Alleged thief faces 20 charges Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com

An alleged prolific lottery ticket thief will have to answer to more charges when he faces a judge next week. Coquitlam Mounties announced additional charges against 37-year-old Anthony Bakker in connection with more than a dozen robberies in the Tri-Cities and around the Lower Mainland. Bakker is now facing a total of 20 criminal charges for 10 robberies and two thefts in Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam, six robberies in Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge, and two robberies in Burnaby. Coquitlam RCMP arrested him on Jan. 4 after he allegedly tried to steal a handful of lottery tickets from a liquor store. Bakker was originally facing three counts of robbery with a weapon and one count of theft. “Robbery section investigators from Burnaby, Coquitlam and Ridge Meadows detachments seamlessly worked together on this investigation, much like an integrated team,” said RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung in a statement. Bakker has been held in custody since his arrest and is set to appear in a Port Coquitlam provincial courtroom on Thursday. Investigators originally believed the suspect was behind as many as eight convenience store robberies of scratch lotto tickets in the Tri-Cities. The first robberies took place during a two-week span between Nov. 29 and Dec. 13.

Three divas plan night of Oscar fun Tickets still available for party at Coquitlam City Hall, which starts at 4 p.m. Sunday John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com Their titles as councillors, therapists and event planners will be temporarily cast aside for one night, because come Sunday, it’s all about the diva. The third-annual Tri-Cities Oscar Night gets underway at 4 p.m. in the Coquitlam council chambers, and as in years past, the big show is being headed up by the “three divas” — Coquitlam Coun. Selina Robinson, Port Moody Coun. Diana Dilworth and event planner Polly Krier. Now in its third year, the event represents an opportunity to take in

the Academy Awards on a pair of big screens situated both in, and outside, council chambers. Though meant as a fundraiser for organizations across the Tri-Cities, the event also gives attendees a chance to live the life of the beautiful people, even if for just one night — red carpets, paparazzi and champagne are the norm. “From the moment you get on that red carpet and come to our event, the whole point is to make everybody feel like they are a celebrity,” Dilworth said. The evening kicks off at 4 p.m. with a red carpet drawn and local paparazzi — courtesy of CKPM radio — cover-

ing all aspects of the big-ticket arrivals. The awards show begins at 5 p.m. “And it will start off with valet parking — because you are special,” Robinson added. The three charities selected as beneficiaries from the fundraiser are the Coquitlam Foundation, Port Coquitlam Foundation and Port Moody Foundation. In years past, charities included the Crossroads Hospice Society, SHARE, the Society for Community Development, the New View Society, KidSport Tri-Cities and the Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation. “This year we decided that because Port Coquitlam has a new foundation,

that we would do something totally different,” Krier said. “The three foundations are a nice mix, because we have three divas, three cities and three charities.” And while the actors win on the big screen, those in attendance will win in person as well. Six major prize packs, each named after movies that have previously won Oscars, will be doled out over the course of the evening. Everyone in attendance will be given ballots asking them to predict award winners, and as the winners are announced, the ballots will be drawn and the prizes will be awarded.  CONTINUED ON PAGE 4, see OSCAR.

Turn in your guns

While the U.S. might corner the market on guns in North America, there is still no shortage of the weapons in this province. So in June, the provincial

government, along with police departments across B.C., will be offering a gun amnesty in an effort to collect unwanted and unauthorized guns from the public. According to a Ministry of Justice press release, for the entire month of June, people who want to surrender ammunition or weapons, including imitations and replicas, can contact their local police and provide basic information on the items they want to surrender. Police will visit homes to pick up the firearms, so

residents should not bring guns or ammunition to police themselves. The amnesty will not apply to weapons or firearms used for a criminal purpose. The press release went on to note that similar programs in 1997, 1998 and 2006 successfully removed thousands of guns from B.C. streets. During the four-week province-wide gun amnesty in 2006, B.C. residents turned over 3,213 guns, including 505 handguns, 96,500 rounds of ammunition, a rocket launcher and a machine gun.

Boulevard extension. New Westminster Mayor Wayne Wright told The Record his city has no plans to reopen the debate about the controversial extension. So with a permanent fix for the bridge apparently years away at best, the City of Coquitlam is proposing a short- and mid-term solution. Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart said the city has proposed to its counterpart in New Westminster the installation of a second single-lane or two-lane bridge at the location to open up the area to two-way traffic. He estimated the second bridge could cost a couple of million dollars. And if cost is a problem for New Westminster, Stewart said the City of Coquitlam would be willing to pay for and maintain it in lieu of maintaining the current structure. The mayor argued the onelane bridge has never been good enough and he hopes New Westminster will agree. “This is a river crossing that we both have to work on together,” Stewart said. Although New Westminster rejected the United Boulevard extension, that city’s mayor said something needs to be done to address traffic congestion near Braid and Brunette. Wright questioned whether the City of New Westminster could consider closing Braid Street at Brunette Avenue, which would require vehicles to access the industrial area

The Poirier Sport and Leisure Complex will play host to a cultural melting pot tonight, as east meets west against a backdrop of quintessential Canadiana. A multicultural celebration centred around the Lunar New Year will take place at tonight’s Coquitlam Express contest, and the event will feature lion dances, Chinese cultural dances, Korean drumming and Hapkido demonstrations. The point of the celebration is two-fold: to help newer Canadians, particularly those from China and Korea, integrate into Canadian society, while giving others an opportunity to immerse themselves in Asian customs. That it’s all happening at a hockey game is no accident, as the event carries on with a partnership developed three years ago between the Express and the immigrant settlement group SUCCESS. “Hockey is almost like a social skill,” said Alice Poon, a settlement officer with SUCCESS. “It is a workplace language and you can start a conversation with other people by

The learning process begins with PowerPoint presentations mixing simple English terminology with the most basic rules that govern the sport: the number of players permitted on the ice, what the blue and red lines represent and the type of equipment used.

From there, the students head to the rink to make a visual connection between the classroom terms and the lessons that play out on the ice. “They need to be coached and they need to be told about what the sport is,” Poon said. “They won’t take the initiative to find out because it is so foreign to them.” Outside of learning the ins and outs of the game, participants also work on practical English skills — a discussion about what a puck is also

TAX RETURNS

Both parties face budget questions Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com With an election just a few months away, it’s no surprise opposing local MLAs have a different take on the provincial budget. On Tuesday, the finance minister tabled a balanced budget, but the opposition NDP wasted no time in challenging the numbers. “The clear message is the Liberal budget is not a balanced budget, it is a deficit budget in hiding,� said Port Moody-Coquitlam NDP MLA Joe Trasolini. The MLA has taken issue with some of the projections in the budget, including the selling of provincial assets worth hundreds of millions, and a drop in the annual increase in the healthcare budget from five to six per cent to less than three per cent. Trasolini suggested the government is overestimating revenues and voters won’t buy it when they head to the polls. “This is a budget that will never see the light of day,� he said. But Trasolini’s party

*in selected areas

Liberal MLA Doug Horne defended the budget, calling it balanced “in every sense of the word.� He also criticized the notion the government was trying to balance the budget by selling $625 million in assets, noting the properties aren’t long-term assets held by the government. In one case, Horne noted one of the properties was earmarked for a new hospital in Surrey, but the decision was made to just expand the current hospital, freeing up the unused land for sale. “There’s really not a lot of substance to the argument. It’s not as if we’ve taken a whole bunch of histor-

is facing its own tough questions, particularly what an NDP budget would look like and whether it would run a deficit. He said his party is still analyzing the numbers before releasing its own budget, but noted the NDP believes in a balanced-budget approach over an economic cycle. Some of the details in the provincial budget include a forecast surplus of $197 million for this year, an increase in income taxes on individuals earning more than $150,000, a one-per-cent corporate income tax increase and a $2 tax increase on a carton of cigarettes. Coquitlam-Burke Mountain

adding he’s comfortable taking the budget to the people in the upcoming election. Interestingly, both local MLAs agree parts of the budget appear to be right out of the NDP playbook, like the increase in corporate taxes and taxes on high-income earners. Horne suggested the budget has “taken the wind� out of the NDP’s sails, but Trasolini argued it validates what his party has been touting for the last year.

Ottawa seems to hear, see no evil

A

report from the federal commissioner of the environment last week points out once more the disturbing way Ottawa has failed to address legitimate concerns about B.C.’s pipeline proposals. It’s just the latest in a series of lessthan-reassuring developments. Last month, Kinder Morgan announced that despite one set of figures used in public consultations last year, the company actually wants to ship a lot more oil — meaning more or bigger tankers in Burrard Inlet — or both. This week, federal commissioner Scott Vaughan informs us federal regulators are ill-prepared to address any kind of catastrophic oil spill. In apparent confirmation of what activists have said, Vaughan points out in his report that rules and resources in place to deal with any major oil spill are wholly inadequate. Among his findings: there is no formal process for updating an assessment of risks, no recognition of a huge anticipated increase in west coast tanker traffic and not enough money to handle the costs of cleaning up spills. Any costs not covered would inevitably fall to the public purse. Proponents of the projects, of course, don’t expect to see any oil spills. But that is the nature of disaster preparation — spending money and effort to deal with something we don’t expect to happen. We don’t expect ships to sink either, but we still have federally mandated safety standards and lifeboats meant to carry all passengers on board — not just some of them. Ottawa’s insistence on seeing no evil when it comes to environmental risk should make us all very nervous.

To quote the wonderful Ellen Degeneres, “It’s amazing how much time that we put thought into thinking about what other people are thinking about us, when everybody else is just thinking about what we’re thinking about them.” Basically, if you’re trying to be cool for someone else, then you’re doing it all wrong. Be cool for you. If you’re cool with yourself, then you’re really the coolest you can truly be. If you’ve followed these steps correctly, then congratulations! You’re now the coolest kid in school!

Keep an eye on the public purse

On Sunday, Feb. 17, Joe Trasolini was acclaimed the NDP candidate for Port MoodyCoquitlam for the upcoming provincial election. I am relieved that we will have an intelligent, hard working MLA to critique the budget introduced by the current government, reveal its serious flaws, and hopefully convince the Liberals to make changes prior to adoption. I am very concerned that the province intends to sell off assets to balance the budget. It is short-sighted and will inevitably lead to future deficits and create a drain on our social fabric. Public facilities and lands are essential for growing communities. We cannot turf them for short term gain, especially when British Columbia continues to grow. Public land allows us to provide the recreational and social facilities that promote healthy communities. The current government’s approach is similar to the farmer overspending on an unnecessary glass roof for the hay barn and then selling off the back forty to pay off debts, leaving his children without an inheritance to maintain the family farm. British Columbians should speak out against this faulty

method of budget balancing. Yvonne Harris Port Moody

Fare gates ensure transit consistency Most people who oppose the upcoming SkyTrain fare gates seem to have not realized that part of the reason that TransLink and the Ministry of Transportation want to introduce faregates is so that integration with the upcoming Compass transit fare card can be To The achieved. The Compass Card and the data it obtains from its ability to track the beginning and end points of all transit trips will spawn huge improvements region-wide in transit service optimization and cost-efficiency, and these are what is going to offset the capital and annual costs of the fare gates. Without the fare gates, there would be no way to figure out what trips occur on SkyTrain and no way to optimize based on those trips. That would be counter-productive, as SkyTrain is a part of so many transit trips in the region. The Compass Card concept is the same concept that has already been introduced on the transit system in Montreal, and is used worldwide in transit systems.

For example: in Tokyo, Japan, a single money-containing fare card will grant you access to not just the local metro, JR commuter rail and local bus lines, but also vending machines if you want a snack or a drink or whatever of the many unique items dispensed through vending machines in Japan. Once the Compass Card becomes a part of our transit system, everyone’s going to have a better experience on transit here in Metro Vancouver.

What’s there to hide?

Even though the provincial election is just three months away, NDP leader Adrian Dix still refuses to reveal the NDP’s election platform. Why? Is it so empty that he has to hide it from public view for as long as he possibly can? I think the public deserves to see what sort of plan Adrian Dix and the NDP have for this province. Voters should be able to evaluate the NDP’s platform and weigh it against the platforms, plans and visions of other parties. Unfortunately, all Mr. Dix has done so far is defend his secrecy around the NDP platform by claiming the B.C. Liberals never

revealed their plans this early on when they were in opposition during the 1990s. Well, I almost bought that argument from Mr. Dix until I checked the facts. Not surprisingly, the facts don’t line up with Mr. Dix’s claim. In 1996, for instance, the B.C. Liberals released their platform three months before the election; and that was at a time when B.C. did not have a fixed election date as we do now. And in 2000, the B.C. Liberals released their platform more than a year before the election. These were documents that voters could read and study, evaluate and compare. How sad it is, then, that B.C. voters still have absolutely nothing solid from Mr. Dix this close to the election. His platform and plans remain a mystery. Fred Reemeyer Coquitlam

The first showing features works from Grade 5 students at Aspenwood Elementary, who were guided through the artistic process by Shari Pratt, an artist in residence at the centre. The new exhibit focuses on John portraiture, and the participating students learned the ins and outs of that art through a series of workshops with Pratt, who specializes in mixed-media, figurative acrylic paintings. Above and beyond this weekend’s debut, the children’s gallery will host three other exhibits on a yearly basis. The format will be similar to that of the current exhibit, in that students will attend a series of workshops before presenting their work to the public. The opening of the children’s gallery is slated for 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 23 at the arts centre.

HILARIOUS ROCKIN’ Incoherence rules in this film AADVENTURE... Side Effects

Starring: Rooney Mara, Jude Law, Catherine ZetaJones, Channing Tatum Directed by: Steven Soderbergh Running time: 106 minutes

Side Effects is the first film where I have suddenly swung my arms out hitting a friend seated next to me because of a surprise plot twist. If Alfred Hitchcock were alive, it would be this kind of film he would be making, only a lot better. Similar to Psycho, the first act leads you astray with red herrings, and the second and third act twist and turn before finally pulling the rug from underneath your feet. Frankly, by the end I was a little nauseated by all the changes in direction. It reminded me of being a passenger in a car driven by my mother. Like my mother’s driving the twists do come with a price — in the end the viewer feels as though the whole thing has become a little bit ridiculous. And in a film solely driven by its narrative it is essential that the plot remains coherent.

that was faulty, they could have put 60 or 80 pounds of air in your tires. And that certainly would cause you to bounce off the seat. TOM: One other possibility is that they’re actually bad guys and they sabotaged your shocks in hopes of getting more repair work from you. But I’m going to discount that possibility. RAY: Me too. In our many years of experience, we’ve found that most repair mistakes flow from gross incompetence rather than outright dishonesty. Doesn’t that make you feel better? TOM: So I’m guessing they overinflated your tires by accident. Have someone check the pressure for you, and if the pressure is correct, then go somewhere else for a second opinion about the shocks. Good luck, Patricia.

When it comes to taking care of their vehicles, many motorists prefer to be overly cautious. While thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not necessarily a bad thing, there are times when being too cautious can unnecessarily cost you money. Motor oil, and when to change that oil, has long been a point of contention. Many drivers grew up being told that motor oil should be changed every 3,000 miles (4,800 km). However, that myth has been debunked for many of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vehicles, which should come with suggested intervals between oil changes. According to Edmunds.com, in 2010 the average interval for oil changes was 7,800 miles (12,553 km). In addition to changing a carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motor oil less frequently, there are other things drivers should know about motor oil. â&#x20AC;˘ Oil does not necessarily need to be changed before a long trip. Taking a trip? While itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good to have your car examined before embarking, if the recommended oil change interval is not up, then you do not need to preemptively change your oil. Such a change is likely unnecessary and will not improve the performance of your vehicle during the trip. â&#x20AC;˘ Black oil does not necessitate a change. Conventional wisdom once suggested if the oil on the dipstick is black then it needs to be changed. But nowadays automotive professionals are noting that black oil is doing its job and different additives might be changing the oilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s color, which means the oil doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to be changed. â&#x20AC;˘ You can use petroleumbased oil after using synthetic. Another long-standing myth regarding motor oil was that once you use a synthetic motor oil instead of a petroleum-based oil you have to continue using synthetic oil, which is often more expensive than more traditional motor oil, in order to avoid harming the vehicle. However, automotive professionals have noted that these two types of oils are now often blended, meaning switching back and forth from one to the other is not likely to cause any damage to your vehicle. Just be sure to use motor oil that meets the standards set forth in your vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manual. â&#x20AC;˘ Consider an earlier oil change after buying a new vehicle. Sometimes a new vehicle will need an oil change after its first 3,000 miles. However, this does not mean your vehicle will need one every 3,000 miles. According to Blackstone Laboratories, which studies motor oil, oil samples taken from engines during their initial 3,000 miles of driving had elevated metal levels from the camshafts and pistons.

REAL ESTATE TRI-CITIES PROTECTING YOUR HARDWOOD FLOORS Roughly half of all homes have hardwood flooring, and industry professionals suspect more and more homeowners are looking to hardwood flooring for their homes.

When surveyed, 90 per cent of real estate agents have said that hardwood flooring is a desirable feature in a home. Those agents also say a property with hardwood flooring sells faster than one with carpeting or another flooring option.

With hardwood flooring so prevalent in homes, protecting those beautiful wood floors is a major priority for homeowners. Caring for hardwood floors only takes some common

sense precautions and minimal maintenance. Today’s hardwood floors are often produced with durable sealants that protect the wood underneath or are comprised of composite or reclaimed wood products. But that doesn’t mean precautions should be taken to further protect against potential damage to the flooring. ◗ Place area rugs or mats at the doorways entering the home. This way sand, dirt and other debris can be wiped off at the entryway and not carried onto the wood flooring where it can cause abrasions over time. ◗ Pay careful attention to which types of shoes are worn on the

floors. High heels or cleats can damage the wood. Removing shoes prior to walking on the floor is a safer bet. ◗ Choose the right type of cleaner for the floor. Do not assume just because a particular cleaner is adequate for wood cabinetry or furniture that it is also fine for wood flooring. Check the label. ◗ Use area rugs and carpet runners on areas of the floor that tend to be high-traffic areas.

SFU basketball’s double danger on the court Raincock-Ekunwe will likely go down as one of the all-time SFU greats Tom Berridge sports@thenownews.com

N

ayo Raincock-Ekunwe started her university career at Simon Fraser with an all-rookie nomination and a CIS national championship title. Now a senior, the 6-2 former Toronto forward wants to bookend her career with the best the NCAA Division II can offer. “To go to the national championships, it would show the SFU program is one of the top programs in the nation. It would be huge,” said Raincock-Ekunwe, who currently leads the Great Northwest Athletic Conference in field goal percentage and rebounds per game. That opportunity will come later when March Madness takes centre court in the conference playdowns. But before that, Raincock-Ekunwe and fellow fourth-year teammates Carla Wyman and Kristina Collins will be honoured at Seniors’ Night at the West Gym on Saturday night. While some outgoing seniors find playing their last home game a sad affair, Raincock-Ekunwe said she plans to focus on the conference game ahead of her. “We’ve never beaten Northwest Nazarene in three seasons. It’s a good opportunity,” she said. The game will also be a further opportunity for RaincockEkunwe to leave an even larger legacy as one of the all-time great players to play on Burnaby Mountain. Last week, Raincock-Ekunwe moved into elite company in NCAA Div. II, registering her 55th double-double in the Great Northwest conference. Although unofficial because of the Clan’s then-provisional status, Raincock-Ekunwe’s career numbers are currently fifthbest all-time. She set a new conference record for double-doubles in her first year in the NCAA and broke her own mark the following year with 24 doubles, earning a second consecutive first team all-star nod. This season, she broke the conference record with her 49th double, scoring 11 points and grabbing 15 rebounds against Alaska Anchorage on Jan. 5. Earlier in the season, she also set the conference single-game rebound record with 24 boards. Her 941 career rebounds to date is fourth best in the conference all-time. Raincock-Ekunwe also has top-10 all-time numbers in total field goals, blocked shots and offensive rebounds. “Rebounding has been my game,” said Raincock-Ekunwe. “I just try to go to the boards every game and get as many as I can.” The two-time Basketball B.C. outstanding university player of the year says she never expected to reach the heights she has. “In my first year, I didn’t think I would be that good. I got beaten up in practice pretty good,” she said. But SFU head coach Bruce Langford says, “she didn’t have a choice.” With three outgoing seniors graduating following the Canadian collegiate title and Raincock-Ekunwe fourth on the depth chart, the former B.C. high school AA MVP from Kalamalka High School was thrust into a starting spot. “I thought she was going to be that kind of athlete, for sure. But things came too easy (for her) as a high school player. She struggled in her first year ... She’s improved her intensity and focus,” said Langford. Raincock-Ekunwe currently leads the nation in field goal

Ron Hole/Burnaby NOW

Simon Fraser University’s Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe leads the nation in field goal shooting, and unofficially sits fifth all-time in the NCAA Div. 2 with 55 career double-doubles. shooting and is second in total rebounds. The Clan is also third overall in the NCAA in field-goal shooting percentage as a team. But with four conference games still left on the schedule before playoffs, Saturday’s matchup with third-place Northwest Nazarene is a crucial test of the Clan’s mettle, said Langford. Earning the program’s first-ever berth into a NCAA national tournament remains the team’s ultimate goal.

“It would be deserving for the kids,” said Langford, “and a shame if we didn’t reach our potential.” For Raincock-Ekunwe, the difference might just come down to her new-found intensity. “I’ll remember most going down to the States and showing the Americans that Canadian girls can play,” she said. “It’s always a good feeling when we beat the Americans.”

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Rest, lie low, deal with head office, government agencies, institutions, charitable and spiritual organizations. Start no new projects nor relationships before March 17. Instead, reprise (or fix) the old, or stick with the ongoing. Sunday’s filled with beauty and pleasant notions, but your advances might be playfully steered aside. Tackle overdue work Monday/Tuesday. Relationships prove important midweek – a great conversation (or news article) and a spiritual awakening or dreamy state occur. Seek changes, health diagnosis, realistic investments and/or intimacy Friday/Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Your popularity grows. Optimism, wish fulfillment, light romance and entertainment increase this week and the next few. Old friends return, old wishes are granted, and former flirty, light romantic contacts reappear. New friends and new projects, if started now to March 16, will tend to twirl brightly for awhile, then fizzle. Sunday’s for home, garden, rest, and rejuvenation. Romance calls Monday/Tuesday – your creative, speculative and expressive skills rise up. Tackle familiar chores midweek. If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em Friday/ Saturday – great things come from partnering! Gemini May 21-June 20: Start no new projects, ventures or relationships before March 17. Until then, protect ongoing projects, especially in career and dealings with authorities. They, and bosses, and parents, are gripped by indecision until then. Be ambitious (not ambiguous). Shore up your position, secure recent advances, Monday/Tuesday – or rest and nurture family, for they are the support for your ambitions. Earlier, Sunday’s for short trips, friends and curiosity. Romance and creativity lure you Wednesday/Thursday: but they conflict with your need to grow. You get a lot of work done Friday/Saturday.

Suites/Partial Houses

Cancer June 21-July 22: Chase money, buy/ sell Sunday – garage sales intrigue. (Don’t buy anything big and important.) Short trips, details, communications and paperwork fill Monday/Tuesday (avoid government forms). Focus on home, kids, real estate, security and nutrition midweek. Friday/ Saturday hold romantic/creative success– which fits superbly into February/March’s broad cycle of love, cultural rituals, far travel, wisdom and higher learning. You could fall in love! But remember: start nothing, project nor relationship, before March 17. The best romance is ongoing, or is embodied in an old flame. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: You’ve entered the realm of mystery, lust, health diagnosis and hidden power plays. Something might return from the past in this arena – perhaps a former sexy playmate, perhaps a chance to live a lifestyle you once hungered for, perhaps a former investment opportunity. DO research, ask questions, follow the mystery, and deal with ongoing situations/people or those returning from the past. DON’T start a new relationship, project, investment or venture. All this, to March 17. You’re the subtle star Sunday. Chase money Monday/ Tuesday. Paperwork, errands midweek. Home, family Friday on. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: DON’T start new projects or relationships before March 17. Stick with the ongoing, and situations that return from the past – including a possible return of a former partner or someone you wished was. However, this few-week interval seems designed more to make you ponder the big picture of relationships, than to re-instate an old one permanently. It’s as if you’re on a bridge to a very different land of love, and are stalled: not to turn you back, but to make you think. Lie low Sunday. Tackle everything with confidence Monday/Tuesday. Money, midweek. Casual friends late week.

Feb. 24 - Mar. 2, 2013

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Much work faces you, but tackle only routine, ongoing or formerly neglected chores before March 17. DON’T start big new projects, employ new staff, nor buy machinery, tools, computers – lemons abound. A former job might be offered. If you’re seeking employment, canvas former bosses. Sunday’s bright, hopeful, happy. Retreat and rest Monday/Tuesday -- government-related tasks go well. (Though they, too, face delay.) Your energy and pizzazz return strongly midweek, but luck (in love, learning, law and travel) mixes with domestic problems. Your money luck soars Friday/Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: This week goes from better to best! (But don’t be tempted to start a new project or relationship before March 17.) Sunday’s for ambition and community reputation: elevate yours by joining, helping. Optimism, popularity, wish fulfillment and general delight fill Monday/Tuesday: an old flame or flirty friend could reappear . You’re on a month-long winning streak of romance, creativity, sports or pleasure. You can renew contacts on many levels, including business. Retreat midweek to rest and contemplate. Your energy and charisma soar Friday/Saturday – you’ll succeed, attract love. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Don’t start new projects or relationships before March 17, Sage, especially in family, domestic, nutrition, real estate, retirement or security zones. (E.g., you could find new renovations have left no room for the basement stairs.) Stick to ongoing projects, or situations from the past. Clear away neglected home-related chores. Sunday’s mellow, thoughtful, cultural. Show your ambition Monday/Tuesday (but start nothing new!). Happiness, optimism and friends fill midweek. Success assured with institutions, government, meditation, rest, health and research Friday/Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Start nothing new before March 17, Cap, especially in mail, computer, telephony, office systems, stationery, or travel. Don’t buy a car or any equipment. You might rediscover a lost book, letter, photo – or an entire “lost acquaintance.” (Don’t invest too heavily in the last.) Sunday’s secrets will open, if you diplomatically push. A mellow, understanding mood flows over you Monday/Tuesday – love (or the hope of love) is possible! Be ambitious midweek, display your skills: luck accompanies you. Social delights, popularity, light romance succeed splendidly Friday/Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Money’s just an abstract way to mete out power, security, position, food, shelter, clothing, medical, dental...and most love is entwined with these. So chase money now to March 19, Aquarius. You won’t be neglecting love, but supporting it. But don’t start a new project or venture. Stick with ongoing dollar situations, or reprise those from the past. (E.g., sell an old article, or seek a job where you worked before.) Sunday’s made exciting by a sensual person. Sex, secrets and finances, Monday/Tuesday. Understanding, mellow love midweek. Ambition, career Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your energy, luck and charisma remain high, Pisces. Remember, start nothing before March 17. Until then, you’ll remain indecisive about goals, partnerships, opportunities, relocation, and love. Stick with ongoing projects, or reprise old ones – avoid the new. Everything’s smooth this week. Chores call Sunday. Relationships, opportunities and goals arise Monday/Tuesday – though excitement occurs, remember: no new links or projects. Life’s mysteries emerge midweek, but hold few rewards if you solve them. Friday/Saturday bring gentle love, intellectual venues and superb luck. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
