onvicted American pedophile Steven Dyer never lived in Chilliwack despite his purchase of a Garrison Crossing townhouse in 2008 using a false identity But he did design and sell equipment for playgrounds at a number of local elementary schools. Dyer, 44, was living in B.C. under the name Brian Woolworth after having fled to Canada from Arizona, where he was convicted in absentia in 2002 of 13 counts of sexually assaulting two boys in Scottsdale, Ariz., over a two-year period.

Preparing for teachers’ strike BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

C

hilliwack school district officials are ready for a full-scale teacher strike that could happen as early as Monday. “We have a plan in place, but we won’t announce what it is until we know what’s going to happen,” said superintendent Michael Audet, “but we are preparing our school staff, our principals and vice-principals for a possible job action.” The teacher strike, which started in September, could boil over into a fullblown walkout by early next week, but parents would get at least two days notice if that happens, said Audet.

Plan is in place but school district won’t announce what it is until teachers union makes its decision “As soon as we know, we’ll put the message out and advise parents as soon as possible,” he said. The Labour Relations Board ruled earlier in the week that B.C. teachers could legally walk off the job for three consecutive days in the first week and one day a week thereafter as long as the union gives two days’ notice. Teachers around the province voted Tuesday and Wednesday on whether to escalate the strike, but the result wasn’t available by press

time. Even if teachers approved a fullscale walkout, however, legislation introduced Tuesday could prevent such a move. Once passed, Education Minister George Abbott’s Bill 22 will impose a cooling off period until September that would make a strike illegal and impose heavy fines for illegal strike action. If the bill is held up in the legislature, however, teachers may still have time to walk off the job.

Audet said parents in Chilliwack should check the school district website for information. In the event some parents drop their kids off at schools during a walkout, he said school administrators will be on hand. “We will have principals and viceprincipals at every school,” he said, “and we will likely have the ability to receive those students as they arrive, but we will not be providing an educational program for those students without the teachers.”

Nostalgia won’t likely save theatre BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he official period for ideas to renovate the dilapidated Paramount Theatre is months past, but grassroots interest in the historic Chilliwack landmark continues to swell. But while Mayor Sharon Gaetz is sympathetic to the nostalgic impulses behind interest in the Paramount, she wants to give people a dose of reality. “I don’t have a vision for the Paramount, I have a vision for the downtown,” she told theTimesWednesday.“And we can be nostalgic, but I think we need to remember, it closed down for a reason.” A number of unconnected campaigns have been started to save the historic

building. There is a Facebook group called “Save the Paramount.” Three Grade 5 students, Bailey-Jayne Chapman, Mathew Zandberg and Takara Charlton, created an online petition to save the Paramount. The petition had 147 signatures as of Wednesday at noon. And Chilliwack resident Laura Reid is trying to save the building using some form of heritage status. She has nominated the building for Heritage Canada’s Top 10 Endangered Places List. Reid said saving the building was realistic and that heritage in general needs to be considered in Chilliwack. “Realistically, a possibility does exist, but more importantly is for this to become a catalyst to start the conversation about heritage in Chilliwack,” she said.

Reid was in touch with a New Brunswick film company currently making a film about saving old theatres, asking them to come to Chilliwack. Former Chilliwack resident and current professor of film at the University of Amsterdam, Joyce Groggin, wrote a letter in which she outlined her love of the Paramount and why the city should save it (see page 9). But Gaetz reiterated that the building needs upwards of $300,000 in remedial work. “The building is so limited in scope,” she said. “There is not a gap for the Paramount to fill, unfortunately. Everything is looked after in the city; we have live theatre, live music, art displays, all of that is being done in a $22 million building that needs no repairs.”

olice are asking for the public’s help after an elderly Chilliwack woman returned home last Thursday to find two men ransacking her house. The 82-year-old woman came back to her home, in the 9000 block of Annis Road, just after 11 a.m. to find two men inside. As she entered, the men pushed past her and out her door. The senior was uninjured but the thieves didn’t leave empty-handed. Several items are missing, including a pair of earrings that originally belonged to the 82-year-old woman’s mother. “A crime like this goes so far beyond the monetary value of belongings,” said RCMP spokesperson Const. Tracy Wolbeck. “This is an 82-year-old woman who has never experienced anything like this before.” Wolbeck, though, credited the woman for providing a description of the vehicle and a partial licence plate number. “Most people in that situation would not be that alert,” she said. The vehicle is described as an older dark-green Jimmy or Blazer with rust on the passenger-side rocker panels. It is a “very distinct looking vehicle,” according to police. Both men were white. One was in his late 30s, of slim build and short in stature, with short hair. The other was over six feet tall and of large build.

Keeping cat numbers down

Vets volunteer their time for free spay and neutering BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he Chilliwack SPCA is teaming up with three local vets this month to stem the annual spring surge of unwanted cat births. Local veterinarians Kulvinder Grewal and Rajinder Singh of Family Pet Hospital and Kuldeep Chahal of Cheamview Veterinary Clinic have volunteered to spay and neuter 60 cats free of charge for farmers, First Nations communities and low-income pet owners. “Each spring we are inundated with abandoned and unwanted kittens, and sadly there are simply not enough homes for all of them,” says Chilliwack SPCA manager

Ivanna Ferris. “By spaying and neutering as many as we can in the spring, we can hopefully have a major impact this year so that there won’t be so many young cats on our streets, fighting for survival.” This is the first time the SPCA has offered the program, which targets areas with high numbers of free-roaming, breeding cats, and Ferris said the SPCA is pleased three local vets have stepped up to volunteer. “It’s a big undertaking for the vets to give their time and the cost for this initiative,” she said. “Pet overpopulation is a community issue and these three veterinarians are showing great community leadership by offering their services to help pet guardians address the problem.” All appointments for this year have already been booked on a first-come, first-served basis, but Ferris hopes the SPCA will be able to expand the program next year. “If we have more vets involved, the hope is we’ll be able to offer this to more people next year,” she said, adding that donations to support the program are also welcome.

Sad ending to missing man T

he body of a missing Chilliwack man has been found. Douglas Sawatzky’s body was found several feet down an embankment near the Liumchen Creek Forest Service Road in the Chilliwack River Valley area.

Foul play is not suspected, according to Chilliwack RCMP. Sawatzky had been missing since Feb. 5, when he left home in his Jeep Cherokee to go camping, something that was not unusual for him. “It appears that Doug was prepared to spend some time in the woods with the gear and equipment that was found with him,” said RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck. “Our thoughts are with Doug’s family at this difficult time.”

Byelection for Harrison

BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

A

municipal byelection will have to be called in the Village Harrison Hot Springs as the BC Supreme Court has ruled Coun. Richard Shelley is not qualified to hold office. Shelley finished fourth to win the final seat in the Nov. 19 vote, but his win was contested by the fifth-place candidate, Andrew Baziuk, who argued that because Shelley was a paid on-call firefighter, he was a municipal employee. The petition was filed against Shelley, who made two arguments in defence: that the fire department is not part of the municipal government, and that because he asked the fire chief to have his salary donated to charity, he received no remuneration. Justice David Masuhara rejected both arguments. “In terms of the members of the fire department, they are under the ultimate control of the municipality,” Masuhara wrote in his decision. Shelley’s request to defer his salary was also made after the election, on Dec. 4, 2011.

What is Belly Fat?

“Mr. Shelley’s request to . . . have his remuneration donated to a charity, while laudable, does not place him within the exception as set out in the Regulation because at the relevant time, which is at the time he was elected, Mr. Shelley had received and was entitled to monetary compensation,” Masuhara found. But despite what Baziuk concedes is a moral victory, he didn’t get what he wanted. Because he finished in fifth he asked the court to declare him the winner of the fourth seat if Shelley was removed. Shelley and the village argued if he was to be removed, there should be a byelection. The judge agreed. “I did the job for the province and I have to now fight another [election],” Baziuk said. “The public could be upset at me for spending, probably $20,000 to $30,000 of legal fees to fight me. They might have a very negative opinion of me.” However, he said he will run in the byelection and he thinks his court victory proves his willingness to fight for what is right. Shelley received 284 votes to Baziuk’s 269 in the 2011 election. A date for the byelection has not been set.

Belly fat is comprised of mainly visceral or omentum fat. This fat is different than subcutaneous fat (the fat you can pinch). Omentum fat is the least desirable fat on the body because of the way it packs itself around vital organs. The loss of belly fat, will promote much better health. How much Belly Fat is too much? Measure your waist across your belly button. The general rule is... the total inches around your belly should be half or less than your height. If you are 5’6” or 66 inches, your waist should be 33 inches or less.

Cooper is white, six-foot-one and 190 pounds, with long grey hair normally worn in a ponytail. He was wearing blue jeans, a burgundy sweater and black New Balance shoes. He also has several tattoos including: a dagger on his left arm; a Celtic heart on his left wrist with the initial JM; and a Yin and Yang symbol on his left pelvic region. Call RCMP at 604-792-4611.

The Science Behind Safflower Oil In a controlled study, researchers examined the health effects of safflower oil on overweight, diabetic and postmenopausal women... • Safflower Oil was found to be superior in belly fat loss, fasting glucose, insulin and increasing adiponectin levels. • The study group lost up to 9.4% belly fat. • Levels of the important belly fat hormone, Adiponectin, increased an average of 20.3%. Ideal for both men and women, SafSlim is the first-ever high linoleic Safflower Oil supplement that specifically targets the unhealthy fat that accumulates around the belly. In a major study SafSlim, significantly reduced belly fat an average of 6.3%. If you are concerned about your waistline bulge, you should try SafSlim. 450 mL

Budget meetings behind closed doors School board says media not invited

BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

A

fter five years of hosting a series of annual budget meetings open to the general public and press, the Chilliwack school board has decided to hold its budget consultations behind closed doors this year. Since 2007, school officials have invited the general public to three or four meetings every spring to get input about how the district should spend its money the following year. On Tuesday, trustees approved a plan to replace those meetings with a single budget consultation that will only hear input from representatives of the district’s official partner groups, like the Chilliwack Teachers’ Union, CUPE and the District Parent Advisory Council. “Can anyone from the public come? No,” said superintendent Michael Audet when asked about the meeting in a ROOTS, from page 1 The concept of school gardens first emerged in 1904, when the Chilliwack Agricultural Society sponsored a school competition for the annual Chilliwack Fair. Ten local schools competed that year, and Cheam school took home top honours. Horticultural powerhouse Chilliwack Central unseated them the following year. The student gardens were grown on school grounds until 1925, when officials put in place the current practice of having kids grow their gardens at home. More recently, organizers introduced container gardening to accommodate city kids who might only have balconies and patios to grow on. “We’re really trying to encourage children with an urban background, who really have no exposure to farming, to take on some horticultural activities,” said Marien. The purpose of getting kids to grow vegetables (and, more recently, flowers) has shifted over the years. Originally, the goals were loftier than merely teaching students how to hoe, dig or pull weeds. The program was to “pro-

Times interview Wednesday. Secretary treasurer Maureen Carradice told trustees Tuesday the reason for the change was that public budget forums haven’t been well attended in the past. “I don’t think we had more than a dozen people at any of our budget forums last year,” she said,“so myself, working with the trustees on the finance committee and the finance department, we’ve been exploring options for how we might get more input to the budget preparation process.” Instead of the forums, the district has decided to get input from the general public electronically via the school district website, and to use its one budget consultation meeting (scheduled for March 6) to get input from two or three representatives from each of its partner groups. These same partner groups meet with district executives four or five times a

year already on the superintendent’s council, but Audet said the budget consultation would centre on fiscal matters. “This gives focus to our partner groups to tell us in a focused way about the budget,” he said. Finance committee chair Trustee Doug McKay said the move toward a single, invitation-only budget consultation wouldn’t exclude input from the general public since people can give input online and because the outcomes of the partner-group budget consultation will be reported at a public board meeting. “We are going to share what happens at those meetings in a public board meeting,” he said. “That is the way for the media to become aware of what happened at those meetings. That’s the way for the public to become aware of what happened at those meetings.”

Increasing awareness for students vide the basis for problems in arithmetic, objects for drawing, subjects for composition and illustrations for history and geography,” according to a 1915 news article. “It provide[d] an opportunity for the development of the faculty of observation, the power to see things definitely, to reach right conclusions with reference to the observations, and to make correct mental notes . . . to state the right colour, the exact length, the exact shape and position . . . the spirit of enquiry is encouraged and the drudgery of practical agriculture [was] at least partially displaced by a new and intelligent interest in the principles which underline it.” Today, with a growing push toward eating more locally grown food and living more sustainably, the aims of the program have changed. “The whole goal of this is to increase awareness of food production,” said Marien, who said few people, let alone kids, in the Fraser Valley realize only a small fraction of the food grown on our fertile farmland is eaten locally. A retired medical researcher, Marien said growing vege-

tables gives kids who are used to highly processed foods and grocery-store produce a chance to see want “real,” fresh food looks like. Strathcona vice-principal Iain Gardner, the program’s public schools liaison, agrees. “When you’re in an urban setting it’s just that much harder to get back to nature. This provides an opportunity,” he said. Gardner’s favourite part of the program is when his own kids bring home their seed packets in April. “They get me mucking around in the backyard,” he said. Last year, 172 public, private and home-school kids from kindergarten to Grade 12 grew gardens for the program. Pa r t i c i p a n t s a re s u p plied with seeds in April and encouraged to follow the advice of horticultural experts on the program’s website for planting and tending their crop. The gardens, which come in a number of categories, are inspected up to three times during the growing season, and the best produce in each

category and age group is selected to compete in the Chilliwack Fair in August. ◗ For more information about theChilliwackSchoolsGarden Program, including registration forms, visit http://garden.sd33.bc.ca/Home.html.

T

he Chilliwack school board is once again looking to tinker with spring break. Trustees passed a motion Tuesday, directing staff to review the possibility of returning to a two-week vacation for 2012-13. The district extended last year’s break as a cost-saving measure but returned to a oneweek break this year after the extra week raised the ire of working parents left scrambling to arrange day care and angering CUPE employees who lost work days. Tuesday’s motion, introduced by trustee Walt Krahn, however, wasn’t aimed at saving money but addressing a quirk in next year’s provincial school calendar The end of spring break on that calendar is only four days from the beginning of Easter break. “If we don’t fly in this direction there will PEDOPHILE, from page 1 he was great to deal with,” Edmondson said. “I’ve met him and shook his hand and I even tried to recommend him to a friend who was in charge of building a playground in Promontory.” Edmondson said Dyer was on school property taking measurements during school hours, but added that he did not have contact with any students. The principal of Vedder elementary did not return a call from the Times before going to press. The Cowichan Street townhouse Dyer purchased in 2008 is still listed as being owned by Woolworth. The unit has been rented since December

be many students that will be absent,” said Krahn. “Schools then do not have the opportunity to move forward.” Krahn’s motion also directed staff to take into consideration CUPE employees, teachers on call and working parents who need day care when school is closed. Trustee Silvia Dyck supported the motion, suggesting the four days could be taken from the summer break. “It takes nothing from anyone,” she said. “It simply shortens the summer break, which is already almost two months.” Chair Louise Piper, however, was cautious in her support. “We’ve been down this road a couple of times,” she said, and I’m very cognizant of the concerns of the groups that were mentioned in the motion. It’s still a concern for me, but I will support staff looking into it.” Staff will report back to the board no later than April 24.

Ideal landlord 2010. When the current tenant of Dyer’s townhouse moved in, the unit had sat vacant for a year and had never been lived in. “All the appliances still had the tape on them,” the tenant, who asked not to be named, told the Times. “He came across as an educated, well-spoken, thoughtful person. He appreciated that I was a good tenant.” The tenant only found out who her landlord really was a week ago when she was visited by CBSA and the RCMP before Dyer was arrested in Montreal. “He seemed like an ideal landlord,” she said. “Boy am I a bad judge of character.”

◗ Opinion

Need to hear your story W hen you’re a reporter, a family member’s death is a strange thing. Reporters equate big events with stories. But while the death of a close family member is one of the most monumental event in a person’s life, absent a few crucial elements, death—even the premature death of a parent or child—is not inherently a newspaper story. So when my aunt—who might as well have been a third parent to me—died of cancer last month, my instant reaction was to think of it as the biggest story I had ever been involved in. But it wasn’t. The thing is, people die all the time. (A brief rant: let’s end the use of euphemisms when we talk of death. Saying someone “passed away” doesn’t make the end any less final. And for kids, it can be downright confusing; I remember hearing adults talking about someone who “passed” and trying to remember if that meant the person had died or simply left town.) Who dies, how they do so, and where and why it takes place are all key factors in deciding whether it is a news story. That, in part, is why a newcomer to Earth would be forgiven, after opening a newspaper, he or she thought most people perish in car crashes, gang wars or hospital foul-ups. That’s not true, of course. Most people die unspectacularly when

TYLER OLSEN

Win,Lose orTy their bodies fail them. The bodies of some, like my aunt, fail far too soon. Others live full and complete lives before leaving us. Whatever the case, and despite the momentous impact their passing leaves on families and friends, their deaths are rarely marked in our media. This is by necessity. Six hundred seventy eight people died in Chilliwack in 2010. Whatever you call it, though, it’s impossible to write a news story about every person who dies (that’s what obituaries are for). Individually, their deaths— including that of my aunt—do not meet the strict definition of “news,” as a group. But that doesn’t mean their stories cannot find a place in a newspaper. As a group and as individuals, those 678 people who died in 2010 can help show us both how we, as residents of Chilliwack, die and how we live. The numbers show alcohol to be a major drain on life in Chilliwack; that suicide vastly outstrips homicide as a cause of death; and that lung cancer remains a major killer.

We also know a little about what happens after deaths: for example, did you know that for every person buried in Chilliwack, three are cremated? But the figures are just part of it. The individual stories— remarkable to families and loved ones but all too common to normally prompt a news item—are even more important. That’s where you, the readers, come in. If a loved one of yours died in Chilliwack in 2010, I would like to hear your story. I want to know about the lives that those 678 people lived. I want to hear from mothers, daughters, sons and husbands about the impact their beloved family members had on Chilliwack. And I want to learn how hundreds of families cope with the inevitable each year in Chilliwack. Death is not an easy subject, of course. I know. But it’s an issue nobody can avoid. Sooner or later, it’s going to happen. I know that many people have a deep and abiding urge to tell the world about men and woman who, while gone, continue to reside in memories. And I want to hear and share those memories and find out what they say about Chilliwack. If you can contribute, please email me at tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com Thank you.

hilliwack school trustees didn’t miss a beat this Tuesday when they approved a finance committee report doing away with public budget forums this year. After years of inviting the general public to three or four open meetings every spring to find out how people think the school district should spend their tax dollars, trustees approved a plan to shut it down with barely a blink. Without a peep of debate, the district’s budget consultation process is now a single-meeting, invitation-only affair. And any input people want to have into the process now will either have to be squeezed through a handful of representatives from the district’s partner groups (the Chilliwack Teachers’ Association, CUPE, the District Parent Advisory Committee, etc.) or be submitted online at the district’s website, from whence it may make its way in some diluted form into a report or disappear into the ether altogether. There’s no way of knowing because nary a trustee at Tuesday’s meeting asked how online input would be reported or used before deciding it was an OK substitute for four open public meetings. Nor did trustees question the logic of district staff who told them this new single, invitation-only meeting would somehow facilitate more public input than four open forums. While public forums weren’t well attended in the past (staff’s argument for doing away with them), the decision to move from four poorly-attended public meetings to a single consultation from which the general public has been excluded seems drastic and ill-conceived. Either the Chilliwack school board has deliberately set out to limit public input during its budgeting process this year, or trustees were asleep at the wheel Tuesday when they approved the change to the process—neither option is acceptable for people elected to represent the public’s interest in the public school system. - Cornelia Naylor

oligopoly that made it possible for studios to own theatre chains that showed only their films. That system was doubtless a brutal one and, over the long run, it was also an unsound economic arrangement that stifled rather than nurtured creativity. And while I am not entirely opposed to the kind of economic decentralization and diversification that gave us the Cineplex of the somewhat smaller big screen, the old Paramount Theatre and the sign that graces its otherwise unglamorous facade embody both an economic order as well as a way of life that is long gone, namely the great age of Hollywood Classical Cinema that so dramatically marked the first half of the 20th century. Last year, Elizabeth Taylor, who made frequent appearances on the silver screen at the old Paramount, passed out of our lives for good and with her, the very last living embodiment of the classical Hollywood era. What Chilliwack now possesses is one of the world’s few remaining architectural monuments to this important historic moment of the past century, and the city owes it to future generations, not to mention film buffs, historians of cinema and just about everyone else, to preserve this important building. It is my sincere hope that the city can rally the necessary finances to save what could once again become a dynamic venue for the seventh lively art. As a venue that could serve both the purposes of entertainment and film studies, the Paramount Theatre is not just some old building or an eyesore that should happily succumb to the wrecking ball—it is an important signifier of our shared heritage and must be preserved. In closing, although I live an ocean away, this issue is so important to me that I will happily do whatever I can to help save the old Paramount Theatre . . . which is really everyone’s old Paramount Theatre! Dr. Joyce Goggin, associate professor Film, Literature and New Media University of Amsterdam

Hard to watch, but easy to support Editor: [Last summer Tyler Olsen spoke to Kelly Gregoire about the upcoming MMA fight of her son, Jamie Siraj. At that time, Kelly said she couldn’t watch her son’s fights, although she said the sport had a good impact on his life.] I just wanted to give you an update: on Feb. 17 I attended Jamie’s fight at the Tzeachten Community Centre. I picked a good fight to attend, Jamie went three rounds with a young man nearly a foot taller and much older. I did watch. I’ll admit I held my breath quite often but I did find myself getting into the action just as if I was on the sidelines of a soccer game. At one point Jamie was on his knees under the other fighter and he pushed himself to stand up with this young man’s entire weight and force on his back. I felt a overwhelming sense of pride. Jamie looked skilled, strong and determined. He went three rounds, longer than any of the other fights I had watched. When they announced Jamie as the winner he fell to his knees in the middle of the ring. All of his training and commitment paid off and he was overwhelmed with pride. I believe I now have a better understanding of his career choice. It wasn’t about us, his coaches or even the other fighter in the ring. When came out of the ring and had finished receiving all his pats on the back (that he clearly enjoyed) he walked straight towards me, rested his arms on my shoulders and looked me straight in the eyes and just smiled. Jamie lead me back into the room where the fighters prepared for their fights, one of his team coaches cut off his hand wraps and handed them to me. I decided to leave him in his glory and went to my truck to call his dad. I won’t lie when I hung up the phone after giving his dad the good news I was finally able to breathe.

So I will wrap this up by saying MMA is definitely a sport not for the faint of heart but for a strong willed, skilled, dedicated and determined mixed martial artist! Kelly Gregoire Chilliwack

Canada Post goes above and beyond Editor: Recently on a weekend, I inadvertently, foolishly included a $1,200 bank deposit envelop with a Canada Post mailing. Immediately upon the drop I realized my blunder. On Monday morning next, I sped to the 46229 Yale Rd. Canada Post office to inform the manager of my error who in turn immediately informed Kim our Roy Avenue carrier. Would you believe it, that same delivery day she sorted through her outgoing mailings and much beyond the call of duty delivered the bank deposit to our door. We were astounded. Kim had pushed the envelop under our front door. Of course we thanked her and her generous response was, “I like to treat all my clients that way.” I am writing this thank you note to the readers of the ChilliwackTimes to let them know of the excellent and trusted service from Canada Post. Indeed five-star service—or more. George H. Epp Chilliwack

Vote like your life depended on it Editor: Health Canada reports that B.C. has the highest percentage of seniors who cannot afford their medication. Bob Rae, in an interview with the CBC, mentioned that seniors in Ontario who qualify for the Guaranteed Income Supplement because they are living below the poverty line, automatically receive a drug card from that provincial government. Here in B.C., seniors living below the poverty line have received Fair Pharmacare Benefits instead—that is up until last year. In 2008 and 2009, the Liberal government was illegally taxing the GIS. When this was brought to the attention of the federal finance minister, he ordered the B.C. government to cease and desist. The 2010 taxation forms were changed to exclude the GIS from taxation. Premier Christy Clark made up for this by cancelling the Fair

Pharmacare program for seniors collecting the supplement. How many low income seniors died in 2011 because they could not afford their medications? It was probably not her intent to euthanize these seniors but her inflated ego got in the way of common sense. After all, a dead lowincome senior certainly helps her healthcare budget. With a byelection approaching, I would encourage the electorate, and especially seniors, to carefully weigh their decisions before casting their ballots. Please get out to vote in this important byelection. Your life depends on it. Leonard Hollands Rosedale

Chiefs prove they have character Editor: As coaches of the Chilliwack Special Olympic floor hockey team, we would like to send a big thank you out to the Chilliwack Chiefs organization. Recently a group of their players came out and played a friendly match against our athletes. I have to say they are an awesome group of young men. They were kind and so genuine with their desire for all to have fun. Everyone had a blast and I have such respect for all the guys and the Chiefs as a team. Chilliwack is lucky to have young men like that come into our city. Thank you Barry, thank you Harvey, you are winners in our eyes. I hope that character I saw in our game brings you far in your games and in life. Justin Burnette, Neil Stad and all the Chilliwack Special O’ hockey players

Mayor and council could pony up Editor: I would like to see at least one thing happen locally in regards to the teacher/government stalemate: That the mayor and council would come out and support the teachers and their plight to receive a cost-of-living increase, as Gaetz and council awarded themselves last year, an increase of 11 per cent and 16 per cent respectively. This increase will be automatic, (no in camera/public recorded vote needed) in two years time. This might help dispell the “truth” that we are living in times of austere budgets of 0-0-0 per cent wage increases. Ed MacDonald Fairfield Island

Editor: As a child who found herself uprooted from her home in Winnipeg, Man., and living in a dreary basement suite on Princess Avenue East with a single mother who struggled hard to make ends meet, every Saturday was special to me. This is because Saturday afternoons were spent in the Paramount Theatre, where I would to nestle into the inky darkness and be carried away through the magic of cinema to a place where the pain of my parents’ recent divorce was left far behind. Saturday meant savouring Macintosh toffee, red twisty liquorice and those big, soft pink and white peppermints while I waited for the red velvet curtains to part and a world beyond to unfold. Every Saturday I would watch Elvis Presley cavorting in Hawaiian shirts and crooning to some glamorous female on the beach, or watch as Jane Fonda cantered off into the distance as Cat Ballou. I also remember becoming political to The Little Big Man, and somewhat less political as I smooched in the sheltering darkness to Grizzly. All of these coming of age moments were spent in the Paramount Theatre; and these are rites of passage that I no doubt share with hundreds if not thousands of other residents of Chilliwack who are incensed at the thought of losing such an important and emotionally invested landmark. I left Chilliwack at age 17 to pursue a university career and I guess the old Paramount was to leave an indelible mark on my future: I am now a senior lecturer in film, literature and new media at the University of Amsterdam and continue to write passionately about film today . . . including many of the films I saw first at the Paramount like The Poseidon Adventure. But my personal involvement aside, there is a deeper, more important reason for preserving this heritage site which, when gone, will be gone irrevocably. In 1948 the U.S. government passed what is known as the Paramount Decision which banned studios like Paramount, Columbia, RKO and so on from maintaining a stranglehold on the stars who worked for them, as well as the cinemas that screened their films (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ United_States_v._Paramount_Pictures,_Inc.). This landmark antitrust case was a pivotal moment in the history of cinema as well as in the economics of vertical integration. The Paramount ruling marked the end of the old Hollywood system as well as the end of an

Chilliwack Chiefs forward Jeremy Gossard loses his lid after taking a clean hit from Salmon Arm Silverbacks defenceman Brendan Kennedy during Tuesday’s BCHL tilt between the two squads.

OT victory for Chiefs

he Chilliwack Chiefs can start looking forward, rather than behind them, after knocking off the Salmon Arm Silverbacks 4-3 in overtime Tuesday night. The Chiefs watched a 3-0 lead evaporate in the third period but thanks to Derek Huisman managed to claim victory in extra time. The win gives the Chiefs a five-point lead

over the Vernon Vipers as both teams battle for the fourth and final playoff spot in the Interior Conference. Chilliwack also has one game in hand, although they also have to face the Penticton Vees, who haven’t lost since Nov. 5. The Chiefs are now within reach of the third-place Prince George Spruce Kings, who sit four points ahead of the Chiefs but have See CHIEFS, Page 12

Chiefs forward Jaret Babych pulls away from Salmon Arm Silverbacks opponent Travis Stephens during BCHL action Tuesday.

Devin Muller beat Gillam with 19 seconds left to send the game to overtime. Chilliwack’s first line, however, were too much for the suffering Silverbacks and four minutes into overtime, Derek Huisman beat Williams to send Chiefs fans home happy. Injuries affecting D-line With Tyler Miller and Shay Laurent sidelined with injuries, Chiefs head coach Harvey Smyl was again forced to ice just five defencemen, including Kody Dhaliwal, who normally plays forward. Dhaliwal had another solid game. While he doesn’t provide the physical presence of a Miller or Laurent, Dhaliwal can still get under opposing skins, as evident in the first period when Salmon Arm coach Colin O’Hara was heard loudly imploring “Hit that [expletive]” after Dhaliwal had twice spun away from checks and moved the puck swiftly up the ice.

played an extra game. Finishing third would allow the Chiefs to avoid the aforementioned Vees in the first round of the playoffs. On Tuesday, the focus was on the struggling Silverbacks, who sat in sixth place in the conference having won just one of their previous nine games. Salmon Arm was handed a chance to open the scoring seven minutes into the first period when Chief Kit Sitterley was given a double-minor for high sticking. But instead, Chilliwack turned the tables thanks to a great shift by Malcolm Gould. Halfway through Sitterley’s banishment, Gould swiped the puck away from a Silverbacks defender and raced in on Salmon Arm’s goalie on a partial breakaway. He was turned away and bolted back to his own end to continue defending. Legs tired after a busy shift, Gould picked off a too-casual Salmon Arm pass at the Chiefs blue line and earned himself a second breakaway. This time he had more time and slipped the puck past Silverbacks netminder Kurt Williams on a forehand deke to open the scoring. Chiefs goaltender Mitch Gillam held the fort in the second until Gould added to his goal total by tapping in a David Bondra cross-crease setup to put Chilliwack up by two. Sitterley added his 12th goal of the year 56 seconds into the third period and Chilliwack looked like they would cruise to an easy two points. But midway through the third, Salmon Arm rallied. A powerplay goal with just under nine minutes left was followed four minutes later by a controversial marker by Travis Stephens from a goalmouth scramble. And with Salmon Arm’s goalie pulled,

hilliwack FC will have several soccer teams vying for places in cup finals and semifinal games this weekend. Langley will be the site of many of the district final games, with U-12, U13, U-14 and U-15 Striker teams from Chilliwack all in the running. Chilliwack’s U-18 Galaxy are also playing in a district final. The Chilliwack Strikers U-13 Silver Select girls squad booked their ticket to the semifinals by defeating Semiahmoo by a score of 2-0 last weekend to move into the semifinals of the District Cup. Goals came from Sierra Brown in the first half and Carley Murray in the sec-

ond half as the Strikers put together an excellent team effort in very windy and cold conditions. The Strikers play Maple Ridge on March 4 in the semifinal in Chilliwack. The U-15 Storm girls side, meanwhile, will also play in the semifinal of the Coastal Classic Cup Saturday at noon at Townsend Park after finishing first in league play. And the U-16 Strikers are also playing in a cup semifinal game. In Coastal Cup play, the U-17 Crush downed Langley 6-1 to book a trip to the next stage of that cup. The U-18 Galaxy are also moving ahead in the Coastal Cup after a 4-1 victory over Langley Sunday. - Staff

On deck Chiefs travelling The Chilliwack Chiefs head to the Okanagan this weekend to face the Westside Warriors Friday at 7 p.m. and the Penticton Vees Saturday at 5 p.m. They return home to host the Vernon Vipers Tuesday in a crucial match up between two teams vying for a playoff spot.

Dragon boating

Ken Goudswaard/TIMES

Chilliwack FC’s U-14 Attack dropped a heartbreaker to Langley last Saturday in the District Cup final at Townsend Park.

Blue Impact Dragon Boat team holds its first practice March 3 at Cultus Lake. The competitive/recreational co-ed team is looking for new members and all ages (and fitness levels) are welcome. The team meets at 9 a.m. (parking lot at the end of Sunnyside Boulevard) for two hours of fun on the water.

Great colour combinations

(NC)—We know intuitively what paint colours we like to have around us, but combining those colours into harmonious palettes can seem daunting. It is not surprising then that white, off-white and beige account for approximately 80 per cent of all paint sales. The irony, colour experts say, is that great colour combinations are everywhere. You do not need to invent them. You just need to discover them. Some are sitting—literally—right under your nose. Look inside your closet, at the combinations of colours you like to wear. We tend to be much more confident pulling together the colours to wear than colours to paint, but nothing prevents you from applying this same wisdom to walls and furnishings. Now, if everything in your closet is black, it may mean that white is your favourite wall colour, or it may be that you like a lot of colours and cannot bring yourself to play favourites. If your closet does not yield a palette, look to your favourite furnishings and accessories. Often, we are drawn to them for their colour. Carpets, ceramics, and textiles almost all include a range of colours, and usually, that range has a built-in ‘neutral’ that would be perfect to use on trim or ceiling. Designers advise to choose the things you love most in a room and build a palette around them, without worrying

about how it works with the things you don’t like. Edit those out of the space. The difference this makes to your décor, they say, will give you confidence and direction for pulling loose ends into colour harmony. Art galleries are another great place to get your colour bearings. Wander through them, noticing colour rather than subject. Stand too close to a painting deliberately, so you focus on the brushwork instead of the shapes. The smallest corner of a painting can reveal

great colour combinations. Even gallery walls can inspire, since curators often choose their colour to enhance your experience of the art. When it comes to colour, nature never gets it wrong. Notice the range of spring greens, the glorious summer colours in your garden or the reds, oranges, golds and browns of the fall landscape. Even the most urban setting is home to beautiful colour combinations waiting to be discovered. Look in store windows, on rusting junk piles, at peeling paint, and in debris. Once you start focusing on the colours around you, you will find beautiful palettes everywhere. Now, in fact, you can capture those discoveries on the spot—and take them with you. The next time you see a colour you want to remember, snap a photo. A new mobile application called PPG Voice of Colour can be downloaded for this purpose. The app will suggest a colour match from the PPG Pittsburgh Paints palette and conveniently, will let you purchase 8-by-12-inch chips directly from your smart phone. Designers insist there really is no reason to default to beige. If you want to surround yourself with great colour combinations, you need only be observant. Inspiration is all around you. www.newscanada.com

flies (such as the tachinid fly larvae) that live in or on pest insects. ◗ Pollinating insects (which include bees, butterflies and moths) play an essential role in plant reproduction while feeding on nectar or pollen. ◗ Soil-dwelling insects are vital for many aspects of a healthy soil. If you think you might have to use a pesticide to deal with an insect pest, check with your local authorities before you do so. Though Health Canada has registered many pesticides for use in Canada, some provinces and municipalities have placed additional restrictions on pesticide use on public and private property.

(NC)—Did you know that certain insects can actually help your lawn and garden blossom into an oasis? Though many gardeners are used to seeking out trouble-making insects, there are actually many insects living in and around your lawn that can prove beneficial. So this spring and summer take care not to harm them. Beneficial insects fall into one of four categories: ◗ Predatory insects actually feed on other pesky garden insects, such as grubs and mosquitoes. Examples of predatory insects include ladybugs, praying mantises, lacewings, syrphid fly larvae, dragonflies and ground beetles ◗ Parasitic insects are usually tiny wasps or

New online tool helps renters identify if buying is affordable

(NC)—Many renters dream of taking the money they spend on rent and using it for mortgage payments. But there’s a lot more to buying and owning a home than just paying the mortgage. There are real estate and legal fees, home inspection and moving costs, property taxes, utilities and interest rates. One of the best ways to determine if you can realistically afford to buy a home is to sit down and crunch the numbers. Instead of using a hand-held calculator or a pencil and paper, you can check out the new online Rent or Buy calculator at www. ic.gc.ca/oca/rentorbuy. It’s free and it gives you an instant snapshot of your potential as a home buyer.

Developed by Industry Canada, the calculator simply asks you to enter your current financial information (such as any savings you might have, the cost of your rent and utilities, the interest rate you might get on a mortgage) and the calculator does the rest for you. It shows you the maximum house price you can afford, the down payment needed, your closing costs, and how much money you’ll need to cover all your monthly expenses, including mortgage payments, property taxes and utilities. The web page also has links to other Government of Canada tips and resources on buying or renting a home and mortgages.

Online recipe for disaster

(NC)—With the growing interest in organic gardening, many Canadian gardeners are turning to the Internet for inspiration. But some online recipes for homemade pesticides pack an unexpected—and potentially flammable—punch. According to Health Canada, recipes that call for ingredients such as bleach, naphtha, gasoline or even kerosene are cropping up across the web, with little in the way of warnings or proper usage instructions. In a recent publication about homemade pesticides, Health Canada points out that while some recipes call for harmless ingredients (such as soap and water), recipes that include fuels can pose risks to human health or the environment if they are not handled or disposed of properly.

Other possible risks associated with the preparation of these homemade pesticides include: ◗ inhaling harmful fumes, ◗ irritation of the eyes and skin, ◗ contaminating cookware and utensils typically used to prepare food, and ◗ contaminating your clothing. Gardeners with questions about homemade pesticides may call the Pest Management Information Service at 1-800267-6315, or read the article in Health Canada’s It’s Your Health series on homemade pesticides at www.healthcanada.gc.ca/ pmra. The website also offers up a wealth of information on healthy lawns, pesticide use and regulation, and pest control.

The Roadshow comes to Chilliwack: 4 Days Only! TERRY INKLER Submitted photo

She maybe short in stature, but Tanyalee Davis stands tall in the world of female comics.

Little lady, big laughs

C

elebrate International Woman’s Day with an incredible evening of hoopla surrounded by “herlarious” female comedians. I Am Woman! Hear Me Laff! takes to the main stage at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, March 8 at 8 p.m. with a lineup of super-funny female talent headlined by the little spitfire Tanyalee Davis. Bring the girlfriends, bring the men, and get a shot of comedy that will have everyone howling with laughter in a fantastic show celebrating all that makes women special. Davis, along with her fellow comedians, will have you screaming with laughter as they highlight the comical in life. Rejoice in the women around you by bringing them down to the theatre for an evening of sidesplitting entertainment that will make their cheeks hurt from smiling. Headlining I Am Woman! Hear Me Laff! is the Ferrari of comedy Tanyalee Davis, low to the ground and kind of racy, Davis stands at 3’6” and is a comedic force to be reckoned with. What she lacks in height she makes up in tenacity. This little spitfire travels all over the globe headlining throughout the U.S., Canada and the UK. Known as “the little lady with a lot of big laughs” Davis’s perception of

people and how they perceive her exaggerates the humour of life’s “little” tasks and routines making her an incredibly entertaining performer. Highlighting her career so far was the opportunity to work on the teaser for Austin Powers 3: Gold Member and being featured in the movie For The Love of Money. She has also been spotlighted on Last Comic Standing 2, Little People, Big World and has been featured on World’s Smallest People on the TLC – The Learning Channel. Emcee for the evening is the hysterical comedian Leeann Keple. Known all over Western Canada for her performances with the Laff Riot Girls, Leeann puts the “her” in “herlarious” and thinks laughter is the best medicine there is, and most certainly less expensive than prescription drugs. As the producers of B.C.’s Annual Search for the Funniest New Female Stand Up, the Laff Riot Girls are the longest running independent stand-up comedy troupe in Western Canada. ◗ For tickets call the centre box office at 604-391-SHOW (7469) or visit in-person Monday to Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets are also available online at www. chilliwackculturalcentre.ca.

Canadian Collectors Roadshow Staff Writer

T

he Roadshow has been travelling the country in search of hidden treasures and is now in Chilliwack to see what surprises comes through the door! They will be appraising and buying everything from gold and silver jewellery and coins to antiques and collectibles. Now is the time to search through those old boxes containing the silverware you no longer want to polish, the jewellery you do not wear and the coin collections you would like to learn more about. The experts at the Roadshow will be more than happy to look through your old treasures, heirlooms and curiousities, free of charge. They will even make you an offer to buy anything their network of collectors are looking for. You could be in possession of something rare and sought after that could earn you a lot of money!!! At an event in Belleville, Ontario, a man named Larry Wilkes brought in an old jewellery box full of items he had inherited from family members, over the years. It contained gold and silver jewellery and even some costume jewellery that is desirable to collectors. “I was very pleased to see that there was this much value in that old box!” Larry commented. “I have never been much for jewellery so I didn’t know what was in there all these years.” Larry traded in his jewellery box for $3,700! Expert appraiser Luc Bergevin explains, “There has never been a better time to sell gold or silver jewellery, flatware or coins. Many people are coming to realize that since the stock market prices of precious metals are now so high there is a lot of money to be made from things that are just collecting dust!” At an event, a woman named Lise Archambault arrived with a lot of silverware. “I’m sorry I didn’t polish it”, Lise said. It turned out that among her unpolished silverware was a rare and beautiful Victorian coffee and tea service made in London, England, in 1852 by Charles and George Fox. This set is highly desirable to collectors! Lise

also had an assortment of newer sterling silverware. She decided to sell it all and received $5,000 for her items! “I am very happy that someone else could enjoy my silverware... but even happier that I can now take an overdue vacation!” Lise Joked. At another Roadshow event in Calgary, Alberta, a man named Carlos Miller brought in a sizeable coin collection, which included a rare 1966 Small Bead Canadian silver dollar. “We were really pleased to see that coin, as it is very rare. We purchased it for $6,000. We also purchased an assortment of other coins from him for their silver content,” expert appraiser Lawrence Tyee explained. He went on to say, “more and more people are cashing in their coins for their silver content, which is wise because of how much silver is worth these days!” Canadian coins from 1968 or older and American coins from 1964 or older contain silver. Many older foreign coins contain silver too. If you are not sure, the experts at the Roadshow can quickly let you know which ones contain silver and which ones are rare! The Roadshow buys and appraises all kinds of antiques and collectibles. Appraiser Sandy Johnstone recounts one of her more memorable experiences: “While working in WhiteRock, B.C. a gentleman came to my table with two boxes full of things. In the second box he had a large collection of castiron banks that our collectors love and several tin wind-up toys which are also collectible... especially his tin wind-up Popeye on a tricycle made by Linemar in the 1950’s. It was still in its original box and in perfect condition. What a find! We wound up giving him over $2,000 for these gems! Everyone was super happy!”

See you at the roadshow!

here are a number of novelty consumables that consistently reappear in the marketplace during the days leading up to March 17. These will most undoubtedly include items such as green-tinted beverages like beer and milkshakes for example. Although this may be an amusing way to recognize St. Patrick, the Patron Saint of Ireland, a culinary adventure of Irish cuisine would be more nostalgic. Why not make a classic Irish dish to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day instead? Classic Irish food is usually inexpensive fare, and this recipe pretty much follows that same path. This rustic casserole is made up of potatoes and sausages and baked to perfection with a combination of chicken broth, cream, and Guinness beer. I always question a recipe when it calls for water to be added. Why not add wine, broth, juice, or even beer? How much flavour does water have? Zero. If you want a dish to taste wonderful, and full of flavour, could you not add something that has more distinction than water? I always address this topic to my culinary students and preach creativity and improvisation when it comes to preparing a meal. Guinness beer is a

Members of G.W. Graham’s Treble Makers and senior jazz band show they are number one.

Musicians in perfect tune ham has won,” said Graham’s music director Janine Webster. The jazz band were on the big stage ready to perform when they were informed they had won the grand prize of a Ludwig drum set worth more than $2,000. They also took home two trophies, stick bags with drumsticks, a guitar case and “funky” red music stands, which all the kids will sign and save as souvenirs. “The kids were amazing and wonderful ambassadors for Chilliwack,” Webster said. “A lot of people were asking us ‘Where’s Chilliwack?’”

Violinist Alisa van Dijik has been practising five hours a day to get concerto just right

V

iolinist Alisa van Dijik will use all her talents to tackle the technicallydemanding Violin Concerto by Finnish composer Jean Sibelius at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Saturday. This very challenging concerto of the romantic violin repertoire is, according to van Dijik, a special exercise of fingered octaves and double stops. Van Dijik started work on this concerto in the fourth year of her undergraduate degree at UBC. Now, with a master’s degree completed in 2008, she has the opportunity to perform this masterwork on stage with a full orchestra. Van Dijik said she practises more than five hours a day to prepare for the performance. She describes the concerto as a borderline romantic/modern piece and she will be performing the revised 1905 version. Van Dijik

WIN ME!

will perform the concerto on her Hermann Janzen 2009 Viotti Stradivarius model violin, chosen from the Fraser Valley Luthier in 2009. Written by Sibelius in 1904 and revised in 1905, the concerto was first played in Helsinki, Finland, the composer’s homeland. Sibelius has written equal voices for the soloist and the orchestra so it is a very rewarding composition for all the symphony’s musicians to perform. The CMO and maestro Johan Louwershiemer are also pleased to host for the first time special guests from the faculty of the Chilliwack Academy of Music. The faculty teachers will open the evening’s performance and the CMO board of directors is looking forward to the collaboration. The CMYO will perform selections from Handel’s “Water Music,” and in the second half of the program the adult orchestra will

play Dvorak’s “Carnival Overture.” With this Overture, Dvorak once again sets folk themes to classical form with this second of three overtures depicting nature, life and love. The “Carnival Overture” depicts life with a rousing carnival atmosphere. The two orchestras will join together for the finale in what is becoming a tradition thoroughly enjoyed by both the audience and two orchestras. “Morning, Noon and Night in Vienna” by Franz Von Suppe will be a perfect finish to an evening of music.

Buffy Sainte-Marie Buffy Sainte-Marie, the Academy Awardwinning Canadian First Nations musician, composer, visual artist, educator and social activist, brings her songs to Chilliwack for a special concert at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre March 4 at 7:30 p.m. This is a special presentation of the Mission Folk Music Festival.

REASONABLE • HARDWORKING • DEPENDABLE

Aries March 21 - April 19: Continue to rest, lie low. Contemplate: how have you come here, and where are you going? It’s a little too early to make plans, as many factors, and your own certainty, will “show up missing” over the next few weeks – significant revisions will arise in April. Complete projects and duties now, rather than starting anything new. What seems a dull Sunday might transform, this night or Tuesday, into romance or a pleasure foray. Your money luck improves over the next four weeks. Tackle growing chores midweek. Relationships have a strong message for you Thursday night onward.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Your mellow, understanding mood continues. Relationships are changing (2008-2023). This month is an excellent time to figure out why – why they’ve changed, what you can do, the meaning of it all. Your vision and thoughts are broader and more acute than usual. You’ll be surprised/gratified by the nuggets of affection and optimism you uncover. (That’s partly because, now to April 3, your popularity rises.) Chase money – carefully – Sunday eve to Tuesday. Travel, talk, messages fill midweek: say heartfelt, loving things. Settle into home Friday/Saturday. Finish, don’t start, projects.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Tackle chores. Protect health; eat and dress sensibly. Though March is always a month of drudgery for you, it will be lightened this time by a relationship. A friend could be all talk, or physically intimate – the former is a lot safer. (You aren’t really in a good mating phase before June, not in an excellent one until September – before this, sex is great, but not a basis for life-mating.) Your popularity and optimism rise Sunday eve to Tuesday – be happy! But retreat to rest, contemplate and exercise charity midweek. Your energy and charisma rise Friday on. Start nothing new, big.

Taurus April 20-May 20: You’ve felt a bit put-upon, that luck wasn’t on your side, these last few weeks. That changes, Monday onward. Your gracefulness and subtle magnetism return; your popularity surges upward, puzzlement will dissolve. Still, don’t start new projects or new romances before April. You often judge yourself by your possessions. That will cause you much wondering and bemusement in May/June – but these months of indecision will be only part of a longer phase of good money/possessions luck, from April to July, which in turn kicks off a hugely lucky year of money, lasting to mid-2013.)

Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The mysteries continue. But you’ll solve a lot of them Sunday eve to Tuesday, when your energy and alertness return. (Passivity promotes mystery; action solves it.) And Tuesday night to Thursday, when money luck (combined with action) can reveal the forces and currents underlying many aspects of your life, and reveal a profitable, satisfying road ahead. Take action! But stop Thursday; sit back, relax, have a coffee and communicate Friday/Saturday. All week, start nothing that will demand further (supportive) efforts after this week. E.g., buy stocks, don’t start a business.

Gemini May 21-June 20: The accent continues on ambition, reputation, mingling with “big shots” – considering your poor luck of the last few years, take a defensive rather than daring stance here. Strictly avoid starting ambitious new projects before April 4. (A slowdown starts soon, technically March 12. This will bring back a former hope, or “light lover” – but that’s next week onward.) You’ve been more gregarious the last few weeks: now, through March, socializing mingles with “quiet joys.” BTW, those years of bad luck end in June; bad karma ends in late August. Then a year of splendid fortune begins.

Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Relationships dominate all month, but this week the aces fall in your lap. Take advantage of your position, luck and strength, especially Wednesday – but keep in mind the need to please another, to co-operate and work as a team. Strictly avoid starting any new projects before April 4; finish instead. (A period of slowdowns, mistakes and indecision technically begin March 12.) You’re hopeful Sunday morning, but to little avail. Retreat this p.m. through Tuesday eve: meditate, finish chores, rest. Your energy and charisma surge midweek. Examine money (buy nothing) Friday/Saturday.

Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: You’re on a wee winning streak – take risks, be adventurous. But don’t start any large projects (ones that will demand your participation later in March). Sunday morning’s mellow but not successful – leave love for the moment. Be ambitious Sunday eve to Tuesday predawn – the path is smooth. An ally will either fight you or promote you. Wishes come true Tuesday night to Thursday: optimism, social delights and entertainment arrive. A love interest could climax, become an affair. But retreat, rest and contemplate Friday/Saturday. Plan nothing big, start nothing big this week. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The accent lies on home, family, property, security, retirement, gardening, nutrition, stomach and soul. Diving into any of these will give you a feeling of satisfaction – but finish rather than begin projects, in these or any zones. A romantic glance, a friendly but rushed conversation, could spark an affectionate interlude, but any relationship begun now will inherit indecision. (And an old flame might return later in March, complicating everything.) These are just a “stirring” – soon, April onward (into 2013) a serious sweet bond will arise. Good career luck midweek.

March 4 - 10, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Travel, communicate, perform errands, do paperwork – do these quickly, now, as a major slow-down hits this area next week, which will leave you “out of the loop,” planning-wise and data-wise, to April 4. (Speaking of planning, make none now; wait until April, after the situation has changed.) Life’s depths, sexual urges and financial actions fill Sunday eve to Tuesday. A mellow, wise mood flows Tuesday night to Thursday: dive into culture, international affairs, intellectual pursuits, and love. Luck accompanies you Sunday eve to Thursday, so act. A romantic mood creeps in. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Chase money – but don’t start any large projects (especially in monetary, friendship or communication zones) before April 4. Your home becomes a more affectionate place in March. You’ll be talking, mailing, travelling all month, too, but make your major contacts now, not later. Schedule meetings for April, not March. Relationships bless you Sunday eve to Tuesday: a property question might arise. Delve into intimacy, big finance, research or health problems Tuesday night to Thursday – you might make a major, lucky investment. Wisdom, but not much luck, Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your energy, charisma and clout ride a peak wave – but the results of your actions might not be what you want, if you begin projects now (or anytime before April 4). Finish things, instead. You might meet a splendid friend soon (around March 13, but it could occur anytime March 5 onward). Tackle chores, protect your health, Sunday eve to Tuesday. Tuesday night to Thursday brings great relationships, exciting meetings and new opportunities (but remember my advice about new projects). (You’ll see these people again midnext week.) Take care with money, intimacy Friday/Saturday.
