Proudly serving Cranbrook and area since 1951

Man mugged in broad daylight BARRY COULTER

A daylight attack for pocket change in Cranbrook has left a man bruised and sore, but otherwise all right. His attacker, however, is still at large. A man, who requested anonymity because the attacker is still at large, told the Townsman that his father-inlaw, 74, was walking to the grocery store down 4th Street North at about 5:15 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 29, and was near Joseph Creek behind Save-On when his assailant approached him. “He asked my father-in-law what his name was,” the man said. “When he answered, the guy started beating him up.” The man said the attacker knocked his father-in-law to the ground, continued punching and kicking him, then started going through his victim’s pockets. At that point a car stopped, the man said, and though the driver didn’t

get out, the father-in-law got the chance to flee. “He ran to the nearest house and knocked on the door,” the man said. “An elderly man answered, but didn’t let him in.” But the attacker had come in pursuit, and continued the beating right on the steps of the house. The resident called the police, who were there within two minutes, the man said, but by that time the attacker had fled. “It was a brutal attack,” the man said. “And he got maybe a couple of bucks.” His father-in-law has a black eye and is feeling sore, but he got a description of his attacker — about six feet tall, a male caucasian, around 35 years of age. He was unshaven, with dark hair and wearing a dark jacket. Anyone with information on this attack should call the RCMP at 250489-3471.


When Tia met Lisa

How Big Brothers Big Sisters changed the lives of educator Lisa Costain and Grade 7 student Tia Poirier in this first in a feature series on mentors SALLY MACDONALD Townsman Staff


A Wild Book was captured at Max’s Place in downtown Cranbrook on Monday, January 28. It was the launch of the Wild Books: Catch and Release, a free book exchange program swarming over the community to mark Family Literacy Week. Pictured, left to right: Max’s owner Lisa Barnes, Cranbrook chief librarian Ursula Brigl, Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy coordinator Katherine Hough, and Cranbrook Councillor Sharon Cross. See Page 3 for more.

Tia Poirier was facing hard times when she was first paired up with her Big Sister, Lisa Costain. The 12-year-old McKim Middle School student was being bullied at school almost every day. “I’ve been bullied since the first day of kindergarten,” Tia says. Late in 2011, Tia joined Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) as a Little Sister, after teachers at her school suggested she get involved. It was not long after Kimberley resident Lisa Costain signed on with the organization as a Big Sister. Lisa heard a speech by academic Dr. Martin Brokenleg in which he said the most important factor for a young person’s future is the influence of a supporting adult. “I thought: that’s so simple. I could do that,” says Lisa. The pair first met up in December 2011 at a Kimberley cafe, along with

BBBS executive director Dana Osiowy. “She went over what the expectations are, things like that,” says Lisa. “We made goals, like to meet other people, and do new things that we hadn’t done before,” adds Tia. Having someone new to talk to was an instant improvement for the Grade 7 student. “My life was really happier when I got my Big Sister. I got a new friend. I love hanging out with Lisa,” says Tia. Tia had long faced bullies at school, who would tease her and spread rumours about her. In Grade 3, Tia was physically attacked at least twice. Her mother, Nicole, spoke to the school about it, but it never helped for long, Tia remembers. “The school dealt with some of the kids, but they kept on doing it after they said they wouldn’t do it anymore.”

Catch and release books ‘in the wild’ Find a Wild Book around Cranbrook and it’s yours to read then pass on, in an initiative to promote literacy Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff


The Ladies Auxiliary to the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 24 has given the Friends of the Cranbrook Public Library funds to purchase a giraffe animal cushion for the Children’s Library. These cushions are a big hit with the younger children as they love to sprawl out on them during Story Time. Pictured left to right: Ursula Boy (Director of the Friends), Deanne Perreault (Children’s Librarian), Barbara Desjardin (President of the Ladies Auxiliary to the Legion).

There’s out there right now. Lurking in the shadows, prowling around when you aren’t looking. In fact, you could be sitting beside one right now and not even know it. We’re talking about Wild Books, of course, a new initiative that launched free books into public spaces in Cranbrook to be “caught”, read and enjoyed by anyone, then “released” once more into the community. On Monday, January 28, the Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy, in collaboration with the Cranbrook Public Library, released five free books at Max’s Place on 10th Avenue in downtown Cranbrook. Each book contains a bookmark and a sticker, ex-

plaining that they are part of the Wild Books initiative. “Keep your eyes peeled for the Wild Books label on a seemingly discarded book at a coffee shop, grocery store, park bench... you get the idea. If you find one, pick it up – it’s there for you! Then, take it home and read it. When you’re done reading, release the book back into the wild (anywhere you want),” said Katherine Hough, Cranbrook community literacy coordinator for Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy (CBAL). You can even release your own books into the wild if you want to share a favourite with the community. Wild Books labels and bookmarks can be picked up at the Cranbrook Public Li-

brary, which is partnering with CBAL to celebrate Family Literacy Day on January 27. “It doesn’t have to have a library bar code on it to be valuable to us,” said chief librarian Ursula Brigl. “We just want to see people reading.” There is even a blog where you can follow and add to the journey of Cranbrook’s Wild Books: visit www.cbal. org/wild-books. “Literacy builds self-confidence,” said Hough. “People who are literate are more involved in their communities, have better health and better team-building skills.” For more information, phone 250-4172896 or email

Grade 9 students at Laurie Middle School learn the history of Aboriginal people Submit ted by Mary Elliot t

As part of the Grade 9 Social Studies curriculum, Mrs. Julie Bradford, a Social Studies’ teacher at Laurie Middle School, has provided her students with an in-depth understanding of the history of Aboriginal people and their struggles. With the help of Joe Pierre (Enhancement Agreement Facilitator of School District 5) and Gordie Sebastian (Ktunaxa person and tour guide of the St. Eugene Mission, currently the St. Eugene Golf Resort and Casino), the students were given background knowledge about residential schools and the impact they’ve had on Aboriginal people and their families. Mr. Pierre presented the students with a powerful presentation on the nature and the purpose of residential schools and how the long-term impact of these schools affected many generations of the Aboriginal people. A documentary of the St. Eugene Mission called “Survivors

of the Red Brick School House” was shown to the students. This provided insightful discussion in class. This presentation was followed by a tour of the residential school on the St. Mary’s Reserve, once known as the St. Eugene Mission. Mr. Gordie Sebastian shared personal stories of his own experience as a young boy attending the school and the accounts of the other family members who attended. The original brick from the school forms the hallways of the hotel and memories of the students who attended are depicted on pictures hung on the wall of the building. The tour by Mr. Sebastian is an eye-opening experience for the students that will remain with them for years to come. Thank you to Mrs. Bradford for exposing students at Laurie Middle School to the history of the Aboriginal peoples who are an integral part of our society.

Speak up if you are bullied, student says Continued from page 1 Lisa knew that Tia was struggling at school. “When I asked how school was, she would say, people are bullying me. But I don’t think we had a lot of conversations too in-depth about it,” recalls Lisa. That all changed, ironically, on Pink Shirt Day last year – February 29, 2012, a national day of action against bullying. “I went to school that day but I forgot to wear pink, like we were supposed to. And I got bullied that day. I came home crying. My mom said: this has to stop,” tells Tia. She suggested to her mom that she make a video chronicling her experience. Together, they sat down and wrote Tia’s story on large white cards with permanent markers. Then, Tia sat in front of a video camera and held up card after card explaining how bullies have hurt her. As soon as the video was finished, Tia says she felt a weight lift off her shoulders. Her mother let the emotionally exhausted girl have the following day off school, and treated her to a session at a salon. Two days later, Tia went back to school and met with her teachers. Some of her bullies apologized in meetings with teachers; others did it privately. And this time, the lesson stuck. “Everything was better at school,” Tia remembers. “A lot of those people who bullied me are now my friends.”

The video was seen by thousands of people on Nicole Poirier’s Facebook page and on Youtube, with 6,000 views being registered in the first six hours. “My mum said there are videos out there and a lot of people have got bad comments about it. I knew there would still be good comments, so I would be fine,” says Tia, adding that only one or two comments were negative. While Tia is still attending the same school, she said her experience there feels different now, and there is less bullying in the school these days. “(The bullies) didn’t realize they were affecting some people, how it could make them feel. If it builds up on them too much, really bad things could happen,” says Tia. She urges other young adults who are being bullied at school to take action. “Stand up for yourself. Do something about it before things get worse. Tell a parent or do what I did,” she suggests. Having Lisa as a Big Sister at that difficult time made it easier for Tia to speak out, she says. “Big Brothers Big Sisters helped me be able to know, okay, I can connect with people about these things, me being bullied, and I can be understood, rather than people taking me the wrong way.” Lisa said she felt conflicted watching Tia’s video for the first time: she was proud of her bravery, but upset that Tia had been through so much. “I am really impressed with Tia’s courage and her ability to put herself out there, exposing herself in such a way that a lot of people wouldn’t have the courage to do. At the time, I felt sadness that Tia was experiencing that. It was so painful that she did have to go to that measure to get it out there,” says Lisa. Since then, Tia and Lisa have been meeting once a week, usually on

It’s good for both of us: we get to try a bunch of different things,” says Lisa. Lisa and Tia are opening up about their experiences to mark the 100th anniversary of Big Brothers Big Sisters in Canada. A year of celebrations is planned across the country, recognizing the role of mentors in everyone’s life. “One of the big things we are doing right now is encouraging the community conversation about mentoring, through what we are calling ‘The Big Shout Out’. This is a campaign where we will have community members,

stakeholders and celebrities giving a shout out to their mentors,” explains Osiowy. “We hope to achieve a significant relief to the number of kids we have on our waiting list. Talking about mentoring and the power of an hour a week in a child’s life is something we can’t wait to bring to more adults’ lives.” The local chapter started in 1977 and has grown to more than 100 partnerships between Bigs and Littles. Lisa and Tia are the first of several pairs whose experiences are inspiring, said Osiowy. “Tia and Lisa are a great example of mentoring because they know the power of fun. It is really important to be able to share their lives together – it gives Lisa a chance to be a kid again

and do more fun stuff and have a cool kid to do it with.” Dana says Tia’s courage in making the video was inspiring to see. “I felt so heartbroken that we have so many young people who feel marginalized, and yet I also felt like we were helping young people like Tia to have an important support network of adults who are not just parents,” explains Osiowy. “It is so amazing that we have Lisa involved who is someone that Tia can talk to about everything – I wish every child had a cool adult who isn’t their parent who they could rely on.” Stay tuned to the Townsman for more stories about powerful mentoring relationships to mark BBBS’ 100-year celebrations.

Skiers stranded for an hour after Fernie lift fails Angel a Treharne Fernie Free Press

It was the perfect day for powder hounds at Fernie Alpine Resort yesterday, but for a few guests who had to be evacuated from a broken down lift, it wasn’t all endless powder runs. The Great Bear Express lift, a high speed quad, experienced a mechanical failure

Sunday morning, when over half of the chairs had guests on them. After about half an hour, Fernie Alpine Resort staff began to unload the chairs using their unload evacuation plan, lowering guests one-by-one on a harness attached to a rope strung over the lift cable. After a few guests were

unloaded, mechanics were able to get the lift moving slowly so the rest of the guests could unload normally at the top. The lift was then closed for the rest of the day. Matt Mosteller, Vice President, Marketing and Sales at 
Resorts of the Canadian Rockies, said the maintenance team had been work-

NWT town loses power in -49C temps C ANADIAN PRESS

NORMAN WELLS, N.W.T. — A town in Northwest Territories has declared a state of emergency after its heating supply was cut. Imperial Oil (TSX:IMO) says a power outage early Monday morning at its facilities resulted in a controlled shutdown of its operations. The company supplies natural gas to Norman Wells for residential heating. Imperial spokesman Pius Rolheiser said partial natural gas service was restored later Monday. “The key thing from our perspective is partial service has been restored, people have heat in their homes and our priority now is to return our operations to normal and then to make sure we conduct an investigation to fully understand what led to that power outage,’’ Rol-

heiser said from Calgary. The MLA for the area, Norman Yakeleya, says it was -49C with the windchill on Monday and 850 residents — about 85 per cent of the townspeople — depend on natural gas to heat their homes. Others use diesel or wood stoves, he added. He says the town’s school was not affected and was being used as a centre for residents to go to if their heat was not on. But the town’s health centre didn’t have heat, and patients had to be moved, Yakeleya said. He said the townspeople worked together to help those without heat. “There were groups of people going house to house draining water lines in people’s homes so they don’t freeze up, so the house doesn’t get further damage from not having heat.’’

ing to try to prevent a break down. “There was a failure on a friction plate which is kind of a manufacturer’s defect on these type of detachable lifts,” he said. “One of the chairs got off the line so it wouldn’t go around the bull wheel. So we had to stop the lift and fix it.”

Community living workers in Cranbrook will strike on Friday, February 1, following the lead of disability workers throughout the province. About 3,400 workers who help adults and children with disabilities will stage a one-day strike across B.C. Wednesday to press demands for higher wages. Patsy Harmston of the B.C. Government and Service Employees Union says starting wages are $15 an hour, a dollar less than 10 years ago, resulting in many of the workers having trouble making ends meet. The union also says more than 40 per cent of the workers have been

forced to cut services to their clients because of budget cuts. The 24-hour job action will affect the Richmond-based Developmental Disabilities Association and the Burnaby-based PosAbilities, the two largest community social service agencies in B.C. Agencies in Vancouver, Victoria, Prince George, Chilliwack, Coquitlam, Kamloops, Vanderhoof, Trail, Salmon Arm, Castlegar, Creston and Cranbrook will also be picketed. The union says it wants to send a clear message to the B.C. government to stop putting the squeeze on programs and staff that help people with disabilities. With files from Canadian Press

The B.C. government’s decision to abandon efforts to recover $6 million in legal fees for the pair sparked a political battle. Two deputy ministers said they made the decision to overrule the policy to recover legal defence fees from government employees if they are found guilty. They concluded it would have added more to legal costs than their assets were worth. Bauman states in his ruling that current B.C. legislation does not give the Auditor General access to privileged materials such as lawyer bills, and his assurance that they would not be widely shared makes no difference. Bauman also found that the government’s voluntary disclosure of privileged cabinet documents in the case is not relevant to the confidentiality of lawyer bills.

Aerobics versus esthetics “People who survive grow older with each year they live.” — Anonymous.


n the Weather Channel recently a half-witted reporter was interviewing half-witted folk exercising their dogs and bodies on the seawall in Vancouver. It was barely daylight and there was a veil of fog over the sea, and these dim-wits seemed to be determined to exhaust themselves in the even dimmer light of a Wet Coast dawn. The reporter started chatting to what looked like a genetically modified stick-insect tied with a leash to what was probably a genetically modified dog when I turned off the TV. You see, I too have the ability to rise very early in order to be very strenuous but only if spectacular views are expected to be readily available. I have never enjoyed sweating in a gym nor have I relished aerobics without the accompanying esthetics. I do dimly recall volunteering to take a friend’s poodle out for a stroll in Calgary but I didn’t enjoy the moment. There were cloud banks over the distant Rockies and all I could see was buildings and a dreary city sky. I wasn’t amused; I don’t know how the dog felt. But some people are stoic. Regularly and dutifully, they go out, dog or no dog, for a walk or run and hope to get some exercise doing so. To me, that is almost soulless. It’s akin

Story of fatal bus crash of WHL Swift Current team to be made into movie REGINA - A book about the tragic 1986 bus crash that killed four members of the WHL Swift Current Broncos is going to be made into a movie. Tri-Light Entertainment has secured the rights to produce a feature film adaptation of the book “Sudden Death: The Incredible Saga of the 1986 Swift Current Broncos.” Saskatchewan writer-director Rob King (“Corner Gas,” “Hungry Hills”) will adapt the book for the screen. The junior hockey team was on its way to Regina for a game against the Pats on Dec. 30, 1986 when the team bus slid off an overpass on the Trans-Canada Highway just outside of Swift Current, Sask., and flipped over. Trent Kresse, 20, Scott Kruger, 19, Chris Mantyka, 19, and Brent Ruff, 16, were killed. Other players suffered serious injuries. Canadian Press

Nitros beat Thunder Cats 5-4 in double-OT TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Kimberley Dynamiters have proved over the last four games that they’re not afraid to go the extra mile—or period, for that matter. The Nitros won a tense 5-4 double overtime decision over the visiting Creston Valley Thunder Cats on Tuesday night at the Civic Centre, winning their fourth consecutive matchup in the extra frame. Sam Nigg was the overtime hero, beating T-Cats netminder Zach Straza with a slap shot while streaking down the sideboards after entering the offensive zone with 1:12 to go in the double-OT period. “I went down 20 seconds earlier and just missed, so I figured I’d give it the same shot and it worked out for me,” said Nigg. After all, the team has had lots of practice going into overtime. “It’s getting a little tiring, but it’s fun,” added Nigg. “Winning in overtime is the best feeling there is.” The Nitros enjoyed a brief lead after the first period, but the two teams ended the middle frame tied at 3-3. The two teams traded goals in the final period, which sent the game into extra time. Matthew Mitchell backstopped his team to the win, making 39 saves, while Straza turned away 32 shots for Creston. Creston scored on two of their six powerplay opportunities,

while shutting down the Nitros in all five of their chances. The Dynamiters took the lead late in the second period, when Tyson Klingspohn got a lucky deflection off a skate during a scramble in front of Straza. Creston tied up the game in the second period, scoring their first powerplay goal when Andrew Hodder put a slap shot from the blue line past Mitchell. Trevor Hanna put the T-Cats in the lead 24 seconds later, taking a breakaway feed from Jesse Collins and beating Mitchell through the five-hole. Kimberley responded with a breakaway of their own, as Taylor McDowell slid the puck between the legs of Straza. Dylan Sibbald gave his team a two-goal lead, drifting into the slot and ripping a feed from Nigg. However, Angus Johnston tied up the game a minute later on the powerplay, finishing outside the crease on a give-and-go play with Connor Kidd. The Thunder Cats pulled ahead in the final period on a goal from Marcel Fuchs, but Eric Buckley responded 10 minutes later, walking out of the corner and roofing the puck on the far side of the net. The Nitros owned most of the play in the first overtime frame, and Nigg nearly finished it when he nailed the post. However, Creston looked dangerous on the powerplay when Isaac Schacher took a

Kimberley has pretty much locked up at least third place in the Eddie Mountain Division, with

four games to go until the KIJHL playoffs. The T-Cats and the Rockies are duking it out for the final divisional playoff spot, but either team don’t have the enough games left to

catch the Nitros if they keep winning. Conversely, the Dynamiters have a small chance of catching up to the Golden Rockets, but that would require a few losses on Golden’s part.

Nitros have new assistant coach on the bench TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

A familiar face is back on the Kimberley Dynamiters bench, as Mike Reid has stepped into the vacant assistant coaching position to help out bench boss Glenn Burgess. Reid has been there before, helping out former Nitro coaches Wayne Keiver and Kevin MacKay during their coaching tenures. “Glenn contacted me and asked if I would be interested in coming on board,” said Reid. “I’ve been here in the

past and helped out and I thought moving forward, we’ve got a lot of talent on the team and just need a little bit of guidance and Glenn needed some support.” “The main reason I came on board was to give Glenn the support he deserves and move this organization in the direction it deserves to go.” Reid, a Kimberley resident, originally hails from Ontario, where he grew up playing minor hockey and enjoyed a year of college hockey, where he

went on to finish a sports business degree. He worked in a business capacity for a few OHL teams and coached AAA-level hockey for five years while living in Ontario. He has also donned the stripes and reffed the game for 30 years, including games in the KIJHL. “As a hockey lifer, you get the chance to coach at this level—it’s been exciting and the kids are great here, we got a good group of kids and its fun to be involved,” said Reid.

Federer ‘not finished’ with Davis Cup, says Swiss captain GR AHAM DUNBAR Associated Press

GENEVA - Roger Federer might play in the Davis Cup again although he won’t represent Switzerland before the U.S. Open in September, team captain Severin Luethi said Tuesday. Luethi told The Associated Press that the 17time Grand Slam champion has not written off a competition that Switzerland has never won. “He is for sure not

finished with Davis Cup,” Luethi said ahead of a first round series at home this week against defending champion Czech Republic which Federer is skipping. Still, by not making his Davis Cup plans clear in recent months, the 31-year-old Swiss star has been the target of rare criticism at home. Federer opted last October to schedule more rest periods and time with his family this

season, said Luethi, who is part of the player’s entourage on tour. “He could really plan until, let’s say, the U.S. Open more or less,” the Swiss captain said. “For him, it’s sure that he doesn’t play the first two ties.” Switzerland can earn another home series in the quarterfinals in April, against Austria or Kazakhstan, by beating the Czechs on indoor hard courts in Geneva. The semifinals and rele-

gation playoffs follow the season’s final Grand Slam at Flushing Meadows. Federer “didn’t take a final decision to say, ‘I’m not ever playing Davis Cup again.’ He just decided for the first half of the year now that he is not playing, then we have to see what he is going to decide,” Luethi said. Federer’s two-week break comes after losing a lengthy five-setter to Andy Murray in the Aus-

tralian Open semifinals last Friday. “There was maybe a small chance if he had lost in the first or second round or something,” that the second-ranked Swiss would reconsider, Luethi said earlier at a news conference. “But otherwise it was not even a discussion anymore in Australia.” Federer is next scheduled to play in the Netherlands, at the Rotterdam indoor event starting Feb. 11.

CELEBRATING SUCCESS: Cranbrook native and retired NHLer Scott Niedermayer was honoured by the Kamloops Blazers last Friday night, as his former major-junior team retired his jersey in a pre-game ceremony. Niedermayer won a Memorial Cup with the Blazers in 1992 before going pro in the NHL, where he played 18 seasons and won four Stanley Cups. Niedermayer’s wife, Lisa, and four sons—Logan, Jackson, Joshua and Luke—took part in the ceremony as the Blazers celebrated the defenceman’s contributions to the franchise.

Ice head into oil country for mid-week road trip Tre vor Cr awley Sports Editor

Though playing hooky often gets people in trouble, there won’t be any consequences for absenteeism when the Edmonton Oil Kings host the Kootenay Ice for their second annual Hockey Hooky game on Wednesday morning. The game is similar to Kootenay’s School Spirit Night, as thousands of Edmonton school kids descend on Rexall Place for the 11:30 a.m. puck drop. On the topic of

avoiding consequences, the Oil Kings dodged any punishment to their roster for Wednesday’s game, but will have to fork out some cash following a line brawl during a game against the Lethbridge Hurricanes on Sunday. The WHL handed down a $500 fine for a multiple fight situation and an additional $250 for a goaltender bout between Laurent Brossoit and Ty Rimmer. Lethbridge didn’t escape the discipline either, with a $750 fine for their second multi-

ple fight incident of the season, a $250 fine for the goalie fight, while head coach and general manager Rich Preston got slapped with $500. ON THE RECORD It’s an interesting juxtaposition when you look at the season series record between the two teams. Kootenay currently leads with three wins in five meetings against the Oil Kings, the defending WHL champions and a team that has stayed close to the top of the Eastern Conference rankings.

It should make for an interesting game as the Ice are back into playoff contention and have strung together an impressive amount of wins in the new year, which has helped turn their fortunes around. The Oil Kings aren’t slouching either, with victories in their last five outings—three at home and two on the road.

DEKES AND STREAKS Though the line brawl and goalie fight turned some heads between the Oil Kings and the Hurricanes, it’s important to look at other parts of the scoresheet. Henrik Samuelsson, an offensive stalwart and Phoenix Coyotes prospect, had a fourpoint night with a goal and three assists. Dylan Wruck an overage forward also recorded the same number of points. Samuelsson is on a five-game point streak, while Michael St. Croix has points in his last six

games. However, the Ice also have some streakers, such as Sam Reinhart, with points in his last 13 games, while Jaedon Descheneau had his 12-game streak end in Regina on Saturday. Luke Philp is also starting a run of his own, with a goal and two assists over his last three appearances. After Wednesday’s morning affair, the Ice head south to Red Deer, where they will face off against the Rebels on Thursday night.

Do not let this thought dominate. Abolish it. Tonight: Share some news with a family member.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) You could be surprised at everything that is occurring in your daily life. Your creativity and desire to move forth emerge. You have a lot going on that you have yet to acknowledge. You might want to keep less to yourself and start sharing. Tonight: Catch up on a friend’s news. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You have an unusual possessive streak that comes out. Though you often are insightful, you might not understand or see the damage that this behavior could bring. Attempt to hold back, and try not to get caught up in acting on a feeling. Tonight: Pay bills, then decide. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Your energy attracts many people, and you’ll be acknowledged for everything you do. You could feel rewarded for many hours of hard work. Accept an offer that sounds too good to be true. Communicate the extent of your feelings to a loved one. Tonight: Do what you want! LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You sense that you are on the

For Better or Worse

verge of a new beginning. You don’t have full knowledge of this opportunity yet, but you soon will. Take today to catch up on errands, but use caution when spending. Try not to invest any funds, especially in real estate. Tonight: Nap, then decide. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Zero in on priorities. A meeting or a get-together with friends might be more important than you think. You are on the verge of getting an offer or benefiting financially from a different source. Play bingo or buy a lottery ticket. Tonight: Call it an early night. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) A loved one starts revealing much more of his or her inner thoughts. Enjoy this process, yet know that it could go on for several months. You might want to handle a career matter or a situation involving an older friend or relative sooner rather than later. Tonight: In the limelight. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You might have had plans to take off and do some research, but good news could have you rethinking your plans. An oppor-

tunity presents itself that might be too good to be true. A somewhat stoic friend plays a large role in decision-making. Tonight: Take in a movie. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Deal with a close associate in a more direct manner. You also can express more of your unconventional thoughts at this point in time. Use discretion with someone you meet today. This person might not be everything that he or she projects to be. Tonight: Chat over dinner. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You can’t help but share good news that is forthcoming. A partner or dear friend could be just as excited as you are. A family matter could involve expansion or the purchase of a new home. Real estate remains fairly solid as an investment. Tonight: Order in. BORN TODAY Former U.S. vice president Dick Cheney (1941), singer/songwriter Phil Collins (1951), chess grandmaster Boris Spassky (1937) ***

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I’ve been with a wonderful guy for five years. After two abusive marriages, I am finally being treated right. “Bud” and I have only two issues: money and kids. We have broken up a few times over our problems, but honestly, I can’t live without him. Bud is 44 years old and owns his own business, but he does not save money. When I met him, he had nothing. Now he has $20,000 in a retirement account and another $5,000 in savings. He finally has his two kids pretty well straightened out, although they will never be exactly normal. Bud still doesn’t manage his money well. He needs so many things in his house, yet he went out and bought a truck he doesn’t need. He now has six years of payments on it, his auto insurance went up, and if he ever needs new tires, we are talking thousands of dollars. I want him to sell it and get a reasonably priced truck. He says he will lose money on the sale, which is true, but why sink even more into it? Both of my marriages involved men who overspent on themselves, so I know I have a tendency to be extra cautious. How can I convince Bud that he did the wrong thing by buying the truck, but that he still has time to fix it? I won’t marry a man I can’t trust with my money. Not again. -- Thrice Shy Dear Thrice: You can’t treat Bud like a child, even if he makes poor financial decisions. He will resent it and push back. Instead, approach all such matters jointly, being respectful of each other’s opinions, even when you disagree. You also could offer to take over the handling of finances for the household, keeping everyone within a reasonable budget. But you are wise not to commingle your money if you don’t trust Bud’s ability to handle it. Before marrying, consider financial counseling together through your bank or the National Foundation for Credit Counseling ( Dear Annie: My husband and I have been married 27 years. We each have grown children from previous marriages. My husband’s 42-year-old unmarried son lives out of state. “Mike” is self-supporting, but the only time we hear from him is when he needs some extra money. He lives alone except for his dogs. For the past three years, Mike has spent Christmas with us, staying three or four days. We are always happy to see him, even though we only have two bedrooms and he brings the dogs -- even one who is incontinent. Last year, my daughter (who also lives out of state) visited with her two children. We hadn’t seen her in two years. My husband also was scheduled for knee replacement surgery the following week. So when Mike asked to come with his dogs and a new puppy, we explained that it wasn’t a good time. We asked him to come in February or March, while his father recuperated -- and hopefully, the puppy would be housebroken. We have not heard from him since, even though I have left numerous messages on his voicemail. What more can I do to mend this fragile relationship? -- In the Middle Dear Middle: Not much. You have explained, and you have called. We trust you will keep all of the kids informed of Dad’s progress, including Mike. But it is up to him to make the next move. We suspect when he needs money, he will get in touch again. Dear Annie: Most women who responded to “Your Husband” do not understand men very well. Without sex, men feel incomplete. It’s part of how we feel loved. Women should realize how important sex is to a man simply by seeing that he is willing to risk everything -- his wife, family and assets -- to fill this void. -- Feeling the Void in Indiana Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

8. Advertise Because There is Always Business to Generate. Salespeople are on the payroll. As long as youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in business, you have overhead and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to advertise to generate a steady cash flow.
