Council approves development permit and variances for new arena

Council approved the development permit and variances for the proposed arena development project, the West Fraser Centre. The new 1,300-seat West Fraser Centre will be placed on a new site that will consolidate five parcels of land and a section of roadway and will include a new 73-space parking lot. Two previous studies indicate that the proposed 73-space parking lot, combined with surrounding public offsite parking and private parking sites, is sufficient parking for this proposed arena development. Variances were granted to

allow for required building setbacks and a provision for off-street parking spaces. An encroachment agreement will be required to allow the front entrance way of the West Fraser Centre to encroach over the building’s front lot line. Council approved entering into a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure that includes a provision where major events held on this site should not occur during street peak hours and should the event occur during street peak hours, the City would require

event organizers to arrange for traffic control provisions to restrict certain traffic movement. Council approved the City’s Public Works crews to relocate the City’s utility mainlines for the new West Fraser Centre, rather than a general contractor, as a means to save money and time on this project. The building footprint for the West Fraser Centre is over the City’s existing water, sewer and stormwater mainlines. Public works will move these utilities and prepare the building site at an estimated cost of $294,460 which is within the budget set for this portion of the project

and will be recovered from the North Cariboo Recreation and Parks budget. The majority of this project is scheduled to start October/November 2015 before the ground freezes; with the final installation of the sanitary sewer line expected to be completed in April 2016 once the ground has thawed.

cil. This proposed project has not been included in the 2015 budget and has a cost estimate of $16,000.  Council is scheduled to meet with President Henry Reiser of the College of New Caledonia to discuss the College’s pay-parking initiative, and possible educational opportunities, at the community’s North Cariboo Community Campus.  This meeting is open to the public and is scheduled for 5 p.m. on Sept. 28 at City Hall in Council Chambers.

Proposed Group Day Care – Intervention Services

for Autism

Council approved First and Second Bylaw readings of Bylaw 1775 that would permit the use of a proposed Group Day Care at 1341 Pentland Crescent. This zone amendment application is for the use of a Group Day Care that would allow intervention services for children and youth with an autism diagnosis.  The proposal is to use the premises exclusively for the intervention services with no residential use.  The Public Hearing Date has been set for Monday, Oct. 5 at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall inside Council Chambers.

Northern Health encourages immunization after outbreak

A pertussis (whooping cough) outbreak has been declared by local health authorities in northern Alberta and in parts of Saskatchewan. As we are seeing an expected seasonal increase of pertussis in northern B.C., Northern Health recommends residents ensure they are up to date for routine immunizations, including pertussis.  You may have heard lots of conversation in the media lately about vaccine preventable diseases such as measles, mumps, and whooping cough (pertussis) cases. Fortunately, due to vaccination most of us have never seen these diseases and their devastating

effects. This is because vaccines have been very effective in helping control the spread of these diseases. Vaccines have saved more lives in Canada than any other medical intervention in the past 50 years.  In reality these diseases haven’t disappeared and if immunization rates drop or we stop immunizing the diseases will come back.  In many cases these diseases are just a plane ride away. For example in 2014, the Fraser Valley experienced a measles outbreak of over 400 cases. The outbreak was linked to a family returning from a trip overseas where a child was infected with measles.

Baker Creek Society welcomes new member The Baker Creek Enhancement Society – Nature Education and Resource Centre (NERC) would like to welcome our newest member! Her name is Shelly and she is 30 years young. Shelly is a Red-eared Slider. Red-eared Sliders are not a native species to BC. They have been introduced to BC and are known as an invasive species. Red-eared Sliders look similar to one of BC’s Native species, the Western Painted Turtle. What is the distinguishing feature that makes it possible to tell the two different species apart? You guessed it, the red “ears”. We are pleased to have Shelly at the Nature Centre with us as she is a valuable educational asset. We welcome everyone to come into the Nature Centre, Located in West Fraser Timber Park, to say hello to our newest member. Staff at NERC would just like to remind people that if you have a pet that you no longer want, or can no longer take care of, to make sure that it is properly re-homed and that it does not get released into the wild. As doing so can disrupt the natural balance of the aquatic ecosystem, and can damage native turtle and amphibian populations. Feel free to visit the Nature Centre or contact us with any questions you may have - bces@telus.net.

RUNNING Shoes

As we are seeing an expected seasonal increase of pertussis in northern B.C., Northern Health recommends residents ensure they are up to date for routine immunizations, including pertussis. At any age, vaccination provides long lasting, effective protection against disease.  Immunizations don’t just protect you; they protect everyone around you too. Certain groups of people are unable

to be immunized because they are too young or they may not be able to receive vaccinations due to illness or a weakened immune system. Some vaccines work by creating “herd immunity,” which is when most people in a community have received a vaccine for a particular disease, the chance of an outbreak of that disease is greatly reduced. Getting vaccinated helps prevent the spread of these diseases to your friends and loved ones. Check out http:// immunizebc.ca/ to get up to date information on diseases, vaccines, and schedules and to find an immunization clinic near you.

Fruit gleaning program kicks off

Quesnel’s WildSafeBC program will be partnering with other local volunteer groups and businesses to carry out a Fruit Gleaning Program within the City of Quesnel to remove all surplus fruit or fruit that residents are unable to utilize or dispose of. Of note, WildSafeBC will be participating in Culture Days Saturday, September 26, 2015 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for year-end fruit picking and clean up. Specifically, fruit gleaning pertains to the removal of all types of fruit to prevent attracting wildlife (i.e. bears, deer, etc.) which in turn will keep the

community safe and protect wildlife well-being. Fruit that is of good enough quality for use will be separated and distributed to local aid organizations.  The remainder will be disposed of at local agricultural operations or safely disposed of at the local landfill. City residents with surplus fruit or those who wish to volunteer can contact Lita at WildSafeBC at 250-992-5743 or by email at Quesnel@wildsafebc. com to arrange for disposal of surplus fruit.

Retail, real estate keep B.C. in black TOM FLETCHER Black Press The B.C. government is on track for a surplus of $277 million for the fiscal year ending next spring, despite a costly forest fire season and a continued decline in revenues from natural gas and other resource revenues. Finance Minister Mike de Jong released results from the first quarter of the year Tuesday, showing the surplus down $7 million from the budget forecasts made in February. It showed

revenues higher than expected from income taxes and property transfer tax, as well as continued rapid growth in retail sales and sales tax revenues. Government spending is now forecast to be $381 million more than the budget, with costs of this year’s forest fire season above $300 million. That’s more than last year, but still below the total for 2009 and B.C.’s worst fire year, 2003. With similar surpluses expected for the next two years, de Jong said the

government has room for some “modest” spending increases on programs. But the main emphasis remains paying down operating debt left from the deficit years that followed the financial crisis of 2008. De Jong said the current trend would see operating debt paid off by 201920, for the first time since the 1970s. Capital debt for major construction continues to grow, but not as quickly as the size of the economy. The B.C. economy

continues to add employment, but less than one half of one per cent per year. NDP finance critic Carole James said manufacturing and forestry are struggling while the B.C. Liberal government maintains its focus on natural gas exports. “We’re almost at the four-year mark for the premier’s jobs plan, and here we are, continuing to see less than half of the number they predicted in terms of job growth,” James said.

The opposition has focused on the government’s reduced spending on postsecondary education, and charging adults $550 per credit for high school courses they take after graduation, in order to qualify for further studies. “Now’s the time that we should be providing support for people who want to retrain, who want to go back to school, who want to look for for those job opportunities,” James said.

Terry Fox facts British Columbia names a 2,639-metre peak in the Rocky Mountains, Mount Terry Fox. An 83-km section of the Trans-Canada Highway, between Thunder Bay and Nipigon is renamed the Terry Fox Courage Highway. The Canadian Government creates a $5-million endowment fund named the Terry Fox Humanitarian Award to provide scholarships each year in honour of Terry Fox. The award is presented to students who demonstrate the highest ideals and qualities of citizenship and humanitarian service. Quesnel’s Terry Fox Run is Sept. 20, registration at 9 a.m., run begins at 10 a.m. in LeBourdais Park.

Crash the party

N

ews earlier this week that Green Party of Canada leader Elizabeth May would use Twitter to participate, in real time, in yesterday’s federal leaders debate on the economy – an event she wasn’t invited to – got us thinking about how technology has drastically changed the way people communicate. Using various forms of social media for political reasons is only one way people have used these and other tools to reach the masses. We’ve seen charitable organizations undertake fundraising campaigns to tap into the multitudes of people online at any given time. In a similar vein, individuals raising money for all manner of ventures, both business and personal, have achieved success through crowdfunding. Both of those examples illustrate a broadening of the conversation around whatever cause for which the funds are being raised. From a news perspective, social media has given us a larger window on the world, as people post alternative-sourced stories rather than solely relying on our traditional outlets. On a more personal level, students overseas are easily able to take university level courses, thus participating in a global learning environment. Drilling down further, people have been using such software as Facetime on iPhones, or Skype through their computers or phones – military families are frequent users – to bridge the miles. May’s example is the latest to show how technology has allowed us all to “crash the party” without even being there. –BP

This advice is intended for everyone who cares about animals, and that includes Dog Control, SPCA and rescue groups. When a tiny white Maltese went missing Aug. 30, her family immediately posted a lost ad to Facebook. It was shared by many, but could not be cross referenced with any found ads because none were placed by the dog pound that had her for days, or the rescue group that had her the week after that. BZ was clearly not a stray. She was a lost dog wearing a red harness dropped off by a good samaritan who’d found her. Unfortunately she wasn’t microchipped or wearing a collar with an identity tag. She also wasn’t licensed since she lives out of town. She did have a tattoo however - it was just too faded to read. As her family frantically searched in a rural area of Kelowna where they’d been camping, BZ was safe at the dog pound. Valerie and Dwayne Bell hadn’t thought to call there though. They

On A Brighter Note were too busy putting up pictures, knocking on doors and talking to everyone they saw. Fearing she’d been taken by wildlife after days of finding nothing, the family was advised to call Dog Control just in case. Val had already spoken with the SPCA and was told they knew of no dogs matching her description. She then called Kelowna Dog Control and left a message. They didn’t call back until September 10th when they informed the Bell’s the 72 hour holding period had expired and BZ had been re-homed. Shocked to hear this, Valerie rushed over to speak with them in person and was met with insolence by the young woman at the front. Val requested they call whoever had her pup to let them know her family was desperate to get her back. She was rudely told no, and that all adoptions were final.

nary hospital. The rescue agreed to tell the 90-year-old adoptive owner about the situation and BZ was promptly given back. All of this likely would have been avoided if Dog Control or the rescue had simply placed a lost ad on Facebook when they got her.   There’s an amazing community of animal lovers that share lost and found pictures to different Facebook pages as well as their own. With so many people working together to reunite pets with their families, the Bell’s would have been alerted if a picture of BZ had been posted. There are well over a hundred stolen and missing dogs in the Okanagan since last year. Some have fallen victim to depraved dognappers or wild animals, and others have been re-homed or euthanized before they had a chance to be found. BZ is not the first, and she won’t be the last, but communicating on Facebook and posting every critter will minimize the possibility of cherished pets falling through the cracks. Transparency and interaction with the public is long overdue.  LoriWelbourne is a syndicated columnist. LoriWelbourne.com

Tearfully Val explained to her that BZ was 13 years old, had arthritis, was blind in one eye and recently had surgery to remove some teeth. She’d had her beloved pet since she was a puppy and because she’d always been high strung and eccentric, she knew her old dog would be too anxious and stressed to survive in a new home. “She had the compassion of a stick,” Val said of the employee. “I told her she didn’t have a heart and left bawling.” Not willing to give up, the distressed owner took it up with a superior who agreed to make a call. That resulted in being told the same thing: there was nothing they could do, it was done. Val warned she’d keep fighting for BZ and took her story to the media. After a CTV News interview aired on September 13th she received an anonymous call telling her to look on the Okanagan Small Dog and Rescue website. Sure enough BZ was on the adoption page and re-named Peanut. When she contacted Wendy McIntyre at the rescue she was told if they hadn’t taken her, the dog probably would have been euthanized. She was also informed her blind eye had been removed at a veteri-

A most enjoyable experience Editor: On behalf of all the seniors who were able to go on the Trek to Barkerville on Sept. 2 a very big thank you to the Quesnel Rotary Club. It was a most enjoyable experience and it was unfortunate several had to cancel at the last minute. While the Quesnel Rotary has financial assistance for the outing from B.C.

much time and effort into raising money for such things as this. They picked up the tab for the cost of transporting the 120 seniors, lunch at one of the three restaurants, and admission to Theatre Royal which was so worth the trip out. One of the two buses were equipped to take walkers and wheelchairs and was able to drive into the park to the theatre for those with mobility problems. Quesnel Rotary

has been doing this for 52 years and has given so much pleasure in doing so. Thank you from all of us. Ruth Scoullar Quesnel

New gallery show depicts the changing Peace District landscape ANNIE GALLANT Observer Reporter

Q

uesnel Art Gallery’s current show Convergence is the work of two long-time Peace Region artists Mary Mottishaw and Kit Fast, with similar passion for the landscape, two bodies of work with a similar theme, collaborative pieces and layers in the works themselves, both physically and metaphorically. “We reflect the changing Peace region landscape without judgement,” Mottishaw said. “We are observers

of what is going on between industry and the landscape.” In her work, this conceptual mixed-media artist was searching for a way to give her landscape paintings more meaning and context and thus began painting some landscapes over map pieces and historical writing of the area. This led Mottishaw to discover Dawson Creek’s mapping pattern is according to the Dominion Land Survey (DLS), unlike the rest of B.C. “DLS is based on one mile by one mile sections,” she said.

The grid pattern appealed to Mottishaw and she took it one step further, likening the pattern to a cross-stitch design where numbers are assigned to colours and the pattern is worked. This created a seemingly random design but was in fact, orderly. She went so far as to fashion conversations with dots and spaces in some of her work. With surveying as just one way humans interact with the landscape, both Mottishaw and Fast have taken that interaction in several directions. Fast, a photographer, has several large canvases

in the show with bold lines either horizontal or vertical running through his work. These lines are actually two separate photographs, stitched together to create a new reality, also following the grid theme in both artists’ work. Mottishaw uses the grid to observe human’s imprint on the landscape in a variety of ways. Straight lines depict power lines, roadways and of course pipelines whereas the line of jumbled elastic bands remind the viewer that nature is still very evident in such things as brambles in a ditch.

“To describe the fracking process, I used polyester threads in bright colours and acrylic yarn, which are products of the oil and gas industry,” Mottishaw said. Symbols, such as the continuity of the grid pattern throughout both artists’ work, are powerful messages to the viewer. “We want the viewer to find their own interpretation of our work, to observe for themselves,” she said. Fast has ventured along a new direction where he finds objects in the landscape, mounts them for display and includes

the exact mapping coordinates and a few words of his own about the find. Mottishaw admitted this is an ongoing body of work and she’s not sure where it will lead her. Currently she’s back to considering the map and what is implied when land is surveyed. Convergence runs from Sept. 11 – Oct. 3. Meet the artists at a reception Sept. 19, 1 – 3 p.m. in the Quesnel Art Gallery at the Arts and Recreation Centre. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., Tuesday – Saturday. This show is sponsored by West Fraser Mills.

WF’s secret to success

60 years of putting people and values first It adorns most walls, a reminder of humble beginnings and a focus on the future. At the bottom of the white plaque a grainy, black and white photograph – three brothers, side-by-side: Sam, Bill, Pete. “To me it’s amazing that 60 years ago three brothers started a small business on Two Mile Flat,” West Fraser Vice President, Wood Products, Ray Ferris said. The goals on the plaque are simple: • Excellence in performance and people,

• Leadership in our field, • Responsibility in communities in which we work, • Profitability, • Growth It’s how the company and its employees conduct business – a business that continues to see growth in the face of a changing industry. “Many companies have come and gone,” Ferris said. “The strength of our success lies in our people and our values.” West Fraser Corporate Administrator Brian

Balkwill agrees noting the success of the company is directly linked to the contributions of the employees. “We want to thank our people and the community for 60 years,” he said. West Fraser’s consistent and reliable business model is based in efficiency and unwavering attention to cost management. The company consistently reinvests in operations to ensure our committed and dedicated staff have the right resources to compete and win in a

challenging industry. Over the last ten years, West Fraser has grown outside of the company’s original base in British Columbia, increasing their manufacturing capabilities in Alberta and the southern United States. Today they are the largest lumber manufacturer in Alberta and one of the largest in the U.S. South. By pursuing this strategy, the company is creating new platforms for growth in many of the areas where they operate and in regions with stable or growing timber supply.

In 1955, West Fraser’s history began in Quesnel when the Ketcham brothers –Sam,Pete and Bill – bought Two Mile Planer after searching for many months for the right investment in the B.C. interior. They paid $60,000 and were profitable almost immediately, financing bush mills throughout the Quesnel region. West Fraser’s core principle of controlling costs was born in these difficult first years and serves as a defence against wildly volatile lumber markets. West Fraser currently has five facilities in Quesnel that employ a total of 1,341 exceptional people. Our West Fraser Sawmill is the largest mill (by productivity) in North America with an annual capacity of 612 million board feet. Quesnel Plywood’s product is consumed primarily in Canada, with 98 per cent of our production being sold domestically. Many of our facilities in Quesnel use state of the art technology. At Cariboo Pulp and Paper, we installed a 27 megawatt-cogeneration turbo generator in 2012, which uses wood waste to generate power and steam for the mill’s operation. Not only does it produce power for the site, it supplies enough green biomassgenerated electricity to B.C.’s provincial grid to annually power more than 14,000 homes. Quesnel River Pulp’s heat exchangers capture the waste heat from the wastewater more efficiently and as a result, reduce the demand for natural gas in the pulp drying process. Converting to more energy efficient heat exchangers saves approximately the same amount of natural gas consumed each year by 650 residential homes. The medium density fibreboard (MDF) products manufactured at Westpine are from 100 per event recycled wood fiber from our other operations. West Fraser’s MDF is made from spruce and pine sawdust, refined into a dry pulp-like material, combined with resin and manufactured into different thicknesses and densities to suit every use.

West Fraser Quesnel Quick Facts • 1,341 direct employees • 100’s of people indirectly employed by local contractors and businesses • 7 million trees planted in 2015

COMMUNITY

Come check us out on Facebook today!

Congratulations to the Occidental Dengarry Professional Services would like to congratulate the Occidental – Quesnel’s music venue for creating a diverse workforce. This has been shown through their commitment in hiring an individual with developmental disabilities. The business is being rewarded with “Diversity @ Work” stickers to place on their door. The Occidental recognizes the value of a diverse workforce and the contributions people with developmental disabilities can give to the workplace and the community. BC EmployNet has initiated the window sticker program across B.C. to recognize employers who have shown their belief in diversity in the workplace by hiring a capable individual who also happens to have a disability. Many people with developmental disabilities are eager to be employed, want to earn an income, be a contributing member to their community and valued in their jobs. Real work for real pay enhances independence, financial security and fosters a sense of belonging. Part of the goal of recognizing businesses that demonstrate their belief in a diverse workplace is to inform consumers who may in turn choose to use their purchasing power to support such businesses. So, again, we are pleased to congratulate and recognize the Occidental for their efforts and leadership in this area. If you have any questions about the Diversity @ Work program, call Stephanie Pomeroy or Dawn Cameron, 250-992-7900 ext.6.

Voice for Seniors responses to seniors’ issues F

Karin Plato

Grant Simpson

our years ago, Peter Nielsen became the founding member of Voice for Seniors. His heart goes out to any senior in Quesnel who is short of food and many people have been helped.

ENTERTAINMENT

Mini concert set for Sept. 26 During the Culture Days celebrations, a mini concert is planned for Sept. 26 with musician, teacher, musical arranger and composer Grant Simpson and Juno nominee singer Karin Plato. Plato was nominated for a Juno in 2000, Canadian Jazz Vocalist of the Year in 2003 and 2004 at the National Jazz Awards and a Western Canadian Music Award in 2003.

Simpson, for the past 35 years or more, has played, taught, arranged music and composed pieces for dance, choirs, vaudeville shows and full length musicals. These two entertainers perform in the Anglican Church Sept. 26 from 7 – 9 p.m. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased through Brenda Gardiner, 250-255-9751 or email flipflopfabulous5@gmail.com.

Marian Gillard

SENIORS’ UPDATE

When Peter sees any abuse of seniors’ rights, his group will step in to protest. One concern is the Drive Able Program which asks any senior on their 80th birthday to go to Prince George to take a driving test. If the person cannot meet the requirements he or she is not able

to drive anymore, even just around town. Peter says the group is making some progress with the government to reduce this stress. There was another successful outcome when Voice for Seniors objected to the rule on our local transit buses which limited the bags seniors were able to carry on. Now they are permitted to take as many bags as they can reasonably handle. One of the main concerns the group has is the treatment of seniors at G.R. Baker Hospital. Now they have found an ally in Daryl Petsul who manages the third floor. If there is a complaint, Daryl will see how he can help and let Voice for Seniors know.

Peter is also an active member of the Lions and glad to say progress is being made towards breaking ground for the Seniors Housing Project in North Quesnel. Expect movement next spring. Voice for Seniors meets at the Legion

every third Thursday at 2 p.m. Bring any reasonable concern and Peter and his team will step up to the plate. We are glad to have such a caring person in our city. Marian Gillard is a seniors’ advocate and regular Observer columnist.

Peter Neilsen takes seniors’ issues seriously.

IOC narrows Olympic bid to five RYAN GRAHAM Observer Reporter The International Olympic Committee has announced the five cities that are in the running for the 2024 Olympic Summer Games. The five are Paris, Rome, Los Angeles, Budapest and Hamburg. The IOC will select the winning city in 2017. There has been decline in bidding recently, due to the lack of public support and cost. The IOC implemented new policies under ‘Agenda 2020’ which is designed to make it simpler to bid and more affordable to host. Rome hosted the 1960 Olympics and pushed for the 2020 games, but the government stopped the bid due to budget concerns. Hamburg, which has never hosted the games beat out the capital, Berlin in Germany’s bid. Hamburg is suggesting an innercity Olympics within walking distance of each location. They will have a referendum in November to decide whether the city truly wants the games. Budapest has also never hosted the games and has bid for the Olympics five times. Los Angeles will be looking for their third Olympics after hosting in 1932 and 1984. Paris has hosted twice, in 1900 and 1924 and is looking to land the bid after loosing to London in 2012. In August the IOC changed the rules to allow every city bidding to advance to the final vote.

Boxers to compete at Amateur championship RYAN GRAHAM Observer Reporter

Left to right: Charlie Clayton and Evan Peever prepare for their upcoming bout in Edmonton Sept. 19.

Ryan Graham photo

2 Rivers Boxing Club is taking two of its boxers to Edmonton for the Amateur Boxing Championship Saturday Sept. 19. Charlie Clayton faces Rafael Santoro in the main event and Evan Peever takes on Blaze Bogatnov in the other match. The fights take place at the Howard Johnson hotel at 7 p.m. Both have a love of boxing because of the physical fitness aspect. “I’m in better shape than I’ve been in a long time, as well as being fun and good for your mental health,” Clayton said.

LEARN THE SIGNS OF STROKE

is it drooping?

Peever echoed the same sentiment. “Being physically active is very important and the fact that we can do it three days a week, at the club here is awesome,” Peever said. They are feeling confident going into their bouts, as they believe their training will pay off. “I feel very confident,” Peever said. “My opponent might be a little bit bigger than me, but if I stick to my technique and what Wally has instructed me to work on, I think I’ll come out with the W hopefully.” This will be the first time the two are competing outside B.C.

Their training includes cardio, core work and lots of sparing before upcoming fights. Peever and Clayton give credit to their coach for preparing them and the dedication he shows. “Wally is 72 yearsold and he’s still competing and that’s a great mentor to have in our corner,” Peever said. The club operates three times a week Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 6 – 8 p.m. and are always looking for new members. “People should come down, it’s a very welcoming club,” Clayton said.

September 6 - 12, 2015 ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Hasty reactions can lead to unnecessary problems, Aries. Instead of making assumptions, wait until you get a clear picture before you come to any conclusions this week. TAURUS – Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, others are impressed with your analysis and ability to get the job done at work. Don’t be surprised if you soon find yourself in line for a promotion. GEMINI – May 22/Jun 21 There is nothing wrong with trying to make special moments last as long as they can, Gemini. If you want to linger over a romantic dinner or keep the party going, do so. CANCER – Jun 22/Jul 22 Try to find a balance between your need for connection and a desire to be alone, Cancer. This week you may have to do some juggling, but it is nothing you can’t handle. LEO – Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, you may feel free and adaptable right now, but in reality your plans are much more fixed. You may not want to stray too far from what’s expected. VIRGO – Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, the depth of your feelings this week may come as a surprise to you. Everything makes you feel a bit more emotional than usual. It is okay to spend some time in thought. LIBRA – Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, your mood begins to lift as you find many reasons to celebrate this week. The simplest things can bring you happiness. Don’t forget to share joy with others. SCORPIO – Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, you can’t quite figure out if you are happy or sad, because each new opportunity seems like an emotional roller coaster. Enjoy the ride and appreciate the good times. SAGITTARIUS – Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, you can appreciate all the little details that come with tasks this week. You may see things that others don’t because you are paying extra attention to your surroundings. CAPRICORN – Dec 22/Jan 20 Right now you aren’t very happy about having to deal with someone who isn’t always honest with you, Capricorn. Just maintain a neutral attitude and you will find happiness. AQUARIUS – Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, you appreciate all the positive feelings coming your way, especially in a week as challenging as this one. Make the most of all of the positive vibes. PISCES – Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, you may have a hard time distinguishing between fantasy and reality the next few days. But enjoy the extra time to daydream. FAMOUS BIRTHDAYS SEPTEMBER 20 - Phillip Phillips, Singer (25) SEPTEMBER 21 - Jason Derulo, Singer (26) SEPTEMBER 22 - Scott Baio, Actor (55) SEPTEMBER 23 - Jason Alexander, Actor (56) SEPTEMBER 24 - Nia Vardalos, Actress (53) SEPTEMBER 25 - Mark Hamill, Actor (64) SEPTEMBER 26 - Olivia Newton-John, Singer (67)
