The Lions scored all their points with the boot when they out-muscled the Crusaders 12-3 on Saturday, the impressive display following two lacklustre tour outings in which the visitors combined for just two tries.Seymour, however, is confident that a contest against an expansive Highlanders side combined with the gradual improvement of the touring party will enable the Lions to finally start putting more points on the board ahead of the All Blacks tests.”We would be lying if we said we weren’t a little bit disappointed that we hadn’t crossed the whitewash a few more times,” the 28-year-old Glasgow Warriors wing told reporters in Dunedin.”It is only so long you want to go creating those opportunities and not finishing them off, you can only be pleased for so long about creating them. It is no good having them and not converting,” he added.”But it’s a lot easier to go finishing off those final passes, than it is to go from creating nothing.”Seymour starts in the back three with Jack Nowell and Jared Payne against the 2015 Super Rugby champions after coach Warren Gatland opted for an entirely new starting lineup, and the Scot is looking forward to facing All Blacks wing Waisake Naholo.”That’s the theme for this trip, there is a lot of talent in the back three over here and certainly Naholo fits right into that,” he added.”He is a fantastic player and a very tricky opponent but one we are looking forward to.”These are the challenges both as a team and individually that we knew we were going to face and it’s an exciting opportunity for myself and us as a backline to try to go out and hopefully get the better of them.”Following the Highlanders match, the Lions have two more tour games prior to the first of three tests against the All Blacks in Auckland on June 24.

– Advertisement -According to Bernier, Alberta is also looking at switching to permanent DST. Given the proximity and business that is done with Alberta, Bernier has a sense that most residents would choose to go with Alberta’s time then being synced with B.C.’s time. Bernier says, in order to decide what time zone the Region wants to be in, a public referendum would have to be held but it would have to wait until Alberta makes a decision on its time zone. One person, in particular, raising that question is Peace River South MLA, Mike Bernier. Since the Peace Region will be on the same time once the rest of the Province permanently springs ahead, Bernier wonders if residents of the Peace Region will want to join the Pacific Time or go with Alberta’s time. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – With the Province of British Columbia looking to set the time zone to permanent Daylight Saving Time, it raises the question as to what some areas, such as the Peace Region on Mountain Standard Time, will do once the change is enacted. Even if Alberta chooses to make the switch, there would still be an hour difference between the provinces.Advertisement
‘The Road” to ruin went through Mount St. Helens.That was one legacy of the eruption that devastated areas around the volcano on May 18, 1980.Our story Thursday on the 37th anniversary of the blast focused on research taking place on the peak. Some scientists are investigating the geological processes; others are documenting how life returns to a sterile wasteland.But the last 37 years of Mount St. Helens history includes people who really had their hearts set on that sterile wasteland. They were filming “The Road.”It’s the saga of a man, played by Viggo Mortensen, and his son trekking through an America devastated by an unspecified apocalypse. Several scenes were shot in the Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument on July 25, 26 and 27, 2008.When the film was released in 2009, The Columbian talked with Rod Ludvigsen, who was the volcanic monument’s special-use permit administrator before he retired.The filmmakers “liked the devastated area, with the standing dead trees and the trees blown down, and the limited vegetation,” Ludvigsen said.“That was the year we had half the road slumped away on the Windy Ridge highway, and there were several large fissures in the road at different locations, so we had that road closed to general-public vehicle traffic,” Ludvigsen said.
