Guest workers expected to stay Immigration. Many will ignore 2015 permit expiration: Experts Toronto will see a spike in its undocumented migrant population in 2015 when many of Canada’s temporary foreign

workers see their four-year work permits expire and move underground, a city committee has heard. “This issue is going to hit Toronto particularly hard,” University of Toronto law professor Andrey Macklin, a member of an immigration expert panel, told the community develop-

ment and recreation committee Thursday. “Based on the experience of other guest-worker regimes, there is a significant number of people who end up overstaying.” The challenge is how the city and Greater Toronto are going to serve this vulnerable

population that lives in the shadows, said Macklin. In light of the rapid changes to Canadian immigration in recent years, the committee had instructed staff to report on their implications to Toronto. The Immigration and Settlement Panel — consisting of Macklin, TD Economics econo-

mist Francis Fong, Women’s Health in Women’s Hands’ Notisha Massaquoi and Thorncliffe Neighbourhood Office’s Jehad Aliweiwi — was struck to provide expert advice on the issues identified. In April 2011, the federal government changed the temporary-foreign-worker program

page 27

by limiting their work permits to a maximum of four years and banning them from re-applying within four years. While the four-member expert panel had no idea how many of the work permits will expire on April 1, 2015, it could be in the “thousands” in Toronto alone. torstar news service

Crime

Ex-roommate charged in former escort’s death

Two years after the murder of 20-year-old Kera Freeland, her body found in a Caledon ditch, a 35-year-old man has been arrested in Calgary and charged in her death. Freeland, originally from Calgary, had quit working as an escort in Toronto a month before she disappeared in January 2011, police have said. Her body was discovered on Heart Lake Road two months later. Christopher Andronakos, Freeland’s former Toronto roommate, was arrested in Calgary on Wednesday afternoon and charged with second-degree murder. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

‘No Casino’ group looks to be gaining momentum Battle for support. Canadian property developer joins powerful pro-casino movement as city council vote on resort looms in April

Quoted

“We’re a small but mighty team. We always thought if we ever won this it would be death by 1,000 cuts, it wouldn’t be one knockout blow, and it’s beginning to work because the support is growing rapidly and daily. It has turned.” Maureen Lynett, No Casino Toronto co-founder

In one corner is No Casino Toronto, which has grown from three concerned women to a city-wide, social-media-savvy force. In the other is Mayor Rob Ford, Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp., international casino giants, several unions and an army of lobbyists. On Thursday, Canadian property developer Cadillac Fairview joined the push as a full partner in Nevada-based MGM Resorts’ pitch for an “in-

tegrated resort.” That bid has focused on Exhibition Place but sources say Cadillac Fairview’s vast realestate holdings open up other GTA possibilities. No Casino Toronto has spent about $3,200 and is about to cough up a bit more to hand out 1,000 lawn signs. OLG alone spent $5.75 million for a weeks-long media blitz touting its provincewide “modernization” plan and, in

some cases, specific hopes for a Toronto casino. In the middle are Torontonians and their 45 elected officials who, in a council vote expected in April, will decide whether to welcome a casino and, potentially, dictate a site and other conditions to private operators vying for the right to build and operate the GTA’s one new facility. According to a Torstar News Service survey of Toron-

to councillors Wednesday and Thursday, the No campaign, warning of inflated benefits and social and economic ills, is at the moment beating the pro-casino group promising a convention and tourism boost and a revenue jackpot for the city. Of the 21 Toronto councillors reached, only two — Vince Crisanti and Norm Kelly — gave an unqualified “Yes” when asked if they will vote for a downtown casino. Eleven were a firm “No” or strongly leaning that way, while eight who were undecided expressed frustration at the lack of a firm figure for the city’s take. Hosting-fee estimates have ranged from $30 million to $168 million, depending on location and size. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Toronto hosting auditions for musical Once

Bright idea for former U of T students

An open audition in Toronto on Feb. 16 could lead to Broadway and a role in the Tony Award-winning musical Once. Auditions will be held at the Randolph Centre for the Performing Arts at 736 Bathurst St., starting at 10 a.m. Those wishing to audition must sign in by 11 a.m. to ensure they get their shot. The play — based on the 2005 film of the same name — opened on Broadway last year and won eight Tony Awards, including best musical.

A team of Canadians has produced the NanoLight, which its inventors say is the world’s most energyefficient light bulb. U of T grads Gimmy Chu, Christian Yan and Tom Rodinger developed the bulb, which uses only 12 watts of electricity yet generates over 1,600 lumens, or the equivalent output of a 100-watt incandescent bulb. Two of the partners are in China trying to set up an assembly line. The products are posted on the Kickstarter website.

Employed no more? Consequences. Senator faces calls for punishment after mocking Chief Spence

Prime Minister Stephen Harper says while some of his Conservative MPs may not agree, abortion is legal in Canada. Harper made the comments under questioning in the House of Commons over a letter written by three Tory MPs who want the RCMP to investigate hundreds of abortions as possible homicides. “I think all members of this house, whether they agree with it or not, understand that abortion is legal in Canada, and this government ... has made it very clear that the government does not intend to change the law,” Harper said Thursday.

Some Idle No More organizers want repercussions for Sen. Patrick Brazeau after he made what they say are inappropriate comments about Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence at a Conservative fundraising event. Brazeau referred to Spence’s “so-called hunger strike” at a Legion hall in Ottawa and mocked her physical shape. “I was sick two weeks ago,” Brazeau said. “I had the flu and I lost five pounds. I look at Miss Spence, when she started her hunger strike, and now?” A voice then called out, “She’s fatter,” which drew laughter from much of the audience. Erica Lee, one of the many organizers of the Idle No More movement, said although she’s not surprised by the senator’s remarks, she feels there should be consequences. “It is frustrating, because he

is a First Nations senator, and ... to have him make extremely racist and sexist comments towards Theresa Spence ... is very disheartening,” said Lee. She feels Brazeau’s position should be reviewed and noted it may be too late for apologies. Metro tried to reach Brazeau for comment, but phone calls to his constituency office were not returned.

Response in the House

Tories dodge controversy The Conservative government defended its handling of aboriginal issues Thursday and sidestepped the disparaging comments made by two members of Stephen

Drug under review after French ban Health Canada says it is reviewing all available information on the drug Diane-35 following France’s decision to ban it following four deaths over the last 25 years. The four women died of blood clots linked to their use of Diane-35, an acne drug

The MPs from Saskatchewan, Alberta and Ontario made the request on House of Commons letterhead to RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson. “From 2000 to 2009 in Canada, there were 491 abortions of 20 weeks gestation and greater that resulted in live births,” reads the letter dated Jan. 23. “This means that the aborted child died after it was born.” The letter is signed by Maurice Vellacott of SaskatoonWanuskwein, Leon Benoit of Vegreville-Wainwright and Wladyslaw Lizon of Mississauga East-Cooksville.

TORONTO MOVES: FOR SCHEDULES AND MORE, GO TO TTC.CA

TTC AND ITS EMPLOYEES SERVE TORONTO, BUT ALSO PLAY ACTIVE CITY-BUILDING ROLE

T

ANDY BYFORD CEO TORONTO TRANSIT COMMISSION

he TTC’s core business is moving people from A to B on clean, safe, reliable vehicles with the support of helpful, professional staff. Our efforts are focused around that objective, and that will continue. But I strongly believe that the TTC also has a role to play in city building and in playing its part in the community. Earlier this week, I attended a seminar entitled “From Battlefield to Boardroom” designed to promote the value of employing former service personnel into business. A series of speakers extolled the particular attributes that ex-Forces staff can

bring to an organization, and this is certainly an avenue that I would like to pursue as we seek to professionalize the TTC from top to bottom. The TTC has a proud history of links with the military. Every year, we participate in Remembrance Day ceremonies and we have a number of reservist and former service personnel in our ranks today. The TTC and its employees, in fact, are actively involved in many community activities. In the last 10 years alone, TTC employees have raised more than $12 million for the United Way. As well, many staff give up their time to serve other charities and city institutions in the name

of community spirit. The TTC actively supports community functions, big and small. February, for example, is Black History Month, where the city recognizes past and present contributions that African-Canadians have made to Toronto’s rich life. The TTC is a great way to get to many of the events and exhibits that celebrate Black History Month, some of which are listed to the right. So while our core focus remains on the day (and night) job of keeping Toronto moving, I would like to see the TTC play an even larger role in supporting the communities, people and events that make this city so special.

ASK TTC – A QUESTION OF ETIQUETTE Dear Andy Byford, Why is the TTC so lax when it comes to educating its riders on courteous and considerate behaviour? When we have people coming to Toronto from every corner of the world is it any wonder that riding on the TTC has become a veritable free-for-all? Just this morning I got smacked in the head, again, by a backpack filled with books. Last Tuesday I couldn’t get off the train at Wellesley because so many people were hugging the door. These are very common issues that the TTC approach in such a sadly benign manner. From time to time I use the Mississauga Transit. As you enter a bus there is signage instructing passengers to remove their backpacks, move to the back of the bus and be cognizant of those around them who might need a seat. Educate your riders. Set a standard. I’ve had people sit down next to me and eat perogies, chicken wings, sushi and poutine. I don’t experience this in cities like London and Paris where I routinely visit. Please, educate your riders. Sincerely, Philip Hi Philip, Thank you for your question. We know that etiquette leads to a more pleasant commute, but that’s not the only reason to be polite to your fellow commuter. On a public transit system, etiquette can improve travel times as well. Blocking doors on TTC vehicles leads to perceived overcrowding and longer “dwell” times at platforms and stops. Increased dwell time, or the time a train, streetcar or bus has to service a platform or stop, can lead to bunching and a domino effect of delays down the line. At its worst, it prevents customers from even boarding vehicles because there is simply no room to enter.

Hostage standoff. Alleged killer remains with child in underground bunker

Blaer hitch. Icelandic teen wins bid to keep ‘inappropriate’ name

Speaking into a ventilation pipe, hostage negotiators tried to talk a man into releasing a five-year-old boy and ending a standoff at an underground bunker in rural Alabama that stretched into its third day. The man identified by multiple neighbours and witnesses as 65-year-old retired truck driver Jimmy Lee Dykes was accused of pulling the boy from a school bus on Tuesday and killing the driver. The man and boy were holed up in a small room on his property that authorities compared to tornado shelters common in the area. James Arrington, police chief of the neighbouring town of Pinckard, said the shelter was about 4 feet underground, with a ventilation pipe that negotiators were speaking through. There were signs that the standoff could continue for some time: A state legislator said the shelter has electricity, food and TV. The police chief said the captor has been sleeping and told negotiators that he has spent long periods in the shelter before. “He will have to give up sooner or later because (au-

A 15-year-old Icelandic girl has been granted the right to legally use the name given to her by her mother, despite the opposition of authorities and Iceland’s strict law on names. Reykjavik District Court ruled Thursday that the name Blaer can be used. It means light breeze. The decision overturns an earlier rejection by Icelandic authorities who declared it was not a proper feminine name. Until now, Blaer Bjark-

The bus driver, Charles Albert Poland Jr., 66, was hailed by locals as a hero who gave his life to protect the 21 students aboard the bus. Authorities say most of the students scrambled to the back of the bus when the gunman boarded and said he wanted two boys 6 to 8 years old. When the gunman went down the aisle, authorities said, Poland tried to block him.

thorities) are not leaving,” Arrington said. “It’s pretty small, but he’s been known to stay in there eight days.” Midland City Mayor Virgil Skipper said he has been briefed by law enforcement and visited with the boy’s parents. “He’s crying for his parents,” he said. The normally quiet road was teeming Thursday with more than a dozen police cars and trucks, a fire truck, a helicopter, media and at least one ambulance near Midland City, population 2,300.

For real this time Beyonce sings the national anthem during a news conference Thursday in New Orleans. The singer answered critics of her Inauguration Day performance the best way she could — with another sterling performance of the national anthem. The difference? On Thursday, it was live. She admitted during her Super Bowl news conference that when she performed for President Barack Obama and the nation, she decided to sing to a prerecorded track because she didn’t have time to practice. She said she wanted the day to go off without a hitch. Matt Slocum/the associated press

Youth education the next step in avalanche safety Expanded services dependant on dollars. Education in remote mountain communities a priority for CAC MATT kieltyka

Metro in Vancouver

Avalanche safety has come a long way since the lives of seven Calgary students were lost during an ill-fated field trip in British Columbia’s backcountry 10 years ago today. Fatality rates have stabilized in the face of increasing backcountry use, more people are getting properly trained and equipped before heading into the mountains, and public awareness is on the rise. Those successes can be directly attributed to aggressive reform after the 2003 Connaught Creek avalanche, but the Canadian Avalanche Centre (CAC) is well aware more work could be done. But that becomes a question of funding. And it’s an unanswered question. “It depends a lot on what people want us to do,” said Karl Klassen, acting executive director of the CAC. “If people are happy with our services the way they are, I think we’re in good shape.” The CAC — which, among many other tasks, is responsible for public avalanche forecasting and sets the standards for public avalanche-training courses and equipment — has a projected budget of $1.8 million this year. Its federal funding enters the final year of a three-year cycle in 2014 and then it’s back to the negotiating table. Klassen doesn’t think securing funding to maintain the CAC’s status quo will be a problem, but some (both within the CAC and outside) are asking whether that level of service goes far enough. “There have been a number of calls to expand services,” Klassen said. “For example, we don’t do forecasts for the north Rockies. We’re working on a project to see how we can go about it, but it will take more money.” Klassen sees the centre focusing on three pillars in the By the numbers

Ongoing process

Parks Canada strives to stay ahead of curve Parks Canada is always working to be at the forefront of avalanche safety. Mountain-risk specialist Grant Statham says fine-tuning and tailoring of public alerts, bulletins and information is an ongoing process. “I would say what you see in the public domain today — we’re a year or two ahead of that,” said Statham. “At least, I hope so. We’re always looking at how to better communicate with people. We want them to be better educated, that’s the most important thing.” Metro

coming years: world-leading public avalanche information and bulletins, outreach and awareness programs and expanded youth education. The third piece of that puzzle is perhaps the most critical going forward but is also underfunded. “We’d love to expand youth education but we just don’t have the resources for it,” said Klassen. “There are many mountain communities, where avalanches are a fact of life, that just don’t have much in the way of (avalanche) education.” He argues that children from kindergarten to Grade 8 in those communities must “be aware of the avalanche problem” and be taught skills that will serve them throughout life. Even urban communities need greater youth education programs. “Tons of people from Calgary go to the mountains every weekend,” Klassen said. “(Education is) one of the cornerstones of what we should be doing, but unless we secure long-term additional funding we just can’t do it.” It’s an important decision that the CAC, and governments, will need to make over the next two years if Canada hopes to stay at the forefront of avalanche safety.

Her son Trevor Petersen, a legend in the world of extreme skiing, was killed at the height of his career in an avalanche in February 1996 in the mountains of Chamonix, France. He was 34 and left behind his partner, Tanya, and his son, Kye, and daughter, Névé. Petersen, the youngest of three, learned to love the

mountains at an early age from his brothers, Lindsay and Rick. He skied the most treacherous mountains in the world and graced the covers of many international magazines. “I felt that my world had fallen in and I was lost after Trevor died,” she says. “I missed his spirit, his love of life, of the mountains and his family.” Stewart spent two years undergoing therapy to deal with that loss and wondered

Justin Trudeau champions backcountry safety after loss Justin Trudeau knows too well that an avalanche doesn’t pause to ask a person’s last name when it barrels down a mountain. The Liberal leadership contender lost his youngest brother, Michel, when an avalanche swept him into B.C.’s Kokanee Lake while he was backcountry skiing in 1998. He was 23. In the wake of the tragedy, Trudeau and his family became a force in raising awareness and funds for Canada’s avalanche-safety organizations. “We said, ‘Please don’t send flowers, send a donation to —’ and then we tried to figure out what the Canadian avalanche community was,” Trudeau said in a phone interview from Prince George. “They needed support, and I got involved.” Trudeau worked with the Canadian Avalanche Association to secure stable funding from the B.C., Alberta and federal governments and to build the Canadian Avalanche Centre until he entered politics in 2006. “For me it was an opportunity to get to know this amazing sport and to get to know this world so well that my brother loved so much. It got me closer to him and his memory,” he said. “There’s just an amazing group of people committed to our extraordinary wilderness and playing safe within it.” It took the StrathconaTweedsmuir School accident, where seven children on an outdoor-education trip died in a slide near B.C.’s Rogers Pass, he said, to change public perception toward avalanche awareness. He credits ski patrols, scientists and the backcountry community for putting Canada at the forefront of avalanche

made the backcountry more accessible. “They need to be a little bit more aware so they

can take smart risks.” No stranger to the backcountry himself — he lived and

taught snowboarding in Whistler in 1997 — Trudeau understands the draw and the pure feeling of “earning your turns.” “It’s not about preventing people from going out there; it’s about giving them the tools and the knowledge to make sure they’re doing it safely.” Emily Jackson/Metro in Vancouver

helps parents grieve what she could do to help others. She got together with five other moms who had lost sons and daughters on the mountains and formed a group called Parents of Lost Skiers (POLS) in 1998. “My intention was to carry on his method, his way and his love of others by helping them as they go on through life,” Stewart says. Since then, Stewart has gotten thousands of phone calls and emails from parents all over the world eager to ask questions on how she survived and dealt with her grief. A couple from Texas visited Stewart more than a year ago at her home in West Vancouver. Their son died on Mount Seymour in B.C. a few years ago.

POLS’ mission

Parents of Lost Skiers’ mission statement: • “To help, encourage and

support parents who have lost a child to the mountains and to support the safety and the education of young people who feel the call of the mountains.”

“We had lunch and talked. We parted, and the husband came running to me and told me what POLS meant to them,” Stewart says. “He told me his wife two weeks ago had everything ready to commit suicide. She didn’t want to

live if she couldn’t be with her son.” Stewart had sent an email to the woman earlier, encouraging her to go day-by-day. “She confessed to her husband that she’s thrown all the stuff away and decided not to go through with it,” she says. “She decided if one person can do it, then maybe she can do it.” Stewart says everything she does is a tribute to her son, who died doing what he loved best. “He once said to me, ‘Mom, if I should ever die doing this, know that I was exactly where I wanted to be, doing exactly what I wanted,’” she says. “But we all miss him.” Phylicia Torrevillas/ Metro in Vancouver

An employee apparently fired from music retailer HMV in the U.K. let loose on the company’s Twitter feed Thursday, comparing the latest round of layoffs to a mass execution. The rogue messages — which immediately attracted media attention — started with a missive saying “we’re tweeting live from HR where we’re all being fired! Exciting!!” “There are over 60 of us being fired at once! Mass execution, of loyal employees who love the brand,” another message said. The person’s identity wasn’t clear but the Twitter messages came from the company’s verified account, suggesting an employee was responsible. In a statement, Deloitte, HMV’s administrator, said that there had been 190 layoffs, most of them at the company’s head office. “Although such decisions are always difficult, it is a necessary step in restructuring

Sears Canada announced Thursday it is laying off 700 workers across the country as part of a move to “right-size” the company and focus on restructuring its business. The national retailer says 360 people are being laid off from its department stores and about 300 from its distribution centres. The remaining workers are being let go from head office and other support areas. The job cuts will be across Canada. Sears Canada has been revamping operations to encourage more customers to return to its stores after years of declining sales, and also to prepare for the entry of numerous U.S. retailers, including discount chain Target. Earlier this month, Sears had announced it was teaming up with the Aldo Group to design and manufacture footwear lines for their Nevada, Attitude and Jessica brands. The company has 195 corporate stores, 269 hometown dealer stores, eight home ser-

vices showrooms and more than 1,500 merchandise pickup locations. Meanwhile, Best Buy Canada has closed eight Future Shop and seven Best Buy bigbox stores across the country. The company says as part of its “transformational plan” it will open Future Shop small-concept web stores and Best Buy Mobile locations across Canada in the next year and a half. “This move will enable the company to better serve its customers in both more locations and smaller markets across the country,” the company said in a release. It adds the closures are part of its efforts to “reduce unnecessary costs, eliminate redundant operating systems and to optimize its realestate strategy to reflect ... a changing retail landscape.” Some 900 employees will be laid off because of the closures, representing less than five per cent of Best Buy Canada’s workforce, a spokeswoman said.

The rainbow connection

Game of Thrones. When Queen Beatrix Mike Benhaim of the Netherlands metronews.ca announced she would abdicate her throne in favour of her son, some expected Queen Elizabeth to do the same, but Lizzie ain’t budging. Prince Charles is 64 and has been in line for the throne since he was three, the longest wait in British history. Instead, poor Charles is relegated to the mundane tasks of travelling the world, eating at ridiculously over-priced restaurants, and watching the ballet. Beam me up. Russian astronauts aboard the International Space Station succeeded in transferring 400 megabytes of data to their ground station via laser communication channel for the first time in international practice. The breakthrough brings them one step closer to their eventual goal of downloading porn in space. ... and speaking of porn. Adult-film star Ron Jeremy was left in critical condition this week following the discovery of a heart aneurysm that required surgery. I wish him the best and a speedy recovery, but I’m guessing the situation may have been brought on by repeated shifts in the flow of blood. Just sayin’. Bowl busters. Super Bowl Sunday is looming and there has been more talk of Beyoncé lip-syncing than football. My position on this is best illustrated in the words of Steve Martin, who co-starred with the singer in the film The Pink Panther, when he says, “Stop badgering her. Can’t you see she’s sexy!?” Why-arton? Groundhog Day is upon us once again. Obviously there is no better scientific system of climate prognostication than for a subterranean-dwelling rodent to tell us how many weeks are left of winter, but we wacky, unconventional types like to wing it with a crazy little instrument known to our ancestors as a CALENDAR. Superstition. This week in 1986, Diana Ross married Norwegian shipping magnate Arne Næss Jr. in Geneva. Stevie Wonder performed at the reception. The couple divorced in 2000, proving once again that Stevie’s just bad luck. Sexy brekkie. Let’s face it, Canadians love cereal. And sex. Not necessarily at the same time (and probably not in that order). Well, now Peter Ehrlich, a former columnist and radio host, has burst onto the breakfast market with Sexcereal. The tasty health food is sweeping the nation with gender-specific nutrients that also promote sexual health, but beware not to mix up the bags.

Landscape photo

Waterfall makes circular rainbow This stunning image shows an almost fullcircle rainbow at Victoria Falls. The amazing picture was taken by amateur photographer Nicole Cambré on the Zambian side of this impressive natural spectacle. Cambré, a 42-year-old lawyer from Brussels, captured the shot from Livingstone Island, which is on the edge of the falls.

Photographer’s viewpoint

Full-circle phenomenon

“Capturing the rainbow over the falls was more challenging than I thought, especially with the spray. On Livingstone Island on top of the falls I finally managed to capture this full rainbow.”

The lower the sun, the higher the bow

Don’t need sun to make a rainbow

It’s very rare to see a fullcircle rainbow as the bottom is usually blocked by one’s horizon. The sun’s height determines how much of an arc you see; the lower the sun, the higher the top of the rainbow. Some rainbows continue even below the horizon. Mountain climbers see more of a full-circle, while pilots have reported seeing genuine full-circle rainbows. Metro

Victoria Falls is also famous for its “moonbows,” or lunar rainbows. Moonlight shines on the water, and while it is hard for the human eye to detect it, the bow’s colours will appear in longexposure photographs. The moonbows are rare because a number of conditions are required: the moon must be less than 42 degrees high in a very dark sky. Metro

Reel Guys

RICHARD CROUSE AND MARK BRESLIN

The day the music died Feb. 3, 1959. The Reel Guys remember Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper with movie picks that pay tribute to their legacies

Richard: Mark, Buddy Holly was arguably the biggest star of the three musicians, so it’s no surprise that he pops up in the most movies. Gary Busey is the most famous of the Holly impersonators, having been nominated for an Oscar for The Buddy Holly Story, but others have also donned the black rims to good effect. An unknown actor named Guy Kent raved on in a surreal retelling of Buddy’s life called The Day the Music Died. Less successful was Frankie Muniz who should have been (Peggy) sued for his performance in Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. Mark: Buddy Holly was surely the genius of the three. And I

think The Buddy Holly Story did him justice. It was Gary Busey’s last significant lead, and I think it’s ironic that the madman actor played one of the few levelheaded stars of rock ‘n’ roll. La Bamba is a step down in rock biopics. Valens only had a ninemonth career, and you can feel the story padding in the film. But worst of all was the sentimental ending with his brother blubbering on about the loss. Again, it was Lou Diamond Phillips’ last significant lead before he became the straight-to-video champ.

music by Los Lobos is good! Maybe you’d enjoy Lives and Deaths of the Poets more. It’s a collection of short skits about famous writers and musicians, including Valens.

RC: He may not be the biggest box office draw, but anyone who watched Celebrity Cook Off knows he’s a helluva chef. I regard his homemade Wild Turkey Bourbon Barbecue Sauce as highly as his work in Young Guns or Stand and Deliver. But back to the movies. I liked La Bamba more than you, even though Phillips was way too old to play the 18-year-old singer. Most of it is Hollywood hokum, but the

RC: I think his life would make a good movie. He was a colourful character — a singer, a flamboyant DJ who wrote some big hits for other people. If they can make a film about payola king Alan Freed they could certainly find enough material for a Big Bopper biopic.

“If they can make a film about payola king Alan Freed they could certainly find enough material for a Big Bopper biopic.”

MB: I suspect the Freed movie, American Hot Wax, was as much about the art-

ists that revolved around him as Freed himself. Not a half-bad movie either.

MB: You’ll notice no one is rushing to make The Big Bopper biopic. But here’s a guy who would have been a footnote in rock history except that he got on that ill-fated plane, forever linking him in our minds with the great Buddy Holly. Bad life choice for the Bopper, but ultimately a good career move.

Synopsis

For music fans of a certain age, Feb. 3 is a day to observe a moment of silence. Known as the day the music died, it’s the day, in 1959, when a small plane crashed outside Clear Lake, Iowa, killing rock ‘n’ rollers Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and JP “The Big Bopper” Richardson.

Lunarcy! explores the pull of the moon Interview. Simon Ennis’ documentary shares a colourful cast of characters obsessed by the moon but is careful not to poke fun

Man on the moon

“Everybody who has ever lived has had some sort of relationship to the moon. And how you relate to it says more about you than it does about the moon itself.” Simon Ennis Talking about his documentary Lunarcy!

ADAM Nayman

scene@metronews.ca

Simon Ennis’ very entertaining documentary Lunarcy! will make its theatrical premiere at the Bloor Hot Docs Theatre in Toronto before travelling to Texas in February for the ultra-hip SXSW Festival. The 32-year-old director couldn’t be happier about his outer-space-themed movie’s local launch site. “On a personal level, it means a lot to me because I basically grew up there,” says Ennis. “I worked there from the time I was 14 to the time I was 19. It was one of the places that I spent my filmgoing youth.” With its fast pace and colourful cast of characters,

Lunarcy! is the rare documentary with immediate appeal to a younger cohort. The film orbits around a carefully selected group of subjects who have in different ways spent their lives obsessing over the moon. “Everybody who has ever lived has had some sort of relationship to the moon. And how you relate to it says more about you than it does about the moon itself — it’s more of a blank slate that people can project anything onto. The ancient Greeks thought it was a mirror, and that its face was actually the Earth being reflected back at them.” One of Ennis’ subjects quite literally sees himself on the Moon — a bookish young

man named Christopher Carson with elaborate plans to relocate to the celestial body. While Carson and several of the other people profiled in Lunarcy! are eccentric, Ennis takes pains not to belittle their desires. If anything, he identifies with their outsized dreams, and says that shooting a movie in various locations across America helped him discover his own adventurous spirit. “We sort of put the movie together in the same way that the moon was formed in the first place,” he laughs. “A large body smashed into Earth and a lot of stuff got thrown up into the atmosphere and just slowly coalesced together.”

Interview. Arrested Development star talks about the move to Netflix and his new comedy project Identity Thief Ned Ehrbar

Metro World News

Being the straight man in a comedy can be a thankless job, but Jason Batemen has no problem with that. His latest, Identity Thief, finds him taking on Melissa McCarthy’s titular con woman. Plus, this spring he gets to reprise his best-loved straight man role, as put-upon Michael Bluth in Arrested Development, when the cult hit returns with new episodes on Netflix. Still, if you’ve got a more outlandish comedy role in mind, he’s willing to listen. Do you find it at all insulting to be asked how hard it is to keep a straight face opposite someone like Melissa McCarthy? No, actually, I’ve never taken it that way. That’s tough to do, and I fail miserably at it repeatedly, especially with Melissa. You’ve just got to have the camera on her alone so that when I start laughing you don’t see my shoulders bouncing up and down in the foreground. You’ve made quite a career of playing the straight man, but have you been looking for parts beyond that type? Yeah, I mean I would enjoy doing that. Send them. I’ll read them and do them. But I

get most of my opportunities doing what people have seen me do before, and I don’t think that’s too dissimilar from most actors. You kind of get offered what people expect to see you in. So it’s up to me to start to steer the ship in another direction if I want some changes. And I do, every once in a while. That was one of the things that really attracted me to a film I did with Ryan Reynolds called the Change-Up. It didn’t really work at the box office or critically, but we had a really good time doing it. Was it Melissa or writer Craig Mazin who kept adding in jokes about you having mangled junk in Identity Thief? Well, Craig’s pretty filthy. Craig wrote a script that didn’t need any ad-libbing whatsoever to make it funny, and so we didn’t do a lot of that. We would every once in a while make stuff up to crack each other up and make the crew laugh, but this isn’t one of those movies where it’s, ‘Boy, thank God those actors improvised because otherwise it wouldn’t be funny.’ Craig Mazin did a really, really

only Bluth family member to appear in each of the new episodes of Arrested Development. I believe that is true. I haven’t seen them, he’s still editing them, but that was the goal when Mitch (Hurwitz) and I talked about these episodes early on. There was a question as to whether the finances or the scheduling would allow for all of us to be in every episode, and I said, ‘Whatever it takes schedule-wise or finance-wise, I’m your guy.’ So we worked it out and we just made sure that I was done with all of my duties before I had to go off and do something else. Any word on returning guest stars? I think Mitch has already said that a few people are coming back. I think he’s mentioned Carl Weathers and Henry Winkler and ... who else did he mention? James Lipton and Andy Richter. There’s many more. And then his ideas for the movie are just insane. So hopefully Act II and Act III will happen, which is the movie. I can’t wait to see what he does with all this footage. We still have a little bit of additional stuff to do. I work one more day on it in a week or two.

Warm Bodies doesn’t stink nearly as much as I imagine its leading character would. A romcom set in an apocalyptic near-future ruled by rambling rotten corpses, the film focuses on a love-lorn zombie crushing on a gorgeous living girl. Basically a spin on Romeo and Juliet (if Romeo were dead, that is), the comedy has youthful quirk and charm, but its modesty will likely aggravate purists looking for cinematic zombie gore.

The bulk of the movie is comprised of the 17-year fight to prove the innocence of the West Memphis Three, three teens convicted on dubious evidence in 1994 of the murder of three young boys. But compelling though the story may be, the Alford Plea that earned them release from prison on the proviso they plead guilty feels like justice, once again, was not served. Real life doesn’t always work out the way we want and neither do documentaries. As a result, West of Memphis is interesting, but ultimately unsatisfying.

This story of three old hoodlums on one last adventure is slightly less than the sum of its parts. Combined, the leads — Al Pacino, Alan Arkin and Christopher Walken — bring with them more than a century of screen work, and it shows. It’s too bad, then, that the material contains Viagra jokes that would seem more appropriate in a Grumpy Old Men movie. That and the long shadow of Tarantino that blankets almost every scene leaves the film feeling less than original despite the engaging performances.

Sumptuously designed and as thrilling as any contemporary Hollywood film, the Danish A Royal Affair — nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Film — is superlative filmmaking. In it, Mads Mikkelsen stars as Struensee, an enlightened country doctor circa late-1700s Denmark who is enlisted to be the soft-headed boy-King Christian IV’s personal physician. Soon, Struensee is changing the church-run system from within, becoming a father figure to the King while engaging in a passionate affair with the lonely Queen.

“I understand parallels have been drawn because there’s a mystical element to the relationships in both of these films. I think tonally it’s very different — Warm Bodies to Twilight. There’s a lot of comedy, we don’t take ourselves too seriously. But having said that, we of course embrace comparisons in a sense because Twilight is a hugely successful franchise and if we can find half the audience that Twilight has I think we’d be very happy.” Teresa Palmer, during a recent interview in Toronto, when asked if people would compare Warm Bodies to Twilight the associated press

The secret behind Nevermind Movie. Dave Grohl’s movie, Sound City, takes a particular interest in the studio where Nirvana found their break Rock musician Dave Grohl set out to make a recording studio the subject of his first-ever film. He was intrigued not only by the studio but by a specific piece of recording equipment — a 1970s era sound board — that captured every note of music made there. Geek city, right? It sounds like an idea any sane moviegoer would run from. Instead, Sound City offers a colourful piece of music history, a candid examination of changes wrought by technology and a defiant statement about not surrendering the human element in creativity. Grohl’s rookie film made it to the Sundance movie festival, is being released theatrically Friday and is accompanied by an album featuring artists he interviewed.

The end

We’ll finally know how he met your mother CBS says the big reveal is coming for How I Met Your Mother. The network said Wednesday the sitcom will air its ninth and final season next fall. And CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler

promised that TV’s “most mysterious mother” will be unveiled as the show wraps up. That would be the mystery woman with whom Ted, played by Josh Radnor, ultimately has a family. The sitcom’s cast also includes Neil Patrick Harris, Cobie Smulders, Jason Segel and Alyson Hannigan. 20th Century Fox Television says all the actors will return for the 2013-14 season.

Dave Grohl’s Sound City takes a colourful look at a piece of music history. the associated press

“It honestly was more like a keg party with a camera than making a Hollywood film,” he said. Grohl knew nothing about the Sound City studio in Van Nuys, Calif., when he and fellow Nirvana members Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic booked a session to make Nevermind in 1991. Their California record company wanted Nirvana nearby to keep an eye on them and time at Sound City was cheap. It was in a nondescript

neighbourhood and looked like a dump, with tired shag carpeting. Then Nirvana noticed all the gold records on the wall from artists who had recorded there: Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, Van Halen, REO Speedwagon, Guns ‘n Roses, Neil Young, Cheap Trick, Slayer, Rick Springfield and more. After plugging in their instruments and running through In Bloom, Grohl and his mates discovered why. The sound, to their ears, was amaz-

The entertainment leading up to the Super Bowl is so A-list, Beyoncé may not even have the most anticipated performance surrounding the big game. Justin Timberlake is due to give his first major musical performance in years. Stevie Wonder is performing for the masses at an outdoor concert. Cee Lo Green is reuniting with his old hip-hop clique, Goodie Mob, and Rascal Flatts is teaming up with Journey for a concert. Those represent only a fraction of the all-star events to celebrate the Super Bowl. “The Super Bowl has become such a big event in itself. So many people come from everywhere, looking to not only be a part of the Super Bowl but also the festivities leading up to the game,” said Cee Lo, who is performing at ESPN’s Next event. “There’s so much to do, from parties, concerts and events.” Indeed, until the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers meet at the Superdome on Sunday, much of the emphasis in the days leading up to the event has very little to

Cast of 30 Rock faced a tearful ending to series Finale. Jane Krakowski talks to Metro about the final episode and saying goodbye MEREDITH ENGEL

Metro World News in New York

When we met up with Jane Krakowski at a Bank of America event over the holidays, the star — who plays the excitable Jenna Maroney on 30 Rock — had just four days of filming left on the NBC sitcom. She filled us in on those final days on set. Her final table read wasn’t easy It was tearful. Everyone was a little choked up because we actually acknowledge the show within the show ending, so it kind of brought it all home for us. We’d kind of been living like, ‘Yeah, I guess it’s gonna end in a few episodes,’ and suddenly we’re here. But I think the writers did a great job finishing the characters the way you want them to, and, of course, in true 30 Rock wacky style. Could her character get any wackier? (Laughs) I don’t know if that’s even possible, but I am going to miss playing her. I mean, she’s so over-the-top and high above the line of reality. I’m gonna miss it. Why ending the show is so bittersweet I think it’s a mixed bag of emotions. I’m excited to see what’s next. I’m going to miss everybody terribly. It’s just been such a great group of people, and I think that everyone on Mind the App

the show knows that this is as good as it gets. I think we’re all really proud of what we made and that we’ve made it on the air this long — it’s a lot longer than we expected. What she’s taking from the set It’s funny, because of course you want to have some memento of the seven years — but I like to say stealing is a crime and I will not be

partaking in any of that. There are numerous Jenna posters I could take, but I don’t really need those in my home — large pictures of myself. I think Tina’s taking the sign that says The Girlie Show before it was named TGS that Jenna destroyed by throwing something at, so it’s kind of broken and she’s taking it as it is. I don’t know. I’ll certainly take away all my good memories. Why Ice-T popped up in the finale There is a Law & Order reference. I think he plays his Law & Order character. Coco was there — I think Coco’s always with him. They’re a sweet couple. Everyone on the set was very excited that Coco came, too. How she’s saying goodbye It’s going to be hard. There’s about 300 people who work on our show, and so to say goodbye to each and every one of them — there will be days when you’re walking on set and pass someone and you get really emotional. You think, ‘Oh, I didn’t realize, I’m gonna miss that guy’ — those people that you see every single day.

METRO DISH OUR TAKE ON THE WORLD OF CELEBRITIES The Word

Mayer more comfortable in front of the cameras John Mayer is definitely mellowing when it comes to dealing with paparazzi. “The way that the media plays a part in everyone’s life has changed over the last several years,” he tells RollingStone. com. “I mean, I used to be incredibly put off by somebody taking a picture, thinking as if in some way it was invading my brain. But all it is, is you can see where I was last weekend. That’s all. And I think time has shown that nothing will be stolen from you. It’s just a photograph of you and your dumb scarf that you put on because it wouldn’t fit in your suitcase. Cool.”

Lo and behold, Lindsay makes it to court

Metro world news

Tip for Jennifer Lawrence: no more shopping trips now that you’re famous

Lindsay Lohan wasn’t too sick to fly after all. Despite reportedly being too under the weather to make it from New York back to L.A. this week for a Wednesday court date, the troubled actress showed up after all, wearing a little black dress and Louboutin heels, according to the Associated Press. “I’m glad to see you’re feeling better,” Judge Stephanie Sautner told Lohan at the hearing. Lohan pleaded not guilty to three misdemeanor counts stemming from a car crash last summer. If found guilty, she could face 245 days in jail because of probation violations. “She’s on probation,” Sautner said at the hearing. “The condition is that she obey all laws.”

Oscar-nominee Jennifer Lawrence recently told Metro that her Silver Linings Playbook co-star Bradley Cooper had taught her that she can’t go to the grocery store anymore now that she’s famous. “It’s fine, I can get friends to get my groceries,” she said last month.

But apparently Lawrence thought the height of awards season was a good time to try again, as she was spotted this week at a Los Angeles supermarket, buying groceries incognito under a large purple hat and a massive scarf, according to photo agency X-17.

Wash down game snacks LIQUID ASSETS

LIFE

Peter Rockwell @therealwineguy liquidassets@eastlink.ca

When it comes to pairing liquids with solids, wine has the edge over its boozy competition. After all, you’re not going to wash down haute cuisine with a brewski. Right? It really depends on where you are. In wine engaged cultures (like France and Italy), culinary artists evolved their industry in parallel with their compatriots in nearby vineyards. So, it makes sense that locals reach for vino when they put on the feed bag. Countries like the United Kingdom and Belgium — where wine production is nearly nonexistent — have a closer affinity to beer, which makes a good brew their primary dinner table mate. Since the Super Bowl is this Sunday, I’m betting most of you will be serving pub-inspired fare and drinking like the Brits as you watch the game. Not that you can’t serve wine (think something white and off dry). It’s just that aggressively flavoured finger food, the likes of Buffalo Chicken Tenders and Short Ribs, calls for something cool and thirstquenching. While a crisp Euro or Canadian lager fits the bill, I prefer mediumbodied, lightly malted ales like Newcastle Brown Ale (500 ml, $2.90 to $3.49) from England’s north east.

Bite into lighter side of Super Bowl staple Buffalo Chicken Tenders. Put aside the deep fryer and pop these crunchy snacks into the oven The key food groups of Super Bowl are meat and melted cheese, preferably deep-fried. Buffalo-style chicken wings and chicken nuggets are just the sort of deep-fried deliciousness we’re talking about. And this recipe marries the two, incredibly, in a way that satisfies the soul and keeps blood whistling through the old arteries. The chicken is luxuriated in a buttermilk bath for several hours, after which it is coated with a mixture of breadcrumbs and panko (for extra crunch), and baked in the oven. It’s not quite as crispy as a deep-fried version, but it is nonetheless ridiculously flavourful. This effect is achieved by adding a blue cheese dipping sauce, which borrows one of the trademark ingredients of Buffalo chicken wings. Traditionally, wings are tossed in a mix of hot sauce and butter after they come out of hot oil. But you don’t want to Ingredients

Smoky Turkey Turkey Meatball Grinders: soy Lunch. Burgers with Manchego residue never tasted so good Nothing says good eats like soy residue. Except that in Chinese cooking, it really can. And you very likely have enjoyed that soy residue with hoisin, a classic ingredient for sauces. Hoisin is a sauce that blends sweet-spicy-savoury flavours, a profile not all that different from ketchup. It is made from the leftover mash of fermented soy beans produced when making traditional soy sauces. That mash is combined with sugar, chilies, garlic, vinegar, salt, sometimes five-spice powder and either flour or cornstarch.

1. Heat oven to 425 F. Coat baking sheet with cooking spray.

2.

In bowl, combine egg, cilantro, scallions, garlic, ginger, lime zest, hoisin and 1/2 tablespoon salt. Mix well. Add turkey, knead with hands until mixed. Add breadcrumbs and mix again. Form into 20 balls.

The Leafs lived dangerously in the final minutes, with the Caps pressing. James van Riemsdyk also scored for Toronto (4-3-0), which outshot Washington 40-22. The Leafs had their chances to take control earlier in the game, but lack of clinical finishing and failure to convert numerous powerplay opportunities kept them frustrated before 19,374 at the Air Canada Centre.

Moore was being treated at a hospital in Grand Junction since the Jan. 24 crash. A family spokeswoman confirmed his death, the first in the 18-year history of the X Games. Moore was attempting a backflip when his snowmobile caught the lip of the landing area, sending him over the handlebars. He landed face first in the snow with his snowmobile rolling over him. Moore walked off with help and went to hospital with a concussion. He developed bleeding around his heart and was flown to Grand Junction for surgery. The family later said that Moore also had a complication involving his brain.

Raps’ Lowry excited about addition of close friend Gay Blockbuster trade. Raptors excited to welcome ‘superstar’ forward, who is the godfather of Toronto point guard’s son Kyle Lowry will happily call the Toronto Raptors his team, and is excited about sharing it with one of his best friends. While Lowry said it was tough to lose Jose Calderon and Ed Davis in Wednesday’s deal to acquire Rudy Gay, he was talking up his new teammate to reporters on Thursday, saying the team was getting a “superstar.” “It’s very exciting for me personally, and for the team and the organization because you get pretty much a superstar type player, a guy who could possibly be an all-star for the next five or six years in a row,” Lowry said of Gay. The deal that sent fan favourite Calderon ultimately to Detroit propelled Lowry back into the starting point guard position — the spot that was supposed to be his when the Raptors acquired him last offseason, but which he lost to Calderon through injury and the Spaniard’s strong play. “Now it is my team, so the burden of it being my team is definitely something I always wanted, and (I) have no problem with this being my team,” Lowry said. There will be an immediate level of comfort between Lowry and Gay. The two are good friends -— Gay is godfather to Lowry’s son — and as Lowry pointed out, “I’ve already passed the ball to Rudy before, so ... when he’s here, it’s going to be an easy transition for him and for our team I believe.” Lowry spoke to Gay soon

The view from Memphis

Grizzlies take loss of star in stride The Memphis Grizzlies have shown once before they can be contenders without Rudy Gay. It’s time to prove it again. The Grizzlies started the process of moving on Thursday after trading their leading scorer to Toronto in a three-team deal that brought Tayshaun Prince, Austin Daye and Ed Davis to Memphis. The franchise’s best post-season run came with Gay injured two seasons ago, with an upset of top-seeded San Antonio and then a thrilling sevengame Western Conference semifinal series against Oklahoma City. Before that, Memphis had never even won a playoff game. “We’ve been without Zach (Randolph). We’ve had guys go down and we’ve had to deal with it. This team is great at playing with adversity,” said point guard Mike Conley.

Raonic to kick off Davis Cup bid Milos Raonic will kick off Canada’s bid for a spot in the Davis Cup World Group quarter-finals. Raonic, ranked No. 15 on the ATP Tour, will face No. 51 Albert Ramos in the first singles match when Canada’s tie with Spain begins Friday at the Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre.

night’s home game against the Los Angeles Clippers. He isn’t scheduled to arrive in Toronto until late afternoon Friday and still needs to pass a physical. Gay, the Grizzlies’ leading scorer and a player who Raptors GM Bryan Colangelo

was believed to have been hotly pursuing for some time, had been the subject of trade speculation throughout the season as Memphis looks to unload his hefty max contract. The six-foot-eight small forward is due $16.5 million US this season with $37 million more over the next two years. Raptors coach Dwane Casey said regardless of his hefty contract, the team is getting “a talent.” Gay — taken eighth overall in the 2006 draft, seven spots after Andrea Bargnani

was selected by the Raptors — is averaging 17.2 points and 5.9 rebounds per game in what hasn’t been his strongest season. “No disrespect to our players, but at the end of the game, you’ve got a guy who can create consistently and get you two points,” Casey said. “We’ve had so many close games, that’s star time, that’s the time when we put them in the right situation, you’ve got to complete the play. the canadian press

The Ottawa Senators will have to try and build on their impressive start without one of their star forwards. Jason Spezza will undergo surgery Friday in Toronto for a herniated disc and will be out for the foreseeable future. Senators general manager Bryan Murray told reporters Thursday that it’s too early to provide a timeline for Spezza’s return, but the team is hopeful that he’ll be able to play again this season. the canadian press

Only 1 team’s road ends in victory Super Bowl preview. Both Ravens and 49ers, led by sibling head coaches, ready to battle in New Orleans The San Francisco 49ers never have tasted defeat in a Super Bowl, going 5-0. It’s the most impressive mark for any franchise in the big game. Baltimore also is undefeated, with the Ravens winning their only appearance, in 2001. Someone will have the Super Bowl blahs for the first time after Sunday’s title game in the Superdome. The Ravens, who are 3 1/2 -point underdogs, are on one of those runs reminiscent of Quoted

“I believe we have found a way to believe in each other, and nothing else matters” Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, who will retire after the game, on his

recent NFL champions. Indeed, the New York Giants reached the Super Bowl a year ago in a similar manner, winning a wild-card game at home, then two playoffs on the road, including an overtime thriller. The Giants got healthy down the stretch, something the Ravens have replicated, particularly on defence, where star linebackers Ray Lewis and Terrell Suggs are giving vintage performances following injuryshortened seasons. “That’s what’s been our road,” Lewis said. “No matter who’s been up, who’s been down, who’s been hurt, who’s been injured. We found a way to pick each other up.” These Niners are built around a physical, stingy defence — that also has been the Ravens’ persona for years, although not as much in 2012 as in Lewis’ other 17 pro seasons. Linebacker Patrick Willis, who like Lewis wears No. 52 and is a perennial All-Pro, is the anchor. “As a kid, you grew up watching,” Willis said. “Last year, we were one game away. To be able to be here is truly special.” To make it extra special, San

• San Francisco also came

up one win short a year ago, losing to the Giants for the NFC championship. That defeat has driven the 49ers just as much as the Ravens’ failure in 2011 lifted them.

Francisco’s offence will need to outdo Baltimore’s. The Ravens have scored 90 points in three games, and the Niners have 73 in two. Baltimore’s defence has made big plays against Andrew Luck, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. Now it gets an entirely different type of quarterback, Colin Kaepernick. His combination of running skill, powerful arm and surprising cool for a

PROUD SPONSOR OF THE 2013 SEASON

Tyrod Taylor is the forgotten quarterback at the Super Bowl. Everyone knows the starters, of course, Baltimore’s Joe Flacco and San Francisco’s Colin Kaepernick. They even know about Alex Smith, who started for the 49ers until he was sidelined with a concussion in November and Kaepernick stepped in. And Taylor? His resumé can be summed up on the top half of an index card: Two years, no starts and 30 passes —- 25 of them in the Ravens’ meaningless regular-season finale against Cincinnati last month. That’s because Flacco has started every game during the past five seasons and never has missed a down because of injury or ineffectiveness. Still, Taylor knows he’s only one play away from getting into the Super Bowl, and for that reason he’s practising hard this week as Sunday’s championship game draws near. “There are so many situations throughout the league where the next guy is called in, so you can’t look at how many straight games Joe has played without being injured,” Taylor said. “You never know what can happen at any second of the game. I have to be ready to take over if that happens.” The 49ers are preparing for that situation, too. While Flacco is a traditional pocket

passer, Taylor is just as likely to scoot downfield as throw the ball. He ran for 65 yards in that game against the Bengals, and at Virginia Tech he set a school record for rushing yards by a quarterback (2,196). Being a backup QB is a role Taylor takes seriously. He isn’t in the Big Easy this week to take a stroll on Bourbon Street or munch on beignets. “You have to be ready to play,” Taylor said. “That’s how you have to carry yourself throughout the week as far (as) preparation. You have to be physically prepared and mentally prepared because you never know when the opportunity may come.” the associated press

Performance enhancer

No HGH tests despite deal Count Baltimore Ravens defensive end Arthur Jones among those NFL players who want the league and union to finally agree on a way to do blood testing for human growth hormone. “It would be fair to do blood testing,” Jones said. “Hopefully they figure it out.” When the Ravens face the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl on Sunday, two seasons will have come and gone without a single HGH test being administered, even though the league and the NFL Players Association paved the way for it in the 10year collective bargaining agreement they signed in August 2011. Since then, the sides have haggled over various elements, primarily the union’s insistence that it needs more information about the validity of a test that is used by Olympic sports and Major League Baseball. the associated press

Experience, statistics and past performance will go out the window on Sunday and these six players will be expected to be top producers on one of sport’s biggest stages under the bright lights of the Super Bowl: The Associated Press Photos by Getty Images

Anquan Boldin, wide receiver

Colin Kaepernick, quarterback

Helped Arizona to 2009 Super Bowl and has been sensational in this post-season ... Has 16 receptions for 17.3-yard average and three scores, two in AFC title games ... Powerful, versatile and can outleap defenders for balls ... Made 65 catches for 921 yards and four touchdowns this season.

Dynamic player who replaced injured Alex Smith in November and kept the job ... Fast with long strides, set record for position with 181 yards rushing versus Green Bay, including 59-yard touchdown ... Strong arm, unafraid to throw into tight spots ... Excellent weapon in readoption, although Niners don’t use it that much.

3 5 1 Joe Flacco, quarterback

Has eight touchdowns and no interceptions in this post-season ... Is 8-4 in playoffs ... Outplayed top draftee Andrew Luck, then Peyton Manning, then Tom Brady in leading Ravens to Super Bowl.

Ray Lewis, inside linebacker

“The Raven,” as teammate Bernard Pollard calls him ... Emotional engine for Baltimore for entire career, retires after this game ... Missed 10 games with torn right triceps, but has been sensational in playoffs with 44 tackles ... MVP of 2001 Super Bowl, Ravens’ only championship ... Defensive Player of the Year in 2000 and ’03.

Michael Crabtree, wide receiver

Matured this season and became a true No. 1 receiver ... Led team with 85 catches, 1,105 yards and nine touchdowns ... Somehow finds way to get wide open several times a game ... Good after the catch, but needs to consider better ball security; fumbled at Atlanta 1 in conference championship.

Patrick Willis, inside linebacker

All-Pro tackling machine ... With apologies to Lewis, Willis is best linebacker in this Super Bowl — and probably best in entire league ... Has made All-Pro in five of six seasons and took Defensive Rookie of Year honours in 2007 ... Had 120 tackles, 88 solo this season.

Aries

March 21 - April 20 You will do your reputation, and maybe your bank balance too, a heap of good today by doing something that takes friends and family by surprise. People expect you to think and act in certain ways — so prove them wrong.

Taurus

April 21 - May 21 Whatever you do and however you do it, people will applaud you for a job well done. Both at home and at work you are leading a charmed life at the moment. Make the most of it. You know it won’t last!

Gemini

May 22 - June 21 What you dream of now will come true in the near future, so dream away to your heart’s content. It may be that certain people are not taking you seriously but they will soon learn the error of their ways.

Cancer

June 22 - July 23 You may be tempted to treat life as a bit of a joke over the next 24 hours, and most likely you are right to do so. The things that other people get worked up about are not worth the time or effort.

Leo

July 24 - Aug. 23 Anything is possible if you want it enough. If you really, truly desire something you will find a way to get it. Keep that thought in mind not just today but throughout the coming month. And act on it.

Virgo

Aug. 24 - Sept. 23 You won’t lack for self-belief today but watch out you don’t get overly confident and make a mess of a task you could usually do with your eyes closed. You know what comes before a fall, don’t you? Pride.

By Kelly Ann Buchanan

Crossword: Canada Across and Down

Libra

Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 Try to be a bit more cautious in your decisions today, especially if you are involved in a project that could cost you rather a lot if it goes wrong. Remember: There is no such thing as a sure thing.

Scorpio

Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 This looks like an excellent day for affairs of the heart. If there is someone you have been admiring from afar, now is the time to get up closer. Make contact and look for ways to spark a romance.

Sagittarius

Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 No matter how daunting the task that faces you today you will make a good job of it. The most important step is the first one, so stop worrying that you are out of your depth and get cracking.

Capricorn

Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 Don’t push yourself too hard today. Jupiter, planet of excess, is now moving forwards again through the wellbeing area of your chart, so you may be tempted to do something rash. You’ll regret it in the morning.

Aquarius

Jan. 21 - Feb. 19 Your task for the day is to help others — not just friends and family but people you meet out in the world as well. The best way to help, as always, is to lead by example. No one does it better than you.

Pisces

Feb. 20 - March 20 It’s OK to have fun — in fact it’s essential — but don’t go overboard and forget that you still have chores to finish and duties to fulfill. The harder you work now, the happier your weekend will be.
