RCMP warns women not to walk alone

ithin one randomly selected square foot of Wayne Learie’s Wellington Emporium a person can find: a pair of snowshoes; a plastic machine-gun toting gangster; a piano; and a rare Batman pedal car. It’s that diverse array of, well, stuff that drew a new reality show—Canadian Pickers—to Chilliwack and the Emporium, where it shot its season finale earlier this week. Pickers, for those who aren’t, are kind of like travelling salespeople, except instead of selling vacuums, pickers go door-to-door buying antiques and other long-buried re-sellables. Learie, who grew up on Vancouver Island, was just such a person for 25 years. After a year spent working at a Kelowna auction house (alongside an auctioneer named Stockwell Day), Learie embarked for Eastern Canada and New York State. Learie tells the story best (and in one breath): “I was a professional picker, a cold door knocker, someone who went doort o - d o o r, would

Woman sexually assaulted
o u n t i e s a re a d v i s i n g women walking alone to use caution after a woman reported she was sexually assaulted while walking on Young Road Wednesday evening. Police say a 21-year-old woman was walking north on Young around 7:45 p.m. when she noticed a man following her. The man commented on the woman’s body, continued to follow her and exposed himself to her. She also reported being touched “in a sexual manner.” EB IRST T h e w o m a n First reported on was able to flee chilliwacktimes.com uninjured to a nearby house from which she called police. The suspect was described as being a white man, about 20 years old, with short blonde hair and blue eyes. He was reported to be five-feet tall and of stocky build. He wore a black hoodie with a white design on the front, along with baggy blue jeans and running shoes. Mounties are asking the public for help identifying the supspect. “Given the time of day, there was likely a high volume of traffic,” said RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth. “Police believe there could be witnesses that saw this incident.” While both this man and another man who exposed himself and

If they let me in their house I proceed to give them cash and buy stuff.” He would fill his pick-up truck with antiques, store them in a rented barn and, once a month, sell the lot to a big-city antique dealer. After moving to Chilliwack a decade ago and starting, then selling, a downtown appliance business, Learie’s eye fell on the vacant twostorey downtown building that would become his Emporium.

But, for a general sense of things, here’s some of what Learie sells (and thus has bought): pinball machines; gumball machines; vintage swords; rebuilt ‘50s era gas pumps; a canoe; jewelry; native art; middle-age-style helmets; a suit of armour; an African shield and spear; records; a forbidding metal chair with a metal skull; a miniature six-foot-tall-plus tower; a pennyfarthing bicycle; a totem pole; an unremarkable pay phone; and statues of, in no particular order, a 10-foot-tall Hulk (holding a small Hulk in his fist), Homer Simpson, a giant lobster, T-Rex, Mike Tyson, Buddha, a drummer boy, an astronaut and a giraffe. The Canadian Pickers made two separate appearances at the store. About a month ago, the hosts—Sheldon Smithens and Scott Cozens— travelled the area and used Learie to appraise the miscellany that they purchased from local homes.

wo men reported missing this week in unrelated cases were both found in Chilliwack safe and sound. Police issued a plea for John Dixon on Thursday after the Chilliwack man never arrived in Calgary, to where he had planned to drive in order to visit family. Just hours later, police were notified that he had been located in Chilliwack. On Tuesday night, Marc Craig Colman was found “safe and sound” in Chilliwack just days after the RCMP issued a public call for information on the 50year-old man.

Sardis secondary Grade 11 student Rachael Schroots is bound for Spain and Peru this summer after winning a $17,000 bursary for La Ruta Quetzal BBVA 2011, an annual cultural expedition funded by the Spanish government.
Whiz kid wins prize S
ardis secondary student Rachael Schroots is all set to cruise the Mediterranean, climb Machu Picchu and hobnob with Spanish royalty this summer—all compliments of the Spanish government. Last month Schroots—a French immersion student in her second year of Spanish at Sardis—won a $17,000 bursary for La Ruta Quetzal BBVA 2011, a six-week, cultural expedition to Spain and Latin America that annually involves more than 200 youth from around the world. Only one Canadian applicant is chosen per year, and the onerous application process, which requires students to submit a historical, literary, artistic or musical work in Spanish on one of six topics, took Schroots four months to complete. She stuck with it, she said, because she was inspired by YouTube posts of last year’s trek. “I want to be there. I want to do this,” she said to herself after seeing the videos. “They got to do a lot of really cool

things.” This year’s expedition will tour Peru and Spain and include advanced courses in language, sociology and anthropology, as well as well as an introduction to the King and Queen of Spain. The winning project that secured Schroots her spot is a multimedia creation about a pre-Aztec civilization in Peru called the Moche people. It’s a faux-leather-bound box, shaped to look like a book, which contains a 3-D model of a Moche village, six Moche figurines and a fiveand-a-half-page fictional journal by a Spanish explorer who finds his way to pre-Columbian Peru via Egypt (all written in Spanish, of course). Besides winning her the prize, the project was also a learning experience. “Her journal writing took her to a level that I don’t even teach in Spanish 12,” said Sardis Spanish teacher Paola Blaak. “She was a Spanish 11 student, and because of her need to express herself in written form, she actually

What is the best way to tell if a school is doing a good job? Fraser Institute’s director of school performance studies, in a press release on Monday. If it’s unfair and misleading to rank schools based on standardized tests, what is the best way to tell if a school is doing a good job? The Chilliwack Times set out to answer that question this week by asking people in the education community one question: What is the best way to tell if a school is doing a good job? Here’s what they had to say:
BY CORNELIA NAYLOR firstname.lastname@example.org
Kylarae Brugge, Bernard elementary parent
“The only thing I go on is if my daughter’s doing fine with her report card results... It also helps me too when I go in the classroom when they have the open days and you go in and see the art works and whatever. I based it on how the kids are doing, I guess. I’m not really looking at from school to school.”
Brett Stevenson, Bernard elementary parent
“Through the test scores really. How literate they are. How much they can read. If they’re learning, if they know stuff.”
hilliwack’s public elementary schools have been judged and found wanting this week in the Fraser Institute’s Report Card on Elementary schools, which annually organizes B.C. elementary schools into academic winners and losers based on province-wide standardized tests that gauge reading writing and numeracy. Fifteen of Chilliwack’s 17 public schools were ranked below their fiveyear averages, and five local schools rank in the bottom tenth percentile in the province. One bright spot, according to the report, is East Chilliwack elementary, which was listed as the 18th most improved school in B.C. over the past five years. Every year B.C. teachers condemn the Fraser Institute’s rankings as demoralizing and unfair while school district officials dismiss the report card because they say the data it uses are incomplete and the methodology flawed. But the Fraser Institute argues its report card helps parents identify which schools are doing well from year to year. “The Fraser Institute report card is the only easily accessible, objective tool that helps them identify whether schools are meeting students’ academic needs,” said Peter Cowley, the
Chrissy Lambert, Bernard elementary parent “It really has a lot to do with if your child is happy or not and what they come home and tell you…If they’re talking about their teacher with a smile on their face, they’re doing activities at school they like and actually come home remembering things they learned at school.” Martha Wiens, trustee “By positive results produced in education at the school.” Heather Maahs, school trustee “By assessing standardized testing results. The tests give us comparative results from one year to another demonstrating success, improvement and consistency. These factors are vital in terms of the bottom line in student achievement, which is our number-
Vision & Value for the whole family
Colleen Alton, Bernard elementary teacher “You have to look at where kids start and where they end up. I may have kids that aren’t at grade level by the end of the year, but they may have jumped two grades from where they started at the beginning of the year.” Kirk Savage, Yarrow elementary principal “You have to walk through the school when it’s in session because then you get a feel for the atmosphere and the culture of the school. You can see the engagement of kids. You can feel whether the school’s welcoming.”
Doug McKay, board chair
“Evaluation plays a part. We have to evaluate. We need ongoing evaluation and we need final evaluation, and when we put all those together along with the parent satisfaction surveys that we should be doing in each one of our schools, then we begin to get a picture of is this school is doing a good job.”
Angie Aitken, Bernard elementary parent “Well, I’m here all the time, so I see what goes on every day. It’s important that the parent’s involved in it.” Katharin Midzain, CTA president “It’s very intrinsic. It’s not particularly measurable in any numerical, quantitative way. It’s quality. You can feel a good school. You can walk through the halls and feel that a school is functioning well and the kids are happy and the teachers—and I mean teachers in a broad sense, educators, the whole staff—is involved with the kids.”
John-Henry Harter, trustee
“It is the child’s teacher and their report card that is the best indicator of how a student is doing. The student, his or her parents, and the teacher, can best assess their progress and learning without any ranking of schools.”

L Signs, N Signs, and now M Signs?
Under BC’s graduated licensing rules, ‘Learners’ must display the official red ‘L’ sign and ‘Novices’ the official green ‘N’ sign on the back of their vehicle, clearly visible to drivers behind them. These labels indicate the driver is not fully accredited and is subject to special restrictions regarding blood alcohol content— zero for both stages, the number of passengers, and others.
THE ROAD RULES
The tendency is to be ‘up’ on all these rules and restrictions while going through the graduated licensing program—parents of teen participants likewise—but then to happily ‘file’ them away once the ultimate goal, the Class 7 licence has been obtained. Apart from occasionally noticing an unusually creative way of displaying the sign—an upside down ‘L’, an ‘N’ turned into a ‘Z’, a twisted, torn, cracked or homemade sign, it’s probably fair to say that most drivers have too many other demands on their attention to fully register and recall the full import of these labels.
and many other VWS members!
FASHION SHOW by
But even if law enforcement is (or becomes) their primary purpose, these labels still serve as notice to drivers in the vicinity of the learning driver to take extra care. To this end they are helpful: no more guessing required—this particular driver merits extra watchfulness. And in this regard they are likely much more persuasive than “baby on board” stickers.

This issue of labeling drivers—now a commonplace, the graduated licensing program having been in effect since August 1998—has twice come up in the
Both the RCMP and ICBC said they had not heard of new drivers refusing to display the decal, and doubted that the decal made them ‘targets’. The driving instructor who was the source of the story pointed out, however, that “Unless the novice driver is breaking the law or suspected of being drunk, there is no reason for police to pull the driver over and thus discover that they should be displaying the N.” The second reflection on the usefulness of driving labels was a ‘stunt to spark discussion’ by the Abbotsford police in which they publicly ‘unveiled’ a mock ‘M’ for mature driver. Their purpose: to highlight that in the last two years in Abbotsford, contrary to the trend, the average age of the drivers involved in 22 fatal collisions was 40, and there were no teen fatalities. The ‘M’ label is a warning said the police that “middle-aged drivers need to be vigilant when it comes to driving behaviour.” A riff on this stunt in the Globe & Mail produced driving labels for all the remaining unused letters of the alphabet.

news recently. In late December 2010, the media reported that a driving instructor with 37 years experience operating driving schools in the BC interior and on Vancouver Island claimed that dozens of parents in northern and central BC were telling their teens not to display the mandatory N decal because they feared for Barrister & Solicitor their safety on deserted, unlit, rural roads. The story quoted one father as saying, “The N makes them a target.”

Now it’s official
BY PAUL J. HENDERSON firstname.lastname@example.org
hilliwack’s MLAs officially announced $3 million in provincial government funding to purchase the Day’s Inn on Young Road to create a housing and health centre to address homelessness in a press release Thursday morning. The site for the long-awaited health contact centre was first reported by the Times in the Feb. 4 edition soon after the city’s rezoning application sign was put up on the property. When notified of the property’s future as a centre for homeless, addicted and mentally ill men and women, one neighbouring business owner said he was surprised and that he would oppose the development. The provincial government has signed a contract to purchase the building from the owner of the Day’s Inn. The deal has a subject condition removal date of March 31, with a closing date of May 3. The application for rezoning from tourist commercial to a new R9 Supportive Housing and Health Contact Centre zone is scheduled to come to city council at the Feb. 15 meeting.
Surrey-based Pacific Community Resources Society (PCRS) will operate the centre and will be one of the agencies providing services. Established in 1984, PCRS provides special education, employment, addiction counselling, prevention services, housing and cultural enrichment services at locations between Vancouver to Chilliwack. If given introduction and first reading at city council’s Feb. 15 meeting, a public hearing will be called for March 1. “Our $3 million provincial contribution will cover the property purchase and renovations to the existing building,” said Chilliwack-Hope MLA Barry Penner in the release, which was issued by the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General and the Minister Responsible for Housing. “Now that a property has been found, we can move on to the next steps of getting these housing and health care services in place for people in need.” PCRS director Laurie Birdsall told the Times on Feb. 3 the organization has not had difficulties with neighbours at similar facilities in the past and, because of the long-term, community-driven nature of Chiliwack’s health contact centre, he is optimistic there will be support.

Computers don’t think or care J
ust a moment. I’ll be right with you. AAARRRRRRGHHH!!!! There. That’s better. They may be monstrous spawn of the devil—probably conceived during one of the Dark Master’s darkest moments, in fact—but computers do not normally scare me. I am not completely computerilliterate. I recognize the value of computers as tools. A number of my friends and associates sometimes actually come to me for advice when they’re having computer problems—that, despite the fact that I don’t believe I’ve ever actually solved a real problem. I just seem to have a knack for looking competent while smiling knowingly, and since they don’t know any more than I do, that air of confidence makes them feel like I’ve accomplished something. I don’t feel terribly competent today. The problem is that, sometimes when you work with these beasts a lot, you start to believe that they think. They don’t. Computers are not smart. In fact, they are not even stupid. They just are—sort of the way shovels just are. Or hammers. Or note pads. Or bulldozers. Or any tool.
Be Our Guest These days you can talk to computers, and they seem to listen. They will repeat your words in print, or they will “obey” simple commands. Some talk back. But that still doesn’t make them smart. Or stupid. And, I have to remind myself today, it doesn’t make them malicious, either. They just are. They have no emotions. They have no more sense of what they are doing for you than a hammer does. Nor do they have any sense of what you are doing. That’s why they will do whatever you ask of them. Even if your head feels like it’s full of sawdust because there’s a flu bug in there gnawing away at the inside of your skull, chewing up any stray thoughts that, on a better day, might attempt to escape into the real world. Computers don’t care about any of that stuff. They don’t care about you. They don’t care about anything. They just go right ahead and fol-
low any thoughtless or impetuous command you order of them. Even if your command is downright stupid. Even if your command is to have them to do something that you didn’t really mean for them to do. Something really dumb. Even a particularly dumb dog would look at you for a moment, before refusing to do something really stupid. But computers obey unquestioningly. And they’re fast! You can wipe out a whole day’s work in just a few billionths of a second. Do you realize how short a few billionths of a second can be? And yet, even in that short space of time, your heart can skip an entire beat, and a blast of adrenaline can rush out past your elbows and right into your fingertips—signalling stupidity. Too late. That’s how fast they are. You can blame nebulous cosmic interference, or you can blame a flu bug, or you can even (perhaps in a weak moment) blame yourself. But in the end, it is your own stupidity, not the computer’s. Computers aren’t smart. But they aren’t stupid. Emotionless, cold, calculating: they just are. ◗ Bob Groeneveld is the editor of the Langley Advance.
his week, everyone has gotten at least a small chuckle out of the cat signed up as a BC Liberal member. If it was taken seriously, this feline voter could prompt promises of taxfree fancy feast from the top candidates. This kind of prank, or sabotage, is inevitable when the parties are in furious preelection mode. The Liberals have sworn to sign up more than 35,000 new members during their race, roughly doubling the size of their party. The NDP has already closed its membership sign-ups, but thousands of new members have no doubt jumped aboard. Still, these party members are but the barest fraction of the population of B.C. Yet between them, they’ll determine the next one or two premiers of our province. Many people have no inclination to become a member of a political party. They may be disinterested, or simply find neither party to be a good fit. Those of us who are members of neither party have a series of binary decisions facing us in the next few years. Is it worth it to vote at all? Do we vote based on our local candidates or on the promises of the party leaders? Do we vote Liberal or NDP? Major party or third party alternative? But the choices of leaders, who can do so much to shape this province’s destiny, will be out of our hands. While political leaders urge us to vote, another way to be heard is to stay outside of the political process, and advocate for important issues. Whether it’s education or health care, policing or farming, the province has a great deal of power. As the potential leaders criss-cross the province, make your voice heard. Talk to friends, co-workers, fellow parents at your school, the members of your hockey team. Write letters to newspapers and MLAs. Start a petition, donate to an advocacy group. Educate yourself. Voting, for either a party leader or an elected official, is just the visible tip of democracy. It’s supported—and dwarfed—by the work of hundreds of thousands of people of good conscience.

Binners keep it green
Need bylaw to outlaw the poor Editor: Dear Citizens of Chilliwack: Why don’t we just make a bylaw so that it will be against the law to be homeless, poor, destitute, and addicted. But while we're at it, ensure we pass a motion to raise taxes substantially in order that we can properly maintain these individuals and they would not have to delve into this type of employment. And on Sunday maybe we could all remember them in our prayers by asking God to forgive you for looking down on them. Jim Laffin Chilliwack
Sad for dogs, but babies first Editor: I am a real animal lover and am also saddened by the animal slaughter, thrown on a pile and buried, showing no respect. However, I listened to a lady on Global last week, and this is much more appalling. She said her mother had her aborted, and said she was put where they put aborted babies waiting to die with the other aborted babies gasping for their last breath like a fish

out of water. She of course does not remember this but was told by the lady that had pity on her. Apparently she had been crying, trying to live and a lady was there and looked at the appalling scene, all the aborted babies, and took her from where she had been placed to die. This lady cared for her, got her stabilized, loved and raised her, tuned her into a very nice young lady. Now you tell me, what is worse? Dogs are wonderful, I love them, but do we get such an uproar when hundreds of babies get slaughtered? Babies are human beings, that are complete: fingers hair, toes little ears, nose within a few months. All I can say, is God help us. Then the two ladies, Jennifer and Nichole that stated Ms. Kathleen McCune was judging others. Romans, Chapter 1-18-32, in the Bible speaks so clearly even a young child can understand. She (K. McCune) did not do the judging, but the word of God cuts deep and judges us. God loves everyone dearly, but he does not love the sins we commit. I love gays, I have people very close to me that say they were born that way. God made us in the likeness of Himself, in his image, (male and female he created them) Genesis Chapter 1:26-31. We were not born thieves, murderers, liars, we were born in sin because of Adam and Eve, but we choose from birth, and what we choose we become. Jesus made a way out for us, by shedding his blood, and when we accept that, ask Him into our lives, we have the strength to make the right choices. Rereading the Bible, as you say,
is wonderful, it shows me and us up for who we are. Mary Leiding Chilliwack
Still silent over other murders Editor: Killing dogs? Senseless, irrational, tragic, worthy of death, incomprehensible, criminal, vigilante action required, international shame, etc. Killing babies? Silence and so much more silence. Whilst the media hordes are in a crazed frenzy report all the gruesome, sensational details of this event, (truly an incomprehensible, tragic event worthy of investigation and/or punishment), and whilst the outraged public clamour over one another to make the details even more sensational, one has to ponder the magnitude of the reaction. Consider for a moment: If you are so angry over the senseless killing of these dogs, with whom you have no direct link, how angry do you think the Almighty God is over the senseless, tragic, incomprehensible slaughter of thousands upon thousands of the little children He created. Your silence makes you as culpable as the perpetrator of the alleged dog kill. God’s righteous anger is not to be ignored and one day the penalty will be paid. Speak up for the helpless dogs unable to speak for themselves? Absolutely! Speak up for the helpless children unable to speak for themselves? Your eternal destination might hinge upon it.

Editor: What wonderful a front page story and photos about Craig “Spiderman," the classy binner, by Paul J. Henderson in the Feb. 8 Chilliwack Times. It speaks so well of Craig and also of the compassion of the journalist, Paul. Craig is actually very “green” when the public is constantly made to realize in the media that green is in and very cool. Compliments to you Craig for also speaking out on behalf of your fellow binners. May the public also be aware not to generalize but rather appreciate the significant contribution binners make for a friendlier, kinder city. George H. Epp Chilliwack
Losing Strength As You Age?
s we get older we tend to lose a great deal of muscle and strength. Proper nutrition, exercise and a little bit of creatine can help maintain muscle strength no matter what your age. A recent study found that seniors who exercised and consumed creatine showed greater muscle strength. Not bigger muscles, just much stronger.
And now, Canadian researchers have conﬁrmed this recipe for a vigorous old age that includes one part old advice and one part something new. This simple recipe for staying strong as you age, includes exercise, which builds new muscle tissue, promotes balance, stamina, and strength. Step 2 is by simply adding creatine to your diet. Creatine is a safe muscle building supplement used by body builders to promote muscle growth. Researchers at McMaster University tested seniors aged 65 to 85. One group did an hour of weight training twice a week, and took creatine each day. The other group exercised, but
took placebos instead of creatine. Without exception, the creatine group became much leaner and stronger. One 77-year-old participant, says he felt great by the end of the study... “I feel much better and much more vigorous. It helps a great deal.” he stated.
By the end of the trial I had lost weight... I was strong all over...” said 75-year-old Elizabeth, adding: “Feeling stronger makes you feel physically stronger, you feel mentally stronger.” Says the research leader...“If we can help patients maintain their strength, and their activities of daily living, it can lead to a tremendous improvement in the quality of life for people” Zipfuel is high quality, easy-to-take creatine energy drink to help build and maintain your strength.

Robyn Kempers, seen here racing at the Sarids Fliers’ meet at Twin Rinks on Jan. 22, will represent B.C. at the Canada Winter Games next week. BY TYLER OLSEN firstname.lastname@example.org
Kempers heads for Winter Games
ardis speed skater and allround sports phenom Robyn Kempers will represent British Columbia next week at her first Canada Winter Games. Kempers left Thursday for Halifax, where she will skate in 500-, 1,000and 1,500-metre events against Canada’s best young skaters. The 17-year-old Sardis secondary student—she also captains Sardis’s basketball team, plays softball and runs track—earned an alternate spot after placing third at the second of two qualifying competitions earlier this year. She got the nod to skate after a friend who had qualified ahead of her elected to skate in the Winter Games’ long track event. Kempers was excited for her friend, but not shocked that she had been bumped up to the main team.
“We knew she was trying out for both and we knew she would most likely make the long-track team beforehand so we had a good idea before the competition.” Now that she has booked her ticket to the big event, Kempers hopes to finish in the top 10. She will compete in three events—at the 500-, 1,000-, and 1,500-metre distances—with the 1,000 being her bread and butter. In short-track speed skating multiple competitors, often as many as six, race at the same time around a track no larger than that of a North American hockey surface. With its mix of strategy, drafting and contact, the sport has been likened to stock car racing on ice. That’s all part of the thrill for Kempers, who started skating with the Sardis Fliers after noticing an ad in the
paper. Kempers said that every race is different, with the 500-metre more of a sprint and the 1,500-metre requiring more strategy and even teamwork between competing skaters. “If you know you have someone in your race you can work with, you’ll make a plan with them,” she said. “For the 500, it’s pretty much just hard off the line. For the 1,000 it’s a little bit more chatty because it’s nine laps and most people can’t sprint it and win the race at the same time, so you have to be able to know when to initiate the pack and . . . start actually racing instead of drafting off the pack.” Kempers began racing at the age of nine and, within a year, had already won a medal at a regional competition. Now she’s an assistant coach with the Sardis Fliers and knows that as she races in Nova Scotia, she’ll
Paul J. Henderson/TIMES
have a whole squad of young skaters cheering her on across the country. It’s a feeling she can relate to. “I know I always looked up to my teenage coaches; they were a big inspiration,” she told the Times. “So I have lots of little kids who are saying ‘good luck Robyn!’” The Winter Games is the last major event on Kempers’s calendar. She has already competed in the Junior National championship, where she finished 28th out of all skaters 19 and under in the country, despite being just 16 at the time. While she would eventually like to compete for her country on the world stage, she first hopes to make the Junior World Championships—she’ll need to finish fifth or better at the Junior Nationals—and progress from there. “My main goal right now is junior worlds—of course the Olympics, obviously—but right now it’s smaller steps.”

ONE DOZEN SWEETHEART ROSES
hilliwack Bruins captain Brandon Manning will miss the next six games after being suspended for a hit that broke a vertebrae in the neck of a Kamloops Blazers defenceman last Friday. Manning was suspended indefinitely immediately following the hit and missed last Saturday’s game against the Blazers. On Wednesday, the length of his suspension was set by the Western Hockey League at seven games. BlazersdefencemanAustin Madaisky was hit back-first by Manning as the Blazer attempted to forecheck in the third period of Friday’s game. Madaisky suffered a fractured cervical vertebrae in his neck on the play while Manning was given a boarding major and kicked out of the game. He won’t be eligible to play again until the Bruins take on the Vancouver Giants on Feb. 25. His teammates, meanwhile, will play three games this weekend. The Bruins play a home-and-home set Friday and Saturday against the Kelowna Rockets, with

f you think the hockey players on your TV look bigger and faster and stronger and more skilled than they did 20 years ago, you’re not mistaken. And now that today’s NHLers are more formidable than ever, the young pucksters who strive to reach the pinnacle of this nation’s most popular sport are pouring more time, effort and money into perfecting their game and their bodies. The result is a personal training industry—in Chilliwack and across Canada—that would be unfathomable 20 years, when many of today’s trainers were playing junior. “The NHL is really strong and it’s because of that sort of new age of athlete who is coming through [and] who is training,” said Valley Sports Zone co-owner Erin Thornton, who played with the Chilliwack Chiefs of the BCHL and Seattle Thunderbirds of the WHL in the early ’90s. “When I was going through, we were doing the bench press and the arm curls and that type of thing—then you go to training camp and get in cardio shape. Now, these kids, the season is a little bit longer and the training is unique and sports-specific.” Take the Chilliwack Bruins’ Kevin Sundher for example. He began working with his personal trainer four years ago, before he had even been drafted into the Western Hockey League. “I wanted to get bigger and stronger,” he said. “When you get to the Western League everybody’s [training] and I just felt, [that while] I could have done that by myself, it’s good to have a good structure and plan in place with an experienced trainer.” Now, Sundher works not only with his personal trainer, but with Bruins’ strength and conditioning coach Rick Webber, who lays out year-long programs for every Bruin and Bruin prospect, based on what improvements the team would like to see. Training is even more crucial now for those between the pipes. There was a day when goalies were shoved in net with no more advice than “stop the puck.” That was the approach when Sean Douglas was playing junior and high level hockey in the early ’80s. “Essentially, we would go to our summer hockey schools and even there, though they would give us the guise that there would be a goalie coach, typically it would be a college player or former NHLer who would stand
there and watch us,” said Douglas. “We really didn’t have a whole lot of specific goaltending coaches.” In the early-to-mid 1990s that changed and today Douglas, who works out of Goalline Hockey Training Centre, is one of dozens, if not hundreds, of goalie coaches in Canada. The development of new goalie styles—like Patrick Roy’s butterfly—put an emphasis on technique and positioning, rather than reflexes, and sparked the move to high-level coaching. And as pro goaltenders have plugged their holes, the young and up-and-coming netminders who aspire to make the big leagues have had to keep pace. A similar race to the top has spurred a move towards intense one-on-one and elite coaching for skaters. Now most junior and almost all professional players work with personal trainers in the off-season. That extra work can pay dividends when it comes to a race for a puck or a battle along the boards. “A coach who has the ability to break a player’s stride and teach edge control will increase the players speed and quickness at a much faster rate than working with an entire team,” explained Xceed Training’s Paul Nicolls in an e-mail to the Times. Nicolls works one-onone with elite athletes and also played for the Chiefs in the early ’90s. While team training is important, he said that for personal fitness and skating, one-on-one training “will always be more effective.” Of course, all that training comes at a cost. Some is borne by minor hockey organizations and junior teams. But players, especially the younger ones, often pay their way. Douglas and other goalie coaches offer free clinics throughout the year for minor hockey netminders. Thornton, meanwhile, said that his new facility is trying to keep costs down in order to appeal to a wide range of athletes. But there’s no doubt that a young athlete has a better shot at achieving his dreams if his parents have money. “The more financial resources that a family may have to put towards training, it’s going to show at some point,” said Douglas. That said, training every waking hour throughout childhood doesn’t guarantee a shot at the pros. “I believe the more training you receive will increase your chances to get to the higher levels,” wrote Nicolls, “but if your don’t absolutely love and enjoy the game and have passion for it at some point even the most skilled players lose interest in playing.”

BY PAUL J. HENDERSON firstname.lastname@example.org
riverside property in the Chilliwack River Valley has been donated to the Abbotsford-based Fraser Valley Conservancy (FVC) by the FraserValley Regional District (FVRD). The property, at 48513 Auchenway Rd., will be used for conservation purposes in perpetuity and connects Crown land to provincial parkland. “Through the restoration of both aquatic and terrestrial habitats, a very significant wildlife corridor connecting Crown land to provincial parkland will be created and maintained,” said Ashley Peters of the FVC. The FVC said the property and adjacent area is home to several species at risk, one of which may be the Coastal Giant Salamander. Because of a mudslide two years ago the Auchenway property had been deemed unsafe for residential use,
Made good on masks PICKERS, from page 1 two things. The show ’s producers told the Times that once in the Emporium, the hosts “couldn’t help themselves and started picking and buying items from his shop since he has tons of interesting things. “In particular, Sheldon and Scott fell for a collection of native masks that they negotiated hard for and that ended up being the biggest purchase of the whole series.” Canadian Pickers will premiere on History Television in April and the finale will air sometime in July, said Learie. Shows like American Pickers, Pawn Stars, Auction Kings and Oddities have been a ratings phenomenon in recent years. The Internet and EBay had dealt a substantial blow to many antique dealers, but the reality shows have reminded people of the appeal of collecting; Learie says he has heard that business at many antique stores has increased by as much as 20 per cent. As Learie’s lamp collecting friend Bart Nygard chimed in, “All the stores have died, but all the collectors are still looking.” Now, Learie hopes that the Emporium’s appearance on Canadian Pickers will bring customers from around B.C. both to his store and to downtown Chilliwack. “I want it to bring more people into town for the downtown merchants,” he said. “This downtown is getting better all the time. . . . Hopefully, if you keep the stores nice, it becomes a destination drive for people.”
◗ See related story page 22.
Species at risk benefit from land donation
according to FVRD Area E director David Lamson. “The Fraser Valley Conservancy has partnered with the Chilliwack River Action Committee to plan for remove several old sheds and alien plant species,” Lamson told the
Times via e-mail. “Bioengineering methods are planned to restore natural habitat.” Lamson said this work is intended to reduce sedimentation into Ryder Creek and degradation of downstream salmon spawning habitat.
“Support for this project has come from the CRV Ratepayers Association, Chilliwack Fish and Game Protective Association, Fraser Valley Salmon Society, Chilliwack/Vedder River Clean-Up Coalition, The
Fraser Valley Watersheds Coalition and individuals,” he said. FVC executive director Lisa Fox said the acquisition of the property is just the first step from their point of view. “When FVC takes over a
property it is a permanent deal and endowment funds are needed to manage and aid in the rehabilitation and reestablishment of habitats for long term success,” she said. ◗ The FVC has set up an Auchenway Habitat Management Fund, donations to which can be made at www.fraservalleyconservancy.ca.

Eye Thermage Q & A
Lack of support concerns parents YARROW, from page 5
Answer: There are many options available to improve the‘tired look’. EyeThermage improves skin tone and texture while effectively tightening and contouring the skin for an overall younger appearance. Results are long lasting, subtle and improve over time. Botox and Fillers can be used to restore lost fullness and enhance facial contours. The use of a good eye cream will help restore the elasticity of the delicate skin around the eyes and reduce visible fine lines. To finish off your youthful appearance, Latisse™ can be used to enhance the growth of your own eye lashes to make them look fuller, darker and longer. Dr. Marianna Snyman Dr. Marianna Snyman

is designed to boost Mount Slesse’s flagging student population—currently about 150 students below its 650-student capacity—and balance it against the population at Vedder, which is currently operating at more than 50 students above its 600-student capacity. Maintaining both middle schools at or above 500 students is important for maintaining programs and continuity in staffing, according to McCabe. Changing Yarrow’s catchment made sense, she said, because the students there are already being bused and, coming from a small school, would fit in well with students from Mount Slesse’s other small feeder schools like Cultus Lake elementary and Greendale elementary. If the change goes through, this year’s Yarrow Grade 6 students would head to Mount Slesse in September while their older brothers and sisters stay at Vedder. Besides busing issues and conflicting school events, parents raised concerns
about a loss of support for their kids. “Right now what’s scary to a lot of kids and parents is that there’s such a support group already at Vedder,” said one parent. While Heisler assured parents Grade 7 students are well supported at his school through programs like multi-graded advisory classes, McCabe acknowledged the change would create some social dislocation for Yarrow students. “They won’t have their older brothers and sisters or friends in the older grades at Yarrow,” she said, “and that is one of the challenges. You have to acknowledge that.” Despite some enthusiastic input from Mount Slesse teachers, who talked up their school’s academic programs and extra-curricular clubs, some Yarrow parents at Tuesday’s meeting said they planned to oppose the change before it goes before trustees at a board of education meeting on Feb. 22.

There’s a code of ethics good pickers live by
BY TYLER OLSEN email@example.com
hose who go door-to-door buying antiques must abide by a strict ethical code, for everyone’s sake, according to expicker and Wellington Emporium owner Wayne Learie. Pickers often run into elderly homeowners who may not fully grasp the value of their seemingly worthless furniture. But Learie says that pickers exploit such people at their own risk. “If you don’t have a good reputa-
tion, nobody brings you nothing,” says Learie. Fair pickers, he said, will tell homeowners what price they will sell the desired antique for. “A lot of times when you’re picking you’re running into seniors right? And people are trusting your knowledge, right?” says Learie. “If they say, ‘What’s this worth?’ and something’s worth $1,000 and somebody says ‘$50,’ they’re being dishonest with them. “The way to do it is to say, ‘This is worth $1,000, I can pay $500. I have to make money. I buy and sell. And

“There’s good and bad in every business,” says Learie. “It’s up to the picker—the person knocking—to be ethical.” But when the seller gets a good price and the buyer gets a product on which he can make a profit “it’s a win-win thing,” according to Learie. However, if something is already up for sale, be it at a garage sale or auction, then there’s no shame in buying it for the price set by the owner or the market. “Just this year I bought a mask for $200, a native mask, and it

Faith Today BY SHAWN VANDOP Promontory Church
alentine’s is just a few short days away. It’s a day where people express their love by spending millions of dollars on cards, flowers and chocolate all to celebrate the most misunderstood decision that anyone could make. I know, most people think of love as a feeling or an emotion—which I’ll admit play an important role—but they do not define love. I learned a long time ago that lasting love is a choice not a feeling. Let me explain. Just over 16 years ago I married my wife. Up to that moment our love was very emotional. I would think of her and my heart would beat faster and my feelings of love would overwhelm me. No way did I ever think of hav-
Begin choosing love ing to choose to love her because my feelings for her were strong enough to keep us going (cue Barry White). Then we got married. I quickly discovered that the love we felt for each other could lose its lustre. In fact, after only a few days of marriage my wife began making a daily decision to love me that still continues to this day. You see, each morning when she rolls over and sees me with those dried crusty things in my eyes, the drool on my pillow, and gets a whiff of my dreadful morning breath, she still tells me that she
tells us that God is love (1 John 4:8). That means that he doesn’t just show love, he is the very definition of love. In 1 Corinthians 13 we are given the description of love, which also gives us a clear picture of God. It says that love is patient, kind, not jealous nor proud. It’s not demanding, irritable and keeps no record of wrongs. It never gives up, it never loses faith, is always hopeful and endures through every circumstance. It is a love that never fails. Who wouldn’t want to be loved like that? I am so glad that God does not
loves me—but it’s not because she “feels” it. At that moment her love is clearly a decision. The truth is my wife and I do not always “feel” love for each other, but that does not negate our love for one another. We’ve learned the truth that lasting love is always fueled by the decision to love. It’s actually our decision to love that feeds our feelings and fires up our emotions. To know that someone’s love goes beyond just feelings is to create a relationship that is secure and healthy. It’s to learn to love others like God loves us. The Bible
love us only when he feels like it. It is very comforting to know that the God of the universe chooses to love us no matter what we’ve done or who we are. What if you embraced God’s way of loving and extended it to those in your life? What if when your wife ticks you off, you choose to love her? What if when your husband disappoints you, you make the decision to love? What if you decided this Valentine’s Day to commit to practising a love that never fails? Instead of just feeling love, why not begin choosing love? If you do, your love will grow deeper and your relationships will be richer. ◗ Shawn is pastor of Promontory Church.You can connect with him at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Award-winning musical is a sure thing
ollow Canadian First World War flying ace Billy Bishop from the trenches to the skies, where he is credited for 72 victories, in the touching musical theatre, Billy Bishop Goes toWar. On Valentine’s Day at 8 p.m., all lovers, veterans, families and fans of live theatre are invited to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre for a worldrenowned show starring Ryan Beil as a riveting Billy Bishop. Beil is probably best known as Ryan-the-bumbling-trainee in the ubiquitous A&W ads, which were filmed at Chilliwack’s own A&W. But the A&W gig is only part of it. Beil won a Jessie Richardson Award (B.C.’s top theatre prize) for Best Actor for his role in Billy Bishop. He has also performed in Comedy of Errors (Bard on the Beach), American Buffalo (Main Street Theatre Co), and is a member of the Sunday Service, a highly entertaining improv troupe who perform every Sunday in Vancouver. Beil is a star and in Billy Bishop Goes toWar his award-winning performance brings audience members to their feet time and time again. The Globe and Mail said “Billy Bishop is, simply, a sensational evening’s entertainment.” First World War fighter pilot Billy Bishop takes his airplane made of
Ryan Beil stars in Billy Bishop Goes to War on Feb. 14 at 8 p.m. at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre. wood, linen, and piano wires up to the skies and, by the end of his first month in action, almost every member of his squadron has been killed, driving home to him, in no uncertain terms, just what a dangerous game he’s playing. The moving and powerful musical follows Bishop as he attempts to reconcile the ecstasy of flying with the horrors of war, going on to reveal the myth
of the man as he tells of crossing swords with commanders, the Germans, the British and those who saw war as a good time. As the recipient of the Victoria Cross, Canada’s highest gallantry award, Billy Bishop became a Canadian hero. Supporting Beil on piano is Zachary Gray, son of John Gray, who wrote Billy Bishop Goes to War and played the very same role in the
original production more than 30 years ago. The show is directed by Sarah Rodgers, who also won a Jessie Richardson Award for this show. Rodgers is married to Andrew Smith, the artistic director for the Chilliwack School of Performing Arts and director of their blockbuster production of Seussical the Musical. With a superb mixture of irony

and white-knuckle tale-telling, Billy Bishop Goes toWar is a show not to be missed. ◗ Purchase tickets by calling the centre box office at 604-391-SHOW (7469) or visit the box office Monday to Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets are also available online at www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca.

bbotsford’s Gallery 7 Theatre & Performing Arts Society presents its third workshop of the 2010/2011 theatre season: Playwriting, with Vancouver-based playwright, Lucia Frangione, on Feb. 12 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Learn how to brainstorm, pre-write, develop characters, write dialogue, prepare a script for performance and more. This workshop is perfect for writers looking for input on an existing work, for writers who may be thinking about writing a play and for writers looking to expand their general skills. “It’s not often that a workshop of this kind with a facilitator of this calibre and with so much experience comes along,” says Ken Hildebrandt, the theatre’s executive artistic director. “This is a very rare opportunity for both the budding and experienced playwrights to gain some valuable knowledge about the ins and outs of writing a play.” Frangione is an award-winning playwright who has extensive experience seeing her plays produced and published. She is best known for performing her own works, including Paradise Garden, Espresso, MMM, Cariboo Magi, Chickens and Holy Mo! She is the recipient of the Gordon Armstrong and Sydney Risk playwright awards. Espresso was nominated for seven Jessie awards and toured Western Canada in 2004. Her 18 plays have been produced by theatres such as The Stanley, The Belfry, Ruby Slippers, Solo Collective, Chemanius Theatre and Prairie Theatre Exchange. She is published by Talon Books and is on the Board of the Playwright’s Canada Press and the Playwright’s Guild of Canada. As an added bonus, Frangione will be sharing about her personal journey as a playwright at Gallery 7 Theatre’s third and final Theatre Side Chat of the 2010/2011season

Joaquin Diaz and his merengue band comes to Harrison Memorial Hall on Feb. 12.
Moving to merengue beat
erengue music comes to Harrison Hot Springs as the Harrison Festival Society presents Joaquin Diaz and his band on Feb. 12 at 8 p.m. in the Harrison Memorial Hall. Diaz, one of the best of a new breed of traditional merengue artist, is originally from the Dominican Republic and is now based in Canada. His repertoire is a mixture of traditional and original tunes that is characterized by its exhilarating syncopated rhythms, the diatonic accordion and his infectious vocals. Forced to earn a living at the age of nine, he
became a musician playing on the streets in Santo Domingo. Still in his teens, he performed at the Pan American Games in Puerto Rico that led him to play at the presidential home for the then President Joaquin Balaguer. Merengue is synonymous with the Dominican Republic; you can hear it from every apartment, car and boom box and from the backwoods bars to the trendiest urban dance clubs. ◗ Tickets for this high energy show are $22 and are available by phone at 604-796-3664, online at www.harrisonfestival.com, or in person at Agassiz Shoppers Drug Mart.

The family of Hazel Hooper, who passed away December 15, 2010 wish to thank all extended family, friends and coworkers who supported each of us through our mom’s lengthy illness. Thank you for the cards, ﬂowers, phone calls, e-mails, food and many hugs we received. Thanks to Pastor Norm Miller who was always there for us. Special thanks to Dr. Kishi, the palliative team, Dr. Bull and all the wonderful nurses, caregivers, volunteers and hand holders at the Cascade Hospice. We really appreciate the special attention, expressions of love and care given to our mom. Everyone went above and beyond to accommodate mom’s idiosyncrasies and answering our many questions. We know that mom was really well cared for and she enjoyed her time sharing her knowledge of gardening, plants and many childhood memories with all of you. You were able to make this difﬁcult time bearable for us all. With gratitude and love, from the families of: Sylvia Elderkin, Terry Krause, Pam Krause and Greg Hooper.

August 5, 1952 - February 7, 2011 With heavy hearts the family is devastated to announce the sudden passing of a beloved Father, Grandfather, Brother, Uncle, Companion & Friend. Ingnace John Poittris was tragically taken in a work-related accident at the age of 58 outside Fort McMurray. Ingnace worked over 30 years in the pipeline industry and did it all for his boys. He was the epitome of a true man. He did what had to be done to provide for his family without ever complaining. He was born in Vancouver, BC and then became a long-term resident of Chilliwack, although he spent a lot of his time working on the pipelines across Canada. Ingnace was survived by his loving sons, Nathan (Karen), Dareld (Courtney), Darsell (Lacey), Dean, mother of his children, Buryl Poittris, precious grandchildren, Ethan, Bobbi, Carter, Jaylee & Jayce, sisters Moneca (Larry), Mary and brother Pat (Dulcie). Missed terribly by Sue Stoten, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, friends & co-workers. Ingnace was predeceased by his father and mother, brothers and sister and his loving family dog, Arnold and many squirrels! We love you Dad and always will, we did in life, in death we do still. Each morning we start with a broken heart, but carry on daily playing our part. On you Dad we knew we could depend. You helped us along. If we walk in your footsteps, well never go wrong. A Viewing for Family & Friends will be held on Thursday, February 17th 2011 at 7:00 p.m. at St. Marys Church. Funeral Service will be held on Friday, February 18th 2011 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Marys Church, 8909 Mary Street, Chilliwack. Burial will be held at St. Marys Cemetery following the service. Casket bearers are: Nathan Poittris, Dareld Poittris, Darsell Poittris and Dean Poittris.

' Helping Businesses one shoebox @ a time'
Cancer June 21-July 22: Mysteries continue, for one more week. Seek the truth beneath appearances. Dig deep. (Someone acts sweet but can’t or won’t do what they seem to promise. Applies all week.) Rest, plan and meditate Sunday. Visit a psychic, pastor or other counsellor. Your energy, charisma and effectiveness surge Monday/Tuesday. Monday holds refusals despite your luck, but you might vault over them. Tuesday favours you, especially in two areas: friendship, and depths. (So again, dig deep.) Chase money or a sensual bond Wednesday (good) and Thursday (goals might be elusive). Talk, travel Friday/ Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Relationships are accented, but don’t fall in love or propose this week. (Don’t worry – if such seems imminent, there’s still lots of time.) Wishes come true Sunday – happiness, friends, light romance and popularity paint your future with golden strokes! But retreat this night through Tuesday: you need a short but deep rest: seek quietude, plan, contemplate. You’ll spy the inner workings of love Tuesday. Your energy, charisma and effectiveness surge upward Wednesday/Thursday – strike early Wednesday, in legal, travel, intellectual areas. Chase and conserve money Friday/Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: This is your last week of work – Friday begins a month of fresh breezes, exciting meetings, new horizons and opportunities. (Opportunities are unusually important this winter/ spring – seizing them can change your life.) Until Friday afternoon, complete chores, especially the obligations that “show up” Wednesday/Thursday – if neglected they will weigh you down later, just when you should be rising. Earlier, chase practical and prestige goals Sunday – success accompanies the ambitious! Wishes, optimism and social joys mark Monday/Tuesday. All week, DON’T begin a new love.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reﬂections Aries March 21 - April 19: Travel, call during an active, friendly Sunday. But this night, settle into home – and there, through Monday/Tuesday, tackle some difﬁcult questions around relationships, marriage and life’s opportunities. (Are there any left for you? Yes, many, but they’re all connected to ambition, career, until late 2012.) Tuesday’s better; a “secret” friend or stranger might help. Romance, creativity, pleasure and beauty whisk you to adventure midweek! (Don’t start a love relationship this week, though. It’s doomed long term.) Plunge into chores Friday/Saturday. Chase fun, friends, all week. Taurus April 20-May 20: The accent lies on ambition, career, dealings with VIPs, bosses and parents. Take a quiet, behind-the-scenes approach. Conﬁdential discussions, private planning, quietly lining up allies, contacting/applying to government or institutions – all these contain a quiet but lucky “change.” Chase money or shop Sunday, but NOT for techie items. Monday (barriers) and Tuesday (success) bring errands, communications, paperwork, details. Midweek accents home, and a choice between ambition and relaxation. Romance calls Friday/ Saturday. All week, avoid over-exertion, physical and intellectual. Gemini May 21-June 20: DON’T fall in love, propose, or chase a new romance this week. You’ve started to achieve success in group and social situations – and this will continue for four months of solid, heart-warming growth. If you’re single, this might well yield a new love. But not this week. You shine Sunday: start new projects, ask favours, show your talents. Your intuition is superb, so just do, rather than over-think. Quit by suppertime. Money, purchases and possessions ﬁll Monday (barriers, waste) and Tuesday (success – buy high-tech). Communicate, travel midweek. Home, rest Friday/Saturday.

NOTICE TO CREDITORS AND OTHERS CLIFFORD GEORGE VARCOE, deceased, formerly of Chilliwack, BC
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that creditors and others having claims against the estate of the above deceased are hereby required to send particulars thereof to the Administrator at c/o Farris LLP, Attention Sally Dennis, 25th Floor, 700 West Georgia Street, Vancouver, BC V7Y 1B3, on or before March 28, 2011, after which date the Administrator will distribute the estate among the parties entitled to it, having regard only to the claims of which the Administrator then has notice.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The romantic theme continues, but DO NOT begin a love affair or new relationship this week. Other themes, creativity, speculation, beauty, pleasure and teaching, are ﬁne. Generally, you are (or your subconscious is) putting on the brakes a bit in all these areas, preparing for a subsequent surge. Sunday’s splendid – intellectual, travel, love and communication projects succeed. Exercise your ambitions Monday (dilemmas of choice) and Tuesday (success via creative effort). Social delights, ﬂirtations, wish fulﬁllment arrive midweek! Retreat Friday/Saturday: plan the work that looms. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Your “hibernation” period continues, so rest deeply – until Friday, when a month of romance, pleasure, speculation, risk and adventure starts! Neither make nor accept any partnership proposals this week (nor persuasive pitches for commitment of any kind). Sunday offers superb ﬁnancial, investment, research, diagnostic and intimate opportunities. Sit down with a loved one for a deep, exploratory talk. Gentle wisdom enters Monday/Tuesday. Be ambitious mid-week, especially ﬁrst thing Wednesday morning. (Avoid selfdeception.) Friday/Saturday bring social delights and bright optimism! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: If a new wish or life goal comes to you this week, don’t invest a lot of faith in it; your destiny is very likely going to detour around this one. Sunday’s ﬁlled with opportunities (or opposition if you push others too hard) – exciting meetings or openings “synch” with your intuition. It’s a good time to answer “yes” on a whim. Life’s depths and mysteries rise to the surface Monday/Tuesday: DON’T invest, commit, nor seek intimacy Monday – Tuesday, these succeed. Gentle love, understanding, cultural stuff Wednesday/Thursday. Friday begins a month of domestic matters.
Feb. 13 - Feb. 19 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Continue to seek money, new clients, to buy and sell, until Friday.Your personality has grown more gracious and alluring the past week or so, and this helps you with ambitions this week. You’re slowly changing, and slowly but seriously climbing, carving out a new “position” this decade. Tackle chores Sunday – you accomplish much! Relationships contain opportunity and opposition Monday, but success and good feelings Tuesday. Finances, investigation, intimacy, lifestyle choices are blessed Wednesday, “iffy” Thursday. Wisdom, gentle love come Friday/ Saturday. A busy month begins. Aquarius Jan.20-Feb.18:Yourenergy,effectiveness and charisma continue at a peak...sexual magnetism drips from you too. (Hmm, not sure of that image.) You might attract amorous attention, but DON’T begin a love affair now (nor ever with anyone you ﬁrst meet this week). Sunday’s romantic, creative, pleasurable and beautiful – you’ll win at games or love! Tackle chores Monday (results uncertain) and Tuesday (good results). Relationships, opportunities, exciting meetings ﬁll Wednesday (lucky morning!) and Thursday (be diplomatic, not evasive). Friday’s ﬁnancial, and begins a month of money efforts. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Continue to lie low, rest, contemplate and plan. Refresh your spirit. Friday begins a month of fresh energy, rising charisma and effectiveness – but rest until then. Sunday’s splendid at home or in nature – a great day to enhance your security, deal with family members, garden, etc. Romance, creativity and beauty touch you lightly Monday/Tuesday, but the best that comes from this is friendship. It’s not quite time, Pisces. Tackle chores and health concerns Wednesday/Thursday. Wednesday morning’s efforts can open a lucky career door. Exciting meetings, opportunities occur Friday/Saturday. email@example.com • Reading: 416-686-5014

“Know that old expression ab out the journey be ing its own reward? W ell, in the case of the 2011 Dodge Journe y, we can definitively say that this new versio n is a lot more rewardin g. The 2011 Journey receives a number of si gnificant changes, inclu ding a new, more pow erful 3.6-liter V6, retu ned suspension an d steering, and a revampe d interior featuring high er-quality materials and a new touchscreen in terface.” EDMUNDS
“The new model has been significantly improved: The smartly designed gauge cluster with Electronic Vehicle Information Center and vibrant 8.4-inch touch-screen display should more than draw in a few looky-loos. An attractive three-spoke steering wheel, simplified center stack, and softer touch materials are now standard. When you’re cooped up on the road during daily schlepping duties, an inviting interior is a godsend.” MOTOR TREND
