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqqi said a suicide bombing was followed by a roadside bomb. But Gul Agha Hashim, Kabul’s criminal investigation chief, said the first blast was carried out by a suicide bomber on foot and the second by a suicide car bomber. Health Minister Suraya Dalil told The Associated Press that 10 people were killed and 37 wounded. Three of those killed were a driver and two were bodyguards in another car in Abdullah’s convoy, according to Fazel Sangcharaki, a spokesman for the candidate. A former Afghan foreign minister, Abdullah was the runner-up in the disputed presidential elections of 2009 and hopes again now to succeed Karzai, who is constitutionally barred from seeking a third term. Abdullah is the front-runner for the June 14 runoff, facing former Finance Minister Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai. In the initial balloting, he garnered 45 per cent of votes while Ahmadzai came in second with 31.6 per cent. Former presidential candidate Zalmai Rassoul, who is now supporting Abdullah, also was in the car with Abdullah on Friday but was not injured. Abdullah — who is half Pashtun and half Tajik — has a strong following among ethnic Tajiks but has sought to broaden his support base by choosing a well-known leader of the minority ethnic Hazara group and a Pashtun leader of the powerful Hezbi-Islami group as vice-presidential candidates.

in North Korea
BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea says it has detained an American tourist for committing an unspecified crime, the third U.S. citizen being held there. The state Korean Central News Agency said authorities were investigating him for committing acts inconsistent with the purpose of a tourist visit. It did not give details. “American citizen Jeffrey Edward Fowle entered the DPRK as a tourist on April 29 and acted in violation of the DPRK law, contrary to the purpose of tourism during his stay,” KCNA reported, referring to the country’s official name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. The U.S. State Department confirmed an American was detained, but did not identify the person or provide details for privacy reasons. “We are aware that a U.S. citizen has been detained in North Korea. This is the third U.S. citizen that has been detained in North Korea,” spokeswoman Marie Harf told reporters in Washington. She added there’s “no greater priority for us than the welfare and safety of U.S. citizens abroad.” Harf did not say whether Sweden, which handles consular matters for Americans in North Korea, had been granted access to the American.
She said the department has a warning against travel to North Korea and that being part of a tour group will not prevent a possible arrest. Timothy Tepe, an attorney who is acting as a spokesman for the family of Jeffrey Edward Fowle, confirmed that North Korea detained Fowle, 56, who is married with three children and has a home in Miamisburg in southwest Ohio. Tepe said the family would issue a statement on Monday and not comment until then, “given the sensitive nature of Jeff’s situation.” “This is a very fluid situation that has just come to light and they need time to process it,” Tepe said. Tepe said Fowle was not on a mission for his church, Urbancrest Baptist Church in Lebanon, Ohio, and that he was just visiting North Korea as a tourist. Mark Edward Howard, who attends Fowle’s church, described him as “a very good Christian father, a very loving father to his children.” He said that Fowle’s wife, Tatyana Fowle, 40, is a Russian immigrant with limited English, and that Jeff Fowle always stayed close to her side in case she needed a translation. In a statement, U.S. Rep. Michael Turner, a Dayton, Ohio Republican, said he was “deeply troubled by the detainment of American and Miamisburg resident Jeffery Edward Fowle, by the authoritarian government of North Korea.”

Husband not affectionate after cancer diagnosis Dear Annie: My husband and I are both in our 60s and have had a mutually loving and enjoyable sex life. We were intimate once or twice a week. Until now. “Bill” recently was diagnosed with prostate cancer, and we have elected to do nothing aggressive. The doctor MITCHELL suggested “du& SUGAR tiful watching.” Bill has some erectile dysfunction, and so he has all but eliminated sex from our bedroom. What used to be once a week is now less than once a month. All I need is the cuddling we used to have and the touching and caressing. But I can barely get him to hold my hand.
Sometimes, I wake up during the night and find that Bill is also awake. But he won’t respond to my sweet caresses. Bill refuses to talk about it. How do I assure him that I love him from the inside out? I don’t care if we don’t have sex. I just want the affection he used to show. — Sleepless in Seattle Dear Seattle: So many of our readers have this same problem: Their spouses withhold affection because they fear it could lead to an expectation of sex. But lack of affection only makes one’s partner feel unloved and unwanted. Men who suffer from erectile dysfunction often feel stressed about their sexual performance. And undoubtedly, the prostate cancer is weighing heavily on Bill’s mind. According to the American Cancer Society (cancer.org), survivors and their wives have greater success reviving their sex lives when they go through couples therapy (online or in person). Please suggest it to Bill. Dear Annie: I need to get this off my chest. I am stunned at the number of
events to which my husband and I are invited by folks who live in the same town but who have never once had the courtesy to offer a drink or a meal that didn’t involve our bringing a gift. These “friends” ought to ask themselves, before issuing an invitation, whether they have ever welcomed us into their homes for so much as a cup of coffee. Right now, we are being inundated with graduation invitations and announcements, and we are putting down our collective foot. Obviously, these people think our pockets are deep and that we are unaware of how insulting this is. — Jaded and Voting with Our Wallets Dear Jaded: We understand your aggravation at being invited to events for people to whom you are only marginally connected. When invited to a graduation (or sent an announcement), your only obligation is to send a card of congratulations. Anything further is up to you. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “No Free Lunch,” who doesn’t like it when people come into her restaurant
with their own food. I am a diabetic on a very strict diet for weight loss and blood-sugar control. When my friends want to have a meal in a place that does not have a menu conducive to my diet needs, I will get my food elsewhere and meet them at their restaurant of choice to share a table and fellowship. Perhaps this is rude to the owners, but the only alternative is to take our business to a restaurant that will cater to my dietary needs. I think the restaurant owner first needs to see whether the person is actually freeloading and taking up valuable space, or just trying to share a table with legitimate customers. When I go into a restaurant that has hostile signs posted, it turns me off and I am less likely to return there. It does not create an inviting atmosphere. — Just Saying Please email your questions to email@example.com, or write to: Annie’s Mailbox, c/o Creators Syndicate, 737 3rd Street, Hermosa Beach, CA 90254.
