A star athlete, after the constant hits to the head. She Miyazaki led the Huskies to a second-


place finish in the CIS championships in 2011 and a sixth-place finish in 2012. After that, she transitioned into football, where she shone as a defensive back with the Valkyries, helping them during undefeated runs to the 2011 and 2012 Western Women’s Canadian Football League championships. Miyazaki also was picked as one of 92 players to attend the training camp for Team Canada. Those selected at the camp will represent Canada at the 2013 women’s world tackle football championships in New Brunswick. “That’s definitely what hurt the most, and what I cried over the most. I had debated not playing football last summer, but then there was the whole Team Canada thing,” said Miyazaki. “When I found out about Team Canada, that’s what my whole summer was geared toward. I wanted to make it to that camp and make that team for this summer. It bummed me out when I knew I couldn’t play at the first camp

and I thought that dream was over. Then, I was invited to the second camp, and I was still wasn’t quite better by then. It sucks because it feels like you’re giving up on a dream, but at the same time you’re like ‘This is real life. I have a lot of other things.’ As cool as it would be, it’s life or death.” Sometimes it is death. Last week, 17year-old Rowan Stringer, a female rugby player in Ottawa, died after receiving a severe head injury in a game. Miyazaki says that lack of awareness is one of the biggest issues for young athletes, parents and coaches in cases like this. “Athletes, they just want to play. The kids I coach, they always want to play and unless you tell them no, they’re going to keep going,” said Miyazaki. “Now, looking back at it, I think about how dumb it is, but in the heat of the moment you don’t think about it.” (Continued on page 4)

Aunt Cam is always here for TL

ear Aunt Cam, Now that the weather is warmer, we are all out in our yards. Please provide a list of socially acceptable small talk that will come in handy when your annoying neighbors approach. TL

At my home, my wife does both the back and front, so I can watch sports on TV. Every now and then I pop out of the family room to bag a dog turd or fill a bird feeder. I try to make it a habit to have a drink while she barbecues. (Note: I have learned not to tell her the chicken was dry.) Dear Aunt Cam, How long do these hockey playoff thingies last? My husband is starting to gather dust, and I’m missing all the best episodes of Toddlers & Tiaras and Dancing with the Stars. TL

person down the street has his house decorated in the colours of the Boston Bruins. Everyone in the neighborhood loves the house. I am a Toronto Maple Leafs fan and want to decorate my house in Maple Leaf white and blue. And yet I don’t want to upset the neighbourhood. What would you recommend? RB

Dear TL, First of all, let’s make something clear. I like my neighbours. And you, on the other hand, are a snob, TL. Neighbours tend to lurk in front yards ready Dear TL, Editor to pounce on weak people You are a selfish, selfish like you. On our street person, TL. – and I like each of these people more My wife and I have found a than you can imagine – we have talkers, compromise. I put on a tiara and sit in walkers and The Shirtless Guy. (Some my boxers – did you think I was briefs of us secretly wish it was The Shirtless guy? – while watching hockey. Woman.) Derek Hough drops by every Monday night and dances my wife’s little feet If I were you (and thank goodness I off. The only things I say are: “Derek, am not), I would do activities at times can you grab me a beer? Derek, put your when your neighbours are least likely shirt on. And, Derek, turn down that to be outside. For example, cut your friggin’ music, there’s a friggin’ hockey lawn at 1 a.m. If you don’t want the neighbours to come out, you will have to game on.’’ You should try it, TL.

Dear RB, Who are you? Clearly, you haven’t read the rules for this column. This is an exclusive exchange between TL and me. Because you are new to the city, I will let it go this time. Because you are a Toronto Maple Leafs fan, I’m thinking reading isn’t one of your strong suits. I’ve told a number of people I felt badly when the Leafs collapsed in the final minutes against Boston. Actually, I was the guy driving down Eighth Street with my horn a honking, much like I do when the Chicago Cubs win a World Series. I think you made a horrible choice moving into the suburbs. You must be mortgaged to the hilt. It has been my experience that Leafs fans have trouble finding employment. To ease your pain, I am going to share a story with you. Every family has its black sheep, right? I have a cousin who is both an architect and a Leafs fan. Everything he builds topples over in the spring. He is now a squatter, living near Kingman, Arizona. The same fate awaits you, dude. You won’t have to travel to the United States to squat. Go to Regina.

SASKATOONEXPRESS - May 20-26, 2013 - Page 3


s Daryl Lubiniecki watches the drama of this year’s Memorial Cup junior hockey tournament, he can’t be blamed if he occasionally has flashbacks to 1988-89, when his Saskatoon Blades reached the national final. It was the one that could have been Saskatoon’s only cup triumph in history, but it was one that slipped away. The Blades took a 3-2 lead into the third period of the championship game against Swift Current, but the Broncos tied the score early in the third and notched the winning goal 3:25 into overtime. Lubiniecki was the architect of the team, which had come close in two previous seasons, losing both times to the Medicine Hat Tigers, winners of the Memorial Cup both years. “We knew in March, 1988, that we had won the bid, a decision partly based on the fact we were playing in a new building — Saskatchewan Place,” says Lubiniecki, who was the Blade coach from 1981 to 1984 and its general manager until 1997. “We had built a quality hockey team. Three things happened that we never counted on. Tim Cheveldae, our goalie, was drafted by the Detroit Red Wings and we had been promised he’d be sent back to Saskatoon if he didn’t make the Red Wings. He went to minor pro in Adirondack. Curtis Leschyshyn, our best defenceman, was drafted by Quebec and he made the Nordiques. Tony Twist was our tough guy at the time, when toughness was probably more important than it is today, and he signed with St. Louis and played that year in Peoria.” Lubiniecki, an active trader in his days, went looking. He acquired Ken Sutton, who brought the defensive skills, Darwin McPherson, who brought the toughness, and it wasn’t until right after Christmas that he landed goalie Mike Greenlay from Lake Superior State. The deck was relatively well-stacked up front with the likes of Scott Scissons, Kevin Kaminski, Kory Kocur, Colin Bauer, Tracy Katelnikoff, David Struch and Jason Christie. With Marcel Comeau coaching, the team did well in the regular season. “Our guys had a lot of character,” says Lubiniecki. “Marcel was a coach who liked to post slogans in the dressing room. One of them was: ‘If you want to leave footprints in the sand, wear work boots.’ That’s one that said the most about us.” With a first round bye in the playoffs, Lubiniecki and his assistant, Dennis Beyak, went on some scouting missions, first to Medicine Hat and then to Prince Albert. “I was a heavy smoker, almost three packs a day. Dennis and I were driving through Duck Lake and I started to feel pain in my chest. I asked Dennis to drive. We got to the rink In Prince Albert, they took me to the dressing room and gave me oxygen. I didn’t have a heart attack, but it seemed like it was everything but a heart attack. I went into the Royal University Hospital and I missed our first series, but I go out in time to see us play Swift Current.” Swift Current won that series. Saskatoon was going into the Memorial Cup as the host team. Swift Current then beat Portland to earn its ticket to the tournament. Saskatoon beat Laval, the Quebec champions, 5-3.

They lost to Peterborough 3-2 in the second game. They gave up three early goals to Swift Current and then rallied to win 5-4 in their round-robin meeting. And then it was showdown time, with the Broncos again as their rivals. Saskatoon trailed 2-0 after the first period, then came back in the second with goals by Scissons, a shorthanded goal by Katelnikoff and then one by Kocur, 17 seconds before the buzzer. That was the Blades’ last goal of the game. “That last game, I still see it in slow-motion replays. We had our chances in the third period, including a twoman break where we missed the net. In overtime, we had the first five shots and then a turnover set up their winning goal, a tip-in by Tim Tisdale.”

“Marcel was a coach who liked to post slogans in the dressing room. One of them was: ‘If you want to leave footprints in the sand, wear work boots.’ ” Lubiniecki was born in Sturgis and played junior with Prince Albert Mintos, senior with the Saskatoon Quakers and semi-pro with Fort Wayne in the International League and Knoxville in the Eastern League. He began coaching with Saskatoon Olympics, a Blades junior farm team, and joined the Blades in the fall of 1981. One of his best teams was in the spring of 1983, when the Blades lost an Eastern Division playoff to Lethbridge. The team finished first and had five players — Perry Ganchar, Ross Lambert, Roger Kortko, Lane Lambert and Todd Strueby — that had 100 points or better. “We lost three of our top players through injuries just before and during the playoffs. Funny thing is that I tried

to trade for a goalie, either Mike Vernon from Calgary or Ken Wregget from Lethbridge during the season. Wregget came back to beat us with a Lethbridge team which also had two Sutter brothers in the lineup.” Lubiniecki always had a knack for making good trades. When Rocky Trottier wouldn’t report one season, he made a six-player trade with Billings that brought Dave Brown and Dave Chartier to Saskatoon. “I think of some players who really brought some character and skills to our team. We gave Chris McAllister a chance, when others wouldn’t, and he played professional 10 or 12 years. We gave Kelly Chase a chance when he was cut by Moose Jaw and he became pro for long time. We got Shaun Van Allen when he was cut by Swift Current and what a good player he became.” Lubiniecki chuckles about “once trading Randy Smith to Calgary and then the next year, I got him back. Randy and his linemate, Larry DePalma, just tore up the league.” Quite probably his favourite player was Wendel Clark, “who could shoot, skate and you didn’t have to tell him how hard he had to work. He just ate up so many minutes on the ice. And when Wendel hit you, it was like he was swinging all the way from Kelvington.” Lubiniecki and the Blades parted ways in 1997. “We looked around and wondered if our team wasn’t getting a little old. We decided to go younger. Donn Clark was our coach at the time and it seemed like he could see what was coming. He spoke up and warned against going too young and maybe he’d pay the price. We ran into a rash of injuries and Donn and I lost our jobs. I was disappointed because everyone knows I bled blue.” Lubiniecki then joined Rick Brodsky in Prince George almost immediately as general manager, stayed until 2004, scouted for two years and then stepped away.

Bridges, roads lines and leaves


uestion: How did you feel about getting approval for both the North Parkway and Traffic bridges at the same executive committee meeting? Mayor Atchison: It was a phenomenal day. We need to have the Parkway Bridge and connecting roadways now. When you think into the future, more than 100,000 people will be living in the northeast, along with (the nearby) Holmwood development area. We really need that bridge today. We have the Integrated Growth Plan for Saskatoon. That means we are planning for growth, our needs are growing, our neighborhoods are growing and we are Ask the planning for the future now, not later. Question: It will be six-lane bridge. Is that the right choice? Mayor Atchison: Yes. There was discussion about whether we need six lanes. If you look at Circle Drive North, the proof is in the pudding. We started with four lanes, then went to six lanes because of the growth. And the same would have happened with the Parkway. The other thing people need to understand about the Parkway is this is not a freeway. Some people might be under the impression this is going to be a 100-mph roadway. It’s not. It is an arterial road, kind of like College Drive east of Cumberland. It could have development along it. This parkway will make it easier to travel from the northeast to the northwest and help deal with the 100,000 people living in the community. Question: What are your thoughts on the Traffic Bridge, now that building a replica has been approved? Mayor Atchison: The Traffic Bridge is another key component to growth in our community. If we want to have 10 per cent of our population living and working in the city-centre area, we have to get people in and out. On top of that our other bridges need maintenance so lanes will be closed. The University Bridge is going to require a one- to two-year maintenance program, followed by the Broadway Bridge and followed by the Senator Sid Buckwold Bridge. We need to make sure people and traffic can move easily. The other thing that is really wonderful about the Traffic Bridge is the walkways are going to be about the same width as the walkway/ pedestrian bridge underneath Circle Drive North. You are going to have that on both sides. The City has spoken to (pedestrian and cyclist groups) and they think with that much room on each side, there is plenty of space for everyone to co-mingle. The other big thing is safety – getting emergency vehicles across the river. For example, on the old bridge, fire trucks couldn’t use it and ambulances were hard pressed to use it as well as transit. We are going to be able to use it for all those types of vehicles in the future. Question: When is the city planning to pay attention to the roads in the north industrial area? They are in embarrassingly poor condition and haven’t been cleaned in several years. There is a water main break yearly at First Avenue and Circle Drive. Mayor Atchison: There were two

breaks there. It broke once in the winter and then it broke again in a different place on the water main. It is one of those areas where we are going to have to use concrete to stabilize it. I think it is a lot to do with soil conditions. When people talk about clean streets, we do clean them. The problem we’ve run into in the past is a lot of the properties there are not hard surface. Consequently, it’s like Murphy’s Law. You clean it one day, it rains that night and the next day you have mud tracked back onto the streets. There is a new city policy now in all the new areas: when you build, you have to hard surface the areas. People complain about that being very expensive and I don’t deny that, but how do you Mayor accommodate the needs of both? (Note: Go to and click on “street sweeping.” There, you will find the interactive map to let you know when your neighbourhood will be swept. The map is updated weekly.) As for potholes, city crews are fixing arterial roads. On really bad sections, they go in with asphalt, lay it over the roadway, then blade it and pack it. (Note: If you want to report a pothole, phone 306-975-2476. You can go online to to report potholes and check paving and repair schedules.) Question: Recently a group of residents dumped leaves from their yards onto the street to protest the street sweeping program. What are your thoughts on this? Mayor: Every person in Saskatoon wants to have their street cleaned first. I am not sure there is anyone in the city who says, “Please, fix the pothole in front of my house last.” I am not sure anyone has said, “Please remove the snow in front of my house last.” Someone is first and someone is near the end. Here’s what we do. If you are first this year, you fall down the list next year. Eventually, you are at the bottom and then you move to the top. It’s a rotating list. No one is permanently last or permanently first. Question: Left-hand turn lanes have been added on First Avenue. What affect will they have on traffic? Mayor Atchison: I think city crews have done a wonderful job there accommodating the five-o’clock rush hour when you are south bound. People are making left-hand turns into other areas; you get the traffic lined up all the way down that left lane. What we have been able to do is narrow the lanes slightly, but allow enough room for vehicles to safely travel and we put in the left-turn lane going both directions. We have painted turn arrows onto the roadway, so we are trying to help out there too. There used to be a double line, so it was illegal to pull out of a parkade to go across one lane of traffic to turn left. Now, we have that centre lane that allows you to pull in and then safely move into the flow of traffic. (Send your questions for Mayor Atchison to editorial@ Please put “mayor’’ in the place line.)


Career ended before her time (Continued from page 1) “There’s something called ‘secondimpact syndrome.’ So if you get hit and you get a concussion— and this is very rare—but if you receive another blow and your head hasn’t fully healed, especially if you’re an adolescent, then you can die because there’s still so much swelling. That’s what happened in Ottawa. They’re saying she didn’t report any of her headaches or symptoms to her parents, but she had told some of her friends. There’s nothing they could really do in that case. It’s very sad.” Now Miyazaki hopes to raise this awareness through working with the Saskatchewan Brain Injury Association (SBIA). She is part of Take Brain Injury Out of Play, a campaign within the association that strives to educate young athletes about the dangers of head injuries. “We emphasize that if you’re going to respect your own brain, you’ve got to respect the brain of your opponents too. Part of that is playing by the rules,” said Miyazaki. “My job is to try and promote that program and go out and make people aware of concussions, because I think a lot of people don’t realize how big of an issue it is. They don’t take it as seriously as it needs to be taken because you can’t see it, right?”

“You look at someone and they look fine to you. If someone had a broken arm, you would never tell them to get back in the game. But if you look at someone and they just have a headache, people pressure them to get back in the game. This is something we need to stop as peers, coaches and parents.” Miyazaki knows her football days are likely over. It’s not a guarantee, but neither is life. “I decided not to play this year because it wasn’t worth it. Some days I still occasionally feel dizzy, which could be the concussions or my neck injury. It’s a hard thing; I know my parents don’t want me to play, and the thing is, they say once you’ve had one you’re so much more susceptible. That’s not good news for me.” “There are so many other things that I want to do in my life that to risk that and have to sit out for months again, just for one sport, isn’t really worth it to me.” June is National Brain Injury Awareness month and Miyazaki hopes that, with the added education and conversation about head injuries, athletes start to realize the importance of protecting their brains.

If he would have allowed me, he would have heard: “It’s been years since I had to do hard work.” I was assigned to a bed in one of the trailers. I hardly slept as I was worried about what I got myself into. Early in the morning I went outside to talk to the supervisor; I was planning to confess and continue to hitchhike. “I bet you’re wondering what machine you’ll be operating, eh?’’ he said. He then walked me over to a small frontend loader. “This should be fun,’’ I said to myself. I stayed there, doing basically simple tasks that needed to be done. Evenings were the best.

Not only had I met some real cool people and had a great time, I was also a part of a highway construction project. Every now and then I drive on that highway and wonder where they are building now. It felt good to be part of something more than just a project because it was a small part of building a nation. It also felt good to be able to hitchhike all over northern part of the provinces with a little extra cash.

Sask.-born singer/songwriter to introduce music from new CD

Ned Powers Saskatoon Express

Alexis Normand has taken a fresh, distinctive approach to bring her love of the Prairies to music audiences. Normand, a bilingual singer-songwriter, formed collaborated with Zoe Fortier, a visual artist, to capture the joy in a CD, Mirador, which has already gained significant attention in Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario. The CD gained her two nominations — best new artist, and best album in Western Canada — at the Gala des Prix Trille Or, considered to be akin to the Juno awards for francophone artists in Canada. Normand will introduce songs from Mirador, most in French, and will also blend some more of her folksy-jazzy approach to vocals in the Roots series at The Bassment on May 24 at 9 p.m. Originally from Saskatchewan, Normand pursued her musical education at the University of Ottawa, graduating in 2007, and then studied for a year at L’ecole nationale de la chanson. “I met Zoe in 2009 through the French community and we thought it would be cool if the two of us, as emerging artists, could share some creative ideas. We really wanted to develop our physical links to the Prairies. Sometimes we would go out together. Some songs are based on scenery, some based on topics of the day. Zoe’s art would inspire me. Or I might finish a song and then look for her creative input,” says Normand. She chose 10 songs for the CD, nine of which are in French. One is called Land of the Living Skies, which is a tale of the openness on the Prairies. The visual attachments are scenic strengths, but the two of them explored many ideas in the process, including the experience of playing bingo on 20th Street in Saskatoon. For many of the touring shows, Fortier’s graphic designs were projected onto screens on the stages. There won’t be any visuals on screen at The Bassment, but Normand will have some art on show and will distribute booklets with English translations

Chordsmen celebrate 40th in style


Sask.-born Alexis Normand will perform at The Bassment on May 24 (Photo Submitted) of the songs she chooses to sing in French. She will be accompanied by Gent Laird on bass and Christian Kongawi on drums. Don Griffith, artistic director of the Saskatoon Jazz Society, is catching Normand on the heels of a whirlwind-paced eight months. She and Fortier introduced the CD in Saskatchewan in the fall. Then Normand went east where she laughs “about my first red carpet experience at the Trille Or.” Then she came back to Saskatchewan to do a string of dates with Rosie and the Riveters, a Saskatoon vocal quartet specializing in

folk and gospel music with a 1940s flavour. Her partners on the Riveters’ project are Farideh, Mellisa Nygren and Kiera Dall’Osto They played two dates at The Bassment in mid-April. Normand also won Radio Canada Saskatchewan’s contest for singersongwriters a year ago, winning with Cet Horizon, which became the official theme song for the provincial year of the Fransaskois. She is now working on material, mixing the realms of jazz and folk, for her next recording project.

askatoon’s Chimo Chordsmen will celebrate their 40th anniversary with a performance at the Broadway Theatre on May 26 at 3 p.m. Celebrating is all well and good, according to Ken Stephenson, who’s been a member since the beginning, but as a champion of barbershop singing, Stephenson points to another happy sign. “One of our guest quartets will be the Sharpflats, who have been formed by Chimo’s assistant director Sean Mueller. The quartet consists of four University of Saskatchewan students. It is always encouraging when you see young people step up and get involved,” says Stephenson. No one knows better than Stephenson how difficult it is to recruit new members. “People think they have to be able to read music. All they have to do is carry a tune, learn to be part of a team, and there is much to be gained from the music and the sociability.” Also appearing on the program will be the Trademark Quartet, an award-winning combination from Calgary, and Northern Blend, a group of women singers from Prince Albert. The Chordsmen portion will be conducted by David Puls. For Stephenson, it’s another day on the stage. One of his most recent honours was induction into the Land of the Lakes Hall of Fame, a barbershopping organization which extends from Saskatoon through to Green Bay, Wisconsin.

High school students offered business course


he Edwards School of Business at the University of Saskatchewan will introduce a new credit course for high school students in the fall. The course is designed to give young people an understanding of the role of business in the world and of career potential in the field. To be offered through distance learning in the Sun West School Division in west central Saskatchewan, Introduction to Business will teach students “about the various roles and functions of business, and about the types of personal skills and qualities they need to succeed in business,” said Keith Willoughby, associate dean academic in Edwards. “They’ll not only learn to identify these skills and qualities in themselves but the course will also give them the chance to practice and refine those skills.” The course will be taught in nine modules with U of S professors and instructors presenting a series of online lectures, he explained. There will be hands-on activities and group projects, along with self-directed research in areas like the global marketplace, business ethics, entrepreneurship, human resource management, marketing, and finances and financial institutions. Using the entrepreneurship and small business module as an example, Willoughby explained students will interview local business owners and entrepreneurs to explore trends and experiences in business. What they find will then be compared to documented trends, challenging the high school students to think critically about what is shaping entrepreneurship and small business ownership today. “Our objective is to ensure that each student has the opportunity to acquire, practice and refine their skills and experiences in a way that will help them succeed in postsecondary education and future employment.” For more information, contact Willoughby at or 306-966-2128.

ear Susan, I am a single mom who has returned to college. Going to school & raising my son on my own has left me with limited funds to allow for any sort of personal “pampering.” I honestly can’t remember the last time I had a haircut! I’ll be entering the work force soon and I’m tired of looking like a rundown mom. I’d like a fresh, new look so that I look like a confident and collected “career woman.” My “T-shirt & jeans, no make-up and hair in a pony tail look” has got to go. I really need all the help I can get! - Sincerely Joelle We kept Joelle’s new look simple and quick. We cut and layered her hair giving her height at the crown and a little flip at the ends. When I colour draped Joelle I found that she was a cool summer. She looks best in soft pastel colours that are blue-based. Colour is such an important factor in choosing clothing for both men and women. Wrong colours can give your complexion a dull or sallow look. People will tend to notice the suit or dress before they notice your face when the colours are too strong or too pale for you. For a quick make-up routine Joelle used a mineral powder foundation and a soft mauve blush placed high on her cheekbones. Did you know that blush is the product most women misapply? Her beautiful green eyes were accented with a smoke eyeliner, black mascara and lavender eye shadows. To complete Joelle’s look I applied a soft pink lip gloss and voila – a new woman!

A lesson learned from Okeira


am an injury-prone person. My family knows this, my friends know this and my teammates know this. I don’t know if it’s a case of “wrong place, wrong time” or if I can credit this to clumsiness, but I do know that hospitals should give out frequent-flyer miles to people like me. Get two x-rays, third one’s on us! Last week, I was out running with friends when I noticed something was wrong with my right foot (Note: I am doing physio on my LEFT foot once a week for a different injury). We were squeezing in a few extra kilometres before the Saskatchewan Marathon this weekend. The pain wasn’t too serious, just a tightness I had never felt before. Within a couple of hours, I had trouble bearing any weight on it. Nurse mom to the rescue: She wrapped it in a tensor bandage and off I went to work. As timing would have it, this was no typical day at work. This was Exile Island Day. I was asked to help out the Children’s Wish Foundation on this exciting fundraising day, when corporate teams battle against each other in a series of challenges to support the foundation and their own wish child. I was paired with the Innovation Credit Union in North Battleford—The INNcredibles— and our wish child was Okeira Ellis, a young girl who spent the first 15 months of her life in hospital after she was diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis, a neurological disease that causes an inflammation across the spinal cord. After a morning of four-legged races, puzzles and mostly hobbling on my part, we were introduced to Okeira. She is confined to a wheelchair

and has a tracheotomy to assist her breathing, which means she can’t speak. Immediately, her mom, Dayle Ellis, explained this to us with a big smile and a hug for each tribe member. I looked around at several INNCredible team members; they were wiping away tears, smearing their superhero masks; it’s hard not to be truly affected by Okeira’s family and the positivity that emanated from them. Here I was, bitter because I had run myself into an injury and the doctor at RUH said I had to nix the marathon. I went home and cried, while my family rubbed my back and said they were sorry. Sorry for what? My healthy body and its ability to heal itself? In times like this, when perspective really is the key word. Okeira’s body will never heal, but her spirit is strong, and that’s something I could take a cue from. She paints, with a paintbrush between her teeth, she swims and she’s got an incredible bond with her family. She has already overcome odds that I cannot fathom facing at such a young age. The event was a huge success. Exile Island raised more than $125,000 for the Children’s Wish Foundation and for kids like Okeira. Okeira’s wish is to go to Disney World, and her family hopes they will be able to go by the end of this year. It all depends on her health and if she will be able to travel at that time. Thanks goes to Exile Island, the Children’s Wish Foundation and Okeira Ellis for teaching me a thing or two about courage and staying positive in the face of disappointment. Suddenly, my foot doesn’t seem like such a big problem anymore. I truly hope Okeira gets to Disney World this year and her family has the vacation they so truly deserve.

Wildlife habilitation nurtures the injured


Jan Shadick for the Saskatoon Express

ats, cars, dogs, power lines and windows are but a few of the numerous obstacles that wildlife will encounter as they migrate, raise their young and generally co-exist with humans. Wildlife rehabilitation is one way to balance the scales. Spring and summer are the busiest times of year for rehabilitators as this is when nature is waking up, and babies start arriving. Mothers are out and about seeking food for hungry young, which are peeping, whining, and growling. This is the time of year that most people encounter wildlife. Have you ever found a baby hare and wondered if it was OK? The short answer is “probably.” Like deer, hares leave their young alone to protect them, through being ‘invisible’ to predators. Unless they are bleeding, shivering and crying, they are likely just fine so leave them be. Ducks have taken to nesting in the city, which is an area quite safe from most predators, but not convenient for the ducklings to navigate the many dangers to reach water. They fall down storm drains, get stuck at curbs and are scattered by dogs. Sometimes they need a helping hand to make it to water with Mom. If you have a situation where mamma duck will have a long or complicated walk to water, call the Wildlife Hotline for advice about how to handle the situation. Living Sky Wildlife Rehabilitation in

Saskatoon receives many birds that are picked up by well-meaning folks who believe they are injured, such as fledgling birds who often spend a few days hopping around the yard, peeping loudly for the parents to come feed them. These little guys often look injured due to their clumsy attempts at getting airborne. They are just adolescents who have not perfected their flight techniques quite yet. If you encounter any injured or orphaned wild animal or bird you are concerned about, call the Wildlife Hotline at 306-242-7177. Volunteers with the provincial Wildlife Rehabilitation Society of Saskatchewan will answer your questions, and if the animal needs help, they may direct you to Living Sky Wildlife Rehabilitation in Saskatoon. Last year, Living Sky Wildlife Rehabilitation cared for 290 wild birds and 40 mammals. Following several weeks or months of care, most of these animals and birds were successfully re-introduced back into the wild. Funding for their food, medicine and upkeep comes primarily from donations. Let’s all help keep Saskatchewan wildlife Wild!

Driven by Quality for 20 Years

Daytona opens its first showhome in Saskatoon In less than a year since moving to Saskatoon, Daytona Homes has opened its first showhome and is holding a public grand opening event on May 26. The home, located at 326 Pichler Cres., is one of many that Daytona Homes is building in the Rosewood area. “We welcome everyone out to see our showhome; it truly is beautiful and the quality and craftsmanship is evident as soon as you walk in.” said Mike Newbury, general manager of Daytona Homes. “It is fully furnished and decorated and offers 2,188 sq. feet of living space.” The home at 326 Pichler Cres. is one of Daytona’s newest models, the Escalade B. This two storey home has three spacious bedrooms plus a bonus room, second floor laundry, and a luxurious master ensuite with a two way gas fireplace. The open concept main floor is bright with lots of windows and natural light. The kitchen and great room provide plenty of space to host large gatherings and a main floor den/ flex room is another functional room which is located beside the foyer. It has definitely been an exciting move for us and we are looking forward to becoming part of the Saskatoon community. We’re confident that our focus on value and commitment to quality and to our customers will show both in the homes we build and in the customer service we provide. We’re family owned and operated and are proudly celebrating our 20th year of business this year. Since opening in 1993 in Edmonton, Daytona Homes has expanded throughout Alberta and Saskatchewan, including St. Albert, Fort Saskatchewan,

Sherwood Park, Leduc, Camrose, Grande Prairie, Lethbridge, Regina and now Saskatoon. They specialize in single and multi-family designs, providing consumers with a wide variety of models and price points. “We are dedicated to our customers and from the moment you step in our showhome, we want you to feel comfortable. Our sales consultants take the time to get to know you so that you end up with a home you love that is suited to your lifestyle,” said Newbury. “We are with you every step of the way and have long standing relationships with our customers well after they have moved into their homes.” Home models in Rosewood range from the Tahoe II B, a 1,680 sq. ft home, to the Escalade B. This range is perfect for all types of buyers: first-time home buyers, families looking for some more room, or even those downsizing. “In addition, being a production builder means our buyers don’t have to wait 8 months or a year for a new home. We have a number of homes in Rosewood at different stages of construction and even have a few summer possessions available,” said Newbury. “Rosewood is a fantastic starting point for us and we will be looking at the possibility of expansion into new subdivisions later this year.” Daytona Homes welcomes you to visit its Rosewood Showhome Monday to Thursday from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays (as well as holidays) from noon to 5 p.m. The home is closed on Fridays.

Hardening off bedding plants something you ought to do


here are so many things in life that are on the ought-to-do list. We know we ought to eat more vegetables. We know we ought to floss our teeth. In the garden, we know we ought to harden off our bedding plants. One spring, I discovered how important it is to harden off greenhouse plants. I’d been a good gardener. I had faithfully moved my tender seedlings in and out of the house for 10 days. Finally, I was ready to plant. When I was done, the flowerbed looked amazing. But, I was a few plants short. Not a problem, I thought, so I picked up a few more plants. The little voice in my head said, “Leslie, you always tell people to harden off their plants. You need to practice what you preach.” I ignored that voice and took the plants straight from greenhouse to the flower bed. During the following weeks, I could see the difference between the plants that had been hardened off and the plants that were planted straight into the flowerbed. The hardened off plants were healthier and were starting to grow. The plants that weren’t hardened off languished peevishly. They didn’t look sickly, but they just weren’t growing as quickly or look as vigorous as the other plants. Plants that were hardened off had become strong enough to thrive. The plants comingExpress right outPlug of the greenhouse Fashion

Tomatoe plants ready to harden off (Photo by Joelle Tomlinson) needed to toughen up. The stress of the environmental change between the greenhouse conditions and my flowerbed set the plants back significantly. Hardening off is simple to do and takes not more than 10 days. Start by placing your plants outside for a few hours a day. Choose a spot that is sunny, but protected from the wind. Gradually increase the time the plants spend outside. Never let the plants dry out and don’t forget to bring them in at night. Most plants will benefit from five to 10 days of hardening off. After planting, listen carefully to the weather. If frost threatens, cover all tender plants with newspaper or blankets. Never use plastic. Hardening off, it’s one of those things, like flossing your teeth or eating your carrots, you ought to do.

A city of many treasures

St. Angelo and Ponte Sant’Angelo are picture-perfect places in Rome (Wiki Photo)


Doreen Kerby for the Saskatoon Express

ome is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Some 10 million people a year come to see the monuments, the ruins of the Roman Forum, the aqueducts, fountains, churches, palaces, catacombs and the Colosseum. Many visitors travel to Rome to see the Vatican, St. Peter’s Basilica, the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museums. In popularity, it is the third most visited city in the world, only surpassed by London and Paris.

Rome’s history spans more than 2,500 years, since its founding in 753 BC. Since the first century, it has been the seat of the papacy and Peter, one of Christ’s apostles, is considered by Catholics to be the first pope. The Great Fire that almost destroyed Rome in 64 A.D. was blamed on the Christians, with thousands suffering cruel deaths in the Colosseum under Nero’s reign. Peter was crucified under Nero, upside down at his request, feeling unworthy to be crucified in the same way as Jesus. St. Peter’s Basilica was built over his gravesite.


The most impressive and largest building of the Roman Empire is the Colosseum. It has fallen into ruin, but is still an imposing site, accommodating 55,000 people. The exterior was covered in marble and 160 life-size statues graced the arches on the upper floors. Below the ground were rooms with cages for wild animals that could be hoisted to the middle of the arena for fights to the death between animals and gladiators. The Colosseum is now undergoing its first restoration. The Italian shoemaker Tod’s is investing $38 million to ensure it lasts for another 2,000 years. Every visitor wants to see the Trevi Fountain. Built in 1762, it is the most famous fountain in Italy and one of the most beautiful cultural landmarks in Rome. Legend claims that if you throw a coin with your right hand over your left shoulder and it lands in the fountain, you will return. An estimated $4,000 is thrown into the fountain each day. The money is used for a supermarket to feed the poor. Another remarkable building is the Pantheon, commissioned by Marcus Agrippa in 27 A.D. The name means, “temple

Cutbacks in U.S.

consecrated to all gods” to make sure none were left out. The most remarkable part of the building is the dome, which was the largest in the world until 1436 when the cathedral in Florence was constructed. The tombs of the famous artist Raphael and several Italian kings are located here. Amazingly, the marble floor is the original, now 2,000 years old. The front of the building (portico) has 16 huge columns each weighing 60 tons, quarried in Egypt and transported to Rome by barge and ship. The Pantheon is so beautiful that it has been used as a model for temples and churches throughout the ages. Within the City of Rome, the Vatican is a sovereign state with a population of 800, making it the smallest internationally-recognized state in the world, both in population and size. It was established in 1929 by a treaty signed by Benito Mussolini on behalf of King Victor Emmanuel II of Italy. The King took the Vatican States and gave them back to Italy. To show his disapproval, Pope Pius IX excommunicated the king JW10873.E20 and refused to leave the Vatican, an action followed Jamesby subsequent popes — for a

span of 60 years. The Vatican controlled these states from 756 to 1870 when Italy was finally unified. One of the most beautiful and largest churches in the world is St. Peter’s Basilica, located west of the River Tiber. Its central dome dominates the skyline. The Basilica is approached via a huge square surrounded by impressive colonnades. The interior is lavishly decorated with marble, sculptures and gilding. A number of sculptures are considered outstanding works of art, such as Michelangelo’s Pieta. There are 13 Vatican museums housing the world’s finest masterpieces of art, painting and sculpture collected by Popes over the centuries. They are visited by 25,000 people a day so it is imperative to be on a guided tour that also reduces the time wasted standing in line. The most popular attraction is the Sistine Chapel for its architecture and paintings, largely attributed to Michelangelo. Allow an hour to view his stories from the Bible and marvel at the greatest achievement known to humans. (Doreen Kerby is a Saskatoon freelance writer.)

Chatty’s Indian Spices a business of distinction


Tammy Robert Saskatoon Express

ike so many entrepreneurs, Saskatoon’s Arati Chattopadhyay started her business on the basis of a really good idea. Pairing that idea with old-fashioned hard work and determination, she turned her dreams into a reality. Chattopadhyay started Chatty's Indian Spices in 1996 as a product line of pre-mixed, packaged and labelled spices used to prepare East Indian food. Chattopadhyay’s goal was to provide the blended spices to local, mainstream consumers so they could cook and enjoy East Indian food at home without having to buy the vast number of spices traditionally used to prepare it. “Some of my recipes called for as many as 30 different spices that needed to be used in a single dish,” Chattopadhyay explained in an earlier interview, posted on the company’s website. “It would have proved very difficult for the individual who had little experience with Indian food to manage to find and use that many spices. It seemed sensible that pre-packaged spices would present people with the opportunity to cook authentic Indian-style food fairly easily.” In 2003 Chattopadhyay was presented with the YWCA Saskatoon Women of Distinction Award for Entrepreneurship. Reflecting on that moment, she still beams with pride. “It was awesome — ­­ a really wonderful experience,” she said. “The Distinction Award gave me confidence, an understanding of all the things you can achieve. It was a great moment.” In the last 10 years, Chatty’s Indian Spices business has grown by leaps and bounds, in part thanks to the extraordinary growth in Saskatoon’s multicultural population, restaurants and exposure to new flavors and cultures. “We always wanted our product to be used by the mainstream population,” explained Chattopadhyay. “Our main target was always the general public, getting

them used to something they may not have experienced before. “This new chemistry in our province means people are learning about all different kinds of food,” she continued. “There are so many new restaurants and flavours to try. This impacts our clients, because they’re more willing to buy ethnic products. Yes, there is more competition, but at the same time, it has helped the market grow.” Known as Chatty to her friends, she is proud of the fact that that her blends of spices are high quality without MSG and no colours - just spices and herbs, with flavours like chicken curry, tandoori, and Calcutta curry. The YWCA Women of Distinction Award wasn’t Chattopadhyay’s first. Chatty's Indian Spices was named Entrepreneur of the Year in 1998, and has won an award for the Best New Food Product in Western Canada. Her Mango Mustard Chutney was selected as “Best New Food Product” in 2000. In 2005 the company was a finalist for the ABEX Awards under the export category. Today, Chatty’s market focuses predominantly on Saskatchewan and Western Canada, but continues to grow rapidly, with a loyal customer base. “We have a good brand, people have really come to know us. There is a face to the name.” As for advice for today’s upcoming entrepreneurial women of distinction, Chattopadhyay keeps it simple: “Always have faith in yourself. Keep your dream alive and work hard for it. You’ll get there.”

This is a healthier version of a breakfast trifle we have been making for years. In our previous trifle, we used pancakes and sweetened whipped cream. By substituting whole-grain muffins for the pancakes, yogurt for cream, and maple syrup for sugar, you are getting the same decadent breakfast taste, but making healthier food choices. This recipe is from Breast Friends Inspire Health cookbook. Please visit our website at

Tip of the Week

There are many things to consider in a home purchase. Since it is largely an emotional decision, it is hard to step out of the process and be objective regarding all of the costs and considerations that go into purchasing a home. An assistant buyer, such as an experienced friend, family member or ideally a licensed REALTOR® can take away much of that stress. – Jason Yochim, executive officer, Saskatoon Region Association of REALTORS®.

Buick might have saved its own skin with the Enclave, and also carved out its future.

also brags that its three-abreast third row offers more legroom and greater cargo space than any of its major competitors and access to both by way of a sliding second-row seat is among the easiest. Getting under way involves the usual 3.6-litre V6 that puts out 288 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. The six-speed automatic transmission has had its electronic shift mapping updated for smoother operation. The engine’s output is decent, but it needs all of its horses to propel the Enclave’s 2,270-kilogram curb weight with any authority and to tow up to 2.045 kilograms of trailer weight. Also altered is the Enclave’s suspension that gets new shocks and springs designed for improved ride and better control over bumps. Along with its Chevrolet and GMC relations, the Enclave arrives standard with a unique front-centre airbag. This inflatable safety device, which deploys from the right-hand side of the driver’s seatback, protects the upper body (head and thorax) regions of both frontseat passengers in the event of a sideimpact collision. It will remain extended for a longer period of time, compared to the front and side airbags, in the event of a secondary impact or rollover. For all-weather driving conditions,

What you should know

the Enclave can be equipped with all-wheel-drive (AWD) that constantly monitors road conditions and seamlessly directs torque to the tires with the most traction when slippage is detected. AWD isn’t too expensive an option and only slightly increases fuel consumption (13.0 l/100 km in the city and 8.6 highway, versus 12.7/8.4 for front-wheel-drive models). Being luxury-focused, the base $43,100 Enclave Convenience model arrives loaded up with tri-zone climate control, backup camera, eight-waypowered driver’s seat and two-waypowered passenger seat and a power liftgate. Stepping up to the Leather model adds, of course, perforated leather seats, eight-way power-adjustable and heated front chairs and backup/crosstraffic warning, while the top-level Premium has heated and cooled front seats, 10-speaker Bose sound package and articulating headlights. About the only things to tack on to the Premium are 20-inch wheels (19-inchers are standard) and a navigation system. Clearly the Enclave has withstood the test of time to become a worldclass wagon that has assisted in positioning Buick firmly in the upscale driver’s seat. Even in a world that’s getting noticeably smaller.

It’s one of the more popular luxury tall wagons around and one of the most advanced in terms of comfort, safety and fuel economy. Points • Styling makeover keeps Enclave looking good. • Given its heft, a bit more horsepower would have been a good thing. • Interior styling updated, but the thin, flat steering wheel is still there. • Suspension updates are subtle. • Look for the center airbag to proliferate to other models. • Great value in the world of luxury tall wagons.

ven with smaller vehicles popping up like ants at a picnic, the full-size Enclave wagon remains Buick’s best-selling North American model. And it’s likely to stay that way with the arrival of the improved 2013 edition. The Enclave was introduced for the 2008 model year and has proven a key pillar supporting Buick’s rebirth. It shares basic ingredients with the Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia, but a superior level of luxury content places it at the upper end of the affordability scale where it competes with the Acura MDX, Infiniti JX and even the Chevrolet Tahoe. That old-school body-on-frame sport utility vehicle closely approximates the Enclave in size, if not in attitude, but can’t touch it for fuel economy and roominess, or for the way it coddles and protects its passengers.

Despite the Orlando’s name, it’s not available in Orlando, or anywhere else in the United States for that matter.

Only in Canada, eh? Pity!


have a question. Do people, specifically Americans, have something against practical hatchbacks vehicles? The new Mercedes-Benz B-Class is a sweet looking ride. It’s a hatchback with a spunky 208-horsepower four-cylinder turbocharged engine. If you took the badging off it, however, you could easily mistake it for something else. Its profile is familiar, which might be one reason that the three-pointed star plopped in the middle of the grille is a whopping 18 centimetres across. Inside, it’s roomy and bathed in leather. The transmission is electronically engaged with a little stalk on the steering column. Up for forward, down for reverse and press a little button for park, but you don’t even have to do that. Turn the car off and it automatically goes into park. Cool. It has black wheels with a machined finish and with a dazzling show of illumination coming from the headlights, the B250 looks highly detailed and luxurious. There’s one little twist, though. Mercedes-Benz doesn’t think Americans will buy it, or that it will erode sales of higher priced Mercedes vehicles, so it won’t be offered the United States. Canada, yes. United States, no. The car, with a base price of $30,000 here in Canada, underscores the subtle differences between buyers in the two countries despite the obvious ties in so many other ways, whether it be cultural, economic, geographic or language based. Regardless of where you live, though, the B250 is a nice car. Anyone with eyeballs can see that. This type of market exclusion is actually more common than you might think. Ironically, the launch for the 2014 Kia Rondo, to be sold in Canada and not the United States, took place in Galveston, Tex. Why? The Kia folks quipped that the Rondo is a big deal and everything is, of course, bigger in Texas. Uh huh. Anyway, the wetweather testing was done in California and not Canada, and the winter testing was done in Minnesota. So, you would think this four-door hatch that seats up to seven people would be an easy match-up for U.S. buyers, but

not really. Apparently they like their Optima sedans and Sportage tall wagons too much to consider the Rondo, which is a sexy little number that’s a bit bigger than the Mercedes B250. It uses a peppy 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine in a ridiculously quiet-riding car that’s full of technology and style. What’s not to like? Then there’s the Chevrolet Orlando and the Trax. The Orlando, which is perhaps an odd name choice for a Canadian car that is not actually available in Orlando, Fla., is kind of a mini minivan, like the Mazda5, while the Trax shares its small tall-wagon platform with the new Buick Encore. Although General Motors might fear that the Trax would cannibalize sales of the Equinox in the United States, which are apparently quite strong, the general theme is that Canadians like hatchbacks more, possibly due to income differences between the two countries and/or higher gas prices than in the United States. But with about 250 vehicle choices in the United States, nearly identical to our choices here in Canada, I really don’t see a problem with adding four more good ones there that are this functional and thrifty. Conversely, there are a few vehicles available in the United States that Canadians can’t buy, such as the Hyundai Azera. If the Sonata is too small, the much more expensive rear-drive Genesis is the only choice. Maybe that’s why the Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 dominate the segment in Canada: they’re roomy cars with reasonable sticker prices. It’s truly puzzling, with logic that’s seemingly outweighed by market research, pie charts and corporate spin doctors. So, I put it to you, Canada, which of the four vehicles -- B250, Chevy Orlando, Chevy Trax or Kia Rondo -would you recommend to our American neighbours? Maybe the answer is none, but I think these cars are just too interesting for them to pass up.

Was it a sports car, or an econo-ride for two? Pontiac left bewildered fans to figure it out for themselves



w w w. w h ee l b a s e m e d i a . c o m

t was supposed to be a groundbreaking car for General Motors, a little two-seater that would put Pontiac in the spotlight and make buyers weak in the knees. On paper, it must have looked like a fantastic dream: build a sporty and inexpensive two-seat car for buyers who really wanted a Corvette but couldn’t afford the payments, the insurance and the gas. The Fiero was a car destined for greatness as the star of the Pontiac lineup, but not without confusing some buyers who wondered what it was and why it existed. In the end, even General Motors was wondering. The beginning was quite grand, however. The product of a tightly-knit group of engineers, the Fiero was actually conceived in the late 1970s to employ a slew of leading-edge firsts for Pontiac. One look at the car and it was obvious. The engine was in the back, polymer body panels were hung from a space frame . . . and there was only seating for two. Just as it did on paper, things looked good on the surface. But to get the corporation’s blessing, its creators positioned the Fiero as a high-volume (at least 100,000 in yearly sales) technologically advanced commuter car that would not only be fun to drive, but get 50 mpg on the highway. Having contended with the fallout from two previous gasoline shortages — and with more uncertainty looming

— GM management was paying attention. Other than funding its unique construction needs, a strict cap was placed on development costs. To meet that challenge, the Fiero’s designers and engineers adapted as much hardware as possible from existing GM parts. The front suspension came from the Chevy Chevette sub-compact, while the rear suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, transmissions (four-speed manual and optional three-speed automatic) and the 92-horsepower 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine, were also borrowed from existing models. Even the outside mirrors were purloined from the Firebird. With all the necessary components in place, the final assembly process involved fitting the Fiero’s 13 separate plastic body panels to the space frame. This involved the use of a computeroperated “mill and drill” machine that positioned the 39 connecting pads used to anchor the parts. The finished product, which launched in late 1983 and listed for about $8,000 in its most basic form, was rather handsome, not unlike some exotic, out-of-reach European sports car. The Fiero’s rich-looking cockpit was equally advanced, with options such as a removable sunroof and formfitting bucket seats with speakers that were built into the headrests. The car’s good looks and attractive price point were one thing, but

1984-1988 P disappointment loomed whenever Fiero owners twisted the key. The underpowered fourcylinder provided tepid performance at best, the suspension and steering were (much) less than precise and the meagre stowage area, consisting of a narrow bin positioned behind the motor, was totally inadequate. The engines of some early examples even caught fire. To be fair, Pontiac avoided calling the Fiero a sports car and instead touted its thriftiness and value. The car-buying public didn’t seem to mind one way or the other, at least in the Fiero’s initial year. Pontiac dealers had received 30,000 orders before a single car had left the plant and most were being sold for the full sticker price or more. During its sophomore year in 1985, Pontiac added the $14,000 Fiero GT to the lineup, featuring its own nose and a 140-horsepower 2.8-litre V6. In 1986, the GT received fastback styling that seemed to hit the mark, but already there were troubling signs that interest in the plastic sports/commuter car was beginning to wane. Back in Detroit, the Fiero team knew all-toowell the vehicle’s weaknesses and at a cost of $30 million, introduced a number of significant suspension upgrades for 1988. It proved to be


rowsy driving has become a major hazard on the road. Every year drowsy drivers are a key factor in approximately 100,000 accidents, 40,000 injuries and 1,550 deaths in the United States, according to the US Department of Transportation. Studies have shown that on average, four hundred Canadians are killed and 2,100 injured annually because of sleepy drivers. In Saskatchewan, an average of 145 people are injured, and seven are killed each year in crashes involving driver fatigue. In fact, a Transport Canada study found that 20% of all automotive fatalities are caused by drowsy drivers. In 2013 Ford introduced a number of new technologies which will make a difference for sleepy drivers. Their ‘Lane Keeping System’ is a tri-fold package of technology consisting of a ‘Driver Alert System’, ‘Lane Keeping Alert’ and ‘Lane Keeping Aid’ - all designed to work together to help the driver avoid leaving his or her lane unintentionally. The ‘Driver Alert System’ is designed to help alert drowsy drivers by monitoring the vehicle’s movement compared to lane markings that are tracked by a camera mounted on the windshield. If the system detects a driving pattern consistent with a drowsy driver, a first-level chime will sound and a coffee cup warning will appear on the dashboard instrument cluster to recommend the driver take a break.

reset as soon as the driver stops and either opens the door or turns off the engine. The ‘Lane Keeping Alert’ is designed to help drivers avoid unintentional lane changes. When the system detects the vehicle drifting close to lane markings, it will alert the driver through a vibration in the steering wheel to naturally direct the driver’s attention to where it is required. The ‘Lane Keeping Aid’ takes this technology even further by providing steering torque to alert the driver of the need to steer back toward the center of the lane.The driver can override the Lane Keeping Aid at any time through counter steering, hard braking or fast accelerating, when the system recognizes that the driver has intentionally changed lanes. Dashed lines, like those on highways, will appear when the system is activated. Gray lines indicate the system is suppressed because the vehicle is traveling at less than the 40-mph activation speed, the road is poorly marked, or adverse environmental conditions do not allow the camera to determine road markings. Because drowsy driving is becoming such a larger factor in vehicle accidents and collisions, automakers like Ford Motor Company have focused significant effort and innovative research into technologies like the ‘Lane Keeping System’ that help to address drowsy driving. The results will equal lives saved in Saskatchewan, and across the country.

2013 SONIC


i e r o

too little too late. With sales well below the necessary six-figure mark (fewer than 20,000 were sold in 1987), General Motors ordered a halt to Fiero production. The debate rages to this day as to why the Fiero never seemed to deliver. Some blame GM for not allowing it to mature into a lowerpriced Corvette alternative, while others cite an off-kilter marketing plan that left both sports-car and economy-car camps confused about the automobile’s true mission. But the Fiero’s biggest problem was that it was caught in the crossfire between inexpensive, yet highly practical Japanese products and the onset of the minivan craze that began sweeping the nation in 1984, the same year Pontiac’s mid-engine fuel-saver was introduced. After fewer than a half-dozen years, the little car with so many “firsts” under its belt became yet another casualty of changing public tastes and, ultimately, corporate indifference.
