Proudly serving Cranbrook and area since 1951

Local chosen for globe trotting challenge ARNE PETRYSHEN Townsman Staff

In a little over a week, three University of Calgary students will be headed across Europe using only cans of Red Bull and their wits to travel over 1,000 kilometres. Eric Termuende, from Cranbrook, along with teammates Conner Brown and Ben Cannon, are embarking on the Red Bull Can You Make It? challenge. The trio, calling themselves the Executive Team, will start in London and make their way to Berlin, stopping at checkpoints on the way. They have to make their way there using only the 24 cans of Red Bull they are provided and their own resourcefulness. Termuende spoke to the Townsman on Monday and said the three of them are quite excited and prepping for the 10day trip. “We’re just working on a social media push right now. We’re all working on getting classes finished and to fill time at the students’ union as well,” Termuende said.

Danielle hangs up her MasterChef apron Cranbrook’s MasterChef contestant has been eliminated, but her culinary career is just beginning


After an amazing run, clocking up win after win, all while maintaining her composure, Cranbrook’s MasterChef Canada contestant Danielle Cardozo has been eliminated from the CTV reality series. In the cook-off television show’s 10th episode, Danielle’s undoing was one of the toughest desserts ever: a Baked Alaska. With two other contestants also failing their at-

tempts, Danielle’s was the dish the judges chose to send her home. “That was seriously tough to watch,” she told the Townsman after the episode. The Monday, March 24 episode opens with the eight remaining contestants participating in a Team Challenge that requires two teams of four to man food trucks and serve the hungry hordes in Toronto. Danielle is on a team led by Eric Chong, alongside Kaila Klassen and

Julie Miguel. They decide to serve a meatball sub from their Italian food truck, against the blue team’s steak tacos from a Mexican food truck. Eric is in such a frenzy trying to run the operation that eventually Danielle just steps in to take control, worried that the lack of organization will be their undoing. Eric admits that Danielle is making crucial decisions and helping everyone stay calm – a role he should have been playing.

In fact, the red team is now so efficient that their line wears down while customers at the Mexican truck are waiting 25 minutes to be served. So Kaila goes out to poach customers from the line. Soon Pino Di Cerbo on the blue team returns the favour, stopping by tables where customers are eating Italian and convincing them to buy a taco, too.

Crisis lines answer the call Submit ted

What if you could change a life, or even save one, just by answering the phone? Would you? Your Interior Crisis Line Network (ICLN) is hoping you’ll say “yes.” Every 20 minutes someone calls the ICLN and is supported by a trained staff and volunteers and the number of calls are steadily increasing. The Interior Crisis Line Network is made up of five local crisis lines and was developed through the support of the Interior Health Authority and the First Nations Health Authority. It’s the first network of

its kind in North America to support all types of calls, and people across the Interior can reach out to the ICLN for a variety of reasons and needs. Calls range from requests for resources to short-term emotional support to suicide prevention and intervention. Regardless of the issue, by the end of the call the person receives support that truly makes a difference in their lives. In fact, the ICLN has been so responsive that calls have increased almost 20 per cent since last year. “Meeting the needs of more callers is great,” said Nancy Reid, Local Crisis Line Administrator, “because it means that callers know they can call one number and receive support. “But it also means that we are in need of volunteers now more than ever to ensure we have enough trained crisis line workers on the line to answer this increased need.” The ICLN is not just making a difference for

those who call in, but also for the staff and volunteers who answer the calls. “The training not only prepared me to support people on the lines, but it’s made a big difference in my own life too. I’m better at handling my own stress, it has helped in my job search and in supporting my friends and family,” shares one volunteer. March 17, 2014 was the beginning of Crisis Line Awareness Week and you are welcome to reach out to your local crisis line office to find out more about how you can make a difference as a volunteer or call the Interior Crisis Line Network if you are in need of support. The Interior Crisis Line Network is available 24/7/365 by calling 1-888-353-CARE (2273) from anywhere in the Interior Region. To find out more about volunteering, contact Volunteer Kootenays, 250-426-8019, Lori Stolson; or nreid@

Three students of Liela Cooper were in Kamloops last weekend as competitors in the Western Canadian Open Championships. It was a two-day competition with a Highland Championship on the first day and a Premiership Championship (National Dances) on day two. Dancers from B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and Washington took part in this huge event. Our local dancers did incredibly well. On the first day with the Highland Championships, Kasey and Erin Hawkins both won medals in their respective age classes and little sister Victoria was first runner-up in her class of 9 years and under. Day two brought more excitement when Victoria won the Premiership Championship and her sisters both were third runners-up in their classes: Erin 14 years to under 16; and Kasey 16 years to under 18. Pictured, left to right: Liela Cooper, Erin, Victoria, and Kasey Hawkins.

Projects support social wellbeing in the Columbia Basin Submit ted

3 DAYS ONLY! MARCH 27, 28, 29

901 Baker Street, Cranbrook • 250-426-2717

Thirty-two projects that support social well-being have been approved to receive nearly $1 million in funding from Columbia Basin Trust’s Social Grants Program. “Our selection committee approved a diverse range of projects from a strong showing of applications during our annual intake,” said Sabrina Curtis, director of Sector Initiatives. “These projects will continue to build and strengthen the social sector in our region.” One of the successful recipients is the Golden Food Bank Society. Its project involves a food recovery program for the Golden area.  “In this initial stage, we hope to help minimize waste while increasing our supply of food for hampers,” said Melanie Myers, executive director. “We also hope to create a more sustainable food bank model that other groups can use in the future.” The Elkford Women’s Task Force Society will offer a program for Elk Valley children aged

three to five years, which will use play and parent participation to promote positive self-image, physical activity and healthy eating. “The Healthy Start program will present physical-based education in a fun and exciting way,” said Jennifer Cherney, Elkford Early Childhood Development coordinator. “It will give families ideas of how to make physical activity fun at home, while encouraging children to have positive self-esteem and make healthy eating choices, in hopes of helping reduce childhood obesity. It will also prepare children for kindergarten.” Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cranbrook will pilot the expansion of its program into Nelson and Castlegar.  “After a year of development work we are thrilled to be able to offer our In School Mentoring programs in Castlegar and Nelson in 2014,” said Dana Osiowy, executive director. “We know about the long-term benefits to our children when they have a mentor and having a profession-

ally trained and supported mentoring team in the West Kootenay will mean those benefits will be felt throughout the communities.” The St. Mary’s Indian Band project aims to support Band Elders to connect with their community.  “Our Sharing Wisdom project focuses on the socialization and well-being for our community. This grant will help to bring elders together within the nation and mentor cultural and traditional teachings,” said Cindy Wales, RN Community Health representative. “By sharing their wisdom, elders will feel valued and become more active within the community.” The Social Grants Program Selection Committee makes the granting decisions. This volunteer group of Basin residents includes individuals who have experience and expertise in the social sector, and individuals who have broader community development experience.  For more information about the program, visit

Students race with Red Bull cans as currency Continued from page 1

“We’re trying to get all the work completed to be able to take off for 10 days and literally run across Europe. So it should be exciting for sure. It’s nice to have a lot of school support as well and the university has jumped on our backs to kind of help us out.” The trio are all executives of the Students’ Union at the University of Calgary. The contest came to their attention through a Red Bull representative and social media. “We thought we may as well send an application in and see what happens,” he said. “The application was a three paragraph description of who you are, what you’ve done and what you would do should you make it. Then a one minute video. Our video actually turned out to be quite successful and I think that was the tipping point as to how we got selected.” This is the second year of the competition;


Ben Cannon, Eric Termuende and Conner Brown (pictured, left to right) will be competing in Red Bull Can You Make It? Beginning April 4, the trio will be making their way across Europe, from London to Berlin using only cans of energy drink as currency. last year it was in New Zealand. There are two other teams from Canada, one from Quebec and one

from Vancouver. The 100 teams have different starting points across Europe. Personal phones and wallets are

not allowed. Each team gets one phone which is limited to contacting the contest headquarters and updating social

media. “There are various checkpoints along the way. They haven’t told us where we’ll be going

yet,” he said. “I anticipate Paris or down to southern Europe, perhaps Italy and then up through Austria as well. The adventure is the most exciting part, to see how successful we can be using just cans of Red Bull. I see it as we’ve already won by getting a chance to have an experience like this. Ideally we want to market ourselves as Canada’s team and get a lot of support that way and then have our journey well documented here.” A huge party will be waiting for all the teams that make it to Berlin, and the winning team gets to attend a Red Bull event of their choice, anywhere in the world. Termuende said it could be anything from a surfing competition in Australia or Crashed Ice in Finland. “It should be pretty exciting. We’re currently top 10 here, and that’s just with social media support,” he said, as Facebook likes for the team are a part of the scoring. “Any support

we get from Cranbrook is obviously very much appreciated on the journey across Europe for sure.” Termuende said they foresee challenges in the nature of the competition, but are prepared to go the distance. “Weather could prove very difficult, as well as transportation,” he said. “At the end of the day, if we have to sleep outside or we have to do something crazy like that, we’re willing to, but when it comes to getting across the English Channel or when it comes to getting over the Alps or whatever it may be, I think a can of Red Bull may be difficult in doing that.” The competition kicks off Friday, April 4.

CFUW bursaries support nursing students Submit ted

The Canadian Federation of University Women Cranbrook Club is very pleased to donate two more bursaries to the College of the Rockies. Judie Blakley, the Financial and Scholarship Committee Chair, presented Lois Murray of the College of the Rockies a cheque for two $500 bursaries to the Licensed Practical Nursing Program for the year 2014-2015. The club is using some of the funds raised from its annual Artisan Bazaar held at the Cranbrook Golf Course in November. The Practical Nursing Course at the College of the Rockies is a two-year program. The eligibility requirements for one of these two bursaries will be presented to a mature female student (over 19 years of age) who is enrolled in fulltime studies at the College of the Rockies Prac-

tical Nursing Program and continuing to a second year. The tuition for this course has increased to $5,000 which adds burden to the returning students. Lois Murray said the college is very pleased to get this financial help from the CFUW Cranbrook club at this time. Students will be selected using the criteria based on a combination of demonstrated financial need and academic achievement. “This is the second consecutive year the club has been able to help two East Kootenay women COTR students,” said Cathryn Henley, President of the CFUW Cranbrook Club. “The monies are raised through the sale of tables at the annual Artisan Bazaar which features local crafters and artists of all kinds. Funds spent there by the crafters are reinvested in the East Kootenay

to the benefit of our community,” she added. “We are continuing

our mission of education at all levels. We support early childhood education as well as

post-secondary in the East Kootenay,” said Henley. If you would like to

It’s an effective move; in one of the closest team challenges yet, the blue team wins by only three dishes. The red team is sent into another elimination challenge; Danielle’s third. The judges tell Eric, Kaila, Julie and Danielle that no one will be saved from this challenge, which they admit is the toughest yet. They drop the hint that they will be making a dessert named after the coldest American state. Danielle’s face says it all: it’s Baked Alaska-a sponge cake, topped with ice cream, the whole thing wrapped in meringue and somehow baked without the ice cream melting. Danielle ran Crumbs Cakery in Cranbrook and the Elk Valley with her sister, who has since taken over the business. She was horrified that a cake led to her demise. “The first person I called when I got my cell phone back from MasterChef Canada was my sister, who I started Crumbs Cakery with almost three years ago. I confided in her how I went home. She of course laughed and joked, “Of course you did! How did that happen?!” When I explained that it was a Baked Alaska, she granted me sisterly amnesty.” While at first it seems Danielle will sail through this challenge


A tense Danielle Cardozo watches to see if her second sponge is going to save her from elimination. as she has in the pastshe’s the only cook who even knows what a Baked Alaska is-her sponge cake inexplicably fails. The first cake to come out of the oven is too moist, so Danielle ditches it and somehow finds the time to bake another. Unbelievably, it’s just as bad. She tells the camera that she’s definitely worried. But she nails the ice cream and the meringue and gets the dish into the oven with time to spare. It gives her a little bit of hope. Meanwhile, Julie Miguel failed to listen to

judge Michael Bonacini’s advice and has cooked a sponge with clumps of uncooked flour in it. Kaila’s sponge is more fudge than cake, and she resorts to blow-torching the meringue when she runs out of time to bake it. But when the judges cut into Danielle’s Baked Alaska, the gooey cake has failed to insulate the ice cream in the oven, and it melts. Somehow, Julie and Kaila are saved, and it’s Danielle who is shown the door. “Your three kids back in Cranbrook must be

very proud of you because their mother is a force to be reckoned with,” Bonacini tells Danielle. Oh gee, where are the tissues? Danielle gives parting words of advice to the camera: “If you want something, work for it. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something.” Danielle spent Tuesday in Toronto making the rounds of national TV and radio talk shows. But she did have time to share this message with Cranbrook. “My journey ends at Top 8. I want to thank everyone for their sup-

port. The journey has been amazing,” she told the Townsman. “It’s been so incredibly exciting to have the community behind me. I’ve loved the gatherings at the Heid Out! I wish I could have been there tonight. “I mean it when I say the end of the show was just the beginning of my opportunity. This is not the last Cranbrook will be hearing of me in the culinary industry.” Stay tuned to the Townsman in coming days as we feature everything Danielle has been up to since filming MasterChef Canada.

Campaign combats hate crime Townsman Staff

The B.C. government has launched a campaign to raise awareness about online hate crime. The Know Hate campaign-available in print, social media, television, radio and transit ads-will run for six weeks in communities throughout British Columbia. This resource-available at information for the public about what constitutes a hate crime, reporting information and links to resources for victims. “The Know Hate campaign and resource will help educate people about hate crime-how to recognize it and how to report it. As Canada’s most ethnically diverse province, B.C.

benefits greatly from its diverse population. There are still people who lack the openness to accept different beliefs, backgrounds or lifestyle choices and this sometimes lead to hate. Hate crimes are not acceptable,” said Teresa Wat, Minister of International Trade and Minister Responsible for the Asia Pacific Strategy and Multiculturalism. A hate crime is defined as a criminal offence motivated by hate towards an identifiable group. According to Statistics Canada (2011 report), the primary motive of over half (52 per cent) of all incidents of hate crime in Canada is race or ethnicity. The second-highest motivation is religion (25 per cent). “Our police forces reflect and support the rich diversity

of our population. The public can play an important role in police efforts to curb hate crime and help hold those who perpetuate it to account. This campaign will help more British Columbians to recognize, report and reduce hate crimes, which can detract in profound ways from people’s sense of safety and security,” said Suzanne Anton, Attorney General and Minister of Justice. The RCMP is supporting the initiative. “The RCMP fully supports this online resource centre and any other forum in which the public can learn more about hate crime and how to report it to police,” said Chief Superintendent Jim Gresham, Officer in Charge of BC RCMP Major Crime Section. “This is one

method for us to spread the word that hate crimes are not tolerated in our communities. The police throughout British Columbia take these matters seriously by conducting thorough investigations and action will be taken against the offenders.” Communities in British Columbia are increasingly culturally, ethnically and linguistically diverse with immigrants now accounting for approximately 27 per cent of our population and an additional five per cent comprised of indigenous Aboriginal populations. The B.C. Hate Crime Team was created in 1996 with a mandate to ensure the effective identification, investigation and prosecution of crimes motivated by hate.

”Always go to the bathroom when you have the chance.” —King George V. “All this progress is marvellous … now if only it would stop!”—Mayor Allen Lamport.


n another fruitless attempt to be a good citizen and not waste precious water, I purchased yet another lowflow toilet and I am already ruing the day. The one I—with the help of my lusty son—installed last year is a magnificent edifice in itself yet, to my dismay, it doesn’t actually work the way it is supposed to. In order to completely clear the commode of even a minimal amount of detritus, one is forced to flush several times. Naturally, I have had words with the store that sold me that masterpiece of engineering as well as with the manufacturer, to no avail. According to them, my plumbing might not be up to scratch. I took offence at those remarks because, although I might be old, decrepit even, my plumbing is in excellent shape, thank you. The muscles on my arm and hands are in great shape too, due to the exercise I get from constant flushing. More recently, I had cause—and misgivings—to install another low-flow latrine only to find out that my life is becoming

bogged down in fights with the flushers on that new bog. There are two of them on the top of the lavatory but, no matter which of them one elects to thrust downward, the result is less than satisfactory. Even a single sheet of T.P. remains like Columbus’ Santa Maria, after a storm, still floating serenely on the surface. Over the past few weeks I have cordially invited several practical and intelligent men to have a quick peek at my johns and possibly point out what might be the cure to my privy dilemma but, in every case they have flushed, flushed again, liftPeter ed off the top and peered Warland inside but not offered one helpful suggestion. I, in my turn, have thrown buckets of water down the potties and demonstrated that my plumbing is in good order, but still there has been no brilliant idea come to life. Let me see; I’ve made good use of a plunger, scratched the porcelain with a metal snake, floated C.L.R. throughout the (non) workings of the W.C., hauled in hundreds of metres of garden hose, hooked it up and fired litres of water through everything, all to no avail, no royal flush. In an idiotic moment of frustration, I even considered using the vacuum cleaner to unclog things but caution prevailed.


Like any other true savant researcher I went to Google to seek the cure for my latrine problems and, after staring google-eyed at the screen for what seemed like hours, I spotted what appeared to be a remedy for my problems. I followed the instructions carefully; I poured about a litre of dish-washing soap into the bowl, added a kettle-full of hot water and then waited like an ancient, optimistic alchemist for a miraculous result. An hour later, I ventured into the rest room with bated breath—because of the suspense only—I flushed and—abracadabra—it worked; it actually flushed properly, a perfect counter-clockwise swirl of water disappeared from view . Unfortunately, a half hour later, when nature called, the crapper was back to its recalcitrant self. If I had been bigger, stronger and much, much younger, I would have hauled that misbegotten comfort station out of the house and tossed it willy-nilly into the street, head first. Come to think of it, I think I need my own head looking at because, unlike the ill-fated Napoleon, I have met my Waterloo at the loo and I sometimes wonder if that giant virus that some idiot revived after digging it out of the Siberian permafrost might not be nesting snuggly in some sewer pipe that takes the waste from my porcelain thrones, just under my house.

Playoff update from around the WHL C ANADIAN PRESS


4 OT 3

KENT, Wash. - Mathew Barzal scored 3:47 into overtime as the Seattle Thunderbirds downed the visiting Everett Silvertips 4-3 on Tuesday in Western Hockey League playoff action. Scott Eansor had a pair of goals in regulation for the Thunderbirds, who lead the first-round matchup 3-0, and Branden Troock added a single goal. Patrick Bajkov scored twice for the Silvertips, Mirco Mueller had a goal and an assist and Manraj Hayer assisted on all three of his club’s goals. Taran Kozun made 28 saves for Seattle while Everett’s Austin Lotz turned away 25-of-29 shots in a losing cause. The Thunderbirds can clinch the series on Friday when the Silvertips host Game 4. OIL KINGS RAIDERS


Kootenay Ice forward Luke Philp (right) is all smiles after scoring the opening goal in a 5-4 win over the Calgary Hitmen on Tuesday night at Western Financial Place.

Ice edge out 5-4 win to even series Jaedon Descheneau scores with 51 seconds left in the game to lift Kootenay over Calgary TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

In the end, the Kootenay Ice simply outscored the Calgary Hitmen. Indeed, it took till the final minute for Ice sniper Jaedon Descheneau to pot the game winner to lift his team to a 5-4 final and even up the series at two games apiece. An odd-man rush into the Calgary zone with teammate Zach Franko made it happen. “I just looked up to see what options I had,” said Descheneau. “I saw Franks driving the net and we [had] talked about finding a lane to get pucks to the net and I moved to the middle and it created something for me and I put it on net and luckily it went in.” WHL playoff action now shifts to Calgary for Game Five on Thursday. It was similar to Monday’s game, as the goals piled up throughout the first two periods. The two teams actually held each other off the scoreboard for most of the final frame, until Descheneau’s game win-

ner with less than 60 seconds left on the clock. Kootenay had the edge after the first 20 minutes, but Calgary came back and took a brief lead before the Ice knotted it again after 40 minutes of play. Skapski had another tough night and was pulled in the middle period after allowing his fourth goal in 18 shots. Wyatt Hoflin played out the rest of the game and was unbeaten in 20 shots. Hoflin also played for just under six minutes on Monday night in Game Three, replacing Skapski in the second frame to play out the remainder of the period. “I got a taste of it yesterday—that probably helped,” said Hoflin. “Made a big save yesterday, so my confidence was up. “Today, I got in there and made a couple saves...In the third, I just wanted to be solid, just play shutdown hockey and that’s what I did.” Descheneau praised the younger backup for his work in the crease. “Last game he played

well too, before Skap came [back] in,” Descheneau said. “We got confidence in both our goalies. They’re tremendously talented goalies and whoever plays is going to play well for us. “Hoff stepped in for us today and played well.”

“In the third, I just wanted to be solid, just play shutdown hockey and that’s what I did.” Wyatt Hoflin Instead of trading goals, the Ice built up a lead this time, enough to hold a one-goal edge after 20 minutes. Austin Vetterl got the first play started driving to the net on the backhand with Luke Phip picking up a loose puck and roofing it at 3:02. Sam Reinhart doubled the lead three minutes later, somehow finding a hole through Hitmen goaltender Chris Driedger on a sharp-angle shot. Jake Virtanen replied for Calgary just after the

halfway mark, beating Skapski from inside the face-off circle. However, Kootenay restored the two-goal lead when Franko caught Driedger on his stomach and snapped a high shot home for Kootenay’s only powerplay goal. The Hitmen responded two minutes later as Ben Thomas snuck in from the point and ripped a shot bar down to make it a onegoal game after 20 minutes. In the second period, Greg Chase took advantage of a Kootenay turnover to even up the score. Calgary took their first lead three minutes later on a shorthanded goal from Pavel Padakin, which got Skapski pulled from the crease. Kootenay knotted the game back up roughly a minute after Padakin’s goal, with Levi Cable crashing the net and shovelling an uncovered puck across the goal line with his body. Though the play went to review, it stood as a good goal. The Ice had a glorious chance to pull

ahead in the third period with 1:43 of time with a two-man advantage, but the Hitmen were able to make the kill. Hoflin also made some big stops, notably on a chance from Virtanen, who nearly stuffed in a wraparound. The Kootenay goaltender also was able to shake off a big collision after a Calgary forward drove to the crease off a rush down the wing. NOTES: Kootenay Ice defenceman Landon Cross left the game in the second period and didn’t return. Linden Penner, fresh off a twogame suspension for a cross-check to the face of Ice forward Zach McPhee, was given a two-minute boarding minor on the play. With his game winning goal and an assist, Descheneau is now leading the WHL playoff scoring race at 10 points, followed by Sam Reinhart in second place. Kootenay will host Game Six on Saturday night at Western Financial Place. Tickets are on sale this week, and the box office will open at 10 a.m. on game day.

HOROSCOPES by Jacqueline Bigar

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You’ll feel optimistic about a situation, yet you might not be sure as to which direction you should head in. The unexpected tosses a new factor into the mix, which you’ll feel is a good thing. Go with the flow and the moment. All’s well that ends well. Tonight: Hang out. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Tension builds as you set out to deal with many different options. Is it possible that you are receiving too much good news in your life? You could be overwhelmed by all the opportunities coming your way. Trust in your ability to make the right choice. Tonight: A late dinner. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You could be overwhelmed by what is happening, yet you will remain positive. You will make the correct choice, and financial gain will be the incentive that guides you. An offer from a friend could throw off your plans. Tonight: Try something spontaneous.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) You have more to offer someone than you realize. The way this person approaches you at the present time might clue you in. Learning to establish suitable boundaries could be a very positive step. Tonight: Listen to what someone whispers in your ear. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Defer to others, as you likely won’t have much choice anyway. Someone might want to demonstrate his or her worth. Do not interfere. Your ability to get past a problem will allow you to have more bounce in your step. Tonight: Allow more flex. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Your ability to enjoy your work makes many other signs either jealous or worried about you. In either case, use that ability to clear as much as you can off your plate. A meeting with a friend could push you to complete even more. Tonight: Consider taking Friday off. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You know which path is the


right one for you to follow, but perhaps you are feeling anxious about taking the first step. Be careful not to push someone too hard, as he or she might decide to say “enough” and head for the hills! Tonight: Add more fun to the moment. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Your ability to visualize what you desire and to do what you feel is necessary will be clear. It will take action to proceed in the right direction. Ask yourself whether there is any real obstacle here. Tonight: Home feels like your castle. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You see life with greater clarity and openness. How you handle a personal matter could change, as you seem to be establishing who you are on a new level. Maintain a sense of humor when a partner teases you a bit about your new attitude. Tonight: Visit and catch up on news. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You could be taken aback by an opportunity to see a loved one in a new light. This person

suddenly might be so cheerful that you won’t know which way to head. Try to catch some of his or her optimism if you can! Tonight: Treat a friend to dinner. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You seem to be on cruise control no matter what you do. Move important matters along quickly, as you don’t often have extra free time, like you do now. Some of you just might decide to do your taxes! Tonight: Make sure that you choose an activity you enjoy. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You are a sign that experiences many intuitive hunches. Right now, you could be acting on an emotional level, especially around a child or new friend. The odds are that you will land well. Agitate less, and act more often. Tonight: Tap into your creativity. BORN TODAY Singer Diana Ross (1944), former U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Sandra Day O’Connor (1930), playwright Tennessee Williams (1911)

ANNIE’S MAILBOX by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I am a young single mom. The father and I are not together. I am lonely at times without a man in my life, but I don’t know how to approach men and have no idea how to bring up the fact that I have a son. I promised myself that I would not bring a guy into my son’s life until I’ve been seeing him for at least a year and the relationship is serious. In the meantime, I feel awkward about the situation and don’t know how to behave. Any suggestions? -- S. Dear S.: You are smart not to bring random men into your child’s life, but please don’t be in a hurry to get attached. It’s more important that you devote some time to yourself, figuring out what you need and want in life. Let your friends and family members know you are interested in meeting people. Get involved in activities that will allow you to become friendly with others in pressure-free circumstances -- through work, church, community projects, volunteer work, choirs, theater groups, civic organizations, political groups, etc. Also, consider joining Parents Without Partners (parentswithoutpartners. org). Doing interesting things will make you more interesting to be around. Female friends can introduce you to their single male friends or relatives. And, as you get to know others, the fact that you have a child will come up naturally. Dear Annie: I am frequently amazed by how many people fail to realize the unnecessary but real danger they put themselves in by not knowing a simple rule that I clearly remember learning in third grade: If you ride a bicycle on a road, stay on the right side to flow with traffic. If you are walking on a road, stay on the left side, facing traffic. This week, I saw two women walking on the right side of a two-lane highway with their backs to speeding traffic. I pulled over and explained to them that they were one distracted driver away from a coroner. They never would have seen it coming. I once saw three women with baby carriages walking abreast the same way. If they are facing traffic, they can move over if a driver doesn’t seem to be giving them enough room. And they should get off the road anyway. Likewise, bicyclists coming directly at oncoming traffic leave a driver no opportunity to slow down until it is safe to go around. If you print this, I believe a lot of people will recognize themselves and make this simple lifesaving adjustment. -- Concerned for the Clueless in N.Y. Dear N.Y.: Bicyclists must obey all traffic laws, which means they need to face the same direction as the traffic. Pedestrians should face the opposite way so they can see what’s coming toward them and get out of the way. Needless to say, no one should walk on a roadway unless absolutely necessary. Let’s hope your simple reminder saves a life or two. Thank you. Dear Annie: “Dry in California” wanted to know how to deal with party hosts who insist on pouring her a drink. I’d like to give a tip to those party hosts and suggest a practice that I always use for informal dinners, as well as bigger parties. I offer guests “something to drink” and then suggest (in this order) juice, soda, tonic water, wine, beer and harder stuff. Some of our friends do not drink alcohol, and a few are recovering alcoholics. One of the juice drinkers always specifies that his drink be served in a lovely wine glass so no one will question why he’s “not drinking.” Since these friends have continued visiting us for years and enjoying our parties, I assume this strategy works. -- Party Girl in Vermont Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
