PETITION SAVES FLEA MARKET SURREY – The Cloverdale Marisa Flea Market, which was in BABIC Staff Reporter danger of closure, will continue to operate. Dave Melenchuk, general manager of the Cloverdale Rodeo and Exhibition Association, said Tuesday the association will work in partnership with the flea market organizer to boost attendance at the weekly bazaar by adding vendors and other attractions. “We’re very pleased to be in much more of a partnership role with the operator in order to bring some entertainment event expertise of our organization to an already

extremely popular event,” Melenchuk said in a press release. “We went through an RFP process to explore options to the association and in working through that process felt our current operator was the best potential partner for us, and we’re excited to become more actively involved in this local tradition. “Patrons can expect the same great flea market as before, along with additional elements for the whole family to enjoy.” Earlier, an association official had said that the association’s board of directors was working with city staff to create a

completely new vision for the site. The plan was to open an upscale farmers’ market in June modelled on the Granville Island Pubic Market, a change that would have meant no more used wares for sale at the venue. See OUR VIEW, page 12

Upset by the proposed changes, some vendors launched a campaign to save the flea market, which has been held on the Cloverdale Fairgrounds nearly every Sunday for 33 years. Helen Wood, a vendor at the Cloverdale

rowing up in the ’70s, one of the political buzz phrases of the time referred to Canada as a nation of two solitudes — English and French. After watching the election results Monday night, I can’t help but fear our nation is in the process of finding a new

way of dividing itself. While the English-French differences remain unresolved, the Canadian electorate has seen fit to embark on a new path of animosity — call it Two Solitudes 2.0 — this one marked along left wing and right wing battle lines. The term “two solitudes”

springs from a Hugh MacLennan novel of the same name and came to represent the division between Canadians of English and French heritage. Neither side understands the other, nor are they interested in bridging the gap.

see MISTRUST page 3 

Flea Market for 30 years, started a petition drive and in just two Sundays she and her associates gathered 3,300 names on the petition. Wood later presented the petition to association officials. When contacted on Tuesday, Wood said she was pleased with the news that the flea market will remain in place. She believes the petition helped “an awful lot” in letting officials know just how unhappy sellers and shoppers were about the threatened loss of the popular flea market. mbabic@thenownewspaper.com

Judge adjourns case involving Surrey school officials charged with fraud Mistrust inevitable when we’re polarized Marisa BABIC Staff Reporter

SURREY – Two former Surrey school officials facing fraud charges will have to wait longer to learn their fate. Robert Chadwick, a former associate superintendent, and

his wife Barbara Chadwick, who was an administrative assistant, were slated to plead guilty to the charges in Surrey provincial court Wednesday. But the lawyers sought an adjournment, a request that was granted by Judge James Bahen. The lawyers told the judge

they need more time to resolve issues surrounding the case. The charges against the couple stem from allegations they stole US $167,689.32 from the Surrey school district. Robert “Bob” Chadwick was charged with one count each of theft over $5,000, fraud over

$5,000 and breach of trust by a public officer. His wife, Barbara Chadwick (née Moore), was charged with one count each of theft over $5,000 and fraud over $5,000. No date has yet been set for the couple’s next court appearance.

 continued from page 1 Communication between the two polarities is minimal and, given the lack of understanding between them, mistrust is inevitable, leading to inevitable stereotyping. As British Columbians, this scenario is remarkably familiar. Throw out the English and French labels and replace them with “free enterprisers” and “soft socialists” and you have the dogmatic extremes that have polarized this province for more than half a century. The Conservatives/ SoCreds/Liberals write off everything coming from the CCF/NDP camp as pie-inthe-sky dreams of the pseudocommies, a mindset that is matched by the left wingers who see their opponents as money-grubbing pawns of the corporate elite. There is plenty of talking on both sides, but not much listening going on. As of Monday night, this bullheaded pageant of the extremes has moved on to a bigger stage. Like two tectonic plates moving in opposite directions, the left and the right have pulled away and the middle ground has disappeared all together. The Bloc Quebecois had already survived long past its bestbefore date so it wasn’t much of a surprise that the voters in Quebec were willing to hitch their wagon to a more promising gravy train. The real eyebrow raising comes from the way the voters in the rest of the country chose to hammer the Liberals. Canada’s self-styled governing party has been rendered irrelevant. What we are left with is a political landscape of extremes. Like Great Britain (Labour vs. Tories), the United States (Democrats vs. Republicans) and yes, British Columbia (Liberals vs. NDP), Canada’s House of Commons is now divided firmly along left/right ideological lines. Two Solitudes 2.0 may ultimately usher in a period of stability that needed four elections in seven years to establish. Unfortunately, the behaviour of the parties on both sides of the abyss during the recent spate of minority governments has proved neither has the tolerance or the inclination to work and play well with others.

DRUNK DRIVER KILLS YOUNG SURREY WOMAN, POLICE SAY SURREY – A Surrey woman, Tom ZYTARUK who police say ran off after blowStaff Reporter ing through a red light in her van and killing another motorist, is facing a charge of impaired driving causing death. The victim, a 22-year-old woman driving a red BMW sedan, had been passing through the intersection of 152nd Street and 64th Avenue on a green light just after 10 p.m. when the white Ford Econoline van T-boned the driver’s side of her car. Surrey RCMP Cpl. Drew Grainger said police believe the van was doing about 100 kilometres an

hour when it broadsided the BMW. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. Grainger said witnesses told police that the 34year-old driver of the van ran off into some nearby woods, where she was subsequently arrested. “She was symptomatic of being impaired,” Grainger said. “Just another senseless death that seems to be attributable to impaired driving.” Names had not been released by press time. Police say the suspect was not injured. She was released from custody to appear in court at a later date. tzytaruk@thenownewspaper.com

Eight days booked for reporter Bencze’s sex crime hearing

RON BENCZE

SURREY – Former television reporter Ron Bencze has pleaded not guilty to molesting three children and his preliminary hearing has been set for eight days, to begin Jan. 24 in Surrey provincial court. The 44-year-old Surrey resident has been on bail since the day after his Jan. 18 arrest, but he did not appear in court Wednesday. Lawyer Andrea Camilletti, an associate

of Bencze’s lawyer Richard Peck, entered the plea on his behalf. Bencze has elected to be tried by judge alone. He has been charged with nine sexual offences related to three alleged victims under age 16. The former Global TV news reporter lost his job with the station last month, following a suspension after his arrest. – Tom Zytaruk

SURREY – Some Cloverdale residents fear that two proposed cellphone towers near their homes might pose health risks and lower their property values. Heather Strack lives closer to one of the proposed sites but feels “caught in between the two towers.” One of the towers is being proposed for a spot across the street from the Northview Golf and Country Club and near the Czorny Alzheimer Centre at 66th Ave and 168th Street. Stracks says a cell tower situated in the densely populated residential area will be an eyesore and hurt property values. The other cell tower is proposed for a site near the Cloverdale Athletic Park at 64th Avenue and 168 Street. Newly proposed cell towers often provoke controversy because some people worry about longterm exposure to radiation emitted by the towers, although Health Canada suggests these fears aren’t warranted. On its website, the agency states that the consensus of the scientific community is that radiofrequency energy from cell towers is “too low to cause adverse health effects.” The application for the cell towers is before Surrey city hall and opponents are mobilizing for a fight. The group has organized a public information meeting for Thursday, May 5 at Northview Golf and Country Club at 7 p.m. City officials weren’t available for comment.

Re: Public Open Houses to provide input on the City of Surrey Dog Off Leash Master Plan Strategy (2011 – 2020)

SURREY – Surrey Mounties are investigating a shooting Monday night in Newton that appears to have been related to a marijuana grow-op on Hyland Road. Mounties responding to complaints of shots fired in the 14400-block of 68th Avenue stopped a Dodge Caravan seen leaving the area and found its passenger had been shot in the gut. The 28-year-old Surrey man was taken to hospital, where he is listed in serious but stable condition and the driver was arrested. At about the same time, police also stopped a Chevy pickup in the 14400-

❚ FEDERAL ELECTION ❚SURREY NORTH

❚NEWTON-NORTH DELTA

NDP’s Sandhu vows to work hard

New MP Jinny Sims raring for action

SURREY – It’s the mor- Ted ning after Monday’s federal COLLEY election and Surrey North’s Staff Reporter new MP is ready to go. New Democrat Jasbir Sandhu won the riding from Dona Cadman, the Conservative incumbent, in a hardfought race that for much of the night was too close to call as returns trickled in. It was nearly 11 p.m. – four hours after the polls closed – before Cadman showed up at her election night headquarters to concede defeat. But in the end, the win went to Sandhu. “What a night,” the winner said Tuesday morning. “We knew coming in it would be a tight fight, but I had an excellent team behind me.” That team included local NDP heavyweights like former provincial cabinet minister and Surrey city councillor Penny Priddy, who also served one term as MP for Surrey North after being elected in 2006. Surrey-Whalley MLA, Bruce Ralston also contributed to Sandhu’s victory. When the dust settled, Sandhu won the race with just under 1,500 votes in hand over second-place finisher Cadman. Now the real work begins. With 102 seats in the House of Commons, the NDP is now Canada’s Official Opposition, easily displacing the Liberals from the Number Two spot. Sandhu believes his party’s new status

SURREY – Tories, put up Tom your dukes. ZYTARUK Staff Reporter “I don’t plan to go there and sit silently,” Jinny Sims says as she awaits her first parliamentary marching orders from NDP leader Jack Layton. “I’m a fighter.” The newly elected New Democrat MP for Newton-North Delta doesn’t know yet when she’s going to be sworn in, but she’s ready for action. “I intend to be a very loud voice for this community.” Sims, a resident of North Delta, is the first NDPer to hold this riding. Despite being a former president of the B.C. Teachers’ Federation, she says she hasn’t any designs on seeking education as a shadow portfolio, though the field is dear to her heart. She’ll be just as happy, she adds, fighting poverty, trying to improve her riding’s economy and lobbying the government for improved health care. “Whatever work I’m assigned,” she says. “I’m just looking forward to putting my heart and soul into it.” As for Sukh Dhaliwal, the Liberal MP Sims put out of a job Monday night,

means New Democrats can influence government policy. “I’m going to work very hard for the citizens of Surrey North,” Sandhu said. “People have issues around affordability, the HST, health care. We will be holding (Prime Minister Stephen) Harper accountable for all the things he does.” Cadman won Surrey North in 2008 by a slim 1,106vote margin over her NDP opponent Rachid Arab, a virtual unknown. She endured harsh criticism for dodging a December 2009 vote on the HST after saying just the day before she would vote against her party and the tax. Cadman explained her change of heart by saying she didn’t want to embarrass her party with a “no” vote. The issue was raised in this campaign and again Cadman faced criticism in the press and from her opponents for ducking all-candidates forums and media interviews where the question might arise. tcolley@thenownewspaper.com

his fight is now of a different nature. Dhaliwal says the Liberals have a big job ahead of them if the party intends to rebuild. “It’s going to take time,” he says the morning after the vote. “Realistically, there’s a long journey ahead.” Dhaliwal says the party needs a “young, energetic, charismatic leader.” Though things look dire now, he notes, he’s confident the Liberal party will remain a Canadian political institution. “We have to stick together.” He would rather not see the remaining Liberal MPs form some sort of coalition with the NDP official opposition. “I don’t believe in that,” he says. “The NDP can never ever provide economic stability.” Dhaliwal says he’ll help the party rebuild. Will he ever run for office again? “It’s too early for me to say anything,” he replies. “I can’t make that decision myself.” It’s Tuesday morning, and he’s in a quiet, reflective mood. “I’ve put 10 years into this,” the two-term former MP notes. “I feel very proud that I served the people of Newton-North Delta. It’s all about serving the community one way or another.” As for Sims, she says the lesson to be learned from the Liberal party’s losses on election night has not been lost her. “The Liberals did fail to play the role of opposition,” she says. tzytaruk@thenownewspaper.com

Lots to write about after hectic April MyView

What a month April has been! April usually means me waiting for cherry blossoms to appear on the trees in my neighbourhood and the annual Surrey Vaisakhi parade conHarvinder troversy to read and SANDHU talk about. It also means the family enjoying the playoffs. This April, we also had the federal election to entertain us – an election that generated big surprises. Monday’s vote gave the Conservatives the majority they have been wanting, while at the same time it was also the worst showing at the polls for the Liberals. But the NDP stole the show. They are now the official opposition – and are deserving of this. The media is still talking to experts about Stephen Harper’s “hidden agenda.” Some pundits say he won’t do anything to harm the new voters who supported the Tories, while others say just wait and see. Either way, we won’t know if this majority win is good or bad for the country until some time has passed under his leadership. I hope he does what is good for the country, especially now that the “minority” shackles have been removed. On the NDP: It seems everybody and the media are gaga about this “come from behind” party. I even heard sports commentators use “NDP” to describe a team that was behind and how it can have the same success as this political party.

On the Vaisakhi parade: Surrey RCMP was on top of the parade organizers to make sure controversial stuff didn’t hit the streets this year. In the future, they might want to invest in having a Punjabi-speaking officer stationed at the organizer’s stage to ensure no extremist views are promoted by those on the stage. I was stunned by what I heard. It was heartening to see parade goers not paying any attention to the nonsense coming out of the mouths of those on stage. They were busy enjoying the sunshine and great food. On the playoffs: Finally my youngest was able to sleep happily after the Canucks sent the Blackhawks packing. This win was very important for the team and its fans. In fact, it was huge. The relief of finally beating the Blackhawks in the playoffs needed an outlet – and the place to do it in Surrey was at the 72nd Avenue and Scott Road intersection. I promised my boys I would take them there if the Canucks won. And I did. It was one crazy place. The best part was watching young South Asians and Caucasians dancing together on the street to the beat of the dhol celebrating. Now that we have the Nashville Predators to beat, the emotional roller coaster has started again. And I’m still waiting for the cherry blossoms to appear on the trees in my cul-de-sac.

BUILDING FOR BETTER HEALTH “This Centre represents a significant shift in how we will deliver care.” -Peter Goldthorpe, Vice President of Capital Projects, Real Estate and Facilities, Fraser Health

LEARN MORE Go to www.fraserhealth.ca for more information about the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre and to watch our video. Details about our public open house coming soon.

Only 27 days and counting until the opening Patient centred care begins at the doorstep of the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre, a new Fraser Health building opening June 1 in the heart of Surrey. Every aspect of the five-storey building at 140 Street and Fraser Highway was thoughtfully designed to meet the needs of outpatients – those who don’t require emergency care or an overnight hospital stay.

Architects worked closely with Fraser Health clinical groups to make each patient’s experience as stress-free as possible. A “one-stop shopping” approach brings together related services in the same location. Exam rooms are soundproofed and spacious enough to accommodate not only the patient and care team but family members as well. “The flow, the convenience – everything we’ve done is to improve health outcomes and make a visit more pleasant,” said Barry Pearce, Chief Project Officer.

Fraser Health services and programs are already booking patients for diagnostic scans and tests, specialist consults, follow-up care, chronic illness management and a variety of treatments and day surgeries at this new Centre.

Colour-coded lights can indicate room status to help maximize room use and reduce waits. Computers are in every room for quick access to records and information. Elder friendly modifications, including handrails, are throughout.

But not only will the Pattison Outpatient Centre increase health care capacity in Surrey and throughout the Fraser Health region, it was built with a focus on patient care, comfort and convenience.

Healing atmosphere Design inspiration came from the environment – the nearby Green Timbers forest and the sustainable approach required for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) gold status.

“This building will enable us to provide care for outpatients in a setting that was specifically designed for them,” said Peter Goldthorpe, Vice President of Capital Projects, Real Estate and Facilities for Fraser Health. “It represents a significant shift in how we will deliver care.”

As a result, the Centre is bright and welcoming with extensive use of wood in the décor and expansive windows that invite in natural light and views of trees and gardens. Other touches include stress-reducing sky ceilings in CT and MRI rooms and a non-denominational sacred space for quiet reflection.

The right services in the right space As you enter the window-lined lobby visitors can quickly orient themselves with the help of computer express check-in kiosks, reception staff, and clear, simple signage.

Equipped for the future With population growth and ongoing improvements in technology the Outpatient Centre can keep pace with advances thanks to built-in infrastructure, such as special shielding in rooms, and wiring and space for future equipment.

“We kept the future in mind in building this Centre so that expansion will be significantly less expensive and disruptive to patient care,” noted Bill Mesquitta of BCHS Healthcare, which built, financed and will maintain the facility. The facility itself can expand by 30 per cent.

Flea market thankfully survives ‘upscale’ snobbiness I f you were at the Cloverdale Flea Market on Sunday, what did you see? Did you see an empty parking lot, or did you struggle to find parking? Did you see a stagnant tradition on its last legs or did you see a thriving market that was packed with smiling families? We were there and we saw the latter – that’s why we are glad to report on today’s front page that this 30-year tradition will live on. A petition with 3,300 names

to add to the already popular market. But we are still taken aback by association president Shannon Claypool’s comments in our April 12 issue when he said he didn’t want a flea market there anymore. He even insulted vendors and shoppers when he poked fun at some of the market’s wares (“upscale” market rules would have required vendors upgrade their goods and stop selling “used merchandise and cellphone covers.”

To be sure, the rodeo association – likely influenced by its new blood – came off as snobby. It’s great to have a vision for a better community event, but it’s another to shove aside the community to make it happen. In the end, the association did the right thing by letting the flea market stay. Maybe next time the association has an “upscale” vision, it will think harder about how it wants to expound it in the media. – The Now

think about it. I mean, the NDP has been around forever and Jacko is no newcomer either, so why all the excitement now? Were we missing something up ’til now? Is there something special about the Jackalope that most of us just couldn’t see? Is there a leak in our collective exhaust system? What? It would be interesting to read an analysis of the mechanics of Jackomania, but my guess is it would come down to the really low personality threshold set by the other party leaders. Harper has all the charm of a brick, Bloc head Duceppe ditto and I’ve been told people occasionally will hold a mirror to Ignatieff’s lips just to assure themselves he’s still breathing. With competition like this, it’s not difficult to stand out. The Jackmeister is blessed with bags of personality by comparison

and, as I’ve said before, he’s pretty. Seriously, put a hardhat, some work boots, a tool belt and a pair of Daisy Dukes on the man and you’re half way to a rousing chorus of “YMCA.” Now, before all you diehard NDPers grab your ropes and go looking for a sturdy tree branch, let me say, all kidding aside, Jack did a hell of a job. He got a bunch of Canadians off their butts and involved in this election and that’s no small feat. We are a pretty apathetic group, we Canadians. We care more about the Canucks than we do about democracy. On Monday, only 61.4 per cent of eligible voters bothered to exercise their right as citizens of this country. I know I’m getting preachy here, but 45,400 Canadian soldiers died in the Second World War defending your right to vote. Come to think of it, I guess they also died to

protect your right to be too damn lazy or indifferent, or both, to cast a ballot, but to hell with you, I say. If that last sentence describes you, shame. If it describes you, don’t let me hear you whining about anything Ottawa does, you haven’t earned the right, so sit down and shut up. There, I said it and I’m glad. As for me, I take my cheap shots, but that’s what they pay me to do. I’m a professional smartass, after all. In truth, my hat’s off to Jack, Stephen, Michael, Gilles and every other Canadian who stood for election. Thank you all. Most of all, though, thank you, Jack Layton, for putting the lie to that most weasely excuse for not voting, that it makes no difference. The hell it doesn’t.

Hats off to all who stood for election – especially good ol’ Jack Go figure politics. Up until a week before election day, the federal campaign just concluded was Ted a pretty ho-hum COLLEY affair, an election nobody wanted and few people seemed to care much about. Week after week went by with little in the way of excitement, then – blammo – things got crazy. The public suddenly discovered Jack Layton and the NDP and launched the party from its traditional gig as bit player in Ottawa to the Official Opposition. That last bit works best if you imagine it being spoken by the guy who does the voiceovers for the monster truck commercials. So now it’s up to Jack and the kids to keep Little Stevie Wonder and his majority Conservative government from taking the bit in their teeth and dragging us all back to the Reagan era. The whole Orange Crush phenomenon is pretty weird when you

saved the market from the “upscale” vision that is shared by the city and Cloverdale Rodeo and Exhibition Association. We told readers in early April that the flea market was on its last legs, due to the group’s new vision for the Sunday event. Readers and vendors alike flooded us with calls and emails, as they did with the rodeo association, we’re sure. We applaud the association for being willing to listen to residents and vendors and work with them

Hardy Staub’s a sore loser The Editor, Re: “Hiebert: I’m just so relieved for the country,” the Now, May 3. I can’t believe the audacity of federal Liberal candidate Hardy Staub – who came in third behind federal NDP candidate Susan Keeping – righteously saying he certainly pointed out the faults of Conservative candidate Russ Hiebert, the victor of the election. Thank you, Mr. Staub, for being so magnanimous in your loss.

Remember, when you point fingers at someone, there are three pointing back at yourself. And to all those who have nothing but vile things to say about our MP Russ Hiebert – get a life.

Your bias is showing, Sandhu The Editor, Re: “Vaisakhi backlash predictable, sad,” the Now, April 29. Here we go again. Bias against South Asians? Give me a break, Harvinder Sandhu. The Now was flooded with proVaisakhi coverage that week, more so I would suggest than is given to Easter celebrations or any other religious celebrations. And as for a general bias against South Asians in Surrey, well what about Sandhu’s own bias against the general non-Asian population? In August, Sandhu wrote a very insulting column entitled “South Asians value hard work,” wherein she suggested that South Asian Canadians were harder working, and better at delaying gratification than non-South Asian Canadians. More recently, she wrote a column where she made a point of distinguishing between “immigrants” and “Canadians” – one has to be a Canadian to vote in Canada – and claiming that they are more eager to vote than nonimmigrant Canadians.

Sandhu claims that she doesn’t like to be labelled and she and other South Asians are just Canadians like the rest of us. I couldn’t agree more. However, when her own bias against the general non-South Asian community is revealed, she obviously feels it is then acceptable and convenient to stereotype nonSouth Asians as less hard working, less eager to vote, and less able to delay gratification, and without a history of hardship when immigrating to Canada. One can’t have it both ways, Ms. Sandhu, so maybe think before you accuse the non-South Asian population of a negative bias given your record of negative, selfrighteous commentary about nonSouth Asians.

Dhaliwal will be missed The Editor, Re: “NDP steals two in Surrey,” the Now, May 3. Sukh Dhaliwal will be missed by many of the community service organizations in North Delta and Surrey. He is one of a few politicians who will open his wallet, as well as his mouth, in support of a good community project. We worked together to raise the money for Operation Remembrance, which placed headstones on the

unmarked graves of some 30 veterans of the First World War. Sukh, thanks for your commitment to those of us who believe in community service and for putting a very successful business life on hold to be our Member of Parliament.

Letters

The Editor, Re: “NDP steals two in Surrey,” the Now, May 3. Congratulations to Jasbir Sandhu and Jinny Sims for their hard-fought campaigns. It looks like we’ll have strong representation in Ottawa again for Surrey and North Delta. Anyone who has ever heard Jinny speak in public can imagine the effect she will have on the sleepy Conservative majority. Jasbir is a local boy, a shining role model for all the Surrey kids who dream of playing in the NHL – now they can dream of being a Member of Parliament and going to Ottawa to speak up for the rights and the needs of their friends and neighbours. Ottawa look out!

Only one crematorium in South Surrey, White Rock

The Editor, Re: “Widow suing White Rock’s Just-Cremation for incinerating body before autopsy performed,” the Now, May 3. As general manager of Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre, Cemetery & Crematorium, I read with interest the above article. To eliminate ambiguity, I wish to clarify there is no crematorium in White Rock proper and we at Victory Memorial Park Crematorium are the only crematorium in the South Surrey/White Rock area. We are in no way affiliated with Pacific Crematorium Limited or Just Cremation, which operates from the Aldergrove area of the Fraser Valley. I would be pleased to see this clarified in an upcoming edition of the Now.

Because the show involves Tom ZILLICH a royal mystery and a couple Staff Reporter of weddings, viewers are encouraged to wear wedding hats and fascinators to the first two stagings (May 11-12) of The Gondoliers at Surrey Arts Centre. Hat-wearing ticketholders at the The Fraser Valley Gilbert and Sullivan Society shows will be entered into a draw to have a donation made to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Royal Wedding Charity Fund. It’s a charitable tie-in for the musical production, the script of which involves a pair of gondoliers, their new brides and a quest to see exactly which of the boat paddlers is, in fact, a king. The society’s spring show promises a cheerfully absurd plot, memorable tunes and lively dancing. The script, which takes viewers to Venice and Barataria, is rife with good-natured pokes at business, politics, love triangles and people of different social classes. Since January, rehearsals for the show have been held three times weekly (for three hours each time) at St. Cuthbert Anglican Church in North Delta and also at Valley View funeral home in Surrey. “It’s a big commitment of time for everyone involved,” said Roger Hussen, who has a starring role in the show (as The Duke of PlazaToro) and also serves as the society’s publicist. “Not everyone goes to every rehearsal, but now we’re all going strong with it, running the show for the last week and a bit.” There are 11 show times for the The Gondoliers during its May 11-21 run at Surrey Arts Centre’s studio theatre — down the hall from the mainstage space used by the society for its popular winter pantos. “Personally, I like the studio theatre space because you’re closer to the audience and it’s an intimate space,” Hussen said. “We’ve downsized our orchestra as well, to not be too overwhelming to the voices, but it’s a good space for singing and acoustics. I like the interaction with the audience that’s possible in the studio theatre there.” Over the years, four productions of The Gondoliers have been staged by Fraser Valley Gilbert and Sullivan Society, now its 29th season. This version of the W.S. Gilbert/Arthur Sullivan collaboration is produced by Reginald Pillay with the help of artistic director Christina Wells Campbell, music director Vashti Fairbairn and choreographer Carol Seitz.

Doug Bennett is no longer rocking, but his Slugs still do. The good-time R&B/ rock band is booked to headline Cloverdale Rodeo & Country Fair’s outdoor entertainment Tom stage at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, ZILLICH May 22. Singer and bandleader Bennett died in a Calgary hospital in 2004, but the band’s five other original members have soldiered on with new vocalist Ted Okos hitting the right notes on “Too Bad,” “Chinatown Calculation” and other memorable hits, mostly from the late 1970s and early ’80s. “We’ve made it as authentic to the original band and sound as we could,” keyboardist Simon Kendall told the Now. “Ted does an uncanny job of singing the material and he’s a lot of fun on stage. Nobody can replace Doug, of course.... We’re happy when fans tell us how much they enjoy themselves.” Surprisingly, says Kendall, a number of fans aren’t aware that Bennett died seven years ago. The current band wrestled with using the name Doug & The Slugs (another option was Slugs Without Doug), but ultimately used the original handle as a tribute to their friend and former bandmate. In an online tribute to Bennett, Kendall describes Bennett as a maverick frontman who challenged himself and those around

Doug & the Slugs are booked to play Sunday, May 22 at the rodeo. him during his 27 years with the band. “Our recent re-launch of Doug & the Slugs has given me new appreciation for my old leader and frequent roommate,” Kendall writes. “I marvel at his courage as a performer, the power and craft in his lyrics and his individuality as a singer. It’s rare that a day goes by without me thinking of him — sometimes laughing, sometimes cursing, sometimes wonderingly, always appreciating the legacy he left us all.” Other concerts at the rodeo include performances by returnees Appaloosa and Ken McCoy. Looks like the rodeo’s Thursday night kickoff concert isn’t happening this year. For info, visit cloverdalerodeo.com.

Big talent on Central City stage

The latest BC Junior Talent Search kicked off last Saturday afternoon at Central City Shopping Centre and, wow, many of these kids can really sing. I was there with the difficult task of judging the 46 contestants, along with local musicians Jim Black, Dan Hare and Steve Danielsen, while emcee Kim Rose kept things light and fun. Each of the kids, some as young as seven years of age, sang a cappella for a minute or so — no back tracks or instruments allowed. Talk about acts of bravery

WORRY-FREE FAMILY VACATIONS

A LITTLE EXTRA THOUGHT AND PREPARATION CAN MAKE A FAMILY VACATION ALMOST AS MUCH FUN FOR THE PARENTS AS IT WILL BE FOR THE KIDS.

Jonathan Moore 2011

Cancun and Cozumel will appeal mostly to the older teen and twentysometing crowd with wonderful beaches and water activities surronded by a fairly u urban environment. Playa del Carmen and the Mayan Riviera have t theme parks and activities that will appeal to y younger and older travellers alike.

C

hoices abound for families and all-inclusive resorts are offering more and more special services for those traveling with children and babies. The most popular family vacation spots are Disneyland, Hawaii, Mexico and the Caribbean. These days many resorts offer special activities for kids and offer child-minding services. As well, some resorts cater specifically to kids and families with special themed events.

Family Vacation Tips

Direct flights are a parent’s best friend, as are prearranged transfers at the destination airport. If your family has kids six and under, limit your first vacation to shorter flights. Leave the longer flights for teens or tweens. Let each child pack their own small carry-on bag (with supervision), and include a favorite toy or cuddly and a few items to entertain themselves on the plane.

Puerto Vallarta

Los Cabos

Cancun and the Mayan Riviera

Mexico’s Caribbean side offers endless vacation opportunities in a truly unique environment. You and your family can swim and snorkel in underground rivers; splash at eco-adventure parks; explore magnificent Maya ruins, sunbathe on white-sand beaches, enjoy endless shopping, and discover some the the world’s best snorkeling and scuba diving. Both Cancun and The Riviera Maya, offer a range of all-inclusive family-friendly resorts.

Disneyland Resort – a sprawling 500-acre resort destination in Anaheim, California features two renowned theme parks, three beautiful hotels, exciting entertainment, great dining and retail fun of the Downtown Disney District.

Renowned as “The Happiest Place on Earth,” Disneyland features more than 65 adventures and attractions, and some of the most quintessential Disney experiences including Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion, Jungle Cruise; it’s a Small World, the Matterhorn and the Indiana Jones Adventure. Disney’s California Adventure theme park is the home of Soarin’ Over California - a breathtaking h virtual hang-gliding tour over the state’s scenic wonv ders. The park also has enough rollers coasters and thrilling drops to keep even the most jaded teenagers t enthralled.

Hawaii

Puerto Vallarta is a fantastic destination where you can lay back and enjoy the sunshine while your kids get involved in the numerous activities or spend the whole day playing on the beaches or in the sparkling pools. The town offers a wide variety of all-inclusive resorts for virtually every budget. Look for hotels that offer an exclusive beach, multiple swimming pools, a kid’s pool, a spa, daily sports activities, arts programs, tournaments, tennis, basketball courts, access to horseback riding, surfing and scuba diving lessons.

Some 620,000 men died during the Julie American Civil War, CRAWFORD as soldiers slaughtered fellow countrymen, or men died of the cold, disease and gangrene, and horrific drug-free amputations. But this is a Robert Redford film, and you’ll see none of that. In the director’s typically understated methodology, there are no pyrotechnics, no slow-motion bayonettings. The Conspirator leads off on the battlefield, sure, but after the shots have already been fired and men have fallen. Surviving the carnage is Capt. Frederick Aiken (James McAvoy), whose homecoming celebration is interrupted by the news that President Lincoln has been shot by the actor John Wilkes Booth (Toby Kebbell), whilst attempts to murder Lincoln’s two possible successors — VicePresident Andrew Johnson and Secretary of State William H. Seward — take place elsewhere in the city. These events transpire mainly through newspaper headlines, which spool through Booth’s crime, the capture of his accomplices, and his fate. Meanwhile, Senator Johnson (Tom Wilkinson) assigns Aiken, a rookie lawyer, with defending one of Lincoln’s eight alleged assassins. A Unionist and war hero, Aiken has already made up his mind that they’re all guilty, and like the rest of Washington, he wants them hanged sooner rather than later. The twist? His client is a woman, Mary Surratt

Director Robert Redford (left) and James McAvoy on the set of The Conspirator, set during the American Civil War. (Robin Wright), who owned the boardinghouse where Booth and his cohorts planned the assassination. If found guilty, she would be the first woman sentenced to death in the U.S. Mary’s trial is propaganda for impending Northern victory: Lee has surrendered but the war is not yet officially won. It is a military trial, with resolutely anti-Confederate men passing judgment. As Mary quietly proclaims her innocence, Aiken’s resolve starts to fray. Mary’s son John (Johnny Simmons) is a co-accused, but is the only man to have escaped the manhunt. Secretary Stanton, head of the War Department (Kevin Kline, very good) is blunt: “Someone must be held accountable. I’ll settle for either one,” he says, referring to Mary or her absent son. Aiken relaxes his prejudices as it becomes clear that his client will never get a fair trial. Sen. Johnson simply mumbles

something about justice being silent in times of war, and bolts out of town at crunch time. It’s a coming-of-age movie of sorts, as Aiken’s judicial cherry is broken and he realizes the imperfection of the law. Real-time events are captured in tea-stained frames, evoking the period, and the action is typically lit by sunlight or the gloom of oil lamps. There is a scene or two too many about how we need to hold the constitution sacred, but overall the film’s narrative power remains intact. Things are much more suspenseful if you don’t know the outcome, but history buffs familiar with the full story of Lincoln’s assassination will be likewise riveted. Redford doesn’t feel the need to liven up the history in order to render a compelling story. The tale of government manipulation is a relatable one, even some 150 years later.

❚ WHAT’S ON ❚THE ARTS

Hats off to FVGSS and Lucille Lewis

3:30 p.m. Thursday, May 12 East Concourse, Departures Level International Terminal Building Vancouver International Airport Richmond, BC A live stream of this meeting will be available at www.yvr.ca The 2010 Annual Report is available at www.yvr.ca. Please submit advance questions to Community_Relations@yvr.ca by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May 10, 2011. Vancouver Airport Authority is a community-based, not-for-profit organization that operates Vancouver International Airport (YVR).

What can one royal wedding do but inspire a fascination for the feathery headgear known as fascinators and make us into Mad Hatters? I love it. Hats are in — the Melanie more elaborate the betMINTY ter. Ditch the duckbill baseball caps and don the derby. You can still get use out of your wedding hat when attending any of these great upcoming events. Fraser Valley Gilbert & Sullivan Society’s production of The Gondoliers opens Wednesday, May 11 at Surrey Arts Centre’s studio theatre and runs to Saturday, May 21. You are invited to wear your wedding hat to the first two performances (May 11-12); people wearing a hat will receive an entry for a draw to have a donation made in their name to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Royal Wedding Charity fund. Check out the fund at www.royalweddingcharityfund.org and

ArtsScene

The Board of Directors of Vancouver Airport Authority announces that the Annual Public Meeting will be held to present the Airport Authority’s 2010 Annual Report and financial statements. The meeting is scheduled for:

get tickets for The Gondoliers at 604-5015566, online at http://tickets.surrey.ca. I already have my tickets, but they are for gala night on the 13th. Roger Hussen (cast member, tap dance buddy, publicist) said it was OK to wear a hat anyway. And I will. Surrey Symphony Society celebrates its 35th season with a very special concert at Bell Performing Arts Centre on Saturday, May 14 at 7 p.m. The theme is dance music and features the Youth Orchestra playing bits from Tchaikovsky’s “Swan Lake.” The Intermediate Strings perform Respighi’s joyous “Bergamasca,” based on an ancient Italian dance, while the Junior Strings play a lyric section from Stravinsky’s ballet, “The Firebird.” These concerts are always special, but even more so this time. Lucille Lewis is retiring and a reception after the concert will celebrate her contribution to the society. Lucille was founding president of the organization in 1976, and conductor for the multi award-winning Youth Orchestra since 1982.

❚ WHAT’S ON

/A29

Willowbrook Chrysler

❚MINTY ON THE ARTS

Flamenco event on Mother’s Day  continued from page 28 It seems as though Mrs. Lewis has taken up tennis and is planning to wave a racket instead of a baton. I guess everyone is allowed to retire sometime. Congratulations on a job well done and may the society continue to prosper. I will be at this concert, too, and no doubt I have another hat that will suit this occasion. Tickets are $17.50 for adults, $10.50 students, seniors and alumni (price includes the reception). Call Surrey Symphony Society at 604-572-9225. It would be fantastic if lots of former members of the orchestras could be in attendance for this concert. It’s a big theatre. Or maybe there is a budding musician in your life who might like to belong to the orchestra. On Saturday, May 28, the society will hold auditions for the 2011/2012 year. String players interested in joining any of the three orchestras, and brass/woodwind/percussion players interested in the Youth Orchestra, LUCILLE LEWIS are encouraged to contact the society to get an appointment time. To book an audition, email inquiries@surreyyouthorchestra.org. Let’s see where that takes you after 35 years. I have yet another perfect little flower and feather fascinator to wear on Mother’s Day. If you have yet to make plans for an outing on this day, you might enjoy the Mother’s Day Concert with Flamenco del Mar. It’s on Sunday, May 8 at Ocean Park Community Hall (1577 128th St., South Surrey) from 3 to 5 p.m.; tickets are only $13. Artistic director and dancer Jill Tunbridge will be joined with dancers from Flamenco del Mar Spanish Dance Studio and guest artists Gerardo Alcala and Jafelin Heltin. The event includes coffee, tea and dessert. For tickets and information, call Jill at 604-542-2096 or email: flamencotickets@hotmail.com. Tickets are also available at Christopher’s Gift Gallery, 12894 16th Ave., Surrey. Finally, my hat’s off to Surrey Little Theatre for providing summer entertainment for youth. SLT is holding auditions for the upcoming summer youth production, Unusual Suspects. There are 14 spots (but 28 roles, so be prepared to do double duty) and, as this is a youth production, all roles are for those 12 to 18 years of age, with the exception of the character of Mr. Piddles, the high school principal. Auditions will be held at Surrey Little Theatre (7027 184th St., one block north of Fraser Highway on 184th Street) on Sunday, May 15 and Monday, May 16 at 6 p.m. And I guess that for these auditions, it would be OK to wear your duckbill baseball cap — just to get into character. melminty@telus.net

❚ WHAT’S ON ❚NEW ON DVD/BLU-RAY

Tsunami brings together three tales the dead. He doesn’t do that anymore. It takes some time for these three stories to coalesce (which might irk impatient viewers). But we are so transfixed by individual performances (Marcus’ mother) and tender moments (George and his cooking partner) that it hardly matters how long the tales take to converge. Eastwood takes his time with this lovely rumination on what happens after the lights go out. Special features on the bluray disc include a 90-minute look at Eastwood’s acting/directing career, and a selection of mini featurettes on everything from the visual effects (a marvel), casting, linguistics (much of the movie is in French), locations and more. — Julie Crawford

Hereafter is receiving as much hype for its ill-fated release date as it is for its storyline and star pedigree. Directed by Clint Eastwood, the film opens with a shocking tsunami scene that we can appreciate for its veracity now that we’ve seen the real thing in Japan. A French woman (Cecile de France) survives the disaster, but emerges with the nagging feeling that she’s experienced more than a concussion. Meanwhile, in London twin boys (Frankie and George McLaren) experience tragedy of their own and, stateside, George (Matt Damon) fights off pleas from strangers to contact

Free up the fun with your RV. One of the many fun things about spring and summer is being able to use your recreational vehicle. No matter what kind of RV you have - a trailer, camper or motor home - here are some BCAA tips for a worry-free RV season. Review the declared value annually: Unlike standard private passenger vehicles, the insured value of RVs is based on their declared value. This is the actual cash value at the time you are insuring it. What to consider when determining the value:

The ultimate chance to learn a new game

Sports

Calling all disc jockeys Michael BOOTH — the Surrey Ultimate Sports Editor League wants you. The sport that specializes in high intensity mellowness is back for a third season on the south shore of the Fraser River and the club will mark the occasion with what it is billing as “Ultimate Day in Surrey” on Sunday. The term “day” is a bit of a reach as the event will run from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Sunday evening on the turf fields of South Surrey Athletic Park (14600 20th Ave.). “It’s really a good opportunity for new people to get oriented to the sport,” said Surrey Ultimate League co-ordinator Matthew Stuart. “We have a few clinicians coming out who are from Vancouver and play on Furious George, which is probably the best team in Canada right now. They’ll be teaching skills from basic throwing and catching to more advanced things like offences and defences as well as the strategies of the sport.” The sport traces its roots to the late 1960s when high school students in the U.S. blended the laid back activity of Frisbee toss with the strategy of football. In its early ears the game was identified with the counterculture community before exploding on college campuses as a fun-filled recreational pursuit. By 2008 there were almost 5 million people in the U.S. playing ultimate. Tired of travelling to Vancouver to play his game of choice, Stuart started the Surrey group three years ago and was amazed at the reception he received. The first year saw 60 people participating, a number that doubled in 2010. This summer Stuart anticipates more than 250 people will play with the Surrey disc group. “It’s growing fast,” he said. “The popularity of the sport is definitely increasing and now that we’re more established, we’re getting new people who used to commute from Surrey into Vancouver to play in that league. Those people are now staying and playing in Surrey and that’s huge for us.” The experienced ultimate players who will be on hand Sunday will be offering lessons in everything from the basics of the game for newcomers to more advanced strategy sessions for players who know their way around the pitch. “We always like to say, ‘Come try it once and you’ll be hooked,’” Stuart said. “That’s actually the way it usually works, too. It offers a relaxed atmosphere while playing a fun sport. Everyone is right into it and everyone is teaching one another too so that helps bring people back.” The Surrey club offers two nights of activity every week.

❚ SPORTS ❚B.C. PREMIER BASEBALL LEAGUE

Chiefs ousted in semifinals of Abby tourney The Fraser Michael Valley Chiefs BOOTH Sports Editor started quickly only to fall two games short of defending their title at the Abbotsford Cardinals invitational tournament for B.C. Premier Baseball League teams last weekend. After posting three straight wins to start the tourney, the Chiefs dropped their final roundrobin match and were then eliminated with a 6-0 loss to the Langley Blaze in

Sunday’s semifinal round. “We’re not disappointed in how we did,” said Fraser Valley general manager Paul Hargreaves. “We were the defending champs so we weren’t going to go down easy. I was happy with our overall performance and, other than the Langley game, it was a good weekend. Even with the semifinal loss, most teams in this league are going to come out on the short end of it against Langley.” Ty Walker struck out 15

in 7-0 complete game win over Abbotsford to open the tournament Friday. Caleb Lefebvre kept the momentum going by fanning 10 Nanaimo Pirates later in the day as the Chiefs prevailed 10-2. On Saturday morning the Chiefs ran their record to 3-0 with a narrow 3-2 decision over the Victoria Mariners. Dylan Rehmke earned the win on the bump for Fraser Valley. With a semifinal berth already sewn up, the Chiefs emptied their bench

for their fourth outing and lost 5-2 to Vancouver. The Chiefs tried to rebound in the semifinal round against powerhouse Langley but were unable to regain their earlier momentum and ended the tourney on the wrong end of a 6-0 score. “We can’t complain because we had our chances,” Hargreaves said. “Every inning we had a guy on base but we just couldn’t get the back-toback hits we needed to score some runs.

have a very explosive lineup and they can score runs pretty fast. “They got four runs in the first inning so we were trying to come from behind almost from the beginning.” The Chiefs return to league play Sunday when they host a doubleheader with Langley at Whalley Ballpark.

without a win to show for their efforts. The Tritons lost games to Langley, North Shore, Victoria and Parksville to finish out of the playoff picture. “We had some injuries so we were basically playing with half a junior lineup and half a senior lineup,” said Tritons coach Russ Smithson. “It was pretty ugly; the boys didn’t play very well. I told the boys right afterward that we had to shake it off and put it behind us. “We had a good conditioning practise at 8:45 Sunday morning and they got the message.” The Tritons looked much better Tuesday evening when they edged Abbotsford 2-1 in league play. Adam Shumka tossed five innings to earn the win for White Rock. Josh Larsen helped out on both sides of the plate, hitting a two-run double in the third inning and then coming in to pitch the final two innings in relief. The Tritons play a doubleheader Saturday on the North Shore before returning home to South Surrey Athletic Park Sunday for a twin bill against Parksville beginning at 11 a.m. ❚ The North Delta Blue Jays passed on the Abby tournament but managed to play a double header against the Coquitlam Reds Sunday at Mackie Park. The Jays dropped the first game 8-2 but bounced back to win the second contest 7-2. “The first game was kind of frustrating, but the kids picked it up in the second game,” said North Delta general manager Bob Burkmar. “I was super proud of the way they played in the second game because they came back from being down 2-0 in the first inning to win. They played as team and Doug Strohan pitched an incredible game for us. He kept us in the game until we started scoring. The guys came out of that game feeling pretty good about themselves.” North Delta hosts Nanaimo Saturday and North Shore Sunday at Mackie Park. First pitch in both doubleheaders is scheduled for noon.

❚ SPORTS ❚WOMEN’S SOCCER

Offensive outburst marks start to title defence Surrey Michael United made BOOTH an early state- Sports Editor ment that the seven-time provincial women’s soccer champions are not going to go down without a fight. Surrey began their pursuit of an unprecedented eighth consecutive Provincial Cup crown by thrashing league rival Coquitlam Metro Ford Xtreme 6-0 in quarter-final round action Sunday. The game marked Surrey’s first real competition since winning the Metro Women’s Soccer

League premier cup final on March 27. Despite the month of relative inactivity, there was little rust to be found on United’s game as Surrey dominated proceedings from the outset. “It was a concerted effort for the entire game and it was a very convincing performance,” said Surrey United executive director Martin Foden. “I don’t think we showed much rustiness or lack of conditioning at all. “We kept busy over the break with a couple of exhibition matches and it

didn’t look like we hadn’t played a competitive game for such a long period of time.” Surrey created several solid scoring chances early in the contest before Katie Thorlakson was pulled down in the box in the 18th minute. Kim McMullin converted the ensuing penalty kick to put Surrey up 1-0. The score didn’t stay that way for long as less than a minute later, Chelsey Hennesson tallied off her own rebound to put Coquitlam down by a pair.

Surrey added one more in the 39th minute by Thorlakson to give Surrey a comfortable 3-0 advantage at the break. The offensive onslaught continued in the second half

with Kate Qually scoring a pair of goals and Hennesson netting her second of the morning.

“Those two goals one minute apart really sent a definitive message about how we were going to play,” Foden said. “I wasn’t surprised because at our last training

session, I could see we had a bunch of players who were tired of training without playing

a meaningful game. They were ready to play a game that mattered and that was very evident when the game began Sunday.” United will travel to Vancouver Island Sunday to take on Prospect Lake in semifinal action. Foden admitted the Island squad is somewhat of a mystery to his club, but top-seeded Surrey remains confident in their abilities. “We don’t know an awful lot about them and, in some ways, that’s a good thing. When you don’t know your opponent, the best approach is to just focus on playing your game because that should be enough to get us through to the final. “All we know is they were in the top four on the Island and they must be a decent team to make it this far.”

By definition, emergencies happen when we don’t expect them, and often when families are not together. Suddenly, you need to think about your kids at school or elderly parents across town. If phones don’t work, or some neighbourhoods aren’t accessible, what will you do? Having a family emergency plan will save time and make real situations less stressful.

Get a Head Start in Accounting and Payroll Administration

A career in accounting and payroll is one of the most versatile positions in business. Nearly every single company needs well-trained accounting and payroll professionals in their finance departments, so you can take your career aspirations to large corporations, private consulting firms, small businesses, or even non-profit organizations. One particular academic program that has taken the spotlight in the accounting and payroll field is Vancouver Career College’s Accounting and Payroll Administrator program. This diploma program includes the Canadian Payroll Association’s (CPA) Payroll Compliance Practitioner (PCP) certification, which is recognized in Canada as the standard of excellence for payroll training. PCP certification allows graduates to become professional members of the CPA and offers professional development through numerous networking, continuing education and conferences. In April, the CPA recognized three Vancouver Career College graduates with the top accolades for the Payroll Compliance Practitioner (PCP) certification. Alumni Gurjeet Dhillon, Loren Park and Jaffer Ali Hirani earned the gold, silver and bronze awards respectively for the CPA’s Pacific Region. All three graduates completed the Accounting and Payroll Administrator program at Vancouver Career College’s Surrey Campus.

“Vancouver Career College graduates have earned one or two of the top awards in the CPA’s Pacific Region for the last four years,” says Accounting and Payroll program instructor Joe Peter. “We take great pride in our grads’ successes and congratulate them on their achievements.” In a continuously evolving business world, proficiency in computer

programs and accounting software combined with certification from the CPA are valuable assets for a strong future in the accounting and payroll field. Vancouver Career College offers the Accounting and Payroll Administrator program at its Surrey Campus along with several other locations in British Columbia.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Your energy and charisma step up a notch Sunday – conquer problems, seek solutions. Chase money Monday/Tuesday – and chase friends, contacts, information Wednesday/Thursday – luck accompanies you in both endeavours! Be home, pay attention to the needs of children, parents Friday/Saturday. Take a rest after a lucky, active week. Wishes can come true this week and next, especially in career and social arenas. But realize your career is changing deeply (and in many cases suddenly) over the next eight years: in-depth research, investment, power plays, secrets play a bigger role. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Chase ambitions, and the people who can grant them. You’ll be tested, but you’ll win an “A!” Rest Sunday, plan and prepare – but be careful with fire, hot irons and ethical/ legal temptations. Your energy and charisma soar Monday/Tuesday – get out and impress people, especially bosses, VIPs, parents and authorities. Chase money (e.g., ask for a pay raise, seek new clients) Wednesday/Thursday. These are four successful, satisfying days – by Friday/Saturday you’ll be ready to socialize, dream, wish and enjoy your optimism – though it will be a sober optimism. Until 2019, love succeeds! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: A gentle, compassionate understanding flows over you. You might fall in love. Actually, someone is likely more impressed with you than vice-versa, Wednesday/Thursday. Still, you might fall in love. Something is working powerfully to change your life – it could be sex, could be finances, a move, a secret, an urge – Charlie Sheen is a Virgo, and a hero, because he is embodying the Virgo urge right now. Behind-scenes actions, government and administrative chores succeed Monday/Tuesday. Charge forth and chase a major goal Wednesday/ Thursday! Money needs care Friday/Saturday.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Continue to chase money. This week is relatively smooth, unhurried. Sunday holds a few frustrations if you wander afield after outside goals or adventure. Instead, stay home, garden, repair, or soak up nature. Romance, creative surges, pleasure and beauty surge Monday/Tuesday – you’re a winner! Tackle chores Wednesday/Thursday, buy machinery, seek health cures, employment or employees – you’ll succeed. Relationships face the deep, slow pulling apart you’ve noticed in recent years, but Saturday shows the cure. The problem is your ambition: the cure is another’s – support it. Taurus April 20-May 20: Your energy, effectiveness and charisma rise nicely! Don’t expect everything, as you’re in the trough that comes just before the big luck wave swells. That trough lasts to June 4 – five more weeks. Then 53 weeks of great, life-changing luck begin! Don’t waste your present energy: you can solve problems that would usually stymie you, can accomplish unusual feats. Focus your abilities on solving whatever has held you back. The main thing: to clear the way for big, lucky things June onward. Home’s sweet, good Monday/Tuesday. Romance, creativity midweek. Work, Friday. A good week! Gemini May 21-June 20: Continue to rest, plan, pray, meditate. Be charitable, deal with government agencies, institutions. Wishes can still come true, but consider this: wishes that lead to freedom are much more viable than those that lead to depth, darkness, lust, security, investment. Soon, you will get a chance for these deeper things (June 2011June 2012) but over the entire rest of this decade, these deeper things will “disagree” with ethics, law, friendship, lighter laughter – and the lighter will win. This also means light romance will conquer deep romance. Buy nothing Sunday. Success, all week!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Most trends/occurrences are split into two streams: open relationships, and the more private, behind-scenes interactions. E.g., you are meeting challenging but lucky people or bright, obvious opportunities – these can quickly turn to intimacy, mutual financial funding, investment, detective work, or lifestyle commitments. Look for friendship on the surface, bonding underneath. Soon, this “deeper side” will increase – and by June onward, for a year, it will grow very lucky. But for now, the luck resides in the meeting, the seeing, relocation, pursuing new horizons and opportunities. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: This month doesn’t exactly offer you the prize with a flourish of easy luck, but it does give you a real preview of the luck to come, June 2011to June 2012. The prize involves a relationship. It could be an opportunity in business, new life horizons, love/marriage, fame, contract negotiations. It will arise because you impress or please someone, because you’re diplomatic and focused on another’s needs and desires. (You’re an expert at that.) This week, study your ethics Sunday: right, wrong? Your ambitions meet luck Monday/Tuesday; your hopes meet “a friend” Wednesday/Thursday! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Lots of work faces you – you might as well plod through. Recent romantic, pleasurable, creative or child-oriented ventures remain active, lucky. The year ahead (starting in a week or two) will expand your duties, so pack in some last-minute pleasure and relaxation now, while you can. You might, in the six weeks ahead, stumble upon a creative work situation – grab it. A co-worker romance might develop. Cautious Sunday: traps exist. Wisdom, gentle love flow Monday/Tuesday. Be ambitious Wednesday/ Thursday – success accompanies you! Your mood’s happier than events, late week.

May 8 - 14, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: You’re riding a minor winning streak, but it’s good practice for the “big wave” that’s coming June 2011 through June 2012. That time will bring “benefits with responsibilities” in romance, creative projects, speculative ventures, pleasure, vacation, and children’s talents. These very things fill May, so enjoy life, relax and pursue love! A relationship gives you friction Sunday. Life’s depths, lust, finances, meet with luck Monday/Tuesday. Gentle love, understanding fill Wednesday/Thursday. You feel ambitious Friday/Saturday, but use a light touch if others react unexpectedly. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The focus lies on home, family, recuperation, nature, garden, soul, stomach, security, real estate, retirement, endings and beginnings. This period isn’t ultra-important at the moment, but it will become the source of your luck from June 2011 to June 2012. So keep your eyes open, your thoughts ticking. Chores might frustrate Sunday: proceed cautiously, especially around power tools. Relationships might be competitive Monday/ Tuesday, but they’re also lucky, even loving, so plunge in! Investments, debt, sex, intimate commitments, lifestyle changes proceed well Wednesday/Thursday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Romance has a few snags Sunday – go slow. Tackle chores or buy machinery,tools Monday/Tuesday.If unemployed,look for work, especially Tuesday afternoon. A whole grabbag of opportunities faces you Wednesday/Thursday. Go forth, seek, be curious, ask. Be diplomatic, too. Relationships surprise, reward. The news might disappoint in financial, health and/or sexual areas Friday/Saturday. Investments made Friday won’t work; those made Saturday might. Generally, this is a light, busy, smooth and satisfying week. Money’s still lucky in an income way, but not for long – act now! timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014

Dave Redinger Mechanics have car problems too. For years I have lived with the fear that my wife’s car will break down. Money was tight when we started off and we drove old cars. Heaven help me if that sucker ever let her down. I would never hear the end of it. Come to think of it neither did the poor tow truck drivers I sent to rescue her. I noticed early in my career, how break downs are always the mechanic’s fault. I didn’t design it, build it or sell it. It wasn’t me, who didn’t have the time to service it, and it wasn’t me that broke the thing in the first place. Cars do wear out. So, how’s that my fault?

By the way I bought the wife a new car. Now she has the dealer to blame. When I stop at a red light with the transmission in drive and my foot on the brake, the car vibrates and shakes. There are times when the engine stalls. I recently had a “tune-up” to see if it would help. The car does run better but it did not help with this problem mentioned above. There are times when it vibrates only slightly but most of the time, it vibrates quite a bit, enough to see the hood shaking. Do you know what the problem is and what is causing it? It sounds as if the engine is not running on all cylinders. The problem could be as simple as a plug that is fouled or more serious such as a sticking valve. Have a dynamic compression test performed. This test cuts out individual cylinders and measures the load they are sharing. The results will lead you to the next step. Dave

In reality, most failures after repairs are conducted are related to faulty parts. New parts do fail. When purchasing car repairs, don’t be shy, ask what the warranty policy is and how repairs are handled if there is a failure. Most shops have very liberal warranty policies, however some don’t. One more thing “Why do most customers ask for a discount?” I tried asking for a discount at a local big box store, they threw me out! http://doctorh.mechanicnet.com
