Edmonton’s downtown arena could finally be under construction this summer after city council approved a new deal with the Katz group Wednesday. In a 10-3 vote, city council approved the $601-million project, which will include an LRT connection and a Wintergarden pedway. Mayor Stephen Mandel said this deal would support the Oilers and improve downtown. “We need a downtown that is more vibrant and this project will do that,” he said. “We have to build a city and this is a big part of building this city.” The city will pay $219 million for the project, with the Katz Group contributing $143 million, $125 million from a ticket surcharge and $100 million from the provincial government, which has not yet agreed to that commitment.

Big hole

Provincial cash missing from deal

While there was much jubilation about a new deal on the downtown arena, there’s still a $100-million hole in the agreement. As in previous versions of the deal, the new arrangement sees $100 million coming from the provincial or federal government to help build the facility. The lack of funds raised some significant concerns among councillors. “This deal is not even supposed to proceed without provincial money and we don’t have that after two years of begging for it,” said Coun. Kerry Diotte who voted against the deal. Coun. Tony Caterina voted for the deal, but implored city administration and the Katz Group to come up with a plan B in case the province didn’t come to the plate. Mayor Stephen Mandel said he has discussed the issue with provincial politicians and he is optimistic. “Minister (Doug) Horner said over the Christmas season that he will hopefully come up with a program,” he said. Horner’s spokesperson Robyn Cochrane said there would be no direct funding for the arena, but the province is considering a program to help with special community projects. She could not say if it would be in the budget. “Our government is working through some difficult financial times so at this point we can’t say whether it will be included in budget,” Cochrane said.

Edmonton Oilers Shawn Horcoff and Taylor Hall show their support for the arena deal at council on Wednesday. The new deal could see construction begin on the downtown arena project as early as this summer. RYAN TUMILTY/METRO

New deal resurrects city’s arena project Done. Project a major investment by city RYAN TUMILTY

ryan.tumilty@metronews.ca

The deal that resurrected Edmonton’s downtown arena Wednesday will keep the Oilers in town for the next 35 years at least, but will come with a major city investment. The deal, which came before council after the city restarted negotiations in December, is largely similar to the one they first struck in October 2011. Among the changes are

the Katz group will now receive $1.5 million annually for major capital maintenance costs in the building, from the proposed ticket tax. The deal also includes a provision for $2 million annually in advertising from the City of Edmonton, while revenue from the naming rights for the building will go to the Katz group. Under the deal the city will pay $219 million for the project, mostly from increased tax revenues related to the arena development. The Katz Group is on the hook for $143 million, a ticket surcharge will cover $125 million and other levels of government will contribute

• The $601 million price tag includes the arena, a community rink, an LRT connection, the Winter garden pedway and a pedestrian corridor. • The deal envisions opening the arena in time for the 2016-2017 NHL season, which would mean the Oilers would have to extend their lease at Rexall.

that the city will be out of tax dollars, but he reiterated that taxes will not be raised for this project. Coun. Linda Sloan said this deal shut doors for the city, because it meant there was less money for the city to use in the future. “There’s an opportunity cost, public dollars will be used for a private business,” she said. Coun. Kim Krushell said when council dug its heels in last October, it sent the right message. “They pushed us and we pushed back and when both parties are not completely satisfied that’s when you normally get a good deal,” she said.

It could take the province longer than promised to build 50 new schools and renovate 70 more. Education Minister Jeff Johnson said the premier’s election promise to build and modernize schools over four years may not happen. “It’s possible — and I can’t say for sure yet because the budget’s not done — but it’s possible that the things that

we were hoping to get done in four years may take five years, take six years,” Johnson said, following a Tuesday evening telephone conference with school councils. That’s concerning for Mike Lanteigne, chair of Esther Starkman School’s parent council. “The need for new schools couldn’t be any more urgent than it is now,” he said. Last year, before the

school received portables to house more students, the school was “bursting at the seams,” Lanteigne said. “We used our school library, our auxiliary gymnasium, our staff room and our industrial art room as homerooms for children. The other options were using the Mac’s and 7-Eleven down the road.” Edmonton Public School Board chair Sarah Hoffman said principals across the district have gotten creative when it comes to finding space. “We’ve had a number of schools that have had to convert staff room space to classroom space,” Hoffman said.

Three almost brand-new Edmonton schools are already in need of more space to house students. On Tuesday, trustees with the Edmonton Public School Board (EPSB) approved a recommendation to spend up to $3.2 million from the district’s capital reserve fund to purchase new modular classrooms and relocate eight portable classrooms. The use of capital reserve funds to address capacity issues is not sustainable, said board chair Sarah Hoffman, in a release. “The board decided that approving the use of these funds was the right thing to do, as we had a responsibility to address the capacity challen-

ges at these schools,” she said. A. Blair McPherson school will receive six portable classrooms and Dr. Donald Massey school will receive two portable classrooms and four modular classrooms. Both schools opened in 2010. Dr. Michael Strembitsky school, which opened in 2012 and is projected to be over capacity by September 2013, will receive two new modular classrooms. Jane Sterling, spokesperson for the EPSB, said earlier this week that it was overwhelming how many families were moving into neighbourhoods with new schools. “If you go to one of these new schools in the morning

Pay. Council votes to keep salary 1/3 tax-free City councillors rejected a move to eliminate the tax-free portion of their salaries, noting it would only cost local taxpayers more. The initial recommendation came from an independent committee’s review of council salaries. Council salaries are currently one-third taxfree and the committee felt it was less transparent. Councillors noted that eliminating the tax-free portion would cost $286,000 — money that would go to the federal and provincial governments at a cost to Edmonton taxpayers. “Just to prove a point I don’t think is worth a couple hundred thousand bucks,” said Coun. Don Iveson. Thursday

Prof in search of ‘privacy compliant’ surveillance cam Cash reward. Privacy laws require businesses filming public areas to inform people that they are being recorded jessica smith

Metro in Toronto

A University of Toronto professor is offering $100 to anyone who can show him a surveillance camera, operated by a business, that complies with Canada’s privacy laws — but it isn’t an easy C-note. “We thought this is something that calls for more attention, so we wanted to document the problem, without having to do all the documentation ourselves,” said Prof. Andrew Clement, co-ordinator of the Information Policy Research Program at the University of Toronto. Privacy laws differ between provinces and between the

public and private sector, but Canada’s privacy commission has summed up the requirements businesses have when recording people’s images in a public area, said Clement. One requirement that is visibly lacking in most cases is a sign informing people that they are being recorded. The signs should also say what the purpose of the surveillance is and who to contact about it, said Clement. After two years of offering the $100 reward to his stu-

dents for educational purposes, he’s now opening it up to the entire country. Anyone can submit photos and descriptions of surveillance cameras to surveillancerights.ca and through an Android smartphone app, which is at the Beta-testing stage, available through the app store Google Play. In some cases, it can be hard to tell who is responsible for a camera, which in itself is a problem, said Clement. “We have a right to know who’s collecting our information; that’s fundamental to our pri-

vacy legislation,” he said. “If you don’t see a sign, it’s clearly not compliant with privacy laws around informed consent.” That law does not apply to privately owned and used cameras, such as those used in home security systems.

On Wednesday, Metro contacted a large property management company and a luxury hotel chain, both of which have surveillance cameras looking out on downtown Toronto streets. Neither responded to questions around the cameras’ compliance by the end of the day.

Big brother

Why you should care Clement believes informing people when they are being recorded is important now, but will become more important in the future as technology develops. Video surveillance is also an issue for people who don’t want their intimate moments recorded and marginalized people, when under surveillance, will more likely be treated with suspicion, he said. “A growing concern, which hasn’t emerged much yet, is when analytic capabilities are being built into these cameras — facial recognition or other kinds of tracking,” he said. Technology is being developed that can track people’s information and link it to their image, said Clement, adding now is the time for people to insist on their privacy rights.

Boeing 787 Dreamliner

U.S. officials defend review of plane battery mishaps Obama administration officials struggled Wednesday to defend their initial statements that the Boeing 787 Dreamliner is safe while promising a transparent probe of mishaps involving the aircraft’s batteries. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood stood by his Jan. 11 assertion that the

Attack?

787, Boeing’s newest and most technologically advanced airliner, was safe. At that time, LaHood and the head of the Federal Aviation Administration, Michael Huerta, declared the plane fit to fly despite a battery fire in one plane. Five days later, following another battery mishap that led to an emergency landing of a 787 in Japan, LaHood and Huerta ordered United, the lone U.S. carrier with 787s, to ground the planes. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Venezuela’s vice-president says plot uncovered; plans to see Chavez Venezuela’s vice-president said Wednesday that the government has uncovered a plot to attack him or another senior leader of President Hugo Chavez’s party. The purported plot involved “groups that have infiltrated the country,” VicePresident Nicolas Maduro said

in a speech to government supporters. He added that the authorities believe the unidentified groups intended to attack him or National Assembly President Diosdado Cabello, and then “try to blame one or the other.” Maduro referred to the alleged plot after announcing he would travel to Cuba on Wednesday along with Oil Minister Rafael Ramirez to see the ailing Chavez, who underwent cancer surgery more than six weeks ago.

3 Canadians on plane missing in Antarctica Weather hinders search. Rescuers looking for trio after airplane presumed to have gone down en route to Terra Nova Bay

Rescuers looking for three Canadians aboard an airplane presumed to have gone down in Antarctica were grappling with bad weather conditions Wednesday, as low visibility and strong winds hampered search efforts. No information was available on the fate of the three men aboard the ski-equipped Twin Otter, which is owned by Calgary-based Kenn Borek Air. A spokesman for the U.S. National Science Foundation — which operates a research station helping in the search for the missing plane — said the trio aboard the aircraft are thought to be Kenn Borek crew members — a pilot, a co-pilot and a flight engineer.

Background

• Kenn Borek Air has been in operation since 1970. According to the company’s website, fourteen aircraft participated in its 2012 Antarctic season. • The company, which is also a fixture in Canada’s North, has been sending planes to Antarctica for the past 28 years. • In 2001, its pilots and planes were involved in the daring rescue of an ailing American doctor from the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station.

“My understanding is that it was just the flight crew and no passengers,” said Peter West, who is based in Arlington, Va., and had been in touch with crews in Antarctica. The plane was flying from the South Pole to an Italian base in Antarctica’s Terra Nova Bay. THE CANADIAN PRESS

British Prime Minister David Cameron pledged Wednesday to offer citizens a vote on whether to leave the European Union if his party wins the next election, prompting rebukes from European leaders accusing the premier of putting the bloc’s future at risk over domestic politics. Claiming that public disillusionment with the 27-nation EU is “at an all-time high,” Cameron used a long-awaited speech in central London to say that the terms of Britain’s membership in the bloc should be revised and the country’s voters should have a say. Cameron proposed that his Conservative Party renegotiate the U.K.’s relationship with the EU if it wins the next general election, expected in 2015. “Once that new settlement has been negotiated, we will give the British people a referendum with a very simple inor-out choice to stay in the EU on these new terms. Or come out altogether,”Cameron said. The speech was seen by many as a gamble to shore

Rebagliati to open medical marijuana franchise Marijuana almost cost him a gold medal at the 1998 Olympics, but snowboarder Ross Rebagliati is hopeful the substance could soon earn him millions. He plans to open a medical marijuana franchise under the name Ross’ Gold with storefronts in Whistler, Vancouver and Toronto, he announced Tuesday. His business ambitions come on the heels of Health Canada’s proposal to privatize the medical marijuana business and only allow authorized producers to grow the plant.

Is N.Y.C.’s soft-drink size limit racist? Legal challenge. New rule to curb sugary beverages could harm minority businesses, opponents argue Opponents of New York City’s limit on the size of sugary drinks are raising questions of racial fairness alongside other complaints as the novel restriction faces a court test. The NAACP’s New York state branch and the Hispanic Federation have joined beverage makers and sellers in their effort to stop the rule from taking effect March 12. Critics are attacking what they call an inconsistent and undemocratic regulation, while city officials and health experts defend it as a pioneering and proper move to fight obesity. The issue is complex for the minority advocates, especially given that obesity rates are higher than average among blacks and Hispanics, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control. The groups say in court papers they’re con-

Various sizes of soft-drink cups stand next to stacks of sugar cubes during a May 2012 news conference at city hall in New York.

cerned about the discrepancy, but the soft-drink rule will unduly harm minority businesses and “freedom of choice in lowincome communities.” The latest in a line of healthy-eating initiatives during Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s administration, the beverage rule bars restaurants and many other eateries from selling highsugar drinks in cups or containers bigger than 16 ounces.

The NAACP and the Hispanic Federation, a network of 100 northeastern groups, say minority-owned delis and corner stores will end up at a disadvantage compared to grocery chains. That’s because supermarkets and many convenience stores — including 7-Eleven, home of the Big Gulp — aren’t subject to city health regulations. The Associated Press

Space’s future ‘vacuum’ cleaner

If you’re a typical Canadian — a Roots-wearing, sorrysaying, proud-to-be-humble Tim Hortons tenant — then you’ve probably noted during the recent sub-zero temperatures that

weather is relative. Oh sure, we Canadians get cold, vibrating in bus stops at frequencies that would be of interest to scientists who work at the Large Hadron Collider, but we won’t stand for anybody else saying that they’re cold. Observe. “It’s been -10 C for several days in Toronto and it’s triggered an extreme cold alert that …” By the time I get to that part in the sentence, there has been a great disturbance in the Canuck Force, with millions of voices scoffing out at once, then sputtering into silence. Also, hundreds of Internet commentators are pounding out dismissive missives about how cold their mom’s basement gets. Similarly, if a Montrealer were to complain about 40 centimetres of snow, you can bet that a Newfoundlander will say they consider that a pleasant shake of the snow globe, suitable for family photos. I call these scornful reactions ‘The Cold Snap.’ It’s a natural response, but as a columnist known for my desire to bring people together, I don’t think it’s necessary. After all, weather isn’t really relative. Did you know that most weather terms actually have very specific meanings? It’s true. Meteorologists have scientific definitions attached to things like “blizzard” and “wind chill,” so there’s no need to bicker about who’s wintrier-than-thou. Use this glossary to heat up (ha!) any arguments over the course of this long, dark winter. Weather glossary: • Arctic air mass. Catholic service in will-they-or-won’tthey wedding on season cliffhanger of popular CBC program. • Blizzard. Delicious ice cream confection from Dairy Queen. Spilling one enough to put army on alert in Toronto. • Cold November rain. Weather pattern caused when your fears subside, and shadows still remain. Typified by epic guitar. • Deep freeze. Where Canada — “seemed nice, quiet, kept to itself” — likes to hide the bodies. • El Nino. First sailing ship to bring global warming to the New World. • Flurry. Group of deals that happens at NHL trade deadline. • Freezing rain. Rain that freezes. I mean, c’mon. • Frostbite. Right of passage for all teenagers who would rather have their ears turn bright red and swell to twice their normal size than be caught wearing a hat, which might look stupid. • Heavy snowfall. Snowfall that makes you think. • Hypothermia. The most awesome and romantic way to die, as seen in Titanic. • Ice fog. Hangover caused by Molson Ice. Reduces visibility. • Lake effect snow. A complex meteorological phenomena as explained by a caveman. • Large southern air mass. Meteorological event that occurs with proper combination of Taco Bell and diet Pepsi. May lead to evacuations. • Precipitation. Anything that falls from the sky, including rain, sleet, snow, manna and Canadian military equipment. • Snow. David Phillips, Environment Canada’s senior climatologist, can set you up if you need some. He knows a guy. • Snowpack. Canadian rapper tragically killed at 32 (Fahrenheit). • Wind chill index. Chart showing how relaxed the breeze will make you feel that day, from ‘patio chime tingler’ to ‘bracing wind off the lake.’ Sometimes shortened to ‘chillex.’ • Winter storm.

DARPA

Space satellite salvage

U.S. unveils plan to clean outer space In the crudest way to describe them, they are “space grave robbers,” but the U.S. Defense Department agency DARPA will provide a valuable salvage service. The Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency has unveiled illustrated plans of a satellite program that will scavenge defunct satellites and recycle them to build new ones.

DARPA’s viewpoint

“We’re attempting to essentially increase the return on investment and try to find a way to really change the economics so that we can lower the cost (of military space missions).” David Barnhart DARPA program manager The Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency is spending $180 million US on testing their technologies.

Metro world news

In the future

Agency identifies satellites to retire In 2016, DARPA will launch a demonstration mission that seeks to resurrect an old antenna from a yet-to-bedetermined decommissioned satellite. DARPA has identified about 140 retired satellites that it can choose from for its first test. DARPA staff said one way to keep costs down is for the mini-satellites to hitch a ride aboard available space on commercial rockets.

DARPA’s past ideas

• Upward Falling Payloads. Robotic drones would rise from ocean depths to perform missions. • 100 Year Starship project. The project started in 2011 to transport humans beyond the solar system within a century. • Project Orion. The concept of interplanetary spacecraft periodically dropping nuclear bombs out of its rear.

Stars talk guns at Sundance Hollywood reflects. In Park City, Utah, Ellen Page and Alexander Skarsgard compare U.S. firearms culture to the sentiments in their home countries The Sundance Film Festival isn’t home to many shoot-emup movies, but action-oriented actors at the festival are facing questions about Hollywood’s role in American gun violence. Guy Pearce, Ellen Page and Alexander Skarsgard are

among those who say Hollywood shares in the blame. Pearce is in Park City, Utah, to support the family drama Breathe In, but he’s pulled plenty of imaginary triggers in violent films such as Lockdown and Lawless. He says Hollywood may make guns seem “cool” to the broader culture, but there are vast variations in films’ approach to guns. “Hollywood probably does play a role,” Pearce said. “It’s a broad spectrum though. There are films that use guns flippantly, then there are films that use guns in a way that would make you never want to look at a gun ever again — because of the ef-

fect that it’s had on the other people in the story at the time. So to sort of just say Hollywood and guns, it’s a broad palette that you’re dealing with, I think. But I’m sure it does have an effect. As does video games, as do stories on the news. All sorts of things probably seep into the consciousness.” Skarsgard, who blasted away aliens in Battleship, says he agrees that Hollywood has some responsibility for how it depicts violence on-screen. “When (NRA executive director) Wayne LaPierre blames it on Hollywood and says guns have nothing to do with it, there is a reason,” he said. “I

ITS TIME

mean, I’m from Sweden. We do have violent video games in Sweden. My teenage brother plays them. He watches Hollywood movies. We do have insane people in Sweden and in Canada. But we don’t have 30,000 gun deaths a year. “Yes, there’s only 10 million people in Sweden as opposed to over 300 (million) in the United States. But the numbers just don’t add up. There are over 300 million weapons in this country. And they help. They do kill people.” Page, who co-stars with Skarsgard in The East, noted that gun restrictions are much more pervasive in her home

country, Canada. “You can’t buy some crazy assault rifle that is made for the military to kill people. And like that to me is just like a no-brainer,” she said. “Why should that just be out and be able to be purchased? That does not make me feel safe as a person.” Skarsgard says it may be time to revisit the Second Amendment. “The whole Second Amendment discussion is ridiculous to me. Because that was written over 200 years ago, and it was a militia to have muskets to fight off Brits,” he said. “The Brits aren’t coming. It’s 2013.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Macy is proud to be the pickled patriarch Shameless. Offbeat family drama follows William H. Macy as Frank Gallagher through his drunken debacles On Shameless, William H. Macy plays the world’s most deadbeat dad. He stars as Frank Gallagher, a boozy, shiftless grifter whose brood of six mix-and-match offspring (do any of them share the same mother?) care for one another and, by necessity, him. The oldest daughter, Fiona (played by Emmy Rossum), is the family’s de facto mom, a Wendy to Frank’s derelict Peter Pan. Derelict is putting it mildly. Frank is abrasive, self-absorbed, scheming and delusional, a pickled patriarch whose most dignified moments find him passed out on the bathroom floor of the family’s ragtag South Chicago digs, or on a random street corner or maybe public park. But somehow the family stays afloat, even with Frank dragging everybody down. “For all the craziness they go through, it is a tight-knit family, an honest family that loves each other fiercely,” says Macy. “That’s what the show is about.” Ever the schemer, Frank figures out a way. Just as, this week, he figures out a way to score some drinking

Stephen Merchant is in front of the screen in Movie 43. handout

Stephen Merchant has built quite the career behind the camera, writing and directing alongside creative partner Ricky Gervais for series like The Office, Extras and Life’s Too Short, but he always relishes a chance to get in front of the camera. Luckily, director Peter Farrelly, who cast Merchant in 2011’s Hall Pass, had Merchant in mind for a segment in his raunchy comedy Movie 43. I gather it didn’t take much convincing to get you to work with Peter again? Yeah, basically Peter said, “Do you want to be in a sketch where you’re on a blind date with Halle Berry?” I think I probably said yes before he’d finished the word Berry. That might have been the best offer I’ve ever had (laughs). They’re trying to keep details of the movie under wraps, but how much of the craziness that you get up to in this are you allowed to talk about? Do you know, I don’t know what I’m allowed to talk about. Basically it’s Halle and I on a blind date, and she introduces the idea of Truth or Dare, so our dares start quite modestly and kind of escalate in absurdity and comic grotesqueness.

It’s odd to think of either of you needing to go on a blind date. Well, I do actually say to her in the sketch, “I’m surprised that she’s on a blind date.” I think people can accept that I’m on a blind date. I agree

that it’s mad that she is, but there you are (laughs). Peter tells me he predicts Movie 43 will get a six per cent on Rotten Tomatoes. I mean, it’d be lucky if it gets a six, I’d have thought. I’m constantly amazed by the disparity between critical appreciation of things and audiences. I have no idea anymore what an audience will respond to and what a critic will respond to. I’ll go see a movie that’s been critically applauded and I’ll hate it, or you know, I’ll go see something which they loathed and which kills me. So I no longer have any idea what either the critics or an audience wants to see. You’ve pretty successfully made the jump from writing to acting, starting with Extras. Was that always part of the plan? It was always my plan. I mean, I always felt like I was a performer. It was never an intention not to perform. When we did The Office, neither of us were experienced performers, and it seemed kind of foolhardy for us both to try and be in front of the camera and also writing it and also directing it. But I think Ricky and I always knew that I was a performer and it was sort of in our armoury, and so when I was in Extras, people were quite surprised, like this was a novelty. I just don’t think people tend to think of me as an actor, so I don’t tend to get offered much acting stuff. Ned Ehrbar/mWN

Marlon Wayans knows parody. He knows what it should be and what it shouldn’t be. As one of the creative forces behind the sketch show In Living Color and the first two Scary Movie films, he’s become one of the foremost experts on the topic along with his six famous siblings. “I’m not saying that we’re geniuses. I’m saying that if you like what we do, there’s a reason,” says Wayans. “It’s not an accident. It’s what we do. When people try to mimic

Q&A

• Is the found footage genre overdone? • Absolutely not. I think it’s one of the great things that happened for young filmmakers. You don’t need huge budgets, you just need some creativity. I think it’s great for this generation – especially this generation of YouTubers. Everybody’s so anxious to get out there and show what they can do. I don’t think making a movie should be that impossible for everybody out there. I think the success that these guys have been having — I mean it inspired me to want to do a found footage comedy. I think it’s a great genre.”

it, it usually comes out pretty damn horrible.” The writer, producer and actor is quick disassociate himself with some spin-offs that followed the Scary Movie films he worked on. “Scary Movie was a great franchise for us,” he says. “We created it and we raised it. We were very proud when we did two. We sent it off to college on three and it turned into a crackhead. Now it’s turning tricks in the street and I’m just going, ‘That’s not my child.’”

What’s the problem with Scary Movie 3 and onward? Epic Movie, Date Movie and Disaster Movie too? “A good parody should stand on it’s own as a movie and not always be pop culture references or movie references,” Wayans says. “That’s not what a parody is — some of the things are similar but it’s a story that you can follow with a character that you like.” Putting aside the franchises that have gone wrong, Wayans can keep doing what he loves doing. He has turned his attention to a new horror-comedy. A Haunted House is a foundfootage movie about an African-American couple living in a house possessed by a demon. “I was watching Paranormal Activity which is one of the biggest franchises in the found footage genre. I was just sitting there going, ‘why do white people do such dumb stuff in these movies? Why don’t they just leave the house?’” Wayans asks. “What if ‘Paranormal Activity’ happened to a black couple?’” And so the haunting begins and not without a few blue scenes involving a few stuffed animals and even a ghost or two. “Me and the teddy bears had a blast,” Wayans says. “You should interview them. They’ll tell you. The two of them fell in love.”

Chiklis shows soft side and clowns around in new role Q&A. Shield star on his funny attire in thriller Parker, his hard-man image and how he helped shape the future of gritty TV ned ehrbar

scene@metro.ca

Before Michael Chiklis could get down to the business of double-crossing Jason Statham in director Taylor Hackford’s Parker, he first had to tackle one of the more peculiar challenges of his career: donning clown makeup and a fat suit for the film’s opening heist. At least he kept a sense of humour about the whole thing. How much say did you have in the clown disguise you wear? None. Well... I didn’t really say anything. I think Taylor and I were of a mind that we wanted it to be a classic clown look that could turn quite menacing on a dime. I was keenly aware that the first time you’d see me in the movie would be as a clown in a big fat suit. Was that a clown policewoman? It looked like they gave you boobs! It was just a fat suit. So yeah, it was a clown cop. You know, a little bit of irony with the clown cop. Given all the tough guy roles you’ve become known for, are people generally nervous when they meet you in person? (Laughs) A lot of people, yeah. Some people I just want to hug them. Because I’ve had grown people shake, you know? And you’re just like, “No, no...” I guess the impact of certain things, particularly The Shield, I think that really rattled a lot of people. It’s a hard-hitting show. I even stopped watching it at night too late because it kept me up. Still, that has got to be a great compliment to you as an actor. Yeah, sure. Absolutely. Clearly the work had an effect, but at the same time I’m not the characters that I portray.

All your favourites. Presented in digital on the big screen.

And you’ve played nicer guys before. That’s the way I started. The whole first part of my career was playing the sort of lovely, affable guys, and I couldn’t get a job playing someone like a Vic Mackey. I couldn’t get seen for something like that. I was very fortunate that it was at FX and it was an unknown writer. A lot of sort of ironic twists in the road. But I wouldn’t have it any other way. You guys were out in front of the trend as far as what viewers can expect from a cable series. We were the first in basic cable, for sure. Basic cable was the purview of reruns at the time. But when we did The Shield, that first year was an explosion. It really was a tectonic shift in the television industry. A lot of people have followed

suit and now it’s really bred this rash of excellent television, frankly. It was great to be a part of that, to be sort of a figurehead, if you will, of a shift in the industry. But you know, there’s cause and effect in everything, actually, where you see more and more movie stars moving into television because the smarter, hardhitting, great drama roles are now being found in basic cable and cable. You get so much more time to... To really delve into a character and create somebody, yeah. But you know, we’re all lovers of film. We’re all lovers of cinema and we all grew up with it. We all want to make movies. There’s been this sort of change in that, too. Like, I don’t know if Taxi Driver would get made today. I kind of doubt it.

New Kids return for trip around the block The Package Tour. 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men round out the returnees for this summer’s boy band reunion tour For Donnie Wahlberg, it’s not a matter of why now, rather, “why not?” The recording artistturned-actor was referring to the news of a major tour with his New Kids on the Block, who’ll be joined this summer on The Package Tour by 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men. “The state of the boy band union is strong,” Wahlberg joked Tuesday. “Even though technically we’re not really boy bands, but we’re OK with that, so we’ll accept it.” The three bands sold millions of records in the 1980s and ’90s and helped usher in a wave of vocal groups that continues today. The Boston-based NKOTB formed in 1984 and amassed 10 Top 20 hits. They broke up in 1994 but got back together after a 14-year hiatus. Wahlberg said he feels the break

Nathan Morris, one of the members of Boyz II Men, known since the early 1990s for such hits as I’ll Make Love to You and End of the Road, said the tour is going to be all about performing. “If the boy band thing is attached, it’s wonderful, but for all of us in here, we’re ready to get out there and sing and perform,” he said. “That’s just what we do.” Though 98 Degrees is the youngest group on the bill, it has been apart the longest, 12 years. “So we’re excited to get back together and doing what we do,” member Nick Lachey said.

Life is Good. With four nominations, Nas is aiming for Grammy gold When a teenage Nas opted out of street hustling to chase his musical dream, those around him found it amusing. “When I chose to get in rap, my friends chose to do other things and not all great things. They chose to be in the streets and kind of laughed at me in a way about taking rap so seriously,” said the rapper, who hails from the New York City borough of Queens. “I’m glad I stuck with it because I believed in it from day one.” No one laughs about Nas now. The 39-year-old rap veteran reached new heights last year with the release of his album Life Is Good, which made several critics’ end-ofthe-year lists. It is nominated for best rap album, competing with records by Drake, Rick Ross, The Roots, Lupe Fiasco and 2 Chainz.

Miguel Adorned by the Grammys Five nominations. R&B singer has song of the year breakthrough nod and four others for upcoming music awards When record executive Mark Pitts heard Sure Thing, a song Miguel wrote for possible inclusion on an album by Usher, Pitts felt there was something special about the young songwriter. Then he heard Quickie, another song from Miguel, and Pitts knew he had to meet the man behind these infectious R&B jams. “He came and performed and just had no fear. I loved him,” said Pitts, president of urban music at RCA Records. “He was like Elvis. He was all over the place at the time, but it was just different. With a little tweaking, this could be special.” Instead of giving the songs to Usher, Pitts gave Miguel a recording contract. The 25-year-old kept the songs for his 2010 debut album, All I Want Is You, and the tracks became R&B hits. Sure Thing was 2011’s top R&B song. Now the singer who almost fell behind the scenes is nominated for the coveted song of the year Grammy with Adorn, his third No. 1 hit on the R&B charts. The song is Miguel’s crossover single to pop territory and is from his sophomore album, Kaleidoscope Dream. “Interestingly I’ve only more recently realized how big of a deal it is,” he said of the top category nomination,

which pits him against No. 1 pop smashes from Carly Rae Jepsen, fun. 0 and Kelly Clarkson. “I think it’s nothing short of a blessing. I’m like, ‘Wow. Of the year? Of the year? Really?”’ And that’s just one of his five nominations. Kaleidoscope Dream is up for best urban contemporary album, a new category where Miguel will compete with Frank Ocean’s Channel ORANGE and Fortune by Chris Brown. Adorn is also up for best R&B song and best R&B performance, while Lotus Flower Bomb, his collaboration with rapper Wale, is nominated for best rap song. Like his debut, L.A.-based Miguel tackles various sounds on his latest album. He describes his music as “dangerous” and “quietly killing.” He combines R&B vocals with smooth beats at times and electro-flavoured ones at others. Adorn is a mellow R&B outtake, as is his latest single, Do You... . But he also meshes funk, electric and rock sounds on his album, and he’s drawn comparisons to Prince, thanks to his futuristic vibe; shiny, fitted fashion ensembles; trendy hairstyle and electrifying stage presence. But Miguel’s debut didn’t splash like his latest album. He didn’t earn any Grammy nominations, though he had produced multiple R&B hits and toured with Mary J. Blige and Usher. Miguel says he was more confident when he recorded his recent album. “I trusted myself so much more this time. I just felt a lot sturdier and kind of went with

my gut on a lot of things,” he said of Kaleidoscope Dream, which made several critics’ best records of 2012 lists. “I had a good idea, but I don’t know if I knew how to convey

the idea the best way and the most honest way, and it took that first album for me to learn the ropes.” Miguel’s growth also comes from songwriting: He co-wrote three songs on Usher’s Raymond v. Raymond, co-wrote the Blige and Musiq Soulchild duet Ifuleave and Jaheim’s Finding My Way Back. He’s also expanding his audience as he recently wrapped up a tour with R&B crooner Trey Songz, and is the opening act for Ali-

cia Keys’ Set the World on Fire Tour, which kicks off March 7 in Seattle. Keys also co-wrote a song on Miguel’s latest album. Miguel, who is black and Mexican, said he’s been influenced by a number of acts, including James Brown, Freddie Mercury, Van Morrison and Jimi Hendrix. His sound is part of the progressive movement in R&B that includes acts like The Weeknd and Ocean, who earned six nominations at this year’s Grammys.

“I think they’re all helping each other at this point,” said Pitts, who’s worked with Notorious B.I.G., Diddy, TLC and Nas. “What Frank Ocean is doing ­— musically and what he stands for, him coming out, all of that — is bringing attention to the sound. ... So is Miguel ... and now the Grammys.” The 55th annual Grammy Awards will air live on CBS from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Feb. 10. The associated press

When a fan tweeted to George, “If you date with Lindsay, I will die,” the British singer responded, “I’m not, so you’re fine,” adding that reports of his canoodling with the troubled starlet are “rumors, that’s all.”

As Arnold Schwarzenegger attempts to mount a comeback for his movie career, he’s apparently also looking to get his marriage to Maria Shriver back on track. Shriver filed for divorce in 2011 after it came to light that Schwarzenegger had fathered a child with

the family’s housekeeper, but Shriver has made no further action to move the divorce forward since the events occurred. “We’re not fighting a war. I still hope for reconciliation,” he tells Germany’s Bild newspaper. “I still love Maria.”

Coupland authors new furniture line Stuck in your JPod? Best-selling author creates line with writers and artists in mind Furniture designer is the latest addition to author Douglas Coupland’s growing list of accomplishments. The best-selling author teamed up with SwitzerCultCreative, a brother-sister luxury design collection, to create a line of furniture that is being unveiled at Toronto’s Interior Design Show this weekend. When I first heard about the furniture line, I was curious about what you would be designing — couches, tables, ottomans? But looking at the collection, it makes perfect sense. It’s designed for creativity, for a writer, an artist. Why did you want to do this collection? I’ve been using an escritoire for years and it’s the perfect thing for writing — its ergonomics — it’s closeability … and the fact that it feels slightly going-back-intimeish to use one. It’s not

The pieces

a category anyone else on earth is doing right now. What was the inspiration behind the collection? I know you spent time in Japan; did that experience influence this collection? Aside from my own happiness with my own escritoire, my time in Japan was a big factor. In art school there, calligraphy is mandatory, and to do it properly, there’s a little bit of ritual involved ... this desk does that perfectly, but it works for laptops as well as ink. There seems to be a combination of order, chaos and calm to the collection. You can close the desk, you can slip the seat underneath, and the bookcases can be closed. You can work at them, but at the same time, you can “walk away,” take a break. Was this a consideration when you designed them? I designed the bookshelves 17 years ago and have lived with them all that time, and pretty much every person who’s come into the house has asked me where I got them. It took a while for the penny to drop: these are

Osaka Bookshelves Copeland named the stackable shelves after shelving he saw that survived the 1995 Osaka earthquake. “Ninety-nine per cent of books are either paperback, hardcover or ‘oversize.’ Anyone’s book collection will fit snugly and easily into whatever configuration works for them.”

Ryoan-ji Lamps The lamps are available in floor and desk models with a checker-pattern shade made of wire and soji-type material. Copeland was inspired by the temple at Ryoanji in Kyoto. “The sliding doors there have a checkered pattern that melted my brain when I saw them. They’re perfect objects.”

The Bento Box Escritoire “Four years ago, I broke my left leg quite badly and for four months I had to reconfigure my entire house. I saw an escritoire on Craigslist and thought: Hmmm … that might just work for me now. And it really did. This piece here is a perfection of my experience with this kind of desk,” says Coupland.

The Writer’s Seat “I have memories of my calligraphy teacher in Sapporo hounding me about not slumping,” Coupland says about the seat, available in five colours. “To look at the picture, it looks kind of awkward, but when you sit in it, your body goes ... oh, now I get it. It’s very comfy regardless of your body shape or size.” The Douglas Coupland for SwitzerCultCreative collection is only available through SwitzerCultCreative — switzercultcreative.com

THE WAY AHEAD

DESIGNING STREETS AND NEIGHBOURHOODS

really lovely functional bookcases that work in whatever combination you buy them in. Don’t buy a desk if you don’t need one, but the bookcases are pure gold. I sound like a catalogue, but it’s true. They’re crazy useful. And yes, you can close it all and walk away knowing everything’s safe. My own desk, under its closed door,

is an absolute pigsty — and had I not revealed that to you now, no one on earth would ever know what a desk slob I am. This seems like a collection for a writer, a scholar, a book lover... It is! What sort of things would

you write about sitting at a desk like this? Well I’m going to write what I’m going to write regardless. But there’s something intimate about these pieces that in turn fuels an intimacy in what’s written. I don’t think I could write much of what I do at home in a library carrel or a hotel room. metro

Modern or traditional, home design events can help you find your style DESIGN CENTRE

Karl Lohnes home@metronews.ca

It may not feel like winter’s going anywhere anytime soon, but spring is only a few months away. In fact, the first signs of the season have already started popping up in various Canadian cities — in the form of home and garden design shows. Home decor enthusiasts are thrilled that all their local resources gather under one roof to make their upcoming decor, renovation and gardening projects a breeze to research. One of the first home design shows of the year in Canada is Toronto’s Interior Design Show, which runs until Sunday at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Of course, I intend on checking it out for new decor trend inspiration and hopefully I will find a few things to help tackle those lagging decorating projects around

my house. With the cold weather we’ve been having, it was nice to get inside, check my coat and explore the hundreds of products and services on display. I was glad to see that the show not only featured the latest and greatest in contemporary and modern decor, but also offered something for the traditionalist at heart. Being a huge fan of the PBS show Downton Abbey, I found lots of inspiring traditional decor touches to mic into my modern decor; and with Downton Abbey trending like crazy, the show’s traditional style will no doubt be peaking into our homes in the near future. Lucky for me, I got a sneak peak at the show and found some fabulous items that I wanted to bring into my own urban castle. Here’s a few tips and tricks for navigating the large home and design shows: 1. Check your coat. The

more comfortable you are, the more time you will want to spend exploring. 2. Leave the young ones at home. There’s not a threeyear-old on this planet that wants to be there. 3. Bring a list of products or services you are hoping to find. You can use your time much more efficiently if you know what you are looking for. 4. Don’t get caught up in “special pricing,” especially for large-ticket items. If you are serious about purchasing something, then leave a small deposit or ask for the special price to be extended a week so you can think about it. 5. Check the show’s website in advance for free seminars and celebrity appearances you don’t want to miss. Some great inspiration from an expert might just help solve a few of your design dilemmas.

Ingredients Meat Sauce • 30 ml (2 tbsp) vegetable oil • 15 ml (1 tbsp) butter • 1 onion, chopped • 500 g (1 lb) ground beef • 5 ml (1 tsp) each crumbled dried rosemary, dried oregano, dried parsley, dried basil, dried thyme and chili flakes • 1 l (4 cups) canned plum tomatoes • 1 l (4 cups) tomato purée • 1 can (369 ml/13 oz) tomato paste • Salt and pepper, to taste Gnocchi • 4 medium baking potatoes (unpeeled) • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten • 1 ml (1/4 tsp) salt • 500 ml (2 cups) all-purpose flour (approx)

Cookbook of the Week

Pair the show with its companion book

That Little Pace by the Lights is just one of the places John Catucci visited for You Gotta Eat Here! “That was one of my favourite places that I shot at,” Catucci says. “I had gone to the cottage in Huntsville a few times and we stopped in that little restaurant. It’s tiny. From the outside I wasn’t expecting much. But when you got in, you could smell the tomato sauce cooking right away and you kind of knew that it was the real deal.” In the companion book to his show, Catucci offers the recipe for Annie’s Gnocchi.

1. Sauce: In pot over medium heat, heat oil and butter. Add onion and cook, stirring, until golden brown. Add ground beef and cook until brown.

2.

Stir in rosemary, oregano, parsley, basil, thyme and chili flakes, then add tomatoes, tomato puree and tomato paste. Fill each empty can halfway with water and add to sauce. Cook, uncovered and stirring occasionally, for 1 1/2 hours or until your preferred thickness. Season with salt and pepper.

This recipe makes eight to 10 servings. the canadian press h/o

3. Gnocchi: Boil potatoes until easily pierced with a fork. Drain and let cool. When cool enough to handle, peel and mash.

4.

Turn mashed potatoes out onto a lightly floured work surface. Make a well in the centre and fill with eggs and salt. Using a wooden spoon or your hands, start mixing in potato from the sides of the well. When all the potato is incorporated, knead

dough, adding as much flour as needed to make a firm dough.

5.

Divide dough into 4 equal pieces. Dust work surface lightly with flour. With your hands, roll each piece into a rope about 1 cm (1/2 inch) thick. Cut each rope into 1-cm (1/2-inch) long pieces and shape. Place on a baking sheet dusted with flour.

6.

Bring a large pot of salted

water to a boil. Use bench scraper to scoop up gnocchi and drop into boiling water. When gnocchi rise to the surface, they are ready. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a bowl. Toss gnocchi with sauce and serve. the canadian press/ You Gotta Eat Here!

Two coaches fired after poor showing at London Games

Track-and-field

“It’s too hard paying for Anika to either go with me to Phoenix or to bring her through Toronto and drop her off in London.” London native Jessica Zelinka on the difficulties of being a track-and-field athlete. Zelinka, one of Canada’s top track athletes, had to take a pass on a training camp in Phoenix next month. Zelinka’s been without a coach since she moved to the U.S. with her husband. She also lost her funding for her three-year-old daughter, Anika, who stays with her parents in London, Ont., when she travels for training.

Dubnyk confident he’ll bounce back NHL. Oilers goalie aims to move on after conceding six goals in team’s home opener

Devan Dubnyk didn’t look like he was just hours removed from being chased from the net in the Edmonton Oilers’ forgettable home opener. The Oilers goaltender appeared relaxed and confident at practice Wednesday afternoon, one night after being pulled after the first period of a 6-3 loss to the San Jose Sharks. The 26-year-old from Regina, who was handed the Oilers starting goaltender job this season, said he was relieved by the forgiving reaction of Edmonton fans to his shaky performance. He said he’ll take his get-outjail-free card and use it wisely. “The fans took it pretty easy on me for how it went down,” he said after an Oilers practice designed to purge their thoughts of Tuesday’s loss and get them prepared for Thursday’s game against the Los Angeles Kings. It’s a little surprising the fans were so accepting, considering they booed the Oilers off the ice at the end of the first period, have questioned whether Dubnyk is up to being a No. 1 goaltender in the NHL and had a vocal and mixed reaction to reports that Edmonton is one of the teams interested in Vancouver goalie Roberto Luongo. Dubnyk, who has been in the Oiler system since he

questions about games I’ve played. It’s certainly frustrating sometimes but I’ve always said I feel confident in myself and confident I can do the job and I feel my teammates and the organization feel the same way.” Dubnyk and head coach Ralph Krueger had a long chat before practice. Krueger said Dubnyk, who will start against the winless Kings, will learn from the firstperiod disaster. “We use the word experience, but what is experience?

Experience is going through tough situations and reacting to them in the right way, learning from then,” he said. Dubnyk, who had a strong start on Sunday in the Oilers’ 3-2 shoot-out win in their season opener in Vancouver, said Krueger told him to forget about the outing and move on. That’s easier said than done, admitted Dubnyk, who said the excitement of the team’s home opener probably contributed to a poor start for the young Oilers. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Oil must answer goalie question quickly THE HOCKEY NEWS

Ryan Kennedy edmonton@metronews.ca

Oilers coach Ralph Krueger left goalie Devan Dubnyk in on Tuesday for all six first-period goals. THE CANADIAN PRESS

When it comes to small sample sizes, you can’t get much tinier than what we’re working off of in the NHL right now. Most teams have played only a couple of games and in a shortened season, conventional wisdom goes out the window. For example, the Anaheim Ducks are scoring six goals per game right now while the Philadelphia Flyers are averaging one. Detroit looks awful

and may get worse thanks to a banged-up defence corps. That said, the young Oilers must be wary of how their first week transpired. Sure, you had the highs of first NHL goals for rookies Justin Schultz and Nail Yakupov, but more troubling was the six-spot given up in the first period of Tuesday’s loss to San Jose. Specifically, because it once again brings up the Devan Dubnyk Question. Is Edmonton’s No. 1 goalie, in fact, a No. 1 goalie? For years the franchise and its optimistic fan base have been banking on this and 2012-13 was supposed to be the cam-

paign in which there would be, if not complete vindication, then at least a modicum of growth from basement dweller to say, ground floor apartment status. A lot of it hangs on the big shoulders of the six-foot-five, 210-pound Dubnyk. And the fact new coach Ralph Krueger let him stay in for all six first period goals speaks volumes. Yann Danis, who eventually, mercifully, took over for Dubnyk, is an AHL starter, not an NHLer. He can give you a couple of starts but is best suited as the seldomused backup, not a Josh Harding-to-Dubnyk’s-Niklas

Backstrom type. The rest of the bank is filled with kids who are still growing: Tyler Bunz, Samu Perhonen and Olivier Roy, none of whom have turned 22. Look around the league, and you won’t find many goalies that fit that description. We know this team can score, but it doesn’t matter if the Oilers ring up three goals per game if they’re letting four, five or six go by in the other direction. And a return of Nikolai Khabibulin wouldn’t change things, either. If action needs to be taken, it should be sooner than later.

Athletics Canada has fired its two top coaches. Head coach Alex Gardiner and chief highperformance officer Martin Goulet were let go by trackand-field’s national governing body on Wednesday, on the heels of Canada’s disappointing performance at last summer’s London Olympics. “I think now, especially with dollars being involved, there’s accountability and there are performance expectations,” Athletics Canada’s CEO Rob Guy said in a phone interview from his Ottawa office. “Really we’re in the performance business, we have objectives for performance and, just like anybody else, we need to meet them. “We get a lot of money to attempt to win medals, and when we don’t do that, we need to look at ways as to how we get better.” Canada had set a target of three athletics medals in London, but fell short, coming away with just one — Derek Drouin’s bronze in high jump.

van Riemsdyk said. Not the way the sloppy Penguins were handling the puck. Van Riemsdyk gave Toronto the lead for good late in the second period when a weak clearing pass by Pittsburgh’s Evgeni Malkin ended up right on van Riemsdyk’s stick at the top of the left circle. The quick shot that followed whizzed over Marc-Andre Fleury’s glove and highlighted a night that sent the Penguins crashing back to earth after rousing opening weekend road wins in Philadelphia and New York. Clarke MacArthur, Mikhail Grabovski and Tyler Bozak also scored for the Maple Leafs. Nikolai Kulemin added three assists and James Reimer stopped 28 shots in his first start of the season. Sidney Crosby and Malkin — the league’s reigning MVP — scored their first goals of the season for Pittsburgh, but the Penguins struggled with Toronto’s quickness and failed to play with discipline. The two superstars picked up misconduct penalties in the final minutes with things out of hand. the associated press

St-Pierre and Diaz to settle the score in champion’s hometown UFC. Canadian welterweight opted to defend title instead of fighting middleweight kingpin Silva If there is unfinished business between welterweight king

Georges St-Pierre and bad boy Nick Diaz, it will be settled at UFC 158 in Montreal on March 16. UFC boss Dana White wanted to pit St-Pierre against Anderson Silva, a bout many fans have waited for, but the champion from Montreal asked for Diaz. “Georges has been a great champion and he’s been

great for the company and if he wants another fight, we’ll make it for him,” White said on Wednesday at a news conference attended by a throng of media and about 100 fans. “We knew Nick wanted the fight, so it worked out.” It will be the main event on a card that features six of the Top 10-ranked welterweights. The co-feature between St-

Pierre’s training partner Rory (Ares) MacDonald (14-1) and Carlos Condit (28-6) and another 170-pound bout pitting Johny Hendricks (14-1) against Jake Ellenberger (28-6) may help decide who St-Pierre’s future opponents will be, if he stretches his winning streak to 11 by defeating Diaz. “This is the big fight that people wanted to see, more

than any other guy,” said StPierre (23-2). “For me, Nick is the No. 1 contender. “There’s a history between us. We both wanted this fight for a long time. Let’s do it.” The two were scheduled to square off nearly two years ago, but Diaz (27-8-1) was dropped from the bout when he failed to turn up at two promotional events. The Canadian Press

NFL

Seau family sues, claims league hid perils of repetitive blow to the head Add Junior Seau’s family to the thousands of people who are suing the NFL over the long-term damage caused by concussions. Seau’s ex-wife and four children sued the league on Wednesday, saying the former linebacker’s suicide was the result of brain disease caused by violent hits he sustained while playing football. The wrongful death lawsuit, filed in California Superior Court in San Diego, blames the NFL for its “acts or omissions” that hid the dangers of repetitive blows to the head. It says Seau developed chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) from those hits, and accuses the NFL of deliberately ignoring and concealing evidence of the risks associated with traumatic brain injuries. Seau died at the age of 43 of a self-inflicted gunshot in May. He was diagnosed with CTE, based on posthumous tests, earlier this month. Scores of the concussion lawsuits have been brought together before U.S. District Judge Anita B. Brody in Philadelphia. Helmet manufacturer Riddell Inc., also is a defendant, with the Seau family saying Riddell was “negligent in its design, testing, assembly, manufacture, marketing and engineering of the helmets” used by NFL players. The suit says the helmets were unreasonably dangerous and unsafe. Riddell issued a statement saying it is “confident in the integrity of our products and our ability to successfully defend our products against challenges.” The Associated PRess

viewed the 17-year-old ball boy with his father after the game and neither wished to press any charges,” Swansea said. “It was an unfortunate incident which both parties regret being involved in.” With Chelsea needing two goals at Swansea’s Liberty Stadium to force overtime in the two-game series, the ball bounced off an advertising board behind the goal line in

the 79th minute. The ball boy, wearing a Swansea sweatsuit, slowly walked over to pick it up. Hazard ran up to reclaim the ball and the teen fell over, stomach toward the ground and the ball under him. The Belgian winger leaned over the teenager, tried to pull the ball free with both hands and then kicked at it under the youth. The Associated Press

Libra

Aries

Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 Creatively and romantically the next few weeks are going to be a lot of fun, so set your sights high and don’t let anyone tell you that you are expecting too much from life. You’ll get all you desire and more.

March 21 - April 20 No matter how much of a livewire Aries you happen to be, there are only 24 hours in a day. If you want to do more in one area, you will have to do less in another. Start making plans right away.

Taurus

Scorpio

Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 You need to pay attention to what loved ones are trying to tell you. Being a Scorpio, it’s quite easy for you to switch off and ignore those around you but if you do that now you’ll mess up big time.

April 21 - May 21 It’s true that the higher you aim, the more challenges you will face but if you know what you want and if you believe in yourself there is nothing you cannot accomplish. Show the world what you’re made of.

Gemini

Sagittarius

Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 Over the next few days you will find that things start going your way for a change, which in turn will make you feel happier about life generally. Sagittarians who enjoy meeting new people will be in their element.

May 22 - June 21 Do something positive with your time and energy today. The Sun in your fellow Air sign of Aquarius raises your spirits and makes you believe that all things are possible. But it’s still up to you to make the effort.

Cancer

Capricorn

June 22 - July 23 The planets are making it easy for you to make difficult decisions. You know what needs to be done and you know if you don’t do it no one else will either. You’re clearly motivated to make a difference.

Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 You’ve had a lot of ideas and started a lot of new projects in recent weeks. But if you want to be successful, you must be selective. Commit yourself to a single ambition and focus all your energies in that direction.

Leo

Aquarius

July 24 - Aug. 23 Cosmic activity in your opposite sign means you must take other people’s opinions into account now. If you put your own ego needs first, you can expect to meet some stiff opposition over the next few days.

Jan. 21 - Feb. 19 Forget everything that has gone before because the only thing that matters is what comes next. The Sun in your sign means a new start is possible, and the sooner you begin the sooner you will be smiling again.
