solidarity in

“Everywhere we go-ooo. People want to kno-ooow.Who we are. So we tell them.We are the Burn Camp. The mighty mighty Burn Camp.”

S

ixty-five young burn survivors sang that old camp song (with a twist) at top volume Tuesday as they walked through the Cultus Lake Water Park and headed back to their camp buses after a day at the waterslides. At any other time of year, many of these campers, all of whom have burn scars of one kind or another, wouldn’t be comfortable wearing shorts and tank tops in public let alone drawing attention to themselves by singing. But this is Burn Camp week, and there is strength in numbers. “We’re like one big gang,” said local burn survivor 16-year-old Austin Kreller, who is in his fourth

year at the camp. “We stick up for each other. We’ve got each others’ backs.” That kind of solidarity is empowering, and empowerment is what Burn Camp is all about. “It helps kids come out of that shell of not wanting to socialize and helps them socialize,” said Chilliwack firefighter Andy Brown, one of the counsellors at the camp this year. Now in its 18th year, Burn Camp is an annual event designed to help young burn survivors overcome the psychological trauma of their injuries. “Most of them have healed their physical scars; this camp helps heal the emotional scars,” said Brown. For kids adjusting to the lifetime of pain and disfigurement that often comes with their injuries, one week of campfire singalongs, kayaking, horseback riding and team building in a

City may fight to get back severance

Sanborn was paid $104,473

T

he City of Chilliwack may go after the severance package paid to former director of development Grant Sanborn if the payment was an “unnecessary cost to the taxpayer,” according to Mayor Sharon Gaetz. An investigation into allegedly improper land deals at city hall in 2000 led to an unidentified staffer being “separated from their employment,” according to city hall. Sanborn worked at the city until he abruptly left his job in June 2000. When Sanborn left the city, he was paid $104,473 in severance, according to documents accessed through a freedom of information request reported by the Chilliwack Progress. In June of last year, Sanborn was charged with three counts of breach of trust after lengthy investigation by special prosecutor Robin McFee. When asked if the city would pursue the severance money paid to Sanborn if he was found guilty and if there was a connection to his leaving city hall, Gaetz issued this statement: “Due to the fact that this issue involves a former city staff member, we cannot offer comment that is specific to Mr. Sanborn’s case. If there was a circumstance where a former employee was found to have acted in a way that resulted in an unnecessary cost to the taxpayer, the legal alternatives for seeking recovery of those costs would certainly be explored and presented to council for consideration.” Sanborn is scheduled for a pre-trial conference in the breach of trust case on Dec. 5 and the 20-day trial is set to begin on Feb. 27, 2012.

SMA camper Evan Mosco, five, leads a breakaway during a game of wheelchair soccer at Cultus Lake community school Tuesday. BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

A

s campers arrive for the first day of Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) Camp at the Cultus Lake community school, it’s clear who the conductor of this organized chaos is. Susi Vander Wyk winds her way through the 15-or-so kids zipping around in motorized wheelchairs (and their pedestrian families), looking for recruits to unload a carload of hamburger buns, all amid hugs and warm greetings that make this gathering look like a family reunion. And for Vander Wyk, who has organized the camp for 11 years, it may as well be. “These are my family,” she says, nodding at the circled RVs of the families who have come from as far away as Ontario. The camp has been a lifeline forVander Wyk, connecting her to other families who share her family’s struggle with a devastating genetic disease. When her daughter, Holli was first diagnosed with SMA at age two, 12 years ago, Vander Wyk was terrified. SMA is rare degenerative disease that affects the nerves’ ability to send messages from the brain to the muscles. As the disease progresses, unused muscles weaken, including those used for breathing. For a time, Vander Wyk was paralyzed with fear about her young daughter’s uncertain future. “When Holli was first diagnosed, I kind of hid in a shell for a year and a half, wouldn’t even go to family outings,” she said. What brought her out of that shell was

helping others. At first she organized a local support group for families with kids with any disability, but 11 years ago she started the camp. “I needed to get together with people that had kids with this disease,” she said. “Being a parent of a child like that, nobody understands like somebody else that’s in your shoes.” After more than a decade, the mother of three has learned to recognize the fear in the eyes of parents whose children have just been diagnosed and who are new to the camp. Because of the progressive nature of SMA, they know coming to camp will mean facing the spectre of their own children’s future when they meet older kids with the disease. Vander Wyk can’t hold back the tears as she describes the transformation these parents go through by the end of the six days. “They leave with a sense of family and belonging and understanding, connec-

tion and bond they can’t get anywhere else,” she said. But the camp isn’t just a support group for parents; it’s fun. The six-day camp is filled with inclusive games like a wheelchair obstacle course (for everyone including parents and siblings), relay races, crafts and a marshmallow fight. “It’s a pain-free way of venting your frustrations with your kids,” said Vander Wyk with a laugh. For two of the six days, the camp also teams up with CRIS Adaptive Adventures, a Kelowna-based organization that facilitates adaptive hiking, cycling, kayaking and rock climbing for people with disabilities. For the campers with SMA, the adapted outdoor adventures are a highlight, as is getting together with other kids who face the same challenges they do. Holli, who will start high school at Sardis secondary in September, has been coming to the camp since she was three, and every year she looks forward to seeing one of her oldest friends, a girl just about her age who also has SMA—their parents met in the hospital. “You don’t feel like you’re the only one,” said Holli of the camp. For Vander Wyk, creating a sense of normalcy for kids facing SMA and their families is what the camp is all about. “This is making them experience life like it should be,” she said. “It’s giving memories and abilities and hope.” ◗ For more information about SMA or ways the support SMA Camp, visit www. curesma.ca or call 604-824-1277 or toll free 1-855-824-1277.

wo reports of a cougar seen on the Vedder Rotary Trail this week may have been sightings of the elusive mountain cat, but were more likely something else, according to B.C. Conservation Officer Paul McFadden. “I’ve been called by people, even RCMP members, that say they have a cougar up a tree and, it turns out to be a house cat,” McFadden told the Times Wednesday. But Sheryl Adams who lives near the Rotary Trail said she saw a cougar on the trail at about 5 p.m. on Monday EB IRST near Peach First reported on Road. chilliwacktimes.com “It j u s t went really quickly,” Adams said. “Another lady walking on the trail said she saw it as well and it had just pounced right off the trail into the bush and she was all like freaked out.” On Friday, a site manager from Canada Lands called the City of Chilliwack and reported a sighting of a cougar in the same location. The city temporarily put up a sign that said a cougar had been sighted in the area, but it had been taken down by Tuesday. Gord Pederson from the city told the Times they put the sign up based on the report, but he couldn’t think of the last time there was a cougar sighting in Chilliwack.

TrailTalker walks you through history Cutting edge technology enchances Rotary stroll

n case the beauty of the surroundings isn’t enough, visitors and regular users of the Vedder Rotary Trail can now hear about the history and features of the river and the city on their smartphones. As part of recent enhancement projects that included resurfacing of nine kilometres of the well-used trail and new kilometre marker bollards, the City of Chilliwack has introduced TrailTalker, an online educational

service that can be downloaded to mp3 players and phones or simply streamed on a smartphone. “It’s really exciting to be on the cutting edge of technology and to incorporate it into something that is so natural,” Mayor Sharon Gaetz said at council’s meeting Tuesday. Council was given a presentation about the TrailTalker program by manager of parks Dave Snider at the meeting.

The recorded vignettes—voiced by Star FM radio personality Scott Riley—include information about the Vedder Bridge, the Vedder Canal, the Great Blue Heron Reserve and salmon fishing as well as interesting facts about history, landmarks and wildlife in the area. There is also a section on the website, TrailTalker. com, where a general history of Chilliwack can be accessed. The vignettes will be updated

biannually to keep them fresh, Snider said. “These will be changed twice a year so they don’t get stale and users have a reason to check back,” he told council. Snider told council about an $11,500 donation from the Rotary Club of Chilliwack, which helped towards the $114,000 tab for the resurfacing and expansion of the trail. The company that completed

the work, Heppner Trucking, also donated $3,000 back to the project, unsolicited, according to Snider. New signage has also been placed on new kilometre bollards to replace the old ones that “had a habit of going for a swim.” The Rotary Trail is one of the most popular and well-used recreational sites in the city and sees more than 10,000 users per month in the summer. Snider said if the TrailTalker program is successful the city might consider adding other sites, such as the Great Blue Heron Reserve.

A New Approach to Mental + Physical Well-Being

How it all started... Truehope’s story began with Anthony Stephan’s desperate attempt to save his bipolar disorder children, Autumn and Joseph. They, like their mom, Debora, and grandfather, Gordon before them ( both were victims of suicide), were being swallowed up in the tightening grip of bipolar disorder. Stephan had exhausted all avenues in his efforts to save his children. When a specialist told him to give up he resolved that if a lifesaving answer existed, he would find it and try to save his family.

His answer came when he met David Hardy, an animal feed formulator. Hardy said that the bipolar behavior of Joseph sounded like ear-and-tail-biting syndrome in pigs, which is successfully treated through nutritional supplementation. Together they designed a nutritional formula ideal for people - that would support mental and physical well being. After taking TrueHope EMP, both Autumn and Joseph became well, and have remained so to this day. Truehope EMP is a broad spectrum micronutrient that provides you with the essential cofactors your body needs to maintain Mental and Physical well being. Truehope EMP contains 15 minerals, 14 vitamins, 3 amino acids and 3 antioxidants, these nutrients have also been shown to be very effective for mood changes, depression and ADHD.

Health Canada Authorization While Health Canada has restricted the use of the terms treatment, cure or therapy for specific disorders such as bipolar disorder, they have recognized and acknowledged the safety and health benefits of Truehope EMP. Health Canada has awarded a Natural Product Number (80000383) TrueHope EMP and has authorized the claim “Nutritional Support for Mental & Physical Well-Being”.

Natural Mosquito and Bug Repellent

An in-depth field study was carried out to evaluate the mosquito repellent action of neem oil in the tribal forested villages of District Mandla (deep in the heart of horrific mosquito territory in India). Various concentrations of neem oil mixed in coconut oil (1-4%) were applied to the exposed body parts of human volunteers. Results revealed 8191% protection during 12 hour period of observation from the bites of mosquitoes. The conclusion? Neem oil is a natural, effective and practical solution to curtail mosquito bites. Plus... does not contain DEET and other common toxic chemicals commonly used as repellents.

Band may open farm FISH, from page 1 the Skwah band are raising the alarm over open-net fish farms, the band is looking into the possibility of starting up a landbased salmon farm on its land. When asked if it was a business move to protest open-net fish farms while considering starting a close-containment farm, Gardner said it was about seizing opportunity in the face of environmental damage. “When you are facing damage like the threat that the open-net cages on the oceans create—not only for salmon but other biodiversity—you look at opportunites,” Gardner said. “We are looking at some . . . alternative to the fish farms and this could be one. If we do it, we can create jobs on our reserve for the band.” At the rally Tuesday, Gardner was with Chief Robert Combes, other band council members and band members along with Anissa Reed, co-founder of Salmon Are Sacred, a Vancouver Island group that fights against open-net salmon farms. Gardner said members of the Skwah band will also be at the Vancouver Art Gallery on Aug. 30 as part of a First Nations rally against open-net salmon fish farms.

on Highway 1 just past the curve before Annis Road when the accident occurred. The truck ended up on its side but both occupants got out relatively unscathed. RCMP Fraser Valley Traffic Services are investigating the cause of the crash. According to police, a semi was involved in the accident but few details were available

before the Times went to press. There were unconfirmed reports at the scene that the woman passenger was temporarily trapped in the cab of the vehicle, and that she was extracted by rescue personnel. The couple’s two dogs—Rex and Scooter—who were in the back seat made it out unscathed. Diane Thiessen is a nurse who arrived on the scene just after the

accident occurred and decided she should stop to help. She said when she stopped, the man was out of the overturned vehicle but the woman was trapped until emergency workers got her out. “She appeared to be fine, she was just scared,” Thiessen said. Visit www.chilliwacktimes.com for updates.

Jerk handicap not incurable We all have handicaps. Not a one of us is perfect. Some handicaps are more obvious than others, and some handicaps make life more difficult than others. For most of us, our handicaps are relatively minor. Some folks aren’t as educated as they’d like to be and don’t have the time to upgrade. Or they don’t have the job they’d like—or they have the boss nobody likes. That sort of thing. Such handicaps can be discouraging for some people (or propel others to make positive changes in their lives), but they’re not exactly the sort of stuff that can get you a blue tag and special parking privileges. Even less convincing of a need for special treatment is a handicap that seems to be emerging in endemic proportions—an entirely avoidable mental handicap . . . or actually, an ego handicap. And I mean too much ego. Egos are getting in the way of normal and reasonable functioning for a lot of people. And the trouble with this handicap is that it affects other people more than it affects the afflicted. We’re all getting better than everybody else. At least, it has become the vogue to believe that we are better than everybody else—that we deserve everything that we can get, at the

BOB GROENEVELD

Be Our Guest expense of anyone else. OK, if we were all playing on a level field, I’d accept that with equal opportunity comes equal responsibility to take care of ourselves, to stand up for ourselves. But what about those among us who can’t stand up for themselves? What about those who can’t stand up? You see it darned near every day. A car careens into a space set aside for handicap parking. Out of the car jumps a robust young man or woman—or not so young, but obviously able-bodied—and saunters over to the nearest store, bank, what-have-you. There is no blue “handicapped” tag hanging from the mirror. Sometimes it’s difficult to be sure from just a quick glance—sometimes people with genuine physical handicaps, like post-polio sufferers, for instance, aren’t easy to spot. But this person who has bolted from his vehicle and blasted his way to the nearby shop door is so obviously full of health and vigour that you’d laugh out loud if there were such a tag in his window.

You could say something. You even know that you should really say something. The lout should be brought to task for his transgression. But past experience tells you that there’s little point. Your intervention, however well intentioned, is likely to reap little more than scorn, foul language, and ignorant disregard. Indeed, memory of a fairly recent, incredible newscast brings to mind the possibility that even the most polite reminder could get you a punch in the nose. While we are all, indeed, handicapped to a greater or lesser degree, we need, as individuals, to start focusing on the handicaps that are unavoidable. Blind people can’t avoid being blind. Paraplegic people can’t simply rewire themselves with new nerves, and amputees can’t grow new limbs. But jerks don’t have to be jerks. They can exercise compassion if they want to. If they try, they can see some of the problems that blind people stumble over. They don’t need bulky wheelchairs to walk a mile in another’s shoes. Maybe a $100 fine in the Township of Langley could help in their rehabilitation. ◗ Bob Groeneveld is editor of the LangleyAdvance.

heck your toll bills carefully. The news from the top of the world just keeps getting better and better. Now it’s been divulged that there’s a basic problem with the equipment used to automatically scan vehicles as they cross the Golden Ears Bridge. About one per cent of travellers crossing the bridge are being misclasssified, and consequently, incorrectly billed for their passage. While there is some quality control to ensure not all of the 8,500 incorrectly classified vehicles end up over-charged, the good folks over at TransLink feel they have whittled the problem down to 200 per month, based largely on complaints. Of course, now that more people realize that the pernicious problem exists, more people are likely to scrutinize their bills more carefully. When TransLink’s numbers indicated that there weren’t as many vehicles crossing the Golden Ears Bridge as expected —or needed—the folks over at the Lower Mainland’s transit authority took decisive action by instituting a modest reduction in tolls . . . in off-hours, especially when practically nobody has need of the bridge anyway. And when that (naturally) didn’t work, the wizards at TransLink put their best business sense to work . . . and raised toll charges instead. We suspect that that hasn’t increased the number of vehicles burning up the pavement over the bridge, either. Add that to the trouble they’re having charging the right tolls against those brave enough to venture across the span, and we’re thinking that ridership over the Golden Ears Bridge isn’t going to reach peak levels real soon. But the good news is that they’re hoping to have the problems fixed before they start gouging all of us South-of-the-Fraser folks at the new Port Mann Bridge when it opens in a year and a half.

Just another RCMP disaster Editor: It is sad to see another person has died for no reason, at the hands of the RCMP and we will probably have another whitewash on our hands.

When is enough going to be enough? Time to disband these folks and let them all take up a new line of work. Bring back the provincial police, and don’t let any RCMP apply for jobs. The expolits of the RCMP in the last few years reads like an endless nightmare. Why was a Chilliwack RCMP over in Agassiz any way, they have their our little group of RCMP. I get the feeling you won’t print this but you must know that the RCMP do not enjoy the admiration that they once had many years ago. Many people do not want to call these people if in trouble.

Adding taxes hurting us all Editor: This is a top priority especially with BC Hydro and Fortis Energy and the oil companies all raising prices. The government is responsible for the cause of inflation by the new added carbon, eco and transit fuel taxes and environmental regulations that have driven the cost of owning and operating equipment sky high. So, government you better stop pandering to the global warming scaremongers and make sure the pensioners and people on welfare are looked after properly before spending our Canadian tax dollars on foreign aid and warfare and bringing more immigrants to Canada when a lot of us are unemployed.

I want to convey my gratitude to the City of Chilliwack for the Mt. Thom trail. To have such a well maintained and well laid out hike right at our doorstep is worth recognizing.

Slow growing season doesn’t deter Slow Food tourists

BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

M

etro Vancouver foodies on bicycles are once again set to descend on rural Agassiz and Chilliwack for two annual Slow Food Cycle Tours, but this year they’ll be a month early. The tours, which are designed to connect city folks with local food producers, are scheduled to take off this weekend. Last year they didn’t set out until the third week in August. The early start combined with a growing season that is about three

weeks late will mean this year’s cyclists won’t exactly experience the fullness of the valley’s horticultural bounty (the corn is only knee high and the blueberries aren’t quite blue) but organizers say that shouldn’t affect the overall experience. “The whole purpose of the event is still what it was meant to be,” said Joldie Hayes, marketing, sales and events specialist for Tourism Chilliwack. At some venues, she said, participants will actually get a chance to sample crops that wouldn’t have been available in August. “One of the stops did not expect

hilliwack’s MLAs are off to Portland for the Pacific Northwest Economic Region Annual Summit this weekend. Chilliwack MLA John Les, parliamentary secretary to the premier, announced on Tuesday he will lead a British Columbia delegation to the summit July 19 to 22. Chilliwack-Hope ML A and Attorney General Barry Penner will also attend along with MLAs Bill Bennett, Richard Lee and John Yap. Founded in 1991, the Pacific Northwest Economic Region (PNWER) is the only statutory, non-partisan, bi-national, public-private partnership in North America. “Our government is committed to the very principles PNWER holds dear—putting families first by increasing the economic well-being and quality of life for all citizens in the region,” Les said in a government press release

issued Tuesday. “Partnerships such as PNWER help policymakers strengthen competitiveness, secure our shared border, and promote regional trade right across the Pacific Northwest.” PNWER is the forum for collaborative bi-national planning involving both the public and private sectors and offers leadership at the state and provincial level. “As a past president of PNWER, I know that there is much to be gained by learning from other jurisdictions and co-ordinating our efforts on a variety of issues and policies,” Penner said.“At this meeting, I will be speaking about opportunities to expand the use of natural gas as a transportation fuel, something that can benefit not just British Columbia but all of our partners in the Pacific Northwest.” PNWER will hold its annual Economic Leadership Forum in Victoria Nov. 16 to 19.

to have rhubarb still available,” she said. Cyclists certainly seem undeterred. Even though the registration fee doubled this year (now $20 for one and $30 for both) the tours are on track to meet or beat last year’s numbers, according to Joldie. “It is a certain type of person that is attracted to these tours,” she said. “They see the importance of learning where their food comes from.” Organizers changed the dates to keep the tours back-to-back in the same weekend to encourage overnight stays at local hotels and B&Bs.

We have been there.

This was the only weekend both communities could conveniently accommodate parking for hundreds of cyclists. Last year the 25-kilometre, selfguided tours drew 600 participants to Chilliwack and 750 to Agassiz. Although the cycle tours are geared towards MetroVancouverites, local residents can also learn a thing or two from the tours’ buy local-eat local message since, despite living in one of the most fertile agricultural regions in Canada, much of the food locals buy still comes from California, Mexico or even farther away.

Why won’t God do what I want?

BY SCOTT STREET Chilliwack House Churches

T

here have been some issues in life I have had a hard time working through. You see, it seems that I keep asking God to do a couple of things, and He isn’t acting like the well-trained puppy I too often expect Him to be. As much as I don’t like to admit it, there are times I view God as being there for my personal needs. One problem is that my son is sick with a disease he will have with him for his whole life—barring some miraculous healing from God. I struggle with that

because I read many stories in the Bible about people being healed. There are times I wonder why God hasn’t healed my son, yet. Seriously. Why not? A trap that I’m scared of falling into (more often than I do now) is expecting God to conform to my image of what He should do. Why do I expect Him to heal my son and at times build up resentment in my heart towards God over his lack of movement in this area, but completely overlook the incredible life I have otherwise? Why do I expect God to act quickly and decisively when it comes to my comfort (besides the fact that I live

in North America where we statistically have the lowest worldwide tolerance for change)? It seems that somehow I expect God to save me from having to ask the hard questions or take the path that is not as easy. Why is that? Is it reasonable to expect that God will give me some sort of preferential treatment because I try and live a life that is in line with His values? Really, have I done anything that should afford me any special attention so that He will listen to me more than others? And if so, what is the cut off line to where you get that preferential treatment or so you know that you

Huskers head into the fire

BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

Live-game situation this weekend in Kamloops

he Chilliwack Huskers head to Prince George this weekend for their first and only chance to work out the kinks before the season begins in earnest at the end of the month. The Huskers take on the Kamloops Broncos Saturday in an exhibition game aimed at boosting Prince George’s bid to launch a B.C. Football Conference franchise by 2013. For Huskers head coach, Luke Acheson the contest will provide an important first look at his team in a live-game situation. “It’s going to be a real test for our new guys to see how quickly they can adjust and how they’ve adjusted thus far,” he said.

One of those “new guys” is offensive son’s quick release and ability to co-ordinator Jon Klyne, who came on think on his feet, said Acheson. “He’s slippery. Like a wet bar of board this year, and Acheson is eager soap, he’s hard to to see how his new get a grip on,” he offence does on the said. field.

In terms of recruits, the biggest shot in the arm for the Huskers offence this year, according to Acheson, is O-lineman Brendon Moore who returns at left tackle after a year’s absence. Chilliwack minor football products Cody Parray and Dylan Boykowich also had a standout camp, according to their new coach, and are in the running for starting spots at wide receiver and slotback respectively. While Acheson will have his eye on Klyne’s new offence this Saturday, he said defence looks to be the Huskers’ strength so far this year. “It takes a little bit longer for See HUSKERS, Page 20

Chilliwack secondary graduate Jenna McLatchy didn’t surrender a single point during her run to the gold medal at the 2011 Junior Pan American Championships held in Brazil.

Golden grappler Jenna McLatchy brings gold medal home from Brazil BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

hilliwack’s Jenna McLatchy didn’t surrender a single point en route to a gold medal at the 2011 Junior Pan American Championships earlier this month in Sao Paulo, Brazil. McLatchy, 19, beat Brazilian Daniele Brandao in her first match. In the best-ofthree-rounds format, McLatchy won in two rounds, 1-0, 5-0, to advance to her final match with a chance to secure gold in her 67 kilogram weight class. McLatchy, who went to Brazil aiming for a medal, said she felt confident and composed heading into the final. “When I warmed up I just felt really confident,” she told the Times. And win she dd. With her family looking on from the stands, McLatchy bested American Demi Strub 5-0, 6-0 to claim gold. Large hugs followed, especially from her father Mike, whom McLatchy calls “my biggest fan.”

“It was very special,” she said. McLatchy, who graduated in 2009 from Chilliwack secondary school, has spent the last two years wrestling for Simon Fraser University on a scholarship. In that time she’s dropped several weight classes and seen first hand what it takes to compete at a high level. Earlier this year she faced off against, but lost to, nine-time world championship medalist Kristie Davis. Her training partner from last summer won the recent junior world championships. McLatchy is being pushed by both her peers and the university system. SFU frequently sends just one wrestler in each weight class to major events. That makes it a non-stop battle to earn the right to compete. “You’re fighting other girls for your spot,” she said. “I want to make those teams so I can go and travel.” It won’t get any easier as SFU plans to move up to the NCAA, the largest governing body in American sports. While women have competed in wrestling at the Olympics since 2004, wrestlers peak in their mid- to late-20s and so that event is still beyond the horizon. For now, McLatchy’s is focused on her imminent move from junior to senior competitions and hopes to make the senior world team.

Great Sex FOR MEN GUARANTEED

Ken Goudswaard/TIMES

Huskers coach Luke Acheson feels defence will be one of the keys to the team’s success this season.

D will set the tone for team HUSKERS, from page 15 everyone to get on the same page on offence,” he said. At D, Acheson will look to team captain and BCFC allstar linebacker Mike Decloedt (30 tackles and three sacks last season) to set the tone. Other key veterans on defence are last year’s team defensive MVP Jason Bates at free safety and local boy Levi Weaver at halfback or corner. Important additions at D are Washington recruit (with dual Canadian-US citizenship) linebacker Brad Bombery and former Chilliwack Giant Cole Herrman, named the Valley Community Football League’s D-lineman of the year last season. Rounding out the top defensive recruits is former W.J. Mouat Hawk Tanner Hamade at corner. While naming key players may be unavoidable, however, Acheson is more concerned with how his team comes together as a unit this Saturday against the Broncos. “If we can gel and start playing for each other and start playing some good football, we can be very good,” he said. ◗ The Huskers play their first game of the BCFC season against the Westshore Rebels at Exhibition Park July 31. Kickoff is at 2 p.m. For more information visit www.chilliwackhuskers.org.

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

Sports

n working with golfers of all skill levels, I always emphasize the importance of using equipment that matches each player’s individual golf swing and body type. When you are ready to invest in a set of golf clubs, you should resist the urge to buy a set off the rack without first being fit for them. This is crucial for any golfer, even if you are just taking up the sport. An approach I often hear with students is “I am just a beginning golfer, so am not good enough for an expensive set of custom clubs.” There are a number of reasons why this comment drives me crazy. First of all, you are more likely to make compensations to your swing and develop poor swing fundamentals if you are learning how to play golf with equipment that doesn’t suit you. This often leads to an unenjoyable experience and turns many new players away from the game. Even if you are just beginning to golf, you can save yourself a lot of frustration by playing the right equipment. For more experienced players, I am amazed at how many people spend a lot of money on clubs that are totally wrong for them. The most common equipment error I see is using the wrong type of shaft. The shaft of the club is arguably the most important part of your equipment. The shaft affects both the flexibility of the club, as well the overall weight of the club. These elements then contribute to the trajectory, direction and distance of the

JENNIFER GREGGAIN

Pro Tips golf ball. Many players overlook this crucial aspect of their equipment, and often suffer the consequences of poor

results on the golf course. With this said, it is definitely worth your time, and a little investment, to be sure your equipment is right for you. There are a number of affordable options on the market that will meet the needs of any budget. You can purchase a great set of “fitted” clubs that does not cost any more than an “off the rack” set. Your local certified golf professional, clubmaker or retailer can set up a custom fitting session for you. During your fitting, you will have a number of measurements taken. Your fitter will also use a few devices to analyze the many variables of your golf clubs. You may be asked to hit different clubs from a “lie board,” as well as use computer-based technology called a “launch monitor” to determine which club variables best suit your swing and body type. By investing in custom fit equipment, you are definitely more likely to shave a few more precious strokes off your golf scores. ◗ Bridal Falls Golf Club is hosting a free equipment analysis and club demo day on Sunday, July 31 from 1-5 p.m. with certified custom clubmaker Ross Beebe from Chimo Golf.

OUR ELECTRICITY GRID IS ABOUT TO GET

A WHOLE LOT SMARTER

STARTING THIS SUMMER, BC HYDRO WILL BE UPGRADING HOMES AND BUSINESSES WITH NEW SMART METERS. MOVING TO A MORE EFFICIENT, MODERNIZED GRID WILL CREATE IMMEDIATE SAVINGS FOR OUR CUSTOMERS. YOU MAY BE WONDERING... What is a smart meter? The smart metering program will modernize our electricity system by replacing old electro-mechanical meters with new digital meters. A smart meter is a a digital meter that records the amount of power you use. It helps improve the efficiency of the power grid, means less wasted electricity and gets BC ready for future power needs. What are the benefits for me as a customer? You will be able to see your power use in near real time and it will be faster and easier to open and close your account if you move. What happens if the power goes out? With smart meters in place, BC Hydro can pinpoint power outages and restore power faster. How does it make my community safer? The new meters reduce public and worker exposure to theft-related safety hazards, such as house fires, live wires and premature transformer failures. How will my meter be read? There will be remote, two way communication between your meter and BC Hydro. Smart meter signals are short, infrequent and will last less than one minute per day. Is the signal safe? The signals are low level frequency and exceed Health Canada safety standards. Is my information secure? Similar to online banking systems, the data from the meters is secure and your privacy is protected.

Summer safety for dogs

Y

es, summer is finally here. The Chilliwack 4-H members from the seven local clubs (Chilliwack Dog, Chilliwack Lamb, Chilliwack Horse, Chilliwack Rabbit, Chilliwack Holstein, Agassiz Rainbow, and Rosedale’s Rushing Rivers) were able to cool off at the annual Bridal Falls WaterPark party June 26 and sponsored by 4-H senior council. The members of the Chilliwack 4-H Dog Club have also been keeping up with their training, and joined in on an extra training night June 29 filled with incredible and successful tips led by a co-worker of one of the leaders. Examples: Walk the dog with a loose leash and a fine choke chain. Give them a pop (loose leash, yank, loose leash) when they curve away or shy off. Encourage them along and only whisper your happy commands and praise (they can hear your heart beat 15 feet away). Soon the members were able to walk with loose leashes draped around their necks The training has brought every dog a long way. This is wonderful, since they performed their agility skills for the public on Canada Day at Heritage Park. That sure was a long day, but it was fun. The club will be attending the Maple Ridge fair July 23-24, and our Chilliwack Fair Aug. 5 to 7, finishing off with the Agassiz Fall Fair Sept. 17. The Chilliwack 4-H Dog Club hosts the 4-H dog show at the Chilliwack Fair and it’s a lot of fun to decorate the stalls up to the theme and show off in the ring. Yes, these are the fun-filled fairs of the summer months. SOLIDARITY, from page 1 safe, accepting environment is an important reprieve. “You just trust everybody in this camp because they’ve been through the same thing you have,” said Kreller, who was severely burned more than four years ago when a gas can exploded next to his left leg while he was checking a lawnmower for a spark. Kreller and his fellow campers from all over B.C. attend the camp every year for free. The $2,900 (including travel) it costs for each camper is paid for entirely through the fundraising efforts of professional firefighters around the province and the B.C. Professional

Summer dog tips Speaking of summer, there are a few things you need to know. First off, it is illegal—and very dangerous for your dog—to have them ride loose in the back or your trucks or to leave them in a hot car. Recent tragic stories in the news have unfortunately reminded us all of the horrible consequences. Secondly, you should know about dog heat stroke. Heat stroke strikes when the dog’s temperature rises above the dog’s normal temperature (101.5 F). When it hits over 108 F, cell damage starts and can harm kidneys, liver, heart, brain, etc. Untreated pooches with heat stroke could die, and even if they live they may have life-long damage. Dogs don’t sweat like us; they regulate through panting. Things that contribute to heat stroke include heat, humidity, muscular activity like running, anxiety, poor ventilation (maybe the dog’s in a crate), a lack of cold drinking water, obesity, short-nosed breeds, and simply old dogs. They may have muddypink colored gums instead of normal red-pink; their heart rate will be dramatically elevated; they might pant furiously; most might also have a wild or panicked expression and aren’t really aware of their surroundings. Wet the dog with cool, not too cold water. Use a hose or immerse in a tub of water. Particularly wet the groin area as there are lots of blood vessels there. Cover the dog with a wet towel but don’t put him back in his crate. This would create a steam bath So everyone take care of your dogs, and have a fun summer. I wish all the clubs luck as they head off to compete in our local fairs.

Camp costs paid Fighters’ Burn Fund. Doctors, nurses, medical therapists, adult burn survivors and professional firefighters also donate their time as counsellors at the camp. On Tuesday, 130 campers and camp volunteers descended on Cultus Lake community school for a camp barbecue, and the Chilliwack Fire Fighters Charitable Society made a $6,500 donation to the Burn Fund to make sure young burn survivors get the chance to come back again next year. ◗ For more information on Burn Camp visit www.burnfund.org.

Car Surfing, and Other Bad Ideas Of the four main factors influencing road safety: roadway and traffic engineering, automotive engineering, driver performance, and driver behaviour, changes in driver behaviour are considered the most important. Understanding how human behaviour can be changed is therefore key to reducing the risk Cedric Hughes of harm on our roads. Dr. Leonard Evans, the author of Traffic Safety (Science Serving Society, 2004) and our favourite traffic safety expert proposes four types of influence on driver behaviour: • fear of adverse consequences. • social norms. • mass media. • legislative interventions. Recently, we have seen at close hand examples of the latter two—for good and bad—at work. Take the positive influence of recent legislative intervention. In British Columbia in September 2010, the laws regulating drinking and driving changed in two ways: the first reinforced a blood alcohol content of .05 as a threshold for legal consequences; the second made these consequences immediate—impaired drivers are separated at the roadside from their cars and their licenses—and effective enough to deter repetition by making the recovery costs both time-wise and moneywise significant. The government’s goal was to reduce drunkdriving fatalities by a third in three years. The first sign of effectiveness was an almost immediate business decline for bar and restaurant owners. The second was the statistics: between October 2010 and April 2011, with more than 10,000

vehicle impoundments throughout BC, there were 30 impaired driving fatalities, compared to the prior five-year average for the same period of 61 fatalities. Likewise in the first six months of 2011, in the lower mainland, there were seven impaired driving fatalities compared to the prior five-year average for the same period of 21 fatalities. Barrister & Solicitor RCMP Superintendent Norm Gaumont, head of Lower Mainland District Traffic Services said, “I can’t think of any other legislation where we saw such an immediate change in driving behaviour.” Mass media influence can be harder to pinpoint. The recent death of a young BC man - age 21 - from the head injuries he suffered after falling off a moving car on which he was balancing in a surfing-like stance was the second recent car-surfing tragedy in BC. Car surfing is a stunt reportedly first performed in the 1985 movie Teen Wolf and then in the Jackass movie series, in Grand Theft Auto video games, and in YouTube clips. Neurosurgeons at Case Western University School of Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio reportedly found that spikes in carsurfing injuries during the past decade neatly overlapped with the release of the above-mentioned depictions. In trying to understand why teens undertake such risky behaviors, they concluded that, as one reporter summarized it, “while some stupidity among teenagers is to be expected, really, really stupid ideas come from the popular media.” Albert Einstein is said to have noted that “one difference between genius and stupidity is that stupidity has no limits”.

I’m a chef, not a doctor

I

n my last column, I supplied you, the readers, with a selection of nocook recipes for kids of all ages to make with the intention of contributing to family meal preparation. Getting kids involved with food prep not only helps to create a special bonding time, but also to generate a sense of pride and anticipation of mealtime. In response to this column, an email with, what I found to be, disturbing content was sent to the editor of one of the publications I write for. The main body of the email was as follows: “I was so excited to flip the page this morning to read Chef Dez’s article on getting the kids involved in health and cooking. However, I’m at a loss for words after seeing the sweet & sour recipe calling for golden corn syrup, among sugar and mayo in the other recipes. In 2011 and with all the knowledge about the health dangers of crap ingredients like corn syrup, I cannot believe Chef Dez is contributing to the childhood obesity epidemic.” The person that sent this email also said, “I don’t want this message printed in the paper; it’s unnecessary” so I will leave them anonymous, but I do feel this needs to be addressed and responded to.

CHEF DEZ

On Cooking First of all, this column the individual is referring to was in no shape or form created to focus on “health.” Nowhere does it state this. Also, for the record, my title is chef; not dietician, nutritionist or even doctor. This does not mean I am incapable of creating healthy recipes, but I chose to have a different focus for this particular column as mentioned. To go to the lengths of suggesting that I am contributing to the childhood obesity epidemic is ludicrous. If parents can’t step up to the plate themselves and practice moderation without me holding their hands, they’ve got a bigger problem than the recipes I voluntarily provide to them in my column. I am merely making suggestions to give people alternatives to the storebought, preservative-laden, bottled junk they may be buying in the first place. I find it sad when people don’t take responsibility for their own actions. I am the father of four

beautiful and healthy children (none of whom have weight problems) and eating a balanced diet is of utmost importance with our day-today meals. We also treat food as a celebration, however, and make sure that we interject with dishes that are considered splurges that are by no means meant to be eaten on a regular basis. On a positive note, I do commend this writer on the ability to recognize these ingredients as items of concern to them. This alone proves that they are educated in food and shows that they probably provide balanced diets for their children. If items in a recipe you use are a concern, try swapping them out for a healthy alternative. For example, use honey rather than corn syrup or olive oil-based mayonnaise instead of regular. Recipes are not written in stone; they are opportunities for you to practice creativity. If you have ever had the opportunity to get to know me through my cooking classes or show performances, you will also know that I have a big heart and good intentions. It is because of you that I have had so much success in what I do, and I am so grateful. Let’s just keep everything in perspective.

Sardis secondary teacher and part-time investor Brad Geary’s book After the Haircut takes readers on a fictional tour of his investment technique.

Author hooked on making money S

ardis secondary English teacher and part-time investor Brad Geary recalls the day he sat down to write his first book two years ago. “I was trying to think of an interesting way to start an investment book with a Chilliwack angle,” he said. “I can remember writing about driving through Chilliwack, and the book just kind of unfolded from there.” The result, two years later, was After the Haircut, an investment book populated with fictional characters and set mostly in

Sardis secondary teacher Brad Geary shares with us a better way to invest Cultus Lake. If the idea sounds a little familiar (think The Wealthy Barber, a 1988 best-seller about financial planning that also unfolds like a fictional story) it’s no accident. That book was the first on the topic of financial planning Geary ever picked up, and his own book even includes a nod to the earlier work with a barbershop scene. But his barber doesn’t dispense money advice.

One of the goals of After the Haircut is to reveal the shortcomings of the buyand-hold investment strategy endorsed in The Wealthy Barber, so Geary’s barber sends his story’s stock-market Everyman (Gerry) to the docks at Cultus Lake to seek out Lawrence, a wealthy fisherman who imparts to him his hard-won investment wisdom through the rest of the book. Like his fictional character Gerry, Geary became disenchanted with buy-and-hold

investing (a long-term strategy based on the view that financial markets will pay off in the long run despite economic ups and downs) after years of riding the investment roller coaster. “You feel terrible when the market’s in a downturn and your investments are doing poorly and you lose much of the gains that you had made in the year or two previous,” said Geary. One problem, he said, is that most people become buy-and-hold investors by default when they work with a financial advisor. See GEARY, Page 29

Comic strip play

C

h i l l i w a c k’s m u s i c a l theatre company Secondary Characters is preparing for its upcoming production of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. Based on the classic comic strips of Charles Schultz, Charlie Brown gives audiences a humorous glimpse into a day in the life of Charlie Brown, Snoopy and four more of the comic’s well-loved characters. Featuring upbeat music, a cartoon-inspired set and costumes, and a witty script, this is a classic production that will appeal to kids and adults alike. This year’s production presents a strong ensemble cast; all six cast members come from the UFV theatre department, and five also sing with vocal octet Pieces of Eight. Depicting the title character is Stephen Wilhite, with his trusty sidekick Snoopy, played by Tim Howe. Rounding out the cast is Katherine Beswick as bossy Lucy, Caroline Davies as Charlie’s younger sister Sally, Aaron Froc as Lucy’s little brother Linus, and Jeff Dressler as music-loving Schroeder. Secondary Characters presented Little Women, the Musical last summer, the inaugral production of what is set to become a summer tradition. Bringing together musical theatre artists of all ages

ARTS FESTIVAL FIRST NATIONS VOICES

and backgrounds, Secondary Characters’ mission is to provide an outlet for both adults and youth. While Chilliwack has many musical theatre programs for youth, the community was missing a summer musical program for all ages, and Secondary Characters was founded to fill that need. Directing the musical is Andrew Smith, director of the Chilliwack School of Performing Arts. Shelley Wojcik is choreographer, and leading a five-piece live orchestra is music director Nicola Davies. Set design is by Kate Whyte, props design by Alyson Seale, costume design by Caroline Davies, and lighting design by Jamea Lister. You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown runs July 28 to Aug. 7 at the UFV Theatre in Chilliwack, July 28, 29 and 30 at 7:30 p.m., with matinees July 30 and 31 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $17.50 adults, $14.50 students/seniors, $10 for the July 28 preview, and $18.50/15.50 for opening night with reception. ◗ 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.

Travel protected from the unexpected. You may be surprised to learn that medical care outside of B.C. can be very expensive - especially in the United States. For example, the average cost of emergency in-patient hospital care in the United States often exceeds $1,000 USD per day, and can even be as high as $10,000 USD per day for intensive care. And since Health Insurance BC (formerly MSP) may cover as little as 10 per cent of the medical expenses you could face TRAVEL INSURANCE when travelling outside WITH B.C., the Ministry of Health Services strongly DONNA WYANT advises buying additional medical insurance even if you only plan to leave the country for one day.

PUBLIC NOTICE Marble Hill & Chilliwack Mountain Drinking Water Distribution Systems

It’s wise to check the Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada website at voyage.gc.ca. Select your destination and the Entry/Exit Requirements section will provide you with the travel insurance requirements. If you have confirmed coverage through your credit card or extended benefits program, be sure to obtain the proper documentation to meet the entry requirements of your destination(s).

INSURANCE OUTLOOK

The City of Chilliwack is currently performing maintenance work on both the Marble Hill & Chilliwack Mountain drinking water distribution systems, from approximately July 18th through to July 22nd, 2011. The work necessitates the chlorination of the drinking water supply in the following areas ONLY:

• Marble Hill Area (Excluding Palmer Place & Brookwood Place) • Chilliwack Mountain Area

Many B.C. residents already have limited travel insurance coverage through their credit card or employer extended benefits program. However, this coverage often doesn’t have a high enough dollar limit or cover you for the number of days per trip you require.

No other area of the City’s drinking water system is affected by this notice. Chlorination is used to maintain water quality to acceptable standards while maintenance is being carried out on the system. The level of chlorination used is minimal and is well within the Canadian Drinking Water Quality Guidelines.

Know before you go. Reviewing your travel insurance is increasingly important as some countries are now monitoring travellers’ coverage prior to crossing their borders. In fact, it was recently announced that several European countries are advising travellers to be prepared to show proof of medical coverage and may also impose a minimum coverage requirement.

Should you have any questions or concerns please contact the Public Works Department at 604-793–2810 or visit our website at www.chilliwack.com/chlorination.

Travel with peaceof-mind. If you find that your current coverage is inadequate to completely protect you from the financial devastation an accident or injury could cause, investigate additional coverage like emergency excess medical insurance, to be protected and enjoy peaceof-mind during your travels. Remember to purchase your coverage before leaving B.C. Coverage is available through private insurers, such as BCAA, who offer at least five million dollars in emergency medical coverage. Always carry your declaration page with you when travelling as proof of your insurance coverage. For more information about travel insurance talk to your local BCAA Insurance Agent today. Donna Wyant is a Sales Centre Assistant Sales Manager - Insurance at BCAA. She can be reached at donna.wyant@bcaa.com.

“[Financial planners] have to have hundreds of clients to make a living, so they don’t have time to look at your account individually,” said Geary. “They’re going to pick a couple [mutual funds] for you with good long-term track records and they’re going to hold you in there and maybe switch it up every few years.” In After the Haircut, Geary introduces readers to his own system for shorter-term investing that he says gives people more control over their money. “If you just scratch the surface a bit, do a little reading, you can do as well or better than the professionals can because you’re actually making the decisions,” he said. For readers who might be reluctant to get their investing advice from a high school English teacher, Geary (who was on his way to becoming a financial advisor when he landed a full-time teaching job in the mid1990s) says his track record speaks for itself. From Sept. 30, 2008 to Sept. 30, 2009, which included the greatest market collapse since the Great Depression, he said his investment system returned more than 32 per cent while the DOW lost over 10 per cent. Geary chose a fictional vehicle to communicate his investing advice because, he said financial planning books tend to be a little dry. Setting the book at Cultus Lake, where he lives, also allowed him to educate readers about another issue near and dear to his heart—the plight of the Cultus Lake Sockeye, whose stocks have decline precipitously over the last 12 years. Along with sage advice about investing,

Cancer June 21-July 22: A month of lucky money interests faces you. Chase dollars, buy/sell. A slowdown or “backtracking” period will arrive early next week, so finish projects or reprise old ones rather than begin anything. Seek new clients among old contacts. Your memory will not be reliable soon, so take notes, write appointments on a calendar, etc. An old money issue might arise; you’ll finally pay up, or be paid. This is also a sensual period – your sex appeal, determination and “career clout” will grow soon (in August, not now). Sunday’s happy! Lie low Monday-Wednesday. Shine, Thursday/Friday! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Your clout, charisma and energy grow now to late August – you’ll get your way. But don’t start important projects. You’ll grow a bit indecisive soon – to Aug. 26. A slowdown, backtracking period affects everyone, causing missed appointments, broken promises, unexpected delays. But for you, the effect is more personal: you will reconsider your goals, your money situation/ plans, and your social desires. It isn’t major, and you almost don’t notice, as you feel sweet, loved: but it’s there. Don’t start anything new. Wishes come true Monday-Wednesday. Saturday, you attract love! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: A slowdown looms in August, so don’t start anything new, even this week. A month of reduced energy, rest and contemplation has begun. Start to slow down, retreat from the hectic fray. Sidestep competitive situations. Though you face some weeks of relative solitude, it will be a sweet solitude. Be spiritual, charitable. Deal with government and institutions – these will treat you graciously and helpfully. Sunday’s sweet, gentle. Be ambitious Monday to Wednesday. You’re wishful, optimistic Thursday/Friday: enjoy the mood, forget the results. Find a valuable secret Saturday!

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: A month of romance arrives. It grows sweet, lucky Thursday onward, when Venus enters your love sign. You could fall in love! (Maybe with someone from the past – an old flame, or a former co-worker or friend.) Instead of romance, the weeks ahead could bring a creative project, vacation, educational program, speculative venture or sports involvement. The same influences apply: you’re lucky, and the past will hold sway. (E.g., visit a former vacation spot.) Finish rather than begin things now: a slowdown looms. Tuesday/Wednesday are very friendly, Saturday’s lucky, love-starred! Taurus April 20-May 20: Don’t start anything new before Aug. 26. The weeks ahead feature home, family, property, security, retirement (or plans for, if you’re young). They can also tempt you to start a new project in these areas, or can bring an old/ former project back. The latter’s lucky, the former (the new) is not. Generally, these areas will be fortunate, especially this Thursday onward. You’ll be shutting down one connection or situation in your life, and beginning another. You might need a rest. If so, take it now: go camping, or sleep away few afternoons in the backyard hammock. Life’s easy! Gemini May 21-June 20: Wrap up, finish rather than begin. A slowdown or “retracing steps” influence lies just ahead. A month of travel, communications, paperwork and casual friends and siblings has just begun. You might take a very pleasant trip soon to a former haunt, visit long-lost friends, etc. Welcome the past, beware the entirely new. Your determination and sex appeal remain high this week, especially Monday to Wednesday (new friends, wishes fulfilled!). Rest, retreat Sunday. Be careful with money Thursday. August will bring major (mostly lucky) money flows: be cheap, savings oriented.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: A slowdown looms in August, so finish rather than start projects. A month of happiness, popularity, wish fulfillment, entertainment, light romance and social delights has just begun – the weekend coming (July 30/31) will bring sparkling evidence of this. You could fall in love, make a new friend, even meet a life-mate. This Monday to Wednesday are almost the same, except that the mood is more gentle – and serious. Now, how does this “big new love” vibe reconcile with the “don’t start anything” period that looms? Not sure. The love might connect to the past – yet not an ex. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Start nothing; finish instead. The month ahead (to Aug. 26) brings slowdowns, missed meetings, short supplies, etc. Have a Plan B – this is important, because you have just entered a career month, in which higher-ups will be expecting you to perform, and important people will be watching. So plan contingencies (and check supplies, firm up schedules, etc.) now, while you’re still in a strong, good phase. Enjoy relationships Sunday. Finances, research, sexual urges, all succeed Monday to Wednesday. Great work/career luck Wednesday and July 30/31 – it might entail “an end.” Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: August will bring slowdowns, indecision and backtracking, so finish projects now; start nothing important. A four-week streak of great intellectual, travel, international, educational, cultural, religious and love pursuits faces you – with good luck Monday to Wednesday (when relationships, marriage, contracts, opportunities and new horizons are accented) and even more so July 30/31, when friendship and love are hard to tell apart! But in pursuing these, stick to a past or ongoing connection rather than creating a purely new undertaking. An old flame might be on the horizon.

July 24 - 30, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Start nothing new. You’ve had an exciting month, but a more telling, significant (and beneficial) one lies ahead: a month of depth, mysteries, sexual intimacy (or urges, at least!) health diagnosis, financial engineering, investments/debt, and significant commitments, lifestyle changes – all very fortunate Wednesday and July 30/31. Because these themes exist largely within a “backtracking” influence now, don’t look for nor pursue the completely new – seek a connection to the past. (E.g., an investment you pondered last year.) Step lightly with relationships, eight weeks. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: An exciting month has just started. Usually the weeks ahead would bring new people, new challenges and opportunities, and new horizons into your life – but this time they are likely to bring the “renewed” – opportunities from the past, ex-flames, etc. Pursue these, or stick to ongoing relationships, agreements, etc. Soon, your work is going to be very hectic, and you won’t have room to cultivate a brand-new link anyway. That said, what does come is romantic and fortunate Monday to Wednesday, and exciting and luck-starred July 30/31! Be careful with tools, health, work Thursday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Don’t start anything new before Aug. 26. A month of work, health chores, nutrition, and care of kids/pets has begun. Overall good: co-workers will be pleasant, kids well-behaved (to a point, of course) and your health should hold up well. (Watch sweets, blood sugar and digestive areas.) In addition, newly cheerful friends will surround you, and a strong streak of romance will exist. So you’ll survive; you’ll sidestep terminal boredom. Property and family are lucky Monday-Wednesday. Work/ money luck soars July 30/31. Romance has a snag or a joy Thursday night: marriage! timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
