The Weather Network 2014


ranbrook’s Danielle Cardozo has made it through to the final nine contestants in MasterChef Canada, after a nailbiter episode Monday, March 10 where nothing was certain. “I have been waiting for that episode for months!” Danielle told the Townsman. “I knew it would get viewers on the edge of their seat.” The episode kicks off with the home cooks at Canadian Forces Base Trenton. The two teams are tasked with preparing a rib-eye steak with sauce and two sides in just two hours for 150 troops – using a military field kitchen. Danielle is chosen second by team captain Kaila Klassen, who says it’s because Danielle has surprised her. But at the end of the episode, Kaila admits she chose both Danielle and Julie Miguel as a bid to get them out, so who knows what’s true at this point? There’s tension on Danielle’s red team right away as Kaila alternates between giving orders and asking for a consensus on small decisions. Danielle and Marida Mohammed bicker about what to put in the barbecue sauce, with Danielle insisting that acidic ingredients be added later, and Marida wanting to add mustard. Danielle said tensions were running high because the contestants were sleep deprived. “It was a late night

the night before for all of us in the competition. And then we were up at 3 a.m. to get ready for the challenge. We were all exhausted and things got emotional that day,” she said. “Of course, editing focuses on the drama, because honestly, it is what people want to see. My hope for viewers is that they won’t judge everyone for our bad days, and remember that we’re all human. It was a very stressful situation to be in. Most of us are able to forgive words that are said. Our friendships off set are very different after the competition. During the competition, it’s easy for the claws to come out.” In the end, the barbecue sauce is the least of the red team’s problems. They run out of sides – brussel sprouts with bacon hash, and roast potatoes – well before the last of the troops has siphoned through their serving station. The red team loses badly to the blue team, which secures 107 of 151 votes. As the red team goes into the pressure test the next day, the judges ask team leader Kaila whether she would save herself from having to participate in the elimination challenge. She responds that she would save herself, because if she was eliminated she would never forgive herself if she had passed up the opportunity to be safe. Meanwhile, Julie and Kaila blame each other for the team’s fail-

ure, throwing snide comments, rolling eyes, and finger pointing. Then the judges throw a delicious curveball – the red team must decide among themselves who will be safe from elimination. They head into the kitchen to discuss in private.

“I was terrified that I was going to get sent home. I refused to let it happen” Danielle Cardozo The exchange shown on camera is certainly not flattering, especially for Kaila. While her team mates agree to nominate someone other than themselves, Kaila waits until they have all named someone and then refuses to save anyone but herself. “It was a lengthy and catty process. I think it was about 20 minutes before anyone nominated each other,” said Danielle. It’s Danielle who starts the ball rolling, saying that since the steaks were the only successful part of the dish, she and Marida should be safe. Since she can’t nominate herself, she names Marida. Marida reciprocates by naming Danielle. “Marida and I, despite our differences, cooked 151 steaks and got them on the plate. I couldn’t say the same about the three responsible for the potatoes and brussel sprouts. If I

couldn’t nominate myself, it only made sense to nominate Marida. We may have had our differences, but anyone who knows me knows I don’t hold grudges and I am not a catty person.” It’s two votes to save Marida and two votes to save Danielle when Kaila finally agrees to behave like an adult and chose one or the other. She chooses to save Marida. And then the judges tell the remaining four cooks that they have one hour to prepare salmon Wellington – a salmon steak topped with Swiss chard and leek and wrapped in pastry to cook. It’s incredibly tricky to cook because you can’t see or test the meat to know when it’s done. Just four minutes into the challenge, Danielle slices her hand open. She calls out, “Medic!” and continues to chop vegetables like a badass as the first aid attendant wraps it up. But it turns out to be a more serious cut than she thought, and Danielle is pulled out of the challenge for 12 agonizing minutes while the cut is attended to. “I was terrified that I was going to get sent home,” she said. “I refused to let it happen. I got the medic to over wrap it and went back in with 12 minutes lost. I had 48 minutes to do the same challenge everyone else had to do in 60 minutes. That only made me want it that much more. First off, I

was not going home on fish. Second, I was not going home on pastry.” She hits the ground running, despite the bulky plastic glove that makes it impossible to grip the salmon as she’s filleting it. Somehow, she manages to get her salmon Wellington into the oven well before her competitors, and plates it up with time to spare on presentation. The other home cooks looking on acknowledge that Danielle’s salmon Wellington is beautiful and are, once more, surprised by how competent she is. The judges are likewise impressed, with Claudio Aprile saying he doesn’t know how she managed to cook something so beautiful in so little time. They pick Danielle’s dish as their favourite, saving her from elimination. Kaila snips to the camera that it was a total fluke. “As for Kaila’s comment that it was a fluke that my Wellington made top dish alongside Julie’s Wellington, I think anyone watching knows it was hard work and determination,” Danielle said. It’s Kaila and Dale Kuda in the bottom two. Both think they’re going home after failing to cook their pastry. Ultimately, Kaila is saved again and Dale is going home, taking some colour out of the kitchen as he goes. The next episode of MasterChef Canada airs Monday, March 17 on CTV.

Kimberley RCMP nab four impaired drivers

Four impaired drivers taken off the road in three days Bulletin Staff

Kimberley RCMP took four impaired drivers off the road over three days. Detachment NCO, Cpl. Chris Newel reports that the first occurred Thursday night when an officer pulled a vehicle over for speeding on Hwy 95A near St

Mary’s Lake Road. He says two more were apprehended on Friday night at a road check held just east of Kimberley. “Those took place within minutes of each other,” Newel said. “The fourth was Saturday afternoon. Police received a driving complaint and stopped the vehicle in Kimberley. “In each case officers noted signs of alcohol consumption and made a breath demand. The driver’s supplied breath

samples that registered a “Fail” on the Roadside Screening Device. The drivers were served an Immediate Roadside Prohibition which prohibits them from driving for 90 days; the vehicles were impounded for 30 days. “In one case the driver was suspended from driving due to an impaired driving conviction in 2009. He will attend court in May to deal with that charge.”

Marysville Arena

Hockeyville wait and see We voted; was it enough? C AROLYN GR ANT

Kimberley residents were voting on Monday. Whether on cell phones, tablets or laptops, people found time for multiple Kraft Hockeyville voting as the deadline to vote the last communities into the final four of the national contest passed at day’s end. Now we wait for results, which will be announced on March 15. Marysville Arena was up against the Sun Bowl Arena in Osoyoos, the Bruderheim Arena, in Bruderheim, AB, the Akinsdale and Kinex Arena in St. Albert, AB, the Medican Multiplex in Sylvan Lake, AB, the Credit Union IPlex in Swift Current, SK and the Arborg and District Arena in Arborg, MB in the Western Final Eight. The top two move to the final four. The six who don’t make it are eligible for $25,000 in prizes each. The bottom two in the east and west brackets will receive $50,000 in arena upgrades and the top two each receive $100,000 in upgrades, and in addition the winner gets a 2014-2015 NHL pre-season game and a visit from CBC television. Having such a small community make it through may be a long show, but you never know. When entering an arena, contestants are told that it’s not the quantity of entries but the quality. The Marysville Arena project only had six letters of nomination, not very many for a winning bid, but Kimberley resident Elva Keiver was contacted by Kraft and told that it was her letter that sealed the deal for Marsyville and won it at least $25,000. See her letter, right. Check the Kraft Hockeyville website on Saturday, March 15 to see if Marysville Arena is going forward.

I would like to nominate the Marysville BC arena for Kraft Hockeyville. Our community is urgently trying to save this arena from being shut down by the City of Kimberley which runs the arena. The arena is in desperate need of a new ice plant and there isn’t any money in the budget for this project. In 2012, it was foreseen that the Marysville Arena would have to undergo an ice plant upgrade to keep it operational. In 2013, the city agreed to pay $188,000 to erect an ice plant facility, as recommended by the Safety Authority and applied for grants to help pay for the new ice plant this year. Unfortunately, the city was turned down on their applications and now is struggling with the decision to foot the bill for the $350,000 ice plant. I can remember when this arena was built in the 1960’s. My Dad, Harry Ordway, along with the Marysville Lions Club and many other volunteers spearheaded the building of the artificial ice surface. It was still an outdoor arena because they couldn’t afford to put a building over the ice surface. I can remember as a little girl helping tie the wires around the pipes that were being laid in the ground for the ice making. We were so proud of our Community and all the people that helped bring the rink to our little town. We didn’t need to rely on the weather anymore to be able to go skating. My brother and I skated most days of the week. He played hockey at that arena every year until he graduated in 1968. My dad started a girl’s hockey team so that I also was able to play hockey. I scored the first goal for our new team. We were an avid hockey family. Move to 1983 when my own son stared playing Mighty Mites at the age of 4. He spent every year playing in the Maryville arena until 1997 when he graduated. At that time he was a member of the Kimberley Dynamiter Jr. A hockey team and earned a scholarship to the Michigan Tech hockey team in the USA. Hockey was his everything in life and gave him the opportunity to have lifelong friends and show him what it means to be part of a team in life and the workplace. He is still a hockey player and will be officially an ‘oldtimer’ this year. Hockey has provided him fun and a healthy life style that is so important. My husband coached and was the president of Kimberley Minor hockey for many years. Move to 2011 and now my grandson is 4 years old and playing in the same Marysville arena and my son has been his coach for the past 3 years. My grandson is 6 years old now and his 4 year old brother has just joined the team and loves playing hockey. Without the Marysville arena, the ice time would just not be available for these children. My husband who is 62 is also playing oldtimer’s hockey at the Marysville arena along with other oldtimer teams that call the Marysville arena home. The health benefits for these men are something that we need to support. Without the Marysville arena the ice times that would be available for these men would just not be feasible. Since the closing of the Sullivan mine in Kimberley our community has been trying to forge on and attract young families to sustain the community. Without amenities like the Marysville arena that provide recreational opportunities, especially hockey, for young and old alike we will not be able to keep these valuable members in our community. Hockey gives our children a passion and direction in their lives and I hope you will accept our nomination of the Marysville arena for Kraft Hockeyville. Elva Keiver

Man stabbed inside vehicle in Cranbrook

Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

Dueck says winning the silver in the downhill last weekend was challenging and rewarding.

Dueck checks in From Page 1 Dueck says winning the silver in the downhill was challenging and incredibly rewarding at the same time. “My Sochi experience has been great so far; the venues are awesome and the overall energy here is bumping. The stands are practically sold out every day which makes for a super lively crowd, which is really fun to be able to perform for. “There’s a solid crew of people around the Canadian Team right now that is making it really easy for all of us to

be able to perform to our potential . I have to tip my hat to all the folks at Alpine Canada, Canadian Paralympic Committee and Own the Podium for giving us all the resources to be successful. “Which leads me to the exciting part of being able to perform my best, when it matters most. I won a silver medal in the downhill race, which was really challenging and incredibly rewarding at the same time. The Super G was going really well until I pulled a 360 two gates before the finish

line, oops. And we have a couple more races to go, which I am equally excited about.” As for Tuesday’s slalom run, Dueck says conditions were tough and it was a battle just to cross the finish line. “I fared well, all things considered.” Dueck will be enjoying some down time Wednesday before the busy race week picks up with the slalom on Thursday, followed by the Super G (combined) on Friday and GS on Saturday to wrap things up.

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

RCMP have arrested a 26-year-old man after another man was stabbed in Cranbrook on Friday, March 7. Police were called when a man was dropped off at East Kootenay Regional Hospital on Friday, suffering from serious stab wounds. The stabbing took place inside a vehicle, RCMP said, and the vic-


Police are also investigating an assault that took place earlier the same day behind the Sam Steele Hotel in downtown Cranbrook. The same two subjects were involved in the incident that occurred about 11:30 a.m. on March 7, along with a third male. “The victim and suspect are known to each other and police would like reassure the public these are not a random

acts,” said Cpl Newel. If you have any information about either of these two incidents or observed the subject being dropped at the hospital, please contact the General Investigation Section of the Cranbrook RCMP at 250 489-3471 or Crime Stoppers, 1-800-222TIPS (8477).

De Assumpcao trial delayed Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

A Marysville woman charged with murder over the March 2013 death of Jordon Lomsnes will be waiting longer for a trial. Claudia De Assumpcao, 38, has been charged with second degree murder and arson after Lomsnes, 47, died under suspicious circumstances on March 8,

2013 in Marysville. Last November, De Assumpcao’s lawyer, Buffy Blakley entered a guilty plea on her behalf and chose to have the case heard by a Supreme Court judge. On Monday, March 10, lawyers for counsel and defense were scheduled to set a date for that trial. However, De Assumpcao’s new lawyer, Marilyn Sanford, told

Justice Thomas Melnick via teleconference that she will be making an application to have the case transferred back to provincial court. That application will be heard in Cranbrook Supreme Court on April 10. De Assumpcao has been remanded in custody at Alouette Correctional Centre awaiting trial.

Run-off problems persist Townsman Staff

Efforts to contain the spring run-off are continuing around the Regional District this week. A 20-person Unit Crew from the Wildfire M a n a g e m e n t Branch continued to assist with sandbagging efforts, stockpiling almost 2,000 sandbags Monday at the gravel pit next to Cranbrook’s Public Works yard on Cobham Avenue in Cranbrook and another 1,500 in Fernie. The automatic sandbagger was moved to Fernie Monday afternoon and crews expect to have a few thousand sandbags filled and ready to be picked up by

tim was dropped off at the hospital at 2:52 p.m. on Friday. “Police worked throughout the weekend to identify a suspect and on Monday, March 10, he was arrested without incident,” said Cpl. Chris Newel. The 26-year-old man has been charged with aggravated assault and was scheduled to appear in Cranbrook Provincial Court on Tuesday, March 11.

anyone in the City of Fernie or Area A who needs them. The pick up location is the Mainroad Contracting yard on Dicken Road, which has 24 hour access. Members of the Jaffray Volunteer Fire Department assisted with pumping and diverting water last night at a residence in Jaffray as rapid melting started to cause some overland flooding. The Unit Crew assisted with sandbagging in Jaffray today en route to Fernie. The sand and sandbags are located at the Jaffray Pub and Sunrise Grill parking lot. There will also be sand and empty bags for residents to self fill should the supply of filled bags

get depleted. With the run-off conditions seeing little change and stockpiles of sandbags completed today in Fernie and Cranbrook, Emergency Management BC has recalled the Unit Crews and they will no longer be available to assist. “We are so grateful to the Wildfire Management Branch and the members of the Unit Crews who have been working long hours doing everything from filling sandbags by hand to placing sandbags from Gold Creek to Fernie and all points in between,” said RDEK Information Officer Loree Duczek. “This is hard, physical work and many

people have been able to access sandbags quickly under rapidly changing conditions this week thanks to their efforts.” Although the Unit Crews have been pulled out, there remains the need for sandbagging in the Jaffray area. “There is a lot of water starting to run in Jaffray and we would like to be ready if the forecasted warmer temperatures materialize this week and the water levels start to increase there,” added Duczek. The forecast is still calling for a mix of sun and cloud, light scattered showers and temperatures between 8 and 10 degrees above zero for the next few days.

Flume costs revealed From Page 1 Mayor Ron McRae says that some costs of the project have come in at, or under, budget, while others were more than anticipated. “The major contractor, CopCan, actually came in below price,” McRae said. “But there are challenges we face with unknown projects of this size. We were not able to accurately estimate the cost of rock. That added significant cost to the project.”

There have been no costs incurred in 2014 and a decision has not yet been made on whether to proceed with Phase 2 this construction season. Citizens of Kimberley approved the expenditure of $4.25 million for the flume project through the Alternate Approval Process

more, so there will be no pleas to Quebec to stay this time, no special offers to sweeten the Confederation. The “Rest of the United Kingdom” is already there: the English, in particular, seem distinctly unmoved by the prospect of Scottish independence. This may be because Scotland has much less of the UK’s population than Quebec has of Canada’s (one-tenth vs. one-fifth), and because Scotland is at the far end of Britain whereas Quebec is in the middle of Canada. So maybe it will only take two referendums in Scotland. They should pray that this is so, because the four-decade, three-referendum scenario is pretty grim. In Quebec, it caused the most spectacular case of “planning blight” in recent history. The perpetual uncertainty about Quebec’s political and economic future drove the corporate headquarters out (they moved to Toronto), and the immigrants and the investment went elsewhere. The population numbers in Canada’s two biggest provinces tell the story. In 1980, the year of the first referendum, there were 6.5 million people in Quebec and 8.5 million in Ontario, and the ratio had been steady for most of the century. There are now 8.2 million people in Quebec – and 13.4 million in Ontario. Montreal had always been Canada’s biggest city, but Toronto is now more than 50 percent bigger. Salmond must know that this is where he is taking Scotland. He presumably thinks it is worth it. Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist based in London.

Nitros put Thunder Cats on life support Kimberley wins 6-3 and needs one more victory to book a spot in the conference final TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Creston Valley Thunder Cats are officially on life support. Tyson Brouwer turned in a 35 save performance and Bryce Nielsen scored twice to lead the Kimberley Dynamiters to a dominating 6-3 win on Tuesday night, giving them a 3-1 series lead in the Eddie Mountain division final. Despite being outshot in all three periods, Brouwer was—by far— the best player on the ice for Kimberley, turning away shot after shot as Creston desperately tried to find their scoring touch. The highest-scoring team in the KIJHL during the regular season, the Thunder Cats have only tallied 10 goals in four games, while Kimberley overcame a tough start to the series and has found the back of the net 15 times over the same time span. With that in mind, the Nitros aren’t ready to start celebrating yet. “It’s not done till it’s done,” said Brouwer. “Creston is a really good team, they could easily come back, so we just need to go in there and finish the job, stick to the things we did tonight. “ The Dynamiters got some unfortunate news before the start of the game, with forward

Tyler Garcia getting suspended for two games due to an accumulation of checking to the head minors. Kimberley was also without Jason Richter and Andrew Miller due to illness. Creston notched the first goal, but the Nitros responded with a pair in the first period. The same pattern occurred in each of the following two frames, with the Thunder Cats getting only one goal, while the Dynamiters potted two. Colby Livingstone got the party started for Creston, beating his man down the wing and sliding the puck through the five hole after cutting into the middle in front of Brouwer. Kimberley seemed to have responded when a scrum formed in front of Creston goaltender Brock Lefebvre and the puck trickled across the line. However, the officials waved it off as the play had been whistled dead beforehand. But there was no denying the goal scored a dozen seconds later, when Nielsen redirected a bullet from Perpelitz into the net on the powerplay to even up the game. Just over a minute later, Perpelitz fed a streaking Eric Buckley down low in the Thunder Cats zone, who deftly stuffed the puck home at the side of the net for a 2-1 lead after 20 min-

All the Edmonton Oil Kings needed was one goal to edge out a 1-0 win over the Kootenay Ice on Tuesday night at Rexall Place. Scoreless after the opening period, Phoenix Coyotes first-rounder Henrik Samuelsson broke the deadlock 15 seconds into the middle frame to give the Oil Kings the lead. The two teams battled each other to a draw the rest of the period,

and kept each other off the scoreboard in the final frame. Kootenay head coach Ryan McGill wasn’t happy with a lack of effort from parts of his lineup, but praised the work of goaltender, Mackenzie Skapski, who made 29 saves to keep it a close game for the Ice. “I think we needed a few more players to show up offensively,” said McGill. “We can’t have the same guys every game trying to carry the team and we

SPORTS BRIEFS Dueck sitting in fifth place after weather postpones super-combined event

Kimberley sit-skier Josh Dueck is sitting in fifth place in the slalom portion of the super-combined at the Sochi Paralympics after weather delays have postponed the event till Thursday. Dueck ran the course in 0:59.93, just a second off the leader and still within striking distance of the podium. “The track is better than I expected it to be, given it’s been so sunny for the past couple of weeks, but it’s not slalom like we’re used to. It’s not feel-good; it’s really about survival.” said Dueck, who won silver in downhill on Saturday. “I pretty much gave up everything I knew about ski racing and went back to my roots in freestyle and just tried to find the best way to ski the snow and feel the terrain. It felt terrible coming down, but my time’s in the hunt and I feel like I can make up time in super-G, so I’m actually really happy with how today turned out.” Trevor Crawley

Perpelitz scored off the wing in the the second period, which prompted a change from Lefebvre to Kyle Michalovsky, the starter on Monday night who was lit up for four goals. The goaltending change didn’t matter; Dylan Sibbald beat his check and came in on a breakaway to go top cheddar and make it 4-1 at 6:35. “We have confidence going in,” said Perpelitz. “Just getting shots to the net and things are going in for us. We’re going in finishing our checks, too, giving us more

room to create more scoring opportunities, so we got to keep that up, going into Creston.” With just under five minutes to go in the period, the Thunder Cats answered back. Seth Schmidt wired a low shot home after finding some open space in the high slot. Leading 4-2 going into the third period, the Nitros kept the pressure up, with Nielsen getting a slick tip on a point shot from Jordan Busch. Brandon Becker also padded the lead in the latter half of the frame with a slap shot that went off the post

and in. The Thunder Cats pulled their goaltender while on the powerplay for a six-on-four advantage over the Nitros with 6:20 remaining in the game. Though Creston didn’t score on the powerplay, they did manage to get another one on the board with 3:29 left from Trevor Hanna. The series now shifts to Creston for Game Five on Thursday, where the Nitros will have the chance to wrap it up. Should Creston win, the Dynamiters will host Game Six on Friday night.

Ice shut out by royalty in Oil country TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor


didn’t have it. “We had some guys that were passengers tonight unfortunately, but our goaltender was excellent though, their goaltender was excel-

lent and we just needed more than our top line playing hard.” Kootenay went scoreless in three valuable chances on the man-advantage, but the Oil Kings were able to shut the door. “We got some chances on our last powerplay, but their goalie played well,” continued McGill. The loss keeps the Ice in fifth place with a three-point gap ahead of Swift Current, who will play the Blades on

Wednesday night for a chance to cut into that deficit. Kootenay, in turn, will be challenging the Rebels in Red Deer. “Especially this time of year when you’re going into the playoffs, we didn’t see second and third effort out of some guys that we needed to see,” said McGill, “and that’s unfortunate. We need to understand that we need to finish as high as we can going into the playoffs and not slip to the sixth spot.”

Curtis Stockton has picked up a national honour from the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association, which named him to the first All-Star team last week. The right side for the College of the Rockies Avalanche men’s volleyball team had previously been awarded the Pacwest men’s player of the year. Stockton reigned on top of the CCAA rankings for individual kills, leading with 402, with fellow Pacwest athlete Annrew McWilliam out of Douglas College with 361 in second place. Leading as team captain of the Avs, Stockton and his teammates captured a bronze medal at the Pacwest provincial championship at the end of February. Trevor Crawley

Blue Jays edge Verlander and the Tigers with a 3-2 win

LAKELAND, Fla. - Justin Verlander pitched onehit ball into the fourth inning of his spring debut for the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday, a 3-2, 10-inning loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. Verlander’s spring routine has been postponed by his recovery from core-muscle repair surgery on Jan. 9, and his first scheduled start was rained out last Thursday. The former MVP and Cy Young Award winner threw 52 pitches, giving up a first-inning single to Melky Cabrera and walking two in 3 2-3 innings. He had two strikeouts. Associated Press

ARIES (March 21-April 19) A hedonistic breeze floats through wherever you are. If handling a serious matter, you might have difficulty staying focused. Creativity spills over into all your thoughts, which eliminates boundaries and opens the doors for fun. Tonight: All smiles. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You could opt to stay home. You will express what you want, and others will listen. For now, you might just need some time off. Indulge in the mood of the moment. Lighten up a conversation that could be awkward. Tonight: Make it easy. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You’ll see what needs to happen between you and someone else. You could be so anxious for that to happen that you might make too many inquiries. Try to let go and get into the spirit of the day. You will be much happier if you do. Tonight: Let the chips fall where they may.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) You could be more willing to understand what is happening once you relax. Recognize that a problem will correct itself without your interference. In fact, the more attention you give to this matter, the more likely it is that it will backfire on you. Tonight: Midweek break. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You will be expressive, despite someone being very hard on you. You might wonder why you must do something a certain way. The unexpected could occur, and it could throw a happy opportunity your way. Tonight: On center stage, where you belong and love to be. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You know when you have gone too far. You might feel challenged and confused by a loved one. Your solution will be to focus on what you must do, and that will give you more stability. Walk away from a power play. Tonight: Say “yes” to living. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Emphasize what you want and why you want it. Your ability to


zero in on the basics will allow you to take care of necessities first. Know that you have more understanding than most signs. Realize what is going on with a friend who is close to your heart. Tonight: In weekend mode already. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You could feel pressured by a boss, a parent or a respected individual. You might agree with this person, but you’ll need to decide what to do on your own. You’ll be surprised by the positive response you receive, should you choose to open up. Tonight: Till the wee hours. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You’ll act spontaneously and get good results. Let your fiery spirit speak. You could be overly assertive with someone who is far more conservative and who also believes that he or she is far wiser than you are. Let it go. Avoid a fight, if you can. Tonight: Follow the music. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You might feel as if you have very little choice, as someone else who has a lot of support

seems to dominate the scene. You could choose to observe, but a partner will want to draw you out in order to have an important one-on-one chat. Tonight: A cozy dinner for two. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Others might insist on dominating right now. You are likely to get much more of what you desire if you keep communication open and stay close to your friends. You could be thinking some very negative thoughts, so try to turn them around. Tonight: Say “yes.” PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You could see a situation develop differently from how you might have expected it to. A friend or loved one could be unusually controlling and might cause you some distress. You have a lot to do, so focus your energy on getting it done. Tonight: Out late.

ANNIE’S MAILBOX by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: My husband and I have been married for more than 50 years and once had a very enjoyable and compatible sex life, even though my husband didn’t want any children and refused to discuss it. After 27 years of wedded bliss, my husband had major surgery. He developed erectile dysfunction and became afraid of dying. Our sex life ended. But he was depressed and began drinking heavily, especially when he retired early for health reasons. Recently, while going through some paperwork, I came across a handwritten note with a great deal of sexual innuendo, and it was not directed at me. This totally shocked me. The note was written about 10 years ago. I asked him to explain the note, and of course, he denied he wrote it and became very agitated, claiming he always has been faithful in our marriage. After being an understanding wife all of these years, I now question whether he can be trusted. What should I do? He will never go to a marriage counselor. -- Upset in Illinois Dear Upset: This note is 10 years old and doesn’t say very much. Your husband is not likely to admit to anything, and in fact, there may be nothing to confess. Either forgive his failings and concentrate on the good marriage you claim to have had, or get into counseling for yourself and decide what your next move is. We think the note is not evidence of a betrayal, and you should let it go. Dear Annie: My 50-year-old son was just divorced for the second time. I love both of his exes as friends, and they are nice women. But he told me that I am not to speak to them anymore. I never thought his divorcing his wives meant they divorced the rest of the family. I love my son, but I don’t like his demand. What is your advice? -- Nantucket Dear Nantucket: We dislike it when people issue demands to others about who their friends can be. Are there grandchildren involved? If so, inform your son that it is necessary to maintain a civil relationship with his exes for the sake of the children. Otherwise, determine what the consequences will be. If your son threatens to cut off contact with you if you communicate with his exes, you might choose to stop. Dear Annie: I’m writing about the letter from “Heartbroken,” whose fiance broke off their engagement after he discovered that she kissed another guy while drinking and dancing in a bar. Good for him. She is not ready to be married or in any type of committed relationship. She is selfish, disloyal and lacking in self-control. In bars and clubs, the atmosphere is highly sexual, and in my opinion, just going there is a form of cheating because you’re looking to flirt. My guess is she did more than just kiss this guy, but that was the only part her fiance found out about. She probably doesn’t feel obligated to be more honest than that. We have lost an understanding of what makes a true, loving relationship. It is built on trust, loyalty, sacrifice, kindness and a love that makes us want to protect our partner from hurt, a love that builds them up and gives them the confidence to be better. “Heartbroken’s” fiance saw the writing on the wall. If he isn’t enough for her in the honeymoon stage of their relationship, how will she behave in five or 10 years, when their lives have fallen into the daily grind that happens in all long-term relationships? What scares me the most is that she and so many others feel that what she did is no big deal. -- All About Respect Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

While you’re not looking, this is what’s happening to BC’s world renowned recycling program.

Well, lookie here. One minute you have a perfectly good Blue Box recycling program. The next, something new and rather questionable is being put in its place. And they thought they’d get away with it right under your nose, without telling you or asking your opinion. That’s definitely not democracy in action. The BC Government, elected by us to represent our best interests, has decided to offload the costs of recycling to big multi-national corporations. To implement this new plan, they’ve set up an association that doesn’t really seem to hold the environment, local jobs, or the municipalities that run the Blue Box program, close to its heart.

Perhaps that’s why some of our local elected officials are using the word “scam” to describe how the new program is being set up. It’s also perhaps why several of BC’s municipalities refuse to jump on board. That’s gotta tell you something. Now it’s your turn to let Premier Christy Clark know what you think. Contact her today to say that dismantling an already-working recycling program to replace it with something that few people think will be as good, is a bad idea.

What’s going on here?

Email Christy Clark at or call 250-387-1715. For more info, visit #RethinkItBC. This Message is brought to you by:
