KBRH HEALTH FOUNDATION

Fundraising goal hits halfway mark The Trail hospital that much closer to having digital mammography with stereotactic capabilities

School district to cough up more cash for sick days Other purchases will be put on hold, says SD20 superintendent

BY VALERIE ROSSI Times Staff

The Trail hospital is moving toward advanced equipment to deliver testing for women in the Kootenay Boundary who have a history of breast cancer or current symptoms. The Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital (KBRH) Health Foundation has just raised half of the $950,000 needed to replace its 11-yearold film mammography machine with a digital mammography with stereotactic capabilities. “I’ve been a mammography technician for 25 years so all of this is very personal,” said Sue DeRosa, head of digital imaging at KBRH. Her mom, Rita Holmes of Rossland, was diagnosed with breast cancer 11 years ago when an abnormality was picked up during a screening while her sister Gillian Minchuk, who lives on the Coast, was diagnosed nine years ago when she found a lump on her breast. Her mom managed to rid the cancer after a lumpectomy and radiation but her sister went through a more trying process. “It was quite a shock,” said DeRosa, noting that her sister had a lumpectomy, mastectomy, radiation and chemotherapy but despite all of her efforts the disease came back in her bones. Special treatment then kept it at bay for about two years before it came back in her brain. After brain surgery to remove the tumor and radiation, Minchuk joined her mom as a cancer survivor. A mammography exam is

This state-of-the-art machine will not only support diagnostic imaging but also general surgical practice at the Trail hospital. Stereotactic biopsy capabilities means patients may be able to have a needle biopsy instead of invasive surgery to diagnose a breast lump. “These biopsies are done in the mammography room instead of the OR, which means a faster recovery and reduced pressure on our OR,” explained Thalia Vesterback, Interior Health regional manager of diagnostic imaging. “Some patients will still require surgery but it means more options for surgeons and their patients.”

REASONS TO BE A MEMBER.

The accepted gold standard of care in breast imaging produces high-resolution images that can be sent electronically to another facility when a second opinion is needed from other radiologists, surgeons or oncologists. “Specialists’ opinions are now only a click way,” explained Lisa Pasin, KBRH Health Foundation director. “This is important in our mountainous, rural remote setting.” Mammography is the last imaging modality in KBRH’s medical imaging department to move to digital but filmbased systems will still be an integral part of imaging service for some time to come. “This is in keeping with our computer-based world,” said Vesterback. “Just as filmbased cameras have been replaced with digital cameras,

we are doing the same in diagnostic imaging.” The Trail Hospital Auxiliary just donated $10,000 to the cause, bringing its total contribution up to $70,000, and topping the Health Foundation’s goal to the half mark of $480,000. The Health Foundation has received widespread support for its campaign, reaching generous residents across the Kootenay Boundary, but it’s still plugging away in hopes of reaching its objective by 2013. Formerly called the Trail Regional Hospital Foundation, the Health Foundation has raised over $10.6 million to advance health care in the Kootenay Boundary since 1988. The Foundation’s revenue is generated through donations from private and corporate donors.

Sick days for staff continue to plague the school district as it now faces a further hit to its current budget. An extra $150,000 might have to be absorbed into School District 20’s (Kootenay Columbia) current budget as substitute expenditures keep climbing. With only 15 per cent of the budget left ($148,000) and around $400,000 expected to pay substitute staff to cover for illness and other leaves of absence in the next four months, SD20’s board of trustees got a grim look Monday night at their regular monthly meeting at Blueberry School at how the books will be balanced this year. The substitute expenditures mean some planned school district purchases will be put on hold, said SD20 superintendent of schools, Greg Luterbach, noting there was some money in the budget to replace vehicles for the district’s maintenance crew, as well as buy some new computers. “They will be on hold until we see how we are going to balance the budget,” Luterbach said. “So there are going to be some unhappy people … because we are going to have to use that money to balance this year’s budget.” This is of serious concern, he added, considering how the expenditure is affecting other areas of the district’s operation. The total substitute expenditure for February was over $110,000. For the year the district had budgeted around $1.02 million, or $83,000 per month. Trustee Gordon Smith asked what the average age for a teacher was in SD20. He cited a recent comment from Kootenay Columbia Teachers Union representative Andy Davidoff that the local union contained the oldest complement of teachers in the province. Provincial statistics show the KCTU is the second oldest at an average of 48 years, said Luterbach. “But over the last four years our teaching force has gotten two years younger,” he said

Call it raiders of the lost art. The shout has been put out for those who have the brass to bring their lungs and musical wherewithal to the stage and strut their stuff with the Swingsations. The Trail-based big band is in need of two trombone players to apprentice with some of the best in the game, to learn the vanishing technique of the telescoping instrument from them before they disappear. The musicianship in the Swingsations is becoming a lost art form, said Swingsations trumpet player Martin David, and with some of those players set to retire, that knowledge of trombone, saxophone and trumpet could be lost forever. “There has to be something we can pass on to a younger generation. I mean, we need to take advantage of what we got with them right now,� he said recently. “But we need to create another generation of big band lovers and swing lovers to do that kind of thing.� David pointed to veteran players such as Jackie Vellutini, 94, and Lorne De Paolis, who played with virtuoso solo trumpeter Rafael Mendez when he played in Trail years ago — and was offered a touring gig with the best trumpet player in the world — as some of the band’s musical mentors. “That is some of the caliber of the guys who are actually playing in there,� said David. “These guys can really play, they have it with them.� There’s a wealth of talent on the 16-piece outfit led by band leader Clark White, said David, but with

school band programs being curtailed and cut at many West Kootenay schools, there aren’t as many musicians filtering about to fill the void. That fact has significantly hampered the band’s ability to keep filling positions in the four-person trombone section, as well as a fourperson trumpet section and a similar complement in the saxophone section. In addition to a keyboardist, vocalist, bass player, drummer and guitar player, the Swingsations offer a full sound, one that has filled the aural passageways of people as far away as Calgary since the band first formed in the 1960s. Playing the same music as Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Guy Lombardo and Glenn Miller the band was once known as the Novatones, changing the name to Swingsations under the leadership of White in the late 1990s. The Swingsations came into being during the rebirth of the big band and swing sound in the 1990s and into the 2000s, sporting swing, jazz, rock, polka, waltz, rumba and tango in their repertoire. The Swingsations play around six gigs per year, and practice every Sunday at 6:30 p.m. at the Legion Hall in Trail. For a glimpse of what big band music is like, or to see if you have what it takes to play, you can check out the Swingsations on April 14 at K.P. Hall (above Shoppers Drug Mart). Tickets are available at Mallard’s Source for Sports in Castlegar and the Trail Coffee and Tea Company for $15. For those interested in joining the band, contact Clark White at 367-6115.

Government should lead by example

T

oday the federal government presents its fiscal budget. Perhaps it’s an indication of my age or my job as editor but suddenly a fiscal budget makes me sit up and take notice. I have no formal training in studying numbers, like most Canadians. And I don’t know what the immediate ramifications are of many national economic decisions. But there is one thing I would like to hear in a budget. For once, at the national level, I would like a government to lead by example. It doesn’t have to be a big thing. It simply has to be an indication that if times are tough, they’re giving up something as well as the rest of the citizens. Following on a recent letter to the editor in Wednesday’s edition, in today’s climate nothing would be better than the government of the day

pledging to reduce their juicy pension package. The numbers are too staggering for most of us to imagine. According to reports, “MPs are eligible to take home half of their $157,000 per year salaries starting at 55 as pensions and receive benefits as long as they serve for six years.” I can’t think of any normal job in the world that offers that kind of package. Instead of having Finance Minister Jim Flaherty tell Canada that cuts will be felt by ordinary Canadians who will lose their jobs, their benefits or their services, he should be telling what cuts will be felt on Parliament Hill first. Offering up MPs pensions as a sacrificial lamb might temporarily alleviate the focus on the opulent spending surrounding the crime bill or fighter jets. But perhaps that’s too simple.

GUY

BERTRAND Times in Trail Perhaps in today’s world the leadership has to be stern, cold and force the population to swallow its medicine. It’s the old, “this is going to hurt me more than it’s going to hurt you,” ploy. “We’ll all suffer through this together,” they’ll say in their sound bites later today. Funny when I was a kid, medicine was always presented in the nicest way possible. Wash it down with some treat and the benefits of the bitter medicine are smoothed over. It was only a few years

ago that governments would try to camouflage cuts by doling out money to regions just prior to a budget. Even our own provincial government reverted to this tactic prior to its 2012 budget. But that doesn’t seem to be the case here. I know the word “austerity” has existed for centuries but I admit after hearing it kicked around so often in the last few years during the Greek financial crisis, the European Union meltdown and the economic shockwaves sent around the world, that I had to look it up again. It read like an apocalyptic novel blueprint, “cold, stern, devoid of pleasure.” It was the “word of the year,” in 2010, so once again I’m a little out of step. But is this what the world has come to? Flaherty downplayed the use of the word “austerity,” in today’s budget, just like the government downplays the word,

“recession,” when times are tough. Instead he tried to lift our hopes by saying the budget won’t be “austerity-focused.” So for this we should be applauding him? By telling us the budget won’t take away all of our benefits and security, the government is trying to paint itself as the “good guy,” in this entire cost cutting, debt slaying plan. Hard to imagine they would point the economic scalpel in their direction. It’s all about sacrifices that ordinary Canadians have to make. They get to keep their chauffeurs, the exorbitant expense accounts and fat pension plans while the rest must learn to live with a little less in order to get our country on track. For once it would be nice to see the politicians in Ottawa act like a real “good guy,” and take one for the team. Guy Bertrand is the managing editor of the Trail Daily Times

LETTERS & OPINION LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Jumbo decision raises questions The building of the Jumbo Ski Resort near Invermere B.C. has been a hot bed of controversy for a number of years and has finally now, come into fruition. Regretfully, it did so in the affirmative. However, the question still remains as to whether it should be built at all. Is another ski resort really necessary and should our precious wilderness be sacrificed to facilitate its

development? Undoubtedly, there are those that would wring their hands in anticipation of such construction, while there are still others that would shake their heads in sheer disgust. One can’t help wondering though, if the local species could withstand such encroachment. Human pursuit knows no bounds nor Nature such infestation. The deep forest offers sanc-

tuary but not food. If people behave as if alone in the world, they soon will be. While it is true that whatever lives must also die, we sometime forget that Earth is a living planet to hasten its death, would be to hasten our own. Yes, some places are sacred and should be protected. The ill-conceived Jumbo Ski Resort area is one of them! John Kratky, Trail

Sex trade still needs control An editorial from the Waterloo Region Record Local residents were fearful in 2010 that a Superior Court of Ontario ruling that struck down provisions on street solicitation would lead to a proliferation of prostitution in the region’s downtowns. And they had reason to fear. A ruling Monday by the Ontario Court of Appeal effectively puts those particular fears to rest. Solicitation, or communicating for the purposes of prostitution, will remain illegal in Ontario as a result of that Appeal Court ruling, and police will be able to continue doing what they’re doing to control the practice. But there’s a new worry. Residents and municipal governments already concerned about regulating massage parlours in their community could soon find themselves regulating brothels, or bawdy houses, if the Appeal Court ruling stands. Working indoors in a location under their control is the safest way to protect sex workers plying their trade, three of the five appellate court judges ruled, but that is debatable. Either way, implementation of

WEBSITE POLL RESULTS:

the ruling would be at least one year away. That’s the period that the Appeal Court has given the federal government to amend the Criminal Code to comply with the striking down of the bawdy house law. It’s almost certain, however, that an appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada by both Ottawa and the Ontario government will be sought, and any implementation would ultimately hinge on a decision there. At the core of this case, which was launched by a group of sex trade workers, is the safety and protection of those workers. The backdrop to the case was the horrors of the Robert Pickton murders of prostitutes in British Columbia as well as prostitute murders in Alberta. With the exception of the two dissenting voices, the Appeal Court also found that members of neighbourhoods surrounding areas of prostitution are impacted in a real way by that activity (and drug dealing and violence often associated with it), so a ban on solicitation is reasonable. But what about the neighbourhoods where brothels would be located? How much

of a regulatory nightmare would this be for municipalities? What additional stresses would be placed on already overstrained bylaw enforcers and public health officials who would be required to monitor these operations? More important, just how much protection would be afforded to marginalized sex trade workers, those who wouldn’t be controlling their work environment but would have it controlled for them? What of the vulnerable, destitute, ill women who are in no position to hire bodyguards or receptionists to shield or screen them from harm from male clients? What new protections are extended to them through Monday’s ruling? It’s little wonder the Canadian Association of Sexual Assault Centres and the Native Women’s Association of Canada pleaded with the Appeal Court to maintain current Criminal Code sanctions on prostitution. It’s doubtful that expanding access to prostitution - and rolling out legalized bawdy houses would do just that - would ensure that things would be safer for every member of our community.

Captain Chris Derochie, 21, missed on this try but led the Beaver Valley Nitehawks to a Game 1 KIJHL final win over Kelowna Chiefs Wednesday. The Hawks beat the visitors 4-2 and will face off again tonight at the B. V. Arena at 7 p.m.

Beaver Valley strikes first in final BY JIM BAILEY Times Sports Editor

Game 1 of the KIJHL final was a tepid affair, with both teams testing opposition waters, but in the end the Beaver Valley Nitehawks picked up the pace and skated to a 4-2 win over the Kelowna Chiefs. The Nitehawks netted the winner after Justin Niminiken, Tyler Collins and Max Flanagan forechecked hard in the Chiefs end, forcing a turnover. Niminiken picked up the puck at the hash marks and blasted a shot on goal, Collins jumped on the rebound and banged it home to make it 3-1 with 11:45 to play in the second period.

As anticipated the first period was a bit tentative and despite three power plays for each side, neither team generated many good scoring opportunities. The Nitehawks opened the scoring in the first when Chris Derochie dug the puck out of the corner and sent a cross-ice pass to Dallas Calvin. Number 22 waited, then cooly fed Martin in the slot. The rookie wasted no time snapping the puck behind Chiefs goalie Tyler O’Donnell to make it 1-0 with just under four minutes to play in the opening period. The Chiefs tied the game 37 seconds into the second period on their own man advan-

tage. As they worked the puck tight to the goal, Dane Rupert chipped in a rebound over Hawk goalie Mike Vlanich. Minutes later, Vlanich made a senstational save sliding across and robbing Chiefs’ Scott Renner with a blocker. The save seemed to spark the Hawks. After a face off in the Chiefs end Craig Martin passed to Derochie in the slot who feathered a gift to Edwards at the side of the open net to make it 2-1. However, the Chiefs answered back. Catching the Nitehawks on a change, Landon Andrusiak slid a pass to Rupert on a 2 on 1, and the former Nelson Leaf fired it top

corner for his second of the night with 21 seconds to go in the middle frame. Vlanich again bailed them out with a couple break-away saves in the third period to keep it at 3-2, until Derochie iced it with an empty netter to make it 4-2. When asked whether assistant coach Jeremy Cominotto was satisfied with the win, he replied: “I’m not satisfied with it all. It was a disappointing effort. When you’re on a stage like the league final, you expect to be a lot better. We’ll be expecting a lot more tomorrow and we’ll get it.” Game 2 goes tonight at the Beaver Valley Arena at 7 p.m.

The sessions will also give coaching staff a jump on next season and future Smoke Eaters a chance to impress.

The snowboard contest that brought 18 of the world’s best snowboarders to Nelson will be airing on NBC this Saturday. The world will be able to tune in at 10 a.m. to see Travis Rice’s Red Bull Supernatural event hosted at Baldface Lodge in February. Snowboarding superstar Travis Rice and his snowboarder associates set up at Baldface Lodge earlier this year and when conditions were perfect they set themselves loose on the most diverse snowboard contest venue ever created. Fans watching the two hour snowboard competition will be able to use the Shazam Application on their mobile phones to access exclusive point-of-view footage from the event as well. Another event in the Red Bull Signature Series, the Red Bull Cold Rush, aired last Saturday. The threeday backcountry freeskiing competition was held earlier this month in Silverton, Colorado, and similar to Rice’s Supernatural event, crowned the world’s best in the sport. While short clips of each event had been released prior to the NBC televised events to pique the appetite of viewers, last week’s airing of Cold Rush should be an indication that Nelson’s Freeride Entertainment, who filmed both events, have plenty of jaw dropping footage to keep eyes glued to the screen.

F r e e r i d e Entertainment is a key part of bringing the Red Bull Signature Series to viewers. “It’s definitely a great opportunity for us and it’s an honour to be a part of the Signature Series in such a capacity,” said Jonnie Broi, producer and director for the Nelson-based film company. “We’ve been a part of some of Red Bull’s most successful marketing concepts since the beginning such as Red Bull Rampage, Cold Rush, Crashed Ice to X-Fighters… We’ve been very successful at keeping them very happy and excited about what we create.” The Red Bull Signature Series is a 25-event showcase of what the world’s best in snowboarding, skiing, motocross, mountain biking and more have to offer. Throughout the year, NBC will be airing each of the Red Bull events for the world to see. Broi, a Nelson local, said that this kind of exposure to Nelson brings in an influx of tourists searching for unforgettable experiences, which has a spin-off effect for the businesses here and the notoriety of the town. “We are very proud to be based out of Nelson, we speak very highly of this town,” said Broi. “Most production companies that have reached the level that we’ve reached are based out of Vancouver, Montreal, Toronto or L.A. whereas we choose Nelson because of the lifestyle and how great of a place this is.”

The race to an imperfect playoff format Phoenix (87 points apiece) for a division crown and the No. 3 seed in the playoffs. That would put the champion ahead of Detroit, Nashville and Chicago, who all have cracked the 90-point total. Those three teams play in the Central Division and lag behind leader St. Louis. In the NHL, teams can get rewarded with home ice even with a worse record and fewer points than their opponent. Does this need to be fixed? Is there another way? If the players have any say, the bugs in the playoff format need to be addressed. “I hope they do evaluate it because it’s antiquated,� Sabres goalie Ryan Miller said. The NHL has this system because of an unbalanced schedule that forces teams to play their division rivals six times and non-division rivals four times. The league also wants to make division races matter over the course of the grueling 82-game season. That doesn’t matter to some players, who believe the best teams should start with the weaker ones in the post-season, same as other leagues. Not that it necessarily matters (i.e., Duke vs Lehigh in the NCAA tournament). “Why not look at strength of schedule,� said Miller, a member of the NHL’s competition committee. “You can almost do like an NCAA thing where, at the end of the year, everybody ranks how

you did against top-tier teams. But that gets complicated. That’s just my idea. I haven’t heard anybody else talk about it. And I don’t even know if it’s really smart, because we do play everybody.â€? Here’s the real kicker: In the East, the Devils are in great position in sixth place, not the Penguins or Flyers in fourth and fifth. The Devils would open against the Panthers - so the Flyers would be better off losing some of their final games instead of trying to gobble points. The Flyers wouldn’t do that, of course, but this kind of flawed system leads to fans playing with those kinds of conspiracy scenarios. Penguins defenceman Brooks Orpik said. “There’s a reason why that rule’s in place. I mean yeah, it’s been talked about this year where maybe the division winner automatically makes the playoffs but you seed them where they’d be seeded, so Florida would be eighth or seventh, same with Boston. Maybe that’s a better way of doing it.â€? Orpik has the right idea seed teams 1-8 based on points. Based on Wednesday’s standings, the Penguins would open against Ottawa, and the Flyers would start at home against the Panthers. With realignment and a new labour deal looming in the NHL, the system could hit the scrap heap within two years. “I think that it could fix it,â€? Penguins forward Steve Sullivan said. “I think TRAIL MINOR BASEBALL they’re going to tweak the system so there’s EGISTRATION VALUATION going to be less divisions.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The top three teams in Eastern Conference are listed in their proper order in the Atlantic Division. The New York Rangers. The Pittsburgh Penguins. The Philadelphia Flyers. There’s no denying those three teams have been the class of the conference this season. The Rangers will likely get their just reward for finishing first: The No. 1 seed in the playoffs and home ice for as many rounds as they’re alive chasing the Stanley Cup. Fair enough. The Flyers and Penguins? Well, if the regular season ended Wednesday, they’d play each other in the first round, and the Flyers would have to trudge their 96-and-counting point total to Pittsburgh for Games 1 and 2 - and, of course, Game 7, if needed. Not so fair. But that’s just the way it is in the NHL, where division winners are seeded in the top three spots for the post-season ahead of teams with the whopping point totals. In the East, that means division leaders Boston (Northeast; 93 points) and Florida (Southeast; 89 points) are placed ahead of the Penguins (100 points), Flyers and New Jersey Devils (92 points entering Wednesday night) in the playoff race. In the West, Pacific Division leader San Jose (88 points) is trying to hold off Dallas and

LEISURE

Despite lies, try to stay close with little sister Dear Annie: I’m in my mid-20s, and my sister is a junior in high school. “Tina” has always looked up to me as the “cool brother,” and we’ve become buddies. I tell her my issues at work and my troubles with women, and she tells me far more than she does the rest of our family. We’ve grown to trust each other. Last week when the mail arrived, my mother noticed that Tina had received an envelope from the county prison. Inside was a six-page soft-porn letter from a convicted felon who used to date one of Tina’s friends. Mom also discovered that Tina had been accepting long-distance charges on her cell phone from the prison. My parents contacted the authorities, and the man won’t write or call her again. They’ve also grounded Tina for a month. I’m not that hurt by her lies of omission.

She’s just a kid, and I did some fairly stupid things at her age. But now I don’t feel like telling her anything. I’m still nice to her, and we get along like we used to, but I’ve not told her about a few things that have happened in my life recently. Is this an OK way to handle it? -- Need Help in Wisconsin Dear Wisconsin: Tina’s behavior was terribly reckless. And we think you are more than a little upset that she didn’t confide any of this to you and give her big brother the chance to protect her. You don’t have to tell Tina everything. There are things she may be

too young to appreciate. But please try to cultivate the closeness you had before, and let her know you wish she had told you about her correspondence with the inmate. You are in an excellent position to be a positive influence in her life. Dear Annie: My stepson, “Joe,” and his wife have cut off all communication with my husband and me, and we have no idea why. They have two small children of whom we are very fond. We have not seen them in more than a year. It’s possible Joe is punishing his father for some imagined slight, but we have no clue what it could be. We have always been kind, loving and generous to them and continue to send them cards on special occasions. My husband says to let it go. Should we stop trying? There is no one to act as a go-between. They live about five hours

away and continue to visit Joe’s mother and her parents. We miss them very much. -Brokenhearted D e a r Brokenhearted: You do have a go-between: Joe’s ex-wife and her parents. Could you call them and find out what’s going on? Explain how much you miss Joe and his family, and ask what you can do to fix this. It would be a shame to give up without trying every avenue available to you. Dear Annie: “Upstate N.Y. Dad” said that the babysitter took his children on an unauthorized drive to the ice cream store. I agree that she was extremely irresponsible, but your response that the girl “showed terrible judgment, but that is not unusual for a 17-year-old” was a slap in the face for teenagers like me. Many teenagers do wonderful, responsible things in their com-

munity. I organize a program in which musicians from my school go to various retirement centers and play for the elderly. I tutor every Wednesday. I bring home straight A’s and do not drink, party or smoke.

That girl wasn’t irresponsible because she was 17. She’s irresponsible because she was raised by a parent who has no dignity or honesty. -- A Disappointed 15-YearOld Girl Dear Disappointed:

Brava. We did not mean to give the impression that all teenagers are irresponsible -- only that the maturity to properly judge a situation takes time to develop. Obviously, you are already there. Thanks for sticking up

LEISURE

YOUR HOROSCOPE By Francis Drake For Friday, March 30, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a lovely day to entertain at home or to explore real-estate deals. Whatever you do will make your home and family life feel richer. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a very good day for those of you in sales, marketing, teaching and writing. Your enthusiasm and positive frame of mind will carry the day! GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Trust your moneymaking ideas today. This is a good day for business and commerce. Some of your ideas could lead to increased earnings in the future. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Admittedly, it’s a mixed bag today; nevertheless, as the day wears on, it gets better and better! Enjoy the friendship of others, especially in group situations.

LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You feel quietly content today. Could this be because you are secretly making big plans behind the scenes? I think you have something exciting up your sleeve. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) This is a very social day for you. Accept all invitations and enjoy the company of others, especially in group situations. Plans for travel or publishing look promising! LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) People in authority notice you today, and see you as someone who is successful and affluent. You might be able to work this to your advantage by asking for something you want. (Ya think?) SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Grab any opportunity to travel today, because you will be delighted. You also might travel via books, film

or meeting people from other cultures and different countries. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Favors from others, plus gifts and goodies, might come your way today. That’s because it appears the world owes you a favor! Keep your pockets open. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Discussions with partners and close friends will

be rewarding and uplifting today. Even exchanges with members of the general public will be satisfying. Get out and meet people! AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Anything that is job-related will just get better and better as the day wears on. In fact, work-related travel is likely. You also might expand your place of work in some way today.

PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Flirtations, parties, vacations and fun events are the order of the day. Yes, there are a few snags, but by evening everything is cozy! YOU BORN TODAY Like most Aries, you are very focused on what you want, and you go after it full steam ahead! Nothing will make you stop once you’ve decided what you want. Because you want to do things your way,

October 1, 1941 - March 29, 2009 God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; the courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him forever in the next.

Amen Forever loved, sadly missed, Family & Friends
