More buses, more often for city

Transit buses along the Yale/Vedder corridor could run as frequently as every 20 minutes as soon as this year, according to a presentation Chilliwack city council heard Monday. “[This will be] just a really fantastic level of services and it makes it really easy to use,” said Michelle Orfield, senior urban transporta-

tion planner for BC Transit. An express bus service between Abbotsford and Chilliwack could also be implemented as early as the end of 2012. Orfield was at council Monday to present an update to the so-called Transit Future Plan for Chilliwack, which was begun in spring 2011. There was a period of public consultation followed by a draft

implementation strategy, which will again go out for public consultation in late February to early March. Much of the data used by BC Transit for the study come from a 2008 travel diary. BC Transit found that the largest number of daily trips within the region was 90,400 from Abbotsford to Metro Vancouver, mostly Sur-

rey. There were 17,900 trips to that region daily from Chilliwack. From Chilliwack, there were 6,800 daily trips to Kent-Harrison, 4,800 trips to Mission, and 27,200 to Abbotsford. “An obvious connection that might be missing is Abbotsford to Chilliwack,” Orfield told council. The Abbotsford-to-Chilliwack connection will become more

important for University of the Fraser Valley students, according to some instructors. With the core of the kinesiology department moving to Chilliwack, for example, even more students will have to take courses at both campuses. The Chilliwack-to-Abbotsford trips account for 14 per cent of Chilliwack work commuting patterns, compared to four per cent to See TRANSIT, Page 5

hilliwack residents are more than three times more likely than the average British Columbian to be licenced to grow or possess medical marijuana, according to Health Canada numbers obtained by the Times. According to the figures, which were released after an Access to Information request, 193 Chilliwack residents are licenced to produce marijuana for medical purposes and 238 people are licenced to possess it for medical reasons. That’s more than three times more than the provincial rates for medical marijuana growing and possession. There are 3,831 licenced growers and 4,608 licenced users in all of British Columbia. That translates to 84.9 growers and 102.1 users per 100,000 people. But Chilliwack, with a population of 69,217 people, has 278.8 growers and 343.8 users 100,000 resiperson can smoke per dents. 78,000 joints in a By comparison, Abbotsford, year.” which has 50,000 Mayor Sharon Gaetz m o r e p e o p l e than Chilliwack, has just 122 licenced growers and 131 licenced users. Those numbers are in line with the provincial average. For several years, Mayor Sharon Gaetz has been outspoken about the prevalence of medical marijuana grow ops in Chilliwack and has often questioned their legitimacy. But while staff had told her that they believed there were hundreds of medical marijuana grow ops in the city, she told the Times the city did not have specific numbers. Gaetz says the Health Canada numbers show the city has a right to be concerned about the prevalence of medical grow ops. And she said the numbers are evidence not all medical marijuana grow-ops are law-abiding. “I think it confirms our suspicion that the grow-ops are not entirely legitimate.” Gaetz speculated the operators of formerly illegal grow-ops have acquired medical mari-

juana licences in order to legitimize their business. She said city inspectors recently visited a medical marijuana grow op with 120 lights and the legal ability to produce 78,000 joints. “Obviously, no one person can smoke 78,000 joints in a year,” she said. And she was alarmed by the higher-thanaverage rate of medical marijuana possession licences issued in the city. “ We c a n’t have that many more sick people in Chilliwack.” But a local doctor who prescribes pot to patients said the number of licenced medical marijuana users is being kept artificially low in Chilliwack and elsewhere because physicians are scared of the impact doing so could have on their careers. Dr. Gwyllyn Godard said he believes thousands of people who use marijuana to alleviate medical problems do so illegally because they don’t have access to a prescribing doctor.

Godard said doctors a re a f ra i d o f being targeted by medical marijuana opponents and having their licences revoked. “The thing any physician is scared of, everywhere in Canada, is loss of their licences,” he said. While speaking to the Times, Godard said he was wary about quantifying the number of marijuana prescriptions he has written, but previously he told CBC that it exceeded 100. He did tell the Times that his client list included RCMP members, veterans and even “high-level city employees.” Godard is a member of Stop The Violence BC, an anti-pot-prohibition advocacy group comprising academics, physicians and lawyers See MARIJUANA, Page 4

J

ohn Martin was acclaimed as the BC Conservative Party (BCCP) candidate for Chilliwack-Hope on Tuesday evening. BCCPleaderJohnCummins also appointed the University of the Fraser Valley criminology professor as justice critic in the party’s shadow cabinet. The Tories also held a meeting for the Port MoodyCoquitlam byelection at which Christine Clarke was acclaimed. “I am delighted to appoint John Martin as the BC Conservative Party’s justice critic and Christine Clarke as our critic for municipal affairs and transit,” said Cummins in a press release issued Wednesday morning. “John and Christine are excellent candidates and will be holding the Liberal government to account in their new roles.” Martin’s justice critic role means he will shadow the ministries of the solicitor general and attorney general. “This Liberal government has failed British Columbians on the justice file,” said Mar-

tin. “They have starved the justice system and now thousands of criminal prosecutions could be thrown out.” For the BC Liberals, Conservative MP Chuck Strahl’s former chief of staff, Laurie Throness, announced his intention to seek the nomination for the riding on Jan. 10. Throness is the sole candidate and will likely be acclaimed at the BC Liberals nomination meeting Feb. 4. The BC NDP will battle it out for the Chilliwack-Hope nomination on Saturday. Former candidate Gwen O’Mahony is vying for the nomination against Kathleen Stephany, a former BC Coroner and nursing professor, and Dennis Adamson, current Fraser Valley Regional District director for Area B. O’Mahony has received an endorsement from Harry Lali, NDP MLA for Fraser-Nicola. “Gwen is an honest individual with great poise and debating skills and will make an excellent MLA,” Lali said in a written statement. “Gwen works extremely hard and has consistently stood up for her community on local issues, whether it was fighting the HST, another Tory or

That meeting is Jan. 28 at 1 p.m. at the Mt. Cheam Lion’s Club Hall. No date has been set for a byelection in ChilliwackHope but one is required to be called by early July. A byelection needs to be called in Port Moody-Coquitlam by March, and Premier Christy Clark has said it made sense to call them at the same time.

Maple Ridge man accused of trying to extort $500,000 out of his uncle threw in the towel halfway through his trial and pleaded guilty to a pair of charges last week. A.K., who can’t be named because of a ban on the publication of any information that might identify the victim of the plot, pleaded guilty to one count of extortion and one count of the possession of heroin. He will be sentenced at a later date. The hasty guilty plea came midway through his week-long trial and immediately after Crown counsel played a video showing A.K. at a Langley restaurant at the same time as a threatening call was made to his uncle. Earlier in the trial, the court heard from A.K.’s accomplice in the extortion, Shane Werner, who admitted to making phone calls. Werner told the court that he and A.K. agreed to threaten A.K.’s uncle, K.K. with harm unless he paid half a million dollars. K.K., who operates several businesses in Chilliwack, quickly contacted police. MARIJUANA, from page 3 whose work was endorsed in November by a quartet of former Vancouver mayors. While the City of Chilliwack and Gaetz have long focused on the risks they say are associated with the production of marijuana in homes, Godard said efforts to limit homegrown medical pot inevitably stem from the antipathy towards marijuana among conservatives. Gaetz has been at the fore of a push to get Health Canada, which regulates medical marijuana, to revise regulations on where plants

Having Trouble

Police traced the first call to a Maple Ridge telephone number. They then asked K.K. whether he knew anybody in that area. K.K. told Mounties his nephew operated a gas station in the city but was also known to have a drug problem. (Werner—who sold cocaine and other drugs to make money for his own habit— told the court he was A.K.’s drug dealer.) Mounties proceeded to set up wiretaps and video surveillance on the pair, who put their plan into motion in September of 2009. In one call, Werner tells K.K.: “Have your money ready for tomorrow or else I’m going to take out your family.” But unbeknownst to the extortionists, police were recording calls and counselling K.K. When Werner was finally told—falsely—that the money was ready to be delivered, police were in fact closing in on him and his accomplice. They were arrested in a Langley cul-de-sac. An assortment of drugs were found in the vehicle. While Werner told the court last week that the drugs were his, K.K. still pleaded guilty to one drug charge. Two other drug charges and charges of conspiracy to commit an indictable offence will likely be stayed.

can legally be grown. Godard is wary about such laws and said people should be allowed to grow a “few plants” for personal use. But he did agree marijuana probably shouldn’t be grown on a large scale in homes. “I think if they’re going to do large-scale production, like designated growing for other people, that should maybe be done in commercial facilities.”

Cost unclear

FRENCH, from page 1

TRANSIT, from page 1 Langley, three per cent to Kent-Harrison, and three per cent to Surrey. But 68 per cent of Chilliwack trips are inside the city, which is why improving transit frequency and routes will be the priority, according to Orfield. Existing transit service in Chilliwack is hourly on most routes from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., with limited or no Sunday service hours. The “near future” implementation strategy includes every-20-minute weekday service along Vedder/Yale roads from Vedder Crossing to Five Corners. There will be a 30-minute frequency service in a Chilliwack loop that goes from city hall at the south, Broadway to the east, Fairfield Island to the north, and the Landing area to the west. Sardis and Evans Road routes would run every 60 minutes. In phase one of the implementation strategy those Evans and Sardis routes would be reduced to every 30 minutes and the Vedder/Yale line would run every 15 minutes. Eventually the plan calls for 20minute service on Evans, more restructured local service, increased service to Abbotsford and AgassizHarrison, as well as the introduction of Hope connector. How much all of this will cost is still unclear, as cost recovery for transit in Chilliwack is just 26.5 per cent from an annual ridership of 491,400.

tress can be really hard on you. When your body is stressed, it automatically responds by activating the adrenal glands, turning some adrenal hormones “on” and others “off”. Cortisol, which increases the blood sugar for brain and muscle energy, gets turned “on” as well as adrenalin. This increases your metabolic and heart beat, redirecting blood to the muscles, heart, liver and brain for enhanced physical strength and performance. Once the stress is gone, Cortisol and adrenalin should turn “off”, but chronic stress can leave them “on” all the time. This prevents you from recovering properly and can cause cellular damage, blood sugar problems and adrenal exhaustion. The consequences of stress on the body are wide-reaching. Symptoms of stress can include digestive upsets, ulcers, migraines, diminished sex drive, restlessness or fatigue, frequent colds and muscle aches.

They aren’t heard nearly enough.” Trustee Silvia Dyck, meanwhile, argued that learning a second language early in life leads to enhanced brain development and that languages are important in a global society. “The interest in one language will feed the interest in another,” she said. Trustee Walt Krahn also spoke in favour of the study and exhorted district staff to get an accurate assessment of parents’ interest. Some parents have raised concerns that the district’s earlier attempts to gauge interest were flawed. “Let’s make this very public,” said Krahn, “and let’s determine a very authentic count.” Meanwhile, trustee Doug McKay, who attended the meeting from Arizona via video link, wanted to know who at the district office would have time to undertake the study when administrators are already busy with extra duties because of the teacher job action. Superintendent Michael Audet said the district would reorganize some senior level staff to free up personnel for the work. “I can’t give a date to it, but hopefully very shortly,” said Audet. As per the motion, staff will complete the study no later than November 2012— a less than ideal timeframe for some parents. “I’m disappointed about that,” said Lisa Patterson after Tuesday’s meeting. “I have a five-year-old in kindergarten right now, and I want it to start in September, but I understand the situation because of the job action.”

probably an act of“political suicide,” trustee Barry Neufeld voted against the plan. “I’m just not convinced that French immersion is where we should be spending our money,” he said in an interview after the meeting. “I think it costs too much for the benefits that it produces. It’s elitist, it’s really expensive and to get enough children together, they can’t offer all the electives that kids enjoy when they’re going through high school.” Neufeld argued he had yet to see hard data on the benefits of French immersion and said the Ministry of Education should do more to track the graduation rates, post-secondary education and career success of French immersion students. “I’ve heard lots of rumours that it stimulates kids or gives them greater employment,” he said. “There’s a lot of popular belief in that, but the hard scientific research, I haven’t seen it.” Neufeld added that the school district’s late Grade-6-to-12 immersion program has been “patchwork” and that it would take more than the results of the feasibility study to convince him that the benefits of an new early immersion program would outweigh the costs. Forstbauer shrugged his shoulders when asked about Neufeld comments. “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks, I guess,” he said. “Everbody’s entitled to their opinion. That’s why it’s not one trustee. That’s why there’s seven of them.” Several trustees spoke out in favour of the motion. For trustees Heather Maahs and Martha Wiens, the most important issue was the district’s responsibility to parents. “I think the strongest argument is that the parents have asked for this,” said

heam Golf Centre will reopen under old management after a court allowed the course’s operator his one and only mulligan. The golf course was closed in November after the city, which owns the land, served notice that it was revoking Bogey Enterprises’ lease. At the time, city was owed nearly $40,000 in back rent and taxes. A city official told the Times that it assumed the operator was insolvent and would never be able to pay up. According to a city press release, Bogey Enterprises and operator Earl Francis will have their 22-year-old lease reinstated, but the city will recover all of its costs associated with terminating the lease. The court ruled that the city will receive about $60,000 plus its legal costs. A city staffer told the Times that

Cheam Golf Centre will reopen “as soon as weather and ground conditions permit.” civil law allows leaseholder a single “relief of forfeiture.” That allows the leaseholder to avoid forfeiting his lease, provided he or she makes financial amends. A court will not grant a second relief of forfeiture, if the leaseholder falls behind on rent or taxes again. The staffer said the city hopes that will keep Bogey Enterprises paying its rent and taxes on time. The closing of the course had members fuming at management, who had been peddling “early bird”

memberships just weeks before. According to the city, Francis “has committed to opening the course as soon as weather and ground conditions permit” and will honour all memberships sold for the upcoming golf season. Ed Dube, who bought his membership for the upcoming season in November and spoke angrily about Francis when the course closed that month, said he is pleased to be able to golf at Cheam again this year. “Cheam is just the right size and

layout,” he said. Still, he says the sudden closure of the course in November still resonates. “You kind of pay your memberships dues and that’s the end of it and that’s the normal way of life. Now you’ve got to be a little more hesitant at handing over the dough.” Dube was hoping the course would be managed by a new operator. Nevertheless, he said: “It will be alright. We’re golfing not socializing with them.”

former minor baseball standout is the first Chilliwack man charged with participating in last year’s Stanley Cup riot. The Vancouver Police Department announced that eight more suspected rioters, including Joshua Pharand, a 19-year-old Chilliwack resident, were facing charges stemming from last June’s mayhem. Pharand has been charged with participating in a riot and two counts of mischief. In 2009 and 2010, Pharand was a star for the Chilliwack Cougars midget AAA. In June 2010, a year before the riot, the Chilliwack senior secondary grad was one of three local players invited to a camp from which the best ball players in B.C. would be selected to play in a national tournament.

‘Natural person’ defence doesn’t work with justice

Couple failed to pay more than $1 million in taxes BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

A

Chilliwack businessman who advised students that payment of tax is tantamount to slavery, but is also voluntary, was convicted last week on a slew of tax evasion charges. B.C. Supreme Court Justice Elliott Myers found Russell Porisky and his common-law wife Elaine Gould guilty of failing to pay taxes on $1,127,185 of income the couple earned from operating Paradigm Education Group, a company that urged students to operate as “natural persons.” Porisky was also convicted of not remitting $66,133 of GST, and of counselling his students to commit fraud. Por isky and Gould represented themselves at trial, but Myers found their natural person argument lacked “logic, coherence and consistency.” In his judgment, Myers stated: “The law has long recognised the distinction between a natural person and an artificial person, such as a corporation . . . However, Mr. Porisky twists that into something that the law does not recognise.” Myers sur veyed Por isky’s teaching material. Students were told: paying tax is voluntary; the tax system is an illusion; the underground economy is not illegal; payment of tax is a form of slavery; the tax system contravenes the “Bill of Rights”; and

that it was unlikely that anyone following the Paradigm system would be prosecuted, much less convicted, of tax evasion. During the trial, as he prepared to testify from the witness stand, Porisky asked Myers: “which person, in the eyes of the law am I?” Myers replied: “You are Mr. Porisky.” Porisky:” “Am I Russell Anthony Porisky in my inherent personality as a natural person, or am I a sovereign-granted personality.” Myers: “You’re Russell Porisky.” Porisky: “That’s fairly misleading because that’s not clear enough for me.” Myers then asked Porisky: “Let’s assume you get into the stand . . . and the Crown asks you, ‘What did you have for breakfast today?’ Would it make a difference as to what capacity you were in?” To which Porisky replied: “For me it would, Your Honour, yes.” In his decision, Myers dismissed all Porisky’s arguments. He began: “When I express my opinion of Mr. Porisky’s argument and the Paradigm view . . . I do not mean any disrespect to him.” But he quickly demolishes the natural person argument. “Mr. Porisky’s theory not only does not bear any legal logic but it also fails to accord with common sense. “It is a failed attempt at word magic and has no validity.” Later, he notes: “Mr. Porisky’s analysis picks and chooses snippets from various statutes and cases, and attempts to create logical links where none exist. It is, in effect, legal numerology.” Myers will decide on a sentence for Porisky and Gould at a later date.

espite being forced by my parents to take lunch hour lessons before it was offered in school, and despite taking courses right up until Grade 12, I don’t speak French. I know a lot of words, can conjugate a few verbs but I can’t carry on a conversation. It’s with that caveat, and that my wife is French-Canadian and we want our two-year-old daughter to have as much exposure to Canada’s “other” language as possible, that I consider early French immersion. I applaud the Chilliwack school board’s decision to commission a study into the feasiblity of early French immersion. But this motion was passed six votes to one. Trustee Barry Neufeld voted against it, calling French immersion “elitist,” of no benefit to students, and something that segregates students. The first matter is worth ignoring, but the second is just wrong. The third also makes no sense since parents who want French immersion now have to really segregate their kids in another district. Not wanting to do a feasability study about something that is broadly accepted in education circles as beneficial is a little like creationists who don’t want to look at fossils lest they learn the world wasn’t created 4,000 years ago. Maybe Neufeld is part of the

PAUL J. HENDERSON

SimplyA Musing Newt Gingrich fan club? Gingrich is, of course, the candidate for the Republican presidential nomination who attacked his running mate for, gasp, speaking French. Neufeld said Tuesday he “long opposed French immersion.” But before the Nov. 19 election, I sent an email to all 24 school board candidates asking on behalf of my wife, as a voter, a simple question: “Do you support French immersion starting at Kindergarten and what will you do to make this happen in the Chilliwack school district?” Neufeld said “I am cautiously supportive of French immersion on ideological grounds. First of all, it is a valid choice in Education, and I believe parents need choice if they are to continue to support Public Education.” He went from “cautiously supportive” to “long opposed” in two short months. In November, he did also say he had some reservations based on cost and this sense that French immersion students will be social pariahs. He ended his missive to me

this way: “If I am elected, I will work to: 1. Monitor the progress of French immersion students from kindergarten to Grade 12. “2. Lobby the Federal Government through our local Member of Parliament to cut back on their obsession with hunting down and destroying terrorists and criminals and start investing in our own children.” O-o-o-K there Barry. There are many studies that have shown the cognitive benefits of French immersion, that Neufeld has wilfully, or otherwise, ignored. Even Provincial FSA results show that children in French immersion in Grades 4 and 7 fare better than the average of all students in reading comprehension, writing and numeracy. Luckily Neufeld is the only trustee who voted the way he did and, whatever the result, parents of children who want French immersion will get a fair shake. Nine years ago, Neufeld was caught sleeping at a school board meeting. His colleagues and some parents who attended meetings said it wasn’t the first time and even he conceded “it has happened.” With decisions and comments such as the ones he made on Tuesday night, maybe next time something important comes up that he knows nothing about, Neufeld should have a “bon gros dodo” instead.

No surprises here. B.C. public school teachers want a raise. And while some may label their bargaining proposal a hefty one and others may call it modest—it really doesn’t matter because it’s a non-starter. Do teachers honestly believe that the government will hand out pay increases totalling more than 15 per cent over three years? And, yes, we realize that the first numbers thrown out at a bargaining table are just to get the ball rolling—but, in the arena of public opinion, this proposal will gain them few allies. This will only increase the perception that teachers are out of touch with the current financial reality most parents face. Parents are already getting impatient with the lack of report cards and stymied fundraising projects. While we believe most parents want to support teachers, hefty wage demands will further erode that support. Teachers in B.C. may not be paid as much as teachers in Ontario, but fortunately or unfortunately, supply and demand still impacts wages, and there is a glut of teachers in B.C. In addition, two-thirds of B.C. public employees, including CUPE school support staff, have signed contracts agreeing to zero wage increases. The government cannot boost teachers’ wages without triggering raises for other employees. Frankly, teachers would be better advised to turn up the heat on abandoned discussions on class size and composition. The government broke off talks on those issues at the end of November and has managed to virtually escape responsibility for its actions. Class size is an issue that impacts all students, and no matter how much you pay a teacher, one teacher cannot properly teach overflowing classes.

News Local accountant charged with failing to file tax return A Chilliwack accountant who bills himself as a tax specialist has been charged with failing to comply with the Income Tax Act. Robin Tymm was scheduled to make his first appearance in Chilliwack Provincial Court Tuesday to face four counts of breaching the Income Tax Act. Tymm is alleged to have failed to file corporate income tax returns for 2005, 2007, 2008 and 2009, after being notified last March. Tymm lists himself online as a chartered accountant and “tax specialist” who also specializes in estate planning and owner-managed businesses. He operates out of a Yale Road office.

hile the City of Chilliwack spends more than $25 million on policing, council has rejected a request for $3,000 of additional funding for a program with a track record of stopping young offenders from reoffending. The Chilliwack Restorative Justice and Youth Advocacy Association’s (CRJYAA) request for $34,500 for 2012 was denied by council Tuesday. Instead, all six councillors, along with Mayor Sharon Gaetz, agreed with a staff recommendation to maintain the program’s current level of funding. The city had provided $31,500 in 2010 and 2011. It will do so again in 2012. The restorative justice program brings young offenders and their victims together outside the court system. It allows youth to pay restitution for their crimes. The city provides about 40 per Plenty of buzz for spelling bee Chilliwack’s spelling bee, ChillSpell hits the G.W. Graham theatre Tuesday, Jan. 31.

cent of CRJYAA’s funding. Each year, the city spends 800 times more—$25,566,750, or 29 per cent of the city’s total budget—on policing. The city also provides space, utilities and office supplies to the group, which operates out of the city-owned Community Policing Society Office on Wellington Ave. The restorative justice association doesn’t need the money badly, however. A staff report notes that the organization has a surplus of $96,385, representing more than one year’s operating expenses. It also has no pending capital needs. Gaetz told the Times the surplus was one of the reasons the city didn’t give the program more money this year. “It’s difficult for the city, when we’re trying to be very careful of how we’re spending money, to give additional money unless the need is really demonstrated,” she said. “It certainly doesn’t mean that in any way we would undervalue the work of the organization. They’re doing extremely well.”

School briefs run from 3:30 to 5:15 p.m. City councillor Sue Attrill, school trustee Walt Krahn and Ed Kaye of Waterstone Law will be on hand to judge.

In i t s a p p l i c a t i o n t o c o u n c i l , restorative justice executive director Kim McLandress noted a 2003 study that showed a recidivism rate of just 17 per cent, compared to 43 per cent of youth handed through the court system. The program has expanded dramatically in recent years. In 2010, it opened 214 files, compared to 159 the previous year. Gaetz attributed its success both to the commitment of volunteers and participating businesses, and to the non-profit’s ability to fundraise independently. The CRJYAA’s bike sale is a major fundraiser and the organization also hosts the local Operation Red Nose. “I think part of why they are doing so well is they really think outside the box as far as fundraising goes,” said Gaetz. She said the city continues to pressure the B.C. government to ante up with funding for the program, which she said takes money off the provincial court system.

VanderBeek back on her boards

Will decide after second run if she will race

BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

hilliwack alpine ski racer Kelly VanderBeek moved one step closer to an international comeback this week. More than two years after demolishing her left knee in a trainingrun crash less than two months before the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, the 29-year-old former Olympian and World Cup medallist finished a World Cup training run in St. Moritz, Switzerland Wednesday. With a time of 1:53.35, VanderBeek came in 60th place and is scheduled to hit the course for a second training run early Thursday morning (no time was available by press time). The time is a far cry from runs in the past that have earned the Canadian speed queen three World Cup podiums and got her within a hair’s breadth (0.03 seconds) of the super-G podium at the 2006 Turin Olympics, but it’s all part VanderBeek’s painstaking recovery, which has now taken 26 months. “The last three or four months is

consider racing in the World Cup downhill Saturday. Since the new year her knee, which sustained tears to the anterior and posterior cruciate, and medial collateral ligaments as well as micro-fractures through the knee cap and patella groove in the 2009 crash, has taken a turn for the better, and she feels there’s no better place to test it under race conditions than St. Moritz, a hill she’s raced nearly 60 times in her career. “I always love it here—there is a part of me that feels like I’m coming home when I arrive in this valley,” she posted on Twitter after arriving in St. Moritz Tuesday. While pushing her knee on a World Cup course presents risks, VanderBeek said she’s ready, and her husband, Olympic slalom kayaker David Ford (who is currently training in Australia in advance of Olympic qualifying in Brazil in March) agrees. “I am extremely excited for Kelly,” said Ford in an email to the Times. “She is a racer at heart and being on the sidelines the last two years has been extremely difficult for her. Obviously the return to competition will be done slowly and with great care for her knee, but to be back on the circuit and preparing to race is where she belongs right now.” – with files from Terry Bell, The Province

CMHA accepts bodychecking ban BY IAN AUSTIN Postmedia News

H

ouse-league hitting will be a thing of the past next season for young Chilliwack hockey players. Citing studies that show triple the injuries in leagues where there is bodychecking, three-quarters of Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey Association (PCAHA) members voted to eliminate hitting in the “fun” levels of hockey. Bodychecking will still be allowed at the “rep” level played by the most advanced young players. The PCAHA is the governing body for the Chilliwack Minor Hockey Association. While the face of professional hockey, Sidney Crosby, languishes for months on the sidelines with a concussion, PCAHA’s Fraser Valley East managing director Alison Niezen said the vote’s results probably reflected concerns about the dangers of bodychecking. “The majority of recreation or ‘house’ hockey players are not going to play junior or professional hockey when they move on from minor hockey—they will

play on a body-contact college team or men’s recreational team,” Niezen told the Times, via email. “When you take that into consideration it seems unwise to subject them to that risk in their prime developmental years.” Hockey parent Bill Veenstra said ultimately the mounting medical evidence is what ruled the day. “The medical journals have shown that adding backchecking triples the risk of injury,” said Veenstra, president of the Vancouver Thunderbird Minor Hockey Association. “That’s hard to ignore.” Cory Silbernagel, who coaches a peewee hockey team in Chilliwack, agreed and heartily approved of the decision. “In my opinion, it’s a great thing,” he said. Silbernagel is in his fourth year of coaching hockey, but this is his first coaching at the peewee level, the age at which bodychecking has been introduced. He told the Times that bodychecking creates fear in a game that most house-level players play for fun. “Kids are scared to go into the corner

and hit and get hit,” he said. Peewee house hockey boasts a range of players—from those who might be able to make a rep team, to those who can barely skate. Silbernagel said removing bodychecking should reduce the number of players scared away from the game by violent collisions. Body contact will still be allowed— “You can still stand that guy up,” notes Silbernagel—but actively hitting another player will now be a punishable offence. “I think it makes it a lot more fun,” said Silbernagel. The PCAHA handed out background materials to prepare its members for the vote. Among the most telling was a comparative study of peewee hockey in Alberta, where there is bodychecking, and in Quebec, where bodychecking is banned. “The study concluded that, among 11-to-12-year-old ice hockey players . . . a three-fold increased risk of all gamerelated injuries and the categories of concussions, severe injury and severe concussion.” - with files from Tyler Olsen, Chilliwack Times

Looking to young guns BASKETBALL, from page 12 it’s always going to be a physical, emotionally intense game.” Graves and Mauro are both predicting a close game right to the buzzer. CSS will be looking to Grade 12 student Gary McCrea, a strong and physical power forward, to score. “If we can hold him to around 15 points we will have a good chance of coming out on top in the game,” said Graves. But McCrea will get plenty of backup from the rest of the Storm starting five, Zach

Fleming, Eric Neels, Brendan Janz and Mitch Wierks, according to Mauro.

The Falcons will be looking to their young guns, Grade 10s HaydenLejeuneand EricRogers, but Graves also expects players like Logan Rogers and Jason Kroeker to step up during Friday’s game. “Our edge over Chilliwack is our depth and ability for other players to come up big on any given night,” he said. “We have twice hit nine three pointers in a game and if we can get that type of shooting performance from several of our guard players we will be in a good spot.” Correspondingly, Mauro said his team has an edge on the inside game. Who will win? Neither coach would venture a guess. “You will know when the buzzer sounds at the end,” said Mauro. “It should be a close game.”

Chiefs join Literacy Challenge

T

he City Wide Literacy Challenge starts next week and the Chiefs organization is excited to be partnering in this community initiative. You can win great prizes and all you have to do is read 20 minutes a day for 21 days and track that with the passports that are available at various locations including the ChilliwackTimes (see page 21 in this edition for a passport), The Book Man and the Chiefs office. If you don’t have a book to read, then I am going to try and help with that by offering you some books that members of the Chiefs have enjoyed. Let’s begin with one of the toughest and most popular Chiefs of all time: current assistant coach Brandon Fleenor, who recalls reading the Cat in the Hat as a kid and loving every Dr. Seuss word ever written. As an adult he says he enjoys Anne Rice books, with Interview with the Vampire, a 1973 novel, at the top of his list. No surprise that Jacob Bestebroer, who eats, breathes and talks hockey as much as anyone west of the Rockies, got his start by reading The Stanley Cup, a book which he received for Christmas as a seven year old.

BARRY DOUGLAS

Chiefs Insider For those older, his choice is Gross Misconduct, the Alan Eagleson story. Strength and conditioning coach Paul Nicolls’s go-to book is The Power of Focus, by Jack Canfield. He says it is a great read for anyone trying to be better in life, at work, in sports or family life. When Paul was a youngster, Peter Puck, was a common bedtime story. Assistant Coach Doug Ast gives props to The Majors, by John Feinstein. The book is about the four major golf championships. As a kid he enjoyed Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, by Roald Dahl, and the Hardy Boys. Without hesitation, head coach and general manager Harvey Smyl told me his all time favourite book is Unbroken, by Laura Hillenbrand, which is a story of survival, resilience and redemptions. With his recommendation, I am in the midst of reading Unbroken and must admit it is riveting thus far. As for Harvey, as a youngster he remembers

his parents reading Dr. Seuss books like One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish and Green Eggs and Ham. Office Manager Andrea Laycock goes with Choosing To Smile, a story of three local cancer survivors and how they faced the challenges life presented to them both preand post-cancer diagnosis. Asked her favourite as a kid, she said: “Sleeping Beauty, I even have the book still!” President Glen Ringdal’s choice is Good to Great, by Jim Collins. It tells how vision, passion and teamwork can yield spectacular results in business and life. As a youngster, the book Blackboard Jungle by Ed McBain brings back fond memories for Glen. As for myself, Unbroken could turn out as number one, with Seal Team Geronimo not far behind. A cherished memory for me was reading the Screech Owls series of hockey-based books to my son Darnell. Regarding the Chiefs players favourite books, check the Chiefs facebook page next week or follow the Chiefs on twitter @ chiefs_hockey. Who knows, maybe next season we can start a Chiefs book club. ◗ Barry Douglas is the sales and marketing manager for the Chilliwack Chiefs

Faith Today

The dreaded statement . . .

“I

t is with great sadness, that we announce the passing of . . . .” You’ve read the statement before and it struck you because this time it was someone you knew, someone very close, a friend, a brother or sister, a peer in school or the workplace. And so you send a card, condolences, flowers, food or something else of meaning. You attend the funeral. You care and you care deeply and you hurt with those who are closest. It’s hard, but you know you need to be there. Yesterday, we returned from one of those events—the loss of a young man, who because of some chromosome issues at birth, finally lost his battle with life on this earth. Adam was Richard and Mary Ann’s 21-year-old son. I’m still struck by Richard’s comments as we prepared for the celebration of Adam’s life. Richard is a great farmer/seed grower back in Manitoba. This last year, as many of you know, was a disaster for farmers in that province. Too much rain in spring, so seeding was delayed beyond a reasonable date and then so dry when the little that did get seeded, that it wasn’t even worth harvesting. My question of Richard, “First you lost an entire crop, (a year’s finances) now you lose your son? What do you do with that?” “Oh Glenn, if we would have had our regular crop, we’d of been so busy harvesting this fall and then the winter would have revolved around cleaning seed, marketing and the like. But now, we’ve had all this time to be with Adam.” I recall during the “farming” part of my life, how the best crops always surfaced in the valleys, the lowest parts of the field. The best top soil had often eroded into the lower parts of the field and it was here that you would find

the most and the longest heads of wheat in the field. It was in the low spots, the valleys, where the combine began to growl as it was dealing with the heavy crops. It’s in the valleys, that we had our best harvests. As I listened to Richard and Mary Ann, I came face-to-face with a family who understood something incredible about life through the deep valleys they have travelled. Just a rather ordinary family, who had long ago learned something about the priorities of life, but who were now faced with the loss of a very precious son. I was listening to a man who was at peace in the midst of his pain. Richard related his discovery of this peace to the pressures he had so often felt in farming, which is such a weather-related industry. At one point, several years ago, standing out in a field, just wanting to give up, he finally declared his need of God’s help—“I can’t do this anymore.” That’s where it all began. That day Richard established some priorities. So often, the cynics refer to God as a crutch, but I can assure you, God had given him a genuine peace, not a crutch. So when Adam’s death was imminent, in Richard’s mind, God had provided them an even greater opportunity to share their love with their son during his final days. God and family are so clearly their first priority, a priority that is carrying them through this dreadful loss. And the other things of life, the things we so often find ourselves worrying about, have seemingly taken care of themselves, a beautiful confirmation of Matthew 6:30-33. The challenge for each of us is to ask, “does the way I live life, do the priorities I have established, inspire that kind of peace in my life?” ◗ Glenn Driedger is the lead pastor of Chilliwack Evangelical Missionary Church.Your comments are welcome at glenn.driedger@ telus.net.

Gold and Silver Coins Selling for Highest Prices in Over 30 Years Due to Weak Economy and It’s Happening Right Here in Chilliwack! By DAVID MORGAN STAFF WRITER

Also at this event anyone can sell their gold jewellery, dental gold or anything made of gold on the spot. Gold is currently trading at record high prices. Bring anything you think might be gold and the collectors will examine, test and price it for free. If you decide to sell, you will be paid on the spot – it has been an unknown fact that coin dealers have always paid more for jewellery and scrap gold than other jewelers and pawn brokers. So whether you have one coin you think might be valuable or a large collection you recently inherited, you can talk to these collectors for free. If your’re lucky you may have a rarity worth thousands. Either way there is nothing to lose and it sounds like fun!

ICC will be placing ads in newspapers, radio and running television spots this week asking people to bring in any old silver and gold coins made before 1968 and U.S. coins made before 1970. Those that bring in their coins will be able to speak with collectors one on one and have their coins looked at by a specialist. With the help of these ICC members, offers will be made to those that have coins made before 1968. Offers will be made based on silver or gold content and the rarity of the coins. All coins made before 1968 will be examined and purchased including gold coins, silver coins, silver dollars, all types of nickels and pennies. Those that decide to sell their coins will be paid on the spot. If you are like a lot of people you might have a few old coins or even a coffee can full lying around. If you have ever wondered what they are worth now might be your chance to find out and even sell them if you choose. They could be worth a lot according to the International Coin Collectors also known as ICC. Collectors will pay a fortune for some coins and currency for their collections. If it is rare enough, one coin could be worth over $100,000 according to Eric Helms, coin collector and ICC member. One ultra rare dime, an 1894S Barber, sold for a record $1.9 million to a collector in July of 2007. While that is an extreme example, many rare and valuable coins are stashed away in dresser drawers or lock boxes around the country. The ICC and its collector members have organized a traveling event in search of all types of coins and currency. Even common coins can be worth a significant amount due to the high price of silver and gold, says Helms. Washington quarters and Roosevelt dimes can be worth many times their face value. Recent silver markets have driven the price up on common coins made of silver. Helms explains that all U.S. half dollars, quarters and dimes made before 1970 contain 90% silver and are sought after any time silver prices rise. Right now it’s a sellers market he said. The rarest coins these collectors are looking for include $20, $10, $5 and $2 1/2 gold coins and any coin made before 1850. These coins always bring big premiums according to the ICC. Silver dollars are also very sought after nowadays. Other types of items the ICC will be purchasing during this event include U.S. currency, gold bullion, investment gold, silver bars, silver rounds, proof sets, etc. Even foreign coins are sought after and will be purchased.

Community

Starting your own book club Finding Members 1. Check for a list of potential members at public libraries, bookstores or community centres. 2. Post a notice to solicit members on a community bulletin board. 3. Ask (beg) to join an existing club. 4. Form your own club by inviting a few neighbours, friends or colleagues. 5. A club of eight to 12 members seems to be a good number. Adding new members to an already existing club should be done by consensus. Club Organization 1. A meeting location must be selected. A central location such as a library meeting room or restaurant works well as does rotating through members homes. 2. Decide on how much time will be allotted to socializing and how much time to discussion. This obviously should remain relatively flexible. 3. Will refreshments be served? Food can be a lovely addition to a club meeting. 4. Printing out a list of club members with respective addresses and contact info, as well as the book club schedule for several months in advance, is very useful.

on. More general discussion will follow—character development, themes and writing style, symbolism, imagery, etc. 4. Make an effort to observe book club etiquette: a. Each member should attempt to complete the book for the appointed date, regardless of the book’s appeal to that member personally; b. No one person should dominate the discussion for the duration of the meeting. Every member should have a voice; c. All opinions should be politely respected. Book clubs are invigorating because of healthy debate but debate should never regress into bickering.

friendly public librarian. 7. Be aware that reading group guides are available for many titles if this is important to your club discussions. Running a Meeting 1. Eat and socialize. These activities are an integral part of most reading clubs and help set the stage for a relaxing, productive discussion. 2. Many book clubs select a discussion leader for each meeting and rotate the responsibility on a monthly basis. This role might fall to the host or hostess. The leader’s responsibility will vary depending on the degree of structure chosen by club members but may include: a. providing background research on an author (biographical information, interviews, photos); b. keeping the discussion on track ; c. ensuring everyone has an equal opportunity to speak (or as one author on the topic so aptly put it: “Engaging the shy types and reining in the discussion hogs”); d. posing questions from a discussion guide if one is being used. 3. I would recommend beginning the discussion portion of each meeting with a brief one to two minute “round the table—first impression” sharing of ideas. This serves as a good icebreaker and allows the less chatty members of the group to make a contribution early

Tie-Ins – “Bringing the Book to Life” 1. Food – Refreshments may be planned around the cuisine of the book’s setting. 2. Music – Play background music appropriate to the book. 3. Author Interviews – There are a number of author interviews available on video, or even better, invite the real live author! 4. Field Trips – Theatre dramatizations, joint meetings with another book club and sleepovers can all add to the book club experience. 5. Movies – Movie tie-ins have always been a nice way to enhance a great book, but read the book first for goodness sake!

4-H allows you to dig in BY JESSICA MEIR Special to the Times

T

he 4-H program is largely thought of as a youth development program that is exclusively for those involved in agriculture. Recently, 4-H in B.C. expanded the offered projects so this is no longer the case. Rushing Rivers 4-H Club offers three different non-animal projects. Last year we introduced photography and crafts into the district for the first time, that I am aware of, and had interest in both projects. Now for the first time in years, or maybe altogether, in Chilliwack, the project gardening is being offered in the Rushing Rivers 4-H Community Club. Gardening members learn about seeds, fertilizing, sun and shade, chemicals and weeds; everything they need to know to successfully grow their own vegetables. Different units allow the members to have the option of exploring vegetable gardens, community

gardens, container gardening, worm composting, a flower garden for butterflies, and a larger garden. Members would come out only twice a month, once for a project night where they will be taught what they have to do that month and how to do it, and another time for a business meeting. Belonging to a 4-H club also gives members the opportunity to present a speech, do a demonstration, judge classes of animals, show at fairs, and win awards for your accomplishments. All these activities assist in developing youth into confident, contributing, and responsible members of society. So if you are interested in the 4-H program, but don’t have animals, there is always the option of a having fun growing your own garden, developing your photography skills, or being creative making crafts along with having the benefits of belonging to the 4-H program. ◗ If you would like more information on our club and it’s projects, you can visit our website at www.rushingrivers4hclub.weebly.com.

Selecting Books to Read 1. It’s a great idea to start with a book about “Book Clubs” such as The Reading Group Handbook by Rachael Jacobsohn or Build a Better Book Club by Harry Heft and Peter O’Brien. This activity is also recommended when interest in an existing club is languishing. 2. Book selections should reflect the scope of the club— fiction, non-fiction, poetry, biography, books by women authors, Canadiana, special themes or a mixture. From my experience, the greater the variation in titles and genres, the more intoxicating and inspirational the discussions. Allow all club members to have input at some point in the selection process. 3. Some reading groups suggest that the person recommending a title has already read it. This may help alleviate, though not prevent, nasty little literary surprises. 4. If possible, select titles at least four to six months in advance to ensure availability. 5. Avoid current titles not yet available in paperback, and out-of-print titles which are next to impossible to locate. 6. Make use of the myriad book reviews available through newspapers, literary magazines, TV and radio shows and the Internet to aid in selection. And remember, nothing beats a personal recommendation from your

Kevin Stone’s stainless steel dragon, unveiled here in 2009 in Chilliwack, is now on display at River Rock Casino Resort.

sculpture on his 30 acre blueberry farm, Stone relied on a silent partner—a farmer from Saskatchewan—to pay the bills and also come up with the $1 million needed to pay for the cost of supplies. Mirror stainless steel isn’t cheap, he added and it took a lot to create the dragon which measures 85-feet long from the head to the tail, is 14-feet wide and 12-feet tall. When the dragon sells they’ll split the profit. He’s hoping the dragon sculpture may find a permanent home at a Las Vegas resort or with a wealthy patron.

hilliwack artist Kevin Stone and his Saskatchewan investor are hoping The Year of the Dragon will bring them good fortune—specifically $5 million in riches, which is the price tag for a unique artwork Stone made out of mirrored stainless steel. Stone’s metal dragon, which is a traditional Chinese symbol for fortune, power and luck, was unveiled recently at the River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond just in time for the Chinese New Year, which is celebrating the Year of the Dragon. The resort has leased the 3,620-kilogram (8,000p o u n d ) a r t w o rk f o r s i x months with an option to keep it on show in its public outdoor courtyard for the full year. “The dragon speaks for itself. Anyone seeing it will see the level of detail and hard work that went into it,” said Stone, who took two years to complete the sculpture. Each piece was done by hand with Stone first cutting the steel to the desired shape “right out of his head” without the use of drawings so he could “let the art flow naturally out of me.” The

Obituaries

Helen Seemann (nee Fast) Feb. 4, 1924 – Dec. 20, 2011

May you find healing and comfort in the arms of God’s angels Knowing that she was loved and respected by her family and cherished by many dear friends, our Mom and Oma passed away in her home with family present and her beloved hymns playing softly by the bedside. Throughout her life she courageously dealt with the pain of many physical illnesses that challenged but neither defined nor defeated her. Even during the last few months of her life her amazing memory for details was still strong. She was predeceased by husband Walter and son-in-law Brian Leavitt. Broken hearted and still in disbelief that our “Miracle Mom” could really be gone are her children: Erika, Harry (wife Karen and children Kassidy and Logan), Rose McFarlane (husband Richard and children David, Jennifer and Kimberly), Hanna Leavitt and Monica Soth. Very special thank you to her long time friend Marguerite Arnold for her kindness and to Dr. I. Morrison of Abbotsford for his compassionate medical care. Mom showed us by example that if you can’t get something done one way you have to rethink the situation and attack it from another. Her small stature did not stop her from rotary tilling her large ‘rock’ garden into submission or from hoisting up a full size chain saw to make short work of a monstrous pine tree that fell in a windstorm over the driveway just missing the house. When the water pipes would freeze under the house, she would get the propane torch and warm the pipes until the water would run freely again. As effective as she was with handling outdoor challenges, her talents in the kitchen were the most appreciated! Her culinary delights included delicious soups, mouth watering baking, and the most amazing gravy and sauces. Preserving was a wonderful way to enjoy the bounty of her gardening efforts throughout the cooler months – she could preserve anything in a jar and did so in huge numbers! Many summer Sundays, Mom would be in the kitchen at sunrise roasting up a chicken, mixing potato salad, baking buns and cake to take to Entrance Bay for a relaxing family afternoon where she would crochet in the shade while we swam. We appreciate everything you did for us throughout the years. We love you, Mom and Oma, and will miss you today and forever. There will be no service by request. To honour her life, a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society or a charity of your choice would be appreciated. On February 4th, which will mark her 88th birthday, performing a random act of kindness would be a fitting tribute to a woman who, over the years, lent a hand to so many in her community.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Life’s good, friends are gathering, hopes are rising! You’re not quite as sure of yourself as you were a month ago, but that’s probably a good thing. Work lightens a little; what work there is tends to go in subtle circles now to April, so keep an eye on progress and helpers/ co-workers who wander off. Chase money Monday/Tuesday – there’s lots of it. Travel, details, errands, paperwork, calls and visits fill Wednesday to Friday – one of these, Wednesday, might bring a romantic meeting or notion, though it’s “off to the side,” not direct. Be home, contemplate career, Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Be ambitious for the next several weeks. Seek a relationship with higher-ups, VIPs, even parents. Now is the time to prove yourself. Rest and recuperate, plan and contemplate, Sunday. Your energy surges Monday/Tuesday – start important projects, see and be seen, approach powerful people, make your mark! You might have an exciting Tuesday night when an attraction occurs. Remember: it’s might not be a lasting thing, and it might interfere with (or change) your future. Chase money, buy/sell, during a lucky Wednesday to Friday. Your sensual side emerges. Travel – carefully – Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: A mellow, wise, compassionate mood has drifted over you. This isn’t your peak period for romance (that comes after May) but romance and love flow well now. You might gently love someone without demanding possession. Home and property matters, a bit tense or hectic lately, slow now to April, affording you a chance to catch your breath. But the same few months increase your indecision about a home-based project. DON’T begin major renovations before April 14. Retreat, rest and plan Monday/Tuesday. Your energy and charisma surge Wednesday to Friday – start something!

Cancer June 21-July 22: Focus on depths, changes, finances (investments/debt) power plays, mysteries, research, commitment, intimacy and sexual urges, now to late February. You’ll hear or suspect a secret, perhaps involving the government, a management situation, or about those who would bind you. Now to mid-April, guard against wild words, and be cautious in making promises, especially to bosses or other higher-ups. You might revisit a past haunt. Your mood remains mellow. Optimism, happiness arrive Monday/Tuesday. Rest, retreat, succeed Wednesday to Friday. You shine Saturday: patience needed! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: You’ll face some opposition and some opportunity, some love and some enmity. Overall, this is a good week, in which diplomacy and eagerness will net you solid gains. Don’t take the sober assessment of Sunday as your guideline. Instead, be hopeful, happy. Be ambitious Monday/Tuesday – higher-ups are willing to bend things your way. You’re seen as a valuable asset. (Take advantage, now to June.) Optimism, popularity, wish fulfillment come Wednesday to Friday – enjoy prospects, flirtations. Retreat, rest Saturday. Be careful with money, spending to April. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your sexual magnetism remains intense all winter/spring, but now to mid-April it doesn’t really help you to make a new relationship. (Indecision or an “intimate impediment” slows you down.) You might, however, “re-circle” to pursue someone you met before – this could succeed. You can substitute “invest” for “relationship” or “intimacy,” for this trend affects your finances as well. The few weeks ahead focus on work, duties, machinery and health. Wisdom, education, ideas and gentle love visit Monday/Tuesday. Be ambitious Wednesday to Friday: success slated! Saturday’s happy.

Jan. 29 - Feb. 4, 2011

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: You might be tempted to invest Monday/Tuesday. Go ahead, even be a little speculative. A sexual temptation might arise these two days: this, too, seems beneficial, not harmful. (If someone’s married, though, consider the karma.) A sweet, mellow, understanding mood flows over you Wednesday to Friday – a mood that fits perfectly with the romantic, creative spell you’re under this week and the next two. If a love affair exists, it grows. However, in the bigger picture, now to June is not a good time to wed, nor to seek a permanent mate. So just have fun. Home caution, Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The accent lies on home, domestic concerns, security, retirement, property, garden, stomach and soul. Tackle chores Sunday, but be willing to knock off early. Relationships confront you Monday/Tuesday, and mostly for good. A romantic undercurrent runs through the first half of this week. Wednesday through Friday bring secrets, sexual urges, investment and financial opportunities (even the opportunity to reduce debt) – and the possible need for a health diagnosis. You can make very beneficial changes and commitments these three days, especially Wednesday (before 2 p.m. PST). Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Travel, run errands, return messages, call, chat, read the media, handle paperwork – life’s busy but easy. Romance or creative or pleasure urges beckon Sunday, but don’t expect major stuff. Tackle chores or health concerns Monday/Tuesday – all’s well. Relationships confront you Wednesday to Friday. Be diplomatic yet eager to join – you could make a new friend.Flexibility opens the door to opportunity; fighting closes doors. (Best day: Thursday.) Saturday’s filled with secrets, but not good ones: be cautious with finances, intimacy. Until April, career projects eddy: rest up.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: A legal, educational, publishing, cultural or far travel project might eddy in circles until mid-April, so relax and let it ebb. There is a romantic undercurrent to this week, but the main emphasis is on earnings, buying/selling, sensual episodes and memory. Seek new clients, or angle for a more important (or, mainly, lucrative) job role, especially Wednesday to Friday. Earlier, Monday/Tuesday are romantic, creative, pleasurable – and reward risk. Both Sunday and Saturday (29th and 4th) need caution, as subtle tug-o-wars occur between you and others. An easy, rewarding week. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Your energy, magnetism, effectiveness and sense of timing are tops! Get out, make contacts, start important projects, call in favours – though you might not want to bother much Sunday, when everyone’s a bit reluctant.Your major luck,now to June,is in real estate,family and security zones – these are favoured Monday/Tuesday, so charge ahead. A romantic, creative, pleasure-oriented, speculative or risk-taking urge fills you Wednesday to Friday – charge ahead here, too, but remember that real romantic motives/goals seem a bit hidden, subconscious. Lust succeeds, though! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Rest, lie low, contemplate and plan. Despite your lowered energy, people still treat you affectionately. Hook up with a charity, or give in other ways – help someone. This puts pennies in the karmic account. Your lover or spouse might descend into indecisive circles now to mid-April. That’s OK; be patient. A big thing happens Friday: you enter 15 years of increased intuition, smoothness, personality strength and magnetism. (Love won’t be far behind – probably 2013/14.) Talk, travel, message Monday/Tuesday. Then to Friday, relax, sink into home, peace. Beauty, love, Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca
