Vandals slash 120 car tires Alfie Lau

staff reporter

A recent spate of 120 tire slashings in the Barnet Road area and at two Burnaby car dealerships mirrors a similar pattern of activity which occurred in the city this past April and May. In the spring, approximately 100 cars had their tires slashed, bringing the cumulative total to more than 220 cars with slashed tires. According to Burnaby RCMP Staff Sgt. Andy LeClair, the incidents are taking place in different areas of the city and at different times. “This is disturbing because of how senseless it is,” said LeClair. “People are going to work or going about their business and this really impacts their day. … There’s no gain to the individual or individuals who are doing this.” LeClair said the December incidents occurred between Dec. 2 and 8, with 26 instances recorded in the Barnet Road and Pandora Drive area of North Burnaby, 60 tire slashings at one Burnaby car dealership and 33 at another dealership, along with two instances along Woodsworth Street near the Forest Lawn cemetery. Sad Thiara, dealer principal and general manager at Carter Dodge Chrysler on Lougheed Highway, confirmed with the Burnaby NOW on Wednesday afternoon that his dealership had been victimized. “We are covered by insurance, but this has affected our business,” said Thiara. “Half the cars still have flat tires and the sales guys can’t take them out on test drives with Tires Page 5

Almost since the beginning of her career at city hall, Donna Iacobellis has helped raise money for the Marguerite Dixon Transition Society every Christmas. The society runs the Dixon transition house in Burnaby and provides support for women and children who are fleeing violent situations. Donna, who began working at the front desk of the planning department in 1989 and is now a subdivision technician, became involved with the fundraising efforts in 1990 under the leadership of retired staffer

Helen Krenzler. Helen, Donna and a few other women would meet for lunch and decided to turn their creative talents to good use, Donna says. The group began creating objects to sell at a Christmas craft sale at city hall, giving the money to the society. “We started off with crafts, like crocheting while we were having our breaks, and knitting,” Donna recalls. Donna also moved on to painting Christmas decorations, making jelly and baking biscotti, she says. This year, she learned how to quilt from two other employees and made her first quilted Christmas

runner. “We spent a Sunday, and they were teaching me how to put things together and quilt, and I just finished on my lunch hour with the hand-stitching and stuff,” she says. Now, there are about 20 city employees involved in the effort, according to Donna, who took over organizing the fundraiser about five years ago. “I’ve got more ladies involved from here. I think that’s one thing I do well, is get volunteers,” she says. For one day in November, after Remembrance Day, city staff sell baked goods in the morning and hold a large craft, Caring Page 3

Bureau coming up short for Christmas

W

ith just a few days left, the Burnaby Christmas Bureau is still short almost $50,000 in reaching this year’s campaign goal. As of late Wednesday, the bureau’s efforts had garnered about $160,000; in all, they need $210,000 to make this year’s goal. Still, executive director Stephen D’Souza says he’ll continue to be optimistic, despite the shortfall. “We’re feeling confident – with a bit of extra support, and people digging a little bit deeper, we can still make it,” he said. really can.” ON MY BEAT “WeIt could be a Christina Myers challenge though, with just four days till Christmas, and bigger demands than ever before. Since the global economic crisis hit in 2008, the bureau has seen an increase in the families turning to the bureau for help due to job losses but a decrease in the amount of donations coming in, as people scaled back on charitable giving. The double-whammy left them dipping into their reserves – an emergency fund that had taken a decade to build up. The bureau, which provides toys for low-income families and hampers for seniors in need at Christmastime, has been operating in Burnaby for three decades. D’Souza says this year they’ve started taking a long, hard look at their operations and how they can do things differently given the changing needs in the community. “What we decided to do this year is really look at our program going forward, what we need to do with a growing clientele – and this is the first year that we’ve looked at new partnerships, the way we do business, to not just help people right now, but to look to the future. This is a step in the road to improve things and help people get out of poverty, rather than a stop-gap,” he said. For example, they’ve joined forces with the Computers for Schools and with the

Toys for kids: The Burnaby Christmas Bureau is in full swing during these final days leading up to Christmas. Stephen D’Souza, executive director of Burnaby Community Connections, is busy in the toy room.

Salvation Army to access services and supports for families that registered with the bureau. As well, the staff at Burnaby Community Connections (the bureau is just one program under its banner) are looking ahead to moving into a permanent office and program space location, thanks to a density bonus program with the City of Burnaby in which developers create community amenities in exchange for increased density in a project. The organization will occupy the stand-alone building at Lougheed and Rosser some time in the coming year; in

the meantime, the group continues to run Meals on Wheels, seniors programs, and a variety of other community services. “Burnaby Community Connections is giving every day,” said D’Souza. “Yes, we put a lot of focus on Christmas time, but really we’re here 365 days a year.” Despite being short in the financial goal at this point, D’Souza says he’s awed by the generosity of the city. “Toys have flooded in to us, and donations have been coming in,” he said. “People can help us get that fundraising campaign closed off (at goal) by sending us a cheque or making a donation online

– it has a great impact.” D’Souza said he knows people often feel hesitant to donate during times of economic uncertainty, but he encourages Burnaby residents to do just that. “In tough times, the best safety net is community, it’s pulling together, working through the hard times and sharing with each other – that’s the best thing for us as individuals, and for us as a community, and as neighbours and friends and family.” To find out more about the bureau this year, see www.burnabycommunityconnec tions.com or call 604-299-5778.

own things,” she explains. This year, there were two tables of books, donated to the sale by city staff, she adds. They also hold a spring bake sale and add those funds to the Christmas donation – about $700 to $800, according to Donna, who says the fundraisers can bring in as much as $3,000. This year, the fundraising efforts were boosted by an anony-

Tying it all together is the theme of women helping women. “The city’s involved with the Dixon Transition because we lease the property, so it was something we were aware of,” Donna says. “I think each of us in our own lives has had some influence from that – either it’s

ees and planning a large fundraiser might seem like a big job to some, Donna says she doesn’t see it that way. “I don’t even think of it as work,” she says. It is just one of the fundraising initiatives that city staff work on, she explains, adding many departments – including planning – adopt families to donate to for the holidays.

Indoor Lights & Electrical Decorations

• Examine lights, strings, cords, plugs and receptacles before using. Discard any that have frayed cords, cracks in the lamp holders, or loose connections. • Do not overload electrical circuits or extension cords, and follow instructions on cord labels regarding connecting light strings to extension cords. • Always unplug the light string before attempting to replace bulb. • Avoid using timers on indoor lights. Tree lights could turn on when no one is at home and create a potential fire hazard. Always turn Christmas lights off before leaving home or going to sleep.

• Though fireproof, metal or aluminum trees are electrically conductive and cannot be decorated with any electrical product. The metal can cause a short and a fire, or simply become “hot” or deliver a nasty shock. Aluminum trees can be illuminated by a colourful spotlight placed a safe distance from the tree, as set out in the manufacturer’s instructions.

• Before buying a tree test for freshness by tapping the base of the tree on the ground or pulling lightly on a limb. If many needles fall off or needles can be easily pulled off, the tree is too dry. • Keep your tree as fresh as possible by placing the stump of the tree in a bucket of water outdoors until you are ready to decorate. Before setting up the tree inside the house, trim two inches off the stem diagonally so it can absorb water. Mount the tree securely in a large, wide-based reservoir stand and add water each day to ensure the tree is well watered. • Choose a suitable location for your tree, ensuring that it is well away from heating sources and clear of all exits.

The Burnaby RCMP is looking for witnesses who may have seen something, either in the spring or earlier this month, to come forward. “The individual or individuals responsible for this have most probably bragged about this crime,” said LeClair. “We have had people come forward and tell us they have heard suspicious activity, but we need some good witnesses to come forward.” LeClair said people should be careful because “anybody who’s slashing tires has an edged weapon.” “We’re asking people to get a good clothing description or to remember the face and to call 911,” said LeClair. “We need help from the public. It’s not uncommon for the vandals to continue their behaviour until they’re caught, so we’re looking for the public’s help.” LeClair said conservatively speaking, the tire slashings have caused more than $200,000 in damage. “We’re talking about some cars having all four tires being slashed and with tires costing $150 and up, you’re looking at a ballpark of $1,000 if you’re replacing all four,” said LeClair.

Thiara said the dealership had security cameras and a roving security guard working on the night of Dec. 8 when the slashings occurred, but there wasn’t anything on the video that could help the police. “We’ve never had a problem like this before,” said Thiara. “It wasn’t only us, as I know the Enterprise (rental car office) down the street was hit too.” In the spring, on April 27, the tire slashings were predominantly occurring in the underground lots of four apartment buildings in the area between Gaglardi Way and North Road. The parking garages are located in complexes along Aries Place, Centaurus Circle and Lyra Place. There were 60 instances of tires being slashed in this area, but there were also eight instances recorded in May in the Metrotown area and 20 tire slashings reported in the Edmonds area.

Freezing my head to escape winter IN MY OPINION

I

Matthew Claxton

just don’t like winter. Every year at this time the ads come on TV advising me this is the most wonderful time of the year (humbug!) and that I should get outside, tug on a toque, and smell the pine scented air, preferably from atop a pair of skis or skates purchased from one of my fine local retailers. Unfortunately, I’m only fond of “sports” which can be conducted somewhere warm and preferably dry. Online video games, Scrabble and competitive sleeping are my favourite winter pursuits. Normally, I write about 15 extra columns and a few news stories (“Politicians made people mad” and “Criminals are dumb” can be written weeks in advance) and then go to sleep for two or three months. I’ve missed my deadline to start hibernating for the season. For the serious hibernator, the time to begin is late August/early September, when you should start your all peanut butter diet and begin lining your burrow with yak fur. Having forgotten to buy the peanut butter and embroiled in

a lawsuit against a negligent yak fur vendor from Kathmandu, I am reluctantly moving on to Plan B. I’m going to have myself frozen until next spring. This is a bit pricey, but compared to the cost of three months of gas, food, car insurance, rent, and power bills, it’s cheap. I do see the irony in having myself frozen to avoid the cold, but a bit of cryonic stasis will leave me thoroughly unconscious. As unconscious as you can get, since I’ll technically be dead. This is also a good way to get out of paying some taxes, FYI. In the spring, I’ll be bathed in a warm bath of goo by technicians who will zap my heart back to life and get me to sign all my government-mandated reanimation forms on the way out, certifying that I am indeed fully alive and that I do not crave the blood, flesh, and/or brains of the living. This year, I might save even more by having just my head frozen. It’s a lot cheaper to get the coconut lopped off and stored by itself. You need a lot less liquid nitrogen, and the head storage unit is the bachelor suite of cryonic holding facilities. I’m still trying to decide what to do with my body. I could rent it out, thus making a profit from my voyage away from the land of the living.

In any case, predictions for our demise abound through ancient and modern history. Some religions have made it a fundamental part of their belief system. Others spring up randomly when some charlatan has just recalculated the biblical math and, lo and behold, the end is near – right after he has acquired all his followers’ worldly possessions. We don’t know why folks have to come up with unlikely end-of-the-world scenarios when there are likely ones. Climate change, North Korea’s unpre-

dictable insanity, loose nuclear weapons – heck, those seem scary enough. It’s enough to make you pull the covers over your head and stay in bed with your iPad. Of course, the media doesn’t make it any better. We’re much like the cavedrawing neanderthals, only now we’ve got social media to use along with our other scare-mongering tools. The cure? Stop worrying about the end of the world, and start thinking about today. If it’s your last, or your first – at least you’ve got it now.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Bad decision on HD Mining

Dear Editor:

So on Friday, Judge James Russell made a ruling regarding HD Mining International’s hiring of temporary workers and denied unions an injunction, saying it is unclear there would be any damage to the Canadian labour market. B.C. Jobs Minister Pat Bell has defended HD Mining’s plan to use temporary foreign workers and recently suggested the jobs linked to exploration work are slated to last up to eight months. (Actually it is more likely to be at least four years or more.) It’s too bad we can’t replace Judge Russell and B.C. Jobs Minister Pat Bell with foreign workers as

well. To me, these two so-called professionals are taking away qualified Canadian workers’ rights to these jobs. The only reason HD Mining is hiring these foreign workers is because they are being paid a lot less. Jobs in Canada should go to Canadians first and not to outside foreign workers. If HD Mining does not comply with hiring Canadians first, I would like to see the government stop the operation of HD Mining till they agree to hire Canadian workers first. As far as Judge Russell goes, it is too bad judges are not elected in this country. Hopefully that will change in time. And as for B.C. Jobs Minister Pat Bell, I’m sure

Nonsense not skepticism

Dear Editor:

Dear Editor:

I was so glad to read Marjorie Griffin Cohen’s op-ed piece, Women bear the brunt of poor policy, in Monday’s Vancouver Sun. Amid all the speculation about why women voters remain largely unimpressed with Christy Clark, Professor Cohen contributes some vital pieces of factual information. In short, a concerted government strategy to advantage employers by suppressing wages, has disproportionately affected women. After 11 years, not only do women’s earnings in B.C. trail the national average, they earn only 65 per cent of what men earn. Perhaps in their rejection of Christy Clark, women voters are making a rational political decision based on sound economic evidence. My experience over the last year and a half of talking to women voters on their doorsteps would support this theory. They tell me about daughters trying to pay off student loans on barista wages; they tell me about putting careers on hold because they can’t find affordable child care; they tell me about taking early retirement to care for elderly parents. Many of the women I meet aren’t buying Christy Clark’s “families first” rhetoric. They know that actions speak louder than words and that the B.C. Liberals are deeply committed to a dogma that leaves their families vulnerable to economic forces beyond their control. The women I meet are looking for concrete practical measures that will address growing inequality and

In his Nov. 30 letter to the Burnaby NOW, Ziggy Eckardt asserted, “Deniers question all statements.” This is an outrageous fabrication. The global warming deniers love to pretend that they are injecting a dose of healthy skepticism into a controversial subject. The reality is very different. In the past 20 years, more than 10,000 peer-reviewed articles relating to global warming were published in the scientific literature. All but 25 of them support the position that first, global warming is happening; second, its current manifestation is primarily caused by human activity; and third, it presents an enormous threat to the survival of the human civilization. Most people are probably unfamiliar with the peer-review process, and have no idea of the savage level of criticism you have to overcome to get articles published in the real scientific literature. Anyone who has gone to graduate school or beyond will have experienced it directly. When you submit your first draft paper to your supervisor, it doesn’t matter how good you are, it will come back drenched in red ink. You learn pretty quickly that you have to get every statement you make exactly right. Even a one-per cent error rate means that you won’t get published. This is where the real questioning happens. Some people claim that science is mostly bogus, and that scientists just sit around trying to trick other people into giving them money. This is ridiculous. We understand many things about the universe

Science is sound on global warming continued from page 7

very well. We understand electricity well enough that when you flick the light switch, the lights go on, 100 per cent of the time. We understand electronics well enough that everybody on the planet could walk around with a powerful computer in their pocket. We understand classical mechanics well enough that we can send a spacecraft to any point in the solar system, and it will get there every single time. The list goes on, and on, and on. Science works, and it has generated an enormous amount of knowledge over the course of human history. And yes, we do understand a great deal about global warming. The global warming deniers don’t care about any of this. Their “questioning” rejects 99 per cent of the peerreviewed science without any justification, and accepts without question any unvetted claims that fit with their world view. This is not skepticism. There is truth, and there is nonsense. Some things are knowable, and some things are known. It is absurd to put nonsense on the same level as knowledge. When I teach thermal physics, I teach what is known, and I do not tolerate nonsense. If a student should insist that nonsense be acceptable, I don’t have to “debate” anything. I just fail them. Such mechanisms are unavailable in public discourse, and unscrupulous people take advantage of it by insisting that people listen to their nonsense, so that public policy gets formulated on the basis of nonsense. At some point, the right of free speech needs to be restricted. Just as society does not permit individuals to run around and burn houses down, society needs to prevent individuals from trying to burn the global house down.

Contemplating urban neurosis Dear Editor:

Your busy readers, rushing around between jobs, family, holiday events, and shopping up to our socio-corporate expectations, probably won’t have time to read this. Too bad. Since Oct. 10, when I blew a brain gasket and began a sixth-month medical non-driving advisory, I have spent considerable time being driven around by those I have driven in the past. It has given me the luxury of watching the faces of other drivers, passengers, pedestrians, cyclists, and cops, something I had scant time for when the wheel was in my hands in the combat zone. What do I see? Urban neurosis. Fear. Stress. Anxiety. Aggression. Competitiveness to the Nth degree. And, of course, the usual: Incompetence, ignorance, stupidity, ego-centrism, and “Pedal-to-the-metal, if anyone is going to be first at the next multiple car pile-up, it’s gonna be ME! attitude.” Now, I’m quite certain that most of those individuals, away from the metro-mob environment, in a non-driving, calm debate would agree that the cost of urban neurosis is staggering: deaths, loss of loved ones, loss of businesses, lifelong injuries, unquantifiable pain and suffering, groaning health care costs (most don’t realize much of the cost of an ICBC claim is downloaded onto our public health care system), the trauma experienced by everyone in the health care system, the gigantic cost of turning new BMW’s into pop cans, and on, and on. However, you know what else I see? Exchanges of smiles. Waved or honked thank-you’s for a break in traffic. Motorists stopping to help each other when they have a problem. Young drivers (yes, I said young drivers) driving competently and courteously refusing to be rattled by those who honk and swear, and tailgate, and flash high beams instead of engaging their brains. I see more and more not drinking and driving, using Operation Red Nose instead, for example. I will miss driving for Red Nose this year, one of the season’s highlights for me in former years. So here is my Hanukkah, Eid, Kwanzaa, winter solstice, Christmas and New Year’s wish to you: take a deep breath, remember life and health are precious, pain, misery and financial ruin are a pain in the ass. There is nothing more effective you can do to achieve the benefits and avoid the costs than just be happy and share that happiness with your fellow human beings. It takes fewer facial muscles to smile than to frown. Winks, nods, waves, smiles, laughter … we all have them in our arsenal, too. Just use them. Happy trails and happy holidays to all the readers out there in Newsland. Ryan Lake, via email

UNION CONTRACT NOW SAYS WORKPLACE HARASSMENT, NOT SEXUAL HARASSMENT

Change reflects new workplace expectations Janaya Fuller-Evans staff reporter

It took the removal of just one word to change the scope of one part of the City of Burnaby’s new contract with the Canadian Union of Public Employees, Local 23. “It was a fairly tiny change,” Bob Moncur, Burnaby’s city manager, said. “We have a specific clause in the contract that prevented or spoke to the issue of sexual harassment, and the union side had asked that we include some language about what they call workplace harassment.” The issue can be complex, Moncur said, as it can be difficult to determine what constitutes workplace harassment or bullying. “So what we decided all in all was the easiest way to do it was just to remove the word sexual, so where it previously said ‘sexual harassment in the workplace shall not be tolerated’, it now says ‘harassment in the workplace shall not be tolerated,’” he said. Complaints made under the new contract will follow the “normal course of grievance handling,” he added. “It allows a union member who feels they’re harassed to say, ‘according to the contract, harassment will not be tolerated. I think I’m being harassed, therefore, I have a grievance,’” Moncur said. Other unions in B.C., including the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union, have added workplace harassment or bullying language to their contracts recently in an attempt to curb onthe-job bullying. Overall, the negotiations between the City of Burnaby and the union went smoothly, according to Moncur. “It was carried throughout with a very positive tone. I don’t think there was any sort of nastiness or any animosity from one side to another,” he said. “The union has its job to do, to present things on behalf of its members, and

management has its job to do, primarily looking for opportunities to reduce costs and save money and that kind of thing.” This was the first contract the city negotiated on its own since withdrawing from the Greater Vancouver Regional District’s labour relations bureau. Burnaby gave two year’s notice in 2008 that it would withdraw from the bureau at the end of 2010. During this round of negotiations, the city made its own presentations to the union, and analyzed all the information itself, including the cost to the city for any changes. “That was all kind of done in-house this time where before that was always done by the GVRD,” Moncur said. Leaving the bureau has resulted in a cost savings for residents, he added, as the charge for the service was included in the annual Greater Vancouver Regional District tax levy on property taxes. “It was not on the tax bill for past two years,” Moncur said. “Nominally, the citizens of Burnaby saved money more than the city itself.” The recently appointed acting director of human resources, Pat Tennant, headed the city’s work on the contract. “She did just an outstanding job for us,” Moncur said of Tennant, who was most recently assistant ERP project manager for the city. “She’d been in the position before, had gone away to the computer project for a while, and was able to come back and hit the ground running because she’d been there before.” The city reached a fouryear collective agreement with the union, with a 6.75 per cent increase, he said. The increase is broken down over the four years – 1.25 per cent for the first year, 1.75 per cent each for the second and third years, and two per cent for the fourth year, Moncur added. The agreement is retroactive to Jan. 1, 2012 and ends Jan. 31, 2015.

Make some new friends

The contract did not include any whistleblower protection language, he confirmed in a followup email. “Even last time, it was brought from another jurisdiction by the union and after some discussion we decided there was no example in Burnaby of a ‘whistle blower’ being treated incorrectly and we don’t usually amend the contract on the basis of ‘what-ifs,’”

he wrote. The issue came up during the last round of CUPE B.C. contract negotiations in 2007, with some Lower Mainland locals demanding whistleblower protection language be included. Local 23 put the language on the table but later removed it, according to local president Rick Kotar, because it was determined it wasn’t necessary in Burnaby.

Kotar refused to release details on the terms of the recent agreement or speak to the Burnaby NOW, saying it is because of past coverage in the paper. The Burnaby NOW had published an editorial in 2007 suggesting the Burnaby union local did not push for whistleblower protection – unlike the union in Vancouver – because of its cozy relationship with a city hall led by the NDP-

Keep it simple Too much noise, confusion, can add to anxiety for seniors dealing with challenges Jennifer Moreau staff reporter

Gerontologist Katherine Willett has some words of advice for people with elderly loved ones who are dealing with challenges: keep things simple this Christmas, especially if a loved one is suffering from dementia. “Large celebrations can be confusing and even scary and agitating to a person living with a disease that destroys their brain,” said Willett, who “Make sure they hosts Burnaby are able to par- information sesticipate and are sions for fammembers cartruly included in ily ing for elderly the celebrations loved ones. “We always tell famiin a way that’s lies to keep it comfortable for very simple.” In the early them.” stage of dementia, someone KATHERINE WILLETT gerontologist with Alzheimer’s might appreciate being with a lot of people, Willett said, but if grandpa’s dementia is progressing, it’s best not to bring him out for family celebrations. “Just be mindful that if there are seniors in the room or at the table.

goes on, there’s a lot of noise that goes on. … There’s a lot of things that are outside of the routine of an elderly person.” Willett also recommends that family members watch out for the “trip factor” during the holidays if they have elderly family in the home. “At Christmas, when they are visiting family, often there’s lots of stuff on the floor, like kids toys and everything,” she said. “(Families) just need be more mindful of the fact that there’s someone in the house that may be a little bit frail.

You want to watch the trip factor. You also want to watch the alcohol intake. ... Someone who’s on a lot of medications, after two drinks can … fall and break a hip.” Christmastime can also be very sad for the elderly, Willett said, because the longer they live, the more losses they have experienced. “They’ve lost a lot of friends and also family members. A lot of seniors have lost not only spouses but adult children,” she said. “I think it’s just a very sad time.

There’s a tendency to kind of isolate, or maybe they sit in the corner and drink. You’re watching everyone around you having a good time, but you are not.” According to Willett, the greatest gift to seniors is time and attention. “By the time you’re 70, you’ve accumulated so much stuff, but you’d like the opportunities and the time with your friends and family,” she said, suggesting experiential gifts, like lunch or a trip to the art gallery. jmoureau@burnabynow.com

very year, NOW reporters get a modest gift from the company to give to our best sources. While there were many this year, and it’s difficult to choose, I’ve decided to give my present to Paul Cipywnyk of the Byrne Creek Streamkeepers. Paul is always available for a

phone interview, and he has posed countless times over the past year (and in previous years) for photos related to all the salmon stories we’ve done. He’s kept us abreast of the latest developments within the streamkeeping community, and he was the one who forwarded us the email from Otto Langer regarding the leaked documents about the Conservative changes to the Fisheries Act. That was a national story, and we got it online before any other news outlet, but we wouldn’t have done so if it weren’t for him. So thank you, Paul. Your efforts have made my job easier,

and it’s been a pleasure reporting on all the hard work the volunteer streamkeepers have done to make our waterways a healthy habitat for salmon.

From Kathy Walden. This is our family favourite recipe that I make at least twice every year. Happy holidays to you and yours.

with a fork til well blended. 2. Measure butter and sugar into a large mixing bowl. Beat at medium speed using an electric mixer for about 2 minutes, or by hand until thoroughly combined. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla. While continuing to beat mixture, gradually pour in eggnog.Then, beating mixture on low speed, gradually and continually add flour mixture. Beat just until all flour is moistened. Overbeating at this stage will toughen the cookies. 3. Drop rounded teaspoons of dough onto an ungreased baking sheet, leaving at least 1-1/2 inches between cookies. If you wish, tops may be decorated with ground nutmeg, cocoa or a pecan half.

From Rita Zucchetto

Our family really likes the perennial favourite: fruit cake.The following recipe is one I received from my Mom. Each year I, my Mom and my aunt, all buy our ingredients from the same grocer, use the same recipe and make our cakes in October. Surprising how the cakes all turn out a bit different. One year at our annual family bake exchange, we had a Fruit Cake Taste Off to determine who makes the best Christmas Cake.

Light Fruit Cake

f

Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Mix together first four ingredients. Stir in flour, a little at a time, along with the walnuts. Shape dough into 1-inch balls and place on cookie sheet. Bake at 350˚ F for approximately 20 minutes, until golden. Wait about five minutes, then while cookes are still warm, roll in icing sugar. (The heat will cause the icing sugar to stick to the cookies, coating them.) Arrange the cookies on another cookie sheet until they are completely cool, then store in an airtight container. Enjoy! Yield: approximately 3 dozen cookies

Season’s Greetings and may y0u enjoy a prosperous New Year

The holiday season has always been one of my favourite times of the year. When hearing Christmas songs, I can’t help but think about big turkey dinners, nicely decorated trees, and the relaxing moments away from our busy work schedule. It’s a time for celebrating family and friendship, and giving thanks for the things we hold dear. It’s also a time to remember those who aren’t as fortunate, and to lend a helping hand if we can. There are many ways you can help spread holiday cheer to those in need, from donating warm clothing and food to a local charity, to volunteering at community outreach events. One of the most enduring holiday fundraising efforts is the Salvation Army Kettle Drive. Kettles can be found outside many stores and supermarkets, but you can also go to fillthekettle.com to make a donation, which goes toward providing everyday needs such as food, clothing and shelter.

When I was a young girl, my mother made luscious peanut butter balls that would melt in your mouth. I just loved them but, alas, when I asked her for the recipe several years after moving out of the house, Mum told me she had lost it. Luckily, 30 years ago I met my good friend Moe. Her sister-in-law in Ohio would send her some of these “buckeyes” every year from the batches she made with her church auxiliary ladies group to sell at their Christmas bazaar. When I tasted them, I knew that I had found the elusive peanut butter ball recipe.These are even better than my mother’s, as they are decadently dipped in chocolate! This recipe was my contribution to the cookbook Great Canadian Cookies, Bars and Squares, sponsored by CBC Radio and published in 2002.

Buckeyes

1 lb. butter 2 lb. peanut butter 3 lb. icing sugar Coating: 2-3 lbs. melting chocolate

READERS’FAVOURITES

Combine butter, peanut butter, and icing sugar in a large bowl and mix well, kneading to blend in all the icing sugar. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and shape into ovals Place on wax paper-covered cookie sheets and insert a toothpick into each centre. Put cookie sheet into the freezer for 5-10 minutes. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in a bowl. Dip each peanut butter ball into the chocolate, coating the sides but leaving the top bare. Place on the wax paper, remove the toothpick and smooth over the hole with the back of a spoon. After chocolate has set, store buckeyes in an airtight container in the fridge. Makes 200- 250.This recipe makes 200 or more but you can easily adjust it to the quantity you want. Just remember the ratio of 1:2:3 by weight of butter: peanut butter: icing sugar. For the mathematically challenged that would be 1/4 lb. butter, 1/2 lb. peanut butter and 3/4 lb. icing sugar for a small batch. The amount of melting chocolate can vary depending on who’s doing the dipping and how big a batch you make. If you buy 3 pounds for the full recipe, it will be plenty and you can always find something to do with the leftover chocolate. continued next page

Here’s a few of the recipes we received - keep an eye on upcoming editions of the NOW for more favourite holiday recipes:

HolidayRecipes

From Jeanne Fike, Executive Director of Burnaby Family Life

Champagne Christmas Brunch For the past 36 years, Al and I have hosted Jeanne Fike family and friends for Christmas morning champagne brunch.Truth be known, I’m not really recommending this menu unless you have the luxury of time and patience on your side! There are many easier and less time consuming meals to prepare for a large crowd, such as frittatas or baked soufflé you can pop in the oven overnight and it will be ready to enjoy Christmas morning. No fuss! Delicious! While our menu is rather labour intensive and I have protested every year “this is the LAST year we’re doing this”....there’s something so powerful about tradition, well I just can’t say no. This menu is expected, it’s just not Christmas without eggs benedict, fresh fruit salad, hash browns, bacon and sausages to go with champagne and fresh orange juice for a wonderful Christmas morning!

CELEBRITY SECRETS

We’re usually such a big crowd that we run out of places around the dining room table and have “stair people” – the overflow of folks who end up sitting on the stairs, balancing their laden plates on their laps! Part of our Christmas morning tradition is having a production line with family and friends assembling the eggs benedict, loading the plates and serving the champagne. We usually have two people on fruit salad prep; one person on coffee; one person on hash browns, bacon and sausages, one person pouring the champagne and orange juice. I prepare whatever I can the day before: the “hollandaise” sauce; slice the ham thinly, slice & open the English muffins; line three baking sheets with aluminum foil; set the skillets on the stove top, ready to poach the eggs, and set the table. The tricky part is timing and assembly: heating the ham and English muffins to the right temperature so they won’t dry out; poaching the eggs just right (not over done / not under done) and putting the eggs benedict altogether with the “hollandaise sauce” and dash of Hungarian paprika on top. Artistic presentation with parsley is a must. Hollandaise sauce is an emulsion of egg yolk and butter, usually seasoned with lemon juice, salt, white pepper or cayenne. It is a rich, flavourful and buttery sauce. Not having the skills continued next page

of a French chef and always rushed for time, my “secret and shameless recipe” is using a tried and true basic cheese sauce, seasoned with curry for a substitute! I’m convinced it’s the joy of just being together, the power of the tradition itself, and sharing sacred time that is what really makes this breakfast taste so good – but maybe, could it be? The champagne?! It would cause a revolution at our house to side step this Christmas tradition, but honestly, I recommend an overnight, easy bake frittata! May the peace that passes all understanding descend upon us all. I offer my “Secret and Shameless Basic Cheese Sauce Recipe” as a substitute for hollandaise sauce if you’re preparing eggs benedict.

❆ f

Basic Cheese Sauce

Ingredients: 2.5 cups milk 2 tbsp butter 1/4 c all purpose flour Salt and pepper Sprigs of parsley, bacon bits, 1/2 cup of finely grated mature cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese and a 1/2 tsp of prepared mustard, 2 tsp mild curry powder. Preparation: Warm the milk in a pan over low heat. In a separate pan melt the butter, then stir in the flour and cook gently over the low heat for 1 to 2 minutes to make a roux. Do not allow the roux to brown. Add parsley, bacon, 1/2 cup of finely grated mature cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup of parmesan

cheese and a 1/2 tsp of prepared mustard. Remove the pan from the heat, gradually pour in the milk, stirring constantly to make a smooth sauce. Stop adding milk occasionally and stir vigorously to prevent lumps from forming. Return to the heat and bring to low boil slowly, stirring constantly until the sauce thickens. Simmer gently for a further 3 to 4 minutes until thickened and smooth. Season with salt and ground black pepper to taste. Ladle cheese sauce over warmed English muffins, ham slice, poached egg – with a dash of paprika on top From Derren Lench, Superintendent Operations Officer and Assistant OIC Burnaby Detachment

New Patients Always Welcome!

Top five xmas gifts for pets

We are well and truly into the holiday season – shopping and parties are the entire craze. Our pet pooches and fur-balls also deserve to be part of the holiday spirit of gift-receiving as much as we do. Generally, gift-giving for pets should follow the same principles as gift-giving for people. There are no set rules and what makes us and our pets happy can be very unique and personal. Here is my top 5 from the list of gift options for pets during the festive season: 1. Treats and cookies (or hypoallergenic treats) – Who doesn’t love good food? But remember, pets with allergies or sensitive stomachs may react to just any treats. I usually see most of my allergic patients come in with flare-ups after each holiday season. Select those treats wisely if you have an allergic pet. Do not share your dinner and remember to avoid chocolates, raisins and toxic foods. 2. Annual blood pro!le and a thorough physical exam – while your 4-legged friend might not appreciate the trip to the Vet, ensuring good health is always a good idea. And yes, cats also need annual Veterinarian check-ups to ensure good health, just as dogs do!

3. Pet health insurance – I often hear that our pets get better care than humans, but good veterinary care can be expensive. So, it is good to be prepared. Not every health insurance is right for every pet. Talk to your veterinarian or call a few different Vet insurance companies to find what might get you the best plan.

4431 HASTINGS ST., BURNABY • 604.298.9941 www.northburnabypethospital.com OUR MISSION: To protect and enhance the quality of life for domestic, farm and wild animals in BC

4. Jackets/Booties to keep outdoor pets warm – this may not be the gift for every pet, but the ones that go out often and can carry clothes comfortably will appreciate some winter protection.

ZION ID 285126 8 Year 2 Week old, Neutered Male, Domestic Medium Hair, cross

Sadly Zion was surrendered because his previous owner became too elderly to care for him. He can be a little timid at first, but quickly shows how affectionate he is. He loves outdoor time therefore would need outdoor access. Zion is suited to be the sole pet in the home. Come into Burnaby shelter to meet this fabulous boy!

5. A dental cleaning – most Vet clinics offer dental specials around February every year – sign up for pet dental cleaning for pets that may need one, especially senior pets. Also, make daily tooth brushing time a resolution for the coming year. Our pets are such an integral part of our lives and help bring us happiness and contentment throughout the year, not just during the holiday season. By keeping them healthy, you will definitely make sure you have a happy friend in the long haul. Jangi Bajwa, DVM Hastings Veterinary Hospital, Burnaby

JOEY ID 282104 11 Month 2 Week old , Neutered Male, Rottweiler, cross.

Joey is very loveable and playful. He learns quickly and loves to show you how well he sits. Highly food motivated this will assist in building his confidence with new people, places and things. Come down and meet him!

BUDDY ID 286427 Year 8 Year old , Neutered Male , Rottweiler, cross.

Maxie ID 280663 5 Year 2 Month old , Spayed Female, Domestic Medium Hair, cross.

“Maxie” is marvellous!!! She’s friendly, playful, talkative and affectionate. She does prefer to be a princess so no other pets please. She requires a weight reducing diet and plenty of room to explore, exercise and play in. Maxie has just had her teeth cleaned too, so she has nice pearly whites..

Buddy is a gentle dog but can be nervous meeting new people. He would prefer an experienced owner. He enjoys affection and is very gentle. Buddy loves to play fetch and knows his basic commands. Unfortunately Bud came in with a torn ligament and has surgery booked for Dec.19th so he needs a home for recovery. His forever home!

Take a deep breath, enjoy life in the slow lane CLICK & CLACK TALK CARS Ray & Tom Magliozzi

Dear Tom and Ray: I am 65 and not yet ready to become a “geezerette.” My husband is two years older, and although he may look like one, he is not a geezer yet either. Except when he drives in our university town, that is. He is making me nuts. We have a couple of four-lane main drags in our town with 45-mph speed limits. He drives in the passing lane at 35 with a beatific smile on his face. Last evening, after taking my mother to supper and driving through the same residential neighbourhood we always do, he drove 20 mph and commented, “That house really intrigues me. Hmmm, the

utilities are marked there. That bush has bloomed twice this year.” I was tempted to jump out of the car. We were going so slowly that I probably wouldn’t have been hurt. This issue is not a problem on the highway. He knows exactly how much over the speed limit he can go to not get ticketed. Once in eastern Colorado, he was driving 95 in my BMW. Just to show you the kind of guy he is, this car was his 40th wedding anniversary gift to me. One Saturday, we were going to the farmers, market, and I insisted on driving. When we got home, he said: “Well, you have an extra minute and a half. I hope you do something constructive with it.” Ouch. My husband is a professional guy and still runs a consulting firm, works out several times a week and volunteers in a variety of places. I just don’t want to drive with a geezer and have others perceive him as one!

Help!

– Gayle TOM: I’ve got bad news for you, Gayle. Your husband is a geezer. And before all you geezers write to us and complain, please note that we use the word “geezer” as a term of endearment. Like “knucklehead.” RAY: My brother should know. He’s both. But on the geezer side, his average driving speed has declined from about 42.5 mph to 15 in recent years. TOM: Well, some things change when you get older. RAY: Like the age range for potential dates in your personals ad, which I see you’ve adjusted to “48 to 108.” TOM: Well, I’ve noticed that at some point, my reflexes started slowing down. My eyes don’t notice things quite as quickly, and my brain and body don’t react to them as fast. So, in the interests of

self-protection, my brain has made me drive slower, so things feel manageable. RAY: Yeah. I don’t think he made a conscious decision to slow down; I think his brain did it for him, because it was sending the message that driving faster doesn’t feel safe. TOM: As long as I’m aware of what’s going on around me and I’m not making a traffic hazard of myself (like by going 35 in the passing lane), it’s fine to drive a little slower. RAY: So I don’t think you really want your hubby to speed up, Gayle. Even though he isn’t saying so, I suspect he doesn’t feel safe driving at normal speeds anymore. He even feels unsafe when you’re driving at a higher speed, because it seems much faster to him than it used to. TOM: Why is he fine on the highway? Well, my guess is that highway driving is easier for him. There are no turns in

the road, no crossing or even oncoming traffic, no pedestrians, no parked cars, no bicyclists, no tree limbs. So it’s easier for him to maintain a steady speed without the distractions. RAY: So if you’re convinced that he’s cognitively OK – and it sounds like he is, from the work he’s doing – and you’re convinced that he’s not doing this just to drive you crazy, then you want to check the basics and make sure his eyesight and hearing are where they should be. TOM: If he passes those tests, then he’s just entering geezerdom. Sorry, Gayle – it happens to all of us! Or at least those lucky enough to make it that far. In which case, you have two choices. RAY: One is to take up meditation. That will help you learn to accept life at his new speed. The other is to do the driving yourself when you go out together. TOM: He’s obviously

developing a “stop and smell the roses” philosophy, and maybe you can sell him on the fact that he’ll be freer to enjoy his surroundings since you’ll be watching the road. RAY: Right. That way, he can take note of all the bushes that bloom twice. And all the places where the utilities are marked. Good luck, Gayle. And don’t forget to breathe. ◆ Do you really need that truck if you only make one trip to the lumberyard per year?

We’re continuing with our popular feature – our staff’s Top 5 (Or More) Things To Do This Weekend and this week, there’s a particular focus on what’s happening at our local shopping centres. Get shopping at Brentwood Town Centre, where, with the purchase of $125 in gift cards, you’ll receive a beautiful stemmed filigree candle holder (while quantities last). Brentwood Town Centre is (or more) located at the corner of Willingdon Avenue Things to do and Lougheed Highway, and its anchor this weekend tenants include Sears, Zellers and London Drugs. For more information, go to www. brentwoodtowncentre.com. Get buying at Lougheed Town Centre, where the 12 days of Christmas giveaways come to an end on Dec. 21.

Heritage Christmas: Santa had a special visit with Luca Zanotto, 3, at the

annual open house at Overlynn Mansion. The heritage home was built in 1909, and the event raised $14,000 for Seton Villa, a local seniors’ home.

Open house raises $14,000 Children are poor in this city. Ashley Kim

Do something about it.

contributing writer

The eighth Christmas celebration at the Overlynn Mansion raised approximately $14,000 for Seton Villa, a Burnaby seniors’ home. “This has now become a must-attend event of the Christmas season for Burnaby and all Lower Mainland residents,” said Fran McDougall, executive director of Seton Villa seniors’ retirement centre. The event, held on Nov. 24 and 25, drew a crowd of 1,200, and the majority of the visitors, about 800, were from Burnaby. Admission was by donation, and $5,000 was raised by selling baked goods alone. The money will help pay for upgrades to the emergency call system at Seton Villa. The event featured guided tours through the 1909 mansion, one of the best-preserved heritage mansions in the province. The tours were booked solid, and some people were disappointed to be turned away. “We had such an incredible response,” said McDougall. “It just proves it’s a well-supported event.” The organizers offered door prizes and complimentary apple cider and cookies. McDougall is considering having a similar open house event in the summer due to the high demand this holiday season.

Annual tradition: The Telus Ambassadors, a group of current and former Telus

employees, spend every Christmas season stuffing stockings for charity. Eunice Roberts, Hilliary Simpson, Ross Simpson, and Sharon Yli-Villamo are as busy as elves.

Making spirits bright Ashley Kim

contributing writer

Recently, Telus employees filled up stockings at their Burnaby office for children and seniors throughout Metro Vancouver and Squamish. The demand this year is high, as many families are experiencing economic hardships. “If some children don’t receive (gifts), this may be the only Christmas they get. My wish is that each child gets a good Christmas,” said volunteer Sharon YliVillamo. Every year, the Telus Ambassadors, a group of current and former Telus

employees, cut, sew, decorate and fill the stockings with care. The fabric for the stockings is purchased with money fundraised by the volunteers. Some stockings are filled with necessities, such as toothbrushes and socks, and others are more festive with candy and toys for children. “Some people really get creative,” she said. The annual stocking initiative started as a smallscale project in North Vancouver 30 years ago. The stockings are left out from September to November for the employees to fill. Then the stockings are picked up by

various social agencies: Atira Women’s Resources Society, the Coquitlam school board, Dixon Transition Society, Howe Sound Women’s Centre, and more. The project supports eight agencies, alternating with another eight each year, to help 16 in total. “The employees feel that it’s quite rewarding to know they helped someone (less fortunate),” says YliVillamo.

This holiday season we’re asking everyone to share the responsibility of being the designated driver. Is it your turn to get your family and friends home safely? We want you to enjoy the season with your loved ones and have a great time. If your festivities involve alcohol, here are a few tips to help make sure everyone gets home safely: • If you’re hosting a party, show your appreciation to the designated drivers by serving a variety of non-alcoholic drinks. Try getting creative with “mocktails” – great tasting drinks made without alcohol. As a responsible host, make sure your guests have alternatives to get home safely. Call a cab,

set money aside for transit or if necessary, let your guests stay overnight.

• Plan your safe ride home before you start drinking. If you’re going to drink, choose a designated driver before heading out. If it’s your turn to be the designated driver, be true to your commitment – your friends and family are counting on it. • Use other safe alternatives to get home safely: call a taxi, take transit, use a shuttle service or call a sober friend. • Another option is Operation Red Nose. From November 30 to December 31, if you’ve been drinking or are too tired to drive home, call 1-877604-NOSE and a team of three Operation Red Nose volunteers will help make sure you, your passengers and vehicle get home safely.

Delta down: Burnaby Devils’ Ronin Sakamoto, in black, scored a goal and assisted on another in the under-10 team’s 5-2 victory over the Delta Footmen in Pacific Coast league play at Burnaby Lake Sports Complex-West last Saturday.

Giants split with Cougars Jarid Lukosevicius and Eric Margo both scored two goals to lead the Northwest Giants to a 6-2 win over the Cariboo Cougars in the first game of a two-game B.C. major midget hockey series on Saturday. Lukosevicius sparked a three-goal opening period, tallying his first of the game off the opening faceoff. He scored his second of the game in the middle period as the Giants led 5-0 before the home team was able to reply. Colton Kerfoot and Brandon Del Grosso of New Westminster also registered two-point outings, both counting a goal and an assist. Gavin Gould and Jackson Cressey both chipped in with a pair of helpers for the Giants. The Giants lost the Sunday rubber match 4-0 behind Nathan Warren’s

sixth shutout of the season in the Prince George nets. The win Saturday kept the Giants in first place in the B.C. league at the Christmas break. The Okanagan Rockets moved to within two points of the Giants with back-to-back wins, 7-0 and 7-3, in Kelowna against the Valley West Hawks. Both Okanagan and the Giants have lost just twice this season. Cariboo remained in third place with an 18-6-0 record. The Giants are back at it on Jan. 5 and 6 for a home-and-home series against the Greater Vancouver Canadians. The two teams open the second half of the league schedule at the Burnaby Winter Club on Jan. 5 at 7:45 p.m.

Drop off is also available at the school at 6100 Deer Lake Pkwy on Saturday, Jan. 19 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

The SFU men’s basketball team dropped a 9660 decision to Dominican University of California in a non-conference road game on Monday. Senior guard Matt Raivio led the Clan with 11 points. Two days later, the Clan men lost a heartbreaker in San Francisco, falling 7168 to the Academy of Art University. Milos Milosevic fired a game-high 21 points, including 10 of SFU’s first 14 points. Ibrahim Appiah also reached double figures with 13 points. Anto Olah was the top rebounder with 11 boards. Trailing 36-28 at the half, SFU made a comeback with a pair of three-pointers from Dillion Hamilton. Olah converted a free throw with five minutes left to give SFU its first lead, but the Clan could not hold the advantage.

Holding onto 9th

The SFU women’s basketball team held onto its No. 9 ranking in the latest USA Today Top 25 coaches poll. The Clan women are 2-0 in Great Northwest conference play and 8-1 overall. The poll is comprised of 33 head coaches in NCAA Division II institutions.

ANNOUNCEMENTS 1170

Nov. 14, 1954 - Nov. 22, 2012 It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Scott at the age of 58 in Milpitas, California. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 35 years, Erlinda, son David, daughter-in-law Leea, grandson Nolan and his brother John. Scott is also survived by his much loved pets who he adored. Scott was pre-deceased by his father Norman Bemis and his mother Margaret Guy. Scott was raised in New Westminster, BC where he attended NWSS. His life-time friends will remember Scott as a caring, loyal and fun loving friend. “Boo” as he was known to his friends was an avid hockey player and also played lacrosse with the Salmonbellies organization. He was a lover of cars from his “bread wagon” to his ‘57 Chevy. After graduation he joined the U.S. Navy which took him all over the world. During this time he met and married Erlinda and their son David was born. After his naval career the family settled in Milpitas, California where Scott continued to travel the globe with his new career and made many friends along the way. Scott will be greatly missed and remembered by all who were fortunate to have shared some time with him. Memorial service was held in Palo Alto, California on December 8, 2012. In lieu of flowers a donation to Stand Up To Cancer in memory of Scott would be greatly appreciated.

JUDY KILLEEN • 604-833-8044 Sutton Group – West Coast Realty

Cancer June 21-July 22: Relationships fill the weeks ahead. You might meet your true love. You might experience a growing chasm in your marriage. You might, through struggle and insight, bond more deeply with your spouse. These three possibilities fill the 11 years ahead, and will be highlighted every January. (This year, the emphasis peaks earlier, Dec. 27 to 30.) On other fronts,opportunities/changes arise in business partnerships/associations, relocation, contract negotiations and public dealings. Avoid litigation. Joy, Sunday/Monday. Rest, plan midweek. Charge forth Thursday p.m. onward. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The month ahead brings chores, health issues and duties to dependents. Oh well, just slog through. Eat, dress and sleep healthfully. You might find your duties are changing; some end, others begin, especially around Dec. 27 to 30. (If you need to protest or alter some of these changes, or need to grab any tiger by the tail, do so Dec. 31, when you’re in “winning mode.”) A domestic situation might also be involved. Be ambitious (but reject power-play temptations) Sunday/Monday – success awaits! Socialize midweek: popularity, joy enter. Retreat, rest Thursday to Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: You’ve entered a strong romantic, creative, pleasurable, speculative and child-oriented zone, to last to late January. You face changes in these areas (highlighted Dec. 27-30) – a quick or talkative (and certainly mildly evasive/ shy) person could be involved, could be the “new love.” If so, good – such people represent your future in the relationship zone. These are not dire changes, but good ones, prompting you to open up, to communicate in a different but beneficial way. Wisdom, gentle love for everyone, Sunday/Monday. Be ambitious midweek. Joy, social delights late week!

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Get ambitious. For several weeks, you’ll interface with bosses, parents, authorities (e.g., judges) and VIPs. These people wield the power to change your career and status in life – which are going to change anyway, over this and the next decade. But it’s better, usually, if you make those changes. You might receive a “deep hint” of this late this week and early next. Chase money Sunday/Monday – luck rides with you! Errands, details, paperwork Tuesday/Wednesday: you surprise higher-ups. Head for home Thursday (careful with career, electricity this day) to Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: A gentle, insightful, compassionate mood has stolen over you, and will remain for several weeks. Until late January, plunge into intellectual activities (school, publishing, law, religion, etc.) and travel, cultural venues and love. You shine and attract admirers Sunday/Monday. A love affair with life-mate potential could start – make sure there isn’t a “third party.” Chase money Tuesday/Wednesday – a “surprise” could enliven Christmas Day – drive carefully. Casual friends, siblings, conversations and short trips fill Thursday (careful driving, again) to Saturday. You’re loved! Gemini May 21-June 20: Delve beneath surface appearances; answers lie below. Your sexual, financial instincts rise to the surface during the weeks ahead. Be ethical, avoid extramarital temptations. Many things are changing: health, lifestyle, investments or financial arrangements, tax approaches, perhaps intimate loyalties. Work with these changes – see which way events are flowing, and veer that way. You have a lot of courage in these zones – allowing you, for example, to nudge another into intimacy. Rest, lie low Sunday/Monday. Your energy and charm rise Tuesday/Wednesday – start something important.

Dec. 23 - Dec. 29, 2012

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The month ahead focuses on home, kids, nutrition, real estate, foundations, security and retirement. In late November you faced an “angry day” – it triggered change and friction in this domestic arena, and since, has interfered with an ongoing love affair or marital situation. Now the changes deepen, especially around Dec. 27-30. DON’T move into a new abode, nor begin co-habiting with someone, before this Wednesday. This day ends the “breakup” influence, and starts a loving, romantic one. Secrets, finances lucky early week. Love, wisdom midweek. Ambition, Thursday onward. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The weeks ahead feature errands, short trips, casual friends and siblings, details, reports, paperwork and communications – you handle these well. This is a busy but not important time, so relax. Relationships fill Sunday/ Monday – events go well, but look at the larger picture: are you marching into a subtle trap? Secrets, sensual urges and high finance fill midweek: success mixes with disruptions, so remain alert. Don’t buy high-tech before Wednesday. Until Feb. 1, be gentle at home, contain temper – DON’T buy a new home or move into one. Thursday on, gentle love, wisdom. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Pursue money, buy/sell, chase a sensual link, and rely on your memory for the next four weeks. Trust surface appearances, statements – suspicion or seeking “more depth” will only lead to delay, disappointment (and perhaps a personal rift). Tackle chores Sunday/Monday – you’ll succeed with ease. Relationships brighten Tuesday/Wednesday, but they can also be disrupted – you have to choose between possessiveness/money and pleasure/ romance. Depths arrive Thursday eve to Saturday: investigate. Deep change is slowly coming to your income, up or down. See it, make adjustments.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Your energy, charisma, clout and effectiveness are high, your sense of timing “right on,” this week and the next few. Start important projects, schedule meetings, make contact, ask favours. You’ll impress potential amours – especially Sunday/Monday, when your own romantic urges surge. But in this, and in any creative or speculative venture, be aware, look far down the road: is the present “win” a win forever, or a step toward a larger, subtle dead-end? Tackle chores midweek, but take care with electricity, computers. Relationships arise Thursday onward: be calm, smile. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Weariness arrives. For several weeks, lie low, rest, contemplate and plan. Interface with civil servants, head office, and institutions (including schools, banks). Your inner life is undergoing a long, slow and complete transformation, ending in 2023. But seen from the outside, you are undergoing less change than anyone else. Your home and family, security and retirement zones meet immediate success Sunday/Monday – but ultimate success can prove elusive. Romance lures you Tuesday/Wednesday – it can be a bumpy affair, so proceed cautiously. Tackle chores Thursday onward. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: A quiet, private, deep, serious wish will come true over the four weeks ahead. Your deepest wish could be to understand a longlasting puzzle. For example, say you thought you’d been “deserted” by a father type, while in reality you were undercut by a mother type. If so, you see the truth. In any case, a family member wants to make amends, to heal a rift. You might spy a clue about this Tuesday afternoon/eve. Otherwise, this is a grand time of social delights, happiness, optimism and entertainment. Errands, Monday/Tuesday. Home comforts midweek. Romance, happy kids, Thursday on. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
