Mt. Timothy staff Chrissy Ogden keeps the chairlift operating safety and smoothly at the top of the mountain Monday for the crowds of skiers and boarders taking advantage of the B.C.'s first Family Day holiday. At Mt. Timothy children aged 6 to 12 could ski for free, while adults enjoyed a reduced rate too. In Williams Lake, families were also able to take in the pool or skating rink for free at Cariboo Memorial Complex.

Police search for suspect in sexual assault Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor Williams Lake RCMP are asking for help from the public in finding a male suspect accused of sexually assaulting

a woman in her home after she accepted a ride from the stranger. The incident occurred more than a week ago on the afternoon of Monday, Feb. 4

when the suspect apparently offered the woman a ride to her home at about 2:30 p.m., say police, who issued a news release on the matter yesterday.

Columneetza junior secondary? Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor SD 27 trustees have proven once again they are not afraid of controversy. The Board passed a motion last week that will see the Columneetza Senior Secondary become the campus for predominantly grades 7-9 and the current Williams Lake Secondary School as the predominantly grades 10-12 campus. Last month, the Board announced

sweeping changes to Williams Lake’s schools including creating a one school, two campus model from what is currently two grades 8-12 campuses. The Board is reported to have made the decision in a closed meeting Feb. 5 against the recommendation of SD 27 staff. “Now that this decision has been made, we are looking forward to an inclusive process in reshaping the new secondary school in

CRD explores options Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor The Cariboo Regional District was meeting with its fringe fire protection residents last night to discuss survey results, explore options and define next steps as tensions seem to only be heating up in their dispute with the City. The CRD issued a news release recently stating that more 60 percent of survey respondents indicated they wanted the CRD to continue with legal action against the City to ensure the original fire agreement would be enforced for the fiveyear renewable term as originally presented in the recent referendum, while 25 percent voted to start a separate CRD run fire department. Not a surprising outcome for those present at the last public CRD meeting, where rural residents vented their anger at the City. The CRD said it also agreed to enter mediation, albeit reluctantly, with the City upon its request. “If the CRD refuses this request, the City

has the ability to take steps to force mediation ... the CRD does not condone this sort of approach and will not waste tax-payer’s money by forcing the City to take unnecessary steps to compel mediation.” In the meantime, the City released a question and answer document of their own airing their side of the story. That release prompted a further release from the CRD. “The Cariboo Regional District (CRD) is in receipt of the recently released City of Williams Lake Questions and Answers document regarding Williams Lake fringe fire protection services ... in addition to addressing questions raised in the City of Williams Lake document, CRD elected officials and staff will also advise the public of the proposed next steps based on the Special Board meeting which took place on Monday, Feb. 4.” Information on fringe fire protection is available at both the City and CRD websites.

Williams Lake,” stated Mark Thiessen, superintendent of schools. “It has been a couple of decades since we have seen these types of substantial changes, and we have a real opportunity to look at how we continue to provide an education to our students.” It is still unclear how many teacher, principal and support staff positions will be lost due to the restructuring. The Board of Trustees started working on their long term plan last fall, citing budget shortfalls and declining enrollment as the catalyst for change.

Suspect wanted in sexual assault Continued from Page 1 up truck, 1990s model, in good condition, primarily white in colour with a dark blue 5"-6" strip down the side and two dream catchers hanging from the rear view mirror. The suspect is described as a light complexioned man between

City announces DeGagne as new CAO
 


The City announced this week the hiring of a new chief administrative officer. According to the City, Don DeGagne is the winner of the City’s top job and is set to start March 1. DeGage been CAO for five different B.C. communities over the last 28 years. Most

recently he has served as CAO for the District of Summerland, a role he held from 2005 to Jan. 2012. Degage has also worked for the City of Revelstoke, the City of Trail, the District of Mackenzie, the City of Prince George, and the Village of Keremeos. “We are extremely

pleased to have Don join our team and encourage everyone to help us welcome the DeGagne family to our city,” says Mayor Cook. "I am looking forward to the opportunity of becoming part of the community and assisting the Mayor, Council and Staff in their efforts to provide quality services

and otherwise meet the diverse needs of the citizens of the City of Williams Lake,” DeGagne says. The City said more than 90 candidates applied for the job. The City’s last CAO, Brian Carruthers, announced his resignation in September, 2012, accepting a position as CAO for the

Regional District of the Central Kootney. Since November General Manager of Planning and Operations Geoff Goodall, has served as Acting CAO. DeGagne should have enough on his plate right off the start, between the on going dispute with the CRD and a looming labour strike.

Conservation officer Jeff Tyre volunteers his time to help families with the CDC ice fishing at Chimney Lake recently.

New officer for C.O. Service

After years on Vancouver Island, Conservation Officer Jeff Tyre happily traded in his rubber boots for winter wear with a new posting to Williams Lake. “We love it, absolutely love it,” said Tyre, who recently got out to meet the public, volunteering his time for the CDC’s annual ice fishing family fun day on Chimney Lake. “It’s nice to see the sun.” Tyre began his new posting in October, moving his wife Joanna and two young children Hunter, 5, and Logan, 3. This is Tyre’s sixth year as a conservation officer and says he was drawn to the Cariboo Chilcotin for the challenge it offers with predator control. Tyre was born and raised in Port MacNeil and was first posted to Port Alberni. Tyre said he likes being apart of the community, volunteering like he did last month, and looks forward to working in all the seasons in the Cariboo Chilcotin.

City should make a deal The City hired a new Chief Administrative Officer to begin work March 1 and, it will be interesting to see whether he can mend fences between City Council and the Cariboo Regional District. In recent months it would seem the City has really painted themselves into a corner in the ongoing saga of providing fringe fire protection. And it’s clear from the news releases issued from both sides last week that tensions between the two local governments are only getting worse. Last fall, the City agreed in writing to a deal to offer fire protection for fringe residents at a set rate

for the next five years with an option to renew for another five. Rural residents even agreed to this deal in a November referendum. As many will recall, just before Christmas the City reneged on this deal. After some time of silence, the City said deliberations were “difficult and inconclusive” and the decision to back away from the deal were not unanimous. The funny thing about being elected into power is this: you really don’t have to have any qualifications (or business smarts) to get the job. Clearly these councillors who have started this whole fight have

not thought through the impact this will have on our City. Not only are the rural residents and CRD angry, their trust in the City is broken. Even worse, is that the City stands to lose a tax that they cannot afford to lose and will have to spend even more money defending their actions in mediation or court. This doesn’t sound like good business. What kind of outcome can councillors expect now? The difference between what the two agreed upon and the new amounts the City is suggesting is really rather insignificant - a small problem in a big outfit as ranchers would say. If these City

Councillors don’t change their mind, the City could lose more than a half million dollars in revenue annually. That money goes a long way towards paying the more than $2 Million spent annually in fire hall expenses (more than double the expenses of neighbouring Quesnel, by the way). Let’s face it, we’re not exactly in an economic boom. How do these councillors propose to replace this money once the CRD walks off and builds their own fire hall? Rather than nitpicking and in fighting, council should stand up united and make some good business decisions for the sake of the City.

Putting family first What an inspiration it was to see all the active families out enjoying B.C.’s first Family Day Monday. Whether families chose to play hockey, visit extended family or participate in one of Canada’s many great winter activities, families are all better off for

the day. At Mt. Timothy, many of the families were there Monday because of the reduced rates and the day off. The same goes for the activities made available at Cariboo Memorial Complex, where families were treated to free skating

and swimming. Families are strapped for time and money these days and it’s nice to see the government supporting initiatives that actually relieve some of the pressures facing parents. Not everyone is going to agree that it’s

wise to spend government money subsidizing activities but then ask yourself this; what should be our priority? Maybe putting our families first is the first step toward getting some balance back in our over-worked, over-committed North American lifestyles.

Aubree Silver, 4, of Williams Lake gets a ski lesson from Mt. Timothy Ski instructor Jason Mueller on Monday, B.C.'s first Family Day holiday.

Settling in for another quiet winter in cottage country It is pretty quiet up here at Little Pressy Lake. The big news of the day is an unfamiliar truck drove down our road. A road that leads to nowhere. “Who do you suppose that is?” asks Carmen. I reply, “I don’t know.” “What’s he doing way over here?” “I don’t Know!” (Doesn’t take much to get us up off the couch.) Now that winter has officially arrived and the cottagers have all left, it is time to reflect on the past year and what happened at our domain. To start with;

I was planning on going on a diet over summer, but I forgot. As I am sitting here drinking my morning decaf, which Carmen calls phony coffee, I remembered that at the

beginning of summer I vowed to get rid of my pot belly. Now well into winter and somehow it’s still there. Maybe I need to bring in an expert or consultant. Especially someone from government, as I am sure there is some form I can fill out that will solve this diet dilemma. Anyway, I’m sure it’s just water retention. It is claimed that our body requires up to two litres of water daily, equal to eight glasses. Well I’m lucky to get through half a glass. So something must be wrong

with this medical fact, because I should have dehydrated to mummification by now. Another challenge we had to face was Big Bessie. Carmen’s name given to a big red cow who along with her calf, kept finding their way into our fenced enclosure and close-cropped the grass. Carmen went after her with a garden rake but to no avail as the cow and calf would just circle around her. What did the trick was our little four pound dog Mickey, who gallantly chased the half ton of beef on the hoof out the

yard nipping at their heels. Unfortunately, once a cow is onto a good thing, they just keep coming back. A regular feature of cows, accordingly to one of the local cowboys. Since they left cow paddies all over the place, I thought of putting up a sign out front. ‘Free Manure - You Pick!” But then it dawned on me, that this was just what I needed for the garden, so now I have my own manure pile. Something that one cannot do without. Speaking of the garden, although we managed to grow some

produce such as strawberries, peas and potatoes, we were not so successful, this our first year at it in Zone 2, including the fact, that we are 3300 feet up with just 77 frost free days. I carefully cultivated tomatoes, cukes and zukes in the house and planted them at six inches high in early June, only to have a frost in July that wiped them all out. I know, I know, I was forewarned, got to have a greenhouse. Well that’s next on my agenda, when I’m in the mood and have the inclina-

tion to build one. So now we into our second winter. The good news is, the snow has covered up all the doggy do. (I am sure Carmen won’t mine dealing with it come spring.) We got the wood in, cleaned out the gutters, put the garden to bed and put up the bird feeder. Looks like I’m turning into an old Cariboo hand here. I’ve come to realize, by the way, that keeping a playful attitude in whatever I do suits my nature, after all, it is essential to stay lighthearted.

Changing Columneetza to a junior high a mistake Editor: The work that our Trustees have done in the past few months has been difficult and I am sure has taken a great deal of time from their personal lives. However, having taught at both Williams Lake Secondary and Columneetza Secondary, I am very confused as to the reasons why the Board of Trustees decided to make Columneetza a 7-9 school and Williams Lake Secondary a 10-12 school. A consideration of the two very different physical spaces and facilities at the schools makes it seem clear that Columneetza should be the senior high school. The first of these reasons is the presence of the state of the art, carpentry, automotive and metalwork shops at Columneetza. Large numbers of students use these shops and the presence of an appren-

ticeship partnership with Thompson Rivers University means that proximity between the facilities is important. A complicating factor is bussing Williams Lake senior students to take shop courses at CSS. First, bussing has proven to be an abysmal failure for students in the past; these students do not want to bus back and forth, do not want to spend, especially double blocks that extend over lunch, with a much younger grade level and do not have a sense of identity to the building. It is almost certain that enrolment in shop courses would plummet, and this occurs at a time when economists and immigration experts clearly state that the trades are in desperate need of workers and pay these workers top wages. Bussing between the schools is also expen-

sive and is costly to the environment. Another problem with a comparison of the facilities at the two schools is the number of science labs; Williams Lake Secondary has approximately three labs and Columneetza has six science labs. This is a

critical consideration: Grades 10-12 are the three years the government sets out for the graduation program. A shortage of lab space could seriously impact these three critical years. I think the trustees should visit both of the schools and look at the

facilities before moving ahead with their plans. Once put in effect, a plan that did not carefully consider logistics could create scheduling and bussing issues that would be very difficult to reverse. Gaye Burton-Coe

We are writing in response to recent news that the City of Williams Lake has applied for “Interested Party� status with the New Prosperity Mine Review Panel. It came as a surprise to see the City’s submission given our coalition’s recent letter calling on them to honour the contents of their September 2012 Resolution, which indicated only conditional support for the mine proposal. The Resolution clearly states that the City's support for the Project is contingent on the environmental approvals being obtained and First Nations being

New Chief Administrative Officer Begins Work March 1st Mayor Kerry Cook and the Council of the City of Williams Lake are pleased to announce that Don DeGagne has been hired as Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) and will start in his role on March 1,

adequately consulted. In fact, neither of these is certain and there is strong evidence that the revised mine plan is actually worse than the previously rejected proposal. We, along with many residents of the City and region, attended the packed City Council meeting in support of the Tsilhqot’in National Government and their direct request to the City to refrain from advocating for the mine while the review is underway. Finding the City's submission on the Panel’s website, without consultation with residents of the City and after the clear groundswell of public opposition at the

shelley@caribooadvisor.com shelley@caribooadvisor.com shelley@caribooadvisor.com

December 4th event, is extremely disappointing. The City has been clear in its enthusiasm for ‘New Prosperity’, as clear as it was when it was just plain old ‘Prosperity.’ We recall with dismay that the federal rejection of the project resulted in a mayoral flight to Ottawa to lobby politicians otherwise. This recent application to the Panel only continues to demonstrate the City's complete disregard for the people that live in the territories of the proposed mine site, as well as its disregard for the many city residents who also value the area for its recreational, wilderness and

cultural importance. However, back then there was no Resolution. The 2012 Resolution and its conditions signify that the City should not be supporting the mine until all the facts are in, the Panel process is complete, its report is issued, and in a world where First Nations rights are respected, there is free, prior and informed consent from affected communities. So far, we have not seen any of these conditions met. In December, the company was rebuffed by the Panel with a 77-page deficiency statement pointing out serious problems with its studies.

Five thoughtful gifts that don’t require much thought Valentine's Day is prime season for florists, with floral sales capturing 40 percent of holiday dollar volume, according to data collected by IPSOSInsight FloralTrends Consumer Tracking Study. While flowers -- particularly mixed flower and red rose bouquets -- may comprise the leading gifts for romantic gifters, many others are looking to buck the flowers-and-chocolate trend this year and offer something more unique. On the heels of the holiday giving season, most gift-givers realize how difficult it can be finding the "perfect" gift for a recipient. That gift may be even more difficult to find when the intention is to convey love and affection. But Valentine's Day givers can look to a number of gifts that are very thoughtful but needn't take more than a little forethought. * Gift card: You may be thinking a gift card doesn't sound that thoughtful. However, when paired with a listing of gift items, it's easy to illustrate the thought that went into the gift. It may make sense to simply purchase one of those interesting items, but this way you're giving the recipient the choice of what he or she really wants to select. * Something engraved or monogrammed:A

simple scarf turns into something more special when it includes monogrammed initials or a special saying. The same can be said for anything from a picture frame to candle holders. Taking the time to have something monogrammed or engraved imparts thoughtfulness into the gift.

Every year, couples get together on Valentine's Day to express their affection for one another. This February 14, consider the following interesting facts and figures when celebrating Valentine's Day. * According to research from Hallmark, more than half of all Valentine's Day cards are purchased within six days prior the holiday. That's especially interesting as Hallmark research also indicates more than half of the United States population celebrates the day by purchasing a greeting card. * There are more single men than single women. For every 100 single women in their 20's, there are 119 single men in the same age group. * Dating service establishments continue to be popular means for meeting a prospective soulmate. Nearly 1,000 dating services, which include online dating Web sites, exist and generate hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue annually.

* Pet accessories: People view their pets as members of the family and often as small children (when small children are not yet present). Especially during the dating stage, providing an adorable gift for his or her pet may be seen as a heartfelt gesture. Be sure to pick up a little something for the pet parent as well, though. * Hobby gifts: Recognizing the interests of a loved one is a clear sign that you're in tune with what he or she enjoys to do. If you have an avid reader on your hands, a new e-reader or some e-books may be ideal. Sports fans could appreciate tickets to the next home game of their favorite team. Someone who dabbles in culinary creations may delight over a gift basket full of top-ofthe-line cooking utensils. * A spending spree: Take your Valentine to his or her favorite store and encourage him or her to pick out a few favorite items.

Members of the Cariboo Driving and Draft Horse Club turn out in full force Sunday to offer their annual Valentine’s Day Sleigh Rides Sunday. Members include Randy Walter, Eileen ALberton, Gwen Mulvahill, their horse Brandy, Roy Mulvahill, Wilford Anderson, their horse Bess, Betty Anderson, Curt Tugnum, Sandy Tugnum, Karen Sepkowski, Kim Sepkowski, Sandy Weir, Bud Weird, Black Jack with owner Becky Telfer, and Club President Merv Furlong and his wife Shirley Furlong.

Romance is in the air at Valentine's Ride Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor Under beautiful sunny blue skies, the Cariboo Driving and Draft Horse Club gave between 400-500 people sleigh rides during their annual Valentine’s Ride on Anderson Road. Club president Merv Furlong said club members offered four, milelong runs per hour for about four hours on

Sunday with four sleighs and a cutter. And though it was meant to offer others a romantic afternoon, it was really the members themselves who were celebrating the true meaning of Valentine’s Day. Roy and Gwen Mulvahill came in from their Chezacut area ranch with a sleigh and their horse Brandy, as

well as Bess, Wilfred and Betty Anderson’s horse that the couple were working with up until Bess’ public debut Sunday. The Mulvahills were all smiles as they said they celebrated 49 years of marriage last Friday. Club President Merv Furlong and his wife

Shirley were also quick to point out their lifelong love, celebrating 50 years of marriage this year. Karen and Kim Sepkowski, who have hosted the sleigh rides at their picturesque hobby farm on Anderson Road for the last six years, are celebrating 39 years of

marriage this year too. And if all those long marriages aren’t enough, it was evident by the atmosphere following the rides that club members enjoy long and loyal friendships as well, with Wilfred Anderson and Shirley Furlong being friends since they were kids at Rose Lake.

The BC Services Card. Your CareCard, and more.

Roy and Gwen Mulvahill of Diamond Four Ranch celebrate their own 49th wedding anniversary by giving sleigh rides to others on the Valentine Rides Sunday.

One card. Many services. The new BC Services Card is part of government’s plan to modernize BC’s health care system. It replaces your CareCard, can be combined with your driver’s licence, and also acts as your photo ID. It’s more convenient and more secure, with enhanced features to protect your personal information. And getting yours is easy. Starting February 15, 2013, and for the next five years, you can simply enrol when renewing your driver’s licence. And even if you don’t drive, you can enrol at the nearest location where driver’s licences are issued. To learn more visit: BCServicesCard.ca

Wilfred Anderson and Shirley Furlong enjoy an old friendship, joking around that they were the only two students in grades 1, 2 and 3 at Rose Lake back in the day.

Powderkings' first Yank's Peak Challenge a great success

Rick Seibert photos

Brock Hoyer and Powderkings club member Taina Seibert at the first ever Yank's Peak Challenge Sunday.

The first annual Yanks Peak Challenge, organized by Rick Seibert of the Williams Lake Powder Kings, was a small event, but never the less very entertaining. "You had to be there!" said Seibert. “We had great freestyling on Tune Hill and the Avalanche Hill. Kory Ilnicki and Brock Hoyer brought their motorbikes with track systems on them and added a twist to the snowmobile event.” Competitors Kory Ilnicki on his KX450 with a Snow Horse track kit, Brock Hoyer on his

Snowmobilers take a break while participating in the first annual Yank's Peak Challenge Sunday organized by the Williams Lake Powderkings Snowmobile Club.

Blue Fins take part in 2013 SwimBC Championships As many as 400 swimmers, including some Williams Lake competitors, converged on the Surrey Sports and Leisure Centre February 8-10, for the 2013 SwimBC Short Course AA Championships. According to Blue Fins Head Coach Chad Webb, this is always one of the most exciting meets of the year, as most of the swimmers competing seek to attain their first AAA times to qualify for AAA Championships. The Williams Lake Blue Fins swam up a storm in the 2013 Provincial Trials Championships, with one new qualifier for the AAA Provincial Championships joining the two other previously qualified swimmers. Kara Zavits destroyed the competition in the 100 backstroke and achieved her AAA time by over a second and beating her competition by the same amount. Kara placed second in the 200 Backstroke and rounded her medal collection with a bronze as she led out the Senior girls 200 Medley relay.

Ashley Beauchamp did managed to take almost five seconds off her 200 breast stroke time and qualified for AAA's but unfortunately ages up to the older age group right before Provincials making her ineligible for the meet. With an impressive amount of lifetime bests the club showed some great heart this weekend as they had 18 final swims and two relays. Webb was very pleased with the results as the club took another step forward towards some top end results. “Every Williams Lake swimmer showed a lot determination in getting into 18 finals and swimming very well as they had to repeat fantastic morning swims. The first day was incredible as almost every swim was a life time best and that set the tone of the meet and the expectations for the swimmers.” Top 8 Results – Tracey Beauchamp – 200 IM 5th, 200 breast -8th, Ashley Beauchamp -200 IM 4th, 200 Breast-4th, 100

iN THEATRES iDENTiTY THiEF Unlimited funds have allowed Diana (Melissa McCarthy) to live it up on the outskirts of Miami, where the queen of retail buys whatever strikes her fancy. There’s only one glitch: The ID she’s using to finance these sprees reads “Sandy Bigelow Patterson” ... and it belongs to an accounts rep (Jason Bateman) who lives halfway across the U.S. With only one week to hunt down the con artist before his world implodes, the real Sandy Bigelow Patterson heads south to confront the woman with an all-access pass to his life. And as he attempts to bribe, coax and wrangle her the 2,000 miles to Denver, one easy target will discover just how tough it is to get your name back.

HOrOscOpe Aries, a change is coming and right now it is difficult to tell if it will end up being a positive. Brace for what lies ahead regardless of the outcome. Taurus, saying goodbye to someone you love will be difficult, but somehow you will manage it. Make a plan to visit this person soon to take the edge off the feelings. Gemini, steer clear of stores because you simply do not have the finances to purchase anything extravagant right now. Stick to your budget.

Have patience with someone you deal with on a daily basis, Cancer. This person has a lot on his or her plate and could use some wiggle room in the next few days.

A meal for your sweetheart or friend Valentine’s Day is tomorrow and if you want to do something nice for your sweetheart, perhaps preparing a nice meal with a little wine and candlelight would be a real treat and a nice way to say ‘your special.’ Some quiet music and flowers might also enhance the dinner. Of course it does not mean that Valentine’s Day is just for sweethearts, but for friends and everyone. So whether you are cooking for your sweetheart or friend I think a nice meal can say ‘Happy Valentine’s as well as anything! Having a tasty meal

can be cooked by him, her or both. I often use wine for cooking and for deglazing pans, pots or roasters when finished cooking. Valentine Day Chicken..Coq au Vin One 3 to 4 pound chicken cut into piec-

es Four slices of thick bacon cut into small pieces Eight ounces of sliced mushrooms…shitake or portabella will work One-half cup chopped green onion Three cloves of garlic crushed and minced Two tbsp flour 1 tbsp butter 1 piece of cut up celery Two cups of fruit red wine… I like Burgundy or Merlot with this dish Two tbsp fresh chopped parsley One-half tsp dried thyme crushed Salt and pepper to taste. Season chicken with

salt and pepper. In a large pan, cook bacon until crisp then set aside. To the bacon drippings in skillet add butter then brown the chicken slowly until all sides are golden brown. In the same pan, add the mushrooms and celery, sauté until tender then put in the green onions. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of the fat then blend in the flour then gradually add the wine. Cook, stirring constantly, until sauce is thickened and bubbly. Add parsley and thyme. Cover and simmer 30 minutes, or until chicken is tender and juices run clear. Serve with a garnish or

parsley, if desired. This recipe serves four and can also be used with only thighs and legs as in the original recipe. Some nice small potatoes roasted would be nice in the sauce with the chicken. A little salad would round out this meal ... oops, don’t forget to finish the meal with something light that will clean your palate...perhaps a little Champagne over your favorite ice cream! May your day tomorrow be filled with happiness and laughter and friends. Happy Valentine Day. Bye for now and Goood Cooking

Leo, colleagues are questioning whether or not you’re the right person for the tasks at hand. They underestimate your abilities. Show them differently this week.

Virgo, look at a situation through someone else’s eyes and it could shed new light on the situation you’re in. Things may not be as bad as you thought. Libra, you are looking for an adventure and it’s just around the corner. Take Cancer on this trip of a lifetime when you do depart. You will want the company.

Scorpio, there’s much to be done, but the only place to begin is at the beginning. Begin with one task and move on from there. Soon the to-do list will be finished.

Sagittarius, it’s easy to make assumptions when you don’t have all of the facts. But this can easily get you into trouble. Verify the information first.

Capricorn, you should be happy this week, but all you feel like doing is moping around. This somber mood can be transformed with a visit from a friend. Aquarius, although it doesn’t seem like things are getting accomplished, there are really many items getting finished that may be behind the scenes. A night out at the movies could be just what you need to unwind, Pisces. Make it a friendly get-together instead of romantic night out.
