Time to engage province City will not spend more on culls C AROLYN GR ANT


Zoe Chore of the Kimberley Alpine Team racing at Purden Mountain near Prince George at the U16 Provincials, where she placed fifth overall. Team members will be racing in Kimberley this week at the FIS Keurig Super G and Downhill March 2 to 7. The races includes a night slalom Thursday at 6 p.m. Come on up and take in some races.

Dueck heads to Sochi after win C AROLYN GR ANT

The Paralympic Games in Sochi, Russia are underway and Kimberley’s Josh Dueck is heading in filled with confidence after a great showing at the World Cup finals in Italy last week. Dueck took a first in the Super G and the Super Combined as well as sixth in the Downhill last week at teh World Cup Finals. Dueck keeps his followers updated on his website, but it will not be updated while he is in Sochi as he is not allowed to post anything that might even remotely be considered mentioning his sponsors, so his website goes into

a Paralympic blackout. Just before the deadline he posted this: “This ski season has been filled with challenges and many learning opportunities for me. My ever expanding curiosity for refining my approach to how I come down the mountains has been a bit of an evil mistress. Some days I feel like an absolute champion and others I am faced with deep contemplations as to what on earth I am doing? “The great news is that thanks to the support of all the coaches and support staff at Alpine Canada I have been able to work through all of these challenges to be in a position of great stoke as we move forward to Sochi.”

The decision by Kimberley City Council to take future deer culls out of the city’s budget for the next few years had nothing to do with any warnings from the Animal Alliance out of Toronto about negative publicity and everything to do with what the city can afford, says Mayor Ron McRae. Council voted at a budget meeting last week that no more money would be dedicated to deer culls in the upcoming budget. “We had to make a number of decisions and recommendations around future financial plans,” McRae said. “At the same time we are striving to maintain the one million dollar surplus/contingency fund.” At the root of it is a feeling that it’s time for the province to step to step forward with

more assistance for communities struggling with urban deer problems. Kimberley and other communities have been lobbying for years to convince the province that deer are a provincial matter. “It’s time that the various stakeholders come together with a collective voice and engage the province around shared responsibilities for deer,” McRae said. “I am hearing from local taxpayers that they are less and less comfortable with using tax dollars to manage urban deer.” At last September’s Union of B.C. Municipalities conference a provincial task force was promised, but McRae says there has been no word on progress on that. He said that locally, Elkford, Cranbrook, Kimberley and Invermere representatives will meet to look at all kinds of options, including research on translocation.

The former Royal Canadian Legion building in Kimberley was purchased by Kent and Aaron Lees, owners of the Sullivan Pub, shortly after the Legion Branch closed. However, aside from an exterior facelift, the building has sat empty for three years. That is about to change. “We have had a lot of people asking us what we are dong with the Legion building so we thought we’d better get the word out,” Kent said.

And that word, or words, is fitness centre. The Lees have been working on a business plan for several years, visiting fitness centres around the province to see what works and what doesn’t. “We were working on gym layout and design with a company out of Vancouver, when we found out Black Bear was opening up a gym, so we shelved the idea,” Kent said. “We didn’t want to be the second one in.” But things have changed the Lees brothers have decided the time is right, now that Black Bear is closed and Curves as well.

Skate Club turns 60

Townsman Staff

It’s estimated that more than 10,000 kids have learned to skate with the Cranbrook Skating Club over the past 60 years. And a goodly portion of them were in attendence at the Club’s 60th anniversary show “Celebrating the Decades” at Western Financial Place on Saturday, March 1. Almost 200 skaters from clubs around the East Kootenay gathered to showcase the art and sport of skating, from three-year-old pre-beginners to accomplished senior soloists. Also in attendance were Keelee Gingrich and Davin Portz, the 2014 Canadian Novice Pairs Champions crowned earlier this year. Gingrich and Portz peformed two high level routines during the course of the evening. Also taking skating to a “new level” were famous local charitable comedic rivals Ken

Bridge and Steve Mercandelli, who donned wigs and tutus and cut some serious ice with coaches Daniela Hewison and Cindy Armstong in a genderbending routine. Visiting clubs included the Columbia Valley Skating Club from Invermere, the Fernie Skating Club, the Elkford Skating Club, and the North Star Skating Club from Kimberley. Featured soloists were Geneve Miller, Chloe Pitre, Jessica Hewison and Darrien Armstrong. Other groups involved who took the ice were the members of the CanSkate program, the IntroStar Skaters, the pre-CanSkaters, the CanSkate Award Winners, the program assistants, the Star Skaters, the Power Skaters and the “Dads, Dudes and Daughters.” The Cranbrook Bugle Band also performed.

He knows a little something about training, having trained for the Olympic in speed skating. He is anxious to get started. The building itself is perfect for a fitness centre, Kent says. It’s accessible, has plenty of parking and is built of solid concrete, which will allow for heavy workouts. “If your workout involves throwing a medicine ball or tractor tires, this building can take it,” Kent said. “It’s nicely laid out with a hallway so people won’t be walking right into your workout, so

The building is 6,000 square feet, with 1,000 square feet dedicated to a studio space for classes. There are further plans for a juice bar and possibly virtual golf in the winter.

The fitness centre will open in two to three months. “We don’t want to open until we can show a finished product,” Kent said. When it does open, the business will offer memberships or drop in rates, classes and personal training. Stay tuned, fitness lovers.

Jamie Casselman and Ethan Blair competed in the U14 slalom, however mother nature and a broken chair lift interfered and the boys did not get to race their giant slalom and skier cross race. As disappointing as it was for the boys, they still had a fun experience flying to Mission with their Kootenay zone team and spending a weekend with ski racers from across the province. These U14 athletes look forward to BC provincials which will be held in Sun Peaks in mid March. Three U16 racers went to Purden Mountain outside of Prince George for their provincial show down.

Rockstar Farmer tour comes to Kimberley/Cranbrook For the Bulletin

What does it take to be a rockstar farmer? Is it producing $140,000 of vegetables on a tiny 1.5 acre farm? Producing healthy food for 200 families organically and using hand tools? Or is it just making a right livelihood for your family, in these times when family farms across the country are struggling and often failing? Rockstar farmer Jean-Martin Fortier does all of these things - and he is coming to Kimberley and Cranbrook in March on a Rockstar Farmer tour with The Young Agrarians to share his story and his secrets for small scale farming success. On March 12th in Cranbrook, Jean-Martin will lead Six Figure Farming for Small Lots, a full day workshop teaching his smart, intensive farming techniques married with smart business sense. And on March 11th at Centre 64 in Kimberley, Jean-Martin will give an evening presentation sharing the ten-year story of his micro-farm and explaining intensive growing techniques. “With local organic agriculture thriving across the country and here in the Kootenays,” said Shannon Duncan of Wildsight and Cranbrook Food Action Committee, “we are excited to bring one of

Canada’s leading organic, small-scale producers to town to share his knowledge. It’s great that people can choose between an allday, in-depth workshop to really get into the details of professional farming or an inspiring shorter evening presentation.” The full-day workshop, Six Figure Farming for Small Lots: how you can start a market garden and make it both productive and profitable—without a large acreage or big capital outlay, follows on the success of Jean-Martin’s book The Market Gardener, which sold more than 15,000 copies in French and is now available in English. Jean-Martin will discuss how to: set up a micro-farm & design biologically intensive cropping systems with negligible capital outlay. farm without a tractor and minimize fossil fuel inputs through the best hand tools, appropriate machinery, and minimum tillage. grow mixed vegetables systematically with attention to best practices for weed and pest management, crop yields, harvest periods and pricing. At the Kimberley evening presentation, Jean-Martin will share the story of his success as a young professional farmer. He’ll also give an overview of his lowtech, high yield production methods,

many of which can be used by gardeners everywhere, including soils and fertility, crop rotations, seeding, starting & transplanting, row covers and low tunnels, season extension techniques, weed control and more.

“With the Public Produce Garden a success in Cranbrook and the huge growth of the Farmer’s Market,” said Shannon Duncan, “we know there is a huge appetite out there for local food and local farming. Jean-Martin’s

workshops will be a perfect kickoff to another productive year for food in the area - a year in which Wildsight will launch a public produce garden and a farmer’s market in Kimberley.” The Rockstar Farm-

er tour is a series of five workshops across BC, put on by the Young Agrarians. Wildsight and the Cranbrook Food Action Committee are co-hosting the local events. Tickets for the March 12th full day workshop in Cranbro-

ok are available on a sliding scale from $45-$75 in advance, while admission to the March 11th evening presentation at Centre 64 in Kimberley at 7:30pm is by donation, with $10 suggested. More information and tickets for thefull-day workshop are available at jmf. Information on the evening presentation is available from or 250427-2535x2. “If you’re serious about farming, I urge you to attend Jean-Martin Fortier’s workshops while he’s in BC. I have toured farms all over the west coast of North America, and I have yet to see anyone compare in production methods, soil management, crop health, product quality, and most importantly a balanced lifestyle” said Curtis Stone, farmer at Green City Acres in Kelowna.

A Premature History What’s Up? of the Second Cold War KIMBERLEY AND CRANBROOK COMMUNITY CALENDAR



he first mistake of the Ukrainian revolutionaries was to abandon the agreement of 23 February to create a national unity government, including some of the revolutionary leaders, that would administer the country until new elections in December. It would have left President Viktor Yanukovych in office until then, but with severely diminished powers, as the constitution would have been changed to restore the authority of parliament. Leaving a man who ordered the murder of dozens of protesters in power even temporarily was a bitter pill to swallow, but it had tacit Russian support because it saved President Vladimir Putin’s face. However, the crowds on Independence Square refused to accept the deal, and Yanukovych was forced to flee. Parliament subsequently ratified his removal, but it was the mob, and especially the right-wing fighting groups like Praviy Sektor, who led, and the leadership who followed. Putin was humiliated, and he was given the pretext for claiming that Ukraine had fallen to a “fascist coup” as a justification, however flimsy, for rejecting the legitimacy of the new Ukrainian government. The second grave error — and this one was entirely unforced — was the new government’s decision to repeal the law giving Russian equal status as an official language in provinces with large Russian-speaking populations. It delighted Ukrainian-speaking ultra-nationalists in the west of the country, but it needlessly alienated the two-fifths of Ukraine’s population who

speak Russian as their first language. So now Putin is bringing pressure on the new Ukrainian government by backing a secessionist movement in Crimea (where three-fifths of the people speak Russian). The rubber-stamp Russian parliament has also granted him authority to use Russian troops elsewhere in Ukraine to “protect” Russians — by which it seems to mean Ukrainians in eastern Ukraine who speak Russian, although they are not actually under attack. The Ukrainian army has been mobilised, and actual fighting could be only days Gwynne away if the Russians invade eastern Ukraine, or attack Dyer the encircled Ukrainian garrisons in Crimea. Maybe Putin is just bluffing; more likely, he doesn’t yet know himself how far he is willing to go. But one thing generally leads to another, and some bluffs are hard to walk away from. Are we on the brink of a new Cold War? It wouldn’t be a hot war, except in Ukraine. Nobody will send troops to defend Ukraine, nor should they. Nobody is in a position to stop Russia from conquering Ukraine if it chooses to, and turning it into a wider European war (or a world war) would not help matters. In any case, Moscow would probably not try to conquer ALL of Ukraine. Kyiv and the west would fight very hard, and after they were defeated they would continue to resist a Russian occupation with guerilla tactics, including terrorism. Putin doesn’t need that, so part of Ukraine would remain free, and call for outside help. It would come in the form of financial

and military aid, and maybe even what has hitherto been rigorously excluded from the discussion: NATO membership. And there Russia and everybody in NATO would sit for the next five or 10 or 20 years in a frozen confrontation that would include a trade embargo, an arms race, and a remote but real possibility of a nuclear war. This is not at all what Putin intends or expects, of course. He is calculating that once he controls the Russian-speaking parts of Ukraine, he will be able to enforce a restructuring of the country as a federation in which the government of the eastern, Russian-speaking part will be permanently under Russia’s thumb, and will have a veto on the decisions of the central government. That’s all Putin wants out of this: a Ukrainian government that always respects Russia’s wishes. It could even pursue a different policy on issues like human rights, if it wants (so long as it doesn’t give Russians ideas). He doesn’t want to micromanage the place. He’s not out to conquer the world. He’s not even out to re-conquer Eastern Europe. But Putin’s calculations about Ukraine have been wrong every single time since the turn of the century. He backed Yanukovych before 2004, and the Orange Revolution proved him wrong. He backed Yanukovych even more enthusiastically after 2010; the policy blew up in his face again. And here he is yet again, backing Yanukovych as the president-in-exile of his Russia-friendly fantasy version of Ukraine. His calculations are wrong. If he continues down this road, he will cause a quite needless political disaster.

Crown jewel on table in Cariboo


he New Prosperity mineral deposit near Williams Lake is described by the industry as one of the largest in the world, containing 5.3 billion pounds of copper and 13.3 million ounces of gold. The Harper government’s decision to reject open-pit mine development for a second time is seen by elected officials in the Cariboo region as a disaster.  One of Quesnel’s sawmills is preparing to close for good, and I’ve been told there is more to come as the post-pine beetle era unfolds.  Here in the B.C. capital, the decision is mainly viewed as a huge mistake. Taseko Mines is going to court to show that the federal panel used the wrong design when reviewing  the company’s  expensively revised plan. The province has permitted two successful mines that operate in the same area, one of which is run by Taseko.   In Ottawa, this is a Supreme Court of Canada test case over who owns the land and the mineral wealth underneath. In traditional Canadian law, the province owns it. This was highlighted in the recent discussion between B.C. Premier Christy Clark and Alberta’s Alison Redford over royalties from oil. Six aboriginal communities make up the Tsilhqot’in Nation,  which has  a long and bitter history of resistance against the

Crown. They almost won a declaration of title to 40,000 hectares known as the Nemiah Valley — forests, wild horses, minerals and all — in a 339-day trial that ended in 2007. Their case suffered a setback at the B.C. Court of Appeal, and is now before the highest court. Aboriginal rights have been established, but this would be the first clear title. Tsilhqot’in tribal chair Joe Alphonse was pleasantly surprised to see Taseko turned down again. He said the TsilhBC Views qot’in National Government is releasing its own mining Tom policies soon. Fletcher “We welcome opportunities to look at projects that are environmentally sound and we need economic opportunities,” Alphonse told the Williams Lake Tribune. Somehow efforts to move mine waste rock  from Teztan Biny (Fish Lake) to a sealed storage site two kilometres away are not enough to protect groundwater, although they are sufficient at the nearby Gibraltar and Mount Polley mines. And Alphonse makes it clear this mysterious environmental problem will be solved once he and his fellow chiefs have control of the resource. A Supreme Court of Canada ruling on aboriginal title is required to settle this. If some limited form of title is at last defined

for the treaty-less majority of B.C., or at least Tsilhqot’in territory, the fate of the mine may become clear. Conventional wisdom on this is that the mining company didn’t try hard enough to establish a working relationship with the Tsilhqot’in. For his part, Taseko CEO Russell Hallbauer says the chiefs refused to meet with him, which isn’t surprising from a group that doesn’t recognize the B.C. forests ministry either. Here’s a sample of the volume of evidence that may determine the future of B.C. Archeological studies presented at trial describe “18 roasting and/or pit depressions” at Teztan Biny. It’s not clear if these were for seasonal food preparation or for pit houses, which would indicate a more permanent settlement at the lake. Nor is it clear whether these “cultural depressions” have been identified as being of Tsilhqot’in origin. Oral histories are also uncertain. Tsilhqot’in witnesses testified that Teztan Biny has been used in the 20th century as a hunting and fishing camp. The mine was rejected due to ill-defined cultural as well as environmental concerns. B.C. residents could finally see some answers this year. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.

Ice age on the edge of town “The last ice-age continued for thou sands of years but I can’t wait that long. Pretty soon I’ll need to get to the library or those ladies down there will kill me.” My nameless neighbour


he gentleman who usually delivers my mail — and will probably continue to do so until our local service is discontinued out of spite by Canada Post — left a hand-written note on the back of one of my bills. He wrote, “Let it snow! Let it snow!” I understood; as I used to be, he is an avid skier and therefore new snow spells fun. And it did snow, but it wasn’t going to be fun for me. Without announcing the fact, the City had apparently decided to jump ahead of Canada Post and stop the delivery of snow-plowing equipment in our neck of the city. At the crack of mid-morning the next day my neighbour Rod and I stood out there in the avenue up to our none-too-elegant waists in fresh, wet powder and discussed the situation like two reasonable men. “They only do the bus-routes,” explained Rod sagaciously. “Got to get the kids to school.” We both searched for our snow shovels,

disinterred them and went to work. By lunch time I had uncovered the entrance to my driveway and was staring at my distant snow-bound house. Apparently, Rod was doing all right but his language was ripe and certainly not apt for a Sunday. Suddenly, a large mound in the snow across the road moved, broke up and became our neighbour, Henry. Obviously, he was unable to find his car, not that he would have been able to find the road, let alone drive on it. “The city only sends a truck up Peter here when they’ve nothing Warland else to do,” he spluttered, shaking a pyramid of fresh snow off his toque. I just stood there like Scott of the Antarctic, wondering if I was going to share the famous explorer’s fate, but then, stirred by an irresistible urge to get on the phone and scream abuse at someone, I began digging with a passion and finally cut a way into my drive so that the happy mailman might make another jocular visit on Monday and probably deliver a utilities bill from the city. After a long, weary day with shovel, scoop and with my mechanical plow not wanting to play that particular day, I’d cut out a path so that I might drive out of the carport. But to where? I wasn’t likely going to be able to drive


to the store for much needed food; I had no intention of shovelling the whole avenue and a couple of streets. I retired indoors, ate a frugal meal and then, after a fitful night’s sleep, I arose to note that there had actually been a visit by the absentee plowman. There was a metre-high snow-bank at each end of my driveway but the road was still ice-bound. I was trapped. Next door, Rod was leaping up and down on a mountain of hard-packed snow like a demented leprechaun; his language was shocking. There was, I felt positive, a glacier forming in our avenue and, because of gravity, it was creeping north. I could imagine it gathering momentum and size, developing monstrous crevasses and seracs and, inevitably, totally destroying the local golf course. Then there would be an uproar, I reasoned. My part of the community could be flattened but nobody in city hall could possibly survive the loss of a golf course. Something might actually be done about it. But no! More snow comes tumbling down and we up on the edge of civilization are once more buried. I’ve got my ice-axe, crampons and climbing rope ready for a Shackleton sort of expedition but, meanwhile, I’m going to check on the internet and discover how to build an igloo. It may well be needed if succour doesn’t arrive soon.

SPORTS BRIEFS Call stands in first review under MLB’s expanded replay system FORT MYERS, Fla. - The first review under Major League Baseball’s expanded replay system has taken place and after a further look that took 2 1/2 minutes, the call stood. Toronto manager John Gibbons used his challenge to ask umpires to review a play in the sixth inning of Monday’s game against Minnesota. Chris Rahl of the Twins was called safe at first base when shortstop Munenori Kawasaki’s throw pulled Jared Goedert off the bag. The umpires gathered in front of the first base dugout while the replay booth in New York looked at the play. After a wait of 2 minutes, 34 seconds, first base umpire Fieldin Culbreth spread his hands in the safe sign. MLB has expanded replay this year beyond potential home runs and boundary calls. This season, most every play except for balls-and-strikes is subject to a manager challenging the ruling. Associated Press


The Kimberley Dynamiters celebrate a goal during a 7-1 win over the Fernie Ghostriders, which clinched the series for the Nitros at 4-1. Kimberley heads into the Eddie Mountain Division final, where they will play the Creston Valley Thunder Cats.

Nitros dump Fernie 7-1 to close out series TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

With an emphatic 7-1 win over the Fernie Ghostriders on Monday night, the Kimberley Dynamiters closed out the first round of the KIJHL playoffs by winning the series 4-1. The Dynamiters now face the Creston Valley Thunder Cats in the Eddie Mountain Division final. The T-Cats swept the Columbia Valley Rockies in four

games. The Riders came into Monday’s game on life support after suffering a 4-3 OT loss on Saturday to put them in a 3-1 series deficit. The Nitros kept the foot on the gas, despite giving up the game’s first goal. That didn’t seem to matter too much as they scored three goals in the second period and four in the third. Dynamiters goaltender Jeremy Mousseau

picked up the win with a meagre 16 saves, while Austin Wells made 21 saves for the Riders. Kimberley capitalized once in seven powerplay opportunities, while

Fernie was shut out on all three of their chances with the man-advantage. Josh Teves scored five minutes into the game for a quick Fernie lead, which they held for the first period and half of the second. Then, the Dynamiters exploded. Tyson Klingspohn tied it up and Tyler Garcia followed up with the go-ahead goal a few minutes afterwards. Jared Marchi added

some insurance with 39 seconds left in the frame. The goals kept coming in the final period, as Jason Richter scored a pair while Bryce Nielsen and Andrew Miller also found the back of the net. Dynamiters forward Eric Buckley also made a return to the lineup after serving a three-game suspension for a goaltender interference incident in the opening game of the series.

Oilers sign goaltender Ben Scrivens to two-year contract extension EDMONTON - The Edmonton Oilers have agreed to terms with goaltender Ben Scrivens on a two-year contract extension. The Spruce Grove, Alta., native has posted a 3-4-0 record including one shutout since being acquired by the Oilers in a trade with the Los Angeles Kings on January 15th. The 27-year old has posted a 10-9-4 record with Edmonton and the Kings, including four shutouts and a league leading .934 save percentage. “It’s a great opportunity,” Scrivens said. “Now the real work begins... It’s great to be here in Edmonton playing at home.” He made an immediate impact when acquired by his hometown team, making 59 saves in a 3-0 win over the San Jose Sharks on Jan. 29. That set an NHL record for most saves in a regular-season shutout. The six-foot-two, 193-pound goaltender has a record of 21-23-6 and six shutouts over three NHL seasons with Toronto, Los Angeles and Edmonton. Canadian Press

Manning to helm Broncos for another season ARNIE STAPLETON Associated Press

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - A person with knowledge of the results tells The Associated Press that Peyton Manning has passed his physical on his surgically repaired neck, clearing the way for him to play in 2014. In what was considered the final formality for his return, Manning passed the exam as required by his contract that will pay him $20 million next season, according to the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because results of medical checkups typically aren’t announced. Manning won his fifth MVP award in 2013, when he set single-season records by passing for 5,547 yards and 55 TDs while guiding the Broncos to their first

Super Bowl in 15 seasons. Manning has had four neck operations, including a spinal fusion that sidelined him for all of the 2011 season. After that, he was released by Indianapolis and signed a five-year, $96 million deal with the Broncos in March of 2012. The deal requires him to pass a physical every spring to make sure his neck is holding up. Manning, who will be 38 next season, said during Super Bowl week that he had no intention of retiring after the Super Bowl. Although Manning’s plans for 2014 became a big story line in the playoffs, the Broncos front office had proceeded as though their quarterback would be returning for another run at a title. If there were any concerns about his neck, he probably wouldn’t have started

all 16 games, plus three more in the playoffs. Not only is Manning still performing at his peak level, he hasn’t lost his love for the game. Manning said upon his arrival in New Jersey for Super Bowl week that he still enjoys playing and practicing and “when you still enjoy the preparation, I think you probably still ought to be doing that.” He passed his required exit physical that all players take in the days following the Super Bowl loss to Seattle. He then played in the Pebble Beach Pro-Am golf tournament just days later, another indication that his neck is fine. Manning has gone 28-7 in his two seasons in Denver with 100 TD passes, counting playoff games.

There is still time to earn money for the ski season!

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You might sense that you have an edge, and you do in a key situation. You’ll have little tolerance for settling for anything less than what you want. Your temper could erupt at any given moment. By mid-afternoon, you’ll become far more poised. Tonight: Treat a loved one. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You could go from being somewhat blue or quiet in the morning to being Mr. or Ms. Personality by the afternoon. You’ll express a real sense of direction and draw others in closer. Even someone who does not usually agree with you could emerge. Tonight: Among the crowds. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Use the morning for a key project, when your leverage and ability to draw in others is high. By the afternoon, you might resent being bogged down by what you judge to be insignificant details. Hold your tongue, and keep your own counsel.

Tonight: Get some extra R and R. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You seem to offer a perspective that many people do not have. Your feedback is valued, even if you encounter difficulties with a higher-up. This person simply tends to be a bit of a curmudgeon. Refuse to let this person get to you. Tonight: Do what you want. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You could be overwhelmed by everything that is going on. Your temper could rise as others aggressively seek you out. Screen your calls rather than blow a fuse. Dealing with work matters might preoccupy your afternoon. Tonight: Out till the wee hours. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Deal with a partner, associate or friend directly. Both of you could be the victim of a misunderstanding. Limit the rhetoric, as you attempt to clear the air. Someone else will appreciate your ability to detach and see the big picture. Tonight: Paint the town red. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)


Though generally you’re known as the sign of diplomacy, lately you seem to be specializing in putting your foot in your mouth. Do not let today be another example of this behavior. In the afternoon, listen to a loved one’s saga. Tonight: Dinner for two. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Dive into work, and clear out as much as possible in the morning. Interpersonal interactions will take up a large part of the afternoon. You’ll enjoy the change of pace. Talk with a loved one about what you want for the two of you. Tonight: Go with the flow, but accept an invitation. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You could be frivolous in the morning and efficient in the afternoon. You suddenly might realize how much is on your plate and decide to concentrate on what must be done. Create the possibility of working at home, where you can focus. Tonight: Head home and relax. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You could be more in tune with a child, a new project or a loved

one in the afternoon. To someone close, your change in mood from the morning chilliness that emanated from you will make him or her smile. Share more of your emotional side. Tonight: Be naughty and nice. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You are likely to speak your mind and cause quite a hullabaloo. By the afternoon, you might wish that you had stayed a little more contained. Consider what might be the best peace offering or at least an expression of your caring. Tonight: Settle in at home. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Check out a financial offer or an investment in the morning. The research that you do could prove to be most worthwhile by the afternoon. A discussion could reveal a lot more about what is being offered. Fortunately, you will ask the right questions. Tonight: Hang out.

By Hillary B. Price

ANNIE’S MAILBOX by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I’d give anything to be intimate with my wife, in any form. We’ve been married for 18 years. We have not made love in more than three. We also don’t hold hands, hug, kiss or cuddle. We have pleasant conversations, and I would classify us as compatible roommates. My wife once had a very active libido, but there was a decline in sexual frequency after the birth of our second child. We had many conversations about it, but she and I both attributed it to crazy schedules and her moderate weight gain. She joined Weight Watchers and lost the weight. In the meantime, I gained 65 pounds. I help out around the house as best I can. I bathe and groom regularly. I went for counseling by myself and then started hinting to her about wanting to resume sex. Last year, I finally asked her why we don’t make love anymore. Her answer stunned me. My weight gain was such that she no longer finds me physically attractive. I thought I was a good person and a good husband. Apparently none of that mattered enough. She finally agreed to couples counseling. We went once and things improved for about two weeks, but then her mother’s health declined and everything was put on the back burner. I started going to the gym and lost five pounds, but no more. Our bed is a dead zone. I don’t know whether it’s better to be lonely in a marriage or to be alone. I know we should return to counseling, but between her mother’s health, financial issues, underachieving teenagers and my own depression, I am not seeing the point and no longer believe all of this effort will make any difference. Any suggestions? -- Frustrated on the West Coast Dear West Coast: Right now, you don’t have the energy to work on your intimacy issues on top of everything else. And even if you did, your wife might not. Life is full of stressful periods, and you cannot let the overriding problem in your marriage slide by while you wait for things to settle down. Get back into counseling for your own sake, whether your wife goes or not. It will help you reach clarity about your situation and how to proceed. And please work on your weight to get healthier. You’ll feel better mentally, as well as physically. Dear Annie: A person I know gossips nonstop. She can tell you the latest about everyone in the neighborhood. She also badmouths people behind their backs. She uses the guise of caring to find out whatever she can so she can spread more gossip. She is manipulative and deceitful and uses people to get what she wants, including favors and free rides. Worse, she presents herself as deeply religious. Am I wrong to want as little as possible to do with this woman? -- Don’t Know Dear Don’t Know: You do know. This woman sounds toxic. She doesn’t deserve an audience. Avoiding her won’t make her stop gossiping about you or badmouthing you behind your back. But at least you won’t have to listen to the malicious things she says about others, which can color how you perceive them. Dear Annie: I am writing about the letter from “Not the Company’s Bank,” the wife whose husband was not being reimbursed for his business expenses in a timely fashion. I am happy to suggest an easy solution. Hubby should go to the boss or accounting department and ask for a company credit card to be used solely for his business expenses. Instead of needing reimbursement, each month’s bill would be sent directly to the firm. The husband could have a copy in order to break down the expenses by client for billing purposes or to justify a questionable expense. The responsibility for timely payment would be squarely in the firm’s control. -- A Former Bookkeeper Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

It is

long past the time for our dog walk and both Dog Taylor and I are becoming impatient. Our human is transfixed by the glow of the television screen, which is at this moment showing images of men moving at great speeds on ice in pursuit of a small piece of vulcanized rubber. Amusing I’m sure, but compared to a dog walk, its entertainment value just doesn’t hold up for us canines. In the hopes of distracting the hominid from his electronic trance, I approach, put my head in his lap, and gaze up at him with my best “poor, sad puppy” eyes. Though we don’t share a language, the Dude immediately understands what I am trying to communicate. He tousles my ears and asks that most rhetorical of questions, “Time to go for a walk Bo?” I shake and trot for the door with Dog Taylor not far behind. We dogs are ready to romp. My human however has a few preparations to make before we go. We pried him away from one form of technology, but he is not prepared to leave his wired world behind. Even before he puts his boots on, he starts gathering gadgets. First and foremost, his digital camera so he can document this momentous occasion — the nightly walk with his dogs — for posterity. Then his cell phone, so that he can communicate at will with other hominids should he feel the need to chat. Followed by a GPS unit so we can know exactly where we are on this trail that we have walked literally thousands of times. A SPOT satellite emergency tracker is of course essential. One never knows when you will run into trouble and need to send out a signal informing search and rescue that you are in dire need of their services. And last but not least, his iPod, so he might enjoy a few tunes from the over 2598 (10.2 days worth) he has stored there. Tonight it will be something a little more up tempo as he will be skiing and there is nothing as exhilarating as cranking a few tele-turns to the blood stirring beat of The White Stripes or Big Sugar. Or at least that is the opinion of my plugged in human. Taylor and I will traipse through the winter night unencumbered by battery-powered devices. Well, almost. Our human insists that we wear headlamps around our necks so he might keep track of us in the dark. And so it was, with light emitting diodes glowing, we set out into the snow. Initially, Taylor and I take the lead on the trail. As long as we are on the flat, or going up hill, being in front of a human on skis is fine. When heading down slope however, it is best to let people — especially those who have not totally mastered the technology of skis — go first. It is just safer that way. Right off the hop, I notice two bull elk standing in a grove of trees, just off the edge of the llama pasture. I see them; I smell them and I hear them. Heck if we were just a bit closer, I could taste them. My dude, however, is oblivious. His attention currently distracted by his wrist computer that is informing him that the barometric pressure is dropping. The rest of the ski is fantastic. We get to the top of the ridge and then with the lights of town glowing below us, we chase after our person as he flies down the hill towards home. By the time we hit the llama pasture, we can hardly keep up to the crazy hominid on skis, going mach III towards the hay shed. You know, the hay shed where two monstrous bull elk with lethally pointy antlers are trying to steal a few mouthfuls of feed. Hard to know who is more surprised: our Dude by the wild-eyed, charging ungulates or the elk by the expletive spewing, charging human. It is a near miss but the collision is avoided. More by good luck than good technology however.

Dog Taylor demonstrates the safe way to descend a slope when your human is on skis. They can’t run you over if you stay behind them.

Mean while, back at the llama pasture: A bull elk with a regal rack frequents the paddock in winter in hopes of scoring a little snack from the hay shed.


The glow of civilization: Technology shines up through a crystalline wonderland.
