A Grand Forks woman who was lost at sea off the coast of Honduras for four days says it’s a “miracle” she and eight friends survived living off rainwater and a seabird. Tasha Brown, 20, and her group set out on an island expedition for fun on Saturday, but on the way, their ninemetre boat ran out of gas. After several unsuccessful attempts to flag down other boats, they decided to take a break for the night and passed out. “In the morning we wake up and the drift had taken us
out and it’s open water everywhere we are,” Brown told Metro. “So people started talking like, ‘Man, this could get serious. We don’t got water. We don’t got food. We don’t got gas.’” The group determined its position by watching the movement of the sun and started to paddle for land. Brown — whose mother describes her as “tenacious” — also took turns getting out of the boat and towing it while swimming, despite the fact they were in shark-infested waters. “I tell you, the days were the longest days of our lives,” she said. “But I’d rather die being eaten by a shark than die lying down.” A storm eventually provided them with fresh water, and one of the men on board also
caught a seabird flying mid-air and roasted it on the sizzling hood of the boat. Brown said it tasted like “turkey jerky.” By Wednesday morning a U.S. Coast Guard plane had spotted the sunburned bunch, and a rescue helicopter soon followed. Coast-guard spokesman Gabe Somma said they were found about 88 kilometres northwest of Utila, Honduras. “We all just screamed,” Brown recalled of that moment. “Almost all of us were crying, like, ‘Yes! We’re going to be OK.’ It was amazing.” Brown is a medic and was in Honduras for a rescue diving course. She missed her flight home because of the ordeal, but she’s expected to return to B.C. within the next few days. KATE WEBB/METRO WITH FILES FROM THE CANADIAN PRESS

Shifting responsibility to men KATE WEBB
Two years ago a pair of uniformed police officers were patrolling the Granville Strip when they spotted a man in his 20s herding an incredibly drunk young woman toward a cab. It was the first summer of the Vancouver Police Department’s “Don’t Be That Guy” campaign — a comprehensive effort to deter and prevent predatory men from committing sexual assault. “They questioned him and he said he knew who she was and he was going to take her home,” said Sgt. Richard Rabinovitch, head of the VPD’s sex-crimes unit, after announcing on Thursday that the campaign is be-
ing relaunched in bars across Vancouver this summer. “They didn’t trust that that was the right answer. They asked her and she did not know who he was.” Needless to say, it was not the stranger who took her home that night. Vancouver police are now training bar staff to recognize the warning signs of deviant behaviour so that they can step in and help vulnerable women before they become victims, and also serve as expert witnesses in criminal prosecutions. They are also plastering men’s washrooms in bars and clubs with posters sending the clear message that sex without consent is sexual assault. Their actions were inspired by a campaign by the same name launched in Edmonton in 2010 that has since been gaining notoriety worldwide. Dalya Israel, manager of victims’ services and outreach programs with the Women Against Violence Against Women Rape Crisis
Don’t Be That Guy campaign posters adorn the walls of the men’s washroom at The Roxy nightclub in downtown Vancouver on Thursday. KATE WEBB/METRO
Centre, said it is a refreshing approach. “We’re incredibly encouraged that these messages are to the perpetrators, as opposed to teaching women
how to be safer and to be more vigilant about their safety,” she said. “We’ve done that for a really long time, and it’s time to shift the responsibility to asking people
to not commit these crimes.” Rabinovitch said the VPD noticed a drop in sexual assaults after their first campaign in 2011, but could not provide specifics.

From Crown Vic to grandpa’s Charger Sure, Vancouver wants to be the greenest city, but sometimes a Prius isn’t going to cut it. The Vancouver police will soon be rolling up in special law-enforcement models of Chrysler’s Dodge Charger, if council approves the $5.9-million bill next week. Officers have traditionally driven the Crown Victoria, but the VPD had to shop for a new model to replace its aging fleet of 176 patrol cars after Ford discontinued the Crown Vic.
But just because officers will be driving the car from the Dukes of Hazzard doesn’t mean they’re “hot, high-performance” cars, said Rob Rothwell, the VPD’s manager of fleet operations. “This is your grandfather’s Charger, this is not your high-octane teenager Charger,” Rothwell said, adding that its V6 gasoline engine doesn’t have as much muscle as the Crown Vic’s V8 engine. They still have exceptional braking and acceleration.
Plus, the new fleet of slightly smaller vehicles will help support the city’s green goals by reducing emissions by about 660 tonnes per year (32 per cent). The Chargers are also about $4,400 cheaper to maintain annually when it comes to maintenance, fuel and insurance. Hybrids were out of the question for the patrol fleet (though investigators drive the more efficient cars) because they simply couldn’t handle emergency situations or fit
enough gear, Rothwell said. “The vehicles still need to carry an enormous amount of gear and equipment to support officers for a shift,” he said, including ballistic shields, fire extinguishers, first-aid kits and gun racks. “These vehicles are pretty much on the road 24/7.” And while some officers might lament the loss of space compared to the Crown Vic, Rothwell hasn’t heard much grumbling about the switch to smaller engines. “The reality is, this is city

Metro drops in on Day 5 of the B.C. Bike Race, a mountain-biking endurance contest that attracts thousands of riders each year from around the world. The day saw riders take on 35.9 kilometres of single-track trails between Sechelt and Langdale. story by Matt Kieltyka/photographs by jennifer gauthier/metro
No mountain too high
Solo masters men’s leader Derick Berry climbs Highway 103. A field of 550 riders is competing in this year’s B.C. Bike Race.

Riding the dream: Mud and blood at the B.C. Bike Race
And they’re off... Hundreds of riders leave base camp at Sechelt on Thursday to take on 39.5 kilometres of terrain.
On an upward cycle Wendy Simms climbs the Highway 103 singletrack course. The Nanaimo rider has been the top-ranked woman throughout the race.
Felipe Guelfi has fifth place in his sights. Wheel to wheel, the Uruguayan — like most of the competitors in his pack — disregards marshal pleas to slow down before a sudden drop off the side of the highway into the final stretch of a gruelling 39.5-kilometre, Sechelt-toLangdale mountain-bike race. Guelfi takes the dip at full speed, bottoms out on a jump back onto the pavement and skids to a stop by a concrete divider as medics race to his aid. Momentarily prone and dazed, he’s helped to his feet and makes a futile attempt to brush the dirt from his body. Teammate Alexis Cuello, who has already crossed the line 200 metres ahead, runs back to collect his compatriot. The two, Guelfi back on his bike and Cuello on foot, finish this stage of the race to a burst of applause by other riders, spectators and volunteers. Guelfi’s helmet is shattered, blood drips down one leg and mud cakes his body. His bruises will heal and the pain will subside, but there’s no cure for the smile perma-
nently plastered on his face. Five days down, two to go and his team still has a shot at fifth place in their category in the seventh running of the B.C. Bike Race. And there’s nowhere else Guelfi, on his first visit to British Columbia, would rather be. “We needed that position, so I had to go for it,” he says, laughing, after the spill. “The dip caught me by surprise. But nothing hurts so far.” The race has been tough for someone not used to B.C. terrain, but it’s just that terrain — and the intricate network of single-track mountain-bike trails here — that makes it such a draw. “The work that the guys have put into the single track is just amazing,” Guelfi says. “In Uruguay it’s a lot flatter, and we hardly have any tracks. It’s a different world here. It’s so nicely built that it feels like the Disneyland of biking.” Martin Koran of Bakerville, Calif., has done the race before and found the backdrop — through Vancouver Island, the Sunshine Coast and North Shore up to Whistler — so en-
thralling that he brought his wife, Laurie, and two young children, Karel, 5, and Caecilia, 7, with him this year. While Koran toughs it out on the trails, his family has been taking in the nature, bathing on beaches and hunting for starfish. “It’s nice to be riding in a place that’s so remote and exotic for us,” he says. “We don’t have temperate rainforest where I live. You’re just surrounded by lush greens and ferns, which is a dream come true. Trees everywhere, and the mountains come right

Martin Koran gets a kiss from his wife, Laurie, before heading out on Stage 5 of the race. out of the ocean. It’s wonderful. And you’re doing it with 550 other crazy fools.” Those fools cross the finish line on July 6, proudly checking another item off their bucket lists right here in our backyard.

KISS loves Canada, and judging by the fans lined up for autographs in Vancouver on Thursday, the feeling is mutual. Little Mountain, big bucks
B.C. finalizes sale for about $300M The deal for Little Mountain is done. The province announced Thursday the sale of the 15-acre Vancouver property with enviable views to local developer Holborn for about $300 million in cash and non-market housing — six years after it asked low-income residents to move from the land. Though it’s unclear how much the province will get in cash versus affordable housing, Holborn (behind the Trump Tower) plans to build 234 social housing units along with market units on the site bounded by 33rd to 37th Avenues between Main and Ontario Streets.

More than 200 people, some as young as seven years old, waited outside Tom Lee Music on Granville Street for a chance to see their rock ’n’ roll idols as the band kicks off its Monster Canadian tour this summer. Lifelong fan Garrett Grant, 34, waited all night with nearly 50 others dressed in KISS T-shirts and a whole lot of leather. Displaying his autographed poster 21 hours later, Grant said it was “worth every minute.” Band members addressed
media at a news conference, joking about their age and their affinity for Canada. They presented a cheque for $10,000 to Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts for Sophie’s Place, a centre for abused children fronted by Gene Simmons’ daughter Sophie Tweed Simmons. The band plays at the Rogers Arena on Saturday. A KISS pop-up store, where you can buy everything from KISS BBQ covers to pajamas to eightinch-heeled boots, will be open at Tom Lee Music until Sunday.
Delta. Woman killed, daughter injured, after horses spooked A woman has been killed in a horseback-riding accident in Delta. Delta Police Sgt. Ciaran Feenan says the 43-year-old woman was critically injured when she was thrown by her horse at around 8:40 p.m. Wednesday night. He says the woman and her 18-year-old daughter were riding through the rural Ladner neighbourhood south of Vancouver when the victim was thrown as her horse galloped away after being spooked by a dog. The teen’s horse then fol-
lowed the first animal but was unable to jump a muddy ditch and both the teen and the second horse tumbled into the muck. As rescuers rushed to perform CPR on the injured woman, others helped the teen out of the ditch and firefighters pulled her horse to safety. Feenan says both mother and daughter were taken to hospital where the mother was pronounced dead and the girl was treated for scrapes to her face and bruising to her leg. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Tories planned to reimburse Duffy: Court documents Senate scandal. Harper’s then-chief of staff stepped up after cost estimate tripled
The Conservative party was going to cover the living expenses Sen. Mike Duffy had to pay back, but halted the plan when it was discovered he owed nearly three times as much as originally thought. That was what lawyers for Nigel Wright, former chief of staff to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, told the RCMP last month when they met police to discuss the investigation into his $90,000 gift to the troubled senator, according to documents released by the Ottawa courthouse Thursday. They also told the Mounties
Sen. Mike Duffy The Canadian Press File
that Wright was not the only person in the Prime Minister’s Office who was aware of the arrangement, but noted Harper was not in the loop. RCMP Cpl. Greg Horton filed
a document June 24 laying out his grounds for believing that records kept by the Senate would serve as evidence in a criminal investigation. The document states the lawyers for Wright advised the investigators on June 19 that as chief of staff, Wright had the role of managing the Conservative party, “part of which was to deal with matters that could cause embarrassment.” After it was revealed that the cost would be $90,000, not $32,000, “Wright then offered to cover the cost for Duffy, believing it was the proper ethical decision that taxpayers not be out that amount of money.” The payment also came with two conditions: “Pay the money back right away (and) stop talking to the media about it,” stated the document.

Egypt. Authorities raid, shut down media outlets thought to be pro-Morsi
Detour Routing (June 29 – Sept 3) Fridays after 9 p.m. All day Saturdays/Sundays/holidays
Egyptian authorities shut down four Islamist TV stations, banned the Muslim Brotherhood’s newspaper and raided the office of Al-Jazeera’s Egypt affiliate in a crackdown on media considered sympathetic to ousted President Mohammed Morsi, bringing an outcry Thursday from rights groups. Among the shuttered stations was the Misr25 channel, run by the Brotherhood. It went off the air Wednesday night just as it was airing proMorsi protesters chanting, “Down with military rule.” In a statement, the Brother-
hood said the shutdowns were a return to the “repressive” policies of Egypt’s “dark ... ages.” Amnesty International called the shutdowns a “blow to freedom of expression.” A security official said the stations were shut down over suspicions of incitement, speaking on condition of anonymity. Notably, no Egyptian stations are currently airing live footage from the main proMorsi rally in Cairo, where thousands have been holding a sit-in since Friday. The Associated Press

Instead, he reiterated his past claims that it is a conspiracy by Western and some Arab states. The Associated Press U.K.

Glassing around in London Town Wearable computers. A Metro reporter tries Google’s high-tech specs — and feels like a Borg Scott taylor
Metro in London, Ont.
It’s pretty cool. That’s about as tech savvy as I get, but it’s also an apt description of the new Google Glass. Most people have at least seen pictures of it by now. You wear the device like glasses, but use it like a smartphone. There are no lenses, but there is a small screen above your right eye from which emanates the world — as both you, and Google, would like to see it. Basically anything that can be done on a smartphone can be done with Google Glass. You can surf the web, make calls, send emails and texts, shoot photos and take video. Voices.com CEO David Ciccarelli is one of a handful of people in Canada known as Glass Explorers, who earned the right to be Google guinea pigs by winning a draw — and paying $1,500 for the product. He tried to get in on the ground floor as one of the tech-

nology’s first developers, but that didn’t work out. Luckily, Google then gave the general public the opportunity to test drive the first prototypes, and he jumped at it. The device is expected to hit a wider market next year. “There was a contest on Twitter called ‘If I had Glass’ and so I figured here’s my second chance,” Ciccarelli said. “I didn’t hear anything for about two months, and then I got a reply on Twitter that said I was one of the guys to try it. I was told I had to buy it, and then go to New York City to pick it up.” He’s now showing the gizmo off to others, including
Don’t be a ‘glasshole’
• Yep, that phrase has already been coined for Google Glass users who don’t follow unofficial etiquette rules for the specs. That includes recording videos and snapping pics on the sly.
• This week, Google put out a set of FAQs aimed at clearing up confusion about the product. Topics include facial recognition and how non-Glass users can tell if a picture or video is being taken.
yours truly from Metro London. So what’s right and what’s wrong with Google Glass? At first blush, it’s hard not to be impressed. The device doesn’t feel intrusive because the frame is lightweight titanium and, as mentioned, there are no lenses to smudge. There’s also no earpiece because sound is transmitted via bone conduction. You look up to see the screen, which can be controlled, for the most part, with voice commands. Initially, it looks to be about the size of a postage stamp, but it seems to grow and become easier to see with each passing second. I watched video Ciccarelli shot at a zoo, hands-free of course, and easily found people on his contact list. Looking at a photo of myself wearing Glass, though, I was reminded of the Borg from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Yes, people will walk into trees and some will video people and things they shouldn’t, but for a first stab at a wearable computer, it’s pretty cool.
BoE explains reasoning behind interest rate policy Mark Carney is already causing ripples in Britain in his first Mark Carney week as Getty images governor of the Bank of England, even though his methods would be considered old hat in Canada. Eschewing past practice, the British central bank went beyond simply announcing no changes to the 0.5 per cent key interest rate Thursday as it also published a statement explaining the reasoning and suggesting rates would remain depressed for some time. The dovish statement had the effect of boosting equity prices in England and dropping the pound one cent to $1.51 US. Under the previous governor, Mervyn King, the bank’s Monetary Policy Committee would typically issue no comment when policy was left unchanged. But instead the central bank gave some indication where matters are heading. The Canadian Press

From embarrassing to hilarious In 1974, Irby was embarrassed to discover that he had mistakenly worn the same shirt and vest as he did the year before. However, his wife dared him to repeat. Then Irby thought five would be funny. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE
Summer’s more sweltering days lurk around the corner, so why not prep for a little mobile gaming in air conditioned spaces? Here are three gems from June.
In the 186 days that have passed since the Reel Guys drank too much champagne on New Year’s Eve, Iron Man 3 has made more money than the GNP of some small countries, Fast & Furious 6 was faster and more furious than the previous five Vin Diesel car crazy movies and The Hangover Part III left us with a headache. At the midway mark of the year the Reel Guys look back at the best of the first six months of 2013.

Backed by Angry Birds publisher Rovio’s imprimatur, Icebreaker bravely enters the crowded physics puzzler field. While it’s easy to tell the game is built on the shoulders of early classics like Cut The Rope, it quickly blooms into a wickedly funny world of varied levels with biting winds, dark magic and troll snot among their hazards. (iOS and Android/$0.99)
It’s astonishing how unnerving the atmosphere in this horror game is, given the deliberately primitive graphics. Paired with a decent set of headphones, Home’s series of disturbing discoveries should keep you gripped from the first second. A caveat if you’re still angry about The Sopranos finale: The story design is inten-
tionally vague and the ending provides more questions than answers. (iOS/$2.99)
“After five pictures ... it was like, ‘Why stop?’” Dale Irby told the Dallas Morning News
Hanging up sweater vest for good Then five turned into 40. Even as he got older, the sweater and shirt combo still fit. “Uh, yeah, if I suck it in a little,” he said. Irby says the sweater vest and shirt will also retire — to the back of his closet. DALE IRBY/THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

RE: Unpaid Internships? $8 An Hour? The Beer Commercials Lied To Me! Published July 4 I’m sure this was an attempt at humour, but I imagine readers from 18 to 80 would find this story offending. Slacked at his jobs, thought customers were idiots, and is now happy in a job where he is hated. What’s the point. What does this say about Metro readers? Are they idiots too? Bob Peters, Winnipeg
Things surely changed in 10 years! From what I see, most kids are spoiled and depend heavily on their parents. They complain that school is too hard and can’t handle working part-time while in school. Yet, they seem to have plenty of time to drink and socialize with their $500 phones. Most of these kids can’t even maintain a conversation without taking a peek at their phone. All this to say that it would be super easy to be a young graduate these days since it wouldn’t take much to outclass the competition! Skippy76 posted to metronews.ca
awkward teenager love — but a pretty good one and well performed. What about you? Mark: Two blockbuster movies impressed me: Iron Man 3 and Star Trek: Into Darkness. But my two favourite movies of the year were Side Effects and Trance. Both were Hitchcockian thrillers that started out as one thing but cleverly morphed into something else. But I’ve always enjoyed mind games, Richard, as any of my detractors will tell you. RC: I liked both Side Effects and Trance, but as far as thrillers go my pick of the litter would be The Bay, an eco-apocalypse horror movie from Diner director Barry Levinson. He assembles an eye-catching array of fictional
news footage, phone camera images, surveillance videotape, Skype and “homemade” videos to tell the story and it will make you think twice before ever drinking tap water again! MB: The Bay was interesting, although unfortunate product placement for the store. I liked The Great Gatsby a lot, although I knew the story all too well. The Place Beyond The Pines is an ambitious sprawling movie that has three connecting stories. The whole is less than the sum of its parts but most of it is worth its loooooong running time. RC: My two favourite films so far this year have been Frances Ha and Before Mid-
night. Frances Ha stars the transcendent Greta Gerwig as a 20-something dancer trying to make it in New York City. Warm and charming, it captures the vagaries of a mostly rudderless life. Another movie I hope to watch over and over is Before Midnight, the third film in the Ethan Hawke-Julie Delpy relationship trilogy. Done with humour, heart and pathos, often in the same scene, it is a poignant farewell to two characters who grew up in front of us. MB: I liked Frances Ha and I think it’s the breakthrough role Gerwig has been looking for. But it was very similar to last year’s Lola Versus, which I found funnier though not as artful.

The best of 2013 so far Richard: Mark, it’s been a weird year. Things that I was really looking forward to, like Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman in Identity Thief, fell really flat, but other things like the off-the-radar The Purge turned out to be really good fun. From the early part of the year I’d choose Warm Bodies, a zom com that is essentially one joke — the zombie as a metaphor for

Warm Bodies is a zombie metaphor for awkward teen love — and a pretty well performed one at that. HANDOUT

All terrorists aren’t created equal. Some, like the self-styled Surrey-based jihadists Mujahid and Pirate NinjaCat, a.k.a. John Nuttall and his sidekick Amanda Korody, don’t have the jam to clean the cat litter box. According to one erstwhile acquaintance, the couple, who were arrested for trying to plant Canada Day improvised explosive devices at the B.C. legislature, were even thrown out of a local mosque — for worshipping weirdly. They lived in complete squalor and appear to spend their spare time paint-balling the TV into submission. You think that was weird? How about this? Two generations of really bad tunes came together over the weekend when Chad Kroeger, the main perp of Nickelback, and few-hit wonder Avril Lavigne got married in secret in Mandelieu in the south of France.

Terence Stamp is a dour, impatient man facing the imminent death of his wife (Redgrave) when he realizes he didn’t bring her much happiness. He’s overwhelmed by guilt and he turns his self-hatred on his son. He tries to stave off loneliness by joining the seniors’ singing group she had belonged to. Singing helps him release emotion he can’t express otherwise and he starts to come to life again. This is the sweetly sentimental film the English do so well.
Possessing a terribly incongruous mix of tones, I’m So Excited feels like a rare misstep for feted Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar. A malfunction puts a passenger plane in jeopardy as it prepares for an emergency landing. Inside a trio of campy male flight attendants do their best to put all at ease, often through drink and drugs. At first the bawdy one-liners are a refreshing change from Hollywood’s recent parade of awkward, mean-spirited comedy. But the jokes and the sexual innuendo soon grow thin.

When the rivers run blood red Byzantium. Filmmaker Neil Jordan found out you don’t need special effects to turn an Irish waterfall to blood Ned Ehrbar
Metro World News in Hollywood
Neil Jordan has a simple answer for the question of how much blood is enough for a good vampire movie: “Oh God, as much as possible. I mean, we turned a waterfall red, didn’t we?” The Irish director is not using hyperbole, either. During a climactic moment in his latest film, Byzantium, a waterfall on an idyllic Irish island runs red with blood — and not via CGI. “There’s a vegetable dye
you can buy that turns things red. We had climbers climb up and basically unload these bags of vegetable dye...” “It was the most spectacular thing I’ve ever seen in my life.” The waterfall caps off a very bloody tale indeed, but then when you’re following two immortal women (Saoirse Ronan and Gemma Arterton) that feed on the stuff, things tend to get messy.
Though the characters in Byzantium never use the Vword, Jordan admits it’s easier to refer to it as a vampire movie. Plus, he’s something of an expert on the topic, having also directed 1994’s Interview with the Vampire. “The truth is a lot of vampire movies are really bad, you know? It’s very hard to make a vampire film scary,” he says.

I’ll be there for you: Perry pays it forward by opening home to addicts Matthew Perry knows what it’s like to hit rock bottom. He famously struggled with alcoholism and drug addiction during his Friends heyday. “Eventually things got so bad that I couldn’t hide it, and then everybody knew,” he told People. Perry sought help, went
to rehab, and got his addictions under control. He’s recently decided to help others complete the same journey — he’s turning his Malibu beach house into a men’s sober living facility called Perry House. ”It’s nice for people to see that somebody who once struggled in their life is not struggling

anymore,” he said. This is an incredibly generous and thoughtful gesture by the actor. Hopefully the neigh-
bours will agree. Something tells me that Malibu beach dwellers aren’t used to living next to rehab facilities.
Mile-high heartbreaker: Sleeping star still gets stares MELINDA TAUB

Call it “the curse of the adorbs.” Eddie Redmayne, star of such films as Les Miserables and My Week with Marilyn, is a singing ginger with a cute British accent and a perpetually goofy,
lovelorn expression. Of course women flock to him even when he’s out cold. Eddie was on a plane recently and attracted quite the following. “I fell asleep, and when I woke up the man next to me asked, ‘Excuse me, are you someone important?’ I must have looked confused. He explained: ‘I’m asking because the stewardesses came over and were watching you sleep,’” he told GQ. Don’t get a big head about it, Eddie. They’d probably do that for any member of the Les Miserables cast.
Uncle Jay and Auntie Bey: North West gets nothing but best from parents’ pals
North West is sure sitting pretty. Not only are her parents a Kardashian and a Kanye — neither exactly known for being restrained consumers — but she’s got family friends like Jay-Z and Beyoncé to spoil her too. The couple spent thousands on baby gifts for little North, a source close to the couple told the Sun. Gifts reportedly included personalized Christian Dior baby booties and an engraved sterling silver Elsa Peretti Padova baby set from Tiffany’s, according to the Sun. Apparently they brought their own daughter, Blue Ivy,
Beyoncé and Jay-Z
over to meet North, as Blue is “old enough now to be really interested in babies.” And, presumably, in plotting world domination with her fellow princess of pop.

Washington dreamin’ LIQUID ASSETS

California casts a shadow that makes it hard for anyone pressing grapes in other U.S. states to get noticed. So, though wine is made everywhere across the country, odds are you’ve only had Cali juice. While there may be more exotic vine-growing locales, one of the coolest is Washington state — especially its Columbia Valley. I’m talking Clint Eastwood cool, folks. The landscape east of the Cascade mountain range reminds me of the backdrop for one of his spaghetti westerns. How do they grow grapes in a desert? It’s all about water management and some innovative cultivation techniques that have secured Washington the number two spot in wine production behind The Golden State. Single varietal Washington reds typically have a robust, meatiness to their flavours and really show off the rustic personality of their terrior. That attractive forwardness is tempered in mega combinations of grapes, like 14 Hands Vineyards’ 2010 Hot To Trot Red Blend ($15.25 to $19.99) — a merlot-led fruit-bomb that will charm grilled meats and open your palate to alternative American wines.

Bombers return favour in Als’ home opener
Ex-Canuck Ballard lands on his feet in Minnesota The Minnesota Wild have agreed to terms on a two-year contract with defenceman Keith Ballard. The team announced the deal Thursday on Twitter and said paperwork would be filed Friday when the free-agent market opens. The 30-year-old Ballard was let go this week by Vancouver with a compliance buyout to clear space under the salary cap. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Lions devour Argos in home opener CFL. Injuries to two B.C. players dampen victory over champs CAM TUCKER
24 16 Lions
First, the good news: the B.C. Lions got their first victory of the 2013 Canadian Football League season. The bad news: the Lions could now be forced to deal with a pair of injuries to two key members of their team,
and it’s only the second week of the season. The Lions defeated the Toronto Argonauts, defending Grey Cup champions, by a score of 24-16 in front of 25,255 fans at BC Place Stadium on Thursday night.
There were long stretches between bursts of excitement. Lions receiver Nick Moore could soon be on his way to becoming a favourite target of quarterback Travis Lulay, with more than 100 yards receiving before the first half was even over. And he could become even more of a focal point in the offence. Shawn Gore, the Lions non-import receiver, suffered what was reported to be a concussion after taking a helmet-to-helmet hit while attempting to catch a
pass over the middle in the second quarter. Gore had to be helped off the field and did not return to the game. The injury bug struck the defence in the second half. Adam Bighill, one half of the Lions vaunted linebacker duo with Solomon Elimimian, injured his left leg in the third quarter. As Argos running back Chad Kackert was rumbling up the field on a 28-yard run — negated by a Toronto penalty — Bighill got tangled up with an opposing player and was writhing in pain after play had stopped.
Seguin wears out welcome in Beantown
Tyler Seguin is headed to Dallas after the Bruins traded him to the Stars as part of a seven-player deal on Thursday. GETTY IMAGES FILE
Tyler Seguin is headed to the Dallas Stars in a trade less than a week after Boston’s general manager criticized the former No. 2 overall pick as needing to be a “better pro.” Seguin was sent to the Stars on Thursday in a seven-player deal also highlighted by steady forward Loui Eriksson joining the Eastern Conference-champion Bruins. Dallas got forward Rich Peverley and defenceman Ryan Button, while the Bruins acquired forwards Matt Fraser and Reilly Smith, and defence-
man Joe Morrow. It was the first major move for new Stars general manager Jim Nill, who addressed the team’s need at centre with Seguin, the No. 2 pick in 2010, and Peverley. The trade will allow Dallas’ leading scorer, Jamie Benn, to move to his more natural spot at wing. “Tyler is a dynamic player that will be a part of our core group for a long time to come,” Nill said. “A player at his age, position and talent level are extremely difficult to acquire and we’re thrilled to bring him into
our organization.” Seguin won the Stanley Cup with the Bruins as a rookie and was their leading scorer and an all-star a year later. He dropped to a tie for third on the team in scoring during this past season. At the draft last weekend, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli essentially said that Seguin wasn’t focused enough on hockey, although he made it sound like the 21-year-old would be back by saying he was expecting “big things from him.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Winnipeg backup quarterback Justin Goltz ran in a pair of touchdowns Thursday as the Blue Bombers downed the Montreal Alouettes 19-11. Montreal had a late touchdown by S.J. Green and Sean Whyte’ field goal and punt single, but neither offence found much traction on a muggy night at Percival Molson Stadium. The Bombers, who also had two Mike Renaud singles and a Justin Palardy field goal, avenged their 3833 loss at home last week as the 1-1 teams split a backto-back series to start the season.

Lisicki building on Germany’s tennis legacy Wimbledon. No. 23 seed rallies past Radwanska; will face Bartoli in women’s final Spurred on by Steffi Graf and inspired by an array of other sporting greats, Sabine Lisicki pulled herself out of a big hole and climbed right into the Wimbledon final. The 23rd-seeded German, a Wimbledon semifinalist two years ago, overcame a 3-0 deficit in the third set to beat Agnieszka Radwanska 6-4, 2-6, 9-7 on Thursday and advance to her first Grand Slam final. On Saturday, she will face Marion Bartoli, a 6-1, 6-2 winner over Kirsten Flipkens in the other semifinal. “It’s another challenge, and I’m looking forward to it,” said Lisicki, who beat defending champion Serena Williams in the fourth round. The men’s semifinals are set for Friday, with top-seeded Novak Djokovic playing Juan Martin del Potro and 2012 finalist Andy Murray up against surprising 24th-seeded Jerzy Janowicz. Lisicki may have the advantage with a 3-1 record against

the Frenchwoman Bartoli, including a quarter-final win at Wimbledon in 2011 — their most recent match. Lisicki started off Thursday playing aggressive tennis on Centre Court, and it yielded immediate results. She won 22 of her 30 points on serve and broke Radwanska once. But soon after, Lisicki’s serve deserted her, and so did her lead. Lisicki lost all four of her service games in the second set, with the lowlight coming in the final game. Leading 30-0, she
lost four straight points, including two double-faults. “She made some really good points. I made a few errors too many,” said Lisicki, the first German to reach the Wimbledon final since Graf in 1999. “But I regained my focus and game in the third set, and that’s the main part.” Graf may have played a small role in the comeback. The seven-time Wimbledon champion sent Lisicki a text message before the match to wish her luck. “She told me to go for it, and I’m just so happy,” Lisicki said. “I was just fighting for every single point out there.” Besides Graf, Lisicki also named a few others who have helped inspire her to come back from a serious left ankle injury in 2010, including ski great Hermann Maier and NFL quarterback Drew Brees.

March 21 - April 20 You know better than to ignore your instincts but not everyone is as switched on as you and a friend or relative is going to make a major mistake today. Be there for them.
April 21 - May 21 Don’t worry if what you do today does not meet universal approval. If you aimed to please everyone, you would not get much done. And it would give them something else to moan about.
May 22 - June 21 Words can hurt as well as heal, so think before you speak today or you could severely bruise a loved one’s ego. Having said that, don’t go to the other extreme and say nothing at all.
June 22 - July 23 Your world looks pretty good at the moment but don’t let that lull you into a false sense of security. Someone you do business with may try to rip you off over the next 24 hours.
July 24 - Aug. 23 Some people you have been dealing with lately are clearly greedy, but that does not mean you have to sink to their level. Protect your interests but do so according to the rules.
Aug. 24 - Sept. 23 Unexpected events will throw you out of your stride today but in the greater scheme of things it’s no big deal, so stay calm and stick with the program. You know what your target is — keep moving.
Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 You will find it easy enough to explain your point of view today but that does not mean everyone will understand. The sad fact is not everyone shares your quickness of mind.
Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 Anything is possible if you believe in it enough. The danger today is that certain well-meaning people may try to persuade you to lower your sights a little. Aim ever higher.
Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 There are so many good things going on in your world, so many opportunities waiting to be exploited, that it would be a crime to just sit there and do nothing. What is it that would please you the most?
Dec. 22 - Jan. 20 Pluto in your sign places the focus on wealth, which means you need to take care when dealing with money matters. Don’t think about how much you might make, think about how much you might lose.
Jan. 21 - Feb. 19 Why is it that only you can see the answers? Why is it that everyone around you is blind to common sense? If you think like that then maybe the problem is really with you. People are different.
