Kimberley wants to try hazing experiment City seeks 48 hours for a professional test on urban deer C AROLYN GR ANT Daily Bulletin

Kimberley City Council voted Monday evening to apply for a 48hour experimental hazing permit. Coun. Darryl Oakley asked Council to approve the application at their regular meeting this week, calling it a baby step in a long process. “This is one piece in our management plan,” Oakley said. “We wanted to get to the place where we can do a


short trial hazing.” Oakley says the Urban Deer Committee has been burning the midnight oil this winter and that has included a visit from a professional hazer, who has worked in Banff, Jasper and Waterton. “This is a professional person who does this, it’s very controlled,” Oakley said.

The identity of a man who died in an avalanche near Kimberley on March 23 has been confirmed and released. The BC Coroners Service reported on Tuesday that Joel Conway, aged 38, of Kimberley, was one of a group of seven snowmobilers who had travelled to the area of Hellroaring Creek southwest of Kimberley, on a memorial run for another Kimberley resident who died in an avalanche in the same area four years earlier. While the group was in the area, a large avalanche struck, burying two of the men. One man managed to dig himself out, but Conway was buried too deeply for self-rescue, or for the other members of the party to be able to rescue him. They sought help, and a major search- and-rescue effort was launched. Conway’s body was recovered from the area on March 24. The Canadian Avalanche Centre continues to list the avalanche risk as “considerable” to “high” in many parts of the province and urges all backcountry users to take extreme care, including checking the Canadian Avalanche Centre website for current conditions in B.C.

CHCA pledges $613,333 to EKRH Courtesy Roger Brown

This year the Cranbrook Health Care Auxiliary is 112 years old. It was formed in 1901, when the Sisters of Providence Charity operated the St. Eugene Hospital. Over these many years the objective has remained the same — to assist those in need of health care through service and fundraising. The Auxiliary continues to be proactive, re-

flecting the changing times, by adding new services to better facilitate patient care and comfort. Volunteers at the hospital provide patient care and comfort by guiding visitors and patients to appointments within the hospital, providing special assistance in the Oncology Unit, in Ambulatory Care, Maternity and during weekend ultrasound, and in general, assisting

those in need of help. Many Auxiliary members also work at our CHCA Thrift Store located at 30 - 8th Avenue South. This is a major fundraiser, providing over $300,000 a year, supporting equipment purchases for the EKRH. The CHCA is a busy and productive group. During the last five years the 260-plus members have pledged almost $2,000,000. The 2013 pledge alone amounts

to over $613.000.00 not including two high school scholarships of $3,000 each. At the recent AGM of the CHCA, members passed a motion to purchase equipment for the following departments: 1. Biomedical: Incubator Analyzer — pledge, $14,280. 2. Obstetrics: Infant Scale with warmer and two Fetal Heart monitors — total pledge, $89,706.

3. Laboratory: CO2 and O2 Incubators and Hematology microscope — total pledge, $38,337. 4. Emergency: Defibrillator (X2) and Cooling Blanket, total pledge, $67,395. 5. Dialysis: Renal Ultrasound — pledge, $52,485. 6. Medical Records: Mobile shelving and storage — pledge, $30,847.00 7. Diagnostic Imag-

ing: Wireless Digital Radiography Cassette and Ultrasound Probes — total pledge, $124,000. 8. And other assorted pieces of equipment totaling, $196,283.

The CHCA continues to be an active and hard working group, collectively contributing both money and time to health care in Cranbrook.

One hour on Earth Continued from page 1

This year, BC Hydro was unable to measure how much electricity use decreased during Earth Hour in Cranbrook and Kimberley. However, Kevin Aquino, a spokesperson for BC Hydro, said homeowners can now look up their personal electricty use for that hour online at www. “Currently, 1.1 million of our customers have access to their usage information online that can be broken down by the hour. Customers can log on to check to see if they have access to this data and compare their Earth Hour usage to their electricity use the previous

Saturday. This will give them a better idea of whether or not their actions made a difference in reducing their consumption,” said Aquino. Meanwhile, across B.C., 136 megawatt hours of electricity were saved during Earth Hour on Saturday, which reduced the provincial electricity load by 1.95 per cent - the equivalent of turning off more than 10 million 12.5-watt LED light bulbs. The total provincial energy savings from Earth Hour participation since 2008 is 500.27 megawatt hours of electricity — the equivalent of turning off 40 million 12.5-watt LED light bulbs.

Cranbrook’s Jeff Bleaney’s huge fundraising efforts came through again this year for the recent Heart and Stroke Curlathon. Bleaney, who is the top fundraiser for the annual event, beat his own record this year by raising $2,208 for the Heart & Stroke Foundation of B.C. & Yukon. He is pictured above receiving the Walter Waters Memorial Trophy for top fundraiser from Misty Ahlefeld, both still sporting their “Tacky Tourist” garb, according to the theme of this year’s event. Bleaney’s name has been on the trophy for the past 10 years, as the person raising the most pledges. There is no doubt that he is an integral part of the success of the Heart & Stroke Curlathon every year.

City of Cranbrook pleased with federal budget Submit ted

Last Thursday’s budget is an important step forward for the City of Cranbrook, the City stated in a press release issued Tuesday. The release stated that of particular significance is the government’s decision to index the gas tax transfer at two per cent annually beginning in 2014–2015. “This measure alone — the

first indexing of a municipal transfer — will ensure the fund keeps pace with inflation and will add another $9 billion to the permanent gas tax fund over 20 years.” “By protecting the purchasing power of the gas tax transfer, and by extending program funding for 10 years, this budget entrenches the principle of long-term sustainable infrastructure funding for Cran-

brook,” said Mayor Wayne Stetski. Another significant change to the Gas Tax Fund is that the scope of eligible projects will be broadened. Eligible projects will now include: highways, local and regional airports, broadband and connectivity, brownfield redevelopment, culture, tourism, sport and recreation. “The direction from the

Federal Budget lays the foundation for continued intergovernmental collaboration as economic conditions improve to meet the challenges that need to be addressed in Cranbrook,” said Chief Administrative Officer Wayne Staudt. “Whether it is wastewater upgrades, roads or other infrastructure replacements, we all need to work together to meet our residents’ needs.”

“He toured around town and then gave a presentation to Council,” Oakley said. “His conclusion was that it was worth applying for a hazing permit.” Hazing is not currently legal in British Columbia, though it has long been practiced in the National Parks.

“The Ministry may well say it’s illegal and deny us,” Oakley said. “We’re hoping to convince them that this is one piece of our management plan. It’s a trial, under the law it would be an experimental trial certificate. Hopefully they will allow us to try.”

Local conservationist awarded medal Cranbrook resident Carmen Purdy recognized with Diamond Jubilee Medal for habitat conservation work Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

Local conservationist Carmen Purdy receives a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal from Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett on Tuesday, March 26, while his proud grandsons Cam Purdy, Angus Hamilton and Lucas Purdy, and wife Carol look on.

Local conservationist Carmen Purdy was recognized with a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal on Tuesday, March 27. Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett presented the award to Purdy for his decades of work on wildlife habitat conservation. “I can’t think of anybody I have met in the past 20 years who has made more of an impact on wildlife conservation,” said MLA Bennett. “Carmen has been a real source of guidance and information for me over the past 12 years.” Purdy received the medal for his work as a director of the Nature Trust of B.C. for 20 years and his role in founding B.C.’s Habitat Conservation Trust. The trust places a

surcharge on hunting, fishing, trapping and guiding licenses to go to conservation projects. In his role with the Nature Trust, Purdy had a hand in creating various land conservancies in the Kootenays. “If you manage lands properly, you can multiply resources,” said Purdy. “Carmen shows you can be a friend to wildlife and a friend of nature without being opposed to mining, resort development and forestry,” said Bennett. Purdy was also a founder of the Kootenay Wildlife Heritage Fund, and promotes backcountry access for all. “The whole community needs access to the backcountry,” said Purdy. “That doesn’t mean you abuse the backcountry with access – but you use it.”

Tick season takes off

The early warmth will bring out those pesky creepy crawlies; be careful in the great outdoors this weekend S a l ly M ac D o n a l d Townsman Staff

The Easter long weekend is approaching and forecasts call for four days of sun, with highs ranging from 12 to 14 degrees Celsius. As we all get outside to enjoy the spring, so does the warm weather bring out another type of critter: ticks. The small bugs, which feed on the blood of humans, can also transmit disease. You may find them in tall grass and forests. Here in the East Kootenay, the most common type of tick is the Wood Tick, which does not carry Lyme disease. However, wood ticks can carry Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Ticks also have toxins that can result in temporary muscle weakness and paralysis if they are removed from the skin for several days. Ticks can also cause fever, headache, muscle pain and rash. Once the tick is removed, the

Wood ticks are waking. symptoms will go away, but seniors and chilren are particularly vulnerable. “Lyme disease-carrying ticks are less common in the Interior of B.C. than on the coast; however, our residents do travel around the province, so it’s important they are aware of the signs of Lyme disease,” said Dr. Karin Goodison, a public health physician with Interior Health. “A p p r o x i m a t e l y 70-80 per cent of people newly infected with Lyme disease will develop a skin rash that looks like a ‘bulls eye’ target and often expands from the site of the tick bite. The rash may be accompanied by fever, headache, and

aches or pains in muscles and joints. Individuals who experience this rash should see a doctor as soon as possible.” There are several things you can do to protect yourself from tick-caused illnesses, Dr. Goodison went on. “Covering up before you head outdoors and checking for ticks when returning from a walk, hike, or bike ride are simple things that go a long way to prevent tick bites,” said Dr. Goodison. “Most tick bites do not cause illness; however, any bite from a tick or other insect should be cleaned with soap and water because infection can occur whenever there is a break in the skin.” It’s important to check your own skin and your children and pets after being in forests or tall grass, according to Interior Health.

Local NEWS Peter Duryea 1939-2013

From Star Trek to Gray Creek Greg Nesteroff Nelson Star

It’s a measure of Peter Duryea’s worth that appearing in one of the most popular shows in television history wasn’t his most noteworthy accomplishment. To most of the world, Duryea was best known for a bit role in the pilot episode of the original Star Trek series. But on Kootenay Lake, he was a revered East Shore elder and environmentalist who fought against clearcut logging and started a now-thriving nature retreat. Duryea, who was also a writer, director, documentary filmmaker, boat guide, and naturalist, died at home Sunday at 73 after a long illness. “He was a visionary  —  one of the most amazing I’ve ever met,” says Susan Hulland, who like Duryea came to the area in the 1970s. “He always insisted on figuring out a good way to do things. I can remember hearing from him over and over again: ‘Is there a better way?’ He was always looking for win-win scenarios, even during down and dirty environmental squabbles.” One of those disputes led to the creation of the non-profit  Guiding Hands Recreation Society  and tipi camp. In a memoir published last July in the  East Shore Mainstreet, Duryea recalled that in the mid-1980s the community was struggling against clearcut logging. They established the Stop Clearcut campaign, famous for its ubiquitous green stop signs. News that 22 clearcuts were planned for the Pilot Peninsula set off “a wave of resistance” along the East Shore, Duryea wrote. “The idea grew that maybe we could show that using the land for conservation and educational purposes could lead to a sustainable industry of outdoor recreation.” In 1988, Alice Bruce offered her land at Cortiannas Bay, where a tipi camp was established as a retreat to inspire young and old. It took eight years before the camp could afford to hire five seasonal work-

Ottawa takes lead on training


he B.C. election campaign that’s about to get underway will feature lots of talk about skills training. It will be everyone’s top priority, along with a dozen other top priorities. But since elections are no time to deal with serious issues, don’t expect much frank discussion about ways to redirect our increasingly soft, urban society toward useful work. Somebody might be offended. The B.C. Liberals see lots of skilled, technical jobs on the horizon, but they cut their skills training budget and many of their MLAs are also looking at a career change. The B.C. school system, like that of other provinces, still pushes kids to university programs that lead to coffee-serving jobs and the need for another round of training. This has been going on since the 1970s, and it’s not confined to B.C. The B.C. NDP apparently expects to coast to victory with the same empty rhetoric about “income inequality” and student debt that they’ve been using for years. Their only discernible intent is to return control over how many apprentices can be on a job site to industrial unions, which severely restrict it, squeezing out small business. This team’s ideas are mostly left over from the last industrial

revolution. Fortunately there is a mid-term federal government that has acted. Last week’s federal budget launches new programs that the next B.C. government will have to go along with. Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government didn’t claw back post-secondary funds from B.C. and other inept provinces, as some had feared. What we got from Ottawa was social engineering, Conservative style. BC VIEWS The centrepiece  is the “Canada Job Grant,” a Tom $5,000 grant to employers Fletcher willing to match it and train an unemployed person. To qualify, the province has to match as well, for a total $15,000 commitment to one worker who will have a job to go to. Delta-Richmond East MP Kerry-Lynne Findlay was one of the Conservatives out to promote the budget. She said when the Canada Job Grant is fully rolled out, it will fund training for 130,000 people a year. Some will be young people, but there will also be older workers whose skills need upgrading. “If they’re willing to look at the jobs that are available and understand that that’s their best shot at making a living and being able to support their own families some day, we want to be sure that the opportunities are there,” Findlay said. The difference is that it has to be what

an employer needs, not what the student might prefer. It’s a public-private partnership, as we have seen with modern public works. Findlay acknowledged that even with a big push on training, Canada will still need to import foreign workers. In B.C. we are bracing for an unprecedented resource boom, much of it in the B.C. Interior and north. That’s one reason for a $241 million increase over five years to the federal Income Assistance Program for aboriginal reserves. The new money is available only if the community leadership commits to a mandatory training component. Of course, no worker or province or band council is required to participate. They have the option to leave the federal money on the table. But the NDP should note that the Canada Job Grant applies to union-run apprenticeship schools as well as those in community colleges and technical institutes. Saying no isn’t much of a choice.

Oil Kings hammer Ice, regain series lead TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

the game. Michael St. Croix managed to get a stick on the puck while being tied up in a one-on-one battle when entering the zone, and roofed a shot over Skapksi’s blocker. Almost 90 seconds later, the Ice answered right back, as Luke Philp capitalized on a rebound in front of Brossoit to draw the two teams even. But the tie didn’t last. Curtis Lazar, who has been scoreless in Edmonton’s postseason, scored his first goal under a minute after Philp’s marker to put the Oil Kings back in the lead. St. Croix padded the lead with a lucky deflection when his centering pass deflected off an Ice defenceman and into the net to give Edmonton a 3-1 cushion after the first frame. Kootenay had some better pressure in the second period, especially in the latter half, when Travis Ewanyk served a penalty for the Oil Kings.


A Kootenay Ice player sprawls in front of Edmonton Oil Kings goaltender Laurent Brossoit, who turns the puck aside as teammate Curtis Lazar scrambles at the side of the net during WHL action at Western Financial Place on Tuesday night. “They definitely had some time in our end and had some opportunities, but obviously Brossoit was big there for a couple big stops and, luckily, we were

A few mistakes here and a few mistakes there translated into a 7-1 loss for the Kootenay Ice at the hands of the Edmonton Oil Kings on Tuesday night at Western Financial Place. Edmonton built on a 3-1 lead before the first 10 minutes of the game expired, and did more damage as the game went on to score a decisive victory that put them back in the series lead. “We were down, but we’re not out,” said Ice defenceman Joey Leach, on how the team was feeling after the opening period. “We obviously weren’t in a spot we wanted to be, but we were in a spot where we should’ve been able to come back from.” Despite the score, it seemed as if Edmonton’s ability to finish on their chances was the main reason for their scoring prowess. Kootenay definitely had chances to bury the puck, but Oil Kings net-

minder Laurent Brossoit had a strong game and bailed out his team when the Ice went on the attack. Brossoit made a total of 24 saves, while Ice starter Mackenzie Skapski was replaced by Wyatt Hoflin in the third period after Edmonton’s fifth goal. The two Kootenay goaltenders collectively stopped 32 shots. The powerplay was an issue again for the Kootenay squad, failing to convert on three opportunities, as Edmonton have continued their streak of killing off every single penalty throughout the series. “We got a few more shots, we tweaked it a bit from what happened [before], but we just got to bear down,” said Leach. “They give us the opportunities, we’ve got to be able to put them in the back of the net.” The Oil Kings were looking for a response after getting rattled by a 2-1 OT loss in Rexall Place and they got it less than two minutes into

able to get a couple goals as well,” said St. Croix. Edmonton added to the lead with a late goal from Luke Bertolucci, who went wide on the Ice defence and cut around the back of the net for a wraparound goal. Kootenay continued to melt in the third period, on goals from Griffin Reinhart, Trevor Cheek and Cole Benson, but things heated up with a brief scrap between Zach McPhee and Mitch Moroz. “Obviously, we have some weapons up front,

but it’s a team effort, and we got to focus on that team-first mentality and hopefully win tomorrow,” said St. Croix. “They came back, after a 9-0 win, they beat us, so we can’t take them for granted and they’re definitely going to come hard tomorrow.” WHL NOTES: The Oil Kings team bus smoked an elk on Sunday night on their way down to Cranbrook, but that didn’t seem to affect their performance. Roadblock to the Memorial Cup—the Saskatoon Blades, hosts of the CHL tournament this

year, are one loss away from an early exit from the WHL playoffs at the hands of the Medicine Hat Tigers, who have won three straight. The Hurricanes fired Rich Preston, head coach and general manager for the last four seasons, after missing the playoffs for as many times during his tenure. The Seattle Thunderbirds are doing their best David and Goliath impression, and are one win away from upsetting the Kelowna Rockets, as all three games went to the overtime frame.

Canada uses same lineup that beat Spain for Davis Cup tie against Italy C ANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO - Canada is going with Davis Cup experience for its first ever World Group quarter-final tie. World No. 16 Milos Raonic will lead Canada into the April 5-7 bestof-five series against Italy at the Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre in Vancouver. He will be joined by Davis Cup veterans Frank Dancevic and Vasek Pospisil and doubles ace Daniel Nestor. It’s the same lineup

that led Canada to a first-round win over Spain earlier this year. A notable exception from the announced lineup is No. 97 Jesse Levine, Canada’s only other player in the top 100 of the ATP rankings. He will be joining the team in Vancouver as an alternate along with Filip Peliwo and Adil Shamasdin. “We have the same group of guys already in Montreal working hard to get ready to play this team and we will con-

tinue the preparation in Vancouver next week leading up to the tie,” team captain Martin Laurendeau said in a statement. “We are still on a high from making history in February and we want to ride that momentum, take advantage of this opportunity and keep this going into the semifinals.” The winner of this tie will move on to the semifinals in September to face the winner of a tie between Serbia and the United States.

Romero won’t begin the season Gymnast makes the grade for provincial team as fifth starter for Blue Jays Leanne Perrich is off Tre vor Cr awley Sports Editor

L arry Millson Canadian Press

DUNEDIN, Fla. Ricky Romero’s encouraging start Tuesday was not enough to make up for a rocky pre-season. The Toronto Blue Jays announced that the left-hander has been optioned to single-A Dunedin of the Florida State League. The move came shortly after Romero picked up the win in Toronto’s 6-3 victory over Pittsburgh. It was considered a make-or-break start for Romero, who had a decent outing but didn’t do enough to make up for his spring struggles. Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos said the lefthander simply ran out of time to make him as good as he should be to be part of the club’s rotation. “We ran out of time,” Anthopoulos said. “He’s working on something that he hasn’t completed yet. We didn’t have enough time to get him to get him to complete it.” Romero went 1-1 in five Grapefruit League starts with a 6.23 earnedrun average. But his worst outing doesn’t show up in the exhibition standings. Romero was lit up in a worrying

minor-league start last week, allowing four runs and five walks while retiring only eight batters. Romero opened last season as Toronto’s No. 1 starter, but struggled to a 9-14 record with a 5.77 ERA in 32 starts. The move Tuesday came hours after Romero allowed six hits, three walks and three runs (two earned) while striking out two over 4 1/3 innings against Pittsburgh. “Ricky was better today, there’s no doubt about it and he’s making strides,” Anthopoulos said. “You could see it, everything was better but he’s not there yet. Could we have started with him? Sure, and ultimately it may have come in Toronto as well because he’s making strides here. But he’s not ready and he’s not as sharp as he needs to be and he needs more time.” Dunedin, the club’s affiliate in the advanced-A Florida State League, was chosen because the weather is more conducive for getting in consistent work than teams in the northeast. “It’s hard to work on things at the big-league level,” Anthopoulos said. “It’s so results oriented.” The adjustments

Romero is making involve him having his hips facing more directly to home plate on his delivery. He tends to throw across his body at times and that hampers his control. Anthopoulos could not say how long the process would take, but he said that Romero has been showing progress during his work between starts. “It’s now a matter of carrying over his bullpens to his games,” Anthopoulos said. “And that takes time.” Romero found himself fighting for the last spot in the rotation this spring after the Jays picked up R.A. Dickey, Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle over the off season. J.A. Happ, who has pitched well in spring training, will likely get Romero’s fifth spot in the rotation. Happ has a spring training record of 1-1 with a 1.89 ERA in six outings, including five starts. Happ is scheduled to make his first start of the season on April 6 against the Boston Red Sox. The Blue Jays open the season April 2 against the Cleveland Indians at Rogers Centre. Holdover Brandon Morrow is the other starter.

Canucks win fifth straight, beat Blue Jackets in a shootout C anadian Press

VANCOUVER When the Vancouver Canucks and Columbus Blue Jackets come together the goals are far and few between. Cory Schneider made 17 saves and Max Lapierre scored the shootout winning goal as the Canucks beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 1-0 on Tuesday for their fifth straight victory. The last two meetings between the clubs both played in Columbus - have ended in a 2-1 result. One was a shootout victory for Vancouver on March 12, and the other an overtime win on March 8 for the Blue Jackets. Schneider saw just two shots in the opening period on Tuesday and eight total shots through

40 minutes. “It’s better than 40 shots, but it is challenging to just make sure you are sharp and ready and you haven’t really felt a puck and sometimes it’s nice to get a feel for it and just get your hands going and seal it up and stuff like that,” said Schneider. “I haven’t really experienced a game like that at this level so it was a challenge.” Schneider made a number of big stops in the third, including a few off of Nick Foligno, who was easily the most dangerous Blue Jacket with six shots. However, the biggest save came from defenceman Dan Hamhuis with just over a minute to play when he slid across to kick out Folig-

no’s shot after taking a back-door pass. “Just trying to help him out there,” said Hamhuis. “A desperation play, got lucky.” Vancouver (18-9-6) moved past idle Minnesota into third-place in the Western Conference, and into the Northwest Division lead. Columbus (13-13-7) moved up one spot to 10th in the West, but that single point can be attributed to Blue Jackets netminder Sergei Bobrovsky. “He was by far out best player out there, he gave us a chance to maybe win in overtime,” said Vinny Prospal. “We don’t score enough goals as it is and today I don’t think we really played that hard as a team.”

to the biggest stage of her gymnastics career. The Cranbrook athlete did well enough in trials to earn a spot on Team B.C. that will compete in the upcoming Western Canadian Gymnastics Championships in Winnipeg. Perrich came in third overall in trials in Langley over spring break, with results good enough to get onto the provincial team, which is a first-ever feat for a female gymnast out of the Key City Gymnastics Club. “It’s really exciting…I really wanted to try and make it this year. If I didn’t make it this year, I was going to try again next year,” said Perrich, a Grade 11 student at Mount Baker Secondary School. “It’s a whole different kind of thing, because you travel with the team and I won’t know anyone there, so it’s kind of exciting to get to know new people and train with them and compete in a bigger competition.” The Western Canadian Gymnastics Championships pits the top gymnasts from B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The

vincials last year, where she competed in P4 (level 4), but decided to move up another step this past season. Perrich has been with the club for the last 12 years, and has worked with Ricks for a lot of them. “It’s been great, because all along, she went at her own pace and had progressed at her own pace, so it was nice to see all that hard work pay off for her,” Ricks said.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You have your hands full juggling different issues. Everyone has an opinion, and you seem to be the person who offers stability. Your resourcefulness finds ways to come to an agreement with which nearly everyone is content. Tonight: Don’t lose your temper -- take a walk instead. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You have a lot of ground to cover. Pressure builds, which creates more back-and-forth between you and someone else. You can’t sit on your anger much longer, as it is likely to emerge, no matter what you do. Don’t allow others’ pressure to faze you. Tonight: Relax at home. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You could feel pulled in two different directions. Your awareness of the different possibilities will help you decide. You might not get others’ support for a decision, but follow through on it anyway -- you know what is best for you. Tonight: Spice up your life.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) You are likely to feel the impact of today’s Full Moon. Lie low if you can, as it will be more aggravating if you are out dealing with others. A loved one decides that it’s his or her way or the highway. Know when to pull back and not get involved in a power struggle. Tonight: At home. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You could feel unusually pressured by people seeking you out left and right. You might encounter the unexpected with a loved one. A partner suddenly could veer in a new direction. Avoid someone in your day-to-day life who often challenges you. Tonight: Talk up a storm. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Your spending could spiral out of control without self-discipline. Certain items might be too hard to pass up. Your creativity will emerge as you try to find a different way to get what you want without breaking the bank. Your fiery side emerges with a partner. Tonight: Plan on taking it easy. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

For Better or Worse

You are full of energy, and seem to be the least affected by the Full Moon. Your ability to step in and make a situation work comes to the forefront. Unusual news from someone at a distance could have you pondering different possibilities. Tonight: Whatever makes you happy. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Much is going on behind the scenes. Every time you go off and try to do something, it seems as if you hit some kind of complication. Don’t push to have your way. Do what you feel is necessary, and only that. You laugh, and someone will lighten up. Tonight: Off on your own. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You see the value in nearly every suggestion or idea. The problem is deciding which one to choose when there is so much focus on whose idea is right. Figure out what you want rather than what is most popular. Everything will work out. Tonight: Where friends are. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Keep reaching out to someone you care about, even though

this person often creates tension. A situation might force you to take the lead. Keep smiling and remain upbeat. You could be surprised by what is going on behind the scenes. Tonight: Could go late. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You might want to detach, as it could be difficult to come to an agreement with someone who is determined to be right. Let different opinions come forward without taking any of them personally; otherwise, communication could take on a negative tone. Tonight: At a favorite spot. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Deal with someone’s need to be in control. A power play is best left alone. On a superficial level, this person might win. On a deeper level, however, victory will be yours. A friend suddenly could reverse direction or do something differently. Tonight: Be a team. BORN TODAY Singer Stacy Ferguson aka Fergie (1975), singer Mariah Carey (1970), actor Michael York (1942)

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I am married to a wonderful guy who has a daughter by his ex-girlfriend. I have not yet met my stepdaughter. Her mother has full custody and won’t allow my husband access. I am older than my husband by three years. I want to have a child. Before we married, my husband and I talked about having kids. We talked about it again last December, and we agreed that it was time to start a family. Here’s the problem: He has now decided he’s not ready. I work in the maternity ward of a local hospital, and I see the complications older women can have with pregnancy and with delivery. I am getting close to that age. I want to have a healthy pregnancy and child, but the longer we wait the harder it will be. My feeling is that one is never really “ready” for kids, but you make the necessary sacrifices to have something so amazing in your life. I have asked my husband why the sudden change in attitude, and his only response is, “I don’t know.” I’m getting tired of that, but when I say so, he replies, “I feel ya.” Totally not helpful. I don’t want to force him to have a baby, but I want a family and am getting tired of his excuses. I love my husband, but this is driving me crazy. How can I find out what is really bothering him and get him on the same page again? -- Monica Dear Monica: Whether or not to have children is one of those non-negotiable issues that can break up a marriage. Your husband is being evasive and seems uninterested in the idea of children. We wonder why he hasn’t fought harder to be a part of his daughter’s life. If having a child is crucial to you, your husband needs to know that you are willing to leave the marriage in order to find a more cooperative partner. Frankly, we aren’t sure he will make any effort to stop you. Dear Annie: I have worked in the restaurant industry all of my life. Our place is near a clinic. It’s one thing to leave gum under the tables, but I am amazed at the number of people who leave their used bandages, cotton and surgical tape. They just put it on their plate and expect us to dispose of it. Yuck. I understand that these people are coming to eat after having procedures done, and I am grateful for their business. But would it be too much to ask that they dispose of these medical bandages in the bathroom garbage? It’s pretty disgusting to have these things on the table. -- A Waitress, Not a Nurse Dear Waitress: We agree. Since you get a lot of clinic customers, you can ask management about posting a sign asking people to dispose of post-procedure bandages in a specially designated “hazardous waste” container in the bathroom. But some people will leave them on the table regardless. It might be wise to talk to management about having a box of disposable gloves that can be worn when clearing the tables. Dear Annie: This is for “Concerned,” who objected to having his late wife’s photo displayed at his granddaughter’s wedding. When my daughter married, she had a table in the lounge area with photos of both sets of parents, even though one set was divorced. No one objected, including the new significant others. She also included photographs of all four sets of grandparents, even though three were deceased. The bride could put a picture of her grandfather and grandmother together, and also one of the grandfather with his new wife. Seems a no-brainer to me, and it’s silly of the grandfather to be so petty about it. Weddings are headaches enough. -- Grateful We Get Along in My World Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
