“He played very well,” head coach Bruce Arians said, referring to Wetzel. “Earl did a nice job. So, that’s where we’ll start the week. See how it goes.”Watford has been down this road before. He started against the Buccaneers in Week 2 after Mathis was unable to go because of a foot issue.Now it’s an ankle problem for Mathis, who needs surgery and may be lost for the season, according to Arians on Monday. The team placed Mathis on injured reserve over the weekend.Watford played the entire second half against the 49ers.Wetzel, meanwhile, entered the game midway through the third quarter. He played 29 snaps at a position he had not lined up at since training camp. It also just happened to be his first NFL game action outside of special teams.“It was huge, not having practiced it even for a while,” Arians said. “I thought he stepped up as big as anybody has in a couple years.”Wetzel, a tackle at Boston College, is in his first season with the Cardinals after being signed to the practice squad last December. Since leaving college in 2013, he had spent time on the practice squads of both the Cowboys and Colts.It’s not clear how much time Iupati might miss. Linemen Earl Watford and John Wetzel prepare for the snap during the team’s training camp practice Aug. 6. (Photo by Adam Green/Arizona Sports) “Mike Iupati has a sprained ankle,” Arians said. “I don’t know when he will return, but it was very good news that it was a sprained ankle.”Aside from Watford, rookie Cole Toner, the team’s fifth-round draft pick this year, is the only other guard on the roster.“He’s more than ready,” Arians said.The Cardinals did add Ulrick John from the Dolphins’ practice squad, but “he’s a left tackle, and we’ll look at him at right tackle. I’m anxious to see him on the field,” Arians said.The Mathis injury is big.Signed as a free agent in the offseason to help solidify the right side of the offensive line, Mathis sat sandwiched between two other new starters, center A.Q. Shipley and tackle D.J. Humphries.The Cardinals had Humphries in mind when this offseason they targeted Mathis, who was coming off a Super Bowl season with Denver and had played 11 years in the league. The team wanted some veteran experience next to a first-year starter in Humphries.That’s now gone.“I think D.J. has grown so much and has learned so much from Evan throughout OTAs this summer that he can handle it on his own now,” Arians said.Humphries played one of his better games against the 49ers. According to Pro Football Focus, Humphries surrendered only one hit and two hurries on 31 pass-blocking snaps, and he excelled as a run blocker. Comments Share TEMPE, Ariz. – They experienced the most turnover from a year ago. Now five weeks into the season, there comes more change for the Arizona Cardinals offensive line.It’s not a matter of next man up, but next men up.John Wetzel and Earl Watford are expected to replace left guard Mike Iupati and right guard Evan Mathis, respectively, when the Cardinals host the New York Jets on Monday Night Football.Wetzel and Watford filled in when the two starting guards got hurt in San Francisco. LISTEN: Bruce Arians, Cardinals head coach Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Your browser does not support the audio element. Offensive line-play is going to be key this week. The Cardinals are going to want to run the ball, but doing so against the Jets won’t be easy.Despite their 1-4 record, the Jets have allowed the fourth-fewest rushing yards (342), while only the Packers are stingier against the run in yards per attempt and yards per game.The Jets have also shown the ability to get after the quarterback. Their 12 sacks are tied for the eighth-most in the league with defensive tackle Leonard Williams leading the way with five.“Defensive line, this is by far the best defensive line, I think,” Arians said. “The Rams are different in their speed factor with Aaron (Donald) and (Robert) Quinn. But these guys are all big, physical — and a bunch of them. You’ve got Muhammad (Wilkerson) playing linebacker, so that’s a huge front when you have him out there playing outside linebacker.”Follow Craig Grialou on Twitter – / 31 Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact
Comments Share His ability to hurt teams as both a runner and a receiver in 2016 was reminiscent of Marshall Faulk, another former NFC West running back.That’s high praise for Johnson, but his numbers back it up. After growing his national profile in 2016, Johnson’s return to the gridiron in 2017 should be greatly anticipated.In fact, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians thinks 2017 could be a historic year for Johnson.“Sky is the limit. I mean, 200-yard games every week. I’m serious. He’s capable,” Arians said the day after the 2016 season ended.

(AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin) Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact NFC West writers for ESPN unanimously voted Arizona Cardinals’ running back David Johnson as the division’s offensive player of the year.Johnson had a historic season, rushing for 1,239 yards and scoring 16 touchdowns on the ground. What’s more impressive is that Johnson caught 80 passes for 879 yards and four touchdowns. His receiving yardage total was the second best on the Cardinals in 2016.Alden Gonzalez, who covers the Los Angeles Rams, thought that Johnson could have some higher recognition if Arizona was better. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories Johnson rushed for 1,239 yards and added another 879 receiving yards. All told, he led the NFL with 2,118 yards from scrimmage and 20 touchdowns. If the Cardinals were a playoff team, Johnson would probably be getting a lot of mention as a potential MVP candidate.The second-year running back still collected his fair share of accolades, as he was voted into his first Pro Bowl and was selected to be a first team All-Pro.Johnson may not have led the league in rushing, but Josh Weinfuss, who covers the Cardinals, notes that Johnson led the NFL in other categories.He set an NFL record for consecutive 100-yard games from scrimmage to start a season, with 15. On top of all that, Johnson was responsible for 36.1 percent of the Cardinals’ total offense — the highest percentage in the league.Even though he was not the only offensive standout in the division, Sheil Kapadia, who covers the Seattle Seahawks, thinks that Johnson was significantly better.Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin (94 catches, 1,128 yards) and Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald (107 catches, 1,023 yards) both had excellent seasons, but Johnson separated himself from the pack.Nick Wagoner, who covers the San Francisco 49ers, compared Johnson’s dual-threat ability to a Hall of Fame running back.
Worldhotels announces its new partnership with White Swan Hotel in Guangzhou and brings the grand total of affiliate hotels in Greater China to over 30 properties. As the very first hotel in China to join World Luxury, a fine collection of distinct hotels, White Swan Hotel is slated to become one of Worldhotels’ flagship hotels and a prevalent force in both the leisure and business markets.Situated on historic Shamian Island, White Swan Hotel recently underwent a three-year makeover and reopened in Q3 2015. The hotel is dressed throughout in white. White Swan Hotel first opened in 1983 on the premise of its late owner, Hong Kong tycoon, Henry Fok’s dream to own a hotel in China that was designed, built and managed solely by Chinese.The hotel also prides itself on its extensive collection of art and currently boasts over 2000 pieces prominently displayed in the hotel’s premises – including the hotel’s centrepiece, “Homeland Water”, which consists of a Koi pond, a man-made waterfall, stone rockery and a hexagonal shaped pavilion perched at the top of the fountain.Contemporary rooms with views of GuangzhouThe 520 rooms and suites of White Swan Hotel range from 60 to 90 square metres, many boasting views of the Pearl River or the city’s landscape. The rooms are adorned with wood panelling and accents, and are complemented by natural lighting. Deluxe rooms are equipped with an ensuite marble bathroom, overhead rain showers, deep soaking bath tubs and are stocked with designer bathroom amenities.The convergence of palatesJade River is White Swan Hotel’s signature Cantonese restaurant and a mandatory visit for food connoisseurs. Dining at Jade Restaurant is akin to having a meal at an old Chinese courtyard, with an oriental-inspired interior and ambience, and its Koi pond serving as a serene setting. Silk Road Grill serves up Mediterranean and other Western-influenced cuisines. The restaurant offers riverside views and features prime cuts and seafood in its daily menu. The dishes found in the menu of Flavours of China offer guests exactly what the restaurant’s name suggests, and promise the discovery of authentic provincial Chinese flavours and delicacies.A true landmark hotelThe hotel boasts a well-equipped, two-storey Fitness Centre and also a yoga room, which provides a view of the hotel’s lush green gardens and the Pearl River. With Jacuzzis, saunas and steam rooms, guests can be assured that their body’s wellbeing will be taken care of and pampered. A team of therapists is armed with an extensive knowledge in anatomy, aromatherapy and massage techniques.“Guangzhou is an up-and-coming leisure destination in South China and also an important traffic node for business travellers and we believe that White Swan Hotel is perfectly poised to cater to both divergent markets and more,” says Roland Jegge, Executive VP, Worldhotels Asia Pacific. “We are thrilled to be welcoming a property of White Swan Hotel’s calibre into our portfolio, and this latest addition is a tremendous vote of confidence for Worldhotels and the World Luxury collection of iconic hotels.”

Sally Morgan of The Unique Tourism Collection and Annarita Aprea, Director of Sales & Marketing for the idyllic Italian hotel, Casa Angelina, hosted just five members of the media for an intimate dinner at Otto Ristorante on Cowper Wharf at Woolloomooloo.Over wine and the restaurant’s fresh, Italian cuisine, guests learned about this white gem, perched above the Mediterranean Sea in the quiet and picturesque Campania village of Praiano, which is only a 10-minute drive from Positano and 15 minutes from Amalfi.The property – which welcomes many Australians to enjoy all the magnificence and splendour of the Amalfi Coast and its surrounds during the beautiful European spring and summer months – operates seasonally and children from 12 years of age are welcome to visit.As a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, Casa Angelina provides the timeless elegance of style and service.

Go back to the e-newsletterBestselling author and TV host, Luke Nguyen, has been appointed global cuisine ambassador for Vietnam Airlines in a bid to further promote local culture and cuisine to the world.The three-year contract will see Luke develop eight of his own culinary creations that will be introduced on the Business Class menus of all flights departing Australia to Vietnam, as well as input into the current offering of 50 dishes served globally.Creating a dish that tastes good up in the air and appeals to both continents is no mean feat according to Luke Nguyen who is currently looking for new ideas to spice up the airline’s culinary offering.“Menu planning sky-high is very complex. We lose about 15 to 20 per cent of our taste at 50,000 feet and finding a food offering that has authentic Vietnamese flavours to suit different passengers isn’t easy. I look forward to the challenge.“The Vietnam Airlines collaboration is a very exciting partnership for me. I’ve always been impressed with how much pride they take in providing top-quality cuisine, so for my dishes to take off in such a big way is pretty special. I’m already dreaming up my next idea for the airline.”Le Hong Ha, the executive vice president of Vietnam Airlines, said: “As the national carrier, we always aim to introduce our passengers to a truly Vietnamese experience, and we are delighted to work with Luke Nguyen to bring this to life.”Go back to the e-newsletter

Indeed, Jemma Watkins from Bristol got in touch after reading the article, and her feelings seemed to echo those of women around the world.Jemma says:“The main problem, my dear Sam, is the matter of toiletries. There is no way that the bare minimum of lotions and potions I need to make myself fragrant and beautiful can be decanted into miniature bottles and squeezed into a 1 litre Ziploc.Then there’s the issue of tweezers, nail scissors and other sharp grooming instruments. I’ve lost count of the numerous bits of metal that have been confiscated from me over the years. I mean, please, what am I going to do – pull your hairs out one by one until you ground the plane?So for ladies like me, whose choice of plucker is an expensive one (I like Tweezerman – even the finest eyebrow hair can’t get past those bad boys – but they cost around £18), hold luggage is the only way to go.”However, veteran light-traveller Yvette Stanton, co-author of the Enjoying Travel with Kids blog, got in touch and confirmed that packing for multi-week trips with hand luggage only was not only perfectly feasible for the ladies, but the entire family!Here’s Yvette’s advice:Sam has put out the challenge for girls to be able to pack everything you need for a 3 night long weekend into a standard hand luggage only. Can it be done? Of course it can!I regularly travel domestically within Australia for work with only hand luggage, and last European summer my family of four, including me, travelled to Europe from Australia for a three week holiday with carryon luggage only. Therefore it certainly can be done!My bag contents do look a little different depending on whether it is for a business trip or a family holiday. I pack it all into a Kathmandu 40L Jet Pack wheelie travel bag, which converts to a backpack. This fits with most airline’s carry-on requirements. For future holiday trips, I’d like very much to ditch the wheels and just have a backpack – but that’s the future, so we’ll leave it there for the time being!This is what I would take for a holiday trip of 2-3 weeks for temperatures of 15C up to 40C.NB: Items that would be worn or in pockets while flying are not included in the total weight.BAG: Kathmandu 40L Jet Pack wheelie travel bag, which converts to a backpackSubtotal weight: 2940gESSENTIALS: Passport (for international travel)Insurance informationTravel tickets, documentsCredit cardsTravelex Cash Passport (international travel)Subtotal weight: 0g (all carried on person)CLOTHING: (all clothing quick dry and in neutral colours)two pairs zip off pantsone skirt (dressy enough that I can wear it for any business appointments)two polyester t-shirts (suitable also for sleeping in)two short sleeve polyester/nylon/spandex blouseshat1 pair socks3 pairs underpants1 long sleeve thermal top (can double as long sleeve T)1 lightweight polar fleece cardigan/jacket2 brasswimming costumecomfortable sandalsSubtotal weight: 1317gACCESSORIES:water bottleDigital SLR camera, extra lens, extra lithium batteriesearplugseye maskinflatable neck pillowpen, notebooknetbook computer (with scanned relevant guidebook pages, also to be used as a travel diary)travel adaptors (international travel)plastic cup, plate, cutlery, bowl (we often self cater)mini travel towel1L rollup bottlemoney beltuniversal sink plugmini umbrellaelastic washing lineSubtotal weight: 2007gTOILETRIES: 1 x 75ml shampoo bottle2 x 75ml conditioner bottles1 x 100ml sunscreen tubedeodorant sticksafety razormedication (and copy of prescription)small bar of soaptoothbrush, toothpastehair brushhair elasticsSubtotal weight: 630gTOTAL weight: 6.9kgYou’ll note that I do not take a hairdryer or makeup. For business trips (which for me are domestic only) I would take these items, but be able to leave at home several items that are only for holiday and international travel, to counter for the additional weight.My clothes would be different, but again be light weight, wrinkle-free, quick dry. My make-up kit would be mascara, eyeliner, two eyeshadow colours, face powder, and lipstick. I also take a small 20ml bottle of eye-make-up remover, decanted from the original bottle.The rest of the make-up I wash off with soap and water. (Sacrilege!) I don’t use moisturiser either (more sacrilege!), but if I did I’d put enough for the time away in a small travel-sized container – the sort you can get from a pharmacy – and take that.So, you see that it can be done!Yvette Stanton is the co-author of the Enjoying Travel with Kids blog. She and her husband John enjoy travelling with their kids. They espouse the principles of travelling light even with kids, and enjoy sharing their tips for doing so.

Take it slow at Wasserschloss Haus RodenbergSat in quiet Aplerbeck just outside of Dortmund (catch the U-Bahn to Aplerbeck station), the foundations of this picturesque building go back to the 1200s, but it was later transformed into a seventeenth century ‘water-castle’.

A gilded skyline of spires, a medieval Aldstadt and one very famous Christmas market have all made Cologne a popular city break destination in its own right. If you’re coming from Dortmund, it’s just an hour and a half on the train, leaving you plenty of time to explore the gorgeous Gothic Kölner Dom (cathedral), see some top-grade artworks by the likes of Rembrandt and Monet at the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum and cruise along the Rhine with a glass of local Riesling in hand. Read more about beautiful Cologne, in our guide to the best things to see and do. 7. Eat at the Alten MarktIf you’re looking for somewhere old school to go for a pint and a bite to eat, head to Zum Alten Markt in the city’s old market square, also a pleasant spot for al fresco drinking on warmer days. Pay homage to hearty German fare by tucking into pfefferpotthast (spicy beef and onions stuffed in a roll daubed with mustard) and get stuck into a Hövels Original, or three. There’s a good atmosphere when the football’s on and don’t miss the Markt’s moose, which escaped from Dortmund Zoo in a blizzard in 1957, but sadly got hit by a brewery truck. The moose lives on, appropriately watching over beer drinkers in this traditional German hostelry.Opening times: Mon to Thurs 10am – 1am, Fri 10am – 3am, Sat 9am – 3am, Sun 11am –11pm.Location: Markt 3. 4. Be a culture vulture at Konzerthaus DortmundTake in some high-brow entertainment at the magnificent Dortmund Concert Hall. There are regular classical concerts by the likes of the Berlin Philharmoniker, as well as more contemporary music shows. Book your tickets online or at the box office and grab a pre-show drink at the Stravinski restaurant – they also have an affordable lunch deal every day for €7.15 (see the menu for today’s special). 12. Go outdoors at HengsteyseeHengstey Lake is a reservoir on the Ruhr river, between Dortmund, Hagen and Herdecke and makes for a perfect day trip from Dortmund. Flanked by the Ardey Mountains to the north, the woodlands in this area are known for their bird and waterfowl populations, while out on the water itself, you can canoe, sail and pedal(boat) to your heart’s content on a summer day. There are cycle and hiking tracks running for 6.5km around the lake, and serious cyclists can take the trail all the way up to the Emperor Wilhelm monument at Hohensyburg. It’s in the mountains, so you may be out of puff when you reach the top, but the reward is an incredible view of the confluence of the Ruhr and Lenne rivers running into the reservoir. 8. Admire St. Reinold’s ChurchRestored in the 1950s after suffering severe bomb damage during WWII, St. Reinold’s has represented the spiritual heart of Dortmund since the first church was built on this site, way back in the tenth century. You can still admire its medieval Romanesque style, with its long lancet windows and dome-and-spire bell tower, originally built in 1443. There are regular organ recitals on Wednesdays at 6pm and expect a flurry of concerts and events in 2017 to mark the 125th anniversary of the Dortmund Bach Choir. 10. Refresh in the RombergparkDortmund’s Botanischer Garten Rombergpark is a tranquil nineteenth century arboretum and botanical garden, designed with romantic landscaping in mind, complete with carefully placed lakeside lodges to pause for a spot of contemplation. Its greenhouses are chock-full of flora from all over the world, and the bloom of colour and greenery in the spring and summer provide a welcome contrast to the industrial vibe of downtown Dortmund.Opening times: The park is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The plant nurseries are open (April to Sept) Sat, Sun & holidays 10am – 6pm; (Oct to March) Sat, Sun & public holidays 10am – 4pm.Location: Am Rombergpark 49B. Price: (For the plant nurseries) €2.50. 5. Go shopping on KleppingstraßeAs the saying goes, Saturdays are for shopping, and if you’re a sucker for retail city breaks, then you’re in luck. Dortmund is the fourth most popular shopping destination in Germany (after Berlin, Hamburg and Frankfurt) so max out your cards on the Kleppingstraße, the perfect place to pick up an impressively expensive gift for that special someone back home, or yourself. 14. Go carting at DASA – Arbeitswelt AusstellungBrought the kids for a weekend break? Take them to this playful, hands-on museum about how humans and technology interact, and they’ll soon be scrambling into (virtual) heavy-goods trucks and helicopters, chatting to robots and having a go on the ‘DASA-Drom’, a hectic cart ride through a mocked-up warehouse that’s a lot more fun than it sounds.Opening times: Mon to Fri 9am – 5pm, Sat & Sun 10am – 6pm.Location: Friedrich-Henkel-Weg 1-25. Price: Adults €8, Reduced (6-17yrs/students/disabled) €5. 9. Climb the FlorianturmGet an introduction to the city from on high, at Dortmund’s landmark Florian Tower. Standing over 140 metres tall in the Westfalenpark, the viewing platform offers sweeping 360 views over the urban sprawl and surrounding countryside. You won’t even have to make the climb yourself, as the lift will do all the hard work for you, but be prepared for queues in the summer.Opening times: Weds to Fri 2pm – 6pm, Sat, Sun & holidays 12pm – 8pm.Location: Westfalenpark, Florianstraße 2.Price: (Park and tower) €5.50 until 6pm, €4 after. Search for flights to Dortmund1. Visit WestfalenstadionTo most football fans, the name Dortmund means just one thing. Borussia Dortmund, who reached the final of the Champions League in 2013, where they were beaten by Bayern Munich in the first ever all-German final. Step into one of the top attractions in Dortmund, the mighty Westfalenstadion (or Signal Iduna Park, to give it its official name) and you’ll appreciate why it’s known as ‘Bundesliga’s opera house’. This famous stadium boasts a whopping 80,000 capacity; 25,000 of the seats are in the Südtribüne (South Bank) – the largest terrace in Europe. If you’re in Dortmund for a longer break, take the stadium tour, including a visit to the stadium prison.Opening times: Tours between 11am and 6.30pm on non-match days; (see website for times and dates).Location: Strobelallee 50.Price: Adults €12, Concessions €8.

‘It’s such a loss’ – Tom Petty mourned at Grammy Awards by Mark Kennedy, The Associated Press Posted Jan 28, 2018 9:05 pm PDT Last Updated Jan 28, 2018 at 9:40 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – With song and words, Tom Petty was mourned at the Grammys, with artists as diverse as a children’s music writer and one of the most successful contemporary songwriters of all time both calling his music the soundtrack of their lives.During the Grammy telecast, a separate tribute to Petty was made by Chris Stapleton and Emmylou Harris, who performed Petty’s “Wildflowers” with the lyrics “Sail away, kill off the hours/You belong somewhere you feel free.”Petty, who produced classics that include “Free Fallin’,” ”Refugee” and “American Girl,” died in October at 66 from a drug overdose. He was one of several high-profile artists who died over the past year, including Chris Cornell, Gregg Allman, Chester Bennington and Dolores O’Riordan of The Cranberries.Stapleton joined Petty’s tour with his band the Heartbreakers for a few stops on what would be their last tour last year. The last thing Petty told him was if he’d be willing to do it again, which was a thrill to Stapleton.“I’m such a huge fan,” said Stapleton backstage, citing “Wildflowers” as one of his favourite songs and adding that it was hard to go onstage to honour Petty. “There was a tear in my eye.”Stapleton, who won three Grammys on Sunday, said the music industry lost so many people in 2017. “It’s been a rough year.” He hoped his performance with Harris helped somebody find “some relief or peace.”On the red carpet before the show, singer-songwriter Lisa Loeb called Petty’s music “the soundtrack of my life.” She was at his final concert at the Hollywood Bowl. “It was another amazing concert of his,” she said. “It’s such a loss.”Songwriter Diane Warren called the loss of Petty a “shame,” adding “There are so many great artists who didn’t have to go.” Blues guitarist Gary Clark Jr. also was mourning the loss. He said he had the opportunity to open for Petty and “I didn’t realize how much of his music I knew. It was like the soundtrack of my life.”Country superstar Reba McEntire called Petty a great mentor. “What I liked about Tom Petty was that he knew what he wanted and he wasn’t going to take any route left or right. He wanted it this way,” she said. “He’s just a cool dude, really sweet and had a great head on his shoulders.”___Mark Kennedy is at http://twitter.com/KennedyTwits___For full coverage of awards season, visit: https://apnews.com/tag/AwardsSeason

A judge in Toronto has stayed the charges stemming from a fatal Radiohead concert stage collapse in 2012 due to delays. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Nathan Denette TORONTO — The father of the man killed by a collapsed stage at a Radiohead concert in Toronto in 2012 hopes an inquest into his son’s death provides a blueprint to avoid such tragedies in the future.Ken Johnson is fresh off a tour of the Office of the Chief Coroner to get his bearings before the inquest into his son’s death begins on Monday.“I hope the outcome of the inquest will identify any gaps that existed and create new guidance to make sure these things don’t happen,” Johnson told The Canadian Press in a phone interview on Sunday.RELATED: New trial ordered in deadly stage collapse at Radiohead concert in TorontoScott Johnson, Radiohead’s drum technician, died on June 16, 2012, when a massive scaffolding structure crashed down on him just hours before the British band was set to take the stage at Downsview Park in Toronto. Three others were hurt in the collapse.About a year after the collapse, 13 charges were laid against the show’s promoter, Live Nation, contractor Optex Staging and engineer Domenic Cugliari under provincial health and safety laws.The subsequent trial was derailed when the presiding judge declared he had lost jurisdiction over the case given his appointment to a higher court. That decision led to a senior justice declaring a mistrial, and a new hearing was planned. In September 2017, those charges were stayed after a judge ruled the matter took too long to get to trial.The development shifted the focus to a coroner’s inquest, an independent investigation designed to bring public attention on the circumstances of a death, rather than to assign blame. The jury may make recommendations, which are not binding.“The inquest is not about whether the engineer or the contractor or the promoter were wright or wrong, but what they can do to prevent it,” Johnson said. “I’m still a bit worried that they will be defending or trying to explain the situation rather than coming up with methods to eliminate any doubt and come up with solutions.”Johnson, from the village of Doncaster, England, flew to Canada on Saturday. His wife did not want to come, he said, because she doesn’t want anything to do with Canada.“Life is different now, and as my wife says, I’m as good as it gets,” he said.RELATED: Radiohead singer responds to fatal stage collapse in TorontoScott Johnson’s head was crushed, his skull fractured and his brain pressured when the scaffolding fell on him, his father said. And though his son was killed instantly, the pain of the loss “doesn’t go away” for him and his wife.“They say time heals, but it doesn’t appear to be. You can’t deal with things as you would have done (in the past),” he said.The couple have struggled since their son died, said Johnson. They’ve both dealt with depression, with his wife still on medication to treat her mood seven years later. At 67, Johnson still works, ironically, as a scaffolding inspector. The work keeps his mind busy.“It’s when we’re alone and quiet that it hurts,” he said, choking back tears. “We used to holiday in Greece, the beach during the day and the bar at night, but we can’t sit on a beach now. We’ve not been for seven years now. You can’t sit still because your mind comes to Scott.”He said they no longer spend much time at their village’s pub, because they became known as the couple who lost their son, rather than the couple whose son was part of the Radiohead team. And while Johnson still cries whenever he talks about his son, he refuses to stay quiet.“We talked about him all the time when he was here, so we should still talk about him all the time,” he said.“We think we’re OK. We’re not going to jump off a bridge and we’re not yet in the crazy house.”Of course they long to see their son, if only for a moment. A few weeks ago the couple were talking about their boy and Johnson’s wife said she wished she could hold her son’s hand at the end of his life and continue to hold it into the afterlife.“You don’t wish your life away, but to some degree, I understand what she’s saying,” Johnson said.Liam Casey, The Canadian Press ‘It’s when we’re alone and quiet that it hurts:’ stage collapse victim’s dad Related Stories Radiohead singer responds to fatal stage collapse in TorontoUnreasonable delay arguments brought in Radiohead stage collapse caseNew trial ordered in deadly stage collapse at Radiohead concert in Toronto collapse|fatal|inquest|Radiohead|stage|toronto
