High price to preserve bridge City report says cost of saving Walterdale Bridge is $20M Preserving historic bridge ‘may detract from the appearance of the new bridge’: Report Construction on new, $132-million arch-style bridge to start in 2013 Keeping the Walterdale Bridge intact may be redundant and costly, says a report released Thursday. Mayor Stephen Mandel, along with a number of councillors,

expressed a desire to save it for nonmotorized traffic after approving the design for a new bridge in April. The cost of rehabilitating the bridge is estimated at $8 million,

while ongoing maintenance over the next 50 years would cost $12 million. “It’s kind of disappointing it’s that expensive,” said Coun. Kerry

Diotte. “It’s hard to believe.” Options to preserve the structure include relocation or incorporating parts of it into promenades, park pavilions or trails.

Meeting a ‘real princess’

The Duchess of Cambridge greets six-year-old Diamond Marshall as the Royal couple arrive in Calgary Thursday, JONATHAN HAYWARD/THE CANADIAN PRESS

Upon arriving in Calgary, the Duchess of Cambridge quickly turned her attention to six-year-old Diamond Marshall. Diagnosed with Stage 4 undifferentiated sarcoma last December, Diamond had two life-saving surgeries in recent months and had spent nearly a month in intensive care. The youngster’s biggest wish was to one day meet a “real princess.” She had written Kate a note from the hospital bed where she watched the royal wedding earlier this year, and the Children’s Wish Foundation went to work.

Police chief considers knife bylaw Edmonton police Chief Rod Knecht is looking at a bylaw to cover the use of edged weapons, as they were predominantly used in many of Edmonton’s 28 homicides this year. Knecht met with Mayor Stephen Mandel and police commission chair Arlene Yakeley Thursday about the nation-leading murder rate. Knecht said he will release a long-term crime strategy later this summer, along with increasing patrols in troubled areas. Leading up to the meeting, Mandel stated a need for long-term strategies to combat sociological factors contributing to the crimes. METRO

‘Look-up tool’ posts inspection results for licensed daycares and contracted day homes Opposition MLA calls new tool ‘an ever-so-modest improvement’ SHELLEY WILLIAMSON/METRO

@METRONEWS.CA

Parents now have a new tool in their hunt for daycare in Alberta. The province upgraded its website Thursday, adding a “look-up tool” for inspection reports for licensed child-care and contracted day homes provincewide. That’s good news for parents like Karen Edwards, who with husband Mark found selecting daycare for son Jack, 2, not once, but twice in the past three years daunting. “It’s a good start,” said Edwards, who just switched daycare facilities to a larger, more convenient location. “Lots of people I know end up compromising.” Edwards said the site would have been valuable to her, if only for weeding out options. “A website wouldn’t replace actual visits, but it gives you an idea where to focus efforts,” said Edwards. “A site like this

would provide mothers and families a tool to look critically at daycares.” Complaints, visit dates, actions taken against facilities and timelines for resolving issues can be found on the site. It’s also good for operators. “This also serves as a tool that child-care operators can use to profile the quality care they offer,” said Yvonne Fritz, Alberta’s minister of child and youth services. But it’s still a drop in the bucket of what’s needed, argued NDP MLA Rachel Notley.

The number of months records go back on the province’s child-care look-up tool. “I think it’s an ever-somodest improvement but it doesn’t get to the heart of the challenges facing young families,” said Notley. She said the shortage of affordable, licensed options leaves many settling for less. For more news, visit metronews.ca/ edmonton

Skeets deets The mosquito Culex tarsalis is the main transmitter of West Nile virus in the city, and the risk is currently ranked at low for contracting the disease. Light traps have already caught 1,600 mosquitoes this year, exceeding the number nabbed for all of 2008 — the lowest year on record.

million per year on mosquito control, but council zapped $200,000 from its 2011 budget last December, citing savings from previous years. Mike Jenkins, of the city’s pest-management branch, said last month this year’s mosquito numbers are actually on par with the 30-year average. METRO


Determined Filipino family ignores skeptics to succeed in Canada When Erick Alfonso meets immigrants who feel overwhelmed, he gives them hope by telling his own family’s story. In fact, the Manila native and his wife achieved personal success in a remarkably short time, by ignoring skeptics who scoffed at their Canadian dreams.

Erick also gives pep talks on job searches, based on his experience and that of his wife’s, Maria Rosario, who within a year moved from a temporary accounting job to accounting manager with a local ďŹ rm.

“We didn’t do anything special, but we were determined. By believing in ourselves and supporting each other, we got through each difďŹ culty,â€? says Erick. “It is possible‌ If you show what you can do, you can build the right connections and open the door to a new life in “They told us that you need Canadian experience Canada.â€? to find a job,â€? recalls the former IT project THIS ADVERTORIAL IS PREPARED BY SCOTIABANK. manager at a Philippine bank. “But we decided to try because we knew it was a good country to raise our kids.â€? Now working as a Manager of Customer Service at Scotiabank in Calgary, Alberta, Erick remembers how friends discouraged them from migrating to Canada with their ďŹ ve young children.

Now established as a Scotiabank Manager, Erick Alfonso welcomes other new Canadians to his branch.

Upon arrival in Canada in 2006, the Alfonsos discovered that many Filipino compatriots were juggling low paying jobs to survive. While Erick also took a temporary factory job to pay the bills, he refused to give up hope. “A friend told me to open my ďŹ rst bank account at Scotiabank, and the teller was so helpful that I decided to submit my resumĂŠ,â€? recounts Erick. To his amazement, the branch manager hired him within a month as a casual teller, and two months later, gave him a full-time customer support role. “I was lucky that Scotiabank gave me the chance to prove myself,â€? notes Erick, who has risen through the ranks and now serves many Asian customers at Calgary’s Castleridge Centre Branch. “I can relate to them because I remember arriving with no bank account and no permanent address. The Scotiabanker explained everything to me, and I try to do the same for others today.â€? For example, Erick recommends the Scotiabank StartRight Program for Newcomers, which includes a free day-to-day bank account for one year , a wide range of VISA card options and a number of other customized services and benefits. He also provides plenty of ďŹ rst-hand ďŹ nancial advice. ÂŽ

“Since many newcomers arrive with personal savings, I help them invest their savings wisely, including short-term investments such as a TaxFree Savings Account (TFSA), which lets them earn tax-free income that they can access later for other needs,� says Erick. He also explains the importance of building a Canadian credit history. “Some newcomers are afraid to use credit cards, but I tell them how it can help them achieve other goals if they use it responsibly.�

Stony Plain hopes to cork liquor outlets Stony Plain councillors are hoping to put a cap on the town’s growing pack of liquor stores. The town has 10 shops already and that’s far too many for just 14,177 residents, said one councillor. “We have liquor stores on corners like we used to have gas stations,” said Coun. Pat Hansard on Thursday. “I am totally in favour of free enterprise, but there comes a time when we have to intervene.” This comes in the wake of a report citing a liquor store for every 1,417 people. Edmonton has one

The brick siding of a downtown building is about to get a whole lot brighter. A city official says a deal is close to being finalized with Telus that would secure their building on 104 Avenue and 104 Street for something the city has long desired — an outdoor neon-sign museum. “It’s basically agreed on,” said David Holdsworth, heritage planner with the city. “It’s just being looked at by lawyers, who are crossing the T’s and dotting the I’s.” There are nine signs planned for restoration and display right now, and Holdsworth hopes others will be donated. Some of the signs include Hub Cigar, Pig & Whistle, Princess Theatre and Mike’s News Stand. “They’re ones old-time Edmontonians will recog-

Jim Taylor, executive director of the Downtown Business Association, said this is the most optimistic he’s been about the project, as talks with Telus have gone on for six to eight months. Holdsworth hopes to have the signs installed by the end of the fall.

Underscoring the persistent dangers, a roadside bomb killed eight Afghan policemen on patrol in the northern district of Fayz Abad. Northern Afghanistan has seen a rise in violence over the past two years. “It's safe to say that the

country of Afghanistan remains volatile,” said Defence Minister Peter MacKay. “There have been very hard-fought gains made as far as the stability and security, but it is fragile and much of the responsibility rests, of course, with the government of Afghanistan.” Canada was the sixth largest troop-contributing nation, behind the U.S. and European countries.

The people of South Sudan finally get their own country on Saturday, an emotional independence celebration few thought possible during a half century of civil wars and oppression that left more than two million dead. Military parades and celebrations will burst forth Saturday in front of dozens of visiting world leaders. But South Sudan must face grim realities: It will be one of the most underdeveloped countries on the planet, only 15 per cent of its citizens can read and fears of renewed conflict abound. South Sudan’s successful independence drive was made possible by a 2005 peace deal between Sudan’s north and south. Last January, former guerrilla fight-

ers shed tears as they cast votes to break away from the control of the Khartoum-based north. Among those who cast ballots at special U.S. polling stations were some of the 3,800 war orphans known as the Lost Boys of Sudan, who ran away from

war and fled to the U.S. The young government faces massive challenges reforming a bloated and often predatory army, diversifying the solely oil-based economy, and deciding how political power will be distributed.

Yukon politician dies in car crash

A worker has died after falling through a skylight at the vacation home of former B.C. premier Gordon Campbell. WorkSafeBC and the coroner confirmed the man died at least one day after the fall, which occurred July 4 at B.C.’s Halfmoon Bay.

A court case that could have increased First Nations influence over Yukon mining has supported the existing assessment and regulatory system. The Liard First Nation had asked to suspend a decision that allowed Selwyn Chihong Mining Ltd. to proceed with a project.

Steve Cardiff, 53, died Wednesday when the car he was in hit a truck south of Whitehorse. Cardiff was first elected in 2002 and represented the southern Yukon riding of Mount Lorne for two terms. He planned to run again in the election this fall.

They asked how it should be worn.” Just a couple of hours later, while attending an outdoor event, William and Kate emerged before the crowd wearing their custom-made, white Smithbilt hats. The couple’s arrival in Cowtown after a private purely defensive act, park spokesman Al Nash said, adding that Yellowstone typically does not try to capture or remove a bear in what he called “a wildlife incident.” It was the first fatal grizzly attack inside the park in 25 years — but the third in the Yellowstone region in just over a year. The attack occurred on Wednesday about two kilometres up a popular backcountry trail and not far from an area that is one of the park’s top attractions. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Man with a machete holds kindergartners hostage for six fearful hours A man carrying a machete barged into a Malaysian kindergarten and held children and teachers hostage for six tense hours Thursday. The man threatened to kill the children unless he was given a gun, police said. The children were heard singing in what was believed to be an attempt to calm the man. Finally, police shot him in the head. The 30 children and four teachers were not harmed, officers said.

Obama hints at cuts to social programs

Wireless. Limits

U.S. lawmakers try to hammer out a deal to avert a default on debt It would be the first time in history that the U.S. has missed a payment Spectre of debt Obama says the government needs to raise the $14.3-trillion debt limit by Aug. 2. If a deal is not reached by that date, the U.S. could default on its debt, which would likely touch off a global financial crisis and plunge the country into another recession, analysts say.

sional and presidential elections. Democrats are already campaigning as defenders of social programs while Republicans oppose any tax increases. The White House has also said Obama is aiming for

deficit reduction closer to $4 trillion over 10 years, nearly double the roughly $2 trillion that had been at the centre of negotiations. Raising the U.S. debt ceiling is usually little more than a formality, but Republicans who control the House of Representatives say they won’t go along without major spending cuts, and they will not accept tax increases, something Obama has said will be necessary. “People were frank,” Obama said, just moments after adjourning the meeting with the eight lawmakers who make up the bipartisan leadership of Congress.

A debt-crisis session among U.S. congressional leaders was “very constructive,” President Barack Obama said on Thursday, but the parties were still far apart in their attempts to avert a default of U.S. financial obligations. He said he would reconvene the negotiators on Sunday. Thursday’s meeting came amid signs the White House was willing to cut spending on major benefit programs for the elderly, while Republicans hinted they might consider new steps to raise revenue.

Cartoon by Michael de Adder Worth mentioning BENGHAZI, Libya.

Moammar Gadhafi is loved in Libya’s rebel capital — as a subject for street artists to mock. Caricatures of the Libyan leader dot walls and buildings across Benghazi in renderings that range from crude sketches to elaborate satire such as Gadhafi being knocked around by a rebel-flagged boot or depicted with a Nazi swastika. Before Libya’s uprising, even a hint of dissent risked a crushing response from Gadhafi’s security forces. Now, it’s open season on Gadhafi in rebel-held territory. For some aspiring cartoonists — and others wanting to make their mark — this means getting out their spray paints and markers to display their opposition. Rida, a 35-year-old barber and interior designer before the rebellion, makes dozens of Gadhafi sketches each day. Some have shown him in a trash can or with his clothes blown off by a U.S. jet fighter. “I cannot fight with arms, but I can kill him with my pencil,” said Rida.

WEIRD NEWS

Can you teach the same dog new tricks? A dog that went missing seven years ago will be reunited with her original owner after living for all that time with another family in the same Arkansas town. Andrew Navarette told animal control officers that he let his Shih Tzu, Mimi, out in the backyard of his Rogers, Ark., home seven years ago, but when he went to retrieve her she had disappeared, the Rogers Morning

News reported Thursday. Navarette was unable to track Mimi down, even though she had a microchip containing his contact information. Some time later, Kim Rafter of Rogers acquired the animal from someone in good faith, renamed her Gizmo, and has cared for her ever since. Meanwhile, Navarette relocated to Woodlake, Calif. Last Saturday, Mimi showed up at an animal shelter in Rogers where officials found the chip and called Navarette, who had kept the same cellphone number. Assistant shelter manager Matt Colston said Navarette was excited Mimi had been found and said he would pay for the Shih Tzu to be shipped to his home in California. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

2 scene Scene in brief

Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis and Jason Bateman in Horrible Bosses.

Bosses delivers the goods Richard Crouse and Phil Brown agree the premise of Horrible Bosses is a bit tired Despite that, it’s a funny movie that induces pants-wetting laughs

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

Movie writer Phil Brown is sitting in for Mark Breslin this week. Richard Crouse: Phil, of course no reasonable person would break into their bosses homes looking for ways to kill them, but this is a comedy so we’ll accept that. Or will we? I thought the movie started off strong, funny and well paced, but its central premise — let’s kill our bosses! — seems forced and it sucks some of the funny from the middle part of the movie. What did you think? Phil Brown: Richard, I’ve got to go the other way. The premise of having a terrible boss that makes

your life hell is sadly all too relatable for many, but the opening bad boss gags felt tired even with the R-rated facelift. It didn’t click for me until the murder element turned the movie into a live action cartoon with a sick sense of humour. RC: Interesting, I felt as though I was watching a funny enough movie marred by a silly premise. It’s one thing to have some drinks and joke about killing your boss, it’s quite another to act on it. I don’t want to beleaguer this point, but the crucial setup scene to me felt forced, like a weak lead in to a funny punch line. Having said that, Charlie Day

made me laugh. A lot. PB: The whole premise is old and they even namedropped two movies that did it better (Strangers On A Train and Throw Mamma From The Train). I think we can both agree that things really got rolling in the second half when it deviated from that form. Charlie Day definitely induces pants-wetting laughter consistently and I think the cast made this movie work through an improvisation festival. The only problem is that comedy style kills narrative momentum and there was no real tension in the thriller aspect of the story. Though I suppose the laughs are more important.

RC: And there are plenty of laughs. I don’t want to be Debbie Downer here. The movie is funny. It was cool to see Kevin Spacey revive his character Buddy from Swimming with Sharks, and if this doesn’t wipe away any traces of Rachel left over from Jennifer Aniston’s TV work I don’t know what will. Now, I guess, she’s America’s Foul Mouthed Over Sexed Sweetheart. PB: In my mind, she always will be. Despite the inconsistencies, Horrible Bosses delivers the goods and will always be the only movie featuring Colin Farrell doing a coked-up Michael Keaton impression with a comb-over.

The website Funny Or Die debuted a Field of Dreams sequel Wednesday. Twilight star Taylor Lautner plays the equivalent of Kevin Costner in a mock movie trailer that quickly drew more than 150,000 views. The video, Field of Dreams 2: Lockout, is a riff on the NFL labour negotiations. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A Pooh for a new century Disney gives Winnie the Pooh a more contemporary feel, yet stays true to the classic charm of the original RICHARD CROUSE

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

Winnie the Pooh has Canadian roots. The beloved A.A. Milne creation, a potbellied bear with a taste for “hunny,” was based on a real-life Canadian black bear that lived at the London Zoo. Brought to the zoo by Lieutenant Harry Colebourn during the First World War, the bear was named Winnie after the soldier’s hometown of Winnipeg. It’s fitting, then, that the new Disney Winnie the Pooh movie had many Canadians help bring it to the screen. “It’s like winning the lottery having worked here,” says Alberta native

Brian Ferguson of his 21 years working at the House of Mouse. His first job after joining the company was animating the company’s mascot in Mickey Mouse’s Prince and the Pauper. “It’s such a simple design,” he says, “but if you get a pencil thickness off in the proportions, it looks wrong.” That’s a lesson he took with him when drawing the classic characters in Winnie the Pooh. “The people who did the first Winnie the Poohs were masters and the stuff they did then, wow,” he says. “Even as an experienced animator I look at it and go, ‘Oh my goodness, I wouldn’t have thought of that.’ It’s subtle little things that make a character be

just a little away from normal. It’s the subtle difference between, ‘I would never have done it that way,’ to ‘I would never have thought to do it that way.’” Nik Ranieri, a Torontonian with 23 years at the studio, adds that while the classic look of Winnie the Pooh has been maintained in the movie, efforts have been made to update the feel of the film. “When I watch the film there are some things in there I don’t think you’d see in the old ones,” he says. “Look at the character of Rabbit. Some of those poses and expressions are a little more manic, but it doesn’t take away from the charm of the original. It just adds a little bit of contemporary

Disney’s Winnie the Pooh

feel to it.” For Vancouverite Clio Change, Winnie the Pooh marks a landmark — it’s her first Disney film. “I think I was four when I

told my dad I wanted to work here,” she says. “He said, ‘OK, you can sell Coke in the parks in a mouse suit.’ Luckily it was animation instead.”

When I ask her if all the Disney Canucks have their own table in the cafeteria she nods and laughs, “We eat maple cookies and drink syrup.”

WEEKEND, JULY 8-10, 2011

Captain America keeps his name Captain America will keep its patriotic title in most of the world when the superhero adventure hits the big screen. Paramount Pictures and Marvel Studios gave distributors around the world the option of shortening the title of Captain America: The First Avenger to simply The First Avenger, out of concern about antiAmerican sentiment. But the only countries that took them up on it were Russia, Ukraine and South Korea. In other territories, the movie will go out with the full title, a sign that the brand value of the Marvel Comics hero trumps any potential anti-U.S. feelings in some parts of the world. Movie titles often are changed in foreign coun-

the patriotic super-soldier, Captain America opens in U.S. theatres July 22.

Kevin James wanted to make a family movie â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one that would be stupendously inoffensive. He has managed to do that with talking animals in way â&#x20AC;&#x201D; amazingly â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t actually as boneheaded as the premise sounds. As a man passionate about his zookeeping job, Jamesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; character gets ad-

vice from his talking animals (voiced by the likes of Nick Nolte and Cher) on how to win back an ex. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goofy, obvious, contrived and corny (there is a trip to TGI Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s with a dancing gorilla, after all), but the humour is silly enough to amuse kids without resorting to toilet humour or sleaze for the adults. With this box of chocolates, you know exactly what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to get, and that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily a bad thing. HEIDI PATALANO

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Music video guru and Thumbsucker director Mike Mills exorcizes some demons from his fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death with this sweetly melancholic autobiographical comedy. Ewen McGregor plays Mills and Christopher Plummer plays his father who came out of the closet at 75 before dying of cancer shortly thereafter. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a painfully realistic love story between the broken character played by McGregor and an equally damaged actress played by Melanie Laurent. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a movie about life, loss and finding love despite neurosis and depression. PHIL BROWN

Transformers has made almost $200 million worldwide, so you know there will be a fourth. But who will star, now that Shia LaBeouf has moved on? The Internet says: Jason Statham, star of the Transporter films. After Showbiz Spy reported the rumor, other sites speculated it may be true, partly because he’s dating Transformers 3 star Rosie HuntingtonWhiteley. METRO

Combining wine with anything but an empty glass has been called a lot of things — and not all of them pretty. It’s never bothered the Spanish. Their recipe for warm weather refreshment has survived for centuries as the popular red winebased, Mediterraneanmixer sangria. While styles vary, you can make your own version using an inexpensive Spanish red or a value-priced, fruit-forward alternative like Hungary’s non-vintage Hungarovin Szekszárdi Vörös Kékfrankos ($9.68 - $12.79).

Phillies brace for Braves Atlanta heads into Philadelphia 21⁄2 games back in race for National League East pennant Braves have won five of the nine meetings between the teams so far this season DREW HALLOWELL/GETTY IMAGES

Leading the division for all but one day this season means little to the Philadelphia Phillies at this point They’re well aware the standings only matter after 162 games. Still, this weekend’s showdown with the Atlanta Braves is important for both teams. The Phillies are 21⁄2 games ahead of Atlanta in the NL East entering their three-game series at Citizens Bank Park, and they’d like to head into the all-star break with more breathing room. “This is a big series,” manager Charlie Manuel said. “We’ve just got to go in there and play like we’ve been playing.” The pitching-rich Phillies have their three all-star starters lined up to face Atlanta. Roy Halladay (11-3), Cliff Lee (9-6) and Cole Hamels (10-4) will pitch in that order. The Braves, on the other hand, won’t have two of their top three starters. Ace Jair Jurrjens (12-3) and Tim Hudson (8-6) both pitched during Atlanta’s four-game sweep of Colorado. Instead, Brandon Beachy (3-1) goes against Halladay on Friday night, Tommy Hanson (104) starts Saturday and Derrick Lowe (5-6) takes the mound Sunday. “I like competing against the best and they’re pretty darn good,” Beachy said. “It’s a challenge.” The Phillies have the best record in the majors at

Ryan Howard and the Phillies will take on the Braves this weekend.

“We’ve been winning some games and we have a good record, but the Braves are right there with us. We ain’t done nothing yet, really.”

PHILLIES MANAGER

Quoted

CHARLIE MANUEL

55-33, but the Braves (53-36) are determined to stand in the way of a fifth straight division title. Both clubs have relied on stellar pitching and each has overcome key injuries and an inconsistent offence so far. Philadelphia is currently without two of its starting five — Roy Oswalt and Joe Blanton — and its top three closers — Ryan Madson, Jose Contreras and Brad Lidge. Five-time all-star Chase Utley was sidelined the first two months and centre fielder Shane Victorino and catcher Carlos Ruiz also spent time on the disabled list. Victorino (thumb) and all-star third baseman Placido Polanco (back) are both iffy for this series. The Braves began the season without Jurrjens, and were without Beachy and Hanson at various points. Outfielders Jason Heyward and Nate McLouth were sidelined earlier in the year, and left fielder Martin Prado is on the DL.

“It was another nervous stage and because of the rain I virtually couldn’t see anything. At the end of the stage I was moving to the very front of the pack, simply to avoid accidents, and not because I wanted to attack.” ALBERTO CONTADOR, ON THURSDAY’S SIXTH STAGE OF THE TOUR DE FRANCE.

Glenn’s gabbing gaffe and thoughts heading into Week 2 “It was Printers who overreacted in a similar situation with the B.C. Lions two seasons ago. He was released and the former MVP hasn’t been seen since.”

CFL EXTRA POINTS DAN TOTH

EDMONTON@METRONEWS.CA

Hamilton quarterback Kevin Glenn should take a lesson from Casey Printers, a former MVP whose big mouth and attitude had him punted from the Canadian Football League. Going public with his displeasure after being pulled out of Hamilton’s season-opening loss to the Win-

nipeg Blue Bombers, Glenn said, “It just felt like a smack in the face.” It was Printers who overreacted in a similar situation with the B.C. Lions two seasons ago. He was released and the former MVP hasn’t been seen since. Quarterbacks are supposed to be team leaders, especially when everything goes wrong. How they react to adversity is just one of the many ways they are evaluated.

Glenn was pulled in favour of backup Quinton Porter with the Tiger-Cats down by four points after the Hamilton starter threw his third pick. He was back on the field this week, hopefully with a better attitude, taking reps with the Tabbies’ first-team offence as the club prepares for the Edmonton Eskimos. Buckin’ Tough: If Winnipeg Blue Bombers fans are convinced the team is going nowhere without Buck Pierce at QB this season, they must have been terrified to

see their star get thumped in Week 1. Although Pierce bounced back on his feet, Hamilton linebacker Jamal Johnson hit him so hard it knocked the breath out every Manitoba resident. Pierce proved he’s a tough dude, but the Bombers need to evaluate their pass protection to keep him on his feet. Esks’ ace in the hole: The constant recycling of CFL coaches often comes back to bite teams. The Saskatchewan Roughriders are a case in point after the Eskimos exploited the Green’s defensive tendencies in Week 1. Edmonton offensive co-ordinator Marcus Crandell quarterbacked the Riders and knows the patterns of Riders defensive mastermind Richie Hall, who is back in Regina after two years in Edmonton as head coach. Esks QB Ricky Ray shredded the Riders D in Week 1, going 21-for-27 for 294

yards and three TDs. Kicking crisis in Calgary: Lose an import receiver or running back to injury and you can have a plane full of recruits in town overnight. Lose a Canadian kicker, as the Calgary Stampeders did last week against Toronto, and you really understand pain. The Stamps are without injured placekicker Rob Maver (leg) this week and have added Rene Paredes, a player so obscure he isn’t even a household name in his own house. Paredes spent four seasons at Concordia where he converted 54 of 79 field-goal attempts. The 26-year-old non-import emerged from a pack of kickers the Stamps airlifted into town to try out, including CFL veterans Jamie Boreham and Matt Kellett.

Pirates no longer taking on water A year after enduring 105 losses, new manager has turned perennial losers into National League feel-good story JARED WICKERHAM/GETTY IMAGES

One by one, a seemingly endless train of reporters filed into first-year Pirates manager Clint Hurdle’s office on Wednesday. Last season, the afternoon media session for a midweek game against a last-place opponent like Houston might have drawn a handful in this town where the Steelers rule and the Penguins are a marquee attraction. But it seems like everybody wants to hear what Hurdle has to say these days. An afterthought for virtually an entire generation, these pesky Pirates were only 1 1⁄2 games behind the National League Central lead as play began on Thursday. “There’s been a mindset change in this clubhouse and in this organization,” second baseman Neil Walker said. “I think it’s a lot of guys, but Clint Hurdle has come in here and instilled confidence in every single

The Pirates hold the North American major sports record of consecutive losing seasons with 18. They are a win away from clinching their first winning record at the all-star break since 1992.

Andrew McCutchen of the Pirates is congratulated by manager Clint Hurdle earlier this season.

one of us.” In stark contrast to insipid predecessor John Russell, Hurdle is at his best with an audience. He cracks jokes, but he’s also not afraid to provide a stern hand with his players. Perhaps no one knows both ends of that this sea-

“The players understand who they’re playing for — the city of Pittsburgh ... People work hard for their money, and they want an effort.” PIRATES MANAGER CLINT HURDLE

son better than centrefielder Andrew McCutchen, the team’s best position player. McCutchen was disci-

plined by Hurdle in May and left out of the lineup for not running out a ball in the dirt after he struck out.

But when McCutchen was a surprising omission for an all-star spot last weekend, Hurdle criticized those involved for the decision. “That shows one way that he’s supportive and he’s behind us,” McCutchen said. “It feels good to be

able to hear what he had to say and to have that support by saying what he had to say and not really caring (about repercussions). “That’s the person he is.” Hurdle has recently spoken of the “joy” this season has brought him. The Texas Rangers’ hitting coach last season — after being fired midway through his eighth season as manager of the Colorado Rockies in 2009 — Hurdle said after a recent victory, “I’ve had a lot of different teams, but this team is an absolute blast to manage.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
