Funeral for murder victim draws hundreds The 45-year-old mother of three was killed on New Year’s Day. Her live-in boyfriend, Paul Hindle, stands charged with second-degree murder. Story, page 4.

Mayor Rob Ford’s administration has moved closer to a February lockout or strike, asking a provincial mediator to declare a deadlock in contract talks with 6,000 unionized outside workers. The city expects Ontario Labour Minister Linda Jeffrey to issue a report affirming the deadlock on Tuesday. A city lockout, or union strike, would become legal 17 days later, around Feb. 3. Deputy Mayor Doug Holyday, chair of the city’s labour relations committee, accused the Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 416 of being unwilling to negotiate. The administration’s Thursday request for the “no-board” report is merely intended to apply pressure on Local 416, he said.

“The sole function of (a ‘no-board’ report) is to ensure they are one step closer to their lockout. If there is a labour disruption ... it will be solely at the feet of this administration.” CUPE LOCAL 416 PRESIDENT MARK FERGUSON

“It’s not our intent to lock them out, I can tell you that. We want a negotiated settlement, and that’s why we’re doing these things,” he told reporters. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Man shot by police, woman found dead in Oakville FACEBOOK.COM

Oakville isn’t a town that sees a lot of violence. Not like Thursday. Halton police had to deal with two deaths within the space of a couple of hours and in the same general area. A man was shot and killed in a confrontation with police in a police station parking lot. Soon after, police were called to a nearby home regarding the suspicious death of a woman.

Police have not confirmed a link between the two incidents. The unidentified man was shot dead during a confrontation outside the District 2 station south of Dundas Street and west of Trafalgar Road at about 11:35 a.m. Investigators say a man had been causing damage to a vehicle in the police parking lot. It’s not clear if he was armed. Soon after the confrontation

Katherine Newman, 43, was found dead in her Oakville home.

began, shots rang out and the man was killed. About five metres from where the man’s body lay was a silver Nissan that appeared to have struck a Halton police van. The Nissan had a smashed right front fender and the driver’s door was open. The Nissan at the scene of the shooting was leased by a Kyle Newman. Police have identified the

woman found dead as Katherine Newman, 43. Family confirmed she was married to a Kyle Newman. “It is disturbing,” Sgt. Dave Cross told reporters at the police station. That incident is being investigated by the Special Investigations Unit, which deals with cases of sexual assault, serious injury or death involving police. No officer was injured.

Treatment ordered for accused in Ford threats CARLOS OSORIO/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

The man accused of threatening to kill Mayor Rob Ford appeared briefly in an Old City Hall courtroom Thursday and was returned to custody for at least two weeks. Scott MacIntyre, longtime common-law partner of the mayor’s sister, Kathy Ford, stood in court with his arms crossed and head bowed. The 45-year-old is charged with forcible entry,

two counts of threatening death and possession of heroin and cocaine. When ordered not to have contact with Ford or any members of his immediate family, he shook his head and mumbled “Fine by me.” An order for medical attention was issued after MacIntyre’s lawyer, Sam Boutzouvis, told the court his client needed immedi-

Mayor Rob Ford and his allies voted Thursday to reject or soften several of the most controversial proposed budget cuts. The changes by Ford’s executive committee do not fully address the criticisms of other councillors, some of whom said council would force further adjustments at its budget meeting next week. They do, however, significantly narrow the gap between the mayor and his opponents. “We are close,” said Coun. Shelley Carroll, a Ford critic and former budget chief. The changes will be paid for using about $8.8 million in unanticipated property-assessment growth. The committee did not touch the $154 million operating surplus left at the end of 2011, which Ford argues should not be used to balance the operating budget. Ford had strongly endorsed the budget in

Councillor can’t tag this on Mercer YOUTUBE

TV host defends rants in laneway after Mississauga councillor says its graffiti encourages vandalism Rick Mercer is firing back at a Mississauga city councillor who says the comedian’s famous rants along Toronto’s Graffiti Alley have hampered the suburb’s anti-graffiti efforts. “My rants are shot in an artist-friendly laneway. These are fabulous, vibrant, constantly-changing works of art,” Mercer wrote in an email to the Toronto Star. “I would wager many of those artists will be remembered long after the good councillor, who’s (sic) name escapes me.” At a Mississauga city council meeting Wednesday, Councillor Katie Mahoney suggested the graffiti backdrop of Mercer’s “Rant,” a popular segment on his long-running CBC Television program, Rick Mercer Report, glorifies vandalism. “Rick Mercer needs to know that he’s not doing anybody any good with his rants down the graffititagged alley,” she said.

“That’s not helping the cause across the country.” In an interview with the Star on Thursday, Mahoney said she stands by her original remarks, but emphasized that they were “certainly no knock against Rick Mercer at all.” “My concern is that this showing of Graffiti Alley ... doesn’t help in our efforts to combat illegal graffiti,” she said. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

Graffiti Alley Mahoney added that she wasn’t aware until after she made her comments that Graffiti Alley, located near Queen St. W., and Spadina Ave., is exempt from any graffiti bylaw and sanctioned as an area of “municipal significance” by Toronto city hall. For his part, Mercer said he doesn’t condone vandalism or tagging.

Rick Mercer is seen in a screen grab delivering one of his famous TV rants filmed in a graffiti-tagged alley.

‘My mom meant the world to me’: Daughter COURTESY CTV

She was remembered as a caring daughter, sister and friend, a pioneer of women’s hockey in the Leaside community she loved, and a talented business woman who started her own interior design company. But at a solemn funeral that drew 500 mourners Thursday, 45-year-old Lisa Lebitka was, above all, remembered as a devoted mother of three. “My mom meant the

Lebitka’s ex-husband, Mike Donaldson, and Paige’s younger siblings Holly and Charley stood in support nearby, next to a covered casket adorned with a single pink rose. “Whether it was ‘Thanks for taking me to Disney World’ or crying in her

spied on Mom furious after photos RCMP Rae: Documents removed from Facebook


Site considers the breastfeeding photos a violation of its policy on nudity, according to B.C. mother Facebook page created in support of the mom PETER MCCABE/TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

The RCMP spied on Bob Rae during his student activist days and likely amassed a personal dossier on the future Liberal leader, newly declassified documents reveal. Mountie security agents, wary of late-1960s campus turmoil, kept a close eye on the University of Toronto student council — apparently relying on a secret informant to glean information about Rae and other council members. The RCMP Security Service conducted widespread surveillance of universities, unions, peace groups and a myriad of other organizations during the Cold War in an effort to identify left-wing subversives. A surprised Rae says he had no idea the RCMP was watching him. “The notion that any of this posed a kind of a MISTAKEN MASTECTOMY

Emma Kwasnica, a breastfeeding advocate and founder of the online breast milk sharing network Human Milk 4 Human Babies, feeds her 23-month-old daughter, Chloe, as Sophie, left, and Anna watch TV last September.

A Vancouver woman is furious at Facebook after the company removed breastfeeding photos she posted on the social networking site. Emma Kwasnica, 33, said since she joined Facebook in 2008, nearly 30 of her breastfeeding photos have been taken down and her account has been temporarily frozen in four separate incidents. The latest incident occurred this past Saturday when she tried to log on, she said. Kwasnica said Facebook removed her photos because of what it says is a violation of its policies on obscenity, nudity and sexuHANDOUT

ally explicit content. “This is a child’s right to eat, a mother’s right to nurse her child,” Kwasnica said in a telephone interview from her Vancouver home. “There’s nothing sexually explicit in breastfeeding photos, nothing at all.” Kwasnica said she has sent emails to Facebook, but has yet to receive an apology or any kind of response. She said it has left her feeling confused about Facebook’s rules, pointing to a recent case in which Facebook issued a public apology to another woman in North Carolina who was in the same situation.

“So are American women allowed to post breastfeeding photos and Canadian women aren’t?” EMMA KWASNICA

Television station WCNC of Charlotte, N.C., reported on its website last month that Facebook apologized to Heather Stultz after it removed a breastfeeding photo she posted on her breastfeeding support page called Respect the Breast. Just as in Kwasnica’s case, WCNC reported that Stultz’s photo was initially removed because it violat-

ed Facebook’s rules on pornographic content. Eventually, Facebook reversed its decision on the photo in question and apologized, saying the photo was removed “in error.” “So are American women allowed to post breastfeeding photos and Canadian women aren’t?” Kwasnica said. “It’s very confusing. It’s very vague. And the only acceptable policy at this point is to leave all breastfeeding images alone.” A Facebook page was set up earlier this week in support of Kwasnica that has already attracted about 3,500 supporters.

Feds criticized over same-sex divorce issue

5,000 NDP MP Olivia Chow said that Canada used to be a “beacon of hope” for gay and lesbian couples wanting to get married but now it is a “a laughing stock.” Chow said if federal lawyers win their argument, then as many 5,000 non-residents who came to Canada to wed are not legally married.

PM says he won’t reopen debate after doubt cast on gay marriages “I think it’s the radical right by stealth.”

U.S. journalist Dan Savage, right, with his husband Terry Miller, at the LGBT Pride Month event at the White House in Washington last June. Savage said his husband reacted to the news they may not be legally married with “nothing you can print.”


Thursday. Thousands of same-sex marriages since 2004 involving couples from outside Canada are in limbo as a result of a new position taken by the Conservative government. In a nutshell, government lawyers are arguing in court that if same-sex couples could not be legally married in their home country, then their Canadian wedding is not valid. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

‘We’re going to fight’: U.S. writer Dan Savage JOE LOFARO IN OTTAWA

Outspoken American author and journalist Dan Savage told his husband Thursday morning their marriage was no longer valid. What did husband Terry Miller have to say about that? “Nothing you can print,” Savage told Metro

in an interview from Seattle. The couple was reacting to news reports according to which the Conservative government argued non-resident samesex couples who married in Canada are not legally wed if same-sex marriages are unlawful in their home jurisdictions. “We’re not crawled up

in the fetal position on the floor, we’re getting up and we’re going to fight,” he said. “But we’re pissed.” Savage said that the controversy has left marriages like his in “legal limbo.” “In Washington state, my husband and I are domestic partners because we’re married in Canada,” said Savage, who married

Miller in Vancouver in 2005. “So if we’re not married in Canada, we’re not domestic partners here.” Savage said the news was “personally distressing” and “a big step backwards for Canada.” He and his husband will continue to fight to ensure the issue is debated until equality is granted to all same-sex couples.

The Harper government is being accused of taking away same-sex rights by “stealth” in light of a surprise government stand that thousands of the nonresident gay and lesbian couples who came to Canada to exchange vows aren’t legally married after all. “The narrow interpretation of the law shows that the Harper government is trying to take away samesex rights by stealth, and Canadians need to know that the advances we thought were secure are now under threat from the Harper neo-conservatives,” Interim Liberal Leader Bob Rae told the Toronto Star

Iranian newspaper calls for retaliation

West. Bank

Asks why Iran did not avenge the chemistry expert, killed in Wednesday’s bombing, by striking Israel ATTA KENARE/GETTY IMAGES

A hard-line Iranian newspaper on Thursday called for retaliation against Israel, a day after the mysterious killing of a nuclear scientist in Tehran with a magnetic bomb attached to his car. Iran’s top leader blamed Israel and the U.S. Provocative hints from Israel reinforced the perception that the killing was part of an organized and clandestine campaign to set back Iran’s nuclear ambitions, which the U.S. and its allies suspect are aimed at producing weapons. Iran says the program is for peaceful purposes only. Iran’s nuclear confrontation with the West had already been escalat-

ing in the weeks before the killing, with the U.S. tightening sanctions against Tehran, and Iranian officials warning that they would shut a waterway vital to global oil shipping in response. The Wednesday assassination of Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan — at least the

fourth targeted hit against a member of Iran’s nuclear brain trust in two years — has heightened tensions even further. Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei blamed both Israel and the U.S. In a message read on Iranian state TV, he said the killing was carried out “with design or co-ordination of the CIA and the Mossad,” Israel’s spy agency. He pledged that Iran would punish those responsible. Tehran quickly blamed Israeli-linked agents backed by the U.S. and Britain. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton denied any U.S. role in the slaying. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Judge declares Natalee Holloway dead, 6 years later HANDOUT

An Alabama judge signed an order Thursday declaring Natalee Holloway dead, more than six years after the American teenager vanished on the Caribbean island of Aruba during a high school graduation trip. Judge Alan King signed the order at the close of a hearing in a Birmingham courtroom that was attended by the missing woman’s divorced parents, Dave and Beth Holloway.

Dave Holloway told the judge in September he believed his daughter had died and he wanted to stop payments on her medical insurance and use her $2,000 college fund to help her younger brother. Thursday’s hearing was scheduled long before a suspect questioned in Holloway’s disappearance, Dutchman Joran van der Sloot, pleaded guilty Wednesday in Peru to the 2010 murder of a woman in Lima.

Natalee Holloway disappeared in Aruba on May 30, 2005. The 18-year-old was last seen leaving a bar early that morning with van der Sloot. Her body was never found and the ensuing searches for the young woman garnered intense media scrutiny and worldwide attention. King acted on a petition by the father to have the missing 18-year-old declared dead.

Natalee Holloway

The teen’s mother originally objected, but her

lawyer, Charlie DeBardeleben, said she subsequently changed her mind once she understood her husband’s intentions. Natalee Holloway’s parents were divorced in 1993 and Beth Holloway sat in the back row of the courtroom, mostly staring at her hands in her lap during the hearing Thursday afternoon. She declined comment, but her attorney signalled it was a tough moment for her to see a judge sign an

Cut methane, soot to slow global warming: Scientists Measures would pay off with benefits to health, agriculture and climate worth 10 times the cost of implementing them, researchers say An international team of scientists says it has figured out how to slow global warming in the short run and prevent millions of deaths from dirty air: Stop focusing so much on carbon dioxide. The key, they say, is to reduce emissions of two powerful and fast-acting causes of global warming â&#x20AC;&#x201D; methane and soot. Carbon dioxide is the chief greenhouse gas and the one that world leaders have spent the most time talking about controlling. Scientists say carbon dioxide from coal and oil is a bigger overall cause of global warming, but reducing methane and soot of-

fers a quicker fix. Soot also is a big health problem, so dramatically cutting it with existing technology would save up to 4.7 million lives a year, according to the research published online Thursday in the journal Science. Two dozen scientists ran computer models of 400 existing pollution-control measures and came up with 14 methods that attack methane and soot. All 14 methods â&#x20AC;&#x201D; capturing methane from landfills and coal mines, cleaning up cook stoves and diesel engines and changing agriculture techniques for rice paddies and manure collection â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are

Reduce soot print Methane comes from landfills, farms, drilling for natural gas and coal mining. Soot, called black carbon by scientists, is a byproduct of burning and is a big problem with cook stoves using wood, dung and coal in developing countries and in some diesel fuels. Reducing methane and black carbon isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the best way to attack climate change, air pollution or hunger, but reducing those chemicals works simultaneously on all three problems, says Drew Shindell of NASA.

being used efficiently in many places, but are not universally adopted, said the studyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead author, Drew Shindell of NASA. If adopted more widely, the scientists calculate that would reduce projected global warming by 0.5 degrees Celsius by the year 2050. It also would increase annual yield of key crops worldwide by almost 135 million metric tons. And shifting the pollution focus does not mean ignoring carbon dioxide. Shindell said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The science says you really have to start on carbon dioxide even now to get the benefit in the distant future.â&#x20AC;? THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

news British spies face probe

News in brief

Campaign of Putin panned Minister Vladimir Putin launched the website for his presidential campaign Thursday, only to see it flooded with comments from detractors demanding he not run. The negative responses, which were followed by a freezing of the site that saw many of those critical comments vanish, illustrated the growing sense of discontent with Putin, whose centralized, top-down rule already has faced historic street protests in recent weeks.

LONDON. Britain’s spy agencies will face a criminal inquiry into claims that intelligence shared with Moammar Gadhafi’s regime led to the torture or rendition of two Libyan men and their families, authorities announced Thursday. An investigation was launched in 2008 when a former Guantanamo Bay detainee alleged that intelligence agencies were complicit in his torture. The inquiry later expanded to include claims by two Libyans who accused intelligence agents of sharing sensitive information with Gadhafi’s regime.

Keep eyes on the skies Russian probe ready to fall to Earth

It’s 14 tonnes of toxic space junk


A Russian spacecraft designed to burnish the nation’s faded space glory in a mission to one of Mars’ moons has turned into one of the heaviest, most toxic pieces of space junk ever. It will come crashing down to Earth in just a few days. The Russian space agency Roscosmos’ latest forecast has the unmanned Phobos-Ground probe falling out of Earth’s orbit Sunday or Monday, with the median time placing it over the Indian Ocean just north of Madagascar. It said the precise time and place of

its uncontrolled plunge can only be determined later, and unless someone actually spots fiery

streaks in the sky, no one may ever know where any surviving pieces end up. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The $170-million US Phobos-Ground mission was Russia’s most expensive and the most ambitious space endeavour since Soviet times. The spacecraft was intended to land on the crater-dented, potatoshaped Martian moon, collect soil samples and fly them back to Earth, giving scientists precious materials that could shed more light on the genesis of the solar system. The probe was successfully launched Nov. 9., but Russia’s space chief says the mission was ill-prepared.

Dogs saved from being canine cuisine SCREENGRAB

Thai authorities say they have rescued more than 750 dogs destined for cooking pots in Vietnam. Capt. Thirakiat Thongaram says a Thai navy patrol caught a gang of dog smugglers Thursday morning on the shore of the Mekong River in Nakhon Phanom province. He says the canines were to be transported through Laos to Vietnam, where dog meat is a delicacy. They will instead be sent to a shelter in Nakhon Phanom. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

This image shows cages with more than 750 dogs on a truck near a ferry ready to take them to Laos.

U.S. slams marines in ‘golden shower’ video Officials investigating video of men urinating on corpses A video depicting four U.S. Marines supposedly urinating on the corpses of Afghans has been condemned as “utterly deplorable” and “disrespectful.” It is “absolutely inconsistent with American values, with the standards of behaviour ... that the vast majority of marines hold themselves to,” U.S. Secre-

tary of State Hillary Clinton said Thursday. Clinton expressed “total dismay” over the video, which shows men dressed in combat gear standing over three bodies. It is unclear how the three died or whether they were Taliban or civilians. “Anyone found to have participated or to have known about it ... must be

held fully accountable.” A caption beneath the video, which was posted on YouTube, identifies the men as part of a scout sniper team assigned to 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines, out of Camp Lejeune, N.C. One man in the video says, “Golden like a shower.” Another begins to say, “The whole thing,” before it ends. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Man found guilty of public nudity Naturist charged after going through drive-thrus naked Claimed nudity was a legal form of expression PAOLA LORIGGIO/THE CANADIAN PRESS

An Ontario court upheld Canada’s public nudity law Thursday, saying it doesn’t infringe on freedom of expression or the right to practise naturism. While nudism could be considered a protected form of expression under certain circumstances, “requiring people to wear some modicum of clothing when in public is a reasonable limit,” Justice Jon-Jo A. Douglas told the court in delivering his judgment. The court ruling comes after a constitutional challenge by a man charged in incidents involving public nudity in the Bracebridge area. Brian Coldin was found guilty of partial nudity that

At Coldin’s trial, A&W and Tim Hortons workers testified he was nude when he came to the drive-thru windows and one worker said he pretended to reach for a wallet as if wearing pants. Outside court Thursday, Coldin said he wasn’t nude during that incident, but was wearing a towel. In his ruling, Douglas found Coldin’s actions expressed “not much more than his desire to be publicly nude.”

Awwww: Vancouver Aquarium’s sea otter Milo, the world’s cutest animal, succumbs to cancer at 12. A YouTube video of Milo and Nyac — also a sea otter — holding paws and floating on their backs, has racked up 17 million views. Nyac was the older woman; she died last year at 20. Who says otters are slippery? Milo was staunch.

WEEKEND, JANUARY 13-15, 2012




In the New Orleans-set crime thriller Contraband, Mark Wahlberg plays Chris Farraday, a reformed criminal forced to do the proverbial one last job when his brother-in-law Andy (Caleb Landry Jones) runs afoul of a local gangster (Giovanni Ribisi). To square the deal and pay-off Andy’s debt, Chris agrees to go back into his old line of work — smuggling. In this case he must illegally transport millions of dollars in counterfeit bills. But can he navigate around the police, ruthless drug lords and double crosses to keep Andy and his family safe? Ratings: Richard: 111 1⁄2 Mark: 111

Reel Guys


scene Scene in brief

Mark Wahlberg easily straddles the world of family man and tough guy in Contraband.

Old plot, new twist The ‘one last heist’ genre gets the grit of Mark Wahlberg in Contraband Richard: Mark, Maybe January isn’t a dumping ground for awful movies anymore. Used to be that only the dregs came out after Christmas, but Contraband is actually a pretty good thriller. It’s not brilliant, but succeeds mainly because Wahlberg can play the family man, as he does in the first part of the movie, and then switch gears to have believable tough-guy swagger. Mark: Well, the plot — One! Last! Heist! is as old as Dick Clark’s toupee. But the movie is all in the details — the gritty port milieu, the dirty hold of the cargo boat, the cheap ‘n’sleazy Panamanian

dives; this flick is the antidote to Miami Vice — there’s zero glamour in this smuggling game. As far as Wahlberg goes, I found him totally believable and it’s the best thing he’s done in a while. But what’s up with Ben Foster? Does he have to be a creep in every movie he’s in? RC: Foster is a fine but typecast actor. He really needs to break away from the deadbeat kind of characters he’s been playing lately. More work like his heartrending performance in The Messenger please, and less like paint-bynumber creepy guys he plays in movies like this

and The Mechanic. MB: And I was all excited to see Kate Beckinsale out of Vampirella drag — and then they gave her nothing to do; the worst wifey part in recent memory. The other supporting roles weren’t all that great, either, although Giovanni Ribisi does make a swell bad guy, and I’ll always have a soft spot for JK Simmons after his role in Oz. I like seeing him in anything. RC: With the way Ribisi chews the scenery here and his work in The Rum Diary he’s proving himself to be the hungriest actor in Hollywood next to Nic

Cage. He was fun. Beckinsale, not so much. Why cast her and then simply make her the damsel in distress? You’d think after kicking werewolf butt in four Underworld movies she’d be able to defend herself by now. Unfortunately the supporting characters are less interesting than the movie as a whole. MB: It’s not really an ‘actor’s movie,’ is it? But the mechanics of the heist work, as well as the action sequences, and that’s why it’s worth watching. Oh, and a fabulous art joke, which seems out of whack with the rest of the film, but is a hoot nevertheless.

A beastly outing


Chris Alexander takes his sons to Beauty and the Beast 3D The boys bond over chick-flick bashing CHRIS ALEXANDER


A few months ago, Metro revisited Disney’s iconic animated masterpiece The Lion King, whose original 2D visual pallet had been converted and re-released as 3D entertainment. This writer was charged with taking his budding movie buff four and a half-yearold son Jack to see the movie, a father/son rite of passage and also an alarming reminder at how times have changed. Because no matter how spectacular The Lion King remains, its level of emotional intensity and violent confrontation is something that, well, kids today in this more nervous pop cult landscape just aren’t as familiar with. Today, the house the mouse built digs up anoth-

er masterwork, again in 3D: 1992’s sumptuous, Oscar-nominated Beauty and the Beast. For this round, I opted to not only bring the sophisticated of taste Jack with me to critique, but also another member of my film-reared brood, threeyear-old Elliot, a young man who adores motion pictures ... but abhors wearing 3D glasses. Now that’s as good a place to start as any. Beauty is just that, a ravishing classic fairy tale, with every single hand drawn frame a work of warm art. So why then, cut up those delicate frames into 3D? The answer is, of course, to compete in today’s screen leaping obsessed marketplace. Fair enough, but while The Lion King’s conversion — with its bright, sun burnt vistas

— benefited from that dimensional goose, Beauty is a much darker affair and much of the gimmick is ineffective. And in Elliot’s case, annoying, as the lad kept removing his specs, refusing my many attempts to put them back on. No matter. He still was gripped by the picture. Both boys were. It’s tight, colourful, lively, operatic and brisk, with not a shred of flab upon its meticulously designed body. And while it’s still a rather intense, frightening affair (compared to say, Arthur Christmas) it lacks the relentless flesh eating and traumatic patricide of The Lion King. Instead, every gothic shock, howling wolf and the screaming beast is instantly reeled back in with singing teapots,

The 1992 Oscar-nominated Beauty and the Beast gets the 3D treatment this weekend.

spunky heroines and comic relief. And although the new 3D sheen lacks the punch it promises, it’s still exciting to see Beauty and the Beast return to screens so that parents raised on its

romantic, passionate charms can share it with their kids. It also for me, marks a milestone in Jack’s cinematic pallet in the form of his newly minted disdain

for chick flicks. “I loved that movie,” he remarked as the credits rolled. “But I hate girls in dresses that kiss.” There you have it.

Martial Arts star Gina Carano gets to kick Michael Fassbenderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s butt in Haywire, which opens next Friday.

Channing Tatum knows how to pick a fight. Last year, he quite vocally went on the record admitting he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t interested in watching or starring opposite a female action hero until Hollywood unearthed a woman who was truly intimidating. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always wanted someone that I would be afraid to fight. And they found one,â&#x20AC;? he grins, sitting in a suite at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s promoting his latest film, Haywire, a Bourne-esque action thriller about a covert operative caught in a deadly double cross thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s headlined by female mixed

Carano, who describes herself as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a tomboy who also loved Pride and Prejudice,â&#x20AC;? says she feels incredibly lucky to have been given the chance to do any movie, let alone the lead in a Soderbergh project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t consider myself what people are necessarily looking for,â&#x20AC;? she says, surprisingly sheepish for someone who knows her way around a submission choke-out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So I knew if I was going to get this opportunity, it was going to have to come to me.

martial arts star Gina Carano. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t she just the most amazing little thing ever?â&#x20AC;?

Carano, best known for her fight appearances and role as Crush on American Gladiators, was approached by Haywire director Steven Soderbergh to do an action movie, though he did caution her it would be â&#x20AC;&#x153;interestingâ&#x20AC;? to see who signed opposite on for roles that demanded grown men get their butts kicked by a girl â&#x20AC;Ś who also happens to be a trained Muy Thai fighter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real fighter, she can beat up most dudes,â&#x20AC;?

Movie reviews The Iron Lady Genre: Drama Director: Phyllida Lloyd Stars: Meryl Streep, Jim Broadbent, Richard E. Grant 811

The film begins in the present with Margaret Thatcher, the longest serving British Prime Minister of the 20th Century, diminished by age. She daydreams conversations with her late husband and reflects on the past, which leads us into the “greatest hits” biographical format that makes up most of the movie. It’s all rather standard, elevated by a performance that once again displays what a great technician Meryl Streep is. She embodies Thatcher, from the flamboyant hair to the everpresent pearls although

A Dangerous Method Genre: Drama Director: David Cronenberg Stars: Michael Fassbender, Keira Knightley, Viggo Mortensen 8111⁄2

the real heavy lifting is done in the “lion in winter” scenes. It’s there the movie goes beyond the showy impersonation and becomes an emotional, well rounded portrait. RICHARD CROUSE

Director David Cronenberg has rarely been this simply elegant. The story of two pioneering figures of psychoanalysis, Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender) and Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen), who have a falling out over an intelligent but troubled patient, Sabina Spielrein

(Keira Knightley), is sophisticated and stylish. Shot compositions and camerawork are kept simple so as not to distract from the star of the show — the dialogue. As you might imagine for a drama about therapists, there is a great deal of talk. A Dangerous Method won’t be for everyone. The combo of love story and birth of modern analysis is an odd mix, but in its introspection is a fascinating glimpse into the character’s lives and minds. RICHARD CROUSE

Joyful Noise Genre: Comedy/Musical Director: Todd Graff Stars: Queen Latifah, Dolly Parton, Keke Palmer 811

You’d have to be pretty hard hearted not to get a charge out of the outsized enthusiasm of Joyful Noise. OK, the script is overloaded; it’s unashamedly cornpone and “squeaky clean” is an understate-

ment. It concerns a local church choir in a vaguely unsettlingly small Georgia town where everyone knows your business. And sadly, Dolly Parton may have passed the surgical tipping point. However, the third act gospel competition is a glorious bolt of musical lightning that all but obliterates these niggling problems. ANNE BRODIE

Red Light Revolution Genre: Comedy/Foreign Director: Sam Voutas Stars: Jun Zhao, Vivid Wang, Xiduo Jiang 811

In this lighthearted Chinese comedy, a hapless entrepreneur has a streak of bad luck until he opens a sex toy shop in a conservative neighbourhood and discovers the repressed patrons are more willing

to shell out for his adult wares than he initially anticipates. While the subtitled film may attract art-house moviegoers, the laughs are fairly broad and the characters benign enough for a Sunday afternoon audience as Australian-born filmmaker Sam Voutas lends the Beijing comedy a keen Western sensibility.

Genre: Drama Director: Dee Rees Stars: Adepero Oduye, Kim Wayans, Aasha Davis 8111

From first time director Dee Rees and executive producer Spike Lee comes Pariah, a Sundance hit unfairly dismissed by some critics as Precious Lite. Both movies are set in inner city African American communities, and both feature a central character fighting to find her

place, but there the similarities end. Pariah is the story of Alike (Adepero Oduye), a 17-year-old struggling to assert her sexuality to her god-fearing mother and family. It’s a simple but vibrant movie, buoyed by authentic, heartfelt performances — particularly from Oduye, Kim Wayans as the mother and streetwise friend Sahra Mellesse — and, unlike Precious, blessed with an uplifting ending. RICHARD CROUSE



The Swell Season Genre: Documentary Directors: Nick August-Perna, Chris Dapkins, Carlo Mirabella-Davis Stars: Glen Hansard, Marketa Irglova 811⁄2

The triumphant Oscar acceptance speech that introduced the world to Falling Slowly songwriters Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova is not the climax of The Swell Season but rather a beginning: this ragged black-and-white documentary examines

what happened after the unexpected breakthrough of the 2008 indie musicalromance Once. Lifelong friends and former lovers despite their near-30-year age disparity, Hansard and Irglova cling together and drift apart during a concert tour capitalizing on Once’s success; the film is intimately observed but suffers from an absence of compelling drama. The subjects are ultimately just too nice. ADAM NAYMAN

Heartburn Reflux The USDA now recommends to eat 50% alkaline food (vegetables, legumes, salads, fruit). Health professionals suggest 80% alkaline food. Unfortunately, North American people eat 95% acidic food (meat, noodles, rice, bread, pastries, sweets, junk food). If you cannot change your diet to USDA’s 50% or closer to 80% alkaline food, consider to supplement with a natural health product that helps to increase your pH alkaline level close to a healthy 7. Ask for Bell Acidic Stomach/Alkaline Balance #39. It’s inexpensive, has no side effects and may eliminate the need for anti-acid pills many people take. As a bonus, an alkaline balanced body prevents many illnesses. See guarantee printed on box.  Reflux gave me a sore throat and I could not sing in the church choir anymore. After taking Bell #39 I have no more reflux and rejoice in singing again. Helene Giroux, 65, Quebec, QC  Have family history of heartburn. For last 10 years I suffered a lot with acid reflux. I told all family members about #39 being all natural, giving quick relief and having no side effects. Michael Fasheh, 49, Port Ranch, CA  Very happy with acid reflux relief. Last 4 years had increasing reflux despite taking anti-acid products. I am also trying to eat more alkaline food. Grzegorz Smirnow, 43, Mt. Prospect, IL  Suffered with reflux, choking and coughing. After starting Bell #39 I feel great. Amazed about the complete relief. Thanks from the bottom of my heart. #39 Katarina Tusa, 63, North York, ON Was sleeping sitting up to avoid reflux. I thought I had this health problem for life like my other family members. Bell #39 brought quick relief. Can sleep now normally, have more energy, feel great. Bell products are quite different.

Golden Globe nominees say they’re ready, even eager, for the comic wrath of host Ricky Gervais

Ben Mulroney’s three favourite Golden Globes red carpet moments.



When Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais took sharp swipes at Mel Gibson, Bruce Willis, Robert Downey, Jr. and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association at last year’s ceremony, some criticized the comedian for going too far. Downey described the vibe as “hugely mean-spirited, with mildly sinister undertones.” With Gervais back for his third turn as Globes host on Sunday, nominees are already preparing themselves for the British funnyman’s pointed jabs. Will Ricky Gervais have them cheering or “I’ll probably get the jeering at this year’s award ceremony? piss taken out of me, but it’s fine with me,” said ElDamian Lewis, nominat- that,” Murphy said. “He’s ton John, nominated for his song from Gnomeo & ed for his work on the TV very funny and very smart Juliet. “I’m British.

him, he doesn’t mean it, but he’s very funny,” Plummer said. Jean Dujardin, nominated for his starring role in the silent film The Artist (which is also up for best picture and is the night’s leading nominee with six bids), said it would be an honour if Gervais even mentioned him. But there’s a caveat, the actor said: “If he mocks me, he has to do it silently, without any words.” The 69th annual Golden Globe Awards will be presented Sunday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel and broadcast live on NBC.


“At a certain point during the red carpets, you’re told to stop doing interviews so they can get everyone inside for the show. Last year, as we were wrapping up, Vancouver-raised Cory Monteith spotted our ETALK logo and ran over to chat with us anyway. A publicist spotted us, and kept trying to shut the interview down until Cory asked her to please calm down and let him talk. He broke the rules because he didn’t want to miss the opportunity to say hi to Canada.” “I’d always wanted to talk to Emma Stone, and last year I got my chance. She came on the carpet with her platinum blonde hair because for her Spider-Man role, and was

absolutely stunning. It was refreshing to talk to someone whose star was rising, but was still so down to earth. She was fun, confident, wellspoken and didn’t take herself too seriously. Through her movies, you feel like you get a sense of who she is, and you do – there’s no pretence with her. You definitely won’t see Emma pulling a Lindsay Lohan.”

“ETALK is lucky to have a platform position at the Golden Globes, so we’re able to talk to a whole cast if the opportunity arises, and last year it did. The entire cast of The Walking Dead came onto our platform and I literally dropped to my knees and bowed to their greatness. The show is built for TV and movie fans, with an amazing cast. They’re all great stars who may not be at the Oscars, but their level of accomplishment is on par with anyone nominated for an Academy Award. I was honoured to have the chance to talk to them.” METRO

the first time the cast has been back together since the film’s release. “It’s been a lot of fun,” says Hess. “Because most of us hadn’t seen each other since it played at Sundance when we first screened it. It was kind of a fun, little reunion to get everyone back together for the table read…” Less enjoyable for Heder has been the increased acting workload. “It was a very relaxing film to do because…you can hide behind your eyelids and rest your voice,“ he laughs. “But for the lead character in an ongoing animated series, I’ve had to show way more emotional range than I’ve ever had in anything else.”

Mourning Maury Cast of Less Than Kind come together after sudden death of actor Maury Chaykin Filming now therapeutic




Overcoming the loss of your lead actor can be detrimental to a television series. For Less than Kind — who suddenly lost the prolific, irreplaceable Maury Chaykin in July — demise surely seemed imminent. “We thought about (calling it quits) but I think we just absorbed the shock of it,” said head writer/producer Mark McKinney, perhaps better known as one-fifth of the legendary Kids in the Hall comedy troupe. “We realized we had created this great show about a completely authentic family and this was a really sad but completely authentic experience that people could relate to so (continuing) seemed like an obvious thing.” Despite the difficult decision to persevere with a third season (which premieres this Sunday on HBO Canada), the experience of finding a way around a set that didn’t include Chaykin’s magnificent personality was an adjustment.

So(u)n(d)s of anarchy



Katey Sagal’s music career gets a boost from hit show’s soundtrack Somebody get Katey Sagal a record deal — no really. Although she’s happy with her day job on the successful F/X series Sons of Anarchy, in her heart, she’s a singer — and she gets a chance to show it as part of a new collection of songs from the show’s first four seasons. “I love being an actor, but there’s something about playing music that’s a gift,” the 57-year-old Sagal admits. In the past, Sagal recorded on Elektra and Casablanca Records. But times have changed in the music business for her, and she paid to record her last album.

Love don’t cost a thing, just $40,000 a month J-Lo paying her latest boytoy $10,000 a week to ensure he wears the pants




It pays to be Jennifer Lopez’s boy toy. Star magazine reports that Lopez is paying her former back-up dancer Casper Smart $10,000 a week so he can pretend like he has the funds to date her high-profile self (it’s like crazy Britney Spears all over again). A source tells the mag, “She hated having to whip out her credit card every time they go to dinner. Jen figured it’s easier to give Casper a weekly stipend, and she thought $10,000 was a nice round number. Jen doesn’t want to go over the top, showering Casper with too much, but she also wants him to up his game. Jen is hoping Casper won’t think twice about buying presents for her kids or whisking her off for a surprise weekend getaway.” Ha. No. $40,000 a

A New Year brings many things. None of which are more thrilling than those post-holiday bills dropped off by your friendly postman. While coming to grips with how much you spent making your Christmas merry may be enough to drive you to drink, finding a bottle of something decent you can pay for with the change found between your couch cushions may seem unlikely. Though larger format sizes offer good value, many are blended, non-vintage wines with European sounding names and lackluster taste. That makes a drinkable, inexpensive vintage wine in a 1,500 millilitre bottle one of the Holy Grails of the booze business. Low labour costs and a predictable climate make those from Chile consistent and quaffable. The 2010 Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot (1,500 ml, $14.95 - $20.49) — made by mega producer Concha y Toro — is a light mix of bright acidity, super soft tannins and fresh berry flavours. Try this red with tomato-based pasta sauces and grilled meats. PRICES REFLECT

Sort of open: DonDon Izakaya

Now open: Community 54

Ah, that favourite of Toronto’s ground beef crazy community, Burger’s Priest, has opened a second location uptown at Yonge and Lawrence (3397 Yonge St.).

We’ve all been waiting for it, and now it has finally opened... sort of. DonDon Izakaya (130 Dundas St. W.) is open right now from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., with limited seating, but within the next week will be running full-tilt. This Japanese tapas resto — Guu-style, if you will — brings T.O.’s love of the Izakaya to the Dundas and Bay neighbourhood.

The second location of this New York boutique just opened in Toronto at 1275 Queen St. W. A hub for creative nostalgia, the store is a destination for curators of unique collectibles and clothing that harkens back to the spirit of the Studio 54 era. Local artists are heavily featured here, along with products ranging from vintage streetwear to classic arcade games.

Back with a vengeance Kessel returns to all-star game but his 48 points make him unlikely to be picked last again CLAUS ANDERSEN/GETTY IMAGES

Phil Kessel is heading back to the NHL all-star game and it’s hard to imagine he’ll have to wait until the end of the draft before hearing his name called this time. The Toronto Maple Leafs forward was among the final 36 players added to the event by the league’s hockey operations department Thursday, joining Maple Leafs teammates Joffrey Lupul and Dion Phaneuf for the Jan. 29 game at Scotiabank Place. Kessel’s participation in last year’s all-star weekend is best remembered for him becoming the last selection in the inaugural draft — a somewhat embarrassing moment that included Capitals star Alex Ovechkin chuckling and snapping a photo of Kessel sitting alone waiting to be picked. “Hopefully he’s not selected last two years in a row,” Lupul said Thursday. “But he got a car for it, so I mean it’s not all bad, right?” Besides, no one is laughing now. Kessel has been among the league’s most prolific players all season and entered play Thursday sitting second overall in scoring with 48 points, two behind Vancouver Canucks forward Henrik Sedin, another newly minted all-star. In fact, the top nine scorers so far will all be in atten-

dance, a list that includes Philadelphia’s Claude Giroux, Tampa Bay’s Steven Stamkos, Vancouver’s Daniel Sedin, Chicago’s Marian Hossa, Pittsburgh’s Evgeni Malkin and Ottawa’s Jason Spezza, along with Henrik Sedin, Kessel and Lupul. The other attendees include names like Ovechkin, Jonathan Toews, Corey Perry, Zdeno Chara, Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Lundqvist — making it a who’s-who gathering of NHL players. “I think it means a lot (to be there),” said Henrik Sedin. “It’s one of those things I think you’re going

to look back at when you’re done playing (and feel proud) that you’ve been to one or a few of those. That’s something you can tell your grandkids.” The draft format will remain for this year’s event but is expected to include a few changes — with one source indicating a defenceman could be left until the end. As the last man standing a year ago, Kessel received $20,000 US for charity and a Honda CR-Z hybrid. “I’ve still got it,” he said Thursday. A similar bounty is expected to soften the blow

for the final player selected at the all-star draft in Ottawa. The NHL Players’ Association worked in close consultation with league executive Rob Blake on the organization of the event and players were overwhelmingly in favour of keeping a last man standing. The captains and assistants in charge of selecting the all-star teams will be announced next week. One of them is expected to be Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson, who fans previously voted into the game along with team-

mates Erik Karlsson, Milan Michalek and Spezza. The Senators are the best represented team. The Canucks, Leafs, Bruins, Rangers and Blackhawks all have three players participating in the all-star game. The Sedin twins are joined by Canucks teammate Alexander Edler while Calgary will be represented by Jarome Iginla, another potential choice to captain one of the all-star teams. Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price and Winnipeg Jets defenceman Dustin Byfuglien will also participate. THE CANADIAN PRESS

What’s behind Bargnani’s breakthrough? The big wonder is how Andrea Bargnani has been able to do so much so far in this NBA season while running around the court with that lightbulb finally shining over his head. Yes, after six seasons of little more than maddening inconsistency — flashes of excellence followed long stretches of infuriating lethargy — Bargnani seems to finally get it. He is engaged at both ends of the floor, he rebounds in traffic, he is animated and excellent and one of the premier scorers in the entire league.


WEEKEND, JANUARY 13-15, 2012

“Andrea for me, and I’ve been telling all my coaching friends around the league, is playing like an all-star on both ends of the floor,” is the oft-stated belief of Raptors coach Dwane Casey and when Casey says that, eyebrows aren’t necessarily raised in disbelief. But why now? Why, in his sixth season, is the seven-foot Roman finally showing the consistent determination and varied skills that led Raptors president and general manager Bryan Colangelo to make him the

“I think he’s getting the respect of league now. I don’t know if last year he had it, but I think he’s getting it.” RAPTORS COACH DWANE CASEY

first-overall pick in the 2006 draft, the first time a European-born player had achieved such exalted status? Talk to coaches, teammates and close observers of the team and it comes down to two salient points. He’s finally been challenged to perform on the defensive end or risk being made an afterthought —

“true accountability” is the phrase most commonly heard — and Bargnani is simply a very good basketball player who took longer than some had expected to understand the nuances of the game. “He’s matured, he knows this is his team, he’s one of the stars of our team ... he’s growing up,” says his coach. “You’re watching a guy grow up

from a young player into a man and I think his confidence and his game is going higher and higher.” A strained calf has put a crimp into Bargnani’s blistering start to the reduced NBA season. He left Wednesday’s loss to the Sacramento Kings in the second half and his availability for Friday’s home game against Indiana is in doubt. Officially, he’s listed as day-to-day but with the Raptors in recent years, day-to-day is a catchall for everything from major surgery to a cold. TORSTAR NEWS SERVICE

The Maple Leafs (2215-5) head to Buffalo (18-19-5) after shutting out the Sabres 2-0 in Toronto on Tuesday. Buffalo has scored 11 goals in its last seven games. Thomas Vanek and Derek Roy (upperbody) both missed Tuesday’s game and are day-to-day. Drew Stafford had six shots on Tuesday, but failed to score. Stafford has one goal in his last 11 games.

Young 49ers ‘really hungry’ But most key San Francisco players untested ahead of matchup with battle-hardened Saints CHRISTIAN PETERSEN/GETTY IMAGES FILE

Centre Jonathan Goodwin has been going around San Francisco’s locker-room offering bits of veteran insight here and there. Playoff knowledge, New Orleans Saints knowledge. The NFC West champion 49ers have eight players who have been to the postseason previously. The Saints? A whopping 39 before their victory over Detroit last weekend. “I think some of the guys who didn’t get a chance to go to the playoffs in the past, they’re hungry,” 49ers tight end Vernon Davis said. “They’re really hungry. I don’t know what it’s going to be like, I just know I’m playing in the playoffs.” That’s where Goodwin comes in. Among the key off-sea-

“So much of the playoffs is the hot team and the team that’s peaking and continuing to get better here at the end of the season. That’s really our focus, is just to continue to get better.” 49ERS QUARTERBACK ALEX SMITH

son acquisitions for San Francisco, Goodwin is one of those playoff-tested guys (13-3). He won a Super Bowl ring with the Saints two years ago. “Should be pretty fun,” Goodwin said. “Hopefully my experiences seeing that defence a lot during training camp and sometimes during the season will be valuable.” When the 49ers suit up Saturday afternoon against Drew Brees and the highpowered Saints (14-3), quarterback and 2005 No. 1 draft pick Alex Smith will

be just one of many San Francisco regulars making playoff debuts on the NFL’s big stage. Of the 49ers who have been to the post-season before, only long snapper Brian Jennings remains from the 49ers’ 2002 season when they rallied past the New York Giants 39-38 in their NFC wild-card game. What a difference from the Saints, with almost a full roster of men who have played such big games before this year. The 49ers are considered an underdog despite playing at home in

sold-out Candlestick Park. San Francisco earned the NFC’s No. 2 seed over the Saints, who did their share of scoreboard watching late in the season in hopes of stealing the second spot and a first-round bye. Brees will be up against a stingy San Francisco defence that allowed only three rushing touchdowns and all in the final two games — and the Niners had 38 takeaways to only 10 turnovers for a plus-28 turnover differential. That matched the second-best mark in NFL history.

Now the 49ers face the daunting task of trying to slow a Saints offence that produced a playoff-record 626 yards in last week’s 4528 win over the Lions. Brees threw for 466 yards and completed 33 of 43 passes — and no doubt will provide the toughest test yet for San Francisco’s talented defence. The 49ers have lost the last six meetings with New Orleans. But Brees knows playoff experience won’t mean much. “To be honest with you, each team is different,” Brees said. “I would say San Francisco is a 13-win team just like we’re a 13-win team and we’ve all played in a lot of big games this year and we’ve all had to win down the stretch.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Bailey vs. Brady six years later

Broncos looking to upset Patriots in playoffs again

Cornerback Champ Bailey of the Broncos, right, intercepts a pass in front of wide receiver Troy Brown of the Patriots in the last post-season meeting between the two teams in January 2006.

The last time the Broncos and New England Patriots met in the playoffs, Champ Bailey returned an interception 100 yards, sparking a big Denver win and handing Tom Brady his first postseason defeat after 10 wins and three titles. Six years later, they meet again on Saturday, both men longer in the tooth but just as transcendent. At age 33, Bailey has helped the Broncos (9-8) reach the playoffs for the first time in six seasons. “He’s really a playmaker for them,” Brady said. “He’s a great leader. He’s everything you look for in a football player.” That’s pretty much what Bailey said about Brady.


Champ Bailey and the Broncos will be out for their seventh win in 10 tries against Tom Brady. No other team has had that much success against the twotime MVP. “He’s smart, accurate, he has all the tools,” Bailey said. “He’s tough, confident. Everything you want in a player.” At age 34, Brady threw 39 touchdown passes, the second-best total of his great career, and led the Pats (13-3) to the top of the AFC by winning his last

eight starts, including a blowout at Denver on Dec. 18. The heavily favoured Patriots are 8-2 in home playoff games under Brady, whose 14-5 post-season record is tied with Terry Bradshaw for the best mark in league history. The Broncos captain readily acknowledges he doesn’t particularly enjoy facing Brady. “It’s more frustrating when you’re out there because he’s so good. He’s one of the best ever,” Bailey said. “I think a lot of people want to find out who’s going to be the next guy, but he always reminds everybody he’s still the best.” THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Silvaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s MLS education underway Reds select All-American mid-fielder in SuperDraft

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I bring a little bit of everything to the team,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says Silva


Luis Silva has made a pledge. Though the offensivelygifted mid-fielder has designs on a professional soccer career, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also just two courses shy of his college degree. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to finish school eventually,â&#x20AC;? the 23year-old from Los Angeles said after Toronto FC took him fourth overall Thursday in the MLS SuperDraft. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I promised my mom I would,â&#x20AC;? said the five-foot11, 163-pounder.

TFC pick Luis Silva at the MLS SuperDraft in Kansas City, Mo., on Thursday.

But with training camp less than two weeks away and expectations from TFC that he will get minutes on the first team as a rookie, Silva will need to talk to his professors at the University of California Santa Barbara about completing his Spanish major with an education minor online. As a senior last season, Silva had 17 goals and 10 assists in 24 games for UCSB, which lost in the third round of the NCAA playdowns. He became the

schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first soccer player selected as a first-team AllAmerican. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just ready for wherever the coach wants to play me,â&#x20AC;? Silva said from the draft in Kansas City. The Reds used their other pick, which was acquired in the deal that sent Dwayne De Rosario to the New York Red Bulls, to take Aaron Maund, a defender out of the University of Notre Dame, 12th overall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both players were on our list and we were very

of the 21-year-old Maund, a six-foot-one, 185-pound native of Dorchester, Mass. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Also, on his feet, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very good and in this league ... that can make the difference.â&#x20AC;? TFC opens training camp in Toronto on Jan. 23. The clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first two matches â&#x20AC;&#x201D; March 7 at Rogers Centre and a week later in California â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are against the MLS Cup champion L.A.

happy to get them,â&#x20AC;? Aron Winter, TFCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head coach and technical director, said. Winter had said prior to the draft that the Reds would take the best players available rather than target a particular position. But with Silva able to play an attacking mid-field or wing position and Maund best suited to the left side of central defence, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear both have a chance to crack the lineup in 2012. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even with his size, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very flexible,â&#x20AC;?

Baseball owners stick with Bud Commissioner Selig’s contract extended through the 2014 season

Baseball commissioner Bud Selig says he couldn’t resist the pleas of team owners for him to stay on the job. His wife Sue has said all along there was no way her husband would walk away from the game. In the end, she was right.

Owners voted 29-1 on Thursday to give Selig a two-year contract extension through the 2014 season. Selig has held the position since 1992, first as interim commissioner and then as commissioner since 1998. He will turn 80 in July

2014. If he stays until September 2016, he would surpass Kenesaw Mountain Landis (1920-44) as the longestserving baseball commissioner. “I’ve often said, and I believe this, for me personally

He has held top baseball job since 1992

in my life there’s no higher honour than being the commissioner of baseball,” Selig said. Selig’s contract had been due to expire this Dec. 31 and he had talked of doing some teaching after leaving the job. But he said he be-

gan hearing lately from owners who wanted him to stay on. “I started hearing a couple of weeks ago that there was a groundswell movement to do this,” he said. “‘You can’t leave now.’ I’d hear from various owners.”

He said he reached the decision after thinking about it over the holidays, although he acknowledged his wife had been right when she said all along that he wouldn’t be stepping down this year. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
