There was a touching moment with his
daughter and a time when he was in a hospital bed dying. They are detailed in the feature on Page 3. After 15 months of sobriety, Mike is doing some amazing things. He is spreading the word about drug and alcohol abuse in various schools and communities in an honest way. No punches pulled. He facilitates a group for fathers trying to break the cycle of violence against women. He held a fundraiser for an elder. More than $1,000 was raised that day. Now Mike has the wheels rolling for a national conference here and for taking a group to one in Ottawa. Mike’s current project is to gather winter clothing for those in need. As we sat at Tim Horton’s, Mike motioned to the little homes north of the restaurant. As a child he lived in one. He said he remembers praying that other people would have a place to sleep and a blanket to keep them warm. His prayer is being answered. Winter clothing can be dropped off between now and Nov. 8 at the Core Neighbourhood Youth Co-op (905 20th Street West). The clothing will be given to those needing it on Nov. 9 at the White Buffalo Youth Lodge.

number of elementary schools he had attended. He ran out of fingers and toes. He tried to add up the number of foster homes. Fingers and toes were again far too few. “I have never had a stable home. It was a different place just about every year in my life: sometimes five, six places a year. That instability can really wreck a child. We were really passed around growing up, and it affected us.” Some of those stops were in rural Saskatchewan. “I was usually the only Native kid in these rural towns. I resided in foster homes filled with a lot of racism and anger because I was invading their space. I didn’t choose that lifestyle. I wanted a home too. “Not feeling worthy of love can destroy

a child’s heart and soul. I became angry and frustrated. I couldn’t find love in the places I needed it most.” Scott talks from his heart. “Our mom was an alcoholic when we were younger. That is from her past; we don’t know what she lived through. When my mom was younger (six years old) her mom committed suicide. “From that happening my aunties and uncles got all separated and that cycle kept continuing. All that pain carried on to us, and we didn’t know how to function as a family. That is why we were all separated.” Scott, now 24, and his four siblings were reunited at their mother’s funeral in August 2011. Her death hit him hard. (Continued on page 4)

Mike Scott never had a male role model in his life (Photo by Sandy Hutchinson)
“I can’t believe how far I have come”
(Continued from page 3)
“I was doing cocaine and drinking every day. That was my lifestyle. To get drunk and to get high to hide the pain because I didn’t know how to cope with losing my mom. We were really close.” By then he had also lost his childhood. He had no innocence of youth. “When you are young you have these dreams of being whatever. But as you go through life you start experiencing all these hardships and it really breaks you down. And there is nobody there to motivate you. “Now that I am older I realize I never had a male role model in my life. Dad bounced out after I went to jail and wasn’t part of my life anymore. To this day he is lost.” Scott was incarcerated when he was 12 and released when he was 14. He went into treatment on Aug. 8, 2012. “Every day is a new struggle that you have to overcome. Some days I wake up and go, ‘Man, I don’t want to go to school.’ Then I think I have to go to school. It is going to benefit me. You have to force yourself to do what needs to be done.” Scott hasn’t wasted those 15 months of sobriety. He has spoken to youth in communities such as Turner Lake, La Loche, Sandy Bay and Pelican Narrows. He interacts with them. Many are now Facebook friends. “It’s a message of hope and compassion to other people: how far I have come from where I was, to change my life in order for me to do this type of stuff for other people.” Scott organized a day he called Walking 4 Directions. It raised more than $1,000 for an elder. He sundances and he drums. It’s part of getting back to his roots. He helps facilitate two groups at the Core Neighbourhood Youth Co-op (CNYC) that strive to help end violence in women’s lives. There’s one for fathers and another for mothers. There is no excuse not to participate, Scott said. There is free child care, supper
Clothing the Community
Core Neighbourhood Youth Co-op (CNYC) is gathering coldweather clothing for those in need of it. “Every winter you see somebody without a winter jacket or looking cold just wearing sweaters. So I wanted to try to do my part and help them,” said organizer Mike Scott. Clothing can be dropped off between now and Nov. 8 at the CNYC at 905 20th Street West. The clothing will be given to those needing it on Nov. 9 at the White Buffalo Youth Lodge. For more information on the CNYC and its programs visit www. cnyc.ca. can be made at the CNYC (905 20th Street West). Bus passes are available. The interactive groups meet on Wednesdays from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. “We are shooting for ages 15 to 30, but we don’t discourage others from coming. You have to be a father or mother to come.” There is always work to be done and dark days to face, but these are good times for Mike Scott. Taliyah is doing well and he has a six-month-old son (Michael Jr.). “I can’t believe how far I have come in such a short time. And it’s just the beginning. My expectations for myself are higher than I would have ever imagined. I believe in myself now. “I broke that cycle.” To contact Mike, email creenative@ hotmail.com.

Eventually Parliament commissioned a Bar of Commemoration to be attached to the Volunteer Medal to honour those brave Canadians who had valiantly served in Bomber Command. On behalf of our father, my brother (as the family holder of the original medals) has applied for the bar. How broad or narrow qualification is for the bar is not known. This is government, so there will be rules.
Whether my father qualifies for the bar posthumously or not is insignificant. It is the act of application that is important: a personal gesture of remembrance for an ordinary man who served willingly and loyally. It’s a small acknowledgement of a man whose presence on this earth remains unnoticed and unmarked. Except in the hearts of his children. Lest we forget.

Praise for the mayor
Lean, healthy choice
In a letter in last week’s Express, the writer said Mayor Don Atchison must have a obsessive/compulsive disorder because he hasn’t missed a council meeting in 19 years. I think Mayor Atchison’s only affliction is a serious dedication to his responsibilities on city council. He should be commended, not belittled. If you think the job is so easy, why don’t you run for council? By the way, Mayor Atchison deserves a big pat on the back for getting the south bridge project in place. Harvey Pippin, Pike Lake

He said it was the strangest-tasting ice cream he has ever had. Of course we laughed about this for a long time. I’m sure my experience is no different than those of people who come from a different country. I have a friend who came from South Korea. He was sharing his experiences from when he first came to Canada. Sometimes I didn’t know if I should believe him, because he likes to stretch the truth a bit. He said he couldn’t believe his good luck when he saw a sign advertising hot dogs. According to him, dogs are eaten in his homeland. “In Canada they even cook them into little wieners.” I had to stop him when he said he brushed his teeth with Preparation H for a couple of weeks. ���How can anybody be that silly?” I said.

Saskatoon B’nai Brith Celebrates 59th Annual Silver Plate Dinner Wednesday, November 13th at TCU Place
This event is the longest running charitable dinner in Saskatoon. B’nai Brith is the international Jewish men’s organization committed to doing charitable work in local communities and in combating racism from the local to international level. All of the monies raised at the dinner go towards local needs in the community. The mandate for many years has been to focus on the needs of youth. In keeping with that goal the proceeds have provided funds to many organizations, including the Children’s Health and Hospital Foundation, the Care and Share program, Ronald McDonald House, Saskatoon Pre-school Foundation, Station 20 West, the Future in Mind campaign and the Crocus Co-op. As well, B’nai Brith supports Congregation Agudas Israel and Batting 1000, an initiative of the Saskatoon Foundation, supporting youth activities for less privileged children. In the past, Big Brothers, Big Sisters, the local hospitals and many other worthy causes have been recipients of support. B’nai Brith was a leading sponsor of the internationally acclaimed project, “Anne Frank in the World” held at the Diefenbaker Centre in Saskatoon in 2006. Almost 20,000 guests visited this moving exhibit which related the story of Anne Frank and illustrated the need to combat racism and persecution in our own communities.
At the dinner, the winner of the B’nai Brith “We’re Proud of You” award will be named. This award is presented annually to a citizen of Saskatoon who has provided an exceptional level of volunteer service to our city outside his area of professional responsibility and has not received recognition due. The men of the B’nai Brith are grateful to have the supporters who have given the lodge the privilege of supporting so many causes. If you would like to purchase a ticket please phone Ron Gitlin 667-6202.

Fashion Forward White Dhalia in bloom on Second Avenue
Tammy Robert Saskatoon Express
ashion is in full bloom at Saskatoon’s Dutch Growers, with partner and fashion buyer Pam Van Duyvendyk about to launch a second location dedicated solely to style. White Dhalia (pronounced Dahl-yee-a) is set for its grand opening Nov. 8 at its new 5,000-square-foot location in the heart of Saskatoon’s rapidly evolving Second Avenue. “We’ve always had a home-decor department in the Sutherland garden store,” said Van Duyvendyk. “We’d always go to trade shows, and in addition to home décor we’d see a fashion element to what we could bring in. So at Dutch Growers we started with a glass case of fashion accessories, which sold out right away. We definitely didn’t start big.” At that time Van Duyvendyk was running all the perennial greenhouses, then taking the fashion aspect of the business home at night to manage on her own time. “Everyone called it my hobby,” she said with a laugh. “I just wanted to expand. A lot of people didn’t even know that I existed over there,” said Van Duyvendyk about her fashion setup at Sutherland’s Dutch Growers location. “I really felt like there were a lot of people missing out on what we were doing. Now with two locations on opposite ends of the city, traffic is going to flow to both locations and we can cross promote each other.” Why the name White Dhalia? “Everyone is always looking for something different. I felt this spelling made it a bit edgier. Plus, it’s also the way you pronounce dahlia in Dutch.” Van Duyvendyk is excited for what she is bringing to the fashion market in Saskatoon. “We’re going to have new brands that Saskatoon has never seen before,” she said. “I managed to get certain lines just as they’re being released to the market. It’s really exciting to bring something to Saskatoon first. We deserve it; we’re booming and growing. “We’re really lucky because our customers are really fashion-forward, and our girls are looking for the latest items. Fashion is changing so much and so fast. It’s got to do with pop culture and everyone trying to push the limit. Every couple of JW11131.K04 weeks there’s a new trend out there that I have to stay on top James of.”
Pam Van Duyvendyk’s store (White Dhalia) on Second Avenue North officially opens Nov. 8 (Photo by Sandy Hutchinson) Van Duyvendyk finds herself buying every week, searching out new trends and making sure they are in her store six months in advance of the season. “We do this so the ‘Dhalia Girl’ can create herself,” she said. “It doesn’t matter if she’s 16 or 60. The girl shopping at White Dhalia will be really fashion-forward and on trend. You’ll find White Dhalia at 142 Second Avenue North, just across the street from the King George condos. “It had to be the right spot. I wanted something that was more than 1,000 square feet. This one came up and it was on Second Avenue, a street with all these neat little restaurants popping up. I think it’s such a cool street to walk.” White Dhalia will feature lines such as Noisy May — a really fashion-forward, trendy brand focusing on the grunge aspect of fashion that’s really in for fall. “We will have some Vera Moda crossing over from the other store,” said Van Duyvendyk. “We’re also carrying local designer Laurie Brown. She is amazing. She’s been
What if we grew tomorrow’s leaders right here in Saskatchewan?
in a lot of fashion shows and really done well with her line.” Van Duyvendyk is thrilled with the warm welcome she’s received in her new location. “We’ve really felt welcome on Second Avenue, especially with the amount of construction we’ve been under for the last couple of months,” she explained. “We’ve really appreciated that patience.” She is also looking for staff to share her new adventure. “Full time or part time,” she said. “You don’t even need to have retail experience. Just a good attitude and a passion for fashion. “Saskatoon really comes together for a new business,” Van Duyvendyk said. “That’s probably been the most amazing thing about this experience and a great thing for the future of Saskatoon. To step out and do something new really is a leap of faith. Having the city back you up means everything.” White Dhalia can be found at facebook.com/whitedhalia.
Sound far-fetched? Not to us. That’s why PotashCorp is bringing We Day, an awesome youth event for social change, right here to Saskatchewan. But you can’t buy a ticket to We Day — 15,000 kids earn their way in through service. As a partner of Free The Children, a charity that empowers young people worldwide, PotashCorp is proud to inspire the next generation of leaders. Together, we can make their world a better place.

and tie, an aboriginal male with long, shiny black hair wearing a collared, buttoned-up shirt, a mid-older-aged white female, a light-skinned teenaged girl with cute hair and a cuter hipster cap, and a safely-generic dark-skinned woman who could be perceived as Middle Eastern. But without a headcovering in sight, it says to me the creative department chose not to go there. Could any one of these five individuals suffer from mental illness or addictions? Of course. The stigma surrounding diseases of the mind, the brain, is one that society has rightly identified as having to be abolished — or at least managed — so that normal folks (like the ones on the ministry’s poster) don’t feel shame when admitting they might have and may be pursuing treatment for a mental-health or addictions issue. What scares me, however, is this incessant need we seem to have to sanitize every unpleasant issue to the point that it barely resembles a shell of its former but often very realistic self. It’s exactly what we did to bullying — currently the most overused and abused word in our lexicon. We have patted and polished bullying into something that is so glamorous that it’s unrecognizable anymore. It’s a catch-all for every child or adult whose feelings have been hurt. The true, insidious form, the kind that has existed since I was a child — since our parents and grandparents were children — has been swallowed into an abyss of self-pity, entitlement and helicopter parenting. The face of mental illness and addictions that is not featured on the government’s visual (and likely never will be) is just as important as the clean and shiny ones. It’s a face that is often meth-scarred, dirty and aban-
doned. It can be cold and bitter or wide open and confused. It might be certified, then homeless, and then certified again. Diabetic and depressed, the face of mental illness often looks years older than it is. Blank, stoned, sluggish. Always sleeping or always screaming, the face of mental illness is an angry teen or a depressed grandmother. The face of mental illness doesn’t look good on a poster because it’s not the one we want to see. In our quest to embrace mental illness as a common, run-of-the-mill health-care issue, we absolutely must not brush aside those who have been publicly suffering that stigma for years, simply because they are easy to identify. We must accept the whole spectrum, without caste, without fear, without sweeping the undesirable portion of mental health and addictions under the carpet. Otherwise we’ll have our next “bullying” epidemic. Because when everyone’s sad, no one is.

The Great Escape Author sets the record straight in new book A
s a teenager in 1963, Ted Barris watched The Great Escape, an American-made motion picture which was loaded with the star quality of Steve McQueen, James Garner, Richard Attenborough, Charles Bronson and James Coburn. Now 50 years later, Barris is an author with 17 non-fictional books to his credit, eight of them devoted to historic chapters of war. And he’s ready to tell you that the American movie is nothing like what really happened of the Stalag Luft III camp near Sagan, Poland. The Great Escape: A Canadian Story is his look at the historic moments leading up to the attempted escape from the prisoner-of-war compound. “The Hollywood filmmakers totally ignored Canadian People participation in the escape attempt,” said Barris during a visit to Saskatoon, where he once worked at CFQC Radio. “In my two and a half years of researching and writing, I found some of the participants and other members of the families. And I found it to be an all-Canadian story who took on the exercise with extraordinary co-ordination, intelligence and daring.” When he’s away from his day job as a professor of journalism and broadcasting at Centennial College in Toronto, he’s an avid researcher, and The Great Escape is told through unearthed recordings and transcripts, exclusive interviews, unpublished letters, diaries and memoirs. Part of the folly of the film was “that that there was no one who closely resembled Steve McQueen’s character. For him to ride a motorcycle and leap over barbed-wired fences was pure fiction. The motorcycle was there because McQueen enjoyed them and liked them in all of his films. And it wasn’t plausible that he would ride a motorcycle on March 24, 1944, when there was a metre of snow on the ground. “They didn’t choose an authentic setting, opting for a location in southern Germany, near the Swiss Alps, instead of southern Poland where the camp really was.” Here are the facts, as written by Barris. On the night of March 24, 1944, 80 Commonwealth air officers crawled through a 360-foot-long tunnel and slipped into the darkness of a pine forest beyond the North Compound at Stalag Luft III. As dawn broke on March 25, German guards outside the compound spotted prisoners emerging from the exit hole, set off an alarm, and over the next three days, managed to capture all but three of the escapers. In a rage, Adolph Hitler called for the execution
Ted Barris spent two and a half years researching and writing The Great Escape: A Canadian Story (Photo by Sandy Hutchinson) of all the escapers. Instead the death list was adjusted downward and 50 of the Commonwealth air officers were executed. “In the film it shows the 50 officers gunned down en masse by a German machine-gun crew in an open field,” said Barris. “In truth, and something which hasn’t been published, is that after the recapture, imprisonment and interrogation, the officers were taken out and shot in twos and threes by hand-picked German Gestapo death squads.” For Barris the previous war classics included Juno: Canadians at D-Day, Days of Victory, Victory at Vimy and Breaking The Silence. In the process he has interviewed more than 5,000 veterans. “One of my good friends was Charley Fox, a Spitfire pilot who was among those who chased Rommel out of Africa during the Second World War. He’d keep a to-do list, and on that list he wanted me to tell the Canadian version of the Great Escape. “When he died in 2008 and I came back from a visit to the Stalag camp, I was moved to fulfil my long-time promise to my friend Charley.” Barris remembered he had attended school in Toronto with Chris Pengelly.
“I’d played in the backyard of his home, not knowing that his father, Tony, had been a prisoner of war. One day a couple of us were wondering where we could find Chris. We found him as a chef and owner of a bistro and decided to visit. We spent a Saturday night as a social visit between six people. The next morning, Chris and I sat down together and he brought out a box that was full of his father Tony’s diaries and memoirs, many photos and artifacts from the war years. It opened up a whole treasure of contacts for me.” Tony Pengelly became one of those ever-present threads in the POW experience. He was shot down in November 1940 and landed on German soil. In camp he was the POW who designed many of the fake documents used by the men in their escape attempt. Among those other threads were airmen like John Weir, George Sweanor, Don Edy, Gordon King, Albert Wallace, Frank Sorensen and Dick Bartlett. Bartlett was a Saskatchewan-born flyer. He was raised on a dairy farm near Fort Qu’Appelle and went to England in 1938 for provisional entry into the Royal Navy Air Fleet Arm. He was in a torpedo-training unit which was perfecting airborne sorties against German ships. By the spring of 1940
he was flying dive bombers from a base in Norway. On June 14 Bartlett’s plane was shot down and he was captured. Bartlett was able to bribe some Polish labourers into sneaking components for a small radio receiver into camp. The wireless set allowed the POWs to hear regular broadcasts from the BBC. Bartlett regularly assembled and disassembled the unit, often hiding the parts in a medicine ball. Bartlett drew No. 16 in the escape plan, but surrendered it to another officer because he believed he’d be of more value back in the camp. Bartlett was a survivor. He returned to Canada only to hear of an episode where his seven-year-old grandson told classmates at a Remembrance Day service that “my grandfather spent the war in jail.” Interesting too were Weir’s letters back to his fiancé in Canada. He’d often request pyjamas (which were used by the diggers in the tunnels, preferable to being naked or getting the regular clothes smeared) and gramophone needles (which were used in compasses). “Imagine that somehow the Germans managed to throw all of these innovative guys into the same camp,” said Barris. “What the Canadians did was so intricate and sophisticated and strong in their team management.”

Researchers learn at the school of hard knocks
By Michael Robin U of S News
niversity of Saskatoon Huskies football defensive lineman Caleb Eidsvik takes up a lot of room as he sits on an examining table in the trainer’s room at Griffiths Field, patiently waiting for pharmacology student Hungbo Qudus to draw a small sample of blood. At 6-foot-3 and 260 pounds, Eidsvik exudes strength and good health. And that’s the problem, according to researcher Changiz Taghibiglou, since Eidsvik is suspected of having a concussion. “There’s no easy way to conclusively diagnose concussion now. You need an MRI or a CT scan,” Taghibiglou said. “Whether it’s car accidents, falls or sports injuries, we actually don’t have any simple tests.” Taghibiglou is an assistant professor in the College of Medicine’s Department of Pharmacology. If he gets his way, testing for concussion will be so simple that a test kit will be a standard item in every medical bag, to be used by trainers and coaches at football fields and hockey arenas — even by first responders and EMTs. Diagnosis of concussion is critical. While short-term symptoms such as vomiting, confusion and headache may be easy to spot, Taghibiglou explained that long-term effects can be more subtle and easier to brush off. This can be extremely dangerous: if the person suffers a second concussion before fully recovering from the first, they are at high risk of developing permanent brain damage, psychiatric problems or even dying. There are also risks of long-term effects, including Parkinson’s and Alzheimer diseases, and post-traumatic stress disorder. At the heart of Taghibiglou’s concussion test is a molecule that exists on the surface of brain cells. Through research carried out JW11117.K04 by scientists at the Canadian Department James of National Defence, a link was found be-
Hungbo Qudus takes a blood sample from Huskies football player Caleb Eidsvik as Changiz Taghibiglou (back right) and Nathan Pham look on (Photo by Michael Robin) tween the molecule and brain trauma. This research is ongoing and represents one of the agency’s many inquiries into the effects of battlefield blasts on soldiers. “Physical injuries are easy to spot, but with a concussion a person can appear fine,” Taghibiglou said. “In the worst case there are no outward signs of injury so they are sent back out, re-injured, and suffer significant neurological issues later.” Taghibiglou said head trauma – whether from an accidental blow to the head, a hard slam on the gridiron or a forceful check against the boards – can knock certain brain cell molecules loose. Once free they circulate in the blood where they can be detected by a simple blood test (a patent for the test has been applied for through
the U of S Industry Liaison Office). Working with Huskie Athletics, Taghibiglou, Qudus and graduate student Nathan Pham are gathering blood samples from athletes pre- and post-injury. Taghibiglou praised Basil Hughton (director of Huskie Athletics) and Rhonda Shishkin (team therapist) for arranging access, particularly during peak season. “We’re collecting from the football team and are also looking for concussion in other teams such as soccer and hockey,” said Taghibiglou. Since the test is so new, the research team also needs about 300 male and female volunteers to donate small blood samples to establish the normal level of the concussion-associated molecules in the blood.
“There are no values in the reference books, simply because no one has gathered the data yet. Our ultimate goal is a simple diagnostic test, much like the blood sugar tests used by diabetics.” Taghibiglou said the test would be particularly valuable for rural and remote communities that lack the medical equipment typically used for trauma diagnosis.
“Small health clinics don’t have an MRI. It may help rural doctors refer their patients to larger centres and know what’s going on.” Taghibiglou said anyone contributing to the project monetarily or with a small blood sample can contact Pham at 9662552 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Is the doctor still in the house?
Dear Lianne, I spoke with you last week about the doctor in his 50s who is looking for companionship. I sent you a bio and photo and have not heard back. I am the 58-year-old nurse. Does this fellow really exist or is he imaginary? — DM Dear DM, He most certainly exists! He is alive and well and in Saskatoon. I had several responses for this fellow and reviewed them with him. He has a pre-school child and is hoping to meet a playful, energetic, fashion-conscious younger gal. The search is still on for her. I am conducting this search specifically for him as he is a Prestige Relationships Match client. With Prestige I search outside of my data base for my clients. I am still anxiously accepting bios and photos for him. They should be sent to me at email@example.com. For those who want searches conducted for themselves, they would need to contact me at 204888-1529 to discuss membership possibilities. I will be interviewing in Saskatoon the week of Nov. 19. I do get booked, so I would suggest people contact me sooner rather than waiting until the last minute. I do realize many singles like to wait until the last moment just in case they meet the love of their life in the meantime. Dear Lianne, I am writing to you with an observation and for your opinion. My sister and her partner split up last spring. They have a child together. As I sit back and observe, I see the manipulative ways of my sister.

She is using that boy to hurt her ex. Her partner is an amazing father, and it breaks my heart to see this little boy being used for my sister’s vindictiveness and control. I know blood is meant to be thicker than water, but I see the pattern here and it is tearing me apart. What should I do? — Aunt Dear Aunt, Sometimes making waves and stepping into a situation is necessary. How disgusting that your sister is using a little boy to obtain power and control over her ex. She is harming her son. I assure you that you will not receive a warm welcome when you bring this to her attention. Sit down with her and let her know what you are observing. I would research programs such as For the Sake of the Children and suggest she look at signing up. She may need you to help her come up with effective ways to deal with her ex.

The Breast Friends were honoured to be invited last week to a banquet with keynote speaker Arlene Dickinson of Dragons’ Den fame. This banquet was sponsored by the Humboldt Scotia Bank. Arlene is a great speaker and a positive role model for women in business. We were thrilled she remembered us and that she was interested in how the books have been doing since we were on Dragons’ Den. On top of all of that the chicken at the banquet was delicious. Judy and her team from the Bella Vista Inn graciously shared the recipe with us and said we could share it with readers. I (Patti Hack) made it for company, and it was a big hit. I rolled the chicken breasts in flour, egg wash and then bread crumbs. I baked them at 350F until cooked through (rather than browning them ahead). This was a suggestion of Judy’s; they do them both ways when they cater. I can attest that either way is yummy!

but music as good as ever
Tammy Robert Saskatoon Express
hen you think of legendary Canadian rock musician Matt Good, your mind might wander back to his stint as lead singer of the Matthew Good Band, one of Canada’s most successful bands of the angst-filled, alternative 1990’s scene. Today Good continues to enjoy a busy, successful musical career, recently releasing his latest album, Arrows of Desire. In addition to continuing to tour and make music, Good finds himself a dedicated husband and father. It’s a far cry from the angry guy whose reputation for being difficult preceded him, especially prior to his diagnosis of manic depression and bipolar disorder. Good (who will be in Saskatoon on Nov. 8 at the Odeon Event Centre) acknowledges that bridging the gap between 1990’s grunge-era full-album CD releases and today’s snippet-consuming, iTunesdownloading audience hasn’t really fazed him. “Bridging that transition wasn’t something that was on the forefront of my mind,” said Good in a telephone interview from his British Columbia home. “I was working so much I didn’t even notice the true impact of the phenomenon. I think a lot of artists of my generation made that mistake. You’re working, you’re on the road, you’re writing, all the ancillary aspects of what was going on in the industry were lost on you. I only started using iTunes in 2006.” Good reminisces on the time when a music lover didn’t know anything about an album when you bought it. “You listened,” he said. “You listened to everything, took it in stride. It helped you appreciate how they altered everything. It gave you a deep-seat-
ed appreciation for their evolution.” The conversation turned to a milestone in music consumerism: the late 1990s and early 2000s when music stores installed listening posts for customers to sample the album before purchasing. “I found that very interesting,” said Good. “You could judge the whole album before buying. It was like looking at paintings and deciding you just liked the corner piece. It signalled a shift from a musicappreciation thing to more of a consumerappreciation thing. The artist’s intention gets lost. An entirely new generation came into being through this concept — a fragmented one.” Good considers that a disservice to the relationship between the musician and the audience. “These days if someone comes along that is the new cool thing, then it’s a lot easier to jump ship,” he said. “It disempowers artists with regards to them doing new things and knowing their fan base will stick with them.” Good said he did not drink alcohol between the ages of 20 and 32 and has never done drugs. Yet at the rock bottom of his disease, he said he looked like a heroin addict, and it took a terrifying incident to save his life. “I accidentally overdosed on Ativan, which I was addicted to,” said Good. “I just kept taking more. I was so stoned I didn’t know what I was doing. I took a shower, put myself in pajamas soaking wet, went to get into bed and instead hit the floor. My mom and dad heard it. Next thing I know I was in hospital. I willfully admitted myself.” Good credits the fact that he hit the floor instead of the bed as the reason he is still with us today. “I was in a psychiatric ward with people who had mental problems, schizophrenics. All I had was a notepad and a deck of
Matthew Good is grateful for his loyal following (Photo Supplied) cards. I played some solitaire, and I wrote the lyrics for Hospital Music. Sometimes you have to go to hell to be saved.” With mental-health issues at the forefront of many Canadian’s minds, Good doesn’t shy away from discussing own experience battling the disease. “It’s not a touchy subject; I’m bipolar,” he said frankly. “The stigma should be challenged. When I was 16 and I was depressed, you listened to the Smiths. There’s a big difference between feeling bad and being born with a genealogical illness. Where mania and depression collide, you’re talking about neurology. Everyone knows I’m not big fan of conforma, but I will say my medication has changed my life.” While Good may not have the angst or the anger he did 20 years ago, his music continues to win over both old and new
fans. The new album feels familiar. And the voice, unmistakable — a style that true Good fans have been respecting for 20 years. He says Arrows of Desire was inspired by alt-bands of the 1980s, such as The Replacements, Afghan Whigs, and the Pixies specifically. Despite what he referred to earlier in the interview as a new, perceived lack of staying power between music and listener, Good acknowledged his fans have been loyal. “I’ve been very, very lucky that I have such die-hard fans willing to travel the journey with me. I’ve had parents come up to me with their teens. It’s been a generational thing.” Good’s concert at the Odeon is for all ages. Opening for him will be Gentlemen Husbands. The show begins at 7 p.m. For tickets visit www.theodeon.ca.

What we can reasonably believe is that these greedy Senators collaborated with Harper or the PMO staff to cover their butts in an attempt to prevent personal and/ or political scandals. The end result, in short, is that Harper’s Judas goat turned out to be his Judas. What should any prime minister learn

Market on 33rd Street
offers one-of-a-kind shopping Tammy Robert Saskatoon Express
here’s a new market in town, but not one where you can expect to pick up potatoes and pies. Saskatoon residents Lori Lynn and Wade Farwell have launched The 33rd Street Market at 404 33rd Street West. Their goal is twofold: to assist the revitalization of the Mayfair and Caswell neighbourhoods, and to rebrand as the place to go to scout out fabulous vintage and antique pieces. Lynn and Farwell originally opened a full-time retail store in the Owl & Crate space, selling antique and vintage (but on-trend) home furnishings and accessories. Finding themselves with a bit more space than they needed, the duo grasped the opportunity to launch a new indoor artisan and craftsmanship market. “Owl & Crate began as something that we did out of our home,” explained Lynn. “It just expanded so rapidly that we knew we needed a storefront. There was no question that we wanted to be in the Mayfair and Caswell neighbourhoods. This location is perfect: right on the cusp of both communities and providing the ideal circumstance to launch the 33rd Street Market at the same time.” The market boasts artisans and crafters of every kind, from knitting, crocheting and handcrafted
body products to handmade, upscale handbags and repurposed jewelry. “Mid Mod Sask has just opened a space as well,” said Lynn. “Owned by Saskatoon resident Cindy McCoy, she sells mid-modern century furniture and accessories, specializing in retro, vintage and mid-century designs.” Lynn states that in addition to offering Saskatoon an option for a one-of-a-kind shopping experience, she and Farwell wanted to do more for the community. “We want to bring some good energy to the neighbourhood, while creating a vintage and antique district to support local crafters and artists,” said Lynn. “It’s an alternative to big-box furniture and home accessories. And a great way to support local artists and crafters. It’s such a nice neighbourhood: you can walk one end to the other, dropping in on places like Better Off Duds for vintage clothing, 2nd Chance on 33rd, to Funks Furniture and Antiques, and Back to Coffee Beans for something warm to sip.” “We’re still looking for more vendors,” said Lynn. “If you are a local artist, crafter or musician, we would love to chat with you.” If you’re interested, call Lori Lynn at 306-220-2228. The market is open on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. More information can be found at www.facebook. com/33rdstreetmarket.

Cam Hutchinson & Friends: Lloyd Robertson, Bob Barker and aging tickers
a Halloween Party and dangling a child upside down from an overpass: “Presume he was dressed up as Michael Jackson?” • Rolfsen, on the Raptors and Bucks game having to be cancelled because the playing surface was too slippery: “That’s the same excuse the Buffalo Sabres are using.” • My favourite new television show: The Blacklist. • From Hough: “In Mexico Nov. 1 is known as Day of the Dead. In the U.S. and Canada it’s National Half-Price Candy Day.” • Forty per cent of McDonald’s profits come from Happy Meals. The other 60 per cent come from me. • Hough, on San Diego State playing its third annual Halloween baseball game with everyone on the field in costume: “Big deal, say Cubs fans. For 100 years we’ve been watching guys dress up like professional baseball players.” • The first prank phone call is believed to have been made in 1884, eight years after the phone was invented. I’m guessing it was a kid having a pizza delivered to a neighbour’s home. • A new watch called Tikka claims to be able to count down the time of death of the wearer. Gives new meaning to clock watcher, doesn’t it? • Hough, on Bob Barker returning to the Price is Right for his 90th birthday: “It will be like he never left. Especially for Bob himself, who probably won’t remember leaving.” • I remember the good old days when the show’s producers wanted Barker spayed or neutered? • My three favourite NHL players (2013 version): PK Subban, Roberto Luongo and Paul Bissonnette. • From Rolfsen: “With Canadian star Andrew Wiggins on the team, TSN is planning to broadcast every Kansas Jayhawks college basketball game this season. It will be the first thing from Kansas on Canadian TV since the Wizard of Oz.” • Here is something I have been asking myself: If the Maple Leafs and Sharks were in the Stanley Cup final, who would I want to lose? • Hough, on Dell Computers admitting that some of its new laptops smell like a cat litter box: “Are they sure it’s the machine and not the latest version of Windows?”
• The Seminole Tribe in Florida owns the Hard Rock Cafe chain. Does that mean we would have a referendum should downtown Saskatoon ever be considered for a franchise? • Torben Rolfsen, on the San Francisco Chronicle’s decision to no longer refer to Washington’s NFL team as the Redskins: “In a related story, the Minneapolis Star Tribune will no longer refer to Josh Freeman as a quarterback.” • From Janice Hough: “Now that there is medical marijuana for pets, what’s the next product? Cat and dog food flavoured like Doritos?” • TC Chong, on the Jacksonville Jaguars having the dubious honour of failing to win in two countries: “Team owners are rumoured to be scheduling a game in Winnipeg against the Blue Bombers.” • Queen ants can live up to 28 years. “Tell me about it,” said Prince Charles. • From Hough: “Will Tim McCarver’s next act be telling Americans how much more he knows about retirement than any of us?” • From Bill Littlejohn: “Officials in a Chinese province faced online ridicule for releasing a poorly-doctored image of administrators meeting with a 103-year-old woman. Apparently you can see traces of her women’s gymnastics team uniform.” • Rolfsen, on EA Sports dropping Tiger Woods from the title of its golf game after 15 years: “It’s about time Carl Spackler got his due.” • From Hough: “An NFL game ended in overtime on a safety? That’s almost as unbelievable as a baseball game ending on an obstruction call.” • Ithyphallophobia is the fear of erect penises. The disorder is most common among inmates. • From Chong:” Game 6 tickets for the World Series went for a record high $1,800 average each. The next day I kept getting emails from Groupon for 50 per cent off Game 7 seats.” • A group of owls is a parliament. Can’t you just hear John Diefenbaker now: “Frankly Ms. Wallin, I don’t give a hoot.” • On behalf of all Canadians I would like to thank Mike Duffy for providing the best television in Canadian political history. I’m told it’s even better than Lloyd Robertson’s live report as John A. Macdonald drove in the last spike. • Hough, on a Wisconsin man being arrested after coming home drunk from
Views of the World
Hunter mooses badly By RJ Currie
• According to an Oct. 31 newsmax. com report, four things happen just before a heart attack. Top of the list is the Toronto Maple Leafs having a winning record. • The championship hopes of St. Louis ended without much of a fight in Game 6 at Fenway. It just wasn't in the Cards. • Ifonly.com is offering a day with Mike Tyson on his Undisputed Truth tour for $50,000, which includes a tête-à-tête over lunch. Add $25 and you get ear muffs. • Maria Sharapova appeared at the Dream for Future Africa Gala in a seethrough dress. Might be the only time Sharapova didn't have much coverage. • The Red Sox finally won the World Series at Fenway, ending a 95-year drought at home. Meanwhile I lost another argument with my wife, extending a 22-year drought. • Miami beat the Bengals on Thursday, ending a four-game skid amid reports of dissension in the locker room. Maybe the Dolphins found their sense of porpoise. • Here's an item from the oddlyappropriate files. Rearrange the letters in Dez Bryant and you get Rant By Dez. • Last week Metro News offered women tips on how to get supermodel Miranda Kerr's lips. Men just want to know how to get the rest of her. • San Diego State played its annual Halloween baseball game with everyone in costume. So what? For eight straight games the Jacksonville Jaguars have JW11098.j28 looked like clowns. • Reuters reports a hunter aiming at James
Miranda Kerr (Wiki Photo) a moose accidentally shot a senior in a distant house. Who was the hunter? Tim Tebow? • Andrew Bynum played for the Cavaliers Wednesday after being sidelined with an injury from bowling. Let's hope he's more careful driving the lane. • The DIY Network will reportedly air a few episodes on restoring old wood. Isn't that what Viagra is for? • An Atlanta cheerleader set a world record by completing 44 consecutive reverse handsprings. Hey, it's not like she's been too busy having things to cheer about. • Alan Iverson announced his retirement from the NBA. We're talking about retirement; not playing, not playing, not playing — retirement. Not playing; retirement. • The Huffington Post says on-ice insults are a growing concern in hockey. I’m thinking they’ve been watching the Buffalo Sabres play.
