Abbotsford council curbs bus service

Holding back the Fraser

Proposed transit route between Abbotsford and Chilliwack too expensive

Sandbags placed around three homes to ward off floodwaters

A

bbotsford city council has put the brakes on a proposed bus route between Abbotsford and Chilliwack in the near future. A BC Transit financial review outlined three possible service options for the route, all of which proved too costly for council to consider subsidizing. All three proposed models had an actual cost per ride of approximately $11, up from the current cost of $3.96 per ride for other routes in the Central Fraser Valley Transit system. The minimum subsidized fare, representing 30 per cent of the ride cost, would be $3.45, close to twice the current fare rate. The standard fares charged for other CFVT bus routes in Abbotsford and Mission are $1.75 for adults and $1.50 for students and seniors. Mayor George Peary noted in addition to the cost barriers, the City of Chilliwack and the University of the Fraser Valley would also have to be brought on board to complete the project. Abbotsford wouldn’t absorb the costs of the route alone, and it See BUS ROUTE, Page 26

We are all Canucks Bandwagon full as cup fever hits city

ick Lovell is a very busy man these days selling some items so popular that his supplier can’t keep up with demand. As the owner of Sports & Stuff at Chilliwack Mall for nearly 10 years, Lovell has never been busier than during the current Vancouver Canucks run for the Stanley Cup. To say this is like Christmas for the retailer would be a gross understatement. “We are very, very busy,” he told the Times Tuesday in between customers. “Busier than Christmas. The Olympics were good too but

nothing like this.” Lovell said his normal February business doubled during the 2010 Olympics but these past weeks he has been about four times as busy as he would be otherwise. And that is with a complete shortage of the most sought after product. Canucks fans in Chilliwack late trying to find a spot on the bandwagon—and an official team jersey to go with it—are out of luck. “Sales of the jerseys has been crazy,” he said. “We are right out of them right now. . . . In the first week we sold 200 and then we started to run out. We could probably sell 50 a day right now.” At Sport Chek at Cottonwood Mall, employee Bailey Obiriek said sales have been brisk for all things Canuck. “This morning my first purchases were all Canucks stuff,” she said

olunteer firefighters have placed sandbags around two Ballam Road homes to protect them from rising water. The Fraser River has eroded its riverbank near Ballam and Kitchen roads, allowing the water to spill its bank, flood farmer’s fields and threaten a pair of homes that lie outside the dikes which protect most of the city. A third home was initially thought to be at risk, but officials have since concluded that it didn’t yet require sandbags. “It’s k i n d o f EB IRST changed direction and it’s hit- First reported on ting against the chilliwacktimes.com riverbank,” city spokesperson Starlee Renton said of the Fraser. While there is not much of a risk of flooding for those homes that lie within the extensive dike system, around 40 homes within the city of Chilliwack—including the two that have been sandbagged—lie outside the dikes. “Those are the ones we’re monitoring and that we’re concerned about,” said Renton. While she said that the city doesn’t normally have the resources

n Diane Janzen’s bid as federal Liberal candidate in ChilliwackFraser Canyon on May 2, she finished a distant third with less than 11 per cent of the vote. But in a party that was decimated in the 2011 federal election, a nearempty cup has to be seen as half full. “During a difficult election, the team in Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon put together a cohesive, well-run local campaign,” said Craig Munroe, president of the Liberal Party of Canada in British Columbia (LPCBC) in a press release issued Tuesday. “Their website, fundraising, social media, tele-forum, Voter ID and advertising

performances caught the attention of several in the party at the national and provincial offices.” The positive spin on a positively disastrous election for the Liberals came as the party hopes for “renewal and rejuvenation” at the B.C. Federal Liberal Council meeting to be held this coming weekend in Harrison Hot Springs. The council is made up of the 36 B.C. riding presidents, the LPCBC executive and the B.C. Caucus. With the retirement of Keith Martin and election losses by Sukh Dhaliwal and Ujjal Dosanjh, the party was left with just two MPs in B.C.: Hedy Fry in Vancouver Centre and Joyce Murray in Vancouver Quadra But the party is trying to remain

positive, pointing out that Janzen was one of only 22 candidates in the country to have gained in votes compared to the 2008 showing. In 2008, Liberal candidate Myra Sweeney received 3,990 votes. In 2011 Janzen received 5,320 votes. (Conservative Mark Strahl won with 28,160 votes and New Democrat Gwen O’Mahony received 12,691.) Local riding president Jeremy Sibley took the compliments from from the federal party in stride. “I am proud of the work of Diane and the local campaign team,” Sibley said in the release. “The riding was successful in swimming upstream. While we would have liked to have seen a different outcome, we are happy to have more support

today than in the past. The challenge now is to begin to re-build the party nationally in order to be able to better meet the needs of Canadians.” Janzen echoed his comments but was more blunt. “The Liberal Party got a hard kick with a cowboy boot on election night and we were certainly on the down-side of a national wave,” she said. “ Yet on the last day of the campaign, a feeling of peace came over me about the local campaign and our team. . . . With the council meeting in our riding, it’s an encouraging sign that the Liberal Party recognizes the importance of rural/suburban ridings like Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon as a vital building block of its future in Western Canada.”

Water has spread to the fields around this and two other Ballam Road homes. FLOOD, from page 1 to sandbag homes that lie outside the protection of the dikes, volunteer firefighters from both Chilliwack and the B.C. forest service were able to provide the manpower necessary to stop the water. Eight thousand sandbags were laid around one house, and 100 around another. “The city’s very appreciative of the volunteers,” said Renton.

8,000 sandbags used The occupants of the basement of the home protected Monday evening have been evacuated and offered help by Emergency Social Services. The city also hopes to apply for financial aid from the Provincial Emergency Program. Renton said that the city is monitor-

ing the situation and waiting for the province’s five-day Fraser River forecast, which could come within the next week. Renton said Wednesday afternoon that the river had risen slightly from the previous day but mild temperatures have forecasters expecting little significant change in water levels.

tudents at East Chilliwack elementary outdid themselves this year raising money for clean water development in Ethiopia. For the past four years the school has been supporting the Abbotsford Run for Water with year-round fundraising efforts and by holding their own run here in Chilliwack. This year, students not only exceeded their $5,000 goal by raising $5,200, they were also awarded an extra $1,000 from Envision Credit Union for raising more money per student than any other participating school and will add that money to the pot. All told, the school has now raised $13,500 through the Water for Ethiopia project over the last four years. “One of the cool things is the kids take it on personally,” said East Chilliwack principal Ruth Neufeld. “They make this their project.” Kids train for the run all year round, and 57 of them completed the 10-km challenge last month.

Central elementary added to summer school sites

T

he Chilliwack school district’s summer learning program is expanding to the north side of the freeway this year. While the majority of the program, which runs from July 4 to July 29, will still be hosted at Vedder middle school, Central elementary will offer one 3Rs on the Move class for kids going into Grade 1. “It is our intention in the next few years to have a north and south campus that offers all Summer Learning programs,” said acting summer school vice-principal Paul Allanson, who is new to the position this year. Other additions to this year’s summer

learning program include two new coursecompletion and preview courses in Math 10: Foundations and Pre-Calculus and Apprenticeship and Workplace Math. Last year, Chilliwack’s summer program enrolled 473 students, but with the addition of the new math classes, Allanson expects more than 500 this year. Courses run from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Students can register for courses at the school board office (8430 Cessna Dr.) on June 27 and 28 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. or June 29 and 30 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

10 B.C. communities at public universities, colleges and institutes—are paid for out of the government’s $500,000 Public Dialogue Fund. During each forum, the yes and no sides will present their views about the HST Referendum in a public meeting format. The goal is to generate informed discussion before the vote. The post-secondary institutions have selected independent representatives to moderate the forums in a nonpartisan way. Friday’s event will be moderated by UFV board chair Rod Thomson. The Abbotsford HST Public Forum takes place June 3 from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at the UFV campus, 33844 King Rd. in B101 Lecture Theatre.

African Mango for Weight Loss

H

ave you heard about the Dr. Oz Just 10 Challenge? It’s a challenge to lose a mere 10 pounds and reap the benefits of lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, and lower your risk of stroke and dementia. Losing 10 pounds can give you so many healthy benefits! But how can you lose that weight? Dr. Oz recommends African mango.

As a part of Dr. Oz’s Just 10 Challenge, Dr. Oz suggests that African mango can help with weight loss because... African mango acts like “a super-potent fibre” that binds to cholesterol and takes it out of your body. Plus, this “fibre is vitally important for every diet ” because it fills you up and helps you to eat less. The African mango is similar to other nuts and seeds in that it is a high-fat nut, but it is also extremely high in fibre. About 14% of the African mango nut is fibre-enriched – which means it’s good for your health, and great for lowering cholesterol. Results of a clinical study show that

the African mango plant contains several properties that can help regulate the metabolism, slow down body fat production and promote weight loss. Researchers published the results of a study which followed overweight adults. Half of the group was the placebo group and the other half was regularly given African mango over ten weeks. Both groups followed equivalent nutrition and physical activity plans. The study’s results showed that the average amount of weight lost equaled about 28 pounds over the study period and unhealthy LDL cholesterol levels were reduced too! Nobody likes to diet, but like Dr. Oz says, even 10 measly pounds provides outstanding health benefits. And with African Bush Mango, losing weight might just be a lot easier!

SPECIAL PRICE REDUCTION ON THESE VEHICLES File/TIMES

It’s a monster ALR issue BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he provincial government is looking for public input on the topic of monster homes in the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR). The issue of homes as large as 8,000square-feet being built on farmland is less pressing in Chilliwack than in places such as Richmond, Delta, Surrey and Abbotsford. “It hasn’t been a problem but we will gladly join in the discussion,” Mayor Sharon Gaetz told the Times Wednesday. The intent of the public comment period is to get feedback on whether size and location limits should be applied to residences in the ALR. Some local governments have attempted to guide residential use in the ALR but Metro Vancouver has asked the provincial government to create provincewide guidelines so the problem is not pushed elsewhere.

Consistency will require legislative changes to the Agricultural Land Commission Act or the creation of a Minister of Agriculture bylaw that would become a standard for local governments. The call for public comment follows a ministry discussion paper on the topic and the consultation involved the completion of an online survey. Questions on the survey include: “Do you support specifying the maximum area of an Agricultural Land Reserve parcel that can be used for residential uses (also known as the footprint)?” The survey also includes a question about the existence of the ALR itself: “The Agricultural Land Commission Act identifies farming as the priority use in the Agricultural Land Reserve. Do you support this policy?” ◗ The survey is open to all British Columbians and respondents are asked to read the discussion paper first. Both are at www.agf.gov.bc.ca. The survey will be open until July 14.

ere I go again, the stodgy old coot pedalling his velocipede down into the past, back to the “good old days”— which, frankly, weren’t really all that great… But on the other hand, any time when you were a kid is likely to have been better than pounding away at your keyboard (not a typewriter anymore—sigh!) at the wrong end of another 14-hour day. Nevertheless, take a ride back with me, will you, to some of the better of those days. I’d like to take you back to the beautiful days of 10-cent Cokes (no, I’m not old enough for a nickel Coke) in those cool greenish-bluetinged bottles. I want to take you back to when it was a neighbourhood event any time a family installed a telephone . . . and when that telephone automatically became a neighbourhood possession . . . for emergencies only (because that was the only good reason for having a telephone, after all). It was a time when using something as precious as a telephone to just “chat” with someone was not only deemed bad taste, it was impolite, and would earn you a bad name. Come back with me to a time when we played marbles with cats’ eyes and steelies and crystal cobs, and we played baseball over at my house, but with sticks… unless maybe the new kid who just moved in down the road might

BOB GROENEVELD

Be Our Guest have a bat—you never know. I want to take you back to the days when the fanciest bike on the block had three speeds—and there was no way your own parents could afford one of those for you. You wanted to go faster? You pedalled faster. And none of those fancy handlebar brakes, if you please. If you wanted to stop, you kicked the pedals back . . . and if you wanted to stop fast, you kicked ’em back and stood on ’em. Hard. That was the way to do some pretty cool tricks, too . . . and a fine way to bust your brakes (something you wouldn’t tell Mom—and certainly not Dad —until they started to wonder why the soles of your sneakers were wearing down so darned fast—the only other way to stop your bike). I want to take you back to warm spring and hot summer days when kids rode their bikes to school, to their friend’s house down the street, or even all the way to the end of the road just for the sheer joy of busting a gut to get up that hill there, and screaming back down again. You could go all the way through an entire summer

back then with virtually no adult supervision . . . and without anyone worrying about whether some sicko might be lurking in wait for unwary children. But I also want to take you back to when kids learned to ride their bikes properly, so that they could get where they were going . . . and back again. Alive, and with no broken bones. Nobody got to school in their Mom’s SUV. Heck. Mom probably couldn’t drive. So it was either walk or ride your bike. I want to take you all the way back to a time when there were bells on the handlebars, or horns. And kids used them to keep from running into pedestrians or their dogs. Or we used clothes pegs to stick a playing card into the spokes for a fine ratatatatatat. Of course, that wasn’t for safety… just to make noise. In those days, bicycle lessons were part of the school curriculum, and the classroom walls were plastered with posters outlining (ad nauseum) the rules of the road, not just for cyclists, but also for the kids who walked to school. “Stop! Look! Listen!” And woe betide any kid who was spied riding – or walking – unsafely within visual range of any teacher! Ahhhh… the good old days. ◗ Bob Groeneveld is editor of the LangleyAdvance.

hen Prime Minister Stephen Harper promised Senate reform, we thought he intended to try and improve it for Canada, not improve upon its use as a Conservative payoff/reward system. Harper’s move to appoint three defeated Tory candidates to the Senate drew howls from opponents—as it should. It’s one thing to appoint retired politicians —those who have gone on to do some good works in their retirement—it’s quite another to take newly defeated candidates and put them in the Senate. Harper had promised to reform the Senate by making it an elected body, and if he was serious about that promise, he would have at least waited until all the election signs had been pulled out of lawns before rewarding his team’s losers. And then there’s the case of defeated Conservative MP Josee Verner, who receives severance of roughly $116,000, and whom Harper immediately appointed to the $132,300 per year Senate posting. Talk about double-dipping. Some pundits have suggested that Harper appointed the defeated Tories to incite the call for reform again, and to get the provinces involved. If he did, there’s certainly easier and less destructive ways of moving reform forward. We understand that previous parties have used the Senate to reward members, and as a guaranteed backup for government policies—but few seem to have used it so quickly or so nakedly for their own interest as Stephen Harper’s Conservatives. The Senate offers lawmakers and the parliamentary system an opportunity to be a force for a judicious, sober second look at legislation—but it is becoming (and perhaps already is) just a parking place for patronage, and consequently, it will continue to be a target for derision and jokes. If the government is serious about reform, it needs to ask the provinces to get Senators on the ballot for the next election. And it needs to lead the movement, not exploit the system for its own benefit.

Pay too much tax

Editor: As a B.C. certified teacher with over 10 years of classroom experience in four different independent schools around the province, I feel that I cannot stand idly by but must challenge Matthew Claxton’s recent opinion piece “Who pays for private schooling?” Schools are funded by tax payer dollars. Parents of students in independent schools are taxpayers. It is their right to have those tax dollars used to educate their children. As it stands, only 35 to 50 percent of their tax dollars slated for education are being used for their children. Where is the rest of the money? The government can use that money freely in the public system. It looks to me like the parents of independent school students are actually the ones subsidizing the pub-

I live in the Chilliwack River Valley, a beautiful, peaceful place and a great place to bring up a family. I was happily walking my dog today since we were able to catch a glimpse of sun and stopped to get my mail and newspapers on the way home. To my chagrin (I actually thought I was going to throw up) there was a big pile of human feces sitting beside the mailbox with Dairy Queen napkins scattered around it. Wow. You know, this is where the children catch the bus. I see a lot of trash and litter on my walks but I have never, ever seen anything so selfish, rude, and inconsiderate. At least crap in the bushes if you can’t hold it anymore, not where people pick up their mail and children. Jodie Ward Chilliwack

lic system. It is private school parents who are paying 100 per cent of capital projects such as new school buildings and improvement on facilities. Imagine if the government had to build additional schools to educate 69,000 more students than right now? Most parents of students in independent schools are not “stinking rich” as the article implies. The parking lots have a fair number of well-used minivans (does Porsche make those?) and most do not have a stash of extra cash. Most families are making huge financial sacrifices to send their children to these schools. The independent schools themselves are challenged with fiscal restraint and many have part-time librarians, shared principals and aging portables. They are not creating a two-tiered education system but rather offering parents a choice, in a free society, as to how and where children should be educated and where at least some of their tax dollars should be spent. Isn’t that what democracy is all about? Linda Klassen Chilliwack

OFF

Editor: We, the people of B.C., pay far too much tax for what we get in return. The HST should never have been put on food of any kind which includes meals at restaurants. The government manager salaries are too high for the competency of performance we get out of them. The high salaries have not kept them working towards the best interests of us Canadians, instead it has been proven time and again they pander to special interest groups interests at the expense of most Canadians. Examples are our crooked B.C. Liberal governments, carbon tax, eco tax, battery tax, tire tax, and the latest HST with another increase of the carbon tax due July, 2011. In addition, the provincial government is trying to force me on what light bulb I should buy. My lifestyle is being lowered due to extra taxes that restrict my enjoyment of life after 58 years of living in B.C. Those of us in the private sector are not getting wage increases to compensate for the added costs. In fact, a lot of us have lost our jobs. Gord Currie Chilliwack

ecently I heard about a British ad campaign brought over to Canada by a B.C. atheist group. The stated goal of this group is to foster “rational thinking rather than superstition” and one way they spread their message is by buying ad spaces on local city buses that read the following “There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.” I thought it would be fun, in the spirit of rational thinking, to examine the two parts of this declaration. Let’s start by talking about subject of probabilities since the statement confidently asserts that there is “probably no God.” We all factor probabilities into our daily decisions but let’s start with a fun example. You don’t need to under-

God, poker and probabilities stand probabilities to play poker, but it certainly helps. I would submit to you that without factoring in the concept of probabilities in your poker decisions, you will probably leave the table with less money than when you arrived. Needless to say, the question of God holds considerably greater stakes for our lives. Hundreds of years ago a brilliant mathematician named Blaise Pascal (remember Pascal’s triangle) sought to factor in the subject of probabilities to eternal questions such as the belief in God. His classic line of thinking, called “Pascal’s Wager” was written because he wanted to deal with the ‘God question’ in a different way than the

exists” outcome. What if they are wrong? The last part of the billboard states that we would all be a lot better off if we simply forgot about God and concentrated on enjoying life instead. Implied in this statement is the thought that the belief in God is what prevents people from experiencing enjoyment and satisfaction in this life. If this was the case, wouldn’t we see that God-believers are the least happy and most miserable in our society? In fact the opposite is the case. Studies consistently show that religion actually seems to bring a greater sense of joy and fulfillment to people’s life. Could it be that these people are experiencing the truth of Jesus’s statement that He

theologians of his day. Pascal’s argument began by saying that every gambler stakes a certainty to gain an uncertainty. The certainty in this belief wager is our lives and the uncertainty represented is the possible outcome of our eternal destiny. The result of this logic led Pascal to some simple conclusions. He put it something like this: One does not know whether God exists (uncertainty). Believing in God is of no consequence if God does not exist. Not believing in God is bad for one’s eternal soul if God does exist. Therefore it is one’s interest to believe in God. Bringing things from Pascal to today, let us look at those who have staked their lives on the “God

would provide “life to the full” for his followers. Isn’t it ironical that those who have bet away their lives do not see themselves as losing anything. Maybe Jesus was right when he said that “those who lose their life for my sake will find it.” Now I realize that this article hasn’t raised the well worn arguments for or against the existence of God. All I wanted today to do was leave you with a simple thought. All of us are making a wager with our lives. You can choose and live your life as if God doesn’t exist. Or you can choose and then pursue a God who promises that he will be found by those who seek him. Today is the day to place the biggest bet of your life.

June gardens take hold

T

he growth surge that hits gardens in June is doubly welcome after so many months of grey skies and cold wet days. Suddenly warmer temperatures are tempting us outside to catch up on everything the spring monsoons have prevented us from doing. Because later plantings tend to catch up to earlier ones, there’s still time to plant seeds of peas, green onions, carrots, lettuce, chard and parsnips. Though it’s still slightly colder than in past years, the first week of June is also good timing for planting seeds of beets, beans, squash, cucumbers and pumpkins. It’s also time to prepare for winter eating by planting seeds of brussel sprouts, kale and broccoli. Tomato, cucumber and pepper transplants should be fine now in an unheated greenhouse or in a sheltered spot against a sunny wall. They need rich nourishment, lots of water and removal of all but two or three sideshoots. Usually the first few side-shoots can produce fruit, but subsequent ones are too late and are best removed. The bud-like scapes of garlic should also be taken out. When young, they’re great in stir-fries. Broad beans need to be checked for black aphids.

ANNE MARRISON

Green Thumb When aphids (and the ants that farm them) appear, the tender bean tops need to be pinched out. Potatoes should have earth hilled up around them as they grow because their shallow roots produce tubers just under or actually on the surface of the soil. If potato tubers are allowed to bask in sunlight the skins green up and develop toxins. Lawn clippings are a great help if they’re used as a mulch in the vegetable garden. A mulched garden needs water less often, weeds don’t start and the clippings add nitrogen. In rural areas the clippings attract birds that scratch them up seeking the earthworms that congregate underneath. But attracting birds is good for the garden— the more birds, the fewer insect pests. Lawn clippings also help activate compost heaps when added in layers just a few inches deep. Deep piles of grass clippings don’t help as much because they tend to block moisture.

Dead-heading is one of the most leisurely June activities. This prevents a lot of weeding later because many lovely flowers volunteer just as enthusiastically as weeds. Rampant self-sowers include oriental poppies, hellebores, Shasta daisies, ladies mantle, lupins and bronze leaf fennel. Hellebores, oriental poppies and bronze leaf fennel seedlings should be removed young because they have tenacious taproots. Any annuals that weren’t planted earlier should be planted now. Seeds for biennials such as Sweet Williams, foxgloves, double daisies and lunaria can be sown and planted out in early fall. As summer continues, roses need a lot of watering, but it should all be directed to the roots. Moisture on the leaves encourages black spot and other fungal diseases. The only exception is when green aphids infest the new shoots—a blast of water knocks them onto the ground where they stay. After shrubs flower, they can be pruned. Some, like mock orange have no problem having up to one third of their branches removed. ◗ Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Send them to her via amarrison@shaw.ca.

Wood provides durability

• Top Soil

ood patio furniture can be a decorative and functional addition to outdoor living. The longevity of the furniture and the upkeep required will depend heavily on the type of wood used in construction. Choosing the right wood based on use and budget can help consumers get more for their money. Many consumers are selecting natural wood patio furniture over resins, plastic and metal options. Although it seems a simple purchase, when faced with the multitude of woods and designs available, shoppers can be easily confused. Learning about the different species of wood commonly used in furniture crafting can make determining why one table is $1,000 and the other is double the price. Pine: Pine is a household name and a common component of many building products and furniture. Pine’s popularity could stem from its availability and affordability. The fact that it is often harvested locally helps keep prices down. Pine as an untreated wood is susceptible to rot and may not be as durable as other woods. Very often pine is pressure-treated to improve its durability and performance. The light color of pine enables it to be stained or painted in a variety of shades. Teak: Another familiar type of wood, teak is resilient, dense and straightgrained, making it a very stable choice for outdoor furniture. Without preservative, teak will weather to a gray color and still remain highly resistant to decay -- even up to 50 years. Thanks to that durability, teak is typically among the more expensive options. Cedar: Cedar is a rapidly renewable resource thanks to it being a quick grower. That can make cedar an attractive choice to those who are interested in going green with their patio furniture choices. Another advantage to cedar is its resistance to weather and insects. Cedar satchels are often used in closets to keep moths and other bugs away. Redwood: Another softwood, redwood is also harvested domestically from the Pacific Northwest, British Columbia and California. Although it is highly resistant to rot and termites, it will need to be protected annually with an oil-based stain, sealer and preserver. Roble: A wood native to South America, roble is a dense, strong and lightweight wood. Darker shades of the wood are more resistant to decay. A preservative oil should be used every six months to maintain its beauty. Jarrah: Another exoticsounding wood, jarrah is

BILL KELLY 604-795-3330 harvested mostly from government-managed forests in Australia. While this wood is naturally resistant to insects and rot, it is also fire-resistant, making it a safe option. It, too, is one of the more durable woods, lasting up to 50 years even without oiling or staining. It is one of the pricier options in outdoor furniture thanks to these properties. Cypress: This is a popular wood for wood garden furniture because it resists decay and cracking very well. Cypress has a distinctive yellowish-red color that many people find attractive, but it can also be painted if desired. Brazilian Cherry: Many people may think of this wood only for kitchen cabinet applications, but Brazilian cherry is dense and naturally weather-resistant. This makes it a fine choice for garden furniture. It is also used in playground equipment and decking. Alder: Alder is a hard wood that is valued for its strength and durability and is related to the birch family. It is appreciated for its honeyhued tone and beauty. Balau: Balau is a very dense wood that is tightly grained and rich in tropical oils and resins. It has been used for shipbuilding, heavyduty furniture and heavy construction and is coveted for its excellent strength and weather-resistant qualities. It is very strong and heavy, making it one of the soughtafter choices in outdoor wood furniture materials, driving up the price. Although many types of wood patio furniture can be kept outdoors and remain durable, it’s recommended that homeowners cover or take in wood furniture when the season ends. This limits the chance of weather-related damage and cuts down on the amount of cleaning and maintenance that may need to be done. Many homeowners find that wood patio furniture provides the beauty and comfort they desire for outdoor entertaining. Very often wood items can be low-maintenance, affordable and environmentally friendly.

Outdoor kitchen check list

A

growing number of homeowners are dining out, and not at a fancy restaurant—but in the comfort of their own backyards. The trend toward outdoor kitchens and dining spaces enables people to head “out to dinner” any time they want. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to have an estate or a seven-figure salary to be able to construct an outdoor kitchen in the yard. The work area can be designed around how much or how little space there is and be customized to different budgets. The outdoor entertaining space is growing in popularity every year. In 2009, the Property and Environment Research Center found that 43 per cent of homeowners in the Northeast United States reported having an outdoor room. In the Midwest, West and South, it’s 32 to 34 per cent. The concept of an outdoor kitchen is nothing new. The outdoor or “summer” kitchen has become a viable component of Mediterranean living for centuries. The heat of the summer drove many people outdoors to shady spots where they could cook on grills or stoves while enjoying a nice breeze. The outdoor kitchen also marries entertaining with meal preparation for the ultimate social occasion. The outdoor kitchen of today can be as intricate or as simple as homeowners desire. There are some elements that can set the space apart, which can be customized depending on design style and budget. ◗ Grill: Instead of a simple grate over some coals, think about investing in a grill that has multipurpose cooking aides. These can include a side burner, a rotisserie turner and various temperature-control features. A grill should boast the conveniences of an indoor range and stove with the added benefit of a grill surface. ◗ Pergola: The outdoor kitchen should be

comfortable, and that means having an area outside of the immediate elements. A pergola or awning can offer a shade source under which cooking is much more agreeable. Plus, you can then install a fan or overhead lighting to the pergola for even more comfort. ◗ Sink: Washing produce or washing up is much easier if there is a sink nearby. The closer the outdoor kitchen is to the actual house, the easier (and less expensive) it will be to run plumbing. ◗ Counters: Whether a butcher block or an expanse of granite, having a work space available for food prep or as a serving surface can make an outdoor kitchen more convenient. ◗ Fireplace: When the weather turns chilly, a fireplace will be a focal point and also a source of warmth. If a fireplace is beyond budget, consider a chiminea or fire pit instead. Placing an outdoor sofa or some reclining chairs by the fire creates an intimate, and cozy place to congregate. ◗ Garden: Herbs and vegetables can grow adjacent to the outdoor kitchen. This enables pick-and-cook possibilities. Also, consider a compost pile or bin in proximity so that scraps can easily be turned into rich fertilizer. ◗ Refrigerator: Some homeowners choose to install a small refrigerator or wine cooler to keep items chilled for use. This helps promote safe cooking and serving practices. ◗ Entertainment: When installing electrical components for lights, consider installing surround-sound speakers that connect to a music player or home theater. Those with larger budgets can explore the options in televisions that can resist some outdoor weather and provide a different ambiance for watching movies. The outdoor kitchen is not a new concept but it’s growing more popular among homeowners.

Thieves target three in Sardis

Paul J. Henderson/TIMES

The local Boston Pizza restaurant is getting into the Stanley Cup spirit with its signage. CANUCKS, from page 1 Wednesday. “People were waiting outside.” But while the store does have replica jerseys—as does Sports & Stuff and Source for Sports—no luck on the authentic jersey the team wears. In fact, you can’t even find a picture of a jersey on Sport Chek’s website. Front and centre in the “fan shop” category are official jerseys for the Canadiens, the Flames, the Leafs, the Oilers, the Senators, the Penguins and, ahem, the team with a bear mascot that shall not be named. As for the Canucks? How about a nice fleece hoodie or a retro logo Tshirt. On Tuesday, customers had very little space to move at Sports & Stuff as racks of Canucks shirts and paraphernalia fillED otherwise open spaces and recently opened cardboard boxes of gear were yet to be thrown away. Lovell told one woman that “a handful” of official jerseys were expected to come in Thursday, and she put her name down to

Sold right out hold one. Even at $130 a pop plus $60 for pro-stitched name and number, they won’t last long. The woman’s daughter asked if he had any Western conference winning hats. “They were sold out before they arrived,” Lovell told her. “They were a hot item.” Jolly Miller waitress Holly Legault was buying T-shirts at the store on Tuesday to wear at work. “It gets us better tips,” she said. “And I have a Canucks pen for people to sign their bills with.” For Lovell, he figures a Stanley Cup victory for the Canucks won’t mean an end to the customers. “Once the Canucks win the cup—when they win the cup—there’s going to be an incredible amount of championship product, so sales are going to continue for months,” he said.

T

hieves targeted three Sardis businesses early Tuesday morning, making off with a cash box containing an undisclosed amount of cash from one of them. Mounties responded to a report of an alarm at a business at 7491 Vedder Rd. There they found that three businesses—Chicken Time Restaurant, First Choice Haircutters and an office owned by Langbroek, Louwerse & Thiessen—were broken into. A cash box from the restaurant was stolen. Nothing was taken from the other two businesses. RCMP forensic officers examined all three scenes. “ T he police need the public’s help to keep their eyes open at night when businesses are closed,” said RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth. “The theft and the damage caused from break and enters not only cost money for business owners, it also causes them grief.”

NEW SPORTS TECHNOLOGY

New golf club’s secret metal may hit too far on some par-4’s. Coating on surface derived from armor-piercing metal used by military. Largest head size allowed. BRAMPTON, ON– A small company in the U.S. has taken the largest head allowed under the Rules of Golf, and souped it up with a coating derived from a once-secret metal developed by the Department of Defense to pierce enemy armor. The coating hits with a force twice as hard as steel, 70% harder than titanium. With that much punch a good golfer by Mike Butler could turn some par-4’s into par-3’s. That’s not what officials had in mind when they set a 460 cc size limit on clubs. Golf officials were trying to restrict distance, and they still are. There is talk of new rules requiring manufacturers to tone down their balls. Good luck. Manufacturers will always push the envelope, and the maker of this club is no exception. Look what it’s done. First, it chooses a club head that goes right to size limit, then it slips in under the radar with a coating that comes from the tips of torpedoes and armor-piercing shells. Nothing wrong here, unless the club provokes a new rule. And it might. Here’s how it performed when a pro and other golfers tested it. 20-40 yards farther One golfer hit seven out of eight shots 20 yards farther with the new club. “I wish I hadn’t just spent $400.00 on mine,” he said. A ten-handicapper, who also plays a $400.00 driver, hit the new club 40 yards farther. He said,

“I’m not doing anything. It seems to swing itself.” Another golfer who had just bought a 460 cc driver (they can cost $400.00 to $500.00) wanted to get his money back. A husky golfer who swings at about 120 MPH actually cracked a ball with it. Another golfer hit five of his seven drives from even to ten yards past shots he hit with his own driver, a $449.00 club. A former PGA pro who played it in California said he had to club-down to a 3-wood on several par-4’s. A 21-time long-ball champion in the U. S. said of the 500 drivers he’s used over twenty years, this one hit farther with less effort than any of them. One golfer begged the company to let him take it with him for a week in California. A low-handicapper curved several shots around imaginary dog legs 220 yards out. The club’s huge sweet spot gave him more room to work the ball from toe to heel. I asked a Director of the company that developed the club, called the Controller® 460, for comments. He lit up. 70% harder than titanium “This is the driver of all time! Tell me how anything can beat this: A driver with a maxed out head and sweet spot, a coating derived from a metal used by the military to pierce enemy armor – steel and titanium are too weak to do that – a clubface twice as hard as steel, 70% harder than titanium, a 45 1/2 inch, 69-gram high-fiber, graphite shaft that cracks through the air like a bull whip. What’s left! Look at those shots! That guy over there will shoot scratch golf. “We’re giving golfers 30 days to play it. If their scores don’t drop big time, they can send it back and we’ll refund its price promptly.” Big drivers hit big shots. That’s why there’s a 460 cc limit. A 460 cc driver with a 70% kicker hits really big shots. The company lets you play the Controller® 460

Local mixed martial arts fighter Jamie Siraj says he is much happier since he chose the sport.

T

h i s Sa t u rd a y, Jamie Siraj will slip between the ropes of the squared ring at the Tz e a c h t e n C o m m u n i t y Centre and try to slam his fist into his opponent while dodging kicks aimed at his head. Siraj is just 16. This will be his third fight. Mixed martial arts is a brutal sport that not infrequently results in blood or knockouts. One way to end a fight is to put an opponent in a “submission,” a hold that is either so painful or potentially injurious that the submitted fighter taps surrender. Siraj lost his last fight because his opponent put him into a “guillotine chokehold” from which he could not escape. Perhaps unsurprisingly, then, Siraj’s parents weren’t exactly thrilled by his choice of sport. “At the beginning they hated it, they didn’t want me fighting at all,” said Siraj. His step-mom Kelly says she and her husband were supportive “with a cautious eye” and were neither for n o r a g a i n s t t h e i r s o n’s chosen sport. But they were definitely wary. Siraj had been getting into trouble and “going down the wrong path fast,” according t o K e l l y. H e n e e d e d something to channel his anger. Mixed martial arts

certainly fit the bill, but Kelly was afraid that he might learn a little too much about fighting. Two years later and Kelly is adamant that she will not watch Siraj fight live. “I think it’s crazy,” she said of MMA. But she credits the sport, and the trainers and other fighters at Revolution Martial Arts, for turning Siraj’s life around.

It’s incredible and it’s really done wonders for him.” Siraj points to his ability to survive and win his first fight as a turning point in how his parents viewed the sport. “After I won my first fight I think it calmed their nerves down a little bit,” he said. “I explained to them it’s just a competition. It’s the same thing as if I were to do soccer See MMA, Page 18

Sports MMA, from page 16 or basketball or hockey. It’s just another sport.” But Kelly points to other things, like how Siraj will now do his homework and carries himself with pride. “I do recognize that athletes give it their all,” she said. “I never really thought of what that meant until watching this kid stay home while his friends cross the street because he can’t hang out and he can’t go party because he has to train. “I couldn’t be any more proud of him.” Siraj also recognizes the changes that MMA has wrought. “I’m a much happier kid than I was a few years ago when I didn’t have this,” he said. “When you’re having a bad day and you go to the gym and you kind of forget about all the big problems you’ve been having, it really just takes you mind off of things. When you leave there you relieve a lot of stress.” Not that Siraj’s chosen sport is stress-free

She can’t watch for all involved. In his first two fights, Siraj scrapped with kickboxers and Saturday will be no different. He says that he prefers “standing up and trading with people,” by which he means exchanging punches. That’s what he’ll be doing this Saturday. Only his father will be in the crowd, cheering him on. Kelly, will be at home, far away from the action. “I can’t watch him get hit,” she said. “I can watch it after, when he’s sitting beside me I can watch the video.” ◗ Siraj will be among more than a dozen fighters taking part in Warpath MMA at the Tzeachten Community Centre June 4, starting at 7 p.m. Doors will open at 4:30 p.m. so that people can watch the Vancouver Canucks game at the centre. Tickets, which start at $30, can be bought at the door.

WATCH OUT FOR THE SELF-DRIVING CAR

Even though, as the New York Observer put it, “It is a truth universally acknowledged that flying by commercial airline is much safer … than driving,” smart statistical comparisons of flying and driving risk challenge this ‘universal truth.’ And common sense dictates what we want to hear from the airline industry in terms of its safety goals.

finder on its roof that scans a 60-metre circle around the vehicle to generate a three dimensional map of its surroundings, a GPS receiver to map the vehicle’s position on Google maps, a front mounted video camera to identify other road users, lane markers and traffic signals, three radar detectors on the front and one on the back to detect Barrister & Solicitor the proximity of other objects on the roadway, a position estimator on the rear wheels to measure the smallest movement of the wheels in order to gauge the vehicle’s position as accurately as possible, and inertial motion sensors on the front and back tires —accelerometers and gyroscopes to determine the velocity and direction of motion.

THE ROAD RULES

Cedric Hughes

Nancy Graham, the director of air navigation for the International Civil Aviation Organization recently repeated it: “We want zero accidents.” Whatever the statistics show, flying feels riskier and we want to be assured that every possible step has been taken to minimize the risk. Driving feels safer than flying. We feel we have at least a reasonable chance of surviving a risk that materializes and much more individual control over the various risks. So when we read that the way to achieve zero accidents on the roads is to wholly automate the driving task, we are almost instinctively, instantly sceptical. And it’s easy to be dismissive of hypothetical ways to achieve ‘unrealistic’ goals. Except that the ‘driverless car’ is no longer a hypothetical. Although the story of Google’s involvement in the development of a self-driving car didn’t come completely ‘out of the blue’, when Google confirmed recently that it has been lobbying in Nevada for legislation permitting self-driving cars to operate legally on public roads and permitting occupants to send text messages while ‘behind the wheel’, suddenly it seemed much less an abstract proposition and even less ‘experimental’. The working prototype is a hybrid vehicle outfitted with the following: a laser range

June 19, 2011

Vancouver,

In the past year, this prototype has been test-driven more than 220,000 kilometers on California roads, including Highway 1 between Los Angeles and San Francisco. In testimony before the Nevada State Assembly on April 7, 2011, Google’s representative promoted the autonomous technology as safer than human drivers, as enabling more fuel-efficiency, and as a potential generator of economic opportunity for the state.

Burnaby Lake

Victoria,

If computers still haven’t completely supplanted the role of commercial airline pilots, it’s unlikely they will soon render drivers wholly unnecessary in the driverless car. But the joke about the ‘big mean dog’ and the pilot in the cockpit may apply sooner than we think: —the pilot there to feed the dog, the dog there to bite the pilot in case he tries to touch anything.

Despite a drubbing on the scoreboard, a Chilliwack bantam player dropped his Victoria opponent hard during Chilliwack minor lacrosse’s 10th annual box lacrosse tournament on the weekend. Bantam A2 takes gold Chilliwack’s Bantam A2 lacrosse squad beat Penninsula 6-4 to win gold in Chilliwack Minor Lacrosse’s 10th anniversary tournament last weekend at Prospera Centre. Because of injuries, the bantams entered the tournament undermanned, with only nine players, but were able to knock off a Vancouver Island squad that boasted a 16-player bench. Clay turns program into gold Chilliwack gymnast Zachary Clay competed in his first national championships as a junior last week in P.E.I. and walked away with gold medal. The 15-year-old, who trains at Twisters Gym in

Jock scraps Abbotsford, captured first place on pommel horse and also narrowly missed the all-around podium, placing fourth. Clay placed fourth on parallel bars and vault. He took seventh place on floor and ninth on rings. His gold on pommel horse in the junior category also earned him a place in the senior category event finals where he placed seventh.

Salute to Agriculture

Happier than a pig in . . . BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he pig is back—bigger, pinker and happier than ever before. After more than 20 years, the Chilliwack Exhibition and Fair unveiled a new logo this week, and front and centre in its design is a gleeful and dynamic cartoon porker. “This is a happy, happy pig,” said fair co-ordinator Nancy Spratt. “Some people think the pig looks almost too happy. I myself think he looks just happy enough.” The new pig, bursting out of the new logo with a bright yellow cob of iconic Chilliwack corn over its shoulder, is a nod to the two-dimensional pig found on the old logo. But the two couldn’t be more un-alike. Unlike his (or her) twodimensional counterpart, for example, the charismatic new porker will soon have a name,

graphic designer Tracy Keen, who also designed the cover for this year’s prize book. “ We l i k e d h e r s t y l e,” said Spratt. “We liked her approach. She seemed to get it as far as colours and country feel.” Besides the pig and the cob of corn, Keen’s design features a large green heart depicting Chilliwack’s strong agricultural base. The logo also does away with the word “exhibition,” w h i c h o rg a n i z ers have nixed from the fair’s web address as well because, according to Spratt, the word is cumbersome, and people coming to the fair already know it includes an exhibition. “‘Fair’ is short, it’s fun, it’s happy, it says it all for us,” she said.

and you can help. On Canada Day, the Chilliwack Exhibition and Fair is launching a name-the-pig contest, and anyone interested in assigning a moniker to the new cob roller can pick up an entry form at the fair’s information booth during the Canada Day celebration at Heritage Park. Forms will also be available at www. chilliwackfair. com after Canada Day. The logo is part of an allaround “wash and brush up” of the fair, according to Spratt. “We’re trying to push the refresh button a bit,” she said. “We’re hoping to showcase the face of agriculture today around Chilliwack.” The logo was designed by

T

he University of Victoria will confer an honorary degree to Sto:lo Nation cultural advisor Albert “Sonny” McHalsie during spring convocation ceremonies. McHalsie—who goes by the traditional name of Naxaxalhts’i—will be bestowed with an Honorary Doctor of Laws at 10 a.m. on June 17 in the University Centre Farquhar Auditorium. McHalsie is well-known in the local Sto:lo community as a leading interpreter of Coast Salish culture. He is known for his skills as an educator, storyteller, historian and leader, and he is an inspiration to students and colleagues. He m ov e s s e a m l e s s l y between the traditional system of teaching and learning, which favours oral transmission of knowledge, and

the academic world, with its emphasis on the written word. McHalsie has reinvigorated interest in the traditions and knowledge within the Sto:lo community and is preserving them through his work with his people and many others who have sought and relied upon his expertise. He served on the editorial board and was an important contributor to the awardwinning book, A Sto:lo-Coast Salish Historical Atlas, which has inspired other Canadian and American First Nations communities to move forward with their own research activities. He is also the co-author along with Keith Thor Carolson of the 1998 book I Am Sto:lo! Katherine explores her heritage.

Flavour shouldn’t come cheap

O

f my cooking classes, Greek is the most popular by far and this stems from my own passion for the flavours of Greece. Almost everyone I talk to loves Greek food and has frequented their local Greek restaurants many times. I joke with people all the time that to create Greek food one basically adds olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, and oregano to anything and it’s Greek. Although these may be common denominators in many Greek recipes, there’s a bit more to it than that to make good Greek food. The most important thing to remember is that ingredients from the source will always taste better in the final dish. Two ingredients that always come to mind are garlic and lemon juice. Garlic should never come from a jar. I see people in stores buying these large jars of peeled, chopped garlic in brine and I question it. The response is usually “it’s cheap and convenient.” Sounds like ‘fast food’ to me. Just because something is cheap and convenient, doesn’t mean we should use it. Take any fresh cut vegetable (or fruit for that matter) and soak it in a jar full of brine—where does the flavour go? It leaches into the

CHEF DEZ

On Cooking brine. So people who take a slotted spoon and add some of this garlic to a dish and say “I’m cooking with garlic.” I respond and say, “No, you’re cooking with a residual, that was once garlic, and now most of the natural flavour has gone into the brine— which you’re going to dump down the drain in a year once you have gotten through that humungous jar.” Many people also willingly pass through the produce section, walking by the lemons, on their way to the juice aisle to grab a bottle of lemon juice . . . again for the same reason: “cheap and convenient.” If you go to a lemon orchard in Florida or Italy, there are no bottles hanging from the trees. A reconstituted juice from concentrate will not give you the same flavour as what’s offered from a fresh lemon. Plus you have the added bonus of reaping the aromatic and colourful zest from the outer peel to utilize as an additional ingredient or beautiful garnish.

We have to remember that the term “cheap and convenient” is not a synonym for “flavour” and if you want your Greek food, or any food, to taste better you need to go to the source of the ingredient you are adding for optimal results. Greek Salad 2 long English cucumbers, diced large 6-8 Roma tomatoes, diced large 1 large yellow pepper, diced large 1 large orange pepper, diced large 1 medium to large red onion, diced large 1 cup Kalamata olives Dressing 1 cup olive oil 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice 3 tbsp red wine vinegar 2 tbsp dried oregano leaves 2 garlic cloves, crushed 2 tbsp sugar Salt and coarsely ground pepper to season Crumbled feta cheese to garnish 1. In a large bowl, toss the vegetables and olives together. 2. In a separate bowl, mix the dressing ingredients well and pour over the salad. Toss to coat. 3. Garnish with crumbled feta cheese and season to taste with salt and pepper.

A match made for those who love theatre W

ith holidays on the horizon and people turning their thoughts to summer fun, Gallery 7 Theatre & Performing Arts is pleased to be presenting Thornton Wilder’s madcap comedy/adventure/romance The Matchmaker to satisfy some of those long-awaited summer delights. “The Matchmaker is a farce with real heart,” says artistic director Ken Hildebrandt. “The characters and the adventures they embark on are great fun. I think this production will be an outstanding way to celebrate the arrival of summer.” Horace Vandergelder, a shrewd and wealthy merchant, has decided to get married. Securing the services of a matchmaker, Vandergelder entrusts his Yonkers shop to the care of his clerks while he heads to New York City in search of love. Tired of their mundane lives and longing for romance, the clerks close up shop and embark on their own adventure to the city. Things really get complicated when they nearly run headlong in to their blustery boss in the city streets. A series of hilarious episodes of hide-and-seek ensue in this farcical adventure that inspired the smash-hit Broadway musical, Hello Dolly! “The very first play I ever recall seeing was a high-school production of The Matchmaker,” recalls Hildebrandt. “I was so intrigued by how the actors could make people respond with laughter. In celebrating 20 years

Cancer June 21-July 22: You’re in a quiet, lowenergy month, but your hopes remain high, and friends still call – those hopes and friends are going to swell over the 12 months ahead, until your popularity reaches a 13-year peak, and your hopes burst into dreams fulfilled! But for now, accept a few weeks of quietude and recuperation. Meditate, contemplate and plan. Be charitable, spiritual, fulfill your obligations and deal with government agencies. Chase money Sunday/Monday. (Buy technology Sunday.) Paperwork, travel and messaging arise Tuesday to Thursday. Home, garden, kids Thursday onward. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Wishes come true this week and next. You’re still dealing with pressures on career, status and ambition fronts. Here, favour towards you continues until Thursday, but impatience and a critical attitude continue until June 20. Be diplomatic and eager to please, because the 12 months ahead can boost your career and status in the world in a lucky way – you could rise to a peak you’ve never achieved before! This influence can also expand problems – so don’t create any with impatience, illwill or (especially) unethical or illegal speech/action now to June 20. All’s good! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The accent lies on career, ambitions, prestige relationships and your status in the community, world. Generally all is well here, and productive, especially Tuesday and Friday (work or schmooze late!) and June 16/17. But your mind continues to contemplate bigger horizons, religious ones, or foreign climes, or intellectual or love matters. These have turned lucky, and will expand luckily over the twelve months ahead. But short-term (until June 20) continue to avoid legal hassles, especially over sexual situations, debt and investments. You succeed midweek! Chase money Friday.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: These weeks are easy but busy, filled with messages, paperwork, details and trips. Romance, pleasure, beauty and a winning streak visit Sunday to Tuesday morning – but don’t gamble with your income or possessions Monday p.m. Work and health concerns call Tuesday noon to early Thursday – plunge in early; your steady approach could trigger a lucky “wind at your back” influence, a bit of cosmic aid. Relationships start sweetly Thursday p.m., but they turn to confusion or misunderstanding this night, then right themselves (perhaps turning to love!) by Friday p.m. Plan accordingly. Taurus April 20-May 20: The emphasis lies on earnings, possessions, rote learning and sensuality. Your energy and charisma levels are good, your effectiveness high. And a cheerfulness about your monetary position in the world is stealing over you. In the 12 months ahead, you can make some excellent investment or financial decisions,can achieve physical gratification, and a partner’s income could improve, perhaps immensely! Your only “scourge” will be the tendency to put on weight (or to be arrogant due to your success). Be restful Sunday/Monday. Romance, pleasure arrive Tuesday p.m. to Thursday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness are tops! Someone who is not free to dally might “befriend” you (quite recently, now or soon) – this could turn into a year-long affair, making you desire marriage. But it’s doomed to disappoint, so remain honest, reject triangles. You will also be befriended by someone “unromantically” – or by an agency. You will be welcomed and aided by governments this year ahead. Start important projects this week. Sunday/Monday bring travel, messaging. Land, home succeed Tuesday/Wednesday. Romance “up and down” Thursday-Saturday – chase it Friday p.m.

Fundraising event to raise funds to become a volunteer chaperone for the African Children’s Choir coming to North America to tour and perform.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The emphasis lies on legalities, religion, far travel, culture (rituals) higher education, broadmindedness, compassion and love. Lingering “threads” (vines) of recent research, sexual (perhaps verboten) attractions, investments, finances and debt, deep health concerns, and lifestyle changes still creep around you. Neither cut these off nor deeply commit to them yet. There is a “partner” in there: but perhaps an illicit one. This whole zone has very recently turned lucky, and will expand or present you with providential opportunities over the twelve months ahead. Stay honest! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The accent lies on depths, mysteries, research, sexual desires, subconscious urges, health diagnosis, dream analysis and occultism, large finances and lifestyle changes. It’s an “all or nothing” time – you either commit, or break off. If hesitating about commitment to someone who’s been around awhile, remember that your true love decade has just begun. A bird in the hand might not be worth two in the bush. Partnerships of all kinds, business and love, meet huge luck in the 12 months ahead – that luck just began last Saturday. Study your future Tuesday p.m. to Thursday a.m. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The emphasis lies on relationships, opportunities and opposition, love and war. Everything’s above board – friends and enemies are open, honest. Relocation might occupy your thoughts – the best, most fortunate time in a quarter-century for this will occur from June 2012 to July 2013 – why rush it? Some “trailing tasks” are a hold-over from May: just complete them. Realize your work and duties will expand greatly over the 12 months ahead – with commensurate rewards. Sunday/Monday are sweet, gentle. Be ambitious midweek. Your hopes, popularity rise Thursday p.m. onward!

June 5 - 11, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: This week and next pile work on your shoulders – and health, diet concerns. That’s OK, nothing you can’t handle; all will flow fairly smoothly. (Take care in both areas Monday and Thursday nights.) Your luck is starting to grow in romantic, creative, pleasurable, speculative and child-oriented zones – it will last until summer 2012. You might neither see nor sense this for a long while, then suddenly, an event occurs. Be open, ready – and innocent enough to believe! Sunday/Monday bring secrets and money decisions. Midweek’s gentle, wise. Be ambitious Thursday night onward! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The focus lies on romance, creative ventures, art, beauty, pleasure, vacation, risk and speculation, and child-oriented projects. But these are nothing compared to the huge year-long streak of the same that will arrive by mid-2012 – one that will fulfill a major life-wish! Prepare for that time by building a secure platform psychologically, emotionally and in concrete terms (e.g., buy a house).Your luck in real estate, domesticity, with children, security, retirement, gardening, Mother Nature – will reach a decade high from June 22, 2011 to mid-June , 2012. Don’t start early! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The emphasis lies on your home, security, children, nourishment, on Mother Nature, retirement, endings and beginnings. A minor new phase or project might begin in these areas midweek. Usually this phase (late May to late June) creates a restful, sluggish mood designed to give you a mid-year rejuvenation. But this time a lot of errands, trips, visits, calls and paperwork keep you busy. June 4 starts a year in which your career will involve a lot of running around and communicating. Romance disappoints Friday, flows smoothly Saturday. One met before Friday isn’t compatible. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
