Colin James, a winner of six Juno Awards, will perform June 21 at the SaskTel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival (Photo Supplied)
Award-winning musician celebrates 25 years in the industry
olin James is celebrating his 25th another Juno as male vocalist of the year. year in the Canadian music industry. That’s the way his career has catapulted — He can’t think of a better place from guitar hero to pop vocalist to leading to enjoy a special party than at the SaskTel a revival of swing music, with four albums Saskatchewan Jazz Festival, recorded with the Little Big where he will be performing on Band. He has been constantly in the TD Mainstage, behind the search for something new and Delta Bessborough Hotel, on different. June 21 at 7 p.m. And it seems like just “I’ve been there no less than yesterday when James, a boy four times, all of which bring from Regina, was discovering fond memories,” James said. what he might become. “The last time, the weather “My parents were folk music was so beautiful for an outdoor fans and I’d go to concerts with concert; the atmosphere was them and even played a little terrific; Trombone Shorty was on mandolin,” he said. He knew the stage just before me.” he was in love with the guitar People James was a 1989 Junowhich he was playing by age 10. Award winner as a guitar He left school and home at 16, specialist for his self-titled debut album. On trying the music scene in Winnipeg and then the second, Sudden Stop in 1991, he won Montreal before discovering Vancouver as
the right destination for him. Saskatchewan was never far out of sight. “I came back to Saskatoon to play the guitar man in the 25th Street Theatre production of Laughing Jack Rivers. We performed at the Holiday Inn. It was the first time I had ever earned a weekly wage. Andy Tahn ran the company, Janet Wright was the director, Michael Taylor of Humphrey and The Dumptrucks was there. Janet was the quintessential director.” Years later, James was invited to appear in an episode of CTV’s Corner Gas. Wright was in the cast, but he didn’t do a scene with her. In front of the cameras, he was attending an audition for a band in Saskatchewan’s fictional Dog River. He wowed two members of the audition team, but Brent Butt, the other member, dismissed him, telling him they already had a guitar player. In his early band days, he was part of
a group, Hoodoo Men, which worked the Winnipeg-Regina-Saskatoon triangle on a regular basis. The band got gigs with George Thorogood and John Lee Hooker, and then came the big break with Stevie Ray Vaughan. “My surname is Munn and it was Stevie Ray who said I should drop my last name and just go with Colin James. He was afraid some public-address announcer would get it wrong and I’d be called Mud. In the shows I did with him, Stevie Ray invited me back for encores. He said, ‘I’m opening the doors for you. Walk through them.’ For what he did for me, Stevie Ray was the best ever.” As a rising artist with Virgin America Records, James got to share the opening slot when Keith Richards was touring through the United States.

165 pints given Now Dave Grainger wants you to donate in his name
Joelle Tomlinson Saskatoon Express
alking to Dave Grainger is like sitting in the front row of a performance. His voice crescendos when he gets excited, he shifts around with unbridled energy and he often uses his hands to emphasize a point. That is why it’s hard to believe that Grainger has just come off a 24-hour, seven-days-a-week treatment of chemotherapy. But Grainger, who was diagnosed with leukemia in April, has a story to tell and cancer be damned, he’s going to tell it. “Giving blood could very well have saved my life,” said Grainger, sitting comfortably on his couch at home during his recovery week. “I was going in to give my 166th consecutive pint of blood, and for the first time in my life since I was 20 years old, I got rejected.” Rewind to 1975. Grainger, then 20, was a naval officer in Victoria, B.C., and was just issued a bet to go down to the local blood clinic and donate a pint. He, as well as another half-dozen officers, accepted the challenge. “I remember we were standing in line, getting ready to do our screening and we had one great, big athletic guy and he just started turning white at the thought of having to be stuck with a needle,” Grainger said with a chuckle. “It was funny. Anyhow, we all gave blood that evening and it worked well for me and I thought, ‘Hey, I’m going to do this.’ ” Grainger stuck to his word – and how! From Victoria to Peterborough to Regina to Winnipeg and finally Saskatoon, Grainger would wait his required number of days and go back to the clinic to donate another pint. He joined the seven per cent of the population in Saskatchewan that regularly donates, which is three per cent above the average in Canada. He remembers when 100 pints was his goal, though he’s far beyond that number now. What Grainger never expected was that his lifelong giving would lead to his diagnosis of leukemia. In for a routine donation on March 16, Grainger was rejected as a donor because his iron counts were low. A nurse at the Canadian Blood Service recommended he go see a doctor. “I was thinking there must be something wrong with their screening test. I’ve never been turned down. I was a little bit offended,” said Grainger with a laugh. “So I ended up getting a blood test and the next week my family doctor called and said, ‘I need you to come in and see me.’
T R I N I T Y
MANOR at stonebridge
When I came in, he said all my blood counts were half of normal. We did more tests; the results were all the same.” Weeks later, Grainger had his bone marrow biopsy, which determined that he had an aggressive case of pre-leukemia. Grainger went straight into an intense round of week-long chemotherapy. It took three weeks in hospital for him to recover. Moira Kohlenberg, community development coordinator with Canadian Blood Services, said this is the first time she’s heard of anything like this in the Saskatoon clinic. “We don’t want people to think we’re in the business of diagnosing anything, but that was helpful to him,” said Kohlenberg. “In David’s case, he took the advice that Health Canada says to go to the doctor and he was diagnosed.” Grainger was not experiencing any physical symptoms at the time he was rejected as a blood donor. “Early detection is vital in any kind of a cancer diagnosis. So my family doctor said, ‘You got a lucky break. You got to thank the blood service for what they did. They got things started.’ ” But Grainger doesn’t just want to say thank you. He wants to do something for the Canadian Blood Service clinic in Saskatoon. “I remember I was hooked up to a bag of platelets and a bag of blood. I got out of bed and I looked at the tag of each bag to see when they were collected,” said Grainger. “I got thinking some Joe Schmo just like me went in on their Saturday morning to give their donation. They spent the hour, gave their pint, had the snack afterward and went on home, never thinking about where it would go or who it would impact. “I’ll tell you, tears welled up in my eyes . . . that was me for 38 years on the other end, just giving. And here I am now receiving. Before this is done, it’s common for bone-marrow transplant patients to require 50-60 pints of blood. That’s a third of what I’ve given since that day in 1975.” Grainger’s goal is to replace himself as a donor. Now that the Canadian Blood Service has lost a loyal donor, Grainger wants to find someone who will be as committed as passionate about the process as he was, and he’s starting a campaign in Saskatoon to do just that. “We have about 400 donors a week come through our doors,” said Kohlenberg. “To meet our supply of blood needed for the hospital, we’d like to see about
Dave Grainger was recently diagnosed with leukemia (Photo by Joelle Tomlinson) 500 people a week. We’re always looking for more. This summer alone in Saskatoon, and really the entire North, we need about 800 new donors to come through our doors to meet that demand. Summer can be tough because of motor collisions and regular donors going on holidays and deviating from their normal routine.” Grainger wants to do his part. “I’ll never be able to donate again. Once you have cancer, that’s it,” said Grainger. “I thought, ‘Let’s see how many people that know me would go in and give at least one pint of blood in my name. And out of that, maybe some people will become regular donors.’ The company I work for (Bioriginal) said this was a great idea and were generous enough to sponsor the campaign and offer an incentive for these new donors.” The incentive is an iPad 2. Those eligible are new donors or those who have given blood before, but not in the last few years. Donors can book an appointment with the Canadian Blood Service clinic located at 325 20th Street East, and tell the nurse they are giving their pint of blood in honour of Grainger. There is a catch. By the end of August, they must donate a second pint of blood to be entered in the draw. “I want to drive new donors,” said Grainger. “Boy, if I could get a couple of hundred new donors going in there this summer, and out of that maybe a dozen people say, ‘Hey, I’m going to be as committed as he was.’ If I could replace
myself that many times, mission accomplished. “It’s good for you, it’s healthy. Every time you donate, they record your blood pressure and your pulse, so you have a record of your health history. On top of that, just last November Health Canada instituted a new policy that if you were rejected you had to go talk to the nurse and they can forward you to your doctor. It’s an extra screening process, one that saved my life and perhaps could save others’ too. “It saves lives, simple as that,” added Kohlenberg. “You can’t manufacture blood; you can’t buy it at a drug store. So we rely on other people’s generosity with their time. And you never know when you might need it yourself, as in David’s case. If you’ve never donated, this is the time to come forward. David is an example of what is going on in hospitals. Every minute, every day someone needs blood in Canada. That is a statistic.” Join Grainger’s campaign on Facebook under the event Saskatoon Summer Blood Drive 2013. To keep updated on his progress, visit https:// www.caringbridge.org/visit/davegrainger. Those who would like to book a time to donate blood can make an appointment at www. blood.ca or call 1-888-2-DONATE (366283). Inquiries about blood donation can also be made at that number, 24 hours a day. The draw for the iPad 2 will be at Bioriginal’s 20th anniversary event on Sept. 7.

Donating blood rewarding despite fear of needles
’m afraid of needles. Heights? Fine. Snakes? I can deal with. But needles? I am deathly, embarrassingly afraid of those little guys. When the opportunity came up to donate blood in honour of a story I covered for Dave Grainger, I said yes before considering the implications. “Mom, I’m going to donate blood for the first time! Aren’t I great?” I got an eyebrow raise and an “I hope you don’t pass out.” Moms have a better memory than their kids when it comes to things like this. She was probably recalling the time we went to the doctor and I refused to get the booster shot. Heroic mom that she is, she offered to get a shot and show me how easy it was. I watched Dr. B give my mom a shot in her arm, no cringing involved and then I refused again. Kids. But this was an opportunity I could not pass up. I got a call in the office and after a friendly hello, Mr. Grainger said, “Do you remember me?” I didn’t. He kindly reminded me he’d been my Sunday school teacher at Westgate Alliance Church. I immediately I recalled him, a man always bouncing with enthusiasm and having a contagious spirit for life. Right away, he told me his story. He had gone to donate blood, tested low for iron levels and went to the doctor. The diagnosis was leukemia. The diagnosis means he can never donate blood again; his 165th pint was his last. Now Mr. Grainger is trying to get new donors to the Canadian Blood Services clinic to replace his regular donations and the blood he is using as a leukemia patient. I jumped at the chance. Off I went to the clinic with another first-time donor in tow. I think it wasn’t until they were testing me for iron I realized needles would be involved. Kudos to the nurses at the clinic; they have what I’m going to call “nervedar,” a nose for detecting nervousness in donors. We got the full VIP treatment and were comfortably lounged back in side-by-side recliners. After marveling about how small my

Joelle after giving almost a pint of blood veins were (not funny) to the other nurses, my nurse hit the vein on her first try. I could have kissed her, but I’m sure that would cross some donor-nurse relationship boundary. Six minutes later, and almost a full pint, I turned to talk to my friend and frankly, things got weird. My vision went hazy, my eyes started watering and I mumbled, “I’m feeling a little lightheaded.” Those are the magic words right there. Operation stop-giving blood commences. Three nurses came rushing with a bowl of ice and cold cloths. It would have been hilarious had I not been crying like my four-year-old self in the doctor’s office so many years ago. Mortified, I asked the nurse if they could still use my blood. Kindly, she answered yes. I hope she wasn’t lying. My poor friend got to hang out in the hero’s lounge with the doughnuts and juice while I reclined for another 10 minutes. I booked again for Aug. 10. So did my friend. And you know what: I strongly encourage everyone to do the same. Even though I had one adverse reaction, it was worth it — especially after learning about the need our province and hospitals have for blood. Moira Kohlenberg, the community and development coordinator, gave me a scary statistic. Every minute of every day, someone needs blood. That was less than 30 minutes of my day, passing out and all. If I can do it, you can.
The beauty of the new album, Twenty Five Live, is that it was recorded in the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver. “It’s probably the venue I’ve played most in Vancouver, perhaps next to the Exhibition grandstand. We booked the place for three nights in November. The people just wanted to rock the first two nights and I wanted two shows to get the rhythm down. On the third night, we recorded the whole album and I’m happy with it.” Saviour, Bad Habits, Ain’t Nothing and Freedom are the songs which have been used as the earliest of the video-marketing tools. James remained a common sight on Saskatchewan stages. Sometimes he’d be at the Centennial Auditorium or as a guest on Kinsmen Telemiracle, with a couple of visits to the Saskatoon Exhibition, There was a 2005 Saskatoon appearance in front of Queen Elizabeth, the jazz festivals and the Juno Awards in Regina this year. With his 15 albums, six Juno awards, 16 Maple Blues awards, it was only a matter of time before he was inducted into the Canadian Music Industry’s Hall of Fame. It is a hall established within industry people, entirely different from the Juno-driven Canadian Music Hall of Fame. “It was wonderful to receive recognition, especially from the industry, for the work I love to do. The ceremonies were held in Toronto and it was so good to be saluted by people I consider my friends and heroes.”

James worked shows with star headliners (Continued from page 1) of the best people I’ve met in the business.” “We’d play some of the 1,000 or 2,000 soft-seat theatres. What a fantastic band he had! I had never realized before the tour why he was considered such as great performer. And then when I saw him for myself, I knew. What was there about Richards I’d like to copy? How about longevity?” In his young travelling days, James also worked on shows headlined by Bonnie Raitt, Lenny Kravetz, Carlos Santana, Buddy Guy and the Chieftains, “and I opened shows for Albert King when I was 20 years old.” He has recorded with Raitt and The Chieftains. As his reputation grew, he leaned more on his vocal skills. “I could always play the guitar, but I couldn’t always sing. I worked at it. Now, if I do a couple of instrumentals in an evening, that’s it. The singing opens up more opportunities. I’m always looking for songs I want to sing. I’ve been lucky enough to record two songs, I’m Losing You and Jealous Guy, by John Lennon. He was always fascinating to me because here’s a guy who’s one of the best lyricists of all time and yet he loved rockabilly and all that early stuff.” James makes lists of songs he’d like to cover someday, “but I love to be involved in the song-writing process, too. I’d estimate I made 20 trips across Canada because, for the new album, I wanted to write with some

An Evening Under the Stars The music of Queen comes back to life
Joelle Tomlinson Saskatoon Express
t’s not easy stepping into Freddie Mercury’s shoes, but Michael Shotton, a lead singer with the Jeans ’n Classics, doesn’t like to look at it that way. “Well, I don’t think you can ever fill those shoes, but you can put on a different pair of shoes,” said Shotton. “I would say I’m energetic, I try to be very involved with the crowd. We try and present it like a rock show, rather than putting on a suit and tie, putting one leg over your knee and clapping like you’re at the Masters. It’s a really fun night.” The fun night Shotton speaks of is one filled with the music of iconic rock band Queen, with the addition of a choir and orchestral accompaniment. The classic rock and orchestra combination was a brainchild of Peter Brennan, composer and founder of Jeans ’n Classics. “Peter Brennan and I got associated through some production work that he was doing. He had hired me and we’d become friends, and he liked what I did,” said Shotton, who sings, drums, writes, engineers and produces music, and is involved in many entertainment projects. “He had this concept ages ago and he finally put it into action almost 20 years ago. Eventually he asked me to start singing solo shows. “It really is the ultimate concept of bringing classical and pop together. To hear stuff like Queen and the Eagles and JW10893.F27 Elton John; we’ve all heard a band and a James singer. But to hear a band, singers and an
orchestra is a completely unique thing,” said Shotton. “Of course, Metallica has done their record with an orchestra as well as KISS, but it’s a little bit different. It’s really a journey through some of our favourite music, all completely done in a different platform, all done in a very powerful way. People will really love it.” Jeans ’n Classics are coming to Saskatoon on Aug. 21 for an outdoor concert being held at the Whitecap Dakota First Nation. The evening, called An Evening Under the Stars, falls on the night of a full moon, and promises singing, Creeland dancing and other forms of cultural and musical entertainment. This isn’t Shotton’s first time performing as Freddie Mercury here. Last year, Jeans ’n Classics performed the music of Queen with the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra. “It was an awesome reception. We had a great night,” he said. “The orchestra is killer. First of all, you can’t get into those orchestras unless you’re a good player. And those are all very accomplished players in their own rights. Each one of those players are all absolute stars. So when you get a bunch of people that can play and sing and get along, you’re in for a good evening.” Mercury, known for his flamboyant stage presence and unmistakable performance style, is a fun act to follow. “By the end of the night, people are always on their feet standing and singing and I run out into the crowd and if I forget a word or something like that I can

It wasn’t my fault! “We try and keep it very lively and fun and interactive. And we’ve always had great reviews with it and it’s always gone over quite well.” Even while performing onstage, Shotton said he hears new things in Brennan’s musical composition every show. “A little while ago we did Queen in Austin (Texas) and I was listening to Bohemian Rhapsody and there was a whole string section that I’d never heard before, and it was so cool,” he said. “Every orchestra approaches it a bit differently,

they all have different sounds, and there are always new things to hear. There are nights you do the Rhapsody and it’s like it was the last song ever played on Earth. “People just start freaking out and just loving it, and it’s really fun. Throughout the night I take each song and share some little tidbits I learned about the songs, what made the songs become what they are. So you go into the song thinking, ‘Wow, I didn’t know about that’ and it gives the music new life.” To learn more about Jeans ’n Classics, visit www.jeansnclassics.com.

Pageant winner honours missing Aboriginal women
Shelly Loeffler Saskatoon Express aryn Oakes holds an honoured role among First Nations people as the 2013 Miss Manito Ahbee Travelling Princess. The Manito Ahbee Festival is held yearly in Winnipeg, a pageant established to recognize missing and murdered Aboriginal women in Canada. Every four years, the family of an Aboriginal woman whose life was taken much too soon is honoured by the festival. This is the fourth year that the memory of Oakes’ friend, Cherisse Houle, is being honoured. Houle went missing and was murdered in July 2009, just shy of her 18th birthday. Oakes decided to compete in the pageant in order to bring to light the story of Houle and other young Aboriginal women.
As the year of her reign comes to an end, Oakes wants to do more to bring attention to missing Aboriginal women. So she organized a run/walk on June 22, entitled Honouring Our Sisters Awareness Run/Walk to raise money and awareness. The event will take place at Wanuskewin Heritage Park, with all proceeds going to Iskweuk E-Wichiwiochik Organization, a group dedicated to missing Aboriginal women. From the Nekaneet Cree Nation, Oakes, who attended Buena Vista School and Aden Bowman Collegiate in Saskatoon, carries strong family values and traditions and has become a Fancy dancer. Along with her mother, Irene, and her sister, Mallory, Oakes competes in powwows throughout North America. For more information on the run/walk, phone 306- 2218372 or call Rachel Fiddler at Osyayak High School: 306JW10926.F17 659-7730.

Mark Lane is the chief executive officer at Affinity Credit Union (Photo Submitted) “Mobile banking is growing in popularity with our members. The introduction of our next-generation mobile banking apps with Deposit Anywhere™ will provide additional solutions for those wanting to access our services easily, quickly … and when it’s convenient,” said Lane.
Deposit Anywhere™ is currently available to members of Westminster Savings Credit Union in British Columbia, Meridian in Ontario and now Affinity Credit Union in Saskatchewan. Deposit Anywhere™ is currently available only for clients with iPhones, but will be available for use with Android and Blackberry phones in the near future.
JUNE 21 JULY 01
ffinity Credit Union is revolutionizing the way you handle your online banking by spearheading the latest in financial and mobile phone services across Saskatchewan and the prairies. Saskatoon’s Affinity Credit Union is one of three credit unions that are the first, and only, financial institutions in Canada to offer Deposit Anywhere™ — a buzz-worthy mobile banking app that makes it easy to deposit a cheque using your iPhone from anywhere in the world. The technology has been available in the United States for some time, making it just one more thing for which Saskatchewan is leading the pack in Canada. “We are extremely pleased that credit unions are leading the way in the development and implementation of this exciting new app,” said Mark Lane, chief executive officer at Affinity Credit Union. “Deposit Anywhere™ enhances our ability to meet the changing needs of our members today and in the future." The process is simple. To use Deposit Anywhere™, Affinity members simply need to download the free Affinity Credit Union mobile banking app from the Apple App Store. Once the Deposit Anywhere™ app has been downloaded, the user logs in with their iPhone, takes pictures of the front and back of the cheque, selects the account to which they would like the funds deposited, and with a few key strokes the information is sent to Affinity. The money is deposited into the member’s account in real-time, and a confirmation number is returned to the user. The app can be used to deposit a cheque anywhere, anytime, in less than a minute, without having to visit a branch or find an automated teller machine (ATM).

I wonder who gets the tax social media for communicating with the deductible receipts from these events. public during their term – including software
accessories. Wouldn’t it be logical to expect that written communication to constituents would be on City letterhead rather than personalized stationery? How will a fridge magnet or pen bearing a councillor’s name, ward and phone number improve communications? They are already listed in the City’s white pages in the phone book and they can be reached through City Hall. As for newsletters and flyers, shouldn’t the same message be delivered to all residents which could be included in your water bill, either via mail or eBill? Or is the newsletter intended to promote specific councillors and what they, rather than council as a whole, are doing. And if councillors can’t do their own research or write their own speeches, perhaps they are in the wrong occupation. There is nothing in the guidelines that speaks to an election year other than to say that councillors must adhere to the requirements of the Code of Conduct regarding actions during a civic-election period. We know how well this works. Can we expect to see billboards extolling the virtues, decisions and initiatives of councillors in the years to come? And we may never know if the recipients of a councillor’s largesse were campaign donors because personal and exempted information governed by The Local
Authority Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act will be redacted prior to posting expense information on the City website. This, coupled with the fact that all donors may not be acknowledged on the campaign disclosure documents, will guarantee lack of transparency. It sounds like we’re into a four-year re-election campaign. At $10,000 per year, over the next four years each councillor can spend up to $40,000, for a grand total of $400,000 for the group. What is most galling is that one-third of a councillor’s $50,000-plus salary is tax free, a provision granted to allow a councillor to offset expenses like these. Wear and tear on your vehicle is now covered by mileage reimbursements. Use of a cellphone, laptop computer, printer, fax machine, office supplies and administrative support are already provided from the public purse for communication purposes. What’s next? Cars and chauffeurs? This guideline is open to abuse. Like the Canadian Senate, council sets its own perks and ambiguous guidelines. We may find that our councillors will make senators look like cheapskates. When you get your trinket, T-shirt, gift basket, flowers or card, remember you are paying for it. email@example.com

New Orleans history and culture. The passion for that style of jazz is still there. I heard it in the voice of Ben Jaffe, leader of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band (PHJB) and tuba player during a telephone interview just days before the band embarked to Saskatoon for the SaskTel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival. They are looking forward to the return. Jaffe remembers from the last visit seven years ago, that Saskatoon has a “deep level of appreciation for artistry and cultural importance.” That would explain the sold- out sign for the June 22 show at the Broadway Theatre. When asked if that was the customary response, Jaffe said, “It has been happening, but we are always surprised.” Though the band started in 1961, formed by Ben’s parents — Sandra and Allan Jaffe — it’s in the past few years they’ve gained recognition. They recently appeared on the Grammy Awards show, performing with Dr. John and the Black Keys. Prior to that, the band received a coveted Image Award from the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

Want a Free Makeover?
i Susan, I feel I really need a makeover. I have worked as a licensed practical nurse for 37 years and retired in June 2011. I’m still learning how to enjoy my retirement and I want to look good. A lot of people say I don’t look my age. Maybe they’re being nice. When I look in the mirror, I feel I look plain, tired and drab. I know that if a person looks good, they feel good and others notice. I believe how you look affects the way others treat you. I never really knew how to apply makeup properly or choose clothing and jewelry that is flattering. I need a new wardrobe and would make that change with some good advice. I’ve worn my hair the same for many years. I always notice and admire people who have that polished and striking look, no matter what age they are or what kind of figure they have. I guess I’ve always put my family and work before myself and it’s time for a change. I would be totally delighted if I was chosen for a makeover. It would be a first for me. — Donna

Honey Bun Café home away from home
Joelle Tomlinson Saskatoon Express
o owner Joscelyn Armstrong, Honey Bun Café is a second home. Armstrong, who has travelled extensively, describes herself as a “fairly restless person,” so opening her own café with a permanent base is a new challenge for the 29-year-old chef. “I went from my hometown farm (in Sceptre, Sask.) to Edmonton to Toronto for chef training. Then I backpacked for a while,” she said. “Then I came to Saskatoon for a few months, then I was off backpacking some more. Then back to Edmonton. I get kind of jittery; this is the first permanent thing I’ve ever done and that’s the scariest part.” Armstrong’s Honey Bun Café, located where Strongfield’s Coffee used to be on Second Avenue, is filled with the swirling scents of fresh-baked cinnamon buns and fresh bread for her signature stuffed buns. The decor is farmhouse-chic and features pieces torn out from her family farm in Sceptre. “The day after I got the keys, we just ripped it apart and went for a whole new look. It’s definitely got pieces of my personality from growing up on the farm, as well as that chic rustic look which I love so much,” she said. “Literally, the wooden accent on the wall is just ripped out of my barn; my dad brought them to Saskatoon for me. I just wanted this
place to be a comfortable café where people can sit and enjoy the ambience, and the same goes for the food.” Items on the Honey Bun Café menu range from soups, salads, cinnamon buns, a range of specialty coffees and, of course, the stuffed buns. There are a range of buns to choose from, such as omelette with bacon and cheese breakfast buns that are baked throughout the day. “Stuffed buns are something that my mom made while I was growing up,” said Armstrong. “She would make pizza ones and ones with cabbage and ground beef. To me, it was a regular part of my life, and when I was figuring out what direction to take my café in, I thought, ‘I could do stuffed buns; is that too boring?’ “Turns out they are the most popular item on the menu, along with the cinnamon buns. It really fits in with the whole Honey Bun theme.” To make a stuffed bun a breakfast option, Armstrong says she and her staff cook the bacon, make an omelette that is cut into strips, and then roll the two up with cheese. She then seals the inside contents of the bun with her own homemade dough. She has the process down to a “science.” Soon Armstrong plans to have a suggestion jar, where customers can suggest their own variety of a stuffed bun each week; the winners will get the bun named after them. “I have my particular way of sealing it, because I’ve been doing it for so long.

Joscelyn Armstrong in Honey Bun Café on Second Avenue. (Photo by Joelle Tomlinson) They used to burst open all the time, and it would make me crazy,” she said with a laugh. “Now I’ve got it down to an art. After they’ve been sealed, I proof them, let them rise and bake them.” Since opening approximately two months ago, Armstrong has spent 18-20 hours of each day since at the cafe, starting to bake at 3 a.m. She is determined to have a presence in downtown Saskatoon, and hopes deterrents such as the parking won’t stop people from coming in to check it out. “It’s all foot traffic right now. I find downtown has been really supportive because people who are walking by can
just stop in as they do their shopping and errands,” she said. “We definitely go through a lot of cinnamon buns in a day; I like to cook them all day long so people can have them warm and fresh. They’re definitely my favourite.” To learn more about Honey Bun Café, go to its website at www.honeybun.ca, on Facebook under Honey Bun Café or at the Twitter handle @honeybuncafe. The café, located at 167A Second Avenue South, is open Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is open from until 8 p.m. on Thursdays, and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays.

SWELLBOW: Another bodacious bursa sits over the bony part of the bent elbow. This olecranon bursa is easily traumatized, as well as easily infected. This swollen bursa (bursitis) blows up like a blowfish’s blowpop and feels like a jug of water has been taped to your arm. I will often drain these and place a pressure dressing on them (or they fill right back up). If they do fill back up, then a cortisone injection may keep it at bay.

Purchase shelves, peg boards, hooks, racks and cabinets based on what you need and where they fit. Purchase clear totes so that you are able to see what you have.

Doing this helps maintain an organized garage for a long time. I enjoy your questions and tips; keep them coming. Missed a column? Can’t remember a solution? Need a speaker for an upcoming event?

It is a shortlived season, spanning just six to eight weeks. If you can get your hands on some locally-grown asparagus, you are in for a real treat. Fresh asparagus spears are a good source of anti-oxidants such as lutein, zea-xanthin, carotenes and crypto-xanthins. Together, these flavonoid compounds help remove harmful oxidant-free radicals from the body, protect it from possible cancer, neuro-degenerative diseases and viral infections. Serve up this puff full of fresh asparagus and impress your guests. It is pretty and delicious.

I have spoken with many people and they all agree that smooth-top stoves are a lot of work to clean. You are doing everything right and you are using the most popular cleaning methods for smooth-top stoves. You also made a wise comment when you said that immediate cleaning action results in less work later on. Another solution to try: Sprinkle baking soda onto the stove (when cooled). Next, lay a tea towel soaked in dish soap and water over the mess. Leave for 10 minutes and scrub with an abrasive, but scratch-resistant pad. If you use a plain old smooth dish cloth, the food is too difficult to remove. Scrub the food and baking soda off and rinse with water.

Views of the World
Betty or Veronica? Archie movie in works
• The average man reaches maturity at age 43, which is 11 years after women, according to a study. 11 years? I’m not buying it. Now, would somebody pull my finger? • From Janice Hough: “After Chad Johnson playfully smacked his attorney on the butt in court, an angry judge sentenced the former NFL star to 30 days for a probation violation. Talk about a penalty for excessive celebration.” • From TC Chong: “Pete Rose is making over $1 million a year just signing autographs. I guess they don’t call him Charlie Hustle for nothing.’’ • Last weekend, a couple got married in the New Jersey IKEA where they met eight years ago. Married at IKEA? Do they have a screw loose? • Torben Rolfsen, on South Florida deputies rescuing an endangered Key Deer that had a large Doritos bag stuck over its head: “How did they know it wasn’t just an ashamed Marlins fan?’’ • I would make Jordan Eberle the captain of the Edmonton Oilers long before I would pick Taylor Hall.
• Bill Littlejohn, on a New York Mets marketing official using a dating website that pairs older women with younger men to promote third baseman David Wright’s All-Star candidacy: “The official reportedly wrote a message saying: ‘Here’s to You, The Next Brooks Robinson.’” • Hough, on the first game of the Stanley Cup final ending in the third overtime period: “To put that into Chicago perspective, the Blackhawks’ 4-3 win took longer than the Cubs remained in contention this season.” • From Saskatoon comedian Bryan Cox: “Prime Minister Harper wants more transparency in government. Well, just hire the now ex-CEO of Lululemon.” • NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair played the “don’t-you-know-who-I-am-card’’ after being stopped by an RCMP officer last week. My reply would have been: “Well, I know this much: you’re no Jack Layton.” • Jeff O’Neill tweeted that the Sedins will retire any second now. Yes, this is the same Jeff O’Neill who played three seasons after he retired.
New invention prevents crack-ups
• Chong, on the legendary Archie comic being made into a movie: “I nominate Gary Bettman to play the role of Jughead.” • From Hough: “Airport security stopped actor Peter Mayhew, Chewbacca in the Star Wars movies, for using a cane that looked like a light sabre. They eventually let him on the plane. #Maythefarcebewithyou.” • RT Rod Pedersen @sportscage Your take on the Kory Sheets situation? Leave a msg on the Mr. Sub After Hours Hotline at 546-CAGE. Best call gets a Mr. Sub dinner for 2. I’m thinking the winner should win a get-out-of-jail-free card. • From Chong: “Shouldn’t the logo for the Ottawa RedBlacks be a checkerboard?” • Last week, I wrote Chief Whitecap would be the best name for the new south bridge. I would be equally happy if the bridge was named after Cliff Wright. • From Rolfsen: “Looks like the Sochi Olympics torch relay got underway with an early start at the French Open.” • I wonder how the Henry Blanco era in Toronto will be remembered.
By RJ Currie • Three things scientists found on Einstein’s planet, newly-discovered about 2,000 lightyears from Earth: 3. Fast jet-stream winds; 2. Temperatures of 3,600 degrees Fahrenheit; 1. The Pittsburgh Penguins scoring touch. • Did I see Boston blow a two-goal, third-period lead and lose in overtime to the Blackhawks in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final? That’s a fine howdo-you-Oduya. • Tennis star Victoria Azarenka has reportedly launched a new line of perfume. Lemme guess; Estee Louder? • A British company has designed underpants that prevent butt cracks from showing. Great. Now we’ll never recognize our plumber. • Chad Johnson got 30 days in jail for patting his attorney on the rump. Pats-wise, that’s the second time he’s been a bust. • Kobe Bryant isn’t sure he’ll be ready for the start of next season. He’s recovering from a ruptured Achilles tendon and a strained coaching relationship. • Jennifer Aniston says she’s jealous of Kate Middleton’s hair. I feel the same way, except I’m jealous of everyone with hair. • A bride and groom in England received a soccer dugout for a wedding present. I think I can speak for most husbands on this one: At least it’s roomier than the doghouse. • David Ferrer lost to Rafael Nadal in the French Open final, his 17th loss in a row to Rafa on clay. He was as doomed to fail as the Donate button on a blog. • With all due respect to Lady Gaga, the only way I’d pay $13,000 for a fingernail is if it was still attached to Kate Upton. • JaMarcus Russell says he has a tryout upcoming with the Super-Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens. In a related story, Paris Hilton has an application in to Mensa. • A Colombian poet reportedly plans to sell his testicles to raise money for a European tour. I gotta say, that takes — never mind. • A truck carrying 6,000 gallons of Scotch overturned and ignited just south of Newark (N.J.). The blaze was extinguished using foam and the tears of two dozen New Jersey Devils. • Vladimir Putin is getting a divorce amid rumours he’s been courting former Olympic gymnast Alina Kabayeva. Putin denies any fling, but I suspect he gave the gymnast a tumble. • Hayley Wickenheiser says the University of Calgary helped her get a degree by planning exams around her hockey schedule. In response, NCAA athletes have said, “Exams?” • A friend of mine is upset the Oilers fired coach Ralph Kruger via Skype. Mind you, he thinks hashtag is a game he played while experimenting with drugs. • If you find any of my jokes poisonous, I urge you to take an anecdote.
Mike Duffy (Wiki Photo) • From Hough: “Got to love this. The Bachelorette is followed on ABC by Mistresses.” • It was 80 years ago last week that the first drive-in theatre opened —and the baby boom began. • True story: Kawasaki, Japan, hosts a penis festival every year on the first Sunday in April. The guest of honour this year was Mike Duffy.

Remember when Peter Parker was bitten by the spider? The updated Sorento is kind of like that. By malcolm gunn
www . wh e e l bas e m e dia . com
ow new the 2014 Kia Sorento really is depends on how you look at it, or more correctly, where you look at it. Kia’s current design renaissance encompasses the street-wise Soul and Sportage wagons as well as the Optima and Rio sedans. You can also place the current-generation Sorento that was launched for 2011 on that list. The lines are so right on the money in terms of contemporary style and carrying capacity that there was obviously no point in monkeying around with the mid-sized wagon’s looks. For 2014, the Georgia-built Sorento receives a minor nose tweak, including the ubiquitous mesh-style grille, updated headlights and optional fog lights, plus new taillight lenses. Otherwise the silhouette remains basically the same. Surprisingly, however, just about every other part of the Sorento’s DNA has been altered, redesigned, or otherwise enhanced, kind of like when Peter Parker was bitten by the spider to become Spiderman. Same kid on the outside, but better reflexes and more power. For 2014, Kia has mounted the Sorento on a platform that’s identical to that of parent Hyundai’s five-passenger Santa Fe Sport. Kia claims the new structure is 18 per cent stiffer than the 2013 version; attached to that is a stouter sub-frame that holds the powertrain more firmly. There’s also a new independent front suspension, while a more compact rear suspension aids interior space and restricts noise and vibrations from entering the cabin. The Sorento’s hydraulic power-steering system has been exchanged for a more efficient electric unit that features Comfort, Normal and Sport settings, depending on your desired level of steering firmness. Kia’s design team also took care of business on the inside, installing a new instrument panel and centre control stack with easier-to-find buttons and knobs. As before, Sorento can accommodate up to seven passengers with the optional third-row seat, but there’s precious little legroom in back and equally scarce stowage room when loaded to the max with passengers. There is a solution if a more comfy back row is a must,

but it requires visiting your Hyundai dealer to scope out the extended-wheelbase version of the Santa Fe. Under the hood, the 191-horsepower 2.4-litre fourcylinder with direct injection (fuel is sprayed under very high pressure directly into the combustion chambers instead of the intake manifold) carries on with its baseengine duties. However, added performance is at hand with the available 290-horsepower 3.3-litre V6 (also directinjected) that delivers 14 more ponies than the outgoing 3.5-litre V6. A six-speed automatic with manual shift controls carries over as the sole transmission. As before, you can order your four-cylinder or V6 Sorento in front- or all-wheel drive. The latter is a fulltime system that constantly varies the torque to all four wheels and can direct power to the outer wheels in high-speed turning situations for added control (known as torque vectoring). Interestingly, estimated four-cylinder fuel economy is 10.4 l/100 km in the city and 7.1 on the highway (two-wheel-drive), which is fairly close to the V6’s 11.4/8.0 rating. That points to the extra work the fourcylinder has to do to lug the Sorento around, which might make you wonder what the point is. Clearly, the four-cylinder enters the market at a more favourable pricepoint. The 2014 Sorento starts at about $28,500, which is about the same price as the previous edition, despite and increase in content and that one great intangible, class. For 2014 Kia is holding firm to the same LX, EX and SX trim levels. At the top, the SX model does its luxury best to coddle passengers with a wood-trimmed interior with ventilated soft leather-covered seats on the inside, while self-leveling headlights and exclusive 19-inch wheels (17- and 18-inch wheels adorn lower trims) are installed outside. As for options, the tricks up the Sorento’s sleeve include a power liftgate, panoramic sunroof, advanced voice-activated communications, infotainment and navigation controls (incorporating an eight-inch touchscreen) and a blind-spot monitoring system that constantly tracks vehicles in the immediate vicinity and issues an audible and visual alert should any get too close.

In an age of bigger-was-better, AMC’s Ambassador line helped keep the company competitive in the “space” race fine lines
www. wh e e l bas e m e dia . com
1965-’66 AMC ambassador
n an age where excess wasn’t actually seen as excessive, the market for small and thrifty cars was indeed a thin one. And if you didn’t build big cars, you were missing out on sales and huge profits. Sleek and stylish, the redesigned American Motors Ambassador had everything going for it when it first appeared in 1965. As the company’s flagship fashion statement, the car seemed — on paper, at least — to be the equal of its Big Three competition. The Ambassador also represented a fundamental shift in corporate ideology. The Kenosha, Wis.-based automaker would move its focus away from primarily fuel-efficient vehicles, instead turning out bigger, faster and potentially more profitable cars. The cost of competing with General Motors, Ford and Chrysler had always been difficult for the company. A mid’50s merger between Nash Motors and Hudson Motors to form American Motors Corporation (AMC) helped a bit, but still left the newly combined venture in a distant fourth place. Lacking sufficient sales volume and the resulting financial muscle meant that the retooling and development costs necessary to create new products was always a profit-zapping proposition. Product change was not only an expensive gamble, but getting it wrong was the sure-fire way to financial disaster. Back in those days, the top-of-the-line Nash (later Rambler) Ambassador was a prime example of right-carwrong-decade timing. In the early 1950s, the car’s soap dish shape and pioneering unit-body construction ran counter to the flashier but overwrought excesses built by the Big Three. Even after hiring famed Italian stylist Battista Pininfarina to help reshape the sheetmetal, the Ambassador could not shake its bloated look and stodgy character. Following the Hudson merger, the Ambassador brand finally began showing signs of life, eventually sprouting a modest set of tailfins and generating decent sales results as it helped AMC stay in the black. By the early 1960s, AMC was focused on building three specific vehicle lines: the compact Rambler American; midsize Rambler Classic; and full-size Rambler Ambassador. The thrifty American maintained its connection with a small but determined group of car buyers that prized fuel economy above all else while the Classic and Ambassador catered to roomier and more luxurious tastes. Both of these cars also caught the attention of Motor Trend magazine, which, in 1963, bestowed its Car-of-the-Year honors on the duo. Under the leadership of company president Roy Abernathy and chief stylist Dick Teague, AMC began charting a very different course, with the Ambassador leading the way. The all-new 1965 model had grown four inches in overall length while maintaining an understated appear-
ance (advertising of the day referred to the Ambassador line as the “sensible spectaculars”). Although the base Ambassador 880 or better equipped 990 could be ordered with a 232-cubic-inch inline six-cylinder powerplant, many versions featured a 327-cubic-inch V8 that delivered up to 270 horsepower. The 990 was available as a two-door hardtop and convertible that were as attractive as anything built by its Detroit-based competitors. And with a list price of around $3,000, few could quibble about the cost of ownership. Other corporate changes, however well-meaning, completely missed the mark. In an attempt to mimic the success of the Ford Mustang and Plymouth Barracuda, AMC attached a swoopy fastback roof onto its Classic-series body. The resulting calamity managed to fool about 10,000 buyers into thinking they were getting something sporty instead of a cartoonish looking car that weighed more than the model upon which it was based. A further break with tradition occurred in 1966, when the 66-year-old Rambler surname was dropped from the Ambassador as part of an overall brand phase-out. Abernathy correctly surmised that the public linked it to AMC’s econo-car past instead of to its big-car future. That year the Ambassador also gained a new deluxe version called the DPL. This was essentially a 990-series two-door hardtop with distinctive exterior trim and an interior that contained a floor console and reclining front bucket seats dressed in houndstooth fabric. At the shallow end of the pool, AMC’s normally fuelsipping Rambler American featured the Rogue, which was a sporty compact with racing stripes, floor-mounted fourspeed gearbox and tire-squealing V8 power. Although AMC’s traditional budget-minded buyers had no idea what had happened to their beloved buttoned-down car company, sales nonetheless began to steadily move up the ladder, an indicator that Abernathy and Teague were on the right track. Unfortunately, increased new-car deliveries failed to staunch the rising tide of red ink sweeping over the organization. AMC’s board of directors forced Roy Abernathy out of office, but the quest to produce ever bigger Ambassadors as well as more youth-oriented machinery like the Javelin and AMX would continue unabated for years to come. In the end, it was the Ambassador that helped to fundamentally alter AMC’s direction. It may have accounted for a mere fraction of total passenger car sales, but it was an important first step in trying to bring the company’s products in tune with what the consumer of the day really wanted.

ILLUSTRATED MY ADAM YOUNG WWW.WHEELBASEMEDIA.COM century cult car known as the Mini. But, thousands of vehicles and a century later, where does Austin’s story begin and where does the real tale take a twist? In wool. Naturally. Without a little initiative, the bright-eyed, 27-yearold employee might never have moved to Australia’s southern coast from England to his first position keeping the machines running at the Wolseley Sheep Shearing Company. From shearing company to sheer automotive genius? Austin was no average employee. Born in 1866 to a family of hard-working farmers, Austin maintained those first shearing machines so well he was asked to return to Wolseley’s headquarters in England to supervise the whole operation. In his spare time a legacy blossomed. From the darkness of his garage, Austin would remember the long journeys into the Australian Outback, the same trips that gave him insight into the need for gasoline-powered vehicles. It was the future, he believed. A few years later he built an experimental threewheeled motor car that was propelled by a two-cylinder engine. A year after that, his first four-wheeler was exhibited at the renowned Crystal Palace exhibition centre in England. And, by the turn of the century, his three-horsepower, single-cylinder, two-seat carriage was capable of traveling 100 miles (160 kilometres) without stopping. He was onto something. The wool could wait. The Wolseley group felt the world could not. With Austin as general manger, the Wolseley Tool and Motor Company opened. After taking the company around the world, Austin resigned and looked to begin his own business. With 20,000 British pounds of capital, he founded the Austin Motor Company in 1905 in a small derelict printing shop near Longbridge, England. He received his first orders at the 1905 London Motor Show and produced his first car, the 25-horsepower Endcliffe Phaeton that cost 650 pounds. Word quickly spread. Skilled craftsmen from around the country were on their way to the new plant. Austin made 120 cars the first year. A night shift at the plant came next. And soon after that new models were developed and activity hummed. They made everything at that little plant — cars with four-cylinder engines, six-cylinders and even a 9.7-litre

engine with 60 horsepower. Eight years later the company was producing more than 1,500 cars with 2,000 employees. When the First World War began in 1914, he halted production of his popular vehicles and changed everything over to munitions. His organizational ability to achieve remarkable volume out of one plant turned his factory into a central production point in England. When the war ended, Austin went back to what he knew best. He made the Austin Twenty, a vehicle powered by a 6.6-litre engine, as well as the Austin Twelve and the Austin Seven, a then-new concept in small cars conceived in the billiard room of his home. The Seven was meant to meet the needs of the everyday family. Not everyone saw the genius. Austin received great opposition from his board of directors, and and had to finance the project himself and do most of the work in his garage. In the end, the Seven would be exactly what postwar England wanted. Within four years, production of the “Chummy,” as it became known, topped 14,000 units per year. Business was booming. Through the 1920s and ’30s, Austin was Britain’s largest manufacturer. Another world battleground in 1939 again sent him into the factory to help supervise the changeover to munitions. Austin died at his home in late May of 1941, a full 36 years after forming his car company. Later, heavily modified Austin Sevens became the foundation for the Lotus Car Company and Austin itself became part of the giant British Motor Corporation. But his designing genius and unfailing energy made him an inspiration to many for years to come. The Mini, which arrived in 1959, was based on the Austin Seven and his concept of small-car transportation. Mostly, Austin was a man of many things and those efforts were frequently recognized. He was knighted in 1917 for his services to the war effort in England. He also held public office as a Conservative member of the House of Commons from 1919-1924. In 1936 he was made a Baron — Lord Austin of Longbridge — for his philanthropic efforts, including support for several Birmingham hospitals and research centres. In life, and death, he was no average man.

With truck sales generally on the rise, a new Chevrolet Silverado couldn’t come at a better time, especially when it’s full of new tricks By TOM JENSEN,
www . wh e e l bas e m e dia . com
hile Chevrolet’s jaw-dropping 2014 Corvette Stingray has dominated the automotive headlines this spring — and with good reason — Chevrolet has a much more important new 2014 model hitting the streets: the new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado full-size pickup truck. Sure, the Corvette is Chevrolet’s halo car and leading attention-getter. But the Silverado makes it rain dollars for parent company General Motors. Through the first three months of 2013, Chevrolet sold a whopping 116,649 Silverados in the United States to just 2,931 Corvettes. During that period, Corvette sales were flat versus the same time in 2012, but sales of the Silverado were up a solid 22 per cent. In fact, to give some idea of the importance of the big Chevy pickup, for the first three months of the year, one in every four Chevrolet vehicles sold in the United States was a Silverado. And Chevrolet is counting on the all-new truck to deliver even better numbers going forward. SQUARE: Pretty much the only round obBilled as “new from hood to hitch,” the 2014 jects on the new Silverado are the headlights Silverado offers a number of significant improve. . . and the tires. ments and upgrades, including its powerplants. The light-duty Silverado 1500 will offer a choice of three all-new engines from what General Motors terms the EcoTec3 family. The 4.3-litre V6 produces 285 horsepower and 305 poundfeet of torque, while the 5.3-litre V8 makes 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. GM specs place the V6’s towing capacity at OCTANE LOUNGE 7,200 pounds (3,280 kilograms), with the 5.3-litre able to tow 11,500 pounds (5,230 kilgrams). Fuel economy for the 5.3-litre two-wheel-drive model is estimated at 8.7 l/100 km on the highway. V6 KEEP ON TRUCKIN’: Carroll Shelby is no longer estimates haven’t been announced yet. with us, but the demand for his vehicles is Later this year, a 6.2-litre engine will become still sky-high. Shelby American said strong available, although specs for it have not been demand is causing the company to increase released. Interestingly, the largest of the three production of its 575-horsepower Shelby Raptor from a planned 100 units all the way engines is based on the same powerplant in the new Corvette, but is specifically tuned for truck up to 500. The Shelby Raptor costs US use. $62,620, or $17,995 more than the stock model in the United States. In terms of functionality, for the first time
lide into the lower, sport-bolstered driver’s seat and set your heart racing. The All-New 2014 IS features an LFA-inspired instrument cluster, aggressive aerodynamic styling and performance-tuned suspension.
Chevrolet will offer a six-foot, six-inch pickup box in addition to the standard five-foot, eight-inch box. All Silverados ride on revised front and rear suspensions, with cabs that are stronger and quieter than before. The cabin doors are inlaid from the surrounding metal to help reduce cockpit noise. GM has made a concerted push to upgrade its interiors, and the Silverado benefits from a total redesign here to go with the new exterior and mechanical bits. Chevrolet’s “MyLink” communications systems is available and there are multiple power outlets and USB ports on some models, as well as an available SD card slot and 20-centimetre colour touch screen. That’s all well and good, but this is a truck and people will buy it for their needs, regardless of frills and gadgets. The Silverado crew cab (four-door) with the 5.3-litre V8 was due to hit dealer showrooms in late May and carries a base MSRP of $32,600 in Canada, which includes a $1,600 destination charge. Later this summer, the regularcab ($27,100) and a new double-cab model ($31,000) will join the Silverado lineup, with prices to come. The V6 engine also will become available in the summer. With the market for high-end trucks exploding, later this year, Chevrolet will offer up a “High Country” model that will be even fancier than the LTZ, which is the previous top-of-the-line model that will continue into 2014 as well. All told, there will be a whopping seven Silverado 1500 trim levels. Higher-line models will be available with what Chevrolet promises to be segment-exclusive safety features, including Forward Collision Alert (an alarm sounds when approaching much slower traffic), Lane Departure Warning (the truck lets you know when you’re drifting) and Front and Rear Park Assist (chimes that let you know when close is too close). So while Chevrolet may have brought sexy back for 2014 with the new Corvette, it’s also pushing the envelope on a vehicle that many workers rely on day in and day out to help them earn a living. And from the looks of it, Chevy has done a good job doing it.
It makes any journey feel like a victory lap.

t. Ray Collins is a busy guy. A very busy guy. As a lead detective with the autotheft task force of the Michigan State Police Department, Collins spends most of his workday trying to stay ahead of criminals by thinking like one. And that’s a job that never gets any easier. About 70,000 vehicles are reported stolen in the Detroit metro area every year. And with modern technology becoming a thief’s best friend, prospective robbers are becoming more brazen and acutely resourceful in their schemes and efforts. “Everything in auto theft seems to go in cycles,” said Collins, seemingly amazed at the complexity of the tricks of the trade. “They move from scam, to scam, to scam. As soon as we sort of get a grasp on one scam, they have moved to another.” Collins said that computers and the Internet are the tools of choice for prospective car thieves. Whether it’s posting a misleading online classified ad, or producing a counterfeit car title to legitimize the sale of a stolen vehicle, criminals use technology to trick buyers and stay ahead of law enforcement. In fact, according to the U.S. Internet Crime Complaint Center, consumer reports of shady vehicle sales increased 25 per cent last year and are expected to jump significantly again in 2013. “This is a new generation of car thief, and both private sellers and buyers have to be The marque of a legitimate very careful,” Collins said. “These scammers auction on Ebay.com, for ex- are very good at what they do, and they don’t ample, is a seller with good care who gets hurt when they’re trying to pull feedback from previous auc- a rip-off.” tions, the seller has also sold And while Collins said most thieves try related items, and a price to avoid violence when it comes to pulling a that does not seem too good vehicle scam or theft, there are exceptions. to be true.

This auction apmeet anybody at your house. That’s just too pears on the up and up. big a risk nowadays. You might be getting
set up for more than car theft,” Collins said. “Always meet somebody that wants to take a car for a test drive, at the police station. That’s a sure-fire way to protect yourself.” Collins also offered some other important guidelines when selling a vehicle: • If possible, bring a friend or family member along for the test drive, and make sure someone knows how long you expect to be gone. Carry your cell phone and keep it handy and visible throughout the trip. • Be wary of anyone who makes an offer to buy a vehicle sight-unseen. This is often a warning sign of a larger scam that involves transferring the title through a bad cheque or another fraudulent payment method. • Negotiate only with the specific person who is purchasing your car, and never with someone acting on the buyer’s behalf. And if willing to accept a cheque, complete the transaction at the buyer’s bank to ensure payment verification. And while it’s important for sellers to protect themselves, Collins warns that most of the complaints he investigates come from the buyers. A wildly popular scam flooding into Collins’ office involves a stolen vehicle, a counterfeit title, and what appear to be a trustworthy seller and a safe meeting place. Scammers will post a vehicle for sale on a web site and invite prospective buyers to an apartment complex for a meeting and a test drive. Typically there’s a sob story about financial hardship as the reason why a quick sale and a cash payment are necessary, and why the selling price is well below book or market value. The title — usually create with some nifty computer work — matches the vehicleidentification number and the apartment address where the meeting was set up, a transaction is made, and the two parties go their separate ways. “Everything seems normal, the guy gives you a title for it, you give him cash for the car, you go to get the car titled, and it’s stolen,” Collins said. “You go back to the apartment complex and nobody has ever heard of this guy. What you weren’t paying any attention to is that they never walked out of the apartment. He walked out in between buildings or he came down the stairway.”
Collins offered these important tips when buying a car to avoid getting taken by a “curbstoner” scam: • Be wary of prices that seem too good to be true. Several Web sites, such as Edmonds.com, kellybluebook.com or NADAGuides.com — offer buyers a credible guide to vehicle pricing. The lower the price, the higher the probability of a sales scam, and the perfect warning to walk away. • Title washing is another popular sales scam that involves removing the word “salvaged” from the history of vehicles that have been wrecked and repaired. Spending a few bucks on a vehicle history report from CarFax or AutoCheck is often a telling and wise investment. • While the focus is on your personal safety, don’t forget the basics of the transaction. If you’re buying, thoroughly test the vehicle in broad daylight, also making sure to test the lights. “There are no guarantees when buying or selling a vehicle,” Collins said. “But try not to negotiate alone, use the Internet as a tool, and if something doesn’t feel right, there are plenty of other cars for sale out there to choose from.”

Sellers should take pictures in generic settings and it’s best to arrange test drives away from their homes. The police station makes a good meeting spot. Let others know what you’re doing, have your cell phone and bring a friend. A big no-no is giving out your street address over the phone or online. Would-be crooks can Google the information and get a good look at your home as if they were standing right in front of it.

Standard 196-horsepower 2.5-litre four-cylinder is estimated to be three to five per cent more efficient than the 2013 model.
The midsize 2014 Malibu demonstrates how quickly changes can be made to a car when an automaker puts its mind to it. With the 2013 Malibu on the market for barely a year, Chevrolet has decided to give it a new look, more interior room and a better ride. Why? The Malibu is in a hotly contested segment and clearly wasn’t standing out enough. The 2014 Malibu goes on sale this fall.
The 2.5 shuts off when the Malibu is stopped, and then restarts when you take your foot off the brakes. This saves fuel. Visual changes are largely limited to the nose where the grille openings have been enlarged and recontoured.
Suspension revised to be “on par with more expensive sport sedans.”
Centre console has a longer armrest; seat backs scooped out for more rear knee room.

The Fast and the Flexible rule the streets
here are a zillion steps that go into designing and engineering a new vehicle. Maybe even more than a zillion. Then all the tooling has to be made, the process figured out, the factory built, the staff trained and all the parts suppliers brought on stream to make the individual components. Itâ€™s a gargantuan undertaking and itâ€™s a miracle, really, that a single car ever gets out the other end and into your driveway. It takes a few years and often billions of dollars to get a brand new design on its feet, but what if they get it wrong? Umm, what do you mean, â€œget it wrongâ€?? Thereâ€™s a point where the design is locked down so all the tooling can be finalized. In the time gap until the car hits the streets, all kinds of things can go wrong. Maybe the competition has one-upped you already and youâ€™re about to put out a second- or thirdplace product. Maybe changes in the economy or a huge spike in fuel prices have made a design irrelevant before the first engine fires up. Or, maybe, just maybe, the market research was flawed. Great, now what. Is all that time and money out the window? Do you have to start from scratch? If that happens, a cashstrapped company might be looking at bankruptcy or robbing from investment and development in other model lines to stay afloat. But if youâ€™re smart like Honda, you put a car like the Civic under the microscope. You have to understand that the Civic and the Accord are sacred vehicles. Honda relies heavily on their sales, probably more so than the rest of the companyâ€™s vehicle lines combined, so a lot of attention is paid to them. Funny thing is, even before the new 2012 Civic came out, Honda actually knew that it had missed the mark. It had gone cheaper, anticipating that thatâ€™s where things were headed. In fact, the market was going the other way. Changes to richen up the Civic were already on the horizon even before the new model was launched since it was too far in the pipeline to alter. As the company suspected, the reviews of the new Civic were lackML41643.F17 luster and it updated the car with a

more upscale look and feel as well as structural upgrades to increase crash safety. And it all worked. Not that there was actually anything wrong with the 2012 model as sales were brisk, but, more importantly, Honda showed the speed at which changes could be made on the fly. Elapsed time? About 12 months. I suspect that that set a new standard for reacting quickly to a market that also seems to change more quickly these days. As time goes on, you might see a series of running changes made during the course of a vehicleâ€™s run as opposed to the planned annual tweaks to option packages and trim levels that have been past practice. A case in point is the 2008-â€™11 Chevrolet Malibu. Handsome, yet elegant, and just a good overall car that had only seen a few changes over its whole career. I really canâ€™t tell one model year from the next, honestly. Well, along comes early 2012 and Chevrolet launches a new 2013 Malibu with pleasant-but-not-spectacular styling. The problem is the new Ford Fusion also came out and that car was a stunning work of art. Then there were the usual segment killers, such as the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord that the Malibu has to fight. Chevrolet starts taking it on the chin from the motoring press and instead of riding it out, takes the Honda example and goes to work right away on changes to silence the critics and even create a little magic of its own. The nose is new, the ride is apparently better, thereâ€™s a revised centre console and more knee room for rear-seat passengers. The updated Malibu goes on sale this fall, about 18 months after the new 2013 model was launched in the spring of 2012. By current standards, thatâ€™s about as fast as it gets and although it represents a shift in thinking, it really shouldnâ€™t come as a surprise because vehicle technology is not the only technology that gets better over time. The whole construction process can be changed around and adapted more quickly and design changes can be modeled and tweaked and put into play within months, so long
as the corporate will exists to do it. If this practice becomes as common as I suspect it will, we could eventually be looking at noticeable changes to a single car line every six months as automakers try to one-up each other. And unless other JW10934.F17 manufacturers adapt, they will be left James
behind. It might even be a case of survival for the Fast and the Flexible. You can message Rhonda by logging on to www.shiftweekly.com and clicking the contact link. Wheelbase Media is a worldwide provider of automotive news and feature stories.
