Dr. Giggles House of Pain’s “Carnevil of Fears” frightened all of Chestermere for seven days leading up to Halloween night in support of the Chestermere Food Bank. Roughly 1,600 visitors walked through the “Carnevil of Fears” which raised 2156 lbs of food, and roughly $1,800 in cash donations for

the Chestermere Food Bank, Mike Koroll said. “It was fantastic, I didn’t hear anything negative, everybody absolutely loved it,” Koroll said. He added, “It was a very successful haunted house this year.” For Koroll ensuring the haunted house is scary is always a concern. “People don’t want to see less scary. From

By Jeremy Broadfield This Remembrance Day will mark 100 years since the guns fell silent on the battlefields of France and Belgium marking the end of the First World War. Despite this distance in years between 18-year-old Carter Dale and the war, he still believes it is important to remember the sacrifice of those who served and died in the trenches. “My Great, Great Grandfather fought at Vimy Ridge but he was killed a month later in a German counter attack,” said Dale. Dale’s Great, Great Uncle also fought in the war. In addition to a keen interest in military history, especially Canadian military history, Dale holds the rank of Cadet Master Warrant Officer with the 3125 (Calgary Highlanders) Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps located here in Chestermere. He has been with the cadets for the past six years, quickly rising up the ranks to currently be the second in command of his unit. It’s not just his involvement with the Army Cadets that has led to Dale’s desire to learn about and remember those who have served Canada. “I love reading about it I love learning about it,” he said. “I will always remember, especially with WWI being 100 years, just remembering these soldiers who fought,” said Dale.

While warfare has changed immensely from the fields of France to the desert of Afghanistan, Dale said that the act of remembrance shouldn’t change. “To me remembrance…it shouldn’t change because we should always remember those wars. “Nothing should really change in remembering these people ‘cause, from World War One, World War Two, Korea and Afghanistan Canadians have put their lives on the line to protect our country, to protect other people,” he said. “It’s always important just to look back and just to learn about why they chose to fight,” said Dale. As Remembrance Day approaches, Dale encourages everyone to reflect

on why the poppy is worn and why one attends a Remembrance Day ceremony. “I don’t think that people do realize how important this is,” he said. “You’re showing support for your country and the young men and women who have put their lives on the line for these past 100 years to help protect the country to help stop bad guys from coming into our country,” said Dale. As John McCrae wrote in his poem In Flanders Fields, “to you from failing hands we throw the torch; be yours to hold it high.” That torch has been picked up by Dale and many in his generation who are committed to remembering and learning from Canada’s past as they lead the way forward.

The Great War Remembered

Remembering the sacrifice of Chestermere’s World War I dead By Jeremy Broadfield It was supposed to be the war to end all wars. Known at the time as The Great War, close to 10 million soldiers were killed in the conflict that lasted from 1914-1918. This Remembrance Day we will be commemorating the 100th anniversary of the armistice that brought an end to that war. While it is commonly held that Canada matured as a nation and united as a country in fighting that war, the country paid a high price for it. According to the Canadian War Museum, almost 61,000 Canadians were killed and another 172,000 were wounded. Not even Chestermere, although sparsely populated and mostly farmland in the early 1900s, was spared from the horrors and pain of the First World War. Eleven men from the region were killed in the conflict. Among them was Hadden Ellis, the Great-Uncle of Carol Ellis who lives just north of Chestermere. “It’s terrible that they have these wars,” said Ellis, “they were still using horses, all


the horses that were killed, all the young men that were killed, nurses that get killed, on both sides, all the civilians that got killed.” Despite the horrors of trench warfare that her great-uncle had to endure Ellis said that, “it’s very wonderful he volunteered to serve.” Hadden was the fourth son of Shepard and Lida Ellis, and the only son to join the army. He was 17-years-old when he and his family moved from Ontario to the Chestermere region to join the rest of their extended family in 1912. After completing high school, Hadden worked on the family farm until he joined the army in 1916. Hadden served with the Canadian Light Horse and spent time in England before being deployed to France. “It makes you proud that they served, and we won,” said Ellis. While the British Empire, France and their allies won the war, Hadden wasn’t alive to see it. He was killed fighting in France on Sept. 24, 1917. Hadden is buried at the Villers Station Military

Cemetery in France. Growing up, Ellis said she didn’t really know about her Great-Uncle’s service and sacrifice. “I don’t really know a lot about it to tell you the truth,” she said. “It hadn’t been talked about a lot as I was growing up,” said Ellis. Fortunately, Ellis and her family have written a book chronicling their family history. She said they did this to preserve the stories and history, such as Hadden’s life. Included in the book are letters home from Hadden, photos him and his grave and a copy of his Canadian Expeditionary Force death certificate. Hadden’s letters home offer a glimpse into what life was like for him and the thousands of other Canadians who volunteered to joining the Canadian Expeditionary Force. He wrote home detailing his experiences in training, how he had not yet been issued a uniform on May 12, 1916 to a letter to his mother from the Shornecliffe Barracks in England where he mentions his dislike of cleaning saddles and the dinner to be

home stating that he didn’t think he would be missed in France if he were to be sent home. He also wrote about his

pride of being a, “Canuck,” and how they were recognized by friend and foe as being second to none as fighting men.

Mapping out the plan for seniors housing in Chestermere Seniors Housing roundtable draws huge crowd

The Seniors Housing Roundtable drew a crowd of close to 100 people Oct. 29. Photo by Jeremy Broadfield

By Jeremy Broadfield Close to 100 people came to voice their opinion and support for finding a housing solution for seniors in Chestermere at the Seniors’ Housing Roundtable held at Lakeside Golf Club Oct. 29. “I’m hearing lots of energy,” said Chestermere Mayor Marshall Chalmers. “We know we have nothing and it’s time to start getting some plans in place here to move this forward,” he said, “and there’s a lot of

support for that.” He said that the huge turnout shows that this is a priority for the community. “I think council’s hit the mark dead on in our strategic plan, this is a priority,” said Chalmers. “And we’ve got to start getting this figured out,” he said. To that end, Chalmers announced that the city will be establishing a Seniors Action Group that will build on the work done at the round table and makes sure

that the issue stays top of mind with Chestermere City Council. “This is about taking all the great work that’s been established, been done, formalize a committee so they know this is important to council and that their voice is being heard and supporting and leading us,” said Chalmers. The action group will build off of the start given to them by the roundtable. “We’re going to capture all this good conversation,”

said Chalmers. Attendees worked their way through four stations discussing and answering three questions; What are your impressions, What conclusions about seniors housing needs can you draw, and Based on your impressions what concrete steps would you recommend to ensure seniors housing needs are met now and in the future. “We’ve got to understand what the community needs,” he said.

“There’s been good work going on through the summer but this here is a great way to kind of formalize and start moving this forward,” said Chalmers. Chalmers would like to see the city take advantage of both the upcoming provincial and federal elections and the new developments that are getting started in the city. “We’ve got all kinds of dirt being moved already,” he said. “The time is now and let’s recognize that development’s going to happen, there’s opportunities let’s

start moving all this good work into the developer’s hands, into the builder’s hands, let them know what this community needs,” said Chalmers. The city is also looking to get support from both the federal and provincial governments for seniors housing in Chestermere. “We’ve got a provincial election coming, we’ve got a federal election coming and its our job as your local representatives to start putting pressure on them now to achieve some of these things that we need to do,” said Chalmers.

He added, “They were coming out for several reasons, a little bit of networking, a little bit of community, and little bit of profit, I think they certainly hit all of their marks, and they were happy. It won’t be a problem continuing to get food trucks out there from year to year.” Although Koroll and his neighbours spent nearly a month building the “Carnevil of Fears” and ensuring it would frighten anyone who walked through, they aren’t feeling burnt out, they are feeling even more excited for what’s to come next year and are getting ready to begin fundraising. “As we’re getting better we need a little bit more time to tinker on stuff throughout the year, just little side projects in the garage,” Koroll said. There were a few pieces in the haunted house that Koroll and his neighbours began building earlier, such as corpses, which they could have put off until closer to opening night, but instead took a week to build and then didn’t have to worry about them again. “If you got key pieces that are going to be pretty important in your scenes you got to get that stuff done. We got cracking on stuff when we needed to,” Koroll said. Now that Halloween night has passed, and the tear down of Dr. Giggles House of Pain has begun Koroll isn’t feeling too exhausted, because there were many people helping him throughout October. “More people than ever came to help decorate. “I was trying to get a little better at the event planning, as we were putting scenes together I was making sure we were

New space needed for rapidly growing charity

May’s Toybank requires more space to better serve the community

By Emily Rogers May’s Toybank has undergone many changes which will allow the organization to further help the community and surrounding area. “We are now a charity registered with Canada Revenue Agency (CRA),” said founder of May’s Toybank Marion Schmaltz. Since May’s Toybank is now a registered charity tax deductible receipts can be written for anyone or any businesses who want to donate. “As strange as it may sound, it makes it easier and more likely for companies to donate to you because they can use it as a tax write off, as well as individuals,” Schmaltz said. She added, “I was extremely excited when I found out, there’s been quite a few grants that I’ve come across that I couldn’t even apply for because I didn’t have a registered charity status.” Another benefit of being a registered charity is the ability to apply for grants, something Schmaltz has been doing for the grants that May’s Toybank is eligible for. “Every little bit counts at this point,” Schmaltz said. Schmaltz has been working towards her goal of May’s Toybank having a space in

which residents in need can shop for children’s toys and clothing. A silent auction will be held at the West Creek Pub on Nov. 9 at 5 p.m., to raise funds for a location. “We will have information about our program and what we do, people can come out to meet us and see what our program is all about,” Schmaltz said. “Our goal is to be able to open a location in Chestermere, and to better help our clients,” said Schmaltz. “We have totally outgrown the space that we have, we started out in the basement, we filled the basement, we’ve also been using a one-ton truck and a 15-passenger school bus for storage,” Schmaltz said. She added, “It just seemed like the best way going about doing a fundraiser.” For Schmaltz organizing a traditional fundraiser wouldn’t work for May’s Toybank. “It would take far too many volunteers, this just seemed like the easiest way to go about it,” Schmaltz said. The largest challenge Schmaltz is facing while organizing the silent auction is ensuring there is enough variety of items up for auction which will catch

people’s attention. “All of the money goes to benefit the toy bank, and in turn goes back into helping local income families in Chestermere,” Schmaltz said. She added, “We would really like to see everybody come out to the event, and we hope to see everyone there.” Right now, May’s Toybank is accepting donations of boy’s clothes sizes six and up, and girls clothes size seven and up. “The majority of things I have is boys size three and under, and girls six and under, we really need for the older sizes. “It definitely becomes hard because boys tend to wear out their clothes before they outgrow them,” Schmaltz said. Once May’s Toybank has a space Schmaltz will welcome volunteers, however, without a designated space there isn’t an opportunity to have volunteers just yet, Schmaltz said. She added, “I’ve been talking to different groups in Chestermere about trying to help get a location, we contacted anybody and everybody we could.” This year, May’s Toybank will be donating toys for the Christmas Hampers, with drop boxes in banks in Chestermere. Tickets for May’s Toybank silent auction can be purchased for $5 by contacting Marion Schmaltz at 403903-1973, or can be picked up at the West Creek Pub.

2019 budget sees proposed tax decrease

Proposed tax rate to see city taxes decrease by 1.8 per cent By Jeremy Broadfield

Notice of Public Consultation Prince of Peace Lutheran School Rocky View Schools invites parents/guardians to a public meeting to explore the future of Prince of Peace Lutheran School program in advance of RVS’ lease expiration on Aug. 31, 2019. We will be discussing: • arrangements for the program; • impacts to students and staff; and • RVS’ long-range capital plan and the educational and financial implications of maintaining or discontinuing the program. Full details of the Prince of Peace Consultation Plan are found on the website at Date: Nov. 14, 2018 Time: 7 – 9 p.m. Location: Prince of Peace School


Chestermere city council have begun the 2019 budget deliberations with some good news for residents. The current proposed budget includes a 1.8 per cent decrease in taxes for 2019. The proposed tax decrease comes from $1.185 million reduction in the city’s financial plan. “I’m extremally pleased with the first view of the budget,” said Chestermere’s Mayor Marshall Chalmers. He credits the hard work of city administration both in preparing the budget and the budget presentation for council. “Last night you’ve seen the presentation of hundreds, hundreds, hundreds of hours of work internally,” said Chalmers. “Our job now as council is to absorb what we’ve been presented, deliberate and…they’ve really given us a great start for sure,” Chalmers said that with this budget, the city is tying in the budget with the level of service provided by the city. “When we have discussions with the community, it should be about what level of service is it that you want,” he said. Level of service was a significant part of the city’s budget engagement campaign over the summer which asked Chestermere residents, “how will you slice the [budget] pie.” “We went to the community [and asked] what’s your thoughts,” said Chalmers. While there were less responses to the survey than hoped for, decreasing the accuracy, residents generally said that they would like to see a decrease in all city departments except for emergency services, policing and enforcement. Since the 2019 budget is the first one for

November 08, 2018 //

the current city council, it also has been brought into alignment with council’s new strategic plan. “This budget now reflects, very much reflects this new council’s strategic direction,” said Chalmers. As council deliberates on the proposed budget, Chalmers said that they are mindful that many residents are still struggling in the current economic conditions. “There’s indications…that we’re starting to come out of the bottom of the downturn,” he said. “We recognize, and it was born out in the presentation, we’re a long ways from where we would like to be as far as, you know, a hot economy. “That translates into people still… are struggling and we need to be mindful of that as we deliberate and try and do the best we can to ultimately provide a level of service the community wants but with the tax dollar in mind,” said Chalmers. “We’re very aware things aren’t all roses yet and we’re going to be doing our best to reflect that in our decision making as we go through this process for sure,” he said. Council’s task of deliberating on the budget was made easier by the way staff presented the budget Oct. 30. “A great presentation…council was extremally pleased with the manner in which it was [presented],” said Chalmers. “Great work and we’re now going to dig in and again being very…the economy isn’t where we need it to be yet,” he said. Council will continue their deliberations on Nov. 5 starting at 5 p.m. in council chambers. To view the budget presentation go to View/12933/FPLan-2019-2022---CapitalOperating-v2

Painting a better future Painting hunger out of the equation By Emily Rogers Jack of all trades, retired real estate agent, computer technician, and local artist is giving back to community through his art. Rick Gonzales curiosity has driven him into learning how to build websites, create original jewelry for his wife, how to paint, and now his latest project Art for Food. “You have to keep your mind busy,” Gonzales said. “A few people have asked me why I don’t sell my paintings, they were interested in buying one, and I never have really been interested in selling my hobby,” Gonzales said. He added, “The jewelry I made, it’s all original stuff that comes out of my head, I never sold any piece, I only made it for my wife.

“It’s a bit strange, because a lot of people want to make money from the things they do, I understand that, for me I like to keep it as a hobby, as my own little thing. When you start selling your hobby, it becomes a job. “I didn’t think anybody would like them, and then when somebody started to like the paintings, I thought maybe I could use this to make money to donate to the food bank.” Gonzales has recently sold one of the paintings for Art for Food, where he donated 100 per cent of the money raised to the Chestermere Food Bank. “That’s a win-win for everybody. The person who bought it is happy, she liked the painting, the food bank gets the money, and I get to feel good that somebody likes the painting,” Gonza-

les said. Gonzales has been working on multiple paintings, including one which he is creating for Christmas with Dignity. “I’m working on a whole bunch, the problem is I’ve ran out of walls, I don’t know where to put them anymore. “It’s not like an eight to five job, when you know exactly what you need to do, when you start painting you don’t really know what you’re going to do,” Gonzales said. Inspiration comes from everything that Gonzales see’s. He can be driving along a familiar road and notice new things he has never seen before and feel inspired to work on an acrylic or oil painting. “Everything catches my eye more than other peo-

Rick Gonzales works on all of his oil painting beside the kitchen window. He is currently working on a seascape picture, which eventually will be up on the Art for Food Facebook page. Gonzales works on many paintings at a time, gaining inspiration from other aspects of his life, and adding details to the paintings until they are finished. Photo by Emily Rogers

ple,” Gonzales said. However, Gonzales inspiration for creating Art for Food came from his own personal struggles. “It still shocks me that there are people who don’t have food,” Gonzales added, “That shocked me considerably, I can’t understand it.” A shed, much like the ones people have in their backyards to store tools would have been considered a high-end condo compared to where Gonzales used to live, he said. “We had a shack, it was full of holes, and the water would come in, we used to cover it up with flour and water, and make glue, and use newspaper to cover the holes. “I guess that affects you somehow, I do like to do something for other people.

November 08, 2018 //

I just hate to see people without food, I guess because I went through that it bothers me,” Gonzales said. Painting is an expression for Gonzales. “A lot of things come out of frustration, problems in your life, there’s always something that effects your life. The paintings are just a release of energy, I’m trying to make everything look a bit better. “Everybody has the potential to change their attitude or their life and look back and help a bit. I want to keep on painting, and I want to keep donating either to the food bank or to the shelter downtown,” Gonzales said. He added, “I think we can all help.” Gonzales wife, Karen Gonzales said, “He is very-very creative. He loves to give

back, he knows what it likes not to have food. He’s been without, so he knows what it’s like.” She added, “We’ve been successful, we don’t take it for granted, and we want to give back and that’s exactly why he’s doing this.” Rick is encouraging the community to get involved and to help others through creativity. “Hopefully I can get more people involved creating things, selling it, people don’t have to give 100 per cent, they can give 50 per cent or whatever they want. There’s no rules on that,” he said. To get involved with Art for Food please visit the Facebook page at https://

Each year on November 11, Canadians pause in a silent moment of remembrance for the men and women who have served and continue to serve their country during times of war, conflict and peace. Known as Remembrance Day, the day honors the brave people who fought for Canada in the First World War (19141918), the Second World War (1939-1945) and the Korean War (1950-1953), as well as those who have served since then. More than 1.5 million Canadians have served in the military. Tragically, more than 100,000 of those brave men and women have died. The Canadian Armed Forces, or CAF, make up the government’s largest federal department. The CAF serves on land, in the air and on the sea, and branches include the Canadian Army, the Royal Canadian Air Force and the Royal Canadian Navy. Each branch serves a unique role. Learning about each branch is a great way for civilians to gain a greater understanding of the efforts and sacrifices the men and women protecting their freedoms make each and every day.

Canadian Army

The largest element of the CAF, the Canadian Army is the land component of the country’s military. Soldiers in the Canadian Army are trained at bases, armouries and training centers throughout Canada. It’s these training sessions that prepare Canadian soldiers for a wide range of scenarios, including operations at home and abroad. There are 23,000 full-time soldiers in the Regular Force and an additional 17,000 part-time,

volunteer soldiers in the Reserve Force.

Royal Canadian Air Force

The Royal Canadian Air Force protects Canadian and North American airspace in partnership with the United States. The RCAF provides the Canadian Armed Forces with relevant, responsive and effective air power to meet present and future defence challenges. Among its many roles, the RCAF provides control and surveillance of Canadian territory, airspace and maritime approaches while also conducting search and rescue missions to aid those in distress anywhere in Canada. Those are significant responsibilities, as Canada has the second largest territory and airspace in the world. The RCAF includes 12,000 Regular Force personnel and 2,100 Air Reserve personnel.

Royal Canadian Navy

The mission of the Royal Canadian Navy and its leader is to lead the strategic

development and generation of combat-capable, multi-purpose maritime forces while providing advice and support to maritime operations. The Maritime Forces Pacific, Maritime Forces Atlantic and Naval Reserve are directly responsible to the Commander of the Royal Canadian Navy. The Maritime Forces Pacific and Maritime Forces Atlantic generate, maintain and sustain an armed capability to guard Canada’s Pacific and Atlantic maritime approaches. Maritime Forces Atlantic, which employs more than 5,000 military and 2,000 civilian personnel, is headquartered in Halifax and home to 18 ships and submarines. Maritime Forces Pacific, headquartered in Esquimalt, British Columbia on Vancouver Island, is home to 15 ships and submarines and employs around 4,000 military and 2,000 civilian personnel. Canadian military personnel play an invaluable role, both in Canada and abroad.

Our province of Alberta is blessed with waving fields of grain, making us both Canada’s breadbasket and Canada’s supplier of malting barley for the beer and whisky industries. The rising popularity of small-batch craft spirits has seen an explosion of small distillers popping up in Alberta, both as a side gig for craft breweries who branch out into distillation, and startups with just a single patent still running in a garage or rented shop bay. However, if we look back at historical whisky production in the early years of Canada, we find it very much centered in the province of Onterrible. In the 1700s, most of the population was located in the separate provinces of Upper Canada and Lower Canada, the predecessors to modern-day Ontario and Quebec. The first whisky distillery in Canada was opened in Quebec City in 1769 by an English immigrant named John Molson, who later opened up a little brewery in Montreal that you may have heard of. Scottish immigrants soon followed Molson’s example, with distilleries popping up all over the land, made in the traditional Scottish style, which is why Canadian Whisky follows the Scottish spelling. Our Yankee neighbours, on the

other hand, had a distilling industry mostly founded by Irish immigrants, which is why American Whiskey follows the -ey spelling used in Ireland. The first Canadian whiskies were primarily made from the abundant wheat harvests, but growing numbers of Dutch and German immigrants preferred a spicier tipple, and caught upon the idea of adding in a small percentage of rye grains to impart a peppery taste to the whisky, which became wildly popular and is still a signature of Canadian whiskies to this very day. Another old-timer in the whisky business is Canadian Club, which was founded in 1858 by Hiram Walker, a Yankee entrepreneur who opened a distillery in Windsor, just a stone’s throw across the border from Detroit. There were many clandestine trips across the Detroit River in heavilyladen rowboats under cover of darkness during the years of American Prohibition, which gave our neighbours to the south a hankering for Canadian Whisky, soon leading Canadian Club to be the most popular whisky in the USA, a title it held all the way until 2010, when it was finally overtaken by Bourbon. With the whisky market in Windsor dominated by Canadian Club, a first-

Lakeside Libations generation Canadian named Joseph Seagram decided to move closer to the growing population of Toronto, starting up a distillery in Waterloo in 1869, which experienced rapid growth and basically printed money during the years of American Prohibition by allegedly smuggling vast quantities of liquor into the United States. The Seagrams name has all but disappeared today due to mergers and acquisitions, but back in the 1990s, Seagrams was the largest spirits company in the world. By the year 2000, different divisions of Seagrams had been sold off to other booze conglomerates like Diageo, Pernod Ricard, and even Coca-Cola. Perhaps the most lasting legacy of Seagrams is Crown Royal Whisky, created in 1939 as a tribute to King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, who made the first royal visit to Canada that year. Crown Royal is still produced today, with production moving from the Waterloo distillery which closed in 1992, to the current distillery in Gimli, on the shores of Lake Winnipeg. More than 50 million bottles of Crown Royal are sold each year, with those iconic purple bags known to boozers and non-boozers alike, as they often end up

holding marbles or legos for the little members of the family. Hockey fans may enjoy the Wayne Gretzky No 99 Whisky, a wee dram of which is rumoured to make you skate faster and shoot straighter on the rink. I was lucky enough to visit the Gretzky Estates Winery & Distillery while touring the Niagara wine region in Ontario a few years back, and enjoyed the wines and spirits immensely. Saving the best for last, my favourite Ontario whisky is from the Forty Creek Distillery, located right on the highway, about halfway between Toronto and Niagara Falls. Forty Creek was opened in 1992 by a passionate winemaker with decades of experience who decided to branch out into whisky, and has been gathering accolades since day one. There are a few gimmicky whiskies with added honey or spices, but my favourite is a traditional blended whisky called Forty Creek Copper Pot, made in an oldschool copper still. There are fancier whiskies with more years in the oak barrels, but my everyday sipper is the Copper Pot, available for the bargain price of $35 at your local bottle shop. Taste a bit of Canadian history by sampling an Ontario whisky today!


PAWS for Thought Steve King is the President of The Community Therapy Dogs Society email:

The Turquoise Table Story Habits and Quirks Kristin Schell tells the story of how she longed for community and found it in surprising ways. In her book, ‘The Turquoise Table,’ she shares about how she lived in a suburban neighbourhood and dealt with many of the same challenges families here in Chestermere often face. She and her kids were feeling increasingly disconnected with each other, distracted, busy, and flustered by all the demands of a young family. In the midst of this, Schell began to encounter her neighbours in a new way and enjoyed something she had not considered before. A few parties and gatherings started to open her eyes to a new possibility: she was not meant to be frazzled and disconnected, but in relationship and connected to those around her. She began a journey into her neighbourhood and it came in an unexpected form. Mother Theresa once said, “If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten to belong to each other.” Schell found that she needed people in her life and began to create a space for others

to join in. One day she did something unusual. She bought simple picnic table and painted it turquoise and decided to put it in her front yard. She wondered what would happen. Would people think she was weird? Would people stop by to sit and chat? It felt strange and a bit frightening to just sit out and wait for someone to connect with. What would unfold? Kristin Schell says that her front-yard turquoise table experiment changed how she connect ed with her neighbours right away. Within fifteen minutes sitting at her table, while simply writing in a journal, a neighbour stopped by and chatted for awhile. She writes, “despite all my worries, fears, and hesitations, on the very first day at the table I had met a complete stranger who lives four doors down from me.” It was good. Leonard Sweet wrote that, “our culture is hungry for table time.” In my own home we have a long table, it was given to us by a friend and gets a lot of use. On halloween we had seven kids and six adults packed around our

table warming up on soup before we headed out to trick-or-treat. More people are discovering the joy of being around a table and in the case of the turquoise table, something more is happening. A movement called, #frontyardpeople is encourage people to set up their own turquoise table in their front yard. Across North America people are reclaiming their communities by setting up these tables and spending time in the front of their homes. People are meeting, connecting, and sharing stories. It’s freeing people from disconnection and dislocation and making new space for community to thrive. While Canadians might be preparing for a cold and snowy winter, it is inspiring to think about ways we can invite people around our table, resist isolation and busy-ness, and build space into our lives for others. May you discover the joy of connecting. Turquoise table or not, you are welcome here. To learn more about this movement, visit

On the spectrum of being OCD to being totally laid back, we, as humans, ALL have our habits and quirks. What makes no sense to one person, makes perfect sense to another. And so to dogs. When we observe our dogs doing something which, from a human perspective, looks odd, rather than raising our eyes to the sky and making a comment such as “that dog is just stupid”, let’s look at the situation from a dog’s point of view. He or she may be thinking “how dumb is this human for not realizing why I’m doing what I’m doing: this is normal behaviour for me”. Not understanding why a dog does what it does doesn’t make the dog stupid. It simply means we don’t understand. One quirk that our own dog has takes place at meal times. The kibble is in his bowl and he’s been given the ok to eat. First thing he does is to pick up on average 4-6 pieces of kibble, walk 8-10 feet away and drop them on the carpet. This is repeated once but on a different area of the carpet. He then returns to his bowl and finishes the remainder of the kibble. Having finished what was in the bowl he will

November 08, 2018 //

normally (90% of the time) return to the dropped kibble and eat it. Even though I appreciate that dogs don’t do anything without good reason (in their minds), I am bemused by this behaviour. Unlike burying a bone in the back yard where, in his mind, no-one else knows where he has buried it, the kibble is left there for the world to see. Daily I am left smiling as this ritual unfolds before my eyes, never getting any closer to understanding what in his DNA drives this habit. As a dog owner, I’m sure

I’m not the only person to notice how dogs seem to wake up and go to bed at almost the exact same time each day, come rain or shine, summer or winter. This has always fascinated me. Having dismissed the possibility that dogs can tell the time by looking at a clock, I ask myself “how can they do this?” Is their internal body clock so well tuned that they know how many hours it is since they first awoke that habit has taken over? Dogs enjoy routine, which invariably reflects human habits and the timing of certain events each day. When routine is broken, dogs may become upset or depressed, simply because their understanding of what should be happening has been altered. Life doesn’t always run as we expect it to so, if your dog starts to act abnormally, think back to what happened during the day. You may just find that his or her behaviour is reflecting a shift away from routine or habit. Talking of change, November 4th brings a changing of the clocks to, in theory, give us an extra hour in bed. Good luck trying to explain this to your dog!

Chestermere High School Athletics Brian Utley - Â

NOVEMBER 5, 2018 Best of luck to the three volleyball teams as they complete their Rocky View league seasons this week, with playoffs. Best of luck to all teams. FOOTBALL The football team finished the season on a strong note, despite a tough loss, 22-20, to the WH Croxford Cavaliers. They had a great start to the game with Dakota Konschuh returning the opening kickoff 82 yards for a touchdown. The boys were down 22-7 in the 4th quarter when they mounted a furious comeback. Nathan Porterfield scored on a 19 yard touchdown pass from Dakota on a trick play. Dakota completed the best game of his career with a 22 yard touchdown on an interception, to close the gap to 22-20. The defense held up and the offense made some big plays to give the team a chance to win the game. With 17 second left the team had a field goal blocked to end the game. It was a tough finish but the boys played their hearts out. Best of luck to the 15 graduating seniors. You will be tough to replace. Thanks to all the coaches and parents for all of your work with the season. Next up for the team is the windup awards night to be held later in November. JUNIOR GIRLS VOLLEYBALL The JV Girls Volleyball team defeated Bow Valley 3-0 last week in the final league match of the year. The girls finished 2nd in the league and are hoping for a great playoff run. The girls host Cochrane in semi-finals on Wednesday at 6:00. With a win, the Lakers will move on to the championship finals on Friday. SENIOR GIRLS VOLLEYBALL The Senior Girls Volleyball team defeated Bow Valley 3-0 last week in the final league match of the year. The girls finished 4th in the league and are hoping for strong playoffs. The girls host bow Valley in quarter-finals on Monday. With a win the Lakers will move on to the semi-finals on Wednesday at Cochrane.

Preparing youth for the future Teaching youth how to live independently successfully

“It will help make them more financially, mentally, and emotionally prepared for this big step in their lives,” Samoylove said. “Moving out is a big step, and an important turning point in many youth’s lives,” Samoylove added. Learning how to live independently is something that youth don’t learn about in school but can have a huge negative impact if they aren’t prepared, Samoylove said. She added, “We want to prepare youth and young adults in the community to be ready for the next stage in their life.” Not only will Moving Out and Moving On benefit youth who are ready to take the next step in their lives, but it will also benefit the community as a whole. “By providing youth with information on how to move out effectively, they will be better at communicating with their future landlords and can help fill up rental spaces in the community. “By decreasing their stress, it will help them channel their energy into their passion, and goals for the future, and allow them more time and energy to give back to their community,” Samoylove said. Youth and young adults can attend Moving Out and Moving On for free by emailing Samoylove at khadija@ or by calling 403-212-0242. To ensure a spot, please email by Nov. 15. For more information about programs offered at Synergy and upcoming events please visit the website at

By Emily Rogers Synergy is giving youth the information they need in order to move out successfully. The Moving Out and Moving On youth workshop will be held on Nov. 17, beginning at 10 a.m., until 2:30 p.m., and is geared for youth and young adults aged 16 to 24. “We consulted with our Coffee Talk youth over the summer, and many of them were interested in a moving out workshop,” said Synergy Resource Coordinator Khadija Samoylove. “Moving out is big task, and they wanted to be prepared for it,” Samoylove said. The Moving Out and Moving On workshop be facilitated by the Canadian Mental Health Association, and will include lecture-style teaching, discussions, a rental finding activity, lunch, and door prizes. Moving Out and Moving On will teach youth how to find affordable housing rentals, how to communicate with landlords, how to deal with conflicts, and how to budget while living independently. “It will provide them with the knowledge to move out with less stress,” Samoylove said. She added, many of the youth who participate in Synergy activities and programs will be finishing high school within the next two years and are considering university. This workshop will help them find accommodations easily and help them understand living independently, so they are able to reduce the stress associated with moving out.

Seniors Being Smart on Smartphones and Social Networks

Baljinder Sull, M.C Registered Provisional Psychologist

LakeMed Medical Clinic

What Are Automatic Thoughts? Envision this: You are walking down the street and notice an acquaintance look your way and say something to the person they’re with. An immediate thought pops into your head, “they must be saying horrible things about me.” This can lead to feelings of anxiety, worry, and stress, which a minute before you were not feeling. This situation is an example of what can occur when we experience an automatic thought. We all experience these kinds of thoughts, which happen automatically and frequently in response to triggers in our environment. However, not all automatic thoughts are negative or unhelpful. For example, if you’re walking to your car late at night, you may feel extra cautious due to the late hour and being alone. Your thoughts may involve concern that someone will approach you, and potentially harm you. This can be an automatic trigger for you to walk faster, and to be extra alert of your surrounding environment. Although some automatic thoughts may be helpful, automatic negative thoughts can become problematic if they persist, especially for those struggling with anxiety and/or depression. Theory behind automatic thoughts Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is a theory which helps us to examine automatic thoughts, with a primary goal being to help identify dysfunctional

cognitions, and find ways to challenge existing unhelpful thinking styles (AATBS, 2017). CBT is helpful for people to understand the relationship between events, thoughts, and behaviours. Rather than focusing on uncontrollable, external factors, CBT helps to shift the focus onto the individual, and to highlight that although they do not have control over external events, they do have control over their responses to a situation. Going back to our first example, it could be possible the acquaintance you made eye contact with was already mid conversation and coincidentally glanced in your direction. Considering other possibilities is an opportunity for clients to bring the focus and control back to themselves. The objective is to challenge the negative thought, consider additional possibilities, and reassess the power the original thought had. CBT is a process of evaluation and can be beneficial for a multitude of presenting concerns. Explaining CBT may appear easy; however, this is a process which takes time and practice. CBT can range from basic to very complex depending on the concerns clients present with in therapy. Types of unhelpful thoughts There are a variety of names for unhelpful thoughts such as: distorted thinking, irrational thinking, and unhelpful cognitions. A

common thought clients discuss is the belief that they “should” or “must” have done things a certain way. This type of thinking creates the irrational belief in people that an event would have gone a particular way had they done things differently. For example, an anxious student presents with the belief that they SHOULD have studied 10 additional hours per week, and then they would have achieved a better grade on their exam. This type of thinking rules out additional possibilities for the grade such as: poor sleep the night before, exam anxiety, illness, a difficult exam, etc. Rather than considering external factors, this individual has spent the day ‘shoulding’ all over themself. The truth is we will never know the outcomes of ‘what-ifs.’ We can only focus on the actual outcomes, learn from them, and move on from there. We need tremendous kindness and awareness about our automatic thoughts in order to change them. One recommendation is to seek the better feeling thought. Does it make sense to beat yourself up over something outside of your control, or to remind yourself that you are human & continuing to grow and learn. If you find yourself struggling with persistent negative thinking, consider CBT and see if it may be the right type of therapy for you.

A study from Statistics Canada revealed that seniors are the fastest growing segment of Internet users in Canada and that 69 per cent of Canadians aged 55 to 64 and 18 per cent of those 75 years and older own a smartphone. In addition to adopting mobile technologies like smartphones and tablets, seniors are also joining social media networks to stay connected. It is now more important than ever before to empower seniors to stay safe in our digital world. The Canada Safety Council has partnered with TELUS during National Senior Safety Week, held from November 6 – 12, to bring a heightened focus on supporting seniors as they develop critical thinking and safe practices when using smartphones and social media. Social media sharing and safety There is a thin line between being connected and over sharing on social media. Here are six tips to help you protect your privacy and avoid over sharing on social media: 1. Never share your passwords, banking information, social insurance number or any other private information online. This tip may seem like common sense, but there may come a time when you need to share this information with a family member. Instead of sending the information online, it is more prudent to call them or, ideally, deliver the information in person. 2. Set strong and unique passwords or passphrases (i.e. a complete sentence such as ILoveMyGrandkids367*) for your accounts and enable two-factor authentication (2FA) for added protection; with 2FA, you need to authenticate yourself with something in addition to your username and password, such as a code that is sent to your device by text. 3. Switch your social media profile to private in order to hide your profile information from users you have not accepted as friends. 4. Regularly review and update your privacy and permission settings so that you’re comfortable with what information you’re sharing and with whom. 5. Don’t accept friend requests from strangers or those you don’t know. 6. Be mindful of what you post and share, including information you may be unknowingly sharing. For instance, posting photos while on vacation is an indication

November 08, 2018 //

that you’re not at home. You may also be inadvertently sharing the location in which the photos and/or videos were taken. This is done through the process of geo-tagging, which adds geographical location data to photos or videos. To enhance your privacy, turn geo-tagging off in your phone settings and wait to share vacation photos until you return. Mobile device safety Protect your information on your phone (or tablet) by implementing these steps: 1. Set up a passcode on your device so no one can access your device without your permission and update settings so your phone automatically locks after a period of inactivity. 2. Most smartphones have a feature allowing you to locate your phone remotely in case you lose it, or delete data/disable it if it is stolen. Be sure this feature is activated (Find my Phone on iOS and Find my Device on Android). 3. Erase all content and settings (iOS) and/ or perform a factory reset (Android) on your phone before giving it away or recycling it. This will wipe the phone clean of all your data and is more secure relative to manually deleting the information on your phone item by item. 4. When using free Wi-Fi in public places, be cautious of what information you transmit over the Internet: • Don’t download any software updates over public Wi-Fi. It is an easy way to accidentally introduce a virus onto your device. • Avoid surfing sites that require you to login, but if you can’t avoid it make sure the URL of the website starts with https and not http. This indicates an added layer of data encryption. • Refrain from doing any online shopping so as to protect your credit card information. 5. When downloading apps, read the privacy and permission agreements. These outline what information of yours is shared with the developer when you agree to their terms.

November Mayor’s Message 9 Things to Know for November Autumn always seems to be one of the busiest times of the year, doesn’t it? The same is true with your City Council so I thought I’d break down a list of what we have on the go at the moment. 1. CUI’s Future: On October 22, KPMG and McMillan LLP presented preliminary reports to Council on our options for CUI. They gave us five suggestions and we are currently digging into the implications of those options before we choose a path forward. Upcoming meetings and decisions about CUI will be announced on our website. 2. Remembrance Day: The annual service is November 11 at 10:45 a.m. at the cenotaph in Anniversary Park. Please join us to pay your respects to our veterans. 3. Seniors’ Housing Roundtable: We had a great discussion about seniors’ housing on October 29. Thank you to all who attended; there was great energy in the room! Our next step is to establish a committee to support Council, which will focus on aging in place. 4. Budget: We had our preliminary budget presentation on October 30. Council and I are pleased that Administration has found savings and efficiencies, and we will continue the budget deliberations throughout November. What you said about how you wanted to ‘slice the pie’ had a big impact on the proposal, so thank you for your participation. 5. Amazing Chestermere Report: We have been expecting this report for several months and are pleased that it will be presented to Council in November with suggestions for next steps. Stay tuned! 6. Winter Lights Festival: Hitch up your sleigh and join in the community celebration on November 24 to kick off the festive season! Our staff add more light displays every year and we look forward to seeing you there as we ‘light up the night.’ 7. Mayor’s Breakfast: The Chamber of Commerce is once again hosting the Mayor’s breakfast on November 22 at which I will be giving a ‘state of the union’ address. We will be streaming the speech live on the City’s Facebook page if you’d like to tune in. 8. Dave Mikkelsen Award: Each year, we ask youth (or organizations that work with youth) to submit an idea for how to make our community better. The winners receive $1000 to put towards their initiative. We are currently accepting nominations at 9. Advocacy Work: In the last few months, we have had some excellent meetings with other mid-sized cities and Rocky View County. Building relationships with our neighbours is important to us and we are pleased to continue this work. This is all in addition to meeting with you, our residents! Please feel free to stop in, join us at Coffee with Council or send us a note about what’s on your mind. We look forward to hearing from you. Mayor Chalmers

Provincial News Hello Chestermere! I am happy to see that our amazing, resilient farmers were able to get most of the harvest into the bin! This is tempered by sadness that the wet conditions meant a big loss of grade in many cases. Just think about what they have faced this year: first, smoke reducing sunlight, second, very dry conditions, and then third 12 inches of snow flattening the crops. It takes a special family to keep going and look optimistically to next year. I wanted to take a moment and give a shout to a couple of my very dear friends, Satish Lal (and his incredible family), and Ramesh Verma along with Rupak Dutta, the President of the the Amra Sabai of Calgary Association, Cathy Burness our Deputy Mayor, Joanne from the City of Chestermere, the youth volunteers of the Multicultural Youth Society of Chestermere, Subhash Bali, Sandeep Gar, Pawan Bhatt, Rup Sen Prasad and Acharya Vinod Kumar Sodiyal for the Diya lighting ceremony. These folks partnered with


the Hindu Society of North America, the New Horizon Mall, Danny Chan, Nelson Naido, Denise, and Jennele Giong and combined their efforts in Balzac where Diwali brought together many ethnic communities and a diverse group of audiences including Koreans, Vietnamese, Filipinos, and many others. Thank you to their mighty volunteers who pulled off two fabulous Diwali functions this weekend, in Chestermere and in Balzac. For those of you who organize events, you know the amount of work that goes into these functions, and especially when you add in entertainment and awesome food! Thank you to the organizers, our gorgeous MC Anannya Biswas, performers and volunteers for this wonderful event and for including me. It was an honour to participate. I wanted to chat a little bit about the carbon tax. If you truly want to make a difference in the global pollution footprint, we need more Canada! We have the

best environmental policies by far. We are leaders in innovation in non-conventional oil extraction and are improving day by day. We were once upon a time competitive, and had the best tax advantages in the world, but now companies are exposed to an environment that sees Alberta as unable to attract capital, pushing business to our competitors south of the border, purchasing trains to move oil, when we could have had at least 3 pipelines, Energy East, TMX, and Keystone. This is our lifeblood, and we should be so proud to have these incredible resources, and yet here we are begging to bring prosperity to our country through so called “social license”, hiring activists to work on our oil and gas advisory panels, creating a carbon tax that does absolutely nothing to mitigate pollution, and in case you didn’t hear, our very own Alberta Made carbon tax will go up by 67% after Christmas. Albertans are extremely environmentally minded, but the combina-

tion of our Provincial NDP Government’s disastrous energy policies along with the Federal Liberal Government putting in tougher regulations for resource projects while ignoring the First Nations who approve of pipelines is too much to bear! Not to mention exemptions for Quebec cement plants and New Brunwick coal power plants, to name a couple of examples of Trudeau’s complete hypocrisy. Also keep an eye out for the Trudeau government if re-elected raising the Federal carbon tax past the $50/tonne mark in 2022. There will be a review evidently which includes increased stringency(strictness), and even with all this, the ideas are no better or further ahead of the targets set by our previous Prime Minister Harper. The Carbon tax would have to go up to at $300/tonne to see any real change, and maybe that is the plan! You may want to keep an eye on this. In B.C., the NDP Government and their Federal MPs are vowing to do whatever it takes to keep Alberta oil away from their ports. The anti-pipeline movement continues, and yet if you speak with British Columbians, many are not on board with this activism, but it seems that our Premier would rather push for more oil on rail cars

that working towards seeing the Trans Mountain Pipeline built. Rail is a proposal to help with the gap in the differential that is costing Alberta hundreds of millions every week in losses due to deep discounts for a barrel of our oil due to the lack of pipeline capacity. This would not have been an issue except that…oh yes…the pipeline was quashed by the Federal Court of Appeal. B.C. has filed to register as an intervener to question the National Energy Board in reconsidering the Trans Mountain expansion, in fact the extra 22 weeks that has been set by the Federal government to look at the pipeline, is insufficient to the BC government. They want those timelines lengthened! Trans Mountain has in fact submitted a very substantive examination of risk to marine life, and expanding traffic in the Salish Sea. This is a product of six years of work to show the safeguards both environmental and safety that would mitigate any major issues. We are an amazing Country and we are so blessed to live in Alberta. We have to stand up for our resources folks, proud and loud. Lets work together to get our resources to the rest of the world! As always we love to hear from you!

Federal News Each year, from November 5 to 11, Canadians from coast to coast to coast mark Veterans’ Week. On November 11th, Canadians across the country gather together to attend Remembrance Day ceremonies. This year’s Remembrance Day marks the 100th anniversary of the armistice that ended the First World War. We know the final days of that conflict as “Canada’s Hundred Days,” a stretch of significant Canadian victories that helped end the war. In three months, the Canadian Corps advanced roughly 130 kilometres and took some 32,000 prisoners. By the conclusion of Canada’s Hundred Days, 30 Canadians and Newfoundlanders had earned the Victoria Cross. During these last hundred days, Canadians rarely suffered less than 100 casualties a day. In total, the First World War cost approximately 61,000 brave young Canadians their lives, and 172,000 were wounded.

November 08, 2018 //

We must never forget the sacrifices of First World War Veterans, and of all Canadian Veterans. Whether during war or peacetime, Canadian soldiers have always stood ready to defend freedom, democracy and justice. Many have paid the ultimate price.

TV Feature Life goes on in Lanford By Kyla Brewer TV Media Sitcoms are a staple of prime time, peppering just about every night of the week. But few of this season’s sitcoms have generated as much buzz as “The Conners.” Since losing his wife, Dan Conner (John Goodman, “The Big Lebowski,” 1998) has been soldiering on as the head of the household in “The Conners,” which airs Tuesday, Nov. 13, on ABC and CTV. The show is a spinoff of ABC’s “Roseanne,” a comedy about a working-class family in the fictional small town of Lanford, Ill., which aired from 1988 to 1997, and again last spring in a much lauded revival. “Roseanne” centred on Conner family matriarch Roseanne (Roseanne Barr, “The Roseanne Barr Show”), but a now-famous racist Tweet from the comedian about Valerie Jarrett, senior adviser to former president Barack Obama, prompted ABC to cancel that show in May, despite its stellar ratings. Three weeks after Barr was ousted from the series, the network announced plans for a spinoff featuring all of the original cast with the exception of Barr. Fans and critics wondered how “The Conners” would fare without the actress, but so far, things are looking good for the comedy. In a review of the show’s debut episode on

7:30, TV critic Alan Sepinwall expressed hope for the new incarnation of the series sans the controversial comedian. “There are enough sturdy characters and performances here to move on without her,” wrote Sepinwall, “and the premiere felt more focused than many of the episodes from the spring.” In addition to Goodman, Sara Gilbert (“The Talk”) returns as Dan and Roseanne’s youngest daughter, Darlene, who’s set to take on an even larger role in “The Conners.” Original series star Alicia Goranson (“Boys Don’t Cry,” 1999) is back as the eldest, Becky, and Michael Fishman (“Undrafted,” 2016) once again appears as Roseanne and Dan’s son, D.J. Emmy winner Laurie Metcalf (“The Big Bang Theory”), who was a breakout star of the original show, reprises her role as Roseanne’s flighty sister, Jackie, in “The Conners.” The cast of the new comedy also includes a number of performers who weren’t part of the original series but appeared in last spring’s revival. Emma Kenney (“Shameless”) portrays Darlene’s daughter, Harris Conner-Healy. Ames McNamara (“At Home With Amy Sedaris”) portrays Darlene’s son, Mark. Their father is Darlene’s ex, David, played by Johnny Galecki (“The Big Bang Theory”), who will guest star in the show. Young actress Jayden Rey (“Un-

As far as the ratings go, the debut of “The Conners” performed fairly well against the competition, drawing more than 10 million viewers. The show may not have reached the peak of the revival’s debut ratings last spring, which

Interestingly, the spinoff’s premiere was on par with the spring finale of “Roseanne,” so it looks as if plenty of fans are still interested in the Conners’ story.

By Ryan Guebert TV Media The rivalry that helped drive the narrative forward in David O. Russell’s “Silver Linings Playbook” (2012) is set to feature in Week 10 of the 2018 NFL season as the Dallas Cowboys take on the Philadelphia Eagles for Sunday Night Football. The NFC East rivalry kicks off on Sunday, Nov. 11, at Lincoln Financial Field, where the Eagles were shut out by the Cowboys last year on New Year’s Eve. Tune in to NBC, TSN and CTV Two for live coverage of the action. The Cowboys and Eagles have had struggles this season, with both teams opening with three losses

in the first five games. Week 7 was especially rough as the Cowboys missed an opportunity to send the game against the Washington Redskins into overtime when kicker Dan Bailey’s replacement, Brett Maher, hit the left upright and missed a 52-yard field goal. The Eagles gave up a 17-point lead over the Carolina Panthers and gave up 21 points in the fourth quarter to lose, 21-17. It’s a tight race in the NFC East, and a win over a divisional rival could provide the lead needed to clinch a playoff spot further down the road. The Eagles have felt the impact of running back Jay Ajayi’s absence since his season-ending injury at the beginning of Octo-

Following Dez Bryant and Jason Witten’s departures, the Cowboys have relied on 5-8 wide receiver Cole Beasley to lead the receiving corps in targets and yards. Now, with Amari Cooper joining the Cowboys from the Oakland Raiders, quarterback Dak Prescott should have more options to throw to, bringing the Cowboys ever closer to being playoff contenders. Catch one of the biggest rivalries in sports history when the Eagles host the Cowboys for Sunday Night Football on Sunday, Nov. 11.

Today, President Trump met with Kanye West at the White House. Incredible. If you told me 10 years ago that Trump and Kanye would be meeting at the White House, I would’ve said, “Oh my God — Kanye becomes president?!” That’s right, Trump met with Kanye West at the White House. And while they spoke, both Trump and Kanye’s assistants looked at each other and said, “Man, I thought MY boss was nuts.”

According to a former Yale classmate, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh once set off a bar fight in college after confusing another patron for the lead singer of the band UB40. And if you have any idea who that is, you also be 40. The White House announced today that President Trump will donate his second quarter salary to the Small Business Administration. And Trump knows a thing or two about how to run a small business. “Step one: start by inheriting a large business.”

Week of November 12

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Keep your feelings to yourself as you work through an awkward circumstance. Complaining is useless, and also unwise since your words could come back to haunt you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A sudden flash of Bovine practicality shows you how you might be able to turn your artistic pursuits into a profitable venture. A spouse or partner offers some sage advice. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be prepared with several “Plan Bs” that you might have to use as backups just in case you encounter some troublesome complications with your carefully constructed schedule. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might think you’ll never have a free moment again with the demands of the workplace piling on. Cheer up. The pressure eases as holiday time nears. An old friend brings good news. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Your Leonine pride might make it difficult to offer an apology to a co-worker you unintentionally offended. But a quick and sincere “I’m sorry” could prevent problems down the line. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) This is a good time to tackle those backed-up chores that have kept you from moving into other, potentially more worthwhile projects. A personal matter needs your attention. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You usually have no problem rushing to the defense of someone you perceive as being

(c) 2018 Features Synd., Inc. treated unjustly. ButKing perceptions could be deceiving this week. Check the facts before you act. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Before you point fingers at who might be to blame for the unexpected change in your plans, take a few moments to reflect on how this turn of events might be a blessing in disguise. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You seek out advice in the first part of the week. But be careful not to let counsel from others overshadow your own sense of perception. Things become clearer by the week’s end. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) The trusted colleagues you relied on earlier continue to offer support with your project. But you take more control, and by the week’s end, you should be in full command. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Rely on your practical side while exploring investment possibilities. Caution is still your watchword in these matters. Your social life takes a gratifying turn by the week’s end. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) An already confusing situation appears to grow murkier during the first part of the week. But it all starts to clear by the week’s end. Plan to spend the weekend with someone special.

BORN THIS WEEK: You have a passion for life that inspires others to follow your example. You could be a motivational speaker
