It’s Metallica versus Metallica in the city

Local metal shop wins battle over trademark application Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Larry Wright/burnaby now

Naming rights: Metallica Manufacturing owner Bill Lawson, with son Dan, wants to be left in peace to run his business after a legal battle with heavy metal band Metallica over the name of the business. “This is not a gloating issue,” he said. “We just want to be left alone.” Lawson’s lawyer Dean Palmer, who specializes in intellectual property rights, said the firm sometimes gets these “David and Goliath cases.” “The band, they’ve been around a long time, as a heavy metal band I guess from the early ‘80s. They are very clever at merchandising, so I guess you could say assertive if not aggressive with their intellectual property rights,” Palmer said. According to Palmer, copyright is a “big issue” because the Canadian government recently brought in the Copyright Modernization Act, which he said tends to mirror U.S. copyright laws, giving plaintiffs

ed their concerts. “I appreciate the music and what they do, but at the same time do they even know about them actually coming after us or is it their team of lawyers?” Dan asked. “The lawyers we are dealing with are Canadian lawyers, and those lawyers are based in Toronto, and it could be that the band knows very little about what’s going on. Up until this last decision, this was a major decision, to let this tin-pot company win this verdict across the country. Now if that’s the case, surely that news would have gone back to the band.” The NOW tried contacting the band’s legal representatives, but calls were not returned by press time.

a bit more power. “The band has been pretty big on this, and they’ve been threatening this little Metallica Manufacturing workshop for many years, before I came onto the case,” he said. Lawson estimated he’s spent thousands on legal bills during the past 10 years or so. “We just want to be able to carry on and use the name. The whole city knows us,” he said. Lawson, originally from Australia, is handing the shop over to his 24-year-old son Dan, who was young when the name Metallica was chosen. Later in life, Dan started listening to the band and has attend-

When Bill Lawson decided to name his Burnaby metal shop Metallica Manufacturing, he had no idea it would lead to years of legal headaches involving the heavy metal band with the same name. “It was a very innocent choosing of such a name from a 12-year-old kid,” Lawson said, amidst the loud clanging in his Burnaby metal shop. According to Lawson, the company chose the name in the late 1990s, when the bookkeeper’s young niece suggested the name Metallica. The heavy metal band with the same name was already around at that point, but “Metallica” seemed fitting for the Burnaby shop, which does custom metal work. The shop operated under the name for four or five years, Lawson said, but the legal troubles started when they tried to register a domain name online. That’s when the band’s lawyers started lobbying the shop to change its name. “They just didn’t want us to use the name,” Lawson said. After several years of this, Metallica (the metal shop) filed a trademark application for the word Metallica on Aug. 9, 2008, seeking to use the name with the following services: custom metal fabrications, welding and machining. On July 9, 2009, Metallica (the band) started an opposition proceeding in the Canadian Intellectual Property Office, in an attempt to stop the metal shop from registering its Canadian trademark on multiple grounds – mainly that the name would be confused with the band’s trademark. According to Dean Palmer IP Law, the firm representing Lawson, the Canadian Intellectual Property Office reviewed evidence from both sides and concluded that there was no likelihood of confusion between trademarks for the metal shop and the metal band. More than three years later, on Sept. 25, 2012, the office rejected the band’s opposition, leaving Metallica, the local shop, free to continue pursuing its trademark application. It’s a partial victory for Lawson but he’s not boasting, he just wants to work in peace.

SHOOTING

Man shot and killed in conflict Police respond to 911 call about knife-wielding man on Albert Street in city Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

A man was shot early Thursday morning in North Burnaby after RCMP officers responded to a call of a knifewielding man in the area. The man was taken to hospital where he was later pronounced dead, according to a press release from the province’s independent investigations office. The civilian-led office, which conducts criminal investigations into serious police-involved incidents, was established and signed memorandums of understanding with police forces in B.C. last summer. The office was notified of the incident at 1:45 a.m. and sent seven investigators to the scene, the release added. The police were responding to an early morning 911 call about a man with a knife in the 4100-block of Albert Street when they encountered the man, who allegedly matched the description given by the caller, at Hastings Street and McDonald Avenue, after which, the shooting occurred, the release stated. “We’ll be working with the coroner today (Thursday) to determine the identity of this gentleman and once that’s determined, I’d expect the coroner would release that, of course after we’ve had a chance to contact the family and make sure they’re all notified,” said Owen Court, spokesperson for the office. The agency is gathering evidence and interviewing witnesses, he added. “When our people arrive at a scene like that, they’ll obviously meet with the involved police agency, in this case the Burnaby RCMP,” he said. “They’ll review any physical evidence at the scene, they’ll speak to witnesses – whether it’s civilian witnesses or police witnesses or anyone that’s available. They’ll start a normal investigation.” Court said he couldn’t offer an idea of how long the investigation might take at this point. “These are large, complex investigations – someone has died here,” he said. “These are big investigations, and they do take some time.” 6

staff reporter

While the first phase of the Station Square redevelopment just got underway last fall, Burnaby city staff are preparing to work with the two companies behind the project, Anthem Properties and Beedie Living, to develop plans for the next three phases.

Burnaby council gave approval for city staff to work with the developers on a plan for the next stages of the project at Monday night’s council meeting. Demolition at the site of the first phase of the project, 4688 Kingsway, started last fall and the groundbreaking for the tower is slated to take place in the spring, Rob Blackwell, Anthem’s senior vice-president of development, told the NOW in November.

OUR VIEW

“The people who are most likely to multi-task harbour the illusion they are better than average at it, when in fact they are often worse,” said Prof. David Strayer, senior author of the study. “If you have people multi-tasking a lot, you might come to the conclusion that they are good at multi-tasking. In fact, the more likely they are to do it, the more likely they are to be bad at it.” The researchers found people end up juggling activities because they are easily distracted, not because they are

good at it. Ironically, they found the most efficient multi-taskers were the ones least likely to do it: people who can actually focus on one thing at a time. One particularly interesting conclusion of the study, published in the Public Library of Science? People who talk on cellphones while driving tend to be least able to multitask well. But if you’ve driven behind one of them, you already knew that.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Coordination is essential

Dear Editor:

Re: Costs concern mayor, Burnaby NOW, Jan. 25. The mayors, the police chief of Delta and Coun. Nick Volkow raise several good points against a regional police force: that existing regional units are already costly, that the majority of the funds will slide to the larger cities, that there is already an accountability problem and that community-based policing will not be done well by a regional body. They have forgotten one major issue – that a truly unified police force would offer one-stop shopping for someone seeking to corrupt the police. With over a dozen different police forces it is virtually impossible to corrupt them all at the same time.

PRODUCTION MANAGER Doug McMaster PRODUCTION STAFF Ron Beamish, Kevin Behnsen, Lynne Boucher, Nola Bowling, Rona Eastman-Magee, Laura Powell, Tony Sherman GRAPHIC DESIGNERS Helen-Louise Kinton, Gary E. Slavin REGIONAL CLASSIFIED MANAGER Trixi Agrios CLASSIFIED SUPERVISOR Dawn James CLASSIFIED REPS Darla Burns, John Taylor, ACCOUNTING Judy Sharp

With a single administration they would only have to corrupt a single high-level official, and they would have a handle on the whole region. And if they couldn’t get to a high official, they could aim for any number of lower-level employees. With separate offices, one office watches the other. However, as the Missing Women Commission suggests, some issues need regional coordination. A regional office of the RCMP might be the answer. After all, they are Canada’s federal police, and many of the regional issues are really national problems. But Coun. Volkow points out that there is already an accountability problem. This in itself would be reason to reject such a model until the accountability issues are dealt with.

Hire more police for stops

Dear Editor:

Re: Police wrong to OK warnings, Editor’s Letter, Burnaby NOW, Jan. 25. Someone will surely accuse me of wishing to introduce a police state. However, I do not just endorse your position with regards to the police being wrong, I would go a step further: hire more officers to fine more people guilty of traffic infractions! Don’t stop at just seatbelts or the use of cellphones. Fine those who do not stop at stop signs or, my favourite beef, get the ones who do not use directional lights. (There are a lot of other things to be looked at!) None of this should cost taxpayers a dime. Based on what’s going on, each officer could easily generate a thousand dollars in fines each day he puts his uniform on! Ziggy Eckardt, Burnaby

What’s a balanced budget?

Dear Editor:

On Feb. 19, Finance Minister De Jong tables his first provincial budget. He recently announced that it will be a balanced budget and warned there isn’t a lot of room for extravagant spending promises and proposals. It sounds straightforward enough, but look again. He doesn’t actually promise there won’t be any extravagance but only that there isn’t a lot of room for it. In other words, he’s given himself some wiggle room to overspend somewhere in the budget. So it’s not out of the question that a goody or two to entice voters in the upcoming election will be included. Or, perhaps more likely, there will be a bit more corporate welfare to boost the so-called Jobs Plan. Or maybe a little of both. After all, it’s an election year. The thrust of the minister’s announcement is that the budget will be “balanced.”

However, his understanding of that term is not necessarily the same as ours. For those of us responsible for household spending, a budget is a means to ensure our expenditures don’t exceed our income. Moreover, we know the wisdom of allowing for the unexpected, such as income interruption or unforeseen cost items, and accordingly set aside money for these contingencies. In other words, we balance our budget by apportioning our income to see us through life’s rough patches as well as to meet our day-to-day needs. The B.C. Liberal government implies it does much the same, but it doesn’t. Indeed, although described as balanced, for the last half dozen years, each annual budget has ended the year with a deficit; that is, provincial expenditures have exceeded provincial income. The deficit for the current fiscal year 2012/2013, for example, will be about $389 million Deficits are usually the result of overspending during the budget period due to unforeseen circumstances. But B.C.’s budgets in recent years have had an added and more telling element right at the outset: that is, despite evidence to the contrary, successive finance ministers have included in their budgets forecasted resource revenues that never materialized. The result has been that the touted balanced budget offered in February ends up in financial disarray by December. The Liberal government tends to blame this outcome on circumstances beyond its control. But the culprit is actually the misreading or misrepresentation of market trends. For example, the government collects royalties on the sale of natural gas, and the higher the sales volume, the more it is paid. For the last number of years the unit price of gas has been depressed due to a market glut in North America, but the government nevertheless repeatedly based annual provincial revenue calculations on an anticipated recovered and rising price. According to two previous finance ministers, the natural gas price increase projection included in each of their budgets was based on the advice of industry experts. . It either didn’t occur to them to go elsewhere for advice after the first deficit outcome, or they deliberately adopted an inflated calculation in order to “balance” their budgets.

New view: The redevelopment of the Station Square complex includes five residential towers ranging in height from 35 to 57 storeys.

Project: Units sold out continued from page 5

The development on the northeastern portion of the site – where Boston Pizza and Red Robin used to be – is expected to be completed in three years, he said. The site’s master plan is based on urban design principles that were determined after lengthy consultations with the city, stakeholders and community members, according to Blackwell. The project will be a mixed-use development with restaurants, retail, and residential towers linked to the rest of the city via transit and Burnaby’s trail system, he said. Plans for the development include five residential towers ranging in height from 35 to 57 storeys, a redeveloped commercial centre, and green and public spaces throughout the site. Residential units in the first tower sold out quickly last fall. View with

SECTION COORDINATOR Jennifer Moreau, 604-444-3021 jmoreau@burnabynow.com

On the world stage with beauty pageants T

he Burnaby NOW spent time chatting with Trinity Stanley, who at 13 is one of the youngest contestants in the Miss Teen Canada World beauty pageant. Trinity is a Grade 8 student at Burnaby Central, who is hoping to inspire other young girls to develop a healthy self-image.

ON MY BEAT

Jennifer: Please tell us a bit about yourself:

Trinity: Hi, my name is Trinity. I’m 13 years young and currently a Grade 8 student attending Burnaby Central. I love photography, whether I’m behind or in front of the camera, it’s always the main thing I do in my spare time. I am very social, and I love hanging out with my friends. Jennifer Moreau

Jennifer: Why are you entering the Miss Teen Canada World beauty pageant? Trinity: I decided to enter because I feel there is a whole Toddlers and Tiaras perspective of pageants these days, and I honestly believe it’s a leading role that can influence girls all across the country. Jennifer: What made you want to get into modelling? Trinity: After watching shows, and seeing the Victoria’s Secret fashion show, I got interested in the whole fashion industry. I love flipping through magazines and seeing modelling advertisements. I hope to be in that inspiring position one day. Jennifer: Where do you stand in the contest now? Trinity: I am a finalist going on to compete for one of the few B.C. representatives for the nationals. Jennifer: What’s the next step in the contest? Trinity: My next step is to help get people involved for the Cardiac Kids charity and raise money to help donate. I

would like to get support from my community. Jennifer: Can you tell us about the fundraising you are doing for Cardiac Kids? Trinity: Well, I’m fundraising for the Cardiac Kids, which is basically a volunteer group established in 2000 to raise much-needed funds for children who are suffering from congenital heart disease. I’ve baked goods and sold them from door to door, and collected donations from my family and friends. Jennifer: What’s it like being one of the youngest contestants? Trinity: It’s definitely a lot to think about, but it sure is a privilege. I hope that in a way, I won’t feel threatened at any point, because of any older girl’s experience. Jennifer: I understand you are trying to encourage other girls to have a healthy selfimage. How do you do that when the early teens can be a difficult time for some? Trinity: I can understand that many girls do worry about their image and other people’s opinions, but I feel at this age girl’s shouldn’t invest so much of their time worrying about their breakouts, or messy hair days. At this age we are changing and still growing. Making the right food choices and getting exercise makes them feel good inside and out. If all girls could do this and feel confident in themselves, it would make them feel good about themselves and be happier in general. Jennifer: What do you think is the biggest issue facing young teen girls today? Trinity: I think the top issues that teenage girls face are mainly their position in social grouping and appearance acceptance. Girls worry about how people think of them and accept them. I know for a fact that when girls go to school or a social outing they feel the need to please everyone around them, whether it’s acting more mature or dressing up differently. I hope that we could break that barrier sooner than later. jmoreau@ burnabynow.com

Upcoming fair at Cameron focuses on child health Parents can access information on nutrition and more Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

The upcoming Healthy Kids Preschoolers Fair at Cameron Recreation Complex is a chance to get answers on questions regarding children’s health on Tuesday, Feb. 5. The annual fair, now in

its 10th year, features public health nurses, non-profit groups and preschool representatives and is geared towards parents of children five and younger. “We basically turn the whole of Cameron centre into a preschool fair. It’s quite big,” said Sue McIntyre, program coordinator at Cameron Recreation Complex. “We want an opportunity for parents to make connections for the healthy development of

their children.” Parents can get information on dental health, child development, nutrition, vision, hearing and immunizations. There will be a breastfeeding consultant on site and nurses to answer health questions. The fair is a joint effort, organized by local community schools, the Ministry of Children and Family Development,FraserHealth, the Burnaby Optimist Club and the city’s parks, recre-

ation and cultural services department, while Cameron Recreation Complex is hosting. The fair is on Tuesday, Feb. 5, from 9:30 a.m. to noon, and the centre is at 9523 Cameron Street. Admission is free, and there are fun things for the children to do while parents gather information. There will be gymnastics, facepainting, a station with musical instruments, and a preschool demonstration

room, so people can talk to a preschool teacher and get a sense of what preschool looks like. There will also be free snacks and coffee. McIntyresaidthefairusually draws about 300 people, but because the venue is large, it’s not that crowded. Parents can drop by anytime between 9:30 a.m. and noon, but they should plan to spend an hour at the fair because there’s so much to do, McIntyre advised. “It’s a fun thing, but

there’s really serious benefits that can be gained from attending,” she said. If you can’t make the Feb. 5 event, there are two more similar fairs in Burnaby. The Bonsor Healthy Kids Preschool Fair is on Thursday, April 18, from 9:30 a.m. to noon, at 6550 Bonsor Ave. There will be another fair at the new Edmonds Community Centre in October, but no date has been scheduled yet.

Meet the face behind your local White Spot For generations, families and friends have gathered together at a White Spot restaurant to share a meal, a laugh or to celebrate a special occasion. White Spot is as West coast as our mountains and ocean. Today, White Spot continues to attract old and young because of chefs such as Danny Markowicz, Executive Development Chef, who are passionate about what they do. Here Markowicz opens up about White Spot and himself.

Q) Where did you learn to cook? I attended S.A.I.T in Calgary and took the professional cooking program. I did my apprenticeship Left to right: James Kennedy CCC, at the Banff Springs Hotel, and Corporate Training Chef. Danny have been cooking ever since. As Markowicz, Executive Development Chef. a child, my dad would take my Chuck Currie, Executive Chef. brother and me grocery shopping Friday after school, and we would cook dinner. Unknowingly, those were my first “black boxes.” Q) Why did you want to become a chef? At a very young age, I was led into the kitchen of my grandfather’s restaurant in Montreal. If I close my eyes and think about it, I can still remember the aroma. I was hooked. Q) How do you describe your cooking style? My style is globally inspired, using classic French techniques from my training. I often find myself on a certain kick, but whether its comfort food, Italian or Moroccan, or maybe Korean, Spanish or Chinese, it’s always the basics that speak first. Q) What is the menu development process that you take to bring new menu items to life? Once we decide on a platform for a promotion, we “blue sky” potential menu items. From that huge list, it gets paired down to a workable few dozen items. We try to work a year out, so that we’re working on a promotion within the same season it will launch. From that list, we internally taste all menu items, review plating, and build recipes accordingly. Once items are approved for test, we then train our test stores on the new items, and run the items for a few weeks. We gather feedback, and make decisions on how to move forward. Eight months later, those items could be at a White Spot near you… Q) What is your favourite restaurant to dine at? That’s a really tough question… The list is long….. But if I had to choose … In Vancouver, Kintaro is still one of my favorites. All I ever have is the BBQ Pork Ramen, but it’s always incredibly satisfying, and there’s something special about huge pots of simmering broth steaming up the windows.

One of the most surprising luxury cars I’ve driven this year is the 2013 Lincoln MKS. Even though the car still looks somewhat American, it drives surprisingly like a European luxury sedan, even when compared to some of the more established vehicles like Lexus ES or Acura TL sedans. A massive improvement on the current MKS, the 2013 edition has more power, it’s more fuel efficient, and it has some great new active safety features. Topping the list of improvements is a superb new active suspension damping system that gives Lincoln’s flagship model a delightful new personality. Called Continuously Controlled Damping (CCD), it monitors suspension settings up to 500 times per second and can make adjustments to the suspension at a rate of 20 times per second. For

occupants this translates to a silky smooth, very comfortable ride or a firmer setup with more controlled handling, at the driver’s choosing. The CCD system is also linked to a more encompassing system called Lincoln Drive Control that allows a driver to change the on-road personality of the MKS by simply moving the shift lever from D (drive) to S (sport). Handling performance, ride firmness, throttle response, shift feel, steering response and traction control/electronic stability control are all instantly retuned to higher performance parameters. The standard engine in MKS is a normally aspirated 3.7 litre V6, which can produce 305 horsepower (vs. 274 horsepower for 2012 MKS). A new Active Grille Shutter system opens and closes depending on engine cooling needs. Closed shutters can reduce aerodynamic drag by up to six per cent,

which improves highway fuel economy. My test MKS came with the EcoBoost 3.5litre, which is a twin-turbo V6 that can produce 365 horsepower. This engine is also paired with all-wheeldrive, yet fuel economy is almost the same as the 3.7 litre. In dry driving conditions the AWD system routes power to the front wheels for best fuel economy. Other changes compared to 2012 include larger brake components to increase braking power and fade resistance, improving quietness with extra sound absorption in the front wheel wells, around the shock towers, under the hood and in the trunk. Re-designed exterior rear-view mirrors reduce wind noise. If you consider parallel parking a difficult or mystical skill, the MKS also has a technology answer, called Active Park Assist (APA).

On the road:

The Lincoln MKS has the look of a domestic but drives like an import from Europe.

No right and wrong in 2013 draft Tom Berridge

sports editor

One thing that is certain in Monday’s Western Lacrosse Association junior draft is there is no real first choice for whose name should be called with Maple Ridge’s first overall pick. While Burnaby is leaning towards Logan Schuss as the consensus No. 1, New Westminster selectors place Coquitlam’s bevy of fine righthanders – Robert Church, Matthew Dinsdale and Ben McIntosh – in no particular order as possible contenders for that much sought after distinction. Indeed, a Coquitlam insider predicted McIntosh to be the first player to be picked by Maple Ridge, with Brandon Goodwin second and Church, Schuss and Dinsdale following. Jeff Cornwall would then be taken sixth overall by Burnaby with its second pick of the first round. But predicting a WLA draft is an inexact science, as many know.

How New Westminster chooses at nos. 2 and 3 may have a big impact on how the rest of the draft pans out. With arguably the most to gain in the deep 2013 grad year, the Salmonbellies will be looking for players who can step right in and put the Queen’s Park ship back on a course towards the playoffs. With two more picks in Round 2, New West, along with Maple Ridge and Coquitlam, might not have to take a hasty first-round risk. Others might not be so fortunate. New Westminster president and general manager, Dan Richardson, told the NOW his club wants as many full-time players as possible on this season’s summer roster. “But we want the best,” Richardson said, suggesting should a top player with field lacrosse commitments fall to the Salmonbellies, “We would have to take a look at our existing roster.” With a common need for lefthanders, New West is better positioned than Burnaby to take advantage of

arguably the top three southpaws in this year’s draw – Schuss, Goodwin and Cornwall. Richardson believes this year’s draft is a solid 14 players deep and said he would be surprised to see teams going off the board as has been the case in previous drafts. “The draft doesn’t end for us after the first round; it gets going,” said Richardson, who chooses again at nos. 10 and 11. He also said Salmonbellie greats are not always picked first, but made later, citing late picks Shane Bennett and Wade DeWolff as current examples. ForBurnaby,GMPaulRowbotham is not ruling out a worst-case scenerio, where the Lakers are forced to pick up the best players available and then hope to address its leftside needs in the much less desirable trade market. But Rowbotham doesn’t any pre-draft trades coming into play this year. “We’ll likely play it safe in the first round,” said Rowbotham. “I don’t have a choice.”

Experience a key to Burnaby drafts “We’re trying to get back to a national prize. What better way than to get players with a taste for national competition,” Burnaby drafted size and experience said Passmore. “We want to augment our local players with players who have at last week’s midget lacrosse draft.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Your popularity rides a sweet wave; social delights, entertainment, flirtation and light romance fill your days – especially Friday/ Saturday. This is a great time to join a group. Still, your personal clout is beginning to wane slightly, so avoid being forceful, especially in practical or ‘dominance’ contests. Sunday’s for secrets, intimacy, financial ponderings. Someone’s attracted to you Monday/ Tuesday; far travel, school, law and cultfure go well also – after Monday morn. Be ambitious Wednesday: you’ll succeed if you down-tone rebelliousness, opt for communication, affection. Taurus April 20-May 20: Be ambitious, Taurus, especially Friday/Saturday. (This can affect any area – for instance, if you’re buying a condo, buy ‘up.’) Community status, career, relations with bosses, parents and VIPs, are part of the picture. Higher-ups favour you all February – propose plans, projects. Someone wants to be ‘friends,’ but he/she could lead you to compromising situations – he/she’s nervous, assertive. Be diplomatic Sunday. Large finances, sexual intimacy lure you, and succeed Monday noon (not earlier) into Tuesday. Gentle love, learning, law or travel arise Wednesday/Thursday. Gemini May 21-June 20: A gentle, understanding mood continues. Seize this time, this atmosphere: seek love, attend cultural venues, travel afar, attend/apply to a school, seek publishing/media opportunities – especially Friday/Saturday. Tackle routine or non-challenging chores Sunday. Relationships fill Monday/Tuesday – after Monday morning, these links hold opportunities and success. Tell your mate, ‘I want to do this, because it will benefit you.’ Midweek brings sexual urges, financial astuteness, and revealing detective work. Friendships challenge, but wisdom and love bring you luck – and travel?

Cancer June 21-July 22: Secrets and ‘levers of power rise quietly around you, like hillocks on a prairie. This week and next, push steadily forward toward an investment, financial, lifestyle, health or intimacy goal – especially Friday/Saturday, when a new link or opportunity could occur. (But reject any idea or opening that occurs between 10 p.m. PST Friday and 6:30 a.m. Saturday.) Sunday’s for romance, pleasure – but stick with the known. Tackle chores Monday/ Tuesday. Relationships, negotiations, a meeting with someone who makes something deep stir within you, new horizons arrive Wednesday/Thursday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Relationships come front and center over the next two weeks, Leo – especially this Friday/Saturday. ‘Relationships’ includes emotional and practical or business links, new opportunities, fresh horizons (and possible relocation) – co-operation and opposition. Be diplomatic, but eager to join. Approach others, praise others, seek common ground. Sunday’s for domestic rest – nap, love family, turn on that old music. Romance calls Monday/Tuesday – singles could meet a future mate prospect. Couples find pleasure. To work, and guard health, midweek. Smile at the world Friday/Saturday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Only two weeks left of work and health concerns, Virgo. Might as well plunge into those chores, especially Friday/ Saturday, when a rather significant new task, even new employment, could begin. (Forget resumes: be direct.) Sunday’s restless, not much use. Home chores run into confusion Monday morning (spouse has doubts?) but this p.m. to midday Tuesday offers big steps forward on the home front if you make the effort. Repair, decorate, landscape, prepare kids’ future(s). Romantic and creative urges fill midweek – an incident or alluring person offers a new view of mating.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Games, sports, pleasure, romance, beauty, creativity and self-expression call you – answering will bring luck, especially this Friday/ Saturday. This month could start or further one of the most significant romances of your life. (If you’re married, joy comes from spouse, kids, and adventures – take a family trip.) There is serious love and easy love. Your best ‘mate prospect’ has a load of work lowered onto his/her shoulders: be understanding. Unattached Librans might fall for a co-worker. Spend frugally Sunday. Friends, calls, trips Monday/Tuesday. Home, family Wednesday/Thursday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The main accent this week and next lies on homes, family, security, property, gardening, nutrition, stomach and soul. (Funny how these last two are linked in many religions and mantic arts.) Friday/Saturday might start a new project or trend in these zones. Get plenty of rest (power naps) and show your family your loving heart. (Unlike January, February spreads a balm of affection through your domicile.) Your energy’s high Sunday: tackle minor problems. Chase money, buy/sell, Monday/Tuesday. Midweek brings errands, friends, paperwork, a nd a potentially great investment (a home?). Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The two weeks ahead are not important, but they sure are active. You’ll call, write, answer, visit, perform errands, paperwork, and perhaps travel. A new venture could start in any of these Friday/Saturday. Earlier, Sunday’s for rest, quiet activities. Your energy and pizzazz soar Monday/Tuesday – start projects, relationships after Monday morning (a confusing time). Make money or shop Wednesday. This day might end one link, begin another; or, after disagreement, bring a stronger love. A new person might develop into loving friendship ‘with benefits’ – even into marriage.

February 3 - 9, 2013 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Chase money for the next two weeks, Cap, especially this Friday/Saturday, when a new money-making project could start. (DON’T start it between 10 p.m. Friday and 6:30 a.m. Saturday – PST.) Your income luck remains good all month; you’ll have enough to purchase a luxury item. You grow more assertive in communications – that’s good, but don’t overdo it. Sunday’s hopeful, friendly. Retreat, rest, contemplate and plan Monday/Tuesday – approach government or other agencies.Your energy and charm return, buoyantly, Wednesday/Thursday – home frustrates, but work/money please! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Your energy, charm and effectiveness reach a yearly high this week and next, Aquarius, especially this Friday/Saturday. If you haven’t yet begun a significant project, do so now. Sunday’s for career and prestige, but nothing’s solid here. Your hopes and popularity rise Monday/ Tuesday – a wish could come true. Get out, plan entertainment, join a group – they’ll ‘love’ you. Retreat to catch a second breath Wednesday/Thursday: rest, contemplate and plan. (The best plans might be based on what occurred earlier this week.) Friday/Saturday, chase what/who you want: desire’s lucky. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Continue to lie low, rest, recuperate, contemplate and plan. Your clout in the world is at a low ebb for the two weeks ahead; but your skill and effect in ‘background’ areas is admirable. Background = spirit, charity, government, warehousing, administration, institutions, meditation, yoga, etc. Jump into these, especially Friday/Saturday, when a ‘new note’ (though a slender one) might fill this arena. Sunday’s idealistic, intellectual, mellow. Be ambitious Monday/Tuesday. Happiness, hopes for the future, perhaps a light romantic notion, arise Wednesday (watch money) and Thursday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
