City is willing to soften HST blow BY PAUL J. HENDERSON firstname.lastname@example.org

Chilliwack MLA John Les received applause when he told Metro Vancouver representatives Wednesday that local residents aren’t interested in incineration.
‘Wrong dog and pony show’
BY PAUL J. HENDERSON email@example.com
e t r o Va n c o u v e r politicians and bureaucrats faced a cold reception from Chilliwack residents and Fraser Valley politicians Wednesday night at the consultation meeting into Metro’s draft waste management plan. “You brought the wrong dog and pony show,” Mayor Sharon Gaetz said to the panel, which included Delta mayor and Metro Chair Lois Jackson, and Port Coquitlam
Politicians and citizens make it loud and clear that waste-to-energy not wanted in the valley mayor and waste management committee chair Greg Moore. Gaetz added that even though Metro was involved in the successful fight against the SE2 power project five years ago, things have changed. “What will you say when SE3 comes knocking?” she asked. “I’m afraid you’ll have to be silent because you’ve lost credibility.” The meeting was the latest in the
ongoing consultation meetings Metro has held to present its plan, which at its heart is a proposal to build a waste-to-energy ( WTE) incineration facility rather than continue to truck garbage to the Cache Creek landfill. Opponents of the plan from across the Lower Mainland point to the unique funnel-like airshed in the Fraser Valley that simply cannot take more point sources of
air pollution. Before the public meeting and during the open house, Zero Waste B.C. organized a small rally in front of the Best Western in Chilliwack where the meeting was held. John Vissers led the rally and introduced speakers that included Gaetz, Abbotsford Coun. Patricia Ross, Ben West from the Wilderness
he Harmonized Sales Tax will hit parks and recreation users in Chilliwack, but a new city bylaw will soften the blow by phasing in cost increases over time. The bylaw came to council at the last meeting and was designed to change fees at city-owned facilities starting July 1 for the 2010/2011, 2011/2012 and 2012/2013 years. A staff report to council said the fee changes are based on finding a balance between “full cost recovery and current market rates.” “The most significant impact to the bylaw this year, affecting both the city and our customers is the implementation of the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST),” the staff report said. The city has always collected five per cent GST, but the HST would mean a seven per cent bump in costs to users if passed on. Many events, such as Loonie/ Toonie special events, have GST included in the cost, so some other rates will go up nominally to make up for the extra seven and 14 cents that won’t be charged to users. “If the city were to soften the blow to our customers, by absorbing some or of all of the HST impact, the costs to the city would be up to $20,000 per year until the full cost of HST were passed along to consumers,” staff said. An example of an increase users will see to help offset the increased costs is a reduction in the punch card discount for skate programs, which will be the cost of nine regular drop-ins (10 for the price of nine), rather than the current offer of 12 for the price of 10.

The sudden resignation of half of the Chilliwack Museum and Historical Society left the organization in a precarious legal position. Infighting amongst the board has left the Society without the ability to hold a quorum as the president, vice-president and two trustees handed in their resignations following a board meeting. Coun. Dorothy Kostrezwa accused the board of acting in an irresponsible manner.

Police cracking down on speed-caused collisions
Father’s Day Sale Saturday June 19
BY TYLER OLSEN email@example.com
f you’re driving near a shopping centre or a highway on-ramp look out: you’re probably driving through one of Chilliwack’s most dangerous intersections. ICBC and the Chilliwack RCMP have released a list of the city’s most accident-prone intersections and the top six are either highway interchanges or high-traffic areas near shopping centres. At the top of the list, and far ahead of the pack, sits the very busy Luckakuck Way and Vedder Road intersection. About 75 accidents (the report rounds to the nearest five) were reported at the intersection in 2009, 20 more than the second-most dangerous traffic exchange, where Promontory, Vedder and Watson roads meet. Both those intersections sit between shopping centres. The next four intersections-of-shame all feature Trans-Canada Highway on-ramps and off-ramps. The most dangerous highway exchange is also the one currently undergoing a facelift; the Lickman Road intersection with the highway saw about 50 crashes last year. The Prest Road highway exchange sits tied for fourth with the Vedder Road off-ramp/onramp and the Yale Road on-ramp/off-ramp is the sixth most accident-prone intersection. If combined together, the short section of Yale and Vedder roads that cross the highway would almost take top spot. Of the 21 most accident prone locations, 14 are along the Yale-Vedder roads corridor. With this information in hand, Chilliwack

Mounties issued 62 tickets Monday in a crackdown on speeders on Vedder Road.
Mounties hit the road Monday to crack down on speeders along Vedder Road. Drivers were allowed two chances to recognize they were going too fast—a posted speed limit sign and a volunteer-manned speed reader board. If they still didn’t slow down, police handed out a ticket. Sixty-two tickets were issued Monday, according to police, along with seven warnings. Two prohibited drivers were taken off the road. Police say they also arrested two men in a stolen vehicle. They are charged with possession of stolen property and possession of a controlled substance. “What we’re trying to do is focus our enforcement around some of the main roads leading into the intersections where we do have a high incidence of collisions and attempt to reduce the speed,” RCMP spokesperson LeaAnne Dunlop told the Times. “Speed is almost always a factor in serious collisions.”

News Council informed about FVCDC Run, Walk ’n‘ Roll fundraiser Karen McLean and Nicole Misura from the Fraser Valley Child Development Centre (FVCDC) gave Chilliwack city council a presentation at the last meeting on what the FVCDC does and on the upcoming Run, Walk ‘n’ Roll fundraiser. The FVCDC deals with the short- and long-term needs for children with developmental issues. The centre has offices across the Fraser Valley, helps 2,200 children annually and, while they are funded in part by the provincial government, fundraises for a significant amount of services. The Run, Walk ’n‘ Roll is June 26 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Sardis secondary. There is a one-kilometre walk or roll and a fivekilometre fun run. To find out more information or to register visit www.fvcdc.org. Roads closed periodically while Ryder Lake toads migrate City council agreed to a request from the Fraser Valley Conservancy to periodically close two roads in the Ryder Lake area to help this year’s migration of western toads. Each year tens of thousands of western
Council briefs toads cross Ryder Lake and Elkview roads on their natural migratory path from the wetland to the forest. Last year volunteers successfully helped 38,750 toadlets cross the roads while many more made it on their own. In 2009, the city gave permission for a closure of Elkview for a total of 17 hours in late July to aid in the toad rescue. This year the closure will be more extensive by including Ryder Lake Road, but is not to exceed 25 hours. Tyson-Stevenson sewer project given go ahead The bylaw to allow for the completion of the sewer project in the TysonStevenson area was given final adoption at the last meeting of council. The $4 million infrastructure project will provide sewer service to replace septic fields for 442 properties in the Sardis neighbourhood. Federal/provincial grants of $2.5 million paid
for most of the project, with the city and property owners footing the rest of the bill. The city’s share of the project is $680,262.57 and the property owners’ is $787,948.98. Not enough petitions against the project were received so it was given final adoption. Going green at Southern Drip gets noticed by council Normally a development permit for a commercialindustrial property wouldn’t warrant much notice, but Southern Drip Irrigation on Yale Road West has some plans to get attention. The application to build a two-storey building on the site includes extensive landscaping, a dry “stream” designed for ponding of storm water, and a slanted green roof that will be visible from the highway. Council approved the permit as staff were impressed that the project would create a positive visual impression along the highway. Coun. Pat Clark is on the development review panel and said the project would be “very attractive from the freeway.”

Local riders did wheely well
hilliwack participants out-cycled their Abbotsford counterparts during Bike to Work Week Fraser Valley 2010, according to organizers. Bike to Work Week Fraser Valley (BTWWFV) participants cycled 10,681 kilometres and saved 2,376 kilograms of greenhouse gases during BTWWFV 2010, which ran May 31 to June 6. Chilliwack General Hospital (CGH) and Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre (ARHCC) were the largest teams who took part. And when the numbers were tallied, Chilliwack General cycled 1,097 kilometres, outcycling the ARHCC team by more 15 kilometres. The CGH team was rewarded with a pizza
party, donated by Panago, for its efforts. Chilliwack resident Jim McIsaac also took home one of the BTWW grand prizes—a Whistler bike getaway, complete with a twonight stay at the Listel Hotel and two Whistler Bike Park passes. McIsaac cycled every day during Bike to Work Week despite the rainy, cold weather. McIsaac was part of the Tyson Tigers—Tyson elementary school’s BTWWFV Team. Other notable local teams included: City of Chilliwack’s seven-person team who cycled a total of 967 kilometres; Best Western Chilliwack’s eight-person team who cycled a total of 634 kilometres; Soprema’s six-person team who cycled a total of 424 kilometres; and Ministry of Transportation’s two-person team who cycled a total of 370 kilometres.
Just before Memorial Day, in a nod to the traditional start of summer road trip season, the New York Times Room for Debate blog invited eleven road safety experts to answer whether the United States should be working harder to reduce fatalities from crashes—the number while trending downward “still hovers around 37,000 fatalities a year”—and to identify the one thing that could achieve this.
THE ROAD RULES
Fundamentally, argues one, our tolerance stems from having “built our communities for cars, not people.” Starting in the 1930’s, “America changed the DNA of its cities in a manner that led to autocentric streets and places” that ultimately led to accessibility “almost exclusively by car.”
Plus we see ourselves as being in control of our individual “crash” destiny. Studies show that drivers know about unsafe driving behaviours but nevertheless choose to engage in them and also find it easy to blame “the drunk or careless driver saying it can’t happen to me.”
Cedric Hughes Barrister & Solicitor
The first question, clearly rhetorical, begs analysis of the thornier issue noted by almost all of the bloggers of our seeming “societal willingness” to tolerate such numbers. As one blogger put it: were such numbers “the result of “disease, contagion or environmental disaster people would be marching in the streets and raising money door to door.” Another highlights the scale of the problem by comparing the fatalities for each month to the “same number of people who were killed on 9/11.” Recognizing that we distinguish road fatalities from other causes of death and react differently to them is at the heart of the notion of there being a ‘tolerance’.
Our tolerance stems from courtesy and deference to competing interests: of the telecommunications industry, of the automakers, and even of the distillers and food service interests.” We tolerate lack of driving skillfulness “in service to the most American notion of universal mobility” and while generally favouring health and safety, “dislike [any] restrictions on personal freedom or comfort.”
The bloggers offer a number of explanations:
Some link tolerance to character shortcomings:
Above all, we accept these tragedies as “the cost we pay for the mobility we enjoy.” We seem psychologically able to tolerate a certain number of deaths—the cost—and collectively will drive recklessly until the number exceeds the limit of our tolerance—the cost becomes too high.
We lack the stomach for the fight to make the changes that would really work. We lack vision: “many of us haven’t realized that we can do far better.” And our tolerance is a manifestation of our collective unwillingness to take responsibility for our own actions and to make safety “Priority No. 1.”
But we also don’t see the ‘big picture’. Crashes “happen in small numbers, are geographically dispersed and aren’t considered headline-grabbing news.” Taken one by one, crash fatalities and injuries are comparatively small, discrete tragedies that are “all too easy to ignore.”
To read the eleven answers in their entirety, google ‘New York Times Room for Debate’ and search ‘Do We Tolerate Too Many Traffic Deaths?’ Cedric Hughes L.L.B. Leslie McGuffin L.L.B.

Staying grounded with coffee I
n the immortal words of Richard Nixon, “I am not a crook.” (You can imagine me here with my head hunched between my shoulders, brows furrowed and sweaty upper lip quivering into the camera, as I waggle middle and index fingers on both hands in dual gestures of “peace.”) But I have a confession to make, nonetheless: I’ve been stealing coffee grounds from the office. Worse still, I got caught. OK, it wasn’t as heinous a crime as you might be thinking. I wasn’t stealing “ground coffee” so I could take it home to make illicit brew. I was swiping “coffee grounds”—the crud left in the filter after the perker is done perking. I wasn’t committing any crime by saving perfectly good organic matter from the office kitchenette garbage can. On the contrary, I was saving the grounds from a boring and vapid future in a landfill, giving them instead a useful and important environmental role within the scenic setting of my back yard. Now, although I was doing nothing wrong, you understand, I also wasn’t really keen on getting caught spiriting them away, and becoming known among the office whispers as “the weird guy in the corner office who collects used coffee grounds.” But my real reason for secrecy
Be Our Guest was that I didn’t want to have to explain myself and my actions. I didn’t want everyone to discover my secret, as I feared that would open the door for others to start hoarding coffee grounds for themselves, thus limiting the available supply for me to tap into. You see, I figure I’m going to need about two gallons of used (the fresh ones won’t do) coffee grounds this year. They’re for my carrots. I can’t remember who first told me, but somewhere in my past, I was told that old coffee grounds are effective in fending off carrot flies. Those who keep vegetable gardens hereabouts—especially those who try to do so without dosing their future table fare with an array of deadly poisons—will have cringed at the mere mention of those dastardly little pests. It’s not the flies that are the problem, technically, but their eggs, which turn into maggots, which crawl around inside the carrot root, creating little tunnels that blacken and hasten rot. Once the flies have laid their
eggs, there’s nothing to be done— the maggots will hatch, and the carrots are lost. Carrot fly maggots can destroy an entire row of healthy carrots in days. So the trick is to keep the flies away from the carrots—and that’s where the coffee grounds come in: carrot flies do not like coffee (too bad, Starbucks and Timmy’s, you’ll have to expand your market elsewhere). Indeed, carrot flies despise coffee so much that it will deter them from approaching even their favourite egg-laying places. Or so I was told. And it seems to work. No guarantees here, you understand, but it has seemed to work for me when I’ve tried it. Before your baby carrot plants are big enough to house those miserable fly babies, sprinkle a light layer of old coffee ground over the row. Keep sprinkling some fresh (old) grounds on the row every week or so until the carrots are ready to harvest. No pesticides, and no pests— it’s win-win. And the carrots seem to like the coffee and put more effort into growing big and strong and delicious—for which I reward them by throwing them, live, into a pot of boiling water at the end of the season! ◗ Bob Groeneveld’s is the editor of the Langley Advance.
he federal government’s push to kill the long gun registry is irrational. The private member’s bill to abolish the controversial database, widely supported by Conservatives and by a handful of opposition MPs, will achieve nothing beyond buying a few rural votes. As its critics are quick to point out, the registry—basically an electronic list—cost taxpayers a mind-boggling $1 billion to create. True, this is as inexcusable as it is incomprehensible, but it is not by itself a reason to end the project. At this point, the registry costs just $3-to-4 million annually to maintain—peanuts by federal standards. Its death will save that relatively small sum, but it will not recoup the initial outlay. It will just mean that, rather than a billion-dollar database, that initial outlay will have bought us nothing. Police in B.C. have made it clear they want the registry to stay. Officers here search it close to 3,000 times daily in the course of their work. Surely, as the frontline workers most likely to come face to face with a gun on the job, they are best positioned to judge the registry’s value—and in their estimation it’s worthwhile. The only people who adamantly oppose the database are gun owners themselves or the ideologues who support them. Registering a gun is no more onerous or unfair than registering a vehicle—some people just don’t want to do it. The registry is being killed for no other reason than to appease this group. There is nothing in it for the rest of us except an erosion of public safety.
In praise of Lekstrom
hen provincial Liberal cabinet minister Blair Lekstrom resigned from cabinet (kissing goodbye to tens of thousands of dollars in pay and perks) on Friday, he did what few politicians ever do—he listened to what his constituents were telling him. People in his riding told him they either hated the HST or hated the sneaky way it was implemented.

Put busing fees on hold for now
Editor: To: Corinne McCabe, superintendent, School District No. 33. I recently received a letter from School District No. 33 addressed to the parents/guardians of students requiring busing next school year. The letter stated that a $200 fee for each student was being implemented for the 2010/2011 school year in order to offset the budget deficit. Furthermore, the fee must be paid in full or arrangements made by June 30, 2010 or the school district will conclude that the student does not require busing for the school year. The letter also stated that an application could be submitted to waive the fees if the family claimed financial hardship. Asking parents to come up with $200 per child by the end of the month or risk losing their spot is unreasonable. Asking taxpayers to take on yet another increase is unreasonable. Some parents will apply for the hardship waiver but many parents will not apply for personal reasons instead they will drive their children or arrange for someone else to drive them. At a time when we are trying to teach our children to take environmental responsibility this is not a good example. The students may need to come to school earlier or stay later to accommodate work schedules. The safety risks involved are of grave concern to parents particularly for younger children. In addition to the financial concerns, the deadline for payment, the environment and significant safety concerns, I am concerned that parents were not given any options for partial ridership. I know there were several public meetings regarding how to best meet the budget shortfall. I don’t believe this is the best way to help alleviate budgetary concerns. I feel as though this is being pushed through at a time when PAC, DPAC and school board meetings are finished for this school year. I respectfully request that the school district put the busing fee on hold until parents can bring their con-
Strahl’s poll questioned Editor: Most residents of the Chilliwack Fraser Canyon received the latest unofficial poll from Chuck Stahl’s office. These monthly brochures highlight a main issue of pressing importance to the Conservative government and provide an opportunity for people to voice their concerns. Sounds democratic right? The catch is that the issue is handpicked by the local Conservative MP. What has he chosen as this month’s pressing issue? One would think, in the wake of the worst environmental oil leak the world has seen, the brochure would focus on our growing concern over offshore oil and gas drilling. After all, the Conservative government ended the moratorium on drilling with the plan of opening up our Pacific coast to this extremely risky industry. It would stand to reason that a poll surrounding this important decision is timely. No such luck. Even braver yet, a carefully worded, of course, poll which focused on government expenditures may be warranted given the frivilous costs associated with the upcoming G8/G20 Summit. Now I’m not suggesting that Strahl come right out and ask if the government should be spending money to build a fake
indoor lake while many of our real lakes are left endangered, but perhaps he could ask his electorate if they feel the Conservatives are on the right track in terms of government spending. Nope. Not even close. Rather, Strahl’s question of the month is “Should you have to be bilingual to sit on Canada’s Supreme Court?” Recall the Supreme Court is comprised of nine appointed judges, who may render service until the age of 74. Currently eight of the nine of the judges profess bilingual capabilities. Not to belittle the issue but to put it into perspective, the question as to whether a Supreme Court judge must be bilingual as part of his or her job requirement is not on the hearts and minds of working families. In fact, I’d hazard a guess that this question of language requirement has been posed simply to distract from the bigger issues— issues that are sadly being ignored. My thought on this misguided monthly pick is that in reality, the biggest issue weighing on the minds of local families is how they are going to afford the HST which is about to come into effect next month. The success of the anti-HST petition spells this out loud and clear. The Conservatives could have saved the cost of postage and paper, this month’s “Have your say!” has already been done and the answer is: No, the citizens of B.C. don’t support unfair taxation. That’s this month’s real issue to raise in Ottawa. Gwen O’Mahony federal NDP candidate
HST madness must be stopped
Editor: We are being told that the HST is “revenue neutral,” meaning that they are simply combining the GST five per cent and the PST seven per cent and implementing a tax of 12 per cent. In point of fact, if this were the case, the voting public would be fine with it. However, this is not the case and regardless of benefits to small business, we the voting public are being taxed an additional seven per cent to assist the province to payback the deficits they have run up with their mismangement of tax dollars. It is very difficult to believe that there is a benefit to consumers who must, as of July 1, 2010, pay an additional seven per cent on newspapers, certain school supplies, magazines, energy star windows, thermal insulation, weather stripping and caulking, First-Aid kits, smoke detectors less than $250, food producing plants for the garden (tomatoes, plums, apples, etc.), household moving services, adult- sized clothing for children, shoe repair, tailoring services, dry cleaning, used adult clothing under $100, snack foods, restaurant meals, alcoholic beverages, catering and event planning, basic cable TV, residential phones, appliance repairs, plumbing and electrical repair and/or maintenance, lawn care, snow removal, house cleaning, computer repairs, taxi rides, camping sites, air, rail and bus travel, vehicle parking fees, real estate commissions, massage therapy, over the counter medications, vitamins, sports events tickets, movie tickets, sports safety helmuts, golf memberships, driving range fees, gym memberships, ballet, karate, trampoline, hockey or soccer lessons, live theatre tickets, bicycles, museum and art gallery admissions, ski lift passes, music concerts, adult ski gloves for kids, adult ski boots for kids, children’s ski boots, hall rentals, music or video downloads for MP3, funeral services, fitness trainers, hair stylists, esthetic services (manicures, pedicures), accounting services, interior
design services, wedding planning, veterinarian services, cigarettes, cigars, tobacco, and nicotine replacement products. That list is what is causing the hot collars among taxpayers. This is a tax grab of an additional seven per cent for the province alone, that is being added to our costs of living on a daily basis as of July 1, and we will never see a seven per cent reduction in any costs to us. The vast majority of taxpayers are not eligible for any tax rebates, so to say that is an added bonus when those who are eligible have been receiving PST and GST rebates all along is once again a misnomer. Is it any wonder that the Liberal party is going down come the next election and unfortunately the only other option will be Carol James and the NDP, which will most definitely not be any better. It is time the Conservatives ramped up their provincial candidates and got the ball rolling to stop the madness. This tax must be stopped and re-visited by referendum or recall.

Oil disaster was IMPORTED NEW foretold in Bible YORK STEAKS Editor: “And the sea was also gone.” When I watch the continued tragedy unfolding with the oil spill I can not help but to think of this above quote from the Bible. It very accurately foretells future events many of which are happening right before our eyes: earthquakes, wars, famines, pestilences. “The earth groans,” and “the seas roar.” Pertaining to the devastating oil leak, is this why John wrote in Revelation, “And the sea was also gone.” Man is destroying it. Perhaps. Indeed this oil company was extremely negligent and began drilling when there were still great risks involved. And now we see the result of their very careless and possibly criminal actions. The sea is poisoned and thus marshes and sea and land animals and peoples livelihoods are being destroyed. Kathleen McCune Chilliwack

hat would you do if you had one billion dollars? Imagine it, one billion dollars in your bank account right now. For years people have daydreamed about what their life would be like if they won the lottery. Many people have bought lotto tickets in hopes of a great windfall that would perhaps give them the security they always wanted, and make some of their wildest dreams come true. Recently, I asked a large group of people what they would do with one billion dollars and got a variety of answers. Some said they would purchase dream homes in various destinations in the world. Some talked of boats, world travel and

sports cars. Someone said they would purchase a hockey team. Some talked about travelling the globe and visiting every nation. On the flip side, there were certain people who had less selfish plans on how to spend their winnings. Some said they would give it all to a trusted charity of some kind. Others said they would give to missionary or humanitarian work in the Third World. Some took joy in the idea of being a real-life Santa Claus. The idea of looking around for families and individuals in great need of housing, or education, and being the one to bless them with a significant financial gift with no strings
attached brought feelings of great joy to people. Some had ideas of putting the money away for future generations—to deny the pleasures of spending it in their own lifetime—to ensure the prosperity of their children and their grandchildren. While it is easy to see how much value one billion dollars has, I wonder how much value can be placed on your life? Jesus, the famous and always controversial Rabbi, made a bold statement about the value of a human life: “For whoever desires to save his own life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what profit is it to a man if he

gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?” Economically speaking, this saying implies that a single life is worth much more than one billion dollars. The value of one human life, with its potential, its influence and experience, is worth more than all the money in all the earth. Granted, there are many who see their life on this planet as a relatively insignificant blip on the radar screen of history. I submit to you, that your life is worth more than the whole world.

InterFit can bring new freedom
Awareness lacking when it comes to adapted sports BY TYLER OLSEN email@example.com
nya McRae never dreamed of rushing down a snowy mountain on a single ski, the wind whipping her hair. Having contracted polio when she was four, growing up in Taiwan, “the ocean and the sandy beach was my playground,” she says. “I didn’t touch or see snow until my late 20s.” Today McRae needs a cane to walk but regularly streaks down Lower Mainland mountains on a monoski with Vancouver Adapted SnowSports. “That experience being on top of a snowy mountain it’s, I don’t know how to describe it,” she says. A friend offers: “it’s exhilarating,” a sentiment with which McRae agrees. Now McRae, a local classical music teacher, wants to bring the excitement of physical activity to other disabled would-be athletes in Chilliwack by launching a local branch of the Integrated Fitness Society (InterFit). InterFit is a North Vancouver nonprofit that aims to provide equipment and opportunities to disabled people and seniors who find it difficult or impossible to exercise on their own. While Chilliwack touts itself as paradise for outdoor recrea-
Integrated Fitness Society (InterFit) president Brian Bell is assisted by two volunteers during a hike in North Vancouver. Bell is teaming with locals Anya McRae and Alexander Patton to bring InterFit to Chilliwack. tion enthusiasts, disabled athletes like McRae have had to travel to Vancouver or Kelowna to get up close to nature. That travel is difficult when you have a disability so McRae, volunteers like Alexander Patton, and InterFit’s president Brian Bell, want to bring the activities closer to Chilliwack. “There are no programs at all but
we have very beautiful nature here,” says McRae. “The awareness here in the Fraser Valley is very lacking about adapted sports.” The aim is to replicate the success of InterFit in Vancouver, where a core of 40 people and more than 60 volunteers organized 70 individual disabled hikes. Hikers use either a trail rider, which functions like a sled, or one
of Bell’s custom-designed off-road wheelchairs, which features rugged mountain bike wheels, a hydraulic suspension and plenty of steel. McRae will focus on the outdoor opportunities while Patton, who works at the Landing Leisure Centre, hopes to connect young disabled fitness buffs with existing leisure centre facilities.
The goal is to provide opportunities that most able-bodied Chilliwack residents take for granted. Both Bell and McRae said a disability can create a sense of cabin fever and foster depression. But the excitement that comes from exploring a new trail can provide an adrenaline rush that can last for weeks. “For many people, life kind of stops at the end of the pavement, so to be able to go out on a trail and be back in nature, it’s important and fantastic,” said Bell, who was paralyzed in a mountain biking accident 12 years ago. InterFit Chilliwack hopes to build from long trips along the Rotary Trail—the off-road chair makes longer trips much easier—to other previously unaccessible mountain hikes. McRae has her eyes set on Teapot Hill, above Cultus Lake, but she eventually wants to sit atop Mount Cheam, with the Fraser Valley spread before her. InterFit is already attracting community support, said McRae. The Youth Services program at Chilliwack Community Services has expressed interest in teaming up for hikes and InterFit is in talks to access two school district-owned trail riders. Now they just need volunteers and disabled partners. McRae will lead a public music recital to officially announce InterFit Chilliwack June 19 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Salvation Army Church. The music has been chosen to emphasize InterFit’s mission. The public and anyone interested in volunteering or benefitting from the organization’s mission is urged to attend.

Back on the pitch BY TYLER OLSEN email@example.com
fter a scheduling quirk left them on the sidelines for nearly a month, Chilliwack FC’s Pacific Coast Soccer League women’s premier squad returns to action Saturday determined to make a push for the playoffs. Bruce Errington’s U-21 side takes on the undefeated Whitecaps Prospects Saturday at Townsend Park before travelling to North Vancouver to face the NSGSC Eagles Sunday. CFC has won three of its first five games and currently sits fifth in the league, although it has played two to four games less than all other teams. Errington said the break was not entirely unwelcome, with several women—most notably key midfielders Chelsea Brotherston and Megan Webster—nursing injuries left over from the college winter season. “It’s always tough when you don’t have a lot of games to look forward to,” said Errington. But if CFC’s 1-1 tie in a friendly with the University of British Columbia’s women’s team last weekend is any indication, the locals have the legs to sprint into the playoff picture. “The girls are looking a lot fitter, getting back into the swing of things.” Errington was not satisfied with his team’s middling start to the season, which included convincing wins over Okanagan Whitecaps FC but losses to rivals NSGSC Eagles and Fraser Valley Action. Those two teams sit right above Chilliwack in the PCSL standings and CFC will likely have to vault past one of them to make the four-team playoff round. Errington has been impressed with his
defence and goaltending, and especially with the play of new centre-back Rachelle Broom. “She brings a lot of competitiveness to the game . . . she does very well in the air.” But while the back line and keeper Chantelle Biagioni have been stingy, allowing just three goals all year—no Robert Green shenanigans here—Errington wants to see his players start capitalizing on their chances. “We’ve struggled with our finishing as of late, we have not been as good as we could be around the opponents 18-yard box,” he told the Times. “The last few weeks we’ve been working on a lot of finishing and trying to improve on that.” Four goals from Danika Snook have led the way so far for the locals and Errington will hope the supporting cast starts to put the ball in the back of the net. Chilliwack will need to be fantastic at both ends of the park on Saturday if it hopes to stymie the high-flying Whitecap Prospects. Made up of the very best of the Lower Mainland’s young women soccer players, the Whitecaps have destroyed their opponents so far this year, potting 48 goals while allowing just three in eight games. Chilliwack played the Prospects tight last year, hanging on for a narrow 2-1 loss at home, and Errington is hoping his squad can muster a similar display this weekend. Even more important will be Chilliwack’s showdown with the Eagles Sunday in North Vancouver. “The North Shore on Sunday, that’ll be a big game for us,” he said. “That’s really a six-point game.” ◗ Chilliwack takes on the Whitecaps Prospects Saturday at 2 p.m. at Townsend Park.

Divide and conquer
Q: I have a rhubarb patch in a 12-inch raised bed. I started out with three plants and they kept multiplying. Now I have a dozen but they are very spindly. What can I do? Joan Coffey E-mail A: Your rhubarb plants are overcrowded and possibly undernourished. They need digging up and dividing. It’s a job for a sharp spade and good muscles because rhubarb has enormous, deep roots. You may have to slice through to divide them. An axe can help if the spade isn’t sharp enough. There are always deeper bits of root that won’t come up. That’s normal. The divisions for replanting should be cleaned up of any old brown bits left over from previous harvestings. It would be best to renovate the bed by digging in composted manure before replanting. A yearly topdressing of more composted manure will keep up the
Green Thumb nutrition level. This can be done either in spring when harvesting is over or in fall or winter when rhubarb has gone dormant for the year. Q: We did a yard reno last fall and dug up many tulips, which I planted in pots. They bloomed this spring and have now died back in the pots. I plan to put them back in the ground. Will it be okay to leave them in pots until the fall and then plant them. Or should I dig them up and keep them in my garage until fall. Or is there another alternative? Bev Pearson Coquitlam A: Storing your tulips in pots is fine but they must be in a very, very dry place.
The old-time gardeners routinely dug up tulips after flowering, stored them in a sheltered spot until the leaves finished dying down then stored them under cover. They replanted them in fall and, I suspect, did most of the fertilizing then. But I do think you should dig your tulips out of the pots when the leaves have died down, take a good look at them before returning them to storage in the pots. Any diseased or rotted bulbs should be discarded. Also many tulips (especially the large-flowered exotic ones) split up into little bulblets after flowering. Some tulips will have a very small main bulb surrounded by tiny mini bulbs while others will have nothing but tiny bulbs. These bulblets could develop into big, flowering tulip bulbs—but only if you grow them in perfect conditions for a few years. This is difficult to do because our climate is far too wet for
most tulips. Tulips come from Turkish hillsides where the average rainfall is similar to the Okanagan. Winters are very cold and summers hot and dry. Conditions in a plant’s native land are always a good indication how a plant should be treated. Q: We planted fennel and cilantro earlier this spring and they are now growing out of control. We can’t make enough recipes or give enough away at the rate they are growing. Is it safe to cut them down to a smaller size or should we wait it out? Leila Waslen E-mail A: It’s fine to cut fennel and cilantro back to a smaller size. But be sure to leave some of the smaller leafy stems so the roots have some nourishment while they reshoot. ◗ Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions Send them to her via email@example.com.

New toilets go high-tech
CHILL OUT CHILL-AIR
CENTRAL AIR CONDITIONING
Installed from $
The main benefit of macerating systems is that they allow homeowners to install a bathroom anywhere in their homes without the need for a rough-in, and regardless of the positioning of existing plumbing lines. Because these systems do not require below-floor drainage, they reduce the labour costs and time required to install a bathroom. Thanks to the addition of
vibration absorbers, specialized rubber interior components and a quieter, more powerful motor, this new generation of macerator is virtually silent, producing less than 35 decibals of sound when operating. ◗ More information on these toilet systems is available online at www.saniflo. ca or toll-free at 1-800-3635874.

(NC)—Touted as “the original plumbing solution,” macerating toilet systems have widely been viewed as a functional, but noisy alternative for situations where installing a conventional toilet would be impossible or cost-prohibitive. These systems have come a long way since being introduced to the Canadian market more than 20 years ago and new models are coming into favour with consumers looking to increase the number of washrooms in their homes. A new generation of high-tech macerating toilets, including Quiet Range models by Saniflo, have upped the ante by eliminating much of the sound produced by the units. “The development of the Quiet Range represents a major technological improvement compared to previous models,” says Daniel Cayer, national sales manager at Saniflo Canada. “The Quiet Range line addresses consumers’ requests for a quieter product by incorporating state-of-the-art noise reduction technology as well as improved performance and a sleek new design.”

Pain-free gardening tips
every 15 to 20 minutes, take short walks and stretch. ◗ Planning makes a difference – Alternate a difficult task with an easy one and keep your work in front of your body with your arms in your easy zone, between the level of your hips and shoulders, while moving with your work. ◗ Manage your aches – To relieve muscle pain and soreness consider taking an overthe-counter analgesic, like Tylenol Back Pain or Tylenol Muscle Aches & Body Pain. ◗ Use props – There is no need to spend a lot of money on expensive equipment. Using a hot water bottle and foam pad when kneeling can help prevent knee injuries. A bucket turned upside down makes a great little stool for those extensive weeding sessions. Additional tips to manage pain can be found online at www.livingwell.ca.

(NC)—With warm, sunny weather finally here, Canadians can finally enjoy one of their favourite pastimes—gardening—and its many benefits. With today’s hectic world revolving around deadlines and obligations, gardening allows us to escape from busy schedules, lower blood pressure and reduce stress. “Believe it or not, gardening is proven to be a great form of exercise, burning up to 300 calories per hour!” says Karen Webb, physiotherapist and author. “At the same time, all that watering, planting, raking, and weeding without proper preparation can increase susceptibility to muscle strain and injury.” To prevent gardening-related injuries, Webb recommends this approach: ◗ Take breaks – Quite often, people spend hours focusing on the same activity and staying in the same awkward position without any breaks.

Amazing Vipers unbeaten The Chilliwack Vipers continued its unbeaten run in its last tournament this year before provincials last weekend in Fleetwood. Despite featuring several A and B rep teams and a B.C. Summer Games team from the Kootenays, the Vipers extended its season record to 27-0. The Vipers won their first game by mercyruling Langford 13-1 in four short innings. Moving on, the Vipers faced a strong combined Richmond All-star team. While Chilliwack won the game 12-5, it took amazing pitching by Ryan Kaplanis and clutch hitting by Shane Tilbury, Carson Chambers and Santana Mckay to seal the final five runs to kick the mercy rule into effect. Game three of the round robin had the Vipers facing powerhouse Sooke. It was a pitchers battle in more ways then one as Vipers pitcher Brendon Donegan hit a threerun over-the-fence home run in the first inning to give Chilliwack the lead. He then went five innings, striking out 14 and giving up only one run on two hits to lead the Vipers to a 3-1 victory.
The final round robin game was a battle for first place in the standings between Chilliwack and Fleetwood. Tied 2-2 in the last inning, fleetwood decided to walk around Vipers power hitter Thomas Bunn. The strategy failed when Parker Hendsbee hit his first over-the-fence grand slam to give the Vipers a 6-2 win and seal first place. In the medal round, the Vipers once again faced Langford. In a mirror image of the first game Austin Unger provided clutch hitting to give the Vipers a 5-1 win and a spot in the gold medal game. Playing their second back to back game in two days, the Vipers showed no signs of being tired. Facing Richmond, the Vipers opened up the hitting and were once again led by a Parker Hendsbee grand slam. The Vipers scored runs from the top to the bottom of the line up to claim their third tournament gold. Up next for the Vipers is the provincial championships where they hope to turn their stellar record into a berth at the Western Canadian Championships in Calgary.
A new blossom
Carlson selected by Selects
Chilliwack lacrosse player has been chosen for an elite touring Lower Mainland team. Sardis secondary student Brett Carlson will suit up for the Burnaby Mountain Selects Senior Elite squad this summer. The ten-week summer program for Burnaby Mountain’s Senior Team will be highlighted by a trip to Baltimore, Md., July 19-26 to compete in the nationally renowned Champ Camp. Teams are selected to compete at Champ Camp by invitation only with an emphasis on assembling the top high school aged club teams in North America. This year will be the first time that the Selects have attended Champ Camp, with Burnaby Mountain becoming the first program to be selected
from Western Canada in the tournament’s 21-year history. Listed as one of the top recruiting events by Inside Lacrosse (ESPN), the four-day event will take place July 2225 at Johns Hopkins University (NCAA Div. I) with teams competing for the coveted Champ Camp National Championship. Carlson and his teammates will experience college life first-hand as athletes are housed in the university dorms on campus at Towson University. In addition to four days of competition, the team will also tour the campuses of top NCAA Division I lacrosse programs Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland. After a week of high caliber lacrosse, the Selects will end their tour with a day trip to Manhattan, New York.

Central Community Park will again host the Coast Capital Savings Party in the Park starting on July 9 and running each Friday from 5 to 10 p.m. until Aug. 27. Kathy Funk, executive director of the Downtown BIA says, “Due to the overwhelming support of corporate sponsorships, we are able this year to expand all areas of this great event.” More entertainment acts have been added to the main stage under the leadership of Chilliwack’s own Trevor McDonald.

This year the party will feature 14 high school students who have had lessons in face-painting and who have volunteered to help us out.

To date, we have over 40 vendors representing everything from fresh produce, arts, jewelry and some great new ethnic and Canadian food vendors.” Last year partial proceeds from the booth rentals went to Community Ser vices Family Place. Watts says “We are committed to giving back to this great downtown community.” Bring your lawn chairs, family and friends and enjoy this free downtown community event. This year the grand finale on August 27 will include O’Connor’s Sunset Cruisin’ in the Park car show. ◗ Applications for vendors and more information is available online at www. downtownchilliwack.com.

News BY PAUL J. HENDERSON firstname.lastname@example.org
or those who have followed the story, allegations against former City of Chilliwack senior staffer and Cultus Lake Park Board chair Grant Sanborn are nothing new. But Sanborn is again in the news as the fraud and forgery allegations against the former city approving officer were contained in information used to obtain a warrant used by the RCMP’s commercial crime squad to search his Chilliwack office, according to a CBC report.
Allegations led to search warrant “’I worked in the city, I have lots of contacts there, we will be able to do it,’” Fridriksdottir said she was told by Sanborn. “‘It’s a cakewalk’ he said.” But after months of unreturned phone calls about her Young Road property, Fridriksdottir decided to contact the city directly to see the status of her application. There she was told that not only was the application never made, and the $650 application fee never paid, but that she didn’t need to pay Sanborn to
Those allegations are connected to Sanborn’s current role as a private consultant specialzing in Agricultural Land Reserve applications. Landowner Peggy Fridriksdottir paid Sanborn $1,670.98 in late 2007 for an ALR subdivision application she says he never made and, that she found out later, would have never had a hope. Fridriksdottir also said that in July 2007 an RCMP officer with the commercial-crime section told her that police were investigating Sanborn’s business dealings.
tell her that. The CBC report stated that the information used to obtain the search warrant alleges that Chilliwack farmer Butch Goertzen had a similar experience with Sanborn; that Sanborn forged a document by cutting and pasting from other letters to convince Goertzen that the application had been filed with the Agricultural Land Commission. Another contentious property Sanborn was allegedly involved with was once owned by Alexander
Kosub, a retired high school teacher. Kosub asked his son Geoff to talk to Sanborn, who dismissed the likelihood of ALR exclusion. But then in an ALR removal application in July, 2005, Sanborn said he was acting on behalf of Kosub and Butterscotch Holdings, aVancouver company that eventually purchased the property off Kosub for $400,000 and flipped it for $2 million. None of the allegations have been brought up in court and Sanborn faces no charges. He denied any wrongdoing when contacted on camera in the CBC report Wednesday.

John Vissers shows a satellite image of the region at the rally out front of Metro Vancouver’s waste plan meeting. He showed the image to illustrate the funnel shape of the Fraser Valley.
Unpredictable fuel WASTE, from page 1 Committee and Alexandria Mitchell, an Abbotsford high school student and an environmental activist. “We should be talking about closing down the Burnaby incinerator rather than talking about new incineration,” Gaetz told the crowd of 50-orso that gathered outside. “Garbage is one of the most toxic, complex, unpredictable fuels on the planet,” Ross said. West, who has attended many of the other Metro consultation meetings, said the proponents are doing a good job of making a sales pitch, something with which many inside the meeting quickly agreed. To start the meeting, both Jackson and Moore spoke to the audience of more than 150 about Metro’s plans. The plan is a draft, they are seeking comment, and the final version will be presented to Environment Minister Barry Penner by the fall. Things were mostly polite as Metro’s corporate communications director David Hocking presented the plan.Thatis,untilhesuggested there was community support for WTE pointing to a study that found 63 per cent of Metro residents support WTE and 37 per cent of Fraser Valley residents did. He then mentioned another study had produced different results, but he declined to mention what those results were. “This is a sales pitch,” called out Chilliwack resident Jim Phelps, interrupting Hocking. “This is pure sales job, nothing else.” The rest of the presentation compared landfills to mechanical biological treatment to a WTE incineration plant. “Waste-to-energy clearly outperforms the other two
options,” was the conclusion. There were three main points pushed by Metro in the plan: Air quality will not be affected by a WTE plant even though, if Metro can reach its diversion targets, the plant will be required to burn more than a million tonnes of garbage a year by 2015; there would be negative net air emissions because the energy generated through WTE would replace fossil fuels; and finally, that WTE is the cheapest in the long-run, something disputed by Gaetz and City of Chilliwack staff research. Chilliwack MLA John Les was also unmoved by the presentation. “The more I listen, the more skeptical I’m becoming,” he said to the panel to much applause from the crowd. “People in the Fraser Valley are not interested in incineration.” Glen Thompson of Friends of the Chilliwack River Valley also did not trust the information provided by Metro. “We’re not being given the full story and for that reason I don’t trust this panel,” he said. “I think your plan stinks.” Cache Creek’s mayor John Ranta suggested the entire draft plan was based on a false assumption, namely, that the Cache Creek landfill can’t expand. In fact, the environment ministry issued an environmental assessment certificate for the proposed landfill extension in January. “I’ve never heard such a smoke and mirrors show in all my life,” Ranta said. Gaetz has called on the public to continue to submit comments to Metro and to Penner. The deadline for the submission of comments on Metro’s plan is July 14 and the plan can be reviewed at www. metrovancouver.org.

Final fairy tale ready T
he Youth Theatre Department of the Creative Outlet Performing Art Studio in Sardis is putting the finishing touches on the latest production in its fairy tale theatre series (Treasure Island November 2007; Hansel & Gretel May 2008, Robin Hood June 2009). Fairy tales typically feature folkloric characters like fairies, goblins, elves, giants and magic or enchantments. Often the story involves a far-fetched sequence of events with an ending often blessed with unusual happiness or romance. While there are no elves or goblins in Sleeping Beauty, there is a giant spider, plenty of magic and “far-fetched” is the perfect phrase to describe this delightful tall tale. A cast of 21 young people ranging in age from 12 to 24 years, some new to the theatre and others already veterans, have brought their unique talents and abundant energy to this script. Once again director Larry Hamm has steered this eclectic group of actors towards a common goal—presenting a piece of theatre that will have audience members enthralled in a world of makebelieve. “This particular script for Sleeping Beauty has a lot of silly moments,” says Hamm, “It’s hard to rehearse when your actors are on the floor laughing. Comedy is a challenge to take on and these actors are fully committed to their characters and the funny situations they find themselves in.”
Hamm also points out that apart from the talented cast and good script, it is thanks to the generous donation of time and talent by local professionals such as Sherry Fraser for special effect makeup and Jamea Lister’s sought-after lighting design and technical expertise that gives the show its polish. The theatre department is run as a teaching program for young actors. The opportunity to work alongside university-level actors, in an incredible facility with professionals in their field gives them a sense of what may lie ahead if they continue to study and perform theatre in the future. The Creative Outlet has always selected stories that appeal to young audiences, encouraging families to bring their children out to experience the wonders of live theatre. Little girls will see Briar Rose complete with her flowing blonde curls and beautiful pink gown and they will love the endearing little witches. The boys will love the larger than life spider, smart-talking cat and of course the battle scenes. In the end true love prevails and they live happily ever after. Sleeping Beauty opens this weekend at UFV theatre, Chilliwack Campus: June 18, 19, 25 and 26 at 7 p.m., with two Sunday matinees June 20 and 27 at 2 p.m. ◗ Tickets are $9 reserved seating available by phone 604-858-0808 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

BERG (nee Titilah), Mary November 10, 1922 - June 11, 2010
It’s with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother Mary Berg in the Bevan Lodge, Abbotsford on Friday, June 11, 2010. Mary was born on the family farm near Ormiston, Saskatchewan before the family moved to Crane Valley, Saskatchewan in 1925. Predeceased by her husband of 53 years, Elmer Berg, in 1998. Mary is survived by her three children: Carol (Harold) Caine of Calgary, Alberta, Roy (Linda) Berg of Mission, B.C., Maryann (Don) Nicholson of Chilliwack, B.C., grandchildren: Tom Raycove, Robi (Brian) Thompson, Kimberly (Peter) Hutchinson, David (Rosalene) Berg, Geordy (Ilana) Mullin and ﬁve great-grandchildren. Mary loved to dance, play golf, crochet, and participate in a wide variety of activities. She was known for her sense of humour and willingness to have fun, and if someone needed to give a speech in front of a crowd she was always willing. She was actively involved in many organizations including a term as president of the Senior Vets Association of Chilliwack. While those activities were important to her, her family and friends were the most important. Mary will be greatly missed by all her family and friends. Thank you to all of the staff at Bevan Lodge and Birchwood for their help and support. A Celebration of Mary’s life will be held in the Senior Vet’s hall in Chilliwack on June 21 from 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. In lieu of ﬂowers donations may be made to the charity of your choice.

June 20 - 26
Cancer June 21-July 22: Your energy will start growing soon! (Monday onward.) The four weeks ahead are your time to wield your clout, attract others, interview, ask favours, make major changes in direction and set important projects in motion. In all this, you will have to be more diplomatic than usual, especially this week – huge opportunities might face you, but they depend at least partly on the goodwill or co-operation of others. (If you’re an artist, writer, this –now through 2024 – is a time of potential fame.) Romantic atmosphere Monday/Tuesday. Those opportunities/oppositions Friday/Saturday.
Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The weeks ahead (especially this one) brew a change in your living circumstances and your career or social position. To some degree, you have control over this, and can “play your hand” or attempt to squelch these changes. But consider: the forces of change will only grow stronger (and inevitable) over the next 14 years, and at present change represents a great opportunity for you, can bring bright new horizons in romance, marriage, relocation, contracts and partnerships – and fame! Talk/writing’s lucky Wednesday, but if you talk too much late week you could blow a deal.
Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The weeks ahead accent relationships, opportunities and oppositions. You could meet an exciting member of the opposite sex – he/she seems quite talkative, might be “ﬂustered” by events surrounding him/her. (This would indicate that marriage is not a good long-range possibility. Be aware.) You’re like a walking destiny ﬂag this week; you’ll come into people’s lives at critical junctures. Be diplomatic, humble, not withdrawn. Be ambitious Sunday. Hopes, happiness, bright horizons Monday/ Tuesday! Take a breather Wednesday p.m. to Friday eve. You shine, attract others, Saturday.
Taurus April 20-May 20: The month ahead brings short trips, communications, details, paper (computer) work, sibling visits – a busy but not hugely important time. However, events around you will be important. You went through your major life crises in the 1980s through early 2008. Others go through theirs now, especially Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. For you, these crises affect your communications and other secondary life activities. So make adjustments in these areas, especially Monday and Thursday/Friday. Relationships excite Monday/Tuesday. Sweet luck in intimacy, ﬁnances Wednesday!
Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Retreat. Rest, lie low, contemplate, avoid the spotlight while you do four things: catch up on neglected chores or government paperwork, plan, recharge your energy reserves, and re-connect with the spiritual realm. All these, as well as your work and health areas, face big changes this week, and generally to 2024. Realize ﬂexibility is sometimes a good thing. When we aren’t charitable toward others we destroy ourselves. Your social connections and your attitude toward romance are also changing – see brightness here. The delusions/ illusions of the past decade will disappear, very soon!
Scorpio Oct.23-Nov.21:This week features change – and difﬁcult relations with a Gemini or Virgo and/ or in communications, especially legal, publishing, intellectual or long-distance communications. Consider in these areas, that Gemini or Virgo is likely right, is ﬁghting your limitations (which makes you uneasy). The change is not central – you went through your main life struggles in the 1980s to mid-’90s. It affects four areas, in order of intensity: communications, siblings; background, government; work, health; and those areas ﬁrst listed (legal, publishing, etc.) and (gentle but deep) love areas.
Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Tackle chores over the few weeks ahead. It’s humdrum, but you might as well plunge in.You’re rather insulated from the big changes going on all around you. Still, this month, especially this week, might transform work, employment, health and your relations with institutions, the government or head ofﬁce. Listen to your hunches, to the spiritual side. You often ﬁnd Gemini romantic, Virgo sexy. This week, either someone in these signs has a lot of difﬁculty, or you have difﬁculty with him/her. Be patient. Sunday’s mellow. Friendship Wednesday/ Thursday. Retreat Saturday.
Gemini May 21-June 20: Read Taurus message – you, too, have largely gone through your life’s walk of ﬁre, and your future is growing more calm. But major changes still loom, now to 2024, in ﬁnances, sex and to 2017 in friendships, romance, sports, and creative or child-related zones. All these are strongly affected this summer, particularly this week. You probably won’t see ﬁreworks, but things are changing! Take the helm of your ship, especially Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. Anyone who will not cooperate will never co-operate. Turn elsewhere. A big money change!
Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The four weeks ahead boost your popularity. The future will brighten, optimism will reign! The world has more problems than usual, all this spring/summer, but these intrigue you, you can ﬁnd opportunities “in the cracks.” Like Gemini, you’ve been through the main crises of your life, the last 12-15 years. It’s time to raise your sights – and your head! (Posture affects how others “handle” you.) A wish is likely to come true, could involve friendship or romance, creativity or children. Main accent all week: change in friendships and love. Be ready for it, respond, be happy!
Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The few weeks ahead accent life’s mysteries and depths – including sex, investments, debts, lifestyle commitments and major changes, and health. Your subconscious will ﬂoat to the surface, bring dreams, hunches. Pregnancy is possible for “eligibles.” Change will come to, or manifest via, these areas – and it will affect not only these zones, but also what (and whom) you possess, and what you earn. Dig deep, don’t be satisﬁed with surface answers. But also accept changes, especially in money, social and communications zones. Hard truths are true truths this week. Don’t invest – yet!
Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your passionate, romantic, love-oriented, creative, risk-taking side rises strongly over the next few weeks. You’ll ride a winning streak! But one you meet this week might not be a good marriage prospect. Your own marriage and/ or business partnerships might also face difﬁculties. The problem isn’t in the relationship, it involves work, health and similar practical difﬁculties (e.g., the army ships your mate out). A soul-deep, serious but blossoming change occurs this week in social connections and/or romance. Mysteries Sunday. Be ambitious Wednesday! Joy (sensual?) Saturday!
Aries March 21 - April 19: Relationships are important and potentially lucky Sunday. Talk, visit, travel or make a decision about one that has been a bit of a burden (or support!) for some years. You want to dive into the depths (sexual intimacy, ﬁnancial commitment, research, secrets, investments, big health change) Monday to Wednesday morning, but think ﬁrst. Wisdom and luck seldom go hand-inhand (ain’t that unfair, eh?) but both might combine Wednesday/Thursday. Still, major separative possibilities loom by Friday, so tread cautiously in law, love, education, international, career and family zones.
