#9-5824 Sechelt Inlet Rd,

“We keep it dry”

It’s a Roberts Creek tradition. A member of the Roberts Creek Volunteer Fire Department offers candy to kids attending the Higgeldy Piggeldy parade Aug.10. The parade opens the community’s Creek Daze celebration, and the fire department trucks come at the end of the parade with candy; in the past candy has been thrown into the crowd from the trucks, but this year the kids were invited to politely choose their own. (The candy was carried in a “collapsible water bucket” the department is selling for $20 – a foldable fabric bag that can be taken to the beach and then used to scoop water from the ocean to put out your beach fire. Or it can be used to carry candy.) JANE COVERNTON PHOTO

Danielle Segal, of Gibsons, had fun posing in front of vintage cars Saturday, Aug. 10 on Cowrie St. in Sechelt, where more than 300 vehicles took part in the Coast Car Club’s show and shine. On Friday night, the cars paraded up the highway to Halfmoon Bay in the club’s Sleepy Hollow Rod Run. Event chair Mike Shanks said the only problem was a higher-than-usual number of “burnouts” leaving tire tracks on the pavement in the 6500 block of Hwy 101 and along Redroofs Rd. He is asking that anyone with photos or licence numbers of those involved to send them to shanks@dccnet.com. (The drag races at Sechelt Airport on Sunday – which was to feature a burnout “contest” – had to be cancelled due to rain. The races have been rescheduled for Saturday, Sept. 7.) A number of the cars also appeared a show and shine in Pender Harbour on Sunday. RYAN KOROLISCHUK PHOTO

Changes in SCREDO leadership Growing pains for the Sunshine Coast Regional Economic Development Organization (SCREDO) continue. Chair David Chisholm and program manager Chris Hergesheimer are leaving the organization by this fall. Recruitment for the chair’s position is underway. Hergesheimer plans to stay with SCREDO to provide orientation to the newcomer, before moving on to a personal career-building opportunity in Europe. He presented an update on SCREDO’s 2019 operations to Sechelt’s committee of the whole on July 24. In his presentation, Hergesheimer requested that the area’s local governments coordinate meetings this fall to discuss the renewal of SCREDO’s funding. SCREDO’s four-year funding agreement with its local government partners ends in December, 2020. Hergesheimer reported that SCREDO focuses on local and regional partnerships to foster economic development on the lower Sunshine Coast. He cited the organizations work with the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), that attracts immigrant investors to communities, as one of its successes. In this pilot project SCREDO is the local contact for program referrals. It also coordinates support for these entrepreneurs in establishing themselves on the Coast. SCREDO

has received 220 referrals under the program – 29 of which lead to SCREO preparing full referral packages. An application for a new arrival in Gibsons is in progress. Another SCREDO strong point is the FUSE workhub program. Hubs, which are shared offices that allow entrepreneurs access to meeting space, resources and opportunities to work together are now located in Gibsons, Sechelt and Madeira Park. Earlier this year SREDO partnered with the Community Resource Centre to obtain an $84,000 grant for a social enterprise incubator. SREDO provided matching funds and the program, which allows non-profit groups to share expertise and operational space, is now up and running. The organization’s career training undertak-

ings have struggled, due to the demands on staff and board time in other areas. Hergesheimer stated that as the other programs become better established, SCREDO will have more energy to focus on career training in future years. In responding to Councillor Matt McLean’s question about what SCREDO is doing to promote the area offCoast, Hergesheimer noted that along with its work with the PNP, the group maintains an investment attraction website, investsunshinecost. ca. This site contains demographic and statistical data for the Coast. It also directs potential investors to SCREDO contacts for programs and services that are available for to those looking to establish business in the area. Connie Jordison

subject of recycling awareness at the Kinsmen Hall in Dougall Park, Gibsons, 9:3011:30am. The BC Green caucus has achieved a number of milestones in the spring legislative session including the passing of the first-ever BC Green bill. The “Business Amendment Corporations Act” enables a new class of business called benefit corporations that want to pursue environmental and so-

cial goals in addition to their primary objective of profit. It is also the first opposition private member’s bill in BC history to pass. A second Green bill also became law in May. The “Residential Tenancy Amendment Act” provides tenants with the ability to end their fixed-term lease if staying in the rental unit is a threat to their safety or security. Submitted

Editorial Opinion

Weekly Cartoon

“Better housing will help” On August 7, I attended Provincial Court in Sechelt, to report on the proceedings. Having restarted my career in journalism after a 40-year hiatus, I had not been in court as a reporter for many years, and never at this location. I printed out Sechelt’s court docket (available online at 6am on court date) at home to help me follow the business of the day. The docket listed 30 individuals who were slated to appear. I had no idea if 30 cases was a large or a small number. A check of other Provincial Courts listed on the website showed that on August 7, Revelstoke had 16 cases, Cranbrook three, Smithers 13 and Port Alberni 36 – some of them cases from adjacent communities. The justice system is complex. It can take several appearances before the court for a case to be concluded. Many of the individuals appearing in Sechelt on August 7 had their cases delayed, pending consultation with legal counsel. Some cases were rescheduled at the request of the crown prosecutor. Only a few reached resolution that day. One stood out to me: a 30-year-old male charged with a single count of theft for shoplifting $143 worth of hygiene products from a local pharmacy. This long-time resident of the Coast pleaded guilty. A record of his past criminal charges was presented to the judge. His lawyer stated the individual had been using crystal methamphetamine for 10 years and was supporting himself on a disability allowance. At the time this man was charged, he was staying at RainCity’s shelter. Since that time, he has secured help in dealing with his addiction and a more stable living situation in the supportive housing facility in Sechelt. Provincial Court Judge Steven Merrick commended the accused on his recent efforts to stay out of the court system and encouraged him to make positive changes to his lifestyle. Merrick said, “better housing will help”. The judge then passed a sentence of one year probation with a number of conditions. The person charged is a local. He is not someone from Vancouver’s downtown east side or another location with no connections to the Coast. While this is only one case, it is a positive example in the eyes of an experienced judge of what supportive housing can do, and is doing in Sechelt. It is something that should be considered, along with the view of the area’s residents, when the Town of Gibson makes its decisions related to the province’s offer to build supportive housing in that community.

Letters to the Editor – Opinions Canadian kindness When I married my Canadian wife and moved here from the U.S., one of the many things that impressed me was how compassionate Canadians were. Indeed, who “shouldn’t” be entitled to medical care? (Of course, it helped that Canada didn’t feel compelled to spend over half its budget on de-

fence – but wasn’t that an indication of compassion, too?) Unlike many of the Americans I’d known, Canadians weren’t quick to criticize each other. They didn’t routinely haul each other into court. They were more likely to respond to conflict with courtesy and kindness, to seek cooperative solu-

tions. Canadians of non-European descent weren’t made to feel like foreigners, or even persecuted. To the contrary, Canadians celebrated their multiculturalism, and encouraged and appreciated each other’s traditions. That’s why I’m surprised and disappointed by the loud opposition to hous-

Vancouver, North Vancouver and West Vancouver all have declared a “climate emergency”. Why have none of the communities on the Sunshine Coast also declared a climate emergency? Do we think that the “magic ferry” delivers us onto another planet where global warming is not a problem? Where we can fiddle while the planet burns. Am I the only one panicking? Joan Payne, Sechelt

ing for homeless people on the Sunshine Coast. Shouting matches erupt at town meetings. Signs are vandalized. Groundless fears are expressed that homeless people will endanger our children. (Not long ago, that was something said about gay people, and other minorities.) There are many reasons people become homeless – including neglect, abuse, disabilities, and sheer bad luck. Very few choose to live without a roof over their heads. Just because we’re separated from the Lower Mainland by a ferry doesn’t mean we’re separated from the principles of decency. I hope the people of the Coast will find a way to rise above the paranoia, focus on those less fortunate than we, and be the kinds of Canadians I’ve come to admire and love. Andy Fielding, Sechelt

Counterfeit money Sunshine Coast RCMP are warning retailers and the public to be aware of possible counterfeit money on the Coast. Police were advised on August 7 of a suspected counterfeit $100 bill in Sechelt. In general, for most newer-series banknotes, the Bank of Canada recommends checking for difficult-to-counterfeit features such as a hologram in the otherwise transparent win-

dow of the bill, raised ink in places including the phrase Bank of Canada, and a transparent outline around the maple leaf on the face side of the bill. Retailers can educate themselves and staff at the Bank of Canada website on how to recognize counterfeit bills. https://www.bankofcanada.ca/banknotes/counterfeit-prevention/ Submitted by RCMP

A photo caption in the Aug. 8 issue of the Local incorrectly identified a rescue boat as a Coast Guard vessel when in fact it was the “Iona C” from the Pender Harbour Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue (RCMSAR Unit 61). The fire department called the Coast Guard to pick up an injured youth from the shore, and the Coast Guard dispatched the RCMSAR. The Local apologizes for the error. Editor

Ride-hailing company already recruiting drivers

With the provincial government due to bring forward legislation in the fall to permit ride-hailing companies like Uber and Lyft to operate in BC,

options for public transportation should increase. Whether the impact will reach as far as the Sunshine Coast is yet to be determined, but one company

is already recruiting. Kater Technologies has been allowed to operate a test of ride-hailing operations within the Vancouver area for

“It will be very interesting to see what happens when the new ride hailing legislation comes into effect,” said Michele Morton, co-founder and CEO of Share-There Enterprises. Share-There has operated a successful platform for Sunshine Coast residents to plan ride-sharing since 2014. . Public transportation on the Coast faces challenges, with a population of about 30,000 residing a geographic area of 1,458 square miles. BC Transit operations on the Coast are limited to between 5am to midnight and on set routes. Local taxi companies focus services mainly on the communities and commercial areas of Gibsons and Sechelt. This lack of transportation options for Coast residents inspired Morton and her husband to create Share-There. “Our focus is on reducing single occupancy vehicle use

the last few months. Company CEO Scott Larson said “Kater has plans to expand to other districts outside the Lower Mainland. As ride-hailing is rolled out across the province, Kater will be announcing their regional expansion goals. We are actively encouraging all those drivers interested in being a part of our operations to visit Kater. com and start the driver application process.” Kater drivers provide rides using their own vehicles, which are subject to company approval and inspections. Drivers must be over the age of 19 years and hold a valid Class 4 or higher BC driver’s licence. They must pass a criminal record and vulnerable sector check, as well as provide proof of eligibility to work in Canada. Kater reviews applicants’ driving abstracts and insurance claim history.

rather than on providing a taxi service. People can use our website (share-there. com) to offer or request free rides to events or other activities or locations,” said Morton. “Free ride sharing means that a driver’s normal insurance covers their passengers in the same way it does when driving a friend or family member. Once a fee is charged, especially to make a profit, there are different licensing requirements and insurance or liability issues,” explained Morton. As a for-profit company providing transportation services, Kater’s fare structure will be set by the province’s Passenger Transportation Board (PTB). The cost of a Kater ride will begin at $3.35. There are additional charges of 57 cents per minute that the ride takes, and $1.93 per kilometer travelled. Connie Jordison Sunshine Coast RCMP are requesting the publics assistance in locating a white 2006 E350 van stolen from Pender Harbour Diesel in Pender Harbour on August 5 at 3:05am. The van was bearing BC license plate HM1354 when it was stolen and had a silver metal roof rack which may have been removed. Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to call the Sunshine Coast RCMP at 604-885-2266 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800222-8477. RCMP PHOTO

Mayor’s Message Darnelda Siegers Mayor, District of Sechelt

Recently the District of Sechelt was awarded an airport grant of just over $1million to resurface and extend the airport runway. This grant covers 75 per cent of the cost with the remainder coming from our gas tax revenue. Council also formed an Airport Development Committee to investigate economic development opportunities at the airport. Currently, both Harbour Air and Sunshine Coast Air provide floatplane service to the Sunshine Coast. They operate using daytime, VFR or Visual Flight Rules. That means that they can’t fly at night or in inclement weather below the minimum VFR limits. The current capabilities of the Sunshine Coast regional airport allow for night time operations but the limited runway length negates larger commercial operators from being able to use the airport with aircraft of any commercially-viable capacity or for scheduled operations. The airport also does not

Books & Beyond Andrea Routley

Community Outreach Coordinator, Gibsons and District Public Library

Some people start book clubs because they want to drink wine. Or maybe it’s for the brownies. Some seek to gain a deeper understanding of the stories they read and the friends with whom they discuss them. (Of course, you can do all of the above at the same time.) A book club can provide the structure and motivation to read and read diversely, to discover stories that explore experiences different from our own – or similar. All of these stories are important as they enable us to see ourselves and each other, and ex-

have Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) capability that would allow aircraft to land and take-off in inclement weather. The improvements could open up the airport for use by larger commercial scheduled operators and allow for added IFR or Instrument Flight Rules capability. That means that at night or when there is inclement weather, airplanes could potentially still take off and land at the strip up on Field Rd. This would be a great benefit in the shorter winter daylight hours, allowing extended operations outside the scope of what floatplanes can provide. Helicopter Air Ambulance is currently only able to service our hospital in VFR conditions, day or night. After the improvements are completed, we will have added options of fixed wing aircraft when the helicopters are not available and both fixed wing and helicopter could use the potential IFR capability in inclement weather. Other vital services, like RCMP Lower Mainland Special Service Units, fire-fighting teams, urgent medical supply deliveries, are about being able to get someone or something somewhere in a short period of time at any time of day or night.

The first question those looking to invest in our community ask is “do you have an airport?” They recognize the value aviation provides by connecting cities and markets. New small and medium-sized companies would be enticed to locate here and be able to remain in our area, creating local jobs while remaining connected to the larger cities and markets. As companies establish and grow, they are sometimes pressured to relocate away from the Sunshine Coast in order to have access to larger markets and the worldwide transportation network provided by airports. Finally, we have a lot of residents who provide expertise through consulting globally. While airports and airline services move cargo, they also contribute to knowledge and service-based businesses. In today’s knowledge economy, the most precious cargo airplanes move is people. The ability to move people, who generate and share knowledge, matters even more than the ability to move cargo and would allow our local knowledge network to continue to reside on the Sunshine Coast while they do business in larger cities.

perience a sense of belonging and connection with others. This fall, the library hosts four book clubs. None of them includes wine, but occasionally there are brownies. And there is definitely discussion on a diverse range of books. The long-running GDPL book club continues with popular titles, such as “The White Angel”, true-crime fiction by BC author John MacLachlan Gray (Sept. 11); “Becoming”, by Michelle Obama (Oct. 9), the most requested title of the year; and finally “Chop Suey Nation”, by Ann Hui (Nov. 13). The inaugural LGBTQ2 book club, “Elevenses,” meets Saturday, Sept. 7 at – you guessed it – 11am, to discuss Joshua Whitehead’s Lambda Literary Award-winning novel, “Jonny Appleseed”, over coffee and muffins. The library has also teamed up

with Capilano University and Sunshine Coast Community Service’s “Welcoming Communities” to offer monthly ESL Reading Discussion groups. Facilitated by Trudi Diening, participants of all levels are invited to sign up to read and discuss articles and books. Finally, the teen book club resumes this fall, so sign up for the library’s monthly e-newsletter for details on that and more. And if you are already a member of a book club, visit the library for suggestions – we have several book-club sets available for borrowing, so you can save your book money for the wine and brownies… If you are interested in attending one of the library’s book clubs, simply call the library at 604-886-2130.

wonders of our universe. At dusk, our astronomers will have their telescopes in the park picnic area for viewing Jupiter, Saturn, and countless other celestial objects. With clear skies and a new moon, participants should be able to see constellations,

star clusters and nebulae. It’s the best show on earth and it’s absolutely free. Remember to bring a flashlight with a red light to preserve night vision. Weather permitting. More info at www.coastastronomy.ca. Submitted

Astronomy in the park The Sunshine Coast Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada is bringing the popular Astronomy in the Park program back to Porpoise Bay Provincial Park in Sechelt on Saturday Aug. 24, 1-11:30pm. There will be club telescopes, an information booth with membership information, displays and astronomy related giveaways. The first “star” of the day will be the sun, and with the club’s safe solar telescopes, participants will be able to look for fiery prominences and sun-spots. Club members will be on hand with telescopes all afternoon and into the night to answer questions and show off the

It’s just not right

On August 6 at around 10am, while the owners were out for a swim near the Sechelt waterfront pier, a suspect stole their bags which had been left on the beach. The owners attempted to chase down the suspect and recover their bags, which contained a variety of

items including cell phones. The suspect, who has been identified, was able to flee the scene on foot. Police are attempting to locate the male who is described as a slim, pale blonde-haired Caucasian male in his mid-thirties. The file is still under investigation. Submitted by RCMP

When the rain finally gives way to sunny days on the Sunshine Coast, the towns begin to buzz with an air of celebration. And celebrate we did. From pillow fights in canoes to the crowning of the “Pulp Queen”, West Howe Sound was the place to be. In the early 1900s, the summer months brought crowds of people to the Coast, and with them came the West Howe Sound Regatta. Starting in 1929, it was held alternately at Granthams, Hopkins, and Gibsons Landing. A “costume parade” started the festivities and soon enough the wharf would be brimming with spectators, many of whom had just made the trip over by Union Steamship. Events included home-made raft races, swimming competitions, sailing races, and pillow fights in canoes. There was also the “skin game”, a tanning competition with each community submitting

three contestants. The regatta continued throughout the ‘30s, but came to an end after the Second World War. The middle of August would then bring the Fall Fair. Community members competed for cash prizes by bringing in entries to be judged and displayed at Gibsons Elementary throughout the weekend. Categories included baked goods, farm animals, flowers, produce, and even hobbies such as needlework or photography. Apart from the displays, a children’s parade would also take place on Saturday. During the parade in 1959 : “A group entry won special merit, a group of Gibson Girls all charming maidens who excelled in doing the Charleston. When time came to gather names half these charming maidens were found to be young gentlemen.” (Coast News, Aug. 20, 1959). Port Mellon also had its time to shine with the annual Labour Day celebrations at Seaside Park. Various sports competitions took place throughout the day, although the crowning of the Pulp Queen, a tradition since

the late 1940s, was the main event. School children voted for a Queen from the 6th grade, while representatives of younger grades would be cast as flower girls, pages, and crown bearers. Games of bingo were also held, and an evening of dancing wrapped up the day. In more recent history, from 1969-2018, Gibsons Landing was home to Sea Cavalcade. Originally created to bring all of the communities together, at times the spectacle included two dances (one on the Gibsons wharf and one in the Legion), the crowning of the Sea Cavalcade Queen, a children’s fishing derby, a “war of hoses”, fireworks, and a parade. Coming our way this weekend from August 16 to 18 , is another beloved event, the Sunshine Coast Festival of the Written Arts. First held in 1983, the festival attracts an audience of 8,500 throughout the weekend, to hear authors from across Canada. Celebrations have come and gone, but as time has proven, there will always be something exciting to bring the Sunshine Coast together.

Art Review Anna Nobile Freelance Creative Writer, Arts & Culture

The Mix visual art show featuring Charly Mithrush, Lore Schmidts and Donna Stewart, takes place August 16-18 at the Seaside Centre in Sechelt. Art lovers will know that Power of Paint usually takes place during the mid-August weekend, but with PoP taking a break from exhibiting, the three artists of The Mix felt stepping into the traditional exhibition slot would be a great opportunity for them to showcase their work. They’ve invited Francine Desjardins to join them as a guest artist. “Somebody’s got to go in there,” says Mithrush of why The Mix decided to show at Seaside. “It would be a shame for it to sit empty on this weekend.” Mithrush has been an artist all her life, taking courses at Emily Carr and Capilano universities, but perhaps the best art education she received was from her father who worked as a commercial artist. “He was absolutely the best teacher,” says Mithrush whose studio is in Halfmoon Bay. “We had an old arborite table and my dad would take it out and we [Mithrush and her siblings] were allowed to draw right on the table.” Her father’s occupation exposed Mithrush to a variety of art styles and mediums, an early influence that is still present in her work. She started with

watercolour. “Watercolour is one of the harder mediums to learn,” she says. “You have to let it happen. Learning that was key.” From there she moved on to acrylics, printmaking, photography, and working with wood and resins. “My new love is encaustics and books,” she says. She has been collecting book covers and dedication pages from libraries, recycling depots, and second-hand stores at home and on recent trips to Paris and Florence. “I just love them,” she says of the vintage books. “They’re like little treasures.” Mithrush is a collector of “bits and bobs” and incorporates all sorts of things into her artwork: dried flowers, crown moulding, jewellery, vintage papers, photos, and books. An avid reader, she also uses text and lines of poetry and philosophy to create a narrative. “Telling a story would be the common thread that ties [the artworks] all together,” she admits. A black and white blueprint for a house topped by a colourful and textured bird nest is as much about habitat loss as it is about the idea of home. The geometric “Built on a Dream,” which includes floor plans of the recently damaged Notre Dame Cathedral, is as much about architecture as is it about human aspirations and invention. “I’ve gotten to the point now where as an artist I want to push things,” she says. Her work unites various elements, mediums and styles, and is reflective of an approach

that uses a sense of play, discovery and experimentation. “How can I get them all to dance together?” she says of those diverse elements. “How can I create those really unique pieces that have everything? To me, that’s the fun part.” For the weekend exhibit, the artists are planning to display their larger pieces on the main floor with smaller pieces being shown upstairs.

Hopefully we’ll have a great reception.” The Mix runs at the Seaside Centre this weekend. Opening reception August 16, 5 to 9pm; August 17, 10am to 7pm; and August 18, 10am to 5pm.

On Thursday July 25th Charny Lee Emmbach (nee Rennie) loving Mom and Grandmother, passed away peacefully at age 73, surrounded by her loving family. Charny was born in Calgary, Alberta on October 20th 1945 to John Rennie and Elsie Rennie (nee Hopkins). Charny is survived by her son Andrew and her daughter Sharole, her grandchildren, Jordann, Romy, Sam, Sydney and Lily as well as her brother Ron Rennie (nieces Christine, Michelle and nephew Aaron) her brother Russ and sister Pam. In her earlier years she went to the Hollingshead Business College in Calgary and worked for a shipping company at the Marine Building in Vancouver. A long time Sunshine Coast resident, Charny was known for her tremendous sense of humor and quick wit, but it was her kind and compassionate heart that endeared her to so many. She was well known for looking after dogs for many coast residents and her love for her beautiful garden. She loved to care for the birds over the winters and enjoyed being a member of The Order of The Eastern Star. Her grandchildren fondly remember their endless crafts days with their beloved Gee. She was always willing to help others in their times of need and she will be sorely missed and remembered fondly for the bright, beautiful, kind soul that she was.

Tip of the Week: The Cazimi New Moon in Leo has culminated to full. The Aquarius Full Moon is reflecting back all the Leo energy that continues to thump and beat. Venus has been in hot and steady pursuit of an exact conjunction with Mars for weeks now. Unusually slippery and evasive, Venus will not catch up to her celestial lover until August 24th when both are in Virgo. Leo is sexier than Virgo, in the astrological scheme of things. Yet many will agree that the chase is at least half the fun. Whether she will be too tired and he too busy for love when they finally connect remains to be seen. Currently, Venus is conjunct the Sun, which occurs about every 10 months and in a different sign each time. This is generally a harmonious and charming influence and the Leo influence will produce to a more passionate and playful mood than pretty much any other sign. How will you receive this sweet mix? Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19) The Leo heat continues to warm your buns. Mercury is now there as of August 11th is adding to the inspiration to draw you out to play. While it was in Cancer, you may have felt a bit reticent for full exposure. Well, all such shy evasion has been replaced by a flagrant impulse that beckons you to come out of your shell and reveal your riches. Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20) Leo love is all huddling and cuddling close to home in your universe. Bringing it home has and continues to

In 2015, Elphinstone Logging Focus (ELF) presented FoER with information on the Clack Creek Forest that included two scientific reports indicating its high levels of bio-diversity. One report concluded that the creeks and streams that flowed through the area contained excellent habitat for both the endangered Coastal Tailed and RedLegged frogs, and the second report documented the largest patches in the province of the rare Rubus-nivalis (snow bramble) native plant. The area is found in a low-elevation mature forest. “The Sunshine Coast has

one Ecological Reserve around Ambrose Lake protecting a rare bog ecosystem. No new ERs have been established in the province since 2009 while our biodiversity deficit continues to grow,” states Ross Muirhead, forest campaigner for ELF. “The Clack Creek Forest meets the test for an ER to be established, however BC Timber Sales is being willfully blind and instead awarded a cutting permit to Black Mount Logging of Squamish. Logging could begin in early fall which would not be welcomed by the community.” Submitted

Ecological Reserve status rejected

The BC government, through its logging agency BC Timber Sales, has approved logging in a forest proposed as an Ecological Reserve (ER) by Victoria-based “Friends of Ecological Reserves” (FoER). The Clack Creek Forest, on the Elphinstone slopes, was nominated by the group in 2016 to become an ER; however, after repeated communications with the government, their proposal was rejected for reasons unknown.

hardly shallow and cannot be described as lite weight. Hopefully, it is real and strong the way you want it because it is plucking your heart strings. Aquarius (Jan 20–Feb 19) As is always true for you when it comes to the sun’s sign, everything gets reversed. You see Leo is your opposite, as complimentary as that may be. While some may say you are poles apart the fact is just like Yin and Yang the one is invariably in the other. And now with the Moon shining brightly and true, the expression is one of wonder, as that is what others are feeling regarding you. Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20) When work is play and play is work it may be said that the golden mean has been realized. Hardly an idle time, under the Full Moon that shines a light on your mystical soul, all you can do is to respond to the silvery hues. The lunar rhythms and solar beats are pushing you up on both feet and making you dance and whistle while you work.

while others summon us to nip out of sight and behind the scenes. This is not to say you will be idle; just the opposite, actually. An active and dynamic theme of focus is indicated and could be described as magnificent. Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22) Fun in the sun continues as your current summons. Can you do that? You can wear a hat. However, you choose to make your way to the R & R zone, do it because it promises to be a real treat. The yellow hue of the Moon is waxing bright in its full splendor too and is calling out to you. At times likes this it is practically your duty to party. Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21) That’s four planets now in your career house, let alone the auspicious New Moon there a couple of weeks ago. One way or another, destiny is prompting synchronicities. Do you have something to say or show and want some attention? If so, come out from behind the curtain and you may be surprised to see that all the seats are taken and your fans await you. Sagittarius (Nov 22–Dec 21) You may find yourself laughing, loudly even, for no apparent reason, of late. Some may think you have lost it but that makes you even laugh louder.

Inspirations and flowers in whatever form you have woven into your destiny to activate creative engagement, it is the message. Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21) Leo is especially close to your heart. Mercury has been described as the Moon of the Sun and that is just one of the ways. The other is the mother that nurtures your soul from the perspective of your solar chart. The solution to the riddle requires astrology science to answer so just go with the flow because you are a star in this show, by any other name. Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22) The Aquarian Moon is reflecting a deep story for you. It is pushing to purge the past and embrace the eternal now. Reinvention is one word while investment is another. Together these reveal a complex process yet which shines its light on original design. Make way and make room and clear the clutter to allow the Leo pulse to be embraced. Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23) The party of planets in your sign should feel especially exciting for you. They can hardly go unnoticed and this will be true of the attention you are getting. The Full Moon in Aquarius is directing the spotlight to gatherings where friends and family engage. Bigger shifts in your public and professional world are featured but this special scene is important too. Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)l Cave, den, studio, lab, bed… whichever fits your style these days is where you will want to be. Some cycles are for outward reach
