Chopper helps put brakes on car thief
Chilliwack’s loud & proud Dutch community hoping for World Cup victory

man is in custody after a 40-minute crime spree was brought to an end by an RCMP helicopter Wednesday afternoon. It began rather innocuously at around 12:20 p.m. when a witness reported the theft of a car from a Luckakuck Way parking lot. The car, a red Plymouth Acclaim, was located by a police cruiser soon after on Vedder Road, but then the situation got interesting. When the driver pulled into a parking lot in the 5700 block of Vedder Road, the police car a c t i va t e d i t s lights in an attempt to pull over the susEB IRST pect. First reported on But the suschilliwacktimes.com pect had different ideas and, according to RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Lea-Anne Dunlop, “drove the stolen vehicle over the curb, over trees and shrubs, across the boulevard and public sidewalk and back out onto Vedder Road to evade police.” Police looked north down Vedder Road and watched the suspect leave the vehicle and begin running. The car was still moving, however, and officers remained at the scene to monitor the Plymouth as it left the right side of the road and struck a tree and brick wall fence. Dunlop said the situation could have been far worse. “His driving and his attempts to evade police were very, very

hilliwack’s large Dutch community will be yelling “Hup Holland!” this weekend as the Netherlands squares off in the World Cup final Sunday in South Africa. For the past two weeks, Chilliwack has grown steadily more orange as the Dutch have made their way through the group and knockout stages, where they knocked off powerhouse Brazil. Even the local UPS store, where brown is usually the dominant colour, has gone orange, thanks to owners Jos and Fieny Van den Boom. The Van den Booms, who immigrated from the Netherlands nine years ago, have woken up as early as 4 a.m. to watch their team in action. “We are pretty excited for Sunday,” Jos told the Times. He said he is “as confident as the Dutch always are” and that the local Dutch community is optimistic that their heroes will triumph this weekend. While Canadians of uncertain descent, like this reporter, may have a difficult time finding a rooting interest in the world’s largest sporting event, for those with roots overseas the World Cup can be a way to reconnect with one’s birth nation. While his family has been in Canada for nearly a decade now, Jos said that he feels more of an affinity for his country and its symbols— the monarchy and the soccer team—than he did when living in the Netherlands. “We are more Dutch here than we ever were in the Netherlands,” he said. “You’re more interested in what’s going on and you feel more attached to the country than you did before.” That feeling, he says, is not unique to his family nor immigrants from Holland.
Local wood baron Robert Prinse proudly flies a Dutch soccer flag behind his bike.
“The English over here are more English than over there [in Europe],” he added, noting that he still cheers for Canadian athletes in competitions against countries other Holland. Jos hoped the Netherlands would face Germany in the final and exact revenge for the 1974 Dutch loss to West Germany in that year’s championship game. For a time, that rematch looked likely. Like most keen observers, Craig Doble, who coaches with Bolton Wanderers’ international academy and who was in town for a soccer camp at Townsend field, predicted Germany to beat not just Spain, but the Netherlands in the final. And in the Klassic European Deli on
Wednesday, the game blared from speakers, employee Urusla Linau sported a hat with two German flags, and the colours of Germany and the Netherlands hung above a refrigerator. With Linau hailing from Germany and two other employees of Dutch descent there was hope that Germany would reach the final and up the tension. “To make it interesting we want the teams to be Netherlands and Germany,” said Linau. Alas it was not to be, as the Germans fell 1-0 to Spain. At Corky’s Pub, where a couple dozen fans watched the proceedings, a German fan who would only give his name as Eric said, “We See ORANJE, Page 27

Old record melts away
Briefly Envision robbed The hunt is on for a man who robbed a Chilliwack bank Wednesday afternoon. Police say a man walked into Envision Credit Union at about 3:45 p.m. Wednesday and handed a clerk a note demanding money. The man was given an undisclosed amount of cash and left the credit union. Mounties were unable to find the man, who is described as white, fivefoot-four and between 130 and 140 pounds. He had sandy blond hair with tattoos covering both arms. RCMP Forensic Identification Services attended and the police investigation is ongoing. Police have not publicly released video stills of the suspect, because they only do so when they need the public’s assistance to identify the suspect.
90-year-old temperature record crushed by heat wave BY PAUL J. HENDERSON email@example.com
n case you’ve been living in an air conditioned bubble and haven’t been outside, Wednesday and Thursday were hot. Really hot. Chilliwack broke a 90-year record on July 7 as the mercury hit 34.7C with a relative humidity

of 22 per cent (10.7 per cent above normal), according to Environment Canada volunteer weather observer Roger Pannett. “At last summer has arrived,” he said Wednesday evening. The previous record for July 7 was 32.8C recorded in 1920. Chilliwack’s weather records date back to 1881. Pannett also reminded us that the all-time temperature record in Chilliwack was set less than a year ago, on July 29, 2009, when the heat wave peaked at 38.2C with a relative humidity of 19 per cent. Thursday was forecast to be even hotter than Wednesday, but records could not be confirmed before press time as the maximum temperature for the day usually comes around 5 p.m., according to Pannett. Before Thursday, the record temperature for July 8 was 33.9C in 1905. Environment Canada forecast a high of 35C for Thursday and 33C for Friday. The forecast for the weekend is slightly cooler with sunny skies and highs of 30C on Saturday and 29C on Sunday.

Transit advocate saves city money But her ideas would cost taxpayers $5 million
BY PAUL J. HENDERSON firstname.lastname@example.org
ennifer Bigham told Chilliwack city council on Monday night that local transit is “atrocious” and that when she first witnessed the system she was “appalled.” Bigham is a transit user turned bike rider who presented a detailed report entitled “Chilliwack Transit: Are we moving forward?” to city council on Monday night. The report was based on her research and surveys completed by 500 riders. “In most cases it is faster to walk than it is to use the transit system and those using the system have no other choice,” she told council Monday. But despite the harsh words, Big-
ham was mostly constructive in her presentation to council; so much so that Mayor Sharon Gaetz thanked her for doing what an expert would have charged the city thousands of dollars. “I think we would have paid a whole whack of money to a consultant to come up with this sort of information,” Gaetz said. Bigham told council the system has problems with routes, with timing and was based on a model from 20 years ago “when the business sector was in the historic downtown core.” She talked about restructuring the system “from the ground up,” but said changes she envisioned would

cost $5 million. She compared that to the expenditures of more than $50 million on the Evans Road interchange and roundabout. Gaetz responded that the Evans Road project was funded with DCCs, that the city “can’t take money from DCCs to put into transportation,” and that $5 million would show up as a 10-per-cent tax increase to residents. Bigham also brought up the broader idea of linking to other communities and the idea of passenger rail in the Fraser Valley. Gaetz renewed the city’s longstanding rejection of the idea of light rail on the old interurban line as pro-
posed by the Rail for the Valley group. The group wants to see the old rail line between Surrey and Chilliwack used for commuter service. “At first blush this is not something attainable to the city of Chilliwack,” she told Bigham. “We would have to upgrade our rail crossings at at cost of $250,000 to $500,000.” Bigham acknowledged that ridership is low in Chilliwack, but said once a revamped system is established and proven reliable, ridership will increase considerably. But Coun. Diane Janzen disagreed. “One of the adages I’ve learned is build it and they will not necessarily come,” Janzen said.

or the second straight year a Supreme Court justice has forced a Lindell Beach resort operator to take back a trailer it sold because the placement of mobile homes on the property is illegal. Justice Brian Joyce ruled Tuesday that Lindell Beach Holiday Resort must repay George and Rita Petrelli the amount they paid for the trailer in 2007. The Petrellis had argued that they were not informed that the resort had been zoned by the regional district as a campground and that the trailer would contravene district bylaws. For his decision, Joyce relied heavily on a similar Supreme Court decision from last year between the same resort and another couple, Gwena and Mark Bahry. In that case, which Lindell Beach also lost, Justice William Grist found that, while the Bahry’s trailer was technically a “recreational vehicle” when purchased, the modifications made by Lindell Beach ownership when the home was placed on the property showed the trailer was not intended to be moved. Grist found that “The Site Agreement constitutes an illegal use under the Regional District’s bylaws, and this amounts to a fundamental breach of the contract with the plaintiffs.” Grist wrote: “The parties have produced a series of correspondence between the defendant and the Regional District. It seems clear from this that the facility the defendant operates does not conform with the Holiday Park designation under the Bylaws.” He wrapped up his finding with damning language. “This is clearly a breach,” Grist stated.
“The court could hardly be expected to find a flouting of lawful obligation, even a fairly successful one, to be otherwise.” The most recent case was a direct result of last year’s ruling, according to court documents. When the Petrellis learned of last year’s court decision, they began the legal proceedings that wrapped up Tuesday. In basing his decision on last year’s decision, Joyce said he was not convinced that there were any significant differences from last year’s case. And he took the defendants to task, writing that “There is, in my respectful view, an element of oppression in the defendant’s position of seeking to raise, once again, the same issue on which it was unsuccessful in another action involving another party who entered into a contract for the purchase and sale of a Holiday Home for placement on its property.” The owners of Lindell Beach Holiday Resort did not respond to the Times request for comment by press time. In an e-mail to the Times Frank Kelly, deputy director of planning and development at the Fraser Valley Regional District, wrote: “There is an ongoing dispute between Lindell Beach Holiday Resort Inc. and the Regional District regarding the current use of the subject property. The Regional District is currently considering proposals from the property owner. It would be inappropriate to comment further on the latter at this time.” Kelly did say, however, that the rulings in both case support the district’s interpretation of the local bylaws. “We are hopeful that these two rulings will encourage the owner to bring the property into compliance with the bylaws without the need for further litigation,” Kelly wrote.

IMW Industries owner Brad Miller, pictured here at a tour of the plant with Premier Gordon Campbell and Chilliwack-Hope MLA Barry Penner in 2009, has sold to a California-based company.
IMW sold for $125 mil
BY PAUL J. HENDERSON email@example.com
he $125 million sale of Chilliwack’s IMW Industries to a California-based company will not mean the local employer is moving nor will it lead to job losses. Quite the contrary, according to owner and president Brad Miller. “We have no intention of reducing our workforce here,” he told the Times Wednesday. “I expect we’ll see larger opportunities after the acquisition.” A long-time customer of IMW, Clean Energy Fuels Corp., which provides natural gas to alternative-fuel vehicles, has agreed to acquire IMW for $125 million in cash and stock plus a cash earn-out arrangement. IMW makes and services natural gas fuelling compressors and other related equipment sold to station operators and commercial fleets, mostly overseas. Clean Energy has used IMW compressors and other equipment for several years in many of its 200 stations across the United States. “I believe partnering with Clean Energy will launch IMW on its next stage of growth providing significant opportunities for our employees, customers and suppliers as we continue to expand our global presence in the large and rapidly growing natural gas fuelling and alternative energy sectors,” Miller said in a press release. Miller is the owner and president of IMW and after the sale will remain at the helm for at least four more years. He told the Times the natural gas market is
on an inevitable growth spurt in North America and “even a little bit in Canada” and that the quality of the local facility coupled with B.C. being one of the most competitive provinces means IMW will stay put. “I don’t see any way why we would want to leave Chilliwack,” he said. Despite the success of IMW’s business, the Canadian acceptance of natural gas has been delayed. The “vast majority” of what the company manufactures goes to China, South America and Europe. “Pretty much the rest of the world,” he said. So what’s the delay with natural gas hitting Canada? “That’s a good question, we’ve been slow to catch on,” he said. “Hopefully that’s going to change. Our natural gas prices are so low. It’s 25 per cent cleaner and 40 per cent cheaper; one of the reasons that I sold to the company that I did is because they are the biggest station installer in the U.S. so it’s a good built-in customer for us.” Clean Energy president and CEO Andrew J. Littlefair praised IMW for “aggressively” expanding while other companies “were retrenching” during the recent economic slowdown. Clean Energy, based in Seal Beach, Calif., will make an upfront payment of $15 million in cash and another $60 million in company stock. It will follow up with four annual payments of $5 million in cash and $7.5 million in stock. The company said it also will pay IMW Industries shareholders “certain percentages” of IMW’s future gross profits during the next four years.

Time is of the essence for proposed gravel pit BY PAUL J. HENDERSON firstname.lastname@example.org
he race is on in the Chilliwack River Valley between a gravel mine application and the creation of guidelines that wouldn’t allow such a project in the proposed location. The Fraser Valley Regional District will begin a public consultation process soon to get public input into the Aggregate Pilot Project (APP)—a framework initiated by the Minister of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources and guided by a committee comprised of industry, local government and ministry staff. The APP was initiated “in response to persistent and intense conflicts surrounding aggregate operations in the Fraser Valley Regional District,” according to FVRD staff. In the pilot project, areas of the district are designated green, yellow or red in terms of suitability for gravel mining. The current conflict is over the Southview Sorting application to put a 40-hectare gravel mine at Larson’s Bench in the Chilliwack River Valley. The area of the proposed mine would be designated red—unsuitable for gravel mining—if the APP were in place today. “Yes, it’s conceivable that the applicant could get in under the wire,” mining minister Randy Hawes told Province columnist Brian Lewis. “If the application meets all the criteria, then under the law we have no way of saying no. But with all concerns now being raised, we’ll certainly take a long, hard look at it.” The Friends of the Chilliwack River Valley have set a meeting with Hawes on July 12.
“We’ll be telling them that we want official protection for the recreational corridor in the Chilliwack Valley,” said Glen Thompson of the Friends. “That same night we will announce the recreational corridor zoning proposal at the official community plan meeting with the FVRD.” The mine’s opponents in the valley have expressed concern for a number of reasons, but the main issues are trucks on Chilliwack Lake Road and possible contamination of the local aquifer. A consultant for the city of Chilliwack recently reported that the proposed gravel mine poses little risk to the city’s water supply from the Sardis-Vedder aquifer, but fuel storage at the site could be a risk to water quality. The proposed site is also immediately upstream from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) Chilliwack Salmon Hatchery and Pierce Ponds restoration site. In an e-mail from hatchery manager Bob Stanton to provincial officials on June 25, Stanton said “This facility pumps up to 10,000 lpm of ground water from a large aquifer seven months of the year and lesser quantities for domestic use all year long.” Stanton’s boss Corino Salomi, area habitat and enhancement manager for DFO in the Lower Fraser Valley, told the Times last week it was too early to say whether or not DFO was concerned about the mine. “The provincial mines branch is really taking the lead on the permitting of the facility,” he said. ◗ Opponents of the gravel mine have planned a rally at the Chilliwack Fish & Game on July 15 at 7 p.m.

Armoured and dangerous
his month British Columbia became the first province to restrict the sale and possession of body armour. The introduction of the law didn’t receive much publicity and for obvious reasons: those professions that regularly use body armour are exempt from the need to apply for a permit or licence, and even the most paranoid nonprofessional is still unlikely to feel the need for armoured protection. The law won’t affect many people, and those whom it will affect don’t have much public support; the province and the law’s proponents have framed the new restrictions—those who want body armour must undergo a mandatory criminal check and apply for a permit or licence—as an attack on organized crime. Indeed, it’s hard to see how the new law will affect anyone other than gangsters, drug dealers and non-British Columbians who must apply for a 90-day permit exemption to wear their body armour for work inside this province. But on an ideological and philosophical level, and for libertarians in particular, the law should prompt some deep thought. Let’s start with the obvious. Is it right to restrict the use of an instrument that can only be used to defend oneself (assuming
Win,Lose orTy you don’t use one to play touch football)? A true libertarian would say no. Indeed libertarians should be appalled. This isn’t even a case of the government telling you whether or not you can choose to ingest a harmful substance (marijuana) or possess an instrument that could potentially be used to harm someone else (guns or knives). This is a case of owning a static product that itself poses absolutely no danger to anybody. That is the libertarian argument, keep in mind. Libertarians trying to rationalize support, could point to the fact that body armour gives criminals an edge against law enforcement and, therefore, indirectly endangers officers of the peace. That is undoubtedly true. But the same goes for guns, and they have a very strong lobby group of letme-do-what-I-want sorts. So for those who would argue against restrictions on firearms, restrictions on body armour should also, logically, be subject to protest. Similarly, for those whose favourite line is “gun’s don’t kill people,
people kill people,” then surely that reasoning extends to body armour, which I (perhaps naively) can only assume has never been used to directly kill someone. Anyone who supports restrictions on body armour should stop using that tired argument. The body armour ban illustrates just how vacuous such arguments are, and what can be done when common sense prevails. After all, let’s face it, body armour is for stopping bullets meant to kill. In Canada, which has a fairly low incidence of gun crimes, you don’t need it unless, that is, you’re immersed in the gang culture. Still, those permit exemptions are available for those who believe their safety is in imminent danger. So restricting body armour’s use makes sense: those wearing it on a day-to-day basis should either be able to get a permit, or shouldn’t be wearing it in the first place. It also demonstrates the entire bankruptcy of the hard-line libertarianism often used to defend any and all restrictions on guns. Liberty is great, but unrestricted it’s also anarchy with no rules. Once you decide there needs to be some rules, you cease being a libertarian and become just another person who wants the law to back off when it suits your case.
t’s status as The Beautiful Game may occasionally be in doubt—the end of last week’s Ghana/Uruguay match being the perfect example—but we couldn’t help but be enthusiastic about the World Cup and Chilliwack’s reaction to Earth’s greatest sporting spectacle. From the abundance of flags to the coworkers pretending to work while watching the games online to the agony of English newcomers and the ecstasy of the Dutch immigrants, the game of soccer is clearly starting to reach a mass audience here in British Columbia. To spill further ink on the World Cup or soccer’s place in the North American sports pantheon seems pretty futile. But like a midfielder standing 40 yards from net with his team down by four goals, we’ll take a crack anyway. We may not be able to learn much more from the World Cup itself than we learned from the Olympics this February—nations getting together to share in a common goal, and so on—but if we look closer at the teams, things get more interesting. We might as well start with the English, which have begun to resemble the everhapless Vancouver Canucks with their conspiracy theorists, never-say-die optimism and consistently spectacular failures. Who could watch Robert Green fumble the ball into his own net and not think of Dan Cloutier’s infamous whiff against Detroit several years ago? Then there are the French, whose failure proved the importance of strong leadership, or at least the importance of not having a star player insult his coach’s mother. Oh, the drama and the lessons. The aforementioned Ghana/Uruguay game—in which a Uruguayan player saved his team by purposely stopping a net-bound ball with his hand in the final minutes— proved that sometimes crime does pay. And we learned that for all the beating it takes, technology is sometimes preferred over the alternative, especially if the alternative entails listening to the rabid English press moan about their goal-that-was-butwasn’t.

There should be outrage over spending Editor: Here we go again. Provincial testing (FSA) results are in and the news is not good. This district has been left behind—again. Students continue to struggle with the basics where barely half of those who wrote the tests, made it. The seventh graders in particular did very poorly. In fact, most failed math. Even the district superintendent herself had to admit that “the district has a problem at the Grade 7 level,” and that “we still have lots of work to do in reading and numeracy in Grade 7.” That’s quite a confession! There is more. Last year, most of the sixth graders had failed in fully meeting expectations on an in-house reading assessment. Surely that could not have been very good news. Now, according to a Johns Hopkins University study, by sixth grade the signs are often there for who is likely to drop out. In other words, dropouts can be spotted as early as the sixth grade. Could that possibly explain this district’s less than stellar graduation rate, where the district has lagged behind the province by a substantial margin (69 versus 79). Surely, all this can’t be explained away as lack of funding. The fact remains that the system has more money than God. Unfortunately, the total cost of public education is often underestimated. Worse still, pinpointing exactly where all that money goes is quite a challenge. Still the public has a right to know. So, let “value-for-money” be the new mantra. Ask: The kid can’t read. What did you do with that child? What did you do with that money? Remember, the first rule of bureaucracy (including most school boards) is to preserve itself at all costs. So, show some outrage. Dr. Lal Sharma Chilliwack
We’re spending less on schools Editor: University professor Dr. Lal Sharma is astonished
education is also a fraction of what we’re spending on other key sectors of our economy— and that fraction is shrinking fast. Relative to provincial GDP, education spending in B.C. has declined by 14 per cent since 2001. What about declining enrolment? Enrolment has been slipping by about 0.5 per cent per year on average for the last decade, and is now growing again (and has been growing for years in districts like Chilliwack, which are still being forced to cut teachers and programs to compensate for provincial underfunding). B.C’.s per-student funding formula reduces funding as enrolment drops, but it’s not hard to see that losing two or three students per school—which has been the typical pattern in most districts—produces negligible operational savings until that trend has been sustained for many years. Despite Chilliwack’s growing enrolment for this September we will lose 20 teachers, 2.35 principals, 11.7 support staff and 16.1 educational assistants. Non-funded cost pressures such as HST, salary and pension increases, MSP, hydro carbon offsets add up to $2.6 million in our district. Dr. Sharma wonders where all the money goes. We’ve provided a detailed breakdown of where the $200,000 per average B.C. classroom goes in the hope of stimulating public discussion on what changes the public thinks would better serve our K-12 students. Administrative costs are just 3.3 per cent. Another 11.2 per cent goes to maintaining and operating school buildings. Principals, counsellors, teaching aides, cafeterias,
playground supervisors, school gyms, libraries, computers and textbooks all cost money. Staff salary and benefit costs are controlled by the provincial government. We do agree strongly with Dr. Sharma that B.C. schools aren’t investing enough in early intervention for children with learning challenges. Even without adjusting for inflation, the B.C. government is spending $100 million less on special education than a decade ago. Chilliwack, for example, spends $13.4 million on special education, of which only $7.4 million is funded through ministry special education grants. And yet many students still aren’t getting the help they need. This funding gap also contributes to the structural deficits that force the board to cut other services despite growing enrolment. We get the fact that funds are tight. Our point is the premier made education one of his great goals for a golden decade. Since 2001 all we have seen is an attack on public education. Is education a priority for this government or not? Dawn Steele BC Education Coalition
Two sides to language issue Editor: In response to Kirsten Hauge letter, dated July 6, in the Chilliwack Times. Before getting on her high horse regarding that no one speaks French in the constitutional office let me relate a very true story which happened to us while residing in Quebec. Thirty years ago something happened to my daughter while living in Quebec. She made a complaint to surete du Quebec but her complaint was never acted on by the Crown who lays the charge. Last year she was subpoened by Quebec provincial court to appear that same year to testify against this same person who had harmed her. All correspondence was in French, some of surete du Quebec could not speak or write in English while they were corresponding with us, They asked if she needed a
translator, as the court proceedings were going to be in French only. Therefore if Quebec courts don’t honour bilingualism, why should the rest of Canada have to? Just because someone is bilingual does not always mean they are the most intelligent. If the Crown had been intelligent they would have tried my daughter’s complaint along with the other, instead of asking her to testify. How cruel was that? So being bilingual does not mean that your heart is in the right place. If the French want bilingualism all over the country they should start at home, as the saying goes “Charity begins at home.” Sylvia Commerford Chilliwack

I agree with Carol that it would be great to have an alternative route to Cultus Lake. As a lifetime resident of Chilliwack I have driven the Cultus Lake Road on many busy summer days. I do not agree with repairing the Soowhalie Road. I remember an emergency, a tragic accident that happened on the Columbia Valley Highway, which caused the traffic to come to a standstill for a couple of hours. The options on that night were either sit and wait or drive on the Soowhalie Road. What extra cost would I have to pay for the privilege of driving it? So, Carol, I actually think that your idea of bringing something to read and a bottle of water is the better alternative. Michelle Miller Chilliwack

Know the truth by living His way
BY SHAWN VANDOP Promontory Community Church
ave you ever tried to get away with something? I have. I had just got my licence and was on my way home from work in my parents’ burgundy 1980 Chevrolet station wagon. The weather was hot, the windows were down and the stereo was loud. Ahead was a stop sign which I decided to ignore because, as I saw it, driving on a back country road rendered all traffic signs useless. I reasoned that no one would know if I ran it and no one would care, that is, except for the guy who hit me.
It all happened so fast. I approached the stop sign, gave a quick glance to the left and then, halfway through the intersection, I looked to the right only to be greeted by the front end of a work van smashing hard into the back corner panel of my parent’s sweet ride. From that moment on all you could hear was the screeching of car tires skidding on hot pavement and me screaming like a little school girl as the car pulled a 180. What now? What would I say to the guy who hit me? How would I explain my bad decision to the police? What was I going to tell my dad? My choice to disregard a rule
of the road created a whole new realm of issues in my life. I know a lot of people who approach life the same way I approached that stop sign. They ignore its purpose and believe their choices will have no consequences only to find themselves later on in life trying to get away from the things they thought they could get away with. People do it all the time. They reason and convince themselves that the decision they are about to make won’t hurt anyone else. It’s the business woman who sees no big deal in driving her car after only a couple drinks or the married man who
believes that his tryst with another woman won’t hurt his family. After all, if I can get away with it what’s the harm? That’s their thinking up until she gets in an accident or his “girlfriend” calls his house. Then everything changes and now their struggle becomes all about trying to get away from the thing they tried to get away with. Jesus knew that we would lean this way. That’s why he gave us his example and said that if we would live life the way he designed us to live it then we would know the truth, and the truth would set us free (see John 8:32). Jesus taught that freedom is not the absence of limits,
rather freedom is the power that God offers us to say “yes” to what is right and “no” to what is wrong. Limits actually protect, guide and allow us to live with no regrets. Are there stop signs that you are ignoring in your life? Choices you are trying to break free from? Why not face the truth, turn to God and ask him for the power to help you deal with your issues so that you can live your life the way he intended—free.

The Chilliwack Evangelical Missionary Church
Central will experiment with free science program M
oney shouldn’t be a barrier to rocking out on science. That’s the idea behind a free after-school Science World program taking off at Central elementary this fall. Super Science Club is a Grade 1 to 7 program designed for inner-city schools, and this October Science World will team up with the Chilliwack school district and UFV to bring it to Chilliwack. Blending classroom learning, demonstrations and interactive activities, the program will run for 10 once-a-week sessions from October to December and another 10 sessions from February to April. Both terms will end with a field trip to Science World in Vancouver. The program’s fun, hands-on approach fits well with the district’s goal of engaging all learners. “It’s not about reading about science or talking about science,” said superintendent Corinne McCabe. “It’s actually doing science —making your hair stand up on end and making things bubble and boil.” The partnership with Science World and UFV was sparked in February by the success of the city’s first Community Science Celebration organized with the help of Science World’s outreach program. “We were kind of overwhelmed by how responsive the community was,” said Science World vice-president of community engagement Pauline Finn. All three partners wanted to keep that momentum going.
For Science World, bringing Super Science Club to Chilliwack will likely be the first step to starting similar programs around the province. One challenge could be finding skilled facilitators in each community, but that won’t be a problem in here. A group of third- and fourth-year UFV science students who already have one year of experience teaching the university’s Science Rocks summer camps are eager to come on board. “They see this as an absolute wonderful opportunity not only to promote science amongst kids but to make connections with the school district as well as Science World,” said acting UFV science dean Ora Steyn who also co-ordinates the Science Rocks program. “Those connections are really important to their future as teachers in the system.” After providing curriculum, equipment and training, Science World will step back and let UFV facilitators deliver the program. It’s major shift in approach for Science World, according to Finn, but it’s one way the non-profit hopes to give science an ongoing foothold in communities across B.C. “We have a provincewide mandate,” she said, “but we can’t be everywhere all the time.” For the Chilliwack school district, Super Science Club, which has been running in some Vancouver schools since 2001, is a way to make Science World accessible to local students who can’t afford trips to Vancouver and who have few extra-curricular options. The cost to run the program for a year is $15,000, and McCabe hopes to find at least two community partners willing to pitch in $5,000 each on an ongoing basis.

Wrecking ball coming for Empress Hotel soon
BY PAUL J. HENDERSON firstname.lastname@example.org
he city of Chilliwack now officially owns the Empress Hotel and the landmark building will soon be rubble. “This is a great acquisition for the city of Chilliwack and we are looking forward to doing some demolition work on it,” Gaetz said at Monday’s meeting of city council. The Times first reported on the sale of the historic building from Slipstream Developments to the Chilliwack Economic Partners Corporation (CEPCO) on March 30. Tom Moul, Roop Virk and Don Yates are
partners in Slipstream Developments, which had owned the Empress since September 2007 and had been working on a deal to sell the property since then. Moul and his partners took $1.3 million for the building, less than the $1.7 million price that was posted on the for-sale sign, and considerably less than the $2.6 million “almost” paid to the partners two years ago. At Monday’s meeting, city council agreed to hold the property in trust for CEPCO “in a manner similar to the arrangement currently in place for the Canada Education Park.” Staff reported that CEPCO has secured a
loan from the Royal Bank for the purchase and demolition of the property. The Empress is in the centre of the city’s downtown development plans and may be a prime location for apartments. It slated as “mixed use” in the city’s downtown land use plan. CEPCO president John Jansen has said the purchase of the landmark building is important for the revitalization of downtown. Slipstream originally purchased the hotel to access the liquor licence and “flip the hotel and be gone,” Moul said in March. That liquor licence has now been moved to a new private liquor store on Yale Road.

Soon thereafter, Holly Tuokko, director of the University of Victoria’s Centre on Aging was quoted as saying that legislation requiring medical exams for 80-year-old drivers—such as in BC and Ontario—and “newspaper reports that over-emphasize collisions involving older drivers, and stereotypes that suggest all seniors are potential threats behind the wheel, contribute to an overall negative public sense of senior drivers.” She characterized age-based compulsory medical exam laws as “ageist” and noted that if the nub of the issue is medical conditions, compulsory medical exams should actually begin at 40, the typical age for the onset of age-related medical disqualifications for driving. Fitness to drive involves a basic set of cognitive, motor, and visual skills. Generally speaking, younger drivers crash because of inexperience, bad judgment, and risk-taking behaviour. The reasonable expectation, however, is that as they gain experience and maturity they will become safer drivers. Aging drivers are on a different trajectory. Although they are experienced ‘safe drivers’ and generally do not take risks, the not
THE ROAD RULES
unreasonable expectation is that their basic set of driving-fitness skills is diminishing.
This ‘different trajectory’ for aging drivers presents a three-fold problem. First, not all aging drivers are diminishing at the same rate. Challenging 80 years as an arbitrary and unfair decision is not without merit. Secondly, health-care professionals Barrister & Solicitor charged with identifying the medical conditions and detecting the changes in cognitive functions, which include remembering, being attentive, judging, and decision-making that might disqualify an aging driver have lacked objective screening tools. And thirdly, as the baby boomers—the biggest demographic— are entering their 60s, the number of aging drivers is mushrooming. In 2025, one in four Canadians will be 65 years or older; by 2040 the number of people with Alzheimer’s disease in Canada will double. For the past 10 years, the research community in Canada has been working on this problem by developing a screening tool called the SIMARD-MD test to assist physicians with objective decision-making about fitness to drive. A simple five-minute written test completed in the doctor’s office, it assists with evaluating the four cognitive abilities needed for driving and determines the probability of passing or failing a road test with a high degree of accuracy. Work on the test continues. To learn more about the topic of aging drivers go to: www.candrive.ca, the website of the Canadian Driving Research Initiative for Vehicular Safety in the Elderly (Candrive), an interdisciplinary health related research program dedicated to improving the safety of older drivers.

A recent Road Rules article about the dangers posed by intersections quoted Transport Canada’s Quick Look at Intersection Crashes in Canada to the effect that, “older drivers (aged 65 years or older) are much more likely to commit an infraction leading up to an intersection crash than most other drivers.” Also that “more middleCedric Hughes aged motorcyclists are being killed or seriously hurt in intersection crashes” and that “more pedestrians, especially seniors, are being killed in intersection crashes.” In short, the topic of intersection safety collided with the topic of aging drivers.

One Pound at a Time Bonnie’s battle with high blood pressure
Before I started on SureSlim I was on high blood pressure medication which I had been on for approximately 7 years. Within two months of starting the program I was able to go off the high blood pressure medication, as well as another medication that was affecting my blood pressure. It has been two years now and my blood pressure is normal and my doctor is extremely happy with my current health status.
Payment plans now available!
Bonnie has lost 45 lbs!
Vicki’s Life Without Pain
Prior to starting SureSlim I was always in pain, not realizing that my body was not meant to carry that much weight on my small frame. Why oh Why had a doctor never told me that. I had been diagnosed with everything from ﬁbromyalgia to arthritis, since losing my weight I am totally pain free. I have not been hungry in the past year...in fact I have been eating more than I would have previously. Thank you SureSlim – I have my active life back with no Vicki pain, I look good has lost and my family is so 50 lbs! proud of me!
Al is a Type 2 Diabetic
I’ve saved BC medical thousands of dollars this year. I’m a type 2 diabetic and I was taking 135 units of insulin, now I’m down to 25 units!! Of course with diabetes comes high blood pressure and those pills are now gone! Basically I sleep better, I’ve got more energy and I’m feeling much better! Calling SureSlim was the best Al phone call has lost I’ve ever 66 lbs! made.
Diana had Thyroid Issues I have suffered with a thyroid problem for over 25 years. After medical treatment, I was not able to drop any weight until I started the SureSlim program. The treatment left me with a thyroid range on the low end of normal which made it impossible for me to lose weight. Now I have easily dropped 47 pounds and have the energy of a 20 year old—no more naps and feeling tired and listless. SureSlim has sped up my metabolism to full peak performance my thyroid Diana despite issues. Thank you has lost SureSlim.

Sports Parrotta said “it’s an extra bonus to get a $500 cheque for the program.”
Parrotta grateful for special coaching recognition Give him a M, give him a V, give him a C. What does it spell? MVC—Most Valuable Coach. Chilliwack cheerleading coach Pete Parrotta has been named Chilliwack’s Most Valuable Coach, through an online contest sponsored by Campbell’s Soup. The award comes with a $500 grant for Parrotta’s Pacific All-Star Cheerleading. But Parrotta, who founded the Cheerleading gym—and who learned of the contest, his nomination and the win all in the same phone call from a local grocer—said the best part of the award is knowing that his
Jock scraps work is appreciated by his athletes and their parents. “I was really ecstatic,” said Parrotta. “To be recognized by parents or kids or whoever, it definitely made me feel that what I do is worthwhile. “It was really good to be recognized because I do put a lot of work and effort into everything I do.” Pacific Coast Cheerleading puts on regular programs and hosts a large cheerleading event each January, and
Bantam A2 lacrosse team steadies itself for provincial run Chilliwack’s Bantam A2 lacrosse team has earned a spot in this weekend’s provincial championships in Richmond after finishing second in its division and winning two playoff rounds. Provincials start Friday, with Chilliwack squaring off against Comox Valley and Prince George. The locals play Coquitlam on Saturday to wrap up the round-robin portion of the tournament. The Chilliwack squad has already taken home plenty of hardware this season, winning a bronze in a New
Westminster tournament, a silver at the Chilliwack tournament and finishing fourth place in Nanaimo. Cougars sportsmanlike conduct earns special recognition The Chilliwack Mosquito AA team got off to a rough start to its season last weekend in the Mission AA Ice Breaker Tournament. The Cougars started the tournament on Canada Day with a late inning loss to the host Mission Astros. Behind the pitching of starter Brody VanVelze, the Cougars got off to an early lead. Tanner Douglas had his first of two singles on the day to put Chilliwack up 3-2 in the second inning. Gabriel Olivares
had an RBI triple in a fourrun fourth inning for the Cougars. Dylan DeBruyn was two-for-two with two runs scored but Mission chipped away at the lead and scored three in the last inning to secure the win. On Saturday morning, the Cougars were beaten 15-10 by Gibsons. Gibsons got off to an early 4-1 lead and were able to hold off a couple of Chilliwack comebacks. Colton Goldthorp led the way at the plate going two-for-two with a single and a triple and two runs scored. Brett Nessel came out of the bullpen to throw 70 pitches keeping Chilliwack close through four innings. Gibsons went on to the tournament cham-
pionship game losing to Tsawwassen 5-2. Saturday afternoon the Cougars faced a strong pitching staff from Aldergrove. Dylan DeBruyn was two-for-two again but the Aldergrove pitchers kept the Cougars bats quiet, giving up only three runs over six innings for the win. The Cougars weekend ended on Sunday with another loss to Aldergrove 16-5. Zak Enneddam tripled and scored two runs and Spencer Gollin was two-fortwo with a double. Chilliwack was named the most sportsmanlike team in the tournament. The Cougars start provincial zone play on Tuesday in Surrey. ◗ Compiled by staff

Dangerous attempts to evade police CHOPPER, from page 1 dangerous and, jumping out of a moving vehicle, had there been a single person in the way, it could have been a deadly incident. We’re very glad no one was hurt.” She added that police never pursued the suspect. As officers ensured the empty vehicle had come to a stop, a witness called police to tell them the suspect was running through backyards towards Thomas Road. Police are still piecing together what happened but the next time the man was spotted, he was rid-
ing a bike near Vedder and Keith Wilson roads. Somewhere in there, the man visited a nearby Home Hardware store and stole two screwdrivers, with which he attempted to steal a vehicle from the Pacific Region Training Centre grounds, likely after being spotted on the bike. “I can only speculate but he did attempt to steal another vehicle at PRTC and those are likely the tools he needed to do it,” said Dunlop. In the meantime, a police helicopter already in the area joined in the search. Shortly before 1 p.m., the helicopter found the suspect hiding underneath the wing of an airplane near the mili-
tary museum. As police quickly arrived at the scene, the man bolted but was finally unable to escape. William Joseph Lavoie, 39, of Surrey, has been charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, flight from police, possession of a break-in instrument, and two counts of theft under $5,000. Dunlop said Lavoie, who was also wanted on outstanding warrants for possession of stolen property over $5,000, is considered by Surrey police to be a “prolific offender.” He appeared in court Thursday and has been remanded in custody. His next court date is scheduled for July 15.

Klassic European Deli coworkers Yvonne Boylan and Ursula Linau show their colours Wednesday while listening to the Germany-Spain match at work.
Crazy mode ORANJE, from page 1 will take it in stride like true Germans.” That loss won’t dim the excitement in the Netherlands, however. “It’s crazy there.” said Yvonne Boylan, one of those Dutch workers at Klassic European Deli. “It’s a sea of orange.” Added Jos Van den Boom: “The whole country is turning into crazy mode— orange mode.” Here in Chilliwack things are a little tamer but Robert Luer—or Flagshop Bob as he is otherwise known—says The Flag Shop has been consistently selling out of flags for those countries doing well in the competition. “The suppliers themselves can’t keep up with demand,” said Luer, who will be looking to stock up for a late rush of Dutch and Spanish flags. Brazil and England fans can rest easy though, the flag shop still has a lot of red and white, and green and yellow.

Chilliwack man accused of assault won’t appear in court for another three months after problems about the disclosure of materials halted his scheduled trial Monday. James E.Vidal is now scheduled for a trial confirmation hearing for Oct. 26. Vidal was supposed to stand trial this week on two counts of assault causing bodily harm. But Vidal’s lawyer, Ken Beatch said Monday that he had not received important video of a photo lineup where Vidal was fingered by a witness. The October trial confirmation hearing will be Vidal’s second on this matter and will take place more than five months after his first such hearing, on May 17.

Retrospective celebrates her ‘second life’ She found time in retirement to pursue her dream of art
pulled lithographs, acrylics and watercolours, all with compelling technique and always to an interestingly aesthetic end. As if they were her children—or family members like in the many branches of her family tree recreated in one of her works—her paintings each have something to say about how they came to be what they are.
BY PAUL J. HENDERSON email@example.com
rna Ewert has what could be called a gallery right in her own home. But it might be more accurate to say that her home is a gallery. Not that the general public gets to see the 100-plus paintings and lithographs that cover virtually ever square inch of the 88-year-old artist’s Chilliwack apartment, but about 25-or-so of her works will be on display in her show entitled “In Retrospect” at the Chiliwack Museum from July 10 to Sept. 2. Ewert is an accomplished artist who has had more than 25 solo shows, many more groups shows, has won numerous awards and was granted the distinction of Associate Federation of Canadian Artists (AFCA) in 1991. And this is a woman who first picked up a brush in her 50s. Born in the Ukraine, she “walked on the boat” at age one and came with her family to Saskatchewan. Two years later they moved to Grande Prairie where she grew up.
“Each one has a little story to tell.” Erna Ewert
Paul J. Henderson/TIMES
Erna Ewert shows off a few of the 100-plus works of art she has created that hang in her Chilliwack apartment. Her family life turned tragic, though, when her father died when she was just 14. “That broke my heart,” she recounted during a recent interview in her home. Then, just three years later, her mother also died and Ewert and her seven younger siblings were

years in 1971. She attended Abbotsford’s Fraser Valley College and after years of study, graduated with a diploma in painting and printmaking in 1983. Most of Ewert’s works are, quite simply, of flowers. But the many and different blooms are depicted in colligraphs and hand-
sent to orphanages ranging from Grande Prairie to Niagara-On-TheLake in Ontario. A difficult youth and a life of hard work put her dream of art on the sidelines. But Ewert was drawn to create after she and her husband, Abe, sold the supermarket they operated in Yarrow for 25
“Each one has a little story to tell,” she says. She points to a lithograph entitled Oats and Straw and tells about how she grew up on the prairies and used a photo to make the print. It has a wispy, blown look as if a bird is rushing through the prairie strands. She points to a lithograph entitled Winter Wisdom of Canada Goose Party, an image of those ubiquitous birds. But Ewert gives the “party” another meaning. “It’s a bunch of politicians that can’t make up their minds,” she jokes. What she considers her most outstanding award—a B.C.

Festival of Arts Award in 1982—is for what is arguably her most interesting work: a 3-D acrylic painting entitled Contrasts. The work is a canvas that has been painted and then folded in such a way that a city skyline can be seen from a 45-degree angle to the left, and farm silos from the right.

Many awards for her beautiful work SECOND, from page 29
The longer one looks around her apartment, which doubles as a gallery, and the more that one sees, the more one experiences her stories—both on the canvas and literally as she talks. Ewert’s hearing is no longer what it was, and pain has left her unable to continue to paint at all, something she very much misses. But she is passionate about telling
stories of how she created her many works during her “second life” as an artist.

Stellar lineup punctuates festival’s Literary Café
novelist, poet, playwright, artist, and two violinists are featured at this year’s Literary Café on July 12, an annual Harrison Festival of the Arts event. The “Bridging the Human” theme stems from the idea that life is a series of bridge-building: between self and others, with one’s own humanity, and with the “greater than us”—seen and invisible. Co-sponsored by the University of the Fraser Valley department of continuing studies, the Literary Café is a long-established and popular staple event of the Harrison Festival. Poet/novelist Leona Gom ofWhite Rock taught at the Fraser Valley College (now UFV) in its first year. A recurrent theme in her writing has always been losing and finding “home.” Her most recent novel The Exclusion Principle (Sumach Press, 2009) is about astronomy and the discovery of the first extrasolar planets. Her characters look at “home” in a more cosmic sense there. She’ll be reading about that exciting time “when we discovered other planets and had to re-evaluate what ‘home’ meant.” Elsie K. Neufeld, a poet and personal historian, is endlessly fascinated by how others “get through.” In her work as life-story editor, facilitator and instructor,
in real-life challenges to the human spirit, but always avoid sermons and transcend political viewpoints. She uses current events as a staircase to create universal narratives that search out and celebrate our strangenesses, excesses and redemptions. Her play 2000 is set on the margins of Vancouver, and portrays the civilized and the savage aspects of humanity. Her most recent play, Another Home Invasion (2010), is a one-woman show about an 80-year-old woman looking after her ailing husband when an unwelcome visitor intrudes. Local singer/songwriter Marilee Jones and Vancouver fiddler Sheila Allan perform songs remarkable for their striking harmonies interwoven with sensuous violin melodies. Their music draws influences from Celtic, Ukrainian and French Canadian dance music. Allan has travelled extensively with the likes of Les Danseurs du Pacific and currently plays with the Vancouver Folk Orchestra. Jones is a composer, multi-instrumentalist and music educator.
An evening with authors Leona Gom, Elsie Neufeld and Joan MacLeod and violinists Marilee Jones and Sheila Allan
she gathers instructions for life from the wisdom of others. Her poems about gardening, death, and acknowledging mystery help her bridge sorrow and pain with astonishment and reverence. Her chapbook Grief Blading Up was published by Lipstick Press in Fall
2009. Playwright/poet Joan MacLeod “read in Harrison a million years ago and [remembers] it was a magical night.” Of this year’s theme she says, “It certainly makes sense for what I fumble around trying to do.”
A winner of Canada’s Governor General’s Award in Drama for Am i g o’s Bl u e Gu i t a r ( 1 9 9 0 ) , Macleod’s style has been praised for clarity, humour, emotional honesty and a steadfast moral dedication to the empathies that transform us. Her dramas are profoundly rooted

Showtime Magical Mud studio tour
This weekend, July 9 and 10, brings the second annual Magical Mud Pottery Tour to Chilliwack. Last year there were 11 local potters participating in this self-guided event, from full-time production potteries to small home-based studios with part-time pottery enthusiasts at the wheel. Some of the studios will have visiting guests, so you will find the work of 15 local clay artists. Watch for the signs and silver streamers, and maps will be available at all of the studios. You’ll see where local pottery and porcelain art is made, with demonstrations happening on both days in most locations. Find raku, garden art, functional stoneware, crystalline glazed porcelain, unique hand-carved and sculpted pieces, dinnerware, birdhouses, gifts, hand-painted porcelain and more.

Santa may take Cherries are a Jubilee a vacation... but S hunger never does!
ummer is a wonderful time of the year when it comes to the abundance of fresh fruit that is available, and cherries are one of my utmost favourite. I believe that we all have some fond memory from our childhood of eating cherries in the hot summer sun; either raw and fresh by themselves, or in a favorite family dessert. The part of the world where cherries originated is very difficult to pinpoint, as they have supposedly been in existence since prehistoric times. Today however, cherries are found all over the world. Birds love cherries, and so it is believed that due to their migration habits, they were the factor most contributing to the spread of cherries trees. We tend to see and consume only one or two varieties of sweet cherries that are sold in our markets and roadside stands. However, there are many different ones that are cultivated around the world. Cherries are divided into two classifications—sweet cherries and sour cherries. There are over 500 varieties of sweet cherries and over 250 varieties of sour cherries worldwide. Three examples of sweet cherries that would be the most familiar to us would be Gean, Bing, and Bigaroon. Gean cherries are the most common. They are either red or black and very sweet. Bing cherries have skins that are usually not as dark and their flesh is substantially more pale, but they tend to be juicer. Bigaroons are somewhat heart-shaped and their firm flesh can either be red or yellow.
On Cooking When buying cherries, make sure that they are fully ripe. Cherries do not ripen on their own after harvesting. Also make sure to buy cherries that still have their stems attached. Cherries without stems tend to spoil faster as the stem cavity will expose a part of the inner flesh. Cherries can be kept at room temperature, but as with most fruit, they will always deteriorate more slowly if kept in the refrigerator. Store them in a container or bag away from strongsmelling foods, as cherries will tend to easily absorb odours, which will intensely affect their flavour. Cherries can be frozen whole or pitted, but freezing will affect their flavour quality and firmness. Frozen cherries will be best used for cooking. Pitting cherries can be done with either a knife by cutting them in half, or with a cherry/olive pitter. These manual mechanical devices look almost like a pair of hand pliers. One end has a round compartment which holds the cherry or olive, while the other end is equipped with a “spike” that inserts into the flesh to push the pit through the opposite end. Cherries Jubilee is probably the most famous cherry recipe. It is recipe that consists of soaking cherries in a cherry liqueur, cooking them in a sugar syrup, and ignit-
ing them with brandy. They are boiled down until the sauce thickens, more cherry liqueur can be added at this point, and then served over ice cream or cake. One of my favorite childhood recipes is one that my Mother made for our family every cherry season. She calls it “cherry soup.” It is whole cherries cooked in a sweet, red, cherry broth with curds made out of flour. It may sound odd, but it is very delicious and can be served either hot or chilled. Dear Chef Dez: I just recently bought a whole case of cherries because they were on sale for a great price. What are some ideas that I can do with them other than making jam? Ron S. Abbotsford Dear Ron: There are many great ways to serve cherries. They add a great contrasting colour and flavour to green salads, and are also delicious in custards, sorbets, ice cream, fruit salads, and pies. Black Forest Cake is another famous dessert with cherries. You can also try making cherry wine or macerating them in vodka to make your own cherry liqueur. Try searching the Internet or the library and I am sure you will come up with many great recipes for serving and preserving cherries! Send your food/cooking questions to email@example.com or P.O. Box 2674, Abbotsford, B.C. V2T 6R4. Chef Dez is a food columnist, culinary instructor and cooking show performer. Visit him at www.chefdez.com ◗ Next “Chef Dez on Cooking” column will appear July 23.

Summer Garage Sales Tim Stephens' Astral Reﬂections
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent continues on hibernation, home, rest, security, kids, nature, gardening, domestic repairs and on ending stale or unworkable projects, relationships or situations. This week is a cakewalk compared to the last seven days. Almost everything ﬂows smoothly, and the only possible contention arises Friday as you navigate an important relationship. One good thing about this day: you see clearly what you’re up against. Otherwise, Sunday’s great for domestic matters. A love affair is in the air Sunday-Tuesday. A career or work matter succeeds splendidly Tuesday-Thursday.
Cancer June 21-July 22: Your energy and charisma ride a beautiful wave. Take advantage, start important projects, see and impress people, ask favours, make your bid – climb to the top of the heap! Your recent mild money luck has ebbed but there will be lots of talk, activity around money. You’ve been in communication mode in your career; now to early August, a graciousness and affection joins in. It’s a perfect time to chat up a boss, confer with colleagues, etc. A favourite sibling might call. This entire week is easy, smooth, productive – except Friday (be diplomatic). Home, nature best Saturday.
Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: This easy, productive week features career, ambition, prestige, dealings with higher-ups or authority ﬁgures (especially Sunday). Remember, this zone needs selﬂessness, caution and good morals through next March. If you think, “I’ll get away with this” – don’t do it, for your own sake! That said, proceed. If you’re stymied, “default” to security, family property concerns. (A mild “destiny luck” aids you in these, early week.) Your hopes and popularity rise Monday/Tuesday – get out, accept happiness! Rest, contemplate, plan mid-week. Your energy surges Friday/Saturday – diplomacy!
Taurus April 20-May 20: This is an easy, friendly, travel-prone week, Taurus. A great time to meet, talk, tackle paperwork, upgrade or buy a computer or telephony system. Sunday might begin a new project in these areas. Be restful, domestic Monday/ Tuesday, repair the stairs, cook, garden, take charge of future security for yourself and/or the kids. Oddly, on your friendly day (Sunday) secrets, solitude and domesticity are favoured; yet on your “relax at home” days (Monday/Tuesday) a new love might begin. Expect complex but fruitful “combinations.” Romance, pleasure, “happy risks” arrive Wednesday/ Thursday.
Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Rest, lie low and study your progress, Leo – especially Sunday. Solitude is a blessing all week, it allows you the time to accomplish some important background tasks. Friday is the only “caution day” this week (be careful with your speech to others, and avoid legal, romantic, relationship and similar forays until early afternoon). So use this time to engage the government, institutions, head ofﬁces, to reconnect with your spiritual side, to research, and to plan future action. Educational, legal, cultural, money and work matters are favoured Monday to Thursday. Travel, read Saturday.
Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: A sweet, mellow week! You understand what puzzled you before. You feel compassionate, you sense why society works, and what life is. Gentle, passionate love is possible (only possible: big passion begins 2011 onward). Culture, social rites, education, publishing, international travel/ contacts, intellectual pursuits are favoured, especially Sunday. Chase career, prestige Monday/Tuesday. You feel upbeat, optimistic, popular and a bit ﬂirtatious Wednesday/Thursday! Retreat, rest, contemplate and plan Friday/Saturday: an ambitious month starts soon. Caution, Friday to early p.m.
Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Popularity, light romance, optimism, bright new horizons and urges about the future – these bless your days now. Sunday is signiﬁcant – a new social (or organizational) contact, idea, or project might start. Your energy ebbs a bit Monday/Tuesday, so rest, enjoy a quiet breather. Contemplate and plan. Your energy and charisma surge upward Wednesday/Thursday – throw off your usual shyness, respond to someone’s “opening gesture,” seek friends, romance, love, intimacy, new ﬁnancial horizons. You’re noticed! Take care with money, don’t risk it, Friday daytime. This eve and Saturday, chase it.
Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Life’s mysteries and depths (sex, ﬁnance, mutual resources, loyalty/ betrayal, dreams, subconscious, critical health, commitments and consequences) – these remain front and centre, but not in any dire way. In fact, this is a week of success, smooth progress and gratifying results! So charge forward, invest, re-arrange debt, seek intimacy, grab funding, research, listen to your hunches. (Notice the phrase “mutual resources” – it means that whatever you do involves another in some way. E.g., an inheritance is “their money” until you get it.) Exercise caution Friday to mid-afternoon. You end happy!
Gemini May 21-June 20: The accent lies on money, earnings, buying, selling, memory, rote learning. Memorizing something, perhaps a big, complex thing, could aid you in future. This week ﬂows smoothly. Sunday might trigger a new money project or idea. Travel, talk, errands ﬁll a busy, happy Monday/ Tuesday. Something involving real estate, home, kids, ﬁnances, debt, security, investment or sex/pregnancy follows a “lucky road” – travel it. These matters are also blessed Wednesday/Thursday, but more on the home, “staying put” side. Romance, pleasure call Friday onward – wait until Friday eve, Saturday.
July 11 - 17 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Relationships remain important. A new one might begin Sunday. This is a great,harmonious week,perfect for mending fences and deepening happy links.A sweet nectar of understanding helps you see others’ positions. Monday/Tuesday bring depths, intimacy, ﬁnancial commitments, investments, secrets. Bonds deepen (or break – unlikely). Gentle love ﬂows Wednesday/Thursday. Success indicated in cultural, intellectual, international, legal zones. Be ambitious Friday/Saturday, but take some care Friday to about 2 p.m., when opposition or surprises could occur. All week, seal a deal! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Chores, chores, chores – get ’em done during this easy, productive week. It’s a splendid time to check your health, start exercise or health regimens, look for a new doctor, repair anything from stairs to computers, handle employment/ employee matters, hire service personnel, and/or buy tools and equipment, from a blender to a backhoe. Be a little wary in romance, career and health the ﬁrst 14 hours of Friday. Otherwise, charge forth! Relationships are an opportunity Monday/Tuesday. Secrets, research, large money Wednesday/Thursday. Romantic notions, pleasure Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Chase romance, creative accomplishment, pleasure, beauty, sports and speculation. Your luck runs high during this smooth, easy week. Woo someone, especially Sunday and Wednesday/Thursday. Responses will be affectionate, gentle (even if you’re rejected). Wednesday/Thursday also feature opportunities, new horizons, the possibility of relocation, negotiation, agreements.Take care Friday to 2 p.m. – a ﬁnancial, and/or an intimate opportunity appears, but it does not “ﬁt” your future. After this, through Saturday, move a relationship deeper, research, or clinch a ﬁnancial action. email@example.com • Reading: 416-686-5014
