CYBORG CIGARETTE GIRL

To properly celebrate this futuristic costume, we must look into the past. Ashley Martin, the creative reporter whose work usually graces the fashion page in QC in Regina and Bridges in Saskatoon, agreed to resurrect her fashion-conscious costume from 2011. If there were an Olympics for Halloween costume design, Martin’s silvery Cyborg Cigarette Girl from the Future would win gold, if not only for its merits as a piece of fashion, but for its originality. Martin’s first idea was to somehow transform herself as an “alien or robot or something.” She set off to Lowe’s in Regina for inspiration and found herself in an aisle full of appliance accessories, including aluminum ducts and other silver bits and pieces. “I found this one little piece that looked like a cigarette girl hat … that’s when I thought ‘cyborg cigarette girl,’” said Martin, adding she still isn’t sure of the real purpose of her makeshift hat. “I think it’s something you put under your washing machine, but I’m not sure.” The rest of the costume was easier, especially since it meant she could apply paint to her face, one of Martin’s favourite Halloween initiatives. “I have this weird compulsion to want to paint myself on Halloween. Some people want to dress sexy. I just want to paint myself.” As for her dress, she made it herself using shiny material purchased from Globe Fabrics in Regina. “It’s pretty rough. I am not a great seamstress. But it works pretty good as a Halloween costume.” There’s more to Cyborg Cigarette

Girl than her clothes — she sells cigarettes, after all. The outfit comes with a tray full of cigarette packages whose company logos have creative names like Martian Marlboro and Player’s Robot Cut. There’s also a version of the du Maurier brand, but there’s a bilingual component — the name appears in English and in a made-up alien language. Cigarettes are rather expensive in the future, as you might guess. The Cyborg Cigarette Girl from the Future made two public appearances last year, including the 2011 Halloween party at Crave, as well as at a show by Toronto indie band Zeus at the Exchange. This year, Martin plans to resurrect her costume of the secretary from the movie Beetlejuice. “I don’t normally like repeating costumes year after year ... but (this) was one I did when I was 20, so I think enough time has gone by.” Other unique costumes Martin has developed include a leprechaun — with a painted green face, of course — and the victim of a meatcleaver attack to her head, which was made with the help of her father when she was in Grade 7, a getup that earned her an award for best costume. As she ventures out this Halloween, she scoffs at suggestions that Halloween should only be celebrated by children. “I think the love of dressing up isn’t just for kids. I think you can be a grown up and still like getting dressed up in costumes,” she said. “In my real life, I am never going to be a cyborg cigarette girl. I am never going to be an undead receptionist … I guess it’s about having the chance to become somebody you’re not.”

It’s a costume and it’s not me and I’m playing and I’m having joy in this playing, so I’m being sexy. — Darlene Juschka

WOMEN’S HALLOWEEN COSTUMES

Living out a fantasy on All Hallow’s Eve By Ashley Martin For 364 days a year, you’re just a woman. You wake up, go to work, try to keep up the semblance of a social life while maintaining a house and (if you’ve got ’em) raising kids. But, on Oct. 31, you can be whatever you want to be. When you’re a child, Halloween is fun. You’re given licence to yell “trick or treat” at the top of your lungs and are rewarded with candy, all the while in costume. And who doesn’t like dressing up? It’s the love of the costume that lasts into adulthood, that fantasy of wanting to be something you’re not. (OK, maybe the love of the candy lasts, too.) But as an adult, you’re probably not dreaming of being a Muppet or a Disney princess. Your fantasy is a little more grown up than that. “The whole idea of Halloween and being an adult and going out is that you can be something that for 364 days of the year you’re not,” said Wendy Brown, the owner of The Costume Emporium. And for many women, that means dressing a little sexier than what they wear day to day. “If you live in this town, half of the city works for some level of government or a Crown Corporation and there’s dress codes and everything else that go by it. So for one night a year, cut loose,” said Brown. If you’re female, there are rules and regulations about how you look, said Darlene Juschka, head of the University of Regina department of women’s and gender studies. “Say you reveal a little cleavage, then that can often be frowned upon.” If a woman shows skin in a normal setting — at work or school, for example — she might be met with disapproval by her boss, teachers or peers. But Halloween is a world turned upside down, “so I can turn myself upside down,” said Juschka. Continued on Page 6

You go to movies and you see these hot girls dressed up and they’re bad ass, and it’s like, ‘I’d love to play a role like that.’ . . . Halloween is an opportunity for you to act that role. —Tasha Knowles

“It’s a costume and it’s not me and I’m playing and I’m having joy in this playing, so I’m being sexy.” ■ ■ ■

l e a d e r p O sT.cO m /q c

Tasha Knowles looks forward to Halloween all year long. The 26-year-old loves dressing up in a costume. “You get to be somebody else for a day,” she said. “Maybe a fantasy of somebody you wanted to be or play a different role. It’s fun. It feels sexy. “You go to movies and you see these hot girls dressed up and they’re bad ass, and it’s like, ‘I’d love to play a role like that,’ but you’re not an actress, that’s not your profession, so Halloween is an opportunity for you to act that role.” Knowles has adopted the persona of a couple of big-screen characters for Halloween, including Catwoman, one of her favourite costumes. But Poison Ivy, which she ordered online, was a disappointment. “It wasn’t original; it wasn’t the way I’d seen it in my head,” she said. “(It) was just a green body suit with black lace and that’s nothing at all like Poison Ivy.” Knowles chooses at least two costumes every year because she doesn’t like to repeat herself, and tries to be as creative as possible. “I don’t want to go to the party or wherever I’m going and see a whole bunch of other people wearing the exact same thing that I’m wearing. I like creative ideas, I like to think outside of the box and that ‘wow’ factor.” She budgets for it too: One year she spent about $550 on Halloween costumes. Knowles often gets several friends together to do a group costume. One year they went as the Spice Girls. As Ginger Spice, Knowles enlisted a friend to help with her costume: gluing blue, red and silver sequins onto a corset to form a Union Jack pattern. Another year, with her sister Megan and two other friends, she went as the four seasons. As Summer, Knowles glued fake flowers onto a bra and skirt. Her sister did the same with leaves as Fall. Four years ago, the Knowles sisters dressed up as Thing 1 and Thing 2 from Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat. The costumes were two years in the making — it took a long time to find “perfect blue wigs” — and they had the outfits custom made.

I’m a traditionalist. I still like the witches and the devils and the ghosts, because that’s what Halloween’s all about, and if that costume is done well, it still beats anything else that’s out there. — Wendy Brown

“Everyone that saw me and my sister come in was like, ‘Ahh! Thing 1 and Thing 2, that’s awesome!’ I liked that. I like positive reactions,” said Knowles. “I like the attention of it and the reaction on people’s faces.” But the reactions aren’t all positive, especially when it comes to some of her sexier costumes. Her “scandalous” police officer costume, made up of a tight top and booty shorts, drew a lot of eye rolling from other women at the bar one Halloween. But it doesn’t bother her. “I like the negative reactions too. You can look at me all you want, I don’t care. I look hot,” said Knowles. “A negative or positive reaction is still a reaction.” ■ ■ ■

Brown doesn’t carry extremely sexy costumes in her shop, even though about half of her women’s costumes are classified as sexy. “The costumes that we bring in, they’re sexy, meaning they’re short, they are above the knee, but they are so cute. They are so adorable that I’d let my teenage daughter wear them,” she said. As for the risque bra-and-panties-style costumes, ���I leave that to the love shops of the city to carry.” For Brown, Halloween is about being scary, not sexy. “I’m a traditionalist. I still like the witches and the devils and the ghosts, because that’s what Halloween’s all about, and if that costume is done well, it still beats anything else that’s out there.” But what’s out there, especially in those big stores that pop up in the month of October, isn’t too creative, which is why Knowles generally avoids them. But mass-manufactured Halloween costumes have another fault, according to Juschka. “I can go into the store and the question will be ‘what do I have to choose from as an adult female?’ So I might see a maid costume, a harem costume, a nurse costume, a Playboy Bunny costume, and those are what’s given to me, this is what I’m presented with in terms of sexy, and since I live in this social body I think ‘oh yeah, they are sexy.’ “We’ve been told ‘this is how you women look sexy’; this is the masculine fantasy about what a sexy woman is.” There are other ways women can be sexy on Halloween without displaying as much skin as possible. That said, Juschka says women should not be blamed for choosing a sexy Halloween costume. “I’m happy that women aren’t afraid to be sexual. It’s too long that we haven’t been able to claim our sexuality and claim it as something joyful.”

YoU aRE NoT aLoNE

Investigating Paranormal Activity at the WDM For those who believe in the paranormal, it is natural to expect activity at the Western Development Museum (WDM), where personal items may still harbour a connection to their original owners. Ghost hunters, both amateur and professional, have approached us about investigating paranormal activity. Some requests have been as simple as students looking for a Halloween fright. Others have come from groups possessing a full battery of gadgets to help find ghosts. The recent popularity of ghost-hunting programs on television and movies, has increased the number of requests coming to the museum. In 2009 we began to consider investigating some of the stories of paranormal activity that had been reported at our five locations. Our Saskatoon location was even on one website’s

list of Top 10 haunted locations in Saskatoon. What stories had put us on such a list? Museum staff had heard claims of paranormal activity but had not investigated to see if the rumours could be true. Making this Top 10 list inspired a look for paranormal investigators in Saskatoon who would be respectful of the institution and our artifacts while searching for evidence. It was important that the investigators came from a valid organization with a reputation for thoroughness. We found this in the Sask. GhostHunters Society Inc. (SGHS). SGHS showed a keen respect for our mandate and brought a scientific approach to their work. SGHS relied on technology and specialized equipment designed to detect paranormal activity. The paranormal project has given us a unique

opportunity to tell stories in a different way. Our aim is not only to educate but to entertain the public we serve. We are proud to release You Are Not Alone, a compilation of mysterious stories from three years of paranormal investigations. The book is available at all Western Development Museum locations in Saskatchewan.

local history

Regina College has its share of ghosts By Ashley Martin For the past few years, local historian Don Black has given an annual lecture about haunted College Avenue at the U of R Centre for Continuing Education. The location of Black’s lecture has its own ghost stories. There were three notable deaths on or near the old U of R campus (then called Regina College), which was founded in 1911. “When I hear that there are ghosts in this building, well who are they?” said Black. “If they are here, and I respect everybody’s chance to believe in them, I think they’d be one of the people who passed away from typhoid.”

Q: Tell me about Frank Darke. A: He was a Regina pioneer and he was a cattle buyer and he set up a butcher shop ... His business did well so he

invested in land and land was going crazy so he made a ton of money. He was also a great philanthropist so he gave the seed money for the Methodist college — Regina College — then he also donated the money for Darke Hall. Frank Darke died in 1940 and his funeral was held in Darke Hall. He lay in state in Darke Hall. Then he was buried in the mausoleum at the Regina Cemetery. It’s the city’s only mausoleum. People say Frank Darke’s rattling around here. He’s probably resting pretty comfortably.

Q: What about the pilot? A: (Regina College was taken over by) the Initial Flying Training School for British Commonwealth air training during the Second World War ... The guys lived in here and they also had parties. ... It’s been reported a few times that

during one of these parties up on the tower, a young air guy fell off and died and that’d be a big surprise. Maybe that would make you be a ghost. I don’t know.

Q: What’s the typhoid story? A: (People) say they’ve seen ghosts in the old lecture theatre, which is part of the original building, which is now condemned. When (typhoid) struck here, it was about eight or 10 years before there were antibiotics so there was no treatment for it. Typhoid was caused by the salmonella bacteria ... (It’s like) if you had the worst flu you’ve ever had for three weeks straight and then you died, dehydrated and diarrhea and sweating and you just die. So this bug was brought into the school through the milk supply because it was unpasteurized. They converted the whole

third-floor residence into a hospital and they isolated the school, they shut it down. ... Sixty-eight students, four teachers and six staff members contracted typhoid. Eight students died. Put yourself in this school then. It was brand new. These guys are from all these small towns. They just started their first term in some cases. They’re excited, they’re happy ... They’re just kids. But the fall, November, it’s all gone for them and they’re taken away from this place. ... (One teacher, Roy Renwick) died; they had the funeral for him in the lecture theatre. When you Google ‘what is a ghost?’ there are those two things: One, they don’t know they’re dead, or two, they just have so much unfinished business, it’s just such a shock that they can’t leave this place. I think this is a real (ghost story).

Don Black stands in front of Darke Hall.

Q: Why did the typhoid epidemic happen? A: One of the (milk) handlers was a carrier of typhoid and that milk came in here and made everybody sick because it wasn’t pasteurized. City council, god love ’em, first thing they said, ‘I’ve been talking to my buddies who are dairy farmers. We don’t need to pasteurize.’ ... And people kept dying. Other

people got sick. Finally all the doctors, my grandfather’s brother was one of them, got together and said, ‘Listen, pasteurize.’ So finally city council mandated pasteurization. ... So really if I was to see one of these ghosts here, of Mr. Renwick or one of the students, I’d have to thank them, because without their deaths, who knows how much longer it would have taken to get milk pasteurized here?

Lack of arts funding a scary situation By Jenn Sharp An eerie gathering is objecting recent cuts to arts and culture funding in a performance event perfectly suited for Halloween. Ghosts of the Arts: Saskatchewan is planned for Tuesday, Oct. 30 in both Regina and Saskatoon. Organizers are hoping to raise awareness about the negative impacts cuts to arts funding brings. Event attendees are asked to wear a white sheet or shroud to the silent protest. The white sheet symbolizes a blank canvas, a shroud of death and of loss, according to event organizer Sarah Abbott. “The white sheet hides diversity and diversity could be lost with cuts to the arts. We all really value diversity.” After the provincial budget was announced in March, many in the province’s arts community were outraged at the cuts made to culture spending. “Keeping the (Saskatchewan) advantage will be hard for the artists, arts organizations and cultural/creative industries given the budget delivered today,” stated a March press release from the Saskatchewan Arts Alliance. The Saskatchewan Film Employment Tax Credit Program was terminated, meaning Saskatchewan is the only province in Canada without such a program. The negative effect on the film industry has been wide spread, with many involved in protests and letter writing campaigns. The Saskatchewan Arts Board allocation in the provincial budget remained unchanged at $6.433 million. According to the Saskatchewan Arts Alliance, given increases in the cost of living, this amounts to a decrease. “This puts significant pressure on the arts sector to meet its increasing obligations and stifles growth.” Abbott says these cuts are troubling for everyone in Saskatchewan. Ghosts of the Arts came from envisioning a society without the arts. It’s one she says would be vacant and de-

pressing. She hopes that message is clear in the Ghosts of the Arts event. “Having us all look the same shows a lack of creativity. And that’s what we’re showing — what would happen if we lost the arts.” People in both cities are asked to meet at City Hall at 7 p.m., dressed for the weather under white sheets.

A prayer and smudge will begin the Regina event, after which the ‘ghosts’ will float around City Hall, down Albert Street and to the Legislative Building. In Saskatoon, the route will wind through downtown, to the Remai Arts Centre and end with a discussion at Collective Coffee on 20th Street West. About 150

people have joined the event on Facebook and Abbott expects many more will attend. Katrina German is attending Saskatoon’s Ghosts of the Arts walk and says the arts play an important part in any thriving society. German is the president of Lifetime Productions, a television, film and online

media company. She’s participated in several events protesting cuts to the film tax credit in Saskatchewan. “Participating in events like the Ghosts of the Arts and other conversations sends a clear message that we value a vibrant lifestyle in Saskatchewan, for ourselves and for our children,” she says.

I’m making mine & the hubs’ (steampunk styles) but snapped up a steal for the boy’s.” — Tiffany Wolf “Megamunch.” — Jess Paul “A penguin and a pumpkin.” — Jennifer Zaplitny Rathwell “My six-year-old son is wearing a Spider-Man costume. My four-year-old daughter is wearing a Little Mermaid costume.” — Dee B. “My daughter will be wearing a Big Bird costume and my son will be wearing a Winnie the Pooh/ Tigger costume this year for Halloween.” — Anjlee Bansal “My daughter is wearing a cute ladybug costume that is a hand-me-down from her older cousin. She’s excited to wear it! My son is also wearing a hand-me-down from his cousin, a cute fuzzy monkey.” — Chera Miller “My eight-year-old boy is a zombie and six-yearold girl is going to be a dancer.” — Jason F. “Will be up in the air until whatever event occurs: dance class, school, school dance and trick or treating will all be different.

The decision will probably be made the day before and will be dependent upon what’s available!” — Carla Contreras “My seven-year-old is going to be a devil and my four-year-old is going to be a witch.” — Kim Hambleton “My six-year-old has decided to be a witch, Hello Kitty, Batman and any other variety of characters … who knows what Halloween will actually bring!

gardening

It’s not too late to prepare for next year By Erl Svendsen As long as the ground’s not frozen or covered in snow, the garden season is not over yet. So there’s still time (but not a lot) to take care of a few last-minute chores to get your yard and garden ready, and save yourself some time next spring. 1. Rake leaves and fallen fRuit Don’t give mold, mildew and other pathogens a chance to take hold on your lawn. Rake up all leaves, fallen crabapples and other fruit, and anything else that will trap moisture or rot. These will make an excellent addition to your compost bin. 2. Mow lawn Mow your lawn one last time, but leave it longer than you would normally to help it survive the winter in bet-

ter condition. You can also use your mower to suck up leaves if you don’t want to use a rake. 3. Cut baCk peRennials If you do this now, there’s less chance of damaging early succulent spring growth. In my garden it‘s the ornamental grasses that start growing, sometimes before even the snow is completely gone. But it’s a balancing act. Some perennials benefit from being left intact as the dead aboveground plant material acts as a protective layer against low temperatures. It can also trap an insulating snow layer. 4. MulCh gaRden Organic mulch breaks down over time. Mulch performs a number of functions including protecting the root zone from our ultra-low prairie winter temperatures. Those leaves you picked up

with your lawn mower make excellent mulch.

like will only perpetuate these problems.

5. wateR tRees and shRubs This is especially important for your evergreens like spruce and cedars. Even though they don’t grow in winter, they are still respiring and require water throughout the fall, winter and spring. Deciduous trees and shrubs also benefit from a deep drink, providing a spring reservoir to draw from when they start to grow again.

7. plant bulbs It’s getting pretty late to be planting bulbs, but there are likely some good deals by now. Take a chance and you’ll be rewarded with early spring colour.

6. Rototill Get your vegetable garden and new planting beds ready now. This is an excellent time to add compost, manure, ground up leaves, etc. to enrich the soil. But do not add diseased plant material to your garden. Blighted tomatoes, plants with mildew, insect-infested plants and the

8. tuRn off outside wateR/blow out spRinkleRs/dRain hoses Water has the unique property of expanding as it becomes a solid. And while this characteristic means that ice floats and gives us ponds to skate on in winter, it also means that water filled pipes will burst when that water freezes. The $40 it costs to blow out sprinklers is well worth the investment considering the potential effort and cost to repair and replace pipes and hoses or clean up after a flood.

9. winteRize MoweR/ RototilleR/ pRessuRe washeR There are two approaches to winterizing gas-powered equipment. (A) Drain the gas. Or (B), fill the tank and add fuel stabilizer according to label instructions. In fact always use fuel stabilizer when you fill the jerry can to prevent the fuel from breaking down even during the summer. If you have a pressure washer, you will need to drain any water in the lines. You can buy a can of pressurized air to blow out the lines. This is also a good time to give any gas-powered equipment an oil change, replace air filters, get blades sharpened, refill the string in our lawn edger, etc. 10. Clean and shaRpen tools Clean your hand tools and sharpen shovels, hoes, pruners, etc. before putting them

away for the year. You can give them a light wipe with mineral oil to prevent rust. 11. Clean gutteRs Gutters are a great water distribution system. But they are also excellent leaf collectors which impede their ability to handle water. Now that most of the leaves have fallen and before the bitter cold hits, get out and remove the trapped leaves. You’ll thank yourself the next time it rains. 12. get out youR snow shovel Don’t kid yourself. Climate change will never give us a tropical prairie winter. You’ll have to get on a plane and go elsewhere in February to have one of those.

Do you go all out for Halloween like Pat Molloy? Tell us about your Halloween decor! Email qc@leaderpost.com

Front yard takes a spooky turn in October By Ashley Martin WHO? Pat Molloy, a lifelong lover of Halloween. WHAT? The Halloween scene at his home in northwest Regina’s Normanview neighbourhood. WHEN? Molloy and his family — wife Cheryl, daughters Caitlyn, 22, and Emily, 11, and sons Tristin, 19, and Conor, 14 — moved into this house in 2000, which is about the time he started decorating. Then three years ago, he really got serious about it. WHY? “I have a creative need that I have to fulfil and I’ve always been that way. I’ve always built weird things and I’ve always tinkered with electronics and electrical,” Molloy explains. “This just gives me an outlet where I can do it all.” To begin with, Molloy used storebought props, but “I was just not impressed with what I was seeing in the stores.” Further, “it got to the point where just putting stuff on the lawn wasn’t enough. It had no cohesion.” HOW? A web search led him to some online forums for people who build their own Halloween props. He followed their lead and three years ago, Molloy developed a vision for his front yard Halloween scene. The backstory goes as follows: The wife of an arrogant young doctor named Dr. Chard fell ill. When his modern medicine failed to save her, he sought help from three witches, the Weirding sisters. Even though they had some very powerful magic, they couldn’t help her. Chard stole their magic and in doing so, “he kind of created a portal that shouldn’t have been created and here it is.” Molloy built the fence out of wood and grey PVC conduit.

The gate posts are hollow and inside one is the “nerve centre for the yard” — a picaxe micro controller that runs the motorized props. The gargoyles on top of the gate posts are made of pop bottles and papier-mache and have the capability of blowing smoke out of their mouths. There are five pneumatic (startle) props, five motor-driven props and several static props, including the three witches, Dr. Chard and the bride’s coffin. The extension cords run in bunches to keep as clean an environment as possible, because “I will be in here, my son will be in here, I’ve got a couple of buddies who help out” scaring visitors. The whole scene takes two full days to set up.

Molloy loves seeing the reactions to his Halloween scene. “We have had tears. I haven’t had anybody wet their pants yet. ... People love to be scared; it’s why horror movies are as big as they are.” The proof is in the numbers. Most of Molloy’s neighbours get about 25 kids, but “we get about 250 and we get that many or more adults as well on Halloween night, plus all the nights leading up to it. There’s a constant parade of cars that come through here.” To put that traffic to good use, this year Molloy is asking visitors to bring a cash donation for Hope’s Home or a non-perishable food item for the Regina Food Bank.

Slithering Snakearm

By Jeanette Stewart Natashia Gagnon is a true animal lover. With two tiny dogs and two aquariums full of sea creatures, she’s got her hands full. But the Saskatoon stylist has one treasured pet, her Lesser Siren, an eel-like aquatic salamander named Snakearm that rules the tank, and sometimes the living room — he’s escaped on a few occasions.

school of them in there. I got them at the same time as Snakearm and he ate all the other glass fish. For some reason these guys have a bond. He ate all the other glass fish, but he won’t eat this guy. They have some type of deal.

Q: What is Snakearm? A: Snakearm is a Lesser Siren. Siren means mermaid.

Q: How does having fish compare to having dogs? A: You have to know a lot. You have to keep the water at the right temperature. You have to keep your tank refilled all the time and have the right amount of chemicals and test your water, otherwise you’re going to kill everything. It’s less work but really it’s not that much less work. You still have to feed them almost every day, you just don’t have to walk them.

Q: How did you end up getting him? A: I got him a few years ago. He was just at Petland. He was in a big aquarium with a bunch of them, but they were puny. He was as thick as a pencil. Q: What attracted you to him? A: The coolness. I always like freaks of nature pets. Weird pets. Instead of the most beautiful fish I always like the weirdos. He was different. Q: Was that your first aquarium project? A: I worked up to that. He was in a smaller aquarium. I didn’t realize how big he was going to get. I got him and he kept getting bigger and bigger and eating all my other fish. He couldn’t even lay out all the way. I had to buy him this massive tank. Q: Does he have to be alone? A: He actually has one other buddy in there. He’s called a glass fish. He’s nothing special. I had a whole little

Q: How long do they live? A: They can live 24 years. I’m stuck with him until I’m 50.

Q: Was he expensive? A: Snakearm was only 20 or 30 bucks. I’ve had some other guys that were more than that. That he ate. Q: Do you have any tips for keeping aquarium creatures? A: Keep your aquarium clean but not too clean. Make sure their aquariums are the right size for them, otherwise they’re not going to be happy. Snakearm is so happy in this tank because he can just dive around. Q: What are people’s reactions to him? A: Girls always scream and think he’s disgusting. Guys think he’s really cool and want to touch him.

For week of Oct. 21, 2012 By Holiday Mathis

choosing.

A cycle of soul searching begins with the sun’s transit into Scorpio turning the energy inward. With this kind of excavation, the treasure isn’t always glistening like jewels and gold. You may not even realize you’ve hit on something valuable until years later. The quest for meaning becomes a reward in and of itself.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). While you love being so much in the flow of life that you don’t have to think about how you’re doing, it doesn’t always work that way. Objectivity is necessary for your growth. A bit of selfconsciousness can be terrific. It reminds you to pull your shoulders back and watch how people treat you differently.

ARIES (March 21-April 19).

You’ll add new skills to your bag. Keep in mind that negativity has a disorienting effect on your learning process and choose teachers who radiate a positive attitude. You need to be encouraged. One or two nice comments aren’t nearly enough. Find the generous spirits who will give you more. TAURUS (April 20-May 20).

Adults, amused by youth’s idealistic point of view, like to ask children what they want to be when they grow

up. Ask the same question of yourself and you might be surprised by your answer. This week shows you as wideeyed and hopeful as you were many years ago. GEMINI (May 21-June 21).

There’s much you can learn on the Internet, but it’s the organization and application of information that will move you forward. An accumulation of facts is not the same thing as knowledge. This week you’ll get the hands-on experience you’ve needed to make a training process complete. CANCER (June 22-July 22).

People usually don’t have an excellent awareness of their attitude, but you’re different from most. You know what you want to project and measure it against what you are projecting. You make conscious adjustments if necessary to ensure that you’re radiating the mood of your

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). We live in a culture of labelling and diagnosing. Does everything have to have a name? This week you’ll be dealing with a situation that truly is hard to categorize, and it will be a waste of time to try. When you accept the way things are without calling it anything, you’ll respond to “what is” instead of “what it’s named.” LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23).

It takes an evolved and selfsufficient person to give the gift of freedom to others.

We’ll Meet Again Devised by Paul Gaffney & Nancy Turner

You truly want to see your loved ones happy, so this is easy for you this week. You’ll show your love by encouraging a loved one to pursue an individual path that may or may not include you. This will come back to you in a positive way. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).

What happens won’t matter nearly as much as who is involved. Make people your priority — not activities, money or productivity. This will be a challenge as the sun shifts into your sign and it’s a challenge to take seriously. Your work will always be there, but the people around you will change and grow and move. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Beware of the person

who never seems to make mistakes. This is in no way a good sign, as it indicates a tendency to cover up or a resistance to risk. For happiness and success, strive to be around real people who

openly discuss mistakes and invite others to help them come up with solutions. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You are a touchstone in

the lives of others. There’s no need to drum up extra excitement or do anything other than what comes naturally. Loved ones appreciate you for who you are: A solid, consistent person. They count on you to behave in the same way with the same attitude day after day.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).

With an open mind, you could be the one to come up with a brilliant solution to whatever ails people. You’ll have to reject convention, though. Also, don’t believe what you hear, especially if it’s the same thing you’ve been hearing for years now. Times are different and you’re different, too. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).

The routine that used to support your productivity is no longer effective. You feel driven to establish a new

MUSIC

Balancing a baby with a band By Ashley Martin The Empire Associates have Terrance Williamson’s mom to thank for their ability to practise every Monday night. Williamson and his wife/bandmate Kelsi Kerestesh have a seven-month-old son, Lucian. Every Monday night Lucian has a date with grandma, and the couple has a date with bassist Josh Legendre and drummer Ryland Ludwig. “His mom’s retired and she’s taken it upon herself to have almost a full-time job, as much as she can anyway, to get him over to her house,” says Kerestesh. “She’s in her glory,” adds Williamson. “We can barely hold onto him,” Kerestesh jokes. But it works out well for the band, which has been playing together for two years and recorded a debut album, In Times of Trouble, last fall.

“I was pregnant when we were recording the last time, so we were actually kind of wondering if he was hearing some of it,” says Kerestesh, who sings and sometimes plays mandolin in the four-piece. The Empire Associates had their CD release show at Regina’s The Club in January, when Kerestesh was seven months pregnant. “I was worried about standing in front of everybody and just toppling over. (The stage) was just one step but you never know,” she says. Luckily, having a baby hasn’t slowed them down. With the help of an agent, the band is getting all kinds of gigs. “I think if we wanted to make it full-time, we could, but right now I think we’re just going to see where this goes,” says Williamson, the band’s guitarist and sole songwriter. “A lot of songs are about when my wife lived in Ireland for a year — we were just dating at the time ... But a good number of songs are

about the friends and family we have lost in our life,” he says. But there’s not much time to write, between his job as an accountant at SGI and raising a baby. “He’s a new dad. Where does he find the time? I don’t know,” says Kerestesh. “Funny, now that I don’t have much time to write is when I’ve written most of my songs,” adds Williamson, who named his band to reflect the style of their music: “empire” for old and “associate” for new. “Basically we are taking an old genre and mixing in our own modern or new flavour,” explains Williamson, whose influences include Mumford & Sons, The National, The Beatles, Bob Dylan and The Wooden Sky. The band plans to record again in February and has several shows coming up: Oct. 27 at the Creative City Centre, Nov. 10 at the Fainting Goat, Nov. 21 at Bushwakker, and two December gigs in Moose Jaw.

Racers shares his love for the road

Julian Nahachewsky loves hitting the open road in his wheelchair racer. qc phOTO by andrew spearin

By Jenn Sharp Julian Nahachewsky broke his back about four years ago but didn’t let the injury slow him down. The 22-yearold has competed in races around the world with a wheelchair built for speed. He says he was honoured to place in the top 50. With his impressive skills and inspiring attitude we’re not surprised at his success. He’s now pursuing triathlons and

was happy to tell us what moves him.

Q: Describe your ride: A: This is a wheelchair racer. It’s different from my hand cycle because there’s no gears. You’re kneeling in it and your legs pop out the back. You push on the rims and wear special gloves to protect your hands because it would destroy your hands. Biking in this is the equivalent of going for a run.

Q: How long have you owned it? A: About three and a half years. Q: When did you get into racing? A: Almost as soon as I left the hospital. Two days after (leaving) I joined a race club. Q: What do you love about it? A: I like the training part of it and staying fit. I like the freedom it gives you. It’s made for

disabled people. The way it’s set up — you feel like you’re having a good workout.

Q: So it’s a good workout? A: Ya for sure! Especially for your arms, chest and abs.

A: (He laughs.) I don’t wear reflective stuff — I should. I wear a helmet. I’ve been out there for three years.

Q: Where do you go in it? A: I always go down Highway 16 east (outside Saskatoon).

Q: Have you had any close calls? A: Actually just recently some person almost smoked me! It was honestly like three metres from me.

Q: Do you get nervous on the highway? Do you wear reflective gear?

Q: What kind of events have you raced in? A: I’ve raced internationally

in the 100, 200, 400, 800 and 1,500 metre (events) and up to a half marathon. I did a triathlon with it too. I used my hand cycle for the biking portion and this for the running — that’s the way it will be done in the 2016 Paralympics. In my triathlons I did pretty good for my first time. I had a time that was decent enough to compete at Worlds, which was kinda crazy. I didn’t expect that to happen. Now I’m going to focus strictly on triathlons.

Gross-out Halloween party treats By Jenn Sharp Halloween is not the time to be serving five-course dinners replete with wine pairings. All Hallow’s Eve calls for finger food — and the more disgusting the better. One of my earliest Halloween foodie memories was going through the haunted house at my elementary school. Creative teachers had turned the school’s computer lab into a maze of dark tunnels and costumed ghouls were ready to pounce at every turn. I hate being scared and practically ran, screaming, through the whole thing. Then I got to the end where a table full of culinary creations awaited. In the dim red lighting, a bowl full of peeled grapes easily stimulated eye balls in my impressionable young mind. A pasta dish was made to look like intestines. Jell-O felt like brains and finger-shaped cookies with almond fingernails were enough to make my skin crawl. Bloody body parts, beakers of strange green liquid, bowls of worms, all manners of creepy crawlies — the list goes on. I was fascinated! It was then that I realized the power of food and presentation. The trick to successfully serving disgusting Halloween food is to keep the lights low and to use lots of food colouring (something I would never recommend at any other time of year. On Halloween anything goes.) If you want to add some healthy food into the mix, peeled grapes are great, as are livers made from watermelon, bones from peeled celery sticks and cold spaghetti “worms.” As any great chef will tell you, presentation is

half the battle, so serve it on a platter with your favourite Halloween props — fake eyes, ears or a bloody hand. It all adds to the illusion. And you can’t forget classic sugar cookies decorated as black cats, pumpkins, witches and the like. Monster or haystack cookies can easily become spiders too. Use whipped cream and chocolate chips to make little ghosts. Try making graves by filling small cups with chocolate pudding. Top with Oreo crumbs, a candy worm and a tombstone shaped cookie that reads R.I.P. Last but not least — my alltime Halloween favourite is popcorn balls. Use candy corn to make a jack-o’-lantern face. If you’re serving dinner at your Halloween party pick a dish with barbecue sauce. Add a substantial amount of red food colouring to give it a blood-infused glow. Try serving it with green mashed potatoes on the side. Renaming dishes is a fun way to get your kids involved. Kids are all about gross-out humour and they may surprise you with their interpretation of your Halloween dish (bat poop beans was a recent one I heard). You can always go the traditional route at your Halloween party as well with a fall theme. Anything with pumpkin or squash, cinnamon and nutmeg goes. Try roasted pumpkin seeds with sea salt, butternut squash soup or pumpkin cheesecake. Whether you’re hosting a Halloween party for kids or adults, people will always remember how much fun they had. So if your food falls short, no worries. You’ve still got your scary personality right?

Sugar cookies topped with red icing and almond “nails” are sure to shock guests. FIle phOTO

Curried Butternut Squash Soup with Coconut Milk One of my fall favourites is butternut squash. This recipe comes from Renee Kohlman and her delicious Sweet Sugar Bean blog (sweetsugarbean.com). If you’re hosting a dinner party in the near future, this soup is a guaranteed impressive first course. Or just make it for your family on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

2 cloves garlic, minced 1-2 heaping tbsp. Indian curry paste, mild or hot (I like Patak’s best) 1 L chicken stock (or veggie stock) 1 398 ml can coconut milk 2 tbsp. maple syrup 2 tbsp. fresh lime juice salt, pepper

INGREDIENTS: 1 large butternut squash, peeled and chopped 2 tbsp. canola oil 1 large onion, chopped

METHOD: 1. In a large soup pot, heat the oil. Add the onion and saute a few minutes. 2. Add the squash and garlic (and a few carrots, chopped, if you like). Cook a

couple more minutes. 3. Add the curry paste and stir for about two more minutes. Add the stock, just to cover the veg. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until squash tender. 4. Remove from heat and using an immersion blender, puree soup until smooth. 5. Put back on heat and add the coconut milk, maple syrup and lime juice. Add salt and pepper, and adjust seasonings. If too thick, add more stock. Soup freezes very well, and is even better the next day.

WINE World #

A lt o s d e l u z o n

An ultra-ripe Spanish red By James Romanow You will often hear cork dorks talk about New World versus Old World wine styles. The differences are primarily fruit and texture. Modern drinkers fell in love with the very ripe fruit style of red wines introduced 20 years ago by Californian and Australian winemakers. Some Europeans decried the new style preferring the higher acidity and leaner style of the traditional wines. Other Europeans jumped on the trend with both feet. Hotter climates in Europe were better suited to this style. They could produce ripe wines without much effort and their drinkers expected something not too different anyway. Spain is in the middle of this battle. Newer appellations like Jumilla have gravitated toward this ultra-ripe style of wine, while some of the older vineyards like Rioja are still working out what is best. Luzon is a vintner that is whole heartedly modern in style. Their vineyards are fairly high, and their Altos vineyard is located over 600 metres above sea level. Altitude matters when you have a hot climate, because quick cooling evenings result in a brighter, more acidic wine. Altos is unique in the Luzon lineup in that it depends on Monastrell (a.k.a. Mouvedre) as the primary varietal. This is a grape that makes rich, thick, meaty wines with a great structure. Luzon has blended Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo to add refinement to the muscular Monastrell.

It will suit serious red drinkers to the end of the evening. If you’re looking for a beef eaters’ wine look no further. Monastrell will take on a porterhouse with hollandaise without blinking.
