Rapist’s fate could hinge on his native ancestry BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

Army base may be ‘padlocked’

A

Chilliwack man will be sentenced in June after pleading guilty to breaching a longterm supervision order imposed after he brutally raped a woman in 2002. Daniel Alphonse Paul could face more jail for breaching the order, which expires next year. But his sentence may be impacted by a recent Supreme Court decision regarding the sentencing of First Nations offenders. In 2003, a jury found Paul guilty of sexually assaulting a woman he knew in her Vedder Crossing home. Paul beat the woman, forced her to perform various sex acts, used a knife to scratch her neck and threatened to kill her. After Paul’s conviction, Crown counsel sought to have Paul designated as a dangerous offender, which carries with it an indefinite jail sentence. The court heard that Paul’s behaviour established a pattern of violence that put the public at risk. However, while Paul met the definition of being a dangerous offender, Justice William Grist found that Paul also could be classified as a longterm offender. That designation requires long-term supervision after jail rather than an indefinite prison sentence. “The present risk is clear,” Grist said in 2003.“The question here is the likelihood of effective treatment.” A clinical psychologist wrote that Paul scored “high” on the See RAPE, Page 10

alerie Stevenson’s meagre monthly public service pension was down to $13.33 last month after various deductions, which included the MSP premium she now has to pay. “All the rates of everything have gone up,” the retired senior said on Friday. NDP leader Adrian Dix and Chilliwack-Hope byelection candidate Gwen O’Mahony were at Stevenson’s mobile home park in Cultus Lake to discuss what they call the “impact of BC Liberal polices” on regular people. Also at Stevenson’s home were Jennifer Woodroff and Richard Hammond, two individuals at different stages of their lives who are having a hard time finding work. “When you do find work it’s hard to keep it,” said Hammond, a young man from Hope. “I can’t find anything right now,” Woodford said of her job search. “I even applied at Winners for $9.50 an

hour. . . . And at the same time the cost of everything is going up.” Dix said Liberal policies that increased MSP premiums, BC Hydro rates and the carbon tax are put on the backs of consumers and are “used to subsidize big business tax cuts.” The Liberal government continues to brand itself as the free enterprise choice for B.C. with the message that a low-tax, business-friendly environment needs to be fostered and maintained to create jobs. Dix says this message forgets about the middle class. “Hydro rates and MSP premiums, those are flat taxes whether you make $40,000 or $400,000, these things have an impact on the economy too,” he told the Times. “The idea that the middle class should see an increase to subsidize other areas is I think, not justified in terms of its effect on the economy and we’ve seen this over 10 years. This has been the lowest period of economic growth in my lifetime.”

T

he Canadian Forces’ long history in Chilliwack may be coming to a close. On Wednesday, civilian workers at Army Support Unit (ASU) Chilliwack were told that all 18 jobs at the base held by Union of National Defence Employees (UNDE) workers had been eliminated. The 18 jobs—filled by a total of 24 local employees—were part of 1,119 Canadian Forces jobs across the country that were lost. T. Mark Miller, the B.C. vicepresident for UNDE, said that in talks with the Canadian Forces, the union was told ASU Chilliwack would be closed. Miller said the job losses would come into effect for the 2013/14 fiscal year, which begins next spring. Last month, the Ottawa Citizen obtained a copy of a Canadian Army plan that would cut 700 civilian workers. The plan talked about the “potential closure of ASUs.” Of the job cuts announced Wednesday, 585 were in the Army. Beyond the impending closure of ASU Chilliwack, Miller said the union has not been told what the army plans to do with its infrastructure.

t’s time for the Chilliwack school district to put money back into its elementary school libraries and teacher-librarians, according to the Chilliwack Teachers’ Association. That was part of the message president Katharin Midzain brought to an invitation-only budget consultation hosted by the school district last Tuesday to get input for its 2012-13 budget. “Elementary libraries have been decimated in terms of their budgets,” she said to the Times this week. “That needs to be restored.” At t h e m e e t i n g , w h i c h a l s o heard from the Chilliwack District Parents Advisory Council, CUPE, the Chilliwack Principals and Viceprincipals Association, two high school students and two parents of students with special needs, Midzain said the district should start by giving libraries the money they need to update languishing collections. “They need to have resources to be run well,” she said. “Even if that’s a one-time restoration of books that goes in there. I mean, that’s equipment that lasts 20 years. A library book has a Since 2002, however, it’s been up to shelf life of 20 years, unlike a computer school districts to decide how much that has a shelf life of a year or two.” of their per-pupil funding goes into The CTA would also like the district teacher-librarian time. to start funding a minimum amount According to the B.C. Teacherof teacher-librarian time at all schools Librarians’ Association, that change based on the number of divisions or has led to a 30 per cent loss in teacherclasses at each school. librarian staffing across the province, “Wewouldliketoseeusableteacher- and Chilliwack teacher-librarians say librarian time in they’ve felt that every elementary loss here. “I ended up leaving school,” she said.

Katharin Midzain

Every year the district gives school principals one “pot” of money to divide between librarian time, learning assistance time and lead tech time, they explain, so more time for LA teachers means less time for teacherlibrarians and vice versa. “I a l w a y s t h o u g h t t h a t w a s immoral,” said Hunt. “I thought we shouldn’t have to fight for one or the other or cut them both in half.” He said librarians don’t want more time at the expense of learning assistance, but that cutting library for more learning assistance doesn’t make sense either, and the two should not be linked. “Why we’re tied together makes no sense to me,” said Gillies, who now works at Robertson elementary. “I reach everybody from pre-school up to Grade 6, and the learning assistance teacher needs to reach those kids who need the one-on-one.” The system doesn’t make sense to Chilliwack Community Services family literacy facilitator Pamela Auffray either. Auffray works with families in downtown Chilliwack, where many kids start kindergarten with low language skills, and she said linking LA and library time is “robbing Peter to pay Paul.” As the mother of a special needs student, she knows how important LA is for kids with diagnosed learning

disabilities. What concerns her are the students on the verge of a diagnosis who don’t get LA time and who could be left behind without the extra support a teacher-librarian can provide. “That is the crack, and that’s them falling through it,” she said. Another problem some see with the system is that it doesn’t impact all schools equally. Since inner city schools in Chilliwack have some of the highest learning assistance needs in the district, they also tend to see the deepest cuts to library time, whereas schools with fewer LA needs (often in more affluent neighbourhoods) have more teacherlibrarian time. “To some degree you’re seeing the have schools and the have-nots,” said Gillies. The solution proposed by Midzain and the CTA at Tuesday’s budget consultation is for the district to fund a minimum one-hour per week of teacher librarian time for each class a school has. “The value in that is that all students would receive a reasonable amount of face-to-face work with a specialist in media literacy, book talks, book exchange, research, all the library skills that have been relegated to nothing lately,” said Midzain. “We consider 60 minutes per class very minimal.” Superintendent Michael Audet was not available for comment by press time, but in an earlier email about library time at Central elementary, he said high-needs schools are provided with extra teacher time depending on the needs of students and that extra time for learning assistance doesn’t mean libraries are less important at those schools. “The fact that there is a smaller amount of teacher-librarian time compared to learning assistance doesn’t mean that the library is not a focus,” he wrote. “It just means that the decision was made to focus more time on working with children to teach them to read and less time for a teacher to work in the library.” ◗ The preliminary 2012-13 budget will be presented to the board of education May 8. Trustees will vote on the final budget May 22.

Carbon tax relief applauded by greenhouse growers Just buying votes, says Conservative candidate John Martin BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he provincial government announced $7.6 million in carbon tax relief for greenhouse growers, a grant program Chilliwack-Hope Liberal byelection candidate Laurie Throness alluded to

last week during a horseback photoop designed to focus on agriculture. The announcement of $6 million in grants for greenhouse vegetable growers and $1.6 million for flower growers was made by Minister of Agriculture Don McRae at a Delta greenhouse on Tuesday. The $7.6 million correlates to the amount of carbon tax B.C.’s greenhouse growers pay in a year. LastThursday,Throness was asked by Chilliwack Agricultural Commission chair and poultry farmer Walter Dyck when the government was “going to look after the carbon tax for us.” Dyck said that fuel is the second most expensive input into his operation. Throness told Dyck that McRae’s

Byelection

✓2012

announcement was coming. “Greenhouses were identified in the job strategy which came out in September as a priority for the government,” Throness said Wednesday. The B.C. greenhouse industry has been telling the government for years that the carbon tax is a “significant challenge” for growth of the sector. “The bottom line is B.C. growers

will be able to better compete with producers in the U.S.A. and Mexico as a result of the carbon tax grant,” B.C. Greenhouse Growers’ Association president Peter Cummings said in a government press release. While fuel is the largest expense for greenhouse growers, Dyck told Throness that fuel is number two on his list of costs as a poultry producer. Throness couldn’t say if further relief for other agriculture sectors was coming, but he did say the entire carbon tax is under review. “It does demonstrate the government’s concern for competitiveness in business and for agriculture in particular,” he said. Conservative byelection candidate John Martin called the greenhouse carbon tax announcement an

attempt to “buy votes in this upcoming byelection with taxpayers’ money.” He said the process is wrong on two fronts. “Why should every other British Columbian pay for the carbon tax but greenhouse growers be exempted?” Martin asked. “Secondly, why does the government create a bureaucracy to collect the carbon tax and then create a second bureaucracy to give the carbon tax back to greenhouse growers?” Eligible growers for the grant money must be operational in 2012, have had 2011 sales greater than $20,000, use at least 455 square metres for commercial production, and be able to include their 2011 fuel receipts in their applications.

Pipeline twinning getting political BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

growing group of eastern Fr a s e r Va l l e y re s i d e n t s opposed to Kinder Morgan’s proposed oil pipeline twinning through the area are trying to make it a byelection issue in ChilliwackHope. The loose network of environmentalists, First Nations elders and citizens has organized a meeting next week to “share information and concerns about the transport of tar sands and the risks for communities along the pipeline route.” Kinder Morgan Canada is in the early stages of a proposed $3.8 billion twinning of its 1,150-kilometre Trans Mountain pipeline, which was built in 1953. The company has completed an assessment of commercial interest in the project and will announce the scope of the proposed project soon. Through Chilliwack, the pipeline runs under farmers’ fields, school yards, suburban lawns, the Vedder River and Kinkora Golf Course. Meeting organizer and Chiliwack resident Sheila Muxlow said all candidates for the Chilliwack-Hope byelection have been invited to attend the meeting. As of Wednesday, Muxlow said she hadn’t heard from any of the

candidates but she planned on following up on Thursday. Fr a s e r Va l l e y m e m b e r s o f Parliament, and mayors and councillors from Chilliwack and Abbotsford have also been invited. A number of individuals have been listed as involved in the meeting, including: Eddie Gardner, a Skwah First Nation elder; and Mary Forstbauer, a Chilliwack organic farmer and president of the Organic Growers Assocation of B.C. Concern about the company’s plan first sprouted after a Jan. 24 leak of 110,000 litres of crude oil from a holding tank at Kinder Morgan’s Sumas Mountain terminal site. There was also a spill at the company facility on Sumas Mountain in 2005 and there have been two leaks, in 2007 and 2009, in Burnaby. While those concerned about twinning the pipeline point to such incidents as evidence of risk, the company points out that there has been no incidents through Chilliwack in 59 years. And while the company has an existing right-of-way, the project will require environmental reviews, regulatory approvals, and the consent of a number of First Nations bands. ◗ The meeting is scheduled for April 11 at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the Abbotsford campus of the University of the Fraser Valley.

Teacher earns trip to Victoria

BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

A

s politics take centre stage in the Chilliwack-Hope byelection, one local teacher is gearing up to spend four days in Victoria to learn more about how B.C.’s political system works. Hillary Devries, a School District No. 33 support teacher, is one of 18 teachers from across the province chosen last month to attend the B.C. Teachers’ Institute on Parliamentary Democracy April 25 to 28.

An intensive educational program for social studies teachers teaching Grades 4 to 12, the institute includes briefings by key legislative figures and behind-thescenes tours of the Legislature. Te a c h e r s w h o a t t e n d a l s o work together to develop gradeappropriate lesson plans about B.C.’s parliamentary system. The plans are then posted online for teachers around the province to use. D e v r i e s , w h o i s c u r re n t l y working on a district program for intermediate students with

reading difficulties, applied for the institute last year when she was still teaching at CHANCE alternate school. “I was just really interested because it looked like an amazing learning experience and I just always think it’s great as an educator to continually be learning and growing as an individual,” she said. As part of her acceptance in the program, Devries will also be presented with a Teaching Excellence Certificate by Lieutenant-Governor Steven Point.

A Hiding Nation I write this to those who are living a lie The lie from our hearts that we dare not deny “Your best life now, live it up, live it free!” But this life leads to ruin as I trust you will see

If this world could simply comprehend the magnitude of sin If our Father flicked a switch and we could see our stain within If we saw how sin controls us… how it ruins every life – Proverbs 19:3 Would we all then run to Jesus, would we seek to end our strife? – James 4:7-8

We want all the money, we want all the praise We want all the glory to the end of our days We want to be buzzed and have all the toys We want to be comfy amidst all the noise

But our sinful nature guides us when we lack in saving grace – 1 Corinthians 2:14 We want to live, but not with God; we love this world’s embrace – Romans 8:7 We’re bent on self-autonomy and hiding from God’s truth – Psalm 53:1 As it reveals what we really are… and have been from our youth – Matthew 15:19

But there’s something deep down that we know to be true A Day of Judgment awaits and it’s long overdue – Romans 14:10-12 Do we have all the answers, is our fate sealed? – Isaiah 64:6 And where is our place when all is revealed? – Matthew 25:46

We all know that there is a God; it’s written on our hearts – Ecclesiastes 3:11 But religions in this world today have many different starts Mankind brings much confusion… each belief a new façade – 2 Timothy 4:3 But I preach not religion; it’s a relationship with God – Jeremiah 24:7

Thus you need to know God and that He is Love – 1 John 4:8 His holy perfection shines down from above – Psalm 99:9 He’s Righteous and Faithful, in Him we can trust – Psalm 145:13-20 But beware my dear friends that our God is Just – Deuteronomy 32:4

I ask you first to seek the Lord and call upon His Name – Acts 2:21 Give your life to Him and pray to never be the same – Psalm 51:1-2 You might be saved this instant if the Spirit dwells inside – Romans 8:9 Or your time may come when fire you tread and gold replaces pride – Zechariah 13:9

At first it sounds pleasant, He is fair… that is good But I think you will find that you misunderstood The Judgment is Hell for all who have sinned – Matthew 25:41 And as He is Just, He cannot rescind – Numbers 23:19

And when you’re His, and He is yours, you’ll have a brand new heart – Ezekiel 11:19 God’s Spirit now will dwell within… He never will depart – Ephesians 1:13-14 You’ll be a new creation with much to rearrange – 2 Corinthians 5:17 You never can prepare for this remarkable change

But how harsh of a sin… perhaps murder or rape Or a thief in the night maybe he won’t escape Surely some sin is petty and we’re mostly divine – Romans 3:10-18 Then you don’t understand, there is no fine line – James 2:10

The sin that you once loved to live will now just bring you shame – Galatians 5:16 As the Spirit brings conviction… a Godly life will be your aim – 1 John 2:3-5 But not because you have to, as religions will declare This will be your hearts desire and a plea in every prayer – Ezekiel 36:27

You see, God and sin cannot coexist – Romans 3:23 He simply won’t stand for this stain in His midst – Isaiah 59:2 Whether big or small in our tolerant eyes All sin weighs the same and all mankind dies – Romans 6:23a

A Christian still will fight with sin and they will struggle every day – Galatians 5:17 As they have a sinful nature that will constantly betray – Romans 7:15 It’s how they feel about their sin… that reveals a change therein And if one doesn’t hate their sin then the Spirit’s not within – 1 John 1:8

So have you broken an oath or told a white lie? Looked at someone with lust with your wandering eye? – Matthew 5:27-28 Have you disobeyed your parents or shown rage without reason? – Romans 1:30 Held anything above God, ‘cause that’s idolatry and that’s treason – Ephesians 5:5

So I understand if you aren’t clear… this is a huge event – 1 Corinthians 2:10-12 How could one be made anew to such a big extent? Our transformation comes from God by no merit of our own – 2 Corinthians 4:6-7 As only He could change to flesh a heart that once was stone – Ezekiel 36:26

The truth is we all stumble every day of our lives – Ecclesiastes 7:20 And we’ll just keep on sinning ‘til our Lord arrives We sin against God so there is no chance to live – Psalm 5:4-6 Our good deeds aren’t enough for God to forgive – Romans 3:20

We are made in God’s image and require the Holy Spirit – John 3:5 And we’ll always feel empty ‘til received and we feel it – John 6:63 This deep abyss cannot be filled through worldly things we buy But through God alone who grants us this fulfilling life’s supply – 1 Corinthians 6:19

It paints an ugly picture, and what a horrible thought We live a blink and then we die and all will be for naught But this is where I change my tone and give this poem a shift I start with a simple question, “Will you receive a gift?” – Romans 6:23b

Nature makes it plain to see … a God through His creation – Romans 1:20 So it’s clearly not a hidden God but more a hiding nation – Hebrews 4:13 Salvation becomes hopeless since we’d rather be apart But God commissioned many shepherds to direct the hardened heart – Ephesians 4:11-12

The greatest gift we ever get is one we don’t deserve And in this case it’s the greatest news that touches every nerve – Romans 1:16, 17 We all are lost, but can be found, and God has saved the day The stain be gone, washed pure as snow, behold the only Way – Isaiah 1:18

If the Gospel is to reach the world it only need be preached – Mark 16:15 But many preach a selfish cause and therefore are impeached – Matthew 7:15 You have to find a righteous one who preaches from God’s Word Who’ll point you to the scriptures… to test all that you heard – Acts 17:11

This saving Grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me God came to earth and died for us so we could all be free – John 3:16 And in His death His blood was shed to cover all our sin – Ephesians 1:7 So look to Him, He’ll cover yours no matter where you’ve been – Romans 10:9

Though this world and Christianity will never get along – 1 John 2:15-17 And a Christian, close to God, will never feel that they belong They will shine His light to draw your sight to this most blest reward – Matthew 5:16 As there is one arm of salvation which extends out from our Lord – John 14:6 Ref: www.biblegateway.com

Nickel’s worth of penny thoughts I

t’s long past time that the lowly penny has met its demise. On top of all the reason and rationale offered for tossing it into the forgotten piggybank of history, its very existence has been a personal annoyance to me. My thoughts are worth more than a penny, thank you very much. Indeed, inflation has long since pushed the value of my brain’s production into the realm of the plugged nickel. Or so I have been told on many occasions. I am amused, however, at the musings of those who worry that “penny” adages will now necessarily fall out of the language. Fear has been expressed that such expressions as “Penny wise, pound foolish” and “In for a penny, in for a pound” will pass outside of the ordinary understanding, as we move forward into a non-cents economy. Yeah. As if a pound of tobacco (the quid, which has since been reduced to a mouthful) is still legal tender in this country. Somehow, those expressions survived a century of poundless currency in Canada. It’s doubtful there will be any significant effect on them, now the penny has dropped. People still routinely refer to the quarter as “two bits,” without realizing that they are referring to an archaic Spanish dollar equivalent,

BOB GROENEVELD

Be Our Guest which was chopped into pieces of eight, with each “bit” worth twelve and a half cents. Frankly, most folks don’t know what they’re talking about, anyway, when they babble off mindless adages. Underway is a word in common usage today, bastardized from the original “under weigh,” as in: when a Spanish galleon or other vessel weighed anchor (that is, the anchor was pulled up so it was prepared to sail… or steam… out of port, and get “under weigh.”) It doesn’t matter that there are only a few of us pedantically inclined folks left who know why it means what it means, the meaning of “underway” is perfectly understood in the modern context. (See? I told you my thoughts are worth a plugged nickel.) But watch for subtle changes in the language to reflect the penny’s demise. For instance, we might currently suggest the worthlessness of an object, animal, person… or thought… with the phrase, “It’s not worth a red cent!” Notwithstanding that pennies

never were terribly red, and that they quickly turn brown—or at least, they used to in the old days when we still had pennies—I predict that in the near future that phrase will resurge, but without the “not.” “It’s worth a penny,” will come to mean that it has no value at all. Or perhaps the phrase will morph into something like, “It’s about as useful as a penny.” In keeping with my earlier recognition of the value of my thoughts, I’ll make a further prediction with questionable currency: the nickel, too, is doomed. Consider the two-dollar bill that was reincarnated as a twoonie not too many years after the dollar bill solidified into a loonie. It will soon become obvious to even the slowest bureaucrats and politicians that removing the nickel from circulation can easily turn the dime into a new penny, with the simple shift of a decimal place. Or maybe the nickel will be allowed stay on as a “new” ha’penny dredged from our currency’s past. Perhaps the best thing to come out of federal budget’s execution of the penny is that we finally have a clear admission from Ottawa: the Harper Government doesn’t make cents. ◗ Bob Groeneveld is editor of the LangleyAdvance.

erhaps the best that could be said of last week’s federal budget is that it could have been much, much worse. The Conservative government is working to get the country out of a deficit. They are doing this entirely by cutting back on spending, rather than raising taxes on anyone—even the very wealthiest or most profitable. As the party with the most seats in the House of Commons, they can certainly chart their own course. But does that course send them sailing straight onto the rocky shores of hypocrisy? For much of the past year, the Tories have been pleased to focus on matters they couldn’t get through as a minority. Tough on crime legislation was near the top of their agenda, along with the controversial purchase of new fighter jets for the military. Yet in this budget we see that Public Safety, which includes Corrections Canada and federal policing, is being cut by $687.9 million over three years. The military is losing $1.1 billion over the same timeframe. How are we to afford locking up more offenders, for more time? How will this put more police on the streets? Perhaps the Conservatives are doing what they rightly condemned the Chretien-era Liberals for: downloading costs. Offenders who spend less than two years in jail do “provincial time,” in jails that cost the taxpayers of each province. Provinces and municipal governments pick up a lot of the costs of policing. As for the military, with the jet purchases, it looks as if the Conservatives will succumb to the lure of flashy technology over more trained soldiers and officers. How many boots-on-the-ground peacekeeping missions or disaster relief projects will the Canadian Forces be able to undertake if its reduced funds are being sucked into the upkeep of a new fleet of aircraft? With their majority in hand, the Tories will be able to take all the credit, or blame, for this budget.

Teens don’t always know what’s good for them Editor: Re: Tan ban just a shade of stupid, Times, March 27. I am writing in response to Mr. Carradice’s letter concerning the proposed law to do with age restrictions on tanning beds. I think that this law is beneficial in many ways. First off, I am 18 years old, and I do not think that this law is an insult to “our younger citizens” because even though many young people are intelligent and can make good decisions, many cannot. I know many teens that make bad decisions every day. They are not thinking of the future consequences from their actions of today. Many teenagers live in the moment. Secondly, the benefits to this proposal are great. Not only can tanning beds cause cancer (they don’t only affect the skin, but the eyes as well) they also cause premature aging of the skin, which makes the skin wrinkly, saggy, leathery, and causes age spots. Also, if the tanning beds are not cleaned properly, diseases can be spread. Education about the effects of tanning beds may stop a few teens from using them, but not the vast majority. For example, in school, kids are educated about the dangers of smoking cigarettes and marijuana however this does not stop kids from smoking them. They are aware of the dangers, but

don’t care because they are not thinking of future effects. So educating people is a good idea, but it won’t stop teens from using tanning beds. Putting an age restriction on tanning beds is a good idea because I know that no one wants cancer or prematurely aged skin. This way, someone is sticking up for the health of teens when the teens aren’t looking out for themselves. Alexandria Jones Chilliwack

Poor choice made in transportation Editor: Having been born and raised in B.C. and lived in Chilliwack it is hard to believe that costs for transportation for the public are dictated by government corporations and not the people or elected

officials. When autocratic government corporations take charge then there is no end to price increases and bad decisions in favour of the bottom line. When governments get lazy and sloppy they start to sell off the assets of the province to a detrimental end for the taxpayers. When railways were needed for future use of transportion to areas of the province, they were sold off. Government allows their corporations to make the decisons to somehow deflect the flack from government. When the Lower Mainland had the chance for rapid transit over new bridges and highways the provincal government choose poorly for the public and choose highways and bridges when the price of fuel is rocketing out of this world and public transport was the only good choice. The chance for train service

from Chilliwack, a new interurban, will be rejected at the polls, should soon show the disatisfaction in the former stronghold. The Skytrain line should have been extended through Surrey to Mt. Lehman right up the Fraser Highway where it is pointed now and likewise throughout the system lines to UBC and elsewhere in the logical routes. Poor planning by the government of B.C. has caused the problems that from out here in Eastern Canada now look very bad and somehow silly as the price of transportation in B.C. makes it just awful to imagine $1.40 a litre gas with tolls on bridges and highways, as the leader of the ruling party slips in the polls. There is nothing environmental about anything except the added pollution with still no means of reasonable transportaion to Vancouver from the Fraser Valley. Wayne Robertson Hamilton, Ont.

the “Great Experiences” that young people are experiencing through them. Although I am far more familiar with the regulations governing sites falling under the Mines Act, I am sure that Worksafe BC must require similar precautions for people working at “heights.” I am not sure of the height of the roof on which the young ladies were standing but I am sure that, because there are no handrails between them and the ground, they should have been using appropriate fall arresting equipment while working there. If one or more of them had fallen off that roof, it would have been a very bad “Great Experience.” I have seen far too many people working on roofs here in Chilliwack and elsewhere without the appropriate safe guards in place. For an example of the result of one such situation one need only refer to what happened to one of B.C.’s Premiers in the not too distant past. Jim Balmer Chilliwack

News RAPE, from page 1 psychopathy index. But while three different psychologists found that Paul presented a high or moderate-to-high risk of reoffending, one noted that “there was a possibility of a significant drop in the risk of re-offending should [Paul] participate and benefit from a number of recommended treatment programs.” Grist stated that there was a “reasonable prospect” that his risk to the public could be managed and designated Paul a longterm offender. “In my view,” Grist wrote “the evidence establishes a difficult but nonetheless reasonable prospect of eventual control of the risk of [Paul]’s re-offending in this manner through programs while incarcerated, coupled with continued maintenance programs and extensive monitoring on his release to the community.” Paul was sentenced to four years in jail (including two years time served), to be followed by five years of community supervision. But last year, Paul was charged with breaching the conditions of his supervision four times—twice by consuming alcohol and twice by failing to reside as directed. In sentencing Paul in 2003, Grist noted that “through much of the decade preceding the present offences, [Paul] abused alcohol and prescription drugs. Many, but not all, of the offences were associated with substance abuse.” Paul has pleaded guilty to one

breach by failing to reside as directed and will be sentenced in early June. He is currently being held in custody. Awaiting decision Paul’s sentence may be affected by an important Supreme Court decision last month. The court reduced the sentences of two First Nations men convicted of breaching their longterm supervision orders. Like Paul, the men had long criminal records and were designated as long-term offenders following sexual offences. Similarly, both were also ordered not to consume drugs or drink alcohol. The two men were each originally sentenced to three years in jail. One of the men had his sentence reduced to one year by the B.C. Court of Appeals and upheld by the Supreme Court decision. That same decision reduced the sentence of another man to one year. Six of seven justices said the original sentences failed to abide by to a Parliamentary order that asked judges to consider offenders’ aboriginal backgrounds, when applicable. Critics of the decision have argued that while the principal may spare some First Nations offenders jail, it also often ignores the fact that it puts First Nations communities at risk.

Asked what he would do about the carbon tax, as an example of a tax that hits everybody, Dix wouldn’t confirm if it would be killed or kept, but affirmed the proceeds shouldn’t go into general revenue. “If we are going to have a carbon tax we need to link it to promoting transit,” he said, adding that the BC Conservatives have promised to kill the carbon tax without explaining where the revenue will be made up. “It’s the NDP who are the fiscal conservatives,” he said. When asked about Dix’s criticisms, Chilliwack-Hope BC Liberal byelection candidate Laurie Throness told the Times that these incremental rate increases can’t be looked at without the broader context. He said that MSP premiums are geared towards income and they serve as a reminder that health care is not free. He added that hydro rates “went up a little bit but we still have the third lowest hydro rates in North America.” He also said ICBC rates went up by 2.1 per cent this year, the rate of inflation, but this was after four years with no increases. “There are inflationary pressures in a successful economy, average weekly income has gone up,” he said. “Overall British Columbians are doing better today than they were 10 years ago.” Dix and O’Mahony were both also asked about the latest poll numbers that put the NDP at 43 per cent with the Liberals and Conservatives tied at 23 per cent. Dix said polls were important for political debate but that was about it. “It doesn’t matter what the polls say,” O’Mahony said. “I’m going to keep working hard.”

Restoring your lawn Bringing it back to life in spring

O

ne of the best things about the dawn of spring and the return of warmer weather is the chance to get out of the house and get some fresh air. For homeowners, this is the perfect opportunity to assess any damage the previous months did to yards and develop a plan restore properties. * Don’t jump the gun. The first warm day of spring might seem like a great time to get out in the yard and get your hands dirty. But it’s best to wait until the grass has completely dried before getting to work. Raking on wet grass increases the risk of tearing out grass, which can cause bald spots and the growth of weeds down the road. In addition, stepping on the grass while the ground is still wet can compact the soil, which can slow drainage and block the lawn’s roots from breathing. Patience should prevail with regard to mowing the lawn as well. A lawn’s roots will not start to grow until the average everyday temperature routinely reaches 4 C, so mowing too early is both unnecessary and potentially

harmful to the lawn. When the temperatures regularly reach 10 C, then homeowners will likely start to see their lawns growing. * Remove debris that’s piled up. Debris has a tendency to infest a yard over the course of the winter months. Fallen branches, stones and even trash can accumulate there, putting those who spend time in the yard at risk of injury once the warm weather returns. For instance, bits of twigs and pebbles that are blown across the yard during a windy winter can be embedded in the yard, making the yard less of a haven and more of a hazard. Once the grass is dry enough to walk on, walk around the property and remove any debris that’s piled up over the last few months. * Employ a pre-emergent weed killer. Homeowners who routinely spend their summers agonizing over weeds throughout the yard should consider applying a pre-emergent weed killer around the beginning of spring. It’s important to do so around the end of March or early April, when the weeds have not yet had a chance to grow. When applying, follow the dosage instructions provided by the product’s manufacturer. Such instructions often recommend a second application right

before summer begins. * Remove thatch. Once the grass has dried, you can begin to remove thatch that’s built up over the winter. Thatch is potentially very harmful to soil, blocking sunlight, air and moisture the soil needs to ensure a lawn looks lush and healthy. Thatch removal does not necessarily need to be an annual task. If thatch buildup is insignificant, then it can be done every other year. Just use a dethatching rake to make the job much easier. * Aerate, particularly if the yard is a heavy traffic area once the warm weather arrives. If your yard transforms into a child’s wonderland upon the arrival of spring and summer, you might want to revive the soil by aerating. When the yard gets heavy usage, it’s easy for soil to become compacted, which makes it hard for air and water to reach the lawn’s roots. That can eventually make for a less-thanappealing lawn. So if your yard is the place to be come the warmer months, aerate in the spring to loosen the soil and make it easier for the lawn to withstand the months ahead. No matter how harsh the winter months might have been, spring is a great time for homeowners to restore the property around their homes.

Weeding out shady contractors S

pring is here and homeowners planning to hire a landscaper should be careful to weed out shady contractors, advises Better Business Bureau. “Homeowners should want a landscaper who has a track record,” says Lynda Pasacreta, BBB president and CEO. “If you are shopping around for a landscaper make sure you are dealing with a company that is transparent about its contract and providing you services that you need.” This past month, BBB received over 1,600 lawn maintenance and landscaper inquiries. Last year, the BBB for Mainland B.C. received 59 complaints related to lawn maintenance and landscaping. Consumers reported having difficulty cancelling service contracts and reported that after yearly contracts end, the contracts are automatically renewed without the homeowner’s consent. This year, consumers have reported harassing phone

If you see an example of the way you want the job to look like on completion, show it to the landscaper, and question its feasibility for your yard. 4. Ensure that the landscaper checks for specific health hazards and care of all the items in question. 5. Always obtain any expressed or implied warranty on the company’s workmanship in writing. 6. Ask for references, and follow up on them. Many companies carry a portfolio of pictures and letters from customers. Try to ensure that

calls from businesses trying to renew lawn maintenance contracts. BBB offers 10 tips on how to hire a landscaper: 1. Decide what landscaping you are looking for. Are you seeking a complete yard remodelling, a maintenance contract, or remedy of a problem? 2. Obtain at least three detailed written estimates of the work you want. Some agreements break down costs, but for most residential work it is common to indicate a lump sum, and then detail what’s included in the cost. Additionally, if you have specific instructions on items not to be done, (for example, your prize rose bush is to be left alone) these instructions

10 tips on how to hire a landscaper

the majority of the work is to be done at the same time, so that the age and condition of the yard are similar. 7. Check out the company’s BBB Business Review at www.mbc.bbb.org and also check to see if they are listed with the BC Landscape & Nursery Association (BCLNA) at www.bclna.com. If the company displays either a BBB or BCLNA logo in its marketing or advertising, verify it with each organization independently. 8. Specifically request any refund or repair information. Ask questions about whether the company automatically renews the contract each year. 9. It is a good idea to be on site when the actual landscaping takes place. Oversee the job, and keep in mind that if you become concerned that the job is not what you had originally contracted for, you have the right to tell them to stop whatever it is that they are doing. 10. If you do receive what you believe are harassing phone calls from contractors trying to solicit their business, contact Consumer Protection BC to file a complaint about the telemarketing practice: www.consumerprotectionbc.ca

A nightmare in the garden Q: Our garden beds were taken over with a plant that grows from a white bulb and has purple bellflowers of a central stem. Last year I dug down a foot, pulled out all the bulbs I could find and filtered the soil I put back. But this spring thousands of new shoots are growing from deep tubers, bulb connectors or tiny mini-bulbs. Should I stick with it and pull up every bulb I see for the next five years? Or should I do as my husband says and just be thankful that there’s something I can’t kill. Tess Trethewey Coquitlam A: You’ve got the Creeping Bellflower (Campanla rapunculoides). It’s just what you described—a gardener’s nightmare. It’s a good-looking plant so you could try learning to love it, but it usually spreads into a dense mat that out-competes everything else. There’s no quick trick or magic potion to remove this. Weed-killers remove only the upper growth—and those fat, deep-down tubers have lots of reserves that put up more stems. It’s crucial to deadhead the flower spikes so that they never get a chance to seed. But the real key to removing it is to dig up the tuberous roots.

years. Before reclaiming the bed, put a three-inch (7cm) mulch on top. This should prevent any old bellflower seeds from germinating. With the other beds, deadheading the clumps, weeding seedlings and continuing to sieve soil to remove mini-tubers should hold the situation static until you can begin a deep-digging battle in another conflict zone. I wish I could help you more, Tess. This is a very difficult plant to eradicate. Q: Many of my big sword ferns didn’t die this winter. Should they still be cut back to let the new fronds grow?” Norma Becker Tsawwassen A: It’s still best to prune old fronds to ground level each year so that new growth has space to flourish. This is because old growth will get shabby and then you’ll likely want to freshen up the plants. But at that point, cutting back will be a problem because new growth will have joined old growth and you’ll need to cut the old growth selectively. This is a long, painstaking process.

ANNE MARRISON

Green Thumb It sounds as if you didn’t dig deep enough for the big roots. You may need to dig down about 18” (45cm). I’d recommend a Lee Valley Tools drain spade because it has a longer blade than ordinary spades. It’s quite heavy but it’s helpful in retrieving many bulbs (such as snowdrops, camas, bluebells) that work their way down to China! Trying to tackle all the garden beds at once is probably impractical. You could select one war zone for digging and move your most precious plants somewhere else that’s hopefully bellflower-free. Wash their roots. Don’t move any soil over. After deep digging, cover that area with black plastic. Then weigh down the plastic with something heavy enough to flatten any up-thrusting shoots and nice-looking enough to be a patio for a container garden. Any remaining mini-tubers should die out in a couple of

Exciting end to hockey season

Cornelia Naylor/TIMES

The minor hockey season wrapped up with a bang Saturday, including a tense shootout finish to the peewee season in which C4 goalie Kurtis Russell (top) helped his team to victory.

T

en teams took part in Hockey Day in Chilliwack Saturday, with league cups handed out in four different leagues. T h e Ca n n o r Cu p w a s handed to Atom C7 after they knocked off their C2 rivals 2-1. Peewee C4 and C1 played a tight game for the Morrow Cup. C4 led on goals from Jess Nadin and Carson James until late in the third period, when C1 tied the game. The squads played five minutes of scoreless overtime before the championship was decided in a shootout. C4 goaltender Kurtis Russell stopped all opposing shooters before Logan Oakley sealed the victory. Bantam C2 beat C3 to claim victory in the Jim Donaldson Cup. And Midget C5 won the Elite Cup with a win over C3. Both Peewee female teams participated in an exhibition game. - Staff

C

oming off two good games in the past two weeks, the Chilliwack Crusaders took on a young and fit Maple Ridge side last Saturday. The Crusaders started strong, with Loz Davies breaking the defensive line and scoring with good crashing play from Pat Gallagher in support. Forward of the match Chris Veenstra ran the ball well and set up another try for Davies, which was converted for a halftime lead of 12-0 in the Crusaders’ favour. The second half started with the Bruins smashing into the Crusaders with some nice plays. But the Crusaders line held strong and the Bruins were unable to get on the score sheet. During the final 15 minutes of the game, Crusader Andrew Zimmer caught a nice ball from Brian Harding and ran the ball in for another converted try, leaving the score at 19-0. Back-and-forth play ensued, with Beck Forman and Jordan Aleck-Kiahu putting in some hard running and good tackling. The back of the match was Nick Hyde, who ran hard and used his footwork well to exploit the Bruins defence in the hard-earned win. After a break for Easter, the Crusaders take on Capilano at home April 14 for the team’s last game of the season.

BOUNDARIES, from page 11 district includes Cultus Lake. The boundary then runs north along Giesbrecht Road across the Vedder River continuing along Lickman Road. The line then runs along South Sumas Road across Vedder and along the top of the Tzeachten Reserve and Bailey Road. Included in the riding is Vedder Crossing, Promontory, Ryder Lake and everything east of Prest Road. The boundary then runs along Yale Road, turns up Reeves Road and follows Jesperson and Carey roads to the Fraser River. Further adding to the confusion is that the Chilliwack campaign offices of two of the three main parties are not in the Chilliwack-Hope riding NDP candidate Gwen O’Mahony’s campaign office is located on Young Road near Hocking Avenue, and Martin’s office is near Cottonwood Mall. “Our campaign office is outside the riding because there was a lack of economical commercial space available for short-term lease in the Chilliwack part of Chilliwack-Hope,” Martin said. “Our existing space is very close to Highway 1 and has great visibility and is more convenient to access.” The O’Mahony campaign didn’t respond to a question about the office location.

Confusion Sumas near Unsworth. “We looked at the office that Gwen O’Mahony is in but decided not to go there because it was so far away from the riding and we thought there might be some confusion about who is actually up for election,” Throness said. Yet another source of confusion among those asked by the Times was the fact that a large number of residents in the Chilliwack riding (for which there is no byelection being held) received the byelection flyer from Elections BC. Elections BC spokesperson Don Main said the reason is because Canada Post letter carrier routes overlap the riding boundaries. “Our number one imperative is that every residence in the electoral district receives a householder and there may be some spillover into adjoining electoral districts,” Main said. To find more about the byelection and what riding you are in, call 1-800-661-8683, visit www.elections.bc.ca or visit the Chilliwack-Hope district electoral office at #215725 Vedder Rd. At the nomination deadline, a fourth candidate joined Throness, O’Mahony and Martin: Libertarian Lewis Clarke Dahlby. The byelection is April 19.

et ready to Rock the $#@! Out of Cancer with Loverboy lead singer Mike Reno on April 14. Reno is in Chilliwack to headline a fundraising concert at Evergreen Hall with all profits going to the Ride to Conquer Cancer. Team Rock the $#@! Out Of Cancer is a team of 22 individuals who want to make a difference. In June, they will ride their bicycles from Surrey to Seattle to raise money for the BC Cancer Foundation. The team is based in Chilliwack, with 10 members from the valley and the remainder spread as far east as Calgary and west as Sydney. They are a music-based team, ranging in talent from weekend garage band musicians to professionals such as Trevor McDonald and Mick DallaVee. The benefit rock show is the team’s major fundraiser towards the end goal of $75,000 for the team as a whole. This is the second annual rock show, and this year our line-up includes: ◗ Mike Reno is lead singer of Loverboy, and he’ll be covering his hits as well as other hits from the era. ◗ Pardon My Striptease is a returning local band, winner of the Battle of the Bands, and well-known for Love for Lilee and the song “Pray.” As a very special treat, Andrew Putt, lead singer of PMS and father of Lilee, who is battling brain cancer, will get on stage with Reno to sing a Loverboy classic.

he Fab Fourever will share the stage with the ChilliwackMetropolitan Orchestra (CMO) for a unique s h ow n e x t we e k a t t h e Chilliwack Cultural Centre. “This is a dream come true,” said Jody Tennant, who performs in the Beatles tribute group as Paul McCartney. “Having the opportunity to play Beatles music accompanied by the CMO is going to be quite a treat for everybody in attendance.” Tennant said the group loves to perform in Chilliwack at the Centre because the audiences know the music and they are “right on the beat.” “This is an exciting endeavour for the CMO,” said Wayne Fleming, orchestra liaison for the concert. “It is music that most of us grew up with, yet many of our orchestra have not performed this music in a concert setting. What a great way to bridge the gap between orchestral pieces and rock and roll.” The show will feature music that the Beatles were unable to reproduce on stage, mainly because of the elaborate orchestral involvement. Featured albums will include Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Magical Mystery Tour, White Album, Let It Be, and Abbey Road albums. When asked if the audience might see any surprises, Kevin Davey, who plays John Lennon, said, in his Liverpudlian accent, “You know we always have surprises when we play Chilliwack, but I can’t tell you or it wouldn’t be a surprise, now would it?” Fans of the Beatles, classic rock, and classical symphonic masterpieces should be interested in the show. “This isn’t just a concert, this is a musical event that outlines the Big Bang Theory of when classical orchestral music met Rock n’ Roll.” said Tenant. “We’ve all heard the results on records, now it’s time to see and hear it live on stage.”

Skonberg the toast of New York

WHAT’S ON, from page 33

Fiddler on the Roof The Chilliwack Players Guild presents Fiddler on the Roof April 18 to 22 and April 25 to 28. All shows start at 7:30 p.m. except for April 22, which is a 2 p.m. matinee.

C

hilliwack’s multi-talented musical artist Bria Skonberg releases her latest album later this month. A trumpeter, vocalist, composer and bandleader, Skonberg will celebrate the release of her new Random Act Records release, So Is The Day (available April 10) at The Iridium in New York City on April 24. “Bria Skonberg brings the great tradition of Louis Armstrong into the 21st Century,” said Scott Elias, Random Act Records founder/ president and So Is The Day’s producer. “Her songwriting is intelligent and touching, her trumpet playing is swinging and sublime, her voice is angelic and heartfelt. Her beauty is rare and shines from the inside out.” This will be Skonberg’s debut album release performance in New York as a leader. She will be accompanied by saxophonist/ clarinetist Will Anderson, trombonist Mike Dease, pianist Jon Weber, bassist Sean Cronin, percussionist Roland Guerrero, drummer Tommy Campbell and special guest cornetist Warren Vaché. Less than two years ago, Skonberg uprooted from Western Canada and arrived in the Big Apple. Lured by the music and those who play it so well, the already-seasoned musician hoped to thrive and to learn in the jazz mecca. The city landscape and abundance of clubs proved to be a stark contrast to the hobby farm Skonberg was raised on in Chilliwack, but the young musician dove in

Chilliwack’s Bria Skonberg will celebrate her new album with a show in New York City later this month.

head-first, ready to make an impact with her unique, modern take on the traditional jazz and hot swing the scene was built on. In the spring of 2011, she found herself performing a highly-successful first solo concert at New York’s renowned Symphony Space for the Sidney Bechet Society. During the performance, Skonberg announced that one of her resolutions for the year was to record a new album of mostly original material. With nine freshly-minted originals and three equally intriguing interpretations of well-known pieces, So Is The Day, her debut for Random Act Records, is that album.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: An investment opportunity might appear Sunday – grab it.The same goes for intimacy, a lifestyle change or commitment – seize change this day, with both hands. Wisdom and a mellow mood flow over you Monday/Tuesday, which helps reduce the irritation early Monday afternoon. Aim for far travel, intellectual matters this eve and Tuesday. Your career, business, ambitions and prestige meet good luck Thursday/Friday, but you might have to turn away from friends. (This will be a theme for a few years: friends or success.) Friends, flirting, hope and popularity, Friday night, Saturday! Taurus April 20-May 20: Continue to lie low, rest, contemplate and plan. You’re weaker than usual (physically, but also in competitive situations) but friends or allies are supportive, and you’ll succeed in government-related tasks. Fulfill old obligations, clear your “work pile” for future action (to come April 19 onward). I have repeatedly told you this was your lucky year (to June) – but you might have experienced it more as a time of upheaval and change. The upheaval itself is lucky – you’ll see, in retrospect. Meanwhile, another surge of luck and change awaits in late April, and May. Plan ahead! Gemini May 21-June 20: Wishes might be fulfilled in health, support, government-related, welfare, sleep and similar zones. (Geminis are insomnia-prone.) This week, wishes can also come true in work Sunday, in relationships, relocation and negotiations Monday/ Tuesday (weaker), in investments, finances and sexual intimacy Thursday/Friday (but take care: look at the long-term “likelihoods”) and in love, travel, intellectual, cultural and legal zones Friday night/ Saturday. Your popularity has been high for several weeks. A love link might begin. Someone’s attracted. Realty, family matters shoot forward soon.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Remain ambitious – chase promotion, higher community status (politics or humanitarian involvements the best route here through 2018). Mingle with big-wigs, etc. Sunday, you’re romantic,creative and prone to take lucky risks. Travelling a short distance, and/or communicating, boost your success. Tackle chores carefully Monday, with ease and confidence Tuesday. Relationships arise Wednesday to Friday morning – act before 2 p.m. Thursday for best results. Keep an eye on the long-term: most new bonds will likely break/fade by October. Mysteries, sensual urges come Friday eve, Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Life’s mellow, easy. Your head and heart are filled with notions of love, far travel, educational or intellectual pursuits, cultural affairs. Last year your marriage planet began a seven-year phase of successful love,one that can easily culminate in wedding your “equal.” Deception (1996-2011) is gone, and your sexual/sensual side now flows into a place of sensitivity and “dreamy awareness.” Now to June,Venus calls you to a light, playful love.This could expand June to mid-2013; it or a new love will fulfill a decade-long romantic wish. Now to late August, don’t play the field. Virgo Aug.23-Sept.22: Mysteries and opportunities still surround you. Your career, under pressure for the last year, receives two boons or gifts: 1) now to early August, bosses, VIPs and parents favour you – even feel affection for you; and 2) June begins 12 months of career luck and expansion. Still, neither of these is entirely safe while a bit of old karma hangs around this zone – to August 30. (That great career expansion might entail leaving/losing one job.) Talk, write or travel Sunday. Home, real estate succeed Monday/Tuesday, but don’t invest Monday. Romance lures Wednesday/Thursday.

Swing dance class Rosedale Traditional Community School Society is offering an introductory swing dance class. Join the folks from Suburban Swing on Wednesday nights for four weeks starting April 18, 7:30 to 8:30 p.m., informal dance to follow.

With a 22-member cast

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The accent remains on vital relationships, Libra. Now to early August, love runs much more smoothly and sweetly – and themes of marriage or internationalism enter. From June onward (to mid-2013) great good luck is added to the brew. But until September, various subtle or unseen traps or dead-ends might exist: so proceed, but carefully. A Gemini might attract you. (Until July 3, if he/she’s a Gemini with a bad temper about recent 2010-11-12 family/home disappointments, give it a pass.) All told, your best love will arise September 2012 onward. Romance calls Friday night, Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Work. Chores are a bit overwhelming, but the pressures will ebb late next week. This Friday, the winter’s subtle delays and holdovers in work end – chores will march to their conclusion much more quickly in weeks/months ahead. You’ll also be able to buy tools and equipment without hesitation (lemons retreat from the field). Meanwhile, protect your health; eat and dress sensibly. Your energy and charisma step upward nicely Sunday. Chase money Monday (carefully before 2:30 p.m.) and Tuesday (smooth). Wednesday/ Thursday promote friendships, travel, news. Be home for the weekend. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Odd delays have occurred in your career or work zones for awhile. These end late this week, enabling you to charge forward, especially with creative career/business projects. However, this “release” also means a higher-up, who might have been containing his/her anger, now can let it loose – be diplomatic! Peer relationships glow with affection now to August – and with major luck June to mid-2013. Still, be cautious, aware until September: pitfalls might exist. (Perhaps a “honey trap.”) Same luck, same caution, applies to pubic dealings, contracts, competitions, marriage.

accompanied by a 13-piece orchestra, this burlesque sendup of a sensationalist media and corrupt justice system brings the longest-running show in Broadway history to Chilliwack. Chicago is at G.W. Graham Theatre, 45955 Thomas Rd. Tickets are available at London Drugs, Save-On Foods (Vedder) and at the school. There will be an April 22 matinee at 1 p.m. (tickets are $10) and 7:30 p.m. shows April 24 to 28 (tickets $15).

Hypnosis show The Comedy Hypnosis Show featuring hypnotist Lee Dyson is coming to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre April 29 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 and available at 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. Harrison Art Show Come to beautiful Harrison Hot Springs for the fun, free sixth annual Harrison Art Show. It takes place May 19 and 20 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Harrison Memorial Hall located at 290 Esplanade Ave. across from the beach. The talents of 25 artists will be showcased.

April 8 - 14, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Now to August, your work scene becomes a much more pleasant one. Coworkers show affection. From June to mid-2013, your work load expands mightily. But now through August, this entire area (work, chores, health, dependents, machinery) also contains subtle tests of your character and morals, with pitfalls if you descend to unworthy motives. So: no temptations, no wishful thinking, no burying yourself in chores to escape other situations. Sunday’s hopeful, happy! Retreat, rest Monday/ Tuesday. Your energy returns Wednesday onward. Decide who/what stays in your life, who/what goes. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Sweet romantic feelings arrive now to August. From June to mid-2013, optimism, camaraderie, major luck and joy will enter romantic situations. A major love affair is brewing! However, until late August, some subtle snares affect this same zone. You can “insulate” yourself from these possible pitfalls by choosing your romantic partner from your social group, or from some gathering – or by refusing to become involved until September onward. Be ambitious Sunday. Your hopes, popularity soar Monday/Tuesday. Retreat, rest Wednesday/Thursday. Your charisma soars Friday eve, Saturday! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Chase money wherever, whenever you can. Indecision and delays end Friday in dealing with a partner or prospect (or ex-spouse) regarding a money situation. Your home, family and property interests are filled with luck and affection now to August. In June, a huge wave of additional luck enters this area, to stay until mid-2013. A beautiful baby could arrive.You might be wise to delay any family or property commitments, though, until September (2012) onward. Sunday’s mellow, loving. Be ambitious (but not competitive) Monday/Tuesday. Joy, hope, friends midweek. Retreat Friday eve. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-727-3673
