Pigeon predator causes a stir

WEEKEND, DECEMBER 24-25, 2010

Crosswalks won’t be changing their tune

East end. Flooding

Little birdies will continue to guide visually impaired pedestrians through Toronto crosswalks, despite a movement to replace the chirpers in other Canadian cities. Hamilton and Halifax will soon join Montreal in updating accessible pedestrian signals in east-west crosswalks with four descending musical notes known as the “Canadian melody.” The north-south cuckoo sound will remain the same.

Hawk has been lurking around park for three years, official says A red-tailed hawk, showing no fear of people — or anything else for that matter — has set up a killing zone for pigeons in Moss Park. It lunches on them in broad daylight and in clear view of motorists and pedestrians at the corner of Sherbourne and Queen Street East. People wandering to and from Moss Park Arena snapped cellphone shots of the hawk devouring a pigeon in a tree on Wednesday. It carried the pigeon to the lowest branch, and within minutes all that was left of it were the feet and a few feathers — still visible on the branch a day later. But observers say the hawk’s diet is not limited to pigeons. Squirrels and rats have reason to fear for

Good riddance? Sympathy for the pigeons was in scarce supply among people outside the arena Thursday. One man, asked if he’d heard about the hawk’s hunting habits, said he hadn’t, but added: “Good for it.”

their lives, too. “It seems to like this corner,” said Graham Willcock, who operates Moss Park Arena. He tells a recent story of the hawk on the ground just outside the arena doors, clutching a rat with its talons, as children walked by. “The kids weren’t scared. They were fascinated,” he said.

Roberto Stopnicki, director of Toronto traffic management, said there have not been a “significant number of complaints” about the chirping sound, so the city has no plans to make the switch. The change in other cities stems from a 2008 report by the Transportation Association of Canada, which found that the chirping signal is “too readily mistaken” for the call of the northern cardinal.

No appeal in twin sex assault case

Romania. Jumper

Ontario Appeal Court agreed woman did not consent to have sex with boyfriend’s identical twin brother A sexual assault case in which the victim thought she was having sex with a man’s identical twin brother will not be heard by Canada's highest court. The Supreme Court of Canada has denied the man, who cannot be named, leave to appeal his conviction. After a party one night in September 2006 the woman, who had consumed most of a bottle of wine, went to sleep in the bed of a man with whom she had a consensual sexual relationship.

Appeals The man appealed his sex assault conviction, saying the trial judge was wrong in finding the mistaken identity meant the woman didn’t consent to sex. Appeal declined The Court of Appeal for Ontario upheld his conviction earlier this year and yesterday the Supreme Court of Canada declined to hear his appeal of that decision.

Later, she awoke to someone having sex with

her and assumed it was the man with whom she had a relationship. She called out the man’s name several times and when he said nothing throughout the act she turned on the light, only to discover it was the man’s twin brother. In the Ontario Appeal Court decision in June, the panel of judges wrote that the woman did not agree to sexual intercourse with anyone other than the man with whom she had a relationship.

Argument over immigrant funding stirs MP calls $53M cut ‘draconian’ $340M budget has increased from $111M since Tories inherited it: Minister SEAN KILPATRICK/THE CANADIAN PRESS

Immigrant settlement service funding cuts decried by the Liberals as “draconian” are necessary to ensure taxpayer money is used efficiently, Citizenship and Immigration Minister Jason Kenney said Thursday. The Liberals are urging the government to reverse a decision to cut national settlement funding allocations by $53 million a year. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a harsh and draconian and inexplicable cut to the most vulnerable people in our midst,” Toronto MP Bob Rae said. The cuts for immigration

Liberal MP Bob Rae

settlement services come after steady increases since the $111-million budget was inherited from the previous Liberal government, which had frozen funding for 13 years, Kenney said on a conference call.

After a request for proposals was put out this year and bureaucrats analyzed the responses, some agencies did not get their funding renewed, Kenny said. “The organizations have to meet certain performance measures,” he said. “They have to serve a large number of clients, they have to have solid programs, financial accountability, measure their outcomes and be responsive to the local needs of the communities they’re serving.” THE CANADIAN PRESS

Baldwin sues Costner over deal with BP Actor claims he was excluded from a meeting during which BP agreed to pay deposit on centrifuge order PETER KRAMER/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FILE

Stephen Baldwin has sued fellow actor Kevin Costner over their investments in a device that BP used in trying to clean up the massive Gulf of Mexico oil spill. The federal lawsuit filed in New Orleans Wednesday by Baldwin and a friend claims Costner and a business partner duped them out of their shares of an $18-million deal for BP to purchase centrifuges from a company they formed after the April 20 spill. BP ordered 32 of the centrifuges, which separate oil from water, and deployed a few of the devices on a barge in June. BP capped the well in July and kept more oil from leaking until the seafloor gusher was permanently sealed in September. Costner’s publicist, Arnold Robinson, declined to comment Thursday on the suit’s allegations.

Newspaper says it has full cache of cables

Stephen Baldwin

Baldwin and his friend, Spyridon Contogouris, owned shares in Ocean Therapy Solutions, the company that marketed the centrifuges to BP. But Baldwin and Contogouris claim they were deliberately excluded from a June 8 meeting between Costner, his business partner Patrick Smith and a BP executive, Doug Suttles. At

the meeting, the suit says, Suttles agreed to make an $18-million deposit on a $52-million order for the devices. Baldwin and Contogouris say they didn’t know about the deal when, three days later, they agreed to sell their shares of the company for $1.4 million and $500,000, respectively. The two say they were entitled to shares of BP’s deposit. Instead, their suit claims, Costner and Smith “schemed” to use money from BP’s deposit to buy their shares in the company. Costner and Suttles visited Port Fourchon, La., in June to talk about the plan to use the centrifuges. “It was designed to give us a fighting chance, to fight back the oil before it got us by the throat,” Costner said at the time.

THE ROYAL MINT/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The “warts and all” portrait of William and Kate has drawn the ire of royalty buffs.

Royal coins: An inconvenient truth Commemorative coins derided for likeness of royal couple William looks more like Al Gore, critics say That’s Kate Middleton? Britain’s Royal Mint on Thursday released a commemorative coin featuring portraits of Prince William and his bride-to-be, but critics say the results are far from lifelike. Images of the couple on the memento bear little resemblance to either the prince or his betrothed. Middleton, 28, appears plump in the face and lips

and has bags under her eyes, while some critics suggest William looks more like former U.S. vicepresident Al Gore. The £5 ($7.75 Cdn) coin — which costs £9.99 ($15.50) to buy — marks the Nov. 16 engagement of the second-in-line to the British throne. The couple will marry April 29. “This coin is of historical importance, so to get it

so wrong seems ridiculous,” Ingrid Seward of Majesty magazine told Britain’s Sky News. The Royal Mint said the coin was designed by its inhouse engraving team and both the Queen and Prince William had given their consent to the design. Staff used photos of the couple to produce the images, it said. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Panic dash Retailers counting on male, not female, shoppers to save the day For men on a mission, there’s success (finding the perfect gift), there’s failure (giving up and hitting the pub) and then there’s the safe choice: The gift certificate. In Britain — battered by economic woes and a shopping season shortened by snowy weather that clogged traffic and delayed deliveries — the final hopes of rescuing the retail season rest on lastminute shoppers, predominantly men who are desperate to find a credible gift before it’s too late. This pressure is expected to bring record numbers of nervous, creditcard-toting consumers into Britain’s malls as retailers forecast the most intense shopping binge of the year. “It is a phenomenon,� one retail manager said. “Each year there’s always the last-minute sort of des-

perate kind of guy looking for that special gift without even the slightest clue what it might be. They don’t know the height of their partner, or the size of their partner, and then they’re embarrassed that they don’t know.� Experts say that today should see the most intense shopping activity of the year, especially because so many people need to buy fresh food for their gala Christmas dinners. Demand has built up during the past five days as much of the country has been paralyzed by treacherous icy roads. Even without the weather factor, there has been a strong trend in recent years for people to buy presents later in the Christmas season, said Richard Dodd, spokesman for the British Retail Consortium.

Overheated housing sector to cool in 2011

Last minute. Flurry

‘We anticipate a fairly lacklustre year for residential housing, with modestly higher sales volumes’: Expert Housing stalls An International Monetary Fund report said Canada’s overheated housing market combined with record levels of consumer debt are risks that could curtail future economic growth. It said Canada’s housing sector has reached its peak and may be due for a correction, although a collapse is unlikely. The Canadian Real Estate Association has projected a 4.9 per cent slide in sales this year and a nine per cent decline next year.

ly active winter and spring — prompted by pent-up demand coming out of the recession, along with expectations of rising interest rates and higher taxes being introduced in two provinces — gave way to an unusually soft summer. Sales returned to a more typical, sustainable level in the fall. Adrienne Warren, senior economist at Scotia Economics, predicts a more subdued Canadian market in 2011 as interest rates remain near historic lows, but in a climate of global economic uncertainty.

Canada’s housing market was one of the best performers — and one of the most volatile — among advanced countries in 2010, but appears poised for a lacklustre turn next year, Scotia Economics says. This year, Canada was among six of 12 countries studied that saw home prices increase, according to the bank’s year-end Globe Real Estate Trends report issued Thursday. Other countries that saw price advances included Australia, the United Kingdom, France, Sweden and Switzerland. Prices in the U.S. and Germany were flat, and those in Ireland, Italy,

5 SANTA’S HEAD ELF MINUTES WITH:

The “Head Elf” at Canada’s top Santa School (yes, they have a school) makes a list of what it takes to be a stellar St. Nick. Why would someone enrol in Santa School?

The two most common reasons are that people want to volunteer for organizations, or want to have a part-time job, oftentimes after retirement. What do you teach in class? Calgarian Jennifer Andrews’ unbridled enthusiasm for Christmas made her the natural choice to head the country’s top Santa School, after the passing of founder Victor Nevada. To learn more about her program, go to santaschool.com.

MICHAEL DE ADDER

You’ve got one of the biggest icons in North America, so it takes a lot more than just putting on a cotton beard and saying, “Ho ho ho.” We teach them how to speak, how

to walk, how to enter and exit, how to care for their beards. And then, once the children are sitting on their knees, there are sometimes tough questions thrown at them so we want to make sure they can deal with that. Because not every child’s life is really wonderful and we want to make sure the children aren’t misled, that they have a good experience. That’s far more involved than people would think.

It’s far more involved. Because Santa is such a big part of people’s holiday celebrations, people have been dressing up as Santa

at parties. And as wellmeaning as that is, it’s usually the president of the company or somebody’s dad and they just put on an elasticsecured beard. That’s been part of the downfall in people not thinking Santa’s real, when you and I both know he’s real. If it’s not done well, it loses some of the magic. You took over the school from Victor Nevada, who was considered the best Santa in the country. What made him so special?

He had a lot of empathy. He didn’t have a very good childhood himself so I think he tried to recreate

one for other kids. Over and above that he was a very good actor. And he also had that little twinkle in his eye — not everybody has that. Is that what you try to impart to your Santas?

Some is innate but most things can be taught. Still, the right attitude has to be in place. Have you ever had students who just couldn’t quite get it?

We did have one fellow who found himself an elf through the whole experience, so it’s not like he was demoted, but he was really a much better elf than Santa! JORDANA DIVON

Up there Down Under Phone home Worth mentioning Mysterious lights in the sky and even a flying saucer are among the reported UFO sightings detailed in classified documents released by New Zealand’s military this week. The thousands of documents cover more than 50 years of New Zealanders’ reports of encounters with unidentified flying objects. Most files suggest natural explanations for the sightings, including meteors and reflections off boat lights. Among the reports was one from a man who wrote a letter in 1955 to

inform authorities he had seen flying saucers, even witnessing one take off. The files also cover the country’s best-known UFO mystery in 1978 in the southern island town of Kaikoura. A cargo plane reported strange lights following it and air traffic controllers detected radar blips they could not explain.

Metro Minute with alternative Christmas

The documents showed the government carefully took note of such reports, even if some citizens only received a polite thanks for their theories. New Zealand’s Defence Force released the files Wednesday under a freedom-of-information request. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Life in this big, beautiful multicultural stew we call home means having a number of great options this weekend for those who don’t celebrate Christmas. One favourite, er, tradition involves Chinese food and a Hollywood flick, a tradition so widely practised in certain neighbourhoods you’re advised to reserve a table weeks in advance. For last minute revellers,

head to 331 Spadina Ave. so you can line up for an hour outside Lee Garden. Bundle up because their succulent avocado and beef tenderloin dish makes the wait worthwhile. After dinner, travel a few blocks south to ScotiaBank Theatre to take in The King’s Speech. Get popcorn because you’ll be hungry in an hour. JORDANA DIVON

It all begins with Gwyneth Paltrow crooning away as a washed-up western singer in the redemptive drama Country Strong (01/07) and filmmaker Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation) observing the lonelier side of being an A-list celebrity in Somewhere (01/07).

Winter may be upon us but at least there’s warmth in the cinematic fire that’s stirring in 2011. With the new year kicking off everything from dramatic festival favourites (Biutiful, 02/11) to a Roman epic adventure (The Eagle, 02/11), multiplexes will be warming up in 2011. Here’s Metro’s look at the most promising movies to hibernate with through the chilly season:

Other notable winter titles: Season of the Witch (01/07) The Dilemma (01/14) Another Year (01/14) The Company Men (01/21) Casino Jack (01/28)

The Green Hornet opens Jan. 14.

February If you haven’t seen enough of Stratford’s biggest pop star yet, you can catch Justin Bieber: Never Say Never (02/11) in 3-D. Also in the third-dimension: the animated garden gnome comedy Gnomeo and Juliet (02/11) and Drive Angry (02/25) featuring Nicolas Cage as a very vengeful father. Meanwhile, Adam Sandler convinces Jennifer Aniston to help him score in Just Go

With It (02/11), while bored hubby Owen Wilson gets a Hall Pass (02/25) from his wife to have an affair. But February is defined mostly by suspense, with films such as the college-themed horror flick The Roommate (02/04), sci-fi blockbuster I Am Number Four (02/18), Liam Neeson’s mistaken-identity thriller Unknown (02/18) and the James Cameron-produced underwater nail-biter Sanctum (02/04).

Sucker Punch opens March 25.

and Ryan Gosling quarrel as volatile lovers in Blue Valentine (01/07), while Incendies (01/21) Canada’s submission to the Oscars, is a time-shifting drama that’s racking up acclaim just in time for its release. And where would January be without a fluffy rom-com? Worry not: Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman are platonic friends trying to maintain an aloof sexual arrangement in No Strings Attached (01/21). Didn’t Seinfeld test this premise 20 years ago?

Liam Neeson stars in Unknown, which opens Feb. 18.

Johnny Depp kicks off the month voicing a gunslinging chameleon in the quirky animated comedy Rango (03/04), while other (partly) animated adventures offer friendly alien encounters in Mars Needs Moms (03/11) and Paul (03/18). Serious literature gets the big-screen treatment with another cinematic makeover of Charlotte Brontë’s classic Jane Eyre (03/11) and novelist Michael Connelly’s

adaptation of The Lincoln Lawyer (03/18). Meanwhile, Amanda Seyfried stars as the amped-up fairytale heroine Red Riding Hood (03/11). Expect even more fantastical treats such as Beastly (03/18), a modern take on Beauty and the Beast, the dystopian thriller Battle: Los Angeles (03/11) and Watchmen-director Zack Snyder’s multi-dimensional actionflick Sucker Punch (03/25) all aiming to ignite the springtime.

From Babe’s Ferdinand the duck: “Christmas means carnage!”

From Life of Brian: “We are three wise men.” “Well, what are you doing creeping around a cow shed at two o’clock in the morning? That doesn’t sound very wise to me.” From American Psycho’s Patrick Bateman: “Hey,

BIGGEST COMEDY Jeff Craig, SIXTY SECOND PREVIEW

You Sleigh Me Looking for holiday laughs? According to Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life, every day in Heaven is Christmastime, complete with dancers dressed as sexy Santas. In Trading Places we first see Dan Aykroyd drunk and decked out as Santa on a bus eating crusted food stuck in his beard. Even funnier is Ferdinand the duck’s alarming exclamation “Christmas means carnage!” in the movie Babe.

Creepy Christmas There are dozens of Christmas horror films with names like Silent Night, Deadly Night, but they’re still too Christmasy for this list. I’m thinking more along the lines of American Psycho: who can forget Wall Street serial killer Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) wearing reindeer antlers? Or, for that matter, the Christmas Eve viral outbreak that decimates the planet in I Am Legend.

Movie review

Cast lifts Richler classic Swift’s story all but lost in this disaster Gulliver’s Travels Genre: Comedy Director: Rob Letterman Stars: Jack Black, Jason Segel, Amanda Peet 8

Jack Black’s latest film might be called Gulliver’s Travels, but the only things it shares with

Jonathan Swift’s masterful satire is the title, the land of little people named Lilliput and a scene in which Gulliver empties his bladder to put out a fire. Unless there’s a giant robot battle not available in most editions of the novel, it has to be assumed that no one involved with this production bothered to read it. Instead they decided it would be a good idea to have a giant Jack Black try

to teach an 18th-century society about Star Wars. Somehow, against all odds, the final movie turned out to be even worse than that description sounds. The once entertaining Black hasn’t found a project suited to his skills since School Of Rock, and it’s painful to watch him embarrass himself as a slacker mail clerk who is transported to Lilliput through the Bermuda Tri-

angle (no exaggeration, that’s what happens). This abysmal movie is so ill conceived that it’s hard to imagine even young children being forgiving enough to find it entertaining. The studio seems to agree, tacking on an unnecessary 3-D conversion to try and steal away as much money as possible from the poor suckers who accidentally buy a ticket for this Christmas turkey.

Barney’s Version Genre: Drama Director: Richard J. Lewis Stars: Dustin Hoffman, Paul Giamatti, Rosamund Pike 888 1⁄2

Barney’s Version, based on Mordecai Richler’s final novel, gives Paul Giamatti his most memorable part since Sideways. Utterly compelling as the kind of guy who calls his exwife’s new husband with

the offer of some nude pictures, “so you can see what she looked like in her prime,” he glides — or more rightly put, drunkenly stumbles — through three wives, an accusation of murder and countless cigars toward a battle with Alzheimer’s disease. While the filmmaking occasionally veers into TV-movie territory, Giamatti and the cast — Dustin Hoffman, Rosamund Pike and Minnie Driver — are by turns touching, caustic, hilarious and, above all, entertaining.

HOW TO SPEND THAT X-MAS CASH Sound Check

ALAN CROSS SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

et’s assume that there will be some money under the tree tomorrow morning. Rather than do the responsible thing and save it or make a donation to charity, you’ll want to blow it all on Boxing Day. But on what?

Buy a Turntable

Although there’s some statistical evidence that the vinyl renaissance has plateaued, there’s enough momentum in this fetishism for things to

keep going for a while longer. The turntable market hasn’t been this crowded in more than a decade. If you’re planning to rip your records to MP3 and then put them on the shelf, then think about a turntable that can be connected to your computer via USB. I’ve seen one of the ION models going for less than $80 online. But if you’re a purist and you plan to actually listen to your vinyl over and over again, spring for something more expensive (i.e. above $350). When rumours of the demise of the Technics SL-1200 started spreading last fall, I took the plunge last Dec. 26 on what will be the last turntable I ever buy. And now that Panasonic has confirmed that production will end in 2011, it’s now or never ($800–$1,000). Get That Box Set You’ve Been Lusting After

This year was a good one for high-end collections. The Soundgarden retrospective is one of my favourites featuring CDs, a DVD, vinyl (12-inch and seven-inch), posters, a book with liner notes and

more ($150-ish). Beatles fans should look into the Lennon Signature Box (11 discs, 119 tracks) or the new Band on the Run deluxe set (four discs, including an audio documentary and a series of videos for about $90). And Springsteen fans really should have The Promise: The Darkness on the Edge of Town Story (three CDs, three DVDs plus an 80page spiral-bound notebook of handwritten lyrics and pictures, all for about $95.) Splurge on Apps

With hundreds of thousands of apps available across multiple platforms, there’s something for everyone. SoundHound is an excellent music identification app ($4.99). Cleartune tunes any instrument perfectly ($3.99). Music Studio is a multitrack studio that lives in your pocket ($14.99). AmpliTube turns your iPhone or iPad into a personal amplifier (Free, but the real winner is the full version at $19.99). And NanoStudio is a stunning musicmaking app that pros love ($14.99).

Hilson backs Brown

Singer herself has faced minor fan backlash over sexier image Keri Hilson called her new album No Boys Allowed, but a collaboration with one young man has been drawing attention. The pop-R&B singer has become the most prominent female artist to collaborate with Chris Brown since his arrest last year for attacking his then-girlfriend Rihanna. The album cut One Night Stand is her second duet with Brown, following Superhuman, recorded in 2008. “I didn't want to be one of those women who is so unforgiving and be yet another person who is slapping him on his hand and crucifying him,” Hilson said in an interview. “You have to be allowed back into good graces, meaning, 'Let me earn my trust back to you, let me earn my respect back.' And Chris has done that. He's crawled back into the public eye. ... Women were so unforgiving. And I under-

stand why. I don't condone what he did. But I also believe in second chances.” Hilson, 28, calls the 21year-old Brown a friend and said she wants the public to separate his mistakes from his music. De-

spite repeated apologies and atonement-focused songs, Brown struggled to connect with pop audiences in 2010, releasing a series of mixtapes online in hopes of gaining traction, finally finding success with the No. 1 R&B hit Deuces. Although Brown was recently nominated for three Grammys, Hilson blames unfair news coverage for his struggles. “When you're an entertainer, I don't believe that anything you do in your personal life should undermine your creative efforts in any way,” she said.

The results are in! Canadians love their libations this time of year Are holiday tipples an important part of the festive season? According to 82 per cent of Canadians, the answer is yes! In a recent poll commissioned by Evangeline PR, more than 80 per cent of Canadians indicated that a glass of festive merriment is a yuletide must. “Canadians love to celebrate during the holidays and mouth-watering cocktails (or mocktails) make the season that much more festive,” says Sherri Zielinski, president of Evangeline PR. To ensure your seasonal sips are a smashing success, here are the Top 10 tips to ensure your bar is holiday-ready:

and not in the kitchen. • Purchase festive-themed glassware in which to serve your tipples.

Christmas past

• Decorate your bar with colours of the season such as a red velvet underlay and a green or gold overlay. • Stock up on seasonal garnishes such as cinnamon sticks, cranberries and candy canes to transform any drink into a holiday masterpiece.

Festive glassware can add some spirit to your spirits.

Beer vodka and treat your guests to a grown-up rootbeer float. • Create a custom menu with fun drink names; place in a holiday frame to display on your bar.

• Ice is nice: Make extra and store it: you can never have too much.

• For no muss, no fuss cocktails, choose flavoured vodkas such as Three Olives Bubble that can be served alone, with pink lemonade or lemonlime soda for a quick, two-ingredient delicious cocktail.

• If you don't have a bar, consider purchasing a bar cart: it ensures more time is spent with your guests

• Serve up some nostalgia with soda-fountain bar drinks from yesteryear. Try Three Olives Root

• Drink responsibly: invite guests to stay overnight or pre-order taxis. NEWS CANADA

A few leftover sweets c an make for an instant tree decoration.

It’s unanimous: Canadians prefer traditional Christmas celebrations to modern ones, so move over, Jonas Brothers ... Elvis is still King — at least during the holidays. “The holidays are a time for nostalgia,” says Canadian caterer Madeleine Johari. “We enjoy reminiscing about the ‘good ole days’ during the holidays, which is why retro-themed celebrations are so popular”

Gingerbread, gumdrops, chocolates and shortbread ... the holidays wouldn’t be the same without those special nostalgic treats to satisfy our yuletide sweet tooth. According to Madeleine Johari, Canadian caterer and candy expert, “Sweets spark fond memories of the holidays more than any other food.” Johari says “distinctive

flavours such as bubble gum, root beer, licorice and peppermint conjure up images of holidays past that inspire us to reminisce with friends and family. And that’s what the holidays are all about!” For some creative ways to incorporate nostalgic sweets into your holiday celebrations and create edible memories to last a

lifetime, Johari recommends the following: • Thread gumballs on a long piece of string to make a festive and colourful garland for your tree. It’s also a great reward in January when it’s time to take the decorations down. • Create edible straws for drinks by replacing the

plastic ones with licorice sticks for an extra sweet finish. • Accessorize with sweets: on a silver platter, offer guests a selection of candy necklaces, rings, bracelets and more for easy access to the seductive smell and taste of sweets all night long: this is a kids favourite! NEWS CANADA

Pipe dreams in Philly

Hearing world’s largest organ in Macy’s a Christmas tradition Organ was built for 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair and purchased by retail magnate John Wanamaker in 1909 Now maintained by a large on-site workshop and two full-time paid curators Music lovers from around the world have always made pilgrimages to hear the Wanamaker Grand Court Organ, which resides not in a church, but in a Philadelphia department store. It's the largest operational pipe organ in the world — some say the world's largest playable instrument. And on the eve of its 100th year of serenading shoppers, it's never sounded better. But at Christmastime, the organ, a National Historic Landmark, belongs not to tourists so much as to Philadelphians. Its holiday organ concert and sweetly old-fashioned light show has for generations been as much of a local tradition as trimming the tree or sitting on Santa's lap. Located in a Macy's that was originally the John Wanamaker chain's flagship store, the organ's polished mahogany console is tucked behind racks of sweaters and skirts.

With narration by Julie Andrews, animated bears, snowflakes, nutcrackers and reindeer take visitors through a series of prerecorded Christmas songs with a live organ concert as the finale. “It's magical,” said Margie Fitzpatrick, a native Philadelphian who fondly recalled organ concerts with her parents, then her children, and was at a recent show with her two-year-old granddaughter. “Hearing it just makes you feel blessed.” Superlatives are unavoidable when describing the symphonic, 287-ton organ. With 28,543 pipes, it embodies the sounds of not one orchestra, but three. In contrast, the organ at Notre Dame in Paris has about 8,000 pipes. St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City tallies about 9,000. The Wanamaker pipes range from five millimetres to about 10 metres in length, are made of wood or metal, and span five

Time runs out on MacLean in N.J. CHARLES KRUPA/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Facing the prospect of missing the playoffs for the first time since 1997, the New Jersey Devils fired rookie coach John MacLean on Thursday and brought back the firm hand of Jacques Lemaire to try to salvage the season. The Devils have been one of the most disappointing teams in the NHL this season. New Jersey is tied with the New York Islanders for the fewest points in the league with 20

in 33 games (9-22-2). Their 59 goals are also the fewest. The 65-year-old Lemaire is expected to coach the team Thursday night against the Islanders. “It’s a decision that certainly is not one that’s pleasant or we feel good about,” Devils president and general manager Lou Lamoriello said. “But it’s a decision that, in my opinion, had to be made.” Lamoriello made the decision two days after the

Devils dropped a 5-1 decision to Washington for their third straight loss and eighth in nine games this month. The Devils have been outscored 15-3 in the last three games. A perennial contender, the Devils were expected to be among the leaders again this season after re-signing all-star forward Ilya Kovalchuk to a 15-year, $100million US contract in the off-season.

Bronco gets cited for assault NFL PHOTOS

Broncos Pro Bowl linebacker Elvis Dumervil has been cited for assault and disturbing the peace for an alleged run-in with a security guard at Invesco Field. Denver court records show the reported incident happened on Oct. 24, the day the Broncos were blown out 59-14 by the Oakland Raiders. Dumervil’s lawyer, Harvey Steinberg, told The As-

sociated Press the linebacker forgot his credentials and a guard wouldn’t allow him into a players’ parking lot, despite Dumervil showing his driver’s licence. Steinberg said Thursday that it was a simple disagreement and that it’s “unfair Elvis is being villainized.” The incident was first reported by Denver’s KDVR-TV. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

McNabb’s agent goes on the attack Washington coaches slammed as ‘disrespectful’ over handling of QB Shanahan defends decisions as ‘not personal, but strictly professional’ Ups and downs Donovan McNabb was benched only once in 11 years with Philadelphia, and he’s already doubled that total with the Redskins since being acquired by the team in April. Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said he felt Rex Grossman had a better grasp of the team’s twominute offence. After benching him the first time, the Redskins gave McNabb a five-year contract extension worth up to $78 million US. The deal contains a clause that allows the Redskins to cut McNabb before next season with no further financial obligation.

The simmering feud between Donovan McNabb and Mike Shanahan and his son continued Thursday with a blistering statement from the quarterback’s agent. Fletcher Smith took aim directly at the Washington coach and Kyle Shanahan, the Redskins’ offensive coordinator, for the way they have handled the benching of his client. Smith said the bad blood between the quarterback and the Washington coaches is due to McNabb’s suggestions for improving the Redskins’ offence. “I believe there is tension between Donovan and Kyle that’s rooted in the fact that Donovan has suggested modifications to Kyle’s offence based on intricacies

Donovan has learned in his NFL career,” Smith wrote. “For example, Donovan has asked all year that the team run more screen passes to help manage the pass rush more effectively. Ironically, Kyle decided to employ Donovan’s suggestions after he unceremoniously benched him on Sunday.” McNabb listened to questions from reporters Thursday while sitting in his car after practice, but did not answer before driving off. He was benched before last Sunday’s game against Dallas and told by Mike Shanahan that he would not play the remainder of the season. Smith said in a statement that the Shanahans have made comments that go beyond disrespectful and “unprecedented for a six-

time Pro Bowl quarterback such as Donovan.” Smith said the comments made by the Shanahans — “both Mike and more specifically Kyle” — have made the quarterback’s relationship with Washington difficult to maintain. Late Thursday, Mike Shanahan responded with a statement of his own. “As I stated earlier, when I traded for Donovan McNabb I had hoped that he would lead us to the playoffs,” Mike Shanahan said. “No one wanted him to be more successful than me. When the team was 5-8 and mathematically out of the playoffs, I made the decision to evaluate our other two quarterbacks.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Rock GM downplays pre-season brawl

The National Lacrosse League is looking into a bench-clearing brawl this month in a pre-season scrimmage between the Toronto Rock and Buffalo Bandits. “The league is currently in the process of reviewing the video of the brawl, and expects to issue discipline at some point next week,” the league said yesterday in a statement. The Dec. 15 game at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena in Hagersville, Ont., was called in the third quarter after

the brawl, with Buffalo leading 5-4. The melee saw players coming off the bench and pairing off across the playing surface, with both goalies going at it. Toronto GM Terry Sanderson asked that fans who watch the YouTube video of the brouhaha put it in perspective. “They should realize it’s no uglier than the hockey ones that I’ve seen, the baseball ones that I’ve seen,” he said. “People sometimes try to, I believe,

Service Directory

paint the lacrosse end of things as being very violent. “Although it’s something that nobody really condones, it’s just there’s not a lot of love lost between the two teams. It’s pre-season, guys are just trying to let coaches know that they will do anything to make the club. “When these things do happen, it’s mass chaos ... guys just thought they had to settle things themselves, I guess.” Video of the incident shows it started after two

players went at it near the Rock goal when a Bandit forward took offence at a cross-check from a Toronto defender as play resumed from a stoppage. Other players on the floor watched as the two fighters went to the ground, and two officials stepped in to stop the encounter. But the Bandit kept swinging from the top position, prompting other Rock players — quickly followed by their Bandit markers — to approach. THE CANADIAN PRESS
