Budget cuts put buildings at risk Post-secondary. Maintenance backlog at U of C hits $400M, tower’s top half closed JEREMY NOLAIS

jeremy.nolais@metronews.ca

Millions have been drained from budgets used for upkeep on everything from boiler rooms to gymnasiums at Calgary’s post-secondary institutions, and an official with the city’s largest university warns continued provincial funding lags could force some buildings into permanent closure. The University of Calgary accrues $50 to $70 million in deferred maintenance every year and it expects its total backlog to hit $400 million this year. Now, the school must contend with a nearly 40 per cent cut to provincial infrastructure maintenance funding — a byproduct of an overall draining of funding to Alberta’s post-sec-

Drastic

40%

Almost 40 per cent has been cut in provincial infrastructure maintenance funding to Alberta’s post-secondary sector

ondary sector announced in the March provincial budget. “If we don’t get our funding restored, it just gets worse and worse,” said Bob Ellard, university vice-president of facilities management and development. “Eventually, you’re in a downward spiral you can’t get out of ... it will force institutions to close buildings.” U of C’s maintenance struggle is dwarfed only by that faced at the older University of Alberta in Edmonton, which last year reported a need of more than $800 million in upkeep funding. The U of A also saw its 2013-14 maintenance budget cut, but only about half as much as the U of C’s. While the provincial advanced education ministry con-

ceded the infrastructure cuts came as a direct result of harsh “fiscal realities facing government,” a statement issued identified Alberta institutions as being in “good condition,” overall. “The province has invested $3.4 billion in post-secondary expansions over the last 10 years and an additional $1 billion in maintenance and renewal of existing buildings,” the statement reads. Calgary’s Mount Royal University, meanwhile, will be forced to make due with just one-third of the funding it had for maintenance in 2012-13. Duane Anderson, Mount Royal’s vice-president for administrative services, estimated the backlog at his school to be in the “tens of millions,” and said the newest cut will force his department to prioritize required tasks, starting with those that could pose a safety risk if not dealt with. Insufficient funding will force U of C to close the top half of one of its most storied buildings. Story, page 4.

It may be smooth sailing on Calgary’s West LRT, but commuters have found issues with nabbing a parking spot near the route stations — particularly at 69th Street S.W. METRO FILE

Regional transit could ease parking crunch: Ald. Solution? Shortage of spaces at West LRT lots has commuters getting desperate As commuters along Calgary’s West LRT line struggle to find a place to park, an area alderman is revving up talks of regional transit service for the area. On Wednesday, Metro spoke to people who were going doorto-door and posting pleas online to anyone with a reserved stall at an LRT parking lot along the west route, which opened in December, or in a nearby neighbourhood. One woman

lucky enough to get a space said she was offered $240 to part ways with it — more than triple the monthly fee charged by the city. Area Ald. Richard Pootmans said he believes much of the space crunch could be solved with a better feeder-bus system to the west line and, eventually, shuttles running into the 69th Street station from outside the city. “Absolutely, I see that in the future,” Pootmans said of regional shuttles running to the west line. “I think the sooner we start talking that up, the better, and that will take pressure off the (69th Street) parkade.”

More spaces possible

Ald. Richard Pootmans says there is the possibility of establishing a mixed-use development near Sirocco station, the second-last stop on the West LRT line, that would bring a few hundred more parking stalls to the area.

Transit officials said Wednesday the 69th Street station currently has a wait list of 600 people seeking a reserved space. As dictated by city council, up to half of an LRT lot can be set aside for reserved park-

ing, while the rest is left free on a first-come, first-served basis. But Ald. Brian Pincott maintained Thursday there’s a better way to do things. He adamantly opposed a 2010 city council decision to remove the blanket $3 Park and Ride fee for all motorists using the LRT lots. Now, Pincott suspects many of the free spaces along the West LRT are being taken by early rising commuters coming in from outside Calgary. “It was the fairest system that we had. Honestly, it was a mistake for us to remove it,” he said, before agreeing with Pootmans that more feeder-bus routes would also improve the situation. JEREMY NOLAIS/METRO

Calgary’s public consultation over what to do with $52 million in unclaimed provincial “tax room” yielded roughly 10,000 responses from citizens, according to a preliminary count. “Thousands and thousands of Calgarians participated, and I think that’s a good thing,” Mayor Naheed Nenshi said of the admittedly “experimental” endeavour, a brainchild of his that has led to some controversy. The two-week process saw Calgarians submit their feedback through a special website, in person at various shopping centres throughout the city and by calling 311. It also featured a highprofile debate at Devonian Gardens between five aldermen who each championed different options for the money and were peppered with questions by celebrity “provocateur” W. Brett Wilson, of Dragons’ Den fame. The event helped draw attention to the obscure topic of how property taxes are collected and split between the province and municipality, but it has been criticized by some as being too gimmicky. “That type of Dragons’ Den thing is entertaining, but I don’t think a worldclass city wants to give the impression that it decides its spending and taxation policies by a game show,” Preston Manning told Metro. The public feedback will be synthesized and presented to city council, which is set to decide in July what to do with the funds. ROBSON FLETCHER/METRO

Ill-repair: MacKimmie Tower’s upper half closed University of Calgary. School requests $80 million for needed preservation projects next year Jeremy nolais

jeremy.nolais@metronews.ca

Staff and students will soon be barred from using the top half of the University of Calgary’s MacKimmie Tower as the institution lacks funding to bring the facility up to code. City of Calgary regulations for the 13-storey tower, which previously served as the campus library until a new facility opened next door in late 2011, have changed and U of C estimates it will cost around $100 million to fully restore it, according to Bob Ellard, university vice-president of facilities management and development. Issues with the building envelope had made much of the facility uninhabitable anyway — particularly when it rains, Ellard said, adding $1.5 million is needed to cover off “immediate issues” at MacKimmie alone. “It’s like a piece of Swiss cheese,” he said. “It’s 40 years old.... The water’s

coming in through the roof, water’s coming through the window to the precast concrete.” The U of C has struck a deal with the city that will see it close access to the top seven floors no later than January. Its closure will mean the institution has 120,000 square feet less space on campus, at least for the time being; a problem exacerbated by projections released this week that found the U of C to be operating 9.4 per cent above its existing physical-space capacity. The struggles at MacKimmie come as U of C contends with a near-40 per cent cut to provincial infrastructure maintenance funding. The storied tower is not alone in its struggles either as building envelope problems are also plaguing the original university administration building, which opened in 1956 and is the oldest facility on campus, as well as the Science A facility. Elsewhere, air-handling systems keep running well past their recommended life-cycle and could break any day, Ellard said. Raphael Jacob, president of both the U of C Students’ Union and the Council of Alberta University Students, said repeated efforts have been made in recent years to lobby the province for

better maintenance funding. “It’s not the type of stuff that would put people in danger or anything, but when you have been around the campus for a few years it’s little things you start to notice,” he said. “The equipment and technology may be outdated ... then there’s building problems. A lot of it, students may not necessarily see or appreciate.” Ellard said that while the university in recent years

has relished tens of millions in donations for facilities like the new library and a soon-to-be-constructed teaching institute, private funding for general upkeep is non-existent. “The money for a new building is great, but we still are left with the problems of existing buildings,” he said. “We are turning over every rock, for lack of a better term, to deal with our deferred maintenance problem.”

Poppy Plaza a cold reminder of veterans’ sacrifices

Unacceptable? AHS boss: Persistently long ER wait times a ‘disappointment’ Emergency-room wait times in Calgary and Edmonton have shown some signs of improvement in recent years but are still far off Alberta Health Services’ targets, according to new data. “That has been a disappointment for me,” AHS CEO Chris Eagle said Thursday at a news conference the provincial health authority convened to discuss its latest performance report. AHS has struggled to meet its target of admitting 75 per cent of hospital in-patients from emergency departments in under eight hours. Among the province’s 15 busiest ERs, the final mark for 2012-13 came in at just 45 per cent, which AHS classifies as “outside acceptable range.” Wait times have improved “dramatically” since 2010, Eagle said, but he also noted the latest numbers “just don’t look that good.” He also said AHS is continuing to work toward delivering more community-based primary health care.

Health-care measurement

Emergency department wait times “can be a measure of access to the health-care system and a reflection of efficient use of resources,” according to the AHS report. The latter half of 2012-13 was actually worse than the first half, with just 43 per cent of patients being admitted to hospital from ERs in under eight hours.

“Having that kind of access to care in the community should help get people treated earlier and faster so they may not actually need to get to the emergency department,” he said. Other countries have found success with that approach, Eagle added. “In other parts of the world they use primary care differently,” he said. “They have clinics that are open so you can get the care that you need at the right time and in the right place.” Robson Fletcher/metro

This weekend, Poppy Plaza will officially open to the public. As someone who lives nearby, for years I’ve been watching the area around Memorial Drive and 10 Street NW be developed. What was once a small park featuring grass and big trees has been completely transformed into what will now be a part of The Landscape of Memory project. After years of delays and rebuilding, on the eve of the official opening, I have to admit, I’m kind of underwhelmed. Now, before you rush to your computers to complain to the editor that I’m insensitive to this country’s veterans (because I know some of you will), let me tell you that I am typing every letter of this column as slowly as possible, for fear

Walk in the park

To me a memorial park should inspire, it should be a quiet place where you can relax with your friends and family and appreciate how lucky we are to live in Canada. of being accidentally disrespectful. As someone whose family fought in the Second World War, I’m thrilled that the city will so prominently display a park memorializing the soldiers who’ve sacrificed so much, especially because I know I’ve never had to. That being said, having spent the last few weeks wandering around the plaza, which, according to the city, was built with the themes of remembrance, legacy and history, I think people would have a greater appreciation for a space that is respectful and beautiful, not cold and industrial. I think the city did a fantastic job when it updated

Central Memorial Park along 4 Street SW. It offers those in the neighbourhood a place to relax, refresh and remember. On the other side of the river, Poppy Plaza seems designed to stop you cold in your tracks and remind you of the brutality of war. Which, again, in an effort to be as sensitive as possible, is something that should never be forgotten, but a daily reminder while you’re walking your dog or out for a run may be too ominous and depressing. Maybe it’s the fact that the plaza is framed by giant metal structures, or that the word “solace” is spelled out in giant foreboding letters, but I can’t imagine people

actually wanting to go to Poppy Plaza, other than on Remembrance Day. To me a memorial park should inspire, it should be a quiet place where you can relax with your friends and family and appreciate how lucky we are to live in Canada. Instead, Poppy Plaza is essentially a rusty skate park, proven by the fact that the city has already had to install signs warning skateboarders to stay away. But with benches that are essentially little ramps, that may be easier said than done. Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe I come from a spoiled generation that thinks any new city space should be either a beautiful and modern area, or a classic park with big trees and soft grass. Maybe what I need is some perspective, which is why I’m planning on attending the opening on Saturday. I look forward to honouring the veterans that will be in attendance and the ones who will never be able to do so.

Take Off Your Clothes and put on someone else’s later this month

A lineup at Take Off Your Clothes 2012. contributed/Stacey Savage

Fashionistas, rejoice! Later this month, Calgarians will have the chance to exchange their unwanted clothing for others’ threads at the city’s sixth Take Off Your Clothes clothing swap. “It’s a bit of a win-win for everybody,” said Vanessa Erickson, co-director for the Calgary chapter and member of The SWAP Team.

Participants can buy a $15 admission ticket for the June 23 event, and can drop off their clothing pieces ahead of time or on the day of. Each article of clothing that is deemed to be in good condition and in style will translate into one ticket for the clothing’s donor to then use to pick out a new item. Remaining clothing is donated to charity.

“It’s our goal to have 6,000 pieces of clothing,” said Erickson. While the swap is generally mostly women’s clothing, Erickson said there will be a men’s section. Kids’ clothing is not accepted. Take Off Your Clothes will be held at Balmoral School at 220–16 Ave. N.W. from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Katie Turner/ Metro

The city could soon be filled with secret agents, all on a mission to learn more about nature and connect with Calgary parks. That’s the intent behind a new mobile app launched by the City of Calgary in partnership with Encana and the Get to Know Program, an organization that aims to connect youth with nature. The app is the first of its kind designed by Get to Know. The OISEAU: Agents of Nature app was launched Thursday at the Devonian Gardens, one of seven city parks outfitted with QR codes, which can be scanned on the app to reveal challenges. “It’s not a game you can play at home — you have to get outside and do it,” said Kym McCulley with the city’s parks department.

Tyler Finley, program developer with Get to Know, explained there are four variations of the game at each park, and explorers are tasked with collecting “nesteggs” and points, which they get by solving nature-related challenges. “It’s designed to take them to all the parks. If they visit all the parks, they’ll have a chance to solve the huge storyline.” Students from A.E. Cross were among the first to test the app, running around Devonian Gardens, iPads in hand. “I’ve never really been here before so it’s cool that

you have to explore around and find the clues,” said Grade 8 student Tatiana Vacey. McCulley said they hope to see families utilizing the app.

‘I’m accountable to my constituents’: Alberta MP Rathgeber quits Tory caucus Politics. Concerned over Harper’s ‘lack of transparency,’ local politician declares himself Independent, refuses to give up seat

Edmonton MP Brent Rathgeber says there is a lack of commitment to transparency in the government. Jason Franson/the canadian press

Alberta MP Brent Rathgeber says he no longer answers to the Prime Minister’s Office and the government can’t force him to resign his seat. Rathgeber quit the Conservative caucus on Wednesday night to become an Independent over what he calls the Stephen Harper government’s “lack of transparency.” “I have reluctantly come to the inescapable conclusion that the government’s lack of support for my (private

You will recall that in 2006 ...

But the preliminary emails and tweets that have come into the office show anything but unhappiness. Rathgeber said he isn’t out to hurt the government. “I am not trying to break up the government.

Eggplant pizza anyone? How about tandoori with beets? Avatara pizza is looking for some cheesy pizza topping suggestions to create a Nenshi pizza. The contest aims to raise money to help a microfinance

group that offers loans to people in third-world countries. “Microfinance isn’t necessarily about finance; it’s about reducing poverty,” said Ryan Wright, owner of Avatara pizza. “Kleos is already seeing huge change happening. Interestingly, most of the loans have been given to women.” A portion of the proceeds will go to Kleos microfinance group, a not-for-profit that offers small, manageable loans to help create sustainable businesses. “I’d like to see a pineapple

and bacon pizza,” said Calgarian Rob Lehnert. “It’s a saucy combination and one I think Nenshi would like.” Votes for the toppings can be sent to Avatara’s Twitter account (@avataratweets) using the hashtag #mayor bytheslice. On June 23, the top three finalists will be announced. Then a panel of three celebrity judges, including popular local foodie Dan Clapson and Mayor Nenshi himself, will hold a vote to decide which one will be deemed the true “Nenshi pizza.”

Safety patrollers take a break from crosswalks to celebrate their success at Heritage Park Safety was in the spotlight Thursday as thousands of Calgary school patrollers took time out from traffic control to celebrate their efforts. Heritage Park was filled with over 7,000 enthusiastic patrollers, joined by the Calgary Police Service and AMA, to recognize the importance of safety at the annual Patroller’s Picnic. Blaze Layton, a Grade 6 second-year Lt. patroller from Fish Creek Elementary School, said safety is one of the reasons why he got involved.

“I really like being a leader and a captain,” said Layton. “Safety is really important. I always walk my little brother across the street when I’m at home, too.”

Twenty-three awards are given out based on nominations by the safety patrollers’ teachers throughout the year, with categories ranging from most improved patroller to patroller of the year. “These kids work so hard in keeping their crosswalks safe,” said Eva den Haan, regional co-ordinator for AMA school safety patrol. “It’s particularly special this year because it’s 75 years with no injuries or fatalities where the patrollers have been on site.” Allison Parder/For Metro

Used Cars to be Goldring not $ guilty of refusing sold for 1.00 breathalyzer test Edmonton. PMO issues statement saying MP can rejoin Tory caucus An Alberta MP has been found not guilty of failing to provide a breath sample during a police checkstop and is being welcomed back into the governing Conservative fold. A provincial court judge ruled Peter Goldring wasn’t trying to avoid taking a test, but was simply asking questions that any person in his situation would have asked when officers pulled him over. “The questions that Mr. Goldring was asking do not suggest he was just buying time,” Edmonton Judge Larry Anderson said in a written decision Thursday. “He was obviously in a dilemma. The questions were basically those that one might expect a detainee would ask a lawyer if that option were available.” Goldring said the trial highlighted problems with random roadside checkstop legislation. Police are obliged to wait 15 minutes before administering the test if the detainee has just had a drink and Goldring said the rights of people who have been detained are unclear during that time. “Many, many people have indecision, they have difficul2-weekend event

Outside court, he told reporters it was too early to know his political future, suggesting he could try to cross the floor or even run in Edmonton’s upcoming civic election.

Carl Holst, Sales Manager of StampedeToyota, just announced plans to hold a One dollar used car and truck sales event Taking Place, Tomorrow, for one day only, Saturday June 8 2013. According to Mr. Holst record sales from the last few months have resulted in an overstock of trade-ins. “In the last three months our sales have increased at a tremendous rate”, Holst said. “Now, we must reduce the number of cars and trucks on our used lot to a more manageable number. During this One dollar sale every used car and truck will be sold for hundreds or thousands below its original price.” Mr. Holst said. “In fact, cars that normally sell for five to eight thousand dollars will be sold for three to five thousand,” Mr. Holst said. “Our customers will find these prices even lower than at wholesale auctions.” Auction bidding often inflates the true value of a car so you pay more. Here every car is on sale, first come first served and no bidding. It’s the perfect opportunity

to get a good quality new or used car at the lowest price possible, including cars for only One dollar. All cars will be on display at Stampede Toyota on Barlow Trail,

2 blocks North of the Trans Canada Highway. At 8:00 am all vehicles will be opened so that buyers may inspect the vehicles for one hour before the sale begins at 9:00am when the prices are posted on the windshield you will be given the first opportunity to purchase the vehicle at the sale price. This innovative approach to selling used vehicles will make it easy and quick for anybody in the market for a good used vehicle to get a great car or truck at a very low price with no hassle. “Wholesale buyers will be represented to take

trade-ins during the sale,” Mr. Holst said. “We also have three business managers who will help buyers arrange low-cost financing. We’ve got over $10 Million Dollars in inventory to choose from. Our total inventory will be close to 400 new and used cars and trucks. We want to remind everyone that this is a one-day sale only. When our inventory has been reduced, we will remove the sale prices and return to normal operations. Since we are a local business we would like to give back to the community,” Mr. Holst said. “We would rather allow local people to buy these overstocked vehicles than wholesale them at an auction.” All cars will be reduced every hour and then there will be 6 cars that will be reduced every hour until they get to $1.00. These special $1.00 sale cars are in a separate section at the front of the dealership. Due to the volume of sales during this event, please no telephone inquiries.

Pope weighs in on food waste Study. UN food agency research finds that one-third of food produced in the world is lost or wasted Kieron Monks

Pope Francis added his voice to the growing campaign against food waste on World Environment Day, attacking a “culture of waste” that is “stealing from the table of those who are poor and hungry”. Awareness around the campaign has grown rapidly, with the European Parliament recently adopting a resolution to halve food waste in member states by 2025. There have already been successes, such as household waste in the U.K. dropping 8 per cent over two years. Activists welcomed the Pope’s remarks. “It is important, and what

he said was right,” said Tristram Stuart, founder of activist group Feeding the 5000, part of the EU FUSIONS initiative (Food Use of Social Innovation by Optimising Waste Prevention Strategies). “Wasting imported food means the locals in food-insecure areas cannot buy it, so it is taken off their table.” But the focus should be more on the suppliers, Stuart claimed. “Retailers shouldn’t deflect attention to the consumer, most food waste is in the supply chain. But con-

sumers have the responsibility to ensure the businesses we buy from every day are held to account.” One strategy is to audit the supply and release comprehensive figures on waste, with several European parliaments considering such a proposal. Stuart is optimistic that agreements can be reached. “Compared to other campaigns like climate change, food waste is something that strikes people as instinctively wrong, from a taxi driver in Delhi to a CEO in New York, and there are relatively simple solutions.” International supermarkets have been slow to commit to waste cutting proposals, but Charlie Clutterbuck of the U.K. Food Ethics Council recommends people can influence them by buying closer to home. “Localism is a solution,” he told Metro. “If there is a network to link local initiatives it will stop food prices rising, make us less dependent and change the supply model.”

Miss World pageant covers up Indonesia. Pageant contestants will have to opt for more conservative sarongs instead of bikinis

A Muslim woman wearing a veil sits in front of foreign tourists wearing bikinis on Kuta beach in Bali. Controversy over the pageant has been mounting in Indonesia, which has a reputation as a tolerant, pluralist society. getty images

Miss World has axed the famed bikinis from this year’s pageant in Indonesia, replacing the skimpy swimsuits with conservative beach sarongs amid mounting protests from hard-line Muslim groups, organizers said Thursday. All of the more than 130 contestants will be required to wear Bali’s traditional long sarongs instead of the sexy bikinis that are historically part of the competition, said Adjie S. Soeratmadjie of the RCTI,

the official broadcaster and local organizer. Parts of the pageant will take place on the resort island of Bali and the final round will be held Sept. 28 near the capital, Jakarta. Indonesia is the world’s most populous Muslim country. “There will be no bikini in this year’s Miss World pageant to respect our traditional customs and values,” Soeratmadjie said, adding that the London-based Miss World Organization is on board with the decision. “This is a sensitive issue in Indonesia. We have discussed it since last year and they have agreed,” he said. The chairwoman of the Miss World Organization, Julia Morley, confirmed that none of the 137 contestants would wear a bikini.

“Indonesia is designing for us a very beautiful onepiece beachwear, and I’m very happy with them,” she told The Associated Press by phone from London, adding that the pageant will include a special beachwear fashion show. “I don’t think Indonesia is the only country that has that culture,” Morley said. “But we like to work in the manner respectful to every country, and I cannot see why when you go to somebody’s country you should not behave respectfully.” The pageant began in the 1950s, and the first winner was crowned in a two-piece bathing suit. Soeratmadjie said the sarong would be made creatively and designed specifically for the event. the associated press

Health minister tables bill to tighten rules on injection sites The federal government has introduced tough new rules for supervised drug-injection sites, in a move some see as an effort to deter such facilities. The government says it’s a response to a Supreme Court of Canada ruling that ordered the Conservatives to keep a Vancouver clinic open against their will.

But NDP health critic Libby Davies said the government is effectively blocking any chance of setting up a new clinic. The new legislation would require advocates of new clinics to meet two dozen specific criteria before they can apply to open a new clinic. Among other things, they would have to canvass

community opinion and gain the support of provincial and municipal authorities. The health minister would then make the final decision. As Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq tabled her bill on Thursday, she made it clear which way she will lean. “Our government believes that a site involving the use

of illicit substances should be strictly controlled to protect everyone in the community,” she told reporters. “Accordingly, we believe that the application process needs to be changed to create formal opportunities for local voices to be heard and their views considered before an exemption would be considered.” the canadian press

Codeine meds risky for kids

Chavez awarded journalism prize

Health Canada says children under the age of 12 should not be given codeine-based medication. That means prescription pain drugs and cough syrups containing codeine should not be used in this age group.

The late Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez has been awarded the country’s National Journalism Prize even though he was accused of persecuting the press during his 14 years in power. The foundation voted unanimously to give Chavez the prize because he gave voice to “the oppressed of the world” and fought a “constant battle against media lies.”

It wasn’t something he ate The Duke of Edinburgh attends a garden party at Buckingham Palace on Thursday. Queen Elizabeth II’s husband was later admitted to a London hospital for an exploratory operation.

A weekend dance party landed two teens and one young adult in the intensive care unit after they overdosed on a drug known as “liquid ecstasy” or the “date rape drug.” Police found the three Vancouver partygoers, all suspected of overdosing on GHB, when responding to a disturbance at a dance party hosted by a local promoter. As police dispersed a crowd of 100 young people, a 20-year-old man was carried out of the hall unresponsive and “foaming at the mouth.” Shortly after, patrols found a 15-year-old boy and a 14-year-old girl, unconscious and foaming at the mouth. All three were taken to the intensive care unit. Police are encouraging parents to speak to their children about “the harmful and potentially lethal consequences of consuming both recreational and prescription drugs,” Vancouver police spokesman Sgt. Randy Fincham said in a statement.

GHB’s street names

Gamma hydroxybutyrate (GHB), as a street drug, is also known as fantasy, G, liquid ecstasy, liquid X, grievous bodily harm, organic quaalude, salty water, scoop, soap, easy lay, vita-G and georgia home boy.

GHB, gamma-hydroxybutyric acid, is used as an anesthetic in medical settings, but it is also used as an intoxicant as an illegal street drug. Consuming the drug along with alcohol is dangerous and potentially lethal, as it can lead to vomiting and unconsciousness. It can take form as a white powder or can be dissolved in water to form a clear, odourless solution. It’s typically manufactured in illegal drug labs, meaning consumers have no control over what they’re actually consuming. Emily Jackson/Metro in Vancouver

Southwest Montana.

Karen Sciascia of Red Hill, Pa., and a guide were fishing the Big Hole River on Saturday when they spotted a cow moose with a calf trying to cross the river. “We were watching this adult female struggling back and forth, and we didn’t see a baby until we got close,” Sciascia told the Missoulian on Thursday. “Mom kept pushing — the current was pretty swift. “The mother bolted and took off across the river. She was trying to get across the main portion of the channel, and even she struggled.” When the calf stepped off the gravel bar into the water to follow its mother, it was swept downstream. “It was small, and the river was swift,” Sciascia said. “It was too small to ever fight

No beef with beef. E. coli outbreak hasn’t shaken consumer confidence Canadian cattle producers say an E. coli outbreak that made 18 people sick and led to an extensive beef recall last fall hasn’t managed to shake consumer confidence in beef. Canada Beef Inc. — the industry’s marketing arm ­ — said Canadians’ total beef consumption last year was up 2.2 per cent from 2011. Chairman Chuck MacLean said the industry supports the findings of an independent review that blamed lax attitudes by federal inspectors and staff at the XL Foods plant in Brooks, Alta., for the tainted meat. Canada Beef said it also supports Ottawa’s plan to tighten the rules for meat plants and add more inspections. “I like the 30 recommendations and I think a lot of them are already being enacted,” MacLean said Thursday from his cattle feedlot

business in Bow Island in southeastern Alberta. “Going forward you learn from whatever missteps that we have had in the industry. Hopefully we will fix that and do a better job.” MacLean said consumers can help reduce the risk of contracting E. coli by properly handling and cooking beef. The industry is also lobbying Health Canada for permission to use irradiation on beef products to kill E. coli. MacLean said the foodsafety system can’t be made perfect, but proper safeguards can help catch and detect glitches before they have a chance to become a serious problem. “We are putting safeguards in place so that hopefully if somebody is just having a bad day, that it doesn’t get past them,” MacLean said. the canadian press

Americans were outraged Thursday that the biggest wireless carrier in the United States, Verizon, is providing the feds with logs of customer phone calls, but politicians brushed off their concerns by pointing out the practice has been in place for seven years and is aimed at nabbing terrorists. “I’m a Verizon customer; I don’t mind Verizon turning over records to the government,” said Lindsey Graham, a Republican senator harshly critical of the Obama administration’s surveillance of reporters’ calls and emails.

Bank of Canada

Poloz looks to keep low interest rates New Bank of Canada governor Stephen Poloz is signalling there will be no shift from the current low interest rate policy under his leadership, at least in the short term, despite fears it is creating imbalances in the economy. Although keeping rates low for a long period has a distorting impact on the economy, including triggering excessive borrowing, Poloz says the central bank must also consider the risk to the fragile economy of raising rates too soon. “My concern is we do the right thing so this (weak economy) doesn’t last for a generation,” he told the Commons finance committee Thursday. “For now ... we don’t see that those risks (from low rates) are manifesting themselves in a threatening way.” Scotiabank economist Derek Holt said Poloz’s testimony suggests that he may be even more dovish toward monetary policy than Carney.

Toronto resident and former sommelier Alain Laliberte owns about 160,000 wine labels, carefully stored in 123 shoeboxes. He has contacted Guinness World Records because he is confident he has enough to break the current high of 16,349 labels. Of course, he hasn’t managed to taste the contents of all 160,000 bottles. But with an average of 5,000 wines sampled per year, he’s not that far off.

Strawberry fields under the weather At least 40 per cent of Nova Scotia’s strawberry industry, a sector worth about $18 million annually, has been damaged by an insect-borne virus, provincial Agriculture Minister John MacDonell said Thursday. The virus is carried by aphids and has been detected in the Debert area, near Truro, as well as the Annapolis Valley. But MacDonell said he wasn’t worried about the possibility of the virus spreading much further because of the relatively short distances aphids travel. The affected plants aren’t harmful to eat but they are often stunted and can’t be sold, and berries may disappear from the plants. The Associated Press File

Synopsis

SCENE

This new buddy comedy pairs Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn for the first time since 2005’s Wedding Crashers. They are Nick and Billy, two wild and crazy guys whose sales jobs are made obsolete in the technological age. Unable to get a foothold in the new media field they crash Google’s Mountain View, Calif. headquarters and become “noogles” in hopes of landing gigs as interns, despite having no experience with computers. “We’re looking at some sort of mental Hunger Games against a bunch of genius kids for just a handful of jobs,” says Nick. • Richard: ••••• • Mark: •••••

Reel Guys

RICHARD CROUSE AND MARK BRESLIN

Searching for laughs The Internship. Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn fail to rekindle that Wedding Crashers magic in this poor man’s version of Revenge of the Nerds Richard: Mark, this is the funniest infomercial I’ve ever seen. As a comedy movie it doesn’t rate that high, but as an advertisement for Google it’s a knee slapper. I’ve seen product placement in movies before, but this is something else. By the time Rose Byrnes’ character says, “I believe what we do here makes people’s lives better,” I was ready to worship at the

Church of the Sacred Search Engine. We also learn that Google is ranked as the best place to work in America. That’s all great, but I was hoping for more laughs with my infomercial. What did you think? Mark: Ugh! The shameless corporate tie-in made me want to take a shower. And it opens up the door for less savoury companies to do the same thing: can Monsanto: The Movie be far behind? It’s too bad, because the leads are great, and it’s a great premise — but I didn’t laugh once. It could have been a version of Animal House set at a business behemoth, but comes off as a bad Revenge of the Nerds. The idea would make a

eyewear

great reality series, but the movie flops and feels engineered from the first frame onwards. RC: I’m not so sure I thought the leads were great. There are some laughs in The Internship. Unfortunately, very few of them are generated by Vaughn and Wilson. The chemistry that made Wedding Crashers such a big hit eight years ago is still in place, but the material isn’t. They still banter a blue streak but it feels tired and old, like many of the jokes. The two luddites at a tech mecca should have been workable, but it often feels like laughing at grandpa because he can’t figure out how to work the remote.

MB: I meant the leads are great, but not in this movie! Everything seems laboured, underscored, and over directed. These two guys may preach the value of eccentricity in the workplace, but the script defies their goal at every turn. It’s a very conventional movie that’s even a little smarmy at times. The old Vince Vaughn would have made fun of the sentimentality that crowds any good moments out of the picture. And Wilson’s role is just too vaporous to register. RC: Perhaps next time the screenwriters can Google some better jokes. MB: I say Yahoo! to that.

The Angels’ Share

The Purge

Director. Ken Loach

Director. James DeMonaco

Stars. Paul Brannigan, John Henshaw, Gary Maitland

Stars. Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey

•••••

•••••

After narrowly escaping jail, Scottish hell-raiser Robbie (Paul Brannigan) tries to create an honest life for his new family. Filmed and set in Glasgow, the first hour has a natural vibe; a rawness and realism that almost feel like a documentary, but it switches in the latter half to a grimly funny caper film. It’s an unlikely feel-good movie with good performances and loads of lyrical Scottish accents. The standout here is Brannigan, who is so charismatic in his debut performance it’s hard to believe he’s never acted before stepping in front of Ken Loach’s camera.

To call The Purge cooked-up is an injustice to baked goods. A dystopian futuristic thriller about a family enduring an annual 12-hour government-backed event whereby crimes of any sort are legal (somehow this curbs violence the other 364 days of the calendar?) is as contrived and callous as cinema gets. If the filmmaker’s aim was to create a moral allegory akin to A Clockwork Orange, he didn’t even come within an eyelash.

There’s not much ‘Buzz’ in space: Aldrin While astronaut Buzz Aldrin enjoys movies about space, he doesn’t always think they get it right. His main point of contention after seeing After Earth: “There was a lot of noise. In space, you don’t get that much noise.” Aldrin, who followed Neil Armstrong onto the surface of the moon during the historic Apollo 11 landing in 1969, says that “noise doesn’t propagate in a vacuum. We talked over headsets.” Aldrin enjoyed the father-son dynamic between Will Smith and son Jaden, but thought there was a little too much “shoot’em-up” for his taste. “I hope the aliens are more peaceful than they are in this film, wherever they are,” Aldrin joked. the associated press

Much ado about comics and TV Beauty in the Bard. Much Ado About Nothing director Joss Whedon has looked to Shakespeare for most of his work Some might find it strange that Joss Whedon’s first movie since The Avengers — his 2012 megahit about a team of Marvel Comics superheroes — is an independent adaptation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. But it makes perfect sense to him. The man who created TV hits like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spinoff Angel says his dramas all have a bit of the Bard in them. “When you’re working in Marvel Comics — whether it’s comics or the cinematic universe — you’re cribbing from Shakespeare,”

Director Joss Whedon the associated press

Whedon said in a recent interview. “The big themes, the big emotions, its kings, and betrayal and love and tragedy and that good stuff, and even in the way I write, any time you get to write about

an Asgardian, there’s going to be a touch of the Elizabethan in there.” While Much Ado debuts in theatres next Friday, Whedon’s focus is already on Avengers 2 — due out in 2015 — and his upcoming Marvel-based TV series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which premieres on ABC this fall. Whedon acknowledges he does feel “pressure” to follow up on the success of The Avengers — the third highest-grossing film ever. The comic book enthusiast says The Avengers seems perfectly normal to him — a world where Thor, Iron Man and Captain America “hang out” — and he was able to readily convey that to a wider audience. “This is how the world is meant to be. These guys are going to hang out and save the world and then they’re going to get really mad at each other.” The Associated Press

It’s the end of the world as (Seth and Evan) know it ... This is the End. Superbad writers talk the apocalypse, comedy and condoms Liz Brown

liz.brown@metronews.ca

The kings of the buddy comedy are back with a film of apocalyptic proportions. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have been friends since childhood and writing partners since high school, where they first penned Superbad. Their new collaboration, This is the End, features an ensemble cast of some of their favourite past co-conspirators. Rogen, Jay Baruchel, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson (all playing themselves) hunker down in Franco’s house during the end of the world. A veritable list of Hollywood’s who’s who round out the cast with bit parts: Michael Cera, Rihanna, Channing Tatum, Paul Rudd, Jason Segel and more have a role to play in the rapture. Recently Metro caught up with the Vancouver-bred pals in Toronto over (fittingly) a bottle of Molson Canadian.

There’s a lot of self-deprecation in the movie. Was it hard to get the actors to poke fun at themselves? Evan: The studios were kind

Michael Cera was wild, with the cocaine and sex... Seth: He was so crazy, it kind of raised the bar for everyone. There was a lot of peer pressure involved in making this movie. It was like well Michael did THAT so you don’t want to be the guy who says no to doing something. Evan: It wasn’t like when an actor finished their bit they went back to their trailer. They stayed with all the other actors because everyone was excited. It’s the end of the world, you can only have three survival items. What are they? Evan: Three of these four: water, food, guns, condoms. Seth: The thing about guns is they can help you acquire any other items you may need... Evan: But you don’t want venereal disease. Seth: With a gun, you can get condoms. Evan: True. Wouldn’t condoms depend on who you were with? Evan: Condoms are just always a good idea. Seth: You can fill them with water and play with them. Final question. What would be the last thing you guys would say to each other? Seth: You are nothing without me.

Space to add those extra leaves to your dining room table.

Evan: And then we had the people-play-themselves idea separate, and until we combined them, it didn’t seem like the apocalypse thing was a full idea to us.

Seth: The actors were really into it. I don’t think anyone said no based on content. We were going out to these actors to see if they would play themselves so they were overwhelmingly psyched about it, so it was nice to see that some people thought it was a good idea.

Seth Rogen talks about the end of the world in Toronto last month.

SILVERADO BLVD SW

This idea was spawned from a short you wrote in 2007 called Jay & Seth vs. The Apocalypse. How did it turn into a full-length movie? Seth: It took us a really long time to think of a way to expand it, honestly. We just couldn’t think of where it would go, so it really took us four years of just kicking around the idea to really even get what type of full length movie it could be.

of frightened by the concept of actors playing themselves.

More room for life.

Evan: Hahaha Seth: The laugh is probably what would actually happen. Evan: I hope my last moment is just hahaha.

Krasinski is hosting Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center’s annual fundraiser, set for Wednesday evening. Fellow Massachusetts native Matt Damon has hosted previous fundraisers.

Buzzy shows starring Toni Collette, Josh Holloway, Malin Akerman and Bethenny Frankel are joining a revamped CTV lineup, but the network is touting a relative scarcity of new series as testament to a consistent, stable schedule. The market leader notes it’s picked up only four new dramas, two new comedies and one new unscripted series for prime time this fall. They include the Collette thriller Hostages, also featuring Dylan McDermott and Tate Donovan; Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., created by Joss Whedon; the paranormal drama The Tomorrow People and the police drama Played. The Whedon show will anchor a whole new lineup Tuesday, to be followed by the ’80s-set family comedy The Goldbergs and the new sitcom Trophy Wife, starring Bradley Whitford and Akerman. The night is capped by Person of Interest, which jumps to CTV after previously airing on City. Meanwhile, budding chefs are the stars of Junior Masterchef, a spin-off of the culinary competition series that will showcase talented kids between the ages of eight and

The Daily Show with John Oliver? Well, it beats being a drug mule The other John. Comedian didn’t hesitate at the chance to fill in at the anchor desk Since 2006, John Oliver has proved his mettle as a phoney journalist on The Daily Show. Serving in numerous “reporting” roles on the spoof newscast, but chiefly as senior British correspondent, the Birmingham, England-born Oliver is school-boyish, poker-faced and emphatic in explaining America to itself — whether the topic is Occupy Wall Street, gun control or the N-word. And he’s satisfied that his accent from across the pond makes anything he says, however offkilter, sound authoritative here in the New World. Recently Oliver said a simple “yes” to his boss, Jon Stewart, who means to take the summer off to make a feature film and

John Oliver will substitute-anchor for eight weeks of new shows before Jon Stewart’s return on Sept. 3. Charles Sykes/The associated Press

asked Oliver to fill in for him at the Daily Show anchor desk. “I’ll say yes to anything he

wants me to do,” Oliver explains at the Daily Show offices in midtown Manhattan. “I owe

him so much — he brought me over here (to the U.S.) seven years ago — so I’ll do anything

Media partner

he wants, whether it’s hosting his show or operating as a drug mule between here and

Bogota. As it happens,” adds Oliver, looking relieved, “what he wanted was just hosting this show.” In the coming months, Stewart will be directing and producing Rosewater from his own script based on a book by Iranian journalist Maziar Bahari, who was falsely accused of being a spy and imprisoned by the Iranian government in 2009 while covering Iran’s presidential election. And starting Monday, Oliver will preside on The Daily Show (which airs at 11 p.m. EDT Mondays through Thursdays on Comedy Central). He will substitute-anchor for eight weeks of new shows before Stewart’s return on Sept. 3. “He’s got all the talents and he’s gonna be great,” declared Stewart in a separate interview. “And he can handle the speed of it. You want somebody in that position for everybody else on the staff, so they don’t feel they have to slow down.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Interview. Former Alexisonfire frontman Dallas Green talks about his depression after leaving band he helped form

Alan Cross scene@metronews.ca

Two years ago, Little Hell granted City and Colour’s Dallas Green his greatest success yet — platinum sales, his first chart-topping album and eventually, a Juno Award for songwriter of the year. So naturally, as he toured his most popular record yet, he was miserable. That Green was blue had nothing to do with Little Hell, which he liked, but instead a heavy secret he’d been toting: the 32-year-old had already decided to depart the beloved post-hardcore band he’d helped to found more than a decade earlier, Alexisonfire, but news wouldn’t reach the public until months later.

Master of Puppets/ Misstallica Tribute bands have their own subculture. Below that, though, are all-female bands paying tribute to all-male bands. Start with this and move on to Vag Halen and AC/DShe.

This mash-up by Israeli DJ Noyaloosha works astonishingly well. Can we just go ahead and declare Get Lucky the song of the summer already?

“Making Little Hell, I knew I had left the band,” he recalled during a recent interview at an east Toronto bar. “I was lying to all the public, right? ... And that really (messed) me up.” It took making The Hurry and the Harm — out Tuesday — to help heal Green. As he was wrapping up the Little

Hell tour, he “rekindled his relationship” with the rest of Alexisonfire and they announced plans for a farewell jaunt. He decided to work quickly, wanting to figure out new songs before re-immersing himself in the Alexis headspace before their bittersweet victory lap. In Nashville and Toronto, he put together The Hurry and the Harm and had a “wonderful experience.” After completing the Alexis tour, he was suddenly in a far more positive place than he had been in a long time. “For the first time in eight or nine years, I didn’t have anything to do,” he said. “I had the record done ... and I finished and closed the book on the Alexis chapter. The first couple weeks of January are the first two weeks I’ve ever relaxed, like literally relaxed, in eight or nine years. And it was a really big moment. It was like a proverbial weight off my shoulders.”

Queens of the Stone Age. Homme is where the heart is on new album

Queens of the Stone Age is releasing their first album in six years. Chris Pizzello/the associated press

When Josh Homme sat down to write the music that would become Queens of the Stone Age’s longawaited new album, he found he had nothing to say. Worse, he was vaguely embarrassed by everything he’d done before. The mind has its dark places and Homme found himself stuck in some if its blacker recesses after dying briefly on the operating table during leg surgery in 2010. “One of the things it did for me was it made music seem almost stupid to me, silly,” Homme said. “For a guy who’s always worshipped music — that’s been my religion — to all of a sudden feel foolish about playing music and to feel it was overblown, dramatic, self-absorbed — that (it) meant nothing all of a sudden — was strange.” It began with Homme sitting in a room trying to love music again. His wife finally got him rolling, convincing him to hit record and make the demos that would eventually become Like Clockwork, the first new album for the Grammy-winning Los Angeles-based band

Dark stuff

It took five months of intense frustration and worry • Not an easy road. Along the way Homme lost his drummer, was bailed out by his best bud Dave Grohl, assisted by an all-star cast that included Queens fan Sir Elton John, and became even closer with the guys who made it through the heart of darkness with him.

since 2007. It’s not really like any Queens of the Stone Age album you’ve heard before. It’s dark — OK, darker — and brooding. There are slow, contemplative songs and the mood is far more vulnerable than on any of the band’s previous five albums. “And I hated it because I thought, ‘Who’s going to want to listen to this?’” Homme said. “And my wife Brody says, ‘Who cares?’ And I stopped and went, ‘Oh, that’s right. Who cares?’” the associated press

Thom Yorke finds fresh outlook in L.A.

Atoms For Peace. Radiohead frontman says that West Coast living is helping to feed back into the brooding Brit band he’s famous for

Southern California has been good for Thom Yorke. It’s the home base for his four-year-old band Atoms For Peace, meaning he’s making occasional tough cross-continent commuter flights from the United Kingdom but also hiking up to Griffith Observatory and surfing with Atoms bassist Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The very English Radiohead frontman said Los Angeles is steadily working its magic on him. “I find it hard to work in Britain all the time,” Yorke said. “Because I’ve grown up with it and it’s what I know. And I’ve also grown up with the cynicism that’s in the genes. Sometimes it’s good to try and wash that out. Generally in my work, it’s really helped me a lot. And it’s fed back into the Radiohead thing too. Maybe it’s just getting old, but I’m loosening up with all my ... stupid rules about what works, what doesn’t work.” The 44-year-old first assembled Flea, Radiohead producer and multi-instrumentalist Nigel Godrich, Brazilian percussionist Mauro Refosco and drummer Joey Waronker to perform songs from his 2006 solo album The Eraser.

“Maybe it’s just getting old but I’m loosening up with all my ... stupid rules about what works.” Thom Yorke Talking about working in California

A series of loose recorded L.A. jam sessions followed, which Yorke and Godrich rearranged and remixed for nearly two years. The resulting album, Amok, was released in February and blends Yorke’s

distinctive tenor vocals with complex layers of rhythm. A week after getting back together to rehearse for an upcoming tour, Yorke and Flea sat together at a picnic table last week outside their rehearsal space. They’re less of an odd couple in person than you’d expect, finishing each other’s thoughts and reminiscing about their first meeting at a festival some 15 years ago. “You gave me a lift to the stage, that’s right,” Yorke told his bandmate, laughing. For everyone involved, who made their names performing with other groups,

Atoms For Peace “feels like a musical vacation, like going on a field trip,” Flea said, smiling between sips of tea. The band’s 27-date tour begins in July in Europe and will reach the U.S. in September before ending in Japan. It follows a more limited 2010 tour, all much more than was originally planned for the group. “It was quite fun anyway because it was no biggie,” he said. “We had one gig planned at the end of it. If it wasn’t going to work out, then fine. But I was just amazed at how sort of slinky the grooves got.” The Associated Press

Ethan Hawke gushes over Cage’s acting abilities Ethan Hawke admits he’s more than a little “obsessed” with fellow actor Nicolas Cage. “He’s the only actor since Marlon Brando that’s actually done anything new with the art of acting,” he said during a Q&A session on Reddit. “He’s successfully taken us away from an obsession with naturalism into a kind of presentation style of acting that I imagine was popular with the old troubadours. If I could erase his bottom half bad movies and only keep his top half movies, he would blow everyone out of the water.” No word, though, on whether Hawke is going to let Cage influence his own acting style.

Planning a wedding is no piece of cake, although you do get one in the end. But the road to the big day can be bumpy, especially when it comes to choosing wine to be served for that all important toast to the bride. It’s essential to is to worry less about what you prefer and more about what the majority of your guests will enjoy. Then there’s the cost. Here is where size matters. There’s a savings component when you trade up, so bigger is always better. The selection of 1.5 litre bottles varies wildly across the country. So does their flavour profiles, with many “Canadian” versions made from a blend of imported and domestic juice. Chile offers some of the best value when it comes to larger bottles, with Concha y Toro’s 2011 Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot (1,500 ml, $13.95 to $19.99) offering bright, red berry fruit and Frontera Sauvignon Blanc (1,500 ml, $13.95 to $19.99) showing off gooseberry and citrus expression.

MOCA: The Athlete Series

The Caribbean comes to Calgary

Suncor Energy Stage One Festival

On Friday starting at 7 p.m., the opening of the Olympian Heights Athlete Series is on at Museum of Contemporary Art. The exhibit features 10 portraits of Canadian athletes by 10 Alberta artists. The auction starts at 8 p.m. and the pieces feature athletes such as Simon Whitfield, Alexandre Bilodeau and Rick Hansen, with artists including Lisa Brawn, Chris Cran and Erik Olson. The gallery is open to the public from now until July 1.

The annual festival showcasing the arts and culture of the Caribbean is being held on Saturday at Shaw Millennium Park. The fest kicks off with a masquerade “mas” parade at 11 a.m. from Eau Claire, along 3rd Street SW and Stephen Avenue. There will be music, arts and crafts and Caribbean food. The festival runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and admission is free. The after party is happening at Our Lady of Fatima Hall (4747 30 St. SE) and tickets are $30.

With the help of Suncor, Lunchbox Theatre hosts the Suncor Energy Stage One Festival on Friday and Saturday. This annual event showcases new scripts in the format of a public reading. All featured play submissions run for roughly one hour and are not limited to any genre, but you can be assured there is nothing too experimental or R-rated about any of the material. The twist? The audience is encouraged to give their feedback on the play during the hour. For tickets visit lunchboxtheatre.com

Woods’ $78M last year ranks first

Tiger Woods is back on top of Forbes’ list of highestpaid athletes. The star golfer spent 11 straight years at No. 1 on the magazine’s list before falling to third in 2012. The magazine estimates he made $78.1 million over the last year. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NBA

With 3-1 series lead against L.A., Chicago is one win away from returning to Stanley Cup final Marian Hossa scored the tiebreaking goal early in the third period, and the Chicago Blackhawks moved to the brink of the Stanley Cup final with a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night in Game 4 of the Western Confer-

ence final. Patrick Kane tapped home the tying goal as Chicago rallied from a second-period deficit to snap the defending Stanley Cup champions’ 15-game home-winning streak dating all

the way back to March. Bryan Bickell had a goal and an assist for the top-seeded Blackhawks, who took a 3-1 lead in the bestof-seven series. Slava Voynov and Dustin Penner scored for the Kings, who had won their first eight playoff games at Staples Center. The champs are in trouble after Jonathan Quick failed to match Corey Crawford, who made 19 saves. Game 5 is Saturday night in Chicago. The Blackhawks won without top defenceman Duncan Keith, who served a one-game

suspension for high-sticking Jeff Carter in the face during the second period of Game 3. Keith easily is the Hawks’ icetime leader and top-scoring defenceman, but Sheldon Brookbank filled in while Chicago played strong team defence in front of Crawford, who has matched the Conn Smythe Trophy winner in the other net. “You miss a defenceman like Duncan Keith, he is the guy who plays the most on the blue-line,” Hossa said. “When you miss him, someone else has to step up, and our guys did.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Tigers’ right-hander Scherzer a sure thing so far in 2013 Max Scherzer struck out nine in seven innings to remain unbeaten, and Victor Martinez homered and drove in three runs to lift the Detroit Tigers to a 5-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday. Scherzer (8-0) allowed a run and four hits, walking two. He is the first Detroit pitcher to start the season 8-0 since Jeremy Bonderman in 2007. Joaquin Benoit allowed a run in the eighth, and Jose Valverde pitched a perfect ninth for his seventh save in nine chances. The associated Press

French Open. Serena, Maria set up 1-2 final Done with a dominating performance in the French Open semifinals, Serena Williams climbed the stairs leading from the locker-room to the players’ lounge, looking to give her mother a hug. Smiling widely all the while, Williams greeted visitors, posed for photos and signed autographs on her way. It’s been more than a decade since she was so happy — and played so well — this deep in the tournament at Roland Garros. Coming as close to perfect as seems possible, Williams absolutely overwhelmed last year’s runner-up, fifth-seeded Sara Errani of Italy, 6-0, 6-1 in a mere 46 minutes Thursday to reach the final for the first time since winning her lone French Open championship in 2002. “It doesn’t seem like that long ago,” Williams said, “even though it was.” To collect her 16th Grand Slam title Saturday, Williams will need to beat defending champion Maria Sharapova, who put aside 11 doublefaults and got past third-seeded Victoria Azarenka 6-1, 2-6, 6-4 in a much more competitive semifinal.

Williams has won a careerbest 30 consecutive matches, the longest single-season streak on tour since 2000. Sharapova has won 13 consecutive matches in Paris.

‘I should’ve died on the football field’ CFL. After suffering devastating spinal injuries in high school, love of football brings Breaux to Hamilton

Some have mistaken it for a tattoo. Others have actually asked to touch it. The scar stretching from the base of Delvin Breaux’s skull down his neck to roughly his shoulder blades is a constant reminder of how fortunate the Hamilton Tiger-Cats rookie defensive back is to be alive. “I thank God and am so blessed,” Breaux said this week at the CFL team’s training camp at McMaster University. “I appreciate football much more because a lot of people wouldn’t take a chance on me. “I’m just so glad to have the opportunity to play again.” The 23-year-old cheated death Oct. 27, 2006, just two days after celebrating his 17th birthday. Having already committed to LSU, one of the top programs in U.S. college football, Breaux was covering a kickoff during a high school

Delvin Breaux began the 2013 Arena Football League season with the New Orleans VooDoo before signing with Hamilton as a free agent.

His recovery took nearly six years and while Breaux attended LSU on an athletic scholarship, he never got medical clearance to play football there. After university, Breaux worked construction and as a bouncer. He played flag football before catching on with the semi-pro Louisiana Bayou Vipers. Now, all these years later, Breaux’s dream is to get his hands on the Grey Cup. “Many people would’ve quit, it wouldn’t have been in their heart anymore to keep playing. But I’m a different breed, I want to keep playing.”

46 Horoscopes

Aries

Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 Don’t let your responsibilities weigh you down. It does not matter how much work you have to do or how far behind you are in your schedule, you must remain cheerful.

Scorpio

Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 Others may give in to despair today but no way are you going to let it affect you. In fact, the more those around you indulge in feelings of doom and gloom, the more you will laugh at them.

Taurus

April 21 - May 21 Today’s events will encourage you to believe that all things are possible. But they could also tempt you to take foolish risks, so think before you act. If you make a mistake, fix it.

Sagittarius

Gemini

Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 Don’t feel guilty about what happens to others. You are not responsible for the world and its woes and those who say you are should be laughed at loud and long.

May 22 - June 21 Keep things simple today. Also, tread carefully when dealing with employers and other important people. They may see you as a threat and try to clip your wings.

Capricorn

Cancer

Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 Neptune’s apparent change of direction in the travel area of your chart will leave you a bit confused about what you should be doing and where you should be going. The good news is there’s no need to rush.

June 22 - July 23 The planets warn you should watch what you say today, especially if you are one of those Cancerians who tend to speak before fully engaging your brain. You are entitled to your opinion but others are just as entitled to disagree.

Aquarius

Jan. 21 - Feb. 19 You may think you know what is going on but the planets warn you are missing an important piece of the puzzle and it could cost you money. Whatever else you do today, don’t take chances.

Leo

July 24 - Aug. 23 You will act on impulse quite a bit over the next 24 hours. Just be careful you don’t say anything that could have a negative financial impact.
