DUI collisions declining in Alberta: Stats Legislation. But critics of new laws say measures could hinder progress in drunk-driving fight

turned down

page 31

Donald Fehr, executive director of the NHLPA, speaks to journalists following collective bargaining talks in Toronto Wednesday. It took commissioner Gary Bettman less than 24 hours to conclude that the union’s initial offering, made Tuesday, held little appeal for the owners, and the two parties are no closer to a deal than they were in June. Chris Young/the canadian press

Fewer Alberta crashes have been attributed to impaired driving in recent years, but that is doing little to stir proponents of new provincial legislation. “It’s refreshing to see, but unfortunately not everyone is getting the message,” said Edmonton police Sgt. Conrad Moschansky. According to Statistics Canada data compiled from Alberta police services, the rate of nonfatal collisions attributed to

impaired driving is about half of what it was in the late 1990s. Last year saw 95 total collisions, or roughly 2.5 per 100,000 residents. While data on fatal impaired collisions have fluctuated a bit more, the general trend is still downward, with 0.45 incidents per 100,000 residents in 2011. Wildrose justice critic Shayne Saskiw said he believes drunk driving is a problem that will never be fully rooted out, and he fears new legislative measures taken by the province will actually do more harm than good. Starting Sept. 1, all drivers found with a blood-alcohol content over .05 will be issued a three-day driving suspension

instead of the current 24-hour reprimand. “It’s going to distract the enforcement officers to reprimand people at .05,” Saskiw said. “Instead, those resources should be devoted to those over .08.” But Alberta Transportation spokesperson Parker Hogan disagreed, adding the new law targets just a small portion of irresponsible motorists. “Most make those decisions, make those arrangements to get home safely either by friend or by professional driver ... but unfortunately the professional driver for some of these folks is operating a hearse or an ambulance,” he said.

Bad-joke department

Resort hit by slide flings a little mud back at deputy premier

JEREMY NOLAIS, WITH FILES FROM KATIE TURNER/METRO

NEWS

Officials of a B.C. resort hit by a massive mudslide this summer have taken what they believe is a playful dig at Alberta’s deputy premier, who apologized for a joke he made about the disaster. Thomas Lukaszuk was out of the country on July 15 when a slide caused major damage to the Fairmont Hot Springs in eastern B.C. and trapped hundreds in an RV park overnight. On his Facebook page, Lukaszuk posted a photo of a washed-out road and joked there were likely good room deals if guests didn’t mind a little mud. On Wednesday, the resort released a tonguein-cheek reply, offering Lukaszuk a two-for-one room deal and a shovel. “He had some fun with us, (and) now it’s our turn,” said Marke Dickson, director of sales and marketing. “Most times politicians land themselves in hot water — it’s not a good thing. This time he could land himself in hot water and it would be soothing and relaxing.” The offer to Lukaszuk is part of a promotion by the resort as it recovers from the slide. Lukaszuk declined requests for an interview but his staff issued a statement. “The deputy premier considers the mudslide at Fairmont Hot Springs resort an unfortunate situation, and is pleased to see the resilience of the community in response to the natural disaster,” it reads. “He encourages any donation be directed to those individuals who were impacted by the incident.”

Family mourns ‘senseless’ death of shooting victim Homicide. Loved ones prepare to bring son home to Newfoundland The family members of Edmonton’s latest murder victim are asking for privacy as they mourn their loss. Dale Maloney, 33, died on Monday night after shots rang out during rush hour on 113 Street just north of Jasper Avenue. “We, the family of Dale Maloney, are trying to come to terms with the senseless, violent death of our beloved Dale in Edmonton,” reads a

statement released to the media on Wednesday. Maloney, originally from Newfoundland, was a former resident of St. John’s in the suburb of Goulds. “We are heartbroken and devastated, and find it incomprehensible that there could be such a cruel disregard for human life and dignity,” the family said. An impromptu memorial of pink daisies and a card lies in the back alley behind a restaurant and café where Maloney was shot. A Facebook group set up in his memory late Wednesday appeals for financial assistance to help Maloney’s family bring him home to

August homicides

Dale Maloney’s death is Edmonton’s 18th murder of 2012 and the third this month. • Mike Motiuk, 22, died after an attack at a house party in Mill Woods on Aug. 6. • Catlin Houle, 25, died of unknown causes on Aug. 3 in McCauley.

Newfoundland. Police confirmed on Tuesday that Maloney died of multiple gunshot wounds

and they believe he didn’t know his attackers. Police said Maloney, who was unarmed, and the suspects were involved in a verbal altercation before his death. Witnesses said they saw Maloney talking to two men before he was shot several times at about 4 p.m. He was taken to hospital, where he died. Police spokeswoman Patrycia Thenu said Wednesday that there are no updates on the case that can be made public, nor any information on the suspects except that they fled in a black SUV.

Safe cycling with new corrals Whyte Avenue. Pilot project sees around 50 new bike parking spaces available in Old Strathcona lucy haines

edmonton@metronews.ca

Fitting 16 bicycles in one metered parking space just sounds like a good idea. City Coun. Ben Henderson thinks so, and the representative for Strathcona hopes others will too as they bike to the busy city neighbourhood and then park in recently installed bike corrals. “It’s about making the commitment and making it convenient for people,” said Henderson, who commutes by bike to work each day from his home in the river valley. Henderson is unveiling the project just as the Edmonton Fringe Festival gets underway in Old Strathcona, bringing with it thousands of visitors via bike, foot, car and bus. “Once you create the facility and infrastructure for bikes, people will use it. That’s our hope,” he said.

On-street bike parking • Four on-street bike-park-

ing corrals, each holding 16 bikes, are now in use on and around Whyte for a three-month city initiative. Racks are at Whyte and 104 St. near Starbucks, and at Whyte and 105 St. beside Chapters.

• The city wants feedback

on the project. Call 780944-5600 or contribute online at edmonton.ca/ bikeparking

Murray Davison, executive director of the Old Strathcona Business Association, welcomes the initiative to keep bikes parked and off the sidewalks, making the area safer and less cluttered, with more space for pedestrians and patios. “We’re the outdoor mall in town and we want to keep it walkable,” said Davison. “Plus it’s one more step to becoming greener.” Area resident and cyclist David McIntyre said he often rides his bike, and would definitely use the new corrals.

Residents and visitors to Old Strathcona now have access to handy bike corrals thanks to a three-month city pilot project. Council will review the initiative in the fall to decide whether to make the corrals permanent. Lucy Haines/for Metro

Pointing to the often full single-bike lock-ups along

Whyte Avenue, the 21-yearold said these multi-unit

racks increase the odds he’ll park his bike.

That’s just what the city wants to hear.

Fringe play focuses on The Day it Rained Fire in Slave Lake

Personifying the wildfire that ripped through Slave Lake last year has been a goal of Nicola and Len Ramsey. The couple, who have lived in Slave Lake for more than 20 years, attempted to bring a show that did just that to the Edmonton International Fringe Festival last summer, and are finally succeeding in doing so this year with a play titled The Day it Rained Fire. The opening scene features firefighters on May 14, 2011, and is followed by dialogue between two wildfires and a representative of the province about why the fires shouldn’t

come into town. The next scenes include a couple deciding whether to stay or go, a man retuning to his burning home looking for his family, firefighters battling the blaze, and, finally, a couple returning to find they lost their house. “Except for the one where we imagined what the character of the fire (would say), the rest of (the scenes) are based on real events and stories that people have told us,” said Nicola.

In-person. Public gets first look at accused in peace officer’s death The suspect in the death of an Alberta peace officer has made his first in-person court appearance after a brief meeting with a psychiatrist. Crown lawyers say the next step for Trevor Kloschinsky is to retain a lawyer before his next court appearance on Monday. Kloschinsky, who is 46, was in full shackles and limped noticeably when he walked into a Calgary courtroom. He is charged with firstdegree murder in the death of peace officer Rod Lazenby.

It was a battle between a group of gardeners carrying spades and pitchforks and a giant pipeline company lining up its bulldozers. In the end, the little guys with the green thumbs won. Plains Midstream Canada has backed off its plans to start construction of a pipeline in north Edmonton that would have destroyed a summer’s worth of work by some community gardeners. “It was never, ‘I want to win against the big guy.’ I was more concerned about the people here and their needs,” Francisco Huezo said Wednesday.

On Tuesday, bulldozers were scheduled to rumble through the garden. Dozens of people hunched down in the cold rain to salvage some of their vegetables. Huezo pulled out his potatoes, carrots and cucumbers then gave them all to charity. But that night, he learned Plains Midstream had decided to delay the work. Huezo said his 83-yearold mother, who spent days crying about the pending destruction, is now happy again. “It’s the story everybody likes to hear,” said Huezo. the canadian press

Hope Mission kicks off sock drive ahead of winter Helping the homeless. Small socks make a big difference to Hope Mission clients LAURIE CALLSEn

laurie.callsen@metronews.ca

While socks may not seem like a major gift in the eyes of the average Edmontonian, they can make a big difference to the homeless living and walking the city’s streets every day, especially in the upcoming winter months. That’s why Edmonton’s Hope Mission has partnered with Sobeys, the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions, Walt Disney Pictures and Hanes to hold a sock drive from now until Sept. 3. “Homeless people … will spend up to 20 miles a day walking around between different services and hours in lineups. Most of them have tattered or soiled socks, or no socks at all,” said Hope Mission spokesperson Devin Komarniski Wednesday. “Homeless are very prone to foot ailments due to damp socks, and we want to provide that seemingly small thing in their life to show that we care about bigger things,” he added. Men’s, women’s and children’s socks can be dropped at any Sobeys location in the city, and Hanes will match all donations received.

Former police chief’s son admits to murder While representing himself in a Kamloops courtroom, the son of a former Edmonton police chief admitted to killing his ex-girlfriend, stabbing an undercover RCMP officer and blinding a cellmate at a Kamloops correctional facility. Mark Lindsay, 25, was arrested in September 2011 after stabbing an undercover Mountie during a sting operation to determine if he was involved in the disappearance of his ex-girlfriend, Dana Turner, who vanished a month earlier. During his testimony Wednesday, Lindsay said he killed Turner but believed it was self-defence. Metro Animal cruelty

Sobeys Hawkstone store manager Neil Hum said donating socks is just one way his customers can pay it forward. “We encourage our customers to get out and help others that don’t have the same advantages in life and

help them get back on their feet,” Hum said. Hope Mission received 11,000 socks in 2011 and hopes to receive even more this year. There are approximately 2,400 homeless people living in Edmonton.

A B.C. woman has been charged after RCMP found the remains of a dog and kennel burning in a fire pit at a campground near Grand Prairie. RCMP said they responded to the Nitehawk Recreational Area near Grovedale around 11:40 a.m. July 7 after complaints of a woman mistreating animals. Debra Holde, 53, of Fort St. John, B.C. has been charged with two counts of injuring or endangering animals and two counts of causing animals unnecessary suffering. Metro

Queen Elizabeth’s husband, Prince Philip, was admitted to hospital in Aberdeen, Scotland, on Wednesday with a recurrence of the bladder infection he suffered earlier this summer.

The burglar who broke into Steve Jobs’s house made off with the Apple co-founder’s wallet with a dollar inside and his driver’s licence along with Apple gadgets and jewelry, says a police report. The suspect, Kariem McFarlin, 35, allegedly tar-

Town’s double dose of grief Carnage in Syria. Two savage bombing raids kill at least 20, including a baby, with women and children among the wounded Syrian fighter jets swooped in low over the rebel-held town of Azaz Wednesday in two bombing runs that sent panicked civilians fleeing for cover and reduced homes to rubble. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 23 people died in Attack scene

One man was pulled bloodied but alive from the wreckage of destroyed homes. “God is great! God is great!” yelled his rescuers. Nearby, a woman sat on the pile of bricks that once was her home, cradling a dead baby. Two other bodies lay next to her, covered in blankets. “I saw the plane come down and some missiles fall and then there was smoke all over,” said Mohammed Fuad, 18, who lives near the site of the attacks. “When it cleared, we heard screaming and saw rubble all over the streets.” The attack came on the same day the United Nations released a report accusing Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces of war crimes in the killings of more than 100 civilians — nearly half of them children — in the village of Houla in May. the associated press

Wants new ideas

Baird thinks again over $2 million Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird has changed his mind about giving $2 million to a SyrianCanadian group so it could buy medical supplies. The Canadian Press has learned Baird has told officials to find another way to get the supplies to Syria. The government announced on the weekend that Canadian Relief for Syria would be given the $2 million to provide medical care to people caught up in the ongoing conflict. But a government source says Baird is concerned that some of the funds will be used for warehouses and other infrastructure.

Scientists have found a cosmic supermom. It’s a galaxy that gives birth to more stars in a day than ours does in a year. Astronomers used NASA’s Chandra X-Ray telescope to spot this distant gigantic galaxy creating about 740 new stars a year. By comparison, our Milky Way spawns just about one new star each year. It’s about 5.7 billion light years away in the centre of a recently discovered cluster of galaxies that give the brightest X-ray glow astronomers have seen. But this is the size, type and age of galaxy that shouldn’t be producing stars at such a rapid pace, said the authors of a study published Wednesday in the journal Nature.

Attacks fly as U.S. race gets increasingly heated Election. Romney accuses Obama of running campaign driven by ‘hatred’; Obama says that his rival’s hawking ‘trickle-down snake oil’

Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney said U.S. President Barack Obama is running a campaign driven by “division and attack and hatred” and called on him Wednesday to lift the tone of political discourse. In a close and increasingly acrimonious race, Romney went on national television to say he thinks Obama is “running just to hang onto power, and I think he would do anything in his power” to remain in office. They were some of Romney’s harshest words yet against the president. He was interviewed on CBS television from the battleground state of Ohio, one of fewer than 10 key states that will help decide the November election.

Closing out a three-day bus journey across the Midwestern state of Iowa, Obama did not respond to the Romney attack, but accused his opponent in the Nov. 6 presidential election of “trying to sell this trickledown snake oil before.” Many business-friendly Republicans maintain that creating a better economic climate for top income earners and big corporations produces benefits that spread downward to lowerincome workers. Obama insists that Romney and his newly named vicepresidential running mate, Paul Ryan, have laid out a program that reprises the economic policies of former president George W. Bush: Big tax breaks for the wealthy and cuts to the social safety net for older Americans and the needy. He blamed that economic philosophy for leading the country into the deepest economic downturn since the Great Depression, saying Republicans were responsible for middle- and low-income wages stagnating or falling since the turn of the century.

Fall. Penn State to host child-sex-abuse conference Penn State announced Wednesday that it will host a national child-sex-abuse conference this fall, the latest in a series of initiatives designed to raise awareness of the issue and help the university recover from a devastating molestation scandal. The gathering scheduled for Oct. 29 and 30 in State College will feature academic and clinical experts on childhood molestation and trauma, as well as remarks by retired boxing champ Sugar Ray Leonard and former kidnapping victim Elizabeth Smart, both of whom suffered sexual abuse. “Penn State has made a commitment to becoming a leader in the research, prevention and treatment of child abuse, and this conference is an Caregiving

Noise threatening rare whale population: Study ‘Acoustic smog.’ Researchers find underwater sounds are hindering whales’ ability to communicate Researchers say increasing amounts of underwater noise, largely from shipping traffic, are enveloping rare right whales in “acoustic smog” that makes it harder for them to communicate. The endangered North Atlantic right whale relies far more on sound than sight, using distinctive noises to maintain contact. A paper by federal scientists and Cornell University researchers published Wednesday estimates that in the last 50 years, the area where the whales can effectively communicate in Stellwagen Bank and surrounding waters off Massachusetts has fallen by two-thirds because of the noise. The researchers say the racket is cutting down on the mammals’ ability to gather and share vital information that

Violence. Grenades Iraq as recent death toll rises thrown into Afghan mosque compound

Colorado

Blasts. Bombings kill 10 in Three bomb blasts shortly before sunset Wednesday killed 10 people north of Baghdad in the latest spasm of violence to grip Iraq. The blasts underscored the volatility of the country eight months after the last U.S. troops pulled out. Insurgents, led by the local branch of al-Qaida, are trying to reestablish themselves in their old strongholds and undermine the government. The first bomb went off Wednesday in Baqouba, about 60 kilometres northeast of the Iraqi capital. Police said two civilians and one police officer were killed, and five people were wounded. Minutes later, authorities said, a car bomb exploded at the entrance of the main market in Muqdadiyah, about 90 kilometres north of Baghdad. A second blast struck as police arrived on the scene. Police said the toll for both bombings in the town was seven killed and 26 wounded. The bombs exploded shortly before the ceremonial breaking of the daily fast during the holy month of Ramadan, when families and

Who’s responsible?

• There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the bombings, though large co-ordinated bombings are often the work of al-Qaida’s local franchise. • The al-Qaida offshoot, known as the Islamic State of Iraq, has declared its intentions to reclaim areas from which it was routed by the U.S. and its local allies. It has for years had a hotand-cold relationship with the global terror network’s leadership.

friends gather for a sunset meal. Police said the Muqdadiyah market was crowded with shoppers who were buying last-minute supplies for the “iftar” meal. Baqouba and Muqdadiyah are both located in the province of Diyala, a former stronghold of al-Qaida’s Iraqi branch. The province is home to both Sunni and Shiite Muslims. the associated press

Nearly two dozen Afghan civilians were wounded on Wednesday when two grenades exploded inside a mosque compound and a bicycle bomb blew up in a city market, officials said. The violence came a day after bomb blasts around Afghanistan killed at least 50 people in the deadliest day for civilians this year, as Taliban insurgents and other militants ramp up violence across the country. The Taliban summer offensive coincides with Afghan police and soldiers taking on

more responsibility for security while international forces start to withdraw. Separately, NATO reported that one of its service members was killed Wednesday in an insurgent attack in the east. NATO did not disclose the nationality of the soldier or provide any more details. The U.S. military reported that one of its soldiers died in a roadside bombing Wednesday, also in eastern Afghanistan. So far this year, 286 international troops have been killed in Afghanistan. the associated press

Jasim Mohammed Hassin Ramadon, 22, was charged with sexual assault and being an accessory after he was arrested Tuesday in connection with the July 22 attack.

An Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear program could trigger a bloody monthlong war on multiple fronts, killing hundreds of Israelis or more, the Israeli Cabinet’s civildefence chief warned in an interview published Wednesday. It was the most explicit assessment yet of how the government sees events unfolding in the aftermath of an Israeli attack.

U.S. army general accused of opulence could be demoted Kip Ward. Highestranking officer faces multiple allegations of improperly spending hundreds of thousands of dollars A four-star U.S. army general who was the first head of the new U.S. Africa Command is under investigation and faces possible demotion for allegedly spending hundreds of thousands of dollars improperly on lavish travel, hotels and other items, The Associated Press has learned. Gen. William (Kip) Ward has been under investigation for about 17 months, and Defence Secretary Leon Panetta is expected to make a final decision on the matter before the end of the month, according to several defence officials. The defence officials said Ward is facing numerous allegations that he spent several

hundred thousand dollars allowing unauthorized people, including family members, to fly on government planes, and spent excessive amounts of money on hotel rooms, transportation and other expenses when he travelled as head of Africa Command. A four-star general is the highest rank in the U.S. army.

While the exact amount of alleged misspending was not disclosed, the estimated total raises comparisons with the $823,000 US allegedly spent by dozens of employees of the General Services Administration, who were accused of lavish spending during an October 2010 conference at a Las Vegas resort. Officials described the investigation to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because it is a personnel matter and the report on the investigation has not been released publicly. The Defence Department inspector general has completed its investigation into Ward’s activities, and the issue is under legal review. A request for comment from Ward was not immediately fulfilled Wednesday. Panetta’s options regarding Ward are limited by complex laws and military guidelines. Panetta can demote Ward and force him to retire at a lower rank. the associated press

Almost one-third — 32 per cent — said they believe climate change is happening because of human activity, while 54 per cent said they believe it’s because of human activity and partially due to natural climate variation. Nine per cent believe climate change is occurring due to natural climate variation. Two per cent said they don’t believe climate change is occurring at all. The opinions about the cause of climate change and how to combat it are divided among the provinces and by region. According to the survey, Prairie respondents are least likely to believe that climate change is occurring due to human activity, while residents of Quebec, Atlantic Canada and British Columbia are most likely to hold this belief.

The issue of animal smuggling is prevalent elsewhere in Southeast Asia, the prime funnel for wildlife destined for the world’s No. 1 consumer — China — where many animal parts are consumed in the belief they have medicinal or aphrodisiacal properties. Most recently, a torrent of rhino horn and elephant tusks has poured through Asia from Africa, which suffers the greatest slaughter of these two endangered animals in decades. Vietnam was singled out last month by the World Wide Fund for Nature as the top destination country for the highly prized rhino horn. Tens of thousands of birds, mostly parrots and cockatoos plucked from the wild, are being imported from the Solomon Islands into Singapore, often touted as one of Asia’s least corrupt nations, in violation of CITES, the international convention on wildlife trade. According to TRAFFIC, the international body monitoring wildlife trade, the imported birds are listed as captive-bred, even though it’s known that the Pacific Ocean islands have virtually no breeding facilities.

Top dogs of wildlife trafficking slipping through the cracks Thailand. Kingpins appear to be taking advantage of corrupt cops and officials Squealing tiger cubs stuffed into carry-on bags. Luggage packed with hundreds of squirming tortoises, elephant tusks, even water dragons and American paddlefish. Officials at Thailand’s gateway airport proudly tick off the illegally trafficked wildlife they have seized over the past two years. But Thai and foreign law-enforcement officers tell another story: Officials working-handin-hand with traffickers ensure that other shipments through Suvarnabhumi International Airport are whisked off before they even reach customs inspection. It’s a murky mix. A 10-fold increase in wildlife law-enforcement actions, including seizures, has been reported in the past six years in Southeast Asia. Yet the trade’s Mr. Bigs, masterful in taking advantage of pervasive corruption, appear immune to arrest and continue

Shady deals

• Officials interviewed at the airport, one of Asia’s busiest, acknowledge corruption exists but downplay its extent. • Another shortfall in the system: The multiple agencies that often don’t co-operate or share information. • Each agency has a role at Bangkok’s airport: The police, national parks department, customs, immigration, military and CITES.

to orchestrate the decimation of wildlife in Thailand, the region and beyond. And Southeast Asia’s honest cops don’t have it easy. “It is very difficult for me. I have to sit among people who are both good and some who are corrupt,” says Chanvut Vajrabukka, a retired police general. “If I say, ‘You have to go out and arrest that target,’ some in the room may well

warn them,” says Chanvut, who now advises ASEAN-WEN, the regional wildlife enforcement network. Several kingpins, says wildlife activist Steven Galster, have recently been confronted by authorities, “but in the end, good uniforms are running into, and often stopped by, bad uniforms. It’s like a bad Hollywood cop movie.” Recently, Lt. Col. Adtaphon Sudsai, a highly regarded, outspoken officer, was instructed to lay off what had seemed an open-and-shut case he cracked four years ago when he penetrated a gang along the Mekong River smuggling pangolin. This led him to Daoreung Chaimas, alleged by conservation groups to be one of Southeast Asia’s biggest tiger dealers. Despite being arrested twice, having her own assistants testify against her and DNA testing that showed two cubs were not offsprings from zoo-bred parents as she claimed, Daoreung remains free and the case may never go to the prosecutor’s office. Daoreung is the spouse of a police officer. The Associated Press

Women virtually untapped in beer market: BMO report Brewing competition. They’re looking for lowcal, light beer: Expert

Samsung shooting for Apple Baz Luhrmann, a movie writer, director and producer, discusses on Wednesday at a news conference how he has recently been using a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. Samsung Electronics Co.’s release is the latest shot at the dominance of Apple’s iPad with a tablet equipped with a digital pen and a faster processor at the same price tag. Mark Lennihan/the associated press

It’s been mostly a man’s world when it comes to beer. Women are a big, untapped market for North American beer brewers as they face more competition from wine and spirits and specialty craft brewers, says a Bank of Montreal report. “At this juncture, 80 per cent of beer sales are sold to guys,” said David Rinneard, national manager of agriculture at BMO. What women want is lowcalorie, lighter-flavoured beer

and beer-based beverages, he said Wednesday from Toronto. Brewers will appeal to female sensibilities with these niche products along with commercials and marketing targeted at women, he said. “They’re making a diligent effort and attempt to go after that new market.” Calories also are “unquestionably” a factor in getting women to drink more beer, Rinneard said, adding men can also be calorie conscious. Traditionally, women weren’t pursued by brewers because they didn’t need the market with the “prosperous” and defined market of male beer drinkers, Rinneard said.

Beer for women is starting to make some inroads. “Chick Beer” is an American craftbrewed beer specifically aimed at women and boasts just 97 calories, 3.5 carbs per bottle and 4.2 per cent alcohol. For the calorie conscious, there’s Molson Ultra with 2.5 grams of carbohydrates, 97 calories and 4.5 per cent alcohol. As wine and spirits affect beer consumption and the population ages, brewers have to look for other growth opportunities, Rinneard said. “In essence, they’re competing for a defined or limited amount of stomach space, if you can call it that.”

Per-capita consumption of beer remains flat in Canada and has fallen in the United States, the bank’s study said. • One of the challenges ahead for the North American brewing industry is the scorching temperatures this summer that could push up prices. • Prices for barley, wheat and, to a lesser extent, hops have been going up.

IEA. Asian market looking for natural gas

Patent infringement

Lululemon takes Calvin Klein to court Trendy yoga-gear maker Lululemon Athletica Inc.’s signature body-hugging pants have become so integral to the popularity of the brand that it is suing Calvin Klein Inc. for patent infringement over a very similar design. Lululemon Athletica has filed a lawsuit in the U.S. accusing PVH Corp.’s Calvin Klein and G-III Apparel Group Ltd. of infringing on three different patents covering a specific overlapping style of waistband.

Canada has the potential to become a key energy supplier to Asia, but the executive director of the International Energy Agency says it will be crucial to get the public on board. The days when the United States could absorb unlimited supplies of Canadian natural gas are over as relatively new drilling techniques unlock its own vast domestic supplies, Maria van der Hoeven told a Calgary business audience Wednesday. “In fact, the future of Canadian gas is in Asia,” she said. “Given the uncertain prospects of nuclear power in Japan, the political drive to clean up the Chinese energy system and the acute energy shortages in India, Asia is intensely looking for energy supplies.” A number of companies plan to pipe gas from northeastern British Columbia plants to the coast, where it would be cooled into a liquid state and shipped across the Pacific by tanker. Annual gas demand growth in China is five times higher than Canada’s decline in gas exports to the United States over the next five years, she said. the canadian press

Australia has urged other countries to adopt the world’s toughest law on cigarette promotion, which was upheld Wednesday by the country’s highest court and prohibits tobacco companies from displaying their logos on cigarette packs.

The High Court rejected a challenge by tobacco companies who argued the value of their trademarks will be destroyed if they are no longer able to display their distinctive colours, brand designs and logos on cigarette packs. Starting in December,

packs will instead come in a uniformly drab shade of olive and feature graphic health warnings and images of cancer-riddled mouths, blinded eyeballs and sickly children. The government hopes the new packs will make smoking as unglamorous as possible.

“Governments can take on big tobacco and win and it’s worth countries looking again at what the next appropriate step is for them,” Attorney General Nicola Roxon told reporters after the court ruling. the associated press

study says we’re silly gooses A couple of enlightening new surveys released this month John Mazerolle show that many Canadians are metronews.ca/voices/ oblivious, dog-like fools. None he-says of the articles written about the studies started that way, mind you, but I think the news was buried. What the stories did say was that many Canadians — myself included — manage their money with all the success of Research in Motion. Roughly half of us have no emergency savings, and a good chunk of young people plan to retire early but haven’t actually started saving, you know, money. Some of the reasons youth gave for not saving are a little baffling, as if I just made them up or something: • 40 per cent: Plan to cash out their World of Warcraft gold, ignoring the fact that Mario coins have barely appreciated in value. • 33 per cent: Have “liked” Retirement Savings on Facebook multiple times and don’t know what more they could possibly do. • Five per cent: Have access to the Fox News channel, assumed socialist welfare state would cover costs. Frankly, a survey saying we’re bad with our money Freedom fuddled isn’t that shocking. What’s shocking is a group of people “Frankly, a survey so out of touch that they saying we’re bad with believe they’re going to retire early despite having no money. our money isn’t that It’d be one thing for a shocking. What’s survey to show, say, that shocking is a group of Canadians are overweight and But if the same people so out of touch unhealthy. survey showed that obese, that they believe they’re chain-smoking Canadians had plans to compete at Rio, we going to retire early might start questioning our despite having no mental-health system, too. money.” Not that I can be too critical. I personally always keep several thousand dollars in my mattress for when the McRib comes back. But other than that, I am a typical, cash-confused Canadian. My emergency savings consist of a jar in my apartment where I throw pennies, so that once it’s full enough I can complain about how useless pennies are. A penny saved is a waste of time, I always say. As for retirement, I plan to die retroactively at 27. In other words, I feel Canada’s financial pain. Or more specifically, I don’t feel it, which is the problem. This is where we’re like dogs. If you have a dog and he eats your food while you’re out, you know it’s pointless to discipline him because the crime and the punishment are too far apart, and he’ll wonder why you’re suddenly upset that he’s licking himself for the 27th time that day. As with global warming, we don’t see the negative consequences right away so we can’t do the right thing. It would be helpful if ATMs jolted you with 10,000 volts at every withdrawal, or if our credit cards were designed to give us nasty paper cuts. Maybe if the bank teller scratched us behind the ear and told us we were good every time we made a deposit, we’d do it more often. If any banks start doing this, please let me know. I’ll be in your debt. And if my track Want to plan for retirement with record holds, most no money? Ha! istock likely forever.

Not as strong but impact worsened by poor forecasting; it killed over 1,300 people when it struck in 2008.

Coping methods

Fringe gives 19-year-old a shot through B.Y.O.V.

Polite Boys. Shown in a hotel for only six audience members a night, dark play feels especially intimate JENNIFER LARAWAY

Jennifer Laraway edmonton@metronews.ca

How many 19 year olds do you know who are starting their own production company? Yeah… me either. But, Olivia Latta had no other choice if she wanted to make her Fringe Festival debut, and like all great ideas, after a few drinks with her friends, the production company Mischief Managed was born. “In all seriousness, we wanted a name that set us. By the end of the festival, we want people to know Mischief Managed as up close and personal performances,” she said. The urgent need to set up shop came from Latta’s application to the Fringe’s Bring Your Own Venue (B.Y.O.V.) program. B.Y.O.V. enables artists to do sitespecific performances using spaces other than officiallysanctioned Fringe venues. For Latta and Mischief Managed co-founders Jordan Bloemen and Molly Staley that meant they had a month to turn around a full scale production and submit an application before the Fringe’s deadline. “Molly had this concept to do a play where the audience was looking through a hotel window and I couldn’t get the concept out of my head,” reveals Latta. “It just so happened Jordan had

been working on a script involving a hotel room.” At first, it seemed to be destiny, but the trio soon encountered their fair share of hurdles. “We approached various hotels but a lot weren’t friendly towards our idea,” Latta says. “We needed to find someone to play game.” Proving there are no accidents in the universe, the Metterra Hotel on Whyte

had just hired a new manager who was enthusiastic about the group’s concept. With the B.Y.O.V. application approved, Mischief Mayhem finally had the green light to put on Polite Boys, a slow-burning, Hitchcock style drama that examines a forced intimacy between two strangers and the breakdown of a man under the weight of his own history. In the wake of a

family tragedy, the upscale suite sets the stage for a confessional and the intimate witnessing of a spiralling sanity. Polite Boys opens August 17 with various performance times for weekday and weekend shows. Only six seats per show are available. General tickets are $12.50 and available from the Fringe’s Central Box Office or by calling 780-409-1910.

‘I just had to do or die’ Rapper 2 Chainz looks to build on revived career with solo debut and top-level collaborations

handout

Rapper 2 Chainz took some major risks two years ago when he bolted from Ludacris’ Disturbing tha Peace record label, changed his stage name and left a group to pursue a solo career. The Atlanta-based rapper, initially known as Tity Boi, scored big as a member of the rap duo Playaz Circle with the Lil Wayne-assisted 2007 hit Duffle Bag Boy. But the group’s debut album barely sold 100,000 units, and their follow-up, 2009’s Flight 360: The Takeoff, debuted at No. 74 and didn’t launch any hits. “I figured if I was going to do bad, I’d rather be bad all by myself,” 2 Chainz said in a recent interview. “Even when I had a deal, I was paying out of pocket ... I was already funding videos, doing my mixtapes. You rarely get money out of labels, except for when they open up a budget for a project. Other than that, it’s a do-or-die type

thing. So, for me, I just had to do or die.” Taking the risk to go solo is finally paying off. A pair of successful mixtapes helped 2 Chainz consistently book concert shows and land guest appearances on hit songs, including Kanye West’s No. 1 rap smash Mercy and the Nicki Minaj single Beez in the Trap. He also joined Minaj on her U.S. summer tour. Now the rapper is hoping to capture audiences on his own with his solo debut, Based on a T.R.U. Story, released this week. The first single, No Lie, features Drake and is currently No. 1 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop songs chart. The album features top acts like West, Minaj, Lil Wayne, John Legend, Scarface and The-Dream. You had a sliver of limelight in 2007, you fell into obscurity and now you’re rising — a rare sequence

for a rapper’s career. What do you attribute to your revived image? I just worked harder than anyone else. There was no formula. I can’t tell you a particular story or a contract I signed. My mind-set of just grinding it out, a lot of sleepless nights, thinking and praying a lot. The number of cities I was able to play in. The timing. Those combinations have helped get me to where I’m at today. You had a lot control as an independent rapper. Now, you’re signed to Def Jam Records. Why make the move when you were achieving so much independently? When I left DTP, I wanted to do things on my own. I wanted people to respect my mind. I wanted people to respect some of my ideas. The independent route was the best move for me. But I think I’ve maximized everything I could do independently.

I’ve done everything out the mixtape market. I think getting the big machine behind you is the next stage when you’ve maximized the independent level. How did you end up collaborating with A-List acts like Kanye West, Drake and Nicki Minaj? I had already been communicating with them. I’ve known Drake for five years. Me and Drake were on tour with Lil Wayne when Drake was fresh off the TV show (Degrassi: The Next Generation). A lot of people don’t know that. I’ve known Lil Wayne for a decade. I’ve had respect with them and in the hip-hop community. I just had to figure out a way to connect the dots with them and the fans. With the community, I was cool. I was networking, hooked up with DJs. I was just being a people’s person. the associated press

Hating the good guy the norm on Boss Drama series. Troy Garity clashes with series star Kelsey Grammer in a show set in Chicago’s political minefields Troy Garity has identified four pillars of American life: the Government, the People, People with Money, and the Press. At least, this theory serves him nicely on his Starz drama series Boss, where Garity plays a crusading newspaper editor who locks

horns with the towering title character, Chicago Mayor Tom Kane, portrayed by series star Kelsey Grammer. Garity relishes his role as Sam Miller, who, promoted from reporter for the scrappy Sentinel last season, now runs it. “I’m a good source of agitation and conflict with our hero, the evil mayor,” he says, even as he marvels at Kane’s charismatic hold on the show’s fictitious citizens and viewers alike. “I’m actually doing the right thing,” declares Garity. “But I’m vilified by the audience because I’m trying

Twits on Twitter. Charlie Sheen returns to social media to some fanfare

Charlie Sheen is back on Twitter and TV. Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images

CASSANDRA GARRISON Metro World News

He couldn’t stay away for more than a month. Though our favourite tiger-blood-filled celeb made a highly publicized exit from Twitter, he’s re-joined the social network just in time to promote himself. Charlie Sheen showed signs of life Wednesday on his Twitter account, which has more than 4 million followers, to let everyone know his father will be guest starring this Thursday on his show Anger Management — and, of course, we should all tune in. “It’s on! My pop guest stars Thursday on Anger Management. Watch my dad show up as my dad 9:30 p.m. on FX. Best yet!!” Sheen tweeted.

He attached a photo of himself with his dad, Martin Sheen. The two are yukking it up over a couple of beers. Sheen hasn’t tweeted since July 13 when he told followers, “reach for the stars everyone. dogspeed cadre. c out.” The cryptic message mystified fans who eventually interpreted the tweet as Sheen’s resignation from Twitter. The Twittersphere rejoiced at his re-entry today. “Charlie!!!! We love you here in Greece!!!” one fan tweeted. “omg your back on! Watched Anger Management yest & was great!!” another said. But if Sheen wants to keep his reputation as a High Priest Vatican Assassin Warlock, he’s going to have to tweet better than this.

to take down the person the audience is rooting for.” In short, Sam Miller has a worthy adversary. As Boss begins its second season (Friday), Kane remains a titanic figure of charm, defiance and corruption. But at the same time human frailties haunt him, mostly in the form of a degenerative brain disease he is hellbent on hiding from the world. “We’re taught that we

need to be in control of our lives,” says Garity. “But however ruthless you are in cementing that control, there’s always a higher power that can put you on bended knee.” So the central question of Boss is this: How much longer can Tom Kane prevail, and what toxic cocktail of forces — his illness, his political foes, moneyed interests who feel he’s betrayed them, his fractious family, the dogged

Sam Miller — will finally spell his downfall? “The mayor’s under siege from all fronts,” says Garity, almost as pleased with this glorious foil as with the actor who plays him (Grammer “is so professional and, considering how dark the show is, so light and giving.”) As it happens, Garity has firsthand knowledge of the political world and the glare of the press that inform Boss.

Though he bears the surname of his paternal grandmother, his mother is Jane Fonda, the Oscar-winning actress, political activist and lifelong lightning-rod for the right. His father is Tom Hayden — activist, former California state senator and one-time member of the Chicago Eight. “My father thinks I’m playing him,” laughs Garity. The Associated Press

No sequel for Stewart While Rupert Sanders might still get to direct a follow-up to Snow White and the Huntsman, star Kristen Stewart reportedly won’t be taking part, according to the Hollywood Reporter. While a planned second film was set to follow Stewart’s Snow White, studio Universal is now re-conceiving the sequel as a spin-off focusing on Chris Hemsworth’s Huntsman. “The studio is currently exploring options to continue the franchise,” a Universal spokeswoman says. Sanders and Stewart made headlines when they acknowledged they’d been having an affair last month, though it’s unclear if that situation had anything to do with the studio’s decision.

Small space design tricks

Design centre. Making a tiny condo look bigger DESIGN CENTRE

Karl Lohnes home@metronews.ca

Round table, $1485, casalife.com A 42-54” round pedestal table is the perfect choice for in an open concept dining area. The round shape is easy to walk around (no corners to bump into) and the pedestal base offers more flexibility when seating guests. Casa Life’s TAHA table fits the bill; its glass top and shiny stainless base reflects light and offers up a modern yet airy appearance.

I live in a small, open-space condo. The living, dining room and kitchen feels like one room. How do I define each space? Can I do it with a few different paint colours? If you want to make a small, open space feel larger, paint it all one neutral colour. Keep in mind that you are painting one large room so the colour has to be rich enough to hold the entire space together. Use furniture arranging, art, mirrors and rugs to help define individual areas. Go neutral with the longterm items like paint colour, soft furnishings and a dining table while add trend-setting colours in pillows, area rug and artwork.

CedricArmChair,$549,UrbanBarn.com Forego the traditional sofa and chairs for the living room and consider 4 matching club chairs for the space; creating a casual lounge feel will offer up more flexibility when you want to rearrange the room. The Cedric chair is a great choice as it is comfy and has trendy mid-century modern details like exposed wood and button detailing.

Tall leaning mirror In long, narrow spaces a tall sturdy mirror will help visually widen the area and reflect natural light deep into a dark area. Place a large mirror behind the dining table to help open up a tight area. There’s no better value than Ikea’s Mongstad mirror; at over three feet by six feet in size, the hefty frame can be painted a trendy colour or left its neutral brown/black. Mongstad Mirror, $99, Ikea.ca

Warm grey paint colour

Zak Ryg, $1,250, crateandbarrel.com

Choose a trend-setting warm grey paint colour as a neutral backdrop to your furnishings and artwork. Don’t be afraid to choose a darker tone. Benjamin Moore’s Museum Piece CSP-40 is an excellent colour that will look good with almost anything.

A rug that acts as artwork will not only add colour and personality to a space but help ground and define the living area. The most popular sized rug is an 8x10 which always seems to fit into any room setting. The Zak rug from Crate and Barrel adds many trend colours to pull from.

Modern take on Aboriginal eats

Three Sister Relish. A delicious condiment

Rich Francis, a graduate of the Stratford Chef School, veteran of Toronto’s Splendido and current proprietor of Aboriginal Culinary Concepts in London, Ont., creates what he calls Modern Aboriginal Cuisine. By creatively producing a traditional dining experience using Indigenous commodities, culture, tradition and modern cooking techniques, Modern Aboriginal Cuisine, says Francis, “is an emotion rather than a concept.” He shares his recipe for Rosehip Crusted Duck Breast and Sweetgrass Lidii Smoked Niagara Peaches.

1. In a stainless steel bowl, combine corn, zucchini, onions, peppers and salt, and mix well. Cover and let stand for 6 hours. Strain mixture, rinse and let drain.

1.

Jus: In saucepan over high heat add oil, when shimmers add unseasoned duck bones and trim. Brown; add crushed garlic, juniper, pepper. Cook 1 min. and add ice cubes then cover bones with water, making sure all is submerged. Bring to boil. Turn heat down to a slow boil, reduce to 1 cup of jus skimming all the while. Strain. Season. Set aside.

2.

Peaches: Soak sweetgrass and lidii in water, briefly. Strain; put in wok over medium high heat. When smoke rises, place bamboo steamer with peaches inside, covered. Smoke on stove top for 20 mins. Set aside covered and off the heat.

3.

Ingredients • 2 tbsp grapeseed oil • 1 lb duck bones and trim • 1/2 head of garlic crushed, skin left on • 1 tsp juniper • 5 whole black pepper corns • 1 cup ice cubes • 3 cup ice water

2. In a stainless steel pot, combine zucchini mixture with beans, sugar, vinegar, tumeric, nutmeg, jalapeno and horseradish. Bring to a simmer and allow it to do so for 40 to 50 minutes, stirring occasionally. Do not let all the liquid evaporate.

• 1 cup Lidii, needles and stems • 1 bunch of sweetgrass, dried • 2 ripe peaches, blanched, skinned and quartered, pit removed • 1 tbsp dried and crushed rosehip • 1 tsp juniper, ground • 1 duck breast, skin side scored • 1 clove garlic, crushed • 1 sprig wild sage • 1 tbsp unsalted butter, cubed • 1 tbsp peach jam • 1 tbsp brown butter • salt and pepper • Thinly sliced Musk Ox prosciutto • 1/4 cup soft peppery herbs (ie; arugula, pepper cress) • Dandelion vinaigrette

3.

Sanitize jars, lids and all canning instruments. Then fill hot jars with hot relish, leaving about 1 cm of headspace. Remove any air

Score duck skin. Liberally season both sides. Crust with rosehip mixture. Place duck in cold well seasoned fry pan, over medium high heat. Add crushed garlic and wild sage rendering out some fat and basting all while. Add butter and roast 5 minutes. Rest breast for 20 mins. before carving. (Note: duck is cooked entirely skin side down.)

4. To finish jus, over medium

heat bring jus up to temp. Add the peach preserve. Cook out for a minute or 2. Off the heat, whisk in the brown butter and allowing the sauce to ‘break’.

Adjust seasoning, Set aside in a warm place. The natural pectin will thicken the sauce to the consistency you want.

5.

Drizzle a small amount of jus any way you see fit over the plate surface. Cut the duck breast length wise in 1/4 inch strips, placing three stripes vertically, but staggered. Thinly slice the 1/2 a peach, fold and arrange among the duck. Lightly sauce the duck. Arrange the prosciutto and herbs throughout the dish.

“While the news is devastating, I have much to be thankful for.” Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba, who retired from soccer Wednesday. Muamba suffered a cardiac arrest during a game in March and made his decision after medical consultations last week.

Mitchell’s appeal on ban falls flat B.C. Lions defensive lineman Khalif Mitchell will serve a two-game suspension for hyperextending another player’s arm in a game last month. An arbitrator has upheld the two-game ban, originally handed down July 23.

Mitchell appealed the decision and has remained in the Lions lineup. The incident occurred in a July 22 game between Edmonton and B.C., when Mitchell violently pulled on the arm of Edmonton offensive lineman Simeon Rottier. The suspension is significant by CFL standards because it’s the longest ever issued by commissioner Mark Cohon. THE CANADIAN PRESS

NHL and players’ union still worlds apart, says Bettman CBA. ‘Number of issues’ still unresolved with time running out With one month to go before the NHL’s collective bargaining agreement expires, the league and players seem no closer to a deal than when talks began in June. In fact, the divide may have grown even further. It took commissioner Gary Bettman less than 24 hours to conclude that the first proposal from the NHL Players’ Association held little appeal for the owners. “There’s still a wide gap between us with not much time to go,” Bettman said Wednesday in Toronto. “I do think it’s fair to say that the sides are still apart — far apart — and have different views of the world and the issues,” he added. The current CBA expires Sept. 15 and Bettman has made it clear that the league will enQuoted

act a work stoppage if a new deal isn’t in place by then. On Tuesday, the union put forth a proposal that included a smaller percentage of revenues for players over the next three seasons in exchange for an expanded revenue-sharing program to help struggling teams. The NHLPA estimated that players would be giving up $465 million US in salaries if the league continued on its pace of growth each season. However, that math didn’t add up for the league. “I think it’s fair to say that we value the proposal and what it means in terms of its economics differently than the players’ association does,” said Bettman. “I think there still are a number of issues where we’re looking at the world differently. I’m not sure that there has yet been a recognition of the economics in our world — and I mean the greater world and the sports industry, taking into account what recently happened with the NFL and the NBA.” Both of those leagues went through recent lockouts before ultimately seeing the players’ share in revenue reduced. The NHL’s initial proposal called for a significant reduction from 57 per cent to 43 per cent, when factoring in changes to the way revenue is calculated. T:4.921”

The strong words Wednesday left many feeling like another lockout is ahead. Donald Fehr, the NHLPA’s executive director, was disappointed the owners weren’t more receptive to what he viewed as significant concessions in the NHLPA’s offer. “There’s a pretty substantial monetary gulf which is there and when you start with the proposal the owners made, how could it be otherwise?” said Fehr. “I mean, consider what the proposal was: It is ‘Let’s move salaries back to where they were before the (2004-05) lockout started, back to the last time.’ “‘We had a 24 per cent reduction last time, let’s have another one.’ That was the proposal. That’s what creates the gulf.” No meaningful negotiation sessions are planned until Aug. 22. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Giants’ Cabrera says he’s ‘deeply sorry’ after big ban MLB. NL’s top hitter to sit 50 games for testosterone use Melky Cabrera was suspended 50 games Wednesday following a positive test for testosterone, putting an abrupt end to what had been an MVP-calibre regular season and throwing the San Francisco Giants’ playoff hopes into doubt. Cabrera leads with National League in hitting. His penalty was the first for a highprofile player since last year’s NL MVP, Ryan Braun, had his suspension overturned by an arbitrator last winter. The Braun case led to revisions in the drug agreement between owners and the players’ association to better define procedures for handling urine samples. “My positive test was the result of my use of a substance I should not have used,” Cabrera said in a statement released by the union. “I accept my suspension under

the Joint Drug Program and I will try to move on with my life. I am deeply sorry for my mistake and I apologize to my teammates, to the San Francisco Giants organization and to the fans for letting them down.”

Cabrera is batting .346 with 11 home runs and 60 RBIs in his first season with San Francisco and is five hits shy of 1,000 in his big league career. Flashing bright orange spikes, he singled and hit a two-run homer last month in

the National League’s 8-0 win in the all-star game, earning MVP honours and securing home-field advantage for the World Series. Cabrera could still win the NL batting title. He has 501 plate appearances, one less than the minimum required to win a batting championship for a player on a team playing 162 games. However, under 10.22(a) of the Official Baseball Rules, he would win the batting title if an extra hitless at-bat is added to his average and it remains higher than that of any other qualifying player.

MLB. Hernandez finds perfection against Rays King Felix now has a crowning achievement. Felix Hernandez pitched the Seattle Mariners’ first perfect game and the 23rd in baseball history, overpowering the Tampa Bay Rays in a brilliant 1-0 victory Wednesday. The 2010 AL Cy Young Award winner has long talked of his desire to achieve pitching perfection. He finally accomplished it against the Rays, striking out the side twice and finishing with 12 strikeouts. It was the third perfect game in baseball this season — a first — joining gems by Chicago’s Philip Humber against the Mariners in April and San Francisco’s Matt Cain versus Houston in June. More than half of all perfectos — 12 — have come in the last 25 seasons. This also was the sixth nohitter in the majors this season, three of them at Safeco Field. Humber threw his gem in Seattle, then six Mariners pitchers combined to hold the Los Angeles Dodgers hitless at the park on June 8. For the Rays, it was an alltoo-familiar feeling. This was the third time in four seasons they had a perfect game pitched against them, follow-

ing efforts by Dallas Braden in 2010 and Mark Buehrle in 2009. “I don’t have any words to explain this,” Hernandez said to the crowd, speaking on the field after the final out. “I’ve been working so hard to throw one and today is for you guys.” With one out to go, Sean Rodriguez got ahead 2-0 in the count. Hernandez came back with two straight breaking balls for strikes and ended perfection with a called third strike on his 113th pitch. the associated press

Horoscopes

By michael WiEsenberg

Crossword: It’s a Puzzle

Libra

Aries

Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 What you are offered today may fall short of what you desire but the planets indicate it is the best deal you are going to get, so you might as well take it. And don’t forget to show your appreciation.

March 21 - April 20 Don’t cut corners or disobey rules, especially on the work front where colleagues and employers won’t be too happy if you do the opposite of what is expected of you. There’s a lot at stake — don’t mess up.

Taurus

Scorpio

Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 Delays of one sort or another are likely today but don’t let that stop you getting out into the world and meeting new people. In most situations, a smile and a kind word will get you past obstructions.

April 21 - May 21 Watch what you say today because you may be tempted to go over the top and let slip something you will later regret. Also, make no accusations that you cannot back up with rock solid facts and figures.

Sagittarius

Gemini

Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 Few things are as bad as they first appear to be and if you keep that thought in mind today you won’t go far wrong. A temporary setback is just that so don’t make a huge deal of it.

May 22 - June 21 Your financial situation is not so bad that you have to cash in your stocks and shares or sell off your assets. However, your everyday spending habits do need some attention. Where can you make savings?

Capricorn

Cancer

Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 It may be easy to get annoyed with people who cannot live up to your standards, but if you do it will only make matters worse. Stay calm and realize that, for some, your standards are impossibly high.

June 22 - July 23 Petty arguments could very easily get out of hand today, so watch your temper. Others may be unjustly critical of what you are doing but the best way to deal with them is just to ignore them.

Aquarius

Leo

Jan. 21 - Feb. 19 You would be wise to think twice before acting on a hunch today, especially on the work front where your reputation could take a nose-dive if you make the wrong call. Let’s others take the risks.

July 24 - Aug. 23 You seem to be out of touch with what is going on around you at the moment but that’s no bad thing. If you get involved with other people’s battles, you could end up as one of the wounded.

Virgo

Feb. 20 - March 20 You should be doing more. You should be making better use of the talents you were born with. What you need to remember is that each and every day can be a new beginning. Forget about yesterday — act today. SALLY BROMPTON
