Increase on electricity rates starts January 1

KELOWNA, B.C. December 7, 2012: Starting Jan. 1, 2013, FortisBC residential electricity customers will see a 4.2 per cent increase on their electricity bills from the recent BC Utilities Commission revenue requirements decision, along with a 2.3 per cent increase from rate rebalancing. The cumulative rate adjustment for residential customers will mean an increase of 6.6 per cent. For the average residential customer using 1,050 kWh per month, the change is an increase of approximately $7.07 per month. “FortisBC works to provide our customers with safe, reliable electricity at the lowest reasonable cost,” said Tom Loski, FortisBC vice president of customer service, “but changes in the external environment are causing pressure on our rates such as financing system maintenance and improvements, along with increased purchases of power.” The BC Utilities Commission approved the 4.2 per cent increase for FortisBC electricity customers as part of the utility’s 2012/2013 revenue requirements.

Timber deal reached to rebuild mill Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – The partners in the Burns Lake sawmill destroyed in a fatal fire in January have accepted the conditions for rebuilding the mill. To the community’s relief, the announcement comes despite last week’s decision by WorkSafeBC to refer their fire investigations at Babine Forest Products in Burns Lake and a later fire at Lakeland Mills in Prince George, to Crown counsel for possible charges. Two workers died and 42 others injured in the two fires, which WorkSafeBC concluded were caused by dust explosions. “I’m very pleased with the decision,” said Nechako Lakes MLA John Rustad, who joined officials in Burns Lake Tuesday for the announcement. He said it delivers on a promise made by Premier Christy Clark when she visited the community in the hours after disaster struck. Steve Zika, CEO of Oregon-based Hampton Affiliates, and Albert Gerow, CEO of Burns Lake Native Development Corp., announced in September that they would rebuild if an agreement could be reached with the B.C. government to supply enough timber in the wake of the pine beetle epidemic. Rustad chaired the committee that reviewed the timber supply and determined it could support existing mills in the region and a reconstructed Babine sawmill. It requires all six aboriginal communities in the region to commit timber rights to the new mill, including new area-based Crown forest tenures that the B.C. government has promised to award under legislation that still must be passed. “I can imagine the other mills in the area would much rather have seen Hampton not rebuilt, because it means easier log access for them, and not as much competition,” Rustad said. The deal also depended on re-inventory of areas affected by pine beetle, after the epidemic has run its course. He said inventory work in the Quesnel forest district, which was infested earlier, has shown a better survival rate of trees and stronger regrowth than expected.

Laura Blackwell/Lakes District News

Babine Forest Products mill in Burns Lake Jan. 20, 2012, after dry wood dust exploded and caused a fire that killed two employees and injured 20 others. A similar fatal explosion and fire struck a Prince George mill in April.

Cariboo North MLA Bob Simpson disputed that conclusion, saying Rustad is overstating the results from Quesnel. Simpson said the Quesnel forest is more productive than the northwest, and the optimistic projection depends on beetle-killed wood being harvested while live trees are left for later, which is not happening. “It’s all a hyper-optimistic what-if exercise by some silviculture people,” Simpson said. The government plans to table legislation in the new year to allow area-based forest licences to be direct awarded to aboriginal communities, and supplemental licences that allow greater access to waste wood for pellets and other biofuel. The WorkSafeBC investigation found that the most likely fuel source for the two explosions was fine, dry dust, which increases when mills cut dry trees killed by beetles. The likely ignition source in both cases was motor and gear assemblies running waste conveyors in low, confined areas of the mills subject to heavy dust accumulation.

Rates - continued from page 1

electricity rates are because of rate rebalancing. Last year, FortisBC announced rate rebalancing which ensures that each customer group pays their share of the costs required to serve them, but does not generate extra revenue for FortisBC. “This is the final phase of rate rebalancing for our residential customers that came as a result of our cost of service analysis. This analysis is done periodically to ensure rates are fair and equitable between customer groups and that no one customer class is subsidizing another,” said Loski. Therefore, the cumulative rate adjustment starting Jan. 1 for other FortisBC electricity customers will see small business customers receiving a 5.5 per cent reduction; lighting customers will see a 6.8 per cent increase; wholesale customers will see a 5.9 per cent increase and Nelson wholesale will also see an increase of 4.6 per cent. FortisBC continues to offer programs and services to help customers manage their electricity use through its PowerSense program. The FortisBC PowerSense program provides customers both financial incentives and helpful advice on energy efficient technologies and practices that can reduce electricity bills. For more information on the 2012/2013 revenue requirement decision or to view the rate rebalancing news releases from December or April, 2011 please visit fortisbc.com.

Helping businesses with the return to PST The government of B.C. is reaching out to businesses to help them prepare for the return of the Provincial Sales Tax (PST) with all permanent exemptions on April 1, 2013. Provincial business registration and outreach: Government increased business outreach activities in October and November to explain the timeline for re-implementation of the PST, what assistance is available to business, how to register, and to promote the new e-services option, eTaxBC. This new online service will make administration of the sales tax easier for businesses. Starting Jan. 2, 2013, eTaxBC services will be available for online registration. Chambers of commerce and business organizations are being offered special seminars covering the general principals of the PST and eTaxBC. Six were held in November and more are under development. Here are some of the return to PST tools and services that are now available to help keep businesses informed during the transition: * Book a one-on-one consultation with a ministry tax specialist. So far over 800 requests have been received and over 160 consultations have been completed. * Participate in an online webinar covering the general principles of the PST and eTaxBC. Over 300 businesses have registered for webinars, three webinars have been held and more are being scheduled for December. * Call the toll-free number with questions about the new PST (1 877 388- 4440). Thousands of questions from businesses have already been answered. * View the video: Returning to the PST - An Overview for Business. * View the new notices and bulletins on the application of PST and related exemptions. * Email questions to: CTBTaxQuestions@gov. bc.ca

Letters were mailed out to over 160,000 B.C. businesses in late September advising how to get information on the return to PST, and government has reached out to chambers of commerce and business associations to offer presentations with information businesses need for the transition. Provincial legislation/regulations: A new provincial sales tax notice, “General Transitional Rules for the Re-Implementation of the Provincial Sales Tax”, was issued in October. This notice provides general descriptions of transition rules for the re-implementation of the PST. The transitional rules describe how and when PST applies to transactions that straddle April 1, 2013, and should be read in conjunction with federal transitional rules for the elimination of the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) in B.C. The rules outlined in the notice are subject to the approval of the legislative assembly. The Ministry of Finance continues to work on developing the regulations, and transitional and consequential amendments to support the Provincial Sales Tax Act, which received royal assent on May 31, 2012. Government plans to publicly release a final proposed version of the Provincial Sales Tax Act with proposed amendments in late December. All amendments to legislation require the approval of the legislative assembly, expected in spring 2013. Business transition: More than 100,000 businesses will need to register to collect the PST, and about 30,000 of those are new businesses that have only existed under an HST tax system. They will need to learn to administer the PST in tandem with the GST, and adjust their accounting and administrative systems and prepare to collect a second sales tax, as of Apr. 1, 2013. More information on the return to PST and links to related publications can be found at www. PSTinBC.ca

The Princeton Accessibility Awareness Committee is pleased to announce the Second Annual Princeton Snow Angel Program. Snow removal is one of many winter weather challenges, and it can be especially impactful on our seniors and less physically able. The Snow Angel Program is designed to help acknowledge the voluntary efforts of people helping with snow removal. The Town of Princeton dictates that snow be removed from sidewalks adjacent to homes and businesses. The removal of snow from sidewalks improves accessibility and safety for everyone, especially our seniors and less able. Unfortunately, it is also our seniors and less able who often have the most physical, and sometimes financial, difficulty meeting the demands of the snow removal bylaw. Virtually every neighbourhood in Princeton has at least one per-

son who has difficulty clearing their sidewalk of snow. The Accessibility Committee is aware that many neighbours already voluntarily help each other with snow shovelling. We encourage everyone to work together to help keep our sidewalks free of snow and ice. The Snow Angel Program started with the first snowfall and will close, hopefully, before April. The Accessibility Committee is asking people who have had a volunteer help keep their sidewalk clear of snow and ice to send their stories to us. Nominated Snow Angels will be entered into a draw for a variety of prizes. Send your stories to: Snow Angels, c/o Box 1960 Princeton, BC V0X 1W0. Please remember that the exertion of shovelling snow can cause a variety of medical difficulties, including heart attack. Practice safe shovelling.

Residents can save sooner with energy upgrade loan

Home efficiency loans pilot program debuts in the South Okanagan KELOWNA, B.C. – December 6, 2012: Residents of the South Okanagan can now improve the comfort and energy efficiency of their home with help from a new, innovative loan program offered by FortisBC PowerSense. “Renovating for energy efficiency can make a home more comfortable and cost less to heat and operate,” said Tom Loski, vice president, customer service. “By helping customers defer the upfront costs, we’re making it easier for customers to get started with saving energy and utility costs.” The new Renovating for Efficiency Loan program provides loans of up to $10,000 for energy efficiency upgrades that reduce either electricity or natural gas use. The upgrades are made based on recommendations from a home energy assessment, and could include replacing an old furnace with a new energy efficient model, upgrading from baseboard heaters to a heat pump, adding insulation or replacing an inefficient hot water tank. The loan is available for both gas and electricity saving retrofits and is paid back over 10 years as a set amount on the participant’s electricity bill. Financing program participants can also access LiveSmart BC and FortisBC rebates, which will bring the cost of making energy efficiency renovations even more affordable. Payment may also be transferred to the new owner if the home is sold if both buyer and seller agree and the buyer qualifies.

The program, now in pilot phase, is currently available to South Okanagan homeowners who receive their electricity bills directly from FortisBC. Owners of rental homes may apply for financing if the owner pays the utility bill. This pilot allows FortisBC to test a new approach that aims to make upgrading a home’s energy efficiency easier and more accessible to a greater number of customers. Over the next 2 years, the provincial government will work with FortisBC to evaluate the program with the intent of offering energy efficiency financing to customers across the province on a permanent basis. “Many British Columbians want to reduce how much electricity they consume, but they can be discouraged by the initial cost of making energy efficiency upgrades. The PowerSense Renovating for Efficiency Loan Program allows homeowners to pay for upgrades over time, making greener living more affordable for families,” said Hon. Rich Coleman, Ministry of Energy and Mines. For more information and information about how to apply, visit fortisbc.com/efficiencyloan. For more information on energy efficiency tips, rebates and programs to help you save energy in your home or business, contact your local PowerSense representative by calling 1-866-436-7847, email powersense@fortisbc.com or visit www.fortisbc. com.

SpotlightOPINION An incredible gift Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

I have met many people in my life, especially during my tenure here at the Spotlight. Many have touched my life in different ways and many have gained a permanent place in my heart. Recently I had the great pleasure of meeting a gentleman in town whom I had not met before. His name is Mat Deutschmann. Mat is a 73 year old retired carpenter. For the past two years he has endured immense trauma to his body and brain following a fall off a roof that almost lead to his death. Doctors had told his wife Margarete, he would not survive. A year after the accident he suffered heart failure. I visited the Deutschmann home. Margarete (whom I had met before) explained Mats condition to me and showed me work he had done before the accident and then some of the work he has created over the last four months. It was amazing! I could see that Mat had always had a talent with wood, but the difference in the art style and detail was just incredible. From beautiful wooden boxes and carvings to life sized detailed replicas.... created from just looking at a photo! Margarete then took me to the workshop to meet Mat. He welcomed me with the biggest, warmest smile. When I asked if he would tell me about his work, he was thrilled to do so. Although he has some trouble with his speech and hearing, we had quite the conversations. During the hours I spent with Mat and Margarete that day, I received one of the greatest gifts ever. Not once did Mat complain or utter a negative word about what he had been through. In fact it was the exact opposite. This gentleman is so happy and content—it just amazed me! He is grateful, purely and simply for what he has, what he can accomplish and especially for his wife Margarete for taking such good care of him. This incredible couple proved something to me that I had heard many times, but didn’t really realize to be true. “That no matter how bad or dark things seem... There is always hope.” You’ve just got to have faith. See Mats story on page 8 of this edition.

Veterans funerals and burials issue still not addressed Royal Canadian Legion waiting for response from Federal Government

Canada’s Veterans deserve proper compensation and the financial support that recognizes the significant contribution they have made to the peace and stability of this country. What are they getting from the Federal Government? Inaction on several fronts; a program called “Cutting the Red Tape” that is plagued by dull scissors; no specifics on how or when proper funding will be reinstated to cover funeral and burial costs for the most needy of Veterans. In an open Letter to the Editor of 8 November 2012, The Royal Canadian Legion specifically asked the Government what it was waiting for in providing Veterans the ultimate show of respect they so richly deserve. It has been three weeks yet still there is no response from the Federal Government. The Legion first identified the importance of proper financial support for funerals and burials at its 2008 national Dominion Convention. Again in 2010 it was identified to government as a high priority issue. In 2012, The Royal Canadian Legion unanimously passed a resolution at Dominion Convention

and presented a statement to the Minister of Veterans Affairs calling on the Government to take any and all necessary action immediately to increase the Veterans Funeral and Burial Program services More recently, on 3 November the Legion hosted the annual Veterans Consultation Group meeting of 17 Veterans organizations. The Group unanimously agreed that the inaction to the long overdue improvements to funeral and burial benefits for Veterans and their families is appalling. Veterans’ organizations, the Office of the Veterans Ombudsman and the Parliamentary Subcommittee on Veterans Affairs unanimously agree that this needs to be fixed now. These Veterans and their families are the most vulnerable and deserve to be treated with respect and dignity. Public support around this issue grows every day and the Legion will continue to pursue it. Remembrance Day may be over but the care and concern for our Veterans never ends. Canadians have not forgotten our Veterans, and the Legion never will. To the Federal Government of Canada...we’re still waiting. What are you waiting for?

CHRISTMAS COMMUNITY SONGFEST Wednesday, December 12th at the Riverside Centre 7:00 pm - Everyone Welcome!

In an instant, something horrible can take place that changes ones life permanently. Whether the change results in a positive or negative direction—is dependant upon the choices one makes. Two years ago this week an accident happened that forever changed the lives of Mat and Margarete Deutschmann. On December 12, 2010, 71 year old Mat was working on the roof of their home in Princeton, when he slipped and fell to the ground. His injuries were extreme; he suffered numerous broken bones and extensive brain damage. Doctors told Margarete her husband would not survive. Against all odds however, Mat did survive his accident. He underwent surgeries and many months of physiotherapy to regain the use of his body. Due to the brain damage it was thought that Mat would never speak again. He has trouble hearing and some difficulty with his speech, but he is able to carry on a conversation quite well. About a year after the accident, Mat suffered a heart attack, further limiting his activity. Mat had spent his life as a carpenter up until his retirement. He did finishing work for Mike Grgich Contracting for a while when he and Margarete moved to Princeton to enjoy their retirement. Mat has always had a creative streak when working with wood. He showcased his talents making carvings, and unique boxes for his wife, family and friends. For approximately a year and a half after the accident, Mat did not know the name of his tools and machines or what they were even used for. About four months ago, he started spending time in his workshop again. “I don’t like to watch television,” Mat said, “I have all these machines and I need to keep living.” Margarete was quite amazed when she found out what her husband was doing in the workshop. “All of a sudden he just started making these guns,” she said. He had not made anything like this before. Mat took his first creation into Princeton Outdoors, the outdoor supply store on Bridge Street owned and operated by Ron and Loretta Young. The Youngs quite like Mat, “He’s good people,” they said. While showing off his first piece, Ron Young told Mat, “Have I ever got the book for you.” He gave Mat a magazine that showcases guns from the 1800’s.

Photo left: Mat Deutschmann shows how he gently shaves the wood smooth on one of the many replicas he has created. Photo above: three of the 1800’s style replicas made by Mat. Lisa Carleton/Spotlight

Mat took the magazine home and from the photos began creating life-sized replicas. He goes into his workshop, turns on the Christian music station from the East and listens to it all day while he works. He uses hardwoods like maple and walnut. No screws (with the exception of the guns that have silver plating on them) are used—he puts them together with glue and handmade wooden pegs. They are incredibly detailed, right down to the bullet cylinder that spins. Once complete, the guns are finished with his initials and shined up with olive oil. The replicas are not for sale—some have been given away as gifts and others decorate Mat and Margarete’s home. With all he’s been through, Mat is happy. He believes that everyone should be blessed, just like he is. He is especially captivated by his wife. As he speaks of her, he looks over at her with a huge smile and says, “She is a good girl. She takes good care of me.” Mat said he is not afraid of death at all—“You only live for so long here, and then you go on to something better,” he said. Mat’s story is one of an incredible journey of perseverance in the face of adversity. It is a story shared by a man who has many gifts, the most prominent of them being faith and hope.

Penticton Lakers sold to 100 Mile House Emanuel Sequeira Black Press

During a conference call Thursday night, members of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League voted 15-2 in favor of the sale and relocation of the Lakers to 100 Mile House. Andy Oakes, president of the Okanagan Hockey School which owns the Lakers, said he’s positive about the sale. “I think the community of 100 Mile House is a quality community for the KIJHL,” said Oakes. “I think it’s exciting for the league to be going into a new market.” Oakes, who dealt with 100 Mile House president Tom Bachynski and his group, said he feels they will be a solid franchise. As for selling the Lakers, Oakes said it is bittersweet. “We have enjoyed having the Lakers, but it was time to move on,” he said. “It is nice to see it going to community that’s excited to have junior hockey.” Bachynski said 100 Mile House hasn’t had a team in a junior B circuit since the Blazer club competed in the Cariboo Hockey League 30 years ago. There is a hunger in the community. Its midget rep team played their first home game two weekends ago attracted over 300 fans. Bachynski is part of a group that built the South Cariboo Recreation Centre nine years ago specifically to host a junior B team. “It’s been a long run for us,” he said. “Christmas has come early. It’s the best gift we could have ever asked for. It was a pretty emotional night last night. It’s great for our community.” Bachynski joked that he hopes Pentictonites won’t throw rocks at them and wishes the Lakers success the rest of the season and plans on making a few visits. Having grown up in Nelson and an alumni of

the Leafs, Bachynski said he knows what a team can mean to the social fabric of a community. “I look forward to seeing that fabric grow over the next few years of what the junior B team is going to bring,” he said. The team will be known as the Wranglers and Bachynski said the name seems like a good fit. “We wanted it to have an identity,” he said, adding that they have a Facebook page already. The last hurdle is approval from B.C. Hockey. Bachynski is confident that is just a “rubber stamp” considering how the voting went. Bill Ohlhausen, president of the KIJHL, said he’s hopeful B.C. Hockey approves it. It’s expected a decision should be made within a month. “I think they will be a good partner for the other teams,” said Ohlhausen. “They seem to have lots of enthusiasm. They have a pretty good group up there that are involved. I’m sure they will make it work.” By going into 100 Mile House, Ohlhausen said, this will bring variety to teams as far as a new venue. “I think it makes it very good for Chase and Kamloops and Sicamous and Revelstoke,” he said. “I think that’s a nice little division.” Should the approval go, the Wranglers would hit the ice for the 2013/14 season.

Like a Storm rolling through the valley, the South Okanagan Storm (Bantam Tier 3) hockey team keeps rolling through opponents. Last weekend they rolled into Winfield and won their twentieth game of the season. The 8-4 victory was high-lighted by a hat-trick from team captain Tristan Vandermeulen and another goal from assistant captain Parker Thibert. Michael White centered the third line and spent a lot of time killing penalties in the win. To date the Storm has won all three tournaments they have played. They have beaten teams from the interior, the mainland and the Kootenays. In winning 14 consecutive tournament games they have simply out-played every team they have faced. And, look no further than Princeton for three reasons why this team has been so successful. Vandermeulen, Thibert and White all live in Princeton, and commute weekly for practices and games. Tristan is the team’s captain, and the leading scorer. In his second season at the Bantam level, Vandermeulen leads by example

with his all-out effort, scoring and energy. Thibert is an assistant captain and another second year player. He spends a lot of time on the Power Play and Penalty Kill, and has a number of multiple point games this season White is in his first year in Bantam, and is spending his first season playing center. He has spent half the season on defense, and the balance at forward. It’s a lot of time, and a huge commitment. In spite of that, all three have managed to succeed at a high level, and maintain Honor Roll grades, or higher. Combined, the three have all A’s and nothing lower at Princeton High School this year. Add to that a full commitment to the PSS Rebels Basketball team, and you can only imagine these three have little to no spare time in their busy lives. Your chance to watch the Tristan, Parker and Michael, and the Storm is coming soon. They are set to play in the Princeton Bantam Tournament in mid-January. Come out and support your local boys. This will be the first “home tournament” for the three centers in a few years, and they are looking forward to performing in front of their friends and family.

We’re currently building a new, bigger Ronald McDonald House® BC next to BC Children’s Hospital. Once completed, the House will keep thousands more families together as their children receive treatment at the hospital. This House is our chance to surround more sick children with the love and support of their parents and siblings.

Sledders are to refrain from parking at the Britton Creek Rest Stop and must use the parking lot at 0.2km of the Tulameen FSR.

Tulam

This map was prepared so that the public and snowmobile club members, forestry company personnel and contractors, mining personnel etc can see where sledding is or is not allowed (subject to it being plowed or otherwise driveable) so that safe sledding and driving can happen this winter. This information may be subject to change at any time if resource roads are suddenly plowed due to resource extraction or otherwise.   A recent amendment to the Forest service Road use Regulation now allows designated crossings of Forest Service Roads for snowmobiles. 4 recently designated snowmobile crossings will all have signs up for the sledders for them to stop, assess whether it is safe to cross and then proceed directly across.  Signs for road travellers will also be up in the very near future indicating a snowmobile crossing is just ahead. For those road travellers who encounter snowmobiles driving directly on and up or down the  forest service roads please report this to the RCMP, CO Service or Compliance and Enforcement staff.

New Executive Director for the Okanagan Regional Library appointed After a nation-wide search, the Okanagan Regional Library (ORL) Board of Trustees is extremely pleased to announce the appointment of Ms. Stephanie Hall as the next Executive Director. The Board was very satisfied with the number of outstanding candidates who expressed interest in the position and is delighted with this outcome. Ms. Hall will succeed Ms. Lesley Dieno who, after 25 distinguished years at Photo submitted the helm of the ORL, Ms. Stephanie Hall will be the next Executive will be retiring at the Director of the Okanagan Regional Library. She end of Dec. 2012. The will assume her new role Feb. 1, 2013. Board would like to thank Ms. Dieno for her exemplary leadership of the ORL during a time of considerable growth and development. The search was spearheaded by the Board of Trustees Personnel Committee, led by Ms. Marilyn Harkness, who said, “Ms. Hall brings a wealth of experience, knowledge, and passion to the position and the Board looks forward to her endeavors on behalf of the ORL’s future.” The Chair of the Board of Trustees, Ms. Carol Zanon, stated, “Upon Ms. Dieno’s decision to retire, the Board initiated a nation-wide search for the next Executive Director, as the position involves the investment of both the financial and cultural interests of the many communities that make up the regional library system. The Board recognizes that the new Executive Director must bring many skills that are needed to address the challenges that libraries, staff and trustees face in the new age of internet literacy and changing technologies. The Board wishes Ms. Hall the very best as she assumes her new responsibilities.” Ms. Hall is currently the Director of Public Library Planning with the Province of Saskatchewan. She is a graduate of the Faculty of Information Studies at the University of Toronto and has 23 years of varied public library, academic library and special library experience. Prior to her current role, she was the Chief Librarian with Powell River Public Library, and then moved to Saskatchewan to become Director/CEO of the Chinook Regional Library. Ms. Hall stated, “I’m really looking forward to working with the Board and Staff of the Okanagan Regional Library. It’s a well-managed organization, and that makes it a great platform for launching new initiatives.  I’m interested to learn about what matters most to Okanagan communities about reading, lifelong learning, and libraries, and eager to start work on those priorities.  Public libraries help people learn and grow throughout their lives.  As we look to the future, I see some great opportunities to reenvision how we support that core role.” The Board is extremely pleased to have someone of Ms. Hall’s calibre as the next Executive Director. She will bring significant strengths to the position, including a passion for public library services and the positive changes libraries can make in people’s lives, and a well-developed understanding of the opportunities and challenges facing libraries. She is well poised to take over the leadership of the ORL during this pivotal time in the ORL’s evolution. Ms. Hall will assume her new role Feb 1, 2013.

Chocolate Coconut Meringues Yields: 30 cookies 4 large egg whites 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar 1/4 teaspoon coconut extract or imitation coconut extract 1/4 teaspoon almond extract 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/8 teaspoon salt 1 cup sugar 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 2 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips or finely chopped chocolate 2 tablespoons trans-fat-free white chocolate chips or finely chopped white chocolate, such as Sunspire 1. Position racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 250 F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper or nonstick baking mats. 2. Beat egg whites, cream of tartar, coconut, almond and vanilla extracts, and salt in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until combined. Gradually beat in sugar,

2 tablespoons at a time, beating until stiff, shiny peaks form, 6 to 8 minutes. 3. Sift cocoa over the mixture and gently fold together with a rubber spatula until combined. 4. Spoon the meringue into a gallon-size sealable bag (or pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch tip). Seal the bag, pressing out as much air as possible. Cut a 1/2-inch hole in one corner of the bag. Pipe the meringue into 2-inch circles, about 1 inch apart, on the prepared baking sheets. 5. Bake on the upper and lower

CAPRICORN: Capricorn, give an idea that would require some significant changes its due consideration. This can impact both your career and personal life in a positive way. AQUARIUS: It may seem like too much money is going out of your pocket and not enough coming in, Aquarius. But the budget will balance out this month. Rest easy when making purchases. PISCES: Start a creative project that can be turned into something you keep for yourself, Pisces. It’s nice to enjoy the fruits of your creative labors. ARIES: Aries, you will have to work hard at presenting a different image if you want to win over a few more fans. It might take a little time, but it is definitely within the realm of possibility. TAURUS: Taurus, take a break no matter how busy you are this week. It is for your own good to recharge with some R&R and then get back on track at work. GEMINI: Unexpected things can happen when you explore new possibilities, Gemini. Get out there and immerse yourself in other social circles so that you can take advantage of opportunities. CANCER: Cancer, run your ideas by a few people this week before you make a big presentation. This will help you to revise and tweak anything that needs a little work. LEO: Leo, you will be full of energy this week and that energy helps you handle whatever is put on your plate. Take advantage of your productivity with a few days off next week. VIRGO: Virgo, jump on an opportunity to take a vacation. There won’t be many other opportunities this year to enjoy a vacation. So go along even if it’s related to work. LIBRA: There are too many happy things going on in your life to let any of the negative things bring you down, Libra. Face challenges with a smile, and you’ll sail through. SCORPIO: Scorpio, despite firm convictions you cannot change others’viewpoints all of the time. Don’t be hard on yourself if other people do not see things the same way as you do. SAGITTARIUS: Sagittarius, sometimes you may believe there isn’t room for anyone else in the spotlight but you. Don’t let your ego get in the way of friendships. Share the glory. FOR ENTERTAINMENT ONLY

racks for 50 minutes. Turn off the heat and let the meringues stand in the oven with the door closed until completely dry, about 11/2 hours. 6. Melt semisweet and white chocolate (see Tips & Techniques) and drizzle or pipe onto the cooled meringues. Let stand until it sets. Tips & Techniques To melt chocolate, place chocolate in a bowl and microwave on medium for 45 seconds. Stir; continue microwaving on medium in 20-second intervals until almost melted, stirring after

each interval. Continue stirring until completely melted. Or place in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling, water. Stir until melted. To decorate cookies with melted chocolate, use a pastry bag fitted with a fine writing tip to pipe the melted chocolate or dip tines of a fork in chocolate and drizzle. You can improvise a pastry bag with a small plastic bag. Add melted chocolate to the bag, cut a tiny hole in one corner and squeeze the chocolate out.

In Memoriam

January 6, 1918 - December 12, 2007 “Death leaves a heartache that no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can stealâ€? Austin, my sweet, tender and wonderful man, it is 5 years since you left us, and the heartache is still present. However the memories are like echoes of your presence, Filled with your easy laughter, bright cheer and goodness. Your memory is very much alive as your spirit continues to bring love and joy into our hearts. You touched so many people in our community as the beloved bus driver, fireman and ambulance driver, your life was all about making a difference and giving of yourself. I was not prepared to let you go, but am comforted by the thought that angels surrounded you as you entered Heavens door and received your award. I know Heaven celebrates the lives of those who have lived meaningful lives for others as you did. There are so many times that I am over come with loneliness and grief, then I remember your love and joy, given so freely that enhanced and enriched our lives. I am so grateful for the gifts you gave me; knowing that your spirit is always with me, as you stand watching and waiting from behind the lattice. No one can take your place in our hearts and minds‌
