Class of 1950

Bedford friends get back together

U

p to 45 members of the 1950 Grade 12 graduating classes at Bedford Road Collegiate are returning to Saskatoon for trips down memory lane June 28-29. For most graduates, there is a common theme of Bedford Road Collegiate being a stepping stone to life-long success and a good cause to celebrate. The school was one of four collegiates at the time, with the others being Nutana, City Park and Tech. “Bedford Road had a huge impact on what I became in life,” said Al Anderson, who at the age of 21 became an independent businessman and built a sporting goods empire which still exists People today under the name of Al Anderson’s Source for Sports. “I played basketball, I sang and I was involved. I always remembered the school song, with that zip in the last line about The Spirit of Bedford Road. I was thankful that I caught a piece of that spirit. We learned to face challenges, issues and sometimes a crisis. We learned to point ourselves in the right direction,” Anderson said. Henrietta Goplen played basketball and got deeply hooked on speedskating as a competitor, coach, administrator, historian and mother of Gary and Gordon, who competed internationally. “I came out of the MacKay family, where four brothers went to Bedford Road before me, and that was a different challenge,” she said. “We lived in a time when our parents, just coming off Depression days, wanted a good education for their children. It wasn’t a matter of whether we wanted it or not, it was a matter of needing it. We developed a faith in our teachers, who were so anxious for the students to do well and they contributed to our personal development as much as they did to our education.”

I’m not good at conference calls

he only thing I like less than talking to people face to face is talking with them in a group situation on the telephone. When I was at The StarPhoenix, I had a couple of conference calls built into my weekly schedule, and then an additional daily call as I neared the end of my rope. Most of the people on the “editors’ call” were friendly, but a couple were pompous and condescending. They made Mike Duffy seem warm and cuddly. I admit they were far, far more intelligent than me. They could talk in more syllables than I can count. A man named Scott would lead the call. He was always late. Here’s how the calls might go: Editor “Hello Montreal. What are you working on this week?’’ “Hello Scott. We are working on a tip that the Canadiens are moving to Seattle.’’ “Very good. Will we have it for weekend editions?’’ “How about you people in Ottawa?’’ “Hello Scott. We are chasing CTV on Senate spending and chasing the Toronto Star on Rob Ford.’’ “Good. Way to stay on top of the news.’’ “How about Edmonton? . . . Wait, I skipped over Saskatchewan.’’ “Hello Scott. We have a major sinkhole on Eighth Street.’’ (Laughter and snickering on the phone. “Sinkhole? Did he say sinkhole?” I grew to dislike a guy named Martin. He was the No. 1 snickerer.) “Have your page views gone up? Saskatoon is at the bottom of the country in page views.’’ “Yes, Scott, we are running more photo galleries of NFL cheerleaders. To me, the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders don’t measure up with the Philadelphia Eagles this year.’’ (On cue, Martin would begin to chortle again. “Did he really say sinkhole?”) I tried everything I could to avoid these calls. Doctors, dentists, vets, shrinks. I eventually figured out Scott didn’t really care what we were working on. When my turn came, I would simply say, “we have nothing to report.” The reason I bring this up is because I participated in a conference call last week with Graham DeLaet. I would guess there were eight of us on the call.

CAM HUTCHINSON

Graham DeLaet is co-chair of the Dakota Dunes Open (Photo courtesy of PGA Canada) We dialed a number, then pushed *1 to ask questions. Graham is an outstanding PGA Tour golfer from Saskatchewan (for those of you not familiar with what is printed on sports pages.) And a good guy. While the call included media from around the country, I was interested in what Graham had to say about being the honorary chair for the upcoming PGA Tour Canada Dakota Dunes Open. The tournament runs from July 4 to July 7. Please get out and support it. Despite various changes in affiliation, the tour was Graham’s springboard to his being on the PGA Tour and earning almost $1 million so far this year. The call brought back old, unpleasant feelings. I get tongue-tied and would much prefer to have 10 minutes of Graham’s time alone. Scott’s voice was ringing in my ears. I could hear Martin chortling. Some people on these calls always seem self-important. Real or imagined. They ask intellectual questions in an intellectual way. Unlike me, they are polished reporters. “Hello, Graham, I’m Ronald James Andrew Snyder II from Toronto and I have won three national newspaper awards. I’m sure it’s a pleasure for you to talk to me.” I wanted to ask Graham things Ronald James Andrew Snyder II of Toronto wouldn’t. I wanted to have some fun, with the hope of making it a better read for you. I wanted to ask Graham what is it like playing in tournament’s with Tiger Woods and beating him. Does he think Sergio Garcia is a knob? What does Phil Mickelson look like naked? When my turn came, I almost forgot Graham’s name. I almost called him Lee

Trevino for heaven’s sake. I decided to ask him my style of questions and to hell with Ronald James Andrew Snyder II of Toronto. Me: Hello Graham. Congratulations on your success. I am wondering what you might have been thinking on Sunday when you were watching the U.S. Open and saw what happened to Steve Stricker on the second hole. (Stricker went out of bounds twice and had an eight on the hole, effectively knocking him out of the race.) Graham: Yeah, I did see it. The first thing you see, even from a professional standpoint, but from anyone who watches golf, is you realize that everyone that plays on the PGA Tour, no matter how good a player they are, we’re all human and we all make mistakes. It was tough to see Strick go through that because he is a great player and searching for that first major. It’s like anything; you don’t want to see a guy hit two balls out of bounds on the same hole, no matter if you are playing against him or not. Tough to see, but he handled it pretty well and fought back the rest of the day and that showed what a true professional he is. Me: Can we talk a bit about wardrobe? Do you think your mother would let you out of the house with some of the things you wear? Graham: (laughing) I do enjoy dressing a little bit edgy. The guys at Sligo Wear have been awesome to me over the last couple of years and it has been a great partnership. I like having a little bit of fun with it. I know it is maybe not classic golf attire. Me: Thank you. Somewhere, Martin is still chortling about the sinkhole on Eighth Street.

Michael Franti Saskatoon a second home

M

Joelle Tomlinson Saskatoon Express

ichael Franti knows Saskatoon intimately. He’s run along its riverbanks, biked the streets of the downtown core, done yoga off Broadway and eaten in the middle of the night at Meg’s Restaurant on Third Avenue. His Saskatoon girlfriend, nurse and designer Sara Agah, is there every step of the way. The socially-conscious musician rocked the SaskTel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival with his opening show last year. He returns this year to wrap it all up. “I’m super grateful to be able to come back to Saskatoon because I’ve gotten to know it, the community and the people,” said Franti. “It’s awesome that I get to come back there and play again two years in a row. I feel so lucky. The community there has been super supportive and I feel really at home with the Plains provinces. I love the people, the climate, what the land looks like, so it’s just great.” Franti will return to the Bessborough Gardens mainstage on June 30 with his band, Michael Franti & Spearhead. He is known for his energetic, upbeat performances that often hold to the themes of being yourself, accepting others and being socially aware in this world. The performance times well with the upcoming release of his eighth album, All People. “This album is all about celebration of diversity and equality and there’s a lot of new style in the music on this record for us. It’s a combination of electronic music and dance music and acoustic guitar,” he said. “There are many songs that I wrote about Sara on this record. And it’s my favourite record I’ve ever made. “I think the main reason I love it is I spent more time developing the songs to be what I want them to be; I wrote over 30 songs for this record and we chose about 15 songs for the deluxe edition. We developed those songs over the last couple years of touring, playing them live and then going back in and re-recording them and really making them musically what I

The song made its way onto the Top 5 on the AAA chart, marking Franti’s fourth Top-10 song in his career. “I was working in the studio with this producer named Adrian Newman. We’d been writing a bunch of songs and I said, ‘You know, what I really feel this record needs is a song that sounds like a bunch of people just strumming acoustic guitars and playing the tambourine and shouting a melody together, like whoa-oh-ah-oh-oh! “And people can sing along. And people can just be themselves, just feeling free to jump around and be freaky and free. I started writing the verses to the song after we had all the melodies and whistling. But I didn’t have any words to the song. I started singing the line, ‘Everybody

wants me to be who they want me to be except you, all I want to do is be with you.’ In the world, people have these expectations of you to be a certain way, but all of us just want to be that authentic self and be the person who we really are. Sometimes, we’re lucky enough to find somebody in our life, a partner who brings that out in us and loves us just for being the person that we are.” I’m Alive (Life Sounds Like) and other fresh new songs in the All People record will be premiered for Saskatoon festivalgoers, along with old favourites such as Say Hey (I Love You), Sound of Sunshine and Everybody Deserves Music. The constantly-smiling, barefoot and dreadlocked musician plans on coming to Saskatoon a few days before his performance. This more relaxed summer schedule is a rarity for Franti, who has been on the road for almost his entire career. Mi-

chael Franti & Spearhead will kick off the first leg of their All People Tour on Sept. 4 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In total, he will hit 24 North American cities, finishing Oct. 12 in Los Angeles. “You deal with every aspect when you tour: your clothes, the lighting, the video aspect, how we are going to interact with the audience. And then you get onstage and you let that all go,” he said. “You want to forget about it and break the mold so with every show it’s fresh. I can’t wait to bring that to Saskatoon. I’m so blessed to come back. “(Sara and I) will be hanging around Saskatoon. Don’t be shy; come and say hello,” he added with a laugh.

making its way through the building, even though building was made mostly out of bricks. I was taking notes and the camera operator was shouting the scene. A bystander came over and said he was sure he saw someone waving from the top-floor window. I asked the camera operator to zoom in on the window. We waited for a few seconds and sure enough we saw a small hand waving. I quickly pointed this out to the commander of the firefighting crew. He peeked through the camera lens and he, too, saw the small hand. He ordered two of his men to put on those silver uniforms, along with masks and oxygen tanks. The two walked into the building like nothing. It seemed like forever, but it was only a few minutes later when they came running out of the building. One of them was holding a silver blanket. Wrapped inside the blanket was a five-year-old boy who was quickly taken to a waiting ambulance. He had only minor

smoke inhalation and was able to recover. It was one of the bravest things I have ever seen. Of course, if you bring this up to any firefighter they would say they were only doing their job. It was the same thing when they rescued me off a tree. They were only doing their job. I had climbed high into a spruce tree and was too scared to come down. I hung tightly to the tree as it swayed back and forth. I heard the siren and saw the fire truck coming. I was looking to see if I could spot the fire. Then the truck headed toward the tree. I could see people gathering to look at this stupid kid who was stuck on top of a tree. It was so embarrassing, especially when a story and a photo appeared in the paper. The headline said: Fire department rescues boy. But the photo didn’t show me, only the firefighter climbing the ladder. And they didn’t publish my name. Lucky for me. KNOSKYE2012@live.com

But with Circle in the Centre Theatre in the late 1960s, he played opposite some film favourites, such as Ann B. Davis in Everybody Loves Opal and Lon Chaney Jr. in Of Mice and Of Men. “One night with Lon, I lost my lines, but he patiently got me back on track. Off the stage, I expected to get a tonguelashing. All he said was, ‘One night, I might not remember a line and you’ll get me through it’. A few nights later, it happened. I helped him. After we came off stage, he said, ‘There, we’re even now.’ What an experience to work with an actor with his credentials,” said Stilling.

He has developed an international following for prints and cards, with particular joy coming from what he calls the cool atmosphere at the New Orleans Jazz festival. As well, Boomhower remembers visiting Gordie Brandt, the legendary Saskatoon guitarist, and asking about the arrival of Klassen into the esteemed jazz circles. To which Brandt replied, “Bobby can play any song, in any key and at any time.” Klassen has not only lived up to Brandt’s evaluation, but has enriched Saskatoon’s music scene for the decades since.

Shave for the Brave

SASKATOONEXPRESS - June 24-30, 2013 - Page 7

Woman raises $31,000 for fight against childhood cancer

H

Joelle Tomlinson Saskatoon Express

alf of Tegan Lyster’s life has been getting “poked.” That’s how mom, Jenn Lyster, describes the two-anda-half years of chemotherapy treatments her daughter has gone through since being diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in August 2011.   “Your world just stops. And then it proceeds to crumble,” said Lyster. “I knew when the doctor came to tell us. He said, ‘It’s what we didn’t want it to be.’ But until he actually said the word leukemia, I didn’t want to believe it. You have to pick up and go; you immediately turn to survival mode. A lot of it has been a blur, especially those first few months.”  Tegan, a bright, blonde and bubbly girl who likes to proudly show off her decorated splints — her hips and joints have weakened from the chemotherapy — treats the hospital like a second home.  “From the beginning, we just told her that her blood was sick. But it’s almost all she’s ever known. She has taken pills since she was two . . . imagine that, a two-yearold swallowing pills,” said Lyster. “She’s grown up with it and matured with it; it’s all she’s going to remember from her early childhood, I would think.”  After Tegan’s diagnosis, Lyster took to the Internet to find support groups and other moms going through similar situations. She stumbled across 46mommas.com last fall and jumped in headfirst. The 46 Mommas name is inspired by a scary statistic: on average, 46 children in the United States are diagnosed with cancer each weekday. The intent of the group is to raise $1 million for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation to help fund lifelong cures of childhood cancer. Each year a new class of 46 Mommas

is inducted into the cause, and 2013 is Lyster’s inaugural year. She is one of five Canadian Mommas in the group. “Being a cancer mom, I was always looking for support groups or just other moms going through the same thing,” said Lyster. “When 46 Mommas put out the call for 2013, I signed up. So, along with three other Canadian moms, I will be going San Antonio for an event the Mommas do called Shave for the Brave.” This is the fourth annual Shave for the Brave. The Mommas of 2013 have raised more than $116,000. Lyster has raised $31,000 to date, making her one of the highest individual contributors to the cause. On June 30 in San Antonio, Lyster will shave her head in honour of Tegan and the fight against childhood cancer.  “This fundraising will go on until the end of the year,” said Lyster. “I sent out emails, I did a steak night, some good friends planned a carnival that brought in over $8,000. Every little dollar counts and it goes directly to Childhood Cancer Canada, which funds research happening here in Canada, helping our little survivors. Who knows, it could be these dollars that do it.”  Tegan will be going into kindergarten next year, and will finish her chemotherapy in October. Childhood leukemia has a particularly long treatment protocol; girls are treated for about two-and-a-half years, boys for around three years. Doctors aim to force the cancer into remission through intensive treatment within the first month of diagnosis.  Shaving her head doesn’t scare Lyster. What does scare her is what’s up next for little Tegan.  “I’m counting down the weeks,” said Lyster. “It’s also very scary too, because as much as it’s been her life for the last two years, it’s also been ours.

learn to read and write in the language of their new and wonderful country. I recall a conversation between my father and my grandfather about the first old-age pension cheque that Grandpa received. He could not understand why the government would give him money. He saw himself as a man of substance since he had land, food and a family. He never knew he was a dirt-poor farmer living (by today’s financial standards) at the poverty level. It was two short generations ago when these new Canadians viewed their citizenship as offering opportunity in exchange for hard work. Many of today’s new Ca-

nadians hold that same view. Those of us who are fortunate to claim our citizenship through birth would do well to emulate the lessons of these pioneers. This Canada Day, I say thank you to my grandparents for starting our family in this new land, for instilling a work ethic in their offspring and encouraging us to follow our dreams for a better life. Because of them, July 1 is not the only day to celebrate being Canadian. But it is a day to appreciate and enjoy with one another the blessings of our citizenship. Happy Canada Day fellow Canadians! ehnatyshyn@gmail.com

Soap does wonders for smells in vehicles

D

ear Reena, I needed to replace a vehicle and my husband was kind enough to do the search and find one that is in much better repair. But the new vehicle smells of cigarette smoke and possibly pets. The cigarette smell is the primary concern because I don’t find it easy to tolerate with my mild allergies. I don’t know how to get it out. Help! — Sarah

To sanitize the butcher block, combine 1 part white vinegar into a spray bottle with 4 parts water. Spray and leave for 10 minutes. Wipe. When the time comes to oil the butcher block, food-grade mineral oil is recommended. This prevents wood from smelling rancid over time. A butcher block is beautiful and durable, and can last for many years if cared for properly.

The amazing life of Wayne Bradford

ecently, I saw an obituary in the Saskatoon StarPhoenix and stopped to read it, even though I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the man. Why? The man had a timber wolf licking his face! Reading through James Wayne Bradfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obituary, I was struck at how rich, how storied and how amazing this Saskatchewan manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life was. And a truly Saskatchewan man he was â&#x20AC;&#x201D; born in 1932 in Carrot River, once the Hudson Bay Company post manager at Wollaston Lake and living in our province his entire life. Consider these excerpts from Bradfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obituary: â&#x20AC;˘ After school he became a Columnist lumberjack. â&#x20AC;˘ When he was 20, he met Jean Jackson and they married in 1952. Their honeymoon was spent at a fire watch tower at Thunder Mountain. High in the sky, with a view for miles over the heart of Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s northern boreal forest. How romantic is that? Wayne became notorious for his ability to tame wild animals, and had two wolverines, two bears, four timber wolves, as well as many other wildlife, all living in their yard. You know, most of us would stop at one pet timber wolf. But four? Two wolverines? Have you met a wolverine? This guy was amazing. Mind = blown. The picture of Bradford with the timber wolf was snapped in his Saskatchewan home by a Time magazine photographer. The picture ran in a mid-1950â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s edition of the iconic magazine with the caption, â&#x20AC;&#x153;One JW10899.F24 got wilder, one got tamer.â&#x20AC;? Apparently, the

TAMMY ROBERT

James

photographer was initially unimpressed with the notion of a sitting unprotected indoors with a timber wolf snuffling around his feet. Bradford reassured the photographer that the wolf, named Chief, was tame, demonstrating the point by calling the wolf over to take a piece of meat out of his mouth. The photographer had his camera on his lap and snapped the picture without lifting the camera. Bradfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter Kathy said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;As children growing up, we were allowed to bring any orphaned or injured animals home to care for including fox, snakes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I who have smelled wood smoke by twilight. I who have traveled northern trails. I who caress the wild flower and hear the coyotes wails. I who trap the beaver when the cold frost bites. I who play my music on the lonely northern nights. Ever mindful of creation, being protective when I can. Watch closely for my footprints -Â for I shall not pass this way again.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Wayne Bradford

skunks, hawks or any animal in need.â&#x20AC;? Can you imagine growing up in this house? More from Bradfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obit: â&#x20AC;˘ ... then relocated to a farm near Saskatoon, where they had 500 Charolais cattle. â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;Ś had a trap line by Torch River. â&#x20AC;˘ ... became a member of a traditional Celtic band, Siamsa, who played together into the early 2000s. (Wayne would have been in his 60s when he joined this band). â&#x20AC;˘ ... he managed to stay self-sufficient until the last few months.

Wayne Bradford with Chief in the mid-1950s (Photo Submitted)

In the 1950s, Bradford learned to speak Cree, and could do so until the day he died. The people with the most influence in my life have shared with me that they found their lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s purpose when they began focusing on the legacy they are leaving their children. Not a monetary legacy, but one full of love, memories and guidance.  In an email from Bradfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son Matthew, he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;(His father) was always seen as a gentlemen and protective of those he thought needed it. People gravitated to him because of his calm leadership â&#x20AC;Ś he could be trusted to do the right thing and stand up for what was right.â&#x20AC;? On Bradfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relationship with nature, his Matthew Bradford said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;He taught me and others in my family that nature, especially animals, are to be respected and protected. He never saw himself as superior to animals, but respected them as fellow creatures that he wanted to share his time and love with â&#x20AC;&#x201D; this was the key to great success in dealing with wildlife.â&#x20AC;? For me, this line in Bradfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obituary was the most poignant: Bradford died at home in the arms of

his daughter, who took her 83-year-old father into her home for those last few months when her lumberjack, wolf-taming, Celtic-band-playing dad was no longer self-sufficient. Wayne Bradfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obit was not a grocery list of awards, club memberships and corporate distinctions. Instead, it had a simple and beautiful Saskatchewan storyline running through it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a northern Saskatchewan lumberjack then centralSaskatchewan cattle farmer who worked hard, raised a family (and a few wolves) and died in the arms of his offspring. Now that is what I call a life. To Wayneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family (who I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sorry you lost your dad so close to Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day. What a dad he was.

t almost 50 years old, the legendary musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat continues to wow audiences with its extraordinary music and timeless theme of forgiveness. These are just a few reasons the Saskatoon Summer Players are pleased to be bringing the performance back to Saskatoon, with a 10-day run at the Remai Arts Centre. From June 28 to July 7, a cast of more than 60 performers will present the vivacious musical, complete with a live orchestra performing the countrywestern, calypso, bubble-gum pop and rock ‘n’ roll tunes created by legendary musicaltheatre composer Andrew Lloyd Weber, with lyrics by Tim Rice. Saskatoon Summer Players is a community-based, nonprofit organization with a mission dedicated to quality musical theatre in our city. From its first production (Oklahoma) in 1964, the Summer Players has presented one main-stage musical in late June/early July every year since. They are a mainstay in the Saskatoon performingSS50464.F24 arts community and with its Shannon audiences.

(Photo by Mike Diakuw) Saskatoon performer Dean Swan is no stranger to the musical stage, with a background in musical theatre that includes the Saskatchewan Express, and Disney Cruise Lines. Swan, who plays lead character Joseph in this production, is proud to be joining the Saskatoon Summer Players for the first time and in such an exciting role. “I had to audition for the role,” said Swan. “I decided to go for it after my kids convinced me to give it a try. I’ve performed in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat once already, at my local church — Grace Westminster United. I’m excited to now be bringing the role to the big stage. “Forgiveness is a powerful aspect of the show,” he said, pointing and has a message he hopes audiences take away from the performance. The musical tells the Biblical tale of Joseph, a boy gifted with prophetic dreams and who is his father’s favourite son. When Joseph is given a coat of many colours,

his brothers are gripped by jealousy and sell him into slavery. He is taken to Egypt, where a series of events lead him to become the Pharaoh’s right-hand man. It’s not long before Joseph’s brothers are begging at his feet; the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. Thus, the question of forgiveness finds an answer. “The music is amazing, as everyone I’m sure already knows,” said Swan. “The cast is wonderful. I can’t believe how good the children performers are for their age. With 60 performers in the cast, practices have sometimes been difficult, but it’s come together beautifully.” Dennis Beerling is directing the production, while Kelly Brophy is the producer. The musical director is Jennifer Rommens. For tickets, call 306-384-7727. Tickets are also available at the Remai Arts Centre box office or at www.saskatoonsummerplayers.ca.

- Dakota Dunes Golf Links GM

The Dakota Dunes Golf Links will host the Dakota Dunes Open, part of the PGA Tour Canada, from July 1-7th. With golfers from Canada, Japan, Korea, the United States and Australia among the competitors vying for the $150,000 purse, Golf Links General Manager McLaren Taylor says that past participants have “loved the course, they love the links style. It’s a great course for shooting some low scores.” He adds that the top five players from the PGA Tour Canada will go on to compete for one million dollars on the Web.Com PGA Tour. Golf course staff are busy “firming up the greens and lowering the cut” for the tournament, and fans of the sport are encouraged to come out and watch these top level players close up. Day passes are available at pickatick.com, and for those who want a more up-close experience, Taylor says volunteers and caddies are needed. Those interested in volunteering can do so by filling out one of the volunteer or caddie application forms found at www.dakotadunes.ca/pga-tour-canada

Art placement Gallery Tammy Robert Saskatoon Express

changing owners

A

rt Placement has been a cornerstone of the arts community in Saskatoon since the 1970s. Located in downtown Saskatoon, (or “down the alley” between Third and Fourth avenues and 20th and 21st streets) in the Traveller’s Block Annex, the supply, framing and gallery company known as The Gallery / art placement Inc. is about to change ownership. After 35 years, Bonnie Bentham and Robert Christie, as well as long-time manager, Jonathan Forrest, are retiring from the business. They couldn’t be happier to be passing the baton to current and former employees Levi Nicholat and Donald Roach. “I’ve been working at Art Placement for four years,” said Nicholat. “Over those years, while getting to know Bob and Bonnie and building a good relationship with them, it became apparent they were ready to sell.” When Bentham and Christie floated the idea of taking over the business with Nicholat and Roach, a former Art Placement employee, it felt too good to be true. “It’s the sort of thing I would dream about becoming possible,” said Nicholat. “Then all of a sudden, everything fell into place. The opportunity landed in our laps and we made it happen.” Nicholat and Roach will take over the company and continue the operation of all three departments — the gallery, frame shop and art supplies. “The gallery’s focus is almost exclusively on established Saskatchewan artists — those living and working in Saskatchewan, or who have roots in the province,” said Nicholat. “Our gallery includes abstract and landscape painting, and some sculpting. Everything is tied back in some way to Saskatchewan.” The gallery presents a yearround exhibition schedule with alternating solo and group exhibitions that rotate every three weeks. In an email, the former owners thanked everyone who “participated in the development of the company and in particular to the exceptional group of staff members, artists and clients that made the business what it is.” With a small, tightly-knit arts group in Saskatchewan, Nicholat and Roach will continue to rely on and maintain their close relationwithMorrison that community, 2ships by 22 Spec many Lisa

Cowardly way out of relationship

D

ear Lianne, My girlfriend of eight months broke up with me last week. We have been having stupid little arguments. I finally figured out that I am partially at fault. I have been defensive, instead of acknowledging her feelings. I feel I can fix the problem by using a different approach. How would you suggest I deal with this? I would have liked to have married this girl. — Brian Dear Brian, It is great you feel you have the clarity to see the problem and the solution in this relationship. I would suggest asking her to get together with you to discuss your feelings and ideas. You can explain your problem-solving technique and suggest that you try to work on the relationship. If she decides that she does not want to carry on, then you Relationships must cut your losses and use your new-found knowledge for your next relationship. Good luck to you. Dear Lianne, I’ve been seeing this girl for over a year now. All of a sudden, she accepted a job 2 1/2 hours away. She never talked to me about it. She just did it. I thought, “OK, we’ll make it work.” Now she is telling me she needs a break. Another factor is her 24year-old son won’t talk to her if she dates anyone. He feels she and his dad should be together. What do you think? We’re not kids. I am in my 50s. — Don Dear Don, This doesn’t sound much like a relationship to me. A life-altering decision should be discussed by both people in the relationship. It sounds as if the writing is on the wall, and she is not interested in a relationship with you. It is also a shame that she is being controlled by her adult son. It does not make sense for you to attempt to salvage this one-sided relationship. Having someone tell you they need a break is a cowardly way to say they want to end the relationship. Lianne Tregobov is a matchmaker and the owner of Camelot Introductions. She will be in Saskatoon interviewing potential clients on June 19.

Saskatoon well positioned for future growth

askatoon is seeing unprecedented highs in housing starts, this according to Alan Thomarat, President and CEO of the Saskatoon and Region Home Builder’s Association. “Last year (2012) we had our highest starts in over 30 years,” he says, adding that with over 10,000 new dwellings built in that time, Saskatoon and region accounted for 40 per cent of provincial starts. Not only is this growth rate leading the nation, but Thomarat says with numbers like these, he expects to see Saskatoon reach a population of half a million by 2020. Beyond that, Thomarat thinks it is possible for our city to reach 1.5 million by 2030. To put this into perspective in terms of how other western Canadian have grown over the years, Thomarat explains that “Calgary had the population that Saskatoon does in 1962. It took them 20 years to get to their present day population of 1.2 million. In the same amount of time, Saskatoon

Thomarat acknowledges that there are challenges with finding enough labour, but at the same time says “I think we need to not take those challenges for granted. We need to look at them as offering opportunities, opportunities to increase our labour force permanently, which will in turn strengthen our economy and lead to a demand for more housing. It is all cyclical.” And according to Thomarat, “SREDA has been instrumental in helping to capitalize on those opportunities. They attract investors to the city, as well as courting labourers and growing our employment base and our manufacturing sector to ensure sustainable growth.” It is especially gratifying to Thomarat to know that “kids from Saskatoon can grow up here, get educated here, and then find work and raise their own families here. Saskatoon and Saskatchewan have waited a long time for this, and we deserve it.”

could surpass that number.” Thomarat says that the starts are “fairly evenly split between single and multi-family dwellings, with an increasing trend for new couples to start off in apartments or condos, and then graduate to town homes and single family houses as they add to their families. Consumers still want to be able to choose from all the options.” With everything, Thomarat credits the City of Saskatoon with having a “clear plan for growth” for the city. After first dealing with an issue with land availability in 2007, the City, SRHBA the Chamber of Commerce and SREDA and other regional partners “have worked collaboratively to come up with a plan to supply the area with 10,000 new homes every three years.” These plans include dealing with the inevitable issues of geology, design work, surveying and drainage with an “environmentally sensitive strategy.”

City of Saskatoon has balanced approach to development

he City of Saskatoon has a plan to keep up with the growth it is experiencing. General Manager of Commercial Services Randy Grauer says that city planning is carried out by “maintaining certain ratios depending on population growth. We like to plan in increments of at least 50,000 people at a time.” In terms of retail area, Grauer says, as Saskatoon has a retail grade of an A or a B, the aim is 40 square feet of retail space per person, and adds that an incremental area of 50,000 people would include plans for a shopping centre style neighbourhood retail space. Commercial space for regional shopping centres, like Preston Crossing or Stonebridge, is “set aside as the city grows.” Grauer adds that the city’s commercial business philosophy centres around a strong downtown. “Our downtown is still a very desirable and attractive place to be and do business, and we have made deliberate steps to keep it that way.” Grauer gives the example of Galaxy Cinemas. “Normally, a big theatre like that would go in a shopping mall on the outskirts of the city. But we convinced them to build downtown, and it has been very successful.” He says that Saskatoon also has a good international reputation. “Even though we do have some

planned has changed over the past number of years, according to Grauer. “Suburbs used to be built with the idea of conformity in mind. Everything looked kind of the same, and you had to drive to get anywhere.” Nowadays, Grauer says, “younger homebuyers are looking for more. Diversity is more celebrated now. When people are looking to buy a home, they are asking themselves ‘how many interesting places are within walking or biking distance from my home?’” Grauer points to City Park as a long-standing example of one of these more diverse neighbourhoods. “City Park has always had a great amount of variety in the types of housing and people living there, and as a result, for more than 100 years, it has been a vital and resilient neighbourhood.” The obstacles in terms of labour and prices, we newer communities of Saskatoon are being planned with a similar, are cognizant of those obstacles, and are vibrant, structure. constantly working to remove them.

Saskatoon offers many opportunities for Alberici Western Constructors

B

ased in St. Louis, Missouri, Alberici Western Constructors is a highly diversified industrial North American construction company known for construction management and construction itself. Alberici moved into the Canadian market with the 1997 purchase of Hamilton based Robertson-Yates Corporation Limited. Soon after, Alberici opened their first Canadian office in Burlington, ON. In 2011, the company opened their second Canadian office in Saskatoon, adding to already established branches in Detroit, Michigan, Atlanta, Georgia, Topeka, Kansas and Leon, Mexico. AWCL Canada President Craig Fesler says that Saskatoon is â&#x20AC;&#x153;attractive because of the

amount of opportunities in the market. There are already good competitors in place, but there is also room for new companies to exist. It seemed like the right place, and place from where we could just as easily take our resources and products across North America as it would be to work on local projects.â&#x20AC;? In particular, adds Fesler, from an economic standpoint, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Saskatoon is one of the few places in North America with a significant enough number of overtime hours being worked on projects to attract labour. The low unemployment and migration of workers from other provinces makes this a robust area to do business.â&#x20AC;? Fesler also feels like Alberici is a good fit

with Western Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strong resource, an area that the company has experience doing business with in the past. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are quite a conservative company in that we like to stick to specializing in a few niche markets, and resources is one of those areas. We like to understand our markets and then use that knowledge to execute and participate to the highest level.â&#x20AC;? As it stands now, AWCL employs 300 people in the province, and has projects in the resource, power and waste water areas throughout Western Canada, including the SaskPower Boundary Dam in Estevan and the oil sands in Northern Alberta. So far, Fesler and Alberici have been

impressed with the owners, suppliers and subcontractors he has encountered in Saskatoon, calling them â&#x20AC;&#x153;fair and straightforward.â&#x20AC;? He is also impressed with organizations like SREDA that help create the most positive business environment they can for newcomers such as Alberici. And as AWCL works to further establish themselves and continue to â&#x20AC;&#x153;make an impact on the market,â&#x20AC;? Fesler adds that it is important to Alberici to also become good corporate and community citizens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We like to be quite generous to schools and charitable organizations. We plan on being here for a long time, so we plan to do what we need to do to fit into this community.â&#x20AC;?

Demand continues to be high for Commercial Real Estate

ommercial real estate â&#x20AC;&#x153;is in a very strong position in Saskatoon,â&#x20AC;? says Tom McClocklin of Colliersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Real Estate. Our vacancy rate is low, and we have stable to rising rental prices for retail, office and industrial spaces.â&#x20AC;? Of the three, the industrial sector leads the way, having seen â&#x20AC;&#x153;tremendous growth in the last few years, with 500,000 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 800,000 square feet of new space added each year.â&#x20AC;? All told, Saskatoon now has over 22 million square feet of commercial space. McClocklin adds that the growth has been â&#x20AC;&#x153;steady and stable. The rental market is constant, and available spaces are quickly absorbed into the market. And many spaces are being built with tenants already in mind.â&#x20AC;? Retail developments have also increased greatly over the past ten years, with new retail parks built at Preston Crossing, Stonebridge, University Heights, and the Blairmore Suburban Centre. Recently, the City of Saskatoon re-zoned a

JW10949.F24 James

parcel of land at Preston and Circle drive to enable the development of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next retail park in that area. And as the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population continues to increase and become more affluent, McClocklin says that demand for retail space will continue to grow along with the demand for housing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Homes come first, and then retail space. The city usually plans these areas out ten years in advance.â&#x20AC;? Pointing to the latest phase of commercial development in University Heights, and the corner of Attridge and McOrmond Drive, McClockin explains that those phases are planned with a three year building timeline in mind. Although growth has been stable and steady, McClocklin says there have been challenges. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, the biggest challenge has been finding skilled contractors and sub-contractors. But because we now have one of the highest industrial lease rates in Canada, we are also operating in a high cost environment,

so we have to educate potential renters and leasers why that is the case, and why it is still very worthwhile for them to do business in Saskatoon.â&#x20AC;? According to McClocklin, having SREDA on board as a partner in attracting workers and investors to the city is an important factor in helping to convince tenants to lease property in Saskatoon. He further explains that another important selling point of the city to potential tenants and investors is our â&#x20AC;&#x153;strong, vibrant downtown. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have that many big office towers yet, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a particularly white collar area, but our downtown is doing extremely well. There is a stable rental market there, with a lot of long time businesses in place, and when new space becomes available, it is quickly leased. Our downtown is the envy of other cities.â&#x20AC;? And with the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growth pattern predicted to continue, McClocklin says that Saskatoonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commercial real estate market also looks poised to stay strong.

PGA Tour veteran adds lustre to

Dakota Dunes Open

T

Cam Hutchinson Saskatoon Express

he Dakota Dunes Open has added star power. The PGA Tour Canada has been a grooming ground for players on the PGA Tour. This year, Notah Begay III, a seasoned veteran of the PGA Tour will join developing players at the event. In addition to Begay, a four-time winner on the PGA Tour, Saskatchewan’s own Graham DeLaet has lent his name to the event as co-chair with Chief Darcy Bear of the Whitecap Dakota First Nation. “It very exciting news for us to have a high-profile player with name recognition for our tournament and somebody with his star power,” Hugh Vassos, executive chair of the tournament, said of Begay. “He is a close friend of Tiger Woods and currently working as a golf analyst for NBC and the Golf Channel, so we are excited that he is coming here for the entire week,” Vassos said. “He is going to play in the tournament, which is exciting and will attract a lot of people. He’s also going to do some community work for us

throughout the week thanks to our sponsor, Cameco.” Organizers are equally pleased DeLaet has lent his name and time to event. DeLaet, a native of Weyburn who often spends time in Saskatoon with his family, has won almost $1 million on the PGA Tour this year and has three top-10 finishes. He did a conference call last week with reporters to promote the PGA Tour Canada stop at Dakota. He credits the Canadian tour for his success on the PGA Tour. “It was a big part of my development as a player. Looking back, it helped me learn how to win out there even though I haven’t put that to the forefront on the PGA Tour; I’m hoping that is coming soon.” DeLaet says he is happy to give back to golf in his province. “It is definitely an honour, especially in my home province,” he said. “It is important to promote golf in the province, whether it be for charity or developing the game.” He said golf is more than winning tournaments and cashing cheques; tournaments like the Dakota Dunes Open and the charity event he hosts in Weyburn are

good ways to showcase the game, he said. “Most important was really to get kids involved, whether it is for them to develop into world-class players or getting golf scholarships or just enjoying the game; just getting kids out on the golf course and teaching them great things the game does – etiquette and honesty and integrity and all those kinds of things that go together. It is more than just the game of golf we want kids playing, it’s also blending all the small life lessons that go on around it. “I would love it when my name came up that people would say, ‘Here’s a guy that gives back to Saskatchewan and to golf.’ That’s as important to me as being a world-class player.” Vassos says DeLaet has been great for the tournament, both as a former player on the Canadian tour and now as an ambassador for it. “It means a lot to us because first of all he is very well known on the PGA Tour and he’s a Saskatchewan kid. That’s even more beneficial for us. For him to be talking to the media and doing the kinds of promotional things he is doing for the tournament is invaluable for us.” Vassos says the tournament’s new

affiliation with PGA Canada has been a blessing. “One of the biggest benefits is the marketing support that they provide from the PGA Tour. Things like arranging interviews with players that are on the PGA Tour and helping us secure someone of Notah Begay’s stature. “They have been running golf tournaments for a long, long time and nobody does it better. We have been reaping the benefits of their experience and their connections and their skills in presenting world-class events.” The tournament runs from July 4 to July 7 at Dakota Dunes. Organizers have made a concerted effort to make the tournament affordable, Vassos said. “We’ve held the line on ticket prices to $10 a day or $25 for the four days. We have put in a family package for Saturday – for $25 you can bring the entire immediate family. “So it gives people an opportunity to see golf up close and live. I think that is rare for people of this province. We want to make sure they can access it and enjoy what we think is going to be a most memorable golf experience.”

When I got back to Saskatchewan, the skin underneath my feet was so soft it actually cracked on me and my feet would bleed when I walked; so that is way behind me now. “I don’t have that type of discomfort and I don’t wake up in the middle of the night anymore with throbbing ankles and a lot of pain in my feet. That’s all done. Right now the only thing left is my heels hurt and not even all the time.’’ He’s doing yoga now so he will be back in shape and running again. Since returning, he has been doing some teaching, making presentations and working on a book about his experience.

Cam Hutchinson & Friends: Views of the World Playboy adds new wrinkle to milestone cover

• Torben Rolfsen, on the 100th Tour de France beginning June 29 on Corsica: “It features 100-per-cent certified drug-free competitors. The island will be the site of the first three stages for the eight-rider field.” • TC Chong, on Canadian Tire now having the naming rights to the Ottawa Senators arena: “So next season, when you fork out $20 for a beer and a hot dog, will you receive five cents in Canadian Tire money?” • Janice Hough, on a 22-year-old Australian man, who got in trouble last summer for wild and drunken behavior on a holiday weekend, asking a judge for three months in jail, instead of a two-year ban on drinking and going to bars: “Hmm. Have we found a soulmate for Lindsay Lohan?” • An American man has filed more than 2,600 lawsuits in various district courts. Jonathan Lee Riches is believed to be the most litigious individual in the history of mankind. Have those making this proclamation not heard of Tony Merchant?

• Bill Littlejohn, on a diver in Michigan locating a message in a bottle two young women sent nearly 100 years ago: “They were reportedly Cubs fans and the message read, ‘Wait ’til next year.’ ” • A passenger disrupted a Newarkbound flight, saying he poisoned others on the plane. What did he do, serve the food? • Note to Tweeting members of the Canadian sports media: We don’t care if the television in the press box isn’t working, we don’t care if noise in a hockey rink makes it hard for you to concentrate and we don’t care if you worked late and had an early-morning flight. • A Bosnian soccer goalie played an entire game after unknowingly being shot in the head. Talk about a shot on goal. • From Rolfsen: “It was odd enough that the NHL announced some major award winners at 5:30 p.m. on a Friday, but by a town crier in Times Square?” • A total of 90 per cent of the world’s ice is contained in the Antarctic. The other 10 per cent is in John Daly’s drinks. • From Hough: “The comedy gods

Super Bowl leads to crime ring

taketh away, and the comedy gods giveth. Iran elected a “moderate cleric” to replace President Ahmadinejad. But over on Fox News, Sarah Palin is back.” • Chong, on Sesame Street introducing a new character named Alex, whose dad is in jail: “No word on whether Alex’s last name is Ochocinco.” • Thirty-nine-year-old Kate Moss will pose nude to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Playboy magazine. “Why are we having an old lady on the cover?’’ Hugh Hefner asked his staff. • From Littlejohn: “Adam (Pacman) Jones is scheduled to address NFL rookies at their symposium. Next thing you’ll hear, is a group of brand new nuns being addressed by Lady Gaga.” • Here’s hoping the success of new Saskatoon Blades coach David Struch isn’t measured just in wins. • From Rolfsen: “America’s most elusive search: Jimmy Hoffa’s body or the Chicago Blackhawks’ power play?” • Chong, on the Los Angeles Dodgers playing an interleague doubleheader at Yankee Stadium last week: “They last

played there in 1981, when Vin Scully had just reached retirement age.” • Hough, on Ian Kennedy of the Arizona Diamondbacks saying his 10-game suspension for throwing at the heads of Yasiel Puig and Zach Greinke of the Los Angeles Dodgers doesn’t make sense: “He’s probably right. It should have been 30.” • Scientists have discovered that lobsters might have the potential to live forever. I’m thinking that puts lobsters in the same category as Larry King, Lloyd Robertson and Betty White. • Chong, on rumours San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich will go to Boston to replace Doc Rivers: “He’s a natural; think Boston Pops.” • A study found obesity in teenagers is tied to hearing loss. Of course it is. It’s hard to hear when you are constantly chewing. • A jury in Delaware acquitted a urologist is New Jersey who was being sued by a man claiming he was responsible for his eight-month-long erection. Nice the jury went soft on the doc.

By RJ Currie

• Three wedding gift suggestions for Washington Redskins pivot Robert Griffin III: 3. A PVR; 2. An SLR; 1. An ACL. • Reuters reports a London hotel is hoping its new house-of-horrors suite will draw customers with “sights and sounds that tease and torment guests.” Don’t laugh; it works for the Toronto Maple Leafs. • New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft claims the Russian president stole his Super Bowl ring? Is he Putin us on? • Is it just me, or did the first three games of the Stanley Cup final have more clutching and grabbing than a drive-in triple feature? • NBA champ LeBron James says he’s happy he could “leave everything on the floor.” Try that in my house and my wife will kill you. • A new study says as teenagers, our brains experience enormous pleasure from social acceptance, so “teens follow other teens like lemmings.” Unless one of them goes to a Miami Marlins game. • San Antonio’s Manu Ginóbili, invisible through four games of the NBA final, had a seasonhigh 24 points and 10 assists in Game 5. Talk about Spur of the moment! • The Mirror reports a man in Brighton, England, will share his home rent-free if his tenant dresses up daily as a walrus. Anyone else just think of Senators coach Paul MacLean? • Did I hear Tennessee Titans safety Bernard Pollard says their goal is the championship, and the “mission is to kill?” Super Bowl — maybe. Hyperbole — definitely. • Supermodel Kate Moss appears nude on a surfboard in a new ad for St. Tropez tanning lotion. Surf’s up, among other things. • The poet Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton once said it’s “not the prize that gives joy, but striving to win the prize.” I’m thinking the Chicago Cubs must be positively giddy. • Shanghai just finished hosting an international convention for scrap dealers. Even the NBA hasn’t had so much trash-talking. • Winnipeggers report terrible traffic tie-ups getting to the Bombers’ new stadium. There’s concern fans will be leaving games even earlier — some of them because of traffic. • Canadian model Leyla Ghobadi got $20,000 from Star Magazine for claiming she slept with Kanye West during Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy. In a related story, I’ve been sleeping with Kanye West. • The American Heart Association says walking is just as good as running in preventing cardiac illness among seniors. Good news for Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson; all those trips to the mound are paying off. • A new study by neurologists claims to be first evidence that by learning we generate new brain cells every day. I’m guessing the study didn’t include Pacman Jones. • I’ll end with this question: Is outfielder Mike Trout’s alma mater a school of Trout?

Phatboy Fireworks opens at Confederation Mall for Canada Day!

Phatboy Fireworks is opening their Saskatoon location on June 24th, just in time for the Canada Day! Located at Confederation Mall, Phatboy has a 60 foot trailer with five eight-feet long tables full of fireworks to meet your long weekend needs. Founded eight years ago, Phatboy now carries twenty different brands of fireworks, both individual fireworks and larger packages, and prides itself on its motto of “We Don’t Match Prices, We Beat’em.” Along with promising to meet or beat any competitor’s prices, Phatboy also has daily deals and door crasher prices and other promotions to ensure you are getting the best price. In fact, partner Harmin Gill says that “when you come into our locations, you’ll often find that our prices are lower than what was advertised in our own flyers.” Because Phatboy sells only fireworks, Gill says employees know their products, and are happy to give advice or even help to customize your firework display to fit your budget and your needs. You can do this by visiting the location, or by logging on to Phatboy’s website and

browsing the selection there phatboyfireworks.ca. Along with offering a best price guarantee, Phatboy also offers the best quality product for you. Unlike some other fireworks vendors, Phatboy’s fireworks have not “sat on a shelf, year after year, gathering dust.” Gill says that it is important to Phatboy to offer only new products to its customers. Phatboy’s Saskatoon location will be open prior to Canada Day at Confederation Mall from June 24 to July 1. If all goes well, Gill hopes that Saskatoon will become a permanent seasonal location for Phatboy, and will add the New Year’s Eve selling season of December 26 to December 31 to its schedule. Be sure to visit Phatboy Fireworks, and celebrate Canada Day with a bang!

he 2014 IS remains the class rebel of the Lexus fleet, which is great news for those who derive their driving kicks from compact luxury cars that are fleet of foot, strong of character and provide power to either the rear, or all four wheels. The main reason for the IS’s existence is to bait BMW 3-series, Audi A4 and MercedesBenz C-Class fans into switching teams. Toyota’s premium division has learned plenty from its previous two IS generations and now appears to be an even stronger contender with the new-for-2014 version. Compared to the unassuming 2013 model, the latest IS has sharpened its demeanor. Evolutionary updates include more centralIn front, the car exhibits a hunkered-down stance, aided by a more aggressive nose and ized controls, but with more space between what Lexus calls its “spindle” grille that sticks the front and rear wheels, the real benefit out from the crowd. Also visible is more defin- comes in the form of interior space. ing side sculpting extending along the lower body plus an integrated rear deck spoiler. These elements deliver a strong message that the IS means business, all the while portraying a close relationship with the bigger and equally sporty Lexus GS sedan that received similar styling cues for 2013. The IS, with its 20 per cent stiffer platform, has grown nearly nine centimetres in length with seven more centimetres between the front and rear wheels, while width and height increase only slightly. Rear-seat riders now benefit with a bit more leg and hip room, which was a drawback on the previous IS. All passengers will appreciate the more modernlooking cabin that is neatly trimmed out with more centralized controls, touch-sensitive switches and a console-mounted cursor-type knob for selecting various infotainment choices. Of particular note is that the back seat is now a 60:40 split-folding affair (doesn’t nearly every car Beneath the engine cover is the usual 2014 Lexus IS already offer this feature?), which increases the choice of six-cylinder engines.

The answer to a fuel crisis became a dream car for the masses.

After a run of more than 40 years, the Mini was reincarnated for 2003, carrying similar style and a similar mission. The racing world learned a valuable lesson from the Mini: that small size means light weight and go-kart like handling.

t’s a hard-to-believe reign that lasted decades, but the proof is definitely in the pudding. Or, in the fact that the Mini — although in a highly revised form —‑came back with a new body and a similar (but sportier) mission. When the car was launched in the late-1950s, it was supposed to be an answer to fears that the global supply of oil would be reduced to a trickle. It was 1956 during the Suez Crisis and Britain, along with a number of other countries, had succumb to gas shortages and invoked rationing. What was needed was a small car that was cheap to own and good on gas. That’s it, that’s all. Little did anyone know it would become the coolest car in the world — a fashion statement, the ultimate in front-wheel-drive chic and an icon — racking up sales that topped five million over a period spanning four decades. The first Mini rolled off the assembly line on Aug. 26, 1959 to rather lackluster reviews. The car was beset with a raft of problems, including water leaks, faulty clutches and transmissions. But the public loved the little box on wheels, which debuted under two names: Morris Mini Minor; and the Austin Seven (the British Motor Corporation owned both Morris and Austin brands). The two were sold side-by-side for a decade before the car simply became the Mini. This sales sensation was designed by the legendary Alec Issigonis — later to become Sir Alec — either on a napkin or a tablecloth. Take your pick. The idea was to design the smallest possible car that would hold four adults plus some luggage. It had to be economical to operate, yet fun to drive. Issigonis’s rough sketch turned out to be uncannily close to the real thing. And the radical “wheel-ateach-corner” design remained the same for decades. In a major departure from tradition, the car boasted front-wheel drive, a four-cylinder transversely mounted engine, rubber-sprung suspension, tiny 10-inch wheels and a gearbox mounted under the engine as part of the oil pan. The design allowed for compact external dimensions with an amazing amount of interior room. Shortly after its debut, the cheap-and-cheerful Mini came to the attention of famed race-car builder John Cooper, who immediately saw the potential for a sportier version of the car. Cooper had found success in Formula Three open-wheel racing in the early 1950s by building cars with the engine placed behind the driver, a revolutionary concept at the time. But many in the racing establishment doubted that the layout would work on the larger Formula One cars. The skeptics were silenced in 1958 when Stirling Moss drove a Cooper to victory in the Grand Prix of Argentina. It was the first World Championship win for a rear-engined car. Within three years, rear-mounted engines were the standard for all F1 cars, as is still the case today. Despite the glitz and glamour of Formula One, Cooper wanted to create a fun, sporty car for people on small budgets. In 1961 he convinced BMC to allow him to develop a performance-oriented version of the Mini called the Cooper and, eventually, three versions of the Cooper S were built, the most potent of which came with a 76-horsepower 1.3-litre engine. Base Minis came with less than half (34) the power from a tiny(er) 848-c.c. engine. All Coopers came with wider wheels and tires and disc brakes. For his efforts, Cooper was rewarded the princely sum of two British pounds (about $4) for each car sold.

If you wonder where the “Cooper” name comes from as it relates to Mini, John Cooper turned the little car into a racing contender. Cooper’s souped-up Mini was an instant success. It became a car for everyone from celebrities to the guy next door. Soon, entertainers Paul McCartney, John Lennon and Peter Sellers were driving the Cooper S. Even Queen Elizabeth II was photographed taking a spin. The car had become a must-have for the trendy, jet-setters of the Swinging ’60s. It didn’t hurt that the Mini was also an instant success as a race car, becoming the first British auto to win the European Rally championship and taking the checkered flag three times between 1964 and ’67 at the Monte Carlo Rally, which was run in the winter. Legendary Austrian racer Nicki Lauda drove a Mini to his first competition victory, as did Graham Hill and Ken Tyrell. In 1969, the Mini gained an even bigger cult following with the release of the movie The Italian Job (which starred Michael Caine and Noel Coward), when the little red, white and blue cars zoomed through the streets of Turin at death-defying speeds in a daring escape sequence in which robbers fled with a stash of gold bullion. By the early 1970s, Cooper’s association with the Mini was over. BMC had morphed into British Leyland Motors (1968), and the bean counters were hard at work adjusting the bottom line. The Cooper name was dropped in an effort to save a few quid. In 1990, Rover, which then owned the marque, made a valiant effort to re-launch the Mini Cooper and it continued production until October 2000 with little success. An era had come to a close, punctuated by the death of John Cooper on Christmas Eve that year. Playing on the rich history of the Mini, BMW secured the rights to both it and the Cooper name and resurrected the marque in 2003, designing it with the many of the same styling cues and engineering principles that made the original such a hit. From all indications, John Cooper would have approved.

Where do the Mustang and Camaro go after â&#x20AC;&#x153;retroâ&#x20AC;??

B

oth Ford and Chevrolet have to make a decision and it canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be an easy one. Where do they take the Mustang and Camaro next? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the kind of question that keeps executives staring at the bedroom ceiling at 3 a.m. trying to think of an answer. Other automakers have similar issues. BMW doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dare mess up its 3-series and if Porsche makes a misstep with the 911, there will be heck to pay. Chevrolet has to be careful with the Corvette, but that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to stop the company from making drastic changes. Perhaps that has to do with the fact that the current Corvette has been around for close to a decade, so you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really have anything other that drastic changes, hence the gorgeous new 2014 model. The Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro are different, though, because they are what I would call â&#x20AC;&#x153;full-circle cars.â&#x20AC;? Instead of progressing the brands in new directions, the two automakers chose to cherry-pick the best of the past and create modern interpretations. This is where the term â&#x20AC;&#x153;retroâ&#x20AC;? comes from. We got a very good taste of retro back in the late 1990s with the Volkswagen New Beetle. And although the Chrysler PT Cruiser and the Prowler werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t based on a given model from the past, they both pulled at our nostalgia heartstrings. There are others, but for Americans, the Mustang/Camaro loyalty is the stuff of fist fights. As these loyal buyers get on in age -- the people who might have owned a 1960s Mustang, or at least pined for one for decades -- Ford and Chevy are giving up younger buyers who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really connect with the originals upon which the new retro models are based. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really ironic when you consider that the originals really spoke to a generation of young buyers. So, I guess that leaves two problems, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it: where do you go after retro; and how do you interest younger (or just more) buyers when you do it. Chevrolet might know, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not sharing what the next Camaro will look like. Just to be clear, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve loved the current car since I first saw concept photos back in 2007, as well as the various models that have been unleashed over the years to keep it fresh, whether it be the convertible, the ZL1 or the upcoming Z/28. Ford has also been adding models to keep the Mustang fresh, from the Boss 302 to the GT 500 and it surely doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want a repeat of the 1974-â&#x20AC;&#x2122;78 Mustang II debacle -- a car viewed as vastly inferior to its predecessors -- so when it finally does break away from the retro theme, for the 2015 model year, it will have to do it in a big way. I suspect the logic goes something like the following. Since the 2005 retro Mustang was launched, there are literally hundreds of thousands of these cars on the road. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basi-

cally enough supply out there to keep the retro enthusiasts neck deep in cars for decades to come, while aftermarket companies can help them personalize their rides in whatever man-

JW10935.F24 James

One strike against a new Mustang (that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look like this Mustang) is that it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t likely ever top the GT 500â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 662 horsepower. It will need to be better in just about every other way to get respect as a Mustang, though. ner they like. Forever. If Ford steers clear of the classic look, which it fully intends to do, there will undoubtedly be cries from the faithful, so why do it? The obvious reason? Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more to gain than lose, or we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even be having this conversation. Sales were about 166,500 in 2006 and in 2012 . . . they were about half that. OK, so what will the new Mustang look like? The Evos concept car is sort of like a bunch of future cars all glued together, but the word is that it will provide the styling inspiration for the new Mustang. One of the things that Ford has to do, at least the way I see it, is build a car so good that the critics will look like bitter fools stuck in the old days if they come down on it. And if the Evos is any indication, the faithful might actually want the retro version as well as the new 2015 model. Now that would be an interesting business strategy. The Evos looks like a two-door car, but it actually has four and it also has a grille shape thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s similar to cars such as the Fusion sedan. The new Mustang will apparently still have a V8 option (which implies it will be a rear-wheel-drive car), but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen reports that there will also be a 350-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder as well as a base V6 engine. But the real question is what do you think, since you hold the keys? What should Ford and Chevy do?

A letter to NASCAR from my bladder It wasn’t easy, but I steadfastly remained in front of the TV, floating teeth and all, to watch NASCAR’s longest race, both in terms of distance traveled and in particular the time needed to complete it. A whopping five hours and 15 minutes later, not including an additional hour of incessant pre- and post-race babble, my mind was mush, my back ached from too much sitting and my bladder cried for mercy. Yes, this is my final Coca Cola 600 race, and quite possibly the last complete NASCAR race I’ll watch unless some drastic — and I do mean drastic — changes come about to make me happy. To that end, I humbly offer a few suggestions, some more comedic than others, to take away some of the pain: 1.) Good gosh, set time/ DISTANCE limits. I mean, I’ve had shorter family vacations than this with less need for bathroom breaks. Take a lead from Formula One where the races max out at two hours. So instead of fixed-lap races, NASCAR events would also all be on the clock. Thus the Daytona 500 would become the “Daytona 120 . . . Minutes” and so on. And, really, couldn’t the races be half the distance anyway? 2. Split the races in half: Hmm, how about running the first half in the traditional counterclockwise direction, BUT at the half-way mark following a mandatory pit stop, all competitors would make sharp U-turns after exiting the pit road and queue up in order for a clock-wise rolling restart (no blindfolds, eh). This would test each driver’s equilibrium — and car setups — as they adjust to making both left- and right-hand circuits of

Irreverence

the track. Of course the fans would love it . . . 3. Add water and stir: At some random point, sprinkler heads would pop up and soak the track. Yes, drivers would head for the pits to have wet-weather tires and wipers installed (eek, water!). This would also allow races to he held on — go figure — rainy days . . . just like Formula One. 4. Introduce co-drivers: I don’t mean have a driver and passenger in each race car (on second thought that might not be a bad idea). I’m talking about having the driver’s spouse or significant other drive at least 20 per cent of the laps. OK, in the case of Danica Patrick, who is currently hooked up with Ricky Stenhouse, Jr., there would be a special bylaw where each could pick from a brother or sister, cousin, mother, sponsor’s spouse, or motorpalace coach driver. No pets, though. 5. CUT THE PIT time: It’s a really sad state of “racing” that most position changes occur in the pits and not on the actual racetrack, but by limiting fuel stops and tires, the racing would have more strategy out there at full speed. And while we’re at it, no more phony-baloney caution flags for gum wrappers or orange peels on the track, or for minor spin-outs or fender benders, for that matter. Once more, take the cue from Formula One. Am I being serious? You be the judge, but I didn’t go into the really crazy ideas such as staging figureeight races, night races without lights, racing every second lap on mopeds, or other frivolous and potentially dangerous recommendations . . . that would be way too silly. — Malcolm

You would think that NASCAR racing at 300 km-h would be fun for fans, but it has become like watching rush-hour traffic for five hours straight. Serious — sort of — changes need to be made.
