A radio station for locals

Mayors to talk policing Politicians will discuss idea of a regional force

New station, CKPM, will focus exclusively on the Tri-Cities, owner says

jdeutsch@thenownews.com At various times, politicians from all three Tri-Cities municipalities have mused separately about the various policing models for each community. Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam have signed on for the RCMP, while Port Moody continues with its municipal force. In a few short weeks, elected officials from all three cities will get together to discuss another law and order option — a regional police force. The meeting, which is planned for the end of the month, is essentially an education session for politicians, and is set to include guest speakers who will provide arguments both for and against the idea of regional policing. The session was inspired by PoCo Mayor Greg Moore following the release of a report into missing women linked to serial killer Robert Pickton. The 1,400-plus page report, which was based on an inquest headed by former attorney general Wally Oppal, recommended a regional police force for the Lower Mainland. Moore said he saw the issue as a big topic in his own city and figured there was a way for all three municipalities to come together. “Since this is going to be a very topical issue for us in local government in the  CONT.

If you’ve noticed a new sound on the airwaves in the Tri-Cities recently, it’s not your imagination. What you’re likely hearing is a brand-new radio station on the FM dial that is decidedly Tri-Cities. Located in Port Moody, CKPM-FM 98.7 is the Lower Mainland’s newest independent radio station. Broadcasting from a studio still somewhat under construction on Moray Street, the station had a “soft launch” in December playing Christmas tunes. But over the course of the year, the station intends to expand its format to play what’s considered adult-album alternative, while offering a full complement of spokenword and informational programs. While a radio station based in the TriCities solely dedicated to a suburban market might be a surprise to some, it’s nothing new for owner Matthew McBride. The businessman got his start in radio in 1981 working for a variety of stations in several major Western Canadian markets. But after several years, McBride said he got tired of working for other people and decided to pursue his own broadcast business. So he acquired broadcast licences from the Canadian Radio-television Telecommunications Commission in the small towns of Tofino and Ucluelet on Vancouver Island, and in Pemberton. “This is what I do; I start radio stations,” he told The NOW. CKPM will be the fourth station in his stable. However, unlike the major stations that cover Metro Vancouver and beyond, CKPM will be focused solely on the TriCities. “Our focus is not so much on the music we play … but it’s on the content between the music — the connecting to the com CONTINUED ON PAGE 4, see NEW RADIO STATION.

coming year, it makes a lot of sense that we bring in some experts to help us understand this issue more,” he told The NOW. Moore has been in contact with Oppal to have him attend the session as a guest speaker, but nothing has been confirmed. Earlier this year, cities across the province signed on to a new 20-year RCMP contract. But the contract rankled several municipalities and local politicians, who argued cities didn’t get a big enough say in the deal. As a result, several cities waited until the last minute to sign on to the deal, while others said they would consid-

er other policing models when the two-year opt-out clause comes up. Port Coquitlam, along with Burnaby, Richmond and North Vancouver, looked into replacing the RCMP with a city force, but in the case of PoCo, there was no decision to go in another direction. Moore said he’s still undecided about the regional police force idea, but said he expects the meeting to give him a better understanding of the pros and cons on the issue. “Moving forward when the discussion comes up, we can speak to it with more knowledge,” he said. Port Moody Mayor Mike Clay said if the province or different municipalities want to change policing in the

region, his city needs to be involved in the discussion. “Right now there’s a blanket statement in [Wally] Oppal’s report there should be a regional model, but nobody knows what that means,” he said. He said Port Moody officials would also be in the meeting to bring their experience in dealing with a municipal police force. “If they’re [cities] going to be having that conversation, I think it’s important that they know what it’s really like to be on the municipal [police] side, and I don’t think a lot of them do,” he said. Clay suggested in the case of Port Moody, policing costs are higher than with an RCMP force, but the level of service is also greater.

Reggio Program Registration Notice WHAT IS REGGIO PROGRAM? A Reggio Emilia Influenced approach has several guiding principles: The Image of the Child: Children are powerful, capable and resourceful. Emergent Curriculum: Builds from the natural curiosities of children. Sometimes it will emerge from the children’s interests or may also be sparked by the teacher strategically putting out a provocation to see how the children respond or by posing inquiry based questions that deepen learning and understanding. Project Work: In-depth studies that develop out of children’s ideas, questions, and interests. Projects may last for short or extended periods of time and may involve individuals, small groups or the whole class. With teacher support, children choose what materials to use to support their explorations and how to research, share and re-represent their learnings. Representational Development: The arts play a key role in Reggio influenced practice and are integrated into daily activities to maximize children’s development. This is consistent with Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences. The Role of the Environment: The environment is seen as the third teacher. Careful consideration is given to the look and feel of the classroom environment: indoors and out, which are organized for small, medium and large group project work.

Documentation: Children’s learning becomes visible through regular documentation. Teachers take photographs of children in action and they record their words to describe their learning experience. Parent Involvement: Parents are seen as partners in their child’s education and will regularly meet to discuss their child’s development. Sense of Community: Educators work together with all children, families, and community partners/members to create a strong identity and interconnectedness that supports all learners.

Support for trail extension Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com It’s a trail system to span the entire country. The Trans Canada Trail is the two-wheeled and twolegged version of the major highway that links the country together. Now a group is hoping to improve the connection of the trail locally in time for Canada’s 150th birthday celebration. Trails BC, a non-profit group responsible for promoting the Trans Canada Trail in B.C., is proposing a cycling pathway along the north side of Clarke Street in Port Moody that could parallel the Evergreen Line from Moody Street to Queen Street. From there, the group is proposing the pathway could go north and then east to Vintner Street to pick up on the existing Trans Canada Trail on Douglas Street. Trails BC vice-president Leon Lebrun suggested the

At Tuesday’s council meeting, the councillor brought forward a notice of motion to support the idea in principal. Glumac said Trails BC needs the support of council so the group can move forward and look for funding for the project. The motion is expected to be discussed at the next council meeting. The Trans Canada Trail is made up of nearly 400 individual trails and, when completed, will stretch 23,000 kilometres.

You & The Law BUS DRIVER RESPONSIBLE FOR PASSENGER’S FALL

find us on

faceb k

A5

Greta J, 52, was recently awarded $40,000 compensation for a severe knee injury she suffered while riding the bus in Victoria. As she stood to open a window, the bus suddenly pulled away from the bus stop, causing her to fall and her left leg to slam forward into the hard plastic seat in front of her. The judge noted that Ms. J cried out in pain when she struck her knee, and while other passengers asked if she was okay, the driver didn’t. “He looked back to see people around a woman acting as if they were concerned about her.” After pulling into the next bus stop to let several people off, he went to the back of the bus, passing by her to help a passenger in a wheelchair “but said nothing to Ms. J and went back to his seat and carried on with the route.” Then when Ms. J, who was the last passenger left on the bus, got off, “she made a remark about the driver’s lack of concern. She said the driver… explained that he did not see what happened [to her] and that he was busy with the ramp for the wheelchair.” “Ms. [J] tried to hop on one leg towards her home but soon realized she would not make it. A couple leaving a restaurant saw her and took her to the hospital.” The bus driver testified that he only braked slightly for a truck in front of him after he pulled away from the bus stop. But the court found his testimony “to indicate a callous attitude to a passenger in possible distress. The effect is to cast doubt on the safety of other aspects of his evidence.” The court preferred Ms. J’s evidence – “that the movement of the bus from the stop was abrupt and forceful, causing her to fall, notwithstanding she had braced herself while opening the window. There were no exigencies of

traffic or other like explanations for this manner of driving.” Bus drivers must use all due, proper and reasonable care and skill to avoid or prevent injury to their passengers. The care required is of a very high degree. In an earlier case, Jane W, 74, who was sitting in the side bench behind the driver reserved for the elderly and handicapped, got up to take her coat off when the bus came to a red light. When the light turned green, and the driver started the bus moving down the hill, she was still struggling to take off her coat. She lost her balance and fell over, and became quadriplegic. The court concluded that the driver was 75% responsible for the accident. B.C. Transit’s policy requires drivers to wait for elderly or disabled passengers to sit down before putting a bus in motion. The court said this was evidence that bus drivers recognize “there is a higher degree of care required to safeguard the elderly or the disabled” than with other passengers. But the court said Mrs. W was partially responsible too. She ought to have known that the bus would soon start to move after the light turned green, and therefore she should have tried to hold on to something while removing her coat.

Suspects appear in court Stories by Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com A pair of alleged robbers involved in two separate cases will continue to stay behind bars while their trials move through the court system. Anthony Bakker, 37, appeared in Port Coquitlam provincial court via video link Thursday. His case was adjourned until Jan. 17 for a bail hearing. Police believe Bakker is the suspect behind a string of lotto-ticket robberies in Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam in December. He’s facing three charges of robbery with a weapon and one count of theft. Coquitlam Mounties said a suspect was arrested Jan. 4 as he allegedly attempted to steal a handful of lottery tickets and flee from a liquor store. The RCMP first asked for the pub-

lic’s help in catching the suspect prior to Christmas. Investigators believe the suspect is behind as many as eight convenience store robberies of scratch lotto tickets in the Tri-Cities. The robberies took place during a two-week span between Nov. 29 and Dec. 13. ••• In a separate case, the suspect in a string of robberies in the Austin Heights business area also made an appearance in provincial court via video link. Ryan Sheldon McClinton, 28, has been in custody since he was arrested in early November. He is due back in court for a bail hearing on Feb. 7. McClinton is facing 22 charges related to the Austin Heights robberies, including seven for robbery, seven for using an imitation firearm while

committing an offence, seven for using a disguise with intent to commit an offence and one of possession of stolen property. The first of a string of robberies began at the start of August. The suspect originally targeted a coffee shop, store and pharmacy. In one case, the suspect may have brandished a gun. A week later, a suspect targeted four other businesses. In all, police believe the same suspect was responsible for a total of nine robberies, linking the incidents based on suspect appearance. The thief wore a hoodie, balaclava and gloves during the mid-summer robberies. Investigators caught a break in the case after an Oct. 28 robbery where the suspect left a backpack behind at the scene. That backpack revealed clues that eventually led to the arrest of McClinton.

Bizarre incident

Port Moody police are praising the actions of officers for avoiding what could have been a deadly confrontation Wednesday. The incident began just before 10 a.m., when police received a call from a woman who had been in an argument with her adult son while driving. The woman said her son had smashed the dashboard and passenger door of the car with a large hammer. The man, who was described as six-feet four-inches tall and weighing 240 pounds, took off down St. Johns Street once police arrived. A foot chase ensued until the officer lost sight of the suspect as he ran behind the Burrard Public House. As one officer was rounding the corner and another was in the laneway, they noticed the man hiding in an alcove. Police said when the suspect saw the second officer, he raised the hammer above his head and charged the officer still seated in a cruiser. The other officer pulled out his gun and told the man to stop and drop the weapon. That drew the suspect’s attention back onto the first officer. Police said the man once again raised the hammer and moved toward the officer. The second officer drew his Taser and warned the suspect. The suspect dropped his hammer and surrendered. “This entire scenario could have ended quite differently had it not been for the restraint of the officers on scene,” said Port Moody police spokesperson Luke Van Winkel in a statement. Curt Morzby, 39, from Vancouver is facing charges of mischief, breaching his existing conditions, two counts of assault and one count of uttering threats.

Visit to PoCo shooting range leads to arrest Another man with gang ties has been charged with violating a firearms prohibition in connection with a Dec. 19 trip to a Port Coquitlam gun range. Donggu Kevin Woo was arrested in Richmond Tuesday and charged for allegedly target shooting last month, Sgt. Lindsey Houghton, of the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit, said Wednesday. Woo, 25, is well-known to police, Houghton said. He was with fellow gangsters Matin Bin

Laden Pouyan, 31, and Bi Dong Lam, 25 at Port Coquitlam’s DVC Indoor Shooting Range just before Christmas. The trio is linked to the United Nations gang. All three were set to appear in Vancouver Provincial Court Thursday morning. Woo was convicted of possession for the purpose of trafficking in Vancouver in 2007 and received an eight-month conditional sentence and a 10-year firearms prohibition. He also has a conviction in 2008 for breach of conditions. All three were watched by gang police as

they visited the shooting range. All those who use the facility sign a waiver saying they have no prohibitions or other legal impediments preventing their use of the range’s firearms. Pouyan and Lam were arrested Dec. 21.

At the time, Pouyan had four separate court orders banning his use of guns, while Lam had just one dating back to a 2007 conviction for break-and-enter during a home invasion. — Kim Bolan, Vancouver Sun

Warning issued If a guy named Gerry comes to your door trying to sell his contracting skills, it’s probably a scam. That’s the warning from police after a pair of homeowners got a visit from a possible scammer recently. Police said a “door-to-door contractor” visited the two PoCo homeowners on Jan. 9. They became suspicious of the contractor, who called himself Gerry, when they received a quote for paving.

CRASH: A threecar collision in the intersection of Guildford Way and Johnson Street slowed traffic around 4 p.m. on Wednesday. Lisa King/NOW

Their suspicion led them to call the Surrey company Gerry claimed to work for. It turned out the company, which was not identified, has not had an employee named Gerry in 20 years. The company’s owner reported the incident to police after he heard the story from the homeowners. Police believe the suspect may also go by other names such as Jeremiah and Jeremy.

Kudos for Eagle Ridge staff My Mum went into Eagle Ridge Hospital on June 9, 2012 and stayed there until Oct. 22, 2012 when she was transferred to a care home. On Dec. 2 she was re-admitted to Eagle Ridge Hospital and sadly passed away Dec. 10, 2012 at the great age of 96. My Mum was in emergency during both admissions and received excellent care. During her first long stay she was transferred to two different wards before going to the transition unit. On her last stay after emergency she went To The to the Palliative Care unit. I want to give accolades to all the caring doctors and nurses who took care of my Mum during this time. Everyone was so caring, kind and loving not just to my Mum but to me as well. My questions got answered and I felt like I was kept in the loop. No, there are not enough care workers to go around, but they do the very best they can. I only hope our government sees the need for

more nurses and doctors before all us Baby Boomers need to be taken care of. The transition care unit (TCU) at Eagle Ridge Hospital closed down Nov. 15, 2012. Now the elderly who can’t go home again wait in acute care beds for care home placement. All the staff lost their jobs and had to apply elsewhere. Hopefully they all got new positions.The TCU was great because the staff organized outings, lunches and teas for the patients so they had something to do while waiting Editor for placement. They can wait months for placement and acute care beds is not where they should be. A big thank you to everyone at Eagle Ridge Hospital. My Mum and I were cared for.

Our View

The cycle of revenge could haunt Liberals

I

t’s astounding, the knack that B.C.’s political leaders have traditionally demonstrated for inventing new ways to astound us all. Right now we’re pondering the possible rationales for firing Auditor General John Doyle. Serious questions have never been raised over Doyle’s competency as the official independent watchdog over the province’s finances. By all accounts, in fact, he’s done a fine job. Politics aside (the selection process for the job was actually designed to sideline politics), it’s hard to comprehend the BC Liberals’ decision to bump him off the roster. Indeed, the decision to replace Doyle appears to make little sense from even a political perspective. His contract doesn’t run out for months — several months, in fact, beyond the election set for May. The BC Liberals could have delayed their vengeful act against an auditor general who has pointed out their goofs until after the election, when it probably won’t be their problem anymore. Or if they somehow managed to win in May, they could take out their knives then, when it would no longer be another dark pothole for the NDP to point out along the election trail. Doyle’s displacement will certainly be another entry on a list of questionable BC Liberal decisions too long to detail in this small space. But revenge is a recurring theme in B.C. politics. Voters’ revenge over the HST deception continues to hound the BC Liberals. And with the Port Mann Bridge boondoggle beginning to make the NDP’s fast ferries fiasco seem like a spending spree at Value Village by comparison, we’re hoping a Premier Adrian Dix would think harder than Premier Gordon Campbell did before selling it for scrap at pennies on the dollar. The BC Liberals have forgotten that “revenge is a dish best served cold.” Doyle’s dismissal has only heated things up more.

He wrote that end up avoiding the talk again. “Wavin’ Flag” song that was used in The reason why this song makes me some big sporting event or whatever, I My Generation so angry is the fact that it’s making don’t really care. this situation seem very cute and lightBut the song itself is such a terrible Jonah Park hearted. message that it makes me want to throw Guess what?

Imagine being on the other side of the relationship. You’re dating this awesome person and then you’re informed that they never even liked you that much. The relationship was a lie and now you’re sad and curled up in a ball on your bed and listening to Adele. You wouldn’t want that would you? Nobody does. If you start feeling like your boyfriend/girlfriend likes you less than you like them, just tell them that. Unfortunately, you two might end up breaking up but it would still be for the better. What I’m basically trying to say here is just deal with your problems as soon as you can. Whether it’s a problem in a relationship or in school or somebody is just walking too slowly in front of you, do your best to get rid of the problem. Procrastination is stupid, just do it now. Really, go. Right now. Jonah Park is a Grade 12 student at Dr. Charles Best Secondary.

One last look at our childhood

Sisters Svea Henry and Mable Moran unite at 252 Sherwood Avenue in Maillardville, B.C. to share memories of growing up — first in the little white house and later on in the pink stucco house next door. The white house was built in the early 1920s by our father, Gustav Anderson, who emigrated from Finland with his wife Aino and one son, our older brother Ejlert Gustav, to have a better life in Canada. Sherwood Avenue was a relatively short street made of gravel. We pretty well knew everyone on the street. We played hopscotch, tag, skipping and marbles on the street and in the large open field nearby where it was easier to do our way of gymnastics, baseball and any other kind of games we made up. Playtime was fun in our backyard, with plenty of vegetables in the garden. Chickens roamed freely and one cow mooed. Jumping from the hayloft in the barn was fun. We climbed nearby trees and walked through tall grass viewing snakes, birds, etc. Sometimes we wandered as far as the Fraser River and onto the docks, where we shouted up to the ship’s crews for stamps from around the world.

Fraser Mills is where the Canadian Western Lumber Company was, the third largest lumber company in the world at that time. Most of the local parents worked there and when the whistle blew, we knew it was either lunchtime or quitting time of the day. The little white house was comfortable, but we had no bathroom so we had to venture out to the outhouse when needed. Years later, the pink stucco house was built next by our our stepfather, Emil Stenback. It was a much larger home and to our joy, it had a bathroom. Streetcars ran from Vancouver to Fraser Mills. Buses were later added from New Westminster to Fraser Mills. The City limit was at Swift Packing House near the bottom of Braid Street, which was one fare. Pennies were required to go as far as Fraser Mills. Children attended Millside Elementary School to Grade 6. Some of us had a fair distance to walk. We played in the school grounds until a teacher came out onto the school deck with a huge metal bell, which she rang up and down to alert us it was time to go to our classroom. If any child created mischief,

Chamber of Commerce reviews 2012 progress run by the chamber. From the fall of 2011 to the fall of 2012, the visitor centre saw 2,015 people come through its doors. The centre dealt with roughly the same number of tourism related phone calls. The visitor centre also distributed more than 7,600 free Tri-Cities maps and 2,459 Community Compasses, both locally and to other visitor centres around the province. twitter.com/ jercoquitlamnow

Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com Business is their business — and for the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce, business has been pretty good. Chamber officials dropped by Port Moody city council Tuesday to provide an update on the organization’s activities during the past year, noting it signed up 100 new businesses in the last four months of 2012. The advocate for business in the Tri-Cities has also reached 900 members in total, with 145 in Port Moody. But in speaking to council, chamber executive director Michael Hind said the organization has a few top priorities for the coming year to keep its membership growing. He noted one of those priorities is to internally review the membership structure; more specifically how businesses pay membership fees. “Right now you pay by the number of employees you’ve got, but it doesn’t seem equitable the way it works,” Hind told council, adding a proposed change would be a big one, but could open up the chamber to getting more members. The chamber also wants to work on its member outreach. Hind suggested the organization hasn’t been as good as it could be in consulting with members, and is looking to hire a person to engage with businesses in a face-to-face way. The chamber also noted it has activated its public policy committee. Port Moody Mayor Mike Clay applauded the recent efforts by the chamber. He said he was originally

But Clay said the chamber has managed to reinvent itself, specifically engaging more with small businesses. “I really see it being quite a contribution to Port Moody that it wasn’t before,” he said, adding the new executive has been far more inclusive in reaching out to Port Moody.

eltic music, whisky and haggis — it’s as close to Glasgow as you’re going to get in the Tri-Cities. Coquitlam’s Place des Arts will play host to a traditional celebration of Scottish poet Robbie Burns on Saturday, Jan. 19, complete with live music and a Scottish-themed dinner. The menu features roast beef with mashed potatoes and gravy, “neeps” (carrot and turnip mash), green peas and green salad. A vegetarian option includes vegetable barley stew with herb dumplings and a side salad, while dessert delves into the great whisky tradition of Scotland with a whiskysoaked sponge cake topped with a dollop of sweet cream. The haggis gets rolled out prior to the arrival of “Robbie Burns” himself, who will then give John Kurucz way to the sounds of Blackthorn, a Celtic band whose set will lean heavily on songs about Burns. Whisky, wine or beer will also be available at the cash bar. Tickets for the entire evening (concert and dinner), cost $35 for adults, and $33 for students and seniors. Admission for the concert only ranges in price between $13 and $15. Tickets can be purchased by phone at 604-664-1636, in person at 1120 Brunette Ave. in Coquitlam or online at www.placedesarts.ca.

Arts in Brief

Show tonight in PoCo

Describing himself as a “musical handyman,” Maple Ridge native Darren Exley will help kick off the 2013 edition of the weekly fundraising shows that benefit the Crossroads Hospice Society. An eclectic musician who takes on the roles of singer, songwriter, band leader and producer, Exley will perform tonight (Friday, Jan. 11) at The Gathering Place in Port Coquitlam starting at 9 p.m. The evening’s entertainment, however, kicks off with an open mic session that runs from 7:30 to 8:45 p.m. The show costs $5 at the door, and all proceeds go towards the society.

Centre hosts three exhibits

Food-inspired tapestry, conversations through lines and unique outdoor scenery have taken centre stage as part of the three exhibitions at Coquitlam’s Place des Arts that run until early February.

Submitted photo

Blackthorn will headline the Robbie Burns party at Place des Arts. Housed in the Atrium Gallery, Edible Art is a collective exhibit created by two local groups specializing in tapestry: TAPIS (Tapestry Weavers from Vancouver Island) and TWIGs (Tapestry Weavers Interest Group). Each of the hand-woven tapestries in the show relates to a recipe, directly or indirectly, and illustrates group members’ favourites. Ellen Bang’s collection of works, pulled together under the name Unruly Lines, mirrors the grids used to map our various urban communities. Found in the Mezzanine Gallery, Bang’s paintings are not meant to convey specific messages, but rather an artistic marriage of lines, forms, colours and hues. The six-member arts group known as the Passionate Outdoor Painters rounds out the month-long show, with its initial public display. Consisting of works by Jane Appleby, Sue Cowan, Randy Green, Sahar McCullough, Sally Turton and Alison White, the exhibit

includes paintings of spots throughout the Lower Mainland. Edible Art and Unruly Lines run until Feb. 2, while the Passionate Outdoor Painters’ show will be on display until Feb. 23. For details, see www. placedesarts.ca.

Paintings focus on nature

Rosa Chang is nothing, if not eclectic. A former elementary school fine arts teacher and a volunteer at SUCCESS in Coquitlam, Chang is the featured artist this month at the Port Moody Public Library. Specializing in acrylic and watercolour paintings, Chang attained her master’s degree in design, and has also taught industrial design at the university level. Since immigrating to Canada, she’s been planning and implementing volunteer art classes for children through SUCCESS. The library is located at 100 Newport Dr.

Resolve to set financial goals for 2013 by making a plan T

he new year is a time to turn over a new leaf: Get fit or lose weight or somehow improve yourself. That’s commendable, but these are mostly forgotten by, say, mid-February. But there is one set of resolutions you can make — and keep — pretty easily: financial resolutions. And I don’t mean the same old boring stuff like “spend less” or “cut back on credit cards.” That just doesn’t work. When you resolve something vague like, “I promise to spend less in 2013,” that’s a resolution that you’re almost certainly bound to break, probably sooner rather than later. So when I offer up some “financial resolutions,” I mean realistic courses of action that you can start taking right now — and not have to break in three or four weeks. Making a promise, say, “to not spend more” just won’t work, because there’s no goal. Do you mean no more than $1,000 per week? Or more than you’re spending now? Or what? You can see how easy it is to break this type of “resolution.”

comfortably can, but do it consistently. Over time, it can really add up.

Make a plan

Next, resolve to make a plan. I don’t mean a “budget” (although a budget should certainly be part of your plan). I mean assess your financial priorities. Write them down. Are you saving for a down payment on a home? Are you setting funds aside for retirement? Do you need funds for a vacation? Or a new car? All of these require a plan — even if you start with a list on one of those kitchen “to-do” pads. That way, you can set priorities and assess what resources you have available.

Allocate assets properly

If you’re using credit cards to pay for everyday expenses, you could be facing debt problems.

Are you heading into deep debt? Many men and women with heavy debt are vague when asked to describe how they got there, often expressing a notion that the debt seemingly piled up overnight. Though it’s possible to incur a substantial amount of debt in a short period of time, many debtors witness their financial pitfalls gradually increase, with interest rates adding up over time. Men and women who know their debts didn’t occur overnight may have missed the warning signs that they were heading for financial trouble. The following are a few signs that your problem with debt might be on the way to spiralling out of control. • Minimum payments: Every credit card statement includes the outstanding balance as well as the minimum payment due. In addition, statements now include a forecast of when the debt will be paid in full if consumers make only the minimum payment, and those with substantial debt may notice that they won’t be paying off their debts any time soon if they only make the minimum payment. Men and women who can only afford to make the minimum payment on an outstanding balance should recognize that as a warning sign that they are carrying too much debt and should begin an analysis of their finances immediately before that debt gets out of control. • Frequent use of credit: Using credit wisely is a great way to build your financial reputation. But using credit poorly can do significant harm to your reputation, affecting your ability to rent an apartment, finance a vehicle or secure a home loan, among other things. If you find yourself using credit to make purchases you should be making with cash (or a debit card), such as fast food, your morning coffee or monthly utilities, then you’re likely setting yourself up for significant debt in the future. Such purchases have a way of adding up. Before you know it your balance could be higher than you had anticipated and you might have already used your cash supply for other purchases you assumed were affordable. Credit cards should not be used to pay for life’s necessities or everyday expenditures, as doing so only increases your cost of living when you factor in the interest you will have to pay when using credit to pay for these necessities. • Routinely checking balances: Though it’s important to stay on top of your finances, there’s a difference between checking your accounts for discrepancies and checking to determine your available balances. The former is responsible, while the latter suggests you may have a problem with impulse spending. If you don’t have a general idea of what the balances on your credit cards are and you find yourself frequently checking those balances before making purchases, then consider that a warning that you don’t have a handle on your debt. • No savings: One of the most telltale signs that you might be carrying substantial debt, which, thanks to interest charges will likely only increase, is a lack of savings. You should be saving money every pay period. If you’re not capable of saving, then your debts are likely exceeding your income, which puts you on a crash course with substantial debt. If you’re not saving money but you are still piling up debts with purchases made on credit, expect to face some serious consequences down the road. Few people can say they have never experienced a problem with debt at least once in their lives. But those who often overcome issues with debt are those who recognized some telltale warning signs that a storm of debt was coming and acted quickly to keep those debts from becoming overwhelming. — MetroCreative find us on

Plan for the next recession

T

he economy is still reeling from the recession, and the question of when the global economy’s struggles will end remains a mystery. One thing we do know is that when the economy does finally rebound, it won’t remain stable forever, and it’s imperative that men and women prepare for the next recession, even if that preparation begins before the current recession ends. The up-and-down nature of the economy has made it difficult to plan for tomorrow, let alone years down the road. However, there are steps people can take to protect themselves from the next recession. • Expect a recession every few years. One of the best things men and women can do when preparing for a recession is to understand that recession is normal and will likely occur every few years. When the current recession ends, recognize that another one might be right around the corner. Understanding the nature of a recession helps men and women control their finances and be better suited to handle it when it makes its inevitable return. • Reduce debt. Debt is an albatross regardless of what state the economy is in, but carrying significant debt during a recession is like playing with fire. During the current recession, many workers lost their jobs, and even those who didn’t might not be so lucky when the next recession arrives. Paying down debts now improves financial flexibility down the road, and that flexibility could make the difference if the next recession arrives and you find yourself out of work. If you carry substantial debt on a credit card, contact the company and discuss reducing your rates or even transferring the debt to a different card with lower rates. • Save, save, save. Individuals should have an emergency fund set aside for surviving a recession should they find themselves sud-

denly out of work. One of the more astonishing things about the current recession was how quickly many people’s cash supplies dried up. An emergency fund should be enough to pay your bills for at least six months and as much as a year, if not more. Conventional wisdom used to suggest men and women have enough saved to get by for anywhere from three to six months. However, the job market remains so difficult that people can toss that conventional wisdom aside and save more. This might sound simple, but saving has apparently fallen by the wayside. A 2011 poll from the National Foundation for Credit Counseling found that 64 percent of Americans would need to utilize a source other than their savings account to pay for a $1,000 unplanned expense. This illustrates that many simply aren’t saving enough. Start now, even if contributions are small, and don’t stop saving. • Diversify. Diversification is a good investment strategy, but it’s also effective as a professional strategy. With regard to your portfolio, balance your assets and make sure all of your eggs are not in the same basket. With regard to income, examine new ways to make money. Diversify your income by doing some freelance work on weekends or weeknights. Even if the amount you earn is relatively small, it can be added to your savings and, should you find yourself out of work, this extra income softens the blow. • Cut back on monthly expenses. Everyone has monthly expenses they insist they cannot live without. Premium cable channels or monthly trips to the salon might seem like must-haves, but they’re really not. If your savings are especially low or your debt is especially high, cut back on unnecessary expenses until your savings has grown significantly or your debt has been eliminated. — MetroCreative

Save time When the new 10-lane bridge is complete, it will be twice the size of the old one, which will reduce congestion and save you time – you could cut your drive in half. Less idling also means less money spent at the gas pump, with some drivers saving up to a litre in fuel each day. A series of interchanges and overpass improvements provide faster, safer travel to and from the highway. With less congestion and more reliability, you’ll be able to better predict how long your drive will take and make sure you arrive on time.

Wine industry to undergo change in 2013 Wine Sense John Gerum I predict many exciting developments for the wine industry in 2013. Everything from the way we find wine recommendations to the types of wines we enjoy will undergo profound change. Hot new wine regions will include Spain, Italy and South Africa, from where you can still purchase a good-quality wine for $15 or less. Speaking about the price of wine, I believe British Columbians will continue to purchase wine out of province, whether in Washington State or Alberta, because of the outrageous markups the provincial government places on wines, beers and spirits in this province. It should not cost you $25 or more to experience a good-quality wine that retails for $12 in the United States. Continuing the B.C. theme, red blended wines from the South Okanagan and Similkameen Valley will continue to improve as wine makers become more experienced in blending the traditional grapes of Bordeaux, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit

Verdot. Look no further than Tinhorn Creek 2 Bench 2009 red for proof of this trend. However, B.C. wines costing well over $20 will continue to struggle on the shelves of your liquor store as consumers tighten their purse strings and continue to search for value. Wine styles for 2013 will include an increase in sparkling, lighter alcohol and sweeter wines. The monster 16-per-cent

alcohol-level reds of Australia and California will lose ground to fresher, fruitier, more balanced wines with alcohol levels of no more than 13 per cent. Look for new Moscatos, Rieslings and Gewürztraminers as consumers continue their consumption of these styles. Whites are not the only sweet makeover; reds are becoming sweeter as consumers are reacting to overly tart and tannic selections

and choosing softer, more approachable wines. Where do you source your wine recommendations? Chances are that you are looking more towards social media and friends recommending wines instead of wine critics. Younger wine drinkers will set the trend next year for using smartphones to find a bottle for their needs. It’s time wineries really pursued this avenue. My last prediction is the

coolest one I’ve seen in a while here in B.C. Wines on tap are a staple in Europe and Australia, but are only now emerging in B.C. restaurants. There are a number of reasons for serving wines this way — freshness, a desire to be environmentally friendly, etc. — but any hip eating establishment will have a few of these kegs installed by the end of this year. There are lots of interesting trends to think about, but one

trend is guaranteed to stay: wine lovers looking for new wines, interesting new regions and, above all, great taste at a reasonable price. Cheers and have a Happy New Year. • John Gerum is a wine instructor, writer and consultant with West Coast Wine Education.

Foundations launch search for 2013 grant applications The Port Moody Foundation is kicking off its 2013 granting cycle. The foundation seeks letters of interest from eligible non-profit organizations needing financial support in 2013 for projects and programs that will benefit Port Moody and its community members. Grants of $500 to $2,000 may be given. In 2012 the foundation provided more than $5,000 in grants to help local nonprofits fulfill their goals of serving the community. “Non-profit organizations provide the backbone that builds environmentally, culturally and socially sustainable communities,” foundation president Robert Simons said in a press release. “We are pleased that through our annual grant program we can assist non-profit organizations in their work to enrich our community.” Letters of interest should be one page, outlining a project or program that fits with the funding areas identified in the foundation’s mission: social, cultural, ecological and recreational. Letters should be submitted by Friday Feb. 1 to the Port Moody Foundation, 300 Ioco Road, Port Moody, BC, V3H 2V7. A copy should also be e-mailed to paul_thiel@telus.net. The foundation will review all submissions and create a short list of those that best meet its funding criteria. Selected organizations will be asked to submit a more detailed funding application by March 8. For details, contact Paul Thiel, grants committee chair, at

604-936-1104 or visit www.portmoodyfoundation.bc.ca. The Coquitlam Foundation is also accepting applications from qualified individuals and organizations for grants, bursaries and scholarships to be awarded in 2013. The foundation, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary, distributed $90,000 within the community in 2012, including a $36,000 grant from the Coquitlam Builders’ Fund to the Coquitlam Public Library. Information and application forms are available online at www.coquitlamfoundation.com. The deadline for submissions is 4 p.m. on Feb. 15. All scholarships, bursaries and grants will be distributed June 4 at the foundation’s annual awards ceremony. Eligible community groups can apply for project grants up to $3,500 for initiatives involving the arts; other grants are available in the areas of education, health and wellness, seniors, and heritage and conservation. Applicants are also being sought for grants and bursaries being awarded from the new James Gordon Stewart Fund, which supports research into Alzheimer’s disease and kidney disease, to aid patients afflicted by those diseases, and to provide financial assistance to Tri-Cities students attending Simon Fraser University. In addition, the foundation welcomes applications for bursaries, scholarships and grants from its donor-advised funds. Visit www.coquitlamfoundation.com for details.

Score Card

Solid effort equals another loss for Express

Jean Konda-Witte/Abbotsford Times

Coquitlam’s Ben Street is a big part of the Abbotsford Heat’s offence this season, and is on the Calgary Flames radar when it comes to the start of the 2013 lockout-shortened regular season. It’s rumoured Street will be invited to the Flames training camp this weekend.

Street sets sights on NHL onramp Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com

A

chance for some of his mom’s home cooking is just a side benefit to Ben Street’s decision to head west. The centre also felt by inking a deal with the Calgary Flames, who assigned him to the Abbotsford Heat to start the 2012-13 season, he had a closer shot at his dream of playing in the NHL, after two years in the Pittsburgh Penguins farm system. “I was further away when I was 16 in Salmon Arm,” said Street of his current address. “(My parents) just come out over the bridge and a little ways out — I think they’ve been to every game so far. It’s been great for my family, and if there’s a day off I can boot it home and have a home cooked meal from Mom that’s pretty nice, too.” Things change fast in pro hockey circles, espe-

cially when a 16-hour negotiation meeting breaks a stalemate and ends a 113-day long NHL lockout. While Street has been mentioned in newspaper reports as among a handful of Abbotsford players expected to be invited to Calgary’s camp this weekend, as of Thursday there nothing official. But there’s a serious chance, considering Street leads the Heat in scoring with nine goals and 16 assists in 34 games, that the one-time Coquitlam minor hockey product could be in line for a NHL debut soon. “It’s been a bit of an adjustment coming from the Pittsburgh to Calgary (system) in terms of the way they play,” he noted. “Early on there was a bit of an adjustment and learning curve and there are a lot of things I’m learning. There’s been a lot of video, learning what to do, so that if the NHL comes calling and guys go up we know exactly what to do.” Last Friday, the Heat fired 50 shots at the Rochester net but could only tally twice in a 5-

2 loss. A day later, Street was the sparkplug in Abbotsford’s bounce-back 3-1 victory, scoring twice and assisting on the other goal. When it comes to shots, he is setting the pace not just for the Heat, but also the American Hockey League. The 25-year-old directed 10 on net over the weekend to give him 139 over 34 games — 15 more than his nearest rival. He’s taken good natured ribbing from teammates over his league-leading status, but notes it isn’t his focus just to fire pucks at the net. “A few of the guys have let me know,” Street said with a grin. “I’m a shoot-first guy for sure but its not like I’m just shooting absolutely everything. If the shot is there I’ll take it, but if its not, I’ll try and make a play. The coach told us earlier in the year he wanted us to shoot more pucks so I’m shooting as many as I can.” The lockout resulted in some young NHLers  CONT. ON PAGE 32, see STRONG START.

Some good jump in the first period couldn’t counter a big burst in the second. The Coquitlam Express came out with a strong effort over the first 30 minutes Wednesday in their B.C. Hockey League game against the Surrey Eagles. Unfortunately, the high-flying Eagles picked their spots, and proceeded to pick apart Coquitlam’s gameplan. Three tallies midway through the second period gave host Surrey an edge they’d build on in a 6-2 victory. The Eagles got goals from Michael Stenerson, former Express sniper Brady Shaw and Mason Blacklock in the middle frame to create a 3-0 hole for Coquitlam. Craig Wyszomirski made it 4-0 seven minutes into the third before John Siemer put Coquitlam on the scoreboard halfway through the final period. Philip Zielonka added a late powerplay marker for the visitors. Coquitlam outshot Surrey 36-35 but were foiled by netminder Michael Santaguida, who turned back all 23 shots over the first two periods. The Eagles had plenty of motivation in the game, as the win leapfrogged them past Chilliwack in the battle for first place in the Mainland Division. Coquitlam, meanwhile, fell to 16-20-1, three points back of Langley in the race for the final playoff spot. Siemer finished with a goal and an assist, pushing him into second place among league scoring leaders with 20 goals and 29 assists over 37 games. Zielonka, who also had a two-point night, sits 18th overall despite having played just 24 games in the BCHL. The league’s trade deadline was yesterday (past The NOW’s deadline), but head coach and general manager Jon Calvano had commented last week that the club was weighing its options as to whether or not to move veterans for prospects. While a league embargo was placed on announcements of deadline deals until today, the Vernon Vipers’ and Port Moody product Adam Tambellini tweeted Thursday that he had been dealt to Surrey. The 18-year-old, who signed a scholarship deal with North Dakota for 2013-14, stood 11th in league scoring. With 19 games left on the schedule, the Express still has time to overcome Langley for the fourth and final playoff berth. Coquitlam can close the gap this weekend with wins over Merritt tonight (Friday) and Prince George on Saturday, both starting at 7 a.m. at the Poirier Sports Centre.

Wolves settle for a draw in 2013 start

A new year presents new opportunities. For the Coquitlam Metro-Ford Wolves, that hopefully includes upward mobility. The Vancouver Metro Soccer League’s premier squad has its sights set on climbing the charts and breaking out of its eighthplace funk. They started 2013 with what could only be described as a disappointing 2-2 draw with the last place Vancouver Olympics on Friday. Coquitlam was outplayed in the first half by the hungry Olympics, but managed to deliver a stronger showing over the second half.

Trailing 1-0 after Vancouver’s Sasa Plasvic converted a free kick early in the contest, the Wolves tied it up on Russel Huggon’s well-placed shot at the 35th minute mark. Huggon converted a nice cross from Domenic Delli Santi to make it 1-1. The Olympics pulled ahead again just before halftime when Gianluca Zavarise buried a brilliant individual effort behind the Coquitlam keeper. After some time to contemplate their position, the Wolves returned to the pitch as the aggressor but were stymied by Olympics netminder Marco D’Andrea, who stopped both Luigi Pantusa and Huggon on excellent

scoring chances. With 20 minutes left in regulation, Coquitlam’s Anthony DiNicolo fed Huggon who broke free from a pair of Vancouver defenders to score the equalizer — his team-leading ninth goal of the season. Although Metro-Ford had a couple of good scoring opportunities over the final minutes, they were unable to put another ball behind D’Andrea — including a game-saving stop off Huggon. The tie leaves the eighth-place Wolves four points back of fifth spot with a handful of games remaining. On Saturday, Coquitlam hosts Richmond FC Hibernians, a team who sits two-points back in ninth, 3 p.m. at Town Centre East field.

Strong start opens doors for Street  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 31.

being inserted into AHL lineups, like Columbus’ Ryan Johansen and Edmonton’s Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. That has provided players like Street a chance to measure themselves in a tougher climate. And it’s something that the Abbotsford centre has enjoyed. “There are definitely some premiere players here and it’s fun for a guy like myself who is trying to prove myself and I’d like to be trying to do that at the next level.” Last year was his first full season in the AHL, after a meteoric pro debut in 201011 — where he was named the ECHL’s top rookie despite playing just over half a season — and onto the Penguins’ top farm team. He tallied 27 goals and 30 assists over 71 games but saw Pittsburgh’s depth at centre — which features names like Crosby, Malkin and Sutter down the middle — as a tough nut to crack.

Starting fresh with a Flames organization in transition was too attractive to turn down. It also meant that if he didn’t crack Calgary’s lineup, he would be anchored closer to his hometown. “Growing up in Coquitlam was great — I can still remember when they rolled the fire hoses out. I think my dad helped coach and I still keep in touch with some of the guys I knew when I was five or six years old,” he said. “We were always skating at the tiny rink at Poirier, it seemed huge at the time. I really enjoyed it. I was lucky to have good coaches, [and] we had a lot of good players too.” While his route to the pro ranks — which included the B.C. Hockey League, four years and a national championship at the University of Wisconsin, and then inking a free agent deal in the ECHL — wasn’t the easiest to follow on a map, it added up to some rich experiences along the way. While not drafted into the

NHL was a disappointment, his emergence as a prospect demonstrates that sometimes the road less traveled is the best route. “It’s a bit discouraging when you don’t get drafted — growing up as a kid one of the goals you set when you’re four years old is that NHL draft moment… It was the dream but for whatever reason I wasn’t drafted,” said Street. “Immediately you’re disappointed and you kind of think to yourself you’ve got something to prove. By no means was hockey over, so it was a bit of a different path for me, but I wouldn’t really change it.” The next change could be the chance of a lifetime, and one he’s determined to make good on. “Things are faster, guys are bigger at the NHL level so I just have to make sure my execution is perfect. If I get the opportunity I’ll only get a couple of chances so I have to make the most of them,” said Street.

Team B.C. stuns Americans in international football contest

Team B.C. closed out the Football University International Games with a second straight dominating performance on offense, defeating the United States 38-18 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday. Starting quarterback Liam O’Brien from Ballenas rushed for three touchdowns to lead the way as B.C. stunned the United States a 38-18 scoreline. “It was huge,” said O’Brien in an online press release. “The first three possessions all started inside the 50, I think. Coming out there that fast and quieting them down, and taking the motivation out of them, was huge.” Team B.C. also got touchdowns from Mt. Douglas wide receiver Marcus Davis, on a 31-yard pass and catch, and running back teammate Mason Swift, on an eight-yard run. Vancouver College’s Liam Mahara kicked an 18-yard field goal to round out the scoring

for the Canadians. “From the start of the game we came out firing,” said Davis. “That just gave us all the momentum to carry us throughout the game.” With the win, Team B.C., coached by Tom Kudaba of Terry Fox, finished the tournament undefeated. “It’s probably the best experience of my life,” said Mission Roadrunners’ defensive back Kevin Wiens, who recorded an interception for the second straight game. “Going to Texas, playing two games, beating the Americans, I can’t describe how great it feels.” B.C. had plenty of momentum after a dominant offensive performance in Thursday’s 4914 victory over Europe, where Swift caught two TD passes. In that game, they scored on all five of their drives in the opening half of the contest and seven-of-12 drives overall in the game. Against the U.S., B.C. leapt

out to an early 21-0 lead, including scoring on their very first offensive play of the game when O’Brien connected with Davis for the 31-yard TD pass. The U.S. got on the board early in the second quarter, when a failed on-side kick attempt led to the home team marching down to B.C.’s oneyard line before punching it in. Team B.C. answered on their next drive when Swift capped an 88-yard drive with a touchdown run. A field goal gave B.C. a 31-7 lead at half-time. The Americans pulled within 21 points early in the third but B.C. replied quickly with O’Brien’s third touchdown of the night. The U.S. added a late major off a punt return. Team B.C.’s roster included Centennial wide receiver Nathan Lund, and from Terry Fox defensive linemen Brad Lyons and Kyle Sagmoen, offensive lineman Michael Beck and receiver Adrial Sellers.

Clan forward sets new double-double mark Nothing like a little history to help set the table. Simon Fraser University’s Nayo RaincockEkunwe established a new Great Northwest Athletic Conference career record for doubledoubles, helping guide the women’s basketball team to a 75-51 victory over the Alaska Anchorage Seawolves. The Toronto native cashed in her eighth double-double of the season, and 49th of her SFU career, while breaking the old career mark held by former Seawolves player Rebecca Kielpinski. Raincock-Ekunwe scored 11 points and pulled down 15 rebounds to lead all players.

Port Coquitlam’s Kristina Collins topped all shooters with 15 points, including nine from outside the arc. The senior guard also posted a game-high nine assists and got the ball rolling with a three-pointer that began an 11-0 run to start the game. She would close out the first half with another trey to put the Clan ahead 43-16. Erin Chambers and Katie Lowen chipped in 13 and 12 points respectively for SFU. The win pushes SFU’s record to 11-1 on the year, including 4-0 in GNAC action. They play 20th-ranked Western Washington in Bellingham on Saturday.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Stay ambitious. Several prestige trends culminate now, might lift you on their slender wings. To succeed, be diplomatic, show eager willingness, and tackle your duties. Your career – and life status, even life goals – are changing, mightily, this decade: get on the right side of this (ambition) not the wrong side (anger, resentment, rebellion). You might become a parent soon. Sunday’s happy but useless, so just enjoy. Retreat, rest, contemplate, plan, deal with management types Monday/Tuesday: promotion possible. You shine Wednesday to Friday: start projects, seek favours. Taurus April 20-May 20: This is your last week of a mellow, intellectual, understanding, loving mood. Nothing will upset your equilibrium, except possible friction at home. (Very likely if you’ve been fooling around.) You can reduce domestic strife all month by channelling this intensity into home repairs or other useful avenues. Sunday’s ambitious (or they call you “Sir/Madam” at the restaurant). Forego action. Happiness, entertainment, light romance, popularity – these visit Monday/Tuesday: someone’s interested. Retreat, rest and plan Wednesday to Friday. Your energy and charisma soar Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Wrap up deep, changeful things – investment programs, sexual affairs, lifestyle changes, health actions, research or detective ventures. These are reaching a peak this week, but they will also lose their “main steam” by Saturday. Sunday’s affectionate, alert, but stick to routine. Your career gets a mild boost Monday/Tuesday: cast your eye on higher-ups, discern what they want. An air of (again mild) celebration comes Wednesday to Friday: social delights, more friends, entertainment, light romance. Retreat Friday eve, Saturday: your energy fades, but a month of joy begins.

Cancer June 21-July 22: The accent remains on relationships, opportunities and opposition. Opposition will be minimal, as others are inclined to appreciate you, to respond graciously. All month, your lustful, financial, and “detective” sides are strong. You can get ahead by combining ambition and your boss’s resources, especially Wednesday to Friday. You can also stir up a storm of sexual consequences anytime this month. (You might feel like such an adventure Sunday, but little will come of it.) A gentle, mellow, intellectual mood flows over you Monday/Tuesday. The weekend’s happy, flirty, friend-filled. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: It’s your last week of drudgery. Just plod on – Saturday (Jan. 19) will bring a completely new trend of fresh horizons, new contacts and opportunities. Meanwhile, perform tasks so they won’t weigh down your future. Sunday brings relationship impulses, but not much result. Dig deep Monday/Tuesday: you can discover valuable information, secrets, money sources or investment ventures. A love relationship can reach deeply into intimacy. Wednesday to Friday brings a gentle, mellow mood, wisdom, love, acceptance of society’s ways. Be ambitious Saturday: meet people late day, eve. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Give romance one more try. If you’ve been batting zeros lately (last two years) it’s because you’ve just entered a huge, whole, new relationship trend, to last 15 years. Right now, you’re at the adjustment, or try-and-see-what-works stage. Instead of being discouraged, throw yourself into your work – February to June, you could take a giant step upward/forward! Then, mid 2013 to mid 2014, you enter the first real romantic year of this huge relationship phase. (If you just fell into a huge, gratifying romance, don’t listen to me.) Monday to Friday emphasize this message.

604-244-9350

PLEASE VISIT LOVE’S WEBSITE FOR IMAGES & COMPLETE DETAILS: www.lovesauctions.com ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: This week brings the last “home adjustment” for a while (until April or next December). You’ve made the essential change, the crucial choice – for now. Sunday’s creative, romantic, but leads nowhere. Tackle chores Monday/Tuesday – a productive, mild luck aids you. Relationships jut up from the landscape Wednesday morning to Friday eve. Often, this brings choice or the adjustment mentioned above, but this time the change seems to lie deep; it slumbers (unless you live in Asia or Europe). Mysteries, sexual longings, financial coups and lifestyle changes “whisper” to you Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The accent remains on communications, travel, paperwork, casual acquaintances. You are finally receiving some “pro” or affectionate responses to your queries. Stay close to home or in nature Sunday – DON’T start renovations or home repairs, just relax. Romance, creativity, pleasure, self-expression and charming kids call you Monday/Tuesday. Most systems are “go” for these: in fact, it’s a two-day winning streak. Tackle chores Wednesday to Friday. Be careful what you start Friday afternoon. This eve and Saturday bring relationships, opportunities – and potential opposition. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: This is your last week of dancing around the money tree. Money isn’t your biggest trend this winter and spring (relationships and relocation are) – but July onward will see you either buying a big investment (e.g., a home) or landing a lucky money pot. You’re restless Sunday: travel for pleasure, not practical ends. Be home, relate to kids, garden, mother nature, Monday/ Tuesday. All’s well. Wednesday to Friday brings romantic excitement, though it’s really a sensual attraction. The same days favour creativity, pleasure, sports. Tackle chores Saturday. Travel, soon!

Jan. 13 - Jan. 19 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Your energy, charisma and timing remain high. (In fact, your charisma steps up a notch.) Start communications or travel projects Monday/Tuesday. Start domestic, real estate, retirement or foundational projects – or end situations – Wednesday morning to Friday afternoon. Romance, creative surges, arts, sports, pleasure and luck visit you Friday evening to Saturday. (If a romance does begin now, how long it will last is uncertain.) Money flows to you all month – bank it; don’t spend (except on Jan. 22 for equipment, tools, telephony). Work delays will dissolve soon. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Continue to maintain a low profile: rest, contemplate, plan, reconnect with spirit. Be charitable. Visit institutions, government offices. Attend management meetings. Your energy and pizzazz climb nicely Sunday, but it’s hard to take advantage, so relax. Chase money or make purchases Monday eve through Tuesday – all’s smooth, no lemons. Your chatty side emerges Wednesday to Friday: you feel a bit of wanderlust. Wednesday’s best for friendly or “daily business” meetings. Friday night and the weekend bring weariness, and the end of weariness – a month of personal power begins! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your hopes remain high. The last few weeks have invigorated you with optimism, friendship and romantic possibilities. This week is similar, but it’s the last in your run. Don’t delay fun. Sunday’s tiring and yields no net results, so relax, contemplate. Your energy and charm bounce back Monday/Tuesday.Chase money,buy/sell,and catalogue your possessions (even if this is a mere mental runthrough of what you own) Wednesday to Friday. Avoid big purchases Friday. Casual acquaintances appear Friday night, Saturday – paradoxically, right at the start of a quiet, solitude-prone month. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
