Maple Creek students help their peers Since anti-bullying program began two years ago, school officials have noted fewer serious incidents Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com Every week, Shireen Foroghi and Adam Foster don their red T-shirts with pride and enthusiasm. The Grade 8 Maple Creek Middle students in Port Coquitlam do so as part of a group of kids taking part in a unique program to curb bullying in their school. Shireen and Adam are peer mediators. Essentially, each student volunteers one day a week to walk the hallways and school grounds during break and lunch looking to help kids who may be feeling harassed or lonely. “I hate it when I see people getting bullied, so I try to help in any way possible,” Adam told The NOW. The school has 40 peer mediators in grades 7 and 8, who have all received special training to help support kids being bullied. They are carefully handpicked for their leadership potential, empathy and caring. About 80 students each year sign up to be mediators. Eight mediators are deployed for each day of the school week. Adam’s shift is a Friday, while Shireen works the Monday. Shireen said she noticed a lot of kids in the school were having trouble connecting with others and were sad and lonely, so she wanted to help. “That’s why we’re here, to help them get used to people talking to them and get used to sharing their problems,” she said, noting it was her first year in the role. Both students have their own personal experience with bullying. Shireen was bullied in Grade 6 when she arrived in middle school, while Adam was teased about his weight when he was younger. Both kids want to make sure the younger students coming up in the school don’t experience the same treatment they received. It’s important to note the mediators aren’t hall monitors looking to tattle on another student for an infraction. The students are there to mediate social conflict situations or to help kids engage in a social situation. That could be as simple as hanging out with the bullied student, or introducing them to school activities. But if the students do spot a situation outside of their abilities to handle, they discreetly tell the school counsellor, who can take over. Adam pointed out some of his fellow students don’t care much for the mediators, while some don’t want the help.

Adam Foster and Shireen Foroghi are peer mediators at Maple Creek Middle School, helping students who are being harassed. However, he added many of the kids to whom they reach out come back the next day seeking a mediator. The school’s counsellor, Harriette Chang, is behind the program. She was looking for some type of conflictresolution strategy for her students. More specifically, she was looking for a more sophisticated version of what is being taught to younger kids when it comes to bullying and conflict. Younger kids are taught the acronym WITS, which encourages kids to walk away, ignore, talk it out and seek help. So Chang discovered a new five-step program called LEADS, an acronym that encourages students to look and listen, explore other points of view, act, did it work?, and seek help. She is quick to point out the peer mediator initiative is just part of the overall LEADS and bullying strategy in the school. LEADS provides students with strategies

to deal with conflict — which includes role playing various social situations — while the school is active in encouraging its kids to get involved in a myriad of programs and clubs being offered. So far, the initiative has worked. School officials note a steady decline in the number of office referrals and incidents for serious issues in the two years since LEADS was introduced. “If we can empower kids to be leaders amongst themselves, we’re going to be way ahead of the game,” Chang said. The school board in Prince George recently took an interest in Maple Creek’s success, implementing a similar LEADS program in that school district. Maple Creek principal Bill Trask is also firmly behind the program, attributing much of the decrease in bullying to LEADS. “It’s real life problems and real life ways of solving it,” he said, noting the program teaches

students tough adult skills and common sense. Though both educators acknowledge the program may not completely stop bullying and harassment at the school, they suggest the steps taken through LEADS have helped foster a culture of caring and respect in the halls. Chang also believes peer mediation works because it empowers the students to be leaders. “We find kids listen to their peers sometimes more than they do adults,” she said. It also gives the mediators a sense of satisfaction that they’ve helped out someone in need. For Shireen and Adam, who patrol the halls each week, they’re also convinced their efforts are helping make the school a better place. And as they get set to move on to the even bigger and more dramatic confines of high school, the two students would like to see a similar program implemented at their next educational stop. twitter.com/jercoquitlamnow

Sign aims to raise awareness of killing of horses in Canada for human consumption Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com

Y

ou might have seen it while driving by on your way to work in Port Coquitlam. It’s a billboard with a couple of cute horses, but the message is anything but cuddly. Located at Lougheed Highway and Shaughnessy Street, the scrawling type reads, “It’s time for the horror to end … Stop slaughtering us.” The ad was inspired by a U.S.-based advocacy group called Angel Acres, which launched a similar ad campaign south of the border to stop the slaughter of horses in Canada for human consumption. The billboard, which was erected on Nov. 2, is just one of three in Canada and the only one in B.C. Charlotte Uhrich, who sponsored the sign with the support of the Canadian Horse Defence Coalition, said the location was chosen both because of it’s a high traffic area and the sign company, CBS Outdoor Canada, was the only one that would do it. The billboard is in support of an NDP private member’s bill in Parliament that would prohibit the importation or exportation of horses for slaughter for human consumption. “We need Canadians to know we’re slaughtering our companion animals in Canada and the meat is being sent for foreign dinner plates,” Uhrich told The NOW, noting there are four

The other two billboards are located in Ottawa and Calgary. So far, Uhrich said there hasn’t been any reaction to the billboard in B.C., but she noted an awareness campaign

is only just starting. But for just how long the billboard will stay up remains a question. Uhrich said the PoCo billboard was the most expensive of the three, adding she doesn’t have any big sponsors to help pay for the message.

The billboard costs $2,000 a month, and she doubted she could afford to keep the ad in the current location. According to CBS Outdoor Canada’s website, the company is a division of CBS Corp., a major broadcast network in the U.S.

It isn’t always cheap carrying out the business of a provincial politician. But at least now taxpayers have a better idea of how much it actually costs their local MLA to be on the road. For the first time, the province’s legislative assembly has released the travel expenses for MLAs from the period of April 1 to Sept. 30, 2012. Of the four Tri-Cities MLAs, Coquitlam-Burke Mountain MLA Doug Horne topped the list, spending $22,851. The Liberal MLA spent $8,757 on accommodations in Victoria and $1,883 for a per diem. Members are paid a per diem of $61 while in Victoria on assembly business where

no receipts are required. Horne spent $1,595 on in-constituency travel and another $8,646 on general travel, which included $424 per diem. He spent another $1,546 on four trips for what is listed as accompanying person travel. Members are allowed up to 12 trips per fiscal year to be used by an accompanying person. Next was Port Coquitlam MLA Mike Farnworth, who spent a total of $16,767 on travel expenses during the reporting period. Those expenses included $6,000 on accommodations in Victoria and a per diem of $1,194, another $1,595 on in-constituency travel and $7,762 on general travel with $216 per diem. Port Moody-Coquitlam MLA Joe Trasolini, who was elected

in mid April, spent $12,263 on travel expenses. The numbers include $6,000 on accommodations in Victoria and a per diem of $959, another $1,428 on inconstituency travel and $3,656 on general travel with $221 per diem. The most frugal was retiring Coquitlam-Maillardville MLA Diane Thorne, who spent $10,050 during the period, including $6,000 on Victoria accommodations and a per diem of $989. She also spent $1,595 on in-constituency travel, $893 on general travel with $185 per diem and $389 on accompanying person travel. The expenses were made public after a damning auditor general’s report, which found the books of the province’s legislature were a mess.

However, critics have suggested expenses aren’t detailed enough. For more than a year, Independent MLA Bob Simpson has been putting detailed expense reports on his website regularly. Trasolini said he expects at some point that will be the norm for all MLAs. “There is nothing there to hide. I would have no problem in showing everyone what my expenses are,” he said, adding he was surprised after being elected to find the reporting hadn’t been done previously. Trasolini argued any time public officials are using taxpayers’ money, the details should be made available to anybody. Horne said he hopes the release of travel expenses will help the public gain a better

understanding of MLA spending. “I’m a big believer in transparency and letting people know and understand how their money is being spent,” he said. However, the MLA questioned how much value there would be in offering more detailed reports, noting the time factor involved in doing so. “I think it’s good to find a place where it’s not onerous, that we are actually spending time on what the people are electing us to do, and that is to represent them,” he said, adding he hasn’t received a letter from a single constituent suggesting it’s an important issue. The legislature is expected to release office allowance expense reports in January.

Taxation & Accounting

MP expenses surpass those of MLAs

◗ Bookkeeping & Payroll ◗ Business & Personal Taxes ◗ Financial Statements ◗ CRA Audit Representation ◗ Trust Audits and Tax Returns

Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com If taxpayers are of the mind that their local MLAs are spending big money on expenses, it’s nothing compared to the federal politicians. According to MP expenditure reports released by the Board of Internal Economy, New Westminster-Coquitlam MP Fin Donnelly spent $462,105 and Port MoodyWestwood-Port Coquitlam MP James Moore spent $505,412 in the 2011 fiscal year to do their work as MPs. The fiscal year runs from April 1, 2011 to March 31, 2012, while the report was released at the end of October. The report breaks the expenses into six categories, from travel and printing to advertising and employee salaries. Donnelly spent $212,841 on salaries, $124,844 on travel, $18,945 on accommodations and per diem expenses and $3,637 on hospitality and events. He spent $13,267 on advertising and $18,401 under the

heading “printing,” which went toward householders, or mailing out information to homes in his riding, but chose not to spend any money on what’s called “ten percenters.” Under the rules, MPs can only print up to four householders a year, which can go to every household in the riding, but can produce an unlimited amount of ten percenters, which are distributed to 10 per cent of the riding. Around the office, the MP also spent $29,443 on office leases and utilities, $587 for furniture, $10,137 on telecommunication services and $3,517 for material and supplies. Donnelly spent a total of $455,545 on expenses in the 2010 fiscal year. Moore chose to spend his money a little differently. The long-time MP spent $158,216 on employee salaries, $203,800 on travel, $26,238 on accommodations and per diem expenses and $3,533 on hospitality and events. Moore spent $20,982 on advertising and another $5,269 on householders and $6,835 on ten percenters.

In the office, he spent $37,765 on office leases and utilities, $858 on furniture and equipment, $15,917 on telecommunications services and $5,663 in materials and supplies. Moore spent a total of $478,224 on expenses in the 2010 fiscal year. MPs across Canada came under fire in 2010 for at first refusing to let then-auditor general Sheila Fraser examine expenses, but shortly after relented, giving her access to the expenses.

Police continue investigation Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com Mounties are still in search of a suspect who tried to abduct an 11-year-old girl from a PoCo neighbourhood last weekend. RCMP Const. Jamie Phillipson said investigators have no suspects in mind, nor has another attempt been reported. But that doesn’t mean police want the public to let their guard down. “We want the general public to remain vigilant and keep their eyes and ears open on the streets,” Phillipson said. According to police, the girl was walking the family dog along Knappen Street in the Citadel Heights area Sunday afternoon when a man in a white van “We want the drove up. The man allegedly got out of the vehicle and general public to started walking toward the girl. remain vigilant and She turned to run, and the keep their eyes and suspect gave chase.

The suspect is described as a white man in his late 30s, standing five-feet 11-inches tall, with short brown hair and blue eyes. He has a scar above his right eye, a black lip ring on his lower lip and possibly a black tattoo on his left neck area. The suspect was also wearing a black American Eagle hoodie with the logo across the chest area, black pants and black “skater-style” shoes. The van was described as a white late-90s Ford cargo van with tinted front windows. The rear and back windows were “spray-painted” white, and rust spots were noted above the tires, while the front plate was partially painted over. School District 43 officials issued the police press release to all schools in the district, with a request that schools in the Citadel area send the information home to parents. Anyone with information related to the incident is asked to call Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550 and quote file number 2012-31053.

MAXIMUM MONEY for “PAIN AND SUFFERING” from ACCIDENT

She was hit in three separate accidents. And – in probably the largest similar court award ever made in Canada – a Vancouver jury initially gave her over $12 million. Part of that was $6.5 million for “non-pecuniary compensation” (legal short-hand for pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment of life). Too much money? You’re right if you agree. In the attention-grabbing case, the BC Court of Appeal revisited when the maximum judgment can be awarded for pain and suffering. The plaintiff (let’s call her “Joan”) was hurt in three different accidents over a 15-month period, where she was not at fault. She suffered soft tissue injuries to her neck and, after the accidents, experienced continual upper body pain and depression and was unable to function effectively in the business she and her husband owned. Before the car accidents, Joan had been injured in an accident at the PNE, which caused a mild concussion, and she later had surgery after a disc herniation was found. This raised the question of how much of her situation was due to the car accidents rather than her pre-existing condition. But she testified that she felt her condition was improving before the car accidents (and compensation can still be given if a subsequent accident aggravates a pre-existing condition). At trial, the judge told the Vancouver jury that Canada has an upper limit or cap on the compensation that can be given for pain and suffering. Asked by the judge if they meant to award that top amount, the jury said yes and cut this part of its award to the maximum allowed. The trial judge determined this figure to be roughly $327,000. Adjusted for inflation, this is the equivalent of the $100,000 maximum amount for pain and suffering fixed by the Supreme Court of Canada in

1978. The defendants appealed what they viewed as a still-excessive court award totalling over $6 million, and asked for a new trial. The BC Court of Appeal agreed there should be a new trial for several reasons. One reason related to the amount for pain and suffering. The appeal court pointed out that the maximum award of some $327,000 is only for cases of “truly catastrophic injury,” which the plaintiff Joan admittedly hadn’t endured. When the Supreme Court of Canada fixed this cap in 1978, it dealt with three very serious injury cases – a 17-year old with a neck injury resulting in loss of use of all limbs, a 21-year old quadriplegic and a four-year old with serious brain damage and debilitating physical injuries. The court there, noting that no money can provide true compensation, explained that the pain and suffering award is meant to help make the victim’s life more endurable (rather than express sympathy). Also, a cap would help prevent runaway insurance premiums in Canada. If awards were too high, reasoned the court, no one but the very rich could own a car and pay the huge premiums that insurance companies would have to charge to pay out on claims. Of course, an innocent victim hurt in a car accident may be entitled to other types of compensation too, e.g., for medical expenses, income loss, future care and lost earning capacity. If you have the misfortune of being injured, consult a lawyer who can help you with recovering the fair compensation that may be your due.

New Coquitlam library opens on Tuesday

YOU SURVIVED THE FALL

John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com Simply put, it’s got a whole lot more of everything. Coquitlam’s new City Centre library branch is slated to open to the public on Tuesday, Nov. 13 at its new location at 1169 Pinetree Way. And with the new location comes a myriad of new features: an additional 24,000 square feet of space, 90 parking stalls and 20 more computer stations. “It’s looking great,” said Rhian Piprell, director of the Coquitlam Public Library system. “We’re looking forward to being right in the middle of Coquitlam. We think that we’re going to be very popular where we are.” The library’s old home, adjacent to City Hall, only featured about 11,000 square feet of space and suffered from a lack of parking. “The amount of parking is a big one,” Piprell said. “We’ve been struggling with parking at the old library for a long time, and we’ll have 90 spaces that are our very own.” As part of expansion plans for the library, council allo-

Other additions include a raised fireplace lounge, three multipurpose rooms that can collapse into a singular conference room and a dedicated multilingual space. The latter will include world language books focusing on the Farsi, Korean and Chinese languages, and a dedicated corner for conversation circles has also been set up to assist English as a sec-

It’s difficult to picture a building this big as being cozy, but in fact, it is.” Though the library opens its doors to the public on Tuesday, a grand opening event is set for Nov. 24 from 12:30 to 4 p.m.

District OKs Parkland sale Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com The plan to turn a portion of land around Parkland Elementary in Coquitlam into market housing is now in the hands of the province and city council. On Tuesday, the school board voted in favour of a proposal to develop a portion of the school’s property for single-family housing. If approved by the two levels of government, it would be the first such sale for the district. Board chair Melissa Hyndes said the board weighed the evidence in a district report recommending the sale move forward. She said it appeared the land at the school was not being used, and hadn’t been for some time. “The board felt that is was a good test site,” Hyndes said, adding the district will be looking at other schools with excess land to sell in the coming years.

She also noted there was little opposition to the proposal from parents or neighbours. Specifically, the proposal is to create eight lots along Como Lake Avenue. The sale could generate about $3 million to $5 million for the district. The next step involves Ministry of Education approval and a zoning change from the City of Coquitlam. There is no timetable set for when the district will meet with the ministry or the city. In October, the district scrapped a similar plan to sell a portion of excess land at Porter Street Elementary. In that case, the plan drew fierce opposition from parents and neighbours of the school who argued the land was used extensively. The district originally intended to sell both lots at market value with the revenue generated to be used for capital improvements at schools in the area. The district has 34 capital projects on the books worth a total value of $276 million.

Home invasion on Coast Meridian Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com Coquitlam Mounties continue to investigate a home invasion in Port Coquitlam earlier in the week, but believe the house was mistakenly targeted. Police said several suspects forced their way into a home on Coast Meridian Avenue in the early morning hours

of Monday, Nov. 5. They searched the home and took several items before leaving. RCMP Const. Jamie Phillipson said the victims are not known to police and there does not appear to be any connection with drugs or illegal activity. Instead, he said there is every indication the house was mistakenly targeted. However, he couldn’t say how many suspects were involved or what they might

have been looking for. The investigation is continues, and Phillipson noted police are working closely with the victims to get a description of the suspects. “No physical injuries, but the victims are shaken up, that’s for sure,” he said. Anyone with information related to this incident is asked to call the local detachment at 604-945-1550 and quote file 2012-31079.

Opinion

Credit card fees are too high While Finance Minister Jim Flaherty has finally taken some action against abusive business practices of pre-paid credit cards, he continues to ignore the elephant in the room: outrageous credit card fees that cost small businesses billions every year. Each year, Visa and Mastercard charge businesses an estimated $5 billion through hidden fees. These fees range from 1.5 per cent to three per cent on each purchase, which is almost twice To The the fee charged to Europeans, New Zealanders and Australians. In contrast, Interac charges a flat fee of approximately 12 cents, regardless of the value of the purchase. For example, a three-per-cent hidden credit card fee on a $500 iPad is $15. But if you use a debit card instead, the fee is only 12 cents. You can probably guess where the money to pay these extra fees comes from. Because credit card companies use their market power to prevent businesses from charging fees on transactions made with Visa or Mastercard, merchants have little choice but to embed those costs in the prices of goods sold to all customers. The real

impact of hidden credit card fees is that everyone pays higher prices, regardless of how they pay. The Liberal Party has been calling for tougher rules for years, but Minister Flaherty has not only been ignoring this problem, he has worsened the situation. He has allowed card issuers (the banks) to offer both Visa and Mastercard, rather than one or the other. This has created a perverse situation whereby these companies now Editor compete to offer higher fees to banks, with the extra costs once again being passed off to small businesses and their customers. Things are getting even worse, with Visa set to introduce “ultra-premium” cards with even higher fees next year. It is long past time that the Conservative government take action against the anti-competitive practices of credit card companies. It wouldn’t cost taxpayers a dime and would save small businesses and consumers billions. MP Joyce Murray Liberal Party of Canada Critic for Small Business

Spare a moment

A

moment of silence is not too big a price to pay. It’s easily less a price than that paid by those for whom Remembrance Day is observed each year. It’s far less than the price paid by those who are commemorated by cenotaphs across the country. It’s certainly far less a price than the one paid by those whose names are engraved on thousands upon thousands of crosses and stone markers in Belgium and Holland and France and throughout most of Western Europe. A moment of silence can’t be compared with the “ultimate price.” And it doesn’t compare to those who return, some of them broken in body, some broken in spirit, and all with memories they’d rather forget. For them — and for all those whose personal memories were obliterated on battlefields where such high prices are always exacted — we need to remember. Taking a moment out of the day on Nov. 11 to honour the memories of those who died in war on our behalf, as well as those who risked death to preserve freedom and a better way of life, is more than an appreciation for the incredible sacrifices they made. As important as it is to ensure that veterans and survivors understand their sacrifices are not overlooked by those of us who are the recipients of the world they built, it is also important that we all remember what was sacrificed, and how steep the price was that was paid — so there is a common understanding that no such price should be paid again. Remembrance Day ceremonies will take place in all three Tri-Cities: • In Coquitlam, a service is planned for 10 a.m. in the auditorium at Como Lake Middle School at 1121 King Albert Ave., followed by a parade to the cenotaph on Veterans Way (Porter Street) at 10:30 a.m., laying of wreaths at the cenotaph at 11 a.m. and a parade from the cenotaph to the Legion hall at Nelson and Ridgeway avenues at 11:30 a.m. • In PoCo, an indoor service is planned for 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. at Wilson Centre, 2150 Wilson Ave., followed by a parade to the cenotaph and services at Veterans Park (at City Hall) at 11 a.m. • In Port Moody, the Legion at 2513 Clarke St. will host services.

Perspective

A day to honour the heroes we never knew S ome may think it old-fashioned that we reserve under “loose lips sink ships” lock-and-key. Talking about their time in uniform just wasn’t a single day to remember our soldiers, past and done. But in school and at home, we learned John present.

relatives who offered this sacrifice and are now gone. The local cenotaph will be surrounded by people of all ages on Sunday. We will stand together as one, silently and shoulder to shoulder, friend to stranger, old to young, and pay our respects. A few minutes of reflection and tribute are no sacrifice but they are important just the same. It is a wisp of air, a thin thread in a kilometre-long cloth that we need to keep alive in their memory. After the last wreaths are laid and poppies unpinned, we return to our homes and regular routines. But this simple act is a reminder, a recognition of what we are blessed with, and for who helped deliver it. Before I go to the ceremony on Sunday, I will look again at two faded, 70-year-old photos — my mother among a group of 34 uniformed women on benches outside a cold, icicle-laced building; my father, an 18-year-old son of a farmer hugging his mother on a bare prairie setting — and wonder. There are no answers for the questions that I never asked. All there is is this one day. A day to honour all the heroes we will never know.

Bullies are sometimes teachers, one former student writes. before I was called into the classroom and took my seat. My teacher never did bother to ask me why I was late, and I was too frightened to speak to her. Each morning began with anxiety. I had a problem keeping my breakfast down thinking about another intimidating day, and did not tell my parents. I was singled out for many incidents beyond my

h&

iz pr

control, such as lack of school supplies, or the wrong ones — having a metal pencil case that made too much noise that would cause her temper to resurface. But the most memorable incident which destroyed my selfesteem was the day she chose only my composition out of the 40-plus to illustrate how not to write a composition (I would like to

mention that the curriculum was way behind where I came from, compared to my new school). She stood in front of the class and, in a very loud clear voice, began reading my story, with an exaggerated emphasis on my very short immature sentences, pausing for effect after each sentence to allow the students to take in the show. I sat through that in total shame while the students roared with laughter as she continued this way to the end. This teacher did not have a one-on-one conversation with me about any concerns she had. I was never sent to see the principal. She did not lay a hand on me. Although I did not realize it at the time, I now consider her actions as a form of psychological bullying, and I took it with silence. That year came at a great cost to me. I came as a happy, quiet child full of confidence and finished that year as an anxious person, one who struggled with low selfesteem and authority figures. As a shy, quiet child with “a slight German accent, wearing strange attire,” I could have been vulnerable and a target for bullying. However, it did not come from my fellow classmates. It came from my teacher. Although I have long since forgiven her, thinking about that school year 70 years ago still deeply affects me to this day. A. Harrison Coquitlam

Re: “Sometimes teachers are the bullies,” letter to the editor, Friday, Nov. 2. The letter from Frank Sterle regarding “sometimes teachers are bullies” prompted me to respond, as I too was bullied by my teacher. As an eightyear-old girl ready to begin To The Editor Grade 3, I left a small German community in rural Saskatchewan and said goodbye to the one-room, one-teacher school where I felt welcome and happy. I was somewhat overwhelmed to enrol in a class of 40-plus students, but was eager to begin a new life in B.C. It was the only school in Port Coquitlam at the time, and because I lived three and one half miles from school, my father drove me each morning and I consistently arrived late, a problem beyond my ability to change. My teacher made me stand in the hall every morning. I felt excluded and unwelcome. I never did know what the first lesson of the day was because I was not allowed to partake of it until the next lesson of the day. She made me stand in the hall every morning and stay there until the first lesson of the day was over

City has safety tips for walkers On Thursday afternoon, the City of Coquitlam, along with ICBC and the RCMP, were set to launch a pedestrian safety campaign by handing out reflectors to pedestrians around the intersection of Lougheed Highway and Pinetree Way. The purpose of this year’s campaign is to remind pedestrians about the need to “Be Bright, Be Seen, Be Safe,” and to make eye contact with drivers. “This program is a good reminder of how important it is that pedestrians take responsibility for their safety and make sure they can be seen by drivers,” Mayor Richard Stewart said in a press release. “Pedestrians can’t control what drivers do, but they can take simple steps to prevent injury and even death.” The program encourages pedestrians to wear light-coloured clothes, place reflective tape on outerwear, cross at lit intersections and make eye contact with drivers. The city also wants to remind pedestrians not to jaywalk — drivers aren’t necessarily looking for pedestrians away from intersections and crosswalks as they are focusing on the road and other drivers. “The responsibility is for motorists to yield to pedestrians at an intersection or in a crosswalk, and also for pedestrians not to cross in the middle of the block unless there is a marked crosswalk,” said Dan Mooney, manager of roads and traffic operations. “On average there are 100 injury and three fatal crashes per year involving pedestrians within the Tri-Cities. We’d like to see those numbers reduced.”

Learning to stand on Higher Ground

K

icking a nasty drug habit is a staggering task. But even after someone has thrown off the chains of addiction, there’s still a long way to go to reintegrate back into society without falling back to old behaviours. That’s where Port Coquitlam’s Stand Firm on Higher Ground program comes in. The program, run by the non-profit Higher Ground Wellness Society, recently graduated its first class of 13. “We see in recovery programs, there’s a fairly high percentage of relapse when they don’t have a good support network to go back to, and so many people may go through a recovery program and go right back into the same environment where they came from so it becomes difficult to make lasting change,” said Rebecca Friesen,

an instructor with Stand Firm, and a Higher Ground board member. “You need more than your detox and your initial recovery. You need to actually move into different circles of influence, and different relationships, sometimes different employment situations in order to get out of the environment that contributed to the addiction process in your life.” Students sit through classes three days a week for 10 weeks, switching focus every two weeks. Before graduating, students in Stand Firm get a back-to-basics approach to spiritual, physical, emotional, relationship and functional wellness. The program also connects students with mentors and local churches to help them maintain the progress they’ve made, and organizers are now putting together a program with TriCities business owners to get them working again. “This is a little more comprehensive. None of [the recovery houses]

will actually go into your career development path or educational goals to actually help [students] to make the decision to get out of [recovery] houses and get onto something new in their life,” Friesen said. “That’s quite unique. I haven’t found any other program that offers that.” The result is a class of students who emerge with a more solid footing in staying the right course for the rest of their lives. “It was very informative. It was combining all the aspects of life as well as bringing God into it and taking care of ourselves. It was good. It was a great experience,” said Mark Foreman, an alumnus of the first graduating class. Foreman spent 10 years with an on-again, off-again addiction to methamphetamines and did a stint in jail before going through the Hope for Freedom Society’s recovery program. Enjoying a renewed sense of control

over his life, Foreman isn’t ready to decide what to do yet, but he credits the program with helping him set his priorities straight. “It’s reinforced that I have to constantly keep doing the right things. Right now I’ve dedicated another six months of my life to doing volunteer work and giving back. I think that has a lot to do with the Stand Firm course,” Foreman said. “That’s the key to Stand Firm. It’s all about giving back. The more we give of ourselves, the less we take. Those are the habits we have to learn, and stop being so selfish and getting caught up in worldly things.” The Higher Ground Wellness Society operates entirely on donations, which are accepted through its website at www.hgws.org. The society is also in the running for a grant from the annual Aviva Community Fund. Residents can vote for Higher Ground to win the grant by visiting the society’s website.

A remarkable story of bravery and survival By John Goheen Chances are you’ve never heard of Leslie Ellis — his passing this past summer made no newspaper headlines; no television or radio broadcaster uttered a word about him. At 92 years of age, his longevity set him apart from most. And while I am sure he experienced his share of personal triumphs and tragedies in all those years of living, his anonymity would have been assured had it not been for that one fateful day 70 summers ago. That day was Aug. 19, 1942, the day the Canadians landed on the northern coast of Nazi-occupied France at Dieppe, Puys and Pourville. It was a day Ellis would never forget, and neither should we. Dieppe always was a summer holiday kind of town. Known as the “poor man’s Monte Carlo,” Dieppe is just two hours by car from Paris. Its two-kilometre-long

beach, great restaurants and lively casino made the area well known to French and British vacationers in pre-war days. To the east and west, Dieppe’s smaller neighbours, Puys and Pourville respectively, enticed sun seekers and artists, including Gaugin and Monet, with quiet beaches and beautiful scenery. This part of France should have remained nothing more than a sleepy summer getaway. Aug. 19, 1942 changed everything. “It felt like just another exercise,” or so Ellis thought as he and his comrades in the Royal Regiment of Canada made their final run into the beach at Puys. Part of the first wave of the assault, Ellis would be one of the first to land on this stretch of hostile shore codenamed “Blue Beach.” The pre-dawn darkness still concealed the Canadian landing craft but Ellis knew they were running late for the planned 04:50

landing. Dawn was fast approaching and that eerie pre-light time known as nautical twilight would soon reveal their movements to anyone on shore. The Royal Regiment’s assault on Blue Beach was one of five landings along 16 kilometres of coast that morning. Code named Operation Jubilee, the “Raid in Force” was supposed to unfold in two phases. Flanking attacks just before daylight at 04:50 to the extreme west and east by British Commandos were designed to knock out heavy guns situated on the headlands; these guns posed a real threat to the seaborne assault. Inner flanking assaults by Canadian units at Pourville to the west of Dieppe, and at Puys to the east, were designed to eliminate gun emplacements overlooking Dieppe’s beach and harbour. Once these heights were neutralized the main assault would go in 30

minutes later on Dieppe’s beach. Precise timing was critical in the Jubilee plan. The Royal Regiment had just 30 minutes to breach the 2.75metre seawall, scale the 25metre cliffs, get up into the headlands and neutralize a host of gun positions before the main assault went in at Dieppe. It all looked good on paper but at 05:00, 10 minutes after the Royals were scheduled to land, the landing craft assaults (LCAs) of the first wave were still at sea. Worse still, it was getting light by now, the element of surprise was gone and the landing craft carrying Ellis and the first wave were clearly visible to the German defenders at Puys. At 05:07, in daylight, the first LCAs dropped their ramps and the Germans opened fire. Ellis was lucky. He was about the fourth man out of his craft and in his haste to get on to shore he jumped into the water before the ramp

was even fully down. Getting nothing more than his feet wet, he managed to race up the beach to the seawall. Ellis’ speedy headstart jump probably saved him because, as he looked back towards the shoreline just seconds later, withering machine gun fire was sweeping the beach, cutting men down as they tried to get ashore. In mere seconds, Blue Beach turned into a killing zone. The beach at Puys is just under 200 metres wide and

ringed by 25 headlands at either end that provided the defender every advantage. The Canadians landing that morning were fired upon from front, sides and even from behind — such was the relative position of the cliffs to the beach. Of the approximately 100 Royals in the first wave, only about 15 even made it to the seawall. In a matter of minutes most were dead, dying or wounded. Those who made it to Continued on page 16

Leslie Ellis awarded Distinguished Combat Medal Continued from page 15 the wall had to scale its 2.75-metre height and get through a tangle of barbed wire along its top. Getting over the wall and through the wire would have been difficult enough during a training exercise. Doing so while under constant fire from all sides should have been impossible. And yet, somehow, Ellis found a way. I had the opportunity to ask him once how he managed to do it. Ellis found the stairway that led from the beach to the top of the seawall. Once there he faced a mass of triple concertinastyle barbed wire (cylindershaped coils of wire). It was “just like a tube,” he recalled. “I just crawled right through and got up into the hill.” With the Germans’ attention focused on the beach, Ellis’ movements uphill went undetected. From his new vantage he could see the houses in the village. He observed a German pillbox on the

opposite heights. Dust flying around the pillbox indicated it was being fired upon by the Royals from the beach, but Ellis did not see any activity in the pillbox. However, he noticed tracer bullets coming from some bushes next to the pillbox. All Ellis could make out was “a gleam of white,” which he took to be the face of the German gunner. A sniper by training, Ellis set his sights for 650 yards and fired at the white gleam. The tracer fire immediately changed direction upwards to the sky. The gunner had fallen back, dead, his finger still on the trigger. Incredibly, that was the first and last enemy Ellis saw that morning. Looking back towards the water he saw the landing craft of the second wave approaching. Knowing what was in store for them, he began to make his way back down to the beach. Partway down he came upon a badly wounded Canadian and half dragged, half carried

the man until he came upon more barbed wire. He started to make his way through with the wounded man in tow and encountered what he believed to be some communication wires. Giving these a tug, Ellis triggered either a booby trap or mine. The explosion killed the injured soldier and wounded Ellis in the face, hand and foot and ruptured his eardrum. Ellis’ ordeal was not over. Making his way back to the seawall he leaped over the wire and landed in more wire back on the beach. He immediately noticed there was little movement on the beach now. The dead and dying were scattered from the shoreline to the seawall. In the haze he observed an LCA attempting to take men off the beach. Despite his wounds, Ellis helped shove the overcrowded boat back into the water. So swamped was the boat that Ellis recalled the naval rating on board hitting the soldiers

trying to climb in from the sides. Something told Ellis not to enter that boat. Minutes later the boat had capsized, probably hit by a mortar round. At that moment, Ellis decided to swim for it. He took off his boots and stripped off his equipment and swam for his life — literally. A German sniper fired at him, just missing his nose by inches. He played dead for a while before resuming his swim. With his strength almost gone, Ellis came across a dead soldier floating in front of him; he removed the dead man’s lifebelt and carried on. The last thing he recalled before blacking out was an image of some men in a dinghy. These men saved Ellis, and eventually they were all picked up by the Royal Navy. The survivor defied all the odds. Ellis was the only man in the Royal Regiment to make it over the seawall at Blue Beach and return to

England. By all rights, the morning of Aug. 19, 1942 should have been his last. How he survived is nothing short of a miracle. Of the 554 Royals who assaulted Blue Beach 70 summers ago, 227 were killed, 136 wounded and 264 taken prisoner. Ellis’ first combat action was his last. He was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal, a rare award for bravery second only to the Victoria Cross, for his actions at Puys. He remained in the Army but never saw combat again. He had seen more than

enough. Just a month before the 70th anniversary of the raid was commemorated in Canada and France, Ellis passed away — quietly. How unlike the end for so many of his comrades all those years ago. Take heed of the inscription on the Royal Regiment of Canada Monument at Puys: “You who are alive on this beach, remember that these men died far from home so that others, here and elsewhere, might freely enjoy life in God’s mercy.” Lest we forget.

Cutting onions near the overhead fan of your stovetop is also an option as long as it is powerful enough to suck the fumes in that direction and away from your eyes. Using a summer fan on a stand, positioned to blow in the opposite direction of where you are standing at the cutting board, is also ideal. Even better would be to have a mini-sized fan that sits on the counter for these tearful chopping moments. Lastly, I want to tell you about the method that I use more often than the others: onion goggles. Yes, goggles specifically made to keep these harmful onion vapors away from your eyes that can be purchased from any specialty food or kitchenware store or online. They have a foam backing on them and they sit on your face just like glasses without pressure on your eye sockets or face from other so-called solutions such as swimming goggles or ski masks. I have cut many an onion with this great invention and since they come in an array of colors, not only will your eyes and cheeks stay dry, but you will also look stylish.

Dear Nicholas: It is important to know

that it is not good to use the refrigerator as a permanent storage solution for your onions — it will cause premature rotting and/or sprouting because it is too humid

and dark.

Parenting

Kids can learn about work by helping you

T

he other day I was shopping at our local grocery store and noticed a mom with her two children who appeared to be about two and three years of age. I was struck by the fact that Mom looked calm and comfortable despite shopping with two young children. Each child was towing a wheeled cart and when Mom took an item off the shelf she would put it in one or the other of the carts. The kids followed Mom through the store, helping her shop and it was an efficient and effective shopping trip. Watching this family reminded me that kids love to work with adults. Nothing thrills them more than being engaged with their parents in the day-to-day business of running a household. We all know that toddlers and preschoolers just love to help. The challenge is finding a way to engage them that is safe (cutting vegetables is not a good idea) and actually helpful or at least appears helpful to the child. Let’s take a look at the helpful aspect. There is no question that having a young-

was because they had helped their mom bring them home so that they could enjoy them for dinner. Many of us are busy trying to find ways to spend time with our kids but overlook the time we could spend working with them. While folding laundry, weeding the garden or preparing dinner together, you can also be chatting about school, about favourite books or about friends. You can also let the kids know that they are needed, that without their help the job just wouldn’t have gone as well. When you involve your kids as keen toddlers and preschoolers, you are setting a family practice that can continue when the kids are older. And when they are older their ability to be helpful increases. A toddler who rips lettuce for a salad, a preschooler who sets the table, and an elementary school-aged child who kneads bread become ‘tweens and teens who can cook dinner.

ART FANS: The Port Moody Art Association’s 45th-annual show and sale launched on Friday, Nov. 2 with a get-together featuring local artists. Former Anmore mayor Hal Weinberg, left, joined Port Moody Mayor Mike Clay, Valerie Simons and Robert Simons, president of the Port Moody Foundation.

The group will kick off Year 1 with a nineday run of the play Closer at the Vancouver East Cultural Centre (The Cultch), located at 1895 Venables St. in Vancouver. Centred around a “love quadrangle,” the show’s plot examines themes of love, lust and responsibilities as the four main characters date, deceive, manipulate, reject and ultimately love one another over time. “Closer is an enormously important play

Score Card

Wolves’ vets lead latest resurgence Every so often, the old guys get it done. The last two weeks, it’s been a bit of old and young getting the job done for the Coquitlam Metro-Ford premier Wolves. The Vancouver Metro Soccer League squad has treated its opponents with Obama-like fanfare, racking up victories over higher-ranked ICST Pegasus and Estrella de Chile. Saturday’s 3-2 decision over Estrella was a case of the veterans being difference makers, with Russel Huggon, Alfredo Valente and Andrew Veer leading the attack. Huggon scored twice, including a snappy header midway through the first half that proved to be the winner, as the Wolves improved to 3-3-3, tied for fifth place in the standings. “It was the old guns this time chipping in,” recalled Huggon of the win over first-place Estrella. “Alfredo moved the ball forward and gave me a perfect cross that I just headed into the net.” For Huggon, it was his third goal in the past two games. Earlier in the game, Coquitlam took its first lead against the flow of play after netminder Richard Causton turned back a couple of Chilean chances. Causton’s long goal kick was moved ahead by Veer to a streaking Huggon, who eluded two defenders before scoring from 18-yards out. While the visitors tied it, the Wolves responded again — this time with Valente converting a return pass from Adam Jones with a left-footed shot inside the far post. A handful of minutes later, Huggon gave Coquitlam a two-goal lead. It was shortlived, as Estrella cut the deficit to a goal with a quick reply before the end of the half. Neither team was able to score over the second half — although there were a handful of golden opportunities. Defenders Anthony DiNicolo and Carson Gill — part of the young guns who have bolstered Coquitlam’s lineup this season — kept the opposition in check most of the time. Causton made a couple of huge stops, including just before the final whistle. Metro-Ford’s goalkeeper successfully got across to  CONT. ON PAGE 32, see BLEND OF.

Mom leads the way for body builder Stories by Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com Marrianne Mino didn’t have far to look when it came to a role model. Her mother, Ayeshe, has been all that and more. As she prepares for her first-ever competition, Mino knows where the inspiration came from. “My mom has always been an active gymgoer,” says Mino. “She’s always been interested in health, about eating right. [She] got interested and competed in two bodybuilding shows herself. As a fan and a volunteer I got to see her journey and that motivated me.” For Mino, who at one time weighed nearly 200 pounds (90.7 kg), getting into a healthier routine took her to the gym, where she got serious about slimming down and toning up. On Saturday Mino will display her physical improvements at the Sandra Wickham Fall Classic, a B.C. Amateur Bodybuilding Association competition at New Westminster’s Massey Theatre. The Coquitlam resident hopes to impress and shine at the event, which is expected to attract 300 athletes. Through daily workouts and changes in diet, Mino has dropped nearly 60 pounds. The most important change has been in her outlook. The compliments from friends and family are terrific, but the sense of achievement tops all. “I look in the mirror and don’t recognize that person,” she said. “If you are dedicated to something, you can do anything.” Her journey in bodybuilding is relatively short, since this will be her first competition. It is shaped by her mother’s journey that involved getting married at a young age, giving birth in an Iraqi refugee camp and restarting her life a couple of times — first as an immigrant to Canada, and after a divorce. Mino’s parents, of Kurdish descent, left Iran after the Shah was overthrown in 1979 and ended up in a Iraqi refugee camp. That is where her mom lived for 10 years, where she was married and where Marrianne was born. “Because Saddam (Hussein)’s regime didn’t like the Kurds, my parents remained in the refugee camp for a long time. You see photos of the camp and it doesn’t look like a Fairmont Hotel,” she noted. At just two months old, Mino moved with her family to Canada and a new life. The family’s travels took them first to eastern Canada, and then to the Lower Mainland in 1999. Mino attended Port Moody secondary but graduated from Westview secondary in Maple Ridge. There were many difficult days, stressed by family issues and peer and cultural pressures. Along the way, she learned that her strongest advocate and biggest supporter needed to be the person in the mirror. Until she realized that, her mother provided invaluable support.

Larry Niven photo

Coquitlam’s Marrianne Mino is following in her mother’s footsteps, training to compete in her first Body Building competition this weekend. When Mino decided to hit the gym and train for a competition, which sees women step onto a stage wearing nothing but a bikini before a large crowd, her mother set her mind at ease. “I think role model is an understatement,” said Mino. “She’s been much more than that — she’s my rock. My mom has been extremely supportive through it all, through my whole journey. “If ever I felt a little weak she’s told me how my hard work will pay off.”

A big part of the process was learning about diet and fuel. With the help of sponsor Don Gauvreau of SD Pharmaceuticals, Mino restructured her diet to give her a boost in eliminating fats, building muscle and toning. She doesn’t know what will happen after the contest — except that she plans to continue working out and listening to her mother. “We’ve already talked about buying a big freezer and stuffing it with fish,” she said with a laugh.

LOCKED IN: Port Coquitlam bantam AAA Pirates’ Michael Grundy (No. 11) moves in for a shot against Langley during recent minor hockey action in PoCo.

Barzal leads Team BC to u16 win Team B.C. proved too strong to stop, skating to a 9-3 victory over Alberta to cop the province’s first-ever championship title at the Western Canadian under-16 Challenge Cup hockey tournament Sunday in Calgary. Led by captain and Coquitlam native Mathew Barzal, the B.C. boys jumped out to an early lead and didn’t look back. North Vancouver’s Jansen Harkins netted four goals, including three in the opening frame, to lead the attack. “It was a lot of fun meeting new teammates and bonding as a team. I think from the start of it to the end we really grew as a team,” said

Barzal, who was named to the tournament allstar team. It was a perfect bookend to a stellar tournament for the provincial squad, having launched the tourney with a thrilling 4-3 shootout win. Barzal, who skates with the B.C. major midget Vancouver Northeast Chiefs, said the difference between their first meeting and the championship final was about work effort. “In the first game I don’t think we played a full 60 minutes, but in the final we did… It was  CONT.

I just have to keep my feet moving and focused on every shift. You can’t take one shift off, because you could be injured or cause a goal. It’s a very quick pace,” he said.

Meanwhile, his major midget team soldiered on without the B.C. circuit’s leading scorer, falling 6-3 and 6-0 to the second-place Vancouver Northwest Giants. The back-to-back losses ended a six-game unbeaten streak for the Chiefs. “The [first] game was a lot closer than it looked — Vancouver got a couple of goals off funny bounces late,” remarked coach Doneau Menard. “It was disappointing to see us come out flat in the second game.” The Chiefs play the Fraser Valley Thunderbirds this weekend, including a home tilt, Sunday 11:45 a.m. at Coquitlam Planet Ice.

Bob was a great person who loved his wife, children and grandchildren dearly. He will be remembered for the great example he lived by everyday by putting his family first. He also will be remembered for his great sense of humour and wacky antics that always kept us laughing. His spirit will be carried inside the hearts of all who knew him. Memorial contributions may be made to McKenney Creek Hospice in Maple Ridge and/or the Canadian Cancer Society. Service to be held at 2:00 pm, Saturday November 10th, 2012. Burquitlam Funeral Home, 625 North Road, Coquitlam, BC

Cancer June 21-July 22: The accent lies on romance, creative urges, beauty, charming children and speculative luck (all highlighted Monday/ Tuesday). But don’t start anything new in any zone. An old romance or former creative project might return – if so, judge it on its own merits. Why was it abandoned in the first place? Sunday’s for home, kids – all’s fine. Midweek brings chores, health matters (both lightly) – charge ahead in practical matters, dispose of piles of routine tasks. Relationships excite, opportunities surge, and cobwebs dissolve Friday/ Saturday. True love’s possible: but no one new. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Start nothing new before Nov. 26 – especially in areas of domesticity, real estate, children, security, pension programs, gardening and nutrition. (These are highlighted Monday/Tuesday, but pick up and march ahead with old, former projects – e.g., those stones you haven’t moved in the garden – or ongoing ones. Plant nothing, buy nothing significant.) Wednesday/Thursday bring romantic notions, earthly beauty and pleasure. (But don’t ask someone new for a date.) Chores, health concerns and dependents fill Friday/Saturday. If a former realty bargain resurfaces, hook it. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Start nothing new (and buy nothing significant) before Nov. 26, especially in communications, travel, reports, paperwork, applications, distribution. In these, mistakes and delays can occur. An application submitted now will tend to be buried and forgotten by the recipient. Have a Plan B, re-check wallet, credit cards, supplies, itinerary, etc. Make a list before doing errands. Sunday favours you in money areas. Paperwork, travel and communications are highlighted Monday/Tuesday. Stick close to home, security position midweek. Romance, pleasure, “winning” Friday/Saturday!

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: A link evolves. The accent remains on secrets, research, sexual urges, investments, debt and partnership money, hidden meanings and health diagnoses, especially Monday/ Tuesday. Changes, commitments or break-offs you make will have magnified consequences down the road. This is the month on which your life pivots. That said, don’t start anything new before Nov. 26. Deal with old or ongoing sexual, financial and similar situations. (A former sexy one might return.) Relationships reach agreement Sunday. A mellow, loving mood flows in Wednesday/Thursday. Be ambitious late week. Taurus April 20-May 20: Remember, start nothing before Nov. 26: stick with former or ongoing people, projects. That includes relationships, contracts, negotiations, relocation, dealings with the public and advertising – and agent contacts. In the meantime, a former relationship, relocation opportunity, negotiation, etc., might reappear (especially Monday/Tuesday). Trust your instincts on this – if this link was good “back then,” good again: if bad, bad again. Mysteries, opportunities and a sexy person fill midweek. Love of a gentle kind flows over you Friday/Saturday. Work, co-workers are pleasant. Gemini May 21-June 20: Start nothing new before Nov. 26 – especially in work, machinery, with dependents and health. DO NOT buy machinery. A former (incomplete) chore – or work role – might return (all month, but particularly Monday/Tuesday). Perhaps a repair must be redone. A former co-worker or lover might return – the lover’s not beneficial. Sunday’s romantic: express your feelings. Relationships, opportunities and fresh horizons fill Wednesday/ Thursday – but only leap if these are “old new” not brand new. Sexy urges and “financial significance” arrive Friday/Saturday – research, dig deep.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Money remains the top topic. Make as much as you can – without, however, starting new projects nor seeking new clients. (Clients gained before late November would become a real headache in future – not their fault!) Start nothing new or significant before Nov. 26. Former money sources (or old bills you owe) are likely to resurface. Your talents shine Sunday. Money, earning, selling and sensual attractions highlight Monday/Tuesday. Do errands, travel, or communicate midweek – but watch mistakes; make a list. Head for home Friday/ Saturday: relax, repair home and relations. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Your energy, charisma and optimism remain high; others are attracted. But “effective” might be the missing quality, as you will find it hard to advance ongoing ventures, and even harder to successfully start new ones. Stick to the old and ongoing until Nov. 26. A former (abandoned) financial, investigative, sexual or health matter might return: if this was good then, it is now; if bad, bad now. Rest, contemplate Sunday. You impress others Monday/Tuesday. Chase money (not new money ventures) Wednesday/Thursday. Buy nothing important. Late week is busy but not hugely important. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Continue to rest, retreat, contemplate – be spiritual, charitable. Start nothing new before Nov. 26. Instead, protect ongoing projects from mistakes, missed appointments, etc. A former acquaintance might reappear: this person might offer you some shelter or solace, but otherwise is not a good one for you to hang any hopes on, especially love hopes. Sunday’s for optimism and entertainment. Avoid competition Monday/Tuesday. Your energy and charisma return somewhat midweek – get things done! (But don’t start the new.) Chase money Friday/Saturday. Buy nothing important.

Nov. 11 - 17, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Start nothing new before Nov. 26. Instead, stay with ongoing projects, ventures and relationships, or welcome those that return from the past. A former fine group of friends, a light, playful lover, or a past venture (it always made you feel hopeful) might reappear. Judge the former venture on its own merits. DON’T indulge in planning sessions now – even those returning from the past will fall into confusion. Be ambitious Sunday. Playfulness, optimism and social delights fill Monday/Tuesday. Retreat midweek for a breather. Your energy and charisma soar Friday/Saturday! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The accent remains on ambition, career, prestige relations, reputation and dealings with authorities, parents and the boss. Remain ambitious, but realize new starts are likely to go awry. Even ongoing situations hold some delays, mistakes and misunderstandings. Be gentle, humorous, and patient. Start nothing important before Nov. 26. Sunday’s wise, loving. That ambition stuff strikes Monday/Tuesday – all’s fine, just DO NOT be fooled by money fantasies. A former career role or boss might return. Happiness visits you midweek! Retreat, rest, contemplate Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your mind floats to rarified levels this week, especially Monday/Tuesday. Legal, educational, far travel, cultural, love and intellectual pursuits fascinate you now. Remember: start nothing new before Nov. 26. You might stumble across something you wrote or filmed long ago. My advice: don’t resurrect it, as you could muddle its message even more. However, a chance to revisit a foreign shore, to visit your old campus, or speak with an old flame, should be grabbed. Sunday’s mysterious. Be ambitious midweek. Happiness, optimism and social joys arrive Friday/Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca
