Arrests made in Van Diest case ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Marie Van Diest believes her family can finally direct its anger at a face. The mother of murdered Armstrong teenager Taylor Van Diest was reacting to news that RCMP had arrested not one, but two individuals in connection with the death of her daughter Halloween night, and that a photo of the man suspected of killing her daughter was being released by police. “Today is a day with mixed emotions,” said Marie Van Diest, accompanied by Taylor’s twin sister, Kirstie, and her brother, Paul Albert, after RCMP announced the arrests before a crowd of media, family, friends and politicians, crammed shoulder-to-shoulder, four rows deep, at Armstrong council chambers Thursday afternoon. Insp. Brendan Fitzpatrick, operations officer for B.C. RCMP’s major crime section, told the gallery that two individuals were arrested in connection with the homicide of Taylor Van Diest, 18, Oct. 31, 2011 in Armstrong. Van Diest, who had dressed up in a zombie costume, was found brutally injured near the railway tracks by Rosedale Avenue by family and friends after she failed to meet friends for some Halloween night festivities. She died later that night in Kelowna General Hospital. Fitzpatrick announced that Matthew Stephen Foerster, 26, a former resident of Cherryville, is facing a charge of second degree murder in connection with the death of Van Diest. Fitzpatrick said Foerster was arrested shortly before 11 a.m. Wednesday at a motel in Collingwood, Ont. without incident. Foerster’s father, Stephen Roy Foerster, 58, of Cherryville, has been charged with obstruction of justice and accessory after the fact to murder in connection with Van Diest’s death. He was arrested Wednesday afternoon at 2:20 p.m. at his residence. Both men remain in custody. Matthew Foerster will be brought back to B.C. to face charges. “While arrests have been made, the investigation is ongoing,” said Fitzpatrick, who credited the “tireless and dedicated efforts of the RCMP officers, laboratory scientists, analysts, behavioural profilers support staff and other police agencies” in helping to make an arrest. Police received more than 1,250 tips which Fitzpatrick said generated a significant

People are asked to call the dedicated tip line at 1-888-688-4264 if they have any information. The Van Diest family praised the work of the RCMP. “We express a heartfelt thank you and gratitude to the RCMP and the whole team of investigators for their perseverance and dogged determination,” said Marie Van Diest. Armstrong Mayor Chris Pieper said Thursday was a special day for the Van Diest family, the community and society in general. “Five months and five days ago, we woke up to hear about the terrible tragedy in our

community,” said Pieper. “Today, we take another step in the long stairway to justice.” Police, during its investigation, released a composite drawing of a suspect in connection with a sexual assault of a Kelowna woman in 2005, stating DNA from that case was found in the Van Diest investigation. One person took responsibility for Van Diest’s death in an anonymous letter to RCMP, but Fitzpatrick did not say who wrote the letter, only that it remains part of the

investigation. Fitzpatrick said as matters are now before the court, he would not go into specifics on how Foerster was arrested, how he came to be in Ontario or what led RCMP directly to him. Fitzpatrick did say there was no evidence linking Van Diest to Foerster. These allegations have not been proved in any court, and Matthew Foerster and Stephen Foerster are presumed to be innocent.

Incineration plant re-considered RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Plans for a contentious garbage incinerator may be back on the table. Regional District of North Okanagan directors decided Wednesday to hold a meeting to discuss a proposal from Vancouver-based CanKor Pacific to build a waste-to-energy plant on part of the Splatsin First Nation near Spallumcheen’s Hullcar area. “I want to see us do our due diligence and not receive and file like the last time,� said director Shirley Fowler. In August 2011, CanKor sought funding for a feasibility study but the RDNO board decided not to take action after staff recommended that the current process of landfilling and recycling waste continue. Some Hullcar residents also had concerns about truck traffic and possible contamination of the environment.

On Wednesday, CanKor officials were back before the board and they were offering to do a $100,000 to $200,000 feasibility study at no cost to the regional district, with RDNO only being asked to provide staff to be involved in the process. CanKor also asked that it be included in any request for proposals if the regional district decides to pursue an incineration project as a way of dealing with trash. “We need co-ordination to get the project rolling,� said Hak Sung Lee, a company director, of the need to involve RDNO at this point. Fowler initially tried to get her colleagues to give provisional assent to a feasibility study so the terms of reference could be developed. However, that didn’t get support. “We don’t have all of the information back from staff. I won’t support that until we’re well informed,� said director Doug

Dirk. It was also pointed out that while RDNO wouldn’t contribute directly to a study, it would be paying for staff activities. “That cost is borne by taxpayers. We already have capacity issues (with workload),� said director Mike Macnabb. Staff expressed concerns about being able to review a proposal independently if RDNO participates in a study. “As soon as you involve us, we’ve lost arm’s length evaluation of this,� said Trafford Hall, administrator. A push to consider solid waste management options other than landfills came from a number of directors, including Howie Cyr. “The reason we’re at the table is to think locally and long-term,� he said. It’s not known when RDNO directors will meet to discuss the CanKor proposal for a feasibility study.

A drug bust near Vernon’s downtown core has resulted in two prolific offenders being arrested. Vernon RCMP downtown enforcement officers were conducting patrols Wednesday at 10 a.m. for a suspicious vehicle possibly involved with drug trafficking. A concerned citizen told police about an older motor-home and other vehicles near a residence in the 3300 block of 35th Avenue. One of the officers located a suspect vehi- Gord Molendyk cle travelling near 24th Avenue at around 11 a.m. with four men inside and stopped the vehicle. “Our officers had reasonable grounds to believe that the occupants were in possession of drugs and all four occupants were arrested,� said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. A search of the vehicle revealed nearly $4,000 in cash, along with weapons and drugs. Drugs seized, said Molendyk, included crystal methamphetamine, crack cocaine, and one bag of suspected heroin. Two men who police deem prolific offenders, one in his 30s, the other 33 and both from Vernon, were held in court and were expected to face charges Thursday. The other two men were released.

In 1966, he was named superintendent of construction when the Vernon Irrigation District shifted from open canals to a pipe system. He remained with VID until the early 1990s. Keenly interested in his community, Kanester got involved in politics and served several terms as BX-Swan Lake director. “Cliff always had the people he represented at

Arrests made after robbery attempt Morning Star Staff

Two men from out of town became guests of the Vernon RCMP after they allegedly tried to rob a city gas station Tuesday. The employee at Quality Chevron Service, in the 3300 block of 32nd Street, called RCMP just after 9 p.m. to report that a man had attempted to rob him. “The suspect demanded money, and the employee told the male suspect that he had called the police,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “The suspect ran off and an accomplice was seen running with him.” A short time later, a City of Vernon bylaw officer located the two suspects near 33rd Street and 39th Avenue in possession of a stolen truck out of Kamloops. The bylaw officer followed the truck from that location to 27th Street and 35th Avenue, where police officers were able to stop the vehicle. The two men with the truck were arrested for robbery and possession of stolen property. “One male was identified with the assistance of Kamloops RCMP,” said Molendyk, adding that police were able to view the video from the Chevron showing one of the men during the robbery and holding a weapon. The men, aged 24 and 22, are from Kamloops and Merritt respectively. Both were taken into custody and were to

is when he came home from school on the last day before spring break and I went to meet the bus and he wasn’t strapped into his wheelchair, he was leaning with his head forward — this is in no way about the bus driver, as they are all excellent. “Some of these kids are non-verbal, and Braden can’t say when something hurts. If he’s not strapped in, he can have a seizure and fall out.” When his feet are strapped to the chair, but not his upper body, Walter is in danger of toppling out of his chair as it comes down the ramp from the bus. “One of the CEAs or resource room staff is supposed to make sure he is strapped into his chair,” said Walton. Braden’s older brother, Matthew McKee, said the bus drivers are not legally permitted to make any kind of adjustments to the chair, including doing up the straps. “But he could break his neck if he flips forward out of the chair,” he said. Walton said the first time this happened, she was concerned but accepted that it was simply an oversight. But the most recent incident was the fourth time her son had come home not strapped into his chair. She said the first incident was in spring 2010, at which time she “raised hell at the school. “You can look and say, OK some things happen, so I try not to get too crazy about things.” But when it happened again in January 2011, Walton phoned the school and spoke to the school principal and the resource room teacher. “They assured us it would never happen again, they were going to go over the procedures with all of the CEAs. Twelve days later, he

He said the district takes issues of student safety extremely seriously. “I have grave concerns when it comes to kids with safety issues, particularly for someone who is wheelchairbound,” said Wilcox. “She has a very valid concern and there is a challenge there. “It is the responsibility of the CEAs, certainly when they are loaded onto the bus, the occupational therapist for the district oversees the restraining systems that are used for the wheelchairs and how they’re seated, so that individual would be looking after that, and the teacher would oversee all the safety issues there. We will be looking at all of those aspects, if there are problems at the bus levels, school levels, do we have faulty equipment? “And we were looking at wanting to do some in service prior to the

break, so this is a bit of a work in progress, and we will be meeting with Barb.” As a special needs student recognized by the Ministry of Education, Walter has an Individual Education Plan (IEP), a written document that outlines everything to do with his education, including his safety, and that when he is in his chair, he must be strapped in at all times. “When it happened again, I was livid. I know that everyone is in a hurry to get going for the holidays, but I have always been assured that safety is the first priority. I no longer believe that.” McKee, a Fulton graduate himself, worked as a teacher’s assistant in the resource room when he was a student at the school. “In those days, they had almost one person per child, and they still needed me to help. They treated them like they were their own children, the kids got constant attention. I was in there every day and helped to take them out to the bus, but the CEAs were

always attentive.” Walton, a Vernon resident for the past 40 years, said she now feels she has no choice but to make her concerns public. “I told the principal that if it happened again, I was going to the media. There are other parents who feel the same way, who have put their kids in private school because of issues of safety,” she said. “He’s gone to secondary school for 13 years and all I want is to put him on the bus and send him to school and for him to have as normal a life as he can. I want to be home and not worry and hope every day that he comes home safe.” Next year, Walter is off to an adult day program, something his mom had been feeling optimistic about. “I had been feeling good about Braden transitioning into the adult system, but that has gone out the window,” she said. “Malcolm (Reid, Fulton principal) has been responsive, but whatever action he’s taking, it’s not working — it doesn’t matter how cordial you are, my child is still in danger. “So it’s at the point now that I don’t know what they can say to me that will reassure me that they are taking care of his safety needs, short of me sitting in the classroom every day. Fulton principal Malcolm Reid learned of the incident late on the last day of school prior to spring break. “We’re taking this very seriously and it’s an active investigation,” he said. “I’ve got a lot of work to do. “We are still in the investigation stage, but it will take me a couple of days to reach a conclusion. We are obviously taking this very seriously, Braden’s safety and the safety of all our students is paramount.”

Nobody was home at the time but police did seize 492 marijuana plants, several pounds of dried bud and a loaded 9-mm handgun. A woman was arrested as she drove onto the property. Van Buren was also given a mandatory 10-year firearms prohibition at her sentencing, and was ordered to provide a DNA sample.

An inter-faith journey

I

t was my privilege to be assigned to write the series of articles for the Inter-Faith Bridging project sponsored by the Vernon and District Immigrant Services Society. The project was part of EmbraceBC which provided funding for organizations, businesses and communities to develop multicultural initiatives appropriate for their areas. The projects that were considered for funding included arts engagement, community dialogues, inclusive leadership, inter-faith bridging, organizing against racism and hate, and pubCara Brady lic education. The project in Vernon included many of the other elements within the inter-faith focus with a series of public arts workshops, a discussion group that attracted more than three times the number of participants expected, and a tour of local sacred places. Everything started last fall after the Vernon and District Immigrant Services Society received funding. Executive director Carol Wutzke and project coordinator Nola Dibski started asking people from different religious groups if they would participate on the steering committee. They were pleased with the response to the idea and got a diverse group together. Most were already community volunteers and leaders. They talked about the mandate of EmbraceBC, which is to promote multiculturalism and eliminate racism in B.C., encourage the full participation of broad and diverse groups, and build trust and relationships that demonstrate understanding and cooperation. Starting with these admirable, if vague, goals, the committee worked on its own achievable goals. The committee members were eager to learn from each other and to make that knowledge available to others. The Morning Star was, we hope, part of the public education process. Many people said they enjoyed reading the articles about some of the different religions of people in the area. Someone from a government office in the Lower Mainland saw the articles online, collected them all and put them up in his office for his staff to read. I approached the interviews with interest and some trepidation. My general knowledge of religion is about average and I respect people who

truly live by their faith. It was daunting to even think of trying to give an overview of religions that are thousands of years old and have been the subject of scholarly writing and discussion for centuries. How was I going to ask the questions that I and others might have without seeming to be rude? How could I avoid making references to what little I know about western religions without seeming to be disrespectful? It turned out the individuals were happy to talk about something that was important to them, the faith that shapes and guides their lives. Each spoke only about their own experiences and it was inspiring to hear. While traditions, cultures and religions differ greatly, it was the faith that was the same — the faith that there is a good way to live. I am aware this is a vast generalization, but what people want for themselves and their families is to live with integrity, help make the world a better place for everyone, and to worship God. All of the people I talked to expressed their gratitude for the opportunity to be part of the project and meet other people of faith that they might not have had a chance to meet otherwise. I feel the same way. The project finale was a potluck supper with a fashion show and dance and drumming performances. Some people are already making plans to get together for a picnic in the summer. Almost 30 per cent of B.C.’s four million residents have emigrated from another country, one-quarter are visible minorities and five per cent are aboriginal. B.C. has about 40,000 new immigrants each year. There is a Multicultural Advisory Council to the minister responsible for multiculturalism and the government issues an annual multiculturalism report about multiculturalism in government ministries. So much is being done. The adults are building the pathway the children will walk in the future. Everyone can promote understanding in whatever they do, wherever they are. That they are doing that is perhaps most apparent in schools where children and youth have friends of all backgrounds simply because they are friends. The funding for the Inter-Faith Bridging project has ended now but so many people have expressed an interest in seeing the group continue that organizers are looking for other funding sources. They want to carry the project on and look forward to seeing it evolve to include more people and ideas.

The gusts of wind that blew through the North Okanagan Thursday afternoon was a region letting out its collective breath. RCMP announced before a packed crowd jammed into Armstrong council chambers that an arrest had been made in connection with the Halloween night 2011 homicide of local teenager Taylor Van Diest, 18. And it wasn’t one person arrested. It was two. Van Diest’s body was found by family and friends near railway tracks after she failed to meet friends for some Halloween night fun. She died later in Kelowna hospital, 157 days ago. The RCMP, which often takes a beating in public forums for not keeping communities safe or informed on investigations, devoted countless man-hours to one of the most extensive investigations in the North Okanagan’s history. They kept Mayor Chris Pieper abreast of the investigation. They revealed photos of what Taylor was wearing Halloween night. They informed the public that an anonymous letter writer had taken responsibility for the death, and they revealed that, thanks to DNA evidence, the man who killed Van Diest was the same individual who sexually assaulted a Kelowna woman in 2005. A composite sketch yielded hundreds of more tips until, finally, 156 days after the murder, police could announce they had a suspect in custody. Armstrong changed forever Halloween night 2011.The sleepy little community fell victim to a crime that can happen anywhere. Thanks to the RCMP’s efforts and the arrest of a suspect, Armstrong’s healing can now officially begin.

efore getting into my letter I should identify myself as the owner of Supergreen Lawn and Tree Care. My credentials are 35 years of working with pesticides. At my last check up I had no evidence of any health concerns. My wife and I have five children and a number of grandchildren, all healthy. As should any father/grandfather, I dote on my family, I would cause them no deliberate harm. I am responding to the letter written by Gideon Forman on the risks of pesticides. In his first paragraph he states, "Even Health Canada admits that lawn pesticides have risks." An excellent observation, as the executive director of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, has he also noted the risks mentioned in commercials with over INTERSECTION WOES Yes it is realized that this mayor and council have there hands tied behind their back - but it is hoped that you may lobby for changes to be made. There are several spots where you turn on and off the highway in the Spallumcheen township that are dark and unlit and poorly marked. It is real scary and just a matter of time before someone is seriously hurt at one of these intersections. One such intersection that needs attention is the one on Highway 97 that turns into Golf View There is a turn lane for a left turn, when it snows this lane disappears and becomes the property of the oncoming traffic and you are stuck in the traveled lane trying to make the left turn with everyone behind you hitting their brakes. Even in good weather at night this intersection is dark and it is really tough to see where the turn onto Medenhall Road is.

the counter drugs, not to mention the prescribed ones? Everything has an element of risk, and of course one might be concerned that the material I place on a yard might harm them (that's why signs are posted after treatment, a whole other story). I have the same concern for flying, any number of things can go wrong and has the potential to What is the chance of better markings and a street light - a flashing light? A few solar powered flashing lights and signage and a drop in the speed allowed would be nice. Ike Neutoun TAX HIKE I am responding to Coun. Fraser and Mayor Brown’s comments regarding a 12 per cent tax hike for Spallumcheen. I would like to ask council to brace for a revolt of their projected 12 per cent tax hike, or at least explain to the township residents how this hike, in tough economic times, was not even on their radar. Every year in autumn, we, as Spall taxpayers, finance our council to learn from, listen to, and schmooze with, their fellow British Columbian politicians at a meeting in places like Whistler, B.C. One would assume that at least one of the four re-elected Spall council members would have at some point, learned from those meetings of the possible negative

harm me (my family), numerous others on the flight, and individuals on the ground (the aircraft has no sign posted asking me to stay off). I suppose both concerns could be addressed by staying at home (unless something happens to that aircraft, directly above my house). His second paragraph cites his financial consequences when our population exceeded 5,000 people. Our current 2011 Census population in Spall is 5,055 and we now have to pay for our own police. Spallumcheen's census in 2006 revealed that 4,960 people lived in the township then. It should have been easily predicted then by Spallumcheen council that the population in the township would have risen by a minimum of 40 people in the five years between the 2006 census and the 2011 census. What would have prevented council from increasing the “four per cent automatically put on the books” budget with a modest six per cent increase over the last three to four years? Worst-case scenario, the township would have a small surplus and not have to cut “anywhere we can.” Maybe Spall council could lead the way and take a 7.94 per cent pay cut to do their part. BC Hydro is making national news with their ridiculous seven

doctors' organization. Did you know that you don't have to be a doctor to join this organization? Yes you can, and it doesn't cost that much either. In the same paragraph he mentions the Canadian Cancer Society, an organization that seems to have meandered away from its original intent. The CCS also says the risk is not worth taking, yet on its website, the society states there is no proven link between pesticides and cancer. If there isn't a link, why would one of Canada's largest charities promote pesticide bans across the country, rather than direct them towards finding a cure? Nowhere is there any mention of scientific or toxicological evidence, just that there is a risk, a maybe, a potential. This is the argument the

Provincial Committee on Cosmetic Pesticides has to base a decision on? Bear in mind that both the Liberals and NDP favour a ban. When/if it goes through I urge you to ask for a detailed report on how they came to their decision, hold them accountable. Can we do better? I believe we are working towards that goal, certainly the material used today is much different from when I started. Many of today's pesticides are species specific, meaning they target a specific insect, leaving beneficial insects alone. Many of today's pesticides are softera, meaning they break down in the environment more quickly. We've come a long way in 35 years, and products will undoubtedly continue to improve. Henry van der Molen

per cent increase over last year’s rates. Spall council’s proposal of a 12 per cent tax hike is just irresponsible. Families on fixed incomes cannot afford 12 per cent tax increases. For Spallumcheen's future, the people in charge of township finances must have better intuition and do a better job. For all our sake. Arnette DenEngelsen GREAT CARE I wish to take this opportunity to thank the Interior Health community nurses for their wonderful care and dedication in looking after me for a year both at home and in hospital, treating a wound on my shin. The outcome has been successful, but throughout the year there were many setbacks and I believe that the nurses’ care and dedication to perfection saw me through this difficult period. Thanks to all of you. Louise Lypchuk

Dudley Price is asking the township to reimburse him for overpayment of taxes for the past 13 years after discovering his Lansdowne Road property isn’t as big as he was told it was when Price bought it in 1999. “I purchased the property, which was on your tax roll as 3.83 acres, and have paid taxes on 3.83 acres to Spallumcheen ever since,” said Price in a two-page letter to council. A recent home inspection and bank appraisal for a prospective purchaser of Price’s property found the acreage to be not nearly as large.

mistake, Price should be compensated. “He shouldn’t be paying for a property size that is actually quite a bit less,” said Ganson. “If that was my property, I would be really upset paying taxes on a larger amount than I actually owned.” Coun. Joe Van Tienhoven assured Price the matter would be investigated. “We are going to dig into this and find out where the ball was dropped, when it was dropped and how it was dropped,” said Van Tienhoven. Chief financial officer Brian Freeman-Marsh said no investigative work into the matter has started except for a few phone calls with Price. Council voted unanimously on a motion put forward by Fraser to have Freeman-Marsh do a summary of costs for potentially reimbursing Price for the overpayment of taxes and the legal survey.

“I don’t know who made a mistake and I don’t care.” — Dudley Price Price said he was told that, in 1965, Lansdowne Road was re-routed through his property but that the township failed to change its records, and the information was then sent unchanged to the B.C. Assessment Authority upon its formation in 1974. Price said the assessment authority did some calculations and, based upon information on the property they had on file from the township estimated the area at first to be 2.005 acres. That was then amended to 2.81 acres. Price had a survey of his property done last month and it shows his property is 2.48 acres. “I don’t know who made a mistake and I don’t care, and I don’t

care that my property is worth less,” said Price who appeared before council to speak on his letter. “I do care that the municipality I’ve lived in and loved for 35 years, the same place I have faithfully and religiously paid my taxes, treats me with the same respect I’ve treated them with, and do the right thing.” Price is asking the township for compensation for overpayment of taxes for the years he’s owned the property, and is also asking for $1,288, the cost of the survey (including HST) which he said he never should have had to have completed. Councillors Christine Fraser and Rachael Ganson feel if the township made the

Expanding the vitality of Enderby is generating a lot of energy. About 60 to 80 people attended consultations held by the Enderby Vitalization Initiative steering committee last Friday and Saturday. “I was impressed with the amount of people who came out,” said Coun. Brad Case. Residents and businesses were asked a number of questions including opportunities for economic growth, what can be done to make the

community more inviting, what draws visitors to the area and what amenities would they like to see in the community. “We heard about cleanup, flowers and trees,” said Case of some of the suggestions provided. “There were a couple ideas about closing main street for pedestrian use only.” Darren Robinson, Enderby Chamber of Commerce executive director, was impressed with the concepts put forward. “Some common themes did occur and many issues were put in the spotlight, including, the highway upgrades, signage, area beautification, public washrooms, business improvement incentives, traffic patterns, public art, events and festivals, cultural tourism development, trail development and needed amenities to encourage more local shopping,” he said. Mayor Howie Cyr believes there is considerable interest in revitalizing downtown and the entire community. “We had some enthusiastic people with great ideas,” he said. Committee members, including those from the city and the Enderby Chamber of Commerce, sat down Tuesday to discuss the consultation sessions. “We can find some things to do right away and then develop a strategy for others over five or 10 years,” said Case. Other partners in the process are the Splatsin First Nation and the Regional District of North Okanagan. Cyr says the work of sub-committees will be crucial to the success of the overall initiative. “We want to get to work with it,” he said.

Residents enraged over water rates Morning Star Staff

Some North Westside residents are fuming over a significant hike in water rates. The Regional District of Central Okanagan board has approved a 190 per cent fee increase for three community water utilities. “Many residents on the North Westside are seniors or parents with young families who do not have the resources to pay these large increases,� said Diane Baldwin, North Westside Ratepayers Association president. “The regional district has now effectively increased taxes substantially through water costs. Today, few are receiving increases in pay and with the cost of necessities increasing daily, we believe these rates are unconscionable.� There will be a consumption based residential rate (35 cents per cubic metre for all water used in excess of 235 cubic metres during a three-month billing period) for the utilities for Killiney Beach, Westshore

“We believe these rates are unconscionable.� — Diane Baldwin and Upper Fintry/Shalal Road/Valley of the Sun. There will also be a user fee and an asset renewal fee. For Westshore Estates, the user and asset fees will amount to $632 per property, while it will be $682 for Killiney Beach and $600 for Upper Fintry/Shalal Road/ Valley of the Sun residents. RDCO officials state the increases are necessary to build up reserves for future utility upgrades, but the ratepayers association questions that approach. “We have met the plan for long-term conservation by installing water meters,� said Baldwin. “We are aware consulting companies

and RDCO staff want to become one of B.C.’s progress leaders in sustainable practices.� The association also believes there should have been public consultation prior to the regional district proceeding with the higher rates. “In February, we received a letter saying water rates were going to be adjusted and that there would be public meetings to discuss the issue in future,� said Baldwin. “To date, we have not had any public meetings and are presently in the process of communicating to set up dates, albeit after the fact. Residents deserve some answers.� RDCO will hold an open house on water rates April18 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Killiney Beach Community Hall. “Information will also be available at each session regarding water conservation, water meters and recent grants for capital projects and infrastructure improvements,� said Bruce Smith, communications officer.

Whitevalley Resource Centre secures funds Morning Star Staff

News Lodge Road upgrades en route

Morning Star Staff

Planned upgrades to Lodge Road in Lake Country are expected to start as soon as the school year ends, with completion in September. Construction will include a roundabout at the intersection of Bottom Wood Lake Road and Lodge Road, as well as upgrades along Lodge Road to the 90 degree turn near the south end of the Clearwater subdivision. “We’re excited to get moving forward on

a project that many community groups and residents have been asking for,” said Mayor James Baker. The $1.5 million project will have bike lanes and sidewalks, as well as a pedestrian bridge at Vernon Creek. During construction, there will be a period of inconvenience as traffic is re-routed. The contractor will be attempting to keep disruptions to a minimum and give stakeholders advance notice of impacts.

Detailed information about the project will be available through public meetings, media releases and direct mail-outs to immediately impacted residents and businesses. The first neighborhood information session will be held Wednesday from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the municipal office. “The inconvenience for a short time this summer will lead to long-term improved quality of life and safety for residents and visitors,” said Baker.

Vernon athletes cook up awards GRAEME CORBETT & KEVIN MITCHELL Morning Star Staff

For a kid who didn’t know he was going to play volleyball in Grade 8, Vernon’s Preston Tucker has sure come a long way in the sport. The ex-Seaton Sonic setter capped off a stellar five-year collegiate career with the UBC Okanagan Heat by claiming the College Athlete of the Year at Sport B.C.’s 46th annual awards gala last month at the River Rock Show Theatre. “Not a bad way to finish,” grinned Tucker, who graduated with a major in human kinetics and minor in psychology. “I don’t really know what to say. B.C. College Athlete of the Year – when you take a step back and look at it, it’s a pretty big accomplishment.” The 22-year-old garnered attention for the Sport B.C. award by earning basically every piece of individual hardware available the season before, highlighted by the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association (CCAA) National Player of the Year Across All Sports. He was also a CCAA All-Canadian, BCCAA Player of the Year and first team all-star, as well as UBC Okanagan’s Student-Athlete of the Year. Asked about the secret of his success, Tucker replied: “The thing I would attribute the most success to is just hard work. Just putting in the time at practice and in the gym, and getting stronger and having that work ethic.

“I couldn’t have done it without (coaches) Doug Kozak at Seaton, as well as Greg Poirtras here at UBCO.” Tucker’s mother, a former volleyball player, was the one who first steered him towards the sport as he entered Seaton. “She kind of explained who this guy (Kozak) is, that he’s like a guru,” said Tucker. Tucker plans to stay in the Okanagan this summer, playing soccer with older brother Nathan on the Turn-Key Controls in the North Okanagan Men’s League. After that, he will head to Europe to play pro volleyball. “Everybody that I’ve talked to that has done it, they recommend I go at least a year and then I can say I’ve done it and won’t have any regrets,” he said. Meanwhile, UBCO honoured three Vernon products at its 20th annual awards banquet Tuesday night. Kirsten Dodds received the Rookie of the Year trophy in women’s soccer, while Emily Kanester won a similar award in women’s basketball. Maddie Kaneda won the Coach’s Choice hardware in hoops. Dodds was an immediate force with the Heat, scoring three goals in her first three games, ending up with six on the year as the Heat went 8-1-2 in league play before losing 2-1 to the Thompson Rivers WolfPack in the PACWEST final.

“This year was an amazing start to my university career,” said Dodds. “We won the league but unfortunately suffered heartbreak in overtime of the provincial final. Although we were incredibly disappointed, we can also be proud in the fact that it was the first silver medal UBCO has won. “I couldn’t ask for a better team to play for. The team chemistry we have is amazing, and that makes it much easier to excel because you have motivation beyond just yourself – we all play for each other. I was really excited and honored to be named Rookie of the Year.” Dodds will play for Okanagan FC in the Pacific Coast League this summer with several Heat teammates. Training for the PACWEST 2012 season begins in late August. “I know my whole team and I cannot wait for next season; we have a real fire in our bellies. We all want so badly to be provincial champions next year and earn a spot at nationals, we won’t be happy with anything less.” Kanester, a 5-foot-6 guard, was third in Heat scoring at 7.9 points a game. The bachelor of science student drained a season-high 18 points in one of her first league tilts. The Heat went 2-16. “It was such an honour to be chosen as Rookie of the Year,” said Kanester. “Even though we only won two games, I couldn’t have asked for a better first season.

The Roadrunners defeated the New Westminster Salmonbellies and Coquitlam Adanacs before taking the Port Moody Blues to the limit before losing their only game of the season. “Unfortunately a rash of injuries derailed our plans for a long playoff run, as the ‘Runners lost seven regulars to season- ending injuries leading up to the playoffs,� said GM Terry Rolfe. “This year’s team has had a good pre-season camp, and the expectations are again high for the club, with a deep playoff run the goal for the 2012 season.� The Roadrunners will bolster their lineup with some Intermediate A and B players.

REVELSTOKE – The Revelstoke Grizzlies Society is making a push to keep the Junior B hockey team in town, following an emotional annual general meeting at the Revelstoke Forum Tuesday night. The society, which was meeting for the first time since the team’s sale to 100 Mile House, voted in a new executive and formed two committees to solicit community and corporate support. The society owned the team until it was sold to Ronald Kolman, Joe Dauenhauer and Michael Jodoin for $15,000 in 2006. The current owners took over the team before the 2009-10 season. When the society sold the team, a clause was put into the contract giving the society the right to buy back the team for $1 if the new owners planned on moving or folding the team before May 31, 2016. On Monday, the Times Review learned the current ownership group, which is led by Michael Roberts and also includes Lou Hendrickson and Joe Kozek, filed an application with KIJHL on Sunday to sell the team to a group in 100 Mile House. Roberts cited declining attendance and corporate support, as well as mounting financial losses as the reasons for the sale. On Tuesday, the ownership group presented the society with a $25,000 cheque from a security bond that was to be released should the team be moved or folded. The society has 30 days to exercise its option to buy the Grizzlies and at its AGM it elected Mavis Cann as president to lead the efforts at saving the team. Cann established two sub-committees – one to solicit fan support and the other to solicit corporate support. The goal is to see if there’s enough interest in the community for the society to be able to afford to keep the team here and assume the team’s debt, which was speculated to be in the $60,000 range, though none of the owners were in attendance to confirm that number.

Matt Litzenberger pulled the hat trick as the Godard Excavating Predators clipped the Re/Max Rangers 3-2 in Vernon Hockey League playoff action Tuesday night at Wesbild Centre. The fifth-place Predators (18-10-0-2) meet the regular-season champion RE Postill & Sons Orphans in the best-of-three championship series starting Wednesday night (9:30, Priest Valley). Game 2 goes Thursday night (7:15, PV) with a third game, if necessary, set for Sunday, April 15 at 6:15 p.m. (Wesbild). Brothers Danny and Andy Stein set up Litzenberger’s first snipe, while Kenny Johnstone drew the assist on his second. Litzenberger’s winner, at 12:54 of the final period, was unassisted. The Preds went up 2-0 in the first period before former Viper Richard Jodoin clicked at 12:05, from Steve Vallier and Nanamo Clipper hrad Scott Kowalski. Ex-Alberni Valley Bulldog Sawyer Mick equalized with 2:38 to play in the first, with Tim Proctor assisting. Chris Kingdon recorded 19 saves for the Preds, while Steve Clark made 16 stops for the defending playoff champion Rangers, who finished second at 21-9.

Fred Page starts tonight EMANUEL SEQUEIRA Morning Star Staff

Kent Lewis could only laugh when asked if he was glad to not be facing the Vernon Vipers again in the B.C. Hockey League Fred Page Cup final. “It doesn’t matter who you play. I feel this is a great league,” said Lewis, head coach of the Powell River Kings, who lost the final to the Vipers three straight years. “The final two teams have to go through a lot. We are facing one heck of an opponent.” Lewis described the Penticton Vees, Canada’s No. 1 ranked junior A team, as an aggressive team. “Fred (Harbinson, Vees’ coach-GM) was aggressive in making moves to make sure this team can do it,” said Lewis. “They are loaded up front. They have balance. They work hard.” The Vees possess an offensive arsenal that would make just about any coach in the country drool. However, the calling card of this team is work ethic. They don’t quit on very many plays.

That is what Harbinson has been impressed with when it comes to backup-turned-starter Chad Katunar, who has filled in admirably for Michael Garteig, a former King. “Katunar has been one of the best goaltenders in the BCHL in the playoffs,” said Harbinson. While the Kings may have an edge in post-season experience (76 games to Penticton’s 61), the Vees have a have hungry rookie forward corps capable of torturing goalies and embarrassing defences. In the Interior final series clincher against the Merritt Centennials, Mario Lucia made an incredible play, cutting through two Centennials players, then putting the puck through Reece Willcox’s legs and firing a shot on net. Wade Murphy quickly buried the rebound. When asking Harbinson about the Minnesota Wild draft pick, he said: “Lucia is taking his game to a whole other level. He’s competing so hard. We have a lot of guys doing that.”

Former Vipers battle in Frozen Four Morning Star Staff

They were teammates on the Vernon Vipers, but Cole Ikkala and Cory Kane set their friendship aside Thursday night as they battled for a berth in the NCAA Division 1 Men’s Hockey Championship. Ikkala’s No. 3-ranked Union Flying Dutchmen and Kane’s No. 6 Ferris State Bulldogs, both small school underdogs, met in the Frozen Four semifinals at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. A pair of perennial NCAA powerhouses – the Boston College Eagles and the Minnesota Golden Gophers – tangled in the other Thursday semi, with the championship game slated for Saturday (4 p.m. PT). ■ Ex-BCHL coach Scott Robinson, formerly of Enderby, will be needing a new job after it was announced there will be no further North American Hockey League action in Dawson Creek. Kirk Fynn, vice-president of hockey operations with the Dawson Creek Rage, confirmed the team would be folding after team investors were unable to obtain further funding after a closed-doors meeting with city council.

Robinson last coached in the BCHL with the Cowichan Valley Capitals before signing with Dawson Creek. ■ Colin O’Hara announced his resignation as head coach and GM after two seasons with the SilverBacks. O’Hara, a former assistant coach with the Vipers (2007-08) is leaving the organization to pursue other coaching opportunities. He was the club’s fourth coach in as many years.

Exhibition is 25 years in the making Vernon’s Adel Karame hopes to return to his birthplace by selling off his artwork KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

Walk into Adel Karame’s world and it’s one full of monsters, dragons and a few skeletons. They come in all shapes and sizes, on paper and in the form of three dimensional custom designed gearshifts used to, you guessed it, change gears on a manual transmission car. A Vernon resident for the past 15 years, Karame has recently shifted gears, quite literally. About to show his art work at The Hub Arts Collective, Karame has unearthed a stash of paintings he created 25 years ago. “I started painting for something to do,” said Karame. “I made around 100 paintings, some of which I kept under the mattress so no one could see them.” It took Karame years to finally show his work after meeting Hub owner Matt Brown, who was working at a local car dealership at the time. “He told me about The Hub, and I said ‘I want to show you some of my paintings because I haven’t shown them to anyone... I thought they were crap. I showed

KRISTIN FRONEMAN/MORNING STAR

Adel Karame is showing some of his paintings and custom-made gearshifts at The Hub Arts Collective for the month of April. An opening reception with the artist takes place Saturday at 6:30 p.m. him 100, and he took 99,” laughed Karame. Originally from Lebanon, Karame discovered his artistic talents as a boy. “I used to draw landscapes when I was nine. I used to create things that my father would pick up, like a rock that I would sculpt into a heart. I would also make daggers out of wood,” he said. After leaving his home country to work at a car dealership in Saudi

Arabia, Karame not only became interested in race car driving, but in car accessories. After moving to Canada, he owned several businesses, including a restaurant on the Coast and a pizza shop in Lavington, as well as a body shop supplies outlet, until hard times befell him. “I lost everything, even the Cadillac I had for 15 years. I lost my house, my restaurant and got divorced,” he said.

Adding to his pain, Karame broke his back in an accident, which left him on disability. “It took time to recover. I didn’t go anywhere, I was depressed and with the pain, I couldn’t sleep.” Karame isn’t sure what it was exactly that called to him to get up –– divine inspiration, perhaps –– but it was a sudden awakening that had him make his first custom gearshift. “I came by some money and went

to buy materials. Some are made from wood, fiberglass and metal. From 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. every day for two years, I didn’t talk to anyone, I watched movies and made my shifters. I think I made 100 or more.” Calling his business, Adel’s Custom Shifts, Karame placed an advertisement in the newspaper and sold them through local auto part dealers. “Nothing sold, so I picked them up. I want to thank the businesses for giving me a chance to put them in their stores,” he said. Not wanting to give up, Karame has started again. He now has approximately 100 shifters, which he says don’t have to go in a car, but can be displayed as sculpture art. And he hopes to sell them and all his paintings to earn enough money to visit his homeland. Karame says his father is now, remarkably 110 years old and his mother is 95, and he hasn’t seen either of them in many years. “I am still waiting for a chance to see my mother and father before they die,” he said. “I really appreciate anyone who has helped me so far. I have always worked for myself, but I cannot work now because of my back, but I can still talk and draw,” he smiled. Karame’s art work will be available to view and purchase at The Hub Arts Collective for the month of April. An opening reception with Karame takes place Saturday at 6:30 p.m. The Hub is located on 30th Avenue, next to the Towne Theatre.

Bursary in Scott’s name will go to vocal/choral student Morning Star Staff

It is time once again for interested students to prepare their applications for the Elizabeth Scott Vocal Choral Bursary. Given annually, the bursary is named after Scott, a retired choir leader and instructor, whose contributions to choral music spanned more than 20 years in Vernon. “Her children’s and teen choirs were indeed a joy and an inspiration to hear and see perform,” said Catherine Dawson, with the bursary committee. The bursary is open to any student under

the age of 35 who is pursuing post secondary education in the fields of vocal or choral work, vocal teaching, performing, choral conducting, music therapy or accompaniment. The student must be enrolled in a recognized institution program for a course of at least one semester. The recipients are chosen in the spring usually by early June and the award is sent to their university or college the following January, said Dawson. The three previous winners are nearing the point when they will take the world by

storm, said Dawson. “They are constantly performing in their respective university programs and choirs. The quality of their voices was impressive in their teens and now with years of extra training a chance to hear any of them sing is not to be missed.” Two of them are in masters of music programs and the third, Alison Harker, will be performing two numbers with the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra in their program April 22 at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre. Former recipient, Nathan Letourneau, has

Those interested in applying for the bursary will need two letters of reference from music teachers and to write a short essay outlining their goals and aspirations.

Mercer and The Shins are masters of weaving ethereal sounds into solid, evocative melodies. This talent utilizes studio savvy to deliver lush songs that are otherworldly and lively (Simple Song). Whacked-out gadgets like the theremin could be manipulated successfully into a Shins song â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the band is bursting with an eccentric musicality that skirts the edges of pop sensibilities. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Only Life uses this ringing layering technique to lift it up to a gorgeously crafted

potential single thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resonant with dreamy imagery. Mercerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high and clear near soprano reach is a singular sound today. The arrangements on Port of Morrow arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t conventional and match Mercerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice to inspired guitar/keyboard atmospherics. The recording is clean. The music shines and the songs are over the horizon (No Way Down, For a Fool). One can hear elements of light psychedelia and progressive rock, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;70â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s style, presented accessibly.

P

oor Perseus (Sam Worthington), he just wants to live a simple fisherman’s life and raise his son in

peace. His father Zeus (Liam Neeson) delivers bad news that draws him back into the fray, again defending humans from the wrath of the Titans, which promises to unleash Kronos from Hell. With his cousin Agenor (Poseidon’s Taylor & Howe son, played comically by Toby Kebbell) leading the way, Perseus and Queen Andromeda (Rosamund Pike), break into Hell to release Zeus from Hades (Ralph Fiennes) and hopefully save the day. Do they succeed? Is it fun to watch? Does anybody care? We say, “See it if it’s up your alley. It’s exactly what you’d expect.” HOWE: Last Sunday when we gave our up and coming movies for this year, I wrote Wrath of the Titans would bore us. I was pleasantly surprised and have to say I enjoyed it. It’s not going to win any prizes for its storyline, dodgy acting or cheap looking CGI (I’ve seen a lot worse this year). But what it did give you was 99 minutes of fun entertainment. TAYLOR: It was fine. The audience seemed to be enjoying it. I found myself bored at about the 60 per cent mark, so I just went into “objective film critic mode.” Then, once Perseus found the key to defeating the released Kronos, I thought, “Oh good, here comes the end.” In fairness, although this film is not my cup of tea, I couldn’t fault it for being predictable, most movies are predictable. HOWE: I liked the cameo role of the

The owl’s acting was amazing as Hephaestus’ (Bill Nighy) side kick. TAYLOR: There were light moments that worked well. I too noticed that the CGI had moments of ugliness. I think the producers noticed too and attempted to cover, for instance, cheap looking flying beasties with smoke, hiding their flaws. HOWE: That may be true, but when they did get the CGI right, it looked great. Take the cyclops for instance, that eye looked real. TAYLOR: However, aren’t you tired of films that just go through the motions? I don’t understand why anyone would spend $100 million on something that merely gives you the same, very old, non-thrills.

Titans, just movies in general. For instance: an action driven movie had better keep your attention, a character driven movie better have people in it you relate to, a mystery or thriller better have you seeking answers, a horror movie better scare, a comedy better make you laugh, etc. Wrath of the Titans, like so many films, gives you glimpses of any one of these things, here and there, without really succeeding in any direction. What this film does is allow 99 minutes of your life to pass by painlessly. Is that enough? Perhaps for some, not for me. Taylor gives Wrath of the Titans 2 arms out of an available 5. Howe gives it 2.5 of Zeus’ lightning bolts out of 5. –– The film is currently playing at Vernon’s Galaxy Cinemas.

Dan Jacobson and Heidi Osterman, guests at the second annual Cherryville Heritage Seed Saver Day last month, with a bag of organic sweet carrots from Fountain View Academy’s farm.

A celebration of heritage Morning Star Staff

Heirloom seeds, organic juice tasting and information on genetically modified organisms were all part of the day as Cherryville celebrated its second annual Heritage Seed Saver Day in March. Organized by Cherryville resident Neville O’Grady and sponsored by the Richland’s Seventhday Adventists, the event featured 11 tables of heirloom and organic gardener-saved seeds, starter plants, produce, gardening information and more for sale or exchange. “Seed swaps are gaining in popularity as interest grows in accessing healthy food,” said O’Grady. “Commercial and organic seed companies are more and more coming under the control of a giant GMO seed corporation, limiting the freedom to choose what crops farmers and gardeners grow.” Kelowna-based nutritionist Heidi Osterman, representing the True Food Foundation, spoke on the need for GMO labeling on all food sold. “Most European countries require labeling, but it hasn’t been made mandatory in North America yet,” she said. “There has also been no real independent testing on what GMO foods do to those who consume them. “When Europe did testing on animals, the results

“Consumers have a right to know what they are eating.” — Heidi Osterman were disastrous to the animals. Malformation, sterility, diseases and early deaths were just a few of the results. Consumers have a right to know what they are eating.” Another highlight at the event was the free carrot juice from Fountain View Academy’s organic carrot farm. Dan Jacobson, who did the juicing said, “The proof is in the tasting.” Sandi from Enderby again offered free food samples promoting vegetarian cooking classes. Pastor Terry McComb summed up the spirit of the event. “I believe the Creator creates food at its best without mixing plant and animal genes,” he said. “People need to make informed choices as to what they feed their bodies and the freedom to make those choices.” The plans are to sponsor another Heritage Seed Saver event again next year in Cherryville on March 10.

I ask my wife all the time what she wants me to do, but she won’t say. Am I supposed to read her mind? I have even asked her to please leave me notes, and the answer is “no.” So my wife has decided to resolve our arguments by sleeping by herself. I don’t feel this helps matters at all.

You are lonely, yes, and hopeful of finding love again. But you are also smart enough to recognize a scam when you see one. We wish you the best of luck in finding someone who will truly make you happy. Dear Annie: I understand why “OverSeventy Attitude” doesn’t care for e-mail cards. Here’s an even more egregious etiquette error. After attending the wedding of a relative, we received a preprinted card saying, “Thanks for sharing in our day and for your gift, Love (names).” Not even a personal signature, never mind an acknowledgement of the actual (generous) gift.

the Inner Peace Movement of Canada, a non-profit educational program that offers practical, downto-earth tools and techniques to help people handle the hurdles of daily life and find a sense of purpose and fulfillment in whatever they do. Ponchet said there is a need to explore the potential that each person has within themselves and for each person to sense what is best for them and learn to raise their own level of energy to be more positive in any situation. “Even when it is difficult, we can find solutions,” said Ponchet, whose Vernon stop is part of a national lecture tour that has taken him from Nova Scotia to British Columbia. “Things will work out because when we are relaxed, inspirations will come to us that will help us find solutions to challenging situations. If we are relaxed, our inner guidance or guardian angels will give us ideas that will work. We are never alone. We can always tune into help that is available to us and receive valuable wisdom and guidance.” The lecture takes place April 10 at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Best Western Vernon Lodge. Admission is $16. Please see www.innerpeacemovement.ca for more information.

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder THINGS LOOK EASY, BUT BE CAREFUL John Cleese, an English actor particularly well known for “Monty Python” (which was written by the six actors, including Cleese) and “Fawlty Towers” (which he wrote with his then wife, Connie Booth), said, “I tend to have an odd split in my mind: I tend to look at it as a writer and when the writing thing is OK and I’m happy with it, then I put on my actor’s hat.” In today’s deal, “split” is the key word. How should South plan the play in four hearts after West begins with three rounds of spades? South opened with a weak two-bid, showing a decent suit and 6 to 10 highcard points. North, with his aces,

kings and good five-card suit, might have jumped straight to four hearts. But he cautiously responded two no-trump, an artificial inquiry usually indicating that he had game-invitational values in partner’s suit. (Remember, a raise of two hearts to three hearts would have been pre-emptive, not inviting game.) South’s three-club rebid announced a maximum with a “feature” in clubs, usually the ace or king, but perhaps only the queen in a pinch. The contract looks easy, declarer apparently having 10 top tricks: six hearts, two diamonds and two clubs. However, if he immediately tries to draw trumps, he goes down when the split is bad. Instead, after playing

a heart to dummy’s king, South should cash the club ace, lead a club to his king, and trump his last club in the dummy. He cashes the top diamonds, ruffs a spade to return to his hand, and plays trumps. A ruff in the shorter trump hand is almost always the right play.

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.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) This is one of those days when people tend to put the social graces under a microscope. Any form of misconduct or overindulgence on your part will be frowned upon and talked about for a long time. CANCER (June 21-July 22) If you find yourself being forced to accept another person’s desires in spite of your own needs, chances are you’ll rebelliously do the opposite. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Usually you would simply shrug off anyone who is not in accord with your views or desires, but if the way the offending party goes about it ticks you off, you won’t hesitate to bury him or her. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) When you’re put in charge of the financial affairs or resources of others, be as prudent as possible. Even then, unless you first consult the sponsor, you could get in trouble.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Don’t allow yourself to get caught in the middle of two warring friends. You wouldn’t be able to help at all, plus you’d get hammered from both sides. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Take nothing for granted in negotiating a competitive development. If your opposition has more going for him or her than you surmise, you could get in way over your head. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) There is a good chance that you’ll be far more vulnerable than usual to high-pressure sales pitches. If this is the case, you could impulsively do something that would prove costly. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) When it comes to issues about which you feel strongly, be extra careful about expressing them when confronted by someone who holds equally strong opposing viewpoints. Keep mum.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Be on guard and ready to deal with some opposition from an unexpected source. Regardless of how out of line it might be, it’ll give you a big, fat headache. Forewarned is forearmed. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Excuses won’t be any help whatsoever where neglected promises are concerned. When you
