Pennies donors needed

The hopes are high, but the donations are low. As of Wednesday, The NOW had received just $1,160 toward its annual Pennies for Presents campaign, which allows SHARE to buy Christmas gifts for Tri-Cities children whose parents cannot afford to do so. We’ve broken the $20,000 mark in previous years, so with just weeks to go in the campaign, we’re urging residents to pitch in and help SHARE have a successful year. Since the Pennies for Presents campaign is run by volunteer labour, every cent donated goes directly to SHARE. If you’d like to help (we accept pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, loonies, toonies, bills and cheques), it’s easy. Cheques can be made payable to SHARE Family & Community Services Society. Coins do not have to be wrapped. Just drop them off at one of the nearly 20 community locations and volunteers will do the rest. The following Tri-Cities locations are dropoff sites (days and hours of operation vary):

Jessica Merritt was only a few years old when her Aunt Patty died in 2003. But the 12-year-old continues to keep her aunt’s spirit alive through her own passion for giving back to those less fortunate. This fall, Jessica raised more than $600 from the sale of her own handmade arts and crafts to adopt two Tri-Cities families through SHARE’s Caring Neighbour program. “It’s important helping people have a happy Christmas,” the Grade 7 Moody Middle School student told The NOW. It was her aunt that inspired the youngster to work feverishly through the summer to get all of the crafts

finished so they could be sold to raise funds. At the time Patty became ill, she was living in Toronto and working full-time. She started having seizures in her 40s, and her health began to fail. She couldn’t work and eventually blew through her savings. But as Jessica’s mom Beth Merritt explained, Patty was too proud and avoided using the food bank. She would walk by, but couldn’t go in. “It took her a long time before she walked in,” Beth said. “Being a proud person, you never think you’re going to find yourself in that position, ever.” Patty would come to rely on the food bank before she died, but in the years since, the Merritt family has been an ardent supporter of SHARE. A young Jessica would donate her

pennies to The NOW’s Pennies for Presents campaign and, in Grade 5 she challenged classmates and raised more than $200 for the SHARE food bank. But this year, she took it to another level. Jessica created hundreds of little crafts and knickknacks, from coasters to magnets, and sold them at a trio of events through the fall. Her crafts proved a hit, raising enough money to help two families at Christmastime — one in Port Moody and one in Coquitlam. Under the Caring Neighbour program, a donation of a minimum $50 per family member is required to purchase a hamper full of basic food items. There is also the option to buy a toy. Jessica decided to buy several toys for the kids of the families to which

she donated. Recently, she saw the fruits of her labour come to a satisfying ending. Jessica got the opportunity to play Santa — or at least an elf — for a day and deliver the hampers to the families. No doubt the families appreciated the gesture, as Jessica noted the children’s eyes lit up at the sight of the toys. “It was so cute,” she said. “It felt good.” It was a proud moment for both daughter and mom. “It’s something we can all do,” Beth suggested. After a successful effort this season, Jessica said she intends to continue to create her crafts and donate what she can to the food bank for many years to come.

Hatchery makes progress with well

Donations still being sought so watershed society can avoid tapping into reserve funds John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com

T

he first phase of a project that will extend the life and viability of the Hyde Creek Hatchery is nearing completion, though members of the Hyde Creek Watershed Society are still looking for donations. An insufficient water supply, coupled with a plug in the old well, prompted the need for a new well at the hatchery, and crews have been working throughout the month to install the new piece of equipment. According to Hyde Creek Watershed Society vice-president Shane Peachman, the first half of the job — drilling the well and installing the necessary pipes — should be finished later this month. From there, the remaining electrical and plumbing work will be completed next spring. The society has earmarked about $76,000 to get the job done, of which about 80 per cent is accounted for. Should society members not meet that funding threshold in time, the remaining money will come out of the society’s reserve funds. “We’re still fundraising,” Peachman said. “We’ve still got applications out there and hopefully some of those come together so that we may not need to take all the money out of our reserve.” The well itself serves almost like a safety valve in times of low water levels. If pollutants enter the watershed, society members shut off access to

That system allows for the pollutants to be purged out of the watershed during the time of year when water levels are their lowest — typically between June and October.

“That’s when we’re looking at the biggest chance of contamination into the hatchery,” Peachman said. “Because the waters are so low, and with backyards going right to the creek, there’s all kind of places where people can introduce chlorinated

Poll shows 51% in favour of bridge tolls Half of Metro residents favour tolls, but most of those south of the Fraser oppose them Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com Support for tolling the province’s newest piece of infrastructure depends on which side of the fence — or bridge in this case — you live.

The survey, which was conducted between Dec. 1 and 5 among 583 B.C residents, found the majority, or 65 per cent, of Metro Vancouver residents are satisfied with the bridge and expect it to save them driving time. twitter.com/ jercoquitlamnow

But when the toll increases to $3 on March 1, 46 per cent said they would seek out new routes while another one third of residents would drive over the bridge less often. Insights West president Steve Mossop said the data suggests the idea of tolls is still not settled among drivers, and it could be a provincial election issue next spring and problematic for whichever party is elected.

Coquitlam Mounties got a call Wednesday from Peel Regional Police in Ontario notifying the force they had picked up Kurt Derksen.

out on a pass at his brother’s home in Richmond when he left the house. Peel police didn’t go into detail about how they found Derksen, but Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung said investigators would be following up with the Ontario force to get more information. He also said Mounties want to know how the patient managed to get to Ontario from Richmond. Chung said it’s not only a relief to get Derksen back in custody for the people living near the hospital, but for the patient himself who needs help.

for about 90 minutes while Mounties searched the area for a suspect. But after a search, police were not able to find a suspect, and the lockdown was lifted.

CounterAttack numbers down vehicle impound and thousands of dollars in fines. Police also handed out three 24-hour roadside suspensions and one three-day roadside prohibition since the campaign began. Other Lower Mainland municipalities are seeing similar low numbers with regard to impaired driving. RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung noted the numbers aren’t particularly high, but he didn’t really have a reason for the change. He noted that cab companies have reportedly been busier this holiday season. “I know that some people are getting the message, but not everyone is,” Chung told

Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com It’s become about as common during the holiday season as a Christmas tree and a Santa in the mall — police out on the roads looking for drunk drivers. Coquitlam RCMP have once again launched their CounterAttack program for the month of December. But in the first two weeks of the campaign, it appears most drivers aren’t mixing their booze with the wheel. So far, Mounties have handed out six impaired driving prohibitions — which means a 90-day suspension, 30-day

In the first two weeks of this year’s campaign, Operation Red Nose volunteers have provided 168 rides home in the Tri-Cities. That number is more than triple the amount of rides in Burnaby, more than double the amount on the North Shore and slightly ahead of Ridge-Meadows.

Despite the extra attention paid to drunk drivers this holiday season, Chung noted the RCMP would continue to target impaired drivers throughout the year. Under tough provincial drinking and driving laws, which were reinstated in June following a court challenge, drivers can receive immediate roadside suspensions, have their cars impounded and face fines of up to $4,000.

The first phase of PoCo’s budget process began this week, as council unanimously passed modest increases in both water and sewer rates for 2013. Water bills will rise by about six per cent over 2012, with a $24 increase proposed for single-family homes and secondary suites. Residents of townhouses can expect to pay $22 more, while apartment dwellers will see a $20 increase. Those increases mean that single-family homes and secondary suites will

be charged $417, while townhouse residents will pay $391 and those in apartments will be charged $371. Sewer fees, on the other hand, will increase by 3.38 per cent, and that number translates to a $10 jump for single-family homes and secondary suites. Those living in townhouses and apartments can expect a $9 increase. The 2013 sewer rates will be set at $306 for single-family homes and secondary suites, $287 for townhouses and $271 for apartments. Fourth and final reading of the bylaw will be heard early next year, while the budget process around solid waste and property taxes will go before council in the spring of 2013.

A sponsorship program is also being offered, with prices ranging from $500 to $5,000 for local businesses to gain exposure and offer their wares. On the high end, the $5,000 sponsorship gives companies the ability to set up promo materials around the various stages where the musical acts will perform. The $500 package, on the other hand, will allow for promotional booths to be set up on the site. We think that the $500 level and all the sponsorship levels represent excellent value to the businesses in Coquitlam in terms of the exposure they can get from the 60,000 people that attend this event,” said Lori MacKay, the city’s manager of parks, recreation and culture services. Staff are expected to report back to council with an update on the plans next year.

Centennial bashes in the works John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com It’s a once in a generation celebration that will be feted simultaneously in two of three Tri-Cities next year. Both the cities of Port Coquitlam and Port Moody will turn 100 in 2013, and plans are already afoot to celebrate those centennials in style. Port Moody will waste little time in commemorating its century mark, as the birthday party gets going in earnest on New Year’s Day. Slated to coincide with the annual Penguin Plunge at Rocky Point Park, the celebration will feature a heated, community tent where historical photographs and artifacts will be on display. Cupcakes, face-painting, live music and magic will also be included in the Jan. 1 event. “The centennial is a major event within a city,” said Robert Simons, president of the Port Moody Heritage Society. “I have a real love for this community and it’s an opportunity to celebrate 100 years and to look forward to

the next 100 years. Fast forward a few months, and city council will re-create a version of the city’s first council meeting on April 7 — heritage vehicles, periodspecific outfits and a review of bylaws from years past will be on the agenda. The celebrations ramp up a few notches in May, when the city’s youth focus committee will take on the role of council at a meeting tentatively set for May 21. A volunteer-driven art project is also tentatively set for May 30, when a group of more than 100 volunteers gather to hang a hand stitched, community-driven piece of art in the Civic Centre Galleria. The summertime kick-off event goes on June 16, when the Yarilo Contemporary Music Ensemble will team up with Colin MacDonald’s Pocket Orchestra to present a concert called Dance With Us. A community parade, coupled with a celebration of Aboriginal culture, is then scheduled for June 22 and will begin at the civic centre. A community picnic slated for Aug. 17 at Rocky Point Park will feature both live

music and a fireworks presentation to cap the evening off. In the Port Coquitlam context, 100-year celebrations will begin on Jan. 4 with a launch event at the Port Coquitlam Rec Complex. Scheduled from 5 to 9:30 p.m., the kick-off will include displays from community groups, public skating and live music courtesy of the Timebenders. Attendees are encouraged to dress up in costumes reflecting various decades in the city’s history. Spirit Week celebrations, which happen Feb. 9 to 16, will include public swimming and skating sessions, while the Illuminating Port Coquitlam exhibit, set to run Feb. 13 to March 7, will see a digital media public art project rolled out that features scenes from the city’s past. The community birthday celebration happens on March 7 at the Hyde Creek Rec Centre, while the grand opening of the heritage centre at Leigh Square is also scheduled for the same day.

Port Moody council OK’s large office tower Stories by Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com A large office tower in a trendy Port Moody neighbourhood has been given the green light by council. City council approved a land-use amendment application following a public hearing Tuesday night paving the way for the construction of new office tower in Suter Brook. The Onni Development Corp. applied for a land-use contract amendment that would allow the company to build a nine-storey tower at 220 Brew St., on the south side of Suter Brook Way where it meets Ioco Road. The plan is to construct a building with ground-floor commercial space and eight office levels in place of a hotel. In total, roughly 26,000 square feet of commercial space and another 141,000 square feet of office space was being proposed.

Though there was no opposition at the public hearing, the amendment wasn’t unanimously approved by council. Coun. Gerry Nuttall was the lone politician to vote against the amendment, citing his wish to see a hotel built at the site, which was the original plan a few years back. “I find it difficult to give up on the notion of a hotel,” he said. “I cannot support this, the city needs a hotel.” While others agreed the city is in need of a hotel, the rest of council appeared to want to move on with the issue. Coun. Zoe Royer said she sees a benefit to having so many jobs near transit, while Coun. Rosemary Small said the city needs businesses to come to Port Moody. The amendment removes all references in the land-use contract to “hotel” or “hotel commercial use.” During the public hearing, a representative from Onni noted an economic study of the

Is it garbage day? Just check the city app It’s often the nagging question in your mind first thing when you wake up in the morning. Is it garbage day today? Starting this Friday, tech savvy Port Moody residents won’t have to ask the question anymore, as the city is rolling out a solid-waste application. The free app, which is available for Apple related products like iPhones and also Android phones, is essentially a calendar that will remind users of their garbage pick-up day. Those who sign up for app, can create their own reminder whether it be through a text message, phone call, e-mail or Twitter. The app program was unveiled at Tuesday’s regular council meeting.

Besides being a way to directly communicate with residents, the city’s communications advisor Leslyn Johnson said the app should also cut down on the number of calls to city operations from residents wondering if it’s their garbage pick-up day. “We’re hoping it will make the service a lot more efficient as well,” she said. A link to sign up to the service will be available on the city’s website main page, while the app will also be available in Apple’s app store. City staff noted over the past year an increase in visits to the city’s website through mobile devices, predominantly the iPhone. The increase in iPhone traffic was taken into considera-

tion when developing the app. Several councillors praised the initiative. Coun. Diana Dilworth called the app a great communication strategy for informing residents. “This is really really good,” she said. Coun. Rick Glumac said having the technology is a step forward and asked if it was possible to have a similar app for other functions of the city. City staff said other apps could be developed in the future and the solid waste one could also be used to give out emergency information if necessary. However, staff noted the focus of the solid-waste app is the garbage schedule.

company’s plan showed the tower could generate between 630 and 780 jobs. The number is based on a projection of one employee for every 250 square feet. A staff report on the project also suggested the office retail space could generate $440,000

in tax revenue based on the 2012 mill rate. The report also noted the development meets the requirements of the Suter Brook sustainability plan and includes features like a green roof and timers to turn office lighting off after hours.

The meaning of compromise Re: “Church bells to keep ringing,” Wednesday, Dec. 12. The problem we have in Canada is we try to make everyone happy. One needs to ask the questions as follows: • How long has the church been there? • How long have the residents been there? • Are they new residents who have moved there despite knowing the bells To The Editor were an issue? If they moved knowingly, then why should the church change? If they moved due to misinformation, [they should] sue the former owners and the realtor for misleading information. The church has made efforts to minimize the noise, yet people still want changes. They obviously do not know the meaning of the word compromise. Justin Hooke Valemount, B.C.

Some of the residents who live near Our Lady of the Assumption Church in PoCo say the ringing of church bells is too loud and too frequent, while the church says it has reduced the sound to accommodate them.

Our View

e’re done being polite. We’re tired of asking nicely. We are absolutely through cajoling, pleading, begging and suggesting. Don’t drink and drive. Consider this a written slap for everyone in the Tri-Cities who has ever climbed behind the wheel of a car with a blood alcohol level high enough to set off a Breathalyzer’s blinking lights. Most of you reading this already know everything that will follow: take a cab, call Operation Red Nose, use a designated driver, sleep it off on your friend’s couch. Out of the thousands of people who went out during the first two week’s of this year’s CounterAttack campaign and had a few beers, some wine, maybe some eggnog with a kick, most were entirely responsible. But during the same period, 10 drivers were hauled out of their cars by Coquitlam RCMP and told they would not be allowed to get back in. Six of them will be spending three months without their driver’s licence. This should not have come as a surprise. The CounterAttack program has been going on for 35 years in B.C. It ramps up around the holidays, but police enforcement of drinking drivers never really goes away — you can be pulled over any day of the year. At this point, we can only imagine that some tiny fraction of you reading this — the same fraction who drink and drive — are just stupid. You can’t even accuse alcohol of making you stupid. Slip the phone number of Operation Red Nose — 778-866-6673 — into your wallet before the festivities begin. Maybe add a cab company number. Or just get your friend to agree not to drink, and say you’ll do the same the next time you go out. If you can’t accomplish these simple tasks, we’re not going to feel even marginally sorry for you when you get carted off to court and watch your car being towed away. We’ll just shake our heads at the never-ending stupidity of the drunk driver.

Unfortunately, no amount of donating will be enough to successfully clothe, warm and feed 100 per cent of the population or achieve the goals set out in Buble’s “Grown Up Christmas List,” at least, not in the near future, but it’s a step in the right direction. And I feel no greater gratitude than knowing how lucky and privileged I am to be able to sit peacefully in front of my tree, sipping from a giant mug of chocolate tea, with 17 years worth of warm Christmas memories.

Frozen head a solid winter plan

just don’t like winter. Every year at this time the ads come on TV, advising me that this is the most wonderful time of the year (humbug!) and that I should get outside, tug on a toque and smell the pine-scented air, preferably from atop a pair of skis or skates purchased from one of my fine local retailers. Unfortunately, I’m only fond of “sports” that can be conducted someMatthew Claxton where warm and preferably dry. Online video games, Scrabble and competitive sleeping are my favourite winter pursuits. Normally, I write about 15 extra columns and a few news stories (“Politicians made people mad” and “Criminals are dumb” can be written weeks in advance) and then go to sleep for two or three months. I’ve missed my deadline to start hibernating for the season. For the serious hibernator, the time to begin is late August/early September, when you should start your all-peanut-butter diet and begin lining your burrow with yak fur.

Winter can be scenic — or a season you just want to escape. a lawsuit against a negligent yak fur vendor from Kathmandu, I am reluctantly moving on to Plan B. I’m going to have myself frozen until next spring. This is a bit pricey, but compared to the cost of three months of gas, food, car insurance, rent and power bills, it’s actually cheap. I do see the irony in having myself frozen to avoid the cold, but a bit of cryonic stasis will leave me thoroughly unconscious. As unconscious as you can get, since I’ll technically be dead. This is also a good way to get out of paying some taxes, FYI. In the spring, I’ll be bathed in a warm bath of goo by technicians who will zap my heart back to life

and get me to sign all my government-mandated reanimation forms on the way out, certifying that I am indeed fully alive and that I do not crave the blood, flesh and/or brains of the living. This year, I might save even more by having just my head frozen. It’s a lot cheaper to get the coconut lopped off and stored by itself. You need a lot less liquid nitrogen, and the head storage unit is the bachelor suite of cryonic holding facilities. I’m still trying to decide what to do with my body. I could rent it out, thus making a profit from my voyage away from the land of the living. There are always UFC fighters looking for

I could also attach a half-empty pickle jar to the neck hole and send it out on the sideshow circuit as “Picklo, the Man With the Pickle Jar Head.” But there are already two Picklos working the circuit, and they hate competition.

Whatever I wind up doing with it, by next March I’ll be ready to have my head sewn back on, and with the delicate nerve fibres in my spine re-attached using Krazy Glue, I’ll be up and about again. Skipping winter is its own reward. No long, dark nights that never seem to end. No mornings spent scraping frozen crow poop off the car windshield. No fighting the crowds of mall zombies for Christmas presents. I’d rather go the pickle jar route. • Matthew Claxton writes for The NOW’s sister paper in Langley.

he images bear names like “Key to Hell,” “Skull in Veil” and “Death’s Dream.” Suffice it to say, this month’s art exhibit at the Port Moody Public Library has somewhat forsaken the standard yuletide scenes to take on an entirely different feel. The library’s December exhibit comes courtesy of Coquitlam’s Jesse Wamboldt, whose works are more akin to a Tim Burton film or images evoked by an H.P. Lovecraft story than anything holidayrelated. “You’d think my work would be on display in October, but I’m kind of excited that it is in December because it will likely be cold and crisp outside — hopefully people can come inside and see my work,” Wamboldt said. A self-taught artist, Wamboldt takes her inspiration from authors who lean towards darker subject matter — Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft and Neil Gaiman — and the imagery that comes through those written words. “I find something more romantic about that kind of art — it’s a side of life that’s not focused on as much,” Wamboldt said. “The things that I read and the artists that I like tend to have a bit more of a darker fantasy aspect to their work and I definitely play off of it.” But despite that penchant for things that creep and crawl, pigeon-holing Wamboldt’s works into a more macabre month — October, for example — wouldn’t do her art justice, according to the library staffer who ultimately gave the display the OK. “Maybe December is an interesting month to have something new and unusual like this,” said Irene Jakse, the library’s program and services coordinator. “But on the other hand, I wouldn’t want to do her work a disservice by labelling it just as being Halloween-like. When I looked at [her portfolio], the wow factor came from the fact that we’ve never had a display like this ever. And the talent in those drawings is very evident.” Wamboldt’s preferred method is pen and ink, though she’s also incorporated acrylic, oil, charcoal and watercolour into the 25 pieces she has on display. But once a given piece is done, it’s up to the viewer to interpret what he or she wants to take away from it. “I don’t think I necessarily have a message. I just hope that people enjoy my art,” she said. “It’s not necessarily all dark and

A

dding to the intrigue of Wamboldt’s display is the fact the 27 year old has never publicly shown her works in a gallery or exhibit-type format. Instead, the Centennial Secondary grad has immersed herself in her work and the literature and music that inspires her.

“I can understand if [first-time artists] are a little nervous, but I think they cut their teeth on us, and then off they go with their careers,” Jakse said. “‘Springboard’ is a perfect way to describe us. You can go ahead and start here with us, but we always do expect great things, especially of the young ones like Jesse.” Wamboldt’s display runs for the duration of December.

Check out these last-minute gift options social events, the task seems to get pushed further and further into December. Soon many are staring down the calendar experiencing sweaty palms. Many others may be putting off holiday shopping simply because of the current state of the economy and affordability.

It’s Dec. 22 and you’ve just barely made it through half of your holiday shopping list. The panic may have set in that you just don’t have enough time to get everything done. This is a common scenario around the holidays. Shoppers have the best intentions to get their gifts early, but whether because of work obligations or

stores and other retailers offer gift card kiosks, enabling you to shop for different gift cards all in one place. ➧ Food and beverages: While everyone is heading to the mall in droves, you can be stepping inside of a gourmet food or spirits store. Splurge on fine cheeses or that trendy bottle of liquor that a gift recipient has mentioned but not yet purchased for him- or herself.

For the scores of shoppers who consciously or subconsciously wait until the last possible minute to shop, there are ways to survive and surprise friends and family with great gifts.

➧ Magazine subscription: A magazine subscription is an easy fix as a last-minute gift. Purchase one copy of the magazine at the newsstand and wrap it up nicely. Put a note that a year’s worth of this periodical is on the way. No one will suspect that the gift was a last-minute thought.

➧ Gift cards: They may not have sentimental meaning behind them, but gift cards are fast and easy. Chances are you can run into a store and be out with a handful of gift cards in less than 15 minutes, depending on lines at the checkout counter. Also, many supermarkets, book-

With fluctuating gas prices, filling up the tank can be an expensive venture. Having a pre-paid gift card can help.

But it’s all worth it to get the item in time. Waiting until the last minute for shopping can induce some anxiety. But knowing about easy gifts for procrastinators can take the stress out of this type of shopping.

Online retailers are also there to help last-minute shoppers. Many online retailers guarantee in-time-for-Christmas shipping even on gifts ordered as late as Dec. 23. However, overnight shipping charges will cost more.

Kids and Christmas gifts: How many is too much? Despite the many messages from all corners promoting a “more is better” philosophy when it comes to holiday gifts, the truth is far more complex — especially for

children. While most parents work hard to give their kids everything they need and much of what they want, it is often hard to draw the line, prompting many well-

intentioned moms and dads to ask, “How much is too much?”

some general guidelines for having a funfilled holiday with just enough stuff.

In general, the answer lies within each family. Parents should purchase what makes sense to them and what they believe their children will use and appreciate. However, in recent years, child psychologists and experts in child development have returned to these questions as economic conditions have forced many families to scale back, both throughout the year and during the holiday season.

Make a gift plan Before setting out on your first shopping expedition, devise a plan that makes sense for your family. If you have younger children, decide on the number of gifts for each. With older children, you might want to establish a dollar amount rather than a gift amount. Once you’ve made the plan, stick to it — no matter what.

Books such as The Pampered Child Syndrome” (Jessica Kingsley, 2006) by Maggie Mamen and “Give Me, Get Me, Buy Me” (HCI, 2010) by Donna Corwin and several others on the same topic offer similar conclusions: When children are given too much over the course of their childhoods, they can develop a serious case of entitlement, become unappreciative of what they have and begin to equate love with “stuff.” And for younger children, receiving a huge pile of gifts in one sitting can be both overwhelming and overstimulating.

Secure your identity when shopping online

Shopping only on the sites of merchants you know and trust is another critical means of ensuring your online safety. However, if you decide to order from a web site you have never patronized before, it’s a good idea to spend a few minutes investigating the site. For starters,

this Xmas!

reliable Internet retailers always include a business address and contact telephone number on their sites, as well as information about site security, their return and refund policies, shipping practices and privacy policy. This information should be easily located on the web site, often along the bottom of the company’s home page. If you can’t find this information or suspect that the business might not be legitimate, contact the Better Business Bureau to determine if there are outstanding complaints against the company.

shop only on sites that use technology that encrypts — or encodes — both your personal and financial information before sending it for payment processing. Encrypting sensitive information makes it inaccessible to anyone outside the system, and all of the web’s major retailers secure customer data in this manner.

There is no denying that shopping online is the quickest and easiest way to zip through a holiday shopping list. With a few clicks and keystrokes, it’s possible to have all of your Christmas shopping done in no time. But as many people have found out — the hard way — purchasing via the Internet can be risky business, especially during the holiday season when shoppers are pressed for time and make hasty decisions. While identity theft and fraud can occur at any time of the year, the holiday shopping season leaves consumers particularly vulnerable to hackers and identity thieves.

Try these ‘green’ tips for the holiday season While the holiday season is a time of joy, giving and religious reflection, it also can be a time of excess. Holiday parties, meals brimming with more food than the average person can consume, wrapping paper tossed aside after minimal usage, and shoppers venturing for miles in cars in search of presents can all prove wasteful. For the environmentally conscious, the holiday season is a great opportunity to put your ideals to use. Although it may seem like a challenging task, going green for the holidays is easier than you might think. ➧ Get a live Christmas tree. Christmas trees are planted expressly for the

purpose of being cut down and turned into holiday decor. Responsible tree farms will plant many more trees than are needed for the purpose of Christmas trees. Be a good steward for the environment and recycle your tree once the holidays are over. Some recycling centres will pick them up for free or a small fee. ➧ Consider giving food as a gift. Food is consumable, doesn’t take up space, and locally grown food does not require shipping or wasteful packaging. It’s an ideal gift for those who already have everything.

Buy

s, sion

➧ Don’t leave lights on for extended periods of time. Homes and businesses bedecked in

holiday lights are staples of the season. However, extra lights, inflatable lawn Santas and other accessories consume substantial amounts of energy. Instead of leaving lights and other decorative items running for hours each night, turn them off after a little while to save energy. — Metro Creative

➧ Cut back on holiday decor. Most people love showcasing their Christmas spirit with decorations. However, many decorative products are produced overseas and shipped over to North America on large vessels that require a lot of fuel. Think about reducing your decorations or replacing plastic and metal decorations with all-natural options. Branches of holly or twigs tied with ribbon to form a natural wreath are just as decorative as store-bought plastic decorations.

A unique feature of the dash is an instrument panel pod that moves in unison with the adjustable steering column. This guarantees the driver always has an unobstructed view of the instrument panel gauges. It’s a power operated feature via a four-way stubby switch lever that can also move the steering wheel closer or further away from the driver. The domed hard top offers front passengers more head room than the coupe edition of the G37. Not surprisingly, rear passenger space is limited, especially leg room. Conveniently located on the front seatback are switches that allow easy movement of the front seats. On a slope, however, the large doors can overcome the spring-loaded stop and tend to swing back.

Infiniti’s G37 combines style with substance

t seems odd to talk about convertibles in the middle of winter, but why not — there is nothing wrong with “dreaming” a bit about warm weather and sunshine. Stunningly attractive, the Infiniti G37 IPL convertible is a real attention getter. Power, performance, personality, seating for four, a retractable hard top that folds neatly behind the rear seat at the push of a switch, wind in hair, what more could you ask for … well, perhaps a trunk that doesn’t disappear when you put the top down. The Infiniti G also comes in sedan and coupe versions and drive goes to the rear or all four wheels. Although all three versions share the same basic chassis with an identical wheelbase, exterior body styling and interiors are unique to each G37 version. The convertible only comes with a rear-drive powertrain and in three trim levels, Sport, Premium and IPL (Infiniti Performance Line). My tester was an IPL, which comes with a hotter version of the 3.7-litre V6 engine, a firmer sportier suspension plus a wheel and an aero package. Colour choices are limited to black or white and there are no options. The extra 18 horsepower from the V6 engine is thanks in a large part to a bigger bore exhaust with massive tail pipes, which also give the IPL a distinctive sound. Engine tuning pushes its max horsepower output up to 7,400 rpm and the high-flow exhaust is a dual design with separate left and right pipes. A 30 per cent reduction in exhaust back pressure is achieved versus the base engine, which uses a two-into-one Y-pipe type exhaust system design. Increased front and rear suspension spring and stabilizer rates, performance shocks, a sport-tuned steering gear and an enhanced 4-wheel disc braking system are other ingredients in the IPL performance transformation. The trunk’s disappearance coincides with the highly entertaining fully automated loading procedure for the three-piece retractable hard top. The folding and stacking mechanism in action is like watching a scene from a Transformer movie — truly an engineering marvel. When the top is all neatly stowed in back, however, there’s only a sliver of trunk cargo space remaining.

Safety

The convertible comes with reinforced front side members, front pillars and body sills, to make up for the reduction in body strength that a fixed roof offers. Concealed dual pop-up roll bars, behind the rear seats, also spring into action and protect occupants, if the car were to flipover in a collision. In a high-speed frontal collision the engine is designed to slide under the cabin and the bulkhead is double-wall constructed for added front passenger protection. The driveshaft also has a break-away feature. Dual-stage front air bags, door-mounted side-impact air bags and active head restraints on the front seats complete an excellent safety package.  CONT.

TRI-CITIES AUTOMOTIVE

GUIDE

Infiniti’s G37 stacks up well against its nearest competitors The Drive

Basic Warranty: four years/ 100,000 km Powertrain Warranty: six

You get that “this car was made for me” feeling soon after settling-in behind the wheel of an Infiniti G37 IPL convertible. Snug supportive seats, controls that are easy to find and use and the top up driver sight lines are better than you expect in a convertible. When started cold, the engine initially seems to lack some power but it quickly builds up steam as the rumble from the exhaust settles into its rhythmic pattern. The IPL’s big bore, easyflow system is considerably louder than the regular G37. The constant drone from the exhaust at highway cruising speeds may be off-putting for some buyers, even though the extra power is inviting. In addition, you also have to push the engine higher into its rev range to feel benefit of the extra grunt provided, which requires a more aggressive driving style. The engine is matched to an electronically controlled -speed automatic transmission with a quick-shift DS (Drive Sport) mode that also provides downshift rev-matching. A delight to use, this transmission can adapt to your personal driving style and has a DS (drive sport) mode, if you’re in the mood for more spirited driving. Solid magnesium steering column mounted paddle shifters allow manual shifts at any time or mode and in manual mode it stays in the gear selected by the driver. The G37 is built on what Infiniti calls a front-midship chassis. It puts heavy drivetrain components in a more central position between the axles and this allows better handling characteristics. Convertibles are always heavier than sedans or coupes, and this car is no exception. What is exceptional is the way it can carve through corners with precision and stability, with the top down it was an absolutely marvellous driving experience.

Chamber applauds mobile business licence

After years of discussion and cooperation between local municipalities, the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce formally announced Wednesday that a mobile business licence has been approved for the Tri-Cities. Naomi Yamamoto, Minister of State for

Small Business, along with Tri-Cities mayors Mike Clay, Greg Moore and Richard Stewart, made the announcement during a press conference at Canstar Restorations in Coquitlam. “[The licence] allows mobile businesses to operate in several municipalities with only one

licence — so business owners can spend less time doing paperwork and more time on making their businesses a success,” Yamamoto said in a press release. “The Chamber is proud to have worked with dedicated staff members from all three cities

on this proposal,” the press release stated, adding that special thanks go out to Couns. Craig Hodge of Coquitlam, Mike Forrest of Port Coquitlam and Diana Dilworth of Port Moody, who brought the Tri-Cities together in order to make the new licence a reality.

Original Joe’s: A neighbourhood pub in name and nature From the 16 micro brew beers on tap, to the personal service to the “Community Pint,” everything about Coquitlam’s Original Joe’s smells local. They may be one of the country’s leading restaurant brands, but Original Joe’s on Austin Avenue has positively immersed itself in the community in its five years plus on the block. So much so that the popular restaurant/bar is considered by

many as their local neighbourhood pub where, to borrow the lines of a famous Boston bar, “everybody knows your name.” “We’ve been in business for just over five years and I’d like to think we’re one of the most popular places to dine and drink in Coquitlam,” said Soleille Cyr, Original Joe’s General Manager. “We’re really a neighbourhood restaurant and bar and have a lot of regular customers.

“It’s not a huge place, so there’s a real personal feel about it and with the attention people receive. We’re all about good food, good beer and good service.” With 16 micro brews on tap - five of them are their very own, the rest are local brewing companies – daily draft and food features and a Monday Night Football jersey giveaway, it’s easy to see why OJ’s has earned itself a place at Coquitlam’s social dining

table. “We also have half price wine on Thursdays, which can see the place very busy,” added Cyr. Talking of being busy, the festive season is in full swing and OJ’s sumptuous set price $25 menu of an entree and dessert has lured in many larger groups for office Christmas parties. “We can and do cater for larger groups and do take-out as well,” said Cyr.

And not satisfied with bringing the neighbourhood to them, OJ’s reaches out into the community in a rather unique way by designating a “Community Pint,” where 50 cents from every sale goes directly to a local charity. The Coquitlam Animal Shelter, Kidsport and Inspire Health have been beneficiaries of the pint – which is Okanagan Spring right now – with more than $200,000 raised for charity at OJ’s across

the country. So, get yourself down to OJ’s for a pint and/or indulge in their range of comfort food for the winter season. It’s a time, as OJ’s says, to “crank up the thermostat with a few new dishes to help you keep warm.” Original Joe’s, 2662 Austin Ave. Call 604 939 4047. Open Monday - Sunday: 11 a.m. to 12 a.m.

CHEDDAR

• ANIMAL: CAT

• ANIMAL: CAT

• BREED: DOMESTIC SHORT HAIR, • NEUTERED MALE TABBY, ADULT Cheddar is a handsome and friendly fellow. He’s been an easygoing cat and has adjusted to shelter life pretty quickly. Cheddar is very friendly and would do well in just about any home environment. He tends to stay out of the way of the other cats and would likely do well in a home with a mellow cat.

• BREED: DOMESTIC SHORT HAIR • SEX: NEUTERED MALE• AGE: GOLDEN OLDIE

Morgan is a big handsome boy with a big voice. Morgan is an older gent, likely 12+ and has some specks of grey around his beautiful face. Morgan loves LOVE and just wants someone to share all the love with. Morgan needs an owner who can handle his talking, as he can get quite loud when he’s demanding attention. Morgan has hyperthyroid condition and takes a pill twice a day to control it. He’s an easy going guy and is no problem to medicate. Morgan would be a candidate for our Foster Program, where the Shelter covers the cost of the medication. Morgan would need to be an indoor only cat.

STU

• ANIMAL: CAT • BREED: DOMESTIC SHORT HAIR • SEX: NEUTERED MALE • ADULT

Stu is a big handsome black cat with a big personality. He’s extremely outgoing and playful and loves to interact with everyone that visits the adoption room. Stu is pretty easy going but does like to bug the other cats (and even staff) by whacking them in the head and running off!! He would be okay in a home with another cat as he seems to be fine living with so many here, and has never been mean to them, just cheeky!

Alice and Frankie (white and light brown rabbits) arrived at the shelter together and we are guessing they are sisters. Bunky arrived separately but decided he needed a few ladies in his life and managed to get in with the girls one day. Since they got along so well, we decided to leave them as a bonded trio. They will need to find a home together as they are so close. We realize what a commitment adopting three rabbits could be so please inquire about Fostering these three buns.

Dreamstime

There’s nothing like a holiday meal to reveal that your kids lack basic table manners. Relax, chat with the kids, laugh and enjoy. Holidays are a time when your children’s general behaviour is on show. Table manners are one example of behaviours that will be on show with friends and families. It is unrealistic to expect your children to have good table manners when you have company, but not when it’s just the family. Likewise, you need to watch your table manners. Otherwise it won’t work.

Good manners include a gracious acceptance of gifts. Teach them to receive all gifts as if they were special and wonderful, even if it’s something that’s wildly inappropriate. “It’s the thought that counts,” sounds hokey, but it is true. So they need to learn to thank people in person when they receive a gift. They learn this by watching you. How do you respond when you’re given a gift? They also learn by being

told. So practise with them before they attend any event where they are likely to receive gifts. Ask them: “What will you say to Aunty Hilda when she gives you a present?” Explain that it’s not whether they like the gift, but recognizing that their aunt cares enough to bring them something, so they are thanking her for her consideration and love. When gifts come by mail from friends and relatives I believe that an old-fashioned thank-you letter is important. I’d suggest that you schedule a time when all the members of the household write their letters. If you sit down with your children it’s a family event and easier for everyone. Don’t engage in any arguments; simply state that you expect them to write. Say something like, “It’s now letter-writing time. I have a list of the people who sent gifts and what they sent, so let’s get to it.” If you really can’t face the idea of regular mail, at least have the kids send a timely email. You can help them by sug-

gesting things they might talk about. Out-of-town relatives are interested in all aspects of the kid’s life, so talking about the school Christmas party or a planned skating outing with friends will be a hit. Plan to take pictures of your daughter with the gift. It’s a real bonus to include them or if she received money she can tell them what she’s planning to buy. Children who are too young to write can draw pictures. Have them draw a Christmas picture of one of them playing with the gift. Of course, the really small kids will offer multicoloured squiggles and lines and I guarantee their art will take a place of honour on the fridge of the recipient. Good manners are a gift that will stay with your children throughout their lives. • Kathy Lynn is a professional speaker and author of Who’s In Charge Anyway? and But Nobody Told Me I’d Ever Have to Leave Home.

Score Card

Club seeks internal options to replace Kerfoot’s offence Just as the Coquitlam Express began the season without centre Alexander Kerfoot, they’ll now have to close out the rest of the schedule without him. Coquitlam coach/general manager announced Thursday that his star pivot is gone for the year, requiring surgery after injuring his shoulder three weeks ago in Kelowna. “There’s no chance he’s coming back,” Calvano said. “He’s going to require surgery, then rehab and all that fun stuff. It should be a four-to-six month situation, in which he’ll then be off to Harvard.” The 18-year-old sniper, who was the Coastal Conference’s Rookie of the Year last season, suffered the injury while skating wide to create a scoring chance, when a Kelowna defender crosschecked him into the boards. Coming off a debut where he posted 25 goals and 44 assists over 51 games, Kerfoot was the centerpiece to the Express 2012-13 offence. As an assistant captain, he was also a player who contributed more than just goals. Many anticipated him challenging for a scoring title. “That was our feeling, he was a top-five, top-10 kind-of-guy. Those were our expectations and I know those where his, too… What makes him a special player is that he is one of those guys who is always competing hard, challenging for the puck, challenging for space. Alexander was defensively attentive and he blocked shots — that’s why he missed those two games at the start of the season.” He also missed seven games in November to represent Canada West at the Canada Junior Challenge tournament for a second straight year. During that span, the Express went 3-4. On paper, Calvano believes he has the players to orchestrate the offence necessary to put up a winning record over the final 24 games. Recent results, however, especially against Mainland Division rivals, have not equalled that optimism. “We need more improved contributions from all over, we can’t keep expecting to win with two guys doing most of the scoring,” Calvano said, referring to snipers John Siemer and Philip Zielonka. “We’ve got three, four guys who haven’t taken the next step that we anticipated, and it’s pretty astonishing how we really struggle in games in our own division.” The club’s record against the likes of Langley, Chilliwack, Prince George and Surrey is 3-11-1 — and a tepid 6-7 at home. “I don’t think any team is an easy win in this division. We play Langley three times and Surrey once before the New Year,” he noted. “If we can take six or all eight points, that will be a good statement to build on.” The Express visit Langley tonight, and host Powell River on Saturday, 7 p.m. at the Poirier Sports Centre before breaking for Christmas.

Port Moody native Marcus Basara, No. 10 for the West Kelowna Warriors, is happy with the choices he’s made during his minor and junior hockey career. The forward sits among the top-10 scorers in the B.C. Hockey League.

Sniper thrives on Interior route Stories by Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com The road to happiness and hockey success has seen Marcus Basara do his share of travelling. He’s experienced championship highs and lows and celebrated personal achievements — all while having a fondness for his Port Moody home. The B.C. Hockey League centre left home as a young teen to spend two years in a Saskatchewan hinterland, but he has fond memories for each stop along the way. Now, his focus is on winding up his junior hockey career with some playoff success with the West Kelowna Warriors. “I’ve had a lot of games here in this building, it’s changed a lot since I was here but it’s cool to come back and have my parents and family and friends here,” Basara recalled recently in an interview at the Poirier Sports Centre.

“This dressing room use to be my home dressing room.” All sentiment aside, Basara had options after two successful seasons with the Notre Dame midget Greyhounds — including in Coquitlam — but he chose the Vernon Vipers. “It’s something I gave good thought to, coming back and playing here,” he said. “At the time I felt the decision to go to Vernon was the best for my career, and it was as we went to the (Royal Bank Cup, where they lost in the 2011 final), which was a great experience. I don’t regret that decision at all.” That experience was what every player covets and one that he chalked up in his first season. However, it wouldn’t be repeated as the Vipers struggled last year, and in their spiral shipped Basara to Okotoks in a swap that surprised the well-spoken centre. But his stint in Alberta was

short, as two days later his rights were picked up by West Kelowna (then called Westside) in what was a happy return. “I think whenever you get traded you have to sit down and think about what you are doing right, what you are doing wrong. It was just a fresh start for me,” he said. As a member of the Warriors, the 19-year-old has become an important piece to the offence, providing veteran leadership as the club pushes rivals Penticton and Merritt for an Interior Division title. Until recently, Basara sat in third place in the scoring race, but has since dropped to No. 7 — tied with another Port Moody product, Adam Tambellini, from Vernon. He’s contributed a team-high 16 goals and 19 assists over 28 games. It’s come in confidence, in knowing that his talents are progressing and contributing to the overall picture. The satisfaction of being on a contender is a good place to grow.

“I think I’ve slowed my game down out there, been a little bit more patient and waited an extra second until the right play opens up instead of the easier play,” he said. “I think that is something that comes with playing more, confidence and maturity in your game and that’s been a big difference for me this year.” Returning to Coquitlam recently gave him a chance to touch base with longtime friends and family. While Kelowna lost, the familiar faces made the journey eventful. “I think the game takes you away from home anyways. You always miss your parents but I get to see them a lot.” Next year, hockey will take him to the University of AlaskaFairbanks, and a new team. “You have a plan for the next four years and where things are going to take you,” he said. It may be a road less travelled, but it’s a journey all the same.

Talons edge past Blues For Scott, a critical piece to success this season will hinge on how quickly the players moving up from junior adapt. “We’re very competitive and we have players with some skills and who seem to have bonded, but it’s a pretty big leap to the senior game,” he noted. “You want to provide them with an opportunity to [pleasantly] surprise you. We just don’t know if they will.” • The Terry Fox Ravens had a banner celebration to mark last year’s AAA provincial championship. The St. Thomas More Knights put a damper on the party. The Ravens dropped their home opener 55-45 on Tuesday. A day later, W. J. Mouat served up a 71-38 defeat. “We actually tied it up in the third quarter, but [Mouat] went on a 27-6 run and it was done,” remarked Fox co-coach Brad Petersen. Trevor Casey led the Ravens with 11 points. On Monday, Terry Fox will host the Fraser Heights Firehawks, 7:30 p.m. in the Fox gym.

Just like that decal on most passenger side mirrors, the competition is closer than you think in the Fraser Valley North senior boys basketball league. The Gleneagle Talons, who a week ago were listed as tied for 10th in the Province’s weekly AAA boys rankings, got a glimpse at how tight the action is on Wednesday when they held off the pesky Port Moody Blues 54-45. “In our first month we were too much hype and not enough substance,” remarked Gleneagle coach Tony Scott of his youthful roster. “[Port Moody] threw up a zone that my kids had struggle reading... [Port Moody coach Alex Devlin] does a real good job and loves to put in a lot of smoke and mirrors.” The Talons got a taste of how tight things will be in the 11-team loop and, like Pitt Meadows and Fraser Heights, sit perfect at 1-0. Their earlier tournament action included a 71-51 loss to W.J. Mouat, who is listed among the honourable mentions in the most recent rankings.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: This week starts with hope – perhaps too much hope, as your logic weakens in the face of fond feelings or fond fantasies. Still, enjoy the friendship, popularity and happiness Sunday/Monday. By Monday eve, retreat to plan, contemplate and rest. You might experience a philosophical difference with someone, or a snag in dealing with government or institutions Tuesday, but Wednesday holds a sparkling love attraction, or a smooth breakthrough in legal, educational or travel zones. Your energy and charisma come roaring back Thursday into Saturday morning – start something ambitious. Taurus April 20-May 20: Focus on career, business, your ambitions and prestige relationships Sunday/ Monday. Though this is a quiet, deep month, involving big decisions in lifestyle, finances and intimacy, lighter notes come midweek, as entertainment, popularity, friends and optimism buoy your spirits. Thursday through Saturday morning, though, seek solitude and quiet; rest, contemplate and plan. This interval might bring a new, lucky idea involving your career, government or head office (or some authority) and the fruits of research, detective work. An investment or financial manoeuvre might be involved. Gemini May 21-June 20: This is your last week of exciting meetings, new opportunities and new horizons (perhaps relocation). Take advantage – make contacts, travel, call, make your bid. You feel wise and loving Sunday/Monday – but don’t blend a love relationship (even worse, a secret or collusive link) with your ambitions/career. By Monday night through Wednesday your actions and reputation will be scrutinized by higher-ups: if you pass, success follows. Be cautious to Tuesday noon, then pursue your goals. You could meet a new love Wednesday. Thursday/Friday bring light romance, social joy and new hopes.

Cancer June 21-July 22: This is your last week of drudgery. Tackle all chores, get them out of the way, because several new opportunities and friendship prospects will arise Friday into late January. You’ll want your energy and time to be free for these. Sunday/Monday feature investments, debt, large finances, sexual urges, subconscious desires, health diagnosis and lifestyle decisions. Midweek emphasizes far travel, wisdom, learning, gentle love. It also brings splendid career/work luck and inspiration (Wednesday). More emphasis on your career, community status, Thursday/Friday. Saturday, happiness! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: This is your last week of “heavy romance” or deep creativity, so don’t waste it. (By “heavy,” I mean deep or significant.) Sunday/Monday bring partnership prospects, exciting meetings, new horizons, opportunities – and potential opposition, even enmity. You might be deceiving yourself about the chances of sex with someone very attractive. Be aware, astute. Midweek emphasizes sex, intimacy, large finances, changes and commitment. True love’s possible – you might even agree to wed. Wisdom, a mellow mood, culture, rituals, far travel, learning – and love – flow Thursday/Friday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: It’s the last week of emphasis on your home, on security, real estate, kids/parents, retirement, etc. Though this zone begins to fade now in terms of big projects, demands and burdens, it now begins to bless you with sweet results and affection, especially Wednesday. However, don’t try to force “home delights” on a partner or prospective mate Sunday. (This day and Monday are for chores: eat and dress sensibly.) Midweek brings exciting meetings, new opportunities. Thursday to Saturday feature sexual urges, financial luck. Friday begins a month of romance, risk and pleasure.

Dec. 16 - Dec. 22, 2012

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The fast pace of paperwork, travel, errands and calls continues – until Friday, when a month of deeper, domestic concerns will begin. Sunday/Monday are romantic – take a risk, collect your reward. Applies in love, and money too. But beware misunderstanding the import of a remark or message about work or health-related drugs. DON’T buy machinery. Midweek brings many chores (tackle them) – and a possible heart-thumping development in love. You might meet a new mate, or “rediscover” one. Thursday/Friday emphasize cooperation, opportunities, barriers and enmity – pick the positive. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Continue to chase money or collect possessions. Friday begins a month that won’t contain the same solidity of reward – so go all out before that day. Sunday/Monday feature home, security, foundations. Don’t let a love of money (or possessiveness) interfere with a slowly blossoming romance or creative project. Midweek emphasizes romance, adventure, risk, self-expression, love, teaching, beauty, pleasure and creativity – but it also offers “sweet luck” (Wednesday) in work/money. (In some cases, sudden love.) Tackle chores Thursday/ Friday. Saturday brings money opportunity. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness remain high. Remain focused on big, important projects, people, relationships. Let the small, the details, paperwork, etc., wait until February – but tackle the most pressing of these Sunday/ Monday. In past weeks you’ve attracted attention (don’t blame me if you’ve hidden from it). Now to Jan. 7 you radiate a subtle charm that can turn friends into lovers, competitors into friends. Remember, until June/12 you have to be the chaser in love and money (if you want luck). Home, midweek. Romance, creativity Thursday/Friday – risk it!

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Stay quiet, restful, contemplative until Friday – then one of the best months of your year begins. Until then, plan nearfuture actions/projects.Chase money Sunday/Monday. A sensual attraction might lure you, but deception or illusion can make you uncertain of your footing, or bring an element of gossip or “sneaking around.” Midweek brings errands, casual friends, paperwork (and newspapers) – drive carefully, as you’re a bit weary. Head home Thursday/Friday – Thursday for rest, Friday for getting ready to launch. Saturday your energy rises: chase romance or grab an opportunity. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Enjoy your social life while you can – Friday brings a month of quietude, rest and recuperation, thinking and planning. But until then, the social delights continue! Your energy and charisma draw others Sunday/Monday: start things. But shop only carefully: (mild) deception invades money matters. Midweek, chase money, pursue new clients, etc. Buy electrical, auto or computer items afternoonTuesday to 2 p.m.(PST)Wednesday.Siblings, casual friends, trips, calls, visits, news, errands and paperwork fill Thursday/Friday. Friendship might turn to romance. Home, rest, Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Remain ambitious. Put your best self forward for bosses, parents, other VIPs – they will favour you now to early January. Be restful, quiet, contemplate and plan, Sunday/Monday. A parent or child might do you a favour – or argue. Your energy and magnetism rise nicely midweek – be bold, see and be seen, ask favours, start projects and relationships (before 2:30 p.m. Wednesday). Your money luck rises briefly Thursday/Friday. Avoid engine/electronic/computer purchases Thursday afternoon. Friday begins a month of social delights, flirtations, wish fulfillment and optimism! timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
