Father wins dyslexia rights case
High court rules special education cuts discriminated against son
Jane Seyd firstname.lastname@example.org
A North Vancouver father says he’s elated after winning a landmark court case that ruled the North Vancouver School District discriminated against his dyslexic son. Rick Moore, who began his legal battle 15 years ago, said he hopes the victory will help kids with learning disabilities get the help they need in the public school system. “The win against this district will have repercussions in all school districts,” he said. “They’ll think twice about cutting programs.” At the heart of the case was what responsibility the school system bears to help children with special needs succeed. In a decision handed down Friday morning, the Supreme Court of Canada agreed with Moore that by cutting services to his dyslexic son Jeff and failing to provide alternatives, the North Vancouver School District discriminated against Jeff by making it impossible for him to receive the education guaranteed to all children in B.C. “Adequate special education . . . is not a dispensable luxury,” the highest court ruled. “For those with severe learning disabilities, it is the ramp that provides access to the statutory commitment to education See Outdoor page 11
String of thefts prompts police warning Brent Richter email@example.com
POLICE are warning North Shore residents to be on the alert after a string of crimes in which thieves targeted people they knew were carrying large amounts of cash. There have been at least three similar cases of theft and one case of robbery in North Vancouver and West Vancouver since July, according to WVPD Const. Lisa Schmidtke, all of which involved the victims being followed from currency exchange shops. Investigators believe they could be linked. Police on the North Shore caught on to the bandits’ M.O. after a man and woman were robbed in a quiet residential West Vancouver neighbourhood last Friday afternoon. See Thieves page 9

70 YEARS LATER, A CANADIAN SPITFIRE PILOT THE RECALLS HEARTACHE AND HEROISM OF DIEPPE
A wing and a prayer
Martin Millerchip email@example.com
WEST Vancouver’s oldest living Spitﬁre pilot, Roman Roy “Wozzy” Wozniak, came closest to being shot down on June 2, 1942. It was the second sweep of the day for 403 “Wolf” Squadron of the Royal Canadian Air Force following an uneventful early-morning diversionary sweep over northern France when German ﬁghters attacked it. Wozniak’s squadron was split into three sections of four planes— blue, red and yellow — each ﬂying “ﬁnger four” formation. The next harrowing moments are recorded tersely in his logbook: “Flying Red 4 position when attacked by at least 45 Fokker Wolfe 190s and ME (Messerschmitt) 109s. Huns came from all directions trapping us inside of France. No escape. Sqdn. had to ﬁght it out. I received cannon ﬁre through fuselage, bullets in wings, engine and fuselage. Came home by myself and landed at home base.” The entry notes the names of six pilots out of 12 who failed to return home as well as one who was rescued from the English Channel. In fact, four of the six were captured by German troops after bailing out or crash-landing and spent the rest of the war as prisoners, a fact recorded in Peter Caygill’s book Spitﬁre Mark V in Action. Even so, it was a low point for Wolf Squadron: six pilots and eight aircraft lost. Wozniak’s brief log entry “came home by myself and landed at home base” doesn’t tell the whole story. The cannon shell that knocked his Spitﬁre Mark V into a spin left shrapnel in the armour plating of his seat and the heel of his shoe. When he came out of the spin, he had three German ﬁghters on his tail. Twice, Wozniak broke sharply into the attacking ﬁghters, the second time almost colliding with their leader, which was enough to make them break off the attack. But his troubles weren’t over. When he reached his Kenley (Surrey) base, the wheels on his plane wouldn’t drop. When this happened, pilots were instructed to dive and pull up, using gravity to release the wheel assemblies. But that day, Wozniak tried rocking his aircraft with the rudder ﬁrst, and that did the trick. It turned
out to be a lucky decision: If he had tried the dive, he likely would never have pulled out of it. Shrapnel had sheared one of the two cables that ran from his joystick to the elevators on the Spitﬁre’s tail wing, and the other was partially sheared and stretched. Fortune then gave Wozniak a third pass that afternoon. Worried about the possibility of a stall because of the excess play in his controls, he ﬂew straight in for a high-speed landing. But he came in too fast and realized he risked overshooting and hitting another plane at the end of the ﬁeld. As he tried to add power to go around for a second landing attempt, his engine died. Wozniak didn’t know it, but a bullet had taken out one of the engine’s 12 cylinders. Out of choices, he touched down with almost no room left to avoid a collision, but as his wheels hit the ground, his aircraft suddenly swung itself around and came to a quick stop as if controlled by an unseen hand. Another German bullet had passed through his wing and punctured his right tire, causing his plane to dig in and turn of its own accord. As Caygill records Wozniak: “When I got out of the aircraft the medical ofﬁcer asked me if I was OK. I said, ‘Just a moment,’ and looked up my pant legs to see if it was blood or sweat. Thank goodness it was sweat!” Recounting the landing 70 years later, Wozniak shakes his head and says, “Lucky, lucky.” He pauses. “You had to be lucky. I lost a lot of friends.” ••• Born June 29, 1919 in Saskatoon, Sask., Wozniak says his childhood was as normal as could be: two sisters, friends and lots of sports. His father was a maintenance worker for CN Rail. “We lived through the Depression years of course. The only trouble we got into was when we raided a neighbour’s garden for carrots or something like that.” Wozniak planned a career in pharmacy that, at the time, required a three-year apprenticeship and two years of university. He was in his second year of that apprenticeship with Ford’s Drugstore in Saskatoon when war was declared in 1939. He had recently taken his ﬁrst commercial ﬂight from Saskatoon to Regina with Air Canada in a plane “that held about six people.” The short trip had enthralled him, and he immediately volunteered as a pilot with the Royal Canadian Air Force.
“The fellow at the recruiting ofﬁce said to me, ‘We really want university grads for pilots. After all, we have the Maginot Line. I’ll take your name, and we’ll call you if we need you. “After Hitler walked around the Maginot Line, I got a callup.” However, the RCAF was ill prepared for training pilots, lacking both facilities and planes. Wozniak was eventually posted to RCAF Manning Pool in Toronto and then to guard duty at Hamilton airport. Elementary training ﬁnally began on March 29, 1941 at Fort William (Thunder Bay), where the instructors were mostly bush pilots and the planes mostly Tiger Moths. After 64 hours of dual and solo ﬂying there and 100 hours of service ﬂying in Manitoba, he graduated Aug. 8 — one of a few with a commission — and was earmarked for posting as a ﬂight instructor. However, a friend of his was about to get married and Wozniak asked that his friend get the Canadian posting and that he should go to England. Wozniak was subsequently posted to #59 Operational Training Unit at Crosby-on-Eden, Cumberland, England, where he received six more weeks of training before being posted to RCAF 416 Squadron in Peterhead, Scotland in December. “So I get to Peterhead, a new airport that has a couple of strips of asphalt and a muddy ﬁeld that’s a quagmire. I come in the adjutant’s ofﬁce and there’s this beautiful blond WAAF ofﬁcer behind the desk. I give her a snappy salute and report for 416 Squadron. “She asks where I was supposed to report, and I say Peterhead. ‘Well,’ she says, ‘this is Peterhead, but there’s no 416 Squadron.’ “Anyway she gets the CO (commanding ofﬁcer), and he says, ‘I don’t know anything about 416 Squadron.’ “Then a couple more walk in, so he says, ‘Take their names and billet them.’ “I guess you could say it was early days.” The new 416 Squadron became the ﬁrst line of defence against German bombers from Norway. As for that blond WAAF ofﬁcer: “I spoke with her a few more times. Little did she know she was stuck with me.” See In War page 5

In war, loss was part of life
From page 3
Margot Martin was the assistant station adjutant and in a few months she would accept Wozniak’s proposal of marriage. Canadian Press, reporting on 416 Squadron, dryly noted: “P/O Roy Wozniak of Saskatoon is the ﬁrst member of the squadron to go from solo to dual, having become engaged to Margot Martin, assistant station adjutant, on April 21. An engagement party was celebrated in the WAAF ofﬁcers’ mess, thoroughly enjoyed by all the 416 ofﬁcers except P/O Wozniak.” Shortly after the party, Wozniak and two other pilots were transferred to 403 Squadron on May 1 to take the place of other pilots who had been shot down. Asked what it was like forming friendships while facing the real possibility of being killed, Wozniak says, “In a way, you’re good friends and everything, but you don’t get too close — family-wise and so on.” Wozniak points to a photograph of himself sitting on the wing of his Spitﬁre with a small dog on his lap. An RCAF photographer whose job was to shoot “positive” propaganda photos posed it. Dogs as squadron mascots were popular. This particular little spaniel cross was called Lucy and belonged to fellow pilot Billy Lane. Shortly after the picture was taken, the squadron was briefed for a sweep over France “and just as we were getting out to our aircraft, here comes this soldier walking across the

They embraced and Billy said, ‘I’ll be back in a couple of hours and we’ll really whoop it up. Look after my dog.’ “The soldier takes the dog and says, ‘Say goodbye to your master.’ “And Billy says, ‘No, no, not “goodbye,” “so long.”’ “Wouldn’t you know it, Billy was the only one who didn’t come back. The CO had to tell the brother. The soldier took the dog and walked back across the ﬁeld, and I never heard anything more about the dog.” Despite his instinct to remain self-contained, Wozniak would become close friends with another Prairie boy in 403 Squadron, Ed Gardiner, the son of Jimmy Gardiner, former premier of Saskatchewan and Minister
of Agriculture in Mackenzie King’s cabinet. They roomed together and Wozniak enjoyed being kept up to date on Canadian politics by Gardiner’s letters from home. Gardiner would also survive 403’s ill-fated sortie over France on June 2, 1942, but was shot down during the infamous Dieppe Raid of Aug. 19 that same year. Flying two sorties that day to provide air cover for the boats of the landing force, 403 Squadron destroyed six German ﬁghters and damaged three more. It was a better showing than many of the RAF Spitﬁre squadrons. According to the BBC documentary Dieppe, the RAF lost 106 aircraft that day while shooting down 48 Luftwaffe planes. Wozniak is convinced that if the Allied planes had not been pawns on a map for Ground
Control in England but in direct communication with the troops on the ground, the air support would have been far more effective and fewer Canadian soldiers would have been killed. He believes that was one of the lessons learned from Dieppe and used later by Allied forces in Sicily and at Normandy. Gardiner was one of three pilot ofﬁcers lost that day by 403 Squadron. His body and that of his wingman, Norm Moncher, were found by the French, hidden away from the Germans and subsequently buried in Dieppe’s city cemetery. After the war, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission took over the cemetery in St. Aubin where the Germans had buried the

VIEWPOINT Published by North Shore News a division of LMP Publication Limited Partnership, 100-126 East 15th Street, North Vancouver, B.C. V7L 2P9. Doug Foot, publisher. Canadian publications mail sales product agreement No. 40010186.
Hard lesson A
landmark ruling Friday by the Supreme Court of Canada is more than a victory for a North Vancouver family; it’s a step forward for disadvantaged students across the country. When the North Vancouver school district told Rick Moore they had no programs to help his dyslexic son, Moore decided to ﬁght. Learning to read was a basic right of all students, he argued. Without the necessary help, the public education guaranteed to all would remain out of reach for his son. This week the top legal minds in the country agreed, noting pointedly “adequate special education… is not a dispensable luxury.” It’s a testament to Moore’s tenacity that he kept ﬁghting, despite two
lower court rulings against him. He has always maintained the case was never just about his son; it was about all kids with disabilities. And he’s right. We often pay lip service to helping our most vulnerable, but when money gets tight, those principles fray. Struggling families are seldom in a position to exert political pressure, and decision makers know that. Among other things, the ruling underscores the importance of the judicial system in making sure our professed principles of equality have teeth. The highest court is still where the buck stops in insisting that minority rights be respected, despite the ‘tyranny of the majority’ that can govern political decisions. We should all be thankful for that vigilance.

I ﬁnd it a conﬂict that this notice appears on the district site. It’s another concrete indication that public process is not being followed.

Dear Editor: Regarding recent story, Cyclist Beats Cyclist in Path Rage Incident (Oct. 28, North Shore News): I had my own encounter with path rage recently in West Vancouver. Being from North Vancouver and not familiar with the bicycle paths in West Van, I wound up inadvertently on the seawalk behind Park Royal. Seeing pedestrians, I operated my bicycle at an ultraslow rate. Suddenly, a man of a mature age placed himself squarely in front of my bicycle, causing me to fall over almost onto the rocks. Naturally I was angered, and I got up and asked him why he would do this. Angry words were exchanged, and other people started to get involved. Seeing that there would be no reasoning, I chose to be the bigger man and move away.
I was joined by another man who had entered the melee when he became afraid I was going to strike the man who had caused me to fall. He was not wrong; it had been very close. We walked together and discussed the incident. He was good enough to take me and show me where the bicycle path was. We agreed that while I was in error to have taken my bicycle onto a pedestrian pathway, the man’s reaction to my being there was foolish and out of proportion with the situation. I would ask anyone who ﬁnds themselves in a similar confrontation to consider whether their actions are sensible, mature and justiﬁed. An otherwise pleasant interlude on a beautiful day was interrupted unnecessarily, and the results could have been more serious. Paul Dukes North Vancouver

I am writing to commend Grosvenor property developers for their design of the tiered complex they propose. I think they have been very thoughtful and considerate of the community and its needs. The proposed design is a good compromise between a 16-storey highrise and a fourstorey complex and will make an exciting addition to the block. See The Taxpayer’s page 7

The taxi driver’s guide to domestic bliss CAB DRIVERS don’t get paid like doctors, and they certainly don’t enjoy a physician’s prestige. Still, we expect them to exercise equal discretion, right?
We passengers assume cabbies have seen it all: the sloppily amorous couples, the shifty cheapskates and the drunken teens. We expect these drivers to keep schtum and ﬁle away the stories of their fares, maybe trotting out the odd one to entertain friends over a post-shift beer. They have to be plenty jaded, we reckon. Nothing we can do could startle them. Thus, last week my husband Stanley and I assumed that the fellow who drove us from the Ottawa airport to our downtown hotel would be as quietly circumspect as a Buddhist monk as he listened in on our heated conversation. Poor Stanley, who carries a cellphone while I do not, always has to deal with our
Kate Zimmerman family’s emergency calls. So, shortly after landing, he was forced to try and sort out a squabble between Petunia and her brother Bart. We’d decided to leave them on their own for the better part of a week while Stanley attended a conference and I visited friends. This isn’t new; they’re grown-up enough to cope. Yet Stanley was tied up on the phone, trying to mediate the dispute from the disembarking zone all the way to the luggage
carousel, into the taxi lineup and then right into the cab. The conﬂict had been caused by my slap-dash decision to leave more “emergency money” with one child than the other, due to one child’s being older and therefore responsible for any random household expenses. The insult to the younger one was too treacherous to be borne; whereas the older sibling didn’t appreciate being woken up and harassed simply for being the recipient of the lion’s share. Stanley got tired of trying to discuss this on his lonesome and decided to put one of our kids on speakerphone. All of us then made our exasperation clear. After Stanley hung up, with no clear resolution of this extremely tedious (and unusual) dispute, our previously silent cabdriver ﬁnally weighed in. He had a thick accent, and his intonation was of the weary Eastern European variety. “My friends, the problem is not with your children; it is
with you,” he boomed in his deep voice, staring ahead as he navigated Colonel By Drive in rush hour. “I have two words for you: Gestalt therapy.” Uh…. He proceeded to tell us that this issue would never come up between his own children, because he didn’t treat them in an unequal fashion, and he would never give them money. All was harmonious in his home, he said, with everybody dedicated to the collective good. For some reason, this did not make me admire the cabdriver, or long to thank him for his generous counsel. Rather, I wondered how much it would hurt if we quietly opened the car doors while the vehicle was moving and ﬂopped out, and then how fast we could run away. I was already fuming about the battle of Petunia and Bart, and had quarreled with Stanley over whether I was to blame because I was too vague in deﬁning the purpose of the money. Our trip was getting
off to a terrible start. And while I am ordinarily drawn to any man who looks and sounds like Topol in Fiddler on the Roof, did I really need the Reb Tevye of Bulgaria weighing in? He evidently felt that the 10 minutes he had been forced to spend in our company had made him an expert on our family dynamic. I have rarely been more embarrassed. The cabbie went on to recommend an internationally renowned therapist he admired, who had an unintelligible name. “Google him,” he suggested. Google him? I couldn’t even spell him. Out of curiosity, I did Google “gestalt” later on, attempted to read an explanation of it and couldn’t understand a word. Even the diagrams were bafﬂing. Over the course of our seemingly interminable ride together, our new advisor revealed that in university he had studied theology, psychology and philosophy. (I guess recklessness came naturally.)
The taxpayer’s best defence is more taxpayers
From page 6
Too often, the individual cannot see the bigger picture; I believe the residents of the area should consider the following: 1) It is plain to see for any proud member of the community that the waterfront village of Ambleside is in need of revitalization. 2) Some residents may feel that a seven/eight-
storey building will block their views, but as the community is built on a slope, it will have less effect than most realize. All will still have a limited view east to the Lions Gate Bridge and of sunsets to the west. The proposed development will be a welcome view in itself. Residents should be reminded that district council has struggled to keep property taxes down for the last few years, but they cannot continue to do this as

The community will need to broaden its tax base — by increased development, both residential and commercial — if it wants to protect the residential taxpayer from exorbitant increases.

He’d left Bulgaria for Ottawa and had returned to his homeland to become a businessman. He’d moved back to our national capital after discovering his former country had been ruined by corruption. I felt sorry for this wellmeaning fellow, so I resisted my urge to suggest he re-visit Bulgaria and try to make it work. Instead, I respectfully did not roll out into trafﬁc. And kind-hearted Stanley gave him a tip. email@example.com

Mall neighbours in COME for some loud nights TOGETHER for the Holidays
Jeremy Shepherd email@example.com
NIGHTTIME construction noise will continue on Marine Drive this November and possibly into December as Park Royal construction crews hustle to get the road ready for holiday shoppers.
West Vancouver council voted unanimously Monday, albeit with a few reservations, to exempt construction crews from noise bylaws for 15 nights of construction and demolition work in November and December. Work began on replacing the overpass that connects the two halves of Park Royal across Marine Drive with an at-grade intersection last July. The project was slated to be ﬁnished by the end of October, but design changes and difﬁculty ﬁnding equipment for the new trafﬁc signal on Marine Drive have caused delays. The intersection is now set to be operational Nov. 12. The noise bylaw exemption will affect many nearby residents, according to Coun. Nora Gambioli. “There are hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people living just a few feet away,” said Gambioli, who initially opposed the exemption. “My concern is about residents who live next to this.” Construction crews are scheduled to work from Nov. 13 to Nov. 30, starting at 11 p.m. and ﬁnishing at 6 a.m. from Sunday night to Thursday night, according to Park Royal communication co-ordinator Amanda Eaton. The pedestrian bridge is set to be removed Nov. 20. Despite initial resistance, the outnumbered

NIGHTIME construction will start at Park Royal this week. Gambioli ultimately voted in favour of the motion. “The overpass has to come down. You can’t knock it down in one or two nights,” said Coun. Craig Cameron. “It would be asinine for (Park Royal) to have a drawn-out process.” “It’s a question of public safety to do it at night,” concurred Mayor Michael Smith. Two councillors pointed out that switching to daytime construction would result in trafﬁc bedlam, forcing thousands of cars onto Keith Road. Construction has already necessitated road closures, including shutting down the four-way stop in front of Shoppers Drug Mart for a few days. Council approved the project last July despite concerns about rush hour trafﬁc clogging Marine Drive. Paving work on Marine Drive, while dependent on weather, is set to start Nov. 29. The work is taking place in conjunction with a planned redevelopment of Park Royal South, including 20 new stores.
Approved Intersection on Marine Drive at Park Royal set to operate as of November 12 Thank you for your patience and understanding over the last five months while we have been completing construction. We are working hard to ensure that traffic patterns get back to normal in and around Park Royal, just in time to welcome you for Holiday shopping. The approved intersection on Marine Drive at Park Royal will be open and fully operational on Monday, November 12, along with a second intersection within the shopping centre between Home Depot and Extra Foods. Both intersections will provide greater safety for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers. These two intersections, along with improved pedestrian sidewalks, bus priority lanes, new bus shelters and cycling lanes, will enable the community to move around Park Royal and the vicinity in a more efficient and safe manner. Once the intersections go into full signalization, work to remove the west vehicle overpass will take place from November 13 – 21, between the hours of 8 PM and 6 AM. Appropriate traffic diversions and traffic management will be in place as needed and the work will occur overnight (Sunday to Thursday nights only). Due to the nature of the work, an elevated level of noise is expected; however, steps will be taken to advance the work schedule as quickly as possible. The pedestrian bridge, which connects pedestrians from the north side of Marine Drive to The Village at Park Royal, will be removed on Tuesday, November 20 between 11 PM and 6 AM. The scope of work involved will require a full closure of Marine Drive with traffic being diverted through Park Royal North and The Village at Park Royal. This Holiday season, our Park Smart program will help traffic flow in and around Park Royal. Some of Park Royal’s initiatives include: · Free Valet Parking Service: Weekends only until the full-time schedule starts in early December – Drop-off zone is located on Park Royal South, just west of The Keg · Park Smart Radio: Tune in to 92.5 FM to find one of our 4,400 parking spaces · Parking Lot Helpers: Watch out for individuals in branded bright yellow jackets, who will be more than happy to answer any questions you might have · Longer Shopping Hours: Starting December 1, so you can have more days available to shop late To learn more, visit parkroyalconnected.com.

Two men took an undisclosed amount of cash from the couple in the rear lane of the 1100-block of Fulton Avenue around 2:45 p.m., according to West Vancouver police. Once they had the loot, the suspects ﬂed to a vehicle with a female driver.
Luckily no one was hurt in the incident, police said. No descriptions of the suspects have been released. Police are warning residents to take extra caution if they are going to be handling large amounts of cash. Anyone with information is asked contact the WVPD at 604-925-7300.

Allied dead. But Wozniak says the city declined to hand over the bodies of Gardiner and Moncher for reburial on the grounds the Canadian pilots were buried as “our heroes.” Instead, the city placed the same headstones used in the Dieppe Canadian War Cemetery on the pilots’ graves in the city cemetery. Wozniak has been back to see the graves a couple of times since the end of the war — most recently as one of only a handful of surviving Canadian vets for the 70th anniversary of the raid this year. “I get more sentimental about it now than I did at the time. Back then, that’s just what was happening. They came and went, came and went. So and so didn’t come back and someone else would come in and take his place.” By May 31, 1943 on the completion of his ﬁrst tour, Wozniak’s logbook records that he had ﬂown a total of 604 hours and 45 minutes with the RCAF, of which 100 hours were operational sorties. He was entitled to a Canadian posting but wanted to stay in England with his new wife. “I dug in my heels and said, ‘No way. I’m not going. I’ve got a wife down south and a dog up north. After a short honeymoon, Wozniak was posted to an operational training unit as an instructor. He was ﬁnally posted back to Canada in February 1944, pulling strings to try and get his wife and dog on the same ship to Halifax, N.S. “They told me I could only take one back to Canada and I used to tell her that it took me a long time to make up my mind which one.” The trip back to Saskatoon with his new wife was diverted to Ottawa, where the couple was surprised with a limousine and a ride to the House of Commons where Wozniak was taken to dinner by Minister Jimmy Gardiner and introduced to Mackenzie King. As they were being driven back to the airport, Margot asked him, “Who is this Mackenzie King?” Wozniak ﬁnished the war supervising other instructors in Canada. He was awarded the DFC (Distinguished Flying Cross), which he says were handed out more freely as the end of the war came in sight. Was it worth it? “I would say so,” says Wozniak in almost a whisper. “I don’t know if the young appreciate that war was for them. They don’t realize the freedom they enjoy; they would not have had if things had toppled the other way. “But we were young and at the time, of course, it was exciting. It’s funny . . . you enjoy it.”

RICK Moore and son Jeff have won a Supreme Court of Canada case that concluded the North Vancouver school district discriminated against Jeff by cutting a program that could have helped him with his dyslexia.
made to all children in British Columbia.” Moore said he hardly slept the night before the decision was handed down. When it was ﬁnally released before 7 a.m., “I scrolled right down to the end (of the document) and I jumped right out of my chair,” he said. “There was some screaming and yelling.” Friday’s ruling marks the end of a long battle for the Moore family that began in the 1990s when, as a young child, Jeff struggled for several years while attending North Vancouver’s Braemar elementary. The school district had recently closed a program that offered intensive remediation to students with learning disabilities. Eventually, his parents pulled him out of the public system, hired tutors and re-mortgaged their house to pay for private schools that specialized in helping learning-disabled students. The school district will now have to pay the Moores the $100,000 they spent on private schools. Jeff, now 25, has long since graduated from high school, but his father said the case was never just about their family. “This case was always about the children who couldn’t beneﬁt from the education Jeff was able to get,” because they couldn’t afford it, said Moore. “There are thousands of families who have rested their hopes on

this case.” In its decision, the court noted there was a clear recognition by the school district that Jeff needed intensive remediation in order to function in the school system, but told the family it couldn’t provide that. The court said while the school district faced a budget crunch, “cuts were disproportionately made to special needs programs.” It noted the school district still found the cash to retain some discretionary programs — such as the Outdoor School
— while cutting the intensive special needs programs. The court ruled the province was not responsible for the decision. Margot Young, an associate professor at the University of British Columbia’s law faculty, said the decision sends an important message to government that basic services like education can’t be denied to people with disabilities. Susan Lambert, president of the B.C. Teachers Federation, also praised the Moores for persevering with their case.
“No family should have to ﬁght so hard to get their children the education they deserve,” Lambert said in a statement. Lambert said the situation for kids with special needs has only worsened since the time Jeff struggled in the system. No one from the school district was available to comment on the court decision. In a statement, spokeswoman Victoria Miles said school ofﬁcials are “disappointed” in the ruling but are still reviewing the decision with lawyers.

Concert founder spreads message of kindness From page 13 Canada, is an inspirational speaker and author, and has undertaken three fundraising bike trips across North America to further his message. For decades, Tully has worked to encourage community members to be more compassionate. “We need to get to the heart of our people. We need to bring up kids to be the best they can rather than to be better than — and to think what’s better for the higher good of all,” he says.
“We’re always trying to get that mark or that trophy to make us happy but it’s the journey that I’ve found that makes us happy and that we’re in it together and that we create community. . . . It really comes down to simple acts of kindness. It’s really about just being kind to each other.” Tully endeavours to empower people to be proud of who they are, think for themselves and from their heart rather than their head. “When we’re connected to our heart then we see that we all have the same feel-
ings, we all have the same fears, we all have the same needs and things like colour and age and style, those things all slip away and we just see each other’s beautiful hearts,” he says. Tully founded the World Kindness Concert in 2000 and over the years it has supported a variety of programs and organizations, including the Kindness Foundation of Canada, which it still supports today. Funds raised from this year’s edition will support the foundation’s Kindness Counts at School Toolkits
program, a resource for affecting positive change at school and home. Other programs being supported through this year’s concert include Kindness ROCKS, Roots of Empathy and Kindness Heals. The World Kindness Concert has grown to be a major production, thanks to the performers and volunteers, as well as Moon Coin Productions’ Jonas Falle and Jeanette O’Keeffe, who’ve served as producers for the last two years. Argyle secondary’s concert
choir, composed of 48 Grade 11 and 12 students, will be performing in the concert for the second time this year. Tully asked them to come on board after watching them sing at a fundraiser for South African education initiatives at Kay Meek
Centre last year. “The whole message that (Tully) has about creating a kinder world and the whole anti-bullying message has been something that has been so See Songs page 15
last a lifetime For over six years, Dr. Rahmany and the staff at Skyline Dental Centre have been committed to providing you with compassionate, professional dental care of the highest standards in a comfortable and relaxed environment. To ensure that your smile lasts a lifetime, here are ﬁve reasons to see your dentist.
1 2 3 4 5 TO HELP MAINTAIN GOOD PHYSICAL HEALTH
TO PREVENT GUM DISEASE, BAD BREATH AND TO KEEP YOUR TEETH
One of the best reasons to take care of your mouth is that people with periodontal or gum disease are almost twice as likely to suffer from coronary artery disease according to recent studies. Oral bacteria can enter the bloodstream, attaching to fatty plaques in the heart’s blood vessels, causing clots to form. Inﬂammation in the gums contributes to swelling in the arteries. Regular dental cleanings will likely reduce your risk of heart disease and strokes.
Gum disease is an infection in the gum tissues and bone that keep your teeth in place and is one of the leading causes of adult tooth loss. If diagnosed early, it can be treated and reversed. Studies show that 85% of people with persistent bad breath have a dental problem that is to blame. Good oral hygiene is essential in preventing bad breath. If treatment is not received, a more serious and advanced stage of gum disease may follow, leading to tooth loss. Regular dental cleanings and checkups are key factors in preventing this from happening.
TO DETECT DENTAL PROBLEMS EARLY
Dr. Rahmany and the hygienists at Skyline Dental Centre will be able to detect any early signs of problems with your teeth and gums. Early detection of cavities, broken ﬁllings and gum disease are easily treatable. If these problems go untreated, root canals, gum surgery and removal of teeth could become the only treatment options available. Your hygienist will help to ensure that you are maintaining your oral health and will put you back on the right path if you fall off track with your oral care.
TO PREVENT ORAL CANCER
TO HAVE A WHITE SMILE
According to Health Canada, about 4000 new cases will be diagnosed in Canada this year, and about 1500 people will die from oral cancer this year. When you have your dental cleaning, we use special equipment geared towards screening for oral cancer, which is highly curable if diagnosed early.
Your hygienist will remove most coffee, tobacco and tea stains, and will polish your teeth to a beautiful shine

Her students will perform African songs that relate to the concert’s theme. “The pieces we’re singing this year go through a story of a mother teaching her child to be respectful and to be responsible,” says Roberts. “It moves into a piece of music that sings about spreading the good news and then ends with a prayer-like African song that sings about doing unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Examples of other performers featured at Friday’s concert include Bill Sample, Michaela Slinger, Bobby Bruce, Michael Vincent, Leora Cashe, Adam Lucas, Sawagi Taiko, Andreas Schuld, Rene Worst and Cole Armour, a 13-year-old from Langley who was recently featured on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. Tully is also pleased that members of Amanda Todd’s family will be in attendance in a show of support for the concert’s message. “For people that are concerned about the bullying and the violence and everything, this is where they can come and really show that they care to make a differ-

LIVE TOUGH MUDDER
Trainer to tackle 24-hour obstacle course in N.J. IN the summer of 2011, I decided that I wanted to be in the best physical and mental shape of my life by my 40th birthday.
This meant I had exactly 16 months to reach my goal before the big one hit on Nov. 8. That fall, I came across an online advertisement for something called the Tough Mudder, an event planned for June 2012 in Whistler. What is the Tough Mudder? At the time, I didn’t know either. Turns out it’s a highlyintense obstacle course and run originally conceived by British Special Forces guys. You can start to imagine the details . . . On the Tough Mudder website, I discovered that the course would consist of a 12-mile run up and down the trails of Whistler (half the time running on snowy ground in almost freezing temperatures), including 20-24 obstacles like: The Arctic Enema, an open storage bin ﬁlled with ice and water that we would dive into and swim
through; The Electric Eel, seeing us crawl under barbed wire while trying to avoid getting shocked by any of the hundreds of electrically charged wires hanging inches above our backsides; and a frozen lake that organizers would chip the ice off in the morning so we could descend into it via an ice slide and ﬂounder our way out and up the embankment of snow on the opposite side. Obviously any sane person would stay as far away from this event as humanly possible. So of course I was on the phone immediately, and within hours had registered myself and a team of ﬁve friends (they’re still friends, honestly! At least I think so). We were tough, right? We liked mud — 30 or so years of playing soccer in Vancouver after all. We were ready to train and conquer what organizers describe as the toughest challenge on the planet. I think I can still hear the snorts of laughter from my brother and sister when I told them what I was planning for my 40th birthday challenge, especially after they watched the video on the Tough
Mudder website. But as any of you with older siblings can attest to — there is no sweeter feeling than proving them wrong. My Tough Mudder team lived right across the Lower Mainland, from Port Moody to Kitsilano to Lions Bay. Training together was as much of a challenge as the event itself. So instead of trying to schedule group training into busy lives, we trained separately and kept each other up to date about how it was going. We did manage to do the Grouse Grind together a few times. As a personal trainer on the North Shore I have the beneﬁt of training an absolutely fabulous group of clients. One of my clients, Munir Ali, is on the board of a new athletic clothing company called RYU — Respect Your Universe. He was another important source of inspiration as we geared up for race day. Now we just had to perform well enough to make our sponsors — and our wives — proud of us, and secure bragging rights for ourselves and our kids. No pressure. A starting gun and we were

You cheer your fellow “mudders” on whether they are on your team or not. I’ve never experienced such a degree of support from other athletes or spectators in all my racing life. It was intense. Dirty. Freezing. Hardcore. And, utterly amazing. In the end, our team dragged our wet, cold bodies across the ﬁnish line in two hours and 25 minutes. A fantastic result, placing us in the top ﬁve per cent of the day’s competitors. (Thank
you Grouse Grind!) We celebrated with showers, hot tubs, and a weary, but elated, night out in Whistler. Those bragging rights kicked in as we relived every crazy obstacle. The last comment made before heading to bed that night was, “Maybe we should sign up for the Seattle Tough Mudder.” So, a few weeks later on Sept. 29, there we were, heading back into the craziness. A few key things were different this time. First, we knew what to expect, and we approached our training differ-
ently. There are certain muscles that get used in an event such as this that don’t normally have the focus given to them that they should have, and our experience helped us train harder, train faster and train those small muscle groups that weren’t too happy up at Whistler. In Seattle, we had the extra excitement of having United States Marines as volunteers on the course. You wouldn’t believe how much faster you’ll complete each obstacle when See Team page 19

WHEN members of the North Shore Mountain Bike Association stood up last month at a Santa Fe, New Mexico conference to present on the success of their Trail Adoption Plan, the world was watching.

Maybe b Ch Christmas i . . . perhaps h ... means a little bit more!”
– The Grinch, How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Association program manager Mark Wood and president Mathew Bond were among the presenters at the 2012 International Mountain Bicycling Association World Summit, held in Santa Fe, Oct. 1013 that saw approximately 350 delegates attend. The duo presented at a session focused on planning for the future health of trail systems and trail communities. “We really feel that we’re at the point where being invited down to this world summit that we’re global leaders in creating a program of this magnitude and the amount of involvement from the community,” says Wood. “It was a good story that we shared and we’re very proud of the work that’s being done and we were excited to share it with everybody at the conference,” he adds. Thanks to signiﬁcant community involvement, the association’s Trail Adoption Plan program has experienced tremendous growth since its inception in 2011. TAP was launched in response to an aging trail network, compounded by the region’s extreme rainfall and high number of trail users (of all kinds), as a means of revitalizing the trails to improve them and make them sustainable for use by all long into the future. “Part of the equation of sustainability is doing maintenance on the trails and so that’s in essence what TAP is doing,” says Wood. The community-based initiative sees local, national and international businesses adopt a North Shore trail and commit to participating in trail work days over the course of a year. Adopters are led by a certiﬁed NSMBA trail builder, someone who is familiar with trail building techniques and who has attended the North Shore Trail Builder Academy, another educational incentive the association has created. The trail builder creates a work plan, assesses the trail and works with the volunteers to address environmental issues and erosion to retroﬁt the trail in a modern, sustainable way. In 2011 there were 11 adopters and in 2012, 23 groups decided to join the program. The number of trails was more than doubled from nine in 2011 to 19 in 2012. “There is huge potential with people

The 2012 adopters are still completing work on their respective trails with anticipated completion by December. “We’re just starting to enter talks with a number of new adopters so we expect the program to expand even further than what it already is,” says Wood. In addition to time spent working on their trail, adopters make a ﬁnancial commitment of $2,500, which covers all costs associated with the retroﬁt. Wood and Bond’s session at the Inter-
national Mountain Bicycling Association World Summit was well-attended and the response was “huge,” seeing them receive lots of “pats on the back” and interest expressed by groups wanting to launch their own version of TAP. Wood says the experience in Santa Fe proved eye-opening, referencing the expression, “you can’t see the forest because of the trees.” “Once you leave this region you really see how heralded our trail network is. The North Shore is famous. It’s one of the most famous spots on the planet for mountain biking. It started here long before many other places. There’s always a huge, huge interest when you travel abroad or when you talk to people outside of this region, there’s always a huge interest in people just having this understanding of the history here and how profound the history is.” The duo also appreciated the opportunity the conference provided to learn from other groups and walked away with ideas regarding more improved and better ways to build trails and community, how to share the

We quickly realized that we were in much better shape for this race and that the course was much ﬂatter than the nasty cold steep mountainside of Whistler. It was thrilling to pass groups that had started ahead of us. We hammered out all of the obstacles including the Berlin Walls (12-foot vertical walls), Everest (a slippery half pipe), Boa Constrictor (a corridor dug into the ground and covered with plywood making it pitch black), and of course the dreaded Electro Shock Therapy. But the last difference we noticed was in the Electro Shock Therapy obstacle. And, having taken a shock back at the Electric Eel in the beginning, I was already dreading it. Five hundred hanging wires, too close together to be able to sneak through them without getting hit. I saw a route that looked like I could go along at a slow pace and not get touched by the wires. Halfway through, it was going well. But that’s when a volunteer with an evil smile saw me. Clearly he didn’t like the

That’s right — I’ll be tackling mud, freezing lakes, and “obstacles on steroids” in the middle of the night. Last year was the inaugural World’s Toughest Mudder. Eight hundred qualiﬁers from around the
fact that I was outsmarting his obstacle, because next thing I knew he pointed his hose at me and ﬁred. A direct hit. Now I was surprised, soaking wet, and incredibly attractive to every live wire that was between me and the ﬁnish line. There was no other option but to grind my teeth and go for it. Zap. Zap. Zap. Zap. Zap. And about 10 more. These things honestly hurt like nothing you have ever felt before. At one point they knocked me down ﬂat, which just meant more of Kevin to hit. Finally, and desperately, I crawled my way across the ﬁnish line. What an ending! The exhilaration of ending quickly replaced the pain. And laughter helped, when my kids stopped millimetres short of a paternal bear-hug: “Ew, Daddy, you’re dirty.” Recovered and back in Van-

IN honour of Remembrance Day, Jacqueline Bernard reﬂects on her years growing up in Holland during the Second World War.
A West Vancouver woman remembers
A petite woman stood up at the recent North Shore Veterans’ Reunion, a microphone in one hand, a cane gripped ﬁrmly in the other. She was there to thank the veterans for the liberation of Holland, her homeland, during the Second World War. Jacqueline Ypma was born in Holland in 1926. The family lived in the country during the
Laura Anderson week and in Amsterdam on weekends, where their life was a round of museums, galleries and concerts; and, for Jacqueline, her Girl Guide troop. In May 1940, the Nazis invaded. Jacqueline was 13 years old. With the occupation, Jacqueline, her sister Liesbet, and

her parents and grandparents lived together in the country, sheltering a Jewish boy whose parents were hidden near by. (Most Dutch boys were also hidden. Otherwise, they would be shipped to Germany to ﬁght or work). As the war and the years dragged on, life under the Nazi boot was difﬁcult and dangerous. The basics of life disappeared. There was no elastic for clothing or rubber for tires. Food was scarce. On weekends, Jacqueline and her sister joined other girls, carrying valuables into the farmlands to trade for food, riding for miles on bicycles with tires made from lengths of rubber garden hose clamped around the metal rims of their wheels. “Holland was under

political occupation by the Nazis; maybe worse than military occupation,” Jacqueline remembers. “We were ordered to swear an oath of allegiance to Hitler before our Guide meetings and hockey games could continue. We refused. No more Girl Guides. No more hockey.” Cinema-goers had to be in their seats a half hour before the feature started to watch Nazi propaganda ﬁlms. No Dutch person went to the movies during the occupation. “Whatever we could do to annoy the Nazis, we did,” recalls Jacqueline. She wanted to do more. Against her parents’ strict injunction, she carried messages for the resistance, riding all over town on her hose-tired bike. One day, Jacqueline
was assigned to deliver a message to the head of the local resistance. At headquarters, she was ushered into an ofﬁce where, at his desk, was her father. “I handed the message to my father. He thanked me and did not say another word. Ice water was running through my veins and I remember nothing about getting home. I quit working for the resistance immediately,” she says. In September, 1944, the Allies liberated Holland as far as Arnhem. “We thought we would be next. But, I had the measles,” she says. “It was so unfair, how could I celebrate when I had the measles?” There was no freedom for the rest of Holland and no celebration. The Ypmas opened their home to six friends from Arnhem. Then came the winter of 1944-1945. “Cold, cold, we

were so cold and there was no food.” It was the time of the Hongerwinter, the Dutch Famine. Winter gave way to “the sweetest spring” as, on May 5, 1945, the Canadians liberated all of Holland. On that day, Jacqueline, 19 years old now, rode out into the country to thank the farmers who had supplied her family with food. Hurrying home to celebrate, Jacqueline grabbed onto the back of a truck but the garden hose tires on her bike gave way and she was ﬂung onto the street. Stiff and sore, Jacqueline could cheer but could not jitterbug, as she explained her accident to a group of French Canadian soldiers. The next morning, the soldiers arrived in a truck at Jacqueline’s home and unloaded eight sets of real rubber bicycle tires.
In 1948, Jacqueline came to Canada. “It was my way of thanking the Canadians. And, I thought I might meet a rich, handsome Canadian. Instead, I met a poor Dutchman.” Happily, Paul Tak was not so poor. They decided to make Canada their home, married and raised their children in West Vancouver. Jacqueline married hotelman and aviator Frank Bernard in 1970. During their 33 years together, Jacqueline and Frank travelled extensively, to their farm on Vancouver Island and to Mexico in their Aztec twin-engine airplane but West Vancouver, where they owned the landmark Park Royal Hotel, was home. “I will always be grateful to Canada. There is nowhere I would rather be.” Laura Anderson works with and for seniors on the North Shore. Contact her at 778-279-2275.

Tackling sleep troubles WE don’t know why we sleep, only that we must. A failure to sleep can result in irritability, loss of brain function, and in extreme cases, death.
After a lengthy assessment, Pond attempts to rule out other likely culprits such as asthma, thyroid issues, gastrointestinal problems, and restless leg syndrome.
The problem of long, sleepless nights are exacerbated by the lure of the Internet, according to West Vancouver psychotherapist Michael Pond.
“To identify it as a sleep disorder it needs to be pretty chronic. It has to be happening three times a week and have been going on for two, three months,” Pond says.
“We have so much more electronic and technical stimulation now than we used to have. People are up late at night with their face in a monitor,” he says. “It’s becoming quite a big problem.”
A lack of sustained, deep sleep can cause a myriad of problems, according to Pond.
Speaking from his Park Royal practice, Pond discusses the broad range of bloodshot-eyed patients who have sought his help for sleep disorders. “You can develop a sleep disorder at pretty well any age. I’ve seen children over the years, young children, even preschoolers, that have sleep disturbance,” he says. “Sleep disturbance doesn’t discriminate by age.” Recurring nightmares, night terrors, and a perpetual inability to drift off can all point to a sleep disorder, according to Pond. In strictly medical cases, Pond says insomnia is frequently a side effect of antidepressants, cold and ﬂu medicine, and blood pressure medicine. However, many of the psychotherapist’s patients are grappling with emotional or psychological problems. “By the time they get to me they’ve talked to their doctor about it and the doctor has generally ruled out any of those more medical issues,” he says.
“Their functioning just deteriorates at work and at home and relationships deteriorate. It starts to have a real snowball effect,” Pond says. In many cases, sleep sufferers lie in bed ruminating on the day’s stresses, often exaggerating problems into catastrophes, according to Pond. “It’s not the time to get geared up and start working on your bookkeeping or looking at your ﬁnancial situation and people tend to do that because it’s quiet and they’re alone.” Yoga, meditation, and abdominal breathing techniques can all help with relaxation and sleep, according to Pond. “What you’re doing is basically harnessing your body’s relaxation response,” he says. Pond also puts an emphasis on establishing a strict association with the bed and sleep. “The bedroom’s only for sleeping and sex. Don’t read so much in there, don’t watch TV, don’t use your computer in bed, so you start to condition the mind, the brain, that my bedroom and my bed is to sleep.” JEREMY SHEPHERD

Tired? Aching muscles? Let us help you feel better
If you have recurring health issues and traditional medicine doesn’t seem to be able to help, Bellevue Natural Health Clinic at 1467 Bellevue in West Vancouver may be just what you’ve been looking for.

Jumpstart your diet
Lindsay Jang offers tips to keep you moving Tired of feeling tired? Unable to get past that 3 p.m. slump? Sometimes we can chock this up to a late night, but often there’s a culprit we don’t consider: our diet.
Whether your goal is to run a marathon, have the energy to chase your kids around or simply have the concentration and pep to make it through the workday, the following are a few tips to keep you revved up and ready to go.
Don’t skip meals
Although skipping meals may seem like a good way to shave off extra calories, eating regular meals is the ﬁrst step to sustaining energy throughout the day. When we go too long without eating, our blood sugars go out of whack. This often leads to increased cravings for sugary foods or overeating at the next meal, which leaves us lethargic and often leads to weight gain as well.
Think about a drink
Dehydration can cause all sorts of unpleasant symptoms including fatigue, lack of concentration, and even hunger. If you’ve hit a 3 p.m. slump and are tempted to go for that extra java or the donuts in the staff room, consider how much water you’ve had during the day. To help you remember,
carry a water bottle with you or keep a reﬁllable cup on your desk
Don’t be afraid of carbs
Carbs have gotten a bad rep, but the truth is, they are our body’s main source of fuel and our brain’s only source of fuel. Don’t forget: not all carbs are created equal. Complex carbs like beans and lentils, starchy vegetables, high-ﬁbre cereals, and grains like quinoa are slow digesting thanks to their ﬁbre content. Fibre slows the rise in blood sugar levels after we eat, which gives us a feeling of satiety and prevents the crash that simple sugars like pop and sweets can create.
Power up with protein
Protein doesn’t provide that same burst of fuel as complex carbs do, but it does provide a better mile per gallon. Protein slows digestion, which keeps us feeling full longer after meals and provides us with sustained energy throughout the day. Pump up your protein by including a lean source like ﬁsh, chicken, or tofu with all of your meals. Add some nuts or a small portion of cheese to your midafternoon snack to keep your hands out of the cookie jar while getting dinner ready.
Iron out the wrinkles
If you’re experiencing unusual fatigue or have a chronic condition like celiac disease, which interferes with nutrient absorption, low iron levels might be to blame. Increase your iron intake by having oatmeal for breakfast, adding a spinach salad to your dinner or enjoying a beef and broccoli stir-fry. One thing to consider is that the iron in plant foods is harder to absorb than the type found in animal foods. If you are vegetarian or take an iron supplement, pair iron with vitamin C to aid absorption. This can be done by adding some strawberries to your oatmeal or a red pepper to your spinach salad.
Don’t be afraid to snack
Our bodies function best when fueled every three to four hours. Combine protein and a high-ﬁbre carbohydrate for staying power. Here are a few examples of snacks that will give you just the boost you need: • An apple and single portion of cheese • A banana and one tablespoon of your favourite nut butter • High-ﬁbre crackers with hummus • Greek yogurt sprinkled with nuts or berries Lindsay Jang is a registered dietitian practicing on the North Shore.

Because you want the very best life for your Mom or Dad. “Home Care Assistance was the only option my mom and I could live with”
Every Tuesday, a team of ﬁve personal shoppers call program participants to help them assemble their shopping lists. Then they hit the store to shop and a delivery service brings the food to customers’ homes that afternoon. “There’s a big need in the community,” says personal shopper Barb McGuinness. “A lot of people don’t realize the number of seniors or handicapped people that need help.” The program provides a human touch. “I’ve worked with people who are on very, very limited money every week,” says McGuinness. “Sometimes they’ll say, I’ve got $40 to spend and I can’t go over that . . . I’ll phone back and say, chicken is on sale today, can you have that instead of something else so that we can make it work with your money?” While most grocery stores offer home delivery, McGuinness says the personal shopper program meets the needs of people who need extra help. “A lot of them are not in the position where they can come in to the store and pick the food and then have it delivered,” says McGuinness. “Some of our clients are visually impaired to the point where they have problems going around and picking the food.” Many clients rely on some prepared meals from the frozen food section, but with the help of the shoppers, they get a selection of fresh fruit and vegetables in their order. McGuinness and four other personal shoppers have been running the program for more than 10 years. The service started at the Safeway at 15th Street and Marine Drive in West Vancouver. But when that store closed this July, the shopping team went looking for a new home. They found it at the Save-On-Foods. Store manager Tony Nikic gave the group a back ofﬁce space (the shoppers are also paid a modest fee).

Home shopper Linda Gray shops for those who can’t at Save-on-Foods on Marine drive.
Now the team is trying to get the word out that they’re back in business. Before the move, McGuinness says, they used to ﬁll 35-40 orders per week. Now they ﬁll about six orders, and only need two or three personal shoppers on duty. But through word of mouth, the number of clients is growing, and the full team of ﬁve shoppers is ready to spring into action when needed. Cherry says the personal shoppers are “angels in disguise.” The service also provides peace of mind for her family, who live in South Surrey and visit often but aren’t able to check in on her every day. “If they don’t have family or neighbours who can do things for them, some of them have quite a bit of a problem,” says McGuinness. “Some of them have said to us, ‘If you weren’t there, what would we do?’” JEN ST.

A whirlwind tour of Chile over just a few days has yielded plenty: from the continuing emergence of newer regions, including Bio Bio and San Antonio, to the maturing of a handful of biodynamic producers, such as Emiliana, under the leadership of Alvaro Espinoza. In short, Emiliana has become a force to be reckoned with in the sometimes precarious arena of organic and biodynamic wine making. Arguably the most passionate and most experienced of Chile’s biodynamic winemakers, Espinoza has been at the helm of the Chilean biodynamic movement, which he helped kickstart more than a decade ago when he joined the winery to implement its organic program. Interestingly, the decision to embrace a comprehensive organicbiodynamic program had little to do with marketing per se, but was more about protecting workers by doing
away with pesticides and other unhealthy aspects of conventional farming. Espinoza already had his own biodynamic vineyards and was in an ideal position to put his vision into action. Today the much-travelled winemaker oversees more than 1,000 producing hectares of certiﬁed biodynamic vineyards in four valleys. This week I was lucky enough to visit Emiliana’s Colchagua vineyard (more accurately described as a fullﬂedged biodynamic farm), a bucolic backwater nestled in the Apalta foothills. Walking between the rows of some of the healthiest looking vines I’ve seen in years, it’s interesting to note the differences here, where mechanized equipment such as tractors are used minimally, perhaps twice annually, and most of the weeding between rows is done by horse and plough. Birdlife is in abundance, kept in check by local raptors. But when burritos (climbing bugs that attack the vines) become a problem, they are efﬁciently despatched by a platoon of hungry chickens that travel in style as required in thatched mobile coops from their home base. Resident llamas protect the chickens from the local fox population and apparently do their job well. The farm also includes an organic vegetable garden, where each worker has a 60square-metre bed in which to grow whatever produce they choose. Although the overall size of the property is more than 700 hectares, only about a quarter is actually under vine, bounded by oak forest that reaches up to the foothills, with wide swaths of
land left in a natural state as wildlife corridors. Tasting through the range I was struck by the affordability of these wines, which consistently deliver even aside from their organic added appeal of being certiﬁed organic. Adobe Chardonnay 2012 (Casablanca) The workhorse of the range, this lively drop sports tropical and citrus notes with bright fruit ﬂavours and a solid mouthfeel before a lingering close. The 2012 seems decidedly fresher than the previous vintage. Good value at BCLS $14.99. Adobe 2011 Syrah (Rapel) Black fruit, cherry and some spice on the nose followed by a plush, mouthﬁlling palate with easy tannins and fantastic fruit with great length and spice before a plush and persistent close. $14.99 Emiliana Novas Pinot Noir
2011 (Casablanca) Approachable, up-front new world style with just a touch of the old, with cherry and strawberry and raspberry notes underpinned by a touch of earthy savoury-ness and food-friendly acidity. $18-$20 Emiliana Organic Coyam 2010 The ﬂagship blend (38 per cent Syrah, 27 per cent Carmenere, 21 per cent Merlot, 12 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon, 1 per cent Mourvedre, 1 per cent Petit Verdot) delivers red fruit, violets and spice up front, before luscious cassis and plummy notes, with complex spices and ﬁrm tannins wrapped in balanced acidity. I was lucky enough to be able to taste the 2001 beside this wine, which deserves to be cellared. Put it away for even ﬁve years and it will reward you well. BCLS $29.99

Mayan cultural tour explores the Yucatan ISLAND Expeditions is offering travelers a chance to journey through little-known regions of the Yucatan with their new Costa Maya Explorer trip — a seven-night lodge-to-lodge sea kayak and Mayan cultural adventure.
The B.C.-based adventure tour company will launch the new Costa Maya package on Feb. 17, 2013. A dynamic, multi-sport itinerary takes trip participants to unexplored beaches and offthe-beaten path towns and attractions. Activities include sea kayaking, kayak surﬁng, reef and cenotes cave snorkeling, plus visits to remote Mayan archaeological sites. The Costa Maya itinerary includes four nights in beachfront cabanas at Balamku, an ecological boutique lodge just south of Mahahual in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. The exclusive ecolodge operates completely off the grid, using solar power and capturing and storing rainwater. After kayaking and snorkeling on the Caribbean, the trip then heads out to Laguna Bacalar, the Lagoon of Seven Colors’ — a freshwater lagoon known for its shades of turquoise blue. For more information on the Costa Maya Explorer visit islandexpeditions.com.
THE Costa Maya Explorer visits ancient archaeological sites in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula.
CENOTES (surface connections to subterranean water sources) were sometimes used by the ancient Maya for sacriﬁcial offerings. The term derives from a word used by the lowland Yucatec Maya “ts’onot.”

Chicxulub Crater Although cenotes are found widely throughout much of the Yucatan Peninsula, a higher density circular alignment of cenotes overlies the measured rim of the Chicxulub Crater. This crater structure, identiﬁed from the alignment of cenotes, but also subsequently mapped using geophysical methods (including gravity mapping) and also drilled into with core recovery, has been dated to the boundary between the Cretaceous and Paleogene periods, 65 million years ago. This meteorite impact at the Cretaceous–Paleogene boundary is therefore associated with the mass extinction of the dinosaurs, and is also known as the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event. Sacriﬁcial sites The Yucatan Peninsula has almost no rivers and only a few lakes, and those are often marshy. The widely distributed cenotes are the only perennial source of potable quality water and have long been the principal sources of water in much of the Yucatan Peninsula. Major Maya settlements required access to adequate water supplies, and therefore cities, including the famous Chichen Itza, were built around these natural wells. Some cenotes like the Sacred Cenote in Chichen Itza played an important role in Maya rites. Believing that these pools were gateways to the afterlife, the Maya sometimes threw valuable items into them. The discovery of golden sacriﬁcial artifacts in some cenotes led to the archaeological exploration of most cenotes in the ﬁrst part of the 20th century. Edward Herbert Thompson, an American diplomat who had bought the Chichen Itza site, began dredging the Sacred Cenote there in 1904. He discovered human skeletons and sacriﬁcial objects conﬁrming a local legend, the Cult of the Cenote, involving human sacriﬁce to the rain god Chaac by ritual casting of victims and objects into the cenote. The remains of this cultural heritage have a great historical and scientiﬁc value. They are protected by the UNESCO Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage. — Wikipedia

PETS PETS FOR ADOPTION
Make an effort, not excuses
IT never ceases to amaze me the excuses some dog owners will come up with when either they can’t or won’t control their dog.
I then wonder: if they actually heard what was coming out of their mouths, before they actually said Canine Connection it, would they still say it, Joan Klucha knowing how absurd it sounds? Case in point: I was walking my dogs along the dyke trail in Fort Langley. If you have ever been there, it is a really nice walk, with wide open spaces all around allowing you to see who is coming and going far in advance. I was walking my dogs on-leash and noticed a woman approaching in the distance. She was a mere dot on the horizon and her dog but a wee speck. As we got closer to one another I realized she was not going to place her dog on-leash out of courtesy and well, the bylaws. So I yelled out — at the top of my lungs mind you because she was still quite far away — “My black dog is not friendly with unfamiliar small dogs, can you call your dog please?” Well, that seemed to trigger her dog to run towards me and then the excuses started. “I didn’t see you. You didn’t give me enough time. She won’t come back now because she is too far away and your warning was not soon enough. You should have warned me sooner. She’s friendly and good with other dogs. ” All the while she sauntered along the trail, not once calling her dog or making any effort to try to get her dog but ﬁnding enough energy and breath to shout excuses at me. How is it that it is my responsibility to manage not only my dogs, but other people’s dogs as well? Not only is
Laser Surgery Available
it irresponsible of dog owners to make excuses instead of taking action but it is inconsiderate and unfair. I know my dogs would not hurt another dog, but Zumi sure does put on a good show that would make another dog owner think otherwise. I’m sure that I am not the only person who comes across excuse-making dog owners. So I know that there are others who are as frustrated as I am. For the most part these interactions between the excuse-making dog owner and the action-taking dog owner are conﬂict free. But there may be a day when the excuse-maker may not be so lucky and a conﬂict could arise. The reasons for conﬂict are varied. Like Zumi, one dog may not be good with other unfamiliar dogs. Or it could be a DINOS — a Dog In Need Of Space. A dog may be doing some training and having another dog rush at them could interfere with the training efforts. Sometimes dogs just don’t get along, like people. But the reality of it all is that there really doesn’t need to be a reason for people to take full responsibility for their dogs at all times. Regardless of whether the trail is an on or off-leash trail, it should be common, courteous behaviour to call and leash your dog on the approach of another person, with or without a dog. If you are an excuse-maker instead of an action taker, acknowledge and accept the fact that you have no control over your dog and keep it leashed until you are able to work with a qualiﬁed trainer who will show you how to control your dog. So many problems could be avoided if people would just think about the consequences of their actions, or in this case, inaction. Please, make an effort people, not an excuse.

Sentinel runner wins B.C. x-country ﬁnal Andy Prest email@example.com
SENTINEL secondary’s cross-country running team scored two podium ﬁnishes — one an emphatic blaze of glory and the other a bit of delayed gratiﬁcation — at the provincial championships held last weekend in Prince George.
and it was her monster spikes — from the front row and back — that found the ﬂoor whenever Argyle needed a point. “Setters know that they can give her the ball and they trust her to put it away,” said Di Bono. “She’s the kind of player that coaches love to have because she is coachable. You ask her to jump, she asks you how high. She’s that clutch player that you give her the ball and she’ll put it away.” The Pipers also got standout performances from Forrest on the right side, middle blocker Sarah Haysom, outside hitter Brianna Burton and setters Gabby Prosperi-Porta and Elaine Sadler. Di Bono also highlighted her team’s defence, a former weak point that has become a strength, as a major key to the win. “Defence wins games and that’s what we were focusing on,” she said. “We picked up a few balls that maybe earlier in the season we wouldn’t have and we were able to put them away.” And how does it feel to topple the mighty Royals who have long ruled over the North Shore? “It’s deﬁnitely nice,” said Di Bono with a little laugh. “(But) we dedicated this game to our seniors — we’ve got six
Grade 10 runner Nicole Hutchinson provided the ﬁreworks, warming up the icy course with a wire-to-wire win to become the third ever North Shore girl to claim a provincial cross-country title. With 13-millimetre spikes in her shoes to tackle the snowy, two-lap course that included a monster hill climb, Hutchinson raced out to a big early lead. When her coaches caught sight of her at the end of lap 1 she was nearly 100metres in front. By the time she reappeared after lap 2 the gap was down to about 30 metres but Hutchinson was still going strong. The ﬁnal sprint saw Hutchinson ﬁnish the 4.3kilometre course in a time of 17:44, eight seconds ahead of Miryam Bassett of Nanaimo District secondary. Hutchinson could barely stand after she crossed the line, said Sentinel head coach Hugh Wilson. “She really just left it all out there — she barely made it across the line but she did and it was a great victory,” he said. “It took around 40 minutes to get her up and about but we ﬁnally got some chicken soup into her and she felt great again.” Wilson said that before the race the team expected Hutchinson to contend for a medal but secretly he believed

Argyle ends Royal reign Andy Prest firstname.lastname@example.org
THE Argyle Pipers senior girls volleyball team did something Thursday night no team has done since 2006 — beat the Handsworth Royals in the North Shore championship ﬁnal. Argyle was the class of the North Shore league this year, ﬁnishing in ﬁrst place to earn the right to host the playoff tournament. On Thursday night the Pipers were hoping to put an exclamation point on their season but they knew that the Royals would not give up the crown quietly. In the ﬁrst set Argyle showed their strength in building a small lead and eventually went up 24-21 to sit within a point of an important early advantage. It was at this point, however, that the Royals started to show just why they’ve won ﬁve league titles in a row. Ripping off four straight points, Handsworth vaulted ahead to earn a set point of their own. But then, the Royal reign ended. Argyle fought off a total of three set points with timely hitting from Grade 10 star Kendra Finch and eventually claimed a 29-27 win. From there

the result seemed almost inevitable. The Pipers blasted eight straight points to start the second set and went on to win easily. The third set was closer but the result the same with co-captain Jayme Forrest blasting a kill on match point to give the Pipers a 2927, 25-14, 25-21 win and their ﬁrst North Shore title since back-to-back wins in 199697. After the match Argyle head coach Alisha Di Bono reﬂected on the way her team wavered but ultimately prevailed in the crucial ﬁrst set. “It was huge,” she said. “We needed to start off with the ﬁrst one. I think the nerves got to us . . . I think there was a lot of pressure. Throughout the season we’ve learned to battle and I think those lessons came into play in the ﬁrst set.” Finch was a powerful presence throughout the match. It was on her powerful jump serve that the Pipers notched their eight-point run to start the second set

she could run away with gold. She ﬁnished 19th as a Grade 8 runner and sixth last year. “She is an extremely tough runner,” he said. “We’ve seen that from the ﬁrst workout she did with us three years ago, doing long intervals down at Ambleside. She just would not be beaten.” Sentinel’s other medal came with a bit of confusion. At the award ceremony the girls’ team was announced as the seventh-place ﬁnisher. A parent, however, checked the results online and noticed that one of the school’s runners had not been counted. Organizers checked race photos and video, veriﬁed the mistake and bumped the Spartans all the way up to third place. Team totals come from a school’s top ﬁve racers and along with Hutchinson the Spartans had
Janna Maclean ﬁnish 43rd, Michelle Cheung 44th, Kelsey Shellard 56th and Mia Dommann 114th. “I was really proud of the whole team,” said Wilson. “They’re a young team — all the girls were Grade 8, 9 and 10 with one Grade 12 — and I would say they far exceeded expectations. . . . They all made it possible. Nicole had a great individual victory but without her, without every one of those girls, we wouldn’t have got third place.” Handsworth’sJesseHootenwasthetopNorth Shore ﬁnisher in the boys’ race, just missing the medals in fourth place.

of them — and I’m glad they all got to see the court at some point. It’s nice to know that we’ve stripped Handsworth of their consecutive titles but I’m more happy and proud that we were able to give our seniors a North Shore championship in their last year.” Next up on the calendar are the AAAA Lower Mainland playoffs starting Nov. 17. Argyle will likely come in as the No. 2 seed behind Richmond’s McMath. Di Bono is hoping her Pipers can ride their recent success to a berth in the provincial championships and a potential place in the medal round. “I think we’re getting to the right point in our peakness heading to these big tournaments. We went through some growing pains throughout the season and we’re deﬁnitely gelling and coming together and playing beautiful volleyball.” St. Thomas Aquinas topped West Vancouver secondary in the North Shore premier league bronze medal match Wednesday night prior to the gold ﬁnal.

DEANS, James Brodie September 03, 1922 - November 05, 2012 James Brodie Deans of West Vancouver peacefully passed away at home on November 5th, 2012. Brodie was born in Liverpool, England on September 3rd, 1922, the only child of James Brodie Deans and Mary Alice Deans (nee Roberts). Brodie grew up in Kitsilano, where he spent much of his time sailing out of the Kitsilano Yacht Club. At the age of twenty, he made a life changing decision. He joined the Canadian Army and went overseas to "do his part." The years that followed were, in his words, "the best and the worst days of my life." Brodie’s many years of wartime service took him to the United Kingdom, the central Mediterranean area and continental Europe. The best being reflected in the lifelong friendships that were made, and in meeting his wife of sixty-five years, Veronica (Vera) Hendrika Catherina Deans (nee van Eenennaam), during the liberation of The Netherlands. Sadly, Vera predeceased Brodie on August 20th, 2011. Upon conclusion of the war, Brodie and Vera resettled in Canada with the expectation that the worst was behind them. Shortly thereafter, they were faced with another hardship, their first born son passed away within a few days of his birth. Never surrendering to self pity, Brodie and Vera were wonderful parents to their two sons who followed, Gary Ramon Deans and Robert Brodie Deans. Affected by his own service and a desire to serve his fellow veterans, Brodie went to work for the Department of Veterans Affairs as a Veteran Welfare Officer. It was during those twenty-two years that Brodie assisted those who served their country and now needed help. He performed his job with understanding, compassion and of course, a sense of humour. Brodie and Vera loved their home in Lions Bay where they spent over thirty years as "villagers." The squirrels, birds and occasional lost hiker are indebted to Brodie for his generosity. Brodie will always be remembered for his great sense of humour, his compassion for his fellow man, his sense of justice, service, fairness, and his love for animals. He inspired these values in all of his family and friends. In addition to Gary and Rob, Brodie is survived by four grandchildren, Shaun, Melanie, Dylan and Ryder and three great-grandchildren, Samantha, Graeme and Taylor as well as his daughter-in-law Kathleen (Gary) and granddaughter-in-law, Johanna (Shaun). Special thanks are owed to his palliative care team and particularly his caregivers, Jean and Christina who cared for him as their own "Papa". In keeping with his modesty, Brodie requested that there be no service. Therefore, his family requests that you celebrate his life and the service of all veterans at a ceremony this Remembrance Day. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to support veteran programmes with the Legion Foundation. Donations may be made at a local Legion Branch or on-line at http://www.legionbcyukon.ca/content/legionfoundation-donation-page

JONES, Digby David Goldsmith
Mar.15, 1927 - Nov. 2, 2012 Digby was one of a kind. A gentleman, at the heart of our lives, his sense of humour, knowledge, patience and Christian faith enriched all those who knew him.

Digby’s family settled in North Vancouver in 1917. As a boy Digby explored the trails of North Vancouver and from his home on Keith Road hiked and skied up Grouse Mtn, where he served as ski patrol until 1955. As a young man Digby was a member of the Royal Canadian Navy Sea Cadets. He attended North Shore College and in later years met annually with the ‘Old Boys’. Digby enjoyed his days at Diamond Head Chalet in Garibaldi Park where he guided visitors to the lodge. I n 1 9 51 Di g b y w a s a n apprentice electrician at Burrard Drydock. He worked in Prince George with Electric Power and Equipment and in Vancouver with Westinghouse, later becoming a partner in Winford Insulations. Digby always had a special Place in his heart for Gabriola Island never forgetting the many friends he had there since childhood.

SCOTT, Joanna Esther Margaret June 7, 1919 - Nov. 2, 2012 Joanna’s marvelous life was long, rich and full. She had enormous strength of character, was fiercely independent, and she wanted things done properly. She was fair, honest and kind to the core. She possessed a rare quality of humility and had deep compassion. She always wanted to help. She had a keen interest in people from all walks of life, be it her longtime garden assistant who resided in the Downtown East Side, the people who sat with her to have their hands massaged at Keep Well every week, or the many strangers who extended their hospitality to her on her extensive world travels. She wanted to know them all and forged enduring relationships with many, even those who just briefly crossed her path. Her boundless energy fueled numerous passions in life, both grand and simple. She loved her teaching career and dedicated herself to it without compromise. Her garden was her constant creation, becoming ever more spectacular each year. She enjoyed bridge with the girls for an astonishing 42 years. To Joanna a bargain was a treasure, and for decades the Saturday morning garage sales provided her with immense pleasure. The importance of community was something she understood well, and she was always meaningfully engaged in hers, especially through her long association with the West Van Seniors’ Centre, the Memorial library where she took care of the children’s books for 17 years and as a vibrant member of her church. This fine, gracious lady was our beloved mother, grandmother, sister, aunty, cousin, and sisterin-law. She was our dear friend, fond acquaintance and good neighbour. We are bereft in her absence for now, but life was her delight, and when our sadness eases it is the memory of her joyful living that will remain. In lieu of flowers we invite you to donate to either of two groups Joanna supported: Avaaz www.avaaz.org or Union Gospel Mission. A Memorial Service and Reception will be held November 17th at 2 p.m. at St. Stephen’s Anglican Church, 885 – 22nd St. West Vancouver.

WILSON, William (Bill) Oct 18, 2012 - Nov 01, 2012 In May of this year Bill and Kay, or "Tup", (nee Dodd) travelled to San Sebastian and Barcelona to celebrate 60 years of marriage. They were joined on their grand pintxos tour by daughter Dr Christine Wilson, her husband Dr. Neil Friedenberg, and son Paul, with his wife Renate Bublick. Bill is also survived by brother Dick of Fredericton and Heuchert of sister Pat Minnedosa. He was predeceased by sisters Emily, Betty and Irene, and brothers Harry and, most recently, Ted. Bill was born in East Kildonan, Manitoba in 1929, two years after his parents arrived from Dublin. He was the fourth of eight children and always remained one of the Wilson boys from EK. Bill worked for Dominion Bridge for 25 years, starting as a draughtsman in Winnipeg and eventually moving to Regina, where he was Production Manager. In 1975, Tup and Bill moved to the North Shore and for the rest of his life Bill was a fixture on the seawall from Ambleside to Dundarave and Peppi’s , the restaurant he adored and longed for so much after its’ closing. For many years this was Bill’s running route, as he ran marathons into his seventies. But he spent even more time just walking the seawall or up the Capilano River to the Cleveland Dam. Bill was famous for his "fabulous legs". He wore shorts at every opportunity and his legs were admired everywhere he went, including the Great Wall of China in 2007, where he had the ladies tittering in delight. The family would like to thank the staff at Lions Gate Hospital ICU for their care and professionalism. In lieu of flowers, please make a contribution in honour of Bill to the Nature Conservancy or the charity of your choice. An event to salute Bill’s life will be held at a future date.

THORSEN, Roar Roar Thorsen passed away peacefully at the age of 82 on October 25th, 2012 at Evergreen House in North Vancouver. Before his retirement, Roar had a rich career in the forest industry as a mechanical engineer and consultant in Scandinavia and Canada. An artist since childhood, Roar’s passion was in cartooning. He was also known for his strong personality and his ability to find joy in any situation. He is lovingly remembered by his children, Anders Thorsen (Charmaine Crooks), Katarina Thorsen, Fredrik Thorsen (Cher Hanusiak), his grandchildren (Anna Thorsen, Julian Bowers, Henrik Thorsen), his extended family, his friends and his beloved staff at Evergreen House. Roar was predeceased by his wife, Karin Thorsen. A memorial will be held to coincide with the release of the book, “Drawn Together”, which celebrates his life and art. (Date and location to be announced.) In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Heart & Stroke Foundation. For those wishing to share a memory of Roar, please visit www.hollyburnfunerals.com

Cancer June 21-July 22: The accent lies on romance, creative urges, beauty, charming children and speculative luck (all highlighted Monday/ Tuesday). But don’t start anything new in any zone. An old romance or former creative project might return – if so, judge it on its own merits. Why was it abandoned in the ﬁrst place? Sunday’s for home, kids – all’s ﬁne. Midweek brings chores, health matters (both lightly) – charge ahead in practical matters, dispose of piles of routine tasks. Relationships excite, opportunities surge, and cobwebs dissolve Friday/ Saturday. True love’s possible: but no one new. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Start nothing new before Nov. 26 – especially in areas of domesticity, real estate, children, security, pension programs, gardening and nutrition. (These are highlighted Monday/Tuesday, but pick up and march ahead with old, former projects – e.g., those stones you haven’t moved in the garden – or ongoing ones. Plant nothing, buy nothing signiﬁcant.) Wednesday/Thursday bring romantic notions, earthly beauty and pleasure. (But don’t ask someone new for a date.) Chores, health concerns and dependents ﬁll Friday/Saturday. If a former realty bargain resurfaces, hook it. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Start nothing new (and buy nothing signiﬁcant) before Nov. 26, especially in communications, travel, reports, paperwork, applications, distribution. In these, mistakes and delays can occur. An application submitted now will tend to be buried and forgotten by the recipient. Have a Plan B, re-check wallet, credit cards, supplies, itinerary, etc. Make a list before doing errands. Sunday favours you in money areas. Paperwork, travel and communications are highlighted Monday/Tuesday. Stick close to home, security position midweek. Romance, pleasure, “winning” Friday/Saturday!

Tim Stephens' Astral Reﬂections Aries March 21 - April 19: A link evolves. The accent remains on secrets, research, sexual urges, investments, debt and partnership money, hidden meanings and health diagnoses, especially Monday/ Tuesday. Changes, commitments or break-offs you make will have magniﬁed consequences down the road. This is the month on which your life pivots. That said, don’t start anything new before Nov. 26. Deal with old or ongoing sexual, ﬁnancial and similar situations. (A former sexy one might return.) Relationships reach agreement Sunday. A mellow, loving mood ﬂows in Wednesday/Thursday. Be ambitious late week. Taurus April 20-May 20: Remember, start nothing before Nov. 26: stick with former or ongoing people, projects. That includes relationships, contracts, negotiations, relocation, dealings with the public and advertising – and agent contacts. In the meantime, a former relationship, relocation opportunity, negotiation, etc., might reappear (especially Monday/Tuesday). Trust your instincts on this – if this link was good “back then,” good again: if bad, bad again. Mysteries, opportunities and a sexy person ﬁll midweek. Love of a gentle kind ﬂows over you Friday/Saturday. Work, co-workers are pleasant. Gemini May 21-June 20: Start nothing new before Nov. 26 – especially in work, machinery, with dependents and health. DO NOT buy machinery. A former (incomplete) chore – or work role – might return (all month, but particularly Monday/Tuesday). Perhaps a repair must be redone. A former co-worker or lover might return – the lover’s not beneﬁcial. Sunday’s romantic: express your feelings. Relationships, opportunities and fresh horizons ﬁll Wednesday/ Thursday – but only leap if these are “old new” not brand new. Sexy urges and “ﬁnancial signiﬁcance” arrive Friday/Saturday – research, dig deep.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Money remains the top topic. Make as much as you can – without, however, starting new projects nor seeking new clients. (Clients gained before late November would become a real headache in future – not their fault!) Start nothing new or signiﬁcant before Nov. 26. Former money sources (or old bills you owe) are likely to resurface. Your talents shine Sunday. Money, earning, selling and sensual attractions highlight Monday/Tuesday. Do errands, travel, or communicate midweek – but watch mistakes; make a list. Head for home Friday/ Saturday: relax, repair home and relations. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Your energy, charisma and optimism remain high; others are attracted. But “effective” might be the missing quality, as you will ﬁnd it hard to advance ongoing ventures, and even harder to successfully start new ones. Stick to the old and ongoing until Nov. 26. A former (abandoned) ﬁnancial, investigative, sexual or health matter might return: if this was good then, it is now; if bad, bad now. Rest, contemplate Sunday. You impress others Monday/Tuesday. Chase money (not new money ventures) Wednesday/Thursday. Buy nothing important. Late week is busy but not hugely important. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Continue to rest, retreat, contemplate – be spiritual, charitable. Start nothing new before Nov. 26. Instead, protect ongoing projects from mistakes, missed appointments, etc. A former acquaintance might reappear: this person might offer you some shelter or solace, but otherwise is not a good one for you to hang any hopes on, especially love hopes. Sunday’s for optimism and entertainment. Avoid competition Monday/Tuesday. Your energy and charisma return somewhat midweek – get things done! (But don’t start the new.) Chase money Friday/Saturday. Buy nothing important.

Nov. 11 - 17, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Start nothing new before Nov. 26. Instead, stay with ongoing projects, ventures and relationships, or welcome those that return from the past. A former ﬁne group of friends, a light, playful lover, or a past venture (it always made you feel hopeful) might reappear. Judge the former venture on its own merits. DON’T indulge in planning sessions now – even those returning from the past will fall into confusion. Be ambitious Sunday. Playfulness, optimism and social delights ﬁll Monday/Tuesday. Retreat midweek for a breather. Your energy and charisma soar Friday/Saturday! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The accent remains on ambition, career, prestige relations, reputation and dealings with authorities, parents and the boss. Remain ambitious, but realize new starts are likely to go awry. Even ongoing situations hold some delays, mistakes and misunderstandings. Be gentle, humorous, and patient. Start nothing important before Nov. 26. Sunday’s wise, loving. That ambition stuff strikes Monday/Tuesday – all’s ﬁne, just DO NOT be fooled by money fantasies. A former career role or boss might return. Happiness visits you midweek! Retreat, rest, contemplate Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your mind floats to rarified levels this week, especially Monday/Tuesday. Legal, educational, far travel, cultural, love and intellectual pursuits fascinate you now. Remember: start nothing new before Nov. 26. You might stumble across something you wrote or filmed long ago. My advice: don’t resurrect it, as you could muddle its message even more. However, a chance to revisit a foreign shore, to visit your old campus, or speak with an old flame, should be grabbed. Sunday’s mysterious. Be ambitious midweek. Happiness, optimism and social joys arrive Friday/Saturday. email@example.com
