Traffic safety

Banned driver steals wheels, again A thief sped around Langley on a motorcycle, and was arrested in Pitt Meadows. by Matthew Claxton

Despite a 50-year driving ban, a Lower Mainland man hopped on a stolen motorcycle and sped through Langley and several neighbouring communities. Police first spotted the stolen Kawaski motorcycle at about 1 p.m. in Langley, on 82nd Avenue near 200th Street. The driver was speeding and driving erratically, mak-

ing sudden U-turns and blasting through stop signs and red lights, said Sgt. Gord Elias of the Integrated Municipal Provincial Auto Crime Team (IMPACT). Officers with IMPACT didn’t pursue the driver, but kept him under surveillance as he headed into Surrey as far west as 176th Street, then came back to Langley and crossed the Golden Ears Bridge. He repeated his performance north of the river in Maple Ridge, and was finally arrested safely in Pitt Meadows in the 12000 block of 193rd Street. The 32-year-old now in custody has never had a B.C. driver’s licence, Elias said, but

he hasn’t let that stop him from getting behind the wheel. Over the years, he has accumulated a total of seven convictions for dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, and six convictions for driving while suspended. In December 2005, a judge banned him from driving for 50 years. The suspect will be 77 before he can apply for a learner’s permit. IMPACT officers are recommending the man be charged with possession of stolen property, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, and two counts of driving while suspended. They have also asked that he be kept in custody until his trial.

A local organizer for the antiHST petition says both Langley ridings are close to crossing the 10 per cent threshold. Shaun Sephton is organizing the drive to gather signatures against the HST in the Langley riding, and he says his unofficial count shows the total is just shy of the 4,315 names required. Petition collectors in the Fort Langley-Aldergrove riding are also closing in on their minimum number of 4,376 names. “We’re planning to keep going,” Sephton said. The petition drive run by Fight HST aims to force the government to introduce legislation to scrap the Harmonized Sales Tax. Although the government has no obligation to pass the law or even to hold a vote on it, organizers are still pressing ahead. Every riding in B.C. must have 10 per cent of its voters signed up for the petition process to work. Sephton said Fight HST’s goal is to hit at least 15 per cent, to have a sizeable cushion of names, in the event that some are found to be illegitimate by Elections BC. The petition process runs for 90 days and began on April 6, so Sephton is pleased it has already almost reached its goal. If Langley’s ridings move well past the 15 per cent mark, local volunteers may switch to helping out at least part time in ridings that still need to get more names, Sephton said.


Join in the annual walk that’s been going on for 48 years On Sunday this weekend, the Langleys are joining forces to put on an event that has become a local tradition. The Township and City are cohosting the 48th annual Langley Walk on Sunday. The free event is at Willoughby Community Park (next to Langley Events

Centre) 12:30-5 p.m., with the walk itself starting at 1:30 (registration starts at 12:30). Live entertainment from 12:30-4 p.m. includes a freestyle soccer demonstration, singers Joe Given and Alicia Ponak, Polynesian dancers, face painting, bouncy castles, and the

opportunity to meet and play with members of the Langley Chiefs junior A hockey team. Over its 47-year history, the Langley Walk has celebrated the Langleys’ history, built community pride, promoted involvement in physical activity, and provided an opportunity for fun.

Among the local sponsors and donors: ToyTrades, Sudden Impact Branded Apparel & Promotional Products, and Parklane Home to name a few. The Chiefs will be there to sign autographs, meet and greet participants, and play some street hockey.

Raised voices were again heard in the Langley Township council chambers, as Councillor Grant Ward and Mayor Rick Green squared Grant Ward off Monday night. Township councillor The bone of contention was a series of advertisements for the monthly Mayor’s Forums Green has hosted since shortly after his 2008 election win. A local political blog, the Langley Record, recently posted documents related to the ad, and Ward claims they show Green wanted a larger, and more expensive, quarter page ad for the forums. The documents include a hand-drawn circle around the mock up of the Mayor’s Forum ad, and the hand-written notation “Larger.” “It will cost more,” and “‘The cost of doing business,’” appears in quotation marks in different handwriting. “It’s in full public view, in the public domain,” Ward said, demanding an apology from Green. “You made the comment that it’s the cost of doing business.” Green said he only intended for the words “drop in” to be made larger. “I did not have anything to do with the size of the ad,” Green said, adding that he was surprised at the ad’s size. The exchange became combative.

“I cannot believe what I’m hearing,” Green said. “Are you calling me a liar at this meeting?” Ward said he wouldn’t use that word, but added that he wasn’t sure what people watching the meeting might think. Coun. Kim Richter asked who posted the information on the Langley Record. The Record was started the day after Green and the current council were Rick Green sworn into office. It Township mayor has been relentlessly opposed to Green and most of his policies. The blog’s creator is anonymous, but it claims to have an “editorial board” of 15 people, including council watchers. Richter asked Ward flat-out if he had any relationship to the blog, had contributed material to it, or owned it. Ward said he may have put comments there, but was not the editor or owner. “It’s a very good blog,” Ward said. “I’d like to take ownership of it, but I don’t.” Ward also denied knowing who made the Freedom of Information request to get the ad documents. FOI request documents are themselves considered private under provincial legislation, and can’t be publicly viewed. As the raucous debate wound down, Coun. Steve Ferguson suggested removing the mayor’s picture from the ads, or changing the name to Mayor and Council’s Forum, but Green said he wouldn’t hear of it. The meetings have been called Mayor’s Forums since they began, he said.

Trustees balk at ‘forensic’ audit

You will not be able to purchase pressure-treated wood with 10 per cent or less moisture content because of the treating process. Therefore, the deck will be put down and finished afterwards. The sun will beat down on the surface, drawing out the moisture, and there goes your finish. Treated decks should be left to dry for one season before

The local teachers’ union still wants answers about Langley School District finances and its debt. by Heather Colpitts

School trustees got into a game of dueling definitions at Langley School Board’s meeting on Tuesday evening. The board opened the meeting with a statement saying it would not allow the term “forensic audit” to be used, while those in the gallery wouldn’t drop the term. The gallery featured several people wearing red shirts that said “Forensic Audit Now” and people who spoke to the board on the subject. The Langley Teachers’ Association hosted its Forensic Audit Barbecue on Monday and Tuesday evening, on the grounds of the W.C. Blair Recreation Centre because the district wouldn’t allow it on school district property. Many there wore the red shirts, which Heather Colpitts/Langley Advance were also worn Primary school teacher Kathy Nelson helped at a protest last dish up the green at the Langley Teachers’ Friday in front Association barbecue Tuesday. of the constituency office of Education Minister Margaret McDiarmid. At Tuesday’s meeting, Langley board chair Joan Bech maintained that a “forensic audit” is a financial review conducted when an organization suspects misappropriation of funds or embezzlement, and is used to gather evidence for trial, intended to detect illegal or criminal activity. “That’s not the situation we’re in,” she said. “It insinuates that current or former school district staff are criminals,” Bech said. “That’s wrong. It must stop.” She added that a forensic audit would be costly and take money away from education. As well, the district has also had the Deloitte examination of its books and now has the Auditor General as its auditor for the next few years. Four districts in B.C. have hired the Auditor General’s office. As well, the district has formed an audit committee consisting of trustees Steve Burton, Rob McFarlane, Bech, superintendent Cheryle Beaumont, secretary-treasurer Dave Greenan, and assistant secretary-treasurer Tally Bains. The committee was recommended by the Auditor General’s office. LTA vice president Gail Chaddock-Costello, appearing as one of many delegations at the board meeting, continued the union’s call for a forensic audit, prompting point-of-order complaints from some trustees who said the chair had already explained the term is not appropriate. Chaddock-Costello said the district needs to do a full accounting, so the community can understand the timeline of what happened. “Our question is who knew and when about the spending practices,” she said. The union said a forensic audit could also determine the real debt amount, who made the decision to spend $3 million on the Langley Events Centre, and how complicit the Ministry of Education was in failing to monitor the growing debt. During the meeting, Bech also called for groups to work together to solve the district’s problems. “We do not welcome slurs and attacks on school district employees who are doing their best to support student achievement in difficult times,” she said. Bech pointed to the continued attacks on the superintendent and the finance department. “If such a concerted campaign was waged by anyone else, against any other school district employees, these same individuals [doing the attacks now] would be the last to support it,” Bech said.

The Langley RCMP are hoping some recent arrests put a dent in rising theft rates. by Matthew Claxton

Theft is up, violence is down, Langley’s top cop reported to Township council this week. Supt. Derek Cooke, head of the Langley RCMP detachment, brought a mix of good and bad news as part of his quarterly report on Monday. “It’s been a bit of a mixed blessing,” Cooke said. In the Township, break and enters to businesses are up 30 per cent for this quarter, residential B&Es are up 21 per cent, and other types of thefts – from outbuildings or compounds – are up 50 per cent, Cooke said. A significant number of those thefts were in the industrial Port Kells area, and more community

safety officers are being deployed there, along with efforts made to educate local business owners about theft prevention. Many of the residential break and enters were in Brookswood, where Cooke said the good news is that three prolific offenders have been arrested in the last few weeks. One of the suspects was found running across 200th Street with a TV cradled in his arms, Cooke said. Two of the men may have been responsible for up to 50 per cent of all the recent break ins in the area, Cooke said. Auto theft was up 10 per cent, but thefts from parked cars declined five per cent. In another bit of good news, a prolific auto thief, who recently escaped from a provincial prison, was arrested in Langley with two large garbage bags full of stolen cigarettes in the back of a stolen car. “So he’s back in jail,” Cooke said. Mischief – mostly minor acts of vandalism – is up 45 per cent, a stat

Emergency response

Air Ambulance called to crash

One man was seriously hurt when a Camaro and a dump truck collided in Aldergrove. by Matthew Claxton

An Air Ambulance took a driver to hospital after his sports car slammed into a gravel truck early Thursday morning in Aldergrove. The crash took place around 3 a.m. at 16th Avenue and 264th Street, said assistant Township fire chief Bruce Ferugson. The collision tipped the gravel truck on its side and set the Camaro on fire, Ferguson said.

While the driver of the sports car was seriously hurt, he was conscious when he was loaded into the helicopter to be flown to hospital, Ferguson said. A number of other gravel truck drivers stopped at the scene of the crash used their fire extinguishers to control the flames from the burning car until firefighters could arrive, Ferguson said. Because of the size of the wreckage, it took until noon to investigate the crash and clear away the vehicles. Traffic was re-routed around a mile of 264th Street through the entire morning rush hour. The cause of the crash has not been released by Langley RCMP.

that may have been influenced by the warm weather in the first three months of the year. Finally, Cooke reported that drug related arrests increased by 26 per cent. That doesn’t necessarily mean that there are 26 per cent more addicts or dealers in Langley, Cooke said. “That would generally be indicative of increased enforcement,” he said. On the positive side, assaults were down 26 per cent, robberies down 46 per cent after the recent arrest of a bank robber, and arson was down 47 per cent. That number doesn’t include the arson spree earlier this month that struck dumpsters, and possibly an occupied home. Cooke revealed that police believe they know who set the fires. “We have a good suspect in that. We’re quite confident we know who did it,” Cooke said. Police have interviewed the man, and he knows he’s under suspicion, although no charges have been laid. Cooke also pointed out ongoing problems with marijuana grow operations. Among other issues, it takes a great deal of police manpower to dismantle them, and police still don’t know where legal, medical marijuana grows are located. However, some criminals are finding them by the smell, and legal growers have been violently ripped off. “From our perspective, the problem is the legislation simply does not meet our needs,” Cooke said. He also mentioned a recent attempted rip off of an illegal grow near the Gloucester area, in which the resident apparently fought off home invaders and was injured. Several charges have been laid against the resident. Police also found a legal grow op across the street from an elementary school. They found the person licensed to use the marijuana didn’t live there, nor did the person who was licensed to grow it.

Walk away ills Walk away your ills, instead of taking pills: that was Pete Swensson’s remarkably simply formula for dealing with whatever ails you. Swensson was Langley Township’s recreation director in 1963, and his maxim formed the basis of an annual Langley event that he organized for the first time that year – an event that quickly became a significant community tradition, and is now nearing its fifth decade. Over the past 47 years, literally thousands of people have taken part in the Langley Walk – walking away their ills, instead of taking pills. And right in line with Swensson’s thinking, WalkBC, a joint initiative of the Heart & Stroke Foundation of BC & Yukon and the BC Recreation & Parks Association, notes, “Walking is a simple way to improve overall wellbeing and reduce the chances of developing the health concerns associated with inactivity.” The beauty of walking is that it is free, can be done anywhere, and is a relatively easy, safe, and accessible form of exercise for most people. And the benefits, again according to WalkBC, are substantial: reducing the risk of coronary heart disease; lowering blood pressure; reducing high cholesterol; reducing body fat; enhancing mental wellbeing; increasing bone density; reducing the risk of cancer of the colon; helping to control body weight; helping osteoarthritis; and helping to increase flexibility and coordination. And it can be downright fun to get out with friends, family, and a whole community at an event like the Langley Walk. Swensson was definitely on the right track when he put all those Langleyites on a route to better health. Join the historically healthy fun at this year’s Langley Walk from Willoughby Park (next to LEC) on Sunday. Registration starts at 12:30 p.m., and walkers get underway at 1:30 p.m. – B.G.

Langley education

Board needs to ‘work together’ Dear Editor,

Your plea that “teachers need to work with, not against the superintendent” is a curious one [Work together, April 27 Opinion, Langley Advance]. Teachers have been trying for months, if not years, to work with not only the superintendent, but with the whole Langley School Board. It is not the teachers who need to be reminded.

Margaret Endersby, Langley

Teachers not responsible Dear Editor,

Langley’s teachers most definitely have a point [Work together, April 27 Opinion, Langley Advance]. Their point with regard to Cheryle Beaumont isn’t all that difficult to understand, if you take a moment to look at the circumstances from their perspective. The most significant cause of the school district’s financial crisis is longterm mismanagement of funds. Ultimately, full responsibility for the financial health of the district rests with the superintendent and trustees, and they have clearly not been diligent in the fulfillment of their primary responsibilities. Yet, they all still have their jobs. The auditors still have their jobs, too. But teachers have already been laid off, and more stand to join the ranks of the unemployed, as the necessary budget cuts take effect. I found it amazing that you were able to recognize that there is something wrong with the Langley School District, be unable to understand why the provincial government has not stepped in as it has in other lesser situations in other districts, but were unable to see that the teachers are not the ones holding the lion’s share of the responsibility for creat-

ing a history of distrust and ill feelings. I will not argue that their current course of action would appear to be counterproductive, but I am also at a loss to suggest a practical replacement plan. I understand their need to take action rather than stand by watching silently. You are absolutely right in stating that, for the kids’ sake, teachers will need to find a way to work with, not against the superintendent. In order to successfully overcome the challenges being faced by the district, all of the vested parties are going to need to work with each other.

Transparency lacking Dear Editor,

After reading your opinion [Work together, April 27 Opinion, Langley Advance], I was left wondering if anyone will investigate what has happened to create a debt of more than $14 million. I would also encourage the LTA to work with the superintendent, but it appears that the school board and senior management have not been transparent to its partner groups. Lastly, I find it interesting that the press releases from the district and reporters have now changed to “deficit.” Please note the following definitions: “debt” is something, typically money, that is owed or due; “deficit” is the amount by which something, especially a sum of money, is too small. Isn’t the correct financial situation: $8.3 million debt and, for the other $5.9 million, we don’t know how much of that will be debt or deficit?

With great sadness, I inform you of the passing of a Langley resident, Bunty Clements, on March 20, 2010. Bunty was, of course, one of the founders, along with her husband George Clements, of the Fur-Bearer Defenders Society. Together, they founded the society after confronting, first-hand, many leg-hold traps in a school community north of Prince George in the 1950s. Bunty and George Clements were the inventors of the humane bumper sticker of the 1970s: “Ban Leg-Hold Traps.” Together, they travelled the world in pursuit of their dream: to end the use of leg-hold traps and to educate people of the cruelty involved in the fur industry.

Volunteers cheered on participants of the 2010 Walk for MS, as they started their journey in front of Douglas Park Spirit Square. Stumph said there was a great sense of accomplishment as participants crossed the finish line, “whether they were walking for themselves or a loved one.” In addition to the national sponsors, the Langley walk is a community-supported event with many of the local businesses donating food and prizes for the post-walk festivities. Both Langley mayors – Rick Green (Township) and Peter Fassbender (City) – showed their support by attending and officially opening and closing the walk. The MS Walk is a critical part of the society’s fundraising efforts and is a significant program in funding research into the disease. MS is the most common neurological disease

affecting young adults in Canada, and Canadians have one of the highest rates of multiple sclerosis in the world. Every day, three more people in Canada are diagnosed with MS, and women are more than three times as likely to develop MS as men. MS can cause loss of balance, impaired speech, extreme fatigue, double vision, and paralysis. The next MS Fundraiser is the RONA MS Bike Tour – The Fraser Valley Grape Escape on June 5-6. This two-day riding adventure has cyclists pedaling through the Fraser Valley and visiting five local wineries. Visit www.mssociety. ca to see how you can get involved in raising funds to help those living with MS.

People of all ages and fitness levels came out in droves Sunday to support those living with multiple sclerosis (MS). The local 2010 Scotiabank MS Walk, which started at Douglas Park, was part of the MS Society of Canada’s largest event fundraiser. It was one of 160 walks involving more than 70,000 participants and volunteers coast-to-coast. In Langley City, about 200 people took part in either three or six kilometre walks/runs in support of funding research towards a cure for MS. “In addition to the walk participants, we had over 60 amazing volunteers who dedicated many hours to make this event a success,” said Shannon Stumph, volunteer coordinator for the Langley event. About $90,000 was raised at the Langley walk site, thanks in large part to an additional $50,000 single donation received this past week, which added to the total.

was working as a technician repairing commercial glass-washing machines. There was an urgent call from a hotel in Prince George – one of their machines needed to be serviced as soon as possible. An hour later, I was at the Vancouver Airport, waiting for my flight. I was prepared for such emergencies, having a book along to pass the time. In a corner of the waiting room, I sat down and started to read, or so I thought. At first I didn’t pay attention to the people around me. If I had, I knew it would be impossible to continue reading, as I love to engage people in conversation. Just then, I felt someone looking at me, a long look that signalled a need to talk. It was a man sitting across from me. He looked weary, as if he’d travelled a great distance. On his lap was an old metal box held together with

Animal awareness keys kids’ contest Both Langley zoos are gateways for students to an art contest inspired by Robert Bateman’s work. by Matthew Claxton

Standing beside Alpine Insurance’s Bob Sharif, Canadian Olympic snowboarder Michael Lambert held up two World Cup medals he captured this past season.

Earth Day served as a jumping off point for a contest aimed at getting kids from across Canada interested in nature and the environment. The Robert Bateman Get to Know Contest began with official launches at both the Mountain View Conservation and Breeding Centre, and the Greater Vancouver Zoo. To enter, students can create artworks in any medium, ranging from painting to sculpture, photography to writing. Prizes vary, and include cash, digital cameras, art supplies, and publication in next year’s contest calendar. Because artwork often involves wild animals, Langley’s two zoos have often hosted high school students on the day of the contest kickoff. Students can get a look at some of the wildlife in the controlled confines of a zoo. Students from Robert Bateman Secondary in Abbotsford visited Mountain View. This year’s contest theme is “Connect. Create. Celebrate.” Contest entries must be finished and submitted by May 28.

Alpine helps fund Olympic dream by Troy Landreville

An injury he suffered two years ago nearly dashed Canadian snowboarder Michael Lambert’s dreams of competing at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games. “In the spring of 2008 following my injury, I was no longer considered worthy of funding by the Canadian Snowboard Federation,” Lambert related. “I found myself in a position where I might have to let go of my dream because of financial reasons, and it was the worst

Local musicians can audition this Saturday in a contest to find Canada’s best drummer. The Roland V-Drums Canada contest is underway and the Langley auditions are at Tom Lee Music. The national drum solo competition comes with a top prize of a high-end drum kit worth more than $9,000 and an opportunity to perform at the Montreal Drum Festival in October. Auditions will be videotaped and critiqued by a panel of expert judges who will pick one eastern finalist and another from the west. Winners will then go, all expenses paid, to Montreal for the finals. Limited audition slots are available so drummers must call 604-532-8303 to book a time. More details are at

Speakers have had their fill

ICBC personal injury claim? Get help without the commute.

Rural residents steamed about soil filling packed Township council for the second week in a row. by Matthew Claxton

Meet Sharene D. Orstad of Drysdale Bacon McStravick's Langley office. Sharene has been a member of the DBM team for over a decade and has built her career on protecting the rights of personal injury victims.

From new projects to those going back several years, issues of fill were dumped on Langley Township council on Monday night. While the meeting ended with the Township promising to meet with its lawyers to discuss remedies, the anger of residents is unlikely to abate until dump trucks stop rumbling down rural roads. Residents packed the council chamber to show support for those who are fighting current or proposed plans to dump thousands of truckloads of dirt.

At the negotiating table or in the courtroom, she has the litigation experience necessary to present your case in a manner that ICBC adjusters and lawyers will respect and understand. 604.534.2131

Sharene Orstad Associate

If you need help with a personal injury claim and you don't want to leave your community to get it, call Sharene Orstad, a Langley lawyer behind the DBM button.

The recent spate of interest has been sparked by a massive 100,000 truckload fill site proposed for 264th Street, on the hills above Glen Valley. Michelle Nicholls, a South Aldergrove resident who fought off a gravel extraction plan in her neighbourhood, said she was adding her voice to those opposed to the Glen Valley plan. The Agricultural Land Commission, which will have the final say on the project, needs to be prodded into doing its duty and carefully examining such plans, Nicholls said. “It’s only when the neighbours get involved that they take a closer look,” Nicholls said. Next up was Sue Leyland, who lives next to a fill site in the 1800 block of 232nd Street that has been filled since 2002.

She said the owner has a permit, but has violated its terms repeatedly, and has filled the site to a depth four times what was allowed. She said numerous complaints to the Land Commission and the Township have resulted in little action, and part of her land has now been reclassified as seasonal wetland because of changes to local drainage. She demanded to know why the Township wasn’t forcing the owner of the property to remove the extra dirt, pointing to the Township’s own bylaw. It says, “Any soil deposited without a permit shall be removed from the land by the owner of the land or their agent at their cost.” Township administrator Mark Bakken confirmed that the fill permit for the site is still active. Margaret Ormston drew attention to another old fill site on 16th Avenue. “This is a notorious but classic landfill site,” Ormston said. She brought photos showing a sign on the property, announcing it would be “restored,” but said the site remains a barren eyesore to this day.

he Chief Sepass Theatre will be filled with water on May 8, but don’t call a plumber. Instead, the Langley Camera Club is inviting people to take a dip in a pool of extraordinary images, all based on a water theme. Created by the local club, the Fraser Valley Invitational is a showcase of some of the best photography from the Lower Mainland, and is open to the public. “Serious photographers from the North Shore to Chilliwack meet once each year to enjoy amazing imagery, connect with each other and compete for the prize of first place,” explained club president Dennis Ducklow. The show opens with entertainment, also based on a water theme. “This year, the event opens with two dancers who will perform a dance on the theme of water, created especially for us,” he added. Then, a slide show of images will be presented by members of the Langley Club. After that, the competition begins. Each image is presented on a screen (all are digital)

and will be judged by a panel of three judges. After the 150 images are presented and judged, all are invited to enjoy food, friendship, and viewing of prints by members of the host club. Visitors are welcome to vote on their favourite image, he noted. They will have their work cut out for them. The FVI features 15 area photo clubs from as far away as Chilliwack, and involves 300 photographers. “It’s a high energy evening, jam packed with excitement,” he noted. First, second and third place will be decided, and the winners receive plaques and ribbons, and bragging rights. Another high point of the evening is finding out what the Langley Camera Club has decided for next year. “One of the last things we will do on May 8 is announce the theme for next year’s FVI,” Ducklow said. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. That ticket gets the bearer in on draws for prizes such as a flightseeing tour of the Fraser Valley, a colour printer, cameras, photo bags and more.

Students at Douglas Park Community School got a lesson in fire safety for the home recently, including discussions on the importance of smoke detectors, from Langley City Fire and Rescue. New home smoke detector rules were recently announced.

Fire safety

Smoke must be detected in older homes homes, too Homes built before March 1979 must now adhere to provincial fire code that requires smoke detectors. by Heather Colpitts Langley City Fire Rescue is welcoming changes to provincial law that require all homes built before 1979 to have smoke

alarms built in them. The BC Fire and Building Code has been changed to make the devices mandatory, and they must be installed by May 1 of this year. The local fire department expects the new law, brought in by the B.C. Office of the Fire Commissioner, will increase safety and reduce the damage caused by fires in older residential buildings. continued on page A26…

Interlocking concrete blocks make constructing a retaining wall easy to do. You can make planters in the middle of your lawn, terraced walls against your house, or build a large retaining wall on a slope.


Whether you want to build a KOI POND or a WATER GARDEN, or you just like listening to the sound of a waterfall, we can help you out with both the know how and the materials.

Pond Supplies

We carry ALL the supplies necessary for the needs of the Koi Pond and the water gardener. All of our pond supplies such as plants, koi fish, pumps, liners, and filtration systems and more are available at very affordable prices.


Paver stones are not only attractive, but they are virtually indestructible and low maintenance. The individual nature of the stones allows you to alter or add to your design at any time without any disruption, giving you unparalleled freedom.

Organic Soil

Why settle for dirt? Get weed free organic soil and mulches.

Bark Mulch and Nuggets

Organic Mulching is one of the best ways to conserve water in your garden.

Rocks and Boulders

Crushed limestone is ideal for creating walkways or parking spaces; limestone packs to a very solid surface. Crushed chips are ideal for use as a base for concrete segmented retaining walls such as Allan Block, Pisa, and Terralite. Lava rock makes an attractive addition to any garden or decorative area.

than cutting one open – is to choose a male eggplant over a female one. Males usually have fewer seeds. Male eggplants are usually more rounded on the lower half of the pear-shape, and have a smoother bottom where the flower base is located. Female eggplants have a more slender pear-shape, and you can feel that the bottom flower base is indented. In any case, there are other ways to remove some of the bitter flavour. Simply salt slices of the eggplant and let drain for one or two hours. Although effective for removing bitterness, salt also removes a lot of the water content, so this step may work better with some recipes more than others. There are many great dishes you can prepare with eggplant. They can be halved, stuffed, grilled, and baked. Stew them with tomatoes and other vegetables to make a “ratatouille,” or use slices to replace the pasta for a lower-carbohydrate lasagna. Or try making Greek moussaka – a delicious casserole made with eggplant, ground lamb, and cream sauce.

hile shopping amongst all the wonderful produce our stores have to offer, how many of you pass up the opportunity to put a couple of eggplants in your basket? This wonderful fruit, more often than not, stays in the produce bin rather than making it to one’s family dinner table, as it seems there are countless people who do not know enough about them. Eggplant is technically a fruit, not a vegetable. Fruit is usually the product of a plant or tree, and contains seeds or a pit, while vegetables are the stalks, roots, or leaves of the plants themselves. Apples are obviously fruit. They are a product of a plant and have seeds. Broccoli is a vegetable, as it is the stalk of a plant. Oranges, peaches, grapefruit, lemons, grapes, etc. are all fruit. Onions, carrots, asparagus, lettuce, etc. are all vegetables. Consumers most commonly differentiate fruits from vegetables on the basis of sweetness – but that eliminates such fruits as tomatoes, peppers, avocados, and eggplants. Many types of eggplants are cultivated around the world. Most common in our markets – and the one I’ll focus on – is the pear-shaped deep purple species, appropriately named the “common eggplant.” Eggplants have a spongy flesh with a mild, sometimes bitter flavour. Many prefer to peel eggplants, but the skin is completely edible. When choosing one at the produce counter, make sure the skin is unblemished and is uniform in colour and shape. The small, edible seeds inside the eggplants cause most of the bitterness, so select one that has fewer seeds. The best way – other

Development to quadruple lot density

Langley City council is divided over how much to give a hoot to wildlife living around Grade Crescent and 204th Street. Council heard a proposal to turn one lot at 20436 Grade Cres. into four. The area is zoned RS2 Estate Residential, so lots can be no smaller than 10,000 square feet. But many of the lots along Grade are much larger, and home to various animals such as owls and eagles, herons, and raccoons. In public hearing on the proposed changes, neighbours expressed concern that quadrupling the lot density

would harm the area’s character. “We’re not against development,” Ron Boram said. But he asked the City to “take another look at it. Once it’s gone, it’s gone.” Properties with environmentally sensitive spots will have restrictive covenants, noted economic development director Gerald Minchuk. A senior who owns the property next to 20436 has also looked into subdividing his lot. Councillors were divided. “Who am I to say to an existing land owner that they can’t be developing to the potential of the lots?” commented Coun. Dave Hall. Coun. Jack Arnold said he’s seen developments that went through,

and wildlife has returned. He added that many older property owners rely on the sale of their lands. “This is their nest egg,” he said. Coun. Rudy Storteboom said he felt the developer and arborist demonstrated environmental sensitivity. “With all due respect to the environment,” he added, “people have to have a place to live.” Coun. Rosemary Wallace wanted to save old growth forest there, butCoun. Teri James noted that Langley City’s four square miles, doesn’t have a lot of developable land. Coun. Gayle Martin voted against the proposal, but it was passed by a majority of council.

Forum focused on protecting Langley farmland

Environmentalists, farmers, and politicians talked farmland. by Matthew Claxton

Developers and an unreliable Agricultural Land Commission are chipping away at farmland in Langley and around the region, speakers said at a forum on the ALR. The Thursday forum was organized by the Salmon River Enhancement Society, prompted by the number of times ALR issues kept coming up, said society president Doug McFee. There are seven active applications to exclude land from the ALR in Langley, McFee noted, including properties near Trinity Western University, on the Salmon River Uplands, and by the Gloucester industrial park. Several applications have received the thumbs up from Langley Township council, and the Township is even a landowner involved in one, an expansion of TWU’s campus. Other farms, including the former Blair farm on 216th Street and 56th Avenue, are lying fallow, having been purchased by speculators who have no interest in working the land. Speakers at the forum talked about the threats to farmland, and about different ways to look at local agriculture. “The potential of the land to provide food will always exist, until you put something on it,” said David Davis, a fourth-generation dairy farmer from Milner. Davis’s family was a strong opponents of the removal of ALR land for the Mufford-Glover over-

Township blamed

pass, and their farm is close to the TWU exclusion application. The only way to preserve farming is to preserve farmland, Davis said. That will ensure the security of the local food supply. “At one time I had faith in the Agricultural Land Commission, as most farmers did, but that is no longer the case,” he said. Harold Steves, a Richmond farmer and

municipal councillor who crafted the ALR while a provincial cabinet minister in the 1970s, talked about how farmers can quickly get pushed out once land opens up for development. In 1959, the land his family farmed in Richmond was rezoned residential. Farmers there protested, but by the 1960s, some had started to sell. Within a decade, every farm but the Steves

land had become part of a subdivision. Steves said despite the passage of 40 years, little has changed. “The issues we were debating 40 years ago are all back,” he said. The relative cost of farmland versus industrial, commercial or residential land is driving speculators to buy up working farms, Steves and Davis said. Farmland goes for about $100,000 an acre, while

developable land goes for $1 million an acre. Steves also pointed to illegal dumping on farms, a problem similar to the issue many Langley residents have raised about fill sites. Simply driving around Richmond, Steves has twice caught truckers illegally dumping fill on agricultural land. Heather Pritchard, a Langley farmer and execu-

tive director of Farm Folk City Folk, tried to look on the positive side. A new crop of young people are becoming farmers, farmers markets and local foods movements are helping local agriculture, and more land is being put in trust, she said. Questions centred on how people can protect farmland. “It’s difficult,” Steves said.

Ormston put the blame for Langley’s numerous problems with fill sites squarely on the Township. “In closing, right to farm does not translate to right to wreck,” Ormston said. Nina Robinson spoke about a plan to put 15,000 truckloads of fill near her home in the 400 block of 256th Street for an organic grape farm. “We can’t just pack up and go on vacation for two years,” she said. Her husband is battling lung cancer, and her worries, among other things, include the diesel exhaust of the many trucks.

Canada-wide campaign

Officers stress railway safety

Careless driving while approaching tracks was brought into focus by Canadian Pacific Police Service officers.

Emmaus Christian Fellowship Sunday Worship 10:30 am Meeting at James Kennedy Elementary School, 9060 212th Street Pastor Janelle Koolhaas 604-888-2153


“Beating the train” can more often than not be a fatal decision for motorists. Speeding and careless behaviour near railway crossings was the focus of a Canadian Pacific Police Service awareness campaign Thursday morning at the railway tracks on 200th Street, just north of Logan Avenue. Wearing fluorescent yellow jackets, Sgt. Steve Gregoris and Const. Jason Drader made their presence known at the crossing as part of Railway Safety Week in Canada, which runs from April 26 to May 2. Drader pointed a radar gun at passing cars, reminding motorists to slow down. Traffic enforcement blitzes are being conducted at railway crossings, and there are anti-trespassing patrols around rail operations in Langley, Vancouver, New “Building public Westminster, Pitt Meadows, Coquitlam, Mission, Maple awareness Ridge, Burnaby, and is our top Abbotsford. priority.” In 2009, Transport Canada reported 186 crossing colliSgt. Steve Gregoris sions across Canada, 19 fatalities and 21 serious injuries. There were also 70 trespass incidents, including 52 fatalities and 15 serious injuries. These numbers do not include the many near collisions that take place every year. For January and February of 2010, Transport Canada has already reported 53 crossing accidents, four serious injuries, and 11 fatalities at railway crossings nationwide. “Building public awareness is our top priority”, Gregoris said. “Ignoring signage at railway crossings and trespassing on railway property creates significant unnecessary personal risks that often lead to personal injury or death.” People who trespass on railway property or fail to yield the right-of-way to an approaching train at a crossing are subject to being charged with a number of offences under the Rail Safety Act. People can report offences occurring at crossings and on railway property by contacting the Canadian Pacific Police Service at: 1800-716-9132 or by calling their local police.

Bennett rides to top 10 result Former Langley resident and Canadian Olympian Hawley Bennett and her mare Gin’N Juice continue to impress on the international three-day eventing circuit. Eventing includes three equine tests: dressage, cross-country, and stadium show jumping. Each test ridden by the riderand-horse team is scored individually, then added together for final results. At the Rolex North American Challenge last

week in Lexington, Ky., Bennett, aboard nine-yearold Gin’N Juice (owned by Hawley and Linda Paine of Temecula, Calif.), placed ninth overall. This is a noteworthy finish for their first time competing at Rolex against many of top riders in world. After a good dressage score of 53.8, the pair had a double clear crosscountry round with zero faults and time penalties (one of only 10 horses to do this), and finished with

one rail and four faults in the stadium portion of the competition for a final score of 57.8. Bennett was thrilled with her little mare (only 15.3 hands), and is hoping to be selected to represent Canada at the World Equestrian Games in September. Bennett and her horse Livingstone competed as part of the Canadian Equestrian Team at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens.

Jackpot! Former B.C. grappler scores big in Vegas For Vance Nevada, the philosophy “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” does not apply. Profiled in the Nov. 20, 2009 Langley Advance [Wrestler pins down history] Nevada was a big winner last week in Las Vegas, taking home an award for his accomplishments as a pro wrestling historian. Nevada, formerly of Langley and now residing in Red Deer, Alta., was an honouree among 13 past and present wrestling personalities in a field which included awards issued to World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Hall of Famers Ted DiBiase and Jim Ross, as

well as Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) legend Dan Severn. The award ceremonies, held over two evenings, were hosted by the Cauliflower Alley Club, a benevolent association comprised primarily of current and former wrestlers. The James C. Melby Historian award was introduced in 2008 to recognize the efforts of journalists, writers and researchers who have contributed to the preservation of professional wrestling history. James Melby was an acclaimed wrestling writer and publisher from Minnesota whose work spanned more than four decades. The Melby award

Vance Nevada shook hands with WWE legend “Stone Cold” Steve Austin during last week’s awards ceremony. has been given to only three recipients including Nevada, whose win marks the first by both a Canadian and an active wrestler in this category. Nevada was selected in part for his work in writing and promoting his book Wrestling in the Canadian West, but also

for his efforts to preserve the individual legacies of professional wrestlers dating back to the turn of the century. To date, Nevada has compiled comprehensive ring records for more than 230 wrestlers, including some chronologies which include more than 4,000 matches wrestled by a single wrestler. In addition, he has recently donated more than 1,400 pages of original research to the Provincial Archives of Alberta to ensure that professional wrestling in western Canada is available as part of the public record. Among the 450 in attendance for the awards in Las Vegas were iconic wrestlers “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Terry Funk, Nick Bockwinkel, and Harley Race.

Junior A lacrosse

Lakers sink Jr. Thunder to spoil squad’s home opener

A high scoring opening period saw the teams tally eight goals between them.

The Langley Jr. Thunder’s home debut featured some outstanding performances by their young leaders on offence. And spiffy new uniforms. The more versatile Burnaby Lakers, however, posted a 9-5 victory in B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League action Tuesday at the Langley Events Centre. The game was fast and the checking – for the most part – was tight and aggressive. During a penalty-filled opening period, Burnaby scored first on a powerplay just after the three minute mark, and opened a two-goal gap a couple of minutes later. Then, Langley’s rookie offensive unit began to respond. At the 5:32 mark, Nick Stone took a pass from Reegan Comeault, stepped to the crease with a dramatic fake on a Burnaby defender, and buried a low drive into the Lakers’ net for the Jr. Thunder’s first goal. Colton Porter was awarded an assist on the play. Five minutes later, Porter picked up the first of his two back-to-back goals in the first period. Kevin Lemond assisted on both of Porter’s goals. Stone and Comeault earned assists as well.

Burnaby had the early edge in play, however, carrying a 5-3 into the second period. The second period started with the Thunder successfully killing off a five-minute penalty given

to Colten Hayes from a melee at the Burnaby goal that ended the first period. Offensively, the baton went back to Langley’s Reegan Comeault in the middle frame as he scored unassisted at 6:51 and

added another at the 10:50 mark. The Jr. Thunder defence gave up four more goals the rest of the game. The Lakers outscored the Jr. Thunder 2-0 in the final period of play.

Shots on goal were virtually even. Langley’s Keenan Lambright faced 42 shots, while Burnaby netminder Brodie MacDonald saw 43 – although many of the Lakers’ shots often came

from successful penetration to the crease. Next up for the Jr. Thunder are the New Westminster Jr. Salmonbellies Tuesday at Queens Park Arena.

Soil dumping


Township not enforcing its own rules Writer sticks to guns Several Langley neighbourhoods are making their way through provincial legislation to understand how it affects soil removal and deposit issues in the Township, because it is abundantly clear the Township does

not fulfill its obligations to enforce its own permit conditions. Legal means of control exist if the Township chooses to exercise them. But in too many instances, the Township has chosen not to. We view with alarm any “approv-


Prevention worth far more than cure Dear Editor,

“Invisible green infrastructure” is very nice way to describe this public value [Invisible costs of green world, April 20 Opinion, Langley Advance]. Lucky us that we have the opportunity to protect it, because the cost to rehabilitate it afterwards is far, far greater. Ask those who are trying

to rehabilitate their watersheds to reduce flooding, prevent slope failures, provide drinking water (quality and quantity), reduce invasive species, and so on. This public value is intrinsic to our sense of self and our environment. Dianne Ramage, Coquitlam

Keep trucks west of 208th St. Dear Editor,

We do not need to be like our politicians and solve problems by making things other people’s problems. I agree that sending truck traffic along 208th Street on either side of the freeway is crazy [Trucks pose danger near overpass, April 23 Letters, Langley Advance]. This is a residential area and no place for commercial trucks – but the writer obviously does not have children or grandchildren attending either of the two elementary schools that are right on 216th Street. I also agree that the traffic on the

new bridge does not justify sending commercial trucks down either of those streets, or wasting our tax dollars on building another overpass/freeway on-ramp. Use 200th and 192nd Streets, as they are both in non-residential areas. They could even modify the 192nd overpass with an east-bound on-ramp, and keep the trucks where they belong. Keep all of our kids safe and our tax dollars where they really belong: in our pockets.

als,” because we know the chances are high that the terms of permits will not be met, putting our properties, streams, neighbourhoods, and environment at risk. Surrey and Abbotsford don’t seem to have these fill site issues. Could it be that they enforce their bylaws? Life would be a lot easier for all if Langley Township resolved to monitor all approved fill sites, and to maximum penalties on violators.

Defamation feared Dear Editor,

Langley Teachers’ Association President Susan Fonseca suggests the district is “muzzling” teachers [District burns LTA barbecue plans, April 27, Langley Advance]. LTA flyers promoting a “Forensic Audit Pavilion Barbeque” were removed from school bulletin boards because they contained statements which the district believes may be defamatory, and could be held liable if it did not take every step to remove the material. The LTA has grieved the decision to have the flyers removed, and the district will address the matter through the grievance procedure. Additional steps taken were within reasonable policy guidelines.

Dear Editor,

It seems Mr. Clayton Randle [Writer’s anger misguided, April 27 Letters, Langley Advance] found my words [Complainer could seek office, April 16 Letters] to Mr. Standcumbe [Truck route intolerable, April 6 Letters] to be rude. I was not intending to be rude, but used the letter he wrote as a platform. People rarely want to be involved in anything unless it affects them directly. Mr. Randle’s letter indicated that point perfectly. Mr. Randle states that he works full time, as does his wife, and by the time he gets home and eats dinner with his children, they are finished. This never justifies being apathetic about the world around you. I am also a full-time worker, as is my husband. My two young children participate in activities that require our attention, and we both sit on a minimum of two volunteer committees in our community. I don’t have all the time in the world to go to meetings either but I can read the papers, go to community functions where council members are present, blog on the internet, check out my city hall on a Saturday, etc. Family is very important, I don’t dispute, but always falling back on “no time” is tired. It’s difficult, yes, but we make the time, because we live here. We want this to be a great community to raise our children. As for “not in my backyard,” I was informed of what was being completed in my area in the present and in the near future. As for the distant future, I, too, will have to roll with the punches. And for the points I missed in my letter, I encourage Mr. Randle to still write them in to the editor, or even better, his local city hall. I stand by what I have written.

Susan Hannsen, Langley

Fort Langley resident Kerry Turner brought his 1963 Morris Minor to Sunday’s car show on the grounds of Fort Langley Community Hall. An assortment of British cars (above right) sat side-by-side in front of the hall during the Langley Area Mostly British Motoring Club’s annual show on Sunday. “It’s been a part of my life, all along,” Turner said. The Morris Minor, according to Turner, was the first car from Britain manufactured from an assembly line. “Before that, and still today, cars are built by hand in Britain,” Turner said. Back in its heyday, the Morris Minor was an “everyman’s car,” Turner said. “It was used for country rides and family outings,” he said. These days, the Morris Minor Turner owns is outfitted with a vintage licence plate, which means it is insured in such a way that it can

only be driven to car shows. And while it is rarely driven, the car hasn’t escaped the odd mishap. At last year’s LAMB show in Fort Langley, Turner scraped the front left side of the car against a post. “I was backing out, and there were all kinds of people around, so I wasn’t watching the left front, I was more concerned about people behind me, and I just scraped it,” Turner remembered. “It cost an amazing amount of money to fix it. You wouldn’t believe it.” This year, to avoid any fender benders, Turner arrived at the show very early.

Turner said the car is “pretty much finished” when it comes to any more modifications. “I’ve added a brake booster so it stops,” Turner said. “One of the Morris Minor faults was its braking system wasn’t the greatest, believe me. It had tiny little brake shoes, so the contact surface was really minimal. But it’s improved now.” The Morris Minor is one of two vintage British vehicles in Turner’s possession. His newest project, a 1950 MG TD, will likely be on the road in May, but the paint job will have to wait. continued on page A47…

British steel invaded the grounds of Fort Langley Community Hall Sunday. The Langley Area Mostly British Motoring Club (LAMB) held its annual St. George’s Day car show, with 70 British cars and trucks of all makes and colours parked in front of the 79-year-old hall. One of those vehicles, a ’63 Morris Minor, belongs to Fort Langley resident Kerry Turner. The car is a nod to Turner’s teenaged years – he owned a ’52 convertible Morris Minor in high school. The two-door model he owns today – equipped with an MG Midget motor – was planted in a backyard before being acquired by Turner. Following in his dad’s tire tracks, Turner’s son drove the Morris Minor during his high school days. “Then it went in the garage for 15, 20 years. I decided I was either going to throw it away or rebuild it,” Turner said. “So we rebuilt it.” Turner always had an affinity for British cars. His dad drove an Austin A40.

Hundreds visit Fort for LAMB car show

…continued from page A45 “I ran out of money,” Turner said with a laugh. ••• Sunday’s show was one of LAMBS’ signature events, and is tied to the celebrations of St George, patron saint of England, known for his epic battle with a dragon. Hundreds of visitors perused the collection of vehicles that included a 2010 Lotus Elise, 1952 Bristol

400, Morris Minors, and a few unique entries such as a London taxi, British troop carrier, and 1951 Land Rover. The Langley Museum of Flight put a Sopwith Camel biplane on display. The LAMBS car club gets together at Willowbrook Lanes, meeting on the second Thursday of every month. “It is a group of people who have cars of all different makes,” Turner noted. “It’s not


a high profile, high intensity kind of club. There is a structure to our meetings but most of the time we are talking about cars, problems we are having, looking for such-and-such. A lot of sharing goes on.” Visit

Visitors admired Mike Boyle’s sporty 2010 Lotus Elise during Sunday’s car show in Fort Langley. Troy Landreville/Langley Advance

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Aries March 21 - April 19: Chase money, especially money owed to you, or pursue past dollar sources such as a former job/employer. Pay old bills. Life is easy, mild. But don’t start any new projects before May 11. You might discover, early week, that there is a flaw or major hindrance in something you thought was “in the bag,” especially in romantic, creative or speculation zones. Work with a Gemini, Taurus or Capricorn to overcome that flaw. (Or just accept it.) Communications are affectionate, especially with someone who means a lot to you (enemies can mean a lot, too!). Happiness, Wednesday/Thursday!

Cancer June 21-July 22: A former friend, schoolmate, could pop by, phone. If this occurs Sunday to Tuesday noon, or Friday/Saturday, it could have bigger implications – opportunity, love, travel, etc. Be engaging, welcoming. Your domestic scene has “lightened up” lately, and will stay light until late July. (This also takes the pressure off marriage and other partnerships.) Use this interval to prepare for the resumption of “serious matters” in this arena late July through 2012. Get contracts signed, disagreements settled, etc. Someone out there wants to “rescue” you. If the knight’s white, say yes.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Mysteries, intimate bonding, sex, pregnancy, lifestyle change, commitments and consequences, crime, research, dreams, investments, finances, inheritances and other people’s money – these continue to occupy you, and continue to be subject to delays, mistakes and misunderstandings. Be patient. Reprise the past – e.g., grab a former lover, chase former financial situations, revisit former mysteries. You might be contemplating marriage, or another cultural passage. Wait: January to June 2011 will bring your answer, ring your bell. Security, home Sunday-Tuesday. Romance mid-week.

Taurus April 20-May 20: Your energy and charisma soar, you love life and it loves you! But once every four years your April/May high-energy period will occur while it is unwise to begin new projects – as now. These 1-in-4 year phases must be meant to nudge you into cleaning up your past, or seizing it so you don’t lose something --- or someone – valuable. That might be why old flames, nostalgia, old contacts, and past “ungrabbed” opportunities return, as they are doing now. So use your high energy and magnetism this week, but use it to reprise (or clean up) the past. Joy, Friday/Saturday!

Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Start nothing new before May 11. Reprise the past in career, prestige areas – and protect these from mistakes, supply shortages, missed meetings, etc. A former career role might return. You’re still assertive/aggressive, your face is redder than usual, you want quick results, and you might push people too hard – this from last October to early June 2010 (and Monday/Tuesday!). On the good side, higher learning, foreign countries and lawyers benefit you. Your social life has picked up! Work hard Sunday to Tuesday noon. Be flexible, welcoming mid-week. Mysteries, intimacy late week.

Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Relationships remain your prime focus. Don’t start new ones. Protect ongoing contacts from (your?) neglect. You could deal with a former spouse, business partner or contact, or a former opportunity might return (especially one involving the public, relocation, sex, finances, and/or a social group). You could grow increasingly intimate with a friend or affectionate bond. That’s good. If you learn a secret Sunday/Monday, it’s true. Take care if a relationship conflicts with your career or community status. Slow down, attend to home, family mid-week. Romance, creativity visit Friday/Saturday!

Gemini May 21-June 20: Lie low, rest, make no demands.Cleanup,handleoldobligations,governmentrelated tasks, administrative duties – and be nice. (Bureaucrats do engage in revenge sometimes.) Your speech and writing is a bit aggressive, male, volatile – and unusually friendly – last October to this coming June. Neglected chores will return. So might an old flame, but a quiet or restrictive or burdensome one, perhaps someone you want to protect. (Remember, this is your year for career success, not for shenanigans.) Big money, mysteries and sex favour you Sunday to Tuesday. Mid-week’s mellow.

Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Start nothing new before May 11. An assortment of old friends, former lovers, teachers, schoolmates, even bosses might have started flowing in – most of these won’t last, so be non-committal until you see who “sticks.” A Taurus, Gemini and/or another Virgo figure prominently. Romance, creative or speculative urges, love for happy children – these bless you Sunday to noon Tuesday. The “person” side of this shines bright; the sex/ intimate side meets problems, perhaps due to security factors. Relationships intrigue you Friday/Saturday. For 15 years, marriage/love will fascinate you.

Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The accent remains on work — you have a lot to do, including chores you neglected weeks or months ago. Tackle these. If unemployed, contact former employers, or return to a former field. But DON’T start any brand new work projects, nor buy machinery. All this to May 11. If a co-worker’s driving you crazy, just take a deep breath. Your spouse is affectionate. If you’re unattached, others respond sweetly (but don’t seek anyone brand new before May 11). Money has “significance” or involves important news Sunday-Tuesday. Be domestic, or in nature, Friday/Saturday.

May 2 - 8 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Romance is deep, meaningful, might be of marriage quality. This applies especially if an old flame has wandered back. Take a chance on this. But don’t start a brand new relationship now – it would forever remain an “unfinished symphony.” Same advice applies to creative, speculative, sports and pleasure projects. Work is pleasant, co-workers affectionate. Your energy and charisma soar Sunday to noon Tuesday – much succeeds, but don’t push love toward intimacy too soon, and beware mixing gambling with investments. Money’s important mid-week – be nimble! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Rest, lie low and contemplate people, things, your life Sunday to noon Tuesday. There is much to think over, and a series of valuable insights, especially in the areas of home, security, spirit, government, sex and intimacy, romance and large finances. Your relations with others (or one other) are at a low, and critical point. Don’t expect agreement, but do realize you are probably in the “power seat” of this relationship now. (As opposed to last October/November, when roles were switched.) A “déjà-vu” situation might exist. Your energy and charisma return mid-week. Money, Friday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: You’re busy, but not pressured (much) – enjoy the respite.Your popularity rises Sunday to noon Tuesday – seek friends, be happy, flirt with a casual acquaintance you haven’t seen in awhile, have fun! (That casual friend might be the key to a significant social, even partnership event.) But realize restlessness can interfere with job success. Settle into rest, contemplation and mild withdrawal Tuesday noon through Thursday. True insight, inspiration arrives Thursday. Your energy and charisma surge Friday/Saturday! Attract and do. But don’t start anything new before May 11. • Reading: 416-686-5014

CONSIDER THE FACTS! The average home on today’s market, if priced correctly, will sell in less than 3 weeks! Why pay high commissions?

My commisions are totally negotiable! % If I sell it myself, my commision is only of the selling price! If you, the homeowner, wish to work your own open houses & at the same time you find a buyer, % I do the negotiating and the paperwork, etc., it’s only commission period! (Minimum $500000)
