Simplest thing is don’t drink and drive: Penner

■ O N D ASHER

Jennifer Feinberg The Progress There’s still a bit of confusion in the minds of the driving public about the status of B.C.’s drunk driving laws, said Chilliwack-Hope MLA Barry Penner. “People need to know that the new penalties were upheld in a recent court ruling, so everyone should be careful if they’re out celebrating,” he warned. There has been “wall-to-wall media coverage” on the topic ever since a B.C. judge struck down provisions of the law that have to do with on-the-spot prohibitions after a motorist fails a breathalyzer test. A court ruling from the B.C. Supreme Court on Nov. 30 said costs and roadside suspensions, when a driver blows over .08, went “too far” without offering an appeal mechanism, said Penner. But people need to know the criminal code charges for driving over the limit are still in effect, he argued. The annual CounterAttack campaign in early December was launched across B.C. just days after the court decision. “The simplest thing is don’t drink and drive,” Penner said. “If you’re worried about getting dinged, it’s simple. Don’t do it.” Why is it important to remind people? Allan Lamb, president of the BCAA Road Safety Foundation said it’s because a significant number of drivers “still get behind the wheel” after they’ve become impaired by alcohol or drugs. “There is an increase in social events at this time of year and a large number of those driving impaired are coming from the company of friends, colleagues and family,” said Lamb.

MP Strahl supports Yale treaty Robert Freeman The Progress The dispute between the Sto:lo and Yale First Nations over a treaty that’s now at the federal government for final ratification can be resolved peacefully, says Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP Mark Strahl. “I hope both sides will take a step back and continue to participate in the process in a peaceful manner,” he said. Last week, leaders of the Sto:lo Nation and Sto:lo Tribal Council put aside their political differences

and joined forces to demonstrate their mutual dissatisfaction with the Yale treaty at a meeting of the First Nations Summit attended by BC Treaty Commissioners. Strahl, who has met with leaders from both sides of the dispute, said he supports the Yale treaty “in principle.” He said there is “unprecedented” language in the treaty that guarantees the Sto:lo “reasonable access” to traditional fishing sites in the Fraser Canyon and to their sacred cultural sites, which are at the centre of the dispute.

“It’s unprecedented that a First Nation negotiated a treaty and then modified it in favour of another group,” he said. “The Yale cannot deny reasonable access to the Sto:lo or to any other group.” Linda Duncan, NDP aboriginal affairs critic, said she has also met with the Sto:lo and Yale leaders, but she wouldn’t give her opinion of the treaty, which hasn’t yet come before MPs in Ottawa. “I’m not going to state any opinion,” she said, “but what’s becoming clear is the government should be

stepping up to the plate to find a neutral mechanism” to resolve the dispute. “The sad thing is it looks like the government has this pattern ... where they just sort of abandon First Nations with overlapping claims,” she said. “This (Yale/Sto:lo dispute) isn’t the only one we’re seeing.” The Sto:lo also dispute Yale’s claim to be a separate and distinct tribal group, and should therefore have no right to make treaty that involves Sto:lo aboriginal rights and title in their traditional territory.

Criminologist seeks BC Conservative nomination in Chilliwack-Hope Robert Freeman The Progress Criminologist and media columnist John Martin announced his bid Tuesday for the BC Conservative nomination in the Chilliwack-Hope byelection. Martin said he has no fear of splitting the conservative vote to allow an NDP victory in the riding. He said the BC Liberals “might have been” the conservative choice in their first term, but since then have swung to the left in policies and leadership. “Christy Clark is a diehard federal Liberal – that’s not a conservative party,” he said. The BC Liberals are “beholden to big business,” he said, while the

NDP is “beholden to big unions.” The BC Conservative Party is the “right-of-centre, commonsense, mainstream option” to those two parties, he said. “We’re the only option that’s not beholden to someone.” Martin also said he doesn’t think voters will be reluctant to cast a ballot for a relatively unknown party like the BC Conservatives. “We’re a re-emerging political party,” he agreed, but party leader John Cummins has “enormous credibility” in the province, which even his fiercest political opponents would acknowledge. “Only a BC Conservative government will get spending under control, reduce taxes and put the interests of British Columbians first,” he said.

“The 90s under the NDP were an economic disaster,” he said. “Nobody is looking forward to that kind of economic carnage.” Martin has been teaching criminology at UFV campuses in Chilliwack and Abbotsford for 25 years, as well as courses for RCMP members at the Pacific Regional Training Centre. He has written opinion columns in several newspapers, including The Province and the Chilliwack Times and appeared as a guest on talk radio shows. He lives in Chilliwack with Margaret, his wife of 20 years. “This is home, and I’m looking forward to getting out and meeting more people in ChilliwackHope,” he said. Former Chilliwack city council-

Family struggles to save home from foreclosure

rfreeman@theprogress.com twitter.com/paperboy2

Chiefs join forces to ‘Fill the rink for the food bank’

Katie Bartel The Progress If having a child with severe muscular dystrophy wasn’t hard enough, a Chilliwack family is now facing foreclosure on their wheelchair accessible home. Alanna and Wes Drews are $35,000 in arrears on their mortgage. If they want to stay in their home, their mortgage must be squared up in full by Jan. 11, a judge ruled in October. “We’ve always owned our own home,” said Alanna. “It’s hard, definitely. You just feel sick to your heart.” It makes it harder too when the family of six requires a wheelchair accessible home for youngest daughter Nikki, who was diagnosed four years ago with an aggressive form of limb girdle muscular dystrophy. A Christmas craft fair fundraiser is being held this Saturday (Dec. 10) from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at White Album Wedding Chapel on Adams Road to support the family. Limb girdle muscular dystrophy is a progressive disease that deteriorates the muscles. For 12-year-old Nikki, who’s not expected to live past her late teens, her muscles are wasting away at an accelerated pace. “Her muscles are dying,” said Alanna. “She has no reflexes, no strength, and she has severe scoliosis.” Within six months of diagnosis, Nikki, who used to play soccer and skip rope with her big sister, required a wheelchair. Their heritage home was retrofitted to meet her needs. A new kitchen was built with lower counters for Nikki to access, as well as a highcountered island so that she could sit with her wheelchair and eat meals with the family.

would damage her small-c conservative credentials in the provincial byelection. No other candidate for the BC Liberal nomination has come forward to date. Dennis Adamson, Fraser Valley Regional District electoral area director for Yale, announced his bid for the NDP nomination back in April. He confirmed his candidacy Wednesday, and said he’s looking forward to winning the NDP nomination – and facing political opponents in the upcoming byelection. “It’s good to have strong candidates to compete against,” he said.

The Chilliwack Chiefs have partnered with the Salvation Army, Save-On-Food group, the Chilliwack Progress and three other media outlets in a bid to help the Chilliwack and District Food Bank. The Wednesday, Dec. 28 BCHL game between the Chiefs and the visiting Prince George Spruce Kings is now ‘Fill the Rink for the Food Bank’ night at We hope Prospera Centre. Tickets to the game have been cut every seat in to $5 (including serthe building vice fees and taxes) for any fan who is full that brings a donation of non-perishable food. night and Chiefs season-ticket holders are invited we deliver to bring a friend for free with a food tons of food donation. for people Workers from Save-On-Foods and who need it PriceSmart Foods will be camped out ~ Glen at the four Prospera Centre entrances, Ringdal boxing up the food for transport to the Food Banks. “We are very conscious of the fact that both the Food Bank and our wallets are depleted right after Christmas,” said Chiefs president Glen Ringdal. “We are trying to make it easy for hockey fans and others to help at this critical time of year. We hope every seat in the building is full that night and we deliver tons of food for people who need it.”

The hallways were widened. The bathroom was expanded to fit a full wheelchair accessible shower. The sitting room on the first floor was also transformed into a bedroom for Nikki, which includes a ceiling lift to get her in and out of bed. As well, the short stairwell down into the sunken living room was recently fitted for a lift, paid for by the Muscular Dystrophy Association, but the installation has been put on hold until the family knows whether or not they’ll be staying in the house. The Drews never thought they’d be in this position. A few years ago, Alanna quit her job as a care aide to attend to her daughter’s full-time needs. At the time, the family was comfortable. Wes had a secure, full-time

job as a welder and fabricator. “For 25 years, it was never slow,” said Alanna. “He’s always been busy with his work.” But when the economy took a nosedive, Wes’ hours got severely cut back. A year and a half ago, he picked up a second job at Save-on-Foods to help make ends meet. It didn’t help. The family scrimped as much as it could, they cashed in their RRSPs, but “once you get behind on one bill, you try to catch up, but then you get behind on another and another, and it just snowballs,” said Alanna. “It got really bad in January or February of this year. We realized we just were not making it.” At the Oct. 11 court hearing, when the judge gave them three

months to pay their mortgage in full, panic set in. More than just eight-and-a-half years of memories, their house is Nikki’s safe haven. “Replacing it is almost impossible,” said Alanna. “Finding one that’s big enough for all us, and is wheelchair accessible, and meets Nikki’s needs, I don’t know if that’s possible. “Everything is so right here.” The I Heart Nikki Christmas Craft Fair is on Saturday, Dec. 10, from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at White Chapel on Adams Road. Funds raised will support the family. So far, $8,631 has been raised.

Parents to present case for early French immersion before board Katie Bartel The Progress Parents in support of early French immersion in Chilliwack want to know the school district’s plans for determining whether or not there is sufficient interest to implement the program. On Dec. 13, at the first public meeting of the new school board, a group of parents will be asking trustees just that. “We need for this to go forward,” said Jessica Becker, who has a three-year-old daughter she wants attending early French immersion. “We need to determine how much interest there is, and identify the barriers so we can overcome them.” On the Parents for Early Immersion in Chilliwack Facebook page, followers were encouraged to attend the Dec. 13 meeting and voice their support of an EFI program during the public participation portion of the meeting.

Chilliwack woman busted at border with Oxycontin in her underwear A 48-year-old Chilliwack woman was busted at the Sumas border crossing Sunday for allegedly trying to smuggle 110 tablets of Oxycontin into the United States. U.S. Customs officers said Judy Veronica Peters was walking across the border and declared her intention

to visit locally when she was selected for a secondary inspection. “During questioning she admitted to concealing pills in her underwear,” U.S. Customs Chief Thomas Shreiber said in a news release. He said a personal search of Peters was conducted and the pills found in her under-

clothing. “Officers removed pills which field-tested positive for the properties of oxycodone,” he said. OxyContin is the brand name of a formula for oxycodone, a narcotic opiate used to relieve pain. In high doses, or combined with alcohol or in per-

sons not tolerant to opiates, oxycodone can cause respiratory or circulatory collapse and death. Peters was immediately taken into custody and turned over to agents from U.S. Immigration and Homeland Security for further investigation.

Local PACs get early gift Three of Chilliwack’s Parent Advisory Councils will be reimbursed by the provincial government for playground equipment recently purchased. The B.C. Education Ministry announced on Wednesday that it will be reimbursing three PACs to a total of $62,500. F.G. Leary elementary’s PAC will receive $7,500; McCammon traditional will receive $25,000; and Tyson elementary will receive $30,000.

If you have an extended medical plan that provides reimbursement for glasses or hearing devices Don’t Delay... Your opportunity for this year’s claims end December 31!

The funding is part of $2.4 million to reimburse PACs throughout the province that have recently purchased playground equipment with funds they raised. Playground grants, worth $20,000, were cut from the provincial budget in 2010, which required PACs to raise the necessary funds if their playgrounds needed replacing. The funds will be distributed to PACs through the school district.

News Round 1 in raw milk battle goes to FHA The Progress The Fraser Health Authority won the first round in its case against distribution of raw milk by a Chilliwack cowshare group in BC Supreme Court on Tuesday. But Gordon Watson, cowshare spokesman, vowed to be his “prickly, cantankerous worst” when the courtroom battle resumes on April 2. “The lawyer for Fraser Health got an order stating that its officers can go onto the farm property at any time, without a search warrant. But so what?” he said in an email to The Progress. “Under the Public Health Act they could have done that anyway, if and when they had good reason.” However, in August the FHA did obtain a search warrant to search the farm on Prairie Central Road to determine if a permanent court injunction issued last year against distribution of raw milk was being obeyed. Following that search, FHA officials applied for a court finding that Watson and the farm’s agister, Michael Schmidt, were in contempt of the injunction. FHA officials have argued that the Public Health Act describes human consumption of milk unpasteurized by a licenced dairy plant is a “health hazard” and the sale of raw milk is banned for that reason.

Watson argued that the cows owned by cowshare members are private property, and that they can do whatever they like with the milk the cows produce. FHA spokesman Roy Thorpe-Dorward said while the contempt hearing is adjourned, the justice also made two orders authorizing health officials to enter

and inspect the premises without notice, and to post the original March, 2010 injunction order in conspicuous places around the farm. Watson also said in his email that he is “on trial” for holding a “political meeting” that he described as a “Raw Milk Information Night” on Oct. 19. But he also claimed

U.S. lawyer is B.C. police watchdog Black Press The B.C. government has hired Denver’s police oversight specialist to head the province’s new Independent Investigations Office. Richard Rosenthal was deputy district attorney in Los Angeles before moving to Portland to establish their independent police office. He then moved to create his current job as independent police monitor for the city and county of Denver. Rosenthal starts setting up the new B.C. office in January, and wants to have it ready to investigate deaths and serious injuries involving police starting in mid2012. The B.C. government committed to a civilian-led agency after a string of incidents involving RCMP and city police forces. The office was recommended by inquiries into the 2007 death

of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski at Vancouver airport, and Frank Paul, who was removed from the Vancouver Police drunk tank in 1998 and left unconscious in an alley. The 2005 gunshot death of Ian Bush at the RCMP detachment in Houston, B.C. was another case that pushed the B.C. government to end the practice of police incidents being investigated by other police forces. The independent office will also bring B.C. RCMP officers under civilian oversight. Asked at a news conference in Vancouver Wednesday if Denver police were happy to see him go, Rosenthal replied that he introduced a rule there that officers who lie to internal affairs investigators are fired. That was a “change in culture,” he said. Rosenthal said he also wants to study cases of deadly force to learn from them, an approach that helped reduce police shoot-

ings in Denver from 12 to 15 a year to four or five. RCMP Assistant Commissioner Fraser MacRae was on hand for the announcement, and said he looks forward to working with Rosenthal’s office. Public Safety Minister Shirley Bond said the office location and budget can now be finalized, as Rosenthal decides how much staff he needs. Rosenthal also plans to visit civilian oversight offices in Alberta and Ontario. Bond said civilian oversight of police is still new to Canada, and B.C. was fortunate to find a candidate who has set up two investigative offices and is willing to take on a third. Initially, the Independent Investigations Office (IIC) will restrict itself to cases of death or serious injury in police incidents. Bond said the mandate could expand after periodic reviews by a legislative committee.

Taxation by stealth The provincial government is busy dropping financial bombshells, and the net effect will mean it is reaching deeper into most British Columbians’ pockets. The most obvious attempt is the announcement that ICBC will seek a rate increase. It says claims are going up, and its financial cushion has been lessened as the province has taken $700 million in dividends from ICBC in the past two years. This situation is eerily familiar to that of BC Hydro. Its rates are going up by about 25 per cent, and while the need for increased capital projects is cited as the reason, the province has also been helping itself to Hydro’s surplus in recent years. The province has every right to raid the piggy banks of these Crown corporations — it is the sole shareholder. However, what it also needs to do is admit that Hydro and ICBC customers are paying higher taxes, because they pay more to those two corporations than necessary. The provincial government frequently brags about B.C.’s low income tax rates. But if income taxes are lower than they should be, and Hydro and ICBC customers have to make up the difference, there needs to be some honesty on that front. The province also has boosted medical service plan premiums in recent years. It is worth pointing out that most other Canadian provinces charge no such fees to their residents, so again lower income tax rates mask the fact that B.C. residents pay additional fees. The provincial government is hypocritical when it says that it wants to put all its policies through a “families first “lens. If that was the case, it wouldn’t be raiding Hydro and ICBC surpluses, and would assess income tax at a realistic rate. ~ Black Press

British Columbia a playground for eco-stunts VICTORIA – If the propaganda flowing over “tar sands” crude shipments across B.C. were oil, the province would be out of deficit by now. U.S.-funded professional environmentalists and their aboriginal partners lined up with the NDP last week to peddle a range of half-truths and falsehoods about proposals to pipe diluted bitumen from Alberta to a new port at Kitimat, where tankers would deliver it to Asian markets. They staged a slick news conference in Vancouver where they claimed to have a seamless wall of aboriginal communities the length of B.C. opposing the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline. A 10-year-old girl in a cedar bark hat warned of devastation to the coastal ecology, providing the kind of emotional visual that appeals to urban television audiences who know and care little about science or resource indus-

tries. This event was co-ordinated with the publication of a report warning of huge risks from piping “tar sands” crude. The report was produced by the Natural Resource Defence Council, the Living Oceans Society and the Pembina Institute. These three obscure organizations are among those identified Tom by independent FLETCHER researcher Vivian Krause on her website, www.fairquestions.typepad.com/rethink_campaigns/. These and other environmental groups have received millions from U.S.-based foundations in recent years. Here’s one of many examples of the money trail that Krause has followed. U.S. tax returns

show the Pembina Institute and a B.C. environmental group were paid $200,000 by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund Inc. in 2006-07 “to prevent the development of a pipeline and tanker port” on the B.C. coast. The same Rockefeller fund has investments in competing pipelines going south. Documenting this huge money spill, Krause concludes that U.S. interests are working to stop Canada from exporting oil to Asia so the U.S. will be the only market available. They dress it up as environmentalism; we fall for it. Not surprisingly, the latest “tar sands” scare report was seized on by the B.C. NDP. “The pipeline goes over mountains, across farmland, over the Fraser and Skeena Rivers and straight through the Great Bear Rainforest to the Pacific, where it will be picked up by supertankers trying to navigate our inland coast-

al waters,” said NDP environment critic Rob Fleming. Fleming parroted the report’s claim that diluted bitumen is more likely to cause corrosion in pipes and tankers. Enbridge issued a statement refuting the study. Its oldest bitumen pipeline went into service in 1979, and “a complete metal loss inspection of this line in 2009 revealed no increased risk or incidence of internal corrosion.” Oh, and the proposed pipeline route doesn’t cross the Fraser River. And claims of a huge increase in greenhouse gases from “tar sands” compared to conventional oil are grossly exaggerated. (The vast majority of emissions from all crude sources come when the refined fuel is burned to truck in your groceries or get you to work.) B.C.’s own Wilderness Committee chimed in, but this ecoshow was organized by the local

branch office of San Franciscobased ForestEthics. Those are the folks who blessed us with the faux-aboriginal name “Great Bear Rainforest.” A similar campaign is underway against expansion of the existing Kinder Morgan pipeline from Edmonton to Burnaby, which brings Alberta oilsands crude to ships heading out under the Lions Gate bridge and winding through the Gulf and San Juan Islands to Asia. Tankers have been loading “tar sands” oil in Burnaby for about six years now, but the enviropropagandists didn’t notice until a couple of years ago. Up until then, Fleming and his colleagues raged about maintaining a “moratorium” on B.C. tanker traffic that never existed.

Mayor called on to end prohibition The pot question is federal, says Chilliwack’s mayor (Chilliwack Progress, Nov. 29). Sharon Gaetz is our mayor and our leader. Gaetz said she is more concerned with “making sure the local housing stock is safe,” and no grow-rip thugs are rampaging through her community. Which begs a question, how can Mayor Gaetz prevent the grow-rip thugs from rampaging through our community, more policing? After three years of Mayor Gaetz in office, it is still easier to buy pot on the street than cigarettes from a store, which only proves more policing is not working. As long as marijuana remains illegal we will have violent growrip thugs rampaging through our community and there is no law or police force that can prevent the criminal activity of the grow-rip thugs.

Nobody is safe from the home invading violent grow-rip thugs; who frequently target the wrong addresses. According to Statistics Canada, over 45% of the Canadian population have and do use marijuana: According to the City of Chilliwack official web site, the 2011 population of Chilliwack is 82,000 people. Using the Statistics Canada numbers, if 45% of the Chilliwack population use marijuana; that means, in Chilliwack, we have 36,900 people using marijuana. According to Statistics Canada, in Chilliwack, 36,900 people use marijuana for a variety of medical and nonmedical reasons. According to Statistics Canada, almost half of the Chilliwack population use marijuana. The 36,900 people want marijuana legal so they do not have to worry about the supply source and not live in fear of the grow-

The 36,900 people, who want marijuana legal, are professionals, homemakers, students and poor alike The 36,900 Chilliwack citizens who use marijuana do so of choice and they are tired of being negatively represented by the mayor. Almost half of the Chilliwack population is pleading with the mayor to protect them from the rampaging home invading criminals and police. We want Mayor Gaetz to get on board with the other mayors and put pressure on the government to decriminalize marijuana. Michael Hodge

A call for a B.C. pesticide ban Premier Christy Clark is to be commended for supporting a province-wide ban on lawn and garden pesticides. If passed, this legislation would be hugely popular and have a very positive effect on the health of B.C.’s people, environment, and economy. How can we be sure? Because we’ve seen what happens when pesticide regulations are passed in other provinces. The first result, not surprisingly, is a very low pesticide usage rate. Quebec’s pesticide ban took effect in 2003. By 2007, chemical pesticides were used by just 4% of Quebec households with a lawn or garden. By contrast, in B.C. – which lacks a province-wide ban -- the figure was 25%. When pesticides are taken off store shelves, people are no longer exposed to lawn chemicals which can cause

very serious medical problems. Doctors writing in the scientific journal Paediatrics and Child Health found the common weed-killer 2, 4-D ‘can be persuasively linked to cancers, neurological impairment and reproductive problems.’ When Ontario’s pesticide ban came into effect in 2009, the province removed more than 250 of these toxic products from the market. The benefits to human health are obvious. The Ontario ban is also improving water quality. The Ministry of Environment studied pesticide concentrations in urban streams before and after the ban came into effect. The study found that, following the law’s introduction, pesticide concentrations were up to 97% lower in some waterways. That’s an extraordinary result and suggests a provincewide ban in B.C. would have similar benefits.

The Ontario ban has also been well-received by lawn care businesses. The firm Environmental Factor – which makes a non-toxic weed inhibitor -- had a 400 per cent increase in sales and manufacturing in the ban’s first six months. Business expansion also occurred when pesticides were banned by municipalities. For example, in the five years following passage of a pesticide bylaw in Halifax, the number of landscaping and lawn care companies in that city grew by 53%. Finally, this legislation is a winner with the public. Polling done in B.C. by Innovative Research Group and released in February, 2011 found support for a pesticide phase-out was over 70%. Perhaps most significantly, the study found support for the phase-out does not differ between rural and urban areas: No mat-

ter where they live, the vast majority of British Columbians want an end to toxic lawn products. We would suggest B.C. model its ban on Ontario’s excellent Cosmetic Pesticides Ban Act but go one step further: in addition to lawns and gardens, extend the restrictions to golf courses. We would urge British Columbians to e-mail the Premier (premier@ gov.bc.ca) today with one simple message: This year give us the protection from pesticides already enjoyed by millions of other Canadians. Gideon Forman is Executive Director of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment (www.cape. ca). Dr. Warren Bell is Past Founding President of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment.

Particularly stinging to the Sto:lo is the apparent permission they need to get from the Yale chief to access sacred cultural sites and family fishing spots. The level of mistrust between the two sides is palpable and has led to violent confrontations in the past at dry rack fishing sites and at a Sto:lo cemetery. BC Treaty Commission spokesman Brian Mitchell said “several efforts” have been made to bring the two sides together “without any real success to date,” but those efforts will continue. The commission has used other means of resolving overlapping claims, he said, including funding “experts” to mediate agreements and in some cases asking native elders to resolve differences using traditional laws and protocols. But he said the commission won’t hold back a First Nation that’s on the verge of finalizing a treaty. The Yale have been in treaty talks for 18 years. Duncan said it’s her “impression” that the federal government has an obligation to First Nations to ensure that any overlapping claims are settled before a draft treaty is concluded. “That would be my impression,” she said. But the “bigger issue” is the federal government is “not living up to the treaties they’ve already signed,” she charged. According to the Land Claims Agreements Coalition, the federal government is “fulfilling neither its agreements in full under these (treaty) agreements, nor their spirit and intent.” The Inuit of Nunavut is suing the federal government for $1 billion related to “failures to implement fully the 1993 Nunavut Land Claims Agreement,” the coalition said. rfreeman@theprogress.com

Chilliwack Mayor Sharon Gaetz stressed the need for donations throughout the year. “We must remember that hunger does not end on Christmas Day,” she said. “People in our community are very generous and I believe will welcome this exciting opportunity to extend their giving attitude.” Chilliwack Salvation Army Food Bank director Don Armstrong said the need for donations cannot be understated. “At this time of year we are in urgent need of tinned meat, fish, fruit, vegetables and readyto-eat products such as ravioli, stew, port and beans and the like. We also need peanut butter, pasta, rice, cereals and baby food. And of course, cash is always happily received.” Tickets may be purchased in advance online through www. chilliwackchiefs.net or at the Prospera Centre Box Office.

Record haul for food drive Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Chilliwack residents are being thanked for their heartwarming generosity. A serious spike in donations from Chilliwack residents made Monday’s food drive a “resounding success,� said a Chilliwack Fire Depar tment spokesman. About 20,000 food donation items and $600 in cash were collected in the door-to-door food drive organized by local emergency ser vices including Chilliwack Fire, Chilliwack Search and Rescue and Chilliwack Emergency Social Services. “It was a record haul indeed, with upwards of 25 per cent more collected this year,� said assistant fire chief Jeff Ullyot. “The volunteers cov-

Donations will continue to be accepted at Fire Hall # 1 at 45950 Cheam Avenue from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Last year about 16,000 food items were collected in the 2010 food drive, and in 2009 the total was 12,000 items. “There has been a very significant increase from year to year,� said Ullyot. jfeinberg@theprogress.com twitter.com/CHWKjourno

Michelle’s Family Hair and Dolores’ Hair Care together in one location!

Fraser Health launched a new online tool Monday to help showcase surgeons in the region. With the new website, patients and physicians can find the names of surgeons who may be able to perform surgical procedures sooner than others, said Fraser Health in a release, with online users able to choose from a drop-down list of surgeries. A list will then be shown of five surgeons in Fraser Health who are predicted to likely be able to perform the surgery sooner than expected. With more than 250 surgeons operating in 10 hospitals, it has been a challenge in the past

to know all of the region’s surgical health specialists and their predicted wait times for surgery. Entitled the Soonest Surgery Tool, the website is www.fraserhealth.ca/surgery. It uses data that Fraser Health provides daily for the Ministry of Health’s Surgical Patient Registry. Using calculations based on the number of procedures that the surgeon has performed in the last four months and the number of patients on their wait list, a list of the five surgeons is shown. The website also provides helpful information on how to prepare for surgery, including check-

lists for patients, information for patients on post-surgery care and how family and friends can help. “Long surgical wait times are a challenge across the country,” said Fraser Health’s president and chief executive officer Dr. Nigel Murray. “While a knee replacement or hernia repair might not be urgent, for the individuals waiting, it can be an unpleasant experience. The Soonest Surgery Tool is one way we can inform patients of surgical wait times so that they are able to make informed decisions about their surgery.” Black Press

No confirmed anemia in B.C. salmon, says CFIA After completing extensive testing in an investigation into infectious salmon anemia (ISA), the Canadian Food

none have ever tested positive, says the CFIA. While ISA poses no risk to people, a Simon Fraser University professor recently reported finding the ISA virus in two smolts from Rivers Inlet on B.C.’s central coast after testing 48 wild salmon samples in May and June. In the October SFU release, it was concluded that “the only plausible source” for the ISA virus “is the Atlantic salmon farms.” The BC Salmon Farmers Association, which noted it has been testing regularly since 2002 and has never found ISA, welcomed the CFIA’s latest news. “It is good to see that our testing results...have been validated by CFIA’s extensive follow-up on these reports,” said BCSFA executive director Mary Ellen Walling.

There is no question that Rich Kramp was a very talented hockey player and although he was raised in a military household, where regular posting orders were an ordinary occurrence, his family clearly encouraged and supported his talent, no matter where they lived. Rich obviously inherited his father’s athletic gene since his father had been a semi-pro hockey player prior to joining the air force. “My dad was always my coach until I hit the junior ranks. I played minor hockey over in Europe, s i n c e we were stationed there, Ana then I played in MACEDO Comox and I also played for the Chilliwack Bruins who were Junior A at the time and the New Westminster Bruins,” he explained. He then signed on as a free agent with the Buffalo Sabres and played with their farm team, winning the US Hockey League’s Scoring Champion title during the ’75-’76 season. In total, Rich played in the US for eleven years before making the decision to head back to Chilliwack in 1981. “I really enjoyed living down there and had applied for my green card but through the process came back up here to Chilliwack. Rod Cooper, who owned Auld Phillips, hired me to work in the warehouse while I waited for the process to be finalized. Shortly after starting with them, I became a supervisor and one thing led to another and I never left,” he chuckled. Although he gave up playing hockey professionally when he returned to Chilliwack, Rich continued to play recreational hockey and one day decided that he wanted to help out the community, in the same manner that he’d helped out the City of Milwaukee. “I played in Milwaukee for five years and back there, we were involved in the MACC Fund (Milwaukee Athletes for Childhood Cancer). I had a blast doing this back there. This was a year-round fund and as athletes we were always involved in promos to raise money for this special cause. I thought that I’d like to do this in Chilliwack. I Continued: CATT/ p23

While Auld-Phillips was a great starting point for Rich after he moved back to Chilliwack, he eventually moved on and for the last twenty years has been busy with his own contracting company; building homes throughout the area. He also continues to play hockey with the same group of guys that he played with back in 1981. “We all used to play rec hockey together and now

we’re playing old-timer’s hockey,” he laughed. He is a proud father of 30 year old son, Nelson, and 28 year old daughter, Jessica. “Nelson is a contractor in Vancouver and Jessica is a veterinarian assistant. They’re good kids,” he beamed. Rich and his second wife, Robbie, are also very proud of their four year old daughter, Shelby. “She just started skating last year and now wants

to play hockey. She’s a real sweetie. We also have a new one on the way in January,” he said proudly. The family lives on a hobby farm in East Chilliwack and life on the farm with a curious and energetic little girl is quite the adventure. “We have two miniature donkeys, two goats, chickens, two dogs and a cat.” We both chuckled in unison, “And a partridge in a pear tree.”

talked to Greg Robinson about setting up something and he thought that it was a good idea. Greg was my roommate when we both played for Chicago and when I came back here in 1981, he was already back living in Chilliwack,” he said. Soon after, the CATT Fund (Chilliwack Athletes for Turkeys and Toys) was born and it’s been going strong for the last twenty-five years. The first couple of years, competitors played ringette; a game requiring the use of straight sticks to control a rubber ring. The objective of the game, as with most sports, is to score goals by shooting the ring into the opponent’s net. “After two years, we decided that we had to move away from ringette and move to a less physical contact sport. We introduced volleyball and it’s been that way ever since. This was a good move,” he laughed. After eleven years of organizing an event that became one of the highlights of the Christmas season, Rich decided that it was time to move on. “At the same time, I didn’t want to have it just end because Chilliwack Community Ser vices came to rely on the toys and the cash. The event became part of their Christmas Sharing program, so I approached Rotary and they’ve been doing it for the last fourteen years. I knew that they’d have the people and resources needed to move the event forward. The Mt. Cheam Rotary Club took it on and they’ve done a great job ever since. It’s a great thing to know that something that you started is still a tradition in the community and that it continues to help those in need,” he said. The CATT fund wrapped up last weekend and the event raised $20,000 and collected 375 toys for Chilliwack Community Ser vices’ Christmas Sharing efforts.

Big profit on driver’s licences ICBC charges $75 for a new or renewed driver’s licence, but it only costs the corporation $10 to issue the licences, B.C. Auditor General John Doyle says in a new report. The fee is set by the provincial government, which takes all the revenue and leaves ICBC to fund licence handling costs from its insurance revenues. The licence fees added up to $36.5 million in revenue to the province in the fiscal year that ended last March. Doyle found fees are set by the government without providing a rationale to the agencies that collect them. Some fees haven’t been revised since the 1990s, and nearly half of the 2,332 fees studied in the audit had no date recorded for when they were last revised. Black Press

The B.C. and federal governments have announced a $10 million fund to help lowskilled and long-term unemployed people get into industrial jobs where there is a skill shortage. Jobs, Tourism and Innovation Minister Pat Bell announced the fund Monday at a skills development conference in Vancouver. Industry organizations may apply for up to $50,000 to fill identified skills shortages, such as heavy-equipment operators for mining or retail employees required to learn new computer systems. Skills training programs are to focus on unemployed people who have not an Employment Insurance claim in the past three years, or lowskilled people without post-secondary training or trade certification.

Trombonist Bob Dyck and conductor John Louwersheimer are gearing up for the Chilliwack Metropolitan Orchestra’s performance at Evergreen Hall on Dec. 16. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Christmas Song Festival touts sing-along Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Fans of the Christmas season often enjoy the joyous experience of a sing-along at a Chilliwack concert. Singing en masse is all part of the fun at the Christmas Song Festival when Chilliwack Metropolitan Orchestra and Chilliwack Metropolitan Youth Orchestra warmly welcome the Abbotsford Male Chorus at Evergreen Hall on Dec. 16. Over 150 vocalists and musicians will be celebrating the sea-

son with an engaging evening of orchestral and choral music. The CMO/CMYO, under the baton of Maestro Johan Louwershiemer, are performing a selection of well-loved music from both the popular and traditional Christmas repertoire. “This is our third Christmas Song Festival and the audience has taken delight in the opportunity to sing with a full orchestra,” says CMO member Anne Fleming. “This year there will be the additional experience of singing with a 60-member

chorus.” The Abbotsford Male Chorus is preparing an irresistible and varied program with everything from baroque pieces to gospel. On the playlist for the Chilliwack concert is a special song called Listen, an original composition with lyrics and music by Henry Wiebe, the chorus’ artistic director. The Abbotsford Male Chorus is known throughout the Fraser Valley for its steadfast support of local charities, assisting local food banks,

to Menno Hospital and Teen Challenge. They also favour international causes and have shipped farm equipment to the Congo as well as building materials, food and clothing to countries devastated by flooding and earthquakes. The AMC will be offering CDs for sale on the night of the concert with all proceeds to charity. A Salvation Army Kettle will also be on-site to accept donations for the Salvation Army Kettle Drive.

The orchestra and chorus will join forces at the end of the program for the traditional sing-along portion of the evening, with the orchestra and of course the Hallelujah Chorus for a grand finale to the evening. “Please come and join us for what will be a wonderful evening of inspirational Christmas music.” Christmas Song Festival, Dec. 16, Evergreen Hall, doors 6:30 p.m. concert 7:30 p.m. Tickets $15/$10 at the door, and children under 6 are free.

FREE ADMISSION TO STAVE FALLS VISITOR CENTRE IN DECEMBER During the month of December, admission to the BC Hydro Stave Falls Visitor Centre is free with a donation to the Mission Christmas Bureau. Non-perishable food, new gift items, and cash donations are welcome. Located in the picturesque Fraser Valley, the Powerhouse at Stave Falls demonstrates how the power of water has helped to build a legacy of clean, reliable power for our province. The powerhouse offers more than just beautiful scenery. The historic site of Stave Falls has something exciting for everyone to experience. ã7UDYHOEDFNLQWLPHE\YLHZLQJKLVWRULFYLGHRVDQGGLVSOD\VGHSLFWLQJOLIHLQ%&LQWKHV ã9LVLWÞ*HQHUDWRU+DOOßDQGOHDUQKRZSRZHULQJRXUSURYLQFHKDVFKDQJHGRYHUWKHODVWFHQWXU\ ã7DNHSDUWLQRXULQWHUDFWLYHJDPHVDQGOHDUQKRZWRFRQVHUYHHQHUJ\

Rat pack trio to dazzle Chilliwack Dino, Frank and Sammy are almost in town for their holiday show. Christmas with the Rat Pack is live on the Chilliwack Cultural Centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Main Stage, Friday, Dec. 9. As Dean Martin, tribute artist Andy DiMino riffs on the icon with a few jokes, highball and cigarette firmly in hand. Lambus Dean is Sammy Davis Jr. with his studied movements and accurate

vocals bearing an uncanny resemblance to the multi-talented song and dance man. Gary Anthony plays crooner Frank Sinatra who embodied the glorious excess of a bygone era. Christmas with the Rat Pack with the Sin City Orchestra, $45, Dec. 9, 8 p.m., Chilliwack Cultural Centre, 604-391-SHOW(7469).

while,” he said. Of course, performing outdoors in the winter comes with its own set of challenges. “It’s certainly a unique thing,” he said, and long johns and turtle necks are necessities. It’s not the cold so much that affects the show, and he has some experience from playing the ’88 Calgary Winter Games. But the rain can cause concerns, he said. When they were performing in Vaughan, Ontario on Tuesday, they met up with some serious moisture.

he said as the train got moving in northern Ontario on Wednesday afternoon. “It’s wonderful. The sun has been shining and we’ve had the first snow of the trip.” The trip includes an average six short shows a day. The train pulls into a town, drops the side of one railcar, which quickly converts to stage, and the show begins. Dignitaries jump on board for a presentation to the local food bank, and then the concert can begin. Once it’s over, they roll up the

show and head out to the next town. Some days, it means as many as eight stops. Last year, audiences across Canada were treated to a concert by The Odds. This year, they’ll get to hear Valdy play one of his most popular tunes, Play Me a Rock n Roll Song. And once that’s out of the way, he’ll move into some holiday themed music. It’s a type of show he’s enjoyed so far. “Today, for the first time, I did Frosty the Snowman,” he said. “It’s nice to be able to use the holiday repertoire because it only comes up once in a

A new vocal ensemble of Sto:lo youth is making its performance debut at the Sto:lo Nation Christmas Party on Friday, Dec. 9 in Chilliwack. Vocal coach Melanie Nieva and ensemble director Inez Jasper said they’re not sure who is more excited about the concert, them or the students they’ve been working with.

rehearsing in September 2011 as a choir for Sto:lo Youth. “It has evolved into a young women’s group,” said Nieva. They’ve been getting together every Sunday to learn material ranging from traditional Latin songs to cool pop mash-ups like Nieva’s unique Selena Gomez and Pink arrangement. The collaboration between Nieva and Jasper was inevitable. They both attended Chilliwack Junior and Chilliwack Senior, and both took band and choir together. “We sat beside each other and that’s when the bond started,” said Jasper. “We are total goofball band geeks!” Since graduating from high school, both Nieva and Jasper have gone on to pursue music as a career. Part of the aim has been to model confidence and passion to the young women in the choir. “Music has enriched our lives in so many ways. Performing music has given me confidence, self-discipline and drive,” said Jasper. “Mel and I are already seeing positive impacts on the students.”

Hitting Trail again as Chiefs return home

Eric J. Welsh, The Progress They beat them twice in Trail. Now, the Chilliwack Chiefs are hoping home ice advantage gives them another win over the hapless Smoke Eaters. Chilliwack hosts Trail Friday night at Prospera Centre in the first of two crucial weekend games against Interior conference opponents. The Chiefs took two from the Smokies last weekend, winning 6-3 on Friday night and 2-1 in the Saturday rematch. Chilliwack has dumped Trail three times this year, contributing to the Smoke Eaters’ league-worst record of 5-18-1-3. The Chiefs enter the weekend 15-9-0-1, six points ahead of their Saturday night opponent. Chilliwack visits Salmon Arm for the second time this season, and the fourth meeting overall. The Silverbacks have yet to beat the Chiefs this year, though they’ve changed significantly since the last time Chilliwack saw them. The Chiefs beat Salmon Arm 4-3 in overtime back on Nov. 12, with Bryce Gervais picking up two goals for the Silverbacks.

Gervais has since been dealt to the Penticton Vees. Salmon Arm still boasts plenty of offence, led by the big three of Devin Muller, Brett Knowles and Morgan Zulinick. Between them, they’ve collected 30 goals and 96 points. Myles McCauley, one of the players picked up in the Gervais trade, scored his first goal as a Silverback on the weekend. The other significant piece in that deal, Garrett Hendrickson, has seven points (five goals) in 27 games.

AROUND THE LEAGUE

But the biggest change in Salmon Arm comes behind the bench. On Nov. 30, the team put an article on their website announcing the sudden departure of associate coach Dan Cioffi. “My vision for this hockey club differs from Dan’s an enormous amount,” said head coach and general manager Colin O’Hara. “I feel that our club needed to have one unified vision and we needed to make this change in order to accomplish our goal.” The SilverBacks promot-

ed Jayson Reardon to fill the vacant position. Reardon played defence for the Silverbacks the last two seasons. “The first couple of games were a little bit tough for me but the more you go along the better it gets,” the 21-year-old said of his first taste of coaching. The Silverbacks have gone 5-4-0-1 over their last 10, taking four of their last five. Salmon Arm went 2-1 against Island opponents last weekend, losing 7-2 in Victoria Friday

Rookie Surrey Eagles defenceman Devon Toews has accepted a scholarship to attend Quinnipiac University. An Abbotsford native, Toews has scored four goals and eight assists in 25 games with Surrey this season which puts him second on the team in defenceman scoring. The 5-foot-11, 165-pound blueliner becomes the fifth Eagles player to earn a scholarship this season. Quinnipiac competes in the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference and there are currently eight BCHL graduates on the men’s hockey roster.

night before taking games against Nanaimo (6-5 in overtime Saturday) and the Alberni Valley Bulldogs (2-1 Sunday). “That was actually a really good one for us, probably the most complete game we played,” Reardon told the Salmon Arm Observer. “Even though they had more shots, (Bulldogs goalie Max) Fenkell made some unreal saves. He was real good for them and Williams too for us.” The Chiefs will have a scrambled lineup as head coach Harvey Smyl tries to

deal with various injuries and absences. Forward Trevor Hills will miss Friday’s game due to suspension. For ward Spencer Graboski and defenceman Alexandre Perron-Fontaine are both dealing with injuries and the Chiefs will be relying on affiliate players to fill out the roster. ● Friday night is the Teddy Bear and Toque Toss at Prospera Centre. Fans are invited to toss their items on the ice when the Chiefs score their first goal.

The Smoke Eaters sent Nick Wong and Adam Boytinck packing in a three-way deal that brought them 18-year old Tanner Clarkson from the Nanaimo Clippers. Nanaimo then sent Wong and Boytinck to Grande Prairie for forwards Mike Sones and Dan Correale. In Clarkson, the Smokies get a player with good offensive skills which should help the league’s lowest scoring team.. Clarkson scored eight points in the BCHL this season, but put up 42 points (24 goals, 18 assists) in 49 games as a 17-year-old with the junior B Kelowna Chiefs last year.

Bears fl B fly on FFriday id Go with the toques, as Community Services is a little short on those right now, writes Jacob Bestebroer There is lots going on off the ice as we nearr the holiday season. The Chilliwack Chiefs Annual Teddy Bearr and Toque Toss takes place tomorrow as the Chiefs host the Trail Smoke Eaters. Fans are encouraged to bring a teddy bearr or a toque to throw on the ice when the Chiefs score their first goal of the game. (Quick triviaa question, who scored the goal to set off the firstt Chiefs Teddy Bear Toss in 1998? Answer at end of article). All bears and toques collected will be donated to Chilliwack Community Services. If you have stuffed animals and toques and are trying to decide which to bring, go with the toques as Community Services is a little short on those right now. The Chiefs also announced yesterday thatt Dec. 28 will be the first annual “Fill the Rink forr the Food Bank” night. The Prince George Spruce Kings are the opponent and all tickets are priced at just five dollars, including all taxes and services charges. We only ask that you bring a non-perishable y food item as a donation to the Salvation Army food bank. If you are a season ticket holder you can bring a friend to the game for free. You can pick up your free ticket(s) in advance at either the Prospera Centre box office or the Chiefs office. At this time of year the food bank is in urgentt need of tinned meat, fish, fruit, vegetables and k ready-to-eat products such as ravioli, stew, pork and beans and the like. They also need peanutt butter, pasta, rice, cereals and baby food. Back to on-the-ice happenings now. Chilliwack is a perfect 3-0 against Trail this season and used two wins in Trail last weekend to vault them into third place in the Interiorr Conference. Saturday they travel to Salmon Arm. That’s two games against teams near the bottom of the conference and a great chance to pick up four points. But it won’t happen by just showing up. Both the Smokies and Silverbacks have been playing better as of late. Salmon Arm has justt won two straight on the road in Nanaimo and won Alberni Valley. Alberni Congratulations to former Chief Kevin Estrada who resumes his hockey careerr this week with the ECHL’s Ontario Reign in California. Injuries have kept Kevin from playing for a while now so nice to see him back on the ice. while Thank you to everyone for your feedback on last week’s column about the BCHL’s All Time Top Fifty team. Top To answer one question, no, I don’t think k former Chiefs captain Peter Zurba should have been on the list. I do think though that he is in the discussion on any type of all-time Chiefs team. Trivia answer: Jamie Weiss.

Golden Gibson leads Spartan swimmers Chilliwack’s Spartans Swim Club attended the Richmond Fastswim Swim Meet Dec. 2-4. The meet was host to 350 athletes, including 11 locals. Jessie Gibson competed in the 13-year-old girls division, finishing with five gold medals. Gibson cleaned up in the 200 metre individual medley, 200m backstroke and 50, 100 and 200m flies. She added

silver in the 800m freestyle. Sydney Torok competed in the 14-yearold girls age group, splashing her way to seventh in the 800m freestyle and eighth in the 400m freestyle. In the 15-and-over girls division, Kelsy Langille completed her meet with a fourth place finish in the 800m freestyle and a sixth in the 200m fly. On the boys side,

Jordan Torok won gold and silver in the 15-andover division. Torok won gold in the 1500m freestyle and silver in the 200m fly. He added a fourth in the 400m freestyle, fifth in the 200m freestyle and sixth in the 100m fly. In the same division, Justin Awrey placed eighth in the 50m breaststroke. David Lavin finished sixth in

The Unity Christian senior boys basketball team is coming off back-to-back impressive seasons, making it to single-A provincials two years running. But they’ve done so both times without winning their own league. Unity Christian has fallen slightly short as compared to arch-rival Langley Christian, but UC vice principal Mike Campbell believes that’s due to change. “We are heavily favoured to win the Fraser Valleys, in large part because we have three returning starters and have added five grade 10s who

played in the East Fraser Valley final last year,” he said. UC typically puts a tall team on the floor, one that excels around the basket. The drawback is that a tall roster is often a slower roster. An infusion of Grade 10 talent at the guard position has Campbell believing the team will be both big and fast. “We will continue to run an offense where all the players play interchangeable positions, the guards can post up and the posts can shoot,” he said. “However, this year we are much deeper and we hope to add more of an up-tempo run-

ers also on the team. The tiny school starts the season ranked sixth provincially. Because they are hosting this year’s single-A provincials, they are guaranteed a spot in the year-end tournament. And so, UC has made it their goal to get that elusive Fraser Valley title. “Knowing we are already in this year as the hosts allows us to focus on adding two banners to our gym wall at the end of the year,” Campbell noted. “Barring any injuries, this could be the strongest team that this school has fielded.”

and-gun style to our offense.” Grade 12 guard Nathan Vugteveen stands six-foot-five and is arguably one of the top three players at the 1A level in the province. He is complimented by the Grade 11 post player Ryan Billsten. At six-foot-six, Billsten is a load for any defender near the hoop, but he also possesses a soft shooting touch. Billsten hit 14 three point shots at the provincial championships last year. UC also returns third-year starting point guard, Jason VanWyk, with his two broth-

thumping at the hands of Victoria’s Brandi Tinkler rink. Sunday morning saw Prinse and company upend Victoria’s Merit Thorson rink 9-3. They followed that with an 8-6 win over Brittany McAulay’s rink from Richmond (one that includes Chilliwack native Kayleigh Alendal). The Prinse rink finished the event with some revenge, doubling the Tinkler rink 8-4 in the final. Ali Renwick is the second, Dana Page the third, Amanda Tipper the lead and Casey Freeman the fifth. The team is coached by Dorren Jones. The 2012 Tim Hortons BC Junior Curling Championships runs Dec. 27-31 in Victoria. Check online at www. playdowns.com or www. curlbc.ca for more information.

Babies of 2011

How to write a classified ad that works Writing an effective classified ad is easy when you know how. What follows is a step-by-step guide focusing on the time-tested principles of a successful ad. 1. Use a KEYWORD. Start your ad with the item for sale, the service offered or the job title. 2. Be DESCRIPTIVE. Give customers a reason to respond. Advertisers have found that the more information you provide, the better the response. 3. LIMIT abbreviations. Use only standard abbreviations to avoid confusion & misinterpretations. 4. INCLUDE PRICE. Always include the price of the item for sale/rent. 5. GET ATTENTION! Use enhancements, such as LARGE TYPE, white space, borders, graphics, etc. to bring attention to your ad.

It will take all of your persuasive power to do so. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, avoid letting your guard down after something falls in your favor.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, a change of scenery could help bring a new perspective to something that has been on your mind. Get out of town for a few days and enjoy the respite. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, it’s time to put that creative energy to good use. Now could be the time to spearhead a project that has your name written all over it. Start drawing up ideas. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, there are plenty of ways to enjoy a wonderful birthday celebration, but the most ideal could simply be surrounding yourself with family and friends this week. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Take a cue from someone close that less is more when you’re caught in the middle of a squabble, Capricorn. Keep your opinions to yourself for the time being. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, there may be a few bumps along the way, but this week figures to be peaceful and relaxing. Plus, your financial situation is steadily improving. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, use your cache of energy to plow through projects at work and free up some time for fun for the weekend into next week.
