Town hosts Let’s talk business forum Suggestions to attract businesses and increase population a priority for prosperity in Princeton. Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

Owners, operators and employees of local businesses attended a meeting with Mayor and Council on Wednesday, Jan 15 at the Riverside Centre. The topic of discussion for the evening was Supporting our Downtown. Mayor Frank Armitage opened the discussion by stating that, “Suggestions and solutions that we could implement collectively are welcomed.” He added that, “We have seen with the hospital closure, how hard work and working together equaled good results.” It was stated that 17 out of the 75 business buildings in the downtown core were empty. Suggestions for reasons why and solutions to the issues were then discussed among the group; Rental/lease pricing is stated to be high for many of the buildings. The Business Park: the lots have not been selling. - It was suggested that Council consider a tax holiday or sell the land at cost in order to get businesses up there. Zoning and bylaws: it is felt that some of the bylaws (ie; parking, lighting, signage) cause roadblocks for businesses and should be reviewed to make Princeton more ‘business friendly.’ It is suggested that Zoning bylaws should protect the investors.

Peewee Posse player Curtis Gould takes a ‘flying shot on goal’ during the Princeton Posse vs Abbotsford Nighthawks tournament game on Saturday afternoon. The Posse Pewwees won all the tournament games and went on to be tournament champs.

Posse Peewees win tournament Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

The Princeton Posse Peewee team take top spot in the Peewee House Tournament hosted by the Princeton and District Minor Hockey Association at the Princeton Arena this past weekend. Eight teams participated in the three day tournament which began on Friday afternoon. The Princeton Posse, Kelowna Stingrays, Abbotsford Nighthawks, Aldergrove Bears, Kelowna Predators, Kamloops Predators, Grand Forks Bruins and the Chilliwack Blades all played hard over the weekend vying for the top spot and the House Tournament Cup.

The Princeton Posse Peewee’s however, played top notch all weekend long, winning all three of their tournament games; Posse Peewee 7 vs Aldergrove Bears 0, Posse Peewee 8 vs Kelowna Stingrays 4 and Posse Peewee 9 vs Abbotsford Nighthawks 1—then on Sunday, Posse Peewee’s win the tournament against finalist team Grand Forks Bruins. But, that’s not all...This team has won every game they have played this year. As of Friday, Jan 17 they have won 16 games, have no losses and no ties. Next up for the team are the playoffs and then possibly on to the provincials. Good luck Princeton Posse Peewee’s. The Spotlight will provide playoff dates as they are announced.

Valley First awards grant to Princeton Rotary Club to help finish project Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

There is still another $20,000 needed to be raised in order to get the Riverside Community Kitchen open and running, but the recent grant from Valley First takes it one step closer. The Valley First Community Endowment grant of $5000 was presented to Judy Short of Princeton Rotary who heads up the project. “This grant will go towards the air intake system,” said Short as she gave Darren Bitzer and Dean Wonneberg of Valley First a tour of the kitchen in progress. “We are pleased to present this grant,” said Wonneberg, “being responsible and looking out for our community is what we are about.” “I can see many other great projects developing from this,” he added. The cost to hook up the air intake system for the kitchen is $48,000 and, “thanks to Valley First, we’ve almost enough to get it done,” said Short. Dinner Theatre evenings, weddings, receptions, — a place for community events and more

are what inspired the Riverside Community Kitchen project. The kitchen project was started by Rotary three years ago. In that three years $60,000 has been raised with grant funding from: Princeton Weyerhaeuser, the Town of Princeton, district designated grants from Rotary International, Community Foundation of the South Okanagan Similkameen, The Similkameen Spotlight and partnering community businesses, personal donations and by Princeton Rotary fundraisers such as Wine Fest and the Rotary Golf Tournament, and now, the Valley First Endowment grant. “The community of Tulameen has been a huge help and deserves tremendous thanks,” said Short. They donated approximately $3400 worth of bottles towards the project “A special thank you to Mike Sanderson for the organizing and for transporting the bottles,” she added. Short says that Rotary is grateful for all the support for this project, “we’ve got about another $20,000 to go to finish,” she said, “and we’re going to do it.”

Health Care Steering Committee provides update

The Princeton Health Care Steering Committee held its fourth monthly meeting at Princeton General Hospital on December 17, 2013. The Committee has achieved many of its goals and continues to work on its mandate to develop and sustain an effective health care model for people living in and around Princeton. The following is a list of some of our achievements to date: Automated External Defibrillators (AED) An AED is a portable electronic device used in cases of life threatening cardiac arrhythmia, otherwise known as a heart attack. The device uses simple audio and visual commands to instruct the layman in the use of the AED. Rapid treatment by defibrillation can save the life of heart attack victim. Working in conjunction with the BC Ambulance Service, two AEDs have been installed in our community. With advice and assistance provided by Steering Committee member Paul Swain, it was decided to install one at the Princeton Curling Club (to be relocated to the Princeton Golf & Country Club during the summer months) and the other at Riverside Community Centre. These new devices are added to existing AEDs located at the Princeton Arena and in all smaller communities in rural Princeton (Area H). Transportation In cooperation with Dr. John Adams and Lynn Pelly of Princeton Community Services, the Steering Committee reviewed Princeton’s health care transportation options. Subsequently, a brochure was developed, outlining the variety of options available for getting to medical appointments in Princeton and Penticton. Transportation assistance can be requested by calling 250-2956666. Area H Representative At its December meeting, the Steering Committee unanimously accepted Brad Hope’s recommendation that John Akerley become the representative for Area H. Akerley joins representatives Judy Short and Walter Hogg who were appointed by Town of Princeton. Akerley’s first meeting will be on January 20th. Local Artwork One of the goals of the Steering Committee is to partner with local artists to create a more welcoming and healing space for patients in the health care buildings. As a first step toward achieving that goal, the Committee has recently received several prints of paintings by watercolour artist Sandy Spring. This generous donation is in addition to rotating art displays to be organized by Marjorie Holland and the Princeton Arts Council. Princeton General Hospital and Cascade Clinic The Steering Committee recognizes the excellent work being done by the health care professionals and staff at Princeton General Hospital and the Cascade Clinic. Over the past few months,

three Doctors, one Registered Nurse, and two Licensed Practical Nurses have joined the team at the clinic and hospital, providing primary, acute, emergency, and hospice care to our community. With the recent retirement of Dr. John Adams and Dr. David Smith, this outstanding team has assumed the monumental responsibility of becoming familiar with the needs of their new patients and transitioning their records to the Cascade Clinic. To accommodate the increase in the number of practitioners and the resultant increased flow of patients, the facilities at Cascade Clinic are undergoing improvements. One new office has been added and further renovations are planned. The telephone system has been upgraded and adjustments are being made to make the system more efficient. In response to a letter to the editor in one of our local papers, a new handicapped parking stall has been added to the parking lot at the Cascade Clinic. HART The South Okanagan’s High Acuity Response Team, or HART as it’s commonly known, was launched on March 14, 2012 and serves the communities of Princeton, Keremeos, Oliver and Summerland. The team consists of six highly trained critical care nurses based at Penticton Regional Hospital, who respond with a BC Ambulance Service (BCAS) basic life support ambulance team to provide ground transport for acutely ill and injured patients from outlying rural and remote communities needing higher levels of care. Respiratory therapists are also called in to assist when required. One of the greatest benefits of the HART program is that it alleviates the need for doctors or nurses to leave their home community to accompany patients on high acuity transfers. Instead, they remain in their community to continue providing care to other local patients. The acutely ill or injured patient is then transferred by HART to a regional facility like Penticton Regional Hospital or a major hospital in Kelowna or Kamloops. Up to December 31, 2013, the HART team had provided 39 transfers from Princeton General Hospital since its launch in March 2012. The Penticton Regional Hospital HART team is holding regular Clinical Outreach sessions for staff. The purpose of the sessions is to review transport processes, recent transfers, and provide staff in-service training on management of acutely ill and injured patients. While there, the HART members are also an extra pair of hands to assist PGH staff with patient care. Contact the Steering Committee The Princeton Health Care Steering Committee would like to hear from you. Members of the public can share their comments or concerns by sending an email to comments@princetonhealth. ca or by mail to P.O. Box 257, Princeton.

Cleaning up our own space Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

Kudos to Mayor and Council and staff of the Town of Princeton. Last Wednesday a forum was provided for members/owners of the business community to come together to voice their concerns and offer solutions to the seemingly dwindling amounts of businesses in our downtown core. It was noted that 17 out of 75 business buildings were not in use. Numerous issues that were said to be a hindrance to business were discussed and suggestions to solve those hindrances were made. Five volunteers from the business community also came forward to form a committee to work with Council on resolutions. Working with Council to solve problems with bylaws, zoning and main signage issues is possible, but I don’t believe that Council can do anything to solve or control issues like rental/lease pricing, customer service issues, hours of operation, whether we advertise our business or don’t, or whether or not our storefronts are clean or are in a state of disrepair. Sure I believe that Council should be working to promote our community—they represent us. But as businesses, it is up to us to promote ourselves to not only our community but to those who just come to visit as well. Our business is our livelihood and it is our responsibility. It is up to us as business people in the community to present ourselves and our products in the best way possible. First impressions are huge, and if the first impression someone has is that of an unkempt outside looking in, there is hardly a chance that a would be customer would walk through your door. If customer service is an issue, customers will not return. On the other hand, shopping local is important in the whole support system of the community we live in. Not only do you support the businesses, and employees, in one way or another, you are supporting your community and yourselves. Local businesses give endlessly to the community. Non-profit organizations would not survive, if not for the generosity of local businesses. If not for the non-profits, I don’t think there would be a whole lot of activity within the community. It’s a whole complex circle of issues and resolutions. We need more people to keep business alive, we need more business to employ more people... and so on. Working to better the items we can control like the responsibilities that go along with managing our own businesses is a good place to start. Convincing land/building owners to come back to reality with rental/leasing and selling prices would be another. (That goes for residential as well) Let’s get some pride going folks, maintain, enhance and beautify what we have first and lets make a good impression that lasts and will entice others to join us.

SCHOOL DISTRICT NO. 58

Looking for answers from Interior Health Attention Dr. Robert Halpenny, The Cascade Clinic in Princeton has three new doctors, a total of four and one nurse practitioner, but there are three phone lines and only one receptionist to handle all the calls! There are many residents complaining about the new system. There are also complaints about the reception area, but I am not personally aware of this. In regards to the clinic: On the afternoon of Jan 6, a woman called the clinic to make an appointment, after four hours of alternately getting busy signals or a constant ringing, she gave up and called again the next day. On Jan. 9 I started calling at 1:03 p.m., to make an appointment for a driver’s exam. Between 1:03 and 1:25 p.m., I kept getting a recording -�Office closed, hours are etc and closed between 12 to 1 p.m. Someone answered at 1:25 p.m., I mentioned the 12 - 1 p.m. closure, and was told in a surly tone, “I’m answering now.� I was taken aback at this response but I let it pass at that time and got an appointment for Jan. 31. The form I need for the driver’s exam is due back in Victoria in 45 days and when I get in for the appointment, three weeks

Thanks and appreciation Dear Editor: I wish to thank The Town of Princeton, (Mayor and Councillors) (Residents and Businesses) for instigating the “Downtown Businesses� concerns. I was impressed with the involvement, attendance and discussions had. To have instigated the placement of a committee to further input and action is refreshing. I as a concerned citizen, a previous and possible future business person within our community, look forward to the possibilities to keep our business core growing, as well as maintaining and sustaining in all aspects of happy residents and prospering local businesses. We have in our community, expertise, talents and skills that abound. Lets keep on growing. Thank you, W. George Harry. Princeton, B.C.

of those days are gone. I called the next morning and spoke with the regular receptionist and got an earlier appointment. With the way the government moves (slow) in most matters, and with the mail being what it is, I just hope the form arrives in allotted time. I have been a resident of Princeton for 20 years and I have never had to wait more than four to five days for an appointment and I was the patient of a very busy doctor. One last thing — another lady after waiting a great length of time in the clinic, to get a prescription filled had to finally tell the receptionist that she had to go back to work. The lady was told to go to the Emergency Room, which she did the next day. After another hour and a half of waiting there, she got her prescription. With four doctors and a nurse practitioner residents are wondering, why the long waiting periods? Does anyone have an answer to this? Thank you, Kay Goglin Princeton

Open letter to Interior Health First and foremost, I would like to extend my appreciation to Interior Health for the quick response to my suggestion and supplying the extra Handicapped Parking spot at the Cascade Clinic. I do have a couple more suggestions: Have the doctors put on a clinic on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (Rotating shifts of course, so no one has to work every weekend) The reason for this suggestion is because the Emergency Room (ER) is stock full on the weekends. A Saturday Clinic would help to alleviate having to go to the ER to get prescriptions renewed, or to let’s say having to come in on the weekend to have a frozen shoulder checked due to the fact you can’t get an appointment to see your doctor for three weeks. Also, I believe hiring another employee to help man the telephone lines in the clinic would be a tremendous asset. That way, the phone would be answered when you do call to make said appointment. Thank you again, Gail Davidson Princeton

Health Minister’s statement on National Non-Smoking Week VICTORIA - Health Minister Terry Lake issued the following statement in recognition of National Non-Smoking Week from Jan. 19 to 25 and Weedless Wednesday on Jan. 22, 2014: “I grew up in a house filled with smokers. I saw my parents and siblings struggle to break their terrible addiction to cigarettes. We nursed my mum through multiple heart attacks, lung cancer and emphysema which ultimately claimed her life. “I know many British Columbians have had similar experiences trying to break their cycle of addiction or help their family and friends do so. This National Non-Smoking Week, I implore all British Columbians to consider the health effects of smoking; which include lung, throat and oral cancer, heart disease, stroke, emphysema, and other serious ailments. Second-hand smoke causes numerous health problems in infants and children including severe asthma, respiratory infections, ear infections and sudden death syndrome.

“Here in B.C. we continue to have the lowest smoking rates in Canada at 14.5 per cent, which is a reflection of the importance British Columbians place on a healthy lifestyle supported by our strong tobacco control policy and smoking cessation programs. “Through B.C.’s Smoking Cessation Program and QuitNow services, hundreds of thousands of British Columbians are supported in taking active steps toward making a choice to protect their own health and that of their families. The program provides support in quitting as well and free smoking cessation aids. It is easily accessible by calling HealthLink BC at 8-1-1 or visiting: www.quitnow.ca “Quitting smoking is one of the best things you can do for your health and it’s never too late to quit. On Weedless Wednesday smokers can try going just one smoke-free day as a beginning of their journey to better health. “I encourage all British Columbians who smoke to take advantage of the Smoking Cessation Program and to consider quitting during National Non-Smoking Week.�

Robert A. Hunt and his family came to Princeton in 2005. He says that he and his family, “couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.” He, his wife Tina and their five children love Princeton and enjoy it’s outdoor recreation especially. They also enjoy reading together and writing together. Between himself and his daughter Stacey, who writes fantasy, there are 14 books. Stacey helped her father find his way to eBooks and now his titles can be found on Amazon.com. Hunt is employed by Copper Mountain Mine and thoroughly enjoys his work there. Writing is not just a hobby for Hunt, it is a passion he has had since he was a young boy. “In grade six my school teacher told me, the sky is the limit—there are no boundaries, he said, “and it just stuck with me.” Hunt offers great appreciation to Ms. Dierra Maynard. “Dierra was a big help in getting me going with my books,” he said, “by her helping me with the first books ‘Coalmont and Crater’ she helped me with them all.”

Hunt was unsure about sharing his work with the public, but getting published and receiving feedback has been encouraging and he now wishes to share his stories. If you are a sci-fi fan, check out the Genation Series. To fulfill the inner need to explore his own spiritual awareness and beliefs, Hunt embarked on a series entitled Legend; Feed your curiosity by discovering The Crater Mountain Sasquatch Legend and learn about a legend people rarely spoke about for it was just too fantastic to be taken seriously—enter the little mining town of Coalmont. A copy of The Coalmont Legend is available for viewing at the Coalmont Hotel. Titles by local author Robert A. Hunt are available at Amazon.com - ‘kindle store.’ If you are interested in his novels, you are welcome to send him a friend request on Facebook h t t p s : / / w w w. f a c e b o o k . c o m / p r o f i l e. php?id=100007192625193, visit his personal Blog; http://genationofficial.blogspot.ca/ and as a special treat, if you download eBooks, the novel, ‘Genation: Earth Volk’ is available on Smashwords.com for free.

A safety message from Princeton GSAR Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

As well as specialized trainings like the ‘Ice Rescue’ techniques described last week in The Spotlight, Princeton Ground Search and Rescue (GSAR) members are subject to training as soon as they volunteer. All members take the Ground Search and Rescue Course which is approximately 80 hours of training. They are all certified in First Aid with Transportation Endorsement - approximately 16 hours training. All members have to complete an overnight ‘campout’ training exercise where they use GPS and compass training, learn to build their own shelter and spend the night alone so they can experience somewhat of what a subject may feel when lost. They are members of and participate in Mutual Aid Training with South Okanagan Similkameen Search And Rescue: Oliver/Osoyoos, Keremeos, (Princeton) and Penticton SAR. GSAR meets three times a month at the SAR Hall located at the Princeton Airport. Classroom training, outdoor training including how to use their rescue equipment is alternated throughout the month. Not only do they learn how to track people, how to help with first aid, they learn how to package people up if injured and how to transport using items like their snowmobiles, atv’s and the new Ranger as well. Donations from people, companies and

organizations is what helps to keep Princeton GSAR members prepared. GSAR appreciates the support of Fortis BC, The RDOS and the Town of Princeton, Mac’s Auto Parts Ltd., The Loonie Bin, Princeton Hospital Auxiliary, China Creek Internet, Princeton Septic, Huffy’s Auto, Princeton Outdoor Supply, and Barry Beecroft Fuel Distributors Ltd. “We also appreciate the gaming grant funding we receive from the government,” said Randy Rorvik manager, Princeton GSAR. This funding has made much of the equipment purchases possible for GSAR. Princeton Ground Search and Rescue would like residents to know that they will not be charged to be rescued. They do not want people hesitating to call for help for fear of having to pay for such service. At this time of year, they would also like to remind residents to dress appropriately during recreation time. Use the layer system, while snowmobiling, hiking, skiing, even fishing. The Underwear Layer: primary function is to control moisture next to the skin. Polyesters and Polypropylene work Insulation Layer: This layer should offer insulation while absorbing and transferring outwards the moisture passed from the underwear layer beneath. Materials in this layer include wool, fleece, pile and occasionally down. The Shell (outer) Layer: protects the wearer from wind, sun, rain, snow etc. Materials include Goretex, Sympatex, Quarpel, Stormshed etc Remember, the best way to regulate body temperature is with the layer system.

Trekking through blizzards along Wolfe Belgie Road Janis Wright Vermilion Forks Field Naturalists

Although the mild temperatures experienced lately equate to melting snow, Vermilion Forks Field Naturalists managed to find enough of the fluffy white variety for snowshoeing on Saturday, January 11. John Henry and Mary Masiel led us out to Wolfe Belgie Road, beyond the Copper Mountain mine, where we trekked along in a series of mini-blizzards, in fact. The snow fell so heavily that the 13 of us were, at times, covered in white, almost as heavily laden as the trees alongside the trail. It was truly a winter wonderland, and after two hours of climbing we stopped for lunch under the protection of trees. Within a minute John, most impressively, had a small fire started, and we gathered around in appreciation of the lovely setting. After lunch the group split up, as the more intrepid continued on

another couple of hours, while five of us retraced our steps, the indentations of which were already filled in by the continuing snowfall, and returned to our vehicles. It was a great adventure, and we do appreciate the leadership John and Mary have shown in organizing several field trips during the last few months! Our next field trip will be led by Terry and Greg Tellier on January 25, out near Osprey Lake. Originally intended to be a 2-hour snowshoe outing, this may turn into a walk along the lake, if the warmer weather persists. For more information or to confirm attendance please call Terry at 295-7354. Our next meeting will take place at Riverside Centre, Tues, Feb. 11 at 7 p.m., when John and Mary will provide Contributed photo a presentation on their trip to Croatia. As always, the public is more than welcome to join us on field trips and Thirteen members of the Vermilion Forks Field Naturalists snowshoed through a winter wonderland along Wolfe Belgie at meetings. Road on Saturday.

Beach Spirit Day: A just for fun day held

last Friday, at John Allison Elementary School. Students and teachers dressed up in beach wear and conga line danced throughout the school.

Mayor Frank Armitage extends his appreciation to all in attendance at the meeting held on Wednesday night to discuss supporting Princeton’s downtown core.

BUSINESS - from page 1 Issues with business licensing: licensing should be made possible without delays. Highway signage: needs improvement and signs to direct travellers to the downtown core and things that we are proud of (ie; museum and parks) is a necessity. (The Ministry of Transportation is already committed to changing the highway signs) Promotion of the community: promoting recreation and quality of life. Suggestions to do so; attending trade shows, creating attractions and amenities (for instance a swimming pool), promoting recreation as an economic draw and update websites and make better use of social media (ie: Facebook and web pages) Chamber to promote the business and offer courses on marketing.

Other issues of concern discussed were, the appearance of the Highway 3 boulevard, snow removal policy, utility costs, customer service, hours of operation, diversity in business, storefront appearances, working together with Area ‘H’, growing the community and creating more employment. The top of the list of concerns above all was that Princeton needs more people to support business more population - more customers. At the end of the meeting, a committee of volunteers from the business community signed up to work with Council to go over issues and work towards resolutions for them. Committee members are; Brenda Crawford, Corry Oerlemans, Dawn Gardner, Susan Robinson and Murray White.

Urgent need for volunteers Special Olympics - Princeton For 6 years, Special Olympics BC – Princeton has been providing sporting opportunities for people with an intellectual disability that reside in this community. A small group of loyal volunteers have grown this local organization that now offer; bowling, curling and bocce to their athletes. In the past they have also offered golf, alpine skiing and power lifting ,but lack of volunteers limit them to providing more opportunities. The Executive board need more volunteers who are willing to step up and take on a task or two so they can continue offering sport to these athletes. Presently this group is multi-tasking, but would love to have a designated person or co – chairs for positions such as public relations/ media, ongoing volunteer recruitment, help with program planning, coaching locally as well as getting athletes to competition within BC. The athletes train extremely hard in their weekly programs, and competitions are where they can put everything they’ve learned into motion and celebrate their successes from training. This is also where they can meet and forge long time friendships outside of their own community. Special Olympics BC is as much about sport, physical fitness , good nutrition as it is building confidence and enjoying the social aspects of this provincial organization. Leslie Thornley, Manager of Community Development will be present in Princeton to deliver a short presentation on this organization as well as explain the tasks and positions that need to be fulfilled so this chapter of Special

HOMEMADE RIBS TO REV UP YOUR SUPER BOWL PARTY PART I (PART II NEXT WEEK) A GREAT SUPER BOWL PARTY INCLUDES LOTS OF FOOD. SNACK FOODS LIKE TORTILLA CHIPS AND PRETZELS ARE STANDARD SUPER BOWL PARTY FARE, BUT THOSE WHO WANT TO GO THE EXTRA MILE CAN IMPRESS THEIR GUESTS WITH THE FOLLOWING RECIPE FOR “WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP RIBS” FROM KAREN PUTMAN AND JUDITH FERTIG’S “CHAMPIONSHIP BBQ SECRETS FOR REAL SMOKED FOOD” (ROBERT ROSE).

1

8-OUNCE BOTTLE SQUEEZABLE MARGARINE 8-OUNCE BOTTLE AMBER LIQUID 1 HONEY 1 CUP FLOWER OF THE FLAMES RASPBERRY BARBECUE SAUCE (SEE BELOW) ADDITIONAL APPLE JUICE FOR SPRAYING 1. RINSE THE RIBS UNDER COLD RUNNING WATER AND PAT DRY. PLACE IN A LARGE SEALABLE PLASTIC BAG (OR BAGS) AND POUR IN

WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP RIBS SERVES 6 TO 8 6 4 5

LBS. BABY BACK RIBS, TRIMMED AND MEMBRANE REMOVED CUPS APPLE JUICE CUPS FLOWER OF THE FLAMES RIB RUB (SEE BELOW)

CAPRICORN: Capricorn, you are focused on your work, but distractions beyond your control figure to prove frustrating. Try to remain as patient as possible, and everything will work itself out. AQUARIUS: Aquarius, take a breather and stop to give some careful thought to your recent experiences and your expectations going forward. You will benefit from this reflection in the long run. PISCES: Pisces, expect some valuable insight on your future to arrive in the next few days. It won’t be difficult to set plans in motion. ARIES: Aries, though you are eager to plow through your to-do list, certain plans may have to be postponed due to circumstances beyond your control. Go with the flow. TAURUS: Taurus, uncover the source of a disagreement with a friend and try to come to a resolution before the disagreement escalates. Handling things promptly will pay off. GEMINI: Gemini, attention to detail this week will prevent delays down the road. Keep this mind when tending to personal as well as professional matters. CANCER: You may find your mind wandering this week, Cancer. You cannot seem to focus on the tasks at hand, but work hard to limit distractions and get your work done. LEO: Leo, respect a loved one’s decision to keep a certain matter private. There’s not much you can do other than offer your support and respect. VIRGO: Virgo, carefully schedule your time this week. You cannot afford to get behind in work or miss any important appointments. Stay focused and leave some time free for the unexpected. LIBRA: Libra, you are drawn to creative endeavors these days and have less patience for tasks that are not nearly as fun. Find a healthy balance between the two. SCORPIO: Scorpio, expect to serve as a mediator for your loved ones this week. The issue that arises is relatively small, but your calm demeanor and cool head will be needed. SAGITTARIUS: Sagittarius, you may be floundering a little in the romance department this week. Stick to what your intuition is telling you, and you will come out just fine. FOR ENTERTAINMENT ONLY
