First in, last out. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been the motto of Western Canadian troops since the day they first stepped foot on Afghanistan soil in 2002. On Tuesday, the final group of roughly 26 Canadian Armed Forces members landed at the Shell AeroCentre at the Edmonton International Airport, signalling the end of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s military mission in Afghanistan â&#x20AC;&#x201D; where 158 soldiers paid the ultimate price. For Lauren Lawrence, the day marks the first time when her husband Jeremy, a master corporal with Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s military police, can see his seven-month old daughter for the first time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been showing him pictures of her and stuff like that, and I think she recognizes him,â&#x20AC;? said Lawrence, who also has a two-year-old daughter with her husband. Jeremy was doing his first term in Afghanistan, lasting nine months. When the big bay doors at the Lecture Training Facility at the Edmonton Garrison opened

Tuesday evening, the family from Wainwright was finally able to have a proper reunion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feels really good,â&#x20AC;? said Jeremy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been waiting for a long time to see her and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really excited to get to know her.â&#x20AC;? Luckily for the Lawrences, troops were able to chat with their families back home via Skype. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a lot of things that are different now compared to the first group of guys that went over,â&#x20AC;? said Jeremy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were lucky enough to have some Internet and a lot better

communications with our families back home, so I was able to to talk to these guys quite a bit and keep in touch that way.â&#x20AC;? For Lauren, the thought of having Jeremy home for good â&#x20AC;&#x201D; without the looming threat of another redeployment â&#x20AC;&#x201D; means the world. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very relieving because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been difficult. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m kinda hoping this will be it and we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to do this again.â&#x20AC;? In total, Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s redeployment flight saw 84 CAF members reunited with their families, with stops in

Iveson said in a press release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a way for us to recognize the contributions of men and women of the Canadian Armed Forces and their families, and to thank them for their commitment toward peace, security and stability in what has been a very volatile part of the world.â&#x20AC;?

At the end of March, there will be more curling action going on in St. Albert than you can shake a stick at. From March 30 to April 2, the St. Albert Curling Club is playing host to the Canadian Open Stick Curling Championship, bringing together 48 teams from coast to coast to compete for the national title. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you asked any of the volunteers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and there are 38 of them â&#x20AC;&#x201D; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re as excited as Bob and I,â&#x20AC;? said Milt McDougall, who has been spearheading the organization of the tournament along with his curling teammate Bob McKenzie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The big clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s excited to host it. And the City (of St. Albert) has helped us. People have come forward 10 times better than I expected. ... Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure anyone who comes to watch will enjoy it.â&#x20AC;? Organizing the tournament has taken up much of McDougallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for the past two years. He and McKenzie competed in the tournament in Regina in 2012, where the idea of hosting was first hatched, and made a trip to Prince Edward Island last year to observe and learn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We talked to the (St. Albert Curling Club) and the 50+ Club, and they gave us the green light,â&#x20AC;? he said. He added there were no qualms about hosting the tournament in a curling club the size of St. Albertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the same size as what Regina had, with the same number of teams, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re following their format,â&#x20AC;? he said. While stick curlers can play on regular curling teams under regular rules, when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strictly sticks out on the ice, the rules are a little different. Stick curling teams are made up of only two

The roles alternate each end. Stones cannot be removed from play at all â&#x20AC;&#x201D; whether they are in the house or not â&#x20AC;&#x201D; until the fourth stone of each end. Sweeping is only allowed from the hog line to the back of the house at the playing end. Each game is six ends long. After curling for most of his life, McDougall made the switch to stick curling six or seven years ago. But the transition has been very smooth â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he and McKenzie recently won the 2014 Alberta championship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had enough rheumatism in my one knee that I was walking with a cane. And if I got down in the hack, I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get back up,â&#x20AC;? he said with a laugh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tricky, especially with draw shots,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My partner and I have been lucky; on an average to good day,

our draws are as good as anybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. In provincials, our draws won us almost all the games that we won. All our scores will tell you, because there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t one game won by more than one point.â&#x20AC;? Stick curling has proven popular with others in St. Albert, too. McDougall said there were 30 to 40 curlers using sticks in the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior leagues, so they decided to get a stick-only league going about four years ago. That league has been very active ever since. Across the province, McDougall said that teams from southern Alberta are always strong, but northern Alberta is catching up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are many of us that are seniors who have bad knees, a bit of rheumatism, bad backs and whatnot that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deliver from the hack anymore,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just keeps them out there and enjoying a great pastime.â&#x20AC;?

St. Albert is out of the running for the title of Kraft Hockeyville, but the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mayor is taking the loss in stride. The city was one of the final 16 municipalities across Canada for the contest put on by Kraft, the CBC and the National Hockey League, but on Saturday it was revealed during the Hockey Night in Canada broadcast that St. Albert had not received enough votes to move on to the final four. Mayor Nolan Crouse said he was a little disappointed, but had high praise for the community volunteers who put St. Albertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name forward.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you look back at it, you might find a way to use it as a community building event ... We probably could have done more, but it was (announced) on a Saturday night and (voting) was done Monday, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty hard to react too quickly,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the people who were getting the names in, getting the vote out and the word out did a good job.â&#x20AC;? Salmon Arm, B.C., and Sylvan Lake, Alta., qualified for the semifinal round out of Western Canada, while Kingston, N.S., and Bedeque, Que., moved on out of Eastern Canada. The winner of the Kraft Hockeyville contest will get $100,000 in upgrades to a local arena and the chance to host an NHL preseason game, along with a visit from CBC. St. Albert did get a consolation prize,

though, in the form of $25,000 in arena upgrades, which has been earmarked for the Akinsdale and Kinex arenas on Hebert Road. Crouse has talked briefly with St. Albert Minor Hockey Association officials about how that money could best be spent, but there are few details right now. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably use it to match up some community capital and see if they can leverage it with some provincial money,â&#x20AC;? Crouse said. While the sting of defeat is still fresh, the mayor is eager to take another run at the Hockeyville title in the future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think, if you do it, you have to get serious and really go at it hard,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not being a sore loser; if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to do it, you have to reach the spokes of your wheel out and really go at it from all kinds of angles.â&#x20AC;?

St. Albert’s local roller derby club is getting ready to crash and bang their way into another new season. The St. Albert Heavenly Rollers (STAHR) open up their 2014 campaign on Saturday, March 22, at the TransAlta Tri Leisure Centre in Spruce Grove as their Arch Angels travel team hosts the Lakeland Ladykillers from Cold Lake, with first whistle at 7 p.m. “Oh my gosh, we’re so excited to get going,” said STAHR vicepresident Celeste Thiesen, better known on the track as “Petra Phi.” “We stopped briefly in December for Christmas and got back to practicing in January, so we’ve been practicing quite a while, and we’d really like to get back on the track and put everything into action.” The opener is the only time STAHR will play outside St. Albert this season, as the Spruce Grove facility was able to remove turf from one of its fields earlier than Servus Credit Union Place could. The rest of the team’s games are scheduled to take place

in the Tudor Glen Veterinary Hospital fieldhouse at Servus Place. “(Servus Place) is our home, and we truly love them,” Thiesen said. But she also pointed out that many of STAHR’s players actually hail from Spruce Grove, and the team is excited to possibly convert some new fans to the sport. “They are beyond excited to take it out to their hometown. It’ll be interesting to see how Spruce Grove receives it,” she said. While the opening game of the season is exciting, perhaps more exciting is STAHR’s news from the offseason, when they gained apprentice league status with the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association. “It’s basically like joining the NHL for roller derby,” Thiesen said. “This is a massive milestone. Every year up until this point has seen steps put in place to get to this point, so we’re pretty excited to get going with that and take roller derby in St. Albert to a whole other level.”

The WTFDA establishes standardized rules for roller derby leagues all over the world, and holds tournaments every year. This is the fourth season that the Heavenly Rollers have taken to the track in St. Albert, and Thiesen said that the group’s membership continues to be very strong. “We had some attrition this past year because it is quite a commitment, especially now belonging to the WFTDA ... it means a lot more fundraising and efforts outside gameplay to really make this a success,” Thiesen said, noting that STAHR hopes to play games in the United States this year and in Europe next year. “However, what we have lost in players, we are quickly gaining back with new recruitment nights. It’s an ebb and flow; it’s just the way of roller derby.” Tickets for STAHR’s season opener are $10 in advance or $15 at the door. Advance tickets can be purchased through the team’s website at www. stahrderby.com.

The City of St. Albert is once again encouraging residents to go dark to help the environment. The City is getting ready to mark the 2014 edition of Earth Hour, which runs from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 29. During

that time, residents are being asked to turn off their lights to help reduce environmental impact and raise awareness about protecting our planet. “Earth Hour provides the opportunity for all residents to get involved with one small action,” Mayor Nolan Crouse said in a press release. “Turning off non-essential lights for just one hour can make a big difference in

reducing emissions. It’s important that we see how our actions can help contribute to make St. Albert a healthier, greener community for future generations.” Earth Hour was started by the World Wildlife Fund in Australia in 2007, and Canadian cities, including St. Albert, got in on the act the following year. During Earth Hour in 2013, FortisAlberta

reported that St. Albert saw a reduction in power consumption of 3.1 per cent compared to the same week the week prior. That would be enough energy to power 2,140 average households in the city for a period of one hour. For more information on Earth Hour and for suggestions of activities and events to run during that time, visit www.earthhour.org.

But now that our soldiers are back on Canadian soil, the support cannot stop; in fact, they may need our support more than ever. Some may be dealing with physical injuries that will need healing. Others may be dealing with mental health issues that are potentially even more devastating and life-altering, partly because they are not as evident at first glance. In recent months, the federal government has closed a number of Veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Affairs offices, while other ex-soldiers find themselves fighting new battles to get the benefits and compensation they are rightfully owed. Veterans in this country deserve better treatment than that. If we as Canadian citizens truly support our military personnel, then now is the time to demonstrate that support more than ever.

ach morning, I find myself looking for some form of inspiration that will set a positive tone for the rest of day. While it might be something that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve read, heard on the radio, or experienced in my work as a business coach, more often Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m inspired by the leaders and staff of the small businesses that are part of the NABI family in St. Albert. My heroes tend not to be superstars â&#x20AC;&#x201D; rather, the small business owners and their employees that I bump into each day who show that commitment, preparation and hard work can deliver results and success. A few of my heroes (in no particular order)? t3PC-F-BDIFVSGPSTUBSUJOH a newspaper (St. Albert Leader), Glenn Cook for publishing it and Michelle Barstad for doing everything else.

A young St. Albert student is hitting the books to show the rest of Canada what Alberta can do when it comes to French. CĂŠdric Boucher is a Grade 5 student in the French immersion program at Muriel Martin Elementary School in the Deer Ridge subdivision, and recently took first place in the regional DictĂŠe Paul GĂŠrin-Lajoie, a spelling competition for French immersion and francophone students, in Falher, Alta. Boucherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s win means he will have the chance to travel to Montreal for the international finals on May 11. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really excited, I think,â&#x20AC;? said Boucher, 10, noting that he studied â&#x20AC;&#x153;almost every dayâ&#x20AC;? heading into the regional competition, and likely will do the same leading up to Montreal. Nearly 178,000 students from Canada and parts of the United

States competed in La DictĂŠe P.G.L. in 2013, along with some 170,000 students in Frenchspeaking African countries like Senegal, Mali and the Republic of Guinea. For Monique Waters, the French immersion co-ordinator at Muriel Martin, having Boucher earn a place in the finals is a great opportunity for the French community in Alberta to show what it can do. â&#x20AC;&#x153;French is actually growing quicker out west than it is in other parts of Canada; French immersion is growing by leaps and bounds,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exciting to go to the French centre of our country and showcase what we are learning, what we are doing, and that we can compete.â&#x20AC;? But even more important is what Boucherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s qualification says about the quality of French language instruction at Muriel Martin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very exciting. I think it validates our French immersion

program,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It says a lot about our French community as it continues to grow out west, and how much it has grown. CĂŠdricâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done fantastic; I had the pleasure of teaching him last year, and he did extremely well last year in Grade 4 at DictĂŠe P.G.L. as well.â&#x20AC;? A dictĂŠe is not like a traditional spelling bee, as it puts more emphasis on writing. A paragraph of text is read out for students twice â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the first time at normal speed and the second time slower so students have a chance to write down what is said. The paragraphs are then turned in and marked for accuracy compared to the original text. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a paragraph for the people in immersion, an easy one. And then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a harder one for the (francophone students),â&#x20AC;? Boucher said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And then they make you write three sentences after, just so if thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tie, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll correct those ones to see who wins.â&#x20AC;? The regional dictĂŠe was a bit

nerve-racking for Boucher, but he settled down quickly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the beginning, I was really nervous. But then I started talking to the other kids, and when it started, I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t nervous anymore,â&#x20AC;? he said. In fact, he added, the toughest part didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come until the end. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it was when I was

Hockey is hitting the road again this May in St. Albert. After a successful first year, the Road Rage Street Hockey Tournament is coming back for 2014, with young pucksters taking over the south parking lot at Servus Credit Union Place on May 24 and 25. Former National Hockey League player Rob Brown is once again part of the eventâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organizing committee. He said the tournament went â&#x20AC;&#x153;better than we could have imaginedâ&#x20AC;? in 2013, and so both he and his kids are raring to go again this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My son has been talking for the past month or so already about it, about getting his friends involved and trying to pick his team, pick his team name and anything,â&#x20AC;? Brown said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I see him being excited about it, that just makes it doubly exciting for us.â&#x20AC;? Last year, more than 30 teams signed up to play in the tournament. But, based on registrations so far, Brown is

confident theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll surpass that goal this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re over 30 already, which I think is double what we had at this time last year,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we ended up last year at 36 teams, so it looks like itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be quite a bit bigger than last year.â&#x20AC;?

Teams in the 3-on-3 tournament are made up of six players and a goalie between the ages of six and 14. Each team is guaranteed a minimum of three games over the two-day tournament. The registration fees remain the same as last year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; $280 per team, or $40 per child â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and include T-shirts, water bottles and other goodies.

Also back for another year are almost all the tournamentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sponsors, including Go Auto, 92.5 Fresh FM, Coca-Cola, Canadian Arena Products, the St. Albert Leader and St. Albert Source for Sports. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good sign for us, that they liked what they saw,â&#x20AC;? Brown said. The tournament is the same weekend as the annual Rainmaker Rodeo and Exhibition, but Brown said that he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see much conflict between the two events last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re able to do both if they want to do both,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they want to go to the carnival, they can go to the carnival; they know what their schedule is to come to our (event). I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I talked to anyone who said it was bad timing. We talked to more people who said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What a cool weekend this is. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got so many things weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got planned to do.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; If anything, it just makes it a super weekend in St. Albert.â&#x20AC;?

The St. Albert Public Library presented a study to council, with various options to address the libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s urgent space needs. Options include adding onto St. Albert Place, building a free-standing branch library, constructing a new central library and various leasing options.

Prior to 2014, this program was administered by the Alberta government. The City will now have to administer the program. Council would have to amend policy to prevent eligible senior homeowners from receiving both the provincial and City tax assistance programs.

Coun. Sheena Hughes moved to have the $22,000 used to place artwork on the grit interceptor near Perron Street placed back into the Utility Reserves from the Art Acquisition fund and that funds for such future artwork come from the Art Acquisition fund, not Utility Reserves.

Eligible senior homeowners can now apply to receive both the $100 City tax credit and the provincial tax deferral.

The amendments allow for the creation of the public committee with revised Terms of Reference to deal with potential conflict of interest scenarios and for Administration to continue its research for civic space needs with input from stakeholders and the public committee.

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m super excited! But a deal on the show doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily mean a deal. I was fortunate enough that, before the show aired, we were able to come to an agreement and make a deal. So as far as due diligence and that process, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a long process, but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always aware where you are. But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m super happy where it is right now.

I was familiar with where she was going with it, and I personally feel thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best avenue for the product and for the brand. And compared to Bruce (Croxon, who offered $200,000 for 50 per cent of the company), if I had gone with him, it would have turned out to be a licensing deal with the distributor who deals with Weber and Broil King. So the deals were identical; the difference was equity versus no equity. I really respect Arlene, and I know sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taken on projects like infomercial products and been successful with them. I think the FlavorFork, outside of anything, has a really strong brand and will stand alone.

It seemed like it was a pretty good edit to what I remember of it. Now, this was a year ago â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it was April 3 that I went there, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 15 days short of a year, almost. But it flowed very closely to what I remember.

I think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m gonna learn a lot in the next 12 months.

And then specifically for the Den, when I decided I was going, I went and did my initial audition, I did it without asking (NABI) for help ... with my 60-second elevator pitch. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t capture them in the first 60 seconds, you might as well turn around and walk out of the show. I kind of got it, but when I was there, I was like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Yes, this is what it is.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; That beginning part, that was my complete pitch. ... (NABI) really helped me dial that in and focus on it and figure out what it was.

N_XkĂ&#x2039;jk_\e\okjk\gefn]fipflXe[]fi =cXmfi=fib6 The next step for me is to continue thinking about the business and the idea. As you heard on the show, I have some ideas, some other product lines that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to possibly consider. I also want to play out this summer and see what happens (with FlavorFork). Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big push to get into the U.S. and see what it does, which is another huge component of the business plan; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why â&#x20AC;&#x153;Flavorâ&#x20AC;? is spelled with no U. ... How fast can you ramp up something like this? How quickly is it going to be accepted? What kind of dollars are going to be put behind it? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to be working with (Venture Communications) on finding out what the plan is, executing the plan and going from there. ... I think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m gonna learn a lot in the next 12 months [laughs]. Photo courtesy CBC

A group of young environmentalists from Leo Nickerson Elementary School are taking to the stage to spread their message. Three Grade 6 classes from the school are busy putting the final touches on their original play Our World, Our Future, which hits the stage for two shows at the Arden Theatre on Thursday, March 27. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re never too young or too small to make a difference in the world,â&#x20AC;? said Nickerson drama teacher Kerry McPhailHayden. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think these kids will make a difference.â&#x20AC;? The environmental theme was one that the students at Nickerson felt very strongly about. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing to teach other people about, because we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to wreck our city with all the stuff weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing,â&#x20AC;? said student Sarah Hay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to make sure everybody knows about the stuff theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing and make sure they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wreck the city.â&#x20AC;? Jordyn Bland plays one of the main characters in the play, the girl who â&#x20AC;&#x153;likes money and loves to go shopping but isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that much into the environment,â&#x20AC;? as she describes it. Over the course of the play, though, her character comes around and realizes the importance of protecting the environment. She said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been â&#x20AC;&#x153;really funâ&#x20AC;? to put the play together, but a lot of work writing and rehearsing it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the days that (McPhail-Hayden) is here â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which is Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays â&#x20AC;&#x201D; we do it during lunch and during second recess,â&#x20AC;? she said. McPhail-Hayden said the idea for the play started when she was talking with one of her students about urban sprawl taking over wildlife habitats.

Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it be cool if they could share it with younger kids and with the community?â&#x20AC;? she asked. The play was made possible thanks to an environmental initiatives grant from the City of St. Albert, and McPhail-Hayden said it was very encouraging to have that kind of support. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are going to see it, and who knows who itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to inspire?â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But even my sharing it, even by starting now as kids to think about these kids, they are making a difference.â&#x20AC;?

 

   

Not only does the play tackle environmental issues, but it is also a great way to pull together lessons students have learned over the three years that drama is offered at Nickerson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a scene thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mime, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mime allusion, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a gibberish scene where they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t actually speak English ... all these different dramatic forms that they get to play with in drama,â&#x20AC;? she said, adding that there are also a couple of musical numbers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how we can put 60-plus kids in one play.â&#x20AC;? The play has really only been in the

works since January, after the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christmas play wrapped up and students were back at school. Parents have helped a whole bunch, though, with things like building and painting set elements and making costumes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The parent community here is just amazing,â&#x20AC;? McPhail-Hayden said. Our World, Our Future takes the stage at the Arden Theatre at 1:30 and 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 27. Admission is free, but donations will be accepted for Trout Unlimited Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Yellow Fish Road program.

The finals of the St. Albert Idol competition are coming back once again to the St. Albert and District Chamber of Commerce’s Spring Lifestyle Expo and Sale, taking place April 4 to 6 at Servus Credit Union Place. “There’s a lot of talent in St. Albert, and there’s a lot of talent that comes out for this event. It’s great,” said Martha Livingstone, co-owner and voice coach at Visionary College in St. Albert, which puts on the competition each year. Qualifying events have been taking place for the past couple of weeks now, and they will continue until the expo, including at O’Maille’s Irish Pub for singers 18 and older on Thursday nights and open auditions this Saturday at the Visionary College location on St. Albert Trail. Livingstone said that she has had quite a few video entries emailed to her this year as well. Prizes vary depending on the age group, but all told they add up to about $2,000. Livingstone said she loves seeing young

singers take the stage and get some experience under their belts at St. Albert Idol. “This kind of opportunity is a great opportunity for them to get some stage experience. If they’ve had a little or even if they’ve had a lot, this kind of environment really helps them to grow as performers, whether or not they win,” she said.

This season’s superhero style tip: black is the new red, white and blue. “They keep working on it, and it’s supposed to get more comfortable, but it always feels like it gets tighter,” Chris Evans says of the new, sleek, covert-opsstyle outfit he wears in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. “Of course, once you get a good sweat under it, it makes for a better fit. You know you’re going to have to live in it for four or five months.” Friends — and at least one foe — of the First Avenger assembled at the Beverly Hilton Hotel last week to promote the Jason Bourne-ish Winter Soldier. Among them: Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Anthony Mackie (Cap’s new sidekick Falcon), Sebastian Stan (the Winter Soldier of the title, who played Cap’s old sidekick Bucky Berger in the first movie) and Disney/Marvel producer Kevin Feige. Winter Soldier is a “trust no one” epic, with car chases, mass destruction, misuse of mass surveillance, and a civil war within the super-secret organization S.H.I.E.L.D. — brought to you by Anthony and Joe Russo, directors

of, um, TV’s Arrested Development. “The key to making these movies different each time is to be able to move pieces around on the playing board and subvert expectations — to make the world different at the beginning of Avengers 2 than it was at the end of Avengers 1,” Feige said of the plot, which pretty much flips the S.H.I.E.L.D. gameboard over. “When we met with Joe and Anthony, they were very clear and had very lofty ambitions. They were like, we want to make the best car chase of any Marvel movie, and maybe the best car chase of all time.’ “And I said, ‘Well, that sounds good,’” Feige added with a laugh. In the brothers’ defence, Joe Russo added, “The process isn’t very different. You still go to set. You still direct actors. You have a crew, and an infrastructure at Marvel that is different from anywhere else in the world, full of talented and intelligent people to get your vision across. “Comedy isn’t very different from action, it requires choreography. So if you’re filming a (comedy) bit, the choreography and timing isn’t very different from stuntwork or a fight scene. It’s all a dance.” Meanwhile, Winter Soldier marks the most screen-time

yet for Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff, a.k.a Black Widow. Feige confirmed there are several treatments for a Black Widow movie on the Marvel drawing board, and that her role in the upcoming Avengers: Age Of Ultron will be pivotal. For her part, Johansson said her recent role of Maggie in Broadway’s Cat On A Hot Tin Roof was “the most physically challenging thing you can do. I felt in pretty solid shape after that run.” For the rest of her regimen, she said, “you train like a dude and eat a bunch of lettuce.” And then there’s the newest professional relationship revealed in Winter Soldier, between Nick Fury and his mentor Alexander Pierce (Robert Redford), S.H.I.E.L.D.’s liaison to the World Security Council. “I met Robert in a lot of situations when I was going to Sundance when I was a young actor,” Jackson said. “And that first morning (of shooting), we sat down and talked about a lot of different things. We talked about life, we talked about golf, we talked about movies. “So by the time we got on set, it looked like we had some past in some darker, more medieval state of counter-insurgency. And it was a great experience.”

You know that post-apocalyptic movie about an empowered young woman who fights her way to freedom? You know, the one taken from a best-selling trilogy of books for young adults. No, not The Hunger Games, the other one. It speaks to the parallels betweeen the two projects, that the filmmakers of Divergent will only refer coyly to “that other movie.” One who doesn’t shy away from it is Shailene Woodley, who plays the heroine Tris, a conflicted rebel in a future Chicago where people have assigned roles in life, and to multitask is to court execution. Given that the book series by Veronica Roth has sold five million copies, and Woodley has a three-movie contract, she contacted the only person in the world who’d understand what she faces — Jennifer Lawrence. “We had one conversation. I still have yet to meet Jen, which is kind of funny because I’m talking about her so much right now,” the outspoken and eccentric Woodley told the press last week.

“But yeah, I sent her an e-mail because I was curious, y’know? “She’d gone from doing indie films to doing Hunger Games, which is a giant film obviously. And I wondered if it had changed her life in positive ways, if she was happy with her decision. Because I had zero reference.” Her advice? “She said, ‘Don’t do anything stupid, don’t do drugs, and don’t make a sex tape. And don’t go to Whole Foods the day the movie opens, and other than that you’ll be fine.’” The tale of the tape might suggest JLaw might be better able to handle herself as a post-apocalyptic warrior than the physicallyslighter Woodley (who first grabbed attention as George Clooney’s daughter in The Descendants). But Woodley is unusual. Her hobbies include survivalism — literally being dropped in the forest with only a hatchet and a gun and left to fend for herself. “I started studying indigenous cultures a few years ago. I’m really inspired by their lifestyles and how they lived. And part of that was knowing how they survived in the wild and how to heal

themselves from the plants that grew around them.” Of late, she’s been studying urban survivalism. “I realized, ‘Cool, I know how to make fire from sticks and I know how to make shelter, but I live 90 per cent of my life in an urban environment.’ Especially with the draught in California right now and the resources we’re depleting so quickly, I thought it would be an interesting skill-set to have.” So she’s perfect for the world of Divergent, set 100 years after “the war.” But she also found personal connections to Tris, a girl born to a family of Abnegation (a selfless faction, dedicated to political life and society), but who longs to belong to the more exciting Dauntless, the soldiers, who live reckless lives of martial training (meanwhile, Jeanine, played by Kate Winslet, and the brainiacs of Erudite quietly covet power). “A lot of Tris has resonated with me, because when I was her age, maybe 17 or 18, I was going through a similar struggle. I was raised by two psychologists who are the most beautiful, selfless people. So compassion and empathy are engrained into my system.”

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty weird that everywhere I go, people tell me how good I look,â&#x20AC;? says Canadian comedyscene legend Mike MacDonald. â&#x20AC;&#x153;First time in my life, really. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to diet or do any kind of exercises. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a program I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recommend to anybody.â&#x20AC;? The veteran of three decades of Just For Laughs galas and umpteen comedy specials is in Toronto for two reasons, one good and one vitally necessary. The good: The deadpan comic, one of the founding performers of the Yuk Yukâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chain, is

booked for two indie club shows this weekend, Saturday at the East End Comedy Revue at the Dominion On Queen, and Sunday a few blocks away at the â&#x20AC;&#x153;cannabis friendlyâ&#x20AC;? comedy venue Underground. As the old line goes, MacDonald is not only happy to be here, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happy to be anywhere. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost exactly a year since MacDonald received a liver transplant in Toronto following a brink-of-death bout with Hepatitis C that saw him move home to Ottawa from Los Angeles for care, and a fundraising drive by the Canadian comedy community that attracted media attention. But he has indeed rebounded big-time, performing 100 shows since his first post-

operative set in August. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny, people ask if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m on tour,â&#x20AC;? MacDonald says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Lady Gaga tours. I show up at places.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? MacDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career has been tryingly bumpy, with lifestyle shocks that have fed his comedy â&#x20AC;&#x201D; drug addiction in the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;80s, a diagnosis of bipolar disorder and now transplant patient. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The weirdest moment was about a month into my recovery,â&#x20AC;? MacDonald says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was still in the hospital and I left my hospital TV on. And there in the middle of the night was me on Just For Laughs, like, 10 years ago. It was like me looking at me looking at me. And then I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember a word of what I was saying.â&#x20AC;?

Spring is ready to blossom in St. Albert, and so is one of the city’s biggest spring traditions. The St. Albert Lifestyle Expo and Sale, hosted by the St. Albert and District Chamber of Commerce, will once again take over Servus Credit Union Place from April 4 to 6, with close to 200 exhibitors showing off their latest and greatest offerings. “Things are shaping up really well,” said Chamber president and CEO Lynda Moffat. So far, Moffat said the Chamber is seeing brisk booth sales, and they are already close to capacity. “I think our exhibitors are certainly responding to the excellent turnout we had last year at the expo,” she said. “And we’re looking forward to the same thing again this year for them.” This year, the Chamber is adding a “Taste of St. Albert” event to the expo, inviting local restaurants to give patrons a little sample of what they have to offer. “That’s something new that we’re very excited about,” Moffat said, noting that this would somewhat replace the usual food court the show has had in

previous years. “We’re thinking that this will be our first year, but we’ll grow that to be a bigger part of the show in future years. The space we had set aside filled up so fast, and I think people will love it.”

But there will be plenty of old favourites back again this year, including the St. Albert Idol singing competition and the petting zoo. “Idol is such a huge part of the show,” Moffat said, “and I think the raceway is going to become that too. ... We couldn’t have our trade show without the petting zoo. It’s gearing up to be an awesome show.” Moffat added that the expo is a great opportunity for businesses to get in front of thousands of potential customers in a short period of time. “If your marketplace is St. Albert and northern Alberta, the greater St. Albert region ... it’s a wonderful opportunity for businesses to showcase their products and services, because you’ve got so many people,” she said. “And for the people coming to the show, it gives them a chance to find suppliers for things they may have been looking for. If you’re there, you’re right in front of their faces as they’re walking by. I think it’s incredibly important.” For more information on the 2014 St. Albert Lifestyle Expo and Sale, visit www.stalbertchamber. com.

JLED<;@8E<NJJ<IM@:<JÆThe ratio of Canadian household debt to income in the fourth quarter of 2013 slipped from a record high while net worth rose, bolstering the Bank of Canada’s belief that the housing market is in for a soft landing. The central bank and the Conservative government have long fretted that near record low interest rates might prompt people to take on too much debt, especially big mortgages that could increase the chances of a housing crash. Statistics Canada said the ratio of household debt to income in the fourth quarter of 2013 slipped to 164.0 per cent from a record 164.2 per cent in the third quarter. Last week, the Bank of Canada said recent data supported its view that there would be a soft landing in the nation’s housing market and the household debt-to-income ratio would stabilize. “Today’s results should be mildly
