Sex charges adding up

Getting a laugh out of Shakespeare!

Police probe into former baseball official results in two additional alleged victims BY

A former Tsawwassen resident is facing more sex-related charges. Rick Glendinning, 60, who now lives in Vancouver, was arrested back in September and charged with indecent assault, sexual assault and gross indecency. He was released but was back in police custody Wednesday after two more alleged victims came forward, said Delta police spokesperson Sgt. Sharlene Brooks. Delta police initially received information in December 2009 regarding alleged incidents of sexual assault that “occurred in years previous.” At that time investigators were concerned there were additional victims who had not yet come

forward. One area of concern in particular was Glendinning’s decade-long affiliation with the Tsawwassen Amateur Baseball Association. He was involved with the organization between 1985 and 1995, and would have had access to numerous young people during that time, police said. Investigators put out a request asking for others who felt they were victims of sexual assault at the hands of Glendinning to come forward. As a result, two more alleged victims were identified. Brooks said the alleged victims, both male and female, were in the elementary to high school age. Glendinning was arrested without incident on Wednesday. A publication ban is in place to protect the identities of the victims.

Carol Berner will have to wait a little longer to find out if she’ll be granted bail while her case makes its way through the appeal process. Madam Justice Carole Huddart reserved judgment in the B.C. Court of Appeal yesterday. The judge did not set a date for when she would give her decision. Berner is appealing her con-

viction and jail sentence in the 2008 crash that killed four-yearold Alexa Middelaer and seriously injured her aunt, Daphne Johanson. The 58-year-old was convicted in July and was sentenced to 30 months in jail last week. Defence lawyer David Tarnow said, if released on bail, Berner would stay with her sister on Vancouver Island. Court was told Berner would be eligible for parole in 10 months.

Even speed limit can be too fast Police department joins forces with ICBC to impress on drivers to pay close attention to road conditions BY

JESSICA KERR

jkerr@delta-optimist.com

Delta police and ICBC were out on the streets this week targeting speeders in an effort to drive home the message that drivers need change their habits along with the weather conditions. Delta police and community police station Speed Watch volunteers set up in two locations Tuesday morning — in the 600block of 56th Street in Tsawwassen and at Kittson Parkway and Highway 91 in North Delta. In Tsawwassen, volunteers were set up just past a posted speed limit sign with a speed reader board. They made note of each car that drove by and whether the vehicle was traveling under, at or over the posted speed limit. A couple blocks up the street, Delta police officers had their radar guns out ready to stop speeders. The idea, said spokesperson Sgt. Sharlene Brooks, is to prompt drivers to slow down by showing how fast they’re traveling. Those who continue to speed after passing the posted sign and

the reader board are pulled over and issued a ticket. A/Sgt. Lisa Coupar said that location was chosen because the department has received complaints from residents about drivers speeding up the hill. Volunteers and officers were set up at the North Delta location at the same time. In 90 minutes, a total of 430 vehicles passed through the two speed traps. Of that, 45 were traveling 10 km/h over the posted speed limit and eight were going 20 km/h over the legal limit. Eight continued speeding and were given tickets. ICBC partners with police departments around the province at this time of year to remind drivers to slow down as the weather changes. “Wet road conditions are a main factor of speedrelated crashes in the Lower Mainland,” said Jon Schubert, ICBC’s president and CEO. “Unfortunately, many drivers don’t adjust their speed and recognize that the posted speed limit is only for ideal or dry road conditions.” Sometimes, rain and

snow dictate the need to drive slower than the posted limit. “Even maintaining the posted speed limit can be too fast for the road conditions,” Brooks said. Road safety co-ordinator Jacki Tokaryk had a few suggestions for drivers as the Lower Mainland gets ready for winter: slow down and drive for the conditions; give yourself more travel time; keep a safe distance from the car in front of you.

Delta police officers were positioned on 56th Street this week to ticket drivers that refused to slow down.

Safe driving tips courtesy of ICBC

Here are some driving tips from ICBC: • Follow other vehicles at a safe distance. Allow at least two seconds of following distance in good weather and road conditions and at least three seconds on a highway. • Slow down on wet roads, in bad weather conditions or on uneven roads.

Increase your following distance to at least four seconds. • Increase your following distance when you’re behind a large vehicle that could block your vision, or a motorcycle that could stop very quickly. • If a collision seems unavoidable, steer to the right. Head towards the

least harmful option, preferably an object that will give away on impact, such as a bush. The most harmful option is a head-on collision where the force is doubled. • Don’t speed up as someone is trying to pass you — it’s illegal. Help the other drivers get back into your lane by slowing down

and making room. • Be realistic about your travel time. Allow time for possible delays because of traffic, construction or bad weather. • If you’re going to be later than you expected — deal with it. Take a deep breath and accept the delay. Like they say, better late than never.

Mayor continues to support extending terms to four years SANDOR GYARMATI

Metro Vancouver municipal politicians are continuing to push for longer council terms despite being blocked at the Union of B.C. Municipalities. The Metro Vancouver board of directors voted in favour last week of a rec-

ommendation by its intergovernmental committee to ask the provincial government to adopt four-year terms for councils. The committee cited several reasons, including extended terms benefiting taxpayers by “providing more stability, saving significant tax dollars by having fewer elections and

ensuring greater focus on sound planning.” Extending terms from three to four years would also “provide new councillors the ability to settle into their roles and responsibilities and allow them to implement their visions and achieve their goals.” Also in favour of the longer terms, board chair

and Delta Mayor Lois Jackson said almost all Lower Mainland representatives on the regional district support the longer terms, unlike civic politicians from smaller rural communities in the province. “Hopefully people will get to know their representatives a little better rather than changing frequently.

There’s a whole host of reasons ... The rural areas of British Columbia said there were too many old people and some real incredible reasons why we should not go to the four-year term,” said Jackson. “Nonetheless, we have gone forward as Metro Vancouver, who has over half the population.”

Opponents have argued longer terms are a barrier to participation and may end up leading to more by-elections. A motion to extend terms to four years was defeated at the UBCM annual meeting in September primarily due to strong opposition from smaller rural communities.

Mayor talking garbage in Mexico City BY

sgyarmati@delta-optimist.com

Mayor Lois Jackson is in Mexico City this week attending the Third Congress of United Cities and Local Governments conference on behalf of Metro Vancouver. Jackson, chair of the regional district board, is attending the Nov. 16 to 20 event with another representative from Metro Vancouver. More than 3,000 city officials from around the world were to take part in various meetings about municipal issues, local

governance, the economy and climate change. According to the international association, the conference provides participants the chance to debate challenges facing cities and municipalities “including effective governance, economic development, innovation and building a more efficient city for 2030.” The Metro board approved sending the pair at a cost of $19,682. The board also agreed the delegates should focus on solid waste management for the international discussions. A Metro staff report

notes the UCLG had invited the Metro Vancouver delegation to present solid waste management issues and objectives for consideration as a global priority under the UCLG’s strategic priorities. Created in 2004, the UCLG is the result of three organizations: The World Federation of United Cities, The International Union of Local Authorities and Metropolis, the international association of major metropolises. Its mission is to be the united voice and world advocate of democratic self-government.

Day of Remembrance puts focus on Alexa Middelaer Impaired drivers are killing two people a week in B.C. BY

JESSICA KERR

jkerr@delta-optimist.com

Wednesday was the third annual National Day of Remembrance for Road Crash Victims, and the BCAA Traffic Safety Foundation marked the day by remembering Alexa Middelaer. The day has been set aside to remember those killed or seriously injured on Canadian roads and those left to deal with the sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one. Four-year-old Alexa Middelaer was killed and her aunt, Daphne Johanson, was seriously injured after being hit by an impaired driver as they were feeding a horse on the side of the road in East Ladner in May 2008. Carol Berner was convicted of impaired driving causing death and bodily harm and dangerous driving causing death and bodily harm last summer and last week was sentenced to twoand-a-half years in jail. Her conviction and sentence are

currently under appeal. “Impaired drivers are killing an average of two people and injuring 60 every week in B.C.,” said Allan Lamb, executive director of the BCAA Traffic Safety Foundation. “This is a statistic that has not changed significantly in the past five years and is not surprising when one in five people in our province admits to driving after drinking.” Crashes related to impaired driving kill 133 people and cause more than 3,000 injuries on average every year. Traffic crashes cost the B.C. economy $8.8 billion annually and impaired drivers cost the province more than $1.6 billion every year. Shortly after Alexa’s death, the BCAA Traffic Safety Foundation partnered with her parents, Laurel and Michael Middelaer, in their fight to change the laws and social attitudes around impaired driving. The foundation established the Alexa Middelaer Memorial Fund. Donations

to the fund are used to educate communities and individuals about the dangers of impaired driving. The Middelaers also worked with the foundation to create Alexa’s Team, which recognizes police officers from around the province who are working to take impaired drivers off the road. Since 2009, 175 officers that removed more than 8,000 impaired drivers from B.C.’s roads have been named to Alexa’s Team.

Ike Barber Shortly after receiving his award, Barber stated, “It is truly an honour to be recognized and I’m proud to work with Kwantlen Polytechnic University on ensuring that educational opportunities are available to everyone who aspires to learn, grow and contribute to our communities.” With a long history of charitable contributions in the community, the Century Group won in the Outstanding Corporation category. Nominated by the Delta Hospital Foundation, Century Group president Hodgins has continued a tradition of giving that his father, the late George Hodgins, began years ago.

Sean Hodgins A major benefactor over the years has been Delta Hospital. In the last 20 years, the company has donated over $1.6 million in support of various capital campaigns. “There is no doubt that a philosophy of giving has always been part of the Hodgins family,” said Lois Wilkinson, chair of the Delta Hospital Foundation board. Wilkinson said Sean Hodgins has taken on his father’s legacy of not only donating generously, but also taking a leadership role in many fundraising activities. This year Hodgins also gave $1 million to the Delta Hospice Society.

The money is used to breed, train and place professional guide dogs with blind and visually-impaired people. B.C. Guide Dog Services has placed 82 guide dogs since 1996. Sundance Pub patrons, staff, volunteers and proprietors have helped give freedom and independence to someone like recent graduate, Mark Hicks. “Liberating,” is the first word Hicks says about how he feels about receiving his new guide dog, Leamy. “I feel empowered, I have my dignity back. I no longer have to wait for someone to take me to the pharmacy, or the barbershop, or even out for a coffee. I’m very good with a cane, but it’s such slow going, and it can even be scary when unexpected obstacles get in the way or I get turned around. “Now with Leamy to guide me, I’m even getting excited about going back to work.” The Sundance Pub meat draw is held most Friday nights, except for a few nights off during the year, starting at 4 p.m. and running to about 7 p.m. The Sundance Pub is at 6574 Ladner Trunk Rd. 11209921

Sundance Pub patrons and volunteers, represented by Delta Citizen of the Year finalists and pub proprietors Al and Phyllis Wawryk, donated a cheque to B.C. Guide Dog Services for $4,000 earlier this month. The mood was festive as patrons cheered and clapped at the cheque presentation. At least half a dozen puppies-in-training had brought their puppy raisers along for the special occasion. This most recent donation, while fantastic all by itself, brings the total the Sundance Pub has raised to over $40,000 since 2003, when it started holding weekly meat draws to benefit B.C. Guide Dog Services. “This is just amazing, just wonderful,” said William Thornton, CEO of B.C. Guide Dog Services. “These fundraising efforts have made such a significant difference to our organization.” “It’s the customers; really, we’re just facilitators,” said Al Wawryk. “Our customers are very generous to the cause.” “Volunteers run it, customers support it and we just provide the venue,” explained Phyllis Wawryk. “Our patrons know this is for a very good cause, and it gives them a sense of ‘doing good’ in the community. “We take a very handsoff approach.

Many heartfelt messages have been left on a Facebook group page for Mattersdorfer. “Thank you Samantha — for sharing your story with all of us — it showed people, of all ages, how to be brave and strong even when fighting dragons — you are truly a hero,” wrote Mary Ann Burrows. “You were so brave. An absolute inspiration,” posted Liz Farquharson. Donna White, provincial director of the Terry Fox Foundation for B.C. and the Yukon, posted a message on the Terry Fox Foundation website that

Ladner’s Samantha Mattersdorfer, who raised thousands of dollars for the Terry Fox Foundation, died last week after a battle with cancer. She was 19. Mattersdorfer, who fought the same type of cancer Fox had, attended last year’s local Terry Fox Run and shared her story before the event. “There’s not a lot of people like me and Terry,” she said in an interview last year. Mattersdorfer’s mom Cathy told the Optimist last year that Samantha had been raising awareness about cancer, all the while with a smile on her face, ever since she was diagnosed. Mattersdorfer raised over

TED MURPHY

MURPHY’S LAW What kind of message are we sending? Last week began with Solicitor General Rich Coleman musing about strict new drinking driving laws being, well, too strict and ended with Carol Berner receiving all of a 30-month sentence for killing a child while she was impaired behind the wheel. It seems to me that both the legislation enacted by our governments and the sentences handed down by our courts should send the proper message. When it comes to drinking and driving, however, that’s not happening. The judge in the Berner case called impaired driving causing death “one of the most serious offences in the Criminal Code,” yet only imposed a two-anda-half-year sentence. I’m not blaming the judge, who did an admirable job during the trial and was handcuffed by precedents in case law when meting out punishment, but something doesn’t add up here. A four-year-old is killed, her aunt is seriously injured and an entire family suffers an unfathomable loss yet we deem the offence that caused such calamity worthy of just 30 months in prison. Call me guilty of throw-away-the-key thinking, but that’s simply not adequate. I’m not suggesting Berner is some sort of monster because that’s clearly not the case, but a 30-month sentence (and she’ll be out long before that with good behaviour, I presume) suggests drinking and driving is far from one of the most serious offences in the Criminal Code. Speaking of sending the wrong message, the new drunk driving laws, trumpeted by Victoria as the toughest in all of the land when introduced earlier this year, have been, get this, changing people’s behaviour. They’ve had such an impact it’s got some people worried. There’s a concern among those places that serve liquor that patrons aren’t drinking as much, or not at all, because they have to drive themselves home. This development is hurting business and has politicians suggesting police are perhaps being too vigilant in their interpretation and enforcement of the new laws. Does that mean we want people to have one more before they hit the road? Are we being too cautious? Is that such a bad thing? The bottom line for me is that although we talk a good game when it comes to impaired driving, we fail to walk the walk. The new laws provided a glimpse into a future where if we’re willing to take strong, decisive action, the public will fall into line. In the meantime, we must live with the consequences of our inaction.

Hold the line on taxes until economy is back on track IAN ROBERTSON

COMMUNITY COMMENT The U.S. mid-term elections are now over, after hundreds of millions of dollars have been spent on campaigns. It looks like the debates in Washington will be fierce, and compromises few and far between. Recovery from the recession in the U.S. may be painful and lengthy. Why should that be of interest to you? The U.S. and Canadian economies are closely linked through trade and many forms of investment. Many of you work for firms that trade (buy, sell) with the U.S. Others drive cars and trucks whose parts and technology are linked to the U.S. Many have investments that are linked by way of currency or business to the U.S. and to its worldwide reach. While our Canadian economy seems OK, the U.S. has some serious problems yet to resolve.

Whether you look at unemployment approaching 10 per cent, massive federal and state deficits, an incredible national debt, or the lack of growth, there are few healthy signs. Over three million U.S. homeowners are behind in their mortgage payments. House repossessions this year will total over one million, many of which are tied up in courts due to faulty ownership declarations. It will take a considerable time and lots more money to untangle the mess. Meanwhile, over 20 per cent of all homes with mortgages in the U.S. have negative equity — meaning the current house value is less than the mortgage. Under this condition, and different from Canada, they can just walk away, and mail the keys back to the bank. The U.S. government has issued trillions of dollars so far to stimulate the economy in order to end the recession, and it is not back on track so far. The U.S. is now doing a second round “injection.” In the U.S. Congress and Senate, major confrontations are likely as the opposing parties argue about whether and how to stimulate the economy. The Republicans, with their new majority, have committed

to stop much of the current effort. So, no clear strategy to stimulate the economy, and in any case a long way to go. In this very bipartisan atmosphere, many believe the recession will remain for quite some time. Canada and B.C. are getting a spillover effect — low inflation, a slow increase in our economy and a slow recovery of jobs from our unemployment rate of 7.5 per cent. For those who are unemployed, it’s taking longer to find work while employment insurance runs out and savings dwindle. Many others have fewer hours available in which to earn an income. This scenario argues against municipal taxes increasing beyond the four per cent already taken for this year, and restraining TransLink and Metro Vancouver from looking for more money for 2011. Deduct the extra you now pay to the HST, and many of us have a reduced standard of living. To top it all off, the promised income tax reduction has just been taken off the table. It’s time for a “time out” on taxes. It’s time for local governments to hold the line — no tax increases — for a year or so until things get back on track.

November 20, 2010 The Delta Optimist A11 Letters to the Editor

Support Eliza Olson in bid to be Canada’s Champion of Change Editor: Over seven years ago when Olav Naas and I came up with the Hoover/Naas proposal, we always firmly believed the one thing that would definitely stop the South Fraser Perimeter Road being built along its original design route was Burns Bog. Naas had done major work in the bog and we were sure the engineering difficulty, cost and irreversible environmental damage the SFPR would create would preclude it from being built in that location north of the bog. After all, even the Romans knew enough not to build a road through a swamp! Well, we underestimated the ability of the Liberal government to go beyond all reason and common sense, so the SFPR is under

construction as originally planned. One of the best things to come from my experience with Hoover/Naas was to meet Eliza Olson and her husband Wally. These two marvelous individuals have given decades of their lives towards saving Burns Bog and teaching thousands about the importance of the bog to Delta and the entire Lower Mainland. In order to critique the SFPR I had to educate myself on the bog, how it lives, what harms it, and the multitude of good things it does for plant and animal life around it. Burns Bog is the lungs of the Lower Mainland, and is the largest consumer of carbon dioxide on the west coast of B.C. Olson has worked tirelessly to defend and promote the bog, and has received numerous awards

for her efforts. But right now she is among the 10 finalists to qualify for an award from the CBC as “Canada’s Champion Of Change,” as chosen from hundreds of submissions. For all the people who receive this newspaper this is a tremendous opportunity. Not only do you have the ability to vote for this honour to be bestowed on one of the hardest working volunteers that Delta has ever had, but you also have the opportunity to turn a spotlight through the CBC, and maybe even internationally, on the very real possibility the SFPR might do everlasting damage to Burns Bog. I respectfully request you and your family go to the CBC website at www. cbc.ca/change/vote2.html and each place a vote for Olson. There is no question

Eliza Olson Bog advocate she deserves the recognition, and the opportunity to show all of Canada the folly of the SFPR the Campbell Liberal government has dropped on Delta would simply be a bonus, and help Olson in her continuing efforts to preserve Burns Bog for future generations. Please tell your friends about this; vote early and vote often! Greg Hoover

Little girl’s parents are the ones who should be shown compassion

Editor: Re: Show compassion for woman who must live with crash, letter to the editor Nov. 17 I think Peter Jensen needs to read the definition of compassion. I wonder if Carol Berner would give the parents of Alexa Middelaer the same “compassion” if they were responsible for killing one of her children by driving carelessly. I was severely injured in an accident. I was a pedestrian in a crosswalk and I was hit at 55 km/h (60 km/h is usually fatal) by a driver not paying attention. I was lucky, I survived. I think we should remember little Alexa will never go thorough graduation, her teens, get married, have children, things we all take for granted, thanks to yet another driv-

er not paying attention. I know whatever sentence carried out on Berner will not bring Alexa back, but she must be held responsible for taking a life, or is responsibility a four-letter word now? Alexa’s parents get to visit a grave on her birthdays. Is 2.5 years such a hardship to Berner? It astounds me how some drivers do not realize the vehicles they are driving are weapons when driven without due care and attention, and when something terrible happens, do not want to take responsibility for their actions. Come on people, stand up and be accountable for your actions, and give the compassion where it is due .... to the parents of a dead four-year-old. Chrissie Harvey

Modest growth rate if housing units divided equally Stiffer sentences are needed Editor: Re: Delta must meet Metro quota, letter to the editor, Nov. 10 Thanks to Ed Ries for his explanations about the population growth predictions that are contained in the new Metro Regional Growth Strategy bylaw. He points out that Delta council seemed to think that Delta’s “fair share” should be concentrated in Tsawwassen.

The Metro bylaw, now up for public hearing, shows a guesstimate that Delta will grow by 6,000 units by 2021. This breaks down to about 1,500 units for Tsawwassen based on existing population proportions between North Delta, Ladner and Tsawwassen. This would give about 4,000 new residents in Tsawwassen for a growth rate of two per cent per annum.

However, the bylaw also guesses the growth rate for the whole of Delta by 2041 would be an overall 13,300 units. Tsawwassen’s share of this would be about 3,325 units. This would give about 8,850 new residents in Tsawwassen over 30 years for a growth rate of 1.5 per cent. We have all heard of “lies, damned lies, and statistics” so it’s worth remem-

bering the guesses in the Regional Growth Strategy are planners’ predictions, nothing more. What will actually happen is in the lap of the gods ... There is nothing that demands the destruction our community though. One hopes that a new Tsawwassen Area Plan bylaw, as promised by Coun. Bruce McDonald, will reflect reality. Peter Duffey

for the sake of the victims

Editor: Re: Sentence limited by ‘imperfect system,’ Nov. 17 As the mother of a beautiful, bright young lady, Dr. Shelley Anne Martin, who was killed by an impaired driver three years ago, I, too, think it is terrible that Carol Berner received such a light sentence and that she has the nerve to appeal it. Our whole justice system smells in regards to those who are impaired and kill or seriously injure others. We have to get stiffer sentences for the sake of the victims and excellent articles such as this keep the public aware. Michele Martin

Offering assistance As many may know from a previous column I wrote, I had surgery in early September to repair a torn tendon in my foot, and so have spent the past 10 weeks in a wheelchair, and now on crutches. Fortunately I am blessed with colleagues in ministry, a great neighbourhood and family members, who have all been amazing in assisting me. I was reminded recently that many in our community are not so fortunate. Perhaps you live alone, far from family; perhaps worshipping with a faith community has not been part of your experience; perhaps you are simply shy and reluctant to seek assistance.

The cutbacks in our hospital Spiritual Care Department last year meant we are now unable to minister to many people who are anxious and afraid when they, or a loved one, is ill or in crisis, unless we are informed of such a need. During the upcoming festive season many in our community will feel lost and alone. Please, if you know of someone who could use a word of encouragement at any time, see how you can help and, if necessary, get in touch with one of the 12 churches in our area.

One-act festival hits SDSS Students have ‘massive amount of ownership’ of plays at annual event

BY

DAVE WILLIS

dwillis@delta-optimist.com

S

outh Delta Secondary drama students are busy preparing for the school’s annual one-act play festival that’s set to begin later this month. They’re not only acting in the plays but directing them as well. “The kids have a massive amount of ownership over what they’re doing, which is of course the objective of the student directed one-act festival,” says SDSS drama teacher Paige Hansen. “It’s a constant hive of activity from three until seven o’clock in here. It’s just crazy.” The one-act line up consists mostly of comedies. “I find the students tend to gravitate towards comedies and they tend to do a really good job of them,” says Hansen. “In the rehearsal process, a lot of improvisation is done. I think teenagers are natural improvisers. I think they end up adding to their plays. They bring a lot of their own humour to the work that the playwright’s already given them.” The classic children’s story The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe will also be staged as part of the festival. “It’s the classic C.S. Lewis story. If you loved

the story, you’ll love the play,” says Jacob Wolstencroft, who along with fellow Grade 12 student Hannah Vaartnou is co-directing the play. Wolstencroft says the cast of 22 is devoted to the

production. “They have been really good at taking on their own leadership in their own parts. It’s really come together,” he says. Vaartnou notes a couple challenges include the

larger cast size and directing her peers. “It’s a bit more of a challenge bridging the gap between being a friend and being a director,” she says. Jemma Dash, a Grade 11 who’s at the helm of a com-

edy called 1-900-Desperate, is enjoying the directing experience. “It’s my first time directing and I know that I have to do it next year because it’s been such a good experience. It’s nice to be in

charge for once. It’s really cool.” Beau Bridge, who’s in Grade 12, is directing The Last Dance, a drama about a girl who owns a rundown old dance studio she inherited from her parents. He’s also playing the only other character in the play. “Sometimes it can be really conflicting because being on the stage, it’s hard to be able to look at it and see how it is. But also it benefits you because it gives you a feeling of the character,” he says. Bridge says the festival’s lineup is “really entertaining.” “They’re directed by the students so the whole community gets to see how the students are doing with it and see what they can do. People generally leave with a smile on their face.” The one-act festival runs Tuesday, Nov. 30, Wednesday, Dec. 1 and Friday, Dec. 3 at 7 p.m. There are two matinees, one on Nov. 30 at noon and another on Dec. 3 (which is sold out). Evening tickets cost $8 each or $16 for all three nights. Matinee tickets are $2. The box office phone number is 604-943-7532. Former Delta secondary drama teacher Janet Worrall will be adjudicating the plays.

Southpointe staging Comedy of Errors at arts centre BY

DAVE WILLIS

dwillis@delta-optimist.com

D

rama students at Southpointe Academy will be taking a shot at some Shakespeare next week. They’re set to stage The Comedy of Errors at the Tsawwassen Arts Centre on Nov. 25, 26 and 27. “I just wanted them to understand Shakespeare was a little more accessible

than it may seem than when they read it in English class. I thought the experience would be good for them from that point of view,” says new Southpointe drama teacher Greg Kean. The cast is comprised of students from grades 9 through 12. The Comedy of Errors is one of Shakespeare’s earliest plays and is really, really funny, Kean says. “It’s about two sets of

twins who are separated at birth. They stumble into the same place at the same time and are mistaken for each other for the entire play.” While originally set in Ephesus, the Southpointe production will take place in 1940s era New Orleans. Kean, a longtime professional actor, says he’s looking to provide the community with theatrical experiences that are worthwhile, fun, thought-provoking

and entertaining while at Southpointe. Kean, who has an advanced degree in theatre from Cornell University, was a department head at the Vancouver Institute of Media Arts for the past few years. He was a regular on the TV show Dead Like Me. The Comedy of Errors will be staged at 7:30 p.m. each night. Tickets cost $10; $5 for seniors.

Jerry Doucette will headline a concert next Saturday to benefit the Deltassist Toy Depot.

“Sam and Luke’s set was crazy last year, the crowd loved them,” said Boychuk. Then at 9 p.m., Doucette, best known for the hit song Mama Let Him Play, will storm the stage with his commanding showmanship and beat-driven songs that always pack the dance floor. Admission to the event is a new unwrapped toy for donation to the Deltassist Toy Depot.

Toys for infants and teens are most in need. For a complete list of toy suggestions visit www. deltassist.com/christmasprograms.html. Those planning to attend are encouraged to come early as there is limited seating. The pub is located at 6100 Ferry Road in Captain’s Cove Marina in Ladner.

Incognito returns to Tsawwassen Legion Last fall Incognito absolutely packed the house at the Tsawwassen Legion to help out the venue in its quest to become a blues destination south of Vancouver. Incognito will return on Friday, Nov. 26 to play some serious blues in a show set to start at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are priced at $15. This will be a popular show so the Legion recommends booking tickets early by calling 604-943-0232. The Tsawwassen Legion is getting set for a great fall of Friday night music geared towards the blues. This combined with the regular Sunday 5 p.m. Blues Jam is getting well supported by

local musicians and even some as far away as Chicago. Guests at the local Sunday jams have included noted performers such as Jerry Doucette, Sibel Thraser, Gil and Ellen, Guitar Marty, Tom Bobardt, Tony Barton, members of Delta 88 and South Side Vibe, plus many others known by local Blues lovers. Some have performed at high profile venues such as the Yale Hotel, River Rock Casino and Carnival Cruise Lines. The Tsawwassen Legion donates nearly $35,000 annually to local needy organizations and appreciates all the support from those that attend these functions.

This old gal was found sad and lonely and in need of some help. The people who found her believe she was abandoned. Matilda came into the shelter EXTREMELY MATTED and thin! Matilda is a much happier kitty now that she has a warm bed. She is a senior girly and is hyperthyroid so on a very cheap medication. Because of this she has a special reduced adoption price. What is most important is that she finds a wonderful, big hearted person with time and love to share!

uno award-winner Jerry Doucette will headline a show at Ladner’s Rusty Anchor Pub next Saturday to benefit the Deltassist Toy Depot. Doucette, a platinumselling artist and Ladner resident, will again team up with Ken Boychuk, legendary Hammond B3 musician, to present the second annual show. It will run from 5 to 10 p.m. Sponsored by the Rusty Anchor Pub, organizers say the event promises to be bigger and better than last year. “In addition to awardwinning players, we have a great lineup of local talent,” said Boychuk. “We’re all playing for the kids ... trying again to bring a smile to Delta’s children’s faces this Christmas. “Last year we raised thousands of dollars worth of toys and we hope to do even better this year.” Delta 88 opens the festivities at 5 p.m. followed by many talented Ladner musicians. At 8 p.m., award-winning blues brothers and guitarists, Sam and Luke, return to the stage with their band. The brothers, who recently performed live on the TV show Urban Rush, are representing B.C. at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis next year.

Edgar Dunning's family want to give heartfelt thanks and appreciation to everyone who helped organize and took part in the wonderful Celebration of Life.

Our third place winner, Sandi Holliday, added weight training to her regime to help her lose the weight and started packing her own food when she travels. Anyone who has dieted before knows that eating in restaurants can be challenging. It is tough to have the willpower to choose the right meals on the menu, and when you do choose those items you still do not have control over how much sodium is in them, whether the vegetables are fresh, how much oil was used, etc. Lucky for Holliday, packing her own meals was an option, and she planned ahead and was ready. Other tools participants used to help them with their weight loss were: • Drank more water. Water is crucial to any weight loss program. The stomach cannot differentiate between hunger and thirst. Next time you feel “hungry” try a glass of water and then wait about 20 minutes before eating. You may find that you really don’t need food. • One of them had a target outfit and an upcoming trip that helped to keep them motivated. I recommend hanging your target outfit somewhere where you can see it. • Walking after dinner. Each of the participants walked after dinner. This not only helped them to burn some extra calories, it also aided in digesting their meals. • Increased their intake of fruit and vegetables and they all limited their intake of breads, pastas, rice, sodium and white flour. • And, finally, I recommend rewarding yourself when you have a reached a milestone in your weight loss journey.

good ol’ fashioned calorie restriction, with lots of exercise. Just recently I saw these same principles at work, yet again, for a number of people in my Weight Loss Challenge. Each of the top three used the motto of “eating less and moving more” and lost between eight and 11 per cent of their total body weight within a six-week time frame. Our winner, Brad Smith, lost a whopping 11.49 per cent of his body weight and attributed a lot of his success to food journaling. He used the website www.fitday.com, which is a great weight loss tool that allows you to log your food and exercise for the day to keep track of your calories taken in, as well as calories burned with exercise. Food journaling also helped educate Smith about the value of a calorie. Prior to the challenge he did not have a clue what a side of nachos, a few beers and a bag of peanuts at a football game would cost him around the waistline. Once he realized he was eating a jaw-dropping 3,000 calories, he quickly made the required adjustments to support his weight loss goals. Our second place winner, Norm Safry, used calorie restriction as well as walking as his weight loss tools. Regardless of how he felt, he forced himself to get on his treadmill everyday. He admits that at first he found it challenging and could only complete 40 minutes a session, but by the end of the six weeks he was walking for an hour straight at a steep incline, and sometimes doing this twice a day. Safry also feels that having a strong support system helped him lose the weight. His wife joined him on his weight loss journey and his doctor encouraged him throughout.

Deltassist appeals for public’s help Donations have been slow to come in for Deltassist Family and Community Services’ annual Toy Depot. The local social services agency is asking for the community’s help once again to provide underprivileged children with toys for Christmas. In 2009, Deltassist distributed toys to more than 700 children, a significant increase from 2008. Relying solely on donations from the community, the goal is to meet the needs of registered lower income families that access the service. Toys are needed for children up to 16 years of age.

Looking for something for your kids to do on the next non-instructional day? If they’re in primary grades, Delta libraries invite parents and caregivers to bring them to their local library for some free entertainment. On Friday, Nov. 26, drop in for one of the following hour-long programs: • Ventriloquist Kellie Haines visits the Ladner Pioneer Library. Haines draws on her background in theatre, puppetry, dance and clowning as she explores a wide variety of topics with

humour, compassion and boundless energy. • Mike’s Critters come to Tsawwassen Library, bringing a collection of reptiles, amphibians, birds, insects, arachnids and mammals. Children will be captivated and educated by some weird and wonderful creatures. • Joseph the Magician appears at the George Mackie Library, prepared to enchant children with his fun and exciting magic show. All programs run from 2 to 3 p.m.

are infants (up to two years) and teens (13 to 16). For teen gift suggestions log on to www.deltassist.com. New, unwrapped toys may be dropped off at the Deltassist office in Ladner, 4891 Delta St., Monday to Friday, 9:30 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m. Donations would be appreciated before Dec. 3, but will be accepted until Dec. 24. The deadline to register for attendance at the toy depot is Dec. 3. The deadline to register for a food hamper is Dec. 10. Applicants must apply in person at a Deltassist office and provide proof of address, proof of income and care cards for their children.

The Tsawwassen Animal Hospital’s fundraiser for its Delta Homeless Animal Fund had a “great turnout” earlier this month. Over 100 people came out and over $4,000 was raised, said Jane Milner, the animal hospital’s associate veterinarian. “This money goes a long way to covering our foreseeable costs for 2011,” she said in an e-mail. A silent auction, which local businesses and friends

of the clinic contributed to, raised $3,000 while pet owners donated $1,000 to have their animal’s nails trimmed. The Tsawwassen Animal Hospital treats sick or injured animals and performs spay and neuter surgeries on feral and semiferal cats. Over 600 feral or semiferal cats have been spayed or neutered since the Delta Homeless Animal Fund started in 2002.

A new name, a new logo and a new slogan meant new signage for KinVillage, formerly the Kinsmen Retirement Centre. The TOOBs, a local service organization, recently presented a cheque for $1,500 to KinVillage to assist with the cost for the lighted sign over the community centre. “All funds we generate go right back into the community,” said Greg Watts, vice-president of TOOBs. “We were happy to help. KinVillage serves the community as does TOOBs. It is a great facility.”

Tsawwassen forward named to Team Pacific

Playoff football

PHOTO

BY

MARK BOOTH

South Delta Rams Thomas Franklin heads up field during last Sunday’s Vancouver Mainland Football League semi-final playoff game against the Langley Outlaws at Dennison Park. The Rams’ saw their post-season drive come to an end after a 36-14 loss. Two other local teams remain in the VMFL title hunt. The Pee Wee Rams defeated Richmond 21-0 in their quarter-final game and will face Cloverdale on Sunday. The Bantam Rams also advanced to the final four where they will meet Langley after blanking Westside 34-0.

Ryan Olsen will be spending the holiday season getting his first taste of international hockey. The 16-year-old forward from Tsawwassen has been named to Team Pacific that will be participating at the 2011 World Under Hockey Challenge to be held Dec. 29-Jan. 4 in Winnipeg. Team Pacific is comprised of 11 players from B.C. and 11 more from Alberta. This week’s roster announcement culminates an extensive selection process that began Ryan last spring and included provincial camps held over the summer that identified a set number of players. They were further accessed by a selected group of high performance evaluators during the first part of the current season. “A hockey team is like a giant puzzle and though there was some very tough decisions through this process, we as an entire staff feel we have the right pieces that will fit together, both on and off the ice, that will give us the best opportunity

for success at the tournament,” said Team Pacific head coach and former NHL blueliner Robert Dirk. Olsen, 16, joins some elite company of other former South Delta Minor Hockey products who have played for Team Pacific including Chicago Blackhawks star Brent Seabrook and NHL draft picks Brandon McMillan (Anaheim), Brendan Gallagher (Montreal) and Josh Nicholls (Toronto). Olsen is currently in his rookie seaOlsen son in the Western Hockey League with the Saskatoon Blades where he happens to be teammates with Nicholls. Playing mostly third-line centre, he has a goal and an assist in 20 games. He had an impressive season in the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League with the Greater Vancouver Canadians — producing a team-high 47 points in 38 games, including 24 goals. Olsen was a first round selection of the Blades in the 2009 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft.

Devils settle for 5th after heartbreaking loss

Senior girls field hockey team don’t lose a game in regulation time at provincials but still fall in penalty strokes The first place finish in pool play set-up a quarter-final match-up with West Vancouver and the winner was guaranteed to be playing for a medal. South Delta controlled much of the play but it was the Highlanders who opened the scoring with just three minutes remaining. The Devils dug deep and potted the equalizer with 90 seconds to go and had all the momentum heading into sudden-death overtime. They failed to capitalize on numerous chances and the game went to penalty strokes where the Highlanders prevailed.

Tides at Tsawwassen Pacific Standard Time. Height in feet

“In sudden death we were all over (them) but could not get the final touch,” said South Delta coach Neil McLennan. “It was one of those ugly sporting moments ... sometimes you lose a game even though you outplayed the opposition. The girls know though that they had played really well. “The umpire also called back a goal we scored for some reason that no one really figured out. That decision cost us the game.” The Devils rebounded from the heartbreaking loss to defeat Heritage Woods 2-0 in what was a rematch of the Fraser Valley cham-

pionship game. They closed out the tournament with an impressive 4-1 over North Shore powerhouse Handsworth to secure fifth. “The last game was very, very good,” said McLennan. “The girls played really well against a tough North Shore team so that was a great way to end the season.” The program’s longtime mentor has always taken a low-key approach when it comes to his teams’ chances of contending for a B.C. title, despite this group featuring three national level players. He insists there are just far too many intangibles that need to swing the

right way in a tournament format that sees a team play five games in three days. Instead, he looks at the overall picture and that’s his girls becoming better players and people. “The outcome may not have been exactly been what the girls were striving for but they played very well every game, were never outworked and never lost their concept of ‘team’ both on or off the field,” he said. “These are excellent measures of success as well and, in the grand scheme of things, are more important!

It’s considered the proverbial hump game of the provincial “AAA” girls field hockey championships and this time it cost the South Delta Sun Devils a chance to win their first-ever gold medal. Despite not losing a single game in regulation time, the province’s second ranked squad could do no better than a fifth place finish at last week’s 16-team event in Victoria. The script unfolded accordingly in round-robin play as the Sun Devils rolled past Eric Hamber and Glen Eagle by 5-0 scores, then rallied for a 3-2 win over Oak Bay.

Golden effort in Richmond for U16 Footmen Lacrosse team upsets league rivals en route to 1st place finish at tourney

Ice Hawks & Sockeyes ready to collide again

The Delta Ice Hawks and Richmond Sockeyes are headed on another mid-season collision course. Despite owning the top record in the Pacific International Junior Hockey League (17-3-2) and riding an eight-game win streak, including a 4-2 triumph over the Ridge Meadows Flames on Tuesday night, the Ice Hawks can’t shake their cross-river rivals. The Sockeyes have been equally as impressive with a 16-3-3 record and enter the weekend trailing Delta by just a single point. The teams will meet for the third time this season next Thursday at Minoru Arena (7:30 p.m.) and if the earlier games are any indication, it should be another night of drama. The Sockeyes erased a 4-1 third period deficit to win the first meeting 5-4 in a penalty shootout. The return match-up in Ladner also went to a shootout with the Ice Hawks prevailing in the ninth round. Both teams also need to worry about the North Delta Devils (16-6-1) who are also very much in the first place mix in the PIJHL’s Tom Shaw Conference. Rookie Aaron Merrick scored one goal and set-up another to lead the Ice Hawks past the Flames. The hosts never trailed in the contest — opening up 2-0 and 3-1 leads. Kye Benjaminsen, John Proctor and Kody Botterill had the other goals, while Nick Enegren was solid in net, turning aside 28 shots. The Ice Hawks visit the Mission Icebreakers on Sunday and return home Tuesday to host the Grandview Steelers at 7:30 p.m.

Delta Footmen celebrate their first place finish at the inaugural Roadrunner Romp field lacrosse tournament in Richmond.

The Delta Footmen U16 tier one field lacrosse team showed exactly what its potential is at last weekend’s Roadrunner Romp Tournament in Richmond. The locals produced five straight wins to take home the gold medal, including an impressive result against the host team in the championship games. Delta had little trouble in its opening games against lower tiered opponents — defeating Coquitlam 15-0 and a combined squad from New West and Seattle, 14-1. It would be a much sterner test in their final round game against Ridge Meadows — a team that sat fifth in the league standings, compared to the Footmen’s ninth position. However, they rose to the challenge and produced a 14-6 win to secure top spot in their group. A semi-final tilt with Seattle proved to be a thriller as the American squad pulled even with just a minute remaining. With what can be described as nothing more than a determined press by the Footmen, Delta’s Taylor Northway scored with only seven seconds left on the clock to win the game to move his team into the finals against Richmond. Having lost 13-8 to the Roadrunners in regular league play less than two weeks ago, the team pulled together and handily defeated the hosts 14-5. Spencer Achtymichuk, Lucas Pereira, Taylor Northway, Jon Phillips, and Ben Wagner were terrific in midfield, while Stephen Alexander, Jeff Mellis and Tanner Taylor led the way on the attack. The defensive line of Scott McQuarrie, Will Schwan, Evan Messenger, Jordan Quitzau and Matt Keith held Richmond’s attack back from the goal, where Denis Clarke played an outstanding game. Missing the two playoff games due to a prior commitment was Ryan Anderson and out on injury was Justin Leclair. Coaches Shawn Williams and Mike Vincent were not only thrilled with the outcome of the game and tournament, but more importantly how this could be the turning point for the team after a shaky start. They hope to keep the momentum going in league play. Game MVP’s through the tournament were Achtymichuk, Phillips, Alexander, Northway and Clarke, in the championship game.

South Delta Pee Wee A1 Storm hockey team celebrate its dramatic tournament win in Langley

Storm win Langley tourney

a physical game and with a solid performance in net from Brenn Traher, doubled the Rockets 4-2. The result set the stage for a rematch with Abbotsford and, this time, the Storm were well-prepared. The teams exchanged second period goals with Cavin Tilsley converting a feed from Beck Malenstyn for the South Delta goal. Abbotsford was nursing a 2-1 third period lead when Nick Wicks got the puck back to the point where blueliner Riley Hayles wired home the equalizer with 3:41 remaining. A five-minute four-on-four overtime session couldn’t determine a winner and neither could the initial five rounds of the shootout. Hayles then broke the deadlock when his shot found its way through the 5-hole to give his team the advantage. Goaltender Jeremy Kelleway then came up with a huge stop to secure the gold medal.

South Delta Pee Wee A1 Storm avenged its only loss in dramatic fashion to capture last weekend’s Gil Martin Pee Wee AAA Memorial Tournament in Langley. The local rep hockey team stumbled out of the gate in its opening round-robin game, falling 7-1 to the Abbotsford A1 Hawks. The Storm started to find their legs and rebounded with a 3-0 win over the Cloverdale A1 Colts. The momentum continued as the Storm overwhelmed the Comox Valley Chiefs 10-1. They were expecting a tough test in their final preliminary game against the Chilliwack AAA Bruins who were fresh off a 3-3 tie against the unbeaten Hawks. South Delta was ready for the challenge — producing a 5-0 win to lock up second place in their pool and set-p a semi-final game against the Kelowna Rockets. South Delta came out hard and played

December 8 1915 - November 5 2010. My Mother loved life, she reluctantly had it stolen from her by congestive heart failure. Happy was born and schooled in Ladner but lived the past 40 years, briefly, at Thetis Island and then many years at Qualicum Beach on Vancouver Island. She golfed and gardened, visited the theatre, the Casino and foreign lands; was happy to drive friends to appointments and celebrate their birthdays at luncheons. Her keen sense of humour extended to occasionally arriving in costume. As her daughter, Marilee, my husband Ben and her grandson Barry, we are left with wonderful memories but an aching heart. Sharing those feelings are her sister Forres, several loved nieces and nephews, neighbours, dear friends and extraordinary neighbours, Daphne and Dennis. Happy was predeceased by Fred, her husband of 70 years. and her sisters, Lenore Allison (Esplen) and Mary (a.k.a Bubb) Strath (Esplen). A Celebration of Life will be held at Qualicum Beach Memorial Golf Club, Monday November 22, 2010, from 2pm - 4pm. Please bring you best 'Happy' stories. I Love You Mom

Marjorie was born in Vancouver where she attended St. Anthony’s College, Queen’s Hall School for Girls, and in 1945 received her Diploma of Music from the Toronto Conservatory of Music. She was an accomplished Music Teacher and Composer who worked with the late Kay Armstrong. Marjorie composed the music for the Legend of The Black Swan. Marjorie spent many happy years with the Girl Guides, camping and enjoying the outdoors. When Marjorie moved to Tsawwassen in 1966, she taught music to many young people whose lives were definitely inspired by her. Janice and Deborah were her star pupils who continued to stay in touch. Aunt Marj will be lovingly remembered and missed by her many nephews and nieces, their families and her friends. Special thanks to the staff at Westshore Laylum for their loving care. In lieu of flowers, donations to CNIB would be gratefully accepted. Memorial Service to be held on Friday, November 26, 2010 at 1:00 pm at All Saint’s Anglican Church, 4755 Arthur Drive, Ladner, BC.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: A month of mellow understanding, gentle love, intellectual pursuits, legal, travel, cultural and religious involvements begins Monday morning. As your planet (Mars) is in this same area until early December, the first two weeks of this period will be intense, memorable and “high stakes.” You could fall in love, engage in a major lawsuit, travel afar – something unusual, a once-in-a-decade thing. Be honest, true-hearted; if you are not, the rest of December, into January, could bring retribution from higher-ups. Someone is ready for love with you. You’re romantic, Friday/Saturday! Taurus April 20-May 20: The weeks ahead accent depths, mysteries, investments and debts, lust, lifestyle changes, health diagnosis and cures. Your subconscious desires swell to the surface. A big decision or commitment might be demanded of you. For the next two weeks, these matters are more intense, more “impatient” than usual – and might also have more “strings attached” than is healthy. Be cautious, don’t be rushed into a situation or promise. Chase money Sunday to Tuesday – luck’s mixed, so be alert. Errands, paperwork, casual friends frustrate Wednesday, succeed Thursday. Home, family Friday onward. Gemini May 21-June 20: Drudgery ends, fresh horizons blow in, now to late December. A “quiet” relationship might take off like a rocket, or a new one begin. Links, confrontations, opportunities, challenges, competition, enmity, attraction – all grow intense. But in all the intensity, even in enmity, there is a definite streak of friendship, buoyancy and hope. A mingling effect can occur – e.g., love/hate, or you might become “best enemies.” Relocation and business/fame opportunities arise. Maturity, flexibility, diplomacy and an eagerness to join are your success tools. You’re energetic, charming this week!

Cancer June 21-July 22: Work and health issues loom large for the next four weeks. These are most intense to Dec. 7, as work swells and the stakes rise in your reputation and career zones. A working partnership might be volatile, but if you can keep tempers level, a splendid success is possible. Rest, withdraw to plan and contemplate Sunday to Tuesday eve. Midweek, your energy and charisma step up a notch – start projects, tasks. Chase money, or spend, Friday/Saturday. This month ahead will favour machinery. This week, buy it Friday, but watch for electrical/tech faults. Romance? Next week. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The weeks ahead offer romance, pleasure, beauty, creative surges and speculative urges.This is your time to accent your own desires, to take a chance on your talents – to expand and express yourself! A semi-romantic relationship could take off with fireworks the first two weeks, or a new, intense romance could spark. However, neither of these is likely to emerge into a stable marriage. You might wed, swiftly and impulsively, but create huge tensions as a result. Be patient. 2011 is your time. Your hopes, popularity soar early week. Rest, midweek. You shine, Friday/Saturday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Home, children, diet, nutrition, Mother Nature, gardening, parks, rest, hibernation, security, real estate – these form your “best world” for the month ahead. You might invest in property, or renovate or improve your present abode, especially over the immediate two weeks ahead. That’s good, BUT be aware of two “unforeseens” – 1) an unpredictable reaction by your mate, and/or 2) electrical issues. Make sure both are “settled” before you begin. You’ve had a bit of a wild ride in relationships over the last seven years. Decide now with whom you’ll go to the future.

Nov. 21 - Nov. 27

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The weeks ahead feature travel, paperwork, errands, details, casual acquaintances and siblings, and communications. Usually this would be a fine time to buy phones, computers, etc. – but lemons lurk until Dec. 7 (and to some degree until March 2011) so delay such purchases if you can. As in the last few weeks, you might meet a “viable” potential mate while travelling or talking. But here, too, glitches exist – long-term tension and/or an unpredictable relationship. Patience, Libra – real love’s coming! Enjoyment, happiness abound this week! Be ambitious Thursday (morning best). Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The month ahead emphasizesmoney,possessions,sensualinvolvements and memory or rote learning. (This is always your best 30 days of the year to memorize anything – vocabulary, foreign languages, math techniques, etc.) Sensual = anything from good drapes, beautiful paintings, to someone’s closeness. Buy/sell, seek new clients, ask for a pay raise. BUT in all this, go slow before Dec. 8, as pitfalls exist. E.g., you might get too sensual and alienate a romantic prospect, or push too fast for a pay raise and spark tension. Love, legal, intellectual, travel success Thursday! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness rise now through December! Your sexual magnetism, determination and “wilfulness” have already grown over the last few weeks – now these increase also. Start new projects, ask favours, see and be seen, attend “in person,” get your way, negotiate – you’re in charge! But, especially until Dec. 7, don’t recklessly overpower other’s needs, desires and sensibilities, or you could create “invisible rebellions” that erupt later, just when you need allies. This week’s happy. Financial, sexual luck soars Thursday! Love, wisdom Friday/Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Take a break. During the four weeks ahead, rest, contemplate and plan. Your energy will ebb. Attend to government-related tasks, institutional and charitable involvements. Fulfil obligations, but don’t volunteer for new ones. Avoid the spotlight. Avoid places where belligerent people gather – bars, dark alleys. Chores call Sunday to Tuesday – get them done. Relationships face you Tuesday eve through Thursday – be diplomatic, even evasive before Thursday. True friends, real loves, show Thursday. Mysteries, big finances, lifestyle decisions come Friday/Saturday – good results! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Friends, popularity, wish fulfilment, optimism, flirtation and happiness visit for the next few weeks! You might face an unexpected dilemma in which your money and your wishes don’t agree, and you might have to choose one. Pick the dream – maybe you can accomplish it for less. You might discover that the person you “possess” doesn’t mix well with your friends. Choose friends – but don’t listen to friends’ advice about money. Romance, flirtation, pleasure, a risk-taking mood buoy you Sunday to Tuesday. Tackle chores midweek. Exciting meetings Friday/Saturday – forgo eccentricity. Pisces Feb.19-March20:Yourcareer,neighbourhood prestige, relations with parents and bosses, are emphasized for the month ahead. I’ve already warned you that bosses are temperamental. That continues to Dec. 7, so be diplomatic, good-humoured. Expect unexpected reactions, results! Hustle to perform tasks, to meet deadlines. Bosses love eager screwups more than competent grouches. (In some fields, engineering, math, medicine, Pisces are truly favoured now.) Sink into “domestic rejuvenation” early week. Creative, romantic success Thursday. Tackle chores Friday/Saturday – practise safety Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
