Drivers don’t expect to get a traffic ticket from someone far too young to get behind the wheel of a car. But on Tuesday, students at three Langley elementary schools gave out hand-written warning tickets to drivers, urging them to be careful in school zones. The “Think Of Me” campaign, created by Langley RCMP’s community officers along with ICBC, saw uniformed Mounties pulling over drivers who were going too fast, using cellphones, or not wearing seatbelts near James Kennedy, Willoughby, and Belmont Elementary schools. Const. Wally Lee, a community liaison officer, was doing much of the traffic stopping. After nine years with the RCMP’s traffic services, he has an eye for when people are exceeding the 30 km school zone speed. At James Kennedy, Lee or another officer would wave over a car, and speak briefly to the driver. If they were in a fairly cooperative mood, the officers would then call over a student to give the driver one of their tickets. The tickets are warnings only, but their hand-written messages

remind drivers to be extra careful in school zones. Emma Rolfson, a Grade 5 student at James Kennedy, said she was having fun after handing over a ticket to one driver. “And they said thank you,” Rolfson said. Isabelle Sehdev, also in Grade 5, said it was a fun thing to do. “Because people shouldn’t really speed, because people could get hurt,” Sehdev said. Lee said it’s good to remind drivers that students could come out of a school at any time, particularly during the hours of school zone speeds, but not just at the start and end of classes. Students head out for lunch and recess, they go out for field trips, or for gym class, yet Lee said in his experience drivers speed up a bit if they don’t see any students outside. This is the first time that Langley RCMP have officially done a “Think Of Me” campaign, although it may have happened unofficially in the past once, and it has been tried in other Lower Mainland communities, said Const. Craig van Herk. Langley MLA and transportation minister Mary Polak stopped to check out the initiative Tuesday afternoon at James Kennedy. “What more powerful way to get out the message,” Polak said. The key thing for adults to remember is that children don’t make the same decisions as adults, and drivers have to make more time to react, she said.

Langley Township

Gadfly banned from talking to council The Athenry Gate project in Willoughby has led to bans against talking to the Township’s mayor and council. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

A Langley City man has been partially banned from attending Township council meetings, speaking to staff, or talking to the mayor and councillors. Jacob de Raadt is a familiar face to anyone who has attended a Township council meeting over the past few years. An engineer, he frequently comments on a

wide variety of issues in virtually every neighbourhood in Langley. It was his correspondence about the Athenry Development in Willoughby that resulted in a legal opinion and council vote. De Raadt is now banned from setting foot in the Township Civic Facility on 65th Avenue, unless he receives written permission from the mayor and council, and he is banned from contacting the council or staff, except through the Township’s law firm, Bull Housser. When contacted by the Langley Advance, de Raadt had no comment. Bull Housser has been instructed to send de Raadt a letter telling him to “cease publishing or delivering any defamatory or racist com-

munications in respect of the Township, current or past staff or elected officials.” Samples of his communications in the lawyers’ report include accusing civic staff of misleading council, corruption, and references to Nazi Germany. The Township will also send a letter of complaint to the Association of Professional Engineers about de Raadt’s conduct. De Raadt frequently mentions his engineering background in his presentations to the council. His rapid-fire speeches and Power Point presentations typically cover issues such as parking, traffic, density, and community planning.

The National Lacrosse League will be back at the LEC this Saturday, Dec. 8, as Colorado takes on Calgary. Tickets at Ticketmaster.ca

Bus whisks riders across river Bus customers are trying on the Rapid Bus for size in its first week of operation. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

How fast and convenient is the new Rapid Bus service from Langley’s Carvolth Exchange Park and Ride to the Braid Street SkyTrain station? The Langley Advance took a trip on the bus this week and talked to a few riders to test out the newest public transit feature to connect Langley to the rest of the Lower Mainland. The Rapid Bus leaves at 10minute intervals during morning and evening rush hours, from 5-9 a.m. and 3-7 p.m. The rest of the day it runs every 30 minutes. At 7:59 a.m. Tuesday the bus left Langley with a cargo of six passengers, and headed out through the new special on-ramp that leads directly onto the HOV lanes near 202nd Street. Having avoided the interchange at 200th Street, it headed west at full speed, along with Matthew Claxton/Langley Advance three other lanes of traffic, all of Shirley Rowe waited to board the Rapid Bus in its first week of service between Langley and New Westminster’s Braid Street SkyTrain them moving as fast or faster. station.

The source of the rancor among the neighbours is the anger over the controversial Athenry project. The project mixes condos, commercial space, and an Irish cultural centre. Originally spearheaded by Langley resident Tony McCamley, it has been sold to Lower Mainland firm Peak Construction. Foundations are being built now. The project was approved in early 2011, after a redesign by developers and several public meetings. Residents said the project would overshadow their existing homes to the north, destroying their property values. Some of the residents then launched a lawsuit against council’s decision, but the Yorkson Community Association allowed its suit to be dismissed in October of 2011. In June, Township councillor Charlie Fox publicly mused about having a member of the public banned from council meetings for disruptive behaviour, but the matter was not debated.

Dozens of emails sent by group De Raadt has been applauded by those who are also opposed to the developments about which he has raised issues. Although a City resident, he attends church in Willoughby and has spoken about a number of developments in the area of 208th Street and 80th Avenue. He has also spoken about issues in Walnut Grove, Fort Langley, and other neighbourhoods. A group referred to as “neighbours” of the Athenry project have been sent a similar, if considerably less strict, communication. According to a report by Bull Housser, neighbours of the Athenry project, which is located at 208th Street and 83rd Avenue, have sent more than 60 emails and made “countless” communications to both staff and elected officials. The neighbours are not banned from Township hall grounds, but all communications from them must go through the law firm.

Langley Township council has voted to phase in salary changes over the next four years, as recommended by a task force. Council voted yes to the changes on Monday, essentially compromising on whether to make the switch immediately or to bring them in after the next election. Mayor Jack Froese’s salary will increase from $105,456 to $110,454 per year in 2016, a 4.66 per cent salary hike. Councillors will get 40 per cent of the mayor’s salary, which means an increase from the current $42,525 per year to $44,182 a year by 2016, a 2.88 per cent increase. While the mayor’s is considered a fulltime job, acting as a councillor is considered a part-time job, according to the task force’s report. The other major change is the addition of a vehicle allowance, of $850 per month for the mayor and $340 per month for councillors. The money is for use on travel within the Langleys, and is separate from the existing mileage that mayor and council can collect for their travel outside of

Langley to meetings of Metro Vancouver, TransLink, or other agencies. Froese has indicated that he will not be collecting the travel allowance. The task force was appointed earlier this year to independently look at how council calculates its salaries. Between 2000 and 2011, council pay was calculated based on a basket of other, nearby council salaries. What was unknown until 2011 was that some of those communities had adopted the same systems, and at least one, Chilliwack, was using the Township as part of its calculations. This could have led to a situation in which every time the Township council got a raise, so would Chilliwack, leading back to another raise for the Township, and so on endlessly. The Langley Advance uncovered the problem in December last year. The new system uses a basket of salaries of public sector politicians and managers, including MPs, B.C. MLAs, judges, RCMP superintendents, and high school principals. After removing the top and bottom salaries from the package, the remaining salaries are averaged, and the mayor receives 80 per cent of the calculated number. Due to the phasing in, Froese’s salary will move from 77 per cent to 80 per cent of the target number starting next year. Council salaries are pegged to 40 per cent of the mayor’s wages.

A suspected thief paid two homeless men to help move someone else’s property. by Matthew Claxton

Heather Colpitts/Langley Advance

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Three suspected thieves are facing charges after a single day of break-ins in Langley’s Willoughby neighbourhood. Nov. 25 was a good day for Langley’s general duty RCMP officers, said spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks. A residential alarm in the 20400 block of 82nd Avenue netted an unusual attempted heist. Police were alerted at about 11:20 a.m. and arrived to find two men and a woman loading an entire wood stove from a house into the trunk of a car. The house had been entered through a front window. The 49-year-old Surrey woman was arrested on the spot and will appear in court in January, Marks said. The two men helping her were homeless and had been paid to help move the wood stove. Neither will be charged, Marks said, as they had been told that the woman had permission to move the stove out of the house. An incident earlier in the same day netted two suspects. Just after 9 a.m., a homeowner in the 8400 block of 196th Street came back to find an unfamiliar red pickup truck parked in the driveway. She blocked the driveway with her car and call the police. Officers arrived and spotted two men running from the property. After a foot chase through a treed area, the men were caught, out of breath and covered in mud and leaves, Marks said. A police tracking dog then established a trail between the men at the arrest site, and the house, linking them to the break in. Both men, 42 and 46, are from Surrey. They are scheduled to appear in court in February.

The Grade 4 class of James Gillion and the Grade 5 class of Chris Epting sported very unique mustaches on Nov. 30, some even getting into a Christmas theme with their fake facial foliage.

Others opted for fun fur, pipe cleaners or a mustache coloured on a finger with a felt pen. Gillion had done a Movember initative in a previous school he taught in and suggested it when to went to work at the Willoughby area school. In addition to creating school spirit, the effort also helped students learn about men’s health. “This is our first year at R.C. Garnett,” Gillion said. He said many of the students are familiar with Movember through family members taking part.

People who buy something from participating Brookswood merchants and who provide a donation to the food bank can enter the draw. The donations can be non-perishable food or cash. Felicity Holmes of Feminine Form said participating stores have entry boxes and staff to explain the contest to customers. About 30 merchants are participating in the festive campaign. Any cash donation for the food bank is the equivalent of $3 in buying power for the charity, she noted. The contest runs until Dec. 15 when a window winner is chosen.

New markers for council pay We agree that, by taking the question of council pay out of the realm of “what does the mayor down the road make,” Langley Township council has moved forward. Instead, the recent independent task force has advised looking at other politicians and public service managers: MPs, MLAs, senior RCMP officers, school principals, and so on. We have some suggestions for a few other examples that could have been tossed in. What about Riccardo Sestito, president of the Langley Good Times Cruise-In? What about the presidents of service clubs, like Rotary or Lions, from around the Langleys? After all, they all manage large amounts of money and hefty groups of volunteers. Their salaries are zero, zip, nil. Like councillors, their efforts are parttime jobs that can seem all consuming at times. Like council, it’s a public service. We like the comparison to principals and senior RCMP officers for pay purposes, but those folks have worked their way up the ranks for years. Councillors and mayors can jump into the job. Why not base their pay on the starting salaries of RCMP, or firefighters, or nurses, or teachers? That would put pay in the range of $60,000, still not bad. Then again, all those jobs require years of schooling or specialized training. All that’s required to be a mayor or councillor, aside from votes, is literacy and numeracy. A worker getting the B.C. minimum wage of $10.25 an hour, working full time for 52 weeks a year, would receive $21,320. Is this a fitting salary for a job that requires no specialized skills at all? We have a simple question: do people who are powerful deserve to be paid more? When it comes to paying politicians, two ideas have been thrown around in recent years: first, that you have to pay more to get quality people to run; second, that everyone running does it only because they want to serve, and never for the money. We’d really like to know which one of those is true. – M.C.

Township council

Council pay hike disgusting

Dear Editor, I am disgusted. As a small businessman with three school-age children, I see no wage increases for me and my family. It is impossible to vote myself a raise. I compete with others in my field of work and find contracts only when I am the best bidder. Not so with Township council. It matters not to me what committee gets together to determine the wages of elected officials. The conclusion they consistently reach is always salary increases – presum-

ably to reach a figure that is “fair.” The question then must be asked: what is fair for me, the taxpayer, one of the people who pay for this? I love the name of the committee: the “Council Remuneration Task Force.” Would you mind if this team came over to my house and sized us up? I am certain that they would conclude that my taxes are too high, my business fees are outrageous, and that I should not pay another dime to the council. Carl and Penny Rowan, Langley

Make your holiday WISHES COME TRUE

Fort Langley

Mayor needs to listen to people

Dear Editor, Having signed the petition against the Coulter Berry Building in Fort Langley, it was with great interest that I read of the comment by Mayor Jack Froese that he

does not “govern by petition.” How interesting, as that is exactly how he governed when his council voted in favour of burying power lines in Fort Langley

Township council

Agricultural benefit dubious

Dear Editor, While I consider Trinity Western University a welcome part of our community, it is in fact a private institution and business – not in any way a public facility. I am astounded that Langley Township would make such a magnitude of commitment to this private enterprise/institution in the first place, and to press ahead in light of previous regional commitments, as well as basic planning common sense, is without clear explanation or defense. I am therefore very opposed to the current plan for the “University District” as proposed in the rural plan amendment for a university district. I would also like to add my voice to those opposed to the Wall property being excluded from previous regional planning commitments. I am also very opposed to allowing the removal of that property from the ALR on any basis, including what I consider to be a dubious commitment to “down stream” benefit to agriculture. Frank Cox, Fort Langley

Township council

Better leadership deserved

Dear Editor, I am writing to express my firm opposition to the manner in which Langley Township is conducting itself in the matter of the Wall property and the Trinity Western University expansion. I urge the Township to heed the direction of the Metro Vancouver Board and the Agricultural Land Commission, and to respect the previous Regional Growth Strategy. To approve the Wall development in any form other than that which has been approved by the ALC is irresponsible and puts us all at risk. The only ones who will gain will be the Wall family and other immediate land owners. TWU and the taxpayers of Langley deserve better leadership than this. Barbara Ydenberg, Glen Valley

because of a “petition” by 51 per cent the building owners. His arrogance is astonishing. How else are residents and taxpayers going to make their wishes known, if not by “petition” and submissions to council? But then, perhaps Mayor Froese thinks that he has all the answers and the electorate is simply unenlightened. And isn’t it nice that Mayor Froese, as a business owner, thinks that this building “will bring some much needed vibrancy to the town in the off-season.” But Mr. Froese’s business is nowhere near Fort Langley, so I am not sure how he would know that. Obviously, the many hundreds of residents (and business owners), not to mention the 69 submitters to council, don’t agree with the mayor. And one last question: why even bother having bylaws governing the size, placement, and use of buildings when it seems so easy to circumvent those laws? As Jennifer Veerman commented, “Something needs to change. Come election time, do your research. And then vote.” [Forewest repeat from two years ago, Nov. 29 Letters, Langley Advance] But I would add one more option. The turkey on our table this Christmas certainly won’t be coming from the mayor’s establishment. I plan to vote early with my wallet. Oliver McNeill, Langley

Painful Truth

Natural persons just evading taxes Dear Editor, I want to thank the Langley Advance and Matthew Claxton for the opinion column, “The cult of natural persons” [Nov. 29]. I hope it bangs some sense in the heads of people who think they are special and above the law, just because they like to call themselves “natural persons.” I, too, came across this idea a few years ago. I admit that there was appeal within the idea that the government laws are fabrications and we could be more natural. I like to think of myself as natural. However, it does not take much common

sense to see that the argument for “natural person” status is far from natural. It is a convoluted fabrication and shifty justification to avoid paying taxes. How natural is it that the rest of us should pay more taxes to compensate for those wishing to hide from the taxman? Whether you call it natural or not, I am relieved to hear that tax evasion is met with appropriate consequences.

Home sales down as market cools in Fraser Valley Housing sales continued their slide in Langley and the Fraser Valley. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Home buyers in the Fraser Valley are giving up on expensive homes, as sales continued to slump through the fall, say local realtors. The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board (FVREB) said sales overall dropped by 19.2 per cent in November 2012 compared to the same month last year. Sales conducted through the Multiple Listing Service have been dropping for several months. “Buyers can’t borrow as much as what they could prior to the mortgage rule changes, so we’re seeing our pool of prospective buyers shrink and we’re seeing a change in the price range they’re looking for,” Scott Olson, president of the FVREB, said in a statement. The new mortgage rules made it much more difficult to qualify for a government-insured loan

for anything other than a 25-year term. Shorter mortgage terms have meant a drop in what many first time home buyers can afford. Olson said that is cutting into the sales of homes in the above average range. “For three months in a row, we’ve seen a decrease in sales of detached homes $700,000 and up and greater demand for those $400,000 to half a million,” Olson said. The total number of home sales in the region from Delta to Abbotsford-Mission was 905 last month, down from 1,120 in the same month last year. The number of new listings posted to the MLS dropped 11 per cent compared to last year, and was down 32 per cent compared to October. Olson said it means this was the slowest month for new listings since November 2003. The number of active listings in November was 9,478. According to the FVREB, the price of “benchmark” houses, townhouses and condos is staying relatively stable. A benchmark home is considered an average example of its type.

Heather Colpitts/Langley Advance

Home sales are down as the year winds towards winter. However, average and median prices have been dropping, in some cases sharply. The price of a benchmark detached home in Langley dropped 0.2 per cent month-tomonth in November, and the average and median prices both went up slightly. However, while benchmark prices for townhouses and condos dropped slightly, at two per cent and 0.7 per cent respective-

ly, average prices dropped 12.5 and 11 per cent. Median and average prices also dropped more year-overyear than did benchmark prices. The benchmark price for a townhouse is down just 0.1 per cent from a year ago; the average price has dropped 3.8 per cent and the median price is down 10.4 per cent. For condos, the benchmark price is down 2.3 per cent from

a year ago, while average price is down 6.8 per cent and median price is down 8.5 per cent. Median and average prices can fluctuate more than the “benchmark” rate because they can be swayed by very expensive or very inexpensive homes changing hands. The sale of a few multi-million dollar homes can drive up the average sharply, for example. Sellers are either keeping their homes on the market longer, or if they do not have to sell, taking them out of the game entirely, Olson said. The number of days to sell a home is up to 59 in November, five days up from the same month last year. Townhouses take 70 days to sell, from 52 days, and for condos it was 74 compared to 72. Similar sales patterns are being seen in the area north of the Fraser, where sales are down even more than in the FVREB’s territory. Both the Greater Vancouver area and Toronto, which saw some of the hottest real estate markets in Canada, are now cooling off in response to the new mortgage rules.

Companies show their giving spirit this holiday season What’s in

Store

Roxanne Hooper

rhooper@langleyadvance.com

Last week, I talked a little about seniors, and applauding a contest by the Nurse Next Door and their idea of helping an elderly person return home for the holidays, complete with all the medical care that might be necessary. This week, I want to tell you another outreach initiative involving the Shoppers Home Health Care centre in Langley. They are part of a program, called Be a Santa to a Senior, where working with local community organizations, they help ensure that isolated seniors will be thought of and receive gifts this holiday season. Through to midDecember people can pick an ornament off the spe-

cial Be a Santa to a Senior Christmas tree in the store, buy items on the list and return them unwrapped to the store, along with the ornament attached. The ornament will include the first name of a senior and their requested gift. The gifts will be collected Dec. 11, wrapped, then delivered to recipients a few days later. More about the Be a Santa to a Senior program, can be found at www. beasantatoasenior.com.

Bowlers help kids

Jumping from the older population to the younger generation, I wanted to tell you about a province-wide campaign that kicked off locally in aid of sick kids. Willowbrook Lanes in Langley is helping Variety The Children’s Charity with the two-month-long BC Bowl for Kids project, held in partnership with Bowl BC and Youth Bowling Canada. Throughout December and January, bowling cen-

Brent Carlson from Mainland presented a $50,000 cheque to the Langley Memorial Hospital Foundation last Thursday, towards the expansion of the maternity ward at the hospital. Langley Memorial Hospital has one of busiest maternity units in the region, with approximately 1,800 births per year, with a projected increase to

This year marks the 27th anniversary of the campaign, which has raised $3 million for children who have special needs. If you’re looking to give, but not necessarily big on the whole Christmas spirit, this might be for you.

Under the theme “It All Starts Here,” the foundation has launched a capital campaign to raise the remaining $5.35 million from private partners and members of the community like Mainland. Stay tuned to the Langley Advance for updates on this expansion efforts and the ongoing community fundraising campaign.

Music

Songs of celebration Two concerts this month will bring the sounds of the season to local audiences.

by Heather Colpitts hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

F

or almost a decade there has been a group of people who get together each Monday just for the love of music. The Langley Concert Band was started in 2003 as an adult band and evolved to include high school students. “Currently we have over 30 members between the ages of 14 and 70-something,” said artistic director Brenda Wilson. Those 30 members are hoping to share an array of music, mostly Christmas, with the community at Winter Frolic. The annual band concert is set for Sunday, Dec. 9 at the West Langley Hall. In Winter Frolic the band will present a wide variety of music… many well-known Christmas songs as well as carols from around the world. Other favourites will be Christmas songs from Broadway. There’s even a little “Opera

meets Christmas and Bugs Bunny” selection. “There’s sure to be something for everyone – and a little carolling as well – and it promises to be fun for the whole family,” Wilson said. The show starts at 2:30 p.m. in the hall at 9400 208th St. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for those 18 and younger, or $40 for a family. The band is always accepting new members. “It is a really nice group of people and very welcoming to new members,” she said. “We are always willing to take more people, regardless of instrument and there is no audition, but one year’s playing experience is required.” Rehearsals are Mondays 7-9 p.m. in the band room of R.E. Mountain Secondary, 7755 202A St. In addition to public concerts, the concert band has performed at Fort Langley’s annual May Day celebrations, the Brookswood Summer Festival, the Langley Canada Day festivities, the Ladner

munity members wanting an outlet for their love of music. From 2000 to 2010 Brenda Wilson was the director of the Langley Community Chorus. It was from that group that the original Langley Concert Band was formed so in the early years, there was plenty of crossover. The band was made up of about 75 per cent chorus member and 25 per cent friends/community members. “That gradually shifted, mainly because two night a week for music is a big commitment,” explained Wilson, also the Opus artistic director. In Opus One, half the membership used to sing in Langley Community Chorus. Of those, two are former members of the band and only one continues to be in both Langley Concert Band and Opus One. For Here Comes Santa Claus, on Dec. 16 at Brookswood Senior Centre, 19899 36th Ave, Opus One is offering a a collection of well-known and some not so wellknown Christmas and Hanukkah songs. “You’ll hear such annual favourites as The Holly and the Ivy and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas along with seasonal

music from around the world including, Italy, Finland, and England, to name a few. The program would not be complete without some Broadway Christmas classics such as It’s Beginning to Look Like Christmas and My Favourite Things. There’s even a traditional Christmas spiritual and of course, a carol sing-along – certainly fun for the whole family.” Tickets for the 2:30 p.m. show are $15 for adults, $10 for those 18 and younger, or $40 for a family. Many of the choir members sang together in a mixed choir, but are enjoying the new experience of singing in an all-women’s group. Wilson explained that besides performing two major public concerts a year, the choir enjoys performing at seniors’ housing complexes, hospitals, festivals and other community events. Members had their second annual choir retreat in October, which was a fabulous experience both musically and socially. There’s no audition for women interested in joining. The requirement to join – a love of singing. Get more at http://opusonewe. blogspot.ca/ or opusonewe@ gmail.com. Rehearsals are Wednesday 7-9 p.m. in the R.E. Mountain choir room.

They give so much back to us, and without that, we would lose our purpose of being songwriters, entertainers, and musicians… thank you a million times.” Brownlee spent much of Sunday night on stage at the semi-private ceremony at the Coast Hotel and Convention Centre in Langley, not only accepting the majority of awards but also performing. “I performed my current single, Listen, and it was right at the beginning of the show,” he explained. “After I was done, I went back stage to put my guitar away, and they called mine and Mitch Merrett’s name for songwriter of the year. I had to run on stage, since there was a pretty long pause after the announcement. Whoops!” Brownlee recounted. The accolades kept coming throughout the show. “It was obviously a great feeling to hear my name being called,” Brownlee said. continued on page A20…

Langley’s Dallas Smith scored some bling Sunday for video of the year for his song Somebody Somewhere.

Langleyites score at country awards …continued from page A19 “But I honestly wished someone else could have gone up to accept them for me, after the first couple. It’s not just me behind all of these awards, there are so many people who have helped get me to this point, both personally and professionally,” he said, grateful his parents, Al and Laura Brownlee, were able to travel down from Kelowna for the show. “They have supported me in everything that I have done. I’m very fortunate to have such a great upbringing,” he said, repeatedly thanking them along with his wife Katie and his managers Mitch Merrett, Mike Denney, and Carmen Choney for their backing. Coming off the recent Boys of Fall Tour, and lots of writing, Brownlee said he’s taking a break over the holidays, travelling to Minnesota to see his wife’s family and to Maryland to visit with his sister and her kids, before returning home to start work on another album expected out in fall 2013.

“Winning… obviously means a lot. I have worked hard on becoming a better entertainer and will continue to do so,” Brownlee said. “But awards shouldn’t change anything about you. They should remind you how lucky you are to be accepted by your peers and your fans. The second you think you deserve an award is the same time you lose site of what it’s all about. It’s important to keey your ego in check, cause it could some day be your demise,” he shared, still admittedly in shock and humbled by the weekend’s windfall. In addition to all the industry and fan accolades given to Brownlee, fellow Langley singer and songwriter Dallas Smith won video of the year for Somebody Somewhere. As well, Aldergrove resident Linda Corscadden was crowned country music person of the year and given the humanitarian of the year award, and Langley’s Paul Caravetta – an avid BCCMA supporter, was inducted into the BCCMA hall of fame.

umba is one of the hottest crazes in fitness and a far cry from the suffering of the victims of modern-day slavery. But Zumba is going to help raise money and awareness. Christmas Zumba to Give Hope is a local fundraiser Dec. 8 organized by local antihuman trafficking advocates who make up the Walnut Grove Secondary Value of Life group. Anna Demian is a Walnut Grove Secondary student and longtime activist with the group. “We want to see Canada mobilize together in… unity against human trafficking,” she said. What keeps her actively lobbying against human slavery is her belief that it is an “abomination of the value of life” which she wants to see changed. “People are worth more than to be bought and sold,” Demian said. This will be the group’s second Zumba fundraiser for the cause and will be led by instructor Gabriel Smith. continued on A21…

Zumba for sick kids

A fundraiser collects toys for BC Children’s Hospital. by Maria Rantanen Glacier Media

A

nne Gordon’s sixyear-old daughter Georgia wanted to know if Santa Claus visited children who were in the hospital at Christmas and whether they would receive presents on Christmas Day. Gordon decided she wanted to do something to make sure children at BC Children’s Hospital had presents at Christmas, and she’s drawing on her zumba skills to make this happen. This Saturday, she will lead a Zumbathon in Langley and the price of admission is an unwrapped toy. (See list of toys at www.langleyadvance.com.) “Bring in a toy and in return you get to dance, sweat, laugh, smile and have tons of fun,” Gordon said. Gordon said since it’s the “season of giving,” she wanted to do something “awesome” this year at Christmas and for the children who have to spend the holiday in hospital. “With your help, I want to make a child’s Christmas brighter and what better way than to provide a infant, child, tween, [or] teen with something of their very own on Christmas morning,” Gordon said. In her zumba classes, men and women of all ages, shapes, and fitness levels come out to what she calls “exercise in disguise,” describing it as “a Latininspired, calorie-burning dance fitness-party.” Participants can alter their moves during zumba according to their fitness level, Gordon said. Classes are about an hour long and incorporate different dance styles, for example, cumbia, merengue, salsa, reggaeton, mambo, rumba, flamenco, tango and calypso. Gordon chalks up the growing popularity to the fact it’s easy and fun. Using resistance training and interval training, it’s good for allbody toning, she added. Participants should wear clothing to move freely and lateral support footwear (no bare feet). The Zumbathon is at Dancing for Dessert Ballroom at #3 - 20279 97th Ave. The owner has donated the space. • More at www.langleyadvance.com

Tart tradition into third generation

B

renda Alberts, owner of Birthplace of B.C. Gallery in Fort Langley, hunted through her attic in search of a photograph. She had hoped to find an image of her and her late mother, but was equally thrilled to discover a picture of herself, at about age two, sitting on the bumper of her Grandma Vincent’s car. It was this woman who first introduced Brenda to an all-time favourite butter tart recipe she still whips up every Christmas. “She passed away when I was five, but her butter tarts live on,” Alberts said. “When I was a little girl growing up in Northern Ontario, Christmas was a time that special gifts were handmade and special recipes were baked,” she recounted. “This particular recipe is from my Grandma Vincent, which dates back to the 1920s and which was passed onto my mom and onto me,” Alberts added, noting that she lost her grandmother when she was five, and more recently her own mother in 1986, but keeps this family tradition alive in their absence. “She would be pleased that I pass on our special recipe,” Alberts said, sharing fond memories of baking the tarts with her mother. “I used to stand on a chair and help roll the dough; a special glass was used to make the right size for the tart. It was a special time that was just my mom and I, and this fond memory I pass on to you.”

Brenda Alberts as a youngster, had her picture taken sitting on the bumper of her Grandma Vincent’s car. She now shares her grandmother’s butter tart recipe with all.

“Dutch Masters”

RECIPE

since 1977

Meringue made holiday special despite hard financial times

A

nne Marrison started making meringues when she kept chickens on a rural acreage and fed them mainly bran cooked with kitchen scraps from her big vegetable garden. “We let them roam the place in summer, fall, and winter, whenever the crops could handle chicken,” she said. “They ran fast enough to catch flies.” The family was very poor, but had lots of eggs, and meringues made nice Christmas gifts for very little money, she explained. “In those days, I always made meringues with a hand beater, and cooked them in an oil range, which also heated water for the bathroom. “One Christmas, we got a blow-back down the oil range chimney and a whole sheet of meringues that was out to cool turned black with soot,” Marrison recounted. “So did I.” “It was a tiny old house (650 square feet) built on tree trunks, and the back bedroom had been used to dry out mink skins. At night we could hear bits of wood falling from carpenter ants inside the walls. But we were young, healthy, thrilled to have a home of our own, and we had good neighbours,” she said. “We had some very happy Christmases in that little house.”

Keep this up until all the icing sugar is used. When the whipped egg whites stand in stiff peaks and a small spoonful dumped on the cookie sheet holds its shape, the mix is ready for the cookie sheet. I spoon out a tablespoon per time and flatten the top of each. Some ovens are hotter than others. Mine is cooler than average. I set the temperature for 275ºF. My aim is to cook the meringues so they’re crisp all the way through, and I usually leave them in for two hours. People who like them soft in the middle or do tiny, teaspoon-size meringues won’t need to cook them as long.

NURSERIES

ured out what else I can use cream of tartar for. The quantity of icing sugar needs to be increased if the eggs are huge. Most fondue bowls can melt the chocolate if you allow enough time. Otherwise use a double boiler for melting. You can make meringues in all kinds of sizes and colours. They keep for many months in a tin at room temperature (if you hide them). – Anne Marrison Langley Advance garden columnist

Melt enough chocolate chunks to brush over the meringues. Then sprinkle the chopped, grated, or ground pistachio nuts over the melted chocolate. Eat the meringues with the chocolate at the bottom. The hardened chocolate makes a kind of dish, and you avoid getting meringue crumbs all over your clothes. It seems expensive to buy a whole box of cream of tartar for one pinch – but I have been using the same box since the late 1960s, mainly because I’ve never fig-

First I line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Then I wipe the bowl I’ll use with a paper towel wetted with vinegar. It’s important to make sure no trace of fat is left on the bowl. Next I crack three eggs very carefully. If any speck of egg yolk gets into the whites, the meringues won’t thicken properly. I dump the egg whites in the bowl and add a pinch of cream of tartar. This stabilizes the egg whites. Then I beat the whites with an electric

Annual Kids Can Help Talent Show features 17 acts

by Heather Colpitts hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

T

he second annual Kids Can Help Talent Show and Silent Auction has an ambitious goal, making more than last year’s very successful event.

“We have a huge goal of $20,000 to raise this year. So far, we have over $3,500.” Sean Thomas

“Last year we raised over $3,000 and we are hoping to beat it this time,” Sean Thomas said. The talent show on Dec. 7 will feature singing, dance, piano music, poetry, and comedy with the intent of raising money for

the organization that Kids Can Help supports, the BC Children’s Hospital. “Once again, the Langley community has been amazing,” said the young leader of Kids Can Help. Sean himself is a singer who already has an album to his name by the time he was nine (back in 2010). It was sold to raise money for the battle against cancer. Kids Can Help grew out of that effort and now devotes all funds raised to BC Children’s Hospital. Last year Kids Can Help raised about $15,300. Members – all kids – get together, and plan fundrais-

explained. Lest anyone think that, because Kids Can Help is a group of kids, the event will be kid-stuff, think again. The silent auction items include BC Lions tickets and a signed hat, airfare on Harbour Air to Victoria, a night at the Hampton Inn in Cloverdale, a 15-game flex pass for the Langley Rivermen hockey team, gift cards, Claire Newell luggage, a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory basket, Vancouver Aquarium tickets, and more. “This talent show will have a bigger auction, and because it’s close to Christmas, people can do some shopping,” he said.

ing events such as bottle drives, a car wash, the talent show and garage sales. Young people interested in joining or finding out more can contact Sean Thomas at kidscanhelpkids@gmail.com. Sean and 16 other acts will perform, starting at 7 p.m. on Friday. The talent show is at Langley Fundamental Elementary School, 21789 50th Ave. Admission is by donation (minimum $5 suggested) and people can get in on the silent auction. “We have a huge goal of $20,000 to raise this year. So far, we have over $3,500 and we are hoping this event will bring us closer to our goal,” Sean

Holiday baking tips

Cold ingredients key to keeping flaky pie dough flaky

N

othing compares to the aroma of baked Christmas goodies when you’re coming in from the cold winter weather. Our olfactory senses – sense of smell – contribute up to 80 per cent to our sense of taste, and thus is a very important part of our ability to recognize and enjoy flavour. The art of holiday baking is a regular activity in many households this time of the year, and some baking tips may be helpful to you. Flaky pie dough is a pastry that has a mixture of shortening and/ or butter that is “cut in” so that there are small chunks still left in the finished product. Those little chunks aid in creating steam pockets within the crust, which help with the leavening process, and thus creating the

flaky texture. It is best to keep pie pastry as cold possible while mixing and rolling, to prevent melting the butter and shortening pieces prematurely. The best way to do it is to first focus on your ingredients. Make sure you are using ice water, instead of cold water, and frozen butter grated into the flour mixture is ideal. The frozen butter particles then are already the required size from the grater, and will not suffer from the warm friction of too much mixing or cutting-in. Secondly, try not to touch the dough with your hands too much, as the warmth from them will melt the butter. It is best to form the dough by folding it over consistently with a chilled metal dough cutter. Once the dough is formed into

a flat disk, wrap and place it in the refrigerator until thoroughly chilled. Remove, and proceed with rolling, ideally on a chilled marble surface. Cookies and quick breads are also very popular, and they both rely on baking soda and/or baking powder to rise. Baking soda and baking powder are considered chemical leaveners. Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate, and it requires liquid and an

acid to make a gaseous reaction. It is usually added to recipes that have a naturally occurring acid in the ingredients, such as buttermilk, yogurt, sour cream, honey, molasses, and/or fruits. Baking powder, on the other hand, is a complete leavener, as it only requires liquid for it to react in the same manner. The baking powder reacts on its own because it contains a mixture of baking soda and a balanced amount of acid, along with starch

to help prevent it from lumping. That is why you will see some recipes that call for baking powder and others with baking powder and/or baking soda. A good comparison of this would be a pancake recipe, compared to a buttermilk pancake recipe. Whatever desserts you choose to celebrate with, I wish you all the best of health and happiness this holiday season. Dear Chef Dez,

Could you please tell me how I can make self-rising flour by myself?

Kimie T., Maple Ridge

Dear Kimie, Yes, by all means. Mix together 1 cup of flour with one and a half teaspoons of baking powder, and half a teaspoon of salt.

Langley Christian squad zaps Duchess

The Lightning faced off in the finals against a squad they had battled all season long.

Several students at Langley Christian School may be having trouble concentrating on their studies, still elated over boys volleyball team and its AA division win at the provincial championships Dec. 1 in Kelowna. The entire year the Lightning were leading up to this point, and for many of these athletes dreaming since they were Grade 7. Every game they played in taught them something key to the success of the final game, coach said. They worked their way through teams from Clarence Fulton, Cambie, Gulf Islands, Duchess Park, and Okanagan Mission before facing Duchess Park in the final. The team knew it had to come out strong to influence its draw but at this level, every game is a challenge. “In the quarter finals we came up against a team also unbeaten in the tournament in Gulf Islands. We learned how to overcome underdog energy from our opponents and playing focused and calm down a set losing the first set and then winning in four,” coach Aaron VandenBrink said. “We battled hard and learned that if we believe in ourself we can overcome any obstacles, showing great character and focus by forcing our way back from a seemingly insurmountable 13-9 deficit in the 5th and deciding set to win 15-13.” Ben Macadam provided a block late in the action on game point.

Charity

Soccer supporters People can bring donations for the Langley Christmas Bureau and Langley Food Bank.

The Langley Christian School Lightning achieved gold at the boys AA volleyball provincials. The finals, against Dutchess Park, was the continuation of a battle that went on between the two squads all year. Prior to this game every match played between the two teams had gone to a final deciding set (third set or fifth set). The provincials would be no different. “Much of the game we played from behind, losing the first and third sets, fighting to even it up in the second and fourth with key leadership by our captains, Mike Grypma, Eli Tolkamp,

Levi VandenBrink, and Braden Heppell,” VandenBrink said. In the fifth game, the boys found themselves down 7-8 but then the scoring started, first one, then another until they were up 14-8. “In poetic fashion we wrote our name into history with a solo roof block by Jeremy Hansma,” the coach said. The championship point was in their grasp and they achieved gold. The Lighting players are Mark Antoniuk, Joel Hansen,

Isaiah Dahl, Aiden Kits, Ben Macadam, Levi Vandenbrink, Mitchell Jarvie, Mike Grypma, Eli Tolkamp, Jeremy Hansma, Fran VanWyk and Braden Heppell. “That night we played for the love of competition and the game that we put thousands of hours into, for our teammates who we have been through blood, sweat and tears with, and for our Creator who has give us the gifts to play this sport. We were out there to honor and glorify Him,” assistant coach Jesse Zuidhof said.

New signing exhibiting plenty of potential The Langley Rivermen have added a player who they feel has a boatload of potential. Late last week, the ’Men acquired 1994-born forward Nathan Craft from the Alberni Valley Bulldogs for future considerations. Craft, from Kitimat, has played in 24 games this season recording five goals and five assists. The previous year he played in the BC Major Midget League for the Cariboo Cougars and had a huge season offensively, registering 27 goals and 21 assists in 35 games. “Nathan is a guy that we noticed a lot when we saw Alberni earlier in the year. He has

himself and we expect good things from him.” Coach Henderson was quick to point out what he likes about the 18 year-old’s game, but the thing he was impressed with the most was his combination of grit and skill. “Players like him are hard to come by nowadays,” Henderson said. “He is a power forward who brings a lot to the table and when he finds his niche with us, he will be a hard player to stop.” Ironically, Craft’s first game was against his former club Saturday at the Weyerhaeuser Arena.

Nathan Craft will be given every opportunity to show his skills with the Rivermen.

decent size, likes the physical play and has great touch around the net,” Rivermen head coach and general manager Bobby Henderson said. The Rivermen’s coaching staff believe that Craft, a 6’1” 191 pound winger, will be a great fit on their roster. “Alberni earlier in the year had him in a top six role and ever since he has been rotating throughout the line-up,” Henderson said. “We will give him plenty of opportunity to prove

TWU declaws ‘Cats U-15s surprise visiting team Basketball

Trinity Western’s blowout was a ‘great way to end the first half of the season,’ according to the head coach. The Trinity Western University Spartans and Brandon University Bobcats closed out the first half of the Canada West women’s basketball regular season with a one-sided affair. The Spartans dominated, coming away with a 74-23 win Saturday night in Brandon. “Tonight’s game was a great indication of how hard we’ve been working this term and is a great way to end the first half of the season. Despite some of the factors that we had to deal with earlier in the day with travel and having played a really tough game against Regina, the team’s response was about togetherness and playing for each other,” TWU head coach Cheryl JeanPaul said, following the game. “We look forward to a break but also for the chance to get back to the gym and work on some of the skills and game decisions that the teams we have played against us have revealed. I am proud of how we’ve fought through some of the adversity and look forward to continuing to move forward as a program.” The Bobcats struggled to find a groove on the offensive end,

shooting 16 per cent from the field as a team. The Spartans were much the opposite, shooting at 51.6 per cent as a team. Emily Knauff finished one rebound shy of a double-double, leading all scorers as well (14 points, nine rebounds). Chelsey Olsen finished with 12 points, while Stephanie Carkner put up 10 points. TWU forward Holly Strom finished the game with nine points and seven boards, but what was most notable were her five steals and five blocked shots. The five blocks ties the TWU record, which was set by Corina Reimer against St. F.X. on Oct. 12, 2007. The five by Strom is the most by a Spartan in a Canada West conference game. Stephanie Haynes was the top Bobcat player with seven points. Both teams will now enter the holiday break before resuming competition in the New Year. The Spartans will welcome the University of Alberta Pandas on Jan. 11, 2013. Regina Cougars 72, Spartans 63 TWU pushed the No. 3 University of Regina Cougars for the majority of the game Friday night, but fell short in the final frame to fall 72-63 at the Centre for Kinesiology, Health & Sport in Regina. The loss drops the Spartans’ record to 1-8.

Special to the Langley Advance

It was full steam ahead for Langley’s U15 girl’s lacrosse team on Saturday. Langley found its foot hold early in the game, taking New Westminster by surprise. It took just two minutes for Alexandra Potter to show New West which way the game was going to go, as she ran through the midfield and onto the goal in the blink of an eye. New West responded well with an onslaught of goals, until Langley’s Shaelyn Ogilivie muscled her way through three defenders before putting her first away, opening the floodgates for Langley. Goals came quick and fast from Shannon Walker, Charlie Jones, and Melaina Ristich. And then, what has to be the goal of the match came from deep in Langley’s defence, as Melissa Flint scooped a loose ball and took flight. New West threw everything they had at her, but to no avail. Flint made it look like a walk in the park as she buried her shot past the New Westminster keeper. Second half was all Langley’s, despite New West’s attempts to

get back in the game. Ogilivie was again in the thick of it, powering over New West’s already battered and bruised defence to put two more goals under her belt. Jaylene Soegard put two more away, and did it with flare.

Switching hands as she went, she effectively confused the New West defenders. Then Langley’s Hannah Ferguson came from nowhere, flashed through midfield, and finished the game for a 13-8 tally in Langley’s favour.

A game of Mammoth proportions is coming to the Langley Events Centre Saturday. And the Calgary Roughnecks feel they’ll be up for the challenge as, for the second consecutive December, the National Lacrosse League returns to the LEC. In 2011, the Toronto Rock and Washington Stealth clashed in an pre-season pro lacrosse battle in front of a capacity crowd at the events centre. A total of 4,791 fans watched Washington clip Toronto 14-13 in overtime. This time around, on Dec. 8, the Calgary Roughnecks and Colorado Mammoth will meet in the LEC’s arena bowl. The NLL pre-season match-up is part of an eventful three days of activities at the LEC, starting Friday and wrapping up Sunday (Dec. 7-9). The game itself will showcase the NLL’s top two teams, in terms of winning percentage, from the 2012 regular season. The Roughnecks led the league with a 12-4 mark, followed by the Mammoth at 11-5. It will also feature some of the game’s premier stars in John Grant Jr. (Colorado), Gavin Prout (Colorado), Scott Ranger (Calgary), and Shawn Evans (Calgary). On Friday, the second annual coaches’ chalk talk will take place, followed by a social. Coaches from both teams will host the clinic in conjunction with team practices, allowing fellow coaches to see first-hand how the professionals treat training. On the Saturday, there will be four players’ clinics in which young lacrosse hopefuls will have the chance to learn from the best in business on the turf at the LEC. “The National Lacrosse League is pleased to have Langley Events Centre host a second pre-season game following the great success of last year’s event,” said Brian Lemon, NLL VP of operations. Following the game, fans will be able to take part in a free autograph session on the turf, with players on both teams. Roughnecks head coach/assistant GM Curt Malawsky can’t wait for this week-

Stealth on board Troy Landreville/Langley Advance

Last month, the LEC added the Washington Stealth to the weekend itinerary. The Stealth, which played at last year’s event, will host its training camp at the LEC during the weekend. The Stealth will practice on Saturday from 8-10 a.m. and 3-5 p.m. and again on Sunday from 12:15 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. In addition to the practice times, Washington will also be participating in the coaches’ chalk talk Friday night, and the players’ clinics happening all weekend. Some select players from the Stealth roster will also be available following Saturday’s game between the Mammoth and Roughnecks. Fans who purchased tickets to the game will be able to watch the Stealth practice sessions for free. Washington boasts one of the most talented rosters in the NLL, including three players from the 2012 Western Lacrosse Association champion Langley Thunder roster: Lewis Ratcliff, Athan Iannucci, and Brett Hickey.

Malawsky says the Thunder have a first-class facility to play in, and hopes the atmosphere will be as electric as it was during last year’s pre-season matchup. “Last year was a sell out and they’re hoping to do the same this year,” he said. “The LEC is run very professionally, and the Thunder does a great job in there.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Your wise, mellow mood continues, as do a stream of opportunities in far travel, education, publishing, law, cultural venues and other profound zones. You might find these end up as smaller things, or that smaller things lead to or benefit the bigger. (E.g., far, foreign travel becomes lucky when you engage in short, local trips. Or a large publishing venture emerges from a series of smaller emails.) This week and next, you’ll be increasingly drawn into these areas (travel, education, etc.) – to your benefit. A love affair might arrive. Bosses, parents are temperamental: smile! Taurus April 20-May 20: Early week brings an exciting or inspiring meeting, perhaps the stirrings of passion. Your instincts are accurate here regarding communicating, friendship, light romance (so make a light, friendly phone call) – but you might be fooled (perhaps by yourself) regarding sex, intimacy and “possession.” These last themes (intimacy) become more pronounced Tuesday afternoon to Thursday – you will probably learn clearly where another stands. Your sexual and financial antennae are alert: a good investment or debt reduction opportunity awaits. Wisdom, gentle moods flow over you late week. Gemini May 21-June 20: Tackle chores Sunday p.m. to pre-dawn Tuesday. (Avoid working with or on the water, laundry appliances, etc.) The tone of this month is struck Tuesday afternoon to Thursday morning: relationships, opportunities, relocation themes, exciting meetings – and possible competition or opposition. (Defuse these with diplomacy and cheerful softness.) Thursday midday to midday Saturday brings secrets, financial and sexual urges, and health concerns – a bonanza awaits if you research, investigate. These days can deepen a bond with someone. You can make a great new friend this week. Talk!

Cancer June 21-July 22: Work and health concerns remain important for two more weeks. Though early Sunday is sluggish, restful, the eve into Tuesday offers beauty, nature’s poetry, charming kids and romantic notions. Insight mixes with blind spots, so don’t take life-changing steps. Chores and health claim attention Tuesday afternoon to Thursday – charge in, almost everything succeeds. Thursday afternoon starts two days of exciting meetings, attractions, opportunities, fresh horizons – and possible enmity or challenge. (So practise diplomacy.) Long-range, believe in love – it’s coming (2013/14?). Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Charge after what/who you want. Take a chance; risks are likely to lead to bountiful rewards. Enroll kids in a great school. If you’re single and want someone, say so – to him/ her. Your creative talents are right there, waiting to be used. You’ll win at sports, games and cards. Don’t delay – only 12 days remain of this splendid, rewarding phase. True love might come from a group meeting, or from friends’ introduction. (So don’t avoid parties, gatherings.) These themes are especially strong midweek. Earlier (Sunday eve to early Tuesday) be restful, contemplate. Chores, Friday/Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Settle down, settle in all week, especially midweek. Your domestic situation is warm, vibrant, welcoming – and taking a few naps in the sunny window would be a good idea. It’s hibernation time – any extra rest you get now will redound to your benefit Dec. 21 onward, when adventure, creativity and romance approach (and demand extra energy). Sunday afternoon to midday Tuesday brings errands, trips, communications with fascinating (romantic?) overtones. You might speak with a mate prospect. Romantic and creative notions arise Thursday noon to Saturday – but don’t push. Rest.

Dec. 9 - Dec. 15, 2012

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Paperwork, calls, visits, casual friends, siblings and errands fill your days – especially midweek. Channel all anger or friction into the physical side of home: repairs, renos, landscaping, etc. In some extreme cases, the choice becomes: renos, etc., or the possible end of a relationship (if it formed since January 2011). Both can also occur: think deeply before acting. Chase money Sunday p.m., Monday. Home (and those potential repairs, etc., and domestic friction) is accented Thursday afternoon to Saturday noon. Paradoxically, new friendship and/or love might also blossom. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Continue to chase money – especially Tuesday eve to Wednesday midnight. A new earning (or spending) project brews these two days – it might be luckily connected to an investment or money partnership/association. (Unusual example: your spouse finds employment for you.) This is a good interval (Tuesday eve/night) to purchase land, food/shelter items, children’s items, electronics and high-tech, especially if they’re tools of your trade. A sensual relationship might blossom – but it would not suit marriage. Earlier, Sunday/Monday, your charisma, energy soar. Errands, calls, Friday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness remain high – and surge even higher midweek. Start important things, make contact, see and be seen. If you’re single, someone’s attracted. Though you hold the short-term advantage, they hold the long-term one. You might have to make the first move (or genuflection). Remember, until next July you will benefit hugely from approaching others, being a team player, forging a link in love or business. Throw aside false pride: embrace good fortune. Rest, plan Sunday to Tuesday afternoon. Chase money, Thursday eve onward. Buy on Friday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Continue to retreat, rest and plan rather than charge into the hurly- burly world. Your energy is low, especially midweek. Hopes rise Sunday eve to Tuesday; you’re inspired in social zones, fooled in monetary ones. Midweek deepens your thoughts: be sure to fulfill governmental, institutional or head office requirements, paperwork. Your energy and charisma rise somewhat late Thursday to midday Saturday. A wish could come true (Friday) – but more probably, you will take a step toward fulfillment of a much larger wish or life goal, one that might take 1015 years to manifest: good! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Wishes can come true, especially midweek. Your social life continues to expand or buoy you. Life’s good! Be ambitious Sunday p.m. to Tuesday noon – don’t mix money and friendship. Popularity, light romance, entertainment, group functions arrive Tuesday to Thursday – welcome these. Envision your future, make plans. (Try this: after 5 p.m. PST, but before 9:30, write your deepest wish on a blank paper, fold it in half twice, then put it under your mattress. Leave it there until you forget about it.) Retreat, rest Thursday eve to Saturday noon – after this, your energy soars. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Charge after your ambitions, especially midweek, when a new project, career role,or status opportunity begins to form.Though Sunday morn is misty, mysterious, the afternoon into Tuesday bring wisdom and a mellow mood. A subtle difficulty might underlie peer relationships, but relations with higher-ups will improve over the few weeks ahead. The world looks bright, happy Thursday afternoon to Saturday noon – your popularity rises, light romance or other social joys arrive, and a minor wish (about money?) might come true. By Saturday eve, withdraw to rest and contemplate. timstephens@shaw.ca
