Vets protest cuts T H U N D E R B AY

By Leith Dunick – TB Source

oy Lamore says if the Canadian government bought one less $35-million fighter jet, it wouldn’t have to close Veterans Affairs offices in smaller communities across the country. Lamore, a Second World War veteran, was in Ottawa on Thursday, speaking out against the planned closures, which will see 784 jobs lost. “To our government, don’t be shortsighted and take our dreams away. Don’t push our veterans into a corner. We’ve done enough fighting,” Lamore said, his words broadcast to gatherings across the country put on by the Public Service Alliance of Canada. The Thunder Bay office is slated to close in February 2014, with a loss of eight full-time jobs. ROD CUTBUSH: Says he’s already playing phone tag with Veterans Affairs staff.

Transit strike threat

THUNDER BAY

By Leith Dunick – TB Source ity transit workers are fed up and threatening to go on strike if contract demands aren’t soon met. Members of the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 966 last Sunday voted 99 per cent in favour of job action, which could include walking off the job. Union president Sheila Kivisto last Tuesday said her members are the second-lowest paid ATU workers in the province, adding the city is being unreasonable in its negotiating tactics. The union has been without a contract for the past 15 months. Enough is enough, she said in an interview with CKPR News. “Actual negotiations have slowed down,” she said, adding an all-day session has been scheduled with a conciliator on Wednesday. All she wants for her members is a fair deal. “That’s what I’ve always wanted, that’s what I’ve always asked for, even when I went in the very first time,” Kivisto said. “The transit workers, where we

Because we drive a bus in Thunder Bay or Sault Ste. Marie or Sudbury or wherever, we still drive a bus and we should be paid fairly, keeping in mind how much the average is out there.” Kivisto said there doesn’t seem

to be much reason for optimism as talks continue, though that could change after Wednesday’s meeting with the conciliator, she conceded. “The optimism hasn’t been there because we’ve been dealing with this for a year.” She’s taking a wait-and-see approach before announcing any next steps or what the job action might entail. She understands the impact it might have. “We are really mindful about making sure the public can get to where they need to go. We have had support from the public and we realize they still have to get places and get to work and school,” Kivisto said. “We want to keep it in mind to make sure nobody gets disrupted.” City officials had little to say about the negotiation process. “The city is working hard to get an agreement and council has been fully updated recently on the negotiations,” city manager Tim Commisso said in an email response. The union represents about 170 local members.

Cyclist killed CRIME

he cyclist involved in a recent hit and run on Algoma Street South has died, police confirmed Thursday afternoon. Richard Terrance Vrastak, 38, of Thunder Bay died from injuries he sustained from the collision that took place in the 200 block of Algoma Street South on Tuesday, Oct. 1. Police say they have charged a 32-yearold man with second-degree murder and failing to remain at the scene. Police say Vrastak was riding his bicycle southbound on Algoma Street South, travelling on the east sidewalk, when he was struck by a van being driven by a man. The victim was transported to the hospital, where he later died from his injuries while the driver of the van fled the scene. Vrastak succumbed to his injuries around 10:30 a.m. Thursday. The 37-year-old man originally charged in connection with the crash has been released. Police say their investigation led them to arrest the man they now believe was the driver of the van at the time of the

fatal incident. Sheldon Yesno, son of Nishnawbe Aski Nation Grand Chief Harvey Yesno, was charged with second-degree murder. “Throughout the investigation another person was identified as the driver of the offending vehicle,” said acting Det. Insp. Don Lewis, adding it was a combination of witness statements, video surveillance and examination of the vehicle that led them to the suspected driver. Sheldon Mark Yesno, 32, has been charged with second-degree murder and fail to remain at the scene. Yesno remains in custody. Lewis said the vehicle appears to have come into contact with the cyclist intentionally. Police say the fatal confrontation between the suspected driver and cyclist was drug related. “The investigation did reveal some confrontation and it resulted in what appears to be a drug transaction that took place early on in the investigation previous to the altercation on the street,” Lewis said. Lewis said the victim suffered extensive head injuries and a post-mortem took place last Thursday afternoon.

Idle No More protest fizzles out A B O R I G I N A L A F FA I R S By Jamie Smith – TB Source

dle No More is about the quality of people involved not quantity a small group that gathered in Thunder Bay Monday say. Groups gathered across Canada Monday coinciding with the 250 th anniversary of the Royal Proclamation, which recognized First Nations rights and started the treaty process. Locally around six people gathered at city hall to take part in the national movement. "To remind Canadians that the movement is not still dead," Erin Bottle, one of those gathered, said. "The fires and embers of this movement are still burning." Bottle said a communication error led to such a small number of people gathering locally. And no matter how many people showed up, the ones that did are ready to raise awareness for a movement that affects all Canadians. "It's not about the quantity of people that show up at our rallies but the quality," she said. "We're going to make a stand today." Environmental concerns impact everyone. Bottle pointed to the flood in 2012 as an example of how the environment doesn't discriminate. "All of us will eventually suffer when environmental catastrophes happen," she said. While most of the concerns of Idle No More deal with federal legislation, Bottle said city hall was a good place to rally as people from across the city congregate there.

Editorial EDITORIAL

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Dignity for Stop the spitting our veterans I hunder Bay’s veterans are angry. And quite frankly, they have every right to be. These men and women volunteered to serve their country and fought to maintain our freedom and way of life. The federal government made promises to take care of them for the rest of their lives. Now, when many need the services of Veterans Affairs the most, Ottawa has decided to close down satellite offices in smaller communities across Canada. Thunder Bay is on the chopping block. Veterans have been handed a 1-800 number, their records moved to such accessible communities as Winnipeg, North Bay and Prembroke, Ont. Instead of a face-to-face encounter when problems arise, our veterans are being put on hold or forced to play phone tag. This is bureaucracy at its finest, an example of a government trying to balance its books on the backs of those the country can least afford to nickel and dime. As Roy Lamore said at a national protest in Ottawa, without our veterans, Canada’s national dish might be sauerkraut and sausages. Our veterans deserve better. Canadians deserve better. Keep our office open, even if it’s only a couple of days a week. It’s money well spent and the least we should do.

To the editor: ncreasingly I’m seeing a very disgusting, dirty and dangerous habit around town – at bus stops, near the mall, by people walking together, and that is spitting. It seems to be some kind of statement from mostly young people. To me it seems to be a thoughtless, mindless action, although it could be taken personally when a glob lands very near your feet. Sometimes I have to watch where I place my feet while walking, so that I don’t go sliding on someone’s sputum. Doggie-do is no more repulsive to me! Hygiene used to be important in school and a poster emphasized how germs spread from the mouth and nose by stating: “When you cough, or sneeze or sniff, be quick, my lad, with your handkerchief.” Spitting was also included in the teaching of how to help prevent the spread of contagious diseases. Nowadays most young people don’t carry a handkerchief, or even a tissue, and there may be no one warning them of the germs that are carried in spittle/sputum. Anyone can unknowingly have an active case of tuberculosis, or be a carrier, and each time those unknown people spit they are spreading their germs far and wide. Also sharing anything that touches the mouth can pass the germs on. Just as sharing your cap or comb can possibly give you lice, so sharing a drink, a tooth brush, a lipstick, cutlery or a kiss can pass TB germs to you. We can’t ‘catch’ cancer, but we can do a lot to keep from catching a cold, the flu, or even tuberculosis, which can take years to cure. Tuberculosis used to be an even more common disease and deadlier than cancer, but it can still be spread to you by someone who doesn’t know they have it, and you don’t know they have it. Spitting helps spread those ailments, so please heed the above advice. We don’t urinate on our streets as we know it’s indecent and dirty. It’s time we frowned upon, and stopped those who spit on our streets as it is also indecent, dirty, repulsive and dangerous to our health. Muriel Squires, Thunder Bay

Tempered support To the editor:  am all in support of a smoking ban near hospital entrances, but I disagree with making ill patients who have a long time addiction to smoking, wheel themselves out into the cold winter night to get thier fix and put themselves into further decline or at risk for secondary health problems.

that cigarette to calm thier nerves. The patch does not work for everyone and I understand that nonsmokers have no sympathy for the smokers but please try to understand their plight. The older senior smokers grew up in a different time where smoking was the norm and pushed upon them by the cigarette companies and just because a different generation says to stop, it is not that simple. Why can the hospital not have a closer area for the smokers that is the back doorway where it is not a high traffic entrance and could affect many people. I feel there will be more health concerns with ill patients who put themselves at risk due to secondary issues they contract out of the danger to drag themselves out of bed and off medical equipment into the cold night unattended. Now if having sympathy for the sick and stressed smoker is not your thing, then how about the tax dollars that will be spent because so said patient has now become sicker and needs that bed longer to heal

because the patch did not work and they needed to venture outside to destress. Just give them a specific smoking area that gives them dignity, respect and does not put them in harms way. Just my perspective from a hardcore non-smoker. Laura Morine, Thunder Bay

Moose fine warranted To the editor: am a hunter so thank you to the people who reported the men caught riding the moose in Northwestern Ontario; this is not right to any animal. I am sure they would not like it if someone did this to them. So what gives them the right to do this to any animal? I think $2,500 is a small price to pay. I hope they think before doing this again. Keep up the good work.

Food to waste

NEW HOME

Wasting good food has shed light on bizarre global situation By J.R. Shermack Special to TB Source wonder what food banks across the country would do with billions of dollars worth of safe, nutritious, wholesome food. Food in Canada has always been cheap and plentiful but sometimes when you get too much of a good thing you don’t appreciate it any more. Canadians take their daily bread pretty much for granted even though it’s a necessity of life just like clean air and fresh water, also in good supply in our country. When I was growing up there were two hard and fast rules at the table – eat what’s put in front of you and clean your plate. Most Canadians of my generation can remember hearing something like that from their parents but these days we have changed our relationship with food. We now have sophisticated palettes and exotic tastes and if we don’t like what’s on our plate we complain bitterly and scrape it into the garbage, tons of it every day. In fact, wasting perfectly good food in Canada and other countries around the world has shed light on a bizarre global situation. Worldwide there are 1.2 billion obese or overweight people while at the same time 860 million others are malnourished or undernourished. It is estimated that 40 per cent of

SPLASH: A swimmer does a flip into Widnall Pool in this July 2013 photo.

City pools need cash CITY HALL

By Jamie Smith – TB Source hen it comes to funding a neighbourhood pool, a local group wants the city to dive right in. A report to city council Monday shows that the city's three outdoor pools need some major repairs in the coming years in order to stay afloat. Dease Pool, built in 1911, will need nearly $1.2 million by 2016 in order to replace the liner and deck of the pool as well as install showers to meet current health and safety regulations. It's recommended that the city start looking at replacing the pool altogether, which would come in at around $3.1 million. Coun. Iain Angus is worried that once the current pool is demolished, an estimated $180,000 cost, there isn't enough room on that site to rebuild. That would leave the city looking elsewhere in the neighbourhood. "The reality is we don’t have much open space in that area,” he said. While Dease has the biggest price tag and the most work to do, city council heard from the Committee for the Future of Heath Park Pool. The report recommends a $282,000 upgrade to that in the fall of 2014. But the group said it's a good time for the city to start thinking about the facility and nearby green space long-term. The pool, built in 1953, doesn't have the amenities of a place like Widnall, which sees more than double the amount of swimmers that Heath does every year. "We don’t want just a fixup,” co-chair Bob Hupka said. The pool has been a place for the neighbourhood to gather. As more young families move to the Westfort area, it will only become more important in the years to come Hupka said. When the pool was built it was to keep children from swimming in the nearby Kam River. Children today still need a place to learn how to swim Hupka said. "This is a life skill that’s pretty important in our area of lakes and rivers,” he said. As it was a first report, council accepted it and will discuss and vote on the recommendations next month.

Kitchen fires hazardous

Students at St. Patrick High School learn the dangers of unattended cooking

RV WINTERIZING

T H U N D E R B AY

By Leith Dunick – TB Source ooking can be deadly. That’s the message firefighters delivered Tuesday to Grade 11 and 12 students at St. Patrick High School, kicking off fire-prevention week with some startling statistics on just how dangerous an unattended stovetop can be. According to Fire Chief John Hay, kitchen fires are the No. 1 cause of residential fires and the second leading cause for residential fatalities. Seventy-one per cent of all fires occur in the home, with one-fifth of those related to cooking. Thirty-seven per cent of all injuries from fires are caused by cooking fires, three-quarters occurring when someone attempts to put out the flames. Hay said kitchen fires are largely preventable, which is why he wanted the message delivered to the city’s youth, hoping they’ll take it home with them and reinforce it with their parents. It only takes a few seconds for things to get out of hand, he added. “I think people get complacent. They’ll cook french fries 100 times and nothing goes wrong,” Hay said, pointing to a weekend fire that could have turned deadly had it not been for an alert passerby. “They’ll get distracted by a phone call or a TV show or a noisy kid for just a moment and that’s all it takes.” There’s no better way to deliver the dangers of kitchen fires than by instilling it in school-aged children, who are not only

High school kids, they bring that message home to their parents. Their parents are maybe a little old-school when it comes to cooking at home,” Hay said. “But it’s hard to tell your kid, ‘No, you’re wrong’ when they’ve heard it from the fire chief and the fire marshal, that they’ve got to take better care in the kitchen.” Diego Villaneuva, a 16-year-old Grade

12 student, said he wasn’t surprised at how lethal kitchens can be. “I’m aware that it’s a big cause (of fires) and it’s very dangerous to be in the kitchen. At the same time, it’s a really good thing,” Villaneuva said. “I was surprised at a few of the statistics they gave us, but it wasn’t too big of a surprise.” It’s a message he plans to take home to his family. “For sure, it’s a really important message to get out there, to prevent small things like little fires. It’s a good way to go home, tell people and spread the word.”

This will be a great starting point for them to get some funding and get the ball rolling and it will open more doors for them in the future,” Hartwick said. The four-stage program invites participants to submit their idea online, where the public can read about it and vote for their favourite, the winning entry getting a share of the $15,000 in prize money Tbaytel has put forward. The first seasonal campaign will focus on education. Katie Crowe, the corporate brand communication manager at Tbaytel, said the program was designed to solicit new ideas from the public to make the city a better place to live. “Anyone across Northwestern Ontario in our serving territory can submit an idea and then the fun can begin with voting,” Crowe said. “Once you have a good idea, we’re encouraging you to share it. We’re encouraging you to campaign for your idea and get

The top six ideas will be deemed semifinalists, with the overall winner getting $5,000 and the other five get $2,000 apiece. Tbaytel CEO Dan Topatigh said it’s all about encouraging innovation in the community. “We are very excited to be introducing Tbaytel for Good because it

is a program that will give us an excellent sense of where the need for support exists as well as what really matters to the people who live and work where we do,” Topatigh said. Entries may be submitted through late November, with voting ending shortly afterward. The education campaign winners will be announced on Dec. 12, with the next campaign set to begin on Jan. 6, 2014.

Missing women vigil T H U N D E R B AY

By Jodi Lundmark – TB Source rowing up in a small northern town, Patricia McGuire often heard about women going missing and later found murdered. That’s what brought McGuire out on her lunch break to the Sisters in Spirit Vigil held at the Ontario Native Women’s Association Friday afternoon to honour the more than 600 missing and murdered Aboriginal women in Canada. “I think it’s an important issue,” said McGuire, who was raised in Macdiarmid, Ont. “I think this is a Canadian issue. I came out so I can talk to people and let people share stories and realize this is a human rights issue in Canada.” About 100 people attended the Sisters in Spirit Vigil in Thunder Bay, one of more than 200 Canada-wide events. The vigil was started by the Native Women’s Association of Canada and ONWA media and communications officer Maryanne Matthews said the event is not only to honour the missing and murdered women, but also to pay respect to the families who have lost

A recent denial by the federal government to launch a national inquiry into the issue speaks volumes about the

amount of attention the topic is receiving, added Matthews. “I think we’re making progress and we’re doing all that we can but there’s a long way to go,” she said. “I think what we need is not only support from Aboriginal communities and organizations but from everybody in Canada to stand together and demand action.” NWAC has started a petition calling for an inquiry into missing and murdered Aboriginal women.

TYRING TO PROVIDE CLOSURE: Orchid PRO-DNA’s operations manager Curtis Hildebrandt works in the lab on Monday.

Lab helping identify Lac-Megantic victims SCIENCE By Matt Vis – TB Source local DNA lab is trying to provide closure to the families of the Lac-Mégantic tragedy. The Quebec coroner’s office is enlisting the help of Orchid PRODNA, a division of GammaDynacare Medical Labs, to use a unique method of forensic identification to put a name to victims of this summer’s train derailment and explosion. Amarjit Chahal, lab director and technical leader of Orchid PRODNA, said the lab was first contacted a little more than a month ago to use their mitochondrial testing technology. Orchid PRO-DNA is the only lab in Canada to use that form of testing.

A

Nuclear DNA testing is the conventional method, and is used for most basic forensic cases as well as paternity cases. But its uses can be limited as there are only two copies of nuclear DNA in each cell, which can often become compromised in small samples. This is where the mitochondrial testing can come in handy, especially in mass disasters or historical cases. “We would use the mitochondrial DNA technology because it has hundreds of copies per cell, so we have a greater chance of getting the DNA profile,” Chahal explained. “Additionally it is used for identification of human remains from the First World War and Second World War, and the mass graves around the world where the DNA is degraded.” Chahal said he was not able to

confirm how samples the lab was working to identify, but there are eight of the 47 Lac-Mégantic victims that are still waiting to be identified. A lot of the work the lab does involves the identification of victims from mass casualty situations, and Chahal said the workers take comfort in providing answers. “These cases it is an incredible feeling for our staff to provide closure to these families whether they are remains from First and Second World War or remains from mass disaster situations,” he said. In addition to the mass casualty cases, the lab is becoming heavily involved in criminal cases. Various law enforcement agencies turn to them as a last resort to solve cases or to revive cold cases.

Pink spirit stands strong T H U N D E R B AY

By Matt Vis - TB Source hen Samantha Robinson first found out she might have breast cancer she did everything in her power to pretend it wasn’t real. However, there was no fooling the diagnosis, as the test results came back positive before her 30th birthday. Robinson, who will celebrate five years of being cancer free next summer, shared her story of survival and perseverance with the crowd gathering for the 22nd annual Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation’s CIBC Run for the Cure at the Legion Track on Sunday morning. She said when she was first going through the ordeal she tried to isolate herself, and hid the diagnosis from her mother as long as possible. Looking back, Robinson wishes she would have found help and advises people in a similar situation now to seek help. “I definitely wished I did talk to more people. It was a big burden to hold on yourself. I thought that’s what I had to do to protect everybody else around me,” she said. “The support group in Thunder Bay is amazing. There are women of all ages and they’ve helped me so much to move on to life and see there is so much out there after cancer.” The event attracted over 900 registrants braving a frigid and wet morning, with early fundraising estimates totaling upwards of $120,000. “Thunder Bay always has the spirit of the

A key aspect of this year’s installment of the event was a parade of survivors. Tittaferrante explained the committee wanted to put faces in front of the cause, and it really resonated with the crowd. “We put the parade in this year, we thought why we’re here is to recognize the people that have gone through it and survived and they’re here to make us fight even harder so that someone else doesn’t get it,” she said. However, the battle is not over for survivors after the cancer is in remission. They are often left with both the physical and emotional scars of the process, which

can be difficult to overcome. Robinson underwent a double mastectomy as well as subsequent reconstructions. “The fact that you’re still living with it and the memories, and you change so much of your life after it,” she shared. “You’re not the same person. Most people have gone through body changes, emotional changes and I found that I learned so much about myself through it all. Knowing you have all these people around you, even though they don’t know you, supporting you is amazing. Without these events it would be tough for people to get up and move on.” There is more good news on the horizon for Robinson. In addition to celebrating her five year mark next summer, she will also get married.

Fall colours make spectacular sight Gold and orange leaves wonderful this time of year love this time of year. I love the colour, the crisp mornings, all of the trappings of autumn. Almost all of the trees that change clothes come autumn have done so. Of course they don’t do it all at once but from where I’m watching, gold and oranges reign supreme. There is a spot on our road where the flat and straight ends in a short hill that dips to the left and then curves around to the right before ending at the highway. It isn’t very long but that is where you first notice falling leaves. Add to that the fact that there are a couple of sugar maple trees whose branches loom over the part of the road where the bend to the right begins and the steadily increasing

FRED JONES RURAL ROOTS carpet of leaves gathering on the road is shot through with a mixture of reds and oranges. On a sunny day, it fairly takes your breath away. This is the time of year when the weather can change dramatically. The sun is shining, the sky above is a brilliant blue, but perhaps the horizon is charcoal black. You are driving down the road with the sun doing its light-show thing on the trees but behind it is dark. Magnificent. Tempting though it might be to takes one’s hands off the steering wheel to applaud this gorgeous display, careening into the

ditch isn’t an option. So the poplars, birch, and few maples about which we might boast in this part of the province are all dressed up for the fall fashion show. The latecomers are the tamarack the only members of the coniferous clan whose needles turn colour – a beautiful gold – and shed them like their deciduous neighbours. I was looking out of the large picture window in our living room, occasionally sipping from my mug of evening tea. The sun had dipped below the tree line to the west causing the swath of forest to the east and south to blaze with a golden hue. I’ve written before about this phenomenon I call Ross Light, coined by the late Sigurd Olsen, one of my favourite outdoors writers. He had a friend, a photographer named Ross who only took pictures of nature during the two periods of day when shafts of sunlight slanted in such

a way as to bring out the gold in everything. Hence the name “Ross Light” stuck. While surveying the scene to the south, I saw a lone tamarack standing in the midst of a stand of scotch and red pine. The needles on the tamarack had completely changed colour from that pale green of summer to the gold of autumn. Not only that, Ross Light just happened to arrive while I was watching. I got a hint of what Moses must have seen with the Burning Bush, or so my imagination told me. This lone member of the tamarack tribe blazed. Once I could wrench my gaze away I saw that the tree was the only one of all the tamarack growing on that part of our land that had changed its coat. The others would shortly follow suit. When I drive to town, I have a choice of two routes. I can drive down

to the Slate River valley and then along Highway 61 that allows for views of the Nor’westers. Dotted on the mountain sides are stretches of red and sugar maple. Driving the other route takes me to the Trans-Canada where I see on either side of the highway, rows of tamarack. After all of the other leaves have fallen from their branches what remains are the tamarack, golden and if the sun is bright, blazing before their needles too are freed from their branches. This is the route I choose once the forest has become leafless. I remember this autumn when the first leaves fluttered down as I drove my favourite section of our road. Years before, daughter Beth was beside me. It ws a windy day. Suddenly, falling leaves seemed to be everywhere. Beth grabbed the handle above the passenger door: “Whoa! Holy flying leaves, Batman!”

Laser therapy and chiropractic care aser therapy has been in existence since the early ’60s in Russia and is an integral part of their hospital system with up to 25 laser units in their laser therapy departments. Why? Because relative to the costs of surgeries and medications and the cost of treating the side effects of these medications, laser therapy is inexpensive, it works and there are relatively few side effects. There are more than 24,000 articles published on the scientific benefits of laser therapy and there were 17 English speaking national laser therapy associations. We use the cold laser therapy in our office to treat pain, inflammation, swelling and scar tissues from surgeries and injuries. We also do smoking cessation and weight loss programs. We have had a number of doctors in our office for disc problems in their neck and lower backs that they wanted to resolve without going under the knife for surgery. Chiropractic care is based on the fact that your nervous system controls the function and healing of every cell, tissue, organ and system in your body. If there is a misalignment of your spine, this may create endangering stresses on your nerves and nervous system that will result in symptoms, either immediately or down the

road when the pressures and stresses become worse with time. A thorough consultation, examination, computer scans of the spinal column and digital x-rays and MRIs, if necessary, help your chiropractor to locate and correct the misalignments (subluxations). Chiropractors do very gentle spinal adjustments with their hands or high-tech instruments to re-align the spinal vertebra with the resulting decrease in nerve stress, tension and pain. What does your nervous system control? Everything! It’s critical to look after your spine and nervous system on a regular basis, your whole life.

A good night's sleep is essential for a healthy heart and lifestyle he value of sleep should not be underestimated. Sleep is as important as diet and exercise in a healthy lifestyle. The European Society of Cardiology has found that short sleep duration is associated with harmful results such as higher incidences of obesity, blood pressure, hypertension, cholesterol, haemoglobin A, and triglycerides, all of which are directly associated with a higher cardiovascular risk. The National Sleep Foundation recommends that an adult should sleep an average of seven to nine hours for optimal health, so a few bedroom tips will help to give you proper rest. An easy solution to prevent unwelcomed sleep interruptions is to soundproof your bedroom and turn it into a sanctuary. Sound dampening is becoming a requirement for modern families, so if you have the opportunity to re-insulate your home, soundproofing insulation is an excellent choice to escape the everyday hustle and bustle. Stone wool insulation, for example, is a top choice for professional recording studios. This material is an excellent acoustic barrier that actually absorbs the sound. For homeowners, retailers point to a performance tested product called, Roxul Safe 'n' Sound mineral wool insulation. It provides higher sound absorption against low frequency (bass) ranges that other types of insulation struggle to block. A sleep-conducive environment is dark. Consider blocking out outside lights and the early morning sunshine with black-out curtains. A dark environment will ensure your body continues to rest for the necessary amount of time instead of waking up as the sun rises.

orking in the fashion industry I have come across some funny and amusing language. Here are my favourite catch phrases and terms that are floating around in the fashion world. Canadian Tuxedo – At first I thought that the Canadian tuxedo would have been a snowsuit or I thought for sure that this look would consist of some element of plaid. To my surprise it was neither. When someone says, “Hey look at that guy wearing a Canadian tuxedo” you can be assured that he will be wearing denim on denim. I don’t know how this funny phrase escaped me but I recently came across it when I was looking through the pictures from the most recent Paris Fashion week and Kim Kardashian was said to have worn one. I think she actually looked pretty good,

oy Coran (Oct. 7, 1929 – March 22, 2013) departed this world mere months ago; yet his big band sound and legacy of the best music in town and beyond remains very much alive today. Next weekend be witness to an evening of fabulous entertainment at the Auditorium in honour of Roy Coran. What A Musical Life, a retrospective tribute to the hometown internationally recognized big band leader brims with other talents, their mentorship memories of Roy’s unwavering passion for musical excellence ever here. Proceeds from this concert go toward a scholarship in his name for students entering Lakehead Univeristy’s music department. Roy’s daughter Debbie met with the Source at one of the rehearsals. This is her reply for where she thinks her father’s music always resides. “It was everything and all of what he did. His uncle played the saxophone, had a band; for my dad that was just what he wanted to do ever since childhood. He didn’t go to high school; sure, his mother wanted him to go to school but he didn’t want to, because for him it was always about the music. Inside, in his heart and soul, did he have a choice? No, I don’t think so.” At this point Danny Johnson’s ears honed in on the idea of artistic genius mentioned at the start of the conversa-

By the way, Johnson, together with his own band, is part of this concert. “I don’t agree with the notion of innate genius someone might be born with. When you do something for such a long time, put in so many hours like Roy did, that is a choice. It’s a choice to take responsibility for one’s own music, and then create it up a notch. Roy, instead of going to school, practiced saxophone eight hours a day, every day. And he wasn’t just goofin’ around. He applied himself. He learned from records, from books, from his teachers; he was

constantly listening and applying himself. That’s how you get better at something: you put the time in. Genius? It’s been said, don’t remember was Frank Zappa (nice grin), or maybe it was Thomas Edison who said genius is 1% inspiration, 99 per cent perspiration. With Roy, he put the time in, he did the work. Pen and ink.” Debbie pushes back hair, is back in the conversation. “Goodness, he was always researching things! When I was at the store he would call: do you have this book? Can you get me that? Always educating himself, about music. My best thoughts, remembering my father? I still think of all the places he took me, from the time I was young. I went everywhere they played. I mean, he carried me around everywhere with him, when I was little. And, I could hear him playing in the basement, or in the bathroom – he loved to play the saxophone in the bathroom, great acoustics there. Yeah. Just, yeah. He and I were very close. The store? I grew up my whole life in the store with him, was in the store with him right up until the very end. That’s what I remember: it’s all about the music.” Conducted by Ted Vaillant and together with vocalist Hedi Beale and a host of local talent, tickets for What A Musical Life at the Auditorium box office or online.

Rooting for the bad guy s it just me or is it getting harder and harder to tell the good guys from the bad? Breaking Bad’s Walter White was a good guy. He was a teacher, a father, a husband, and then a drug dealer. Diagnosed with terminal cancer and already raising a child with cerebral palsy, he felt understandably trapped. But Walt was also a genius who decided the best way to provide for

I

his family’s future without him was by making really “good” crystal meth. Early fans emphasized that he was a good man doing the wrong thing for the right reason. Fast forward five seasons and the series ends with a very different Walt. He is a killer and a major player in the drug trade. And yet viewers still loved him. Which begs the question: at what point did he become the bad guy? And why was that OK? Some would say that the moment he decided to break the law and make crystal meth, Walt was a bad guy. Others would argue that he wasn’t the bad guy. It was the actions of others that forced his hand. Breaking Bad was a story of morality. But I have to wonder how many viewers really got the point about that slippery slope – the ease of

losing oneself while rationalizing bad behaviour and the true costs of these choices – while they were cheering Walt on amid the smoke and gunfire. What did they learn? Years after the Lone Ranger and Lassie told us about right and wrong, we’ve grown up to discover a grey area. And we like the grey. We revel in it because it gives us more leeway in our own choices – even though too much moral ambiguity is its own slippery slope.

Redemption It also gives us all a better chance at redemption. The grey is the reason why I fell for Baby’s Johnny Castle, Buffy’s Spike, The Fonz, Dr. Mark Sloan, and 90210’s Dylan. (Don’t judge me. It was a moment.) The grey is also the reason why The Blacklist’s Raymond “Red” Reddington is already joining their

and Country Store

He

ranks as a beloved bad guy this season. He’s helping to catch criminals. He’s saving lives. So we conveniently ignore that he’s been committing crimes that have cost both dollars and lives for more than 20 years. And we still don’t know why he chose to do so after training for the FBI. We want to believe he had no choice. Or that it was necessary in order to fight a greater evil. But that’s likely a pipe dream – or in his case, a pipe bomb. With Red’s ready sarcasm, manipulative intelligence and insufferable ego, he’s both attractive and … annoying. Yet, I feel he could teach us new lessons in morality. Possibly even redeem himself. Okay, so I’d never take Red home to meet Mom. But I might have him over for dinner to pick his brain and bask in his company. After I hide the silver.

Lakehead’s best land on wall of fame Stu Julius, Katya Masun, Mark Jodoin and the 1973-1976 field hockey team honoured at ceremony T H U N D E R B AY

I was going to be inducted. You have four or five months to think about what happened and this flood of memories, things you haven’t thought about in years,” she said. “It’s been pretty wonderful, pretty exciting and great to see a lot of familiar faces.” It’s been more than 30 years since Jodoin hung up his tights. The CIAU champion in 1982 in the 57-kilogram category, Jodoin was also named Canada’s most outstanding wrestler that year, 12 months after being named Lakehead’s male athlete of the year.

By Leith Dunick – TB Source t was only a matter of time before Stu Julius was inducted to Lakehead University’s Wall of Fame. That time arrived on Saturday. Julius, the architect of women’s basketball at the Thunder Bay campus, entered the prestigious wall alongside his former player, Katya Masun, the third-leading scorer in LU history. Also honoured were wrestler Mark Jodoin and the 1973-1976 women’s field hockey team. “It’s an honour and privilege for sure,” said Julius, who spent 18 years at the helm of the women’s basketball team, coaching them twice to berths at nationals. Now a high school coach in southern Ontario, Julius also served as athletic director at Lakehead from 1991 to 1999, was twice named Ontario coach of the year and compiled an overall record of 311-250, the standard by which every LU coach since has been measured.

Loved his time at LU “I think Lakehead is a very special spot, compared to all other Ontario universities. There’s no other university that gets the support from the community that this institution does. There have been some outstanding athletes on the wall of fame – and coaches – and I’m thrilled to death to about it,” he said. He looks back fondly at what he and his players were able to accomplish, both on and off the court. “We were able to put women’s basketball on the map. The first five years we went to back-to-back

We had 100 per cent graduation rate from our athletes and we hosted the national championship here four or five times,” Julius said. “We really got women’s basketball

going. When I look back at those things, it was a lot of time and effort and the community came on board with it. But I’m pretty proud of it.” Masun, Lakehead’s female athlete of the year in 1997, joined the then

Looking back, he’s proud about what he was able to accomplish. Like his fellow inductees, he was surprised to get the nod. “I was humbled when I got the phone call this spring that I’d been chosen by the selection committee that I’d received this honour,” he said Saturday. “It’s given me a chance to reflect back and think about what my accomplishments were and some of the individuals I was able to share those with.” In the team category, the field hockey team dominated the sport in the mid-‘70s, winning four straight Great Plains Athletic Conference titles, losing only a handful of games over the stretch. “It’s a great honour for our team to be here,” said coach Joan Stevenson, speaking on behalf of the team. The wall of fame was opened in 2005. Inductees are honoured every other year.

cott Morrison says his final words to his team will be to trust and believe in the coaches he’s leaving behind. Morrison, who 10 years ago arrived in Thunder Bay to coach the Lakehead Thunderwolves men’s basketball program, departs next week for Maine, where he’ll serve a season as an assistant coach in the Boston Celtics system. But first he had some unfinished business to attend to, guiding the club for one final weekend in non-conference play before hitting the road. Thanks to guards Dwayne Harvey, and rookies Henry Tan and Jamar Coke, he’ll go out a winner. Tan had a team-high 19 points Saturday night, while Harvey chipped in 15 and Coke added 13 to pace the Wolves to an 84-69 win over the visiting Brandon Bobcats. Coke, who hit a clutch three down the stretch to re-establish an eight-point lead, after the Bobcats had reduced the LU lead from 13 to five in a matter of moments, spent last year on the sidelines. The Hamilton native said it took him the entire weekend to finally feel comfortable on the floor. “I started off slow the first two games and my teammates just kept telling me keep shooting the ball and you’ll get back into your rhythm,” said Coke, who is playing through a partially torn labrum and slight shoulder fracture and plans to have surgery at season’s end. “I’ve been playing through it, just trying to play my game. I’m going to go the whole season.” Perseverance was the key to beating the pesky Bobcats, who led by two after the opening quarter, but trailed by four at the half and never took the lead again. Each time the visitors began a run, quieting

Coach just kept saying stick to the game plan and we stuck to the game plan and we stuck it out,” Coke said. The Wolves had their hands full with Brandon’s Kenonte Ramsey, whose 24 points led all scorers. Playing with four fouls for much of the third quarter, his range from outside kept the Bobcats in contention until late in the contest. After Harvey slashed to the hoop early in the fourth and extended LU’s lead to 13, Ramsey hit the first of a trio of treys in the period, the final one cutting the lead to 74-69. It was as close as Brandon would come, as the Wolves went on a 10-0 run to close out the game, capturing their second win in three

nights. “It was nice to get a win. Obviously we were hoping to go 3-0 this weekend, but I think overall for the two months we’ve been working together we’ve basically reached our goals.” Morrison said. “I thought Friday could have been better, but overall I’m happy with the guys’ efforts and the execution of the overall package.” Morrison said he will miss the day-to-day interactions of coaching the team this season. “It’s basically been my whole life for 10 years and two months,” he said. “I’ve been here for 124 months and it feels like every one of those days and months was put toward trying to get to where we are now. In a certain way, it’s satisfying for me to be able to leave for this season and know we’ve got a strong program, even if we are a little bit younger and rebuilding.”

UNIVERSITY HOCKEY By Matt Vis – TB Source

t wasn’t the opening weekend Bill McDonald was looking for. The University of Prince Edward Island Panthers scored the first five goals en route to a 7-1 beat down of the Thunderwolves in McDonald’s second game as Lakehead bench boss in CIS non-conference play at the Fort William Gardens on Saturday. The new coach was disappointed with the example set by a crew of returning players. “We made some huge, huge mental mistakes, and not by rookies either. They were by guys that have been here for a while," McDonald said immediately following the game. “I’m not laying the blame on anybody, but some of the so-called veteran guys need to play better than they did (Saturday).” The win gave the Atlantic squad a weekend sweep in their trip to Thunder Bay, the Panthers outscoring the Thunderwolves 11-2 over the two-game series. UPEI set the tone early in the contest, as they generated a flurry of quality chances that Lakehead netminder Justin

I

McDonald was able to turn aside. The floodgates opened at 11:51 of the opening frame when Jordan Mayer was able to sneak in unchecked from the blue line to tap a centring pass into a wide open net. Nearly three minutes later Chris DeSousa notched the Panthers’ second of the game, and Matt Branton scored his first of two goals on the game before the end of the period. The visitors outshot Lakehead by a 17-8 margin in the opening frame as they were all over the Thunderwolves. “They’re quick and they pressure you all the time," McDonald said of UPEI. "Not to make excuses, but you can tell they’ve played six games. It’s tough to swallow losing 4-1 and 7-1, but playing a team like this will hopefully help us down the road a little bit.” Prince Edward Island put the game on ice with a pair of goals in the first three minutes of the second, as Branton potted his second of the contest and Brock Beukeboom tallied one of his own. The two goals led Bill McDonald to give Justin McDonald a reprieve, yanking him from the of the line of fire in favour of Jeff Bosch. The coach was quick to deflect blame from his young goalie, who was making

his university debut. “McDonald held us in it. It could have been 5-0 early," he said. "When I pulled McDonald it wasn’t because he was bad, it was more or less a mercy pull. I didn’t want to see a kid in his first game maybe get disheartened, because he didn’t play a bad game.” For the second straight contest Mike Hammond provided the lone goal. The junior forward buried a power-play marker in the second period. Assists were credited to defencemen Mike Quesnele and Mitch Fillman. The Panthers added two more in the third, both by Dana Fraser, to officially put on the rout. There was a 10-minute stretch through the third period that got heated, as the teams combined to take 15 penalties and three players were tossed from the game. One bright spot McDonald identified was his team's penalty kill, that limited the Panthers to one goal on eight opportunities, but added that the team's power play leaves a lot to be desired.

BASKETBALL

By Leith Dunick – TB Source ssa Jacobsen wasn’t brought in to be a scorer. While coach Jon Kreiner was aware his rookie pivot had the capability of putting the ball in the net, he was more interested in her ability to haul in rebounds. On Saturday the Grand Marais, Minn. freshman did both, collecting 16 points and grabbing nine boards, one short of an impressive double-double, helping the Lakehead Thunderwolves stay perfect in pre-season CIS women’s basketball play. Veteran Ayse Kalkan added nine points and a team-high 14 rebounds, leading LU to a 66-61, come-from-behind win over the Manitoba Bisons, wrapping up the Zanatta Invitational with three wins in three outings. “I just sealed good and today I guess the team was looking for me,” Jacobsen said. “I just finished tonight.” It was Jacobsen who helped turn things around for the Wolves late in the third.

E

LU struggled mightily in the opening half shooting the ball, sinking just nine of 37 shots from the field and trailed 37-33, despite an 11-1 advantage on the offensive glass. Down 43-41, Jacobsen went to the line, hit a pair of free-throws, then wrapped up the third with back-to-back buckets that put the Thunderwolves ahead 47-45 after 30 minutes. “I think I was feeling a little more pressure about my free throws. I wasn’t making them in the first half. I didn’t really think about it and I started making them in the second half. That’s when I got my confidence,” Jacobsen said. “I feel pretty good. I feel like I’m improving each game and our team is improving each game.” Coach Jon Kreiner said seeing what Jacobsen can bring to the table is good to know a month before the regular season is set to begin. “We learned we’ve got a post that can be not to bad, in Essa, and how to keep getting the ball into there in different ways,” Kreiner said.

“We didn’t bring her in as a scorer. We brought her in for her toughness and her rebounding. But from all the video we watched, I knew she could score. She’s going to have a little difficult time when her right hand is taken from her. We’ve got to work on her left hand a little bit.” Overall from the post position, Kreiner likes what he sees. “We’ve done a much better job this year than we normally do, even though (Essa) is undersized,” he said. Lakehead took a five-point lead late midway through the fourth, but the Bisons battled back, tying the game 5858 with four minutes to go on a Jenilyn Monton three-pointer. But after Lindsay Inkila sank one of three free throws to put LU in front, they never looked back. Inkila provided the necessary insurance with a three that pushed the lead to six with less than 30 seconds to play. Lakehead beat expansion Algoma University on Thursday and edged Laurentian 82-80 on Friday.

Tigers rally to down Saints T H U N D E R B AY

By Matt Vis – TB Source fter starting their season with an upset victory, the Westgate Tigers were one half away from dropping their second straight senior football contest. Facing a six-point halftime deficit, Tigers quarterback Dillan Tataryn rallied his troops by throwing a pair of second half touchdowns to lead Westgate to a 27-6 victory over the St. Patrick Saints at Fort William Stadium on Friday. The Saints defence held the Tigers off the scoreboard in the first half, and Tataryn said the team rallied in the locker room at the break. “I think halftime we got everybody fired up in the change room,” said Tataryn, who completed 20 of his 25 passing attempts for 220 yards. “We got everybody doing their assignments and knowing what they had to do, and everyone was pretty pumped coming out.” Westgate head coach Mike McNally added the veteran nature of his squad can make his job a bit easier.

A

“I didn’t have to do a whole lot because we have some good leadership on the team,” McNally explained. “You could tell these guys were disappointed in how they played that first half and they were firing each other up and I walked into a room full of energy, attention, and a group of guys ready to get back out for that second half and prove the Tigers were better than they showed.” The Saints opened the scoring with a 7-yard touchdown run from Bryson Aube, which held up as the only scoring in the first half. Westgate made their first drive of the second half count, as it ended with Tataryn locating Kyle Trodd in the end zone for the major. The drive was spurred by a 40-yard completion by Tataryn to wideout Josh Whitehurst, and was also helped along by 30 yards of penalties committed by the Saints. The Tigers found the end zone through the air in the opening minute of the fourth quarter, as Tataryn connected with Jordan Fish for an 18-yard score. The ensuing two-point conversion was successful to give Westgate a two-possession lead. From there, the Tigers would not look back.

Tataryn had much more time and comfort in the pocket in the second half compared to the first, where he was constantly under duress and surrendered a fumble after taking a hard sack. “We came out flat. Our offensive line was not moving down the field,” McNally said. “We talked about how we had to get them moving and in the second half they showed they can come out and dominate.” The passing game has proven to be a vital weapon for the Tigers in the early stages of the campaign, as Tataryn has now thrown four touchdown passes to three different receivers. “He’s throwing some nice balls in practice and getting a good feel for his receivers,” McNally said of his quarterback. “We’ve got some talent catching the ball this year which is always nice.” The loss drops the Saints to 1-2. St. Ignatius remained perfect (3-0) with a 34-14 trouncing of the Hammarskjold Vikings (1-2). Two-time defending champion Churchill Trojans improved their record to 2-1 with a 45-7 thrashing of the winless Superior Gryphons (0-3).
