Erosion creates flood of concern

Two die in canal, despite rescue efforts

BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

wo people were killed early Wednesday morning when their eastbound SUV left Highway 1 and crashed into the Vedder Canal. Two Mounties were treated for hypothermia and taken to hospital after diving into the canal in an attempt to rescue the vehicle’s occupants. The SUV was approaching the Vedder Canal Bridge around 4:45 a.m. when it failed to navigate the curve, hit a cement barrier and plunged upside down into the water. “Our officers immediately arrived on the scene and two officers entered the water and attempted to get access to the vehicle,” said RCMP Sgt. Peter EB IRST Thiessen. A Chilliwack First reported on man and woman, chilliwacktimes.com both in their 50s, were found in the vehicle when it was pulled from the canal. No other vehicles were involved in the crash, according to Thiessen, and police aren’t sure whether speed or alcohol were factors. No names have been released. The crash is the latest in a series of deadly incidents on the Vedder Canal Bridge. In the last five years, four people have died in the canal. Last year, a Chilliwack truck driver died when his rig plunged off the

Movie-rental outlets like Video Tonite, managed by Becca Leppky and her family, are a diminishing breed. The closure of two chain stores later this month follows the shuttering of two other stores in the past year. BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

arol Murphy saw this coming. For 21 years she has worked in Rogers’ video stores. She saw the transition from VHS to DVDs to Blu-ray. She opened the Rogers outlet in Salish Plaza in 1999. And now, in 2011, she’s closing that same store and liquidating its inventory. “I’ve definitely noticed a change,” she said Tuesday, a week after it was publicly announced that the store was going out of business. “Friday and Saturday nights used to be crazy busy, where we’d have lineups, we’d have two or three tills going.” Now, the only crowds are those that come to pick through the remains of the store’s inventory. Rogers Plus will close its doors on June 19. When it does so, it will be the fourth such video rental outlet to turn off the lights for good. Earlier this year, Movie Tyme, in Sardis, closed shop and a Video Station store on Menzies was shuttered. And on June 18, the downtown Blockbuster outlet will also close. While Netflix, an online service that offers unlimited movies for a monthly fee, has been blamed for some of the industry’s troubles, Murphy doesn’t think it’s the reason that her store is closing.

The digital world means that people simply aren’t paying for content that they can get, legally or not, for free online. That has caused CD stores to close, and now many DVD shops are following suit. Because Rogers doesn’t have a second Chilliwack location, Murphy and her seven employees are left without jobs. “Most of them are taking a little time off,” said Murphy, who’s left considering her own career options. But she doesn’t harbour any resentment against her long-time employer. “Rogers provided me with the opportunity to be a good employer . . . and give people a really good first experience in the work world.” Blockbuster, for its part, went bankrupt in the United States and sold off its Canadian division, was then forced into receivership. The chain is closing 146 locations across the country, including its downtown store. Several private outlets remain in Chilliwack, along with a Blockbuster location in Sardis, but there’s no denying the fact that recent years have not been kind to those in the DVD rental business. Still, not all have given up hope on the industry.

laas and Conny Korthuis live in a jurisdictionally nebulous zone of Chilliwack when it comes to flood protection. The Korthuises and about a dozen neighbours who live and/or own property on the Fraser River side of the dike in the Carey Point area attended Tuesday’s city council meeting to get an update on the spring freshet. And they didn’t like what they heard. “This is not about flooding,” Conny told the Times after the meeting. “This is about losing land and losing crops. It’s about the river changing course and if they don’t do something about this, this following spring we are going to have permanent sloughs and creeks going through all this valuable, valuable farmland.” There are 42 homes and eight industrial operations outside the city’s dike system along with farmland and First Nations communities. The problem for the Korthuises and their neighbours is decades of erosion at Carey Point. Their home and the barns in which where they keep as many as 50,000 chickens are about as close to the Fraser River as any in Chilliwack. And because of riverbank erosion, they are getting closer and closer. “I’d say this year we’ve lost about 1,000 square feet,” Klaas said. “In 12 years we have seen the gravel bars on the north side [of the river] See EROSION, Page 19

This Cooper’s hawk was released last weekend after being nursed back to health by the Delta-based OWL Society.

Healthy hawk released

BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

A

month after an injured Cooper’s hawk was found on the property of a Chilliwack pet grooming business, the bird of prey was released to the wild Saturday. Its health restored after weeks spent at the Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society’s (OWL) Delta facility, the bird flew to freedom without a problem. The bird had made a dramatic recovery since Kathy Pluhowy, a worker at All Creatures Pet Grooming, found the young and not fully grown hawk behind the business’s Yale Road East location. Pluhowy and a co-worker spotted the injured bird on the ground, caught it with a blanket, and took it to a veterinarian’s office, from where it made its

Stint in wildlife rehab helps put Cooper’s hawk back into action way to OWL on May 1. “My boss and I love animals—we work at a pet grooming shop—so we were quite concerned to see this little bird hurt on the ground,” she said. Pluhowy and All Creatures owner Gerri Bracewell were unsure what the problem was, but it was clear that the hawk was in distress. The bird’s wings were actually unhurt, it turns out, according to OWL’s head bird care supervisor, Rob Hope. “When the bird was first found by the finders, it was laying down with its feet clenched,” he said. “That’s usually

a sign of poison.” The inability to perch likely made it impossible for the hawk to hunt and feed itself, hence its low energy and inability to fly away when found by humans. Hope said that the bird was given a proper diet and physiotherapy for its feet, and was then able to perch. “Basically it was just a matter of getting his feet working again,” said Hope. “It’s nice when we can get some that we can put back into the wild, because we get some that can’t go back to the wild.”

in or lose, this year’s run to the Stanley Cup has created fond memories already for many Vancouver Canucks fans. But as far as stories go, the best may come from a quartet of Chilliwack men who turned a night out at a Vancouver bar into a roadtrip to San Jose, drinks with the Canucks’ owner and free lower bowl tickets to Game 5 of the Conference Finals. On May 21, David Vink, Cody Schlamb and Danny Hebert got off work and wanted to go to a Vancouver bar. Their buddy Jared Rempel gave them a lift and dropped them off around 8 p.m. But the atmosphere was lacking and the guys called to ask Rempel to take them to another drinking hole. As they drove across town, however, the plan changed. Someone said they should go to a casino. Rempel said that if they are going to a casino, they might as well go to one across the border. Then Schlamb chimed in with the fateful suggestion that, if they were going to the States, they might as well drive to San Jose for the Canucks game. A Google search put the drive time at around 15 hours. The road trip had begun. The four got to California the next morning, bought four tickets for the day’s game—which started at noon—from someone on

Allen Rogers: The Graduator Recovery Block keeps wayward students on track to earn their Dogwood

BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

C

hilliwack secondary Grade 12 student Arlyn Wyatt makes no bones about it. He “crapped out” on English 11 twice because he hated it and skipped too many classes. The problem is, English (or Communications) is a graduation requirement, and if it weren’t for a new program at his school, Wyatt wouldn’t be graduating on time— or possibly ever. “I would’ve had to come back another year and I probably wouldn’t have,” he said. The program that’s helping him out is called Recovery Block, and it’s allowing him to finish Communications 11 and 12 at the same time in his final semester. CSS launched the program in February because too many students like Wyatt were slipping

Chilliwack secondary school social studies teacher Allen Rogers helps students in Grades 10, 11 and 12 keep on top of graduation requirements through the school’s new Recovery Block program. through cracks and not graduating just because of one of two failed courses. “We assume as potential grads they’ll do what they need to do, but they’re kids, and life gets in the

way,” said CSS vice-principal Paula Gosal. The school used to send students off campus to the Education Centre or Fraser Valley Distance Education to make up missing grad

requirements, but a lot of kids were lost in transition, so the school has come up with a way to help them in house. Grade 10, 11 and 12 students who fail (or look like they’re going

to fail) a grad requirement are now flagged for Recovery Block, where they spend only as much time as they need to get back on track. The point man for the program is social studies teacher Allen Rogers, who, besides having two Recovery Blocks in his teaching assignment, also donates his teacher prep and time at lunch and after school. “I wish we could clone him,” said CSS Parent Advisory Council president Clara Hooper, whose son was in Rogers Civics 11 class last semester. “He prefers to stay under the radar and just do his job, but, as we know, he is going far beyond his job.” To Rogers, however, Recovery Block is a team effort that complements the work already being done by teachers, education assistants and counsellors. And ultimately it’s the students who do the work, he said. Since February, 80 Grade 10, 11 and 12 students have been referred to the program. Fifty-two courses have been completed, and 19 are currently in progress and should be completed by the end of June. According to Rogers, 23 students who had little hope of graduating on time this year are now on track to get their Dogwood if they pass their provincial exams. See ROGERS, Page 11

Christmas Parade gets ‘bah, humbug’ from BIA

S

anta Claus might not be coming to town this season unless someone steps up to organize the popular Christmas parade in downtown Chilliwack. In a May 17 letter, Downtown Chilliwack Business Improvement Association (BIA) president Ken Popove informed Mayor Sharon Gaetz and council that his organization will no longer co-ordinate the December event. The BIA has organized the Christmas parade since 1999 for the city under the Community Development Initiatives Funding Program. Popove told Gaetz that at the May 17 BIA meeting “a motion was put forward and carried ‘that we no longer co-ordinate and host the Christmas Parade in order to focus

our attention on broader multiple day BIA Christmas events.’” Despite not wanting to organize the event, Popove told council the BIA would still “like to continue to see the parade come through the downtown as part of the launch to the Christmas season.” Three years ago, city council increased the city’s contribution for the parade to $7,000, according to a staff report prepared by director of finance Chris Crosman. At Tuesday’s meeting, city council deferred a decision to issue a request for proposals until staff “shakes the bushes” to see if any organization or business might be interested in co-ordinating the parade. Gaetz said she respected the BIA’s decision “even though it does make us a little sad.” Total budget for the 2010 event was $15,000. The BIA said on its website that in 2009 there were 73 floats and 18,000 spectators.

◗ Opinion

Watching only creates losers First off, I feel I need to apologize for the first half of Game 2. I know the Canucks were playing well at the beginning of the game, because when I sat down to watch, the score was 1-0, to the detriment of those dastardly Bruins. In short order, however, I watched the momentum shift to 11 and then very quickly to 2-1. And our beloved Canucks were holding the short end of the hockey stick when, partly due to exasperation and partly due to my general disinterest in NHL hockey, I realized I had other things to do anyway, so I left the television set in order to give the hometown boys the chance they needed. The problem (for the Canucks, not for me) is that, if I watch, they lose. I’ll admit to occasional aberrations in that dictum, but they are rare. If I watch, they lose. It’s not just the Canucks. The Langley Chiefs never won a game under my watchful eye… and I fully expect their successors, the Rivermen, to follow suit. And it’s not just hockey, either. Lions, Jays… if I have the slightest interest in a team winning, it won’t happen if I watch the game. It’s not really a big deal anyway. Truth is, I’m not much of a sports fan. I used to follow Canadian football quite closely in my university days.

BOB GROENEVELD

Be Our Guest But except for a short stint as The Cardiac Kids, back then the Lions were bums. And then the CFL started messing about with a weird attempt at expansion… I doubt I was the only one who lost interest. And I was never so hard-core that I felt like getting back into it when things settled down. I also used to be quite interested in hockey when I was still young and easily impressed by mindless pursuits. But I finally got fed up with pro hockey when I witnessed a travesty between the Canucks and the Atlanta Flames. It was a filthy, dirty bloodfest, with the two teams less concerned about the final score than they were about battling to see which could score the most penalties. I can’t recall what it was or even which team won, but I do recall that they set a league record for the most minutes served in the penalty box in a single game. That’s not hockey. You can turn on the news and watch riots, if that’s the sort of thing that gets your motor running. It was literally years before I

decided to switch on another regular-season hockey game (I did continue to take in the odd playoff game from time to time—and “my team” always lost—including the 1982 “white towel” Canucks squad that I watched fall to the Islanders in four straight, although that was before I realized that I was responsible for their downfall). The regular-season game that I happened to choose to watch for my re-awakening to the wonderful world of hockey fandom was between the Canucks and the Flames. By that time, the Flames had moved to Calgary—and the game I watched broke the penalty records they set the time before. That would have been some time in the mid-1980s, and I don’t believe I’ve watched a complete NHL hockey game, outside of an occasional foray into the playoff season, since. However, I wouldn’t mind seeing the local boys hoist Lord Stanley’s watering bowl. And I’m not sure our Wet Coast storm drains could handle the flood of tears if they don’t. So if I can increase the odds by not watching the last couple of games, it’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make. Besides, if it works, I’ll be helping to put the hockey season to rest sooner. ◗ Bob Groeneveld is editor of the LangleyAdvance.

he first muted alarm bells began going off this week, as reports of “consumer fatigue” began circulating. Apparently, Canadians are not capable, or perhaps simply not willing, to spend the economy back to the stratospheric heights it reached prerecession. Spending growth in the first quarter of the year was the lowest since about 1998. Canada’s economy spent much of the recent decade artificially juiced up. Largely due to the U.S. sub-prime housing boom and the rise of China, money was flowing in from every direction. Asia needed oil, minerals, and lately, lumber. Canada could provide them, prices rose. At the same time, there was a sense that the good times were never going to end. So Canadians spent, and kept spending. And then it all crashed back down to earth. Canada was lucky, relatively speaking. Our recession was not quite as brutal, our housing stock not quite as bubbly, as in the United States. But the three-legged stool our economy was built on—Chinese demand, subprime mortgages, and debt—is still wobbly. During those free-spending years, Canadian household debt reached new, shocking levels. The average Canadian owes $112,000. Debt is growing at more than six per cent a year, while wages are growing at about 4 to 4.5 per cent per year. In December, the level of Canadian household debt exceeded the American level. Yet despite these unsustainable numbers, we’ve got commentators worrying that Canadians will stop spending. Canadians will stop spending eventually, no matter what happens. They can either stop now, pay off the credit cards, and work on saving, or they can stop later—when they go bankrupt. Frankly, we’d rather they slowed down a bit now, even if it does give the economy a bit of a shock.

Judge’s reversal devastates family Editor: Re: $3.2 million award overturned, Chilliwack Times May 31. What a shocking and disgraceful decision by the B.C. Court of Appeal in the case of Cassidy Ediger. I hope all young mothers (and fathers) will realize that any similar case being brought before our justice system in the future will be in jeopardy now that Justice Heather Holmes’ ruling has been overturned by this precedent-setting appeal. It is beyond me how the judges in this appeal case, and Dr. Johnston specifically, can live with their consciences knowing that the appeal ruling condemns Cassidy’s family to continued financial and emotional stress, something they have lived with day in and day out for the past 13 years, and which they will have to face for the rest of their lives. I would also like to point out that even though Cassidy has tremendous challenges, her family has cared lovingly for her at home, along with her two younger brothers, without ever asking for any help. It is a tragedy that our legal system has failed to show compassion and to provide justice to Cassidy and her parents. The family have been let down by the court, and by the insurance company that brought this to appeal. It is truly shameful. Jennie Hasselback Yarrow

Editor: The editorial comments about protracted deliberation is old news. The June 7 Times editorial missed, I believe, a couple of key points about the “speed” of the prosecution of Sidney Robinson. First, Robinson fired five lawyers before he settled on Deanne Gaffur, who it must be noted then spun out the time it took to prosecute the case by being busy with other defence cases on her calendar. The Crown prosecutor’s office was not responsible for any delays in this case

and no blame should be laid at their door. In fact, the government legal services, the RCMP and other support staff were always very well prepared throughout this process. Secondly, why would Robinson or his defence team do anything to speed up the process? While the double time was on the books protracted defences were the norm. Hopefully, now that the new legislation has been passed cancelling this benefit to the criminal population, and once the retroactive offenders that benefit by this system have run their course, new cases will be much speedier in their completion. As a family member you are quite correct in your assumption that I regard the reasons for the sentence to be unjust. Not because I necessarily want Robinson to spend his life behind bars but because I don’t believe he will endeavour to change his behaviour without the strict penalties of the Dangerous Offender designation. He hasn’t changed his behaviour in the past during his many times in prison. Justice Joyce has given Robinson the most lenient sentence he could, given the nature of the crimes this man has committed: rape, robbery, and murder, all at knife-point, all women, in their homes. Coral McFadden, Harrison Hot Springs

They are fees, not taxes Editor: Within Gord Currie’s letter of June 2 are a number of false assertions regarding taxes. There is no eco tax, bat-

tery tax or tire tax as he states. There are fees that are applicable to some of the 12 industry stewardship programs in B.C., tires and batteries included. But these are not a tax paid to government. Those fees are part of the product price for consumer products that fall under the B.C. Recycling Regulation. They are set and collected by industry to fund the take-back programs that some industries are regulated to provide to consumers. Those products are diverted away from municipal waste and recycling systems, thus saving B.C.’s residents the cost of managing the materials through property taxes. It is in fact a user-pay system and diverts thousands of tonnes of resources and potentially toxic materials to safe recycling and disposal at no cost to taxpayers. It is a model now being copied across North America and B.C. is the leader in this field. Brock Macdonald executive director Recycling Council of B.C.

Noted absence of life jacket Re: Front page “Shadow Paddler” photo, June 7 Times. Father and son out on the lake in their dugout canoes, with the six-year-old competing in the Buckskin Single Paddle event. Just one thing bothered me: why does neither of them wear a life jacket? I understand that it would normally be a required piece of safety apparel when on the water, considering, you did say he flipped his canoe. Richard Parent Chilliwack

Editor: Wow! Someone in Sardis Park got lucky in 2010 and sold his home for a lot more that it was worth, did he do his neighbours a favour? Hell, no. The sale was registered to the B.C. Assessment Office 20 miles down the road in Abbotsford. Here, in the assessment office are people who sit behind desks assessing homes by comparing such with houses with fairly much the same description (sites unseen). They then send out an assessment notice in January, stating, “If you have any questions about your 2011 property assessment please call your assessment office,” which in actual fact I did and was told that my home had been assessed an additional $36,000 because a home of the same description had been sold for that amount (site unseen). In late May, I received my 2011 Notice of Current Real Property Taxes, and, lo and behold, my taxes had increased in excess of $220 from the previous year. I ventured down to City Hall to try to obtain some answers and guess what? I was told that it was the responsibility of the assessment office, but that is not quite true. You see the assessment office only assesses the property value (site unseen), but the City of Chilliwack fills in the tax amounts and rates. To make a long story short, the City of Chilliwack property taxes were increased on an average of five per cent, however, we here in Sardis Park were increased by 12.5 per cent. This is quite hard on people that are living on fixed incomes, e.g. government superannuations, Canada Pension and Old Age Security, as the federal government only increased the above by 1.4 per cent—the cost of living index. What is wrong with this picture? Chilliwack found a way to collect the monies required to buy the houses on “Snob Hill” at a cost to the taxpayer of $18 million. Peter J. Lawn Sardis Park

Roger Allen is helping CSS students keep on track for graduation.

who left the school only one or two credits short of earning their Dogwoods. Since February, he has contacted about a dozen and convinced five to come back and work with him to make up the courses they missed. While their stories are encouraging, calling up ex-students has underlined for Rogers how important it is to make sure students have the credits they need before they walk out the door. “Once those students leave our school, it’s very unlikely we’re going to be able to encourage them to come back to finish a course or two,” he said. To keep as many current students on track as possible, the school plans to include Recovery Block in the timetable next year and bring on another teacher for those who need help with math and science requirements. For Rogers, it’s all about giving kids the all opportunities they need to succeed. “I’m a believer in second, third and fourth chances, and if you mess up after your fourth chance, OK, we have to create a fifth.”

hilliwack MLA John Les wants to see an elected Senate and last week he introduced a private member’s bill in the Legislature that would provide a framework to do just that. “Like a lot of other people I have always had a bit of an interest in the Senate and all of its warts,” Les told the Times, adding that from a British Columbia perspective, the Senate is not “equally balanced.” Les said one option could even be to abolish the upper chamber. “Why do we really need a Senate anyway?” Les asked. “But looking at the constitutional reality, that’s next to impossible. So then you’ve got to turn your mind to how do you improve it and electing senators is one way

VIDEO STORE, from page 1 Last year, Don and Rosanne Leppky bought Video Tonite, a private outlet on Menzies. Their daughter, Becca Leppky, helps manage the store. She says that while some people are happy to watch movies online for free, the store has been able to retain many customers. “A lot of our customers are very loyal.They’ve been coming here for many years,” she said,

Loyal customers noting many come at least once a week. And while she sympathizes with the customers and staff of Rogers and Blockbuster, there’s little doubt that the closure of two more downtown video stores bodes well for the Menzies Street business. “It sucks for Blockbuster and Rogers, but it’s definitely going to benefit us,” she said.

One reason the program works, he said, is that it flags kids early, in Grades 10 and 11, so they don’t end up with a bunch of missing requirements in their final year. Just as important, however, is an ongoing shift in the way schools are approaching assessment. Instead of focusing on the number of assignments students churn out, teachers are being trained to focus on what students are learning. “When I went to school if you only handed in four out of 10 assignments, you wouldn’t pass,” said Gosal, “but now if we have students handing in four out of 10, we have to look at those four assignments; how many learning outcomes for the course did they meet? If they’ve met the learning outcomes, is there any real benefit in holding them back and asking them to repeat the course?” In Recovery Block, students aren’t expected to complete every assignment they’ve missed in a grad requirement course; they’re only expected to demonstrate that they’ve met all the learning outcomes. Much of Rogers’ work, therefore, revolves around assessing Recovery Block students and streamlining their assignments to cover only those learning outcomes they haven’t mastered yet. “Once you identify what they need to learn and why they need to learn it, they take ownership,” he said. Keeping current CSS students on track for on-time graduation is the main goal of the Recovery Block program, but Rogers also spends time tracking down ex-CSS students

to start that process.” The proposed Senate Nominee Election Act sets out a process by which potential candidates would submit nomination paper with signatures from at least 1,000 eligible voters. The proposed bill was given first reading and now remains on the order paper until the government gets around to a second reading. Les said the topic came up at the BC Liberal Convention and there was good support from the caucus and from Premier Christy Clark. So why a private member’s bill now? “For now it serves a couple of purposes,” he said. “It stimulates some discussions among British Columbians and it signals clearly to the federal government that we are interested in being involved in Senate reform.”

few years ago I decided to take some steps to become more fit, so I joined a gym and started working out. It was tough at first but after a few months I could see some changes. I felt better, had more energy, got a little stronger and felt I could match anyone head to head in any fitness challenge. I began to think about who I could invite to work out with me. I wanted to impress somebody, show them all my hard effort and leave them gasping for air at the end of the workout. So I invited my 11 year old son. I was confident I could beat him! Plus, I wanted to show him that his old man still had it going. So

No way was he going to be able to keep up to me, after all, I had what it took. Two minutes into the work out he took what I had and ripped it out of my lungs. He barely broke a sweat, handily beating my time as he watched me complete the workout gasping for air. I learned a few things that day. First, 11-year-old boys apparently

All of us struggle with a “God complex” at times in our lives. Our actions demonstrate it by our quest to be in control. We want to control our families, our finances, our careers, our relationships and our future. When we seek to be in control, we’re telling God that we can do a better job than him. Why is that? Why do we think we can do better than God? I know what you’re thinking. If you were God, things would be different, right? There would be no cancer, no divorce, no stealing and no pain.

do not use or have any need for oxygen when they exert energy. Second, I’m not invincible. It’s so easy to deceive ourselves isn’t it? To think we are better than we really are only to discover that we aren’t as strong as we thought we were. As discouraging as that is, it can also be the truth that sets you free. At the end of the day, sometimes you just have to be reminded that “You’re not God!” I know, most people don’t actually go around telling others that they are God, but we are all guilty of believing it.

quakes, Tsunami’s or floods and Chilliwack would definitely have less rain. God knows that about us. He is well aware that we think we can do better. That’s why he uses 11year-old boys to remind us that we’re not invincible. It means that if we want to experience life as it’s meant to be, then we’re going to have to trust God who has a perspective that we don’t. Listen to what God says, “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts. And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine” (Isaiah 55:8). In other words, remember “You’re not God!” Live in the awareness of that truth and you’ll be well on your way to giving up control.

Call your own fouls ULTIMATE, from page 13 haven’t even heard about it,” he said. And to Gardner, a teacher at F.G. Leary Fine Arts elementary, the sport is well worth promoting, especially among youth. Competition is intense, but since there are no officials, players call their own fouls even at the highest international level, and a clear prohibition against contact puts skill at a premium. “It truly is the perfect sport,” said Gardner. “It’s the only sport I can think of that has an underlying philosophy of fair play that supersedes anything else.” Ultimate fans can follow the score of the Art Hawkins Friday and Saturday on Ultimate Canada’s Facebook event page.

With great sadness we announce the passing of Sue Lock, our wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend on her 58th birthday from pancreatic cancer. Sue was born and raised in North Vancouver and came to Chilliwack in 1975. She will be constantly missed by her husband Sandy, sons Rob (Vanessa) and Steve. Grandchildren Christopher, Cody, Cypress, Cassie, and Sage. Brother Garry Dawson, sister-in-law Laurie (Eric) Laughlin. Nieces Jennifer and Alison and nephew Chris. Several cousins, aunt Pat and uncle Rick, and her best friend Kathy. She was predeceased by her parents Pete and Peggy Dawson. Also, many others that Sue called friends. Sue’s strength is a continuing inspiration for others. She cared most about her family and those she was leaving behind and made sure everything was in order. She had a great enthusiasm in all her endeavours. Sue worked in banking for many years. Later she studied floral design and combined her business sense and artistic skills to build a successful flower shop, Fairfield Flowers & Gifts. Sue enjoyed her time with her constant companion Abby, gardening, fishing, golfing, and as a volunteer with the Chilliwack General Hospital Service League. The family wishes to thank the BC Cancer Agency’s Dr. Winston and Laurel, Dr. Oostenbrink and staff at Chilliwack General Hospital Emergency and 3rd Floor, paramedics and a very special thank you Dr. Bull for his care and support.

Pro Tips

10 Point Game Using one golf ball on the practice green, choose a putt up to 20 feet away. Go through your entire putting routine as if you were playing a round on the golf course. If the ball goes in the hole or ends up past the hole by no farther than one putter length, you receive one point. Repeat to other holes until you reach 10 points. Advanced Rule: Once this drill gets easy, try this alteration. If you leave the putt short or hit the putt past one putter length, you lose all accumulated points, and start again at zero. As you are working on these drills, be sure to focus on keeping an even tempo to your putting stroke. By improving your feel for distance control on the green, you are sure to shave a few more strokes off your game. ◗ Jennifer is an LPGA instructor at Bridal Falls Golf Club.

No Peek In this drill, hit a putt without looking to see where the ball ends up. Keep your head down, and ask yourself if the put was “long, short, or just right?” Then take a look to see if you were right. Repeat this drill to multiple targets until your number of “just rights” has improved.

ftentimes when I ask my students what their goals are in taking lessons, they say they want to reduce their handicap by a certain number of strokes. When I ask how they would like to accomplish this, most respond by saying they want to hit the ball farther or straighter. But when I ask how many putts they have per round, I am astonished by how many strokes these students are giving up on the putting green. To continue my series of “Ways to Lower Your Golf Score Without Changing Your Swing,” I encourage you to first look for lost strokes on the green. The dreaded “three putt” usually begins with poor distance control. Focusing on an even-tempo putting stroke is an easy way to improve your feel on the green. Think of your stroke as a pendulum, bringing the club back and through with as even a tempo as possible. Like throwing a ball, trust your eyes, and react to your target. To help manage your distance control on the putting green, try these simple drills.

erosion. Friesen told council such a protective wall would cost approximately $5 million along with ongoing costs to replace material that would slump into a scour hole at Carey Point that extends as deep as 30 metres. “It would be very cost prohibitive and relatively ineffective to provide bank protection,” Friesen said. But Klaas figures the $5 million price tag isn’t too bad considering the city spent $18 million to purchase homes at Panorama Heights in the Eastern Hillsides. “They are sliding down, we are sliding in,” Klaas said. “They were willing to help them but not us.” On Tuesday, the city put out a call for volunteers to help with sandbagging efforts on Wednesday and possibly later to protect the few homes that are threatened from rising waters. ◗ Volunteers are asked to call the Chilliwack Fire Department at 604-792-8713 between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.

increase and that has changed the direction of the river from northwest to southwest eating at the property.” As a result of gravel build-up, the flow of the river has eroded a berm constructed at Carey Point in 1997, which was paid four by the Provincial Emergency Program (PEP). That has led to water flowing overland across farmland. The issue for residents outside the dike is that the city is focused on protecting the vast majority of the population that live within the dike-protected floodplain. Tara Friesen, manager of flood protection infrastructure, explained on Tuesday that the city is the designated diking authority with the responsibility to maintain and protect dikes. Outside the dike system “private property owners . . . are generally responsible for providing flood and erosion protection for their properties.” The Korthuises feel that isn’t fair since they pay municipal taxes. They also aren’t getting much support from the provincial government. “We had a meeting with [Chilliwack MLA] John Les on Friday,” Conny said. “I left that meeting feeling very discouraged and ignored. Nobody wants to take responsibility for the land outside that dike.” At the meeting, Coun. Ken Huttema expressed the unspoken concerns of those in attendance. “It does not leave the residents on that side of the dike a lot of confidence that someone can actually help them,” Huttema said. “The province said they are on their own and it’s our mandate to protect those inside the dike.” Residents in the area would like to see increased gravel removal by the province and a wall erected to protect the bank from further

Evans too noisy

E

ver since the Evans Road interchange was constructed, traffic— and the noise that comes with it—has increased substantially. At Tuesday’s meeting, city council deferred a staff recommendation to pay for $8,500 of a $50,000 sound barrier fence in front of the Cottonwood Retirement Village until a traffic noise policy is developed. In October 2009, the Evans Road interchange was completed and Evans began to be operated as a four-lane road. In August 2010, the city received a complaint from a resident at Cottonwood Retirement Village stating “that they were fed up with the additional traffic noise from Evans Road and TRIP, from page 3 Craigslist and got to the arena 12 minutes before puck drop. After watching Vancouver win, the men headed to a bar filled with celebrating Canucks fans. Not long after, the owner of the Canucks, Francesco Aquilini joined the party. Wi t h Aq u i l i n i g e t t i n g mobbed, the men invited him to join their table. Aquilini, after hearing about the men’s roadtrip, told them there would be tickets waiting for them for Game 5. But soon after, things started to go awry. Hebert, who had been enthusiastically downing drinks, began feeling severely ill and was taken back to the men’s hotel room, and then to hospital by paramedics. That night, Hebert woke around midnight to find himself alone in a strange place. Unable to get a hold of his friends, he surreptitiously left the hospital wearing his hospital gown and walked five miles through San Jose to get back to the hotel. The men then drove back to Vancouver and arrived for Game 5 to find tickets waiting for them. That game would

demanded that the city install a six- to eight-foot-tall sound barrier fence,” according to a staff report. As a result of the complaint, the city hired a consultant who measured sound levels at approximately 65 decibels, a seven-decibel increase from pre-project levels. The report found also that traffic on Evans increased from 5,710 in 2007 to 14,880 in 2010 and heavy truck traffic increased from 1.7 per cent to 3.5 per cent of all traffic. The city has a local improvement policy whereby the city contributes 17 per cent towards the cost of a project such as a sound barrier fence. Coun. Ken Huttema suggested, and council agreed, that the staff recommendation to fund the fence should be referred back to staff until a policy to deal with traffic noise is created.

Cup fever end with the Canucks booking a trip to the Stanley Cup Final. Hebert, meanwhile, sent an email to friends detailing the four’s “legendary” road trip. That email eventually made its way to Deadspin, a major sports website on which Hebert’s first-person account of the entire weekend can be found. The story—with the headline “The Canucks Fan Who Drove 1,000 Miles For A Game, Partied With The Owner, Drank With Beautiful Women, Nearly Died, And Got Comped For Game 5” has since been viewed more than 200,000 times. With cellphone photos as evidence, Rempel told the Times that the story is entirely true. He figures that it’s the over-the-top Hollywood-esque nature of the trip that has attracted such attention although the men’s parents, weren’t 100 per cent impressed with everything that went down. “They thought it was pretty cool that we went there, although I don’t know if our parents were exactly excited with what happened to Danny . . .”

SILVER, from page 7 For that reason, and worried that a hard-headed thief would do something rash if he said he didn’t have the code to his vault, the man kept the combination written on a piece of paper in the house. Then, the afternoon of Feb. 16, as the man finished watching an episode of Dr. Phil, the thieves did arrive. At first, the victim said he played dumb. The response was a punch to the head. “He just plowed me on the left temple,” recalled the victim. “I don’t think I’ve ever received a punch that hard. My head was just... I had a concussion, my ears were ringing and I thought, no, I don’t think I can take too many punches like that.” The man was particularly frightened because the thieves didn’t hide their faces. But after he gave up the combination, the thieves focused on the silver. “They were ruthlessly efficient,” said

the victim. “It seemed to me like he had done this sort of thing before. The moment he broke into my house they frisked me down, grabbed to see if I had my cell phone on me and then, when they put me in my bedroom and tied me up, the first thing the guy did was rip the phone cord out of the wall, so I couldn’t make any contact with anyone. Just various things, they seemed to know what they were doing.” In particular, the ability of the thief to easily access the vault seemed strange to the victim. “It’s very difficult to open my vault,” he said. “I can struggle with it for 20 minutes and finally it will open up, because you’ve got to get the numbers just right. “Well, that guy pushed me aside and opened it on first attempt, so he’s got some involvement with safes before.” Mounties say the thieves may have used a white sedan-type car, like a

Toyota Camry or Pontiac G6. Based on the weight of the silver stolen, the victim is still doubtful whether such a car could have done the job. The weight was likely an issue, however, as the thieves did not steal all the silver. After the thieves tied up the victim, they spent 15 to 20 minutes loading their car with the silver. Every five minutes or so, one man would come to check on the victim. Once the check-ups stopped, the man was able to hop downstairs, free a hand and call police. The victim has spent the past several months considering what he could have done differently and how the news of his silver stash could have gotten out to the theives. “I’m still at a total loss as to which one of my contacts could have been so nefarious,” he said. “Sometimes I lie awake and I wonder if I hear something at the door.”

People

Be proud of your tastes

T

here are people who feel that their food preferences or knowledge may not reflect what is correct or up-to-date in the culinary world. This is completely understandable as there is always an endless supply of information and techniques. This does not mean, however, that one should be ashamed, or be denied of the right, to express their passion for this necessity in our lives. One of the many things that I love about food and food preparation is that I never stop learning. One can never know everything in this industry and I consider it to be one of “the arts” like music or painting. Never can every musical note and lyric, colour and design, or food flavour combination be “used up.” It is literally impossible. No matter how much or little you know, chances are you have preferences in your appreciation of this medium that is both an essential and an indulgent part of our lives. This individuality not only guides you to determine likes or dislikes, but defines you as who you are. Carving a baron of beef in a buffet line-up at a hotel many years ago, I was approached by an elderly woman with an empty plate. As always, I

CHEF DEZ

On Cooking asked the level of doneness preferred. Looking nervous, she whispered, “I know it’s not the right way, but I prefer an extra well-done piece.” So I asked her “what do you enjoy?” and she repeated “extra well-done” with a sense of bewilderment. “If that’s what you enjoy,” I stated to her “how is that the wrong way?” Many people lose sight of this and in the meantime get blackballed by a definition governed by the culinary world. The “textbook” doneness for red meat is mediumrare for optimal flavour, juiciness, and tenderness. This is a merely guideline however, and not meant to overrule one’s preferences. If you don’t enjoy red meat medium-rare, then it is not the right way for you. As long as one seizes opportunities to try new foods and preparation techniques, then there should be nothing wrong with their final individual evaluation. The

culinary world is full of guidelines, but the sooner people realize that these “guidelines” are not necessarily “laws,” the better off everyone will be. Dear Chef Dez: Recently I went to a restaurant and ordered a well-done steak. The server advised me the chef in the kitchen refused to cook my steak of choice to that degree of doneness. What is your opinion? Peter F. Langley Dear Peter: Depending on the cut of steak, most restaurants will fulfill your request. Some however feel that for a top grade cut of beef, cooking it well-done is a waste. It just dries out the optimal flavour and tenderness that a choice cut is expected to offer the consumer. I think the situation should have been handled differently. You should have been advised that the kitchen doesn’t recommend “welldone” for the selection of steak you made, and offer you a different cut. If at this point you still insisted on your original choice, then your request should have been honoured. Send your food/cooking questions to dez@chefdez. com or P.O. Box 2674, Abbotsford, B.C.

ARTHRITIS

Pain free in 2 weeks!

This is what happened to me personally. After suffering for years I desperately tried everything, drugs, natural products,physiotherapy, acupuncture, magnets and nothing was of any real help. Finally I had relief in 2 weeks by taking shark cartilage that was specially processed to preserve the natural active ingredients. This is the kind we are now promoting. I realized then that there are over 50 million men and women that are battling the same illness and getting treatments that are not working well, otherwise we would not have this ongoing huge health problem. In the last 10 years we have helped tens of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. This is a by-product of the food industry.No sharks are caught because of their bones/cartilage. Don’t let anybody #1 confuse you. Nick A. Jerch, President We have real EVIDENCE that it works. On our web site you find over 100’s of testimonials with full names and towns. All 100% true. Skeptics may call them. Here are some examples: ! Doctor suggested knee replacement after all his options failed with drugs and cortisone shots in knee and lower back. I recommend Bell Shark Cartilage to those millions suffering needlessly like I did for 40 years with arthritis in my knees. It's a shame that I was given drugs and injections all these years when a natural medicine could have spared me the endless torture day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON !My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CA!I tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ON!Cancelled knee replacement. I was in pain and limping. Have no more pain now. Can square dance for hours. Anton Melnychuk, Porcupine Plain, SK. We supply EVIDENCE!

Endgame started its 13-episode run in the spring but earlier this month its network, Showcase, announced it was not renewing the show. A couple of fans immediately set up an online petition, as well as a

page on Facebook, to get Showcase to change its mind. Within two days they had more than 700 signatures and shortly after hit the 1,000 mark for the petition, which is at http://petol. org/endgame1. They have also set up an official site at www.saveendgame.com. “I would have to encourage people who are on Facebook to not only sign the petition, but to also come to the page and become active,” says Nikhi Cormier, who helped start the campaign. “Saving Endgame is completely doable, but we, the fans all have to stand together and speak up.” Endgame is set in a ritzy Vancouver hotel where something always

g o e s wrong: murder, burglaries from the safe, hostagetaking. World chess chamFile/TIMES p i o n Arkady Patrick Gallagher, seen here emceeing the open- Balagan ing of the Chilliwack Cul- (played by vetertural Centre. an actor Shawn Doyle) is a hotel resident who turns each mystery into a game. He is the only one capable of

cracking the code, and he’s always several moves ahead of the hotel’s slow-on-the-draw security chief Hugo Lum, played by Gallagher. “A chess player turned gumshoe? It’s hard not to approach Endgame without a dollop of scepticism. The good news is that the series does not dwell on the chess bit,” Scott Stinson wrote in The National Post. “Balagan doesn’t apply chess gambits to his cases, but he does apply smarts.” The fans say ratings within Canada do not tell the whole story. In the case of Endgame, it has attracted viewers from far away, even though the show is not broadcast on regular TV channels and fans have to find other means to watch,

ADVERTISING FEATURE

The Optimist Club of Chilliwack would like to thank the following sponsors for their tremendous support in this year’s Chilliwack Feed the Children Dinner Auction.

SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS IN SMALL CARS

Supported by 96 insurance companies and three insurance funding associations, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is a US-based independent, nonprofit, scientific, and educational organization dedicated to reducing deaths, injuries, and property damage losses caused by motor vehicle crashes. In support Cedric Hughes of this mission, IIHS regularly publishes the results of crash tests it conducts on various vehicle classes. This includes awarding the designation “Top Safety Pick” for vehicles earning the top (‘good’) rating in front, side, rollover, and rear impact evaluations and that have electronic stability control (ESC), — found in an IIHS study to reduce fatal single-vehicle crashes by up to 50 percent and, as a result, now required by government regulation starting with all 2012 model vehicles. In a May 26, 2011 news release, the IIHS reported its latest crash test results for new fuel-efficient ‘small cars’ including hybrids and gasoline-only models. And unlike the results when this class was first tested in the late 90’s, “none… earned a poor rating in any evaluation.” Indeed, said David Zuby, the Institute’s chief research officer, “At a time of high gasoline prices, consumers have never had a bigger selection of small cars that earn Top Safety Pick.” Winners were the 2012 Ford Focus and Honda Civic, and the 2011 Hyundai Elantra, Lexus CT 200h hybrid, Nissan Juke, and Toyota Prius hybrid. The Civic, CT 200h, Elantra, Focus, and Prius have at least one version with a government fuel economy rating of at least 40 mpg [17.01 kpl] on the highway.

THE ROAD RULES Barrister & Solicitor

The Honda CR-Z and Insight, Nissan Versa and Sentra, and Scion xD had ‘acceptable’ ratings in one or more evaluations, which kept them off the Top Safety Pick list. Likewise for the Suzuki SX4, rated ‘marginal’ for rollover and rear protection, and for the Dodge Caliber rated ‘acceptable’ in the rollover test but ‘marginal’ for side protection.

A very special thank you to Mayor Sharon Gaetz for her inspiring keynote address. Thank you to John Young of No Time Flat for his musical entertainment. Thank you to the auctioneer Bill Ellis for his continued support of this worthwhile project. CORPORATE SPONSORS

Crash testing has motivated big improvements in small car safety. “Each time we’ve introduced a new test, automakers have stepped up and improved designs,” Mr. Zuby says. “Now it’s rare for any vehicle to earn less than a good rating in front, side, or rear tests, and automakers are working on rollover protection.” From having the least safety equipment, all small cars now have side airbags and, in all but the Caliber, SX4, and Versa, ESC.

PLATINUM SPONSORS

In 1997, when the IIHS first put small cars through its 40 mph (64 kph) frontal offset test, none of the 11 small cars earned a ‘good’ and 3 were ‘poor’. In 2005, the side test results were no more encouraging — none were ‘good’, and 14 of the 16 models were ‘poor’.

Despite this commendable trend—“more safety in smaller packages”— Mr. Zuby points out, however, “the laws of physics always are in effect for cars,” which means that small, lightweight cars “don’t protect their occupants as well as bigger, heavier ones. …That’s why it’s important that the crashworthiness designs of smaller cars be as good as possible. The new ratings demonstrate that small cars are certainly much safer than they used to be.”

Some viewers go through extreme trouble to find a way to watch an episode outside of Canada,” says Sabrina Thomas, Cormier’s partner in the campaign. For his part, Gallagher is gratified by the fans’ support. “What amazes me is how many people from Europe, the U.S., South America and all over the world are writing in. We didn’t even air outside Canada. We were very proud of it,” he said. Gallagher has had roles on TV shoes such as Glee, DaVinci’s Inquest and Entourage, as well in movies such as Master and Commander, Night at the Museum and Sideways.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Lie low, rest and recuperate. Be thoughtful, plan, seek advice, deal with government agencies or institutions, or corporate head offices. Your charitable and spiritual side remains prominent. Next week, you’re going to burst forth with a blaze of energy, so store it up now. Sunday’s romantic, but anyone who’s attractive Monday morning is also a quarrelsome type – fair warning! Tackle chores and health concerns Monday to Wednesday. Relationships can frustrate you Thursday to suppertime (so don’t pursue new ones) but this night and Friday bring sweet, even passionate harmony! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Wishes can come true! You remain popular, optimistic, happy. Make and accept invitations (but keep them near in time – after June 20 you’ll tire of social involvements). The year ahead is very lucky for career, ambitions, etc. Use Sunday to ground this – to examine and/or shore up your foundations, your platform for launching an ambitious bid. For example, when you’re handling long days and career pressures, a supportive family is a good foundation. Or mapping out the right territory, or lining up allies. Tuesday/Wednesday are romantic, creative – love could reach a sweet climax! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The accent remains on ambition, status, prestige relationships. Show the boss (or parents, etc.) what you can do. Sunday’s great for puttering around the neighbourhood, reading a fat newspaper, calling friends, errands and paperwork. These need a diplomatic (but opportunistic) approach Monday a.m. You reach a climax and an “ending note” in career matters Tuesday/Wednesday – all is well. Perhaps a project matures. Study long-term income and investments Thursday: these will undergo change this decade – safety key. Thursday/Friday are romantic. Chores Saturday – practise safety!

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent continues on paperwork, messaging, errands, travel, news and casual friends. It’s a busy but not important time. Sunday’s full of mysteries and subconscious urges (so is good for seeing within or seeking critical advice). But these – and sex, finances – can meet irritation Monday. Wisdom, a gentle outlook creep in late Monday to late Wednesday – you might spend too much on travel, culture, education or a legal matter, but these things also come to a satisfying climax. Be ambitious Thursday/Friday. You’re popular Saturday, but driving, high tech are erratic. Taurus April 20-May 20: Continue to chase money. Buy sources of knowledge and co-operate with teachers. Relationships flow well Sunday, but they might run into friction Monday a.m. Ignore a financial or sexual decision/idea Monday night – these meet success Tuesday/Wednesday (although you might overspend for an investment). Be careful with ethical or legal “assumptions” (or travel ideas) Thursday to suppertime – the practical reality is far different. These matters flow with superb luck, though, Thursday night to pre-dawn Saturday. Be ambitious – but drive carefully, and forgive computers – Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness continue high. You’ll be given almost anything you ask for – but you need to be aware that asking for a partner, marriage, relocation, litigation or a contract could lead to restriction or unexpected solitude. But these are not necessarily bad. Relative solitude will come anyway, over the year ahead, as a blessing, a healing. Do ask for advice. Take this general attitude for the whole 12 months ahead: that you will, to whatever degree you can, sacrifice your own time/energy to support another (or others). This will bring good results.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Gentle love, understanding, a wide view, far travel, legal affairs, higher education, religion, cultural involvements – the accent continues on these. During the 378 days ahead, you are going to face superb luck in investments, lifestyle changes, sex/intimacy, therapy/healing, and/or research. Use Sunday to see what you already have, and what you accept as true – these are not where your luck lies; these will remain static. Monday morning, a partner’s or competitor’s comment, even if irritating, or a spied opportunity, shows where your luck lies. Romance unpredictable Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Changes are still on the agenda, in lifestyle, commitments, intimacy, finances. But the biggest change involves your relationship sphere: it’s growing splendidly lucky. The year ahead will bring at least two opportunities to marry, form a business partnership, relocate, attract the public (e.g., as clients to your store) – almost all of these have a very beneficial money result! Remember for the past 15 years I kept saying that your true love phase would begin in 2011? This partnership year is part of that. Your energy’s good Sunday. Chase money midweek. Love late Thursday? Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The emphasis remains on relationships,partnerships,opportunities, relocation, negotiation. Remember, this area needs a light touch until late August 2012. Actually marrying or relocating is not a good idea, unless “life brings it” – e.g., your employer transfers you. Depend more on your own efforts, carve out your own destiny, rather than chasing perceived “opportunities.” Lie low, rest Sunday/Monday. Your energy rises nicely midweek. Chase money Thursday/Friday (but expect barriers up to Thursday suppertime). Someone’s sweet, reliable. Travel Saturday – safety first!

(As hinted earlier, perform only necessary work all year; don’t make machinery, chores, health or employment a primary focus.) Soon, fresh air, new opportunities and exciting relationships will enter. The last of these is especially significant, as the 12 months ahead bring splendid romantic openings! The same period creative and speculative luck. Optimistic risk is your friend, especially risk that, if it “wins,” will bring you more responsibility. Joy Sunday. Rest midweek, charge forth Thursday/Friday! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: This is your last week of romance, creativity, pleasure and beauty for awhile – enjoy it while you can. Be ambitious Sunday. Higher-ups are still impatient, temperamental, so be diplomatic, especially Monday morning. Your popularity surges Tuesday/Wednesday! Flirtations, entertainment, optimism abound. A romance could swell to “mad love.” But retreat Thursday/Friday: meditate, contemplate, plan, deal with government agencies, and fulfill obligations. (All these will go better Thursday night and Friday, not before.) Your energy, charisma spring up Saturday – careful driving. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The accent continues on your domestic scene, on security, property, children, retirement, gardening, nature and nutrition. Luxuriate in laziness. Sunday/Monday are wise, gentle – contemplate the why’s, not the how’s. You might feel a tug-o-war between your ambitions and your home (or your tiredness) Tuesday/Wednesday. All’s well, whichever extreme you favour. Your hopes meet barriers Thursday daytime, but this night ad Friday could bring fulfillment, especially to home-related wishes. It’s a splendid time to decorate, landscape. Weariness returns Saturday – rest, plan. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
