Castlegar pitch for WestJet service gets regional support Trail council remains silent on issue BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

With a Greater Trail bid for WestJet affections now in the land of broken hearts, two local municipal councils are backing a Castlegar attempt this week to woo the national airline to the West Kootenay. Councils in Fruitvale, Montrose and Trail have all deliberated on the West Kootenay Regional Airport Advisory Committee’s proposal to WestJet for inclusion as a regional service destination in late 2013. The committee had asked municipal councils across the region for a letter of support to take in with them when representatives from West Kootenay Regional Airport in Castlegar meet with WestJet company officials in Calgary, June 27-28. And the support is there. Along with Montrose, Fruitvale spoke in favour of the bid, with Fruitvale councilor Larry Gray noting the addition of another major carrier would be welcome since it would increase the reliability of access to

the region. “If you look at the values overall in the area of economic development, we want to support better air access here, more connections—all those things are good— and we support competition because it keeps the fares lower,� he said. “And if WestJet were to move into this area as a carrier, I think it would have more impact on Air Canada than it would have on the Greater Trail Airport.� Trail council debated the proposal in a closed session and several councilors declined to comment on the matter afterwards. Sandy Santori, executive director of the Lower Columbia Initiatives Corporation (LCIC), was on board. He felt the Trail Airport’s only airline, Pacific Coastal, was well positioned to retain its market share and continue to grow its business if WestJet opened up shop in the area. “Pacific Coastal will retain its competitive advantages because they are able to do things that major carriers can’t,� he said. “There’s no question that, locally, we support both airports in an effort

Amalgamation issue still alive BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

The report of my death was an exaggeration. Mark Twain said it, so does Beaver Valley amalgamation. The issue of amalgamation of Fruitvale, Montrose and parts of Area A is still on the front burner, but the heat of debate has been turned down to low. Regional District of Kootenay Boundary chief administrative

officer John MacLean said although the topic has not been officially killed yet, it is close. An upcoming conference call with the province is expected to begin to give some closure to the issue that has been debated in the region for many years. “The ministry is still trying to work with us, but we are just trying to make sure ‌ we have looked at (amalgamation) from every different angle to see if it can

work in any way,� he said Tuesday. In early March the Beaver Valley amalgamation committee held an information session on the findings of Allan NeilsonWelch Consulting’s High Level Analysis of Amalgamation report for the region. For the 50 people that showed up to the session in Fruitvale March 1, the report revealed that Fruitvale

Awards keep adding up for a local math scholar. Rossland native Julie Nutini, a student at the University of B.C.’s Okanagan campus, was presented with the 2012 Governor General’s Gold Medal for achieving the highest academic standing at the graduate level. The medal, which has been presented nationally since 1873, is considered to be one of the most prestigious awards that a Canadian student can receive. “I am honoured to be the recipient of the Governor General’s Gold Medal this year,�

said the 24-year-old Nutini in a UBC news release. “It is incredible to have my achievements and hard work recognized in such a prestigious way.� She was presented with the award at the UBCO’s convocation ceremonies on June 7. Nutini, the daughter of Rossland’s David and Marjorie Nutini, attended St. Michael’s Elementary School in Trail and graduated from Rossland Secondary School before enrolling at Selkirk College, where she began her undergraduate studies. In an email reply to the Trail Daily Times, Nutini credited teach-

I started university with the skills and abilities required to be a successful student. “As for how I got into mathematics, my dad was my senior high school mathematics teacher. Without a doubt, my inspiration started with him.� She said her love of math is quite simple. “I love that there is only one right answer in mathematics. Unlike a facts-based course

like biology, I love that if you can’t remember how to solve a problem, you have a chance of working through the details and figuring it out.� Nutini earned a master’s degree of math at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in 2010 when she was awarded a Graduate Entrance Scholarship. She also received the UBC Okanagan Scholarship and a UBC Okanagan Fellowship. She worked with UBCO professor Warren Hare on developing a derivative-free opti-

mization algorithm for functions with smooth substructure. Nutini explained mathematical optimization looks at how to minimize or maximize a function. “For example, in economics, when companies want to minimize loss or maximize profit, they can use an optimization algorithm to do so.� Miriam Grant, dean of the College of Graduate Studies, saluted Nutini in a press release. “To cap her student experience at UBC’s Okanagan campus with the Governor General’s Award is a tribute to Julie’s dedication and diligent pursuit of investigative learning at the highest level.� Nutini’s education is not finished yet, however. She has been awarded a Postgraduate Scholarship – Doctoral from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council and will begin her PhD program in Computer Sciences at UBC’s Vancouver campus starting in September 2012.

Bears remain an issue BY ARNE PETRYSHEN Rossland News

Rossland’s bear population seems to have gone up quite a bit recently as the hungry animals make their way into town on the search for easy food. Sharon Wieder, Bear Aware community co-ordinator for Rossland and Trail, said each year the message is the same: “We’re going to have bears in the community because of where we live, there’s nothing we can do about that,” Wieder said, adding that the best way to keep bears moving along is to manage the attractants that get them to stay. “They’ll pass through on there own and if there’s nothing for the bears to eat, they will just keep going through.” The big attractant in the area is garbage, followed by the abundant fruit trees in the fall. “Some people just seem to think it’s okay to let the bears hang around and feed on the fruit trees but it’s not good,” she said. “The problem is that the bears usually end up having to be destroyed, because the garbage eating behavior cannot be unlearned,” she said. “If they start hanging around town and getting used to being around people then they become human habituated and they lose their fear of people and because they’re so driven by their nose and their need to eat that once they lose

their fear of people, they let there noses lead them into places.” She added that if a bear goes inside a building and then gets panicked, it will destroy the place. So she really tries to convince people to be more conscious about their garbage. “I know people get kind of tired of hearing it, but that’s the reality,” she said. “As a community we need to get together to make sure the bears don’t get in trouble and if that means getting together and putting a little pressure on the neighbour that is leaving garbage out or not picking their fruit, then maybe getting a neighbourhood group together could help.” Wieder also recently attended a West Kootenay bear conflict working group. The meeting was the first time that something like that is in the area. There, co-ordinators of other bear programs, conservation officers, wildlife biologists, municipal city staff and others met to talk about ways to pool resources to lessen the bears getting shot and destroyed. “It was encouraging to see that many people could come together,” she said. ”One of the ideas that came out of it is to be a little more proactive and meet with people in the community, like bring in a bear expert, get the community engaged and motivated to have more respect for the bears.”

Tax increase likely FROM PAGE 1 and Montrose taxes would remain about the same or be slightly lowered if amalgamation occurred. However, all classes of taxpayers in Area A of the RDKB would face significant property tax increases—around $300—if the Beaver Valley communities were to amalgamate. Unfortunately the tax increases in Area A would not be accompanied with significant service improvements, even though a new amalgamated local government would likely be more efficient. Area A director Ali Grieve said the committee took the report’s findings to the province to show them this was not the outcome they had hoped for, and if there was some way to make Area A’s impact neutral.

“There isn’t even a significant tax savings for anyone,” she said. “And the way the facts are presented right now, I don’t see anything I can sell to Area A.” If it were to pass, the boundary of the Beaver Valley District Municipality would include 100 per cent of the two villages’ population, and 80 per cent of Area A. The new municipality would take responsibility for all existing municipal services, three existing Beaver Valley services (parks and trails, recreation, arena), local planning, local roads within Area A, as well as animal control, building inspection and the water systems. The areas would collectively have to pay an additional $440,800 in local road costs for Area A and lose $50,000 in federal gas tax revenue sharing.

The new playground unit in Upper Sunningdale Park offers a wide array of activities.

City erects new playground units BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

The last two pieces of the playground puzzle are falling into place. The City of Trail has replaced the last two of its nearly two dozen old playground units across the city as part of its seven-year replacement plan. With the new units in Upper Sunningdale and the R.V. Park by Waneta Plaza having been installed last week, the city will now have completed its schedule to put brand new structures into place across the city. The city spent nearly $40,000

for the two units in 2011 but it wasn’t until 2012 that the sleek structures were installed. Like building codes that change over time, the 25-year-old playground equipment in the two parks—similar to the other parks across the city—had reached the point of an overhaul, said City of Trail parks and recreation director Trisha Davison. “They eventually get to the point where the technology of playgrounds changes, as does the safety (requirements) for people,” she said. The old wood, steel and plastic structures contained aesthet-

ic “holes” in the surfaces, but the spots were also havens for bees and wasps to set up their nests, it was found. “Obviously that became a problem in a children’s playground,” said Davison. The new structures contain no wood or holes in their surfaces. Public works went through a process seven years ago for all of the city’s parks to take out the old ones and put in new ones. The city was not in a position to install new playgrounds in new places, but instead embarked on a plan to put new structures in old places.

Trail airport not an option FROM PAGE 1 to increase reliability to this region … but we definitely support the inclusion of a major carrier at the West Kootenay Regional Airport in Castlegar. Whether that is Air Canada or it is WestJet it doesn’t make a difference who it is.” Although Pacific Coastal has proven to be far more reliable than Castlegar’s Air Canada service to Vancouver— a citizen’s report Trail sat at about 91 per cent reliable service in January while Castlegar slid to approximately 74 per cent—a deal for Trail is off the table.

Santori said he made a call to WestJet after the airline announced expansion plans earlier this year, but any serious consideration as a regional destination will not materialize, even though Westjet invited them to make a proposal. “The reality is they don’t land in unsecured airports,” he said, noting that Castlegar, not Trail, was secured. Improvements are planned to the Trail Airport, including updating old equipment, the possibility of paid employees, lengthening the runway and

building a new terminal building. WestJet provides scheduled service throughout its 71-city North American and Caribbean destinations. In January it announced it would like to go back to its roots and focus on short hauls, using a fleet of about 40 smaller turboprop aircrafts. The move is to serve small communities that have asked for its service, optimize the size of its aircrafts to efficiently increase frequency, and create new connections between existing WestJet markets.

The spring surge of the lower Fraser River is expected to peak by Friday morning, and to continue running at high levels through the weekend as forecast rain adds to snow melt. The B.C. River Forecast Centre expected peak flow volume to be reached Thursday at Mission, with a level of 6.38 metres at the Mission gauge by late in the day. Due to tidal influences, the river is expected to continue to rise through the weekend, with daily peak levels of up to 6.75 metres. The lower Fraser dike system is designed for river levels up to 8.89 metres, but the high water is raising flood risk in areas not protected by dikes. Residents of Barnston Island near Surrey were put on flood alert by local officials

Thursday, and Seabird Island near Chilliwack is also at risk of flooding. Environment Canada said a low pressure system off the B.C. coast is expected to spread rain to the South Coast by Friday and into the Interior by the weekend. Interior temperatures are expected to rise to near 30 degrees before the rain arrives, accelerating snow melt in areas such as the Skeena and Bulkley watersheds where much of the snowpack remains.

Q A

Is it better to purchase a Term Life insurance policy to protect my loan or mortgage, or to insure with the financial institution that holds my loan?

This is a question that tends to leave clients confused about how to insure a loan or mortgage. Some people are not aware that they have an option to purchase their own Term Life insurance policy to cover their mortgage instead of purchasing what the bank is offering.

Both types of policies will protect you in the event of death, however, the life insurance policy offered through the bank is completely owned and controlled by the bank. A term life insurance purchased through a life agent is owned and controlled by you. “Mortgage” insurance protects only one thing – the amount owing on the mortgage. If you were to pass away, the mortgage gets paid. The value of a term life insurance product does not decrease as your mortgage decreases. So for example, if your mortgage is $100,000 today and you purchased a term life insurance policy to cover that amount, 20 years from now your mortgage may be down to $30,000. Your term life insurance policy remains at $100,000. Upon death, the family would receive the full $100,000. They could then use $30,000 to pay off the balance owing on the mortgage and have $70,000 left to invest or use for other financial needs that may exist. The flexibility and freedom of term life policy not only protects you now but also gives you and your family protection for the future needs that may arise.

Population growing faster than ever THE CANADIAN PRESS REGINA - Saskatchewan is experiencing its greatest population growth in more than 80 years. Statistics Canada figures show almost 12,000 people came to the province between April 2011 and April 2012. And the people influx continues - the population grew by almost 4,500 in the first quarter of this year.

The province’s annual growth rate of almost 1.9 per cent is the second-highest in the country - only Alberta is higher. Saskatchewan’s population has grown by more than 75,000 people in the last five years and sits at just over one million. Economy Minister Bill Boyd says Saskatchewan continues to attract residents because its economy is firing on all cylinders.

Drug testing coming to oilpatch THE CANADIAN PRESS CALGARY - Three major oil companies in Alberta will be randomly testing workers for drugs and alcohol. Suncor Energy, Canadian Natural Resources and Total E&P Canada are participating in the twoyear pilot project start-

ing this fall. Project spokeswoman Pat Atkins says the companies have had drug and alcohol policies in place for the past decade. But they are still finding drug paraphernalia at work camps and plant sites, and want better results.

Atkins says if a worker tests positive, he or she will be assessed to see if they have an addiction and, if needed, will be offered treatment and a plan to return to work. Unions say the random tests are an invasion of privacy.

OTTAWA - Buying a first home or taking out a loan against an existing residence will be more difficult for Canadians under new rules announced Thursday, but Finance Minister Jim Flaherty says it’s for their own good. For the fourth time in as many years, the finance minister moved to tighten the mortgage and lending landscape - changes that mean up to five per cent of Canadians who might be considering buying a new home will likely no longer qualify. This time Flaherty’s cutting the maximum amortization period for government insured homes to 25 years from the current 30 years, and limiting how much homeowners can borrow on the value of their homes to 80 per cent from 85 per cent. Those are not the only changes the government is making. It will no longer be in the business of insuring homes that are worth more than $1 million - meaning buyers will need to put up at least a 20 per cent down payment or seek private insurance. As well, it will insist that prospective buyers have the means to afford mortgage payments, property taxes and heating costs on their home. It will do so by setting cost ratios based on household income - a kind of affordability ratio - of 39 per cent for gross debt service and 44 per cent for total debt service. “It’s a question of trying to moderate behaviour and I hope Canadians will reflect before they jump into a market at the high end,� Flaherty said. “It will mean that some people will not buy into the market, it will also mean that some people will buy less into the market, they’ll buy a less expensive home or less expensive condominium.� The changes go into effect July 9. The most significant change is the reduction

to the amortization period, bringing it back to the level it had stood historically before rising to as high as 40 years during the heady pre-recession days of 2006. The government said on a $350,000 mortgage with three per cent interest, it will increase monthly payments by $184 over what they would have been with a 30-year amortization. Over the lifetime of the mortgage, however, the homeowner will save $33,052 in total interest payments because the home would have been paid off five years earlier. 5)&,005&/":n4 05& &/":n4 0/-:

arley Mowatt called his memoir about the Second World War’s brutal Italian campaign “And No Birds Sang.” Spending a few evenings making kettle popcorn on Sunningdale’s main thoroughfare could be titled “And No Children Rang.” It’s as if a neutron bomb went off in the pleasant Trail subdivision and took only the kids, leaving the rest of the inhabitants and their houses intact. The aroma of cooking popcorn and caramelizing sugar wafting down Hazlewood Drive attracted numerous adults interested in what the Rotarian cornballs were up to. In Sunningdale’s early days, throngs of little curious flowers would also have appeared riding bikes, pulling wagons, and carrying balls and skipping ropes. Where have all the flowers gone? Gone to changing times, just about every one. We did see one cute little boy in the yard across the street. But with no others around, he was reduced to tossing a fris-

bee with his picture-perfect mother. It was a sight both sweet and sad to contemplate as we churned out our sugar-and-saltlaced bags of treats for an upcoming event. Driving back down Hazlewood at he end of the evening I checked the sign to see if it read Sunset Acres, but Sunningdale has not been turned into a restricted retirement community. It just looks that way, as do many other neighbourhoods in Greater Trail. In a similar vein, I was taken aback when I opened the Times recently to discover that the grad class at Rossland Secondary consisted of 44 students this year. Back in the day that was about the size of one classroom of students, not an entire grade level at a high school. I have not been among the pack of Trailites howling for the closure of Rossland Secondary. It is an excellent school with ferocious community support. In addition to providing benefits to Rosslanders and many of my fellow Warfielders, it

has also served an alternative for secondary students in the rest of the south end of the school district. Most parents are all for choices (beyond differing courses options within the same institution) and RSS provided that important role within reasonable busing distance. But you have to wonder whether these numbers are, to use a word popular in Rossland, sustainable. There are models that could continue to provide RSS students with the courses they need to prepare them for a range of post-secondary options, while being fair to the rest of the district in terms of its demands on the global

budget. But with neighbourhoods like Sunningdale feeding J. Lloyd Crowe there will still be a call for consolidation in order to sustain the traditional classroom model and course offerings at the East Trail school. I ran into a Rossland couple a few months back that I hadn’t talked to in some time. Their children are grown and prospering, but they remain keenly interested in RSS, as they do in all issues pertaining to their beloved Rossland. When the conversation turned to the future of RSS they were unequivocal: the high school should be closed. Trail is a short bus ride away, Rossland students would benefit from breaking out of their cocoons earlier, and a consolidated high school would sustain core course offerings as well provide more optional instruction. This was nothing that hadn’t been heard before, even occasionally from a Rosslander. But they lowered their voices when they said it, noting they couldn’t publicly say such

a thing. To do so would risk being strung up from the nearest chairlift tower. As another school year ends and we enter a toobrief summer snooze before the hand-wringing over the state of the school district’s finances renews itself as the leaves start to turn again, it is time to put old orthodoxies aside. Snarling advocates for closure down in the valley and those up in the clouds chanting our children and town will die without RSS, both miss the mark. There is no perfect and indisputably right decision about the future of schools in Trail anymore than there is about any number of public policy issues from patching potholes to going to the moon. What is called for is reasonable debate and disagreement before our elected officials have to knuckle down and make a decision. No wonder there is such a rush to sign up for school trustee elections every three years. Raymond Masleck is a retired Trail Times reporter.

Parliament needs to deal with assisted suicide

An editorial from the Toronto Star Gloria Taylor is a remarkable, brave woman. At 64, Lou Gehrig’s disease has left her relying on a feeding tube, unable to walk, with hands she says are all but useless. Her voice is beginning to fade. Yet for all that “I’m still here for living, and I hope for a long time,� she told reporters after a British Columbia court struck down Canada’s ban on physicianassisted suicide as a violation of her Charter rights to equality and life, liberty and security. “When it’s time it’s God’s will, not mine, and I’ll leave it at that.� B.C. Supreme Court Justice Lynn Smith gave Taylor the legal nod to seek help to end her life, and gave Ottawa a year to change the law. This is a wrenchingly divisive issue that leaves Prime Minister Stephen Harper, social conservatives in his caucus and many Canadians deeply conflicted. Famously, Harper declared in the 2006 election campaign that brought him to power that he wouldn’t propose changes to the law. “I think it’s important to resist the idea of giving the power to kill,� he said. However he also said he would allow a free vote on the issue, if ever it came before the House of Commons.

The ruling in Taylor’s case may hasten that day. While Ottawa can appeal to the Supreme Court, there’s no guarantee the law will hold. Back in 1993 the top court was sharply divided, ruling 5 to 4 against letting Sue Rodriguez seek help dying. The Star argued at the time that Parliament should bring in a law that would allow a person whose life has become a living agony to get help ending it. Rather than punt the problem to the courts, Parliament should muster the courage to face it, and decide under what circumstances a competent person with a grave illness should be allowed help to commit suicide. Most Canadians seem to support what Justice Smith envisages, a tightly circumscribed, closely monitored system that amounts to an “almost absolute prohibition,� but that in exceptional cases gives “grievously and irremediably ill adult persons who are competent, fullyinformed, non-ambivalent and free from coercion or duress� the option to seek a doctor’s help to end their lives. Canada decriminalized suicide 40 years ago. The ban on physician-assisted suicide - or “assisted dying� as Taylor prefers - today acts as a bar chiefly to those so acutely incapacitated that they cannot take their own

lives. In Justice Smith’s eyes, that adds injustice to suffering. Of course, principled voices disagree. The Canadian Medical Association opposes euthanasia and assisted suicide. So do many who work with and advocate for the disabled. Such groups stress the need for broader palliative care and other supports to let people die fully medicated against pain, and with dignity. As Taylor says, no one should have to fear “screaming at the top of my lungs because the pain is so great� at life’s end. They also raise the spectre of the “slippery slope.� Once assisted suicide is allowed for competent, suffering, terminally ill people, they say, there could be a Charter case to extend it to those who are not competent, suffering or terminally ill. Worse, the elderly, disabled and other vulnerable people might be coaxed or coerced into suicide. These are serious concerns, honestly held. Justice Smith was not blind to them. She proposed a regime that she believes would go a long way to addressing them. But Parliament, not the courts, should be the final arbiter. It should affirm the right to assisted suicide but enact strict limits to ensure against abuse. Ottawa has a year to get its act together.

LEROY NEIMAN

Artist was official painter for five Olympiads THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK - LeRoy Neiman, the painter and sketch artist best known for evoking the kinetic energy of the world’s biggest sporting and leisure events with bright quick strokes, died Wednesday at age 91. Neiman also was a contributing artist at Playboy magazine for many years and official painter of five Olympiads. His longtime publicist Gail Parenteau confirmed his death Wednesday but didn’t disclose the cause. Neiman was a media-savvy artist who knew how to enthrall audiences with his instant renditions of what he observed. In 1972, he sketched the world chess tournament between Boris Spassky and Bobby Fischer in Reykjavik, Iceland, for a live television audience. He also produced live drawings of the Olympics for TV and was the official computer artist of the Super Bowl for CBS. Neiman’s “reportage of history and the passing scene ... revived an almost lost and timehonoured art form,” according to a 1972 exhibit catalogue of the artist’s Olympics sketches at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. “It’s been fun. I’ve had a lucky life,” Neiman said in a June 2008 interview with The Associated Press. “I’ve zeroed in on what you would call action and excellence. ... Everybody who does anything to try to succeed has to give the best of

themselves, and art has made me pull the best out of myself.” Neiman’s paintings, many executed in household enamel paints that allowed the artist his fast-moving strokes, are an explosion in reds, blues, pinks, greens and yellows of pure kinetic energy. He has been described as an American impressionist, but the St. Paul, Minnesota, native preferred to think of himself simply as an American artist. “I don’t know if I’m an impressionist or an expressionist,” he told the AP. “You can call me an American first. ... (but) I’ve been labeled doing neimanism, so that’s what it is, I guess.” He worked in many media, producing thousands of etchings, lithographs and silkscreen prints known as serigraphy. But his critics said Neiman’s forays into the commercial world minimized him as a serious artist. At Playboy, for example, he created Femlin, the well-endowed nude that has graced the magazine’s Party Jokes page since 1957. Neiman shrugged off such criticism. “I can easily ignore my detractors and feel the people who respond favourably,” he said. Neiman was fascinated with large game animals, and twice travelled to Kenya to paint lions and elephants “in the bush” in his trademark vibrant palette. But it was the essence of a

LeRoy Neiman, who is best known for his colorful and energetic paintings of sporting events, died Wednesday in New York. He was 91. basketball or football game, swim meet or cycling event that captured his imagination most. “For an artist, watching a (Joe) Namath throw a football or a Willie Mays hit a baseball is an experience far more overpowering than painting a beautiful woman or leading political figure,” Neiman said in 1972. With his sketchbook and pencil, trademark handlebar moustache and slicked back hair, Neiman was instantly recognizable. At a New York Jets game at Shea Stadium in 1975, fans yelled, “Put LeRoy in,” when the play wasn’t going their way. Neiman’s decades-long asso-

ciation with Playboy began in 1953 following a chance meeting with Hugh Hefner. It was the start of what he called “the good life” and inspiration for much of his future work. His works are in the permanent collections of many private and public museums. The Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., was selected by Neiman to house his archives. “I just love what I do,” Neiman said. “I love the passion you go through while you’re creating” and the public’s “very thoughtful and careful studied and emotional reaction of what you’re doing. “It’s a wonderful feeling.”

Woman shaves head for charity, wins Miss Alaska THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Just three months ago, Debbe Ebben had no hair. On Saturday night, she was crowned Miss Alaska. Ebben shaved her head in March to raise more than $4,000 for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, which donates money for childhood cancer research. She said she did it to let children who lost their hair because of cancer treatments know that it was OK to be bald. Choosing her words carefully, she said losing one’s hair should be special - whether it’s voluntary or not. “I wanted to put meaning and emotion behind it, and let them know why I’m doing it - for the kids,” she said. “I’m not shaving it to get attention. I’m not shaving it for publicity. I’m not shaving it because it’s a

really easy hairstyle to go with. I’m shaving it for them.” Ebben’s brown hair had grown back to a pixie cut by the time she became the state’s top beauty queen over the weekend, but she says she will likely keep her hair short when she represents Alaska at the Miss America pageant in January 2013. “I’ll let it do its thing for a while,” she said, laughing. “I’ll consult the hair stylist before I go down.” Ebben was the reigning Miss Chugiak-Eagle River when she picked St. Baldrick’s for the public service project that is required of all Miss Alaska pageant contestants. Baldrick’s gets its name from a combination of the words “bald” and “St. Patrick.” The organization was founded by three insur-

ance executives who turned a St. Patrick’s Day party into a head-shaving event to help children with cancer. Ebben said she got a feel of what the children go through. “Like children who are fighting cancer, losing my hair was a really emotional experience, and something I hope they only have to go through once in their life,” she said. As she approached the Miss Alaska pageant, she had to decide whether to keep the look. Her drastic haircut had been done in honour of a child, and she decided to let grow back her hair, so that the haircut wouldn’t be mistaken for a gimmick. “I don’t want to be branded as the ‘bald beauty queen,”’ she said. She’s had two haircuts since

March, and her hair is two inches at its longest. In the upcoming year, she said, she plans to work with St. Baldrick’s and Headbands of Hope, which donates a spandex headband to a sick child and $1 to St. Baldrick’s for every headband it sells. Bonnie Faulk, director of the Miss Alaska Scholarship Foundation, calls Ebben the epitome of the standards and values of the program. “We are elated to have this young woman serve us,” Faulk said. “She has worked harder than many, many, many contestants in many years. “She’s out there. She’s the real deal,” Faulk said, who added that Ebben loves children and charitable events. “She’s what our program is about.”

TRAIL & DISTRICT CHURCHES The Way to Get More Things Done A number of years ago a fascinating interview took place between Mr. Charles Schwab, then president of Bethlehem Steel, and Ivy Lee, a self-styled management consultant. Lee was an aggressive, selfconďŹ dent man who by his perseverance had secured the interview with Mr. Schwab, who was no less self-assured, being one of the most powerful men in the world. During the conversation, Mr. Lee asserted that if the management of Bethlehem Steel would follow his advice, the company’s operations would be improved and their proďŹ ts increased. Schwab responded, “If you can show us a way to get more things done, I’ll be glad to listen; and if it works, I’ll pay you whatever you ask within reason.â€? Lee handed Schwab a blank piece of paper and said, “Write down the most important things you have to do tomorrow.â€? Mr. Schwab did so. “Now, “ Lee continued, “Number them in order of importance.â€?

Schwab did so. “Tomorrow morning start on number one, and stay with it until you have completed it. Then go on to number two and number three and number four... Don’t worry if you haven’t completed everything by the end of the day. At least you will have completed the most important projects. Do this every day. After you have been convinced of the value of this system, have your men try it. Try it as long as you like, and then send me your check for whatever you think the advice is worth.â€? The two men shook hands and Lee left the president’s ofďŹ ce. A few weeks later Charles Schwab sent Ivy Lee a check for $25,000-an astronomical amount in the 1930s! He said it was the most proďŹ table lesson he had learned in his long business career. K. Hughes, Liberating Ministry From The Success Syndrome, Tyndale, 1988, p. 54.

Movie shows how people can transform

I

n “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel�, a group of seniors “outsource� their retirement to India. Despite its predictability, the film works because of the outstanding cast of seasoned British actors. The characters are strangers to one another until they meet en route to Jaipur. They are the first group of guests at the hotel, whose LOUISE proprietor, Sonny (Dev Patel) has misrepresented its grandeur in promotional Everyday Theology material. Sonny’s idea is to restore the property and “outsource aging� because people in the west dislike the elderly. There is a pointed comment about contemporary western attitudes towards the elderly in Sonny’s dream of creating a “home for the elderly, so wonderful that they will simply refuse to die.� This charming movie deals in a lighthearted way with the challenges of aging as it explores issues such as health, loss and loneliness, independence, and financial constraints. As the characters attempt to reconcile the changes that come with aging, the audience is treated to some relevant insights about life. The young Sonny lives by the mantra, “Everything will be all right in the end. So if it is not all right, it is not yet the end.� Despite “catastrophes�, he is unshakeable in his conviction that things eventually work towards the good. Sonny embodies the virtue of hope. Muriel (Maggie Smith) has gone to India for a free, fast tracked hip replacement. At her age, she could die during the 6-month waiting period at home. She sarcastically tells the doctor, “I don’t even buy green bananas!� Her hilarious delivery packs an important “carpe diem� punch. The future is uncertain so live to the fullest extent possible. The poignancy of Muriel’s situation is revealed as the film progresses. She struggles with feelings of rejection and uselessness, but she is not ready to give up living. Perhaps more than any other character in the film, she transforms her situation by first transforming her inner self. In order to supplement her meager income, Evelyn, (Judi Dench) finds a job at a call center as a cultural adviser. Confused about technology at the beginning of the film, she blogs about her experiences in India on the “interweb�. She posts, “The only real failure is the failure to try, and success is measured by how we cope with disappointment.� Evelyn’s post is an encouraging shove to anyone who finds it difficult, if not downright impossible, to wander out of their established comfort zone. Graham (Tom Wilkinson) emerges as the most sympathetic character. Graham, haunted by an incident from his youth, is in search of reconciliation and healing. Love transforms the painful memory, and Graham is finally freed from a lifetime of guilt. Graham’s story speaks to the difficult reality of healing painful memories, and learning to forgive one’s self. At its core, this film is about people transforming their situations. While I didn’t agree with the choices that some of the other characters made en route to transformation, I left the theater with a smile on my face and in my heart.

BASEBALL HALL OF FAME

Kissock enters hallowed ground BY TIMES STAFF

Riley Brandt helped his own cause by stealing home as the Trail Astros beat the Dodgers 8-1 to win the Junior Babe Ruth Trail Baseball championship game Wednesday at Pople Park. Brandt pitched a two-hitter for the win and his first title in minor ball, while Jayme Stopanski, Brandt, Tyler Atkinson, Chris Colquhoun, Ryan Neil and Kyle Sukeroff all had key hits for the Astros.

MASTER BOWLER’S CANADIAN CHAMPIONSHIP

Rich ready to roll at nationals BY JIM BAILEY Times Sports Editor

Trail bowler Darren Rich is hoping to get richer as he takes to the national bowling lanes next week to play for the Canadian singles title. Rich has amassed a wealth of gold, silver, and bronze in provincial and national competition over the years and with another win at the B.C. Master Bowlers championship in April, the fivepin aficionado is looking to add to his collection as he travels to St. John’s, Nfld. on Thursday to compete in the Master Bowlers’ Canadian championship. “I’m not as excited as the first time I went to these kind of championships, but I am excited,” said Rich. “I’ve been looking forward to this one for a couple of years, because I haven’t gone there (Newfoundland) so this year is a little more special for me.” Rich also won the B.C. Open singles title in 2010, a feat accomplished by only two other Kootenay bowlers, Trail’s Ron Sandnes in 1980 and 1993, and Nelson’s Red Brochu in 1984. He won the B.C. Master’s singles in 2005, won gold at the nationals in 2006

and 2009 in the team competition, took silver in pairs with partner Sandnes in 2010, and won bronze in singles at the Canadian Open in 2011. Rich won the 2012 B.C. Master Bowlers singles title by bowling in six different events. He dominated the standings, bowling a game average of over 280, six points more than his nearest rival, and throwing the highest eightgame-match total of the season, 2,538, at Dell Lanes in Surrey in February. As the top bowler on the Master’s circuit Rich will represent B.C. in singles at the nationals and the next best five bowlers compete in the team category. While the 41-year-old C.P. Rail worker will miss the comradery of playing in the team competition, he is eager to take the next step. “For myself if I had to choose, I would definitely choose a team because you have your teammates with you so you’re battling together . . . but since I’ve already won a couple of team national championships, I’d kind of like to win a singles championship.” The competition will be fierce in St. Johns, with many familiar rivals hitting

the lanes. “Usually there’s one or two guys that come out of nowhere, but this year it looks like the dream team going out there - it should be fun,” he added. Rich will go head-to-head in match play competition against the best in Canada with the winner of each match taking two points. The player that amasses the most points gets a bye to the final. While the next four seeds battle it out in a stepladder format. Whoever emerges from the playoff must then beat the top seed twice to win. “That is key,” said Rich. “Then you’re waiting for the other guys to come to you.” His experience on the national stage and impressive run through provincial qualifying events should serve Rich well in Newfoundland. “I had a pretty good year, and I’m throwing the ball pretty well, but you never know. Whoever gets hot its going to win basically, but I like my chances.” After a practice day Friday, Rich will play his first game against Northern Ontario’s Jeff Watts Saturday morning.

Trail’s Chris Kissock will enter the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame on Saturday along with his Team Canada baseball teammates. The national team was named to the Hall after winning Canada’s first ever baseball gold medal at the Pan Am Games in Mexico last October. Along with a bronze at the World Cup in Panama, this makes this team the most successful in Baseball Canada’s history. At the Pan Am Games Kissock was instrumental in Team Canada’s 5-3 semi-final win over Mexico, as he came in and closed out the last two innings to earn the save and send the Canadians to the championship game. This led to a 2-1 victory against the USA in the final, which surprised the baseball world. The former Trail Oriole was also in the bullpen in the gold-medal game warming up in the final innings, ready to go if called upon. “As a player and a pitcher (the highlight) was closing out the semi-final game against Mexico and getting us to the final game - but the whole (team) highlight was winning against Team U.S.A.,” Kissock said following the tournament. “That game was just an unbelievable game, so nerve wracking.” The team joins fellow inductees Rusty Staub, Doug Melvin, and Rheal Cormier at the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame Museum in St. Mary’s, Ont. for the ceremony Saturday. Kissock pitches for the Reading Phillies in the Double-A Eastern League and was drafted in the 9th round of the 2007 Major League Baseball Draft. He has played baseball professionally for six years. After starting this season strong at spring training camp in March, Kissock suffered an injury that has left him sidelined since early May. He has now recovered and is happy to be back on the field.

were also non-Canadians. There are still many good Canadian NHL players. It’s just that the outstanding ones almost all seem to hail from offshore. Canada will enter the next Olympic tournament as the fifth seed, an unthinkably low position just a decade ago, and won’t be favoured to medal, never mind win. It isn’t just the flair positions that are dominated by, “outsiders,” either. The top goalie was a Swede, as was the top defenceman. The Conn Smythe trophy for this year’s playoff round went to an American, playing on a team captained by an American that defeated another team captained by an American (albeit one with Canadian bloodlines). The Lady Bing award for clean play went to a Canadian who had a minus-15 season. There were two Canadians, James Neal and Shea Weber, on the first all-star team, and I suppose we can take some comfort in three on the second unit, but all-in-all it paints a woeful picture of the route Canadian Hockey

has taken - toughness or grit or whatever and systems play is the endall of our coaching. Fun doesn’t matter and individual skill is left to some creator or other. There is still a very good living to be made by defensive-minded Canadian players, witness local Barrett Jackman’s recent renewal as a core player in the very defensive-minded St. Louis franchise, but top-tier (first line, power play) spots, from whence the entertainment value in pro hockey (and the fun in amateur play) proceeds, are mostly reserved for players who have learned to turn quickly and handle the puck. Players like that more often than not hail from non-Canadian training and coaching systems these days. Canada is still the pre-eminent producer of players in North American pro leagues, so this issue is important to everybody. Will Canadian executives and coaches get the message here, or will the game become even more dreary as time wears on? Stay tuned - for at least as long as you can stay awake, anyway.

GARDENING

Hydrangeas provide hardy addition to flowerbeds

I

’m definitely not a fan of winter snow but when there’s three feet of it outside, I try to put on a positive spin by thinking of how great it is for those who love outdoor winter sports. For those who find the constant rain painful, please think of all the new shrubs and trees planted in Kootenay gardens this spring. They couldn’t ask for better conditions to help get growing!

PATTY

SIDDALL Ground Rules in Gardening In spite of our lack of sun, all my conifers have put forth a new flush of growth and my new hydrangeas are starting to flower. When I recently moved I wanted to bring my beautiful Quickfire hydrangea (hydrangea paniculata ‘Bulk) with me but it was too entrenched in the roots of a mature Ivory Silk lilac tree so I had to buy a new one. It’s definitely one plant I don’t want to be without! Along with the Quickfire, I’ve strategically placed four of its cousins along the fence around the perimeter of the back garden bed; ‘Invincibelle Spirit’, ‘Pinky Winky’, (you

said pinky winky..... heeheehee)‘Fire and Ice’ and ‘Vanilla Strawberry’. These are my top choice for flowering shrubs because they bloom and provide lots of colour through most of our season – from early July through October. I’ve spoken before about the Quickfire and am pleased to say it always is a beautiful addition to the garden. It can be planted in full sun to part shade and matures at 6 feet tall x 4 feet wide with white flowers that transform to a rich, deep pink in fall. I’ve also mentioned the ‘Invincibelle Spirit’ (hydrangea arborescens) with its stunning pink flowers that bloom on new wood; the first-ever pink Annabelle hydrangea; will do well in full to part sun and matures at 4 feet tall and wide. The “Pinky Winky’ (hydrangea paniculata ‘DVPpinky’) has been around for a few years so some of you might already be enjoying one in the garden. Its strong upright red stems hold the large two-toned, white and pink flowers from drooping like the ‘Pee Gee’. It will take full sun to part shade and grow to about 6 feet tall. The “Fire and Ice” specimen (hydrangea paniculata ‘Wim’s Red’), a gift from my sister, is a new hybrid that will produce flower clusters, opening in a beauti-

Greater Trail area so can be enjoyed by all! It’s not too late to plant one, two, three or more to add magnificent, colourful blooms to your garden for the rest of the season, hopefully in

lots of summer sun! Patty Siddall operates a local garden business and shares this space with business partner Betty Drover every other Friday. Contact: 250364-1005

It’s a bit smaller (3 feet tall and wide) and prefers part shade. “ V a n i l l a Strawberry” (hydrangea paniculata) is a new French introduction and member of

Don’t blame waitress for husband’s bad behaviour Dear Annie: My husband and I are in our 60s and have been married for 28 years. We recently retired. My husband and I both enjoy stopping at neighborhood bars for a drink before dinner, but I’ve noticed that he indulges quite a lot and often starts at lunchtime. The problem is, after he has had a few glasses of wine, he begins to get a little forward with the female servers. He kisses the hand of the waitress, which I believe is his way of showing appreciation. I support his empathy for the hard work these young women do. However, in the latest episode, he grabbed a waitress’s hand and held it for what seemed to be an unnecessarily long time. I thought the waitress should have withdrawn her hand, and I asked her what she was still doing there. I did not make a big fuss, but she with-

drew her hand and left, visibly upset. I realize that I was rude, but it seemed like my husband was unaware of the consequences of his actions. Since then, I have avoided going back to that bar, but I don’t know a permanent solution to this kind of embarrassment. Should I avoid going to a bar after my husband has had one too many? That means we cannot stay at a bar longer than 45 minutes, because he drinks quickly. He gets grumpy if I try to leave too soon, because he always thinks he is fine. It also means I have to cut short my

own enjoyment. We have been lucky that we’ve avoided any incidents with law enforcement personnel. I need your counsel. -- Uncertain and Afraid Dear Uncertain: Please don’t blame the waitresses for your husband’s inappropriate behavior. He is drinking too much to control his flirting and keep it within acceptable bounds. If he starts at lunch, it sounds as if he is developing a serious drinking problem. Don’t be naive about it. Contact Al-Anon (alanon.alateen.org) for more information. Dear Annie: My husband and I have been married for 30 years. My son (his stepson) is in his 40s and is married with two young sons. The problem is, my husband refuses to treat the grandchildren as his own. It is awkward when I spend time with them and my husband stays home.

But it also makes my son feel terrible, and it breaks my heart. I’ve tried everything to get my husband to feel differently, but he won’t budge. It’s starting to affect our marriage, as we spend less time together with the family. I love my husband, but I’m not going to sacrifice my relationship with my son and his family. Any advice? -- Sad Mom Dear Sad: We assume your husband helped raise your son. We are amazed and disappointed that he doesn’t feel close enough to him to treat the grandchildren with more affection. Has your husband always been distant from your son? If it’s a relatively new reaction, suggest that he get a thorough physical from his doctor. Behavioral changes can indicate medical problems. Otherwise, spend as much time with your son and his family as you wish. Do

not make excuses for your husband. He is what he is, take it or leave it. Dear Annie: This is in response to “No Good Solution for this Arithmetic Problem,” who asked how to divide the costs for a vaca-

tion rental between three families of differing sizes coming from different locations. I would divide half of the cost in thirds, and the other half would be divided according to the number attending. This is both a com-

promise and a reflection of the fact that part of the costs are per family and some of the costs are per person. -Simi Valley, Calif. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar.

LEISURE

YOUR HOROSCOPE By Francis Drake For Saturday, June 23, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Because you feel sympathetic toward a family member today, this is a good day to let someone cry on your shoulder. Welcome the opportunity to help someone you love. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You might spend time daydreaming today, because your mind keeps drifting into fantasies. That’s OK; it’s just what it is. But do avoid work that requires attention to detail! GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) If shopping today, you’ll be tempted to buy something luxurious and elegant. Just make sure you won’t be shocked when the bill arrives later. Because it will! CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Today you feel gentle and sympathetic toward others. In fact, it’s almost as if you’re doing a mind meld with

someone and you instinctively know what this person needs and wants. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) It’s easy to put the needs and wants of others before your own today. You might say you’re having a Mother Teresa day, where you feel good about helping those who are less fortunate. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You find it rewarding to work with others, especially charitable organizations for those who are needy or suffering. You’ll feel gratified to make a difference in someone’s life. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) People in authority see you in positive terms today. You appear reasonable, sympathetic and agreeable to whatever they say. (That’s a good cover.) SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Because your apprecia-

tion of beauty is heightened today, give yourself a chance to enjoy beautiful things! Visit parks, galleries, museums, beautiful buildings or pristine nature. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) If you have to share something with someone today, you might go overboard on his or her behalf. Remember that you deserve to have a healthy self-interest as well.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Relations with partners and close friends are mutually sympathetic today. If someone is down, you will console him or her. If someone is happy, you’ll share his or her happiness. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A co-worker might want your help today or perhaps just your attention. It never hurts to genuinely listen to

someone, does it? PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Romance is the stuff of fairy dust today. Love at first sight is possible for some of you. Many of you will feel sympathetic to the needs of children. YOU BORN TODAY You’re a romantic who is drawn to the arts, especially music and literature. (Your personal relationships are the stuff of movies.) You are social and love

CRESTON

Parents to pay for outof-catchment busing BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Creston Valley Advance

Parents of children who attend schools out of their catchment area are going to have to start paying for busing, School District No. 8 (Kootenay Lake) trustees have decided. A motion by trustee Lenora Trenaman, who represents Crawford Bay, East Shore and West Shore, to direct senior staff not to implement busing fees of $20 per month per child was defeated at Tuesday’s board meeting in Nelson. The board of education meeting included more than 24 parents, teachers and principals, who attended at the Creston Education Centre by videoconference. Trenaman introduced her motion by apologizing to the board, parents and staff, explaining that through

the budget discussion process, she had not caught the new plan to implement busing charges. “How did I not pick up on this?” she asked. “I can’t give you a good answer about how I missed it. But I did.” Town of Creston trustee and board chair Mel Joy sided with the administration’s recommendation. “I put a huge value on the catchment schools,” she said. “I have a difficult time with fees, but when I know that there is a good school in each community, I think we are making the right decision. Charging fees for out-of-catchment students for me comes second to the strength of our community schools.” Despite Trenaman’s caution that “this is a slippery slope”, the board narrowly defeated her motion.

FortisBC is advising local residents that Kootenay Lake levels reach 1752 ft. at Queen’s Bay on June 18th, and may possibly reach 1753 ft. in the next few days.

FortisBC has been operating the Kootenay River system at the maximum discharge since the middle of March and will continue to do so until after the lake peaks.

Queen’s Bay:

Present level: 1752.15 ft. 7 day forecast: Up 8 to 12 inches. 2011 peak: 1751.71 ft. / 2010 peak: 1748.68 ft.

Nelson:

Present level: 1749.54 ft. 7 day forecast: Up 8 to 12 inches.

Revelstoke teachers rallied in Grizzly Plaza Wednesday to mark one year since they’ve been without a contract. A small group of teachers held placards and at the Victoria Road intersection, getting honks of support from some drivers. Revelstoke Teachers’ Association (RTA) president Bill MacFarlane has spent much of the past year at the bargaining table in the Lower Mainland, but was back in Revelstoke for the rally. He said he felt the B.C. Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) has been at a disadvantage from the start, saying the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association (BCPSEA) anticipated the government would step in: “[The BCPSEA] knew that Abbott would legislate right from the beginning, so, right away, that puts them at an advantage. They’ve got all the power ... through the government.” MacFarlane says he’s concerned the whole process is heading towards an imposed contract.

CLASSIFIEDS

SUNDAY/MONDAY HOROSCOPE By Francis Drake For Sunday, June 24, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You’ve been feeling an increasing need to rebel against authority lately. Now the moment for it seems to have arrived. Easy does it. Don’t do anything you’ll regret later. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Think twice about everything you say and do, because an unconscious need to resist others might make you do something you’ll later regret. (It’s hard to pinpoint when it’s unconscious.) GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Relations with a group might be torn apart today. This could be with one friend in particular, or you might simply leave the entire group. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) If you can, you will try to strike out on your own now. You want more independence in your life, both personally and professionally. Nevertheless, easy does it. Go

slowly. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Something might occur that radically changes your belief system or alters it in some way. Or you may take an entirely new approach to higher education, publishing, the media, medicine or the law. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your relationship to the wealth of others (including shared debt) might be undergoing a revolutionary change. This is something that was unavoidable. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Relations with partners and close friends are being tested now. Those who have outlived their usefulness will die on the vine. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Many of you will strive harder than ever before to be self-employed. You feel a strong need to rely only on yourself and be your own boss. (There’s nothing wrong with that.)

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You feel competitive at sports events or anything related to show business, the hospitality industry and possibly even with children. Failing romances will end now. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Major changes are taking place at home or possibly within your family dynamic. Whatever happens ultimately will be for the best. These changes were overdue. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) This is an accident-prone time for your sign, so pay attention to everything you say and do. That way you won’t have reasons for regret later. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Keep an eye on your earnings and your cash-flow scene. Something appears to be unstable here. Some of you might undergo a sudden change of jobs, which you have been suspecting might

happen. YOU BORN TODAY You become intensely involved with whatever you do. Many of you develop a particular technique or skill that you use. You like to work in your own private world; however, you also like to explore spiritual realms, because you are aware of the consequences of your actions. Good news! Your year ahead might be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big. Birthdate of: Lionel Messi, soccer player; Liane Balaban, actress; Curt Smith, musician. For Monday, June 25, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your idealism is aroused now, which is why you seek out people you admire. You also enjoy reading or learning inspirational things because you want to grow in wisdom. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) When it comes to moneymaking ideas today, the sky is the limit. However, make sure your ideas are realistic (even if you’re spending money), because your thoughts might be too pie-in-the-sky. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You feel inspired now to be the best you can possibly be. You sense that the opportunities to do so are at hand and the rest is up to you. You’re right -- it is up to you.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your awareness that your own happiness is involved with helping others is growing. Furthermore, you see that a lot of your limitations are self-imposed! LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You feel inspired because you know that you have a chance to help others or enlighten them in some way. Use your knowledge to teach them in any way you can. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Others respect you today. In particular, those in power might ask you to take on increased responsibilities, in which you can influence things for the better. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) If you can learn more about philosophy, religion or other belief systems, you will feel inspired today. If you’re lucky, you might meet a person who is a valuable teacher. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Others are generous to you now, and it is occurring to you that what goes around comes around. Perhaps your own generosity in the past is what is bringing you this good fortune now? SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You want your closest relationships to be meaningful. Just make sure your demands are realistic, because, after

SATURDAY’S CROSSWORD

all, we are all frail mortals. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Your hopes to create something better at work might come to fruition now. In a way, it’s simply your hard work paying off, isn’t it? AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Your creativity can soar today! Enjoy artistic work, playful activities with children, the entertainment world and, of course, romance. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You have an opportunity to make wonderful changes at home or even in your family now. Do whatever you can, and remember that motivation is everything. YOU BORN TODAY You are imaginative and original. You’re also aware of what you’re dealing with, including your limitations, which is why you succeed. However, it’s important for you to have the respect and support of others. In turn, you are nurturing to others as well. In the year ahead, something you’ve been involved with for nine years will end or diminish in order to make room for something new. Birthdate of: Romio Dallaire, humanitarian/ author; Anthony Bourdain, chef/author; Celia Franca, ballet dancer. (c) 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.
