Williams Lake man loses his life in highway accident Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor Longtime Cariboo resident Carl Rosk was the man killed in a headon collision on Highway 97 Friday morning, said the BC Coroners Service.

Rosk, 86, was driving northbound about 35 kilometres south of 150 Mile near Maze Lake Road when the incident occurred at approximately 11 a.m. According to the RCMP, initial investigation revealed that a south-

bound 28-year-old female driver of a 2004 Dodge Ram lost control and veered into the northbound lane, striking Rosk’s 2000 Ford F-150 truck. The BC Coroners Service stated that Mr. Rosk was transported by

ambulance to hospital in Williams Lake, but succumbed to injuries sustained in the crash. The female driver was treated at hospital and released. Road conditions were noted to be poor at the time.

The Greatest Gift promotion

Angie Mindus photo

Captain Randy Kadonaga of the Salvation Army and Dave Polack General Manager of Lake City Ford encourages the community to take part in the dealership's The Greatest Gift promotion to help the local food bank. For a food or cash donation, anyone can put their name in a draw for a dream vacation and many other prizes at Lakecity Ford.

Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor Lake City Ford's general manager Dave Polack is hoping a little prize incentive will help put their annual food drive donations over the top this year. “Our goal is to generate as much community support for the food bank as possible,” said Polack, who is running The Greatest Gift campaign. He said The Greatest Gift offers participants a chance to win gift baskets and a grand prize draw for a dream family

vacation worth $4,000, a weekend for four at The Hills or a new flatscreen TV in return for dropping off a food donation at their Oliver Street location. “Christmas is a time when we all think about what we can do for someone else,” Polack said. “The Salvation Army does a lot of good work and they need our help.” Caption Randy Kadonaga of the Salvation Army said he is very appreciative of Lake City Ford's food drive, and says it couldn't come at a better time. This year 350 Christmas hampers will be handed out to those in need, while 250 children are registered to

receive toys. Kadonaga said Christmas is hard on those with a limited income, particularly those who live as singles. “They struggle the most,” Kadonaga said, noting the average income assistance for singles in Williams Lake is just over $600 per month – which must cover all living expenses such as rent, heat, light and clothing. Kadonaga said once those expenses are covered, singles usually have about $20 per month for food. “Try living on $600 a month – even if you didn't have to pay rent. It's pretty hard for a single person.” Kadonaga said places like the Salvation Army

and other church groups fill the need throughout the year, offering breakfasts, lunches, and weekend meals in the park. He said they help about 2,000 people throughout the year. The best food items to donate to the food drive include pasta, pasta sauce, meal-in-a-can and soups. Kadonaga said the Salvation Army also gladly accepts fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as frozen meats to use in their soup kitchen. The Greatest Gift campaign runs at Lake City Ford until Saturday, Dec. 22 when at 3 p.m. the prizes will be drawn. Last year the campaign raised more than $2,000 and two truckloads of food.

Berry Merry Chrstmas If it's Christmas spirit you're looking for, head down to Ken Berry's house near the end of Country Club Boulevard this holiday season and check out his beautiful Christmas decorations. Berry decorates his house every year and is collecting money for local children's charities with his display by

having folks drop off donations in his decorated birdhouse. As of December 10, Berry has raised $235.95 at the birdhouse and another $277 from golfballs, making the total $513 to date. Help Ken reach his goal by donating to this great cause and add some Christmas cheer to you life.

MLA Cariboo Chilcotin NDP candidate Charlie Wyse, longtime NDP representative and former NDP MLA David Zirnhelt and newly announced NDP hopeful Duncan Barnett talk politics over coffee at the Bean Counter yesterday where Barnett announced his intention to seek the NDP nomination for Cariboo North. Barnett is currently the president of the regional Cariboo Cattlemen's Association, and a former CRD director. He says he brings to the table a background in business in his role as rancher and an understanding of the need to be business-forward in today's economy. If nominated in January, Barnett will run against BC Liberal Coralee Oakes and Independent Cariboo North MLA Bob Simpson.

Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor Residents have a chance to do their part for the environment this Sunday by participating in the 45th annual Christmas Bird Count. The count, hosted by the Williams Lake Field Naturalist’s, was first held in the city in 1969, and will be one of 415 counts across Canada involving over 12,000 volunteers December 16. Phil Ranson, longtime count organizer and bird enthusiast, said he expects to have 35 people in the field on Sunday as well as numerous bird feeder watchers throughout the count area which is a 24-km diameter centred in downtown. The circle takes in from Wildwood to Sugarcane and Dog Creek Road out to Flett Road; from Meldrum Creek Road on the west side of the Fraser River to beyond Fox Mountain to the east. Of special interest this year will be the chance to see a snowy owl, which has been appearing in the Prince George and Quesnel areas in record numbers. So far this winter Ranson said upwards of 30 have been seen in the Prince George area and five in Quesnel. “They really are in unprecidented numbers around here this year,” Ranson said of

light of my career,” a blushing Jim Fraser said Friday, after being given the award by Cariboo Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett at a luncheon held at the Senior's Activity Centre. “But, you know, you don't do these things alone.” Fraser has dedicated the last 50 years of his life working in many facets of the community, such as the Recreation Commission, the Municipal Council, the Cariboo Memorial Hospital Board and, of course, as the Mayor of Williams Lake. Fraser also served as the director of the Hough Memorial Cancer Society for 20 years, helping to raise more than $1 million dollars for critical cancer detection equipment.

with the crowd about Fraser's tenacity in politics. Fraser versus Fraser In the early days of Williams Lake, members of the Board of Trade and Village Commissioners often waged war with Victoria, and with Ottawa, if they felt the village was being short-changed by either senior government. On a number of occasions the Board of Trade embarrassed the provincial government into cooperation by sending stories to the Vancouver and Victoria newspapers. In later years municipal governors tended to take a friend-

lier approach, petitioning and lobbying for favours. One exception to this was Mayor Jim Fraser. Jim had served as a councillor for six years before being elected mayor of Williams Lake in 1971. During Mayor Fraser's time in office, Alex Fraser, who had served for 20 years as Mayor of Quesnel, and was the first Chair of the Cariboo Regional District, was the Cariboo MLA. For two of those years, Alex was Minister of Highways. Known affectionately as the King of the Cariboo, Alex was both popular in his constituency and a powerful member of

Jim Fraser is all smiles with his wife of 55 years, Ruth, as he accepts a cake and a medal from MLA Donna Barnett during a luncheon in his honour at the Senior's Activity Centre Friday. the Social Credit government. Although Jim shared Alex's political philosophy, it didn't stop the Mayor from taking on the MLA when the occasion warranted. One battle was over finding suitable winter accommodation for the town's street people, nicknamed the Troopers. For years, every winter, at least one person perished on the streets of Williams Lake during cold spells. By the mid-1970s the plight of the homeless had the attention of the townspeople as well as that of the provincial media. The street people were the sub-

ject of BCTV camera crews and CBC radio talk show. There was considerable pressure from townspeople to do something to prevent further deaths. There were numerous suggestions; some felt the empty liquor store would make an appropriate shelter, but they all required help from the province. None was forthcoming. Mayor Fraser kicked up enough of a fuss that finally MLA Fraser, who was Minister of Highway at the time, came up with some highway construction trailers. The bunkhouse trailers came complete with beds and bathrooms, and they were set up by the Cariboo Friendship Centre for one winter. Mackenzie Avenue was another well publicized issue between the two. The Ministry of Highways was responsible for the maintenance and upgrading of Mackenzie, but the logging truck traffic pounded the pavement to bits and the highways crews couldn't, or wouldn't, cope with it. After trying unsuccessfully to get Victoria to do something about what he called "undisputedly the worst road in Williams Lake" Mayor Fraser threatened to change the name from Mackenzie to the "Alex Fraser Highway " and he put up sign designating it as such. This ploy didn't work but there was never any reason to suppose that Williams Lake suffered in any way from its outspoken Mayor.

Mill closure to impact the budget Submitted by the City of Williams Lake After the recent announcement that Tolko Industries would be closing the Creekside mill, the City wishes to clarify the implications to the City budget. As a result of an application for a closure allowance for the Creekside operation by Tolko to the BC Assessment Authority, the City’s industrial assessment base will be affected in 2013. The City estimates a loss of $3.5

million in assessment. It is important to note that this is not an automatic loss of taxation revenue to the City, but a loss in assessment value, which may need to be collected among the remaining assessment classes, or from an increase in the mill rate to the major industrial class. Council will consider tax rates and other items when it deliberates the 2013 budget and fiveyear financial plan beginning in January. “Council wants to acknowl-

edge that this closure has been a serious blow to Tolko, its workers, and the community,” says Mayor Kerry Cook. “We lost more than 100 positions when the Creekside operation closed three years ago, and another 22 people lost their jobs when Tolko decided not to re-open. “It is also important to remember the positive news we’ve had this year – re-investment and West Fraser’s announcement of a new multimillion dollar planer mill.

Council passes resolutions to tackle crime City Council brought forward this week a number of items passed during an in-camera session to address crime and safety in the city. The resolutions are: • The Executive Committee and staff will work with the RCMP in a working committee to develop a harm
reduction strategy

for weapons of choice used in crimes, such as machetes and bear spray, and the working committee will bring a report back to Council. 
 • Council directed staff to limit vehicular access to the Dairy Fields
• Council will request to hold meetings with provincial and Crown Counsels to discuss

their concerns with the prolific offender program.
 • Council will encourage Community Policing to reinstate the Court Watch program.
 • Council will request meetings with provincial Minister of Justice Shirley Bond and federal Minister of Justice
Rob Nicholson, with Mayor Kerry Cook

and Inspector Warren Brown to bring attention to the community’s
concerns around crime and prolific offenders.

Clearwater hit by tragedy A tragic story struck the community of Clearwater, B.C. this past weekend. Local school teachers Skye Buck and his pregnant wife Courtney passed away after their vehicle slid off the highway 17 kilometres South of Clearwater and sunk into the North Thompson River. The young couple, both 30, was on their way home from Kelowna. I had the pleasure of attending the

University College of the Cariboo in Kamloops with Skye back in 2003-04. That year he was captain of the UCC Sun Demons basketball team and was named Canadian Collegiate athlete of the year and he did all this standing only 5’10” tall. I talked to him briefly a few times, as student-athletes we would cross paths on occasion in the gym and weight-room. He was one of the nicest

guys you’ll ever meet without the slightest hint of arrogance despite his athletic prowess. I again had the pleasure of running into him a couple years ago while officiating a high school basketball tournament in Hope, B.C. while he coached Kamloops Christian School. Stories like this remind us how cruel and fragile life can be and the risks we take driving on our winter

roads. We never expect these horrific events to happen to somebody we know and with Skye being a school teacher, an athlete, from a small town and starting a young family all similar to myself, it’s really gut-wrenching. Thoughts and prayers go out to Skye and Courtney’s families and friends. Skye was a man of faith and I know there will be special place set aside for him in heaven.

School Board forges ahead The School Board is forging ahead with its consultation process regarding the Initial Options Report, despite a request from Kwaleen Elementary School representatives to extend the process past the scheduled date of January 22. The school, along with other schools and some Parent Advisory Councils have complained that the School Board did not consult properly before setting out their Initial Options Report which aims to close three elementary schools and reconfigure the high schools in the lakecity. At their Nov. 27 meeting, trustees defeated a motion to extend the consultation process.

In turn, Kwaleen representatives have fought back this week by announcing their plan to file a complaint with the Office of the Ombudsperson of B.C. in relation to the consultation process. Kwaleen and Russet Bluff representatives threaten that if the school district closes their school, they can pursue a judicial review. The School Board was meeting last night, and Kwaleen wasn’t on the agenda, but you can bet the trustees will be talking about this latest development. What was on the agenda for last night, was whether trustees will extend the schools of choice deadline from Feb. 15 to Feb 22. for this year due to the

Initial Options Report. Kinda funny considering the board is proposing to close most elementary schools of choice, and whatever is left will be so full to capacity choice will be a distant memory in the Williams Lake area. On December 18th, the Board is hosting another meeting to discuss the Initial Options Report, and again on January 15, and again on January 22 where it is expected the board will announce its decision. Though the process is difficult, one can only have admiration for the trustees’ resolve to see this process through. The dedication of hours they have put into what must often be a thankless job is commendable.

Stepping onto dangerous ground . . . and exploring religion Ernie Engemoen, a former editor of The Cariboo Advisor, once told me there are three areas readers are especially interested in. As two of those topics, health and family, have been prodded at some length here, perhaps it is time to reach cautiously toward the third - religion. But there is risk in doing so. While many of our laws have religious underpinnings, invoking the ‘R’ word can chill a conversation, or invite the slash of an editor’s pen. When I was twelve and living in South Africa, a story was reported on the news that deeply shaped my

Living out Loud with Rita Corbett thinking. A father had asked his son to do a small chore, which the boy did not complete. In a drunken stupor, the father wrapped the boy’s hands in grass, soaked the grass in kerosene, and then lit the application with a match. The boy lost his hands - all for not completing a

chore. Rather than ‘soapboxing’ any particular view, or getting lost in the touchy-feely of what is often called spirituality, I hope to offer a question, and leave you to consider the possible answers. Could I get permission from my generous readers to bypass, for now, the question “Is there a god?” There are so many belief systems, and so many gods those systems advise us to worship, that I’m just going to assume, (with apologies to my atheist friends), that there is something or someone out there. My apology to believers will follow shortly.

Of course, no matter what god or gods believers choose, it seems power is always involved. No one would revere someone or something weaker or more helpless than himself or herself! But, going further, what if that power isn’t nice, or is downright nasty? An article on CNN further piqued my interest in the subject. http://www.cnn. com/2009/US/04/30/ religion.torture. Happily, the survey was done on Americans, not Canadians, but it states, “The more often Americans go to church, the more likely they are to support the torture of suspected terrorists. . .”

What??? I thought people with religious roots were supposed to be nice, and try to be good, and stuff like that! What’s wrong? Is it okay to be nasty to those I disagree with? Sadly, even in many believers’ views, god is not nice - definitely not! None of us would claim that the earlier, punishing father was a good one. But much of the religious world claims their sovereign being is even worse, burning disobedient children, not for a few minutes, but forever. And if that is true, I guess I don’t really have freedom to choose it’s conform or burn. Should I emulate a god

like that? It’s no wonder violent, prolonged atrocities have occurred in the name of religion - even our western versions. And therefore, no surprise that American church attendance correlates with support of torture! OK, now I’m in trouble with believers, and I apologize there as well. Understandably, millions have declined to take even a glance at divinity because of such a belief. If whatever is out there is powerless, nasty or both, we are truly adrift in a helpless and fearful state. I’d much prefer if the ‘something’ were bigger and better than me -

and nicer, too! Might there be another option that warrants a peek? The final weeks of the year include the holidays of many world religions. During our worship and our celebrations, perhaps the more persistent, more important question isn’t, “Is there a god?” but rather “Is god good?” That question goes deeper than creeds or beliefs, but certainly can’t go much further in a newspaper. The comments after the CNN article are more captivating than the article itself. Yours would interest me even more. LOL@caribooadvisor. com.

Senior sets the record straight Dear Editor On reading the article on November 27, 2012 printed in another media outlet, “Donna Barnett acclaimed by the local Liberals� I find Donna's statement that is was an accomplishment that the Liberals got Deni House open. As I remember it, it was the Liberals under Gordon Campbell that decided it was in the best interests for the residents of Deni House, to close the facility. The residents and their families were devastated by this closure. Before the closure, a bus load of concerned seniors travelled to Kamloops to protest their concerns to the Minister of Health, George Abbott.

Regardless of the petition the Deni House was closed and the residents were moved to Retirement Concepts Senior Village.

Rev Rich returns to the lakecity importance of family and how to make that effort to reconcile relationships,” said Richmond. “Youth that have had their hearts broken through abandonment and other issues need to have hope and know that people love them.” Richmond was raised in a tough Oakland neighbourhood and knows what it’s like to be exposed to things like poverty, prostitution, drugs, and violence. “My dad wasn’t in the house, I was raised by all women and a strong praying grandmother,” said Richmond. “A lot of different things I was exposed to, and of course as a youngster it led me to try things and dip and dap, so I know how tough it can get.” Richmond credits sports for helping him find his calling as a preacher. He excelled at both baseball and basketball going on to play minor-league baseball with a California Angels farm-team in Mesa, Arizona and NCAA Division I Basketball at San Jose State University. “I always played sports, it kind of kept my life in balance and truly gave me an out as far as my time being spent,” said Richmond. “ I really focused on my grades and going to practice, so my development in sports helped me get out of my city and exposed to different cultures and the opportunity to see hope more than my peers.”

Sean Glanville Cariboo Advisor Reverend Terrance Richmond (Rev Rich) of Oakland, California visited Williams Lake last weekend to promote his message of peace and love. Richmond, who spoke at the Limelight Theatre Saturday evening and the Calvary Tabernacle Church on Sunday, is an accomplished minister and musician. He arrived in the Cariboo through his connection with his uncle, Will Hardeman, who moved to the lakecity from Oakland 12 years ago. He currently works as a reverend at the Calvary Christian Center in Sacramento, CA. He has also released two full length albums including The Love Fix in 2010. “My first time in Williams Lake was 12 years ago when I was the best man at my Uncle Willy’s wedding,” said Richmond. “It’s his heart for the First Nations community and his will and my passion for young people across the world that I arrived in Williams Lake with my gift and message of love.” A giant banner was made by Williams Lake youth reading “Living Life on a LoveQuest,” which was hung across the stage at the Limelight Theatre. This motto is one Richmond uses to promote love, hope and reconciliation. “Our message is for people to discover love in many different cultures and preach the

Kangaroos take LLH Tomahawks Sean Glanville Cariboo Advisor The Lac La Hache Tomahawks dropped a close 5-4 decision to the Quesnel Kangaroos Saturday night in the Gold Pan City. Wade Balbirnie scored his second of the game at 17:16 of the third period to cut Quesnel’s lead to 5-4 but Lac La Hache were unable to tie the contest with the extra attacker and the ‘Roos held on for the win. The score-line was a bit flattering for the Tomahawk’s as they were badly out-shot 56-30. Despite picking up the loss, Tomahawks’ netminder Willie Sellars had a great game. He handled more rubber than a Kal Tire worker making 51 saves on 56 shots. Quesnel’s Waylon Heureux scored 3:21 into the match to give the home side a 1-0 lead heading into the first intermission. Balbirnie tied the game 1-1 for Lac La Hache at 3:45 of

the second period on the powerplay. Quesnel answered with a power-play marker of their own at 7:20 from Justin Fulton to take a 2-1 lead. Quesnel would add another from Joel Boyetchko just 28 seconds later at 7:48 to take a 3-1 lead heading into the third period. In the final frame Lac La Hache got one back just 30 ticks in as Ty Moses, a new arrival from the Columbia Valley Thunder of the KIJHL, scored his first goal as a Tomahawk to cut the lead to 3-2. A turning point in the game came at 6:36 of the period with Lac La Hache was on the power-play looking to tie the game 3-3, they gave up a short-handed marker to Levon Johnson restoring Quesnel’s two goal cushion at 4-2. Robin Gilbert responded for Lac La Hache on the powerplay 19 seconds later at 6:55 to again cut the lead to one at 4-3.

Nick Tomassetti found the net at 15:58 to put Quesnel ahead 5-3 and they hung on for the 5-4 win. Attendance for the game was 655. Tomahawk’s players with multi-point games included Balbirnie (2G, 1A) and Drew Rose (2A). Both Balbirnie and Rose are tied for seventh in league scoring with 19 points each.

With the victory Quesnel move just two points back of the reeling Tomahawks in the CIHL East Division but have a game in hand.

Hobbit House offers new juice bar and specialty coffee shop The Hobbit House’s signature wheatgrass slammer -- two ounces of wheatgrass served straight up with an orange slice chaser. Kunka also serves organic smoothies, wholesome snacks and specialty coffees made from Uncle Paul’s organic coffee beans as well as many other

local products. “It was never too far from my mind,” Kunka said of creating a gathering place at her healing centre, which offers many holistic workers in its lower level as well as natural products in its retail store. “There wasn’t a place (in town) where

the product was made from scratch, organic and truly healthy.” Kunka said listening to the needs of her customers has made the store what it is today, and she's excited about the new venture. “It's all just come together.”

Angie Mindus photo

Hobbit House staff Tiffany Simard grinds up some fresh wheatgrass with owner Leanne Kunka. Kunka just opened the juice bar at the store, which is a holistic centre offering retail products as well as various hands-on therapies such as massage, reflexology and homeopathy. Angie Mindus Cariboo Advisor Always evolving to meet the needs of its health-conscious customers, the Hobbit House has expanded its service once again

-- this time opening up a juice bar and coffee house. “It’s been wellreceived,” says owner Leanne Kunka, who set up the 20-plus seating service in her

building on First Ave and had a “soft opening” of the juice bar last Friday. “There are days we can hardly grow the wheatgrass quick enough.”

Yes, that’s right, she said wheatgrass. Kunka grows the superfood from organic winter wheat berries there right in the store and runs it through a hand grinder to make

City reminds drivers to pull over Recent incidents involving emergency vehicles have prompted the Williams Lake Fire Department to remind residents to pull over when an emergency vehicle is approaching with lights and siren on. The British Columbia Motor Vehicle Act, Section 177, states: “On the immediate approach of an emergency vehicle giving an audible signal by bell, siren or exhaust whistle, and showing a visible flashing red light, except when otherwise directed by a peace officer, a driver must yield the right of way, and immediately drive to a position parallel to and as close as possible to the nearest edge or curb of the roadway, clear of an intersection, and stop and remain in that position until the emergency vehicle has passed.” Here’s how to help: • Signal, pull over to the nearest edge of the road on the approach of an emergency vehicle and stop • If at an intersec-

tion, move out of the intersection if it is safe to do so, and then stop at the edge of the road until the emergency vehicle has passed • Check for additional emergency vehi-

cles before pulling back out onto the roadway • Use your rearview mirror(s) frequently to monitor for emergency vehicles approaching from the rear • You may see an

emergency vehicle before you hear it. Be attentive to the flashing lights. It will give you more time to select a safe place to pull over.

An open invitation to the residence of Williams Lake and surrounding areas to share in the celebration of the festive season over dinner.

IN THEATRES THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY 3D Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) must go on a quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was conquered by the dragon Smaug. Unexpectedly approached by the wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen), Bilbo agrees to join a company of dwarves led by legendary warrior Thorin Oakenshield. The journey takes them through treacherous lands swarming with goblins and orcs, deadly wargs and giant spiders, shapeshifters and sorcerers and ultimately leads Baggins to finds a magical gold ring tied to the fate of all Middle-earth. Based on The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. PLAYING FOR KEEPS George (Gerard Butler) once had it all—fame, fortune, a professional soccer career and a beautiful wife (Jessica Biel). But when a knee injury forces him off the field for good, he winds up losing more than just his career. His wife takes their young son and leaves because of George’s selfish and irresponsible behavior and the fallen star is reduced to making sports casting demo tapes in his guest house just to make ends meet. When the opportunity arises to take over coaching their son’s losing soccer team, George takes uses the gig to try and redeem himself. The only problem is, he can’t seem to avoid getting caught up in the messed up lives of his players’ families—like the father (Dennis Quaid) who throws money at him for favors, the wife (Uma Thurman) who manages to make her way into his bed while he’s out, or the mother (Catherine Zeta-Jones) who bribes him into sleeping with her by offering him his dream job. In between trying to stay out of trouble and landing a respectable job with a sports network, George struggles to reconnect with his family, who are already on the brink of losing any faith in him as a father.

Last Week’s Answers

It doesn’t hurt to be ready for that big Christmas dinner, no running around at the last moment to try and buy fresh cranberries or something else needed for the meal. Spending family time around the dinner table is eroding in our society because we all live, work and play in such a hectic manner. So at Christmas we do make more time to spend with the family, relatives, and friends, and lots of that time is spent around a dinner table. It’s time to start thinking about the Christmas dinner…one of the most important

meals of the year…one that usually involves family and friends and one meal we don’t want to mess up. Turkeys, hams, chickens and sometimes nice beef roast are served depending upon your family tradition. Besides the entrée of the usually big turkey, there

are many other foods like yams, salads, tasty gravies and great desserts that go along with the ole bird. There, in my estimation, cannot be a Christmas Dinner without cranberry sauce of some kind. We often think of cranberries only for Thanksgiving and Christmas when we consume turkey.There are many cranberry festivals around North America and there is also a band from Ireland called Cranberries. Cranberries are an excellent source of vitamin C and antioxidants, which may protect against cancer, heart diseases and other

diseases. Here’s a couple of Cranberry recipes you might like to try this Christmas. One-and-one-half cups fresh cranberries Three-quarters cup of white sugar or splenda Three Tbsps of brandy… Preheat oven to 300 degrees Mix cranberries and sugar in a baking dish… Bake for one hour in preheated oven, mixing frequently…Mix in the brandy just before serving (amount for six serving) Six ounces of cran-

berries One half cup white sugar (splenda) One-half cup of orange juice In a medium sized saucepan over medium heat, dissolve the sugar in the orange juice. Stir in the cranberries and cook until the cranberries start to pop (about 10 minutes). Remove from heat and place sauce in a bowl. Cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools. I hope you have a great Christmas dinner with family, and friends. Bye for now and Goood Cooking

FAMOUS BIRTHDAYS

There are too many happy things going on in your life to let any of the negative things bring you down, Libra. Face challenges with a smile, and you’ll sail through. Scorpio, despite firm convictions you cannot change others’ viewpoints all of the time. Don’t be hard on yourself if other people do not see things the same way as you do. Sagittarius, sometimes you may believe there isn’t room for anyone else in the spotlight but you. Don’t let your ego get in the way of friendships. Share the glory.

Capricorn, give an idea that would require some significant changes its due consideration. This can impact both your career and personal life in a positive way.
