It drew more athletes than the 2010 Olympics, featured more sports, and brought young people from every corner of the province to Langley for three days. The BC Summer Games were one of the biggest events ever held in Langley. The story of the Summer Games goes back to 2005, when the Township put in its official bid to host the event in either 2008 or 2010. Langley presented a very different face to the sports community back then. There was no Langley Events Centre, nor was the project even on the radar screen. McLeod Athletic Park still didn’t

have its grandstands finished, and the rowing facility in Fort Langley was yet to be upgraded. Yet in April 2005, the province awarded Langley the Games. By early 2010, preparations were in full swing, the number of facilities had greatly increased, and volunteers were being gathered by the hundreds. More than 2,800 volunteers, mostly from the Langleys, signed up for the Games. While the BC Summer Games involve more sports and more athletes than the Winter Olympics, the budgets are not similar. Volunteers were needed for everything from security to meal preparation, from chaperoning athlete dances to driving buses. A series of major venues, including soccer fields, were built or upgraded. The focus of all this preparation was the athletes, said Langley Games president Michael JackStien. “We went out of our way to make it their Games,” he said. A total of 2,461 athletes along with coaches, arrived from six regions around B.C. For some of them, it was a short trip from Surrey, North Vancouver, or even from within Langley. Others arrived from the Peace River region, the North

Coast, Vancouver Island, or the Southern Interior. A giant kick off, with Premier Gordon Campbell in attendance, was held on July 22 at McLeod Athletic Park. Athletes from six geographical zones streamed in, wearing vibrant colours that would distinguish their teams. The athletes were up to 18 years old, with an average age of 14. While some were already accomplished specialists, preparing for the Olympics in a few years, others were enthusiastic newcomers. Training and teaching would form a large part of the weekend’s events, with coaches offering tips. The athletes threw themselves into their sports, whether kayaking, cycling, lacrosse, inline

hockey, beach volleyball, or track and field. The Games even boasted sailing events held in Surrey and water skiing in Abbotsford. Langley athletes took top honours for the Fraser Valley region in a number of spots. Georgia Ellenwood stood out in track and field, taking gold in high jump, long jump, 200 metre hurdles, and the 4 x 400m relay. Jacob Houlton took gold in high jump, the 300m dash, the 4 x 400m relay, and a silver in shotput. Janae Enns took home a gold in beach volleyball, James Hellner took a gold in the 1500m race walk, and diver Kailee Lingham took good in one- and three-metre events.

Three Time Award Winner “Top Hampton in Canada” 604.530.6545

Walnut Grove firefighters continue their annual tradition of helping others during the holidays.

The route was lined with smiling faces, as people waved and called Merry Christmas, and enjoyed the music and sweets handed out by Santa’s firefighter helpers.

Santa came down from the North Pole for a special trip on Dec. 19, to help the firefighters of Walnut Grove get their community into the Christmas spirit. The firefighters of Township fire hall 8 in Walnut Grove and their families paraded through the streets with carols blasting for their annual food and toy drive. Included in the procession were horse-drawn wagons loaned by Aldor Acres.

At the end of the night, it was estimated that about 350 pounds of food and toys, and $150 in cash donations were gathered for the Langley Food Bank.

After a procession of wagons, fire vehicles, and people wound their way through Walnut Grove, they had a tidy haul for the Langley Food Bank.

On one of the biggest nights of the year for parties, quite a few Langley RCMP officers will be reporting for work. The local Mounties will have a strong presence on the roads of Langley, watching for drunk or drug impaired drivers. “There will be an increase in roadblocks,” said Sgt. Ravi Pawar. Both regular traffic section officers and general duty cops will be setting up checks at a variety of locations. There have been hopeful signs already this season that many people are getting the message not to drink and drive. Pawar said officers are seeing plenty of Operation Red Nose volunteers going through roadblocks, along with other driving services. “Which is good to see,” Pawar said. It might be partly because of the tougher new penalties for drunk drivers pulled over at the roadside, said Pawar. He noted there are only a handful of big, organized New Year’s events in Langley this year compared to previous years. However, police will learn about a number of house parties, as they always do, when the noise complaints from neighbours start coming in around midnight, Pawar said.


Pay up

Jan. 1 brings with it a new schedule of Langley City fees, most undergoing modest increases. City council, at its Dec. 20 meeting, gave final approval to a series of fee changes ranging from business licences and building permits to what it costs to rent a park and have a fire inspection. • More online

Senior killed crossing busy street

Police are looking for more witnesses to help them solve the death in traffic of a senior citizen. by Matthew Claxton

A 67-year-old man was killed trying to cross 200th Street at 64th Avenue Tuesday evening, Langley RCMP say. The pedestrian, wearing dark clothing, was trying to cross 200th at about 6 p.m., well after dark, said Sgt. Ravinder Pawar.

He may have entered the crosswalk late, and only made it halfway across to the centre median by the time the light changed. According to what police have determined so far, the man may have paused at the median and let a few northbound vehicles pass before trying to cross the rest of the road. He was hit by a Dodge truck in the crosswalk. “The truck was going straight through, and did have a green light,” Pawar said. An Air Ambulance landed nearby and flew the man to Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster.

He died en route, while in the air. Alcohol has been ruled out as a factor, but the victim’s dark clothing may have made him harder to see. Police are still investigating the exact cause of the fatal accident. “We’re looking for any more witnesses that might be in the area,” Pawar said. Anyone with information can call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200. Pawar warned pedestrians and drivers that with the short, dark days, it can be much harder to see people at crosswalks. Wearing bright or reflective clothing helps drivers spot people on foot.

While the view, looking north from the Langley Events Centre, of fog-shrouded and snow-capped mountains makes for a pretty picture, it’s also an indication that winter, and along with it sub-zero temperatures, has settled over the area.


Cold snap prompts alert Langley’s homeless are being offered shelter from the cold as sub-zero temperatures hit the region. by Matthew Claxton

For most people, a heavy frost means a crisp morning walk or a bit of time scraping ice off a car’s windshield. For those living outside, it can be fatal. Another Extreme Weather Alert has been announced in Langley, and the emergency cold and wet weather shelter has been opened at the Gateway of Hope. The Salvation Army-run shelter provides extra spaces for anyone who needs to get out of the cold overnight during

the worst weather of the year. Usually, between half a dozen and 20 people might turn up on a particularly cold, rainy, or snowy night. The emergency shelter will be open from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., and shelter organizers have already announced it will run tonight and through to Jan. 2. The weather forecast is calling for subzero temperatures every night, with the mercury barely rising above zero until early next week. Then, cold clear weather is expected to be replaced by milder temperatures and rain. The Salvation Army Gateway of Hope is located at 5787 Langley Bypass. Langley RCMP officers will transport homeless people to the shelter if necessary.

A brave credit union customer chased down a bank robber and took back a bundle of stolen money in Langley Wednesday morning. The thief walked in and demanded cash from a teller at Coast Capital Savings branch in the 6200 block of 200th Street at 10:30 a.m. The teller, who had a customer making a deposit at her till, handed over a stack of bills, and the thief ran out the door. But the customer gave chase. He caught up to the suspect a short distance away, and there was a brief struggle from which the customer emerged the winner, and took the cash back to the credit union. Police, who arrived at the bank in response to the robbery, then used a tracking dog to find the suspect and arrested him about an hour after the theft. “Nobody was hurt,” said Langley RCMP Sgt. Ravi Pawar. “It could easily have gone the other way.” Although the customer managed to get the cash back without being hurt, it’s not a good idea to confront robbery suspects, Pawar said. No amount of money is worth the possible harm, he said. Police are still investigating the case, and the suspected robber is in custody. Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call the RCMP at 604-532-3200. To remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Making news

Thanks to the huge success of the BC Summer Games in July – and the thousands of volunteers who made that success happen – picking Langley’s Newsmaker of the Year for 2010 was about as easy as it has ever been since we introduced the annual feature in the 1990s. Without the Summer Games, it would have been tremendously difficult. There would have been a large number of significant stories from which to choose. Langley’s board of education continued its soap-opera tale of exploding deficits, as its almost unimaginable $13.5-million shortfall led to a report and stern recommendations from B.C.’s Auditor General. And no sooner was the AG’s report released, but another story exploded out of the board: chair Joan Bech resigned, leaving a sharply divided school board split worse, and practically paralyzed while the district awaits a Jan. 15 by-election to refill her vacated board seat. And speaking of division: it is hard to imagine a greater division between a mayor and his council than the rancorous gap that grew in Langley Township’s local government through 2010. Mayor Rick Green was at loggerheads with one or more of his councillors (or all of them) throughout the year, spawning further stories – the Mufford overpass, the $8million Langley Events Centre settlement, council’s censure of the mayor – any of which might have been contenders for the Newsmaker of the Year title. Then there was the Butorac murder conviction, the death of a local soldier in Afghanistan, and the death of a giraffe resulting in a major policy change at the Mountain View Conservation Centre. And MLA Rich Coleman’s eleventh hour jump out of the BC Liberal leadership race took nearly everyone – including his own supporters – by surprise. If he had run and won, next year’s title would likely have been another easy pick. As it is, with so much “hard” news in 2010, the BC Summer Games made this year’s Newsmaker a happy choice. – B.G.

2011: I predict stuff will happen Painful truth

See, that whole we’re-definitely-going-to-bewrong thing keeps niggling at the back of my mind. We now have a long, easily accessible history of failed predictions to draw upon.

Mufford overpass

Sensible alternative offered

Dear Editor, I offer a tip of my hat and a bow to Dean Holcombe [Better solution cheaper, Dec. 28 Letters, Langley Advance]. He has taken the initiative to propose workable solutions to several wasteful and thoughtless Township acts of destruction. We are even given guidelines in a few brief words. How sensible, how practical, how prudent! I have taken care not to refer to a department with a mandate of planning. It might have been expected of such a body to provide a solution. It is not fair to expect

more, after watching the planned disaster of Willoughby as a future ghetto. It could have been a Morgan Creek, but when community mailboxes are sited in no-stopping zones, I have little confidence in most local government. Hopefully, however, we will hear more from and about Mr. Holcombe. Mr. de Raadt and Councillor Kim Richter are welcome to sit at the same table. Mayor Rick Green may also be invited. We do not always agree, but at least these people have demonstrated ability to think. K. Clarke, Langley

Dear Editor, I was disappointed that the front page of your Dec. 24, edition focused on a fairy tale [’Twas the night before Christmas…, Langley Advance], rather than directing the attention of your readers to the birth of Christ, the true reason for all Christmas celebration. Let’s keep the “Christ” in Christmas; hopefully your newspaper will keep this in mind for Christmas 2011. Bernice Vandenbos, Langley

cially during times when we may doubt the reason we celebrate Christmas at all, or the birth of God’s son, or how his spirit works through us, or why he died for us – but there can be no doubt about the wonderful blessings that he sent to us. Although we may all celebrate it in so many different ways, nobody should have to do that alone. It doesn’t matter how we got this way; existential loneliness is as deadly as any disease, but some of the simplest things we do can be the best or only cure. No wonder they call British Columbia the greatest place on earth. Now I’ve got to try to get rid of these extra five or six pounds I’ve gained. Either that or I am going to have to find a bigger belt. Danny A. Halmo, Langley [Note: A fuller version of this letter is online at www.]

While the young athletes have packed up and gone home, he believes the repercussions of the Games will be felt for years. “I think there are quite a few things that will carry on,” said Jackstien. It has boosted the booking of sporting events and tournaments into Langley, and brought an estimated $1.5 to $2 million of business to the community. The Games legacy funds, to be divided between the province and Langley, are still being counted. Of the money that stays locally, 70 per cent will fund sports and 30 per cent cultural events. Legacy fund money is still coming in, Jackstien said.

Live performing

A career that eventually led to music for charity 2010

Entertainer of the Year

by Roxanne Hooper


A professional musician

So who is he? Well, he’s a man who, in his late teens, ventured into a much-coveted career as a professional musician. He first squeezed it in around a job as a programmer and announcer at a Lethbridge, and later Vernon radio station. Then, as he tells

it, he dumped the steady pay cheque to get into music full-time. And that’s what he did, playing as a solo artist, band member, and studio musician in every contemporary genre of music for the better part of the next quarter century. He shared two songwriting awards from CFMI radio station in the early 1980s, and at one point later that same decade partnered with Canadian country great (and longtime friend) Ron Irving and a band known as Bootleg, again sharing a nomination for Canadian music producer of the year for a top country single they’d created. But Bryan didn’t go to the awards ceremony in Toronto that year, again his “stupidity” making him miss out on another “incredible career opportunity.” Instead, what he did a short time later was bow out of the music industry completely, seeking an entirely new path for his life. After all, what else came with a blossoming music career for this troubled young man – who was trying to shake an abusive upbringing – was a “severe addiction” to alcohol and drugs. “I decided to make a clean break from the music industry and the drugs. Once I decided to leave the music business behind, that was the very best decision,” Bryan said. “For me, I really had to dump that to have a life.”



And that too, he did.

No longer getting paid for music

Consequently, Bryan has enjoyed two main careers so far in his life time. Of course, the first 25 years was spent as a professional musician. But the past 17 years was as an aboriginal support worker for the Langley school district, a job he retired from this past September. With retirement, apparently comes a lot of spare time. But Bryan is wondering when that will arrive. In fact, most of his free time nowadays has evaporated as he and his wife Linda prepare to officially adopt four children who have been living with them for the past four years. Now, he’s grateful to grab 20-40 minutes a day – if that – to work on his music writing, and he claims the time limitations have actually helped him focus and grow as an artist. “I used to have so much time and didn’t accomplish much,” Bryan added. “Now, I sandwich it in between making sandwiches, literally. And, I’m working harder now and coming up with better stuff than I think I ever have... life has never been so exciting.”

The face behind the fundraiser

But in honesty, it’s not merely Bryan’s music efforts – past or present – that earned him special recognition this year from the Langley Advance. In fact, it’s that combined with all he does to help up-and-coming artists – and also feed the hungry in his community – that garnered the honour. Bryan is the man behind Langley’s Food Bank Tuesdays, a monthly event that not only profiles young local talent, but helps the Langley Food Bank. “It’s a nice night,” said Bryan, who came up with the idea after holding a few music fundraisers in his basement after friends lost their home to fire. The question came to him: why not do this on a regular basis? And since Langley Food Bank was one of his charities of choice, it wasn’t much of a stretch for Bryan to devise the idea for Food Bank Tuesdays. Calling in a few friends, who coincidentally happen to be professional musicians, he developed the local music night. • More online at, click on “Entertainment’

ryan Eli Nelson, better known in the music industry as Eli Bryan, has been crowned Langley’s Entertainer of the Year. For the 63-year-old Langley City resident, this news will come as quite a surprise – especially since he’s never classified himself as a strong entertainer. “I’m not a born performer,” he told the Langley Advance, noting that music writing and behind the scenes studio work seemed more his bailiwick. Looking back on his lifelong passion for music, Bryan vividly remembers writing songs in his head at age 11, during regular 5 a.m. excursions to the hockey rink in Edmonton for practices. At the time, he assumed song-writing skills were something everyone possessed. It wasn’t until he began playing guitar at age 14 and jamming with other “creative” sort, that he began to realize his abilities weren’t shared by all. A short time later, he began playing in bands, his biggest career boost coming when he joined forces with a Prairie

band called Willie and the Walkers, and had a few of his songs recorded by wellknown artists of the era. “That was sort of as close as I got to the brass ring at the time,” Bryan said. “But, I was too stupid and naive to realize what an accomplishment that was,” added Bryan, who admitted to repetitive “stupid” episodes throughout his adult life, in which he was completely oblivious to opportunities laid out before him. “I have no regrets, though,” Bryan added. “I needed to go through that to become the person I am today.”

Trees & shrubs

Bark adds beauty to winter W hen winter flowers are hiding under snow or flattened by winter storms, the fanciful shapes of tree bark, twisted branches, and coloured stems continue to beautify gardens. The white bark and black pencil lines of silver birches look striking in winter. The weeping silver birches fit best into small spaces. Many hawthorns have fissured bark that shows up well in winter. Some kinds hold their black or scarlet berries till frosts sweeten them for birds. Profuse clusters of cup-shaped pink or white flowers in spring add to their appeal. Some maples have spectacular bark, such as Acer davidii (striped maple) which displays green bark with long white lines. Paperbark maple (Acer griseum) has orangebrown bark which peels back to brighter bark underneath. Maples are trees of the woodland edge, and much happier in partial shade than in full, hot sun. Good drainage is essential. Wet soils lead to root ailments. For real brightness in early winter, the red-twig dogwoods (Cornus sanguinea) are spectacular, and easy to find in garden centres. “Midwinter Fire” is one of the better cultivars. Yellow-twig dogwoods, such as the old Cornus stolonifera “Flaviramea” are also beautiful. Both need to be cut back hard at the end of winter, as young twigs show the best colour. Without pruning, many twiggy dogwoods can sucker into tangled thickets three metres tall. Other woody plants with colourful stems include the rich gold of pollarded willow trees, the emphatic green of Kerria shrubs, and the sea-green stems of Leycesteria Formosa (Himalayan Honeysuckle). Coral Bark Maple isn’t at its best if allowed to stretch to its six-metre potential,

because the red brilliance is shown by the young stems, not mature bark. Pruning annually helps to keep bright new stems emerging relatively close to eye level. Cutting back is also an issue when contorted branch trees and shrubs are planted. This is especially true of the Corkscrew Willow (Salix matsudana tortuosa) which has wavy, curving branches that can grow far beyond pruners. The contorted hazel is also best kept to a reachable size. But there’s a catch. Pruning triggers suckers from the rootstock of grafted contorted hazels (and most are grafted) – and all the suckers are straight. If you don’t pull suckers off when they’re tiny, they’ll reshoot. Layer contorted hazel by bending part of a pliable branch into a shallow hole, making a few shallow cuts at the bottom of the bend. Rub rooting hormone into the cuts, cover the bent branch with soil, and weight it. After two years, check for new growth. If it is growing, remove the weight and tug gently. If it holds fast, wait another six months, sever it from mother, then wait a couple of months longer. If it’s still healthy and growing after two months transplant your new, own-root contorted hazel tree. It will make suckers, too – but all will be curly.

Ah, the start of a fresh year. What better time is there to make a pact with oneself to start anew? In the position of a culinary instructor, I encounter many situations with people wanting to improve areas of the culinary arts within their home kitchens and lifestyles. If you are undecided about making a resolution, contemplate making one focusing on the culinary aspect in your life. The most common culinary resolution would be one of dietetic boundaries. Many people have the aspiration to start the New Year with a promise of either losing weight or getting in better physical shape. The change in what you consume on a daily basis will obviously influence your success, or lack thereof. Try making a resolution to investigate low fat, low carbohydrate, and/or high protein cooking. It will involve educating yourself, and putting the acquired information into practice. Go to the library and Internet, buy a cookbook, or take a cooking class. Or resolve to revamp the state of your pantry and the food supply in your kitchen.

Perhaps you have always wanted a pantry more focused on your favourite cuisines. Someone who loves Italian and Greek cuisine would stock their pantry with various types of olives, capers, tomatoes, grape leaves, olive oils, balsamic vinegars, etc. The refrigerator and freezer can also be coordinated to contain the perishables of the same cuisine. Motivation to focus more on certain cuisines will start with having the ingredients at your fingertips. One can take this to the extreme in organization by creating labels and segregating areas in your pantry for different food groupings. The simplest of all culinary resolutions, however, is to blow dust off your cookbooks and start making some new dishes. We all have collections of cookbooks… with many of them going unused. Make it a goal in your home to open up a cookbook once or twice a week and try a new recipe. Make sure you are setting yourself up for success. Decide on and investigate the recipe before the day you plan to make it. Buy the

ingredients ahead of time, and ensure that you have the basic equipment and utensils necessary. That will help eliminate stress that you may encounter during preparation. “Attitude is everything.” That is the best advice I can give you. Whatever you approach in life, from making a resolution, making new friends or making a new recipe, proceed in a positive fashion. You will always find what you are searching for. If you look for the positives in something or someone, you will always find them. The same applies if you are seeking out negatives. Be aware of what you are looking for, and your experience will always be more rewarding.

Lightning strikes

The Langley Lightning filled the Clearview IceCats’ net with pucks during a midget girls hockey game Tuesday at the Langley Events Centre. Above right – The Lightning’s Chelsea Wilson (left) celebrated a goal with a teammate. The game, which Langley won by a 5-0 score, was part of the Angels On Ice tournament which ran this past week, Dec. 27-30. Scoring for Langley against the visitors from Ontario was Sarah Boehringer with a hat trick and Keara Graham with two goals. Langley advanced to the championship final in the midget rep division before losing 4-1 to Kamloops. This year’s tournament drew 57 teams in divisions ranging from atom to juvenile.

Two members of the Langley Olympians Swim Club (LOSC), Hillary Metcalfe and Justin Schramm, have been selected to represent Team BC at the Pacific Coast All Stars Meet next month. The two 12-year-olds each qualified by being among the eight fastest swimmers in their age group: Metcalfe in the 200-metre IM and Schramm in the 100m fly. The fastest eight swimmers among the 11- and 12year-old and 13- and 14-year-old girls and boys make up a team of 32 from across the province, which will travel to Mt. Hood in Oregon. Team BC will be competing against Southern California, Oregon, Pacific Northwest, and Northern California on Jan. 8 and 9. This meet is an annual event in which Team BC has competed against these swimming bodies over the past few years. Team BC has placed in the top three to four teams over this period of time. Last year saw Metcalfe and Michael MacDonald represent the LOSC in Southern California, and in 2008 Kate Thomson and MacDonald were selected from the local club. The LOSC’s head coach will be travelling with Team BC as the coach for the 11-12 girls’ team. Olympians’ registration is ongoing and the club is currently offering a free month to new members.

It’s not often where you show marked improvement and still lose by close to 30 points. Such was the case for the Trinity Western University Spartans women’s basketball team, which fell 75-47 to the nationally No. 1 ranked University of Windsor Lancers Wednesday in Windsor, Ontario. Even though they lost by 28 points, the Spartans looked much better than they did the previous day against the Lancers. In the opening game of the Lancers Holiday Classic tournament, the Spartans improved dramatically, as they only trailed by 12 points heading into the final quarter and were even at 13 after the first 10 minutes. During Tuesday’s contest, the first ever meeting between the two schools, TWU was never in the game as they trailed by 31 points at the half before falling 92-36. “It was a much improved effort which has been evident all sea-

University men’s volleyball

Spartans host elite tourney

The Langley Events Centre will be the site of high-calibre volleyball action next week.



The Trinity Western University men’s volleyball team is ringing in the new year by hosting some of the top teams in Canada. The Spartans Holiday Classic Jan. 3-5 at the Langley Events Centre is an eight-team tournament that will give the Spartans an opportunity to compete against four of the top 10 teams in the current CIS rankings. The structure mirrors that of the CIS national championship, which TWU will host March 4-6. “The Holiday Classic has really three objectives,” said Spartans

coach Ben Josephson. “It provides three high quality exhibition matches for our team as we prepare for the second semester. It exposes us to the same format as the national championships in the same venue. And finally it allows our department to have a ‘dress rehearsal’ for nationals so we can iron out any wrinkly details.” The tournament will feature nationally No. 3 ranked Calgary, No. 8 Dalhousie, No. 9 Thompson Rivers, UBC, Queen’s, UBC-Okanagan, and the FVVC Men (a Fraser Valley Volleyball Club team made up of alumni and a few current Spartans). TWU comes into the tournament having swept its final Canada West series of the first semester with a pair of 3-0 wins over Winnipeg.

The Trinity Western men have now won six of their last seven games. But with such high quality acrossCanada competition participating in the tournament, the Spartans will be in tough to defend their home court. The Spartans will be led by fourthyear setter Ben Ball – whose 387 assists is second most in the CIS, Rudy Verhoeff – whose 3.61 kills per set is 10th best in the CIS, and Lucas Van Berkel – whose 1.68 blocks per set is second in the nation. The tournament will also featureCalgary’s Graham Vigrass, who is the top percentage hitter in the CIS (45.9 per cent), Thompson River’s Kevin Tillie, whose 4.79 kills per set is second most in the CIS, and UBC’s Blair Bann, who is the top libero in Canada with 4.24 digs per set.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Changes loom in your ambitions, career, relations with VIPs, and your reputation. Chase success in these now, as December’s delays are past. Sunday’s wise: ponder your life direction. Pursue ambitions Monday/ Tuesday: good luck accompanies you, but so do a couple of pitfalls. A peer might fight against your rise, or your social inclinations (present or past) could mark you as unreliable, a lightweight or untrustworthy. On the plus side (and the plus is far stronger) your eagerness, as well as your contacts with administrations or government agencies, boost your prospects. Taurus April 20-May 20: Remain “above” prurient interests Sunday. Don’t invest. The weeks ahead emphasize gentle love, wisdom, compassion, far travel, intellectual pursuits, higher education, cultural or legal involvements and “big media.” December’s delays are over in these and other areas, so charge forward, especially Monday/Tuesday, when a new project might start in school, travel, a media campaign, etc. There’s a strong hint that this new venture involves a change and a “larger love!” (You might fall in love!) Work or career duties interfere with those love/travel things, so keep them apart. Gemini May 21-June 20: This week contains yes’s and no’s. The biggest “no” occurs Tuesday and Friday in investment, large money, power, clout and sexual areas. (Especially if these also involve legal, international, intellectual and cultural arenas.) The yes’s? In work, health, career Monday to Wednesday and Saturday: commitment equals eventual winning! If you have to choose between love, creativity and risk on one side and big money, clout, power, sexual magnetism on the other, choose love, creativity, risk: they control the environment right now. Your finances need change, but not expansion. You’re loved.

Cancer June 21-July 22: December’s delays are past, so you can confidently move forward, start projects, etc. The general accent lies now on relationships, opportunities and challenges, diplomacy and co-operation. This week contains beautiful “open doors” (especially to love and legal, international and intellectual relationships) and one major closed door (generally, to a “mature” relationship or to a practical, business-oriented agreement). If you recognize which is which, what’s open, what’s closed, you’ll save time, effort. Hint: “H,” “S” and “Y” have closed vibes. Breakthroughs Monday to Wednesday! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Work, work and health issues, Leo. Ah, well, just plod through. The confusions and delays of December are gone. Sunday’s mildly romantic. A new work project might start Monday/ Tuesday – some great luck fills the security-homeinvestment-commitment area these days. It’s a great time to invest – but not in machinery, work tools, new employees, etc. Applies all week to Friday morning. Changing your work-home set-up might benefit you. (E.g., moving your office to your home.) Relationships are pleasant Wednesday noon to Friday. Secrets, sexy lures and good research doorways Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Spend Sunday quietly at home. Romance is very complicated (and will stay so through mid-late 2012). Your romantic side suffers from conflicting motives, urges. Romance is trying to conquer itself, or reshape itself into something new. (For romance, you can read: sense of love, pleasure, self-indulgence, ego, creativity, risk, joy.) Where love is mature, seeks partnership, it succeeds (especially Monday/Tuesday and Friday night/Saturday). Where it “refuses to grow up,” it loses. (I think; everything’s complicated.) Work succeeds Wednesday noon to Friday. Don’t gamble nor invest this week.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: This entire decade (and half of next) life nudges you to change your abode. This will often peak in winter, as it did last week and does now. But there is also a problem around your home 2010-2012. You might be subject to a force larger than yourself. E.g., you might have to move due to expropriation, a legal ruling, the job market, etc. A change in abode can also merely mean a renovation, or a child moves away to school, etc. – natural, good things! Monday/Tuesday are excellent days to act on these nudges toward change, but not to attempt to overrule them. That won’t work. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The delays and confusions of December are ended, so march ahead. Avoid major investments before Jan. 22. The grace and charm of your communications helps you capture love, especially Monday/Tuesday and Friday night/Saturday. But avoid gossip, revealing too much, or speech that is too sober or ambitious – these chase love away. The same advice, pro and con, applies to travel, general communications, and casual friendships. Watch what you tell “head office.” Chase money Sunday. Home, family co-operate and please you Wednesday eve to Friday. Discuss summer travel. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Chase money, buy and sell, seek a pay raise, more clients, etc. You can safely pursue new projects, as December’s delays are over. But don’t confuse chasing money with chasing your dreams. They are yet are not one and the same. They might directly conflict – e.g., I dream of living on a south sea island, but I can’t earn my living there; or both dreams and your money situation might change and evolve in a kind of tag-team wrestling match. To get your dream you change your job, and that in turn changes your dreams. Such choices arise Monday/ Tuesday (lucky!) and late week.

Jan. 2 - Jan. 9 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness ride a wave of success! Rest, catch your breath Sunday: contemplate future steps. Your energy soars Monday to Wednesday. Communications prove very lucky, especially on the social side. But in all this there might be the accurate realization that your social methods/goals have to change and, further complicating it, that your social desires are tied to your prestige and accomplishments. E.g., you can only join that new circle if your career rises a rung or two. You’ll succeed, you’ll climb that ladder. Chase money Thursday/Friday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Optimism makes Sunday happy, but your energy and charisma temporarily ebb to a low point until Jan. 20. So stay in the background, rest, be charitable, deal with government and/or institutions, fulfil neglected obligations, seek spiritual enlightenment. These areas are emphasized Monday to Wednesday noon – a new project might begin, or you might perceive how these areas are in need of deep change (a long, deep change – now to 2024). Your legal situation or “world view” might be preventing such change. Think! Career and money face super luck Monday/Tuesday – start something! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: December’s delays are finished, so charge after your goals and wishes. Be ambitious Sunday; deal with higher-ups. Your luck soars Monday to Wednesday dawn, especially in legal, publishing, far travel, international, educational, media and cultural ventures, and particularly where these involve social/romantic wishes or career ambitions. Whatever happens, don’t be skeptical: love, embrace, start things! Realize your social goals are changing: promote this. Rest, retreat late Wednesday to Friday. Your charisma and energy soar in time for a New Year’s celebration. You’ll be feted! • Reading: 416-686-5014

Gold Key Sales

Springman’s Auto Centre

The current dealership has Langley City approval to do an upgrade. The plans (below right) were unveiled at the last City council meeting of 2010.

by Heather Colpitts

Preston GM is over the first speedbump on its way to redeveloping its longtime dealership at the corner of 200th Street and the Langley Bypass. George Preston started the dealership several decades ago, and at Monday’s City council meeting, the dealership’s application for redevelopment was approved. “The current owners are doing, I think, a very progressive update,” said Albert Techlenborg of Teck Construction, which is overseeing the project. Work has begun. For example, the body shop has been moved to Logan Avenue, and the firm plans to move more work to the industrial area so that the 200th Street site has a larger showroom, outdoor vehicle display area, and service bays. The renovations will keep the same two entry/ exit points on the lot, but will reconfigure the layout to make the flow of vehicles and people more efficient. The renovation work is expected to take place

over the next year. Preston’s is one of the dealerships that survived when GM restructured and forced the closure of 40 per cent of its operations, including its Gold Key lot on the Langley Bypass, which now operates under another automaker. More information about the project is available through the Langley City website under City council agendas.
