Custom Bikes Of The Week: 20 August, 2017

The best cafe racers, scramblers and bobbers of the week
Dustin Kott returns with the bike he said he’d never build. Plus a sleek Harley Super Hooligan racer, and a Benelli restomod from a pair of Barcelona dental surgeons. It’s a toothsome selection this week.

There are, of course, exceptions to the rule.

‘We’ve been frozen out’: First Nations concerned about Lloydminster casino project

Some Saskatchewan First Nations are angry after they say they were dealt out of a multimillion-dollar Lloydminster casino project.

“It’s not fair. We have people suffering in our communities,” said Thunderchild First Nation Chief Delbert Wapass.

“We’ve been frozen out.”

The casino was originally a project involving 10 First Nations as partners. Now, two of them — Thunderchild and the Big River First Nation — say they are being left out of some project components.

CBC News has also spoken to band councillors remaining in the group who question the deal. They say they’ve been left in the dark on financial details and have yet to see any paperwork.

“I’m concerned, as are other councillors, that there isn’t enough transparency,” said Poundmaker Cree Nation headman (councillor) Milton Tootoosis.

The casino’s sod-turning occurred last month. Officials from the provincial government, Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations, Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority and a handful of First Nations

Remembering Jason: The struggles and death of a Spokane Valley Eagle Scout – The Spokesman

Jason Pederson liked to go snipe hunting.

He’d lead his fellow Eagle Scouts into the woods in the cool of night, flashlights in hand and uniforms on. You can only catch a snipe when it’s dark out.

They would give the group’s newcomer a paper bag and tell him they’d chase the imaginary bird toward him. Suppressing giggles, they’d run away and leave their victim in the dark to discover they’d been duped.

Jason loved it. He loved any prank, really, and he was at home in the woods.

He and his troop would have campouts, hikes and 50-mile canoe trips. As an adult, Jason would go out into the forest for a few days with nothing but a sleeping bag and the bare essentials, just to be alone.

He went outside to grow closer to himself and his family. After Scouts, he did it to cope with trauma. Throughout his life, it was his

AROUND THE TOWN: Franks’ disappearance featured on ID Channel

A former Cumberland Countian who attended Cumberland County High School is the subject of a new Investigation Discovery Channel show. Eric Franks’ story is featured on season eight of “Disappeared.” The premiere of episode nine, which is devoted entirely to Franks, premiered over the Memorial Day weekend.

Franks, with whom I attended church in the ’80s when his late father, Jim, was the minister, has been missing since March 2011 from Saginaw, MI. His mother, Jo Ann Adams Franks, is now living in Archbold, OH. She and her daughter, Beth, Eric’s sister, have been tirelessly searching for Eric since he went missing in Michigan six years ago. Jo Ann appears throughout the segment.

Eric Franks had journeyed to Michigan in late 2010 after learning from a former girlfriend he had a 15-year-old daughter. He stayed in the Miller Motel for more than five months. He checked out on March

Dover-shot film ‘Jason’s Letter’ premieres June 11

Independent film, shot in Dover, examines a small town after a police shooting

Terrance Tykeem is fulfilling a promise to the people of Dover by debuting his latest film project, “Jason’s Letter,” in the Capital City.

The one-time-only screening will take place June 11 at the Schwartz Center for the Arts.

About 75 percent of the 94-minute film was shot in Dover, and Tykeem told Mayor Robin Christiansen he’d premiere the completed project here as compensation for using city facilities, including City Hall and the public library.

The film shows the impact of a 12-year-old’s reaction to the police shooting of a young black man in a small, unnamed town.

“Jason’s Letter” stars Vivica A. Fox, Quinton Aaron, Claudia Jordan, Joe Gannascoli and newcomer Jamol Manigault as Jason McKey.

Tykeem said the movie is an examination of the racial environment in communities across America. He wants it to start people

Get Out producer Jason Blum reveals next project: Dee Rees directed horror about black lesbians in rural America

Jason Blum has made a name for himself as one of Hollywood’s most prolific horror producers, having recently worked on Get Out, Split, and The Purge.

Speaking to The New York Times, the 48-year-old — who heads Blumhouse Productions — revealed one of his many upcoming projects; a horror, directed by Mudbound’s Dee Rees, about two black lesbians haunted by some unfamiliar force. 

The duo apparently met at the Sundance Institute while giving speeches, Rees approaching Blum and offering a movie pitch: “You’ve got me and my wife, two black lesbians, and when we first moved in, we fought every day over all these little things: ‘Why is this over there? Did you move that?’ ”

“Maybe it was a ghost. Or maybe it was some other force — like us not wanting to be there or fitting in. Anyway, that’s my horror-movie pitch.”
