Abused horses fighting for life Michaela Garstin editor@similkameenspotlight.com

Another malnourished horse has been rescued from the same owner in Princeton Peaches’ daughter Cricket is the latest horse to be rescued from an owner in Princeton. She is the fifth starving horse to be saved this month from a man who wasn’t feeding them nearly enough. Peaches - the most malnourished horse - won’t be up for adoption for about eight months, said Joey Tompkins, president of BC Interior Horse Rescue Society. The other three horses will be ready to go

in about four months. “I was scared they were pregnant, but they weren’t. That would have been really bad for their bodies,” Tompkins said. The first four horses were brought in severely underweight on Feb. 15, and were the most neglected the organization has ever seen. Cricket was rescued around a week later. Peaches weighs only 500 pounds - less than half of what she should. The other horses are in similar condition. They are slowly gaining weight, and Tompkins hopes to completely rehabilitate them so they can go to new homes. Babe, Jesse and Peaches like to be around people, but Torrie is more reserved, she said. “She has a lot of mistrust of people. A

lot of that is because she wants to protect herself.” The four horses were severely malnourished when they arrived at the rescue organization. Owners don’t have to physically hurt their horses to abuse them - neglect is abuse too, Tompkins said. Peaches’ body weight was rated 2/10 when the horses were surrendered to the rescue organization. A proper body weight is 5 or 6/10. It will be a slow process to get Torrie to warm up to people, but Tompkins is hopeful. “Today I fed her supplements, and she came up and walked with me. That’s a huge improvement compared to seven days ago.” Horses aren’t fed for financial reasons,

because of a divorce, lack of knowledge or because owners don’t care, Tompkins said. Horses can remember abuse for a long time, especially if something triggers a memory, she said. “People don’t give them the credit they deserve. They’re very smart.” BC Interior Horse Rescue is at full capacity. The maximum number of horses the organization would like to have is 15, but they will be at that number this weekend when two more horses are dropped off. Each horse is matched to a suitable home based on their personalities and how they’ve been trained. Donations to the BC Interior Horse Rescue Society can be made by credit card or PayPal on the organization’s website.

Grueling race to start in Princeton Michaela Garstin editor@similkameenspotlight.com

B.C. athletes will compete in a grueling race from Princeton to Summerland this fall. The Steven King 100 KM Classic Relay and Ultra will kick off in Princeton on Sept. 15 along the Kettle Valley Railway trail. Runners then head to the old Princeton Summerland Highway and continue on to Chain Lakes, where the road turns to gravel until the decent off Bald Range coming into Faulder and then into

Summerland where it finishes in Memorial Park. The route varies in elevation from 845 metres to 1170 metres above sea level with some very steep climbs and descents. Athletes can compete in either the 100 km Ultra Marathon as a solo athlete or work in a team for the relay. This route is also used as the Ultraman Canada running course - a three-day triathlon that tests the endurance of elite triathlon competitors. Registration is now open through the Steven King Classic website.

PSS teachers hold ‘day of action’ Michaela Garstin editor@similkameenspotlight.com

Teachers throughout B.C. held union meetings at lunch hour and demonstrations after school on Monday, in an attempt to forestall an attempt to forestall an imposed contract. “Despite the [BC Teachers’ Federation’s] offer to go to mediation or even arbitration, Education Minister George Abbott has signalled he intends to bring in legislation as

early as possible next week,” the BCTF said in a news release. Union meeting and demonstrations will not cut into class time, the BCTF said. On Feb. 28 and 29 teachers across B.C. will vote on whether to escalate the limited “teach only” job action to a full-scale walkout. Results of the vote will be made public on March 1. “It is clear that this strike is hurting stu-

dents and any escalation in strike action will only increase the harm to students and the impact on parents,” said Abbott. “The union’s demands, which would add $2 billion in costs for B.C. taxpayers, are not acceptable given the current financial reality.” Offering nothing and demanding “deep concessions” completely disrespects the deep commitment teachers bring to their work, said BCTF president Susan Lambert.

“[This] leads us to conclude there was never any intention to bargain a collective agreement,” she said. “We’re worried and upset about the continued damage this government is doing to public education, with at least $100 million in cuts to come next year from inflationary pressures on a flat budget.” Visit the Spotlight’s website at www. similkameenspotlight.com for updates on the teachers’ job action.

Rebates for old wood stoves Michaela Garstin editor@similkameenspotlight.com

Princeton residents who want to get rid of their wood-burning stoves for cleaner units can now save money. From March until the end of April, Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen residents can get a $250 rebate when they replace their old wood stoves with a new EPA/CSA emission-approved wood, gas, pellet or electric appliances. The exchanges will reduce pollution in the area. Only the first 60 exchanges will be given the credit. Participating retailers are also offering a discount of around $150. “In many valley communities in B.C. smoke from wood burning units is the greatest source of

particulate matter next to open burning,” said RSOS chairman Dan Ashton. “Particulate matter is one of the main pollutants that leads to poor air quality and can have serious health impacts.” New EPA wood stoves when operated correctly will reduce smoke pollution by 90 per cent and use one-third less wood, he said. Chimney smoke is a sign of an inefficient burn, producing unnecessary air pollution, and wasting wood. A workshop about efficient burning is taking place in Princeton on March 1 at the Community Skills Centre at 206 Vermilion Ave. The workshop runs from 6:30 to 8:30. An old inefficient wood stove will be compared to the technology of a new wood stove in a live demonstration from 5:30 to 6:30.

Princeton given chance to ďŹ ght back Michaela Garstin editor@similkameenspotlight.com

Princeton lost the Earth Hour challenge to Keremeos last year, but has another chance to prove itself this March. On March 31 at 8:30 p.m. hundreds of millions of people around the world will show their support by turning off their lights for an hour. FortisBC customers dropped their electricity consumption by one per cent last year - the equivalent of turning of 50 thousand light bulbs.

The winner is determined by the number of pledges received per community based on its population. Princeton came in 11th out of 18 communities last year, while Keremeos earned top place. The Keremeos Legion won a $5,000 energy upgrade. A similar prize is up for grabs this year. Earth Hour started in 2007 in Australia with 2.2 million homes and businesses turning their lights off for one hour. Millions of people from more than 135 countries are expected to participate this year.

Drivers wanting snow cleared from downtown streets early in the morning are out of luck. Princeton town council has decided to keep existing priority routes in tact, including emergency and bus routes, hills and intersections. Snow will continue to be removed from downtown on the second day after a snowfall to allow time for additional dump trucks to be hired, said chief administrative officer Patrick Robins in a report to council. Waiting until the second day also gives property owners enough time to clear their sidewalks, he said. If crews remove the snow before sidewalks are cleared, property owners will toss snow back onto curbs, which may create dangerous slippery areas. “Depending on the amount of snowfall, this

may require town crews to remove snow for a second time,â€? Robins said. Clearing snow from priority routes and downtown would require a full public works crew, which is difficult due to sick, banked and vacation time, he said. Hiring private contractors can also be a problem. Using private con“...this may tractors on non-critrequire town ical areas should be avoided due to liability crews to remove issues and the level of snow for a skill required, Robins said. second timeâ€?

SpotlightOPINION

SPCA should look into horse abuse Michaela Garstin editor@similkameenspotlight.com

Another severely malnourished horse was rescued from an owner in Princeton last week (Front page this issue). That’s a total of five horses surrendered from the same man. The SPCA said it would only look into this case if it had received a complaint while the horses were still with the owner. Since the horses are now safe with the BC Interior Horse Rescue Society, the SPCA won’t investigate. But shouldn’t this man face charges? Or at least be warned not to do it again? Even though the five horses aren’t with him anymore, he still starved them over a long period of time. They were just recently taken away - the affects of neglect are still very evident. I realize SPCA staff are overworked, especially when trying to take care of rural communities. The horses are now in good hands, so they focus their attention on animals that are currently in trouble. It’s difficult for them to look at cases that are no longer happening. But this doesn’t punish the owner for his actions. Someone shouldn’t be able to get away with animal abuse just because it happened in the past. Animal abusers who aren’t charged can buy another pet anytime they want. There are no laws against it. Horses are expensive (I said this in my previous editorial). They cost around $350 to look after a month, according to the BC Interior Horse Rescue Society. Don’t forget to add on bills for sick, old or pregnant horses. Expenses associated with raising horses can lead to neglect. Please look into this before you buy one.

YourOPINION

Horse-abuser should be charged Dear Editor, What I would like to know is why the man was not charged. He has been know to the Penticton SPCA in the past. Since the horses have found new homes, it means he is off the hook. I am sorry that doesn’t cut it. There are pictures to prove what happened to them. This wouldn’t have hap-

pened if they were cared for the way they should of been. I am tired of hearing this poor man is going though a divorce. He has been using this for some time and to be honest his wife should be held accountable for this too. She was the one who brought them home knowing full well her husband wasn’t an animal person and she left him, and she didn’t seem to care or try

and find them homes herself. It was the horses who paid the price because no one cared enough except for a person who tried feeding them and to find them homes to the best she could do. At the beginning he tried selling the horses and of course no one wanted to buy any of them. Then he tried giving them away and this is where I once

again got to see them in the sad shape they are in. If he can’t be charged at least the law should be able to stop him from ever having another animal again. People like this make me sick. Remember all animals have the right to fresh water food and vet attention if needed. Maureen White Princeton

Vandals may not have mental capacity to think Dear Editor, China Ridge Trails Society is such a fortunate organization. After many years of hard work and planning, a facility at the trailhead known as The Longhouse was built. It is a facility that is open to the public that benefits the community. We cross country skiers certainly have enjoyed the benefits of having a warm place to come to after a long day of

skiing before heading down the hill. That is why it is so incomprehensible why anyone would want to vandalized it. Yet, that is exactly what happened on Saturday night, Jan. 28. Some very irresponsible young people decided that this facility was their “playhouse”. They had a bush party there and left litter that took two hours to clean up. When we arrived there on

Sunday morning, even though it had been cleaned, the place reeked of alcohol. Apparently, windows were taken out, tables and benches were thrown around and the solar panels on the outside had been smashed. The latter was a deliberate act because a picnic table had been moved next to the wall and logs placed on top of it to reached the panels - a wilful act of destruction. Who are these

people? What motivates them to take something good and make it bad, worthless...? Do they ever think of the consequences of their actions? The key word here is think. Perhaps, they don’t have the mental capacity to do this. Young people like this need to remember that such actions hurt them because they too are part of the community. Mary Masiel Princeton

Senior girls win Okanagan Valley Championships Contributed editor@similkameenspotlight.com

The PSS senior girls basketball will be heading to the provincial championships in Prince George.

The Princeton Secondary senior girls basketball team won the Okanagan Valley Championships that were held in Enderby on Feb. 23 and 24. The first place finish clinched a berth in the provincial championships played in Prince George from March 7 to 10. “We had set a goal to make it to the provincials and the girls have done it. They have worked so hard to improve all year and to be the best they can be,” said coach Rob Marshall. “I am really proud of them.” Princeton played Ashcroft in their opening game and won 78 to 37. Top scorers were Ciara Bamford with 27 points, Angela Marshall with 16 points and Julia Reichert with 12 points. A strong game was played by Courtney Hassell, who earned the defensive player of the game. The Crawford triplets (Hannah, Mia and Kelsey) also played strong games, although Mia received a knee injury which put her on the bench for the rest of the tournament. In the semi-final, the Rebels defeated Immaculata from Kelowna by a score of 66 to 43. A tenacious zone defence and a wellrounded offence was led by Julia Reichert’s 22 points, Ciara Bamford’s 14 points and Angela Marshall’s 13 points. Kirsten Haayer was awarded the defensive player of the game for her outstanding defensive play.

Unfortunately, Hannah Crawford also sustained a leg injury in this game and she had to watch from the sidelines with her sister. In the championship game the Rebels came out flying against the Kelowna Christian Knights. The Rebels jumped into an early lead and never looked back and ended up defeating Kelowna by a score of 57 to 26. Top scorers were Angela Marshall (14), Julia Reichert (12), Ciara Bamford (12), Kirsten Haayer (5), Courtney Hassell (5) and Morgan Reichert (4). Both Brianna Musgrove and Amy Brewer also rebounded well and played great defence. The Rebels were awarded the cham“We had set a pionship trophy which was acceptgoal to make ed by the Grade it to the 12 players on the provincials and team.

The win qualified the Rebels to play in the provincial championships and they will enter the tournament as one of the top seeds. “Princeton should be proud of the Rebels. This team is recognized as one of the top girl’s teams in B.C. and it is a credit to all the people who support the Princeton basketball program,” said assistant coach Colleen Stevens.

Cyber-bullying: you’re not as anonymous as you think

How to detect and stamp out workplace bullying

It’s aggression. Bullying, even cyber-bullying is too tame a term for some of the attacks being carried out over the Internet, an expert in the field told senior students at Frances Kelsey Secondary School on Feb. 15. It may have been the day after Valentine’s Day but there was nothing sweet about the message from Darren Laur, a senior Victoria police officer who also operates a company offering personal safety training. He had a warning for those that think they can get away with hidden attacks: you’re not as secret as you think you are. Right at Frances Kelsey, Laur discovered a small group who were using Twitter as an attack weapon. He mentioned this several times during his presentation, saying that it would be a really good idea to stop that immediately. “Because, if anyone does themselves an injury because of this I promise you I will come after you and bring you before the courts. And I will find you. You can see that I can,” he said. The other side of social networking is that young people are beginning to use cyberspace to look after each other, becoming “digital first responders.” They’re assisting law enforcement professionals who are sick and tired of dealing with this kind of attack by keeping people such as Laur in the loop, he said. Four girls in Nanaimo have been charged following an incident in a mall parking lot last year where they beat up another girl and then posted a video of their work on YouTube. Laur said he heard about that incident from many teens in Nanaimo that he’d met through his presenta-

As a turnaround strategist, I see a lot of companies in dire straits, where tempers flare easily and interpersonal problems have been allowed to flourish unchecked. Helping clients innovate while saving their companies frequently involves confronting a bully or bullying regime. In twenty years of experience, I’ve learned the differences between hard-charging bosses and executives who push for positive organizational results aggressively, and bullies who calculate patterns of fear to manipulate self-serving outcomes. We have to start by defining the problem. Workplace bullying is defined commonly as individuals or groups who use aggressive or unreasonable tactics against co-workers or subordinates persistently. Bullying is not conflict, a personality clash, or being chewed out by a boss. It’s not getting handed work you don’t want to do. And it’s important to remember that not every workplace-bullying claim is true — just because employees are upset, imbalanced, or overworked does not mean bullying is taking place. But whether it’s an entrenched dinosaur or extreme ladder-climber, anyone who manipulates selfish outcomes or seeks unfair advantage must be confronted expediently. Bullies are tremendously expensive for corporations in terms of productivity and human resource talents lost. When C-suites overlook blatant bullying, work is sabotaged, progress is blocked, and company value may be lost or stolen. I coined the acronym “CAPE” to provide workplaces with a framework to distinguish more fairly between well-meaning hard chargers and sinister bullies. CAPE empowers heroic workplace leaders to eliminate bullying more effectively. 1. Confront. Addressing the problem is a key first step toward breaking the bully’s hold over officemates. Research suggests the longer bullying persists, the more likely co-workers will align with them and enable bullying patterns. Impromptu meetings with a roundtable of diverse professionals — to interview suspected bullies, enablers, and victims separately — allows those far-removed and close to the situation to gather truthful evidence quickly. An out-of-the-blue intervention catches potential bullies off guard, initiates witnessing, and gives hard chargers a fair chance — for once. 2. Analyze. Once granular evidence is gathered, the roundtable should employ contemporary bullying frameworks and literature for thorough anal-

tions. With his investigative background, he was able to find the girls and get that information into the hands of the authorities, who then were able to charge all four. “Enough is enough,” he said. So what kinds of bullying go on online? A popular sort is various kinds of polls such as: Who’s the ugliest guy? Who’s the sluttiest girl? Some people want to show off, or are seeking validation, love drama or want to get even. Occasionally, students are even involved in committing crimes. “In some places, I’ve had to have RCMP outside the door to pick up students,” said Laur. He’s intervened and saved several young people from taking their own lives but it’s not possible to reach everyone who’s bullied. Just about the hardest thing a police officer has to do is visit a home to tell parents their child has committed suicide because of a pitiless attack “by some coward behind a keyboard,” he said. He said he hates to hear anyone calling it bullying because “it’s really peer aggression by a hostile group.” Attacks can also appear in texts, can involve password stealing, blogs or hate pages. Some attackers even get others to do it for them, he said, urging anyone who finds him or herself a target to resist the urge to hit back. Ignore it, restrict access, block senders, young. report to your Internet server because that can often shut a perpetrator down, he said. Save everything as evidence. Copy, screencapture or otherwise ensure you’ve stored every bit. And finally, take legal action, Laur said.

ysis and fair deliberation. Valerie Cade offers a self-test that individuals and workplaces can begin to use analytically. At this point, if the suspected bully responds positively to the roundtable’s deliberation — via 180-degree change and public apology — these first two steps may prevent over-eager hard chargers from being falsely labeled workplace bullies. However, if a suspected bully responds negatively to the process, these next steps become exceptionally critical. 3. Present. Documented proof of bullying, presented in writing after steps one and two, is a giant leap towards engaging leadership with tangible evidence and roundtable witnesses. Don’t rely on hearsay. Wellpresented documentations have teeth. Dr. Namie of The Workplace Bullying Institute fervently argues one cannot negotiate, mediate, or engage in conflict resolution with bullies. 4. Expose. Outing bullies and their enablers courageously is the most important tool for eliminating bullying. Corporate bullies use fear of consequence as a main weapon to keeping victims and enablers silent. Once exposed, bullying regimes vaporize. Once bullying is exposed, I recommend a forensic accounting audit. Some bullies are reacting to their own insecurity or incompetence, but others may be using the irrational claims, false evaluations, humiliation, fear, and other instruments of a bully’s trade to cover up malfeasance, embezzlement or other illegal actions. Confronting bullies isn’t easy. Growing up, we moved a lot and I was often bullied. As a lifelong rugby player, a sport played sans pads, helmets, blockers, or whining, I learned that sometimes, you have to take the pitch fearlessly knowing your job is going to hurt — you have to forge ahead and play hard anyway. I still think about lessons learned with my rugby teammates when I have to deal with a particularly nasty office bully. Job expectations are more challenging and competitive than ever. And tough assignments can hurt. But bullying has no place in any workplace. Honorable opponents shake hands and even applaud each other at the end of the day. Leaders owe it to the people on their team to Confront, Analyze, Present, and Expose bullies fully.

Bullying makes those bullied feel alone and empty...

10 solutions to bully proof your kids Bullying is always intentional, mean-spirited, rarely happens only once and the victim cannot hold his own. It is not teasing. If this is happening to your child, please know that your son or daughter is not alone. By some estimates, one in seven American schoolchildren is either a bully or a victim. Reports confirm that bullying is starting at younger ages and is far more frequent and aggressive than ever before. While you can’t always be there to step in and protect your child there are ways to help your son or daughter be less likely to be victimized. I reviewed hundreds of studies to find tips for educators and parents and wrote a proposal to end school violence that became SB1667. I learned that bullying is learned and it also is preventable. We are waiting too late to teach our kids critical skills to help them be less likely to be targeted. There is no one sure-proof solution so experiment and find what works best for your child’s situation. Here are some of the best tips to help bully-proof your child. Start the talk now! So start talking to your child about bullying before it ever happens. Tell your child you are always available and recognize it is a growing problem. You want your child to come to you and not suffer in silence. Stop rescuing. Children need practice to speak up and be assertive so when the moment comes that they do need to stand up to a bully, they can. Always rescuing can create the conditions under which a child can become a victim. Avoid areas where bullies prey. Bullying usually happens in unsupervised adult areas such as hallways, stairwells, playgrounds (under trees and equipment, in far corners), lockers, parks and bathrooms in places such as malls, schools, parks and even libraries. Teach your child about “hot spots” (places most likely to be frequently by bullies), and then tell him to avoid those areas. Offer specific tips. Most kids can’t handle

bullying on their own: they need your help, so provide a plan. For instance, if bullying is happening on the bus tell your child to sit behind the bus driver on the left side where the driver can see passengers in the mirror, ask an older kid to “watch out” for your child, or offer to pick your child up from school. Teach assertiveness. Kids less likely to be picked on, use assertive posture. Stress to your child that he should stand tall and hold his head up to appear more confident and less vulnerable. Practice. Practice. Practice! Stay calm and don’t react. Bullies love knowing they can push other kids’ buttons, so tell your child to try to not let his tormentor know he upset you. Teach a firm voice. Stress to your child that if he needs to respond, simple direct commands work best delivered in a strong determined voice: “No.” “Cut it out.” “No way.” “Back off.” Then walk away with shoulders held back. Get help if needed. Tell your child to walk towards other kids or an adult. Find a supportive companion. Kids who have even one friend to confide in can deal with bullying better than those on their own. Is there one kid your child can pair up with? Is there a teacher, nurse, or neighbor he can go to for support? You may need to go to the teacher and principal and advocate! Don’t make promises. You may have to protect your child, so make no promises to keep things confidential. You may have to step in and advocate. Do so if ever your child’s emotional or physical safety is at stake. Please! Repeated bullying causes severe emotional harm and erodes fragile self-esteem. No child should ever have to deal with such cold-blooded cruelty.

Princeton boy dedicates life to hockey ing to use it more effectively as the season has progressed.” Lane mainly socializes with the other members of his team because he is rarely home long enough to hang out with friends in Princeton. But the Junior Vees are being rewarded for their hard work and commitment. They won their league play over Kelowna, Trail, Kamloops, Westside and Salmon Arm. They have since been presented a banner for winning league play, which will be hung at Penticton Memorial Arena. The team also won tournaments against the North Delta Raiders and the Trail Smoke Eaters. They will soon have another chance to show their skills against the best Tier 2 teams in B.C.

Princeton resident Lane French has dedicated his life to hockey, spending around 17 hours a week travelling to Penticton and back for practices and games. The 12-year-old was recruited to the Penticton Junior Vees during this hockey season. “Three practice sessions a week in Penticton, along with weekend games, have developed into a big commitment for Lane,” said his father Ty French. After each practice or game, Lane is on the road an hour or more after his teammates are home relaxing. Lane has to be in Penticton by 6:30 a.m. some days of the week. “Thankfully his teachers have been very supportive of his school work missed due to out-of-town travel,” French said. “He still manages to get As and Bs, except in art.” The young hockey player is one of the only Princeton boys on a Penticton rep team, playing at the Tier 2 level.

Arts Council gears up for busy year Contributed editor@similkameenspotlight.com

The Princeton Community Arts Council in collaboration with the recreation department and the schools is gearing up for an exciting Arts and Culture Week from April 21 to 28. This province-wide event is an opportunity to showcase local talent, provide educational opportunities for all ages and simply have fun. It will begin with a weekend adult watercolour class with Vernon artist Gail Short. To register contact Elaine Rutherford at 250-295-6905. Further information will be available from Nadine McEwen at 250-295-6067. Following the huge success of the Upper Similkameen Indian Band and the Arts Council “Spirit Festival” in 2011, planning is underway to

make this an annual event. Again collaboration was the key to the event and the co-ordinator Vicky Jones is working closely with the band, the schools and Robin Irwin at the museum. The Arts Council is hoping to co-ordinate a gazebo concert series this summer and will be involved in the Rick Hansen celebration. For more information contact Marjorie Holland at 250-295-6718. The Arts Council has been nominated for an Okanagan Arts Award and described as a regional champion as we continue to work hard for our community. Program details may be found in the leisure guide or check out the webpage princetonarts.ca The next general meeting will be at 4.30 p.m. on March 21 at the Riverside Centre.

SpotlightLIFESTYLES

Fishing, bears, bees and blackberry pie My first month in Port Renfrew turned out to be a rather exciting four weeks. I met some loggers who were also fisherman and got to go on a fishing trip the morning I arrived there. The tide was coming in and the fishing was good. We caught six salmon and then ran out of gas. There was no choice but to paddle ashore five miles from the little village. And walk back home. As it turned out we were lucky. There is a strong current in the Straight of Juan de Fuca, and we could have landed on the far side of the straight. As well as that it often blew up in the straight and got pretty rough. The second thing I found out about Port Renfrew was the incredible amount of blackberries that grew in the hills around the village.They not only grow in profusion but they were the most flavourful berries I have

ANSWER TO PUZZLE NO. 339

HOW TO PLAY: Fill in the grid so that every row, every column, and every 3x3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9 only once. Each 3x3 box is outlined with a darker line. You already have a few numbers to get you started. Remember: You must not repeat the numbers 1 through 9 in the same line, column, or 3x3 box.

PISCES: Projects around the house wrap up, making way for a hobby. Time to clean out the closets and get cracking, Pisces. A new face proposes an old idea with a twist. ARIES: Drop the pretense, Aries. Your body language is giving you away. Say what’s on your mind and you’ll be surprised at what happens next. TAURUS: Try as you might, Taurus, you won’t be able to fool others, much less yourself, for long. Face up to your limitations, work within them and all will go well. GEMINI: Gracious Gemini. You give, and you give, and you give some more, but these days, it seems like no one is giving back. CANCER: Pay them no heed, Cancer. Keep pursuing your idea, and you will prove to those naysayers that you’re on to something great. An order is completed. LEO: You’re the comeback kid this week, Leo. You manage to finish all of those tasks gone sour and take on more than your fair share of new responsibilities. VIRGO: Your genius side kicks in, and suddenly you’ve got the answers for everything. Enjoy the accolades, Virgo. It’s your turn to shine. An invite makes you giddy. LIBRA: Caution, Libra. You’re veering off course. Take steps now to get back on track or prepare to suffer the consequences. A sporting event takes an unexpected turn. SCORPIO: Relax, Scorpio. A friend has got your back. Keep plugging along on the big picture and let them attend to the minor details. A phone call puts you on cloud nine. SAGITTARIUS: A chilling tale reminds you that some offers are too good to be true. Remember that as you weed through the paperwork on your desk. Something is a-miss, Sagittarius.

SOLUTIONS - Med Pad predictions Cruisers have excellent ride It will be hand held, voice responsive, read your blood work, do your MRIs, scans, X-rays and sensor work, besides answering critical questions Examples:- Med Pad is activated and is asked a question, “My 49-year-old old sweetie is going to work on a skate board wearing a basketball muscle shirt in -7 C weather, a ring in his nose and tongue and sporting a deep purple mohawk hair piece (he’s actually bald). He acts funny and when talking to him he says “butt out.” I’m finding this terribly stressful and a “pain in the butt’’ Med Pad reply - Your sweetie is experiencing a mid-life crises A.K.A. “male menopause,” common among men ages 40 thru 60. This occurs when he feels aging occurring and sees youth slipping by. This clash in the brain causes hot flashes which manifest itself in sweeties peculiar behavior in regaining his youth. This phenomenon can on occasion produce “brain burnout,” which doesn’t last long unless he’s a natural. You can send him to a psychiatrist who might shrink the problem or to a Buddhist monk and they can sit on the problem and meditate it out. The best solution is an ice-cold 20-minute shower three times a day, and your patience, that only a daughter of Eve could endure. As far as sweetie saying “butt out” - forget it. The butt is that part of the human anatomy that you sit on and faces out. Hence the term “butt out.” The fact that you are stressed and have a pain in the butt is not good. Stress can lower the immune system and be the

basis of many illnesses. To relieve it try soaking it in a proper sized container (so as not to get stuck) of warm water laced with “Epsom salts” for an hour for two days. Allergies could be a problem. However the best remedy is a birdwatchers hike to a Coalmont mountain peak and yodel non-stop for at least three hours, twice a week. .It has done wonders for the Swiss. Example question to Med Pad: “ I feel terrible. What are the results of my checkup? Med Pad reply: You need a new heart, two knees, and two hip replacements plus a cataract job and new liver. You’ll be in the body shop for at least seven months, that is if we get all the parts. You should be good till the age 327 when you come up for a warranty checkup. We recommend the spruce wooden heart although there is a slight risk of a dormant spruce worm activating itself. It has a lifetime warranty and we support the forestry industry. And if it’s any consolation when sweetie calls you a worm, it’s justifiable. Because of the mine we do have a copper heart but because copper is so valuable a sweetie could steal your heart away and you’d have to go through life known as the heartless jerk. Certainly not very upbeat. Lastly, watch Doctor Oz or Doctor Art on TV and once a week a Spotlight reader should act as “Health Minister” and publish their solution to a relevant health problem remembering Canada has 250 thousand-plus new immigrants a year to care for.

The winning hand was held by Judi Hassell, 2nd place to Kirk Lensen, 3rd to Don Krenn, 4th to Phil Murdock and 5th place went to James Esner. Any event needs volunteers and the Timberline Cruisers had the absolute best helping to host the riders. To our volunteers, we are grateful and to our riders, we could not have been so successful without your continued support. See you all next year.
